Lata this afternoon th work of tha cre dentials committee was concluded, and President Mitchell delivered hla annual ad dress. In his annual report President Mitchell urges that the convention be maderate in speech and conservative In action, adding: We should keep in mind that the enemies of labor and the opponents of trade union ism, as represented by the Manufacturers' association and tbe Cltisens' Industrial al liance, are ever ready to make capital out of the smallest indiscretion and to magnify out of ail reasonable proportion the slight est mistake that trade unionists may make. Th report then outllpe the situation In each district. Of th anthracite field he ays: It is a pleasure to report thst since the close of the anthracite strike the relations of operators and miners have grown stead ily more cordial. With very few excep tions the award of the commission has been rigidly observed and an era of comparative peace and contentment has reigned in that territory. Of central Pennsylvania the report says: rmrtnf the month of March the miners snd operators of th central district of Pennsylvania, report approximately ". men in lotnt conference in the oity of Altonna and consummated a wage agree ment which assured to our members a sub stantial Increase In wages snd for the firm time In the history of that field established the eight-hour work day.

The extension of organisation into Can- I a da. Montana and Washington Is men tioned. Taking th ' capitation tax eelved during December of each year as a basis of computation, the report says that the organisation has increased in member hip from 91.000 In 189 to Sft.MS in 1903, which does not Include members Idle or on strik. During the" last year there was a net gain of MS unions, making a total of LX3 nnlona In twenty-three districts.

Of th Colorado strik Mr. Mitchell says: Th strike in district 15 has been snd is a source of besvy expense to our orgsniaa- rkm. but our people ar stanomg nrm, ana much aa we desire an amicable1 and hon orable settlement, the uncompromising st- tltude of the companies leaves us no cnoice but to continue the contest until fair terms of settlement are reached or our people go down in defeat. - Th report refers to th causes for th Meyeradale and West Virgin, strikes and ujr Th result Is tbat proximately 1000 man are idle in these two districts and there appear to be no Immediate prospect of set tlement.

President Mitchell Insists upon ths uni versal adoption of th run-of-mins basta. On this th report says: I would advise that the demands of previous conventions be repeated and that the scale committee be instructed to mak an effort to have th Interstate agreement formulated upon a run-of-mlne basis.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 Special Tele gram.) A favorable report haa been or dered on the Rosebud Indian reservation bill. Congressman Burke of South Dakota haa been Instructed to prepare the report. continuation of the meeting held by he Indian affairs committee on Saturday the committees held an almost contlnu- ous session today. Ths morning session was wholly deVuted to consideration of whether congress should assume the right of taking th Indian lauds without th sanction of the Indians concerned. Upon that proposition the Indian committee In executive session decided by a vote ot 12 to I to open th Rosebud reservation to settlement without submitting the question to the Indians. This Is along he line of th supreme court decision that the gov ernment is a trustee for the Indiana and also upon the recommendation of the In terlor department. The afternoon waa devoted to the consid eration of the price to be paid for the lands included in the territory to be opened. After much discussion Major Lace J- of Iowa, suggested that the land entered upon during the first six months shall be held at $3 per acr and that land thst shall be entered upon during- the second six months shall yield 12.50 per sere. .There after the remaining land shall be disposed of under direction of the commissioner of the general land office by such methods and prices as he may determine. At one time It waa thought Congressman Curtis of Kansas, a member of the Indian committee would file a dissenting opinion against the action of the committee in tak ing the lands without the consent of the Indians but so overwhelming was the voie on the proposition that the government hnd a right to open Indian lands To settlement. providing of course that the Indian rights. were safeguarded, thtt Mr. Curtis. It Is understood, will file no objection to the opening of the Rosebud reservation under the new terms. Mr. Burke, by instrtipyon of the Indian committee, will draft a cw bill reciting the first treaty made with the Rosebud Indians and which was signed by three-fourths of the adults of that reservation, signifying their acceptance of C30 per acre. Later attempts, however, to secure their agree ment to this rr.ee were not successful, by reason of an cfflclal from the Indian office being called e'ie where. . ' Bilnar Over a, Milliem. A plere has teen mace that the lands in "the Rosebud agency to be opened 10 settlement phatl bring upward of ll.OOO.pnO to the Indians, and upon this theory the scale of prices has been mafie. Differences as to the construction of the bill have been minimised and for the first time In number of year It would seem as If th bill had a fair chance of passage. Hitchcock fa laqalsltlve.

(From Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, Jan. la. (Special Telegram. Bryan democracy reigned su;rm tor.lght iu Lincoln and th former presidential can didal was honored aa In th old daya. Th occasion waa banquet given to wel come him home after trip in foreign countries. More than K people sat at ths tables In the Lindell hotel and many tnor there were who could not secure tickets. For two houra preceding th banquet Mr. Bryan stood In the lobby of tba hotel anj received congratulations and welcome from the crowd. They wer strictly Brysn demo crats who attended, though few there, were who bore th name of Jacksonlan. Tbey were not numerous, however. Tbe others cam from all parts of tba stat and there were among them many prominent In the party. Those who expected fireworks from Mr. Bryan wer disappointed. Ho declared for the Kansas City platform and a candidate to stand upon It whose democ racy would not b an Issue of tb cam paign. His them was no surrender. James Ma nana n of Lincoln, former fusion candi date for congress, waa toastmaater and in troducing Mr. Bryan aald: Fellow Citizens; We have with us to night a guest a dialing uisned an an from .uiOpv. lie cornea, lu a manner, aa envoy txtraordinary uf the csar el Kusaia, tne emperor ot tin many, the pope of Horn a no the king 6f irelaud. As special repie sentative ot the last named, ne has pre. sented to me as baton of my authority to- nifcbt una blackthorn shilleiy, from th ou.d sou. i-iil I rotn tne otig where Jiriua buro (ought the battle ol Cloutarf. e are honored In the opportunity of enter Uuniiig him to whom stiii clings the homage and tne incense of the old world. it is my agreeable outy to act aa master of ceremonies, sua to do what I ca to make his excellency ieel aa much at horn aa poMsiola in Una strange company. As general Interpreter I will endeavor to ex plain to him ths meaning of this occasion and Interpret the speecnea that ar de livered at lnui as the evening progresses. Let It be understood. Monseigneur Bryan, that while tee walls are nut decorated like 1'arta. ui oaf, and while this dinner is -.ot -nrved .n courses, ami ma wsler w drink -iocs not sparkle like champagne at Sherry s j. e ofler no apology. Emerson said: The b eve. soul rates iiself too high to vah." -.relf by the splendors of its table and dr.pvr.tr. It gives what It hath, and all It bat .. It Its own majesty can tend . better gntc t bannocks ami fair vetvr than belling 'o cJty feasts." , This affair Is democratic. Tti had heasd, doubtless. Lefoi you left Europe ol th democratic party. No msn can read th history of this republic and not learn tbat Its very brigntest pages tell the story of tb people's iove for th principle of de mocracy. You as befor you th demacraaix of Nebraska; more, yuu see tbe patriotic democracy of 'he west; more, you see th very soul and conscience cf the unterrtned democracy of this nation. You have fted In sumptuous banquet haa Is, you hsv talked wlLa cxars and kings and emperors and the pope, you have stood in tbe pres ence of this earth's mightiest monarch, but you have never stood among better, braver men than you do tonight In Ne braska. From among these very men, at a time when democracy's eky was dark, there cams a splenaid apirlt of right, ana a heroic man of might with a miLle pur. pose to tight for the holy causa of hu inanity. , It requires courage to defy Intimidation a higher form of courage to resist tempt, tlon. It requires tb very bravest soul to do both riKht in a storm of vituperation. And that is the kind of courage that iv oiil.'i the liivnucracy of Nebrsrka today. These veterana here know the moaning of loyalty to party, they are reasonabl but determined, they sre charitable but lust, they are resting now but not asleep. They are not hero worshipers, but they ar th kind of men on whom leader may rely with confidence, feeling sur sll th time that while he maintains the truth and his own Intes-rlty he can in tha fiercest fight the darkest night feel their arms about him and their hearta beat In sympathy and support. . Bryan Replies. Mr. Bryan raid: Instead of talking of concessions snd co ! nes. it la time for honest and njrgre msIv action. W are confronted wit a condition that may well alarm tha though ful and patriotic W find corrup tion everywhere. Voters are bought at so much per head, representative In our city govemmeniB are profiting by their positions, and even federal officers are se'.l. lng their influence.

The protective tariff schedule illus trate It; our financial system rests upnrt It: the trusts hide themselves behind It, snd Imperialists are substituting this theory for the constitution. Is It atrangn thst money la used to carry 1 -tlons? if a party makes certain ctasaea rich by law, will It not naturally turn to those claw for contributions during the campaign If congress votes million of dollar in n rally to tariff baron, money magnates and monopolists. Is It not natursi that aldermen should traffic In th small legis lation of s city council, and If officials high and Knr use th government s If It were private asset. Is it Burr-rising that manv fndlvlduala who are without official I j1 tlon yie'd to th temptation to Bell tha only politic Influence they have, namely, ths ballot. What Is the remedy There Is but one remedy an appeal t the moral sense of the country an awakening of th public conscience. And how- cub this apnea! be made? Not bv showlnr a greater desire for th spoil of offlca than for reform, but by turning s deaf esr to the contemptible cry ef "any thing to win.' and by announcing an honest snd straightforward position oei every pub lic question. If we would appeal to sin. cere men we must ourselves be sincere, snd our sincerity can be shown only by a nlilins-nesa t suffer defeat rather tha abahdon the cause of good government. .
