SOLDIERS, FARMERS AND
FOR FAILURE TO
LABORERS WILL SMITE G. O. P.
PROTECT THE MASSES, SAYS W. J. BRYAN
LABOR SITUATION
IN AMERICA WORSE
THAN EVER BEFORE
Republican Leaders Are on the Side of Capital
as Against Working Classes and the Struggle
Has Been Brought Down to a Brnte Basis
With the Spirit of Brotherhood Exercising
Less and Less Influence, Declares the Re
braskan In Closing Article.
By WILLIAM JBHinNOS BRYAN. \
THE proposed ship subsidy threatened division in the
v Republican Party almost as wide as the unprece
dented division over the revenue bill and the spilt over
the tariff bill, but the controversy became so heated that the
Consideration of it was postponed until after the eleetion.
The "job session" is going tb be quite busy with deferred
hsuea.
Some day the American people will wake up to the menace
of a session held after the election. Whenever a question
arises which threatens to disturb party harmony or to arouse
an emphatic protest from the people, it is chloroformed dur*
ing the campaign and left over as unfinished business to be
attended to when retiring members can vote wrong without
danger to their political futures.
Each new Congress ought to convene soon after the elec
tion, not later than January, and the second session should,
by law, adjourn before the following election. This would
Bot prevent the calling of an extra session in case of an
emergency, but it would prevent the passage of undeairable
law ny discarded legislators.
The soldiers' bonus problem
?earns likely to Influence as many
votes as any other single Issue?
not that all the voter* favor the
bonus, but because those who are
offended by the President's veto
are more apt to express their criti
cism by their votes than are those
who approve. The opposition to
the soldiers' bonus has been led
by big business and "big business"
la Republican anyhow.
The soldiers, on the other hand,
are not wedded to any party, and
the Injustice which has been done
by the President's veto is apt to
****** * - *|- - -rurr*
drive many of them away from
Republican candidates.
If the Republican Administra
tion has been economical in other
directions, it might have made a
successful appeal to the soldiers
to be patient, but the soldier-; are
the only ones for whom there
seems to be no money.
The Republican leaders were
very prompt In responding to the
demands of the profiteers who
asked that the excess profit tax
be repealed. The four hundred
and fifty millions a year (the esti
mate relief given to the profiteers)
would have gone a considerable
distance toward satisfying the
need* of the soldiers. The It*
publican leaders tried to relieve,
to the extent Of ninety millions of
taxes a year, the persona who pay
on big lncomee. That weald have
helped some toward paying ths
soldiers.
The Republican leaders have
dealt generously also with the
railroads, but the soldiers have
to wait.
As to the Justloe of the bonus,
there would seem to be little doubt.
The soldiers were called from hbme
and, under the selective draft,
were compelled to give up any
work however hicrattv* and any
opportunities however promising
In order to serve the Government
at a very nominal salary.
Most of the four millions of
men called to th* colors seat their
money for the support of persons
dependent upon them. During
the w?r prices rseo to sueh an
extent that th* money sent boms
by the soldiers lost a considerable
portion of Its purchasing power.
Then, too. thoee who stayed at
home received an Increase In
wages and many of thsm mads
fortunes. ,
DOLLAR BEFORE HIE MAN.
More millionaires were created
In the United States during the
period of the war?from the
breaking out of hostilities In Eu
rope to the signing of the armis
tice?than were made In all the
previous history of our country.
Instead of rwhpafllnd Umso who
made money ent of tiio war to

A groat many of the
men reared In Republican fami
lies wUl learn from their exper
ience with ths bonus bUl how
thoroughly oommltted the Repub
lican leaders are to property
rights as distinguished from hu
man rights. In !>M Abraham
Lincoln, In declining an Invitation
to a Jefferson banquet In Boe
ton, said that the Republican
party believed In the man and the
dollar, but that. In case oonfUct
occurred between the two, it be*
lieved In the man before the dol
lar.
The soldiers who furnished the
man power In the war will not be
slow to notice the change that ha*
come In the Republican leadership
?Inc* th* day* sf Unooln. Today

ANTIiLABOR ATTITUDE.
The Republican leader* stand
for pollcl** that tend to divide *o
ctoty Into classes to separate the
people Into the privileged classes
and the unorganised mssss*. The
Republican 1*?d*ra are in sympathy
with the eftorta of the big corpora

Individual employ* to helple**n**s.
It Is not nece*sary to defend si!
that organised labor dose In order
to believe In the n*c***lty for or
ganisation. Laboring men ar* hu
man and ar* as likely to err as
other humans. But those who
belong to organized labor are no
more likely to make mlstakee than
tho** who telong to organised capi
tal; they-are under more restraint
than th* capitalists, because their
needs compel them to accept the
test terms that they can got.
They oanaot stand a suspension'
of business as long as the capital
ists can. If Individual laborers
were dealing with Individual em
ployers, the personal relationship
between them would he a protec

Congress alone haa the power
to .deolare war and that power
cannot be surrendered Into the

the right to decide when, for what
and under what circumstances we

wladom and influence ought to be

Our Prealdent has no right to

commercial Interests that are pro

FOR GOVERNMENT PAPER.
In this article I have briefly
treated of four of the public ques
tion* under discussion. In closing,
I venture to call attention to the
need of a Government paper. What
the people muat have. If they de
cide queatlona quickly and rightly.
Is full information furnished by
the Government to those who de
sire It.
A national bulletin would not
only pre*ent the la*ue*. but tt
?hould have editorial spa&e In
. which representatives of the differ
ent partlea could present argu
ment* pro and con, ao that all the
p*opl* would have all the Informa
tion necessary to alt In judgment
on all queatlona.
Such a paper ahould also furnish
space on equal terms to all candi
dates legitimately before the coun
try *o that political honors will be
open to th* poor as well aa the
to th* rich. A national bulletin
would do more than any other
one thing to shorten the period of
agitation and Insure the triumph
of that which Is right.
The sense of Justice In the heart
of the American people can be
trusted If the people know the facts
and the arguments. "Let there be
light" on every public question and
our people will solve aright every
problem, remedy every wrong and
aecur* every needed reform.
"BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE"

new sort of giving is
proof that somehow, in
spite of discouragements
and delays, we do pro

To give is i divine right
But there is an old say
ing that God helps those
who help themselves, and
when we assume the re
sponsibility of giving, we
may well follow this hint,
too.

The world ia full of
splendid girls, struggling
with burdens and oares
too heavy for them. It is
full of young men meet

but at too great-a cost to nerves and pooketbook. It
has its widows, able to pay grooery and coal bills, but
fretted ~by the oonstant thought of that terrible hundred
that must some day go to dentist or doctor. But these
are not the persons our generosity finds. No, we are all
agog about the Smith family, down by Factoryville.

Put your hand in yottr pocket, and offer money to Mary
Wilson? No, of oourse, you couldn't. But you could
give her friendship; the older-woman friendship she needs
so badly. Tou could win her trust, win her confidence,
and be to that little fatherless group a name always to
be held in grateful memory through all the years.

It isn't the people who don't pay their bills who worry
about them, but the people who do.

The giving that means the best gift of all?ourselves?
can never be done on a big and showy scale. It is a per
sonal matter of little gifts, of visits, of friendship.

while this new sort of a gallery
outstripped in value, to the col
lector, all the glorlee of the Vati

THE NEW LAW.
It la our wonderful privilege, aa

ideals that are baaed upon the
rights of the poorest among us;
to inherit?more than any btfisr
nation in the world?a burning
hatred of injustice, and a passion

Everywhere?from Free port. L.

In numbers and in power, to dis

human ignorance and misery.

less drinking, lsas dirt?better

new national hymn that Is being

oceans.
To give, and give, and give with
out stopping is the new; and this
new sort of giving is proof to any
one who studies It that somehow.
In spits of dlsoouragsments and
delays, we do progress, from gen

AWFUL OLD-STYLE GIVING.
Tou remember the old sort of
giving?the sort made so attrao
"I have It here at half-paat seven.

to receive their yearly gift from

"We have this turksy dinner

To give la a divine right But
there ia an old saying that Ood
helps thoss who helps themselves,
and when we resume the reeponsl
blllty of giving, we may well fol
low this hint, too.
PEOPLE WB DON'T HELP.
The world Is full of splendid glrle,
struggling with burdsns and oarss
too hSfcvy for thsm.
It is full of young men meeting
their obllgationa aa houaeholdere,

WHAT ABOUT FRIENDSHIP. .
"How's mother!" we say, ending
our triumphant recital of the af
fair Smith.
A little flaah of hope comes Into
lflss Wilson's eye, diss away again;
she sees that the Inquiry Is merely
polite.
She banishes a dream of some
body volunteering to come sit with
mother tomorrow night and replies
quietly that mother Is about the
same.
Put your hand la your pockst,
and offer money to Mary WlltonT
No, of course, you ooulda't.
But you could give her friend
ship, the older woman friendship
she so badly nteds. You could win
her trust, win her confidence and
be to that fatherless group a name
always to be held in grateful mem
ory through all the years.
She Isn't asking charity, she Is
doing her Job alone. But she is
ths girl to whom thsatsr tickets,
or the little fringed petticoat, or
the vacation week cruising In your'
car would mean a gllmpee of
Heaven itself.
I remember a Christmas episode
years sgo?the gift of a certain
man made to a group of strug
gling, lmproverished, girls and
boys who were almost strangers
to him.
On Christmas morning the oldest
boy received an envelope In the
mall, and In that envelope were
seven receipted bills?the drug
store bill, the dry goods store bill,
the dentist's bill, the butcher's
meat market, milk and shoe store
bill. They were all small; they
did not quite total a hundred dol
lars in all.
But oh, the glory that that In*
spired Christmas gift spread over
that Christmas Day, and the mem
ory of It that has grown greener
and sweeter with twenty succeed
ing Chrlstmasesl It was the high
water mark In Inng years of drudg
ery and doubt. It waa the Christ
mas mlracls of kingly offerings
.at*, over again!
Not long ago one of those girls
asksd that man what had made
think et It He
"Well, you poor kids wsre so
prompt about paying your rent,
and you used to look so serious
every time you had to charge 10
cents anywhere "
After all, it Isn't the people who
don't pay their bills who worry
about them, but the people who
do.
If a man's Income Is two hun
dred a month .and his monthly ex
penditure is three hundred, a raise
of fifty dollars m^ans nothing to
him; he has already anticipated
that raise, and the next raise.
If the Smiths can't manage to
keep food in their bodies and a
roof over their heads in 1915, and
in 19S0, they certainly won't know
)y>w to do It In 1916. The only
thing that we can give to the
Smiths is the one thing they won't
have on any terms?e^jicatlon.
It we could put into the brain
of the easy-going, helpless Mrs.
Smith the secret of the two great
words "thrift" and Industry,"
there wouldn't be any mors or
ganised charities!
THE BB8T GIFT OF ALL.
But the charities know that the
Smiths aro Incorrigible, and that
ths only help must be In keeping
what corafbrt and sanitation la
possible about the babies, and In
praying that some glimmering of
their responsibilities will come to
them, as they grow.
Heartless?
No; the charities are only weary
and wise.
They can help to save the chil
dren, they can weed out Impostors
and gradually educate and Improve.
They can do no more.
And for us remains that harder
giving, the giving that means the
best gift of all?ourselves.
It can never be done on a big
and showy scale; It la a personal
matter of little gifts, of visits, of
friendship. ,
Right In ths family there Is won
derful opportunity for it; right
'round the corner is that white
faced little mother faced with tu
berculosis, struggling with two
restless babies, and needing (in
spite of Jim's bank clerk salary,
and old Millie In the kitchen) need

DON'T HURRY GETTING
Out of Bed
PHYSICIAN'S ADVICE
By Calveraal Service.
DO not spring from bed the
moment you wake In the
morning. Do not spring
from bed at all?take it quietly.
This Is ths advice that the best
physicians in London now give to
those who consult them.
The old plea waa that as soon as
you opened your syss you should
fUftg off tht bedclothes, bound to
ths floor with a display of magnifi
cent vitality, and hurl yourself at
the buainesa of ths day. It waa all
wrong. It waa unscientific. It
took no account of the mental and
phyalcal state of the Individual on
waking. -
Physicians who have considered
ths question Isy down an entirely
different rule. They advise that
five minutes should'be devoted to
the business of waking up, and
that hurry should be avoided. Th?
act of aprlnglng from bed is baa
because it accelsratea the action
of the heart suddenly, after the
period of repose, with the conse
quence that the individual becomes
unbalanced, and remains In an un
balanced condition for hours, pos
sibly for ths rest of the day.
Getting out of bed should be a
leisurely, not a hurried, process.
The feet should be Ml down quietly
to the floor, and the body then
raised gently to a sitting position
before standing up. Ths move
ments fhould be gradual end placid |
There should be no rush. Body
and mind will then come tn the
day's work la an squabts condition
