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.*’
