had amemhled to hear him
The three day’* tour is regarded by Mr.

He charged the Republican party with

was anew e*|>erlence for that party, fot
never before In ll* history had the partv
failed to take a position In favor of a re
public struggling for liberty The secret
of (he prea nt attitude was, Mr. Bryan
.aid, the fear that If this country should
take a position favorable to the Boers,
the British parliament might declare for
The Peace Treaty.
In this speech Mr. Rryan discussed more
fully than at any tlnv before, the charge
that he had secured the reitth'sHon of thp
peace treaty with Spain. On this qu*w lon
he rt si:
"My Irtend*. I want to rail your atten
tion to on argument that th Republican
party set ms more fond of making than It
doe* of making any argument In defense
of Imperialism The main argument iliat
1 have been hearing lately In defense of
Imperialism Is that I helped to ratify the
treaty. Republicans give me too much
cr<dlt when they say I secured the rati
fication of the treaty. 1 have not .-et
found a single senator who has publicly
declared that he voted for the treaty be
es tse I want,*! him to, but B*naior Wel
lington has eatd that he voted for the
tr- ity because the President k*d him
to, end promised that the Philippines
should not be held permanently. If the
treaty was ratified, so that If you attempt
to prove that I am responsible for_ the
trealty you cannot do It, but you can prove
by Senator Wellington that the treaty
would not have been ratified but for the
promise of your Pveatdent. Bui I will say
that If the KcpubllrMn party will not as
sume the responsibility for the ratification
of the treaty, I will do It myself. (Great
applause.) I favored the ratification of
the treaty. I was not a senator and
did not have a vote I do not know that
my voice Influenced one single vote,
but I am willing to waive all that, and I
am willing to assume the responsibility
for the ratification of the treaty; hut.
Republicans, you must assume the re
sponsibility for the making of the treaty
and for everything that baa happened
since that treaty was ratified. That
treaty might hava given independence to
the Filipinos when It gave Independence
to the Cuban!. I believe that It should
have given Independence to them when
It gave Independence to the Cubans and
If. when It was made through the action
of the President, the treaty had given
Indepedenro lo the Filipinos as It waa In
dr pendence to the Cubans, not one drop
of American 'blood would have been shed
In the Philippine Island* from that time
to this. (Applause.)
"You ask who la responslhle for the
shedding of American blood In the Phil
ippine* and 1 aay that thae party l* re
sponsible for the shedding of blond that
was responsible for a treaty that made free
men of Cuban# and tried to make vassals
of the Filipinos (Oreet appsuse). When
that treaty came to the Senate |i had to
be met and thare were three things that
might ba done Flrat. the treaty could ha
ranted second. It could be amended If
there were vote# enough In favor of the
amendment, third. It could be rejected, It
pould not be amended because there were
not vote* enough, and If any in

rd that promised itidef* ndenc* to the Fili

were compelled to either accept the treaty
or reject It. What did a rejection of the
tre.ty man* ft meant one of two thing*
either the Pr**tdent would have to call
the new Henate together, which wa* over
whelmingly Republican, and then e pro
a ratification from the new Senate, or
#!*• he would have had to appoint anew
< ommlnHnn to make anew treaty If It
had been rejected If on the fourth day
of February he had called the new Senate
together on the fourth day of March and
had the treaty ratified by the new Sen
ate. then the delay would have done no
good But iwippoee he had appointed a

The following are extracts from Gov
“IB ISM Mr. Bryan Insisted that 'plu
tocracy waw one one side and Democracy
on the other' tspeech of Oct. Hi and that
If he was heuisn 'the wage worker could
not prosper ' Well, e* a matter of fact,
the wage worker during the past four
years has prospered as never before; and
the same 1* true of all our clttxrn*. On
B*pi. Ik of that year Mr Bryan aald; 'lf
we were defeated In this campaign there
la nothing before the people hut four
years more of hard time* and greater ag
itation.' That statement carries with It
Its own reply. Have the last four years
been easier or harder lhan the three yfin
preceding? You know well enough that
they have been Infinitely better; and It
Is the Republican party which has restor
ed prosperity, for It ha* secured the (m
--dltlon* which gave free play lo enterprise
ami thrift. Mr Bryan continued In the
same speech: 'Do you think w# have
drained the cup of sorrow to ita dregs?
No, my friends, you cannot set a limit
to the present hard times ' But. as a
matter of fact they did ret a limit, for the
limit was not as soon as Mr. Bryan's de
feat was secured; and the limit would lie
instantly removed If he were now elec'-
ed. We would all return at once Into the
very condition from which the elec.ton of
President McKinley rescued us four yeer*
"11l the same speech Mr. Bryan said:
'Business men .omplaln that bualneas con
dition* are bad. I warn them that these
cut-dltlons cannot be Improved by follow
ing up the |edicts* Of the Republican (ar
ty. Well, let business men answer wheth
er lhat warning has or has not been uetl
tlrd VVh.it do you think of business con
ditions now a* compared with four year*
ago? • •
,Tke Dollar and the Man.
“We have been hearing a good deal re
cently of Mr. Bryan's statement that he
wanted 'to put the man la-fore the dollar
and not the dollar before the man.' There
are certain conditions to which such a
statement might apply; bin It cannot
possibly he compared with Mr. Bryan's
other statement of Bept. 19, pt 9, in which
he denrouneed the gold dollar as a 'rob
ber' dollar. one statement means Jusl
ns much aa the oilier and no more. In
stead of bothering about whether the man
I* ahead of the dollar or the dollar Is
ahead of the man. or whether toe gold
dollar Is a 'robber'—whatever that may
mean—or anything else preposterous, let
u* fix our attention on the fact that the
polley followed for the last three years
has resulted In bringing the man urn!
the dollar together. That I* what a man
really wants whether h* la behind of In
front of the dollar. He warns to get
hold of a dollar, and not forty-eight
cent*. When a man con get hold of a
dollar, he I* Its master: and when he
cannot get hold of It, then he cannot
master It At present we give the wage
worker work and we provide that he I*
paid full value for his work. That !a the
only practical way to bring the man and
the dollar together on term* which will
give the man the advantage, and the
fact of having actually carried ou the
policy which secured this, of having don*
the deed* which produced these condi
tions. la worth to the laboring man ten
thousand times more than all the fine
phrases that can ever be utterly! aa to
some wholly Imaginary precedence of po
sition between the man and (he dollar he
earn*. • • •

"ftomeilme* Mr Bryan would go into
more specific prophecy In his Madison
Bquare Garden speech he Insla'e.l that

standard would he liable lo loee their de

Indefinitely, would have in withdraw their
deposits In order lo pay living expense*

positors. a* against 5095 000 in the year
when Mr. Bryan spoke, and the amount
of their deposits had Increased by MB.-
000.000. Evidently Mr. Bryan did not make
a happy shot when he prophesied that
If the gold standard continued the deposit
ors would tore their deposits, or would
have to withdraw them
t "Again, In hla speaen at New Haven,
he dwelt upon the fact that If the gold
Manriard continued the number of fall- j
urea among business men would Increase
Well. In ldR. a* compared to IRK. the
number of failures had shrunk from over
U.ONO to less than lo.twi. and the M*bUtt!‘

"I have shown you how little Mr Bry
an’s utterance* 111 the past have squared
with the facts, whether he was dealing

to-day whin he and the makers of th*

difficult to seriously argue either question
I* that so far as I know there is no man
In the t’nlted Ht.iles who believes In eith
