of the l.ryan ersiiasion it is highly

end. If the average citizen could
believe half that is contained in this
platform he would conclude that the
Uepublican party had on foot an
avowed plan to wreck the country and
make slaves of every citizen in it.
But thinking people are not so easily
hoodwinked. The protestations of
the Bryanites look all right, the lofty
language is calculated to impress
people who are carried away more by
what comes out of a man's mouth
than what is in bis head, but when
people compare all this talk with
what the party did when it was in
power, they can only conclude that
the platform is simply in the nature
of a grand stand play for votes.
