t Iii Other Places
LINCOLN Neb Nov 2A keen
east wind blew fiercely through the
r rdnks of those who gathered to hear
jIr Bryan at Hastings It was there
that the Democratic candidate crossed
the path of John P Irish his old op
ponent in joint debate who is camp
ing on the trail of the Democratic
candidate through Nebraska Colone
Irish Ieached Hastings on his special
train just before Mr Bryan left that
place and the Republican meeting be
gan when the silver meeting was over
People had gathered from far and near
to hear the nominee Ten thousand of
them mostly farmers made up the as
semblage that greeted with wild
cheers his appearance on a temporary
stand The audience was plainly in
sympathy with his views and showed
it6 intensity Qf partisan feeling in
shrill shouts Gold badges were few
and far between White ribbons bear
ing the word Bryan in twoinch let
ters were pinned on the hats and
breasts of men women and children
It was truly an enthusiastic throng
and it heard one of the principal
speeches of the day Mr Bryan spoke
as follows
followsBRYANS
BRYANS SPEECH
Mr Chairman Ladies and Gentle
men I i have been absent from the
state some two months and I have
been reading in Republican papers
that there were certain Republicans in
Nebraska who thought this state was
too far west for a president Laugh
ter r have heard it stated that some
Republicans out here thought a man
dId not know anything about the
money question unless he lived in New
York where he was surrounded by a
London fog all the time Cheers I
heard that there were some Republican
farmers out there who thought prices
were not low enough and they were
going to try to continue the gold stand
ard so that oats would go down to 5
cents a bushel Cheers Well I am
glad to find that these Republicans
did not tell the truth in their dis
patches Laughter and applause I
am very much gratified to find so many
p ople testifying to their faith in bi
metallism by coming out today and
doing what they have been doing all
over this countryusing their voices
until their voices are hoarse Ap
plause Since I left Nebraska I have
been as far east as the Kennebec
river and I want to tell you that no
matter what the papers may say
there is a silver sentiment in Massa
chusetts and Maine that is as intense
as it is in Nebraska Cheers When
I have found a man who lived upon
money and whose money was increas
ing in value under a gold standard I
have generally found an advocate of
the gold standard whether he was in
Nebraska or Massachusetts but when
found a man who worked for his liv
ing I generally found a man who
sympathized with YQU in your strug
gle Cheers
GOLDBUG PRETENSE
My Mends we started out to fight
this campaign on a great issue and
our opponents pretended that they
were perfectly willing to meet us in
the fight But they had not gone very
far until they tried to get away from
the n ey question and get on the
tariff question but when they tried
to talk tariff they found that the peo
ple wanted to put a prohibitory tariff
on foreign financial policies before they
discussed the tariff schedule Laugh
ter When they wanted to talk tariff
they found that the farmers thought if
l the money question could be settled by
international agreement they might set
tle the tariff question in the same way
Cne ° rs They found that they could
nut bring the tariff question into this
campaign until after they had settled
whether or not this country has a right
to ntttjid to ita own business and have
a financial policy suited to its own
peuple Cheers The Republicans have
in their platform endorsed the finan
cial ohey of the present administra
tion and that means mont bonds and
less money while our policy means
more money and less bonds Alter our
opponents had found themselves driven
from every battleheld upon which they
dared to fight then in the closing days
of the campaign tivej have attempted
to resort to fraud and to forgery and
you have found in this community let
ters purporting to have been written by
the chairman of the Populist committee
of this state asking you to save the
state ticket and sacrifice the national
ticket I am authorized to denounce
the inter as a fraud and a forgery by I
Mr Emiston whose name is signed to
n Great applause But the fact that i
they resorted to these things shows the I
desperation of their cause If they had
a cause which appealed to the people of
this country it would not be necessary
for them to resort to fraud out here
I S and to intimidation and force wherever
they Dlause can resort to that anywhere Ap
HOLCOMBS CANDIDACY
Mr Bryan then reverted to state is
I sues amd spoke in advocacy of Governor
Silas A Holcombs candidacy for re
I I election Continuing he said
We are not yeeking votes under
I I false pretenses So far as I am con
I cerned I have tried to present before
I the people from the Missouri river to
t the Atlantic coast the issue of this
k camP gn I have tried to defend bi
metaMism as best I could and show
to the people that it is to the interest
of 9u out of every 1UO to restore the
money of tJhecons titution Great cheer
ingj And now on thw last day of the
campaign yhen I come back among
the people of my own state I want to
be frank with them I want to say to
them if there is a man in Nebraska who
thinks this nation is not big enough to
attend to its own business I do not
i want his vote cheers because I stand
for an American financial policy for
the American people and if I can help
it we will not consult any nation on
eartSi as to what our financial policy
t f shall be Cheers If there is anybody
in this state who believes that the
honor of the nation is safer in the
hands of syndicates than it is in the
E hands of the people themselves I dont
want that persons vote because I can
not carry out his ideas Cheers 1 If
there Is anybody in the state who be
lieves with that eminent divine that the
l trouble tiiii country is overeducation
i < among the farmers sons I do not want
l V his vote because that is not my idea
my friends of the trouble Applause
L Instead of trying to stop education for
I fear people will find out their condi
tion I believe in giving them more
ii education and remedying the condition
itself Aivplause and cheers

GENTLEFIEN I BID YOU A LONG FAREWELL
I
towns and villages between Hastings
and Lincoln with the exception of
Crete where ten minutes were spent
Harvard Saxonville Sutton and Graf
ton turned out goodsized crowds
About 1000 people with a sprinkling
of the orange among them were at
each of the two lastnamed places and
hearty shouts were V given for Mr
I Bryan As the train drew out of Sut
ton a number of small boys ran after
it shouting for McKinley at the top
of their voices
Mr Bryan started to speak from the
rear platform of the Idler at Fair
mont where a crowd of about 2000
awaited him but one of the local re
ception committee persuaded him to
make his address from the more pre
ferrable temporary stand about which
most of the throng had gathered Its
the worst Republican stronghold in
the county you must no said the
committeeman and Mr Bryan went
ALMOST FIERY
A brief speech that was almost fiery
in its delivery was made by the can
didate at Exeter The line of tie
I maikation between his supporters and
his opponents there was well defined
II
To his left were the people wearing
I white badges inscribed Bryan to his
right a strong display of orange color
Mr Bryan talked a minute or two
to those whose ribbons showed their
interest in his cause and then turned
quickly to the people whose breasts
bore evidence of sympathy in another
direction To these he said that in
voting for a gold standard they forgot
the feeling of pride that must come to
every American in reading the pages
of history devoted to the revolutionary
war Emphasizing his words with
vigorous gestures he told them in a
voice almost fierce in passionate feel
ing that unless they wanted their
I children to feel the blush of shame for
the action of their fathers they should
I not vote for a policy that allowed
American finances to be dominated by
foreign influences Mr Bryans re
marks worked his followers up to a
high state of enthusiasm and they
yelled with might and main The 16
young men on white horses and their
I companion on a yellow animal became
so tilled with the spirit of the speech
I that they deserted the I young ladles
who composed the female exemplifica
tion of the salver rallying cry and
dashed after the train shouting like
mad for the Democratic candidate
Young men in coats of old gold and
young women in goldenhued capes
were scattered through the crowd of
1200 people at Friend The 16 to 1
girls were also there and assisted in
the cheering remarks that punctuated Mr
Brvans
Three hundred composed the crowd
at Dorchester which also prvided 17
of its buds for the race tableau
Crete was familiar ground for the
candidate He had held a joint debate
o the money question at the Chautau
qua there with Colonel Irish just be
fore the Chicago convention and on
that occasion and on other visits had
become acquainted wit the people
About 50 small boys wearing broad
ribbons of yellow ran down the track
to meet the train giving shrill pro
nunciation to Major McKinleys name
More of them gathered around I the
train when it haled A number of
men and women wore the Republican
color bUtt they were in the minority
with those who displayed the white
With Mr Bryan playing counterrush
in the flying wedge formed by those
wfco accompanied him a way was
made through the crowd to the ad
jacent baseball grounds where the I
greater number of his supporters were
gathered His tenminute speech was
received with every mark of favor At
5 oclock the candidates special pulled
out for Lincoln 15 minutes late
AT LINCOLN
His home city of Lincoln gave its
final hearty ratification of William J
Bryans candidacy during the brief
half hour he spent there this evening
on his passage through this place to
Omaha from his Nebraska campaign
trip Just before 6 oclock when the
sun was disappearing beyond the
prairie horizon line his special train
reached the Burlington station The
Traveling Mens silver club the
Bryan home guards the Mary Bryan
club composed of Women and men on
horseback and sever other organiza
tions composed the procession that
escorted the candidate and Mrs
Bryan t the Lincoln hotel As the
procession passed along the short dis
tance between station and hotel an
artillery salute was fired from the
potofc square Ninth street run
ning betwMn I he Lincoln and the
square was packed with people and
as Mi and Mrs Bryan stepped on the
hotel balcony a great cheer went up
There was nothing to mar the demon
stration given Lincolns most note
citizen I was hearty and sincere
and the candidate showed his appre
ciation in his speech
Mr Bryan needed no introduction In
the course of his remarks he reiterated
the statement made just after his
nomination that if elected he would
not be a candidate for a second term
I was his principal closing speech of
t e campaign and was delivered in a
clear strong voice that reached every
person i the audience
V V LAST OPPORTUNITY
Ladies and Gentlemen This Is the
laat opportunity that J shall have to
address the people of Lincoln before
beforI
< r I
I
they sit in judgment upon the issues
presented in this campaign Tomorrow
will decide the financial policy of this
II nation for the next four years at least
Three national parties placed in my
hands the standard upon which was
II written Free and Unlimited Coinage
of Silver at 16 to 1 Without Waiting
for the Aid or Consent of Any Other
I Nation Great applause
For three months I have done what
I could to present this question to the
I American people and have traveled
from Nebraska to the Atlantic and
everywhere i have preached the same
doctrine and advocated the same prin
ciples Applause and cheers Every
where I have found those who believe
with us and the zeal of bimetallists
who live along the eastern coast is as
great as the zeal of the bimetallists
of Nebraska Applause and che r
ing They called it a sectional ques
tion when they began but they have
found out that it is not a sectional
question it is a great controversy be
tween the money power and the com
mon people of all this country Ap
plause The Republican party started
out to make the tariff question an Issue
in this campaign but if will
i you wi go
among any group of persons where
politics is discussed you will find what
a failure they have made in getting
the tariff question in the campaign
Applause V
ATTEMPTED FRAUD
The Republican party attempted a
fraud upon the American people in its
financial plank Under the hope of in
ternational bimetallism it started out
to fasten the gold standard upon the
American people I has been aided in
this work by a few former Democrats I
who have been advocating the gold
standard but in order to keep up the
fraud they have pretended to favor
Palmer and Buckner when they have
worked for the Republican ticket Ap
plause and cheers You can see how
the campaign has been conducted The
Republicans have not dared to advo
cate the gold standard as a good I
thing because their platform pledges
the Republican party to get rid of it I
as soon as other nations will help but j I
as they are not able to openly advocate I
the gold standard they help the I
bolting Democrats who can preach
what the Republicans do V upt dare to
preach and they answer Sr same pur
pose Great applause and cheers
I want you to understand the cam
paign which we have had to fight
They have told us that the great in
terests of society were against us Yes
certain great interests have been The
trusts have been against us but the
trusts are no more against me than I
am against the trusts Long and
continued applause and cheers The I
syndicates that have been selling bonds
for the government are against me
but my friends they have reason to
be for if I am elected they will no
longer bleed the American people Ap
plause They say that the corpora
tions are against us Yes many of
them are and they have reason to be
because we believe that the corpora
tion is a creature of law and that the
government which created i is still
greater than the corporation and
should compel it to obey the law
ing Great applause and continued cheer
FELT THE INFLUENCE
We have felt the influence of some
of these corporations We know what
it is to have them say to men who
are with us that if they vote our ticket
they must be discharged and lose their
bread and butter Continued ap
plause
plausey
My friends they know that if we
succeed in this campaign there will be
legislation which will punish the man
who attempts to deprive another of
the right of citizenship Applause
They tell us that the national banks
are against us Yes some of them
are because my friends we believe j
that the greenback as we have i to
day is better than to retire the green i i
backs and issue bonds and give the
banks the benefit of the interest My i i
friends we have found friends advo
cating honest money who were so i
afraid of paying their debts in dollars J
that were not honest that in order to i
avoid all possibility of mistake they j I
have refused to pay their debts at all j i
Laughter and great applause We
stand in this campaign for a reversal
of the financial policy which has cursed
this country for 20 years We are in
favor of restoring the gold and silver i
coinage of the constitution We are in j
favor of having an American financial
policy for the American people Ap i
plause and cheers i
We do not expect the support of I
those who doubt the ability of the
American people to attend to their own j
business Applause and cheer We
dont expect the support of those who j
have core faith in foreign financiers i
than they have in our own people We V
dont expect the support of those who i
would rather trust the destinies of our
people in their own hands Great
cheering But my friends while we
have against us many of these influ I
ences which are considered great and
potent we have on our side those who i
believed in the oldfashioned idea of I
government that it should give equal
rights to all and special privileges l
io none Applause
My friends tomorrow is the day f
upon which you register your will to
morrow is the day when by your bal
bll
o
lot you describe the government under
which you desire to live I you desire
a government of syndicates by syndi
cates and for syndicates you have a
right to i and you can cast your in
fluence with those who are against us
I Applause I you still believe In the
government that Jefferson advocated
the government that Lincoln desired
a government of the people by the
people and for the people you must
join with those who believe in a gov
ernment by the people Applause
So far as I am personally concerned
this election will simply determine
whether I shall remain a private citi
I zen or occupy the most exalted posi
I tion within the power of man to con
fer upon a fellow man I will deter
mine whether I shall remain with you
to uphold as Best I can the hand of
the one who is elected until his policy
can be reversed at the polls whether
I shall depart from y6u to be gone four
years and thenreturn to live with you
the rest of my days Great applause
V
and cheering
I HE MEANT IT
I have stated that if elected I shall
not be absent from you more than four
years When I stated it I meant i
and I want you to believe In my sin
cerity when I say so Applause and
cries of We dojVj believe that the
office is attendedT rt th duties so great
with responsibilities heavy that the
man who occupies ought to have no
personal ambition beyond proving him
self worthy of the confidence of those
who elected him Great cheering and
continued applause I elected I shall
consecrate four years of my life to the
service of my country feeling that
when that is done all ha been done in
the way of honor that can be done and
then I shall rejoice again to be a priv
ate citizen in this nation where to be j
a citizen is greaterthan to be a king
Great applause
My friends I remember that when
a little less than wo years ago I re
turned to this city after completing
four years in congress you met me and
extended to me I a welcome which
touched my heart and I want to say to
you that nothii g you can do in the
future can withdraw from me what I
you have done in the past You may
turn against me If you like but my I
friends you can never undo what you
have already done nor can you take
from me the feeling of gratitude which I
I entertain towards those whose kind
ness and confidence first gave me an
opportunity to become interested in
public questions the kindness and the
confidence of those who enabled me to
begin the great fight in which I am
now engaged Applause
A RIGHTEOUS CAUSE
My friends I want you to believe
me when I say that I have enjoyed the
opportunity of defending bimetallism
because I believe it is a righteous
cause and I want you to believe that
I would rather stay among you as a
private citizen and be permitted still
to raise my voice against what I con
ceive to be a crime against the human
I race than to enjoy all the honors in
I Christendom i I had to join in the con
I spiracy Great applause and cheer
I ing And now let he ask you who
are interested In the result of this cam
paign to lose no effort to have the vote
recorded tomorrow exactly as the j eo
pIe desire to vote I am seeking no involuntary
voluntary support I have said and I
repeat that I do not want a Vote un
less there is behind the vote the heart
I of the person who casts the vote
I Great applause The work which lies
before a president who goes into office
I with the desire to reform a financial
I policy and to drive the trusts and syn
I dicates from this land will be hard
I enough if he is supported by the people
V his work would be impossible if he
were not supported by them Great
I cheering and applause I want you I
if you are in earnest to give us a
I senate and a congress as well as an I
electoral vote Cries of We will and
applause I you are in earnest I
i want your earnestness to be manifted I
I in a clear sweep and then my friends
i i by the suffrage of my countrymen I
am made their chief executive I will
promise you that no power in this
country or in any foreign land will pre
vent the restoration of the money of
the constitution among our people
Tremendous cheering and great ap I

straight Republican ticket In its stead
We have captured a man here with 100
tickets and 0 in cash He has weak
ened and given the whole plan away r
This plan wU probably b attempted
throughout your state I Is absolutely
necessary that honest men organize vigi
lance committees In all our counties and
townships if possible for the purpose c
preventing the consummation of this villainy
lainy Please take immediate and vigor
ous steps to call the attention of the
public to this plan I seems that the
Republicans will hesitate at no villainy

ranged an election day surprise for their
opponents The law gives to each can
