"Imperialism -s not an Issue made by po
litical parties, but an Issue made by the
people before the assembling of cither of
the great national conventions. Two years
and a half ago the people of this country
were filled with horror at the atrocities that
were being enacted upon the Island of Cuba
at our very doors. The tyranny of three
renturlcs had culminated In acts of hor
ror that thrilled the American heart.
"It was then that the Congress of the
United States, voicing the sentiments of the
American people, declared war against
Spain. But coupled with its declaration of
war was a disclaimer upon our part of any
attempt at carrying on a war of subjuga
tion against those people, but It was sol
emnly declared that when peace would be
restored in this Island these people would
be left to establish a government for them
selves. This disclaimer upon the part of
Congress justified our Government in break
ing the peace of the world.
"In our war with Spain the pepple of the
Philippine Islands were our allies; they, too.

tell you that when Agulnaldo and his little

"I am very much ple.t"d with the

so enthusiastic that my only fear
was that they would get under the

could not help It. Mr. Bryan was
much gratified. The people did not

John B. Stanchfield. Democratic nominee
for Governor of New York, spoke largely
on Slate Issues. In conclusion, he said:
"No greater danger to the" Slate exists
than the fieilng among the parties and
public men that the people do not take
note: that they forget wrongdoing; that
they will fall to punish; that when the
time comes around they will vote the party
ticket regardless of the record.
"The failure to punish the erring party
and the erring officer oils the slide of that
party and that officer Into deeper degrada
tion. The Independent voter places sand
upon the track. The Independent line If" a

era. The great Democratic States of the

presidential candidates from the Empire

industry, no honest occupation, no honest man need fear the suc

of this country are enjoying their share of the Government's
protection." William J. Bryan,
Mr. Bryin bfgan his sreech by teferrlrg
to the ast audlei.ee before him and said that
It Indicated an interest In the campaign
which must be gratifying to all who real
ized the Importance of tho questions In
oivel. He declared that he was not vain
enough to accept tho enthusiasm manifested
as a ironaI tribute to himself, because, bo
said, "the individual counts Tor nothing ex
cept that he may - the Instrument used
by. the people to carry out their own will."
He Immi-dluttly entered upon a defense
cf the Dtmocratle causes, and said:
"To say that the peopln gathered here
who support our cause are the enemle? of
honest wealth is a slander which could not
bo uttered without the one who uttered It
knew It to be false. We ar not opposed to
that wealth which comes as the reward of
hcitest toil and Is enjoyed by H101.0 who
give to society something In return for that
which society throws upon thim. The Dem
ocratic: partv to-day isj not only rot tl"
enemy of honest wealth, but the Democratic
party of to-day Is tho best friend of thit
wealth that represents ability of muscle or
of mind employed in its accumulation."
Mr. Brynn went on to say that tho party
draws the line b( tween honest wealth and
predatory wealth, "between that wealth
whih Is a Just compensation for services
rendered and that wealth which simply
measures tho advantages which some citi
zen has taken over many citizens."
Hi declared that no honest industry, no
hones: occupation, no honest man, need fear
the success of the Democratic party. The
Democratic party, he said, "showed Its hon
esty by stating what it believed and telling
the people what It will do."
Jierernng rurtner to the Republican claim
of prosperUy. Mr. Bryan claimed he was
willing to admit that the army contractors
and the trust magnates might be prosper
ous. "A man who gets special privileges at the
hand of tho Government can prosper under
Republican administration," h; said, "but
I deny that the wealth-producers of the
country aro enjoying their share of the
At this point there were cries of "Hanna.

asking his audience not to tri2e with a
Great Groirth of Trunin.
Taking up the subj'Ct of trusts. Colonel
Brjan declared that they had grown under
this administration more rapidly than ever
before, and he asserted that tho Itcpub
llcans refused to meet tho Issue they
created. Ho declared that the Bresldcnt
"spends more time warning jou not to
harm your good trusts than he doe3 in
telling you how to hurt the bad ones."
In tho same connection he rtferrcl to the
position of Governor Booeelt and Sen
ator Hanna on the subject of trusts, and a
reference In both Instances was met with
groans and hisses.
"Mr. Hiinna says thero are no tru9ts."
Mr. Bryan went on. "Aro you going to
send a man out to hunt the trusts who
knows where every trust treasure Is, but
says tne.rc are no rrustsr jn response to
this last Interrogation a voice from the au
dience responded: "We will send you."
Mr. Bryan again quoted from President
McKinley'H inaugural address on the sub
ject of trusts, and charged that the Presi

trust laws r.or recommended new ones. Hl3

and permits the trusls to go and oppress

the Increase of the standing army, and
when he usked If we should hale a large

iltence. He declared that the Preddent Jmd
made bis request for un increase of the
standing army from I.VK0 to IX'.OO" tv.n
months before the war broke uu: in the
1 Philippine Islands.
"Was it lurcause-," he asked, "they knew

they knew Imperialism and war and blood

Ho then took up the question of his con
nection with ihe ratification of the treaty
nnd said that the Republicans couid not find
a Senator who would not say he had voted
for It before he (Sir. Bryan) had favored
It and continued: "But I can prove by Sen
ator Wellington, a Republican, that without
his vote, it would not have teen ratified;
that he would not have ioted for it but
for thn fact that the I'reMdent promis'sl
him that th Philippine Islands would not
be held permanently."
Mr Bryan then declared fhnt ho -
willing to assume the responsibility for the
ratification cf the tnaty If the Republicans
would take the responsibility for tho treaty
themselves and for what had happened
"Tho President is responsible for that."
he said, "and If he had given to the Fili
pinos the samo assurance of Independence
that he gave to the Cubans. m,r .'.
would have been fired in .Manila and those
lop!e would ha.-e been our friends to-day."
AVII1 Convene C01iKrr.11.
Mr. Bryan then explained his reason for
supporting tho ratification of the treaty
saying that If it had not been rejected tho
matter would still have been in the hands
of the President, skj far as this country
was concerned, but he believed It tetter to
ratify the treaty and leave Americans to
deal with the Filipinos than to have thn
Spaniards deal with them. He declares!
that the treaty had not conferred upon the
United States the title to the Philippine!.
"We can now do what the Republican par
ty ought to have done and our platform
declares that we shall do it. 1 have "aid
tbat the first act of the administration will
be to call Congress together and ask it to
do now what it ought to have done a year
and a half ago."
This sentiment was applauded.
.Mr. Bryan referred to the charge that he
was responsible for the continuation of the
war in the Philippine Islands, and said
"It I am guilty of this, charge, then 'who
Is responsible for the fatt that our fore
fathers fought the same battle a hundred
years before I was born. They should
know." b: continued, "that It was the Al
mighty who. when he gave life to the
Filipino, gave hrm the love of liberty They
should know that It was God who linked to
gether In even human breast life and lll
erty: and what God has Joined together let
no Republican paty rend asunder."
