STRONG SPEECH MADE BY HON.
CHAS. D. CARTER.
Replete With Wholesome Lessons of
Instruction to Organized Labor.
It Is Absolutely Imperative
That Labor Should Organizs.
One of tho principal speeches de-
livered hero Monday night on tho
occasion of the Labor day celebration
was mado by Ckas. D. Carter bo
ivftry of the Democratic campaign
cominlttcp. hi. Carter said In pa-t:
"I bcll-ve In the principle of Union
labor. 1 believe It Is necessary for
tho great masses of laboring people
to combine together for their mutual
good nnd wclfuro.
"In view of tho fnct that tbcro are
icing formed every day great combin-
ations of capital one of tho purposes
of which Is to rcd'u-.j the prlco paid
to wage earners. Tn view ..' this fa t
I say it Is absolutely Imperative that
tho laboring people -Ji'gunu.: Mid or-
guulzo well. You have n great work
liofi re you. Yu Siao a great duty
to perform. You have a U'.-idtiblo
purpose to accomplish and ;o:i n:utt
not bo unmindful of your duty and
"If I should be fortunate enough to
take any part In tho organization or
government of this new state what-
ever act 1 may do whatever voto I
may cast will always bo recorded on
tho sido of tho laboring man.
The groat laboring masses who
produco tho wealth arid help to pay
the taxes of country arc entit'ed to
jivst as much consideration nt the
km ds of our government us lbs cap-
italist or corporations.
"I hnvo no confidence In thot theoiy
of government which proposes! to leg-
islate to mako only tho rich and well
to do man prosperous which would
put plenty of bread on tho rich man's
table In order that a few more crumbs
would be brushed olf for the poor
man and that tho poor mnn should bo
satisfied with this kind of prosperity.
I favor tho Idea of government as
piuposcd by ono of our lllustrloii"
lenders that tho truo theory of iov-
oriimont Is to legislate to mrko the
poor man prosperous and when I say
the poor man 1 moan not only the
man that Is living from linud to
mouth but I ' also includo all tho
struggling musses who are working
and tolling from year to year to make
both ends meet to cducato their Ut-
ile fnmlllos and lay by something
for a rainy day.
"This theory of government which
appeal" to me Is to legislate to mako
thoso struggling masses prosperous
and that their prosperity will find
Its way up through every channel
that tho prosperity of overy class
rostti on the prosperity of tho massos
ami there can bo no general pros-
perity unloss tho great massos of la-
boring pooplo are prosporous..
"If I were a meinbor of any of
your Inbor Unions I would not allow
politics to bo Injected into my organ-
ization under any circumstances. Do-
causo If you do that will eventually
destroy tho purpose nnd strength of
our organization. Hut I would go
back to tho party of my political
faith or hotter still I would go back
to tho party which offers tho best
protection to Union labor and I would
endeavor to have that party espouse
and work for thoso things for which
Union labor stands and If tho party of
my former political faith did not of-
fer tho proper protection then I
would go to tho party that did offer
sufficient pi tection and I would glvo
the very best I had in mo for the suc-
cess of that inrty.
"I would tuko a hand In framing tho
politics of that party and then I would
show my sincerity and good faith by
helping that party to win.
"I would have that party declaro
for tho Initlntlvo and Referendum for
with tho I. and It. In forco then all
thn reforms which your Union stands
for would bo possible and without the
I and It. In forco few of tho reforms
for which you stand would bo prob-
able. The Initiative and Iloferendum
Is simply an application of tho plan of
tho peoplo's rulo and tho man who
opposes tho I nnd It. doj not !
1'iwt tho American pnoplo are capable
tl tut gov-r-.ment. I would hue my
party declare In favor of a reasonable .
and Just fellow servants' law In order
that the life and health of the em
ployee ling! . 1-r protected In what
ever capacity engaged. 1 would have
my party declaro In favor of a rail-
road coiiisv.Nsliiii law nm' for tie pii-
tcctlou of tho pooplo against the rapa-
city of the trusts and corporations. 1
would have my. party declare for ti
law establishing a bureau of labor
ar.d agrlculturo In order that thoso two
great departments might bo glvon the
'proper assistance and kept properly
ii.formed I would bavo my party do-
rmro In favor of n law for tho working
of convicts on public highways there-
by fostering and encouraging the- good
roads movement relieving tho peoplo
of n part of burdensome taxation and
eliminating convict labor from com-
petition with legitimate labor. 1
would have my party declaro for a
board of arbitration to adjust differ-
ences between employer nnd employco
nnd In favor of a law prohibiting child
labor in dangerous and unhealthy avo-
cations. I would hnvo my party de-
claro fr tho removal of restrictions
on tho salo of surplus Indian allot-
ments thereby giving the farmer an
opportunity to secure a home and tho
Indian a reasonable compensation for
his property if he hould desire to
sell It. I would have my party go on
record as favoring a working day a
maximum of which should bo eight
"As I said boforo bo back to tho
political party which affords you the
greatest amount of protection havo it
declar0 nnd work for 'tho reforms
tvhlch will be beneficial to your labor
Unions. I do not want to Inject poll-
tics Into this discission but will simply
Bay that I am a Democrat 1 havo look-
ed Into the Democratic record and
havo found that that party embodies
the principles which I think nro Just
and right mid which 1 think stands for
a Greater America.
"When I looked Into tho Democratic
record I tried to view It from an im-
partial standpoint to see if It stood
Tor the protection of nil claascri alike.
In making this investigation It wns
necemary for mo to look up tho party's
record on tho labor question; because
I know wo could not have a Greater
America unloss tho gre.V. stalwarts of
labor aro properly protected. I have
been warned not to Inject politic; Into
this discussion thoreforo I can only
say that I nm satisfied with tho ntti-
tudo of the Democratic pnity on this
subject. I havo told you that I Joined
th0 Democratic party because 1 believe
In Its principles and not on account of
the magnetism that tho word Democ-
racy hold 'for mo. There Is not such
a groat amount of significance in n
name. I havo not any great confidence
In any label except tho Union Labor
label and If ovor Doiuocracy should
eeaso to stand for the principles which
I think aro just and right I shall not
hesitate to sever my connection wttli
that party nnd cast my lot with an-
othor party which comes tho nearest
to the embodiment of my Ideas of
Jmtlco and good government."

Right of Republican Party
to Claim the Credit.
Chicago Sopt. I. Mr. Dryan was
met at tho station on Is arrival from
tho east today by a largo party of
oca I Democrats mode up of tho Iro-
quois and Jefferson clubs. Tho llrst
man to greet Mr. Dryan as ho step-
ped from tho trnln was Mayor Dunne
The entire party then posed for pho-
tographs In front of the train which
was placarded from end to end.
Mr. Ilryan's program for tho day
comprised an Informal reception at
the Auditorium hotel which lasted
through several hours of tho miming.
Shortly before noon ho was driven to
tho headquarters of tho Iroquois club
where ho was entertained at luncheon
and addrossea wcr0 uiadu hy President
John W. Kckart and by Mr. Dryan.
The latter spoke In part as follows:
''I was told In lCuropo that when f
returned i.omo I would find a great
rmny more pooplo frlondly to mo than
there had been nt soruo previous per-
od of my career. It was suggested that
absence n ade the heart grow fonder.
This wns pleasant In one way but
disagreeable In another for I could
net be absent always and If absence
made tho lienrt grow fonder llioro
might bo some danger in my return.
I was somewhat worried when I re-
ceived roports from various conven-
tions endorsements kind resolutions
and it looked for awhile ns If the pres-
idential nomination with all Its .trou-
bles and Its trials was about to bo
fc rre 1 on mo whether I would or not.
"In tne midst of my gloom I saw
an interview nttrlbutod to a prominent
Republican. He s.ild tlmt they lmd
been n llttlo senred hut that I was
coming homo soon nnd would com-
mence talking and then nil danger
would ho removed. 1 have breathed
easier slnco thon nnd I can Hay to
tho Republicans that If I do not kill
my chances hy talking u will not bo
Mr. Dryan thon amid much npplauso
advocated tho election of United
States senators by tho peoplo and
"1 tliink It Is tlnio to speak plainly
in regard to tho United States scnato
and in my liumlilo Judgment tho reas-
on reform has been delayed for a de-
cade or more Is becauso predatory
wealth has put corporation tools In
the senate and until this can bo reme-
died and the sonato brought Into har-
mony with Uio voters of this country
mere Is not much prospect of reform."
Mr. nryan contended that the Re-
publican pirty whllo In power had
not settled a slnglo Important ques-
tion. Ho declared tlmt tho prosperity
of tho country lind como in splto ot
the Republican party and not becauso
of anything it had done. On the trust
question i.o said:
"To tho oxtent that tho president
has gone I am glad but ho has not
gono far ounugli and ho has not been
aole to take Ills party with ltlm as
far as lie has gone."
Mr. Dryan declared nt tho cutset
that the omy platform from whlcu
a sucessful fight could bo mado against
tno trust was that a private monopoly
is ludefvnsli..e nnd Intolerable. A
"good trust" ho declared to bo out ot
tho question for the reason that God
novor mado man good enough to with-
stand the temptations that aro pre-
sented by a prlvato monopoly.
As a remedy for the trust prpost-
tion Mr. Dryan declarod that ho waa
In favor of shutting up In the state
that allowed Its Incorporation any
trust that oppresses tho people and
allowing It to operate In no other
stato. It would then bo In a position
to eat up the state that gavo St
birth and tlint state would thereafter
