he had known Mr. Bryan from his boy

Mr. Bryan was received with deafening
I applause. He began by referring to Mr
! Wilson In most rompltmentary terms. He
! hod known Mr. Wilson In Congress and
' he had never believed that so kind and
loving n man could Indorse a war of con
quest. Mr. Bryan expressed hi* pleas
ure at being able to address an assem
blage of farmers. He wanted to knot*
how any farmer could be a Republican.
It was easy, he said, to understand how
the head of a trust or an army contractor
i could be a member of that party, but as
! for the farmers, they were not trying to
get their hands In other* pocket* and lo
! keep others' hand* oul of their pockets.

Here Mr Bryan related the current re
ports. concerning his oat crop, claiming
that the exaggeration In this matter was
a specimen of the fallacy of the report In
the East concerning the proi>crous con
dition of the agricultural classes.
''They always exaggerate the possibili
ties of good crops.' he said, "and never

he continued, "while n bad crop Is taken

that the Republican party controls the

were, there would be a monopoly on rain;
the price would go up."
The ITnanelsl ttacstlon.
Mr. Bryan then took up the discussion
of the financial question to show that
more money was especially necessary io
the farmer. Mr Brvan said:
"What doe* the Republican party do

raising the prices of what he has lo sell?
You Itre told now that you have more
money than you had In lkS I want you

He made only two speeches during tha

the national candidate with enthusiasm
and both speeches were vigorously ap

exceptional In else.
Deer Pork was reached late In the aft

Mr. Brynn I* the guest of Col. MoOraw,
and the understanding before his coming
was that he should have entire quiet and
rest while here.
The Keyser me-tlng began gt S o'clock

unprotected by shade trees The speakers
cjpled a covered stand but the crowd
stood In open sunshine. Hot and disagree
able as the w>*'her was. all stood patient

A Government for All.
"I want this government to remain
such that the son of every cltlaen ran as

In politics. I want It so that you will not
ask who a man's father was. whether he

then 1 will have no fear for my children

A Party of the Few.
Mr Bryan then arraigned the Republi

and that It* legislation gives a benefit to

the many. He believed that throughout
