Mr. Chairman, Ladles and Gentlemen, Fellow -Democrats: With the Inspiring strains of that national song still ringing In our ears, who can doubt the issue of this campaign? That Issue has been well stated by your pn.-sldlng officer. Stripped, us he says, of all verbal disguise, It Is an issue of common honesty: itn issue between the Honest discharge and the dishonest re pudlatlon ol' public and private obligations. It Is a question as to wlR'ther the powers ot this government shall bo used to protect honest industry or to tempt the citizen to dishonesty. On this question honest men cannot differ. It Is one of morals and of Justice. It Involves the existence of social order. It Is the contest for civilization Itself, If It be disheartening to democrats u.id the lovera of free Institutions to find an Issue of this character projected Into a presidential campaign, this, meeting furnishes us wltli an Inspiring truth of how fhat Issue wll! be met by the people. A. democratic con ventlon may renounce the democratic faith, but the democracy remain* faithful to democratic principles. Democratic lenders may betray a convention to the populists, but they cannot seduce the footsteps of democratic, voters from the pathway of honor and of Justice. A candidate bearing the mandate of a democratic convention may In* thin hall open a canvas leveled against the foundations of social order, and he beholds the. democratic masses confronting him on the ground of defense. Mr. Bryan Criticised. Wb xvould look In vain through the speech delivered hero t-ne weelt ago to find a true Statement r-f th-3 :ssue involved in this canvass. Indoud. 1 bel!ev<< it Is doubtful if the candidate himself quite understands tho nature of tl-<). I'nich wtiien lio professes, I say this not In criticism of his ability, but In Justice- to his morality. I believe that if he himself understood the inevitable consequences of the doctrines which he preaches that his own Imnds would bo the very first to tear down the platform on Which he stands.- But there was one statement In that Bpeoch which wus very free from ambiguity, pregnant with hope and confidence to the lovera of order. He professes his un- qiies'tloned ticllef In the honesty of the American niaiisen, and he quoted Abraham Lincoln In .support of the faith, that was iri"hlm. "Well, J. don't believe that the faith of Abraham -Lincoln was ever more slg- nlllcantly.'-iisatlned than In the appear- anco wlilch'MrV.nryan presented upon this platform'jln ' the'- 'changes that have come over the' spirit and the tone of popullstlc eloquence', ainpo.thf) Chicago convention. the rights- of'.every citizen and protect those natural : ;prlvilecos against any Invasion ijro'm whatever source, or however powertii;i) might be the antagonizing elements. 8L -. , • ^ -The One Qncntlon. In the'tlmo to which I must confine myself to-night I can do nothing but examine that one question which Mr. Bryan him- eelf declares to. bo tho overshadowing 1s- suo of this campaign. I am a little puzzled when I read this speech to decide Just what Mr. Bryan himself Imagines will bo tho fruit of a chance In tho standard of value throuirhout'the courtry. ' . '• '•';-. I will Imagine that-Mr. Bryan Himself may bellevs:-that in .aonno.way.or other ho li going to-"benefit the tollers of this country. He says'he Is, but he (Jecllnos.to show us how. For my part, I am willing- to Btato hero'.that if Mr, Bryan could.show.., me that by any means.known to Heaven or earth and revealed to the comprehension of man--that wagos could be Increased, I will bo',ready to support him here and now.... Where' the ruto of wages lahlgh there;muet be prosperity. Where the rate of wag-ear Is low there must be distress.. If, then, Mr. Bryan can show me that by enforcement of any part of his programme wages will bo Increased In this country, I will not'only support him, but I will recognize him as the wisest orator that ever opened his mouth on a platform slnco the beginning of the world. J'urpoBC of the PopnllHtn. It Is perfectly clear that tho purpose ol tho populiate te to put up the prices of certain -commodities; Mr. Bryan's language Is that he Is going to Improve the conditions of the people of this country, I do not suppose he claims that he can multiply tho number of chairs upon this .plat- 1 form or upon this floor, although ho has shown his capacity to empty them. If he Is going to'work any change In the conditions of men he must Increase the material possession of eome part of the community. Now, .if he got -possession of the government to-morrow, he would not create one single thing of value by any exerel<30 of governmental power In the world. .No. It requires the,labor.c-f man,.aid the hiti-r of man alone, to'create v--' 'i. A-governmentlne'ler c'• . uei'QUa,.bo- what wj woulg; tjuy^ and get ten per c«nt. more for wfiat we would sell, and W? Would be, exactly In. the sume place we occupied bjfore, Therefore, II Is fair to assume trjtt Is not Ihd lame and Impotent conclusion yi'hlch the nopullf revolution contemplates. What, then, la It7 It In an increasi*. In the price gf commodities find allowing •labor to shift for itself. If the price oi commodities be Increased and the price ol labor be left stationary, why, that means a cutting down of the rates of wages. If, Instead of a dollar which consists of a given quantity of gold equal to a hundred cents anywhere In the world, with the purchasing power of 100 cents, the laborer Is to .bo paid In dollars worth 50 cents each, . why, ho can only buy half as much with a . day's watrcs as he buys now. - . ' Ftict* for 'WaKC-Eanuirr*. Wage-earners, Mr. Bryan says, know that' while n, sold .standard raises the purchasing power of the dollar It also mn.kea It more dllHcult to obtain possession of that dollar. They know that employment H less permanent, loss of w&rlv more probable aiid. 1 reemploymcnt Iras certain. If that means anything, it meana that a cheap dollar would give him more employment, more frequent .employment, mon; work, rind a chance to get reemploymcnt after he WHS dlschurR-ed. If. that menus anything, It rne;u)3 that iC the laborer Is willing to have 'the''wages cut down he will get more work. But a diminution In the rate of. wages doo-* not increase the scope of employment. The-rnorc abundant the product the higher (he wages. There cannot b<j an abundant product unless labor is extensively em- ploye'fl. Mr. Bryan would have you be- 'llc'vo-that prosperity is ;idvanc*.-Ll by chonp- cnlnjr the rate of wages, but tin. 1 fall In the 'rate of wages always comes from a narrow 'production, and narrow production means .that- there Is little demand for labor In the 'market. '• : A I'opulKstlc Metaphor. • The pretense that the furmer of Nebraska Is suffering under the weight of :i mortgage 'contracted under a metal which hns stead ily- Increased In value is but a popullstlr •metaphor. Two-thirds of the farmers have Ti'o mortgage debts wlmtc-ver. I do not bollcvc'thcro Is five per cent, of them that owe.-a:mortgage over three years old, during which, time there has been no change In the.' value of the metal. This proposal of 'the populists !s an intent to enlist the "•farmer l:i a conspiracy to reduce the wages paid' this labor that he mn.y have a larger proportion of his own products: and they are willing to cut down the wages of every man who.wor.ks In cities, who tolls at the bench, who digs In the mines, who manages tho train. In tho hope that they can ride Into power on a wavu of cupidity and greed awakened in the breast of tho voter. But. my friends, It-is a triumphant vindication of American citizenship that this attempt to enlist-the farming and agricultural members ol this community into thla conspiracy has- failed, .miserably, utterly, absolutely. .Every western state which in 1890 and in 1S92 fell Into th«' hands of the populists and went Into the farmers' alliance, before their real purposes were executed, '.was purified and the popullstlc forces were-scattered out of existence when tho' farmers -of this country understood precisely-.'what • the populists meant for his welfare was really for his ruin.. Appeal* to Uiu T.oilcri).. Men of New York,"'tollers of America, guardians of- your own homes, will you allow your rate of wages to be affected (cries o£ "Never," "Never") by any mar. who-never has paid wages at nil If he could get out of it? Will you submit to this conspiracy between the professional farmers ' the- farmers who cultivate the quarrels of'thelr neighbors, farmers who labor with tholr Jnws, populist agitators of the west, and-tho unreconciled slaveholders of the south? 'This is'a conspiracy between profosBtonal farmers who want, to pay low wages arid' tho unreconciled fOaveholder who would llko to pay no wages at all. Here Is the real root of this conspiracy. Underlying the whole scheme of civilization Is-the confidence men have In each other -Confidence In their honesty; confidence- In their-integrity; confidence In their Industry: confidence in their future Anything that attacks the basis of human-'confidence Is a crime against civilization and a" blow against the foundation of social order.' HttB No Rotrrutn. • TI do not regret this campaign. The time has come when the people of this country •will show their' capacity for self-government They will prove that the men who have led the world. In the pathway of progress will bo jealous guardians of liberty and of order. They are not to be seduced bv appeals to their'cupidity or moved'by throats of Injury. They will forever and Jealously.guard and trim the lamp of enlightenment and progress. They will over relentlessly press and crush under tlieir heels the naming torch of populist dls- • Bent populist agitation and populist destruction When this tldo of. agitation shall have receded, this tide of populist agitation this assault upon common honesty and upon: industry shall have been abated forever the foundations of. this republic will- romuln undisturbed. This government will still.-shelter a people. Indtesolubly wedded to liberty and order, Jealously forbidding any distinction of burden or of privilege, conserving property, maintaining morality, resting forever upon the broad--basis of American patriots and American Intelligence.

Washington, Aug. 'JO. — Unless tli wishes of Chairman Butler and the members of the executive cojnmitte 1 are set aside, Mr. Watson, populist can didatc for the vice presidency, win no be officially notified of his uoniinatior for that place. Ch.iinnan Butler Tues day nig'ht, while declining to make anj specific statements on tlie subject, said that a failure to no'tif.yvyould notbeiin usual, for the reason Iliatthi 1 populist* had never yet notirVrl their candidate? Now th.it the cnrmniftee have decided •upon Washington as the- headquarters Chairman Butler's next duly will be to secure the proper sort of abuikling-, the small rooms now occupied being entirely inadequate. Chairman'Faulkner, of the democratic congressional committee, has offered Senator TJiitler a portion of the Y\"onnley hotel, now occupied bj the congressional committee, and 1 upon \\hich an option is held. Senator Ent- Jer is favorably impressed with Ihc location, and in view of the fact that there will be more or less of unity of action by the democrats and populists, it is believed that Chairman Butler will accept the offer. Chairman Untler de nied that any pool ing-arrangement for the circulation ol literature had been or would be arranged between the democrats and populists, but admitted thai they would work together in the utmost harmony. It was decided by the committee Tuesday night that there should be one head foi- t.lie'populist executive committee and the congressional committee, nnd Senator Butler will, therefore, preside o-.-er nil the work. The labors of. the representative committees will, however, be divided and will continue along the lines already established.

Telegrams from many places in Xew York inviting the young candidate to m'al;c.-addresses have been received by Mr. Bryan, but he has been obliged to decline many of these requests. What Mr. Bryan will -do while in the western part of the state he- is not yet ready to announce, but will do so witfcin aduy or two. Wednesday afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Bryan went'to'Jxhinebeck to visit Kllerslie,. the estate of Gov. Morton. The visit was in the nature of a private jaunt, • Gov. MpV'ton is in the Adirondack. 1 ;, .

A BUY AN Chairman Bynuin tant Thlnki It an Impor- lKn Uocnniout. ' 'Indianapolis, Ind.; Aug.; 19. — Chair- the national democratic party, stated Wednesday that it can now be positively asserted that every state in tho union, except Nevada, Idaho and Utah, and possibly one southern state, will »end a full delegation to the lndianaj>- olis convention. The "^ound moi)ey"heudquartershave so&Jred what the3 - consider a mighty valuable campaign document in tlie shape of a letter, alleged to have been written by Nominee Bryan to George M. Carden, of Dallas, Tex., February IS, IS'JG. The letter, they say, justifies the "sound money" boltand destroystha criticism of Mr. Bryan upon the action of the gold men at Chicago. Here are the extracts tha.t -will be spread broadcast by the committee: "As early as ISM, -when the democratic stato convention of Nebraska, controlled by candidates for the federal offices. Indorsed the president-'s financial policy, I stated that 1 would not follow the democratic party to a gold standard. "Directed by iny conscience and by my best Judgment, I shall use yiat vote to defend my rights, prolect my family and advance the welfare of society. Ko convention can rob me of my convictions, nor can any party organization drive me to conspire agolnst the prosperity and liberty of my country. "Men who honestly differ upon the paramount public questions cannot afford to bo harmonized by a national convention. Mr. Cleveland would not support a free silver candidate for the presidency, .and lie should not do so if he really believes that free coinage would ruin the country, because a man's duty to his country 1* higher than his duty to his party.

McKinlcy denied himself to all callers Wednesday morning and devoted two hours to the work of reading the proof of that part of his letter of acceptance which lias been put into type. Almost one- half of the letter was revised. Maj. McKinley is a very conservative, careful man,ajid he made many changes nnd corrections on the proof sheets, sometimes cutting a whole sentence r,d in other places adding a paragraph. The letter will be finished by the end> of the week if Maj. McKinley does not have too many interruptions. He does not expect to publish his letter before the end of the month, so he feels that there is no reason to be in haste about finishing it. Leopold Bracony, a distinguished French ^sculptor who.has been working on the clay model for r. marble btwt of Mn.j. McKinley at the hitter's residence here for ten days, finished his task Wednesday afternoon. M. Brucony :ias !u:ule a very striking and accurate •eproduction of Maj. McKinley's face nnd head.
