(By Telegrnph to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.)
Chicago, Sept. 1C?The conference on
the Uses and Abuses of Trusts closed
Its session to-day In a blaze of oratory,
In which Colonel W. J. Bryan and W.
Bourke Cockran were the central
figures. Mr. Cockran followed the
noted Nebraskun, but disclaimed any
Intention or debating the conclusions of
his Immediate predecessor, and declar?
ing his complete concurrence In much
that Mr. Bryan had said.
SPEECH OF THE DAY.
The Westerner had delivered the
speech of the day during the forenoon,
amid frequent Interruptions of tumult?
Mr. Foulltc, of Indiana, commenting
on the speech, made assertions which
Mr. Bryan desired further to discuss.
He was requested to take the stage, and
compiled for the second time, facing a
wildly enthusiastic house.
COCKRAN WANTS INFORMATION.
At the conclusion Mr. Cockran rose
"Just a few words." The spectators
wanted more and refused to subside un?
' ,tll he had taken the platform. He
? agreed with Mr. Bryan, he suid, but
ho wanted Information.
...,?Tho. crowd....wJilch greeiad Colonel
Bryan, when the doors of the Muslo
^Hull^HVerethtwh''dpen amounted al
"* most'to a mob, so eager were they to
enter. The place was Jammed from pit
to gallery with admirers of 'the Ne
braskan. When he had concluded hie
speech eighty per cent, of the audience
departed, leaving a few straggling spec?
tators to listen to the remaining speak?
Tho committee on resolutions pro?
ceeded with Its business in another part
of the "building- Ex-Governor Luce, of
Michigan, was chairman and he rigid?
ly adhered to the resolutions passed
yesterday in which It was resolved thn;
no resolutions giving the sentiment of
the conference on the trust problem
should be presented that the remedies
proposed by Colonel Bryan In the lat
tor's speech during the morning session
could result In the attainment of the
object sought for.
BRYAN REPLIES TO FOULKE.
Colonel Bryan, who was sitting in
tho back part of the hall, arose, and
amid cheering, started to reply- Before
he had uttered a dozen words, however,
cries of ^'take the platform" rame from
all narts of the hall, nnd with a smile
he did so. . ?????
"I would not occupy the time again,
,but for the fact that the gentleman
from Indiana (Mr. Foulke) has referred
to a plan which I suggested, and I nm
afraid that ho does not fully under?
"My plan was this:
"First, that the Stale should have
the right to create whatever private
corporations tho people of the State
"Second, that the State has, or should
have, the right to impose such limita?
tions upon an outside corporation as
the people of tho State may think nec?
essary for their own protection. That
protects the rights of the people of tho
State to say, first, what they shall or?
ganize In their State as a corporation,
and. second, what they shall permit as
a corporation to come from other States
to do business In their State- '
"Third, that the Federal government
lias, or should have, the right to im?
pose such restrictions as Congress may
think necessary upon any. corporation
which does business outside of the State
In which It is organized. In other
words, I would preserve to the people
of the State all the rights they now
have, and at the same time have Con?
gress exercise a concurrent remedy to
supplement the Stale remedy. I would
not lake away from the people of the
Stale any right now existing, but I
would have the Federal government
and the State government exercise the
powers that may be necessary to anni?
hilate the monopoly. I do not agree with
the gentleman that you cannot annihi?
late a monopoly. (Applause.) I be?
lieve It is possible to do so.
PROPOSED REMEDY CONSTITU?
"I have no doubt that any remedy
that is proposed will be assaulted. If
those who believe that the trust must
remain, and those believe that the trust
means good, will accept the best rem?
edy they can find, try It and then ac?
cept a better one if a better one Is pro?
posed, and keep on trying until the
people are protected. (Applause.)
"Now, I nm not sure the remedy I
propose Is unconstitutional. I am not
sure that the constitution would pro?
hibit such an act of Congress as I sug?
gest. Suppose Congress should say that
whenever a corporation wanted to do
business outside of the State it must
apply to and receive from somebody
created by Congress for the purpose, a
license to do business. Suppose the
law should provide throe commissions
upon which the license should be is*
"First, that the evidence Bhall show
?.-a'-' ? V ..?> ??."?'.'? . - - .i-'/i
that there Is no water in the stock.
"Second, that the evidence should
show that this corporation has not In
the past and is not attempting now to
monopolize any branch of industry or
a branch of any article of merchan?
i "Third, providing for that publicity
which everybody has spoken of, and
about which everybody agrees. Sup?
pose that is done? Who is here to say
that such a law would be unconstitu?
AMEND THE CONSTITUTION,
"nut, suppose the law Is passed and
\ Is held unconstitutional, then we can
nimcud the constitution. The gentle?
men suggests that it is a dlflieult
thing to get two-thirds of both houses
to favor amendment and three-fourths
of tho States That Is true, it is a dlf
j flcult thing, but If the people want tu
destroy the trusts, you can get two
thirds of both houses and three-fourths
1 of the States, but what Is the alterna?
tive? Sit down nnd do nothing? Al?
low them to trample upon you and ride
rough shod over you nnd then thank
God that you still have some life left.'
Is that the only remedy?
ENTITLED TO THE BEST.
"Tho American people are entitled
to the best that there Is. (Applause.)
They are entitled to the best system on
every subject. 1 believe when these
questions are presented to the Ameri?
can people they will select and secure
the - best system I don't believe it
necessnry for us to sit down rjuietly
and permit a great aggregation of
wealth to strangle every competitor. I
don't believe that It is In accordance
with our dignity as a people, or in ac?
cordance with the rights of the people,
to say, becnuse a great corporation
Is organized that therefore it should
be permliled to go Into the Held of a
new corporation, undersell It until it
bankrupts It, raising the money by
higher prices somewhere else. I don't
think It 'is necessary for us to do that.
I have only suggested a plan. It may
not be the best plan. If you have
anything better, propose It. If there Is
nny amendment that you can think of
that will Improve It, suggest It. I
nm anxious to accept anything.
THE GREAT TROUBLE,
Let me suggest one other thing that
I believe will be a step In the right
direction. The great trouble has been
that, while our platforms denounce cor?
porations, corporations control the
elections, place under obligation to
them tho men who are elected to en?
force the law. (Applause). Let me
propose a remedy?not a remedy, but a
?top, I thrtrk, In Hie right direutionT-Lefc
the laws, State and National, make It
a penal offence for nny corporation to
contribute to the campaign fund of nny
political party. (Continued cheers and
applause). Nebraska has such a law,
passed two years ago; Tennessee has
such a law, passed two years ago; such
a law was passed, or was Introduced, in
the State of New York, but so far It
has not reached the stage of actual law
in the State of New York. (Laughter).
Now, I believe it Is a step in the right
direction. You remember the testi?
mony taken before a Senate Committee
a few years ago, when the head of the
sugar trust testified that the sugar
trust made It Its business to contribute
to campaign funds; and when asked to
which one it contributed, replied that
it depended upon circumstances. "To
which fund do you contribute In Mas?
sachusetts?" was asked. "To the Re?
publican fund." "To which fund in
New York?" "To the Democratic
fund." "To which fund in New Jer?
sey?" and the man says: "Well, I will
have to look to the books; that Is a
doubtful State," (Continued laughter
and applause). Now, that is almost a
literal reproduction of the testimony
of one great corporation on the sub?
ject of campaign contribution. I don't
mean to say that that remedy will be
a complete one, but I believe that when
you prevent a corporation from con?
trlbuting to campaign funds that you
take a step In the right direction to?
ward better legislation, because some
corporations are compelled to contri?
bute; they are blackmailed into contri?
butions, and such a law would protect
a corporation that did not want to eon
tribute, and also prevent a corporation
from contributing that did want to con?
POWER OP THE PEOPLE.
If the people are in earnest triey can
do it and you never could do anything
in this country until the people are In
earnest. When the American people un?
derstand what the monopoly question
means I believe that there will be no
power, political, financial or otherwise,
to prevent the people from tnklng pos?
session of every branch of government
from President to the Supremo Court
and making a government responsible
to the people's will. (Cheers.)
MR. BRYAN'S FIRST SPEECH.
HE DEALS THE TRUSTS SOME
(By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.")
Chicago, Sept. 16.?Central Music
Hall, the scene of tho Civic Federation
Conference on Trusts and Combina,
tlons, was packed from pit to gallery
to-Uay, when W. J. Bryan delivered his
reply to W. Bourke Cockran on the'
Mr. Bryan was introduced by Gov?
ernor Stanley, of Kansas, who acted as?
chairman of the opening session. Wild
applause greeted the Nebraskan. W.
Bourke Cockran listened Intently and
joined frequently in the applause. Mr.
Bryan spoke in part as follows:
A PERTINENT INQUIRY.
Within two years more trusts have
been organized than lit the previous
history of the country, and the peo?
ple now come face to face with this
"is the tru6t a blessing or a curse?
If a curse what remedy can be applied
to the curse?"
Monopoly In private hands Is Inde?
fensible from any standpoint, and In?
tolerable. I do not divide monopolies.
There can be no gV>od monopoly in pri?
vate hands tin til the Almighty sends us
angels to preside over us.
NO GOOD DESPOTISM.
There may be a despot who is better
than, another despot, but there is no
good despotism. The defence of the
monopoly is always placed on the
ground that if you will allow people to
control the market nnd fix the price
they lyllj be good to the people who
purchase of them. The entire defenco
of the trusts rests upon a money argu?
ment. If the trusts will eell an article
Tor a dollar less than the article will
cost under other'condltlons. then In the
opinion of some that proves a trust to
be a good thing. In the Ilrst place, I
W. JENNINGS BRYAN.
deny that tinder a monopoly the price
will be reduced. In the second place,
If under a monopoly Ujft prim \M ra
druced',','th'e- objections ttT a monopoly
from other standpoints fnr outweigh
the financial advantage that the trust
would bring. But I protest against set?
tling every question upon the dollar ar?
WARNED BY LINCOLN.
In the early years of Lincoln's admin?
istration he sent a message to Con?
gress, warning his countrymen against
the approach of monarchy. He said he
saw in the attempt to put capital even
on an equal footing with labor In the
structure of Government, the approach
of monarchy. Lincoln was right.
Whenever you put capital upon at,
equal footing with labor, or above la?
bor in the structure of government, you
are on the road to aid a government
that rests not on reason, but on force.
MONEY AND MAN.
Nothing Is more Important than that'
we shall, In the beginning, rightly un?
derstand the relation between money
and man. Man Is the creature of God
und money is the servant of man, and
1 protest against all theories that en?
throne money and debase mankind.
If you will go about over the country
you will see where people have, sub?
scribed money to establish enterprises
and where those enterprises, having
come under the control of the trusts,
have been closed up and stand now
the trust system. In any case of Io?
ns silent monuments to the sodom of
cal strikes and fires, the work goes
on elsewhere, thus preventing serious
When a branch ot Industry is found
In the hands of one of the great mo?
nopolies so that every skilled man
must go to one man for employment,
the one man fixes the wages as he
pleases and the laboring men will then
share the suffering of the men who
sell the raw mnterlnl.
I want to warn you that whcT the
monopoly has absolute control, brains
will be at a discount. We have not
yet had a taste of a complete trust.
But when the trust has rid itself of all
competitors what Is going to be the
result? My friends, all you have to

(Special Berlin Cable Letter.)
(Copyright, 1S9J>, by Associated Press.)
Berlin, Sept. 16.?Though the Govern?
ment has taken pains to preserve Its
equilibrium, the result of the Dreyfus
trlul has tremendously shocked the
German people. Irrespective of creed
and politics. The bitter Insult implied
by the total disregard on the part of
the Bennos court of the otllclal Rolch
sanzelger's declaration of Dreyfus' in?
nocence is deeply felt here. Owing to
the peculiar relations with France,
these sentiments have not found full
vent In the press and the Government
organs have even done their best to
smother thein, but, in conversation, the
real feelings of the people. Indignation
and almost contempt are universally
and freely expressed. A small major?
ity, composed of anti-Semites and some
Agrarians and Conservatives, more or
less approved the sentence. The Ham?
burger Nachrichten, formerly the late
Prince Bismarck's organ, made Itself
their inouth-plece, asserting repeatedly
that the evidence against Dreyfus this
lime was no more than had previously
been made public and that Dreyfus had
been convicted not for spying for Ger?
many, but for Russin, citing a mass of
alleged evidence in support of this as?
sertion. "When these were disputed' nnd
ridiculed by the bulk of the Dress, the
paper said the information was de?
rived from a source excluding all
doubt of its authenticity and correct?
ness nnd was corroborated, by several
competent persons. This view was
shared by a number of prominent pa?
pers. Including tho Deutsche Tuges Zei?
tung, the Stattsburger Zeitung and
THE GOVERNMENT NOT SUR-'
The correspondent here of the Asso?
ciated Press has interviewed a prom?
inent Foreign Orfich official, who said: j
"The Government was not surprised
at the conviction of Dreyfus. The
Relchsahzeiger publication was large?
ly for the purpose of depriving the
world of the chance of saying Dreyfus
had again been sentenced because Ger?
many kept silent. We postponed the
publication until the lasit moment. a9
wo suspected it might hurt rather than
benefit the accused.
"Regarding the assertions of the
Hamburger Nachrichsten, we think It
fiulle likely the paper is mnklng the
statements on good authority. Many
well-informed persons believed Dreyfus
had Russia, and not Germany, to deal
THE PROPOSED BOYCOTT.
"Concerning the talk of boycotting
the Paris Exposition, it is not Ger?
many's part to put herself In the fore?
ground In such a movement.. Tho offi?
cial relations of France and Germany
have no: suffered in the least through
the sentence. There is no Intention on
tho part of the Government to Join in
nny directly unfriendly steps against
France. The best proof that we do not
mean to suspend preparations for the
exposition Is thnt the chief commission?
er, Herr Richter, has Jvi3t started for
?.-.?.?>....:. ? !
This reported connection of Dreyfus
with Russia is also common talk in
diplomatic circles here, where it finds
credence. It is also- stated that evi?
dence of this was produced at the se?
cret session at Rennes, and M. Del- .
casse's hurried visit to St. Petersburg.
Just before tho court-martial, la cited
in support of this theory.
PUBLIC OPINION DIVIDED.
On the auestion of Joining in a boy?
cott, public opinion is very divided. The
big majority favor active participation
In the exposition, while a number of
leading nnd influential papers like the
Vosslshe Zeltung, Frankfurter Zeitung
nnd Tageblatt, advocate absentation.
It is reported that a few Important
firms and several commercial associa?
tions have declared their determina- ?
lion to abstain, but these, so far, are
the cxee?tion.and not the rule. The
bulk of inlluentlal opinion seems to
await the action of Germany's principal
await the tcalon of Germany's principal
competitors in tho commercial race, es?
pecially Greot Britain and the United
States, and will be guided therby.
A MEDIOCRE SUCCESS.
Tho army manoeuvers this year are
regarded as a mediocre success, owing
to various causes, chiefly unfavorable
weather. The manoeuvers ended earlier
than arranged because of the Intended
visit of the Czar to Potsdam on Thurs?
day, which was subsequently aban?
doned. Thus Emperor William had his
preparations for this Important visit
for nothing. Aside from these unto?
ward circumstances, other features
aroused serious criticism of the mili?
tary value of these manoeuvers. in
which three army corps, numbering
00.000 men. participated. The troops
marched well, in infantry, covering.

The Emperor's dashing charge at the
head of two cavalry divisions on Wed?
nesday was a line sight. But all the
experts agreed that such a charge In
actual war and under the same condi?

There was, however, the remarkable
fact that the physlcnl condition and
morale of the troops on both sides re?

THE SAMOAN MUDDLE.
Samoa still greatly exercises the
press. The opinion seems to be about
nanlmous that the new agreement, if
it comes In force, must bo modified. At
tho Foreign Ofllce the officials are very
reticent regarding the matter. An offi?
cial empowered to speak told the As?
sociated Press correspondent that Bar?
on ?p'eck Von Sternburg, the German
commissioner, who has been ill at Sa?
moa, has been granted sick leave in?
definitely. The propositions submitted
by tho commissioners are now being
considered by the three governments
and it is seriously hoped and expected
that all the points at issue will be
Anally and amicably adjusted.
DAMAGED BY RAINS.
The terrific rain storms In the whole
eastern part of southern Germany did
great damage. The temperature drop?
ped almost to the freezing polut' in
many localities.* Much snow fell In the
Bavarian Alps and even In the valleys.
'Die Iser rose suddenly. Munich was
overflowed and at the sports exposi?
tion, held on an Island, most of the
buildings were destroyed. Tho damage

The tone of the Agrarian and Conser?

Prince Hohenlohe. The Kreuze Zel?

promises the government a lot of trou?
