Colonel Rocmer tells a story full of

escapade from tho Spanish who encir
cled the coast of Cuba, a desperate
voyage of 200 miles on the open sea in
a 10-foot boat, finally landing at Nas
sau, In tho Bahama Islands, whence
they went to New York on the Word
lino steamer Santiago. From a solid
weight of 250 pounds, Roemer has
fallen to less than 150 as the result of
Cuban chills and fever.
'Wo started from Rcmadl09,ln

AsTOiA,Or., Aug. 28. John Svcn
son, a fisherman, was found dead at

In his breast. At first it was thought
Svcnson committed suicide, but Coro

Instead. Suvonson was tho keeper of

of tho reward offered by tho county

off. Judge Gray Is now absent from

Buffalo, N. Y., Aug. 28. Ap
parently tho cutlro population of
Buffalo,tho homo of GroyorClovclantl,
turned its footsteps toward Music
hnll,whorc Candidate Bryan addressed
4,000 people as many as could bo
packed within tho four walls whllo
crowds filled tho neighboring streets.
The day In Buffalo had been the
greatest ovation Mr. Brynn has re
ceived "In tho enemy's country,1' and
tho night meeting which ended It at
tracted almost if not quite as mirny
would-be auditors as tho notification
In Madison Square garden.
When Mr. Bryan appeared upon tho
stngo escorted by State Committee
man John C. Shcchan, the police wero
powerless to control the audience.
Mr. Bryan said In part:
'I cannot express to you the grati
tude which I feel when I sco the
Interest the people of tho Empire
state aro taking in this campaign.
I can carry back to tho pcoplo of tho
west tho news that tho Chicago plat
form Is supported not by tho west and
south alone, but by all tho tolling
millions of tho cast as well.
Thoro Is no other rulo known except
tho rulo of a majority or tho rulo of a
minority, unci it Is better for a minor
ity to bo alienated than tho voice of a
majority to bo suppressed. You can
support those who stand upon tho
Chicago platform, nlthougli you may
dissent from parts of It. But I stand
upon the Chicago platform becauso I
believe in it from beginning to end,
every word.
"A platform covers a great many
questions, necessarily, because there
Is no tlmo when thcro is but una sub
ject, cut, while thoro aro various
planks and various policies, thoro
must bo ono supremo one, and In
this campaign thcro Is u supremo
issue. Tho Issue is made between
thoso who believe In u gold standard
nnd thoso who opposo n gold standard.
Thcro Is no mtddlo ground. Those
who nro not with us aro against us.
Thero Is no placo between tho lines
for pcoplo to stand. (Applauso.)
"Our opponents tell us thoy will try
tosccuroan international agreement,
nnd that thoy simply want to main
tain n gold standard until our nations
will help us to let go of It. Can you
trust people who wrote tho pltform to
restore bimetallism? Never, until
you enn wipe out tho Scriptures, and
gather figs from thistles and grapes
from thorns.-Thoso wlioaro responsible
for tho gold standard aro not tho ones
to whom wo look for deliverance. Ah
well might you have nsked Pharaoh
to lead tho children of Israel out of
bondage ns to ask the Republican
party to break tho shackles of a gold
standard. Tho Democratic party is
opposed to a gold standard not only
opposed to it; it is unalterably op
posed to It. It Is so much opposed to
it that It will not permit tho Ameri
can pcoplo to bo bound by it, though
every nation on earth shall demand It
Wedld nofJachlovo Independence for
tho purpose of bowing to
tho yoke of any foreign power.
Thero aro people In this country who
had not studied tho money question
until the Chicago convention; persons
who supposed, of course, becauso they
had been reading tho Eastern news
papers,that the gold standard must bo
all right, but when they got to study
ing the question they found that the
arguments which support bimetallism
uro based upon the solid rock of truth,
nnd thoy have been comlngover to Hie
causo of bimetallism with a rapidity
never known beforo In tho history of
the United States. The arguments in
fnvorof bimetallism aro directed to
waul the Intellect of tho man who
thinks and to tho hearts of men who
feel. Tho gold-standard argument Is
directed to thepockctbookof tho man
who wants to 11 vo oil others. (Appla
use.) "When we dcolaro for Independent
ncttou we do not offend thoso who live
In other lands; wo do not appeal to any
feeling of hostility against thosowho
nro not citizens of tho United States.
Wo simply uphold the dignity of 70,
000,000 of people, to whoso euro alone
must be committed tho policies which
arc good for themselves. If somo man
living In a foreign laud should ask
his nation to surrender its power and
tho right of solf-govcrnmcnt, nnd In
vest its legislative power In tho Uni
ted States, what would wo think of
that man's patriotism? If wo would
dcsplso the foreigner who would at
tempt or desire to lot tho United
States control his nation, what con
tempt must lorelgncrs feel for thoso
Americans who nro willing to surren
der the right to govern themselves?
Our opponents tell us In their plat
form and tho only authorized way to
construe tho platform emphasizes tho
declaration that this nation cannot
undertake to open Its mints to silver
without tho aid of other nations. It
docs not say that wo uro not ablo to
do so for a month or for n year, or for
ono presidential term, and, according
to the statement, this nation will
never be able to do It until other na
tions Join us. (Applause.) That Is
the doctrlno that wo must continue
n gold standard, not for a few months
at for an Indefinite duration of tlmo
What is this thing that wo must en
dure. Ah, my friends, when this pco
plo at last turn their thoughts upon
tho gold standard; when thoy nt last
discuss It from all sides and under
stand Its principles and tho motives
that llo bolilud It, I huvo no doubt of
tholr verdict.
Congressman William Sulzcr, of
Now York, made tho closing speech.
Whllo ho was talking, Mr. Bryan was
escorted back to tho Gcnessco house,

and free coinage of gold nud silver In

In fact tho gold standard men nnd

would have declared In favor of tl:d
