TO SOLONS Notable Address Delivered By the Distinguished Nebraskan to the Montana Legislators. GOOD GOVERNMENT HIS THEME Speaker Tells of the Struggles Which Have Taken Place to Se cure and Maintain Liberty. Helena, Jan. 11.—For four hours to day the members of the hous-' and sen ate, as well as several hundred specta tors, many of thorn women, wait' d for William Jennings Bryan, who, about 4 o'clock, was escorted to the rostrum by a joint committee of the house and senate and introduced to a crowd eager to listen to the man who advocates thorough Americanism arid not only a perpetuation of such, hut reforms that will carry out all those sentiments and intensions contained in that portion of the constitution which demands a gov ernment of and for the people. Mr. Bryan's address was ithe feature of the session. I'.oth house and senate convened tut 10 to dispose of immediate business and be free to receive Mr. Bryan and give him undivided atten tion. A delayed train prevented Mr. Bryan from reaching the city until 4 o'clock. He was at once driven to the offi'-e of the governor, and from there escorted into the house, where he was Sheeted with tempestous applause by the assemblage, which remained stand ing until he was seated. Mr. Bryan said, in brief: "There are two .theories regarding public representation. One is that representatives are elected by the people to think bit- them; the other, that they are elected to carry nut the wishes of the people. The more these theories are compared, the more im portant it is that the representatives of the people should have a proper idea of their duty. In my opinion, the peo ple should and do think for themselves «nd it Is the duty of their agents, such as you gentlemen are, to carry out their wishes; and if the occasion should arise when a representative of the people cannot see his way clear to carry out the wishes etxpresed when he was elected by his fellow citizens, be then should resign and give way to men who can. Battles have been fought and mil lions have died that their children and their children's children should have a good government. ''The platform on which you were eUected is binding and those who adopt ed that platform and elected you on it recognize their righlt to demand that you do consider it binding. "The embezzlement of powelr is as grievious a crime as the embezzlement of money, and it is only when there are greait interests on one side, and com mon man on the other that there is danger of bias. Corporations of the class most commonly known do not ad vance the public weal, but are one of our greatest menaces. Legitimate cor porations need not fear for injustice in fair exchange. The natural man can protect himself against natural man, but he cannot protect himself from the main-mate giant." In referring to interests such as in surance companies and big financial In stitutions, Mr. Bryan, said one man might be a director in a dozen com panies, all of which were doing busi ness together. "The Bible says no man can serve two masters, and I am just old-f&shloned enough to believe that no man can serve two masters." The speaker touched on railroad and county and municipal affairs, deplor ing the issuance of perpetual franchis es and the giving of bonuses to indus tries to locate in a community, as he believed the country had reached that degree of substantially where such cus toms were unnecessary. "Mr. Bryan's reference to the fact that be could say things now he could not a few years ago and his reference ,to the initiative and referendum were greeted with hearty laughter and ap plause. He expressed the hope that we would taie one more leson from Great Brit ian, where a man, when he has accum ulated enough to live comfortably, turns his attention to public life and upbuilding of his nation. Here in Amer ica, Mr. Bfyan said, we are too busy trying to grasp the almighty dollar, and he stamped in disgrace the man who would not perform his civic duties. "In a political campaign you will find more naen looking for money than men who are willing to aid with funds the cause of the people and of ths right." Mr. Bryan further spoke of the many bhfntgs President Roosevelt has done to '* bring the people to a realization of their citizenship ami whet duties were incumbent upon them and said he was glad to pay a tribute to the president for his sincerity along these lines, and do so with much more safety to him self than as a democratic candidate, which statement was followed by an outburst of laughter and hand clap ping. Mr. Bryan closed by saying that the only way a man could acquire wealth honestly was by giving sonnftihing in return. The stability and prosperity of this country does not rest upon dol lars, but upon the carrying out of ideals, the accumulation! ideas, the ex ution of a man's unalterable purpose in advancing to his fellow man and his country all that is good to him and seeking, constantly to increase that good for the glory of those who will follow him. Mr. Bryan gave a lecture ait the Au ditorium tonight before a capacity au dience and later was given a reception at tlv Montana club.
