'lhcro was a large crowd gathered In tho dis
trict cmct room'last night to hear Col. E. A.
.(ones ilelltcr tho oj)enlng speech of his canvasB
for congressional honors In the Ninth district.
All political partes were represented, and
thire was a good-sized delegation of colored
Col Jones was Introduced nt 3.13 to his all
dlencoby Col. William Cameron and spoke
substantially as follows
Colonel Jones opened his remarks Mlth an an
ecdote w hlch ho said Illustrated that It Is often
the case that men who boast the moat of their
religion, their patriotism or their democracy
have the least of It. Of tho democracy of any
dish I lime nothlni: to say
At this opening moment I wish to say that
whatover may bo said of mo, as to my democ
racy or my character 1 will leao unanswered.
Whatct er the newspapers orthose who employ
thorn may say I will Icaro to bv decided by pub
lic opinion. 1 am hero somo ten days or so
inrllcr than I expected to be because of mis
representations. Hero Colonel Jones alluded
to tho articlo In tho St, Louis ItcpuMtc de
nouncing the parties who formed tho Waco
Home Market Hub This he said was a slan
derous attack upon those who are his Iriends In
"Here." said tho Colonel, "let mo say that
In this controversy I am the follower and they
are lii the advance
Colonel Jones continued "I am hero to dis
cuss the Issues Involved In this campaign. My
lews are not the result of my candidacy but
my candidacy Is the result ol those iews. In
thUcontrotcny It is sold, it Is beliecd, that
the Mills Bill should be, nut only tho test of
democracy, but, gem rally, that that It Is tho
groai mcasnro in wmcu me people or tins coun
try are particularly lnterestid. It Is regarded
as the great measure for public Interest.
I regard the bill ns a fraud. Further, so far
irom oeingasoiiiuern measure ills pecuiiany
a northern measure Whilst generally re
garded as a free trnde measure it is not so un
derstood by those better Informed.
Discussing the hill further, Colonel Jones
said I undertake to saj that that measure In
Its present shape had but one prime oujeet and
that w as political and partisan It w as shaped,
framed, formulated and pained for thu purpose
or capturing two or three doubtful states to
sal the presidency.

The Colonel then read an oxtract from Mills'
speech since tho bill was reported In which
Mills savs the woolen inanutaeturer Is not In
jured but benefited.
In continuation ol a proposition, which Col
Jones said ho had not jet been fully able to de
Yolop, he read from n speech delhered In the
senate by; Senator Cokoln 1S, declaring tho
principles of Democracy to bo that so long as
such tnst sums are to bo raised In tlds country
they must bo raised by a dnty on Imports i that
all ItUe-rsats should be eiinally protected
Tills discussion of tnrilf, or protection per
se, declared Col. Jones, is not a Hie Issue but
an issue lorced on us, by ;the accumulation or a
vast surplus In the treasury, designedly piled
up and constantly added to for political pur
poses This Bundus should goback to tho people
enen ir direct legislation is necessary to get it
Here Col. Joues announeed that bo was will

At the conclusion or his addresa Colonel

stated that he would be heard from again.

When lie had concluded thoro was
a loud call made from tho Democrats

down, and nearly all of them loft the

lenco loft, and ho nroceoded to re
ply to Mr. Jones, first reading tho
articlo to which tho colonel had ro-
forrod in tho St. Louis Romiblic, and
asking if there was anything In that
which slandered Col. Jones' frirnds.
He then attacked his position ou tho
wool question, saying that it bad al

government to put raw materials on
