Philadelphia Public Ledger: When a
case of suicidal mania becomes as
acute as Mr. Bryan's; nothing that thr
most expert political alienist can do ls
likely to work a cure. Each attempt of
the recent secretary ot state to kill
abusait as a public man seems to be
more desperate than the last The fet
ter In which he announced his resina-.
ti on indicated hardly anything more
serious than melancholia. Hts expla
nation of "the seal lsslue" closely ap
proaches acute dementia. BidnSy
Smith's familiar retort to the man who
. approached him with "Mr. Jones. I be
lieve," suggests .the Incurable nature
of his illusions. "Sir," retorted Smith,
"it you believe that you will believe
anything." If Mr. Bryan believes that
his appeal to the people of the United
, States CAn do the president harm, that
lt will cou-duce a single person capa
ble of straight thinking, there caa be
. no limit to his credulity.

Springfield Republican: Mr. Bry
an 'ii peculiar work aa the indispensa
ble political prop'of the Democratic
president had seemed flnishod before
tho break between them In relation
to tho war Usuea with "Germany
caused the secretary's resignation.
The adjournment of the Democratic
congress signalized tho conclusion of
tho secretary's political -mission. If
ono may take an impersonal view of
the situation, it was high time that
Mr. Bryan retired from an office for
which he was Indifferently fltUul and
made way for a thorougn export in
international affaira. Tho pity of it
is that'Mr. ll ryun could not have seen
the necessity for this unselfish course
severa months ago. If ho could not
abide by the requirement? of S Arm
and even stern, diploraacw because of
bis pacifist principles, be should hate
resigned when the German submarine
warfare on merchantmen was an
nounced and the prseldent notified
Germany that lt would be held to U
