Sli Presidential Candidate Addresses a
large. Gathering of People at Albany
He Discourses Upon the Flnanetal If
nes Evils of a Gold Standard Pointed
Oat from n Silver Standpoint-
Mr. Bryan In the Knit.
Albany, N. Y., Aug. 27. The boo-
ond day ot William J. Bryan's trip
Westward from tho seclusion of Rod
Book was an eventful one, crowded
with n variety of incidents of travol,
Including a picturesque reception at a
inmmer hotel, a stirring speech to a
crowd oi worklngmen at tho town of
Kingston, and culminating in a great
mooting at Albany, whero the candi
date spoke to a crowd estimated at
from 7,000 to 10,000 people, packed in
the city hall squure, under the shadow
of the state house.
Before this demonstration, Mr. and
Mrs. Bryan sat down to u dinner with
Senator Iilll and prominent Albany
Democrats at the Senator's magnifi
cent home, "Wolfert's Roost," whlthor
they were driven directly from tho
depot, where a strong lunged crowd
camo near to mobbing them on tholr
Thoso who met tho Democratic can
didate and his wife at Air. Hill's much
discussed dinner were: Supromo
Court Judge Q. Cady Ilerrlck and
wife; Louis W. Pratt, tho collector of
customs, and- wife; Norton Chase,
chairman of the city Democratic com
mittee, which, with other local organ
izations, had the meeting in charge.
For nearly three hours Mr. Bryan
was the guest of tho Now York Sena
tor, and although every participant in
the dinner averred that it was a
purely social affair, their descriptions
were taken with a grain of Bait, it
being the general impression that an
andorstandiug was reached which
will insuro to Mr. Bryan tho support
of the party organization in this
The crowd began to gather in the
eity hall squaro two hours before the
meotlng, and when Mr. Bryan faced
them the people were packed in solid
masses over Beveral acres of pavement
and sod, with adventurous men
perched like bouquets in tho branches
of trees and climbing telegraph and
lamp posts. Mr. Bryan said in part:
"In a campaign, thero is always
Some overshadowing issue; there is in
a campaign always one great para
mount question which, more than any
other, will determine tho allegiance
of thoso who support the ticket; and
In this campaign we appeal with con
fidence to those peoplo who are op
posed to t, longer continuation of the
gold standard policy in the United
tates. Our opponents have at last
taken a definite position upon the
money question. The Republican
?latform adopted at St. Louis declares
hat the gold standard must be main
tained in this nation until other na
tions shall consent to its abandon
ment. We believe that declaration
whloh commits us to a gold standard
until other nations come to our relief
is equivalent to a declaration in favor
of a permanent continuation of the
f-old standard, because wo do not be
love that other nations will take pity
upon us before we take pity upon our
own people.
"Can you think of all tho wars of
tho past; can you remember that from
the time that Cain killed Abel until
Sow history has been little more than

gll those wars and can you add in one

Wars have caused, and then can you
think of tho pestilences which have
Visited tho earth and tho misery that
they havo brought, and then can you
think of the famines that have afflict
ed mankind from time to time; can
you add into one great sum all the
misery caused by these three dread
destroyers of the human race; and
then think that tho consummation of
the conspiracy of those who stand be
hind the gold standard would bring
more of misery than all of these?
"Money can bo too good. It can bo

ever you mako money dearer, when
you increase its purchasing power,
you have simply driven down the

erty more valuable, how can they ap
peal to thoso who own property and

again, that without the aid of tho
money-owning classes tho gold stand

any nation under tho sun. I assert

Returning to his native country at his

in Irish laces and linens, which ho
brought to this city. In 1825 ho started
a modest store here and with his wlfo

his confirmation was prevented by an
old law which excludes from the office
those interested in the importation of

vote his profits to charity during hla
