Crowds, Watorsineot, Mich,, Oct. 14.—Candidate Bryan's special train travefcd from llulnth'through Minnesota and Wisconsin all right, and after laying three hours Wednesday morning- on a Hiding- near Saxon resumed it.s projr- •ress at eight o'clock, the train consisting- o£ foiir ears, one for. bag-gage, and another for the train crew, the third for the use'of the party of well-known Michigan people accompanying Mr. Bryan, nnd the Inst, the special coach, obtained f.or The candidate's use by the national committee. The,train will remain intact until Detroit is reached on Saturday. The sun shone as brightly iSid the slcy wn.s as clear as on Tuesday. Then t.he'train reached Ironwood, a Ively little town in the Michigan mining belt, at 8:-tS, the candidate opened vp liis four days of Michigan campaigning. People from the surrounding country had driven in to join the Ironwood folks in welcoming the head of the Chicago ticket, and the congregation h> the square where Mr. Bryan, spoke numbered at least 2,500. A 15-minute speech was made by the candidate from n temporary stand, and then the train moved to Bessemer, where it arrived at- 0:15. A crowd of about the same proportions as that at Ironwood was gathered -about the platform from which Mr. Bryan spoke. He made one of his short talks about free coinage, taking no new lines of argument. At 9:40 the train pulled out for Watcrsroect. POPULIST ADDRESS. Executive Committee IMMCH an Appeal to the VotcM of the Party. Chicago, Oct. 14,—The national executive committee, of the people's party, Issued an address Tuesday night to the voters of the party, the main portions of which are as follows: The AtldrcM. "To the People's Party Voters of tho United States: Your national committee Indulged the hope that the patriotic action of the people's party in the national convention In subordinating tho Interests ol party to the success of tho vital Issues Involved In this campaign would be met by equally unselfish devotion to a common Interest on the pnrt of the democratic party, and that all friends of silver could present a solid front .against, the minions of greed by supporting one ticket, the truly cooperative ticket, Bryan and Watson. But this hope being disappointed, there were but ttvo courses left, one of which-must be adopted. "First. To run a straight Bryan and Watson electoral ticket In every state, which, on account of the failure of the democratic 'party to support this ticket, would have effected the same result in this campaign that would have followed the nomination of a straight populist ticket at St J-.oula, namely, the election of Mo- Klnley and the triumph'of the gold standard. "It Is true that the democratic party would ho responsible even to a greater extent than ourselves for such a result, but to permit evil to triumph 011 such eroundi would convict us as well as them of a lack of patriotism and a nnrrow parti- eanshlp that would deserve to forfeit to us. tho confidence of the American people. Remember that two wrongs never made a "right. When our devotion to thu.,wel- fare of the people falters because of any failure on the part of the people's-, repre-; gentatlves we have lowered our standard and proven (ourselves false to our.own teachings anH repudiated our own motto, o£ country first and men and. parties second The brave, enlightened voters who. constitute the rank and file of the people's oarty are Incapable of such base betrayal of their country as would result from a division In the ranks of those opposing the machinations of the confederated money newer of tho two continents a?a!nst the homes and liberties of the 1 American peo- ole and would -repudiate any .action on thu nnrt o£ their leaders opposed to united eftort nt this time as they repudiated the Old parties for treachery to their Interests. ' - ... - - • .-•••' jtmlon the Siifi-st-Motnou. "The other course left open to your..com- mlttco that was consistent with Ihc action, of Inn conv£ntlon In nominating ivfr. -p™.,, was 10 ao everything in its power to unite the voters ol the country against Mc- Klnley and to overcome the obstacles and embarrassments which, if tho democratic party 1 had put tho cause firat and party second, wo would not.have encountered. This could be accomplished only by ar- ranglns for a division of the electoral vote in every state possible, securing so man/ electors for Bryan and Watson and conceding so many to Bryan and Sewall. At the opening of the campaign this, under the circumstances, seemed the wisest course for your committee, and It 13 clearer to-day than ever that It was the only safe »nd wise course If our votes were to be cast and made effective for tho relief ot an oppressed and outraged people. •- •' Will Defeat BIcKlnley. "Followlne this line of policy, your committee has arranged electoral tickets in three-fourths of tho states and will do all In Its-power to make the same arrangement 'In all of the states, Ey perfecting this arrangement, and every sincere opponent of tho gold standard giving loyal support to these Joint electoral tickets, the .people's partywlll not only secure in tho electoral college for Bryan and Watson several times as many votes as we could' have possibly secured by makinpr •a ; straight light, but we will secure the defeat, o£ McKlnloy and the gold standard, which should now be the greatest desire of every citizen who believes In the principles of truer democracy." The address then says that the only hope loft to the money powor and trusts Is to divide and cor.qiicr. and to this they have their emissaries on hand everywhere, try- Inc- to rfri-vunt joint electoral tickets from bo!«k'' firransed: falling in this, they try to find populists and silver democrats who can bo Induced, on one pretext or another, to rebel against tho joint electoral tickets. The voters -of tho party are wurned against being misled by-so-called Icadurs who arc advisirjg voters to rebel against the joint electoral' tickets and put up soparnte eU-ctoral tickets or to withhold their sup- iioi-t'from the joint electoral tickets. These, the address declaim, are trays set.by thi? eoldljujjH. who are rejolcir.u that a few honest'men have fallen Into It. it appeals to every populist voter who may have been 'thus misled to consider the result and reluse to be Inlluencod by either mls- jjuidcjG or corrupt men. ' Tlif ad-dress says the only hope of the reiJuWltcan party "to fasten the cold stand- urd :upon the country is the corrupt use ol 1 an unlimited supply o£ money, for brl'hvry,'corruption und intimidation. The iyiti'16'tic action of the people's party In forming and supporting these iolnt electoral tickets has shattered that hope, The revulsion of tho American people against tlils boodle campaign, durlns the last ten days '• lias so united thorn that victory Is now,.assured." The address concludes: , Tho Tarty of the Future. ,-'•• "The'people's party will'be the party of the 'future. The American people will rec- otenlze U as the agency that saved the day 'when- their Interests worn at.stake: tho American people will rally around Its banner' as the party to contend against the enemy of good government In the future. Every man. to his post'and the victory Is won." •'. . ' __ ' CAS- V8E ' THE SAME. Supremo 'Court Decide* Favorably to Nft- tlonnl Democratic Tarty. Brooklyn, N- Y./Oct. 14.-The appellate division of the supreme couiv, Bitting in this city Wednesday morning, decided-that the "national democratic party" 'lias a right to use that title on the official ballot', and thatitwjll not be an infringement upon the regular democratic party's right. On this point the court was divided, and Presiding Justice 'Brown and Justices Bradley 'ind Hatch ruled in favor of the national democrats.. Justices Cullen and Bartlett jdisserited and ruled in favor of the regular democrats, holding that the latter have the exclusive right to the word ."democratic." On the other point, whether the nominations 'of the national democrats arc party nominations, the court is unanimous: in. decttling that they arc. An appeal will be probably taken to the court of appeals. Denver,'Col., Oct. 14.—The supreme court' Wednesday morning decided that the McKinley electors were entitled to the republican emblem on the state ticket, thus overruling the decision o! Secretary of State McGuffey. The court also decided thnt the Baily ticket \\:us entitled to the populist cottage home emblem and that ex-Gov. Waite and his party must apply for position "by petition? . OTHER POLITICAL ITEMS. Bl(f Bogtotrfttlon at St. LoulB. St. Louis, Oct. 14.—Tuesday was the last day of registration for voters, and it is estimated that the total names enrolled will reach nearly 135,000. This is nearly 50,000 more voters than were left on the rolls after the revision in 'l805.

Salt Lake, Utah, Oct. 14.—This Union Pacific train due here at 3:15 Wednesday morning- was held up a short distance from Uintah, at the mouth of Weber canyon and about eight miles from Ogden. It is supposed that two men did the work, but just how much booty they got is not known, and particulars will be late. The engineer, who left the train, ran ahead 10 Uintah and telegraphed in the \iure facts. He believes, however, from the conversation of the men as they went through the train, that the men mount to blow up the express car with dynamite.

The robbers, two in number, boarded the train at Peterson, a small station in the heart of Weber canyon. Uooil Chuncc o! Cim-JiliiR Robber*. If, the .special train bearing- the uil'cers makes good time it is quite possible that the robbers may be caught. ; 1S it is impossible for them to get Out of the canyon save by the eastern routes, and all stations east of Uintah have been notified of the robbery nnd the agents arc impatiently awaiting the appearance of. the bandits. The robbers surprised the engineer by suddenly risir." up from behind the tankau;! covering him with a gun. They gave the fireman a cotton sack and told him to put it over his head. The engineer was then told to run along until ordered to stop. A few seconds later the robbers on the engine had been joined by another and the train was ordered to stop. The engineer was then ordered to point out the express car, which ht=. did, and while the attention of the robbers was distracted he ran away. Ine baggage and express cars were uncoupled and run nhead of the train some 300 yards, and both the mail and express cars were broken open. la» robbers failed, however, to get into the *afe After the robbers.left the train jivas'niad'e up again and taken intoOg- den.

Hint there were three^robbers. The registered rmiil poucir thrown out by the robbers was the through California pouch. That to Ogden and Salt Lake was not taken.

Oct. 14. — Superintendent Troy, of the railway mail service, stationed in this city, was notified 'Wednesday morning of the hold-up of the Union Pacific train by the postal messengers on the train. The fast mail carries the registered mail from the coast, nnd as a great proportion of such mail is correspondence between banks, and always a good proportion of cash, the loss is supposed by Mr. Troy to be of consequence. The amount can only fee ascertained after several days communication between the post offices alon» the coast and the railroad. "This Is the first time in many years that the mail cars have been held up, safd Mr Troy. "The bandits In th U>ast have contented themselves with rifling express boxes and have left the mall cars alone, fearing the restlessness with which the government secret agents pursue mail robbers. It was an exceptionally bold act to attack the fast mall of the Union Pacific railroad, one of the Ingres"carrier, of mall In the country. The government, cannot afford to leave iirrfornid the men.whcw»d_the act." TOWST LOtHlSD. f . Gang of Walked Robber. Bob »ndSet Flr« to Feryenr, Tenn. • Nashville, Tenn..

Strike In Ohio Will Not Prove /O f Ix>n» Duration. Cincinnati, Oct. 14.—A special to tho Post from Glouster, O., says there arn 2,000 miners on a strike in the Hocking valley. No further details are given. Columbus, O., Oct. 14.—A clause of the resolution adopted by the state miners' convention last week, referring the question of whether the wage reduction proposition shall be accepted or not to the local unions, provided that only those miners who could secure the present scale wages—01 cents per ion—should work pending- tho result of the vote. Under this rule about 1,500 have quit'work, but many of these same men have voted to accept, the reduction. The result of the vote must be announced by the itth inst.. and as it seems altogether likely now that tire reduction will be accepted, the shutdown is not likely to be of long duration.
