Addressed, by Col. Bryan
Boehester, N. T.
Another Audience Waits Two
Hours For His Coming.
Rochester, N. Y., Oct. 20. William J.
Bryan reached this city at 9:15 last
night and made two speeches here. The
first of these was made from a balcony
in front of the Powers House and the
second in Fitzhugh. hail. Preceding the
speeches there was a street parade from
the New York Central station to the
center of the city and it waa one of the
most elaborate sea well as one of the
most enthusiastic demonstrations that
have yet been made in honor of the
Democratic candidate. He was escorted
by bands and marching clubs and the
broad streets of the city were so crowd
ed with people that it was extremely
difficult for the police to force a way for
Mr. Bryan's carriage was drawn by
four horses. Once during the march the
leading span of horses took fright at the
fireworks and turned quickly. It look
ed for a moment as if they would upset
the vehicle. The frightened animals
were however, quickly caught by a doz
en members of the nearest marching
club and again turned in the right di
rection. Mr. Bryan retained his seat
in the carriage and did not show fright.
Mr. Bryan addressed a sea of human
beings in his opening meeting. They re
ceived him with loud cheers and listen
ed as well as such a multitude could for
about 20 minutes, during which time Mr.
Rryan presented the issues of the cam
paign. It was 10 o'clock before he
reached Fitzhugh hall. There he met a
densely packed audience which had
waited two hours for his coming. He
was received with prolonged cheers and
received close attention and much ap
plause from start to finish.
The speech was a presentation of the
questions of the campaign and Mr. Bry
an said he believed that when these
questions were as well understood in the
east as they are in the west the Demo
cratic contention would ba as popular
here as there.
Mr. Bryan spoke for an hour and
twenty-five minutes, concluding his
speech at 11:30 o'clock. The entire audi
ence remained until the end.
Mr. Bryan yesterday experienced his
second encounter of the campaign with
college students. It occurred at Ithaca,
and the students were from Cornell uni
versity. The incident was not so excit
ing as that at Ann Arbor, Mich., for the
reason that the young men were not so
persistent and did not work in such un
ison, but there was one feature of inter
est which was not noticeable at Ann
Arbor. This was the participation of
young women in the affair.
A hundred or more members of the
opposite sex were stationed at windows
of the high school, just back and over
the stage from which Mr. Bryan spoke,
and they disturbed the proceedings to
as great an extent as they could by
lowering posters bearing pictures of
President McKinley so as to attract the
attention of the crowd. The young men
who were below responded to this signal
with cries and yells, and they also asked
numerous questions while the speech
was in progress. Evidently, too, a quite
large per cent, of the students were in
sympathy with Mr. Bryan, and some of
them shouted lustily for him when his
replies to the questions of their fellows
were especially to their liking. Mr.
Bryan was generally voted to have met
the occasion successfully and that he did
so was evidenced by the fact that the
interruptions grew fewer and farther
apart as the speech proceeded and at
last ceased altogether.
The day was rendered interesting by
a spirited meeting at Auburn, the home
during his lifetime of Secretary Seward,
and by Mr. Bryan's pointed reference in
his speech there to the manager of an
important manufacturing enterprise lo
cated at that point, which he evidently
intended should have greater than local
application. Speeches were also made
during the day at Courtlandt and Bing
hamton and at several other smaller
points. The day's work closed with a
meeting at Rochester late last night.
The metings of the day were generally
attended and those at Ithaca and Bing
hamton were especialy large. Probabiy
the Binghamton meeting was the moat
enthusiastic meeting of the day. In all
instances except at the beginning of the
Ithaca meeting close attention was given
to the speeches.
Mr. Bryan's speech at Cortlandt was
addressed almost wholly to the farmers
and he expressed the opinion that one
person out of a hundred was benefited
by Republican policies. He pleaded to
his auditors to throw off the yoke of
partisanship and assert their" indepen
dence. He declared that the farmers were
every year owing more and owning less
of the wealth they create.
At Binghamton where Mr. Bryan had
the largest and most enthusiastic
audience of the day he took especial
notice of the fact that some of the man
ufacturing plants of that town were
closed, saying:
"It is strange to me that it is neces
sary for you people to have an empty
and silent tannery and match factory
in a town to know what a trust means
and without doubt it seems that any
man with power to think ought to know
that industrial monopoly means " the
closing of factories, the throwing of
men out of employment and the making
of slaves out of those who are employed."
In response to a question during the
Binghamton speech he announced him
self as favorable to the election of United
States senators by direct vote of the
people and in this connection made the
following reference to Senator1 Depew:
"I think if there is any state in the union
that needs that sort of privilege it is
New York. When John Quincy Adams
became a member of congress he sold
all the stock he had in the national bank
of that day because he said he did not
believe that a man in congress ought to
be interested in legislation. I wish you
would read that to Chauncey M. Depew
and let him resign his position as presi
dent of a railroad or senator of the
United States. How do you expect that
a man will decide on the people's side
in a case where he is interested on the
other side? Is there any man in this
audience who would try a case before a
juryman who had an interest in the re
sult of the case? Then why is it that you
fill your legislatures with men who are
interested in legislation, men who repre
sent themselves and their big corpora
tions instead of tax payers?"
Opened by Mr. Bryan With a Speech
at Elmira.
Elmira, N. Y., Oct. 20. Mr. Bryan be
gan the speech making of the third day
of his New York tour at Elmira at 9
o'clock today. He spoke from a stand
erected in Wisner park and was greeted
by a large audience. Mr. Bryan said:
"I am glad I live in a country where
no man can b elected unless the people
want that policy enforced, for up to this
time theRepublieans have not yet denied
our right to attend to our business, al
though they deny the Filipino the right
to attend to his business."
Mr. Br van then spoke of the trusts,
saying that the Republicans were all ap
parently afflicted with far sightedness.
Even away up in Minnesota the Repub
licans seemed to know all about the ice
trust, whose operations were confined
entirely to New York and did not affect
them, but nothing about the salt trust,
the lumber trust, the sugar trust and
the numerous other trusts which affect
ed their interests directly. Indeed, he
said, the Republicans were apparently
more worried lest the trust3 should all
not get their share than they were con
cerning the fate of the people at large,
but, he continued, the Republican in
terest In the . ice trust was entirely in
consistent, for had not Senator Hanna,
the Republican party, said there were
no trusts? In view of the general Re
publican knowledge concerning trusts
and Mr. Hanna'a declaration, Mr. Bryan
asserted that he had never known a man
whose word "amounted to so littleamong
his friends as did Mr. Hanna's."
"If there is an ice trust," he continued,
"then Hanna'a word can not be ac
cepted." Discussing the Republican attitude on
trusts Mr. Bryan declared that the Re
publicans were inconsistent and that
they had no remedy for trusts. He said:
"They opened the session by creating a
money trust and they closed it by prac
ticing fraud in their pretended effort to
stop other trusts. The amendment to
the constitution offered by them was
not necessary and its purpose was not to
give congress power needed. It was to
take away from the states the power
they have., so that if the Republicans
control the government, the state will
be powerless to protect itself against a
private monopoly. That was the pur
pose of that amendment and when it
was defeated the Republicans confessed
we did not need it, because they then
brought in a bill which. thy said waa
intended to protect the people from
private monopoly, a bill brought in after
the amendment was defeated, showing
that they did cot need the amendment
and all the Democrats voted for the bill.
I believe there was scarcely an opposi
tion vote in the house, but when It went
to the senate and the Democrats de
manded that it be passed at once, the
Republicans sent it to the judiciary com
mittee and there it Bleeps today."
Mr. Bryan then discussed the ques
tions of imperialism and the Increase of
the army, asserting that what had been
done in Porto Rico was the best indi
cation as to what would be done in oth
er newly acquired islands. Let those
who had doubts as to the policy to be
pursued read what Governor Pattison
had to say concerning the administra
tion of Porto Rican affairs. According
to that report, "states with more than
twice the population of Porto Rico pay
their governors less than half the sal
ary paid to the governor of that island."
"We sent the carpetbaggers there," he
said, "and the Porto Ricans have to en
dure them."
In considering the Philippine question,
Mr. Bryan warned his hearers against
the complications it would involve us in.
Among rUier things in this connection
he said:
"Whenever we complain of these doc
trines, some Republican tries to hide be
hind the amendments in the southern
states and says: 'What about North
Carolina?" If you are worried about
North Carolina, why don't you spend
your time trying to remedy that trou
ble instead of trying to bring in another
race question as big as that we now
have to solve."
Mr. Bryan said that the money which
was being expended in the Philippines
could be much more profitably utilized
in developing the resources of the Uni
ted States. He suggested as one means
for utilizing of the money the construc
tion of reservoirs in the semi-arid re
gions of the west for the holding of sur
plus water, which would toe said, ma
terially increase the agricultural area
of that section and add to the wealth
of the country at large.
"But," he added, "the Republicans
would rather waste blood than have wa
ter." Corning, N. Y., Oct. 20. Mr. Bryan

platform of his car. The railroad yards

Geronlmo, the Well-Known Bad Indian.
The above Is a good picture of old Geronimo, some of whose followers will
dance at the Auditorium on Thursday, October 25. Geronimo has made more
trouble for the United States army and together with his predecessor, Ghu,
committed more murders and destroyed more property in Arizona and New
Mexico than any other two chiefs In the history of the country.
In 1878 Major T. J. Anderson was traveling by stage from Santa Fe, N. M.,
to El Paso, and the stage passed Jarnado Del Muerto (the journey of death),
a barren desert some ninety miles in extent with but one place where water
could be procured. This was at Martin's well, a place in about the middle
of the desert. This point was also the stage station and was occupied by a
family, a sheep herder or two and the man In charge of the stage horses. The
party, which included some prominent Santa Fe officials at that time, took
dinner at the station, and with a fresh team of four fine horses started for what
is now known as Rincon on the Santa Fe, at the south end of the Jarnado.
When a few miles out from the station one of the party looked back and saw
the stage station and ranch houSe inflames, and the passengers, some nine or
ten in number, wanted to return, but the stage driver, who knew the condi
tions, whipped his horses into a dead run and got out of sight of the station
as quickly as possible. He said the Apache Indians, who were known to be
on the war path, were burning the ranch and murdering the occupants.
The passengers did not feel safe until they had left the ranch many miles
in the rear. On the return trip the truth was learned. Geronimo with his band
of murderers had left the Sanandres reservation, and crossing the Jarnado, had
murdered every soul at the well, crossed the Rio Grande, taking refuge in the
Magellan mountains, 17a miles from their starting point.
Scarcely a ranchman escaped in the entire distance. The army drove them
out of the United States, and they took refuge in the almost inaccessible Sierra
Madras mountains of Mexico. It cost many lives and more than a million in
money to capture Geronimo and his murderous band of Apaches, which was
finally accomplished by General Crook.
After his capture, Geronimo was sentenced with his followers to thej Dry
Tortugas, off the coast of Florida, where they remained until a few years ago,
when they were sent to the Comanche Indian reservation in the southwest
corner of Oklahoma.
were well filled and the national can
didate was warmly received. He declar
ed that the Republican party was put
ting its plea this year on the lowest
plane that a political campaign had ever
been made upon. In support of this
statement, he said they were all things
to all men; they were making specious
pleas to all classes and were meeting no
arguments. He discussed the army and
territorial expansion in practically the
same terms as in previous speeches.
Wrhile Mr. Bryan was talking of the
trusts, some one asked about the silver
trust. Mr. Bryan replied:
"There is no silver trust, but If there
were and it would contribute enough to
the Republican campaign fund the Re
publican party would be for silver.'
Col. Bryan Sends 16 to 1 to the
Bear. ;
In a Letter Accepting Lincoln
ltepublican Nomination.
Rochester, N. Y., Oct. 20. The follow
ing letter accepting the nomination of
the Silver Republicans waa mailed to
day by Mr. Bryan:
Samuel W. Hopkins, chairman and
others, members of the notification com
mittee, of the Silver Lincoln Republican
Gentlemen: I am in receipt of your
letter formally notifying me of my nom
ination for the presidency by the Silver
Lincoln Republican national convention
held at Kansas City, July 4, last. In
accepting the nomination I beg to ex
press my hearty appreciation of the
support given our ticket by the mem
bers of your party in the campaign of
1S96, and of the fidelity shown by them
during the four years which have snce
elapsed. The evidence of confidence and
good will manifested anew at the last
national convention places me under re
newed obligations. There is a consist
ency about the human mind which leads
an individual to apply old principles to
new conditions and I was therefore not
surprised to find that those who left the
Republican party in 1896 on the money
question are now opposed to it on the
trust question, which has increased in
importance since 1896, and upon mili
tarism and imperialism, the' new ques
tions which the Republican party has
forced upon the public within the last
two years. Your platform, of which you
enclose a copy in its declaration is so
similar to the Democratic platform
adopted at Kansas City that it is not
necessary for me to take up the plank3
in detail. I enclose the following docu
ments and make them a part of this let
ter: First My speech at Indianapolis, in
reply to the Democratic notification
committee, dealing with imperialism,
militarism and the resolution express
ing sympathy for the Boers.
Second My letter formally accepting
the Democratic nomination, covering
other planks of the platform.
Third My speech accepting the Popu
list nomination, dealing with those is
sues upon which the Democrats and
Populists occupy common grounds.
Fourth My speech delivered at St.
Louis the 15th of September, on the
trust question.
These documents have already been
widely published in the press of the
country and the members of your party
are fully informed in regard to my
views on the questions covered.
In 1896, the money question was the
question of paramount importance, but
the Republican party by its disregard
of the principles of our republic and by
its advocacy of policies repugnant to
the doctrine of self-government, has left
us no choice but to summon all lovers o
the Declaration of Independence to the
defense of that sacred document and
the constitution framed in accordance
with it.
In your letter you quote several ap
propriate extracts from Lincoln's speech
es. I find in a speech by Lincoln In
1858 a defense of the Declaration of In
dependence, accompanied by a fervent
and patriotic appeal to his countrymen
not to abandon the principles therein
enunciated. It is so applicable to the
present time and so in harmony with
the references you have made to Lin
coln's words that 1 quote the following
extract: "Now, my countrymen, if you
have been taught doctrines conflicting
with the great landmarks of the Decla
ration of Independence; if you have lis
tened to suggestions which would take
away from its grandeur and mutilate the
fair symmitery of its proportions; if you
have been inclined to believe that all
men are not created equal in those in
alienable rights enumerated by our chart
of liberty, let me entreat you to come
back. Return to the fountain whose wa
ters spring close by the blood of the
revolution. Think nothing of me; take
no thought for the political fate of any
man whomsoever, but come to back to
the truths that are in the Declaration
of Independence. You may do anything
with me you choose, if you will but heed
these sacred principles. You may not
only defeat me for the senate, but you
may take me and put me to deaUi. While
pretending no indifference to earthly
honors, I do claim to be actuated in this
contest by something higher than an
anxiety for office. I charge you to drop
every paltry and insignificant thought
for any man's success. It is nothing. I
am nothing; Judge Douglas is nothing.
But don't destroy that immortal emblem
of humanity the Declaration of Ameri
can Independence."
How harsh the contrast between the
lofty sentiments expressed by Lincoln and
the sordid, mercenary appeal now made
to the people of the Republican party!
How great the chasm between the
statesmanship which would sacrifice life
itself in defense of that immortal docu
ment which had been the model of re
publics ever since it was promulgated,
and the commercialism which would
sacrifice every noble and holy purpose in
pursuit of new markets and would en
dorse the doctrine that trade can be pur
chased with human blood a doctrine
advanced by those who want to give
syndicates a chance to exploit distant
In response to the hope which you ex
press, permit me to assure you that any
political obligations are due entirely to
the plain people, who ask no special
privileges at the hands of the govern
ment, but demand only equality of rights
and an opportunity to enjoy life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness under the
flag of a republic. These people, the na
tion's wealth producers in time of peace
and the nation's warriors in time of
war, have already done for me more
than I can ever repay. Whether I am
elected or not, it shall be my ambition
to protect their rights and advance their
interests by every mean within my
power. Very truly yours.
Populist State Chairman An
nounces His Discovery.
Finds a Letter Bearing on the
Trust Question.
The Kansas Populist committee
claims to have discovered absolute proof
that the managers and promoters of the
Republican campaign in nation and
state are in a conspiracy to defend and
propagate the evil of trusts.
"As proof of this," said Chairman
Ridgley, "I cite the fact that the Re
publican national committee is distri
buting campaign literature distinctive
ly written as a defense of these monopo
lies and their methods I submit here
with a letter by the National Publishing
company, who are publishing a pamph
let defending the trusts. These publish
ers have arranged with the national Re
publican committee to distribute their
pamphlet. In proof of this, I submit
here a copy of a letter which was sent
to a certain great corporation, soliciting
funds to pay for their pamphlet which
they state is, by agreement, to be dis
tributed by the national Republican
committee. Their letter dated Septem
ber 29, 1900, reads as follows:
September 29, 1900.
"Dear Sir: Referring to our several
letters of recent date regarding 'The
Other Side,' we found many of the large
industrials did not care to distribute the
book directly but were anxious' to sup
port the work. To overcome this diffi
culty we arranged with the Republican
national committeetohave it distribute
the books in such manner-and in such
places as to insure the best results be
ing accomplished. Used in this way the
books cost $250 per thousand.
"We now ask your co-operation in the
movement to the extent of subscribing
for a few thousand copies to be used by
the committee. An acknowledgment
from the committee will be sent to you
for the number of books you contribute
Derore payment need be made.
"This matter being of the greatest Im
portance to all industrial corporations,
and the time being limited, we are
obliged to ask the favor of your prompt
response. Yours very truly,
"C. H. Nicoll, General Manager."
"In response to this letter," continues
Mr. Ridgley, "the corporation addressed
subscribed for a number of copies of the
pamphlet, the title of which is "The
Other Side." In proof of this I submit
copy of the receipt of the Republican
nationl committee, which reads as fol

"Thus we have the proof that the Re
publican national committee is using its
utmost power to defend these trust mo
nopolies. .The book referred to in ita
preface reads as follows:
" It discusses the rise and develop
ment of the trust idea out of natural
conditions that insure Its permanence
and its value as a factor in industrial
progress, and.aims to bring into stronger
light the advantages that accrue to the
public, the workingman and the investor
from this readjustment of capital.'
"One of the distinctive features of the
present campaign is the vacillating at
titude of the Republican party on this
one of the chief issues involved in the
present election that of corporation mo
nopolies, commonly termed 'trusts.'
Hanna is quoted as having recently de
clared that there are no trusts, but ad
mits that there are great monopolies.
We have no contention with Hanna or
his party as to the name they prefer to
use. The fact remains, that powerful
combines of capital operating under cor
poration charters have seized upon: and
monopolized the great instruments of
production and distribution in this na
tion to such an extent as to be able to
and they do suppress production at will

Chicago. Oct. 20. WHEAT In wheit
the selling pressure appears to have run
its course, and the market has steadied
and firmed fractionally. The better feel
ing is due to diminishing country move
ment of wheat, lighter Argentine ship
ments and reports from that country of
prospective damage to the growing crop
and estimates of reduced yield. Foreign
markets have shown uncertainty and
been Independent of markets on this side,
while there is a steady good export de
mand for wheat and fair clearances from
the seaboard. Cash wheat in northwest
is in brisk demand and the coming week
will probably show the turning point in
the visible supply figures. A large short
interest has been built up of late and
many erstwhile bulls on wheat have
grown discouraged and sold out. This
leaves the market in rather strong spec
ulative position, and with continued un
favorable advices from Argentine, liahier
farmers' deliveries, good cash demand, or
strength abroad, or any of these, there
will be a ruh to buy wheat. Shortt will
be anxious buyers and there is a smail
army of bulls who hav no wheat who. on
the first show of strength, will come Into
the market. The factors likely to depress
prices have all been exhausted now and
developments of the future hold only
promise to the believers in higher prices.
The situation in the United States is de
cidedly strong and is bound to exert itself
sooner or later. When the rush to buy
comes, the advance will not be a halting
one but will be radical and sustained.
CORN Wet weather in Iowa t help ng
to strengthen the far futures of corn, as
belief in the grading of new corn befcre
the first of the year is not general under
these conditions. Selling of October and
Novem'er by the leading local bull oper.
ators has taken the edge off of these de
liveries and October situation c'.ears, ther i
has come Into th mnrket a ffl!nir ht
once of relief and romidenc. Tlie buying
of December and Mav corn the pHt lew
days has been excellent nii May corn i.t
the relative price now ruling is regrd. 1
by many as attractive property. Ktiurrn
ous sales f cash corn for export tind
eastern distributions have been made, ai d,
with the country bare of stocks, are go
ing to eat into this season's crop t a
rate much faster than ever before known.
With fear of manipulation In October nl
Iayed, corn is likely to bull from other
causes wholly.
OATS Oats have been Btrn nd dull.
The market Is small atid feature a t w.
Some covering by smaller shorts, but
transactions riot large enough to exciio
even passing interest.
PROVISION'S Active and erratic.
Heavy manufacturers ar making a ba : t '
ground of meats for this month's deliv
ery while the outside trade has gone into
January product. Hogs are ct.ming n
freely and promise a fair winter run. On
this theory there has been some weihner of
winter deliveries on the belief of lower
hog prices Inter on. On the tber ha al
the consumption of meats and fats hs In
creased so that sttH'ks are shorn In no hc
cumiriulution at present and with u cu -tinuanee
of this demand, provision will
likely held their own and induce coveting
by the January shorts later on.
