I do not believe that there is anything that can be done by any other nation on earth which we can not do, but there are some things which neither we no any other nation can aecompll.sh alone or single-handed. 'On this free silver question I will say that I do not believe that the na tion can possibly prosper with free trade upon the one side and free silver upon the other. My friends, the lie- publican party Is and always has been, the true friend of sliver. And whatever la to be done upon this subject, I ra In favor of doing that work through the ranks of that party w hich has al ways stood for the best Interests of the people.(Applause.) When has the Demo cratic, party ever done anything within the ranks of that party which has not Been a botch? The Republican party today Is the only party which la equal to the emergency now confronting the American people. True bimetallism, if ever adopted, will be adopted by Inter national agreement and through the efforts of the Republican party. The St. Lnula platform pledges our party to this action, and If Mr, McKlnley Is elected he will take his seat In the White House pledged to that principle. We have bimetallism today In one sense. All our money circulates at a parity, and I do not want to see any legislation that will change that pnrlty. Every dollar which circulates among the worklngmen must be a dollar that la worth 100 cents. ' "Some of our adversaries say that we are now monometalllsts. Others argue that to adopt free silver would make us silver monometalllBts. Were these propositions true nnd we were compelled to accept one or the other of the horns of this dilemma, how much better that we adopt the gold standard and place ourselves upon equality with the other nations of the earth.

They are going back to Grandpas Palmer and Buckner In order that they may stand with clear con- sciences upon their own principles. "Like the old farmer In Iowa who for years staunchly supported the prln- clples of Democracy, when asked what he thought of the Chicago platform, he said that lt made little difference about the platform, as It was made for a corpse.

"The present season has been an ex- tremely disastrous one. In fact, it has been one succession of gales which pre vented the sealers from securing good catches. For weeks and weeks the sealers have been unable to lower a boat, and I think that this accounts for the failure of 1SA6, and the inability of the sealers to secure the usual supply ; of skins. From Information that I could gather during the past winter, the winds from the south have failed to ' materialise, and consequently the bad 'season set In much earlier than usual j "We made the star catch of the sea- son. e seised three vessels in one ; day for being in the prohibited lone, and the fourth one only escaped from ' our surveillance because of our lnablt j lty to manage the three we already had In tow and catch the other fellow.

In conversation and Interviews I Wth some of the members of the mixed ! commission sent out by England and the Vnlted States, I learned that in thelr opinion the seals are not receiving the protection that they deserve, and in all probability precautions of a widely different nature from what have before jioen used will be adopted during the ; coming season.

Active Condition of Trade In Wheat on the Chicago Board. Chicago, October 1. December wheat, which closed yesterday at Wi', open ed this morning at 6S69c, and in a little over an hour It went as high as 10c, being 13 cents above Its price on Monday, September 9. an average ad vance of -c per bushel a day for the Intervennlg twenty-two daye. An ad vance so steady has not taken place since the spring of 18&5, in May of that year 20 cents per bushel having been added. A remarkable thing about the rise now In progress is that It Is In the face of more or lees uncertainty regard ing the political outlook. The advance to 70M, waa followed by a reaction to but that In turn was succeeded by a still further addition to Its early strength, and before 12 o'clock the price had r!?ctt to "04c for December. Such continued strength surprised the crowd who were looking for breaks. But lt was not nam 10 explain, ime r.ew York dispatch read as follows: 'English houses again accepted a good deal of wheat There Is a demand here for cargoes for shipment as far ahead as February."

STARTLING TELEGRAMS. Canadian Pacific Operators Awaiting the Action of Other Employes. Toronto, October 1. The question now discussed regarding the railway teleg raphers' strike is, will the railway or ganizations Join the telegraphers in their fight against the Canadian Paclllc. Both the company and the strikers are awaiting the action of the engineers, conductors and trainmen as to the pol icy they will adopt. The trades and labor unions In the city are In sympa thy with the strikers and the fact that United States operators are coming to this country to fill vacant positions In tensifies the feeling.

A SURPRISE AT ATCIIISO.V School Childres. Old Soldiers. I sited Statct Regitars, rireeei and Civic Societies Juis is the Reception- Del icate Attention Topcka, Kan., October 1. The federal general entered Kansas today front Nebraska and made their first stop at Atchison at an early hour this morning. The party had not been apprised of any demonstration at that point, and were agreeably surprised when ex-Senator Jno. J. lngalls entered their coach at S o'clock at the head of a reception committee. The party was escorted te the depot where several thousand school children, a flambeau club, and a band were lined up to receive the vis itors. Senator Ingalls acted as presi dent of the meeting and Introduced General Howard. The general waa en thusiastically greeted. He spoke at some length, upholding the St. Louis platform, and was heartily cheered. As General Howard stepped from the platform a shower of bouquets were thrown by the school children upon him and three cheers were given for Generad Howard and Senator Ingalla. General Alger, spoke briefly, saying; among other things: "I want to say that I don't believe all the stories I hear that Kansas Is going; to repudiate her obligations and con tinue to go down hill. There Is nothing the matter with Kansas." (Cheers.) General Sickles 'followed and said he wanted his hearers to send Senator Ingalls back to the senate. Continuing; he said New York would give McKlnley 500,000 majority. At Tcpeka there was a great demon stration. As each of the "generals entereS the reviewing stand he was given a rous ing cheer. The parade was participated In by the old soldiers. United State regulars, Kansas National Guards, Bre men's association other military and civic societies and something over 300 school children. The number of per sons in the line was variously esti mated from 35,000 to 40.000. Twice as many more people thronged the streets. The members of the party unite in saying that the most pleasing Incident so far of their journey was the delicate bit of courtesy shown by Mrs. Bryan, the wife of the Democratic candidate for president, who, while the procession in honor of the visiting generals was moving past her bouse In Lincoln, dis played over her door a large portrait of Wm. McKlnley tastefully draped In the national colors. It was a touch of womanly grace, beautiful as lt was unexpected, and Gen. Alger says that he will cherish It as a sweet recollec tion plucked from an acrimonious cam paign until the end of his days. ANOTHER BRYAN TRICK, Leadville, Col., October 1. As a re sult of the miners' union meeting last night a majority have decided to re main quiet until after election. If Mc Klnley Is elected the present intention is to abandon the strike; if Bryan is elected the hope is that the price of sil ver will advance and the managers will at once concede all the demands of the union.
