Ideas on the Way to Reform. T OF HIS UTTERANCES He Has Spent Weeks Preparing His Ideas for Presentation and Goes Deeply Into the Sub ject. Demanding Immediate Reform of the Schedules. De. Moines, Aug. 22. William J. Bryan formally opened his campaign here last night with the speech dis cussing the tariff question, which he has had under consideration for sev eral weeks past. Too speech Is re' garded as one of the most important he will make during the campaign and was listened to by an Immense crowd of people. Uls speech follows; Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: In my notification speech I stated that, as the csmpalgn progressed, 1 would discuss the question. "Shall the People Rule as it applies to the var ious issues Involved in this campaign. I begin with the tariff question, be cause it Is the most ' lasting of our economic questions and the one upon which the leading parties have most frequently opposed each other. Other quest. ons muy come and go, but ques tions winch affect taxation, l.ke Ten nyson's "Brook" "to on forever." As the government is not a Lady Bounti ful, with unlimited means, but merely an organization which must collect on the one hand what it pays out on the other, the subject of taxat.on is an ever present one. We may discuss how much we should collect, wkat nfthc:h v tli"iM -jlo li. jIR-c. lng, and how best - to distribute, througn appropriations money col lected, but we are never far removed from the subject of taxation. Iowa has been selected for the pre-j mtaiiJn of what 1 desire to say upon th mio Ject, because the Iowa Republicans were the pioneers in the eriort to se cure tariff revision at the hauls of the republican party. 1 come amcng tin in to define and defend the Demo cratic position on the tariff question, because 1 -jei'eve it w'l; CJtiliuend it self to In. in. Tlint the Inxjc may he clearly staled, 1 sliati real yn.i l-e Democratic plank on this subject and then the Hepubl.can plank. The Democratic platform says: "We wel:ome the Delated pioirtite of tariff reform now offered by the ltepublican parly as a tardy recogni tion of the righteousness of the Dem ocratic pos.llun on this question; but the people cannot safely entrust the execution of thLs important work to a parly w hich is so deeply obi gated to the highly protected interests as is the Republican party. We call at tention to the .ignilicant fact that tile promised relief was postponed unal after the coming election an election to succeed in w nicn the ltepublican party must have the same support Xrom the b lu-lichti ies of the high pro tective tariff as it has always hereto fore received from them; and tJ the further fact thai during years of un interrupted power, no act. on whatever has been taken by the ltepublican Congress to correct the admittedly existing tariff iniquities. "We favor immediate revision of the tariff by reduction of Import du ties. Articles entering into competl- tlon will trust-controlied products should be placed upon the free 1st; material reductions should be maUfc; in the tariff upon the necessities of life, epeciuJy upon articles compet ing with such American manufactures as are sold abroad more cheaply than at home; and gradual reductions should be made In such other sched nles as may be necessary to restore the tariff to a revenue basis. "Existing duties have given the man ufacturers of paper a shelter behind which they have organised combina tions to raise the price of pulp and paper, thus imposing a tax upon the spread of knowledge. "We demand the Immediate repeal of the tar.ff on wood pulp, prirtt paper, lumber, timber and logs, and that these articles be placed upon th free list." The Republican platform says: "The Republican Irty declares un equivocally for a revision of the tar iff hv sneclal session of congress im- me.iiatcly following the Inauguration of the next president and commends the steps already taken to this end m the work assigned to the appropriate committees uf Congress, which are now Investigating the operation and effect of existln.

In all tariff legislation t e true principle of protection is best maintained by the Imposition of .-uch duties as Will equal tho difference between the cost of product.oii at nuine ana aoroau together with a reasonable profit to American lndutrles.

EASTERN CAPITALISTS THINK WEIL OF THE NEWJOAD Plttsburgers Who Are Backing Albuquerque Eastern Have Already Sold Bonds. BRILLIANT TOE FOR THE PROJECT Work Is to be Hushed With All Possible Haste In Order That Coal Mty be Pkiced on the Market From Mines at Ilagan Without Delay. It has been known for some time that work on the Albuquerque East ern railroad, recently merged with the Santa Fe Central, would be un dertaken at once and finished with out delay, and the following from the Pittsburg Dispatch of ' recent dale show what eastern capitalists wno are backing the road think ot the project: - Negotiations have been closed for tbale' of 31,6UO,000 first mortgage bonds of the Albuquerque & Eastern railroad to a syndicate ot 'western bankers and A. L. Richmond, Jr., Of Pittsburg. They will build 65 miles of railroad from Morlarty, on the New Mexico Central railroad, to Frost, and from that point west to Albuquerque and north to Ilagan. The signllicance of the enterprise is that it will open a new country and will return $3,500,000 to Pittsburg Invest ors who in their faith planted their money in that section four years 0. The new line will consist of 20 miles from Morlarty to Frost, 20 miles from Frost to Uagan, and 25 miles from Frost to Albuquerque. When the line has been completed it will be turned over to the New Mex loo Central and Hs Indebtedness add ed to" that of tne principal line. The entire enterprise will then be reorgan. ized, with the lowest bonded indebted ness of any line In the southwest, ap proximately $14,400 a mile. Line's Siru logic lslllon. The move has been in contempla tion for some time because of the strategic position held by the New Mexico Central in the future develop ment of the territory. Mr. Richmond, acquainted with all the details of the movement, visited the property la company with representatives ot th-J banking interests which knew some thing of the possibilities of the coun try. The report was favorable, being backed by a report ot the governnieat and the opinions of expert engineers. These, with the opinion of Mr. Rich mond, were accepted by the finan ciers and Ihe deal was closed. Work on the line w ill be commenced as Boon at the necessary surveys can be com pleted and the contracts let. Work is to be rushed with all pos sible speed, for at Ilagan there are coal mines with a capacity of 5u0 tons a day at this time, und which can be increased to l.OuO tons with very lit tle expense, while the demand for fuel is such that the company can sell 2,500 tons a day as soon as the railroad Is ready, and coal La selling for $7 a ton at Albuquerque.

While the plan was conceived by IMtsourg capitalists a substantial ra.iioad was built from a connection with the Denver & Ulo Grande on the north to a connection with the Kock island system on the south. Tuis line passed through a wonder- lully productive valley and the build ers spared no money in making the road one that need never be rebuilt. The topography of the couutry was such that the line the engineer, se- lected would make rapid progress. and before the rest of the world knew what wan going on 114 miles had been completed, fine terminals had been secured at Santa Fe and Torrance, and in anticipation of what was to come equally Important ter- mlnals had been acquired at Alba- querque on the Atchison.

LARGEST BUSINESS IN 0VER1W3 YEARS Prices Were Forced up From One to Three Points and Heavy Sales Were, Recorded. But Profit Taking at End Caused Feverish Close. New York, Aug. 22. Today's stock market was the most exciting fer months and the aalcg of stock in two hours of trading reached 1,300,000, the largest Saturday business sine the Harriman boom of two years ago. Apparently an effort had been made to take the bear party by surprise and force them to put their large out standing contracts on a rising mar ket. At the end of the first hour the maneuver seemed to be meeting with success and many shares ad vanced from 1 to 8 points over the opening. At the height of this movement sudden selling pressure came, under which declines of a point or more oc curred within a few minutes. Specu lation then became lively again ani stocks sold higher during the second hour than during the first. Just be fore the close heavy sales to take profits wiped out the earlier gains and the market closed feverish and uncertain.

Reeves, general agent for the Galveston, Harruiburg & San An tonio Railway company, arrived this morning from Roswell and has spent the day with local wool shipper. For month past a large part of the wool chipped from New Mexico has been carried by rail to the gulf and sent from there to Boston by water, and It la believed that an effort Is being made now on the part of the Morgan Steamship company, which la allied with the Galveston. Harrlsburg & San Antonio, to Influence 11 future shipments that way. While It would be more satisfactory to the II. A S.
