Hon. William A. Lynch of Can-
ton, a Gold Democrat,
TALKS ON BRYAN AND TRUSTS.
ttncnldcent Speech .Undo at Mmlo Hull,
Ilaltlmore, on October 25 Some Gbiiia
From n Splendid Aildicm DlioiiMlne.
llrynnlim mill In Fullucles.
Hon. William A. Lynch of Canton
is a Gold Democrat, and In 189G was a
Bturdy supporter of his fellow towns
man, William McKlnley. This year he
Is of the same way of thinking. He
was Invited by the Honest Money
Democratic Leaguo of Maryland to
speak at Music hall, Baltimore, on Oct.
25. His speech was humorous, but
forcible. Below are given a few of the
points he made:
I was very anxious to see If Mr. Bry
an would say anything on the money
question In his speech here, and I
could only discover one expression. He
said that It was s. great crime to teach
the American people to worship a gold
dollar. The next tfme Mr. Bryan
comes around hero I wish you would
find out, if you can, what kind of
crlmo it Is to teach the American peo
ple to worship 48 cents of silver.
There was another expression that
Mr. Bryan had Indulged In, In the
neighboring city of Frederick. He de
clared that it would be his purpose, If
elected to the presidency of the United
States which God forbid (applause)
that he would put the same kind of
clothes upon the big thieves that the
Republicans put upon the little
theleves. (Laughter and applause.) A
very proper sentiment.
In my anxiety, as a western man,
concerned about the conduct of an
other western man down in this east
ern country, I was wondering if It
were possible that Mr. Bryan had used
that same expression over in New
York when he was being entertained
by Croker and his friends. (Great
laughter and loud and long continued
applause.) I hope not; that would have
been an awfully bad break, wouldn't
it? (Laughter.) Just think of an ln
vited guest making the cold shivers
run down the back of his host.
(Laughter and applause.)
I have heard Mr. Bryan's prophe
cies, and have one of his last and most
momentous deliveries to the people In
the campaign of 189G, which I shall
take the liberty of reading to you:
"If McKlnley and the Republican
party are successful and put In power
for the next four years, wages will be
decreased, hard times will come upon
us and over the land (he was talking
to the farmers then), the price of
wheat will go down, and the price of
gold will go up. Mortgages on our
homes will be foreclosed by the money
lenders, shops and (now this hits
you) factories will close. Wo will
export no goods, and will Import from
foreign lands all the goods we use.
Thus will ruin, want aud misery be
with us." (Laughter.)
And of all this, how much have we
left? Naught but Bryan. (Laughter.)
There was a gentleman from Iowa, '
very eloquent speaker. He said, In a
speech out In my state, speaking of
Bryan's prophecies, that If old father
Noah, Instead of preparing for a
flood, had prepared for a drouth, and
had gotten up a scheme of irrigation
instead of an ark, he couldn't have
missed it wider than Bryan did.
(Laughter and applause.)
Well, we thank God that Mr. Bryan
Is a false prophet (applause), and we
only trust that the American people
will be no more easily deceived by his
false prophecies this year than they
were four years ago. (Applause.)
In 1873 we had a terrible financial
panic, which was followed by five
years of deep commercial and Indus
trial depression; we had the same in
1893, followed also by five years of de
pression. In 1878 fear of panic had
given way to confidence, and people
were beginning to do business and the
country woke up to the fact that the
producing establishments were not
able to supply the demand that was
rapidly developing. What was the re
sult? Take a keg of nails, which is
Just as good as anything to illustrate.
Now a keg of nails Is not a very lively
cricket, and yet In 1878 In five or six
weeks time it took a Jump from $1.70
to $5.40 per keg. Pig iron Jumped 100
per cent, in a short time and so every
thing In the line of manufactured pro
duct Jumped In 1878, 100, 200 and some
times 250 and 300 per cent.; for what
was true of iron and steel was true of
What happened In 1898? Precisely
the came thing. Mr. Bryan Implies
thatallofthlsrlse In prices In the last
two yeais occurred because of some
Institutions, formed In this country
aboit that time, which wo call trusts.
I say to you that the conditions which
prevailed in 1878 provalled in 1898 ex
cept that in 1878 there was not, as far
as I can remember, a trust in exist
ence. The conditions that prevailed in
1878 also prevailing In 1898, have
brought about the same result so far
as market prices are concerned. (Ap
plause.) In other words we have en
tered upon a period of declining prices.
And 1 think all who are engaged In
business, or manufacturing or mer
chandising, will agree that tho decllno
which snf Jo last winter,' or early in
tho spring, has continued right along
In nearly nil lines of trade.
What has brought about thl3 de
cllno? Tho demand has net dimin
ished as a rule, In fact It has been veiy
active in many lines all tliU year, but
wo know that aceGiu,ng to tho law of
supply and demand that un lncrosso
of demand or decrease of supply will
put up prices, and that a decrease of
demand or an Increase of supply will
f.ut them down. Now havo prices gone
down because the demand has de
creased or has tho supply Increased?
V'ho supply ho3 Increased and that very
rapidly and to n very great extent.
How has this been brought aiiouc?
Flist, because prices being very high
there was a great temptation for pro
ducers to Increase their moans of pro
duction and for new parties to go into
And this brings us to the formation
of these trusts, and ?want to be -vary
clear upon this point. I s.imetimc3
think people who know very little
about business matters do not know
what we nro talking about when wo
speak of trusts and trust corporations.
Wo see companies by ten's, twenties
and perhaps fifties, In the same line of
business, gathered together and put
Into largo companies. Why was this
done? The common belief Is that It
was done to prevent or at least dimin
ish the fearful competition which has
existed ever since 1893, and even be
fore, between manufacturing compa
nies In most lines of business, 'lhis
competition was very severe at times
and undoubtedly crippled many con
cerns, in fact destroyed many, and
those that were left undertook to get
together to as to avoid these difficult
ies. The people who formed these
trusts said they were doing so for tho
purpose of reducing the cost of pro
duction, pi eventing waste and In other
ways getting the benefit of producing
on a large scale. Now we need not
stop long over the causes. These
trusts grew up In large numbers and
to a prodigious extent. I do not know
how many there are certainly over a
hundred and they own and control
probably over one thousand mills,
manufactories and other producing
establishments scattered all over tho
Mr. Bryan says all of these trusts
must be destroyed, and that If he is
made president of the United States
he will drive them out of existence,
because, as he says, they come togeth
er for the purpose of creating monop
olies. Within two weeks I noticed a state
ment In one of the Pittsburg papers,
referring to the wire trust, to the ef
fect that the trust had a total capacity
for turning out wire rods that is the
shape of material Just before It is
drawn into wire of about 3,000 tons
per day, but that there were outside of
the trust several concerns which had
put themselves Into condition to make
wire rods, and were now increasing
their plants for that purpose to such
an extent that when the works now
under way are completed there would
be a total capacity, outside of the
trust, of 3,950 tons per day. This com
petition has sprung up within the last
few month3 with the result that the
price of fence wire, which the farmer
uses so extensively, has fallen 70
cents per 100 pounds, according to a
Mr. Bryan says he is a great friend
of the farmer and his soul is torn
with agony at the oppression of tho
farmer by the wire trust In putting up
the price of fence wire. The fact Is,
however, that fence wire would have
gone up In price probably as high as it
did a year or more ago if there had
not been a trust in existence, and now
It Is going down in spite of the trust!
It seems to me that the farmers would
prefer that the trust's wire mills be al
lowed to go on making wire and there
by compete with the outside mills.
how about the workmen employed in
the wire trust's rod and Iron mills?
Certainly these manufacturers cannot
go on employing their men if the trust
itself Is destroyed.
Now, I believe that tho question,
What shall we do with the trusts? can
be reduced to a few words. For the
present let them alone; prices are
coming down, and they will come
down. faster and more surely if the
consumer gets the benefit of the pro
duction of the trusts as well as the
production of concerns outside of tho
trusts; while if wo destroy all the
trusts those outside of the trust will
merely take advantage of the decrease
in supply and prices will go up. (Ap

Cinamon bears are causing conster
nation among farmers and ranchmen
In the vicinity of the Spanish Peaks,
south of La Veta, along the border of
Las Animas and Huerfano counties,
says tho Denver "Post." Denver and
Rio Grande railway officials have late
ly received many reports of the depre
dations of these shaggy brown deni
zens of the mountains. Winter ha3
cast its cold white mantle over the
lofty peaks, and the presence of the
glistening snow has convinced Bruin
that the summer is done.
The keen, penetrating air has sharp
ened the appetites of the huge animals,
and now that the berries have disap
peared they are seeking flesh and
blood for food.- Down from the lone
ly defiles and rock-strewn canons come
the furry creatures with soft-footed,
tireless tread. Their keen noses scent
the barnyards from afar. Instinct
tells those which have never seen a
calf that it must be good to eat from
its very smell.
Over the half-wild pastures along
the catle trails and rough roads trot
the bears in search of food. A single
night usually suffices for the Journey,
as a healthy bear and all bears are
healthy except when locked up In me
nageries can travel many mlle3 be
tween sundown and daylight. Quietly
and full of purpose the strong, supple
fellows enter the farmyards.
Usually they hunt alone, but several
ranchmen have found tho tracks of
four different 'bears In the morning
their places havo been visited. Noise
lessly they pick their ways about the
corrals and barns while the owner and
his household are asleep. Suddenly
a pair of those piercing eyes esple3 a
i pet calf. He trots hurriedly over to It
and sticks his sharp claws Into the un
suspecting sleeper. As the startled
calf snorts and scrambles to Its feet
the savagery of the bear becomes man
ifest. For centuries Bruin has subsisted on
what he could fljnd, and many a feeling
of suspicion and fear has been over
come by that cruel sensation of hun
ger. In a 'moment he strikes down the
trembling calf with swift and powerful
blows. He seizes It in his great Jaws
and easily carries It away some dis
tance. There he makes a meal, or per
haps takes his prey far back Into the
mountains before devouring it. It de
peds upon his hunger, the size of the
slain animal and the strength of the
bear. When there aro several bears
they feast close to the spot where
their victim was killed, and they al
ways quarrel over the division of
spoils and sometimes their fierce
growling awakens a member of the
household and results In a dead Bruin.
Several bears have recently been killed
near La Veta. Sometimes the watch
dog gives warning and tho bear flees
away into the night. Sometimes he
stays and It shot. But dften the
prowler hecures tho calf, pig or sheep
without alarming the' household. Oc
casionally heare aro seen In tho day
time. A few days ago Jim E J wards, a well
known hunter lo3t a valuable fox
hound. A largo "brown bear killed the
dog before Edward's eyes, and as ho
was armed only with a small shotgun
for squirrel, he could not prevont the
eicape of the animal. Tho hound In
sisted on following the bear and nip
ping at Its flanks. Suddenly the huge
bear turned and, with a slnglo angry
blow, felled tho hound lifeless. Hur
riedly shambling off it disappeared In
the timber. An older and wiser hound
know better "than to attack tho bear.
Returning liome, Edwards secured n
rlflo and with a companion and a
couple of hounds, retraced his steps In
search of tho bear. Finally they found
tho trail and followed It all day.
Camping that night, they resumed tho
chase next day and finally tracked tho
bear to a holo In the rdeks. This den,
high up on tho mountain side, amid
tho most rugged scenery, bore tho
signs of many 'bears. There wore num
erous tracks of varying size, and evi
dently more thon one bear lived with
in. A big roaring file was kindled at
the holo as far lipids as possible. All
day long tho smoke poured into tho
den, and lato In tho afternoon Ed
wards and his companions noticed the
smoke Issuing from the rocks some
'Hasty Investigation revealed to tho
disappointed hunters the presence of
another hole. The den had two en
trances and the bears had quietly es
caped. The numerous bears that have been
seen close tp the towns and the extent
