Addresses .of President Black and Vice President Stevenson, the Temporary Chairman. St. Louis,'Oct. 3.—Beautiful autumn ocratic Clubs which assembled in the Auditorium building Saturday morning. Tbe spacious structure was profusely decorated with fluffs, banners and bunting, interspersed with pictures of tiie men celebrated in the history of democracy. A notable exceptibn ic the gallery of" portraits was the absence of President Cleveland's \vcll-hcown lithograph. Oh account of delayed trains nnd late arrivals there was no meeting: of the Executive committee Friday night. Early Saturday morning those members of the executive committee who are in attendance at the convention met informally iindratiHcd-the-programmeof the proceedings as prepared by Secretary McKcan. I'roinlnent Visitor*. Among' the prominent visitors nnd delegates to the convention are Vice President Stevenson, ex-Gov. Black, ot Pennsylvania; Hon. BCD ton JlcMillin, of Tennessee; Congressman Williain Sulzer, of New York;' M. J. Hervun, btatc organizer of democratic clubs in Maryland; Judg-e Hughes, of Pennsylvania; W. Lambert, o£ Newark, N. J-Guv. Clark and Gov.-elect Jones, of Ai- kansts; Francis G. Newlands.of Nevada (chairman of the national silver party convention); Gov. Stoue, of'Missouri; George P. Kemney, national organizer of silver party, Washington, J>. C.; ex- Senator Money, of Mississippi; George Vt: Etio, of El Paso, Tex, Mr. Itae has been sergcani-at-i'.rms r.f the association for the last eight years. ' The delegates were slow in assembling at the Andilffrium and at 11 o'clock, the hour when the'Convention should have been called to order, there, were not over 300 delegates present. • The Missouri and Illinois delegations were honored by tha presence of many ladies. At 11:20 o'clock the Franklin county (0.) club marched in with the handsomest banner of the convention and received three cheers. At 11:25 Vice President • Stevenson entered the hall leaning on the arm of ex-Gov. Black, of Pennsylvania. Mr. Stevenson limped perceptibly and showed the effects of injuries received at the collapse of the platform at Burlington, Ia. At 11:-15, o'clock Secretary McKcan called the convention to order and the' Jefferson Glee club, accompanied by the band,rcndered the national anthem, "America;'* I'rofttiloat Blftck'fl. Address. President Black was greeted with a round, of- applause and spoke as-follows: ',;• . • ,. President. Black, In calling the convention to order, said that the cause they were supporting was that of no section arid no class, but of the whole people. There was was but one'class, ho declared, who were not represented-In the convention, and that was tho comparatively few who/epresent- ed the syndicates and trusts and other combines. "Mr. Bryan," sn!d tho speaker, "stands for the republic, for the continued rule of the people, for the Independence of our •people, for the right of man to live and to labor for himself, for his children. TV'e, therefore, propose to stand shoulder' to shoulder, with all men who will stand with us, and. never was welcome more' heartfelt than, that which wo extend to our'silver brethren, and our populist brethren, who have ' magnanimously Imperiled many'things most dear to them that they might come to us to save our common country and rescue humanity Itself from the- fate which o-jr powerful opponents' have prepared for It. With the election of Bryan and a people's congress, we can look, forward to the dawn of a now century under brighter auspice's and the approach Of another folden age of peace, plenty and prosperity, like that which followed the election of Jeflcrso!"-" The speaker said there was no need to be .alarmed over the declarations In the Chicago platform. He found In them nothing new. Every principle declared, wag as old as the Declaration of Independence and BOino much older. "It is a liappy circumstance in thlsJ crisis " continued tho speaker, "that tho working men In our country know their rights • and daro maintain them. W,hon they unite with tho farmers on a common cause the success o£ tho. cause Is assured, and all the millions which Hanna's syndicate's can pour out would avail nothing as a counter-balance In the light." Mr Black then defended Mr. Bryan, declaring that ho was Interested In no trusts and was the servant of none; ha was just n plain man of .brains, and of character, of uncompromising conviction and Invincible integrity. No blemish, he said,, could bo found upon his record, and the onlv charge preferred affalnst him was SSuth and eloquence, which ho would an : Bwor for after he,was elected to the pros- nospeaker closed by asking the. organ-/ motion to see to It that eyery vote Bhall.. bo polled, "in spite of money and intlml r , datum " and ho expressed tho hope .that the Australian, ballot would shield'the Elector from tyrannical espionage, and that the many thousands whoso voices are for H«nna but whose hearts are for Bryan, will avail themselves of its security ...toJ. cast their ballots for their country and. ior ; themselves. _ . . . ; , .• President Black's address was. frequently interrupted by applause by; those in proximity, to the platform,,, but the speaker's..voice wus unable to, penetrate the'distance to.the outwurd Bents and cries of "louder" u-ere-crn- etantly''heard.; At-the..conclusion of Black's, speech .Vice Pro^clirnr Steves-' pon .was introduced:, who "spoke in.patt ' AddrcHl of Vice President Stovenion. In opening his remarks the Mce president expressed his appreciation of the houor of being selected to preside as temporary chairman and declared the gratitude of democrats everywhere was Oue to the democratic clubs for the sreat work they had done and would do. The democratic party for 32 years prior to the election of Mr. Cleveland had not at one single .moment controlled the presldtncy and both houses of congress, and the republican party, he declared, wart responsible for'the long train of llnancW disaster, inonopolles and trusts. During that poriod the "monetary policy of tho ruiinaen: ci our government was abandoned and silver demonetized." The evils resulting- from this act hud never been nnd would never bo ' adequately told. Vice President Stevenson then touched nn the statement of the republicans that (ho tariff..was the Teal. Issue and said the election of the-republican ticket meant the rcenactment of the McKinley tariff law, tho most unjust, the most odious law known to {i_ny period of the history of t he- country. The repeal of the McMnlcy Jaw and the enactment of tho Wilson bill ;iflcr a desperate struggle, he dcclaied. was "literally a struggle ot the people against the monopoly and greed fostcra-' ,.nd made powerful by more than 30 yfars of republican, leg-islatlor.." Tiio Ovornhiulowliip Ili.iUf, The fln.ancliir quoslifin, however, over- shadow'cici all other issues in tho prcMnnt contest, and his parly allegiance and determination to vole for Bryan and Sewall was the outgrowth of a deep ,,-onvlctlon that sold and silver lint! equal 7-iX-ORnition in the constitution of the United States; Lluu thi> prosperity of the past was a:- •rlbutablo to their joint issue on an equal basis, and that the'evil days fallen i!',»on us were in no small measure the result of the demonetization of silver. He <wc- •jrcasod. regret at the withdraw;); of prominent democrats from tap party. a.:ul r,a:fl chat as the "parting ol tho ways" hud •been reached it was well to inquire whether "their part or ours Is the true or.i-." KecriNiut tn IJcmocriitlc Faith. "Art- we recreant to democratic faith nnd traditions In standlnpr by thi- historic organization, or they, in adding directly or indirectly in the triumph of its great an- 'uiRunlstV By the constitution of "Jie United States congress Is vested with the :jolc power 'to coin money, rcculatu the vnlue thurof nr.d of foreign coi.'.s and to .'lx the standard of weights and measures, 1 and it Is-further provided that 'no sUtu shall coin money or malce anything but . ,'.;old and sliver coin a tender in payment uf debts.' Tl;e system of bln:i Lalllsm is here established. Gold and silver here ilud equal recognition. As democrats wo believe in honest money—the money of the constitution. Have wo in lhc> af'.^oca.-'y of bimetallism departed from democratic teachings, from the democratic faith on this question?" .Mr. Stevenson then wont on to show that the platform of the democratic national convention of 1859 declared for honest money—"consisting of gold nnd silver and paper .convertible into coin on demand," and in "1SS4 Mr. Cleveland' was nominated and subsequently elected upon tho declaration: "We believe in honest money, the gold and silver coinage of'the constitution and 'the circulating medl-im convertible Into sueh money without loss." In JS8S the platform of the last.preceding convention, was unanimously rrafllrir.jd, nnd In 183? the platform declared for""the use of'hoth'co'd. aM-sllver as'a standard of money,of the country." "This declaration,"-continued Mr. Stevenson, "met my earnest approval then as it does now. Can it bo that, those of us who four years later still hold to 'the use; of both metals as standard'money of tho country have abandoned tHu'faith and are no'longer worthy to bo called'.democrats? -Js.it too mucli to ' claim that In giving our support" to the nominees of the Chicago convention we aro 'keeping, the faith?' The ' charge of recreancy does not lie at our door." Republican Party's Position on tno l»xao. The position' of the republican r.arty, past and present, on. the money question, was reviewed. 'The llnar.cial plank of tho platform ndppto.1 at St. Louis was quoted and the vice president then went on to say: "In what party platform In.any history of. our country can there be found so humiliating a proposition? Did the republican leaders who formulated that declaration really expect England, 'the leading commercial nation, of the world,' to consent to an International agreement looking t.o the rec-stabllshiijent of bimetallism in the two great English-speaking nations? Or was tills- proposition simply to placate and keep In line until after tho election such members as still believe the Interests of the.people could be best subserved by the USQ of the two precious metals as standard money? I repeat the Inquiry of our candidate for the presidency: 'If the gold standard is tho best-if it is'desirable- why even lliis thought of a change? • \Vhv even tho suggestion of an international agreement? Why hu,mble ourselves at the feet of England that she may consent to something that will not redound to our benefit--as a people? This clause.of the republican platform Is a confession of weakness. .Either the single gold standard is the beet 1'or our country or it is not.' In. conclusion Mr. Stevenson said: "I am llrmly persuaded that in all the present contest the Interests of all the people are bound up In the success of the democratic oar'v whoso creed- upon the pending, vital'Issue was the living faith of the founders of our government. Now, as in the struggles of the past, Its appeal Is to the judgment, the patriotism, xho sense- of Justice of.tho American people. Its candidate for the presidency is the able and eloquent statesman whose words have, cheered the despondent, given hope and in-, spiratlon .to his countrymen, and whoso inn.UBurP.tion' will be the earnest of.bet- 'ter days to tho republic." • . - -President Stevenson's address was warmly received, and although its de- .livery occupied nearly 1% hours the closest attention was given to it. ;. Gov; Stone's Welcome. "f : At'-tlie conclusion of Vice President •-Stevenson's address;. Gov. Stone 'marched, down' the aisle to the.sp.eak- ers"i>lntform leaning on the.nrru o£ e:x> Gov Fishbaelc, of Arkansas. The-convention thre\y their hata in. the air "v/hile the band played "Dixie." Gov.
