WASHINGTON. D. C., Oct. 1.?During
his unparalleled efforts In 1806 to
reach the white house, Bryan traveled
over 13.000 miles; he visited about 360
towns and he delivered, all told, nearly
500 speeches.
Ills "paramount issue" at that time
was the free coinage of sliver at 1G to
1. The greater part of hlo speeches
were devoted to this subject. He could
not say enough against the gold standard,
under which system a dollar of
our money was-(and Is still, and If the
Republicans remain in power will continue
to be) worth 100 cents anywhere
in the civilized world." '
In nearly every one of his speeches
Bryan then predicted dire results if
McKinley was elected,- and the gold
standard continued. To Illustrate,-in
one of his addresses he said:
Wages Will Be Decreased.
"If McKinley and the Republican party
are successful and put In power for
the next four years, wages will be decreased,
hard times will come upon us,
and over the land the price of wheat
will go down, and the price of gold will
go up; mortgages on our homes will
bo foreclosed by the money lenders;
shops and factories will close. We will
export no goods and wo will Import
trr\itr> Innrlj oil fhtt i'nnrlu WA iioa*
thus ruin, want and misery will be with
us." . . - .
ft very intelligent man in the. country
knows that each and every one of these
wild predictions has proved absolutely
false. Exactly the reverse has taken
place, and neither Bryan nor any of hl3
followers can truthfully deny it.
Again, this great calamity howler an-1
apostle- of free silver says in his own
book, "The First BaUle," published after
his. defeat in 1896:
Means Dearer Money.
"The gold standard means dearer
money;' dearer money mean3 cheaper
property; cheaper property means harder
times; harder times means more people
out of work; more people out of
work means more people destitute;
more people destitute means more people
desperate, and more people desperntn
moono mnrn r?rlmiv"
The gold standard is here yet, however,
and with it the greatest and most
general prosperity the country has ever
experienced. Let us consider a few
"signs of the times":
Nothing shows more plainly whether
or not the country is prosperous than
our exports, our deposits in savings
banks and the bank exchanges at.the
various clearing houses. Thesu institutions
are about as sensitive to the
condition of the country as a barometer
is to the atmosphere.
Excess of Exports Over Imports.
According to the official records, the
excess of exports over Imports, or the
balance of trade In our favor, during
the three years from March 1, 1S97, to
March 1, 1900, .was J1.4S3.049, or nearly
four times as much as the balance of
trade during the nine years from 1820
to March 1. 1900?which was only J3S3,028,497.
This marvelous growth of our
export trade, be it remembered, has developed
under a high protective tariff
and the gold standard. Only a fewyears
since, when Grover Cleveland was
running on a free trade platform, It was
loudly proclaimed that a large export
trade could not exist under a protec
live tariff.
The clearing house returns of the United
States for the last fiscal year were
5S8,909,661,776, while for ilie last year of
Cleveland's administration they were
551,935,651,733. The returns for 1S03, as
above, were practically double those of
the year 1894, the year in which the
Wilson low tariff law went into operation.
Deposits in Savings Banks.
The deposits in the savings banks of
the country, according to the ofHelal reports
of the comptroller of the currency,
have Increased from 51.907,150,277, In
1896, to 12,230,366,954 In 1899, an increase
of over one hundred millions per year.
Bryan predicted again and again In
1896 that money would grow scarcer under
a continuance of the gold standard.
Has It though? The amount of money,
including gold, paper and silver, In circulation
July 1, 1900, was $2,062,425,49ft.
or 526 50 per capita, more money per
man than the country has had since
the Pilgrims landed, in 1896 the amount
In circulation was only $1,506,431,966.
Four years ago the gold money In the
United States was only 5597,000,000; today
It Is over one thousand millions.
During hard times the gold is hoarded,
as it was in 1896; when prosperity and
confidence return, however, thoso who
have money invest It in various enterprises.
Confidence of the People.
From 1887 to 1893 the confidence of the
p<?opI& in the stability of the government
was so great that only 516,vt/0,0Ufl
of the 5346,000,(W0 of greenback currency
outstanding was prsKonitt'd at the treas
ury of the United Statin for redemption
and the gold withdrawn?only 546,000,000
in fourteen years. But during the
last three and a half years of Cleveland's
administration the confidence of
tho people was bo shaken that more than
two hundred millions of greenbacks
were presented for redemption and the
gold withdrawn from the treasury and
circulation. Tho greenbacks, be it Understood,
could depreciate in valuo but
tho gold could not, therefore tho eagerness
of the people to secure tho latter.
Kegnrdlng failures, Bryan suys In hln
book: "It ia only necessary to note tho
Increased number of failures In order to
know that a gold standard 1? ruinous to
merchants and manufacturers."
Number of milures,
Tho number of failures during the
. y<?ar In which tho above statement was
madu (IMC) was 15,088, according to
Dun's. Review, with liabilities of ii26??

The cotton Industry has advanced
marvelously within the last two or
three years. Commenting upon this and <
the general prosperity of the south, the 1
Atlanta Constitution, (Dcm.), of Sep- j
tember 1C, says:
"Two years ago, notwithstanding the
price of cotton at that time, our peoplo
pulled through and lived. Last year,
with a shorter crop, they still lived, and
have an extra 981,000,000 Jingling in their
Prosperity in tlie South. Pi
"This year they are living again, and 7*
with almost two million dollars extra A
money they are the best rewarded ngrir
culturlsts In the world, and have money
with which to go Into cotton-mill Ne
building and the bettering of home sur- pit
roundlngs. From these ilgures," says ]
the editor, "we may Judge of the Immense
impetus given to enterprises of ?
all kinds In the south/'
The cotton industry, as with all oth- di
ers, has been, fostered by a protective D(
tariff, by the gold.standard, and by ex- ei
panslon.'or "imperialism." G(
Was there ever such a false prophet h,
aa Bryan In 189G? And yet, in spite of
the utter failure of all?each and every i0
one?of his forecasts, he Is again ask- ^
ing the people to vote for him, and pre- (
dieting the overthrow o( the republic in Lt
case he is not elected. Mi
Is It possible that Bryan can fool Mi
enough voters this year with his
trumped-up issues to enable him to c
reach' the goal.he has been hustling for Ml
since his last defeat? To say '"yes"
would be an insult to the intelligence ^
of the people. CHARLES H. COE.

The stock market rellected the opor- Hi
atlons of professional dealers on a lar- j*'
ger scale to-day than for a long time *lr
past, as a result of the arrival in New
York from summer outings of the majority
of the^more influential element
among the professionals. The market ^
advanced with a considerable show of
animation and strength. The move- r
ment was clearly apart from any am
forced demand from the short Interest vci
such as played a large part In the spas- clo
modic upward movements of last week, vis
This was made clear by the compara- pr<
tivc heaviness all day, of stocks which ^
have shown the most pronounced weakness
lately and In which a distressed on
short interest would naturally make it- bui
self most evident. Notwithstanding the
strength shown by the bull contingent, R0C
they were unable to maintain prices to wo
the close and the tone was therefore
heavy at the end and prices were con- No
sJdernbly off (ion} the best. Because an
of the brokers who were employed In "u
the buying, the rumor circulated on the ro1
exchange that it represented operations
for the account of a well known steel bw
magnate, who hus already electrified vei
Wall street on one occasion this year slr
and who Is known to command an Inlluentlal
following. The pleasure of the *w
room traders in this hypothesis was not
altered by the quietness of AmerJcan b0i

uio.. lv it itc, n iiivu lurtcu me umiers
to the explanation adopted by the Jeal- ret
oua husband In the play that "the ab- C01
sence of all signals must In Itself be a
signal." The movement centered In ?01
Union Pacllle,. which was absorbed In a a
very confident manner and in v?ry ca'
heavy blocks all day. An extreme rise 1
of 2*4 resulted. The southwestern rail- slr
roads moved somewhnt In sympathy, nK
but not so widely. New York Central
and the Cleveland. Cincinnati, Chicago ,
& St. Louis stocks were strong, intluenced
apparently by the rumors that Kc
the latter is to be absorbed by the for- ca
mer as other subsidiary roads have al- a"
ready been absorbed. The leading In- *7'
dustrlals. the local tractions and some
of the steel stocks rose from 1 to 2,?
points and Pressed Steel Car rose an f,u
extreme 2>4. A raid in the late dealinps
on Tennessee Coal, which carried
more stock iy,c under Saturday unset- V*
tied the market. The conl strike seem- lfni
ed to be ignored and the coalers aa a IUJ
whole moved contrary to the market. ,
The professional bulls expressed great- 8t
ly Increased confidence over the money
, outlook, notwithstanding an advance In ?"'
the call rate on the exchange to 2,,jj per LHJ
: cent. The continued marked weakness }
of sterling exchange, which was quoted
%c to the pound under the Friday rate *?
for demand sterling, gave further i-i
ground for the expectation that gold f
may come in from Europe. Discount "P
rates were slightly eanler in London, VI
and there was a relaxation also in Her- *
lln, where the jellef there is great at {
the successful termination of the stock *
exchange settlement. The easing of .the ?c(
money rate at these centres in spite of f
the suggestive decline of exchange ?
rates at New York leads to some claims
that the dilllcUltleR hr>forr> the fnrnli'n
money markets have been exaggerated,
and that gold can be spared for New "
York without precipitating a crisis. It
cannot be said that this view moots
with much favor outside the specula- c
tlve element which wa? engaged in putting
up prices to-day.
