In one of his most pompous and labored speeches Bryan says: "You ask me why I know this cause is true. I can give you many good reasons, but one is sufficient that every enemy to good government is against free silver." Just read that over again and then take a look at the statesman of America who are coinage of V-7 silver. It reveals the of the man. demagogis.m The republican campaign in the state is being conducted very aggressively, and the managers at the headquarters at Lincoln are confident of the success of both the national and the state ticket?. From now until election every county will be supplied with all . the speakers that can be handled by the local committees. This is a campaign of education, and that always means republican success. A. E CADY, the republican CaHi;Xa man William J. Bryan is we need but date for congress, is making a very aggressive and telling canvass in this district, and there is a bright prospect of him overcoming the majority which the demopops have had for the past six years. At every place at which Mr. Cady speaks he makes votes, ior the peo ple recognize readily that he is a brainy and brilliant man; a man far superior in all respects to Ton silitis Bill Green. With Mr. Cady representing this district at Wash ington, measures which effect the welfare of the people of western Nebraska will receive the proper attention. Unlike Kern, he will not be simply a "seat warmer." The Souh Omaha Daily Sun, a free silver paper, refers as follows to Generals Alger, Howard, Tanner and others who have been making a tour of the west. It shows the "patriotism" of the editor of the Bryan organ: "A carload of old bummers called 'generals' are now touring the country on free passes and their other expenses are being paid by S Hanna, telling the people how to vote. They were in Omaha last niyjht. When the people stop to consider why such skunks are so terribly interested, it is enough to settle the matter that it is not any love for the poor man or the laborer that prompts these 'ginerals' to thus swing around the circle. But then the rotten old ship is sinking so fast that the crew is becoming desperate, and to be fair with them they hardly know where . they are at." Walter Weinman's conclusion that Nebraska will go for McKin ley, but that the vote will be very close, is the result of a painstaking and non-partisan study of the en tire state. Mr. Wellman went to every important point where reli able political information could be secured. He added, subtracted, weighed and balanced all the evi dence obtainable, and concluded that while the figures were very close, the advantage rested with the republicans on account of their superior organization and the eter nal truth in their cause. Mr. Well man' said after going through the state that he was most impressed with the vigor and enthusiasm of the sound money adherents, They have plenty of staying power in this campaign, whereas the cheap money people long ago said the last new word to be said about the "crime of 1873." And organization and enthusiasm will do wonders in the last month of the fight. Jour- It is not a matter of local pride or mere sentiment here in Nebraska. It is a -matter of business; "We must give our "electoral votes t Major McKmley to show that we are people who are worthy of be ing trusted with the stewardship of outside capital. We need the capi tai. we nave enormous recources waiting development. There Is but one way to get the monCy we need. We must borrow it. We cannot hope to find lenders unless we show ourselves fit people to be trusted. Journal. It is . well remarked that when farmers recollect that there was a decrease from 5.91 bushels in 1S92 down to 4.94 bushels in 1892 m the annual consumption, per capita of our population, of American wheat in the home market, and a decrease of 11 bushels iu the per capita consumption of our corn within the same period, they will begin to realize the truth of Mr. McKinley's statement that "prosperity of man ufactures is inseparable from tli prosperity of agriculture." "r REMARKS OF M'KINLEY. Clnccs tlio Issues of tlio Campaign Upon a Ulgh Plane Major McKinlcy placed the issues of the campaign upon a high plane when he said in addressing the delegation from Vermont: "To me the question of free trade la a question of humanity, the voice of la bor pleading for its own, and the ques tion of free silver a question of pub lic morality, honor, and good faith, and its success would be a blot on our hitherto spotless national credit." The money loss to the American peo ple by free trade and free coinage can be approximately measured in dollars. The figures showing the increased im portation of manufactured goods under the Wilson tariff law graphically depict the money loss sustained by the Amer ican mechanics. Dividing the total as sets of all building and loan associa tions and the total savings deposited in the savings banks by two will give a fair idea of the losses that will fall up-, on several millions of our people by the adoption of a debased currency. There is something else besides math ematics in this campaign. As Major McKinley said to the sturdy New Eng landers from the Green Mountain state, it is a question of humanity and of public morals. Shall we deprive American labor of its undoubted right to supply the home market, and after robbing it for the enrichment of foreign labor give it a depreciated currency with which to purchase the necessities of life? After doing this shall we re pudiate our national obligations and destroy our credit with the nations of the earth? ' These are questolns of humanity and morals. Fortunately for the welfare of this country they appeal quite as strongly to a very large proportion of our people as do questions of mere profit and loss. Chicago Times-Herald. NARROWNESS OF BRYAN. Poos Not Understand the Principle of Unity of Interest, order to find out how daneerous Tn tost.udy his public utterances. .He has no com-jpti&n of thru country as a unit. His mind is not broad enough to understand the great principles of unity of interest. He looks upon the man who has money as a public enemy who deserves no protection and who is entitled to no rights. Witness these statements takei from a speech de ''vered by Bryan in the house of rep resentatives on Jan. 30, 1S96: "Who is it that most needs a navy? Is it the farmer who plods along behind his plow upon his farm, or is it the man whose property is situated in some, great seaport, where it could be reached by an enemy's guns? Who is it demands a standing army? Is it the poor man vrho goes about his work, or is it the capitalist who wants that army to supplement the local govern ment in protecting that property, when he enters a contest with his employes?" One almost has to rub his eyes to make sure that he has not been dream ing that this man is a candidate for the presidency. Why, his conception of the country" is as narrow as was the King of Siam's knowledge of the uni verse when he refused to believe that water could become solid because he had never seen ice. This mighty na tion, stretching from ocean to ocean and from the great lakes to the gulf is as firml3r bound together and as inter-dependent as are the various parts of the human body. . If one part is af fected the whole is more or less dis eased. If a great fleet were to anchor off New York" harbor and shell the me tropolis, it would, in Bryan's opinion, make no difference to the farmers in Iowa or to the employe in Cedar Rap ids. He seems to think 'that because modern guns have not yet been per fected to such an extent that they can hurl solid shot from New York to the Mississippi valley, that therefore ve . should have no adequate protection for our seaport towns. Small benefit has It been to Mr. Bry an to attend church regularly. He evidently has never heard or heeded this text of Scripture: "For if tho bedy is not one member, but many. "If the fcot shali say, 'because I am noL the hand, I am not the body, is it therefore not of the body? "If the whole body were an eye where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing where were the smelling? "But now are there many members yet but one body. "And the eye cannot say unto the hand, 'I have no need of thee;' nor again, the head to the feet, 'I have no .need of thee.' "And whether one member suffer all the members suffer with it, or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with It." We commend Mr. Bryan to the study of these words. The country is one body. New York cannot say to the west, 'we have no 'need of thee;' or the west cannot say to the east, 'we have no need of thee.' If this country were all laborers and no capitalists labor would have no yar ied employments. We need our farms and we need our banks. We need our factories and we need our factory men. The man who seeks to array one class against the other and who thinks the interests" of one .section are hostile to the interests of the other is not fl to be road supervisor, let alone presi dent of the United States.

Chicago Post. THE TWO CANDIDATES. Personal Contrast as Shown in Their Speeches. There is no more impressive feature of this campaign than the personal contrast between the two opposing presidential candidates, as shown in their speeches, in their treatment of the great issues involved in the con test and in the respective attitudes of their points of view. From the sophomoric rant and fus tian of the boy orator, with his mere tricious appeals to class prejudice and passion; with his shallow sophistries, hfe blind dogmatism of ignorant and preposterous assertion, his plentitude of words and his paucity of ideas the American people turn with mingled contempt and indignation to mark the quiet and simple dignity of William McKinley; the elevated tone and com prehensive breadth of his plain and short addresses to all classes of his fellow-citizens; their epigrammatic conciseness of phrase, compact of wall ordered and well-considered thought and instinct, with a broad and gener ous patriotism that springs from a gen uine sympathy with the toiling masses and a profound comprehension of the inter-dependence of all classes and all interests. Bryan addresses himself to the ignorance and hatreds of the classes; McKinley to the intelligence and patriotism of the masses. The American people have taken the measure of these two men, and have accepted the revelation which each has unconsciously made of his character. In the one is recognized- the reckless and dangerous demagogue; In the oth er the wise and patriotic American statesman. - . "' Bryan has sunk in public estimation with every speech he has made. Mc Kinley has risen in the respect and ad miration of the American people every day since his nomination. Behind the latter stretches a long record of useful and earnest public service, as a soldier, a legislator, a statesman, the master ful executive of a great state, and which have trained him for the great duties and responsibilities of the au gust office to which the American peo ple have invited him. Behind the for mer lies no career of civil activity which affords any guarantee of his fitness for that office. His little public life has been confined to the platform. His world the stage on which he has strut ted his brief hours of sound and fury. The one was selected for the chief magistracy of the republic by the well matured and deliberate voice of the great Republican party from among the most honored statesmen of the re public. The other had not been dreamed of as a possible candidate when, by a theatrical burst of oratory, he . tricked a nomination out of the transitory wave of emotional applause which followed from a tumultous as semblage of fanatics, anarchists and lunatics. Both men have stood for three months in the full glare of public criticism. The Ohio man has stood every test of char acter and fitness for the great trust to which he has been summoned. Even those of opposite political parties who differ with him on minor matters of legislation, know that he can be sajp- ly entrusted with the stupendous pow ers and responsibilities of the presi dential, office; that he would maintain the honor of the government and faith fully guard all the constitutional safe guards of liberty and justice. But no one after the exhibition which Brvan has made of himself would trust him for a day with the guidance of the destinies of this great republic. The remotest possibility of his elec tion fiills the American people with just apprehension. For they see In it an era of distress and calamity and na tional dishonor such as the republic never before confronted, even In the darkest hours of the rebellion. In the election of McKinley they feel that they can confidently look forward to the revival of all the conditions of ..industrial and commercial activity, and to the inauguration of a new and gold en era of prosperity. Pioneer Press. , You Can Bet on 'Em. Those "who are so loudly proclaiming that the farmers are sitting up nights waiting for a chance to vote for cheap money will experience a shock when they read the returns from the agri cultural strongholds. A very small per centage of the farmers of this country have been carried away by the vaga ries of Populism. The farmers havo always been the backbone1 of the Re publican party and the stanchest de fenders of the nation's honor. Bay City Tribune.
