I'.ryan's dodging policy Uuinj lLo presont campaign has brought down on li is Lead a shower of cmbarrasricg questions from time to tine. Almost every republican orator has attempted to pin him down, but he has skipped lightly away and given noserious or straight forward answers to the questions hurled at him. On bis return to New York the other clay after a campaigning tour, U. 8. Senator Frye decided to prepare a review of the salient issues of the campaign in the form of an open letter to Mr. Bryan, in which be said In part: "You have constantly criticised the course of he president in sup pressing the insurrection id the Phil ippines, yet yo.i know that the in surrection had been actually begun when the tieaty with Spain was rati fied by democratic votes which were cast for it by your advice, and that by that very act you aided in placing this responsibility on his shoulders. "You criticise the size of the army. Yet you know that conditions in the Philippines were critical, and the lives of our troops there in great danger when a temporary increase was asked by the president; and you lso know that the act, which wa9 supported by democrats and repub licans alike, is but a temporary one, and itself provides that the additions to the force shall terminate on July 1st of next year. "You talk of buying the Filipinos and of exteuding government over new territory without the consent of the governed, when you know that every foot of territory west of the Mississippi wns acquired by your own part' in precisely the same way and the people temporarily governed by precisely the same methods, and that the opportunities for local self government, which have been offered the Porto Kicans, are vasilj' better than were given the inhabitants of the Louisiana territoiy, Florida and the territory obtained from Mexico. "You talk about governing people without their consent, yet you know that your own patty is governing millions of people in the .Southern states without permitting them, a voice in their local or national gov ernment which the constitution and laws guarantee them; and when the matter is brought to your attention 3-ou have not one word of condemns tion for it, but meet the issue with evasion worthy only of the merest pettifogger." Senator htye then shows up the shallowness of Bryan's arguments on the Sulu treaty and has this to say: "You are constantly talking about the so-called trusts as contributors to the republican campaign fund, when you know that the sworn testi mony suVmitted to congress shows that the sugar trust was a heavy contributor to the democratic cam paign fund and that the chairman of your own national committee is the head of the most complete monopoly in the United States, the round cot ton bale tiust, while Mr. Croker and other leading democratic managers, ' who nie now supplying your party with runfls, cngariizeil the most op pressive ti list known to eople, the Tammany ice trust. "You su'd in M. Louis that under the trust system the traveling men will not l.o needed, yet yuu know that investigations by the department i,t lalior show th.it the so-called triuts have incretsed instead of de creased the r.i! timer of traveling men and other employes, and that they have incicaxtl and not reduced the wages c f their workingmeii or sales men; and you know from your con stant traveling on the railroads that (Lie number or traveling men now employed, in wLat you consider an era of trusts, is greater than ever lefore, and that this is shown by (ho .records of the tailways and their sales of the class of tickets used by traveling salesmen. "At Indianapolis you complained that a republican president could send a telegram of condolence when a king dies, but when two republics expire no republican sheds a tear, referring of course to the South Africal republics; yet you know that the United Mates government did more than any other nation on earth to bring about a cessation of hostili ties in South Africa; that it was the only government to tender its good offices as mediator, and that it was impossible, under articles of The Hague peace convention, for it to do more. The telegram of condo lence on the death of the Italian king, to which you sneeringly allude, requires no defense or explanation, as you must know that international courtesies of this kind are always observed, and that the failure to observe them would justly have sub jected this nation to criticism." Ilryan's assertion that so-called trusts have advance ! prices is denied by quotations from Bradsti eel's. THE OUTLOOK. -The Spokesman-Review has said that the surface indications point to the re election of Piesideut McKin ley. This will appear the more clearly upon consideration of- the electoral vote. The states of Ohio, New Yoik, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont arc reasonably counted in advance 'by the republicans. It would bo a sur prise if either of them went for Bryan. They have a combined electoral vote of 171, or 53 short of the required 224. Into a doubtful column place Cul ifornia, Delaware, Indiana, Kansas Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Min nesota, New Jersey, North Dakota Washington, West Virginia and Wis consin, with a combined electoral vote of 111. Of this number 03 would elect McKinley, and it would bo a political surprise if Bryan should carry a majority of these states. in other words, me chances seem against Bryan's breaking into the first column, and also against his carrying a majority of the votes in the second column. His one chance, as has been said before, lies in the possibility that the republican defee tion in republican sirongbouia may be greater than the republicans an ticipale, and may extend also into the doubtful states and states carried four years ago by Bryan, but now claimed by the republicans. John McDonald, a Kansas journal ist who is touiing Scotland, snja in a letter to one of the papers of the Sunflower state that he iccently went into a store in a little Highland town and inspected the goods displayed for 8ale, finding among them the fol lowing American products: Corn flour, canned beef, canned peaches, canned apricots, canned pcais, soap, rolled oats, washboards, churns, cheese, bams, flour, salmon, apples, forks, hoes, axes, hammers, saws, joiners' tools, braces and bits. "This partial list of things used in a Scotch mountain village," says Mr. McDon ald, "will give some idea of the im mense trade between the United States and Great Britain." QUESTIONS TO ANSWER Lincoln Man's Interesting Letter to Mr. Hiyan Sug;csts That He Be Practical Says He Has Xever Done Anythioj for Labor and Denies Prosperity When It is Evident. Senator Tillman he of the pitch ioik anci enoigun tor houtiiern ne groes who attempt to vote the republican ticket says that the dem ocratic senators were bribed to role for the ratification of the Paris treaty. As Biyan was busy lobby ing for the ratification of that instru ment, the charge suggests a host of speculations, says the Salem Stales-man. Three years ago this month the- Ne braska Statu Journal (cave spate in its editorial columns to a letter written bv J. W. Johnson, of Lincoln, to V. J. liryau. It was republished in the Ore guuiau, arwl a copy of it preserved by Annuel Dinieison, of this city. Tbe letter is full of meat, and was in part a follows : To W. J. Bryan Dear Sir : You are touring this state as a pretended friend of Nebraska and cf Nebraska people. If yon really desire the prosperity of Ne braska p-jople, why do you deny the prosperity that bus already come to them ? Why do you seek to take away the new hope that has come, and to turn back the tide of confidence which is rising in Ibe public niinj? Tho business energy of the people is awakened, and they are moving forward in all lines of industry. Why do you straddle yourself over the way and seek to turn the procession back? If you had been elected president instead of McKin by, and if uuiler your administration a general ttdvance iu farm prices and a lenewal of industry had set in, and these battered conditions bad been especially conspicuous in Ohio as they are today iu Nebraska, do yon think Mc Kiuley would today be chasing from town to town through the state tf Ohia trvina to ditconraee the people and organize them into opposition and dis trust? Can you consistently pose as a states man and a patriot while acting in the capacity of sn obstructionist, dogging the heels of industry like a bushwhacker who hanzs on the flank of an advancing army? In "The Pilgrim's Progrees," by John liunyan, there is a character whose mission was similar to yours. He would lurk by the wayeide where the pilgrims were passing on their' way from the City of Destruction, and, falling into conversation with tbem, would seek to turn them back. He would point out that just ahead was tho Slough or Despond, into whose mire they were likely to sink. Beyond this slough wss a mountain that was liable to fall upon them. Beyond the mountain was a hill of difficulty, and at the top was a narrow pass, where hungry lions waited to devour them. Beyond the lions was a roaring dragon, from whose belly poured out fire and smoke. . There was a ulant waiting at the uonth of bis cave, there was a dark valley where hobgoblins and evil spirits hissed and fluttered, and if any pilgrim, by dint of extraordinary courage, succeeded in escaping all these evils, still there was a deep, dark river at the very end ol the way which never could be crossed. Mr. Bryan, you pose as a friend of labor. Did any wordingman ever gut a dollar of your monev? Did you ever evolve a practical plan that gave any laboringman employment? Labor wants a practical friend, who can evolve a practical plan, and then put it into execution. Bncketaff thought of a brick yard. He carried the thought into action, and for many years gave employment to labor in making brick. . 1,-jok down O street, and you can see Bucketaff's brick, bat what have you done for this city? Where is your murk in this town? You, Mr. Bryan, have gathered in the last few months over 1100,000 from those whom you designate as the "down trodden and toiling masses," Not a dollar of this money has found Us way back into any poor man's pocket, and not a cent of it is risked in any labor employment industry. Ti.e result of yonr connection will) the down-trodden masses ls$l0J,000 out of their pockets into yours, but not a dollar ont of vours into theirs.

The anvils are ringing at Havelock, and the men in full force are working overtime: but yon deuy it. At Plat ts- mouth ami at Omaha tho labor pay-roll is double what it was a year ago; but you deny it. At McCook, where the pay-roll was $14,000 a month last year it is $28,000 now; but you deny it. At Nebraska City, where the Burlington's shipping business was $11,000 a month last year, It is now $3.!,000 a month ; bat you deny it. The railroad engineer whose monthly pay cheek was f73 a month last ) ear, is f 125 a month now; but you deny it. Yon stand on th track waving your danger signal, warning the engineer that the prosperity track aud the McKinley bridge are unsafe. When wheat wan 10 cent", you said it ought lo be SO. When it had advanced to 80 cents, you s.tid it ought to bo l. No one begrudges yon, Mr. Bryan , the fortune you have gathered in tho lat year; hut Nebraska people would be prouder of you if ha 1 made it in some legitimato enti rpria") that would have helced others as well as yourself. They would be obliged to you now if Obstinate would ttep aside and let the pilgrims pass. J. W. Johnson, Powers Will Probably Insist That Here after the Euidi ess Dowager Havei Nothing to Do With the Govern meni of tbe Chinese Empire. Washington, Nov. 1. It was itaUd , . . ,i 1 : L . : today in quariers wen verseu in iuujric affairs, that outside of the questions ol indemnity, punishments, etc., now under negotiations at Pekin, there are three vital and far-reaching questions to be determined, viz: First, the removal of the Empress Dowager, personally and through the in fluence of her advisers, from all partici pation of the Chinese government. Second, the creation of an indemnity fund by the increase of China's customs revenue, either by tbe payment of the duties in gold instead of depreciated silver, as at present, or else doubling the present silver duties from 5 per cent to 10 per cent ad valorem, and Third, the establishment of a minister of foreign affairs, In place of the old and cumbersome system of the Tsung li Yauiun. The demand for the retirement of the Empress Dowager is said to result from the conclusion now generally accepted that the imperial government of China was responsible for the Boxer uprising. As the Empress Dowager was the ruling authority of the imperial government daring the uprising, this responsibility is brought home directly to her. There is understood to be no puipose, however, to vieit upon her any personal punish' ment or indignity, but merely (o so form the reconstructed government as to ex clude! her from all participation iu it. It is deemed advisable for that reason that she should remain permanently away from Pekin, and that her advisers al should be kept awav from the seat of government. The plan of doubling China's customs duties has risen from the need of rinding a source to pay war indemnities, which the various powers demand. It appears however, that the increase of the dutieB has heretofore been brought to the at tention of the United States government by Li Hung Chang. This was during his vieit to Washington a few years ago when it was represented that the 5 per cent was fixed in 1858 by tho treaties with the United States and other countries, and was payablo in silver, at which time silver was worth almost as much as gold. But, with the changed value between silver and gold, Id Hung Chang pointed out that i;!nna s a per cent duty in silver actually netted onlv about 2'..' per cent, judged by tho pie fading gold standard. The matter was not pressed at that time. China a present customs revenue are eaid to be already pledged to meet tho interest snd principal of Chinese loans so that it will require some entitely new source to meet the indemnities. I:i case the enlarged dutiesnre determined upon, it is understood that their collection will be placed under the snnervision ot the powers, nt least until the indemnities are paid. any question about New lork, and it it evident that Maryland and Delaware will be carried by small pluralities. Bryan's two days in Chicago bave caused some uneasiness among repub licans as to the result in that city, be- i cause be lias met there, as be did iu the ; East, large and enthusiastic crowds, j At the same time it is believed that the j Bryan excitement will subside in thej two days between now and election, and j republicans are working every way to counteract the icfiuence of Bryan's visit. Indiana is considered the most doubtful j state, owing to the conflicting reports! and claims. At the same tune, the evidences point to its going for McKin ley. Some startling figures weie presented to Croker in New York last night, when a poll ly Tammany leader showed that Greater New York, including everything beluw the Bronx, was not likely to give Bryan more than '.'0,000. This is less than republicans have been claiming, but the tendency of the voters has been toward tho republicans. The republi cans do not fear landslides, roorbacks or any other form of political manipulation, and are coiifiifent of success Tuesday.

Mary Old field, accompanied by two frien Is, wasl returning from a Halloween party. where they had listened to. gruesome stories until their hair stood on end. When about to euter the woods a rattling of bones was heard overhead, and looking npthe trio were overcome with horror at seeing a skeleton of gigantic proportions sweeping down on them f ro n above.
