NEW YORK, Oct. 26 The Republican "National Committee issued a statement today concerning the United States Army i which says: "Reports received from the War De partment at "Washington by the Republi can National Committee give news of tha gradual reduction In the forces of occu pation in the Army. General Davis, com manding the army In Porto Rico, recom mends that the troops on that Island be withdrawn almost entirely Orders havo been issued .for the reduction of the troops in, China, and plans made for their, final withdrawal. It Is hoped that when the election is over the situation will Improve sufficiently in the Philippines to warrant a material reduction offorce there. "Secretary Root recently called atten tion to the fact that in the Pall of 189S, when -President McKinley recommended the retention of 100,000 men in the Army, he was arguing for a decrease and Tjot an increase, for then there were 272,006 men In service. The war with Spain was not ended, for the peace treaty had not been raunea. in the meantime, people should remember that unless there is further legislation on the subject tho Army will drop back to Its former limit of 27,500 men next July, which is only oncvthlrd of what it was in "proportion to the size of , the -country, so great has been, the growth In population."

Oct. 26 This city over flows with Republican, enthusiasm tonight on the occasion of the reception arranged for Governor Roosevelt. Beginning with the arrival at the Grand, Central Station on the minute of the schedule time, 5:30 o'clock, until along toward" midnight, when the Rousrh Rider -Governor went. tired and Weary, to" hte ''sister's hdme for the night, there was such a. series of re ceptions, auch a burningv of fireworks, such electrical displays and such volumes' of eloquence as are seldom seen In New York. It was the climax of the candi date's tour of many thousands of miles, 1 and his friends ''and admirers made- vh streets ring with their "shoutsof welcome home. The doors of. "Madison Square Garden were opened f:dV.thje public at, 5 o'clock. The big amphiteater was syrrounded ''by policemen dravn up in a single file 'on the -curb, while inside thV building were jscores of bluecoats Outside the Garden, waiting for the opening of the-doors, was an orderly crowd. There was no rushing or confusion. Inside Were two regimental bands, one at each end of the- Garden. They continuously played, alternating during the three hours' wait Popular airs were played mosilj-; and were loudly cheered. Frequently campaign songsvwere sung by three quartettes. The decorations were nrofuso. the Stars and Stripes predominating1 .The speakers., stand was draped with bunting and di rectly beneath. th,e front jail, was the codt of arms of the state. Serving a double purpose of a decoration and a1 sounding-board were huge spots of yellow ) and white bunting, which . completely covered the iron girders. In every seat was a small American Sag to which was fastened a button of Governor Roosevelt In his Rouh Rider uniform. Most of the seats- were occupied by appointment-. The groups of paraders began u reach J-the 0q;fta-eeaa.fter ;$.. jO'eleck an4 , as suui, coiuusenib. arriveu mere Tsniore cheering and we're, burnlbg of Greek fire 'aMff'TfipVB PHcrMa itttda mma HHln v ipldehfs caused try an anxious crowdrush-' 'lher from nn ntrnnflntl Tn nnntli Virlf nothing serious was reported In this- line. Every invention In the pyrotechntcal line was utilized and some of the displays took the crowd by storm. Great set pictures of the "full dinner pail" and representations of President MoKinley and Governor Roosevelt .were cheered vigorously. The Democratic mutoscope on theBartholdl Hoel was at work all the time throwing mottoes on the Dewey Arch, on the -clouds and on. the walls of .the buildings around, the square, but the Republicans ignored' it Another feature was the playing1 of tinany, bands in unison, directed by a. searcnugnt, ana tne vast cnorus singings One thousand policemen were on duty about Madison Square and in the Garden. They kept the crowd under perfect con trol on the outside. A way was kept open frpm tho hotel up Fifth avenue to TVenty-sixth street. The people were kept back to the curb. The Governor's Arrival. Governor Roosevelt came out of the ho tel" at 7:50 o'clock and -got Into his car riage. He was recognized at once and until he got Into the Garden, and for minutes afterward he was cheered and cheered. Hestood nearly Jill the wayj to the Garden and bowed to this crowd. The Governor reached Madison Square Garden at 7-58 o'clock. The cheering out side made this fact known to, those within and there were expectant cries of "Here he comes. The audience stood waving flags arid cheering when the Governor ap peared. There was a great tumult. Bands, were playing hard to make their music heard, but except to those immediately alongside they might have kept silent. The party went to the speaker's stand. The Governor was followed by Senator Piatt. When the Governor got to his place on the front of the stand, the ap plause was deafening. General FrancU V. Greene, the chair man, tried to get order, out the crowd cheered he louder. The Governor stood quietly beside the chairman. The ap plause lasted nine minutes. General. Greene Introduced the Governor as the" strong advocate of the Administration's policy in the Philippines. Another ovation followed as the Gov ernor raised his, hand to command atten tion. He began his address with the words: "My fellowf Americans." He re ferred to Mr. Bryan's visit to the state and the reception prepared by Tammany Hall and the audience groaned and hissed. "Good for you, Teddy; soak it to 'em' yelled a man high up. Many like ex pressions came from other parts of the Garden. His reference to Mr. Croker's famous remark about "working for his own pocket all the time," brought forth the cry: "You're all right, Teddy." Governor Roosevelt ridiculed Mr. Bry an's attitude on every public question. "Sail into .him-; give him the mischief," roared a man. The audience kept up an incessant cheering. Tho famous base ball crank, who is known as "Vell, Well,"' had a seat upstairs and of course her was much in evidence. When the Governor took up militarism he caused much laughter when he told of the "danger of 86-100 of a man to every 1000 of our population." Roosevelt's Speech. Governor Roosevelt began his address by saying hevwas proud to be. on the platform with Secretary Falrchild, for he said: t it - "Wherever I have been in, this cam paign I have had with me man after man who, though a life-long Democrat, de clined, to serve his party when that party fell under the leadership that was'.false to all earlier tradition of the -.party;., when the party fell under leadership that sought, to lead itlntd Jthet,path of .

And the valiant lray naturally dome with us when we stand 'for the honesty of our people against the degradation of the flag abroad.'' On the subject' of Mr. Bryan and Mr. Croker, the -.Governor said: "Mr. Bryan comes to this state as the guest of Mr." Croker. Mr. Bryan comes to, this state pleaolngjoyaltyto the mem ory of Jefferson and associating with Mr. Cr oker. Jefferson's .statement .was that therwhole,art of government consIstedin being honest.

He then touched pn. the present prosperity of thejeouritry and how Mr, Bryan's prophe cies regarding the gold standard had turned out to be wrong and condemning him for ralsinsr a f eellnsr of envy In the 'minds of-vthe ..working" clgss against the capitalists, un tmsjKunt, ne saici: "Nfc greater evil, Imy fellow-countrymen, can be done In. this Nation of ours than 'to teach amy group of Americans that their attitude should be one of ""sul len hatred and dlstrustto their fellows.

The Ghost ot Imperialism. On.lmperlallsm. the Governor said: "Our opponents talk of "the dangers of imperialism. There is but. one danger to free Institutions in this country, and that would be by the general prevalence of a doctrine, the seeds Tf which Mr. Bryan has been sowing. Only in that way will there ever be a chanceof losing the lib erty that we have inherited from those who went before us. And now Mr. Bryan asks us to give up prosperity, he asks ua to give up our orderly liberty under the law 'tot the sake of the most shadowy "ghost that" ever was raised to frighten Apolitical children the ghost of imperial- "Here In this building, a week ago, Mr; Bryan repeated what ha either knows, or ought to know,to'be an absolute islander when he said that our Httle Army had been created with the purpose of putting it in forts to overawe workingmen of our great cities.

The Governor then referred to the atti tude of the soldier in the Spanish War, eulogizing the volunteer as he has rnany times. After appealing to "the audience to support the Republican policy, Gov ernor Roosevelt concluded by introducing ex-Senator, Falrchild in the following words: "It is not alone Republicans who deter mined that no man of Bryan'a character or representing the disorder which he stands for should be President of. the United States. Thousands of Democrats who believe In the maintenance of tha law, In order, in honesty, in finance aiyl In the Independence of the judiciary, will this1 year, vote for McKinley. For, how ever much they have differed from Re publicans in. the past or may differ from them in some issues now, yet they see their duty in the face of such a disaster as the election of Mr. Bryan, and they de slro to make his defeat so decisive that the menace to the business of 'the country Involved by Bryan's recurring candidacy may be forever removed. No one is bet ter qualified to stf eak for the sound money Democrats of this great financial center than the Secretary of the Treas ury In Mr. Cleveland's first Administra tion," Other Speakers.- An exodus from the 'Garden began with the close of the Governor's address The noise almost drowned Mr. Fairchllds voice. He could not be heard 50 feet dis tant. Partial order was secured, and ho finished with little applause, except at the close. A lot of young men from the College of the City of Now York at this point Insisted on calling for 'three cheers for Roosevelt, and the cheers were given with much enthusiasm. B.'B. Odell, Jr candidate for Governor of New York, followed Mr. Falrchild, ac cusing Mr, "Bryan of concealing the ma n issub of the campaign the financial ques- tion behind expansion, imperialism, mil itarism and trusts. Ex-Governor Frank S. Black, the next speaker, attacked the record of tha Demo cratic party regarding the colored race, and said that the hands that had degrad ed'the .Nation were now seeking to-nulll'y the Cdnstltution to protect the Filipino savage. Governor Black was followed by Sen ator "W. P. Frye, of Maine, His text was 'The Spanish Teaty and Its Results." The last address of the evening was de livered by John K. Richards, Solicltor-t General of the United States." A New Audience Came In. Mr. Richards was interrupted by a club of 500 Rough Riders, who marched In with a band at their head and bringing with them, a big crowd from the street, all yelling for "Teddy." The Governor was still on the platfona ,and at .last arose and, stepped to the stage. Ho held tup his hand for silence and In Jess than a minute a pin might have been heard to drop. T ' j "Ladles and Gentlemen," he began, "the building seems to, be filled with a new1 audience. Fellow-Americans, I want io say to kyou ,that I am jgratifled.. it havejlnshed,. mjj. spegch.

F. W. 'Mulkey presided and in troduced the speaker of the evening. . "When a 'man who has followed one line of political thought all his life," said Mr. Colvfg, im opening, "who has been a loyal member of one party In wh,tch he has formed pleasant political associations, forsakes that party and sas, 'Here we part and go our,"separate political ways,' It is fitting that he should give hte reasons for the action. J did.not take the step in hope of political office, place, or power. Knowing Adlai Stevenson as a personal friend, and working with him in the cam paign ot 1872, had I sought office and en tertained any hope of the election of Bryan, I should have been a consummate fool to leave the Democratic ' party and support McKinley and Roosevelt. I ad vocate some principles thatj Republicans do not favor, but for those principles 1 am responsible only to the God that gov erns the destiny ot this country and of every individual here tonight. "Four years ago I favored "W. J. Bryan. He was a young man that flashed upon. tho people of the country like a meteor. He came from Illinois, the home of 'Abra ham Lincoln. People were not so well acquainted with him then as? now. "Mr.! Pierce, the Democratic candidate fpr Presidential Elector, came to me and said, Tm sorry you have flopped.' Now, 1 don't like the word 'flopped. I hold the same ideas as I ever held. "When the Democrats, Adlai Stevenson with them, In-lSW, were making a campaign on the ground that the war was a failure, though only 18 years old, I was not a Democrat then. I resolved never to ally myself with a party that declared a war this Nation carries on Is a failure, that favors taking down the American flag from any place where Amerlqan valor has carried it. I am not a Democrat of that kind." " 'But you set yourself up against the brains of the whole Democratic party,' said Mr. Pierce. " My brains .are my own,' I answered. There are Democrats who hate to leave their party, and I respect their opinions. But there are 80.000,000 people fn this country that do not want an lmperator for a ruler n6r an" Imperial Government. There Is no danger of imperialism. "Mr. Pierce then said, 'You will live to see the day, when your hair Is silvered with gray, when the liberties of the people are taken away by pirates, and we wilr have to bow our necks to the yoke of the 'opressor.' ' ' "I answered that he made me lose faith in the American people, - in American manhood," to think that even for a minute I such a direful state of affairs coma ex ist. "And I told him a story of two men riding in a railroad coach. One asked the other where he was going He an swered, "They are taking me to the in sane asylum. Foup years aso this free silver Issue sp'fangup. I -thought about it and studied about4t. I could notthlnfc of anything elseFfnally, my m!ndbroke down.

I couldn't' sleep nights. My mind Is giving awayv They are taking me to the asylum, toe' " 'Why that's aUvwrong ike Xree-sUver: man answered. "You ala't crazy.. You're simply a domed f ooL "Mr. Pierce asked me whether the story had-a personal application. 'No, I an swered; Mr. Pierce, I dont think, you are crazy.' "Mr. ,C. E-.S. "Wood says it la dishon esty or Ignorance tc- cite Thonuur Jeffer son for our present -course. "When was it dishonesty or Ignorance to cite Thomas Jefferson, in support of a Democratic doctrine? Thomas Jefferson, it is true, did notr-liveT in thiy age, "when we have lOO'-years of. expansion, back of ua. The United States was not such a gigantic proposition-as It is now. They did not have the same Ideas as we have now, But we find Thomas Jefferson doing the greatest Imperial act in. our history, with out .power, beyond the Constitution, and without consulting' the voice of thj. peo ple, when he consummated the Louisiana, purchase. They accuse McKinley ot forming' an alliance with England. But we find Jefferson threatening Frapce with an American alliance with England, and we also find the Federalists, the great grandfathers Of the RenubllcRTL 'nnjrtv. calling Jefferson an imperialist.

"In. this speech, Mr. Bryan quoted, from Jefferson's letter to Randolph, referring to the Louisiana purchase: 'The Constitution has made n,0 provision for our holding foreign territory, still less for incorporat ingsforelgn nations Into our Uniqn Here he stopped. t "Was he Intellectually honest when he suppressed what immediately follows? 'The Executives, in seizing the fugitive occurrence which so much ad vanced the good of their country, hae done an act beyond the Constitution. The Legislature in casting behind them meta physical subtleties and risking themselves like faithful, servants, must ratify and pay for it, and throw themselves on their country for doing then unauthorized what ,we know they would have tlone for them selves, had they been in a situation4 to do it . . ... Did Not Bay Filipinos. "But they say we bought tho people of the Philippines. -We didn't buy the people of the Philippines. We respected the land titles of the citizens of California. We didn't buy the people In Louisiana. Jef ferson was a practical statesman and a good man. He did not let his theoretical ,ideas interfere with his statesmanship All men are notv created free, and equal. When Jefferson penned the great words, 'life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness he grew weary and'put his pen down and flayed 50 negroes In order to make them do their work. . "The Democrats now have their hearts bleeding for the Filipino. They want the Golden Rule to govern, nations as wall as individuals. Nations are governed by nat ural law the laws of jGod and no matter what happens ,the laws of destiny sweep on, in spite of opposition. The Democrats pine for the woes ot the Filipinos. But in 1861 they did not pine for the woes of .human. slaves. Search history. The only instance oi applying tne uoicien .Kuie in government was the attempt of Wll.iam Penri in purchasing the land from the In. dlans. They bought six miles of land for about $13 and six bits and then spread over 'the whole state, and never bought another foot. "Look how the Indians have been treat edforced off the Continent. Such is the history of civilization. Look at the Mex ican "War. We pulled down the flag there, Bryan says, but not until we had taken New Mexico, Arizona, Texas and Califor nia. Look at the history of the Hawaii an Islands. When have we sought the consent of the governed? An Expansionist. "I am an. expansionist, and I cannot support Bryan because I am one. There are always mossbacks and croakers. In all our expansion history you find objec tions to every acquisition, who cannot get In line and keep up with the progress of civilization. If our Nation cannot gov ern equally well with any country on tho globe; if our flag cannot float as impe rially on these Islands as any nation on the sea, I am ashamed of being an Amer ican. Westward the progress of civiliza tion has gone with Increasing force It was intended that one race of people should govern. Blackstone says every one Is entitled to all the liberty he Is capjble of enjoying. Who are most capable of saying how much any people can enjoy? I say we are. We are the bravest-hearfed people on earth. We enjoy the most lib erty. We cannot look at tho past and be afraid of the Filipino. If we are, there Is a cowardly heart If we do. "President McKinley Is an American. He stands for an American policy. He fought for his country. And we Democrats who clamored ;for war In 1598 cannot in bener fqrsake him until the last incident of the war is closed.' 'Bryan forced the Issue of imperialism on, the country, by ratifying the Spanish trjeaty. and now makes po litical capital out of lr, after spend'n? $20,000,000 of the people's money to do It We can rule the Filipinos. We are the fittest to do it. And In justice to our soldiers, after our terrible sacrifice of money and treasure, we should do it.' TRANDED MINERS Five Hundred Return, Frqro Norneon Transport Lawton.

Thirty-three of the crew of the wrecked cable steamer Orizaba were also oa ths Lawton. They report that the steamer Is a complete wreck. The wreckage of the steamer was sold at public auction September 29. A detachment of 20 soldiers came down on the Lawton to preserve order amons the passengers in case of trouble.
