CANDIDATE BRYAN STUPING IN MISSOURI. The Democratic Nominee Addresses Three Audiences at St Louis. One in the Hall Where Major McKinley Was Nominated. His Remarks Confined Solely to a Discussion of the Financial Ques tion—Bryan Also Makes Two Speeches at Kansas City to the Workingmen. ST. LOUIS, Sept, 12.—Three big audi ences were addressed by W. J. Bryan to-night, and each gave him a reception of which any man might be proud. In company with Governor Stone and other prominent politicians, Mr. Bryan •was greeted at the Union Station by a crowd of several thousand people, who made the spacious train shed ring with their shouts. After supper Mr. Bryan, at 8 o'clock, started out on his round of speech-making, doing the jumping from place to place in a special trolley. Con cordia Park, the Auditorium and Sportsmen Park were the places where he spoke. Concordia Park has a great open am pitheater, its terraced sides forming the seats for the multitudes that had gathered there. To-night every bit of space on the floor and on the terraces was taken up by the spectators, and when the Democratic candidate arrived be found an audience of between 15,000 and 20,000 people. The scene was pic turesque, with the solid lines of human ity along the stoping banks slightly higher than those below, while Chinese lanterns suspended from many trees threw a soft light over the assemblage. Mr. Bryan was received with round after round of applause, and after an introduction by H. J. Brady, Chairman of tbe State Central Committee, made an address half an hour long. The great Auditorium, where Major McKinley was named by the Republi can Convention was more than three miles away, and when Mr. Bryan ar rived there at 8:45 he found the inte rior packed from floor to ceiling with people anxious to hear him talk. It is stated that 15.000 chairs had been placed in the hall, and to-night not only did every chair have an occupant, but at least 5,000 people crowded the stage, aisles and the spaces back of the gal leries. The heat was enervating, and several women fainted. Hon. John Allen, Congressman from Mississippi, entertained the vast audience until Mr. Bryan arrived. It was the same story over again at Sportsmens' Park, which Mr. Bryan reached at 10:15. The crowd there was equal to that at the Auditorium, and was quite as enthusiastic. At Concordia Hall Mr. Bryan said ln part: "There are some who believe that the restoration of the silver coinage until other nations come to our aid is im possible There are others who believe that the free coinage of both silver and gold at the present legal ratio of 1G to 1 can be accomplished without the aid or consent of any other nation, and that this is absolutely essential to national prosperity. (Applause and cries of "Good.") This is the great question which must be submitted to the ballot and in order that you may understand this question I desire to submit a few arguments to-night in behalf of the restoration of free coinage. "I wish in the first plae» to state that I believe that every American citizen ia competent to form an opinion on this issue. The Republican party is making an effort to supply the people with the money needed in their business through their public men and otherwise. They call these men financiers, who assume that a country growing in population cannot survive unless the mints are kept closed. "Now give me your attention, my friends. In this Government publica tion issued by the Treasury Department on the Ist of July, 1896, I find a state ment of the amount of money of all kinds in circulation among thepeoplcfor the various years. Let me call your at tention to the amount in 1894, 1895 and 1890. In 1*94 the amount of money in lIEREJT IS! B For $2 50. Single or Double Breasted. SCHOOL SUITS $1 00. COMPANY 004. 606, GoB J STREET. circulation, according to this report, was $1,000,000,000. In 1895 the amount of money In circulation had fallen to $1, --001,000,000, a decrease ln one year of $39,000,000. On June 30, 1890, the amount In circulation had fallen to $1. --500.000,000. It means that in two years' time the amount of money In circulation among the people had fallen about $155,000,000 in amount. In other words, in two years time there has has been a decrease of nearly 10 per cent, in the circulating medium of the people. This, my friends, is the treasury report, and it shows that while the per capita circu lation in 1894 was $24 28. it had fallen to $21 28, a fall of more than $3 per capita. "Now I have called your attention to this decrease, I wish to show you, my friends, that Instead of being a decrease there should have been an increase each year. Senator John Sherman made a speech on the sth of July, 1890, and in the course of that speech he said we needed an increase in the currency of Something; like fifty millions a year, and yet instead of that increase we have a decrease of about $155,000,000, making a total deficit of about (255,000,000. Now if Senator Sherman was right then in saying the people needed more money every year, then I want to ask you why it is that the Republican party have, in the face of this decrease, made no pro visions to supply the requirements of increasing population. When we speak about these matters our opponents tell us that we do not understand mathe matics. A man does not need to know much about mathematics to know that a nation that requires an increased cir culation must make some provision to meet that need, but the Republican party pays no attention to the manner in which this decreased circulation has been brought about." At the Auditorium Mr. Bryan said, ln part: "If the Republican party had declared in favor of a gold standard its orators might have gone before the people and advocated the gold standard as a good thing. To have done so they would have had to close their ears to the cry of dis tress which comes up everywhere. But they did not declare for a gold standard. Why? Because those who favored a gold standard never fought an open fight in their lives. Gold is a coward. It will not meet its enemies in an open fight, and those who advocate a gold standard have never been willing to face their en emies before the American people. "Let me give you an evidence of the fact that our opponents are not willing to take the American people into their confidence and declare before the Amer ican people the policy which they de sire. This night recalls my last visit to this hall, a little less than three months ago. I attended a national convention held in this hall. I saw here adopted the first platform ever adopted by a na tional convention in all the history of the United States which declared that the United States must depend upon foreign nations for permission to do what our people desired to do. I saw adopted in this hall a platform which pledged the Republican party to get rid of a gold standard and substitute bimet allism as soon as the leading nations of Europe would help us to do so. Before an audience that did not equal this, I saw this platform adopted, and I am de lighted that an audience greater in size gathered not from all the Union, but from a single city, has met in this same hall to pronounce condemnation upon that platform. "My friends, in a country like ours agitation Is the only means by which the people can secure relief. And if the - e men had their way about it, they would make it a penal offense for man to rais j his voice against the financial system which they would fasten on the Ameri can people. (Applause.) I repeat that these men who tell you that everything would be all right if you would just have a quiet settlement of the money question, and then do not tell you what the quiet settlement is. or if they know they are unwilling to tell us. (Applause.) You will find sume of these banking In stitutions —I do not say all of them, be cause there are In the banking business men who will respect the Constitution aiid laws of the United States —but I say some of these banking Institutions tell a man they will not lend money to him nor extend his notes unless he votes as they ask him to. Yes, and why do they do it? It is because there are banking firms in New York City who tell the banks that if they do not do as they want thc-m to they will not extend credit to them, and then there are banks ln London who tell the banks in New York that if they do not run the United States on the European plan they wiIl««ot ex tend credit to them. (Tremendous cheering.) "I wonder if those who are assembled here know what is going on under the linancial policy which has cursed this country for the last twenty years. Let me tell you some things. They have presented greenbacks and Treasury ie |ea for redemption, and. instead of the Government exercising the right to redeem these greenbacks or Treasury notes in either gold or silver, the pres ent Administration and the Adminis tiations of several years past have sur rendered that right to the holder of the note, and under that right the Treas ury of the United States has proved helpless In the hands of those who, pre tending to uphold the Nation's credit, have plundered the Nation to fill their own pockets with the people's money." BRYAN AT KANSAS CITY. KANSAS CITY (Mo.), Sept. 12— Wm. J. Bryan made two Speeches in Kansas City this morning. One was to the workingmen in the packing-house dis trict.

WILL NOT TAKE THE STUMP. McKinley Only to Address People Who Visit Him at Canton. CHICAGO, Sept. 11.—Chairman Han na was asked this morning what would be done about the petition now circu lated among organized labor request ing McKinley and Bryan to meet in this city in joint debate. Hanna said: "Mr. McKinley Is not going to take the stump. The Democrats would un doubtedly like very much to see him chasing over the country in a wdld scramble for votes as Mr. Bryan has insisted upon doing. Mr. McKinley will continue to conduct himself as a man who appreciates the dignity and im portance of the position he seeks. He will not lend himself to any catch-pen ny scheme for the sake of satisfying the curious to make himself talked about. I have heard this discussed. I think I know what I am talking about when I say Mr. McKinley will continue to address the people who visit him at Canton." Bicycle fleet at Denver. DENVER, Sept. 12.—0. K. Hachen berger defeated A.

CHICAGO, Sept. 11.—There was a big rally here to-night of the combined op position to William J. Bryan and free silver, Hon. Bourke Cockran of New- York delivered an eloquent and notable address at the Auditorium before near ly 0,000 people under the auspices of the American Honest Money League. The only decoration in the magnificent theater was a great American Hag draped behind the orator and Demo cratic statesman. I'he audience be longed to the business class, and the frequent outbursts of applause which followed the rounded periods of the speaker attested the thorough sympa thy with the sentiments expressed. There were so many applications for tickets to the meeting that an overflow one was held in Battery D, which was attended by 2,000 people, who listened to addresses by local advocates of gold. Mr. Cockran was unable to address the second meeting on account of failing voice. Mr. Cockran, who was received with a storm of cheers and applause and wav ing of handkerchiefs from the standing multitude, said in part: "We can have neither part nor act with a man who prosecutes a campaign upon assertions that are libels on the grandeur of our institutions and the patriotism of our citizens; on the maj esty of our Bepublic, and on the virtue and intelligence of our people. I have followed all of his speeches since he left New York, and I cannot discover of what he complains, unless it be that the ciime of 1873, as he calls it, has worked mischief irreparable to the people of this country. In my speech in Madison Square Garden I propounded to Mr. Bryan a question of great moment, but as yet I have received no answer in Mr. Bryan'B speeches which he has made since. I made this statement then, that a debasement of the currency would necessarily work a 1 eduction in the rate of wages paid to labor. Mr. Bryan and his Populist friends never went into the question as to the effect of a debase ment of the crrrency on the condition of the workingmen, because they never can. Wages is fixed by a law that is as immutable as the ages. An infallible test of prosperity is the rate of wages paid to labor, and 1 will support any man who will raise the rate of wages, no matter by what political name. I believe in high wages, because they mean general prosperity. "I confess I do not know what the crime of '7M was, and I have some sus picion that Mr. Bryan does not. The question is not a change in the stand ard of values to apply to future con tracts; that would not do much harm. It Is a question of changing the stand ard of value applicable to existing con tracts which would accomplish the rob bery of the creditor class. The fraud which is being attempted will fall with the heaviest hand upon the laborer and producer, who are always creditors. "Who has ever heard that money was scarce when confidence abounded, when credit was sound, and when men trust ed in the honesty of each other? The stock argument of Mr. Bryan and the Populists is the Influence of England on this country. This whole statement about England and English domination of our monetary system is absurd. I would not be afraid of this money pow er which they talk so much about if I was able to discover it. I would like to become a money power myself. The only money power I have seen Is where a pair of brawny hands were at work making something useful for the fam ily of mankind. I never heard that England was trembling because of fear that we would go to a silver standard. If she is trembling it is with merriment over the idea that her foreign trade would be ruined by the United States adopting the free coinage of silver, when she accomplished the commercial conquest of the world by the use of better money. "Civilization Is not riot and revolu tion, and mutual co-operation and as sistance is not war. Each man must decide this question in his own way." "Forewarned is forearmed," he hap pened to say.

The two delega tions filed into the yard together, and before either of their spokesmen had said a Word the rain began to fall. In tently a thousand umbrelles were lifted. The spokesman for the McKeesport peo ple tried to speak, but only said a few words. Then there was a lull, and the spokes man for the railroad men made a brief speech. When Mr. Church had finished the rain was coming down in torrents, and it was determined to go to the Taber nacle. The crowd marched there, and when Major McKinley arrived greeted him with vociferous applause. He ex pressed his regret that the inclement weather had divided this great delega tion, but added that he was sure that rain would not divide them on the 3d day of November. This was greeted with applause and cries of "No, you bet it won't." The Major went on to speak of the visit he made to McKeesport two years ago, at the celebration of its one hun dredth anniversary, and the great pro gress it had made. He added: "I did not find everybody so well em ployed then as they had been during the previous two years, but I found great industries giving employment to thou sands of workingmen which had been built up under the Republican policy that had had uninterrupted sway for more than a third of a century. (Great applause.) I was glad to note, among other things in connection with that city, the establishment of a tin-plate works, one of the first, if not the first, ever established in the United States, giving employment to hundreds of men and of hundreds of more in other parts of the country. "I am also glad to meet so many of the men employed In the general offices of the Pennsylvania line here at my home, for I have long known much of their efficiency and fidelity. (Applause.) I do not think that there ever was a time in the history of our country when so many men were interested in the right settlement of public questions as this year, and no class of our people are so much interested in their righteous settlement as the men who work for wages and salaries. (Great applause.) "It has pleased me very much to ob serve that all along the lines of the rail ways of this country the employes are organizing, and I thank them for It. (Applause and cries of "We don't want thanks.") But I want to give you one piece of advice: Do not use these great organizations to coerce your employers to vote the same ticket as you do. (Tre mendous applause and laughter lasting for several minutes.) "Whenever the prosperity of this country is blighted, the railroads of the country are the first to feel it. (Cries of "That's right!" If products are not carried by railroad transportation, there is no employment for the operatives on railroad lines. We must seek first to in crease trade at home, and gradually so Improve our merchant marine as to give us greater advantages in the carrying on the high seas. We will neglect neither, but by a wise protective tariff and reciprocity systems increase both." (Great cheering.) Major McKinley spoke at some length of the enormous development of rail roads in the United States during the past three decades, their traffic, etc., nuslin Underwear At Sacrifice Sale Prices.
