Where lately every one was a bull, not any but sellers appeared and prices were without any support. It was a case where any figure was sat• isfactory, so the wheat was sold. Nothing in the way of news could help the market under these circumstances, and .December, which closed Tuesday nt •7S%c and Wednesday morning 'was quo,ted at 70%c On the curb, went begging at- 73y 4 cv A sale was made at 70'/ s c.

Sandusky, 0., Oct. 21. — It was 11 o'clock when Mr. Bryan's carriage I rolled down to the open square Tuesday j niglil completing his 17 hours'journey ' from the river to the lake. It was tknie hours Inter than Chairman McCoii\illu hud assured Comiiutteeman Turnpr that he. would reach the Lake Erie port, nnd the cold, raw lake air sent a chill through'tlie-jcandidate-ash.-. !«:ft the i:nr, and had largely sea Hero :i the thousands of jjeopie who had waii'jd nl!. the evening for his arrival. There were still from :i,000 to 5,000 people left, however, who gathered abouttheillumina ted pagoda in the square, ond the cheers which greeted' the democratic 1-Mdcr .showed that even the frosts of an October night could not chill nor rain dampen the ardor of tlie l^rio county democrats. It was many minutes before the speaker could be heard. M.r. Bryan finally mounted the railing, his liyirc silhouetted against the bright, ele«tric lump behind 'him. and his deep ^ice penetrated 'the farthest circle of the crowd. He told the people thnt he had been aucnseu of arraying class against' class in this contest, and yet these vorj people had for years been legislating jr. favor of the bondholders as agairPt Ihe wealth producer. He confined himself solely to t.hi- money question and spoke for 30 minutes to a crowd vhich was apparently being recruited '.row every quarter the longer bespoke. Mr?.

They were entei'tained instead by John W. Tomliuson. of Alabama, who is accompanying Mr. Bryan. At Greenville, .where the Ohio campaign was ended, Mr. Bryan spoke for 15 minutes to about 4,000 people. . Six or seven thousand .composed the spectators at the first meeting in Richmond which took place in Glen 'Miller park. The air was keen and only those in the audience whose political sympathies allowed them to enthuse wore able to keep warm. Mr. Bryan in his speech quoted a speech made by Oliver P: Morton in the United States senate in the Forty : second con- 1 gress, and concerning it said: "There Senator Morton was declaring apalnst the policy of contraction and wt to-day are .declaring as-ainst the same policy of contraction. There .he was as- sertlngr that an Increase In the supply ot money would brlnp prosperity and progress and enterprise and we assert the same thing to-day. Wo assert that an Increase Ir, the supply of money will reverse the grinding conditions under which' we have DUltered for the. past few years, and the position wlilch we take must be approved by any person who will study the- money •guestlon without puttlnu before his eyes 'enough grold coin to blind hlself from the proof..". ' . Comment* on yellow Badjrcx. About 4,000 people were at the second Richmond meeting, which wns addressed by Mr. Bryan from the balcony of the Hotel We.sicott. So numerous were.the yellow McKinlej; badges in that audience that the eandidate had something to say afiout them: ' "Any person," he said,"who has an opinion oupht to have .a reason to base that -opinion upon. I want to ask those who, by •wearing yellow badges, indicate their support o£ republican Ideas to consider- two or' three ihlng-s. If the republican party believes that the sold standard ia a good thinK, you ask yourselves why the republican party e.Vwoys talks about •sound money 1 Instead of a gold standard, Why do they use ambiguous phrases to conceal their meaning;? I assert tlmt 1( the republican party thought the ROW standard was good they would not attempt to deceive people by usinb' 'sound money, but they would say 'gold' and let. the world know that they meant gold." Mr. Bryan had some other things to say about people who wore the orange in practically the same language used by him at other places where the count' er demonstrations were attempted. -At Cambridge City Mr. Bryan made • speech to about' 2,000 people.
