MR. BRYAN IS RIGHT"
Rockford welcomes one of the
most distinguished citizens in Amer
ica today. 1Lr
Three times a candidate for presi
dent, evangelist of democracy, of
temperance and right living, Mr
Bryan stands before the people the
real 'peerless leader," in the things
for which he stands. In 1896, when
Bryan rose from political obscurity
to national fame in a single hour
this country was waiting for a cru
sader and Bryan took up the torch.
Whether Bryan's views about free
silver were sound or whether his
ideas about its coinage were prac
ticable are closed subjects now. The
thing which Bryan did in that mem
orable campaign is probably of far
greater consequence than his pro
gram for monetary reform. What
he really did is often lost sight of
in the maze of abuse and discord
which followed his nomination. He
captured the control of the Demo
cratic party in the interest of the
great west and broke the back of
eastern control. Bryan raisnri rhn
voice of the new west with its grow
ing pains and struggles for a place
in the sun, and, in so doing, gave
liberal democracy an inning which
has had its influence upon both nf
the old parties. From 1896 dates
the great liberal wave which swept
over this country. Roosevelt broke
up the Republican party in 1912 in
about the same way that Bryan
broke up the Democratic party in
Bryan's ability as a crusader, his
dogmatic stand for doing right by
rule and his facility for presenting
the understandable moral phases of
American life, have made him a con
spicuous and enduring national
Bryan's power over men is tre
mendous. Only those who have
seen Bryan in action, in a national
political convention where the ad
vocate must win his case before
thousands, and meet the brunt of in
telligent and seasoned opposition, can
appreciate his power. Bryan defeated
Parker in the St. Louis convention,
alone and unaided, after the Parker
faction had captured the numerical
strength of the convention. He so
"confused the resolutions committee
that it failed to make itself clear on
the money question and necessitated
the sending of that memorable tele
gram "from Esopus," which declared
that the gold standard was "irrevo
cably established." Parker was not
only defeated but overwhelmingly so.
Bryan nominated Wilson, which
by those who admire Wilson, will
ever be regarded as the greatest act
of his career. Bryan could have
nominated someone else. His allegi
ance to Wilson was one of principle,
certainly not of affiliation through
organization for the men were as
far apart as the poles in everything
save that both were fired by the lib
eral spirit of democracy. Bryan
had seen the Republican break at
Ohicaco and sensed the need for a
progressive candidate. He asked Wil
son, Underwood, Clark and Harmon
to state their views. Wilson alone
came clean. Wilson replied: "Mr.
Bryan is right. The convention is a
nrntrrooaivA n.nnvention and should
have a progressive chairman." That
telegram gave Wilson the nomina
tion, the election and made him one
of the characters in the world s his
tory. That was Bryan's contribution
to humanity and the democracy of the
world. That will be written in the
Books of the Ages. Possibly we of
this time should not be expected to
grasp its full portent. That will be
for the unprejudiced historian.
But it is sufficient now to recall
that Woodrow Wilson once wired
that "Mr. Bryan is right and
whether we all agree with Mr. Bryan
in all the things he encourages us
to believe, thnf .,.,.. i.
