the Chicago Record: These meetings
loa'gbt (bow that the people of New
York are for William J. Uryun. There
has never been a demonstration like
this In the history of toe democracy of
this city. The audiences have listened
to Mr. B-yan respectfully and with un
derstanding. What hi has said tonight
b s sunk In, and every man wb j has
heard him will be a missionary among
bis republican friends. The westber
was against lb but tbe democriey of
New York is superior f wea.her con
ditions. The demonstration would have
been overwhelming bad !he rain r.ot

anybody who attended any of the

about the enthusiasm and earnestness
of the democratic voters of New York.
