Sept "a.—Trailing in the path taken by Bryan yesferda^ the Taft special train covered long distances in ISastern South Dakota today, reaching estem Iowa tonight. He made fen speeches today. A monster meeting here was the climax of a successful day which links tocethcr South Dakota and Iowa. Incidehtally there has been an opportunity to com pare Bryan and Taft crowds.

Apparently, the .Mitcliell audience, easily |.'».uoo. was an Inspiration to Mr- Taft. for he made the most, logi cal an.l nmst effective spee<-h of hia •our. Before Mr. Taft had hei-n speaking (Ive iiiinui>n< it became apparent that thi- crowd want.'d him to "po alter' Bryan, and as he was in' good voice he did not shrink from the task. "That's right, .soak him." call •d several men. Speaking of Mr. Bryan's government ownership of railroad declaration on his return from the trip amund the world. Mr. Taft said. His friends said his view has been broadened and he's coming homo safe and sane. That made Mr. Bryan sevi- sitive and he rofijtos it as a sland- or. There was another wave of onfhii siasm when .Mr. Taft said: "If Mr. Bryan is parent, son and heir of the Roosevelt rolicjos it is unfortunate that the man most res ponsilile for those iwilicios can recognize neither the ancestry nor the heir­ ship."

He did not call your attention to the fact that corn wa.-; at twenty-one cents, and oats at ten cents; nor .lid he dwell on the fact that after the Democratic parry, under his leadership, had brought about such a condition of affairs, thai then in order to help us all out of difficulty he propfised a method Dy which we should repudiate half onr debts and in that way stagger back to prosperity.

After, brief preliminary remarks Ihe 6hla speaker started out with a comparl. son of the two presidential cnndidatea Wininiu H. Taft nnd William J. Bryan. "The former has contributed to thn uphiilldinc of the .American nation," said ho. •both at homo and abroad^ br his wlsilom. abllily nnd diplomacy aa nn adniinisirafor. .Mr. Taft is better •quipped for the presidential ^.optea .i. ban a>-.> one yet chosen for that ftigh oosition. both by exiH«rience and in' the rinalitles of an executive oflScer." 1 Dn the other hand. Mr. Bryan has proven hiro.self. however unobjeclion- afile his character and ,however exalted his patrioti.-sm may be. a theorist. Every one of his predictions upon creat national fpiostions has prov-. en wrong and his theories, if adopted, would prove destructive to the whole country. His candidacy would not bo po.ssible except for the conditlcMiS , of the times. This era is characterized i>y feverish activity and .nnpar- illoloii crowth in material wealth. Mr. Bryan can be justly termed "The Apostle of Discontent.' He" has greater fa- • eility than any other one of our public men in thi.s i)oriod in appealing to the elements of society. 'The record of the two parties shows tho .same contrast. In 1892 the Democrats declared for the destruction of our protective tariff 8y»- - tetn. .Not only were their theories ' wronr. resulted: a depression of untold st -verity lasted until IKNT when .M<-Kinlej was inaugurated -. •IS president, and tho Dingley bill was passed.

The r.^siwmsibility of making appro" pflaf ions nmst be met j in the same manner that a case is decided byr a judge. He said, however, that Mr. Scoff had been a constant advocate of the itnprovement of the Kaw rlrer- and had thade all possible arguments In its favor. Your homo congressman is -quite fa_miliar with the situation." said Mr. Burton."and the committee will give the most careful consideration to tlie demands of this locality for rlyer iih- provements.
