MONEY THE ISSUE, NOT TARIFF
Read His Letter and the Platform
Which He Accepts.
Lincoln, Sept. 9.-W. .T. Bryan to
day sent to the members of the noti
fication committee of the Democratic
national convention his formal letter
NO SKCOND TERM.
He announced that It is his fixed de
termination not under any circum
stances to be a candidate for re-election,
in case lie is elected this time.
He indorses unqualifiedly every plank
of the national platform.
NO FEDERAL INTERFERENCE.
On the subject of federal interfer
ence he says. "While the United
States guarantees to every state a Re
publican form of government, and is
empowered to protect each state
against invasion, it Is not authorized
to interfere in the domestic affairs of
any state, except upon application of
the executive when the legislature
cannot be convened. This provision
rests upon the sound theory that the
people of each state, acting through
their legally chosen representatives,
are, because of their more intimate
acquaintance with local conditions,
better qualified than the president, to
judge of the necessity for federal as
sistance." NO LIFE TERMERS.
On the subject of the civil service
he says: "A permanent office holding
class Is not in harmony with our in
TARIFF NOT THE ISSUE.
In reference to the tariff he says it
is not necessary to discuss the tariff
question at this time. Whatever
may be the individual views of citi
zens as to the relative merits of pro
tection and tariff reform, all must
recognize that until the money ques
tion is fully and finally settled. The
American people will not consent to a
consideration of any other Important
question. Taxation presents a prob
lem which in some form is continually
present and the postponement of defi
nite action upon it involves no sacri-
of personal opinion on political prin
ciple, but the crisis presented by the ,
financial conditions cannot be post
poned. Information From Cuba.
London, Sept. 0. The Times Tues
day morning publishes a long letter
from its navana correspondent, deal
ing with the state of afiairs in Cuba,
in the course of which lie says:
"Careful study for the past four
months convinces mc that, despite
serious losses, the rebels are holding
their own against the troops. The
wealthy agricultural districts are now
completely under rebel control, and
the whole sympathy of the Islanders
Is with the rebels. Even Havana,
which Is more Spanish than any other
town or district is permeated with
animosity toward Spanish rule, and is
honey-combed with Intriguers on be
half of the rebellion.
"It is quite false to call It a color
struggle. In the fighting rankssof
the insurgents the proportion is 70jper
cent whites to 30 per cent negroes."
Still Greater Gains.

Intelligence and forco of character,
who are doing their own thinking and
who do not propose that anybody shall
dlctato their politics or sell their vote

last Saturday, and started a small or
ganization of McKlnlyltcs. Tho
Bryan club is ready to moot them in
debate and is not afraid of tho Issue.

faces of tho poor, mako a profit out of
the necessities of their fellownien by
lending money at exorbitant rates,
and who devour widows' houses, It Is
all tho Bryan men ask for. It is a
pretty good advertisement of tho class
of men who oppose silver coinage and
tho reasons therefor, A former Re
publican said to mc tho other day that
