WASHINGTON Sept 19A violent
wind and rain storm which swept over
the city at 6 oclock broke up the
Bryan meting and the promise of its
f coming prevented i from being the
f success it would have been under more
pleasant conditions of weather
The candidate had just reached the
consideration of Washingtons farewell
rain com
address when the pelting
i pelled a cessation of his speech al
though probably 1500 enthusiastic au
ditors braved the elements and pleaded
V for him to go on After waiting a few
minutes hoping the severity of the
storm might mitigate and he be enabled
abled to proceed Mr Bryan gave up
l and left the ground The speakers
i who were expected to follow the presi
dential candidate including Hon T
f F Grady of Tammany New York of
e course found more opportunity to
r carry out their part of the programme
r i The meeting was held in the old base
i ball park north of the capitol four or
five blocks For the occasion a plat
t form eighty feet square had been con
structed which was profusely decor

and at 4 oclock the hour fixed ta

were probably 5000 people gathered in

stand reserved for club members
There were at that time a few ban
ners in the field prominent among
them being that of t Bryan club of
North Carolina which asserted that
that was the first state to endorse
Bryan for the presidency
At five minutes after the hour Mr

committee called the meeting to order

While waiting for the appearance of

ably every one presenting the name
of the presidential cuididate
He was followed by Bon Benton Mc
MHlln of Tennessee While Mr McMil

ln speklng cuds
portending a heavy storm gathered in
the northwest but the people stood
In their places waiting for him whom
J they had come to hear While they
were driving silently down over the
ct the head of the procession escort
ing Mr Bryan was sighted and the
band struck up Dixie The crowd
broke into tumultuous cheers which
were kept up at Intervals while he was
makIng his way to the front of the
platform Then the demonstration be
t came tumultuous and was kept up for
a minute or more despite the efforts of
I the official to secure quiet that the
candidate might b heard before the
i storm come When he was presented
by th chairman there was a repetition
J of the applause As Mr Bryan stepped
I t lo die front little Mabel Cosgrove
a lifted to the stand and presented
the candidate with a bunch of white
w roses which he smilingly received Mr
cc Bryans opening sentence afforded a
r opportunity for an interruption that
caused great applause He spoke of his
return to the city where four years of
official life had been spent A voice
on the outskirts shouted And four
more beginning next March The ap
nlatise and laughter following this grew
pause until i swept over the whole
Almost immediately after the > candi
date began speaking the longheralded
storm again gave indications of break

Sust The elements were so threatening
that many of the audience left but Mr
Bryan continued his remarks a the
rain began to fall He spoke twenty
five minutes and was then compelled
to stop th rain coming down in tor
rentS Mr Bryan was driven to the
hotel where he held an exceedingly
brief reception to the local committee
lie a then driven to the residence of
Mr Bride with whom he lived while a
member of Congress Here Mr Bryan
hastily changed his clothe and se

eight mounted pUce the journey to the
railroad station was made and at 640
I the train pulled out for Baltimore
In company with Mayor White and

The journey of the Democratic can

Arriving a Washington at five min

people who were wedged in behind the I

echoes were heard from the throats of I
fully 3000 people congregated in the
streets outside I was only with the
utmost difficulty that the police were I
able to keeep back the enthusiastic
crowd every man of whom sought I
to reach and shake the hand
0 r
of the candidate I Surrounded by I
the local committee and the dele

mittee Mr Bryan was conducted L
his carriage and hurriedly driven tc
the Metropolitan hotel After a brief
rest and luncheon carriages were again
taken and the party proceeded to the
old baseball park where it had bee n
preceded some two or three hours by a
crowd estimated at 10000
Mr Bryan said
Mr Chairman Lad and Gentle
men I am grateful to you for the very
cordia welcome which you have ex
tended to me a I return t the city
in which four years of official life were
5 > ent
I desire to call your attention to two
planks in the platform adopted at Chi
cago before touching on other matters
contained in the campaign I speak
of these two planks because 1
who live hi the District of Columbia
The Chicago platform contains this
We favor the admission of the ter
ritories of New Mexico Oklahoma and
Arizona into the Union as states And
we favor the early admission of all the
territories having the necessary popu
lation and resources to entitle them to
statehood and while they remain ter
ritories we hud that the official ap
pointed to administer the government
of any territory together with the Dis
trict of Columbia and Alaska should
be bona fide residents of the territory
or district in which the duties are to
be performed
Let me read another plank We
a opposed to life tenure in the public
service Applause We favor ap
pointments based on merits ap
of office and such administration
terms ofc sch a adminisr
tion dl the civil service laws as will
afford equal opportunities to all cit
of ascertained fitness except
zens eraned ftness excot
a otherwise provided by the constitu
tion1 of the United States We are in
favor of a civil service reform that
means something and not a civil service
vice reform than permits a president
to sustain a civil service until he can
get his friends into office and su an
te service just as he is going out S
a t keep his friends in Applause
We believe in appointments based on
merit and such method of appointment
a will open the offices to men of as
certained fitness
are doing a much for us in this cam
paign as wei are able to do for our
selves Laughter Of all the public
documents recently issued the most
important one is the letter just given
to the public writtem by the secretary
of the treasury from which I desire to
quote this sentence It is the duty of
the secretary o the treasury and of
all other public officials to execute In
good faith the policy declared by con
gress and mark these words and
whenever he shall be satisfied that the
silver dollar cannot b kept equal in
the purchasing power with the gold
dollar except by receiving it in ex
change for the gold dollar when ex
change is demanded it will be his duty
t adopt that course I want you to
mark these words because in those
words the secretary of the treasury
tells you that whenever the secretary is
satisfied that i is necessary he wiCl
commence redeeming silver dollars in
gold Laughter I I your attention
to it because I want to
which have been practiced by this ad
ministration on the money question
Applause When this administration
advised the repeal of the Sherman law
you were told the repeal o the Sher
man law would remove the difflouy
and yet as soon as the Sherman law
was repealed the same authority
which promised relief as soon a that
was repealed came to congress with
the demand that the greenbacks and
treasury notes notes must be retired
by a issue of gold bonds in order to
stop the drain on the treasurys gold
Proceeding with his speech after
wit speh ater a
brief intermission caused by a violent
gust of wind Mr Bryan said
The secretary of the treasury in
forms you that if the greenbacks and
treasury notes were all retired so there
would not b a dollar of paper money
to be presented for gold yet it would
be his duty to commence to redeem
silver dollars in gold and to start an
other endless chain that would drain
the treasury According to the doc
trine laid down by Mr Carlisle YOu
on the treasury until you retire all the
silver dollars and leave nothing but
gold in the treasury vaults I am glad
thac our opponents are thus compelled
to expose t the public eye their heart
less moneyless and criminal policy I
I a glad that they have told the people
we must have gold alone and thus have
confessed that we are In the hands of
two banking syndicates and must pay
them what they want Talk about
monopolies and trusts Here they
propose to establish the most
prpse estblsh te gigan
tic trust a money trust and to let the
I men who own the gold dole i outia
the other 70000000 of American citi
zens I denounce that policy a more
I cruel and heartless than would be the
domination of any foreign power
I would rather as I have said put our
army in the hands of a foreign general
I or our navy In command of a foreign ad
miral than to put the treasury In the
hands of a secretary who would barter
i away to a syndicate Cheers I would
resist such a financial policy with as
much earnestness as I would the prepress
of an invading army Cheers When
air Lincoln was a candidate for office
someone said to him I hope the Lord is
on your side and he replied that he was
more anxious to be on the Lords side
Laughter and applause I am glad that
I in this campaign we have so many evi
dences that an overruling providence is
on our side and In no one instance that
I know of is that overruling providence
s distinctly and clearly manifest as In
the recent letter of the secretary of the
treasury Let me ask you a question
Did the administration when I recom
mended the repeal of the Sherman law
believe i would cure our trouble Cries
of No and cheers If it did then the
administration was
that you have the right to disregard and
distrust the knowledge of the adminis
tration on this question If the adminis
tration knew that the repeal of the Sher
man law would not bring relief then you
have the right to distrust the honesty of
the administration which would thus
administraton re
commend one policy and pursue an
other Applause
Here the threatening clouds began to
discharge their contents upon the audi
ence and the bunting shed its colors
upon the honored spectators on the plat
form dyeing them red and blue indis
I criminately A forest of umbrellas arose
In the audience and one chivalric spec
tator emulating Sir Walter Raleigh took
elf his coat and threw It about Mr Bry I
ans shoulders himself standing in bare I
sleeves in the pelting rain This elicited
cheers from the crowd but nevertheless I
the grounds began rapidly to be divested
of spectators Shouts were raised for Mr
Bryan to go on and disregarding all the
inconveniences he continued
I the administration knew when it
recommended the retirement of the green
backs and treasury notes asmeans of
of the public treasury that after they
were retired a policy would be proposed I I
such as the secretary now recommends I I
I was dishonest in not taking the people
into its confidence at the time Cheers
I it did not know then then it confesses
its ignorance of finance and of the laws
of the country Applause Does the administration
h i
ministration trknoPI now that when it
starts to redeem the silver dollars In gold I
it will start another endless chain wnich
will drain the treasury an endess chan
which will continue until they retire all
the silver dollars and Issue bonds in their I
place Applause Now dont think my
language is harsh
Here a voice In the crowd shouted out
I is not half harsh enough and this
was greeted with applause
Air Bryan continued Ihese men are
the public servants of the American peo
ple and they have no more right to be
tray the people into the hands of the
shylocks of London than Benedict Ar
nold had to attempt to betray the Ameri
can army Great applause
The rain became sun mor Intense at
this point and notwithstanding clamors
from the audience of
a general run for shelter was started
Mr Bryan continued Thats all I have
to say about the secretarys letter at this
Here a man shouted out Aijd that
settles it whereupon there was an out
burst of laughter and cheers
Now continued Mr Bryan in the
mew moments left me let me call your at
tention to the language used by the father
of his country in the message given to
the world one hundred years ago today
Washington said in that message
There can be no greater error to expect
or calculate upon real favors from nation
to nation I is an illlusion which ex
perience must cure which a just pride
ought to discard Those who were ex
pecting foreign nations dominated by the
creditor classes who profit by a rising
dollar to join with us in stopping the rise
in the dollar are doomed to disappoint
ment and It is difficult to see how any
Person can expect silver to be restored to
its rightful place by foreign aid when
we have waited for twenty years only to
find our opponents more hostile than ever
Aye covertly threatening that they will
use the notes which they hold to control
our financial policy
to the American people it must come from
the American people themselves and on
this day when we celebrate the one hun
dredth anniversary of Washingtons fare
well address we may resolve to achieve
our financial independence without the I
aid of other nations Great applause
At this point the storm took possession
of the meeting and an indiscriminate and I
indecorous exit was begun although cries
were raised by the crowd of Go on rain
wont etc hurt you Give i to Mark Hanna
Carriages were in waiting for Mr Bryan
and other distinguished guests and they
all took their departure without giving i I
opportunity to listen to a speech of Mr
Grady which was supposed to b an ef
fective effort in answer to the address of
Mr Burke Cochran
Bryan Look Into Twenty Thousand
Bryan presented his views on the finan
cial and other questions of the cam
paign to the people of Maryland to
night The welcome he received was a
demonstration of such magnitude that
he never before witnessed Notwith
standing Mr Bryan arrived in the city I
in a downpour of rain he was greeted
by a large crowd at the station and
when he reached the stand erected I
In the center of the plaza fronting the
Mount Royal entrance to Music hall
he looked into the faces of at least
20000 persons who stood in the rain
tumultuously cheering his appearance
As he mounted the platform on the
plaza the crowd broke Into a cheer
which rose and fell for some minutes
before he could make himself heard
Mr Bryan said
My friends it is the purpose of the
Democratic party in its platform
to those who produce the wealth of
this country and when the wealthpro
ducers are prosperous then everybody
who lives upon the wealthproducer
will share i that prosperity Applause
A law which makes money dear
makes everybody try to ge hold of
money and a law which makes prop
erty cheap makes everybody try to get
rid of property A voice Thats
right The gold standard Sa bad b
cause it makes money the only thing
worth having and therefore intensifies
the struggle to get It Applause Our
opponents tell us that the gold stand
ard is good foe the laboring men My
friends I would rather have the la I
boring man say what Is good for him
than to leave it to the great monopo
lists of the country to find out what
is for the Our
good laboring man op
ponents appeal to the laboring man I
to Ftand by the money changers in
Wal street I want to ask the labor I
ing man when the moneychanging
class ever did anything to help the la
boring man from the history of crea
tion down to now Great applause and
cries of None Our opponents tell
us that we are arraying
I deny it A voice So do I We
are simply telling people that they
havea right to keep other men out of
the hands of their opponents Cheers
Our opponents are trying to array the
laboringman of this country against
the farmers of this country My
friends I want you laboringmen to in
vestigate and find out who ic i is that
1 alas stood by the laboringmen in all
their troubles to improve their cn
dition Is it the farmer or is it the
president of the railroads Great ap
plause and a voice Thats a hot one
another voice Give em hell
Mr Bryan and his escort were at
once conducted to Music hall which
was packed from pit to dome In in
troducing Mr Bryan Senator Gorman
sadI Is my pleasure to present the
next president of the United States
Mr W J Bryan
The applause and cheering were long
continued while the Nebraskan stood
bowing and smiling When he could
make himself heard he said
I come as the nominee in this cam
paign of three parties who believe in
the restoration of the money of the
constitution applause a the nom
inee of the three parties who believe
that the money of the constitution is
an honest money
The Democratic party at Chicago
adopted a platform which means some
thing my friends A voice Right you
are Our platform has alienated
some it must needs be that any
platform which covers several ques
tions will alienate some but my
friends I want to suggest this for
your consideration that the Chicago
convention composed of delegates
named by the Democratic party is the
only authority that can determine
what is Democracy in this country
Applause Some have left the Dem
ocratic party because of the action of
the Chicago convention We cannot
by any court process restrain them
from leaving the Democratic party
but we a shut the doors of that party
I when they go out and they cannot
I get back again Applause long con
When we say that the money ques
tion is the paramount issue our op
ponents keep trying to thrust the tariff
question into the operation Why not
settle the tariff question by interna
tional agreement Laughter and
tonal ap
I plause Why my friends this national
convention has occupied a kneeling
I posture for so long that the old vnrld
I hardly recognizes it now thatit statds up
I and looks them in the face Applause
I have had reason to remark that when
they thought
did not amount to anything they would
draw out the gold and issue bonds
then draw OUL the gold again and issue
I more bonds and keep up a long as
there was 3 good material for bonds
< <
p i
Gold went abroad and it was laid to
one thing and another but the Chi
cago convention met and It adopted a
platform which said what it meant an
meant what it said and then what
There was a hurried consultation and
a prompt decision that it would not
do to Issue any more bonds before the
election Laughter and applause A
voice Give it to Cleveland give it to
And my friends in order to pacify
the people in order to quiet their fears
they have just been sending th gold
over here and showing what good con
fidence in the American people and if
this election results in the maintenance
of the gold standard and the election
of those who still Insist that our treas
ury shall be run on the European plan
they can draw out every dollar Ap

NEW YORK Sept 19There were
many callers this morning at Republi
can national headquarters Senator
Quay and Chairman J H Manley of
Maine were also early on hand
I was said that Senator Quay in
tends to have a meeting of the execu
tive committee to adopt a plan of cam
paign in regard to the southern states
and also to decide upon
in regard to all the doubtful states
It has been represented to the com
mittee that there is an excellent chance
of carrying Alabama for McKinley and
Hobart and a decided effort will be
made to carry that state Encouraging
reports are also coming in from Florida
North Carolina Tennessee and Virginia
A delegation of commercial travelers
called on VicePresidential Candidate
Hobart today at headquarters The del
egation was accompanied by his special
guest the Hon Charles E Warwick
of Philadelphia Mr Hobart thanked
them for their kindness and told them
that he knew the commercial travelers
were a set of men who would not be
buncoed by any Chicago platform Mr
Hobart said in his address
Hobar am very glad to meet you gentle
men I do na propose to make a
speech this morning but I would do an
injustice to myself and would be
if I did not thank you heartily and
generously for the beautiful words of
welcome and cheer which you have
professed I know that this enthusiasm
is born of your love and your loyalty
for the ticket which I have the honor
to represent When I think of the com
mercial travelers I think of them as a
class of men who have never been
buncoed or if any one of them ever
have been history has failed to record
it And so whenever since the nomi
nation I have thought of the commer
cial travelers as an independent class
of citizens I have regarded them as a
class of men who I know will not be
buncoed by any platform like the Chi
cago platform embracing a it does
false doctrines and policies inimical to
the honor and the Integrity of the na
tion and savoring a
Your organization has been a great
help to this committee in a great many
ways all of which we fully appreciate
and are quick to recognize
Your membership reaches all over
this wide and growing country and
there is from each o you a continual
stream of influence radiating wherever
you go And the reason why your or
ganization is so allpowerful and at the
same time so satisfactory to the com
mittee is whereas the time of the com
mittee Is taken up with instructions o
voters we realize that the commercial
travelers are accustomed to make sen
timent wherever they go and they
know as well as the national committee
where to g what to do and how to co
the important work laid out for this
There was great cheering as Mr Ho I
bart concluded Then the members of
the delegation were personally ntn
duced to Candidate Hobart Senator

BERLIN Sept 19The excited lan
guage employed by the Vienna and Ber
lin semiofficial newspapers in discussing f
the Turkish policy adopted by Lord SaIls
bury is known to be due to the rapidly
growing divergence of the lines of Lord
Salisburys proposal and that of Count
Goluchowski the Austrian minister of
foreign affairs a to how to
Prince Hohenlohe the German Imperial
chancellor who has now gone to his es
tate at Alt Aussee in Syria for a sea
son of hunting ha continued to play sec
ond fiddle to Count Goluehowski snco
that statesman took the Initiative upon
the eastern question To the Benin go
ernment the question remains vieivdas
affecting the drelbund chiefly The semi
official press here naturally follows the
lead of the Vienna semiofficial organs
but it is difficult in the extreme to as er
tain what Count Goluchowskls ideas are
peyond for the present at least uphold
ing the sultan and maintaining the status
quo in Turkey generally Amidst thp
newspaper Invectives which have been
hurled against England not
on the part of the porte ha appeared
Austria obviously fears that the a Uon
of England will drive the sultan to dam
the protection of Russia involving thE
sudden appearance of Russian troops at
Constantinople and Russian warships In
the Dardanelles
I Outside of the semiofficial press the
the concensus of opinion is that the soil
tan must be deposed before the rtcui rng
disorders in Constantinople and elsewhre
in the Turkish empire shal cease tit
the opinion in foreign official circles here
Is that time must be allowed in which to
enable the powers to arrange for tile se
lection and enthronement of his sutctb
SOl Vienna Neue Fro Presse rightly
argues that the sultan is under the pro
tection of Russia and that if England I
should seek to force n5f monarchs de
position she would very quicivly find that
she would have to face Russia for her
Todays Issue of the Neue Frie Presse
contains the report of a interview win
an Austrian statesman wherein he sayr
that European entente in regard to Tun
key no longer exists but has been re
placed by a rt
the object of which is to maintain the
status quo and maintain Sultan Abdul
Hamid in power as if a new sultan
should be placed upon the throne by the
powers ho would not have the prestige
and authority of the present occupant of
the Ottoman throne and this state of of
fairs would cause a general rebellion of t
the Turks against the new caliphs gov
The Inspection of tho Turkish forts In
the Dardanelles by the Russian general
Tchikatcheff commander of the District
of Odessa is very significant of the sul
tans reliance upon Russia
General ichikatcheftTs mission to Con
stantinople and the Dardenelles forts oc
curred early In July last but the faSft
has just leaked out It appears that a
Russian warship passed s fortnight in the
Dardenelles during which a group oC
Russian officials were engaged in inspect
ing the fort works and assisting the Turk
ish officers In
Since the return of General Tchitakat
chaff to Odessa It is believed that war
materials may be supplied to the Don
denelles forts from Russia Comment
ing upon this affair the Vienna Neue Frio
Presse says The English foreign office
must be blind if it fails to understand the
meaning of this
Within a week after the czars meeting
with the kaiser the tariff war between
Germany and Russia was actively re
sumed In response to the clamor of the
agrarians the German government raised I
ine duties upon agricultural imports
claiming that this Increase was permissi
ble under the terms of the RussoGerman
commercial treaty To this action the
Russian government has replied by with
drawing all the tariff concessions
in 1894 and 1395 The German manufac
turers who have enormous stores of pro
hibited goods thus thrown upon their
hands have vainly appealed to the
foreign office for redress but It Is ex
pected that the final reprisal of German i
will be to recur to the edict of the reicha
band forbidding the issue of German loom
upon Russian securities

of his recent visit to Breslau has been
