Bryan said ln part: Ladles and Gentlemen: For a few minutes only I shall occupy your atten tion, because a large portion of my voice haa been left along the line of travel, where lt Is still calling sinners to repent ance. (Great laughter.) lam told that ln thla city you manufacture more ag ricultural Implements than are manu factured In any other city ln this coun try. I am glad to talk to people who recognize the dependence upon the farmers of this country. I have had oc casion to talk to some who seem to Im agine that tbe harder up they make the farmers the better they would be off. I am glad to talk to you who recognize that the dollars which you receive are earned by those who convert the natu ral resources of this country into money; those who till the soil and from Its fertility springs forth this national primary greatness. As a matter of fact, farmers and laboring men are the foun dation of society. (Cheers.) Upon .this foundation is built commer cial classes and the financier acts as a sort of roof over the whole thing. Tou can take off the roof and put on another but you oannot destroy the foundation without ruining the whole building. (Applause.) Upon prosperity the great producers of wealth whom we call the masses as distinguished from classes depends all the prosperity of this city. If you have a gold standard you legis late tha value of money up and you leg islate property down. Our opponents are trying to throw upon providence the faults of our condition. If a farmer complains that he Is not making much out of his potato crop, they tell him lt Is due to the spud bug. If he is not making much out of his corn they tell him lt is due to the army worm. If he is not making much out of his wheat crop they tell him It Is due to the chinch bug. But let me tell you the goldbug is destroying more crops than all of them. (Great laughter.) The farmer Is the most hopeless vic tim of circumstances of all the produc- ers of wealth. When he plants his crop ln the spring he does not know whether there Is going to be flood or drought, whether there la going to be hot winds or cold hall. He takes his chances, and I assert that when he has taken more chances than anybody else and survives them all and the calamities that visit his farm lt is not fair to drive him between the bulls and bears of Wall street and let them take from him what is left. (Great laughter and applause.) The Democrats of this state have done well against great odds. In spite of great Influence they declare for the res toration of the money of the constitu tion. Tou met your opponents ln open conflict, and by superiority of numbers overcame them. What do they do ' The very people who have been calling all silver Democrats "Populists" are trying to read us out of the party, when they found they could not read us out. Instead of goijig out of the party and giving up the name—we have proven our light to it—they try to go out and take the name with them, and call us anarchists because we don't go with them. (Applause.) I understand the gold Democrats by resolution declared their emblem should be the hickory tree. We have heard about Satan stealing the livery of heav en, but we have never before seen men try to use the name of that great hero and statesman to undo all he tried to do. (Cries of "Good.") Talk of Andrew Jackson belonging to the goldbug Democracy! (Laughter.) Go back to the time of Andrew Jackson and whom did he have arrayed again st him? The very men who, after try ing to use the Democratic party for private gain and having failed, are now trying to elect the Republican candidate for president by nominating a gold standard Democrat (Cries of "They can't do it.") They take a hickory tree for their em blem! Why don't they get something appropriate? Why don't they put upon their ballot the picture of an owl? (Laughter.) Or if they don't like the owl, take the mole. It is a slick animal and works underground all the time. (Great laughter and applause.) But they ought to spare the sacred memory ot the man who was the hero of New Or leans, and whoso resting place, the Her 10,383 This ts-the-sworn dally average of The Herald. mitage. Is the Mecca of all who still love Democratic principles. (Great ap plause.) AT KENTON. TOLEDO, Ohio, Sept. 2—William J. Bryan again demonstrated that it made no difference whether his voice was hoarse or not, by making more speeches than he has for several days. He made long speeches at Springfield, Kenton and Ftndlay, and tonight spoke again ln this city. The party left Columbus this morning and arrived at Springfield at 10:30, where the nominee made a twenty mi. .ute tala. Tn« next stop of any con sequence was at Kenton, where Mr. Bryan addressed 6000 citizens of that county. The address was made in the park of the little city, and was well re ceived. The crowd was made up mostly of farmers, who cheered the utterances of the nominee heartily. Bryan endeavored to impress his au dience with the fact that the issues of the campaign were serious and far reaching, and he told them that when they had studied the money question their action would be determined by their sympathies, by their hearts. When they had studied the money question. he said, he expected the support of every one who believed that all men were created equal, and that the government ought not to be a respecter of persons. At the same time, he expected the oppo sition of every man who thinks it is the duty of the government to take care of the great corporations and leave the masses to take care of themselves. Mr. Bryan added: "I am willing that each man shall have whatever influence his neighbors are willing to give him, but I object to any man using his official position to coerce othtefpeople who have opinions of their own." (Great ap plause.) I have had my attention called ln this state to an interview given out by the president of a great railroad to the em ployes of that road, furnished to the men when they get their pay. I want to say to you that if the object of the managers of the road was merely to Instruct the employes on the money question, we have entered upon a new era when the employer becomes school teacher, set ting up a school of political economy and becoming Instructor for all those who work for him. (Applause.) But If the object of that circular was to Intimate to the employes that if they wanted to hold their positions they must make their views conform to the views of the employers, then lt Is not a new era, but merely a survival of the old idea that might makes right and power used with out regard to conscience or public good. I want to remind the employes of the railroads that in this state they have the Austra'lan ballot, whose blessings they did not secure through the aid of the presidents of railroads. (Applause.) I have had men tell me they were compelled to join Bepubllcan clubs and wear the insignia of Republicans. I shall not complain if they do, I appre ciate the condition of the man who feels his wife and children tugging at his garments and who knows that want may stare in the face of those whom he loves if lie dares to assert the sovereign right of an American citizen. (Great applause.) J recognize the embarrass ment of his position. I will not ask him to do anything which may endanger that position. Let him wear the but ton if he will. Let him put his name on their club Hat if he must. Let him contribute to the campaign if he will, but let him remember there is one day ln the year when he is his own master and he can use a pencil as he pleases. (Tremendous applause and cheers.) Here the platform on which Mr. Bry an was standing partly collapsed, the west end of It going down under the weight of those standing on it. When order was restored Mr. Bryan con tinued; My friends, the crowd which found its way to this platform is but a drop in the bucket to that great crowd that is try ing to get upon the Chicago platform. These platforms may be frail; they may break down, but the Chicago platform is built upon a solid rock and can hold all that come. (Applause.) From Kenton the members of the party took a special car for Toledo. The first noteworthy stop was at Flndlay, where the crowd of 4000 gave Mr. Eryan a hearty greeting. He was Introduced to the crowd by the chairman of the state central committee. Mr. Bryan's brief speech at Findiay provoked great enthusiasm. He confined his remarks to the effect of the appreciated gold dol lar "upon the business of the country," and assured his audience that should he be elected, the gold standard would not remain the standard of this country one moment longer than he could help to get rid of lt. (Applause.) There were short speeches made at Bowling Green and Welker, and stops were made to allow Mr. Bryan to shake hands with the crowds at Cygnet and Arlington, where crowds of farmers were gathered. The train arrived in this city a little after 5 oclock. and Mr. Bryan was taken to the Boody house. AT BELLFONTAINE. KENTON, 0., Sept. 2.—Mr. Bryan said in his speech at Bellfontaine the crowd seemed to be afflicted with yellow fever. Fully half of the people there wore big yellow labels inscribed "McKinlay club." Men and women bore them, and waved them in front of the Democratic candidate. There were plenty of Bryan shouters in the crowd, and these cheer ed, while the brass band they had en gaged played frantically in his honor. Mr. Bryan spoke as follows: Our opponents started out by saying that they were as good friends of bi metallism as we. but we have driven them to open from secret advocacy of the gold standard, so that whenever we come into a town where there are Mc- Kinley men they have the name printed not upon a white and yellow paper, but on yellow paper. (Great applause.) We find that there is evidence of what is known as yellow fever. It differs from the old in that the old yellow fever killed the men who had it, while the new yellow fever kills the people who do not have it. (Applause and cheers.) We are all glad to see courage anywhere, and when I find a man who believes that this nation Is not great enough to govern Itself and must appeal to for eign nations for aid, I am glad to have THE HERALD ! LOS ANGELES. THTJBSDAY MOBNTNG. SEPTEMBER 3, 1896.-TEN PAGES. him put lt on his hat. (Great applause.) 1 am glad that ln this campaign the people who are supporting the Chicago platform do not get down on their knees and appeal to kings and princes to leg islate for the American people. (Ap plause.) ' AT TOLEDO Thirty thousand people la a conser vative estimate of the acres of solid hu manity gathered ln High School square this evening to hear Mr. Bryan's ad dress. Forty thousand would probably be nearer the correct figures. The audi ence was very enthusiastic and at times lt became a deafening uproar. Mr. Bryan spoke ln part as follows! The day on which you cast your bal lot may determine for a few years or forever, the financial policy of the United States. That day Is the most important that has come to the United States ln time of peace since the sign ing of the declaration of Independence. ; want you to remember that when the great financial magnate says he must leave his party because his party has declared for the restoration of bimetal lism, I want you to recognize that his Interest ln money Is no greater than yours. If that man Is willing to desert that party of a lifetime ln order to main tain a gold standard from which he de rives profit, I want to ask you if through out the land the tens of thousands and the millions of small home owners will not be Independent enough to break party ties, and march ln solid phalanx for the protection of their common country. (Great applause). If a foreign fleet should cast anchor upon your shores and announce that they Intended not to take all your prop erty but to take one-half, what person here would be willing to allow that fleet to proceed without protest? And yet the people who intend to strike down one-half of all the standard money of the world, simply mean to do with you and your property what the fleets of the world and the armies of the world would do if they came to destroy one half of all your possessions. I simply quote what has been said by the hundreds before me when I tell you that the establishment of gold as the sole standard of the world means a de crease In the value of all your property and in the virtual increase of all your obligations. More than that, lt means the stagnation of business, the paralysis of industry, more tenants upon the farm in place of the home owners, more la boring men on the streets and fewer at work. They may gloss lt over and "sound money" tt, but lt is "sound money" that means the sound of the wall of distress. (Great applause.) They may call lt "sound money" if they like, but they cannot make dishonesty hon esty by trying to change its name. Continuing; Mr. Bryan entered into a comparison of the Republican and Democratic platforms, and he insisted that despite the many declarations of purpose, the money question was the only question before the people. He added: "If there Is a man lnthe United Stales who believes the opening of our mints to the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 would be destructive to the welfare of the p. jple of the United States, I do not want his vote, because I intend, so far as within me lies, to open the mints at the very first opportunity. (Great applause.) I have never believed that a man should place his party above his country- 1 have believed that a man serves his party best who loves his country best, and I am willing to give a free release to every Democrat whose conscience and judgment cannot sup port the policy for which I stand. Ido not want you to think because I am only a little older than the constitution requires, because I am classed among those who are called young, that there Is to be any childish play ln this cam paign. (Great applause.) There Is to be work ln this campaign, and I don't know but what a young man may be able to work as hard as an older one. But anyhow, I will promise you young men who are here and are thinking that some time a nomination for the presi dency may fall on you, I will promise you if elected. I will not recommend any change in the constitution whicn raises the limit of age. There are three classes o fpeople, yea four. Interested in the restoration of bi metallism. There is the farmer. His toll, his muscle, his sweat, his brain convert the natural resources of his nation into material wealth, and unless he can sell what he produces for more than the cost of production he cannot ailord to produce lt. The condition of the farmer, who ought to be the independ ent person among all, has grown worse and worse until the farmer's sons arc being driven Into the cities to contest for any job with the people living in the cities. (Applause.) Laboring men are Interested in the restoration of bi metallism. Why? Because bimetallism gives more opportunities for labor, more constant employment, and that is the first thing the lagborer desires. (Ap plause.) The business man is Interested in bimetallism because he makes his money out of those to whom he sells. If farmers and laborers cannot buy he cannot sell. And If he cannot sell, he cannot buy from the wholesaler or the manufacturer. The business man is finding out that he needs free silver. Some of them have been letting their bankers do their thinking, and they let them adopt a gold standard without knowing its effects upon themselves. But these business men who have been relying upon the local bankers find the local bankers rely upon the New York bankers, and the New York banker re lies on the London banker, and a few grant bankers hold strings to the brains of men who ought to think for them selves. (Tremendous applause.) The professional man, the doctors, the lawyers, you men who belong to the professions, live upon the producers of wealth. You cannot destroy the pros perity of those who toll without under mining the foundation upon which you stand. There are a few interested in tho gold standard. Who are they? Show me a man who has an office for life at a fixed salary and I will show you a man who has a pecuniary advantage in a gold standard. Because that salary becomes larger every day. But if you show me a man whose salary depends upon bust ness conditions I will show you a man who will favor bimetallism before he loses his salary or his family are turned out of their house. (Applause.) A man who has large fixed investments which draw a fixed amount of money annually la Interested ln the gold standard be cause the dollars which come Increase ln purchasing power and wealth, therefore Increase. But there Is another class which exerts a more potent Influence upon legisla tion than the investment class, and that Is the few money changers, the few men living in the great money centers, who have their wealth ln dollars and who loan those dollars out, not on long time contracts, but short time contracts, or ln the negotiation of great stocks and bonds. I fthey can make it necessary for th government to sell bonds at 104% when they are worth 119, so money shav ers are able to profit out of the extremi ties of the government, you might Just as well go to the wolf and ask him to guard the welfare of your flock of lambs as to go to the money changers and ask them to prescribe a policy that would be good for the American people. (Great applause.) I want you to take this question and think It over for yourselves. No person has a right to dictate how you shall vote. It was given to you by our consti tution and our laws for your own pro tection, and the man who dares inter fere with our free exercise of the right of suffrage has yet to learn the genus of our constitution. (Great applause). SOME LONDON WISDOM LONDON, Sept. 3.—The Chroicle, in the course of an editorial on politics in the United States, dwelling upon the high character of Mr. Bryan, says: We watch the contest with equanim ity, because we believe that even if Mr. Bryan is elected, the economic con sequences will be less serious to for eign nations than was at first antici pated, although English investors may suffere severely at first. The struggle Is very Interesting to England, because Mr. Bryan's arguments might be Mr. Balfour's. If Mr. Bryan advocates re pudiation on an exalted scale, Mr. Bal four's views mean repudiation on a mod erate scale. Where we question the wis dom of Mr. Bryan's campaign Is ln its applacabllity to the troubles of the American commonwealth. Things have not come to such a pass in America as to need a policy of semi-bankruptcy. FUSION PLANS No Af-reement Retched —Adjournment Taken / to Snturdav SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 2.—The Pop ulist-Democratic fusion committees ad journed today until Saturday without coming to a decision as to what is to be done. The nomination of a Democratic candidate from the Third district is awaited. This convention will be hqld at Vallejo Friday. It is stated that there will be no perfect fusion arrangement made. Barlow of the Sixth district, said his resignation does not go unless fusion is effected in every district in the state. Castle and Maddox of the Sev enth district are ln the same state of mind.

ALBANS, Vt„ Sept. 2.—Revised returns of yesterday's election from the I fourteen counties of the state give Grout, Republican, 53.076, and Jackson 13,983, a Republican plurality of 39,093. MAJOR M'KINLEYS MAIL Burdens tbe Backs of Toiling Carriers TELEGRAMS NOT COUNTED For Fear It Might Occasion ■ Fatal Surprise flora Rejoicing Oyer One State Than There Will Ba Over the Hall el Ninety-nine Associated Press Special Wire CANTON, Ohio, Sept. 2.—Ever since Major McKinley returned to Canton from Columbus he has received at his home an Immense amount of mall and telegraphic matter. But the conditions this week surpass that of any time since the campaign opened. Heavy as was the flood of telegrams and letters on his nomination, lt does not approach that which has followed his letter of acceptance. The mail can no longer be handled in the ordinary manner of neat ly tied packages, but is now delivered in sacks, and the number of telegrams, were they counted, would be surprising in the highest degrea Such time as can be spared from call" ers and visiting delegations is being by the major devoted to personal attention to these messages. He has signed as high as 1360 letters of acknowledgement In one evening, and still those requiring attention continue to accumulate. To day came a flow of telegrams on the Vermont result, which everywhere In Republican circles seems to be accepted as a true index of the result to follow in November. A few of the telegrams on this subject follow: Senator Redfield Proctor of Vermont, wiring from New York—Vermont rati, lies the nomination of our candidates. Campaign too short to make it unani mous, but it is rapidly traveling that way. John G. McCullough, North Benning ton—Vermont was not satisfied to scotch the snake, but hartJtilled it outright. The November landslide Is already here. The Republican majority Is by far the big gest in its history, either during the war or since. Indications are that it will sure ly amount to 35,000 and probably more. It Is the precursor of the November landslide. Gov. Woodbury of Vermont—The free men of Vermont send greetings of 35,000 majority to you, the exponent ot protec tion, prosperity and sound money. Ver mont has set the pace. Let the column be kept well closed up, J. 11. Manley wired from Augusta, Me. —Vermont has covered herself vith glory. Maine does not propose to bo outdone by Vermont. ANOTHER TEMBLOR Th* Main Island of Japan Visited—Meagei Detail a YOKOHAMA, Sept. 2.—Much alarm is felt here over a meagre report of a great earthquake which occurred in the northeast province of the main island of Japan on Monday evening. The town of Rukogo has been entirely destroyed and several other towns severely dam aged. Many persons are reported to have been killed by the earthquake and a large number injured, while a multi tude suffered Bevere losses by damage to property. The places visited by the earthquake are the same as those devastated by the terrible earthquake and tidal wave of June 15 last, when a large number of towns were wiped out,the estimated loss of life was 30,000. The provinces of Ec kuesan and Rikuchu along the coast from the Island of Jonkasan northward, were the principal sufferers today. The recollection to the havoc to human life wrought by that convulsion causes grave anxiety as to what further re ports may show of the results of Mon day's earthquake. On the same day a typhoon caused ex tensive damage ln Southern Japan. THE HEALEYITES ATTACKED As Disruptionlsts Who Employ Every Dirty Expedient Leaders of Pactions Invited to Resign, That the Irish Party nay Unit* on One Man DUBLIN, Sept. 2.—The Irish national convention resumed its session at 11 oclock this morning. There were ru mors of war on every side and little prospect of the harmony which the convention was organized to bring about. Rev. Father Flynn moved the ap pointment of a committee of arbitration, composed of home and foreign dele gates, Instructions t odraft rules and a platform to unite all factions of the Irish party. The motions was greet ed with enthusiasm. P. T. O'Connor took the floor. His eloquence aroused the first breeze of the day. He read Father Flynn's original resolution .suggesting the committee be selected from three sections of the Irish parliamentary party to propose a basis of union, which has since been amended and which was believed to have been written by Timothy M. Healy, M. P. O'Connor fiercely attacked "the dis ruptionlsts. who are fighting the con vention with every dirty expedient." O'Connor's attack on the Healylites was received with deafening cheers from the Dillonltes. Canon Murnane of London objected to O'Connor's language which, he said, was defeating the object the convention had in view, 11; bring ing about of _unity among the Irishmen of all sections. A scene of great dis order followed until Murnane was ruled out of order. O'Connor then resumed his remarks and declared the only way to kill dis- sension was to crush lt by the "united determination of the people," and urged the convention to give the Irish leaders means of uniting the Parnellltes with the Irish party. He appealed to the del egates to uphold the constitutional methods. »" The discussion of Father Flynn'a res olution, the first test of strength be the Dillonltea and the Healyites, was long and bitter. The resolution was finally withdrawn ln the interests of harmony. Later the convention adopted resolu tions recording the opinion of the con vention that lt was of importance that nationalists and representatives ln par liament should be a reunited one favor ing home rule, in which every supporter of that policy would be cordially receiv ed and treated according to his capacity to render service to the common cause. Edward Blake, M.P., moved a resolu tion recognizing as an essential element of an effective party the hearty co-ope ration and cheerful subordination of each Individual member of such a party. Mr. Blake spoke at length on this sub ject and during the course of his re marks asserted that a change was needed as otherwise there would be a collapse of the Irish parliamentary party. Continuing he said: "We must abandon the ship or reor ganize the crew. The situation is In tolerable and must be ended." Mr. O. H. Higglns of Boston, Mass., supported Blake's motion ln a speech It hich was full of defense of England, and the resolution was eventually j adopted. John Dillon, chairman of the Irish par liamentary party, who received an ova tion when he arose to speak, moved the usual home rule resolution and called upon the men "whose names were the Shibboleth of factions" to meet in the autumn, abdicate as leaders and choose EX-GOVERNOR ROSWELL P. FLOWER OF NEW YORK a new leader to whom all can give un broken support. Adjourned. NO MORE PETTY BICKERINQ Will Disturb the Peace ol (he Soldier Boys The National Oaard la to Be Made Popular and Put In Very Much Better Shape SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 2.—Major- General James returned from Stockton today, after having a long conference with Gov. Budd Tuesday evening In re gard to national guard affairs. Gen. James said that everything had been settled to the entire satisfaction of the governor, and that he was ready to be gin making the needed reforms ln the guard. He said: "Everything will go on smoothly from this time. There will be no more bicker ings nor petty jealousies. The gover nor Is the commander-in-chief, and his orders will be executed. It is his inten tion to make the guard popular, and I will carry out his desires. "The men will be protected and given all the rights they should enjoy under the law. I expect that in a year from now we will have twice as many men ln the guard and it will be in far better shape. All thesoldiers will be provided with proper arms, ammunition and equipment as soon as possible, and they will be compelled to take proper care of them. No more waste nor neglect will be tolerated. "No orders regarding the management of the national guard will be Issued ex cept from th c division headquarters. The guard will be conducted as near like the regular army as possible. In re gard to matters relating to the property of the guard, the adjutant general, as quartermaster-general, will have charge, as the control of the property suplpied the guard rests with the quartermaster general.

Senator Palmer, who called the body to order, termed lt the first convention of the na tional Democratic party, while others referred to it as the Democracy who held its convention in 1892. Every scat in the space reserved on the floor of the dele gates and alternates, was taken and tha galleries, except on the upper balconies ln the rear of the hall, where the band was located, were comfortably well fUled'without being crowded, while tha chairs in the rear of the platform reserv ed for the distinguished guests, were nearly all occupied. The decoratlona were brilliant and lavish. There waa an usually large number of ladles ln the galleries and in the chairs back of tha stage. The big New York delegation of seventy-two members perhaps at tracted the most attention. In tt were such conspicuous men as Governor Flower, the temporary chairman of tha convention: ex-Secretary of the Treas ury Fairchild, ex-Mlnlster to Turkey Strauss, General Tracy of Albany, Hor ace C. King, Colonel K. Fellows, Perry H. Belmont and John DeWitt Warner. From the old Bay State there was Dr. Everett and Godfrey Morse: Maine sent C.

Thompson; Wash ington, Hugh C. Wallace. There was plenty of enthusiasm and demonstrations were numerous. Tha delegates cheered at the sight of prom inent men, in fact, anything and every thing. The "What's the matter" man was there and kept them busy. Every reference to Mr. Cleveland was the sig nal for a scene during which men cheered and waved whatever they could get their hands on. Miniature flags found their way out of mysterious re cesses and were wildly waved on every occasion. The convention held two ses sions, but got no further than effecting the permanent organization. Perhaps the most Important action taken by the convention today waa tha adoption of a recommendation to make the organisation permanent and to em power the national committee appointed
