ton of Georgia the' people s party candi-
date for president and Thomas B. Tib-
bies of Nebraska tbe candidate for vlo
president were formally notified ot their
nomination here Ku lght at Cooper Union.
The big hall waa crowded when at
o'clock the two candidates accompa-
nied by Fred O. Bculton ot Brooklyn
chairman of th meeUng appeared on
the platform. There waa much cheer-
log. Chairman Boulton at once introduced
Judge Samuel W. Williams ot Indiana
who mad th speech notifying tne can-
didates ot their selection. In addressing
Mr. Watson Mr. Williams said that the
convention that nominated him waa
made up of unselfish patriots who at-
tended and participated In Its delibera-
tions solely through a high sense) of
duty. The purpose of the convention
he continued was to take one more step
In the evolution of progress which to
finally to bring us to that ideal condi-
tion ot society where tbe laborer shall
receive full fruits of all his labor and
an Injury to on shall be th concern ot
all. Th work of the hour waa not to
trim a sail ot expediency to catch a
paselng popular breese though It be ot
transient approval but rather to pro-
claim and again declare m plain and
eonclee language the principles and
promisee ot the people's party aa first
laid down at Omaha in 18a and subse-
quently reaffirmed In 18M and 1300
It waa understood then that whoever
th nomine he must be a man to whom
politics was a matter ot conscience and
who believed fully in the tenets ot pop-
ulists who subscribed to th doctrine
of the brotherhood of man and the fath-
erhood of Almighty God; who stood able
and willing to defend against any and
all comers e.icb and every plank in our
platform and who. If elected president
of the United States would have tbe
broadness of mind . th goodness of
heart th firmness ot character th
knowledge of men and affairs to so ad-
minister the duties of that big office as
to bring the best possible degde of
peace harmony and happiness fo the
We confidently Invite the country to say
whether or not the convention fulfilled
the requirements. We know your seal
for and fidelity to our party and Its
principles during all the years of I la
history. We realise with pride that you
stand with Jefferson and Lincoln with
Peter Cooper and Henry George with
Polk and with Donnelly in niacins the
man above the dollar.
Mr. Watson's Speech.
When Mr. Watson rose to speak the
cheering continued nearly four minutes.
Chairman Boulton introduced him in a
half doaen words simply referring to htm
as the candidate of the people's party.
After a" formal notice that be would
soon prepare a formal letter ot accept-
ance. Mr. Watson gave up a great por-
tion of his address to a discussion of the
democratic and republican platforms and
the candidacy of Judge Parker.' lie re-
ferred to the democratic candidate's gold
telegram us follows:
"surrounded by the Wall street mag
nates who had financed bis campagln tor
two years judge barker bided bis time
till the perils ol the two-lhlrae rule were
passed and when it was too late for
the convention to retract for even the
democratic bosses require more than fif-
teen minutes to turn complete around in
be crauks the Wall street whip over the
beada of his leaders and with prompt
obedience me great democratic legions
were made to furl their Hag and reverse
their line of march."
At this point the speaker said he would
not venture to say a word against Mr.
Parker's character "for I believe him to
be an eminently worthy man."
Of President Roosevelt Mr. Watson
"1 have no words of abut for Theo-
dore Roosevelt. I believe him to be a
brave honest conscientious man and
5lv him full credit for having a splen-
td courage of conviction but Inasmuch
as he stands for those government prin-
ciples which in my Judgment are hur-
rying this republic to a sordid despotism
ot wealth I will combat him' and hie
principles as long as there la a bream
In my body."
Answering a set of questions as to why
he consumed more time discussing ths
democrats than in speaking of ths re-
publicans the populist leader spoke thus:
"It is sn easier and quicker Job to
strike my opponent right between the
eyes than It Is to tear off the mask of a
pretended friend and show him to be the
hypocrite that he Is."
The People Not Satisfied.
The speaker opened with a statement
that there never was a time when the
plain people of America were satisfied
with the conditions sxisting In this coun-
try. Deep down in their hearts he said
"the maasea of the people feel that the
reins of power are slipping out of their
hands. In spite of all that can be done
by a partisan press the fact can not
be concealed from the eyes of ths average
cttisen that vast preponderance of all
the wealth produced In this land Is trans-
ferred by legalised robbery Into the
hands of a few; that the courts are run
in the Interest of the few; that the law-
making power is manipulated by the few
and that while both the old political
parties pretend to devote themselves to
the interests of the common people they
are both financed and dominated bjr
"Do you need proof that the maseee are
ready to rush to the support of a leader
wno is brave enougn to cnaiienge tne
Hrht of corporations to rule this land?
See bow they rallied to W. R. Hearst.
"Tonight fellow cltlxens I ask you
which is the party and who Is the can
didate that proclaims the principles of
Thomas Jefferson and goes forth to fight
for the great mass of the American Peo-
ple? "I don't believe that 1.500008 of people
who followed W J. Bryan with cheers
on thtlr lips and warm conviction In their
hearts can now b delivered like cattle
to the Clevelandltes who knifed th ticket
or bolted In K; I believe that the great
majority that voted for Bryan are men
of convictions; 1 can not but hope they
will realise that I am fighting their bat-
tle for them.
"It seems to me to be the most ainaa-
lng piece of effrontery for the demo-
cratic party to go before the American
people and proclaim that for years they
have been wrong and the republicans
hsve been light snd at the earn time
demand that the crow which has been
