Tho Danville (111.) Press-Democrat
prints tho following story of
Mr.'s Bryan's visit to Joe Cannon's
William Jennings Bryan last night
made his closing speech in his debt
paying campaign in tho Eighteenth
congressional district in behalf of
his old colleague and friend, William
L. Cundiff, of Danville, democratic
candidate for congress. This morn
ing at 6:10 ho departed for Chicago
enroute for one day's speech making
in. Minnesota, and two days in North
Coming into Vermilion county yes
terday afternoon, he addressed large
meetings in Hoopeston and Itoss
ville, at the latter place making an
address to a good audience outside
the hall, while Cundiff was speaking
inside. He arrived shortly after 6
p. m. in an automobile, accompanied
by Mr. Cundiff, C. V. McClenathan
and others who have been with him
for the past four days in the north
ern part of tho district. He was
taken to the Plaza hotel where he
lunched, and was then escorted to
the Coliseum. After the meeting he
was a guest over night at tho home
of Mr. and Mrs. Cundiff.
The Coliseum meeting was called
to order by James Dwyer, chairman
of the democratic county central
commitjtee, and Hon. J. B. Mann pre
sided, first introducing Mr. Cundiff,
who delivered a short address and
was cordially received by the au
dience. Upon the appearance of Mr.
Bryan, he was greeted with greal
applause. He was presented to the
audience by Mr. Mann In a short but
characteristically pointed and witty
speech, and there followed another
1lTVifafrYfi'f lrn r1nr?ni titTi IV1 4-Vi r
"great Nebraskan" shed his sunny
smile upon tho big audience. He
said in part:
"I know both of these candidates
personally, and I know what they
stand for. I have known Mr. Cun
diff for more than twenty years and
Mr. Cannon for almost twenty years.
Mr. Cundiff and I were young law
yers together in Nebraska, and ho
first presented my name for congress
twenty years ago ana has been one
of my most loyal supporters in all
"His chances of election are better
now than were mine when I was a
candidate for congress. There was a
change of 10,000 votes in my district
then, and it will only require a
change of 7,500 votes in this dis
trict to elect him.
"I was elected in the landslide
that followed the passage of the Mc
Klnley bill, and the revolt against
the republican leaders this year is
greater than then.
"Then there were no prominent
republicans voting against the bill or
talking against the law. Now there
is Insurgency from Maine to Cali
fornia. Tho author of the McKinley
bill was the star republican speaker
In the republican campaign of 1890,
but Mr. Aldrich has gone into retire
ment and Mr. Payne is not heard far
"Mr. Reed, Bpeaker of tho McKin
ley bill congress, was invited every
where to defend the law. What re
publican in a close district would in
vite Cannon to assist him now and
what republican who has a fight on
his hands, would risk coming Into
Cannon's district to speak for him?
"Wo have a standpat republican
in Nebraska running for the senate.
I will give Cannon's congressional
committee, of which Congressman
McKinley is chairman, $100 if it will
persuade Senator Burkett to speak
there. It would be worth it to Ne
braska. I would also give tho com-
Imittee $26 If it will publish, in one
week, a telegram from Barkett urg
ing the re-election of Cannon and ex
pressing "regret that he (Burkett)
can not speak in this district.
"In 1890 we did not elect any
democratic congressman in Maine.
This year we elected two, yet Mr!
Cannon was defeated in 1890. Is
there not a probability of his defeat
"I said I knew both candidates.
Both have sense enough to be con
gressmen. Both are honest, but a
man can be honestly right and hon
estly wrong. I believe Cundiff is
honestly right and Cannon is hon
estly wrong. Both aro courageous.
I know Cundiff is courageous be
cause he has dared to defend demo
cratic principles from his youth and
he has done so in communities where
it was to his personal and profes
sional disadvantage to do so.
"No one, will deny Cannon's cour
age. It has required courage to
dominate congress as he has done
and defy, the will oJJ tho majority,
and it has required courage to stand
still and see his party move on and
"But there is one characteristic,
and a very necessary characteristic,
in which Cundiff is better than Can
non his heart is right. His sym
pathies are with the masses.
"Tliere is ono great struggle,
world-wide in extent, and perpetual.
It is the struggle between the unor
ganized masses on the one side, who
demand justice and seek equal oppor
tunity, while on the other side is
organized and predatory wealth.
"I believe Mr. Cannon's sympa
thies are with the few, while Mr.
Cundiff's sympathies are honestly
with the many, Mr. Cundiff stands
for the democratic sentiment that is
growing in popularity. Mr. Cannon
stands for the aristocratic sentiment
which is diminishing yearly.
"You may think the republican
party has been in power the last
fourteen years, but you are mistaken.
The republicans have been in office
but the democrats have been in pow
er. The republicans have been draw
ing the salaries, but the democratic
party has molded public opinion, as
witness the sentiment in favor of
those democratic doctrines, popular
election of United States senators, in- '
come tax, regulation of the railroads,
labor legislation, publicity of cam
paign expenses, opposition to corpor
ate domination in politics, etc.
''These are the great reforms and
the democratic party has led In all
of them. Mr. Cundiff stands for all
of them. Mr. Cannon has not aided
them. You need Mr. Cundiff in
Washington to protect you against
the vicious aggression that is con
templated. You need him there to
vote against the trusts, the central
bank and other vicious legislation.
You need him there to vote for legis
lation that will not make it possible
for private monopoly to exist, ' and
to vote against the ship subsidy. You
want a man tliere that represents tho
people, all the people, and not ono
class or corporation."
There were parties .of people in
Danville from all of the surrounding
towns to hear Mr. Bryan, and tho
streets were crowded before and
after tho meeting.
