New York. (Special.)- William J.
Brian's reception by . person In
Madison Square garden tonight was' all
that bit reception at thta place four
f ears ago waa not. Then the applause
waa meager and fainter than the sig
nals of disapproval; tonight the enor-
mous aadience applauded the every ut
terance of the speaker. Four years ago
Bryan read his address; tonight he
talked in an offhand, heart-to-heart
way. Four years ago a Urge part of
, , the audience left the hall before Bryan
had finished; tonight the people yelled
for more when th speaker showed
signs of quitting, and refused to listen
to the preliminaries in their desire to
have him begin. The brilliant calcium
light of the public favor in which Bry
an stood tonight was reflected on Rlch
. ard Croker, representing Tammany,
. which four year ago was the Nebras
kan's enemy.
The principal point or resemblance
was that tonight, as st bis previous ap
pearance, Bryan swerved not a hair's
breadth from the line of argument
mapped out by him in his Nebraska
home, without consultation with East
ern leaders, and threw no sop to sec
tional favor.
The Madison Square garden meeting
was but the first of four held tonight
From the rostrum of the big ball he
went to a stand erected just outside
at Madison avenue and Twenty-fourth
street, from there to Tammany hall and
thence to Cooper Union. The people
who tucceded in securing admission to
any one of the three meetings were but
a small fraction of those who surged
through the streets around the place ot
meeting. From place to place Bryan'
carriage waa followed by a shouting
multitude anxious to catch a glimpse
of the man toward whom the democ
racy of New York has so changed in
four years. '
While every sentence was being ap
plauded within Madison Square garden
the tower of the building was trans
formed into a fountain of multi-colored
fire shooting high into the heavy clouds,
and from other stands near by rockets
were being exploded with gatling' gun
rapidity. The Tammany chief had giv
en the fireworks committee carte
blanche, and all explosive that could
b used effectively were touched off.
By means of the pyrotechnics the Tam
many treasury was lightened about 110,
000. While nearly 150 bands had been
engaged, there was no general parade.
Individual clubs in endless number
ked up in the adjoining thor.
were b.

every pen-on in the audience was armed
with a flag. The fn demonstration f

Mr. Stevenson entered the hall and the'
demonstration was prolonged. Mr. Cro
ker took a seat at a small table and
coldly surveyed the crowd. . His ayes
rolled over the sea ot faces in front of
him and to the topmost galleries. Then
he looked over toward Mr. Bryan with
a quick smile and nod of satisfaction.
A few moments later he arose, took up
the huge mallet provided as a gavel and
rapped for order. Order did not come.
He waited for the enthusiasm to spend
itself and again rapped this time with
better success. In a word he appoint

ago opposed the election of Mr. Bryan,
chairman of the meeting. Mr,. Shepard
produced a bundle of manuscript, and

years ago he gave the cue for a chorus
of applause, and when he said that Mr.
Bryan had refused to take the shortei
road to power by becoming all thingf

When Bryan stepped to the front rail
the second notable demonstration of the
night began and lasted nearly as long
as the first. After he had obtained per
fect alienee, standing with his hand
raised .and was saying "Ladies and gen
tlemen," some one in the center of the
audience exploded a flashlight bomb

Colonel Bryan's address tonight dif
fered in no material point from his pre
vious addresses In the campaign. It
was rather a general emphasizing of ail
that be has said.

spreading the celebration over the en-
t're cliy. Every man in the Tammany
ranks was out doing his assigned share
In the demonstration.
Colonel Bryan arrived at the Grand
Central at 2:55 over the New York Cen
tral road. Although there had been a
special police force appointed at the
instigation of Mr. Croker, the mob took
bodily possession of the candidate the
moment he stepped from bis train
Hack drivers, railroad employes and a
number of others who do not figure on
the roll of Tammany shook his hand
before the reception committee got to
him. With an athletic rush Bryan bolt
ed through the crowd and reached for
the extended hand of Richard Croker.
When - Colonel Bryan reached New
York ominous clouds hung In the north,
and within a few moments after he had
reached hit hotel a storm of consider.
AM force broke. A driving rain del
uged the streets for a quarter of an
boot, the wind meanwhile blowing at
high velocity. Later the rain settled
into a steady drizzle, which lasted an
hour and which was folowed by a raw,
cold wind from the west. The promoters
of the demonstration feared a repeti
tion of the bad weather during Bryan's
Isit four years ago. About o'clock
however, conditions improved some

The policy of coercion which was a
characteristic feature of the republican
campaign In 1896 is again in evidence
this' year. Prominent among the rail
road companies adopting this policy is
a Pennsylvania company which ia en
deavoring to control its employes in
the interest of the republican party.
During the recent C. A P. Veterans aa-

company caet aside all pretense of
fairness in politics and Superintendent
Screven, in a speech to the veteran
employes, toid them how they should
vote this fall. Mr. Screven said:
"Vote for Mr. McKinley and you will
be doing what your employers, the C.
A P. railroad, wants you to do. If you
desire to hold your positions, vote for
the re-election of President McKlniey.
If you do not, and he should be de
feated, the connequences will be upon
your 'own head." This Is not a mere
intimation, or even an emphatically ex
pressed desire, It is a direct threat, a
brutal attempt upon the part of a man
employing a large number of laborers
to coerce them into voting in a cer
tain manner.
The people of this country must real
ize, and the sooner the better, that
wherever and whenever the employers
of labor endeavor to control the bal
lot of their employes, liberty la endan
gered and government will become a
plutocracy If the movement Is not
checked. The Implied threat back of
the statements made by large corpora
tions is that if their plan of govern
ment, which looks toward the uplift
ing of the classes at the expense of the
masses. Is Interfered with, they will
pull their money out and produce a
panic that labor may starve itself Into
subjugation. What Is needed with
these people Is a strong hand like
Bryan's to teach them that prosperity
and power rests with the creators the
masses and not with the drones.
Brawn and brains make the wheels
move, and not European stockholders.
or those who ape royauy, oeiieving
that the way to reach the masses Is
through their stomachs.
With a monarchist like Hay to con
duct our foreign policy, Hanna to look
after labor and a check book for tho
politicians, it Is time for the common
people to look after their own rights,

Moans Mors Aggrosalvo Attitude In
Chinas Affairs,
Yokohama. tSpeclal.) The resigns
lion of the Japanese cabinet and the
probable coming Into power of Marquis
I to Is the theme of the hour. The
change came as a surprise, although
it was deemed inevitable in the not
distant future. It was doubtless due to
Marquis Itu himself, who by no means
yet known got his party In proper trim
for harmonious and successful work.
Although the latter is well organized
it Is made up of many Incongruous
and warring elements, and early trou
ble is n evicted for it, especially is
view of the distribution of the offices
before it is brought to any sort of dis
cipline. V
The ostensible cause of th sudden
upheaval In politics here Is doubtless
the real one, namely, the necessity
which has arisen for a more decided
strenuous foreign policy in view of the
situation In China. It Is generally felt
that Japan has thus far kept herself
too much in the background In the ne
gotiations progressing on the neighbor
ing continent and that the time hat
come for her to assert herself; her em
inent services In the recent rescue ot
the legations, and above all her su
perior knowledge of what can and
ought to be done In China, all entitling
her words and counsel to be held in
greater weight than that of any other
Marquis Ito is the only man to whom
the country can turn In this emergency.
as has been the case for many years
past whenever an Important crisis has

ent case !s to b found in the fact that
Marquis Ito is now credited with strong
pro-Russian tendencies.

coal strike. The demands cf the miners,
formulated In convention in 8 rantun,
were conceded, and, in conformity with
Ibe decision reached, the Heading Coal
and Iron company at once issued a no
tice to lis mine employes. The con
cession made is a positive victory for
the striking miners.
It was predicted after the conference
that the mines will be In operation be

be. some delay In bringing the last of
the Independent operators Into line, but
it Is expected that in the: course of the
