Over 1 the battles of commerce and

There Is but one way known amon

I Fttr thousands of years those who have
I understood the scIence and function of

Their sole purpose is to acaumulate a

THEREBY EXALT THEMSELVES
at the expense of the producing millions
I Is they who secured the egislatian
in this country relaung to money and
bonds that ba produced the condition of
the people at the present time I
I IB because people generally have had
no accurate conception of the science and
function of money that has enableu those
who understood the question to secure
leirislaiinn I in thts country which coat
mously decreased the quantity of money
in circulation and produced a correspond
ing fall In prices In general
It was they who secured the passage
of the law of February ure which de
stroyed the use of silver for money in
this country
By that law one of the sour es of
money supply was cut off and as a result
the value the purchasing power of the
money that has come from the other
source of money supplythe gold mnes
has doubled and prices have fallen ac
cordingly
Thej who secured the passage of that
law were they who were large owners of
money and of national bonds By that
act the value of theCr money was doubled
and the value of their bonds was greatly
increased
The acts of congress that have been
passed since ISC relating to money and
bonds with two exceptions the ta Of
1878 and the act of IfcyO are among the
most Infamous acts of leg afon that
have been enacted by any government in
modern times

Sore the passage ot jthosclaws the
shrinkage in the quantity of money in

I gone on without Jet or hindrance and as
a result there has been a continuous fall

rupted and pauperized untold numbers of
I
our people and list paralyzed and to a

and other Industries of the country

The country during the = e years has
been and is now afflicted with financial
I aralj sis and unless relief is furnished
coon ihore is no telling what the conse
qucnces may be
This condition of things is the result
and the Jesuit only of the adoption by
this country of the British gold stand
ti It I The adoption of that standard
ineins uroitoun oondi pr il I j

ad prices It means ultimate Egyptian
conditions and prices
The KepuoHcan party proposes to main
tain the present gold standard and
thereforeJt in favor of pseient condi

unti other nations can be induced to as
sist In1 matt a change
Vhen other nations consent to help
us in that behalf there will be no need of
help because we will cense to exist a a
nation unless wo assert our independence
as it is row proposed to do
I is in favor of a constant shrinkage
in the quantity of money in circulation
all therefore It is In favor of lower
prices and I proposes if I succeeds to

PRESS PRICES DOWN
unless taxes they can be raised by increasing
j proposes to manufacture no more

may be made out of gold
How is I possible ior a nation or a
individual to become prosperous bj con
tinually increasing the amount of taxes
i that are to be paid is a matter that is
i beyond the comprehension of the ordinary
I mnd and yet this is the very thing that
the Republican patty proposes to do if
placed in power again
1 Before taxes CU tie paid money must
i be firot manufactured and delivered to the
i people Money does not grow it is man
I ufactured and the congress alone in this
country has the power to make it
I is affirmed by those who are in
favor of the Sod standard that ail
that is necessaiy to be done to make
i the people prosperous is to open the mills
and set the idie men to work I may as
weil o A understood first and last that the
mills of this country will never be opened
1 more than they are at present until the
mills of this country owned by the gov
ernmont in v men money is manufactured
are nrst opened to the free coinage of
units of money out of gold and silver
at the rate tstabirtied by die law of 1S3T
and un 11 they are opened there can be
no prosperity individually or national in
this country
AP well attempt to run an engine with
out oil as to do business without money
The minis wherein mOl < is made are
the most important mills to be kept run

NO MAN NEED BE ALARMED J i

people of this country ned in tJn con

world
The battle of this campaign is for the
purpose of securing legislation which will I
open those nvlis and if we do not suc
succeed ceed the light wnl continue until we do
it is said that what the people want is
employment and If they had employment
there would be no hdrd times no financial
distress Give to the people good prices
for their productsand their services and
they will empoy themselves to the best
advantage there will be no idle men
no surplus of labor
There never was a financial panic In
all the world when prices in general were

in prIce unless the quantity of money in

Financial distress bankruptcies strikes
comnidione 01 capital and of labor I

THE ETERNAL FALL OF PRICES
that pauperizes men paralyzes industries
and ruins nations
The National Silver party was organ
orgn
I lard fo uie expiess purpose of secunng
j an ircrrase i in the quantity of money by
1 the free coinage fq sliver so as to pre
ent at least any further fall In prices
in general and if through the efforts of
that pan this can be accomplished I will
have done a greater good to a greater
number than any party that was ever
organised since ths nation was es
I T mankind tablisJied and i will have conferred upon
a greater blessing than was ever
I conferred before In the history of the
j I world
The reason and the only reason why
i I silver was excluded from themints was
I to increase the purchasing power of
money made out of gold thereby giving
i to the money owner and bondholder a
greater command over the sets ces i > r met
eco au so ir fl
I and the products of the farm mill and
factory
We arc now entering upon the greatest
upn geatet
I straggle for the emancipation of the pea
pie from industrial bondage Industrial

If we succeed as succeed we must our

OUR COUNTRY WILL BE DESPOILED

cur institutions will be destroyed and our
civilization will perish
The gold barons of the world have form

been formed among men to control and I
regulate the volume of money in circula

They have set about deliberately and pre
meditatedly to enslave the American people
po
ple prostrate their Industries destroy
their opportunities and Impoverish the
nation and the people thereof This trust
must b brken Peope power must b de
stroyed and it will be destroyed by an
outraged and long suffering people when
they register their will at the ballot box
in November next

the direction and at the instance of the
gold barcns of this country and of Europe
They have heretofore controlled both of
those parties They now dominate and
i i contra the Republican party
THE NATIONAL SILViJR PARTY
proposes to assist in destroying the gold
trust and we appeal to all those WhO are
interesteu in humanity wuo are interested
In good government who believe that
1 men are more important than property
I who believe that the interests of those
i who create wealth are paramount to
those who are merely consumers to as
sist in this great struggle
That we snail succeed there can b no
question because this is a light in favor
of the many against the few I is a fight
between the producers o wealth and ag
gregated capital It is I a tight between
those who do the work of the world and
those who live without work I is a
light between Democracy and Plutocracy
In such a fight in SUCH a struggle can
there be any doubt a to the issue
Men and men only have rights and i i
is In defense of those ngnu that this
contest is waged That he who creates
weath should be the servant and slave
to h ts which btct creates is a doctrine I I
that should not be tolerated a moment i
1 should be stamped out The time has
arrived in the history of this country at j I i
least when the rights of Individuals shall
be paramount to all things else and they j
shall 1 be amply and fully protected bylaw
lawTne
The Republicans Insist that they are de
sirous ot protecting Amercan industries i I I
and American labor and in order to do so I
they propose to increase me taxes upon
imported products As well attempt to
i iase prices tn general or to stop falling
prices by increasing duties on imports as
to stop the ebb and tow of the tides It
never has been done
j IT CAN NEVER BE DONE
1
Such a thing Is absolutely impossible
I Manufacture for the American people
plenty of money American money net
I British money and they will protect
1 themselves and their Industries
I There Is no possible way of protecting
them except by an enormous increase in
the quantity of money in circulation I
i the people lave no money they are pow
erless to protect themselves except by
I brute force
The more money they have the more
easy i will be for them to protect them
selves against the aggressions of others
i The trouble in tins country is that
money Is too dear I is so dear that the
people are unable to buy it except by
making great sacrifices for that purpose i
i I lie sacnlices made by the American peo
pie for the past twentythree years for
tho purpose of sustaining the gold
standard are beyond human comprehen
sion I I
The people have resolved that they will I
make no more sacrifices for that purpose
Tney are about to reverse the conditions i
that exist in this country They are go
ing to shake off the human vampires who j I I
have fastened themselves upon this conn I
try and who for years have enriched i I I
themselves at the expense of the Ameri i
can people They to to
cn pple are going cease I i I
be slaves and they have resolved to be
not only free but Independent men I i
The Question before us in this campaign
Is not a question of taxation but I
A QUESTION OF MONEY
Money is the regrulator and controller of
prices and the motive power of commerce
and trade
I there be much money everybody pros
pers except him who refuses to work I
there be little money everybody is injured
except create him who lives on that which others
Pnces in general can only be regulated
and controlled by regulating the volume
of money in circulation ana he who as
sert to the contrary either has no knowl
edge of the science and function of money
or he is dishonest to say the least
The struggle among men in civilized
communities is to secure money in order
that they may be able to swap it for
things they do not create and which they
are m need of There is a continuing and
pressing demand for i upon all hands 1
The less there is of it in circulation the
greater the struggle will b for it and t
the more there is in circulation the less i
the struggle will be to secure it i
l is asserted by eminent financiers I
that this country cannot adopt bimetal I
lism without the consent of other na
tons In other words we as a people i
are incompetent to manage our own linan
cial affairs and must cal on other na
tions to assist us in that behalf I
THIS WE WILL NEVER DO
of because our inocmpetency to do it wouid be a admission
1 I we a a nation and a people are un
able to manage and control our finances
in our own way and in our own interest
without the interference of other nations
and without their consent then indeed
it may be said that we are not free not
independent I this be so then we had
better retire from business on our own
account close the doors of our national
edlllce and nail thereon thIS notice
This nation has retired from business
and ha gone into liquidation because of
the imbecility and Incompetency of those
who managed and controlled the estab

The first national convention that ever
declared in unequivocal language In favor
of the free and unlimited coinage of gold
and sliver at the ratio of 16 t 1 was the
convention of the Peoples party held in
Omaha on July 4 1S91 From the adoption
i of that platform by that party to tins
present tme the sentiment in favor of
the free coinage ot silver without regard i
to the action of other nations has grown
with accelerated speed The people
aware of
I I THE BALEFUL EFFECTS
of a constant shrinkage in the volume of
i money reso ved that there should be <
some positive and definite action taken
by some party of sunicient importance m
this country to correct the monstrous
wrong that was perpetrated upon them
by rite act cf 1873
They had lost confidence in the Repub
lican and Democratic parties and would
trust them no longer Therefore it was
that in January last in the city of ash i
In ton a conference of leadng citizens
of this country from all ranks o life was
ha tar the i > rinse of creatins a new
party pledged to secure monetary reform
A call was issued by that conference re
questing all those who were n favor of
making the money question the para
mount issue in this campaign to meet in
convention in St Louis on the 22nd day
of July 1S93
When the call was made I was believed
that the l > Peoples party and the Svcr
party would be able to agree upon a plat
form which would command
THE CONFIDENCE AND RESPECT
of tho people and would agree upon can
didates for the office of president and
vice i president and thereby unite a11 per
sons in this country who were in favor of
reform in our financial system
In the meantime the Democratic con
vention which recently met in Chicago
adopted through the efforts of the free
silver people of the country and the
sturdy and rugged patriots who consti
tuted the majority of that convention a
platform which so far a the money
question is concerned is I acceptable to all
persons who arc in favor of the free
coinage or siver
I The Silver party in convention assem
bled adopted a platform which presents
the issues involved in this campaign more
clearly and definitely and cogently than
any other platform that has been pre
sented to the people
The platforms of these different parties
and the diFcussIons public and private
that are now going on in this country
upon the money question the only one
thatis involved in this campaign clearly
indicate that the people are
i BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND
that question and that they propose this
year to assert their political independence
of all political organiations and political
bosses and vote In their own interest and
in the interest of good government and
stamp out the British gold standard in
this country root and branch
Hon WiUiaTi Jennings Bryan
The National Silver convention with a
unanimity unexampled in the history of
national conventions in this country nom
I inated you a the candidate of the Na

i You are now the candidate for the great

parties of which the Silver party Is not
i the least

formally notify you of its action and that

A GRAND ARMY
composed of three grand divisions which
Is now mobilizing for the purpose of fight
Ing in behalf of humanity on November
3 liSt the most important political battle
of this or any other age a battle which
is to determine whether this nation c
be a province of Great Britain and be
governed and controlled as that nation is
I by the money barons of Europe or
whether it shall b as the fathers in
I tended it to be a free and independent
i and sovereign nation

army Inspired as they are by the noblest
sentiments of patriotism under your lead

that day lift high their banner In triumph
over the defeated allied hosts of plutocracy
1R BRYANS RESPONSE I I
I was 1020 oclock before Mr Greet i
concluded and Mr Bryan began his
speech He said j
Mr Chairman Chairman of the NotIfication j i
fication Party and to the Members of
that Committee beg to reply a tis
time without the formality at a letter I
The platform adopted by the silver
convention contains but one plank and
that plank the plank upon the money I i
question or upon the silver question j 1
is identical in substance with the sliver
plank of the Chicago platform As I
have already discussed at length that
plank and i will not be necessary t
enter into any extended discussion at
this time I beg to assure the commit
tee that I accept the nomination so i
generously tendered by them on behalf
of the Silver party in the spirit in
1 which that nomination Is presented
Cheers I can appreciate the
apprclMe feeling
which animated those who assembled
in that convention I can
APPRECIATE THE HESITATION
In which the assembled there and
turned their backs upon the party with
which they had been associated I
know something of the strength of the
parties and because I was in a position
wliiae I looked forward to a possibility
of like action on my own part I can
appreciate the depths of a conviction
that led them to place the interests of
their country above the welfare of their
party Long cheering and shouts of
Good More than a year ag when
we were engaged in a struggle to
bring the Democratic party to an en
dorsement of free coinage the ques
tion was put to me whether in case of
j I I failure I would support the Democratic
nominee if he were on a gold standard
i platform I never believed that such
action was possible In the Democratic
party bat when those who questioned
me were not content with probabIlities
but asked again whether in the case
of that event I would support the
nominees I said as you will remember
that under no circumstances would my
vote be given to the man who would
In the executive office use his influence
to fasten the gold standard upon the
American people Great cheering
My convictions upon this subject are
not shallow convictions I may be In
error my friends none of us can claim
infallibility But we have experience
of history t guide us and our judg
j ment and our consciences and I stand
where the members of the silver
member te siver con
vention stood I would rather have the
i APPROVAL OF MY CONSCIENCE
j than the applause of the entire earth
j i I may be in error but I believe that
the gold standard is a conspiracy
against the human race Great cheer
I ing I would no sooner join the ranks
i of those whose purpose Is to fasten
that upon the people than to enlist In
I an army that was marching to attack
my home and kill my family Re
newed cheering
I can say therefore that I can ap
preciate the spirit which animated
those who have just tendered me this
second nomination and I can there
fore accept it in the spirit in which
they present it And I pledge them
that if elected they shall never have
cause to accuse me nf holnr falao tn
that trust More cheering My
j I friends when I cheerfg would
not support a gold sitandard candidate

I EXPERIENCE AND EXAMPLE
le me carry you back to the period

I Just before the war I you will turn
to a book recently publlined entitled
John Shermans Recodleotlons
laughter you will find on page 112 of
the first volume a portion of a speech
which he delivered in congress spe
Let me read this congess
I a willing to stand by the com
promises of 1849 and 1850 but when
our Whig brethren of the south allow I
this administration to lead them off I
from their principles when they
abandon the position which Henry Cay
would have taken forget his name and
achievements and decline any longer
to carry his banner they lose all their
claims on me And I say now that un
til this wrong is righted until Kansas
I is admitted as a free state I cannot i

There was the distinguished senator

1 I from Ohio asserting to the people o I

i that he was willing to accept compro I
1 mise after compromise but that the
time had at last come when he could go
with them rib longer that until cer
tain things were accomplished he could
j i not act with them
THE SITUATION TODAY
I Is but a repetition of history Compro
mise after compromliG has been sub
mitted to bc these silver Republicans
in the hope that the party of ther
Choice and love wuld at last bring to
the people the relief which they desired
But the Republican party like that
party in 1856 has been led off by an
other administration until it has de
serted Its traditions and its platform
and these Republicans iiave a right to
say to their Republican associates
We will go with you no longer until
this nation IL redeemed Applause
We do not ask those who present
this nomination to pledge their future
services to the Democratic party The
re Intelligence which directs them I
today in the discharge of this duty
will be with them four years from now
to direct them then in the discharge of I
the duties that will then arise The

The election law plainly directs that

coin Mr Bryan said
Ladies and Gentlemen am only
going to talk to you a little while
there are others here who are prepared
to discuss the issues of the campaign
in your presence and I am trying to
do as little work as possible I think
I have done my share so far as time
is concerned Cries of Your are
right It is now Just about one month
since I left Nebraska and turned east
ward It has been an interesting trip
I want to assure you that the senti
ment in favor of the free coinage of
silver is a growing sentiment Ap
plause It far surpasses my expecta
tions in the east and I found among
those people the producers of wealth
the farmers and the laborers who are
joining with you to free themselves
from the domination of those financial
Institutions which have controlled our
legislation and our financial politics
Applause You will find in the very
shadow of Wall street as
BITTER HATRED
to the Influences from which you have
suffered as you will find among the
farmers of Nebraska applause and
all through the east I found farmers
who had been Republicans who were
openly supporting the free coinage of
silver and were asserting thai they
had as much right to attend to their
business as the New York banker had
to attend to his business Applause
As against the maintenance of a gold
standard either for one day or forever
the Democratic party has declared for
the immediate restoration of the money
of the constitution Applause Not
only the Democratic party but the
Silver party and the Populist party
both of these have Joined with the
Democratic party in making this the
paramount issue rX the campaJsa
Our opponents began the campaign by
asserting that the American people
were not able to establish bimetallism
and then when they found there was a
revolt among the American people
against such a policy they com
menced a system of coercion and ter
I rorizing Insisting that the masses of
the people even have not the right to
determine what kind of policy they
want Applause This
TERRORISM AND COERCION
Is manifested In two ways In the first
place the heads of many great cor
porations are undertaking to compel
their employees to support the gold
standard My friends if the heads of
those corporations assert the right to
control the voice of those who vote for
j them we have presented to the Ameri
can people even a greater question
than the silver question Applause
If a corporation has the right to con
trail the vote of an employee on one
question it has the right to control it
on every other Question Cries of
Right you are and applause
Continuing Mr Bryan said My
friends do you think you are under I
a government of the people I want I
to ask you wha you think will be the
result if we get to be a government
by the banks Applause If we could
trust our affairs to a New York banker
we might endtre tt for a time but
when you remember that the New York
banker is under the control of the Lon
S don banker I ask you to reflect be
fore you submit the destinies of a free
people to a few financiers Applause
We had a failure in this city last win
ter a failure which in my judgment
was largely due to the sale of bonds
and to the fact that the eastern bank
was drawing In money from circulation
from business from the channels of
trade to invest in government bonds
If my friends you have a financial
policy which permits a few financiers
to close your banks at will and swal
low up youi deposits and impoverish
your people I want to ask you if it is
not time for you to consider whether
this cannot be stopped Cheers We
have been toJ that we cannot borrow
money from abroad unless we have a
financial system that is satisfactory to
the people abroad My friends you let
them control your financial system and
you will never see a time when you can
get out of the clutches of those who
are dominating your financial policy
Great cheering
Talk about arrayIng one class
against another I want to ask you why
it Is that every Democrat who Is in
terested in a syndicate or a trust or
has a salary from a railroad corpora
tion that is more than his other prop
erty I want to ask you why they are
all arrayed against the Democratic
party Cheers Why Is ft It is
because the Democratic party has de I
clared against the issue of bonds In
time of peace and the trafficking with
syndicates Thats right from the
artnrt C Tt Is heercttse the
party Is
I
OPPOSED TO THE TRUSTS
and the prices which the trusts have
instituted It Is because the Democratic
party believes In the control the reg
ulation and the restriction of all cor
I poratlons so that they will serve the
purpose for which they were allowed to
exist Great cheering If those con
nected with trusts are flocking together
In the Republican party may we not
appeal to ail the smaller business men
who have felt the Iron heel of theI
trust and who have been driven out of
business by its unlawful competition
I Cheers If we are to lose all the at
j torneys of these great trusts a cry of
Let them go may we not appeal
with confidence to the support of the
people who have been plundered by
these trusts while their attornen have
received a part of the plunder Cheers
and shouts of yes We are not re
sponsible for the arraying of one class
against another These people have
defined the business men to be a few of
not the producers of wealth but the
exchangers of wealth or those who
try to corner our wealth and they are
trying to array them against the rest
of the people The Republican plat
form in the state of New York said
that we ought to have a business ad
ministration conducted by business
men In behalf of the business interests
of the country What do they mean
by that Do they call the farmers
business men Cheers and cries of
no Oh no simply
PRODUCERS OF WEALTH
But if a man goes on the board of
trade and makes more in an hour bet
ting on the price of what you raise
than you make In a year he becomes a
business man These people who have
attempted to array a few of the pee
pie against the rest of the people and
who have insisted that the affairs of
this government should be put In the
hands of a few when we have com
plained what euphonious names they
have given to us They have been call
Ing up disturbers of the public peace
and they have called us anarchists my
friends Great applause My friends
these terms simply express the con
tempt which they have for the great
mass of the people of this country
Cries of Theyve been doing It for
twentyfive years
These names they call us simply
peers that they are not wining to trust
the destinies of this republic in the
hands of the people who have created j I
its wealth in times of peace and who
have fought its battles in times of wet
Applause Show me those people
who now call us anarchists and I will
show you a class of people who if we i
had a war would never go to the
front but they are the very people
who slander those who would
FIGHT THE BATTLES
to save their property Applause and
cheers
Mr Bryan said that when he was
called a disturber of the public peace
it is gratifying to meet the toilers of
his own city who endorse him as one
they were willing to trust He said
he expected a majority in this Lan
caster county and a majority of not
less than 25000 in Nebraska He
thought even this majority was not
large enough Continuing he said
My friends gentlemen down In New
York called attention to the fact that
sentiment was all on our side in this
raTnnai ° n and one min said that a
man could now write a poem in favor
of syndicates running the business of
this country Applause Do you
j i know what word rhymes with syndl
I i cotta It is hate and you cannot
write a poem and you cannot sing a
l song in favor of the syndicates con
trolling the financial policies of this
nation because while their policy ap
plies to hate the man who thinks and
the heart of the man who feels the
force of the financial policy that has
j I been forced upon this country which
1 they want to continue until foreign na
tions come to our aid and assistance It j I
is a sentiment that appeals to the
pocket book and overshadows the ap I
I peal to the best feeling of man Ap
plause
j Now I must stop or I will make a
speech Cries of Go on we havent
half enough You know that I
would hate awfully to have the New
j i York papers say that I had driven an
I audience away in my own town
Prolonged cheering followed the con
clusion of Mr Bryans speech He was
followed by Mr Greet anti the assent

a Powerful AildrcK
EDINBURGH Sept 8At todays Bit
ting of the trades union congress Mr
Malllson the new chairman of the par
liamentary committee made a powerful
address in which he said that the change
in the manner in which the communities
now dealt with labor questions was large
ly due to the socialists who had aroused
the national conscience by exposing the
misery and degradation arising from tnt
defects in the industrial system Though a
the socialists had paved the way for
remedial legislation he said their reme
dies would not in his opinion bring about
the decided results
Mr Mallison advocated the policy on
the part of trade unionists of keeping out
side the lines of the present political
parties In the fight for living wages The
payment of salaries to members of parlia
ment ought to be made a test upon the
next election The report of the parlia
mentary elections expressed doubt as to
whether henceforth it would be prudent
for the trades union congress to associate
itself with meetings like the international f
socialist congress recently held In Lon
don but declared it was desirable that
trade unionism and cooperation should
work together The congress passed a
resolution expelling from the sittings the
reporters of all newspapers employing no
union compositors The passage of this
resolution excludes from the congress the
reporters of every newspaper in Edin
burgh
A resolution was adopted declaring that
the hours should be limited to eight a
day In all trades and occupations and
Instructing the parliamentary committee
to draft a bill on these lines

NOT A BIT OF TRUTH
NEW YORK Sept 8A Herald special
from Danvers Mass says Despite the
I repeated denial by the Right Hon Joseph
Chamberlain that he was to have an offi
cial conference with Secretary Olney re
garding the Venezuelan controversy the
rumor continues to be circulated Mr
Chamberlain declared yesterday in the 4
most emphatic terms that there was not a
shred of truth In the rumor
I have no expectations he said of
meeting Mr Olney during my present visit
to this country There was never any
foundation for the story that we were to
have an official conference I have no
authority to suggest anything of the
kind
