Nearly every speaker in the State

has made one or more speeches in

Mr. Bryan could havo presented it
in a more forcible manner. He
proved by facts and figures that the
demonetization of silver was the causo
of present depression in all lines of
business and that its restoration to
its former rights and function as a
money metal was the only remedy
for financial relief, lie showed that
the Peoples Party had pressed this
question to the front and made other
parties quit straddling on this im

Let no one underrate, the signih-

thy of a painter's genius continually
come and go. Just now we paused
for a moment at some wayside sta
tion. All that could be seen of the
village was a few liqlits twinkling
against tue gloom ot ihe surround

dawn; but, respectiog bis need of

complete silence. At breakfatt a
group of pretty women entered the
car with trth rose for Mrs. Bryan,
and then the hushed concourse
found voice in a gathering roar.
The broad square adjoining the rail
way was impassac.
l he trees at Jacksonville bore hu
man fruit, and the telegraph poles
supported clusters of men as flowers
grow on the cactus. Mr. Bryan s
voice wasanible to the limit of the
crowd. A local paper put on the

Certainly this is a man of men.
There it no need for me to draw
any conclusions from this receptien
at the Lake City. But no one can
deny that there was manifested in
Chicago to day a remarkable lack of
apathy regarding Mr. Bryan.

Should the election be in any way
very close it is quite possible that it

even forty-eight hour, after the

districts keep den until G, and with
a covernor, a legislature, and county
