(Special Tele grams Love's opera house was crowded to the topmost row of gallery seats tonight to listen to the fourth and last of the series of debates between Meiers. Rosewater anil Hitchcock. The house seats 1.100 ami there were during the greater pert of the meet- , Ins several hundred standing. Mr. Ros- water was Introduced by John C. Wharton J of Omaha, who presided In his behalf and Hon. George L. Loomls of this city, did ( similar service for Mr. Hitchcock. Ac companylng Mr. Rosewater also were National Committeeman R. D. Schneider. H. Blumenthal. Theodore Mayer and aj number of other local republicans. Ac- . companylni? Mr. Hitchcock were Messrs. j James Mlliken. Judge Hollcnbeck, Judge j Wlntersteen and Chairman Wallace WIN . son of the democratic county central com- , mlttee. Taken altogether the debate was less ! spirited than any of the former encounters. There waa less cheering and fewer in terruptions. There was not at any time such a manifest desire upon the part of the rival partisans In the audience to help j out their respective champions. Mr Hitch- ! cock was far less demonstrative and vehe- j ment than upon any previous occasion. There j was not at any time any cause for ap prehension as there has bven in former de- j bates that ha was about to land a left hand Jab on his opponent's nose or a i round arm swings on tho ribs. But. although I less active in his offensive tactics, Mr. ! Hitchcock was none the less agile In dodging the questions propounded by his opponent. Klaar and the Conatltntlun. Mr. Rosewater in his opening twent minutes called attention to the dramatic and spectaculnr exhibition given at Kan sas City" on the Fourth of July last, which ho said was designed for emotional and sensational effect rather than as an appeal to reason. He referred to the motto on the flags suspended dramatically In the convention hall upon which was Inscribed tho legend, "The flag and the constitu tion, one and Inseparable, now and for ever." saying that It sounded very beauti ful, but was ridiculously untrue. The flag floats over every American embassy, in every foreign country, but the constitution does not go there with it. The flag has floated over China, but tho constitution did not follow it. It was all campaign claptrap. as were Bryan's dlro prophecies of 1S96, and the speaker gave warning that tho audience would seo it all re-enacted by Bryan's disciple, who would follow him. In tho midst of Mr. Rosewater's remarks the electric lights went out. catching htm in tho middle of a sentence, the conclusion of which was drowned. In the cheers of the crowd. It was but a few seconds ere -the lights were again turned on and Mr. Rose water resumed, declaring that the entire stock In trade of Bryan and his advocates Is delusion and charlatanism upon every material Issue of the campaign. He re counted tho exploded theories advanced by nryan In ISM, pointing out with telling force that evoked applause the prevailing conditions that disprove them. Ob the Money Qnratlon. Taking up tho money question as the leading issue of the campaign Mr. Rose water demanded that his opponent explain whether or not ho believed in the free and unlimited coinage of the world's supply of silver by this country at the ratio ot 16 to 1. Ho recounted the experiences of the days of wildcat money. Issued by municipalities and banks, exhibiting a lot of old bills of that character, which now have no value, saying that this la the sort ot money now favored by the democrats. The republican financial system has given this nation tho best money and the Iwr. credit of any country In the world. The financial sys tem of the democracy, for which they de clared at Kansas Pity, was repudiated by the people In 1S91. Ha declared his disbelief In the quantltlve theory of money, and showed how easy It would be if It were true for the government to Issue unlimited bonds and buy up gold, thereby multiply ing tho wealth of the republic, or, more easily. It could keep turning out Its paper and distributing it through the malls until every citizen was worth. $100,000, Mr. Rosewater declared that militarism is as much a myth as the dire conditions predicted by Bryan In 1S96. Keep Anny from Money, When Mr. Hitchcock responded he did not enlighten his audience upon the ques tions propounded to him concerning bis belief In freo coinage, but he accepted Mr. Rosewater's reference to militarism as his excuse for plunging at once Into his well worn dlscusslou of that topic, which he professed to believe tho most vital Issue. All of his former utterances regarding the cocsent of the governed were repeated with slight variation. He declared that the ad ministration was governing tha S.000,000 Filipinos by force and reached Anally the old conclusion that government by farce Is despotism. All the attention he could devote to the money question was to ihv clare that the republican party, instead of carrying out its promise ot Interna tional bimetallism, or ot even adopting the old standard, had, without any expression from the people on the subject, passed a law giving the banks a monopoly on the Issue of paper money, against which sort of money Mr, Rosewater had Just entered complaint. Mr. Rosewater continued his discussion of the money question, denying the as serted bestowal ot a paper monopoly upon tan banks and reiterating that the admin istration had established for the nation the best credit In the world and a money that Is worth 100 cents on the dollar to the laboring man who receive It. Although Mr. Hitchcock had not answered his former qusetlon, he would ask another He de manded to know whether the latter be lieved that a conspiracy existed In 1ST!

Nothing has yet been definitely decided upon as to the details of Mr. Kruger's stay In Europe But Mr. Kruger Is an old man and not accustomed to a cold climate, so it Is UVely he will sojourn In the neigh borhood of Nice for the winter. I have no reason to believe there Is any ground for the statement that Mr. Kruger Intends to visit President McKlr.Iey " MARSEILLES. Oct. 24.

Although the present trouble Is on account ot a refusal on the part of the mill management to recognize the union In the matter of a de mand for more pay tor the men working on the construction of a new mill, the difficulty has all tha appearance of assum ing the old phase ot racial antagonism, fuel being added to the flames by the pres ence ot the British redcoats from Montreal.

But It Is idle to hope for help from Mr. Hitchcock.

NOT OCITE READY TO BITE Powers Show Heluctance to Accept Anglo German Agreement. UNITED STATES NOT ALONE IN ITS STAND L'ntlt There Is n Fuller lndertnnd Inv of the Meanluar of Third Clanse There Will He o More Assents Forthcoming. WASHINGTON. Oct. 26. In diplomatic quarters there Is felt to be some sig nificance in the fact that France, Russia and Japnn, as well as the United States, have not yet accepted the invitation to accept the principles ot tho Anglo-German alliance. It 1b understood that this non action of the powers Is not duo to any concerted movement among them, although each appears to be halting on the third clause. A diplomatic official said today that on mature consideration of this third clause it was seen to Involve two construc tions, first, that If any power took terri tory In China as a result of the present trouble then Germany and Great Britain would also take territory; or. second. It any country took territory In China, Ger many and Great Britain would seek to pre vent this action or otherwise jointly act against the country seeking to extend Its domains. Either construction, It was pointed out, was such that the powers not party to the agreement could not be ex pected to bind themselves to Its accept ance. Under these circumstances It Is said the powers would probably seek to learn Russia's views on the third clause. as Russian approval would probably remove the Idea- that there Is any possible menace Intended. But it Is recognized, omong diplomatic officials, that it would be dim cult to secure an expression from Russia on this point, as an unfavorable rejoinder, which she might be expected to give, would amount to a declaration that she had some territorial designs on Manchuria and a re fusal to answer would be similarly open to such construction. The Impression is growing among the representatives of theso powers, that the present action will con tinue for some time, and that the agree ment will be confined to Great Britain and Germany, at least until there Is a fuller understanding ot the third clause than thus far given. MINISTERS, NOT SATISFIED Imperial Decree Ordering Punishment of Leader -Not Explicit EnooBh. PARIS, Oct, 26. According to a dispatch from Pekln, dated October 24, to the Havas agency, Prince Chlng and LI Hung Chang have communicated to the legations the Imperial dpcree In accordance with which the princes and ministers responsible for the recent trouble In China are to be pun ished, according to their respective de grees of culpability. The emperor recognizes the fact that General Tung Fuh Slang has committed serious offenses, and he charges Prince Chlng and LI Hung Chang to fix the penal ties to be imposed on those for whom the Europesns demand punishment. The decree states that Chinese plenipo tentiaries have already inflicted punish ment upon some princes. These plenipo tentiaries assure the emperor of the death of Kang Yl. Prince Tuaa and Prince Tchouang are not with the court. These communications are not satisfac tory to the legations.

PATERSON. N. jToct." 26. The revela tions made In connection with the murder of Jennie Bosschleter continued to cause the greatest Indignation Jn thta city and arrangements aro to be made tor a monster mass meeting to express indignation and demand immediate Justice. Troublo Is feared tomorrow night when a political mass meeting will be held at Celt's hall. The hall adjoins the Jail In which the prisoners are confined. Even the most conservative citizens de clared tonight that such li meeting cannot take place close to tho Jail without some demonstration of tho popular feeling over the case. The authorities are considering the advisability of swearing in special deputies to protect the Jail. It Is hinted that the prisoners may be removed. The movement for the nais meeting Is being engineered by President Arthur W. Bishop ot the local branch of the Society for the Suppression of Vice. Mr. Bishop declares that the condition In Paterson Is awful; that the young girls ot the mills ore considered the legitimate prey of liber tines; that cases similar to the Jennie Bosschleter are of nightly occurrence and that the grand Jury Is utterly rotten and prevents the punishment ot those with "In fluence." "In my opinion nothing will be done with the men now in Jail." said Mr. Bishop today. "I do not believe the accused will even be Indicted tor murder." Prosecutor Emley said today that he had decided to lay the case against McAllister, Kerr, Campbell and Death before the grand Jury next week. It Is said by the prose cutor that the four men will be promptly Indicted by the grand jury, aa in addition to the evidence ot the cab driver. Schul tborpe, he says be has secured much other evidence going to prove the guilt of the prisoners. Prosecutor Emley scouts the idea that any influence can be brought to bear to postpone the consideration of the case of the four men. Tho prisoners will be brought to trial, ho says.

Paymaster Gen eral Bates reports to the secretary of war that during tho year ending June 30, 1900, he has paid to the army, regular and vol unteers, J36.C36.C00; on the emergency fund "to disband the Cuban army," $1,642,630. Several minor recommendations concerning the pay of the army are contained In this report. A comparison of the expenditures of the last fiscal year with those of the fiscal yrar of 1S99 shows a net decrease of $33. 3S2.147. The mileage provisions under the act of May last have applied satisfactorily to the army, rjth the single exception of what are knovli as "agreement road" de ductions. The' expense, time and labor Involved in the multiplicity of time and distance tables required under the ever changing conditions of the railroads mak ing these deductions is found to offset ccmpletely any saving to the government through their use In the transportation ot troops and supplies. General Bates there fore recoumends that this clause be stricken out of the mileage provisions. The paymaster general calls particular attention to the 10 and 20 per cent extra pay allowance provided by congress for the troops serving In the Island possessions and Alaska, which unfortunntely deprives the troops serving in China from a share of this bonus, the disturbances in the Chi nese empire not having assumed a threat ening aspect when this law was passed in the latter part of May. He recommends that this extra allowance be extended to officers and men serving In all countries beyond the limits of the United States proper and that tho time of this foreign service shall be computed from Muy 26, 1900, the day the act became a law.

"Cap" Carder, the man who claims ha was paid J4S0 to make the ward go re publican. Is a disappointed office seeker who left the party several ears ago when it refused to support him. On the first reg istration day this year 116 of the 165 regis tering in Bryan's ward expressed republican affiliation, which is Indisputable evidence that. padding is unnecessary.

SMYTH SCENTS AN OCTOPUS Discovers the Animal Eight Under the Note of Mr, Bryan, PROPOSES TO SMASH A LINCOLN FACTORY Cracker Ilnkery Fall Under the 1)1 plensure of the Truat Annlhllntor and a !nlt to Kxtermlnnte It Folio ITS. LINCOLN. Oct. 26. (Special Telegram.) Attorney General Smyth today began pro ceedings under the Nebraska anti-trust law against The National Bulscuit compauy-of New Jersey, the American Biscuit Manufac turing company of Illinois and the Jones Douglas Cracker company ot this city. He alleges that the three companies have formed an Illegal combination tor the pur pose ot restricting trade and regulating the prices of their products. It Is claimed that the Lincoln firm entered the agreement In 1S90. The attorney general asks the court to adjudge both the American and National concerns trusts and exclude them from doing business In the state, also that the transfer of the Jones-Douglas property be declared void. Tho local cracker factory employs about fifty persons and has been operated by C. I. Jones and F. H, Douglas for more than fifteen years. Mr. Jones Is a promi nent republican and for several weeks has kept a large McKlnley picture displayed In a front window In his home directly oppo site the Bryan residence on D street, greatly angering tusionists and friends of the dem ocratic leader. The picture is one ot the largest In the city and being directly oppo site the Bryan home attracts the attention of all visitors. The fact that an Omaha cracker factory which la said to bear the same relation to the National concerns as does the Lincoln factory, was not named as a defendant, has given rise to the belief that the attorney general waa actuated by political motives In beginning the suit. CHEERS FOR REPUBLICANS Demonstration la Given at TJaaOniza .- Rally, by the Immenae.CruTfd Present. HASTINGS, Neb., Oct. 26. (Special Tele gram.) Amid the blare of trumpets, the beat of drums, the popping of fireworks and the blazing ot red and green Sre, hun dreds of people paraded the streets tonight, cheering various republican candidates. Regardless ot the threatening weather the republican rally was a fine demonstration of republican enthusiasm. Attorney James Introduced Mr. V. S. Morlan to a large au dience In the Kerr opera house. Mr. Morlan asked his heurers to take Bryan's speeches made In 1S96 and compare them with what he Is saying today and note haw he changes bis tune. He then began to explain the necessity of the republicans of electing the legislative ticket this year, as there were two United States senators to be elected, and for the good of Hastings and the people of Nebraska these senators must be republicans. He also spoke a word for himself by saying that it was equally aa Important that the republican candidates for congress should be elected for the same good reasons. The speaker said that there were times whan everybody should stand by the couatry by standing by the administration, and If there were any differences about the war they would be settled after the election. He compared the democratic and republican parties and showed the necessity of supporting tho re publican ticket from top to bottom at the coming election. Mr. Marian then read a clipping of Bryan's speech wherein be said In Virginia, in answer to a question about 16 to 1, that tt was the paramount Issue in 1896, hut on account of the many obstacles the republicans bad brought forth that It was no linger the paramount Issue. This the speakei explained was the slippery way Bryan and his followers had ot dodging the issue. Mr Morlan then gave a brief history of the United States, telling how this country bad acquired territory from time to time as occasion demanded it, and aa fate had put the Philippines under the care of Uncle Sara It was the duty of Americans to see to It that these Islands were protected under the safeguard of the American army until such time as they could properly take care of themselves. He closed by saying If Agulnaldo were a second George Wash ington why did not he free his people from the Spanish rule In place of selling out for 1400.000. Hon. W. E. Andrews was introduced and closed the meeting with one of the best campaign speeches delivered here this year. COMES ON SPECIAL TRAIN l!x-Conan!

DETECT ALV0RD BY ACCIDENT Cnanal Observation of Eraanre on III Clearing Ilunae Mieet Ilrinic Teller' Guilt to Light. NEW YORK. Oct. 26. In order to mako clear certain alleged misstatements Vice President Hlne of the First National bank today explained in detail some of the in cidents leading up to the discovery of Alvord's crime. In the first place, Mr. Hlne said. Alvord had worked steadily and without suspicion until the afternoon of the lfctb. Inst. By the merest accident a clerk saw him make certain erasures la the clearing house sheet and while he thought this unusual said nothing about It to any body until shortly nfter 4 o'clock. By that time Alvord had gone, but It was ex pected that he would return, as he had some work to finish. When Alvord failed to return the clerk who had seen him make the erasures made casual mention ot the matter to Assistant Cashier Backus. The latter, without sus pecting that any thing was wrong, looked over Alvord's balance and soon found sev eral discrepancies. He was on the point of leavtng matters for Alvord's adjust ment when he decided to make a further examination and soon found that many items had been deliberately falsified. By this time the suspicions of the assistant cashier had become very much aroused. All the high officials of the bank had gone for the day, but gathering a number of clerks Mr. Backus went hurriedly over the note teller's books and in a few moments had overwhelming proof of Alvord's guilt. Mr. Hlne did not say how Alvord learned that he was under suspicion, but he con firmed the report that the note teller re turned to the bank early on Thursday even ing and, seeing others at work upon his books, realized that be bad been discov ered. Alvord had not been under surveillance up to that time, although It was said he was suspected as early as the 16th Inst, The Bank officials are convinced that he did not go to his home the night of the ISth and they are also convinced that he has not been there since the morning of that date. Alvord's crime came to light exactly three days after the national bank examiners completed their examination. While the First National bank officials ad mit Alvord's wrong-doing is in no degree tho result of any laxity on the part ot the examiners, yet they seem somewhat annoyed at what they regard as misrepre sentations on the part ot those attached to the office ot the comptroller at the cur rency at Washington.
