The matter Is substantially In the same

LONDON , Nov. 2. The dispatch from
Wei-Hal-Wei announcing the war prepara
tions of the British naval authorities there
la regarded here as of grave Impor
tance , coupled with the Anglo-French war
preparations. It Is surmised that Riibsta ,
profiting by the present strained relations
between Great Britain and France , haa de
cided to push forward Its alma In the far
cast by forcibly seizing the valuable treaty
port of New Chwang , which , It Is said. Great
Britain win .permit.
A dispatch from London to the Associated
Press on October 20 said a cable message
had been received there from Shanghai as
follows : "A Russian regiment occupied the
town of New Chwang ( province ot Leao-
Toug ) and the forts at the mouth of the
liver Llao , on October IE , thus securing
complete possession of New Chwang. The
native troops fled without making any oppo
sition , under ordera from the empreea dow-
nger and LI Hung Chang. A British gun
boat was In the river at the time. Its nonresistance -
resistance la regarded as the virtual British
abandonment of the whole of Manchuria to
the Russians and gives Russia an Invaluable
Mrotcglc point. Great Britain Is certain to
lose the New Chwang trade , ot which It haa
had SO per cent. "

WASHINGTON , Nov. 2. The critical con
dltlon ot affairs between France and Grea
Britain Is exciting great Interest among thi
diplomatic corps here and on some ot thi
phases of the controversy their tnformatloi
appears to be more exact than that comlni
from ParU and London. The dispatches to
day attached murh significance to the ab
sence of Baron Courcel , the French ambas
under , from London , and It was staled tha
France would show Its animosity by no
continuing an ambassador at London. Th
Journal Official received at the French em
bowerer , saya that the appolntmen
of M. Paul Cambon as ambassador to Lon
don to succeed Baron Courcel was officially
gazetted on September 21. M. Cambon U a
brothw of M. Jules Cambon , the French
ambassador here , who waa conspicuous In
the peace engagements between this govern
ment and Spain. Ho has been ambassador
at Constantinople and U now on his way
to London.
At the leading embassies hero there Is
little Idea that the Fashoda affair will lead
to war , although there IB a very general
opinion that the Egyptian question In gen
eral may lead to a conflict In which other
European countries than France and Great
Britain may take part. A French diplomat
speaking of the Fashoda affair said : "There
Is not the Bllghtcst chance that Fashoda
alone will lead to war. Although ot strate
gical value It Is practically Inaccessible to
France , while at the same time easily ac
cessible to England. English ships are now
well down the Nile and the British troops
are not far from Fashoda. Besides the Nile
route brings the British within two weeks'
travel of Fashoda. On the other hand It took
Major Marchand two years and a half to
reach Fashoda and at best It would take
Franco two years to reach there on the
route from the west coast of Africa and
across to the Congo country. From a mili
tary standpoint , therefore , It would be In
expedient If not Impossible for an Issue to
bo made on Fashoda. If there IB to bo an
Issue nt nil , It will bo on the larger ques-
on of Egypt In general and the control
hlch Egypt U to exercise In the heart of
frlca. "

LONDON , Nov. 2. The examination of
ilr. Hoolcy In bankruptcy proceedings was
resumed today and attracted much atten-
lon. Mr. Hooley continued to testify to
ho amounts , largo and small , paid to trus-
ces and directors In connection with his
romotlons. He created a sensation by say-
rig that ho paid Sir William Marriott 1,000
'or Introducing him to the Carlton club , nnd
averting later that he paid 10,000 to the
marquis of Abcrgavenny , a prominent con-
ervatlve , for party funds. The witness did
not known whether the money reached the
party funds. Subsequently Mr. Hooley ex
plained that he paid the marquis of Aber-
gavenny 5,000 first and then paid him a
second 5,000 because he was told that bo
had promised 10,000. "But , " the witness
nterjected , "that was a lie. "
Mr. Hooley testified that he paid ? 1,000
o Frank Harris , editor of the Saturday Re
view , "to flqtmro a man named Blake who
hrcntonod to > publish noineti4ng"antagonl5
lo to the companies. " Witness also said1
e did not know Blake , nor did be know
what the blackmalf waa for.
Sir Joseph Ronals , former lord mayor of
iondon , was mentioned by Mr. Hooley as
among these who received $25,000 for Joln-
ng the board of directors of the British
Embroidery _ company. The bankrupt said
ilso that Lord Ashburton paid him $250,000
'or a quarter share of his profits from Sop-
ember 30 , 1S97 , to the last day of that year.
On the other hand , Mr. Hooley paid Lord
Ashburton $ CO,000 for an Introduction to a
firm ot solicitors willing to advance him

affairs , subsequently president of the Board

he liberal Interest for Aberdeen , speaking
there 'this evening , endorsed Lord Salis
bury's ( stand In the Fashoda controversy ,
declaring that the military control o ! 'all
the navigable waters In the Bahr-el-Ghazal
basin , as well as the Nile , must be secured
to Hgypt.
Referring to the Increasing cordiality be
twcon the United States and Great Britain
Mr , Bryce said :
When last In the United States I wa
uuch struck with the chanc-j li : nuhllc mn

powers wished tr > Intervene against th

I wish never to advocate a formal all !

America and Grrat Britain. They have n
adverse Interests anywhere 'n the world an
they have common alms ir. pumlry regions
Everywhere each can render a m'eat nervlc

Nature and history meant them to b
friends and the closer nnd deeper Jha
friendship Is the better lf wl'i bo for th
greatness and welfare of both.

Oh , what a bombardment ! The volleys
fired by the big guna of the republican party
at C'rolghton hall last night did not leave
a ship of the popocrats that was not left a
smoking wreck. Judge Den 3. Baker sent
holes clean through the sllverclads of the
enemy , amidships , Ex-Congressman E. J.
Halner raked them fore and aft ; a few tor-
rlflo shots were sent by Dave Mercer at the
miserable fortifications on shore , and , finally ,
Judge M. L. Jlayward , by one grand coup ,
sent the flagship of the' demopop squadron'
to the bottom of the sea.
It was a glorious engagement another
Manila and shouts went up for "Old Glory"
In the triumph of victory.
The hall was packed. It was under the
auspices of the Swedish-American Garfleld
club that the meeting was held and those
who couldn't find chairs had to stand. For
three solid hours the guns of the McKlnley
patriots belched away at the enemy. Presi
dent John Norberg of the club couldn't help
expressing his gratitude to It for bringing
such a crowd , grea In numbers and grand
In enthusiasm. The Swedish Military band
was there to play patriotic music and the
Swedish singing club. "Norden , " was on
hand to sing the "Bed , White and Blue. "
The Immense audience Joined In the chorus
of Iho latter with cheers.
I.oeal Men Lend Off.
By way of finding the range of the enemy
there were a few prellmlnarj shots from the
local candidates. Phil B. Winter , candidate
for county attorney , called attention to the
respective devices of the several parties on
the ballot. That of the republicans Is the
American eagle , which rightfully belongs to
It ; the popocrats -misappropriated the
one-story cottage home ot the farmer and
the laborer , and the silver republicans had
monopolized the liberty bell. If any party
ought to claim the home and the liberty
bell It la the republican party. As for the
rooster tho'democrats are entitled to that-
"ever scratching for something , always
kicking , and keeping honest people awake
of nights with Its unearthly crowing. "
William I. Klerstead , candidate for re
election as county commissioner , alluded to
the proportionate representation of the
Swedish Americans In the county patronage
and passingly referred to some of the attacks
made upon him by the popocratlc organ as
characteristic falsehoods , too absurd to bo
regarded seriously. His record In the past
was n good enough guaranty ot what It
would ho In the future. The legislative can
didates , J. O. Detweller , Isaac Noyes , Joseph
Crow , Frank Burman and J. A. Beverly ,
followed. Mr. Beverly called attention to
the necessity for registering on the Bth. G.
H , Williams , thecandldato < _ , .ror , , . , c impis-
sloner of public lands.arid buildings , also
talked briefly.
Dnve Mercer's Stnrter.
The first of the big guns was "Our Dave"
Mercer. He had been cheered repeatedly
from the time of his appearance on the
stage. Said he :
This meeting Is Indeed a compliment to i
the patriotism and republicanism of the >
Swedish-American Garfield club. It shows i
their Interest In the cause of e"d > oem
inent. Omaha has been n scene of great ex
citement during the last lvf m. n'ti * , but :
now that our splendid exposition Is over
the voters will have time to r.ttind to poll-
tics. The difference between the World's i
Fair at Chicago and the TransmUslsslppl Ex
position nt Omaha Is that the former was
followed by democratic misrule and hard I
times , whereas under the wise administration
of President McKlnley the good times Omaha
has had will be continued In the McKlnley
prosperity enjoyed by the country at large.
The other side Is making a great < 'eal
of noise , but , my friends , -lo you remember
the story of Grant at Galena ? Oca night
ho heard a terrific howling. Ho asked wnot
It was. He was informed It was 'Voyotes. '
"There must be six hundred of them " ob
served the general. "Oh , no , " r ° pll ; d hla
Informant , "you will discover th're are only
two of them If you take the pilns to find
out , " and , sure enough , when they Investi
gated , they found that all ho noise -v.s
made by only two coyotes fighting. ( Laug'i-
ter and cheers. ) This Is the way It will
turn out with the other side when the co.iut
Is made on election day. Thera will b < !
only two popocrats howling nnd they will be
fighting. ( Roars of laughter and appla-i'.f. ) I
We have a great , grand , glorious country
It Is a scandal upon our patriotism that tht
yellow Journals continue to devote them
selves to abusing such a splendid adminis
tration as President McKlnley's has proved
to bo.
So far as my claims to your suffrages go
I will simply fctand upon my record. Mj ,
opponent has a newspaper at hla dlsposa
nnd he. through some agency , Is attempting
to mislead the publlo by misrepresentation !
of myself. But It Is not necessary for me t (
do other than to leave my record with yo\
and trust to your patriotism and Integrity
( Loud and prolonged applause , and cries o :
"You nro cure of our votes , Dave ! " )
JmlRc nnlcer'n Speech.
Judge Benjamin S. Baker followed Mr
Mercer. He said :
0d If It had been left to the Swedlsh-Amer
lean Garfield club to say who was to be th <
3'- candidate on the republican ticket for
ernor of Nebraska , It would not have be-oi
Judge M. L. Hayward. but the state con
ventlon knew beat what was for the bes
Interests ot the whole state.
There ore many questions In this com
palgn , but there are a few particular onei
upon which a few republicans nnd no popu
lists talk. Ono of them is the money ques
tlon. Senator Allen in his speech at Blali
the other day nowhere mentioned the slngli
gold standard or 16 to 1. They have aban <
doned 16 to 1 , save that they want slxteei
offices to our ono The only thing they nov
claim Is that the republicans In their ad'
ministration of the affairs of this state wen
dlshcncst. Well , no party should be con <
dcmned for the acts of only one or two mei
any more than the religion of Je'.ois Chris
should be condemned because of the pecca
dlllos of a few erring church members. No
where can you find two republicans talklnj
together or ono soliloquizing and endorslni
the acts of Bartlcy and Moore , and thesi
two men are not before you now for you
suffrages. If they were they would be 01
the populist ticket.
Just hero Judge Baker took occasion t
put In a word fcr Mr. Merrer and Mr. Kler
stead. Anent the farmer ho observed : "Goi
Almighty could not have done more to
Omaha than has Dave Mercer , and Dave ha
the happy faculty of getting everything h
goes after whether It be an exposition o
an election. " For Mr. KlerMead he recallei
his close relations with htm for the las
four years and did not forget that the mo
rigid economy was Insisted upon even In th
mutter of court supplies.
More ShotN at Silver.
Then be went right after the silver bug
aboo , saying.
The silver question to me Is not an Issue
yet it Is for liat | only that the trlpartlt
arrangement In this state holds together
else It U for the leaves and fishes , Ou
- | | friend , Bryan , a gcod man personally , want
O-o J3AJII jo oauuo3 | p3tinan | | | puv ojaj on.
1 the fre and unlimited coiage of silver ac
cording to what ho saldllu his joint debate
with Mr. Hoecwater MrTj Uosewntcr asked
him : "How much will the prlce of silver rise
If wo have the free and Unlimited colnare of
silver ? " If Mr. BryanfCould not answer
that , who could ? ForTjno was the "tin
around which all the satellites of his party
revolved. His answer vrns : "You cannot
tell until you try It , andtyhcae who will not
try It will never know.'v Now 1st mo Bay ,
my friends , while we think Wv * gt > t the
greatest country In , nnd the
smartest , most honest , InteHlocnnt and keen
people In the world , nndfl believe we have ,
yet we mustn't thlnlr we've got all the smart
people on the globe. There are about a
billion and a quarter of people In the whole
world. Of this number n arly nlna hundred
millions , or nearly three-fourths of the
world's population , had the free and unlim
ited coinage of silver tor a good many
years , and though they did many times more
business than we as a riatlon can do , yet
the prlco of silver gradually went down as
the metal Increased In abundance.
According to Mr. Bryan , If the mints ot
our country were open to silver coinage.
It would not make anydfferonce ; | where wo
locate the mints , whether.-In Now York , on
the Gulf of Mexico or Sanyrnnclsco all they
a k Is that the hopper bfiopened ; and never
closed would it make any difference If the
hopper was put Just over , the border , say , In
i Mexico ? The argument of Mr. Bryan nnd
his followers Is that If two go ahead and
coin the silver of the world we can compel
the other nations to come ( to the prlco we fix
by coinage. Yet Mexico hils free nnd unlim
ited coinage and the Mextran dollar Is worth
only 16 cents. From Mix Bryan's point of
view wo could take cither 371U grains of
pure sliver or only forty : grains nnd make
It worth whatever prlco wo should fix.
Concluding he showed ( hat there had been
more silver coined since the "crime of 1873"
than over before In the hfj < tory of the coun.
try. It Is the silver mlnirn who are really
behind the clamor for free coinage , because
the price ot silver has fallen and they hope
to bolster It up by favorable legislation.
Legislation , however , cannot create values.
The workingmnn , If anybody Is , Is entitled
to the best dollar In thelworld. Prosperity
had been enjoyed under republican rule al
ways In the history ofjthls country. He
told a story of a votorjin the last cam
paign who had been collared by a sllvcrlto
and told that a depreciated dollar would
enable htm the easier to pay off a mortgage.
"But I happen to hold ttie mortgage , " said
the victim. He advlied all those present to
make their little mark In' the circle at the
head of the republican column ot candidates
on their ballots. < jJ
Hulncr'x Happy ITItn.

then the "Red , White and , Bltje. " the audi

cheers. After this cx-C6ngressmnn E. J.
Halner took the rostrumNoticing that a
workman had been at' ' > vork ( pa\ntlng \ the
walls In the gallery during Judge Baker's
speech , he said It was fay grand thing to
I see that , under McKlnley/prosperlty , workingmen -
! ingmen are forgetting Sundays and night * ,
and haven't tlmo to Btop'ifurthermore { they
nro being paid in 100-cent dollars. "Tht >
fact Is the McKlnley 'administration with
thlrtecn-lnch Krupp guns has been knocking
holes In the popocrntlc armor. " His atten
tion was then directed to . Hitchcock , tha
fuslonlet candidate for congress , whom ha
called "Multiple Platform Hitchcock. " He
took up the leaflet clrcu utedtby Mr. Hitch
cock and dissected it Vera are two good
things to bo found In ItJ et remarked , "on
that he was fortunate je' ' tKh to have boon
born In Omaha , niiotr ei-V Us.'t Ills lather'Vas
a republican. " On this hfe commented :
Ho claims credit for being the son of n
senator cf the United States who voted for
the demonetization of silver In 1873. He
says that ho left the republican party in
1885 , ono year after Mr. Blalnc made bis
memorable campaign. If ho was with
Blalno In 18S4. he was with that magnificent
man who was In favor of putting 100 cents
worth of silver in a , dollar. But he left
Blalne and went over to Grover Cleveland.
j that man who never learned anything and
never had anything to forget.
I , Mr. Hitchcock makes a great ado about
I the silver question , but ho was In favor of
the repeal of the silver purchasing clause
, ' ot the Sherman act. and If he stood with
| Grover Cleveland he was opposed to the
< free coinage of silver. These things were
simply suggested to me by the remarks of
Judge Baker , for the silver question , though
i not quite dead. Is not a living Issue today.
Under Mr. McKlnley It Is making a splendid
hcEpttal record for Itself.
There is ono Idea which I want to impress
upon laboring men. From the name of your
i organization I Infer that you , like myself ,
l were born on foreign soil. I was born in
Hungary , that country which saved Europe
and Christianity as a bulwark of civilization
i against the Mohammedan hordes.
' AVaKen nnil LlvlnR.
I find that In the country where there is
the highest wage paid there Is the highest
standard of living. In China they eat rats ,
[ but In America every worklngman has his
t beefsteak. The popocrats say that the la-
3 boring men are ground down. Mr. Bryan
3 would have you think there Is an antagonism
between the laborer and hla employer , but ,
on the contrary , their Interests aie identical ,
j for the relation between capital and labor
. is that of a partnership. The claim that the
. | Interests of the two are antagonistic Is the
j fundamental rot upon which the opposition
builds Its Insecure fabric. Yet we hear Sen
ator Allen constantly harping on the delu-
slon of a conflict between the "masses and
I the classes. " The republican party stands
up for general prosperity regardless of sec
tion , regardless of class , regardless of em
ployment , all united together with a com
mon Interest , a common purpose , a common
country , a common flag , a common destiny.
( Loud applause. ) It Is not a question ol
what shall be legal tender ; It is not a ques
tion of what shall be the standard , but the
real labor question Is that you shall have
plenty of work. Every policy that gives you
more work is the policy which you should
espouse and vote for. In 1868 there was
$400,000,000 paid out in wages in this coun
try. In 1892 the amount was } 2,250,000,000-
the population had doubled only , yet the
1 wages were six times more. During the nexl
t four years the amount dropped almost one
half to $1.260,000.000. Do > ou wonder thai
we heard ro much about hard times then'
The greatest calamity which can befall n
nation is to have brave , strong men golne
about peeking work and finding none. There
has never been any such calamity under i
republican administration.
He made a beautiful peroration In closing
calling the attention ot the men In the audi
ence wearing the Grand Army button tc
remember that they shot out sectionalism
in the civil war ; that this is now a real
United States a uniting of conditions as
well as of commonwealths and he pointed
to the glorious destiny ahead of the nation
at the end of this century , hoping Nebraska
would comet Into the republican column and
j help support that "grand statesman ; thai
1 noble patriot , Major William McKlnley. "
r Mr. Halner quoted freely from the World'
Herald of July and August , 1893 , to shov
that Mr. Hitchcock had then opposed UK
present 16 to 1 theory of free coinage.
Jmlue IInyivnrd'n Adilremi ,
Mr. Halner had been applauded at ever ;
utterance almost , but the audience had beoi
manifesting Impatience to hear Judge Hay
ward and yelled for him vociferously. Whet
he was presented be received a splendid ova
tlon of prolonged cheers. As usual thi
gubernatorial candidate's speech was ful
ot telling points and he made the mnthc
matlcal claims of the popocrata seem rldtcu

LONDON , Nov. 2. ( New York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram. ) The Stand
ard's Berlin dispatch says that Russia and
another power are credited with nn Idea
emanating from Washington that annexa
tion by the United States of the whole of thf >
Philippines twould have to bo preceded by a
common ncrecmont on future action to betaken
taken In certain circumstances.
On this question German papers express
their feelings very frankly. The Hambur-
glschc Corrcspondenz , a semi-official organ ,
says that Mr. McKlnley , whom nobody
hitherto recanted as a hotspur , now de
mands the complete surrender of all the
Philippines only because victory at the elec
tions on the 8th Inst. Is dependent on It.
It concludes as follows : "At bottom the
American demand Is less a blow to Spain
than to the European powers , which Bccm
desirous ot selecting naval stations In the
Philippines. "
LONDON , Nov. 3. The Paris corre
spondent ot the Morning Post says :
"It la expected that a rupture of the peace
negotiations between the United States and
Spain will be officially announced on Fri
day. The feeling hero Is that the attitude
of the Spaniards Is Irrational In view of the
financial proposals of the Unted States and
that they may ultimately regret having
failed to agree quickly with the adversary. "
The Vienna correspondent of the Time *
says :
"Tho Spanish commissioners cannot bo
surprised , neither can the Spanish govern
ment , by America's decision to take the
Philippines. Possibly the Spanish people
were not prepared for It nnd the commis
sioners are pretending surprise so , that the
government.may be better able to face pub-
He opinion. Certainly everybody outside of
Spain must have understood that the archipelago
pelage was lost to Spain. "
The Vienna correspondent of the Dally
Telegraph says :
The Austrian cabinet considers an English
protectorate of the Philippines the only
proper solution of the question. "
PARIS , Nov. 2. The Sollel today , com
menting editorially upon the position as
sumed by the American Peace commission
ers says : ' 'No monarchical government
would hayo 3arei to conduct Itself after the
f.isb'.on- > lha * Amoj enns , . . whx . > i ) > | o 6re c *
talking EO much ot right and liberty. The
plan of the Americans Is now evident. It Is
to take all of Spain's colonies and leave
Spain the debts of all those colonies. This
Is the result of the holy war undertaken tc
Insure the Independence of the Cubans.
What base hypocrisy do these liberals , these
democrats , these republicans show ! "
ST. PETERSBURG , Nov. 2. The Novostl ,
commenting upon the United States' deter .
mination to claim the Philippine Islands ,
says : "Tho great powers can , like Spain ,
protest against the proposed cession , as sev
eral of them are directly Interested In the
maintenance of the statu quo. In an ex
treme case the question should be arbi
trated. "

NEW YORK , Nov. 3. Advices from Sanll-
ace say a rumor Is current there that the
United States transport Panama , which left
Santiago for New York last Tuceday with
320 passenccrs has been lost off Cape
Mays ) , Cuba.
The news is said to have been brought to
Santiago by a fishing schooner which , cruis
ing along the coast , nlghted wreckage ,
among which was a life preserver marked
"Panama. "
Most ot the Panama's passengers ivero
soldiers. Among the civilians were Con
gressman John Dalzell ot Pennsylvania and
ex-Congressman George Huff ot Grccns-
burc , Pa.
Cape Maysl IB on the extreme eastern end
of Cuba.
It Is not Improbable that the Panama may
have suffered severely In the hurricane
which swept over that part of the world nnd
may possibly have lost some of Its rigging ,
accounting for the assumption that the vcs.
scl is lost.

CHEYENNE , Wyo. , Nov. 2. ( Special. )
Chairman J. A. Van Orsdel of the republican
state central committee today Issued the fol
lowing address to the voters of Wyoming :
To the People of Wyoming : I desire to
extend my congratulntlonB to the republicans
of Wyoming regarding the situation
! throughout the stato. What three weeks
ago seemed to be an apathetic condition , on
the part of the voters , has changed as far
as the republicans are concerned to an ear
nest determination to save the state from
n return to democratic depression. The
I largo majority of these who value pros-
i porous times and who are looking forward
I to the future with hope , Jwvo enrolled them-
i selves under the republican banner and will
to the polls next. Tuesday to repel the
yw nym jfi muvawyKajaitAi".1"1" ! * *
tries' ft the state Ttlih to RecjTnhctn ttfiu
getting control of the next congress.
At this tlmo there Is every reason to
believe that 'the ' republicans will elect the
entire state ticket , member of congress and
a majority of the legislature. The chair
man of the democratic committee has made
a last desperate appeal to the democrats
and sllvcrmen to stand by the ticket , but
his words Inspire no enthusiasm among the
rank nnd fllo of the party , who have al
ready given up the contest. Lifelong demo
crats all over the state say that their party
this year promises nothing to the people but
a debased currency that they are standing
In opposition to all that has been gained
by the prosecution of the most successful
war over waged by n nation.
The republican party , after eighteen
months of administration of the affairs of
the government , presents Its clalme for the
suffrages of the people without any apolo
gies. The prosperity promised In the cam
paign of 18)6 ! ) has been morn than realized.
Democratic orators In this campaign have
persistently declared that the times nro no
better than they were under democratic
rule. The bank deposits ot the state have
lucteased one-fourth during the last four
teen months. This prove. * conclusively that
the restoration of confidence ban brought
Into the country the Increased currency
necessary to conduct the business of the
country and disproves the declaration that
the republican policy haa contracted tha
currency. Prosperity Is not an Intangible-
thing. The man who Is receiving today
double the price for his wool , double the
price for bis beef , double the price for h'u
mutton and almost doubfe the price for all
tba products of the farm that be received
under the last democratic administration ,
has a demonstration of prosperity that can
not be disproved by the simple declarations
j of the democratic stump orators of the state
( to the contrary. With such evidences of
prosperity at hand , with the Increased de
mand and higher prices of labor , with the
1 general contentment that prevails over the
Improved conditions , the people are not
ready to return to the cheap prices nnd tha
Cheap statesmanship of 1S93-9C.
I have only to urge the republicans and
all pthora who desire a continuance of the
present prosperous conditions to go to the
polls next Tuesday and Insure the success
of the republican ticket from top to bottom.
The eyes of the nation arc on Wyoming and
wo are to determine at this election whether
we are to be clashed with these other Rocky
Mountain utatcn which arc considered hoc-
tlle to foreign Investments. Let every man
and woman who has suffered during the
democratic times , previous to the election
of President McKlnley , and who have been
made prosperous through rcpubMcan meth
ods , show their appreciation by supporting
the republican ticket at the coming election.
