Bryan a Trust Magnate.
The following disposition of cases was
made in Judge Boise’s court, which held i
its session on Monday and Tuesday of
Mr. Bryan is himself one of the great
est trust magnates the country has pro
duced. He secured the democratic pres
idential nomination in 1896, by which he
hoped to secure a monopoly of all demo
cratic votes. To this he added the pop
ulist and silver republican nomination,
and thus became the head and principal
beneficiary of a great political trust, and
he has used his power, just as every com
mercial trust does, by charging exorbi
tant prices for his product. This combi
nation in restraint of political trade, and
of political freedom of action, having
failed of its purpose in the general elec
tion of 1896, the head of the trust devot
ed his talents to the writing of a book
entitled “The First Battle.’’ He placed
it upon the market. At what figure ?
$3.50! ! Not because it was worth it,
but becuse he, as the head of a great
political trust, could get it At the same
time you could go to any department store
in the country and secure a volume of
the best literature in the English lan
guage for 50 cents. To-day, according to
Senator Dollivar, “The First Battle” can
be secured at the second-hand book
stores for 25 cents. Later, Mr Bryan
piade a tour of the country delivering
speeches for pay. He came to Oregon

ciation, and received $500 for it. The
association has been favored with scores
of infinitely better speeches from the
best talent on the American platform at
less than half ot that figure, but Mr. Bry
an had a monopoly in his particular line
and charged the full limit, without ref
erence to the quality of the goods. At
some of the fairs of the Mississippi val
ley it is said a single speech has brought
him as much as $2,500. The story that
his book and his speeches have brought
him $250,000, and that he has invested
the proceeds in government bonds is not
unreasonable, but whether true or false,
it is certain that there is not another
trust in the country that has, in the last
five years, made such an exorbitant ad
vance in the price of its products as Mr.
Bryan has in his. In a general sense his
action in this matter is perfectly legiti
mate, but one who has done this is dis
qualified from talking in a very high key
about monopoly or corporate greed.—C.

Hon. W. D. Fenton, a former demo
crat, of Portland, made a speech at the
Tabernacle in that city Saturday evening
which contained some of the severest yet
most logical scoring the democratic par
ty and its leader have received in Ore
gon. On the subject of expansion he
“The great events of the last two years
have brought back this old question.
And how do the democrats face it? Af
ter clamoring in congress that the rights
of belligerents be given the Cuban insur
gents, and trying to hurry the president
into war with headlong haste, war came
on us as a righteous war, after the ill-
fated 15th day of February, 1898, and
was recognized as such by all parties.
Dewey entered Manila bay, and later the
troops were sent to back up the navy.
Do we find Bryan protesting? No. Do
we find an alliance with Aguinaldc, who
had sold out his countrymen, his interests
in the Philippines for the traitor’s re
ward of $400,000? On the contrary oue
of the first acts of William McKinley was
to cable Dewey, ‘Make no alliance with
Aguinaldo or anyone else.’ And then we
have the spectacle of Bryan, this gallant
colonel with the great fear of militarism,
down on bis knees before tbe governor
of Nebraska, begging for a commission
in a volunteer regiment in the army of
the United States, which by his vote in
congress had been harassed so that the
soldiers of the army may not be paid ex
cept by special act of congress every two
“Now we come to the terms of peace
with the cession of the Spanish islands,
Cuba being left ’out on account of the
sentimental resolution of congress. Do
we find Bryan protesting? Na. Bryan
leaves Lincoln, Neb., hastens to Wash
ington, saying: ‘I will become an em
peror. I will annex these islands, ia.ooo
miles away, and take in 10,000,000 creat
ures at $2 a head. ’ By 10 democratic
votes he assists the ratification of the
treaty, and the islands became as much
a part of the United States as Alaska,
the Sandwich islands, New Mexico and
Arizona. And Bryan and his party have
equal responsibility in the ratification.
“And shall he be allowed to make po
litical capital from it? I say that he has
no right to stand up now and say he
didn’t think it was right He is estopped
from this by every consideration of right.
He is estopped by his previous acts from
charging that the republican party is
now the party of imperialism.
“Bryan proposes, if elected, to estab
lish a stable government in the Philip
pines. What has President McKinley
One Dollar If paid in advance, 8ingle numbers five cents.
and the army been trying to do for two
years, harassed by Bryan's opposition,
encouraging the Filipinos? Do McKin>
ley's attempts savor of imperialism? He
has incorporated into the scheme of gov
ernment to be applied to the Philippines
every guarantee of the bill of rights of
the constitution. What is good enough
for you and your kindred is good enough
for the Filipino. Is the brown man to
be deprived of liberty of conscience, of
trial by jury, of a right to participate in
his own affairs?
“Bryan has simply tried toescape from
the consequences of the resurrection of
former issues buried in the last election
by adopting the tactics of opposition, of
hypocrisy, to create new political issues,
lacking the patriotism, the loyalty, to
support the treaty, now the supreme law
of the land under the constitution. ’’
New Modal Club.
A new club has been formed in this
city to be known as the “McMinnville
Commercial Club.” It has engaged as
as its quarters the upper story of the new
Flynn building. The purpose of the or
ganization is the social, moral and intel
lectual improvement of its members.
The officers chosen are E. V. LittleGeld,
president; Leroy Lewis, vice president;
R. L. Conner, secretary and treasurer;
executive committee, W. L. Warren, M.
A. Baker, E. C. Apperson, W. S. Wade
and C. R. Hamblin.
Cards and billiards will constitute the
chief forms of amusement. Membership
is now being solicited and a roll of forty
seven names is secured. The club will
also include in its purpose tbe entertain
ment of new comers, visitors and strang
ers within the city.
City Ticket Named.
A citizens’ meeting was held at the
court house Saturday evening, which
named the following persons for city

It is understood the democrats will put
up a ticket. The action of the republicans
as a party is still in doubt. We think
the above ticket a pretty good one.
