Throe thousand people awaited him. Ho was escorted to a llatcar by L. H. Salsbury, wholntroducedhlm as the "Black Eagle of Nebraska." Mr. Bryan said that later In the cam paign he expected to visit Michigan more fully, because he expected Michi gan's electoral vote, and he wanted to become better acquainted with the peo ple who were to help In securing a ma jority In the electoral college. He urged the citizens to vote strictly ln accord ance with their best convictions, recog nizing the responsibility of suffrage. Said he : "I expect to lose the votes of many Democrats who believe the gold standard necessary to the country's welfare. But if I must lose Democrats who want the gold standard to prevail until foreign nations come to our relief, I think I am entitled to the support or every citizen of every party who be lieves the Americans able to work out their own salvation." A sudden change in the atmosphere had some effect on Mr. Bryan's voice, and It was huskier than usual when he spoke. He made a few remarks at Hud son to about a thousand people, and again addressed an enthusiastic throng at Hillsdale. Charles. It. Sligh, candi date for governor of Michigan on the fu sion ticket, accompanied Mr. Bryan from Toledo to Hillsdale. Owing to the train stopping at Jones- Villc a hundred yards from where 1500 • people were waiting for lt, there was a wild scramble of men, women and not a few small boys to reach the candi date's car before the train started again. It was the same story over again at Qulncy, and the crowd, several hundred strong, came down the track in a bunch, shouting excitedly. The reception to the candidate at Coldwater, Mich., was full of Interest. Two thousand people were there, packed closely about the rear platform of the train. They were very enthusiastic, and cheered with a will. Mrs, Bryan was Introduced to the crowd, and in response to cheers she be gan distributing the bouquets that were given her at various places along the route.

A special train was in waiting for Mr. Bryan at Sturgis, Mich., and in this he proceeded to Elkhart. His reception at Sturgis was enthusiastic, and he made a speech. IN INDIANA The Candidate Received With enthusiasm Everywhere ELKHART, Ind., Sep. 3—Mr. Bryan remained here until 4 oclock and ad dressed 4000 people here this afternoon. The party arrived by a special train furnished by the Elkhart reception com mittees a few minutes past noon and after a dinner at a" hotel, Mr. and Mrs. Bryan were escorted to the Island, a pleasure ground adjacent to the city. A brass band led the parade. Governor Matthews rode beside Mr. Bryan and presented him to the assemblage. In the course of his remarks Mr. Bryan said: "It gives me great pleasure to enter the state ot Indiana. We, ln the west, have always looked upon Indiana as a friendly ground and to her people as peo ple of congenial spirit. We are entering upon a campaign which Is drawing out the Intellect of all the people. I have not In all my Journey from Nebraska to the sea, found a single .lukewarm person I have found some against us, but every body was for or against us—no Idlers anywhere. (Applause.) "I find circulating here a little slip printed upon an appropriate color — yellow—(laughter.) It says: 'I, the un dersigned, (a blank,) tn the employ of (blank)—that Is a very appropriate blank, becausse the man who issued this considered the employer blank. (Laughter.) I (blank,) an employe) of the (blank) railroad. It ought to ; b,e blank, blank, blank, blank, (great laughter) hereby make application for membership in the Railway Men's Sound Money club.' "Why don't they say gold club? Why do they attempt to con ceal the word gold under the euphonious nume of sound money? (A voice, 'They are ashamed of It.') Tes, I be lieve that is the reason. 'And do here by pledge myself to use my vote and in fluence,'—there is one good thing in this slip. If they attempt to tell you how to vote, point to this and tell them It is my vote and not yours, 'and do hereby pledge myself to use my vote and influ ence for the defeat of free coinage at the forthcoming election." Pay attention to this: 'Believing that such free coinage of sliver would be injurious to my per sonal Interests as a wage earner as well as disastrous to the United States as a nation.' "If the wage earner ought to sign a statement declarnig the free coinage of silver Injurious to his personal interests, I want to ask you why the advocates of the gold standard who are engaged in other kinds of business do not make some statement in regard to their busi ness? Why do not the.syndicates who have been bleeding the United States treasury, make application for member ship ln a club and declare that the free coinage of sliver Is Injurious to their personal interests? (Applause). "Why do not the hondholdlng classes ln their applications state lt would be Injurious to their personal Interests? Why don't the money changers and the attorneys of these great trusts and cor porations write in their applications that the success of the Chicago ticket would be injurious to their personal in terests? (Applause). They want it un derstood that the laboring man is in fluenced by personal interests, but these great leaders of the gold standard are simply Interested in the public weal. "There Is a great difference between those who advocate bimetallism and those who advocate a gold standard. Ask a farmer why he wants bimetallism and he says because it would be good for him. He is not worrying about some body else. He has troubles enough of his own. It Is the same with a laboring man or a business man or professional man. They say they cannot prosper unless the great producing classes on THE HERALD LOS ANGELES, FRIDAY MORNING* SEPTEMBER 4, 1896.—TEN.PAGES. which everything rests also prosper. They all want bimetallism because it is good for themselves as well as for the mass of people. Ask a financier why he favors the gold standard. Will he tell you because It is good for him? Tou never heard one of them say lt. (Laugh ter). They want something which will help somebody else. They say they want lt, so that when he gets a dollar — when he gets a dollar—(great laughter) he will get a good dollar. They wantltbe cause lt Is good for somebody else. Tell them that these people whose Interests they plead are willing to risk the effects of bimetallism. When you find a man who is always feeling for your watch, see that he does not reach lt. (Great laughter). I am afraid that some of our opponents add the crime of hypoc risy to the sin of avarice. "There are principles which underlie the money question—principles which you must understand before you can enter ln to the discussion of the money question; and the first great principle is that the value of a dollar depends upon the number of dollars. Tou have to learn that scarce money means dear money, and you can change the purchasing power of a dollar whenever you change the number of dollars. Our opponents disputed some of them, but no writer on political economy will tell you that volume is Immaterial. Now, when the value of a dollar depends on the number of dollars, how can you raise the pur chasing power of a dollar? By legislat ing some of the dollars out of existence. Let your demand for money Increase more rapidly than the supply of money and dollars will rise ln their purchasing power. Dollars are the creatures of law. No dollars can go Into circulation except through the channels of legislation. I know that there are some people who say that the government has not any thing to do with money, that money ex ists independent of legislation, but I re peat the assertion that there Is not a dollar In existence In this country to day but the dollar which finds Its au thority ln the 'be lt enacted' of the gov ernment. (Applause). Now, my friends, I assert that when the government pro hibits the making of a dollar by an Individual, then the government as sumes the solemn duty of creating enough dollars for the people to do busi ness with. (Applause). You tell me that the government ought to keep the indi vidual from creating dollars for his own use and then refuse to create, the dol lars which he needs. My friends, tfliat doctrine has not any support outside of Wall street. (Applause). No man dares to defend that doctrine before a community like this, and yet the very people who Invoked the law of 1873 to strike down a part of the people's money, now deny the right of the people to Invoke the people to replenish the cur rency of the nation. (Cheers.) "I know that whenever we express an opinion on the money question that we subject ourselves to the contempt of the New York financiers." (Great ap plause). Taking up the argument that free coinage would result In a flood of silver bullion in the country. Mr. Bryan en deavored to show that such a stae of af fairs could not result in injury to the people or to the country. After compar ing at great length the claims and promises of the Republican and Demo cratic platforms, SJr. Bryan assured his audience that he endorsed every word of the Democratic declaration. His speech was frequently interrupt ed by uproarious applause, and though the speech was unusually long, Mr. Bryan was urged by the enthusiastic crowd to "go on," when he showed any inclination to bring his address to a close. AT SOUTH BEND. SOUTH BEND, Ind., Sept. 3.—ln a solid mass on an open square, the "gov ernment lot," 25,000 people congregated tonight to hear William J. Bryan speak on the money question. Mr. Bryan reached South Bend this evening and was received by a tremendous gather ing at the railway station. Tonight he and Mrs. Bryan left the house of Hon. Benjamin F. Snlvely, Democratic can didate for governor of Indiana, whose guests they are, and were the central figures ln a torchlight procession com posed of a number of Democratic clubs from, this town and places In Indiana and Michigan, which conveyed them to tho government lot. Excursion trains from nearby places brought In immense crowds during the day. Large contin gents came from Laporte, Logansport, Michigan City, Elkhart, Buchanan, Valparaiso and Kalamazoo. Some of the sliver clubs brought bands. On the platform with Mr. Bryan were Mr. and Mrs. Snlvely and Senator Blackburn of Kentucky. The latter addressed a large meeting her this afternoon. Just after Mr. Bryan began to speak the premonitory symptoms of a stam pede occurred in the audience through the efforts of many of those on the out side to secure points of advantage. The exterior pressure caused the solid hu man mass to sway and surge like bil lows on the ocean. Many people were carried off their feet and considerable excitement was the result. Mr. Bryan ceased speaking and waited for the dis order to pass. But the swaying contin ued, and Mr. Snlvely arose and made an appeal for order. He spoke so calm ly and coolly that the crowd ceased swaying to listen, and the disorder passed away. Mr. Snlvely presented Mr. Bryan to the audience. Mr. Bryan was greeted with cheers. After a complimentary allusion to the Democratic candidate for governor Mr. Bryan launched into a discussion of the silver question. There was much noise and uproar ,in the outskirts of the as semblage, and Mr. Bryan was compelled to desist while Mr. Snlvely appealed for quiet. Resuming, Mr. Bryan said hla oppo nents had been In the habit of pro nouncing the money question too deep to be considered by the masses of th-3 people. In his opinion our form of gov ernment was based upon the theory that the American people have not only the patriotism but the intelligence neces sary to sit ln judgment upon any ques tion which might aria*. He relied upon American people ln the present emer gency.' Here the uproar became deafening and Mr. Bryan again sat down while Mr. Snlvely pleaded with those who were shouting and crowding for positions to keep quiet. When Mr. Bryan resumed he said he was not very hopeful for bringing the advocacy of bimetallism to those who may be peculiarly benefited by a rise In the value of the dollar, but he believed there were some who took lt for granted that the gold standard was good for them and who did so under mistaken Ideas. It was to these that he desired more particularly to talk. He added: Now, the first question to be considered is, what is an honest dollar? We hear peo ple talking about honest money. What do they mean by honest money? Did you ever hear an advocate of the gold standard give the definition of an hon est dollar? I will tell you the definition which you generally hear. It Is this: That an honest dollar Is a dollar which when It is melted loses none of Its value. That Is what they tell you Is an honest dollar. I want to say to you, my friends, that the man who gives to you that defi nition ot an honest dollar has yet to learn the first principle of monetary sci ence. (Great applause.) An honest dol lar is the dollar which retains the same general purchasing power yesterday, to day and forever. (Applause.) That would be an honest dollar. Pur chasing power Is the test of honesty. A dollar which rises in purchasing power is just as honest as a dollar which falls ln purchasing power. (Great applause.) The only difference Is that when the dol lar rises lt helps one class of citizens. When lt falls it helps another class of people; and when you find a person l who Is always afraid that a dollar will fall ln Its purchasing power have found a man who, being Interested in having dol lars grow larger, Is of course in favor of a gold standard. When you find men who tell you that they want a dollar of the highest purchasing power, you may set it down that you have a person who be lieves ln legislating for the power-own ing classes who profit by rising dollars. But the definition which I have given to you—the definition given by the average advocate of the gold standard—that the honest dollar Is the dollar which, when melted, loses none of its value. y that definition overlooks one Important thing in the dollar. Let me illustrate: Sup pose all the world should join In a gold standard and make our dollar the unit under the silver standard and the next day the nations of the world should get together and decide that there was too much money In the world and decide to gather up ninety-nine hundredths of all tho dollars ln the world and sink them In the ocean. What would be the result? You have one dollar where you now have one hundred dollars, and according to the definition of the gold standard men you would still have honest dollars, be cause If you melted one of them lt would not lose anything of its value. (Ap plause.) If, however, you owe a man a thousand dollars and you have to go out and sell property ln order to get a thous and dollars to pay your debts, you have to sell about one hundred times as much property to .get the money to pay your debts. Would they be able to convince you that was an honest dollar? Take the other side. Suppose that after the na tions had agreed upon the gold standard that somebody had found enough gold to coin into one hundred times as much money as we have today. Where we have a dollar we would then have a hundred dollars. It would be honest money, ac cording to the definition of the advocates of the gold standard. "But suppose you owe a man $1000 and pay him $1000, when there are 100 times as many dollars, the dollars you pay to him would not buy as much property as they did before. Would you be able to convince him that you had paid your debt in honest dollars? Oh, no; he would have a different idea of honest money than he has given you." Referring again to the claim that gold 13 "honest money," because nothing Is lost In melting or remeltlng the coin. Mr. Bryan asserted that this was due to the fact that the government ad mitted gold to free coinage at its mints. This characteristic of gold, he argued, was given to it by law, and yet the gold advocates did not recognize the fact. Were the same law to be applied to sli ver, like gold, to be admitted to the free coinage at the mints, the value of the white coin would suffer no more by the melting process than does gold. Mr. Bryan insisted that lt was dis crimination:-In favor of the money of the rich man. Next Mr. Bryan ridiculed the claim that has been put forth, that If all the gold were to be driven dut of circulation by the free coinage of silver, fifteen years would be required to coin enough silver to take its place. Mr. Bryan won dered how long the American people would be in erecting more mints should they be needed. He added: "But there is another proposition, or a part of that proposition: A man who made this statement wound up by sav ing that during these fifteen years mon ey would be so scarce that a silver dol lar would be harder to get, und a higher priced dollar, measured by rToperty, than a gold dollar Is now. That is the worst of all absurdities. Just think of it Why, you know that If silver would drive gold out, it would be because sil ver Is cheaper than gold. I say, that If you could Imagine such a contingency, if you could think for a moment that silver would be dearer than gc f I, would not gold come back to drive silver out? (Applause.) And yet you will be told, and seriously told, that under the free coinage of silver you are going to have cheap money that will be dearer than the money you now have. (Applause.) Just as you are told that you have a flood of money and a scarcity. I speak of this, my friends, to show you the confusion of ideas that prevails among those who think they are the only peo ple who can think on the money ques tion." ■ ■Nad Suddenly CHICAGO, Sept. 3.—Thomas A. Brough ton, president ot the Amerlean Coal Mining and Transfer company, and well known among coal dealers all over the country, died suddenly today of heart disease. THE VETERANS AT ST. PAUL Formally Welcomed by the City's Mayor WALKER'S ANNUAL ADDRESS Strongly Recommends Abolishment of tbe Color List Buffalo Chosen for the fleeting Next Year. The Election of Officer* to Be Held Today Associated Press Special Wire ST. PAUL, Sept. 3.—There was a big audience ln the Auditorium today when Mayor Doran made a formal address of welcome on behalf of the city to the G. A. R. Past Department Commander Castle made a brief response. After the doors closed on the execu tive session, the opening ritual was gone through with, committees appointed and reports of officers presented. In his annual address General 1 N. Walker, commander-in-chief, G. A. R., said: "The total membership of the Grand Army of the Republic is 385,406, of which 340,610 are in good standing, and 42,511 are carried on the suspended list for non-payment of dues. The decrease In this list during the past year is 7,089. The gain by muster during the year was 13,407. The total loss during the year was 11,406, of which number 7,923 were by death, a decrease of 75 from last year. General Walker recommends the payment of all pensions by mall direct from the department at Washington, which, he says, would save hundreds of thousands of dollars over the present method of maintaining pension agents In every state. Gen. Walker says: "The great success that has attended the Woman's Relief Corps has caleld into existence other woman's organizations, and these nat urally antagonized the older organiza tions ln the affection of veterans, until we have the humiliating spectacle of comrades who fought for four years in the same fight, and whose comradeship has been cemented In fifty battles, now at this late day ln life ruthlessly torn asunder because their wives happen to belong to different woman's organiza tions. It is human nature, and this state of affairs will continue until the encampment shall take some action that will Anally settle the matter." He adds that he hopes the report of a com mittee appointed by him to see if the trouble cannot be adjusted will produce good. Regarding the color line, the report says: "This administration Inherited from the former one the unsettled question of the organization of a colored post at Austin, Tex., over tho protest of the department of Texas. The application for muster, however, was withdrawn. If this action had not been taken, and the applicants were worthy of membership ln our order, the post would have been mustered. I shall never forget that the only men who aided and shielded me ln my escape from a rebel prison had black faces. This is a serious problem in southern departments, but no honor ably discharged veterans should be discriminated against on account of the color of his skin. There must be 6ther and valid reasons for his rejection." He indorses the introdj .Hon of mili tary instruction in the public schools. The matter of the next encampment was next in order, and the claims of Buffalo were presented in a brief speech byComrade Mayor Smith of that city. Past commander-In Chief John M. Pal mer made a motion that the hoice of the next location be made contingent on the securnlg of a one cent rate from rail roads, but no vote was taken on the motion. After the presentration of Buf falo, a recess was taken until 2 oclock, at which hour no other names were for mally presented, the friends of Denver preferring to get the help of all con cerned for securing the encampment of 1898. On roll call Buffalo was decided on for the encampment of 1897, Denver re ceiving, however, a small vote. The recommendation of the commit tee In favor of the Pickler bill to revise the pension legislation was adopted unanimously. The bill has passed the house and is now pending before the United States senate. A recommendation was adopted fav oring the union of the W. K. C. and the ladies of the G. A. R. as one organiza tion, under the Relief corps. The propo sition to allow the Sons of Veterans to attend G. A. R. meetings brought out three reports, the majority favoring it under certain conditions, one minority report opposing the whole proposition and the other favoring certain modifi cations in the plan. The rest of the session was unimport ant, the election of officers not coming up until tumorrow, being made a speciai order for 9:30 oclock. The action of New York in caucus voting by a large major ity for John C. Llnehan of New Hamp shire, is considered significant and has had much effect ln bringing about the chief development of the day in the con test. Major T. S. Clarkson is the other chief candidate. The ladies of the G. A. K. and the Wo man's Relief Corps were In session all day but devoted thier time to making re ports. They will elect officers tomorrow. The Daughters of Veterans held busi ness sessions and elected officers as fol lows: President, Miss Alice Ingraham of Chicago; senior vice-president, Miss Julia Croft, Cleveland; Junior vice-pres ident, Miss Anna Smith, St. Louis; chap lain, Mum Stephens, Allegheny, Pa.; treasurer, Miss Ida J.

S.-jTohtt M. Palmer of Illinois and Simon Bolivar Buckner of Kentucky, two white-haired veterans of the war, rival commanders of the blue and gray, were nominated to day by the national Democratic conven tion for president and vice-president on a brief but emphatic platform, which re pudiates the doctrines enunciated by the Chicago convention, Indorses Presi dent Cleveland and his administration ln glowing terms, declares for the gold standard, tariff for revenue only, liberal shipping laws, currency reform, civil service and economy in public expendi tures. The spirit that animated the convention was contained in this declaration of the platform: "The Democratic party has survived many defeats, but it could not survive a victory won ln behalf of tho doctrine proclaimed In its name at Chi cago." And so, in the language of Mr. Hammond of Louisiana, this convention placed in the hands of other nominees their banner and bade them fling it forth, "skyward and seaward, high and wide." The real work of the convention was aoon transacted when it was reached, but the delay in reporting the platform gave opportunity for a series of eloquent and stirring speeches. The attendance was larger than on yesterday and the enthusiasm was great. Col. W. C. Breck inridge, the famous blue grass orator; DeWltt C. Warner of New York, H. A. Hammond or Georgia, F. W. Lehman ol Missouri, W. D. Bynum of Indiana, and Comptroller of the Currency Eckels of Illinois were In turn called to the stand and stirred the enthusiasm to a high pitch. When the platform was at last brought In, shortly before 2 oclock, after the con vention had been in session three hours, it was read amid an almost continuous storm of applause, and was adopted unanimously with \it a word of debate. "When the nominees for president were railed for, it was apparent that Palmer would be nominated over his protest, as the opposition to Bragg had concentrat ed upon him. These two names were the only ones presented to the convention. It was known that a message from Presi dent Cleveland had reached the conven tion announcing that he could not enter tain for a moment the suggestion of his own nomination, and his decision was at once accepted as final. Before the states were called for nomi nations, Henry Watterson was taken out of the list by Mr. Carroll of Louisiana, who from the platform conveyed to the convention a message from the Ken tucky editor in his retreat In the moun tains of Switzerland. a|r, .Va^tewfjptl.
