"To the public: On July 11th the Chi
cago Chronicle charged W. J. Bryan
with being a salaried employee of the
silver bonanza interests. On July Slst
at Madison, Wis., I read the editorial of
the Chronicle, and insisted that Mr.
Bryan owed it, as a duty to the Ameri
can people, to answer the charge. His
explicit denial appears in the press. I
stated in Nebraska that Mr. Bryan's de- "
nial would be accepted, and I would so
notify the country, which I take this
immediate and public manner of doing.
