'^v?j'FaUmgAprloes";: caused by a rising
V ; dollar and the -high tariff, have con
trlbuted th,e; desire to Secure the fruits

V. ? ?-''Some have suggested that to put
' everything on the frCs list that trusts\
? . . make,>would destroy the trusts. But I
do not' believe that. yo? could destroy
. all trusts by putting all trust-made
v" articles oh;the free llst:, because If an
"article can be produced in this coun-^
iV.Vtry as.cheaply as It can be produced
.*>^ abroad, then the trust could exist with
? rout the benefit of any. tariff at all,
V"--': though It'! could not extort so much.
We Cannot destroy monopoly until we
lay:the axe at the root of the tree, and
\ ir.ake monopoly impossible by law.
,, RAILROAD DISCRIMINATION.
"Discrimination by railroads has aid?
ed trusts. That can be remedied by
/ Jaws which will'place producers on
equal footing. But the remedy must
. be complete enough.to prevent the or?
ganization of a monopoly. We differ
more In remedy than we do In our optn
%?'?; a Ion ot the' trust. Few people will de
?C',';V;.'len'd the trust as a principle. As to the
remedy both State and nation should
"' . have concurrent'remedies. In the first
place every State haB or should have
the right to create any private corpo
;'?V' ratlori which- Is conducive to a welfare
of the people of that State. I believe
that w^e can safely entrust to the peo
! pie of a State the settlement of a qucs
fflfc tlon which concerns them. If they cre?
ate a corporation and It becomes de
structlve ?f * their best Interests, they
can destroy .that.corporation, and wt
,'^V.can safely trust them both to create
and to annihilate If conditions make
THE POWER NEEDED.
"In the second place the State has 01
should have the right to prohibit any
foreign corporation from doing business
in the State, and it ought to have or
has the right to Impose such restrlc
; . Hons and limitations as the people ol
the State may think necessary upon
? any foreign corporation doing business
In the State. I believe in an addition
of State remedy, but there must be a
"Congress has, or should have, the
power to place such restrictions and
limitations, even to the point of prohi?
bition, upon any corporation organized
in one State that wants to do business
outside of the State contrary to public
"I believe that these concurrent rem?
edies will reach the difficulty, that the
people of every State shall first decide
whether they want to create a corpo?
ration; ? that they shall, secondly, de?
cide whether they want any outside
corporation to do business in the State
and If so, upon what conditions, and,
thirdly, that Congress shall exercise the
right to place upon every corporation
? v. doing business outside of the State in

of the people.
A SARCASTIC COMMENT.
Col. Bryan at thlH point read the fa?
mous circular letter advertising the In?
corporation laws of Delaware. He
commented'sarcastically on advantages
set forth In the letter.
A person in the audience inquired:
"Delaware and New Jersey are both
Democratic States, are they not?"
To which Mr. Bryan replied:
"'They were not in 1896."
He continued '
"I have read this letter in order to
show you that where a State can gain
an advantage from the incorporation
? of these great aggregations of wealth,
It Is not safe-to place the people of
'" other States at the tender mercy of
the people of such a. State as may de?
sire to secure its running expenses
from: the 'taxation of corporations or?
ganized to prey upon people outside.
A REMEDY SUGGESTED.
"Iam ready to adopt any method for
I-the annihilation nf Unat? One that I
suggest is this:
"That Congress should pasB a law
providing thait no corporation organ?
ized.'in any State should do business
outside of the State In which it Is
organized until It receives from some
power created by Congress a license
' authorizlng.lt to do business outside of
its own State. Now, if the corporation
must pome to this body created by Con?
gress to secure permission to do busi?
ness outside the State, then that li?
cense can be granted upon condition
"Which will, in the first place, prevent
the watering of stocks; In the second
place", prevent monopoly in any branch
. < ', of business, and, third, provide for pub?
licity as to all of the transactions and
? . business of the corporation.
"If 'this is unconstitutional and so
declared by the Supreme Court, I am
in favor of an amendment to the Con
ptltution .that, will give to Congress
power to destroy every trust In the
"j/v-country ,In my, judgment, when you
i.'; take from monopoly the power to issue
wittered stock you will go more than
half the way toward destroying monop?
oly in the United States.
"You can provide for publicity and
that annually, or, pit such other times
the corporations shall make returns of
Its business or Its earnings, and will
go another long step towards the dc
. struction. of the principle of monopoly.
. XA STEP FURTHER.
''But I am hot wJIMng to stop there,
arid, therefore, as a. third condition, I
suggest that no'license shall be grant?
ed until the corporation shows that It
has not'had" a monopoly and is not at
tempting a monopoly of any branch of
^? industry or any article of merchandise,
(ihd then provide that if the law Is
7ii.v Vl?lStad' the license can be revoked. I
fit .' do^not believe In the Government giv
V^ 'lng privileges to be exercised by a
? ?? , corporation without reserving the right
.tO5 withdraw them when those prlvl
V; leges become hurtful to the people.
%$tV???"My. contention has been that we
$*-;??hfcvc been placing the dollar above the
man, that we have been picking out
^?/.favorites irt government; that we have
been bestowing upon them special prl

FOR THE CANTA.CUZDNE-GRANT
fBy Telegraph to V|rg,nian-Pllot.)
Newport, R. I.. Sept. 16.?The plans
for the Cantacuzcnc-Grant wedding
has been changed. It was Intended
that the Episcopnl service should take
place In All Saints' Chapel on Monday.
September 25th, followed by the Greek
ceremony in private at Mrs Palmer's
vllle. The Prince is a Greek Catholic,
nnd the marriage laws of his church,
which nre very strict, do not recognize
the validity of the marriage of a Rus?
sian performed by a clergyman out?
side that faith. The head of the Rus?
sian Church lin the United States in?
formed the Prince that the Russian
ceremony must take place Ilrst or not
at nil, nnd that a refusal to comply
would place the Prince in a bad light
in his own country and might cause
his public discipline or injure his
standing 'in the army, whore all officers
are supposed to live up to the laws of
the Greek Church.
The advice of the Greek bishop was
assented to by tho Prince, which com?
pelled a change in the plans. The
Greek ceremony must come first. There?
fore, In private, on Sunday evening.
September 21th, tho Prince and Miss
Julia Dent Grant will be married by
Rev. Father Hotovitzky. of New York,
assisted by two other Russian clergy?
men of New York. Honore Palmer,

Washington, Sept. 16.?The scanty de?
