BRYAN IN KENTUCKY
He Is Pointed for the

Bryan left Louisville this morning at
7 :40 for the Blue Grass region of Ken
tucky. He will make speeches en route
at La Grange, Eminence, Versailles.
Midway and Lexington, completing the
day's speaking at Maysville, Ky. At
Versailles, Bryan will be the guest of
Senator C. J. S. Blackburn.' Bryan ex
pressed himself as highly pleased with
his Louisville reception.
Frankfort, Ky., Sept. 15. Bryan's
first speech today was made from the
platform of a car at La Grange. The
campaign, he said, was of the greatest
importance. The money question de
served the deep study of every one. He
said he iound his visit to Kentucky un
necessary, as the silver sentiment pre
dominated before his coming. He was
applauded wildly by the 700 people
After leaving La Grange, Engineer
Ben Schultz, of the Louisville & Nash'
ville train, to which bis car was.' at
taclled, gave "Bryan the fastest ride he
bad had in the entire campaign-, sending
the train along at a trifle over 80 miles
an hour. At Eminence it was raining
but the citizens of Henry county flocked
about the speaker's stand, to which
Bryan was taken. He gave a 10-minute
speech, devoted for the greater part to
answering the statement made by his
opponents that in consequence of the
greater production of silver than of gold
the white metal had depreciated, and
would depreciate in value. He ad
mitted that .the product of -silver had
' been three times as great in the last
twenty years, but he said in the last five
years the production , of ' gold had in
creased more rapidly than that of silver.
and the price of 6ilver bullion has fallen
more than at any other time. He said

the price of silver was affected .by the

THE DIllOCKAlIC CONTENTION.
The Empire State at a Gathering- In
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 15. It looks
like a state convention tonight, and the
arrival of the Tammany delegation has
done more to bring into view old conven
tion faces than anything that has hap
pened. During the afternoon there was
every evidence of friction, but as the
evening wore on, the Tammany delega
tion arrived in town, every light con
troversy that bad arisen was smoothed
over, and it became more tnan ever evi
dent that the convention was to be dom
inated by the great political organization
from New York.
From the time Mr. Hinckley arrived
this morning and announced that the
selections of Elliott Banforth, of, New
York?, a member of the Bryan and
Sewall notification committee, for
state chairman and Frank S. Camp
bell lor national committeeman, were
favorable to Mr. Hill, until late tonight
till this news was confirmed, there had
been a conflict among the assembled
delegates. It ends tonight by the with
drawal of Mayor Malloy from the contest
for state committee chairman and the
indorsement of Campbell for office of
national committeeman, an ending that,
to everybody's mind, signifies a compro
mise with Senator Hill, in order to keep
together the state organization and the
withdrawal of Senator Murphy's candi
date in the interest of harmouv.

representative of tbe Cuban junta here,
that if the insurgents would lay down

able to the insurgent leaders.
Mr. Huan agreed to lay the proposi

would hardly be accepted, as nothing
short of absolute independence would
satisfy the Cubans now. ' .

Constantinople, Sept. 14, via Sofia.
Bulgaria, Sept. 15. Ambassadors of the
powers held a meeting today to lay out
a plan for measures of protection for the
different embassies and the foreign pop
ulation generally in the event of a re
newal of the disturbances here. The
plan is understood to include the united
action of the warships of all the powers,
each ship being assigned to a certain
position and the men to be landed at a
given signal to protect the threatened
points. The defenses of the embassies
will also, it is rumored, be considerably
strengthened by an increase in the num
ber of men now guarding tbem, and by
otber precautions which will tend to
make tbem capable of resisting an at
tack for a considerable time. It is also
reported that in case of possible contin
gencies a number of additional warships
of the powers will reinforce the guard
ships now doing duty in these waters.
