TIAMIlima , Nov. L The Hamburger
Nachrlcbti-n , the organ of Prince Bls-
jnarck , has another article on the subject
of the Russo-Gcrman treaty , which ter
minated In 1SOO , and the disclosure of which
by the Nachrlchtcn has created such a sen
sation In Europe. This article Is entitled
"Tho Russian Treaty" and described Prince
Bismarck's entente with Russia as a brll-
llun success of German statesmanship. The
article then proceeds to say : "We do not
has lost all value by the conclusion of the
had lor.t all value by the conclusion of the
Drellmnd treaty , nor will our allies share
this opinion. Reconciliation Is not un
known or undcslred by them. On the con
trary , it has boon noted that Germany al
ways employed the Russian entente to prevent - I
vent and settle differences betwe-en Russia
and Austria. Had Austria and Italy I
thought otherwise they would , during the
reign of Umpcror William I have made
representations on the subject. This was
never done , although they were aware of
our political relations , and a demurrer to un
entente with Russia would , despite all mil
itary preparations and bourse regulations ,
never have boon pre termlttcd at Berlin.
"Among the motives for our expose of
( the Russo-Gcrman relations , all of which
wo do net feel called upon to disclose. Is
tbo continual falsification of historical facts
by the clerical and liberal and even the
rcml-ofllclal press , with the dishonest pur
pose of making the government of William
I and of Bismarck responsible for nil pres
ent evils , e-speiclally the rupture of the for
mer favorable relations with Russia ; a rup
ture which certainly does not Improve Ger-
Iiubllsh the fact that the rupture was
mony's prsltlon In Europe. Therefore. WP
brought about during the administration of
General vcn Caprlvl , through his unquali
fied refusal of Russia's request for the con
tinuance of the entente. Against this au
thentic proof that the break with Russia
occurred under Vo.n Caprlvl , the Infamous
calumniation of Germany's policy under
"William I cannot be proved. Wo should
bo deemed more correct had an official doc
umentary explanation of truth been forth
coming , as in the case of the Ems dis
patch , and" we even now recommend this
The- reference to the Ems dispatch Is
doubtless duo lo the publication oa Prince
Bismarck's authority upon the eve of the
outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war of a
draft of a treaty between Russia and France ,
guaiantcclng to the cne country Its con
quests and permitting the other the an
nexation of Holland , a draft which Dls
marck claimed to possess , written by Mr.
Benedettl , the French Ambassador to Ger
many , with his own hand. The publication
of tbls secret document. bearlng date of the
end of ISCfi , raised a great parliamentary
storm lu Franco , and necessitated minis
terial explantlons. It was claimed in be
half of M. Denedcttl that the German
chancellor had dictated to the French am
bassador these ccndltlons of a future entente
tente- and had then put aside the plan to
bide his time for Its use.
VIENNA , Nov. 1. The Neule Frele Presse.
which published an Interview last week
from a correspondent at Hamburg , which
was supposed to have emanated from Prince
Dlsmarck. today saya it learns from a well
informed source that Dlsmarck may be Im
pelled In making his disclosures by a fear
that Germany will repeat the mistake of
1800 , by the eventual abandonment of the
support of Russia In favor of an entente with
Great Britain , which would be more danger
ous , an it would doubtless lead France to
obtain what she has hitherto been unable
to obtain , namely , an alliance with Russia
C * of which the enforcement against Germany
would only be a question of time and cir
cumstances. Another motive of Prince Bis
marck , the Neule Frclo Presse thinks , waste
to show Franco how little their relations
with Russia were due to themselves and how
much they were due to Germany's mistake-
In the treatment of Russli after the dismissal
, of Prince Dlsmarck for the chancellorship.
That the la'.tcr Is actuated by hatred of Von
Caprlvl , this journal thinks , Is an unten
able supposition , as Prince Dlsmarck has
not regarded Von Caprlvl as the moral author
of the rupture between himself and
the present emperor.
LONDON. Nov. 1. The Dcrlln correspond
ent of the Dally News reports he has learned
the German treaty with Russia was in no
wise as harmless as alleged , but was dis
loyal to Austria. "Prince Bismarck was
eager to come to terms with Russia. " says
this correspondent , "at Sklernlewlcs. where
the czar and Emperor WHIam 1 met , and
later In the Interview with M. Do Glcx. he
gave too warm an expression of his desire.
The Russian diplomat noticed this and raised
his price , the result being the agreement ,
which , It seems , contained clauses which
even now are unknown , but which prove
bad faith to Austria. In government * cir
cles It Is suspected that Bismarck's ultimate
object Is to dlssolyo the Drlebund as thu
- of Russo-Gerrnan . "

the Times says : M. Cochcry , minister of
nuance , has submitted to the Chamber a
bill to renew the privilege of the Dank
of France , which has been constantly shelved
as a dangerous question. The discussion will
be violent , as on the once hand there Is
the question of defending an Institution
which Is the soul of French finance , and on
the other hand the socialists will attack
the bank's privilege as a spoliation benefit
ing the plutocracy at the expense of the
masses. Stormy sittings are probable. The
abandonment of the tax on rentes Is now
definitive. M. Cochery will explain to the-
budget committee on Wednesday what he
proposes to substitute for It.

The republicans of Nance county
had their final rallies yesterday at
Fullcrton and last night at Genoa. The
parade here yesterday was n grand success.
It being by far the largrst during this
campaign. Ono hundred and fifty first
voters appeared on horseback , while over
200 carriages , driven by voters who have
done service before , brought up the rear.
Before the parade was dismissed the opera
house began filling and In less than ten
minutes standing room was at a premium.
Judge Wheedon of Lincoln delivered a fine
re-publican speech. Three hundre-d of the
boys went to Genoa In the evening to listen
to Hon. Gecrge D. Mclklcjohn. It was a
great day for the republicans or tills county.
GENOA , Neb. . Nov. 1. ( Special. ) Last
night fully 3.000 people assenible-d In Genoa
to show their enthusiasm for McKInley and
Hobart. It was the largest crowd ever seen
In the town. Special trains came from Ful
lcrton , Columbus and Monroe , bringing
torches and transparencies. A mammoth
tent , holding 2,500 people , could not near
contain the crowd. Hon. George D. Mclkle-
john was thi- speaker of the eveulng and his
masterly address was greeted with animated
applause. During the parade some thought
less boy allowe-d his torch to come In con
tact with the free silver banner , which was
stretched across the street , and It was
burne-d. The republicans regret very much
that It should have occurred , and the Genoa
Honest Mercy club will have a new one put
In Its place Monday morning.
YORK. Neb. . Nov. 1. ( Special. ) The
greatest jralltical demonstration ever held In
York county was held yesterday by the ic-
publlcans. The a.'tcrnofu parade was a
monster affair. Four bands furnished the
music and nearly 700 pe-ople marched to the
Inspiring strains. There were a number of
floata In line , tut the .one. which captured
the crowds was the representation of Dryan
In 'Cl , A little boy In a cradle. Industriously
pulling ct a huge bottle of milk through
ccveral yards of garden hot ? , was the chief
actor. On the same float a young soldlor
proudly carrying a musket represented McKinley -
Kinley In 'Cl. The parade was an hour In
passing. The speaker of the day was C.
J. Gree n of Omaha. The big tent held over
2,000 people on buth occasions.
NEBRASKA CITY , Nov. 1. ( Special. )

DOUBLE-HEADER AT FALLS CITY.
FALLS CITY. Neb. , Nov. 1. ( Special. )
Saturday night Falls City undoubtedly saw
the largest crowd In Its history. It being
the closing of the campaign with a repub
lican and democratic rally. It Is estimated
that 1C,003 people participated. The repub
lican parade formed on Chase street and
the democrats on Hnrlan , and both marched
north to the High school building. The
republicans reached there first and came
down Stone street. It was the grandest
sight ever witnessed In the city. The parade
contained floats , transparencies , women's
marching clubs , gun and flambeau clubs ,
etc. The lowest estimate Is that 5,000 people
wcro In line , cheering for McKInley uud
prosperity. A great number of people came
from Wymare , Pawnee City , Tecumsch ,
Humboldt , Salem , Duchard and all the
towns of this county sent delegations. After
the republican parade passed the democrats
came , but they wcro fewer In numbers.
After the parades disbanded Senator Thurs-
ton and A. C. Atkinson addressed the repub
licans and Senator Allen and Mr. Fulton , a
fre-e sliver republican from Pawnee , spoke
to the democrats. If one can judge by the
number of republicans In town Saturday
night McKInley will certainly carry Ne
braska. This was republican night.
ARLINGTON. Neb. , Nov. 1. ( Special. )

best meeting of the campaign here last
night under the auspices of the McKinley

parties , that has gretted any speakers at
this place this season. In a most masterly
and eloquent manner did the speaker ix-
posi * the- fallacies of Dryan and his mis
guided followers , holding the audience until
11 o'clock. Cheer after cheer greeted his
able efforts , and at tbo conclusion three
cheers were given each for McKInley , Ho
bart , the state , county and candidates that
fairly made the old hall ring. ' Even the
opposition seemed for the time being to
forget Itself and under the Inspiration of
patriotism , the mention of the old flag , our
candidates , an honest dollar , an opportunity
to earn It by giving us protection , reciproc
ity and McKInley as the standard bearer ,
they too helped swell the shout In a hearty
good way. The Glee club furnished 4he
music and came in for a full share of ap
plause. Judge Fawcett speaks here Monday

LINCOLN , Nov. 1. Mr. and Mrs. Dryan
reached their home In this city at 10 o'clock
today , after an absence of several weeks'
duration. In order to spend the day with
their children , It was necessary for Mr. Bryan
to depart from the rule which he has In
variably followed since hU nomination , of
not traveling on Sunday. They came from
Council Bluffs , where they spent last night
with friends , on their special train. coverIng -
Ing the distance In a little over an hour.
There were no stops or demonstrations ou
the way. There was quite on assemblage
of personal friends at Lincoln and the can
didate and his wife wcro welcomed by many
cordial handshaker. Immediately upon their
arrival they were ushered Into a carriage
and driven directly to their reslden.ce. Mr.
Bryan might have been anything but a presi
dential candidate , so quietly was the day
spent after reaching home. There were
a few callers , but they consisted for the
most part of fellow townsmen , and none of
them spent more than sufficient time to In
quire after the personal welfare of Mr. Dryan
and his wife.
Mr. Dryan confessed to all that he fell
In need of securing a good day's rest. He
accordingly retired early In the afternoon
and was still sleeping at 2 o'clock. Mm.
Bryan standing guard at the door to pre
vent Intrusion of any kind.
In the few words that ho did speak to
callers , Mr. Bryan asserted his unshaken
confidence In the success of his cause and
he has never , since the beginning of the
campaign , appeared more cheerful or more
hopeful than he was today. He believes
the people are thoroughly aroused and will
sustain him at the polls , but said that If
perchance they should fall to do to he woujd
by no means consider the cause of bimetal
lism lost. He thinks that In the contln
gency of defeat at this time. Imme-dlaU
preparation should be begun for the cam
paign of 1900.
The last day of the campaign will be d (
voted wholly to Mr. Bryan's own state and
will be a long and busy one. Leaving Lin
coin at G:30 : a. m. tomorrow , he will go west
ward as far as Grand Island , and from that
point return In time to reach Lincoln a1'
5:30. : making speeches of a few minutes'
duration at all Important points going and
coming. He will stop at Lincoln on blr.
return long enough to make a last addrcs $
to the people of his home town and will then
proceed to Omaha , where between the hours
of 7 and 12 o'clock , he Is expected to make
from five to seven speeches. Immediately
after the lest speech In Omaha Mr. Bryan
will return to Lincoln. KO as to bo here
on election day. Mrs. Bryan will accom
pany her husband through the state , but
will not go to Omaha with him.
Mr. Bryan tonight sent the following dis
patch to Senator Jones , chairman of the
democratic national committee , at Chicago
"I suggest that you urge all members of sil
ver clubs throughout the United States to
give the un tire day Tuesday , If possible , to
our cause In states where the bolting
democrats have been allowed to use the
party name. It will be necessary for our
people to warn voters against the deception
end at all polling places they will be UKC-
ful to meet the misrepresentations which
may bo circulated too late to be answered
by our speakers or through the press. The
gold syndicate and the trusts are fighting
for existence and we must be prepared to

AUSTIN , Tex. , Nov. 1. The campaign ,
which Is now practically closed , has been
one of the most exciting In the history of
the fitate , for the reason that while thu
democrats have been claiming It safe all
along the line , the republicans and popu
lists , with the assistance of the gold democrats -
crats , have been making such an Interesting ;
3ght that It has kept the democrats busy
Seating the brush. Now that the election
U within forty-eight hours , the situ
ation , wLlle It looks as though It
ivas leaning favorably toward , democ
racy. Is In such a position
as to be problematical. It is such
that the populists hold the balance of power
and whichever way they go will tell the
story , and In their present chaotic con
dition they are the uncertain quantity.
Democratic State Chairman Dlako says there
will be 500,000 votin cast In the state Tues
day , of which numbi-r Dryan and Scwall
will get 27B.OOO : Bryan and Watson , ! > 0,000 :
McKInley and Hobart , 125,000 , and Palmer
and Duckner , 10,000.
Dlakc also says the state democratic ticket
will win by anywhere from ( ifi.OOO to 75,000
majority. Chairman John Grant of ilic re
publican party , who has managed the organi
zation of the republican party In Texan and
Is In touch with every part of the state ,
also figures the total vote at 450.000 , but
claims from 205.000 to 210,000 votes for
the McKlnley electors and the populist fctato
tlcke ! on the fusion arrangement. Con
servative politicians figure out that of the
5CO.OOO votes the democrats are sure ef
200,000 and the fuelonlsts , comprising the
republicans , populists and gold dcmorrats ,
are also sure of 200.000. thus leaving 100.-
000 votes as the uncertain quantity. Of
this number It Is estimated most of It Is
a vest pocket vote that cannot be placed
and It Is therefore very unreliable and cun-
not bo depended upon.
Thu republican leaders are arranging mat
ters so us to have the populists and illvnr
democrats waste thrlr strength between tbo
Bryan and Sewall and Bryan and Wntiou
tickets. In the hope that by this nica-is they
can get the republican electoral ticket bate
In line. If they can be successful In di
viding the vote they will undoubtedly ret
the McKInley cleetors.
As to the congressional lists. Democratic
Chairman Blake Is claiming all thliteen
districts , while the republicans claim two
and the populists Uvo. It is safe to say that
the democrats will win In all but two dis
tricts. The Tenth and Sixth will go to tno
republicans and populists unleis ft wonderful

of the democratic state committee , clalmo
the elate for Dryan by from 10.000 to 12.-

or four congressmen , five state senators
and a majority of the lower house. Ex-
Senator Wlnton. cli/ilrman of the national

state to McKInley and atks all gold dem
ocrats to vote for Palmer. o as to give

the ticket to bo certified here after the
nomination of candidates by the conven

state where the democrats have been ac
tive. This includes Newark. Jersey City

The national democrats claim a congress
