Tin: laijokek Tin: c:k editor Ami Alwaya Huffera the Consequence of a Debased Currency History uf the "C'rlmn of '73." The lust glad rites were observed last nlKht. Tin' campulgn In thin county haa been a warm one and many exciting Inrlih-ntN wore connected with It. The I'.vpulilicaiia have belter organisation here than In any other city In the (late and many (rood speakers have addrcas ed the people of Astoria. The prepara tory battle In over and every Indication polnta to an overwhelming majority In Ihli county for McKinley and Hobart. It In estimated that 1000 vote will lie rant, and that MeKlnlcy's majority will be at the least 700. The last speaker to address the cltl irna of Astoria was John C. Leasure, of Portland, who (poke laat nlKht at the Republican hall to 1000 people. The meeting was opened by a selection by the Olee Club, which reaponded to a hrarly encore. President Delllnser then Introduced Mr. Leaaure, who said: 'Lailles and gentlemen and fellow cltliena: I always esteem It a pleasure to k to the cltliena of Clatsop coun ty. I have met you before and have always found the people of this county to be enthuelaallc In their work. I am particularly graUned at the presence of o many ladles, t am glad to see that they take an Interest In poll I lea. be caune the beet teaching that can be given to the young Is that which Is ex pounded at the dreelde. Presidents are not made In human tempests; they are niiule at the nrenldes of the homes of the country, when the family gather of an evening; and It la here that the young are taught to vote intelligently upon the Issues which may In tho fu ture confront them. So. I nay, it la Inr portant that the ludlei study the lm port quiKtlons of the day and teach them to the children who, when the time cornea, will be In a position to cant their bullolK with Judgment. "It la Impoeiilble, owing to the limited time in which I have to speak, for me to go over all the Important qucs tlima. We are now on the eve of a great campaign and, a there are a great many laboring men here tonight. It ecm to me that 1 should confine myself to the quceUon or the rree coin age of silver. "Ilefore proceeding with the money tUetlon It becomes me to say that the vital Issue Is being covered with a veil. All admit that we are having hard times; all admit that we are passing through a period of hard times; and all who have read the political history of the country know full well that we have pasned through othersperlods like this. Our former distressing situations were not so bad, pcihaim, as that of the present, because the population was smaller and the wealth of tho country was not developed to such a great ex tent. Like causes produce like effects, and I say that tho causes which produc ed tile disastrous times of the 4o's and 'DO's are the same which have caused the hard limes ot toduy. The tariff Is the, real Issue, but you have had such a lesson' In It that it Is useless for me to dwell upon that question." The speaker briefly reviewed the ru inous effects of free trade and tin n turned his nttentjon to the great finan cial question. In answer to the popo cui'tlc argument that the gold standard was the cause of the country's present Ills, ho stated the United Stores expe rienced Us greatest prosperity when Just such money as Is circulated toduy was used. He said he did not believe the sllverltes were honest In their be lief; he failed to see how they could be. He did not wiuit to be understood us saving the Chlcugo convention repre sented the true Democracy, for the lat ter was entitled to, the respect of all. He likened the ropocrutlc party to the riilihlt which, puiBiicd by a wolf, ran up a tree. "Hut," It was suggested, "a rabbit cannot climb a tree." "Well," answered the Btory teller, "he had to." "And this Is the box In which the Popocrats are. They have been chnsed up a tree upon all other questions and have been handing down free silver chestnuts ever since." (Great cheers.) Referring to the argument that, on a dark night In 1873. the Republican par ty sneaked into the back door, shoved a bill through congress, had the presl dont Blgn It the same dark night, and demonetized silver, the speaker said that more silver had been coined since that dark night than In the history of tho country up to that time. Speaking of the "dollar of our daddies," upon which the Popocrats place so much stress, Mr. Leasure said those dollars never were demonetised, but went to France and committed suicide. At that time the ratio hore was 16 to 1 and In France 1M to 1. The consequence was that the American dollar was worth more In 'France than in the United States; and when the awful crime. of '73 was committed, there was in circu lation In this country only 60, 25 and Ifl-ient plccts In silver, all the dollars having iHi-n melted In French mints. "There Is more sliver In circulation In Ihls (ounlry today than in any other country except China and India; there Is moro gold In circulation In the United States thun In any" other country ex cept France; and we have a larger per capita titan any othr country except France. Kngland, without as much gold or sliver, and less per capita, Is the most prosperous country on earth, and all bm-ause she adtd the gold stand ard In 1HIC. Mexico has no gold, and hers Is the fate of any country which adopts the silver- standard. Gold haa flown from Mexico, and she has only .r,.',,WA,Ooo in silver, while the per capita Is hut CM, Would you wish to put our country on a basis with Mexico?" Hpisklng of the government's power Ui "make" ;riofi y, Mr. IvVuure told of a conversation which took plac on the streets of Portland between a whis kered Popocrat and a gold man. The Popocrol stated that all that was neces sary to the coinage of money and Its ability to circulate was the govern ment' slump, which made It. "1 heartily agree with you that the government's stamp makes money," said the gold man, "but right there the government's ower ceases. The I'nlted States might stamp your -vhls-ker as hay, but It could never pass a law compelling a horse to eat them." Holding up two dollars, one a Mexi can coin, and the other an American dollar, Mr. Leasure said the one was worth 50 cents and the other 100 cents. "Now," be asked, "why Is this? Mere ly because the Mexican' dollar la worth only what tho world says It shall be. The fact that It has nothing behind it, as has the American dollar, accounts for Its failure to circulate outside of The Foreigner's Right to Vote. It is learned that tbe local Bryan managers, rendered desperate by the overvt belniing sentiment in this county for McKinley, are attempting to deter certain fishermen and others of former foreign nationality from voting for protection and sound money by casting doubts on their eligibility to vote. all nuturalizod citizens or tlioso in process of naturalization that the Oregon Constitution does not requiro a man to hold his final papers before giving him a right to vote. the Constitution of Washington, going about quoting. The Washington Constitution deprives a foreigner of the right to vote until naturalization. Tho Oregon Constitution, on the contrary, gives every man a right to vote who has become a citizen olie vear preceding the election. The section of the Oregon Constitution which fixes all state and national elections is as Sec. 2. In nil elections not otherwise provided for by this consti tution, every (white) male citizen twenty-one years and upwards, who luring the six months immediately every (white) malo of foreign birth and upwards, who shall have resided iu this state during tbe six months limuediatelv preceding such his intention to become a citizen of ceding such election, conformably the subject of naturalization, shall authorized bv law. Mexico for more than 50 cents. But it Is worth 100 cents In an other respect, ns would our dollar be under free coinage. It Is worth 100 cents to Mexican spec ulators, who pay oft their laborers in that money, after selling the product of that labor for gold. The laborer is always the creditor a tact which every worklngman should bear In mind; and the laborer Is Ixmnd to suffer the con sequences of a debased currency. "Vote to sustain this dollar," he said, holding up un American piece; "vote for an honest dollar and a chance to earn It. It does seem to me that tl)ls occasion Is an important one. Your very homes are at stake and" you should Mite, each and every one, to bring about a return to prosperity. "I hope to hear of your Joyous hhouta tomorrow night over the telegraph to Portland when the news cornea that you have given McKinley a majority of 1000; and I promise you we will roll up a majority of 6000." Loud and prolonged cheers followed tho close of Mr. Leusure's remarks and" the meeting came to an end with nev eral selections by the Glee Club. PRETTY TOUGH TOWN. Portland, November 2. A Republican street meeting at the corner of Third and Ankeny streets was broken up to night by a crowd of llryan supporters, who shouted and yelled so the speaker, W. T. Hume, could not be heard, and llnally they resorted to throwing eggs, which struck one gentleman on the platform. Hume called upon the police men present to arrest the leaders of tho disturbance, but tho policemen re fused to do so. A request was sent to the sheriff's office and a number of deputy sheriffs responded and arrested one of the leaders. For a time It was feared a riot would result, but the speaker was allowed to proceed after the arrest of one man. Attorney Clyde Fulton delivered an address at the Republican meeting at Fort Stevens lost night, which was a large and enthusiastic gathering. Meany is the leading tailor, and pays the highest cash price for fur skins. RUN ON CHICAGO SUB-TREASURY Tbe .News from San Francisco Causes a Demand for Gold.

Berlewa, a soldier, shot repeatedly at an unknown man this evening, killing the rider's horse, and wounding him, he thinks.

It was almost midnight tonight when Bryan spoke the last word Incident to his campaign. He had then made seven speeches In Omaha, beginning at 7 o'clock In the evening, and had preceded the night's work with fifteen speeches made during the day, all In the state of Nebraska. His strongest efforts wers generally di rected at tho crowds containing more than the usual number of persons dec orated with gold badges. The demonstrations In tbe way of greeting and of applause were exceed ingly cordial. Those who wore the yel low insignia treated him with entire respect and In some instances applaud ed his utterances. At no time In the campaign has Bryan been In better physical or mental condition than he was for bis closing day. He appeared to realize that he was nearlng the end of the arduous siege, and he did not make the usual effort to conserve his physical strength. He allowed his voice. which Is still unimpaired, full range. He ppent greater time than ordinarily between the speeches chatting with friends. In these conversational he did not display the least nervousness over the near approach of tbe campaign's doss, and to all outward appearaiicea he was quite as unconcerned as were any of his company. When, Bryan closed his last speech In Omaha tonight his linen was as wet from perspiration as If It had been put in a bathtub. But he was stUl buoy ant and professedly as hopeful as be had ever been in the campaign. He de clined to make any statement for pub lication as to his hopes of the outcome of tomorrow's contest. He said to his friends, however, that be still felt abso lutely confident and expressed a belief that tomorrow's result would Justify bis most sanguine claims. THE MARKETS. Wheat Makes Another Advance, In Spite of the Near Approach of Election. - Chicago, November 1 Wheat proved more Interesting than had been ex pected of it today, the day before elec tion. Trading was not very heavy but orders to buy were in the majority, and sellers could only be found when high er prices were bid. The strength came principally from this situation. Liver pool opened IVid higher for futures and reported a decrease in the stocks of wheat which was already ot 1,350,000 bushels. The figures on the world's shipments wer conflicting but all of them were large- and this was a dis quieting Influence, but only temporarily so. Tho quantity on ocean passage was (40,000 bushels less. The net re sult was a very strong market December, which at the close Satur day was bringing K72, opened this morning with buyers at from "2Si to 4. During the last fifteen minutes an extra spasm of bullishness carried the price to 75 cents. The closing was at 74 75. ' REED AT OAKLAND. Oakland, Cal., November 2. The town was in gala attire today and the Repub licans are in high feather, for with the Reed meting this afternoon and the monster parade this evening, the cause of gold went up several points.

NEBRASKA'S VOTE DOUBTFUL Republicans Claim a Plurality of 10,000, While tbs Democrats Are Abso lutely Certain ot (.000. Chicago, November 2. On tho night before the battle, serene and unbound ed confidence reigns In the headquar ters camp of the Democratic party and In that of its Republican rivals as well. On neither side la there f- shadow of aouDt of the result or tbe struggle, and. In fact so sure are the two parties ot victory that there. Is on both sides a feeling of astonishment that the other fellow has the audacity to claim any thing at alL At both headquarters there was a general exodus for home and voting booths. Chairman Hanna left for Cleve land tonight and, after casting his rote, he wlU go to Canton for a visit with Major McKinley, returning to Cleve land at 2:30. and will receive the elec tion returns in bis office. Henry C Payne, of the Republican headquarters, left for Milwaukee this evening, and will return tomorrow after casting his vote. At the Democratic headquarters Chairman Jones, who said tonight that be had no more statements to make. will remain at his post He is confi dent of the result In Arkansas without his vote, and will receive the returns la this city. BOTH CLAIM NEBRASKA. Omaha, November 2. The state cen tral committees are tonight comparing; figures on the state polls and winding; up the details of the campaign. It to now conceded that there will be much confusion In the state among those de siring to vote for Bryan, since his elect ors are designated as "Democratic and People's Independent" on the ticket The secretary of state decided that tho Palmer and Buckner organization was the only recognised Democratic party In the state, and their electors go oa the ticket marked Democrats. The sil ver Democrats are hopeful tonight and claim their poll gives Bryan the stats by at least 6,000, though admitting that the Populist vote will be cast largely for Watson. Ther is a considerable "middle-of-the-road" element in the Nebraska Populist party. Republics leaders, who were claiming the state by a small majority two weeks ago, are now confident that McKlnley's plural ity will run upwards of 10,000. ohio for Mckinley. Cincinnati, November 2. The Repub licans generally concur in the official statement of Chairman Kurts that Ohio will give McKinley a larger plurality than It has ever given any candidal for president or governor with the ex ception of Brough's majority in 1863 of 1M AAA 1U1.UW. BRYAN'S TRICK. In discussing politics yesterday a lo cal Republican said: A favorite point that Bryan makes in speeches is an ap peal to the crowd for gold. AU the gold, he persists in saying, that is not held in Lombard street and by the effete mon archs of the Old World is stored away in the vaults of the plutocrats of the East. And then, to drive home his re marks he will ask every man in the crowd who has any gold in his pockets to raise up his hand. Of course few hands are raised; the average citizen does not, as a rule, carry the yellow metal with him in the shape of coin. Whereupon Mr. Bryan shakes his head, claps hla hands and triumphanUy in quires: " What did 1 tell you? There Is no gold among the people; only silver, their natural money." A dav or two after making this speech in Galesburg, iil, v arner Miller came along. He had heard about Bryan's speech, and. after referring to it, called out to the crowd: I want every man, woman and child In this audience who has a hen's eee In his or her pocket to hold up hands." A unanimous negative was uproarously recorded. "Now," said Mr. Miller, sol emnly, "doesn't that prove my assertion that there is not a hen left In the country?" The rest of his speech. of course, was drowned in a roar of laugh ter by the crowd, which was quick to see that the one argument was as sound as the other. Lawyer F. D. Winton and Dr. Beck- man addressed a large Republican meeting in Uniontown last night No bets, It Is said, could be had by Republicans last night on any proposition.
