Where slionld •we look for wisdom in financial affairs f to the hankers of New York. London, Paris. Merlin, or to Bryan and Governor JIaskell of Oklahoma?' Issues Past and Gone. In '!)(! Bryan injected himself and his issue of Hi to 1, embellished with his ''cross of gold,' 1 into the great national nrena, split the Democratic, party and the Prohibition party wide open, slightly fractured the Republican party, convulsed the nation and came near riding triumphantly into the White House. Bryan made his Hi to 1 not only pnra- jnonnt but. it became the most tremendous issue since thy Civil war. In IStOU Bryan was again in control of the Democratic party, bringing his "Hi to I with him, but it had become stale as an issue and would no longer serve as paramount. But Bryan was oi|iml to tlie emergency, he, had discovered a new issue which loomed large upon his vision, and he brought, if triumphantly with him. He was opposed to colonization by the United States of foreign peoples, opposed to monarchy! lie stood for civil liberty for all peoples! He was opposed to imperialism! Yes, that was the chosen work, the slogan portending victory! But Bryan did not get so near the White .House! this time, although he had brought two fairly good sized issues with him. ]n !1004. Ilryan was shy on issues. The old ones had been repudiated by the people!, 1 have no to carry Taft. lie is level-headed, consistent, dependable. Me lias be-t! nied. We know what he would do, wli.'it he and his administration would str/nel for, and that, under his direction the country would move forward along present lines. What Can We Look for From Bryan? But, not so in the case of Bryan. His ideas, his viewpoints, his conclusions, are' ever changing; not like Mie moon's phases, for they are known; but no one knows what Bryan would think or say or do or what sort of a cre-w he would bring in to man the big ship. Waiting the Result. There are thousands of business men and business enterprises waiting the* decision of November lid. If the news flashed over the wires on the night of November 3 is, "Taft elected," the morning sun of November 4 would find thousands upon 'liousands of men all over the land, with renewed confidence, renewed courage, instructing, ordering. clearing the way for the new movement of prosperity. But, if it could lie possible and the news should no me. 1 , ''Bryan elected,' 1 most of those waiting thousands would say: "Is'o; I'll wait. We don't know what he'll do. We can't tell a thing about what's going to happen." The man who thinks it would make no difference which one is elected, or thinks we would have better times or better conditions under Bryan than under Taft is not wise on these things. the 1 Peerless •would not serve, tine <me>" hist his job. In the preseiit campaign, Bryan has <|uite a biine-h e)f issues: ''Hhall the people rule 1 ," government guarantee of all hank deposits, iiniforin rates e>f interest in all state's, put all trust-made goeuls em the free lists. What Caused the Panic of 1907? The- panie of 1007 was the inevitable result lit' the ten years of the contimi- eius McKinley-Koosevelt. prosperity from November, fsOli, to November," 1006. The panie of l.SO.'!, which was in den-eland's se-coiid term, and was caused by the; law, then existing, compel'ing the government, to purchase a large riiiioiint eif silver every month, and stacking it in the; government vaults when we; had no use for it exeept to hold up the price of silver for the exclusive benefit of the silver mine owners (which law was repealed under Cleveland and for which he deserves much crpeji.t), ane] the fftor among business men as to the results of tile operation of a new tariff on elemo- erntic lines. Hard times contimie-d eluring the remainder of Cleveland's see-.ond term, mid, in tho e-ampaign of '!)(), with Bryan and his e-o-worke-rs preae-hiag Hi to 1, the wheels of industry e-ame to nearly a lull stop. Those were very hare'! times. McKinley Restored Confidence. I mmediate-Iy after the election of Mc- Kinle-y, with confidence' rest.oreel, came•new i-e)iirage and ne-w hope. 1 and the bus, iiiess e>f the country began to move- forward; slowly at first but. gradually increasing in force- and volume, until in ICOMMUNICATKII] A Ticklish Tariff, a Ticklish monetary System, and the Grinning Monkeys. Is the free-trade Dingley tut 1 iff responsible for tbe present industrial panic; responsible for nn overproduction, (underconsumption), and several milliem workers being out of employment? Was tbe high-tariff Wilson-Clormiiu ^j]) responsible fejr the tinconsumcd surplus products of 18!)!?, and the consequent industrial paniei, wbcu that surplus of goods WHS piled up under a free-trade McKiuloy tariff bill? If the Wilson bill hnd anything to do with the panic of 18!);!, then the Dingley bill is the cause of the panic e>f-li)08, now on. Tariff has little to do with panics. They "just happened so." Don't you Democrats "monkey with the taiiff;" you mo not UP enough on tariff. That bottle of -T'Op'") so fill lack iif understanding," as to their economic intciests. lint that would bo n revolution.

Plasterer getting .-(is ;r day; wife buying $20 hat; beefsteaks ever}' day, turkey often; investing in oil stocks, gold mining stocks; town lots laid out away into the country; extravagance the rid >, frugality the exception;- speculation gone wild. Bankers are, as u rule, the most conservative of men, but there were bankers who speculated on their own an.' on other people's money, and when .-'ouie Kinks, managed by speculators, had to close, people got, scared, and .all ban'-s, nearly all of them sound, found it, wse to (lose in order to protect the bnsint'n .intere-sts of the country. Then the people "sat up and took notice," wondered what was the matter, some thought the banks were to blame for it all! It high time for the bankers tit go slow in paying out the coin. Kven they had gone fully far rnemgh with the tide. Such conditions could not last. The (dump had to come-. Prices of real estate, of rentals, of building materials, of houeshold go.nlH, wage rates, nearly everything, too high--far beyond real values. The exaggerated prosperity, the 1 to our infant industries, has long since curdled, and our "puny" trusts ure really distressed, and anxiously looking for foreign markets wherein they may vemiit up some of the co- iigu luted conglomeration. Keep bunds otf, they will soon choke to death. Tho tariff is a bugaboei. II's high, low, jack and the game. It's (.be game of our musters, and they rake in the; peit. Your poor jacks. The orange growers play for high tariff on oranges, the railroDds trump with higher freight rates, and are the emly winners. You poor consumers. The growers turn spades, the railroads wear diamonds and tbe consumers receive clubs. "Don't monkey with the minis." W»s the late lliumoial panic of 1007 caused by any monkeying with our monetary system? any money laws changed or new ones enacted? It jtifit "happened so."
