Fort Mill Workman Comes Near to

Louisville, Ky., Special.-IIon. W.
T. Bryan spoke here on Wednesday
-ight to an immense crowd and was
introduced by Hon. Henry Watter
;on. A distinct ovation was accord
!d the famous Nebraskan.
Mr. Brayn read a statement *which
a part, follows:
"In my speech at the New York
,eeeption I made some remarks con
!erning the ownership of railways
and thought ihat I had expressed
myself so clearly that my position
3onld not be misconstrued even by
those who desired to misconstrue it.
rhe New York speech was prepared
in advance. It was not only writ
ten but it was carefully revised. It
;tated exactly what I wanted to state
and I have nothing to withdraw or
modify in the Itatement therein
made. What I say tonight is rath
er in the nature of an elaboration of
the ideas therein presented.
Reiterates Former Utterances.
'After quoting from the Democrat
ic platform of 1900, that 'a private'
monopoly is indefensible and intoler,
able' and after laying it dbwn as a
principle that public ownership
5hould begin where competition ends,
and that the people should have the
benefit of any monopoly that might
be found necessary, I stated that I
'aad reached the conclusion -that rail
roads partake so much of the nature
of a monopoly that they must ulti
mately become public property and be
m-naged by public officials in the in
terests of the whole community.' I
added: 'I do not know that the coun
try is ready for this legislatioi. I da
nut know that the majority of my own
party favors it. but I believe that an
ig;Creasing number of tic lembners of
all parties see in public ownership a
-adre remedy for discriminijation be
tween persons and plac-s and for
the extortionate rates for the carry
ing of freight and pass-ngers.

should be given a fair- trial, we might
expect to see the railr-oads still more
active in polities unless our experi

experience we had had with fran

statement of my views has been as
sailed by some as an attempt to force
these views upon the D~emocratie

or- as we arec likely to have it.'
