Silver Bryan Could Win Without New
York, IlllnoU and Indiana.
From the New York Journal.
It baa been Bald that the political flguren
may as well give up their calculations this
year, as the election Is one in which the
Issues are novel, party lines broken and
new deals made In the game of politics.
While this Is in a measure true the con
clusion reached Is Incorrect Except in a
few states the Democracy is as powerful as
ever, and in some parts of the country,
whore it has formerly for years had barely
a standing, its strength has greatly In
creased. The marked enthusiasm of the
large majority of the Democratic national
convention means something. It indicates
a Democratic revival In the west and south.
The Populist power Is shown by the elec
tions of 1809 and 1894. Its union on the
Democratic candidate is Just so much solid
gain, If the bolting Democrats should put
a third candidate into the field, Its oulycf.
feet would be to draw to the ballot box the
few Democrats who, dissatisfied with the
action at Chicago, but not prepared to
wallow protection, plutocracy and pater
nalism In MoKlnley, might otherwise re
main away from the polls.
If no third candidate should be in the
Held, some disaffected Democrats might
vote for McKlnley, but quite as many
would vote with their party rather than
lose their votes. Hence there is good
ground now for an Intelligent judgment on
the outlook, based on former votes and the
ascertained strength of parties.
The questions that present themselves
In considering the chances of success are:
L Have the Populists lost or gained
strength linoe the election of 1893f
& Will the Populist support of the Dem
ocratic candidate for president, William J.
Bryan, be general?
8. Will the defection from the Demo
cratic party, caused by the action of the
Chicago convention, be great enough to
offset the increase of strength gained from
the Populist voter
! 1. An the Fopnllst growing-?
1 The total popular vote in 1893 was as
Dem 00 ratio.. 5,556,018
Republican 6,176,106
Populist 1.041,038
The Democratic and Populist vote com
bined was 6,607,940, or 1,421,888 in excess
of the Republican vote.
The total Populist vote In 1894 was
1,888,453, or 823,424 larger than in 1893.
In view of the large Populist vote, it is
significant that the Democratic vote in
1892 showed an increase of 18,685 over the
vote of 1888, while the Republican vote de
creased 364,108 from the vote at the elec
tion of four years previous.
In the states whloh will be the battle
ground of the election the increase or de
crease of the Populist vote in 1894, as com
pared with 1892, is as follows;

Washington 19,165 25.140
West Virginia... 4,166 Fusion
Wisconsin 9,900 26,604
Wyoming 7,722 2,176
These figures do not correctly show in
all oases the actual Populistio increase or
decrease. In Colorado, for Instance, the
Populist vote of 1803 shows the fusion
Democratic and Populist vote. In 1894
(the congressional election) the Democrats
had no candidate and divided their votes
between the Republicans and Populists. In
Idaho the Democratic and Populist votes
were bunched together in 1893 and sepa
rated in 1894. The Kansas vote of 1893
shows the combined Democratic and Popu
list vote, while in 1895 they were divided.
In Nebraska in 1893 there was a bitter
aght among the Democrats over the ques
onof fusion on the Populist electoral
ticket, the local Democratic leaders fearing
they might lose their power in their or
ganization if fusion prevailed. The com
bination was defeated, but the Democratic
vote, whloh had been 80,552 in 1888 and
71.881 In 1890, dwindled down to 24,943.
In 1894, on a union with the Populists on
governor, It was 97,815, and 6,985 votes
were cast for a silver Democratic candidate.
The Democratic Populist governor carried
the state.
In North Dakota the Democratic and
Populist votes were counted together as
Populists in 1892 and separately in 1894.
In Nevada in 1894 the vote of 5,523 was
east for Governor Jones, the silver oandi
data Seven hundred and eleven votes
were cast for a Populist.
In arriving at the total Populist vote of
1,863,462, in 1894, some Democratic votes
an therefore included in cases where Dem
ocrats supported Populist candidates. But
this is offset by the fact that in North Caro
lina, where the Republicans fused with
the Populists in electing a chief justice of
the supreme court, and in other states
where the Republicans combined with the
Populists in electing judges and congress
men the votes were counted as Republican
and no enumeration was made of the Pop
ulist votes. Hence the total of 1,868,453 is
as nearly accurate as possible,
The extent and enthusiasm of the last
Bt Louis convention, as well as the proof
given by these figures, show that the Popu-
llct strength has not "diminished since its
large vote ai 18U3.
f. Will the Populist sopport
of Bryan
be fonerelT
It is as ridiculous to suppose that the
Populists will not support Uryan as it was
to imagine that the Chicago Democratic
convention would not avail itself of its
ample majority to make good its two-thirds
vote, to lay down a platform in accordance
with its own views and to select its own
standard bearer, or as it was to predict thot
the St. Louis Populist convention would
throw awoy its chances of success and
nominate a candidate who could not be
elected In preference to a candidate with a
good prospect of success. ,
From the first the Populist convention
was iu favor of Bryan's nomination, but
its members desired to act In a manner
that would preservetbeir own organization
Intact and not merge It in the Democratic
organization. The Texans were more ear
nest than others on this point, because of
their great strength In their state and the
much larger strength of the Democracy.
But with them, as with all, the talk of a
middle of the rood candidate for the presi
dency was as nonsensical as the talk of a
"side ditch" bolt from the action of the
convention is now.
The nomination of an independent Pop
nlist candidate for vice president accom
plishes all the so called middle of the road
delegates wanted. It preserves the identity
of the party, and Instead of injuriously af
fecting the president's vote will serve to
Increase it
The last vote in Texas for governor was,
In round numbers: Democratic, 843,000;
Populist, 160,000, and Republican, 65,000.
A Populist bolt in Texas would mean the
cutting down of the Populist vote 80 per
cent and the consequent increase of the
Democratic vote. . .
With the Democratic vote in the west
strengthened and increased by free sliver a
straight Populist nominee for president
would only lose the Populists the four
states they carried with Democratic help
In 1892 Colorado, Idaho, Kansas and Ne
S. Will the defection of the gold Dem-
defeat Bryan?
In considering the amount of danger to
the Chicago ticket from the disaffection of
the gold Democrats, It is important to re
member that such disaffection is serious in
only a limited number of states and Is
scarcely of any account whatever in the
Of the New England and middle states
Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Mas
sachusetts and Pennsylvania elected the
Republican electoral tickets in 1893 and
may be conceded to the Republicans now.
Any gold Democracy movement in those
states is Immaterial If half the Democrats
should repudiate the Chicago candidates,
they could only swell the Republican ma
jorities. Connecticut, New York and New
Jersey are, on the other hand, very im
portant Democratic states. With Dela
ware, Maryland and West Virginia, their
electoral votes were east for Cleveland in
It is claimed that the gold Democrats
Will turn over Connecticut, New Jersey
and New York to the McKlnley Repub
licans in this election.
In the section most affected by the silver
and Populist movements through the
mining and agricultural interests, five
states ran no Democratic electoral tickets
in 1892 Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, North
Dakota and Wyoming. In Nevada, al
though a Democratic electoral ticket was
In the field, the Democrats generally voted
with the Populists. Colorado, Idaho,
Kansas and Nevada were in consequence
carried by the Populists by pluralities in
Colorado of 14,964, in Idaho of 1,921, in
Kansas of 5,874 and in Nevada of 4,453.
In North Dakota the Populists obtained
181 plurality in the state, but the three
electoral votes went one to eaoh candi
date. In Wyoming the Republicans se
cured 782 plurality.
In the other western and Pacific Btates
a combination of the Democratic and Pop
ulist votes in 1893 would have made these
changes in the results:
California, carried by the Democrats by
144 plurality, would have given 25,496
plurality over the Republicans.
Illinois, carried by the Democrats by
26,993 plurality, would have given them a
plurality of 49,200. v
Indiana's Democratic plurality of 7,125
would have been Increased to 29,333.
Iowa's Republican plurality of 22,905
would have been reduced to 2,870.
Michigan's Republican plurality of 20,
413 would have dwindled to 520.
Minnesota's Republican plurality of 21,
903 would have been changed to a plurality
of 7,410 against the Republicans.
Montana, instead of giving 1,270 plural
ity for the Republicans, would have given
a plurality of 6,064 for the Democrats.
Nebraska's Republican plurality of 4,093
over the Populists would have given a
plurality of 20,850 against the Republican
ticket '..
Ohio would have reversed the Repub
lican plurality of 1,072 to a plurality of
18,778 for the other side.
Oregon, which gave a mixed vote, show
ing a small plurality for the Republicans,
would havo given a plurality of 6,206
against Harrison.
South Dakota's plurality of 8,344 for the
Republicans would have changed to 737
against them. L
Washington's Republican plurality of
6,658 would have been wiped out and a
Democratic and Populist plurality of 12,
607 would have turned the state to the
other side.
West Virginia's Democratic plurality of
4,174 would have been increased to 8,340.
Wisconsin's Democratic plurality Of 6, 544
would have swelled to 16,453.
Wyoming, which gave Harrison 732
plurality, would have doled out to him
only 202. '

Where Will the Unplaced States Oof
Of the unplaced states, where ought
California to go!1 In 1892 its electoral vote
was given to Cleveland by 144 plurality.
The combined Democratic and Populist
vote was 25,406 over the Republicans. In
1894 the Democratic governor was elected
by 1,206 plurality anl the Democratic and
Populist votes combined had a plurality of
62,510 over the Republicans. It is a sig
nificant fact that much dissatisfaction pre
vailed, and while the Democratic governor
was elocted the other state officers went to
the Republicans.
Delaware has gone Democratic seven
times since 1876 and Republican once.
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Michigan
have In them some Democratic disaffection.
Judgment, based on ascertained facts,
would be justified in placing Illinois, In
diana and Wisconsin In the Bryan column.
.There is certainly good ground fof believ
ing they will maintain their combined
Democratic and Populist pluralities under
the Impetus of union and the promise of
. The rest of the unplaced states are on
the crest of the great western tidal wave of
the free silver movement and are believed
to be prepared to sweep away all opposition
to Bryan. Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska,
North and South Dakota, Oregon, Wash
ington and West Virginia are all counted
on to give the Chicago candidate their elec
toral votes.
Thoy are placed In the Democratic col
umn for good and convincing reasons.
Minnesota, because the Dumocratlo and
Populist vote of 1892, with both those
parties inharmonious and dissatisfied, was
7,410 larger than the Republican vote.
Montana, because without the prestige
of union and free silver coinage the Dem
ocratic and Populist vote combined was
6,064 larger than the Republican vote in
1892 for president, 2,489 larger in the con
gressional election of 1894 and 7,257 larger
in the last election for governor.
Nebraska, because the combined vote
was 20,850 larger than the Republican
vote in 1892, 10,187 larger in 1894 for gov
ernor and 19,614 larger last year on su
preme court judge.
North Dakota, because fusion without
the prestige of a solid union defeated tho
Republicans for governor iu 1893 by 1,729
plurality. j .
South Dakota, because the Democrats
and Populists together had a plurality
over the Republicans iu 1892 under ad
verse circumstances that kept Democrats
from the polls and reduced their vote more
than 60 per cent -
Washington, because it has shown large
Democratic and Populist pluralities over
the Republicans iu 1892 and all subsequent
West Virginia, because its straight
Democrats gave Cleveland a plurality, be
cause all its state officers and judiciary are
Democratic and because in eight elections
only one has boon Republican in its result.
The probablo results, based on the fore
going facts, are thus stated:
Assured Democratic 153

California 0

On the other hand, it is seriously ques
tioned whother New York, with its deadly
Republican local feud and a Democracy
growing in enthusiasm for Bryan, whose
only crimes appear to be his youth and his
eloquence, will bo found In the Republican
column. Many Democrats deny that Ohio
can be safely counted for McKlnley, while
every man with a knowledge of politics can
judge whether It will not be more probable
that Iowa, Michigan and Wisconsin will
be found rolling on to the Democratic
shore on the great western tidal wave
than that Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Ne
braska, North Carolina, Oregon and Louis
iana will range themselves in the Republic
an column.
Rousing Meeting of the Free Silver
Eepublican QhA.
He Defines the Three Classes of Re
publicans Very Aptly.
They're AH For Bryan.
The free silver republican club held a
large and enthusiastic meeting ou the
west side of the government square last
evenine. with Attorney Rainbolt as the
principal speaKer.
The meeting was called to order by
Chairman Laws. , C. Y. Long read the
minutes of the previous meeting. A mo
tion was then made and carried at the
suggestion of Mr. Humphrey that a com
mittee of nine be appointed to take com
plete charge of the exercises to be held
here on the 8th of September, when
Bryan and Sewall will be notified of their
nomination by the silver party of the
United States.
The meeting was then opened by a few
excellent selections by a free silver glee
club, composed of University students.
"What you go'in to do Uanna, what
vou iro'in to do?" brought down the
Mr. Rainbolt then discussed free silver
from a republican standpoint. He
said there were three kinds of republi
cans here. First, those who are willing
to cast off party prejudice for a time and
look only to the good of the country;
second, those who were born republicans,
rocked in a republican cradle, and who
bad come to be a mere bundle of preju
dices; third, there were the office seekers,
or those who expected to be office seek
ers simply because Lancaster county was
a republican county. With the last two
classes there was little hope of salvation,
but he believed the rank and file of re
publicans were looking for light.
By means of a chart he showed that
the United States produced the great
bulk of the silver of the world, and added
that John M. Thurston was not in favor
now of American mints for American
mines and that ' he doubted his other
statement that his patriotism was as
eternal as the stars.
He said: "I have never before taken
part in politics. My republican friends
now come around and tell me what a
nice young man I am and that it is too
bad I'm leaving the party just as it was
ready to give me something. I have
never asked any party for an office. The
republican party when it met at St. Louis
deserted me without just cause or provo
cation and if it doesn't come back and
apologize to me and my friends I may
seek a divorce. A statesman is one who
looks beyond state or local interest,
sees a grsat principle, then advocates it
without the consent or aid of any party
on earth. A politician is one who
watches public sentiment and rides on
the tides of affairs. In this campaign
W. J. Bryan is the statesman. McKin
ley was nominated by the people but in
order to be president he accepted 4he
plank made by the same syndicate that
controlled the Cleveland administration.
In closing he said: "They tell ue that
gold is the honest money. Did it ever
pay a soldier or do anything lor trie com
mon people? No, it hid like the coward
it is. Gold is a deserter and a spy that
was never hung."
Great applause and enthusiasm greeted
the soeeker all through his speech.
U. W. Kerge was then called lor and
responded in his usual forcible style, after
which the meeting adjourned for one
