BRYAN AT GAMTOf Makes a Short Speech at the President's Home. Canton, O., Oct. 15. There were im portant accessions to the Bryan train before it left Akron this morning. These consisted of Mayor Jones of To ledo and former Attorney General Mon pett. Both joined the party upon the in vitation of air. Bryan, and it is under etood that Mayor Jones will continue with the presidential candidate on his New York tour. Mr. Bryan spent the night on the "Rambler," his sleeping car, and he did not emerge from his stateroom for almost an hour after the train, had pulled out of the Akron sta tion at 7 o'clock. The first stopping point was Canton, the home of the Jiebraskan's rival for the presidency. This place was on the itinerary only conditionally, and when iMr. Bryan was toldrthat he could have a stop of five minutes if he so desired ihe replied simply that whether he should speak or not should depend upon whether there was a crowd at the station. Mr. Bryan had just sat down to break fast when the point was reached. As the train drew into Canton there were cheers and a goodly crowd was there to meet Mr. Bryan. He was received with cheers and made a four or five minute speech, referring pleasantly to the presi dent, and saying that if he should not be re-elected he could always be an ex president, as the "ex" was a title that once earned could always be held. Mr. Bryan said: "I beiieve that this stop is not on the programme, and I am here only for moment. You are so accustomed here to seeing presidential candidates that another candidate is no curiosity. I suppose some of you in 1896 voted for your home candidate as a mat ter of locaJ pride, but now you can say that Canton is the home of a president, and if the election goes our way it will always be the home of an ex-president, because that title 'ex' is one of those permanent titles that a man never loses.

See our North Window for further quotations. reply that one term is enough if a pres ident does well, and too much where he does not do well. You have here in your city a cannon, I believe, that was pre sented to you as a trophy of the war. It was customary in earlier days for cannon to bear mottoes, and your can non has inscribed upon it 'Mars ultima ratio regium,' which means that war is the last reason of kings. Charles Sum ner in his oration on 'The Character of Nations,' delivered at Boston, July 4, 1S44, referred to this motto and said: L.et it be no reason of this republic' "I hope that you will not merely from the possession of that cannon be led to believe that war is a thing to be de sired. It ought to be further away from a republic even than from a monarchy, because in a monarchy the government rests upon force, and has frequent occa sion to resort to force. A king is not al ways restrained by those considerations which would restrain the people of a re public. In a country like this and where justice is the rule between this gov ernment and other governments as well as between thepeople.there ought to be less necessity for war. In fact, I be lieve that if this nation will stand upon its rights and be as careful to respect the rights of other people as it is to de fend its own, there will be little use for war. If this nation will obey the com mandment, 'Thou Shalt not steal,' it will have little difficulty in enforcing that commandment in those places where this nation is a protector. The American idea of a protectorate is different from the European idea. Under a European protectorate the protector plunders the protected. According to our theory the protector has to give the strength of the protector to its ward without making the ward the victim of the protector; and so we believe in the far away Philippines that this nation can be a protector as it has been in the South. American republic and without governing the people ourselves 'We can say to the world, 'Hands off and let that republic live and work out its own destiny.' "That i? our theory and we feel that it is a significant fact th-.it the Rppub'ican party lias? planted itself upon the Euro pean doctrine that you must own a coun try in order to be of service to it at the same time that it plants itself upon the Kuropean colonial idea. You will prob ably find in your town-a few people who will support the Republican idea of the colonial policy, but I suggest that when you rind a. Republican who is willing to support the colonial idea, you ask him to show his sincerity by send a petition to the president asking him to apologize to Great -Britain for the trouble we mace her before we learned of the blessings of this colonial system, for if the Republi can party is riht today in administering colonies and taxing them without repre sentation and ov-rning them wi;huut their consent, then the color.is s were wr"n? 15 years aro when they asserted that these principles were wrong. We are in Ohio for a few days and I am glad to have a chance to present our side of thi3 question to peopie of Ohio, and I trust that when the election is held the re sults will show that even in Ohio, despite the local influences here, despite the resi dence of the president and the residence of the chairman of the Republican na tional committee, the returns will show that in the great contest between the European idea of force and the American doctrine of government by consent. Ohio will be on the side of the "United States Instead of on the side of Europe." At Mineral Point there was also a brief stop which was not on the schedule.

Makes Public Announcement in a Speech at Columbus. Columbus, O., Oct. 15. About 1,200 people attended a meeting last night at the Columbus Auditorium, addressed by Frank S. Monett, former attorney gen eral of Ohio; J. R. Sovereign, former grand master workman of the Knights of Labor, and Val Fitzpatriek.gfand vice chief of the Order of Railway Con ductors. Mr. Monett'a speech was devoted wholly to trusts and contained the first public declaration of bis intention to support Mr. Bryan. Mr. Monett review ed the prosecutions against various trusts, combinations and monopolies, which he had undertaken while attorney general of the state, saying: "It became my privilege and duty to institute upwards of twenty-four suits ......

We labored to accomplish this, as it was our duty to do. We were badgered and ob structed by Republican leaders, United States senators, political bosses and a subsidized press. One hundred and ten newspapers accepted Standard Oil money to cultivate public sentiment wrongfully in their favor and against the prosecu tors. "The monopolist sent the briber with his seductions of gold and with his prom ises of "positions and salaries and pro cured the leading governmental officials to defend them, and last, but not least, driven from pillar to post, they came in to court and with uplifted hands swore that they did not and could not answer the interrogatories of produce their books, for if they did it would subject their corporations to civil death for vio lating the law of their creation; and lastly, that it would criminate the col lege fostering, church erecting, cam paign contributing monopolists. "A like experience was encountered against the salt trust at Pomeroy, O.; the same dodge azid skulking from the avenging law was adopted there." Mr. Monett then went into the sub ject of federal legislation against trusts and discussed the Sherman anti-trust law. He dwelt especially on the "evils of combinations in restraint of trade." Referring to the decision of the su preme court sustaining the constitution ality of the Sherman law, Mr. Monett said: "This brought the trusts and monop olies to their last ditch in the contest, so far as the court and congress were concerned; so far as the legislative and the judiciary were called upon to act. All of us that had earnestly fought and contended for th!s principle felt that a great victory had been won a Republi can from Ohio had introduced the bill, a Republican house and senate had enacted it in to law, a Democratic solicitor general and an attorney general from Ohio had with reat learning and ability sustain ed the law before the United States su preme court. "Pooling of railroads and of railroad rates, joint traffic associations, the mo nopoly of the Standard Oil company, both in its producing and the progress of the raw product and distributing the refined product, should now come under the control of this legislative act, so far as it interferes with interstate com merce. "Thirteen suits had been begun, about two of them under Cleveland's adminis tration, but they were delayed awaiting the final decision as to the constitution ality of this act. "We nominated a president from Ohio who promised the people in fair phrases that he would enforce the anti-trust laws of the United States, including the Sherman anti-trust act. How has he en forced it? He went to New Jersey, the state of the trust breeding grounds, the cesspool and the spawn of all these il legal combinations, and placed at the head of the attorneys generaj's depart ment hi3 honor, John W.

The sec ond was the United States Coal Dealers' association, recorded January 18, 1893, the third one the United States versus C. and O. Fuel company, not yet decid ed. "This is the magnificent record of the present national administration and the complete nullification of the most im portant law upon the statute books up on this subject since the beginning of our government. "The trusts utterly failed in defeating the Sherman anti-trust act; they were completely routed by the Judiciary in the final test in the supreme court, and they have now begun the dangerous pol icy of paralyzing the executive arm by means that are so palpable that he who runs may read, and none but the most skeptical can fail to be convinced." In concluding Mr. Monett said: "I believe that William McKinley and John W. Griggs, his attorney and his executive officers have willfully, pur posely and knowingly paralyzed the ex ecutive arm of this government for the last four years and prevented the en forcement of the common law and stat ute law, both criminally and civilly, against these law violators. And the hour has now come, and the only time we will have for the next four years, as voters, to legally and constitutionally smite them for this hypocrisy, to resent this violation of officials duty, and we should vote against every elector that is pledged on the Republican ticket to per petuate this great wrong in our repub lic. "William J. Bryan may not accomp lish all that we expect or all that we hope for in this behalf, but I believe him to be thoroughly honest, sincere and a determined man, and while I do not agree with him in all that he advocates, yet I am forctd to take one side or the other on this great question, which for the masses is the paramount issue, and in the name of patriotism and for the sake of our republic and to prevent the threatened danger that Senator John Sherman and the other Nestors in the councils' of our government have so graphically prophesied and which I firmly believe will come to pass if not checked, I propose to cast my vote for that fearless, upright champion of the people, William J. Bryan." KAISER'S MOTHER. Bulletins Begin to Issue Regarding Her Helth. Homburg, Oct. 15.
