Ingnem to accept In full return the ponce ,
protection nnd opportunity which It Impartially -
partially beslows.
Not moro surely do the rulM of honesty
nnd good fnlth fix the standard of Indi
vidual character In n community than do
thcso same rules determine- charneter
nnd standing of a nation In the world of
civilization. Neither the slitter of Its
power , nor the tinsel of Its commercial
prosperity , nor the gaudy show of Its pee
ple's wealth fin conceal tin cankcrtni' rust
of national dishonesty ami cover the mean
ness of national bnd faith. A constant
stream of thoughtful. ediicnU-d men should
come from our universities nnd colleges
teaching national honor nnd IntrRrlty nnd
teaching that n belief In the npcesHliy of na
tional obedience to the lawn of God Is not
born of supcrstltlor.
I do not forget iho practical necessity of
political parties , nor ilo I deny their d slr-
ability. I recognize wholesome differences
nf opinion touching legitimate govern
mental policies nnd would by no means
control or limit the utmost freedom In
their discussion. I have only attempted to
miRgcsl the Important patriotic service
which our InsMtutloim of higher education
and their graduates nre fitted to render to
our people In the enforcement of these
Immutable truths nnd fundamental prin
ciples which nto rehitnl to our national
condition , but should never be dragged Into
the field of political strlfo nor Impnssed
Into thn service of partisan contention.
When the excitement of party warfare
presses dangerously near our national safe
guards I would have thn Intelligent con
servatism of our universities nnd colleges
warn thn contestants In Impressive tones
ngalnst the perils of a breach Impossible to
When popular discontent nnd passion are
stimulated bv the nrtH of designing parti
sans to n pitch perilously to cla. s
haired or iwrilnnnt anger I would have our
universities and colleges cotind the alarm
In the name of American brotherhood and
fraternal dtpcndenee
When the -iltempt Is made to delude the
people Into the belief that their suffrages
can change the operation of natural laws
1 would have our universities nnd colleges
proclaim that Ihone laws are Incxoiablc and
far removed from political control.
When sclll- Interest seeks undue private
benellt through governmental aid and pub
lic place1 * are claimed IIB reward of party
service I would have our universities nnd
colleites persuade the peonli ; to a rclln-
qulHhment nf the demand for party spoils
and exhort them to a disinterested and
patriotic love of their government for Its
own sake and because In Its true adjust
ment nnd unperverted operation It secures
to every citizen his Just sham of the safety
nnd prosperity It holds In store for nil ,
Whnn a dc.disn Is apparent to lure the
cople ! from their honest thoughts and to
.illnd their eyes to the sad plight of national
dishonor and bad faith I would have Prince
ton university , pann-tllcd In her patriotic
traditions nnd glorious memories , and
joined hy all the other unlverHilos nnd
colleges of our land , cry out against the
Infliction of thin treacherous and fatal
wound. I would have the Influence of
these Institutions on the side of religion
and morality. I would Imvo thofo they
send out among the people not ashamed to
acknowledge nod and to proclaim Ills Inter
position In the affairs of men , enjoining
such obedience to Ills laws as makes mani
fest the p.uh of national perpetuity and
prosperity . . .
I hasten to concede the peed already ac
complished by our educated men In purify
ing nnd steadying political sentiment , but
I hope I may be allowed to Intimate my
belief thnt their work In these directions
would bo easier nnd more useful If It were
less spasmodic nnd occasional. The dlspo-
nltlon of our people Is such that while they
may bo Inclined to distrust those who only
nn rnrp ocermloim come among them from
an excluslveness savoiliu ; of assumed su
periority , they readily listen to those who
exhibit n real followsiili ) and a friendly and
habitual Interest lit nil that concerns the
common welfare. Such a condition of Inti
macy would. I believe , not only Improve
< ho general political atmo'phero , but would
vastly Increase the Inllucncu of our uni
versities nnd colleges In their efforts to
prevent popular delusions or coirect them
before they reach an acute and dangerous
P1 am certain , therefore , that n more con-
ntnitt nnd active participation In
affairs on the part of our men of education
would bo of the greatest possible value to
our country. It Is e.\ceedlngly unfortunate
thnt politics nhould be regarded In any
quarter 113 an unclean thing , to ho nvoldrd
by these claiming to be cdiicnted or re-
jmcctablo , It would bo Btninge Indeed If
anything retried to thn administration of
our government or the welfare of our na
tion should be essentially deanidlng. I be
lieve It Is not n Hupor.itltloim nonUmcnt
that IcadH to the conviction that ( Sod has
watched over our national llfo from Us
beginning. Who will uny. that the things
worthy of Ciod'H regard und fostering care
nro unworthy of the touch of the wisest
nnd best of men ? I would Jinyo lliosii > (
out Inniir - unlveTBltleTt colleges not
only lite counsellors of their fellow country ,
men , but the tribunes of the people-fully
appreclatliiK every condition that presses
upon their dally life , sympathetic In every
tintownrd situation , qulclc and rarneot In
every effort to advance their happiness and
welfare , nnd prompt and ntunly In the
defense of all their rights.
I have but Imperfectly expressed the
thoughts to which I have not bivit able
to deny utterance on nn occasion so full
of glad significance , and HO pervaded by
the ntinosphero of patriotic nnplratlon.
Horn of these Riirroundlni : , thu hopes

Tniltlft. IIAUTB. Ind. , Oct. 22. The Ih'dt-
ana committee evidently does not Intend to
allow William J. Uryan to keep very far
behind his record as n Bpcechmnkcr on this
rip through Hooalerdom. Nineteen speeches
vero made In the. twrnty-four hours ending
at midnight last nl < ? ht , nnd today Hcventeen
wcro on iho Itinerary.
The Ili-rtt speech of the morning was at
Jecntur shortly after 8 o'clock. Several
housnnd people listened to Mr. Hryan for
more than a quarter of on hour , and the
icoplo who heard him did not hesitate to
; lvo bo'alerous approval or his utterances.
The crowd was made up for the most part
of farmers , and Mr. Bryan's speech was one
for farmers. Ho told them that farmers
if no country had ever endorsed the gold
Etnndard , and called attention to the meet-
ng of agriculturists some time ago In lluda-
Pcst , where bimetallism wns endorsed and
greetings were rent to blmetalllsts of Amcr-
ca. He- quoted from the address of Prince
Illsmarck to the farmers n jcar ago. In
which he said the farmers must stand to
gether nnd protect themselves from the
Ironcs of oocloty who produce nothing but
Market was not down on the bills for a
speech , but a stop was made there and Mr.
llryan spoke for five minutes. Ki ? was
taken from the ear to n stand at Ilunllngton
nnd spoke to a crowd which numbered
up Into the thousands , and which wns evi
dently moro to his way of thinking than
some of the crowda of yesterday.
The public square In front of the court
house at Ilochcster was well filled with
crowded humanity when Mr. Hrynn arrived
there. It wns a frco silver crowd , nnd the
people who were yellow badges looked
Mr. Hrynn spoke at a barbecue at Peru ,
where ho quoted Prof. Laughlln's deilnltlnn :
"An honest dollar would bo a dollar whoso
nverago put chasing power would bo the
same yesterday , today nnd forever. " Prof
Laughlln also declared In his hook on bi
metallism that If Justlco Is dcfclrcd In long
tlmo contracts , you cannot expect exact Ju '
lice from cither Iho gold ntftiulard or from
Ulmotalllsm , and Mr. Bryan said : "Ho I *
rluhL "i\'o. do , not reach oxaot hoiioaty In
Iho dollar. "
At Delphi , Mr. Bryan refuted the charge
ot ex-President Harrison , fhat when he
spoke of those who had been saving the coun
try for thirty years nt so much per save , lie
alluded to the old veterans.
Frankfort nnd Lafnyotto turned out large
crowds to hear the silver doctrine. At
Drawfordsvllle Mr. Bryan made a sensation
by replying , fiom n platform erected within
a few yards of the homo of General Low
Wallace , to the general's speech made some
tlmo ago. In which he alluded to Bryan as
an anarchist , lie said : "There Is nothing
In thu platform upon which I stand that
Justifies the chars ? No man Is afraid
If I nm elected president I will not enforce
the la\v. < of this nation There Is no man
living beneath our ling who Is a better friend
or firmer believer In our form of govern
ment than I am. It Is true that I am a
young man , but , my friends , I want to as
sert here with all the emphasis that I can
command that 1 am' ' as good a friend of our
government aye I will say that I am n
better friend of American Institutions than
any man who declares that foreign credi
tors must run our country. Standing upon
a pltlform. which declares In favor of nn
American dollcr for the American pcopje , I
put my patriotism ngalnst the patriotism
of ( itncral Lew Wallace , or. against the
patriotism of any other man on earth who
endorses the republican platform. "
A short stop of ten minutes was made
at Ladoga and at Rlclulale and the nominee
appeared on the back platform and excused
hlnifiolf from making a speech by saying
that thn nominee for congress. Mr. Rldpath ,
hiid spoken during the day and consequently
It was not necc'anry for him to sceak.
At Greencantlo , the next stop , Mr. Bryan
was received by a crowd of several thou
sand people. The enthusiasm was great ,
especially when he mentioned the name ol
the historian and nominee for congress ,
Mr. Rldpath. At Brazil there was the uaunl
largo cfov/d nnd It was simply a repeti
tion of what had taken place during tin.
The enthusiastic meeting of the evening
In Terre Haute was a fitting close for tin
enthusiastic day. The reception hero was
ono of the greatest. If not the greatest , o
the day , and the ovation given the candidate
wan Haltering In the extreme. He was me
at the depot by members of the Jackson
club , nnd when he received his carriage
thnt organisation acted ns a guard of hone
In the procession which followed. Mr. Dryan
addressed two meetings tonight In Terra
Haqlc. The first wus from a platform erectei
from the entrance to the court house , am
huro thn larger crowd of the evening wa
assembled. It applauded and cheered a
every opportunity. Thu speech was abou
the sumo OK given at other places. At the
second meeting , hack of the Tcrro lUutu
hotel , the candidate spoke to another larg
crowd. Hero Mr. Bryan was presented will

A mo lean Hallway union man brought fort ;
great applause.

CANTON , 0. , Oct. 22. Major MoKlnley
had atrnwbcrrlcs and cream with his
speeches today. The berries came from the
second crop In Belmonl , O. , nnd the visi
tors brought plenty of with them.
Many visitors came from points where Mr.
Bryan spoke on his recent dash through the
stale. It was n day of surprlics. Only two
delegations were expected , but by nightfall
Elx ot the largest organized bodies which
Imvo yet come to Canton had cnllcd nt the
McKlnleys , besides thousands of other
people. The streets were crowded as on the
big Saturday Jubilees. The escort commit
tees had not provided for such nn outpouring
of people , but the crowds were well ordered.
Women marched In line In great numbers.
Major McKlnley appropriately termed this
"Ohio day , " as ho could well do , from the
outpouring of Bucko > o people , although
Indiana , West Virginia nnd Pennsylvania
were hcio In organized bodies-or merged
Intn Knim > nf the blc Ohio delegations.
Vlth one party were hundreds of students
rom H.ildwln university and "Wallace cot-
ego of Iterea , who inndo the welkin ring
vllh yells. Thcso people wore from the ox-
rcme northern part of the stall. Thousands
of peoplu came from the dlstaiu river coun-
les of the stnto In company with hundreds
of their West Virginia friends across the
river. Valparaiso , Fort Wayne , Plymouth
and a dozen other northern Indiana towns
swelled the crowds In the evening with a
lotMler yell. Major McKlnley gave greeting
o the city council and olliclals of New
Irlghton , Pa. , In his library.
There was glorious Indian summer's
brightest weather In Canton this morning.
A largo delegation of fanners called at Me-
Clnley's home. They came from Creston ,
3. Major McKlnley responded to Mr. A. I.
Uchnrds. who upolio on behalf of the dele
gation , as follows :
Ladles nnd Oentlemen and My Fellow
Citizens : I esteem this call from my old
constituents nnd my utlghborM nnd fellow
cltlx-ens as n very great compliment and
lionor-not to mo personally , but to the
principles nnd policies for whleli the re-
DUhllcan jRirty Hlnnds this year. I remem-
l > cr when the republicans of Prrston und
Wnync county were nniotiR tne nust earnest
nnd cnthusl.istlc of my old congressional
district , and I see you have not lost your
earnestness nnd enthusiasm for the nreat
doctrines of the republican parly. We
cannot by legislation In this country make
values ; \\o cannot by tiny legerdemain of
finance make something out of nothing.
The only way to get wealth Is by labor ,
nnd anybody who teaches any other doc
trine Is n false tuichor nnd not the friend
of Anivrlcan citizenship or of our Ameri
can homes. ( Great npphiuse. )
Tljere Is no such thing nn creating wealth
by the mere breath of congress. Congress
can do a great many things , but It cannot
make you rich or the country rich by de
basing the money of thn country , nnd It
cannot make the country rich by giving
us dollar : ) thnt arc only worth H cents
each nml stamping thorn dollars. ( Great
laughter nnd npplause. ) Now , congress
can help the country , but It must bo by
wise legislation , caring for the products ,
the Inbor , the farms , nnd tne manufactures
of our own people , by jirotecllng- them
ngalnst the products of people living In
other lands. If you me n farmer , what
you want first la good crops. Legislation
cannot help you to them. You know In
order to get gopd .crops you have to sow ,
and then you * nilUit' have" God's nunnlilnn
and riiln , and u cheap dollar will never
help j'our .cropa any..Tremendous np-
pluuHo. ) You have to toll Just as hard for
iv KOOI | MX u poor crop.
Now , after you have n good crop , then
you want n good market. You have that
In the United States , If you nre let alone ,
but If somebody's product can come In
here nnd displace yours , then your market
Is not so good. Isn't that right ? ( Ixnid
shouts of "You are right , yes. " ) This Is
nil there Is of thnt question. It U n ques
tion on which our 70,000,003 of freemen
should , by their ballots , decree that the
legislation of our country shall protect nnd
defend American Interests and promote
American development against the outside
world. ( Applause. )
Now , when you have n peed market nnd
Mfll your wheat or corn you want to bo
paid In good money , don't you ? ( Cries of
"Sure" nnd "You bet. " ) you oldt r men
around me will remember the period when
you sold your wheat nnd were paid In
state bank money , which was good on the
day you received It , but Just IIH likely ns
not the next day you dlsruvcrcd that this
value had depreciated.
A Voice "Was not worth anything. "
And It wna not worth anything , my
friend sayo , nd so nil your labor was
lost. Well , now , the best thliiR. for thu
farmer , after his good crops and his good
markets , Is good money , nnd when you give
four full pecks for n bushel nnd sell your
wheat by the full bushel , you wnnt to be
paid In dollars that nro worth fully 100
cents each , not only today , but every day
and everywhere. Tills Is what the republi
can party stands for this year those two
thing ? above nil others ; but the republican
party does not stand alone for them. The
greater part of the democratic party , the
great leaders of thu old democratic party ,
arc one with us In the struggle for national
honor and prosperity. ( Continuous cheer-
Ing. )
I am glad to meet nnd greet you all.
but other delegations nro coming nnd 1
must not detain you. It will give me
pleasure to shake the hands of my old
friends , men nnd women , once more.
Three rousing cheers wcro then given
"for the next president of the Unltet
States. "

Ono of the most enthusiastic meetings of
the campaign wag held at Crclgliton hall
ast night under the auspices of the Nonpar-
tlsan Sound Money league. The largo hnll was
filled from the stage to the doors. Including
ho gallery , with a crowd made up of many
of Omaha's best citizens , A largo number
of women were present , and the male portion
tion of the audience was composed of busi
ness men. lawyers , worklngmcn nnd men
of all occupations and political creeds. It
was n most enthusiastic crowd and ap
plauded the speakers most liberally.
The proscenium arch was draped with two
mmense American flags , thcso forming the
only decorations. On the stage were seated ,
besides the speakers , Messrs. Herman
Kountzo , 1 . K. Her. Warren Swltzlcr , Cur
tis Turner , J. 0. Corhy. It. W. Richardson.
John Harbach.1 Arthur Wakcley. John U.
Webster. Frank Colpctzcr , W. I. Klcrstend.
Robert Llvosey nnd others.
The nicotine was called to order by Fran
cis A. llrogan , who said thnt before be
ginning the political part of the meeting he
would Introduce Omaha's favorite singer ,
Jules Lumbard. The whtte-lmlred singer ,
who stirred men's souls during the late un
pleasantness by his songs , was greeted with
irolongcd applause. As soon as silence was
secured Mr. Lumbarrt said that during the
war ho had been a consistent republican ,
having been forced to affiliate with thnt
iarty because It represented the honor and
integrity of the nation. During the thirty
years following the war , he said he had
wen a consistent democrat on other Issues.
: mt the developments of the present cam
paign had forced htm again to Join the
ranks of the republican party. Ho then ex
plained , at some length , the causes which
liad forced him to take this step. Mr Lum-
hard then said that no was going to nrounc
the audience by sinning "America , " and he
called on everybody to Join In the chorus
The crowd rose to the occasion nnd the
building fairly shook with the volume of
sound as all Joined In the stirring national
K. A. Urocan then spoke briefly , explain
Ing the objects of the league which , hi
said , had been organized wUhln the past
two wceka through the exertions of lr
George L. Miller. The purpose of the league
was to hold meetings every night until qlcc
tlon at which the Issues would bo discussed
by citizens of Omaha who had always heel ;
relied on to guide aright the destinies of tin
city. The organization of the league , he
said , wan In line with n movement which
had extended all over the country , slmllni
organizations having been perfected In
nearly every city In the land. Mr. Brogan
lead a telegram from the Nonpartlsan
league of Kansas City saying that a league
had been organized In Miesourl with 11,000
business men as members. Following the
applause elicited by this news , Mr. Drogan
Introduced J. M. Woolworth as the chair
man of the meeting.
Judge Woolworth wcs greeted with n
storm of applausu and as noon as iiulct was
restored he plunged at once Into n discus
sion of tint nil-Important Issues of the day.
Ho predicted that If the candidates stand
ing upon the Chicago platform ehoiilil be
the victors nt the coming election a financial
revolution would Impend over the' country
and no man coulJ say what the result might
.be , "Tho vital question at Issue , . " ho said ,
"Is whether this country should maintain
the measure of value hy which It had con
ducted Its commercial business heretofore
or whether the country should descend to
the standard adopted hy less civilized na
tions thy silver standard nt the ratio of
1C to 1.
"If Bryan should bo elected a great
change would take plnco In the financial
system of the country , " and he dilated upon
the disruption which would follow In busi
ness circles by the repudiation of one-half
of all obligations. The speaker said that
the fact that Dryan Is rushing about from
place to place , malting speeches which are
filled with deception nnd misrepresentation
and falsehood , Is positive proof that his
policy Involves a great change In thci entire
financial system.
"I have always been n democrat. I never
have wavered In my fidelity to the party.
I have always been loyel to her principles.
I am loyal to UIDSO principles now. ( Ap
plause. ) I do not falter one moment In the
advocacy and the belief of the principles
upon which the democratic party at one
time carried this country on to the very
highest point of prosperity and peace. ( Ap
plause. ) Hut I must part company with
the men who have stricken out these prin
ciples and who will return us to some of
the most evil practices of our most unhappy
days. ( Applause. ) I am for prosperity , and
I believe that If Mr. McKlnley be elected
president of the United States ( applause ) ,
I bcllevo If the principles of the republican
party , as declared In Us platform , shall be
accepted and approved nnd established by
the people ob this country on the 3d day of
November , prosperity will soon return. ( Ap
plause. ) And that Is the reason that I
have parted company with the men that
I have walked with and talked with and
counseled with In the days that are passed. "
( Applause. )
The speaker then told of a conversation
with an English capitalist , In which the lat
ter had said that hero was $300,000,000 of
English capital lying Idle , waiting for the
result of the election , and this money would
at once flow Into thla country If McKlnley
Is elected.
Juilgo Eleazar Wnkcley was Introduced as
the first speaker. Ho said ho had always
been n democrat , but ho did not think
the democratic party owed any allegiance
to the crazy patchwork of governmental fal
lacies evolved at Chicago hy mistaken demo
crats , populists and renegade sllverTcpub-
llcans. Bryan's attempts to stir up sectional
strife the speaker denounced as the last re
sort of a despairing demagogue.
Taking Up the Chicago platform , the
speaker said It was composed of three groups
of planks the nullification features , the
covert attack upon the supreme court nnd
the financial planks. He discussed thu first

group of planks , showing that the old doc-
trlno of state's rights was concealed In a
velvety coat , designed to fool the public.
The second group , lie assorted , was placed In
the platform by the descendants of the very
men who hud profited the most by the rul
ings of the supreme court. The financial
plunks wcro also discussed. The speaker
asserted that It wA absurd to suppose that
congress could enact laws Impairing the ob
ligations of ccntrncts , vhcn the constitution
expressly prohibits any such legislation by
nny of the states. Ho declared that the
constitutional provision giving congress the
power to regulate the value of money simply
meant that congress should nnccrlaln the
commercial value of the money metal and
regulate the coinage accordingly. ,
Mr. Thomas Kllpatrlck wns the next
speaker. He addressed himself to the finan
cial question. After a brief historical re
view the speaker treated the question from
a standpoint of sound political economy ,
arguing that the law of supply and demand
regulated the price of ollvcr as well as of
other commercial commodities. Thn recent
Increase In the price of wheat waa referred
to as n proof of this statement. It was
laid down as a principle that a government
can neither IncreBtie nor decrease the value
of a mulal by coining It.
Taking up the quantlllvc theory of the
stlverltcs , who assort that an Increase of
money would Inciease prices , the speaker
argued thnt the theory was fallacious , nnd
ho called attention to the fact that the
amount of silver , gold nnd paper In this
country had been enormously Increased dur
ing recent years , but asserted that the fact
that prices are lower now than tncy Imvo
ever been before was a proof that the theory
was not well founded.
The theory of the allvcrltes that the
farmer will get Increased prices for his
wheat was exploded by the statement that
the price of wncat would be rrgulated by
the market price of the world and dependent
upon the supply nnd demand. In closing
Mr. Kllpatrlck advhed his hearers to vote
for McKlnley and predicted his election.
Henry W. Yntcs was Introduced by the
chairman and announced that , owing to the
lateness of the hour , the committee had
consented that his speech be postponed
until some future tlnu * . He said , however ,
that In the present campaign attacks hail
been made on the bankers as a class and
ho thought It was Incumbent upon mem
bers of that class that they fchould raise
their voices In self-protection. Speaking of
politics , the speaker said It was well known
that the vote of Nebraska will not bo needed
to elect McKlnley , but he said the eyes of
the whole country were ou Nebraska nnd
the state should he carried for MeKlnley by
a decisive majority nml thereby put an end
to the unrest which would follow n close

Scandinavians In the country nnd Chairman
of the Scandinavian department of the re
publican national centinl committee , ad
dressed the Danish-American McKIuK-y and
Hobart club last nlKlit nt Washington hall.
His remarks were devoted to a discussion
of the financial question , which during Urn
past four years ho has thoroughly mastered
by study and pcraonal Investigation gath
ered In n trip around the world , and cspec-
( ally In those countries which arc at pres
ent burdened with frco silver.
The meeting was another of these which
the free stiver clement In the city hava
feared might Influence voters. As n lonac-
qucnco the disgraceful tactics that have
been pursued In other republican gatherIngs -
Ings were In evidence. A poporratlr com
mittee was on hand nt the door throughout
the evening , steering- away Scandinavian
citizens hy false statements that ( iron would
not speak. Despite this fact , however , a
fair audience faced the speaker when ho
began hU remarks. The policy was carried
Into the hall , for throughout the speaker'H
remarks ho was troubled with noises which
emanated from the free ullver crowd that
had como In.
In addition to Mr. Gran , Frank ,
candidate for the state legislature on thu
republican ticket , and John Matthlesen nlao
made remarks. The latter spoke In Danish
upon the money question , llurman spoke on
