Bryan at West Union

Wednesday August 7th was Postville Day as well as Bryan Day at West Union and it was something scandelous the way our Progressive Republicans poured out to pound their palms for the noted native of Nebraska and to cheer to the echo the greatest progressive Democrat now living as he ably and honestly and fairly reviewed the work of the Republican and Democratic national conventions and showed up the trickery of the thieves in both, and briefly summarized the Taft, Wilson and Roosevelt platforms. It was great dope, delightfully delivered by an able artist. It seemed to be a general holiday for people herabouts, 115 going over by train and many others by auto, and all had a good time and are glad they went.
