Mr. James, a prominent Kentuckian
and a man who is qualified to spea k on
the rxditual situation in Kentucky, has
the following to say in regard to the
campaign of 'M7 and 1900:
'We will carry Kentucky this fall by
lot less than 50,000 niajoriyt. The change
in the artitiment for silver is remarkable.
The people are today experiencing the
gold standard prosprity which is worse
than a Cleveland ariic, Thous-
Knds of idle workinemen, begging, not
for broad, but for work with which to
4 urn it, twsir ample testimony to the shat
tered promises and broken pledges of the
republican fmrty, failures, oppression
and poverty refute their confidence rack
et. What the people want is more
money, letter prices and to drive the
money syndicates out of the governing
business. You saw here yesterday the
largest crowd that w.s ever here to hear
(because of bimetallism presented, and
the enthusiasm with which they greeted
it is ample evideoce tiiat victory will yet
U ours. The people of this country are
unwilling in time of distress to look to
the crowned heads upon eastern thrones
for an international agreement to give
our people the money of the fathers. They
oppose bond issues, and will not allow
ours the greatest capitol on earth,
turned into a common auction block
h round which the bable of foreign
tongue will bid for American bonds."
"Certaiuly, W. J. Bryan will be our
nominee and the combined forces of op
pression, aristocracy and the money grab
bers cannot stay his triumphant election.
The people love him, and no power on
earth t-aa beat him. Kentucky will be
for him, and I believe today, as I said
when I cant Kentucky's vote for him for
prswdtat in the national convention, that
Im is not only the world's greatest orator
but ta world's greatest patriot".
