Chicago, July 20—The Auditorium
mass meeting of Democrats tonight
was a magnificent success. Four thous-
and were present. Clarence 8. Darrow
presided. Following the speeches by
George Fred Williams of Massachusetts,
Congressman Lentz of Ohio, and others.
Darrow briefly introduced Bryan, who
was given au enthusiastic welcome.
Bryan began his speech as follows:
In speaking in Chicago I am em-
barrassed by the fact that the advo-
cates of the Chicago platform are di-
vided into two camps. It is not my
business to establish a secret service in
order to ascertain what Democrats are
the most devoted to the principles thht
are set forth in the party creed. All
Chicago platform Democrats look alike
to me, and instead of trying to drive
any professed believer in that platform
out of the party, my aim is to so im-
press upon all Democrats the impor-
tance of the triumph of Democratic
principles that ail local differences may
be lost sight of in a determination to
restore the government to the founda-
tions laid by our fathers. ”
Taking up the money question, Mr.
Bryan argued that the Bending of a
monetary commission to Europe has
been an acknowledgment that the gold
standard is unsatisfactory and declared
bimetallism could be secured only
through independent action, and said:
“If the increased production of gold
in the Klondike and the importation of
gold from Europe have increased the
volume of money and improved the
times, it is evident more money makes
better times, and times coaid be still
further improved and the improvement
made permanent by the restoration of
bimetallism, which would make silver
as well as gold available for coinage.
If it was more difficult to maintain the
parity between gold and silver when
the supply of silver was increasing, it
must now be easier to maintain the
parity since the supply of gold is in-
“On the trust question, I suggest the
following proposition for your consider-
"First—The trust is a menace to the
welfare of the people of the United
States because it creates monopoly and
gives to the few in control of monopoly
almost unlimited power over the lives
and happiness of the consumers, em-
ployes and producers of raw material.
“Second—The president appoints the
attorney general, and can, if he de-
sires, secure an attorney general who
will enforce the anti-trust laws,
“Third—The attorney ge eral can
recommend sufficient laws if the pre-
sent laws are insufficient.
“Fourth—The attorney general can
recommend an amendment to the con-
stitution if the present oonstitntion
makes it impossible to extinguish trusts.
“Fifth—The Republican party is
powerless to extinguish trusts so long
as the trusts furnish the money to con-
tinue the Republican party in power.
“In the Philippine question, certain
fundemental principles are involved.
“First—There are bat two sources of
government, force and consent, mon-
archies being founded upon force, re-
publics upon consent.
“Second—The Declaration of Inde-
pendence asserts that all governments
derive their just powers from the con-
sent of the governed.
' ‘Third—If the Declaration of Inde-
pendence is sound, we cannot rightful-
ly acquire title to the Philippine 1 -lands
by conquest or by the pnrcba- - from
an alien monarch to whose rebellious
subjects we ourselves furnished arms.
“Fourth—If the Filipinos are and of
right ought to be free, they should be
immediately assured of onr nation’s in-
tention to give them independence as
soon as a stable government can be es-
“Fifth—The Filipinos, having fallen
into our hands by accident of war,
should be dealt with according to Amer-
ican principles and not only be given
independence, but protected from out-
side interference while they work out
their own destiny.”
His declaration that he felt embar-
rassed about speaking in Chicago be-
cause of the split in the local Democra.
A Hove to Consolidate. All Free Silver
Chicago, July 20-At the meeting of
the Ohio Valley Bi-Metallic league this
afternoon, the first move for the consoli-
dation of the existing free silver clnbs
and organization into one big associa-
tion and the forming of other clnbs was
made. Nothing took place indicating a
bolt of the free silver element should
the national convention develop an un-
favorable sentiment, save in the open-
ing address of Judge Tarvin, president
of the league.
“We are for Bryan and 16 to 1,” said
he. “If there is anyone in the party
with different sentiments we don’t need
A committee composed of delegates
from each state represented at the meet-
ing was appointed to confer with the
national committee in regard to the
formation of a national silver organize
tion and to offer the aid of the league
In any efforts for the furtherance of the
cause of Bryan and bimetallism. Ad-
journment followed the appointment of
the committee and the latter sought an
audience with the national committee
