BRYAN'S GROWTH AND THE
To what main avenue ot communi
cation Wm. J. Ilryan is Indebted for
keeping his Ideas and himself so con
tinuously before the public furnishes
a source of not a little discussion as
people contemplate the wonderful
record of this man who has thrhed
Hearst has his chain of newspapers
which very thoroughly cover the
whole country. His campaigning Is
Incessant. Ho Is appealing to his
readers every day. Ilryan, of course,
has his Commoner, but that little
weekly does not account for bis abil
ity to carry on a successful campaign
against all the combined forces of
wealth Inside his party and wealth
generally that does not want him,
and would do an thing to bring
about his permanent political demise.
Mr. Drjan has been talking with
out ceasing since ho first went into
the field of Presidential politics; but
Tom Watson is as entertaining a
speaker and n much more powerful
writer and he has all but passed
A writer In Collier's Weekly gives
an explanation ot how Uryan has
kept his grip on the people, and, al
though the great popular support ho
has received cannot be credited to
one slnglo source, this writer's view
Is at once interesting and reasonable,
and at tho same time instructive:
"It Is estimated that 6,000,000
people heard Or) an during the cam
paign of 1896. Ot course, there Is
no way ot authenticating the figures,
and yet it is easy to see that they nro
possible, for Bryan spoke morning,
noon, and night, and everywhere the
train stopped between times. He al
most duplicated the teat in 1900
(and so did the vigorous candidate
for Vice President on tho opposing
ticket), so It is easy to see how he
has had his share ot public attention
during campaigns, but what has kept
him In the public cyo between-times?
"What has held Bryan close to tho
people's heart and head? The an
swer best worth considering is this:
th Lyceum and the Chautauqua, cs
peclally the Chautauqua, In the
great Middle West, which Is the
'backbone of Bryan's support, tho
Chautauqua Is an institution. There
are, approximately, six hundred or
more scattered through tho West,
nnd every season adds to their num
ber. Bryan Is the Chautauqua star,
par excellence, the headllner of thent
all, His voice Is big, his personality
Jb 'big, well-suited to large audito
riums and unconventional crowds. iio
can talk politics and not offend, for
be has a sense of humor and is will
ing to turn the laugh against himsolt
occasionally. He can talk ethics and
Jeay'e his audience exalted. The Re
publicans who come to laugh remain
to admire, the Democrats who come
to admire remain to worship, and all
of them lite up and shnke hands al
most prnerfully. Bryan meets many
of them personally. If the Demo
cratic County Committee Isn't there
to rocchc him, ho doesn't care. He
talks to the policeman on the corner
lor tho baggageman at the depot. He
I dodges no subject but one. That ono
" 'It's all right to talk personali
ties between friends,' says Mr. Bryan,
'but when I have talked of myself for
publication, I have been appalled at
tho number of "l's" nnd "me's" which
seem to have crept In.'
"But upon n public platform a man
must bo "personal." No matter how
Infrequent tho personal pronoun, It
is his olce which speaks, his eye
which flashes, his arm which gesticu
lates, his personality which domi
nates the scene. And Bryan talked
thus personally to 300,000 pcoplo
during the Chautauaua season of
1907. He has been delivering from
100 to ISO I.J ecu m nnd Chautauqua
uddi esses j early for a dozen years.
"Few people realize tho extent nnd
Influence ot the Chnutauquas and tho
.possibilities they nfford a public man
with a purpose. It Is doubtful whe
ther Mr. Bryan himself realizes his
Indebtedness to them. Comparative
ly few peoplo know anything about
the extent of the Chautauqua move
ment, and especially In the East,
where the Chautauqua originated, Is
the Ignorance ot the real outgrowth
most profound. Tho conservntlvo
Democrat ot tho Bast, tor example,
continually rubs his eyes and
scratches his head oer the vitality
of the Bryan boom.
" 'Chautauqua?' Why. that Is a
lake In western Now York, with n
summer school. Some such vague
Idea exists In many minds, and oven
when they do know what Chautau
qua Institute (of New York) Is, they

is expensive, in business mat

do not know that It Is a mero drop
In the bucket of the great Chnutau
qua movement of tho West. Theso
Chautauquas are held for about ton
day sessions, from June to Septem
ber, all over tho West, and tho nlm
is to hold them when and whero tho
rural population can attend. And It
does. The farmer nnd his family buy

"Most people, can understand the
figures of gate-receipts If a llttlo
slow to accept figures ot speech.
They can begin to realize Bryan's
popularity when it Is expressed in
dollars, and yet Mr. Bryan's fees nro
the swallcst part of the dividends
from his platform work, ns before
hinted. It Is only fair to Mr. Bryan'
to mention that ho makes more
speeches without pay than ho does
for pay. A large part of his time is
devoted to public and party work,
which not only brings no profits, but
Involves n very considerable expense.
"Nor does Mr. Bryan chnrgo 'all
the traffic will bear.' It Is Interest
ing to nolo that his contracts pro
vide that the admission fee to hear
him shall not be higher than tho
same fee for at least two other num
bers of the 'Course.' Is this modesty
tho wisdom of tho serpent or the
hnrmlessncss of the dove?"
YACHTS OET AWAY

stood up the channel nt a great rata.
The Hclene had followed the proces
sion thus far, but turned back when
off Diamond Head light.
By noon, the racers were all mere
ly Indistinguishable Bpecks to tho
lookout, and their positions could no
longer bo mado out. They soon drop
ped out of Bight, getting to tho wind
ward of Molokal.
Committee to Hilo
Members of tho Trans-Paclflc
Yacht Committee and others Interest
ed in tho boats went out for Hilo on
the Mauna Ken this noon. Among
these Is Charles Wilder, who lins
practically complete charge of this
race, and H. P. Roth, of tho Hawaii
Yacht Club, was aleo among the pas
The yachts may arrive ot Hilo
some tlmo tomonuw nt tho earliest.

by agreement up tho first channel
to wlndwnrd of Mnloknl, nnd thenco
Bouth to ,Hllo, ntwajs to tho wind
ward of the Islands. But tho Kam
and tho aiads wero not restricted
to any course, nnd thero was n good
deal of speculation as tu what courso
they actunlly would pursue.
It was stated by Mr. Wilder, how
ever, that ho thought In case tho
seas wero not boisterous up tho chan
nel nnd to windward, tho llttlo craft
would go tho banio course as the'oth
crs. The flnjshlng lino Is ono drawn
from the whistling buoy nt Hilo Bay
to the Wnlnnku Mill.
Why These Funny Tricks?
Somo speculation among jaclitn
men was caused by tho maneuvers of
the Lurlino before the race. Why
did not Sinclair tack before tho time
when he knew the gun wns to have
fired? All of tho other yachts wero
there on the Jump, and the Lurllnc
sailing around so generally that It
was thought she must be coming
back into port. Was It a little brag
ndoclo? Probably the Lurllne was
giving cards nnd spades to the other
Who Went on Racers
A number of guests went out tin
tho yachts. The Hawaii, besides her
skipper II. E. Cooper and her crew,
had Prince Cupid, L. A. Thurston,
and W. It. Furrlngton on board. Dan
Logan nndjtEben Low wont out on
the Lurllno ns guests of Commodoro
Sinclair. One of the Young boys nnd
Mr. Arnold," tho I'unahou teacho..
were on the 'Gwendolyn II.
Hawaii Looks Good
The Hawaii was observed by many
watchers to. be pulling up on the
field when the boats were passing
Waiklkl. She certainly looked much
lighter tbnWjtornierly, and was doing
her share aKthe sailing right nlorig.
The'Knm, tacked to get further In
shore when, going up. the channel.
She probably took advantage of all
tho off-shore breeze which was to
be found. ,
Speculation Is of courso nt fever
heat. Tho result of this trial ought
to show something ot how the bigger
race was lost. Can Uie Hawaii real
ly sail after all? Tho question Is now
Cooper the Skipper
ii. a. cooper, wno sans her. Is ono
of tho best known of local yachts
men, nnd well known ns n man who
can get tho speed out of n pleasure
yacht. The fact that he has accept
ed the Job of sailing tho Hawaii is
proof of his faith In her.
This splendid attraction in the
movlng-plcture lino will bo shown
next Monday, Aug. 3d, at tho Empire
Theatre. Mrs. King, formerly ot the
Art Theatre, has been engaged to
sing for tho Illustrated pictures. La
