GREAT RECEPTION AT H0B0KEN The Presidential- Candidate Contrast ed His Reception To-day and Four Tears Ago The Large Standing Ar , my Question Was Thoroughly Dis cussed. ' Hoboken, X. J.. Oct 20. The second day of Mr Bryan's campaign" tour of New Jersey began in this city to-day with a meeting in the Lyric theater, at which the presidential candidate ad dressed all the people who could crowd into the building. The speech was announced for 8:30 o'clock, but it was almost half an hour later before Mr Bryan arrived. When he stepped upon the platform he appeared some what fatigued, but as his speech pro gressed he soon regained his wonted " vivacity. He said he believed that when democratic principles as now presented were understood they would be received as favorably in the east as in the west. He then contrasted hre reception in New Jersey at this time with the re ception of 1S9G, and on this connection he said: "I am glad to have an opportunity to defend our cause here, for I feel confident that the policies for which the democratic party stands will ap peal to the American, people when those principals are fully understood, end it has been gratifying to note the change that has taken place in the last four years. It is gratifying-to lind a much more cordial reception to our platform now than we found when four years ago I had occasion to visit these parts. I said then, in leaving for New York, that I was going into the jpnemy's country. This, year, those who left us in 189C have largely re turned and they have brought with them a large contingency from the re publican party. I did . not complain when men left us in 1S90, for I have always contended that a man's vote was his own and that he had a right to do with it as he pleased; and I nev er doubted but that the great mass of those who left us in 1890 left us be cause they honestly thought that my election would be harmful to the country. ' I cannot despise the ; men who places his country above his par ty, even though I may be the loser by his act. But the principle ,which run through ' republican policies has be come apparent on . these later ques- in 1800 that the republican party was ' giving to much consideration to wealth and too little "to human rights; but since .1890 the republican party has shown its disregard of human rights In ways that we did not dream of then." - Proceeding, the speaker arraigned the republican party's position upon the various issues before the country. II . "1 .1 .1 . . tkln.1.. trial despots," and declared that the republican party was fostering them. He did' not believe there could be a eood monopolyin private hands until God sends angels to take charge of .them; "and," he added, Vfrom our ex perience we are Inclined to think that the angels now in charge came not from above, but from below." "Someone has said," Mr Bryan eon ' tinued, ."that he did not object to the .bedbug so much, but that, he did ob ject to the way he made a living. So . we object to the trusts." - The "com parison caused a roar or laughter and applause. Mr Bryan took strong ground on the question of a large army. He said, that this country was less liable to dissension than any other, on ac count of the character of the popula tion. - Instead of finding a menace in the preseflfe of foreign-born citizens in the United States. Mr Bryan said that these -were really a safe-guard, be cause, knowing the evils of monarcb lal systems, they knew how to avoid them and appreciated why they should ?do so.' He predicted that if the -Jb crease of the army to 100.000 was en dorsed by voting the republican ticket, next November, ther would continue jo lie increases until the armed . force would be sufficient to completely awe . tha nermle. .--' -- " V ' , Taking up the question of the Phil nn;nes Sir Brvan gave what he said was a. republican speech in support of the. republican policy. This presenta tion was as follows: ". Y?e are very sorry we - got the Pliilinnlne Islands'; we did not intend to get them, but they were thrown into our lap ana it is "ui- uuy w them. God commands It, and It will r.n-r ' " ' ' Mr Bryan then related the Biblical ctTO nf Naboth's vineyard and said: t wish that-on the Sunday before election every preacher in the United States would take as his text that r Naboth's vineyard, and 1 will 1 tell you how they would treat it. Every opponent of "imperialism would Con t Ahiih for wanting the vineyard snu every jmpciuuiow f - , condemn Naboth for not letting Ahab ' lave-it;'V : '- - '-" , At the conclusion of his speech Mr Bryart was then driven to the Lacka- wanna Tallroad statin, where he en kered his special car and started at n an n his day's tour. His fist stop was Harrison, where Mr Bryan spoke o a eooa-slzea crowa ror uoul ui- teen minutes. The candidate was ' scheduled to make speeches a Orange, Morristowi. Dover.

NO TRANSFER MADE YET But the Transaction Will Eventually Be Carried Through. Portland, Ore, Oct 20. The Oregon- Ian to-day says: Negotiations for tlie transfer of the" Southern Pacific lines in Oregon to the Northern Pacific Rail way Co has been on for some time. They were interrupted b"y the death of President C P. Huntington of the Southern Pacific and affairs are now in such eond'.tiou that no iriiuiediati le sults are looked for. As one well in formed man put it, the present situa tion of the. Southern Pacific is such that no transfer of the Oregon lines could be made, no matter how much th company might want to sell or how much other companies might want to break in. It is thought by some that the deal has practically been abandoned as impossible of tousumma-. tion under present circumstances. There is reason to believe, however, that the transaction.will eventually be carried through. The Northern Pacific's des'ra to se cure the Oregon" lines of the Southern Pacific is believed. to be based in the fact that it has great faith In the Pa cific northwest and wishes to get as much of the business as possible. . J. lie Southern Pacific lines in Oregon comprise about 050 miles or railroad. AMERICAN JOCKEY ARRIVES. Says Racing on the Other Side is Cbn- . ducted in High Class Manner, .

"I am well satisfield with my first venture, finding the racing on the other side carried oh in a high class manner and the people connected with it the best. "I found the people sportsmanlike, and think the cry raised against American jockeys has been exaggerat ed. As far as I have observed, the sportsmen over In England want only what' is right.

Thousand Dollars ' Methodist Church Also Burned A Number of Families Removed Their Belongings to Places of Safety. ' Falls Village, Conn. Oct 20. One jt the most disastrous tire that ever vis ited "this section broke out tl;is morn ing in the grocery, store of O. V. Hall and before help could arrive the town hali, the Methodist church and the Fulls Village Savings bank 'were all in Came. It is estimated that the total loss- will amount to about -10,000. - : The town hall is a four-story build ing, on the ground iloor of which is the grocery store of O.. W. Hall,, and the dry goods store1 of Tlornbeck Bros. How the. tire started Is not known as yet. but a, passerby about 3 o'clock saw smoke in the jtrocery store and aroused several people in the inmiedi ate vicinity. The men. however, were unable to cope with the flames, and as there is no fire department in Falls Village they were obliged to tele phone to Lyme Rock for assistance. Long before help could arrive from the latter town, however, the flames had spread into Hornbock's store: and , from there all over the entire build- j flames could not' be .confined to the town hall, and in less than half an hour the Dames had spread to the Methodist church, and from there to the bank and postofilce. When help arrived a bucket brigade was formed, and men passed water from the river along the line to the fire. Water was also carried in wagoes. There was rather a. high wind blowing at the time, and the efforts of the volunteer Bremen seemed to be of little avail, as they could not get near enough to the flames. " '" There was great excitement, .and si number of families in the vicinity of the fire removed all moveable furni ture from their houses. Everything possible was done to prevent the flames reaching the post otfice and the savings bank, but de spite their efforts the firemen were unable to check the flames. The bank oflicials removed most of the furniture from the bank, ana all boots ana pa pers were put in ther fire proof safe. The total losses are estimated as fol lows: Citizens hall, loss $12,000; insurance $9,000; damage to stock, $12,000, insur ance $9,000; Methodist church loss $0,-. 000, fully covered by insurance; post office, loss" $100, no' insurance;- Falls Village Savings bank, loss $0,0OO; in surance $4,000.
