When William J. Bryan came to New
Haven in 1800 and tried to speak on
the green he was hissed by hundreds
and tho Yale boys made it impossible
for him tojlnish his speech.
If any republican had then suggest

Tired but cheery, Mr. Bryan was
human and humorous throughout his
too short visit to Hartford yesterday,

ly delightful for all those who met
him. Even in the printed word, where
the sole charm is in what he said, and
not in the genial skill with which he
said 4t, we think that those who peruse
his Garde hotel speech will find their
full reward. Mr. Bryan has ripened
wonderfully; and the attitude of an ob
servant citizen of the world, with un
derlying political tendencies, which he
took here, has become wholly natural
to him, and is wholly charming in any

THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH
Connecticut political conditions are
not the same this morning they were
yesterday morning. Something of very
serious import with far-reaching con
sequences in it has occurred in Con
necticut. An nonest governor, thwart
ed and mocked In his Unselfish efforts
for the people's good, has done what
Hughes of New York said he would do
in like case; he has turned, directly and
fearlessly, to the people. Such a
speech as Rollin S. Woodruff made at
New Haven last nicht is an absolutely
new thing in the state's experience,
but when was there ever before such
occasion and provocation for it? The
governor was far too much in earnest
List night to smooth and soften his
words; they have a sledgehammer
blnntness and impact".
He tells the people of Connecticut
plainly that the present general as
sembly with, as he believes, a major
ity of honest, well-meaning, men in it
-is controlled by the "leaders" and
the lobby and the forces of graft and
private profit in the background, issu
ing orders to both. He tells them that
the session so far has been a juggling
with legislation. He tells them that
ho despairs of the enactment at tills
time of a single law in their interest.
"What a deplorable spectacle is pre
sented to our view," he exclaims, "of
the lawmaking power of this common
wealth paralyzed by the grip of lob-
