WICKHAM GETS THE MONEY
Tho city council yesterday morning
awarded tbs contract for tha paving of
East Pierce street from Oak atreet to
North Avenue to James Wlckhsm on bis
bid of $1.89. Tho street is to be paved with
Galesburg block on concrete bsso and the
work has to bo complsted by December 1,
otherwise the contract becomes null and
Told. Tbs only other bidder tor ths work
was tho McOorlsk company of Dea Moines.
n contract for ths curbing was awarded
to Nekton ft Olson on their bid of 29 cents
easb or 31 cents certificates. The city
marshal was inatructed to notify tbs Gas ft
Electrto company to lay Its' mains at ones
and to thoroughly tamp tho ditches.
Contractor Wfckham stated to ths coun
cil that property owners on South Sixth
street between Ninth and Eleventh ave
nues wanted It paved with Galesburg block
Instead ot Galesburg brick; also ths prop
erty owners on the same atreet between
Tenth and Eleventh avenues wanted con
crete base Instead of Council Bluffs sand
and were willing to pay tho difference in
tha cost. The council said It was' willing;
to. permit the changes, provided Wlckham
secured proper waivers from all tbs abut'
ting property owners Interested. : Tbess
waivers must bs on hand at ths meeting of
ths council next Monday evening. t
The ordinance providing tor a cbango in
tho grade of Vorhees street between Union
strest and Lincoln avsnus was again laid
over. One ot tho principal reasons for this
failure ot tho council to take some defi
nite action on this measurs, which . has
been pending for several weeks, wsa dua
to a notice from Frank J. Barlow threat
ening that if the grade waa' changed be
would at once sue tho city tor $500 dam
ages. Tbs payroll for the streets and alleys
force for August, amounting to $82.04,
which bad been laid over from the reg
ular meeting, was taken up and allowed.
After this payment thero will bo less than
$1,000 la the fund.
Tho city council after numerous com
plaints have been filed for months. In
structed tho city marshal to at onco notify
tho motor company to repair tha paving
between Its tracks on Broadway from First
to Thirteenth street.
Ths council adjourned to Monday night.

The convention was called to order at
10:80 by Chairman McConnell of tho state
committee and prayer 'was offered by Rev.
Frank Adams of this city. There were
the usual snnotincements of committee
meetings and H. C. Taylor of Bloomfleld
was introduced as tha temporary chairman
of the convention. Mr. Taylor read hia
address, which wss quite long and tedious.
There was no enthusiasm manifest save
where be mentioned the name ot Bryan.
But his address was so long that tha dele
gates did not care to follow It through.
He started with the declaration of In
dependence and discussed the record of
the democratic party in the ' early days
of the republic, said It bad fought tbs
war ot 1812 and bad acquired all the ter
ritory that waa contiguous to the union,
then be . denounced the republican party
and characterized . the republican plat
form as an "utterance ot ths most Insin
cere aggregation of tho lineal descendants
of Ananias ever assembled." He said the
republican party could offer no excuse
for failure to paas any measure controlling
the trusts reducing the tariff or to
strengthen the Interstate committee law.
He was somewhat mild on the subject ot
the war In tha Philippines, but took oppo
sition to It In general. s ;- . r
He spoke an follows:
" Speech of Temporary Chairman."'
From a democratic tariff of revenue with
incidental protection In the early struggles
of our industries, the republican party has
built up a tariff for plunder and with no
excuse therefore excepting that the bene
ficiaries of such a tariff have tilled the cam
paign treasury of the republican party to
overflowing with the money thus taken
from the people, and have by this means
won every victory they have achieved in tho
last quarter of a century.
Emboldened by republican success In the
last congressional campaigns, the robbery
of the people by tariff taxation and by the
trusts that havs multiplied under the fa
voritism and the enforced absence of com
petition, this party has been unable to
discern the advancing tide of popular In
dignation until within the last lew months,
and they are now seeking to avert disaster
to their psrty by Insincere contentions ot
hostilities to trusts.
Their bad faith during the Fifty-sixth
congress, when they pigeon-holed their own
anti-trust bill rather than let It come to
a vote, is too well known to need dis
cussion. They are now pointing to the con
stitutional amendment proposed In tho
Fifty-sixth cone-iess for the control ot
trusts as evidence of their good intentions.
in republican piatrorra adopted one
month ago in thla city aays, "We favor any
modification of . the tariff schedules that
may be required to prevent their affording
shelter to monopolies."
Thla statement in their platform after
six years f republican control In all
branches of the government, and after their
apeclal pet Industries have been given every
opportunity to rob the people, is the utter
ance of the most Insincere asgregatlon of
the lineal descendants of Ananlaa that aver
assembled under one root. '
Shelter to Monopoly.
There can be no modification of the tariff
schedules to prevent affording shelter to
monopoly without entirely eliminating ths
protective feature of tariff taxation.
In ths name of all the Gods at once, what
doea this great nation of ours, which has
gone almost wild In a mad frenzy of com-,
merclallsm, which has no feara of any for
eign power on earth or all the powera com
bined, which has the most gigantic com
binations of wealth, powers in sll Chrtsteu
dom and which has produced men who are
able to command, aye. even atagger the
crowned heads and sovereigns of all the
nations of the world with their stupendous
enterprises cf combined capital, what doea
this great nation want with a protective
tariff? A protective tariff. A protectee
tariff. To protect what? Our weak In
dustries ? Nc, we have none. To protect
the strongeat nation In the world? To pro
tect the greatest combination of wealth
and the greatest Industries In the greatest
nstlon on the face of the globe? It Is sll
wrong. ' The theory is wrong, ii snouia
never be resorted to except as a diplomatic
measure In times ot extremity when a weak
nation with Infant industries Is clamoring
and struggling for sn existence. It robs
the world of th? advantages of the differ
ent kinds of soil, of ths different kinds
of climate snd the different pursuits of
governments and their people. Open your
gates, lay down your bars, tear away ths
whII nf nrotectinn and let God and nature
instead of J. Plerpont Morgan, Mark Hanna
and the comotnea powers oi wnim regu
late the production and blessings of the
It is not the province cf our party to con
demn the acquisition of wealth, nor to at
tack men who bv Industry . and honesty
have become rl"h. There ia naturally too
much prejudice against men of means,
without adding fuel to the flames In any
Lubllc expression except as it legitimately
ears upon the body politic.
An open commercial channel, so to speak,
through which all men without the special
aid of their governmente may acquire prop
erty. Is a Just rile. The man who by hon
est and fair dealings In the open market, or
by industry, acquires to himself a great
r mount of the world s anoda. Is justly en-
titled to the same. - There can be no prac
tical ana just laws ena-ciea wnu-n prvvrni
or put an embargo umn men In their hon

thla acqulxttlon Is best for society is an
Open Field In' Bnslness.
But governments In order to be properly
founded must be content to "give all Indi
viduals, not corporations, an open field la

world for action. Corporations sre on a

Whoever thought of Imperialism before
our treaty with Spain In the purchase of
the Philippine Islands? What loyal cltlxen
of the United Statea ever dared dream of
the people of this grand liberty loving na

How can we reconcile this attitude to
ward the Philippine people with that of the
Declaration of Independence, the constitu
tion of our country and the bill of rights
of every state In the union? What is to
become of the Monroe doctrine?
Forgetting all the principles which were
so Indelllbly stamped upon not only every
department of our government, but upon
every Individual composing it, the present
sdmlnlstration attempts to lead us away
from the traditions of our fathers and
change the whole trend of our natures from
champions of liberty throughout the world
to the despollere of the freedom of a race
of people without out a single excuse there
for, lead us to the alter of imperialism.
Commercialism and Imperialism.
Commercialism and Imperialism go hand
In hand, "powerless each without the
other." Never before In the history of this
government have the people become so
alarmed and awakened to the thought that
we are now upon the very threshold of a
new era, at the very door of a radical
change In our forma and system of gov
ernment. I have faith in the American people. I
have confidence in their good Judgment,
their love of country and their regard for
democratlo principles. I believe they see
the tendency of the times and have the
courage and conviction to eay "thus far
Shalt thou go and go farther."
The democratlo party has no apologies
nor concessions to make for the successful
fight It made In the last three campaigns
with that honest, brilliant and courageous
chaiuuiuii vf t!i rights cf the cersmon p
ple, William J. Bryan, aa Its leader. I say
siccessful because we compelled the party
In power to relieve the strained conditions
of the finances of our country and today
we have almost double the amount of
money in circulation we had at the com
mencement ot that fight. The party made
that fight on the quantltated theory of
money ana compelled the republican party
to acknowledge we were right In our con
tention. The Increased amount of gold In
our mines and from the exchange of our
surplus products for the gold of other na
tions and the coinage of millions of silver
have relieved our people from the evils of
a limited circulation of money. It remains
to be seen whether this relief Is but tem
porary or shall prove to be permanent. At
any rate the country has recovered from its
financial illness and is not at preaent In
need of any doctoring along the line of a
sufficient circulating medium with which
to do the business of our country.
