I
The Lyceum theatre was filled to
overflowing with attentive listeners
yesterday afternoon the occasion being
an address to the women voters of the
city by Hon W H Dickson Judge
Powers and Hon J L Rawlins
It was an enthusiastic meeting too I
and every utterance of the distin
guished gentlemen was warmly ap
plauded Judge Powers is right when
he says if the question which is now
agitating the people of the United
States could be left to the women to
settle the nations future would be as
sured
Although it has been known for some
time that Mr Lickson was going to
cast his vote for L1 e entire Democratic
ticket this is the first time he has ap
peared upon the stump and publicly
announced it But that announcement
was such that the man or woman who
reads and is willing to accept the
truth cannot fail of conviction It was
a masterly effort It was logical and
clear There is nothing ambiguous in
the declarations the distinguished at
torney made All are apt and to the
point
The address was remarkable for the
freedom from perplexing situations
Every statement made was as simple

and clear as the light of a summer j I
morning No one who heard could go I
avay with the excuse that he or she I
could not understand Could that i
speech have been delivered in every I j
town and hamlet in the Union Mc
Kinley would not carry a single state I
today
I
The Herald gives this speech to its
readers this morning in full with not a I
word eliminated nor an expression I
marred Those who read will be im I
pressed by the force of the arguments I
used It will have an influence for
good even at this late hour I
Judge Powers speech vas alco a I
splendid effort but as he has been
heard many times during this cam
paign his remarks on this occasion are j
abbreviated But every sentence he
uttered was applauded and appreciated
Judge Powers was at his best and the
ladies cheered him to the echo
Hen J L Rawlins was not down on
the bills for a speech having just re
turned from the east yesterday morn j
ing bat when he was espied in the I
audience a demand that he make a few
remarks was shouted from every por
tion of the house Mr Rawlins speech
was not as lengthy as either of those
of the distinguished gentlemen who
preceded him but it was none the less
forcible and bides it contained the
cheering announcement that today the
voters of the land are going to elect
William J Bryan the standard bearer
of the new Democracy the Democracy
of Jefferson and Jackson the people
Hon John W Burton chairman of
the state executive committee called
the meeting to order and introduced
as chairman that eloquent speaker
whose voice will be heard in the halls
of the next legislature Mrs Eurithe K
La Barlhe
W H DICKSON
Mrs La Barthe did not attempt any
great effort preferring as she ex i
pressed it to listen to the words which j
should be spoken by the speakers whom
she would present but she bade the
women be of good cheer that all was I
well and that the sun of tonight would I
set on a victory won by the people of
the United States She then intro
duced Hon W H Dickson
Ladies and Gentlemen We all realize
that the time for the discussion of the
important qt < stions or the importsnt
question I should sayinvolved in this
campaign is past the hour for the dis
charge of your patriotic duty is at hand
Realizing that it is not my purpose to
F make or attempt to make a set speech
there are a lleSI questions however
> which I would desire to submit to the
j calm consideration of every man and
woman in this city whose judgment is
yet wavering who bas not yet fully
made up his or her mind as to how his
or her ballot shall be cast I wish every
one to ponder well between this hour
and the moment when your ballot shall
be deposited in the ballot box tomorrow
ik tit T 41
whether it is i your desire to do all that
in you lies to uphold the hand of that
matchless leader that fearless honest
friend of the people William Jennings
Bryan applause or whether you will
by your ballot give aid and comfort to
the mouthpiece and servant of the syn
I dicates in this country Mr William Mc
Kinley
There is another question I would like
you to consider and see if you can find
I the true answer to it and that is this
Why is it that in this country with its
boundless and yet undeveloped resources
with its teeming millions of energetic
I industrious enterprising people the
country is not prosperous that it has
been brought to the brink of bankruptcy
and despair Surely there must be some
I thing wrong in the governmental policy
of such a government as this which in
15 or 20 years has carrIed it from the
position of unexampled prosperity to the
brink of bankruptcy and confines of de
spair as it is today We have tried the
protective tariff policy of the Republican
party we have experimented with the I
theory of tariff for revenue which has
been advocated by the Democratic party

I in recent years and from week to week
from monrh to month from year to year
I for the past 15 or 20 years our condi
tion has been growing worse and more
hard to endure I think the explana
I tion of it is that we have been trying
through these years to do business upon
a gold basis and that there is not suffi
cient gold in the country with which
to do it and so we see in a time of
profound peace within three years last
past the Democratic administration in
order to maintain the gold standard and
to protect the treasury reserve compelled
to go into the markets of the world and
to borrow over a quarter of a billion
of dollars to maintain the gold standard
That means principal and interest there
on that there has been put upon the
shoulders of the people of this nation an
additional indebtedness of over 500OCO
000 But it may be said by some sup
porter of Mr McKinley that We will
right all that if you will restore the
Republican party to power Does any
body believe that Does anybody be
lieve that tinkering with the tariff is
ging to lift the people of this country
out of the slough of despond into which
they have fallen They tell us Mr Mc
Kinley and those wtio advocate his elec
tion tbatIn 1890 1891 and 1892 this coun
try was enjoying a period of unexampled
prosperity They must think that the
people of this country have short mem
ories that the r memories will not carry
them back four or five years and cal
back to their minds what the conditIon
I of this country was in 1S30 1S91 and 1S92
Were we prosperous then in 1892 Is it
true that this country then was enjoying
great prosperity If so why was it that
the people in 1M2 made such a mistake as
to hurl Mr Harrisons admnlstration
from power and to reinstate in the seat
of Government Mr Cleveland arid the
democratic party When times are hard
a worthy government may be defeated
but when times are prosperous no gov
ernment that has been worthy of the
confidence of the people has ever been
hurled from power Applause Mr
Harrisons administration went down in
defeat before the people of this country
in 1892 because the people were suffering
then as they are nownot so much but
they were sufferingfrom year to year
their condition was getting less toler
able than it was the year before Let
us see if that be true Let us inquire
whether or no if Mr McKinley is elected
president of the United States he will
not be forced to follow in the very foot
steps in whch Mr Cleveland has been
walking ever since the oath of office was
administered to him on the 4th of March
1833When
When Mr Harrison went into power in
1S9S you wll remember that one of te
evils that was talked about then was the
enormous surplus in the treasury If my
memory serves there was at hat time in
the treasury of somewhere in the n l h
bo h > od of a Quarter of a billion dollars
Mr Harrison went into power and before
tho close of his administration that sur
plus was entirely gone and then MrHar
rsons administration was brought face
to face with the necessity of making an
issue of bonds in order to reolenish the
treasury of the United States So far
had it gone that his then secretary of
the treasury Mr Foster had already had
the plates prepared upon which the bonds
were to be issued It was inevitable The
treasury reserve was imperilled They be I
lieved that the hundred million of dollars
therein had to be kept good The rev
erses were not adequate and they were
face to face as I said before with the ne
cesiy then of issuing bonds Why was
it not done in the closing months of Har
r < sons administration Had he been suc
cessful in 1S92 doubtless the bonds would
havo been issued under his administra
tion before the coming of the following
March But lie suffered defeat The
Deope spoko under the distrust that was
resting upon him and withdrew him and
his administration from power Then
they said it was not politics and We will
tide over the emergency now during these
I rew months without issuing the bonds
I and we will leave to the incoming admin
I istration of Mr Cleveland to take the odi
I um of issuing bonds in a time of peace
to meet the current expenses of the gay
I eminent That is all that kept us from
a bond issue under the Republican admin
istration This great surplus had been
wiucd out There was no way on earth i
of meeting the expenses of the govern
ment and keeping good the treasury re
I serve except by selling bonds and bor
rowin = money
i A tvf years ago in 1890 and 1891 Mr
I McKinley as we all know was condemn
I i i bitterly the hnancal policy of Mr
Cleveland and his attitude towards the
slver cause Within a week past if we
may believe the reports from those pa
pers which are in sympathy with ilr Mc
Kinley we find him heartily endorsing
Mr Clevelands administration of the fin
ances of this country Why does he do it I
Because he realizes as does every
thoughtful man that If he is elected pres
ident of the United States before the 1st
of July comes he will be forced to do
just what Mr Cleveland ddto Issue
bonds and borrow money and keep the
country on a gold basis
How can it be avoided I am not going
to weary you with figures but there are
a few which I wish to submit to your con
sideration and asIc when you have con
sidered them If the Republican party to
day points out any way by which that
party if placed in power again the fur
ther sale of bonds can be avaoided We
take the McKinley bill while it was In
force in 1891 and 1S92 we take from that
tim on the operation and effect of the
WilsonGorman bill socalled and we find
that the ualance of trade In favor of this
country In 1S90 1891 1592 1S93 1894 and ISSo
was In round numbers seventy millions of
dollars and that annually That was the
biiarce of trade in our favor Now it
Is conceded that In order
to meet our or
eltni chargesoutside of the matters of
trade that is to meet the interest on the
national state and municipal bonds held

I j A Spedial From Hon Frank B Stephens the
t
Heralds Special Commissioner Who Traveled
With the Silver Champion Yesterday
On Train North Platte Neb Nov 2
ro the Editor of The Herald
I breakfasted on the Idler this morning with Mr and Mrs Bryan and
was with them from Lincoln to Grand Island Mr Bryan is in splendid
physical condition His voice is clear as a bell and was heard to the out
skirts of the crowds that greeted him at every point He is perfectly con
fident of election not the confidence of egotism but confidence born of the
feeling that he represents a great moral principle which must prevail where
the people have a chance to express their will by thair votes I asked him
if he feared that voters would be kept from the polls by the use of money
He replied No I dont believe that the great masses of the people can
be corrupted and beyond this thQse who are awake on the money question
know that the result of this election means more to them than any sum
they will be offered to remain away from the polls
Mr Bryan spoke with great pow r at each place wherever he stopped
The hired men of the gold standard were going about with handfuls of
yellow ribbons pinning them to t everyone who would allow it I do not
know what was the color of the em blem worn by those who in 1T76 ad
vocated British domination but I s e that those who how think foreign
countries should dictate our financial policy wore yellow f would suggest 1
that the farmers wear badges made of straw as emblematical of the fact
that the gold standard threshing m chine gives the wheat to Wall street
and the straw to the farmer and the audience went wild
Mr Bryan inquired with a good deal of interest about Utah and her 1
vote I assured him that McKinley votes would be scattering indeed I
I
trust he will not be disappointed

Comity Yesterday Says He
Knows When He Has Hail
Enough of Democracy
OGDEN Nov 2This afternoon
word was received from reliable par
ties at Pleasant View that Senator
Frank Cannon in his speech there had
advised the voters to put an X up by
the eagle and vote it straight I they
did so he said they would vote for
none but good silver men
This advice given by the senator
seems to have been somewhat in line
with that given by him in two speeches
made in this city tonight
He said that although he personally
expected to carry out the pledge he had
made and vote for Bryan he thought
he knew when he had had enough of
Democracy

OGDEN Utah Nov 2Hon H P
Henderson and C C Richards spoke to
I an opera house full of people tonight in
the final great meeting of the cam
paign
This has not been a campaign of
rampant enthusiasm and there was
none at the meeting last night How
I ever the audience was intensely inter
ested and followed both speakers close
ly showing appreciation by frequent
busts of sincere applause Mr Poulter
introduced Joseph S Peery as chair
man He was greeted with great ap
plause and mace a brief speech ring
ing with arguments for free silver
He alluded to the great importance of
the contest in this campaign wherein
the two parties are squarely opposed
I on the vital issue He said a new
Marius has arisen and his name is
William J Bryan Prolonged applause
and cheering As the first speaker
of the evening he introduced
HOK H P HENDERSON
who said in part Utah comes to the
contest at a critical period in the coun
try s history at a time when the
weightiest issues and mightiest inter
ests are at stake In I860 the liberties
of black slaves was the question In
1S9G the liberties of millions of black
and white slaves are involved There
I are but two sides to the question of this
campaign however industriously cer
J 1 tain parties may try to find other
sides All over this land the people
i i are discussing this one great issue It
4 is the question between the interests
i of money and the interests of human
rights I is a question of whether the
I people must bear all the burdens or
whether the trusts and other monop
olies shall bear their lair proportion
In 1871 the government fooR up all
the old bonds and replaced them by
I bonds payable in coin This doubled
the value of the bonds Next the bond
II holders succeeded in having the value
of the bonds doubled again by having
one of the metals demonetized Neither
the nation nor its statesmen realized
what had been done but soon they be
gan to realize the importance of the
t question Time and again the parties
dodged the issue knowing that the
support of silver would lose to them
the mighty vote of the eastern money
forces
I Soon after the division of the people
of Utah on party lines her citizens be
I gan to study the question What party
I I Is favorable to silver The leaders
of each party said their particalur
i party was the one to look to Thus it
went till the campaign of 1896 Lead
I j ers of both parties saw that no tempor
I ising with the question would do The
issue must be met squarely So in the
I Republican convention 95 per cent of
its delegates were found to be in favor
of the gold standard A few of its
members left but not enough of them
to be missed When the Democrats
I met in convention at Chicago they
found mighty forces arrayed against
I themthe president and his entire cab
I inet with the mighty federal power
the press and the money power of Eu
I rope but the Democratic party came
out as preeminently the party of free
silver
I all the gold money of all the civi
lized world were brought together there
I is only 4000000000 The indebtedness of
the united states is 30000000000 The
American people therefore must earn
all the money of the world seven and
onehalf times before the chains of
financial slavery will be stricken from
1 them Nearly all the nations of the
i earth owe money as does the United
I States and they are all striving for
the 4000000000 of gold to satisfy their
creditors Our opponents say much
about the dumping of silver upon the
Umved States Suppose a Canadian
should cross from Windsor to Detroit
Detot
with a sack of 10000 worth of silver I
He gets I coined into American dol
lars He will at once dump j some
where He will perhaps buy a farm
that had a mortgage for half that sum
of an American who pays the mort
gage and has 5000 left We have I
gained d citizen and one American has
regained financial freedom America
needs to be flooded that way In 1873
the silver dollar was worth more by 4
I mills o a bullion basis than the gold
dollar Since that time the gold dollar
has been going steadily up But before
d Utah audience i can be taken for
granted that free coinage will be for
the benefit of the common people But
how get it I Bryan is elected the
fight is not won He must have
mus have legis
legs
lative support Some of
latve our Republic
an friends say the way to get free
silver Is by the aid of their party Do
they base their hope on the dishonor I
of their party O their candidate I I
so they will be disappointed McKinley I
is an honest man He and his party
have declared unequivocally for the
gold standard and they mean to keep
their pledge To whom then can we
appeal The Bryan Republicans say
they will vote for the head of the ticket
but their support will end there Now
a congressman is to be elected Mr
Foster the Populist candidate is ho
est fearless and sincere But he stands i
no show Mr Holbrook is a honest j I
and sincere man but if elected he
must represent his constituents I he I
is elected he must look to the gold I
Republicans and the Bryan Republicans i
for advibe He will have a many
strings on him as there are goldfeugs
in Utah Judge King will have but
one set of supporters and he canrep
resent them consistently The same
line of reasoning apples to the candi
dates for the state legislature When J
McKinley was nominated he walked
into his magnificent residence and said
the people could come to him Han
went out and the crowds began to
come to him in cattle cars Every h uri j
> T
i
a crowd comes to McKinley and bow
their souls in adoration before the
golden calf
The Democratic candidate who has
taken up the cause of the common
people went out among them The
men who made the Republican party
great in the past are not with it now
They have either died out of its service
of have left i A man is not essen
tially a Democrat because he puts a
cross up by the rooster and lets It go
at that I may be possible that this
contest is but the preparation for a
mightier contest I you want to vote
consistently for this great principle
you will vote the Democratic ticket
straight Prolonged applause
Mr Peery next Introduced
C C RICHARDS
who was heartily cheered Mr Rich
ards said there were other issues in
this campaign besides the silver issue
Silver is but the representative of the
great principle the principle of Amer
ican liberty I it is proper to request
European nations for permission to
adopt a financial system it is just as
consistent to ask Salisbury to come
over and settle boundary disputes for
us
ULAs
As for me and mine I would rather
go backward to the ox team and pony
express than to have the express cars
and the bondage of British gold
The farmer has now to take four
times the amount of his products to
pay for 1 of gold that he did in 1S73
We are under bondage and will be un
til there is more money to do business
with We can live longer without gold

conflicting interests and many dom
inating minds there I challenge any
one to prove that there was any differ
ence of opinion in the Democratic
party on that subject I you vote a
Republican ticket with Bryan and
Sewall you help to build up a silver
party and gold party There is no
candidate on our ticket but stands
squarely for free silver I you want
to lend unqualified support to the free
silver cause vote not alone for Bryan

College Boys Who Go About Tooting
For McKinley anti Hobart
BOSTON Nov 2The college boys
tooted the last horn in the political cam

light procession In honor of McKinley and
Hobart Though in point of numbers In

I night the finale was far more exciting
J 1 There were about SOT Harvard men In line
I I There had been a rumor that the Har
I vard and Institute of Technology men
were to have a little sport with each other
during the parade but this was prevented
by the nonappearnce of the Technology
boys After the line had broken up a I
Harvard student pulled a cap from one of
t Tufts students heads and put it in j
his Docket This the Tufts man resented
and in a second the Harvard man struck
the former A scrimmage ensued in i J
which many became involved but the
Harvard men had the advantage owine I
to their greater numbers The monted
police on the opposite side of the square I I
made a dash for the belligerents driving I
the crowd pell mell upon the sidewalks
upn
and into doorways and by a vigorous use
of their clubs succeeded in qetlnff the
disorder
Meantime another row had started far
ther down the square near Pleasant
street and there the foot policemen made
a rush for the scene of the trouble using
their sticks right and left The encoun

lice came off masters of the situation No I

arrests were made and as far as known I
no one was seriously hurt although many

Bryans personal campaign came to an
end in Omaha tonight
Never before in the history of the
city had party feeling run so high on
the eve of a national election and
ominous rumors that pointed to per
sonal conflicts between supporters of
the great national tickets caused an
uneasy feeling throughout the commu
nity
Fortunately no clash occurred An
occure
agreement had been reached by the
Republican and Democratic local man
agers by which the McKinley demon
stration would not come in contact with
I the crowds that gathered to hear Mr
Bryan This was carried out and the
I imposing Republican parade did not 2
appear on Farnam street the princi
I pal thoroughfare until Mr Bryan had
left it and begun his round of speechmaking
making
Shortly before S oclock Mr Bryan
reached Omaha after a hard days
work He had visited four of the six
congressional districts in Nebraska and
made 18 speeches including one in his
home town
I A FRENZIED CROWD
I An almost frenzied crowd of enthu
I siasts greeted him here and followed
1 his carriage for a mile through the
I streets to Boyds theatre where he
I spoke first Unlike the others no Or
ganized parade had been arranged by
I the Democratic marchers and the
band the Jacksonian club the Veter
I I ans Bryan club composed of old sol
diers and a number of other support
ers who fell into line and indiscrim >
I inately composed his escort
The Republican demonstration was
I more pretentious Scores of organiza
tions nearly all bearing torches
formed a procession that took an hour
in passing a given point Every brass
I band in Omaha and vicinity had been
secured for the parade Despite the
agreement between the opposing po
litical parties the Democratic man
agers claimed to be fearful of trouble
in view of statements that Republican
organizations intended to gather about
the places where Mr Bryan was sched
uled to speak and attempt to howl
I i 1 him down That was the given reason
for not announcing the time Mr Bryan
would keep each engagement
CHEERED BY PATRIOTS
Continuous cheering from the patri
ots following the carriage in which the
j candidate and Mrs Bryan were seated
i j and from the thousands along the side
walk marked Mr Bryan progress
from the station up Farnam street to
Boyds theatre The enthusiasm was
I rampant Not an inch of space was
available to the theatre when he ar
rived and he received an ovation there
and from a tremendous throng out
side
Another demonstration occurred in
side and outside Washington hal and
then the candidate proceeded in his
carriage to Germania hal where he
talked to an audience of natives of
the Fatherland about what Prince Bis
I marck had to say about bimetallism
Mets hal In the Bohemian district
Morans hal where the meeting was
under the direction of the Swedish Bi
metallic League and Creighton hail
followed in turn Each was crowded
to the doors and Mr Bryan was re
ceived with the customary wild excess
of partisan emotion
Governor Holcomb spoke at Morans
in support of the Democratic ticket
just before Mr Bryan appeared
Creighton theatre in the same build
ing with the hall of that name was
the scene of the last speech delivered
by Candidate Bryan in his remarkable
campaign
HIS LAST WORDS
These were Mr Bryans concluding
words his last message to the free
coinage forces
Do you wonder that we have
been able to conduct this campaign
paign My friends we nave been
able to conduct it by the unselfish
devotion of that multitude of men
Democrats Populists Republic
ans who see what the gold
standard means and seeing it
have been willing to fight i in
order to save their children and
their childrens children from
the curse of gold They tell u
that we must bow down and wor
Ship the golden calf 1 say my
friends that the American people
will not bow doW They will
vote to restore the gold and sil
