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. Boonton, Paterson,
' Belleville and Newar&. ; ;

Chicago. Oct 20. Through m un
conscious betrayal by his- brother, Al
bert T. Dow, proprietor of the alleged
illicit oleomargarine factory which re
cently was raided by United States in
ternal revenue officers,, was -arrested
and placed under-bonds to appear be
fore Commissioner "Mark F6ite. A
warrant was Issued--for a. a. uow.
but it was discovered that he was in
Boston. Before the police m tliat city
could be notified, Dow had left for
Chicago. On arrival In this city,
made an appointment with his Drotuei
Nathan. The latter -had been snau-
owed by officers ever since tne raid
and when the brothers met the arrest
occurred. '
Collector of Internal Revenue coyne
has seemed a writ of attachment on
thp fnnria of the oleomargarine com
pany, said to be on deposit In three
banks. The internal revenue taxes on
the oleomargarine alleged to nave oeeu

525,000.
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, .
Chicago, Oct 20 Edward Corrieran.
fresh from his first season of racing in
England, has cr rived ' in the city. He
said:
"My present plans are v to remain
here for four . or five . days . and then
visit Kansas City, where my relatives
are. From Kansas City I go to Cal
ifornia. "At my ranch In Sacramento fhave
twenty-six or twenty-seven, youngsters'
wnicn nave yet to .be broken, and
from these I expect to take back to
England six or eight of the best. I
am anxious to get back to England
in February, and by the first of Jan
uary 1 should be able to tell what are
the best animals to take across for my
second campaign.
"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. The advent of the
American jockeys and -trainers on the
English turf isslowly forcing the Brit
ishers to change "their methods."

Falls
Village Visitod By
. Disastrous Fire.
The Loss Will Reach Nearly Fifty.
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.

ing has yet been1- definitely decided

MOODUS MILLS TO RESUME.
East Hampton, Oct 2G. The cotton,
twine . and duck mills of Moodus,
which have been shut down the past
three or four weeks on account of
lack of water, will start up next week
as there is now sufficient water in the
reservoir to run the mills two weelis
or more. The situation lias forced up
on the minds of the mill owners the
necessity of fitting up their plants for
steam. It is roughly estimated that
the loss in business to the several mills
during - the enforced Idleness will
amount to at least $1,500 or $2,000,
while the wages not forthcoming to
operators aggregates quite . a sum.

the result had nineof their men sent

The Scots were ' practically at the

race hatred, culminating in trouble re
cently over tlie . employment of Eng
lishmen in the rmillfi. wTiere there are
some 4,00!) emplpyes paid by English
capital. Although the present trouble
is on account of a refusal on the part
of the mill management to recognize

for more pay for. the men working1 on
the construction of a new mill, the
difficulty has all the appearance of
assuming the old phase of raejal an

red coats from . Montrt-al. A detach
ment of the Duke of orka Royal
Canadian Hussar (cavalry) is under
orders to proceed to Valleyfield to

night. He was shot in the arm ana m
not seriously injured.
Four hundred more operatives joined
the strikers this morning. The town
is now under martial law.
