Bryan will carry his peace-lov
ing, persuasive policy into the
campaign. Those who expect from
him rancorous abuse of Wall street
or the sound money leaders will
be mistaken. Before the campaign
is half over the Altgelds and the
Tillmaus will be calling him weak
kneed. The speech to-day at Sa
lem was deeply significant for two
things. One was the stand Mr.
Bryan took upon A. P. A. ism, as
it is commonly understood. He
paid an eloquent tribute to the
place where he had "learned the
lesson of freedom of conscience,"
and declared that the Government
must not interfere "with worship
according to the dictates of con
But the secoud significan! utter
ence was of even greater impor
tance. Mr. Bryan plainly indica
ted that he would not be a leader
of a Populistic movement against
wealth. The Government, he said,
must protect the fortunes of the
rich as well as tho possessions of
the poor. He explained expressly
that he was not pleading for a lev
eling which would hamper indi
vidual efforts and make all alike,
but for a condition which whould
give all men the same rights be
fore the law. The language was
apparently intended to meet the
criticism of his first speech the
night he arrived at Sulem. On
that occasion he said he was for a
government which shall be "no
reepecter of persons, but which
shall, like heaven, treat all per
To-day he explained his posi
tion ; it was that all persons should
be alike in the eyo of the law, but
not alike in wealth or intellect, at
tainments or accomplishments.
If Mr. Bryan keeps on he will
prove himself to be more of a Dem
ocrat and less of a Populist than
the country supposed.
-St. Louis Republic.
The leading republican organs
are already getting badly frighten
ed, and assert that unless some
thing is done to stem the silver ti
dal wave that Bryan will sweep
the country. Even the gold stiong
holds in the East arc in peril.
It is Mr. Cleveland's plain duty to
call an international conference
now. That duty is none the less
imperative bca.use he has neglected
it so long.-N. Y.World.

Gove) Dor Evans opened his
speech by referring to Whitman's
charge that he had UFed $6,000 for
the exhibit a; Atlanta, making the
explanation heretofore printed. As
to the explanation of Colonel
Tompkins' explanation, it was en
* General Earle said he was neith
er a reformer or conservative, but
a democrat. It was necessary for
a man to be more than that. Ho
must say he favored the alliance
demands of 1890. There are dem
ocrats and democrats, aud reform
ers and reformers.
Evans-Yes, and reformers and
'.eformers and I was a reformer
while you was trying to stab us in
the back. We put Earle on the
hench because he said these fel
lows ought not cuss out Ben Till
man when governor. Was that uot
paying him pretty well? Are you
now going to turn out au old horse
when ho has made the crop to let
him die in the woods and be eaten
Earle-Where were you in 1890
when I went to Aiken.
. Evans-I was on the same side
then as now.
Earle-Then you played on b >tb
Evans-Then you an.l I are in a
Earle--That day you wore un
derstood to be on the other side.
Evans-Why they said the Evaus
boys howled down General Hamp
ton. John Haskell said the Evans
boys howled Hampton down but
he knew it was a lie.
Whitman-You don't deny that
taxes? were $200.000 more last
year than in 1SS2? '
Evans said that the taxes had
not b?en increased ; the increased
taxes was gathered from property
that had been added to the books
"If some of these men," said
Evans, "will look up the tax facts
and bring them out ? will venture
to say that he (Whitman) will
luce his tail and quit the stump.
Evans appealed to the people
not to sleep in the belief that vic
tory was already won. Don't let
these men, who were your enemies,
tie you hand and foot. Wh .n.the
primary comes off don't stay at
home. This election is your in
strument to secure victory nearly

a m??? who fought their principles
in 1890, Evaus then broached
the bond deal. His time was ex
hausted, but was extended. He
went over the oft repeated state
ment. At the coLclusiou Judge
Earle asked. How much did you
make out of it.
Evans-Not one cent; I expect
to get a fee.
Earle-Did you not state to
Phil Gadsden that you were go
ing to get from $10,000 to $15,000
as your fee?
Evans-No, and if he says so,
he lies. You know, sir, that such
? fee as that would be too big
for the service to be an honest
Earle-I do not make tho charge.
I ask you if it is not so.
Evaus-If Phil Gadsden says
so, he lies in his throat. Boys,
Phil Gadsden is ono of the bitter
est antis and is my political ene
my. Do you suppose if this thing
was so, I have so little sense as to
go and tell one of my enemies
that I was corrupt? (Cheers.)
Earle-Did you not tell Gantt
you expected a fee?
Evaus-I have said that in the
presence of about every oue in the
State. Certainly I expect to get a
fefi. Now I think Generpl Earle
should answer tho questions of Mr.
Earle-I am not ashamed to an
swer any question about myself.
Evans-No, I don't believe you
are ashamed to say that you were
an auti ; that you fought Tillman j
that you said the Shell manifesto
was alie from beginning to end.
He really did not think Earle ex
pected to get the office. He was
studying geography and would
come and ask the people for some
thing six years from now when
they would give it to him.
Governor Evans closed by mak
ing au appeal for the people to
stand to their guns; not to be per
suaded tc desert their cause aud
not to swap off votes. He was
cheered and applauded.
Judge Earle was applauded, the
ladies in the audience leading. He
immediately alluded to Governor
Evans' speech as a remarkable
haraogue, the like of which he did
not suppose had ever been made
by auy governor of any State in
Evans-these are record break
Earle-lu this campaign when
tte people are supposed to be in
structed on important questions,
they come hero and listen to a ti
rade. All he can say about me is:
"Don't vote for him ; he ran ag.vnst
Tillman in '90." Yes, I did run
for governor in 1890, but I ran
against Tillman, and in all of that
campaign In3ver heard such lit
tle, moan, contemptible flings as I
have heard hore today.
Evans-What do you mean by
Earle-I always mean just what
I say-mean, contemptible flingj.
Evans:-Why, if there was notb- ;
iug charged against you in 1890, 1
did you have to take the ?dump as <
a candidate lo explain? <
Earle-Because it had gotten i
into the minds of the people that
something was wrong, sir; justas
it has gotten iuto the minds tber-'
is something wrong about you and
you'll "he fortunate if you clear
yourself before them as I did.
Evans-I guess so.
Ear,e-At the Kingstree meet
ing the governor of the State, oc
cupying that position of dignity,
said to me: "I'll rip him up the
back," he being the Aiken game
Evans-Well, haven't I?
General Earle said that without
making charges of his own, and
just accepting Evans1 statement,
he would say that if Tillman had
known of Evans' connection with
Rbind when he suggested him for
appointment as financial agent he
would not have appoiuted him.
Evans-I had no connection with
him, sir, at that time. Tillman
knew my relations with him.
Earle-You have said so, and I
say it is so.
Evans-I did not, sir.
Earle-Your own statements
place that as the only logical in
ference and it is so.
AN EXCITING MOMENT.
Governor Evans had risen, and
Judge Earle turned his back on the
audience and advanced toward
Evans. Both were shaking their
fingers and tht'y did so until the
index finger of the right hand of
each came within a foot of tho oth
er's. Judge Earle appeared more
angry than I have even seen him.
His face was white while thal of
Evans waH red.
Earle-I have the floor, sir, and
I'll stay here. You stand convic
ted by your own statements. No
other construction can be put upon
it. When a State senator you re
commended Rhind, and if Till
man had ?cnown you were a friend
in the seuse of attorney ho would
never have appointed him.
Evans-1 repeat I wrt< not his
Earle-If Tillman had known
he was your copartner lie never
would have appointed him.
Evans-He was not my copart
ner; I've said it's not se.
Earle-It's the only inference.
Why was he selectt d by Rhind?
Was it because of his extraordina
ry ability, because of his brillian
cy at the bai ? Were lhere not not
men sufficiently capable of doing
the work in Baltimore and else
where** Why was Rhind reoom
mended-a broker of no national
reputation, with no standing in 1 he
great financial world?
Turning to Detective Newbold,
Judge Earle said : "As to this gen
tleman, if I do bim an injustice,
I beg his pardon, but il is asserted
that he has boen appointed to fol
low this campaign around to pro
tect Governor Evans."
Evans-He went around with
A Voice-There is no need for
him to come here.
Just here one side of the stand
^ar'?^Py^??^ upon it
and went down with a tremendous
crash. The speakers were on the
other side and escaped. As i twas
going down, Governor Evans was
heard denying that Newbold was
here to protect him. "I don't
need auy one to protect me," said
Earles-And if you did, a det^c
tiye would not stay in tho wray.
Evans-No; if I did, I would be
Earle, scon fully-Oh! you
would. But all this is child's play,
gentlemen. There are more im
portant subjects to discuss. The
judge then discussed the financial
question. Before he concluded
there was a diversion, General
Earle having drifted to the dispen
sary question. Seeing Secretary
Tompkins, he asked him if it was
so, as stated bv Evans at Lancas
ter, that the board of control had
agreed on a certain policy for
Evans to carry out.
Colonel Tompkins-I know of
no such agreement.
Evans-Did you not tell me >ou
would back me up in carrying out
Tompkins-I remember no such
Evans-well, you did. (To Gen
eral Earle.) Is there any evidence
the State lost by the board having
Earle-I asked to find out what
Mr. Tompkins had to say about it.

these things as I go along.

Bennettsville. July 22.-This
was tho mooting of the campaign
Five hundred people heard a letter
from Tillman endorsing Evans
conduct in the bond deal Tho lol
ter was in answer to jue written
by Duncan T'llman sending a
copy to Evans. Tillman said that
he regretted thal Duncan had
written bini as it obliged him to
speak in his usual blunt way. He
condemned Duncan's repeating a
pr?valo conversation ii:, such a
manner as to deceive tho people
into tho belief thal he was back

mentioned his intention of enter
