Itulatnn, of Leb- anon, democratic candidate for secre- tary of stale, uddresaetl a, deinocruUc meetliiif at the city hall last evening. Mr.' Ilalaton arrived In I he afternoon, and was vbited at hia hotel by many of the leading demoeruta of the city, lie was escorted to the hail in the evening by a bund. The hall was comfortably' filled, despite the threatening weather. Mr. ilulstan wad loudly cheered as he entered the hall, and ugaln when he arose to speak, lie was Introduced by the Hon. U. C. Itell, who referred to him as "the next secretary of dtate of. Indiana." After a few tiupny remarks of an in- troductory fnature, Mr, Ralston took up the national Isaues, and for an hour and a half held his audience attentive (to his every word. He said In part: The result of the election of two years ayo was not satisfactory to the great army of more than six million Incorruptible citizens, who followed and fought under the ban- ner of the peerless William Jen- nings Bryan. And speaking Tor my- self, and for every man here, I say that our convictions on the great principles for which we fought then are Just as strong to-day as ever.'. Nothing has occurred to convince us that we were wrong. The democrat- ic, party will probably again this yearj labor under the charge of be- inff'unfriendly to capital. The charge" is false. "We are not hostile to capital, nor unfriendly to corpor- ations. We would not, if we could, do'away with the corporations, for "recognize them as the outgrowth of the world's energy and industry. But we" are opposed to having the corporations and combines of capi- tal guide the pen of our chief, .mag- determining the legis- lative policies. of the government. ihe'riian'bf r' vest, apply your best energy-and shrewdest skill, use .your best endeavors to add thou- sands to your thousands. But you muse-hot .seek to force the people- corporation can be suffered to become greater that its creator.- No corporation must exercise powers without authorization by arid res- pect for the government, and the government In this free land is the people. .This is our position, and we shall enter the contest anew on the lines democratic policy of equal rights to all; and the method.' by which we.shall seek to secure equal'rights for'every man. is by the'free and unlimited coinage of gold 'and-silver at the ration of 16 to 1, supplemented with, a paper cur- rehcy, redeemable in coin, in quanti- ties sufficient to supply the demand. But, they tell us that" would de- base and cheapen our currency. Now. thare is a difference between cheap, money and unsound, money. "We don't want an unsound dollar, nor .are we advocating one, but .we prefer a dollar that seeks its habita- tion among the people rather, than, the dollar that seeks a hiding place behind barred doors, tfhere a thing as a dollar that la too 'dear. But where do the republicans stand? They say, of course, that they-are for sound money. J3veryoQ.e is -for sound money, so their declaration is merely a -jingle of high sounding words, without They do not declare for their principles Irankly, as the democrats do. Their answers are evasive. They don't- know where they are at Go ask, as .an-experiment, two republicans they mean by sound money, and you Trill not find any two "an- swers alike. Their orators are eva- sive. giving out grandiloquent phrases, that, sifted, down, have no meaning. Mr. Italston here took up the declar- ation of the Indianapolis "gold standard convention.. That, be said, was the real republican platform." but not a single republican orator had the courage vto proclaim bis faith In that instrument- He continued: Tel, if the republicans elect the next congress, they will carry out the provisions of this declaration. Kot a laborer, not a farmer helped to compose that document. Not a man-who has contributed to tbe general weallh oC the country was present at that convention or had ,-do with framing this in- strument. "William. McKlnlcy.

Tct'thc republicans nominated him. on a pold platform. Is It not rcmark- aWe that.a gold convention shouM nominate a man with such a bimetal- list's Ah. It was .because they knew thst TUr.

The iwople, hu (iecliired. would never he sufu. The bunks are all right, hut their rights tire not su- perior or paramount tn the rights of the people. Wfe should not hesitate to follow the men whn have atood far the people, as against their ojijires-atira. Andrew Jackson took a stand against tfranting any bank the right to issue currency. Thomas Jef- ferson regretted the omission of a clause in the constitution against mon- opolies, and prophesied the dangers that would result from combinations of capital, the dangers from which, he aald, were more to be feared than ans" external foes. He declared, In ad- vance ot Jackson, that theyunlt. of value should be baaed on both" metals. Now, then, when 1 find Jefferson, and Jackson and Lincoln and Bryan ,.on One side, and Wall street oil the 6th- er, I shall not hesitate which rdjifl' to' take, r will stand with Jeffersoniand; "Washington in preference toSatand- Ing with Lombard street, of London. The democratic party, Mr. Ralston de- had always stood, in matters affecting taxation, on the right side. When the broke out the democrats In con- gress ursed the coinage of the silver seignorage. The republicans voted lib.-but finally agreed to coin one.milllon'doUars a-month, to pay'the. soldiers, in-what they had before claimed .would be fifty-cent dollars.

The parochial schools of the Lutheran churches will not celebrate the day. and in fact, some of the teachers said to the Journal yesterday, that the matter had not come to their notice, nor had it been mentioned In- their meetings. One of the teachers who attended the conference of L-utheran teachers at too much honor In the demo- of this war question to let it Turning to state Issues, .Mr. Ralston said at the beginning pf the cam- fKilgn. Chairman Hemly, ot the-repub- lican state committee, had Instructed the district chairmen'to "let the gold stan- dard, the tariff, and national honor alone, and talk war and McKinley like the devil.' The republicans were to be silent on the noney question, although the democrats were thundering It at the "doors. Since then Mr. Hcrnly sot acquainted with'the tttuaiion, and changed his instructions He even, with a big flourish, declared he would "force the democrats to talk fi- .nance" when the democrats had Tjecn tryirtp to force the .republicans to do It for two years. while we are talk- ing linance. wctara not going- war continued Mr. Halston. There Is crntlc side rest." The disgrace, the obloquy ot It all, belongs to the re-publicans. The demo- crats demanded war in the interest of humanity. The republicans turned a dear car until thoroughly convinced that they ould lose the fall elections unless Cuba ere made free. Then they talked war. too. So the democrats demanded ivar for humanlty's.sake; the republicans went to war in order to carry the election, Mr. Ralston then devoted some time to a re- capitulation or the .war. The democratic party, he said, sent forth all the heroes of the war. The men who achieved im- mortal fame, he said, were democrats, the men who are cursed by be- reaved parents-and widows for neglect, are the republican managers ot this war. They may talk, he said, about the Christianity of the administration. but there is no excuse why American sol- diers. the bravest ot the brax'c. should have starved to death on.American soil: no reason why sick soldiers should have been lefUto -rot. -within a stone's throw of Washington. The giving over of the lives of. of the nation's bravcsl youth to "chc care of a dog doctor, he said, was tho monumental disgrace of- Ameri- can history.
