IOWA CROWDS GREET BRYAN CEDAR RAPIDS V Iowa, Oct. 6.—"I present myself as an example of one who has outlived the venomous attacks of his opponents. You heard opponents, me called a demagogue twelve years ago. You saw them bury me and you ] heard them chant their songs over my grave, and now they have to explain why It happened that I was not dead." With all the ferver that he could muster up, W. J. Bryan, facing a vast i asemblage In the Chautatiqua audl j torlum betwen Tama and Toleda In . this state today delivered himself of this utterance. At no time during the ] present campaign has he spoken so j earnestly or with such vigor. His remark followed a bitter denunciation I VOTE FOR SHEPHERD VOTE FOR SHEPHERD IF YOU VOTE FOR BRYAN. It now looks very much aa tho.igh the Eighth Congressional district would give Wm. J. Bryan a majority in November. The northern part of the district will be strongly for the Nebraskan. Word comes from the coast counties that Bryan will receive a tremendous vote from Independen 1 Republicans. There Is reason to believe that the hit; majorities in the extreme southern end of the district will be overturned. The people want Bryan and popular rule, and even the gerrymandered Eighth district will fall into line. But Bryan without a House of Representatives will be a barren victory. Therefore, every man who is going to vote for Bryan ought to support Shepherd as well. For Shepherd will be for Bryan's administration. His opponent will be against it, The Republican nominee Is particularly an offensive partisan. He Is a man of the Cannon stripe, so mu.-h so that he attracted ihe favorable attention of the stand pat Speaker. Mr. Smith Is an apostle of high tariff. II,. opposes the reform in the abuse of Injunctions. Republican rule, if it has the brand, Is right with him. He knows no ere-d but party. Thousands of independent citizens heliev..- iu Bryan, and will vote for Bryan. Make the victory worth while. Give Bryan a Bryan sympathizer and supporter in Congress. VOTE FOR W. C. SHEPHERD.
