"Most of the stories published on the
subject are Imaginary. Mr. Kruger will
land at Marseilles, and I shall go to
meet him. It Is not true that I have
eeen M. Delcasse, French minister of
Foreign, Affairs, or jthat I am in any way
arranging a reception, which will be en
tirely in the hands of the French them
selves. Nothing bas been definitely de
cided as to the details of Kroner's stay
In Europe. But Mr. Itruger is an old
man, and not accustomed to a cold cli
mate, so it is .likely he will sojourn In
the neighborhood of Nice lor the Win

any ground for the statement that Kru

SOUTH AFRICAN COMMAND
.-Speculation aa to Lord -Roberts! Suc
cessor. NEW YORK, Oct 26. A special to" the
Tribune from London says:
There is a play at cross purposes going
on at the War Office over the succession of
the supreme command of the army both in
England and South Africa. The announce
ment by that office that Dord Roberts
Itopes to leave Cape Town about .Novem
ber 15 Is not understood by military jnen
here, because December 1 is the date fixed
for the retirement of Lord Wolseley, and
the Interval Is too short to allow the two
gentlemen to exchange their work.
Moreover, there are no signs of cessation
of hostilities in South Africa, and the
presence of a commander possessing Xiord
Boborts authority and reputation eeems
to be indispensable.
The official notice is apparently pub
lished at the request of Lord Wolseley, as
an explanation of his retention of com
mand after the expiration of his term.
It is not believed in military circles that
Xord Roberts will return until Dewet and
Steyn have been captured and the cam
paign has been vround -up.
Speculation Is rife respecting the suc
cession to the command in South Africa.
Xord Kitchener is still the prime favorite,
but Generals Dyttleton and Hunter are
elso considered likely candidates for the
succession. Xord Roberts' reputation will1
be used without doubt as a screen'f or con
cealment of the ultimate policies of mili
tary reform here The West End ls di
vided into social and military cliques,
and practical reformers wIU' be compelled
to consider the lines of least possible re
sistance. Julian Ralph, who has left the service of
t"he Daily Mail, is Intending to deliver a
series of lectures on the South African
war as it appeared through ,'Yankee
glasses. He will probably follow "the ex
ample of Winston Churchill and open his
campaign in London at St James all.
Churchill ''has secured Lord Wolseley as
his chief patron and supporter. Ralph
nas received a promise from Rudyord
Kipling to perform the same function for
Kipling, Ralph and other writers who
provided copy for the first journal pub
lished by an army during a campaign,

No Kffect on Coal Market.
CHICAGO, Oct. 26. Prominent coal
dealers think that the settlement of the
big anthracite coal strike will have little
or np oepresaing eueci uu ujb yuvc i
coal in the local market The president
of one of the coal companies said:.
"The settlement of the coal strike will
have no appreciable jeffect I think, ex
cept to make those who have stocks more
willing to sell. "When the strike started
the price was $6 25, and It was advanced
to 57 chiefly for the purpose of holding
back the stocks until the mines resumed.
In the meantime the season has advanced
sufficiently and the cost of mining And
freights have been advanced so as to jus
tify the present price list It may go
back 25 cents, but I can't see how it can
fall below $6 35 at this season."
Rejoicing in Lockawanna Valley.
SCRANTON, Pa., Oct 26. There Tas
great rejoicing today all through Scran

calling off of the anthracite miners'
strike. The order has had the effect of
stimulating the companies which had ribt
already posted notices agreeing to ad
vance wages 10 per cent to do so, and
today the Pennsylvania Coal Company
sent out its official notice to Its miners at
Dunmpre, Avoca and Pittston. Dike ac
tion was also taken by the Moosic Moun

sand men and boys will therefore re
sume work Monday. Today the mining
companies had forces engaged getting the
mines in shape for resumption Monday.
At the mines all the sidings are filled

NEW YORK, Oct. 23 The cable dis
patch from St Thomas, D. W. X, stating
that much adverse feeling has been caused
there by the revival of the report that
Denmark intended to sell her islands to
the United StateB, caused much surprise
among Danes and Americans who claim
to be posted on public opinion there.
According to the dispatch, a meeting of
the Council has been convoked at St.
Croix for the purpose of making formal
protest against the sale. The press
throughout the islands, the dispatch went
on to say, protested against the proposed
sale, declaring "we do not desire to bo
Among those qualified to discuss the sit-'
uatlon in St Croix is A J. Blackwood,
American Consul in that place, chairmm
of the Colonial Council, and the most ex-j
tensive owner of planting interests there.
Mr. Blackwood is now staying at the
Pierrepont House, Brooklyn, vrlth his wife
and family. When seen there he said:
"Speaking not in my official capacity
as Consul, but as the chairman of the
Colonial Council, I say that the state
ment In the cable message Is untrue. Ever
since the publication last May of the story
of Captain Christmas, and Mr. Rogers' al
leged deal for the Standard Oil Company,
Interest In the sale of the islands has been
renewed among their inhabitants mort
than ever before. Only two months- ago
the inhabitants of St Croix held a mass
meeting petitioning the King for the sale
of the islands to the United States. Over
two-thirds of the planting interest of the"
island wasr represented on that petition.
'As a matter of self-protection we are
bound to wish to come under the Ameri

Quebec Shoemakers' Strike.
QUEBEC, Oct 26. Thirty shoe factories,
employing 1000 men, have shut down as
the result of difficulties between the union

out of the refusal of a union man to work
for weekly wages instead of piece work.
He was discharged and a non-union man
engaged. As a Tesult all the men in the

York. The other towns at which speeches
were made were Hoboken, Harrison,

three speeches belnb made at the latter
place. - " ,
In reality, Mr. Bryan's Thursday- work
extended Into today, for he did not, retire
this morning until about 2 o'clock, and one
of the most pleasant occasions of last
night was the last of the. series. When
he reached his hotel in Hoboken after
his carriage tour of, the city, the fqund
about 500 German citizens, awaiting his
arrival. They Insisted upon tendering
him a serenade, and sang several of the
songs of the Fatherland. Mr. Bryan
expressed himself as highly gratified
with the Jersey campaign. Mr. Bryan will
make a brief run into Connecticut to
morrow, speaking at New Haven and
Bridgeport and .will return to participate
in the meeting of the Democratic clubs
In New York tomorrow nTght
Mr. Bryan made the longest stop of the
day at Dover. He spoke at that place for
about an hour , and addressed a large
crowd, which listened to him attentively.
He'referred in this speech to criticism of
himself to the effect that he made
charges for his campalgji speeches. On
this subject he said:
"According to1 the Republicans, my
farm Is not my only source of Income.
They say that I am so avaricious that
when I am a candidate for President,
I will -not make a speech unless I 'am
paid several hundred dollars. They also
say that I am so amblfious that I would
spend all I have to bo President .It Is
hard to reconcile the two stories. If you
are interested in knowing the facts, I can
tell you that I have been able to make
a living under a Democratic Administra
tion and under Republican Admlnlstra-
tlons and I think I shall be able to make"
a better living under 'a Republican Ad
ministration than most of the Republicans
who will be responsible 1fpr the 'Admin-,
lstration, but I .want to1' tell you that"
every dollar I have made In the last four'
years has been made.out of the voluntary
payment by people for wfiat they bought
and wanted. I published a book and no-'
body bought it unless ho wanted to' buy
it I have written articles for the news
papers. Nob'ody read them unless ,he
wanted to. I have" delivered lectures and'
nobody came unless he wanted1 to come.
Every dollar that I made has been, made
In that way. But if I were tho attorney
for a trust and collected from a people
who paid involuntarily, I would be a good
man in the eyes of the Republicans. I
need not tell you that I receive no, money
for campaign speeches. If the people of
a community pay any money when I Have
a meeting, It Is to meet expenses of the
meeting. In some oases people have paid
the expenses of the train on which I
travel, but It goes from town to town. If
any Republican complains of that, you
tell him that a man who rides on' a train?
must either get a pass over the railroad
or pay hie fare and I would rather the
people would pay f or the train and leave
me Independent than to have the railroad
company furnish It and then own me
after the election." j
Mr. Bryan dwelt at somelength in his
Dover .speech on the 'trust question and
In referring td tho Standard Oil Company
said that company is through its power
as a monopoly extortlnfe: enough money
from the people at large' to pay annual,
dividends amounting .to $50,000,000 upon
an original capital of 5100,000.000. Mr.
Bryan referred to"thefact that Dover had
supplied a companyjof volunteers for the
Cuban War ajyTsaArJlln this connection:
"I had never- learned' to, 'love,
the volunteer before I learned to
love him when 'I came in con
tract -with -him' in the Spanish War.
I believe that this Nation can rest upon
the volunteers; 1 found-down in Florida

There , were evidently .a number of , the,
ex-soldjore In the crowd and 'hey again,,
cheered' as they "had done in the oldcddys.
In Florida. Continuing Mr. Bryan said:
"I knew from the-circumstancea of the

Mr. Bryan -spoke on generaF lines -at
Boonetown and his speech was well, re
ceived. ' '
Ai 'Paternon. '
Mr. Bryan's "Paterson meeting was in
some' respects the in6st notable of the
a'nd the windows almost without excep
tional.' He was conducted from thV'rail-'
road station to the Courthouse in an open
carriage a distance of a mile" or more
through the: principal streets, and Te

The 'crowd -in -the street was very"" enthu
siastic, and -when the- speaking took place,
Mr. Bryan encountered a Veritable ocean
of ' human beings. The crowd was so
dense that he found lt extremely diffi
cult to reach the stand, and -was io ex
tensive that it wis impossible to make
himself heard tp the outskirts. The
speech a Paterson. touched .upon ')

"You cannot afford to take a.v fi om

due to his own merit. When uu

for making the best article at the low
est price, and when you have a monop

I am, not willing that such a system shall

A speech off three minutes was sched

Newark, and a large 'number of people
were' congregated at the railroad station.

enough to permit the crowd to look at

minutes past ,7 o'clock tonight, and here
the. scenes yrhiclfr were witnessed in Jer
sey City last night were repeated on a
somewhat smalhjf scale. The streets were

of the Democratic standard-bearer was
Illuminated with Greek fire. He was first

NEW YORK, Oct 26. Tho second day
of Mr. Bryan's campaign tour of New

vBryan stepped upon the platform he
.appeared Bomewhat fatigued, but as hi

At Summit. '
MOBRISTOWN; N.- J., Oct. 26.-In, his
speech at Summit, Mr. Bryan said that
Democratic success .would not .menace Jthe
,'fortutie of any man, who acquired his
wealth .by legitimate methods, and Is
willing to give' in. adequate return to so
clety. That prospect was no menace. to
the man! who wants only to eat the bread
'which ho' earns and1 to, earn, the, bread
'which He eats,(butjt might be regarded,
lit suiu, us -i. iiieuuuu iu uput weaiui
which was not earne'd by legitimate
means. He contended that, the policy of
equal rights and privileges to alL was in
the end the best for all, for If that policy
did not advance our fortunes! it might
some day prove the protection of our
dhlldren and our children's children. If we
leave bad laws, what assurance have we
that those whom we rob today will not
tomorro'w rob our own flesh and blood?
The poor man should come to the Demo
cratic .party, because it gives him a
chance, and the rich man-because it gives
his son a chance and assures him pro
tection. Mr, Bryan said that he wanted
this Nation to be a moral Influence- in
the world, and did not want it to stand
upon brute force alone. ,He argued thajt
we cannot compete with the Old World
:in becoming d nation of r physical power
unless we place a soldier upon the back
of every toller, and he did not want the
United States to descend to that level. As
fir hlhiself, he was content to. have the
happiness oft a self-governing people, who
are willing to defend their own rights and
, at the , same time respect .the rights of
others. He did .not be said, plead for
, the Filipinos, but for our own people, for
this Ration 'would never be great enough
to.trample upon the rights of "others, and
, in the. end , any -injustice done to any
other people would rebound to our in
jury. At Morrlstown.
At. Morrls.town. Mr. Bryan spoke for 10
minutes ffom the platform of his car to
an audience which was fair In size and
attentive in demeanor. Among other
things he said: " u
"You have here a residence section,

'Republicans attempt to1 frighten the peo
ple by telling them that the Democratic
party is trying to array one class against
a-fKther.' ,It4s 'not true. The Democratic
party'ls trying to "weld society together
'ihto'a harmonious whole; The Deniocf atlo
party is trying to teach the inter-dependence1
of the" classes. It is trying to bring
people to IoVe each other by making
them do "justice unto others."
Speaking of the' Boer war, Mri Bryan
''Some Englishman, in. publishing a tract
against the Boer War said that the Bb.er
war wa3 -being1 carried on to-Tsetrurepos-

Mr. Bryan spoke for an hour at Dover
to a large- audience. He took cognizance
of the reports that he was drawing pay
for his campaign speeches, and said there
was no truth in them,
At If ewark.
-NEWARK, N. 'J., Oct: 26. The scene
when Mr. Bryan entered the Kruger Au-
'dltorlum lp Newark was a-thrilling one.
The big building was crowded to Its ut-
most capacity, and when the candidate
entered, all those present began a- tu
multuous shout. All carried small flags
and 'waved them vigorously. They did"
not cease this demonstration until Mr.
,Bran. arose and raised his hand as. a
: token that hf desired to proceed. Then-,
as if by magic, the tumult ceased, and all
listened In silence, except for occasional
bursts of applause. Dealing with the ne
cessity for suppressing private monopo
lies, Mr. Bryan repeated that his desire
,war to protect future generations, say
ing: "Some one-has. said there are not many
generations between shirt-sleeves and
shirt-sleeves. My own father had to work
his way upon the farm and educate him-
tself by his own labor. I was educated by
my father's money. I think I shall be
able 'to educate my son, but I cannot
tell about my children's children, and I
am not willing to have a Government
good only for bankers or good only for
ttrust magnates. I want a Government
that will place a hope 'in every heart
and make life worth living for every citi
zen born into the world,"
Speaking of the. sl?e of the Army, Mr.
Bryan said that the Republican position
on this subject could not be" defendea.
He asserted that the chairman of the
Congressional committee, -who had forced
through the House of "Representatives the
Army bill, was at the time president of
the Philippine Lumber & Investment
, Company., and that company. Mr1. Bryan
'said, was advertising cheap Chinese labor
as an Inducement to subscribe for its
stock. Mr. Bryan closed his auditorium
speech with an appeal for fair treatment
'of the Filipinos..
When he finished on the Inside of the
building he fojind on the outside a con
gregation 10 times as big as had listened
to him within the building- He was com
pelled to makea speech there, and afer
that he proceeded to the baseball park,
where he made the last address of the
night, closing" shortly "before -midnight.
