Trip With Address at De
troit Last Night.
Detroit, Mich., April 10. Wm. J
.Bryan, tonight concluded a two davs
speaking trip through .Michigan, with
an address here. Bryan arrived at
o'clock from Jackson, Michigan, wher
no delivered nn address this afternoon.
He wan given an enthusiastic recep
tion when ho was ese.uit.ed to the plat
form. He pointed out the growth In
the popularity of Democratic policies,
distinguishing as he proceeded be
tween the Democratic policies, as he
expressed it, of the president and the
nn Democratic policies of the presi
dent. Taft Promise Nothing,
Speaking of reform he said:
"Taft, who seems to be regarded as I
a representative of reform in the Re-
publican party, (I ,;; not mean to
slight Senator La Follette, a real re
former, but he does not seem to meet
with the favor om the Republican
leaders) gives no promise of effective
relief from the trusts, either throimh
administration or legislation.
i no people , however, understool
tho trust question better than ever
e . t ...
uiiore ami win, i th;nx, demand the
enactment of a law embodying tho
Democratic Idea that private mono
poly Is indefensible and Intolerable.
On the Tariff.
"On the tariff question the Demo
cratic JWolt.UU Inmlou r-"
and now we have, the Republicans ill
B neck and neck race to see w ho can
make the loudest promises in favor of
tariff reform without really reducing
the tariff. Taft was in the lead at
first, but Vice President Fairbanks
has already passed him. ami is now
already four months ahead of the
special session Idea."
The speaker approved railroad leg's
lation as far as it has gone, but wants
Discussing imperialism, Bryan re
ferred to the demand for four new
battleships and congratulated con
press for cutting it down to two. He
used it to Illustrate the evils of Im
perialism and said the Democrats had
for several years been calling atten
tion to the fact that the Colonial pol
icy, If persisted In, will not only
"weaken our attachment to the doc
trine of self government, but Increase
our army and navy and involve us in
all the perils of a land grabbing pol
icy." He continued:
"There Is danger of war in the cul
tivation of the military spirit, and the
best guaranty of peace is to be found
in the establishment of r reputation
for fair dealing, and In the considera
tion of the rights of others."
