DISGUSTED DEMOCRATS
REPUDIATE LEADER
Fernier Supporters of Bryan Assart
Their Manhood and Quit the
Continuous Office-Seeker.
Thousands of Bryanites Turn to Taft
as the Campaign Nears the Bnd—
Neither the “Cleveland Demo
crats” Nor the Independent Voters
Take Their Places and Bryan’s
Defeat Is Certain.
The thousands who formerly voted
for Bryan, but who refuse to endorse
that candidate’s latest plea to be elect
ed President, Include thinking men of
all occupations and conditions in life.
They are now convinced that Bryan is
too unstable and impractical to be en
trusted in power. They like to hear
him talk, but they tremble at the
thought of him in the White House.
As the campaign has neared the fin
ish the defections from the Democratic
party in favor of Taft and Sherman
have gained in volume and Tt has been
easy to sec the steady drift away from
Bryan. With his old followers leaving
him, the “Cleveland Democrats” still
refusing to lieed his advice, and the
absolute failure to add new recruits to
his cause, the chances of the Nebras
kan for success have decreased steadily
as Nov. 3 approached.
The Fear of Bryan.
The fear that the election of Bryan
will turn back the hands of the pros
perity clock, no one knows how many
years, is obvious all over the country
and the feeling is shared by business
men and laboring men alike.
Samuel Rosenthal of Baltimore, of
the firm of St rouse & Brother, one of
the largest clothing manufacturers in
the country, has expressed the belief
that the prosperity of the country and
the steadiness of business depend on
the election of Taft. Although a Dem
ocrat of many years’ standing, Mr. Ro
senthal says he will vote for the Re
publican cjuididates.
In Omaha a railroad man—one in
the ranks—was listening to Bryan
make one of his big campaign speeches.
He stayed until Bryan began to attack
Roosevelt and to ask “what has Roose
velt ever done?” The railroad man
quit the meeting, procured a Taft badge
and pinned it on his coat In place of a
Bryan button, which he threw away.
He said he had intended to vote for
Bryan, but that Taft would get his bal
lot.
Carllslo Not for Bryan.
Some of the Bryanites have been pre
dicting that John G. Carlisle would
take a stand for the “Peerless,” but
so far their prophecies have failed and
It Is said by men who are close to that
adamantine defender of sound govern
ment policies that he will not urge tin.*
election of Bryan.
Joseph B. Gill. Lieutenant Governor
during the administration of John P.
Altgeld ns Governor of Illinois, and a
lifelong Democrat, has announced that
he will vote for William H. Taft. Mr.
Gill, now a resident of California, reg
istered at the Palmer House, Chicago,
on his return from a visit to his old
home at Murphysboro. where he still
owns a daily Democratic newspaper.
In the lobby he met I*en Small of Kan
kakee, field general of the Yates forces
during the primary fight. “I have been
a Democrat all my life,” said Gill, “but
I am going to vote for Taft. Why?
Well, the reason is short and simple.
Taft represents the true Roosevelt prin
ciples and Bryan represents almost
anything for Bryan.”
An Incident from Nebraska.
Frank Currie of Gordon, Neb., for
merly a State Representative, relates
the following, which is extremely Il
luminating as regards conditions in
“Bryan's own Stute”:
“In my travels over Nebraska I have
been able to find but one Republican
who snya be Is going to vote for Bryan.
Another little incident shows the way
the wind Is blowing. Recently at din
ner twelve voters were seated. Eight
had voted for Bryan In 1890 and four
of the twelve had voted for him in
1900, but each and every one declared
that this year they were going to vote
for Taft. I thought for a minute they
might be trying to string me, but after
talking it over with them I saw they
were all sincere in their convictions.”
John W. Reynolds, a Confederate vet
eran, writing to the Baltimore Ameri
can, says:
“It is true deplorable conditions ex
ist through some parts of the country,
but at the time Mr. Bryan was at the
helm in Congress they existed every
where. Ask the manufacturers, the me
chanics and farmers and laborers of
the country. It was the period that
few have forgotten. Never will I, as
a Southern man from the grand old
State of North Carolina, four years in
the service of the Confederacy fighting
for a cause I believed to be right. If I
live I shall cast my vote for the Hon.
W| H. Taft and Sherman for the pres
idency and vice presidency."
California •■ffarlcr Taras Away.
R. M. Hoteling of San Francisco,
who has been a liberal contributor to!
Democratic campaign funds, refused to
do so this campaign and announced he
had gone over to the Republican cause.
George B. Jones, former president of
the Democratic Negro Jefferson Club
of St Louis, started bis audience cheer
ing at the meeting of the precinct or
ganization of the Missouri Negro Re
publican League Club at 2349 Chestnut
street when he told why be left the
Democratic ranks. He promised to try
to Induce the members of the Demo
cratic organisation to follow him.

letter, telling why he has quit Bryan.
In closing he says:
“Many other suggestions occur to me,
but these I have mentioned suffice to
determine me, not to abandon Democ
racy, but to vote for a candidate for
the presidency whose election will go
far to insure the prosperity, peace and
happiness of this great people.
“EDWARD J. MAXWELL.
"New York, Oct. 14, 1908.”
Every Community Has Taft Converts
Efforts of the Buffalo News to ascer
tain the sentiment in the smaller towns
of? western New York reveal the fact
that in every community are many for
mer Bryan men who declare they will
vote for Taft and the assurance of
prosperity.
Brig. Gen. Iloratlo G. Gibson, U. S.
A., retired, of Washington, says:
"I am a Democrat, but I don’t see
how the Democrats can supi>ort Mr.
Bryan. He docs not seem to stand
fqj any of the real principles of the
party, and If I had a vote for the pres
tffenev. I certainly should not cast it
f» him.”
P. L. Jones of Ardmore, Okla., has
written to the Ardmore Statesman, say
ing that although a Democrat, he will
break “a custom that has been a fam
ily pride since the Civil War" and will
vote for Taft. Bryan’s connection with
Haskell was the last straw for Mr.
Jones.
Frank 11. Jones of Chicago, who was
First Assistant Postmaster General for
four years under Mr. Cleveland, said:
“Mr. Bryan favors the guaranteeing
of bank deposits and has committed
the Democratic party in its platform
and in his public speeches to this un
sound and dangerous doctrine. It must
be admitted that on economic ques
tions affecting the farmer, the me
chanic, business and country generally,
either Mr. Bryan is dangerously un
sound or lie is willing to mislead the
people and threaten their prosperity
by advocating measures he knows to be
unsound, merely because for the mo
ment his views seem popular.
“I do not want to see the prosi»erlty
of this country threatened by unsound
experimental policies such as Mr. Bry
an’s past career proves he is too prone
to indulge In.
“Business confidence must be main
tained, the factories kept busy and
labor employed and the farmer must
not be disturbed in the prosiierity he
is now enjoying.
“The calm, forceful, intelligent and
conservative attitude of Mr. Taft in
aft of the important questions affecting
the public good assures us of continued
progress.
"To risk Mr. Bryan is dangerous to
our business prosperity.”
Enoouraiceiuent to Swindler*.
“Banks would be pretty nearly as nu
merous ns barrooms if Bryan's scheme
for guaranteeing national hank deposits
should ever become a law,” said Josinh
D. Dinkel, of Boston, who travels over
a large part of the country in the in
terests of a financial publication. I
coifne into contact with prominent bank
ers all over the United States aud I
have not talked with a single one who
is in favor of the scheme to guarantee
deposits, mainly for the reason that
they cannot see how anyone would be
protected. They also think that the
pljin would encourage, rather than pre
vent, dishonest methods. Why, Just
think how It would work out. Any
faker who could, by hook or by crook,
get a bank charter and persuade people
to deposit money In the bank, could
pack bis grip with the deposits and de
camp. The worst of It is that he could
get away with a comparatively clear
conscience, because lie would know that
the United States government, or some
mother banks, would reimburse the de
positors for what they had put In.”
In one of bis speeches last week Mr.
Taft remarked that “The tendency of
Mr. Bryan’s mind is toward a theory
that addresses Itself at once to the ap
proval of an audience and not one that
fits into the drafting of a statute to
accomplish anything.” This view help*
explain why Mr. Bryan gets so much
applause from an audience and so little
support at the polls. The sober second
thought is too much for him.—BL Loots

THE READY RUNNER.
BRYAN AND FREE WOOL
Not Anxious to Raise Price of Wool
for Benefit of Sheep Raisers.
But Would Lower Prices of Woolen
Goods for Benefit of Wearers.
In 1894, while a member of the
House of Representatives, Mr. Bryan
wrote the following letter to a constit
uent :
COMMITTEE OF WAYS AND
MEANS,
HOuse of Representatives,
Washington, D. C., Feb. 0. 1894.
Mr. V. Neuman, Oakland, Neb.:
Dear Sir —Your favor at hand. I
think you are right in saying that If
we prohibited the use of shoddy, either
directly or indirectly. It would Increase
the price of wool to some extent by in
creasing the demand for it. but it is
not expedient always to do everything
which It Is possible to do. I do not
think that the taxing power ought to
be used for any such purpose. I am
not so much interested in raising the
price of wool which will only benefit
those who raise sheep, as I am In low
ering the price of woolen goo<ls, which
will benefit all those who wear them.
Yours truly,
(Signed) W. J. BRYAN.
Bryan** Sophistry Show*.
'The American Bhcep Breeder in a
recent *BBIIO exposes the fallacy of the
Bryan contention as follows:
Bryan’s free wool sophistry is knock
ed Ir a cocked hat by facts and figures
as far as the "dear public” is con
cerned. Mr. Brynn doesn't believe in
building up a great national industry
like the wool Industry, at the expense
of the general public. Really, bow
much does the dear public have to pay
to maintain the wool iudustry of the
United States? Let us get down to
facte and figures. There are something
like one million men engnged in grow
ing w’ool, with about five hundred mill
ion dollars of capital Invested, with an
annual wool production of say from
fifty to sixty million dollars. Tbia fig
ure Is based on an average of 18 cents
per pound for the wool grown. In ad
dition to that, say fifteen million mut
tons are produced at a selling price of
uruuml sixty-five to seventy-five million
dollars. A fair valuation of the annual
production of wool anil mutton would
Ih» one hundred and twenty-five mill
ions. What the annual loss to this In
ti ustry would be under a free wool reg
ime Is well known. Instead of the
average of sny 18 cents per pound
(which is au extremely low figure for
wool under ordinary times) and the av
erage of about half that price for wool
(on a free trade basis) would mean
a loss to the wool grower of at least
twenty-five million dollars per year.
Wool growing In the West, under Cleve
land’s aduiinfstrntln. ruined thousands
of flockmnsters. Montana wools sold as
low as seven and eight cent per pound
under Cleveland. Two years ago these
wools brought anywhere from eighteen
to twenty-five cents per pound, and
even higher figures for exceptional
clips.
Free Trade No Btncat to CssraßW.
Now let us find out the cost of cloth
ing, and the so-called saving to the con
sumer. For a spring suit ef all-wool
clothes, three and one-half yards of
cloth are required. Ono yard of doth
welgbe ten ounces. This would require
a trifle over two pouuds of wool. A
fall suit requires three sod ooe-balf
yards at fourteen ounces to the yard,
or forty-nine ounces. The cost of cloth
ing represents 85 per cent In labor and
10 per cent In material. The ordinary
suit of clothing has 00 per cent of wool
and the balance le shoddy and cotton.
Suppose the tariff on wool were re
moved, that wool that bad been aver
aging 18 cents per pound fell 80 per
cent; the saving on a spring salt of
clothing would be a trifle under twenty
cents, providing the manufacturer and
the retailer cut down the price of the
garment to the extent of tho reduced
rains of tho wool sensed by a removal
of tlie tariff. On a fall suit of clothing,
based on the same figures and condi
tions, the cost would be reduced to I lie
extent of say 27 cents or therealniuts.
This means all-wool clothing, and does
not take Into consideration any shoddy
or cotton, which everybody knows Is
used extensively in low-priced gar
ments. As a matter of fact all woolen
clothing, or clothing made out of a
mixture of wool, cotton and shoddy,
never has, and never will, lie sold to
the consumer for one |>euuy less under
free wool conditions. Every school boy
knows that the cost of his clothing un
der ( levelaud's free wool reign was not
one cent reduced by tlie removal of the
tariff. Any reduction in the cost of
wool used In the manufacture of an
ordinary suit of clothing would be so
infinitesimal that any manufacturer.
Jobber, wholesaler or retailer would
laugh at the idea of the public saving
anything by the removnl of the tariff
on wool. It is the veriest nonsense to
consider this proposition for one mo
ment. We have, for our own satisfac
tto,n ireduced tlie possible cost of all
the woolen clothing used In the United
States for one year, providing the sidl
ing value of the goods were reduced to
the extent of the reduction In the price
of wool, and it reaches such a ridicu
lously low figure that It is not worth
mentioning. Everyone knows that our
manufacturers have to import about
twice the amount of wool w f e grow !n
tills country. Under ordinary business
conditions the tariff on wool has kept
the price up to a fair measure of profit
for the grower. No, gentlemen, wo want
no Bryan and free wool.
If Bryaa Should Ba Elcetal,
(From the Philadelphia Ledger. Ind.)
Two letters have boon received from
leaders who touch on the Intensely
practical aspects of the minimlgn. A
business man wishes to know what, hi
all human probability, w'ouid become of
business and of our wonted and desired
prosjierity If, perchance Bryan and n
Bryan administration should be chosen,
and a blunt, intelligent workingman,
whose letter Is too long for publication,
says that there is a “lot of blather** in
politics, and he w’ouid like to know*
what the ordinary skilled w'orkinan is
to “get” If Bryan Is elected and “what
Tuft has to offer.”
Those two inquiries embody n large
i*nrt of the pertinent question for the
mass of the nation, and the gist of the
answer may be given In a few words:
If Taft lie elected there will be rest, re
cuperation, confidence and prosperity;
If Bryan be elected there will be acute
danger of unrest, lack of coofidonce
and uncertainty at least for a long time,
and the probability of a prolongation
of resuscitation of that stagnation from
which the country is now by slow, la
bored and painful effort beginning to
recover.
The country is Just licglnnlng to re
cover from the industrial paralysis.

of the nation are rich; our Institutions
are all sound; every known factor and

REPUBLICAN
PLAN RATIONAL.
Neted Financial Expert Advises
Against In considered Action.
All Classes Interested In Retablisk
lng Bound Nanking System.
Victor Morawetz, recognized as an
expert upon financial and economic
questions, says the Bryan bank <kg>osit
guarantee plan would encourage "wild
cat” banking. These are excerpts from
a recent article written on the subject
by Mr. Morawetz:
If It were true that the adoption of
this plan would make all deposits In
natloual banks equally safe and there
by would inspire confidence In all na
tional bank deposits, as Mr. Bryan
claims, the plan would prove a direct
encouragement to “wildcat” banking
and would prove disastrous In the long
run. It would enable speculators or
inexperienced |*»r*ous to form a bank
with small capital and to obtain large
deposits ou the strength of the guar
anty, by offering higher rates of Inter
est to depositors than a conservatively
managed bank could afford to pay : and
they could then use these deposits In pro
moting speculative or unsound ventures.
They would only risk the loss of the
small capital which they contrib
uted and their individual liability for
an equal amount. If tlielr speculations
should succeed, they would reap large
profits, but tf their speculations should
fail and the money obtained from de
positors be wasted, the sound batiks
would have to bear the loss.
Republican Plan Rational.
Tlie Republican fsirty proposes to
deal with this banking question in s
rational, conservative manner. Having
regard to the difference between savings
deposits and those commercial deposit
liabilities which are merely bank cred
its created as a means of carrying on
the business of the country, the Repub
lican party proposes to establish a sys
tem of postal savings banks *o that the
tieoplo everywhere throughout the
country can deposit their savings with
absolute safety. A proposal bus ulso
lieen made, and, no doubt, will l>e con
sidered by Congress, of authorizing the
national banks to establish savings de
partments to he managed, under the sti
perrlslon of the Comptroller of tlie Cur
rency. according to the most approved
methods of munaglng savings banks.
The Republican party recognizes that
the United States should have the
soundest and safest system of hanking
and currency that can lie devised, and
to that end a Republican Congress has
upfiolnted a national cmuiitlnsioii. con
sisting of Senators and Representatives
of both the political parties. That com
mission Is now considering tlie subject
in all Its bearings, and after holding
public bearings will make Its recom
mendations to Congress at tlie earliest
opportunity.
