York; Aug. 13.—When- MTV Bryan made his address Wednesday night, his face was pale, and his voice, though firm, yet showed sig-ns v of- hoarseness. The strain of.the continued .-'Aiso of his voice during his trip eastward-had been too much to allow of quick recovery.

The crowd went wild -with enthusiasm nnd rose as a man when Chairman Danforth stepped forward nnd. introduced Mr. Bryan. Then cnme w demonstration strongly reminiscent ol tlietuihult that raged 'in the , Chicago Coliseum ivhen Bryan -finished the effort preceding his nomination. Men and women rose to their feet and cheered. On the-platform,, in the boxes', ,iip'i'n the galleries' people were shouting- -like mad.

It Is fitting, however that r at this time. In the presence ol those here 'assembled, 1 speak at some length In 'regard to the campaign upon which we .'are 1 now entering. VVB do not underestlma.te-.-the forces arrayed against us nor are'/wo.unmindful of the Importance of'tho'Btr.U^Ele in which we are engaged; but, relying .for success upon, the righteousness' of our cause, we shall defend with atr.posslbla vigor the portions taken by our 1 party: .. . -' . Character of the Oppositlou. We are'i.-pot surpi'lse'd, said IVii'. Cryiin; to find arrayed at'alnat uu those who art the benellL-iiiries or ppvernmc-ni favoritism—they have read our iilatfnrm— nor to learn tha't^we must In thls-campiiiiin rac-' the hostility of those who.tlnd a pecuniary advantage In advocating the doctrine-of non-interference when [rrp.ar aggregations at wealth are trespassing upom.the rights of individuals. Such opposition is ' the hlKhflBt Indorsement which- could bo be- aiowed upon us. . . '-; Not a nlnloynl The Chicago platform has been condemned by some because It dissents from an opinion rendered,by the supremo court declarlns the Income tax-law unconstitutional. Our critics even 'go : HO far 'as. to am>ly the name anarchist- to. those -who stand upon that plank of tho platform. It must be remembered that wo expressly recognize tho binding .force of thj doclsion so long as it stands as a part of the law of the land. There is In Th* platform no BUggestion of an attempt .to., dispute the authority of the supreme court. The party IB simply pledged to "use. all the constitutional power .which remains after that decision, .or which may come from Its reversal by the court, as If may -hereafter be constituted." Is there any. disloyalty. In that pledge? ' ., '•" '" • • . ••• Has No Apology' to Offer. •'. When courts allow rehearlngs, ho. said, they admit that 'error Is possible: the late decision against the Income tax was rendered by a majority of .one after a.Tehearv Sii • While the money question overshadows all other Questions In Importance, I desire It distinctly understood, 'continued Mr Bryan, that I shall offer no apology for the income tax plank of the' Chicago platform. The last income>tax:.sought to ap- nortlon the burdens of government more (oultably among •those.who-enjoy the pro- 'ection , of the government. At present the expenses of the-, federal .government, collected through Internal revenue.. taxes ind import, duties, are especially burdan- loina-.upon the -poorer; classes of society.

It-they are, In fact, desirous of securing,bimetallism, we may expect them to'point-pat the evils of a gold standard .and defend .bimetallism ss a system.

The advocates of free coinage believe that In striving to secure the Immediate restoration of bimetal)Urn they are laboring In your behalf as well as In their own b&alf. A few of your people may prosper under present conditions, but the permanent welfare of New York rests upon the producers of wealth. This great city Is built upon the commerce of the nation and must suffer If that commerce t> 1m- nalred. You cannot sell unless the ncopln have money with which to buy, and thoy cannot obtain the money with'which to buy unless they are able<o sell their prod-; urts at remunerative prices. Production: of wealth goes before the exchange of wealth; those who create must secure a profit before they have anything to share with, others. You cannot afford to join, ihe money changers In supporting a financial policy whlcn. by.destroyinc the purchasing power of the products of toll, must In tK> end discourage the creation of wealth • . •-. - . - - .' ; I a?k, ! expect your cooperation.
