by using bread made
from our whole wheat
flour. It is made from
the whole wheat berry
except the out side hull,
or bran, which is a woody
substance, irritating and
indigestible. Bread made
from this flour is not so
white as that made from
the pale white roller flour,
but it is far superior for
food as it contains all the
gluten, germ, and oily
matter of the wheat and
is much sweeter than

that I was the most earnest advocate of

state convention. This may be so, but
know that I was not so earnest and loud

the convention tried to call me down.

'Mr- Kelly asks me many questions
that have been answered hundreds of
times, and if he had the disposition to
look at and examine the arguments and
claims of the equal coinage of silver advo'
cates, he would not be wholly carried
away in admiration of the Golden Oulf.
The paper containing the kelly letter is
not at hand, but I endorse the answer
you gave to his questions. Where would
the cheap dollar "get off at?" he asks.
Let me tell him that cheap silver and
dear gold would get off when W.J. Bryan
got on, and there can be no doubt of it
unless the gold bugs try to hold the
country down as they are now trying to
hold the voters down.

number of dollars I should have got. '
Mr. Kelly asserts that Bryrn is not a
democrat. Well, if he is satisfied with
Palmer's democratic record I and all
other democrats can be well pleased with
Bryan's record.. But there is more in
the approaching election than whether
gold shall be declared king and every
thing else its vassal, whether gold shall
go up and everything else go down.
The issue is, shall American manhood
prevail or shall it be coerced by the
almighty gold, power? The words of
Washington are just as true now as when
uttered. Eternal vigilanceis the only price
of liberty. There is no way of judging
the future but by the past, and if our
country prospered for over eighty years
under free coinage, I feel more safe to
risk it than to risk McKinley, Hanna and
the trusts and combines that are sure to
rob the people.
Mr. Kelly says Bryan is an anarchist
and his free silver talk is rot. If Mr.
Kelly could lay aside thoBe gold rimed
spectacles and read what McKinley, Sher
man, Carlisle and other able statesmen
and financiers have said in favor of silver,
he might call it rot, but we believe it
was common sense. Hanna would give
a well filled sack for anything that Bryan
has said that favored anarchy. When
he was deprived of the freedom of speech
by those 500 college hoodlums, aristo
cratic sons of goldbug sires, he did not
try to excite any ill feeling.
In Mr. Kelly's departure from us I
hope he will not try to take the honored
name of our party with him. But when
Bryan is president and the silver wings
of prosperity have again been spread
over our fair land, we will see him back
again under the flag of a new democracy
with that broad and pleasant smile on
his face. ' ,

attempt to disprove my statement that
the fat pig or beef of to-day will purchase
just as much for the farmer as the pig or
beef of 25 years ago; as this may be
monotonous to you let me propound a few
question on another lino.

Tongue and others for standing squarely
on the St. Louis platform, and in the
next breath abuse sound-money demo
crats because they don't stand on the
Chicago platform? In other words, they
abuse democrats because they do bolt
and abuse republicans because they d'm't
bolt. This is somewhat perplexing to
the undersigned. Will you kindly re
concile the incongruity?
2d. The Bryan leaders say that when
a convention is held in due form, and a
maioritv adoDt a ohttform and nominate
a ticket, the minority should give the
same loyal support. By what authority
then does a handful of democrats in
Oregon remove the name of Mr. Sewall
from the ticket? Again am I perplexed.
"Do I wake or am I dreaming?" If the
silverite8 can take Mr. Sewall off the
ticket, why can't the gold bugs take Mr.
Bryan off? If one wing of the party
twists the tail, why should not the other
wing flout the head? If the silver men
monkey with the tail of the ticket why

they have put up a ticket that they .
know does not stand a ghost of a chance
to be elected, in order that they may
assist the republican ticket. The re
publicans recognize this. The Oregonian,
which reeks with abusive lies against
Bryan and his followers, is extremely
frien dly to, and pats on the back, the
gold democrats, or, as Bob Ingersall calls
them, the republican "decoy ducks."

s one of them, the electoral vote here
going to Bryan and Watson. The pure-'
ly populist electoral vote is published as
74, and this is the total number that
Watson will secure if the free silver
democrats carry the states they
anticipate they will. The "handful
of democrats" that took Mr. Sewall off
the ticket were the state central com
mittee, but there is not the slightest
reason why Mr. Kelly and a few more
gold democrats can't take Mr. Bryan off
their ticket and put Mr. McKinley on,
as they virtually will on election day.
Were it not for the machinations of the
kind republicans and gold democrats,
who have made Watson believe that to
vindicate his principles,he must stay on
the electoral ticket at all hazards, it is
very likely that the silver democratic
vote throughout the union would be
cast for Bryan and Sewall only. In fact,
the gold democrats have monkeyed both
with the head and tail of the silver
democratic ticket as much as they could
in order to defeat it, for they would much
prefer to see McKinley elected instead

yonr silver doctrines, but what caught

he is. Can you tell me?
