he found them. Taylor became Imbued
with the idea that the propagation of

That Offer to Bryan
"to Keep Him Silent
Gets Smiles or Scowls
WASHINGTON, S:pt 21.-Specials-Official
Washington received the offer ot
the New York" World to pay Secretary of
State Bryan (8,000 a year If he would
forego his Chautauqua lectures with
mixed amusement and wrath. The re
publicans wero amused and tho democrats
were angry. Secretary Bryan himself was
plainly displeased at thet proffer, but he
flatly refused to say a word about It.
Senator Vardaman, a close friend ot
Bryan, was Impatient with the newspaper.
"It's nqne of their business," he sold,
"and I suppose Mr. Bryan will take the
Incident with, the silence It deserves. Ho
has the right to employ hla own time
as he sees fit"
"Even though Secretary Bryan feels
that he is right In mounting the lecture
platform as an attraction sandwiched
between Tyrolean yodlers and dancers,"
said Representative Brltton of Illinois, "I
believe the congress should provide for
him. The secretary, I understand, la
forced to do his own marketing and buys
provisions as cheaply as the common
laborer. This Is a deplorable situation.
It he cannot live on the salary now paid
the. of flee of secretary of state, the. gov
ernment and not a newspaper should
stand for the deficit."
Representative L. E. Pyer of Missouri
thinks the newspaper Is supergenerous.
"It's killing. Isn't It, the way that paper
wants to spend. Its money?" remarked
Mr. Dyer. "Why, it's only three months
ago that they paid Colonel Mulhall 110,000
to talk and now they are offering Mr.
Bryan almost as much to stop talking.
