The average man enjoy* seeing n bluff
called ami beaten. That I* what has just
occurred In certain trust steel manufac
turing establishments at Joliet, 111. A
week or so ago two big plants, employ
ing 1.100 men closed down. The men were
Informed that the cause of the trouble was
the fear of Bryan's election. In the event
of Bryan's election, the managers said,
business would go to the door* and there
would be no market for the product* of
Ihe corporations. It w* plainly the pur
pose of the concern* lo Intimidate the men
Into voting for McKinley. H was hoped
that they could be made to believe that
Ihe filling of their dinner pails depended
ti|K>n llepubltcan success at the polls.
But the shut-down had precisely Ihe op
posite effect. The workers could not be
fooled. They forthwith began to talk
Democratic polities. They t ailed the bluff
of the trust. It wo* soon discovered that
the sentiment for Bryan wa* dally grow
ing stronger, while McKinley supporter*
were fast wavering ami capitulating Al
thl* juncture representatives of the Re
publican campaign managers visited the
managers of the steel mills and told them
that the suspension of operations must he
raised and buxines* resumed, or McKinley
would lo*e llllmtl*. And Immediately the
fear of Bryan In the mind* of the man
ager* disappeared They .announced ihat
work would be resumed next Monday, at
which time the thousand* of men will re
turn to their lunches and forges H may
be doubted, however, that the llryan tide
among them has been stemmed, The work
ingmen, having seen through the subter
fuge of closing the works for the purpose
of making i~.ldio.il capital for the trust
party, are pretty well disgusted. They
know that If the trust had been honestly
afraid of Ilryan. Il would hardly have tm
medhrlcly rescinded its action In closing
Ihe mills when It became apparent that
Bryan's chances wore Improving.
