LONDON , Sept. 24. A dispatch from
Shanghai , dated today , says : Captain Tang ,
commander of the Uhliuse warship Chlen
Yuen , which was sunk In the engagement
off the Yalu river , Is among the saved.
The Ililtlih Hteamir Irene , from Hamburg ,
loaded with large quantities of munitions of
war Is safely arrived at Taku and has landed
her cargo.
It Is understood the governor of Manchuria
Is concentrating all the troops raUeJ In that
piovlnco upon Mukden and that on the route
toVIJil e\tenslve earthquakes are being
lalsed. The levies are composed of hardy
7iorlh Chinamen and are excellent material ,
but they were badly armed , only about 4,000
of them having gocd military rifles fur
ther supplies , however , are being hurried up
fiotn the southern arsenals The GhlnesB
force on the Yalu river Is estimated at 2,800.
Many ot thesu are raw levies and also ara
badly armed. The loss ot Held guns , rifles
nnd ammunition at Plug-Yang has greatly
embarrassed the Ohlntso war department
It Is recognized a battle must bo fought
mi the Yalu and the Chinese ara strainIng -
Ing oviry ntrve to retrlsvcs the disaster
nt Ping-Yang. Etiruppan ollkers here doubt
whether Mukden Is really the Immediate ob-
Jpctlve point of the Japanese. It is consld-
cicd tunic probable that If they attack WIJu
the Japanese will mnke a descent from the
fcci upon Neil Chwung with an expedition
If llila muvo should ba siicivjssftilly made , the
Japanese would till the Chinese main line
of communication and could attack the Yalu
army In the rear. Ncu Chwans ? In the pos-
KCHHlon of Ihe Japaneiu would form a bislt
fop a movement upon .Mukden , or upon Pekln
itself , and the fotcca landed there could co-
operatu with the army advancing from Coren.
This 1st the plan credited by experts to Klehl Yamagata.
The island of Yaltantan , In Corcan biy ,
IIILK beun made a coaling store and station
fiom which Ihe Japanese can keep constant
watch upon the mouth of the gulf of Pe-Chl-
I.l nlno Japancsa gunboits being stationed

montliR With regard to the cimpilgn , hi
thought everything pointed In the dlrectlor
ot a Japanese march toward T'ikin Beyom
that he was not Inclined to say much. Per
nunally he believed the war would terminal )
before long "You may depend upon It , "
lie said , "that Japan will forca matters ti
u flnlHh before November , when the gulf
of Pe-Chl-LI nnd Uau-Tonir. . are frozen over
Toil Mill probably BOOH hear of another grea

expect something Important. "

written a letter to the Sporting Times re
garding the complaints of unfair treatment
by come of the Americans who took part In
( ho International pigeon shooting contest.
Ho siiys that early In the summer Captain
Money asked the committee to allow certain
American sportsmen to compete In the In
ternational c.ntcst. When they arrived the
dllllculty of handicapping them was ex
plained , and Captain Money suggested that
the Americans should shoot at their dis
tance , which would satisfy them. ThU

Heretofore the flritiK In the democratic
btato campaign has been from Hie picket line.
Last night the Douglas county delegillon to
the democratic state convention met and
sounded the charge , which will begin lo-
moirovv. The delegation met at the Hoard
of Trade rooms for the purpose ot conferring
and discussing a few things The meeting
was railed to order by C. J. Sin j the , and
Immediately theieafter J. W West was
chosen clnlrman. Dan llonln was c elected
to act as scrgcant-at-arms and see that none
but delegates remained In the room. In or
der to determine who were delegates the roll
was called , aid those whose names were
not called were Invited to cool their feet
upon the outside. Then , after selecting Dave
Shanahan to keep the records of the meet
ing , the work of Iho evening was begun
It was decided that Douglas county should
nsk for the honor of providing the temporary
chairmnn of the convention , and lid P. Smltli
will be the irnn supported Douglas count )
will also present the name of Absolam Wag
goner as member of the committee on cre
dentials The question of who should be
members of the state central committee wai
also discussed , and Lee Ilnrclinnn and J. J ,
O Connor were "elected for the two plaeei
allotted lo Douglas county
Then the meeting decided that It wanted
Douglas county ( o fuinlsh the chaliman ol
the stale central committee , and C. J
Sm > the will be pushed for that position
All means possible will be u J to secure
this position for Mr Smvthe , us he Is one
ot Ihe trusted Drvan leaders and the Uryai
men are not going to leave any stones un
turned to got their chief into iho Unltci
States senate
A delegate secured tip floor and began tc
remark that something should be done U
secure the wlthdiavval of I ) Clem Dcaver
populist , from the congressional race , bill
tliii delegation was not ut that time deallnp
In nutters pertaining to the cotigicbslonul
fight , and the delegate was called to order
Liter however the same question under i
disguise was presented to Ihe meeting. /
motion was made that a committee be ap
pointed to confer with the populist state am
congressional committees and u heated discus
sion at once arose The discussion showei
clearly that the Sentiment of the Dougla' '
coiintv delegation Is for the endorsement 01
oi.tilght nomlnitlon of Tudge Holcomb. bu
theie was n fear that the appointment o
such n committee would result In harm tc
both Holcomb and Br > an It was supgestei
that If such a commute' was appointed am
It leported hack something that was us
agreeable It would catirc trouble During tin
discussion a delegate arose and announcei
boldly that if such a committee was ap
pointed it did not matter a whjt lo his wan
delegation what It reported back. His -vvari
WB.B for Holcomb fifgt , last ami all the time
This statement was received "with a burst o
applause Jlmt , shook the Board * of Trad
building. A delegate BiiKKi'steil Ouit semi
action be taken looking toward the snppor
of ex-Governor Ilovd. but that part of th
campaign was not under discussion and n <
action was taken In the premises The dele
Rate Insisted that Hojd expected some nctloi
of thU kind but It was clearly demonstiate <
that It v.ould be unwise lo discuss this mat
ter at tills lime In the midst of the dcbdl
a motion was made to table the motlo
looking toward the appointment of a confer
nce committee and It was Immediately car
The delegates then adjoui ned During Hi
conversation when tcok place after the meet
Ing adjourned the Holcomb sentiment wa
e\en moio manifest than during the meet
Ing If there were tiny delegites who wer
not In favor ot making HoUomb the nomine
of the democratic party they did not malt
their presence manifest.
"We are not popul sts " remarked a dele
gate , 'but we are foi Ilolcomb just the saint
If by nominating him we can break the hoi
the railroads have en this state we woul
be shirking our duty as democrats If we dl
not do BO" And the delegate's sentiment
were approved b > all who heard him.
The latest figures BVB ! Hryan an overwhelming
whelming majority In the convention Ther
are st II twenty-six counties ( o hear frcrr
and these counties have 45 votes Allow In
the anti-Bryan wing all of those , Ilrya
still has the comfortable majority of 2'
His followers feel sife with thla number c
voles behind him , confident that the nil
road wing of the democracj cannot buy thpi
all up with promises of federal positions an
railroad passes , So far as repoited 3S1 dele
gates have been Instructed to support llrja
and his 1C to 1 policy , ind 13. > delegate
have been elected by the machine Of thl
135 there are seventy-five who are liifctructe
for Hryan , but this Is regarded as only
subterfuge , as the-y want lo build a platfori
that will Ut him fall to the ground Tal
Ing all the figures Into consldeiatlon tli
Hian men are feeling quite well , but the
are still afraid that the rllroad wing will a
tempt to "turn a trlrk" on them.
"They are a tricky lot , ' say the llrjan mei
"nnd we'll have to watch them fiom tli
time the delegates begin to come In nut
the reinvention la over They have the nit
chine and the rallioads to back them. '
The failure tu fooner announce the rate
for thcxe attending the convention Is looke
upon by Ihe silver mon as a trick but Chali
man Martin disavow K any such Intention li
Bays the state central committee arrange !
for reduced rates some time ago , and tin
the failure to announce them was an ovc ;
sight both of the committee and the ral
roads When this Is told to the Bryan me
they wink and look wise
As chairman of the state central comml
tee , Kuclld Martin will call the coirvcntlc
to order , and then there- may appear the fin
signs of war. AH a general rule , when
state * convention meets the central comml
tec selects the temporary chairman Hi
the democratic state * central ( onimltlce wl
not select the temporary chairman this > ea
The Dryau men are too sharp to allow ar
such thing ax that to be foisted upon then
The-y propose to have H friend In the dial
not a tool of the railroads and admlnlstn
Tonight theie will be a caucus of all tl
lliyan . .delegates who reach town In tlm
The caucus Is called for the purpose of K
letting a man to act as permanent chai

There U also a feeling that It would be

reception here this afternoon The spacious
ojrra house was crowded to overflowing ;
principally by business men nnd farmers.
Ilio senator was In good voice and made a
masterly and convincing argument It wua
not a set sp cch , but ho de-alt with thw inu -
tlcns that are most prominent before the
IKxiplo of this district , vvhcru Oencrnl
U'eaver Is trj Ing to rldo the poptill t-demo-
ciutlc horse Into congress with such appar
ently slim prospects. The delivery was In
tliiit simple , concise and businesslike man
lier that apperls to the good sense of tha
Hvciagu well-informed cltbon. The senaUr
coi fined himself mostly to the financial
question The Omalii phtfonn of the popu-
Iltts was taken up und handled as it Ints
nevir been handled In this se-ctlon before.
Ii. opening , ho outlined the progress ot
our country from the -limit the republican
paity came Into power In 1SGO until 1R9I.
Thb census of 1SCO disclosed _ an aggregnlo
wraith , Including slaves , of { 16000000,000 ;
that of 1870 , with the war's devolution of
four yv rs and excluding slaves an property ,
disclosed nn nggicgate wealth ot J.ttooo,030.- )
Oi 0 , that of 1880 nearly { 44,000,000.000 , anil
that of 1S30 , $ G5 000,000.000. The develop
ment from 1860 to IbOO wan marvelous , the
Itciease In ten vears being one-tlilrA moro
than nil the wealth of the Unltwl States
thlity years before The wealth pir capita
more than doubled In thirty sears and the
Increase from 1880 to 1SSO was $1B9 per
r/iplta , or about 19 per cent , whilst the popu
lation In the same p.rlod InTea'-i-d 2f per
Let us compare Iowa vvllh three typical
manufacturing states. Massachusetts. Con
necticut and Itlio.lp Island as to Indebted
ness The debt per ciplta of MiisMichUBptts
was In 3SOO $144 , nnd of llhoilo Island ; 10C ,
an against lov.a of $104.
Now as to the debt eoinpaieil vvllh the
valu" of proiwrty. The debt of MuMaclm-
sctts Is 28 SI per cent of Connecticut 24.67
per cent , and of Uho.lo Island IK 87 per cent ,
whilst that of Iowa Is Jl 'JO pei cent. Tills
Includes all debts The three Blairs llrst
mentioned ar > three of the oilgliiul thirteen
colonies , Massachusetts running1 lurk to Ply
mouth Hock , and all these ttates having tlio
accumulations of generations of time as re
spects ihclr weslth and production , and hav
ing the advantage of I > | IIK upon Ihe Atlantic
seaboard -with th' commerceof ( he world at
their doors , whilst sixty > ea.rn ago Indian
tribes roamed over moro than onehalt of
Iowa , and the state Is leas tifty year *
old. Our wealth Increated in lhe o ten years
$ ' ' 66,000,000 , or SJ SO , whilst Ihi wealth ot
Massachusetts Increased $180,000,000 , , or 7
per cent
On the- question of the heavy mortgage In
debtedness in Iowa Senator Alljson summed
up by tnklnff census figures tor authority ,
allowing that 91 per cent of Iowa mortgagea
were given for thajiurpoiso ot securing profit * ,
of acquiring wealth and frn purchase money ,
while the average life or un Iowa morf Du
Is but four and one-naif } frrf , and of the
mortgages given ! > 5 per cent were glve-n to
citizens of Iowa , showlim sales from one-
farmer to another.
On the money qujstlon Senator Allison
saidVe have now mo e money In the
country per ciplta than at any prior time in
our history Some tiny refute this stnte-
1 incut , saying that dur ng the war large quan
tities of paper monev wore Issued , but this
vvau Interest bearing , and vvaa returned as
soon ns any Interest was accumulated. It
Is claimed free coinage Is needed In the
United States Th s Is believed by some re
publicans , many democrats anil all populists ,
but the populists believe this as an Incident ,
not as a reality I wouldlie glad to have
free coinageof allvsr were It not for the
fact that I think I know that fire-it cal-
1 anfltles and great distress would follow.
Why should we open our mltiU ? We would
Increase our money biipply would wtV
I have now $ (500.000,009 ( In gold coin and the
1 same in silver nln Tlie first effect of free
coinage would be to carry gold lo a premium
and ( o take the $000000090 of gold out of
the United StTtr-3 The value ot the $600-
000,000 of sliver now In circulation vvouM
be diminished 35 to 40 pjr cent , equivalent
to about $240000000 Would we Increase the
amount of clrculitlng in til hi in b > free coin
age ? We might probably In ten or fifteen
years. Mexico has frse Coinage of silver and
gold and has a production of $15,000,000 to
? 10 000,000 of Mlvor a year , but altogether
has a sliver circulation ot about $50,000,000. $
The bulk of Mexico'H silver IB marketed as
