In the sisterhood of nations the iiafcii la the ;inlt and the nation must legislate for Itself.

Coercing Money Lender* Denounced. :' The text of Mr. JJryan's speech WBF : a paragraph in a local paper quoting "a leading man of the town";(is saying: "If silver wln-8 this fall It will be on« of. the greatest disasters that ever befel the- farmers, I -have had tor over ten rears nearly J20.000 loaned in this country to farmers. .In many. Instances payments huve been met. -but for'a few years I have been compelled to extend the time,"and T A.TI willing- to do so under our present t)n«.nclarbo.sla; but If silver wins this fall I will do what every other man will do who has money out—dcmnnd Immediate payment—I admit I may lose Rome of the Interest, but I have at least three years id save myself, and during that time 1 will close in on every mortgage l-have." "My friends.".said Mr. .Bryan, "I want to denounce the\ money- lender who attempts to use his mortgages'to Intimidate American citizens and say that that man does not deserve to live In a land where men are"Yrqjp' and havo a right .to.liberty When you admit that It IB necessary to g-o to the money, lender, Stid obtain his ,con- «ent "before you can pass a law then you have passed from a democracy toaplutoc racy and liberty as we have understood it hns fled from this nation. I want you to understand that these men, knowln« that they cannot . appeal to reason, attempt to .appeal to force. These men knowing that their arguments do not appeal to Judgment attempt to appeal to the feara of men In this campaign, my friends, we have arrayed upotnst us every, enemy of society and tvery man who seeks to make slaves of thoso with whom he deals. I am glad they are not on our side. I am plad I havo not the support of a man who intends to foreclose his mortgages If men do not vote as he wants ithom to. I would rather remain a humble prl- vate citizen than to hold the most ex*. •Ited office In this, land If I had to re- cclvo my. commission from m£n who know us little about tho genius of our InstltUT- tlons as the money lender whose Janffuair*, I have quoted. My friends, this clipping, was sent to mo by a man who had always been a republican; a man who owed a mortgage of Jl.MO on a .farm which used to be worth $3,000, and who stated In his letter that under the gold standard ho expected to have to Blvc up his farm because under a Kold standard fanners' cannot pay their mortgages and pimply have to lose what they havo Invested and turn their land over to the man who loans hl» money and uses his mortgage to Intimidate American citizens. I say I received this clipping from a republic/in', and, my friends. It JB this attempt of the. moneyed aristocracy to take away the right of the people to self- government that Is driving, thoso men out of'thc republican party to Join with us In restoring the money of the constitution and putting,this,government back In the hands of the people where It.belongs." At Other I'oinU. Farmers and their families came'in from many miles round about to Niles to hear Mr. Bryan speak, and their wagons and carriages were seen at every fence corner in the town. The speech-making took place in a beautiful grove of trees in the high school grounds, where about 3,000 people had gathered. The nominee's remarks were cheered frequently. Dowagiac, the next stop, is not a large place, but with those who came from neighboring communities to augment the residents there an assemblage quite as large if not larger th.in that at lules was mustered around the platform from -which the nominee spoke. The MoKinley badges worn by some of the people in the crowd of several hundred who heard Mr. Bryan at Be- catur were larger and of a more pronounced yellow than any seen on the trip. Mr, Bryan made a short speech from the rear end of the train there. UlG SILVER KALLY. Bryan'i Hffttlv* City of Salem Hold* B Koniloff Demonstration.
