JUDGE WILLIAMS AT LA GRANDE

X.A. GRANDE, Oct. 25. Judge George H.
Williams, of Portland, spoke at Steward s
Opera-bouse last night to an audience of
about 1200 people. He arrived, on the
morning- train, and was the guest of the
local Hepublicans during the day. A com
mittee of 100 met Judge Williams at 'the
train and escorted him to the parlors ct
the Hotel Foley, where a pubLc recep
tion was held for ono hour.
In, the afternoon, in company with
prominent Republicans, be visited the

Judge Williams' remarks were d liv
cred extemporaneously, but were replete
with a sincerity and vigor that won. the
lavor of the audience. The speaker r.
late4 in the outset that, inasmuch as
other speeches had been delivered h"re,
lie would not cover the same grpun.d, but
woujd confine his remarks chiefly to Can
didate Bryan. He proposed, be raid, to
convince his auditor that the fusion"
nominee fox the Presidency is cot worthy
of the support of the practical, thlnjUlng
people of th.e United states, and tha he
is npt a safe man to trust with the af
fairs of the Qcvernmenf. "There are two
candidates," said tbe speaker, "which do
you Intend tp suoport? In making up
your answer, "consider 5Vll the 'candidates
and their principles. One is racing about
the country begging and pleading for
votes, telling what .he SJTpuJd do Jf e.ected,
and belittling- his opponent. With such a
man there is great danger that in office
lie would descend from the plane ol
statesmanship Jo mere demagogy, fcr, ac
cording to the definition, Bryan is a. dem
agogue pandering tp the people to in
fluence their prejudices and their fas
eions. "His actions during and preceding the
present campaign have shown him a dem
agogue in several Instances First, in the
matter of the treaty wjth. pain. It re
ojiircd a twp-thirds yote pf fho Senate,
and therefore a number of Democratic
votes to ratify, 3?Ji.owlng tljis, Bryan
rusbed to Washington and bent tyery ef
fort to secure the ratipcatlpn, TM? ha
admits, and Senator Hoar and others
claim that without Bran's influence tl)e
treaty would not have heen ratified. His
purpose in. so dolpg was nojt to increase
our commercial greatness and extend, the
Influence of the flag, but to create an
Issue and subserve his own intere:ts.
Be knew that free silver was a feeble
issue and that some other must be cre
ated. He accordingly worked for the Tat
ificatlon, though it gave the United States
a. clear title, provided for possession and
the payment of 520,000,000, and gave the
Inhabitants civil rights. If is manifest
that if Bryan had remained at home the
treaty would not btv, e been ratified, and
all of the turmoil which iie now depre
cate would hae heen avoided. I ask
without party prejudice whether such a
candidate is worthy of support?
'McKinley is criticised because he dees
not withdraw the troops He nas no right
to do so. The treaty is binding, it de
clares our title and ownership. McKinley
is bound by the Constitution to execute:
the treaty, and if he gave aw ay any ter
ritory would deserve to be removed from
"A second instance la which Bryan re
veals himsejf a demagogue is Jn hjs ef
forts to divide the people 3pd create an
tagonisms, especially between the laborer
and the employer. The whole drift ot his
speeches is that the men who employ la
borers ore the unprincipled enemies -of
those whom they employ. He recognizes
that the laborers are 4n the majority, and
hopes py arousing their nrejudices to In
fluence their votes. He holds up the busi
ness men. to scorn, as if they were en
gaged in criminal pursuits He denounces
all people who have accumulated wealtji.
""A third example of Bryan's many Jn.- I
consistencies Is his attitude on the trust
question. He continues to make the fa'se
assertion that the trusts are all yrjthjn
the Republican party, when as a mat
ter of fact they are mere business asso
ciations, unaffected by politics. Thir ob
ject is to make money, and business
Democrats are just as eager to ajaty
themselves of the means as are the Her
publicans. There 4s no difference hetw-en
men in this respect, -and Bryan therefore
bears false witness against a iarge part
of our people when he asserts that trusts
are restricted to itie Hepubllcaii arty."
Judge Williams was vigorous in his de-
nuncjatjon of Bryan's insincerity in this j
regard. He touched lightly -upon the
money (question, but .emphasized the fact
that whatever might be made of Impe
rialism, the trusts and otfrer similar is-J
sues, the real issue was whether thsl
American people wished to retain the
present prosperity or enter. pon a period j
of doubt, uncertainty and depression, if
not of vicious legislation. Nothing, he j
6a1d, was worse than uncertainty, and
uncertainty and a lack of confidence -in
the money centers was certain Jo ensue 1

Lirfre audiences irreeted the speakers

from the outset that Mr. Tongue was
master of the situation, and as the dis

see hat 2r. Wdoa was no inatch for the
honorable gentleman from HHJsboro.
In a tjc-o hours speech, Mr. Tngue
Te"ievftd the present prosperous condi

out that the promises made by the Re
publican party four years ago had been J
fulfilled, and that if it was wrong to re

hold Porto RJtgJ, Alaska, California, or
Txas. He was interrupted by frequent
Mr. Wood's reply occupied but half an j
hour. He sfafed that it was impossible
for the Administration to make prosper

mike it out of?"
In the ovonlng. Mr. Wood spoke for 2
hours, on imperialism, comparing Aguln
aldo to Washington, and stated that the
Philippines should ics Iree as Is Cuba.
He plalnlj said that he was in favor f 3

a great economic fallacy to have free J

will be easily overcome by the heavier

Mr. Wood's address vas very long and
tjresome, to his audience. He touched on
mapy points at issue Jn the caznpaign,
but wobbled v,ery badly on most of them.
The only two points that he seemed to
bo well grounded in were tha theory of j
xree fraae ana fie so-called issue of im
perialism. On nearly every other subject
Ijp said hjs mind was not fully deter
mined. He quoted the spook "so-called
Lincoln letter from the Democratic text- j
oook, opt declined to vouch ior its au

the Mayor explained tp the Demociats
Jthat he feared -a coljislon if two demon

city is large ,enough for two, '-and there
hasnever .been the slightest cause for

So far this year, paptaln 'Walnwright
has' bought about 1200 horses. He has
iakett the animals from the Willamette
yalley and Southern Oregon mtil tho
present contract, whilp Captain Cljesver
operated in this seption. No reports have
been received from the Philipplns on the
endurance of-the Eastern Oregon horses

'The bunchgrass horse of this section,"
said he, "has been found especially val

"For the regular cavalry service a little
better-bred animal of larger size Is re
quired fhan most of those presented for
Inspeotlon now. But I must say many
of the horses now being recelyed for serv
ice in the tropics would make excellent
animals for the regular service. They
combine proper size and breeding with
all-the qualities of endurance. Gpod wind
ajjd fine feet are characteristlps pf Jhe
bunchgrass animal. When llsay that ths
pass is not sp suitable to the reguiar
cayajry, I refer to the general run of
range horses I have bought horses in
Baker GJty today which, with their very
little ha.ndllng.'are as fine a type of the
regular cavalry horse as I have ever seen.
"It'ls well knpwn that these Western
hprses have a streak;' of 'what used to
be known as broncho blood This is, what
gives them, their bucking proclivities. Bui
this ;taint o'f brpncho blood does not at all
detract from the value of the hocse fpr the

perfecj; cavalry horse should combine 'the
hardy and gpod qualities of 'the" Western

In choosing horses for the cayalry of
the Philippines, Captain Walnwright has
kept within given limits. His action Is
best indicated In hfs definltlpn of the
most desirable animal for that service,
which is as follows:
"My type of a cavalry horse for the
Philippines Is one from 14 to 15 hands
high, weighing betweeh 850 and "10Q
pounds, closely built, short-coupled, fine
feet, large barrel, good, solid color, which
means I would take an iron gray, but
prefer, brown, bay, black or sorrel. The
animal filling these requirements should
also be properly broken. Of course there
are many other minor points taken Into
consideration in passing on a horse, such
as hfs legs, -how he Is set up, his moye
ment and carriage, etc."
The result of sending Eastern Oregon
horses to the Philippines will be watched
with great interest by stockmen of this
secilon'of the"state. "Until the past three
yars, demand for Eastern Oregon horses
was notnIn5- They were generally re
garded as a burden, almost without yalue.
Increased vpe of cavalry Js brJngIns
horses to the front, as there are more
than United States Government agents in
the field. A short tinie ago an agent for
the German Government, who had failed
to find" what he wanted In California,
spent considerable time In Eastern, Ore
gon and made pome pui chases The Phil
ippines will fully demonstrate the yalue

Wilj be the case, that Eastern Oregon

the correction made in The Oregonlan thji

not correct; "that DrW. P. yia, of this
