"VV ilii.im J. I'.ryan's dodging policy
Uuinj lLo presont campaign has
brought down on li is Lead a shower
of cmbarrasricg questions from time
to tine. Almost every republican
orator has attempted to pin him
down, but he has skipped lightly
away and given noserious or straight
forward answers to the questions
hurled at him. On bis return to
New York the other clay after a
campaigning tour, U. 8. Senator
Frye decided to prepare a review of
the salient issues of the campaign in
the form of an open letter to Mr.
Bryan, in which be said In part:
"You have constantly criticised
the course of he president in sup
pressing the insurrection id the Phil
ippines, yet yo.i know that the in
surrection had been actually begun
when the tieaty with Spain was rati
fied by democratic votes which were
cast for it by your advice, and that
by that very act you aided in placing
this responsibility on his shoulders.
"You criticise the size of the army.
Yet you know that conditions in the
Philippines were critical, and the
lives of our troops there in great
danger when a temporary increase
was asked by the president; and you
lso know that the act, which wa9
supported by democrats and repub
licans alike, is but a temporary one,
and itself provides that the additions
to the force shall terminate on July
1st of next year.
"You talk of buying the Filipinos
and of exteuding government over
new territory without the consent of
the governed, when you know that
every foot of territory west of the
Mississippi wns acquired by your
own part' in precisely the same way
and the people temporarily governed
by precisely the same methods, and
that the opportunities for local self
government, which have been offered
the Porto Kicans, are vasilj' better
than were given the inhabitants of
the Louisiana territoiy, Florida and
the territory obtained from Mexico.
"You talk about governing people
without their consent, yet you know
that your own patty is governing
millions of people in the .Southern
states without permitting them, a
voice in their local or national gov
ernment which the constitution and
laws guarantee them; and when the
matter is brought to your attention
3-ou have not one word of condemns
tion for it, but meet the issue with
evasion worthy only of the merest
Senator htye then shows up the
shallowness of Bryan's arguments on
the Sulu treaty and has this to say:
"You are constantly talking about
the so-called trusts as contributors
to the republican campaign fund,
when you know that the sworn testi
mony suVmitted to congress shows
that the sugar trust was a heavy
contributor to the democratic cam
paign fund and that the chairman of
your own national committee is the
head of the most complete monopoly
in the United States, the round cot
ton bale tiust, while Mr. Croker and
other leading democratic managers,
' who nie now supplying your party
with runfls, cngariizeil the most op
pressive ti list known to eople, the
Tammany ice trust.
"You su'd in M. Louis that under
the trust system the traveling men
will not l.o needed, yet yuu know
that investigations by the department
i,t lalior show th.it the so-called
triuts have incretsed instead of de
creased the r.i! timer of traveling men
and other employes, and that they
have incicaxtl and not reduced the
wages c f their workingmeii or sales
men; and you know from your con
stant traveling on the railroads that
(Lie number or traveling men now
employed, in wLat you consider an
era of trusts, is greater than ever
lefore, and that this is shown by (ho
.records of the tailways and their
sales of the class of tickets used by
"At Indianapolis you complained
that a republican president could
send a telegram of condolence when
a king dies, but when two republics
expire no republican sheds a tear,
referring of course to the South
Africal republics; yet you know that
the United Mates government did
more than any other nation on earth
to bring about a cessation of hostili
ties in South Africa; that it was the
only government to tender its good
offices as mediator, and that it was
impossible, under articles of The
Hague peace convention, for it to
do more. The telegram of condo
lence on the death of the Italian
king, to which you sneeringly allude,
requires no defense or explanation,
as you must know that international
courtesies of this kind are always
observed, and that the failure to
observe them would justly have sub
jected this nation to criticism."
Ilryan's assertion that so-called
trusts have advance ! prices is denied
by quotations from Bradsti eel's.
-The Spokesman-Review has said
that the surface indications point to
the re election of Piesideut McKin
ley. This will appear the more
clearly upon consideration of- the
electoral vote. The states of Ohio,
New Yoik, Connecticut, Illinois,
Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, New
Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania,
Rhode Island and Vermont arc
reasonably counted in advance 'by
the republicans. It would bo a sur
prise if either of them went for
Bryan. They have a combined
electoral vote of 171, or 53 short of
the required 224.
Into a doubtful column place Cul
ifornia, Delaware, Indiana, Kansas
Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Min
nesota, New Jersey, North Dakota
Washington, West Virginia and Wis
consin, with a combined electoral
vote of 111. Of this number 03
would elect McKinley, and it would
bo a political surprise if Bryan should
carry a majority of these states.
in other words, me chances seem
against Bryan's breaking into the
first column, and also against his
carrying a majority of the votes in
the second column. His one chance,
as has been said before, lies in the
possibility that the republican defee
tion in republican sirongbouia may
be greater than the republicans an
ticipale, and may extend also into
the doubtful states and states carried
four years ago by Bryan, but now
claimed by the republicans.
John McDonald, a Kansas journal
ist who is touiing Scotland, snja in a
letter to one of the papers of the
Sunflower state that he iccently went
into a store in a little Highland town
and inspected the goods displayed
for 8ale, finding among them the fol
lowing American products: Corn
flour, canned beef, canned peaches,
canned apricots, canned pcais, soap,
rolled oats, washboards, churns,
cheese, bams, flour, salmon, apples,
forks, hoes, axes, hammers, saws,
joiners' tools, braces and bits. "This
partial list of things used in a Scotch
mountain village," says Mr. McDon
ald, "will give some idea of the im
mense trade between the United
States and Great Britain."

groes who attempt to vote the

Three years ago this month the- Ne

editorial columns to a letter written bv
J. W. Johnson, of Lincoln, to V. J.
liryau. It was republished in the Ore

Annuel Dinieison, of this city. Tbe
letter is full of meat, and was in part a
To W. J. Bryan Dear Sir : You are
touring this state as a pretended friend
of Nebraska and cf Nebraska people. If
yon really desire the prosperity of Ne
braska p-jople, why do you deny the
prosperity that bus already come to them ?
Why do you seek to take away the new
hope that has come, and to turn back
the tide of confidence which is rising in
Ibe public niinj?
Tho business energy of the people is
awakened, and they are moving forward
in all lines of industry. Why do you
straddle yourself over the way and seek
to turn the procession back? If you had
been elected president instead of McKin
by, and if uuiler your administration a
general ttdvance iu farm prices and a
lenewal of industry had set in, and
these battered conditions bad been
especially conspicuous in Ohio as they
are today iu Nebraska, do yon think Mc
Kiuley would today be chasing from
town to town through the state tf Ohia
trvina to ditconraee the people and
organize them into opposition and dis
Can you consistently pose as a states
man and a patriot while acting in the
capacity of sn obstructionist, dogging
the heels of industry like a bushwhacker
who hanzs on the flank of an advancing
army? In "The Pilgrim's Progrees," by
John liunyan, there is a character whose
mission was similar to yours. He would
lurk by the wayeide where the pilgrims
were passing on their' way from the
City of Destruction, and, falling into
conversation with tbem, would seek to
turn them back. He would point out
that just ahead was tho Slough or
Despond, into whose mire they were
likely to sink. Beyond this slough wss
a mountain that was liable to fall upon
them. Beyond the mountain was a hill
of difficulty, and at the top was a narrow
pass, where hungry lions waited to
devour them. Beyond the lions was a
roaring dragon, from whose belly poured
out fire and smoke. . There was a ulant
waiting at the uonth of bis cave, there
was a dark valley where hobgoblins and
evil spirits hissed and fluttered, and if
any pilgrim, by dint of extraordinary
courage, succeeded in escaping all these
evils, still there was a deep, dark river
at the very end ol the way which never
could be crossed.
Mr. Bryan, you pose as a friend of
labor. Did any wordingman ever gut a
dollar of your monev? Did you ever
evolve a practical plan that gave any
laboringman employment? Labor wants
a practical friend, who can evolve a
practical plan, and then put it into
execution. Bncketaff thought of a brick
yard. He carried the thought into action,
and for many years gave employment to
labor in making brick. . 1,-jok down O
street, and you can see Bucketaff's brick,
bat what have you done for this city?
Where is your murk in this town?
You, Mr. Bryan, have gathered in the
last few months over 1100,000 from those
whom you designate as the "down
trodden and toiling masses," Not a
dollar of this money has found Us way
back into any poor man's pocket, and
not a cent of it is risked in any labor
employment industry. Ti.e result of yonr
connection will) the down-trodden masses
ls$l0J,000 out of their pockets into yours,
but not a dollar ont of vours into theirs.

, . . ,i 1 : L . :
today in quariers wen verseu in iuujric
affairs, that outside of the questions ol
indemnity, punishments, etc., now under
negotiations at Pekin, there are three
vital and far-reaching questions to be
First, the removal of the Empress
Dowager, personally and through the in
fluence of her advisers, from all partici
pation of the Chinese government.
Second, the creation of an indemnity
fund by the increase of China's customs
revenue, either by tbe payment of the
duties in gold instead of depreciated
silver, as at present, or else doubling the
present silver duties from 5 per cent to
10 per cent ad valorem, and
Third, the establishment of a minister

The demand for the retirement of the
Empress Dowager is said to result from
the conclusion now generally accepted
that the imperial government of China
was responsible for the Boxer uprising.
As the Empress Dowager was the ruling
authority of the imperial government
daring the uprising, this responsibility
is brought home directly to her. There
is understood to be no puipose, however,
to vieit upon her any personal punish'
ment or indignity, but merely (o so form
the reconstructed government as to ex
clude! her from all participation iu it. It
is deemed advisable for that reason that
she should remain permanently away
from Pekin, and that her advisers al
should be kept awav from the seat of
The plan of doubling China's customs
duties has risen from the need of rinding
a source to pay war indemnities, which
the various powers demand. It appears
however, that the increase of the dutieB
has heretofore been brought to the at
tention of the United States government
by Li Hung Chang. This was during his
vieit to Washington a few years ago
when it was represented that the 5 per
cent was fixed in 1858 by tho treaties
with the United States and other
countries, and was payablo in silver, at
which time silver was worth almost as
much as gold. But, with the changed
value between silver and gold, Id Hung
Chang pointed out that i;!nna s a per
cent duty in silver actually netted onlv
about 2'..' per cent, judged by tho pie
fading gold standard. The matter was
not pressed at that time.
China a present customs revenue are
eaid to be already pledged to meet tho
interest snd principal of Chinese loans
so that it will require some entitely new
source to meet the indemnities. I:i case
the enlarged dutiesnre determined upon,
it is understood that their collection will
be placed under the snnervision ot the
powers, nt least until the indemnities
