The Outlook

A Family Paper

Saturday, 18 July, 1896

HE Chicago Convention was far more exciting than the Republican Convention at St. Louis. The earlier Convention was practically a registration body; the later Convention was characterized by a fierce struggle between the two elements in the Democratic ranks, and an apparently final departure from the traditional Democratic positions. An account of the proceedings of the Convention will be found on another page; the platform, together with the minority report of the platform committee, is reprinted in full on page 109, and editorial comment on the platform is made in another column. So far as the action on the free coinage of silver was concerned, the result at Chicago was so definitely foreshadowed that the resolutions finally adopted on this subject gave no surprise to the country at large, although they were somewhat more radical than was anticipated. The abrogation of the time-honored unit rule as to the voting of delegations was also part of the revolutionary character of the proceedings of the Convention. When it came to the question of nominating candidates for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency, the divisions among the free-coinage men indicated in these columns last week became very apparent. The dramatic incident in the Convention was Mr. Bryan's speech, and that speech settled the question of the nomination. It captured the Convention. Neither Mr. Bland, Mr. Teller, nor Mr. Stevenson had any chance after Mr. Bryan's eloquence had assailed the ears of the delegates. The nomination for the Vice-Presidency, as has happened many times before, was mainly a matter of accident, and illustrated anew the absurdity of leaving to the last hours of a great gathering, when the interest is spent and everybody is anxious to get away, the selection of a candidate who may become President of the United States. The currency question, which has been steadily growing in interest and importance for twenty years, is now sharply defined, and the reorganization of parties along the lines of this issue is rapidly going


William Jennings Bryan, the nominee for the Presidency, was born March 19, 1860, in Salem, the county seat of Marion County, Illinois. His father, Judge Silas L. Bryan, was a Virginian by birth, and a man of standing and integrity. Mr. Bryan's early days were spent upon the Bryan farm just outside the village, and he attended the public schools. In 1877 he entered Illinois College in Jacksonville, and four years later graduated at the head of his class.

He thereupon began the study of law in Union Law College, Chicago, at the same time serving his legal apprenticeship in the office of Lyman Trumbull. In 1884. he married Miss Mary E. Baird, who had been a fellowstudent in Jacksonville, graduating from the young woman's seminary in that place the same year that Mr. Bryan graduated from the college, and holding the same rank in her class. Mr. and Mrs. Bryan have been fellow-students ever since for she studied law under him, and kept with him in his intellectual life just as he has kept with her in

Number 3

her devotion to domestic life. In 1887 they removed to Lincoln, Neb., and three years later Mr. Bryan was offered the Democratic nomination for Congress. The district had been strongly Republican, but Mr. Bryan canvassed it from one end to the other on the tariff issue, holding joint debates with his Republican opponent, and won by nearly seven thousand majority, In Congress he won his laurels as an orator by a speech on the tariff which was by far the ablest free-trade argument made during the session. In 1892 the Populist party had been organized, and commanded the allegiance of a large portion of Mr. Bryan's farmer supporters. Mr. Bryan, however, secured enough Populist votes to be returned to Congress, and at the new session was Mr. Bland's chief supporter in the fight against the unconditional repeal of the Sherman Act. His speech on the repeal bill was the most scholarly as well as the most eloquent argument for the free coinage of silver that had ever been delivered in the House of Representatives. The State Convention of his party in Nebraska that year repudiated his position, but the year following, after a hard fight, indorsed it by an overwhelming majority. At the close of his second term in Congress he was the candidate of the fusion-Democrats and Populists for United States Senator, but a Republican Legislature was chosen. He has since been editor of the Omaha "World-Herald," that paper accepting his position on the currency question when he assumed the post. His private character, like that of ex-Governor McKinley, is beyond reproach.

Arthur Sewall, the candidate for Vice-President, was born in Bath, Maine, in 1835. His father, William D. Sewall, was a large ship-builder. Mr. Sewall was educated in the public schools, and began his business life as an apprentice in his father's ship-yards. When nineteen years old he formed a partnership with a somewhat older brother in the ship-building business, and the firm was remarkably successful. On the death of his father Mr. Sewall succeeded to his business, and has gone on increasing it during years in which most New England shipping houses have retired from the sea. A few years ago Mr. Sewall became convinced that the age for wooden vessels was past, and, after a prolonged visit to the English yards, erected a modern steel plant in Bath. The firm of which he is at the head are the largest owners of sailing craft in this country. Mr. Sewall has faith that the superiority of American workmanship may yet re-establish our old supremacy in the ship-building industry. Apart from his shipping interests he has been a stockholder in a large number of Maine corporations; was at one time President of the Maine Central Railroad, and is now President of the First National Bank of Bath. It is said that he began the study of financial questions at the time the greenback movement was victorious in Maine. He became a bimetallist, and finally, less than a year ago, declared himself in favor of the free coinage of silver by the independent action of the United States. He was then believed to represent only a small minority of Maine Democrats, but at this year's Conven
