give very general satisfaction to the
Republicans of Pennsylvania.
Judging from the reckless maimer
in which Mr. Bryan mixes up heaven
and hell in his speeches, he cannot
have any too much reverence for the
ono or fear of the other.
For a man who never laid the
slightest claim to oratory our friend
Major McKiuley manages to deliver
some very able addresses. The race
is not always to the swift nor the vie
tory ti the boy orators of the Flatte.
Judge Noyes of this district, who
was a delegate to the Chicago con
vention, repudiates the Chicago nom
inations. He says: "The majority of
the convention has delivered us to
the Populists. I cannot vole for the
Governor Altgf.ld is reported to
be "in raptures" over tho results of
the Chicago convention. The rumor
is important, but not for the reasons
given. Its real value lies in the re
minder that if Altgeld approves of
tho platform to tho extent of going
into raptures over it, the immediate
'uty of law-loving men is to repu
diate it at once.
Hill and Russell had just walloped
them, and Pitchfork Tillman had
wearied them. Thon aroso this au
dacious youth from tho plnios. The
occasion, the man, the temper of the
brain-fngped audience, was right.
His speech fit exactly, and as a re
ward for tho refreshing innovation
they nominated him for President.
Mr. Bryan was thirty-six years of
age last May, and has served two
terms in Congress, where ho was re
garded as a man of ordinary calibro.
In Nebraska he has long been in de
mand as a commencement and 4th of
July orator, but when statesmen were
being considered Bryan was not
thought of. Punx'y Spirit.
HE KVF.lt HAD, IN ALL IEPAHTM ENTS.
Mr. Bcyan should have a care.
Since his nomination at Chicago the
wifo of hia bosom, whoso graces have
been aiuted by many admiring
hands, has been making from two to
three speeches to limited audiences
each day upon semi-political topics.
Indeed, when Mr. Bryan himself has
net beou orating Mrs. Bryan has
been having hetself interviewed, and
soveral times already they both havo
been going it at one and the same
moment. e submit that this is too
perilous a policy for any candidate
to adopt. The dauger from it is two
fold. If it does not result in Mr.
Bryan s awakening some morning to
find that he has put his foot in bis
mouth, it is likely to demonstrate
that Mrs. Bryan has performed that
delicate service for him. And again
there is the daoger that the ladv's
aggrebsive views may give rise to the
belief that she is the real Populist
candidate. There is a sweet-voiced
but silent woman living out at Can
ton, O., whom the Nebraska lady
might imitate profitably for a time.

The Marrow of the Issue.
Mr, Bryan's business partner is
very confident that Mr. Bryan has
not been in the pa yofa n jr silver
Byndicatejjthfttever. But in a thing
frf-tbrS-'kind it is very difficult for a
business partner to prove a negative.
The assertions already published on
this subject are strongly backed, and
the proof will no doubt he forthcom
ing at the proper time.
The Socialists and Anarchists of
the country are greatly pleased with
Mr. Bryan's denunciation of the Su
preme Court for its decision in the
income tax case. They propose to
vote for him solely because he has
proclaimed himself the enemy of the
highest tribunal in the land. But is
not this a very good reason why every
law-abiding citizen should vote
Ex-Goveunok William E. Rus
sell, of Massachusetts, was found
dead in a fhhing tent at Aediaide,
Quebec, on the morning of July 1G
He had gone there for a few days'
recreation with his brother and a
friend. Heart disease is supposed to
have beeu the cause. He had served
three terms as Governor of Massa
chusetts, ana was not yet 41) years
of age when be died. He was one

Major McKinley's ripe experience
in legislation will no doubt bring him
many votes from the conservative
class of Democrats all ovor the coun
try. It has been discovered that candi
date Bryan is a corporation lawyer.
He is an attorney for the Missouri
Pacific railroad company. He will
have to throw up that position if he
expects recognition at the Populist
William McKinley struck the mar
row of the great issue before the peo
ple of the United States in a juite re
cent speech, when he said : "Finan
cial dishonor is the threatened dan
ger unw, and good men will obliter
ate old lines of party in a united ef
fort to uphold American honor;"-
Otf."McIvirjtey states the issue in a
nutshell. There is but one peril that
now threatens the great free govern'
ment of the world. A powerful par
ty has grown up, largely inspired hy
the demagogic appeals to the people
who have been sulTering from severe
business conditions, that openly pro
claims its purpose to dishonor the
credit of the Republic aud to bring
convulsion and panic into every chan
nel of industry and trade by the de
struction of private credit.
Until lb!'0 no formidable organi
zation under tiny name ventured to
dcclaro that the money of the country
should be deliberately debased to
one-half its value for the purpose of
paying the debts of the nation and of
individuals iu one-half the money
contracted to bo paid by the debtors
While the theories ot the cheap
money advocates havo directly tended
to that end, never until now has the
flag of repudiation aud dishonor been
unfurled and openly floated over
national organization that will cer
tainly poll several millions of votes
This is a fearful menace to the dig
nity and integrity of the Republic
and Mr. McKinley is entirely right
in declaring that "financial dishonor
is the threatened danger now," aud
that it should summou all good citi
zenB "iu a united eC'ort to uphold
Mr. McKiuley has come squarely
up to the issue as it has been pre
seuted by those who seek to over
throw the iutegrity of the nation, aud
ho thus proved himself worthy of tl
united support ot all who wish "to
uphold American honor." l'hilln

He is a dramatic and impetuous son
of the plains. As women go iulo es-
tacies over a fine tenor in an opera,
eo the Chicago convention went wild
over the voice of Bryan. His speech
did not contain a line or a sentence
that wab above tlie ordinary or com
monplace, and exhibited no depth of
reasoning or information. It wus
simply an iuenioas appeal to senti
ment aud prejudice, and the circum
stances were such ns to tet it on" iu
