Inducements than ore now offered upon the

up last night with a alight ripple caused

I at the banquet hall of the Manhattan React
Hotel whore the travelling men wore
finishing off n day of athletic games with
a dlnnnr and dance Mr Bryans letter
to the drummers had eo much Lincoln
Nebraska politics In it that Comptroller
Metz who presided decided after coins
over the matter with n score of the others
present not to read the Bryan letter at all
It seems that a few days ago It was de
cided that no political matters were to
enter the convention in any way and In
vitations to last nights banquet wore
sent out freely to big men of both parties
Mr Taft and Mr Hughes sent polite letter
of regret that they couldnt be on the job
last night but M Bryan got some politics
Into his refusals that he sent a telegram
and I letter
As the letters and telegrams were overhauled
hauled before the time set for reading
them from the guest table there was a
upstage conference about the Bryan me
sage of good o 1 took only a te
minutes to decide that the message
should not be read aloud nor eve shown
about the room and then It a agreed

were not t b launched Upon the public

In a desire for a return of prosperity The
Republican leaders have tried to monopolize
the prosperity Ie but events have exposed
the absurdity of their claims Not twins
able t defend their pollutes upon logical
and rational run her attribute al good
to Republican administration and shirk r
spontlbllltr that is bad For instance In
IBM they Insisted that the panic of tew was
lte pic
a Democratic plo merely because It came
when Mr Cleveland occupied the Wit
Bouse whereas It came Immediately after
Mr Cleveland was Inaugurated and before
there h been any change in anr law
They a accustomed to say that they can
guarantee prosperity and that Pnlc always
follow a Democratic success and yet the
panic of IS7J cams after tho Republican
party had been < In complete power twelve

Democrats swcwdsd in seatlnra President

tto all three branches of th Federal
Government Ofthe three panics that have
come since the Republican partr came into
power two bare come under Republican administrations
ministrations nnd when tbeRrat and House
were In political sympathy with the Presi
dent and a third came immediately after
the Republican administration and came
from causes that had their origin In Repub
lean legislation >
Everybody wants prosperity but the
Republican leaders stand for a prosperity
that Is monopolized by a comparative few
who secure favors at the hands of that party
while the Democrats want a prosperity shared
by all the people and resting on a solid foundation
I believe that the platform adopted at
Denver outlines a plan by which prosperity
din be permanently promoted Prosperity
which will enter prmote of all who
with brain or muscle contribute to the na
tions wealth a prosperity which will be
shared by each person In proportion A he
renders a favor tosocl tyt

many professional laboring men also
according to Mayor Rose The speaker
spoke of Cardinal Gibbons as a great leader
against socialism
