Dr. Andrews is just as likely to be
in error now respecting future gold
production as he was in 1896, and nw
haste in taking an entirely new posi
tion in the matter of the money stand
ards is accordingly a little less ad
mirable than Bryan's refusal to budge
aa intli. f No one can quarrel witb
Bryan for his steadfast loyalty to the
bimetallic doctrine. Where he makes
a great blunder Is In insisting on
keeping the question in politics at a
time when by common consent It "has
ceased to be, for the moment at least,
of practical force or urgency.
Mr. Bryan is not so free handed &
Dr. Andrews. They are both theorists,
but they are differently circumstanced.

not so free to make a new guess. It
means much more to him than it does
to Dr. Andrews to say that the thin,;
Is off. Mr. Bryan's political oppo
nents within ,the democratic party are
trying to prove that they were right
all the time and that Mr. Bryan was
wrong all the time. Mr. Bryan does
not feel that he can afford to second
the motion of the men who "betrayed
tie democratic party" in the hot and
unhappy year of 1896. Otherwise Mr.
Bryan might join Dr. Andrews in

Because of a lying report" of what
Chancellor Andrews said, sent out by
a Lincoln correspondent, eastern pa
pers are barking up the wrong treo.
Chancellor Andrews' talk to his clas
had nothing to do with silver as au
economic question. He has admitted
that himfitalllsts and monometallism
alike were misled by the statements
of eminent geologists, as to the prob
. able supply of gold in the future. Mr.
Bryan could tlo the same without pre
judice to the cause of bimetallism, for
that is founded on the quantity tneory
' of money which many, monometal
lists denied until recently and that
theory has been amply vindicated by
the increased supply of gold. :
That increased supply of gold has
decreased the necessity for as large
a use of silver as would have existed
had the geologists' guesses been cor
rect but it Is by no means an estab
lished fact that it has wholly obviated
that necessity. The fact that a "sil
ver" commission was recently' sent to
Europe to "establish a stable prke
... for silver" would indicate that the
necessity for greater silver coinage is
one that must be met In the near fu
ture if serious business troubles are
to be avoided n.
