THE POPULISTS' PREDICAMENT.
All is not serene in the camp of
the Populists. The nomination of
Bryan meets with great favor among
the rank and file of the party, since
Bryan is to all intents and purposes
a Populist. His indorsement, then,
by the St. Louis convention would
"be acceptable to many in the party.
Some of the leaders, however, are ob
jecting. To Peffer of Kansas such
a. course is especially offensive, and
there are others of like prominence
who entertain similar viewa.
The Populists are in an embarrass
ing position. Their stock in trade is
free silver, and they are pledged to
secure this realization by any
xBeans supposedly honorable. In
no other way can they do so much
for silver as by advocating the elec
tion of Bryan, who is silver clear
through. To refuse to indorse
Bryan would be laying the party
open to the charge of insincerity in
their advocacy of silver.
On the other hand, an indorse-
nient of Bry9n would be a compro
mise of the position which the Popu
lists have assumed towards the old
The corruption of other organiza
tions is a favorite theme for Popu
list orators to grow eloquent over.
They have declared that neither of
the great parties are fit to trust with
the government of the nation, and
that the only safe course to pursue is
to give the Populists an unlimited
lease of power. For them to in
dorse the nomination of Bryan would
be to turn back upon all previous
declarations and abandon one of the
chief tenants of their belief.
The Populist party is between the
devil and the sea. It would be bet
ter for the country if it should be
consumed by the one or swallowed
by the other.
The mistake of an engineer caused
the disaster near Logan, Nebraska,
where twenty-eight people were
killed and over fifty wounded.
Few callings in life carry with
them the responsibility like that
of the railroad engineer, and the
wonder is that there ar.e not more
accidents upon our great railways.
There seems.no excuse for the error
of the engineer ra this instance, and
whether his days be many or few, he
can be nothing else than a self-accused
destroyer of human life. The
engineer in the cab and the train
dispatcher in the office hold in their
hands the lives entrusted to them.
A traveler who in safety reaches his
journey's end little thinks of the care
and vigilance it has taken to aecom
plish such an end.
The ' free silver man admits that
the commercial ratio of silver to
gold is 32 to 1, and yet he wants the
metals coined at 16 to 1. Why not
carry the process farther and make
it 10 to 1, or 1 to 1. Legislation
can do as much towards establishing
one permanent ratio as another, and
if it is debased currency we want,
let us not stop half way.
