About 1,000 persons collected 111 the High school grounds this afternoon to hear the debate. The oocnlng speech of one hour was Klvcn to General Van \Vyck. and ho sUrted out by repeating the sior'.es of the disastrous condition oi affairs nmone the fanning clasi. Ho said that he , along with Judge ( Jrounso and others , Degnn to howl thirty years ago und that ho was silll Howling for reform In political measures which affect tno xvelforoof the people. 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 tion. Ho forgot to mention that rctlnod sugar - ' gar tins a high duty imposed on U and that iinno hut raw sugar is on tno free list and tnat American workmen receive the bonclits of Increased wages paid in refineries , Rock- ofollur and other wcallliy men uamo in for a thuro of condemnation. The low priio of wheat anil calllo was ultilbuU'il to olu piirty manipulation. 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. I'ro.porlty of tint 1'imner. 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 uniMiumopolUl when It was unpopular In NebrasKa aud voted to compel the Uulon I'uclllc to pay taxes on tbo lund which Van Wyck voted to praut the Union J'aclllc. General Van V.'yck's roconl In i-on.

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 Jumper. " \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 pendents. 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. MI ; sits.

Ho was greeted with applause as bo came to the staga and wus 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 with bis opponent. In hU closing Mr. Halner was brilliant , and willy and took tbo wind out of Dech's calamity howl. He showed lhat the misera ble condition pictured by Doch only existed lu hU morbid imagination. Ho was so rapturously cheered that ho was compelled to ask tbo vast audlonco to desist tbat ho might occupy the tuna in talking. The do. bate has given a strong impetus 10 repub licanism here.

SO CHANCE FOR M'REIGIIAN ' Facts Concerning the Political Situation in the Fifth District. DESERTED BY ALL THE DEMOCRATS I'ccullar Feature * of the Present Contest Independents ; Miliiirc3t I.lttlu Kntlmsl- iMiu FlKiiret That Apparently Settle the Oiiestlon III I'uvnr ol Anitrcus. 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 Iho parly wilh which I have iueulificd my self and It would raise a bowl1 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 republicans. 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 itcd Cloud , drunk. Leading citizens of all the senatorial and UgUlaltve districts in the Fifih congres sional have been visited by Tun Hr.u correspondent pendent and with but two or ihreo excep tions the same conditions obtain with refer ence to the senatorial and legislative tlckois. 1'reclncts In certain strong Independent counties , which two years ago did not cast n eluglo republican vote , or only two or tbreu nt most , now have republican clubs with twenty , fifty and In one case In particular sixty members. Two years ago , when .lohn 1'owera was advertised to speak at towns In the Fifth district , farmers drove for thirty miles through dust and heat to hear him , bringing ihelr families and dinners with them. Where Is tno enthusiasm now ) Were It not for tbo Joint debates the Independent candidates would not bs hoard as It is u notorious fact that tuny cannot get a crowd together. All this indicates something Some of tbo strongest independent counties have been polled and while many will not openly say whore they stand , u sufficient number have done so to show n republican majority. The opinloa Is freelyox pressed by democrats , re- publicaus ana conservative independents that MclColgban's chance for re-election bas gene glimmering. Anything to Defeat tlitrjlc ) > iihllcani.
