The most exciting Incident of the entire
Ilryan campaign occurred at 7 o'clock on
Sunday evening. H had all of the elements
of treason In It , and canio very near ter
minating In a tragedy.
John Dcrlcw , an old soldier , who has a
war record of which he Is Justly proud , and
whoso patriotism will brook no Insult to
the flag under which he lives and for which
ho fought , made a determined but unsuc
cessful attempt to kill an. enthusiastic lry- )
anlte. Bcrlew Hxes at HID Twenty-fourth
avenue. On Saturday ( flag day ) there was
no residence In that portion of the city that
had a more conspicuous or prouder flag
floating oxer It than the specimen of Old
Glory thai Dcrlew raised above his home.
It was attached to tlie > tallest Hag pole he
could nnd. and that polo was raised on the
highest gable of hla house. Every window
In the house was adorned with pictures ot
McKlnley and Hobart , but there was noth
ing about the place that was so dear to the
heart of the old soldier as the mngnlllcent
silken banner that Moated troin the hcusc-
top It represented a large portion of the
last Installment of the pension the govern
ment Is pas Ing him.
On Sunday evening the grossest possible
Insult was offered to that flag. It was llrcd
upon and riddled with shot.
The treasonable act was committee * ! just
before dark , llcrlew was sitting In hi * front

. \lmlon was Immediate ! ) beneath the flag
pole , and the old soldier could sec the silken
folds of the ( lag as U rose and fell on the
gentle breeze. A man came along the street
mounted upon a horse. The flapping flag
startled the horse and he shied. The sight
of the flag and the conduct of the horse
angered the lr > anlte , and. spurring the ani
mal up to the sidewalk , he deliberately llrcd
bvth. barrels of lite gun Into the flag. The
( lag was pointing directly toward him , and
the charges of shot split It Into thousands
of pieces Derlcw saw every act of the
traitor and observed the remnants of the
stricken flag floating down to the ground.
An oath that would have done credit to
Fighting Jco Hooker burst from his lips
The Insult to the flag fired him as no sim
ilar Insult had ever done when he was ear
ning a musket In the war and shooting1 at
men who were shooting at that flag. He
forgot his rheumatism and his > ears Two
big 44-callbcr Colt's revolvers were * In the
houeu and loaded for use. In an Instant
he had these weapons and was out of the
The fellow who fired on the flag scented
the danger end was urging his horse out
of the neighborhood at the top of his speed
Herlew took deliberate aim and began send
Ing the bullets after the fleeing horseman
Several shots were fired without effect , when
one struck the horse and honied him ever
The rider went tumbling Into the dust He
was nearly two'blosks away , and as he
set ambled to his feet the sight of an old
soldier rushing toward him with n smok
ing revolver In each hand completed the
ttanle. Herlew fired his last shots at the
follow as he was fleeing. Once he avv him
put his hand with a spasmodic action to
his ear as If an angry hornet was buzzing
around that member. Again he stumbled
and almost fell. It Is certain this shot took
effect. The fellow recovered , though , and
never quit running until Tie was out of sight
The horse was found to have had one
of Its hind legs broken. The shotgun was
found where It had fallen several rods away.
The shooting created Intense excitement
in the neighborhood , and although that
portion of town Is not thickly settled a
crowd qulckl ) gathered The wounded horse
received much sympathy , and there were
mnny expressions of regret that the traitor
who fired on the flag had not received the
bullet Instead the horse. The horse , siddlo
and shotgun were taken to the residence
of John Teltge , on Seventeenth avenue and
Twenty-eighth street. There was little
prospect of saving the animal , and ho was

John N , Baldwin closed the campaign In
Council Bluffs last night. It was the seven
teenth address that Mr. Baldwin has made
In the Interest of the country and In de
fense of republican principles since he
went upon the stump a week or two ago
Tbo slzo of the audience was limited only
by the area of the republican headquarters
where the meeting VMS held The rush
of people drove out the reporters from tilt
gallery that has all along been sacred to
them , converted their tables Into seats , and
left them not elbow room enough to
scilbblo a note. Baldwin's friends arranged
several graceful tilbutes to him. In the
press gallery was a large party of his
neighbors and closest personal friends ,
among them a largo number of prominent
society women.
Just before the speaking began from dif
ferent portions of the ball canio several
largo bouquets of Immense yellow chryban
themums and yellow tea roses , plentifully
adorned with golden ribbons. They were
passed along over the heads of the amlleiae
until they reached the speaker's table. The
gracefulness of the tribute and the signifi
cance of the color pleased the people
mightily , and they cheered the flowers every
time they arouc In the air on their way to
the table. Mr Baldwin was escorted from
his homo to the hall by the McKlnle )
guards , the junior guards , thrco or four
drum corps and the colored McKlnley club
the latter resplcudant In military uniforms
Wbllo no particular effort was made the
demonstration was fully as Imposing and ex
tensive as the Ilr\an blowout on Saturda\
evening The commercial travelers' club ,
headed by a drum corps , held a prominent
position In the organizations escorting Mr
Baldwin to the hall. They wore yellow
ribbons on their hats , largo yellow chrysan
themums on the lapels of their coats and
their canes were adorrcd by a bunch of
fluttering yellow ribbons. Lonk Hypes and
Harry K'Jlas were the marshals.
Mr. Baldwin's speech was one of his most
able and eloquent efforts. It was the keen
critical analysis of the lawyer announced
with the force and fervor of the orator
Mr. Bryan's speeches and public declarations
worn used largely as the basis of the argu
ment to show the fallacies of his theories
and predictions The Madison Spuare garden
address was quoted from and attention
called to the fact that in It and subse
quent speeches Mr Bryan had admitted that
'bo result of free and unlimited coinage
was problematical , and that panics would
follow his election. Mr Baldwin's exposl-
slon of the money question was very clear
and ablo. It constituted , however , but A
small portion of his speech. The great
question was not the financial problem upon
which the populists and Mr Bryan had
made their campaign. That was simply the
old greenback question revived and he
believed that It was already burled deeper
than the rag baby was burled. The real
problem was the rcsoratlon of the protective
tariff , which the democrats hsd stricken
down and with It tbo prosperity of every
American Industry and every Interest of
American man and woman , There had been
five periods of frco trade In thin country
and there have been five panics , Uvery
panic followed a radical reduction In the
tariff laws. Mr. Baldwin quoted from the
national ceuius to show the comparative
Importance that the gold and silver mln-
Inu Industries bear to the other American
Industries. There were barely 67,000 men
engaged In this kind of mining , while there
were 2D07,1'S2 ' engaged In the factories. The
product of the mines was only fUISOGOO.
while the product of the factories was $1,5(7 , *
444.001 In Iho mines there was Invested
only 114.323 238 , while the factories represent
JI.S29.S07 742. with a product of < 0 27S.33S.-
47(5. ( The speech was altogether a fitting
close for the campaign.

Everything points to the largest vote In
the history of Council Bluffs today. Up
to last night the work of getting voters
In shape was continued , and arrangements
have been made for caring for any naturali
zations that may come up today. Several
hundred new voters have hern placed on the
poll books In this way , The much-talked-
of "sllont" voter is what Is giving the
managers of both parties considerable con
cern. The republicans arc confident of car
rying the county by at least COO majority ,
and some good-sized bets Iiavo been made
on a 900 margin The claims of the re
publicans on the Ninth district are con
servatively placed at 2500. at IcaiH the bet
ting against Genung In favor of llager Is
mostly at that figure. The chairman of

Denman Thompson's great success , "The

The sentiment of "The Old Homestead"
touches the purest wellsprlngs of human
nature1. H presents a picture of a sorrow-
ptrlckcn old man , who dreams of his wan
dering boy ; of a lovable old lady , ever vvti
ling to lend a helping hand ; of two old boys ,
who "for nigh unto thirty years" have been
rivals In love , and who , at last , through the
Instrumentality of Uncle Josh , stop "knock-
Ing chips" off one another's shouldeis , an.I
become firm friends ; of f , boy , who , having
failed to find that contentment which he
sought for In the great city , returns , like
the prodigal of old , and titl.tB the farm on
"tho coming New Year's day , " finding ther *
that peace and happiness which are not
vouchsafed for In the metropolis , of a tramp ,

Is worth seeing again and again , and should
It become an annual visitor for years to
come It will still be esteemed a pleasure
to ace once more.

In comparison with the grand and un
rivaled McKlnley demonstration that kept
the city In a blaze of light and a roar of
enthusiasm from the early evening hours
until nearly 11 o'clock last night , the re
ception to Candidate William J. Ilryan was
a literal and unadulterated frost To be
sure , there were between 3,000 and 4,000
thousand people assembled at the depot
when his special train arrived , and there
was an Interesting scene presented when he
undertook to alight. Among the throng of
people , however , were hundreds and hun-
ddreds who will today cast their ballots In
favor of sound money and the nation's
honor , as was attested by the myriads of
yellow badges which , depending from coat
lapel or streaming from hat bunds , resem
bled the mazes of a maple woods In the
golden autumn tlmo , and the grand dlapasan
of shouts and cheers which swelled niton
the crisp air , as Nebraska's lllustrous son
emerged from the car , were attuned about
equally to the musical name of McKlnley
and that cf Mr. Bryan. Curiosity was the
magnet which attracted a third of the very
ordinary crowd. This was made evident by
the dullness that pervaded the atmosphere
by the lack of hurrah and warmth might
exncc * .
Upon Tenth street the bulk ot the crowd
awaited the Hey Orator's appearance , and
when the four black horses and the open
carriage , with Its fluttering emblems and
colors did appear up the steep boarded In
cline , another burst of cheers followed , and
then to the Inspiring strains of the Twenty-
second Regiment band , the line of march
was taken up for Boyd's theater , via Tenth
and 1'jniam streets , thence across Seven
teenth to the Thespian temple , where the
gentleman made his principal speech of the
The mounted marshals and the band
shewed theway. . Then came the convey
ance of honor In which were Mr Bryan
Judge Doanc , Dr. Mercer , Dr Link , and
Jim Dahlman , followed by the carriages con
taining the stale , citizens and JacKsonlan
reception committees , the alleged Old Vet
eran Bryan club , and a long , hctcrogonous
and straggling procession of torch and color
boarera. horn blowers and women and chil
dren The old vets who nro driving them-
s"lvcn Into the night sweats over their en
thusiasm and spirit In Bryan's behalf , and
who composed the club before mentioned
numbered exactly thirty-six souls. Instead
of a stalwart column of 350 , as we have
been led to believe would bo seen In escort
of the youthful elocutionist of the gurgling
Platto. The drive through Farnam street
with Its solid walls of shouting MKinley
men , assembled and In vvaltlng for the gorg
eous parade which shortly followed , was
both picturesque and enjoyable , but the gen
eral McKlnley pandemonium ithat filled the
air must have fallen with an omnlous thud
upon Bryan's strained atirlcujars.
Boyd's cnre reached , and It looked In
deed as If there wore a few silver freaks
In the city. The palatial structure was
packed from pit to dome , and the sure :
In front for a distance of a hundred yards
either way a seething sea of struggling.and
yelling humanity. Policemen were power
less and for a time It looked as if Mi
Bryan's carriage would be picked up bodllv
and carried away so tremendous and irrc-
blsMble was the mad rush to BCO him. B :
the greatest exertion entrance to the the
ater was tbtalnc'l for the candidate and
his immediate retinue But that was all.
Not another soul could have found breathIng -
Ing space within those terra cotta walls
A thunderous wave vibrated through the
house when Governor Holcomb strode for
ward on the stajre and Introduced Mr
Bryan , and It was several moments before
a sulflclent subsidence cf the uproar was
obtained to allow the gentleman's name to
bo heard. In the bright glare cf the elec
tric light Mr. Bryan looked badly. Ills
handsome and classical face was pale and
haggard , hlb usually gleaming eyes were
next to lustorlcss , and ho looked generally
as If he had passed through a hard vs In
ter. He said

to ay to you tonight that 1 feel grateful
to those of the opposition who Jmvo on
many oce-.ihlons taken occasion to answer
false charges made , and , tnough they eould

things that they have done , the- conscience
of the American pe-oplc will biQinorc uotont

J believe American people are coming
to realize what this tontost means When
vvo started out In the oninpnlgn , declaring
the money quest Ion to lie the paramount
issue , we impressed our willingness to bottle
tle that question now and leave- other queh-
tlonn for dotoimlnatlon hereafter. But we
found that , whim wo attackul the money
changers , wo attacked all those associated
corporations which llvo together and act
together as ono man In any hour of flahgot ,
and we found that. In this campaign , every
man -who has used the Instrumentalities of
P.ovorninont for private * gain , every man
v.'ho actks to ui-o government for private
plunder , recognizes that In our \ietory
there ii a menace to bis business of living
upon some one else , rather than working
for his own living , has contributed to nn
enormous campaign fund , with which they
expect to eorrupt 70,000,000 of people.

I want you , before you vote to
morrow , to rertd the republican
platform on the money question H does
not my that the gold tnndard N
n good thine. It dare not i-ny It. U can
not any It , because , my frletuLs , the volco
of distress rMtiR from the producing musses
would silence nny voice that they should
rnl o declaring that tbo gold standard had
brought bloRsliig ! ) to the American people.
Ayo. more than that , they not only di not
declare that thi- gold stnndard Is a good
thing , but they expressly declare that It
Is bad , by pledging to tiso every effort to
get rid of the sold standard and sulotltute
the double standard when other nations
will help to do It ( Lnughtor nnd chcvr ) I
rcpoat now what I have said so often , that
If the gold standard Is good. If It brings
liUsoliiK1 * to the American people , then ,
Instead of netting rid of It , we want to
keep It If the gold standard Is nn ad
vantage , ln tend of nbandonljig It , wo want
to preserve It. Hut we want to preserve It
on Its own merits , and not under compul
sion. If the gold standard Is bad enough
to get rid of. It Is bad tnough to got rid
of now , whether any other nation wants
us to got rid of It or not ( Cho rs. )
I might appeal to the democrats of this
state and or this nation on the ground of
regularity , because I was nominated In n
regular convention , regularly called , nnd
the most democratic convention held In ro-
celit ymrs , heoiuiso the people- Instructed
their delegates and the delegates followed
those instructions ( Applause * . )
It cost Mr. Bryan an effort to say this ,
but it did not take him long , and In less
than twenty-five minutes he was on the move
again. With a rush the big crowd was emp
tied Into the streets , and then It was a fran
tic scramble of man , woman and child to
see who could get to Farnam street first
where the Bengal fires were painting both
earth and heaven , and the roar of n.usketry
and artillery were shaking the foundations
of the universe as the McKlnley hosts
trooped In columns , brigades and divisions
along the great thoroughfare. Bryan was
for the time forgotten Curiosity had been
sated. A glance , a strain of his husky voice ,
that was enough To Washington hall he
was driven In gloomy silence But on ar
rival hero a ray of hope gleamed forth , but
It IK doubtful whether It was of sulfle-7ent
volume to fill Bryan's heart with a flood
of light The hall was full to Its capacity ,
but that was all. There was no oversow on
the sidewalk , no one In the streets H cost
no effort to crawl down out of the rockaway
and walk Into the house. And Inside , of
course , there was an explosion of enthusi
astic sound , but It was not unanlmoua
enough and was cut short too quickly. It
did not take Mr. Bryan long to wind up
matters hero. Ho was through and hurry
ing across the way to Germania hall In less
than twenty minutes
Here again he found the dimensions of the
small enclosure well tested , and hero again
was a spasmodic burst of applause. Nobody
In the streets , no wild scenes of oxclto-
mrnt on sidewalk or street But the distin
guished party lingered a bit longer hero
Fred Metr. er , Introduced Mr. Bryan , pre
luding the act with one of his most felicitous
and most grandiloquent addresses , and
which. In fact , evoked fully as much ap
plause as did the remarks that followed from
the man hankering for a home on Potomac's
slopy shores
From Ciprmanla the partv was driven to
Mctz'h hall on South Thirteenth street
where another house full was awaiting him
From this point ho returned up town , stop
ping for a ten minutes' talk at Morand s
Dancing academy , then across the street
for twenty minutes with a packed audience
In the Crclghton hall , ending with similar
effort In the theater. There was n great
rrovsd hero , and having had the cockles of
their hearts warmed up by lucious sugges
tions of "Gay New York" they grew mire
responsive moro fervid and gave * Mr Brynn
a right royal welcome , and somebody at
tempted to smother him In an avalanche of
Governor Holcomh Introduced Mr. Bryan ,
and then after a twenty minutes' talk In
which he said he closed the campaign , lie
bid the cheering crowd a feeble adieu r.nd
left the theater by the rear way. He was
driven straight to the Paxton , hustled
through the clamoring crowd that quickly
began to assemble , up to his room nnd tea
a rest ho so much needs and so well de
serves. Mrs. Bryan , anxious , pale and care
worn as her husband himself , was waiting
to rece-lve him. They clasped hands , a whis
pered word or two was exchanged , th n they
turned and shook hands with a number of
ladles who had crowded Into the room , but
the reception was a brief one , and at last
the last good nights were- said , and the. first
act of the great drama was over.
When Mr. Bryai. closed bis last speech
his linen wes as wet from perspiration as
tr it had l > cen put Ir. the bath tub , but ho
was still buoyant and professedly as hope
ful as he had ever been In the campaign.
He declined to make any statement for
publication as to his hopes of the outcome
of tomorrow's contest. He said to friends ,
however , that he still felt absolutely con
fident , and expressed the belief that to
morrow's result would Justlfv his most san
guine claims He exhibited with much In
terest a telegram from Chairman Jones , ex
pressing continued confidence.
Mr Bryan had precede. ! me night's work
with flftce'ii speeches made during the day
at the following places , nil In the state of
Nebraska- few art York , Aurora. Grand
Island. Hastings. Harvard , Saronvlllc , Sutton -
ton , Grafton Fairmont Hxetor , Friend , Dor
chester , Crete and Lincoln. Ho had traveled
during the day 2MO miles It had been Mr.
Bryan's original Intention to speak In every
congressional district in the state during
the day , but this was found to be Imprac
ticable and he entered only four of the six.
YORK. Nov. 2. Seven o'clock this mornIng -
Ing found Mr. Bryan speeding westward
from Lincoln on his last day's v.ork of
the campaign. The sun had not risen whn
ho reached the special train which was to
convey him on his trip , and there were only
comparatively few people gathered about
the depot to see him off These few , hov-
o\er , gave * him an enthusiastic shout as
the train pulled out , and ho began his labt
day's campaign under favorable auspices.
Tt-o first stop of the day was at the own
tf Seward. This Is a republican place * , and
there was an exceptionally large display
of yellow badges , fully half of the crowd
being decorated with the republican em
blem. Mr Bryan was , however , reopect-
fully received and he was listened to wlh
marked attention. The appearance of the
golden colors in his own state seemed to
put the candidate on his mettle , and while
ho talked for only ; about ten mlnute-s he
delivered a very pointed address. Re
ferring to the appearance of so many gold
colors , he Intimated to his hearers that the
proper material for the farmer to use who
would display a gold badge was straw , for
ho said under existing clrcumstancee Wall
street gets your wheat and leaves you noth
ing but the straw. Ills address was de
voted largely to a denunciation of the Issue
of bonds. Notwithstanding the largo num
ber cf republicans present Mr. Bryan was
liberally applauded.
AURORA , Nov 2 As the day progressed
Mr. Bryan's audiences began to swell In
numbers and enthusiasm. At York , which
town was reached at 9 o'clock , thousands
of farmers were waiting the coming of the
candidate and the enthusiasm was great.
There were some yellow badges , but not
neatly so many as at Seward. Mr. Bryan
was introduced as the next president of the
United Statcti , and he replied that If Ne
braska furnished thn next president It de
pended a great deal uron the people of
Nebraska and hew they vote. This
brought out a great cheer and assurances
that the Htate was all right for him lie
said that this yu > ar the people had tried
an experiment in choosing a presidential
candidate from west of the Mississippi
river , and that some of the people of Ne
braska uee-mcd to be very much afraid that
there would bo a president fiom the west
Ills speech was to the farmers and fund
ready response with them. The train
tlov.ed up is It went through Bradahaw ,
and the few hundred people aeacmbled at
the depot cheered Mr. Bryan loudly. He
stood on the back platform of the special
car and bowed In response to the greetings.
AURORA. Nov. 2. Mr. Bryan had n big
crowd at Aurora , but It Included a largo
percentage of men wearing gold badges ,
which wore , however , moro contiplclous
About the train than In the vicinity of the
platform from which Mr. Bryan apuko. Ho
dwelt In his brief nddivts at tliU point
upon the alleged effects of the gold stand
ard , especially upon the farming Inter cots.

GRAND ISLAND. Nov. 2 Thh was the
extreme western point of the day's tour , as
It Is the most western place visited by Mr
Bryan duilng the campaign. Thcro was a
big meeting at this plate. The attendance
was large and the Bryan sentiment strong ,
Judging from the vociferous applause and
the absence of gold badges. Mr Bryan
talked for thirty minutes here , dwelling
upon the Importance of Individual efforts
at tbo polls tomorrow and saying that the
result o ! the election might turn on the
casting of one vote. He urged upon the
agricultural clement to declare for the
double standard as tbo most certain means
of securing the return of prosperity , which
was Impossible under existing circumstanced
The applause at this place was frequent
and at times deafening , the volume of sound
being greatly augmented by the tooting
of a largo steam thresher which had bei n
rigged up for the occotilon. Thu return trip
was begun at 11 30.
HASTINGS. Nov. 2. Mr. Bryan poVo
hero for a short time. He told the people
of his Impressions of his eastern trip.
