Mr. Bryan sincerely believes thnt
his election to the presidency woufd
be a blessing to the country and
herefore he feels it his duty to give
the country as many chances as it
desires to elect him. Wo acquit him
of personal ambition in tho matte?

the chances are that he will be elect

that Mr. Bryan is no more radical
than President Roosevelt.
The change in public opinion of
Mr. Brj'an in the past eleven years
is remarkable. No other public man
in our history was ever more reviled
than he was in 189G. Defeated then,
and again in 1900, lie has emerged
from the ruin of his fortunes and
stands today perhaps the n.ost wide

Cleveland. His election to tile presi

have been regarded as a caldmity,
today would be received generally
with equanimity by the people. Chi
