WM. J. BRYAN JOLTS THE PRESS
( BEFORE LARGE CROWD
William Jennings Bryan addressed
j 4,000 people at the Auditorium last
night. He attacked the subsidized
press the so-called"- metropolitan
press and when he had concluded
his caustic remarks in this direction
a voice yelled from the gallery:
i "Shame on the press."
i "Our only means of reaching the
! public is through the public meet-
; nig," Bryan stated. "Every crisis
which arises between great interests
and the public means that public
speaking Is more necessary. And al-
i ways we find the press is on the side
of the vast interests.
"There is a new invention by
which we, the people, can avoid war.
It is the initiative and referendum.
Let us transfer the right to declare
war from congress to the people.
Also let us ask the neutral countries
whether or not they want our aid
before we go to war for them.
"I do not agree with those who
speak harshly of the president. But
I think that he has been misled by
the subsidized press into believing
what is not the sentiment of the peo
ple. There is a conspiracy on foot
in this country to make us adopt a
false philosophy that of terrorism.
Three groups are trying to force it
upon us. The first is the munition
manufacturers, the second the mili
tarists and the professional soldiers,
and the third is the employers of
labor who want a big army to over
awe the working man.
"The papers misconstrue the news, b
They are owned by these interests.
They want two billion of dollars to
get ready to fight and they want 800
millions a year to keep ready. The
money is more than twice the total
income of the American farmers. It
would gridiron the country with
macadam roads placed 12 miles apart
both east and west It is equal to
the total amount we spend for edu
cating our children.
"This is what they want and this
is what they will get unless we wake
up and speak against the demands
of the subsidized press. This is our
duty to the president and to con
gress. Write letters to congressmen,
to the newspapers and to the presi
dent" Bryan, Prof. Scott Nearing and
Prof. Foster of the "U. of C." all
called on this country to end the
war in Europe. The speech-making
lasted more than two hours and
thousands of people were turned
away from the theater.
WOMEN MAKE ANOTHER TOUR
OF DANCE HALLS AND CAFES
Two parties of wonien crusaders
made another tour of dance halls
and cafes which a week ago aroused
their ire by the suggestiveness of
their dance and demeanor of the
guests and found the dancing J'
"tame" and demeanor decorous.
In most of the places, say the in
vestigators, there was nothing worth
criticising. But the Schiller, Pom
peian, DeLuxe and Elite were all re
ported to be selling drinks after the
Sunday a. m. legal closing hour.
1 There was severe criticism of the
j daiiLcb at the Elite cafe.
