Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 15. The first daya
session of the Liberty Congress of the Na

day. About 200 accredited delegates wero
present, and more are promised for to-morrow.
The speeches of Edwin Burrett Smith,

forth much enthusiasm. The public meeting
In the evening was largely attended and
tho reading of Courke Cockran's letter was
the signal for tremendous applause.
Hut the greatest demonstration of tho
convention so far came in the afternoon,
when the venerable George S. Boutwell, ex
Governor of Massachusetts and Secretary
of the Treasury in tho Cabinet of President
Grant, concluded his address as permanent
chairman, with the declaration that he had

The delegates rose ln their seats and ten

Herbert S. nigelow of Cincinnati invoked
the divine blessing on' the deliberations of

The Supreme Issue.
Mr. Smith said in part:
"Wo meet an unforeseen crisis ln the
progress of liberty. The American common
wealth for more than a century pursued its
course with liberty as its watchword. It
stood In advance of all other nations as the
exponent of Justice and peace. Two years
ago. without warning, a sordid commercial
ism, wiilch in a moment of panic had
grasped the reins of power, sought to make
ours as other nations are. It was under

Is not them, but ourselves, who are on trial.

Judge Hailett of Colorado said his State
was sure to go for Bryan, whatever the ac

Edgar A. Bancroft said:
"Whenever the Declaration of Independ

the Republicanism of I860, but could not

mistake the nomination of a third ticket.

it is just as important to elect Mr. Bryan.
I did not vote for him four years ago. I
am a strong advocate of the gold standard
and I think he is mistaken about the money
question, but I also think he is thoroughly
earnest and honest and sincere. I believed
his advocacy of the ratification of the treaty
of peace with Spain was perfectly right- and
logical, and that was what first determined
me to vote for him. I don't believe a
candidate for President ever before had
the courage to say to a convention that if
it did not put into its platform a. thing
which he believed to be right, it would h.-u e

the Republican party, a party at that Urns

of life or death to the Republic. In such a
crisis shall we stop to consider whether sl'

"If a mistake is made In the next ad
ministration, should Bryan bo elected, the
people can remedy it in four or eight yean;
the country would not be destroyed. If tho
currency is impaired we can redeem it. It
was impaired during tho Civil War and wo
redeemed it afterwards. If you have not
been deceived In a man, and he promises
to do what is right, you aro not to blame
if you try him. Mr. Bryan to me stands in
that position. Even his enemies say noth
ing against him as a man. In this very
city he has made the most explicit prom
ises to pursue that policy which we advo
cate. 1 am disposed to trust him. If I
look on the other side. In my opinion Pres

and then done several things that do not
run ln harmony with his promises. But
now he pledges himself to nursue a policy
which we condemn. If we vote to support
him in that policy wo have no riaht to
complain. I believo Bryan is as honest in
his purpose to redeem this country from
degradation and its policy of Imperialism
as any man who sits in this audience.

"Mr. Bryan's election of Itself will put a
quietus on the the imperialistic adventure.
No polioy specifically condemned by tho
peoplo has ever been adopted Into our Bys
tcm, nnd imperialism would prove no excep
tion to the rule. Mr. Hoar's suggestion that
tlie Senate would refuse to follow a Demo
cratic President in a policy of humanity ap
proved by the people does faint Justice to his
own pitrlotlc capacity, when liberated
from the exigencies of a campaign for re
election his intellect and his conscience
would be restored to harmonious nnd effec
tive co-operation. Imperialism, rebuked at
tho rolls and shown to be unprofitable,
would not have a singlo supporter In the
country. The country having pronounced
for Justice, politicians of every shape and
description will be eager to do Justice, nnd
when the desire for justice is sincere tho
way to Justice is soon discovered.
Mr. nryan's Sincerity.
"The Democratic platform declares that
imperialism Is the paramount Issue of the.
campaign and Mr. Bryan's speech at In
dianapolis accepts this conception of the
issue, emphasizes It and vindicates it- But
a declaration that Imperialism is a para
mount issue is equivalent to a declaration
that it is tho sole issue, for no presidential
election ever decided more than ono ques
tion. In mv Judgment, tho platform actu
ally adopted by the Democratic convention
should be much more satisfactory to sound
money men than any of the substitutes
suggested bv older and more conservative
managers. Since nobody pretends that Mr.
Bryan's opinions on the questions raised by
tho Chicago platform of 1S9G have been
changed, his refusal to disguise them In any
way is highly creditable to his honesty, and
honesty Is the first essentia4 of patriotic
"Mr. Bryan's conversion to a belief In
sound money would, ln my opinion, be a
reason for national rejoicing, but any aban
donment or abasement of the frankness and
sincerity which have always distinguished
him would be littlo short of a national
calamitv. Wo need not accept Mr. Bryan as
an Infallible or even as a sound authority
on economics to acknowledge that his integ
rity, his truthfulness and absolute sincerity
have been among the most salutarv in
fluences of this generation on our political
For Justice and Liberty.
"The best evidence of our capacity to deal
with tho Issues of 1602 or 1904. whatever they
may be. is to deal inteligently now with the
issue of 1900. On that issue Mr. Bryan
stands for justice, liberty and the, Constitu
tion, and since all these wouia no impcriiea
bv his defeat. It It to be hoped thnt the
liberty convention will not he swerved from
supporting him by prejudices springing from
past antagonisms or by groundless appre

Clara Kopp Wroto for Mrs. Pinlcham's Ad
Tlcc and Tells what it did for Ur.
" Dear Mns. Pinkiiaji : I have seen
eo many letters from ladies who were
cured by Lydia E. 1'iukhatu's remedies
that I thought I would ask 3-our advice
in regard to my condition.
I have been doctoring for
four years and have
taken different pat
ent medicines, but
received very lit tic
benefit. I am
troubled with back
ache, in fact my
whole body aches,
stomach feels sore,
by spells get short
of breath and am
very nervous. Men
struation is very ir
regular with severe
, bearing down pains,
cramps and back
ache. I hope to hear
from vou at once."
Claka Korp, Hockport,
Ind., Sept. 27, 189S.
"I think it is my duty to write a
letter to you in regard to what Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound did
for me. I wrote you some time ago,
describing my symptoms and asking
vour advice, which you very kindly
gave. I am now health- and cannot
begin to praise your remedy enough.
I would say to all suffering women,
Take Mrs. Pinkham's advice, for a wo
man best understands a woman's suf
ferings, and Mrs. Pinkham, from her
vast experience in treating female ills,
can give you advice that you can get
from no other source.' " Clara Kopp,

Without a Single Failure.
Hundreds of letters have been received from parties who were
slaves to the drug and drink habit and who had tried almost
every other treatment in vain, but they are now rejoicing In
absolute freedom, as they have been cured by the new discovery
known as tho Antlnarcotin Treatment, which In four to eight
days positively and permanently cures every case, even those so
called Incurable cases. This drug and drink habit, which Is a
curse to humanity. Is a disease and cannot be cured by will
power. The reason that this grand discovery makes such phe
nomenal cures Is that it is not a substitute, but an antidote
which eradicates the stimulant, be it morphine, cocaine or any
like drug or stimulant, within three days, and within a week's
,tlme It places the patient upon his or her feet a new person. It
also eliminates nervousness and pain and brings on a natural
soothing ar?d dreamless sleep. It Is positively the only cure
known to science which permanently cures and leaves the con
stitution of the patient strong and vigorous. Any one calling or
sending their name and address to G. H. Roose. Mgr. Narcotism
Hospital, 2016 Lucas avejiue, St. Louis. Mo., will receive full in
formation as to this wonderful cure; also a long list of testimo
nials from responsible people, which will make the most skep
tical a believer In the efficaciousness of Antlnarcotin.
