Bryan's Quack Cure for Trusts.
JUST A WORD wore on this sub

going to vote for Bryan be
cause he proposes to scotch
the trutsts. Let us see what' his rem
edy Is and how It would work locnlly.

CARD FROM COUNTY
It has come lo my knowledge that the Democratic managers
are planning to issue nnd widely distribute In the last hours of
the campaign a circular alleging the formation of a. combina
tion of some of the candidates on the Repbbllcan ticket against
certain other candidates. Their plan Is to try to revive former
factional divisions In the Republican lines and to make a des
perate last play for the capture of the offices of sheriff, treas
urer and congressman. One Item In tho programme Is to dwell
disparagingly on the dinner given at Washington by Congress
man Connell in aid of tho bill to create a new federal ludlclal
district. Another Is to accuse Mr. Connell of meditated treach
ery against his associates on the ticket.
The scheme ns worked out is an Ingenious one, the full de-
0 tails of which arc In my possession; but let no Republican voter
9 be led astray. If such a circular shall bo issued, take my word
Q for ft. It will be a campaign lie, deserving of utter contempt.

with other labor. It would also Injure
all Industries nob in any truest. Ex
perience during the last free trade
panic shows that this remedy is worse
than the disease.
But It Is the second item in Bryan's
quack cure that is most absurd. He
says: Klect mo and I will have a law
passed to compel all corporations
wanting to do business In states other
than their home state to tnke out a
government license. Thus If the nut
and bolt works, the silk mill, the
woolen mill, the button factory, the
axle 'works, or any other local enter
prise run by n corporation, wanted to
sell a bill of goods in New York, New
Jersey or Ohio, It would have to go to
Washington and get a license.
Who would have tho giving out of
that license? Presumably a commis
sion appointed by Peresident Bryan
maybe Croker, Tillman and Altgeld,
or men of that stamp. Wouldn't- that
be Imperialism? Wouldn't that be
czar rule? Can you think of any man
or set of men fit to say when a busi
ness firm or corporation shall or shall
not sell goods wherever It can? Imag
ine the power It would put In Bryan's
hands power to regulate arbitrarily
the pilnclpal business enterprises of
tlio countiy; to let one concern live
and kill another; to concentrate in
dustries in doubtful states for cam
paign purposes and to punish other
suites for voting the opposition politi
cal ticket, in all froker's days of
blackmailing bossism over New Yoik's
dens of vice no Idea ever entered his
head so Imperialistic In Its conception
nnd, sweep as this Idea of making a
few men under appointment from the
president supreme over the woild of
trade. The ordinary trust wouldn't
be a circumstance In comparison.
Yet this man Bryan preaches and
prates of liberty and freedom, and
poses as the relentless foe of Imperial
ism. Four years ago the Republican party
promised good times, while the Demo
cratic, party predicted panic times.
Republican promises wore redeemed.
Democratic prophecies were belled.
Voters todny will not be fooled.

By playing with lire we mean, hi Mr.
Bryan's case, uppeals to the spirit of
class prejudice and social discontent
Inherent In all societies, present under
all conditions, common to every age
and clime. We mean his attempt to
array tho 'man of smalt means
ngulnst the man of large means; his
endeavor to excite the Jealous envy of
the man eurnlng day's wages ngulnst
the man paid by tho weels, the month
or the year; his willingness to make
those who have little bellevo that the
way to get more Is to pull down others
more successful In life instead of ad
vising ull to work hard, be frugal,
exhibit patience and lift themselves,
up. We mean his association with
and moral indorsement of men like
Altgeld, the apostle far unurchlsm;
Tillmun, the profune advocate of the
shot gun and the bludgeon In the pre
vention of negro voting; and Rlchurd
Croker, the calloused'cohfessor to mer
cenary motives In hU conneotlon with
public affairs the personlllcatlon und
controlling spirit of the rottenest con
spiracy of public plunder n the an
nals of municipal misrule.
Bryan entered this campaign with
tho respect of nil, Ho will disappear
from It both it defeated and a dis
credited man. Four months ago the be
lief was widespread that he was brave,
consistent and sincere For the destruc
tion of that belief he has no one lo

It by his evasions; by his shifty plays
With paramount issues, a now one for
each audience; by his unmistakable
dfpcent to th piano of the charlatan,
tho mere Juggler with words, and
most of nil by his abject and uncon
ditional surrender to Richard Croker

name Implies. No Democratic candi

LABOR'S VOICE IS FOR ,
r-tlii LATEST notable accession to McKlnley and Itoosovelt Is Hon.
I John McBrlde, of Columbus, o editor of the Miner nnd Operator,
JL former president of the American Federation of Lnbor and of the
Miners' National Union. As n Democrat Mr. McBrldo served four,
years In the Ohio legislature, was the party candidate for secretary of state
of Ohio In 1SSG, and came within 12,000 votes of election, He was also Ohio
commissioner of lnbor statistics under Governor Campbell, and In the cam
paign of 1898 was chairman of tho labor bureau at Democratic National
headquarters In Chicago, Mr. McBrldo takes his stand for McKlnley In a let
ter to David Boss, llopubllcan candidate for congress in the Springfield (Ill.i
district. Tho following Is Mr. McBrlde's letter:
Columbus, O., October 23, 1900.
Hon. David Boss, Springfield, 111.:
My Dear noss Replying to yours of recent date, permit me to say: As'
the presidential campaign nears its close I frankly confess that n careful In
vestigation of the Interests Involved has led me to tho point of voting for
the rc-clcctlon of President McKlnley. I shall so vote.
My chief reason for doing this Is based upon a firm belief that Bryan's
election would hasten, It not cause at once, sweeping and disastrous results to
our commercial and Industrial Interests, bring suffering nnd sorrow Into hun
dreds and thousands of homes that are now fairly prosperous and happy.
The election of Bryan In 1898 would not have been followed by results such
as I now fear. At that time there were millions of idle and almost starving
men and women who earn their living by labor, but could find none to do at
any price; business, too, was stagnant and Industrial enterprise almost dead.
It would have been difficult; to make matters worse.
Now, however, with improved work and wages, our laboring pcopto nre
doing fairly well; business, transportation, mining and manufacturing bettor
than for years, foreign trade larger than evor before known, and tho money
question the bono of contention In 1896 settled beyond dispute for at least six
years. Tho average American capitalist Is easily frightened, nnd to disturb
capital now Is to unbalance trade, cripple credit, cause bankruptcy and
hasten disaster, which, I fear, will leave only wreck and ruin in its wake.
The paramount Issue in this campaign, as I view It, Is to stand by the ad
ministration and to lot well enough nlone.
While I nm opposed to imperlallsmand militarism, I recognize no danger
from either In this country; they nre phantoms in this campaign. Law by
Injunction and trusts nre more tangible subjects to deal with, yet a change In
the administration would afford no relief, but, as each of these evils has
friends and enemies In both Democratic and Republican parties, it Is evl-'
dent) that any legislation that will abolish, regulate or control must be se
cured, If at all, by votes from the Democrats and Republicans in both branch
es of congress. While these questions have a, political bearing, they are not
of a partisan order and no party has a patent right to either help or Injure
The law of Injunction, as applied to labor unions and labor leaders, was
first made an Instrument of oppression In 1894, under Cleveland's administra
tion, and since that time Democratic and Republican Judges have used it
with equal freedom and effect. In the last congress, the anti-injunction bill,
presented upon tho request of organized labor, was permitted to be pigeon
holed by the committee having It In charge without even a protest from
Democratic members, though their party had pledged Its support.
Imperialism may furnish material for campaign orators, but no sane man
believes that the Republican party or any other political party has enter
tained or dare express a desire for the establishment of a form of government
so repugnant to a people like ours, and at the same time expect; their votes, i
Imperialism, too, must find a foundation upon militarism, and as the mili
tary power of the nation depends upon a congress selected every two years by
the people, It must be evident' that the people have the power of redress when
needed. There are Democrats as well as Republicans who advocate an in
creased military force, and the most prominent and influential advocates are
General Miles and Admiral Dewey, both acknowledged Democrats.
The use of military in labor troubles can not be charged against Repub
lican administrations any more than Democratic ones.
In 1894 Grover Cleveland sent United States troops to Chicago against the
protest of the governor of the state and the mayor of the city. It Is a Demo
cratic governor of Idaho who demanded and has assumed responsibility for
the use of troops In the late labor trouble In the mining camps. It is only a
short time since the Democratic governor of Missouri sent state troops to St.
Louis to crush or overawe the striking street car men. I cite these, not be
cause they are exceptions, but merely samples of what labor has met from
Democratic administrations in New York, Maryland, West Virginia, Tennes
see, Kentucky and elsewhere.
It was a Republican administration that) reduced the standing army from
50,000 to 2j,000, and should an attempt be made to permanently increase the
regular army beyond that number it will not be made a party question, but
Democrats and Republicans will be recorded for or against the bill.
I left the Democratic party in 1W4 because of the issuing of bonds and
the use of the military against labor under Grover Cleveland. I returned to
the Democratic party In 1S9G because I preferred the double to the slnglo
standard of values.
The financial question has been eliminated from this campaign, and. to
my mind, all other questions being discussed are either ephemeral or politi
cal, rather than partisan in character, and to dispose of them In a manner
creditable to tho nation and profitable to the people will require patriotism,
good sense and business sagacity on the part of the national legislators,
rather than a division of party lines.
I voted for Samuel J. Tllden in 1376 and for every Democrntlo presidential
candidate since that time, but next month I shall vote for the re-election of
President McKlnley, because, as I believe, the best Interests of our country
and our people can be and will be subserved by his election. Sincerely yours,
THE BACE FOB CONGRESS.

from personal considerations thcie ran be no
doubt where tho interests of tlm voters of this
district lie In the preaent contest.
Now, personally, what la the ihoieo between
the two? Mr,. Conry is a lawer, a )ouug man
leccntly come to Kuaiiton, an able speaker, and
claimed by hit friends to be a brilliant expon
ent of Hlackstone. Hut lie has never held official
position, and Is absolutely detold ol experience.
There are fifty young Uwjers in the city about
whom fully as much might be said in favor ol
their candidacy as this man. Is It, not presump
tuous to heud such an unknown man to con
gress to look, after the vast Interests of th
Eleventh Pennsylvania distrlcjf Mr. Connell baa

thousands, and by reputation to ciery citizen
of the county, lie began as a driver boy and
by Industry and perseverance lie bai risen to
become the largest employer ot labor in the
county. He is identitled with more industries
than any two men in the district. Ills regard
for the iutcicsU of labor has been recently
shown by his indefatigable work in settling the
strike, and thus ghiug a greatly added impetus
to the industries u( the county.
Hut lie ia aNo an experienced man in Wash

and his labors'there arc too well known to need

he has stood by the achuinistiation, and helped

BRYAN A MONOPOLIST.
The protection which William J. Brjsn se
cured when he copyrighted his book is of an
extraordinary character. First. Hryan's mo
nopoly in the book Is not left to tho ordinary
protection of the law, hut is specially secured
through "government by injunction" the pre
ciaa thing which he and his party denounce.
If anyone should venture to Infringe on Bry
an's monopoly and reprint his book, an In
junction would uc clapped on the infringer
Manufacturers have no such protection as that.
In the second place, Bryan's protection is un
limited, whereas manufacturers arc only pro
tected up to a certain point. If a manufac
turer raises his prlco beyond tho level covered
by the tariff duty, the foreign article at once
conies in and competes against him.
Not so with Dryan'i copyrighted book. Let
him charge what he pleases, there is still no
competition. II can demand any price and tho

I am employed as saleslady In one of the largest department stores. After being
on my feet all day I am too tired to walk home, and get very little outdoor exercise.
For the past year and a half I was trooblecj with a bad attack ol dyspepsia and constipa
tion, earned, I suppose, by eating cold lunches. My blood was aUo out of order, for
which I had the close atmosphere of the store where I worked to blame; in a word, I
was "all run dawn." I used a number of blood remedies and regulators beside home
remedies and prescriptions of our family physician, but none did me much good, and I
felt no discouraged that life had little charm for me. About two month? ago I aa
induced by a lady friend, who has a similar position to mine and had much the same,
trouble, to try KIPANS TAUULES. I had but little faith in them at the start, but
tried them on the principle of " catching at straws." Their action was so gentle and
they did me so much good from the start that I was very much plcasecl and determined
to give them a thorough trial. I started taking four Tabules a clay one after each meal
and one at bedtime. I kept that up for three weeks and then took smaller doses taking
a half a Tabule after each meal and one upon going to bed, For the past two weeks I
have taken three a day one after dinner and !upper and one at bedtime, and cannot
remember the time when I felt belter than I have during the past month, and I have
RIPANS TABULES to thank for it. I can now eat a hearty meal and do not dread tho
after effects. I have recommended the Tabule-. to a number of my friends and am yet to
bear of their not giving great satisfaction, It does seem that almost every one needs them
occasionally, I always carry a carton of Ihcm in my pocket, and whenever any of tho
girls at the store, or in fact any friend, tells me that they feel out of sorts, I produce my
RIPANS TAUULES, and think I have made a great many friends for them, for once
used by a person in need of something of the kind they are sure to be sought after again.
