IBs Foun;h street speech docs not contain a thought of any d-ascription: There Is nothing in lit but appeals 1.0 ignorance and prejudice. In his Riverside park speech, om'itlting the .appeals to the soldiers, 'tilie railroad men aad the com- mon'people, are found the following "Tljc gold s*anda.rd is not an Arncrl- c'am idea." PossMy mot, but why is it wrong on that account? Why does In'teruti- tiioim-l.agreement of -MseH make a good ? Why, if Jones nnd Smith contracted wiltl!

I ca.iiu-ot bu-ild tMs house mlou,e but ns a imntter of principle, I will build thu best -IIOHSO I am fllane?" prices mean teird times," says Mr. Bryan. Four years ago : h« sni/il tliait free -tirade was nc<xletl ibecause it would make a'alllilug prices. .. „ ": "I ask you to remember tta-t tlte Re. ubL'ic'.'i'ii par-by in Mils carui.xi-ipn floes not present a policy," says Mr. Bryan. Mr. Bryan *ki»ws that this is not time. The Republican party- ix>tnts to lllio prosperity of protection times ajicl says, "Lot the .money alone. Give us a protective tariff and restore prosperity. Ou tluis issue Xihc Chicago platform and Mr. Bryan are equally silent, Mr. Bryan atteroptis to Influence the ..i:Uvoa.<l employes.by'stating-''*hat the' reason the higher, officials favor sound money is because they know it is to their interest against- thnit of their employes. Hhiiis If a merchant saw his place of business burning up rtnd should shout to Ms employes on tlie top story to come down a* onoe it would be proof 'dint ho minted them to come clown so that he could impose on them. : . •Mr. Bryan spoke of tlie car coupling bill. He does not. state ifliat President Harrison first suggested it to. Ms mes-i sage a-nd that it received the Republican support. Nor does 'he stintte that Senator Watson, whom' lie -now Ignores inrtrcxVuced tlie .bill and denoira'Ced Democrats for opposing. A .great fraud is "Billy Bryan." "Our platform declares dn favor of nrWtraidion of differences between, railroads 'and their employes," says Mr. Bryan. -, MJ-. Bryan has made thils statement before. Probably DO- one has .called Ills nitrtwratioin to tile 'fact that titiail plank in tlie Republican platform and Is not in the Chicago platform; Mr. Bryan announces a now financial proposition, in his* acceptance speech in Now York -lie stated that silver wonM rise to gold at 16 to l,.an<] be ^-ortli .fl.29 per ounce. Now he says: "I believe tlhat uind-er fr«e coinage a silver dollar will be ns good as the „.._ dollta.r, whetlher it is coined or. melted here or nnj-wtoere in tlie world, TJion, you say, If 13ie silver dollar Is -as good as a gold dollar, h<rsv Is-that " _ to help tlhe people In this coun- itry ? >My f nlonds, when -we have silver •as gold as standard money you stop the rise dn the purctoaslne power of an ounce of gold and bring jit down to (.he place from whloli Jit started, w-h'On legiistatioin puit'the value iipon Hho gold dollar, yet the . pureliasiiig rf a silver dollar and gold dol- not be as groat as the piircb-as- : ing'power.of tlhe gold dollar Is today." ' Thus silver Is-tbTlsetotihego'ld va'nie '• bv gold dropping to the sliver value. TMs is a queer -way for silver to rise.: Biit whait will make gold drop he does not s.'iy. . "My friends, there is no end to the gold standard. Our opponents some- tiroes say, 'suppose that deroonetlza- tlon was 'wnom-g.' shall we do:aooth«r wi-ong by restoring silver? My -friends •Ohe evils of demonetization have not yet ended." ,, „_ what If demonetization was an. erJl and the evil has not.ended 1 / How does -Vtiait make two wrong's a right? How does flhait Justify bringing gold | down to fifty-cent silver? The only: rwisoniiible .proposition l«,,"Stop:where- we are. Coin sHver-at 32 to 1." Thus tie weakness of every statement is shown. No space Is wasted on /tlhc demagogy surrouading each of these staitemeafts.

THE NECESSARIES OF LIFE, EVERY KIND OF BUSIN3«S WILL BOOM AGAIN.—Plharos editorial, March 12, 1896. A grent many Republicans were condemning The Journal today for its wild statements about tlie Bryan- demonstration. The.pnper is welcome to all the glory it can get out-of Its misrepresentations,—Pharos. Ah! Here is'a statemeui. ol fact at lust. Now Svc 'wiill have some fun. Who were the Repu-blJca-ns and !n what respect did Tlie Journal misrepresent? It ga.ve Mr. Bryan's speech m f,ull, and gave the best report of a demonstration over made by a Logansport paper. WJiy, the Pharos wouldn't even announce Mr, Ma-gee's meeting! : According to the Pharos one of the transparencies read: "Our Granaries Are Full, Our Pockets Are "Empty." That is what President Buchanan said in 1S5T In -his message to Congress. Ami yet that was under a Democratic administration, and : under free ' coinage,.:Is it posstb'ie'any number of voi- ers can be so grossly deceived? Another transparency read: "Sixteen to One Bryan Will Bo The Next President." This is a genuine Popocrat statement. The betting is two to one, on McKlnley. . • ; Tlie special correspondent of the Chicago Chronicle, speaking of yesterday's, "•demonstration, says: "In" no place since -his campaign first began- has Mr. Brj-an receivetl a more liearty welcome than he received today at -Logansport."—Pharos. . . •If this was his bdst meeting according, to population, some one has been lying Mr*'Bryan -has come and gone and in his coming and going Injured his cause. His speeches in cold, type more than offset any possible gain his magnetism may iiave secured. There is nothing to them. They are 'empty -and devoid of fact or-'argument. They appeal.to prejudice, attempt to array the larger ciassejs against the.lesser elates, ai?^ in every way disclose the demagogue: The honest free' silverites will look in, vain in his speeches for any fact or argument to sustain them. : There, is one striking difference bej tweeii Bryan and Coxey. Bryan as ; d candidate Is able to-travel .by train) while Coxey -had to go horseback.. Otherwise'the resemblance Is striking.! Both are insanely egotistical.. Both depend upon fanaticism. Botli evade! argument and fact. Those who gazed! on Mr. Bryan's face saw its weakness-! They read-the-mlngled hy-pocrisy and: deceit in. its lines. Coxey -had large! audiences,' 'tout, they .indicated curiosity only. , No one really thinks that the voters of-Gas's county will give a plurality for free silver at 1C to.1" when, the market ratio is 32 to 1. Every, reader of history knows that the struggle has been to make the government ratio conform to the market ratio, 'If the government had to change from 15 to 1 to 1C to i to meet the market changes, how Is It ;golng to; establish bimetallism and keep it going when the ratio Is 32 to 1? , Cue of the striking features of .the day was ex-Postmaster.

And what confidence can anyone place in their political pretensions? The' demonstration yesterday was spontaneous.—Pharos. It seemed to be all the way through. RediareHanawalt's fireworks were certainly so. They went off all at once and iRedflro shot up an alley. No one seemd to be,at th« : ;nead of the thing. That would be a jreat way to run a govermrien't' \ • * If, as Mr. Bryan says, the Republican party draws -tflie bad men from the Democratic ranks,'"it Is hard to umder- ridand-Woiv tihe apotloss 'Mr. Bryan forced htoself to so long join .with the • "ba'd men" In, Uhedr wileKedness, oven allowing foimself to be classed as a -lender.

Top Much Rally for the Democratic Councilmen. Tlio city council was billed to meet in regular session Wednesday night, .but the- attractions of the "grand torchlight parade" .proved- stronger than- the call of duty, and none of the Democratic members were present. As: Mr. Kinney was out on his run. to Chicago, a quorum was lacking, and no business could ;be attended to. The .meeting was called to order, the roll was called, and "no quorum" being announced by Clerk Winters, Mayor McKee adjourned the meeting until lasi n>ight, when it was supposed that Dr. Habtery, Mr. Graff, Mr. Woll and Mr. •Dykeman - would have time to attend. .',,.When time came to caliche meeting to order, there was still a lack of members for a quorum, Mr. Graff and Dr. Hattery not leaving recovered from the effects of tile' Bryan celebration, and three of the Republican members having gone oa the excursion to Canton. There was no business attended to. therefore, and there can. be no business done until the time for tne next regular meeting. PERSONAL. WILSON TONJGHT. * Hon. John R.
