JijassoM Omtlni te Bryan. The enthusiastic demonstration which Rock Island eave in honor of W. J. Brvan, of Nebraska, demo cratic candidate for president today. was not the display oi mere curios ity on the part of the public because a prominent man nappenea 10 oe passing tbrougn me city, it was tbe acclaim oi me paunc. it waa a token. It waa the outburst of patriot ism which always Bods expression in the heart of the American citizen wbea one of bis number, who through aucb worth as be possess;. cornea before bim. The people of this nation glory in tbelr treat men aa they do in their great institutions and great principles, and when ooe of their number riaea as Mr. Bryan baa through the stud v and expression of these principles of government blch are dear to hia heart and born of conviction, hia fellow men are proud to do him honor. Thk I'eoria Herald contends that there ia a distinction between a bolt er and a Hopper in these times of po litical variation. Thckk la a tremendous amount of anilety among republicans about Bryan's trip east. They seem to have a mental dread of He effect. and well they may. Thb editor of the journal of the Knights of Labor is right in saying mat 'Bryan ia the man of the hour. It would also be correct to say that Bryan ia the man of next November. Tub prevailing fashion at this sea son of the year is aoft shirts and col lars. If the shirts and collars were not soft to begin with they will soon be made to without the connivance of their wearer or the lanndryman Midi amart republican papers have been calling Brvan a farmer aince be received the indorsement of the populist national convention The chief appropriatness of the ap plication of the term, however, is found In the fact that be is cultivat ing an unprecedented crop of roles to harvest this fall. thk new I or it mercury says Judging from tbe number of appli rationa already made for admission tickets to Madison Square Garden to bear William J. Bryan, new Xork must contain about two hundred thousand anarchists.' All New York ia crazy to bear tbe 'Boy Ora tor oi tbe riatte. ' WUbther Joan u. Tanner s gang Is on good terms with tbe national republican managers, aa the former now claim, or not. it ia a fact that if tbe preconvention fight in this state was to be repeated both the McKln ley and the Tanner factions would fight harder than ever for tbe mas tery. -I'eoria Journal. Tbe Maa of Ika Boar. The Journal of the Knights of La bor published in New York, and ed ited by Henry B. Martin, of Minneap olis, in a leading editorial in its is sue ot Aug. 4. says: We have had seven national con ventions this vear ot grace, ro far. and are threatened with another. The prohibitionists have split their forces, and are presenting the claims of two different individuals to their extremely limited clientle. The re publicans minus le ler, lowne, uu bois. Cannon. Hartnian and other prominent western silver leaders are now engaged in trving to luauci nir. Hannainto the White House. The socialists have a couple of gentle. men named Matchett and Maguire entered for the race. The demo crats have put forward a giatt of the west, with an eastern partner, for our suffrages. Tbe sil ver men simply indorsed this action of the democracy, and the people's party, the last in the held, alter four days of straggle and discussion. finally named upon meir own plat form, the same William Jennings Bryan already selected by the demo crats and silver men Brvan is the man of the hour. brought forth by the necessities of the occasion. Bryan's whole course aa a politician has been clean, con sistent, forcible and manly. There are bo dubious utterances of his to explain away. His position upon the chief issues has been long defi nitely established, and in their de fense he had already won his spurs before bis name was dreamed of in connection with the presidency. All tbe powers oi wealth and the influence it brings are already at work to compass his defeat. Every legal rouoer in me united states, re gardless of his former politics; every man whose interest lies in the con tinued subjugation of the wage earn er and farmer; every sheet which has prospered and grown upon the anbsides to be obtaiued for treachery all this tremendous force is already moving ta prevent the com ing triumph oi the plain people. ihe record oi all conventions has been broken. The people themselves the plain, everyday overalls jump ers and jeana people have seen tbe crisis; the crisis has drawn forth the man. and the idea of November will demonstrate that tbe smooth tongued, swallow-tailed, hanghty politician doea not possess and can't buy the vote necessary to prevent tbe people from entering into their own."

Tub republicans who are alluding to Brvan a trip east as a "stumping tour" should remember that be has no fund at hia back out of which to pay 115,000 and $35,000 each to campaign speakers, but that with him it ia a struggle to uphold prin ciples to which be la devoted. Mr. Uryan's eontributioo tt this cam paign is to be brains and eloquence. A siimiricAST feature ot tbe pres ent political aitnation in this country Is the total absence of com men t on It on the part of our Kuropean oities. The oracles of the Kuropeaa press. who la all previous Campaigns, have nnaeriaiea 10 ten meir reaaers an about It and to explain why things were just as they were, ate now i lent, aad no wonder.

Consistency may bo a jewel, nut mnrston !evi dentlv not eonsistent and hence is not a jeweler, lie is a tinker. There is going the rounds of the republican press a qaotatioa from a speech discussing "circulating me diom" made by Daniel Webster i 1815. Tat wbea democratic paper quota from the free silver speeches nf republicans given 70 yrsrs after Webster's speech, the point is made that eonditlons ia money affairs have changed since that time, and it Isn't fair to hold a maa aow to what fcesald 10 or 15 years ago.

Take a gold piece, for instance put it in your pock et at night and wbatdoyou find in the morniog. Providing you don't get robbed yon tiod tbe same piece there Its value is not enhanced any is it? Why, certainly not. But you take a silver certificate, and put that in your pocket at night and what do you find in the morning providing yon don't get robbed? Why. yoa lind it in creases, ot course.
