Under Democratic administra
tions since the war, strike were all
against a reduction of wages, under
Republican administrations all have
been for higher wages and shorter
hours with same pay.
If the Democratic party had con
tinued in power in this country
from 1S60 on to now. all labor in
this country would have become
slave labor or tbe white labor rele
gated to the "poor white trash,
clans. Remember the Dred-Scott
decision of the Democratic Supieme
Court ot tiie United Slates back in
the I'll. ck.
The only time United States
troops were used aainut laboring
jncii in all the history of the coun
try was it) the labor troubles in
Chicago, when laboiing men were
striking agaimt a reduction of wag
es. The troops were tent there
by President Grover Cleveland,
over the protckt of Gov, Altgild,
governor of the state of Illinois.
Mr. Roosevelt nor any other repub
lican president will ever do such
tiling while the government lasts.
This act of President Cleveland
overrode the last vestige of the dem
ocratic doctrine of states rights.

audience, in the park. The even
ing v.a pleasant and about all the
people in Uich Hill and the stir,
rounding country were out to hear
him, and he was given the very
Lest of attention. He is a picas
ant speaker, with good voice, ele
gant diction, and a How of Ian-
guage that is as pleasant to tne
listener as it is natural to the
speaker. There is no halting, no
hesitation, no strutish pomposity,
but the constant mark of the ac
complished' orator, who knows
what he wants to say and says it
in the best of plain English.
But there is evidently a screw
loose in the Democratic machinery
Mr, Bryan started in by compli
menting the Democracy of Mis
souri on what he called their fidel
ity to principle, and then put in a
strong pica fcr Mr. Folk (no
cheers) and for Mr. Cook (cheers)
then for Mr. DeArmond, (cheers)
then for representation in the leg
islature for the sake of Senator
Cockrcll, (cheers), and then be
gan his apology for Mr. Parker.
(Not a cheer.)
Mr. Bryan said he (Parker) was
not his choice for the nomination,
but didn't say that his nomination
was gotten through crookedness,
or that he was the choice of Wall
street, etc., but pleaded with his
Democratic friends to vote for him
anyway, as it was the best the
Democrats could do under tbe cir
cumstances, and then after this
election they could begin to come
back to the principles in which the
people were so much interested.
Mr. Bryan plead with the labor
ing man to vote for Parker because
the Democratic party was the
friend of the laboring man, for
getting that the Republican party
was the means of elevating the
occupation of the laboring man
above that of the slave; forgetting
that the Republican party enacted
the homestead law in the interests
of the laboring man; lorgetting
that the Republican party gave
them the first eight hour law ever
put upon fhe statute books; for
getting that the policy of the Re
publican party has made the busi
ness of farming a profession, and
the skilled workman a first-class
business, so that labor of all kinds
has become honorable, and the
idler regarded as an excressence
upon society, fast bringing about
the truth of that scripture which
says he that toils not neither shall
Mr. Bryan is greatly interested
in tiie dark ,-kinned races over in
the Philippines, and their self
government, but nt a word for
the native Americans in our midst
who arc governed without their
consent and taxed without repre
sentation even in the legislature
of their native states, not to lay in
cotigrcss. He did not tell his
hearers that the Philippines have
far more voice iu their own gov
ernment under the National Re
publican administration, than do
the negroes ot the southern states
under Stale Democratic adminis
trations Mr. Bryan is dreadfully afraid ol
a large standing army and Koose
veil's, awful warlike spirit. We
believe it was Washington who
said, 'In time of peace prepare
for war." Do our people want

Mr. Bryans speech was good
Democratic speech alright until he
got to telling his hearers why they
should support Parker, then it
was twist and screw, curve and

job on his hands, but had to make
the best cf it. And he did.
Mr. Bryan's reputation ss a
speaker is well deserved. - We
never heard a speaker we could
listen to with more pleasure. We
heard him once before and formed

him Monday night and had our es

Here ia what Mr. Bryan said
about the gold standard just after
his hrst defeat fur the presidency:
"I believe that the gold standard
is a conspiracy against the human
race. I would no more join the
ranks of those who propose to fas
ten it upon the American people
than I would enlist in an army

" In iSyS we visited the city of
Nw Albany. Ind., just across the
Ohio river from Louisville. Ky.,
when it was yet suffering' from the
disastrous effects of the Cleveland
freetrade administration. Then,
whole blocks that had been occu
pied by manufactory establishments
built up under the protection pol
icy, were in ruins. The glass
works occupying about 5 acres
were dismantled and the building
given over to the owls and bats.
Tbe two rolling- mills that occu
pied nearly as much more space,
were abandoned, the machinery
in ruin and tbe buildings left
in sticks and stumps. The woolen
and cotton mills idle and the stock
holders contending over their ficti
tious value and all other butinest
in about the same condition so that
it made us feel as if we never want
ed to see the old town again. We
then never went out 011 the, streets
but we thought of Goldsmiths de
serted village, and when we met
an old citien we thought of the
deserted village and the school mas
ter who talked sat long and learned
ly to tbe people that "still the won
der crew Ihat one small head could
hold all be knew." We came
away from the old town with a sad
heart for some of the happiest days
of our life had been spent there but
we felt we never wanted to see it
again. But we went again last
month. The occasion of our going
was an invitation from the board of
trade, to attend a home coming of
We concluded as they thought us
of enough importance to be invited
that we would not let them surpass
us in courtesy and would go. Wc
went, such a change in the city we
never dreamed of. Under the re-
restored policy of the republican
party, the iron mills are again at
work. The glass works are active

ing is going on as it never did be

out and taking in parks and catch

and in its progress and prosperity
has become decidedly republican.
They have, iu keeping with these
improvements, a board of trade head

ed C. C. Brown, as president, and
an old bachelor, not the handsom

only love seems to be the city of his

city, and whose tvsry tKurt ittmil
Frank James, the notorious guer
rilla and, after the war. bandit and
train robber, at the reunion of Quan
trcll's men at Independence last
Saturday announced in a speech
that hereafter he is through with
Democracy and signalize his seeing
of the light by voting for Roosevelt.
Frank James has been a very, very,
bad man, but if he is sorry and re
pentant we see no reason why the
Republican party cannot find room
tor him. He will about fit tbe hole
made when Web Davis pulled out.
It is believed that the President
and every member of his Cabinet
are away' from the city, yet every
thing runs on smoothly and the im
portant matters which are continu
ally coming up for consideration
and adjudication, are rapidly dis
posed of. The flutter of excitement
over which is now called the
"Shanghai incident," has passed
away from the Navy department,
and Admiral Dewey will be per
mitted to finish his vacation at Sar
atoga. Since both the United
States torpedo destroyrr, Chauncey
and the Japanese warship, have
quietly slipped out ot the Chinese
Port, with no blood shed, the inci
dent is considered "closed." It
was an incident which was never
open, for no American interests
were put in jeopardy, and the U.
S. boat simply went into the har
bor, as of aforetime, to land and
receive the mails. Tbe story that
her decks were "cleared for ac
tion," was a bit of color introduced
by the truth telling Shanghai cor
respondent. The officials at the
Navy department since hearing
from the President, say that the
American squadron in Chinese wa
ters is not charged with the protec
tion ot Chinese neutrality. The
orders from this city have been to
keep hands off, and not involve the
United States, even collaterally, in
the far eastern conflict. This ac
tion on the pait ot Mr. Ruosevclt,
who is accused of carrying a "big
stick', and being anxious to use it,
rather disconcerts those who are
waging a personal campaign on the
theory that the President is an un
Another ltryan Haying.
Mr. Bryan in his speech last Mon
day night begged and pleaded with
bis hearers to voie for Parker.
Here is what he said in hit newt
paper about the manner of hit nom
ination just after the St. Louis con
vention. "I have nothing to take back; I
have nothing to withdraw of the
things I said against the methods
pursued to advance Parker's candi
dacy. It was a plain and deliberate
attempt to deceive the party. The
New ork pi ttform was vague, and
purposely so, because the advocate!
of Judge Paiker were trying to se
cure votes from among the people
who would have opposed bis views
had they have known them. The
nomination wasstccureJ, therefore,
crooked and indefensible methods."
Is a man who seciuet a "nomi
nation by crooked and indefensible
methods" a tit man to sleet Prtii
