Greeting- and Response.
A felicitous address of greeting was
made this morning to the women by

lege, and a happy response was made

with the highest institutions of learn
ing. The generous applause showed this
to be tho sentiment of the convention.

CLEVELAND ON PARKER,
Former President Gives Personal Es
timate of New York Jurist.
NEW YORK, Oct 21. Grover Cleve
land, In McClure's for November, gives
his personal estimate of Judge Parker
as a candidate for President He says
"We sometimes find features of char
acter so prominently visible ln a
man's mental organization that, like the
features of his countenance, we need
no proof of their existence. This is pre
eminently true of Judge Parker's ln
tenso deliberation ln reaching, conclu
sions and his Inherent Judicial con
servatism. These qualities of his mind
are so distinctly apparent that they are
at once seen and known by all who gain
tho- slightest knowledge of the man.
This should make It thoroughly under
stood that those who love Presidential
pyrotechnics must look elsewhere.
"I have known Alton B. Parker for
more than twenty years. He Impressed
mo on our first acquaintance as a sin
cere, honest and able man; and this Im
pression has with time and observation
grown to clear and undoubting convic
tion. I ant sure that I venture nothing
in making the positive assertion that
the guiding trait of his character Is his
constant and unyielding devotion to
"Judge Parker's experience in Judicial
Investigation, added to his natural apti
tude in the same direction, ought to
satisfy the most cautious and exacting
of his abundant ability to discover ln
the light of constitutional requirements
and in the atmosphere of enlightened
but conservative Americanism, tho
manner in which a President should
best serve his countrymen.
"I am persuaded that the American
people will mako no mistake if they
place implicit reliance in Alton B.
Parker's devotion to duty, in his clear
perception of the path of duty, In his
steadfast persistency against all temp
tation to leave the way where duty
leads, and in his safe and conservative
conceptions of Presidential responsibilities."
BRYAN IN DAVIS'S STATE.
Nebraskan Delivers a Speech in Por-kersburg-
PARKERSBURG. W. Va., Oat. 2L
William J. Bryan today began a two days'
campaign ln West Virginia for tho Na
tional Democratic ticket. Henry G. Davis
welcomed tho Nobrnskan when ho arrived
this afternoon. During Mr. Bryan's
speech, of an hour's duration, Mr. Davis
sat behind him on a sccond-Btory portico,
which overlooked as many people as could
got within earshot of Mr. Bryan. When
tho speech was concluded Mr. Davis faced
tho audience, but moroly acknowledged
their plaudits and simply declared that
no man could speak after Mr. Bryan.
In his speech Mr.- Bryan said ho stood
for tho principles of government and De
mocracy on which ho mado hla two cam
paigns of 1KW and 1900. Ho declared with
emphasis that ho had given up nothing
of thoso beliefs, and that tho present
Democratic platform pavo him moro of
them than any othor platform. Imperial
Ism received moro attention than any
othor subjeot touched on.
Speaker Cannon, he said, was referring
to the acslstanco Bryan had rendorcd In
securing tho ratification of tho Spanish
peaces treaty. In tills referonco. ho said,
Mr Cannon was entirely overlooking tho
amendment which Mr. Bryan had also
supported, placing tho Filipinos on exact
ly the samo banl au tho Cubans. Ho had
been askod how, as a believer ln silver,
he could voto for a candidate who be
hoved ln gold. His answer wns that tho
currency question had been weighed ln
tho balance with the questions that havo
arisen wltbln tho last few years, and
"human rights and declaration of Inde
pendence mako Uo money question ooem
small and Insignificant."
"Ono of two mon will bo Prejddont,"
said Mr. Bryan. "It will bo Parkor or
Roosevelt. If I did not do what I could
to help Parker I would bo helping Roose
velt, ami I am not willing to take tho re
sponsibility of four moro years of Roose
velt. My chief concorn ln tho campaign
Is that ovcry man who voted for mo ohall
voto for Parker and Davis, I tried to save
this country from Imperialism and I
failed. I am now going to help Parkor
savo It. It will bo my victory and yours
and tho victory of all tho people, and
there Is glory enough for all of us ln ouch
a victory." , , . , .

ITyo Delivers Address. jfijl
In his opening address Chairman jl
George L. Nye of the county committee fj I
made a distinct hit by announcing that jj jl
this was the first rally of the American j jl
party of Utah in Sundy, but It would U II
by no means be tho last that the party jj II
had come to stay until the redemption jj II
of Utah from ecclesiastical domination jl II
of political affairs had been accom- J II
pllshed. His declaration that the j
nartv's ticket seemed certain, of success till
at this election in Salt Dako county Hj
was greeted with marked applause. U
Chairman Nye scored another point by &
citing how the campaign orators of the f
opposition whp first tried to belittle the ffl
strength of the new party movement fi
now feared the result, and debated their V
efforts to defaming the American party aj
This, he said, seemed to be the only S
argument the opposition could advance m
to win favor with the voters. f
Judge DinLnny Speaks. i
In his a3 dress H. J. DInlnny, nominee If
for County Attorney, announced that M
the principles of the American party
appealed more directly to the personal I
Interests of those present and ovcry one 1
In Utah than the question of who should I
occupy the Presidential chair Ho was S
specific ln declaring that the new 1
party Is not antagonizing the religious S
sentiments of the people, but Is oppose B
Ing the political activity of the Mormon jg
church leaders rather than of the mem- Jf
borshlp of the followers. ffl
Three Propositions. O;
Judge DInlnny laid down the propo- i
sition that If the promises made by the 1
dominant church leaders as a condition flt
precedent to securing Statehood for Si
the people of Utah had been kept jtfi
there is no reason for the birth and m
existence of the new party, but If these Sj
promises had been broken thero Is II f
ample Justification for the American flj
movement. He then detailed the public S',
acts of the ecclesiastical power ln Utah n
wherein bad faith has been shown by
the dominating ones through both the '
Republican and Democratic parties,
oven to tho midst of this campaign. Ho
added that not until the American party 1
had been formed did the oraiors of the 3f
two great National parties dare say a K
word about church Interference ln po- ft
lltlcal affairs. B
Election of Snioot. i jliH
For these conditions, resulting in the 1 1 jl
foisting of Reed Smoot, clothed ln his I nljH
apostolic robey, upon the country ao a yjH
United Statos Senator, and elevating Ifprl
him Co the poNillon of jo'll'eal dops over J f.iH
the State. Judge DInlnny Bald the Mpr- 1 tjiH
mon people are not wholly to blame. 1$H
since not a few non-Mormons hav j gH
sought ecclesiastical Influence that they j jj'H
might win political preferment. Amidst J (H
applause ho closed by urging the people ! tiffl
of Sandy to help the new party's move- t JjJH
mcnt, which will bring political content- J jjil
ment and greater freedom, especially I itM
to the progressive young Mormons, than j ttjH
they could possibly expect otherwise. J IflH

Senator Cannon's Speech. -Kl
In tho absonce of Judge Hilos It may be jfl
deemed incumbent upon me to mako such i-'tl
presentation aa I can of the strong 1!'I
grounds, as ho strongly states them, why Ivtl
this party la ln t-xlstenco. If the other rl
parties which are waging a-political battle ftl
ln Utah wero amply tiutflclent to expreaa I'UmM
the need of tho peoplo then It was on oco- tiM
nomlc and social crime, however mno- i'
cently committed, for this party to com U
Into existence It Is an economio orlnio 'MH
for tho peoplo to have wasted time ana ijiH
money upon a party that Is uaoleefl whoae 1 ;?
