Some persona have criticised the elec
toral estimate printed In yesterday's
Tribune because It conceded California,
Kansas and Nebraska to Bryan. Our
point was simply that Republicans
could give Bryan those states and yet
beat him easily. We don't for an ln
Etant concede that McKlnley has no
chance of carrying those three states.
If he doesn't curry both California and
Wt-braska we shall be disappointed.
Last Evening's Meeting;.
The eager and attentive interest with
which an Immense audience made up
mainly of worklngmen listened last
evening In the FrothliiRham theater to
the brilliant oratory, salient arguments
Rnd wholesome advice of Mr. Smith
and President WooJmausee, together
with the quick and earnest applause
which greeted each telling point, dem
onstrated to any who had previously
been In doubt that the great muss of
Industrial workers In this as In other
sections are studying out the problems
of this campaign for themselves, and
are not going to be stampeded by one
candidate's reckless oratory into n Jac
obin uprising against the existing order
In other words, the majority of our
toilers by hand, as well as of those
who work with their brains, are hon
est, patriotic and conservative. They
want to do what Is right, what will
redound to the general good, what will
add to the stability and the prosperity
of American Institutions. They are not
agitators nor the dupes of agitators.
They are capable of listening to ration
al argument; they are desirous of re
ceiving honest information, and they
are preparing to vote strictly on the
merits of the Issues. To this condition
of affairs the Republican party pins Its
hopes. It cannot compete with the other
Ride In making deceptive promises, In
lifting the false scare of class against
class. In firing sectional prejudice and
In playing upon the Irresponsible emo
tions of the generally discontented. In
these directions the Republican party
Is out-classed. We may as well be
frank and say plainly what every sen
sible man already knows namely, that
If the determination of this campaign
depended upon bluff, screech and swag
ger, upon reckless speech, false accusa
tion, Impassioned rhetoric and Incen
diary teaching, the Republican party
would not stand the ghost of a show.
But appealing as It does to the calm
' reason of the people; laying its case
fairly, candidly and dispassionately be
fore the public, and asking for no vote
from any quarter which is not the re
sult of honest conviction reached after
careful tufy, the Republican party
can and does hope for success, because
not to do so would be to doubt the man
hood of the American electorate. The
meeting of last night was but the
counterpart of thousands of gathering
in all parts of the country, at wh'.ch
the subjects at Issue are being clearly
nd ably discussed. It was only i local
specimen of a campaign of education
which covers the continent and Is mak
ing Its Influence felt In every American
home. The result of such a campaign
will be the magnificent triumph of Re
According to the Times, The Tribune
lies when it says 412 grains of silver
nine-tenths fine, or the amount that
would go Into a Bryan dollar, are worth
only 60 cents. There Is, of course, no
use In arguing against epithets; but
we' challenge the Times to try to get
more than BO cents for that much silver
bullion in the open market.
Bryan Should Speak Out.
In his Madison Square Garden speech,
In his three letters of acceptance and
In each of the three hundred or more
speeches which he has delivered during
his vote-seeking tour of the country
Mr. Bryan has deliberately and studi
ously refrained from declaring his in
tentions with reference to the tariff.
He has said what he would do to the
currency if elected president; what he
would do to the Supreme court; what
he would do to the civil service; and
what he would do In a dozen other dif
ferent directions, but he has not since
his nomination last July given a single
Intimation of his wishes or his pur
poses concerning the tariff.
All thattWe know about his attitude
on this Issue is derived from his record
while a member of congress. It Is a
matter of history that he was one of
the majority members of the ways and
means committee of the Democratic
congress which framed the Wilson bill;
! that he was more radical In his denun
ciation of tariff Protection than any
other man In that conzres; that he
declared repeatedly agalnBt placing
protective duties on Iron and coal and
wool and that he time and again an
nounced his complete sympathy with
the plank In the Democratic national
platform of 1893 which denounced Pro
tection as fraudulent and Unconstitu
tional, and mads that' plank the text
of several speeches which were printed
and circulated by the million copies as
Democratic campaign documents.
Tire voters of Lackawanna county. In
common with the voters of other Indus
trial communities which have suffered
by reason of the P.ryan style of tnrlff,
have a natural ajid proper curiosity to
know whether William J. Bryan today
holds the same opinions on this sub
ject which he expressed so freely and
so forcibly during the tariff debates of
1S92. They want to know whether If
he were elected president he would sign
a Protective iarlff bill or whether he
would hold out for a tariff bill closing
American workshops and giving our
markets over in fee simple to the for
eign manufacturer. They consider
that they have a right to ask for in
formation on this point. They are Pro
tectionists, almost to a man, and they
don't have any fear as to what William
McKlnley would do in a similar con
tingency. The difference between a speech by
Itryan and one by Charles Emory Smith
is that the latter has something in it.
Read it and see.
Swapping Horses In Mid-stream.
When the history of this presidential
canvass shall be written In after years,
one of the numerous curious facts
which will eo on record will be the
swapping of horses which the Popo
cracy tried to effect while In the mid
dle of the stream.
At the outset Bryan's whole cry was
for free silver. With that he expected
to catch the farmer vote. The farmer
vote. It was flsured, would elect him
when added to the vote of those who
follow party resnrilless of issues. If a
ballot could have been taken a fort
night after his dramatic luimitiat in it
Is probable that Bryan would have rap
tured the farmer vote, and with it the
presidency. Hut two months of hard
thinking have Intervened, and this
short interval has been suflbient to
render it patent to the farmer that
Bryan's argument is a fallacy. Bry
an told the farmer that the fall In
price of ills farm products was c aused
by the "crime of 1X7:1." and that It
ciilncldid with the full In price of sil
ver since sliver's demonetization. Hut
when the fanner took timte to study his
account books, he discovered that farm
prices in 1SH2 were very little lower,
on the average, thun they were In 1S70,
except In the case of wheat, which had
fallen in Mice the world over because
of overproduction; und he further
found out that what he lirnl lust through
lower farm prices bad been upon tin;
average made ui to him in cheaper
store prices. In other words. It he got
less money for his crops, that money,
when spent for the necessaries of life,
went further and bought inure so that
the entries on the two sides of the
account pretty nearly balanced.
To be sure, there has been a consid
erable drop in farm prices since 1SUL',
but any reasonable man must admit
that this cannot juntly be charged
against the gold standard, else It would
have occurred nineteen years earlier.
The only discoverable reason for It.
apart from large crops, Is the fact that
since muny millions of American
worklngmen have been out of work nr
else working on reduced time, and thus
have been compelled to cat only the
cheapest food and n restricted amount
of that. With supply large and demand
ubnorinally small because of Demo
cratic tariff tinkering, farm produce
has necessarily fallen since 1 K!2t nut
because of gold or silver but because
of Cleveland, Wilson, Chirm an and this
self-same William Bryan who now
tries to shirk the responsibility of his
ruinous work In the ways and menus
committee room of the Fifty-second
congress. A recognition of these facts
has taken from Bryan a large percent
age of the furmer vote, and he and his
managers saw that they would have
to make good the loss or lose all hope
of carrying the election.
What did they do? Thoy decided to
change the Issue. Free silver meant
higher prices, and that didn't fascinate
the workingman, who could see no as
surance that If prices rose hiswages
would rise . proportionally. Therefore
free sliver was sidetracked, and Bryan
started out to rail against corpora
tions, , syndicates and trusts, to pal
aver the poor man, tickle the fancy
of the "masses" and ansle assiduously
for the labor vote. lie complained vol
ubly at imaginary coercion; pummelcd
men of straw whom he set up as rep
resentatives of the wealth of the land
and made a great show of compassion
for the folks who qVm't get along very
well in life. If you have read his
speeches from day to day you will
have noticed that since this swapping
of horses was decided upon because of
the defection of the farmer vote, Bryan
has said comparatively little about sil
ver. His main theme since then has
been the denunciation of wealth and
the making of a great grand stand play
for the discontented vote.
In the meantime it is interesting to
note that William McKlnley stands
squarely and firmly by the first utter
ances of his campaign and has not de
viated one lota from a manly but de
termined championship of Protection
and sound money. Ho at least is no
mere opportunist with sails reversible
to fit every new breeze that blows.-
The weakest point in Bryan's w hole
argument is that he does nothing but
find fault. The faultfinder soon be
Worth Guarding Against.
We have reason to believe that
strenuous efforts are being made by
the local Democratic organization to
elect Burke and Demuth, thus over
turning Republican control of the
county commissioners' ofilce and add
ing a large reinforcement to the free
trade enmp. Many artifices ar6 being
employed to Induce Republicans to di
vide their vote so as to give one or
the other of the Democratic candidates
a lift. With one Republican Burke Is
the man In whose behalf a vote Is
solicited; with another, Demuth; but
In both cases the representation Is
made that such a vote would be "only
.But what would be the result of eucIi
a compliment, if many of them were
to be given? Very obviously, the elec
tion of one Republican and both Dem
ocratic candidate?. In a county where
the normal Republican majority is not
large It would take comparatively lit
tle of this kind of ticket-splitting to
overcome the regular party lead and
throw the election to the Democrats.
Where a Republican Voter deliberately
wants to strengthen the enemy, of
course nothing more can be said. This
Is simply Intended as a warning to Re
publicans who do value party success
as represented In the election of hon
est and capable candidates, so that
they will hereafter be on their guard.
"I want good sense and business. Do
not deceive us with debased coin. Give
us good money, the liteblood of busi
ness, and let It flow freely through the
veins and arteries of commerce. That
is what we want business. We won't
have it unless we have confidence In
the future, and no sensible man In the
Vnlted States will have any confidence
In an administration to be governed
by the new Democracy. We want
credit. Credit is based on confidence,
and when Vwe have good -times, you
know, everybody nearly has credit.
Every man's mouth is a mint that Is
sues dollars. When a good fellow with
a good Job goes to the grocer and says,
'give me $5 worth of sugar, 5 worth
of coffee, charge it,' he has added $10
to the currency of the United States.
He has Inflated the money; and when
another buys a horse and gives his
note for J100. he has Inflated the money.
And, nfterwards, when times get hard,
they won't credit, then they say money
Is scarce. There is just as much money
as there was before. Ccredit Is scarce.
That is the trouble. Confidence Is gone,
and we must restore It." Colonel In
gersoll. It Is pointed out by the treasury de
partment that since the repeal of the
purchasing clause of'the Sherman act,
In IS!3, 17,SCt,l'Jl silver dollars have
been coined at the mints of the United
States, which Is more than twice us
many as was coined from the beginn
ing of the government to the "crime
of '7:." Hut the trouble with those
dollars, according to tint silver mine
owner's view of the matter. Is that
the profit in coining them went to the
government. The mine-owner wants
tbut profit himself; and Bryan's elec
tion would give it to him.
It is announced that In every doubt
ful utato and in every state where
there Is any particular, object In con
centrating the free sliver strength, fu
sion between the Democrats and the
Populists bus been effected at least bo
far as the electoral ticket. This means
a S(tiare, fair, up and down fight be
tween sound money and the silver
Btandard, and It behooves every friend
of the former to stand to his guns.

"I um In favor of honest money. I
am In favor of gold niul silver. I am
In favor of. paper with gold and silver
behind It. I believe In silver, because
it Is one of the great American pro
ducts, atid I am in favor of anything
that will add to the value of an Ameri
can product: but I want a silver dollar
worth a gold dollar, even If you have
to make it four fjeut In diameter."
Four years ngo Bryan claimed thnt It
was Protection which was ruining the
country. He had his way. Protection
was overthrown. A revenue tariff was
substituted and things got a thousand
fold worse than they had ever been.
And yet this buoyant philosopher now
refuses to say a word about the tariff,
and claims It's our money which Is
wrong. What grievance will he spring
President Diaz puts the case frankly
when he intimates that Mexico has
the silver standard from necessity
rather than from choice. He would
jump to the gold standard in a minute
If he could. Fortunately America
doesn't have to use inferior money.
Major McKlnley, when elected presi
dent, will sell bonds only as a last
resort. But a decent protective tariff
will preserve his administration from
that unpleasant necessity, provided the
people give him a Republican congress.
According to Walter Wellman, Iowa
Is as safe for McKlnley as Pennsyl
vania or New York. - For that matter,
so ure Indiana and Illinois. But it will
do no harm to go right on piling up
the sound money majorities.
The gold standard never gave any
trouble, but on the contrary steadily
conduced to this country's prosperity
until In 1S!2 Bryan and his associate
free traders looted the federal revenues
by deforming the tariff.
Teller complains that while stumping
for Bryan he has to pay his own ex
penses. But look what he would make
it free sliver should win?
As sliver goes down wheat continues
to go up, leaving the wheat-and-sllver
parity argument of the Bryanltes
ripped open at both ends.
They have no plnce in storied page.
No rest In marble shrine;
They are past and gone with a perished
They died, and "made no sign."
But work that shall find its watxt-s yet,
And deeds that the Clod did not forget,
Done for the love Divine
These were their mourners, and these shall
The crowns of their immortality.
Oh! seek them not where sleep the dead.
Ye shall not find their trace;
No graven stone Is at their head.
No green grans hides their face; .
Hut sad and unseen Is their silent grave
It may he the sulid or the deep sea wave,
Or a lonely desert plare;
For they needed no prayers and no mourn
They were tombed In true hearts that
knew them well.
They healed the sick till their hearts were
And dried sad eyes till theirs lost light;
We shall know at lut-t by a certain token
How they fought and fell In the light.
S-ill tears of sorrow imbcheld,
passionate cries nr.chronlcled.
And silent strifes for the right
Angels sbull count them, ant' earth shall
That she left her best children to battle
and die. - - . Sir Edwin Arnold.
From the Indianapolis News.
It should be remembered by every man
that works for wages that in. case Mr.
Hi. van Is elected there will be no need of
legislation to put t! country on a silver
basis. If the fact of his election is not of
Itself su tlh' lent to do that, all that will he
needed will be for his secretary of hj
treasury to begin redeeming' greenback.)
and treasury notes In sllveri When that
policy Is begun guld will immediately gu
to a premium, und the silver dollar will
begin to depreciate. What this will mean
for the wage-earners ought to be clear to
any sensible man. There can be no doubt
of the depreciation of the silver dollar.
That Is the result which Itryan wishes to
bring about. Ho openly declares that he
means to make prices higher. The man
that now gets $i a day would still get ?-!,
but when he came to spend them he would
II nd that they would buy much kss of the
necessaries of life than now. There Is no
dispute on this point.
Is the workingman Intereste'd In having
prices raised by cheapening his wages?
Does he not feel that he Is fortunate when
he ran make his wages go as far as possi
ble? Even if his wages were nominally
doubled, wouldhe be any beter off with
prices doubled, too? What Mr. Bryan has
got to show Is that wages will advance
more than prices. 1'nless they do, the
workingman would gain nothing by free
coinage. It they advanced less than prices
he would be worse off than now. If they
advanced equally with prices he would be
just where he Is now. The two-dollar-a
day man would have four dollars, and he
would have to pay double for his purchas
es. If they advanced more than prices he
would be the gainer. But no one will
maintain that they will advance more than
prices. Therefore, the result will neces
sarlly be that tlio workingman will be
worse off than now, or at most no better
off. t)f course the fact Is that wages
would not keep pace with prices. It is all
easy matter for a merchant to mark op
prices, ami for the landlord to raise his
rent. Itut how are wages raised? In the
first place they cannot be raised at till
unless the conditions of production war
rant It. When times are good and produc
tion Is large there Is always a chance for
nn advance in wages. But It can hardly
be expected that a policy which even Mr,
Bryan has declared will bring on a panic
will have a stimulating effect on business.
So this point must be kept In mind. Krc-o
silver so far from bringing good times
would bring industrial panic.
The whole testimony of history Is th.it
iiinler cheap money the workingman nl
ways gets the worst of the business. It
is easy to see why this must be so. In the
nature of things wages cwnnot rise pro
portionately to prices. They rise some
what, but by slow degrees, and It Is rare
ly that they cvr get So high as prices.
There Is always a margin against the
workingman. He has to sell his labor ev
ery day. lie cannot afford to wait. Hut
prices move upward almost Immediately.
There ere many worklngmen who under
stand all this perfectly. But some of
them no doubt feel yet, as they did earlier
in the campaign, that in some mysterious
way free silver will henelit the country
at large und help the "masses." So they
are willing to make the sacrifice. It should
be known that nothing can be good for the
country which Is not good for its tollers.
The "masses" In America are made up of
tollers. What Is good for them Is good for
ull of us. And It cantu lie shuwn that tint
policy Is good for them which proposes to
decrease the purchasing power of the
wages of the workliignieli. That such will
be the effect of the Bryan policy is per
