JTHE JHgRALD'S POSITION.
. SiNCl&tiio Chicago convention.
the IIeuald has rmuainod quiot,
preferring to wait until al froth
jtt&'JCoara had blown off,1 that wo
. night hotter he enabled to judge
of the quality pfniatoriul in tho
, nqtual, mako-up of tho situation.
There, has been a groat howl
from certain quarters of tho
j
jM
United States over what has
"bejm termed "anarchy." Upon
a clos.e examination wo find that
.this complaint ominatos from
fi.ijh sources as are under direct
control of, or under obligations
to thoso men whoso homes and
busjijess interests are nominally
,JnyniOrica, yvhilQ their general
abiding places aro across tho
Water, drawn thero by relation
ship purchased with American
gpld at tho oxpenso of American
ojicl human .liberties. "Wo cannot
fail to remember that Mr. Clovo
jlalid was lirst olectcd president,
by reason of assaults mado by
th3 people upon this same
plutocracy whom Mr. Clovoiand
hirnsejf denounced at tho time as
ou'eoachments upon the liberties
-of tno country. Upon this same
Jina Jio flpmocraUa party march
edta second victory, and not
until tho shameful ''sell-out" on
thf ariff by a democratic con
g$s.f? two years ago -wore tho
pjfoplo enabled to realize how
pp.verless.tho party was to ac
cotylish any rafona of govern
ment, until fir&fc securing a re
lease from dominating influences,
to whom tho word Democracy is
jaufpjous to start with. If it is
"anarchy" for a party whoso
boast it has always boon to pro
tect people from tho encroaching
powers of those who boliovo that
ja piosideiit' shoul'd assume all
powers to himself, rogarding his
sjftjjal advisers as merely clerks
Up agistor his will, then' -wo are
willpig to confess pip: ignorance
of-tho word ''anarchy." If it is
'anarchy for a party to attempt
toJfreo a great government like
purs from suqh partnership in
(thcybiiulnng ftHsinpss as often
tjmesiplacJBS our government in
the position of a suppliant beg
gar at UQ !cot of tho world's
bankers; f ' then wo aro still
4gnorantof tho word "anarchy."
iVe aro not satisfied that tho
howl against free silver is so
inuch from fear of repudiation of
fixisting contracts, as it is
.through fear that certain men
whoso ptitriptism is guaged by
tho quantity of gold in sight,
jiavo, in losing their grasp upon
jtho government. Repudiation of
public debts is so clearly incon
sistent with thq protection
guaranteed by tho constitution,
jthat wo cannot believe any man
pv set of men have serious fears
Ahat any president or congress
that may be olocted would be so
mviso or ignorant as to attempt
to pass sucl laws.
j, yo remember that at tho con
yontion nominating Govornor
Boyd, Mr. Bryan in his speech
Supporting free silver, which
jwas incorporated in tho platform,
vas cheered to Tog echo by all of
he same men wiq aro now de
nouncing him as an "anarchist."

1 no chnrjro at his po.silfon, why Is
ho not as goqd ft democrat now .'
Tho charge that ho Is young and
lilexporioncod in Blntosmahship
may gfo down with a foV old
fogies whoso ideas of tho world
aro embodied in a lot of old
musty books and form, but all
practical men aro awarothat Mr.
Bryan is u clenr hqaded, con
scientious, and honest man. pos
sessed of "ft practical mind; that
ho is absolutely freo from any
and all dominating influences
'whoso solo worship is money,
and with thoso qualities to s,tart
with, thero is no doubt but what
his cabinet and official advisor
will furnish all tho oxpnrienco
and statesmanship required, and
rather than- a government of
"anarchy" wo would have a
government in which tho highest
enjoyment of liberties and free
dom would obtain. Viowing tho
facts from these standpoints, and
bolioving indomocratic organiza
tion and principlos, wo refuse to
bo led a stray by falso crys of
"anarchy," and Uio'Herald will
accord to tho present domocratic
ticke, tho same faithful support
as it believes all democrats
should accord to their party's
choice in convention assembled.
A snoivr timi: before the meet
ing of the republican national con
vention, Ilarpor'B Weekly, in an
artiolo headed. "Tho Advance
Agent of Bankruptcy," mado the
bold statement that all tho ills of
tho country could bo attributed to
William McKinley while ho was
in congresH. it attempted to prove
by facts and figures that a3 a presi
dent, the country would become
hopojocsly bankrupt under Mc
Kinley? ' Now that Bryan has boon
nominated this snmo papor states
that all good citizens must put
party lines aside, and for tho hon
of tlio country elect Mr. MoKinloy.
This is rathor a refreshing situa
tion. Some people may ho enthus
ed by such proceedings, but we do
not boliovo that patriotism consist
alono in voting for Mi. McKinley,
and indeed if tho first article in the
Weekly is true, it would be pat
riotism to vote against him.
Politics in Wisconsin
-4 V
Wo reproduce tho following in
teresting letter from rtho pen
of John G. Mahcr, and pub
lished in the last issue of tho
Ohadron Signal-Recordor.
MirVAUKmj, Wis., .Inly 10, '00.---At
u mass convention here today, uutde
up almost exclusively of silver rcpub
icuns, delcgutes Avero elected fuvor
thj iiomhiuUou of Ihyiui by tho bi
meUllist at St. Lours on the 22nd.
In conversation with ono of tho lcad
ng populist of. Wisconsin, who re
sldo'r here, iio says that Hryuu nnd
Sewall will surly bo no in inn ted at St.
Louis and that tholr election is as
sured. Ilo claims that Wissonsin
will t'o GO.O00 for silver; that the
Germans are nearly all for the white
metal; that VUks ami Hrngg: by their
bolting the ticket, strengthened It,
and their views were corroborated by
tho editor of the Milwaukee Diily
News, who is a leading detnocrnt.
In Michigan tlio stiver sentiment
seems much stronger and pslrly Hues
aro absolutely obliterated, and the
bankers and corporations are array
ing themselves ou one Md; and the
producers and toiling musses on the
other. It is bound to come, much as
it Is to be deplored. It is to be the
sectional and from now on it will bu
the east against the west. Neatly all
the great dailies in Chicago, New
York and elsewhere are against Mry
:tn and liuve bolted tlio ticket. Way?
Ueeausu they mo controlled by tlio
moneyed men. John It. Welsh of
Chicngo, absolutely controls every
dally In Chicago except the Dally Ite
cord and Evening News. In New
York It Ik tho saim; ani tliuy are
obliged to do the bi jdlug of their
masters. Tho rank and file of the
pc p c, however, aro opposed to sur
rendering America to English money
changers. What distinguished dem
ocrats have bolted Ilryan? Perry Bel
mont who is he? He is a banker
woo lives In Loudon after making
his money America. William C.
Whitney Who is huf The man who
has a corner on tho coal oh of the
world and who has more interest In
England than he has in America, as
his daughter married a duke or a
lord. JameH Pulitzer, of the World;
the man whom the American people
so roundly denounced for tho mes
sage he sent ti Lord Salisbury dur
ing the recent trouble between tlih
country and Chill. Mr. Camogle,
tho great sieel manufacturer who re
sides in a custle in Scotland, built
xsussm-smrv,mmmnriKSttats
wHlf A-mcricim domrflMr.-ihttat
who edits an English paper nnd lives
in London In a mllljoh dollar man
sion, says he Is commg to America
to fight tho'silvcr fanatics, lunatics
am! Ignoramuses. Theso arc only a
few' but show mc ono and I will bet
10 to i that he is more lutorbstod in
the welfare of England than America
I would like the opinion of tho men
who took up the musket and unsheth
cd the sword in defense of their
country that America rnjght bo free
and Independent of any nation on
the globo what they tlilnx of tho
arty of Llnoln which is asking tho
aid of a country that tried Its best to
disrupt tills nation, hi making the
laws that govern us? They surely
hayo not forgotten that memorable
year of 1800, when our martyred pres
ident, Lincoln, asked theso tnep for
for funds to carry on tho war. that
the money was refused. What did
Linc'dlu then? lie caused the Issu
ance of money by the government
and everyone took it. Of course' these
men who are more attached to Eng
land than to their native country
prefer gold for as long as silver is
demonetized gold will buy more for
them. All their interests arc with
England. What do they care about
tho farmers, miners, producing and
aboring classes of America? Are
they as much interested in tlio wel
fare of the people as the men who
framed tho Omaha and Chicago plat
form s?
I have made careful enquiries
amnr.g the larmcrs and laborers in
the portions of Wisconsin, Indiana,
Michigan and Illinois that I visited
and unless a great ciiange comes
over the people, these states will give
thnlr electoral votes to Bryan. In
my udgment, the nomination is tite
strongest that could have been made.
Nebaaskn people, regardless of party,
should fuel proud that Bryan Is a
resident of their state Sonic of the
rankest republicans I met admire
IiIb great oratorical powers. Some ol
the best critics in the country who
heard his speech say it was tno gral
est ever deljvored.

ONE SERTOUg EFFECT,
Uf the neoent llepubllcun Victory In tb
Commonwenltti ot Kentucky,
It waa eomowhat early In tho morning
when tho Washington Star reporter
drepped Into the wot-goods department
ot n popular down-town hotol, where
thoro Is always to bo found a eouthorn
contingent--ln tho hotel, not the W.
Q. department and Btandlng at tho
counter thero he Baw a well-known
Kcntucklan of the older school. It waa
about ten dayB after the election news
had bten recolved from Kentucky, and
the Kcntucklan's brow was not crown
ed with sunlight or laurels. On tho con
trary, It waa swathed In heavy gray
cloudfl. It may bo explained, hero that
the reporter was not In that locality
after n drink, bu,t after a man who waa
after a drink. As ho stood talking to
him, his attention was attracted by tho
Kentucklan's talk to tho barkeeper, who
had shoved a well-worn black bottlo
out In frpnt of his customer.
"Take It away," Bald tho Kentnck
ian, gloomily, with a funereal wavo ot
his hand.
"What's tho matter with It?" asked
tho surprised barkeeper. "It's the
samo Kentucky brand you've been
using for years."
"I know It," ho Bald, regretfully,
"but over since Kentucky went repub
lican It doesn't seem to taste natural,
and I've got to try something else.
Supposo you glvo mo a little of that
Maryland rye."
"Certainly, sir," said tho barkeeper,
deferentially, and turned to get it, but'
slopped half way.
"Excuso me, oir,'' ho ventured, "but
didn't Maryland go that way, too?"
Tho Kentucklan thrummed on thl
counter with his knuckles nervously.
"That' so, that's so," he mused; theJi
he broke out fiercely: "I wonder If I've
got to drink water," and walked out of
tho placo Indignantly.
INDIA'S FATHER DAM1EN.
VTorlt Among Hie Leper That IIm Al
ready Produced Good Remits.
Valuable work is being done by de
voted Catholic priests among the lepera
of Burniah, says the London Timea.
The annexation of Upper Burmah In
18S6 revealed a terrible need for succor
to this unhappy class. Bishop Simon,
II. C, addressed the officials on tha
subject within two years after the coun
try passed under British rule, but It
wai not until 1891 that Father Johana
Wehlngcr was able to found tha St.
