TKDDV ON HARD THIS
Straight From the Shoulder
Talk in Wisconsin.
Confronted Not Only With a I'ara-
ISWB! mount Issiu-. Hut An lm-f^B
t&IZ^ |mediate One. p- amou.
In the course of his speech at La
Ooaae, Win., Governor Roosevelt, re
publican nominee for vice pre«dent,Mud:
"We are confronted in this campaign
with two issues, of which they say one
is paramount and the other is immedi
ate. The paramount inane in militarism
and imperialism, and the immediate
issue in free silv< r. They have insisted
an little as possible upon the latter.
They have been for it, but not ho much
for it an to frighten the gold men away.
You can not be half-heartedly for a de
preciated dollar. You mny find diffi
culty in making up your mind. At
KaiiHiih City they hnd great difficulty in
determing what to do in legard to the
financial plank of the national platform.
If you remember, they were only able to
decide what they thought of the cur
rency by calling on Hawaii to cast the
deciding vote for them. You remember
they Htood about even until Hawaii's
representatives made up their minds for
them and enabled them to declare that
they had f>2 per cent of faith in a 48
per cent dollar.
In Reach of the Dollar.
"They have expressed much alarm an
to whether the dollar should be put
above the man or the mun ahead of the
dollar, whatever that may mean. ])ur
ing the pant four years the republican
party haH confined itself to the common
sense action of putting men within reach
of the dollar and making the dollar
worth a hundred cents in gold when we
pet within reach of it, ami they left, to
him to decide whether it should be before
or behind. It is a good rule to let well
enough alone. Don't let it be our fault
in destroying the prosperity that we
now have. Hard times have fallen upon
each of you men, but they are a good
deal harder upon the wife and children
of each man. These are the people who
suffer most, but when hard times come
all suffer somewhat. Now, for the sake
of yourself and for the sake of your
wives and families and for the well being
of your country, I appeal to you for the
re election of l'resideut McKinley. Ido
not care whether that is called an im
mediate issue or a paramount issue, it
is certainly important.
"As for the issues they raise in tboee
twin phantoms of militarism and im
perialism about which we are asked to
be ho frightened as to forget civic good
faith, material prosperity and the honor
of the ting, I have a won! to say. I will
talk about militarism. I am informed
that 1 have exaggerated somewhat the
relative proportion of the army to the
people. We now have regular soldiers
in the army in the proportion of just
■SO 100 of a regular soldier to each thou
sand people in the land, and the amount
ol tyranny of which you are in danger
is represented by that fractional amount
of a man to the corresponding fraction
al amount of the population of the
country. You could raise in this state
of Wisconsin over night enough men to
overwhelm instantly the entire regular
army of the United States. Sometimes
it is difficult to argue a question because
the statement of it is argument enough.
We have no larger a proportion of sol
diers to the population now than we had
one century ago during the presidency
of the elder Adams. We have less than
we had 30 years ago when there were
hostile Indians to tight on the plains.
In 1870 there was more militarism than
now, because militarism was caused by
an outbreak of the Sioux, the Comancbes
aud the Arapahoes. There is no more
danger from the soldiers now than then.
The army here in this republic is made
up of men who serve perhaps two yearß
at a time, and then they come home to
a civil life. The regular army is the
servant of the people, and is no more a
menace to your liberties than is the po
lice force in this city. You are in just ac
much danger of militarism from the
present regular army as you are that
your mayor will set up as dictator with
his 29 policemen, or whatever the num
"You remember in 18(U you were
threatened with the defeat of Abraham
Lincoln. The defeat of Lincoln would
have been the undoing of the bloody
work of the war. It were better to fail
to elect him in 1860 than to have failed
in 1804. It is the greatest crisis now
that has been since then. It would be
better to have elected Mr. Bryan four
years ago and to have suffered the
grinding miseries. It would have been
better to have elected him then than
now, when we have set our hands to the
task, than to bring the misery upon
ounHves and leave a legacy of shame
and dishonor for our children who come
"What the republican party wishes is
that the lawn shall be so executed in
this country, aud the rights of the peo
ple so upheld, tbat no man and no com
bination of men shall wrong or be
wronged; that the private individual
shall have the freest scope given his own
head and heart and hand; that he may
work out his own fate as his forefathers
worked it out. It is not possible for the
wisest administration to secure favor
able conditions under all circumstances.
It is possible for it to do as has been
done under President McKiuley—to se-

cure such conditions that the average

success for himself."
The Political Situation.
Chicago, Sept. 15 — The exHct nature
of the campaign conducted by Mr:
Bryan and the various parties that are
following him with more or less regu
larity is rapidly disclosing itself. It in
evident on the face of things—and none
the less certain from an inside knowledge
of the situation at democratic head
quarters —that the Hryan speech of ac
ceptance at Indianapolis, devoted to
what he called imperialism, was intended
to throw dust in the eyes of the people
for a week or two. Then came the ac
ceptance of the silver republican nomi
nation at which more or less solemn
event, free silver was naturally discussed.
That was calculated noj to come too
suddenly upon those who presumably
were willing to accept Bryan because he
thought the republic wfis going to pieces,
and just early enough and forcibly
enough upon the silver republicans to
make them think, in turn, that 10 to 1
in paramount now just as it was four
years ago. Third came the populist
nomination, which Mr. Bryan accepted
again in the name of the dear people,
discussing on this ocasion the trusts, in
addition, of course, to the woes of the
This plan of making three issues para
mount one after the other was doubtless
deliberately conceived; and many of Mr.
Bryan's devotees still consider that it
may be successful. The weight of evi
dence, however, is to the contrary. A
few gold democrats, naturally free trad
ers years ago and now natural born
mugwumps who don't quite want to
support McKinley and Roosevelt and
yet haven't anywhere else to go (but
out) may have been influenced to favor
Bryan by the Indianapolis speech, pos
sibly a thousand of these all told, at
least not more than a thousand in the
fighting ground of the east.
On the silver proposition which was
stated to the silver republicans to be the
paramount issue, Mr. Bryan is clear to
the bad. There have been scores of
prominent deflections among the silver
republicans of the western country away
from Bryan; so many of them iH fact
that the closest observers in Colorado,
Idaho, and even Utah declare that those
states, formerly pronounced for silver,
will go republican. This is not too
much to expect; and the republicans will
work for those states tooth and nail.
The game of playing one paramount
issue against the other, according to the
locality where Mr. Bryan happens to be
accepting a presidential nomination
simply will not work. The republicans
on the spot and the republicans every
where else have known all about it frota
the first; and they are fully prepared.
Voters only need to ask questions to be
satisfied—satisfied in reference to any
political proposition whatever that it
is possible to discuss.
Wm. J. Bryan has said: "The found
ers of the republic were anti expansion
ists.'' These are some of the facts of
Washington urged the acquisition of
Hamilton's views—"We ought to look
to the possession of Florida and Louisi
Jefierson declared for extensive empire
and self government: and acquisition of
Jackson said—"Never cede any land
or boundary of the republic but always
add to it, thus extending freedom."
Buchanan said—"Expansion is the
future policy of our country and only
cowards fear and oppose it."
Douglas' views—"As fast, as our inter
ests and destiny require additional terri
tory I am in for it."
Benjamin Franklin advocated the ac
quisition of Canada."
Binger Herman of Oregon, commip
siouer of the general land office, said a
few days ago in a speech in that state:
"Mr. Bryan says .he republican pnrty
'puts the dollar before the man,' and we
take him to mean what he nays. The
republican administration in the last
four yeare has put more dollars before
the man than he ever saw before, and
the best part of it is that when we put
that dollar before the man there is 100
•ents in the dollar. One-fifth of the
world's gold today is in the United

Thirty Years of Suffering.
"I suffered for thirty years with di
arrhoea and thought I was past being
cured," says John S. Halloway, of
French Camp, Miss. "I had spent bo
much time and money and suffered so
much that I had given up all hopes of
recovery. I was so feeble from the effects
of the diarrhoea that I could do no
kind of labor, could not even travel, but
by accident I was permitted to find a
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy, and after taking
several bottles 1 am entirely cured of
that trouble. lam so pleased wit?' lie

Still More Counterfeiting.
The secret service has unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a large quantity of bogus bills, which
are so cleverly executed that the average
person would never suspect them of be
ing spurious. Things of great value are
always selected by counterfeiters for im
itation, notably the celebrated Hostet
ter'e Stomach Bitters, which has many
imitators but no equals for indigestion,
dyspepsia, constipation, nervousness
and general debility. The bitters sets
things right in the stomach, and when
the stomach is in good order it makes
good blood and plenty of it. In this
manner the bitters get at the seat of
strength and vitality, and restore vigor
to the weak and debilitated. Beware of
