pany. John E. Scarles Is president of
The chairman of the Democratic na
tfainal committee says his company '■*
btt a "large business concern," but
the Texans—and Texas Is a Democrat
ic state—think differently. It is charg-
ed that the Joxies-Searles combination
constitutes a conspiracy against law-
ful trade and fr<*e competition.
The American Cotton company is a
monopoly if there ever was one. Not
only Is it entrenched behind $7,000,000
«apital stock, but it U fortified by pat-
ents which exclude the possibility of
Nlcoll's Stock Exchange Handbook,
a recognized authority, says:
"The American Cotton company Is
a corporation which controls the pat-
ents for machinery and processes In
making round lap bales."
"Controls"—that word itself is sug-
gestive of the "octopus." It is a word
over which Mr., Bryan fumed in his
St. Louis denunciation of trusts.
Every cotton ginning plant in the
south must have one of the machines
manufactured by the American Cotton
company. They save time and money.
The cotton ginner must make his ar-
rangements with the Joncs-Searles
combination. It has exclusive posses-
sion of the field. The ginner must
come to the terms of the combination.
He can dial no place else. He cannot
even buy independence from this $7.-
The American Cotton company re-
fuses to sell its product. It leases its
machines. The manufacturer attaches
one to his plant and yearly pays trib-
ute to the American Cotton company.
So great are the profits of this combina-
tion that in the short lime the con-
cern has been iu existence Senator
Jones is said to have risen from the
estate of a comparatively poor mail
until he Is now regarded as a million-
aire. And the southern ginners con-

William Jennings Bryan in his de-
nunciation of trusts at St. Louis gave
a list of the great corporations of the
country. But he left out the American
Cotton company and the American Ice

ganizations he ignored. He ex-

vate monopolies into good monopoW-s

Therefore Mr. Bryan will not suc-
ceed as a trust smasher.
Even in making his division in j
monopolies, Mr. Bryan showed strong j
discrimination. He specified such con-
cerns as the Federal Steel company.
Yet this combination is only one of
several iron and steel companies in
the country. No one is forced to do I
business with the Federal Steel. There
are the American Steel & Wire com- |
pany, the Republic Iron & Steel com-
pany, the National Steel company, the
Carnegie company, and there are oth- |
But Mr. Bryan made his division in '
fa\or of the American Ice company,
which had absolute control over the j
prices in New York city, and which,
last spring, turned upon the poor of !
the tenement house districts and a ti < 1 -
ed to its wraith by the suffering of the
poverty-stricken; and Mr. Bryan also
makes his division In favor of a
concern which is so strongly fortified
that every cotton ginning plant in the

BLAINE S STORY ABOUT COIN-
James G. Blaine told a story that
he said was the best thing he got in
Iowa, where the greenback passion
flourished for some time, and was ex-
ploited with singular Intensity. A
financier of fantastic methods was
leaning back in his chair in a grocery
and talking, as he believed, conserva-
tively. He said:
"I do not agree to it that we want
something that is worthless to make
money out i:f. I think we ought to
make it out of g ild. Hut I agree with
you that it's the stamp that makes
the money—it's the United States
stamp, and it isn't anything else. 1
want gold for money, but there's no
use of having a great big chunk of
gold to make a twenty-dollar piece.
Just take a bit of a wafer of gold anu
put the stamp on it. the United State3
stamp for $20 and it is $20. It's gold
money, too. and it's got the American
eagle on it."
Second el'lzen Interposed, saying:
"I agree with you, only you don't go
far enough. You state the great prin-
ciple correctly. It ought to be applied
to other things. What's the use of
putting 19ft ro n s la a bTrel of flour?
I tell you if there isn't more than a
quart of flour and Ton put the stamp
on It, on the package of it, United
States stamp, with the American eagle,
that it is a barrel of flour—I'll swear
to It, it is a barrel of flour!"
Citizen No. 1 exclaimed: "But look
here, you are talking like a blank
blank fool'!"— Murat Halstead.
EMPLOYEES FAVOR M'KINLEY.
For the purpose of ascertaining the
political makeup of their "house,"
some of the employes of the firm of
Marshall Field & Co. ((wholesale de-
partment) had a paper circulated the
other dny asking for signatures to the
membership roll of a McKinley Com-
mercial Men's Club.
There .are approximately 1,000 voters
in Marshall Field & Co.'s wholesale
department. Tfle paper was passed
around with the consent of the man-
agement the house, but with no
"coercion" whatever from the man-
agement to sign or not to sign, the
test vote being purely an affair of the
employes, who wisheJ to secure only
voluntary expressions from all their
number. As a result of this test vote
the poll showed:

SILLY SEASON NOT ENDED.
That the summer silly season is not
yet over ian hardly account for the
continuance of something more than
humor in the Democratic campaigning
tactics this year. It was funny enough
to have Pitchfork Tillman, who has
openly advocated in the past the rul-
ing of South Carolina negroes without
their consent. Write the "consent of
the governed" plank at Kansas City
and for Van Wyek. the ice trust man
of New York to write the anti-trust
plank. But Tammany Hall, which
controlled the recent New York Demo-
cratic state conventin without any ap-
parently mirthful intent, has done still
more funny thing3. It has put up for
governor on an anti-expansion plat-
form. a man whose only public utter-
ance on the subject had been an en-
dorsement of President McKinley's ex-
pansion policy in the Philippines, it
inserted a plank in the platform de-
nouncing the ice trust, in which the
Tammany leaders were stockholders,
li Inserted a plank denouncing the
Raraapo $700,000,000 steal which Tam-
many leaders had planned and tried
to consummate for their own immoral

REASON FOR FARM PROSPER-
Between July 2, 1896, the date of Mr.
Bryan's first nomination for the presi-
dency. and July 5, 1900, the date of his
nomination this year, the price of ten
of the principal farm products in-
creased 45.8 per cent. There was not
a single decrease in price of these arti-
cles which Include wheat, corn, oats,
lard, mess pork, beef, cotton, wool, hay
Against this the Increase of the arti-
cles bought by farmers was only 19
per cent. There was an actual de-
crease in the price of sugar and tea,
and small increases in the price of
lice, sisal, iron, i.etroleum, tinplate,
leather, sugar and cotton cloth.
In every case a bushel of wheat will
buy more today than it would four
These statements are all official and
can be verified from the public records.
The assertions of the Democrats and
Mr. Bryan four years ago that Mc-
Kinley's election would bring misery,
have iu every case been disproved.
The farmers know the difference be-
tween distress and prosperity, and
they are not likely to vote to bring
about that old condition.
BRYAN'S PENSION RECORD.
"The next congress will have to
wrestle with one deficiency of $36,000,-
000. This is on account of pensions.
The appropriation for pensions for tha
next jear must lie not less than $150,-
(,'00,000. It is therefore easy arithme-
tic to perceive that the appropriation
that congress must make for pensions
at the next session must aggregate not
less than $186,000,000. This tremen-
dous sum would of itself be enough to
run a reasonable government. One
would not complain if it were an hon-
orable debt, because it was never earn-
ed by any act of patriotism or heroic
service. The government is held up
and despoiled of no mean portion of
this, and it seems helpless to defend
itself. One cannot help being curious
to know how many more years it will
take to exhaust the generation whlcr
feels itself injured by the war. It is
safe to say that never did a generation
display such longevity."—W. J. Bryan
in Omaha World-Herald, Nov., 1892.

Railroad I r. Iglits Down.
Railroad freights have decreased all
over the United States since the Mc-

misrule of the last Democratic presi-
dent. In 18!*I the average rate for
hauling one ton of freight one mile
(the ton-mile being a recognized unitl
was 86 cents. In 1898 it was 76 cents.
This has enabled producers to get their
goods cheaper to the marker than ever
More Freight Moving.
The railroads of the United States
carried 674,714,747 tons of freight In
1894 and 912,973,853 tons in 1898. That
is the difference between Democratic
depression and Republican prosperity.
