At 2 p. m. all began to crowd toward
Marlon Square.
It was a solid Bryan crowd fringed
about with an occasional pie eater.
"Mollle" was in evidence strongly
as ever at Bryan's rally. "Mollle" is
for Bryan.
That Bryan crowd Thursday night
and Friday afternoon never seemed
to wantito quit.
Tillman was gone. In spite or tele
grams sent out from Salem to that
effect, Friday's crowd at Salem was
"Free col uage,protcctlon aud the
election of Bryan go hand In hand,"
was one of U'Ren's hard hits on Fri
day. "As American citizens let us go in
for American politics," was one of
the texts talked upon Friday by Elder
The crowd was always ;t Bryan
crowd, a silver crowd, prepared to tear
goldbug arguments to pieces, -to hoot
at gold advocates and hurrah for the
white metal.
Those Intellectual giants of Mc
Klnleylsm, Dock Keene.MaJor Dunnl
way and General Idleman were close
listeners to Elder Barkley. Occasion
ally a sympathetic friend would come
up and shed a tear with them.
A lithograph of Bryan, the stars
and stripes, a crowded speakers'
stand, Judge"l)avldson, the capitalist
and farmer as chairman, enthusiastic
Itepubllcan, Democratic and People's
partyileaders, were all on the platform.

It was just like n circus day.
Farmers and family were In holiday
attire. They came to hear Tillman,
to do trading, to talk politics. At
times three hundred were gathered at
a street corner, listening to discus
sions on the money question.
"I want the mines open as well as
the mints. We want all these things
going together at the same time, so
we can have our big country full of
prosperous, Independent people,'.' was
one or Jiider Bariueys nits that was
applauded to the echo.
Elder Barkley's talk was "hot stuff"
from beginning to end. lie took up
thccolumnles of Ills enemies and re
futed them piecemeal, challenging
them to nieet him on. any stump in
this state with specific charges, as he
had no newspaper and could not
answer anonymous newspaper Bland

crowd a carriage, contanlng Elder
Barkley, the Bryan of Oregon, drove
up. He had cancelled an engage

The McKlnleyitcs 6eemed to think
the way to reach the masses of the
people best would be at the Bryan
meeting, so on the east side of every
tree in Marion square was a placard
announcing Hon. C. A. Boutelle, of
Maine, and Hon. M. C. George, of
Oregon, to speak at Salem on next
Friday. The Journal does not re
call an effort of the Bryanltes to ad
vertise their sneakers at a McKlnley
It was from 2 to4:aO that U'Ren
and Barkley talked. No two speakers
on a platform In Salem ever wot such
close attention as they did. The
crowd wenthome happy, wearingsmlles
from ear to ear, with only here and
there a long-faced solemn-looking
goldite who didn't seem U enjoy the
beautiful autumn day Just drawing
to Its golden close with asllver morn

The roll call of the backsliders al-y

tho gold standard wasjhuraorous and
sarcastic in tho extreme, and kept
tho crowd in a continuous uproar.

Editor Jeurnal: For Seveial days

great shortage of the wheat crop in
various countries. This ,1s done to
prove that short crops), and that only,
cause the advance in price. It is a
political trick that tho average Amer
ican citizen will not swallow. It
savors, too much of MarkiHiinualnm
to go down. If tiio great shortage
were known to bo a fact, wheat would
make a sudden advance tomcet the
discrepancy Instead of " advancing
halt a cent at a t line. If koueh short
age really existed, wbeat operators
are smart enough to know what the
ultimate effect would 04 upon tho
market, and their anxiety to get pos
session of the precious gram would
boom the price right up. vThat this
is not tho result is of itself proof that
this alleged news Is not bona tide.
These dispatches are without .a doubt
sent out at tho Instigation of the syn
dicates to convince voters that the
prospects of free silver have nothing
to do with tho rlso in the prlco of
wheat. Farmers, take this alleged
news with a grain of salt.

An Enjoyable Evening.,,
The open meeting given by the
Philodorhin society of' Willamette
university last evening, was a big suc
cess. While the program had a polit
ical ring about It, yet each number
was entirely or a humorous nature,
and received the just recognition at
the hands or the entertained, which
they merited.
Van Winkle opened tho evening's
program with a few remarks, in which
he extended a hearty welcome to all
present. The Mott brothers followed
with one of their campaign songs,
and the audience would only be con
tent when the young vocalists gave a
second selection. They favored the
audience later, on the program, with
a third selection, which was also
heartily applauded. The expctatlon
of the audience at this point, was at
its highest, since the next number
was: "A I'lea ror tuo single uoiu
Standard," by Bill McKlnley. It baa"
previously been announced that the
society had Imported Bill McKlnley
and the Boy Orator for the evening,
which naturally aroused the expecta
tion of the audience still higher. To
say that the greatest expectations were
fully realized would be but expressing
facts; when I. P. Calllson stepped
forth and advanced as sound an argu
ment in favor of the single gold stan
dard " can be made. Mr. Calllson j
became quite humorous and was ac-'
corded a hearty applause. Miss Marie
Campbell followed with a campaign
recitatlou It which the present un
fortunate pledicamentof tho"Modern
Sphinx" was pictured to perfection.
This young lady is a talented young
elocutionist and her selection was
greatly appreciated. Again tho ex
pectation of the audience was aroused
when the next number was announced
viz: "Shall We Have Free Silver?" by
tho Boy Orator. And they were not
disappointed either. Mr. 0. C. Miller
presented several humorouB sugges
tions us to what free silver meant and
was loudly upplauded. A social time
followed during which all heartily
participated In numerous games. It
was not until a luto hour that the
party disbanded, being unstinted In
their praise of the management.
Considering the short time in which
the participants had to prepare their
respective numbers the affair was a
decided success.
