Ha t'liararlertsrs MrKiulej's until*, mb KMulullniiNrr A campaign circular of October 4, issued by John J. Valentine, Presi dent of Wells, Fargo A Co., contains the following: “Mr. I3ryen has ranged himself | and the great party behind him on the right side of the debate. Hej throws the whole organized power of tho Democracy into the tight against , the imperialistic programme. I “From the standpoint of all men ' , who are opposed to the revolution- | ary departure of the present admin- | istration, his course o» this issue, at least, is removed from censure. ; , Demur as some may to the party's i attitude on the financial question, : its position on the crucial test of our Democracy is right, and Mr. Brysi deserves the suffrages of the Araeri- | can people for having set it squarely , upon that footing. I "Those who think the dollar is moro important than the rights of . man can vote for Mr. McKinley. I shall vote for Mr. Bryan.” Mr. Valentine writes as follows in another of his circulars: “The unrighteousness of the Amer ican Republic in assuming imperial istic fuuctious as a so-called world power, and imposing ‘benevolent assimilation’ upon alien and unwill ing people is a costly luxury, and the people must foot the bills. If they are satisfied with such a course, well and good, but I can not coin cide. “As nine-tenths of all the voters have to earn their own living, it re mains to be seen it they will clelib erately place their liberty and wel fare in jeopardy to expedite the am bitious schemes of the more fortu nate. Eighteen months ago I be lieved Democracy would triumph, aud I now heartily hope so.*’ GENERAL NEWS SUMMARY.
