The government has bad much work in

CHICAGO, Sept. 11. "William H.
Taft and William J- Bn'an, rival candi
dates for tho presidency of tho United
States, will moot at Chicago October 7,
at a banquet given by tho Chicago As
sociation of Commerce, according to an
announcement in ado here today by "W.
D. Moody, business agent of tho asso
ciation. The speeches will be nou
political. In addition to Mr. Bryan and Mr.
Taft, it is expected that some eighteen
governors of states and a number ol"
congressmen aud senators will bo at
tho banquet. Mr. Taft 'a acceptance
was obtained at Cincinnati recently,
when a committco of prominent mem
bers of the Association of Commerce,
accompanied by a committco of tho
deep waterways commission, which will
begin a threo days' session hero on Oc
tober 5, called on tho Republican can
didate. Bryan Also Agrees.
Mr. Br3-.au agreed to bo present dur
ing a loug-distaucc telephone conver
sation which he held last night with

ocratic national committee. Mr. Bryan
was called from his bed aboard his train
at 1 a. m. at Torre llaute, Ind , and tho

Tho coming together of the two men
looming largest in tho public eyo was
mado posHiblo bv the deep waterways
convention, at which 3000 to 5000 dele
gates aro expected to bo present. As
this movement, as well as tho Chicago
Association of Commerce, is non-partisan,
it was felt that the occasion was
an excellent one for tho meeting of the
two candidates. In extending both in
vitations tlie non-political motive of tho
banquet was emphasized, and it is be
lieved that both Mr. Taft and Mr Bry
an will confiuo their remarks to water
ways and possibly business mattors. H
is hoped to sccuro the attendance of J.

Taft's first speech-making trip will be

for New York today to personally rep
resent the candidate boforo tho national
committee in arranging this trip, which
will tako in at least tho States of Mis
souri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois
and Jndiana. Two other trips aro being
planned, ono through the Eastern States
and another through a number of the
Southern States. Those, however, will
not bo worked out until the Western
.journey has been arranged.
Judge Taft and National Chairman
Hitchcock had an extended conference
today over tho long distance telephone,
tho result of which was tho hurried de
parture of Mr. Vorys for New York.
"Mr. Vorys, having beeu with mo for
some time, knows exactly my Ideas con
corning this trip," Judge Taft ex
plained. "And it was regarded as moro
satisfactory that ho should go to New
York and tako up tho details of tho trip
with the committee. Hu will bring
back with him, probably Sunday, tho
result of tho committee's decision."
It was said that Mr. Vorys took with
him many specific instructions from tho
candidate. Mr. Taft gave it as his
opinion that his Western trip wftuld not

BRYAN IS GUEST
Democratic Candidate Receives
j Ovation and Royal Welcome
j at Wheeling.
SPEAKS TO MULTITUDE
ON CAMPAIGN ISSUES
Declares That Taft Has by Ut
terances Shown Dissatisfac
tion With His Platform.
WHEELING, "W. Va., Sept. HI.
"William ,T. Bryan this- afternoon and
tonight was "West Virginia's guest. A
royal welcome -was accorded him as his
privato car Olivette, containing him
self and party and a big reception com
mittee, crossed tho Ohio river and en
tered this city. The river front was
a mass of humanity, and as Demo
cracy's leader stepped on "West Virginia
soil, he was cheered to the echo. His
ear was stopped directly in front of
the hotel, but so great was the crowd
that even r.ho combined efforts of tho
police could not prevent him from be
ing forced to struggle his way through.
Speaking tonight to a multitude of
persons, Mr. Bryan pointed out the dif
lercnccs in tho two platforms and mado
a plea for Democratic supporr. lie made
frequent references to Mr. Taft and told
his audience that the Republican candi
date was conducting his campaign on
a platform so obnoxious lo him that ho
was forced to continually patch it up.
Much stress was laid on the labor and
anti-injunction planks of tho Democratic
Had Eventful Day.
The visit to Wheeling was the climax
of an eventful day in Ohio. From tho
time tho Democratic candidate left Co
lumbus early in the morning until ho
crossed the Ohio river into West Vir
ginia the crowds which gathered along
tho line of travol made insistent de
mands for his appearauco and to "talk
to us a little.''
At Sleubenvillo a large crowd gath
ered aud Mr. Bryan addressed them.
Mr. Bryau put to his audience these
"How many of you believe that, the
United States' senators should bo elect
ed by direct vote of the people? How
many of you believe that wo ought
to havo a publication of campaign con
tributions, that is above a rcsasonablc
minimum, boforo election?"
A sea of hands went up. "Now."
said Mr. Bryan, "by your votes you
havo declared that you slrpid on tho
Democratic platform instead of on tho
Altogether tho reception of tho Dem
ocratic candidato in Ohio and in this
city -were among the uotablo happenings
of the campaign.
Refers to Defeats.
In his address here tonight, Mr. Bry
an referred to the fact that, his third
nomination for tho presidency had a sig
nificance that could not be overlooked.
"Iu former campaigns I suffered de
feat," he said, "and those defeats
would have been sufficient to have
eliminated mo from politics if my claim
to public attention was based upon per
sonal merit." But, my friends, I have
not been vain enough to believe- that
any large part of the interest felt in
me, of tho confidence expressed in me,
of tho affection felt toward me, is
duo to personal qualities. I have be
lieved, 1 db bcliovo that tho fact that
J maintain my placo in politics is flue
to tho strength of tho things for which
Tho Republicans, ho declared, mny
well ask themselves whether they had
not under-estimated Democratic policies
when those policies were strong enough
to givo him a third nomination.
Referring to tho fact that tho over
shadowing issuo of the campaign from
tho Democratic standpoint was "Shall
tho peoplo rule," Mr; Bryan said that
he was sure that his first speech had
some affect, "for 1 heard two distinct
echoes, ono from Cincinnati, aud ouc
from Utica, N. Y."
Reply to Taft and Sherman.
Mr. Taft, he paid, at tho first oppor
tunity had announced that the people
did rule, and Mr. Sherman, in his first
speech, had said that that could not
be tho issue becauso it would bo an in
sult to the people to say that they dil
"Well, my friends," said the Demo
cratic candidate, amid laughtor and
chooring, "I will tako you into my confi
dence and tell 3011 that I did not ex
pect Mr. Taft or Mr. Sherman to plead
guilty, for, as the Republican partj- is
in powor, thej' could not havo admitted
that the peoplo dod not rule without
signing their death warrant. I am
grateful for tho attention they havo
given me, for by asserting that tho peo
ple do rule they have implied that the
people ought to rule."
He charged that the Republican party
deliberately and with malice afore
thought had prevented tho rule of tho
people. On tho subject of publicity o
campaign contributions, Mr. Bryan,
speaking of Mr. Taft, said:
Hard Blow at Taft.
"Ilo'read our platform and then ho
remembered his own platform and tried
to .ivunP from his platform to ours,
but fell bctweon tho two. Why do I
say 'fell between tho two?' Because
his platform said nothing on tho sub
ioct; our platform demands publicity
beforo election, and Mr. Taft took a
half-way position and offered to com
promise" on publicity after election."
He assorted that nine-tenths of the
Republicans agreed with the Democrats
on that proposition instead of agreeing
with their own party, "or even with
"The Republican convention at Chica
go," he said, "preferred secrecy in the
matter. Whenever publicity of campaign
contributions before , election was at
tained, he declared, it would bo much
easier to get control of the government,
for the great favor-seeking corporations
have dominated the government largely
through the aid t hoy havo given in tho
electiou of Republican candidates to of

"Becauso 3'ou and I and' other Re- j ,'1

voting for tho Republican candidate for JH
president. And again, I ask WI13 should j j JH

members of tho legislature pledged to 1 f
elect him becauso he took this oath? 'Al
You, and each of you, covenant and y
agree that you will pray, and never censo M HH

of the prophets upon this nation; and 'H

binds tho individual to wreak von- jlB
gcancc upon tho peoplo of the country 1 1
in which ho lives, upon 3-011 and I, upon ll

I think tho laws of God upon the con- TH
science of man nro superior. I do, Mr. JH

were given to inc. nnd I knew It was from iH
God. that the law of God would be mora , IBH
binding upon me. possibly, than tho law , IH
of the land, and I would have to do what , '-JIH
God told me, If I was a Christian. And ;
then I would further stato this, thnt If it 1 J dH
conflicted with the law of my country In dl
which I live, I would go to some other " -jH
country where It would not conllict. . tlH
If I believed It as from God, I J nH
would consider it compulsory upon me to 1 jH
obev It; and, as I stated, Senator, If I m iH
lived In this country and that command ' , i jM
of God was against the laws of my coun- i iH
try, I would move to somo country where t fH
1 could obey tho law. ( tV.H
