THE OMAHA DAILY BREi'tHlllDAY , SEPTEMBER 7 , 18U. !
IS NOT THAT WAY ANY MORE "Ojcbne" Davis Ecfusca to EuttTrctafoi Domrcratio Party on Djmantl , WHY HE LIKES THE POPULIST PARTY tlul Ifo I'ropoics to Atiiitidnn It If It Abandon * Hie People Content lloltTccn AliiMe * und Corporation * I'ower * nml Iho Money ( Juratlun. "Cyclono" Davis of Texas nnd John II. Power * , pop'il'st ' ' candidate for state treas urer , delivered populist speeches at Jeffer son square last e\onlng to nn audience of ibout 1,000 men. Da\ls Is the populist can- tldate for congress In the Fourth district ol Texm , and Is nn orator who has already attained a reputation in nearly nil of the western states. In his speech last cvenlnc he atked Us hearers to forget all their sym pathy with the views of the three political parties and resolve themselves Into patriotic American citizens. As for himself ho hail belonged to the democratic party lor many years. II the democratic party told him to go out and butt a tree , ho no\er asked but ono question , and that was to Inquire Just how hard Iho democratic pirty wanted the tree butted. He had always voted for lha yellow dog and for anybody and anything on the earth tint had betn labeled demo cratic Now ho belonged to no party , liul for four years had affiliated with the popu lists ; but when that party abandoned the people ho proposed to abandon It. Ho then discussed the cardinal urlnclplts of the populist party. Ho declared that under the Declaration of Indep3ndence all men were created equal , with certain Inalien able rlchts. Under the lav.sas they now exist there were two kinds of rights , natural and vested , the natural rights lielni ? tlio e guaranteed by the Declaration of Independ ence and the constitution , nnd the \ested rights b Ing those conferred upon corpora tions. Man , the speaker contended , wm en titled to the rights given him by his Creator. Corporations , he asserted , were artificial men , created by law. The present conflict was not between capital and labor , but between the real man that God made nnd the artificial man , the lifeless , bloodless , pitiless , inercl- Irta , con clouslcss , cjcleES , tearless , human- Ityless man made by law. This artificial man , standing for the great corporate In terests of the nation , now owned a largo portion ol the lands ot the United States , owned the railroads and the mines , owned the banks and controll d the money Hy a scratch of aen / the prlco of coal could be advanced enough so that the fires In 1,000,000 homes would go out Icfore winter commenced. Ily a scratch of a pen railroad transportation rates could be advanced enough to take from the farmer all the proat on his year of toll I3y a scratch of a pen 1,000,000 employes of railways and factories could be deprived of employment and left penniless on the verge of winter To this extent the artificial man , the corporations , were the masters of the people. The popullstBi , he asserted , demanded the ownership of the land by the people , the ownership of the railroads by the govern ment and the control of the money by the people. Alluding to some of the arguments In favor of government ownership of rail roads ho claimed that last year the railroads pild out $15.000,000 for attorneys' services the people paid rallnml commissions $92 , 000,000 ; the government paid $24,000,000 foi hauling the malls and $10,000,000 for trans portation of congressmen , soldiers and gov ornmcnl employes. These millions all cami out of the pockets of the people In the end and If the government owned and opcratet the railroads Is would save this annual out liy. and the saving on these Items aloni v ould pay for the railroads In thirteen years In conclusion the speaker advise I l&borlni men to stand together , vote thlr conviction ami refute to ba ltd any longer by the eli parties. Mr. Powers spoke of the 4.009,030 o tramps roaming over the country , and as crlbcd the existence of the tramps to th money sj stern fostered by the old parties. Both speakers will address the peoples o South Omaha , this evening , and anothe meeting will bo held at Jefferson squar tomorrow evening , at which "Cyclones" Davl will cpiak entirely upon the money question f-ci.nth Uiiril MMiillsli ttupulillui IK.

C Although no definite proposition was fcrmally adopted or dis cussed today by the transcontinental lines , a much m re hopeful feeling existed when the association broke up than hnd been the case at any time previously since the con ference began. Some excitement existed here today In passenger circles over alleged deals with brokers which some roads are accused ol making In connection with Grand Army tickets. The sale of these tickets will be gin ailurd. y. The restrictions which were at first adopted to prevent bcalplng havt all been removed. It U claimed blocks ol the return portions of these tickets , with tilt going coupon clipped oft , have been sold tc Chicago brokers. They read ta points all o\er the webt and southwest and their un limited sale will \ery materially Interfere with the regular rates.

At a m ctlng of the county commissioners yesterday afternoon a resolution offered by Paddock caused \vordy conflict that for ix moment savored of the good old times when the nar correspondent was Invariably as signed to cov3r the meetings of the board The resolution was simply to the effect that the county clerk bo Instructed to advertise for bids tor not to e\cacd 1C 000 > ards of grading on the Mlllard road , just west of where the grading for macadam ends Williams opposed the resolution , stating that the road In question was In better con dlt'on than CO per cent of the country roads and the proposed expenditure \vas alto gather uncalled for at the present time Ho Intimated that Paddock had not Intro duccd the resolution \vlth any Idea of having It passed , but simply to feel the pulse o the board. This was Indignantly repudiated by Pad dock , vi ho took the nn-crtlon as a persona reflection on his Integrity , but a motion ti dofrr action on the resolution until the nex nuetlng ended the combat and the belliger ents rested on their arms.
