Ills speech follows: jj "1 proposo to bu limit certain proposition f which arc so axlomnt 1c that they cannot bo con- if trovortcd, although tltcro nro many people who ;4 dispute them. In tho first place, as tho produc- IV tlcrti of vvcnlth comes boforo lis dlslrlbu- A lion, tho prosperity of u nation must bo I derived primarily from Its woalth producers. .a This truth Is so nxlomatlo that elaboration K would bo unnecessary but for tho fact that thore "i ore many people who Imnglno that tho pros- I pcrlly of a nation conical down to tho masses frorti tho few who gr'ncinlly seek, and too often, sccuro, special lo.isldcrivtlou at the hands of legislators. Within tho last. 1 year 1 hnvo had occasion lo read a pamphlet f written by n .dlsriigulshed Now York banker, i nnd In that pamphlet I fount tho assertion that j 'i tho prosperity of tho furiiors nnd laborers I ? depends upon tho prosperity of tho busl- j t ness men.

"As ii lawyer I belong lo onu of tho non- j producing classes. Lawyers don't produco II wealth, hut n lavryor certnlnly takes a I? narrow view of his own interests If ho docs not roallro that his wclfaro depends 'j upon tho welfare of the great massos , of tho pcoplo. nnd unless that law- f yer Is counsel for somo (treat trust . nnd corporation ho Is Interested In all thoso things which tend to tho general welfaro of tho J people, becniiBO a lawyer con mnko moro money I unions thoso wno aro doing well than oraone people who are not financially blossod. And I what Is truo of tho lawyer is truo of tho ,8 ploetilau. Ho not only desires to hnvo patients, 8 butho wants patients who can pay. So also la I it wth merchants anil w lib tho trailing clashes. fi They depend for Ihclr support on tho creat 9 wealth-producing professions. Even tho work I of tho, minister can bo carried on hotter among fi pcoplo ,vi bo are prosperous than nmonp; thoso ' 1 whoarchuiurry and destitute. I Not only must any real prosperity begin with thoso who toll, but tho nation's progress toward a higher civilization must be measured by the progress made by tbo producing classes. Under acvorr form of government It has ticcn posslolo to point to n few persons posses:cd of . ineUns and of rcltiieinenl, but it Is tho nverggW'protrress, not the proirrcss of tho few, ; that must always bo considered. Tho well to I do uro shortsighted Indeed if they imagine that they cn.n,.epnrato themselves from tbo grnit mass of the people with whom they live. Tho Creator has so tied us together that it is impos- ; ilbToToF hnoto Imildsurolyorpermancntly upon tho ftfrttmes of others. Mental discipline, moral training, habits of industry and economy, all havo their part in improving the general condi tion of.otir people, and yet the tnlliivnco of legls- , J Intion must not be overlooked under uny system , $ of government, and under any kind of legisia- Hon there will bo individual differences, due to t causvn entirely boond tho sphere of legislation. , j "lint it has been truo In the past, ami Is truo I j to-(lny. that the Instrumentalities of goiern- I ment-nre often cmplojcd to give some peoplo J an advantage ocr tho rest. Tbc object of ,1 universal eutlrage Is to enable each Individ- j ual to protect himself from injury at the av hnnds-f'Otbfcrs; and an lnlolllgont 'exercise of 'i 'thp right olsufrragols the only memsby which ; political evils can bo remedied and political V wrongs redressed. Those who aro numerically too we ik or naturally too indifferent lo secure a t remedy through tho bullot aro impotent to so ' cure relief in any other way. ? "Without attempting to enter into details I Ir BUggist that under the very best conditions that 1 could exist u majority of the people would bo J too busy attending to their overy-day nf. fairs, cither to hang about legislative I halls themselves or send representatives, , except their elected ones, to look .ifier their in i torest In legielailvo matters.

No part nf that pomnrkablrt speech Is morn worthi ly serious consideration thin tho parltowhi.li I have Just referred.

I "The writ of Injunction Is generally sought by employers, who, after combining among themselves, endemor to preiont cooperation among their employees. Tho main purpoe of the writ of injunction In such cases Is to avoid tilal by jury. Without entering upon nnlscus nlon of t be Biibjcct, I desire tosuggest I lint t rial bv Jurr Is more important to the American peonlo to-day than It eler was belnro in tho nation's history. It was originally Intended asn protec tion agilnit roynll,and It Is to day the main protection which the people have against plutoc racy, which is In this country what royalty is under a mon irrhical form of government." . Mr. llryan i-oncludod bis speech by rev lowing his conduct In thulatornmpilgn.sajing: "l was subjected to criticism liocause I urged employees to ocreio the right .given tliem under the Australian ballot, eien though In bo doing they voted Contrary to tho olors I worn during tho campaign. I believe my binguago In substance was that they should wo T Republican bulges if thev were re quired to du so, man h In Itcpiibllcan parades If It whs tiecesiiiry. nnd even contribute to Repub lican campaign funds If thoy were compelled to do so; and that, after hiving done nil thoso things, thoy should vote according to conscience and Judgment. , " And let mo snv here, my friends, that in ad- , : vlslnc im n to votoiiceordlng to thelrconselenco and their Judgment I did not mean to confine it lo men who would in so doing vote our wny.

Comtdornblo nnlmn tlon It being exhibited by both sldos, but the hurrah that has been mado by tho silver pross throughout tho country nbout tho harmony of tho triangular silver convention Is tho most groundless fako that has been contributed by Iho siller clement In this Htnto slnco llryan commenced his rcmnrknblo crusade. Their "promotion" cmumlltco has teen to it that tho most exaggerated statements of tho meeting Vtoio sent out, nnd careful censorship was em ployed to suppress tho details Unit would to veal tho very ov'dont oppoilllon to tho fusion arrangements. Tho convention of tho thrco silver pnrtlos was creditable enough, but tho enthusiasm nnd ntlondnticu wero not to bo compared to tho con vention of last yoar. when moro than dotiblo Iho number wero nt Lincoln, Tho triangular con vention report prepared for tho sllvor press rant out tho most glowing descriptions con cerning tho harmony nnd enso with which tbo conventions got together In tho Interest of sil ver, but tho facts nro that It was tho hardest work tho silver leaders of tho State havo had for years to keep tho varlod interests together, and tlino and tlmo again motions wero made in each of tho thrco bodies to proceed to Iho nomi nation of a candldnlu of Its own peculiar faith, regardless of tho Interests of silver and tho do slros of tho other conventions, As evidence of tho hnrd work It was to ao conipllsh fusion tho fact may bo cited that W. J. llryan, Senator Allen. (Iciv. Holcumb, Jerry Simpson, Senator Teller, (Jon. Wenicr, Con gressman Hartmnn of Montana, and Cyclono Davis of Texas, together with moru than ono thousand prominent sllicr men from all parts of tbo Klutc, labored for moru than twcntv-four i consccutlvo hours to effect tho amalgamation. ' When it was finally ace mplishud, Mr. Ilrynn declared thnt ho wus moru exhausted than bo had been at any timo since tho sllvor cumpnlgn was begun a yenr ago. Ho bad scarcely had tlmo to cat n meal nud had not closed his eyes. This wus truo not only of tho leaders of this and other States who were managing tho fusion delegates, but alro of nearly tho wholo convention. Krom tho tlmo tho three conven tions convened, Wednosday at noon, they wero not permitted to take a recess of more thun ono hour until acandldatohad been named. Tbo leaders had dono much shrewd planning in advance. They realized better than tho opposltloiuho nnluro of tho undertaking boforo I them In tbo first place tlicro was plain evl- deuce of indcpcnncncoon tho part of tho dele- ' gates to all tho conventions. Tho BDlrll that I kept Iho men of different political funks In tho silver ranks last jenr was warning this year. The Populists wero clamoring for the nominee. They pointed to tho great number of Dc mo crats who iiao been put in olllco In tho State by Populist votes, und to tho manner in which they huro boosted lliyan and other silver lenders to the great co of their parts organi zation. This, too, when they outnumber tho Democrats ihreo to ono In Nebraska. Tho Democrat declared that thu Populists could accomplish nothing without their support, nnd behind both political giaute tbo Utile band of silver Hcpublieaus raised their weak voices in protest, und Insisted tbut they should havo at least a crumb, which was mote than they had ever got before. Thu conferunco committee of tbo loading sil ver men at this citj two weeks before the con vention prepared a plan to silcncn tho inde pendent lellown in all parties. They tause-d to bo circulated reports to Iho effect that mem bers of tho ltepublicau National C juiiiiitteo, in conjunction with the Nulionul Committee of tho .National Democratic party, had conio to the mute with unlimited capital, furiiichtd by i the opponents of bimetallism, and were quietly putting it wticro It would du the most work in preventing harmony und ciontuul fusion in thu ri.uto triangular cuuientiuu. They openly do- I clared lhal benatur John M. Thurston and tho Hon. J. Sterling Morion were travelling in the State lo promote this distribution of lunds to the confusion of tho silver men. They announced that the plan of tho opposi tion was to buy Just a few delegates In each county and pledge them to oppose, by ono menus or another, any plan lo fuse. Tbo i silver leaders followed this up by asserting llmt I any delegate who raised his voice against tho triangular convention nomlncos, for whatever alleged purpo-e, would piovu himself cine of the tools purchusod with thu fundd of the oppo sition. When tho delegates commenced to nrrlvo In tho capital they were met by well selcned reception committees, consisting mostly uf State olllciuls and their assistants. 'I he duty of these committees win lo slay with Ihclr del egates, o talk to them of tho lu-iou plans, and tell them blood and thunder stories of the pile of goldbuif money Hint was lining riri-ulnitil in Llniohi to contaminate the delegatus. Iho tendency was to brand uny delegnto who was at all inclined to be independent or to tippnio tho plans previously 1(( by .Mr. llryan mid other state leaders as n tool of tho uppoiillnu. 'I his really scared uianj Mld.llc-uf-the-lio.id men. When tho convention-, wero organized the biilldolng went eien further. All the pro siding olticcTS had been arranged by tho Lin coln rlugstcrs, and thev wero prepared to act quiikl). Men wero stationed in different parti of all tho halls and tho moment, a delegate gavu any sign of resisting the commlttco plans ho wus assaulted with ouch taunts as ''iiow much did J Sterling pay you I" "How long havo you been a gonlbiigl" "Thought ou wero elected u dclc-,;ate to a silver conven tion." "Ilet out of Iho hall if you want to bo tray your friends." 'Ibis was kein mp until men who nro ns sin cere silver ad i o. kites as William Jennings llryan, und who merely wanted to assert their holiest convictions that this or that . nn.ll.Ui., win tho stronger or the we.iker. wero forced In bo silent ut the risk of being stumped us po litical traitors. When the Independent bcntlment becnino too strong In any hall, llryan was rushed into that particular convention, nnd his preseine and slago play oratory were depended on to Bllcnco all opiHisillon. It ready did causo such en thusiasm taut tho voice of the oppu-dllon was drowned' In tho hurrah for Ilrvuti.

Senator Piatt nnd other Ho publicans havo been In communication with Mr. Ilnckctt, nnd It was announced on excel lent authority lnt night that tho Stato Com mlttco will meet nt tho Fifth Avenue Hotel on Sept. 18. Tho announcement as to the forthcoming meet ng of tho Stnto Commlttco Is Important, In view of tho erroneous Btatomcnts mado yesterday by Mugwump and antl-Ilcpubllcan novvsp ipers lo tho offoct that there Is a Low sentiment among tho Kepubllcnns In tho upper part of tho State. Senator ltalnosnud Rcprosentnttvo Ilcnjamln I). Odoll, Jr., Chairman of tho Executive Com mlttco of tho Slato Commlttoo, wero given as authority for this statoment. lloth Mr. Ilalnos and Mr. Odoll declared yesterday that thoy had never given tho slightest ground for such a statement, and It Is announced on tho best authority that Senator Piatt, Gov, lllac-k. Mr. O.lell, Chairman Hnckott, Superintendent of Insurance Pnyn, Superintendent of Publlo Works Aldrldge, nnd all other Hopubllcan Stato leaders aro unaltorably opposod to the stand taken by Jacob Worth In his advocacy of tho candidacy of Scth Low as ugalnst the Ho publlcan organization of Greater Now York. All theso men nro old friends of Mr. Worth, yot every ono of them has stated In personal conversations their objection to his course, which thoy know Is dictated by a policy that Is Intended to help nlong Mr. Worth's candidates in tho Kings County Convention. In other words, Mr. Worth, according to his critics, is simply using Mr. Low for his personal purposes, and nothing moro; and nil this Is contrary to tho nntlonal and Stato doctrines of tho Republican party. Tho doctrines of tho Republicans In tbolr State Committee will be nnnounced In an address, fully indorsed by all of tho Republican Stnto leaders und by tho Stato Committee, nnd Mr. Worth, when ho reads that document, will Und himself in direct opposition to his old friends, for the reason thit the substance of the address to lie Issued by the Stnto Commltteo will ben. loptcd by Iho Republicin Cily Convention when It iisscmbles on Sept.

President Qulgg reiterated last night tho views ho has recently expressed. He suld: "I'nder nocircumst inces will the Republican City Convention nominate or Indorse fctn Low, I wbu-u nomination w as brought about by a hand ful ot citizens whose ehlef ide i in lite Is I head- v.ilieement of an ln.livl iu.il who his declared th.il ha will fortmilnto his own plutfonn und stand on It in opposition to the; platform of thu Republican party Tho Republicans cannot under nny circum stances accept such u man. Someof thoso per sons not in Ihe contldcnco of Itepuhllcans con tinue day after day to insist tint tho It pub liiam will be compelled tohomjnito or indorse Mr. Ijiivv. How wofully mistaken these per sons are ibuC ty Convention will show." Hefore long Sen itor Piatt may uec-ule to say a few words. Ills friends have advised him that ns the Republican leader of Ihe Stale he should tell the Republicans of the State and of Greater New York the exact situation. It was the Re publicans of the State who created Greater New York. In passing It may also bo announced that Mr. Worth's old friend, Superintendent of Insurance Payn, Is directing an opposition to him on this Law business. Mr. Pnyn said: " II tbo Republicans of Greater New York lower tho flag of tho Republican party one inch, or by tho slightest word depart from tho princi ples of tho party, they might as well disband Ihclr organization at once. Any departure from tho principles of tho Republican party will bring about the destruction of tho organiza tion In Greater New York." The It. publican primaries, it wa3 said, will bo calli .1 for Sent. -JO. unit by that time tho address which will be Issued by the Republican Stato Commltteo will hnvo been fully digested in all Paris of Greater New York, und nf course Mr. Worth and his Ijow boom, for Worth reasons only, will bo overwhelmed In Ihe Cilv Conven tion, which will meet on Sept. Sis. The Republicans polntu I out last night that the great olllccs of Greater New York should bo held by nu'U who believe in tho St. Louis plat form, and not by those who nro indifferent lo tho great national issues which will surtly present themselves ngiin in 111(H), or by those who believe morning, noon, and night In Ilrvanisin. anarchy, frco silver, and the disrup tion of tho Government. Republicans who havo not been In affiliation with the regular organization In Now York county declared yes terday that I hoy were opposed to Low Ism just ns nun has they were to Ilryanism, and that they would stand bv tbo regular organiz itlon. Senator John M. Thurston of Nebraska, who I was tho permanent Chairman of Ihe St. Louis Convention which nominated MeKinlev, was I at the Kit tli Avenue Hotel yestcrdnv. lie said: I "Mr. Low's nomination by the Republican organiz itlon would be thoroughly distasteful to Republicans ull over tho country. I should feel less nlurm for the success of tho anti-Tammany tight if this spill for it is a split had not oc elli red. "This election will mean tho State In tho next I'roil Initial election fur tho turty that wins It. Republicans throughout tho nation arc there fore Interested In Mils great light, since we can not tlu'iiro In n Presidential election without Now York Slate. "This is n city nf great Importance and this Isn turning point In its history which is fraught witli iMissibllllies tbut may noil II ro tho pride of all Americans." Senator Piatt smiled last night nt tho reports that ho Is In a " quandary." The Senator didn't seem to l) in a "uunndury." The Citizens' Union people seem to bo in u qunnd.irv, II any body, it wus remarked, ns well us somo other pcoplo who havo been a little hasty. Senator Plait had nothing to say for publication at this tlmo. Ha will suy what ho has to say in his on u good time. After Mr. Low sends his letter of nccoptnnco to tho eighteen "palpitating patriots" of tho Citizens' Union KxccutlveCommltteo. the afore said "p ilpilatlng patriots "will get to work and take bicds to Ull out their city ticket.
