Mr. Bryan quoted liberally from
JeHersjQ and .JuCkaon. He touchel
on the leading issues of the cam
paign, but in a non-partisan way.
The aim, said he, of adrocates of
dillerent monetary systems is to se
cure that one wmch is best Icr the
greatest number of citizens. Men
differ as to which system will ac
complish that,' but all agree that the
Hyetem which will give a unit of
value of the least possible fluctua
tion is the best. In the end tba
prop!: of this country and even
tually the people of the world will

unit ot value most stable. In
reaching that decision selfbhcpps
must be taken into account. Sel
fishness is here to stay, but it is net
wholly disadvantageous, for it is the
manifestation of the inetincc of
ee 'f-1 -reservation.
Government should not only
ayoid abuses, but should protect the
weaker against the strong. A cv
jmiiient substitutes law for fcrce
rnd right for might. Governments
must restrain. Jtfferson said that
one of the most important duties of
a government vas to restrain one
set of citiz-ns from inuring the
other. Trusts v?re dpnounced as a
