When asked his opinion of the result of the campaign, he said he thought it was consistent with the character of the men who conducted it "what was to be expected from the limitations of General Shaf ter. I think it would have been different if General Miles had been in command that it would have been more satisfactorily conducted. I think he has more of the spark and genius of command than any man in the army, and I am sure that if he had had charge he would have been in the front rank." In his testimony yesterday, General Breckinridge dealt with the campaign in Cuba and the transportation of troops to that island.

At the National Liberal Unionists' conference here yesterday, Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of state for the colonies, made his first public speech since his return from the United States. Mr. Chamberlain, who was much more explicit on the subject of Anglo-French relations than any of his colleagues in the cabinet has been, said it was the "hope of every friend of peace that the French withdrawal -from Fashoda is indicative of their acceptance of the principle of British control of the whole valley of the Nile, regarding which, there cannot be any discussion whatever." Going on to recite a "series of unfriendly acts perpetrated by France in other quarters of the globe during the last ten or fifteen years," he said: "If better relations are to be established it will be necessary for French politicians to abandon tactics whose the difficulty experienced in managing them. The colored officers seem to Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 16. Colonel W. J. Bryan last night gave the following interview relative to the late election: "While I do not understand that service in the volunteer army prevents a soldier from expressing opinions upon political questions, 1 declined to take part in the late campaign lest I should be accused by partisan opponents of attempting to embarrass the administration. Now that theelec-tion is over, I shall exercise a citizen's privilege of discussing the returns. "Compared with the election of 1896, the Republicans have gained in some places and lost in others. It was not a sweeping Republican victory. On the whole, the result is not surprising, when it is remembered that the administration is just concluding a successful war. "While a majority of the soldiers are probably anti-Republicaa, the management of the war has been entirely in Republican hands, and the strongest arguments used during the anq afraid to be left alone in their homes.

"It was not a trial upon the issues now before the people, but a successful plea for a continuance of the case. The people have not accepted the gold standard; they have not fallen in love with the plan to give the banks a monopoly of the issue of papt,r money; they have not decided to retire the greenbacks; they have not ucirrsndered to the trusts.

If the Fashoda incident only serves to disabuse foreign statesmen of the erroneous conception that the British will yield anything to pressure it will be a blessing in disguise." After referring to the "thorough and complete sympathy so noticeable between the mother country and her colonies," Mr. Chamberlain continued as follows: "What is of equal consequence, our American kin have began to understand us better. - If we have had differences in, the past I "Believe they have arisen entirely from the want cf proper mutual understanding, but now the Americans know that in their late trouble our hearts went out to them, and they heartily reciprocate our good feelings. "I shall not attempt to predict what may follow this better feeling, but I may at least hope that in the future the understanding of which I have spoken may be perfected, and that in the face of that understanding we two may be able to guarantee peace and civilization to the world." tenant Ferrera behaved most pluckily, in his tent when the latter was ill vat and-even when, dying- he ordered his M'KENNA-KERENS.

That platform has not been abandoned by those who indorsed it in 1896. It will be reaffirmed in 1900 because it gives expression to the hopes and aspirations of a large majority of the party. "When, the Democrats, Popnlits and-silvor Republicans favored Cuban independence they understood that war would give a temporary advantage to the party in power, but they were . willing to risk defeat in order to aid the people fighting to be free. "Neither can the election be regarded as an indorsement of any foreign policy. Until a treaty of peace has been entered into and the terms made known, the people cannot pass judgment upon it. Whether the war will raise any question of sufficient importance to turn public attention away from domestic problems remains to be seen."
