Continuing, President Kiuger Is re?
ported to have added:
"The siliens of the Transvaal have
the same commercial rights as the
burghers, and have always enjoyed
them wltaout interference. I wanted
to let thlm have the same political
rights, but they would not avail them?
selves of this. Roughly, Iiicrc arc more

more than seven years and have regis?

Chicago, 111., Sept- 1")?The exciting
joint debate looked for to-night be?
tween "William J. Bryan and BourUc
Cockran on trusts before the Civic
Federation Convention did not take
place. Central Music Hall was packed
with an eager audience, but the people
present had to content themselves with?
out the oratory of the famous Nebras?
ka.!), who, however, occupied a seat on
Mr. Bryan reached Central Music
Hull early in the evening. He went
direct to a room upstairs, where he was
greeted by Chairman Franklin Head.
Congressman Galnes, Ralph M. Easley
and other members of the program

the committee by declining to speak at
the night session with W. Bourke Cock
ran, in accordance with the program
previously arranged. Mr. Bryan ex?
plained that he did not wish to let the
impression go out that he was to enter
into a debate with Mr. Cockran. For
that reason he said he would not speak
with Mr. Cockran at the same session.
Mr. Cockran wns sent for und he and
Mr. Bryan discussed the situation. The
committee withdrew to allow the two
orators to nettle the dispute among
A PROPOSITION DECLINED.
Mr. Cockran wanted to talk at the
same session with the noted Nebraskan
nnd offered to' flip a coin to determine
who should have the privilege of de?
livering the closing address.
Mr. Bryan would not accept this
proposition. Mr. Cochran then agreed
lo appear at any time the committee
desired. The program was then chang?
ed to meet Mr. Bryan's wishes. Mr.
Bryan said he was anxlou3 to addresi
the conference and repeated lhat his
r.nly reason for changing the program
was lo avoid any Indication of a public
debate with Mr. Cochran. Mr. Bryan
will speak at io-morrow's session.
Though disappointed In failing lo s?t
such a spectacle as Bryan and Coch?
ran pitted against each other the au?
dience nevertheless enjoyed a rare
treat, as Mr. Cochran was at his best
and his speech was punctuated with
frequent and prolonged applause. When
Mr. Bryan made his appearance nt ih'^
entrance It was the signal for tumultu?
ous cheering which lasted until the
Nebraskan bad taken bis seat on the
speaker's stand. Mr. Foulkc, of In?
diana, who was In the middle of au ad?
dress when tBo outburst occurred, put
the audience In good humor by remark?
ing, "I guess you came here to-night to
hear somebody else speak."
-At the tlose tif lil.-t spe'een the .Sew'
Yorker won the hearts of his listeners
by paying Mr. Bryan a well chosen
compliment, which the Democratic
leader blushlngly acknowledged.
Strong resolutions were drafted to?
day for presentation at future sessions
of the conference. They are as follows:
"Whereas, Trusts and Industrial
combinations have been formed for the
purpose of gratifying the greed of their
promoters at the expense of Ihe gen?
eral public, they destroy competition,
nullify the operation of the economic
law? of supply and demand, deprive the
young men of the country of oppor?
tunity lo advance; take away all In?
centive to invention nnd improvement
and hold out inducements to deteriora?
tion and base Imitation. Inspired by
no other or higher motive than the in?
satiable greed of their promoters, they
hold the small merchant, the wage
earner and consumer subject to their
arbitrary dictates. They are the evil of
the hour, and their suppression is of
momentous Importance to the American
people. Therefore be it
Resolved first, That we are unalter?
ably opposed to all trusts and monopo?
lies as In derogation of . the common
Second, that we demand of the sev?
eral States and cities that they take
such action" as will lead to the public
ownership of all public utilities, and
we demand of the Federal and State
governments such legislation sis will ef?
fectually control the railways and pre?
vent extortion and discrimination.
Third, that we demand of Congress
nnd the Legislatures of the several
States that they abolish all special
privileges and take whatever action Is
lenuired to destroy monopoly.
Fourth, that in our judgment no can?
didate for public olllce Is entitled to the
suffrages of his fellow citizens who does
rot earnestly declare his hcJstlllty to all
combinations In restraint of trade or
the further granting of any special
privileges and openly avow his purpose
to favor such legislation as will sup?
Fifth, that it Is the duty of the peo?
ple by organized effort to secure the
nominations by the political parties of
the opponents of trusts nnd who have
the integrity, courage and ability to de
I fend the rights of the people against
impending Industrial slavery.
Sixth, that the growth of private in?
dustrial corporations under the general
laws of the several States and the ad
I vantages given to persons by* such
! laws, threaten the extinction of all nat
utal persons, as competitors with them
in every line of business.
We. therefore, recommend that the
several States take Immediate action
to limit the purposes for which such
corporations may be formed and dis?
courage their further formation by the
adoption of such measures as their
wisdom may advise."

WHAT A POLITICIAN AND A
i PREACHER THINK.
(By Telegrnph to Vlrginlan-Pilot.)
London, Sept. 15.?The papers are
still flooded with Dreyfus letters, the
most remarkable to-day being from Mr.
Michael Dvivltt. the Irish Nationalist
member ot Parliament, and the Rev.
Hugh Price Hughes, editor of the
Methodist Times. Mr. Davltt says Eng?
lish sympathy for the prisoner Is en?
tirely due to tho fact that Dreyfus Is
a rich Jew Instead of a poor one and to
tthe desire to Injure ft civil nation.
MRS. MAYBRICK'S CASE. ?
"No absolutely Innocent man." con?
tinues Mr. Davltt. "was ever convicted
twice In any civilized country by a jury
of his peers. No civilized country could
produce a conspiracy of men educated,
cultured and responsible like the
French military chiefs to stoop to the
baseness and Infamy of plotting to ruin
an Inslgnlllcant petty ofllcer. The sup?
position Is too monstrous to be enter?
tained by any mind unwarped by anti
French feeling. "What have you to say
about Florence Maybrlck? Your Lord
Chief Justice Is said to believe her in?
nocent. So do many eminent English?
men nnd tens of thousands of Ameri?
