RALEIGH K C Sept 17 Xorth
Carolinas capital city had William J
Bryan for its guest for two hours to
night
Mr Bryan arrived at 7 oclock with
I
s Governor Carr and others and was met
at the Southern railway station by a
reception committee a flambeau club
and a brass band He was escorted to
Nah square a beautiful open park
near the station where 6000 people had
l gathered in defiance of the heat to
hear him The speaking stand was
glow with electric lights the name
Bryan being displayed in big electric
letters < over the Tjlace where the Demo
cratic candidate stood At each corner
of the square big bonfires burned and
he lights threw the big crowd into
pioturesaue relief
CHEER AFTER CHEER
went up as the candidate ascended the
stand Clement Manley the chairman
of the Democratic state committee and
Hall Ayer the chairman of the Popul
ist state committee presided jointly
over the meeting After his speech
Mr Bryan went to the Park hotel and
held a Deception the corridors and
lobby and the streets outside being
packed with people while it lasted
Mr Bryan said
I am informed that the Republican
national committee has sent out cir
culars to various religious papers and
organizations calling attention to a
danger which they say threatens these
religious organizations if we have free
coinage of silver I want you to remember
member that the Republican party and
the Republican speakers and the Re
publican candidates most of all these
have denounced the Democrats for
f ting to array class against class I
want to say to you that the Republican
can party is doing more in this country
today to array class against cass
to the
than any others They appeal
laboring man and tell him the gold
standard gives him
j A HIGHERPRICED DOLLAR I
for his wages without telling him that
It also makes i Impossible for a very I
larg numer of men oliO want to I
labor to get a chance to earn one of
t e highpriced dollars Cheers
Ou in our state the Republican com
mittee of one of the counties appealed
to the school teachers trying to show
them that a gold standard was a good
thing for them thereby trying to set
J the school teachers against the rest
of the people and now they have ap
pealed to the church organizations and
church papers and are now trying to
r i array them against the free coinage of
fcller Well I could stand any appeal
made by the advocates of the gold
standard t almost any class better
than an appeal made to the preachers
and teachers of religion I there is
one thing that the church people of
this Wintry could afford t array them
selves against i is the gold standard I
and It Is being advocated by the American I
can people at this time Applause j I
And yet the Republican party is j
APPEALING TO CHURCH PEOPLE
to Hike their place upon the side of the
gold pace How things have
changed in the last LSOO years Look
at the people who are at the head of
the gold standard propaganda In the
United States Look at the bondhold
ing class and the moneychanging
classes and turn back ISo years when
the m > ek and lowly savior threw the
tine kind of people out of his temple I i
because they had made his house aden I
Enthusiastic cheer

come and Appeal to the mini ers of
the gospel and religious papers to save
t gosp the wrath to come
1 O aughter and applause My friends
when certain ministers of the gospel
denounce the great mass of people who
stand behind free silver when these
ministers have denounced these advo
cates of free coinage and have token
their places upon the side of these
great aggregations of wealth I remind
them that when the savior was here
it was the common people who heard
him gladly the very people whom
these ministers toJay call anarchists
and socialists Great applause My
friends when I find there are not
many of them but they are quite con
spicuous when I find these men cast
Ing their lot upon that side exhaust I
ing abusive language in their descrip
tion of the ira masses of the people
of this country I feel like saying to
them that i they would take their
chances with Dives I will risk my

CHARLOTTE X C Sept 17Half
past eight this morning was the early
hour set by Vllliam J Bryan in com
plying with the request of his Char
lotte supporters t make a speech here
The special train furnished Mr
Bryan by the North Carolina state
reception committee arrived from
Asheville at a late l hour last night and
was sidetracked while the candidate
slept At a 1 Mr Bryan left the I
train and under escort of the local I
Knights of Pythias and numerous I
horsemen proceeded to the Postoffice
park where he addressed several
thousand people at 930
Mr Bryan said among other things
The Republican party has beer
legislating to make a dollar dearer and
they deny that legislation has any
thing to do with the dollar What pro
vision does the Republican party make
for the supply of the money that you
need None whatever
I AM NOT SURPRISED
that even men who have been Republicans
cans all their lives are now in favor of
the free coinage of silver Great ap
plause I am not surprised when I
find that Republicans who recognize
their principles of finance and apply
them to the money question a not
surpr that they desert the Republi
can party this year when i comes out
and attempts t defend the Democratic
administration which was repudiated
by the Democratic party itself Great
applause You remember here hi
North Carolina the Republicans have
made more capital by denouncing this
administration than in any other way
What do you think now when the
Republicans of North Carolina become
the sponsors for the Democratic administration
a
ministration Wild applause I am
not surprised that earnest and sincere
Republicans prefer to stand with the
Democratic party in demanding bi
metallism which even the Republican
party of four years ag said was
I DEAR TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
through tradition I am not surprised
that Republicans who eight years ag
stood upon a platform that denounced
I the Democratic party for its attempt
to demonetize silver I am not
I te f
surprised that those Republicans join
with us today in demanding bimetal
lism which has been the historic policy
of the United States and which until
1S73 received the support of all the
statesmen Republican Democratic
Whig and everything we ever ha in
applause this country Long and continuous
The special train left Charlotte for
Durham at 10 oclock
The Bryan special reached Concord
at 1035 a m and Mr Bryan delivered
a short speech from the covered stand
1 to about thousand people who
a thousnd peple were
1 very hearty in their applause 11
I Bryan said that If the mints are open
ed so every man wih an ounce of
I silver can convert it into money there
I would be no surplus to drag down the
I price Can the United States take all
the silver offered If GO we can
maintoln the parity The only way
t know absolutely Is t try but we
ARE ENCOURAGED TO TRY
Remember the silver of France Eng
land and Germany nearly all coined
and used in the world Is worth more
now a compared with gold than it
would be here
At Salisbury reached at 1115 Mr
Bryan was introduced to 4000 people by
I Theodore F Kluttz chairman of the
North Carolina delegation at Chicago
who seconded Mr Bryans nomination
Considerable enthusiasm marked the
te
candidates speech and the cheers grew
in intensity as he proceeded Just as
Mr Bryan was boarding his train he
I gfo itS
was presented with the foot of a rab
I bit killed at midnight in a church
yard during the dark of the moon
I Those who saw the presentation man
ifested their appreciation of the inci
dent by exercising their lungs and just
I a the train moved off the candidate
called out
I the people who have given me
rabbits feet In this campaign will vote
i for me there is i no possible doubt of
I my election
This is Mr Bryans Salisbury speech
I I am informed that Andrew Jack
son was a law student in this city and
I am glad to tread the soil made sa
cred by
THE HERO OF NEW ORLEANS
Applause The principles for which I
stand before the people are the princi
ples taught by Jackson when he was
the idol not of the Democracy alone
but of te peat common people whom
he at all times defended Applause
When Jackson was president his great
est fight was against the United States
national banks Those connected with
the great banking influence denounced
him and applied to him just as abu
sive epithets a the money owning and
changing class applied to Thomas Jef
ferson before him and have applied to
every one since who did not bow the
knee to Baal and worship the golden
calf Applause At that time all the
moneyed influences of this country were
combined for his overthrow just as
they have today combined to perpetu
ate a government of syndicates by
syndicates and for syndicates Ap
plause The masses are interested in
a government which guarantees equal
rights to all and confers special privi
leges upon none I a glad to note the
intense interest in this campaign I
have noticed it
ALL ALONG THE LINE
Our opponents try to divide the toil
Ing masses and put the laboring men in
opposition t the farmer I warn labor
ers not to desert the farmers who have
been the friends of labor In every strug
gle to better their condition The very
people who today are attempting to
use the laboring men to defeat the far
mer in their just cause are the same
people who have oppressed labor from
the beginning of the world and will
do so again the moment they have the
opportunity Cheers
We have lost a few Democrats by de
sertion but the number is growing less
each day because the Democrats who
have not entirely agreed with us find
that if they leave the Democratic party
in its great struggle with plutocracy
they leave it to make a permanent home
with those whom Democracy ha al
ways fought since i became a party
Applause They realize they cannot
afford to separate themselves from
those with whom their interests and
sympathies lie Cheers
Another large audience was at Lexington
ington where Mr Bryan said
In this campaign where our
campb
enemies are united against us our
friends are also united and with the
help of the Democratic party which
adopted a platform at Chicago which
i pervaded with a
SPIRIT OF AMERICAN INDEPEND
i ENCE
and to those forces there brought to
gether has been added the forces re
presented by the Populist party and
by the fee silver principles of the
I United States against this double

its work in

against naming a gold man on a silver
platform were made the programme

NAMING OF CONSERVATIVE MEN
instead of extreme silverites will i is
believed prevent the placing of a sec

te National Democracy when their
convention is held in Brooklyn on Sep

I this result is reached the threat
ened split of the Democratic party in
this state is averted
The platform and the pledge of sup
I port to Bryan and Sewall is expected
to overcome the objections of extreme I

and the endorsement of the Chicago
platform Is tempered by the naming
of Thacher for governor The middle I

course chosen by Senator Hill alter i
weeks of thought has been laid wD
for the Democrats of the Empire state
and a way is found for them to pre
serve regularity by endorsing the na
tional ticket and save the organization
by voting for candidates for state offi
ces who have always stood for sound
money
There were many changes made in
the state committee and Elliott Dan
forth succeeded James W Hmckley a
chairman No action was taken upon
the resignation of William F Sheehan
as member of the national committee
from this state
The convention was called to order
at 1102 The report of the committee
on credentials was adopted
The committee on permanent organ
ization selected the Hon H H Rock
well of Chemung for permanent chair
and the secretaries
man temporary secetaries
were made permanent
11 Rockwell was cordially greeted
He spoke as follows
11 Chairman and Gentlemen of the
Convention For the high honor of be
ing chosen to preside over the lurttier
deliberations of this most representa
tive convention of the great mass of
Democratic voters of New York I re
turn my heartfelt thanks After the
adjournment of the national Demo
cratic convention at Chicago a dis
tinguished exgovernor of this state
who participated in its proceedings
but who has since fled to the cave of
Adullam at Indianapolis is reported
to have said that The platform was
just suited to the candidates and the
candidates to the platform
And although the remark was made
by way of disparagement yet from
the expressions of sentiment which we
have already had here and from the
instructions which we have received
from our constituents I believe that
the platform and candidates are not
only suited to each other but are suit
ed to the needs and requirements of
the whole American people that they
meet the approval of the majority of
I the voters of the nation For many
years our people have had to struggle
I with adverse conditions rather than
with political theories
Early in 1S93 conditions which had
been slowly but surely ripening under
a false and mischevous financial sys
tem resulted as had been foreseen and
foretold In great business adversity
and a general prostration of our com
merce and industries
BANKS CLOSED THEIR DOORS
and many of our oldest and strongest
business institutions were forced to
te wall Factories were closed and
great armies of the unemployed look
i ed on and saw their wives and children
I suffering for the ecessities of life
Congress was convened in special
session for the purpose of devising
means to relieve the situation During
the debates which ensued the senior
senator from this state said In his
I place in the senate The permanent
remedy for all our financial evils is 3
return t the system of bimetallism
which existed prior to 1S73
Gentlemen we are Democrats and
revolutionists The finan
we are not revolutonist fnan
clal evils from which we then suffered
still exist Both still languish The
army of the unemployed still stands
with folded arms
WISTFULLY WAITING
to see the wheels of industry again In

remedy or relief I the policy of
steadfast adherence to gold mono

of that state to Bryan In Illinois silver sentiment Is so strong

Necessary to a choice 224
first time in the national platform of
any political party shall be made ef
fective then we are without hope And
what is our remedy What was the
system of bimetallism which prevail
ed prior to 1S73
I was the free and unlimited coin
age of both gold and silver on equal
terms and without discrimination at
a ratio of practically 16 to 1 exactly
what Is demanded by the Chicago
platform I I
i A the bimetallic system of the
constitution which reserves to the
federal government the exclusive right
to coin money and forbids the states
from making anything other than gold F
and silver coins for the United States I I
sivr A LEGAL TENDER I I
in the payment of debts I is the sys I
tem founded by that great conserva I
tive statesman and financier Alexander
Hamilton by and with the advice
consent and cooperation of the father
of Democracy Thomas Jefferson and
the other early statesmen In June
last the Republican party assembled
in national convention at St Louis
nominated its candidate for president
and vicepresident and adopted a plat
form in favor of the single standard
and In opposition to the use of silver
a lawful money Silver is not stan
dard money now but it is measured I
u > tjoiu t Ve have the gold standard
alone and the Republican party in its I
pJatform demands ts maintenance in
violation of all the past teachings and
policy and in violation of the cons
tution Again I say we are Demo
I crats and we are not revolutionists
Revolutionists Rather apply the term
to those engaged in the attempt to
I destroy onehalf of the money of the
world thereby as Baron Rothschild
said accomplishing a destruction of
values without any compensation to
I i us who are trying to return to the
monetary system which prevailed in
moneta our country for more than eighty
years a system founded and approved
I by Hamilton Jefferson and
ALL THE EARLY STATESMEN
I
of the republic But it is also charged
I that we are repudiatiomsiii They say
I that we are in favo of a fiftythree
cent dollar to be used in the payment
I of debts Our answer Is that a return
I to the system of bimetallism which ex
i isted prior to 1S73 means thai gold and
silver shall be kept at a parity of
value according to the legal ratio Why
s it that the bullion value remained
i i stable before 1S73 and began to vary
after that date Not because of the
increased relative position of silver
increaed relalt
I There were much wider variations in
the relative production of the metals
rlatve
before 1S73 than there have been since
At one period the production of gold
I was 75 per cent less than of silver at
any other period I was more than
oter perod At time sil
I 200 per cent greater one tme sI
geater ceased At another
I ver coinage almost ceed anOther
vel time coinage almost ceased But
gold almot ceae
1me coinag
all during this almost one hundred
al thi
years there was never a moment when
yer a melted silver dollar of the United
States would not bring more than ala
dollar in gold in the worlds markets
la use of gold and silver is almost
People for
monetary one Peple
entirely a moneta one
I ages have used both for money
I Neither silver nor gold has got in
I trinsic siver Their value is artificial
desire That de
caused by human deire That de
sire is caused by their monetary use
and that alone The value jf gold rests
tat aone
I in the confidence that men have in a
government that will recognize its
monetary use and stamp it I as mote
While mel had that
I SAME CONFIDENCE IN SILVER
it was as valuable when melted as
< t
when coined just a gold has contin
ued to be I was because the govern
ment withdrew that recognition dis
criminated against silver and refused
to coin or recoin i that people lost
faith In silver and Its value as com
pared with gold depreciated
The value of a gold dollar rests alone
on the faith and credit of the govern
ment and under restored bimetallism
the value of a silver dollar would rest
on the same basis But say our op
ponents the production of silver has
been s great owing to new discoveries
and improved methods that its value
has been destroyed and we shall have
a flood of silver if we open our mints
to Its free coinage at the ration of 16
to 1
1The
The ratio of 16 to 1 was established
more than sixty years ago after a
careful estimate which showed that
there was in weight just about six
teen times as much silver as gold in
the world The proportion of value has
not materially changed The director
of the mint has issued a table showing
the amount in ounces of
PRODUCTION OF SILVER WEIGHT
since that time has been a little more
than sixteen times that of gold But
for hundreds of years men have been
accumulating great stocks of gold and
silver which have become so enorm
ous that the production of any one of
five years or ten years can have but a
slight Influence on their relative value
I was not increased production of
silver but it was legislation and that
alone that caused the depreciation of
silver Demonetization by France and
Germany and the United States caused
silver to fall in value The repeal of
the Sherman law and the closure of the
Indian mints caused sO great and sud
den a decline as to clearly show the re
lation of cause and effect I was not
increased production but destruction
of demand for free silver that caused
I its fall in value Now we claim that
what legislation destroyed it can re
store We entered on the road to gold
monometallism by legislation Finding
that we make a mistake let us go back
to our starting point That is the true
meaning of our platform The conse
quences of our mistake have been
most disastrous Ever since 1873 prices
of everything have fallen proportion
I ately day with silver a dollar in gold to
I WILL BUY TWICE AS MANY
common commodities a it would prior
to 1873 I win buy twice a much
land Farms have shrunk nearly one
half But the mortgages have not
shrunk nor the taxes nor the notes
nor other evidences of indebtedness
Silver has not depreciated but has re
mained stable a compared with other
property Gold has appreciated its
purchasing power has doubled Talk
of an honest dollar An appreciated
dollar is just as dishonest as a depre
ciated one Our opponents even appeal
to the laboring man engaged In other
avocations and tell him that the re
monetization of silver is a scheme to
raise values In the interest of the
te
farmer alone That it will result In
raising the cost of living without a cor
I responding increase in wages But let
I us consider who they are who make
i this appeal Every monopolist every

SPOKE WORDS OF WISDOM
which seem singularly applicable t oar

Wages are unjustly reduced when
Waes
an industrious man Is not able I
a by his earnings to live In
comfort educate his children and
save a sufficient amount for the 1
necessities of age The reduction of
wages inevitably consequent upon I
throwing ourhome market open t the
world would deprive the workingmen
of the United States of the power to
do this I would prove a great ca am
y t our country I would produce a
conflict between the poor and the rich
and in the sorrowful degradadcci of
labor would plant the seeds o public
danger
The Republican party has steadily
aimed t maintain just relations be

Applause Labor is indispensable to
the creation and profitable use of cap
ital and capital increases the efficiency
and value of labor Whoever arrays
the one against the other Is an enemy
of both Applause That policy is
wisest and best which harmonizes the
two on the basis of absolute justice
The Republican party has protected
the free labor of America so that its
compensation is larger than Js realized
in any other country Applause and
cries of Hurrah for McKinley But
my countrymen as if the business con

enough to bear we have thrust upon
us at this most critical time in the
business affairs of the nation a prop
osition to debase the currency of the
country and to undermine the public
credit We know what partial free
trade has done for the labor of the
United States I ha diminished Its
employment and earnings We do not I

Special to The Herald
WASHINGTON D C Sept 17
Secretary of the Interior Francis re
turned t Washington today and was
seen by The Herald1 correspondent
concerning the status of the locations
of asphaltum mining claims OB the
Uncompahgre Indian reservations
Secretary Francis had been consulting
with Acting Secretary Sim fa ha
asked
Have you seen the statement made
by Governor Sims on Saturday
I was given to The Herald mid
the correspondent
There is nothing more to add said
Secretary Francis as yet we are
without any official advice the tele
gram that The Herald furnished Secretary
retary Sim being the only Informa
tion this department has received a
t the mining locations posted o this
reservation
Then It is t be regarded as an
Indian reservation asked the corres
pondent
Certainly saId the secretary
And if persons have entered i a
have taken up mining claims they
have done so without authority
This matter is evidently considered
important by Secretary Francis and
his assistant secretaries for the former
only returned to his duties this morn
ing and when seem early this after
noon he had already held a consulta
tion t Governor Sim who had
shown him the Heralds telegram I
is believed that when the TJncom

DEMOCRATIC REFORMERS
I It Their Jurpote to Xomlnmtci an
Independent State Ticket i eT
York
NEW YORK Sep 11The Sum saya
this
tls morning
Not only Is It the purpose of the Democratic
ocratic party reform organization at Its
state convention t b held In Brook
lyn l on next Thursday t nominate a
independent state ticket but the stat
committee X the organization wilfl
recommend the nomination of sod
money Democratic candidates for con
gress and assembly in every district
where the party has an organizations
This statement is made on the author
ity of fcalf a dozen of leaders In the
movement who have generally been
looked 0 a formulating the policies
and plans of the party The state committee
mittee will meet in the assembly rooms
of the reform club o Sunday night t
discuss these matters Some Idea of
how the sound money Democrats
feel l regarding this subject may be
obtained from the following statement t
made by former Conga John1
Dewitt Warner la < nt night
We will certainly nominate cand I
dates of our own for governor he snid
A man who would accept a nomination
for governor from the Buffalo
convention merely to gain a
little cheap notoriety for him
self would be a sorry spectacle
His end of the ticket would b less re
spectable than Bryans for I believe
that is at least sIc I we could not
support Bryan we certainly coii < 3 not
support such a man There might b
some reason for a union of all Democrats
crats if there were a state Issue which
i overshadowed the currency issue That
is not the case and the Democratic reform
form organization will not stultify It
self by supporting a professed gold man
on a free silver platform Of course
the same objection hods good in the
case of men who are willing to run for
congress o the assembly on a free sil
ver platform
