Willinni Jonnings Bryan and Arthur

nosday ovening, Auguat 12, of their
uomination by tho dotnocratic party
for tlie olliccs of president and vicc
prcsident, at a tneetiug in tho big
Madiaon Squaro Garden, New York.
It waa a uotablo political cvent, and a
remarkablo climax to tho remarkablo
tour of tlio preaidontial candidato acroes
half tho contincnt, An army of un
numbcrcd thousands fllled tho stroeta
for aoveral squares about tho building,
in a vain hopo of Becuring admission,
Mr. Bryan's address dealt almost eu
tircly with the flnancial question, lt
waa rnorc argumcntativo and less
elcquout than his bistorical Chicago
speech, which wo.n for him a presidon
tial nomination, and only in a closing
appcal to tho cilizena of Now York did
ho 8peak in the strain which had cap
tured tho Chicago convention, Ho was
surrounded by many of tho silver
leaders, sotno of whotn had been rival
aepiranla for his placc on the tickot.
The dcmocratic leadera of New York,
with the oxcoption of tho former state
treasurer, Elliot Danforth, who presided
over tho nieeting, and Congreastnan
Williani Sulzer, who organized the firat
Bryan club in tho atate, woro absent.
Mr, Danforth told the people that ho
knew thuy did not want a speech. and
ho waa not going to disappoint them.
Ho preaented Governor William A.
Stono of Missouri, chairman of tho
committeo of notiflcation.
Governor Stoue eaid that the acts of
the Chicago convention were thoBo of
the truo doraocratic party. Tho oxi3t
ing national adrniniatration waa created
bv the deraocrata in 1892, ho aaid,
almoat wholly on tho tariff iaauo, al
though thero wero thouaanda of dcmo
crats who then bolieved that a rofortn
in our monctary syatom was of far
greator importanco than a rofortu in
our rcvenue polieies. Democrats hod
expcclcd that Mr. Clevoland would
bring the tariff to a specdy aettloment,
but in that, aaid tho apoaker, thoy wero
doomed to diaappointtnent, tho presi
dent thruatiug it aeide, and beginning
" to oxerciao the great powers of his
ofilce to commit tho country to a flnan
cial ayatem inauguratcd by tho rcpubli
can party, and which tho democratic
party had tirao and agaln condomned
in both atato and national convontiona."
Thero wero hisaea when ho spoke of
the BritiBh gold atandard in forco in
Amorlca, and moro hiascB when ho

Mr. Bryan then Btepped to tho front
and centor of the platforni. In hia
hand ho hold a raauuscript copy of hia
spoech. His fnco waa palo, but ho waa
cool and calra. Ho lookod vory inuch aa

compoacd largely of moro oaaorllon aud

roputation for oratory hia epocch in tho
Chicago convention had crcatcd, and
his discuBaiona of national affaira served
only to convinco thinking pcoplo who
hcard, or who rcad his spoccli in tho
nowspanors that tho candidato was far
bolow tho ataturo of statesmon. Only
in hia peroration was sccu nuything
that haa givon hlm oratorical fame, and
tho offect of thla pasaago of his spccch
was dulled by tho strain and impair
mcnt much spcnkinc had put upon hia
vocal organa. Mr. Bryan cloaed as fol
lows: " Oithtns of New York:l have trnv
olcd from tho contor of tho continont
(o tho scaboard that I might, in tho
very beginning of tho campalgn, bring
you greeting from tho peoplo of tho
West and South, and aaauro you that
thoir deairo is not to dcstroy, but to
build up. Thoy invito you to accopt
tho principlea of a living faith rathor
than llston to thoso who preach tho
gospol of despair, and adviso endur
anco of tho ills you havo. Tho advo
catoa of froo coinago boliove that in
atriving to aocuro tho immcdiato rea
toration of bimotalllism thoy aro labor
ing in your bohalf, aa woll aa in their
own bohalf. A fcw of your peoplo
may proaper undor prcacnt couditions,
but tho permauent welfaro of Now
York reata upon tho producera of
wcalth. Thia great city i8 buill upon
the commorco of tho nation, and muat
Buffer if that commorco is impaircd.
You cannot soll uuless tho peoplo havo
monoy with which to buy, and they
cannot obtain tho monoy with which to
buy unlcss they aro ablo to sell their
producta at remunorative prlccs. Pro
duction of wealth goos boforo tho ex
change of wcalth; thoso who creato muat
aocuro a proflt beforo they havo any
thing to sharo with othors. You can
not afford to join tho moncy chiiugers
in aupporting a financial policy which,
by deatroying the purchasing powcr of
tho producta of toil, muBt iu tho ond die
courage tho creation of wcalth.
" I ask, I expect your co-operation. It
iB truo that a few of your financiera
would fashion a new fieuro a llg
ure reprecnliug Columbia, her handa
bound fast withlfctters of gold aud her
face turned toward tho east, appealing
for aBaistance to thoae who livo bcyonu

will rather turn for inapiratiou to tho
heroic atatue which guards the t'ntrauco
to your city a statuo aa patriotic in
conccption aa it ia coIobsdI in propor
tiona; it waa the gracioua gitt of a
Biatcr rejiublic and atands upon a
pedeBtal which was buill by the Ameri
cau pcoplc. That uVnrc liberty en
lightening the woild is cmblematic of
tho miaaion of our nation among the
nations of the carth. With a govern

consent of the goverued, securca to all

United Statea Bhoulil be an examplo in
all that iagood, and the Ieading apiiit
in every movemeut which haa for its ob
ject tho uplifting of tho human race."
"Not a succeaa" is tho popular
vordict upon the speech that tho orator
had prepared with so great care and
had traveled eo far to deliver. Crowda
doparted beforo tho apeech waB cndcd.
Mr. Bryan iB ovidently moro at homo
in tho rough and tumble, thc cut aud
thrust, ofwestern political campaign
ing, than in tho eober and arduoua work
of carnest, ratioual, atateamanlike po
litical ditcussion. Hia apeech in New
York will offer ondlesa opportunity for
effectivo attack' and theso opportuni
ties will be improved.
Mr. Sowall'a speech of acceptanco
waa very briof. Ho said that tho Chi
cago convention waa tho greatest and
most oarneat convention in tho hietory
of the party. It waa closer and moro
in touch with tho pcoplc. The dole
cgates wero thero to voico tho aouti

of tho party, for tho peoplo of the
party controllod aud couductcd that
convention. Mr. Sowall declared that
uuequivocally and through aincoro con
gratulation ho cndoraed tho platform
on whicli ho had been nominated. " I
bclievo wo are right ; tho peoplo aro

Aftor tho notiflcation meeting, Mr.
Bryan was drlven to tho Hotol Bar

X Solillcr of Napolcon,
Most of ua uowadaya, whon thinking
of tho Napoloonlc wars, conslder tbcni
m part of tho rcmoto paat, aud lt ia dif
flcult to rcolizo that thoro may bo pco
plo still living who took part in tho bat
tlcs of Marongo, Jonu aud Watorloo.
But all of Napolcon's soldicrs aro not
yot dead, nnd ono mau who fought uu
dcr tho great Frcnch gcnoral is aaid to
bo living now near Clovolnud, O., savs
a wrlter iu Uarper'a Uound Tubh.
Whothor that la truo or not, it ia n fact
that only rocontly ouo ol Napolcon's
old warriorsdicdattho Soktlers' Homo,
Kearnoy, N. J.
His namo was Honry Muoller, and ho
waB born ln Germany in 1701, nnd
when tho Fronch artnioa invaded Prua
sia Muollor was flftoen years old. With
mauy of hia computriotB ho waa drnftcd
luto tho grand army, and marched off
toRuBsia to Ught thu'Cossacka nnd tho
cold. Ho waB at Moscow, aud trampcd
all tho way back in tho disaatroua ro
troat, auifering untold torturoa, nnd
Bcoing his fcllow-aoldiors falling ln tho
snow nlmost nt ovory slep. But Muol
lor kopt up, and lived to get back into
Germany, and to flght at tho battles of
Bautzen, Leipsic and llnally in tho
great battlo at Wnterloo.
Aftor Napolcon had been captured
by tho British and scut to tho lonoly
island at St. Helcna, and tho great
armica of Europo had bocn diBbauded,
Muoller took ship and camo to the
United Statea. Not long aftor hia ar
rival in this country tho Seminole and
Moxicnu wnrs broko out, and tho old
spirit of tho soldior wns renwnkoned in
Mucllor, and ho went again tothe front,
thia timo wearlng tho Amorican uni
form and flghting for tho Amorican
flag. So much warfaro had now mado
a conflrmed soldior of tho Gorman, and
bo whon tho AVar of tho Rebellion broko
out in 16G1 ho again took out his mua
kot aud fought through tho entire war.
Ono of the most wondorful thinga of
all theso exporionces is that Muellor
waa ncvor seriouBly woundcd,aud man
agod to keep himaelf in such good
health that bo lived to be ovor 100
year a old, aud apcnt hia laet days in
peaco and comfort in tho Soldiors'

McClollnn nnd Lincoln.
At a gathoring of old soldiors in
Washington Gcnoral Sicklea told tho
followiug atory :
"It waa, 1 should think, very early
in tho winter of 18G1-G2 that, haviug
somo businesa with General McClellan,
I walked up ono foronoon to his head
quartcre, in Admiral Scmmos' houae,
oppoailo the Arlington. Thc man on
duty said he waa engaged and asked mo
to wail. I took a seat, and ahortly tho
secretary of war camo in and aaked to
see the general. An ofllcer camo out
of tho next room, eaid the general was
busy just then, and asked tho secretary
of war to tako a seat and wait. Mr.
Ctmeron sat down and we fell into con
versalion. In a fow minutes Mr. Lin
coln camo in and iuquired for General
McClellan. Tho ofllcer repeatcd what
ho hud said to ua, and that tho general
was very busy, and Mr. Lincoln would
havo to wait. Tho president sat down
with ua and siid, All right, 111 wait."
"Tho Becrotary of war romarked
that the president ought in somo way
to havo access to ono of his gonnrals.
Lincoln throw ouo leg over tho other,
aa if prepared for a long eicuc, aud
said : ' Oh, no. It's all right. My timo
ia of no special value, and the general
is attonding to our buaineas. I cau
wait as woll as not.' Aud he fell into
bi3 fomouB story-telling, showing not
the dhihtoBt impatieucont thenecesaity
of cooling hia heels in tho auto-room
of a mau who was a civilian less than a
year beforo, aud whom ho himsolf had
appointed to ofllcc.
"Tho incidout illustrated," ndded
General Sicklea, "two thlug8 flrst,
that Mr. Lincoln waa ouo of tho moat
unprotentioua of meu, and secoud, that
at that timo cverybody, includlng Mc
Clellan himsolf, expectcd McClellan to
