RIGHT OF CONTRACT.
to Be Abridged by Bryan and His Popo
The Cordage Trade Journal ol Oc
tober 1 discusses a part of the Chicago
platform which has not thus far re
ceived the attention wnicn it menti
that part which proposes to take away
the right of private contract. The Jour
nal says that "no industry of any size
can exist without the use of contracts.
agreements for the purchase, sale, de
livery of and payment for goods. It Is
hardly necessary to point out whatthia
means in the cordage business.
It then explains how rope manufac
turers make contracts with brokers,
and brokers with foreign growers of
manilla, or sisal, for their raw mate
rials. Having made these contracts,
they are in a position to make contracts
with large jobbers and rope dealers.
Continuing, the Journal says:
"Contracts are necessary to the suc
cessful transaction of business upon
any scale above that of the very small
retail trade, where goods and money
pass between buyer and seller simulta
neously. Mr. Bryan would, if presi
dent, give his approval to laws which
would prohibit business men from
specifying what they shall sell goods
for or what they shall pay for goods,
thus seriously restricting the right of
contract, nis first nomination in Chi
cago was based upon his acceptance of
a platform which contained the follow
" 'We demand that the standard silver
dollar shall be a full legal -tender, equally
good with gold, for all debts, public and
private, and we favor such legislation as
will prevent for the future the demoneti
zation of any kind of legal tender money
by private contract'
His populistic nomination in St.
Louis carried with it this plank: '
" 'We demand such legislation as will
prevent the demonetization of the lawful
money of the United States by private
"Possibly the United States supreme
court will uphold such legislation it
sustained the validity of the legal ten
der act and what? Mr. Bryan does
not tell the people whom he addresses
tri-daily. When he gets near the sub
ject it is only to say something like
" 'When anyone tries to give you an ob
ject lesson with a Mexican dollar, tell him
that the Mexicirh dollar is not legal tender
in this country and that our silver dollar is,
and under free coinage will continue to be,
and no one will be allowed to contract
against It.' W. J. Bryan in Newark, Sep
"This not only shows the purpose of
the man, but also gives an intelligent
man a very clear conception of Mr.
Bryan's skill as a logician. If he knew
anything at all about commerce the
lifeblood of which he so glibly talks of
interfering with he would know that
the execution of his pkn would cause
an instant creation of commercial ac
tivity, which would be followed by a
resumption upon a restricted and an-
tiqua basis. Methods which the com
mercial world ditftirdcd generations
ago would have to l:e brought into use
for carrying cn business un!?r the con
