"T' v The Commoner. MAY 29, 1903.. - a MB. BRYAN'S POLITICAL POSITION What Mr. Bryan most needs may bo described as a sano opportunism. His stubborn insistence upon the free silver policy, at this lato day, may bo heroic; it is undoubtedly sincere, and in' harmony with tho character of the man. But as was said of a famous charge in a desperate battle "It is not war." Mr. Bryan probably has thought out his courso in tho immediate, future. It may be even that his attacks upon Mr. Cleveland have been deliberately designed to prevent tho democratic party, in the present reaction of which lie is fully cognizant, from swinging too far toward the polo opposite the one at which he stands. It may be possible, too, that he would now wel come a Cleveland candidacy as the one most conducive to his purpose of opposing the wave of conservatism which mounts higher and higher in the democracy. It is not difficult' to conceive of a plan whose main object was to provoke, out of sheer irrita tion, a C...

Ho expressed tho wish that the law might compel a disclosure of the names of tho men who really dictate the editorial policy of papers. Among these papers the New York Times was mentioned .by name.

The fact that these frauds can be successfully practiced proves tho prevalence of a false standard of success.
