IIf Idea on the Philippine Qaes
lion Very Popular.
Chicago, July 21. Four thousand
people crowded into the Auditorium to
night, despite the swelterimr hat. tn t.
tend the political meeting given under
ine auspices of the Chicaim-rilif,rnrm
democrats. It was, from first to last,
a silver meeting, an Atgeld meeting, an
anti-trust and anti-expansion meeting.
All of the speakers, save ex-Governor
stone, ol Missouri, who was ill, talked
in favor of 16 to 1 and aeainst the vr
in the Philippine islands. Mr. Bryan
oegan nis speech as follows :
in speaainir in Uhicano. I am .
barrassed by the fact that the advocates
oi the Uhicago platform are divided into
two camps. It is not my business to es
ALI!t- - . . .
uuii8ii a secrete service m order to as
certain the democrats which are most
devoted to the principles set forth in the
party creed. All Clncaira platform dem
ocrats 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 impress upon all democrats the
importance of the triumph of democratic
principles that all local difference will
De lost Bight of in the determination to
restore the government to the founda
tions laid by the fathers."
Talking up the money question. Mr
Bryan argued that the sendingof a mon
etary commission to Europe was an ac
knowledgment that the erold standard
was unsatisfactory; declared that bi-
metalism could be secured only throueh
independent action, and said:
'If the increased production of cold in
the Klondike and the importation of
gold from Europe have increased the
volume of money and improved times,
it is evident that more money makes
better times, and times could be still
further improved, and the improve
ment made permanent, by the restora
tion of bimetalism, which would make
silver as well as gold available for coin
age. ii it was more difficult to main
tain the parity between gold and silver
when the supply of silver was increasing
u must now be easier to maintain the
parity since the supply of gold is in
On the trust question, I suggest the
following propositions for your consider
auon: rarst, the trust is a menace to
the welfare of the people of the United
States because it creates a monopoly and
gives to the few in control of the monop
oiy almost unlimited power over the
lives and happiness of consumers, em
ployes and producers of raw material ;
second, the president appoints the at
torney-general, and can, if he desires,
secure an attorney-general who will en
force the anti-trust laws ; third, the at
torney-general can recommend sufficient
laws, if present laws are insufficient;
fourth, the attorney-general can recom
mend an amendment to the constitu
tion, if the present constitution makon
it impossible to extinguish the trusts:
fifth, the republican party is powerless
to extinguish the trusts so Ion? an
1. L . . . . .
iae trusts iurnish the money to con
tinue the republican party in power.
Jn the Philippine question, certain
fundamental principles are involved :
tirst There are but twoscources of
government force and consent. The
monarchies are founded upon force : re-
publics upon consent.
Second The Declaratiun of Inl-
pendence asserts that all fust covprn.
ments derive their powers from the con
Bent of the governed.
"Third If the Decla-ation of I.hIr-
pendence is correct, we cannot rightful
ly acquire title to the Philippine islands
Dy conquest or by purchase from an
alien monarch to whose rebellious sub
jects we ourselves furnished arms.
"Fourth If the Filipinos are and of
right ought to be free, they should be
immediately assured of our nation's in
tention to give them independence as
soon as a stable government can be es
tablished. "Fifth The Filipinos having fallen
into our hands bv accident nf n,a
should be dealt with according to Amer
ican principles and not only be given in
