revise did not mean reduce, and when
time and again I demanded of the Re
publican candidate that he tell the
people what he meant by revise
whether he intended to reduce the
tariff, the nearest he ever came to
stating was that it would mean the
reformation of the schedules, and fin
ally he said that it would probably
be downward. But the people thought
it would be certainly downward, and
I b:ad Democrats to tell me they
thought I was not fair to the Republi
,can candidate when I even suggested
that the revision might be upward.
But the people have found that the
word. revise does not mean down
ward; it may be up or down, or side
ways,. or any way. But they will never
use the word revise again in a plat
form. It served its day; it is obso
lete;-it can not fool any more.''
"Now, if this were an appropriate
occasion," said Mr. Bryan,' "I would
be glad to show you what tremendous
progress has bee-i made, and wbile
this progress has been so wirlasrread
that it takes from the Democratic
party any claim that it may have aad
to a monopoly of good ideas, still it
is so much more important that tile
people should have reforms than it is
that those refoims should come from
anY party, that I think, even as Demo
crats, we can rejoice that things that
were partisan because advocated by
our party alone have now become the
accepted policies of the country.
"Take the election of senators by
the people. That began 19 years ago
in a Democratic congress. The Demo
crats led in the advocacy of it. They
put it. in three national campdigns.
It-was never endorsed in a Republican
national platform, and in the last Re
* publican national convention, it was
not only not endorsed, but repudiated
by a vote of seven to one. And yet
when' it passed the kouse the other
day only fWteen Repub(licans voted
against it, gnd when it passed the sen
ate it- had a majority of nearly three
to one. The sentiment has grown un
til every party is in favor of the elec
tion of senators by direct vote of the
people, and that which the Democrats
urged and.had the Reputlicas oppos
ing them rn is no'w accepted by Re
publicanis, as well as Democrats, and
the iresolution is in conference, and we
are only waiting on the getting to
-gether of these two houseg upon the
phraeselogoy that' both will accept,
and 'then I amn satisfied it w-i11 be en
dorsed in both houses 'by an almost
unanimous vote. Not that all those
people there believe in i,t. They do
not. We have men in the senate and
some in 'the house who do not believe
in letting the people have what they
want. But they have not the courage
to oppose the people w'hen the people
express themselves with the emphasis
that they have on this subject.
"The income tax fight bega'n seven
*teen years ago, and we had great op
position, and I have lived to see a Re
-publican president take a plank' out
of the Democratic. platform-and, if
you' will pardon gne for saying so,' I
have lived to see the man who defeat
ed me 'take a.plank that I wrote my
self, out of any platform, and put it
through a Republican senate without
opposition, and I have seen that doc
trine that I have been called an an
archist for advocating, more than for
any"other thing that I have advocated
-I have seen it endorsed by thirty
States of the Union; as many Demo
cratic as Republican, I think. I have
seen it endorsed by one branch~of the
legislature of Massachusetts, of New
York ankd of New Jersey, and endors
ed by both branches way up'in Maine.
Thie has now become an accepted doc
trine in this country, and yet it arous
ed bitter opposition only a few years
"Three years ago we had the parties
divided on the subject of campaign
contributions. Our party said that the
publication should be before the elec
ien. The 1%epublicans said not until
afterwards. ?4r. Taft said not unti!
afterwards. Mr. Roosevelt said not
before, that would be very improper.
And the bill that was afterwards pass
ed embodied the Republican~ idea, and
is now on the statute books, making
publication after the election. But
our party has insisted that it should
be befom'e, and the second measuire in
the Democratic program when the
Democratic Congress convened in ex
traordinary session was publication
before the election. And I know of
no such revolution in 'history as there
has been on this subject, for when
that bill came to a vote in the house,
not one Republican dared to go on a
record vote against the plan that the
Democrats advocated three years ago,
.and which the Republicans then op
posed through their president in office
and their candidate for president.
"You can see why I have been en
joying life, and yet I would not leave
you uinder the impression that I con
sider myself as entitledi to any consid
erab:e amorat c' part of the commien
dation that i un received from gen

It is in politics as it is in the army

have not been known; these have no

have ben unloading and trying tc
give them their share. One man car
not do much in this country; it takes
a great many."
Mr. Bryan told of a visit by him las1
winter a year ago to a city in Soutl
America, on the western slope of th(
Andes. "It is about 7,000 feet abovE
the sea," he said, "and the rain fal]
amounts to but two inches a year. Th(
air is so dry that Harvard'University
has put an observatory there Pro=
which to look at the stars. They hav
a great camera for photographing thE
stars, and one night they turned this
camera upon a star, and when ,they
examined the plate they found it wa.
not a star, but it was four thousand
"And so, if you could take a photo

they call Bryanism, and do not mak(
fun of so much, you will find that il

any one person did; it would repre
sent -the work of about six millions and
a half of people in this country. And
all of us have reason to rejoice. Ther(
is glory enough in the achiev#ments oJ
our party today to divide, and enougl
for all. For, while the Republicar
,pirty has been in office, the Demo
cratic party has been in power foi
the last fifteen years. While the3
have drawn the salaries, the Demo.
crats have moulded opinion, and le
the way. And I glory in a party tha
has been willing to go down to de
feat rather than surrender its princi
ples, and I rejoice in the vindicatior
that has brought to that party the gra.
tification of seeing the righteous caus
es for which it stands force themselve;

I"I have spoken thus on these politi
cal questions because I appreciate
very much the loyalty that thes'
E.uthern States have shown-loyal0
to those ideals,' loyalty to these rc
formte. And, while I appreciate the
personal support they h1ave given- me,
I si.preciate even more the support
that they have given to the things in)
which I have been interested, for
these things are far more important
than any individual can be.''
"The Prince,of Peace."
Mr. Bryan then entered upon his
theme, "The Prince of Peace," one of
the most .scholarly, logica.l, forceful
and eloquent presentations ever made
of the greatest subject in the world. It
would be impossible to give an ade
quite synopsis of the magnificent ad
It-might be well in this connection
to give the following paragraph from
Mr. . Bryan's lecture, which brought
forth spontaneous applause from his
Newberry audience, and which is pe
culiarly applicable to present-day con
"All the world is in search of peace;
every heart 'that ever beat has sought
for peace, and many have been the
methods employed to secure it. Somne
have thought to pur'chase it with rich
es and have labored to secure wealth,
hoping to find peace 'when they were
able 'to go where they pleased and buy
what they liked. Of those who have
endeavored to purchase peace with
money, the large majority have failed
to secure the money. But what has
been the experience of those who
have been eminently successful in
finance? They all tell the same story,
viz., that they spent the first half of
their lives trying to get money from
others and the,last half. trying to keep
others from getting their money, and
that they found peace in neither half.
Some have even reached the point
where they find difficulty in getting
people to accept their money; and I
know of no better indicatior. of the
ethical awakening" in this country
than the increasing tendency to scru
tinize the methods of money-making.
I am sanguine :enough to believe thai
the time will yet come 'when respecta
bility will no longer be sold to great
criminals by helping them to spend
their ill-gotten gains. A long step in
advance will 'have been taken wher
religious, educational and charitable
institutions refuse to condone con
scienceless methods in business and
leave the possessor of illegitimate ac
cumulations to learn how lonely life
is wxhen one prefers money to morals.'
