was shot twice by Simon Carey , both
wounds being very serious. There has
been ill feeling between the men for
some time , but no one expected such a
tragic outcome , and the news of the

citement in the town. Both men
have their friends but there is univer
sal regret over the occurrence.
At this writing entries are coming in
thick and fast at the state fair , andthe
distant points from which many of

a great demand for space , and the in
dications are that before the fair opens
even the smallest space will be at a
premium.

to receive from your hand the per

not the least gratifying of these are

BEYAN MOVING WEST.
MR. CLEVELAND'S HOME GIVES
HIM AN OVATION.
Greatest Demonstration Since the Madi
son Square Garden Notification Meet-
Inc lie Talks About Mexican Dollars
nd the Old Soldiers A Change In the
Boute of Ills Tour.
IJryan ar Buffalo.
Buffalo , N. Y. , Aug. 29. Appar
ently the entire population of Buffalo ,
' the home of Grover Cleveland , turned
its footsteps last night towards Music
hall , where Candidate Bryan addressed
1 4,000 people , as many as could be
packed within the four walls , while
! unnumbered thousands tilled the
s
neighboring streets. The day in Buffalo -
\ falo had been the greatest ovation
Mr. Bryan has received in ' 'the ene
my's country , ' and the night meeting
which ended it attracted almost , if
not quite , as many would-be auditors
as the notification in Madison Square
garden.
A reception was held for two hours
in the hotel parlors in the afternoou ,
when Mr. and Mrs. Bryan shook hands
with a constant line ot callers , which
still stretched along half a block out
side the building when the doors were
closed upon the last comers.
Mr. Bryan was escorted to the hall
by the ' 'Cleveland Democracy , " the
city's oldest party organization , and
by ward clubs bearing torches. The
. line of march was along half a mile of
Main street , crowded almost as thick-
I ly as was the hall , and red fire and
\ . cannon announced his coming. When
j j Mr. Bryan appeared upon the stage ,
. escorted by State Committeeman John
C. Shcehan , the police were powerless
' to control the audience , and swarm
ing down to the front , several hun
dred men took possession of the seats
reserved for the clubs which escorted
Mr. Bryan.
Mr. Bryan said , among other things :
"We propose a financial policy. Our
opponents propose nothing. Without
daring to defend the gold standard ,
without daring to set a time when
you shall escape it , they preach the
doctrine of 'grin and bear it , ' and
offer no hope to the human race. We
aslc for the free coinage of silver at
the ratio of 10 to 1. \Ve have had it
iu the past , and we ask that the
American people shall do their own
legislating for themselves without
waiting for the aid or consent of any
other nation , and wo have had it in
the past We believe that the free
and unlimited coinage of silver at 10
to I will maintain the parityvbetween
gold and silver.
"And here let call
right me atten
tion to something which I have
learned since I came into your city.
I am told that some of your mer
chants , in order to give an object les
son to the people , have been offering
to urnish Mexican dollars for 50
cents as part of the change when you
buy goods. My friends , let me give
you an opportunity to test the sincer
ity of these people. Let me give you
a suggestion. * They tell you that if
we had the free coinage of silver that
the American dollar would be as little
as the Mexican dollar is now. They
tell you that if we had the free coin
age of silver , silver will not rise in
value. Let me give you a suggestion
by which you can test them. When
ever a man offers you a Mexican dollar
lar for 50 cents , you take it , and then
take it to your savings bank and ask
them if they will take it on deposit
for : 50 cents and give you a written
agreement 1 to give you a Mexican dollar
lar the next day after the inaugura
tion of the next president.
"Our opponents have said that the
soldiers \ who are receiving pensions
must be protected against the free
coinage ' of silver. They would have
us believe that these financiers who
are \ insisting upon the god ? standard
| are insisting upon it for fear the sold
iers ; drawing a pension may suffer by
the abandonment of the gold stand
ard. 1 They forget that those who were
soldiers | remember the times we had
