The Shifty Bryan.
Mr. llryan spoke Saturday, and this
report is sent of a scene that occurred:
A man in the audience inquired how
it would be any easier, under free coin
ape, to get silver from the silver kings
than it is to cet gold from the gold
Mr. Bryan replied: "Is that all the
difficulty my friend has, or has he
some other I can explain at the samo
"My friends, the gentleman has
asked a very simple question, and I am
glad that it is asked, because it will
show you what tiny things can be
stumbling blocks for those who do not
want to step over them."
"The gentleman wants to know how
ive are going to get money from the
silver kings. I want him to remember
this: That he has two arguments (if
he represents the gold standard) which
' I would like to have him reconcile
when he has time. They tell us that the
silyer king will convert what is only
worth CO cents into a dollar and make
the difference. That is one of the
troubles, is it not?"
The man: "It is."
Mr. Bryan: "Answer, then, when he
has done that, it will be a fifty-cent
dollar, that is another difficulty, is it
"Now, when you have time to think
abour it, I want you to try to figure
out how that can be a hundred-cent
dollar long enough for the miner to
make 50 cents on it, and how it would
then become fifty-cent dollar for all
the rest of the people. The only way
in which the mines can make that
profit is by converting a piece of silver
now worth 50 cents into a dollar which
will be worth 100 cents. If, when he
pets through he has only converted a
fifty-cent piece of silver into a fifty
cent dollar he has not made anything
by the operation."
How shifty this isf IIow thoroughly
characteristic it is of Mr. Bryan.
The man asked the question, "How
would it be any easier to get silver
Irom the silver kings than gold from
the gold kings?" Read all that fol
lows, from beginning to end, and no
where will you find an answer. In
stead of answering, Mr. Bryan led the
mind of the questioner away, just as a
small peitifogger in court attempts to
divert tho issue, got some great cheer
ing from the crowd, by starting a new
question, aud in the noise escaped the
interrogatory that had been pro
pounded. Commercial Tribune.
At Ilrjan'a Home.
A correspondent at Lincoln, Neb.
Bryan's home says, under date of
September 22: "I live in a block con
taining 12 dwellings, in 11 of which
McKinley's picture is displayed in the
windows Iq this block there are 19
voters of whom 10 are for McKinley,
two for Bryan, and one doubtful. In
Bryan's block there are nine houses,
seven of which displayed McKinley's
picture. The poll of Bryan's ward
(tho Fifth) gives McKinley, 201; Bryan,
71; doubtful, 18;. unknown, 11. This
county (Lancaster) will give McKinley
2,200 majority. For every Republican
who votes for Bryan, two Democrats
will voto for McKinley."

Free and unlimited coinage of silver
will certainly result in:
1. A dollar whose purchasing power
will be exactly tho bullion value of tho
silver It contains, as in Mexico. This
may be 00 cents or a little more, or
possibly less. It depends mainly upon
the output of tho sllvcV mines of the
2. A rise in tho price of groceries,
clothing, fuel and rents, to keep pace
with the decline of tho purchasing
power of tho dollar. This is the case
in Mexico, whero standard articles of
consumption cost twice as much as in
tho United States.
3. The closing of countless factories,
shops and stores in thei panic which
Mr. Bryan admltsjmust come atfirst.'
This would throwhundredB-of, thou
sands out of employment.
i. The suspension of a great number
of sayings banks, building and loan
associations, fraternal Insurance orders
and insurance companies, because of a
decline in the investments in which
they keep their funds.
Mr. Bryan concedes all these things.
What 5 does he promise by way of
More ubundant employment after
the panic is over and perhaps better
wages when business becomes food
and employers are disposed to pay
more, or can be forced to do so.
That is, if tho workingmen can sur
vive the panic which will throw them
out of employment, cause the loss of
all their savings and raise the prices of
everything they must buy, they may
have a chance to get work again and
their pay may be advanced in the
cheap money until it is equal to what
they got under the gold standard.
IIow an Klectrlo Current Is Measured.
When electricity came to be sold, it
was necessary to measure in commer
cially. To this tank Edison set him
self in the course of his development of
that remarkable 6eries of inventions
which gavo to the world a perfect
lighting system. Electricity can be
measured by the work it does, either
chemically or mechanically. Edison's
chemical meter depends on the simple
fact that one ampere of electricity will
deposit from sulphate of zinc under
standard conditions a definite weight
of metal. This type of meter is, in
fact, a small electro-plating battery,
through which a certain proportion of
tho current used is carried thepropor
tion being .accurately determined by
the relative size of the meter wires
and shunts with the result that one
of the two plates is decreased aud the
other increased in weight, according to
the amount of current consumed with
in the house. This meter does not
give a visible record, which is an ad
vantago of the mechanical meters.
Of these there are many varieties,
those most in use in this country being
the Thomson-Houston watt-meter and
the Westinghouse or Schallenberg
amnere-moter, both of which are small
motors, driven faster or slower as tho
demand for current is greater or less,
and communicating their action to a
train of wheels with dials like those of
the gas-meter, so they may be verified
by burning a given number of lamps
for an hour and comparing the dials at
the beginning and end of tho time.
The meter record is taken usually once
a month, by the supply companies, and
bills are based upon these records with
as much certainty as though electricity
were a visible thing. Harper's Maga

"If We Were Offered Food Tinctured

The advocates of free silver Popocracj
havo been claiming the Ohio Farmer,

and Sewall. As a matter of fact thi
paper is strictly non-partisan and verj
clearly resonts the claim that it hoi

"We also are firm in tho belief that a

"Let patriotism and tho desiro for thn

It is very easy to read the meaning of
this significant declaration. The Farmer
is for protection, ami while it believes
in bimetallism, it is quito apparent that
it does not consider bimetallism as feasi
ble without an international agreement,
such as tho Republican party is pledged
to. It is equally certain that it is not
ready to follow the anarchistic teaching
of Bryan and Populism.
