“After my speech in Memphis on May

fundamentalists, there was some talk
among fundamentalists manifesting
their interest in this ease, ami I was
asked whether I would be willing to as
sist in the prosecution. I said I would
if the fudameutnlists desired it.
"I left that night for Pittsburgh via j
Chicago. At Pittsburgh I received n tele
igram from the Fundamentalists’ Coun
cil. asking me if I would represent them
in the prosecution. I answered that with
the consent of the I-aw Department of
the State of Tennessee. I would be pleas
ed to assist, without compensation and

THE CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNE
WILLIAM J. BRYAN
Monroe Journal. I
The death of Mr. Bryan is a shook
to the Country and he will probably be
missed by more people than any man in
the country who might have died. No
man, not oven Roosevelt, had so great
a personal following or a strong follow
ing through so many years.
The Journal numbered itself among
these admirers of Mr. Bryan who, though
not following his judgment in many re
spects, gave unalloyed respect to ,his
many good qualities, to his wonderful
personality, to his honesty of purpose, to
iiis devotion to his own idea's and the
public welfare, to his tenacity of pur
pose. and to his utter frankness and
straightforwardness in mil his <-areer. |
He was a man of the utmost candor, a
man of great natural dignity, good huinor, |
benevolence, and unquestioned sincerity
and loyalty in all his undertakings.
Having all these qualities, it always
seemed a matter of regret to us that he
should not have been endowed yet a
little further and thereby become a man
of permanent achievement. This is
said, not in a spirit of depreciation, for
there can be no depreciation of a man
who gives fully and freely of all that he
has, but for the purpose of concluding,
if. possible, why it was that a man of
so much talent and with the devotion of
so tremendous a following seemed never
to have made any progress from the
point at which lie started. Mr. Bryan
was never a better orator, a stronger
leader, a better student or nearer ap
proached statesmanship, than the day
when, at the age of 36, he swept a Demo
cratic convention off its feet and became
the unquestioned leader of a party.
To Mr. Bryan's integrity, his devotion,
his loyalty, his unaffected sincerity, and
to his wonderful gifts as an orator, we
give full and unstinted admiration, and
his devotion to what he conceived the
general welfare lias never been ques- !
tioned ill our mind. The secret of his ■
career ieeins to be that lie was solely I
a political evangelist. For crying in
the wilderness in behalf of a great cause
he was unexcelled, and he reached his
maximum in his first campaign because
he was able in that campaign to make
himself the voiee of a great cause. The
cause for which he then stood was soon
relatively attained and he was not able
thereafter to attach himself to another
, conspicuous one.
In 1896 the country was at the cul
mination of an era w'.iieh had to end.
Poverty and hardships among the mases
of the people tat that ttme had reached
a crisis which everything.
The old line leaders and politicians re
garded it as a storm that must blow over
and let things stand essentially as they
were. The great mass of the people
were inarticulate and helpless under
what would now be unbelievable hard;
ship. Bryan’s silver voice trumpeted
their misery to the world as it had never
been done before. Silver was but a
symbol, merely a string of 'words upon
which the cry for relief was hung. AVe
must credit Air. Bryan with many good
results such as tile wrestling of political
power largely frdm the clinched hands
of the few and distributing it to the
masses through surfi metufures as the
lHipular election of senators, the estab
lishment of primaries and such like meas
ures which broadened the basis iof .polit
ical power. Further than this we can I
not see that his contribution to prog
ress has been strong.
And here is the place, to our mind,
where Mr. Bryan showed '.iis weakness.
He was never able to get beyond the
point of believing that economic law could
be regulated by statute and that any
problem could be solved by merely pass
ing a law. AA’ith all the power in the
hands of the people that Mr. Bryan
fought for, and with all of his proposed
legislation in full swing, an unbalanced
economic condition could bring abohp as
hard times as those of the !)o's.
Better times, following the campaign
of 1896, with no deep and general set
back since, deprived Mr. Bryan of a
platform from which to voice the deep
seated distress of■ the niasses. After
that all of his “paramounts" were more
or less artificial and he made no head
way. He was always an advocate,
never a student or even a philosopher.
He was pre-eminently a political case
lawyer. He could never again be a uni
versal advoente. Afterwards he mere
ly lined up on one side or the other of
some already well defined line of thought,
and from our standpoint, he usually lined
up right. But democracy needs so bad
ly an advocate and an interpreter .and
a leader who can go further than this.
It had such a leader for a short and
critical time in Air. AV’ilson, a leader
ship which Air. Bryan could never have
•Sir. Bryan’s faith in statute law was
never better exemplified than in his be
lief that he could negotiate a series of
peace treaties which would prevent war.
And at the very period when the one na
tion of the world which had defiied war
had declared through responsible rulers
that treaties were mere scraps of paper.
Students of the subject know that wars
will never be prevented until some of
the causes whieh bring on war are re
moved, and a great many of them, in
cluding the exagerated idea of nation
ality. Again his faith in statute law
was shown by , his conduct regarding
evolution. ' He thought that what he re
garded as a great danger, namely, the
spread of a belief in evolution, could be
stopped by passing laws.
This shows tb‘ our mind that Air.
Bryan larked that depth of insight, that
power of organized thinking, that knowl
edge of primary; human nature, which
