- SEPT. 16, 1896
There are many kinds of lies arid
a great variety of makers of lies.
One kind the lies of Populist Lewis
of Washington, for example are
easily detected, flayed and hung up
to dry. They do little harm, except
to their originator. Another kind
consists, of statements, harmless of
themselves, which when grafted ur on
prejudice or ignorance, develop into
the worst kind of falsehoods.
Mr. Bryan poses as an honorable
man; tut his speeches'are made up
of this kind of falsehoods; they are
neither declarations of principles or
facts, but inuendoes misleading
suggestions which are thrown out
for the purpose of carrying his au
diences away from a careful consid
eration of the questions in issue.
Thus he says: "A laboring man
buys a home, agreeing to pay for it
in installments. It is unjust lo com
pel him to pay for it in a medium of
exchange which is constantly appre
ciating?" He produces no figures
or facts to prove the inference he
wishes to be drawn; he does not
even declare it to be a fact that the
medium of exchange is appreciating
as compared with labor, because he
knows such a declaration is refuted
by reliable Statistics which show that
the price of labor in this country on
a gold basis increased 27 per cent
from 1870 to 1891, and 60.7 per
cent from 1860 to 1891 ; while prices
fell 24.1 per cent on an average
from 1870 to 1891.
Again he asks ""Why is it that in the
face of the constant decrease in the
circulation the Republican party has
made no provision whatever to sat
isfy the needs of the people ? If we
decrease the amount of money we
make dollars dearer and property
chtaper." He makes no assertion
that under a Republican administra
tion from 1873 to 1892 the circulate
ing medium did decrease, for he
knows that as a matter of tact the
per capita of money in circulation in
creased almost steadily from 1873 to
the close of Harrison's administra
tion, being 18.04 in 1873 and $24.44
Those who know nothing of the
figures are carried away with the so
called "oratory." But you can't
fool all" the people, nor a very con
siderable portion of them, all the
time. The time will come, and that
too soon, when the American people
will set Bryan aside as a very cheap
imitation of a statesman, if not an
Janus Hamilton Lewis the Popu
list candidate for governor, will, if
he keeps on lying, drive every hon
est man, and every man who wants
to be considered honesc, away from
his standard. In a recent public
speech' he slated that J. T. McCleary
had confessed that the statistics upon
which his famous anti-free -silver
speech was largely based, and from
which his figures were taken, were
fraudulent, forged and wholly mire
liable. A Republican telegraphed
to Mr. McCleary asking as to the
truth of the statement, and received
a reply that Lewis' statement was
absolutely false and unfounded ; that
the statistics used were the most re

liable known, and he had never at
any time stated that they were other
wise. Now Lewis has been claiming
that Hon. Geo. N. Aldridge of Texas,
another able advocate of sound
money, had changed his views and
declared for free coinage at 16 to 1.
A telegram to Aldridse brought the
reply that the story was absolutely
false, and that he had recently de
livered two speeches in Texas de
nouncing the midsummer day folly."
Lewis ought to do as most of the
Populist newspapers do confine his
lies to dead men who can't talk.
FORECASTING A RESULT.
A careful examination of the elec
toral vote giyes strong assurance of
the success of the Republican ticket.
In the following table if all the
doubtful states are added to the
Bryan column, he would still lack
four of a majority. "We believe
both Oregon and California will be
in ihe Republican column, though
we now place them doubtful:

"Money is a creain of law."
Bryan. Then why, in - the name of
humanity, enact 'assessment laws or
collect taxes? Wipe out the whole
system of revenue and create money
and relieve the poor, over burdened
taxpayers; go one step further, pay
off the debts of all; furnish every
man with a brown stone front and a
palace car run by special train and
make the world truly happy. Buy
all the gold in ihe world; convert it
into souvenir spoons, mementoes of
the beginning of the millcnium, and
present one to every voter. Thus
will the gold bug be un winged, and
we will join in a new song, "Praise
Bryan from whom all blessings flow."

Reduction in Railroad Fares.
As there will be numerous requests
for reduced rates on account of political
meetings daring the coming contest, it
has been decided tha in order to treat
all parties alike, a one fare rate will be
made by the O. R-& JT. Co. tor various
meetings of this character.
This of course is intended only for oc
casions where there is sufficient number
to justify a redaction in rates. This is
done so that there wil1 be no partiality
in favor of any one party.
