Dentooratle Candidate Holds Confer

ST. PAUL. Minn., Aug. 31. William
Jennings Bryan, democratic candidate for
president, is Minnesota's guest today. He
arrived here shortly after I o'clock this
morning, and was met at the station by
Governor Johnson, former Governor John
LJnd, ' National Committeeman Lynch,
Mayor Lawler, and other notable demo
crats .of the city and state, and conveyed
In an aufrmobile to the Minnesota club,
where brefckfaat was served. At noon Mr.
Bryan was the guest of honor at a
luncheon given by Mr. Lynch at the Mer

fast and luncheon being occupied by Mr.

I: Is understood that plan of action with
respect to the campaign In the northwest
was talked over.
The feature of the day was an address
by Mr. Bryan at the state fair grounds,
his theme twins governmental extrava
gance. He spoke from a platform erected
especially for the occasion at the corner
of Snelllng and Langford avenues, out
side the fair grounds gates. B. F. Nelaon
of the 8tate Fair association, presided
o,ver the meeting and Introduced Governor
Johnson, who In turn Introduced Mr.
Bryan. On the platform were a number
of distinguished Mlnnesotans.
Mr. Bryan spoke In part as follows:
Mr. Bryan said In part In his addreta
- The democratic platform makes repub
lican extravagance one of the Uuls ot the
present campaign. The republican ilaiiorni
is silent till the subject, and natu.a,ly a).
To have promised economy would have
been a mockery and to have defended th
approprlatluna made by the last congress
would have been Impossible.
The Fifty-first congress was cimmrnly
called the billion-dollar congrcts. The ap-
rioprlatlons made by tnat congress cjvend
wo years, amounting lor the first lime
to tl,0uO.OUO,0Oc, or l.nw.OH.OOO a yfar. The
extravaganae of that congress contributed
til thjt iltlllPA'lii.lnilllV uli.li.ru ai.ii, r , l b. . i
democrats, in thr campaign of WM.
The last congress, however, has m ide a
new record In extravagance. In t I e of
the deficit of mure than JSif.Onu.Ouo in th.'
last fiscal year l.ie appropriations ma le
during the last session amount to m re
than tl.ogo.tiOu.UA). or twice as much as ths
approprlatluna for a single session of Ue
Klfty-flrot congress. The ina:e.ise over
lh year before was f'.n.u .0a. shotting a
growth In expenditure iar In cuvti uf the
growth of Hi-' population.
While this tendency to extravagance
manifests Itself In nearly all dpartnie.i:s
It is especially noticeable in the Army and
Navy department. The army Is more than
twice as large as In 1K96 and the aiiprop u
tions for the army more than three. Umt
aa great as they were eleven years ng.
The expenses of the navy are albO about
three times what they Were a dee ids ag.
The Increase In the appropriations tor
the army and navy alone are $U',to ,o) a
year In excess of what they were in ,$97.
The Imperialistic policy, for which the re
publican party Is responsible. Is the only
exouse for this enormous and Increaimg
drain upon the taxpayers.
Our platform also calls attention to the
fact that W.OUi new off.ces have been cre
ated, at an expense of $7o,ui6.000 a year,
as against an Increase of W.UiO new cffl ei,
with salaries amounting to-6,(i OXI In th
Cleveland and the McKlnley adm nutri

tlon suffers to a greater or less extent be
cause of the unnecessary expenditures of
the government, the farmers have spe.-lal
reason for complaint because they pay
more than their share of the taxes col
lected and receive less than their share of
benefits which flow from the expen!tu'e

TIME FOR REV1SIO HAS COME
ttereno E. Payne Says Conditions Kaw
AUBURN, N. Y Aug. 81. In an address
accepting renomlnatlon today, Sereno E.
Payne, chairman of the ways and means
committee and republican leader in tho
lower house of congress, said he believed
the time has come for action In the direc
tion of revision of th tariff. "Our rlyals
In trade, Germany arid France, have
adopted a maximum and minimum of tar
iff," said he, "and under our existing law
we are unable to, obtain their minimum
rate without too great a sacrifice to Amer
ican Industry. We can only meet them on
their own ground with a maximum and
minimum tariff. This consideration alone
would be sufficient to Justify a revision."
Mr. Payne was renominated today for
the fourteenth time by the republicans of
the Thirty-first congressional district.
"Notwithstanding democratic opposition,
we have convinced the American people
that we are earnest in our pledge to re
vise the tarKf; It would seem almost to
have convinced Mr.- Bryan, .for he has been
telling us how It ought to" be done In his
platform and In his speeches. He declares
that 'articles entering Into competition with
trust-controlled products should be ptaeed
upon the free list.' This is In line with
a bill Introduced by Mr. Bryan white he
was In congress In the '90s and a member
of the committee on. ways and means. If
he has any settled convictions, this seems
to be one of them. But w; erever there Is
a trust there are also smaller factories de
pendent for their existence on the same
tariff protection. His program' would -certainly
destroy the latter. If. the trusts or
the other factories are wiped out what
does lie propose to do with the countless
thousands of workmen that this free list
would deprive of the dally means of sup
port? Can this be the man who proclaims
himself the friend of labor? No greater
danger has threatened the laboring man in
this country than this proposition In the

th present tariff.. - ten. years age, was
satisfactorily adjusted to the cninnierclsl

tact Is that the conditions whl"i now
underlie the present Just demand for revi
sion had not until recently evolved as
Incidents In the meat economic growth uf
tho country, made possible by th adoption
of the Dlngley tariff. A third reason Is,
that the first reiiulslte of business being
a reasonable stahllity of fundamental or
basic conditions and the tariff being the
very foundation of business In this coun
try, constant tinkering wl.th the tariff,
after the democratic fashion, would be dis
astious to business. Just as democratic

disastrous alike to mtihufactut ers. to pro

Another picture Is a more pleasing one.
It relates to our Country as ruled bv the

I-ONnON. Aug. 31. The reply of the
Netherlands government to President
Castoro' last note will, It Is understood, he
In- substance that the Dutch cruiser Oelder

upon entering I.a Oualra because under
International naval practice, a war vessel
does not salute a flag In a foreisn port if

informed the Netherlands government that
he was no longer persona grata and should
have requested his recall. The method
President Castro preferred to follow was
