Adams County Free Press (Newspaper) - September 27, 1900, Corning, Iowa AJIHortie Print Corning Adams CountyIowa Thursday September 27 1900 Vol XXX No 39 A FINE nEETINQ Senator Dolllver nukes a Great Speech to a Large Aiiillence in This City Senator Dolliver hada splendid meet kig at the court house in this afternoon It had been the itehtiori to hold the meeting in the park and stand and seats were ar rittiged for this purposebutSenator requested an in door meeting to view of the fact that it was almost Mripbssible for him to make two out doorspeeches thesame day The court Ifouse was too small to accommodate and this was the only regret table feature of a splendid meeting Trie speaker was metat thestation by alarge crowd including a number of the older republicans carrying a banner We Voted f orLincoln W Mercers fine team conveyed Senator Doiiiver to the hotel and as Hour later the procession formed to rriarcri to the court bouse It was in charge of Dr Hillweg and the Carbon and Brooks bands furnished the inusic Ose largebanner attracted consider able attention Jibwas the Tammany v tiger wjth his tail frozen in a large cake of ice behind which Ctoker was con cealed Bryan was astride the tiger and seemed to be enjoying the close re lationship with the unclean beast inscribed The Cata rnount Issue Wljile underneath were the words Twas a cold day for Bryan when he went in cahoots with Crokef Otherbanners read1 Standby the boys at the front and Have youlieard of wheat this year J n C Grouse of Prescott had been selected to preside over the meet ingandafterTausic by the bands he in troduced the speaker very briefly The latterspoke morethan two hours and there was not a minute of the time when hedid not hold the close atten t ion of the audience It was in sym pathy with him from the start arid no man knows better how to maintainah advantage pt this kind And it was a speech which democrats enjoyed in spite i ofthe manner in which their partys record andprinciples were dis sectedandUcriticized The senator declared that the issues whichthV democratic party had huretb fore raadepreroinent are no longer de tyatable free trade issue won a victory for the democrats in 1892sbut the result of the trial of that system was that it was left without friends In another paramount issue was started and cleverly presented tothe people in theway of business troubles but the good sense of the American people enabled them to see through Mr Bryans sophistries and to make a cor srect analysis of his claims They stood up for national honor and spurned the promise of private gain through naiidnal repudiationHe then took up Mr Referring to Vwhtinuea tBat priceswoiild still further decHne Senator DoHiver said that If the patriarch Noah had prophesied a drouth instead of a deluge and pdvo irrigation instead of ark his friends and rela have Jess reason to com plain of him tHan Mr Bryans followers liow have to complain of him Prices of prpdncts flhd labor have increased Wages have gpneup ancKnot down The tenure of employment more certain and industrial prosperity is at its best Instead ef the grasping grinding oppression ofthe money power we Have lowxer rates of interest and moire money to loan than ever The democratic campaign of four years ago was in the nature of a promise They claimed we were hard tip and proved it The difference of orjiniouon that subject between Bryan and ilcKinley was at what hole hard limes came in and at which it should go out Bryan said corn was cheap be cause dollars were high therefore to make corn higher cut the value of the dollar in two McKinleys plan was quite different His idea was to open the shops and factories and thus in crease the demand for breadstuffs and meat Bryan said there wasnt enough money in circulation foui years ago and we admit he was right Conditions were such that men could neither get into debtnor get out When people got hold of money instead of deposit ing it in the bank as had been their custom they took it home and hid it i about the house or buried it There was 3 discussion going on about money arid a proposition to reduce its value so people who had money prepared to hoid onto what they had until they saw what was going to bo done The result was that banks could not loan mouey because they had none fo loan i andthey had to call in loans to pay de posits Events proved the correctness of Mr McKinleys plan When the debate was concluded inNovember and the business world found there was to b6 110 change the money came out of hiding at once ready to be loaned to whoever had security If the taints of the United States were run night and day to their full capacity they could turn out fifty millions of silver dollars a year Sinue McKinley was inaugur ated more than Bye hundred millions of dollars have been added to our circu lation and that without theaid or con sent of any other nation an amount which insilver would require the ser vice the mints of the United Statesmen years to coin Bryaneaid under the gold standard the tendency of prices ia downward while the fact is prices havegone up Bryan said that under the goldstarid ard wages would go down to the point of bare subsistence but Carrol Wright the most eminent statistican iu the country says that since 1806 wages have gone upuntilnow they are greai er thaui at any othiT time in thehis tbry of the world the gold standard would put the money into the hands of the money kings of anil Wall streets Butthis like all his other gloorqy prophesies has not come Mr Ijolliver purchased the old homestead of Gov Carpenter on which was a mortgage i for bearing 8 per cent interest held by the Xbrthwestern Mutual Life Insurance company iAfter McKinleys election heoffered the insurance company its choice of renewing the mortgage at 5 per cent or acceptingtheybalariee in cash By return mail the company ac cepted the former alternative making asaving to Mr Dolliver of 3 per cent in interest and proving that the elec tion of McKinley had been a direct benefit to him SenatorDolliver then took up what he called the of the campaign The firstwas the charge thatwe were to be ruined by a largestanding army His tribute to the army which has ever been worthy the respect of our people was received with enthusiasm and there was not a man in the audience but knew in his heart that militarism was a fake issue He spoke of Gen Law ton arid the letter he wrote only a few days before a Filipino bullet Jaid him low in which lie declared that if he iwere shot by a Filipino bullet it might almost as well come from one of his own men since hostilities were pro longed by the encouragement which ceitaip people in gave the soldjersrictthe audience who kriewipersonallywhata terrible thing thefire in the rear is were particularly impressed with this portion of the speech The second noise was about the atti tude of this government in the South African war had offered medita tion which was all that we could do arid more than any other country had done evenvthe mother country Hollind refusing todo so much for the South African republicis The hypocrisy of the democratic Boer sympathy was shownin the history of the Sl800 which was raised for the relief of the Boer widows But Pat OFarrel re ported that of this money went for wine although the Boers clid not drink 8104 for carriges and the Boers walked 85U8 for hotel bills while the Arlington boarded them free as an ad vertisement and so on OFarrel re ported that he had 814 left for Boer widows and they will probably not get a cent of that The third noise was about the trusts It was shown that the only antitrust law now on the statute books were placed there by the republicans Bry ants on record as having favored a con stitutional amendment if it be found that congress has not the power to set tle the trust question and supreme court decisions have shown that it has riot Yet when it was i proposed to amend the constitution so as to give congress power to destroy the trusts the democrats raisedthe old cry of states rights arid voted almost solidly against the bill while every republican except one voted for it This is the democratic record on the trust question The imperialism noise was shown up In the course of his remarks on this subject Senator Dolliver paid a glovaeg tribute to Col Hepburn ihrough whose effort tho construction of the Nicara gua canal has been assured and the tribute was received with enthusiasm The speaker thought that an individual whose life was too smooth and easy never amounted to much It took trials and responsibilities to develop character The same is true of nations and providence seemed to have decreed that this country should tastist in spreading human liberty The pos session of the Philippines brought re sponsibilities and troubles but the American people were not accustomed to shrink from either PRESCOTT REPUBLICANS REPUBLICAN MEETINGS An Enthusiastic
