Bryan, the democratic - candidate, in winding up his tour of the east to-day made public the fol lowing: ." ' ' "Appeal to the Public.' . "As the campaign draws to a close; certain Issues stand out clearly. The " democratic party attempts to inau gurate an era of honesty in politics by compelling the publication of cam paign contributions before the elec tion. It seeks to bring the govern ment nearer to the people by secur ing the election of United States sen ators by direct vote. It seeks to re store competition through legisla tion which will make a private mo-" nopoly impossible. It seeks to recon cile labor and capital by legislation which will bring employe ana em ploye together In friendly co-operation and to this end It proposes the creation of a department of labor with a secretary of labor la the cabi net; an amendment to the anti-trust law which will exclude the labor or- ' ganlzatlon from the operation of that law; the limitation of the writ of in junction so that it will not be Issued in a labor dispute unless conditions are such as would justify an injunc- tlon even If there were no labor dis pute, and trial by jury in cases of - indirect contempt. It seeks to ise ' cure legislation which will create a - guarantee fund sufficient to secure all depositors against,' losses. It j . seeks to secure a reduction of the tar- iff by gradual steps until, the tariff , laws' will no longer be made In the ' interest' of; the" Tew; and ; at' the"ei , pense of the rest of the people. ; 'The ; democratic party, in other words, seeks to secure honesty In gov ernment through honest policies and ; popular government through direct ) elections. It desires to secure peace in industry, competition in trade, se ' curity to depositors, and justice to taxpayers. .'. ....... . . ,. - "The democratic party appeals to I the awakened conscience of the na tion and the sense of justice in the , human heart and to the growing de sire for brotherhood. ' v "With a democratic victory for the national ticket, with a democratic congress and with the moral force of a popular verdict I believe we can compel the senate to yield to the ex pressed will of the people and permit the passage of the more urgent of the reforms. -.' , : , yv "The democratic party offers the only prospect of remedial legislation, and while it does not go as far as some reformers, would like to go; a democratic victory will secure at much of reform-as is now. attainable in fact the only reform that is Within reach: ." We have a right to expect, therefore, the co-operation of those who favor the reforms-set forth In our platform'. "The attempt to terrorise the American voter by the threat of a panic will not succeed. We have had three panics in .48 years, the panic of 1871, the panic of 1893 and the panic of 1908 and two of these panics came under a high tariff and each of them came under , republican presidents. Vf . Tb fi rmi. 41a. a nnnfn will mnma j.i 4 Ami. t;fl iuab a, pauivt mi. wuio if I am elected. Let htm give bond that this panic will go if he is elect ed. ;-' When he says that a democratic victory will bring a panio he ex presses an oninion. When . I sav that a disastrous panic came last fall without waiting for a democratic vic tory I state a fact that cannot be dis puted. Our platform presents a plan or the restoration of prosperity upon a' permanent basia ra prosperity In which all will share. The republican party has no plan that contemplates either the present relief or continued welfare of the people. "The republican candidate has the prestige that comes. from the fact - that Ms nartv la In noser. Ha hna the aid of an army, of office holders; he has the support of all the mono ' polies and law defying trusts; he has a large campaign fund, the source of which his committee refuses to dis .' close, and most of the leading news I papers are allied wtlh him and the . interests which he represents. I in sist that it Is not fair for the presi ' dent to use his office an office that belongs to all the people as If It were a party asset or a personal asset and enter actively into the campaign. It offends the sense of justice and ought to arouse a protest from those who believe thet In the selection of the chief executive the people should I be absolutely free to choose whom " tier please.

Sunday will be given .over, .-to: the ? completion of arrangements for , getting . out the voters wbjle. on Monday a score of more rallies have - been planned. The republican party managers do not dare to take a rest before elec tion owing to the stubbornness of the fight waged by other Interests against Mr LHley, the nominee for governor, and the democrats declare that they wll keep fighting so long as there are signs of aggressiveness among their opponents. The windup of the electioneering brings' out a sensational charge by Chairman Michael Kenealy of tho re publican .state .committee at Hart ford that bogus ballots are being dis tributed by the anti-Lllley republi cans. The anti-Lllley republicans claim that only a single error, that in case of the Putnam ballots, has been detected. It Is further claimed that the warnings of the republicans came earlier than anticipated. During the forenoon the anti-Lllley faction announced that a reply would be made during the day to Chairman Kenealy's warning. Nurse Sentenced. Washington Oct 51.

Throughout one court day and, part of another be had been on the witness stand in his own be half in his trial with A. H. Curtis on charges of violating the national banking laws. ' ' While his defensive story was be ing carried forward under the skill ed guidance of friendly counsel the witness gave his answers In low even voice and in hsl whole bearing there was nothing to indicate the force and aggressiveness which were said to have carried him to a commannlng place in the world of finance. With the coming of the cross examiner, United States District Attorney Stim- son, however, there - was an almost instant change In the demeanor of the' witness. Then it was the real Morse In theV witness chair Morse the fighter, not only willing but ap parently anxious to fight inch by inch for everything he believed to be his due. His voice rose with his mcod and his answers which before bad been almost inaudible rang through the court room. At times he would spur as adroitly as the cross examiner himself and when this method did not avail would flatly refuse to answer questions except in an explanatory way. The battle of wits was resumed when the trial, was resumed to-day. WIND FELLED POLES Manchester Power and 7raln Service .' Were Hardly Crippled.

BAHKDEP ON TUE GRIDIRON Several Big Games looked For oo ibe Grldfroo Tbls , i AfteroooD. Annapolis, Md, Oct . 31. To-day, the date of the Carlisle Indlans-Mld-shlpmen football game, dawned Ideal ly for the sport. Interest among navy people generally is at a high pitch. Both the Indians and the midshipmen played among the big four last aSt urday and held their respective op ponents to the same score. The In dians tied Pennsylvania and Midship, men tied Harvard. In both gamest he figures were the same, 6-6. Addi tional interest 1b caused by the fact that this is the first time tbe speedy redskins have played tbe midshipmen for six years. Then tbe sailors won but there was some disagreement over the contest and athletic rela tions were discontinued. Both teams are confident. Interest in the game which will be called at 2:30 is also great in Balti more, Washington and other nearby cities and tbe chances are that there will be as large if not greater crowds about the navy field than witnessed the battle with Harvard last Satur day. The teams will face each other as follows: Carlisle. Position. , Navy. Little Old Man Robertson Left end. Waseuka (Capt) ...... .. Northcroft . Left tackle. Laroque Meyer V Left guard.

Results of the chief football games In which the Princeton and army teams are to participate- will be foreshadowed In to day's contest here when for the -first time In two years the elevens JJX I Princeton university and the United States military academy meet. . The weather conditions at tbe out set of. the day-were made to order, and a hard and fast fight was as sured. Great as was the interest in the game for its own sake' there was even more in the relation of the struggle to those yet to come. ! If the' cadets won then Princeton's chances against Yale would be small, it-is said, while the West Pointers might hope to wipe out their defeat by the navy last year. If the reverse were true then Yale would be wor ried and Annapolis happy, Princeton is generally admitted to be weaker than last season, and "on paper" should drop the game, but the new football Is so uncertain that it is almost Impossible to forecast re sults. Two weeks ago the army was also favorite against Yale, but an un expected penalty cost them the con test. The unexpected might again ocotir to-day. Princeton has made almost unlimited shifts to strengthen the team lately, even taking two candi dates for center rush and placing them at end. The increase of . the coaching staff in the person of a num ber of old "grads" and the return to the line-up of McGrohan, fullback, has also produced a marked Improve ment. West Point was expected to be stronger than when she met Yale. Constant practice has perfected . n number of open plays, including the forward pass and wide circling end runs. G rebel has proved especially effective against the scrubs on the latter plays. . The army it was thought would be handicapped by the absence through injuries of Wood at quarter and Chamberlain at. fullback, both of whom put up a strong game against Yale, , A Trick, Says President. - Washington, Oct 31. Following up the statement made last night from the white house, a second state ment was made to-day by the presi dent He says he has received nu merous letters and telegrams con cerning the Rockefeller statement that he was going to vote for Taft, and he believes it was a trick ar ranged by the democratic managers. If he had wanted Taft elected Rocke feller would have kept quiet, said the president While people here be lieve the president Is honest In his statement, some of them are in clined to the belief that , the Stand ard , Oil Interests will be thrown to Mr Taft In the closing hours of the campaign. .

Pekln,' Oct 3f The presence of tbe second squadron of the American batleshlp", ffe'et at Amoy is hardly known in Pekln. The occurrence is being completely ignored both offi cially and otherwise, that is so far as Peking is concerned. , This probably is because the . festivities in connec tion with the birthday of the empress dowager are coincident with the en tertainment of the visiting Ameri cans. Up to 6 o'clock this evening the foreign board had no news of the arrival of the warships and was still expecting their, coming. Neither had the American legation received a ay news. This silence Is the more re markable because,, the native press has during the past few. weeks given most space to promulgating the idea of an alliance with the Unitew States. Bid for Merlden Bonds.

The men folks did a little in hat line, too, but it Is said that the women got the better bargains, most of them being on the ground ahead of the men and remained at the counters until they picked up nearly, all the choice plums. Some day when there will be bargain sales on bread stuffs the same as we had to-day on tinware, it will not cost as much to live as it does now when one or two parties control the output and regulate the market to suit themselves. .All the' country wants to- moke it prosperous is a lit tle honest competition,' and this will be In .the hands of the people next Tuesday.
