BRYAN RAPS TUFT
Addresses Great Audience at
Labor Day Celebration
TAKES OPPONENT TO TASK
Asnnn Republican' Criticism of
Denver Platform Plank Charge
Him With Being Avowed En
emy of Jury System.
CHICAGO Spt. 7. Organised labor to
day paid tribute to W. J. Bryan. Al
though It was Labor day. It aoon became
manifest that the workers had sur
rendered their privilege and made It
Bnan day. Within an hour after h s
arrival In the city the Democratic candi
date for President, standing on the bal
cony of the Auditorium Hotel, received
the plaudits of thousands of toilers, as
they marched by in the monster labor
parade. The air was rent with cheers
and the enthusiasm was unbounded.
Not infrequently the marchers halted be
fore the Presidential candidate's seat,
doffed their caps and gave three cheers
"For our next President." Many more
familiarly: addressed " him as "Bill" and
"William J." A mighty shout went up
when he reached- out his hands and
caught a clgarmaker's union badge which
one of that body threw to him from the
Delighted by Ovation.
The pleasure whteh-the ovation afforded
Mr Brvan was undisguised. He smiled
continually, bowed and clapped his hands,
always giving the women in the parade
an equal share of applause. 80 Insistent
for a speech was the crowd In front of
the hotel that Mr. Bryan yielded.
In the course of a brief address he paid
a tribute to labor and said he believed In
the observance of Labor day because he
thought "we all ought to strive to as
sist In dignifying It In every possible way
the honest toll upon which our Nation
But this was only one feature of the
visit' of the Democratic candidate. Mr.
Bryan was conducted to Forest Park,
several miles away, where he vs
scheduled to deliver a Labor day address.
There a multitude awaited his coming.
As he reared the park the word was
passed around, and he got another
ovation as he came In sight.
Delivers Speech Twice.
Without preliminaries. President John
Fltspatrlck.' of the Chicago Federation of
Labor. Introduced Mr. Bryan, who. be
cause of the Cheers he received, stood
for several minutes at the front of the
pavilion before he bfgan ' his speech on
the abuse of the Injunction In labor dis
putes. The speech was practically du
plicated at Brands Park, an hour after
ward, where the electrical workers were
From the moment the Presidential can
didate arrived here until he retired for
the night he was In charge of the labor
leaders. Every move of Mr. Bryan from
the railroad station until he had entered
the hotel, several blocks distant, was re
corded by a moving picture machine op
erated from an automobile which pre
ceded the Bryan carriage. The pictures,
it Is understood, will be used In the cam
paign in connection with the phono
graphic records of Mr. Bryan's speeches.
Bryan's Speech to Labor.
In part. Mr. Bryan said:
Thers are to question, however. Inti
mately ror.noted with the labor problem
upon which the Democratic and Republican
parti's do not asree. and I not only feol at
llbrty to discuss these, but. under the cir
cumiliiini. I have no tfeht to Isnore thenv
relates to the. laeua of Injunctions, and
tt'O other to contempt canes arising under
Injunctions. The Republican convention did
not deal candidly with the laboring man
on the subject of the writ of Injunction.
Secretary Taft has endeavored to amend his
platform In this respect and to make some
promises, which are not supported by his
platform, but Us promises offer nothing
jhstan!al In the way -or -reform; and are
not- binding on Republican Senators and
members. The Republican Congress has al
ready made a record on labor questions,
and the Republican party cannot escape
from that record.
Mr. Taffs speech may be considered as
bttidlng upon him, but the convention which
slected the Republican candidates indorsed
the Republican platform not Mr. Taft's
personal views. Th Republican platform,
while pretending to pledtte some modifica
tion of the law. contains an exception clause
which reiterates the very language of the
law Whether this exception clause was In
serted by accident or design, the effect Is
th same. It merely provides, in substance,
that restraining orders shall not Issue with
out notice except where such order can now
Issue without notice. The platform was a
triumph for those who have been opposing
the laboring man. and they have been boast-
Ins of their victory.
Challenges Taft to Criticise.
Th Democratic platform on this subject
copies the language ahlrh labor organixa
. tions submitted to the Republican and Dem
ocratic conventions. Mr. Taft. In his notifi
cation speech, objects to the language. He
charges that th antl-lnjunctlon plank was
loosely drawn," and framed for "the es
pecial purpose of rendering It susceptible
to on Interpretation by one set of men. and
a diametrically opposite Interpretation by
another." As Mr. Taft has had long ex
perience on the bench, and is therefore
skilled In th Interpretation of language, I
ask him to give u. If he can. two opposite
Interpretation of th language. That plank
demands that "all parties) to all judicial
proceedings shall b treated with rigid Im
partiality." Surely he cannot find two In
terpretations to th phrase "rigid Impar
tiality" Epeaktng of Industrial disputes, the plat
form declare that "Injunctions shall not
b Issued in any cases In which Injunctions
would not Issue if no Industrial dispute were
involved " How can that language b mis
construed or misinterpreted?
Upon th jury question Mr. Taft clearly
take Issue with us. He la thoroughly
aroused by what he regards as a menus
to the courts Here I his lament:
"Never In th history of the country has
there been such an insidious attack upon
th Judicial system as the proposal to In
terject a Jury trial between all orders of
th court mad after full hearing and the
nforcement of such orders.'
This would com under the head of "Im
portant." If true. But th fact la our
platform specifically declares that we favor
a measure "which passed th United Statea
Senate In 18. and which a Republican
Congress has ever since refused to enact,"
tc, providing for trial by Jury In cases of
Mr. Taft la not an unbiased judge whers
the Jury system Is under consideration. He
Is not only known aa the father of gov
ernment by Injunction, but he Is prejudiced
against th Jury system. Every man Is un
consciously Influenced by his environment,
and Mr Taft'a long ervlc upon th bench
bas led him to underrate th importance of
the Jury system.
Fropoaes "o Interference.
Th Democratic platform proposes no In
terference with the right of th Judge to
decide th cases of direct contempt con
tempt committed In the presence of the
court: neither la It proposed to interfere
with the right of the Judge to determine
th Dunishment for Indirect contempt. Alt
that Is sought Is the substitution of trial by
jury for trial by judge when the violation
of the court s decree must b established
wlille the laboring men have been the
first to complain of this denial of the right
: of trial by Jury In cases of Indlreot con
I tempt. It ought not to b considered a labor
(question. Th jury system Is so essential
to - th administration of Jgatlc that th
subject ought to appeal to all who make a
atudy of the science of government.
One of the great problems of today Is ta
secure an equltabl distribution of th pro
ceeds of toll.
Th labor question, tnoreiore. a 11 pre
sents Itself at this time. Is chiefly a ques
tion of distribution, and the legislation
asked for la legislation which will secure to
ach that to which hla services entitle him.
As legislation (s secured through th ballot,
very on should use th ballot to obtain
the legislation necessary- The Democratlo
platform presents the Ideal toward which
the Democratlo psrtr Is striving, namely.
Justice In th distribution of rewards.

BY LLOYD F. LONEROAN.
nrw YORK. Sent. 7. (Special. The
Independence League primaries have af
forded the Tammany Tiger a chance to
hv fun with the new party, ana me
indications are that Hearst will be vexed
at the conduct of various district ( delegations.
I-nrter a recent law the League elections
came under the supervision of the state,
and the primaries this week were under

all of which are eompeiiea 10 leirti imu
delegates to various conventions on the
regular primary days.
It was Thomas Gllleran who told Mur
phy how he could put a crimp In Che new
political organisation. -Gilleran was . a
Tammany district leader before he met
Hearst, and was made a League brigadler-

phy, "but they are still enutiea 10 voie
In the League primaries. If I can capture
these districts, my delegates will indorse
the Tammany Congressional, Senatorial
and Assembly candidates." ,
Sounds Good to Murphy.
This line of talk sounded good to Mur
phy, and he did not hesitate to say
so, whereat instructions , were Issued to
the Tammany Inspectors, which could be
summed up in these words:
"Be kind to Gilleran and his candi
dates." Murphy also talked the matter over
with Bird S. Coler, Augustus H-viland
and other former Hearst standbys in
Brooklyn. They promised to do all they
could to help, and expressed a belief that
the majority of the local conventions
would await Murphy's orders.

his name will appear in Its proper place
on the ballot, nestling close to the names
of the Hisgen electors.
"And if Hearst don't like it, he can
lump it," declares the militant Mr. Gil
leran." Prefer to Vote Straight.
Murphy figures that the League men
will not be able to help themselves, as
the average voter prefers to cast a
straight ballot. Therefore he believes the
Gllleran plan will help Tammany can
didates in a number of close districts,
and may bring about their election.
Murphy is Inclined to the opinion that,
if he captured the entire state conven
tion of the Leaguers, the Hearst men
would simply secure a place on the bal
lot by petition and that the possi
ble gains are entirely offset by the
Next year, however, it will be a differ

worth paying moner to capture the In
dependence League city convention, and
he Is already considering how best it
can bs done. If Murphy carries the
matter through to a finish there will be
some lively times at the Independence
League's 'city convention next year.
An active member of the League de
clares that the Murphy plan will be
"foolish. Miotic politics."
. "It cannot be made a success," he
asserted, "and even If Murphy beat us
In our primaries, where he has no right
to Intrude, what would be the result?
Why we would simply repudiate the ac

upright ticket by petition. Then nobody
would vote t.ie Murphy ticket, and he
would have all his troubu and gain
Of course. If Tammany carried the
convention, the ' Independence League
would be barred from the use of the
