Says Bryan Is Worth About $200,000.
In the September American Magir.ine
there is an article containing a great
deal of "inside information about the
Chicago and Baltimore conventions. One
of the interesting points brought out is
the relation that existed between Bryan
and the rich and powerful New York
delegates. To his face they were friend
ly, but behind his back they reviled him.
Especial attention was paid to the al
leged great fortune that Bryan lurs
made. The article goes on:
"It was a scandal and must be de
nounced. Iduas of the extent of the
scandal varied with the various notions
of what constitutes fortune. South
ern bankers and lawyers put it at about
a million. Their more prosperous breth
ren from the Nprth could not call a
million scandalous and they estimated
the Bryan pile at five millions.
"'And every cent of it made out of
the Democratic party. He has capital
ized the notoriety we have given him.'
If rumors of these conferences reached
Mr, Bryan they must have made him
pensive, for he is said to entertain a
respect for the dignity of a dollar th.it
would meet the approval of Mr. Rocke
feller, It never occurred to these con
spirators that to save even a miser
able million dollars from the proceeds of
lecturing and writing would be impos
sible. We know little about Mr. Bryan's
stock lecture except that it is said to
appeal to the kind of intelligence that
adored the late Ian MacLaren. No
doubt be is well paid for his platform
appearances. 2o doubt lie is over-puil
for his writings. We admire Mr. Bryan
as a public character and as a first
class fighting man but we feel bound
to say that if we were advising any
young man who wislied to cultivate an
English stylo, we should most certainly
advise him to give no part of his days
or his nights to the volumes of Bryan.
The truth is that Mr. Bryan by very
hard work with pen and open face, 1-y
saving and luckily Investing has gath
ered together about $200,000. The writ
er personally regards this as a scan
dalous fortune, but he cannot under
stand why it should be so regarded by
Mr. T. F, Ryan."

The. Artist'i Need. .
"Murder in Any Degree" is the title
of a story by Owen Johnson, author of
"Stover at Yale" in the August Cen
tury, in which the leading character of
tha story, a genius who fails to pro
duce, nays:
"Do you know what is the great es
sential to the artist to whoever
creates? The sense of privacy, the pow
er to isolate his own genius from every
thing in the world, to be absolutely con
centrated. To create we must be alone,
have strange, unuttered thoughts, just
as in the realms of tne aoul every hu
mnn being must have moments of com
plete isolation thoughts, rfvcneH,
moods, that cannot be shared with even
those we lovo best. You don't under
stand that."
"Yes, I do."
"At the bottom we human being
come and depart absolutely alone.
Friendship, love, all that we instinctive
ly seek to rid ourselves of, this awful
solitude of the soul, avail nothing. Well,
what others shrink from, the artist roust
