declaration for tine Chicago ticket Mr Bryan in his speecn referred to the exsenators support He supprt I said in part I am glad this man exSenator Davis living in the east is not afraid to I trust the executive office In the hands of a man who has always lived in the wet Cheers I a glad that this man of mature years is not afraid ol those who have not reached that age in life I am glad that one of the richest men in your state is not afraid to trust the government in the hands of the people Cheers His position I 1 PROTECTS HIM FROM ATTACKS I which are made against me He has l been a senator for twelve years therefore our opponents cannot call him an ignoramus or a novice in legislation I Oheer His property interests protect him from being called an anarchist i I think they call us anarchists who have less property Laughter and i cheers I am glad to find a man who has employed a large number of men I who does not try to control their votes I Greai cheers for Davis and Bryan My friends there are two kinds of I employers in this country those who i pay wages and receive work in return and are satisfied and then there are I those who expect that when they hire a man to work for them he will mil I his vote a well as muscle to his employer Cheers I want ion tihss occasion I to call ATTENTION TO THE DIFFERENCE I between a man like exSenator Davis who thinks his men have sense enough to know how they ought to vote a well as a right to vote for whom they please I want you to recognize between that man a an employer and the others who are trying 0 coerce their employees

point touched by the B O in the Alleghenies j Although the hour he arrived here was so lae Mr Bryan decided not to disappoint the large number of people who had been waiting for him so long in a

The first stop was at the Junction where the frs candidate shook hands with a few people ple When the train reached Harpers Ferry it was an hour late The train had been delayed by the effects of a hd terrific huricane which swept over this section last night Mr Bryan addressed about 1000 people from a stand erected > on an embankment near the I station He said staton glad to talk in a county which bears the name of the first great I teacher of Democratic principles in the United States cheers and the Democratic party this year in its platform I has declared anew for those principles which have been Democratic from the beginning and which must be Democratic I t the end s long a Democracy means the rule of the people Cheers My friendS Democracy has a meaning I and that meaning is well understood I by those who LOVE DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES and in this campaign we find men who claim to be Democrats trying to fasten upon this country a system by which the banks shall issue money when Thomas Jefferson declared that banks of issue were more dangerous than I standing armies Applause One reason why we know that we are standing i i in the position that Jefferson occupied I is that he said that the men who I I wanted to turn over the business of issuing paper money to the banks called him a maniac because he opposed it and the very men who called him a maniac called u for advocating what he advocated then lunatics Applause I My friends Jefferson had confidence I in the capacity of the people for slfI governmentaye a hundred years ago I when government was an experiment he had faith enough to trust them and a hundred years of experiment has justified his confidence And yet today we have t meet enemies who are not willing that the people themselves shall run this government but think It is to turn its affairs i necessary tur afar over to a syndicate to manage for the benefit of the syndicate without the consent of the American people Applause My friends we are advocating policy the restoration of that financial policyWHICH plcyVRIC WAS GOOD ENOUGH for this country during a the early days of the republic financial policy which had the support of all the headIng ing Democrats who hived before 1873 a financial policy which was changed by the representatives of ths people in darkness and without discussion and as many believe by fraud actually practiced upon the people Cheers My friends some of the financiers down east doubt the ability of the pe ple to attend to their own business but when I find a financier who distrusts the American people I generally find 3 financier who visits Europe oftener than he visits the country west of New York Cheers My friends I want you to remember that in this campaign those who advocate the free coinage of silver are the only ones who have a system of finance that they are willing to lay before the American people We are not saying that the silver dollar be changed nor that the gold dollar be changed but that the American people SHALL HA V AN OPTION to have both gold dollars ad silver dollars to do business with Applause and a voice How about the 53 cent dollar Some ask How about the 53cent

laughter and applause but I < my friends they did not call the silver cal dollar a 53cent dollar when siver was I treated like geld Prior to 1873 the silver dollar was a dollar and threeI cent dollar measured by gold They told us that they wanted to get rid of the silver dollar because i was too good and now they do not want to I bring it back because it is not good enough Cheers I They told us that they wanted to demonetize i because it went abroad and now they are afraid to remonetize I it for fear it will come back Applause When our mints wee i pen to the free coinage of gold and silver i i on equal terms we did not have any trouble about silver being a cheap dollar and when we open our mints again to silver on an equal footing with gold there will be nobody to complain of 53cent dollars Because a silver dollar I will be worth as much as a gold i dollar here and anywhere in the world Cheers I 11 Bryan on concluding his address returned immediately to the station accompanied by

campaign have been so wildly demonstrative as that at Martinsburg today The candidate I arrived just as Jeff Chandler of California i fornia was concluding a free coinage j speech He was introduced by Senator Faulkner and in the course of his remarks said In a platform many questions are covered but the election always turns I upon some paramount issue fnd in I this campaign we have declared that I the money question i the paramount issue I there are other things in which you believe the settlement of i the other things can be postponed until after we have MET AND PASSED THE CRISIS presented by the advocates of the gold I standard Our opponents not we are responsible for the fact that in this campaign we are engaged in a battle royal between the money power and the common people These fontesta I j are always brought about by the aggression 1 of those who seek to use the government as a means of private I j gain All the great questions which j I have from time tc time been forced upon the public have been forced not by the many but by the few and the I great struggles which have occupied the thought and effort of the peoples of the world have been the struggles i made by tne masses in selfdefense I and so in this campaign the hosts are j being marshalled to resist the aggressions of the gold standard I I were j Ito tell you that a foreign army was coming to attack uS or that a foreign navy was anchored at our gates I i could expect every one of you to join in fan effort to protect your country from invasion I announce to you that a 1 foreign financial policy has wot only INVADED OUR COUNTRY I but i has gained a foothold here and 1ut a great national party the Republican f geIt party has declared that that foreign I policy shall remain here until foreigners themselves shall consent to Its retirement r tirement Applause The gold standard I Idea is an imported idea applause and my friends care not whether you attempt to restrain it by a high tariff or a low tariff I shall not b content until it shall be driven back and find no more a home in our midst Ap Continued on Page 6J TWENTY TOWiiS WREGKEl At Least Forty and Probably Fifty People Killed in
