THE WASHINGTON TIMES, FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 5. 1915.
Bryan Throws Down Gauntlet to Wilson Former Premier Declares President's Speech Repre sents False Philosophy and Aims at Complete Reversal of National Policy. (Continued from Kiwi Vate'.) pronl was clven hl attack on hyphe nated Alrtcrlcane whose attacks oa thi) aovernmrtit'n foreign policy bespoke, a tlvldcd allegiance. Bryan Warns President. Mr Ilryan, who In staflng In Wash ington for n fotv das at his home In Calumet place, notified tlio newspapers early this morning that he would have a statement to make regarding the President's speech. Hlslnx early, ha had thoroughly digested the President s address before breakfast and long be fore noon he had his reply typewritten and manifolded. Tlio former Becrotary In the closing portion of his statement warned the I'resldont not to take comfort from the enthusiasm which had greeted his ad dress before the Manhattan Club, which Mr. Hryan characterized as the placo "where the Mammon worshiping por tion of the Democratic party meet to mchantfo compliments." Tlio wholo national defense program as outlined by the President, he charged, was a violation of the prin ciples ot Christianity, "which teaches us to lnfluenco .others by example rather than by exciting fear. He sought to provo by the Presi dent's own statements In his address that thero never was a tlmo in recent years when there was less need for Increasing the strength of the army or navy, "ristol toting" was the torm which he used to characterize the pol icy which requires a nation to be armed In order to bn respected. A Delusive Maxim. "Speak softly, but carry a big stick," he remarked, "Is one of the deluslvo maxims employed 'by those who put their faith In force. There are two answers to It. Klrst, the man who speaks softly has not the disposition to carry a club; and If a man with a soft voice Is persuaded to carry a club his Voice changes as soon as he begins to rely on the Club." If Mr. Ury an Is against the policy of preparedness for the nation ho has not failed to prepare himself for his fight with the Administration. Kver since he quit the Cabinet, on the ground that (ho President's Iusltanla policy was calculated to draw tho United States Into the world war. he has been speak ing all ocr the country against the movement for better national defense. Insisting tint such a movement was prejudicial to the nation's lole of peace maker, und changing those behind It will being tho tools of the armor plate trust. . .. Except In the Interior portions of tho country, he has not met with much re sponse, but what favor he found In the Middle West and Southwest he has been using for all it wna worth to stir up opposition to the President. In con sequence of this fact. Democratic Con gressmen and Senators from theso sec tions who have been arriving in Wash ington lately are noticeably reticent about pledging themselves to support the President. To overcome possible defections In this quarter, the ITeal dent has decided to appeal to Republi vcans as well as Democrats to htlp him. Read Statement "With Sorrow." Mr. Uryan. say his friends, has mada all his plans to be In Washington throughout, the defense flcht. That h will carry his fight into tho Democratic! national convention next Juno la thought llkoly. for while this ear's de fense program may havo gono througn by that time, Its polloy requires a steady Increase in tho military and naval expansion tor a period covering tho next Administration. Thciefore. thero are many who believe that .Mr. Uryan is prepared. If necessary, to go Into tho convention determined to pre vent the President's renomlnutlon. tils statement today was as follows: "1 have read the President s speech at New York with sorrow and con cern. He is doing what he believes to be his duty, but I feel it my duty to dissent. Wo cannot criticise his mo tives, as ho has given his views witn clearness and emphasis, but those wno dllter with him ate under a like obliga tion to express themselves with equal clearness, Mr. Hryan declared that tho Presi dent will not assume "that he Is more deeply Interested in tho nclfaro of his country than the millions who elected him to be, for the time being, their spokesman. "And It," the statement continues, "ho Is ghlng voice to the opinion of "Ids countrymen, he Is unxlous to havo them as frank with him as he has been with them how otherwise can he know whether he represents, or mis represents, their views? "Challenge To Christianity." "From my view of this subject, the plan which he proposes, Is not only a depart ure from our traditions, but a reversal of our national policy. It Is not only a menace to our leace and safety, but a challenge to the spirit of Chrlstlanlt), which teaches us to Influence oth, it example- rather than by oxcltlng (car. "It is a false philosophy. From be ing false, It Inevitably leads Into diffi culty. The spirit which makes the. in dividual carry a rcolvcr lends him not only to uso It on slight provocation, but to uin language which will provoke trouble. "'Speak softly, but cairy a big stick,' Is one. of the delusive maxims employed by those who put tbclr faith In force. There aro two answers to It. Klrst, the man who speaks softly has not the disposition to carry a club, and If n man with a soft voice Is persuaded to carry a club, his voice changes as soon as he begins to rely on the club. "This nation bus won its position !n the world without resorting to the habit of totlnK a pistol or carrying club. "Why reverse our policy at thla time? The Pipsldeut himself admits thero is no reason for change He says 'The country Is not threatened from any quarter: she stands in friendly relation with all the world.' And to make the statement more em phatic, he adds: 'Thero is no fear among us.' If we are not threatened by any nation, if our relations with all nations ore friendly, If everybody knows wo nro able to defend ourselves If necessary, und If there Is no fear amoni; us, why Is this tlmo chosen to revolutionize our national theory, and to exchange our policy for tho policy of Kurope-' Why abandon tho hope that wo have so long entertained of setting an exnmple to Uuropo? Why encourage the nations of Kurope In their folly by Imitating them? Why Impose upon tho Western Hemisphere a policy so disastrous? - Would Do "Infinite Harm." "Do we not expect I-itln-Amerlea to be stimulated to preparation If we en ter Info a new era of preparation? Will not such a policy make conllicts be tween those republics moro proUablo? We shall do Infinite harm to the neigh boring nations an well as to ourselves If we aro drawn Into thts policy Which provokes war by a preparation which Is Impossible without a largo taxation Increase and the arising nf a mllltarv svsfom which sets up false standards of honor. We sre now spending more than JlBO.nnn.eoo a car on preparedness -Irn times as much as we are snenn. luf on agriculture and I feel that tho taxpayers arc not In favor or Increas ing this sum at a time when a change, is not only unnecessary but a menuco to our national ideals. There has not teen a time in recent csj-g when there was less reason to ndd to the. expenses or the army and navy, tor we are not only without an enemy, but our pre Imredness is increasing rapidly as other nations exhaust themselves. There never has been a time In our history wnrn our duty io me world moro nil p. ilvoly demanded self-restraint and Ih'-counsels of peace. "I hope tho President will not lie de ceived by the atmospher of the .Mat liattnn Club. This Is the one place in the Unltril State where the Mammon- worshipping portion of the Democratic party meet to exchange compliments. There Is no group further removed from the sentiment of the masse, whether you measuro that sentiment ny economic, social, nr reglllous stan dards," Full text of the President's speech is published on Pafe ten.
