A committee, headed "by Senator

lis respects ir. coraplimentaty manler
to a number of Democratic offiers
and leaders of the convention.
Reviewing the struggles of the
)emocratic party, Mr. iBryan said:
"After 16 years of waiting our party
ntered the White House and fortuately
we won the senate and the
ouse at the same time. Our party

'Today those who stand for the

Briefly Mr. Bryan then referred, to

"No president since Jackson," said
Ir. Bryan, "has had to meet such an
nhoiy combination of the powers of
igh finance, and even Jackson himelf'
never met the situation better
han Wood-row Wilson met it. We
;ave just commenced to learn what

"luis great piece of legislation, the
greatest piece of constructive statesQanship
in a generation, has not only
>roken the hold of Wall street upon
he business of the ttation, "but it has
roken the grip of Wall street upon
he politics of the United States. For
0 years there has not been an elecion
but what a hundred men in Wall

"Here v.^e three ^re^t measures, j
' arry'r.g < it tl promise of a Demo- j
! c-ratic plau"n:m and these three great j
| measures constitute a record of j
; achievement which the Republican j

| "The electorate before which the I
Republican party must now go Is not S
controlled as the Chicago convention I
was by the expert representatives of |
the favor seeking corporations.
"While our president and our con- j
gress were at work constructing this !
splendid pyramid of performances a
war came that threw upon this ad- j
j ministration such burdens as no pres-!
! ident has had to bear within the last
j ?
i 50 vears. We inherited from a Re
publican administration an insurrec-1
tion in Mexico. This administration ;
has dealt with that situation and the
Republican party dare not challenge;
a verdict -before the country on the ;
Mexican question.
"We.have a few men interested in i
ranches, and a few interested in!
mines, who would use the blood of i
American soldiers to guarantee profits j
and their investments in a foreign !
land. But that is not the sentiment of !
the American people. The people of !
this country stand back of Woodrow
Wilson in his determination not to!
intervene in the affairs of Mexico.
"Why, my friends, if President Wilson
yielded to the demand of those
in Mexico we would no sooner have j
crossed the line than the same men
would tell him that the soldiers must
never come out, for, my friends, annexation
is the next step after intervention
has been undertaken. And if
we. invade Mexico these same men
would say, 'On to Panama.'

"But, my friends, the president not
only has had to deal with war to the
scutlK of us, but with war to the east
of us.v My friends, I have differed
from our president on some of the
modes employed in this war, but I
am one of those who desire sincerely
that this nation shall not become a
participant in the dreadful conflict.
"We have a record upon which we
can aDDeal to the people for their i
Support, without fear and without
blush I believe the American people,
grateful for what this administration
has done, grateful that we
have peace in this country while war

"iMy friends, I believe there is now
before this country an opportunity ^
such as no other country has ever had
since the beginning of time. I believe
that God, in His providence, has
reserved for the United States the ^
honor and the task of lifting the morw
al code that governs individuals up to
the level of nations and making it a ^
part of-the code of all nations.
"There is a picture which has at- ^
tracted attention wherever it has been
seen?the picture of Christ before
Pilate. Pilate represented the power
of the Roman government and bacs
of him were the legions of Rome. 'Before
Pilate, helpless, unarmed, stood ^
the Apostle of iLove. For His triumph ^
they nailed Him to the tree and thoso
who stood around mocked and jeered
and said 'He is dead!' But that, in- ?
stead of being the end, was only the
Caesar Passes; Christ Lives. ^
"in a lew centuries me tpuwer ui
Caesar was gone and his legions for- c,
gotten. The power of Christ, however,
increased until hundreds, yes
thousands of millions of people, have s(
taken His name with reverence poa
their lips; millions have been reL?iy C{
to die rather than surrender the fa! h ^
that He put into their hearts. He has qi
become the great factor of all his- ^
tory, the glowing figure of all time, g
Today Christ and Pilate again stand e,
face to face and Force and Love are
again striving for mastery and domin- ^
ion. The old world represented force.
It built its hope of peace on fear and ^
threats of violence. h&en nation at- j
tempted to terrorize other nations _
into peace, and in their efforts they a,
engendered hatreds that ended in
war. V
"If the nations now at war had
spent one-tenth as much trying to
cultivate friendship as they have S
spent in trying to cultivate hatred,
there would be no war in Europe today.
"If I understand this nation's op- ^
Dr>rhinifv and this nation's task, it is n
to lead the world away from its false ja
p-hilosophy and help it to build its r<
hope of peace in the enduring foun- s
dation of love and brotherhood and 11
cooperation. j?

Information received in Columbia
/esterday would indicate that Fred D.
McLean, the young tutor at Newberry
college who mysteriously disappeared
May 14, has crossed the border of the
United States into Canada arid has
joined the forces of the Dominion in
i^ther Ottawa or Toronto. President
Harms of Newberry college explained
over the telephone last night that a
brother, W.. M. McLean, superior
tendent of public schools in Topeka,
Kan., intimating that all traces of his
movements led to this conclusion. The
brother in Kansas has been following
up all possible clues since his disappearance
last month. President
Harms further expressed the opinion
that he did not believe the young
man had been the ivictim of foul play
and believes that the matter will be
cleared up soon.
