Tvro State DoubtfuL
, NEW YORK Oct. -ohn .V.. "Berry,.
who for years was. the. election expert
of the Associated. Press In New York,
la probably the best-known election sta
tistician In-the XjnltedvSiafes-'-. "
In 1AS3 Mr. Berrv vni the statistician
tor the Natlonafc'Democratlc Committee.
The writer has in bis possession the
acted statistician's estimate tff 'te Re
publican phiralltes in both'A&Iathfe ta!d
Vermont, made m the'lst'of September
of this year, and In Voth instances they
-were so hearty correct, Ifwottld almost
eeem that he bad seen the figures "prior
to voting day In those states.
In 1896 two days bef ore-election, he cal
culated McKInley's plurality In the old
City of New York -within 200.
"When it Is considered that New York's
normal Democratic plurality varies from
60,000 to 76,000, an estimate of an edTsfe
plurality of 21,000 must be considered to
be a statistical feat.
"Whether these estimates are based on
mathematical demonstrations or are mere
Uoss werk, let the reader determine by 4
the following: Interview in which the ex
pert explains how he anticipates polltl-.
cal results.
I found the statistician at his desk In
the great Syndicate Building on Park
Row and Interrogated him:
"Mr. Berry, will you tell the public
eomethlng about the coming election and
who. In your opu.!on, is going to win?"
was the opener.
"There are 447 votes in the Electoral
College, of which President. McKlnley is
ure of 271; Bryan. 162, and 14 doubtful,
with a strong probability that West
Virginia will add her vote to the Demo
cratic column, and Nebraska to the Re
publican; if this should be the case, It
would give McKlnley 279 votes and Bryan
"Will you tell by what method you
nave come to that conclusion?"
"I have no objection," was the answer,
I have never objected to any newspa
per man, or, in fact any one else sitting
down at my desk on election night, and
watch me work, and I was always will
ing to tell them zny method, but figures
In the hands of amateur statisticians are
like sharp tools In the hands of men
who do not know how to use them lia
ble to do mischief.
"In the first place I have an advan
tage oer most men for the reason that
I have been paid for jcnr to keep track
of the elections and estimate their prob
able results.
"When an administration Is unpopular
with the people, two ears after a gen
eral election the percentage of the oppo
sition rises, and the others lowers; when
they are satisfied it remains stationary; ,
when It remains stationary or omy sugnt
ly decreases on the one hand, and in
creases In the same ratio on the ther,
or in faet does not fall down-to 5Q. per
cent or less, the party In power will re

"New York State's vote in 1900 will bo
very nearly 1,500,000 votes, 1 per cent
therefore, is equal to 15,000 votes.
'The registration In the E5 counties
north of the Bronx In NeV York State,
this year has heavily Increased over that
of J3$06. In that year tho Republicans had
a plurality of 201,633 In those counties.
There is nothing to indicate thai their
percentage this year will fall off; If It
oes not their plurality will Increase in
exact ratio to tho Increase of their vote.
Nassau County was a part of Queens In
1S96, and cannot be considered. Suffolk
Opunty gave a plurality of 6516 for the Re
publicans In 1896.
The great City of New York, which
the census of 1900 shows contains about
one-half tho population of the state, gave
a Republican plurality In 1S96 of 61,330.
"The Democrats control the government
of the great city, with all It implies. They
must first wipe out an adverse plurality
which In normal years is greater than Is
obtained by either party In the state. Af
ter they bring it to aero, how much they
will -&dd to "n tne other side is prob
lematical, but it can safely be asserted
that it will not be large. I would place
It as a maximum at 20.000, which would
be a- change of -over 81,000 votes.

CINCINNATI, Oct 31.-Mr. Bryan to
night made the first speech that he has
made n this ,cty during the present cam
paign. He arrived on a special train at
8 o'clock tonight Mr. Bryan received a
very cordial "reception In Cincinnati. He
was met at the station by an immense
crbwd and, being driven to 2fusf& Ball
under he escort of the Duckworth Club,
be was there welcomed by thousands on
the, outside of the building and by as
many people oiTtEeTnsIae o'f the great
budding as could be packed' Into it The
crowd in the interior && been awaiting
Mr. Bryan for three hours,, and on ac
count of the heat and the,, packed con
dition of the hall, there was great Im
patience until foe eritcred-the halt It had
not been Intended'that the crow Should
be admitted until 7 o'clock, but they
broke the 'doors down an hour earlier
and helped themselves- to all the avail
able space.
Mr.. Bryan made hls-nrat-speeeh-of the
evening to -the crowd on the outside of
Music Hall. He talk3u only a few min
utes, but was received with loud ap
plause. It took 15 minutes to get the au
dience quiet after Mr. Bryan made his
appearance at 9 o'clock. The, applause
was general and prolonged, but It after
wards degenerated into wild demands for
Bryan, which did not cease while Judge
(Harmon and Maytfr' Jones spoke. They
preceded Mr. Bryan, but they spoke with
but little comfort, on account of the
clamor. Ref erring to the Philippines,
Judge JIarmon said:
"When our Commissioners went to die.
tate terms of peace to Spain ,they boro
instructions. These have been 'carefully
withheld, although the people had a right
to know them -when the treaty took effect.
When they come to light, as they must,
we shall find that they wfre changed
after tho negotiations began, I do tbe
President the Justice to believe he did not
at first Intend to step into the shoes
of the King of Spain, but only meant to
pull or buy him off the backs of the
Tluplnos. This was 'a plain duty,' He
did hot then mean to buy him out and
continue the same business at the old
stand. But the President is better at
seeing his 'plain duty than at dolag it
He takes the wrong kind' of people into
his confidence, and puts himself Trfnden
their control. They turned mm aooui
face. We can guess who they were, be
cause they did the same thing with him
Inter about Porto Rico, and as ha had
committed himself to his duty in a mes
sage to Congress, they had to turn him
into the open.
"It was well. enough to make Spain re
linquish to us all her claims to the Phil
ippines, whjch were largely pretended. All
we had to do was to declare then or
later that we took or held them In trust
for the people thereof, who. by our re
quest had fought side by side with us to
overthrow Spain. What should we have
thought If the French, during our Reo-
lutlon, had bought out England's pre
tentions and then turned their arms to
subdue us? We had no formal treaty
with the Filipinos, as the French had
with us, but honest people do not raise,
technicalities about the obligations of
honor and fair dealing. Many thought,
and he- whom Iam- soon to Introduce
was one of them, that It would be best
to end the war and get rid of Spain by
ratifying the treaty, since it was made,
and then declare and carry out this
trust I believe they were right but they
were deceived as to the real intentions
of tho President, and by the Ttsolutlon
the Senate adopted carefully worded so
as to appear a "promise, and prove an
-evasion. So we went f rem an honorable
war to one of conquest against those v,ho
helped us, because they thought and we
made them think we were, helping them.
Wo have shed more blood and spent more
money In this war than in the war with
Spain, and still our boys are sent to dis
ease and stUl the tax-gatherer calls for
more." ,
Judge Harmon introduced Mr. Bryan
as the next President of the United
States. There was a flutter of handker
chiefs and a general shout, but Mr.
3ryan did not have great difficulty In
securing comparatlve,,qulet after he be
gan. The speech was largely a repeti
tion of former arguments.
Mr. Bryan will start early tomorrow
mornlpg for Indiana, en route to Chicago.
At Toldo-
TOLEDO, O., Oct 3L Mr. and Mrs.
Bryan arrived here this morning from
Dunkirk, N. Y. They were" met at the sta
tion by Mayor and Mrs. Jones. Mrs.
Bryan was accorded a brief reception at
tho Mayor's residence. Mr. Bryan spoke
for an hour in Armor Park. He was In
troduced by Mayor Jones, and he said
that he was proud to bo presented by a
man to whom duty was a higher consider
ation than was any party. Taking up the
question of nonparUsanshlp, Mr. Bryan
said that not only were former Republi
cans coming over, but the Gold Demo
crats were coming back. This, he said,
was the natural result of political con
ditions, and of the Republican party s
persistent disregard of the rights of the
people at large Mr. Bryan then took up
the question of trusts, declaring that the
utterances of both President McKlnley
and Governor Roosevelt showed them to
be more interested in protecting what
they call the good trusts than in suppress
ing the bad trusts. He would make It
impossible, for a. private monopoly to
under-the American flag, and if- elected all
the power would be used to that end.
This 'sentiment was vigorously cheered,
and 'there were cries of "brave."
Just as Mr. Bryan began to speak, and
while Mayor Jones was slill-on'hls feet 1
low 12 young-men who had caused a-dls-1
turbance "were taken in charge by the
police, and barriett out of the grounds. 1
They had brought to the meeting"-place a J
nuge Doaru representation oi an ciepnam
labeled "Q. O. P., which they paraded
about the outskirts of the TemocfaUc
meeting with, muph glee and many hur
rahs. The Mayor himself deprecated po
lice .Interference.
In his speech at Wau-jeon, Mr. Bryan
again charged the Republican party .with
making specious pleas to different, classes
of people, and in support of his assertion
produced circulars addressed to both the
Catholic- church and the A. P. A Refer
ring to these circulars, he said:
"I have received today two circulars,
one being sent -out to members of the A.
P. A. Society asking them to vote the Re
publican ticket as a protest against Cath
olics, and the other asking the Catholics
to vote the Republican ticket as a- pro
test against the A. P. A. Here you find
the Republicans, having failed in their
appeal to the people to support Republi
can principles on any broad grounds, now
sending out circulars appealing to re
ligious prejudices. I thank God that the
Democratic party Is a party to which
people can belong, no matter of what
church they are members, no -matter what
their occupation. We believe in religious,
in civil liberty and men come Into the
DemocraUo party, hot In order to advance
their claims against other people, but In
order to protect the rights of all people
under the American -flag. Our fight has
been a fight for American principles, ap
plied to all these questions."
At Other Points.

nished the best owd ofthe day up to
the time of the arrival at that place, and
after leaving. Toledo, 3fcqBryan dwelt
there upon the question of; trusts.
The schedule did cot include a speech
at Dayton, but a very plJjaeaEtcIdent
occurred there. "When M5.JBryaB spe
cial train? reached the etatlcm; about sun
set there was a crowd ot several thou
sand, people assembled eX that point. Mr.
Bryan "had been notified, that there 'was a
desire to present him with a silver horse
shoe from the Harugaxi Lieaerkranz So
ciety. -'When the train came' to a! full
fcto and Mx. Bryan appeared on the rear
platform, he, wa gjreeted. by prolonged
and tumultuous applause. A committee
of three ladles representing the society
then pressed their way to the front of
the crowd, handed to him a box contain
ing no't Wily1 the horseshore, bnt a col
ored portrait of Mr. Bryan a gold-mounted
badge, and a letter explaining that in a
on$est In the society for the horseshoe,
Mr. Bryan had received 12S0 votes against
270- cast for President McKlnley. Mr.
Bryan responded briefly, saying:
"I desire the ladies who presented this i
horseshoejo bear! my greetings to the i
members of the Mirugari Society, and to
say to them'that while I cannot make a
1 speech inr GerntsnAI Cacc say Ich danke
ihnen.' Tell them I am glad to see that
the Republican appeal to the Germans
has been in vain, as the Republican ap
peal has been 'In vain to pthnr portions of
our population, for while the Germans
want good money, they want good govern
ment also: but Republicans have mis
taken the Germans, when they think that
tjiey are more anxious about the Jtfnd
of raoneyr they .have -than they are about
the kind of government under whlplutbey
Jlo. 1 believe that If we succeeded In
driving evcrj' trust out of the United
States, reducing the standing army to
its former size, and1 in saving this coun
try from the menace of imperialism, the
blessings of Democratic policies will be
so -universally recognized that the people
will never take the horseshoe from the
White House door." .
Ohio and Indiana' both contributed to
the dense audience which greeted Mr.
Bryan, at College. Corners, which Is on
the interstate 'line. ,He was enthusias
tically received there, and In a speech of
20 minutes' duration discussed the various
issues of the campaign, saying among
other things:
"I have been a candidate before, and
during the last foqr.years-yqu have been
Able to read all that the Republican pa
pers have had to say about, me. I read
the other day a new objection to me, .and
that wa that I was, dangerous because
I was honest You have had some of the
dangers that come from dishonesty, and
don't, you think, for a change, you had
better try dangers that come from hon
esty? There is, one consolation about this
charge. I believe I have convinced tho
Republicans when I say a thing I mean
It, arid I want you to- believe" me that If
elected, eVery power will be used to make
it Impossible for a private monopoly to
exist unden the Administration."
Mr. Bryan spoke for five minutes at
Hamilton, briefly upon the questions be
fore tho public He 'was liberally ap
plauded. . ,
(Continued from First Pape )

at this' time of tha,year. ,
"Bourke, Cockran spoke here the Qjher
night lie presented Mr Bryan's, issues
rather "better than Mr.. Bryan could pre
sent them, yet I confess it is incompre
hensible to mo how Mr.,Cockran can now
chmpon Mr Bryan, in ylaw not -only
fit what he said .four years agpaput, of
what he said aajato as last -February,
when he stated, tjiat, no matter whiher
mere was imperialism or not in the, cam
paign, Tie would have to pur&tte the
course he did In 189$, because, He 'said, 'I
regard the Chicago platform as des.ruc
tlve to all government, and 1 should pra
ter sbme government to no government t
"Vveu, wnat are tne reasons he gives
as his excuse? fn the first place, im
perlalisntf in the second, militarism. By
Imperialism he means our expansion in o
the Philippines, an expansion Conducted
on exactly the same basis as Jefferson's
expansion -into the country west of the
Mississippi. Mr. Cockran and Mr. Bryan
have both affected to feel great horror
at the fact that polygamy, and, as al
leged. slavery exists In Sulu, In the
Philippine Archipelago, which is now un
der bur flag. X should like to ask them
if they think that it will help their pol
icy, in the event of our withdrawing the
flag. Our course, as a matter of fact
the only chance of getting rid of either,
consists in keeping tho flag up. We can
not do everything In, a day. Messrs
Bryan and Cockran would be 'the first
to rave against President McKlnley If
he now added to the war with Agulnaldo
another war with the Sultan of Sulu.
"Half a century ago. there were many
abolitionists; sincere, but absolutely fool
ish and wrong-headed people, who, want
ed the free states to secede from the
Union 'because there was slavery hr ths
Union. Had their advice been followed
slavery would exist to the present day
in tho Southern States. The only thing J
to do was what we -actually-did, that 13,
to keep the flag flying, and rwhen the
fullness of time arrived, abolish slavery. J
"So It Is in, Sulu, We shall keep the
flag flyjng, and. therefore, in the end
polygamy and slavery will both disap
pear. I might mention -incidentally that 4
President' McKlnJey has already declined
to irecognlse slavery .In the Islands, and
i therefore, has ' taken 0tep3 toward. Its
abolition. , ., ,.
"And what -are the plans of Messrs
Bryan and Cockran? Why, of all th'ngs
in the world, Mr. Bryan proposes to es
tablish a protectorate over tho Islands,
including Sulu, and, therefore, to per
ptuaie slavery ana polygamy uy fcuui tne lsianaers xnese, amng
helr other Institutions, ' and protectjng
thorn against all "outride interference: In
other words, Mr. Bryan's platform dellb
eirately provides for the perpetuation of
the very evils which he an.d Mr. Ceck
Tan affect to denounce. As a matter of
fact thav can only be done away with
'by following our system."

Bureau finds that the new system of
transporting Indian supplies by dealing
directly with the railroads, instead of

Heretofore the railroads "have retrained

GOSHEN, Ind . Oct. 31. Senator Hanna
was greeted by a great outpouring of peo
ple liere today, the crowd "Doing estimated
at 12,000. In the course of a 30-minute
speech Senator Hanna said:
"I hear on eevry side, "What's the mat
ter with Hanna?' (Cries of "He's all
right!") I want to know what's the mat
ter with Indiana. (Cheers and cries of
"Indiana is all right") X almost think
this election will be unanimous. This
great outpourlhg means much. Bryan
has been preaching free silver, imperial
ism and anti-trust; he has dragged these
issues into the campaign for the purpose
Of deceiving the people. There is nothing
in this contest but let well enough atone.
We have suffered enough, seen enough
souphouses, and we have earned the right
to be prosperous. Do you propose to be
led away by false issues in order to sat
isfy the ambition of ono man? That ex
presses It fully: It Is too long a story to
be covered with arguments at this time.
The,, other side has always been before
the people with every subterfuge imag
inable. In ofdor that the peoople may be
'deceived. Bryan has lowered himself to
the worst kind of demagogy, and has cried
to the people to follow the seer whose
.name is Brj-an.
' "No, my friends, this election is a test
of the loyalty, the patriotism and the ln
telllgerice of the American people. You
do not want to vote for a man whose
government would bring distress and sor
row to the people. Everything on our
s'de appeals to all the sentiments of
patriotism in America. It calls for a vote
of confidence in the Administration; a
vote of confidence In your President who
has preserved the dignity of the NaUon.
Now that we have taken our place among
the fighting naUons, shall we turn our'
hacks to the glory oi our soldiers ana
sailors? 'Shall we shut our eyes and
blindly follow that steer? Good forbid.
Let me warn you that should you be
.misled by false theories' your fate la
sealed. Industrie will shut down; trade
decrease and the laboring class would
be the first to feel it. ' Money can 'be hid
away and when a laboring man loses his
day's work he. loses his 'capital also."

A. H.all. He was greeted 9" .his arrival
by a parade of Rough Risers and factory
men His audience was largely composed
of worklngmen and his argument was ad
dressed toathem being confined, chiefly to
the prosperity issue. The men whose ex-'
ample they should follow, he said, are
the. men who haye successfully -.managed
the countryjs great. Industrial establish
ments. He accused Mr, Bryan, of utter
hypocrisy and charged that In the last
days of the campaign. In desperation, the
Democratic candidate was attempting to
raise class animosity and array working
men, against their employers. His ar
raignment of Mr. Bryan was severe, and
followed his declaration that he had been
the butt of Mr. Bryan's ridicule and sar
casm for years, and now, before Mr.
Bryan's retirement to private life, he pro
posed to give him a few parting shots.

asked to express ah opinion on Chairman

to talk about the matter.
Statements Made by Monnett In an
Ohio Speech.
NAPOLEON, O., Oct 31. A letter from
Attorney-General Griggs to J. R. Linthl-
cum, chairman of the. Republican Com
mittee of Henry County, relative to csr-
tain statements made by ex-Attorney-
General Monnett In a speech delivered
J here Octobor 2L was made public today.
Attorneywqeneral Griggs says:
"I .ana, In receipt of your letter of the
23d lnst,In which you state that ex-Attorney-General
Frank S. Monnett, of
Ohio,. In a Democratic speech at Napo
Jeon on the 22d Inst, stated that I. in a
letter to him, and also in a personal In
terview with him, stated that the reason
whvthe trusts have not been prosecuted
was that the President had been inactive
ahd-lndlfferent In the enforcement of the
antitrust laws.
"Unless Mr. Monnett -has taken leave
of his senses, I -cannot believe he ever
made such a statement "So far as I can
recall, or the records of this department
show, I have never written him a letter
upon any: subject L am sure that I never
syrote him ay letter-upon the subject of
trusts, nor in any rise alluded to the Ac
tion of thjs Administration, with refer
ence thereto. With his allegation that I
made such. 6, statement in a personal in
terview to htm, that is also entirely un
true. J never met Mr. Monnett .but onoe,
and that was ony for, a few minutes,
whpn he caljed tq pay a visit of cour
tesy, being Introduced to me by" his prede
cessor, the present Solicitor-General, John
Richards, of Ohio. I do not believe that
the subject of trusts, or any other sub
ject except such as would arise in gen
eral conversation upon a visit of this na
ture, was touchea upon. I am sure that
I made no such statement as you say Mr.
Monnett attributes to roe, Nor could I
have made such a statement, because it
.,t.i v.n.. hiuin untrue. The attitude
and record of this Administration on the
subject of prosecution under the anti
trust laws are contained in the last an
nual report of the Attorney-General to
Congress, a copy of which, is forwarded
to you by this mall."

on hie way to his home In Wheeling, W.

in Colombia are sadly mixed. Tne Lib

government will be eventually successful.
But the revolution is seriously, disturbing
business. General Prosper- Pinron is In
command of the government forces, and
the revolutionists-are commanded by Gen
eral Rafael Uribe. The scene of the, trou.
ble is the Department of Cauca.
"In tho recent election, San Clcmentl
and Senor Marroquln were elected Presi
dent end Vice-President respecU ely. San
Clementl, on. account of the state of Ms
health, could not live in Bogota, and
went to Vllleta. In his absence, Marro
quln started a rebellion and assumed the
Presidency, securing the recognition of
all the foreign powers except the papal
see. Both San Clementl and Marroquln,
however, are drawing their salaries cf
S6.0CO pesos per annum- This is payable
in silver, but the currency of Colombia
is so upset that it Is difficult to place
a value upon. It
"It Is too bad that there are Internal
dissensions in. Colombia, because, under
a peaceful regime, the country has re
markable opportunities for development
"There is a demand there for Benito
Seamala, who is here in New York. He
was formerly United States Vice-Consul
at Bogota. The Marroquln Government
charges him with conspiracy, and he Is
practically an exile."

NEW YORK, Oct 31. Tho announce

States made by the Census Bureau, says
a Washington special to the Times, has
started speculation about the effect on
the apportionment for members of Con

Congress which Is yet tp be elected. It
quite certain, however, that severs.!
states will, lose. One of them is Ne
braska, which gained only 1Q.0OQ "pdpu

gained only 30,000. Nevada shows a fall

for she has only one Congressman now
and" cannot Tiave less.
The greatest gainer Under "the conserva
tive estimate of the Increase df 200,000
to each Representative will be Pennsyl
vania, which will gain three Congress
men, bringing her number up to 31. New
York would gain two, reaching a total
of 38. Kentucky, Maryland. South Caro-
