Evening Session—Address by W
Bourke Coekran of Now York: address
by William J. Bryan of Nebraska.
Workingmen, trust adherents, advo
cates of the single tax, theorists and stu- !
dents of political economy, were heard
today at the third day's session of the
trust conference held here. Some of the
speakers spoke in vigorous t"rms against
industi ial, financial and transportation
combines. The problem in its relations
to the workingman was discussed. The i
long list of prominent speak
. rs announc
ed for the day served to draw the larg
est crowd of the conference.
The committee on resolutions named by
the conference yesterday heid its first
meeting at 9:30 this morning and organ
ized by electing ex-Governor Luce of
Michigan secretary, and Ralph Easley
secretary. The committee adjourned to
meet again at 2 p. m.
The events on the programme for to
day's sessions were overshadowed by the
announcement that in the evening Col
onel Bryan of Nebraska and Bourke
Coekran, the eloquent head of the New
York delegation, would speak from the
same platform. The political prominence
of the two orators gave rise to a general
feeling that the night session would be of
more political than economic interest.
The address by Louis F. Post, the New
York advocate of the single tux, was en
thusiastically cheered. Thomas J. Mor
gan spoke on "The Trust from the Social
ist Point of View." He was followed by
Henry White, secretary of the United
Garment Workers of America.
M. M. Garland, billed to speak on an
iron and steel worker's view of the com
bination, and E. E. Clark, grand chief of
railroad conductors, on the programme
for an address, were not present when
Chairman Howe called their names, and
- ................
John W . Hayes, secretary of the Knights
of Labor, was requested to deliver his j
address. In part he said: j
"I maintain that these great combina- :
tions are an assault upon the inherent
and constitutional rights of citizens; that
the real and vital advantage to be gained
is the despotic control over labor. Vio
lence is not the only means of making
conquests and enslaving people and it
can be proven beyond any question that
the methods of the trusts are the meth
ods of the invader and the ends to be
accomplished by instigators of trusts are
exactly those intended to be accomplish
ed by the arrangements directed by a
military genius. Taking this view of the
trust, which I hold is the correct one, I
11 Hivii 1 iiuiu 1» i
assert boldly that they are the enemies
", f , socl , ety and as sueh should be de
stroyed as any common enemy and the
financial phase of the question should not
come into the subject for consideration
as the liberties of the people are far
above the mere question of money "
Bryan and Coekran.
Chicago, Sept. 16.—The Record today
The announcement that W.
Bourke Coekran of New York and Wil
liant J. Bryan of Lincoln, Neb., would
discuss trusts from the same platform in
Central Music liait tonight for a while
yesterday threatened to bring about an
open rupture in the conference. Reports
that had their inception when it first be
came known that both orators would
address the conference crystalized during
the day in a rumor that each would in
sist on the right to speak iast.
Just as the Tammany orator took his
seat in the New York delegation at the
opening of the afternoon session he was
called on by John W. Ela of the civic
federation and Dr. Albert Shaw The
powwow terminated with the adjourn
ment of the trio to a long distance tele
I phone station, where connection With
I Lincoln. Xeb., was promptly secured.
: Mr. Kla did the talking. He told Mr.
Bryan that Mr. Coekran wanted to know
his views about their joint appearance
inasmuch as the committee had decided
to "play" them at the same time. Mr.
Ela said it was the Tammanyite's desire
to speiak last. Mr. Bryan said that was
his sentiment, and Mr. Ela left in little
doubt that the- Nebraskan's wishes
were dangerously near an ultimatum.
Then Mr. Coekran assumed the magnani
mous and said he would defer to Mr.
Bryan's wishes and would be governed
by the committee's decision.
The official programme, as finally ar
ranged and given out, announces that
the Tammany orator will be beard before
the democratic leader from Nebraska is
given the- floor.
No Dreyfus Meeting.
New York, Sept. 15.—There will be no
mass meeting in this city to protest
against the condemnation of Dreyfus.
Efforts were made to arrange such a
gathering, but the men who were asked
to take a leading part declined to do so
and expressed the opinion that the move
ment was a mistake. Consequently the
promoters of the affair decided to aban
don the idea. Former Mayor Strong,
who was asked to preside, Former Secre
tary of the Interior Bliss, President Gug
,_____ ___________________________________
j genheimer of the municipal council and
j other men of standing told the advocates
1 of the mass meeting plan that they
would do the Dreyfus cause more harm
1 than good by holding it, and that they
'could not consent to participate in it.
j It became evident that there is very
| little basis for the talk of boycotting the
j Paris exposition because of the second
verdict against Dreyfus. Representative
men expressed the view that the entire
French nation should not be condemned
because of the action of a military clique,
and that the feeling aroused by the Drey
fus verdict should not be allowed to in
terfere with the exposition.
"I think agitation tending to arouse
bitterness between this country and
France because of the Dreyfus trial
places us in rather a ridiculous position,"
said Cornelius N. Bliss. "My opinion, like
that of most other Americans, is that a
great injustice has been done, but talk of i
! don't think they will do any good at this
i secretary of the board of trade and tr,
. ..
boycotting the Paris exposition because !
of it is foolish." ■ c
"We should pay no attention whatever ! f
to the Dreyfus case," said Former Mayor
Strong. "That is a matter of their own ,
over there, and what the judges have de
eided should not interfere with the expo
sition in any way."
Wm. F. King, president of the Mer
chants' association, is strongly opposed
to any boycott of the exposition.
President Guggenheimer of the council
said: "I do hot approve of the agitation
of the mass meeting plan because I
time. We all recognize the fact that a j
great wrong has been done, but I believe i
that agitation will not help matters any." j
"My first thought when I heard of the !
verdict was that we ought to retaliate on ;
the exposition," said Frank S. Gardiner.
portation, "but after all the exposition is
a business matter and our merchants are
to show goods there for their own benefit
rather than that of France. Therefore it
would be foolish to hold bac k."
Opening Up Nicaragua.
Managua, Nicaragua. Aug. IS.—(Cor
respondence of the Associated Press.)—
General Estrado has resigned as gover- ■
nor general of the Atlantic coast of Ni- ,
earagua. Ex-Supreme Judge Bunilia, I
who is friendly disposed toward the gov
ernment and the people of the United ;
States, has been nominated as his sue- j
eessor to reside at Bluefields. Dr. Pedro
Bermudez, à graduate of the University ]
of Pennsylvania, has been appointed sur- !

The congress of Nicaragua has granted '
a concession to Jose Gomez, a prominent
politician and president of congress, to ■
navigate by steam power to Rio Coco, |
near the northeastern boundary of Ni- 1
earagua and the largest and longest river ,
in the country. All the rich placer gold :
mines of the Cape Gracias and Prfin

Otis Wants Staff Officers.
Wa fhing ton, Sept. 15.—General Otis
lias cabled to the war department a re
quest for additional staff officers for ser
vice in the Philippines. He asks for one
additional judge advocate« general, two
assistant adjutant gen*«« als, two inspec
tor generals, eight quartermasters, nine
commissaries of subsistence and two en
gineer officers. The adjutant general has
called upon the heads of these different
bureaus to designate officers for this

of tho staff asked for before the
next active campaign begins is recognized
by tire department.

Showing the Status of
Transvaal Affair.
In Denying: Some of the Statements
Made By the British Secretary—
Manchester Guards Land at Cape
town Today.
London, Sept. 15.—The blue book con
taining the last Transvaal dispatch of
Chamberlain relating to matters which
led up to the dispatch being sent was is
sued today. The text of Chamberlain's
note is identical with the dispatch as
cabled the Associated Press September
The only important feature revealed
is the telegram from the British high
commissioner, Sir Alfred Milner, dated
August 31, referring to the commercial
distress and saying:
"I am receiving representations from
many quarters to urge the imperial gov
ernment to terminate the suspense. Brit
ish South Africa is prepared for extreme
measures, and is ready to suffer much
more in order to see a vindication of
British authority. It is a prolongation of
negotiations, endless and undecisive, that
is dreaded. I fear seriously there will be
a strong reaction of feeling against the
policy of the Imperial government if mat

Increasing difficulty of doing this and of
(,le unmistakable growth of uneasiness
a,J<HU tae present situation, and of a de
sire to see it terminated at any cost
should be failing my duty."
Other lengthy dispatches from llie Brit
ish high commissioner art« published, but,
they only reiterate the outlander claims
regarding the franchise und the commis
sioner's ideas regarding the propositions
already made. The blue book throws no
new iight on the situation as it is today,
except to show the commissioner's pa
tience.has reached an ebbing point.
A published interview with President
Kn ger, said to have taken place at Pre
toria, is far more important. He is quot
ed as saying:
"i have tried all along to pince aliens in

I i

oally as the Burghers. Chamberlain«
; have not kept my promises. This,'
thundered Kruger, "I deny. '
Continuing, Kruger Is reported to have
added :
"The aliens of the Transvaal have tho
same commercial rights as the Burghers,
and have always enjoyed them without
interference. I wanted to let them have
the same political rights, but they would
not avail themselves of thin. ] n my opin
ion there is no cause whatever for war.

Prints a special dispatch from New Cas

that the Boers will concede Chamber

stated 3,000 men will he dispatched to the

to confirm the pessimistic views of the
Times correspondent at New Castle. Tim

ment arrived at Capetown today. They
marched through the streets and were
wildly cheered. Later they re-embarked

South American Alliances.
Rio Janeiro, Aug. 17.—(Correspondence
of the Associated Press.)—An evening
paper, Aunoticia, personal organ of Dr.
Campos Salles, president of the republic,
publishes today under the heading of
"South American Alliances" a
article, as follows:
"Telegrams from Rome to
Ayres and thence to Rio de Janeiro af
firm that it is currently reported in tin
notable t
continental capitals that in ease of the ,
reported alliance of republics of Latin- j
America being realized this fact would «
have the frank support of Italy, Austria i
Germany and France. Such an'alliance! !
they suppose, could only be engendered
to oppose the United States, whose won
derful progress astonishes them and
whose daring energy and spirit of ad
venture and audacity they dread. Such
the European point of view and on this
point we do not need to investigate the
value of these rumors to be sure that
they correspond in fact to the sentiment
and feeling of continental Europe in re
gard to the relations of the great Ameri
can power towards tlie* powers of an in
ferior order that constitute the remaind «
ot the continent.
'«The alliance or tln.se nations or at
leasl of ilie principal ones, against the
Anglo-Saxon colonies would therefore b ■
sure to find the aid and sympathy of the
continental powers. Bui, if th s should
be made effective it would only be the
first step on the way to the re-coloniza
tion, at least morally, of ail Latiri-Amer
icans. Such, then, is mu« situation. Either
we must suffer tile effect of the ambitions
American expansionism or we mus:
turn to Europe and beg aid against
Americans. Such, at least, it appears to
nrjany statesmen and writers of both con
tinents. As a rule we are not optimists
but in the present ease we do not feei
ourseives in the least embarrassed by
this dilemma. Without denying that the
United States will attempt to assume in
America political and commercial pre
dominance, we firmly believe that in or
der to thwart them in such designs it is
sufficient for the American nations to
have a reasonable sentiment of their own
rights and independence and for their
statesmen to be able to give expression
in a systematic way to such a feeling.
"It would be, perhaps, requiring too
much of peoples of so rudimentary a civ
ilization and with a national conscience
such as ours that intervention should be
come a reality, here or elsewhere, and
that thus the door be thrown open for
them to enter. In such an emergency or
in some similar one, our only remedy
would be to ask European aid and that
aid certainly would not be disinterested
and platonic. Against this supposed pos
sible« danger we are reminded of forming
alliances in imitation of Europe. For
reasons too lengthy to give we believe
such an alliance utterly impossible. And
not only that, but we firmly believe that
such an alliance would be pregnant with
harm to all those countries and that it
would only serve to irritate the United
States against them and by a reactionary
check nut them at the mercy of Euro
pean intrigues and ambitions."
Certain of Pardon.
New York, Sept. 15.—A dispatch to the
world from Paris says Commandant ('ar
riéré. the government commissioner <»f
the Dreyfus court martial at Rennes, lias

"Dreyfus is certain to be pardoned very

I anybody else. In any ease Dreyfus will
j not have to go through a second degrada
tion, of that I am certain."
