truly aald to be quite familiar to the
people of Europe and tbe British colon
lea. Tba propriety of eatabllablng
poatal aarlnica banka became the sub
jct of discussion In England aa early
aa 1807. Every objectlou to auch ue
of the postortice facilities urged In thla
country was vlgoroualy pressed In the
long-continued Ulacuaalon of tbe subject
For over fifty year private Baring
Institutions waged bitter opposition to
the growing aenttiiient in favor of postal
aavlngs banks, but notwithstanding
aueh opposition In IVil an act of Par
liament wax parsed entitled "An act
to grant additional facilities for de
positing small aavlngs with the security
of the government for the due repay
ment thereof." That the alarm of pri
vate institution was ill founded Is
amply proven by the recorded fact that
the private savings bunks increased
their capital by more than ten millions.

lowing the establishment of postal aav
That tbe postal savings Institutions
proved successful Is satisfactorily at
tested by the fact that no backward
step has ever been taken lu England on
this subject and by the farther fact
that in rapid succession the lead or
England was taken by other countries.
The primary purpose of these Insti
tutions is to encourage thrltt ami a
saving disposition among the people of
small means by placing at their dis
posal in every part of the country
ready facilities for the depositing of
amall sums, with absolute assurance of
repayment on demand with a low rate
of interest on a limited aggregate
Postal Saving Bank Needed.
In certain parts of our country sav
ings Institutions are sufficiently numer
ous to accommodate the people, but
auch areas are quite limited, being con
fined to New England and New York.
It is alleged that by reason of the num
ber and location of savings banks there
is one savings account to every two of
the population of New England, where
as in all the country outside New En
gland and New York the average is
only one savings account to every 157
of the population. Taking such figures
to be approximately correct and recog
nizing the fact that the people of all
sections of this country are pretty
much the same In habits, inclinations,
and purposes, It must be obvious to the
most casual observer that the people
of the South, the Middle West, and the
West do not save their earnings aa do
those of New England from the mere
want of secure places In which deposits
may be made.
To those who feel inclined to balleve
that the establishment of postal Bar
ings depositories will involve an ele
ment of paternalism it seems quite suf
ficient to suggest that the machinery of
the Postoffiee Department is now In ex
istence and will continue to exist with-'
out diminution of expense whether
auch depositories are created or not
and that the establishment of these
depositories for the benefit of the
people will not involve one farthing of
loss to the Post-OfBce Department, but
will probably, on the contrary, prore
More than self-sustaining. Very alight
computation will clearly demonstrate
that the postal aarlngs depositors can
not burden the Post-Offlc Department
with any additional deficiency.
If I am elected President, I shall
urge upon Congress, with every hope
of success, that a law be passad requir
ing a filing in a Federal office of a
statement of the contributions reealved
by committees and candidates in elec
tions for members of Congress and la
such other elections as are constitu
tionally within tha control of Congress.

Can't Dissffect the Farmers.
The failure of Bryan's desicratn st-
empts to curry favor wltlrthe farmers
is illustrated by the manner lu which
he was received at Crookstmi, Minn.
According to Congressman llalvor Stev
enson the event went off us follows:
"Rryan'a speech at Crookstou was a
great disappointment. Ho actually lost
ground there for Democracy. Thous
ands of people were there to hear him,
and waited till ten o'clock in the even
ing before he appeared. The address
was a narrow appeal to farmers, a
harangue, trying to prejudice them
against Republicanism. It didn't take
at all. Only once was there the slight
est symptom of applause. He spoke to
a silent, disappointed audience."

In the great battle of 181 Ml the Re
publican party again stood for the
maintenance of the Integrity of the na

duced by a great Industrial depression,
and against the mosK sophistical argu

tained a campaign of education among
the wage-earners and the farmers,

defeat of this second financial heresy
