Pretended "Harmony" Which lias Nq
Existence In Reality.
The power of party discipline
, which still lingers in the Democratic
' party mude the nomination of Wil
' son nominall.v unanimouR at the
end, but there were things" said and
done at that convention which,
whatever men may say, will not ho
forgotten or condoned.
Bryan doubtless prevented the
nomination of Clark, but ho did it
. by statements which Mr. Clark de
nounces as "vile and malicious
slanders," made more despicable
by the fact that they were innuen
does and not specific' statements
which could be specifically denied.
No matter what position Mr. Clark
himself may take, his enthusiastic
friends will not bo found heartily
supporting the willing beneficiaries
of "vile and . malicious slanders."
And Bryan's slobbering over Clark
after the nomination of Wilson will
only make matters worse.
Bryan's vitriolic attacks on his
own party were a remarkable feature
of the convention'. Mr. Clark had
ail unmistakable preference in the
primaries and ho doubtless does re
present a moderate, conservatism
which the election of Parker as chair
man proved to dominate the con
vention. Bryan set out to and did temp
orarily scare the convention out of
such conservative tendency as it had
by coarsu abuse of individuals and
masses and plainly intimating that
he would bolt any nomination
which was made possible by the
votes of the New York delegation,
which he said was controlled "by
Charles F. Murphy, Thomas Fortune
Ryan, J. Pierpont Morgan and
That sounded virtuous, but it
made an enemy of every New York
delegate, and let us see how the
virtue held out. Toward the end
the first great boost to the Wilson
movement was the Indiana delegat
ion, headed by that noble patriot,
Thomas Taggart. Although it is
alleged, and not denied, that Thom
as Taggart keeps a common gambling-house,
ho was cordially wel
comed to tho fold by Mr. Bryan.
The next shove upward was by
the Illinois delegation, headed by
Roger Sullivan, who Bryan insist is
the personification of political in
famy. If Bryan would not support
a candidate nominated by votes de
livered by Ryan and Belmont, why
should ho support one nominated
by Taggart and Sullivan? Finally,
to make his cup full, the motion to
make tho nomination unanimous
was made by one of tho leaders of
that awful New York delegation.
As tho leading supporter of Mr.
Wilson if he could not get the
nomination himself Mr. Bryan's
conduct will bo remembered against
There were many queer things
done at that convention. For ex
amplo, on Monday, when tho funds
of delegates began to run low, two
Wilson men of New Jersey pledged
a large fund to pay the hotel bills
of needy' "Wilson delegates." Of
course, any delegate who would vote
for Wilson was a "Wilson delegate,',
but what an uproar there would
have been had Messrs. Ryan and
Belmont pledged a similar fund for
Clark delegate. It would have
been denounce"! as rank bribery, as
of course it was, but as it was bribery
in tho courso ofihe purification of
nolities. no rcfdhier has objected.

Unscathed by his battle with Jim
Flynn and with a check from Jack
Curley for $551,000 in his pocket,
Jack Johnson hurried back to that
dear Chicago. Flynn is at his
Montezuma camp nursing-a nose
mashed flat. Johnson, accompanied
by his wife and his camp retinue,
left at once for the windy city. The
champion did not assert what his
future plans would be, hut gave tho
impression he would likely accept
the offers he has had to go to
Australia to fight Sam Langford.
Johnson made the statement that
he would positively retire after Labor
Flynn has mado no announce
ment of his plans.
"I never want to see another pair
of boxing gloves, either in private
or in public," emphatiaclly declar
ed Champion Jack Johnson, en
route to Chicago. Johnson was in
a happy mood, unmarked by his
fight with Jim Flynn at La's Vegas.
"If Al Palzor wants to fight me,"
declared the champion, "ho will
have to do it not later than Labor
day, for on tho day following I wil
rctiro from the ring forever. That's
final I auit then for good."
Johnson said he had cleared 636,
000 on his victory over Flynn. He
received $31,000 from Jack Curley,
the promoter, and won $5000 in
betting on himself.
"And Mrs. Johnson won $6,000
betting on me," laughingly remark
ed the heavy-weight. "She gave
odds of 3 to 1 at that."

Fight to a Finish With Paia Winning
in the Eleventh.
Eleven innings of nerve nicking
baseball, was what the fans were
treated to in the first game last Sun
day between the Stars of Wailuku
and tho Paias. It was seen in the
early stages that both Bal and IJobin
son tho opposing pitchers, were in
fine form, and that the game was
to he a pitchers battle. The men
behind the pitchers were all keyed'
up, and they backed up tlie mound
men in great shape. Time after
time it seemed that a runner must
score, but by brilliant pitching and
equally brilliant fielding the side
would he retired, much to tho dis
gust of the runners.
After each side had been treated
to a row. of goose eggs for five in
nings, the Stars succeeded in get
ting a man on second. George Cum
mings was at bat, and George is al
ways dangerous. He swatted one
that roso high towards right field,
and it looked like an easy out, but
the right fielder was caught off his
guard. He was too slow in start
ing with tho result that the ball
dropped just out of bib reach, and
the Stars scored. ' As tho game went
on with no more scoring,-that lone
run began to look as big as a dozen.
In the ninth, after Paia had been
retired in every inning with nothing
in the way of a score but goose eggs,
tho strain began to tell. Ferreira,
tho Stai short stop, who had been
playing a great game all afternoon,
besides laceing out the two best hits
of the day, let a hot one get past
him, and quick as a Hash, the whole
situation was changed. What look
ed like a sure victory was changed
to defeat right there. Paia only
scored ono run in tho ninth, but at
this'stago they were playing faster
ball than were tho Stars. Tho
tenth went by without a score, but
in their half of the eleventh, Pai.v
again got a man on third. Bal
mado the mistake to give George
Dunn a slow ball instead of a fast
one, a hit down tho third baso line
was tho result, and the game was
It was without a doubt tho finest,
classiest game of baseball ever seen
on Maui. Everyone, outside of the
extreme partisans were satisfied.
Satisfied not because Paia won, but
becauso they had seen baseball as it
should bo played.
Many people havo laid the blame
for the los3 of tho game to the Star
short stop, and though his error
was the direct cause of the first Paia
tally, still at the time tho Paia team
was playing tho better ball, and
should have won. The Stars can
afford to lose this one, and more.
We hope when these two teams
meet again to seo a repetition of tho
same brand of ball.
Tho second game between the J.
A. C.8 and Kahului, was ono of
these fairly good games, with no
thing of especial interest to recom
mend it. Tho first game contained
all tho fireworks, and this one was
tamo in comparison.
Russell started to pitch for Kahu
lui, but was yanked out after two
innings. Wo think this was a mis
take, as McCauley did not appear
anxious to work, and besides instead
of pulling Russell out, if Montcastlo
had given his entire team a good
big dose of ginger it would havo
done more good. Swan at third
base, was tho only man on the team
who seemed to care whether they
lost or won.
