Professor Williartt E. Dodd. Randolph
Macon College. Ashland, Va;
My Dear Professor Dodd:
I have your letter of the 10th lnstan
asking what I thlnk and where I atam
ln this campaign. Party interests am
ties suually mean but little more ti
me in politlcs than ln history. M;
enrliest and most lasting politlcal en
thusiasms have been for the non
partisan reforms advocated by Georg
William Curtls, Davld A. Wells am
Carl Schurz; civil service reform ani
tariff reform with the tiitlmate ain
of a strlctly revenue system. Mucl
later thls school of reformers led th
oppositlon to what Is generally char
acterized as "inipevlallsm," that ls
oppositlon to foreign conquests, a co
lonial system and au extravagant an,
aggressive enlargement of the arm;
and the navy. To the monopoilsti
and unscrupulous trusts and corpora
tions and to the secret use of vas
sums of money in politlcs the oppo
sition has recently been thoroughl;
popular. Only liulivldiials and organi
zations that hoped to proflt by thes
evils have ventured to defend their
Such setm to me to be the leadln
lssues of the campalgn. I could no

What grosser vlolatlon of tho spirl

than for the President, who holds on
of the most dlgnliied ofllces on eartl

as such is glven special prerogatlve
and respect. to mlsapply tho grca

a member of his Cifblnet who othei

grosser, and that we havo aeen ar

pnign. The President, after taltln
dictatorial control of the Ttepublicn
national organlzatlon, and. by om

finally reached the garden. His com?

feet in one rislng wave of humanlty.
A flag was in the hands of every per?

scene, as the presldential candldate
made hls way through the alslea to
the stage, was strlklngly a repatition
of the ilemonstratlou at Denver when

color, the cheerlng and the music,
lasted for fourteen minutes before Mr.
Bryan. with uplifted hands, finally
secured tho sllence that permitted him
to proceed.
Mr. Bryan appeared tlred and worn
when he began to speak, but as he
proceeded tlie cheers of his hearera
seemed to Imbuo him with new
strength, and he spoke wlth all his
charactcrlstlc vigor. Hls voice, clear
and resonant as a bell, filled the big
garden to its farthest corners.
