The democratic party is waging a
great sham battle against the Trusts.
So fierce are they waging this con
flict that Hill, Gorman, Cleveland
or some such democratic trust ex
terminator is likely to be the demo
cratic candidate in 1904. Take the
history of the democratic party as a
tariff annihilator and you have its
history as a Trust destroyer. It
looks very much as though the
great trusts and monopolies in the
country would be likely to support
the demociatic candidate iti 1904,
unless, President Roosevelt lets up
on his Anti-Trust legislation ideas
lie is trying to force upon congress
by the introduction of a bill he is
having prepared by a committee
with congressman Littlefield at its
head. Unless a party has a remedy
to offer for the Trust evil in this
country it should not receive a pas-
sing notice fronj the American vot-
er. The democratic party is as
thoroughly a trust party as the re-
publican party and this fact the
people of average intelligence
should grasp, by reason of the party
proposing no adequate remedy to
solve the trust problem. Is it not a
fact that for 20 years the demo-
cratic party begged the American
people for a chance to behead the
dorsed any of the candidates in the
field would have been equivalent
to the party making an attempt to
elect or defeat one or the other of
the old party candidates, and in so
doing would have incurred more or
less enmity. The Peoples Party men
didnot wish to do thisjbut rather pre-
ferred to pursue the policy of mak-
ing friends this year. The field in
Oklahoma is virtually left this year
to the republican and democratic
candidate for delegate to congress
and the election will definitely test
the strength of the two old parties
in Oklahoma. A t.^t of strength
we think is all that is necessary to
convince the democrats that if the
republicans are to be fired through
the transom in Oklahoma some
other party than the democratic
party will have to do the work.
