for the physical
man the canning of prophecies for the
credulous intellectual man is a twin
Eloquence on ice is agreeable. A
specimen from the Madison Square
garden speech of Bryan in 1896 is :
"The gold standard will increase the
purchasing power of the dollar. "
Taste that. Can you detect any flavor
of truth therein ?
Discoursing of the diabolisms of the
gold standard , that same phosphorescent
campaigner , the
Down Wo Go. , °
Peerless Prophet ,
remarked at Newton , Iowa :
"It will be as certain to make prices
fall as a stone is to fall when it is
thrown into the air. "
Sermons from the desiccated fore
casts made in 1896 by the infallible in-
carnation of Lincoln , Jefferson and
Jackson may be preached from every
rostrum with delicious effect. Denoun

soldier and producer of paramonnts de

At New Haven , instructing the youth
of Yale college , the peerless seer and
Starvation. sage . shuddermgly . , 7 ,
proclaimed of the
gold standard :
"It will starve everybody except the
money changers and the money owners. "
And , as he could not tell a lie , and
never makes a mistake , it is fair to con
clude that everybody to whom Bryan
spoke in 1890 is now dead except "money
changers and money owners. " In the
last four years all the rest have starved
to death ; and who will vote for Billie
At Hartford , Conn. , the peerless said
of the wickedness of gold and its tricks :
"It will transfer the bread which one
man earns to another man who has not
earned it ? "
And the question comes laughingly
up to Bryan's face and ingenuously remarks -
marks : "Who
Whoso lircnd. , . , , ,
earned the bread
which has fed you for the four years
since you made that damphool
prophecy ? "
"It will make the rich richer and the
poor poorer. "
This perfectly original thought expres
sed with such egoistic force must not be
lost in 1900 when
New Remark. , . ,
the tax assessor
shows that no man in Lincoln has been
getting "richer" with more celerity dur
ing the last four years than our beloved
leader , the peerless , who , in the same
verbal eruption at Newark , Ohio , said :
"It will decrease the number who are
happy and increase the number who are
in distress. "
This last sentence , if verified , might
elect the peerless in 1900 , for those in
distress , being in a majority , will try
any patent politics presented with proper
certificates of infallibility.
At Minneapolis , Minn. , from intro
spection of his own ceaseless and ex
haustive efforts Ool. Bryan , with deep
pathos and profound insight , declared
of wicked gold :
"It will destroy the hope of the toiling
Thns , in the four years just expiring
"the toiling masses" have worked with
out the inspiration of hope. The results
are overwhelmingly in favor of hopeless
labor. Possibly Bryan experiences what
sadness comes when there is no hope ?
. , , , In the same dicta
A llreefler. , , , . ,
evolved at the same
place , same date , Mr. Bryan makes gold
a breeder of "idle men" and a destroyer
of opportunity to work and in his great
part of seer and prophet says :
"It will destroy the opportunity for
work and increase the number of idle
And further along in the stream of his
veracious verbosity THE GONSEUVATIVE
finds this verified gem :
"It will decrease the volume of stand
ard money. "
That is the reason the United States
has now a bigger per capita circulation
than ever before i. e. $27. That is also
the reason why $25,000,000 of the English
loan was snapped up in money-pinched
New York the other day. That is the
reason why there are four hundred mil
lions of dollars increase in the circula
tion. That is why there is an addition
to the gold of the United States in four
years of $250,000,000.
