word. Hiit we have with tu this mornlm one of tfie most dlstlnntilihcil citizens or th * United StntPS. ( Looking around. ) I did not know but mint ho hn < l escaped. ( lyallKhtcr ) The senator of the stale of Illinois , we'l ' known to all of you , Hon. Shelby M t'ullom. ( Tremendous applause. ) Senator. Cullom's speech was also brief. Ho told of the rivalry among statoc lo roll up the biggest McKlnley ma jorities , lie told In a happy way that there wan nothing the mutter with the cur rency nnd that when the tariff was prop erly adjusted along the lines of protection , the country would bo all right ; confidence ! and proxpcrlty will bo restored , and silver agitation will be forgotten. CAIINK01B WORKERS COM 13. During this meeting the deleRatcs from the Carnegie * City mills , 1,200 strong , came In , and their reception was also hrld In the opera houee. L. T. Ilrown , superintendent of the mills. Introducing the party , in reply to the protnl.TS of support on election day and pledges of loyalty to the doctrines of sound money and protection , Mr. McKlnley said : Mr. Ilrown nnd My Fellow Citizens : Nothing moves me more dee-ply than to have the assurances of support which 1 nm dally icuelvlni ; from the m.'ti who toll In tbo United States. To htlve ns iillliw In this great contest for the honor and pros perity of thp country , the worklngmen of the United Htntis Is Indeed a crown to any cause. Vou have but uno aim In thu use of your ballots , and that Is lo secure tin- high est and great cat good to the people of the United HtiitcH. ( Applause. ) That Is what the ballot Is for , unit It U for the accom plishment of tlmt that you will u e that ballot this year. Wo have had In this coun try an experience under two eontendliiK national policies. Most of the men who sit before in today never hud any nxpirlenco under any but the one policy until within the last four years. Vou have now tried them both. You have trle'd the protective ! policy of the lupubllenn party and you have tried thn free ) trade revenue tariff pollry of tha democratic party. Which du you likes best ? ( Cries of "Protection" nnd toot ing of horns. ) If It la piotreUinn you pre fer , tlieTe Is Just one way to get It , and that Is to vote for It. ( CrlfH of "Vote for JlcKlnleyl That's what wo will do. " ) Un der the republican protective policy we en joyed for moro than thirty years the. most marvelous prosperity that had ever been glve.n to any nation of thu world. We not only hail Individual prosperity , but wo had national prosperity ; and timing all thcso thirty yearn , while wn wcro building up great Industries to furnish employment to American labor at American wages- all the tlmo we were dolnp that , we were collecting under that tnrlfT policy ample revenue ! for current cxpetiseu ami n sur plus revenue to pay off the public debt ( Applause. ) And from 1879 down to 1S03 this government had been a debt-paying and not a debt-making government. ( .Ap plause. ) TRIED IT BEFORE. But I need not discuss to a Pennsylvania audience : tills great American principle. You are familiar with It ; It Is written In your hearts ; It has been exemplified In your happy homes ; It lias brought clicur and contentment to your fanilllle-y , nnd you know It. ( Cries of "That's rlnlit. " ) And , knowing It. you will vote this year with full knowledge. Then , my countrymen , we have presented to us n very dangerous peril to tbo country , a proposition to enter upon the free und Independent unlimited eioln- age of silver , and the Issuance of Irredc-em- able paper mone-y. That proposition sim ply means that as our labor film be.cn de graded by free trade , so the wages of our countrymen shall bo degraded by free sil ver and Inflated currency , and as wo nre against free trade , wo will be against free silver. ( Applnuso nnd tooting of horns. ) Now , just om > word more , what wo want In this country Is that every man who WIIIIIH to work shall have an opportunity to work. ( Cries of "You are right. " ) And then when he has performed an honest day's work for his employer we mean he shall be paid In honeKt dollars. ( Tre mendous applause. ) I assure you , gentle men , I appreciate more than I cnn lull you your warm assurances of support to the republle-nn cause which , for the moment , and In this contest , I reprc-sptit. I would bo glad to talk with you longer , but an other delegation for we nre having them all the time In Canton Is awaiting for me elsewhere. I thank you nil and wish you all a safe return home , and wish for nil prosperity In your vocations and pence nnd love and contentment In your homea. ( Tre mendous applause ) No hall could be found sufficiently large for the crowd of railroad men and they braved the rain to hold their reception on the lawn about 2 o'clock this afternoon. On behalf of the rnllreiail men an nddicns was made by J. W. Doilgo of the Illinois Central , and on behalf of the Commercial Teleg raphers' McKlnley club of Chicago by M. J Burke. It began to rain Just as Major Mc- Klnloy began to speak. But he declined to have an umbrella held over him and stood In the shower as did his auditors. He spoke at some length on the Importance of the railroad Interest and how It Is In fluenced by the questions of thu present campaign. Ho spoke from an Improvised platform In front of his house , amid scenes ot the wildest enthusiasm. FIGURES ON RAILROADS. Mr. McKlnloy'B speech to the railroaders , which was the principal speech of the elay , was ns follows : My Fellow Citizens : It would be a hard heart Indeed which would not be moved by this splendid demonstration. I bid you each and every one ot you a sincere wel come to my home. ( Cheers. ) T count it among the greatest honors of my life to have fi.OOO representative men from the great railroad lines of the country cen tered In Chicago come to this city to give mo their assurances that In the year 1S3 < 1 they stand by protection , reciprocity and sound money. ( Great applause. ) These delegations , coming long distances , pro- pent n remarkable phase ) In our political life nnd evidence the deep sollcltndu they linve for the welfare of our country. Such n demonstration as this -would not bo pos sible If the people of thn country were not profoundly sensible of the dangerous menace which Is presented In the national contest of this year. ( Applause and cries of "Wo are all Interested. " ) You iiro he.re today , men of nil parties and creeds , be cause you want to defeat the effort which Is now being nrtdduously made to destroy the credit nnd currency ot the country , nnel also bee.nuso loving law and order you want to stump out the spirit of law lessness and repudiation which now threat ens It. ( Applause and cries of "That's what we will do. " ) Your active Interest In thlH contest for good polities , good government , good morals nnd good money will bo helpful In every part of the country nnd Insi-lilng to the friends of good gov ernment everywhere. The railway 1 the mightiest factor ot modern civilization. If one proof above nny other bad been asked for the superi ority of the Viilted States above other countries of equal or approaching terri tory , 1 know of no better evidence ( linn thn fact that of tbo 4:17.000 : miles of rail road In the world wo have nearly SfO.OOa miles In this e-ountry. ( Applause nnd cries of "Good ! " ) To trace their history during the past twenty years would bo to write the prncivBH of the country Itm-lf , BO In- tlmntely are they associated. To fay that they have cost $9.000.000.000. employ 1,000.- 000 of men with W.OOO locomotive.- ) .

The grpnte-.it trib ute which cnn be pnlil to the reallro.iil men of the country Is that high degree of cnrn and attention nnd skill which they give to the service , performing the mo.-U delicate and responsible duties , engaged In n bUBl- nipst In which both life and property arc Involved , where hreJle snes.i or careless ness would .Marrlllcn cither or both ; and yet the percentage ot loss U merely nominal In both cases.

Itilt It 1 * not the rpmarkablc enterprise of our r.iliroad * both In eijulp- m tit and extension , that Impresses us , as it Is the safety and cillclvney In evury branch of the service.

( .Cheering. ) Not only nre skP.I and endurance required n their exacting dlill'-s , but thp greatest watchfulness and fidelity , ami often the ke-cm-st intelligence to think and act In stantly uniler circumstances the most perilous nnd trying. ( Applause and crlert of "That's right , major. " ) 1 have sal 1 thut rullio.ld men au > cool and collected , bravo and vigilant In the dl chnrne ot their duties ( great applause. ) , and mirely gruittr praise could not bo given them than this. "l-'alllitiil unto denth , " has been truly written of many a brave engineer , con ductor or hrnkcniati , who perlshejj Hither than abandon his train when mat was possible ) at thu expense ot others. ( Great applause und erics of "That's right. " ) So worthy are thrse devoted servants nf the public , HI ) watchful , that railway accidents ale wild by competent authority to be neither as frequent nor fatal ns other modes of transportation. In tne great state of Illinois and the great city ot Chicago cage are nearly 11WO miles of railway. 1 have read the * oltlclal statement of your railroad commissioners , nnd In the year ended Julv SO , IMU , Including the ImmcniU ! tralllc of the World's fair the gre itcnt ever known up to date only sixty-live lives were lost. Truly "tho laborer Is worthy of bis hire , " nnd faithful to employer and the public. public.NON10 NON10 HAS MORK AT STAKH. And. my fellow citizens , I am glad to say that wnge\s of the ratlro.nl men nru larger by iluublo In this country than In nny other country of the worlel. ( Grout np- plause and cries of 'That's right. " ) Your spokesman has justly oluervcil that no body of Americans has greater Interests at stake In the pending political campaign than the rallroail men. who are everywhere taking the liveliest Interest In the proper sotlU-meiit of the great principles Involved In it ( Applause. ) The triumph of free- silver would mean to you , as xliu adoption by .Mexico has meant to the railroad em ployes of that country , a decrease In the purchasing power or tne money In which tlioy are paid of fully one-half , with eom- paiatlvely no Increase In wanes. ( Cries of "We don't want it , and we. will not have It. " ) Not only that , but It would mean In evitable elccrciiHu of employment and gen eral distress. A fifty-cent dollar , employes of the railroad companies , will no more addle lo your eNirnlngK man thn railroad would add lo their trafllc by diminishing the size of tholr cars. ( Great cheering. ) The rail road men are deeply Interested In the pros perity of the country. They know from i perlence that when the country Is pros perous , railroads nro prosperous , und when railroads are prosperous , they linve sle'ndy work and remunerative employment. They know tlmt when the business of thu coun try I poor , the buslne-ss of thu railroads Is poor , and the employes MiifTVr both in tlmo and pay. They are Interested , too , In good money , and they are In favor ol law nnd order. They want to perpetuate our free Institutions for their children , for ever and forever more. They are zealous , like all good citizens , for thu honor of the country , and they mean to malntnln un sullied the proud name of America. They do not believe either In public or private dishonor. They want the government to pay Its debts In the ? best currency known to iln > commercial world , and they want the railroad companies to pay them In the best currency of the- world , currency that will not be questioned und that will pass cur rent everywhere for Its face value without discount or depreciation. I cannot conceive of a more potent force in our politics than men who traverse this country from one end of It to the other , nnd to fee-l thut u large percentage of that force Is enlisted In the republican cause and lighting for the sake of republican principles Is an assur ance of victory which will gladden every patriotic heart. ( Great applause. ) You are solicitous for thu trains In your charge You guard them with sleepless activity from wrecks and wreckers , and as citizens of this glorious republic you are deeply concerned In Its prosperity and honor nnd will guard with equal caru from wreck the credit and currency nnd courts of the. United States The signals of dan ger to public safety and honor are as quickly and faithfully heeded by you ns the danger signals which your roads have established for the safety of life and prop erty committed to your care. ( Great cheer , ing. ) The perils which lie along the path of the nation's process you would belli to removes as you would remove tboso along the track of the mighty railroad you oper- ale. 1 welcome the railroad employes of this country as allies In this great contest for Ihu country's honor , and the coun try's nag. ( Great cheering. ) The contest this year , my countrymen. If It results In a victory for the republican party , will not be a mere party victory , but a victory deeper and broader and more significant than that , for It will represent the votes of men of all parties who unite with the republican party in the patriotic purpose to preserve the honor of the coun try. ( Applause and cries of "That's right. " ) AMth the many delegations that nr- > visit ing me today , the one crowding the other , I am sure that you will excuse me from talking at greater length , much as I would lie glad to do to tills splendid audience of earnest and patriotic men. I tlmnk you one and all for this visit. It has been an Inspiration to me , and I believe It will beef of tnvalimblu service to the cause In which wo are all engaged. ( Great applause. ) Turning from the railroad men to the delegation of telegraphers , the nominee ad dressed the latter body , briefly reviewing the history of the telegraph and commenting upon Its marvelous development In the pres ent day. In conclusion , ho thanked the telegraphers for their assurances of sup port. port.The The crowd was so large and other dele gations crowded so fast that the usual pro gram of handshaking had to bo eliminated. These nearest Major McKlnley made a rush for him , and besides tearing down part of the stand , almost tore his clothes from his back. MANY OTHERS IN WAITING. Two delegations were massed In one for the next address. There wcro the people from Mercer county , Pennsylvania , about 2,500 In number , and the Duller county , Pennsylvania , delegation , also a largo one. These delegations brought three or four bands , a number ot clubs , and four or five hundred golly uniformed men. In their congratulatory address , the spokesman for these delegations assured Major McKlnlcy tlmt his majority would be the largest In tha history of the Keystone state. In reply Major McKlnley said he appreciated the message which came from the farmers and the worklngineu of these two counties. Re ferring to the need of protection against the worklngmen of the old world , ho said : "This U our country , and If wo don't have It just ns wo want It , It will bo our fault and nobody's else. " Then , utter assuring the farmers that they required protection to build up their homo markets , ho closed by advising them to vute for that party which they believed If you get best wear out of a coat , best work must have gone into it. You can't get good bread out of poor Hour. Moral : You can't get the best out of anything , unless the best is in it ; nnd the best has to be put iu before it can bo taken out. Now , we have a rule to test those sarsaparillas with a big "best" on the bottle. "Tell us what's put in you and we'll decide for ourselves about the best. " That's fair. But these modest sarsaparillas say : 4 < Oh 1 we can't tell. It's a secret. Have faith in the label , " . . . Stop ! There's one exception ; one par- saparilla that has no secret to hide. It's Ayer's. If you want to know what goes into Ayer'a Sarsaparilla , ask your doctor to write for the formula. Then you can satisfy yourself that you get the best of the sarsaparilla argument when you get Ayer'a. Any doubt left ? Cettha 1 1 kllli doubll but cuict douUlcrl. Acldrtitl J , C.

Major McKlnley hurried to the house j when this address was finished to pay i sorno attention to Individual callers awaitIng - ! Ing him In the library. He just reached i the door when the committee of the Rail- i rofcil Men's Hold Standard club of the I northern division of the 1'lttsburi ; A West ern railroad from Foxburg. 1'a. , overhauled him and demanded n response to the Intro duction of their president. He returned and complied with their request. i The next delegation to seek an audience was the commercial travelers of Cincin nati , accompanied by Mayor Caldwcll and 1 a number of prominent Cincinnati business men. Theirs was a large and distinguished , looking delegation , which had packed n train of twenty coaches. The members of the organization wore white hats and large ' badges and carried canes , and were very stylish In appearance. Music was furnished by the Klrst Hcglmrnt band , l.cvl C. Oood- I ale , cx-pri-sldent of the Cincinnati Chamber ' of Commerce , was the spokesman. | After Major McKlnley had addressed them . the Clnclnnatlans surrounded him on the porch nnd were shaking hands with him ] at the rate of more than one a second , when I the horsrtnen escorted n long line of ear- I rlages and a longer line of marchers to the ! irata This benly was the Commercial Trav- 1 elers of Plttsburg , with their wives nnd ! friends In the carriages. They brought a I floral tribute of Immense : lzu and great beauty to Mrs. McKlnley , and their prcsl- ' , dent placed a large roseate badge of the club with special Inscriptions on Major Mc- . Klnlev'a lapol. Addresses were made by ; Percy F. Smith and William II. Uccd , prcsl- i dent of thePlttsburg Commercial Travelers' l council , to which the nominee replied. I The next company to call was composed of Hungarian-American cltUcns of Clovn- ! land , each of whom waved a small Amcrl- ! can flag. Dr. II. Stener and State lleprc- scntatlvo Joseph C. Hloch made addresses. which were acknowledged by Major McKln. ley. Thu last organization to call was tin1 Hardware Men's MrKlnley and Hobart club of Cleveland , made up of the dealers and their employes , hut organized by the lat ter. It was In charge of the president , Major Gcmmlll , nnd was Introduced by Charles A. Parsons. Kach of the men In the party wore a white duck cap nnd car ried a tin cane.

( Special. ) One of the notable refusals In this stat of prominent democrats to follow the va garles of the Dryanltcs Is thnt of Hon. N'el- Us E. Corthcll of this city , late chairman of thu Wyoming state democratic commit tee. Mr. Corthcll has expressed his viewb publicly of the democratic platform of Al bany county In Us declarations for sliver In the following manner : "Tho declaration of the platform demand ing the free and unlimited coinage of sil ver and gold Into primary and redemp tion money nt the ratio of 1C to 1 without waiting for the action or approval of any other uovernment means that the United States shall immediately make the most radical change In Its money system over attempted by any government , "It means that we shall undertake alono. without charge , and for the sole benefit of the bullion owner , to manufacture Into coins all the silver material which may be brought from any part of the world. "It means that we shall force every citi zen of this country , by law , to accept sil ver at double Its real value In payment ol all debts and in exchange for his property or labor. "It me.ins that wo shall abandon all hope of establishing bimetallism and substitute at once a silver standard for the gold stand ard. ard."If "If I were to propose the free and un limited coinage of silver and gold at the- ratio of < M to 1 I should be justly regardeel as an uncompromising gold monometalllst. because Its real value Is as 32 to' 1 ; and everybody .knows that.n law which professes to glvp genial value to GO cents. ' worth of ! gold and a dollar's worth of silver would result In driving the more valuable article out of usi > and substituting the less valuable one in Its place. Vet the one proposal is no more absurd or Impossible of fruition than the other. GeM at 1 to Cl Is no more overvalued than silver at 1C to 1. Each is 100 pe- cent out of the way from Its present Intrinsic value. Either ratio would result In Immediate monometallism. "So It has beccmo n question of ratios ; and , under the proposed ratio of 16 to 1 , a question of standards silver or gold not both , bui one. "I have advocated the democratic , policy of bimetallism , fully conscious of the dlfll- cultles In the way of Us accomplishment , If not Its actual Impossibility. Hut , under this resolution , it Is now clearly made a question of enforced choice between the single silver standard , with the use of but one metal upon the one hand , and the exist ing gold standard , with the actual use of both metals , and the possibility of an ulti mate double standard , upon the other hand. "Detween the single silver standard and the existing gold standard there cannot bp any possible hesitation in making a choice. I am a civilized person , living In a civil ized country and In a progressive ago. 1 am in favor of the civilized and modern money standard as against the standard of uncivilized and unprogrosslve countries.

Ho said : "There Is abso lutely nothing lu this talk about my with drawal. The thing Is absurd. I shall not rctlro under any circumstances.

WASHINGTON' , Sept. 10. A heavy wind nuil rnln storm seriously interfered with the arraiigeteeiits which hud been mado.by the local committee for a Brand reception to Candidatellryan at the Old Capital Ilase Hall park this afternoon. The crowd was bnlow the expectations nf those who hail the arrnnsoirents Ih charge , but there was no laclt of enthusiasm. When Mr. Bryan appeared on the platform he w.is receives ! with such a deironfetratlon as Is rarely re corded a public speaker. For fully five minutes the cheering continued. Mr. Hrynn standing barchuadrH 'ahJ e'vlflonlly much Kratlncd at receiving such unmistakable evidence of approval of himself anil his cause. For pome time bofnrc his arrival dark rain nnd wind-laden clouds from the west gave certain prnmlsd of n elonnpotir nnd he had not spoken more- than forty minutes when the rain came down In torrents , drcnrhln : ? every onn exposed to It. mill , the great crowd kept their places and cheered and called to the speaker to go em. The scene was a remarkable one. After waiting semis time , however , Mr. Itryan left the platform and droveto his hotel. Almost every sen tence In the speaker's brief address \\ta wildly cheered , The. nominee opened his speech by a reference ) td his four j-cars of oniclal life In Washington , which provoked the cry "We'll make It four metro" from .his audience. Then when ha strongly en dorsed the homo rule plank In the Oitcag platform the audience was especially vo ciferous , but there was still greater ap plause when ho said the democracy stood opposed to life tenure in the public service nud In favor of cppolutments based upon morlt , and In favor of aueh an administra tion of the civil service laws as will afford equal opportunities to all citizens at ascer tained fitness Continuing , he snld : My frluiiilri , we me. in f.ivor o' elvll serv ice reforms thill mean lomc'lhlnir and not n civil seivlco law that permits the presi dent to misppiidthe civil service Inn until he can KCI his friends In ofllee nd per mit another president to extend It Just as he la golnc out to Jeep Ms friends in.

CAUI.JSMJ3 IS HIS KIllRNO. Now. my ifrlends , I want to Hill your attention to. one other subject. Our op ponents are doing as much for us In tills campaign as we nre able to do for our selves. ( Applau'c' . ) And of nil the pub1 ! ! documents Recently issued the most 1m nortant Is a , latter Just given to the pub lic written Ijy the. . .secretary of the treasury , from which , , I d/'n're to quote one sen tence : "It ja the duty of the secretary nf the treasury Tind all other public of ficials to execute in good faith the pol icy declared by cbnsross , " and mark there words : "Huf' ' whenever he shall be futlsfied thut a silver dellar cannot b.i ' .toot oiual in purchasluK p wcr with a t-old dollar , except by receiving It In exchange for a gold dollar -when such exchange la de manded , it will Ire His duty to adopt that course.

I call your attention to It , my friends , be cause I want to emphasize the doec-jitlon thnt has been pnieMceel by tills mlinin- l tration on the money que&tlon. When this administration advised the repeal of the Sherman law you were told trie repeal of the Sherman law would remedy the dif ficulty ; nml as soon aa the Sherman law was repeated the same authority which promised relief as Boon as thnt lav/ was repealed en mo to congress with n demand tl-at the greenbacks antl treasury note- must lie retired by the issue of cold bonds In order to stop the drain on the treas ury gold , and now the Becretary of the treasury Informs you that , even If the- STCPiiliacks nrd the trensurv notes iven all retired , It would lie Ills duty , whenever In his opinion It became necessary , to re deem silver dollars' In eo'd and tMis start another endless chain thnt would drain the treasury. ( Great aaplaiHi * . ) According to thn doctrine laid down In Mr Carlisle's letter you cannot stop the drain of gold from the treasury until you retire nil the sliver dollars nnd silver certiorates and leave everything- but gold as the money In this country.

( Great ap plause. ) I denounce the policy ns more cruel and heartless than political domina tions of n forelR'i ' power. I would rather , as some one has said I would rather put our army In-the hands of a foreign general - eral , or our navy In command of a foreign admiral than to put the Treasury depart ment li | the hands of a secretary who would barter It away. ( Great applause. ) I would resist such a financial policy with ns much earnestness aa I would resist the progress of an Invading army coming to attack our hosts.

Itnow thnt after they were all retired , It would propose the policy which the wrretnrv of ton treasury has outlined ? If It did and did not tell the people , It wu.s dishonest In not taking the people Into the confidence of the admin istration ; and If It did not know that then , will It ronfesn Its Ignorance of monetary laws nnd the finance * of this country ?

( Applause. . ) Our opponents tell us that they want a dollar which they can Pee anywhere In the world If they travel abroad. I am not so much worried about our dollars which travel abroad.

( Great iipplauso. ) I'eoplo can have Just as good a dollar as ttioy want , because dollars are creatures of law ami you can dotcrmlnu the purchasing power of a dollar when you determine the number of dollars.

If our dollars are not good enough now , when a dollar will buy ten bushels ot outs , you can make It good enough , so good that It will buy 100 bushels of oats. ( A volco : "We don't want that kind of a dollar. " ) If anybody hero had been raising farm produce und complaining becausH they nro not cheap enough , you can make thorn cheaper If you vote the republican ticket this full. CROWD ASKED VOIl MORE. nALTIMOIlG. Sept. 19. W. J. Hryan apoko hero tonight to two of the largest crowds ever present at a political meeting In this city. The first speech was made In the open air , and conservative estimates place thn number who heard It at 30,000. The second was held In Music ball , the larg est auditorium ID Baltimore , and the house- was parked until women fa In ted and many hnd to bo removed before the speaking could proceed. This arose from , the fact that the local committee had Issued tickets to the number of almost 15,000 , when the capacity of thu hall la scant 3,500 , Mr. Ilryan reached here In a special car from Wash lug- ton ut 7:45 : p. m , and , was driven to a tem porary platform erected three squares away In the plaza on Mount Royal avenue. In fron * of the station of the Baltimore & Ohio rail way.

Just ns he barn ] his head In acknowledgment of the greeting a slight rain began tei fall , which incicased to a brisk slio oi us he proceeded. Ills voice was not cli'ar , the > strain of the past few days having evidently told upon j it. Palo of face , with great be-ads ot per spiration standing upon his forehead , Mr. I Ilryan created the Impression of a man who had tested his powers of endurance to their fullest capacity. Ilia speeches were mainly a repetition of those he has made during hU tour through the south , and were fro- qucntly interrupted by demands from the audience for "something about McKlnley" anil other subjects. Ills first addrcsc lasted barely twenty minutes , after which ho re- pal ! cd to the music hall , whither as many of the crowd as could get In followed him. He was accompanied In the rain and es corted to the platform by a committee of which Senator Gorman was n member. Conj - j grcssman H. W. Rusk , chairman of the dem ocratic committee , Introduced him. At the conclusion of his speech at Music hall Mr. Hryan returned to Washington on the 11 o'clock train over the Ualtlniorc & Ohio railway , although ho had previously announce : ! his Intention of remaining here until Monday , and rooms had been engaged for him at the Carrolton. nUXV THAT THKY Will !

X KS MOINES. Sept. 19. ( Special Tele- gram. ) There Is trouble ahead between the silver and national democrats lu this stato. Secretary Carr and Chairman Curry an nounced today that under Instructions from national headquarters at Chicago they will take steps to prevent thu use of the nnino "national democratic" to describe the sound money ticket. It Is announced from na tional headquarters that the same light will he made all along the line , on the ground that the use of the name "national demo cratic" by the sound money people on the Australian ballot would coufuso voters. The silver democratic slate committee has al ready engaged counsel nnd will make Iho light in Iowa. This committee bclluveis there is a good chance to keep the ticket from going on the ballot at all. Tlu > convention was held under the name of the national democratic convention and It Is contended that If thla name Is not accepted It cau- nnt be changed without holding another convention. On the other hand. Chairman Mullln of the sound money democratic committee holds that the convention does not deter mine the matter because the ballot will not go on the tlc'cet by virtue of the conven tion , but by reason of the petition that must bo filed. IIo says If the secretary of state refuses to accept the ticket uniler one name another will bo adopted. The sound money mon have sent out petitions for signatures to secure the BOO names nece > ssary to pin tholr ticket on the ballot. It is proposed to secure a strong petition of representative democrats of the statn with from C.OOO to 10,000 names and moro If possible In tha limited tlmo Tlio names of Hie nominees must be filed with the pe.tltion not later than thirty days before the election. \VA.\T TO IMIOSKCDTIi THU IIOAHI ) . liiiioiriitle * e'o in in I HIMIn Iowa Ar- rniiKliitf a Iiual Contest.
