BRYAN THE MAN
Bryan has beon nominated.
This statement In ItsoU Is suffi
cient to Instill confidence Into the
hearts of the Democrats and at tho
same time to cause a shudder to the
momberB of other parties especially
to those who are on the ticket
Despite .tho opposition wblch has

strength. In the national convention
In Denver to make his nomination,
and thlB .too In the face of the fact
that In two previous campaigns ho
lod the party and in both was de
feated. The reconl of Mr. Bryan Is In
deed the marvel of tho ago and It Is
doubtful whether It will ever be
equaled again In the world's his
tory. Por twelve years he baa held
tho center of the stago In Demo
cratic national politics, not only
that but ho has been .recognized an
one of the bralnest unen In tho coun
try or In the world today, ale is not
a man whoso Ideas have been bound
down to any ono subject. Politics
Is not tho only avenue In which he
has won fame. As a lecturer he
holds the foremost mace in tho
country. (None can draw do largo
nn audlenco and hold Its attention
bo completely as can Mr. Bryan. In
an Intellectual way ho Is a giant
and as a leader in religious mat
tors thoro are few In tho ministry
.who are his equals. During his
career as a public man, during his
two campaigns for the presidency
and his campaign, for the third 'enormous difference in prices hero and
nomination not a word has over Ihbroad there Is to be a further In

Inent man has died, tho people
awake to tho fact that he possessed
ability and lovable qualities, but
never before has a man who has
suffered tho political reverses which
Mir. Bryan has suffered, held the
esteem amounting almost to admira
tion and adoration that ho has.
From each defeat ho has arisen to
a higher love) In tho estimation of
tho people and from each battle he
has emerged with tho scars which
mark the hero and only serve to
urge him on to greater deeds and
It matters not what the outcome
of the coming election ehall be, his
tory will record of Mr Bryan that
ho was one or the most able and
withal tho most remarkable man
this country has over produced.
Somo of .the Republican papora
aro endaevoring to mako a great
deal of political capital out of the
Oarber-Johnson arfalr. They will
have a hard task of disrupting the
Democratic party along those lines
when Bryan Is at the head of the
Bryan may not be thd only man
who could be nominated for the
presidency after having been de
feated twice, but ono thlnjg Is cer.
tain ho is the only man who ever
has accomplished the feat.
President Roosevelt has added
the name of Congressman Hobon to
the Ananias club. Ho says ho never
said what dlobson says h". said about
a war with. Japan. So there now.
President Roosevelt inay have
forgotten that Hobson Is a South,
em man when he politely called
htm a liar.
It did not take very long to make
the nomination nfter the other
work of tho convention had been
Bryan received 1D0 1.2 more votes
than Taft In the conventions If
this wero an Indication, thoro would
be many Jubilant Democrats today.
It Is now nettled that William
will be the name of tho next presi

will object to being called "BUI,"
Now listen for the predictions of
Hryan's defeat becauso he was nom

man to '.head tho ticket, but two

What Is "a reasonable profit" for
the Industrial-Trusts to charge over
and above the difference between the
oo.-it of production at homo and
abroad? The Republican managers who
are hand and glove with tho protect

know, but aro afraid to Inform the
voters, for the Republican platform de
''In all tariff legislation the true
principle of protection Is best nialn-jgreS3
talned by the Imposition of such duties
as will equal the difference between
the cost of production at homo and
abroad, together with a reasonablo

As tho present tariff undoubtedly
upholds ''the truo principle of protec

tion at home and abroad" and has al-

would think even tho friends of pro-,
tcctlonlsm .would .be satisfied. But It
appears from what the Republican
tilntfnrm ilnolnroc Hint nn inn nf tlilrt
puuncans are successful, .uy increasing
tho present tariff duties, so that on
top of the profits already enjoyed,
there shall be added enough more to
ensure n ''reasonable profit." It Is
the evident Intention of our Republl-
ca ntarlff tinkers to allow the trusts
and protected Interests to say how
much tho incroase shall be and as we
all know they aro not bashful In their
Ideas of what Is ''reasonable."
Under this Ronubllcan plan of tariff
revision "Immediately aftor election,"
iand no doubt It cannot be too Immed
iate forjthe trusts and protected In
terests, the present plight of tho
American people will bo comfort, pleas
ure and affluence compared to what
tho future will bring, If the voters al.
low the Republican revisionists and
their trust friends full sway.
Tho boast of the Republloins that
their policies have carried the coun
try safely through the panic, and
that business Is rapidly reviving, does
not seem to agree with the facts. For
Instance, the ynlted States Cast Iron
Pipe Foundry Company, known as tho
Pipe Trust, has Just made Its report
to Its stockholders which shows very
disappointing results. Tho President
of tho compfiny says In his report:
'During November, H907, business
absolutoly stopped ;tho company did
not lose Its business. There was no
"When there was added to this nat
ural condition the depression which
was caused by the pUnlc ,tho result
was a stagnation such as has never
been known In the history of tho cast
Iron plpo business In this country. Not
only wlas there a cessation of busl.
ness and a sharp fall in prices In
November, but there was a declining
marketing all through the winter and
early spring months."
But tho roport tries to encourago
the stock-holders, although no divi
dend Is declared even on the preferred
stock, by saying ''that with tho open
ing ot spring buHlne&s has Improved."
