:9 WATERBURY EVENING DEMOGRAT.tTUESDAY. OCTOBER 30, 1900. .',., ' . .1 . "J 7 .7 X 5 i , t V . . . PDLIT1GAL POINTERS; "WATERBURY DEMOCRATS HAVE . : A BIG DEMONSTRATION. . 1 Short Street Parade by Local Demo crats., John H.. Dillon Escort of New Haven and Bands of Music Stores ond Offices Illuminated Red Fire Burned Speeches By Candidates at City Hall. Last night's democratic rally, though somewhat disappointing in one respect, was a success away and beyond the expectations of the management ana conveyed a pretty good idea of the feeling of the electors of Waterbury on the political situation. Judge Bron son of New Haven and friends were due here at 8 o'clock, but owing to the bungling work of the Consolidated road tho party did not arrivehere until about 10 o'clock. At 8 o'clock it was practically impossible to move through the principal streets, every available ' space being occupied clear out to the trolley rails. As the hour grew later and the visitors had not been heard from, many who brought children t;i see the parade went home quite dis pleased at being "fooled," as they ex pressed it, but the bulk of the crowd remained and joined in the shouts of exultation that re-echoed all over town when the train pulled into the station. The delay in reaching here as planned was occasioned by the rush of people to board the special at New Haven. After considerable wrangling fourteen cars loaded where one could ' hang on pulled out for Waterbury. 'but when they reached West Haven the engine was not able to ascend the grade and another stop was made. The train finally got here any how. and as soon as it "was heard rolling in. Bank street from Grand street to the station was immediately illuminated as it never had been before, the street be tween these points being lighted so brilliantly that one eovld see tin; mass of humanity swaying to and fro for a distance of several hundred.fect. Once here it did not take Marshal Fltzpat rick long to start the procession and the line of inarch was gone over in phort order, red tire blazing from al most every doorway, sky-rockets dart ing heavenward, and the vast multi tude cheering lustily for the different candidates. It was the most magnifi cent demonstration of the kind ever witnessed in Waterbury. and must have astonished people who have been telling us that there is no enthusiasm In the democratic party in Waterbury. .The Old Guard band of New Haven" accompanied Judge Bronson and party and the American band rendered sev eral selections during the evening and was heard to good advantage in the parade. City hall was crowded at S o'clock by people who wanted to make sure of a good seat, and after a long and patient wait for Judge Bronson and j friends to put in an appearance. Chair man Strobel called the meeting to order and introduced Dr Croffut. who spoke for over an hour and a lmlf and held the undivided attention of the audi ence until 10:30 o'clock, when he gave way to make room for the other speak ers. Dr Croffut is an entertaining speak er and instructed and entertained those who had the pleasure of listening to .him in a manner which pleased all. his remarks at times bringing forth ap plause that lasted for several minutes. He said it was the duty of the people to settle for good at this election whether this country is going to re main a republic or become a monarchy. After we have disposed of this ques tion, he said, then we can attend to otliQr matters, the money question in eluded. "We deny," said Dr Croffut. with great emphasis, "that free silver is more dangerous than free slaughter. We deny that brotherly love can be fired out of the mouth of a cannon. We refuse to stand by a candidate for the presidency whose hands are red with the blood of our fellow men in the Philippines and who seeks to hide in his library documents which give us the -right to demand of him the ques tion that was asked of Cain!" .--.Referring to the South African war, Dr Croffut said: "We desire to re pudiate the conduct of the administra tion during the Transvaal war, when England, the robber nation, wiped two sister republics from the map of the world with a sponge of blood. What aras the conduct of our representative at"vape Town, when brave old Cronje, afteXjBghtlng the flower of the British i arcnyVwenty to one, for three weeks, surrendW!? The stars and stripes were holted side by side with the Brit ish flag at our representative's head quarters, and by order of the president, to show how deeply the people of this country sympathized with England's efforts to crush out of existence those two struggling republics!" ' Although Dr Croffut had been speaking for over an hour and a half, he appeared to be becoming more and more popular when he was interrupted by the presence of the visitors. When - the out of town guests entered the audience almost went wild, and the . excitement was kept np until as many as could crowd onto the platform had taken their seats, after which Chair- man Strobel Introduced Judge Bron son amid tremendous cheering. Judce Bronson said In nart: "It is now more than fifty, years ago since' I left the town of Waterbury, but yet I find that after my departure the town has grown steadily and It has waxed great. As I came up twon to night and noticed the condition of the streets and .the appearance of your magnificent buildings I was very forcl- bly reminded of the changes that have ,,aken place In Waterbury since I lived . iere last.' The green In my day and ...tinie was nothing more than an ordi Wiry pasture, with a great deep hole lafHJie center of it,- filled with frogs thatsanfe their evening song to the people the village, has since been convertedMnto a magnificent public park. The i-orth end, where I -as a barefooted boy. tended to my cows, was at that time a vast undeveloped district, and little I thought that a great metropolis would ever rise there. You take a pride In your city, and I, too. take an equal pride in having been born here. It is an Inspiration to see - this magnificent demonstration. It is a sign that dissension has closed and - that yott have resolved to -turn the weapons you have been in the habi of using on each other upon the common foe. .If-there are to be. fights among democrats, let them be postponed until after election.' As the saying goes, if there i to be a fight it the fair, let. the fa'lr come off. first and the fight af" ferwarda. I am not here, gentlemen, to make any extended remarks. When I. was nominated I realized that I could not deliver adilresses . and attend to. the business end of the campaign, so I decided to look out for the business part of It and leave the speech making to younger men. I did not come here to-night to make a speeeB; I came here to see you, and as many of my friends as could be accommodated accompan ied me. With many thanks for this cordial greeting I shall now retire, and on the 7th of November, when I look over the returns I shall know what it is worth to have been born In Water bury." Judge Bronson was given an ova tion that must have stirred his heart. As he resumed his seat the audience shouted and roared with a vengeance, and kept it up until the chair rapped fnr rirder. . Oliver Gildersleev.e, candidate for congress, was the next speaker. He said he had not been apprised, oi mo fact that he was to be the nominee of his party till the day before nomina tion, so it was no wonder the papers referred to him as a new man in poli tics. He said he entered his father's, shipyards at the age of 17 and has pur sued'the business evt r since. He could split a rail to better advantage than. 1... ...... 1,1 ,1,.Hi-..,. o, oi1ilrts ""Rut" ue vii m ... .. . he said, "my father was a democrat. I never voted anything but the demo crat ticket myself, so that I might say I was born a democrat, have lived a democrat and exjrect to die a demo crat. We have had a good many politi cal parties during the short history of this country, the whigs, the knownoth iug party and lots of other parties that one does not hear much about in ship yards. They all have had 'their day, but the grand old democratic party has always been with us. sometimes in de feat, to be sure, but always in it as it is to-day, aud if I receive the united support of uiv party in this district that's all I'll want. If elected I shall devote my attention to the business in terests of the whole district. In going ovtr the district I find large numbers of bright boys, and wherever I see them I feel that we. should so legislate that the youth will see somVthlug ahead of them besides a little clerk ship with a corporation controlled by the trusts. I want to give them an opportunity to become something on their own account, and this can be ac complished in no better way than by having our industries spread through the different towns of 'the state, each plant looking out for itself, instead of all under one head, controlled by a gigantic trust or combine whose aim is to shut down a mill wherever they find it to their own advantage. Much might be said on this subject, but as the hour is late I shall not proceed fur ther. (Applause). Chairman Strobel then Introduced John H. Dillon of New Haven, who, ho said, could tell all about the delay on the trip from New Haven. Mr Dillon was greeted with tremendous applause. Mr Dillon said that if all the democrats of New Haven and Wa terbury would go to the polls on No vember (! as cheerfully as New Haven democrats came to Waterbury last night, the democrats of the two towns would want to come together again. 'Three cheers for John II. Dillon!" shouted Mayor KildulT. They were given with a yell and a roar that sliouk the building. William Kennedy, candidate for tho senate, was then Introduced, and It was some time before he could make him self heard above the din and shout of applause with which the announcement of his name was greeted. "This is a grand liberty loving meeting," said Mi Kennedy. "It is an outpouring of the citizens of Waterbury to show their appreciation of our candidate for gov ernor and the principles he represents." Mr Kennedy followed this np with an able speech on national and state issues. On tlie latter subject he said that Naugatuek was one of the most prosperous towns In New England un til the trust got hold of its industries and raised the prices of its manufac tures in some instances as high as 40 per cent without any increase in the price of labor. The raw material cost no more than usual, so that the ad vance was made- for the sole purpose of enriching the trusts. "Four years ago," he said, "I spoke oh this platform and warned the people of what was coming, and one of your citizens wrote a communication to the press the next day in w.hich he sought to deny the truth of what I had said, and rem'inded his readers that my speech was cal culated to cripple the industries of Naugatuek. Well, after four years I am able to appear here aud state that with all due respect to this man's years he was wrong and I was right. One if our factories that had not closed in nineteen years and paid men from S3 to $3.75 a day, has been shut down , over three months during the past tewlve months, and the combined earn ings of each individual In the pat eight 'months would not amount to 200. The trusts have struck Nauga tuek and it may be your turn next un less you do something to put a stop to them. A word about my competitor. He claims to stand well with the work ing people. Why? What has he done that a working man should vote for him? When he was In the legis'a ture he never introduced a bill In favor of the working people, but on the con trary, -he opposed every bill that was presented there socking to benefit the laboring classes. If any one doubts this he needs but call at the town clerk s office and look over the Journal for the last session of the general as sembly and see what he did to advance the Interne rr 4i, - i t . . . . ,,.

BRYAN IN NEW YORK ! New York, Oct 30. The east si.io welcomed William Jennings Bryan as they have never before welcomed anv mam Not with banners,, blarfnThands of music or the drilled marching" of uniformed men. but with their honest cheers, smiling faces and -waving hands.- . v , , , 8 ' How rnanv saw the a er after he had crossed Third avenue' cannot De computea. Forty thousand of ithem were packed in Hamilton Fish park and more thousands ' and thou sands lined, the. path of liisJayrney- Hamilton Fish park is bound by Sheriff, Pitt, . Stanton " ai)d Houston streets. It is the center of the great Hebrew population.- The small grand stand at its western end, outside the little public building, was a tiny island in a sea of upturned faces by 5 o'clock. Six:-o'clock , and 7 o'clock came and the waves of humanity had grown denser.. . ', ' ,. " , ,,. . f.Mr Bryan entered the stand at 7:20 on the arm .of Congressman William Sulzer. His eye lighted up and a hap py smile appeared as he saw the thou sands before !iiin waving their arms hysterically and cheering at the top of their voices. For ten minutes he stood before them bowing and waving his hand and begging for silence. At the request of Mr Harburger he firBt stepped on a chair that all might see him, and afterward on a table, shak ing his head, smiling and waving his hand to command attention. When he. spoke hla voice phowed but little the iefrec'ts of the twenty speeches he made before In New York state yester day.: It rang out from boundary to boundary, and all could hear him, Ten der Its spell they became as quiet as ueatfi. lie told them in .the begin ning that he had but ten minutes to stay with them. But he said: "I am glad to speak at this great meeting, representing the Hebrew race. I am glad to speak to the people who gave to the world Solomon, the wisest man, ana Moses, the lawgiver. I am glad to speak to a race occupying so great a place in the history of the worm, l am glad to speak to a race which testifies its loyalty to democrat ic . institutions. This government has as Its .foundation the principle that all are equal and should receive equal consideration. It has drawn to itself the best blood of all tho races and the best citizenship of the world.- To-day you are confronted with a choice of two things Industrial despotism or industrial independence. Under in dustrial independence you may choose what you may do and may be sure that you will enjoy the fruit of your labors; under industrial despotism there can be but oik; big magnet to which you all will be inevitably drawn." Further on. In speaking of tho largo standing army, Mr Bryan said: "I want the mothers happy in the con sciousness that their children may rise to any height in the arts of pence and not have the country filled by Rachels weeping for their first born. I want children taught the arts of pence, and not the science of war. A step to ward imperialism is a step toward monarchy. It you want in this cam paign to vote to deprive the Filipinos of their rights, be careful that it will not result in the depriving you of some of your rights. Wo want to tell the Filipinos that we are going to treat them as we fought to be treated in the war of the Revolution, as free men working out their own destiny in their own way. "The republican party, as was evi denced at the dinner at the Fifth Ave nue hotel the other evening by the speech of Senator Scott, are out and out. for the trusts, ami especially for the Standard Oil trust, and the spirit of the sentiment of the people, as they heard or the ill-timed remarks of the senator from West Virginia, are an earnest indication of what will be ac complished, not only in New York city, where the casual remark was made, but all over the United States, on elec tion daj. The republican party goes to tho laboring man and to the business man and appeals to them as if they were all animal, by saving. "What do you need, except a full dinner pail?' it does not tell them of the Insidious work it lias done and will continue to do in converting industrial inde pendence into industrial despotism; it does not tell them that it is taking away from them tho hope of inde-; pendence. No, it simply tells him that it lias in the past furnished him and will in the future furnish him. with a full dinner pail .although both these propositions are open to debate. "1 he government of the people, bv the people and for the people, as here tofore exemplified by this nation, is the fulfillment of the destiny which was ours from the foundation of the world; we are tho greatest nation on the earth, and I do not believe that the American people will ever abro gate their present rights or their fu ture destiny to Mr Hanna; do you? (Cries of No! No!) "I reiterate what I have repeatedlv said, the republican party is the revo lutionary party. It advocates a sweep ing change in our whole theory of, government; It wants a large army, instead of a small army; it wants a professional soldier, instead of a vol unteer citizen soldier; it wants a col onial policy similar to the colonial pol- ie'ies of Lairopeau nations, insteail of the international policy which ;'as made our nation the shadow of n. rock In a weary land for the king-ruled, downtrodden and oppressed of this world. - - "The treatment which the govern ment controlled by the trusts is at present, affording the Porto Ricans will call forth in that island a Pat rick Henry, a George Washington; one to cry for liberty, and the other to set the people free. The Porto Ri cans to-day are in the same position that our forefathers were in prior to the Revolutionary war. 'Taxation without representation" brought on that war;, and the same. policy pur sued in Porto Rico will call forth an other resolution," ' , . "a .
