Gradual Reduction la the Forces of
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withdrawn almost entirely Orders havo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."

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

such electrical displays and such volumes'
of eloquence as are seldom seen In New

date's tour of many thousands of miles, 1
and his friends ''and admirers made- vh
streets ring with their "shoutsof welcome
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.,

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

covered the iron girders. In every seat
was a small American Sag to which was
fastened a button of Governor Roosevelt

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

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

Governor Roosevelt then plunged, Into
the issues of the campaign; staTtiiMf "Ut
with rreo silver, and following the lines j
his many addresses 'on the subject. 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,

than 'to teach amy group of Americans
that their attitude should be one of ""sul

Republic eachman stands' on his rights

ceive Ms rights' .
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. Gentlemen,' there are 65.OC0
regular soldiers in tha United States.

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
"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

In the Independence of the judiciary, will

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

the menace to the business of 'the country

may be forever removed. No one is bet

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

the Cdnstltution to protect the Filipino
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

"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

it and studied about4t. I could notthlnfc

" ""Why said the second man, 'they're

are taking me to the asylum, toe'
" 'Why that's aUvwrong ike Xree-sUver:

"Mr. Pierce asked me whether the story

When Jefferson penned the great words,

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

"Look how the Indians have been treat

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

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

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
