WILLIAM J. BRYAN,
YOUNG MEN TO THE RES
CUE. We commenkd the following
editorial from the Salt Lake Trib
une, of July 13th, as being the
most apt and unanswerable argu
ment in favor of the young "West
em champion, that we hare yet
seen. The application to Bryan is
superb, especially that part re
ferring to the dodging of the
javelin of Saul.
Cleveland, Carlisle and Hill, with
their jealous javelins, will fail to
harm this gallant young Lochin
var, who has come out from the
West to lead the hosts of the peo
ple on to victory and bring dismay
to the camp of the Philistine gold-
"8NEEBS THAT DO NOT COUNT.
"The Eastern press are just now
exhausting all their sneers upon
the 'boy orator.' They should go
a little slow, because we cannot al
ways, 10016110163, most generally
tell how things are coming out.
"If they remember, Samuel was
about to anoint Eliab. but the Lord
bade him not look upon his coun
tenance or on the height of his
stature. Then Abiuadab was made
to pass before Samuel, but he
would not do. The same luck at
tended Shammah, and it was the
same with seven sons of Jesse.
" 'And Samuel said unto Jesse:
Are here all thy children? And he
said, there remaineth yet the
youngest, and behold he keepeth

in. Now, he was ruddy, and with
al of a beautiful countenance, and
goodly to look to. And the Lord
said: Arise, anoint him, for this is
"Then, too, when David left his
father's sheep and, with his pop
corn, apple pie, doughnuts and
cheese, went up to his brethren
who were in Saul's army at Elah,
and heard the challenge of Goliath
and saw everybody run just at the
sound of the giant's voice, he want
ed to know what would come to the
man who would kill the Philistine
and take away the reproach from
Israel, and asked: 'Who is this
uncircumcised Philistine that he
should defy the armies of the liv
ing God?' Then the anger of Eliab
was kindled against David, and with
a regular goldbug sneer he asked:
'With whom hast thou left those
few sheep in the wilderness?'
"But David got away with the
giant all the same, and later he
dodged Saul's javelin, and at last
made so much reputation for him
self that the world still remembers
him, though it has forgotten Eliab.
He downed Goliath with a pebble
fired from a sling. Now, this new
David may not be handy with the
old-fashioned sling, but he can sling
English that no goldbug Goliath
can stand before for a quarter of
"The gold press had better give
up their sneers. There is some
thing serious on hand this year,
nd the thing to be discussed is
how, under present conditions, the
poor and unlettered man can go
out and make a living for himself
and his little family. No sneer
vill guess that conundrum."
We might add that the yomng
men of the world kave been the
greatest leaders. Jefferson was

r&fionof Isdepeade&ce; Alexander,
Csar, Napokoa, Byre a thous
ands of the brightest and greatest
men of all ages have made their
achievements while in the prime
and vigor of life. Even f!ht
himself was a young man when He
finished His great work of refor
mation in the hills of Judea, two
thousand years ago; and yet He
was sneered at by the gray-bearded
goldbugs and pharisees of olden
time. We are for Bryan and a
new deal, and new blood.
A FALSE CLAIM.
The country has been treated to
a good deal of talk, through Re
publican sources, about a large de
ficiency in the revenues of the gov
ernment, and it is charged up to
the Democratic tariff of 1894 and
1895. In this year, while the g.
o. p. is trying to force the tariff
question to the frdnt, this claim
may attract some little attention,
and, if it is studied just a little, it
will be seen to be an absolutely
The McKinley bill was the tariff
law in this country for about two
years, viz., 1892-3; during which
time, in the port of New York,
which furnishes 80 per cent, of the
duty on imports, there was $21,
000,000 less per year collected un
der the McKinley law, than was
received at the same port for the
year ending June 30th, 1896, un
der the Wilson law. Had the high
protective tariff law of McKinley
oeen continued, there would have
been a much larger deficiency than
Another reason why the revenues
of the government fall off from
import duties, is, that with the de
monetization of silver, every article
of trade and commerce is reduced
in value; and as a large part of the
tariff duties are based upon an ad
valorum schedule, the amount of
revenues derived from duties on
imports decreases as the values de
crease. From a table, prepared by Mr.
Worthington C. Ford, head of the
National Bureau of Statistics, from
which the exact truth may be
learned, it appears that the receipts
from custom duties this year will
be nearly $70,000,000 more than
was received under the last year of
the McKinley bill. But after all,
there is no danger of any radical
change in the tariff, even if Mc
Kinley were to be elected.
The g. o. p. are only bluffing
about tariff and protection; they
would not increase the general
average one per cent. But then
what is the use of talking about
tariff this year? The people will
not stop to discuss this old thread
bare subject, either in the East or
in the West. Still we shall hear
the goldbugs of the plutocratic
party striving to attract some atten
tion to their hobby, while they con
tinue to plunder the people through
their "sound money" schemes; but
the tariff issue, with the people,
rill be no more than a fly on a
cart wheel this year.

ggects of which he never recovered.
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, JULY 18, 1896.
HIS STAR HAS ARISEN IN
On the 23d of November last
year the Broad Ax published an ed
itorial entitled, "A Star of Hope,"
in which we claimed that the Dem
ocratic ship of state, as formerly
manned by such men as Jefferson
and Jackson, had been misused and
mismanaged until it was driven into
dry dock for repairs; that the No
vember elections had put the party
in political quarantine, for a time
at least; but, that it would be only
until the party returned to the tra
ditions and precepts, when it would
come out of the wilderness, and go
forth to battle "like a young giant
refreshed by new wine." We then
said that the "star of hope is rising
m the South and West. If we fol
low, it will lead us out of our pres
ent difficulties, and open up the
dawn of a new day." We then at
that time urged the nomination of
a Southern or Western man for
President, on a platform of free
silver, 16 to 1. We also announced
our choice as being John T. Mor
gan, of Alabama, or William J.
Bryan, of Nebraska, and we put
their names at the head of our col
umns, as representing our Presi
dential preference. At that time
we had no choice as to which of the
above named gentlemen should head
the ticket, but merely placed them
in that order with regard to their
age. Time has proven our selection
to have been well founded; and the
Broad Ax of course feels proud of
having named the successful man.
The platform also, is the kind we
urged should be proclaimed to the
people; so, with the candidate aud
the platform both to our liking, we
feel that the "star of hope" will
surely rise, and like an angel om
mercy will have "healing iu its
wings." The cause of the people
will not lag as the campaign grows
apace, but "with ever increasing
distinctness, its waves will lash
along the lonely shores" of that
shattered island, upon which are
gathered the panic-stricken pluto
crats and oppressors of the people.
ANOTHER RICHMOND IN THE
At last the clouds of despair
have parted, and a gleam of light
has flashed upon the McKinley
band wagon as it pursues its sol
itary way through Utah. A cham
pion with golden wings, a heart as
courageous as the gallant knights
of old, and with an eye of discern
ment as prophetic as the seers of
the Orient, has come down from the
political skies, and proclaims his
devotion to the g. o. p., to McKin
ley and gold, and waiving all cere
monies or personal engagements,
declares he will be a candidate for
Congressional honors in the State
of Utah on the British-Repnblican-McKinley-gold
ticket. This martyr
to the cause of ('de gang" and his
own lofty ambition, is the well
known constitutional lawyer of this
citv. John Lu Taylor. The gentle
man referred to elevates his light
ning rod through the columns of
Wednesday's Herald in a letter ad
dressed to the Tribune. The Tay
lor family are a lot of irrepressible
patriots, but there are several
branches, and this "scion of a noble
house" is no relative to the editor
of the Broad Ax, who fortunately
bears the same name. With C. O.
Whittemore's mission to Canton,
Ohio, for the purpose of inducing
the Napoleon of the g. o. p. to visit
Utah, and John La Taylor as a field
j marshal to lead the charge of the
"old guard" across the Congress
ional road, there is no reason to
fear that another Waterloo will be
repeated within this "walled garden
of the gods " The Broad Ax is
really glad that the McKinley boom
has struck Salt Lake, as it will make
it more lively during the campaign,
and give the silver men an oppor
tunity to try their allied power on
this champion of a "lost cause."
