HER VOICE FOR WEAVER,
Miss Ella Knowles' Address to a Great Crowd at the Audi torium. The Populist Candidate for Attor ney General on the Cam paign Issues. She Talks for One Hour and Fifty-five Mimutes Wlthout Any Signs of Exhaustion. Without any music but that of the voice of the only woman ever honored by a nom ination to a high state office, the call for a people's party meeting at the auditorium last evening filled every seat in that great building. The ladies were very nearly in a majority, but the men who were there were just as enthusiastio in their reception of Ella L. Knowles, who says she is going to be the next attorney-general of Montana if she gets the most votes on Tuesday next. The stage was prettily set in potted plants and pictures of Weaver and Field and Miss Knowles were prominently displayed. Rob ert Teeples called the meeting to order, and without any formality of a presiding omficer got down to business by introducing E. A. Carleton, who spoke for fifteen minutes. Among other things he said that when he was a boy the issue on which the republi can party appealed to the voters was that bloody shirt, which they waved and waved until all the color was out of it. Since then it had been the tariff. Strike from the eastern edge of the map of the United States a small section of country and where would the McKinley bill be. The greatest republican the country ever produced, who was downed at Mminneapolis by an ungrate ful party, had said that that bill did not make a market for another bushel of corn or a barrel of pork. He had had reciprocity fastened to the tariff bill as its only re deeming feature. and the leaders at Minne apolis had sought even to rob him of the credit of that performance and appropriate it to Harrison. On the financial question he said that if either Harrison or Cleveland were present and were asked if they would sign a free coinage bill, they would be dumb as oysters. Weaver was the only candidate who would say that he would sign such a bill. He was surprised that at the democratic meeting at the opera house 'Veaver had been attacked as the exponent of fiat money, when the democratic plat form contained a plank which called for the repeal of the tax on state banks. That must have gotten into the democratic plat form on the assumption that the rank and file of the democratic party could neither read nor write. [Applause and laughter.J There never was a time when a vote for Weaver would count as much as now. The silver states would hold the balance of power and could keep any candidate from being elected until he pledged himself to sign a free coinage bill. As Miss Knowles rose and walked to the front of the stage the audience gave vent to a mighty cheer. She spoke in a clear, strong vocoe that was heard all over the auditorium, and talked for exactly one hour and fifty-five minutes without any ap parent sign of exhaustion. Before procee2d ing to argue the general questions of the campaign she said she wished to speak a word in her own behalf, a thing very natu ral with politicians. [Laughter.] "if any one has any doubt of my being eligible to the position," she continuea, "I wish to state the opinion of the attorney general of the United States to Attorney Herbert, of Deer Lodge. It is in effect that if I receive a plurality of the votes of this state, I can be inducted into office. Attorney General Miller adds: 'All Miss Knowles has to do is to look after the votes.' It is not neces sary to tell this audience that I have been looking after the votes." [Applause.] The people had been told. Mies Knowles stated, that the free coinage of silver was not to be an issue in this campaign. It had been her experience that just before every election the tariff was presented as an Is ene; after election it was noticeable that party lines disappeared, and some of the democrats who went to contrrees voted for protection, and some republicans for low tariff, or no tariff at all, and their constit uents justifed them so long as they acted for the Interest of the section the y re, re aented. 'I he fact was the issue was raised to divide the parties. "The people's palty says the. e are other issues which are para mount to the tariff," std the speaker, "and that one of these is the free coinage of silver. [Applause.] Certainly no is.nu as to tbls great principle is raised by the plat for m of the two old parties. The claims of the stock growing and silver producing states were not recognized by the high-sounding words and rolling phrases on finance and bi-ruetal ism." Miss Knowles then read the silver planks in the platforms of the democratic and republican conventions, and declared that they were exactly alike and that they must be labelled to tll which was which. -ho then read the plank of the people's party platform, demanding "the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver on the legal basis of sixteen to one." "If you want free coinage," she said, "you have no chrate but to vote for the only tarty that his a free coinage plank. tAp plause.] The question la one beyond party lines. It is one of progress, of great na lines. It in one of prograess, of great na tional benefit, of great public weal." lie fore 1d73 bshe said, when silver was denion etized, n matter what the prop.,rtion of the two metals,. silver was never depr eciated over three per cent, and much of the tune was at a premium above gold. and this de spite the fact that England adopted a single gold standard in 1860. This, Mise Knowles claimed, conclusively proved that the United States, by proper legislation, could control the si!ver markets of the world. [Applauee.] She spoke of the de preciation of the white metal since 173, nld speaking of the drop from $1.2. to M2 cents an ounce since the vassage of the bill by the Reed congress, and the recent reaction to C5 cents, she declared that the late advance was the result of an airangement by which it was hoped to catch the silver vote of the great northwest. LApplause. J This coun try, which produced 50 per cent of the sal ver output of the world, was debarred from using it, while foreign powrs which pro duoed none, or very little, set the prisei on the American article. lngland could buy eleven ounces of Amuiericaui ilver for $:, and coin it into sixty-six English ehil lings, worth $16;. Deducting the cost of transportation arid rintage, the rofit made on every ounce of Moutana silver was 60 to 65 cents. Add that to the present price of Montana s.ivr and it would mean the starting up of 10.0 Ijl) ines, new life in every channel of trade. and Increased waies to workingrniu. I Applaausj. Referring to the demlloletization of silver by a repubica.n cnugrcn in 1h7;1, hliss Knowles said that both the old parties had been in power since that time. and if both realized the great wrong perpetrated on the American people, why had they not, at the first opportunity, in justice to that people, righted that wrou? I Applause. J "1 he republican partv say they are tor free eoii ade.." continued Miss Knowles. " he democratic pauty say the same. The ora tors of the republican party in the east tell the people that if lenijamin lierrison is elected a free coinage bill will never come out or the White house alive. The demo cratic orators tell the people that if (rover ('leveland is elected a free colange bill will never come out of the White house alive. In the west they are telling a different story slaughter,] and the two planks are skill fully planned to mean one thlug in the east and another thing west. [Applause.] If the democrats or the republicans do not la is a free coinege law. or if the people's tarty do not secure the Dalance of mower to compel such a thing, there will not be a democrat or a republican west of the bliss Ilsipti in a few years, for they will be starved into the people's party." [Laugh ter and applause.] Miss Knowles spoke of the increase of the wealth in this country since the war and the accumulation of the bulk of it in the hands of the few through special legis lation. This special legislation, she aaid, the people's party would correct. It would increase the cionulting medium to $50 per capita by the free coinage of silver, and if that would not do it would leane green backs based on the credit of the govern ment. (Applause.] "It in this election." she said farther on, "the votes of the sil. ver.states are against the principles of free silver, it will. and justly, go out to the world that the mining men of the northwest are opposed to it, and the chance for bone f.linl legislation will have gone by." "A prominent speaker of the republican party devoted an hour and a half of the two hours he talked to proving that the people's party would not be in it," said Miss Knowles in conclusion. "You want to put it down in your mental note book that the third party is strictly in it." [Ap plaunse]. JOTTINGS ABOUT TOWN. The prohibitionists will have a meeting at G. A. It. hall to-night.
