Here are a few of his expressions on tin.- question of protection, the policy that If? now recognized by a'i-1 n.s the-one method of solving perplexing problems that beset the country.. Mr. Bryan says: WONT PROTECT THE WOOL GROWERS. ' "Wool, for Instance, Is the chief raw material in the, woolen industry, and it has been placed upon the free list. Whether the tariff o'ii wool has raised •the price of wool -to the sheep grower a-bove the point it would have reached without, a tariff, i| " <H>e*tl° n which 'has been dlsetissed|-athcv man settled. •Speaking for iHysclrV it is immaterial in -my judgment whether tiie sheep grower receives any benefit from, the tariff or not, Whetjier he docs or does not, •whether the ijwobj manufacturer col- letits n comifousJil'ory duty from- the consumer of woolen goods and pays it over to the wool growei-, or collects It and keeps i-t himself, or doesn't collect. Jt. at all. and therefore docs not need it, I am for free wool." WANTS ABSOLUTE FREE TRADE. "A tariff of 10'^er cen't. levied pnr- posely for protflc'f.ton Is,--as far as the principle is concerned, just as Indefensible ns a tariff 0«< a thousand per cent." FREE RAW 8 " ^iATERTA'L OF' NO BENEFIT TO MANUFAC- ' CONFUSION CONFOUNDED. The thoughtful Democrat may 'well inquire wl-tbj Coblv this morning, 'Where-am I at?" That Brynn can^ snocessfully pose iis the nominee ot two' parties liavlnB different, and hi some respects antagonistic platforms, and different vice presidential' candidates, may well be q'uostlonod. Should-success attend his effort however whose president would he be-and what platform would be followed? And under his leadership liow will this heterogen- coiw moss be jnaishaUed at the polls. .In'Indiana under-the Australian ballot Jaw, and in fact in all the statoa-un- der toss icontfuatas'.restrictions perhaps.', a division- of the electoral ticket will) lie -necessary to secure unanimity oC notion. The Democrats have already named nn electoral ticket a'nd it will be necessary far n, number of these nominees to withdraw? to give plflce to Populists. The Democratic party as a whole will then" be committed to the support of Populist electors and in that support a repudiation of the Chicago nominee -for vice president, to the extent of tho Populist electors. Every Democrat therefore, who votes the ticket bo-Its the ticket, and every Populist does the-same for that matter. It does not seem probable that this fusion wM prevail In Indiana. It-1*' certain that the Populists would not endorse -Sewiin to that exteat. It Ls hard enough for them, to accept Bryan who was a good enough Populist .until he turned. Democrat-;mt Chicago, A traitor 4s generally - hated by -those whom he betrays. .-Ami it Is not likely that Indiana Democrats will support Watson to tire-extent of voting for a few elpctois who if elected will vote for him for vice president. It seems, almost certain thnt. fusion would-be 'repudiated by both element?.

PLATF.bRM -.FALLACIES. Falte nnd Itt'lNlondlna 'ABn«rtloni by tb.* Oemocruclo Natloaal Convention. TJie declaration, of financial principles put forward by tlie democratic-Mr tioiia) convention is a "shrewd mixture of cheap money delusions, ItaJf truths and wholly unfounded assertions'. Its alleged statement of facts has frequently been shown to be untrue; in spite oi this they wereKlfcliberutely indorsed by a majority of the representatives of the democratic party. Since tho standard raised at Chicago will be used to rally t4J the forces of silverisro, flatism, currency debasement and debt repudiation, it becomes" necessary to refute once more the statements on which tb* American people ore asked to support the democratic candidates. This can be briefly and effectively done by a. comparison of the assertions «f "the Chicago platform -with the simple facts. SILVER CLAIMS.'

Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE AFTER CHINESE COIN. Japanese on Thoir Way to London to Get War Indemnity. Not Known What the Money Win Be lined For — Japan Said to Ue Practically » hllver Country. A party of iivt Japanese reached Chicago the. other day on their wuy from Yokohama to London, where they are to effect the transfer of the. war indemnity which China is owing to their country. They registered ut the Auditorium and spentmost of the afternoon and evening: making a study ol t.be city. At the head of the-party is Sonoda Kokichi, president of tho Specie bank ot Yokohama, the financial iigfent of the Bank of Japan, a government insli'.u-.. tion. With him are S. Hawahawa, pri- i-ate secretary of the minister of iinancc; T. Yanuimoto, cashier of the Bank of Japan; U. Yanagiya, and K. In'ianishi, secretary to -Mr. Sonoda. By the treaty made at, the close of the war with China that country engaged to pay the victorious Japanese an indemnity of 200,000,000 taels, or about $150,000,000. Ilnlf of this, has already been turned over >n London by the Chinese embassy to the Japanese embassy. The Specie bnnk, as the agent of.tiie Bank of Japan, which has no London correspondent, will receive the money from the embassy of the Japanese government and attend to its transfer to Japan or other disposition of it. Of thisMr.Sonodasaid: "Just what we arc to do with tuu indemnity I nm not at liberty to soy. It may be shipped back in gold or we may bii v si i ver with it, or it nuiy be expended in part. The indemnity was to be paid in silver, butitwill likely be converted into gold. "Yours is a wonderful city and a wonderful country. I have always thought well of the United States. Ttis likely thnt onr relations will become closer. Japan is now at work on a steamship line to the United States. \Vc are to repair our broken navy, and I should like to see the -men-of-war built in American shipyards, ns we have no means at home to do the work. "I'am. a bimetallism Japan is practically a silver country. After your congress repealed the Sherman law and the price o< silver fell our government .•ippoinUxl a commission to make a study of the money question. I was a member of it. The commission thought it best to adopt a gold standard, although it did not believe that Jnpan was quite ready for it then.- -It- favored g-old as a means of keeping financial company •with other nations. But we should prefer the double standard if the world would only have it." KITTEN STOPS A CAR. DoNe* • Mi>r.orm»n ami Rofuiten to B« ' IWlcued. A little white kitten with a yellow ribbon around its neck interfered with transportation on North State street, Chicago, the other evening and delayed business men with tlie reckless indifference of a.n ice main or a, co«l heaver. As a south-bound trolley car passed a restaurant on North State street t!ie kitten walked out of the bnscmtnt and started la/.ily toward the opposite side of the street. Directly in front of the car it stopped and arched its back defiantly at the motorman. But the mo- lorman was a humane man, and had not been in the trolley car business loiif enough to glory in the killing of even a cat, so he brought the car to a standstill. Puss was by IliJR time far under '. the car, mid a number of little girls who .had seen the affioSr rushed with, the driver to its assistance. On the car at. : the time were four women and a busi- DCMI man, and all climbed down to aid 'in the rescue of the cat: Armed with a long iron rod, the ;no.torman tried to , drive the little creature from beneath !the car, but the kitten refused, to move for some time. The business m«.n lost patience, and declared that if it had been a. man on the track instead of a worthless cat the ambulance would by this'time be carrying the remains to the morgue. After a time the little white cat walked out between tlie wheels, and was quickly clasped in the. arms of one of the little girls. Then.the ear started, and the motorman looked at tlie, little girl with on expression of pleasure, vyhile the business man climbed back to his seat wit*. a"wry fu<cc as he noticed that the bridge, had just turned. BOOMS MATCH TRADE. Diamond Company Preparot to tncro»»e IM Output. 3[erritt Greene, president of the Bridgewater Gas company, returned to Pittsburgh, Pa., from Barberton the other day. He said that President J. n. •Barber, cf the Diamond Match company, whose plant was at Barberton, told him that on account of tlie presidential campaign this company is preparing for an increase'of from 10 to 20 percent, in its business. The cause for the increase is thntso many men enter into animated discussions on the streets and in sheer 'absentmindedness ignite one match .after, another whether they need them or not. Men puff cigars, and in Pittsburgh and vicinity stogies, and let the 'fire die out, only to rel ; ght them at short intervals to punctuate their remarks. During the last Harrison-Clcve- •laud campaign, -which did not absorb much interest, tlie call for matches fell off, but it is expected that tbU year will be a record breaker, . SHOUTED HER TtETH OUT. EmI>ara»nlnK Pi-edlcao-.ent of a Woman at the Culcagc Convention. Some people howled at the Cliicc^o convention until their haireurled.bula.

She was a woman in middle life, with grayhafrandapleasantsmile, and when' iJie,did»mile she showed a setof beautiful white teeth.

When the iicune of Bland had been offered to the delegates this woman Arose from her -chair ond shouted his name. She called' it-over and over again, each time louder and louder. She waved her fan and lin-ndkerchief and finally called to tic voung nia:i athersid?: ••Shout!" He did, but notwitli *nlficient volume to plonse the excited woman, and she made one supreme effort and called the name of Missouri's favorite. Butit was her last cheer, for ttat right at least, for os she <lid so a foil set of tr>e<h fell from her mouth. They dropped with a thud l-o the floor, and small white pearls were scattered for yards nromnl. The woman looked about, h<-r in dismay. Then she turned fo sec if the women sitting- near Iwr bad si-en her misfortune. Sha stooped to the floor and picked np one or two r.f the white molars. She looked at. thorn sadly, then ut one or two farther away. Those she had picked up she placet, in her handkerchief and held the re-st of ihe evening tigh% ir. her hand. U«t for the rsmainder of the n'ght her lips were pressed closely together and no speaker could call forth any enthus'osrn from her, . CLIMBS OFF THE BALLOON. Money Induce* Sir*.
