the minutes passed the Impatience
of the crowd increased, and men on
the stage tried to induce Colonel Arnett
to say a few words, but the coloned did
not take kindly to the suggestion. ExCongressman
John O. Pendleton was
Introduced and began talking Just as
the long-threatened rain began falling.
Mr. Pendleton waa probably not heard
by more than one-tenth of the audience.
Mr. Pendleton advised the crowd
to gird Itself In patience and calmly
await the arrival of Colonel' Bryan.
The questions of this campaign, said
the speaker, are stirring up the. people
from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The
campaign is hardly opened, and we behold
here one of the ereatput nolltlwit
gatherings ever assembled"' In West
Virginia. Mr. Pendleton was quite sanguine,
and said that the Democracy
this year not only had nine-tenths ftf
the Gold Democrats, but a large proportion
Of the Republicans.
At this point the crowd began to yell,,
the band played and Colonel Bryan and
the reception committee made their
way down the bank to the speaking.
. stand. "When Colonel Bryan appeared
on the stand a mighty -shout went up,
and Just at the identical moment the
rain "came down heavily. Umbrellas
were in requisition, and one was held
over Mr. Bryan by an enthusiastic admirer.
Soon there was a slight let-up,
and Colonel Bryan was Introduced by
Mr. Joseph Handlan. Again there was
a tremendous shout, and Colonel Bry'
an began speaking, with an umbrella
held over his head, and with his coat
collar turned up. Soon, however, the
rain stopped, and the speaker removed
his hat and turned down his coat collar.
Trusts, Imperialism, Militarism and
the Other "Isms."
In his speech Colonel Bryan said:
p jar. vnuirjijttji, i^uun-s ana usikktmen:?The
presence of so .many people
at this meeting to-night indicates that
you are interested in the Issues presented
In this campaign, and the, fact
that you are willing to stand here In
the rain is additional testimony of your
Interest. It is not curiosity, because I
have been here before, and you are not
here simply to see a man who is a candidate.
Whatever curiosity you may
have had was gratified in 3S56, and I
am sure that the Republicans who do
me the honor to come here to-night,
come for some better reason than curiosity.
(A Voice?"Here's one.") I am
glad to know that there are Republicans
here. I want to talk to Republicans
because I want to convert them,
and when I assume that it is possible to
" concert a Republican, I am compll^j'^jaenting
a Republican, because I am
assuming that lie makes his party affiliations
suit his ideas, and'IT I can
change his ideas I change his party af
; flliatiana. If there is a Republican here
who is not at liberty to vote as he
pirates, there is no use lor him to stay,
because if 1. convert him he will only
feel the worse because he cannot come
toctiie mourner's benchi (Applause.)
Now, no man makes a greater mistake
than the man who assumes that any
large proportion of the members of any
party do not want good government. I
consider that the assumption that a
great majority of all parties earnestly
desire that government which Is best is
correct. (Takes top coat off.) We
ought to compare Ideas in order to see
whose plan is the best, and I want to
present to you to-night some reasons
why you ought to vote with us, I care
not what you may nave done In 1S96; I
care not what .you may do four years
from now; I want to show you that
now you ought to act with us, and if I
; can give you good reasons why you
i should not act with us, I take it for
granted that those reasons will comj
mend themselves to your Judgment.
Platforms and Issues.
! . ' Now, in every campaign ther.e are
various questions presented to the
people. Every platform covers a numj
tier of Issues; but there Is always a
I difference of opinion as to the relative
Importance of those Issues. In this
campaign the Republican platform
spends the larger part of its space in
congratulating the Republican party
upon existing conditions. And it has
not clearly defined the party's position
on any question, except the question of
primary money, and in taking Its position
in favor of the gold standard the
Republican party for the first time deserts
the double standard, and . when
you Republicans are boasting that your
party is In favor of the gold standard, I
want to remind you that your party In
1898, promised tc do what it. could to
! get the double standard by Internation
al agreement, and I want you to ask
your Republican friends why no Republican
speaker and no Republican editor
attempts to explain the failure of
the Republican party to get a double
standard that you promised to try to
get by the aid of the leading, commercial
nations of the world. (Great applause.)
Whenever a Republican tells
you that the gold standard is good, you
ask him why the President, after his
Inauguration, sent a commission to Europe
to get rid of It. When a Republican
tells you that the gold standard Is
good you ask him why a Republican
Congress appropriated JIOO.OOO to pay
the expenses of the commission while it
was In Europe trying to get rid of the
gold standard. If any Republican tells
you that the gold standard Is good, you
tell him that within a year the Republican
senate and house and President
acted favorably upon a bill, the fourteenth
section of which, declared thnt
the bill was not Intended to stand In
the way of the restoration of the double
standard, flo you see that the . only
question upon which the Republican
party does take a positive stand Is a
new position for the Republican party.
Attacks Sound Money.
On the question of paper money the
Republican party do.?s not clearly declare
for the retirement of the greenback,
although the currency bill, which
Is now a law, provides for the retlramont
of tho greenback and th'o substitution
of the National bank notcu^ and
r . ' ./*. -*
'i'SgfiBraki~ '
I want you to ask your Republican
friends what excuse they can give for &
bill which retired greenbacks which
draw no Interest and substitute, bonds
which draw Interest, in order that national
banks may issue the money and
control the volume of it. I want you to
ask your Republican friends this question,
how can you have a National
bank currency, resting on bonds, and
have that currency as a permanent system,
unless you have permanent bonds
for the currency to rest upon? f"want
you to tell your . Republican friends
that until recently all Republicans
boasted that the^Republlcan party was
retiring the debt, lessening the debt,
and yet to-day the Republican party
stands for a financial bill, for a currency
system thnt can only be permanent
on the theory that the debt is to
be perpetual, and I want to ask your
Republican friends why they do not
openly advocate a permanent National
debt as a blessing to this country. That
is what they want, and they are not
" IUHH5 w mguc uic ovaicuKuv yuuuu),
and you will read Republican papers In
vain to find a defense of the perpetual
debt and yet you could not have a National
bank currency, redeemable In
bonds, unless you have a permanent
debt to furnish the bonds. (Applause.)
The Trusts.
The Republican party does not discuss
the trust question. "When the Republican
party brags about existing
conditions, Just remember that the
trust condition is the main condition
that It brags about. (Applause.) The
Republican party has been in power for
nearly four years. You have a Republican
President: you have a Republican
attorney general; you have a Republican
house, and you have a Republican
senate, and yet more trusts have .been
organized In the last three and a half
years than were organized In all the
previous history of the United States.
(Applause.) If a Republican says that
a trust is a good thing, you tell that
riepuuiicuu umi ujs ivjjiuuihuh jumform
denounces the trusts. If a Republican
says that the trusts are a bad
thing, you ask him what his party has
done to destroy the trusts. The trust
question has grown in importance
since the last election, and to-day men
realize what the trust question means
who did not realize what it meant four
years ago. If you have any doubt
about this you go to some traveling
man, who, In 18Jj6. thought that all we
needed was a Republican administration,
and then lost his Job because his
house went Into a trust, and'he can tell
yoM something about the trusts. You
ask the laboring man who works for a
trust and sees the trust suspend production
In order to keep prices up, and
throws the burden of keeping prices
up upon the Idle employes, who must
wait until the surplus is worked off.
of the trusts, made a speech at Boston
a year ago last May, and the papers
said he bad an exceedingly sympathetic
audience, composed almost exclusively
of Boston bankers. He went on to defend
the trusts, and one of the gt;eat
advantages that he saw in the trusts
was, that whenever there was a strike
In any one factory the trust could close
down the factory and do the work
somewhere else. Of course, you^people
here know nothing about such a thing,
but you may some day. (A Voice?
"Down at Benwood, at the Riverside,
we do.") Know about it now? Whereever
you And that the trusts have closed
down a factory because of differences
with employes, or for any other
reason, you might ask the employes
what they think of the prosperity arguj^
ment and the full dinner pall doctrine.
Isn't it strange that any man who
works for wages can be so blind as not
to see that when a trust controls a
great branch of Industry, every man
who works In that line of. buslnsss Is at
the mercy of the man who stands at
the head of the trust? Isn't It strange
that any man who works for wages
does not see that? And yet, when you
talk to people about the trusts, the
only answer the Republicans make Is
that there is great prosperity, but it Is
always somewhere else?In some other
"Full Dinner Pail."
Tou can read the papers and see that
all the talk that you see In Republican
speeches about the enormous prosperity
of the country la not true. If It were
tVue, you would enquire what brought
on the prosperity. Suppose It was all
true, and suppose you could trace It all
to a Republican administration. There
are questions that are greater than a
full dinner pall, and when a Republican
tells you that because your dinner pail
Is full you ought, to vote the Republican
ticket, tell him he Is making an
argument that ought to be addressed to
an animal that knows nothing but to
eat, and has no higher ambition. When
a Republican says that the only question
to be considered Is. whether you
have enough to eat, he Is dragging the
lnhnrlni* msn rinwn to thf? IpvoI of thn
animal. When the hog trough Is filled,
the hog Is satisfied; when it Is empty he
squeals. That in the Republican Idea
of the laboring man. I believe that Is
a slander upon the working man. I believe
that the laboring man Is Interested
In-our Ideas of government, and
the laboring man can see far enough
ahead to realize what militarism would
mean for him.
To Destroy the Trusts,
The gentleman asked me what 1
would do to destroy the trusts. I have
been arguing the trust questjon for
some time, and I have given remedies.
Eight years ago I Introduced a bill providing
that whenever It was determined
-In court that a trust controlled the price
of any article upon which a tnrlfC wis
laid, that artlclH should go on the free
list. 1 not only want to destroy thr? ad
vantage which a trust can secure under1
legislation, that Is given for the purport
of protection; i want to g6" further j
than that. J want to destroy every prl-'
vate monopoly In the United States. I
believe that It is possible for Congress
to so legislate that every corporation!
doing business outside of the state of I
its origin can be prevented from becoming
a monopoly, nnd the plan i sur- i
gested is this: Let Congress provide |
that whenever uny corporation organized
In any state wants, to do business
outside of the state It must go to the j
federal government and get a llcenso |
which will enable It to do buslnc*i outside
of the state of Its origin, but It
must do business In every state according
to the laws of the state In which It

away from the state any powers it now
has, but I want Congress to add a remedy.
Before thLs license ia given I want
two conditions complied with. First, I
want the water to be squeezed out of
the stock pf the corporations. Tin
Laboring man cannot water his capital,
which is labor; the farmer cannot ivater
his capital, which is the farm, and I do
not believe that a corporation should be
permitted to water Its stock and then
to collect the dividends upon its fictitious
investment. I want to squeeze
the water out of the stock. There will
be a flood for a while, but there will be
honest corporations afterwards. Let
the corporation show that it has not attended
and Is not attempting to
monopolize any branch of business or
production of any article of merchandise.
If you had such a law and sucn
a license, given on such conditions, I do
not believe there could be a monopoly
In this country. :
He Illustrates.
Let me Illustrate. Suppose you had a
law, and the sugar trust applied for a
license. It could no't show that It did
not have a monopoly. The evidence
would show that the sugar trust controlled
93 per cent of the output of
sugar. It could not do business out of
the state of its origin. It would have
to dissolve, and then we would have
honest competition between factories.
So with all these trusts. I believe you
could destroy them. But if you found
that these conditions were not sufficient,
you could add conditions until
you had enough, because I believe that
the trust is hostile to the interests of
our people, and we must destroy the
trust or It will destroy the Independence
of the individual citizen. Now, I have
suggested two remedies If anybody
has a better remedy, I will be .glad to
substitute or add that remedy to the
one I have proposed.
But, my friends, I want you to stop
for a moment and see what the' tendency
of this concentration of wealth
means. It means that the small man
wm not nave nis cnance in tne race of
life. The Republican party to-day
stands for a system of concentrated
wealth that shuts the door of opportunity
in the face of the young man, and
condemns him to perpetual clerkship
under some great monopoly. I believe
the system is bad, and I do no: understand
how any young man can fail to
see it. I do not see how any parent can
fall to see the danger that menaces his
The trust question is only one of the
great questions, and I believe there are
questions greater even than the trust
Proceeding, Mr. Bryan took up :hn
subject of "imperialism," and drew a
vivid bugaboo picture that was suQlclent
to frighten women and children,
but had no terrors for men of sens?.
Imperialism, declared Mr. Bryan, with
dramatic gestures, strikes at the very
foundations of. our Institutions. He
called attention to the growth of the
army idea; four years ago an army of
25,OCO was sufficient in this republic of
ours, but In 1SS8 the President asked in
his message to Congress for an increase
to 100,000. He predicted that in the
event of Republican success, a permanent
army of 100,000 men would be legislated
through. In this portion of liU
speech, the demagogue in Mr. Bryan's
composition showed to great advantage,while
his vaunted patriotism went
to the rear at- a gallop. "Where is the
laboring man's interest In this army?
He furnlshts the private soldiers and
pays the taxes but has no interest in
what the army does." As though every
American has not the greatest interest
in protecting the flag from dishonor at
home and abroad. He added: "The
army is usedi abroad to secure trade,
and at home to suppress the discontent
that ought to'be done away with by
legislation." Very sensibly,' Mr. Bryan
did not mention the Chicago riots, and
the calling out of the Federal troops by
that great and good Democrat, Grover
Prominent Republicans had said that
there is no such thing as Imperialism.

Mr. Bryan vwas very eloquent in
speaking of the treaty with the ruler of
the Sulus, but he was discreetly silent
anent hl? part In securing confirmation
by the senate of the treaty that foisted
the Philippines upon the United States.
He also showed a touch of temper when
a spectator asked him about the treatment
of the colored man in the south by
the Democrats, nnd said the Republicans

policy of the administration,

McKinley," and there was a movement
In the crowd to get at the young man,
but Mr. Bryan said sharply: "Never
mind, my friends. If you can bear that
fellow all the year around I can bear
with him for one night."
The speaker next alleged with a show
of sincerity that America was drifting
towards monarchy, and had the grace
to add that ht? supposed his audience
believed him prejudiced. He practically
called all Republicans monarchists,
