My friends, I know that I am nut obeying the bible injunction, “Let the dead bury their dead,” when I speak of it as I would not speak of any botiafide organization of men. But this party occupies a peculiar place in history. It calls itself the national democratic party when it does not expect to carry a single county in the whole country. (Applause.) It called itself a democratic party when it was organized for the express purpose of electing a republican candidate for president. I f it was big enough to justify the name I would call it a stupendous fraud, but ii is too small to I be called stupendous. I will call it a j transparent fraud. It was the first political convention j ever held in this country where the j members of the convention nominated a ticket that they did not expect to j vote for. and the iirst place where men have received a nomination and did ! not want to be voted for. (Continued applause and laughter.) My friends, I have no criticism to make of any man who believes that the election of the Chicago ticket would injure the country, and who in that belief votes the republican ticket, but to find a man who wauls to elect the republican ticket, but who lacks the courage to bear the odium of advocating it, is an entirely different matter. QUOTES FROM A BOLTER. If you want to know what that distinguished citizen (a voice: “Extinguished.”—the gentleman suggests extinguished citizen, but I will say distinguished, because lie has a past, whether he has a future or not—if you want to know what he (Bynum) said about the gold standard, let me read from his sp* cell in favor of silver in 188G: “Again the advocates of gold approach us with open hands and smiling countenances, but I fear with a dagger concealed beneath their coat.** Ile understood the nature of tho animal before he began to associate with it. Ile is right in his description. The gold standard never fought an open tight. It carries the knife of the assassin and does its work behind the mask of a burglar. It is not an open enemy, never was and never will be. (Applause.) Now, see how well he understood them. Ile said: “Oil.” they say, -‘we want silver; we are bimetallists, but we want an honest dollar. Suspend coinage, aud we will drive England, Germany ami otln r nations to-bi lite! alt ism and then the price of silver bullion will appreciate, aud our dollars will be worth a hundred cents.” (Applause, i That is what he said in 1880. Instead of saying now that we will adopt bimetallism and drive other nations to it. he says that we will stand by the gold standard and allow other nations to drive us away from it. (Applause) EX SENATOR INGALLS* WORDS. I might also quote to you what Air. Bynum quoted in that speech from Mr. Ingalls. Now, note the language quoted from ex-senator Ingalls: “No enduring fabric of national prosperity can be builded on gold. Gold Is tile money of monarchs. Kings covet.li it; the exchanges of nations are affected by it; Its tendency Is to accumulate In vast masses p, the commercial centres, and to move from kingdom to kingdom In such volumes as to unsettle values and stir up tile finances oi the world. His the instrument of gamblers and speculators, and the Ideal of Hie miser and thief. 'Hie objector so much adoration, it becomes haughty and sensitive. and shrinks at. the approach of danger, and whenever it Is most needed it always disappears at tile slightest alarm; It begins to look tor refuge; It flies through the nations at war to the nations sd peace War makes It a fugitive. No people in a great emergency ever found a faith-ful ally In gold. It is the most cowardly and treacherous of all metals. It makes no treaty that it does not break; It has no friends whom it does not sooner or later betray. Armies and navies are not maintained by gold, In time of panic and calamity, shipwreck aud disaster, it becomes tile chief agent and minister of ruin. No nation ever fought a great war by the aid of gold. On (he contrary, in the crisis of greatest peril it becomes an enemy more potent titan the toe In the field. But when the battle is won and peace lias been secured, gold reappears and claims tile fruits of victory.’’ GOLD IS A TYRANT. These are words of the distinguished republican senator, and these words are true. Gold is arrogant, tyrannical i in time of peace, and it deserts any na-■ tion in time of war, and never is a friend when a friend is needed and yet jour opponents Hie insisting that we shall maintain this gold standard until foreigners come to our relief. Our opponents insist upon building a commercial fabric upon a handful of at any mercy of our enemies. I know that our policy is democratic formally reasons. In the first place our policy has the indorsement ot the democratic convention, arui that is sufficient to determine what democracy is today. There must be rule by a majority, and tile true democracy lias always meant the rule of the majority. A majority of the democrats of this nation, acting with more freedom and more directness than in any convention lie-fore, have declared that the free coinage of silver at 16 to I without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation is democratic in this country. I Applause ! There are other reasons why we know our cause is democratic; it is because every undemocratic influence in this country is arrayed against us. A cause is known, as an individual is, by the company it keeps. (Applause.) lf you will look at the company which the cause of our opponents keeps you will get some idea of the true character of t he cause. EVERY MAN WHO HAS PROFITED BY SPECIAL LEGISLATION, EVERY TRUST THAT SEEKS TO IMPOSE UPON THE PEO PL E, E VERY SY N DICA I E THAT FATTENS ON PU BLIP ADVERSITY, AND EVERY CORPORATION THAT THINKS IT IS GREATER THAN THE LAW WHICH CREATED IT, ALL THESE ARE OPPOSE!) TO C’S, and give us a certificate that we are doing good work for the people. THOMAS JEFFERSON’S WORDS. There is another reason. If you will look and Ste who have opposed democracy in the past, you will get some idea of the correctness of our position. Let me read you what Thomas Jefferson said in 1800 of the combination which was then opposing democracy. These are the words of Jefferson: Men’s Calfskin hand-welt lace shoes, made on the new Cottage last, a very handsome shoe____ »V rib idee ofSUfSBj $3.75 WE DON T URGE OUR Cloaks We have the styles in demand, rn Men’s Calfskin lace shoes, very heavy bottom, witll invis ible cork sole, the new round toe____ V ti J lit ti \ J $3.50 Sale of Ladies’ Cloaks bandit Furs: Women’s Felt top, ti tnnel-Iined,leather foxed lace shoes, solid sole leather counter and innersoles A representative of the wellknown cloak manufacturers, ^ - $1.40 Joseph Becfcld A - V And T«Vvv; \ they sell Themselves.

He said that tile hurtles of the people would be retained in spite of them, and my friends I believe that is true today. (Applause.) BIMETALLISM IS FAVORED. My friends, we believe in bimetallism. It has been the policy of this country—the parties of this country have declared for it time and again. The republican party in 1892 said that the American people from tradition and interest were in favor ut bimetallism. Traditions do not change in, , . .    .    .    ..    _ . four years; interests do not change iii J «    5'*    J.    sufferings    o four years. The American people to-j ,rea^ applause ) ti classes, and the gold standard wtll not stand for one day in any nation in tho world. (Great applause ) It has resulted iii a constantly rising dollar.    6 Who says that a rising dollar is a good thing? No man ever said it who , ever based his judgment upon the ef- ideas, a feet of a rising standard on the pro-! T0** r ducers of wealth. The only American who ever declared a rising standard to lea good thing is the man whose sym-! pat It it s tire with the idle holders* of I idle cash, and whose hearts are not f mankind. ps*r- love “The aspect of our politics has wonderfully changed since you left us”—he is writing ton friend who had gone abroad—’in place of the noble love of liberty and republican government which carried us triumphantly through the war, an anglican party has sprung up, whose awoved purpose It Is to draw us over to the substance, as they have already done to the forms, of the British government, While the main body of our citizens remains true to republican institutions, against us are the executive, tire federal judiciary, two out of three branches of tile legislature. all the officers of the government, all timid men who prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty, all merchants and Americans trading on British capital, all specula.’ors and brokers, and with them the banks and dealers in the public funds (United States bonds)—a contrivance Invented tor the purpose of corruption, and for assimilating us to the rotten, as well as to the sound, parts of tile British model. It would give you a fever if I were to name to you the apostles who have gone over to these heresies—men who were once Solomons In council aud Samsons in the field, but who have had their heads shorn by the harlot of England. In short, we are likely to preserve the liberty we have obtained, only by unremitting, labors and perils, but we shall preserve it.” THE FRIENDS OF EUROPE. These are the words in w hich Jefferson describes the opposition to the demoratic party in 1800, ninety-six years ago. Show me a man who goes to Europe oftener than he crosses the Mississippi river and I will show you a man w ho thinks this country cannot do anything unless England helps us to do it. Show me a man w ho thinks that this nation cannot survive unless it draws on British capital, show me a man who thinks that our linJjpial policy ought to have for its object the borrowing of money abroad, and I will show' you a man who would make the people bow’ their necks to foreign oppression and observe whatever Financial policy our creditors desire to force upon us. (Great applause.) It seems that they had apostles in those days there and it seems that they were {Solomons in council and Samsons in the field. Why, my friends, you w’ould suppose that Jefferson was describing the present conditions, because every man who leaves the democratic party is willing to make affidavit that he is a Solomon in council and was a Samson in the field; but Jefferson said that day are wedded to bimetallism by tradition and interest, and Hie party that refuses to support bimetallism will find itself divorced from all the otfices in the United States. Our opponents tell us that if we favor free coinage and introduce it here that we w ill go to Hie standard of Mexico. Why don't they tell us that if we maintain the gold standard we will approach the standard of Turkey, which also has a gold standard? I see, my friends, that Hie Armenians have been called anarchists bv those in authority in Turkey, and I I suppose that means that they tire in I favor of bimetallism and have raised their voice against the gold standard i in Turkey. They call us anarchists I over here because we are opposed to I allowing foreign nations to semi in a financial policy and then compel us to accept it whether we like it or not. But I was thinking today, as I saw the people who lined the "streets, as I looked into the laces of those members of the various clubs w ho escorted us from Hie depot to the hotel, and I wondered, if these were anarchists, how the patriots of this country would look if they could get them in a body once and gaze upon them. (Applause.) I f those who assemble here today and those who have assembled in similar meetings throughout this country were really enemies of their country I would like to know how you would save the country from its enemies. (Great applause.) LEGISLATORS DON’T FIGHT. Why, the men who insist on doing our legislating in time of peace never light any batties in time of war. They are the people who call you anarchist’s when you insist on having a hand in legislation, but in time ct trouble they would come to us and say, “Oh, anarchists, save our property, because yon know we cannot afford to light.” (voices, “Hit Bynum again! ) My friends, we are in favor of the money of the constitution. It was good enough for our platform in 1881 because the platform in 1884 declared iii favor of honest money, and it did not stop there, like the advocates of so-called honest money of today, because that platform went on to define what honest money was. It said: “We are in favor of honest money, and gold and silver coinage of the* constitution.” That was good enough money to elect a president and vice-president on in 1884, and in 1888 the platform reiterated the democratic platform of 1881. And in 1892 w’e said: “We hold to the use of gold and silver as standard moriby of the country, and to Hie coinage of both gold and* silver, without discrimination against either metal or charge for mintage.” We are opposed to the gold standard —opposed to it because it is wrong; opposed to it because there is nothing to commend the gold standard to the masses of the people, and never has been. Take away from it Hie support of the money changers, and the mon- DISL1KED BY FINANCIERS. Now, my friends, why do you sup-pose that these New York financiers do not like our advocates of free coin- j age? l ean understand it. All that we say is that while they are as good I as anybody else, they are no I otter of the gold standard, not tor any sonal reason, but because they their country and do not want anybody to be bart. (Applause) NOT DECEIVING ANYBODY. I ain not running under any false and I don’t want an)body to me under a misunderstanding. to tell you what I told others; that if you t in ii k the gold standard is absolutely necessary to th** welfare <>! I this country, you make .a gr- at mis-I take if you vote for tor, because ii I I can help it the gold standard won’t I stay in this country for one rn merit, j (Applause.) It shall be driven back t«* j England, wh re it belongs. Our opponents tell us that our dollar will bt a cheap one. We tell them that th* y never called th** silver dollar a cheap one until it was demonetize d. We insist that legislat ion can undo what hgislation did.

A WORD TO OLD SOLDIERS. There is no reason why any soldier w ho believes iii the principles set forth in the C hicago platform should vote... , against the nominees of the Chicago j !jie v ,ue ul cot^on when you driv platform. (Applause.) There is no * xalue of ^c»ld. let silver be used mi < qual terms, a .<! by increasing Hie Vamo of standard money you lessen Hie strain on g*»id and re*luc<* the purchasing power of an ounce of gold throughout the world. (Great applause.I The silver dollar and the gold dollar will he worth the same whether in Hie form of coin or in the form of melted bullion, but it will be easier to get either when you have the chance t» get both, than it is now, whet* von have to fight for one.

(Applause.) The soldier who went through the war will distinctly remember that when they were out fighting in the field the financiers were making laws. and they will remember that the financiers so made the laws that th** man who furnished money w as paid back in gold, while the man who risKed his life was paid in greenbacks. (A voice: “Worth 4U cents on the dollar.”) The gentleman suggests that they were worth 40 cents on the dollar. He is right. The very men who are now so much afraid that th^ soldier will ie-ceive his pension in 50 cent dollars were not afraid to pay him for his services in 40 cent dollars, measured by gold. (Applause.) My friend?, there is another reason why it seems to me insolent for these men to appeal to the soldier. Why, thev tell the soldier who is drawing $ 12 or $18 or $24 a month that he ought to oppose free coinage because it will he a personal injury to them, and yet the people who tell the soldier that he ought to use his ballot to protect his personal interests tell the soldier that they are in favor for the farmers, who will then have Ilia money to buy w hat they need. I find as I go about a great many bankers w ho find it necessary to support the gold standard. My "friends, I don*! know why a banker should be interested in driving down the value of the farm products of those who do business with him, aud if you want to know the explanation of that condition I can give it. I will say this, that when you have found a man who has been so busy handling monry as not to have time to study the science of financiering, I frill tell yon tin- {treat mat rain ny forte among the bankers ef flit west and soft lh is that tiny yet their news from New York and in-hLructions from Wtll street, aud flit bankers of ll all str( < t at i tin irs from London, and your bankers hen s< I tty aud rail (bt nisei tits patriots, whib they how to foreign dictation.
