The Times-Herald says: Threu hundred clubs, with 120,000 railroad men as members, are. already in. line 1'or McKInley and sound money- The nvoveimeat has developed into a mighty avalanche. From fifteen 10 • twenty hew clubs, are reported every day. Harry P, Robinson, of Chicago, the father of this rercmrlaible movement, Is conllUent there wJll be at least 1,000 clubs with more ttan 50.000 members before election day. He estimates •that the railroad men will prove their loyalty to the nation's liouor by -gh'ing 700,000 votes for a dollar worth 100 cent.*. • • The tremendous importance of this. Movement will be understood ..In the light of information which railroad .men throw on it. J:t is estimated that, there are nearly 1,000,000 railroad em- ployes In the country, of whom 800,000 are voters. In an article in tho North American Review for Mny, 1S03, Mr. Robinson pointed out the influence, which tli e railroad men might exercise on the affairs of the country if they were to unite solidly on any given policy. He called attention to the fact', that they were scattered tlirough-every State in the Union instead of being massed In small districts, ns the cool miners are, for Instance. Ho asserted that -In almost every State of the Union the railroad men are more than equal in number to the normal majority of the winning party 'and that the •the dominant men in this industry by massing their vote could carry a majority of the'States. Here are recent estimates of the railroad men in certain Western States which have been called "doubtful" by the political managers: Illinois 43,000' Indiana. 28,000 Wisconsin 25,000 •! Nebraska ., ' 23,000 Iowa 1 ...: 40,000< Michigan. 30,000 Minnesota. .25,000 Texas ...'. 40,000 Of the 320,000 members already enrolled ns members of railroad men's souml'hioncy clubs it is believed 40,000 •are Democrats. lit is thought this class of wage eairners is largely Democratic;" as a whole, but in. years past many of tljpm have not voted regularly because of the difficulties put in their way by the peculiar requirements of their call- Ing. Letters pouring In on Mr. Robinson show that they are enthusiastic this year and thoroughly n.wake to the Importance of tilio issue. There will be. a. determined effort among these sound money men to got put every vote, possible for their cause, and as the rail-,, road managers are practically unanimous for sound money it Is believed they, will do all .they possibly can to help the men. to get in their votes. The organization of railroad men..Is... non-partisan. It Is for self-protection, because the Democratic platform pror poses to cut their wages in two and Increase the cost of.living. The movement Is spreading witih such amazing rapidity that Mr. Robinson's rosy predictions have warrant in facts. The, first club"was formed nt Hammond,. Ind., .Tuly 27. by employes-'of the : Er|e: railroad. The second was organized Aug. 3 at Lincoln, Neb., th'o home ; of. Candidate Bryan, its members .being;, employed on the -Chicago, Burlington& Qulncy system west of the .Missouri, river. From that time reports of newr clubs came thick and*fast, first by.tw.os •and threes each day, then five-and six a diay, /and now as many ns twenty a. day. By Aug. 14 .twenty-nine clubs, had been organized with memberships 35 to 550, In .the next six days, sixty-, five clnbs sprang Into existence, and. the 100 mark was passed Aug. 24, ... A review of this remarkable growth,, shows that there was one club -A,iig.,-.l.. Aug. 24 there wore 100; Sept. 1 tho 200- mark' was passed; Sept 5 there were. 300. Yesterday's results are. '.a fair sample of the way the work Is going. The mails to noon brought reports. of ; Dhe organization of the following new clubs:.'Ctacinnatl, COO members; Oma-, ton, 000; Pla'ttsmouth,' .Neb., 287; Chi-. oago, 1CS; Tiffin, O., 30; Hopewell, O.,. 150; Indiana polls, 103; Toledo, O.. Council Bluffs,.la. . . • ... . : '. The Chicago club was formed by.emr, ployes of.the Pennsylvania lines, at Fifty-fifth street. There -art> about, a dozen such .clubs in the city. The..In- dlnnnpolis club Is the.second formed in , that city, the other having a member-, Ship'of 362. The "Toledo nnd Council Bluffs clubs did not report their, msm- berships. The two Nebraska, clubs., are both within about fifty miles of Mr,. Bryan's-home. ••-.• ••. ,£v< • The "clubs, in this movement are scat;, tered from Massachusetts to Gailfor;' Ola.

It, takes no elaborate argument to show that sucu a result would nien.n. i dlsnster to railroad employes. : Mr.' 'Robinson calls attention to the fact that the cheap dollars of the silver inen, ..\yould cut the wages of railroad iiKjn. i,|i two, and there would be no hope of a raise to "pay. lu many States the liajtjBS of transportation are limited by law,, and everywhere public scnti- mentjs.an all-powerful agency against any considerable advance Jn rates, cvcn-;i/C the, competition of the lines controlled -.by . law could not prevent it.
