Democratic Committee Issues
a Statement.
Great Bryan Gains Tend to
Insure a Great National
Washington, D. C., Oct. 23.-The
Democratic National Committee is.
sues the following statement of the
situation :
A tidal wave of Democracy is
sweeping over the country, and in'li.
cations now point to the greatest
popular majority for Bryan next
mouth ever given to any Democratic
Presidential candidate. The great
popular uprising in favor of Bryan is
not confined to any particular section
of the country. It is universal The
sign is in the sky and it spells
It is universally conceded, even by
the Republican leaders, that Mr.
Bryan has lost nothing of the
strength he had in 1896, when lea.
than 25,000 votes, properly distri
buted, would have electel him. It
therefore follows that this year he
will receive at least as many votes as
in 1896, plus the natural increase in
the number of young Democratic
voters who have come of age since
the last national campaign. But
this year Mr. Bryan has many ele
ments of strength which he lacked in
1896, and which are sufficient to
insure him a tremendous majority,
both in the popular vote and the
Electoral College.
In 1896 the German vote went
almost entirely for McKinley. This
year Mr. Bryan will receive, by th,.
most conservative estimate, 60 per
cent of this vote. A gain of 10 per
cent in the German vote alone is
sufficient to carry several of the
so called doubtful states and elect
the Democratic national ticket.
Four years ago the labor vote was
largely given to McKinley on the
alleged "prosperity" issue. This
year the vote of organized labor,
numbering hundreds of thousands,
will be cast for Bryan. This vote
alone is sufficient to carry sever;l
"doubtful" states for Bryan and
In 1896 the "Gold Democrats" left
the regular organization on the Lnan
cial issue, and they claim to have
cast 1,000,000 votes, most of which
were given direct to McKinley. Thi
year the "Gold Democrats" recog
nizing that their contention has for
the time being been settled by statute,
have returned to the old party and
fully 80 per cent of them will vote
for Bryan. This vote insures a saf.
Democratic majority in several close
In 1896 a large majority of the
Irish vote was cast for McKinley
This year this vote will be given to
Bryan and this alone means success
In several important states which
four years ago gave their Electoral
vote to McKinley.
The Holland vote, which has
always heretofore been Republicans,
will this year go over to Bryan with
a practical unanimity because of the
unfriendly attitude of the Adminis
tration toward the struggling Boer
republics. In three or four impor
tant states this vote holds the balance
of power.
The anti-imperialistic vote will be
ca st for B:yan next month. This is

a new and unknown quantity in
national politics, but the leaders of
the movement claim that in one
pivotal state slone they have 100,000
voters enrolled and that these are
drawn almost exclusively from the
ranks of the Republicans. In a l
score of other states this vote is also I
said to be very large.
The reform vote will be given
almost unanimously to Bryan this
year. Heretofore it has been scat
teaed about through numerous small
party organizations, where It has not
made itself felt. but in the aggregate
it is a great power. This includes i
the Single Taxers, the Direct Legits
lationists, the "Golden Rule" Jones
people (106.000 in Ohio,) and many
others, aggregating considerably more
than one million votes.
The independent vote of the coun
try, which in late years has been such I
an important factor in determining (
elections, will this fall be cast solidly
for Bryan. This alone is suffcient
to decide the election in certain
States and give the national victoryI
to the Democracy.
In 1896 the vote and influence of
the country were given to McKinley I
and It has often b en alleged that I
this was the deciding influence of the I
last national campaign. This year
the traveling men are almost unani
mously for Bryan, and they are
working as hard for him as they did I
for McKinley in 1896.
In 1896 a large portion of the
prohibition vote of the country was
cast for McKinley, under a mistsken
impression. This year every prohi
hltion vote not given to Bryan will
undoubtedly be cast for Mr. Wooley.
Certainly McKinley will receive none
of them. In addition to this, one c
great religious society has deemed it
necessary to start an endless chain I
of prayer against the re election of I
the incumbent of the White House,
and this will certainly affect thou
sands of church voters who gave him
their support four years ago.
And then there are thousands of
*u*nselentious and patriotic Republi
cans who have been obliged to re
nounce their party, or.its candidate,
because of the bold and glaring
corruption which has marked it,
administration of public affairs, and
who will this year vote and work for
lUr. Bryan. This condition is some
thing unprecedented in American 4
politics and is in itself more than
sufficient to overcome the small ad
verse popular majority against Bryan
four years ago.
As against this tremendous and
overwhelming change in popular
sentiment in favor of the Democratic
cation ticket the Republicans have
nothing to fix their hope on except 1
Hanna's corruption fund. And this 1
will not sofice. Four years ago
every man who could be bought or
coerced was handled by the Republi
can managers. They can do no
worse this year. But the elements
mentioned above, who have joined
the Democratic ranks since 1896 are
not purchasable. They have come
over to the Democratic party and its
candidates from principles and are in
the fight to stay. These are the true
e.ements of American greatness, be
cause they represent the best citizen
ship, the highest thought and the
truest conscience of the American
people. The issue is sharply defined
between the republic and the empire,
and the Ipeople will win, as they have
always won every great political
battle in our history. The Bryan
tidal wave is sweeping over thbt
whole country, gaiming .tr-ugth cevery

Some of the recent expernenes of
the Brittimh in the Transvaal are
clearly explainoed by a letter from
Oen. De Wet, which has just been
published. He writes: "My farm
has been destroedal, my louse burned
and my property looted. My sons
have been killed in Ibattle and my
wife has dital of a broken heart, bIt
I shall not surrender. I shall resist
to the end. The war shall not cease."'
Pity that he has not 50,000 good
men to back him.

Land of monopoly,
Of thee I sing;
Land where our freedom died
Land of the "Combines" pride;
From ev'ry ocean's side
My col'nies spring.
My Empire, 'tie in thee
My upbuilt trusts are free;
Heaven bless their fate;
We love their checks and bills,
Safeguards 'gainst party ills,
My heart with rapture thrills
Trusts "pay the freight."
Let cannon boom and kill
Let salres drink their fill
Of brothers' blood,
While I, my ensign float
O'er all the Isles remote;
Ring outl loud empire's note,
On field and flood.

I turn for leniency
To thee 1 cling;
Filled shall thy purses be
With toil's unwilling fee,
From dark brown hands o'er the sea,
Red gold I bring I

We Peed Sleep.
One of the medical journals pleads
hard for more sleep for every one, and
*especially for medical men, who are
cut short of "nature's soft nurse." How
doctors are to get their extra hours Is
not suggested, but the average pems
to recommended to emulate the dor
mouse and learn to "drop or" at sun
dry times and In divers places. U*
doubtedly it Is true that, while we are
particular nowadays about our food,
our sanltation. our exercise and gIner
ai hygiene, we seem to fancy that we
can do with less and less sleep.

Its advantages. It would be awetWha,
