President McKinley made the treaty, and Mr. Bryan, when its defeat was aaured. came to Washington anal saved it These two great political leaders, bet , ecu whom you are to take yona choice, are equally responsible for everything that has happened ao far. Waa the treaty became the law of the land, the public faith was pledged to pay $20,1 000.000 for sovereignty over the Philippine Islands, and that Congress, and not th people, should dispone of them hereafter. It became the constitutional duty of the President, until Congress BhoulJ act, or declare otherwise, to reduce them to order nnd submission. 'Plie Supreme Court of the Pnited States so held loag ago. The only difference up. .to this point between President McKinley and Mr, Bryan is that President McKinley believed he waa doing right, belonged to a party w hich had alw ays been, aa he himself had been, the champion of political liberty, in the past, and ia right on all of the other nuestious that are at stake in the ,s ming election, and is fit to be trusted with all uew question that shall arise. On the other hand, Mr. Bryan thought the whole transaction wrong, makes some thiii and frivolous excuses for his conduct, and the party with whom be acts: and tha men who surround hlm and will MiiTinnid him as his counselors are in, n w ho have been the op clients o right isuess, equality and civil liberty alwnis iu (he past, are wjong on all the other great question that are al stake in the present election, and are not. iu my Judgment, to he trusted with new questions, however importaut or vital, that are lo come up in the future. In the matter of imperialism there has been little pr.ictieal difference between. President McKinley and Mr. Bryan in the pus. There will he little practical difference iu the future. Mr. Pryau does not even promise to use hia power as executive and I'ointnander-ia-chief in calling our troops from the Philippines. Ha only promises to call Congress together. He knows very well he cannot command even the strength of his o-wu party to undo the mischief which seventeen of his own followers in the Senate, uthis own instance, wrought when they ratified the treBty Messrs.

I the most importaat issue hef,e-e us at the present moment is whether m;r domestic affairs are to be thrown into confiu.iou and vxposed to disaster.

In my judgment he ought to have made his fight at the time when tbe treaty with Spain wag before the Senate. He should have upheld the handi of such dissenting Republicans as Senator Hoar, and he should have opposed t the bitter end the principle of buying for- en peoples without their consent and in ,ie midst nf a war for isdependphce on their part.

It is hopelehs, even if the Democrats get a tie, or even a majority in the Senate, to expect them to accomplish anything in behalf of tbe independence of the Philippine Islands. In ldd you regarded Mr. Bryan's campaign aa u "pussionate crusade of dishonor." You said Its success would bring with it not only adveralty. but disgrace. Wonld its success not bring disgrace now? Mr. Bryan said at Topeka that It he were elected the free coinage of sllvsr should be accomplished before another presidential election. Secretary Gage ssys he can lawfully accomplish It by executive power alone. Whether Mr. Gage is right in hia construction of the powers of the I'resident under . existing Isw, I will not undertake te say. But I will undertake to ssy that Mr. Bryan will not hesitate to use that power if he has the great authority of Mr. Gage for Its lawfulness.

But I ' mar believe he mesas bustles ia-th matter of tbe free coinage of silver, la tha tatter of free trade, and In his purpose -te reconstruct the Supreme Court. He means bad business He means business wtolch will overthrow prosperity and embarrass manufacture; which will reduce wages and destroy credit; which will debauch the currency and render the standard of value uncertain; which will impair the obligation of contracts and the value of savings; which will hurt our credit and break our faith.
