At the McClellan school there was
a joint debate upon the tax question

so completely overwhelmed
the Democrats that they fell back on
slinging mud at Candidate Dawson.
Mr. Conaway dealt out such a vast
amount of curbstone adjectives in referring
to Mr. Dawson that even his
own party followers were disgusted.
. Many Dawson votes in McClellan
can be credited to Mr. Conaway's ill
advised speech. When a speaker has

BOSTON. Mass., Oct. 27.?'Thomas

that John D. Rockefeller, "seeing the

the statement put forth that its denials

Standard Oil 'had a meeting. There
possibly never was one held before
to which the other Standard Oil men
went without such uncertain dread. I
keep closely in touch with twenty-six

"The word was- passed before Tuesday's
meeting, 'John D. is furious and
something is going to drop.' A few
of the active men were so scared
_ they slipped into the market and out
of their stocks. John D. Rockefeller
did all the talking that broke forty
years' silence. Boiled down, it would

William Jennings Bryan has sprun
iew gag on the gold Democrats. H
s been claiming all along; thr. ' hi
rt of the Democracy is the res
- thing and he quotes scripture t
prove it. He is planning to reorgar
ize the party anil if he can prove hire
: self entitled to confidence the "sat
and sane" division -will be ioiite<
horse, foot and dragoon. They wen
willing to let the party, die.
i~ At KendalJvllle. Indiana, on. Tues
day Mr. Bryan said:
" "For the benefit of our silver Dem
dcrats let me refer to a Bible inci
dent. I quote Scripture beeauso
have never found any other boolc thai
contains as much truth as the Bible
nor have I found any other book Ir
.which truth, is so well expressed,

J let the child live.' ~
"She knew that if she suffered it to
be put to death she novel could see
j it again in this world, Shut that" if it
lived, even, in the possession of another,
she might still hope to press it
to her bosom again.
"Eight years ago there was a con'
test in our party and some who claimed
to have Democratic principles better
than we have were willing to have
the party divided and a Republican
President elected. Now it is our time
to be tested. I hope I spealc for all
who voted for me when I say that we
would rather surrender the organization
for this campaign than to permit
the enemy to win a victory
through our division.. We are not
willing that the party should die."

During the morning he received presents
from each oi the cnihV.cn and
Mrs. Roosevelt, and messages of congratulation
by mail ana wire came
from all parts of the world. Many
of the President's friends dropped
into the office to shake hands with him
and wish him many happy returns of
the day and the White House gardener
celebrated the occasion by furnishing
an unusually large bouquet for
the Chief Magistrate's desk. The
mere fact that he had acquired another
birthday made no change in the
President's regular business program.
He was at his office shortly after 9
A. M. and went over the usual quantity
of correspondence with Secretary
Loeb. After that he received
business and political callers until
lunch time.

manner of entertaining will be one of
the features of this engagement, as

number' of smaller parties are being ,

done, beside the sending of a belated
message of regret by the Uzar, the
master of the fleet which perpetrated
the outside. He adds:
"Regret is ngtbing, a mere conventional
formula. What the people vant
here is satisfaction, prompt and full,
not money like an alms flung to a
beggar.
They say 'damn your compensation;
we want satisfaction" and the satisfaction
they want Is what every man
with a drop of blood in his veins
would want. It Is to see the cowardly
assailants brought to bond.
"The news they long to hear is that
some one has bidden the Russian fleet
halt and has summoned its com-^
mander sternly to answer for his
act. Nothing less will suffice and if
the owner of the fleet does not do his
duty they expect us to do it for him."
The entire British people share in
this desire and expectation and there ,
seems to be no doubt whatever tliat "
the British government is resolutely (
determined that, the Baltic fleet shall
not go east unless Russia folly j
atones for its insult.

Apprehension Is Growing. s
I LONDON,. Oct. 27.?For the first ,
time since tho British note was sent ?
to Russia, government circles consider
the Anglo-Russian situation se- j
rious. The apprehension is growing hourly,
owing to the failure of Russia
to do as has been demanded. Die =
principal anxiety regarding immediate 1
danger is due to a possible attempt I 1
on the part of the British fleet to
stop the Russian Baltic fleet for eic- 1
planation. It is considered probable f
that Admiral Rodjesvensky -would not
recognize the authority of the English
vessels, and -would resist, thus predpitating
a clash. t
It is believed France will he asked d
o offer her service as mediator and t:
hat she will accent if England inti- h
nates a desire for such an act. The
esult of such mediation, however, b
ire doubtful -while England demands h
nore than official apology and full .
