Vol. XX. -BT BAKERSFIELD, KERN COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, WHON[.;'S[jAY'. SKi'TKMBKk !>. IMS. Xo. 33 DEMOCRATIC JLOST^PACK ARMORY LAST NIGHJ TELLING EXTRACTS FROM THE GREAT SPEECH OF THEODORE A. BELL THAT THRILLED AUDIENCE "The Vice Presidential office is an important one, for he who occupies It may be called upon to assume the duties of President. And who is Sherman? One of the big five that does the bidding in the House of Representatives of the corporate Interests. A willing worker with Cannon, and to the extent that it was Cannon himself who put his O. K. upon Sherman at Chicago by placing him In nomination." Replying to a statement made by Hearst that many years aggttfiryan said in Congress, that the : Nnoring men were "public beggars," Mr. Bell said: "I have not heard from Mr. Bryan on this subject. I do not need to. For I know It is a wilful), contemptible lie, and it was uttered by a political mountebank, the greatest hypocrite that the State of California has ever produced." "The Chronicle gives a column and a half of Its front page to Hearst's Labor Day speech, and it seems to me that he is one of the most valuable assets of the Republican party. Hearst's New York paper is mortgaged for $4,000,000 and before this campaign is over the name of the mort-' gagee will be disclosed. And I believe I can safely prophesy that when that disclosure comes It will be found that his name Is Edward H. Harriman." "Theodore Roosevelt I* one thing and the Republican organization is another. The Chicago platform is the party's contract with the people, and it contains nothing of Roosevelt's efforts to accomplish great reforms. The President may have nominated Taft, but the interests he has fought dictated the platform. Taft is the antithesis of Roosevelt. The : latter is aggressive and impulsive, sometimes right and sometimes wrong. The oth. er is an aristocrat by temperament." "It is not Roosevelt that the Democratic organization opposes, but an administration that has defeated Roosevelt's every effort. A reluctant Congress was ever against him, a Congress absolutely in control of the reactionaries. And it was these influences that wrote the platform at Chicago and that nominated Sherman for the Vice Presidency. Send back these tame Congressmen, leave them In po- session and what could Taft accomplish, however well meaning he might be?" i "You men who toil, it is for you to j say whether you will show your ap- 1 preciation of the party that has extended the hand of friendship to you. If you do not, if you fail to show by your votes that you are willing to stand firmly for the right, make no : mistake as to the result. The Repub- • lican party will say In the future, 'It i does not matter, we can get their j votes anyway.' And the things that you demand as your right will never I be considered." There have been more tumultuous t the effect that corporations will gain i •political meetings in Bakersfleld than ; great power, and corruption In high j the groat gathering which Theodore Hell addressed last ulght at Armory places will follow, endangering the republic. Not Bryan had given utter- Hull. There have been meetings at ance to this sentiment, but Abraham ; which there was more noisy demon- j Lincoln himself had spoken the pro- ( phetic words. ; According to Senator Beveridge .stratlon, at which the cheers were «:Uiser to the surface, when open en tlnislasm ran greater riot, but never IB the history of local political gatherings was there one that equaled that <r, last night In concentrated Interest, never before was there an audi- •ence that sat us one Individual, earnestly Intent on missing no word that loll from the lips of the speaker; that ifoinuinej all but motionless through •on>j and one-half hours of a calm but forceful exposition of the issues that make political •Division between men. And the platform attitude of this Nestor of California politics does not encourage ttu: political enthusiast to noisy demonstrations. Filled with his subject, curtain of the justice of his position, ur. earnest advocate of the principles ol his party, Theodore Bell speaks right on, logically, driving home the truths as he sees them, impatient of the applause that interrupts, hurrying on with impetuosity from subject to subject, but always returning to clinch the central idea of a rounded argument that is followed step by step by his every hearer. This, in brief, was the history of iaat night's great political gathering, ami when at 1U o'clock, after an hour In : his Youngstown keynote speech, Bry- i an was a great moral teacher, a preacher whose place wus in the pul- , pit. He was too good a man to be i President. Yet all his opponents only | twelve years ago, were going up and '. down the land calling Bryan an anar-!

Robert Saville. who was In a cart nearby, heard the cries and with friends came to her assistance. The girl's would-be assailants then drove rapidly away in the darkness down state leglslalon. There Is no twilight zone, said Mr. Bryan, between the nation and the state In which the exploiting Interests can take refuge from both. There IH no neutral ground where, beyond the jurisdiction of either sovereignty, the plunderers of the public can find a safe retreat. As long as a corporation confines Us activities to the state In which it was created, It la subject to ous devotion to the work entrusted U them, and those, unscrupulous "Napoleons of Finance" who use railroads us mere pawns In a great gambling game without regard to the rights of employes or to the interests of the patrons. It is in the interest of honest railroading und legitimate Investment that the Democratic party seeks to ascertain the present value of the railroad properties and to prevent for the future the watering of stock and the issue ol fictitious capitalization; und it is in the interest of both the railroads und the public that It seek* only such reductions in transportation rates as cuu be made without wage reduction, without deterioration In the servile and without injustice to legitimate investments.
