say right here, fellow- cltlxens, that I
endeavor to do my duty to the beat of
my ability and convictions; but I 'am
free to say that upon this olio paiticu
lar question I have h:!d my doubts, but
do not Intend to turn my back uihui all
the other Kepubllcjin plunks, protuc-
tlon to the American workmen, ui'.d
those steadfast, principles which have
leen the st.iy of the party for years,
simply liecause of one plank of the
platform alnnit which I am not abso
lutely ure. I do not believe that there
is anything that can be done by any
other nation on earth which we can
not do, but there are some things
which neither we no any other nation
can aecompll.sh alone or single-handed.
'On this free silver question I will
say that I do not believe that the na
tion can possibly prosper with free
trade upon the one side and free silver
upon the other. My friends, the lie-
publican party Is and always has been,
the true friend of sliver. And whatever

Been a botch? The Republican party
today Is the only party which la equal
to the emergency now confronting the
American people. True bimetallism, if
ever adopted, will be adopted by Inter
national agreement and through the
efforts of the Republican party. The St.
Lnula platform pledges our party to
this action, and If Mr, McKlnley Is
elected he will take his seat In the
White House pledged to that principle.
We have bimetallism today In one
sense. All our money circulates at a
parity, and I do not want to see any
legislation that will change that pnrlty.
Every dollar which circulates among
the worklngmen must be a dollar that
la worth 100 cents. '
"Some of our adversaries say that
we are now monometalllsts. Others
argue that to adopt free silver would
make us silver monometalllBts. Were
these propositions true nnd we were
compelled to accept one or the other
of the horns of this dilemma, how much
better that we adopt the gold standard
and place ourselves upon equality with
the other nations of the earth. Prom

"Let us trust the welfare of this
country to that party which has al-
ways made tt a proierous country. I
do not believe in Ill-mated people. In
private life lt always makes trouble,
and with political parties It must be
the same. Look at Kansas today. The
Popullstlc party is the result of a union
between the Populists and Democrats,
and now- you would have to use a lan-
tern and a microscope to find a Demo-
crat In the state. Its schoolhouses
have been closed, and business has
gone away from It. Shall we put our
national affairs In the hands of such a
party? I say no. (Applause.) The bet -
ter element of the old Democratic party
which through all the vicissitudes of
time have stood by its principles,
have rightfully stood aloof from such
a measure. They are going back to
Grandpas Palmer and Buckner In order
that they may stand with clear con-
sciences upon their own principles.
"Like the old farmer In Iowa who
for years staunchly supported the prln-
clples of Democracy, when asked what
he thought of the Chicago platform,
he said that lt made little difference
about the platform, as It was made for
a corpse. He explained that the differ-
ent parties which amalgamated at Chi- t states have been very rare. The sea

lady who periodically went on a shop -

pull down every piece of goods on the
shelves, and when the long-patient
store man -grew tired and suggested
that she take a certain pattern, she
said: 'Well, tt makes little difference
anyway, because the pattern is for a
corpse'
"There are other Issues in this cam-
pal'gn more important than tho money
question. The declaration of the Chl -
cago platform censuring the president
of the United States for declaring that
the supreme law of the United States
waa paramount to the law of any indl -

"The present season has been an ex-
tremely disastrous one. In fact, it has
been one succession of gales which pre
vented the sealers from securing good
catches. For weeks and weeks the
sealers have been unable to lower a
boat, and I think that this accounts for
the failure of 1SA6, and the inability of
the sealers to secure the usual supply
; of skins. From Information that I
could gather during the past winter,
the winds from the south have failed to

Active Condition of Trade In Wheat
on the Chicago Board.
Chicago, October 1. December wheat,
which closed yesterday at Wi', open
ed this morning at 6S69c, and in a
little over an hour It went as high as
10c, being 13 cents above Its price on
Monday, September 9. an average ad
vance of -c per bushel a day for the
Intervennlg twenty-two daye. An ad
vance so steady has not taken place
since the spring of 18&5, in May of that
year 20 cents per bushel having been
added. A remarkable thing about the
rise now In progress is that It Is In the
face of more or lees uncertainty regard

to 70M, waa followed by a reaction to
but that In turn was succeeded
by a still further addition to Its early
strength, and before 12 o'clock the price
had r!?ctt to "04c for December. Such
continued strength surprised the crowd
who were looking for breaks. But lt

York dispatch read as follows:
'English houses again accepted a
good deal of wheat There Is a demand

of that country, was reported to be

DISTINGUISHED VISITOR.
A Japanese Capitalist Seeking Trade
Relations with the Pacific Coast
San Francisco, October 1. Among the
guests at the Palace Hotel is K. Noro,
a Japanese capitalist, who comes from
Kobe, Japan, in the furtherance of a
scheme for the improvement of com
mercial relations between Japan and
this country, as well as between Japan
and England. He is vice-president and
managing director of the Naigawal
Russian Trading Company, of Kobe,
w hich has a large capital, and will en
gage in a general trading business.
When seen today he said that his com
pany was preparing to deal extensive
ly In silks, mattings, embroideries, art
goods and other products of Japan.
These are to be placed on the market
here and elsewhere or exchanged for
flour, canned goods, machinery and
such other articles as can be profitably
sold In the Japanese markets. After
remaining here a fortnight it is Mr.
Noro's Intention to go to Portland and
other cities in the Northwest to see If
he can do any business with the big
flour mills in that section of the country'-
He will then go to New York and
London, establishing agencies for his
company In both places.
STARTLING TELEGRAMS.
Canadian Pacific Operators Awaiting
the Action of Other Employes.
Toronto, October 1. The question now
discussed regarding the railway teleg
raphers' strike is, will the railway or
ganizations Join the telegraphers in
their fight against the Canadian Paclllc.
Both the company and the strikers are
awaiting the action of the engineers,
conductors and trainmen as to the pol
icy they will adopt. The trades and
labor unions In the city are In sympa
thy with the strikers and the fact that
United States operators are coming to
this country to fill vacant positions In
tensifies the feeling. It Is proposed to
urge on the local members of parlia
ment the necessity of making without
delay such regulations as will prohibit
the lmiortation of American labor.

A SURPRISE AT ATCIIISO.V
School Childres. Old Soldiers. I sited Statct

Juis is the Reception- Del
icate Attention
Topcka, Kan., October 1. The federal
general entered Kansas today front
Nebraska and made their first stop at
Atchison at an early hour this morning.
The party had not been apprised of
any demonstration at that point, and
were agreeably surprised when ex-Senator
Jno. J. lngalls entered their coach
at S o'clock at the head of a reception
committee. The party was escorted te
the depot where several thousand
school children, a flambeau club, and a
band were lined up to receive the vis
itors. Senator Ingalls acted as presi
dent of the meeting and Introduced
General Howard. The general waa en
thusiastically greeted. He spoke at
some length, upholding the St. Louis
platform, and was heartily cheered.
As General Howard stepped from the
platform a shower of bouquets were
thrown by the school children upon
him and three cheers were given for
Generad Howard and Senator Ingalla.
General Alger, spoke briefly, saying;
among other things:
"I want to say that I don't believe all
the stories I hear that Kansas Is going;
to repudiate her obligations and con
tinue to go down hill. There Is nothing
the matter with Kansas." (Cheers.)
General Sickles 'followed and said he
wanted his hearers to send Senator
Ingalls back to the senate. Continuing;
he said New York would give McKlnley
500,000 majority.
At Tcpeka there was a great demon
stration. As each of the "generals entereS the
reviewing stand he was given a rous
ing cheer. The parade was participated
In by the old soldiers. United State
regulars, Kansas National Guards, Bre
men's association other military and
civic societies and something over 300
school children. The number of per
sons in the line was variously esti
mated from 35,000 to 40.000. Twice as
many more people thronged the streets.
The members of the party unite in
saying that the most pleasing Incident
so far of their journey was the delicate
bit of courtesy shown by Mrs. Bryan,
the wife of the Democratic candidate
for president, who, while the procession
in honor of the visiting generals was
moving past her bouse In Lincoln, dis
played over her door a large portrait
of Wm. McKlnley tastefully draped In
the national colors. It was a touch
of womanly grace, beautiful as lt was
unexpected, and Gen. Alger says that
he will cherish It as a sweet recollec
tion plucked from an acrimonious cam
paign until the end of his days.
ANOTHER BRYAN TRICK,
Leadville, Col., October 1. As a re
sult of the miners' union meeting last
night a majority have decided to re
main quiet until after election. If Mc
Klnley Is elected the present intention
is to abandon the strike; if Bryan is
elected the hope is that the price of sil
ver will advance and the managers will
at once concede all the demands of the
union. Active preparations continue tor
a resumption of work on the Bison and
other large mines.
