THE CHANDLER NEWS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, lHoO.
Mr. Bryan's experience in
farming bids fair to rival his ca-
reer as a soldier.
Kentucky's Goebelized courts
are but the natural results of
Chairman Jones firmly believes
he has Croker and Hill under
bonds to keep the peace during
It is not believed that Mr. Bry-
an will attempt to explain any of
his miscarried predictions. He
will simply go right ahead mak-
ing new ones.
The Texas populists complain
that the democrats steal their
campaign thunder The Kansas
City platform is conclusive evi-
dence on this point.
All the paid agents and attor-
neys of the foreign shipping in-
terests are supporting M''. Bry-
an. Fortunately the election is
to be decided by men who have
the American interests at heart.
Every democratic editor is
hard at work trying to convince
his readers tnat the 1(! to 1 plank
of the Kansas City platform
doesn't attempt to account for
Mr. Bryan's persistency in forc-
ing its adoption.
One of Senator Pettigrew's
Filipino friends has involved him-
self in a question of veracity with
Admiral Dewey. It will not re-
quire a vast amount of time for
the American people to make up
their minds concerning this con-
Democratic loaders are ap-
parently beginning to fear that
the only issue in which they can
place real trust is the issue of
the "trusts " It is to be hoped
that for the sake of perpetuation
of 11avor in this issue, that it will
be kept on ice.
The brave General Lawton, a
life long democrat, lost his life
because of the eucouragempnt
given Aguinaldo by his American
sympathizers. The democratic
leaders have the audacity to aslt
the voters to indorse that policy
The refusal of the Idaho demo-
crats to incorporate the Sulzer-
Lentz view of the recent mining
troubles in their platform indi-
cates quite clearly that, for cam-
paign purposes, the material
must be used a great ways from
home in order to be made effec-
"Elect me to the presidency.
The senate is safely republican,
and it would be impossible for
me to do any harm to the country
during the next four years."
Does the country want a chief
executive who is compelled to
make such a plea in his own be-
The Hon. Webster Davi«' pro-
found knowledge of military has
led him to pay a high compli-
ment to the war record of the
Hon. "William J. Brenning." It
will be recalled that it was the
Hon. Webster Davis who so
graphically described the oper-
ations of the "horse dragoons"
in South Africa.

Tammany is raising a campaign
fund of $2,000,000. This will nat-
urally make a little inroad upon
the profits of the ice trust.
One" year ago the democrats
could not talk enough about the
"trusts." It was a theory fond-
ly held that the "trusts" were
held in trust for the democratic
party the "paramount" issue in
189(5 Why is that there is so
little talking about the "trusts"
by the democrats now? Were it
not that the writer of the anti
trust plank of the democratic
platform, Van Wyck, has kept
the trust issues fresh on ice, that
Richardson of Tennessee, who
presided over the Kansas City
gathering, through his private
book trust, has made the "trust"
issue an open book; that Senator
Jones, chairman of the demo-
cratic national committee, has
found a trustworthy use of a
"trust" in cotton as a means of
extracting "velvet;" that Bryan
himself is seeking to get elected
by means of a political fusion
"trust;" the "trust" issue in
politics would, during this
campaign, be a rather rusty
Peru and Costa Rico have
adopted the gold standard. The
Coin Harveys to the South of us
are experiencing hard luck.
Mr. Bryan doubtless feels
internally vexed over the praises
bestowed upon him since nomi-
nation, by prominent English
papers like the "Spectator." It
must be naturally dsagreeable to
be taken for a friend by a nation
against which he wants to wage
a wordy war in the hope of gain-
ingthe votesof such people in this
country as feel hostile to it. The
English apparantly care nothing
about Bryan's pro-Boer protesta-
tions, for they do not believe Mr.
Bryan as president would be
militant enouirh to involve the
Anglo-Saxon countries in bloody
war by going any further than
offering to mediate, as President
McKinley did. Why England
wishes for Bryan's election is
because he is a free-trader. By
closing the mills of the United
States the mills of England
would do a bigger business.
The work that Mr. Bryan would
takeaway from American work-
men would go to the workmen of
' The growth of the Southern
cotton industry during the past
three years is an emphatic an-
swer to the calamity predictions
of the politicians of that section.
If the Hon. Richard P. Bland
were alive he would be outspoken
in his denunciation of the efforts
of the democratic campaign man-
agers to scuttle the financial
plank of their own platform.
Chairman Jones declares that
the cotton compress trust, of
which he a stockholder and
beneficiary, is authorized under
the constitution. We believe the
same claim was set up by the
promoters of the Tammany ice
If Bryan were elected presi-
dent there is not a bit of doubt
that he would construe it as a
proper endorsement of his 1(5 to
1 ideas. He would say that the
end had justified the imperialistic
means by which he imposed his
will on the builders of the demo-
cratic platform, he being indeed
"wiser than they knew." In his
inaugural address he would say
that the will of the people ex-
pressed at the polls was that the
gold law must go, and the policy
of free silverism be ushered in.
He would then proceed to im-
pose on congress, the imperial-
istic methods by which he won
in the democratic committee on
resolutions at Kansas City.
When congress had done his
bidding, and free silver was
accomplished, how would huin-
i bugged honest money democrats
feel about their own share in the
dishonest work of making
present 100-eent dollars worth
4'J cents? They would undoubt-
edly feel "like 30 cents."
Senator Pettigrew, who ad-
dressed the delegates to the
Sioux Falls convention as
"Fellow populists," now states
he is a Bryan democrat, anil by
making such a statement he fails
to make'a bit of sensation, nor
stir up a ripple of anger in the
ranks of the Sioux Falls popu-
lists. This is because there is
no popular disposition to split
hairs over the technical differ -
|ences between the pie biting
wing of the populist party and
the democracy under Bryan.
It only stirs up hard feeling to
dispute which* it is that has
really swallowed up the other in
its attempt to swallow pie. J.
Sterling Morton, who is an un-
swallowed remnant of the old
democracy which Jefferson
founded, says that the Bryan
democracy is an "undigested
mass in the uneasy stomach of
populism." Occasionally, how-
ever, there are evidences that
'Mr. Morton cannot be wholly
right. After the dust of conten-
tion had become cleared from the
| atmosphere of the state conven-
j tions of Nebraska anti Kansas it
was found that there were visible
on the tickets about sixteen
pieces of populistic head to every
One piece of democratic tail.
