Thousands of People Gathered to See and Hear Him. . , Washington, Oct 23. The Hon Wil liam J. Bryan spent an hour and a quarter at the National eapital to-day. His train arrived over the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad from West Virginia, at- 7:55 o'clock this morning. About 1,000 people were awaiting him at tne depot. As the train pulled in, ex-Judge WllUam M. Springer, former chairman of the house committee on- ways and means, and an. old'colleague and warm friend of the. democratic candidate, stepped to Mr- Bryan's pf ivate ear -at the rear , of the train - and' 'welcomed, him. The- two then' passed through the crowd to- the entrance.-. Here au automobile was in waiting, and they were taken to the residence of Judge Springer, opposite the capitol, where Mr Bryan had breakfast; Colonel" Is aac Hill, democratic. t Whip" of the house of representatives, was the only other guest. A few minutes before U o'clock Mr Bryan was driven to uie Baltimore-and Ohio depot, where he made a brief speech from his automo bile. 'He spoke on imperialism -and civil service. About 5,000 -people were massed at. the depot.-. -i Mr Bryan said: ' ., Occasionally I hear it suggested that persons engaged in the civil ser vice who are opposed to imperialism will vote the republican ticket for fear of losing their positions with the gov ernment. I am not much of an admirer of that civil service which is suspend ed when a president is ' Inaugurated until he can fill the offices with his flends and is extended by the presi dent when he is about to retire, in or der that he may .-protect his friends in office. The Industrial despotism -now inaugurated by the republican party is closlug the door of opportunity against the young man and driving many to seek government employment . who un der better conditions would be em ployed in producing Industries.? Mr Bryan closed with the statement that ft was not his highest ambition to be president, '.'but to make this gov ernment so good that to be a private citizen In this republic will be a great er honor than to be a king in any other nation." A delegation- from the Maryland state central committee met Mr Bry an here and at a few minutes after he left for Hockviile,' where he made the first of a series of speeches in a tour of Maryland towns. ; Before Teaching Washington the train on which Mr Bryan came in made a brief stop at Alexandria, "Va, The statement had been made In ad vance that Mr -.Bryan 'would , make a brief speech In that town and a large number of people had congregated at the railroad yards to greet turn, -l hey received him'- wJth vociferous- cheers. but 'Mr Bryatr liad 'only -.time i to say that he felt complimented to .nave so tuauv people come' out to greet 'him so early in the moruing.

Mr Hurley had no dtf- M ei.wv4iu: au ao auoui woi v ana the only thing known about the matter is that he . called upon Mr Horlgan, clerk iu the olilce of superlntendeut of the "street department, this ' mornlug, and asked to have his name taken off the' payroll. It is believed .that John knew what was coming and thought that he might just as well go' now as later, for it seemed to be pretty gen erally believed that the city would not ! continue him in ollice- at a.' salary of $3.20 a day and allow 'hlm to devote too much of his time, 5f any at all. to the work of boosting republicans into power. It was reported a short time ago that Hurley Was playing a double Saint and the Democrat, thinking that lie was be lug maligned,' gave him a chance to speak to the ' public. aud ho took .advantage of It. stating that he Uckut. but the paper wf.s not off -the press , when he Was around - denying that he ever said any silt-h thing. Well, what matter about that, but that' In terview was all right.- and it was toot cscd without Mr Hurley's voiisent.' and if he will jog his memory he will re member, that there were more present thau' himself and the reporter when the interview took . place- But after ail. Mr Hurley has not exceeded his right in getting through, and, iu fact. he has not done anything . but what those who know hiui best knew he would do some . time before election, It would be -ci'Bfil -tpj-ftak John I to oppose narry tjuraut. xue mutrs tastes are too much alike; they have spent too much time together-, Aud know too much about each other to be brought face to face in a political con test. It Is probable that Mr . Hurley s offer from the Traction company, 'J'.at Is to work for them at X'Jt a day, wet and dry, still holds good,, and if this be true he need not care a picayune about the democratic .party. .-'Tlie trol ley company is sum -o nave positions for all tile-fellows iu the several wards who .are supposed to have a pull aud of course they made no mistake when they wanted Mr Hurley to work for them.". He was well liked' on the sew er department, and those -who would like .to befriend ului'.terieve thai it would have paid him btftter to hold than give it up to start out to chase shadows, for big corporations, like sharp politicians, arc. poor, props to lean upOu. The; democratic party usod Mr Hurley handsomely awl. "i those who .thought it a mistake to give him the position- ' he,.,, resigned -' to-day . while there- were more : deserving ; parties looking for it, will laugh -in their sleeves to-ulght at how John -appre ciated-the kindness shown ,hjin by the party.

The' officer ' reported the facts to Sergeant Faean' and then a search was commenced for the proprietors, who were finally lo- -cated on Hawkins street, where they removed trom Mne street quite re cently. When Mr Iluber called at tlia nlace and saw what had happened he was wna with rage at the idea of seeinff the door broken, but when he misRed a few hundred dollars' worth of his ' goods then his indignation knew no . hounds, and no wonder, for the man Is said to be a hard worker and was just - Dunning up a little business there. After going over the stock he missed various articles, among them beinc the following: One " dozen solid -silver bracelets, valued at SlT'eachV three - dozen ladies' chains, ranging in price - rrom IH.oO to ?8. apiece; one inandolUV market price $12; watch and, chain. price $C.7n; watch, price $4.95. ' some of the articles vere taken out - of the window f rontjng on South Mala " street, right in the glare of the electric lights, where the thieves could have been seen from the streetwithout any :.- trouble; The others were picked up at random from the show case. It is believed .that whoever w.as on the Iri side had some 'one on the iookbu'f for the police, who gave the alarm when he saw Officer Sullivan-coming along. and tbe fellow on the" inside then made.' good his escape before the officer reached the door. It could not Have : occurred In any other way, for It is cer-1' " tsin--that there was no one In the place". when the officers entered.' It was a daring deed, and while the police- are after the burglars it iVoubtful if they will succeed in catching them.
