What Does 5t Mean ?
In the closing hours of the late
congress the majority party , un
der leadership of John Rockefel
ler's personal senator from Rhode
Island , passed the Vreeland-Al-
drich bill a wild-cat money meas
ure , authorizing the great bankers
of New York to issue their own
emergency currency on a base of
municipal bonds or such other
commercial securities as they may
elect. The country did not ask
for the passage of such a bill , but
Wall street interests demanded it ,
and those interests forced the bill
through congress over the pro
tests of the best manhood in both
What does this new currency
bill mean to the American people ?
If a newspaper i'riendly to Mr.
Bryan should try to tell what it
means the charge would be made
that the telling would be prejudic
ed , and so , instead of giving our
own ideas as to the meaning of
the great victory achieved by the
money-sharks of Wall steeet , we
shall call a republican friend to
the witness stand. Our republi
can friend is one of the ablest
editorial writers in America ,
editor of the Philadelphia North
American. The great republican
writer , discussing the Aid rich
currency measure , says :
"This law will mean the turning
over of the treasury of the United
States to the gamblers of the New
York Stock exchange for a period
of six years.
"It will mean the making of
'good times' and 'bad times' of
'bull' markets and 'bear' markets
according to the pleasure of Rog
ers and Rockefeller in the Nation
al City bank and J. P. Morgan in
the National Bank of Commerce.
"It will mean not only the slow
and certain movements of contrac
tion and inflation by the natural
laws of commerce , but sharp
changes forced at will by the
"It will mean the gift to the
chief enemies of the nation of the
power to issue or retire half a bil
lion of dollars , exciting speculation
or compelling disaster according
to which ever best suits their bet
"What the effect will be upon
the coming elections we do not
know. We do not know what
measure of punishment a longsuffering -
suffering people will inflict upon
"It is not the time to think of
politics or partisanship. A thing
is being done which which will af
fect every employer and every
employee in America , every bank
er , merchant , manufactuer , clerk
"We wish merely to warn one
and all. The country will be in
condition of a convalescent to
whom drugs that are powerful
stimulants , but poisonous , would
"There will be a boom a fev
erish but false activity.
"And then , after the North
American and the few like us have
been mocked at as false prophets
and pessimists , pay-day will come.
And the price will be a- bitter

Mr. Bryan's friends should bear
in mind that organizationis the
watchword. A cause , no matter
how worthy , cannot triumph un
less it is supported by organized
and systematic effort.
Organize a Bryan club in every
town and village in your county.
The local club is the life-blood of
the state organization , and the
bulk of the campaign must be done
by the faithful workers in the lo
cal clubs. Report the name of
your local club and the names of
the officers of the club to C. M.
Greunther , secretary , Columbus.
