More Favor?Pokes Fun at Presi?
dent Roosevelt.
RICHMOND, VA.. Oct. I.?"Bryan
Day" was ushered In with idea; woa
thor conditions?azure skh's, bright
.sunshine and a balmy breeze, which
made it delightful in bo out of tloors.
The distinguished Commoner arrived
over Hie Ohernpeakc ami Ohio rail?
way from Cincinnati at V: 10 this morn?
ing and was escorted to the Jefferson
Hotel, where a largo number ol peo?
ple wore ready to greet him. In tho
in--intime preparations wen- being
mndc for the parade to the fair
grounds. Ii was m arl II o'clock when
the procession, headed by a platoon
of police under Chief Marshal II. It.
Pollard. Jr., began to move. In the
lirst carriage were the Hon. William
.1. Bryan, Mayor McCarthy, ox-Oover
lior Montague and President II. V.
Stuart, of the Virginia state Fair. Be?
hind followed over a hundred repre?
sentative citizens In carriages, Kess
nich's band was In line, mid the pro?
cession was closed by a platoon of
police. It was II when tho parade
reached the fair grounds, where sineo
;? o'clock people had boon entering
ill u steady stream. At 1 I o'clock tho
entire grandstand was- lilled to over
Mowing, and by the time . tho uis
tlnguishcd guesl arrived there woro
fully ?0,000 people on the grounds. |
Before the spenklng was over tho
crowd bad Increased to at least 25,
000.
Bryan's Arrival.
Tho arrival of the carriage contain?
ing Mr. Bryan >Vns tie- signal for a
tremendous hurst of applause which,
overspreading the grounds, brought
hundreds from the attractions on the
opposite Bide on Hie run. When Mr. '
Bryan arrived ;'i tho press stund tho
space between that and the grand?
stand was literally a sea of human
faces. Hundreds crowded around hlm
and shook his hand at the foot of the
slops leading to llie speaker's stand. I
Pres. Stuart Introduces Montague.
President Stuart called the assem?
blage to order and Introduced ox-Gov
ornor Montague, who in turn Intro- J
ducud Mr. Bryan.
Mr. Bryan, after expressing gratifi?
cation at his reception mid the useful-,
if s of agricultural fairs, said in sub?
stance at the State fair today:
"The greatness of our nation Is not!
monsurcd by the products of the farm'
or factory, hut by the manhood and'
womanhood produced for tue follow?
ing of high ideals. Tilings tending
lo advance our government can never
be out of place. 1 was told thai H po?
litical speech would bo acceptable
here. yet. 1 do not like to make a purely
political speech. -,v partisan speech. I
shall take as- my subject The Aver?
age Man," and shall show how nilini
eroils he ir? antl then connect him
with government nnd with public prob?
lems, ami if. when 1 am through, you
have a suspicion that this average
man of whom I speak Inclines to lie
Democratic; just remember that the
average num. if lie knows what ho is.
cannot he anything but Democratic." |
Loud laughter followed this political
sally. I
Our Great Averanc.
"Our average man." added Mr.
Bryan, "is the biggest average man
in ihis world, in some countries', you
cannot ||n(| an average man. for the
average man would he somewhere be?
tween the extremes ami be is not
prcsenI in the flesh, lie is an imagin?
ary character. The common people
are the people of Ihis country. |
"1 waul lo make this ela.'-s of peo?
ple .so popular." added Mr. Bry'nh, "that
everybody will want to get into it.
And I am going to show you who those
pnoplo are. for the respectability of
the classes Is determined largely by
those who belong to it.
Against Three-Term Proposal. <
Th ? speaker contrasted the broad
poliilc.il vjows of Jefferson nnd the
narrow ideas of Hamilton, after which,
in discussing tiie permanency of demo?
cratic ideas, he Bald: "No President
has ever dared to violate UVo two
term precedent. So strong is this Idea
in this country now that the President
of the United Slates recognizes It. Ho
said on the evening of his election
thai he regarded this term as n SCO
I nnd term and would not bo n cnndl
\ date for a ihjrd tbrm, So the Pros!
v dent recognizes it. my friends. If I
j\sald; I would n?' bellovo the protea
* Itntloiifi of friendship of any member
(Vfof my parly that assumed 1 would
Uchnhgcj my mind on such ?'? quoBllpn.';
JAdiroat applause.)
v\ A momont, later the Nobraskan de
clarcd himself In favor of electing
United states 8onatora by tho people.
Tlio present plan is too "Hamilton
Ian," said ho. The most popular re?
form Is I hut which hits for Its object'
the election of United States Senators
by direct vote of the people.
Touching further on the now nl-|
most obsolete theories of Hamilton.
Jcffersunian Idea Growing.
Mr. Bryan said: "The Hamlltoitlan!
Idoa is the decaying idea: the Jeff er-1
soiilntl idea is the growing idea..
Everywhere in the world tho Demo?
cratic party is growing; the nrtlsto-l
cratlc party is the dying party lho:
world around. We must bring tho gov?
ernment down to the people. The
Democratic doctrine Is that the slat.'
Bhoultl lake care of its own affairs
and tho federal government should
take <ate of the affairs in which wo,
are Interested in common.
vThe question has been raised in I
two ways recently. In one way the
federal courts have attempted to sus-i
peild the laws of the states, and then
soon a- the people think about it then
begin to express themselves in demo?
cratic terms. Tile attorney generals,
of the states- of the United States met]
at SI. I.ouls less than two weeks ago:
and they propnred a memorial to be'
presented to Congress, and what Is-'
it? It is a rennest that lite power]
of tlie lower federal courts to sus?
pend the laws- of the state shall bo,
taken away, so that these state laws
may lie enforced, leaving those that
object to pposoeuto appeals from tho
Supreme Court of tin- State lo Ihoj
Supreme Court of the United stales.
Now that is Democratic doctrine,
though a majority of the Attorneys
general who prepared tke mcmorlnl
were Republicans."
Thinks Well of Roosevelt.
Many were the good humored
thrusts which Mr. Bryan took occa?
sion lo aim at the President? though
he was careful to wold saying any?
thing which COUld prove offensive even
to persons differing from him in poli?
tics. Indeed, be declared that ho
thought well of Roosevelt and had
oven been criticised advprsely for not
attacking hint with more severity. The
Nebraskan commented on Roosevelt's
tendency to borrow good things from
the Democratic platform?a process
Which Mr. Bryan described aa "nib?
bling."
In this connection, the speaker said
that for years he had borne in ills

and the opponents tu th ? contrary.
The resolution Of child labor was of?
fered in the house of hlshons by
Rlshon Oreor, of New York, it was
as follows:
"Wlii reaa, the ovll of child labor is
apparently on the Incvettso in the
United Stilles und is known that IllO
employment cf children in factories,
mines and shops reduces Wagbs to
Ihe child's standard, disintegrates the
family, deprives Ihe child of natural
lights to a period of training, and
dep esses the human stock, ami
"Whereas, we recognize the pro
found responsibility of ihe church for
our ethical as well as our spiritual
standard, therefore we call upon em?
ployers ami parents to exercise their
influence toward better legislation
ami better enforcement of the laws
to the etui that the exploitation of tho
labor of children shall become Impos?
sible In this Christian country.!'

ATTEND ANCeTtHIGH
SCHOOL NOT SO LARGE
Although the Total Enrollment in
Schools iE Greater Than Ever, Many
Advanced Pupils Have Dropped Out
Although the enrollment or pupils
in the city public schools tills session
is the greatest in the history of the
city, the attendance in the High school
Is not Pearly as- huge us the school
authorities had expected it to be. only
M'.u pupils being enrolled in the school
at this lime.
One reason advanced for the small
enrollment in this school is that only
a very small percentage 61 the pupils
who failotl Insl BOSSlon applied for
enrollment this year. Another reason
is mat ihe class which entered the
gchool from the grammar schools Ibis
session was un unusually small on .,
there having been a large number' of
failures In the upper grammar school
classes lust yenr.
Superintendent of Schools W. ('.
.Morion is endeavoring to strike upon
sonic plan to keep the pupils- who fall
in the seventh grades and the High
school .In Cue schools. For several
years pupils who fail in those grades
have been dropping Oil I of school ami
th" Bupcrlnfohoenl is- endeavoring lo
impress upon the minds of the parents
the necessity for Ihe Children to con?
tinue their studies.
A large class will enter the High
school when the second half of the
prc&ohl session begins in February
I nnd the present enrolment will be In?
creased lo 170 or 180. A class will
: graduate in February, but it Is not
