In fact. Mr. Lon? faced nearly a.-^ large crowd as greeted .Inlin Atwood, ihc Democratic speaker, who .^e cominp wa:^ annonnced for two weeks previous to the date of the meeting. [a a brief but appropriate si>eech I,. L. Xonhrup, chairman of the Republican" county central committee, introduced Mr. Ijinp. Mr. Northrup ex- r.lained the circumstances which made it possible for lolans to hear Mr. Long saying that what. wa> Garrett? loss was lola's gain. Mr. f^enaior Lonjc directed hi.s re- mat ks largely to Mr. Bryan. In fact, he said that Mr. Bryan was really the issue in this e.-impaign. The Xebras- kan was conducting the campaign fot the Democrat.s and was the exponen' rf 'he Democratic platform. Ho thei tr.accd ,Mr. Bryan's political ;>iistory beginning in iKSt^. when he championed free .silver. .Mr. Long reviewed the conditions of the country at that time, telling of the failures of hlv business enterprises, the closing of mills and shops and the generally depressed condiiion.j, due to Democratic la.^s. Mr. Bryan, he said, took the position in that campaign that (he cause of the depression was our finan rial system, and .tdvocaied free silvei as the relief. Mr. McKinley and the liepubiicau party took the positior that the cause was the Deraocrati* tariff system. The people decided in that campaign, said the senator, that I»tr. McKinley and the-RopubHcan party were right in asserting that the trouble was with the tariff and not with the money system. He rcviewei' the tariff and money laws enacted bj the Republicans after ihe election ol McKinley and emphasiz€d_ the fact that as a result the factories were OMoned and the depression lifted. irr. Ixtng then took up the tarlfl at length stating that the Republican party v.-as pledged to make oaly such changes In the tariff laws as would insure continued prosperity. He also spoke against the bank guaranty law as it is advocated by the.-Democrats. The senator made ah effe<^tlve plea for Xr. Taft He referred to him, after reviewing his record as a jorist Jtnd OS dvll jspTemer of th« Fhilipr •lines, as the best equipped man ever r .resonted for the office he was seeking at the time of his nomination. The speaker also urged the voters to stand by Congressman Scott. He ?a:d he knew Mr. Scott's record in r.'ongress was an excellent one and ^hat he deserved a big majority in the Dre .sent campaign. He spoke in 'tehalf of Mr. Brlstow. who defe.ited Iiim for the nomination for United States senator. He urged his friends to support Mr. Bristow saying that, if ne could stand to be defeated by Jir. "ristow. his friends ought to he wiling .to give him their support. He ro- iiinded his hearers that to elect Mr. '.rii^tow they must vote for .Mr. W'at- on and .Mr. Travis. .Mr. Long was freqtionily applnitded n the course of his remarks and everyone left the room glad that circumstances had so conspired to permit them to have the opportunity of hearing the senator. The W. O. \V. hand furnished music for thf» occasion. JOHN REEDS IS DEAD Ft. Scott. Boy Who Sot Up First Lhio- typo .llarhtno in lola, Dfo.«5 at roiToyvlllo, .John .\.

Oct. 28.—That Xew York regarded by both big parties as vitally imporiauL in the canvass was evidenced by the presence of both, presidential .ind Republican vice presi' dential candidates in or near the city. Kern continues his tour in^^Indiana; Hisgen in Connectient; Chafin and Wat kin.s at Atlantic City, and Debs Is preaching for the Socialists cause in Illinois. This is Judge Taft'.-; big day in Oreator Xew York as Monday was Aryan's. His train reached here half in hour before noon and from then •intil afffr midnight almost every moment was assigned for meetings In ••arious parts of the city. A monster 'tass meeting of Republicans will be hold in Madison Square Gaiiden to- ^ight. Two hour.s before Mr. Taft reached here .Mr. Brjan left on his up-state '.our, touching'a number of towns before addressing the big mass meeting'" It Troy tonight. Mr. Bryan spoke In Y'onkers yealer- iay, and. saying be understood his iistinguished opponent had charged hat the RepttHican pa:rc.y had done nothing for labor. Mr. Taft first as- rrted that the policies of the Repub- iran party had heein chiefly devoted o the interests of labor, and then iiointed out that the protective policy made po.-fsihlo the .sugar refining Industry, the chief enterprise of the city. •Certainly Mr. Bryan was a t>old man to advocate such views in a town ;iko Yonkors." continued Mr. Taft, •which I believe is one of the greatest Tiianufacturing towns in proportion to ts size in the state of Xew York and s dependent upon the protective sys- :om?" As .1 sample. Mr. Taft said, of the utterly impratical or destructive char icter of .Mr. Bryan's recommendation •vith reference to economic reforms,' y to wofld cite what Mr. Ttryan would ;lo with the Yonkers sugar refinery, a.ssuming for argument that the refinery was in a 'trust," Mr. Taft said: "He would take off the differential •jn sugar—that protection which is accessary to enable us to have any sugar refineries in this country. It would cause the establishment of refineries in Germany, and all of your population here dependent on this refinery would be affected. And not on•y would it destroy the trust but with ;t the independent refineries." "The Republican party is just as auch opposed to monopoly as the 'Democratic Darty." announced Mr. Taft later. "It passed and enforced 'he anti-trust law. It belieVes in going directly at the evil of monopoly by ;mnishing men for continuing it. rather than by destroying the industries •nd the great combinations of capital .hat have much utility and are <rf such •enefit to the wage earners. It be- teves in stamping out the evil and not tamping out the corporation." THE WEATHER. Forecast for Kansas: Fair tonight -ind Thursday; not much change in 'emperature; frost is probable tonight.
