SUCCEEDS CHAS. A. TOWNE ON
FOR VICE PRESIDENT
Mr Stevenson Gets His Fourth
Nomination by the Action of
the Populist Committee.
Chicago, 111 Speclal.) Adlat E.
Stevenson tied William J. Bryan In the
number of nominations when the popu
list national committee last night
named him for vice president. Up to
that time Mr. Bryan had been nom
inated four times and Mr. Stevenson
three times. The populists by accla
mation nominated Mr. Stevenson for
vice president to fill the vacancy on
their ticket, caused by the with
drawal of Charles A. Towne. A test
vote, however, which preceded the
final vote, showed that twenty-four of
the ninety-five members of the com
mittee present were opposed to nom
inating the vice presidential nominee
of the democrats, silver republicans
and American Monetary league.
Senator Marion Butler of North Car
olina, chairman of the committee, put
up a hot fight against the nomination
of Mr. Stevenson, although he knew
before the committee went Into ses
sion that the Stevenson- men had over
seventy votes. General James Weaver
led the fight for Stevenson; Senator
Pettlgrew, who had been talking for
Stevenson for three days, made his
record good for the populists of his
state by voting with Senator Butler
on the test vote.
MAKE MANY SPEECHES.
The committee held its session at 206
LaSalle street, with Senator Butler In
the chair and Secretary Edgerton at
the desk. The session lasted for nearly
seven hours, most of this time being
used in speechmaking. Mr. Towne's
letter of withdrawal was read and ac
cepted, and then General Weaver
started the fight by moving that Mr.
Stevenson be nominated to fill the
vacancy. Almost immediately a sub
stitute motion that a populist be nom
inated was introduced, and then the
oratorical floodgates were opened. Gen
eral Butler said that he thought the
populists should accept Mr. Towne's
withdrawal and leave the vacancy un
filled. He argued that the populists
could not nominate Mr. Stevenson, for
the democrats had ignored the popu
lists In the Kansas City convention,
and if the populists took up the dem
ocratic vice presidential nominee they
would lofse prestige and give the "mid
dle of the road" popujlsts' good cause
to claim to be the genuine people's
party. Committeeman Washburn of
Massachusetts talked In a like strain.

Treasurer of National Committee
Gives His Views.
Chicago, 11!. (fipecial.) In comment
ing on the action of the national com
mittee of the people's party in nom
inating Mr. Stevenson yesterday as Its
vice presidential candidate to fill the
vacancy cased by the declination of
Mr. Towne, Mr. George F. Washburn,
treasurer of the national committee,

who would stay with us until the polls
closed or eise take no action on the
declination of Towne.
"When Towne allowed his name to
be presented to our convention for a
candidate for nomination It was equiv
alent to an acceptance; furthermore, his
friends pledged us In the convention
that he would remain In the field. Had
there been the least suspicion that he
would not have remained in the field,
he would not have been nominated;
therefore, I deny his moral right to
withdraw without our consent, after
using our nomination In trying to se
"I believe the best way to hold the
populist vote for Bryan is to keep faith
with our constituents. Had our na
tional convention been In session In
stead of our committee It would cer
tainly have nominated a populist.
"Notwithstanding the local conditions
and the efbarrassment caused by this
act, I appeal to populists everywhere
to work earner ily, with unceasing vigor
for the election of Mr. Bryan. He Is the
greatest reform crusader of this age,
and his election must be assured.

sentiment of Senator Butler, chairman
of the national committee, but what I
believe to be the true sentiment of the
rank and file of the psrty throughout

CHAS. A. TOWNE OPENS THE
CAMPAIGN AT DULUTH.
HE ROASTS ROOSEVELT
With Irresistible Logic He Tears
the Administration's Imper
ialism to Tatters.
Duluth, Minn. (Special.) The largest
gathering to listen to a political speech
that ever assembled in Duluth occurred
at the armory, when Charles A. Towne
opened the campaign In a lengthy ad
dress In which he replied to the recent
speech of Governor Roosevelt, delivered
at St. Paul on the occasion of the na
tional convention of the League of
Republican clubs, and arraigned the
administration's policy In the Philip
pines. The audience, which comprised
persons of all shades of palitlcal belief
and many scores of women, listened at
tentively to the orator's remarks for
more than two hours and frequently
throughout the discourse the applause
The speech, which will be used as a
campaign document, is described as
Mr. Towne's greatest political effort.
At Its conclusion he was tendered an
ovation by the multitude present.
Mr. Towne opened by expressing a
lack of patience with any one who be
lieved in their "party, right or wrong,"
considering the latter simply another
statement of the divine right of kings.
He then said:
"Numerous questions are Involved in
this campaign. It is rare, however,
that more than one great issue is de
cided at a time, and, us a rule, one
subject of Interest is uppermost In the
public mind and chiefly calls for dis
cussion and decision. This Is especially
true in WOO. The relatively secondary
matters, Important as they are, ail have
reference to policies to be pursued by
the republic. The Issue of first moment,
the one that temporarily dwarfs all oth
ers by comparison, is whether the re
public Itself is to continue.
"It is one of the paradoxes of history
that a policy of subjugation and con
quest should have been the Inheritance
of a war of liberation," he said.
Then he reviewed at some length the
causes leading up to anu me cniei
vents of the Spanish war. He took up
fthe insurrection In the Philippines,
Sketching It briefly, and telling how
brilliantly Dewey and his sall-jrs en
gaged the Spanish fleet in Manila bay,
"Jt was thus as a mere Incident In
the prosecution of our war for the lib
erty of Cuba that we found ourselves
In the Philippine islands. It is claimed
that circumstances were such as to
compel u, with due regard to our In
terests and our international duties, to
pursue in these islands thereafter the
policy for which the administration has
become responsible. A brief examina
tion, however, of those circumstances
will suffice to show that the policy
adopted was not only unnecessary, but
It was In the highest degree disadvan
tageous to us, while involving the ut
most cruelty and injustice toward the
inhabitants of those islands and violat
ing every principle of good faith and
the honorable traditions of American
PROMISE OF INDEPENDENCE.
He said the coming of Aguinaldo was
at the invitation of Admiral Dewey and
that he was to be an ally of the Ameri
cans, quoting from the naval records in
support of his assertion.
After again referring to the different
situations In Cuba and the Philippines,
"But the statement that we never
promised the Filipinos their Independ
ence conveys a false impression. Our
conduct was such as to estop an hon
orable nation from using such a plea
from a justification or excuse for an
attempt to subjugate the Islands.
"The Filipinos made no secret of
their rebellion against the Spanish gov
ernment. What they desired to do was
to form a government of their own and
to be absolutely Independent of Spain.
The representatives of the United
States In the east knew of this object
perfectly well. The Filipinos proclaim
ed It to the world.
"It Is Important to bear In iilnd that
the Filipino republic established under
the leadership of Aguinaldo was a gov
ernment In fact, recognized throughout
the Island of Luzon, atid several ad
joining islands to the south, capable of
preserving order, collecting taxes, main
tainlng education and a complete sys
tem of public administration, raising
and supporting an army which for a
considerable period numbered 20.000, and
conducting war according to the hu
mane principles of modern Internation
al law. a
"It Is Impossible to determlnehe ex
act time with which the authorities at
Washington decided to, take forcible
possession of the Philippine Islands.
It is clear that Admlrsl Dewey for a
considerable period after the battle of
Manila bay, had no knowledge of such
an Intention. General Anderson, who
took command of our land forces In the
Islands about the first of July, 1S8, In
an article In the North American Re
view for February, IWiO, says:
"'1 was the first to tell Admiral Dew
ey that there was sny disposition on
the part of the American people to hold
the Philippines If they were captured.'
There will be little dissent from the
proposition that If he came to Manila
with such knowledge the most obvious
considerations of Justice and fairness
requited that the Filipinos t epeedtlv
acquainted with it. Yet they were per
mitted to Indulge in the illusion of h !"
from our supposed friendliness to their
plans of Independence, with whl'h thetr
proclamatlons had made us famllUr."
ADMINISTRATION THE A'-JKEw!S
After describing the strained relations
between the Americans and the Fili
pinos after the capture of Maniia. Mr.
"Our opponents are in the habit of
referring to the outbreak of actual hos
tilities between us and the Filipinos as
though the latter were the aggressors,
and much Is attempted to be made out
of such expressions as "they fired on
"But of course since we had secretly
formed a determination to Belze the Isl
ands it ts apparent that whenever that
design became manifest or we attempt
ed to put it Into effect, the Filipinos,
if they were earnest when declaring
their object to be Independence, would
resist It. The aggressor, regardless of
who struck the nrst blow, would be not
he who stood In defense of a right, but
he who by act or threat compelled the
Ither to defend it. The development of
the hostile design was itself an attack.
The wonder Is, considering th tropical
nature of the islanders and the long
continued course of our mingled reti
cence, ambiguity and offense, that they
were not betrayed Into violence long
before any physical clash actually oc
curred. As a matter of fact, however,
as shown by General Otis' official re
port, our troops fired the first shot and
the Filipinos stood on the defensive."
He then discussed the protocol and
the treaty of peace and the proclama
tion of January 3, at Manlla.whUh
he declares "Is of the very essence of
Imperialism. Divested of its cant and
made over Into plain language, the
proclamation tells the Filipinos that we
have seized their country by brute
force anr propose to hold It, and that
they must submit to our pretention,
yield to our assumed authority, or be
shot to death. It boldly proclaims the
right of conquest, the highway robbery
of nations. For the first time in Amer
ican history It Is asserted by the re
sponsible leader of a great party and
a president of the republic that we may
rightfully wage war for the purposes
of domination and acquire property in
the lands of other nations, and juris
diction over their liberty and persons
by the mere, tczt of superior strength.
It violates the most sacred traditions
of our history.
"But what Is probably as sinister In
this proclamation as this flagrant In
dorsement of force as the basin of po
litical authority and as significant of
Imperialistic tendencies in the execu
tive. Is the cool assumption that the
president has the power to net before
the execution of the treaty. The treaty
was not yet ratified. It had not Indeed
been approved by the senate, but might
easily never nave been approved since
the final action of that body Is said
to have been taken by a bare majority
of one vote. This assumption of power
admittedly before the treaty conferred
It on him. and where the exercise of It
was certain to Involve the nation In
war. as It soon did, was the most pro
digious." ROUGH RIDE FOR ROOSEVELT.
Taking up Governor Roosevelt's
speech he declared It to be "enormous
"Neither In matter nor In manner is
it worthy of Its occasion," he said. "In
respect of argument the speech is with
rare exceptions an altercation of eva
sion and assertion. In spirit It is a com
pound of scold and scullion. As to Its
facts it abounds in Inaccuracies which,
if accidental, are Inexplicable as com
ing from a man who has performed
creditably in history and blograph. But
the world Is accustomed to Inconsist
encies from Mr. Roosevelt. It has long
looked upon him as a predestined and
Incorrigible eccentric. It has given up
attempting to explain or reconcile him
with himself. It Is quite Impossible,
whether it would be worth wn!l oth
erwlse or not, to make an entirely sat
isfactory diagnosis If a civil service
reformer in partnership with Thomas
C. Piatt; a citizen soldier who ridicules
the volunteer, a leader In battle who
finds glory in being rescued from an
ambush; a hero who boasts of shooting
a fleeing foe in the back; a candidate
who plays and poses to delegates and
galleries to obtain a nomination that
he does not want; a gentleman who
charges six and one-half millions of his
fellow countrymen with lawlessness,
dishonesty and cowardice; a statesman
who, mounted on a hobby, rides roughly
at grave questions In economics a nd
politics, swinging his partisan lariat
and yelling like an intellectual Comanche."
PLEASED WITH THE POPULISTS.
Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 2S. (Special.)
Mr. Bryan thus expressed his pleasure
lod-ay over the action of the populist
national committee in Indorsing Hon.
A. E. Stevenson for the vice presiden
cy: "I am very glad that Mr. Stevenson
has been indorsed by the populists.
He Is thoroughly committed to the
principles set forth In the Kansas City
platform, and deserves the support of
all who believe In those principles. To
have nominated anyone else would
have weakened the ticket. The pop.l
Itrt organization will profit rather thun
suffer by this evidence to place the
triumph of principles above partisan
ship." The democratic congressional conven

ABOUT HOG CHOLERA.
How To Render the Hoes Immune
From Hog Cholera.
To many persons this may seem im
possible, but we assure you It can be
done In perfect safety If you only da
it the right way. We do not advise an
attempt to Immunize a mixed herd a
herd of all sizes and ages. We advise
nly rendering young pigs Immune after,
the sows and the balance of the herd
have already had the cholera. The pro.
per time to render pigs Immune is
when they are about one month old.
Our Plan. Put one or two sick pigs
Into the pen with your pigs. Your pigs
will take the cholera. Have them so
arranged that every one will come In
contact with the sick pigs, and every
one will take the disease at the same
time. Let them run together two or
three days; but. In the meantime, keep
the pigs and the sows on very short
feed. They will become hungry and
wll leat their medicated food when you
are ready to commence treatment.
After the sick pigs have run with the
well ones two or three days then de
stroy them. It Is best to burn therm
DUnlfect the ground they run on. By
this time the well pigs will have the
disease well set In their systems. On
the fifth day after' the well pigs weri
exposed to the disease, begin a thor
ough course of treatment with the
Rnoddy Remedy, Just as If they were
sick. Treat both pigs and sows for
seven days, or until they take enougri
medicine to put their systems thor
oughly under its Influence. When you
see their discharges black and look
like they had been eating charcoal, amt
If they have taken the amount of med.
Iclne prescribed In article No. 3 In our
booklet, they are safe.
In this way the pigs will have tho
cholera, but the remedy being given
them In their feed, and through tho
milk of the sow Just before the time for
tbe disease to develop In them, It will
prevent the disease from making them
sick. The action of the remedy is cer
tain and will never fall when the pre
scribed amount of the medicine Is pro
A hog may have cholera while his
system Is under the Influence of the
remedy, but the disease will not make
him sick. He will be hearty and thrifty
all the time, and no one can tell front
his looks that he has the disease. After
a few days the disease will leave him
and he will never have It again. Any
practical farmer can make this a com
plete success In every esse. We have
made this test often and know It l
perfectly safe to undertake. We shall

ested parties. The Dr. J.
