RED CLOUD, Neb., Sept. 24. (Specltl
Telegram.) The weather was propitious all
day for the big republican meeting at HeJ
Cloud, to which the names of Speaker Jo
seph G. Cannon and Hon. James K. Wat
son of Indiana proved to be a strong lode-
stone. Enthusiasm was manifested early
In the day, when hundreds of farmers and
visiting delegations from Blue Hill, Cowlea
and neighboring towns congregated on th-j
streets to await the speaking, which took
place at the court house grove at 1:3.
The thoroughfares were liberally dec
orated with flag, bunting and pictures of
Rorevelt, Fairbanks and the slate candi
dates, while the cheers which almost con
stantly arc spoke plainly the spirit of the
day. Speaker Cannon and Congressman
Watson arrived here from Falls City In
their special car before dawn. They break
fasted at 8:30 nnd rested quietly in tho car
notr the station until 19 o'clock, when
t'nele Joe, having expressed a desire to
eee what the corn country lcoks like, was
driven several miles Into the country, re
turning at 11:46. Mr. Watson was also
driven Into the country by A. Galusha,
candidate for secretary of state. Mr. Can
non was accompanied by C. F. Cather of
Km Ha of Protection.
During the morning Mr. Cannon enter
tained the Franklin county delegation,
among whom were I. E. Montgomery, C.
Haber and A. Hadden. Escorted by the
Swiss band from Guide Rock the reception
committee, among whom were A. Galusha,
E. N. Searle and C. F. Cather. the dis
tinguished guest and party, composed of
Governor Mickey, Congressman Norrls,
Congressman Watson of Indiana and rep
resentative republicans of Webster county,
arrived nt the courthouse square, where a
decorated pnvlllon and seats had been
erected. After a song by a male quartet
Chairman Cnther Introduced Joseph G.
Cannon. The speaker vns In excellent
voice and npoke clearly from the begin
ning. He began by assigning to each man
the right of his own convictions, providing
In arriving at conclusions he remembered
that "by their fruits ye shall know them."

And that because of the first plnnk In the

of the union and left a depleted treamiry;
but by the principle of protection as car
ried out by the republicans we have a full
treasury and are a wealthy people from
Maine to the Golden Gate. This result has
been brought about by protecting those In
dustries which we can maintain at home.
Behold, what has been wrought. In 1W1
our manufactures were comparatively nil,

represented by twenty-six hands upheld,

factured products of the country Is con
sumed nt home. Shall we devote our at
tentlon to the 92 per cent or to the 8 per
Cleveland's "Cheap" Principles.
Referring to the democratic complaint
that the things we buy are too high, he
said the reason la that the producer here
gets 12 per day where his brothera Nt other
countries get one. "We tried the cheap Idea
In 1882 when Cleveland was elected," he
added, "and If we had had an election In
1893 those who voted for him would have
called for the mountains and rocks to fall

Is the cheap result of a cheap principle.
Cleveland borrowed money to pay the gov
ernment expense at 4 per cent, while Bu
chanan borrowed for the same purpose at
12 per cent, Cleveland, then, being 6 per
cent his superior."
Leaving the results and principles of pro
tection, Mr. Cannon reviewed the money
question briefly. He spoke eloquently of
the mutual Interests of republicans, popu
lists and democrats as American citizens
and urged all to well meditate upon the
results of the principles advocated by re
publicanism and in November next to Judge
the parties by their fruits.
Referring to tha support of Parker by
Mr. Bryan because of Imperialism, the
speaker called It a bad reason, recounting
how the personal solicitation of Mr. Bryan

Lesson In Political Economy.
BLOOMINGTON, Neb., Sept. 24. (Spe
cial Telegram.) This has been a red letter
day for this town. The speaker of the
house, Joe Cannon, was scheduled to speak
to the people at this place for half an
hour. This meeting was well advertised
and early In the afternoon people from all
purts of the country began to crowd Into
town. Promptly at 4:45 the special pulled
In, bringing the distinguished guest. With
him were Congressman James E. Watson
of the Sixth Indiana district, Congressman
Norrls of this district and Governor Mickey.
They were ushered onto a plntform erected
near the depot for this purpose. Mr. Mont
gomery, chairman of the county centrnl
committee, Introduced Mr. Cannon to the
large crowd assembled.
Mr. Cannon began his speech by compli
menting the people on the great Improve
ment of the country and congratulated
them on the evident prosperity they were
enjoying. Taking this for his text he gave
them an object lesson In political economy,
starting out with the Inauguration of Lin
coln, ho pointed out that Buchanan, after
years of democratic free trade, left un
empty treasury; how the republican party
Inaugurated the policy of protection; how
from that time on the conditions Improved;
bow fuetortes strrted up, giving employ
ment at good wages to millions of work
Inginen, who in turn were enabled to buy
tho products of the farmer; how thus the
farmer, having a home market, sold his
products at home at good prices nnd In
return was enabled to buy the comforts of
life, making more work for the worklng
mun, thus" one helping the other until
America had for forty-four years enjoyed
an unprecedented prosperity, Interrupted
only for four years when, under Cleveland's
scond administration, the democrats nnd
full control of the government.
When Work Wsa Bearer.
Drawing attention tmrk to these days he
recalled tho time when 8.000,00 men tramped
tho lund In asurch of work, unable to buy
the product of the farmer; how prices of
products fell to before war prices. He
vividly described the suffering of those
days. Then, starting with the Inaugura
tion or aicKiniry. ne showed how the spo.
vial seasloa repealed the WiUwn LIU aud
wrote protection on the statute books; how
from that very moment factorle started
tip again, paying living wager to all who
wanted tn work; how thin again created a
home market for farm products and
brought about the prosperity we now en
ry. With earnest eloquence he warned the
people not to charyte the present policy to
one from which experience taught that
nothing but ruin was to be expected. He
spoke a few kind words for Congressman
Norris, pointing out the necessity of elect
ing a republican congresn and senate to
help President Roosevelt carry out the
progressive policy of the republican plat
form. Mr. Cannon then Introduced Congressman
Watson, who In a brief but eloquent mnn-
I ner spoke on protection, giving In figures
the Immense growth of our resources under
that system. Both speeches were well re
ceived. (lose of Week's Campaign.
OXFORD, Neb., Sept. 24. (Special Tele,
gram.) The week's campaigning which has
been carried on by Spenkor Cannon nnd
Congressman James E. Watson of Indi
ana, during Which the speaker has deliv
ered several speeches and from which hp
Is wornout, came to a close when they ad
dressed a large audience of men and women
at the opera house tonight, when the cam.
, palgn In Furnas county was begun. Be
fore Mr. Cannon was Introduced he was
presented with a bouquet by nn old soldier
In the audience, which he wore In his but
tonhole throughout the evening. The
speaker at once plunged Into a clear discus
sion of protection, coupling the effects of
Its principles upon tho development with
the growth of Kansas and Nebraska, whose
birth was contemporaneous with the birth
of the republican party. He spoke briefly
of Judge Parker, complaining that the dem
ocratic candidate's position Is uncertain
and vasclllatlng. He disposed of the charge
of imperialism ogainst Roosevelt by reclt.
Ing how he has exercised his office and
reduced the army to the limit of 59,000. He
closed by recommending the record of
Congressman Norrls of the Fifth district,
and Impressing upon his constituents the
necessity of returning him to the legisla
ture. Hon. James Watson of Indiana
closed the day's work with a brilliant and
eloquent recounting of the deeds of his
party from the settlement of the question
of state's rights, the meeting of the debt
subsequent to the wnr and the maintenance
of the gold standard. Mr. Watson's discus
sion of the trusts was listened to with
close attention and received with applause.
Tho speaker und his purty will leave here
shortly after midnight for Hastings, where
Mr. Cannon will dine tomorrow with Sen
ORLEANS. Neb., Sept. 24. (Special
Telegram.) Speaker Cannon's special train

were ready to receive the wounded. The
next train from the wreck arrived shortly
after 8 o'clock. It brought the bodies of
forty-three dead. The six others who died
enroute brings the "lltt up to forty-nine
and there are at least five more at the
scene of the wreck, none of the bodies of

were torn loose and people and seats were
hurled to the front end of the Car. When
he recovered from the shock he heard the
screams and groans of the injured and dy
ing in every direction.
Bodies Horribly Mangled.
"I left tho car," said Mr. Brown, "as
soon ns I could and walked to the main
part of the wreck. It was the most hor
rible sight I ever witnessed. I saw a
woman pinioned by a plec; of split timber
which hud gone completely through her
body. A little child, quivering in death's
agony, lay beneath the woman. 1 saw the
child die and within a few feet of her lay
a woman's head, while the decapitated body
was several feet away. Another little girl
whose body wus fearfully mangled was
piteously calling for her mother. I have
since learned that she was Lucille Conner
of Knoxville, and that both of her parent"
were killed. I heard one woman, terribly
mangled, praying earnestly to be spared
for hor children, but death ensued In a few
minutes. Both engines nnd all of the
couches of No. 15 were literally demolished,
the smoker and baggage car completely so; .
the sleepers remained on the track undam. I
