that of the most conspicuous purl of

by means of his special knowledge of
his division of the business nnd by rca
bon of his marked personality, com
bined in the firm n power for the con
trol of theatrical affairs which has
been seldom approached in this coun
try. They made the distinct reputa
tion for themselves of being men
whoso words were their bonds, and It
has been said within the last eight
years that the ilrm merely had to cable
any distinguished urtist in Europe or
America thut their services were de
sired, and, if disengaged, the aid of
the artist was theirs. The firm had
the absolute eon ildenco of singers und
actors alike. They never went back
on their promises.
Toward tho end of last May tho
firm, about whom financial dlillculties
had been collecting for some time,
were compelled to assign. Tho oper
atic ventures of tho three since 1801
hud given them great profits, but with
two or threo exceptions their dramatic
xindertukings were disastrous, not only
swallowing up all the great gains of
the opera seasons, but running tho

themselves, as a firm and as individ
uals, practically stripped of every dol

audience from a stand a few blocks
from the station. He had received a
copy of a paper published there in
which certain questions were usked.
He referred to It as follows: "Ladles

that it bore no stump except the spe

was sent by the editor himself. Tho

uslcing soino questions myself, If I am

therefore I will ask If the editor of tho

Mr. Bryan asked: "Will you let mo

"He has gone where his circulation
is going," was the reply.
Mr. Bryan usked ugaln: "If ho will
not make himself known, will soracono
point him out to mo?"
"Ho has gone," was the answer.
"Well, If ho is not hero to hear tho
answers to his questions," Mr. Bryan
went on, "I will wait until he attends
a meeting and then answer him. 1 am
informed that the editor of the Owosso
Press Is standing In that wagon in tho
rear of the crowd und wears a blue
cap. Now, I will nsk him a question.
'Did you indorse the financial plank

You have asked me questions: you
ought to be willing to answer questions.
'Did you indorse the minority plank at

editor of this paper and to unmask a
man who is seeking to elect a Repub
lican by pretending to support the In

time left to talk to you. 1 ask you to
remember that the gold standard never
fought un open light. Thoso who sup
ported the minority plank at Chicago
pretended to be afraid that free coin
age would prevent international bi
metallism, and when they got to In
dianapolis they forgot all about
international bimetallism and de
clared for the gold standard.
