The rest of the . diene.- was composed of silver Dt-mo , rats and about tifty Democratic gold Kitltinior e. When Mr. Wilson entered no whs giveu nr ovation by the kulies and Republicans, which lasted several minutes. As no one presided over the meeting. and no one in troduced Mr. Wilson when he arose to speak, he was given a lusty cheer. His speech consisted of an urgumetu in favor of the gold standard and a defense of Cleveland's administration, and lasted for two hours. He said nothing new in his rgument. Whenever he mentioned Mr. I try an s name there was loud cheering. IIis speech was not pleasing to the silver men. and his arguments for the gold 1 standard fell flat with them. He spoke in a very earnest manner and impressed his audience with the honesty of his convic tions. His greeting was nothing like^the i ovation given him h-re two years ago. when he opened his last campaign for Con gress. To-night Hon. Andrew A. Lipscomb, ex district attorney of Washington. D.

Wound Up at Detroit With Three Record-Breaking Meetings. The Greatest Thrones Ever Gather ed Together to Hear Politics Dis cussed in Detroit— Washington Boulevard Jammed for Several Blocks—All Traffic Stopped by the Crowd at the City Had—Mr. Bryan’s Last Day m Michigan was One of the Best—A Gold Bug Editor Who Has Been Sailing Under False Colors. Called Upon to Answer Some Questions, But He Failed to Respond—A Pointed and Timely Disposition of the Tariff Question—It Can Wait T.ll the Urgent Demand for Financial Reform is Satisfied. Detroit, Mich., October 17.—William ■ J. Bryan completed his tour of Michigan lo-night by addressing the larges; throngs of people ever gathered at pa ■ litical meetings in Detroit. From a plat form erected against the Washington boulevard side of the Hotel Cadillac, he ’ talked to a mass of people which filled the wide boulevard and extended far in to adjoining streets. At the Auditorium be spoke to an au dience which occupied every inch of tho space, while thousands stood etusidq waiting for a possible sight of the can didate. Lastly he appeared upon a stand erect ed at the Woodward avenue front of the City Hall, before a crowd which was so great that it stopped all street car and other traffic entirely. The candidate’s train was met at the Woddward avenue station, three nCles from the center of the city, by the re ception committee. The procession of ! carriages went down Woodward avenua and to the Ho:el Cadillac by a rear alley entrance, thus avoiding the crowds on Michigan avenue. A roar of enthusiastic applause went up from the crowd as Bryan appeared, and tremendous enthusiasm was kepi up the entire evening, j At the City Hall Square Mr. Bryan | said: 1 am giau lO receive me au^iun VI i :ho plain people, because the plain peo ple are satisfied with a public officer when he dees his duty and protects them in the enjoyment of equal rights with everyone else instead of trying to i make favorites of u few at the ex pense of the unany. They tell us in this campaign that all the big men are against us. Well, I have been looking the matter up, and 1 find according to the law a big man does not vote any i oftener than a small man. ! Mr. Bryan then made a five minute discussion of the silver question, giving las the fundamental principles that in jorder for each individual to have mere i monev there must be more in circulation and' claiming that the treasury reports , show a decrease. SOME QUESTIONS. An Editor Who Thought It Hotter to Give Interrogatories Than t<> Keceiv * Them. Owosso %T> pot, Mich., October 17.— After a night’s r st Wiu. J. Bryan awoke this morning refreshed and in good con dition to ooutinue his record-breaking trip through Michigan. He said he was i completely rested and In order to prove his statement started in with his apoech ■ making at eight o’clock at St. John’s. Hi* voice was in good condition and as he expressed it, he was ready to do another day’s work sueft as yesterday and throw in half a dozen more ad dresses for good measure. At Lansing last nigh:, before the car in which Mr. Bryan rode, got out of the city, six speeches had betn made by the runifnee. 'i’he newspaper correspond ents could not keep track of him in the great crowd and not until he had at least got in the special car as it pulled out of the station, was it known by them how many speeches he had made. Shortly after Mr. Bryan had returned from he platform and Jus:in R. Whiting was speaking, the speakers’ stand wont down with fifty people on it, falling about six feet. Yesterday, at Albion, the plat form from which the candidate was ad dressing the audience collapsed. For tunately no one was injured at either place, and the result was that this morn ing John W. Tomlinson wired the na : tional committee to urge the local com mittee to use more care in the building of the speakers’ stands. The first stop this morning was at St. Johns, where for twenty-five minutes he spoke to a large crowd of enthusiastic admirers. At Ovid a three minute talk was ma^de from the car platform, and the few peo ple gather cheered the nominee rep. ited Iy. \t Owosso Mr. nrvan spnsc »• audience from a stand a few blocks away from the station. He had received a copy of a paper published there in which cer tain questions were asked. He referred to this as follows: Ladles and Gentlemen—hen I was at Owosso Junction a moment ago I received bv special delivery a copy of the Owosso Press of October 14th. From the fact that it bore no stamp except the special dellv erv stamp I assume that it was sent b> S < liter himself. The paper contains some questions submitted to me. As this paper is not supporting me I think am jutified in asking some questions myself 1 am expected to answer questions and therefore^ " ill ask « of,the „„ in the audience. ° Wok-c Tie was here a moment ago Mr I?,.van Will >*ou let me know where hA,Bv0lce-He has gone where his clrcu "vTiwa'S' » known Wifi son..- on- point him out to me. x Voiee—He has gone away. Mr Vtrvn Well, if he is not here to h r‘th.‘‘answers to his questions I will * , i h ■ attends a meeting and then " 1 1 U' him I am informed that the ed trZJ ^Owosso Press is standing on t0r ° in the rear of the crowd and el? Now 1 will ask him a 1 DiTyoi'. endorse the financial plank pro sentod by the minority at tho Chicago con vention? Mr. Bryan paused but there was no an | swer. I repeat the question. You have asked i me questions. You ought to be willing to ! answer questions. Did you endorse the minority plank at Chicago? Again there was no answer. Well, my friends, I have spent so much ' time trying to find the editor of this pa per and to unmask a man who Is seeking to elect a Republican by pretending to i support the Indianapolis ticket that I find 1 have no time left to talk to you. I ask you to remember that the gold standard never fought an open light. Those who supported the minority plank at Chicago pretended to lie afraid that free coinage would prevent international bimetallism and when they got to Indianapolis they forgot all about bimetallism and declared for the gold standard. Then they nomin ated a ticket which they did not intend to vote for because they were not willing to bear the odium of voting for the Repub lican ticket. I prophesy that the editor of the Press does not intend to vote for Pal mer and Buckner. I prophesy that he in tends to vote for the Republican candidate and that he is receiving money from tho Republican committee to keep up a pre j tended 11^lit for the Indianapolis ticket. A lifteen minutes' stop was made at ' Durand, where Mr. Bryan spoke from a platform near the station. There was a pood sized crowd of listeners and consid erable enthusiasm. There were no new points in the candidate's address. Several boxes of cut flowers were presented *■> Mrs. llryan and three cheers were Riven ; for the next lady of the White House. SAGINAW. Mich.. October 17.—Flint turned out a crowd of several thousand en thusiastic shouters. Mr. and Mrs. Bryan were escorted to the Court House square, where a decorated platform had been erected. Judge Wm. Newton Introduced ' the candidate and his wife to the audi ' ence and rousing cheers went up in re sponse. The meeting was enthusiastic throughout the 2-'> minutes’ visit. Continued on Fourth 1’agc.

Mrs. Walter Castle Has Been a Klep tomaniac for Yoars—As a Girl at Her Home, She would Take Little Thing That Did Not Belong to Her. San Francisco, October 17.—There are in this city two ladies who have known Mrs. Walter Castle all her life. | They are Mrs. Charles D. Stearns and Miss Ida Morrison, her sister. Their ! home for many years was in Wikning I ton, N. C., and there it was that they were on terms of intimacy with Mrs. Castle, who was then Miss Ella Weill. They were aware that at that time Miss Weill had an unoontrolab’.e mania for taking what did not belong to her, and they have made sworn affidavits: stat ing this fact, to be sent to London, where Mrs. Castle and her wealthy husband ' are now under $150,000 bonds charged i with -hoplifting. “Ella Weill was a beautiful and charming young woman," said Miss ' Morrison. “Every one in Wilmington j knew of her unfortunate weakness, but | nevertheless She was a uni vers sal favor ite. She was the belle of the town. She i was prominent in social circles and at : times so pronounced was her msuia t that she would t3ke little things. Peo ! pie kn?w she could not help it. and we all hoped in time she would get over her failing. But she never did. There I was no reason why she should appro priate what did not belong to her, for 1 her people were wealthy and she had i everything she wanted. Everything i was done to cure her of her mania, and finally she was sent out here in the hope ! that a complete change might he bene i ficiai. That was twelve years ago. I have seen her but once since then. We all know it was a disease. Her family had an understanding with the mer chants of Wilmington and whatever she appropriated was always paid for. --o— rnt COLORED MEN IN LINE.
