Between 7,000 and 8,000 People Patiently Await His Coming for Over Two Hours Mr. i r 11 11 wns scheduled to nr rive at Flat Iiivcr lust Friday night at S: 10 o'clock, lint the people be gun at six o'clock to fill the base hall park, where he wan to speak, and where iirritngcineiits had been innil" to Bent Between II.OiKl and 4, 0(H) jieople. The grounds were well lighted liy a 1111:11 1 ior of elec tric arc lamps, kindly furnished by the S. Francois County Kleetric Railway Company, huiI the speak er's, stand, arranged fo seat 200 or more, whs decorated with bunting and flags and it large portrait of Mr. liryun. By S o'clock every available sent was filled, the people being pressed as closely together its it was possible for them to be, while outside of the sealed portion of the grounds fully as many more were standing, crowded together mid elBowing each otlici, in an en deavor to get as near the speaker's stand as possible. In estimating crowds guessers sometimes differ widely and almost ludicrously. We have heard of one or two Re publicans who estimated the crowd gathered to hear Hrvnn at J.oOO. j when the grand stand or aniptheater alone comfortably seats 1 .'J0O, and it was packed and crowded so that there were not less than 1, .100 in it. Some cuthtiiustic Democrats placed the number at 10,000. We made a pretty careful estimate, having been on the ground when the people begun to arrive at ti o'clock, and noted the seating ca pacity, which, wedged in as the people were, accommodated prob ably ;i,.1(lo, then there was nearly as hu ge a space occupied by people standing, packed even closer to gether than was possible on the seats, so that 7,000 would be a conservative estimate. Hut whatever the number, it was an immense crowd, and the eager ness and enthusiasm to hear Mr. l'irvan could have been emphasized in no more emphatic way than in the patient manner in which th-y uwaited his coming. The special train bearing him and his party wits nearly an hour late, and it was nine o'clock hesore he arrived; but the vast throng of people held their places, several thousand of them standing all the time for over two hours. Two hands and two glee clubs, oue each from Flut River and Bouno Terre, were on hand, und entertained the crowd with song and music. When Mr. Brynn arrived a tre mendous cheer went up from the crowd. Walter L. llenoley, Ksi., presided ns ehnirmau of the meet ing, and iiou. M, K. Smith, tint Democratic nominee for Congress, introduced Mr. Bryan with a few well chosen words, simply sayiug that "It affords me great pleasure to have the honor of introducing to you the Great American Com moner and Democrat, the next President of the United States, Hon. William Jenninga Bryan." At the mention of Mr. Bryan's name another wave of applause swept over the vast assemblage. Mr. Bryan started off with a clean and concise statement of the fundamental principles that have divided the two great political pur ties since the institution of our government. The one drew its in spiration from Alexander Hamil ton, who had no faith in and nothing in common with the peo ple, but wanted a strong central ized government with a President and I'uited States Senators elect ed for life, ami courts holding for life; and references to Hamil ton a'-o to-day honored and up- I phiiulcd at R-'piiblii-an baniiii ts. The other adheres to the princi ples of government laid down and taught by that greatest construct ive statesman, Thomas .lefl'i r.-on, who believed in and trusted the people, and whom all Democrats still delight to honor. He argil- d that the Democratic parly is us it hIvh.v has been nearer to the peo ple, their interests mid their wel fare. Mr. Bryan ridiculed the Repub lican claim that all the good things that had come to the country were a direct result of Republican ad ministration, and said that "lliey almost claimed partnership with the Almighty in the production of crops," but that most of the benef icent legislation that hits been given to the country has been through the adoption of planks of the Democratic platform and not those of the Republican platform. He said it bad come to such a pass that the Republican reformer, when he wanted lo accomplish anything, got down on his hands and knees and began looking for 11 Demo cratic trail; and when he found one he would rise up, In-ckon his arms to his followers and call back, "Come on, bos, thev've cainiud I here." ! 1 To illustrate the manner in 1 which the Republican parly has I fulfilled its promises of reform, he told an anecdote of a darky who had married a second wife. Shortly afterwards be met a friend and commenced to pour a tale of woe j into his sympathetic ears. "W'y ilut 'omau's de mos' ouilncious I 'omaii ah evah seed; it's uh dollnh jtulnhiy, uh hu'f 1I0II11I1 tuli-mninili 'an' uh iim!nli nex' day; dollnli tulnlay, 1111 lin't dollnh tub niornih I and a iiiiiluh nex' dnv; uh dollnh ! tuhday, uh ha'f dollnh titii mnrr.ili I an' uh iimtah nex' day, j 11 s-t uh 'goin' uh roun' an' uh roiiu'uu' uh Iroun'!" "W'y, whut she dun do Iwivall dal money?" inquired his I s;. nipathetie friend. "She I, unit ! dun nnlliu' y il ; ah haiiit gin Yr I any." That's the way with the j Republican promises of reform. I The people have been demanding reforms, but the Republican parly "hain't gin 'em any j it . " Mr. Bryan devoted considerable time to labor and the legislation demanded by labor organizations. He favored and defended the jus tice und reasonableness of an eight hour law; said that it was intoler able that a man engaged in manual labor should be compelled to work from 10 to 12 hours a day, to have to go from his bed to his work and from his work back to his bed, with little or no time for social in tercourse with his fumily nnd friends, for reading and informing himself, and for such recreation from the daily grind as nature de manded, He referred to the failute of the Republican Congress to con sider the demands of organized labor for remedial legislation affect ing their interests, and to the Re publican promises that at the next session their interests would be looked after. He reminded them that if the Republican party failed to do this before the election, when their votes were wanted, it would hardly do it after election when their votes were not needed. The Democratic party had always been the friend of labor, and they would better put their trust In it than in the Republican party whose leaders have shown that they are not favorable to the legislation de manded. He discussed at some length the Continued on 4th page. C. P. WU.KSON, Democratic Nominee for Clcik of the Ciuuit ( cunt ('. P.
