millionaires to control the nation
through the upper house?
The democratic platform says yes.

COAL SHORTAGE THREATENED.
Unless ttie people of North Dakota
roake an effort to put in their coal
supply immediately, there is danger of a
repetition of "coal famine" conditions
which prevailed during the winters
1906-7: Up to the present time not
nearly enough coal, necessary to meet
the fall demand, has moved from Duluth
at the head of the lakes. The Great
Northern reports the supply moved to
points in North Dakota is fully twenty
five per cent less than at this time last
year. The trouble reems to be with in
dividual consumers more than retail
dealers. The people do not realize the
necessity for putting in their supply
early. There are approximately 3,600,000
tons of soft coab and SCO,000 tons of
hard coal on the docks at head of the
lakes now. Storage capacity is taxed to
the limit and serious shortage is bound
to occur unless the loads are given an
opportunity to get the coal out before
the grain movement sets in. By placing
orderB
now for immediate delivery, the
storage bins of the retailers, are relieved
thereby enabling them to restock at
once.
Taft is going after the farmers vote.
He has quit playing golf long enough to
have his picture taken in front of a hay
rack.
Nothing doing in the republican
papers last week about their candidate
for treasurer on the state ticket, who
was caught violating the game laws and
arrested at Minot.
Tho Valley City Times Record after a
gulp and mighty hard swallow is able to
sing "He's a Jolly Good Fellow—meainng
Boss Jim Kennedy of the wild animal
menagerie of the North Dakota g. o. p.
big show.
"Taft is popular in China," "Fil
ipinos favor Taft," run bold headlines
in newspapers. All this may be very
important to know—and it fills space so
that Bryan hasn't so much—but counts
for very little since the Orientals have
no part in the November elections.
Since "Old Hayseed," otherwise known
as Editor S. F. Mercer, got back into
harness the Lawton Leader is getting to
be a good paper to read. The Leader
plant it is rumored may be removed
from Lawton back to Larimore the town
of its birth some fifteen years since. It
is but natural to predict that the
political utterances of the paper will
from now on be democratic, it can hard
ly be otherwise if voicing Editor
Mercer's views of affairs political.
The article upon William Jennings
Bryan as a presidential candidate,
written by Professor J. C. Monaghan, of
Notro Dame university, is one of the
best written articles that has appeared
in print of its kind in our estimation
since the opening of the campaign. The
article is devoid of comparisons or
criticisms of other candidates than Mr
Bryan and what it says is not what
could by anyone be termed as a fulsome
eulogy, but an exhaustive analysis of
Bryan as found by the writer. Its read
ing will well repay the time expended
by any of our readers.
If with emphasis on the ''if—there
are any holders of government liquor
tax receipts in Cavalier county, who
have not published the same in the
COI'I:IKI:-DEMOCK.\T. one of the county
official newspapers, they are guilty of
violating the law, and there will be
something doing soon if the delay con
tinues. The law has been tested in the
state, and the courts have held it to be
good, hence the man who seeks to get
around it is inviting serious trouble for
himself. It does not makeany difference
whether he is "doing business" now or
not. The fact that he has had a receipt
issued in his name is enough- 1 he law
requires that he shall have the same
published to the world, so that people
may know.
The DK.MCN'KAT acknowledges the
receipt of a copy of the first annual
report of the state high schools. It is
compiled by Prof. R. lleyward state
inspector of high schools and is issued
in pamphlet form by the state depart
ment of education and gives some very
interesting information concerning tho
high schools of North Dakota. There
are 31 schools of the second class with
an enrollment of HO!) and '25 schools of
the third class with an enrollment of
•KiT., a total of3SGS pupils. The number
of teachers employed in the high schools
including superintendents
and principal
aggregates '24U. The report gives the
courses of study and information as to
the libraries, laboratory equipment
salaries of superientendents. suggestions
as to examinations, methods, qualifica
tions of teachers and other carefully
compiled data.
Merit must be admitted to a marked
degree when so radical a republican
paper as the Fargo Forum i-ay.-:
"Thousands of democrats from all
over the state paid tribute to Bryan, and
The Forum is not surprised at the en
thusiasm his presence created, lie is a
good, clean man, deserving in every way
of a large following. The Forum in
tends to do everything it can legitimate
ly to assist Mr. Taft's election--but it
has no fear that the country would go
entirely to the demonition bowwows—
should Mr. Bryan prove a surprise and
win out."
Again, the day following his powerful
speech at Fargo, the same paper adds
additional editorial comment in this
truthful manner:
"The Bryan who aroused the audiences
of 1896 to a maddening frenzy no longer
exists—but in his stead has arisen a
more mature and more clever speaker—
a man with whom every word counts—
a skilled artist. His gun no longer
scatters—his aimi is truer and his marks
manship more accurate. The Nebraskan
is a wholesome, lovable man of whose
sincerity there is little doubt however
much one may differ from his views of
public affairs. Fargoans—regardless of
their political faith—are glad he came
and that they had the opportunity of
paying their respects to the eloquent
commoner."
The automobile scorcher and his vic
tim are certain to meet under present
conditions, and the only way to avoid
the meeting Is to abolish the scorcher.
E* Thomas, turfman and financier,
who recently killed two horses and
narrowly escaped killing several peo
ple while driving a 120 horsepower
machine at a speed of seventy miles
an hour, has lost his New Jersey li
cense. A Jail sentence Is the only
thing that will curb the scorching pro
clivities of reckless motorists.
!06.
The first time I met Bryan he remind
ed Hie of Cicero. I said, "So must tho
young Cicero have appeared." I did
not think of Ca-sar then I never think
of Ctvsar now, when I see, hear of, or
read after, Mr. Bryan. Even the mature
man is suggestive, but no longer of
Cicero.
Is Bryan a radical? If so, is he
dangerous? The dangerous men in this
Republic are the men who think William
Jennings Bryan is dangerous, or that he
would be a dangerous President. Bryan
believes in law, he believes in order.
His whole life is full of facts, as well as
words, to prove it. He is no more a
dreamer than 1 am, than are hundreds
of his countrymen. I hope, as I would
to God that every man who ever knelt at
a mother's knee in this broad land, that
he is au idealist, that he has high ideals.
God only knows what the nation would
be now had it not had its idealists, its
Hancocks and Henrys, its Otises, and its
Lincolns and Lees. But, say some,
"Bryan is to bring in Government owner
ship of railroads, socialism, anarchy."
Nobody is in any doubt about the
dangerous men in this Republic. Some
are even to be found in railroad offices.
They are the unscrupulous men who
would run up the freight rates or run
down the wage-scale to pay dividends for
sublimely watered stock. Against these
Bryan is iron or brass. No! .Mr, Bryan
is not dangerous. That is the last thing
to think of in connection with his candi
dacy for the Presidency.
Is he tit? Bryan, bred in the brawn
and braiu breeding West, will bring to
Washington not only what he went there
with, in the early nineties, butthe ripen
ed result of fifteen year? of careful plow
ing, hoeing, reaping and harvesting of
the golden grain fields of the world. No
man has had such a chance to study,
not even Taft. No man ever made better
use of his time. On the basis of his
college education, Bryan has been able
to build up a superstructure surpassing
anything of which we have knowledge.
In a day that is dawning, when we are
to be one of the world's great p.jwers
politically as well as commercially, his
knowledge of the world's affairs, his
splendid share in the world's work, will
lit him for just such work as he will
find on his desk at Washington, D. C.,
every day, if he is elected President.
Our foreign affairs, not only because of
the Philippines, but because of our
Pacific coast and other Pacilic posses
sions, will take up much of his time.
Our rapidly increasing foreign commerce
will interest him. In extending it, he
may be able to direct it into new chan
nels, and secure success for it in old ones.
When in London, on his way home
from a trip around the world, he attend
ed the World's Peace Congress. His
speech was the best delivered before
that body his ideas, the noblest as well
as the most practical. Never was the
nation prouder of its Great Commoner
than it was that day and never had the
Republic better reason to be proud than
when he, one of the kingliest of her
sons, set a pace in peace of royalty. Not
all our efforts at The Hague, Portsmouth
Tokyo or anywhere else, were so fruitful
as thi6 man's one earnest, honest effort
in London, and which raised him to
heights high as Lincoln at Gettysburg,
Lowell in his great ode, Washington in
his farewell address, Jefferson in his
Declaration of Independence, Henry in
his address to the terrified Royalists.
God give him power to go on in tho good
work.
By a man's deeds is he best known.

I HJii COUKlER-DBMOCIiAT, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1908.
lion. William Jennings Bryan a
An Historical and Character Sketch of the Democratic Presidential Candidate
Written by J. C. Monoghan, Professor of History and Economics,
at Universlty of lndlana^at Netre Dame.
It is now twelve years since Bryan's
"cross of gold" speech in Chicago. The
echo of that speech still lives. Why?
Like all true eloquence, like the oration
for the crown, and the Philippics of
Demosthenes, it had in it the ring of
sincerity. Bryan rings true. In religion
in morals, in politics, in every pathway
of life, the great Nebraskan rings true.
This it is that gives him power. It is
this that has endeared him to the hearts
of our people and it is this that has
helped him to hold them, in spite of all
kinds of adverse efforts of his enemies'
down to the present day. Never, in all
our history, has a party been so loyal to
a man as the Democratic party has been
to Bryan. Neither Webster, nor Clay,
Blaine nor McKinley, could boast of
such loyalty and love. It is a mistake
to date the rise of Bryan from the Chi
cago convention of
He was in Con­
gress in 1892. He was active then,
energetic and aggressive. His work in
Congress gave great promise. No speech
on the tariff was as bold, clear, fearless
and far-reaching. It is to be regretted
that Mr. Bryan did not remain iD Con
gress. That was the place for him. His
"cross of gold" speech was the worst
mistake he ever made. It was the mis
take of his life. It led him from the
thorny path cf constructive statesman
ship to the flower-tilled path of the
popular orator. The nation had no great
need of Chautauquans: it had them in
hundreds. It did need great construc
tive statesmen. It hasn't had but one
or two in twenty-five years, and not five
in fifty.
in our public life. Absolutely incor
ruptible, with convictions as well as
courage, with ideals to which he is faith
ful, he will, if elected President, be a
constant source of inspiration to the
whole country. His aims are high, his
purposes holy. In The Commoner, a
paper he owns and edits, he will not take
the best paying advertisements because
of a moral purpose to publish nothing
that will, directly or indirectly, injure
the morals of his readers. What that
means can be learned at the office of any
high-toned paper. He is out now with a
declaration in favor of publicity of funds
for the campaign and he has put a ban
on any contributions big enough to be
dangerous. I wish we could have a
symposium for this column of what even
his enemies will say of him when he
passes away. Mark what was said of
Cleveland before and after his death.
I put my bays and laurels on live, not
dead, men's brows.
Bryan brings into public life the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was never
one to whitewash over the black acts of
men who could coerce conscience when
it protested against a congressman tak
ing fees as a lawyer. The Golden Rule,
expanded and expounded in the large, is
tho law of his life. It is his guide to all
that he gives to God, and in all that he
gives to man. This may unfit him for
tho Presidency. Perhaps it does.
Washington's ways have seldom or never
been the ways of Jesus Christ. As he
said, with that superb literary sense,
whe« at the conference of governors,
gathered to save us from our sins of
wanton destruction of our resources:
"There is no twilight zone between the
nation and the state, in which exploiting
interests can take refuge from both and
my observation is that most, not all, but
most of the contentions over the line
between nation and state aro traceable
to predatory corporations, which are
trying to shield themselves from de
served punishment, or are endeavoring
to prevent needed restraining legisla
tion." That one sentenco is worth nil
the presidential messages since Mc
Kinley's death. For William Jennings
Bryan there is no twilight zone in which
the editor or congressman can exploit
interests at the expenso of a people's
morality. He reminds one of Papinian,
who went to the block rather than write
a brief in defense of Caracalla, who
murdered Geta, his brother. With
D'Aggasseau or Thomas More he would
have welcomed death in his defense of
honor and the law.
I am not a prophet. It is hard to
predict. Still, if prediction based upon
a belief that is based on years of careful
observation is worth anything. Bryan, if
elected, will make a good and a great
President. Besides, he has back of him
much that is best in our traditions and
history. The platform upon which he
stands is not platitudinous—it is sound
timber, every plank. There will be no
compromise with crime. No Paul
Morton will be whitewashed, no political
criminal or scalawag appointed to office.
No statistics will be tampered with till
they tell a tale such as parties in
exigencies call for. The divisions,
bureaus and departments will not be
made to subserve partisan purposes, as,
alas, they have too often been made to
do under others.
These, then, are the main features of
the man. Whether he wins or loses, he
will go down to his grave a great
American, a splendid specimen of what
was thought of when Lowell wrote the
great ode in which he referred to Lincoln
as the First American. Luckily the
land is no longer dependent upon one
man, however great. It is is to go on
and on. and on, irrespective of its Presi
dents. The fathers, faithful to their
trust, planted the tree of liberty so deep
hat its roots run out into all parts of
the earth. The world's powers will
never be able to pull it up. in all our
past there was no more powerful, no
nobler personality, than the great
Nobraskan, William Jennings Bryan.
