OPENING OF THE
Sherman, Foraker and Woodford Speak
PLAIN TALK FOR LABORING MEN
Monster Meeting in the Aftcrnoou
and Evenings-Ten Thousand Per
oons in One Tent Listen to the
KieakersOIuch Enthusiasm Is
Columbus, O., Aug. 16. The Republi
cans of Ohio opened the presidential
campaign at Columbus yesterday with
much enthusiasm. Ten thousand
voters came from the cities, towns, and
hamlets of Ohio to lend their presenee
to what was generally and properly
thought to be the firstlmportantmeetlng
of the campaign. The visitors and clubs
and delegations began to arrive about
7 o'clock in the morning, and it was hulf
pust two in the afternoon when the lust
large delegation marched from the xta
tlon to the meeting.
All of the speeches were most re
spectively und intently listened to. The
great uudlence began to assemble for
the day meeting at 12.3U o'clock. It was
almost two hours later when Messrs.
Shermnn, Foraker, Woodford. and
Bushuell drove up to the big tent on
Broud street, where more than 10,000
people were ussembled. The. tent was
brightly decorated. When the speakers
entered there wus loud cherlng.
(jovernor llushnell presided, and,
after some words of welcome, intro
duced Senator Sherman. The greeting
which Senator Sherman received was
most coidlul, und when, a moment luter,
lie begun his speech with a euology of
Major McKlnley the audience cheered
lustily. Senator Sherman got the clos
est attention; not only wus there a deep
and general desjre to hear his discussion
of the money question, but in the mind
of every listener wus the notion that
the speech he was uboiit to hear consti
tuted, In reality, the Hist step toward
Senator Sherman's campaign for re
election to the United States senute.
Senator Sherman was In good health,
und seemed an vigorous as ever. He
took great cure not to exert himself too
strenuously, and lie carried out the de
termination by reading his speech. The
reeling among Republicans toduy is
that the Hist great und effective battery
has been opened upon the enemy's lines,
and the chairman of the com
mittee says today's meeting is
to be followed up by county meetings
all over the state, uud that In twenty
duys there will be a decided und pal
pable change In the attitude of the
silver men In this state, und that the
progress of their propugunda will be
HKNATOK SilRKMAN'S SPKKCIt.
Senator Sherman occupied about
forty-five minutes In reading his
speech. He said:
A citizen of Ohio has been selected by
the Keuubliean national convention as
their cumlldute for president of the I'ntleil
Suites, and we ure here to rulliy ami sup
port his nomination. SVe take pride In
William McKlnley. not only for the honor
conferred upon Ohio by the convention,
but because we know hlin to be llttcil lor
thut great ottlce. We know thut since tils
boyhooil his lite has been pure ami stain,
less, that as a soldier In the I'nlon army
he wus brave and loyal, thut as a member
of congress for many years he exhibited
the highest mental traits und rentler-d
great services to his country, and 'that as
govenor of Ohio he proved his capacity to
perforin difficult executive duties.
1 propose on this occasion to confine
my remarks mainly to what Is known as
the free coinage of sliver at the ratio of
sixlee.ii parts of sliver to one of. gold. This
Issue Is thrust upon us by the Democratic
party, or, rather, by the Populist Ic branch
of tho Democratic party. Hold and sliver
coins are recognized by all commercial
nations of the world as the best stundard
of value, us 1 the measure of every ar
ticle of desire, of everything that Is
bought or sold. These two metals not only
measure all other things, but they meas
ure each other. Their relative value con
stantly changes. Twenty-three years ago
sixteen ounces of silver were worth more
than one ounce of gold. Now thirty-one
ounces of silver can be bought by one
ounce of gold. This fluctuation of value
cannot be prevented. It is caused by the
changing demands for and the Increasing
supply of these metals from the mines.
Both are nesccessary as money, silver to
supply the daily wants of life, and gold to
measure the larger transactions of busl
nesss, especially In exchanges wtth for
eign nations. How to maintain the par
ity of the two metals at a fixed ratio has
been, is, and always will be a difficult
problem, not only in the t'nlted States,
but In the civilized world.
Senator Sherman then gave a history
of the changes In the ratio between
gold and silver In this and other coun
tries, and the legislation affecting the
use of the two metals as money, and
It Is certain that from 1801. when Mr. Jef
ferson became president, to the close of
Buchanan's administration In lull, the
Democratic party was a gold party, op
posed to silver and all forms ot paper
Senator Sherman then spoke of the
repeal of the Sherman law and the ex
pressed declaration of congress to use
both "gold and silver as standard
money" and said:
And here, fellow citizens, we ought to
stand. 1 appeal to Democrats and Repub
licans alike. We are all Interested In hav
ing a sound and stable currency founded
upon gold and silver. We cannot by law
tlx the value of either metal or coin or of
any of the articles that enter Into the
wants of life. The great law of demand
and supply affects the value as it does
Iron, copper, or sine. All have fallen In
market value by means of new discoveries
and Improved methods of production.
The senator then spoke of the Im
possibility of maintaining the ratio of
gold and silver under free coinage at
any other than the bullion ratio, and
said that the Democratic programme
meant sliver monometallism and noth
ing more. He continued:
When we contemplate the great amount
of debt and credit that Is unavoidable In a
vast but new country like ours, we nat
urally shrink from any measure that will
either rob the lender or do Injustice to the
borrower. It Is Impossible to estimate
the wrong and Injustice that will be done
to creditor by ttie scaling of nearly one
half of debts due them. The very threat
to do it will lead to the prompt and htrsh
collection of debts before free coinage
can become a law.
It Is sometimes said of creditors that
they are bloodthirsty tthylocka, aristo
crats, blood-suckers, extortioners. It may
be that there are among money lenders
slnie men who merit these epithets, but

situation In the middle and western
states, the battle-ground, Is excellent
for our success. It Is all that I could
expect. I am more than delighted with
the campaign work done."

London. Aug. 6. The story In detail
of Dr. Prldjof Na-nsen himself of his
Arctic expedition and the adventures of
his party, together with the scientific
results obtained, first of which la his
success In penetrating to the highest
latitude hitherto trod by the foot of
marv, numely 86 dVgreea 14 minutes
north, are given to the world by the
Chronicle yesterduy, following the story
by Jackson of the finding of Nansen,
contained in a dispatch from Vurdo yes
terday. Dr. Nansen says:
"The Pram left Jugor Strait Aug. 4,
1893. "We had to force our way through
much Ice along the Siberian coust. We
discovered an Island In the Kara Sea
and a great number of Islands along
the coast to Cape Cheljuskln. In sev
eral place we found evidences of a
glacial epoch, during which Northern
Siberia niuat have been covered by an
Inland Ice to a great extent.
"On Sept. 1G we were off the mouth
of the Cleiiek river, but we thought It
waa too late to go In there and fetch
our dogs, us we would not risk losing
a year. We pussed the New Siberian
Islunds Sept. "2. We niude fast to u

north, and In longitude 1X1 degrees ::T

to be closed In by the Ice,

and winter from the constantly exposed
and violent ice pressures, lint the Kram

was constantly low with little varia

weeks the mercury was frozen. The
lowest temperature was 62 degrees be

health during the whole voyage.
"The eleetrio light, generated by a
windmill, fulfilled our expectations.
"The most friendly feeling existed
and time passed pleasantly. Kvery
one made pleasure his duty and a bet
ter lot of men could hardly be found.
"We saw no hind and no open water
except narrow cracks, in any direction.
As anticipated, our drift northwest
ward was most rupld during the win
ter and spring, while the northerly
winds stopned or drifted us backward
during the summer.
"On June 18, WM, we were on SI de
grees 62 minutes north, but we drifted
then southward only. On October 21 we
pussed 82 degrees north. On Christ
mas Kve, 1S94. latitude 83 degrees north
was readied, and a few duys later
degrees 24 minutes, the furthest north
latitude previously reached by man.
"On January 4 and 5 the Kram was
exposed, to the most violent Ice pres
smes we experienced. She was then
lirmly frozen In Ice of more than thirty
feet of measured thickness. This Hoe
was overriden by great ice masses,
which were pressed against the port
side with Irresistible force, and threat

ABANDONED THE FRAM.
"As I now with certainty anticipated
that the Fram would soon reuch her
highest latitude north of Franz Josef
Land and that she would not easily fall
to carry out the programme of the e
peditlon, viz., to cross the unknown
Polar basin, I decided to leave the ship
in order to explore the sea north of the
route. Lieutenant Johansen volunteer
ed to Join me and I could not easily
have found a better companion In every
res)ect. The leadership of the expedi
tlon on board the Fram I left to Cap

qualifications as a leader and his abil

fear but that he will bring all the men
safely back, even if the worst should
happen and the Fram be lost, which I

Our purpose was to explore the sea
to the north and reach the highest
latitude possible, and then to go to
Spitsbergen via Franz Josef Land
where we felt certain to find a ship. We
had twenty-eight dogs, two sledges ami
two hayaks, for possible open water.
The dog food was calculated for thirty
days and our provisions for one hund
red days. We found the Ice In the be
ginning tolerably good traveling, and so
made good distances, and the Ice In did
not appear drifting much. On March 22
we were at 85 degreeB 10 minutes north
Although the dogs were less enduring
than we lioiied, still they were tolerably
good. The ice now became rougher and
the drift contrary. On March 2G we had
orily reached 85 dlegrees 19 minutes
north, and on March 29 85 degrees 30

KNOCKED OUT BY MRS. BRYAN
Jones Wanted the Headquarters in
Washington, and Was iu No Pleas
ant Frame of JMind Wheu He Was
Ovrcrruled-Chicugo Has Been
Washington, Aug. 26. Tn the follow
ing brief statement Chairman Jones of
the Natlonul Democratic commltte ac
knowledges the destruction of all his
plans for the opening of the Bryan and
Scwall campaign and announces the
partial organization of the committee:
The headquarters of the national Demo
cratic committee will be established at
Chicago, with a branch In Washington
city. A punt of tho cunipulKU commit
tee, sufficient to conduct the business of
the campaign, for tho present, has been
uppointeil. The gentlemen selected so far
aie: -Mr. John R. McLean of Ohio; D. T.
Campau, of Mic higan; ,1. i. Johnson, of
Kansas; Clark Howell, of llcoi'Kla; it. it.
Bnialley, of Vermont, und Jlr. (Julian, of
Illinois. Mr. J. L, Norrls lias also been
selected as assistant treasurer of the Dem
ocracies national committee, located at
Washington, other appointments will be
mailo as occasion requires. Tim execu
tive committee will be appointed later.
.Mr. tiormnn was requested to accept a
place on the cumpulgn committee. He
declined because of the selection of Chi
cago, as he could not very well ko bo fur
from his own state. He will, as a member
of the noitionul committee, engaice active
ly In the campaign, especially In his own
and In neighboring states.
Chairman Jones was In no pleasant
frame of mind when, he prepared this
Information for the newspapers, but he
bus learned one thing in his brief term
ns campaign manager, and that is to
hold his tongue unless he has something
pleasant and popular tn say. He does
not take the public In his confidence
therefore to the extent of telling them
why his plan for a main headquarters
In Washington and a branch In New
York, and Senator Arthur 1'. Cormun
in charge of both, bus been abandoned.
The public understand, however, that
It Is because the Uoy Orator and his
wife plainly foldChulrman Jonesand his
committee that the cumpnlgn should be
managed from Chicago, and because the
Tillmans and the A II gelds and the
Stones and the other Democrats of that
Ilk declared that no sound-money Dem
ocrats like the Maryland senator should
conduct a campaign of the people and
not of the politicians. Chairman Jones
does not deny that he has been defeated
and he and his friends are In no pleasant
state of mind.
"WILL PACK HIS CRIP.
Put In a few days he will pack his
grip and go to Chicago, there to re.
main in charge of the Democratic
headquarters until election day. He
fears the effect of turning the campaign
over to the elements that controlled the
Chicago convention, but he has re
ceived his orders and must obey. Wash
ington will be used as a distributing
point for campaign literature to lie
sent out under Congressional franks,
And Washington will also be the
headqualters of the Nutlonal Com
mitteeman from Maryland, Arthur P.
Oorman, who. It Is generally thought
will be the mentor of Chairman Jones,
notwithstanding his declination to serve
as chairman, of the Executive com
mittee. Chairman Jones Is greatly disap
pointed to be deprived of Mr. Gorman's
company during the campaign. They
have long been personal and political
friends, and the Arkansas senator, ap
preciating and acknowledging his lack
of experience In political mutters, de
pends almost altogether upon the ad
vice nnd counsel of the astute politic
ian, who wus chairman of the national
Democratic committee In the cam
paign that resulted in the first elec
tion of Orover Cleveland. But Chicago
and Washington are only 800 miles
apart, and but twenty-four hours is re
quired for th transmission of a letter
between these two cities, and tele
graphic communication Is a matter of
a few moments only. Chairman Jones
in Chicago, therefore, and Committee
man trorman in Washington, still hope
to be able to exercise in a large meas
ure a point control over the work of
the national committee.
Mrs. Bryan was the main Instru
ment In selecting Chicago and In prac
tically rejecting the services of Sena
tor (lorman. Before the Bryans left
town yesterday Mrs. Bryan pointed
out that the light for her husband's
election was to be In the middle west
ern states, and that Chicago wns the
natural headquarters In view of this
fact. Furthermore, she recalled her
husband's speech at Chicago when he
replied to Senator Hill. It wns in that
speech that Bryan declared that "new
leaders have come t.o the front und
they are to have charge of this new Is
sue." He said Very much more In the
same strain and all this was recalled
to him yesterday. With the retire
ment of Senator Oorman and the ap
parent Indifference of Senator Hill to
the Bryan ticket. It -was mude Very
