WILLIAM J. BRYAN,
ENGLAND TO BOYCOTT US.
jln. J. H. Tkitton, of Lombard
street, London, has expressed his
news through the N. Y. World of
August 10, on the money question,
jjjj on the direful consequences
Aii would follow if Mr. Bryan-
uafree silver Congress should be
elated this year. While the peo
ple of the United States are deeply
interested in the views of the cap
italists of Europe on our financial
pestions, yet they are not prepared
to gfre assent to their opinions, or
concede to the gold standard bank
en of England the exclusive right
to declare the course we should fol
low. Mr. Tritton starts off with'
the assertion "that it is not likely
Bryan and silver will win." Of
course Mr. Tritton may know just
how the election will go, but it
seems a little odd that an English
man's views as seen from his count
ing house, could be more certain
than the most alert American poli
tician, all of whom see the exact
opposite to Mr. Tritton.
This English, money baron then
goes on to say: "As soon as Amer
ican mints open for free coinage,
the Oriental countries, viz., India,
China and Japan, who have been
hoarding an immense amount of
sflrer for centuries, will unload their
bullion on the United States and
glut the country with money, and
gold would disappear." We would
Eke to ask Mr. Tritton what these
Oriental people would get in ex
change for their vast sums of silver?
They surely would not bring it here
to he coined and then return it to
tirir own land. Neither would
they scatter it as a gift to us. Sup
pose they load up a ship with their
buffion, bring it here and have it
coined bto silver dollars; what will
ther then do with it? Will they
not bur our products from the
farm, factory and workshop? If
they do, then will we not have their
trade as well as their money? Why
should gold then disappear? Who
would want to hoard gold then?
Would not the holders of gold at
once see that in order to get a
profit on their money they must
put it into the channels of trade
dong with silver, or else lose their
share of the business of the world?
The facts are, that England plainly
sees that if the United States
adopts bi-metallism, she, as well as
all the other commercial nations of
Europe, will be compelled to do
likewise. Mr. Tritton then in
dulges in the threat that "all for
eign investments would be with
drawn, transactions closed up,
mortgages foreclosed, etc., if free
silver prevails in America."
In oth,er words, we are to be sub
jected to a national boycott. To
which we say, "Lay on Macduff, and
dd be he who first cries hold,
enough!" TVecandb without you
better than you can do withomt us,
Uu John Bull. Your threats are
mere belches of wind. Sapfoae
you do foreclose all the mortgage
you hold; what then? YoawiQ sot
awav from na tlu farms.
e bruldings, the railroads, tie
mines, the factories, or any of the
tangible property now in this coun
try. All of these will remain with
us, and in addition, we will have
the trade and good will of the bal
ance of the world, and we will have
plenty of money to loan to our
people who are compelled to bor
row. When you leave the United
States we shall sing, "Good-bye, my
lover, good-bye." Remember you
left us about one hundred and
twenty years ago over a little spat
at a tea party; but you soon came
back and politely asked us to asso
ciate with you again. Go, and
pout it out, and when you get over
your pet, come back, and we will
give you another chance to behave
Negro National Democracy League
Has an Interesting Meeting.
Chicago, Aug. 12. The Negro
National Democracy league con
vention today effected permanent
organization, electing A. E. Man
ning, of Indiana, president; W. H.
Clarke, of Illinois, secretary; W.
E. Johnson, of New York, treasurer,
and W. T. Scott, of Illinois, chair
man national executive committee.
About eighty delegates were pres
ent. The committee on resolutions
presented a majority and a minority
report. The majority report says
"We, being an important factor,
representing 2,000,000 voters, feel
it a duty to cast our votes against
the monopolies, trusts, combines
and millionaires, favored in the
platform adopted by the national
Republican convention for gold."
It also denounces Mark Hanna
and the national committee "for
endeavoring to force upon the com
mon people the issue of a protective
tariff, which protects industries that
discriminate againstthe negro, and
condemns the United States su
preme court for discriminating
against the negro race in its decis
ions on the civil rights bill and the
"Jim Crow case." The report fa
vors free coinage and the Chicago
platform and endorses Bryan and
The light of the New Democracy
is shining all over the country and
among all races of men. We hail
with pleasure the progression of the
negro as shown by the above action
of the colored men of the North.
We trust the colored men of Utah
will show their independence and
manhood by cutting loose from
their old party prejudices, and will
this year stand up for their own in
terests, instead of running after the
g. o. p. and striving to get the
crumbs which fall from the official
table. We know of many in this
city who will be found working
early and late for Bryan and free
silver, but there are others who yet
need a little missionary work. But
the colored vote in Salt Lake will
surprise the Hannites and Dooly-
BRYAN'S GREAT SPEECH.
Mr. Bbtans speech delivered at
Madison Square Garden, New York
City, on the 12th of August, on the
formal notification of his nomina
tion, was the peerless, effort of mod
ern statesmanship. It was deliv
ered in the presence of 15,000 peo
ple, and notwithstanding the in
tense heat was listened to with un
fcmken interest by this great Amer
ican audience, who showed their
appreciation by storms ot applause.
Thk address will live in history as
one of the .most logical, earnest and
patriotic efforts since the days of
jtfawn. Mr. Bryan founded the
key-Mte of the casfipaigB, wad gave
ample assurance that he was the
right man to lead the friends of
free government out of our present
deplorable condition. The address
is too lengthy to produce in our
limited space, but we insist that it
is the duty of every voter in the
nation to read it carefully before
making up his mind. The Chicago
platform is completely vindicated,
and shown to be a spontaneous up
rising of the masses as against the
classes. The money question is
made the overshadowing issue of
the coming election; and the rea
sons for the free coinage of silver
are given in the strongest and most
convincing manner possible. In
fact the speech has carried dismay
into the goldbug camp, and is bear
ing fruit right in the city of New
York, and all over the Eastern
States. Since this address was de
livered, Mr. Bryan has become the
idol of the people even in the
enemy's country, and he is called
upon to speak all over the State of
New York and in New England.
From present indications there is
no power on earth that can prevent
the triumph of Bryan and free sil
ver. It would seem, "There is a
destiny that shapes our ends, rough
hew them as we may."
With this number of the Broad
As, we shall have completed our
first year of journalistic life. One
year ago, without friends, money,
subscribers or advertisers, we is
sued No. 1 of Vol. I, and launched
the little craft on the perilous sea
of journalism, with Democracy,
the free coinage of the honest sil
ver dollar, and the interests of Utah
as our rudder and sail. We have
thus far survived the rocks and
storms, and today our little craft is
making weekly voyages to the peo
ple of Utah, and many of the other
States, bearing messages of truth
and liberality to its numerous read
ers. During the year we have en
larged our paper to four times its
original size, and our list of sup
porters has grown beyond our most
sanguine expectation. We started
with less than one hundred sub
scribers, now we are nearning the
While we have made no money
through the enterprise, yet we have
kept free from debt, and have as true
and devoted a class of readers as
one could wish. We desire to ex
press our gratitude to the many
noble men and women of Utah,
who have stood by us in our strug

John Sherman and the goldbugs
are now contending, that the price
of silver cannot be raised by legis
lation; that its value is determined
by the law of supply and demand.
This, indeed, is a- strange position
for a protectionist to assume. They
have for years been contending,
that the law of a protective tariff
would raise the value of all of our
products, and give higher wages to
the working men: now they sud
denly discover that supply and de
mand is what regulates values. If
this is not a case of death-bed re
pentance, then we never heard of
one. Of all the commodities on
this earth, the money metals are
the only ones that are affected by
legislation; for the simple reasoa
tht the valae of both cold aad sil-
var are created by act of law. If
a protective tariff law raises the
price of a pound of iron, why can
not a friendly law raise the price of
an ounce of silver? If unfriendly
legislation depreciates the value of
all our manufactured articles, and
the price of labor, why does not
unfriendly legislation toward silver
cause its value to shrink and de
preciate? Please answer by return
mail, and oblige the American
Portuoal is on a gold basis; her

This proves that Mexico, beiug on

worth only fifty cents, is a poorer
