BRYAN ADDRESSES ' THEJVORKINGMEN A Large Audience Greets the Willie of the Platte. AN EULOGY ON AMERICAN LABOR Did Not Make it Political Speech, but Advised People Not to Vote Accord ing to the Ideas ol'Their F.iiinloyrrs, II ib Address Mm Ailuuded at frequent Intervals. Chicago, Sept.". As early as 10 o'clock Sharpshooters' J'ark began to till up with men uml women and by twelve every scat before the speakers' stand was taken by people who sat in the boil ing sun for two hours u get a chance to hear the orator of the day. A few minutes after 2 o'clock half a dozen car riages bearing the Itryan party arrived at the piii and were followed Into the grounds by a cheering, running crowd uf men ami boys. Without sutllilcni police pr.itectli.ii Mr. Hiyiul was forced to push his way through the crowd at the speaking platform, and after shaking half a hundred outstretched hands he dropped to a seat with his party follow ing, amid the same obstacle to their passage. In .Mr. Uryan's carriage were Kdward Carroll, president of the Huild Ing Trades council; J. ('.. .MeKinley, president of the Carpenters' district council, ami J. .1. ltyan, a local labor leader. The crowd of li.ixin was a motley and ilisoiderly one and it was fifteen min utes before Chailiilun Carroll could be heard. Nobody wunt".l o hear him. jand he iilckly Introduced the man for I whom the thousands kept up an inter mittent tire of "Hurrah for Hryan." 1 The crush around the platform was so great that several women 1'ninteil and narrowly escaped being trampled upon. Mr. Itryan uppculcd fur iiulel, and Du ally it was accorded him. broken occa sionally by cries of "ijood boy, Willie." The speaker began with an eulogy on American labor. Although his audience was largely In sympathy with him politically. Judging by the general manifestations tind the absence of any hostile demonstrations, Mr. Uryiin did not inaac a partisan siicim h. He said he did no! intend to disregard the proprieties of the occa sion by entering Into a discussion of partisan ipiestious. His speech was de voted to un exposition of the form of government in this country, its useful ness and Its abuses; to an appeal to workingmen to maintain the Integrity of the ballot, to bring about a reforma tion in the conditions which surrounded them If they were discontented and wanted a change. He told the people not to vote accord ing to the Idens of their employers and was greeted with tremendous applause, lilsciuiiciit lay ut the foundation of nil progress. He inipl csse.l upon the work ingmen the importance of voting only as their judgment and conscience' dic tated. When he said: "Some people have criticized labor organizations." voices cried "Manna." derisively. His address was applauded at frequent In tervals. jtitY.ws si'i:i:cn. Mr. Itryan said in purt: Ladies and U-n-lleihen:! desire to thank the building and trades council for this opportunity which they have extended me of speaking 10 the isople assembled on Labor liny, l.ulmr Day lins become a hxed evetu among our Institutions and It Is Well that 11 is S'l, because on tills .luy, all over '.his iiaiion those who are enguged in the pro duction of wealth, meet In order that they may commune with each other, discuss those questions In which they are espec ially Inicrrsied. and emphasize ' ...ore the world that there Is nothing dishonorable In the fact that one earns his bread in the sweat of his face. T urn glml to stici I on this day In the presence of those. o whom this uiuiun is so largely Indebted for ull that It has had, for all thut it has now, and for all that it can hope lo have. 1 nm not Indulging in idle flattery when 1 say to you that no purt of the people of the world are so important to the welfare of mankind as those whose labor un.l brains convert the natural resouues of the world into material wealth. 1 might quote to you what Mr. Carlisle said lo these peo ple in 1STS. w lien he described thrill as tl.e striiKUliug miissi s who produced the wealth and who paid the taxes of the co'iii try. Jle did not praise thein too highly. The struggling masses not only produce the wealth and pay the taxes in time of peace, but the struggling musses hav ever been and must ever be Hie tuition's sun sf protection In time of peril. The speaker then look from his pocket the coi.v of un address by Abiuhum Lincoln- delivered In congress, lrom which n quoted certain puiuiiiiiphs, one of whi -li culled attention lo an effort made lo phi. e capital on an cquulii) with labor In the structure of government and following Willi the assertion Unit eupii.il Is only the fruit of labor mid could have never ex isted without It. "Labor." al. Linenin. "Is superior to capital and deserves much higher consideration." UK Qt'DTES SOLOMON. Mr. Iiryan followed with a quotation from Solomon and continued:. ."Solomon favored neither poverty nor riches. We regarded that condition best which Is not at either extreme, but lies between the extremes, neither great riches nor abjc ; poverty, furnish us the soli in which grows Hie best civilization. Tlio.e who are pressed by poverty lose the ambition, the Inspiration, the lofty purpose thut lire necessary to had one on to the greatest achievements, and those who possess too great wealth, lose the necessity tor labor that labor which is absolutely essentlil to the development of that which Is best In human nature. Solomon was right. therfore, when he praised this Intermediate condition for the great middle clashes are the bulwark of society and from the mid dle classes have come almost nil the good that has come to bless the human race. Let me rail your uttentlon to the fact that when the meek and lowly Nazarei.o came among men and preached peace on earth and good will towards men he was not welcomed by those who are described as people who devour widows' houses and under pretenses mado long prayers, but when he gave that greut commandment "love thy nelghhor as thyself" who lis tened to him? The Scripture tells us it was the common people who listened tn his commandments and who Welcomed him, it Is the greatest compliment ever paid to the master. The Scriptures say the common people heard him gladly and the common people are the only people who have ever heard gladly any mup vho preached humanity and equal rights. (Prolonged cheers.
