MAYOR REED SHOWS
UP THE TRUST EVIL.
Forcible Speech to a Large Audi
ence at the West Knd
LABORING MEN ENLIGHTENED.
ITow They Are Deprived of Their
Independence ly the threat
Combines. Fostered by
Mayor James A. Reed of Kausjs City
spoke last night to an aujienee of 3.500 at
the West End Coliseum. The meeting was
held under the auspices of the Bryan and
Dockery Worklngmen's Club, and Mr.
Heed's speech dealt particularly with trusts
and the baneful results to the working
Mr. Reed is one of tho most eloquent
speakers In the State, and ho arraigned
the trusts and the Republican policy, which
affords them aid nnd support In a vigorous
and forcible manner, which won him the
earnest applause of his audience.
At the conclusion of bli speech, Mr.
Reed received an ovation. With one accord
the audience roaj to Its feet and gave him
threo hearty cheers, and then swarmed
upon the plaiform to shake hands with him
and congratulate him. Later, a reception
was given him at the JefTerson Club.
James J. Butler, congrei-Ional candidate
for the Twelfth District; James W. Folk,
nominee for Circuit Attorney: W. Jeff Pol
lard and Michael J. Gill also uddressed tho
Mayur Heed's prerba
In the course of his remarks touching
trusts. Mayor Reed said:
"Laboring men, you who earn jour
bread by the sweat of your brows;
you who have tptnt years in becom
ing skilled In .ome branch of me
chanics; do do you not tremble for your
liberties? Are not your rights more closely
affected than those of any other class of
our citizens? A skilled mechanic who. If
hi: Is discharged by one employer car. llnd
work ti ith any one of a hundred other men
engaged in the sa-ne business, is an inde
pendent man. If his employer does not pay
nlm fair wages, or mistreats him in any
way, ho can obtain employment at his craft
from other men engaged In a. like business.
But where nil of the various institution
engaged in manufacturing the juirticular
thing in tho making of wnich he Is skilled
are brought under one general management
then if lie is discharged, he must either
starve or be forced Into some line of busi
ness where- his hand has neither skill nor
cunning. Under such circumstances he
ceases to be a free man.
"In tho past there was no class of citi
zens more Independent than a skilled me
chanic; to-day conditions are rapidly be
ing brought about whereby it' Is no longer
necessary to DiacKiist an empioje, pecauao
there Is no danger of his lindlng employment
elsewhere, for all the Institutions in which
he may hope to (lad employment ore being
centered under one head, and discharge
means ruin. Under such circumstances no
man is a free citizen. If hla employer cuts
down his Wages; If his employer Insults him;
if his employer commands htm to work an
unreasonable number of hours, pray what
remedy has that man left hlmT if he quits
his Job there Is no other for him. If he re
sents tho Insult, discharge awaits him. If
he is not iultcd with the hours of work
he has the option to accept them or cease
work altogether. When this condition ob
tains I tremble for the future of my coun
try. So longt'as tho laboring man is inde
pendent so long as he can tlnd work at the
hands of any one of a number of employers,
so long aa he can assert his rights without
fear, be may be trusted to form In the fu
ture, ns he has in the past, the great heart
and brain and strength of our American
Republic, but a man who knows discharge
means ruin, and who. though his heart may
resent his Injury, still as he lifts h!a hand
to assert his righti. sees rising before him
the face of his wife and his children, will
bow his head and submit to the yoke.
A Battle for Independence.
"Laboring men, this Is a battle for your
Independence, for your rights as citizens,
for your ability to earn a living. It Is a
struggle for your very existence, and every
man who carries a dinner-pall to his work
in tho morning; every man who tolls with
his hands: every man who earns his bread
by the sweat of his brow, ought to engage
In this struggle as he would engage in a bat
tle for tho very existence of his home. For
It Is a struggle for his rights, his liberties,
his very existence
"But these trusts aflcct not alone the la
boring man. They affect the Independent
merchant: they affect tho banker and all
classes of people. Let us take an Illustra
tion. A few years ago there were hundreds
of independent butchers scattered all ovfr
this State. 'Every city, every village, every
hamlet had meat markets conducted by
men who bought their cattle from the farm
ers direct, slaughtered themselves, and
placed them upon the market
"To-day the great Beef Trust of North
America has driven all of these Independ
ent butchers, or practically all of them from
business. The methods pursued have been
the methods of all trusts. Going Into u.
small village, they have said to the Inde
pendent butcher: Buy your meat If lie
refused, they simply opened a meat market
in competition witn mm, and sold the nn
cst quality of meat for less than ho could
possibly plaeo It upon the market In a
short time, he found his customers gone,
his business ruined and himself bankrupt,
and then, hnvlng forced him to retire from
business, the trust-owned meat market
promptly advanced the price of meat far
beyond what It had picviously been. This
has been carried on systematically through
out the United States, until to-day the in
dependent butcher has, for all practical pur
poses, been driven from business.
"The same methods are being pursued by
the great trusts controlling other lines of
business. They are establishing their
branches In the various cities, nnd how long
will It be until. Instead of the Independ
ent merchant of our cities, thero will be
brench stores of some trust, operated by
some hired man and the Independent mer
chant will become a thing or the past.
"Even tho banks of. our great cities and
villages may bo crushed, and undoubtedly
will be crushed by the samo methods. A
consolidation of a few of the large banks
of the United States, and of the Astors,
Vanderbilts. Goulds, Rockefellers and Car
ncgies, could. In a few years, absolutely
control and run thft banking business of the
United States, and could drive out nil
banks not In the combination. The audacity
of these institutions. Is almost beyond be
lief. In the Grip of the Trnitn.
"The Steel Trust dictates terms even to
tho Federal Government It was proven In
an lnx-estlgation in Congress last winter
tbut. while they were holding our Govern
ment up for t(f for every ton of steel
plates for battleships, they were selling the
same materials to tho Cz.ir of Russia for
1215 per ton. When they will, without hes
itancy, undertake to dictate to the United
tates, anil successfully carry out their pi
ratical schemes, what Is to become of the
"Even the great corporations of our cities
have felt the oppressive forco of their Iron
hahds. The Metropolitan Strctt Railway
Company of New York City is capitalized
at Jil.OOO.OOO. It Is a very wealthy and strong
Institution, and yet the manager of that
corporation stated In a public interview
a few months ago that his company was
about to place new rails upon our streets;
that thero was but one place where they
could obtain them: thnt the managers of
this Institution had enormously advanced
the price: that in addition to that, they
had told his company that unless the order
was placed by the 1st of tho next month
the price would be advanced 10 per cent
further. Ho said the-worst of it was, they
kept their word, so his company was com
pelled to pay thousands upon thousands of
dollars simply because It had the temerity
to not obey the dictates of this monopoly
by placing an order at the exact time it
"If. then. I say- again, the Federal Gov
ernment nnd these mighty Institutions can
le thus coerced, what Is to become of the
plain, common people? There is but one
of two propositions before us either the
people must by law destroy these trusts, or
be by these trusts destroyed.
'The very existence of the Republic Is at
stake, for when the common people are
robbed of the means of livelihood, with It
Koes their Independence, and when the In
dependence of the common people Is &
ptroyed, then the Republic falls."
Colonel Dalton Waa Hlasrd.
Toplar Bluff. Mo., Oct 22. Colonel Rich
ard Dalton, who spoke here this afternoon
under Jlepubllcan auspices, was greeted by
less than 200 people, a majority of whom

marks were, conllned to State Issues and an
crralgnment of Dockery, who was a target
for very bitter abuse. During bis speech.

For a campaign opening, the one held last
eight by the Republican City Committee
at Uhrigs Cave waa a dismal failure. An
unobservant auditor might have concluded
he had stumbled onto a meeting of the
undertakers' union. There was painful lack
of enthuslsm. The Merchants' Leaguo
Drum Corps marched around the hall once
and went out into the cold night air to get
wnrm. The Twenty-second Ward Drum
Corpi remained a few minutes longer, and
got a chilly feeling, which It thawed on
tho outside also. Tiie hall was f.ilrlv well
filled at the beginning. After Nathan "Frank
had been selected to preside over the meet
ing, tho crowd liegan to melt away. Many
of them had business elscwhero. and they
silently joined the great majority on the
front sidewalk. Mayor Ziegenhein did not
succeed In lindlng his way to the hall. The
night was evidently too dark for his Honor,
but his spir't wus there several times.
Judge Klein addressed the meeting en
general matters, explaining what he
thought wan the duty of a Judge on the
bench. Several In the audience went away.
Judge Wlthrow delivered a tirade of abuse
against the election and police laws. More
of the audience slipped away Into the dark
ness. John H. Pohlman was Introduced, but tho
crowd saw through the gauze of Mr. Pchl
man anil recognized tho familiar form of
Mayor Zlegi-nheln with a ghostly one-can-die-power
giln on Ills face. Mr. Ponlman's
effort was llko the short horse. Ziegenhein
seemed to rob up to confront the chair

of the street cleaning efforts and tho gen

tion to the end.
The Immediate cause of death was de
scribed as brain exhaustion, incident to ex
treme weakness due to old age and to sev
eral attacks of tlckncss from which ho hail
FUirered for" the last year and a half. Since
Saturday afternoon Mr. Sherman has been
most of the time unconscious, rallying rar
tially at Intervals, when rilght nourishment
was given him.
Yesterday afternoon evidences of the ap
proaching end wero manifest, nnd ho failed
to regain consciousness after 2 o'clock, pass
lug away pencefully Just after dawn broke.
About 1 o'clock this morning he rallied
somewhat from the ntupor and turned him
self over In bed, but after that he grad
ually sank until the end came.

Death nf Ills Wife a Cruel Illoir.
Mr. Sherman and his family left here
early In the summer for the old home
stead nt Mansthld, O. They were
there but a short time when Mrs.
Sherman, whose health hud been very frail,
died. This was a severe blow to the Sec
retary, from which he never fully recovered.
He remained at Mansfield until tho mlddlo
of. September, when he returned to Wash
ington. Ho was much broken In health
and spirits, but for a time ho was able
to move about In the open air nd to tako
short rides around the city. Ior the past
three weeks or more, however, ne had been
conllned to his lied, his gei'ral debllltv

Among Mr. Sherman's foi.ier associates
his demise, will lie sincerely felt without
reference to-party. In this Held of activity
his service hud been particularly able and
successful. He had served so long that ex
perience added to his natural talents. He
was a recognized master of all the great
public questions, past and present, and he
had at his fingers' end all the arrayal of
facts, figures and precedent to give com
plete elucidation to a subject
He was regarded ns a guide, rather than
as a party leader, for his conservatism,
caution. Innate good Judgment nnd power
of effective execution inspired confidence in
any line of action which he advised. This
was particularly true In later years, when
he held a leading place In the Senate on tho
questions of finance and foreign affairs.

Amid the most heated arguments and the
widest differences, the entrance of the ven
erable Ohio Senator into the debate was the
signal for a period of calm and dispassion
ate consideration of tho" serious arguments
of the case. His appearance In a debate was
often like the sudden entrance or the
schoolmaster Into a room full of unruly
Mr. Sherman was not regarded as a great
orator. His force was more In the cool
apalysls of a proposition, appealing to the
judgment, rather than to the emotions, and
carrying conviction. He presented the sim
ple facts without any attempt at ornate dic
tlen. As a debater he had few equals. Of
late years he seldom entered into the dally
discussions on lesser topics, but reserved
his efforts for the greater questions.
The personal appearance of Mr. Sherman

22 years old, and his bride of 19. as they

It was through death that they gave fut
their marriage. The bride had lived with
her parents and was known as Miss Daisy
Blydenburg. It has been discovered through

Tho reason for tho tragedy Is hard to
find. Tho families of tho young people
wcro on friendly terms and no obstacle had
been placed In tho way of their courtshlnt.
Bettls's parents aro well-to-do and his pros
pects in life wero bright. Both wero active

friends. Tho young woman, who was an
accomplished musician, played on the piano
for a few minutes for tho pleasure of
friends at her homo.
The couple passed the Phoenix Hotel
about 11 o'clock, and Bettls handed a note
to the clerk. Grey son Paddock, with the re
mark, "If you knew what that contained
you would bo astonished."
It was addressed to his parents, and

and his trips to this dty have been bo
quietly made that the men who hare been
on the outlook: for him have not learned
of his presence here until after his return
The execution upon which the arrest ot
Treasurer Roberts will be made was issued
In the civil suit brought by Jane Lv Brooks.
Ms sister. In which she recovered a Judg
ment for O.IC.76, which remains unpaid.
Tho execution being returned as unsatis
fied against the property of Treasurer
Koberts. the caplaa was Issued to aelxa his
body If It can be found.
Mrs. Brooks in nearly 89 years old and
feeble. Many years ago she gave to Treas
urer Roberts 2StU5 In trust, to ltrrest, so
that sho could obtain S per cent Interest.
Mr. Roberts Invested 113.055 In railroad
bonds, and. according to the report filed by
Daniel F. In?raham, It said:
That between November 6, 1835, and Janu
ary 1, 1S97, Ellis H. Roberts appropriated
and converted to his own use out of tho
money owed plaintiff and without her
knowledge or consent the. sum of 05,200."
Mr. Ingraham was appointed a referee by
Justice Truax to take testimony In January.
1S99. Mrs. Brooks having become suspicious
that all was not right and Interest not be-,
lng paid regularly. Treasurer Roberts at
first denied emphatically that he had ap
propriated any of Mrs. Brooks's money, but
when confronted by positive proof that the
trust had not been carried out. according
to the understanding of Mrs. Brooks, Rob
erts admitted that all the bonds of his sis
ter's In his possession had been used as col
lateral security for money, advanced to him
for' his personal use.
Mr. Roberts's lawyers contested the case
bitterly, but Referee Ingraham reported ad
versely upon every point raised and of
ficially declared that there was no doubt
that tho trust fund had been misap
propriated, and Judgment was entered for
the full amount claimed by Mrs. Brooks.
James E. Torrcnce, counsel for Mrs.
Brooks, said to-day that his client had ben
rendered penniless and dependent upon rela
