tributed sheets alleging that Hanna's
seat in the senate had beeil purchased.
Seven hundred people composed the au
Tleiice, most of whom were detuocr: ts.
The front row was occupied by schorl
boys wearing large Bryan badges. Ilanna
said he considered it an honor to have an
audience like this come out so early to
see a fellow advertised as having honors.

most pretentious meeting this morning

GOVERNOR GEER LAST NIGHT
Oregaa'i Popular Qoveraor Made, a Telling
Speech Last Night—Republican Facta va
Democratic Flctiou.
Counter attractions drew largely Iront
the audience that greeted Governor Geer
last night, but they took nothing from
the enthusiasm given to his excellent
exposition of the issues of the campaign.
Governor Geer addressed hitnself to the
practical side of the issues of the cam
paign, making a comparison between re
punlican promises redeemed ami demo
cratic predictions that failed. Democratic
theories failed; democratic predictions
had failed, but republican prosperity is
an accomplished fact. The speaker quo
ted from Buchanan to emphasize the
point that calamity was a democratic pol
icy from heredity. He said the demo
crats were always looking on the dark
side and found it principally in their own
administrations. The democrats are al
ways looking for something to scare at.
In 1896 it was the crime of 1873 that
made prices low; now it was the trust oc
topus that made prices high. The speaker
asked the farmer to make his own com
parisons and not listen to the tales of the
spell binder. It is true that the McKin
ley calf is worth more than the Cleve
land cow and the McKinley lamb worth
more than the Cleveland sheep. These
are undeniable facts and in this cam
paign facts outweigh theories. Militar
ism was a bogy exploded when Roosevelt
showed that we liad only 85-100 of a sold
ier for every 36 square miles Bryan
had deliberately manufactured the issue
of imperialism. Six months liefoie the
cainpaigu opened the leading democratic
dailies of the United States were for
holding the Philippines. The San Fran
cisco Examiner said: "Nail tlie flag to
the mast." Bryau favored the treaty and
worked for it to get up a new paramount
issue. Such an action coupled with his
indiscriminate attack upon capital and
his insincerity caused the speaker to place
Bryan on the level of an absolute dema
gogue.
Governor Geer is an attractive speaker,
not of the spell hinder variety, hut with
hard, practical argument full of meat
and happily illustrated by tlie droll wit
ticisms that make points stick.
