"TluMiutlook for Itryan and free .silver Is much better than It was ten days ago , " writes Chairman Under of the populist national committee. If so , Mr. Kryau's outlook must have been dismal Indeed ten days ago. for the1 improve ment Is not perceptible to the naked eye. The popoerals say that they have no fear of losing a vote to the candidates of the sound money democracy , but It Is to he noticed that they have not let the opportunity slip by to Hie the pro tests agalnsf the sound money demo crats being accorded a place on the ot- Hcial ballot. If ( Jeorge Kreil Williams of Massa chusetts should run across the blear- eyed picture printed over his name In Mr. T'.ryan's paper , the chances are it would not take twenty-four hours for him to trim his political sails , put away his gubernatorial ambition and join the republican licet once more. Druggists , in their annual national con vention , are again exercised over the prevailing cut rales In patent medi cines.

Mark Ilanna Is now the target for popocratle vilification and abuse , lint every republican campaign manager of recent years has been subjected to sim ilar treatment , and , notwithstanding the fact that he Is not a candidate for oT- llce , has been held up as a criminal scarcely lit for the penitentiary or a merciless savage without regard for the rights of man or beast.

Thin j ' i i portion of the Pnvtitwiti speech I * lie- t | ins reproduced In the tlermaii free tll- ; | ver organs for ' ' " ' immlfeat purpose of j ! influencing riermnn Americans to mip-1 ' ; port the candidacy of Bryan. "Amerlkti , " ; the lending ( Ji-rinnu Catholic paper of' ! th. < w " t published nt St. I.ouls , gives , siu-h great prominence to Davidson's mterane s that we deem < ntr duty to correct Its bold and unblushing mis- statements. At cording to Davidson the republican legislature of Nebraska enacted a pro hibition law In ISST which was to be .submitted two years later to the voters of the state for their ratlllcallon. The chances for carrying prohibition were very promising , and Its supporters con- lldently looked to winning by a majority of at least firi.DOn. "In those days. " says the voracious PavMsmi. "the democracy of Nebraska was very wak and poor and counted but tor lit lie In Its politics. " The situation appeared to lie desperate for the opponents of prohibition , where upon he ( Davidson ) was deputed to se lect a capable man to carry on the cam paign aglnst prohibition. "It seemed desperately hopeless for us. " declared .Mr. Davidson , "hut we did not wish to throw the gun into the corn , to use a Herman adage , and my choice was the billllant young lawyer. William .leu- nlnsrs liryan. who. without hesitation , assumed I ho responsibility to stump ( In state and stamp out prohibition. He was tireless In his efforts. He sought , as he is now seeking , to meet the enemy In his own aliTiughoid. and broke down onn bulwark after another. From that lime on thu filiation Improved visibly , but i.'Vi-n up K ) ( lie very day of election one of our loading brewers offered to sell his plant for a mere song , for my self 1 fell continent that we would beat tin- enemy by at least : i.mo ! ( votes. To do this we had 10 turn SS.OOO votes , but It was done and the credit Is due ex clusively to William .lenulngs i'.ryan. " This historic reminiscence must cer tainly be a revelation to the people of Nebraska. In ihu Hrst place the re publican legislature of 1SS7 onaeted no law relating to prohibition. The legisla ture 1ss : > did submit two alternative amendments tn the constitution , one pro hibiting the manufacture and sale of liquor , the other to nutliurlxe the licens ing of the lliior | tratllc. In the next place the democratic party was at that time stronger than It had ever boon In the history of the state , which Is shown by the fact that In 1SHO it elected Its candidate for governor for the Hrst time. NolMidy In these parts ever heard of Mr. Bryan having anything to do with the campaign against prohibition. Dur ing tlie struggle in the legislature he was never known to have uttered one word In behalf of personal liberty or against the submission of the proposed amendment. When the issue was squarely before the people he not only did not deliver a single speech against prohibition , but dodged the issue throughout his own congressional cau- vas't. In his own town of Mucoln he was reputed to lie in sympathy with the prohibition side , although his party had in Its platform declared for high license ; fnd against the prohibitory amendment. The fact that Mr. Ilryau today con- tldontiy counts upon getting not less than one-half of the prohibition vote In Nebraska , as he also expects to do In Michigan and oilier states , disproves the fictions of Davir.fcon. Everybody hi Ne braska knows that the campaign against prohibition In IS'.IO was conducted by The llee and its editor In conjunction with prominent republicans and demo crats without the aid or consent of Mr. Bryan. If the editors of Amerka have any doubts on that score let them direct an Inquiry to Fred Meta of this city , who Is on the Bryan electoral ticket. The next thing we may expect to hear will be that some other campaign fabricator cater \\lll claim for Bryan the support of Catholics on Hie ground of ids cham pion . . ) of their cause In the tight against A. I * . Alsm in tlds city and state a year ago. On that occasion the World- Herald , of which Mr. Bryan was re sponslble editor , championed the A. 1 * . A. cause and did all it could to elect the A. I' . A. candidates. Then , as in ( lie prohibition 11'-ht , Mr. Bryan played hide ami seek and sought to placate hU democratic anti-A. I' . A. friends by dis claiming responsibility for the editorial policy of tlie paper , which at that time was absolutely under ids control. If the editors of Amerka have any douhM on that score , let them direct an inquiry to Hon. T. ,1. Mahoney of Omaha , late democratic candidate for supreme judge. TIMIKX / Bri.votf. . The. popocratic candidate habitually cites past great leaders of the demo cratic 'party in support of his cause , doing this with the same reckless dis regard of truth which ho shows In his referrnces to the views of republican leaders , dead and living , .loffcrson and .lackson , Lincoln , Blaine and Cai'Dcld , have thus bi'on shamelessly mlsrepre- sciitef ' by Mr. Bryan ami it Is to be expected that he will continue this sort of thing until the cud of the campaign. There is one of the democratic leaders of the past , whose memory Is cherished by all sincere democrats , whom Mr. I'ryan has not , so far as we have c b- siTVi'd , cited to bear testimony to the democracy of the Chicago platform. This Is Samuel ,1. Tllden. No one. we ven ture to think , will question the democ racy of Mr. Tllden or doubt that he understood most fully the principles of democracy. He was a democrat of the old school , receiving his political train ing from .lackson , Benton and Van Bureii. The opinion of such a man cer tainly ought to have weight with those who have not utterly abandoned demo cratic principles and di'ilded to reject the teachings and precepts of the old leaders of democracy who gave that parly character and prestige. Samuel .1 , Tllden was a pronounced ad vocate of sound eurruncy. Tlie Haiti * muru Sun polutu out that lu thu preil- delillal caiivinst of ISIO ho exhaustively dlMcuwd the whole question of currency in Its relation to prices and wages. lie was pleading , that paper says , especially In the Interest of the farmers and the wain * earners whom he grouped together as "the productive classes , " for a stable standard < > f values and a currency that would not rob them of their Just pro- Ills and earnings by rising In value today - day and falling tomorrow. Mr. Tllden declaroiT that "It Is the Interest of the farmer and every other producer to have stable and unllitptuatlng prices for his productions , " and said : An unstnble currency producing instability in Imslnc-wi nnd prices. U peculiarly injurious to the farmer. Neither Ids eihirntloii nor Ills disposition accustoms him to watch the bnromctur or the exchange. When ho hn * con ducted his builnras with prmU'iico and skill , with n fanilllnr knowledge and sagacious estimate of all the circumstances that be long to it lie ought to bo safe. Ho ought not to bo aubject to the tremendous aReiiry of an unseen cause wulch may dUapimlnt his wlspjt calculations anil overwhelm him In sudden ruin. He oti lit to be secure In the tranqulllty of his Orcaldo from thu curse of an unstable nnd IlnctuatinK currency. Tho.so words , as tlie Sun says , are a.i sound now In their economic teaching as when they were utteied Hfty-slx years ago , and they are as far apart as the poles from the doctrine of money Wil liam Jennings Bryan Is teaching. "Mr. Bryan believes Unit a tliictnatlng cur rency , worth perhaps SO cents on the dollar on Monday , 70 cents by Wednes day and only W cents by Saturday , would be a great boon to the farmer in marketing Ids crops and ids pro duce and to. the wage earner In collectIng - Ing his week's wages. " Samuel J. Tilden represented to tlie end of his life the best traditions of democracy , and in no respect more than in his advocacy of a sound and stable currency , the value of which , particularly to the pro ducer , no one knew imttcr than he. A statesman of distinguished ability , his opinion ought not to be without in- Hueiice among democrats who still cherish respect for the former great leaders of their party and have not been Infatuated and deluded by those who. In a false livery , arc seeking to usurp their places. .ts m councili.\ . For twenty-live years The Itee has. In season and out of season , battled for the right of every American cltlxen to cast a free and nntrammeled ballot. During all these years il lias opposed every attempt on the part of corpora tions or Individuals lo dictate to their employes how they should vote and it has denounced as iinamerican and 1111- republican the coercion of worklngmeii either by threats of discharge or black listing. In contrast with those who now seek to make political capital for the cause of Bryan and free silver by crying coercion. The Hco has always practice what it preached. Of the hundreds and hundreds of men who have been em ployed by The Bee. not one has ever been molested , discharged or thrcato.nc.il with discharge on account of bis po litical views or action. On the con trary , employes who have boon time and again actively arrayed against candi dates supported by The Bee are now on Its pay roll. Now. as always. The Bee is most de cidedly opposed to political coercion In any shape. It Insists that every wage- worker who is entitled to the franchise be left free to cast his ballot In accord with ills honest convictions. Now , as always. The Bee deprecates every at tempt to Influence the votes of laboring men except by showing1 them their true interest as citizens and bread-winners. . In defending the right of the workingman - man to thu flee exercise of tlie suffrage The Bee feels In duty bound to warn them against the blatant demagogues wlio are raising tlie cry of coercion in order to arouse th ir resentment and to blind them to their own interest in the outcome of the present campaign. There are times when the interests of the workingmaii do not coincide with those of his employer. In such In stances it is Ids right as well as his duty to light his own battle by all legitimate means at Ids command. But there are also times when the Interest of the employer Is the Interest of the wage worker. In such case it would lie folly for the laboring man to cut off Ids nose to .spite his face. Tlds is the present situation. Ilecauso tlie concerns that represent largo Invest ments of capital and employ great num bers of workmen In mills , factories and commerce regard tlie election of Itryan as ruinous to their business be cause it will destroy credits and unsettle values , Is there any gooil reason why their employes should deliberately vote for candidates and poli cies that would damage their employ ers and take the broad out of their own mouths ? How can worklngmeii bolter their condition by voting to cripple or actually destroy tlie establlshme.nls upon which they depeitd for employ ment ? If the men who have Invested capital In mills , factories or railroads are earnestly trying to restore the condi tions under which the country prospered four years ago. Is It not rational and to tlie inlerest of tlie worklngmeii to Join with them and assure for themselves and tlie country at large the speedy re vival of good times and abundant em ployment at fair wages paid In money as good as the best In the world ? THU I'.WKUT lH'"t'HK I'HKKKXT T.lK/W / A circular Issued by the Department of Agriculture , giving the amount of Im ports and exports during the ten years ending June ! ! 0 , 1W(1 ( , shows that the Imports for the last fiscal year exceeded all bun four of the ten years , thus prov ing the republican contention that tin- effect of the present tariff was to stimu late Imporls.

As a matter of fact the difference between the two years was considerably greater than is shown In the above , because the merchandise lni | ortod In the last llscal year was at a lower valuation than two years before , so that the excess last , year was probably nearer .t- i > t" > , - OOO.OIX ) . But the smaller llgnres are qttlto sutlleloiit as evidence of the. bt'iie- Ills to foreign manufacturers of Ihe pres ent tariff law. It is well known what that law did for the woolen and worst"d manufacturers of England , who In creased their exports to the Itnltod Slates more than $ i < MXM ) . < ) Ot ) the year following the enactment of the law , ex periencing for that time the greatest measure of prosperity they hail over known , imports have been on a re- duerd scale for some months , owing to the depressed condition of the market , which became overstocked , but foreign manufacturers are prepared to pour in more as soon as the situation shall seem to warrant them In doing so. They have still with them the favor ex tended by tlie democratic tariff. H Is not surprising that Mr. Bryan , who Is In p.n "ro3yfflislble for this legis lation , Insists In Ignoring the tariff as an Issue in tlds campaign. He knows lie could Invent i o sophistries to delude the ptoplo from a clear understanding 01' what the trade statistics mean. Asser tions and assumptions could have no weight against these solid facts , which plainly and convincingly tell why Amer ican mills Mini factories are Idle and hundreds of thousands of American worklngmeii Tvnil women sire unem ployed. Yet Mr. Bryan is no less op posed to protection now than he was when In congress he pronounced It the most vicious political principle that had over eiirsed tills country. Ho showed this In a speech at Ann Arbor , Mich. , in which he said protection should be described as "spoliation by act of law" and as the fruitful cause of many If not most of the evils from which \s'o su'ffor today. There can be no doubt as to what popocratie suc cess would mean regarding Ihe tariff as well SIM the currency. Free trade , era a policy.very close to 11 , would accom pany free silver , thus striking a double blow at American industries and Amor lean labor.

" No wonder the Grand Army men In his nudlcncp at Clinton. la. , broke up his meeting and wanted to throw him Into the ntreet , but the veterans throughout the west will make a moro effective answer at the polls. Philadelphia Press ( rep. ) : The Dryanltes have no lovt- for war veterans. Ilryan Is seeking to re-establish the very sain" state's rights doctrine that went down forever with the rebel flag at Appomattox.

From whatever state In which the prelim inary elections are held comes the news of either tremendously Increased republican majorities or r. larger republican vote and greater gains lmn ! ever before. Philadelphia llecord : There Is a falling off In the democratic majority in Florida , notwithstanding the practical union of the gold and silver democrats In support of the sUto ticket. The Indication that the sound money men In the legislature will bo able to prevent the re-election of Senator Cull is the best feature of the Florida news. Mr. Call Is one of the most pestiferous advocates of repudiation and he is now likely to bu served with a dose of his awn medicine. Philadelphia Press : At New Haven nnd elsawhero in Connecticut Hryan enthusiasm was so great that It took the form of breakIng - Ing up republican meetings by the use of stale rggs nnd other Hrynn arguments. The town elections in Connecticut ahow how ef fective such "arguments" were. The re publicans have more complete control of Iho Btnto than ever before in its history. And this following the boy orator's tour nnd the crowds that greeted him ! Evidently Hryan would have profited had uc rcsi at uomo In Nebrjska. OA.MI'AKJX XOTK.S. O. W. Goodpastcr Is a Palmer and Ruckner elector In the Ninth Kentucky district. Ho will stick. Frank James , a somewhat famous Mis souri character , has espoused the free silver cause. Force of habit. The Young Men's Democratic club of Phil adelphia repudiated thu Chicago platform nnd ticket by a vote of 101 to 12. The National Association of Life Insurance Underwriters was polled while In sosalon In Washington. Kesult : McKinley , 140 ; Ilryan , 10 ; Palmer , D. Cleveland made throe speeches In 18X1 , one In 18S3. and four In 1SD2 ; Hryan baa repeated one speech 230 times and has three weeks to go yet. Conservative estimates of the vote of greater New York place McKlnley'B plurality at 31,000. The sound money majority In thu H'.ato will reach 250,000. The Illinois Steul company of Chicago em ploys 4,500 men. Two thousand of them bo- long" to McKlnloy , ami 1,800 to the sound money democratic club. The popocratic national committee's plea of poverty docs not hitch with reports. It Is claimed they have secured the exclusive use of sixty halls In Chicago from October 10 to November " . When Ilryan was In Hrooklyn ho cx- prciwed a wish for the presence of Henry Ward Deeclicr. One of Hecchcr's Rons , a leading democrat , han retired from a lonl democratic committee because ho rannot support Hryan and Ihe Chicago platform. Two young men of Philadelphia have been paying marked attention tn the same young ludy. They have decided to let the election settle matters for them. If the democrat wins the republican la to stop calling on the young lady for six months , and vice versa. Attorney General Stockton of Now Jersey , a democrat , was supposed to havu been In- feclud with frmj flllver virus , and was In vited to take the stump.

WIIIJA'P AUCt'.MU.Vr. Fremont Tribune : Cotton and wheat ore steadily going up. while Hryau and free sil ver constantly decllno. Kmerson Hntcrprlse : Wheat Is going up. but silver seems to be going down. if sliver pulled wheat down , wheat ought to pull silver up. Hattlo Creek Hepubllcan : In the past three weeks silver has gone dov/n about 3 cents an ounce , while the price of wheat has gone up nearly 15 cents a bushel. Pop- ocruts continue to tell us that prices of the two articles rlso and fall simultaneously but they don't ! Hurchaiil Times : We have been told that the low price of whct was caused by the gold standard. Why Is It then that tlie price of wheat Is now rising ? The same gold standard that has existed for n long time still exists with no room for a doubt that It will continue to exist. Stanton Picket : Wheat nnd silver do not necessarily rlso or fall simultaneously , Mr. Ilryan to the contrary notwithstanding. For the past month wheat has been slowly but steadily raising , and will continue to raise , because of n genera ! shortage , while silver has been Just as surely and steadily falling , and will continue to fall , and foi the simple reason that the country Is long on silver. Wood River Interests : Among the favor ite arguments put forth by democratic orators tors In the early part of the campaign was that the price of wheat and silver went hand In hand. When silver went up wheat went up. end when sliver went down so did wheat. This argument Is knocked Into a cocked hat by the present condition of "the market. For some time silver baa been on the decline while wheat has been steadily going up. Pierce Call : It was said a month or BO ago that 5 cents advance In wheat would mean the defeat of Hryan and the death of the silver craze. The past three weeks has shown an advance of twice that amount and a decllno of a cents per ounce In sltMT. This smashes the sllverlte's theory thai there Is a sympathetic bond between whett nnd silver. Farmers will , without doubt. bo quick to rojllzo the present object lesson offered by the markets. Nellgh Leader : Within Ihe past month wheat has advanced In value It cents per bushel. Increasing tlie total value of the wheat In the United States several mllllonx nf dollars. According to the populist tlieor\ of llnance , nnd one upon which their whole superstructure of nrgumi-nt Is based. silver should show a corresponding In crease. Hut , strange tn irlate , the con trary Is true , nnd It has declined. 'Ihe product of thu bilvcr mines ami Ihe < au of the modern reformer run on forever at an Inverse ratio ot 1 to 1C , with little demand for either. On the contrary , there Is a failure ot the wheat crop In portions of India , Husaia and Houmr.nl.i , and the price consequently goes up. while the de mand for the two lor tier articles shows a remarkable decrease- and a dropping mar ket. Scarcity , an i a demand at Liverpool , Is what is giving backbone to thu wheat TIII : SMOOTH noifiiit. : llryiui's llnlill of ' | ' < - | | | : I'nrl of ( lie Truth. I > lilla > lcl | > lla Li-dcer. When a witness Is placed upon the stand ho Is sworn to tell the truth nnd the whole truth.

Indeed , U Is main tained that the witness who tells only such part of the truth us Is helpful and suppresses such part as would bo hurtful to the side toward which he leans Is a false witness. Tried by this rule of testimony. the populist-democratic candidate for presi dent docs not always appear In the light of an unimpeachable wltncta. Speaking at New London the other day , ho Indulged , an he has often done , In denunciation of thu national banking system , cud especially clmrccd Iho National Ilpnk of Lincoln with having wrongfd him In his character of a conlldtng depositor. Mr. Hryan said on thiu " little about the bankIng occasion : "I Know a - Ing business ; I will know moro as soon as I get my dividend on the amount I bad deposited In It when the bank failed. " The falluiu c.f the Lincoln bank \vr.j the direct sequence , It bus btcn stated without contra diction. of the IMS ot popular conlldence In Its stability brought about by the agitation for free silver , which Mr. Hryan has done so much to promote und maintain. Hut that statement , whether It be true or false , has nothing to do with Mr. Hryun'n char o that thu bank had wronged him. This charge has elicited a reply from tin- ollleora of the Institution. They admit thai Mr. Hryan was one of Its cu8tunio.ru ; thai ho was a depositor ; but , they add , at no time did his dcprslt exceed ? 100. and that cm the day of the failure there was de posited to his credit the exuet sum of $7.'l.03. H consequently appears by thn vol untary testimony of the oltlcers of the bank that Mr. Hryan's statement that ho was u depositor la true , but that Mr. Hrjan'H transactions with thu Institution did not end there , and that In giving his evldencu re garding H before his Now London audience he did not tell all the truth , which , as one boundcn not to bear false witness , ho should have done. 'I hat part of thu truth which ho forgot or HUpprf.iiad , according to the iitatement of thu bank ullieiala.

"Never before In tlie history of the country. " he exclaims , "has Intimidation and terrorism been car ried to the extent that It Is being carried In this campaign. " There Is no foundation for such n charge , as every woiklngnmn personally knows ; nnd Mr. llrynn , with his besetting htililt of self-contradiction , goes on to point out the Impossibility of a thing of that kind under existing conditions. "If wo had fought thla battle fifteen years ago , " bo sayp , "wo could not Imvo won , but we have had the Australian ballot since then. and. thank God , wo can win today under that system. " Then he asks who brnupht the Australian ballot to the American people , nnd naswcrs that It was nut t'ie ' corpora tions , the financiers , the syndicates , but the laboring men nf Ihe country and today that work of their hands Is "the bulwark reared for their protection.
