Lincoln, Neb.. Oct. 19 —"A man. who j
knowingly or unknowingly, will circulate i
e.anders about another man la not lit to
be a constable." aald Senator Hanna In
hla speech at the Oliver House In Lin- j
coin tonight, referring to William J. !
In the speech, which waa one of the
longeat delivered on hie present lour, Ben
nior Hanna bitterly denounced Mr Bryan .
for what he termed "hla attempts to
slander me in my own state." This Is
Mr. Itryan'e home town, and the speech ‘
of Senator Hanna was received with
mingled cheers a net hisses.
Senator Hanna referred to the charges
which Mr. Hanna said had been recently
made.by Mr l!ry.m that thr Republican
campaign mnnuger* had entered upon ex- j
tensive systems o' bribery In order to re- !
cure the election\>f the Republican ticket.
"In regard to that statement," aald
Senator Hanna, "before an audience In j
Lincoln, I want to hurl It back In his
teeth ami tell him It Is as false as hell
When It comes down to personalities I am

I said, to hurl It back and denounce him
as a demagogue-gn his own town."

Ben a tor Hanna then referred to Mr.
Bryan's alleged reference to him as a
“labor cruaher," ma le first during bit
senatorial campaign in IW7, and con
"I want to remind every man that

It is sakl at the Btnte Department that
Sir Conger's Instructions are sufficient
In breadth to enable him to proceed with

orders from the department.
However. a the Chinese counter pro

outline of the course he Is to pursue In

For obvious reasons Ihe fltate Depart

It Is Inferred that our objection Is based
on a lack of guarantees for the present
