done at Jagersfontein, after an attack

OUR DEAR BRITISH COUSINS.
Are Robbing an American Company
Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 30 Harold
Verge, superintendent of the Orinoco
company's mines in Venezuela, arrived
here today. When he left three weeks
ago its officers were in daily expecta
tion of the annulment of the company's
land grant of 14,000,000 acres of land by
Dictator Castro, which came a few
days after he left. Mr. Verge says this
action is a part of a deep laid plan to
confiscate the American company's
property and turn the concession over
to an English syndicate, which has been
waging bitter war upon the Americans.
' United States Consul Loomis.he says,
has stood quietly by during the progress
of the Intrigue and made no protest.
This has encouraged Castro to go ahead
In the belief that there would be no
protest from the United States govern
ment, for which he has a wholesome re
gard. The action Is a great hardship
to the company, causing the suspension
of its operations and the abandonment
of a number of valuable sub-contracts.
Vigorous efforts will be made to have
the state department t!".a Ycnei'J

cers are robbing the government with
out apparent fear of discovery.
"While I was in Manila," said he, "a
transport unloaded a cargo of provi
sions tor the army. The cases were
dumped on the wharf. Most of the
goods consisted of canned stuff, and
all was marked 'Inspected' and 'con
demned.' The cargo was sold to a Chi
nese mandarin for 2 cents a can and
three days later, before being removed
from the wharf, the same goods were
sold for V cents a can. Moat of the
plundering is done by the commissary
officers and the thefts equal If not sur
pass the Infamy of the Spanish."

150,000 throats rang In William J, Bry
an's ears last night during his second
progress through the city and 50,000
persons listened to his appeal for their
support In 1900 In "the enemy's coun
try of 1896."
From a campaign excursion Into Con
necticut he returned to the scene of
his effort twelve days ago, when Tam
many rallied crowds of 46,000 to do him
honor. Last night three times that
number of men, women and children
assembled at the points where he was
to speak or massed themselves In the
streets through which he was to pass.
In Madison Square garden and park,
which had resounded the night before
with plaudits for McKinley and Roose
velt and groans for Bryan, the name
of the republican candidates were hiss
ed and Jeered at while Bryan was hailed
with acclamation. The outpouring be

aide, made a record-breaking manifesta
tion of popular Interest.
In Second avenue between Fifth and
Twenty-fifth streets, Mr. Bryan drove
through a mile of closely packed hu
manity. ' Even 'n the heart of a dis
trict of the city where his friends are
supposed to be least numerous, the
demonstration was remarkable.
STANDS BY SILVER.
Mr. Bryan had made up his mind to
take up the republican accusation con
tained In the accusation that he had
dodged free silver in the east. In his
speeesi in Cooper Union he declared
that he still stood where he stood four
years ago on the financial question, and
that he had not attempted to conceal
Nevertheless he Insisted that Imperi
alism was the paramount Issue.
While Mr. Bryan was making his
way through . cheering multitudes to
the smaller meetings arranged for him,
David B. Hill and Bourke Cockran were
holding the attention of the audience
of 12,000 which filled Madison Squaer
Garden. Mrs. Bryan sat in a box, made
conspicuous by flowers, directly oppo
site the platform from which her hus
band was to speak. Richard Croker oc.
cupled a box on her right.
Mr. Hill dwelt upon Mr. Bryan's un
questioned integrity and did not forget
to say a word for the democratic state
Mr. Cockran was greeted by tremen
Jous applause. He spoke for more than
in hour, being forced to kill time while
Mr. Bryan was at the Hoffman house
having his throat sprayed, which de
layed him half an hour.
The audience went wild, however,
when Mr. Cockran said:
"I opposed Mr. Bryan In this very
spot four years ago, when I believed
him to be wrong; I thank God for the
opportunity to support him here now,
when 1 beiicve is right.',' . . ?
Mr. Bryan arrived at 10 o'clock.
Great applause and mighty cheers pre
vented him from speaking for nearly
fifteen minutes. After the frantic shouti
for Bryan, the audience, which had
arisen all over the main floor of the
garden, turned Its bark upon him and
saluted Mrs. Bryan with a demonstra
inon as enthusiastic as that which had
been given to her husband. She looked
very much pleased, but a little embar
rassed by the tribute.
Mr. Bryan spoke clearly and was dis
tinctly heard. He took up in turn the
principles enumerated In the Kansas
City platform, devoting more or less
time to each In proportion as he re
garded them as more or less Important
He gave out a text from Proverbs:
