THE DOLLAR ABOVE THE41 AN
The editor went-down to O'Neill , Monday , to hear William Jefr-
nings Bryan , the fount of wisdom from whom all good democrats can
draw inspiration and rest assured that the supply will never fail-
He was honored by being given a seat on the platform near the great
leader of the nation s democracy , and can therefore report truly his.
words as uttered before the congregated thousands. If our political
enemies doubt fora moment Bryan's drawing power , they should at
tend cne of his meetings. The little city of O'Neill was simply full
to overflowing , and hundreds were forced to leave without hearing
Nebraska's great commoner , although the address took place in the
After paying the people of O'Neill and Holt county well deserv
ed compliments , Mr. Bryan began his speech by saying that he re
garded a political party as he did a-'coat so long as jt protects one
it should be worn , and when it ceases to fill that function it should
be cast aside. Proceeding upon this assumption he showed that the
republican party is full of holes , and should be worn no longer. He
then proceeded to argue republicanism republicans , and asked
the latter to gaze upon the toboggan slide ivhich runs from Abraham
Lincoln , the martyr president , to Marcus Ilanna , the present leader
of the republican party.
Taking up the question of revenue , he announced himself as be
ing eternally in favor of an income rather than a stamp tax as means
of raising revenue. ( At this juncture he was interrupted by some
republican who wanted to know why he didn't go to Cuba. Instead
ot being rattled by "this irrelevant question , Bryan courteously volun
teered the information that at the beinnnin of the war he volunteered
his services to a republican president , and had not yet received reply
to his offer. Later he offered himself to the governor , raised his regi
ment , and served with it until the end of the war , or the signing of
the treaty of peace , which was accepted. This he said he did because
he thought the people of this country in more danger than the people
of Cuba. In conclusion he remarked : "I nad five months of peace
in the army , and I have had nine months of war since 1 left it./ ' )
Taking up his discourse , he showed the inequality of our present
system of taxation , when all the poor man's" visible wealth , property
furniture , live stock , etc. , is taxed , and the rich man's invisible wealth
stocks , bonds , notes and mortgages , escaped Proceeding to the pro
tective tariff , its injustice was also shown : Tariffs are levied upon
the things we use , consume or wear ; the man worth $1,000.000 does
not consume one thousand times as much as the man worth $1,000
hence our boast that this government is supported by the people in
accordance with their wealth is untrue. In. conclusion Jie saij. .that
he expected to see the day "when the constitution will specifically
authorize the income tax so that neither , one judge nor nine judges
can build a bulwark around the fortunes of the great and place the
burdens of government upon the backs of the struggling poor. "
Next came the money problem , and the speaker apologized for
talking about a subjer-t which had been killed and buried so often
by the republicans but expressed his belief that it would prove to
be a very lively corpse in 1900. The republicans would rather attend
a funeral than a debating society upon this question , but he intends
sticking to it until the fate of this nation is settled and its financial
independence is declared. Quoting McKinley's words that Cleveland
had tried to make money scarcer , and therefore dearer , he claimed
that since McKinley was elected he had been following exactly in the
footsteps of his predecessor. Asking republicans if they thought the
gold standard a blessing , he wanted to know then why the president
sent a commission to Europe for the purpose of obtaining permission
to let go of the blessing. Many people believed that the' rise in the
price of wheat last year was due to McKinley , whereas the raise was
caused by speculation at home and short crops abroad. If McKinley
raised the price , why didn't he keep it up ?
Speaking of the attempt of the bankers to reti-e the greenbacks
he said he was in favor of the banks going out of the governing bust
ness , and the government going into the banking business. ' If the re
publican plan is carried out the government will issue 2i per cent
gold bonds , the banks will , buy these bond ? , deposit thorn with the U.
S. treasurer , issue the face value in banknotes , and draw interest on
the bonds , too. Naturally the spcaker next touched upon trusts , and
said that the only power that can adequately cope with these arch
enemies of the people is the federal government , and emphatically
claimed that wjtli the laws now on our statute books the attorney
general could suppress the trusts , if he so desired.
Then came imperialism , and Bryan warned his hearers against
the dangers of a large standing army , saying that it will be easier to
increase the army to 200,000 from 100,000 , than it now is to increase , s
it from 25.000 to 100.000. Paying a plowing _ tribute to the citizen

soldiery he said that in them lay the nation's sure defense , not in the
standing army , and then he'quoted from an interview with Marcus
Ilairha , when the latter , comparing England vith the United States
said that this country lacks stability Speaking of the Philippines he
said there should be no distinction between1 them and Cuba. Each
should be free , and if we gave the Filipinos the same assurances that
we had given the people nearer home , the war would be ended with
out delay. There are but two sources of government force and oon-
sent ; we should Always gover by consent , and it is because we have
violated this principle that we are now in trouble , and congress should
sider the benefits , and who will get them. Second is the argument

places the dollar above the man , and because congress" attends to all (
these matters , Judge Neville should be elected. . _ . . . - ]
