TO LOOK AFTER OUR INTERESTS BANKER MORGAN TACOMA'S GUEST A gentleman said to me to-day: "After all there Is no Issue In tbls campaign," and I ugree with him. There i« no issue in the or dinary political sense. There Ik no Usue such as that which confronted u» In "the last Presi dential campaign, and In every Presidential campaign that has preceded it. There Is no issue. 1 swy. In the ordinary sense, but there lb an lamie In a spe<51Be. distinct sense at this time. There l» an Issue, and what is the issue? As 1 have (aid before, on every night that It has been my good fortune to address the gentlemen whom 1 meet In these meet ing*. I re|KuU it. tti.-ro is tin i£eue. and that tts-ue Is the fajne old itsue of common hun esty. It Is the Imuj<> of a government, decent and honest, conceived and executed solely for the benefit of the people. It In the issue of common honesty. It 1« the l*»ue of good cltl zenahlp a^»ln«t bad citizenship. There Is no grand national Ittsue Involved. It la simply the lwue, •1H> you want Rvod men In office"— that and nothing more. (Applause.) We contend that wo present to you the only sound solution of that question. We do not ruy. that there are not good men on the other ticket. We tin not say thut we are the only honest mm who have been nominated for of fice., but we do ray that the Kojiubllcan con vention was dominated and controlled by the Southern I'aclMc Railroad. unA thnt its ticket was dictated In the law department of the .Southern Pacific and that It was thrown on the streets from Ute window of that depart ment, picked up In the streets, brought Into the Kepubltcan convention and approved by the flfrurr heads « ho ut In the sr-ats of that con vention. lAi'i'luuw > This la not mere Idle rumor, gentlemen. I do not ask you to believe me or to believe the dis tinguished gentlemen who will follow me on this point. All 1 ask of you I* to read the Re publican newspaper*. Read there what they »n.y of the Kej-unllcan ticket ami of the con vention that nominated that ticket. Kead there what they say of every man upon that ticket. Issue Is Honest Government p>«r<HE Twenty-ninth District Demo | crats assembled last night at II Pioneer Hall to listen to a<5- UL dresses by the municipal candi dates. Enthusiastic demonstra tions marked the meeting from beginning to end. Of the many fpeeches made, that of Joseph S. Tobin elicited the greatest applause. . . J. J. Sweeny acted aa chairman. 'After short speeches by Supervisors Booth and Dwyer Tobln "was' introduced. Several times three cheers were lustily given, anil it was some little time before he could be gin his apeeeeh. He said: "When a man hu» been toescd for many days In thick weather and upun an unknown sea, he naturally avails Itimsi-lf of the drat pause In the etorm, the firm ruy of sunHhine, to take his bearings nnd uncertain how far tbe elements . have drlvuti him from hit. true comae. Let u.s Imitate this . prudence, unJ before we flout further upon the waves of this debate glance ut the pmnt frum which we have departed that we may at least be able to" conjecture where we now arc" Th^se, gentWmcn. are the' words of the lin murtai Daniel Webster on opening his reply to Hayne in the United States Senate. ThesKj soothing and eminently proper words are of use to u.s now. Let us turn to the point from which we have deiiarted and oscui taln where wo are now. l^et uh look back to the time when San Franclwo was a vlllHtfc, \u25a0when the water lappi-d the spot wh«re Mont gomery street m<w stretches, when the cikjI where we stand was a fjiiu hill; when the Paluce Hotel site was but a waste of sand, covered with willow ireeH. Let us look 4t that and remember thnt we have grown to be a great city,- and us a great city we demand care, we demand attention, w<a demand good streets, we demand good parks, we de mand, ubove all, honest officials . in public life. (Appluuse.) • . Gentlemen, that Is tho Issue. It cannot be avoided. It confronts you and It confronts me and It confronts all. of us. The men upon the other «>ide are controlled by corporations, nom inated for their own particular, specific pur imiscs. Upon this side I shall only aay in concluolun that you know the men that have be«-n nominated. They have' given you a guarantee- of their honor, their honesty and their ability. It is for you to say whether you will play ih«> fool nnd elect the men who have lt»-u punlw»d forward by the Southern Pacific Railroad and- th» other corporations, or wheth er you will elect the men whom you have al ready had In office anil found honest, compe tent and faithful official*. ! (Applause.) That is the Issue, gentlemen. It Is a. simple one. You are the people to answer It. Think nliout It. and before you decide and cast your vote, remember where your property Interests lie: where your patriotic Interests He, and wherw your Interests as good, patriotic, lov ing ritlzens of San F r rancisco lie. (Applause.) After Tobin's speech nevera! prolonged cheers and a tiger were freely given. Then enme ppoeche» by Edmojid Godchaux, Pat rick lioland, George Dahlbender, Frank lin K. I>nne. Judge Fritz. Justus 3. War dell. Joseph Ka**Ier, Samuel Braunhart nnd District Attorney Bylngton. The meeting: ended with music by the band. The Question uf corporate control ia an old queatlon In Ban Fraiiclncti. It has been tlucKtii-.d out, campaign after campaign, until we are all tired of It. But this Is an unusual presentation of the BUbject, because this is the Hi'Ht time that the Southern Pacific Railroad nnd the allied cortK>ratlonH have thrown off th* iimsk and them(=rlvi!B stepped into 'the arena. Heretofore they have offered some poor unfor tunate uh a tiacrl!lce. " Then, If defeated, they have retired and wald, "We are not In politics." But this time, gentlemen, there they stand In the arena themselves. There Is no dispute. There thty stand. If licked thin time they nay In future say they are nut In politics, but If they do say ho it will be because you had tbe good fcenee tu take a good sound lick at them this time, now that they have exposed theni t>elves In the open view. I toy that It' is un- UMual: It la more tban unusual; It lit tbe- only time that It nan ever happened: Tlw other oay a man who practically con trols thl«- ticket, who nominated this ticket, was asked by a man who is in sympathy with him to a great extent— who contends that the lowering of water rates, the assessing of fran chises and the other screws that we .have put on corporations Justly— I Bay «uch a man who evnetnrit! that this fort of action drives them Into politics, said: "What have you made this awful mistake- for? Why have you nominated such a nauseating, such a horrfblc, such a re volting' ticket? Don't you know that every body says you have deceived yourself and not the public; that they say, and say Justly, 'We know who is behind that mask, that race that U presented to u»; we know it Is the allied corporations and their allies, .the bosses.* Why have you done thin? Could you not put up som« men and deceive the dear old public in the same old way?" And this man who nom inated the ticket eaid he thought then at that time that he had a cinch, and it did not make any difference whom he nominated, and he said: "I am tired of getting 'the' double cross. This thne I put up mon that -when I press. the button I know where they&tand."- (Applause.) ' Vote for Honest Hen. We are fortunate, gentlemen. In being able to take our ammunition frotn the camp of the enemy. We do not. have to manufacture any of our own. We do not have to curry our heavy urtlllery in the. rear. That id all tound tn the lump uf th* enemy. Al\ we nave to do Is to Slve the command "Cbarxe" and - the enemy lump urnuiui and lick their own allies. R«nd them what they Bay of every man upon that ticket from the bead or tuc ticket to thb foot of the ticket. They Bay that no honest man. no honeat man— and that Is the icsue here distinctly— that no honest mun could have ac ct.t'ted a nomination at the hand* of that con vention.

Mr. McKlnley d'scussed the va-icus picr.ks of the Republican platrorm at leastlL In concluding he said no falr mirded proer-^sive citizen could afford to ignore that document and its assur ar>c-*-s The speaker then refprr^i brieflv to Mr. Well? as an h-->nest citizen, who. tf e!#»cte'i. would see that all the planks of the platform are fully lived uo to. nouncement lhat Asa K. Wells, who aspires to the Mayoraity, would de liver an aJdress in which lie would discuss the jpsut-s V>f the campaign, as well us certain editorial Btateajents eritlclzinp his candidacy, served to attract a curious, though not lurjrc crowd. That the audi «aice was mixed as to politics was qu!to evident and a iamcntable lack of spou tanloty wenr.Igh rendered the affair one of the oi^ra boufl'e kind. It was s«:A» o'clock when Mr. Wells, pre ceiling the various candidates for munic ipal office*, numbers of the County Com mittee. Republican workers and others, walked Bpaa the stage. Th«? ba:nl playoa "Marchtr.p Through Georgia." and whex: the Mayoralty nominee seated himself some one in the cailcry shouted ••Three cheers for Mr. Wells." One feeble cheer followed and then came st-veral hisses. which effectually checked the attempt to arouse enthusiasm. Mr. Wei's bowed his tlia.nks with a sickly smile and Maurict; 1». At-her, the chairman of the evening. signaled to the band to play. The incident cast a damper upon t'r.e assemblage, the chilling: e3eci of which was distinctly fell throuciiout the evening. Chairman Asber cauied the meetirs to order and without oratorical effort Intro duced Dennis E. McKlnlay a.< the lirst epeaker. Mr. McKlnlay s^iid the present cairsr^Jcn was an Important one and that the people at Sar. Francisco were taking a deej> interest ia the outcome. He re sumed : THE Republican municipal camll dates opj>earoil in forco at tho xcass-mooiing hild in Metropoli tan T»ciir)le la^i night. The an- eulogy of Mr. Wells. In which his name was made to rhyme with "bells" and "tells" and "sells." Aftei an encore. In which Mr. Tobln was ridiculed to the tune of "Dolly Gray." the chairman in troduced Mr. Wells In the briefest pos sible way. Then followed the weakest display of onthusiasm ever witnessed. . A Military voice demanded three cheers anil u continuous uproar followed, In which hisses were too plainly apparent. Some of the candidates on the platform sought to liven the flagging enthusiasm of the audience by setting on their chairs and wildly wavlnp their hats. The attempt was abortive, however— the audience re tus»a to enthuse. A second attempt was made -with like result, a_nd when the out burst died away line a -sigh, Mr. Wells began his speech. The address was -ungrammatlcnl, illogi cal, in no sense argumentative, but in eve: y way pitifully devoid of those quali ties which should mark the expression of sentiments by a "man whose talents should qualify him to till bo Important :i post as the mayoralty of a city like Sun Krunciseo. In his remarkable oratorical (cat Mr. Wells stultified himself an.l his party nominees for Supervisors by declar es that there were some good men In the present Hoard of Supervisors and that the charter was responsible for it. His allusion to the old "solid nine" ami his declaration that there were some pood men even among that body made his* most ardent admirer wlnco with pain. When finally he talked of the surplus as belrp an excellent campaign document, forgetful of the fact that the surplus was the result of the work of a Democratic Board of Supervisors, a howl of derision arose. Mr. Wells coughed, stammered once or twice and then took his seat. Mr. Wells* address, tuken down by an expert stenographer, Is a follows: Democratic Board Praised. X~adles and Gentlemen.^ My Friends: This greeting Is indeed pleasing. liven though I should be defeated for the affU-e for which 1 have btcfl nominated tills tecrinion Is an oasU In the campaign that will be looked back to with pleasure in all of my days. I appear before you this evening as your can «1Uai© «oi* tv> say a, few wortis- -not to raabe a speech. Speechmaktng will follow m> remarks. I have served time in the City Hall (Laugh ter.) I think that I know much about the needs, the requirements that axe necessary to properly conduct tbe affair* of our city eov trmuent. I Know that the Mayor U clotheO with extraordinary lowers and that most peo ple are art to think that he It tbe whole ihlnp. iLaught»r.) That Is notao. Without the aid or a harmonious Board of Supervisor* the Mayor Is comparatively liurrnNs*. and he has a hot place. Therefore I ray It Is Im portant, very Important, that he should be Mirti.>u:s«!«-<1 liy a Hoard of Supervisors of the »ame political faith a> himself. You Mv.- th«» Mayor a BoarJ of ciuperv i»ors of one-half Dem ocrats and ontr-hajf Kei>ubllca.ns and It Is hard to My what will come of It. l>ut you give him a Heard «>r Supervisor* of the same political faith as himself, and If the administration Is not what It should b»- the party ltcWf la re- FiHMtsible. I know that much has 1*.ti sal>> bbout our present Uoard of Supervisors as t>e inr a very good tonrd. It la tiald that a .ka'l Indian is a pood Indian. Perhaps our rhaitor has something to do with our present hoard's belnjr a tcnod board. They are the first Board of Supervisors that has served und«*r our new •"iiart.-r, and you know that the Hoard of Su r«rv1s»ors has no patronage. The lioard of Supervt^re cannot fcrm a rin*. unless It has In its number at least fourteen. In the ©!<1 famous board of the ••jJjIld Nine" lh«-re were rozne very good men. but they wcrs not wilder the control of the charter. I know that there were able men In that board, and If they had been In the present Board of Supervisors they rolrht al«o have been good Supervisors. There Is another point which I wl?b to touch ujwr sod that is that eAmpalrn cry of • lar rlu«." I know jonirthl.ni: al-,ul that surplus, myself. I know that there wns a tax levy to raise a fund for a linking fund for th* bonds.. There v«t al*o an appropriation for Interest to i ay the Interest en those bonds. Well, there were no bonds. i-onsequenUy there ,w«s no sinking fund required and there was no In terest required, and ytt thrre was jmOPg ai propriated for that purpose. Now, you take naurht from IS3.CC0 and thete. is a surplun of KS.noO. A surplus Is a very nice thlr.st. I remember that once In my life I workeO for $!<> a month for four y^ars and at the end or that four years I had a surplus. I appre ciate a surplus, and I know that when you talk o? a surplus as l-'lrc saved by an ad ministration of the city fcovernment It I* a very Fircns factor.' I Ao not know of any bet ter campaign argument unless It should be Ji^.ttO surplu*- But. my friends. I do not Intend to enter Into an arirument here this evenlnr and on 'his occasion. These thought* come to me and I think: they are pertinent to the lsiue. I believe that If you will irtve me a harmonious Hoard of Supervisors that we two can make a pretty »ood ehowlnjr. And In this connec tion I would ask you If you are entirely satis fied with the J1S/«)O.C*0 that has been expended by this present "trood" Uoard of Supervisors? \u25a0What can be said about the promises that If they were put In offlre they would run this city government for I4.000.caj a year. What have we sot to show for all of those promises and with this lance expenditure of money? I think that even an ordinary administration could do about as well. At all events I am wllltnic to to* it myself If you give me a chance. Indies and g*ntl»:nen. I thank you for this reception. The Press Is IHscussed. P. A. Bergcrot. chairman of the Repub lican County Committee, waa next Intro duced. He provoked laughter In the be- Kinnlnt; by referring to "nandlotlsm nearly a. century ai?o," but what was meant by the. statement was not explained. He then alluded to the pre?s a» n factor of modern civilization when lt.« opinion.* are honestly advanced, but "when it wallows in the mlro of blackmail and llb«*l the people will repudiate it and Us principle*." Tbe speaker was eloquent and forceful on thla point, but probably through inad \'«»rtenec neglected to admonish his Jiear *rs that the people will alno repudiate thfs principles advocated by a n»*W5paper vhose opinions have been purchased for $7500. The speaker praised" an cventnflr • news paper for Its advocacy of Mr.. Wel'n.and alluded to the course of The " Call i as fol lows: _, \u25a0 _ It must be rzM that the Morning. Call Is Juat corarnenclni? to *e<. the folly of Its wnya and 'Is awakcolni: to a realization of the, fact- that a Ki-'at and Imminent danger is ttireatenlnc tkc I<eople of Pan Francisco, and Indirectly the l-x'ple of the whole State of California. • Twice this w»ek already It has uttered a timely cry cf warning to the- pr-ople of this city. It Is to i,*. hoped, my fellow dtlzrns, that the well known public spirit of lta vro prietor will outw«ilt;h and rart aside the puny r<:-s*:ntm»-nt li* may ferl from hla recent d<? .'< at. which Is a thing of the past and 'should be forgotten. «nd we may exj^ct within the next ftw «]«ys 10 see tbe Morning Call follow In the wnrthy footsteps of the Bulletin by manfully and enthuMextlcally advocating the election of Mr. Wells for Mayor. And why should It not do so? • The Mornlna; Call cannot but concede that Mr. Welts la now, a« he has always been In the past, a plain man of th»r people and In rUrnp sympathetic touch with the, people and with all the people. His Is not In any f>ense a partisan candidacy. He represents all conditions and situations ttnS classes of the population, hla ftaccexsfut and Interesting carrer leading- up from the hum ble carpenter's bench, where he brgan. to the hitch political office which he now so worthily fills. Victory Is Predicted. Myron E. Wolf on being Introduced said that tho Republican party was tho last to make Its bow to the public, but that affr November 5 it would be the first to acclaim It* victory to th« world. The Democratic meeting of Wednesday even ing was referred to as a ,"Phelan-Tobln pink t*a." Resuming .he said:. Th* question ban been a«k«1 how rrp*ldent It'.'*»-v<-it would vote if hf wen; here. I will t»ll you. He would Investigate the character of the randidatrp for Mayor and make the illx cov«ry that Mr. Wells began life as a carj><»n t«r arid row. from the rnnk of employe to that »>f employer.

Schneller, 1412 Avon street, 1* Croese, Wls., writes: ''Hypnotism truly reveals the •ecrets of life and the mysteries of nature. Mr own father could not have convinced me of lta wonderful power U I had not actually tested It tor myself. I consider a knowledge of It Invaluable to those who wish to get the most out of life; to those who wish to achieve suc- cess and live up to the fall measure of their possibilities." \u25a0 Mrs. Efne M. Watson, MartlnsvUle. Ind.. write*: "Hypnotism opens tbe road to health, ha&plaess and prosperity. It should be studied by every one. 1 would not part with my knowl- edce of it for any amount. The instructions have developed within me a. forc« of character. and ability to influence and control people that I did not dream I could acquire." J. W. Cling cr. M. D.. Springfield, Ohio, writes: "I have tucd the methods of hyp- notism taught by tbe American Cotlesjv of Sciences In two cases of difficult surgical, oper- ations with perfect success.

Idaho, writes: "I have cured a number of chronic eases of rheumatism, dyspepsia and paralysis of Ions; standing: I bare not had a single fail- ure; I consider a knowledge of Personal Mag- netism invaluable. The book has greatly la- creased my own powers." Dr. W. P. Kennleutt 5» State street. Blng- hamton. X. T.. 'Writes: "I had long suffered from nervous prostration and dyspepsia. My case baffled all medical skill. I studied hyp- notism from the American College of Sciences, and tried it upon myself with surprising re- sults.
