Grant. Harrison and MciKnley as Presidents Whose Ex perienee was Limited—Democracy Will Restore Prosperity LINCOLN. Oct. 2—Speaking tonight before the German Bryan Club of Lin coln. Win. J. Bryap answered the leaders that his experience In public life was not sufficient to Qualify him for the presidency. Mr. Bryan asked his audience "why this new bom xoal for experience?” He cited Abraham Lincoln. General Grant. Benjamin Harrison and Mr McKinley as having had no particular public experience previous to their nominations. Aa for Gov. Hughes, who he said had laid special empha sis on Mr. Taft's experience and qual ifications. he declared he had had but two year*’ experience aa governor of aa well qualified for the presidency as Mr. Taft.” Taking up the charge that he may not make w*ise appointments if elect ed to the presidency. Mr. Bryan Insist ed that the argument should not bo made by a republican because he said for the next two years nt the least the senate would be republican and pass upon all Important questions, thus sharing In the responsibility If any ob jectionable men are named. "I ar satisfied.” he said "that I can find such excellent menthut even a republican senate will not dare to reject them." Boquet for Honest Germans. "The German element In our popu lation.” continued Mr. Aryan, "la a very Important one. both In numbers and In the character of the man who have come to us fro mGermany. The Ger man language Is rich in philosophy oratory and In poetry, and the Ger country and the German strain In Wood has added to the energy, honesty and Importance of the composite Amer ican. I appreciate the support which Is given to the ticket by the German democrat* here and throughout the country.” Democracy and Business. After discussing a number of Issues, he said: "The republican argument that we hear so much of now Is that the dem ocratic success will disturb business. Our contention Is that democratic suc cess will restore prosperity. How can the republicans threaten us with t£ panto when a panto came under the present president and Is still upon us? "In some respects It la the most acute panic that we have ever had. and there was lesa In national condi tions to Justify It. That this panic still continues can be proved In many waya: First, by a number of men out o femployment. men anxious to work who are not able to find work to do. An effort has been made among those securing special privileges from the goxernment to answer this argument by starting up some of their mills In the closing days, hut the people can hardly be fooled by such transparent tricks. Cites Bank Statements. "The Saturday Evening Post of re cent date, contains some statements which show, according to the reports of the N>w York savings banka the number of accounts opened for the year ended on July 2. was 73.000 fewer tha nfor the year before, while the number of accounts closed was 43,000 greater than the year before. "The amount deposited was $35,000,- 000 lesa and the amount withdrawn 341.000.000 more. This shows a large shrinkage In the savings of the people of that state. "And now comes New York whole saler with Ihe statement that on July 32. the firm addressed a letter to the 'wholesale grocers, biscuit bakers, and confectioner* of the United States' asking for the figures showing trade conditions at that time as compared with six months before. The follow ing are the statements for the eastern states, southern states and the middle west: ”'Staple groceries. 10 per cent less southern states, and 15 per cent less 1 nthe western states.* The falling off In biscuit and bakers articles and In confectioners trade shows substantial ly the same per cent.
