William Jennings Bryan, Joe Cain (2009). Next to the ministry I know of no more noble profession than the law. The object aimed at is justice, equal and exact, and if it does not reach that end at once it is because the stream is diverted by selfishness or checked by ignorance. Its principles ennoble and its practice elevates. William Jennings Bryan. Ignorance, Law, Practice.
Bryan died five days later. His speech lay undelivered.
Procedural tactics by the defence prevented this. Bryan died five days later. This volume reprints the 1925 text in its entirety, with a historical introduction.
William Jennings Bryan argued that evolution and creationism were at odds with each other. Bryan, a Democrat, ran for the presidency twice against William McKinley and was defeated both times. Clarence Darrow argued that the two could coexist.
William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925) was a populist and a Nebraska congressman. Bryan lost his subsequent bids for the presidency in 1900 and 1908, using the years between to run a newspaper and tour as a public speaker. He ran for president as a Democrat in 1896 but was defeated by Republican William McKinley. After helping Woodrow Wilson secure the Democratic presidential nomination for 1912, he served as Wilson’s secretary of state until 1914. In his later years, Bryan campaigned for peace, prohibition and suffrage, and increasingly criticized the teaching of evolution.
William Jennings Bryan, three-time presidential candidate, argued for the prosecution, while Clarence Darrow, the famed defense attorney, spoke for Scopes.
Scopes had accepted his first teaching position in Dayton after graduating in 1924 from the University of Kentucky, where he was taught evolution.

If they dare to come out in the open field and defend the gold standard as a good thing, we shall fight them to the uttermost, having behind us the producing masses of the nation and the world. Having behind us the commercial interests and the laboring interests and all the toiling masses, we shall answer their demands for a gold standard by saying to them, you shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns.
