Mr. Bryan at Last-Turns His Face Toward Homei Makes Speeches at Lynn, Mass., and Providence, R. I.—Is Accompanied by Sewall. Lynn', Mass., Sept. 28. — William J. Bryan reached Lynn from Bath at 5:30 o'clock Monday, morning. ' Five hours of sleep had been his prepnr-ition for the day's hard work. lie reached Ne.wburyport at 4:45, where a reception committee Trom Lynn boarded his train, and at tlr; station here other local delegations met him end led the cheering for a knot of sleepy looking people, who awaited his coming. With Mr. Bryan wen-Arthur 6ewa.ll, who will accompany his running nmti: to Xew York; Joscpbu.s Daniels^ North Carolina; Fred W.Plaistefl, of Aug\ista,-ar.d S. S. nnd M. W. Sevall, nephews o'f the vice presidential candidate. The party wn<= taker, to. the Hr.iol Seymour, and while bmikfnst was being nrcparud Mr. Bryan tried to get a :itt.Ie more sleep. At 7:30 o'clock Mr. Bryan nnd Mr. Sewnll left the Hotel Seymour for Highland square, whore ihe presidential candidate spoke. Do- spite the early hour n groat crowd l.ail gathered there. Dryun'a Speech nt I.ynn, MIIKN. Mr. Bryan was introduced by John Drisuoll, and made a half hour's speech. Among other things he said: "Falllnff prices mean hard times and hard times have never been advocated in a platform By any party, although the ve T publican platform this year, without directly saylnpr so, promises to continue times hard and make them harder. Do you deny that proposition? I want you to iook at that plallorm. It declares a gold standard Is not desirable because the party pledges Itself to get rid oi it. If the double standard Is not more desirable than the cold standard, why does the republican party want to make any change? 11' the KOld standard Is good we ought to keep It but when the republican party attempts to jret rid of It, If admits it Is not as good as bimetallism.. But they promise you,, notwithstanding their desire to pet rid of the gold standard, that they will keep it until other nations help us to pet rid of it. Until then th'eyVsay we must malnta.ln the pold standard.-.No, I don't, think we will myself. If we'maintain the gold standard we must maintain those thlnss which are necessarily-'.,attached to It. ..We must maintain thJ(i\system ot issuing bonds to buy cold .whenever we want sold: When •we issue bonds.'and buy sold we create a demand for s'ol'd'--and raise Its purchasing power throughout, the world, but we arc contracting' ou'i'.'currcncy by piling It up in the vault's at'.'VV.ashing4on, when It ought to be out dolng'business amonff the people. Confidence VB. Money. There are- financiers who actually rejoiced at the Issufe. of bonds and said It would restore confidence. They oro trying to run business In this country with a larger and larger-percentage of confidence to the amount of, money on hand. And If they go on', the^people will-have.'all the coniidenco and no'money.. My.obaervatlon- has beennhat if'a. continence man comes Into a community, .the. man'who has', the least confidence h.ag the most money when the' fellow goes out. You say:' 'I am hungry!" They say; '-I'have'got a "remedy: Just .have ..confldenqc, .You have had a full meal and you will be just as well oft aa<S.' you had-.". You say you cannot get work. They say: 'Jugt have confidence; you have work and It will lie'all' rlsht.' You say: 'We cannot flnB a market for our shoes.'• 'Just have confidence that the people will buy 'and they wlll'buy.' ' • • '"There is only one place .where they think .the Confidence, game won't work. You go to one of these men who are all the time talking about confidence and ' ask to borrow money. Ho says: 'What security Iiave'you?'.y6'u aay: 'I will "give you nil the confidence-yqu-want.' ;Hc will 1 tell you he la not loaning on confidence this year.. Why Is It these financiers- are 30 anxious for you to have confidence In them when they do not have any confidence In you? They want security and tell you to got a good-name on your note or put up something that Is salable. The trouble is thlnss that used to be salable are not any more. Security that used to be good is not good security any more.. They are driving down the value of your security by- driving up the value of money. There is only one way to restore confidence and that is to give 1 confidence a basis to rest upon. [A voice: "Talk about Injunction."] "Government uy Injunction." "I have been talking about that -which is paramount In this campaign, and yet I realize there are other questions upon which people feel an Interest. 1 know they are In'teri-ited In the plank In our platform which declares against what is known as 'government by Injunction.' I know the people are Interested in that plank which demands arbitration because while. our plank is a national plank and Is.confined to arbitration : between tho employes enraged In interstate commerce .and their employers, yet tho indoraement ot the people of arbitration Is an important thing. It substitutes just and peaceful methods' of settlement In tho place of force. I believe that the principle o'f arbitration will become as well settled in this country While we younger 'men are still allvo as 1 the court of. justice is' .well settled to-day. If I have a difficulty with my neighbor I- do not. fight It 'out even if he wants to. I settle it in court.' I'want a place where wo can go and present our 'differences and let an impartial 1 arbitrator decide. The arbitration princi-i pie is nothing but an extensioivof the prln-. ciple ot courts of Justice. I recognize these things in our platform are material and "yet this contest is going'to turn on;, tho 'money' question because' we' have: reached a point when we.have got to declds,. whether wo' are going to le8'Islate l ;'Sorour' 1 own people'on the; financial .question, 'or' turn over the affairs of this country, tp' foreign nations and let them legislate,' for us," • ' ,-"• i i-. •'••:',. • '.'

No stops were made 'en rsute; and Providence was. reached Ut 10:01;''.'' • _ • A crowd of 15,000 people greeted William Jennings Bryan and listened to a short-speech from him. A platform -had been erected near the Soldiers' and Sailors' monument, on Exchange.place, and here ex-Gov. Davis Introduced {he .democratic candidate. He ivas'gj-.ected'with cheers and delivered -a. short speech, being followed by Mr. Scwall.'and George Fred Williams. TheiV'Sttiy was confined 1o an hour, and at 1.1 o'clock the party took the train for Xew London. • As' soon- as Mr. Davis had finished his words 'of'introduction, Mr. Bryan took off -his-'cb.it" aJid 'for a few seconds he ga/.ed earnestly at the surging mass of people b'e'fo'rt! him. After warning the immense crowd against pickpockets, Mr. Bry;;n'said,.in part: • An Houd.it IJollnr. "I do not come to preach to you a new rrospel. 'The; position w!«ch we take on the money Question Is an old position, not a new one.i We arc not flying In the face of natural law's as our opponents sometimes assert,--nor. firo we trylnp to overturn the principles.of political economy. Those who advocate bimetallism are the only ones In this campaign who are telling economid truths rind defending the natural laws of trade. . When I define an honest dollar as an honest .dollar, which does not change In Its purchasing power It may give to you a definition -which has been a sound definition among -all writers on political economy, When I give you that definition, I ani" simply'giving you a definition which 1ms. been 1 given to the world by that distinguished educator who lives in this_city and who Is an honor not only to the city and to this stale, but to the nation. ••President Andrews In a recent work, entitled 'Au'Honest Dollar' commences the first chapter with the words which I shall ouote: '.It' Is'always assumed or admitted that the 'Ideal sort of money would be money with . a unit, having a ?teadfast general purchasing power,' TVhen Prof. Andrews describes' the Ideal money as a money whose .unit. Is the steadfast . or general average of' purchasing power, he planted himself upon .the solid rock and all the financiers of this and other countries cannot prevail against the character of this •leflnltion. [Applause.] The poet has told ua that 'an honest man Is the noblest work , of God,' We may 'supplement this statement by 'adding that an honest dollar, wherever it Is found or made, will be the noblest work of'mar.. But, my friends, the gold dollaf*. which' Is praised to-day as the honest dollar.-. IB.nof-the.honost dollaivand those who love if most love,H,,because of its own dishonesty as a dollar. [Applause.] An honest dollar is one which preserves its general purchasing power trom day to day and from year to year. Then the dollar Milch rises in purchasing power is ju»t ; as dishonest as trie-dollar which falls*'in-purchasing-power." ' .
