PUT UP JOB FOR BRYAN.
Inside History of Ills Nomination Is Ills
cloned. Urjnn's nomination wns no accident,
so far as ho utid Ills friends were con
cerned. When ho btood up to make his
c cut fill speccli he was throw lug loaded
dice, which had been prepared nearly
two years before. The boy orator had
twisted his frlonUs in pulling the wires
formany months, and eery mote in the
yiiine had been btudied out.
This information as gleaned in Xc
brnsKa during1 the week preceding eh c
tlon, and the authority for the story
which follows is no less a person than
James C. Duhlmnn, chairman of the
democratic state central committe of
Nebraska, Mr. llrynn's conlldential po-
lltlcal udiiser and friend. IIegaetho
t Tribune correspondent permission to
print the story after election, and mcan
t while every statement he mado was
erilled from other sources, tho whole
prolng conelushcly that William Jen
nings llrjan knew he was playing for
high stakes when he made his cele
brated cross of gold speech at the Chi
i He was not Only fully aware of the
plans of his Nebraska friends, but was
consulted at ecry stage, and on him
self alone depended the flnnl maneuver
which secured to him the opportunity
to speak just nt the right time to cap
ture the contention. The story, as
told by Chairman Dahlman, supple
mented by the statement of others,
bears the impress of truth on its face,
and can easily be erlfled by nnyyone
who cares to do rfo.
' In the summer of 1S04 parties were
more or less split in Nebraska. The re
publicans were divided, and so were the
democrats. The former split oier the
got ernorshlp. 1 he latter broke into fac
tions on the money question. William
Jennings Bryan had been elected to
congress twice and had demonstrated
i first a great power of glib oratory, and,
--, secondly, n innrtelous facility for unit
ing different factions and parties.
The democrats, dit ided, could do noth
ing. By n union w ith the populists they
might control the state. 15rj an w as just
the ian to unite the free-silt er wing of
the Nebraska democrats with the
"pops." He was for flee trade and free

populists from tho day ho went Into
politics, and poscsessed glittciing ora
torical powers from which much could
llryan was still in the lower house of
congress and fully e.pected to bo a can
didate for reelection, when a little
coterie of democrats of the silt er faction
In Nebraska put their heads together
and dcttrmined that the hard times and
the general feeling of unrest were an
opportunity not to Be missed, and that
tho talkative young lawyer from Lin
coln could, if handled properly, be
landed in the white house.
Until the extra session of 1893 Brynn
had been n tnillT reformer only, and his
first speech on tho silter question was
admitted to be a failure. He began to
Btudy It, however, for use in the next
congressional campaign, and the long
period of idlenss In the house when the
senate was wrestling with the tariff bill
gate him abundant opportunity to post
The Nebraska siher democrats led
the young congressman up into a high
mountain and pointed out tho richness
of the land which should be his if he
obeyed instructions. They promised to
make him llrst senator from Nebraska
to succeed Gen. Mnnderson, and then
president to succeed Grot er Clet eland.
It was pointed out to him 'that the
brains and leadership of the democratic
party were all In the gold fnetlon, tthilo
the sllter men hail no candidates who
tterejenlly strong except in tho south,
nnd The selection of a man from that
section was out of the question.
It was belieted that the situation In
Nebraska was such that the necessary
start in the presidential race could
rosily be secured. It was proposed to
form nn oethe tonlltion with the popu
lists, glilng them the stnte goternmenr
and rescrt Ing the United States senator
for thedemocints. .Mr. llryan consent
ed to the plans outlined to him, nnd the
necessary steps were at once tnken to
put them into execution
began to look over the ground, the
echeme even then being to secure tho
necessary amount of .notoriety for Bry
an, bo that when he came to make his
grand-stand play people would already
know about him.
It was soon discovered that the Oma
ha World-Herald, which was not a silver
paper In the full sense of the word, was
In need of money. Then It was found
that for $13,500 Invested in the concern
control of its editorinl policy could be
secured. A deal was fixed up with Mr.
Hitchcock, the proprietor, whereby the
sllter men were to contribute the
money needed for typesetting machines
nnd other things, nnd in return Bryan
was to be made editor in chief, with full
authority to commit the paper to the
wildest coalition doctrines. The den
was consummated and n close agree,
ment entered into, guaranteeing con
trol of the paper until nf ter the national
convention, though Publisher Hitch
cock did not know just what the limit ol
time meant. .
Meanwhile Mr. Bryan had been la
boring at Washington. He wrote a long
letter announcing his candidacy for the
United States senate on n platform
which he laid down for himself, includ
ing free trade, free silier, on income
tax, election of senators by the people,
opposition' to monopolies nnd trusts
and other things democratic nnd popn
llstle. The day congress adjourned he
took editorial charge of the Omaha
World-Herald and began the campaign
which had the lihito house in view.

Why, certainly the fuinuce fires aro
again beginning to blaze. A repub
lican tictory in this country is uluuys
the source of business confidence and
prosperity. And the nctitity will not
be limited to the furnaces, either. It is
nlready felt In other departments of
trade. Etery ramifirntiou of industry
will soon feel the good influence. This
Is what the free traders so often oiei'
look. The brightening .furnaces and
forges will promote actitity in the coj.l
trade, nnd this in turn will increase the
consumption of articles manufactured
and sold by other dealers. A new it
dustry established or an old one n

to those immediately interested in it.

N" letter from Mr.
Harry Chant, of 211 Haskell Avenue,
-- ADom lourteen or nneen months m
I was working-with a ganeof men and happened
to say to one of them, ' I hope It will not rain as.
I have a Mr washing- to do for the children.
The man said, ' What is the matter with your
"For years my wife had been raftering from
what the doctors called prolapsus of uterus. She
was nervous, had cold hands and feet, palpita
tion, headache, backache, constipation, a disa
greeable drain, with bearing down pains; no ap
r:tite. She got so weak she could not get around,
am only a laborer so was always in debt wills
the doctors, and all for no good, as none did her
any good. We began to think that she was never
going to get well.1'
" I told this man what the doctors said was the
matter with her," and he said " ' did you ever hear
of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription V" "I told
him no, but I had tried so many patent medicines
that I was tired of them all, and besides I did not
have enough money to pay the doctor and tke
drug store. He said if I would get two r
three bottles and try them, and if it did not ao
my wife any good that he would pay for the med
icine I went to the drug store (Mr. Clawbera
on Elm Street), and bought a bottle. The first
and second did not seem to have much effect bnt
the third seemed to work like a charm She has
taken In all about thirteen bottles and she is to
day at stout and healthy as any woman in the
United States This is not the only case. When
ever I hear tell of any woman who is sick in the
neighborhood I jut send the book and paper that
is wrapped around etery bottle and that does the
business. I am no longer bothered about doing1
my own washing and cooking, for my wife can
do it all In one day and never seems tired or out
of spirits now."
