Mr. Bryan shows up much stronger in
the notification than he will in the vote
Which i-» (he better, an advance agent
of prosperity or an advance agent of
prejudice and panic?
If we understand Governor Roosevelt,
he thinks the American army savors of
militarism about as much as a Bryan
dollar dops of honesty.
President McKinley's letter of aeeept
auce may properly be said to be a mes
snge to the American people. Read it in
The Gazette supplement today.
Do not, forget the pertinent question
of Senator Carter of Montana, who
auks "If the tariff is the mother of
trusts, what is the duty on ice?"
Mr. Bryan thinks Indiana will reverse
i'selection results of 1896 and 1898.
Mr. Bryan evidently believes that the
public mind is as changeable as his views.
The announcement that Mr. ;sryan
would dHiver but two speeches a day in
future was made by the democratic na
tional committee without the consent of
Mr. Bryan.
Voting for Bryan on the theory that a
republican senate will prevent him put
ting his heresies into practice is not a
practice that will appeal strongly to the
intelligence of the country.
Mr. Bryan has attempted a mild de
fense of his party in the ratification of
the Paris treaty. His explanation is on
a par with that offered for the failure of
all of his 1896 predictions.
The most remarkable significance in
Mr. Aryan's letter of acceptance to the
democrats, is his silence upon everything
aud every subject in which American
workingmeu as a class have an interest.
Mr. Bryan's desire to give the Filipinos
an independent government and then
protect them from outside interference
without expeuse and without an army
looks a good deal like faith cure applied
to diplomacy.
Already the census man has found
over 528,00(1 manufacturing establish
ments, as against 322,6% in 1890.
This looks as though the trusts were not
crushing out individual enterprise at
8 ich a great rate.
A West Virginia business man, who is
described as being "as close as the bark
on a tree," urges the election of Bryan
because he can lend his money then at
from 8 to 1G per cent aud will ouly have
to pay his labor 50 cents on the dollar.
fictitious fears and Urn forebodings
constitute the fusion stock in trade.
The dt light of a fusionist in piping cam
paign times is to spout calamity as it
has been spouted by democracy for forty
old yeirs. If the people want calamity
they know where to find it.
It will be noticed that James Hamil
ton I,ewiß, the ever hopeful claims King
county for Bryan by 500 to 1000 ma
jority and for the democratic state ticket
by 100 to GOO majority, says the Spo
kane Chronicle. In other words he fig.
uree that John X Rogers will be 400
votes behind Bryan in King county
alone. In the entire state he places
Bryan from 1000 to 3000 votes ahead
of Rogers. It's rather rough on the
man from Puyallup, but perhaps it's a
kindness for Lewis to warn him of the
awful thrashing that's awaiting him
November C.
What Hhkoiu-kk Deserves
Colonel Bryan is the most unworthy
aapirant and dangerous candidate for
the proriduncy of the Uuited States
offered by one uf the dominant
parties within the memory of living
man, avers the Oregonian. We have
had candidates with mistaken views, we
have had men with dangerous policies.
Hut we have never had a man whom
perversion of truth wan so shameless,
whose stock in trade consisted of ap
peals to daea prejudice, whose hopes of
success hiv wholly in ministering to the
basest passions of human nature. It is
past comprehension how any man who
values truth before falsehood and sets
law before anarchy can ally himself with
this most conscienceless of demagogues
and most pernicious of agitators.
We printed the other day a letter that
showed irrefutably that Bryan hm!
taken a message of Abraham Lincoln's,
written to rebuke the ownership of capi
tal in human labor, and so perverted it
as to make it appear to be an indorse
ment of Bryan's senseless ravings
against capital in its relations with free
labor. It was an act palpably and uu
mitigatedly dishonest, that should find,
as it has found, no defenders, and that
should forever debar Bryan from the
confidence and support of men of prin
Why did Bryan urge ratification of
the peace treaty? For the purpose of
putting the republicans in a hole. It is
the act of a cheap politician, it is not
the act of a statesman.
Bryan went about the country in 189G
predicting all manner of catastrophes if
we kept the gold standard. If he knew
better, he is a knave. If he didn't know
better, he is a fool.
He talks silver at the west, anti-im
perialism at the east, anii trusts at the
south. He ib for anything that will get
He wants us to return to the simple
dignity of the fathers, yet he scurries
about the country to receive superfluous
nominations, and spouts his speeches in
to a phonograph.
He denounces autocratic rule, yet he
is himself the most dictatorial of livincr
He holds up Washington and Lincoln
as examples, and yet he has done noth
ing for four years but pursue with un
blushing and unwearied ambition the
democratic nomination for president.
Now, a man may be a cheap politician
and an arrant demagogue and still be
sound at heart. But the baseness of
Bryan's purpose is clearly apparent
from the nature of his appeal.
If a man is contented, Bryan will do
his best to make him discontented. If a
man defies the law with riot, Bryan pats
him on the back. If a man is poor,
Bryan tells him the government is to
blame, Bryan encourages him to call
down imprecations on the rich.
Here is a man who goes about the
country stirring up the poor against the
rich, the hroken against the successful,
the idle against the busy, the laborer
against the employer, the rioter against
the courts, the propertyless against
property, the disorderly against order,
the lawless against law.
Every man that is enraged at the ex
isting order; every man that is envious
of his neighbor's progress; every man
that blames society for his own incom
petence: every man that feels like tak
ing the law into his own hands to re
dress his grievances against capital:
every socialist, communist, anarchist
and rioter; every enemy of progress and
prosperity; every croaking raven of
calamity: every apostle of discontent;
every prophet of despair, recognizes a
friend in Bryan, and recognizes truly,
because his whole appeal, overt or co
vert, is addressed to these basest ele
ments and most dangerous foes of our
Such a man is out of place in the
United States. Such a man is at vari
ance with American ideals of liberty and
law, individual enterprise and responsi
bility. He is the enemy of the doctrine
of fair play, which insures to each the
fruits of his labor. He offers us despair
for hope, discontent for determination,
bitterness for ambition, despondency for
courage. Such a man is dangerous, not
only and not so grievously because he
perverts history, palms off humbug as
philosophy and menaces business and
order, but because he seeks to poison at
its very source the fountain of our na
tional life. He seeks to substitute for a
virile self-reliance, obedience to law and
resolution to press forward, a spirit of
anarchistic rage and bitter complaint
that belongs only in the decadent civiliz
ations of the old world.
The difference between Bryan and nil
his predecessors is not one of degree, but
of kind. We have never had a man be
fare who sought to build himself up on
the ruin* of prosperity, and not only
that, but on the wreck of individual
courage and manly endeavor. The an
swer of our sterling young American
manhood to this base appeal should be
decisive and overwhelming.
The promptness with which Mr. Bryan !
seiz-s upon the coal miners' strike as |
something out of which political capi
tal may be made for himself, as shown
in the report of his speech at Culumbus
on Friday, justifies the assertion of east
-818 journals that the strike has been
fomented by Bryanite emissaries in the
hope that somehow it may favorably
affect his interests. It is noticeable that
nobody has charged any republican with
being engaged in such work. Indeed,
democratic papers have represented
Mark Hanna as having been laboriously
endeavoring to influence the mine own
ers to make concessions to their men, or
nt least to consent to arbitration, with
a view of preventing the strike. The
Springfield Republican credits Mr. Hanna
with such benevolent efforts; and, de
| spite the fact that it supports Bryan,
has the magnanimity to regret that
! those efforts failed. Which attitude will
most comment) itself to American voters
—that of the men who fomen strikes
i with u!l their accompanjing miseries to
laboring men, losses to capital and in
convenience to the people at large, or
' that of statesmen who address them
selves to quieting differences and pro
moting arbitration?
Louis Viereck.a bright German orator
who is to stump Minnesota, the Da
kotas and lowa for the republican ticket,
very aptly characterizes Bryan as a
"modern Vallandighatn."' The principal
difference between Bryan and his pro
totype is that Bryan's championship of
the Filipino rebellion has probably cost
the lives of more American soldiers than
did VaJlandigharn'R treasonable efforts
in the ooilh, in behalf of the southern
confederacy. The biographies of the two
men will show this variance also: That
while Vallandighain was arrested by
order of President Lincoln and sent into
the rebel lines, where he belonged, Bryan
has not been sent to the Filipino camp,
where he belongs.
