CHICAGO. ILL., .March lfl?Declnr
inK that'the greatest of present day
evils Is "ih>' domination of politics b>
the favor seeking corporations," and,
nsaotting that the Democratic patty]
is Hi*- hi si qualified in undertake the j
task of correcting thcls, William J. ]
Bryan tonight celebrated his -IStli I
birthday, by delivering a speech on
national issues before a big mass
meeting in the Seventh Regiment ar?
mor)' on Sixteenth street. Mr. Rryun
look for his subject "Why Democ?
racy?" and afier discussing the rec?
ords of President. Roosev.lt. Governor
Hughes and Secretary Taft as rega'Js
corporation legislation, he answered
queiitIon by saying: "Because the
Democratic party is the only party I
hufllalently large to give hope of sue
ce>:i and sufficiently Democratic to(
give hope of relief after a victory has
been won."
The speech by M". Bryan was the!
5?nly one delivered at the menting.
. Carter IT Harrison, former mayor
of Chicago, presided.
About 10,000 persons crowded into
the big building and it was nearly au
hour past the scheduled time of S !
o'clock when Mr. Biya.it began to I
speak. Mr. Bryan said In part: I
"Assuming that reforms nre neces?
sary what party can best be intrust
oil with the work of securing them?
I heg to present the clnlnis of the
Democratic patty. What are the evils
to be corrected? The greatest of all
the cvllst?and it is the fruitful cause
of almost all the other evils?is the
domination of politics of the favor
si eking corporations. By dominating
politics they dominate the govern?
ment, national and .-irate. There Is not
a question upon which the people are
thinking, which does not to a greater j
of less extent involve this question: I
Shall the government be administer?
ed In the interest of the whole peo?
ple, by unpurchasable and incorrupt?
ible representatives or the people, or
shall the favor' seeking corporations
control the elections, raise their rep?
resentatives to power and through
them exploit the country.
Conditions Not nStisfaetory.
"If the present Situation Is satis?
factory: If the people are contented
with the .distribution of wealth, and
with the predominating Influences of
there combinations, then there is no
good reason why tho Republican parly
should not he continued In power, fo'"
ii has created the conditions which
now e\ist and must have credit or
blani v acrordjlng to whether th.-sn
conditions are de.-irablc or undesir?
able.
"1. think I can .safely assert Hint
conditions are not satisfactory, and In
snppoil of this assertion can point
to the reel ihnl remedial legislation Is
d<man.led by practically all of the
Democratic party and by a very large
proportion of the Republican party.
Whatever popularity ihe President
has. is due to the efforts lie has made
In the direction of reform, although
these efforts have been spasmodic,
rather than continuous, and have not
hern supported hy his own parly.
The Democratic party can claim the
right to carry out these reforms, first
because that party is almost unani?
mously In favor of reform, while in
tha Republican party there Is a vifry
large minority, if not an actual ma?
jority, against any and nil Important
reform*.
Difference Between Two Parties.
"Wh'le the Republican party Is
spending its time between jeforms and
stand pattern, the Democratic party is
ready for action. Then. loo. I lie Dem?
ocratic administration will, If elected,

forms nnmnl In thp platform, while
the Republican parly will ask the pub?
lic to trust It to car'y out such re?
forms as nwy be out lined after the
e|rclion. In the one case the people
know what to expect; In the othor
case they are left In uncertainty.

WASHING TON. 1). C, March 1!? ?
Directing ins remarks to Ihe elm-go
fnrmnily made that the recent finan?
cial stringency was Btarled by bank
eis and linahclcrtt, Senator LaFolletto
ii day declared lhn( since he spoke oil
Tuesday ho had secured additional In?

li. It. Vetuillla, auditor or the Wasli
inglon I.He Insurance company, call?
ing upon an agent to Bend premiums*
collected weekly, to New oYrk, and
he said such letters we:e sent t"
agents of that company all over the
country.
"Other New Yok Insurance com?
panies," raid Mr. LaFolleltc, ,lcon
trolled T>y Identical and allied tntor
ostn at the same time gave similar
Instructions to their state managers
throughout the country."
Senator (Jure, the idind representa?
tive of Oklahoma. Interrupted to ask
whether, in view of the charges made
by the senator from Wisconsin. the
rPoeldent was not the man who
brought on the panic.
"Docs the senator think," he asked,
"that President Roosevelt and Bec
ri tary Cortelyou were not st ir actors
in thai performance, or at least they
knew the chief actors when it was
over?"
He quoted a letter senl by Presi?
dent Roosevelt 10 Mr. Coitelyott.
Mr. LuFollettc depreciated ihe Idea
of bringing partisan politics into the
discussion and said he did not pro?
pose to lie drawn into cTlticIsm of
the President, who had done the best
he could to relieve the situation and
lind not tliougt it wise at that crit?
ical moment to attempt punishment
of the Incendiaries who had started
Ihe conflagration, which the P esldenl
sought to put out.
Congratulations Condemned.
"Whatever the agencies hack of that
panic." said Mr. I-nFollotte, "what?
ever the purposes were behind it. the
President and his secretary of the
treasury were confronted with n con?
dition. He saw that legitimate bus?
iness was put in peril and the respon?
sibility came to him as the head "I
the government and to his secretary
as the head of the treasury depart?
ment. Where else could the money
have been sent to slop the panic no
matter what Influences might have
been behind this bill?"
Senator Bailey said he ag-'eed with
the Oklahoma senator that the money
should have been sent to Ihe banks
throughout the country whose money
was in New- York nnd was kept front
them and he did not think such a per?
formance should have been ended i,y a
letter Of congratulation from the Pres?
ident.
Mr. Gore said he justified the P:os
jdenl "in standing and delivering to
the banks and depositing with them
the people's money when their dag?
ger w- s rt his throat.
"But I cannot excuse him for con?
gratulating the pirates as benefactors.
I excuse the President for helping Hi"
Ihclndlarics who kindled the fi-e. but
I can hardly go so far as to approve
his congratulating them as Ihe. de?
livers of the country."
Mr. Core staled tint lie hardly
agreed witli the senator from Wis?
consin that Mr. Rockefeller nnd Mr.
Morgan brought on (his country a
panic which had ripened to a point
of falling, but he did not think thoy
should be bailed as benefactor's af?
terward.
Fault; of Aldricb Bill.
Referring to the Aldrlsh bill as
repp:ted, Mr. LffFollette declared that
the railroad bonds should be whisked
out of the measure.
"Wo are not through with that
proposition." he added. "It will ap?
pear again and again and until Anal?
ly it U overwhelmingly beaten or un?
