A favorite pastime of the democrats Is

Judge Paul Jessen of Nebraska City while
In Lincoln Inst night gave out the following
Interview: "At Nebraska City and In Otoe
county I think the republicans will deliver
about the regular party vote. If there Is
any change It la as liable to be for us as
against us. Bryan had a big crowd at his
meeting there the other day. but I don't
think he changed a vote.
"I have watched for the effect of Mr.
Bryan's whirlwind speeches through these
past yeara in Nebraska and my Judgment it
theso talks do not count.
"The general doubt as to Mr. Bryan's
level-headedrtfM as a statesman and the
fear of what his election would do la the
serious thing that confronts Mr. Bryan
right now, not only In Otoe county, but all
over Nebraska and over the whole country.
Thousands of Nebraska democrats went
away from their party four years ago.
Many of these, probably the larger pro-
j portion of them, will go back to the demo
cratic ticket this year, but you can find
them in every locality over the state who
will not go back to Bryan, for this very
reason that I have stated, that they doubt
his level-headedness and fear the effect of
his newly Invented Issues and his experi
ments in the national government.
"In his former campaigns always Just
before election he was confronted Just as
he Is now with that doubt and the fear to
whi.-li I have already referred losing him
a certain percentage of his following all
over the country, losing him the
votes of men who were for him in
August, September and October, but who
hesitated and at last refused to support
him In November.
"Thore has been a good deal of apathy
among the voters on each side, but this
apathy Is much more among the democrats
of Nebraska than among the republicans.
I do not mean that the democratic noise is
less, for democrats, especially as to the
Bryan following, are shouters. They are
enthusiasts. I am not criticising them for
that, I merely state It as a fact. But In
the late primary the democratic voters
showed an Indifference which I believe will
still be manifest at the coming election.
Sheldon got over 60,000 votes In the primary
with no candidate against him for the nomi
nation. The democrats had three candi
dates for the nomination, beating the
bushes and calling upon their supporters to
get to the primaries, and these three got
only 36,000 democrats to the polls. In the
congressional contest the same conditions
existed as to the republican candidate hav
ing no competition and no special reason to
call out the republican voters, while the
democratic candidates were competing with
each other and rallying their friends to the
polls, but the democratic voters didn't rally.
They stayed at home. They were indiffer
ent. I believe that a good deal of this in
difference exists yet and will show itself
In the defeat of Bryan In this) state. Mr."
Bryan Is coming up now In these few days
Just before election face to face with that
same old ghost, the same old doubt that
confronted him In '96 and In 1900, the doubt
as to his level-headedness, and the effect
of his election on the property values and
the business of the country."

patriot who' was maliciously libeled by the
president. It may be said to the credit of
the democrats In the audience that at no
lime during this part of his speech, lusting
nearly an hour, did one eseay to cheer.
Mr. Williams appealed to the voters of
this state to cast politics to the wind and
vote for their adopted son, who had brought
so much advertisement to that state, stat
ing at the same time that he was a
product of Illinois and that that state took
great pride in him and would surely give
the electoral vote if It did not have bucIi a
great republican majority. The speaking
was well advertised, the band here of twenty-four
pieces played several pieces to
draw the crowd and yet the whole evening
was nearly as chilly as was handed to
Mr. Fred Ashton a week ago.
Kyder's .Speech at Anselmo.
ANSEI.MO. Neb.. Oct. 23.-(Speclal.)
State Labor Commissioner Ryder of Lin
coln absolutely punctured the campaign
theories of Bryan and Shallenberger here
last evening before a good sized audience,
though the meeting had not been adver
tised until Mr. Ryder was on the ground.
Mr. Ryder began by stating the position
NebraHka occupied with the other states of
the union in the agricultural products raised
last year, pointing out where theso prod
ucts were marketed and the price received
Then he gave a description of some kind
of products raised in Itrtti and the price
then received. He graphically told his
audience the loss that would have re
sulted to the farmers of Nebraska had 1S90
prices prevailed in 1!S Instead of prices
actually received last year.
Ono of the must Interesting features of
his discussion was occasioned by his ob
taining a declaration of principles sent
broadcast over the county by W. J. Tay
lor, fusion candidate for the legislature.
"Stato bank guarantee of deposits"' was
the first proposition.
The speaker showed that this statement
Is absolutely misleading, declaring that the
state could not do more than collect a
small fund from the banks and hold this
us a trust, realy as an Insurance proposi
tion. !! declared that if such a law was
passed through the demands of the people,
by the next lekiMuture Uovernor Sheldon
would sign the bill in orJcr to glvo the
proposition a trial.
Then he took up the other proposition of
the circular and showed that nearly every
proposition mentioned in it was already a
part of the laws of Nebraska, enacted last
year by a republican legislature and signed
by a republican governor.
He due la red that the Circular was catchy
to the unthinking, but absolutely mislead
ing and dishonest.
"Why did not Bryan begin his reform work
at home like Senator LuFolU-ue of Wis
consin?" he asked.
LaFollettu haa done good things for his
home state and was now reaching out to
accomplish good things for the nation.
"Why has not same of the nouthern states
followed Bryan's lead in demanding a bank
guarantee law?" he asked. Not one had
asked such a thing Id their recent plat
forms. They had the absolute power to
enact such legislation, but passed It up
as not of their kind.
Then followed a comparison of the excel
lent laws enacted under the last admin
istration, with the utter incapacity of the
so-called fusion reform legislatures that
He declared: "Never before In the his
tory of any state In tho union had every
pledge of a political party been enacted
