' Jacob Snyder, secretary of the congressional
committee, in a neat speech,
Introduced Will Caldwell as chairman
rtf the meeting. He gave a "brief talk
on imperialism, ilustratlng the Inconsistency
of the Democratic party in opposing
that doctrine and in a few words
of eulogy Introduced Congressman B. B.
: The captain said he did not come
there to Indulge In any eloquent platitudes.
He Invited any person to challenge
any statement he made If they
thought they were not true. He read
some culllngs from the Register and
easily disposal of them. This paper
had said that Judge Freer and Senator
Burrows In their speeches at the Opera
House had said nothing of imperialism,
but were content in discussing the tariff
and money questions. The question In
1896 was how to restore prosperity. After
the people had ferreted it out they
voted for William McICiniey. the advance
agent of prosperity. The question
now was how to retain prosperity.
Bryan was the last man on God's green
earth that should light Imperialism.
The speaker said he was not going to
dodge the issue of imperialism and
trusts, but would discuss them from the
point of fact and experience. There
was no such thing in this country as
Imperiuiism. It was simply a blind of
the Democrats to covpr nn nnnthPf nh.

Continuing, Captain Dovener Bald
there should be no law against trusts.
The first trust we ever formed in this
country was the sugar trust, made possible
by tlio Wilson bill. Bryan was a
member of the ways and means committee
that framed that document. This
committee, he said, ought to have been
called the committee on mean ways.
This bill had spread ruin and distress
throughout the country and created
militarism. Three millions of men were
thrown into idleness,starving and hunting
work. Bryan had the impudence to
tell the worklngmen what a wonderful
stagnation of business there was in this
country and at the same time lloore
Jackson declined to run for Congress on
the Democratic ticket because there
was too much nrosnerUv and htiRino?!?
In this country and he did not have the
time. We wanted more money instead
of Moore Jackson.
Captain Dovener then showed up the
Inconsistency of Bryan denouncing the
Republican policy in the Philippines
when he, by lobbying in the senate, hud
Influenced the Democratic senators to
vote for the Paris treaty that provided
for the purchase of the islands and was,
therefore, himself directly responsible
for our possession of the Islands. The
Democrats pretended to B&- warm about
trusts when they had a great ice trust
to keep them cool. The speaker referred
to the Democratic cry of ruling
without the consent of the governed and
explained how Florida, Louisiana and
all the western states had been purchased
and otherwise acquired without
the consent of the governed. New Mexico
and the District of Columbia had
representatives in Congress, but they
had no vote. He asked if they were being
governed with their consent. He
also referred to the Democratic disfranchisement
of the negro In the south
and wanted to know if they were being
governed with their consent. After Ihe
captain had concluded with a strong
argument In justification of the government's
policy In the Phlliplpnes, he was
cheered to the echo.
Mr. Arbenz Talks.
The chairman then introduced John
Arbenz as the next speaker.
Mr. Arbenz said he considered
himself presumptlous in
endeavoring to talk after so eloquent a
speaker as Captain Dovene'r ailil lie
would be brief. His.address was replete
with Illustrations that put the crowd
In good humor. He said the Democrats
referred to every act of the Republican
party as unconstitutional. In 1776, whvn
otir forefathers established a. coiitederate
government their cry was "Unconstitutional."
It was the same when the
Republicans established roads, when
they enacted a tariff fostering industry,
when they carried out the late war and
when they established a sound currency
Mr. Arbenz concluded his address
amidst applause and was followed by
Abraham McCoIloch, candidate for the
legislature. - He said the Republican
platform had no paramount Issue, every
plank in it standing on an equality anil
when they fought for one they fought
for all. He referred to Bryan as a
farmer and said that lie, too, was a
farmer. He said If Bryan; ns he claimed,
raised forty bushels of oats to the
acre and netted u per cent, he proved ho
was a prosperous farmer. Any farmer

Party of Sixteen Tails.
Frank W. Nesbltt, candidate for prosecuting
attorney, was then Introduced.
He said It was the first time In four
years he had been given an opportunity
of addressing a North "Wheeling audience.
Political parties represent great
policies. There were two great partite,
one standing alone and the other with
sixteen tails to Its kite. Each party
represented the principles set forth in
Its platform. One Btood for American
IaTmii*. .sound mnnpv colli stsnrinrr? and
expansion of our great and glorious
country. The other stood for free trade,
free silver and little one-horse America.
We were to choose between these two
as there Is no possibility of any uf the
other parties winning. Mr. Necbltt's
remarks, though brief, were eloquent
and his closing remarks were greeted
with great applause.
Henry Steck and S. S. Smith, candidates
for the legislature, were the last
speakers and after they concluded,
Chairman Caldwell proposed three
cheers for McKinley and Roosevelt.
They were given lustily arid with :t determination
that presages Republican
victory at the polls this fall.
