AUDIENCE HEARS THE ISSUESJPSSED Williams and Shepherd Hold a Large Gathering for 3 Hours With Their Eloquence the father of Injunctions could not so see It. Tho speaker's discussion of this subject was given the closest alien- tion, and even those who had been misled as to the injunction plank wore convinced of the Justice of tin; j Democratic position. ! In conclusion. i Reverting to men. .Mr. \Vllllania j punctured the •claim that Taft is a "man of high achievement." He has ' lield a Job and drawn a salary all his life. His most responsible position was ruling over 12,000,000 people In the Philippines with the United States army behind him. Not a very hard task. "And I submit that train- ing of that kind, to rule over mOc lions of inferior, subjugated broWU ; mon, is not. the best training for a I 1'ivsldent. of the United States." Mr. \villlatus paid glowing trlbuW j tn Bryan as the foremost American. : HP pointed out. his grerft moral worth, I his broad statesmanship that com- j niand the respect of the rulers and ( potentates of the world and the glow- i inn peroration brought forth a storm of applause. "I am afraid our candidate Is aq 'also ran,' said one campaigner. "Worse than that," answered tha other. "He's just, an 'also spoke'. "-" Washington Star. For exactly" two and a half hours, 'George Fred Williams of Massachusetts held the tittention of a big and- ience at Scrlbner's last nifjht. but , even us he drew to the close of the ! longest political speech ever delivered in tbis city the audience closely followed his' convincing logic, enjoyed his keen wit, and applauded his Mights of eloquence. Wage earners, who made up a large part of the satherliiK willingly sat for beyond their usual bed time to listen to the masterful presentation or the injunction issue. Every man who has a deposit In a bank and ever/ man who hopes to, heard the guarantee plan as affirmed by the Denver platform, and the nominees of the Democracy, and when the speaker in brilliant peroration, spoke of men, when he compared the life work of Taft with that of Bryan, the audience became wildly enthusiastic. Good natured laughter following the record of Taft as a- man of high achievements gave way to a storm of will) th,- He told of the Insurance- abuse, of the exposures that follow,.,|, when II was shown that groups '>; men had corruptly used the funds 11! iiii.n and women to advance their ov n Interi-sts.

Another Case, To emphasize the evils of high fl- nace, Mr. \Vllilams told how Ryan and Whitm applause over the words of eloquence that described the greatest living American. "Who is he?" said the speaker, at the close of a rounded sentence, an 1 the great crowd, as with one shouted back, "Bryan." Shepherd Introduced. It was 8:15 when the speakers of the evening passed onto the prettily 'decorated platform. In the party besides Messrs. Williams and Shepherd were E. M. Roberts, Chas. F. Johnson. Judge Brundage, Capt. C. A. Fuller, a life-long Republican, Assemblyman Rowen Irwin, Thomas A. Baker and others. Mr. Roberts presented Mr. Barlow as chairman of .the evening and the man who curried Kern county for congress last year was given a hearty greeting. Without preface he introduced W. C. Shepherd, and paid tribute to him as a man whose life was as an open book. The Venturan was heartily received, and in a clover speech of a half hour, he made the most favorable impression on his hearers. Mr. Shepherd, after spealung of the honor that was his in being made the nominee for Congress of a great party, I cost of production in the greatest district In the state, if not in the United States, took up the gravity of the political situation. He drew sharply the line that exists between the army of men who produce the wealth of the nation and the' three other Democrats, heads of the Metropolitan Street Railway Co. of New York, had raised a half million of dollars to encompass the defeat of Bryan In l!>0i). The President has no control over municipal affairs, but these men knew that If Bryan became President, the moral unllft he wniil.l give to governmental voice, affairs would sweep the robbers out of their seats of power. Campaign Publicity. The reform element in the Republican party had tried to prevent the use of money in politics for corrupt purposes. A delegate to Chicago, a follower of a Democrat who calls himself a Republican, l,a Foleltte. bad presented a campaign fund publicity plank for the platform. It was defeated in committee by a vote of !i2 W> 1. He carried the finest ion to the floor of the convention and it was beaten there by SSI to US. At Denver the sumo pro;,osium met with tbi' approval of the representatives of the Democratic party. "God Knows," Says Taft. On the subject/ of the tariff the speaker said Mr. Taft is in a delemma. For the first time In the history of the party, it has declared for a revision of the tariff, for a cut representing the difference between the here and abroad with a fair profit for the manufacturers. Never before did the party place >he question tinon this basis. Ami only a few months ago, when Mr. Taft was asked "What will the; man do who is starving and cannot get work," In few who reap the profits of the labor, said "God knows." Taxation is re- of that army. The few are powerful through political control, and that control comes to them through the favor of the Republican party. Where Shepherd Stands. "I stand with the army of producers of wealth upon this side,' said the speaker, and If I should be your representative, my voice and my vote will be recorded upon this side on every question affecting the interests of the people. Mr, Shepherd paid his compliments to Uncle Joe Cannon and his pledge that If elected to Congress he. would never vote for him for speaker, elicited a storm of applause. Mr. Shepherd discussed briefly the question of guarantee of bank deposits. "I do not know whether my opponent is for this great measure or against It, but you have the right to ask him. Press him for an answer. If he says he is opposed to it, then it Is your duty to vote against him. I would not support my own brother, or my nearest and dearest friend, If he declared himself against the measure that insures the safety of the money of the bank depositors," Get an Answer. Mr. Shepherd expressed himself In favor of fixing railroad rates so as to pay a fair return on the investment, sponsible, but Mr. Taft passed It up to the Almighty. Human life is more j precious than aught else, and Mr. Tuft's answer shows the necessity for a new school of statesmen. The Late Panic. The speaker discussed the late panic In most telling manner. He showed how the weiiltn of the country gravl- j tatea to Wall street where It is used; by the gamblers. The banks of the' country had their money In the hands of Wall street when the crash came. They could not get it for their own use. The panic was on. Cortelyou came to the rescue—of Wall street. Millions were placed there, and the gamblers used it not for the relief of the country but for further speculation. They exploited the wrecked banks. They took the stock of the Tennessee Coal and Iron Company, and amalgamated it with the stool trust. They thus crushed out the only opposition to the trust. Then somebody recalled that this was against the Sherman anti-trust law, and representatives rushed to Wash) ington and laid the matter before j Roosevelt. "Will we be prosecuted?" I they asked and Hoosevelt said "No." j The paper trust Incident and Joe i Cannon's connection therewith was according to the physical valuation | '"scussed and the speaker directed at of the roads, and here again he touch i ed a popular chord, "And I wan't to I say to you," said the veteran in <-»n j elusion, "that it' it lie round that tin- government cannot control these great public servici- corporation.-, canm" ; vo-'iilati' thoi! 1 rc-l.itioiir. v. i<l, j tin- people, then I am In favor of ,^'n i eminent ownership." , "Hurrah for the Yankee." i Then the M;t-.-:ic husetts Mi: | 'm rodiiced. and h-- was, j voice in tile roar »i i'ie ; rah for ill" V : I'd I -nigh foi:.. i Hams jnini' : . illl'tiol!
