VIGOROUS DENUNCIATION OF BRYAN

names to conjure with on the evening

with humor, fiery denunciation and

impassioned appeal — little wonder the
great audience at the Metropolitan
opera house last night applauded and
cheered. It was an audience splendid
in appearance as well as proportions.
The best representatives of the city's
interests were there, regardless of
party affiliations, and they filled the
boxes, a part of the stage and all of
the seats in the lower part of the house
and in the dress circle. The aisles and
foyers were filled — probably not less
than 2,000 people in all. It was a dig
nified. Intelligent audience, one that
honored the distinguished gentlemen
by its presence. There were ladies —
hundreds of them; there were strang
ers from out of the city, who came
some of them long distances; in the
boxes were the leaders of business and
social life; on the platform were some
of the best known representatives of
labor's Interests, clergymen and clerks,
bankers and breadwinners form the
humbler walks of life sat side by side
and gave approval to the sentiments
that were uttered from the platform.
In many respects it was a remarkable
gathering. The speakers are repre
sentatives of a political party that is
doomed to defeat. But if one might
judge from the approval of their audi
tors, these speakers are the forerun
ners of the old Democracy, purified and
regenerated by the ordeal of the cam
paign. Strong in the hope of the fu
ture, uncompromising In their adher
ence to the principles of the party that
Jefferson founded, defiant in the face
of a defeat that party treachery has
made possible, these three, true to the
candidates of their party, enunciated
the faith that was In them and that
found echo in the hearts of hundreds
of their auditors.

Shortly after 8 o'clock Dr. Williams,
chairman of the county committee of
the National Democracy, came upon
the stage, followed by ex-Gov. Flower,
F. W. M. Cutcheon and D. W. Lawler.
Their appearance was the signal for
an outburst of applause that lasted
for some time. Dr. Williams stood with
uplifted hand as a signal for silence,
and in a few words introduced Mr.
Cutcheon as the first speaker of the
Mr. Cutcheon's address was the ef
fort of a studious, scholarly orator. Of
the many fine speakers in St. Paul Mr.
Cutcheon takes a front rank for clear
ness and elegance of language and
force of argument. Full of thought,
strong in argument, the address was
delivered in a calm and dispassionate
manner that carried conviction. The
rounded sentences betrayed evidence
of care in preparation, the logic of the
argument betokened familiarity with
the subject at issue. His appeal to the
patriotism of the nation, and his ref
erence to Lincoln were signals for out
bursts of applause that showed the
deep hold the speaker's thought had
upon his hearers. "It will be an evil
day when the people will have to
choose between the paternalism af Re
publicanism and the socialism of Pop
ulism," said Mr. Cutcheon, .nd the
storm of approval that followed was
long and loud.
It was during Mr. Cutcheon's address
that a couple of rowdies sitting in front
seats began a disturbance. One of the
'men persisted in smoking, the other
in making half audible remarks that
were not complimentary to the speaker
or to the audience. Mr. Lawler quiet
ly stepped to the front of the plat
form and admonished the men to main
tain silence. The reply was rude and
insulting, and the men rose to depart
with some threatening remark. "You
can't do that here," said Mr. Lawler.
"This is not Missouri." There were a
few hisses, and someone cried: "Put
them out," but Mr. Cutcheon said:
"Gentlemen, don't get excited over a
little Populistlc moonshine," and the
incident passed from memory,
Mr. Cutcheon Introduced Gov. Flow
er as "a man who did not wait four
months to determine what he should
do when the Democrats betrayed their
party at Chicago, but who rose la his
1896.— TWENTY-TWO PAGES.
place and announced that he would
'repudiate the repudiators.' "
Everybody knew who was referred to
and the cheering: began before Gov.
Flower rose to greet the audience. It
has been said that Gov. Flower Is not
an orator. The statement Is true,
doubtless, but there are few speakers
who have been heard In St. I»aul during
the campaign who have been so enter
taining. His was not strictly speaking
a political address. Rather like the
martyr president, to whom he re
ferred so often, he is a teller of stories,
each with a point so clear that the
audience sees the application at once.
A newspaper report made of his anec
dotes alone would be interesting
reading. But this comment is
no reflection upon the New
Yorker's strength o* argument.
His appeals to the humorous
side of his hearers adds to the force of
his utterances. Ai* intimate knowledge
of Minnesota and her people, a man
of keen business sense and ability, a
politician of the- highest and cleanest
type, it is little wonder that his re
marks were adapted to the occasion
and found fave t - w"ith all. As an owner
of many farms he knows the effect of
depression on farmem, and as a busi
ness man he know* the cause thereof.
Therefore his arguments against a re
pudiated currency and the doctrines of
Populism were the utterances of a man
gifted with knowledge. Happily, as he
confessed, there was no reason for ling
ering over the "crime of '73," and he
pleaded guilty to satisfaction thet but
once more in the campaign will he be
called upon to talk about free silver
and that will be his final speech to be
delivered in Indiana on Monday. The
brief story of his career and its hard
ships, told with softened voice as he
referred to the trials and hardships of
a widowed mother, made a good lm
piession on the audience, many of
whom perhaps, looked upon the man as
one of those whom great wealth has
made proud and cold erf heart. But the
Falstafflan proportions arid genial man
ner of the speaker warmed the audi
ence as no other speaker has during the
When Gov. Flower ceased there were
cheers of anticipation. Although the
hour was late no one left the hall.
Everybody knew that Daniel W. Law
ler was going to express an opinion
of the men who betrayed the Demo
crats at Chicago. There was more
applause and it lasted longer than at
any other time during the evening
when he advanced to the footlights.
He said some of the things that would
have been expressed had not Gov. Pal
mer's arrival at the Auditorium on
the previous Saturday night interrupt
ed him. Like David Hill, he said "I am
a Democrat," and unlike the New
York senator he told exactly where he
stands in the present campaign and
the reason therefor. Mr. Lawler's
eloquence is of the flery, impetuous
kind that never hestfiates for a word,
never falteis in giving hard knocks to
his enemies, yet is true and subtle and
forcible. To his enemies be Is unspar
ing in invective; no one can be more
choice of language in patriotic efforts
and the appeals to reason are noble in
sentiment, with a/ true and vigorous
ring. His reference to the candidate
of the fusion ticket for governor was
the signal for a few 4 hirjses, and his
denunciation of that candidate was
unsparing. His appeal to the voters
to cast a ballot for Cov. Clough. as
the representative of a party that
would not dishonor the state, was re
ceived with tremendous cheering.
Mr. Lawler's brief talk was all too
short for the audience, wiio called for
more. "It's all over but the shout
ing, ladies and gentlesraen," said Mr.
Cutcheon, and the band struck up a
medley in which "Yankee poodle" on
the clarinets and "Star Spangled Ban
ner" on the trombones struggle for
supremacy. Then thsre was more
cheering for the speakers and the
opera house was soon emptied and
When Dr. William* opened the meet
ing he said:
Ladles and Gentlemen: The National De
mocracy of the state of Minnesota have ov-
ery reason to be proud of this evidence that
you show in the manner in which the cam
paign has been conducted in this state, and
as It will be conducted to the end, I have
the honor to introduce Mr. Cutcheon as the
presiding officer of the meeting. (Applause)
MR. CUTCHEON'S ADDRESS.
Polished and Scholarly Effort in Be
half of True Democracy.
Mr. Cutcheon said: Fellow Citizens, and
Ladles and Gentlemen: I congratulate you that
this long, passionate, heart-breaking campaign
is finished; and I congratulate you th#.t it has
been finished with the usaraace of a victory
for honest m&aey, for iaulonal honor and for
the maintenance of the moral integrity of the
great republic (Applause.! : and i congratu
late you that the rock-ribbed Democracy of
old Ramsey county, having contributed not a
little to this result, will put the >eal of linal
achievement upon it early next Tuesday
morning. (Renewed applause.)
All through this campaign o-ur free silver
friends have been calling us bolters. Now, my
friends, I haven't one word of bittanies^ rr
one drop of rancher in my heart for any one
of them. For a dozen years I have been light
ing with them, shoulder to shoulder; in many
a hopeless breach, and in many a desperate
c-n-slaught we have marched together; as
men they were good enough for me then, and
as men they are good enough for me now.
They have fallen by the way, they have taken
a mistaken path, but all through this cam
paign we have been laboring, toiling, con
scientiously, with all our hearers in the work,
to gather up the stones Whc.h at Chicago
they shook from the grand old temple of
Democracy and to piece them together again,
forming a new home out of the old material
for the Democracy of the past, and it is my
fondest hope that four years from now, we
may once again all be gathered together in
this house, worshiping the same old faith,
holding together the same old creed. (Ap
They called us bolters, gentlemen. I have
scorned, through this campaign, to reply to
that charge as I might have replied, simply
with the statement that they have nominated
for the presidency a man who la not a Dem
ocrat, and have adopted a platform that is
anti-Democratic; I have scorned to say, as I
might, that the Democratic party for a cen
tury has stood for individual liberty, and that
the Chicago platform proclaims the tyranny
of the mob; that the Democratic platform has
stood for the constitution and the mainte
nance of its institutions, and that the Chi
cago platform seeks to raze that constitu
tion and all its institutions; I have scorned
to say simply that the Democratic party has
stood for individual honesty and for national
honor, and that the Chicago platform en
courages individual dishonesty and national
repudiation; I have scorned to say that the
Democratic party for a century has stood for
freedom of trade, freedom of industry, free
dom of speech, freedom of contract, and that
the Chicago platform makes vain regrets of
the work of a past lifetime; I have scorned to
say simply that the Democratic party
throughout its history has stood for the en
forcement of the law, and that the Chicago
platform announces this novel doctrine, that,
while it has the function of government to
punish crime, it is without the sphere of gov
ernment to prevent crime. (Applause.) I have
scorned to say simply that the Democratic
party, recognizing that whenever the national
legislature has attempted to usurp any of
the functions of the state or the state has
reached out its greedy grasp for any of the
rights of the citizen, the supreme court of
the United States has stretched forth its arm
and stayed the hand of the usurper, and rec
ognizing that fact, has been the chiefest
guardian of that most august tribunal of
history, and that the Chicago platform con
tains a threat that henceforth an appeal shall
lie from that tribunal to the caucus of the
These things have been sufficient answer.
But in addition to them we have replied:
"Our country, which was the birthplace of
liberty, which is the hope of humanity, where
lie the graves of our fathers, and which we
hope to leave as an honorable heritage to our
children, is greater than any party, and for
it we would sunder ties far more dear than
those of politics. (Applause.) Tonight our
country calls us, and he who, when he hears
his country's voice would not turn his face
from the beckoning finger of party associa
tion to that high place where patriotism Bits
enthroned above all partisanship, would not
be worthy of his country, would not be
worthy of himself, would not be worthy any
thing of life that deserves his sacrifice."
It is the dearest memory of my life that
when, back in the days of 1860, the integrity
of this nation was once before attacked, my
gwod old father, a young man then, led many
a charge of the gallant boys of the North
into the belching mouth of the rebel cannon,
that he was one of that blue wave, crested
with the bayonets of steel, that ewept back
ward the tide of rebellion into its own South
ern seas; and, feeling this way, I could not
for a moment give my adhesion to any such
doctrine as that which was announced in
At this point a man sitting In the flrst or
second row made a disturbance by muttering
and hissing his disapproval.
Gov. Flower — This is not Missouri! (Great
applause and cries of "Throw him out," and
the disturber of the peace made his exit with
his hat upon* his head.)
Mr. Cutcheon — My friends, there is no oc
casion for getting excited over a little Popu
listic moonshine. (Laughter and applause.)
Feeling this way, gentlemen, is It a won
der that we could not assent to this doctrine
that there la a federal government that ta no
government; that we cannot stand upon a
platform that denounces that man who la
worthy to have been the only Democratic
E resident in the third of a century because ha
as enforced the federal laws, as he swore
upon hts oath to do? (Applause.) I say that
the Chicago platform denounced Grover
Cleveland. (Applause.) It will be his high
est title, in the eyes of posterity, to honor
and greatness, that it did denounce him.
(Renewed applause.) The denunciation was
but slightly veiled, it was not sufficiently
veiled, but that behind it you could see the
grinning features of Ben Tillman and of John
What are the facts upon which that de
nunciation was based? This is a government
of divided function. The administration of a
portion of the laws is confided to the states,
the administration of a portion to the federal
government; and among those confided to the
federal government are the laws which af
fect interstate commerce and the carriage of
the federal malls. At Chicago there was a
strike, the mails were stopped, interstate
commerce was interfered with, and then
there followed a scene upon which every
American must look back with horror and
regret. I don't charge it upon the railway
boys who Initiated that strike, because they
are a law-abiding and a law-loving class of
men, but in every great community like Chi
cago there is a class of men who live in the
cellars and in the alleys waiting until some
ogre's feast Is spread for them so that under
the cover of the night they may come out and
devour it, and this feast was spread and they
came with torch and bullet, and in the city
of Chicago mob law reigned supreme, and
every hour was marked by the going out of
some human life. Then the federal courts
were appealed to, and they believing —
what has been and always will be the law —
that the government has the right to prevent
crime, particularly a crime against its own
integrity, as it has the right to punish the
violation of the law, the courts issued their
writs of injunction, placed them in the hand3
of their marshals, their marshals were pow
erless to execute them; they appealed to the
attorney general for the federal troops, and
he to the president, and the troops were sent —
sent, my friends, without the permission of
John P. Altgeld, and I hope that no presi
dent of the United States may ever so demean
himself as under such circumstances to ask
the permission of Mr. Altgeld or any other
governor. (Great applause.)
The riot was stopped, interstate commerce
went on its way, and so did the federal
mails. Do you know when the section of
the statute under which Mr. Cleveland sent
his troops to Chicago had last before beem
appealed to? Why, there was a time, gen
tlemen, in 1861, when some other men, down
in Charleston Harbor, prevented the collec
tion of federal revenues, plundered the fed
eral arsenals, hauled down the federal flag
and fired upon Fort Sumter. And then there
came a man. born as in a miracle, a man
of matchless tact, of profound statesmanship,
of deep-seated patriotism, a man always
watchful of the laws and of the guaranties of
the constitution, and his name was Abraham
Lincoln (applause), and he looked into the
federal statutes to find some Justification for
putting down this attack upon his country's
life, and he found it written in the statutes
of America upon the same page and in the
same section that Grover Cleveland found his
warrant for sending the boys In blue to the
city of Chicago. (Applause.) And I say to
you that If there is any man here who wore
the blue, he is putting a He upon all the
suffering and sacrifice of those four long
years if, whether free silver man or not
he votes to sustain the declaration of the
Chicago platform. (Applause.)
Now, gentlemen, we are not going to give
over the federal government into the hands
of men who say there is no federal govern
ment; we are not going to declare that it is
a government without power to enforce its
laws, and therefore nothing but a shell. This
issue was buried thirty years ago, buried in
the graves of five hundred thousand brave
fellows, who paid, all over the great South
the last full measure of their devotion to
their country. It is burled, and I don't" be
lieve it can be resurrected. But if its wraith
ever walks the earth, if it today threatens
us again, the voters erf America, in the sil
ence of the booth next Tuesday, alone with
their conscience and their God, will find
some conjuration to dispel it. (Applause.)
But, my Republican friends say to me "If
you feel this way, why aren't you supporting
William MeKinley?" Now. my Republican
friends, I want to tell you why I am not
supporting William MeKinley. Perhaps you
don't want to hear it, but you have come
here for the purpose of hearing it, and you
are going to hear it. (Applause.) There are
some of us who have given their years of
devotion to the Democratic party, who have
been taught and who have been teaching and
who believe that the doctrines of the Repub
lican party have been the mothers and fath
ers of this very principle which underlies
this damnable heresy of the free coinage of
silver. We believe that it will be an evil
day when this country Is left to choose be
tween the paternalism of Republicanism
upon the one hand and the socialism of Pop
ulism on the other. (Applause.) We believe
there should be a great constitutional party
advocating the principles of Individual lib
erty, and we believe that there is no way to
maintain it except for those Democrats who
believe as we believe to rally in this cam
paign. Just upon the heels of the action at
Chicago, and raise the time-worn and battle
stained banner of true Democracy and hold
it upright in this nation, around which the
men, who in their hearts believe as we do,
may In the future rally. We believe that If
we do not do this thing the time will come
when the Republican party, committed as it
Is to the doctrine of paternalism, will find

for Mr. Lind Instead of Mr.
To the Editor of the Globe.
RED WING, Oct. 31.— 1 have read
with regrret the address to the National
Democracy issued by Messrs Wijson,
Flandrau and others. I do not under
stand why any of these gentlemen
have been in any manner identified
with the National Democratic move
ment. Early in the campaign they
unreservedly surrendered to McKinley*
Ism. Their appeal now is to those who
refused to follow them. They do not
speak for the National Democracy—*
nor do they assume to do so.
There is danger, however, that mantf
Democrats in the state will fail to
draw the distinction which exists be-t
tween sound money Democrats who
have thus surrendered, and those who
have yielded neither to Republican noi?
to Populistic paternalism, and that
this address will be considered by them*
as emanating from gentlemen who are
in sympathy with the Palmer-Buck
ner movement. That movement would
have had ten fold the impetus it has.
if it was not for the suspicion that
it was being utilized merely for the
purpose of raking Republican, state
and national, chestnuts out of the
fire. To many this ill-timed and ill
omened "address" will come as a con
firmation of their suspicion. Its effect
will be to drive many a disgusted
Palmer voter into the Bryan column.
H Bryan carries this state, the un
fortunate gentlemen who have thus
undertaken to influence an organiza
tion to which they do not belong, can
console themselves with the reflection
that they have contributed their ut
most to accomplish that result.
As a National Democrat, but not as
an official representative of the Na
tional Democracy, I earnestly protest
against the spirit, language and pur
pose of this address. To me McKin
leyism is as repulsive as is Bryanism.
Behind the one are the trusts, corpora
tions and combines, "the communism
of wealth" as Mr. Cleveland has apUey
stated, and behind the other are the
equally but no more dangerous forcea
of Populistic communism. Between the
lawless rich and the lawless poor, be
tween the millionaire and the mob,
true Democracy must stand uocon
taminated by either, a check and a
barrier to the usurpations of the one
and the violence of the other. This
country has never been so much in
need of a great conservative, balance
df-power-holding force in our politics
as it is today. Such a restraining
farce, if it exists at all, is embodied in
the National Democracy. It is around
this nucleus that the Democracy of
the future— if there be a future— must
rally and reunite. The fear of Bryan's
election is groundless. His over
whelmning defeat is an assured cer
tainty. With his defeat the peculiar ism
which has cemented together his
motly following will dissolve, and
disintegration absolute and complete
must ensue. The National Democracy
is the only magnet which can draw
to itself all that is good of the dis
rupted mass, and interpose a barrier
to the swelling flood of Republican
I protest, then, against this appeal
for surrender. To the unterrifled De
mocracy, never so strong as when
menaced wltn defeat, never so loyal
as when inspired by hope, I in turn ap
peal, as a Democrat, for steadfastness
to Democracy. John M. Palmer is a
principle. He is a stalwart protest
against surrender to Populism — equally
so is he a protest against surrender to
McKinleyism. A Democrat's duty is
clear and unmistakable. He must hew
to the line, let the chips fall where they
will. Whether Bryan or McKinley is
the result, let the men who nominated
them bear the full burden of the re
sponsibility of their election So far
as I am concerned, I limit my protest
to the folly and madness of the Chicago
convention. The anxiety manifested in
this "address" for the re-election of
Gov. Clough surprises me. I was not
aware that the prosperity and good
morals of this state were suspended
upon the tremulous thread of David
M. Clough'a gubernatioral existence!
The Pioneer Press has derisively desig
nated that able and refined states
man as "a typical American." I did
not suppose, however, that he was the
"great and only" one. But I forbear
to discuss Clough. The insinuation that
the business and prosperity of the peo
ple of Minnesota would be to the slight
est extent imperilled by the election of
Mr. Lind, is sheer nonsense. I know
John Lind well. He is intelligent, edu
cated, Incorruptible, clean, in every re
spect a gentleman. If elected, virtuous
womanhood need not blush, nor honest '
manhood hang its head in shame when
the name of Minnesota's next governor
is mentioned. The affairs of this state
are 8 s safe in his hands as In those of
any man who has ever had that office.
He Is neither a Waite, nor a Bewail,
nor is he a Clough. He is a free silver-*
ite and a protectionist, but neither free
silver nor protection can play any part
in the state polity of Minnesota. He
is a Republican. I would prefer a Dem
ocrat; but experience has shown that
in some mysterious manner Democratic
candidates for that office are deprived
of Democratic support at the polls. I
shall vote for John Lind — not becauf
he is a Republican, but because of the?
two Republicans, he is by all odds th&
In short, a vote for Palmer and for «
Lind, and for Fitzpatrlck in the First
and Peck in the Third congressional
district, it seems to me, will satisfy any
well developed Democratic conscience,
and is a vote'for which a Democrat can
safely "take the chances."
