F.dlson says: "Why, after years of watch ing the process of nature, I can no more doubt the existence of an In telligence that is running things than I do the existence of myself. Tuke, for example, the substance water that forms the crystal known as Ice. Now, there are hundreds of combinations that form crystals and every one of them save that of ice best voters in the country-voters Hnks in water. Ice, I say, doesn't who cast their votes for Hryan be- And it Is rather lucky for us mor caiise of his splendid personality tals, for if it had done ho wd would his moral worth and his stand for ; all be dead. Why? Simply because principle. Mr. Itryan gained ten 1 credentials entitling him to express an opinion on how it happened. Ills pinion in worth a good deal more than the li it cost him for a chance to formulate It. This contributor disposes of the al legation that Mr. Bryan is person ally chargeable with the defeat, he cause of distrust of him, in this wise: "No doubt thousands voted for Mr. Tuft because of the fear of Hryanlsm. Hut they are few In comparison this vote was over shadowed by the votes of thous andshundreds of thousands of tlie Intelligence h other planets." governing this and OWEN A. SMITH, M. D..

And then lie proceeds to place his linger on the cause of Mr. Bryan's defeat. That defeat was due, not to the fear of Hryan, but to fear of the enemies of Hryan. It is stated this way by the contributor: "Jt was not Hryan or ltryanisin that the decisive vote feared. It was the fear of the oncmicit of Hryanlsm the fear of the trusts tlie fear of tho corrupt combinations; of capital, of tlie thousand and one different Interests that are enjoying the favors of a high protective tariff and the special privilege legislation as manufactured by the corporation favoring elements of the republican party. Tho fear of the power of these interests would have defeated any man the opposition could have brought out." Aiiiilyxlng a bit further, the writer divides the vote that elected Mr. Taft into three elements. There was the Hellish vote. It represented I the power of the cheap politicians and the favor-grabbing corporations. It was a vote mil for patriotism or! principle, but for self-interest. Next j there was the "narrow-minded vote," a term which the writer applies to the standpatters, the partisans who j vote their ticket straight and prefer their tarllf high, comprising perhaps j the bulk of the rank and file of the I Republican party. Finally there was the "timid vote," and of thiy class! the contributor writes as rollows: j "They are all clean, coiisclenl lolls j men men who want to vote right ' men who are clear-headed enough j to kcc t h jugs in their right light , but j who for fear of tlie power of tliel high protective tariff Interests feel that they dare not oppose them the laboring man, the merchant, the man who has his home half paid for, the man whose exceptional ability allows him to be fairly prosperous, regardless of the monopolistic op pression, the farmer, upon whose products the greed of Illegally or garl.eil capital has not as yet fast ened its hold, would alt have liked to vote for principles if tlieyilared they as yet haven't the courage. Will they get it before Jt is too late?" This Is dangerously near the point. If It be true that Hryan was de feated becauso timid people, feared the vengeance of the trusts, what does it mean? If it be truo that there wore thou sands who cheered him, loved lilin, hung upon his words, believed In him and who wont with heavy hearts to tho ballot box to cast their votes against him becauso they woro afraid "the system" would punish the country if Taft were not elected what then?
