Mr. Bryan is opposed to protecting the material industries of the people. He so declared on more than one occa sion in Congress. He believes, doubt less sincerely believes, that freedom of trade with the victory to the successful, Is best for the consumer. Let us see what free trade doctrine fcas done for his own State, Nebraska. It has closed down since the Wilson- Gorman bill, which he helped to frame, three large woolen factories and ruined the sheep industry; it has cut off 60 per cent of the business of the savings banks of Nebraska; the- depositors in Nebraska in 1892 were 27,012, with |5,«fT,572 to their credit Now there are only 11.870 depositors, a falling off of 60 per cent, because protected in dustries have been grievously assailed by the "Wilson-Gorman bill and reduced to low-water mark. Of course other causes contributed somewhat to the falling off, but assuredly silver was not one of them, since before 1892 the operation of conditions so far as sil ver is concerned were the same in Ne braska as after 1892. In 1892 Mr. Bryan said in a speech tn Congress: The cities of Lincoln and Omaha have grown more rapidly ln the last ten > -ara than aay manufacturing city ln the East That was under a system that he now denounces as a crime. But let us see what happened after 1892, with the Wilson-Gorman tariff in force, strang ling home industries and opening the gates widely to foreign goods such as we ought to make and can produce at home. This is what has happened: 15,142 Nebraskana have ceased to de posit ln the savings banks; Omaha has suffered tn numerical strength and de sirable population and Industries have been closed down and lost to her. Lin coln, Mr. Bryan's home, has suffered a great deal more, in fact it has ap proached dangerously near to bedrock In decline ef business and manufac tures. It is not at all singular that in none ef his speeches in 1896 does Mr. Bryaa rsfer to the prosperity to which he alluded tu> eloquently in 1892. I*et wwlurg of all kinds, whether with aanria or heads, workers who are de pendent upon wages, keep this estab lished troth la mind, a truth denied im pudently by the Bryanites daily, name ly, "Wages do not always rise or fall in exact proportion to prices; and it usu ally happens that when prices are high, the mechanic and the laborer find their coconand over the means of subsistence diminishing, and that when prices are lew. taey are often, especially if con gregated la large establishments, de prived of their accustomed employment. On tiu whole, then, they suffer more by the vldssitudee in business and cur rency than any other class, and have eorußequently a greater interest than any ether tn the establishment of a stable currency." Remember that this was net spoken by a Republican, but by a Democrat, one to whose memory William J. Bryan ought to lift his hat •very time he profanes the name of Democracy by uttering the word —it was the saying, the deliberate utterance ef Samuel J. Til den, the great high priest ol Democracy. Brya« is now defending the plank of his platform assailing the Supreme Court. It is "no go." The covert threat in that plank admits of neither denial nor explanation. We have read all Mr. Bryan has had to say about it. and in perfect fairness must say the ex planation does not explain. We wish it did. We do not delight in the attitude of any citizen such as the indorse ment of that plank enforces, simply be cause he is a political opponent. Love of country and loyalty to the institu tions of freedom, forbid that pleasure shall be taken «yen for party advantage SACRAMENTO DAILY RECORD-UNION, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1896. in the confusion of anyone on such a subject. It is altogether too serious and grave a matter for that. We believe that Mr. Bryan is conscious of the unpat riotic, nay, the traitorous character of the plank he attempts to defend. We believe that as a publicist he knows It to be wrong, dangerous and disloyal. We know that Bryan sat within the hearing of Senator Hill at the Chicago convention, when the New Yorker sought to have that plank amended and begged the convention not to commit itself to such doctrine. Mr. Bryan saw Mr. Hill coughed down; he heard the derisive yells with which his sugges tions were met; he knew that the plank was put ln to satisfy the demand of radicals of the Altgeld and Tillman stripe. When, therefore, he defends it on the stump his defense is necessarily weak. But politicians sometimes put in motion forces they cannot control. If elected, Bryan will find that to be the case in this matter. The people will therefore not take the chances. They will construe the offensive plank ac cording to its plain and obvious mean ing, and give it no interpretation that requires in turn apology and explana tion. "There Is one sort of enthusiasm that counts most," said Mr. Edmunds at the Republican Convention of 18S4, "and that is the enthusiasm of confidence." True it is that which means most among the American people when the measure of a candidate and the propo sitions for which he stands is taken. Mr. Edmunds said in ISB4 that "the candidate to awaken the right kind of enthusiasm must be one who will stand for whatever has been honest and of good report in our national history, and for whatever has made for econ omy, financial wisdom, clean politics, and the integrity of national life. Above all, he must be one whose name will carry in the coming canvass that sense of security to which at each Presiden tial election the country turns as to a very rock of salvation. Such a man, honest and capable, will first master the sober judgment and approval of the people; and thenceforward he will stir them to the only enthusiasm, my friends, that counts, and that is the en thusiasm of public confidence." Mr. Bryan does not fill that bill of particulars. "The Government must do something for silver" shouts Mr. Bryan. Well, has it not been doing something for silver for a good many years? Has it not done more for silver than for any other interest? What has been the result? How has the effort of the Government in discriminating in favor of silver for fifteen years been rewarded? Not that we would have it undone or cease. By no means. But why should this "do something" be to the individual ac count of silver mine-owners? Why not continue the doing upon the account of the Government and as the needs of trade and the people require? "I am dealing with principles, not men," says Archbishop Ireland, and he added that not since 1860, ln his opin ion, has the nation been so threatened as it now is by the Chicago platform and the forces behind it He declares that it means revolution; he might have better said rebellion; Indeed, he did say it means secession, and he quotes Pitch fork Tillman, who, unrebuked, in the face of the Chicago convention, was permitted to shout that the financial issue is a sectional one, and that he (Tillman), hailing from the home of secession, believed in secession. Says Archbishop Ireland in his pa triotic letter: Many adherents of the movement do not perceive its full meaning; but let them beware; they are lighting torches which, borne in the hands of reckless men, may light up in this country the lurid fires of a commune. The Prelate is right. The secret springs and the motive powers of the Chicago convention impel the party standing upon its platform toward law ness, destruction of human rights and the inauguration of a class war that could only terminate la disaster to the American Republic. There never has been a President elected who was distrusted by the busi ness Interests of the country—not one. No man has ever yet been elected Pres ident against whose candidacy the moral question was raised. Mr. Bry an enjoys the distinction of being more challenged on moral grounds for the platform on which he stands than any candidate who has ever presented him self. It is unthinkable that the moral sense of the people will at this time re verse its rule. Of course it will be in order to say now that Mark Hanna bought Arch bishop Ireland to declare that the Chi cago platform, in his opinion, imperils good order and the perpetuity of the Republic. If the opposition do not charge Chairman Hanna with some such thing we shall be greatly *ur prised. Articles of Incorporation.

Members of the Board Express Their Opinions of the Merchants' Association, y At a meeting of the State Board of Equalization yesterday morning Chair man Morehouse requested Secretary Coglan to read tbe communication re ceived some time ago from the Mer chants' Association of San Francisco in order that the Board might decide what action to take. The letter was "dug up" and proved to contain a resolution denouncing the members of the board in strong terms for raising the assessment of San Fran cisco and demand that the board give reasons for its action. When the reading was finished the wrath of Equalizer Beamer boiled over, He said that a communication couched in such ungentlemardy terms was not entitled to any answer, after the asso ciation had insulted the Board in the way it had. The association and San Francisco Board of Supervisors had been asked to come up here and present their case, but had never put In an ap pearance, although they had plenty of time to do so. He scored Taylor se verely for remarks made In his San Francisco speech, in which he had prac tically called the members of the board criminals and intimated that it was bet ter to say nothing of the way in which the San Francisco delegation that came up last year prevented the assessment from being raised. Mr. Beamer said he was perfectly will ing that Mr. Taylor should make public everything connected with the affair. He thought Mr. Taylor must have staid out too late at night while here, and laid his headache in the morning to the board instead of himself. The people of San Francisco, he thought, had better pick out some other man to elect for Mayor and send Taylor to his hog ranch ln Solano. Chairman Morehouse said the San Francisco officials and the association had been afforded every chance to be heard, but had declined to embrace the opportunity, although it was extended for two weeks. Instead they had put Mr. Chesebrough, a member of the board, in the position of having to de fend them against his fellow-member 3. They could have had an explanation by appearing before the board at the proper time. He was tired of sitting on the board and having citizens made to think he was wrong, when he knew he was right. Equalizer Arnold also expressed his indignation at the tone of the communi cation, but Equalizer Chesebrough had little or nothing to say. The board may hold a meeting in San Consumption kills more people much dreaded epi v^^n•sY^^" lsease pene- yih Mr Mir/ trates the whole yfflmln Iffiifcjjr every drop of blood. It seems to lungs, but the terrible drain and waste go on all over the body. The only way to get rid of consumption is to work on the blood, make it pure, rich and whole some, build up the wasting tissues, put the body into condition for a fight with the dread disease. The cure of consump tion is a fight—a fight between sound tissues and the encroaching germs of disease. Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery fights on the right side. It drives the f efms back, forces them out of the body, t will cure 98 per cent, of all cases of con sumption if it is taken during the early stages of the disease. Its first action is to put the stomach, bowels, liver and kidneys into good working order. That makes digestion good and assimilation quick and thorough. It makes sound healthy flesh. That is half the battle. That makes the "Discovery" good for those who have not consumption, but who are lighter and less robust than they ought to be.

A Stockton Paper Hakes Some Inter esting Comparisons. (From the Stockton Independent,) It is quite as important to the people that a Republican Congress be elected next month as that McKinley should be elected President. It is also of great im portance that the Congressmen elected should be men experienced in legislation in order that their districts may be effi ciently represented and served. Those districts that have returned the same men to Congress for many years have always been the best served because their Representatives, by their acquain tance with other members as well as with congressional affairs and methods, are able to exert inuences which no new members can. For this reason those districts that send new men to Congress every term are apt to be ill-served by the Representative and neglected by others. The Second California District was an exception to this rule during the last Congress because it was represented by a man of unusual force of charatcer, of unusual ability, with a ripe experience, extensive information and thorough fa miliarity with parliamentary affairs and the courage to break through the musty traditions of Congress which discourage a member in his first term. Mr. John son now comes before the people for re election with all these considerations in his favor and besides them a thorough devotion to protection and all other measures that are espoused by the Re publican party and are calculated to restore prosperity. Mr. Johnson's posi tion on silver is, perhaps, somewhat too advanced to suit the more conservative Republicans, but when it is remembered that the majorities in Congress have been unfriendly and even unjust to sil ver, it is advisable that there should be in that body men like Air. Johnson, who, even if somewhat too strongly in favor of silver, help to check the Eastern ten dency to go to the extreme of unfriendli ness to it. In all that interests the Sec ond District, In all that interests San Joaquin County, in all that interests Stockton, Grove L. Johnson has shown himself to be not only in full accord with the people, but active and efficient in promoting their interests. Against his opponent, personally, the "Indepen dent" has naught to urge, but against the platform on which he stands and which he advocates the objections are many and great. His speeches in de fense of that platform, which contains the vicious low tariff plank, the wildest of currency fallacies that threaten to disturb business, are greatly against Mr. De Vries. Besides this Mr. De Vries has no legislative experience and should he be elected he would find himself in a powerless and unpopular minority, which, were his years, experience and ability greater, would leave him in a position in which he could be of little or no use to his district Those young Republicans of San Joaquin County who lean toward him from personal prefer ence, from friendship that they have cherished for him from boyhood and from a desire to honor him as a friend, should remember that the Interests of their country, their State and their home should be superior to mere per sonal friendship, however well deserved. To send him to Congress would be to gratKv friendship at a great cost to the district when a man of ripe experience and ability, and one who has shown him self so efficient as has Grove L. Johnson, is the candidate against him. AGITATO'S RECORD. What James Cairn Simpson Says of It. Referring to the Agitato incident at the recent State Fair. James Cairn Simpson, the veteran turfman, says In the "Breeder and Sportsman": The "Horseman" contains a violent attack on the official occupying the stand at Sacramento when 2:09 was "hung out" and afterward changed to a quarter of a second slower. And with good cause for disapproval I have endeavored to obtain the reasons for the change, and Mr. who was clerk of the course, gives the following explanation: "One of the timers made the heat 2:09 and placed these figures on the board. When the other timers were crossing from the timing stand on the inside of the track to the judges' stand —which after many years of controver sy has been placed on the right side — the figures caught their eye. These two reported that one of the watches showed 2:09 2-5, the other 2:09 3-5, and in accordance with a majority of the chronographs the time was cor rected, as might be expected. There are many stories afloat, nearly all of them in opposition to the change of time. "Under the circumstances and the vital importance of the question, it will be well for the Pacific Board of Appeals to make a thorough investigation. Should Agitato be entered in a 2:10 class. It is nearly assured that a pro test will be entered, and, in justice to his owner, and what is of vastly greater weight, the opprobrium must be re moved, or, if guilty of suppression, the parties at fault punished. ON TRIAL. firs. Ann Elliott, the Alleged Pro curess. In Judge Hlnkson's court yesterday the trial of Mrs. Ann Elliott—the wo man arrested by Special Officer Dan Healy of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children for subjecting little girls to shameful abuse —was be gun. District Attorney Ryan is con ducting the prosecution, and the woman is being defended by Charles T. Hughes. The jurors selected to try tbe case are: James McKenna, grocer; J. M. Henderson, retired; Thomas L. Acock, retired; James Murphy, barber; A. Walther. retired: W. E. Graff, plumber; E. Hageman, butcher; G. M. Schumach er, cabinetmaker; W. H. Devine, gro cer; Peter Schulp, farmer; G. A. Burns, contractor; Aaron Core, farmer. The case is being tried with closed doors, which is very proper owing to the character of the testimony. At the preliminary examination it was shown that Mrs. Elliott had induced little girls to visit her den, where they consorted with low characters who went there for that purpose. Some of these children are of very tender years, but there are older ones who testified to overtures made to them by Mrs. Elliott to become inmates of a house of prostitution that she wished to establish for the exclusive patronage of Chinese. Affidavits as to personal character may be necessary to allay suspicion or to attract the simple minded, but what has the manufacturer's private charac ter to do with the efficacy of his so called "cure?"
