If we are defeated in this campaign, there is nothing before the people but four years more of harder times and greater agitation.—Prom a speech made in Baltimore, Md., by Mr. Bryan September 1!), 18!)0. Wage earners know that while a gold standard raises the purchasing power of the dollar, it also makes it more difficult to obtain possession of the dol lar they know that employment Is less permanent, loss of work more prob able, and re-employment less certain. —Prom a speech made in Madison Square Garden, New York, by Mr. Bryan, August 12, 1800. The gold standard means dearer money dearer money means cheaper property cheaper property manna harder times harder times means more people out of work more people out of work means more people destitute.— From an address to the women of Min neapolis by Mr. Bryan, October 12, 18! Mi. The following is an excerpt from a signed article published in New York, January 1, IS'.iS, by Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, and a democrat. "That terrible period for the wage earners of this country which began in 1S!)3 and which has left behind it such a record of horror, hunger, and misery, practically ended with the dawn of the year 1S'.)7. Wages had been steadily forced down from till toward the end of IS!)."), and it was variously esti mated t'ha.t between two million and two and a half million wage earners were unemployed." The following is a quotation from the report of President Gompers at the convention of the American Federation of Labor held in Detroit on December 11, 1890: "The revival of industry which we have witnessed within the past year is one for general congratulation, and it should be our purpose to endeavor to prolong this era of more general em ployment and industrial activity. In this effort no power is so potent as or ganized labor, if we but follow a right and practical course. "It is beyond question that the wages of the organized workers have been increased, and in many instances the hours of labor either have been re duced or at least maintained. "The report which your officers are enabled to submit to this convention, so far as the growth and progress of our movement during the past year are concerned, is of a most gratifying character." Mr. Gomper's statements comprise the most positive contradiction of Mr. Bryan's prophesies regarding the mis ery and destitution which laboj would suffer in the event of the election of McKinley in 1890, but a few figures will emphasize still more how false a prophet the democratic nominee for president is. Since Mr. McKinley became presi dent artisans and journeymen every where have received increases in wages ranging from 5 to 40 per cent. Reports made by national and inter national unions in April, woo, show, among others, these specific advances in wages in 18!)!): Bricklayers, stonemasons, boiler makers, iron shipbuilders, bookbinders, core makers, electrical workers, meat cutters, 25 per cent bicycle workers, 'Jo per cent locomotive engineers, pat tern makers and printers, 3» per cent mine workers and machinists, 40 per cent coil hoisting engineers, 50 per cent seamen, 33 per cent brewery workmen, bakers, boot and shoe work ers. lace curtain operatives, carpen ters, stationary firemen, 'longshore men. leather workers, tin plate work ers, trunk makers and wood workers, 15 per cent cotton spinners, 22 per cent broom makers, brickmakers, blacksmiths, cooipers, cig-armakers, lo comotive firemen, horseshoers, iron molders, metal workers, papermakers, tailors, the lavers, railroad laborers, waiters and cooks, 10 per cent glass bottle blowers, 8 per cent iron, steel and tin workers, 17 per cent street railway employes, 12 per cent: textile workers, 12',o per cent stage employes, tMi per cent. But substantial increases in wages were obtained also in the years 1S:»7 and 18!8 by many of the classes of labor mentioned in the foregoing. In 1*:t7 bricklayers and stonemasons, horseshoers, 'longshoremen and ma chinists received advances of 10 per cent mine workers and potters, 12 per cent and many others from 8 to 8 par cent. In 1898 some of the in creases were as follows: Bicycle workers, boilermakers, iron shipbuild ers,, brewery workmen, bookbinders, coal hoisting engineers, horseshoers, printers, street railway employes, trunk makers and upholsterers, 10 par cent bricklayers, stonemasons, loco motive engineers and coremakers, 12 per cent electrical workers and mine workers, 25 per cent stationary en gineers, 20 per cent: leather workers, machinists and pattern makers, 15 per cent tobacco workers, wood workers and carpenters, 8 per cent. INCREASE OF VALUE OF FARM PRODUCTS. Mr. Bryan and his followers are having a hard time in convincing the farmers that they are worse oft under protection and sound money in 1!)00 than they were under free trade and the shadow of free silver in 1890. The statements upon which they attempt to prove this are that the prices of ar ticles of farm consumption have ad vanced more rapiidly than those of ar ticles of farm production. A general comparison of prices of articles of farm consumption and farm production at the two dates of 1890 and 1900, however, completely dis proves this theory. The little table printed bellow, showing the value of farm animal* ou January 1, 1892, 1896, and 1900, Is an illustration of this fact. It Is worth studying. Horses, cattle, sheep, and all farm animals decreased enormous ly iu value in 18!)0 as compared with 1892, and increased enormously in 1000 as compared with 1890. The value of horses and mules, for in stance, fell from a little over one bil lion dollars in 1892 to i03 million dol lars In 1890, and despite the treme dous displacement of horse3 by the use of electricity in cities since that date, have again returned to 715 mil lion dollars in 1S»00—a gain to the farmers of 112 million dollars in this item alone. In cattle the increase is much greater, the value in 1890 being 872 million dollars and in WOO one billion two hundred and four million dollars, an increase of 332 million dollars over 1806. In sheep the reduction of value by low tariff and advance in value undor protection is even more strongly marked. The value of sheep on farms fell from 110 million dollars in 1892 to 05 millions in 1800, but again in creased under protection to 122 million in 1900, thus practically doubling in value in the brief period sin'ce Mr Bryan was preaching free trade and free silver to the country four yeai-a ago. Taking the entire list of farm ani mals reported by the department of agriculture, the value fell between the protection year 1892 and the free trade year IS'.Mi from $2,401,(KM),000 $1,727,000,000, and increased again to $2,212,000,000 on January 1, 15)00. Here is a gain of nearly $500,000,000 in this single item of farm property No wonder very few farmers are found who want to go back to the free trade experiment of 1803-07: VALUE OF ANIMALS ON FARMS JANUARY 1, 1892, 1890, AND 1000.

As the time for the election ap proaches, it is pertinent to consider the matter of county nominations for office. The same principle applies locally as in the greater national fig".it —that of indorsing a good administra tion. The republicans of the county have indorsed the administration of county affairs, with which there can be no just dissatisfaction. The men named for office have been proven in worth. The legislative ticket is one whose election will insure the county its usual influence in legislative af faiirs. Senator Little's ability and legislative experience is beyoad question, and he will be ably sup ported in the lower house by Messrs. Hare and Reade. In county affairs, the republican nominees are men whose official actions speak for them selves. Sheriff Bogue, who is a can didate for re-elect'ion, has made as good an official as any county has ever had. His administration has been economical, and notwithstanding the fact that he has had some dis agreeable duties to perform, they were done properly and in a manner that reflected credit upon him. Audi tor Moorhouse's qualifications for the office to which he is a candidate for re-election, are well known. He has been always careful, accommodating and attentive to his work. The office could not be in better hands. W. A. Falconer for treasurer is thoroughly qualified for the position, by his long experience as deputy, and is trust worthy and able. E. C. Taylor, candi date for commissioner is an old res ident of the county, a good business man, and such qualifications are es pecially necessary in the office to which he is a candidate for election. What is true cf the men named is true of the ticket. States Attorney Allen lias been diligent, and his active pros ecution of the cases that have come to his atttention has resulted in the minimum c° crime and misdemeanor through the county. This is a repub lican year, when the opposition is straining every nerve to undermine and defeat the republican party. Re', publicans will hardly give aid and comfort to the enemy by failing loy ally to stand by their own tickets, na tional, legislative and county. Governor Roosevelt is being greeted by immense crowds In Nebraska. He has invaded the enemy's country and found many friends there. Mr. Bryan would do well to look to his own state. Chairman' Lindsay, of the Nebraska republican committee, tells tnis story of conditions in his stdte: "Bryan is not nearly as strong as he was four years ago. If it were not for the fact that Nebraska is his home, he would stand no show whatever of se curing the electoral vote, and if affairs keep going on as they have during the last month, 'he will have little show of success. Bryan's false prophesies of 1890 are coming back upon him, and will tell agaAnst him on election day. There has been a remarkable JS- BISMARCK WEEKLY TRIBUNE: FRIDAY:, OCT. 12, 1900. change in the political belief of the Nebraska farmers. .Four years ago they worshipped Bryan, while today they are outspoken against him. This year the midroad populists have nom inated their own ticket. Four years ago they were all for Bryan. The silver republicans are nearly all back in their own party. The prosperity which Nebraska has experienced in the McKinley administration has been a great object lesson to all who were suffering from hard times in 1890. I can safely say that McKinley and Roosevelt will carry the state." THE SAME OLD BRYAN. One of the figures much in evidence this year is "The New Bryan." He is a great favorite with people who put themselves on record in 1890 as utter ly and forever opposed to the prin ciples of the,Chicago platform and the dangerous fanatic who was their chief advocate, but now are trying to find excuses for accepting his leadership .if their party, since they cannot shake it off. "The New Bryan," they assure us, is not the rhetorical demagogue of four years ago. He is a thoughtful, ripened statesman, who has learned to be conservative, who does not attack financial, and business security as he did in 1890, who does not contemplate paveking the supreme court to secure an income tax, who does not call for restraints upon the law so as to per mit mobs to riot without injunction, leaving their victims only the subse quent refuge of damage suits against irresponsible men. "The New Bryan," we are told, is the present democratic candidate for president, and an en tirely different person from the old Bryan, whom even the admirers of "The New Bryan" admit the country most justly feared and repudiated. Let us see where this "New Bryan" is to be found and how much he really dif fers from the old Bryan. William Jennings Bryan, the dem ocratic candidate for president, in a campaign speech at Zanesville, Ohio, on September 4, 1900, declared: "The party stands where it did in IS'.Mi on the money question." Is that "The New Bryan?" It cannot be. He must have been taking a vacation and sur rendered the platform to the old Bryan, who has said: "If there is any one who believes the gold standard a good thing, or that it must be maintained, I warn him not to cast his vote for me, because I promise him it will not be maintained in this country longer than I am able to get rid of it." It must be that "The New Bryan," while devoted to silver inflation, like the old Bryan, is still to be endured by conservative people if at all because of changed views on other dangerous topics. Perhaps he is no longer the advocate of free riot. Yet the demo cratic candidate, Mr. Bryan, in his Labor day speech at Chicago declared that it was an outrage for a court to intervene to prevent crimes by sum mary process, but that it should wait till after the crimes were committed and the irreparable wrongs done to punish the rioter as it would punish a thief. That seems to be the same old Bryan who promised the Coxey bum mers that there would be no signs of "keep off the grass" when he was president to forbid them trespassing on others' rights. HANNA IN SOUTH DAKOTA. Senator H'anna's presence in South Dakota ought to be beneficial in con vincing the peps down that way that his horns are not as long as the dem ocratic speakers have pictured them, that his feet are not cloven and that there is no odor of sulphur about him that he brought from the infernal re gions this trip. Senator Hanna's speeches make the democratic and populist spellbinders dislike him worse than ever, and it taxes their inventive genius to the ut most to devise language sufficiently lurid to paint the man from Ohio. Cro'xcr frit: 3 Ilaima. lie iia'tos him becausc Hanna has prodded him. If there is anything that sliculu con vince the world mat Ilanna is all right it is the hatred of Croker. Bryan hates Hanna, too. He hates him because Hanna has a disagreeable way of putting the democratic presi dential candidate into the hole, from which all his specious talk will not avail to help him out. Hanna has the democratic leaders explaining. Their explanations are weak. Hanna is making good com mon sense speeches through the coun try. His trip to the northwest will be a good thing. We would like to see hlni? in North Dakota. A gem from one of Senator McCura ber's speeches: "As you listen to the whirr of the wheels of industry, the ring of the hammer and anvil, the song of the shuttle and loom, the roar of the mighty furnaces, and the 'heart throbs 'of the great engines of indus try as you look into the homes of millions of our laborers, 'radiant with peace and joy and hope aa you look from ocean to ocean, from gulf to boundary line over one of the most prosperous countries on the face of die I 00 I I A YEAR. THE The Hottest Heat Filter Plants of Europe Bacteriology in Commerce The Inside of the Earth THE DEMOCRATIC FORECAST. The democratic campaign managers have given out their first forecast of the coming election for the presidency. It is a peach, and that word hardly ex presses it. Mr. Bryian is given 320 electoral votes and Mr. McKinley 94. A few are classed as doubtful, making it possible, according to democratic managers for McKinley to get at the ou'fcside a total of 127 electoral votes. The states which are placed in the Bryan column are: Alabama, 11 Arkansas, 8: Califor niia, 0 Colorado, 4 Delaware, 3 Flor ida, 4 Georgia, 13 Idaho, 3 Illinois, 24 Indiana, 15 Kansas, 10 Ken tucky, 13 Louisiana, 8 Maryland, 8: Mississippi, 9 Missouri, 7 Montana, 3 New York, 30 i\evada, 3 Nebras ka, 8 North Carolina, 11 North Da kota, 3 Ohio, 23: South Dakota, 4 South Carolina, 0 Tennessee, 12 Texas, 15 Utah, 3 Virginia, 12 Wis consin, 12 Wyoming, 3. The states which Mr. Johnson, sec retary of 'the executive committee, per mits Mr. Manley to keep in the repub lican Column are: Connecticut, (i Iowa, 13 New Hampshire, 4 Massa chusetts, 15 Oregon, 4 Pennsylvania, 32: Rhode Island, 4 Vermont, 4 We^J Virginia, 0. The doubtful states, according to Mr. Johnson's forecast, are: Michigan, 14 Minnesota, 9 New Jersey, 10. We are led to wonder why the demo cratic managers gave Mr. McKinley any votes at all. Why, when the committee was making a jackass of it self in the matter of claims, did not Secretary Johnson claim that the elec tion of Bryan would be unanimous? If anything were needed to prove •that the democratic campaign is one of wind and bombast, this "election es timate has done it. Investigation shows that the Color ado ruffians who interrupted and as saulted Governor Roosevelt laid their plans several days in advance. One of the republican party of visitors at Victor was Senator Lodge of Massa chusetts, and he describes what hap pened in a communication in a Boston paper. He says he never witnessed such a scene in any public meeting, and that the hooting was at the flag and uniform of the Uniteu States, along with shouts of "Coeur d'Alene"' and "bull pen.". Senator Lodge re marks: I: "I believe from very suffi cient evidence (that the whole aittack was delibeTately planned by.the Bryan leaders in Colorado." Curtis Guild, of Boston, also states that "We saw horsemen taking a short cut to town, and were told that they notified thugs and hoodlums to. form on the railway platform. The mob carried rough crosses, suggested by Bryan's Chicago speech. The chief animus of the mob was general hostility against law and order, and against the army and mili tia as representing law."

MCCIjURE COMPANY 200 East 25th Street NEW YORK CITY NEW YORK earth, without a single idle mill or the necessity of an idle man the smoke of thousands of furnaces curl ing to the clouds, an incense of thank fulness by day and the fires of thous ands of furnaces illuminating 'the black arch of heaven by night—in the name of God and patriotism, in the name of home and humanity, what complaint have you to make against the. grand old republican party?" and wherever he speaks he is making a good impression. Typical of the comments being made upon the ad dresses of the republican candidate for attorney general is the following from the Northwood Gleaner: It was with much pleasure that we listened Wednesday evening at Kemp ton to the remarks of O. D. Comstotck, candidate on the republican state ticket for attorney general. Mr. Comstock gave conclusive evidence that the charges against him as states attorney of Benson county were with out foundation, and that he had faith fully performed his whole duty in the capacity of thait official. He read newspaper extracts by ministers of the gospel and others commending him for his vigorous prosecution of blindpig cases and other violations of the state laws. Those who listened to his defense of the charges against him must concede that it was an able, one, and completely cleared him of the accusations. 'He called attention to the fact that the State platform con tained a prohibition plank, and affirmed in an earnest and most em phatic manner that if elected attorney general of the state he would do all in 'his power to see that the prohibi tion law was rigidly enforced, as wall as all other laws of the state. The editor of this paper is a prohibition ist and is in hearty sympathy with the prohibition cause, apd would regret the election of an attorney general who would fail to use his efforts to en force the prohibition law. He is convinced, as he believes are all who heard Mr. Comstock, that he will make an able attorney general, and will do his whole duty in the enforcement of the prohibition and all other laws ol the state. Candidate Bryan did not strike much fire in his travels through North Da kota. Of his address at Grafton the Walsh County Record says: As the gifted orator proceeded, a death-like silence fell upon the aud ience. So absorbed was the throng that even the speaker's best rounded sentences failed to bring out anything but desultory applause, in fact we have never seen so orderly and un demonstrative a crowd assembled in our city before. Applause even when started from the platform found no general response among the listeners. The monotony was somewhat relieved by a kid in the audience whose fal setto voice about every three minutes rang out over the silence with "Youi-rs all right, Billy." Bryan did not at tempt to argue perhaps his time was too limited. He laid bare what he denominated as the mistakes of the republican party and pulled down the whole fabric of government as It now exists, but had nothing to offer in its stead. He raised the old cry of the classes against the masses, and catered to the masses by a suggestion that all wealth should be equally distributed. He said pull down the flag in the Philippines, but this sentiment met with no response in Grafton even among the democrats, who know so well the brave boys of Co. C, who fought so bravely for "old glory" and ithe honor and integrity of our country in the island of Luzon. John Soott, auditor of Grand Forks county I was looking over the rec ords of the county today and I find that in 1890 we sold 1,805 pieces of farm lands for taxes of 1895, while last year we sold but 248 pieces for 1898 taxes. j" COPY.
