In a spiTch on Wednesday Major Me-
Klnley said that under ti protective
larUY this country paid better \vnges
than were given to the people of any
other country and "not until lSi ! ) ; , more
limn thtrly-two years after Its adoption ,
hail we failed to preserve our own high
standard of wage * , by long odds the
best and highest of any other great
Industrial nation. " The truth of this
Is known to every workingman who
earned n living before democratic suc
cess four years ago menaced protection
and especially to those who were wage-
workers during the period from 1S70 to
ISM. The younger class of worklngmen
may not fully appreciate what was
stated by Major McKinley , but the older
ones , who experienced the steady ad
vance of wages under the policy which
developed our Industries and created a
market for labor , can do so.
What are the facts , for It. Is by these
that men's Judgment should be guided.
The highest statistical authority on the
subject Is Labor C'ommlsloner Wright ,
who under direction of the senate- com
mittee on Huancc made an Investigation
as to ( lie movement of prices and wages
in this country between IS-lt ) and 1Si ! ) > .
Commissioner Wright's tables take the
. \ear ISiM ) as the busts of comparison
and using the number 100 as the average
of prices and wages for that year It Is
shown that In 1SS11 wages had Increased
to KM.7 ) , tliu Increase over 1870 having
been li" per cent. It Is noteworthy , also ,
that It was after t.he resumption of spe
cie payments in 187 ! ) that there was a
steady advance , thus showing that the
gold standard helped to Increase the pay
of labor. Another authority which sus
tains ( lie statement , of Major MeKlnley
Is the report submitted to the senate in
ISIXI by a special committee of that body
which made a ir.ost comprehensive-
exhaustive Investigation regarding
wages and prices. According to this re
port wages since 18(10 ( had risen ( IS per
cent , while their purchasing power had
Increased to a much greater extent.
There had also been a reduction during
the period covered In the hours of labor.
Ilefcrrlng to these facts In a speech
in the house of representatives , Thomas
15. Keed said : "The history of the world
shows nothing like It" and he stated an
Indisputable fact. Steadily under the pol
icy of protection to American industries
American labor advanced In earning
power , In dignity and In independence.
The Industrious and thrifty woiklngman
of the I'nlted States was enabled to
enjoy more of the necessaries , the com
forts , the pleasures of life than the
worklugntan of any other land under
the sun. That labor as a whole was
highly prosperous during this period the
vast accumulations In savings abund
antly show , while It Is safe to say that
a greater number of worklngmpn se
cured homes of their own In the twenty
years from 1870 to IS'.K ' ) than had done
so In all the years before 1870 since
tlie foundation of the government.
It was this that made the American
market the best In the world. With
well-t'niployed ' ami well-paid labor our
people consumed more titan those of any
other nation. It has boon said that
wlnle we are nominally 70,000,000 people
ple , as a market for manufactures and
footN we are potentially 17. > ,000.000 as
compared with the next best nation on
the globe. In older that the American
market shall continue to be the best In
the world there must be a return to that
policy which made It so by giving full
employment to American labor at Amer
ican wages. A judicious policy of pro
tection will do this. Nothing else will.
That policy Is to be secured only through
the success of the republican party.
The opposition to that party Is llrmiy
committed against protection. It is the
enemy of American Industries and
American labor. It makes no promise
to the worklngman that it can fulllll.
The hope of the wage earner , as of all
other producers , is In the triumph of
republican policies.
A riooi ) or
It must be discouraging to most of Mr.
Hryan's supporters to be told by hbn
that there Is no danger free silver would
bring a Hood of money. It Is the expecta
tion of a Hood of money that makes the
great majority of them so zealous and
vociferous In the cause. Ask them what
their chief reason is for advocating frei
silver and in ninety-seven cases out of a
hundred th.\v will reply that It Is be
cause money would be more abnmlanl
and more easily obtained. Not a few or
the Ics * Intelligent of them , indeed , be
lieve that with free silver they could gel
money without much effort that It
would be "lying around loose , " so to
speak. Mr. Hryan Is certainly responsi
ble for creating this impri'ss'on by telling
the people thai If they owed debts 01
taxes all they would have to do when
there was free silver would be to go out
and secure the sliver to convort.lnto dollars -
lars and use the dollars to pay oil' their
obligations. He does not. therefore , deal
unite fairly with his deluded followers
to tell them that free coinage will not
make a Hood of money. It will tend to
dasli their hopes and dampen their en
15ut from another point of view It may
be asked , If there would not be a Hood
of money after free coinage how would
the gap he tilled which the expulsion oi
gold would cause ? No rational man
doubts that free sliver would drive out
gold , l-'ear of that policy has already
practically done so , though gold Is stlil
performing the function of money. Tn-
ipu'stlonably it would cease to do this
as .soon as the country got on a silver
lmss. ! This would conlracl the available
currency over . < ? 5K)1000,0)0. ( ) ( ) The gap
could not be tilled with the free coinage
of the Tnited States for a long time ,
certainly several yearn. Hnless there
was a largo Inflow of foreign silver ,
therefore , we should have for a consid
erable time far less money to do him-
Iness with than we have now and It can
not reasonably be supposed that under
such circumstances people who have
debts and taxes to pay won't ! 1m any Let
ter able to do HO than they now are. On
the contrary they would lliul It moiv
dllllenlt to obtain money. Nor Is It prob
able that with such a contraction prices
would rise. The success of the free nil-
vur tidicuio ( lepiuid * upou a Jlood of (
money and when Mr. Ilrynii nays this
would not happen he strikes a blow at
that policy. Hut he Is likely to say the
very opposite at any time , so that hlu
followers need not feel wholly dls-
< ix
After all that has been said about
g a vessel of our navy through
the Dardanelles and the refusal of the
Turkish government to allow It to bi.
done , It Is gratifying to llnd that our
government has never made any such
reijuest. or even seriously contemplated
doing so. There has been no urgent
reason why It should have desired to
scud a warship to Constantinople. It Is
true that the outbreaks In that city may
have caused a feeling of apprehension
at the American legation , but there hap
not been any serious danger and the re
lations of the American minister with
the Turkish government Insured the
legation adequate protection. It might
be pleasing to our national pride to have
naval representation In the Itosphorus ,
but It Is also possible that It might lead
to our becoming Involved In some com
plication and the common sense of the
country will approve of the determina
tion of th administration to avoid such
a possibility. So far as appears Amer :
lean Interests In Turkey are being
treated with proper respect , or al any
rate with as much respect as can reas
onably be looked for from that iiuarter ,
and the obviously wise course Is to do
nothing that would be likely to disturb
these amicable and satisfactory rela
tions. We want no troublesome compli
cations In that portion of the world and
should keeji as remote as possible from
the controversy between the Turkish
government and the powers whose duty
It Is to exercise a survelllanue over
Turkish affairs.

I am glad to come to thU city , bccauso In
coming It gives mo a chance to say a word
In defense of Senator I'cttlsrcw among his
own people. My friends , there arc times ,
there nro occasions which try men's sottls.
To leave old party associates Is not an easy
matter , anil far more difficult does that duty
become when the person who leaves Is one
who received honors at the hands of his
party. Hut , my friends , I believe Senator
PcttlKrew did the manly thhiR and the
courageous thing when ho determined tc
protect the Interests of the people instead
of bowing under the yoke of the gold
standard. William Jennings Uryan at Sioux
What was "the manly thing" for which
Candidate Uryan went out of his way
to praise Senator I'ettlgrcw ? AVas it
anything anyone elfe would call
"manly ? " Was it anything llrymi con
sidered "manly" at the time It took
place ? If Mr. Uryan thinks It "manly"
ftow , why has he changed Ids mind ? Did
he think It "manly" when , as editor of
the World-Herald , he printed In his
paper of March 127 , 180(1. ( this scathing
denunciation of the senator's conduct
under the caption "The 1'asslng of
1'ettlgrew ? "
The friends of Senator Pcttlsrew/wllf read
with disappointment and regret the report
of the proceedings of the South Dakota ic-
publican convention. Mr. Pcttlgrew not on ) :
favors the free and unlimited coinage of
silver , but ho lias pointed out with force
ami eloquence the Injury done his people
by a gold standard. Ho went to the state
convention and inado n light against the cold-
bug element , but was overcome. So far , his
record wes consistent and his course honora
ble , nut Mr. Pcttlgrcw wanted to be a
delegate to the national convention , and the
goldbugs would not let him go unices In
would promise to vote and work for the
gold standard policy. Ambition silenced hi ?
conscience , and ho bartered away his con
victions for the paltry honor of being , <
delegate. When a man agrees to work for
the accomplishment of a thing which he
believes to bo ruinous to the country he
reaches the end of his usefulness. Senator
Pettlgrew Is a candidate for re-election , but
ho will find re-election Impossible.
Not content with stigmatizing this
"manly thing" as the bartering away of
conviction , Mr. Hryan followed this up
in the World-Herald of March 150 , 181)0 ) ,
with some more parting hot shot :
Poor Pettlgrow ! The goldbugs are re
joicing at hts humiliation and the silver
men refuseto sympathize with a man who
ls willing to purchase a temporary honor
by a surrender of principle. Defeat might
have coma to the senator without any fault
of.his own , but dishonor was of his own
Hut I'ettlgrew , after surrendering prin
ciple and choosing dishonor , achieved
the distinction of doing "the manly
thing" by violating the Instructions of a
convention which he had taken oatli to
execute and joining with the bolters at
the republican national convention at
St. Louis. How did that affect him In
the eyes of Hryan ? Witness the edi
torial pirouette which Mr. Hryan per
formed In his paper of June 22 , ISOU :
Senator I'ettlgrow of , South Dakota has
vindicated himself. When It was reported
that ho had agreed to vole for a gold stand
ard In order to go as a delegate to St.
Louis the World-Herald criticised him. His
bold stand for silver Is a sufficient answer
to the charge and we offer an apology.
What are we to think of Uryan after
such a performance ? Can a man be
sincere and consistent who brands an
act as dishonorable and then character
izes it as manly and courageous ? Wha't
are we to think of a man who asserts
that onu hctiayal of trust Is dishonor ,
but that two betrayals of trust are com
mendable ? Sir. Uryan prates about de
votion to principle \Vhlle he praises sur
render of principle. He makes Just
criticism of faithlessness and then re
tracts and apologizes for doing so. If
"dishonor" can become "manly" there
can be no longer any ocrmitim lo dis
tinguish between right and wrong.
That .T. Kiancls Korsythe forgery con
tinues to bob up every now and then
wherever a popocrat thinks he has found
a dupe to bo gulled by It. The Kortfythe
letter Is one of the boldest campaign
fakes that have been manufactured this
year. It was circulated by the Hryan
organs with full knowledge of Its spuri
ous character. No party that re.sortn
to Hticli Impositions deserves the conll-
deuce of the people.

"Persons who ride bicycles have health )
bodies and sound 'minds , and that accounts
for their hatred of the morbid and unwholp
sotno principles of Uryanlsm. "
This remark was recently made by the
head of a largo Now York bicycle house. A
llko sentiment has been expressed by scv
era ! other wheel manufactuicrs , some o
whom positively assert that they know o
not ono wheelman who will vote the Uryai
ticket. At the national meeting of the
League of American Wheelmen In Louisville ,
n few works ago politics was one of thr
chief topics discussed. McKtnley buttons
and badges were to be Hern everywhere
and the gold men apparently had things
all their own way.
These facts may seem of trilling Impor
tance unless one considers that. In America
several millions of persons ride bicycles
Add to this the great number of men whr
are engaged In manufacturing , eclllng am
repairing bicycles and making tires am
wheel sundries , and It will be seen that thr
aggregate number of persons connected will
the bicycle Industry In America Is per
lentous. There arc 150 large bicycle com
panics In this country , several of them hav
ing over 1,000 agents each , and their agentr
altogether number fully 125,000. Judging
from Oio men of their guild that one meets
In this city , bicycle agents are by no means
slow or short-sighted In acting for their
own Interest , as well as that of their cm
ploycrs , and the Immense army of bicyclist *
who create the demand for their services.
Wo believe , too , that the men employed Ir
wheel factories are as anxious tn have work
at good wages next year as are the agents
and. If present Indications go for anything
a big majority of the voters among the nev

Mr. Uryan ppoko in St. Paul Saturday ,
and this report Is sent of a nceno that oc
curred :
A man In the audience Inquired how U
would be any easier , under free coinage
to get silver from the sliver kings than
It Is to get gold from the gold klnus.
Mr. Uryan replied : "Is that all the dif
ficulty my friend hen , or has ho some other
I can explain at the same tlmo ? ( Applause. )
"My friends , the gentleman has asked n
very simple question , and I am glad that
U Is asked , because It will show you what
liny things can ho stumbling blocks for
those who do not want to step over them.
( Applause. )
"Tho gentleman wants to know how wo
arc goliiB to pet money from thn silver
kings. I want him to remember this : That
ho has two arguments ( If ho represents the
gold standard ) which I would like to have
him reconcile when he ban limp. They toll
us that the silver king will convert wliat
Is only worth CO ccnta Into a dollar and
make the difference. That Is ono of the
troubles , ii It not ? "
The man : "It Is. "
Mr. llryan : "Answer , then , when ho hp.-
done that , It will bo .1 50-crnt dollar ; tliati-
Riiothpp dimculty. Is It not ? " ( Great cheer
"Now , when you have time to think aboui
It , I want you tn trv to Puiro out how tha'
can bo a 109-cent dollar long enough for thi
miner to moke 60 cents on It , and how i'
would then become a CO-ccnt dollar for al
the rent of the people. ( Applause. ) Th'
only way In which the mines can make tha'
profit la by converting a plrce of Mlvcr nox
worth CO cents Into a dollar which will Ir
worth 100 cents. If , when he gcti througl
ho has only converted a HO-ccnt piece of
silver Into a CO-ccot dollar he has not raadt
anything by the operation. " ( Applause. )
How shifty this Is ! How thoroughly
characteristic U Is of Jtr. Uryan !
The man asked the question , How
vnuld It bp any i-aslcr to get silver from
the silver kings than gold from the gold
kings ? Head all that follows , from begin
nine to end , and nowhere will you find
an answer. Instead of answering , Mr. Uryan
led the mind of tha questioner away , juu )
as a small pettifogger In court atlcmpts tr
divert the Issue , got sonic great cheering
from the crowd , by starting a new question
and in the noUo escaped the Interrogatory
that had been propounded.
IIu hlrnaelf propounded a question which
reminds one of the old Greek sylloglam :
"It either rains or It doesn't rain ; It doesn't
rain , and therefore It rains , " A Ilrynn

WASHINGTON. Oct. Ifi.-Thc approachIng -
Ing mooting of the Cntliolle clergy at Wash
ington will bo ono of gpc ( In ) Interest and
Importance. Not only ro the administra
tors of the Catholic university to meet un
the 'Jlat lust. , but the archbishop * , repre-
siTIitlliK the controlling force of the eluuvli.
have determined to change their place of
meeting , which was set for New Orleans ,
and meet hero following the university
meeting. The two hudles nro entirely dis
tinct , ax only six ot the thtr'ocn arch
bishops Imvo n Vote on the university board.
These six arc Cardinal Gibbons ( also an
archbishop of the It.Utlmoro diocese ) , Archbishop -
bishop Williams of Uoston. Corrlgan of New
York. U.vnn of Philadelphia , Ireland ot St.
Paul and Chapelle uf Santa Ke. They hold
thrlr places on the board by virtue of Icing
charter members. Tim other nruhblMiopa
have an advisory membership on the boa.-d ,
but no vote. This last feature Is Important
In view of the vote on the choice of a
sttecfssor to Ulshop Kvauc us rector of the
university * Seven bishops also have n vote
on the board , viz : Spaldlng of IVorlu ,
Marty of St. Cloud , Mates of Covlngtoti.
I-'oIcy of Detroit , Ilorstman of Cleveland
and ICcnup , laic lector of Hie university.
Ulshop Spaldlng Is In Kuropc and will not
be present. Ulshop Keano Is not expected
to return for thu meeting. Mgr. Parley of
Now Yotk and Kr. Leo of Washington make
up the remaining voting members of thu
board. There are three lay members , Wag-
gaman of Washington , Jenkins of Ualtlmoro
and Ilanlgan of Providence , who have no
vote on the choice of rector , that being a
function of the clergy especially com
mitted to them by the i > npc. ThU makes
twelve votlti" zntmUeri , with seven con
stituting a majority.
Thus far thu names mentioned In con
nection with the Mirccsslun ot Ulshop Keano
are wholly conjeatural , as It Is expected
that each of the vollng members of the
board will come hero with a candidate lo
support , and until they come there Is no
use Irylng to luarn the consensus of opinion.
The view prevails that the board will In
cline tn a trained teacher , rather than a
prominent member of the clergy. It Is
pointed out that Ulshop Keano was best
qualified as nn organizer and manager. He
was not trained as a te.ielier. ns lie was
raised from a parish priest to the position
of rector of the university. Now , however ,
the Institution has passed Ihroush Its
period of organization , when a strong ex
ecutive manager was required , and has
entered upon Its teaching period , so that a
rector having the teaching characteristics
Is said to be more essential. Such a teacher
may be drawn from the ranks of the priest
hood rather than from ihc bishops , who
are prominent mainly through their ad
ministrative ability. This opens so wide
a. Held that thete can be little definite In
formation as to who 'he appointee will be
until the administrators gel together.
The prominent part Vice Hector Garlgan
has taken In thp affairs of the university
leads to the ircntlon ot his name. Among
Ihc more prominent teachers of the church
who Imvo been associated with the univer
sity arc Dlsliop O'Gorman of Sioux Falls , an
authority on church history , Hev. Dr. Pace ,
head of the school of philosophy , Mgr.
Schroedcr. profissor < > r dogmatic theology ,
and some others. While there has been no
special movement toward any of these
names , attention Is directed to them In view
of the feeling that a teaching cleric will Its
named. In muUIng the recommendation to
the pope the board may suggest three
names , aa Is usual when n bishop Is to bo
named , or confine their recommendations
to one name. While the action of the ad
ministrators will doubtless be final In
shaping the action of the pope , yet there.
will be room for private presentations to
Home up to the lime of the llnal confirma
The meeting of the archbishops , following
the university meeting , will have u numbei
of Important questions to deal with. The
pope's recent letter to Ulshop ICeanu gave
him the rank of archbishop and lidded that
a see would bo designated by the archbishop
If he elected to remain In this country.
Ho so elected , but there was sotno am
biguity ax to the acceptance of the advanced
rank. An authorlly on church administra
tion enya thai the pope's language was
effective In creating the rank and thai
Ulshop Ktane Is now. In fact , an arch
bishop. At present , however , there Is no
vacant archbishopric , no that the rank will
be nominal unices a new arrangement of
archbishops Is attempted.
The archbishops nluo deal with the ad
ministration of Catholic Ir.dlan schoola. allotting
letting the sums to be used for Indian edu
cation In the several localities. The chances
made by the last congress us to government
support for ecclesiastical schools may ne-
r'.sjltato Homo now methods of teaching.
Uy thu act of congress all government aid
Is to end on July 1 of next year , and as the
Catholic schools received. the bulk of thi ; ;
aid the archbishop will be called upon to
determine how the work can proceed un
aided by the government.
The coming of the archbishops and bish
ops will afford the first opportunity for a
meeting before the hearts of the Ann.Tlean
church and thn new delegate , Mgr. Marti-
nelll. and It Is expected that several Impos
ing ccrc-mon'f.i will occur.
