for a single-handed discussion this evening.
About 1,000 persons collected 111 the High

first no wanted silver restored and plenty
of It. ( Cheers from the Independents. | The
bpcalccr did not hint at any way which would
cnahlo ono to cot a dollar without earning It
or putting up collateral. * A reduction in rail
road ratrs was demanded and the justice of
this demand was urged by the statement
that Iowa roads netted the owners flOO per
year for each ijiile. Kansas roads JOOJ and
Nebraska roads t'J.GOO. Ho suggested that
iho Indepciidcutparty would tauo everything
peed within ri-acli. The old parties were
abused aud accused of robbing the people.
As t th Tnrlir.
The tariff as applied to sugnr was used as
on Illustration lo show the evils of protec

tnat American workmen receive the bonclits

He suid lha ! the government only paid tbo
old soldiers Jl.'l a month for services in de
preciated currency and refused to malm up
the acllclency in times of prosperity. Ho
cave the republican party credit for only
stealing half ilia soldiers' wages while the
democrats would tiavo stolen all of it bad
they boon in power. About the only way to
correct existing evils , ho thought , wai to
fall In line with tno independents. The
great dcmuid was for moro money but the
drill of Mr. Van \Vyck' remarks iudicatoj
that ha wanted votes worse than dolKus.

JudgeCrotiuso apncarcd cool and dignified ,
Mnrtlug out In reply to Van Wyck , suyincr
that ho WOH gratified to sco so many well
Orcsied und apparently well fed farmers
coming into town driving good horses aud
riding in beautiful carriages. This did not
look Ilka calamity haa overtaken the Ne
braska people. H-J said that his fnend Van
\\yck had uoen nominated in a circus tent
and that ho had Uucn the part of a clown in
tbo campaign , Crounso could not amuse' ho
peoulo , but could give them something to
think about. Ho was not hern to play upon
the prejudices of any ignorant person und
deplored the idea of auybody following a
false cod like Van Wyck. He und been an

Van Wyck seeks to hit tue soldier by saving
that tno government paid him $13 in de
preciated currency and refused tomako it up
to him. 1 waul to say tbat no patriot went
out to bo shot at for the money that was in
it. No man was a patriot who demanded
moro than the poor government could give
him. Hisses came from a few independents ,
to which Judco Crounso said ! "You never
fired a gun or cUe you were a bounty
\Vltli Jtcfrreiico to the Lumber Turin" .
The free lumber bugbear wus drawn out
of Its lair. "I am in favor of the lumber tar
iff us It is now , " said the speaker.You
can rail acres of logs from Canada free , but.
a tariff is imposed on manufactured lumber.
I nm In favor of American workmen getting
tbo bcnotlt ,
"I don't see by what authority Van Wyck
abuses the rich man. Ho speaks of
tramps. A number of years ago sev
eral persons tramped into Otoo county
and pre-empted hundreds of acres of land
and after swearing to this and that the titio
to the land was vested in C. H. Van Wyck.
Ho don't say nnytbing about that matter
because his party platform provides that all
lands belong lo the people , etc. Tbo Idea
that all publjc men aru scoundrels is a fabri
cation. I wonder what kind of associates my
iriend bas had. "
The alllanua record In the last session of
tl.o legislature wa ? criticized. The bills in
troduced in the llgislaturo for which the
state prayed were not parsed , bo assorted.
The applause was loud and came from a
great majority of the crowd at the conclu
sion. Juugo Croucso , by his gentlemanly
and scholarly arguments , carried weight
with the audience , and the only interruptions
during tbo aebato came troui a lew Inde
General Van Wyck In closing said tbat
tludgo Urounso had gene over a long record
and had misquoted him. Ho would rattier
have it read Irom the record. Ho sold the
mil road bill ho voted for was the best bill
over introduced , and concluded with a gen
eral reference to railroad legislation.

frequently applauded during the course of
the delivery of his address , but It was no
ticeable tbat it became weaker and weaker
as his friends recognized bis inability to copa

In hU closing Mr. Halner was brilliant ,
and willy and took tbo wind out of Dech's

MINPEX , Neb , Oct. S. [ Special lo THE
BEE. ] A few weeks ago It was generally
conceded tbat McICelghan bed a walk-away
for congress in lha Fifth district , but us the
campaign progresses it is evident his oppo
nent , Mr. Andrews , is passing him
on the road to congress , The series of
joint donates between Iho two candidates
bas forced McICotgban's followers IT turn
out and hear bata sides of thn question ,
which Is decidedly against tbo independent
candidate. Tbo change 01 sentiment and of
conditions bolween Iho present campaign
ana that of two years ego when McICoighau
procured his seat in congress Is very marked
and furnishes n theme far conversation
among all classes of voters in the district.
Two years ago tbo district which sent Me-
Keigban to congress comprised twenty-seven
counties , casting a total of fi'J.NW voles , 3(5,104 (
of whlcn wont lo McKclghan. The now
Fifin , m which the contest is pow going on ,
consisis of cigbteen counties , with a total
vote two years ngo of : ii,7Sl > , of which Me-
ICcighan pot 1SCU ( In sixteen counties. Hall
and 1'erklps being nowcountles in iho Fifin ,
not included in iho old Second. It the latter
two counties In IS'JO the vote stood :
For HIchards , 1.273 ; Hoyd , 1,72" ; pro
hibition , 1,09.1. U will be seen that
in the old district the rnajorliy
for McIColgnun was nfi.17 , or about one-
ninth of the toial vole cast for concrosstnun
in tbo district , as it then slooJ. In the
district as at present comprised , McKeiirban
polled a majority in IS'JJ of 3,703 , which is
just about the same per cent ha get in the
old district. So he has trained nothing by
the changnof dlurlui lines , taking the 1690
vole as a basis.
Not Sunporinl ' ) ' Democrat * .
Two years ago ha had the endorsement , not
only in name but. in fact , of the democrats of
his district , who rccocnlzed In him n Mmon
pure democrat sailing under un alias , and
tnoy gavu him their undivided support. In
his present cnnoldaoy , bo received
the nominal endorsement of a democratic
convention , after a light which has never
bean lost sight of1 for a moment since lha
campaign began. Indeed it U so bitter and
has been waged so relentlessly thai demo
cratic Andrcwsi clubs have been or
ganized In various towns in the
district , notably in Hastings , where
a club of soventy-flvo members n
doing aotlvo work , McICeiehUn , having
been driven oy his opponent in ftmt do'jato
to dotlno uls position , seeing tbat his former
democratic friends were deserllutr him , has
of late taken every occasion to Might the
democrats ana moke himself moro solid
with ibo populisu. His attitude on this
point has caused leadlotr democrats In every
county In tbo district to openly dcnounco
him and declare ( heir ialeuilon lo support
and vole for Andrews.
Even members of democratic commltoet are
out at work against McKeichan , At Mc-
Cook , lloldrogo and Hastiucs tbo straight
democrats are making special efforts to encompass -
compass his defeat.
TUB BEE correspondent bos also Inter
viewed a number of tbo leading "third
party , " or prohibition adherents , who have
heretofore thrown their votes , away for a
principle , and , without a sluelo ex
ception , tbey tay I hey will fall
into line for Audiows tnis year.
Thu ministers , especially , are outspoken on
this point and are usiug their Influence to
induce their congregations to drop prohibi
tion , so fur as congressman Is concerned , and
vote for Andrews. Should Andrews secure
the prohibition vote it alone would overcome
Mcltclxban's majority. Hut that Is not l II.
There is a little army of real eslaio deal
ers la ibo towns of the district , many of
thorn formerly independents , who now see
tno mischief this calamity howl has worked
to their business in discouraging Im
migration , and lo the pcoplo gener
ally in retarding the Development of
tlio coountry. Ono independent real
estate man told THE Den correspondent
that bo would like to got aflldavtts of farmers
in his county , selling forth under oath what
they have accomplished and send circulars
cast ; "but , " Bald be , "it would civotbo Hole

Merits of the Cane.
Ho also said that in sptto of Ibo natural
results of a calamity doctrine as preacncd
by the populist candidates , iho hotels of all
tno towns in Iho western part of the states
are so tilled with lund hunters as to almost
crowd out the regular commercial
men wno , as rccular customers ,
usually have tbo preference. This clew
was folio wed up aud it proved to bo true.
In such lowns _ ai McCook , with good hotel
facilities , men and women coming in on lalo
trains have been obliged to sit in Iho stationer
or in iho parlors of the hotels , because all
Ihe rooms were taken by land hunters. They
are , as a rule , men with money who have
sold their farms further east and have como
west to buy cheaper land. In most cases
tnoy como in response to toilers from friends
bore who have told them the true state of
affairs. The best uf It is they are nearly all
Thaso facts are opening the eyes of moro
Intelligent independents so that they can see
tbo Injustice done them by iho acmogogic
loaders of tnolr party who , while howling
calamity for votes , are aamaping the stale
and pulling a blight on its future. Were
it not for the falsa reports sonl broadcast
by the populist oflico teekors tbo counties
of Iho Fifth congressional district would
now bo experiencing a boom such as was
never known In western NebrasKU. Sensi
ble farmers know IhU and will quietly vote
for Mr. Andrews when the time comes.
At iho joint debate at Mlnucu lasl
Wednesday evening an even Jo/en men
stood up In a body und pulled off their Mc
ICelghan badges In the presence of a crowd
and declared their intention of supporting n
young American , educated In American
schools , imbued with American ideas In the
matter of education , protection to American
labor and a sound financial policy , Instead ol
voting for KcIColgban tbo demagogue , who
has no settled convictions.
At tbo Mlnden meeting many farmers were
disgusted when McKelghan declared ho rep
resented tbo muscle aud brawn of the Ne
braska workltiKiuun and farmer. Knowing as
they did that ha never was guilty of doing a
day's work en tbo farm but Instead allowed
his wlfo to raise and harvest iho polaiocs for
the family while her husband lay around
