and was the recipient of a contin

when he had finished a notable eig

not attempting to forecast the polie
of his party.
Mr. Bryan declared that the trus
were the great issue of the day. I
called for the enforcement of* ti
crimintal clanse of the Sherman ani
t,rust law and the placing of tru
controlled articles on the free list.
He went into the question of ti
Government ownership of the ra:
roads at great length and declari
that what lhe had seen in other con
tries had served to strengthen his co
viction on the subject. HIe sawi
danger in centralization, however, ax
for this reason advocated the Fedor
ownership of the truuk lines, and tI
State ownership of the local lines.
The speaker gave the Preside
some praise for what he termed hx
adoption of Democratic ideas.
Mr. Bryan also addressed an ove
flowinwvk meeting out the Garden. I
