WEAVER'S GREATEST SPEECH
Nominating Bryan Sot the Whole
St. Louis, July 25.
Thomas K. Wat son, of Georgia, wl o
was u member of tlio fifty-first con
gress and wlio In the fifty-second and
fifty-third congresses unsuccessfully
contested Col. Hlnck'sscat wasnoml-
niitcd for vice-president by the popu
list convention, on the first ballot,
shortly after midnight.
Thero were live other candidates viz:
Scwall, Mageo, of Virginia, Mlinius of
Tennessee, Congressman Skinner of
North Carolina, and Col. Hurkcttof
The nomination was mado unani
mous before the result of the roll cull
was an nou need.
Bryan sent word to his supporters
that ho would not accept the nomina
tion at the hands of the. convention
undor theso circumstances. Ho will
stand loyally by his running mate.
The opposition to Scwall In the
Populist convention practically
swamped tho Bryan forces at the day
session of the convention, by making
It Impossible to prevent a division of
tho Chicago ticket. The leaders wero
powerless to check tho strong feeling
agalnstttlip shipbuilder and banker,
They had carried tho day In the com
mittee on resolutions, in framing a
comparatively moderate' platform,
which 'they afterwards got through
the convention with case. Their
strategy, was skillfully displayed nt
other polntB. But tho Intense under
current of tho feeling against Scwall
was fatal to them.
It was the aunkenditch, unmarked
upon tho battle Held which, clutching
with Its muddy fingers nt the wheels
of Ills artillery, bore down Napoleon
and his eagles at Waterloo. Today
the ditch was In open view. From
the beginning It was gaped like a
chasm athwart the path of tho Bryan,
managers. In vain they attempted to
bridge It. Moreover, today for the
first tlmo the middle-of-the-road clo
ment displayed n generalship worthy
of the name. Recognizing the fact
that mil hope of defeating Bryan's
nomination wqs. lost, they concentred
all tholr efforts against Scwall. They
did more; they devised a cunning
soheino by which tho convention was
forced to nomlnato tho ylce-prcsldcnt
before the president. It was an un
precedented thing and It served to
mass the votes In favor of thoropullst
candldato for vice-president, and un
cover them In advance, In the fear
that If Bryan was nominated tho en
thuslam might break down tho oppo
sition to tho wall and stampede n ma
jority of the votes for thoNebraskan's
"yijen, tho Pppujlst convcntlpti ret
cgnveped thlsniorping, Chairman Al
len announced that the first thing In
order was tho selection of members of
tho national committee and commit
tees to notify tho candidates for presi
dent and vice president. Tho chair
man then called for the nomlnutlon
Children Cry for
for president. General Weaver foim
ally placed Bryan In nomlnatlui.
When General Weaver concluded by
naming "that splendid young states
man, William J. Bryan," the conven
tion broke loose. Cheer followed cheer.
Delegates Jumped onto their chalis,
llags, handkerchiefs, bills, state guid
ons were waved In wild confusion.
Through the side entrance, four? men
carried a 'big yellow cross, four by
eight feet In slzo, surmounted by a
crown of thorns. On It were Inscribed
the eloquent words, with which "Bryan
closed his brilliant speech nt Chicago.
A big crayon portrait of tUc Nebraska
statesman was also carried Into the
The cross, ban ncr? and state gllldons
were rallied frantically about It.
Then with tho cross 'lending the way
they were carried to the stage, where
for five minutes they danced In con
fusion, while tho delegates howled
with delight. As the procession
pushed tho Texas delegation a free
light-almost occurred. Men struggled
and fought to bar the passu go but tho
way watt finally cleared. While the
demonstration was at Its hclghtjthou
sands of copies of tho "Bryan silver
March" wero Hung high In tho air
and fell In clouds on tho frantic dele
gates. Each verso concluded with
"Chink, chink, chink, no crown of
thorns for lulwr's brow. j

gold for mankind now.1' I

He paid i) high tribute to Tom Wat
son, also to Bryan. While Simpson
was talking, tlio Texas delegation
withdrew n body and absolute quiet
prevailed for tho first tlmo today.
Louisiana yielded to Colorado, Mrs.
Mlnorva Roberts, then seconded Bry
an's nomination. Her brief speech
was one of tho most eloquent delivered
In tho convention.

ton, of Illinois, In nomination. E.
Geary Brown, of Massachusetts, de
clared tho Issue of tho coming cam

Donnelly announced on tlio floor
that a telegram had been received
from Bryan absolutely declining to
accept tho nomination,
Chairman Allen says there has been
rumors at a fictitious telegram of somo
sort, but ho had not seen it.
In lhat midnight discussion between liru.
tut and Caul us concerning the contemplated
battle at Phllliptj, llrutus urged that their
cause was rife, their legions brimful! at the
height and ready to decline. Said hoi
"Thero is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to for
tune; Omitted, all their voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and miseries;
And then, in djatr.ntlc climax he exclaimed!
'On such a full sea are we now afloat, and, wp
Take the current when it s:ives,
Or lose our ventures."
For twenty vears we have been pleading
with the people to espouse the sacted cause
which is at stake in ibis campaign, We have
constantly urged through good and through
eyil report that our principles were wore im
portant than party associations! were above
all considerations of private fortunoorthe
tviiv and feverish ambitioni of men. We
have thus far suited our action to our words
made through five presidential campaigns
stretching from 1876 to 1891 correctly estl.

events have sustained every specification in
your indictment against them. Millions of
honest men within old party ranks were de

Itut not a s'ngle one of your pickets lias been
caught napping or been liken by surprise To
your devoted cfloits is largc'y due the revival
of economic learning in litis country which
lias enabled the Democratic party to assume
the present admirable attitude. Your ttotk
now promises much to mankind and Is aliout
to break forth in complete victory for the in
dustrial masses Though oft repulsed by the
multitude whom we would have liberated
though crucified in return for our kindness,
yet thr ugh It all we have steadily confided
In the righteousness of our cause nnd the final
good ens.e of tlio people. We still believe
lliat this nation ha3n mUsion to perfrm
tthlcli bad men vsill not lie petmlttcd to de
stroy, and recent events indicate that the
nineteenth century is not, after all, to close
with the filends of fretdom despondent In the
This country has recently witnessed a new
I'ciittco.-t and received another baptism of
fire. The recent convention at Chicago
sounded n bugle-call fnr union which can
iieillici be mlsiinilcrnoi il nor go uuhcciUd.
In patriotic Attcrancc mid actio.) it swept
uway all middle ground and opened the way
to a formidable organic alliance. They not
only made union possible, than heaven, tln-y
have rendered it inevitable. From the very
beginning of our oiganization days we made
party feeling subordinate to principle. We
will not here reverse ourselves nnd refuse to
accept victory now so easily within our reach,
Wc will not refuse the nroflcreti assistance of
nt least thiee millions ficc silver Republicans
simply becauso they have shown the i;ood
sense to come with au rrganiml mm) lull)
equulnped and army corps, flic held ol
glory k open to all competitors who arc fight
ing lor the same principle. The Populists
have already shown their prowess in many
engagements during 20 years of struggle. II
our allies can strike sturdier blows at
i.lulocracy than e can; if they can scale the
battlements of the gold power gallantly than
our old veterans and are able to plant their
colors one foot nearer the citadel of the
enemy than wc can ourselves, let every l'opu
list cheer and support them tit their heroic
work. We will nil match under the tume
flag, keep step to the samo music, face the
same foo, share in and shout over
the same triumph, We cannot lie
mistaken concerning the real issue
involved in the stiugglo of the piercnt year.
It is between the gold standatd, gold bonds
and bank cutrency on the one liiinii, nnd the
bimetallic standard, no bonds, and govern
ment currenoy on the other. The people are
asked to choose between enforced Idleness,
destitution, debt, bankruptcy and despair on
the one side, and the open door of opportu
nity under just laws and normal conditions on
the other, the situation presents the might
iest civic question thai ever convulsed a civ
ilized nation. The conflict can neither be
postponed nor Avoided. In tho name of the
suffering people I affirm that this is no time
for dissension uor party divisions. The su
preme hour for action has arrived. If we
would be victorious we mUBt mako common
causo with the hetoic men who dominated the
Chicago convention. No other courie is
either prudent or desirable. Wo are not
asked to abandon our party, nor would It lie
wise to uo so. 11 it is to te preserved it will,
In my judgment, be compelled, to lhat course
wntcn 1 am auoui to indicate, me silver
Democrats have lined up at an organisation;
now let the Populists, free sliver Republicans
the American bilver Party do likewise. Form
an embattled square-impenetrable to the as
saults of the confederated gold power. After
due consideration in which I have fully can
vassed every possible phase of the subject. I
have failed to find a single good reason to
justify us in placing a third ticket In the
field. The exigencies ol tho hour impera
tively demand that there shall be but one. I
would not endorse the distinguished gentle
man named at Chicago. I would nominate
thent outright and make them our own, and
then share justly and rightfully in their elec
tion. The situation is a striking verification
ol the old adage that "the patli of duty Is
the path of safety," Take this courso and all
opposition will practically Hlisappcar in the
southern and western states, and we can then
turn our attention to other parts of the field.
Take any other and you endanger the entire
situation and strengthen the arm of our com
mon adversary. If you nllow the present
happy juncture to pass, all the heroic work
of 20 years will be thrown to the winds. Our
guiding hand will disappear in the moment
ous conflict just when It should bo stretched
forth to steady the ark of our covenant. Wo
would prove to the world that we are devoid
of capacity to grasp the great opportunities,
and lacking in strength to grapple with prod
igious emergencies. The people have a gal
lant champion in the field who is leading a
revolt against tho plutocracy ol Christendom,
Kvejy oppressor, every plutocrat in two hem
ispheres has turned his guns upon him.
The subsidized organs have openly pro
claimed lhat he must be ciushed by any
meant at whatever cont, '1 he confederated
monopolies have lain aside their parties and
their politics and are marching in hot haste
against him.. 1-et ui signal to hint to hold
the fort lhat we are coming, and then
hasten to his relief.
Gentlemen, I want to say to you
in all earnestness, that assailed at is this gal
lant knight by the sleuth hounds of the
money power of the woild, you may deliber
ate here as long as you plea-e, but you can.
uot prevent the people from rushing to the
support of their recognized defender ami
leader. If you will not say the word they
will break over all testratnt and go them
selves, leaders or no leaders, and may God
bless them for so doing.
Therefore, in obedience to my hleliest re
gard to duty, with solemn conviction that I
am tight, I plicc in nomination for the presi
dency of tbo United States a distinguished
gentleman, who, let it be remembered, has
already been three timet endorsed by the
Populist party of his own state one? for rep
