"Wont Another Jut LlUo It l'atrlots,
Mr. Bryan said to ten thousand peo
ple at Milwaukee:
Since tho public offlcers nro elected
to carry out tho will of the people, It
Is essential that tho public should
know two things. First, for what poli
cies doc3 a candidate stand? Secondr
will ho carry out those pollclee If elect
ed? While there may bo things
in a platform with which you cannot
agree, and things out of it which you
would liko to sco in it, It is necessary
that tho candid a to should believe in
tho platform upon which ho stands. I
behoved in the principles of our plat
form long beforo It was written in Chi
cago. "Wo havo sufforod some desertions.
Why? Because the paramount Issue of
tho money question. It Is easy enough
to hold a party together when a plat
form moans nothing, but when any
party stands for a great principle, it
must expect some people who do not
bellevo in It to lcavo It.
My friends, this great money question
has been forced upon the people, not
by tho advocate of freo coinage, but by
tho gold standard people. After tho
lection In 1892, a money combine was
formed for the purpose of repealing tho
Sherman law. They did not take tho
democratic platform and live up to it,
but they took one sentence which de
olared for tho repeal of that law and
demanded Its repeal. They said tho
law was a make-shift. What Is a make
shift? Something that will do until
wo got something- better. The demo
cratic platform declared for tho ropcal
of tho Sherman law and the free and
unlimited coinage of gold and silver.
Tho money interests combined to re
peal that law and leave nothing In Its
place. They claimed gold was going
abroad. Did they stop It? No. They
started an Issue to furnish bonds. They
had $50,000,000 Issued, and then had
$50,000,000 moro issued, and then en
tered with the Rothschild contract.
My friends, while the administration
i entered Into this contract, I want to say
that all tho leaders of the republican
party were In favor of it. .
Tho republican party did not de
nounce it in their convention. Now, I
want to eay that it was tho most in
famous contract ever entered into by
any nation. That contract employed
certain firms in London and New York
to look after and protect tho govern
ment's interest. They purchased tho
pood will of theso people. When you
purchase tho good will of any person,
It Is because you admit you aro in his
hands. I am not willing to admit that
the government must purchaso the
good will of anybody. I am not willing
to admit that 70,000.000 of people aro
permitted to govern themselves by th.9
aid of any syndicates, but that they
will govern themselves In cplte of
I am not surprised that the members
of that syndicate are opposed to the
democratic party. I believe that tho
democratic party can get along with
out them. I bellevo that they ought to
fc treated as any other conspirators.
A man said to his Bons: "Don't go into
the retail business; go Into the whole
sale business. That Is respectable."
This" applies to you. If a man at
tempts to do tho government a small
injury, it Is contemptible. If It is a
wholesale injury, It is respectable.
Mr. Bryan then told the story of the
successive bond deals and the plan to
again .Issue bonds to a private syndi
cate which was defeated, and how,
when the bonds wero sold in open mar
ket, tho president of that syndicate
paid moro for them than he paid at
eaojt sale. Mr. Bryan continued:
What does it mean? It means that
the people who would pose as the
guardians of tho treasury would rob the
people. This fact did not excite the
indignation of the officials of the gov
ernment, and a short while later the
chairman of that syndicate was present
where an official of the government
was the honored guest at a banquet. If
we believe In equality before the law.we
cannot make any distinction between
the man who takes $500,000 and the
man who takes $100.
Now, they talk of honor of tho gov
ernment. I beliovo that tho honor of
the government can be better maintain
ed by 70,000,000 of the people than by
beginning with a handful of financiers.
Tho republican party does not denounce
the bond syndicate. The democratic

Tho Danger Which Threatens
Rllrrr nnit Farm I'rlrrx.
Iowa wantB free silver because It will
give silver prices for tho products of
her farms. Our crop of corn in 1895
was 285.000,000 bushels. Tho market
value on a gold basis was $18,500,000.
On a silver basis It would bring $97,
000,000, or an Increase In the circula
tion of Iowa for corn of $1S,500,000 in
Tho total crop product of Iowa
farms for 1895 was, gold valuation,
$108,235,420. To measure It on a sil
ver basis it would bring $330,470,810,
an Increase In tho currency circulation
in Iowa for one year of $103,233,420.
Perhaps some doubting Thomas may
think freo silver would not do this.
For an answer, I point to silver coun
tries, where tho price of farm products
Is practically double ours to-day. I
point to tho circular of President Ives
of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids &
Northern railroad, who admits that
farm products would rise In price, but
says railroad charges aro fixed by law,
and the company would be paid In sil
ver, and must pay Interest and bonds
in gold, thus losing tho difference In
exchange. Supposo the company does
Buffer the loss of the exchange, would
not Its share of that $1CS,235,420, tho
sliver price, over und above the gold
price of the crop of 1S95, moro than
recompense them for tho loss In ex
change, and Is the volume of their busi
ness regulated by law? It must be
borno In mind that Iowa Is an rvrrlcul
tural state, and to lessen the value of
her crops Is to cut off the life-blood of
For fifty-two weekB in the year Iowa
merchants are sending money east to
pay for goods. One year would drain
our state of all our currency, were It
not for tho crops of Iowa farms, which
return the Money, thus acting as a
balance-wheel to trade. To lessen the
prlco of farm products Is to cut off to
that extent the golden stream from
the tills of Iowa's merchants, causing
a congestion of money in tho oast,
which destroys business in tho wejf,
and in the courso of tlmo reacts on
the eastern or manufacturing states
also. For this reason free sliver Is
preferable for Iowa to protection, as
the farmers are really tho foundation
of national prosperity, and it were bet
ter for the whole nation to tax manu
facturers and give a bounty on each
bushel of crops raised than to tax
the farmers by protection for tho bene
fit of the losscr industry, manufactur

A P!h for Kalr Play.
The New York Independent exposes
the journalistic conspiracy to misrep
resent and belittle Mr, Bryan's candi
dacy, and warns thoee engaged In It of
the danger of a reaction. It said in its
last week's Issue: "Th fact that wo do
not accept Mr. Bryan's financial
theories and that we repudiate tho
platform on which ho stands Is no rea
son for not doing him full Justice. By
a number of tho leading New York
papers he has not been fairly treated.
It was evident beforo he reached New
York that they would discredit him by
fair means and unfair, and thoy cre
ated for him a predestined failure. Not
half of those who sought admission
could get into the hall, The night was
Insufferably hot, and It was nothing
against his ability as a speaker that
hundreds or thousands who came from
curiosity went out to make room for
yet others. It wa3 a disappointment
to many that he read his speech; but ho
could scarcely do anything else, con
cldoring his representative character
and the importance of the occasion. Of
course, a manuscript read Is a different
thing from an oration spoken, but It Is
no novelty. Mr. Bryan's voice waa
clear and strong, easily heard all over
the Immense hall, and it was a pleasure
to hoar It, so admirably was It min
iated and so excellent was its quality.
Those who heard Senator Hill read
from manuscript a long opecch, without
a gesture from beginning to end, ob
served with pleasure how Mr. Bryan
occasionally put down his note3, es
pecially toward the end of hie address,
and they could easily believe the Btories
of his magnetic power. Those who
have belittled him as a public speaker
on the strength of what they call his
failure' in Madison Squaro Garden aie
apeaVlng for political effect."

the other night In Now York city In
opposition to Bryan. Tho substance
and method of his speech we may con

In commenting thereon. To-day we
ask tho peoplo to consider Bomowhat

which characterized his address of last

In tho United States Benate, he wrote
to the chairman of the Nebraska repub

among other things favorable to sil
ver, ho said:
I ADVOCATED THE RESTORA
TION OF FREE COINAGE BEFORE
ANY OF THOSE WHO ARE NOW
THE SELF-SELECTED CHAMPIONS
OF SILVER IN NEBRASKA HAD
EVER OPENED THEIR LIPS ON
THE SUBJECT. WE OF
THE WEST MUST HAVE CHEAP

CALLY CHEAP, BUT CHEAP IN IN
TEREST CHARGES FOR ITS USE.
' I ASSERT THAT THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND ESPECI
ALLY THOSE OF THE WEST, DE
MAND THE FREE AND UNLIMITED
COINAGE OF SILVER.
About tho same time Mr. ThurBton
took to writing letters to that remark
able economist, Mr. George Gunton, of
this city. In ono of theso communi
cations, written in July, 1893, he said
and perhaps It might be well to com
pare this utterance with some para
graphs in last night's speech:
I HAVE NO DOUBT THE REMON
ETIZATION OF SILVER IN THE
UNITED STATES WOULD SPEED
ILY AND CERTAINLY APPRECI
ATE THE PRICE OF SILVER, NOT
ONLY IN THIS COUNTRY, BUT
THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE
WORLD. NO MATTER WHAT
OTHER GOVERNMENTS DO. THIS
COUNTRY OUGHT NOT TO
ELIMINATE 8ILVER FROM USE
AS A COIN METAL. ANY LEGIS
LATION IN THAT DIRECTION
WILL BE LOOKED -UPON BY THE
COMMON PEOPLE AS IN THE IN
TEREST OF THE MONEY POWER
FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF
INCREASING THE PURCHASING
POWER OF MONEY AND DECREAS
ING THE SELLING PRICE OF
EVERYTHING PRODUCED BY HU
MAN TOIL. IT IS A FACT WHICH
SHOULD NOT BE OVERLOOKED BY
STATESMEN THAT THE PRICE OF
AMERICAN SILVER AND THE
PRICE OF AMERICAN WHEAT
REACHED LOW WATER MARK ON
THE SAME DAY.
The Journal submits theso extracts
from the published writings of Mr.
John M. Thurston with entire confi
dence that 8onator John M. Thurston
can confuto them. A gentleman who
can be at the same time senator of the
United States and attorney for the
Union Pacific Railroad company Is not
likely to be disconcerted by little In
consistencies in his record.
Itepulillcan Platform or 1802.
"The American people, from tradition
and interest, are In favor of bimetal
lism and demand both gold and silver
as standard money," said tho republic
an platform of eight years ago. "We
condemn the democratic party in its ef
forts to demonetize ellver," it said four
years ago. The party Is now praising
the antl-sllver democracy for what they
dIH wbllo in power.
"I have always been in favor of an
international agreement for the restor
ation of silver as a money metal, and
If it cannot be had without England's
help, then we ought to restore silver
Cnit of l'rnitnrtlnn.
From a farmer's point of vlow the
position that soma of tho writers take
that a farmer can do nearly as well
now as he could when prices for farm
produco wero higher, Bay In 1870, on
account of the Biipplles ho has to buy
being lower, Is very absurd to say the
loast. In order to Bhow tho dlfforenco
between what a farmer could mako In
1870 nnd now I will glvo a fow figures
aa to tho cost and profit of raising
eighty acres of corn, then and now.
It will require the services of ono man
besides tho farmer, and as for the
amount of -work, a man could do about
tho samo Avork then as now, as -we
had tho riding breaking plow and
doublo diamond corn plow nnd double
shovel corn plow In use then. Wo will
count tho farmer's wages tho samo as
the hired man's. The average prlco
of corn In 1870 was about 40 cents n
bushel; land then was worth about $45
nn acre, or $3 for rent. It Is now held
at about $75 an acre, or $4.50 for rent.

Now how is a man going to buy any
thing at any prlco at this rate, which
Is a poor way of stating matteru Just as
they are? A good many of us fool
farmers (anarchists) think tho demone
tization of silver Is partly tho causv
of this state of things.
Laborer In r.nclr.
Tie Canton correspondent of one of
our Republican contemporaries tells a
very pathetic story of hpw several hun
dred Ohio laborers who have been
thrown out of employment by the Dem
ocratic "free trade" tariff bill chartered
a special train and Journeyed all tho
way to the homo of tho Republican
Presidential nominee to pledge him
their support. It is quite natural that
unemployed worklngmcn should cm
ploy special trains and travel about
the country to exploit their displeas
ure. Special trains, and especially spe
cial trains to Canton, are becoming
CYery-day occurrences. In the event
of the election of McKlnley and Ho
bart, there will bo legislative and ad
ministrative acts which will force the
taxpayers to foot the bills for all the
special trains and other contributions
tho corporations aro making to th
Republican campaign fund.
