The Aug us virtually confesses
mat the democrats bad to put up
f zau to get Bryan to apeak Here
Common report is that $150 waa
raised in Kock Island and f 100 in
Moline. It must have made those
Rock Island democrats who carried
the heavier end of the log tired to
find that the Associated Press dis-
patches located that meeting in Mo
line and ignored Rock Island entire
ly. Morning Union.
bo it seems it has come to a pass
that Thk Akgls is obliged to stamp
every untrue utterance of irrational
republican orators an absolute false
hood to protect itself from the charge
of virtually confessing the truth of
all that they say. The case in point
is one where E. V. bweeney, of this
city, stated at Hampton that the
democrats were obliged to pay 1250
to get Mr. Bryan here. Thk'Akols
not realizing at the moment ho
keenly alert the republicans are this
vear to grasp at opportunties to clinch
false utterances, did not feel
the necessity of denying point blank
Mr. Sweeney s absurd statement, any
more than it did of declaring untrue
or even mentioning his equally ridic
ulous declaration mane at the aame
time that Bryan had refused to apeak
at towns in Indiana where his train
stopped and where he had been
booked to . speak, but where the
necessary bonus had not been put
up. One of Mr. Sweeney's utter
ances is as far fetched as the other.
It is a matter of fact that wherever
Mr. Bryan's train runs it is neces
sary to raise enough monev amon
democrats to pay for the train, as
the railroads are not tarnishing the
democrats trains for nothing this
year, and Mr. Sweeney does a great
injustice to the corporation be rep
resents in attributing to it the extor
tion of charging 250 to rnn the
Bryan train in here and out. The
Rock Island corporation attorney has
evidently gained his impression
from what the railroads allege to
charge the republicans in order to
tighten their grip by b'g show
ing that they are donating what
would amount to such enormous
urns to the campaign fund in the
gratuitous train service furnished on
all oocasions. As to Mr. Bryan re
fusing to speak in any Indiana town.
he has never failed day or night to
meet the people anywhere in this
broad land that he could get to, and
no town has been denied the privi
lege of seeing and hearing him be
cause it could not pay for the train.
Wherever be has managed to get to
the people of any city, or ham Int. he
has spoken to them and he has in
variably paid his way at that.
A to the Press t arallablllty.
As to the Associated Press report
ing the Bryan speech at Moline in
stead of Rock Island, it will cause no
remorse as long as the people of
both cities heard him, but the error
is not unexpected from an associ
tion which has been as partial aa the
Associated Press has throughout the
campaign. The particular part of
Bryan's speech here selected to be sent
out to the world showed the garbling
tactics employed by those on board
the train, who, through the courtesy
of Bryan, are taken over the country
with him, but who care nothing for
trnth or accuracy, or where or how
he speaks so that they can miscon
strue what he says. And to give out
the impression that be had given
Rock Island the go by, had evidently
the same motive as did the purpose
to make the report as little conspicu
ous as possible by sending it in with
a Monmouth date line. The entire
incident constituted a fair sample
of the unfair disposition of
every press association in the
country this var toward Bryan, and
it is on this account that he is anx
ioua to meet as many of the people
as possible that they may know him
as he is and not as he is reported to
be. The argus receives the reports
of both Associated Press and the
American Press association and it
has had reason to observe the parti
san tendency of both, the Associated
Press being extremely so. Day after
day as an instance, the reports are
burdened witn inconsequential visits
to McKialey of del galea from bis
immediate nelghbothood. while
Bryan's addresses to thousands are
dismissed with a few lines. Had
McKinley been abroad in the conn
try this year, instead of Bryan, the
Associated Press would have little
else to rive out to its customers but
the reports of his aaaresees.

That the Record postal card elec
tion is admittedly a failure is shown
in the fact that probably only 300,-
000 of the 750.000 ballots distributed
have been returned. The time for
receiving ballots expired at 10 a. m.
today, the grand total counted op to
last evening being 333.295. Tha
Illinois table shows that in Rock
Island county there were 53 votes cast
for Bryan and siu for Mcn.iniey. in
the table of 'Comparative changes we
find that of the 916 Mciuniey votes
44 of them were cast by persons who
claim to have voted for Cleveland in
1992, or a change of 15 per cent. Of
the 53 votes given to Bryan SO of the
voters state that they voted for Har
rison in 192. or over 37 per cent.
This gives a clear gain to Bryan of
32 per cent provided the ratio is
maintained by the actual vote.
