As free silver has made liryan a rich
man, he enn't for the life of him see why
it f-hould not make the other fellow rich.
William ,1. Bryan has exchanged bis
lecture called "What I Know About
Wheat ' for a new one entitled "What I
Know About the Republic."
Bryan is opposed to a front porch
campaign, as the collections made from
the rear end of a Pullman are always
much better than those made at lawn
The little boy whose representations
concerning the jam clotset have been dis
credited uaturally wants to paramount
some other question. That is little
Willie Bryan.
Of the several nominees for the presi
dency, Mr. Bryan is far the wealthiest,
and he made all his money during the
prosperous times brought about by the
McKinley administration.
The Hon. James Hamilton Lewis has
been doing a little "paramounting" on
his own account, and announces that he
balds the administration responsible for
the attitude of the Boxers.
The democratic party never pointed
with pride to any business measure that
it ever enacted. The business of democ
racy is not to do, but to always "view
with alarm" that which has been done.
Those who vote for Bryan vote to
abandon a condition more prosperous
than any ever before eDJoyed by any na
tion, for the purpose of trying a finan
cial experiment condemned by all na
Mr. Bryan's recent silence is accounted
for by the fact that he was spending a
good deal of time trying to decide
whether to commence his speeches with
"My comrades of the tented field" or
"My fellow-farmers."
Jerry Simpson predicts that the nomi
nation of Mr. Stevenson will give Kan
sas to the republicans. It looks as if
Adlai was nominated in order to have a
good natured person upon whom to
blame the unpleasant happenings.
It is queer that in these days so
fraught with danger to the farmer, ac
cording to Mr. Bryan's mouth, that
this gentleman should tempt everlasting
ruin and contrary his own advice by
purchase of a farm, even though that
farm is more photographed than worked.
In one breath the democratic orator
will assure his bearers that McKinley
has no backbone, that he is a creature
controlled by those around him, and
with the ntxt breath will.accuse him of
shaking the republic to pieces in order
to erfct a throne on the ruins thereof,
aU of which requires some backbone.
The democratic candidate for the
p-esidency has persuaded the populists
democrats and silver republicans to pool
their interests. In short, he has formed
a political trvist for the express purpose
of destroying competition, yet stands
oa a platform which declares that such
methods are destructive to personal
liberty and dangerous to national life.
The republican party had demon
strated that self-government is not only
possible, but honorable and full of glory.
The leaders today take counsel of the
wisdom of the past. They are the dis
tributors not the hoarders of liberty.
They gave freedom to Cuba and Porto
Rico and will give that freedom to the
Philippines which will best protect indi
vidual rights and guarantee the respect
of other powers. This is the imperial
ism of true freedom, the royalty of jus
tice, and will soon be recognized as the
crowning glory of national achievment.
Bryan would gire absolute independ
ence to the rhilippir.es. This of course
means that the flag shall be furled and
the army recalled. Will he explain how
this can be done? Is there any constitu
tional provision for alienating American
territory? If there is one constitutional
argument against acquiring territory
there are a dozen against abandoning
territory. The rebellion settled that
question cnce for all. As well talk
übout abandoning Texas, Alaska, Ken
tucky or Ohio. Methods of administra
tion are legitimate questions for party
differences, but to deny a fact solemnized
by treaty and ratified by congress is to
betray unpardonable ignorance of the
powers and functions of government.
The "Full Dinner Pail" is an argument
for the farmer as well as for the city la
borer. Who supplies what is put in the
pail? The farmer. If the city laborer
has bin wages cut in two by free nlver,
and is put out of a job by the cloning of
the mills, the farmer suffers equally; for
the farmer may >;ive away but he can
not sell, the products of his farm which
the city laborer cannot afford to buy.
It is because of the "full dinner pail"'
that the farmer is getting so much bet
ter prices for what he sells than he could
get before the election of MeKinley.
The Kecord and the Man.
No more i ffective campaign document
can bo sent out by the republican com
mittee than the brief and informal
speech of President McKinlej in response
to a notification of hi« Domination for
the presidency, says the Seattle I'ont-
Intelligencer. The first citizen of the re
public speaks not to the committee
charged with this duty by the conven
tion, but to a whole people whom he
has loved and served. It is a noble
statement of the case; quiet, dignified,
earnest, yet replete with the eloquence
of facts and that nobler eloquence in
which manly sincerity clothes itself with
appropriate words. No true American
can read this speech without a new glow
of pride for his country and n warming
of the heart toward its leader.
Most strikingly than by any extended
review of the last four years does Presi
dent McKinley suggest the changes that
they have wrought when he quotes from
hie speech of acceptance in 1896. How
splendidly have the assurances then
given been made good! The gold stan
dard hae been maintained, money made
plentiful aud cheap, and the interest
bearing obligations of the nation re
funded at the lowest rate of interest
known to the world. Industry has been
restored. Prosperity has responded to
our wooing. A great war has been
waged successfully for humanity. And
with that has come an army of new,
perplexing duties, toward whose right
performance we press manfully. So
great is the record that but to speak of
it inspires greatness. We quote some of
the happy and forcible expressions from
this address that will sink deep into the
hearts and minds of the American
We have lower interest and higher
wages, more money aud fewer mort
We have passed from a bond-issuing
to a bond-paying nation; from a nation
of borrowers to a nation of lender*;
from a deficiency in revenue to a surplus;
from fear to confidence; from enforced
idleness to profitable employment.
We have prosper yiat home and pre
tige abroad.
The open door in China gives to us
fair and equal competition in the vast
trade of the Orient. Some things have
happened there which were not promised
nor even foreseen, and our purposes in
relation to them must not be left in
There must be no scuttle policy. We
will fulfill in the Philippines "the obliga
tions imposed by the triumph of our
arms and by the treaty of peace; by
fnternational law, by the nation's Bense
of honor, and, more than all, by the
rights, interests and condition of the
Philippine people themselves.
No outside interference blocks the way
to peace and a stable government. The
obstructionists are here and not else
We reassert the early principle of the
republican party, sustained by unbroken
judicial precedents, that the representa
♦iuee of the people, in congress assem
bled, have full legislative power over
territory belonging to the United States,
subject to the fundamental safeguards
of liberty, justice and personal rights.
This doctrine, fa'ist proclaimed in the
cause of freedom, will never be used as a
weapon for oppression.
The republican party was dedicated to
freedom forty-four years ago, it has been
the [party of liberty and emancipation
from that hour. It broke the shackles
of four million slaves and made them
free, and to the party of Lincoln has
come another supreme opportunity
which it has bravely met in the libera
tion of ten million of the human family
from the yoke of imperiolism.
There are words and phrases here that
will set all the echoes ringing for the com
ing campaign. But, far better than that,
they will thrill with pride and with re
sponsive determination the hearts of
millions of American citizens. No vacil
lation here, no assumption of authority
outside of the constitution and the laws,
no resolve for anything but the welfare
of the American people aDd the glorify
ing of the American name by the increase
of its power and the extension of the
liberties which are at once its privilege
and its boast. A great record, a great
speech, a great man! Let those who
can match them throw down the gaunt
let to the party that claims them for its
own with love and pride.
False Prophet Bryan.
If the prophecies and predictions made
by Mr. Bryan in 189G, which so fright
ened many iuto his support, had proven
to be true, the gold standard, which has
been in operation ever since he uttered
them, would have produced the follow
ing direful results:
It would hare increased tbs purchasing
power of tfie gold dollar—(Macngon Square
Garden speech.)
It would have been as certain to make
prices fall as a stone is to fall when it is
thrown into the air.—(Newton, lowa, speech )
It would have increased the debts of the
people and lessened their ability to pay them.
—(Baltimore speech.)
It would have made times harder and
harder.—(Same speech,)
It would haye starved everybody except
the money changers and the money-owners.—
(New Ha\en, Conn , gpeech.)
It would have transferred the bread which
one man earns to another man who had not
earned it.—(Hartford, Conn., speech.)
It would have made the rich richer and the
poor poorer.—(Newark, Ohio, speech.)
It would have decreased the number who
are happy and increased the number who are
in di.-tress, —(Same speech )
It would have destroyed the hope of the
toiling idmm, —(Minneapolis, Minn,, speech )
It wouM have destroyed the opportunity to
work —(Same speech.)
It would have increased the number of idle
men.- (Same speech )
It would have decreased the volume of
standard money. —(Same speech )
It would have encmraged the hoarding if
money. -(Hornesville, N. V., speech )
It would have made it more and more diffi
cult for the farmer to live. —(Madison Square
Garden speech )
It would have injured the wage-earner.—
(Same speech )
It wmrd have made employment less cer
tain.—(Same speech )
It would have discouraged enterprise.—
(Same speech.)
It would have paraljztd industry.--(Same

It would have lessened the ability of sav
i:iL-s banks to collect their assets. —(Same
It would have increased the danger of de
positors losing their deposits in savings banks.
- (Madiaoo Square Garden speech )
It would have compelled depositors in sav
ings banks to withdraw their deposits to pay
living expenses.— (Same speech.)
It would have lessened the salaries of those
eDgaged in business occupations and would
have lessened the permanency of Buch salaries.
—(Same speech.)
It would have injured those who have per
manent investments in railroad stocks ana
other like enterprises.—(Same speech.)
It would have injured or destroyed the
manufacturers of agricultural implements,
wagons and buggies.—(Springfield, Ohio, and
Flint, Mich., speeches )
It would have lessened the ability of the
masses to buy goods and thereby would have
lessened the number of commercial traveling
men.—(lndianapolis speech to traveling men )
It would have made it impossible for hus
bands and wives to pay off the mortgages on
their homes.—(Minneapolis, Minn., speech to
It would have made it necessary to advocate
the closing up of our public schools. —(Mon-
mouth, 111., speech.)
It would have made it more profitable to
loan n.oney or to hoard it than to invest it in
enterprise or property. —(Syracuse, N. V.,
It would have made dearer money, cheaper
property, harder times, more people out of
work, more people destitute, more people
desperate, more crime.— (Minneapolis speech
to ladies.)
It would have lowered the standard of
civilization in this country.—(Madison Square
Garden speech.)
It would have been wiiting the future in
blood, crushed out by gold.—Erie, Perm.,
All thene prophecies and predictions
about the evils that would befall us if
the gold standard should be adopted
have uterly failed.
Mr. P.ryan said in a speech delivered
at Lincoln, Nebraska, July 7, 1900:
The fight this year will be to carry out the
sentiment of that son? we have so often re
peated, "My Country 'tis of Thee." If we
lose, our children and our children's children
will not succeed to the spirit of that song, and
celebrations of the Fourth of July will pass
away, for the spirit of empire. will be upon up.
Pass the salt, please.
A review of the past platforms of the
democratic party will reveal the fact
that the party is short on promises ful
filled and long on false prophecies. It
declared that the war was a failure; it
wasn't. It declared that tree trade
would bring prosperity; it didn't. It
said that the gold standard would cause
a panic; it didn't. It promised to re
duce taxation; it didn't. It promised
to benefit the laboring man; it didn't.
Having failed in all its promises, it now
cornea up with a netv stock declared to
be better than the old and a*ks for in
It will be remembered that Senator
Tillman, he of the pitchfork, helped to
write the Kansas City platform which
expresses such tender regard for the
rights, liberties and independence of the
brown man. But on the floor of the
senate of the I'nited States this same
senator, while speaking of the black
men, said with pride: "We stuffed ballot
boxes, we shot them; we are not
ashamed of it." The senator must be
an expert on the relation existing be
tween shades of color and the degree of
liberty that democracy should j ortion
out to each.

health without subjecting their weak nerves to
the shock of an examination. I was all run
down in health; could not work but a short time
without resting. Was very nervous and had a
very poor appetite. / decided to write to Dr.
Pierce and state my case, and am thankful that I
did, for I received^a favorable reply. I took six
bottles of 'Favorite Prescription,' one of 'Gold

and I can now work as well as I could before I
was taken sick. I think Dr. Pierces medicine
the best ia the world for sick and nervous
