IN THE LINE-UP FOR BATTLE IT
The Outcome of the Convention ha&
Solidified the Democratic Party.
Pralie for Mr. Hearst. Party
Awaits Parker't Acceptance.
Special to Tho Anlmoroito.
Washington D. C. Aug. 4 1901.
It is tho concensus of opinion In
tho national capital that In the line-
up for hattlc between the two par-
ties the Democracy has the best of
tho situation. It Is believed hero by
tho leaders of tho party who have
visited Washington since th"o conven-
tion In St. Iouls that the outcome of
tho convention has practically solid-
ill od the Democratic party In this
country. It looked for a tlmo In St.
Louis that no power on earth could
ever bring tho two warring factions
together. Dut conciliation and com-
promise on both sides and tho splen
did attltudo of Mr. Bryan and his
leaders havo performed a political ml-
raclo and the old Democratic party
is once more a solid phalanx and will
move In serried ranks on the cohoru
of corruption and extravagances In
tho Republican party. There arc di-
vergent opinions hero concerning tne
telegram sent by Judge Parker to the
convention but the majority of Dem-
ocratic leaders believe that it has had
more of a beneficial effect than other-
wise Whllo of course Judgo Park-
er did not moan literally that the gold
standard was "irrevocably establish-
od" yet it prnctlcnlly Is so until gold
becomes so cheap that men who are
now gold men will seek to demone-
tize It. So long as present conditions
obtain tho gold standard will remain
fixed and nothing can disturb It.
AVliun.JiuwevCrIJi. paf capita or real
or bnsic currency becomes lesa than
It is now there will be more clnmor
for tho double standard and the
monoy question will beronie once
more a paramount Issno in our poli-
ties. Thoro are somo people who
criticise Mr. Iiryrvn fcr his action In
criticizing Judgo Parker nnd por-
tions of the platform slnco the con-
vention adjourned nut tho truth of
tho matter Is that Mr. Hryan has
dono moro to holp tho ticket and hold
his forces together for It than any
ono man In tho country. If he had
laid down Immediately after tho con-
vention nnd accepted fully and en-
tirely everything that was done liun-
3reds of thousands of his followers In
tho past two campaigns would havo
become angered nt him would havo
declared him Insincere and dishonest
and tfbuhl havo bolted tho ticket.
When ho was honest enough howev-
er to crltlcizo the things In Judge
Parker that ho did not llko nnd things
distasteful to him In tho "platform
vhllo at tho same time ho proclaimed'
that thoro was enough Democracy In
the platform to warrant his. entire
support his friends know him to bo
honest and agreed that If their old
leader could thus support tho ticket
they too could mako the same criti-
cisms nnd give It their undivided sup-
port. Tho friends of Judge Parker

who know him best say that he will
appreciate this fact as thoroughly ns
any man and that It Is his Intention
i.nd the intention of the leaders to
give to Mr. Hryan some of the heav-
iest tasks of the campaign. One of
those tasks will be to enrry the state
of Nebraska and. It ho succeeds In
doing this In which they will render
him valuable assistance he can not
only go lo tho senate of tho United
Statos but will be one of tho biggest
men In the Parker administration. It
augurs well for our ticket that Instead
of all tho enthusiasm for it bolng ex-
hausted at tlio tlmo of Its naming It
has grown day'liy day since tho ad-
journment of tho convention. It Is
progressive In public favor Instead
or retrogressive. Tho only possible
discord In sight at this tlmo within
tho Democratic rank.! Is the fight In
New York City botween McCarren and
Tvmmany Hall. It Is believed how-
c.er that Juugo Parker is a good
enough politician to send for Mr.
Murphy and placa'to him by giving
him all ho asks thus guaranteeing
tho blggejt Democratic majority ever
cast for any Presidential candldato
In Greater Now York. With that
fight off our hands It gives us every
chance of .carrying tho Stato of New
York and with It will go Connecticut
New Jersey and Delaware. The nom-
ination of Davis gives us West Vir-
ginia beyond a doubt. Tho negro
question assures us Maryland and
with either Illinois Wisconsin or
Indiana w'e will win the fight. It
looks ns though Wisconsin were abso-
lutely assured to us on account of
the factional fight In that State be
tween the Republicans and with Tom
Taggart of Indiana for National Chair-
man wo are assured of that State.
Thoro aro many words of praise
horo from loaders of the party fcr the
Hon. Wlllinm Randolph Hearst. His
I action In wiring the convention of hU
I loyalty to tho ticket nnd his congrntu-
lations to Judge Parker havo caused
many men v.r: hithoito were his bit-
terest enemies to ftpenk words of
praise In his behalf. There is no
iinuoi mat uis eigni greni newspapers
will do meat and effective work In
this campaign. Demorratlc party needs
