SARTOR & ROEMPKE,
118 W. Commerce St. Estab. 1845
SPLENDID—Never tasted such coffee
before is what they say about
Afk your grocer. It comes In 1 and
legislative body. In a word, we pro-
pose to readjust the lost balance he-
twecn the people nnd their lawmakers.
"Our jury is the Nation; our proof the
reoord of the Republican party; our wit-
ness Theodore Roosevelt; our attorney
Mr. Bryan of Nebraska.
"The public mind is fast preparing for
a radical revision of our tariff laws.
Some of the Republican leaders have
begun to realise this, but they say that
the tariff must he raised by 'its friends.'
"We answer that the time has come
when the taxpayer should be taxed by
his friends. The rigid rule that taxa-
tion should only be for revenue is the
only rule that will protect the people
from that abuse of the taxing power
which has been the source of nearly all
tho misgovernment that has cursed
"But we are told that the country has
no further need of the Democratic
party, since a Republican President has
blossomed out as the foe of monopoly.
1 would give the President all the
credit that is hi.s due, but I must say
all the glory he has won Is measured
by the faithfulness with which he has
followed the teachings of William J.
Bryan and compelled the Republican
party to fulfill the promises of the
1 democratic platform.
"But, however that may be, neither
Roosevelt or any other man can control
the character of the Republican party.
The very moment the Republican
party i1- relieved of the pressure of Mr.
Roosevelt's personality it will go back
to its old love and its old masters as
naturally as the dog returneth to his
vomit and the sow that was washed to
her wallowing in the mire."
Senator Carmack was followed by Sen-
ator \\\ J. Stone of Missouri, who in a
tew words introduced Mr. Bryan. The
demonstration greeting Mr. Bryan as he
entered the hall\was renewed. Follow-
ing his felicitous phrases of response to
the welcome, a great hush fell on tho
crowd when Mr. Bryan announced that
he would "read a statement concerning
a topic which had been generally dis-
cussed since he had touched on it dur-
ing his siieech at Ne w York."
lie then read the following statement
before entering on his main speech:
"Before addressing myself to other sub-
jects which I wish to discuss, 1 beg your
indulgent, while I present a statement
in regard to one question concerning
which my attitude has, to some extern,
"In my ts;>cech at the New York rccen-
lion I made some remarks concerning
the Government ownership of railroads,
and 1 thought that I had expressed my-
self so clearly that my position could
not be misconstrued even by those who
desire to misconstrue it. The New York
speech was prepared in advance. It was
not oply written, but It was carefully
revised. It stated clearly what 1
wanted to state and I have nothing to
withdraw or modify in tho statement
therein made. What I say tonight is
rather in the nature of an elaboration of
the ideas therein presented.
"After quoting from the Democratic
platform of 1900 that 'a private monopoly
is indefensible and intolerable,' and after
laying it down as a principle that public
ownership should begin where competi-
i tion ends nnd that the people should
j have the benefit of any monopoly that
might be found necessary. I stated that
1 had reached the conclusion 'that rail-
roads partake so much of the nature of a
monopoly that they must ultimately be-
come public property and be managed
by public officials in tho interest of
the whole community.'
"I added: 'I do not know that the
country is ready for this legislation. I
do not know that the majority of my
own party favors it. but I believe that
an increased number of the members of
all the parties see in public ownership
a sure remedy for discrimination be-
tween persons* and places and for the
extortionate rates for the carrying of
freight and passengers.'
Trunk Ll*e Ownership,
"I then proceeded to outline a system of
public owne rship whereby the advantages
of public ownership might be secured *o
the people without the dangers of cen-
tralization. This system cont.emplnt.es
Federal ownership or the trunk lines only
and the ownership of local lines by the
several States. I further expressed it as
my opinion that the railroads themselves
were responsible for the growth of tho
sentiment in favor of public ownership
and said that while I believed that the
rate bill recently enacted should be given
a fair trial, we might expect to see the
railroads still more active in politics un-
less our experience with them differed
with the experience we had with fran-
chise holding corporations.
"This statement of my views has been
assailed by some j h an effort to fo**ce
the views upon tie Democratic party
and by some as an announcement of,an
intention to insist upon tie incorpora-
tion of .t pes? views in he r.ext Demo-
cratic National platform.
"Let me answer these two charges. I
have tried to make it Clear that I ex-
pressed my own opinion and T have never
sought to" compel the acceptance of my
opinion by anyone else. Preserving tho
right to do my own thinking, I respect
the right of everyone else to do his think-
ing. 1 have too much respect for the
rights of others to ask them to accept
my views that 1 may entertain unless
those views commend themselves to
others, and I have too much confidence
in my own party to think that any con-
siderable number of Democrats would
acknowledge my right to do their think-
ing for them, even if I were undemo-
cratic enough to assert such a right. As
to platforms, 1 have contended always
that they should be made by the voters.
I have in my speeches and through my
paper insited that the platform should
bo the expression of the wishes of the
voters of the party and not be the arbi-
trary production of one man or a few
Left V> the Voters.
"If you ask me whether the question
of Government ownership will be an
issue in the campaign of 1908, I answer I
do not know. If you ask me whether it
ought to lie in the platform 1 reply, I
cannot tell until I know what the Demo-
cratic voters thing upon the subject. If
the Democrats think the next platform
should contain a plank in favor of Gov-
ernment ownership, then the plank ought
to tie included. If the Democrats think
it ought not to contain such a plank
then such a plank ought not to be in-
cluded. It rests with the party to make
the platform and individuals can only
"T have spoken for myself and for my-
self only, and I did not know how tho
suggestion would be received. I am pre-
pared to confess to you that it has been
received more favorably than I expected.
It has not been treated as harshly as I
thought possibly it would bo treated.
That it would be denounced bitterly by
some I fully expected; that it would be
gravely discussed by others, I hoped.
"There is this, however, that I do ex-
pect to see Democrats who oppose
Government ownership will accomplish
their declaration against it with the
assertion that they will favor Govern-
ment ownership whenever they are con-
vinced that the country must choose be-
tween Government ownership of the
railroads and railroad ownership. I can-
not conceive how a Democrat can an-
nounce himself as opposed to Govern-
ment ownership, no matter to what ex-
tern the railroads carry their interfer-
ence with politics and their corruption
"1 think I may also reasonably expect
that Democrats who oppose Government
ownership will say that if Government
ownership must come, they prefer a sys-
tem whereby the State may be preserved
and the centralizing influence be reduced
to a minimum. Such a plan I have pro-
posed. and I have proposed it because I
want the people to consider it and not
be driven to the Federal ownership of
all railways as the only alternative to
"The duel plan of Federal ownership of
trunk lines and State ownership of local
lines not only preserves the State and
even strengthens its position, but it per-
mits the gradual adoption of Government
ownership as the people of different sec-
tions are ready to adopt it.
"1 have been slow in reaching this posi-
tion, and I can therefore be patient with
those who now stand where I stood for
years, urging strict regulation. 1 still
advocate strict regulation and shall re-
joice if experience proves that the regu-
lation can be made effective. I wiU go
farther than that and say that I believe
we can- have more efficient regulation
under a Democratic administration with
a Democratic Senate and House than we
are likely to have under a Republican
administration with a Republican Senate
and House, and yet I would not be
honest with you if 1 did not frankly
admit that observation has convinced me
that no such efficient regulation is pos-
sible and that Government ownership can
be undertaken on the plan outlined with
less danger to the country than is in-
volved in private ownership as we have
had it or as we are likely to have it.
"I have been brought to regard public
ownership as the ultimate remedy by
railroad history, which is as familiar to
you as to me. Among the reasons that
have led me to believe that we must, In
the end, look for Government ownership
for relief, I shall mention two or three.
"First, and foremost, is the corrupting
Influence of the railroad in politics. There
is not a State in the Union that has not
felt this influence to a greater or less
extent. The railroads have Insisted upon
controlling Legislatures. They have in-
sisted upon naming executives; they have
insisted upon controlling the nomination
and appointment of Judges; they have
endeavored to put their representatives
on tax boards that they might escape
just taxation; they have watered their
stock, raised their rates and enjoined the
States whenever they have attempted to
regulate the rates. They have obstructed
legislation when hostile to them, and
advanced by secret means legislation
favorable to them.
"The railroad influence has been strong
enough to keep tho Republican party
from adopting any platform declaration
in favor of rate regulation. When the
President, following the Democratic plat-
form, insisted upon regulation, he wan
met with the opposition of the railroads
and every point gained in favor of the
people was gained after a strenuous
"The bill was improved by an amend-
ment proposed by Senator Stone of Mis-
souri, restoring * the criminal penalty
which had been taken out of the Inter-
state Commerce law by the Elklns law.
This same amendment has been placed
in substance, In the House bill by Con-
gressman James of Kentucky and has
been defeated by Republican votes.
Improved the Bill.
"The bill was further improved by an
amendment proposed by Senator Culber-
son of Texas, forbidding the use of
passes, and it would have been Mill fur-
ther improved by the amendment pro-
posed by Senator Bailey of Texas, limit-
ing the court review, but the railroad in-
fluence was strong enough to defeat this
"I have no idea that the railroads are
going to permit regulation without a
struggle, and l fear that their Influence
will be strong enough to cause very much
delay if it iloes not entirely defeat re-
medial legislation. You. in this State,
know something of the railroad.
"When I visited the State and spoke
for Mr. Goebel I heard him charge upon
every platform that the railroads were
spending large sums in opposition to his
election, nnd 1 have always believed that
tho railroad influence was largely respon-
sible for the assassination of that bravo
defender of the rights of the people.
"Another reason which has led me to
favor Government ownership is the fact
that the people are annually plundered of
an enormous sum by extortionate rates;
that places are discriminated against and
individuals driven out of business by
favoritism shown by the railroads. You
say that all these things can be corrected
without interference with private owner-
ship. I shall be glad if experience proves
that they can be, but I no longer hepe
"President Roosevelt, although be has
expressed himself against Government
ownership, has said that only successful
regulation can-prevent Government own-
ership. Js there any Democrat who is not
willing to go as far as President Roose-
velt and admit the necessity of Govern-
ment ownership in case the people are
convinced of the failure of regulation? I
cannot believe it.
"Then, while we attempt to make regu-
lation effective, while we endeavor to
make the experiment under the most
favorable conditions, namely, with the
Democratic party in power, let us not
hesitate to inform the railroads that they
must keep out of politics; that they must
keep their hands off of legislation; that
they must abstain from interfering with
the party machinery and warn them that
they can only maintain their private con-
trol" of the railroads by accepting such
regulation as the people may see fit to
apply in their own Interest and for their
own protection. Without this threat, our
cause will be hopeless, ft remains to be
seen whether, with this threat, we shall
be able to secure justice to the shippers,
to the traveling public and to the tax-

FORAKER SPEAKS IN
DAYTON, Ohio, Sept. 12.—When Tem-
porary Chairman Merrick called the Re-
publican State Convention to order to-
day there was general anticipation of a
warm session. Although the question of
the State executive chairmanship had
been settled at last night's meeting, the
new State central committee of the anti-
Dick forces was not entirely ready to
admit defeat and a continuation of the
contest on the floor of the convention in
some form was looked for by the dele-
gates and spectators. Tho action on the
resolution of the committee at the night
session was generally known, but it was
not known what form the expected sur-

on for half an hour Mr. Hearst him-
self tried to stay the tumult with out-
stretched arms. He was finally suc-
cessful. He then spoke briefly, saying:
"I am honored to have been nominat-
ed by this convention. I am proud to
run on this platform. I am devoted
heart and soul to the principles ex-
pressed in every line of it.
"I have said that my program is not
socialism or radicalism, or extreme of
any kind. It is simply Americanism. If
this platform is not Americanism, then
common honesty is no longer a measure
of American morals, [f this platform is
not Americanism, then a free ballot and
a fair count is no longer th* basis of our
American Government. If this platform
is not Americanism, then independence,
equality and opportunity have ceased to
be American ideals. Then Jefferson's
teachings have been forgotten and Lin-
coln's labor was in vain.

The event of today In Havana was tho
arrival of the United States protected
cruiser Denver. As the cruiser moved
up the harbor firing the usual salute
of twenty-one guns, which was respond-
ed to from the Cabanas fortress, the
countenanees of Americans showed
pleasure, while those of the Cubans ex-
pressed wonder and perplexity. Cuban
officials are unanimous that the visit

Commander Colwell said that his or-
ders to come to Havana were received
by wireless telegraph while the Denver
was steaming in Long Island Sound.
Immediately after the Denver anchored
Ensign Rlakely was sent ashore to the
American Legation to notify Charge
d'Affaires Sleeper of her arrival and that
she was at the Legation's service.
Asked as to the Denver's available
landing force in ease of necessity, Com-
mander Colwell replied that while she
carried no marines she had 150 sailors
and several field guns which can be put
ashore on fifteen minutes' notice.
There is a wide diversity of comment
with reference to the Denver's presence.
All, however, agree that American war-
ships are certain to remain in Cuban
ports until peace is not only completely
restored, but no definite understandings
are reached concerning the future. It is
generally conceded that if the insurgents'
program of pillage is fully carried out

Americans than can be afforded by the

The resumption of activities in the
field thus far have affected railroad
property considerably in Pinar del Rio
province, a Western >Railroad bridge at
Taeo Taco being burned. The bridge
over the Santa Clara River, which was
recently damaged by insurgents, is being
repealled, meanwhile being guarded by
Major Clews' rapid-fire guns. Railroad
communication with Western Pinar del
Rio province is now wholly cut off.
A railroad bridge on the line of th<->
Cuban Central, between Cruces and Las
Lajas, near the Trinidad sugar estates,
managed by O. B. St ill man of New York,
has been blown up. The manager of tnis
railroad reports that the insurgents are
attacking stations also. .
It is known that the Government re-
gards the situation in Santa Clara Prov-
ince as even more dangerous than in
Pinar del Rio, on account of the number
of insurgents in the former province,
who are now variously estimated at from
8000 to 12,000.
More fighting was reported today near
Consolacion d '1 Sur. Several minor
fights are reported this evening, two of
them mar Havana. At Luyana, Just
scuth of Havana Bay, 200 shots were ex-
changed between rural guards and a
band of iusurg 'its. The latter was dis-
persed. Near Punta Brava, west of Ha-
vana, there was a hot skirmish, the de-
tails of which have not yet been received.
In a fight today near Santa Clara City,
three insurgents were killed, ono was
wounded and seven captured.

An interested spectator at the hearing
was Repiesentative John Sharp Williams
' of Mississippi.
T. J. Freeman, general counsel of
the Texas & Pacific Railroad Company,
was the first witness.
He explained that the old system in
vogue, under which he said there was
no published export rate to the port of
export, but the lowest commission
water and rail rate through any port
from any point of the fixed rate. His
contention was that if his road filed the
inland proportion to the port of export
and added to that eacli day the water
rate to the foreign destination, the law
would be fully complied with. But ho
said in order to make this y>lan ef-
fective and to meet commercial condi-
tions the railroads should be allowed to
issue a through bill of lading from
original destination to the foreign point
Representative Williams inquired of tho
Commission if it was not their position
that carriers are compelled to publish a
rate to Liverpool, Hamburg or Havre,
because of the fact that ocean steamships
which form a part of the carrier lines are
not within the jurisdiction of the Com-
mission, and therefore the carriers are
not compelled to furnish the through rate
to foreign points.
Speaking for the Commission, Chair-
man Knapp said that they had held that
where there is a joint through rate estab-
lished between an international and rail
line and the ocean lines, the carriers may
file that entire through rate or may file
the inland proportion.
Mr. Williams remarked that he wanted
to have a proper understanding of the
attitude of the Commission on that ques-

FRISCO TO BUILD CUT OFF.
Engineers Surveying Lfne From Car-
rollton to Rock Island Roaci
Special Telegram to Tho Express.
DALLAS, Tex., Sept. 12.—For sometime
rumors have been circulated to the effect
that the Frisco Railroad intended to
build from Carrollton to Irving to make
a connection with the Rock Island in
order that the trains of the Frisco could
enter Dallas over the rails of tho Rock
That this rumor was woll founded was
demonstrated this morning when Mr.
Allen, right-of-way agent for the Frisco,
accompanied by several railroad con-
tractors and engineers, got off the Rock
Island train at Irving and started north
along the right-of-way which the Frisco
has secured from Carrolton to Irving.
From the fact that the right-of-way
agent of the Frisco and a number of con-
tractors are in the party it is taken to
mean that the active work on the con-
struction of the connection will soon bo
started. For several months the ltork
Island Railway people have been at work
putting their roadbed within the city
limits in first-class shape, and it is
understood that similar work has been
carried on all the way to Fort Worth.
This is also taken as another indication
that trains will soon be entering Dallas
over the rails of the Rock Island.
