According to Ihc Brjanile wallers,
the United Mates is impoverished
and on the way to be ruined bj the
gold standard and the trusts. Half
the British war loan has just been
taken by this impoverisberl and
ruined country, whi'.b would have
gobbled the whole of it if it could
bnve cot it. This impoveiished and
ruined country has bo much money
to invest that even in the present
unparalleled expansion of business,
it can't find wajs euougb at home ot
calling dowa its profits. It has
money to lend to England, as it bad
money to lend to Russia; and it may
soon be drawing interest from all
ever the world.
The farmers can't get men enough
to harvest their crops. The railroads
can't get cars enough to carry the
fieigbt. The savings banks are so
wamped with deposits that they
"don't know where to invest them.
Yet the Bryan spouters of lamenta
tion are s urc that the country is being
impoverished and ruined by the

as tbey are in 1900. The Bryanites
bo were bowling about the value of
the bets as an election indicator In
189C, when the odds against BryaD
were only small, ought to be im
pressed by the figures this year. If
the narrow margin against Bryan
among the pool sellers of tour years
ago presaged a majority of 95
against Lim in the electoral college,
what size of a republican majority
do the immensely greater odds this
year portend.
There is giief and mourning and
lamentation ic the camp of Brjanism
-over the announcement that Mark
ll-tnna is not going to send any trust
fioney out West wherewith to buy
Branite voles. The Baker City Re
ptiiiicn thinks the chances are
sironnly in favor of the worshippers
of Bryan getting up indignation
meetings or going on a strike and
Tefuing to be Bryanites any more.
Maik it treating them as if they were
not worth buying. The San Fran Examiner credits Mark with
saying that the Pacific coast will get
no money because it has had more
than its i-hnre of McKinley prosperity.
Hut ht has prosperity to do with
Boanites?" aks the Republican. I
'It is . Mark Ilanna's barrel they
want. To think the Examiner
should iash all their hopes to the
ground in that way is enough to
uiNke them go off and join the
Bxers. Mark Ilanna's barrel! all
their hopes cling fondly to that.
That gone, the Bryanites have noth
4nij more to live for. Now many of
Uiciii ill wish thnt they had gone
to Cape Nome or Paris and get

would then be induced to furnish
iu. Oh, Maik! to think a cold
inier is criming on and you have
derided' not to buy Bryanites! The

People who talk of this country
backing out of free silver if it proves
dangerous, demonstalo their ignor
ance of the question. It would be a
case of damage once done could not
be undone. When a person loses
money through carelessness, or other
wise, it may be recovered or the loss
be made good in some way. When
a person, however, loses credit by
cheating, it is not easy to get it back.
Probably the only way is to go to a
ne land and start all over again.
Nations, however, cannot do that.
There is no way for them to bide
fro is the scorn and contempt of other
civilized nations.
Speaking of how the red shirts
look after the consent of the gov
erned in North Carolina, the Hartford
Times says: "They rotten-egg the
speakers, cackle like geese in concert
and put out the lights. If this
doesn't work they mount their horses
and ride through t:ie crowds, firing
off their weapons wildly." These
festive Bryanites, however, are in
favor of bestowing the sovereignly
of the Philippines upon the Tagal
bandits In the name of freedom of
man aud the declaration of inde
pendence. According to the Astoria News,
they were still packing salmon on
the AYushington side of the river as
late as last Thursday. And the
News, filled with burning zeal for
the "preservation of the fishing in
dustry," (as they all are down that
way) mildly excuses the violators of
the law on the Oregon side by saying
"It was meet that the cases against
the Oregon canners, arrested for il
legal fishing, should have been dis

in violation of the law after the sea
eon had closed and the cannerymen,
in eq ial violation of the law, con
tinued to receive the fish, a few
cannery men were placed under ar
rext and fined four dollars each.
"The ctnnerymen," we are told,
felt justified in operating as long as
the canneries on the Washington side
of the river were allowed to oper
ate," and the prosecuting attorney
tvidcntlv look the same view, for he
moved that the cases be dismissed on
te pament of costs. So the can
nerymen at last concluded to close
down, but as late as the middle of
the week apparently anybody that
wauled to fish was doing so without

in bis notification speech, "resting

An American officer writes from
the Philippines: ''To leave here
now would mean the death ot every
Filipino in the islands who has dared
to be friendly to the Americans."
But what care democrats for these
friendly Filipinos? They're only
niggers, and democrats never liked
niggers, nohow.
"The republican candidate for
governor of Minnesota, a steamboat
captain, has boiled down the Bryan
ile platform and presents this as the
residue: "Pull down the flag. Rip
the credit of the country up the
back. Get a bugaboo and call it
imperialism. Then stuff the people
full of chaff."
The Bryanites ore still grumbling
'fa-cause the betting fraternity do not
offer bigger odds than five to one on

Later on in the campaign perhaps
the margin on McKfaley will go op
to nx or eight to one. The canvass
is young yet. The odds against
.Bryan were never o great in 1806

statement, amount to $35,000 annu

The American producers pay

reason why this amount should not
be expended so that it may find its
way into Ametican pockets?
Among the ten thousand words of
Mr. Bryan's painfully wrought essay
on the theme that "republics can
have no subjects," tbese only are de
serving cf serious consideration, says
the New York Sun:
If elected I shall convene congress
in extraordinary session as soon as I
am inaugurated, and recommend an
immediate declaration of the nation's
purpose, first, to establish a stable
form of government in the Philip
pine islands, just as we are now es
tablishing a stable form of govern
ment in the island of Cuba; second,
to give independence to the rilipi
nos, just as we have promised to give
independence to the Cubans; third,
to protect the Filipinos from outside
interference while they work out
their destiny, just as we have pro
tected the republics of Central and
South America, and arc, Lby the
Monroe doctrine, pledged to protect
This is definite enough as a state
ment of intentions and a pledge of
action in case Mr. Bryan is elected
president. He will convene congress
in extraordinary session and use all
the power that a president can Jexett
to induce congress to withdraw the
flag of the United States from the
Philippine islands.
When Mr. Bryan pronounced these
words, did it occur to bimtbathe

The insurrection in Luzon has
found its mainstay in the encourage

the utterances of certain American
citizens here at bomb have afforded
to its leaders. Most of Aguinaldo's
sympathizers have been persons
without official responsibility, like
Atkinson and Garrison and Winslow.
A few, like Pettigrew, hold federal

ence on American opinion. But the
utterances of even tbese irresponsi

as Lawlon testified just before bis
own death, to speed the bullets Jthat

And now the man who', will be
president of the United States if the
democracy wins this election sends
to the insurgents his message of hope
and stimulus. "Keep up your fight,"
be says to Aguinaldo's Tagals.
"Keep on shootin down the men

If I am elected you will have won.'
In the maze of bis theoretical ar
gumentation and in the confusion of
bis rhetorical detail, did William J.
Bryan really understand how near
he was to treason? Did he foresee
the one direct, practical, murderous
effect of bis promise to the rebels in

THERE were ructions in the count-inr-house
of Tatterson & Dew
hurst. One or two junior clerks had
received a
"w-ijfginjr." and there was
feeling of worse to follow.
At last a small office boy entered
the clerk- office and said in, a shrill !
"Mr. Red bolt is to go to the gov
ernor t once."
There was a mischievous grin on the
young gentleman's face, as if he knew
what was coining, and most of the
others, delighted at their own escape,
chuckled, like many people h when
some one else is in trouble.
Joe Redbolt turned just a shade
paler when his name was called out,
as if he, too, anticipated serious
trouble, but he set his lips and stif
fened hi back, like a man who is go
ing to make the best of a bad job.
"GoodSby, Itetidie, dear!" said some
body, with an unpleasant sneer. "If
the governor gives you a rise, don't
forget to stand drinks "
"Keddie looks worried:" murmured
the cashier.
"Perhaps she has refused him after
all," remarked another.
A moment later he was in the pri
vate office.
Young Mr. Dewhurst, who had man
aged the business since the death of
his father, gave him a furtive look as
he entered, and then turned hurriedly
to a bundle of correspondence by his
side and selected a letter with an air
of malicious satisfaction.
The two men formed an odd con
trast. -They were of about the same
age 28 or perhaps 30 but it re
quired no great insight to perceive
the difference in their characters.
Kecl1olt was tall, straight-built and
frank-looking; his principal was
small, insignificant and obviously one
of nature's sneaks.
One could imagine Redbolt being
foolish, but never cowardly; one
could imagine Mr. Dewhurst being
sly, but never generous.
The interview was unusual; there
seemed to be something in the back
ground about which neither man
spoke. Mr. Dewhurst was clearly
master of the situation, and resolved
to use his power; his managing clerk
looked self-reliant, but perfectly re
spectful and polite.
The ball was opened by Mr. Dew
hurst unfolding a cantankerous com
plaint from an unimportant customer.
It was the merest trifle, and quite un
worthy of the occasion. Nevertheless,
Joe Redbolt was by no means sur
prised at the tone adopted. For some
time past the smallest opportunities
had been seized for fault-finding, and
he knew by instinct that the climax
had been reached,
"How do you account for this blun
der?" said Mr. Dewhurst suspi
His clerk gave "a simple, straightfor
ward explanation, which, to a reason
able man, would have been sufficient.
. Hut Mr. Dewhurst was not in a rea
sonable humor.
"Jt appears to me, then, that you
are not in any way to blame, Mr. Red
bolt?" he said cynically.
"I think not."
"You never make a mistake?"
"Xot very often."
"Who is to blame, then?"
There was a moment's silence, and
the two men looked into one another's
'."You are, sir," said Redbolt, re
spect fully. "I acted under your in
structions." This appeared to give the un
worthy little tyrant his opportunity.
"You are more than half imperti
nent!" he said roughly.
"I give you my word I didn't intend
to be so," said Redbolt, with perfect
good1 temper.
'Terhaps not, but I'm tired of it.
You forget your proper position, and
have crossed my will in several ways."
Mr. Redbolt colored rather pain
fully, and his principal continued.
with a smile of spiteful triumph:
"ion understand what I allude to?"
The clerk bowed slightly.
"Then I think you had better look
about for another situation."
"Shall we calculate the month from
last Mondny?" inquired Joe Redbolt,
in a perfectly even, matter-of-fact
"Eh. yes," said Mr. Dewhurst. "But
I won't ask you to continue your work
With that he pushed across the ta
ble a little pile of coins, which had
been counted out already, clear.'y
showing that he Intended from the
first to make use of the opportunity.
For the first time Joe Redbolt looked
angry. It was adding insult to in
jury to send him away adrift at a
moment's notice, as if he had dis
graced himself.
It was the more outrageous because
he was a distant connection of the
Dewhursts by blood. The two young
men had been for a short time at school
together. They hail entered the firm
together, and Redbolt had worked his
way up by sheer ability, under old
Mr. Dewhurst's eye, to a responsible

oped rapidly into daily insults, until
the morning, as we have seen, he had
found an excuse to cut ids former
school fellow adrift.
Joe Redbolt picked up the pile of
coins, counted them deliberately and
put them in his pocket.
"Now, Fred Dewhurst," he said
huskily, "we are no longer master and
man, so that I can say what I think.
Dewhurst looked rather alarmed
and drew a small silver bell nearer to
his side.
"Oh, don't be frightened!" said Joe,
with a smile of astonishment. "I'm
not groinir to thrash you! It wouldn't
be fair to uit a man your size!"
Mr. Dewhurst tried to sneer, but
only looked mightily relieved.
"I want to tell you what I think of
you," said Joe.
"Go on!" said1 Dewhurst, with
grin. "Seeing that you've had the
worst of it all through, I suppose
musn't mind a few spiteful words!"
"I want to tell you you're the mean

hurst, "that you'd even marry her

and, resisting the impulse to knock

with no prospect but that of com
mencing life again in some counting
house, and then suddenly he re
membered. Only two nights before
he had attended drill at the headquar
ters of his volunteer corps. The men
had been asked which of them wished
to join the C. I. V. for the front. He
thought of the glow that had burnt
through his veins, how he had longed
to offer himself, and had only been
prevented by his feeling of obliga
tion to his old friend's business. Now
he was free!
That settled it. Old England was in
need of help from men such ns he.
He was as sound as a bell in wind
and limb; he had done his turn at
volunteering and could shoot more
than a little.
Within half an hour his name was
entered as one of those who were
ready for service at the front, and he
was ordered to go before the doctor.
That gentleman laughed at him.
"If we get I.4D0 men as fit ns you
are," he said, "we shall do well!"
Huing successfully passed all thr
tests, and been duly enrolled. ns one
of the city of London imperial vol
unteer corps, he felt slightly easier
in his mind.
At last the final moment camp. He
had attended the service at St. Paul
and sung the national anthem until
he was hoarse. He had been slapped
on the back by hundreds of warm
hearted but heavy-lmi-dened citizens.
He had even fought his way success
fully through a mob of enthusiast ic
patriots all the way from Itunliill
Row to Nine Elms, where he was one
of the first (o arrive.
There stood the train waiting to

too, stood the long-suffering band, nnd
every minute groups of breathless,
excited men in khaki, who had also
fought their way through the crowd,
rushed onto the platform.
Of course it was all over. There
was nothing to be done but get into
the train and say good-by to old Lon
don for monthsperhaps forever.
Once more a gloomy sense of loneli
ness enme upon him. Everybody else
had a ehum or a relative to see him
