The Swedish American Bimetallic
league held a meeting at the Bryan head
quarters in the Fitzgerald block last
evening. The hall was well filled with
Scandanavians and others who are in
terested in the money question.
0. W. Palm opened the meeting and
thanked the club for the honor of being
made its president. The announcement
that, the Swedish club now numbered
sixty members, a large part of whom
until recently were republicans, was
greeted with great applause. Mr. Palm
then spoke to his audience iu the Swed
ishlanguage and from the applause his
remarks brought forth he must have
. reatly pleased his listeners.
Mr. Morning was then introduced and
gave one of the best, mostconclusive and
logical arguments for independent bi
metallism yet heard in the campaign.
He began his talk by discussing the sim
ple fundamental principles underlying
the money question. He illustrated the
law of supply and demand in such a way
that a child could understand its force
when applied to the medium of exchange.
Ue said one of the great dangers in this
campaign was ignorance, not ignorance
in general but ignorance on the silver
question. Mr. Harrison's speech was
,quoted from to show that he contradict
ed himself in the same sentence. These
errors must be pointed out and explained
to the people. He pointed out the fact
that when a man became converted to
tree coinage of silver that he very seldom
went back to the other position thecon
vereions were always the other way.
The speaker then discussed the system
of bimetallism and showed conclusively
that it did not necessarily mean the
nae of both metals at one and the same
time, but the right to the use of either
one or the other. Bimetallism was com
pared to two railroads. Said he: "If
but one railroad line ran from her to
Omaha that road could almost set its
own price when the passenger came to
buy his ticket, but if there was another
road or a water course they could not
control the passenger or freight rates.
So with gold and silver: when silver is
cheap they will use that; if on the other
hand gold becomes cheap they will use
that, and bimetallism doesn't necessarily
mean that both metals must be used at
one and the same time, any more than
fnat both roads must be used at the
Speaking of overproduction he said,
" that gold advocates never looked at
the other side and learned that there
might be an nnder production of dollars
What this country needs is a bigger crop
Can the United States take all the
silver that will come to us?
"If we have a certain amount of water
in a barrel and there is an inch stream
running in and an inch stream running
out the water in the barrel will not in
crease or diminfsh." He clearly showed
that tbe United States could take all the
silver that could possibly come to us
The reason Mexico could not was that
ate was trying to empty the supply of
an inch stream with a gimlet hole. One
reason the Mexican dollar is not at its
face value here is that we do not trade
sufficiently with her. We have no use
for her money. An English sovereign is
good here because we can easily use it
when we trade with England.
Mr. Morning closed his speech by say
ing that until the St. Louis convention
he was a McKinley man and belonged to
the McKinley club but when McKinley
agreed to stand upon a got d platform
he ceased to stand for McKinlev. "Be-
going, being duly sworn on his oath,

Linden, Texas, March 21,1 896.
This is to certify that my wife and son
suffered from dropsy my wife afflicted
for six years and my son for two years.
During that time 1 resorted to evrfry
remedy known to the medical profession
in this section of the country. In my
great anxiety and desire to alleviate
their suffering I consulted two eminent
doctors in New York, and after several
months treatment I could discover no
visible improvement, not saying any
thing for their recovery.
Nbilrt in JeDerson, Texas, some two
years since I happened to mention the
condition of my wife and son to a lead
ing physician and druggist. He advised
me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People. After considerable persua
sion I reluctantly consented to do so.
At first I bought two packages and by
the time one package had been taken I
saw a marked change for the better.

and son had luiiy recovered and are to

UNSURPASSED IN HISTORY.
The Tremendous Ovation Tendered Bry-
n in Hanna's Home City,
Cleveland, O., Sept 1. The weleome
given W. J. Bryan last night by the peo
ple of Cleveland was unprecedented in bis
campaign tour from New York to his
home in Nebraska. Beyond doubt it was
the most magnificent and gratifying re
ception ever accorded to the young can
didate, exceeded in heartiness even the
greeting of the city of Buffalo last Fri
day, and that was au ovation of which
any man'might well be proud.
Last night's affair was more than au
ovation; it was something beyond com
parison in the series of enthusiastic out
pouring that have marked the progress
of Mr. Bryan toward his western home.
It was considered remarkable from the
fact that Cleveland is the residence of
Mr. Marcus A. Hanna, and one of the
places where his personal influences have
presumably tended to strengthen the
influence of Major McKinley.
From the time he reached. Cleveland
until he had said good night to his last
audience, Mr. Bryan was given one con
tinual round of emotional welcomin g.
Arriving at the Lake Shore station he
found packed closely as anything short
of actual suffocation would allow, in
and about the station building: thou
sands of persous whose impulse seemed
to be to cheer and shout with all the
power in honor of the democratic candi
date. All day long the interest of the vast
crowds that thronged the Btreets had
been whetted by political meetings on
street corners, addressed by regularly
assigned speakers, and the arrival of
Bryan contingents from Canton and
other places had augmented the already
over-charged feelings of political inter
ests. Fifteen sections composed one ex
cursion that brought enthusiastice ail
verites to see the heor, and it is claimed
that 7,000 people came from Canton
alone, and included in this was
the Canton Bryan and Sewell club, nnm
Ui'r 2,000 men. Many other Bryan
and bvfell clubs came from towns in
Ohio and Pennsylvania, nearly all bring
ing bands of music.
Ten thousand people bad gathered in
and about the Lake Shore station to
await the arrival of the nominee's train.
and when it arrived they shouted with a
vim that showed their earuestnest.

ered three speeches at different places be

DRIVEN TO DESPERAflON.
Tbe Lincoln Republicans beg the School
Ma'ams to Help Them
That the republican leaders in Lancas

proven by tbe following piteous appeal
to the school ma'ams to please come and
help thei :
Headquarters Republican County
Cknthal Committee. Lincoln. Neb..
Aug. 25, 1896. Dear Miss : Al
low us, as tbe representatives of tbe re
publican central committee of Lancaster
county, to endeavor to enlist you in the
corps of active workers for our party in
this historical campaign which is to be
one of education. The school teachers in
our land are the real arbiters of tbe na
Furthermore, no single person exer
cises more influence in their immediate
neighborhood than the school teacher.
While this is true, it is also true that
school teachers are not too well paid.
This arises from the fact that the money
paid them is raised by taxation. The
united democrat and populist parties
are now engaged in a desperate effort to
place this country on a silver basis,
which would give our dollar the purchas
ng power of 53 cents. Should this ef-
ort prevail your wages will be worth
about half what they are now, and in or
der for you to receive your present wages
t would be necessary to double the taxes
on the school district.

vo you unuK mis couia oe doner 1 re
fer to the effect on school teachers be
cause you are familiar with the facts.
The illustration may be taken from every
wage earner in the land.
Ordinarily the school teachers are re
publican. They read history and know
that for over a century the democratic
states of the south made it a crime pun
ishable by imprisonment in the peniten
tiary for a school teacher .to teach a
black man to read.
They know that the republican states
spend two dollars for educational pur
poses where the democratic states spend
one, even on a per capita basis.
oui mis campaign involves moral as
well as material disaster, not alone the
dishonor of the nation, the paralysis of
business, the depreciation of currency,
lowering of wages, but also the embar
rassment of and injury to the great work
of colleges and churches. It would be a
pestilential blight, destroying every
thing. Will you not exprt your influ
ence to tbe utmost toprevent it?
