From the Center of Things
Lincoln , Ivebr. , Sept. ( Spec
ial Correspondence ) Mr. Bryan's
"fortune75 continues to work a lot
of people. County Assessor Miller
of Lancaster county is daily in re
ceipt of letters asking him about
Mr. Bryan's assessment , and he
has been compelled to &et out
mimeographed replies in order to
keep up with the correspondence.
Chairman of republican commit
tees are the most numerous in
quirers. This year's assessment
rolls show Mr _ . Bryan to be pos
sessed of taxable property in the
amount of 887,000. About twenty
per cent of this is charged up to
The Commoner. % The Commoner
has no printing plant , its tangible
property being confined to a couple
of safes , a dozen typewriters , a
.few desks and tables and three or
four rugs. The two automatic
mailing machines are operated un
der lease. Something like thirty
tons of print and wrapping paper
are kept on hand. Replying to
"Joe" Cannon's charge that he is
a nillionarewho made his million
selling "wind and ink , " Mr. Bry
an at OIney , Illinois , last week ,
took the public into his private re
sources , lie calculated that he
was possessed of propery worth
perhaps § 125,000 , but in order to
be well within the mark said he
would call it § 150,000. He then
told how he made it , and asked
Speaker Cannon to take the pub
lic into his confidence and explain
how he had become a millionare
on a salary of § 5,000 a year every
year since 1861 , with the excep
tion of two years. It is generally
admitted that Cannon will be kept
busy dodging Mr. Bryairssspeech
during the rest of his campaign
for re-election
The. Nebraska republican state
committee has ; irr"jed to have
Myron T. Ilcrrick o Ohio speak ]
in Lincoln soon , and his .speech
will be devoted to opposing the
bank deposit guarantee plank of
the democratic platform. As soon
as as the announcement was made
the democratic state committee
arranged to have Senator Owen
of Oklahoma speak , on the samev
day possible , in support of that
policy. It is in no violation of
'confidence ' to say that if the re
publican committee wants to make
.it a joint debate between Herrick
and Owen there will be no difficul
ty so far as the democratic com
mittee is concerned.
On Labor Day 3000 union workingmen -
ingmen in Lincoln paraded the
streets. When the parade passed
under the Taft banner on 0 street
there was not the ghost of a cheer.
But when the parade went by the
Lincoln hotel , the front of which I
is ornamented with a huge portrait !
of Bryan , the ckeers we'e loud
and long. Several unions paused
in the line to givel three cheers
j for the next president. "
i Of course this is only a straw.
At Youngs-town , Ohio , one of
the chief centers of the Steel trust
and the Tube trust , 10.000 steel
workers paraded before Taft , But
the Rteel and tube mills declared a
holiday "on pay" and the em
ployes were , given to understand
that they were expected to parade.
At the central point of the parade
an enthusiastic republican specta
tor shouted : "Three cheers for
Taft ! " But the cheering was de
sultory. Then some one in the
line shouted : "Three cheers for
Bryan. " and immediately thous
ands of men were cheering , wav
ing banners and flinging there hats
in the air. The Associated Press
did not report this , but the local
papers did.
The bee liner from Mr. Bryan's
bat in the direction of Joseph G. j
Cannon has already been scored at
republican headquarters as "too
hot to handle. "
Mr. Taft declares that some of
the Dingley schedules should be
revised upwards. The sugar trust
has just added another twenty cents
per hundred pounds to the price
of its product. Presumably the
sugar trust has seen to it that its
schedule shall be included among
those to be "revised upwards. "
The way to get rid of Cannon is
to get rid of Cannon.
Before Illinois could get rid of
the infamous Allen law. Joe Can
non and his brother grabbed off a
rich slice of the pickings that the
Allen law meant to provide.
The way to get rid of Cannon is
to elect a democratic house.
Tire Financial Age , published in
New York , says of the guaranty
of brink deposits :
Mr. Bryan's financial scheme of
guarantee of bank deposits which
is not his originally , but an appro
priated idea is doubtless good in
times of piping peace in country
districtsbut it isn't of great con
sequence as an issue , for any state
has a right to adopt it , and while
we don't think much of it as a
panacea of banking ills , the re
publican party will no doubt ac
cede to the wishes of the people if
they over demand it as a large
majority. " But how big must a
majority be before the republican
bosses acquiesce ? Does anyone
doubt that a huge majority of the
people have been demanding tariff !
revision for six or eight years ? I
Does anyone doubt that an over
whelming majority of the people i
demand popular election of senators - j
tors ? Yet republican bosses have 1
steadily refuse to even consider j i
tariff revision until "after elec
tion , " and the republican national
convention by a vote often to one
turned down a plank favering ,
popular election of senators. The
party dependent upon the protec
ted trusts for a huge portion of its
campaign funds will not revise the
tariff in the interests of the con
sumers. And naturally that that
same party's bosses will be a long
time in seeing a majority in favor
of a law that is opposed by the
great banking firms whose mem
bers are inextricably mixed up
with those same tariff protected
trusts and industries.
"National" Banks.
No institution should be author
ized by law to use the word "Na
tional , " as part of its name , unless
backed by the guarantee ot the
national government. When the
government creates banks and
authorizes them to do business un
der the name of "national" banks ,
the use of the name carries with it
the implication that the govern
ment stands back of the institutions
bearing it , and it should be a mat
ter of national pride to see to it
that their obligations will be met
as promptly as those of the gov
ernment itself.
At present the government
guarantees a part of the obligations
of national banks , that is , the notes
issued by them. Why not guar
antee the other class the deposits
and make such institutions worthy
to use the word "national" as part
of their names ? A man who holds
a bank obligation for deposits is as
much entitled to protection as Jhe
man who holds its notes. The
democratic platform proposes that
he shall have it. The republican
platform is silent on that proposi
tion , and its candidates opposed to
it. Where do you stand ?
Mr. Taft thinks that the fear of
their depositors Jias a great deal to
do with keeping bankers from the
"exploitation and manipulation of
bank assets , " Mighty few bankers
have been hurt by their depositors ;
as a rule it has been the depositors
that have been hurt.
With the wide-spread alarm at
the disappearance of our forests ,
with the prices out of sight and still
climbing , the wisdom of a protec
tive tariff on lumber is very easily
seen by the lumber trust.
