grams from Mr Bryan I utterly re

confer either with Mr Bryan or Mr
I Jones as to who shall be the nominee
of this convention Loud applause
I That is a matter we have the right to
determine for ourselves It is the relief
I of millions of people that is at stake
I Now therefore I am here to do but
I I one thing and ask the consideration
i i and attention of this convention to that
i I one thing I know i I know anything
that I am proceeding on the right lines
I You know how long I fought in that
behalf Listen now to what I have to
j say I have been your standardbear
e and I know I was undeserving
1 first sixteen years ago in 1880 and
twelve years afterwards Unsolicited
you made me your standardbeersr in
1892 I did my best I did all I could
do with the means at my command to
support your principles among the peo
ple Now I stand here at this juncture
of our partys history and I shall pro
ceed to deliver my convictions deliber
ately upon the condition of affairs and
I ask that you will pardon me although
though a intemporaneous speaker for
more than forty years and permit me
to read from manuscript what I have
t say
General Weaver said In that mid
night discussion between Brutus and
Cassius concerning the contemplated
battle at Phillipi Brutus urged that
their cause was rife their legions brim
ful at the height and ready to decline
Said he
There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which tune taken at the flood leads on to for
Omitted all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and In miseries
exclaimed And then in dramatic climax he
On such a full sea are we now afloat
And we must take the current when i
Or lose our ventures
For twenty years we have been
pleading with the people to espouse
the sacred cause which is at stake in
I this campaign We have constantly
I urged through good and through evil
i I report that our principles are more im
i portant than party associations were
above all considerations of private for
tune or the petty and feverish ambi
I tions of men We have thus far suit
1 ed our action to our words made
through five presidential campaigns
stretching from 1876 to 1892 You cor
rectly estimated the purpose of old par
ty managers and events have sus
tained every specification in your in
dictment against them Millions of
honest men within old party ranks
were deceived
But not a single one of your pickets
has ever been caught napping or ta
ken by surprise To your devoted ef
forts is largely due the revival of eco
nomic learning in this country which
has enabled the Democratic party to
I assume the present admirable attitude
1 Your work now promises much to
mankind and is about to break forth
I into complete victory for the industrial
masses Though oft repulsed by the
I multitude whom we would have liber
ated though crucified in return for our
1 kindness yet through it all we have
steadily confided in the righteousness
I of our cause and the final good sense
I of the people We still believe that
I this nation has a mission to perform
i which bad men will not be permitted to
destroy and recent events indicate
that the nineteenth century is not af
ter all to close with the friends of free
dom despondent in the western hemi
This country has recently witnessed
a new pentecost and received another
baptism of fire The recent conven
tion at Chicago sounded a bugle call
for union which can neither be mis
understood nor eo unheeded In its
patriotic utterances and action i swept
away all middle ground and opened
the way to a formidable organic al
llance They not only made union
i possible thank heaven they have
From the beginning our organization
made party feeling subordinate to prin
ciple We will not here reverse our
selves and refuse to accept victory now
so easily within our reach We will
not refuse the proffered assistance of I
at least three million free silver Repub
blicans simply because they have
shown the good sense to come with
an organized army fully equipped and
manned for battle Let them have I
their own divisions and army corps
The field of glory Is open to all com
petitors who are fighting for the same
The Populists have already shown
their prowess in many engagements
during twenty years of struggle I
our allies can strike sturdier bows at
plutocracy than we can if they can I I
scale the battlements of the gold pow I
er more gallantly than our old veter
ans and are able to plant their colors
one foot nearer the citadel of the en
emy than we can ourselves let every
Populist cheer and support them in
their heroic work We will all march
under the same flag keep step to the
I same music face the same foe share
in and shout over the same triumph
I We cannot be mistaken concerning
I the real issue involved in the struggle
I of the present year I is between the I
gold stanadard gold bonds and bank
II currency on the one hand and the bi
metallic standard no bonds and gov
ernment currency on the other
between enforced idleness destitution
debt bankruptcy and despair on the
1 one side and an open door of oppor
tunity under just laws and normal
conditions on the other The situation
presents the mightiest civic question
that ever convulsed a civilized nation
The conflict can neither be postponed
nor avoided In the name of the suf
I fering people I affirm that this is no
time for dissension nor party divisions
The supreme hour for action has ar
rived I we would be victorious we
must mace common cause with the
heroic men who dominated the Chi
cago convention No other course is
either prudent or desirable We are
not asked to abandon our party nor
I would I be wise to do1 so I it is i to
be preserved we will In judgment be
i compelled to take the course which I
am about to indicate The silver Demo
crats have lined up an organization
Now let the Populists free sliver Re
publicans and the American Silver
party do likewise From an embattled
square Impenetrable t the assaults
of the confederated gold power After
due consideration in Which I have fully
canvassed every possible phase of the
canvne have failed to find a single
good reason t justify us In placing
The exigencies of the hour imperatively
tively demand that there shall be but
one I would not endorse the distin
guished gentlemen nailed at Chicago
I would nominate them outright and
make them our own and then share
Justly and rightfully in their election
The situation is a striking verifica
tion of the old adage that The path
of duty is the path of satety Take
this course and all opposition will prac
tically disappear in the southern and
western slate and we can then turn
our attention to other parts of the
field Take any other and you en
danger the entire situation and
strengthen the arm of our
common ad
I you allow the present happy junc
ture to pass all the heroic work of
twenty years will be thrawn to the
winds Our guiding hand will
wi disap
pear In the momentous conflict just
when It should be stretched forth to
steady the ark of our covenant We
u 1 M
< 1
would prove to the world that we are
devoid of capacity to grasp great op
portunities and lacking in strength to
grapple with prodigious emergencies
The people have a gallant champion
in the field who Is leading a revolt
Every oppressor every plutocrat in
two hemispheres has turned his guns
upon him The subsidized organs have
openly proclaimed that he must be
crushed by any means at what ever
cost The confederated monopolies
have lain aside their parties and their I
politics and are marching in hot haste
against him Let us signal to him to
hold the fort that we are comingand
then hasten to his relief Gentlemen
I want to say to you in all earnestness
that assailed as is this gallant knight
by the sleuth hounds of the money
power of the world you may deliberate
here as long as you please but you
cannot prevent the people from rush
ing to the support of their recognized
defender and leader I you will not
say the word they will break over all
restraints and go themselves leaders
or no leaders and may God bless them
for so doing
Therefore in obedience of my high
est conceptions to duty with a solemn
conviction that I am right I place in
nomination for the presidency of the
United States a distinguished gentle
man who Ie I be remembered has al
ready been three times endorsed by
the Populist party of hiS own state
once for representative in congress
once for United States senator and
only last week for the presidency I
name that matchless champion of the
people that intrepid foe of the corpor
ate greed that splendid young states
man William J Bryan of Nebraska
When General Weaver concluded by
naming that splendid young states
man William J Bryan the conven
tion broke loose and cheer followed
cheer Delegates jumped to the chairs
and flags handkerchiefs hats and
state guidons were
Through a side entrance four men ca
ried a big yellow cross four by eight
feet surmounted by a crown of thorns
On I were inscribed the eloquent words
with which Bryan closed his brilliant
speech a Chicago A big crayon por
trait of the Nebraska statesman was
also carried into the hall Cross ban
ners and state guidons were carried
frantically about the pit and then
with the cross In the lead they were
carried to the stand where for five
minutes they danced in confusion while
the delegates howled delight
Mr Kepler of Nevada who bore the
cross finally planted it at the edge of
the stage The crowd descended to the
pit and continued the demonstration
there As the procession passed the
Texas delegation a free fight almost
occurred Men struggled and fought
for passage but a way was finally
cleared Several men fought like mad
men over the Missouri standard It was
broken into bits but a Bryan man car
ried a piece in triumph to the plat
form while the struggling disputants
were separated by the police
Mrs Minerva Roberts a beautiful
lady led the cheering in the Colorado
While the demonstration was at its
height a thousand copies of the
Bryan Silver March were flung high
in the air and fell In clouds on frantic
delegates I concluded with the fol
lowing words
Clink clink clink
No crown of thorns on labors brow
Clink clnk clink
No cross of gold for mankind now
Clink dink clink
Well no to a single standard bow
Clink clink clink
We vote for Freedom
W quiet was restored after flCOsen
minutes of bd w Field v Virginia
Weavers running mate in 1892 hobbled
forward on crutches and after a brief
speech moved t suspend the rules and
make Bryans nomination unanimous
The convention almost en masse rose
and cheered but above the chorus
came the sharp cries of Texas men
No no they yelled
Chairman Allen declared the motion
carried but yielded to protests and de
cided to allow a call of states on the
motion The Texas men wildly pro
Chairman Allen at last recognized
Stump Ashby of the Lone Star state
for a personal explanation Ashby
announced that Texas was ready to en
dorse Bryan if Bryan would endorse
the platform adopted
His speech was not well received
George Schilling of Wisconsin at
tempted to secure a recess until Bryan
could be heard from but was howled
Chairman Allen said that in voting
for the motion to suspend the rules
the delegation may vote for any candi
date they pleased
llUa1U aUU U U a Y <
i ready
prevailed Colorado voted 45 for the
motion to suspend the rules and the I
nomination of Bryan Men stood on i
chairs and howled for recognition I j
Congressman Howard of Alabama
j demanded to know whether any other I j
names could be placed in nomination j i
The confusion grew so great that it i
was Impossible to proceed The Texas
delegation charged the platform In I i
mass One shouted t I
We will never be quiet I you try to
I continue that roll call I
Sit down Sit down cried the ser
geantatarms while the assistants I
I ploughe through the dense crowd
about the platform and pleaded with
I I the delegates to take their seats When I
a semblance of quiet was restored Con j I
gressman Howard from the stage pro I
tested against gag law
Allen said a motion had been made
to suspend tie rules and to nominate
Bryan by acclamation
I By God we wont stand it yelled
B H Noles Dont It require a two
thirds vote to carry that motion
shouted an irate Arkansas delegate
The chair replied it did not
A California delegate screamed that
j such proceeding was unprecedented
j He thought the delegations should have
a chance to place in nomination
chance nominaton whom
I they choose The quintessence of Pop
ulism he said wac fair play
The chair held that when roll was
called the delegation could vote for
Bryan or any one else
This ruling provoked another storm
of protests and confusion Some one
got on the ulatform and read a tele
gram to Henry D Lloyd of Chicago
from Eugene V Debs declining to per
I mit the USP of his name At last to re
I store order General Field withdrew his
motion and the call of states fo nomi
nations was continued
Calor of California was the first
speaker of a series seconding Bryans
nomination Calor said he always stood
against fusion but
The Populist party was a young
party and could not afford to hold Its
place In the middle of the road while
an express train was bearing down
upon it Calor was heard with mani
fest interest He added that the fact
that Bryan was opposed to That den
of Infamy Wall street was sufficient
to him that he was acceptable to the
Tracy of Texas sought an opportun
ity to ask a question but Color de
clined to respond and there were cries
of Gag law
Delegate Waybright of California
rose t protest against Colors inter
pretation of the sentiment of Califor
nia which state he said was opposed
to the crucifixion of Populism on the
crosp of Democracy
J K HInes of Georgia expressed
k j
the opinion In his speech that Bryan
would accept the nomination on the
acept te nominaton te
Populist platform and predicted a glo
rious victory for the party with Bryan
and Watson as joint standard bearers
W H Claggett of Idaho also sec
onded Bryans nomination
I was not he said a question of
standing in the middle of the road but
of collecting together all the friends of
humanity in a common cause
Claggett asserted that the election of
McKinley would mean a continuance
of the rule of shylocks He also pre
dicted in the event of McKinleys suc
cess that an effort to enact the force
bill would be revived I means the
increase of the standing army and
he said
Time was called and Claggett retired
to give place toTaubeneck of Illinois
chairman of tle national committee
Taubeneck said in case of Bryans nom
ination he felt he could pledge him
every Populist vote of Illinois at the
election next November
The chairman ot the Indiana delega
ton also seconded Bryans nomination
I When Iowa was called her time was
yielded to Governor Kolb of Alabama
who appealed to the convention to sink
prejudice and passion In the cause of
silver and nominate that peerless
statesman William J Bryan
Jerry Simpson responded for Kansas
He paid a high tribute to Tom Watson
also to Bryan
While Simpson was talking the Texas
delegation withdrew in a body and ab
solute quiet prevailed for the first time
J Miller of Tennessee occupied Ken
tuckys time with a speech in Bryans
Louisiana yielded to Colorado Mrs
Minerva Roberts a slender lady with
her face aglow and her great dark eyes
flashing came forward to the stage
Her first sentence delivered hi a clear
musical sympathetic voice
Mrs Roberts spoke as follows
Hailing from a state lying beneath
the shadow of the Rocky Mountains
wihere men have had the courage and
chivalry t granft women the rights
they demand for themselves I
have been accorded the distinguished
honor by the southern state of
Louisa to take their time Gentle
men I thank you in the name of the
women of the United States Ap

cept this ticket i the interest O th
people of this great nation in the inter
est of wives and mothers and children

independent nation
I will take no more of your time
surfeit of oratory
You have already a sreit ort
to much ofit indeed so I will
simply add I have the extreme honor
of seconding the nomination of William

1 When Mrs Roberts built finished
the convention rose and cheered
Governor Kolto of Alabama stepped
forward as she came dOn the steps
and escorted her to her seat
Call of New York spoke against
Bryan He asked whether the gen
eral desire to endorse Bryan was due
to a desire to promote the interests of
silver or to get into the Democratic
band wagon I =

he asserted that l should be definitely I

He said

I is well known my friends that
I I have been acting with those who i
thought that we could best serve the
I e
interest anu me perpetuity 01 me
Peoples party by making our own
independent nomination
The voice of the people is in the
last analysis the voice of God and the
voice of the people demands the nom
inati > n of William J Bryan by this
conventi Applause I yield to
that demand There Is some talk here
that we must force Mr Bryan to the
distinct declination or acceptance of
our nomination We can readily
OUi nominaton readiy see
that It will place him in a
wI very em
barrassing position to be forced to
choose between Mr Sewall and Mr
Watson I think ff we are going to
nominate Mr Bryan and seek to elect
him that we ought to 0 generous to
him Applause and cries of Thats
right We ought not to force him
into such an embarrassing dilemma
Cheers and applause Neither do I
think that we ought to call upon him
to endorse our platform Great ap
plause Our principles do not exist
by tHe sufferances of William J Bryan
or any other man on earth Applause
This is not a merging of the Peoples
party of the United States Into the
Democratic party and therefore there
Is no necessity for afeolute Identity of
opinion Applause and cries of Not
at all
We stand upon the Peoples party
platform We stand upon our own
principles but we are ready for the
cause of suffering humanity to trans
fer our millions of votes to the stand
ardbearer of another party lost the
gold power of the world may trample
our liberty In the dust My friends
we stand on our own basis Let us
make our own nominations let the
bugle sound along the whole line and
let us always remember that Svhile
we have been willing to go thus far
we have not abandoned our party
Here It stands like an entrenched
camp with all our guns blazing I
Democracy fails in the confidence we
have given we will here reassemble
and lift up the banner of mankind
and fight the battle My friends it
looks to me as i this Is a solution of
this question We bow to no man to
no power We do this great and mag

United States and we propose to take
this course for the good of the world

A heavensent treasure he Is ours
To care for and caress him
No matter if the days be drear
Our hearts he never fails to cheer

I stoop and softly kiss him

His loving mamma or myself
His dimpled arms around my neck

You closely round my heartstrings twine
God grant that in the years to come

May peace and happiness be his

Protect and keep him safe from harm

And strong in manhoods glory
Oh never may our hearts grow cold

Leisure Hours
Two chIldren sat in the window low
Where graceiul vines ever loved to creep4
A cradle swinging now fast now slow
Rocking a doll to sleep
His chubby faco and his ringlets brown
Her laughing eyes and her dimples fair
A sunbeam lost in the vines looked downJB
Glinting her yellow hair
I said Goodby happy ones goodby
Eer I come back little girl and boy
Your laugh will fade to a common sigh v i
Mocking this childish joy i A I
Their eyes looked grave for a momentS
But could not take In the meaning cola
She shook her head till his brown crown
Showers of curling gold
When you come back me will be so tall
He said and proud Yes me will
said she
The doll will grow and the cradle all
Lovely as they can be
And far away In the world of tide
In dreams and fancies that picture fair
The girls sweet faith and the boys glad
Follow me everywhere
Ah could it stay could It always be
But each joy falls with a broken wing
Then night comes on and it cannot see
Moaning it cannot sing
With years of winter upon my head
With years of summer upon my face
I came by haunting desire led
Back to the self same place
The same sun struggled and wandered
And glinted ringlets of brown and gold
The doll had grown and the cradle too
Lovelier than of old
The two still sat In the window low
Their hearts so full of a love so deep
A cradle swinging so soft and slow
Rocking their child to sleep
