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
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
"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
"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

San Francisco Merchants to the State
Tax Equalizers.
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
Equalizer Arnold also expressed his
indignation at the tone of the communi
cation, but Equalizer Chesebrough had
little or nothing to say.

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.
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
"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
"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.
firs. Ann Elliott, the Alleged Pro
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?" Ely's Cream Balm de
pends solely upon its reputation of
years as a cure for catarrh In all its
stages. It is absolutely free from mer
cury or any other drug injurious to the
