MEN WHO HAVE DESERTED RYAN FOR McKINlEY
WASHINGTON WHEELS INTO
LINE ON EXPANSION
Colonel Frank Wllkeson, formerly
Populist member of the legislature
of the state of Washington, anil who
was one time associate editor of the
New York Sun, has rejected Bryan
ism. He says: ”1 am an expansion
ist of the most extreme type and
believe in holding the Philippine
Islands for commercial reasons as
well as a military and naval base.
I have paid taxes for thirty years to
establish eastern manufacturing in
dustry.—paid even under angry pro
test, because I lived in a region
remote from all possibility of profit
able manufacture,—and now, when
Washington has a chance to estab
lish a manufacturing industry to
supply the people of Asia with fin
ished products, I am a high tariff
advocate. I want the industries of
Washington diversified; 1 want our
coast built up and commerce estab
lished. I want to see the consum
ing powers of the market of Asia in
creased, so that it will consume all
the surplus wheat raised in Austra
lia and on the Pacific coasts of the
North and South American conti
nents, and this will increase the price
of wheat raised in the Mississippi
valley, where 1 have a large farm.
1 believe that the success of Democ
racy will directly and disastrously
affect my pocket; that it would if
carried to a logical conclusion create
Industrial and commercial lethargy
on the Pacific coast, and by curtail
ing the power of consumption of the
foreign and domestic markets cause
breadstuffs and provisions to fall in
Hiram Hammer, one of the ablest
Populists in Washington (state): 1
am a Protectionist. I believed that
unless we had free silver, want and
destitution would follow. The re
verse is true. I believe that in the
future as in the past that whatever
legislation we obtain—that is, in the
interest of all the people—must come
through the Republican party.

Charles H. Schweizer, I,aCrosse,
Wis. Formerly chairman of the Dem
ocratic City Committee and city attor
ney: "I have never been a Republican
and I have never been and am not now
in accord with Mr. Bryan and his plat
form. Being convinced that Mr. Bry
an’s election would result in disaster
to the country at large, presently or
ultimately I must refuse to aid or lend
comfort in any way to doctrines which
are so pregnant with evils. Nor can I
find in the issue of imperialism any
real excuse for supporting Mr. Bryan
and impliedly endorsing his financial
and Populistic heresies, an issue
raised to distract the attention
of the voter, and especially Gold
Democrats from these fallacies the
dangers of which were so thor
oughly exposed in the last election.
The best interests of the country de
mand at this time the defeat of Mr.
Bryan and his principles. I feel, there
fore, that it Is my duty to exert what
little influence 1 may command in op
posing his election, and to cast my
vote as my convictions dictate, for Mc
Kinley and Roosevelt."
John Johnston, cashier of the Marine
Nationul Bank of Milwaukee, formerly
the Wisconsin Marine Bank, the oldest
hanking institution in the West, and
Alfred James, president of the North
western National Fire Insurance Com
pany, both leaders of the Wisconsin
Democracy, have declared for Presi
dent McKinley. Messrs. Johnston and
James have always been stalwarts of
the party. They declare that many
other Democratic business men are go
ing to desert the Democratic party be
fore the campaign is over. Mr. Johnston
said: "Yes, I am a Republican, for the
present, at least. In IN'Jli, when Bryan
was nominated at Chicago, free silver
was made the issue of the campaign. I
was opposed to free silver then, and
have been ever since the issue was first
presented to the American people. I
think, were legislation enacted author
izing the free coinage of silver at the
ratio of 1C to 1, the country would soon
go to ruin. I am a stanch advocate
of expansion. T am thoroughly con
vinced the acquisition of foreign terri
tory in the manner outlined by the
present administration will redound to
the business Interests of this country."
Sylvester Hartmann, the well-known
grocer of Green Bay, Wis., who for
years haB been a stanch Democrat, re
turns from his European trip an un
compromising Republican and advo
cate of McKinley and Roosevelt. While
Mr. Hartmann has always been a sound
money man and was forced to bolt the
Democratic national ticket in '96, it
was not until bis recent visit to the
old country and because of what he
saw and heard there that he deter
mined to cut loose altogether from the
party of Bryan. “While," says Mr.
Hartmann, "I love the Fatherland as
the place of my birth, I must now as
an American citizen place the Interests
of the United States first. I am not a
politician, but if the people of foreign
countries see in Bryan's election a cut
ting off of this trade from our mer
chants and manufacturers, then It is
easy to see with which party the best
interest of this country lies.” Mr. Hart
mann knows of two other business men
of Wisconsin who went over to Kurope
Democrats and came back Republicans.
One of them is a well known Manito
woc merchant, the other lives in Port
Washington. Mr. Hartmann believes
that more Germans will vote for Mc
Kinley this year than did In '96, as they
are all strongly against the upsetting
of either the monetary system of the
country or trade conditions.

IOWA DEMOCRATS WHO ARE
OPPOSED TO FREE SILVER
E. G. Graham, mayor of Stuart,
Iowa, and one of the leading demo
crats of western Iowa, who sup
ported Bryan in 1896, has announced
that he should support McKinley
and the Republican ticket tills year
and will take the stump to advocate
the election of McKinley. He stated
that he did so because lie was op
posed to fusion; could not bear to
be called a Populist, and that he
had discovered that the prophecies
of Bryan had come to naught. On
the other hand, he said, every Re
publican promise had been fulfilled
and the gold standard and protec
tive tariff had changed the nation
from a borrowing to a loaning na
tion. Me said he regarded imperial
ism and militarism as a cloak to
cover free silver.

years a leading Democratic worker

W. J. Puckett, assayer In charge of
the mint, Denver, Colo., under Presi
dent Cleveland: "I have always been
a stickier for party, never having voted
any other than a Democratic ticket. I
shall now support the Republican
ticket from top to bottom. I have
many reasons for such action, but at
present will only attempt to refer to
one. Mr. Bryan boldly and publicly
upholds the Philippine Insurgents con
demning the action of the administra
tion, commending the action of the in
surgent leader, Agulnaldo. and giving
us to understand he U following the
example of Washington. If this Is not
treason, what is It? The boom of can
non, the roar of musketry, the clash of
sabers—the battle is on. Perish the
politician who in time of war opposes
country, right or wrong.'*
