"UNDER OTHER FLAGS"
Tho echoes of Mr. Bryan's European
trip did much to awaken American
thought to a realization of his superior
qualities as a puhllc man. Until then
there had been, It must bo confessed, a
- wide-spread notion among us that ho
was a man of no- parts, who had be
come notorious through a pretty per-
. oration about a cross of gold with
which ho had closed a stirring speech
upon a critical occasion. Through this
bit of spellbinding, so it was urged,
ho had sprung into prominence. But
men do not spring into tho place Mr.
Bryan has occupied in tho public eye
for nearly ton years, unless they are
in fact men of very great parts. Only
tho superficial could have supposed
that ho achieved and hold his position
without greal 'ability and only upon
tho echoes of a speech especially an
inforior speech, such as the "cross of
gold" effort was said by his critics to
he; but then tho superficial are numer
ous. Whon, however, Buropo sent us
word that sho could now understand,
after having had Bryan with her for
a visit, why ho was a popular leader
at homo, simply because he was a
great man, wo all began to think bet
ter of him.
His own story of this European visit
is told by Mr. Bryan in his recent book,
"Under (Tther Flags." It is an extra

travel. Mr. Bryan is a shrewd observ
er and an excellent reporter. He saw
Buropo under favorable opportunities,
looked at what ho wished to see and
with his pwn eyes, and has reported
what ho saw in his own way. The
things which an intelligent American
interested in common affairs most
wants to know of Buropo, these are
what Mr. Bryan tells about.
His observations on Russia are par
ticularly valuable just now, for he had
interviews with tho czar and also with
Tolstoy. Admirers of Tolstoy will be
interested to know from Mr. Bryan
that this great Russian is "an admirer
of Henry George and a believer in his
theory in regard to the single tax."
In connection with tho Gorman trip,
Mr. Bryan explains socialism and its
progress in Germany; and, as with all
tho other explanations of the drift of
public sentiment which he makes, this
of socialism is concise and singularly
Supplementing the story of his trip,
Mr. Bryan's book contains several of
his important speeches. Among them
is the famous Thanksgiving address
before the American society of London,
the cabled reports of which caused
that part of the American public that
had despised Mr. Bryan to open their
minds and inquire what manner of man
this could be whom they had held in
contempt so long as a "jawsmith," but
whom London welcomed as an orator
of the first rank. Among the other
speeches collected here are his lec
tures on the "Value of an Ideal" and a
"Conquering Nation," and his dramat
ic speech at the St. Louis convention,
in which he laid down his commission
of party leadership with the memom.
