OCTOBER IS. 1000. Han-y every day. That hearty laugh and joyous disposition of his braces us up and 1 am glad to be among his mends and people tonight. The para mount issue is, w hat is for the best interests of our people, each individ ual and the whole country. My Hf e has been spent as a business man. 1 am in public life because 1 felt it was m> duty. r left my business in D95 be ause 1 thought 1 saw that unless a change was effected in this country we would go down hill even more rapidly than we had been going Nearly all of our greet industries were paralyzed. Everyone seemed to have lost confidence in the future, and it wanted some man whose character, whose ability, whose integrity oi pur pose, and whose patriotism would gather around him the support of all loyal public spirited American citi zens to save this country from com mercial ruin. Such a a man was William McKinley. “He was nominated and elected and since then this republic has passed through four years, second in import ance to none of the four years preced ing. He has served his country and li;us placed it in the front rank of na tions. commanding the respect of all others, having risen from a debtor to a creditor nation. What better proof is there to she. that we were right, that McKinley was right, when in throe and a half years we have resur rected the business of this country from despondency and gloom, have again lighted the fires of our furnaces and have set in motion the wheels ot industry in every city and today we are loaning gold by millions to Europe itself. In order to secure a continua tion of those conditions we must secure to the people their confidence In the future. All business is conducted on a large scale through confidence. Prosperity is the only Issue in this campaign today. Mr. Bryan was ob liged to relinquish the silver issue. He was io!d U would not do for him to talk free silver in the east, and when Mr. Bryan came to New York—and watch hiin next week —he was not to talk free silver. The question of im perialism was settled to the satisfac tion of every intelligent man by Mc- Kinley’s letter of acceptance; what people wanted was facts. They did not want wild statements. “Bryan talks about trusts. 1 have been quoted as saying there are no trusts. 1 did say there are no trusts legally or commercially in existence in this country. A trust is an organization whose stockholders do not vote except through trustees, who hold the stock for that purpose. Such organizations have been entirely wiped out by the Sherman act, and the only monoply in this country today is that governed by a patent. To show you that the demo crats are not sincere in their talk against trusts, I will remind you that last winter in congress a resolution was offered to amend the constitution so as to give power to the government to lay it hands upon any pernicious organization and as far as was neces sary to protect the interests of the people, control it. That resolution was ably discussed for two whole days, and when the vote came every demo crat in that house voted against it; every republican save two voted for it; and the necessary two-thirds vote being lacking, it was defeated. Who was responsible for that. The demo cratic party under Mr. Bryan's leader ship and advice. “What does Mr. Hryan know altout business? What has he ever dbne for the woraing people of the I’nlted States? As you all know, he never did a thing to help a man who works with his bands in ills life. Did you ever hear of organized labor when Mr. Bryan Vas in congress appealing to him to aid them in the passage of a law which would protect their daily bread" Never. Now in contrast from the first day that William McKinley entered public life as a member of congress from Ohio, he began to mak a study of tnis question and devoted his whole life and energy to it. and so far did he establish himself in the confidence of the working people of this country that no working man or delegation of workingmen ever went to Washington to get advice or aid that did not. go straight to William McKinley (applause), and the advice that he gof was the result of mature judgment and honest purpose on the part of that congressman, until he was admitted to be, of all others In public life, the friend of the work ingman, and he has continued so ever since (applause). "Mr. Bryan in his mad ambition to be president of the United States, •w'ks to array < la.->a against Hass. He would bring about a condition of anarchy and socialism He would would bring strikes and riots and blodshed to accomplish his purpose Hut the people see through his designs and I have no fear about the result if this election." Hanna at Assembly Chamber. In the expectation that the gym nasium would not hold ail who might wish to see and hear Senate/- Hann ■ tnd that no one might be dlßappo’ote "t was arranged to have Hanna speak i the assembly chamber first, wnib Senator Frye opened the speeehmak ] ng at the armory Then Victor B ! 'oliiver, a brother of the gifted Hawk 1 ye senator, would continue the speak ( ig at the assembly chamber whi!• ‘ Inina proceeded to the gymnasium t- j neet the great crowd gathered ther< The assembly chamber w as jammed in floor and gallery, many ladies being present. Senator Hanna and Mr. Dol liver took seats on the platform with ( ommitteeman A G, Zimmerman, their entrance being the signal for a hearty ovation. Mr. Zimmerman in troduced Senator Hanna as follows: "Ladies and Gentlemen:—We have with us tonight the man who was at the helm and managed the republican campaign of 1896 that resulted in the triumphant election of William Mc- Kinley ns president of the United States. This year he is again at the helm and is conducting the campaign that will certainly result in the re-elec tion of President McKinley. 1 have pleasure and honor of introducing to you Marcus A. Hanna, United States senator from the state of Ohio," Senator Hanna talked about 40 min utes developing practically the same points that he later made at the gym nasium and was at times interrupted with hearty applause. On his concha slon he was driven to the gymnasium while Mr. Doiliver gave an eloquent talk of nearly half an hour which was also received with enthusiasm. Brlet receptions were held by Senator Han na at the conclusion of each speech •'lany persons crowding around to shake his hand. At the assembly chamber lie said In part; "When the St. Louis conven tion nominated William McKinley for the presidency in 1896, they promised the people of this country certain tilings if they could succeed in control ling both branches of congress and elect a chief executive. Every prom ise made by the republican party in that convention lias been fulfilled to the uttermost. This campaign is based simply upon the business propo sition whether the administration of public affairs is in safe hands. whether the principles adopted and carried out by the republican party are safe prin ciples and whether that is tlie founda tion for confidence which makes busi ness. If that's true, then do we want a change? The other day Bryan, in addressing some workingmen said: You are slaves of a irnst. They They could have told him they wore better paid for being slaves than ever before in their lives. We have out grown our home markets and there fore are In favor of expanding our market. We are in favor orf reaching out in the uttermost parts of the world and taking hold of any and every market which we can enter by com petition and maintain our American wages. Thuts what 1 call expansion, and if they can torture it into imper ialism I am willing they should." ■mtorial party left Madison ove ; '..western road for the i erth, at 11 o’clock. HANNA AT WAUKESHA NATIONAL CHAIRMAN DILATES UPON QUESTION OF TRUSTS. FIGURES ON PROSPERITY Arraigns Mr. Bryan For Trying, Aa He Says, to Array Class Against Class—Says Sherman Act Has Wiped Out All Trusts That Con stitution Can Reach. Waukesha, Oct. 16. Senators Han na ami Frye, and Victor B. Dolli ver of lowa spoke here to large audi ences yesterday. Senator Hanna's -p * eh, In part, is us follows: 1 consider the Issues and results of this campaign second in import ance to none other since the founda tion of the republican party. I con si P r it of such importance because it comes down to a pure business proposition—a proposition in which is involved our well being, the comfort happiness of our families, the maintenance of a policy in the admin istration of our government, which means .i continuation of prosjfr rity which brings happiness to every fire side and wealth and greatness to the I nation. I say it 1s a business propo- I sitlou because In the great widening j and spreading of our influence and development the United States of | America has taken a front rank, its i influence has spread beyond the bor ders of our country, and the wealth that is being gathered to our shores is the result of our industry and a tribute to the Intelligence of our peo ple, (Applause.) Ido not propose— because time* will not permit—to go into a discussion of the subjects which Senator Frye has touched upon, ft Is an Impossibility that tm periallsm should find any foothold in the minds of a single inhabitant of the United States, foreign or native born But our adversaries have seen fit to call this patriotic developmc nt, this evidence of evolution of business merely a commercial affair. Well, ray friends. If (he great development of I mr resources, the energetic appear- I ince of industry and Ingenuity, the j ipening of the markets of th< world, i fhlch brings wealth to our shores ■ ind happlues.* to our people -if that a commercialism, I am in favor of | oinmerciallsm (applause). Now we j re right up against this one quev j lot. We have had the object lesson j •f 1893 to 1897. Do we want to go I a< k to that period of distress and 1 ovc-rty and wa,-.t, or do we want to j ORtlnue along the straight path to | •velopinent and prosperity, whirl i ill extend far beyond the four yean ! f IT* -i-hnt M K! ley’s next adminls j ration, because these theories wicked and deceitful as they are, will have been buried so deep that no party, however brave, will ever at tempt to mystify an American people by them again I do not propose to permit \V. J. Bryan to appeal to the prejudices of the people in arraying class against class without calling him down. Today, having forsaken his free silver issue, having abandoned his Imperialistic issue, having run away from his trust Issue, he now brings before the intelligent people of the United States that dema gogical cry of class against class, tin' poor against the rich, the employer and the manufacturer, against the employe, and appeals to the prejudices and not the reason of people. Why. I have often said, it and I shall always repeat it, that I consid er it is an insult to the intelligence of the American people for a man who aspires to the high office of the presi dency of the United States to attempt to array class against class and expect that either t lass will follow him. \V. J. Bryan when ho stands before the workingman of the United States and attempts to array them against their employers is occupying the position of a demagogue and trading on what lie Imagines to he the ignorance of the people. At Anderson in Indiana the other lay before an audience com posed ntlrely of workingmen, work ing In the tin factories of that town, several thousand, he rulh'd against tin* so-called trusts and remember that he puts in that category every iinlnst rial concern in the United States, ev ery large manufacturing establishment in the country which lias been success ful, which has multiplied its useful ness, enlarged Its sphere and builded up a business which gives employment to thousands of men. No matter of what kind or nature that manufacture may lie. he calls ii a trust, and he calls the National Tin company a trust, be cause it is an amalgamation of several companies, and he also calls it a monopoly. Why. there Isn’t a man who has money to invest In this coun try who cannot build a tin mill if he wants to. "There is not any capital In tills conn try seeking: investment which cannot enter Into the manufacture of > very and any commodity which is made in the United States, except that which is patented by a United States patent. (Applause). There are no monopolies in this country except these which are protected by n patent right given by the government. Kvery branch of cv cry industries Is open to the competi tion of any and every man who wants to invest his capital in that kind of a venture Now he told those work In w men from the tin mills that was the way to put an end to trusts, The con stltntion does not reach them all, or the laws upon the statute hooks of 111. United States. The Sherman act passed by a republican congress has wipe 1 out all the trusts that can be reached under the constitution. And when 1 say trusts I mean the combina thins of capital whose invest monls are in the hands of stockholders, hut whose stockholders have no rigid to vote, the stock is simply voted by the trustees in whose care the capital stock is placed. That is a trust. As the Standard Oil was. as the Sugar Trust was. as the Iron Pipe company was, and as the Trans Missouri Tralllc association was, all wiped out by the Sherman act, and the supreme court of the United States. "Now. Mr Bryan classes In the rate gory of trusts every single one ni these great industries of this country which have led to the development and growth and prosperity of our country, and he told those men that the only remedy was now until con gress provided an amendment to tin constitution which would reach all these combinations, to put every arti do manufactured by these great in dustries upon tin free lbls. Now let us see what that would do. This tin industry, until the McKinley bill was passed, amounted to nothing in this country. After the McKinley hill was passed, immediately there sprang into operation a number of manufactories of tin. Under the Wilson law-, supei reding the McKinley law they were till closed down, but when Mr. Dfngley's hill became the law of land, imnn dlately the smoke issued from every chimney, more mills were built, and today we are manufacturing ail the tin consumed in the United States and ■ x porting it to Europe. (Applause). If Mr. Bryan's advice were followed, and the duty were taken off tin, in order to strike down the so-called trusts, every mill would be shut, down within twen ty four hour and the thousands of men who are today earning good wages and supporting their families in comfort would be thrown into idleness I and suffering, and that same condition would follow through every branch of the Industries of this great country. I Today we are the greatest manufartur Ing country on the globe. (Applause). We are exporting more of the manu factured goods of our shops and fac lories than we are importing That change took place on the first of Au gust, 1898. "Ami from that flay to thin the growth f/f our exports of manufae turf and goods, rrilnfl, not the natural produ-ts. 1 ,t the products of our man i factories anrl whop*, hundreds of thousand-, aye mllllonH of dollars more than we are Importing Mr I)ol liver referred to Unele Sam’s ledger l> t me (five you an (ten from that edger.

Do we want to give no tice to the great army of workingmen in this country that in deference to theory, to satisfy the ambitions of one man, we are going to destroy their hopes for the future? It Comes down to that, my friends. That is exact!? what it means, I speak to you as a business man, as a manufacturer who has had to do with labor. I know w hat ho result w ill be, and so does every business man in tills audience, t.et that cloud which Dolllver spoke of appear on the horizon during this election and immediately every man who is conducting a large business will begin to paddle for shore: he will begin to curtail ills output Nearly all the business of this country is done upon credit. Ninety-six per cent, of tin' commercial transactions of the United Stall's is done by the ex.- changes of credit, and the first time that there is a note of warning, of danger ahead, capital will be with drawn from the avenues of commerce, money will he hidden away, ns it was from I SIC! to 1597, and the wheels of industry will slow down, and the con ditions existing from 1893 to 1897 will bo brought back upon this country, only ton times worse, because at that time we had not far to fall: we were about at the lowest stratum of any condition that can come to ns. To da> we are on the high road to pros perity. and that prosperity is nothing more than the normal condition of tilings In this country, if wo fall now we have a great ways to fail. And the shock will be so great, so disas trous to the commercial and indus trial interests of tins country, that I make the prophecy that ten years un dcr most any kind of an udmlulstra lion will scarcely bring ns back to where we are today. Then in the name of all that Is good and holy, in the name of the men, women and children who have come to ns from foreign shores to better their condi tion here, lei us stand together, maintaining the wages of the Annul can workingman, continuing to build up these great industries, availing ourselves of these great reservoirs of natural wealth that Clod lias given ns and go forward, brushing from our paths all demagogues and ambitious men by telling them that we know our business and an going to attend to It."

The stealing of exhibits, which to a greater or less extent always marks the closing days of a big exposition, has begun. The other night a piano was smuggled out of the fair on a false order. Nothing Is supposed to be allowed to pass out of the gates, as the exposition as a whole constitutes a custom port of entry Still the thieves do not seem to have much trouble in smuggling out all the goods they manage to stoal. Ml the exhibit ors are supposed to have night watch men stationed near their exhibits, but this does not seem to prevent the loss of valuable property The authorities are gradually shortening the hours during which exhibits are to he seen, as tin' shortening of the days qjakes the prevention of petty thievery diffi cult in buildings which are not wired for electric lighting. During the last days of October the buildings will probably be closed at 5.50 p in., If not earlier There seems to he sort of vague fear here that a coal famine Is at hand, and wild rumors about coal costing SSO a ton are heard.
