A now i wonder Why Adlai is going to Indianapolis there s something in the wind and Adlai pretend he does t know at Indianapolis whew quot what a crowd they aurely did t know i was coming. Tom must have turned out All his City employees. At military Park this is so Luddeni a Ryfun form Llly notified by James d. Richardson the Tennessee congressman makes a speech setting out the Hopes of the democratic party under the Nebraska Standard bearer reference to 96 Campaign. When National chairman Jones introduced James d. Richardson of Tenneseea who made the speech notifying or. Bryan of his nomination there were thousands of upturned faces in every direction. The arrival of the distinguished visitors had been the a Gna for outbursts of applause and National committeeman Thomas Taggart had been Given a Hearty neighbourly greeting when he made his Brief address of Welcome. Or. Bryan sat near congressman Richardson As the latter turned about and at first addressed his remarks to the presidential nominee. Or. Richardson is not manufacturer of Grille they know it you know it we know it everybody knows it you can to by ret the no Tifka great orator and although the immense crowd listened to him patiently there was some nervous moving about on the outskirts for the heat of the Day was stifling. Immediately on the Conci usion of his speech or. Bryan arose and was Given a tremendous greeting which he acknowledged by smiles and a Bow. Or. Richardson spoke As follows in notifying or. Bryan or. Bryan on the one Hundred and Twenty fourth anniversary of the birth of this Republic there assembled in Kansas City the most intense american convention that Ever Caine together in its history. The great body was made up of men from every state and territory in the Union. They came from their respective districts filled with unfeigned enthusiasm for the inspiring cause which brought them together. Their seven millions of constituents had empowered them to Frame a platform of principles and select candidates for president and vice president of the United states in what they considered the supreme st political crisis that Ever came to our country. These delegates All realized that the Republic is in peril. They Felt that their duty was to take such action As would Rescue the state from the Gulf of imperialism in which it had been plunged and thus preserve for themselves and posterity unimpaired and priceless blessings of free government and civil Liberty. You see before you today a committee of delegates from that convention and for whom i speak upon which is represented each state and territory whose duty it is to Convoy to you in formal manner the notification that the August Assembly i have mentioned acting for its members their constituents and for ajl who love and cherish Liberty everywhere with noi dissenting voice chose you a the candidate for president and adopted a plat st Sutlon says that All taxes shall be uniform throughout the country. The Power to tax is the Pover to destroy. When those in Power proceed As they have done by recent acts of Congress to construct a Tariff Wall against one territory and thus exclude products it robs from other states and territories of the Union. Dodge As they May they exercise Imperial Pover. No King or emperor can do More. They cannot do the acts and deeds which can Only be done in a kingdom or an Empire and pay they Are not imperialists and that there is no Issue of imperialism. The platform declares that imperialism Means Conquest abroad and oppression at Home it Means the Strong Arm of the military and its commitments its great standing army. It was this that drove from Europe to our shores millions of our fellow citizens and which is a constant menace to the liberties of the people. Large standing armies have no place in our Republic. Imperialism can Only of maintained by brute Force and without militarism. Imperialism cannot exist. Tho Union or Matins of the two brings Forth Cesar ism whether under that or some other name. Imperialism Means death to democracy and in Publica Elsm it Means More swords and few Plo shares. Militarism Means death to self government and More Spears and fewer pruning looks. La this Battle we will make the fight thickest and hottest upon this monster. Imperialism which feeds on the life blood of Liberty. The cause you represent sir is humanity the highest degree of humanity is to help others to be free. The just punishment of a Pio ple that a enslave and Rule Over another people is loss of their own Liberty for a democracy cannot be an Empire and remain effects of trusts. The platform also declares unceasing warfare in nation state and City against trusts and private monopolies in every form. This declaration Means that the Laws now on the statute books against this growing evil must be enforced by honest and competent officials and that there shall be enacted other Laws efficient enough to completely govern and control All trusts and monopolies. The baneful effects of these organizations cannot be estimated or described. They have grown up under the fostering care of the party now in Power which has completely controlled All the Law making authority for nearly four years. By its inaction the it arty confesses its liability or disc Oclina lon either of which is criminal to health the trusts. If the people therefore Ould curb on the trusts they must i the sweatshop increase and the wages of those in the rur Jii districts barely sustains life. The. Iris Nils of the trusts and those who a.

Son of the of vice companies Lewis Stevenson identical nominee who to father to this City. Pre ,1 Ines Jtimo 1 Rich Man s wealth a will increase while the poor Man will de May and pm will reall quot How wide it the Kilt a tim Between a splendid and into an entangling Alliance which threatens to involve us and which will in the end inevitably Lead us to bloody Kwh great Brill a. They have As part of their policy made an Alliance with great Britain which at present for prudent reasons Only they try to conceal but the fact is apparent. It May not have the solemnity of a formal Alliance but it shows an understanding. If it were not True Why was it that the Hay Paunce Fote treaty was made a treaty which Abandons find virtually abrogates the Monroe doctrine. Other evidences of the fact Are Manifest in the startling declaration made by those High in the party councils in Congress that our next War is to be with Germany England s most powerful rival in the distribution by the administration through two or More bureaus of the government of King Lush literature favourable to England in her contest with the Boer republics and still further facts that might be mentioned. England is anxiously seeking a closer Alliance with us. If we accept her overtures and depart from our traditional policy of treating aliens impartially we May gain her Good will but it will be at the expense of incurring the ill will of All Otner nations with which to should live in peace and Friendship. Quot while from the reasons i have mentioned or from timidity the administration denies that such an Alliance exists Vith England the latter government is bolder. In a Public speech startling in its character Ner Secretary of state for the colonies Chamberlain not Long since said quot that the time is not far Distant when England will be confronted with a combination of Powers and our Only Hope is to draw the colonies into closer relationship and maintain Friendly relations a Ltd our Kinsmen the people of the United states. They have interests identical with ours. I would go so far As to say that is terrible As War May be even War i believe would be cheaply purchased if in a great and Noble cause the stars and stripes and the Union Jack should wave together Over an Anglo Silton if the administration is not openly. It is covertly but none the less certainly leading up to such an Alliance As is described. What have our patriotic citizens bom in lands other than England to say in such an exigency quot we Are opposed to All discrimination against ii id fatherland in favor of great Britain. Quot Why should big gland be singled out to become a special object of favouritism of our part the Fin mortal Wash Liston in his fare or.

C. Wallace of lddlana4>olib pulled the lever and the Bryan special rolled out of Lafayette. Wallace laughed and said quot Well Well just take a Little jog Down to Lebanon. Get up Here behind me or. Bryan and Don t get your head too far out. We re or. Bryan who has been car toned so often As the Engineer at the throttle of the locomotive of state pulled his hat Down to his ears and climbed up behind or. Bryan and wm., jr., in the cab. Wallace while Willie Bryan who signs his name William Jenny Ngy byjr., took fat in . The younger of the Williams. While his distinguished father took a great interest in what was going on inside the cab and paid some attention to the crops Willie with his Cap in one hand leaned far out of the cab window and shouted like a Comanche As the train want through the towns. The winds come none to Swift for Willie and notwithstanding his father s expressed opinion regarding the regulation of Speed he rather urged the Engineer on to turn or it probably was due to the urging of the boy that Wallace gradually pulled the throttle open wider and wider until the whole head of steam was on and William Jennings Bryan or. And sr., were speeding through space at the rate of about a mile a minute As they came Down into Thorntown and out toward Lebanon. Or. Bryan asked Many questions about the engine and the track and took a keen interest in what was going on around him when he was not Busy keeping company with his Sombrero. The ride was made during the most pleasant part of the Day and there was Little dirt. Or. Bryan was glad enough however when Lebanon was reached and he was ready to get Back into the cushions of his parlor it Oach. Before leaving the cab or. Bryan presented the Engineer and fireman with souvenir badges and said that it was the Best ride he had had for several years. He threatens to take up with the practice of Riding in the cab but if Willie insists on being an incentive to greater Speed it is Likely that he will be left at his favorite pastime of looking at the cartoons of his a. Engineer Vallace said last night quot that Man Bryan s a Brick. I m not saying what my politics Are but i am saying that William Jennings Bryan is a great Man he knows How to be a Man among us Fellows and i have something of a different opinion of him. He would soon get Over that slow Riding idea. I wish i had him while i was coming around those our e3 just outside the City. That is one of the greatest places on the Road to break in a when he was told that or.
