The House was crowded and the audience which included practically All the delegates to the democratic state convention took every Opportunity to applaud. Or. Bryan first reviewed the record the Republican party accusing it putting the Dollar above the Man. He then took up the Silver question saying Prosperity did not set in until six months after the election when the Klondike Gold mines began to be heard from. The republicans who claim that times Are better because the balance Trade is in favor the United states give away their own position end admit the democratic View the quantitative character the Money is Correct. The 0,500,000 democratic voters the democratic party in 1896 were for Silver. The 7,000,000 Republican voters were for a platform which called for International bimetal ism. Only the Palmer and Buckner voters were for the Gold standards less than i per cent yet now the Iowa Republican platform goes a step farther and is mainly for Gold alone. Moreover the republicans threaten to retire the greenbacks though they have never been before the people that Issue. The speaker next went after the trusts hut said if the democratic party neglected the Silver question to attend to trusts it would rightly forfeit the Confidence the people. The Money Trust is the biggest Trust Cfall. A new danger the trusts has just been developed. When a Trust gets control All the factories in a Given line and the hands in one factory strike the Trust will Oise that enc establishment and make its goods at the others. Ashen the workmen at that place Are starved to the Point working for any wages offered that factory will be reopened and a lockout to reduce wages will he in. A crated at another factory. Or. Bryan closed his speech by a lengthy discussion imperialism. The difference he said Between a Republic and an Empire is this a re Public needs an army 25,000 for 70,-000,000 people. An Empire needs four a times that Large an army when 10,-000,000 population in added. This suits the Young men who get fat jobs in the army but not the people who pay the $1 ,500 a year needed to maintain each Soldier in the Philippines. Even if we succeed in killing off All the natives you cannot get Young americans to go there they prefer to live in Iowa and Nebraska. As the tagalus Are largely christians and our native allies Are largely Mohammedan we ought to ask the Sultan to help us subdue the Christian insurgents. This government ought to make a declaration Good intentions toward the Philippines As it did toward Cuba. The president ought to have done so if he did not have the Power should have asked Congress for it. Now he might Call a special session to ask for the Power. More flouting Palace.

Tho Orest Progress the lest three tears leaves no doubt it Force that have contributed to this Greet results number business failures steadily diminishing. The eyes the world were turned in scorn upon the american people from 1893 to 1896. A great nation with wonderful resources and an intelligent Active and industrious people seemed to be in a state business collapse and the foe Republican institutions in Europe pointed to the paralysis business conditions As proof that our system government was a failure. The eyes the world Are again the United states but the look scorn has Given place to one unbounded amazement. Last year the United states sold to the other nations the world the tremendous sum $330,000,000 More than it purchased that was the net profits the United states for one year As shown by the official figures our foreign Commerce. In 1898 the Trade balance in our favor was even larger. Over $1,000,000,000 to the credit Side the Ledger in two years to say nothing tile tremendous sum spent by the people in the increased comforts and luxuries life. The world begins to realize at last that the commercial and Industrial supremacy the United states has comm London Bankers reluctantly admit that new York is today a greater Money Center than tile English me Tyropolis. The american people have been so Busy during these years that they hardly appreciate the magnitude what they have been doing. Some democratic calamity howlers who have not yet Learned a new cry since 1896 still insist that Prosperity has not come. Let them explain what the tremendous balances Trade in our favor mean if it is not Prosperity. Why is it that the business failures for july 1899, As shown by r. G. Dun amp company a authoritative report were fewer in number and smaller in the amount involved than for any month which there is any record excepting Only May the present year Why is it. If the Prosperity Mckinley and the republicans promised has not come that the Bank England today virtually acknowledges that it will have to look to new York for Gold when it need to increase its Reserve Why is t that practically All the Gold produced in Australia England a great antipodean Colony this year will come direct to the United states to Settle in land and australians balances to i Quot As r.
