"���   "7"j  EIGHTH YEAR  KELSON:  SATCJBDAY M'OENTNG AUGUST 18 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  AMERICANS AT TIEN-TSIN  ii  ��-  _$  Official Account of Action.  Washington,   August   17. -- The  �������� navy department today made public 1 ho reports of colonel  Robert L.  . Meade and major Jj. W. T. Waller,  of the United States marine corps  on the battle of Tien-Tsin.    Colonel  ( Meade's report is dated at Tien-Tain,  July Kith.     After   telling   of the  situation around Tien-Tsin, and of  the decision on July 12th, at a conference held at the English general's  headquarters, to attack the city at  daybreak the next day, colonel  iMf*ade's report, in describing the  early fighting in wliich the marines  nnd uinth infantry took such a gallant part, says:  "On the firing line action was  especially hot and the enemy's lire  especially rapid and accurate, and  about 8:30 the enemy appeared in  large numbers upon our left and  among the grave mounds of the  fields in wliich we were, with the  evident intention of flanking us. I  made a turning movement to the  loft and rear, and Ave drove them  away. Later in the day, about 2  p.m., they again made a flanking  effort, but this time the infantry  support of the  artillery company  - was on the mud wall of the city  and aided us by a cross fire. This  company was commanded by captain C. M. Long. The effort of the  enemy proved a failure and Ave  drove them in.  "We* remained in the trenches  until about S p. m., when Ave received an order from the brigadier-  general commanding to withdraw,  Avhich was probably the most difficult action of the day, since the  eneniy had so well covered our position that tlieir shots' struck the  breast of the trenches and threw  dirt in our faces, many being hit;  ' ."On the J 4th instant, the south  gate having been bloAvn in, we  moved into the Availed eity at  about 4 o'clock a. in.  "We found the city filled with  dead ,Chinamen and animals. No  resistance was mado to our occupation in the. walled city itself, but  an infantry fire Avas kept up by the  Japanese infantry upon the enemy,  who responded from the suburbs.  Sine-"*! then Ave have had undisturbed possession of all Tien-Tsin."  Colonel Meade enclosed a letter  from general Dorward, commanding the British forces, iu AA'hich he  says: "1 blame myself for the mistake iu the taking up of their position by the ninth regiment, not  remembering that troops wholly  fresh to the scene of action and  hurried forward in the excitement  ' of the attack, Avere likely to lose  their way. Still the position they  took up and gallantly held all day,  undoubtedly prevented a large body  of the enemy from turning the  right of the attacking line and in-  , fiicting serious loss on the French  and Japanese."  Colonel Meade continues-: =iiThe-  ~Ninth regiment Avere fighting some-  -what outside iny sphere of action,  so I am able to bring forward only  one instance of personal gallantry  in that regiment, although circumstanced as they 'were, fighting for  about 12 hours, almost alone and  unsupported, without, .giving back  'a foot of ground until directed to  retire under the cover of night and  the fire of the naval guns, such instances must have been very numerous. The one I would refer to is  the. bringing back to me by the  acting regimental adjutant, eaptaiu  Lawton, of the account of the position of the regiment across a wide  and fire sAvept space, and returning  with reinforcements to guide them  to his regiment when he was  severely wounded.  "The withdrawal of the regiment  was a delicate military operation,  finely carried out, on Avhich are to  ba congratulated the officers and  the men under their command." :  Major Waller's report is of especial interest, as he had command  of the marines in the fight before  Tien-Tsin was reached. The report  is dated Tien-Tsin, June 28th, and  says in part: "At noon on the 27th  the Russians, having attacked the  arsenal, the scene of my repulse on  the 22nd,'and'which had not been  captured, asked for reinforcements.  I sent out second lieutenant Joly  with 40 men, Mr. Harding, my adjutant, going as a volunteer, and  placed the whole under command  of commander Cranbrook, R. N.  "This force was about 1800 strong  aud succeeded in driving the enemy  from   the  parapets,   out   of their  fortifications and in full flight. It  fvas developed tlaat the enemy had  about 7000 men iu this point. Our  men charged over the parapet Avith  a British company, being the first  in this part of the fight. Our loss  here was one wounded and lieutenant Joly overcome by the heat,  but not until after ho had brought  liis men back to their quarters.  Lieutenant Harding acted as a  volunteer and captured an imperial  flag, Avhich he has presented to me."  NEWS IS OFFICIALLY GIVEN  Situation in China.  London, August IS.���4 a.m.���  Pekin AA*as relieved on the night of  the 15th. This message was i*e-  ceived last evening afc fche imperial  custom office in London from the  commissioner of customs in Che-  Foo. Ifc is the only official'message  that has reached England in confirmation of the earlier reports,  admiral Remoy's dispatch not  having arrived in time for publication in the London morning papers.  The Morning Post, which is the only-  paper printing the Chinese message,  says :  "Today is not only a day. of  national rejoicing, but it is also* a  day of congratulation for all the  powers of the world."  Proceeding to discuss the probabilities of a cessation of hostilities,  the Morning Post assumes that the  United States is Avilling to abandon  any idea of further aggressive action, bufc ifc questions the disposition of Germany and the other  poAvers to agree to such a course..  The Berlin correspondent of the  Morning Post says he learns that  no formal request for an armistice  has yet reached the powers, and  that it is improbable that any such  request Avill be granted.  " The other papers comment upon  the general situation, owing to the  lack of definite news .when the. editorials were Avritten. 'Most of them  advocate a stern inquisitionregard-  ing the outrages,' and the punishment of the leaders, -even -if- they  have to be pursued all over China.  , The Daily. Graphic, in a paragraph evidently inspired, says there  is no reason to believe that any of  the powers Avill repudiate the previous understanding to respect the  integrity of the empire and the dynasty, adding that the proposal to  land a British force at Shang-Hai  originated, not with the British  government, but with the Chinese,  Avho afc the same time urged that  this should not be done if likely to  lead to international complications.  "This," says the Daily Graphic,  "disposes of the story that the viceroy of Nankin changed his mind  under the influence of the consuls.  Her majesty's government, Ave believe, have no intention of contesting the right of France or the  United States to land troops should  either think it necessary."  -Shang-Hai dispatches say em-  peror-Kwang-Hsu-aecoinpanied_the  empress dowager to Hsian Fu much  against his will. Prince Tuan commanded the rear guard of the imperial escort'of .which Boxers formed  65 per cent. It was expected that  general Tung Fuh Siang would follow after the arrival of the allies.  All the palace treasures were sent  to Hsian Fu.  Fire Contests in Paris,  Pah is, August 17.���The preliminary contests in the international  exhibition of fire apparatus came  off this afternoon at Vineennes,  some 5000 firemen, representing  many nationalities, participating.  The American representatives,  chief George C. Hale of Kansas  City, and the men of the Kansas  City fire brigade, caused great wonderment by their quick harnessing  and running, together with their  methods of life saving. They received an ovation, and, by common  consent, were assigned first place.  The contest will be continued tomorrow.  Dewet Has Escaped.   ;  , London, August 17.���The war  office has received a dispatch from  lord Roberts expressing a fear that  .general.Dew.efc has eluded his pursuers. Lord Roberts says; he  imagines that Dewet's escape is  due to his breaking up his force  into small bodies.  The Metal Markets.  London, August 17.���Copper  stocks continue weak and demoralized on account of the last fortnightly statistics. The bank  bought ��192,000 in bar gold and is  sending out to the Cape ��25,000. -  BUDGET DEBATE FINISHED  Proceedings in House.  Victoria, August 17.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���-What was left ov^r  from tho estimates when the legislature rose late last night was  polished off this afternoon with  very little debate. During the discussion on the appropriations for  Kootenay, Smith Curtis of Rossland  claimed that his district AA'as not  getting as much as it should in proportion to its importance and the  amount of revenue returned.  Finance minister Turner pointed  oufc that in the figures he gave Mr.-  Curtis did not take into account  the railAvays built in Kootenay.  Green of Kaslo then rose to remark that Rossland was not the  most important point of Kootenay,  Slocan Avas the favored spot, and  this brought Houston of Nelson up  Avith the claims of his district.  A bill was brought up by Curtis  to make easier the changing of a  mining company from a non-assessable to an assessable basis. It was  eventually thrown out on the  ground that such a bill would enable the freeze-out game to be  played by company manipulating.  The government bill releasing  volunteers in South Africa from  assessment work on claims now  held in British Columbia AA'as put  through, and there is a likelihood  that they Avill be given crown  grants by a grateful country.  This evening's session was taken  uy the Vancouver City bill,'which  is being pushed through.  W. J. Bryan Endorsed.  Indianapolis, Indiana, August  10.���The Liberty. Congress of the  American league of anti-imperialists  today emphatically endorsed the  candidature of W.' J. Bryan for  president. The resolutions to that  effect were read to the convention  by colonel Charles R. Codman of  Massachusetts, who moved . their,  adoptions, after "stating that the  entire committee of 25 had endorsed  them. The convention, hoAvever,  did not adopt the platform as submitted by the resolutions committee without a prolonged  and heated debate. Thomas M.  Osborne, of Auburn, New York,  leader of the "third ticket" movement, offered an amendment - to  strike out the endorsement of  Bryan, and his amendment was  vigorously ' supported by several  delegates, but when the previous  question Avas ordered less than a  score could be marshalled to .vote  against Bryan. The vote Avas viva  voce and its exact result will never  be known, but the sentiment of the  convention was clearly shown as  being in favor of the endorsement  of Bryan as the most effectiA-e manner of checking the alleged imperialistic policy of the administration.  position at San Jshuan. Although  the Russians were inferior in numbers and had only tAvo guns, they  made combined frontal and flank  attacks upon the Chinese on August  10th. The Chinese succeeded in  breaking up the flank movement  and they fought with great stub-  borness but eventually they were  compelled!by a fierce Cossack attack  on their center to evacuate the  position and withdraw the guns.  -Big-Lumber-Suitsr  CONFIRMED IN WASHINGTON  Two Official Telegrams.  Washington, August 17.���Tho  allied forces have captured and  entered - Pekin in' the face of obstinate resistance and the members  of the foreign legations are safe.  Official confirmation of the fall of  the Chinese capital came to the  United States government tonight  in the shape of two telegrams, one  from admiral Remey and the ofcher  from consul Fowler afc Che-Foo. The  cablegram to admiral Remey came  to hand first, early in the evening,  followed very soon after that -by  that from consul -'FoAvler, and the  officials, realizing the general public  interest in the event, which it was.  believed had happened in Pekin, at  onco made them public. ���  Previous information Avhich had  been received here showed that the  allied armies took possession of  Tung CIioav on -the 12fch instant.  From that city to Pekin the distance is not very" .great, not more  than a dozen miles.- It seems evident, therefore, that the armies  halted for a time at Tung Chow,  probably for the purpose of giving  the men a rest aud ��� to prepare for  the attack oil' the; capital city Jn  force after waiting..until the rear  of the advancing, hosts should arrive at the* front; Possibly, also,  thedolay was the result of negotiations inaugurated ���;by the Chinese  officials looking tb^the delivery of  the ministers with an escort.  Grand Rapids, Michigan, August  17.���C. Ruggles of Chicago, formerly  of Manistee, today began suit in  the United States district court to.  procure a dissolution of partnership  of the Buckley <fc Douglas Lumber  Company of Manistee. He also  prays for the appointment of a  receiver and for an injunction to  restrain Edward Buckley and William Douglas from disposing of the  property or injuring the interests  of the company or of the Manistee  & Northeastern railway which the  lumber company controls. The interests involved amount to $4,000,-  000, including some heavy lumbering interests in Canada. The complainant avers that Buckley and  Douglas have violated verbal agreements made when they were taken  into the business and given management thereof. Buckley is Ruggles  brother-in-law.  The New German Cable.  New York, August 17.���The  Commercial Cable Company makes  the following announcement: "The  cable steamer Atiglia, which is laying the new German .cable, reports  her position at noon, August 17th  as being in latitude 39 degrees 44  minutes north and longitude 04 degrees, 15 minutes west, 503 nautical  miles of cable having been paid out.

Roderick Robertson aud the federal board of trade  delegates are here doing everything  possible to have the eight-hour law  agitation reopened. Today petitions signed by the companies included in the mine owners' association AArere presented in the house  praying that a commission be appointed to inquire into the working  of all the laws now in force relating  to mining.  The members from the mining  districts aro free in denouncing  this attempt to keep alive a question that is practically dead.  When the estimates were being  passed today Houston asked if the  government had made provision to  pay the expenses incurred in the  Kootenays iu enforcing the smallpox regulations, and Avas assured  that the government would pay all  claims properly presented.  Captain Fitzstubbs has been  superannuated. He will be allowed $75 a month.  Colonel Hoare Believed.

Tho description forwarded by chief Jarvis had been  placed in the hands of the Spokane  policemen, and a couple of these  noted Manderson as he stood at the  theatre door.

Their  assets, including a paper mill at  Rockford, Michigan, are estimated  at $100,000. The cause of the  assignment is said to be the failure  of other firms and the fire at their  Rockford mill.  International Golf at Quebec.  Quehec, August 17.���President  Watson, of the Royal Canadian  Golf Association,! has been advised  that the international golf championships betAveen Canada and the  United States Avill be played on the  Quebec links..

Henry Archibald Dead.  Montreal, August 17,r���Henry  Archibald, 72 years of age, the  senior member of the firm of Froth-  ingham & Workman, died at 2:30  this afternoon after an illness of  two years. Mr. Archibald was  born at Boston and came to Montreal in 1842.  Trench Left Behind.  London, August 17.���Extracts  from a long dispatch respecting the  advance of the allied forces from  Tien-Tsin say general Ma appeared  during the fighting at Yang Tsun,  Cold From Klondike.  Seattle, August 17.���The steamer  Roanoake ha9 arrived from Skagway with $4,500,000 in gold.  that the immediate advance on Pekin was decided at a council of war  in which 385 officers took part, held  at Yang Tsun ou August 7th, and  that tiie advance columns were  draAvn up in the following order:  Japanese, Russian, British and  American. The French contingent  was obliged to remain at Yang  Tsun on account of its inadequate  commissary."  FIRST ATHABASCA DIVIDEND  Payable September 1st.  The Tribune is informed from  a thoroughly reliable source that on  the first of September the Athabasca mine will declare a dividend  of $25,000, which will be at the rate  of 5 per cent on the new capitalization. This statement will be confirmed shortly by an official notification from the' company's office.  Ifc is the intention of the company  to declare dividends quarterly and  the monthly returns from the property have been of such a nature  of late as to justify the company in  arriving at this decision.  In July the values recovered at  the mine amounted to' $17,521, in  June the retui ns reached the splendid aggregate of $28,270, and in  May $18,511. The cost of operating  is, of course, known only to the  management, but" the- margin of  -profit must necessarily have been  large. Another feature, Avhich has  contributed in bringing the Athabasca back to a , dividend-paying  basis, arises out of the reorganization. The assessments were levied  on the shares to enable the company to liquidate past expenditures  properly chargeable to capital account, which hitherto had been  swallowing up the monthly profits.  The result of the assessment is that  the profits Avill iioav be ,devoted to  paying dividends, the first of which  is announced above.  The demand for Athabasca, shares  has been-brisk of late. _ When the  big clean-up AA'as' announced, the  stock advanced'lOO per .'cent* within  a :few ; weeks and the,,demand,  locally at-least,: was 1 very-brisk.-*'* A  well knoAvn local broker has handled  25,000 shares in the last two months,  and always on a rising market. The  last of his holdings AAras snapped up  yesterday and it is probable that  even Avithout the announcement of  a dividend Athabascas could not be  bought in Nelson yesterday anywhere near the figures quoted  recently. As it is, Athabasca shares  are likely to be scarcer than the  proverbial hen's teeth for a time.  Today is the last day for applications to haA'e stock converted  from the dollar basis to the pound  basis as adopted by the neAV company. Where such applications are  not made today and the assessment  paid, the holders lose their interest  in the company. So far as can be  learned only a few scattered blocks  remain unconverted, the recent  heavy runs at the mine have  -spurred -shareholders_~into~"t"aking~  the necessary steps to protecfc their  holdings. -   Nelson Man Killed.  A letter has been received in  town from H. M. T. Pym, who left  Nelson with Strathcona's Horse,  dated Vlaakfontein, July 7th.. In  it he says that corporal Lee from  Nelson was shot dead by the Boers  the day before. This is evidently  the Lee who was one of the three  Nelson volunteers under captain  Hodgins. The deceased Avas a clever  engineer and a good fellow, and the  news of his death will be received  with great regret. Lee was a member of the Nelson Rifle Company,  and, when he left Nelson, Avas connected Avith the Nelson Sampling  Works.    . ���  Vest Makers on Strike.  New York, August 17.���Two  thousand vest makers are on strike  in Manhattan. Their demands are  for the payment of the same scale  of wages which was in force  last year, for a ten hour day and  for weekly payments. All of those  who have struck are employed in  the sweat shops. The factories  have not thus far been affected by  the strike in the least.  Golf in Chicago.

It remains for the council to decide  whether or not tho men who  worked in the rock cut required for  the Silica street seAver should be  paid the wages given rock drillers  in the Victoria street quarry.

Bay  %lte Wtxbxm^  After preaching the gospel of  peace for several months, the mine  owners'   association   of   Kootenay  yesterday mado its first move at  reopening the old sore, whicli for  - several months festered in the mining districts, and brought the business community, to the verge   of  bankruptcy. 7 The   mine  owners'  , iissociatipn is not content with the  .verdict whicli the. electors of Brit-:  . ish Columbia rendered  upon, the  eight-hour law  issue.   The  members of this association desire to be  a law unto themselves.   They care  not for the unanimous verdict of  the   prople   as   expressed   at   the  polls; and, since they cannot accomplish their ends openly, they do not  hesitate to employ covert means.  Yesterday they presented a petition to the legislature asking that  bo appointed to re-  on   ALL   THE  TO  MINING,  in   the   hope   that   through    the  agency    of    a    commission    they  might   succeed   in    defeating   the  expressed   mandate   of   the    people. In   the    recent    elections  throughout the mining districts of  East   Kootenay,   West   Kootenay,  and Southern Yale, the maintenance  of the eight-hour law was not an  issue     as     between     candidates.  Throughout   all of these  districts  public opinion was so unanimously  in favor of the maintenance of the  eight-hour law, that there was not  a candidate, of any shade of politics,  who did not proclaim himself to be  in favor of the measure, nor who  was not pledged to the hilt to use  his best endeavors to prevent any  and all tampering with it.   More:  when the ballots were counted the  press of the province, from Victoria  to   Fernie, read iri tiie result.' an  emphatic pronouncement that there  should not be any tampering with  the law as it stood.    There has been  no change in public opinion upon  this issue.   The business communities look to the legislature to protect them from the disasters which  the waging of another industrial  war would entail.     Tbey contend  that the people of the mining districts have given tlieir verdict in  unmistakable   language   upon   the  question, and the legislature is now  asked to give effect to this verdict.  The    only    way   that    this   can  be done is to refuse point blank the  -request-for-a-commission.-whichrif-  it is to have any effect, can only be  that of negativing the wishes of  the   very   great   majority   of the  people.      The   presenting   of   the  mine-owners' petition   brings   the  members   of   the   legislature   face  to       face       with       the       issue  whether      the     wish      of     the  great mass of the people is to be  respected, or, whether it shall be  given to a few mine managers, not  only to   fix the wage  whicli the  workers   in   the   mining   districts  shall receive, but the laws under  which they shall live.   There is no  middle ground.   The people have  pronounced upon what the welfare  of   the   province   requires.      The  legislature   must   decide   whether  this   also   shall   be   sacrificed   for  fractional showings in the dividends  of non-resident mining companies.  Canadian line of railway to the  Yukon the people of Skagway  have it in their power to virtually  kill off Canadian trade, and if they  fail it will not be through lack of  endeavor.  After a generous circulation of  the story that the Trades and Labor Council of Vancouver had de^  cided to expel from union membership all members of the militia, its  denial is now making its appearance. Several prominent members  of the council have been interviewed upon the subject. In the  main they agree thafc no proposition of the kind Avould be favorably considered by tho council, and  that it could havo no effect even  were it passed, as tho council has  no jurisdiction over the unions.  The appeal which was made  through the London Times recently,  for subscriptions to the ��8000 endowment fund necessary for the  creation of the new diocese of  Kootenay, has not been very well  received by the press. The Canadian Gazette says that the time has  gone by.when appeals should be  made in Great Britain for the maintenance of churches in Canada.  _-&Zr_^Z~&Zt(__tZLtSLtS_lgtX_t  Xif .  ffl  ffl  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  .e��pe*P��P��:r'?:*t:,?:5:"5;*r<r ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^9_9^9^9'^9^9^9^9^9^9^9^9^0^.-^  ���������_���&*��� *^i  FRED  IRVINE &  CO.  ffl  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  Special sale of Dress Goods, Millinery, Muslin, Prints, Lawns, Percales, Sateens, and Dimities  We will offer our entire stock of Summer Goods at special prices below cost.

The traffic passing through the  Sault Ste. Marie canals in the month  of July was extraordinarily large,  notwithstanding a decided falling  off in the number of boats carrying  grain " this year. This reduction  was more than made up by the  gains in mineral freight���coal and  iron ore. The number, of vessels  registered was 3098, against 3176 a  year ago; but the average cargo  was greater, and the total freight  carried was 4,101,705 short tons,  which compares with 4,024,789 tons  in July, 1809, showing an increase  of 75,970 tons, or 1.9 per cent. The  daily average passages were 100  vessels carrying 132,325 tons of  freight; figures which give some  idea of,the enormous traffic of the  lakes. This business, it must be  remembered, is to and from Lake  Superior ports only, and does not  include the large amount originating  on Lake Michigan.  Iron ore formed the largest item  of east-bound tonnage, the total for  the   month   being   2,783,555 , tons,  which compares, with 2,557,060 tons  last; year; showing an increase of  220,495 tons, or  8.S per cent.    The  copper shipments were  17,470 tons,  against 19,208 tons in 1899; a decrease of 1738 tons, due chiefly to  the fact that a large quantity was  shipped by rail and lake early in  the season.    In west-bound freight  the most important item was coal;  this amounted to 770,897 tons for  the month,  an increase of  110,882  tons, or 10.7 per cent.   This year's  tonnage included 88,311   tons anthracite and 688,580  tons, bituminous,. against   135,204  and   530,811  tons respectively a year ago.   The  indications   are   that    bituminous  stocks at the upper ports will be  very large when navigation closes.  The falling  off in  anthracite  tonnage for the month is of no special  significance, as the trade in May  and June was very heavy.  plied to the ores before smelting, to  remove the iron and other impurities from the zinc.

Staff Correspondence of tho Horald.  Chicago, August 10.���Which is  the better, a man of strong personality and'indomitable will, a man  unknown and untried or a puppet,  boneless and characterless, who has  failed lamentably to take advantage of glorious opportunties for  writing his name large on the scroll  of fame?  Some such conundrum as this  confronts the American voter today.  Ifcs wording depends on his party  affiliation and is modified as to one  or the other of the two presidential  candidates by prejudice and p-irti-  zanship, but averaging several hundred expressions of opinion, the  salient facts concerning tho personality of the two candidates seem to  be about as above set down.  McKiniey has proven himself  neither more no less than a figurehead, always respectable and at  times endowed with a certain Delphic dignity; Bryan is a name and  more or less of a mockery, but his  most strenuous detractors scarcely  go so far as to attack the force of  liis personality.  Theodore Roosevelt, the redoubtable, the terror of Republican as  well as (Democratic bosses, in the  palmy days when, with sublime  self-confidence, he set his puny  powers in array against the wishes  of senator Piatt, declared that president McKiniey has no more backbone than a chocolate eclairs. At  that time colonel Roosevelt was not  aware that the fates, aided and  abetted by the $ew York Jtepubli-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay*, U. S.,  Atlin, Bi C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  can ring, had arranged for his elimination from .active "-politics,. the  vice-presidency being but a cloud  scarcely, larger than a man's hand  on his political horizon. It has always been a characteristic of Roosevelt's that he says exactly what is  in liis mind without an.yTserio'us  consideration of consequences. The  trait is sometimes called a praiseworthy frankness and sometimes a  qualified idiocy, depending on the  point of .view of the commenter. It  is only fair to suppose, however,  that the governor meant what he  said and that he has since that time  had no cogent reason to change his  mind.  Accepting   the  characterization,  therefore, as accurate and impartial,  it is easy  to foresee   what   peril  would have menaced the Republican party had the Democrats nominated a statesman of the Cleveland  type, a man revered and respected  not less for his personality than for  his   broad   views   and   recognized  ability.   Culpably or not the Republican party has managed to involve  tho United States government in  more difficulties and complications  than    havo   clouded   the  national  horizon since   the Civil   War.    It  may be the working out of the national  destiny, in  whicli case the  Republican party has been but the  helpless instrument of the Genius of  the nation, and then again it may  be     a      ruthless,    perversion    of  tho     purpose    of   the     Republic  with   the  definite   aim   of   benefitting   a  certain   combination  of  financial   interests- which, like" an  evil spirit, has hovered constantly  in  tlio neighborhood of the presidential mansion.   In any case, the  logic of the situation would have  demanded that at such a crisis the  Democratic party be given .an Opportunity of extricating the nation  from     its   disagreeable    position.

LAY, Manager.  existence, but the present situation  presents certain aspects which  would make the experiment advisable. The only requisite is a spare  horse which promises to be at least  as good as the. one discarded.  William Jennings Bryan was de-  Jib^ratelyL^ahd^jiinanimouslyL^put  forward by the   new   Democratic  party to meet the emergency.   Who  is William Jennings Bryan?  A boy was educated in one of the  innumerable little Western colleges.  He was always a "poseur," always  affected   striking   peculiarities   in  dress     and     appearance,    always  sought the public eye and the public  ear, not because he had a message  to deliver, if the opinion of his fellow-students is to be accepted, but  because   lie   had  that   mania   for  public-speaking which has been the  curse of the nations since the earliest  recorded history.    He   lived   with  the orators of the past, with Webster and Haynes and Calhoun and  Clay; fattened   on their, rhetoric  without    being   strengthened   by  their logic, and developed naturally  into that abomination of ��� abominations, a "stump speaker."   Then he  moved West, following the natural  trend of his career, and became a  citizen of the great commonwealth  of Nebraska, which ranks second  only to Kansas in the magnitude of  its crop of cranks.   Here, on the  verge, of Eastern manners and customs, but with the limitless freedom  of the West to furnish opportunities, Mr. Bryan set about the.development of his future.   First as a  struggling lawyer, then as a newspaper writer, he offered his rhetorical fluency, in the political market.  At first it did not pass current at a  high valuation   and there   was a  period of grim struggle for existence  which developed the tenacity of his  character and brought home to him  a realization of the value of small  things.   He was elected to congress  and his plagiarized speeches fell on  tho barren ground of an audience ���  sated and sick of mere rhetorical  verbiage. He was relegated to  private life and found himself accepted as an orator and ignored as  thinker. Then came the marvel of  marvels. By a stolen simile and a  stroke of genius he stampeded a  Democratic National Convention,  and in an instant was elevated  from serving before the altar of  populism to the shrine of the populist idol. Twice nominated for the  presidency of the United States,  AVilliam Jennings Bryan is still the  great enigma of American politics.  What he is, not even tho Democratic  National Committee can discover.  He is a man untried, inexperienced,  unknown except through the sub-  limated idealization_ofthe, rank and  file of his party.  Tenacity of purpose, rigid adherence to one line of conduct, arrogant  self-consciousness, sturdy independence���these are the only traits of  character Bryan has so far shown  himself to possess. His personal integrity is probably above suspicion,  although he has not yet faced any  great temptation. His personal  magnetism is something tremendous  and fascinating. That finishes the  category.  Again the conundrum���Bryan or  McKiniey, which is the safest executive for  the  American  Republic?
