Lopsport 1 Wabasli Valley Gas Co, 317 & 319 PearlStreet. \ Memphis, Tenn., Oct. '5. — William J. Bryan reached Memphis at 7:10 o'clock Monday morning from St. Louis accompanied by the members of the Memphis reception committee and Senator- elect H. D. Money, of Mississippi, llep- riisentativc John Allen, of Mississippi, and representative Benton McMillin, of Tennessee. 'All through the night crowds of people had gathered about the train at its stopping; plnces and cheered for the candidate. At Cairo, 111., where the train arrived at 1:30 o'clock Monday morning 1 , there was quite a large gathering 1 . Mr. Bryan retired early and did not arise- to greet any of the enthusiasts. Private Secretary John Allen appeared in his place and explained that Ihe nominee was tired out. Several hundred people cheered Mr. Bryan; at the Poplar street station here nnd he was also greeted with enthusiasm nlong the streets on his way to the Peabody hotel, where he had breakfast with the members of his party and of the local reception committee. The visit of Mr. Bryan to Memphis was made the occasion of a general holiday. Business houses closed their doors a.nd even the banks suspended for the day. Tt was .10:20 a. m. when Mr. Bryan, under escort of the Neely Zouaves and accompanied by members of the local reception committee, reached Overton tract, a big open field, where the speaking took place. 1 He found there a denser crowd estimated at 15,000. The audience wns not composed .wholly of Memphians. Large contingents not only cnmc from Arkansas and Mississippi, but from Alabama' and'Jventuoky, with-of course nrge 'numbers from near-by plnces in Tennessee.'Shrill cheers that increased n intensity went up from the' assemblage n-s Mr. Bryan came in sight and :he volume of sound became deafening" as he mounted the covered plnt'/orjn erected in the center of the field. • The old rebel yell.was heard on all Bide? and the crowd took every opportunity to express itself 1o the limit of lung power. On the Ktnnd with Mr. Bryan, were Seuntors Biarris. ajid/Jiate,: of Tennessee; E. "W. "Onmnck, silver democratic nominee' for congress from this district; Congressman Benton McMillin, of Tennessee,, and iGol. John Overton, Jr., chuirmnn of the Memphis reception committee. Senator Harris presented Mr. Bryan, who spoke for half mi hour to -the Tenncsscans present. The most interesting 1 part of his address was his comment on the' congressional fight in the Memphis district. He urged voters to cast their ballots for !E. W. Carmack, the silver democratic nominee, who is opposed by Josiah Patterson, the present representative. Col. Patterson is n gold man, but is supporting the Chicago ticket. ^He spoke m part as follows: Bryan'« Unselfluli Spirit. "I say to you here,' my friends, that my Interest in the cause of bimetallism !•* so deep that I would without a mpmdiit'9 hesitation resign my nomination In favor cf any person In this country who can hettcr carry this cause to victory. Tt is not a time to listen to personal amoltiona, It Is not a time to set personal Interests above tho national good. H ts not a time when we are to consider tho. temporary effect of this election upon party or^aniza- .tlons. It Is a time when we.are to ;'on- slder the effect of the gold standard, If perpetuated, among party organizations not on this country alone, but on al] man• kind. A .Financial Policy of Our Own. "My friends, I could not feel the Interest thai I do in this campaign If all I had to commend was party regularity. T up- pen.1 to "you on higher ground than that., I have a stronger claim upon .your'sup- port than can be grlven by regularity-,of a convention, I stand by the right of the American people to have a financial system of their, own. And therefore my. candidacy appeals to every ••American'.citizen •who believes In the right of the peonle of this country to govern themselves re- cardless of the aid or consenfof any other nation on earth. I am notappoallng to any sentiments' hostile to foreigners, but I say to you, my friends, that that nation does not deservo to be called a nation which has to accept a financial policj' 'ready made' from some other country." Mr. Bryan then spoke in the Jines.of his well-known * argument beginning: "The republican platform does.not say the gold standard is a good thing." He talked about a rising dollar and-a falling dollar and about not wanting a dollar so good that nobody could get any, following-familiar lines. On the conclusion o! his speech, Mr. Bryan.wae conveyed to the Louisville & Nashville station accompanied by a great crowd of enthusiasts, and at 12:10 p. m.,-left for Nashville. jiu.un unu support as tneir canoiaace one already nomlnate'd by the democratic party and also by tho free silver party. "1 also appreciate tho fact that while during all the years since ]S73, a largo majority of the democratic party and a considerable minority of the republican party have been consistent advocates of free colnuse of sliver at the present ratio, yet ever since the organization of the peoijle's party its mmebers have unanimously supported such coinage as the only means of restoring bimetallism. By persistently pointing out the disastrous effects of a gold e'andard and protesting agalnst^each suc- cosslve step toward financial bondage the populists have, exerted an Important Influence in awakening the public to a realization of tha nation's present peril. "In ;L time like this, when a great pollti cal party Is attempting to surender tho right to legislate for our views upon the llnanctal question to bind American people to a foreign monetary system, It behooves us .as lovers of our country and friends oT American Institutions to lay aside for the present such differences as may exist among us on minor questions In order that our struggle may be united In a. supreme effort to wrest the government from the hands of those who Imagine that the nation's finances are only secure when controlled by servile a.cqulescence In any policy, however destructive to the Interests of. the people of the United States, which foreign creditors, present or prospective, may desire to force upon us. "it Is a causo of congratulation that wo have In-thls campaign not only the support of democrats, populists and republicans who have all along believed In independent bimetallism, but also the active cooperation of those democrats and republicans who, having heretofore waited for international bimetallism, now Join with us rather than trust the destiny of tile nation to those who arej holding-out tho delusive hope of foreign aid, whilo they labor secretly lor the permanent establishment of the single gold standard, "While difficulties always arise In the settlement of tho details of any plan of cooperation between distinct political organizations, 1 am sure that the advocates of bimetallism aro so Intensely In earnest that they will be able to dovlae some means by- which the free silver vote may be concentrated upon one electoral ticket In each statp. To secure this result charity toward the opinions of others and liberality on the part: of .all IB necessary, but honest and sincere friends who are working toward a common result, find It possible to agree upon Just and equitable terms. The Amerian i people have proven equal to every emergency which lias arisen In the past, and' 1 am confident that In tho present emergency there will be no antagonism be- ween the various regiments of the one great army which Is marchingi,to repel an invasion more dangerous to our welfare than an army with' banners. ' "Acknowledging with' 1 gratitude your expression of r.onfldencu and good,will,.I am, yours very truly. \.' W. J. BKYAN."

Replies were received from 5,723 banks and trust companies and CC clearing house associations. The Information, however, is of such a character as to enable a fair and correct result from all to be approximated. Of the 6,723 reports received 3,548 were of national banks, 1,194 state banks; 457 savings banks; 230 of private banks and 84-of loan and trust companies. The total amount of cash In thn 5,723 Institutions reporting was $413,124,819, It Is divided as follows: Gold coln,.?134,077,003: ( gold certificates, f, r >5,4Sl,339; silver dollars, $8.25-1,G12: fractional silver. $7,390.073; silver certificates, S39,003,500; treasury notes, 1S90. $13,120,018: United States notes, $110,469,375: currency certificates, $20,858,000; national bank notjes. $23,705,834; of this total cash tho 3 45S national banks reporting.' held $335.174 S16 and the 2,205 state, etc., 177,950,233.
