Whether one issue or another is really paramount does not depend on the expressions of com mittees or conventions, hut on tin- way the common people look at the facts. There once was a famous Irish physician who was wont to boast tthat his patient "died cured" of the disease it was his specialty to treat, but it made no serious difference to the patient. When the pople have passed sentence on the wild and dangerous financial doctrine of Mr Hryan's party it will be small comfort to know that its "paramount" malady was anti imperialism. Futile as the declaration is. is equally illogh al. for iii picking out free silver ahum from the p.atfoitn of ' !vn; for spoeitic dm laration Mr lirvau shows what relative iinportain . he attaches to ir.

And they did mote; they went to voting the republican ticket again There are two things that till a man's soul with hope and joy and contentment. One is wotk. ami the otlu r is voting the republican ticKet. The people of Kansas made up their minds to do both, and at onca became happy, jrosperous and contented. The man who says oi thinks that the republi inn party is not the direct cause of prosperity and plenty in Kansas is too dull Hiid too blind io wane? time cn. o LETTEp OF ACCEPTANCE. .. Now that the national conventions have been held ajid the tickets nomi nated. interest centers on President McKinley's letter accepting the nomination. No one expects anything new or original from Bryan, but Mr. McKinley's letter will hold untold influence on the campaign. The way to victory for the republican party lies so plainly in view that the managers of the campaign will not miss it if they rightly understand the nature of the transaction in which flie American people are about to engage. Truth and safety must be opposed to error and danger. Appealed to with absolute candor and straightforward truth telling on behalf of President Me-. Klnley. the people will respond with a great majority vote of confidence. ,i x .. .,.: idank Th ' " ' '' ' K.u.-.i- '.: .Ion: ii.ii mio!

In fad. the law is nioihdeil on the la w s pas ei to gov ei n ( nose territories after their annexation, with tnoililii ;i-lions giving I'orto Khans a larger voice in heir government than the people of the earlier annexations received It is no answer to this historic fact to say that Louisiana and Florida subse(iintly obtained a larger measure of self government. The question raised lv the platform is concerning the first step in governing Porto Kico. compared with previous territories. Opinions, right or wrong, on other points are no excuse for falsehood on this. And the democratic platform is deliberately false on this. Florida and Louisiana were both taxed without representation. They were both ruled without as much voice iii their own affairs as I'orto Kim has in it.. Their people were both denied personal guarantees of the constitution. In Louisiana tin-constitution right of trial by jury was abridged and in Florida tin writ of habeas corpus was contemptuously disregarded by the ivil governor. Will Mr. Bryan please consider his false charge made in this plaform and explain it without jugglery? BRYAN WILL PORCH IT. The historian of the future should not fail to take note of the relative merits of the front porch and the rear platform as disclosed in their influence on political history.

Now. by his return of money holdings and credits, he Is the largest taxpayer in the city of Lincoln. Not many months ago the cry of a labor famine AVits very general. Now nearly all the factories employing hundreds of thousands more men than were employed in 1896 are running full time. There never has been a time when the labor of the country was so fully employed at so good wages as it has been during the years IV.tS lM'li and thus far m limit. In all the greater industries wages have advanced betvwen I". and fjj per cent.

The value of live stock in Mr. Hryan's own state has in creased CO per cent since 1895. The prices of all the farm products, except wheat, have advanced, as a comparison of the quotations wil show.
