COCKRAN'S FRANK TALK
WHY DEMOCRATS FAIL.
Says People Think They Are Luna
tics—He Advises Candor.
Congressman W. Bourke Cockrsn. after being re
nominated by the Democrats of the Xllth Congress
District last night, put his word barrel on tap. and
it flowed for twenty-seven typewritten pages, am
ply satisfying whatever of thirst there was In the
audience for Democratic paregoric. He claimed
everything in sight for the Democratic party. start-
Ing In by describing the Creator's directions to
Adam bs forming th« doctrine of the Democratic
party. He dwelt lovingly on the assertion that the
government of the country had always been on
!•• niocratic principles, regretted to be forced to
state that they had practically always been admin
istered by Republicans, and reached his climax
when he said the reason for this was that the peo
ple ioii«=id< red the Democrats lunatics and didn't
«lar© trust the government to them. He told his
audience he believed in frankness. He was frank,
with a vengeance.
Judge Parker, after his refusal yesterday to an
swer a question on his attitude as to allowing the
negro to vote, will read with delight Mr. Cockran's
remarks on the need for Democratic candor.
Mr. •'"ockran wound up by saying Mayor Mc-
Ctellan was giving this city the best government
It ever had.
Mr. Cbcfcran'a speech in part was as follows: ■
It is well to bear In mind that Democrats never
differ about principles which constitute Democracy.
When the flrsi man was informed by his Creator
that he must eat his bread In the sweat of his
brow, he was sho-wii now li" could support lumseir
In the largeel abundance, the greatest comfort ana
ihe most perfect peace. In that sentence is com
prised the whole economic law and the whole Dem
ocratic doctrine. Democracy Is merely the applica
tion of that revelation from Heaven to human gov
ernment. • ■ . , ,_
The unbroken tendency of the country for forty
years may be defined as steady adoption of Demo,
cratic policies and the almost equally steady per
sistence in intrusting the enforcement of them to
memb#rs of the Republican party. The awful
crime which has provoked a form of popular ven
geance outside the law and repugnant to it. de
moralising to all classes and threatening to the
6tabllltv of democratic institutions, was first com
mitted 'when the Southern States groaned under
the hideous travesties maintained by the carpet
bagger. Not all the waste of war. not all the
treasure expended in prosecuting It, not all the
lives sacrificed In the course of It endangered the
Republic half so seriously as the lynching* which
the best people in a great i ortlon of the country
believe are the only means of effectively defending
and protecting the sanctity of their womanhood.
They or- the direct fruits of Republican ascend

Indeed to organized society, which they involve Is

held in higher affection and nowhere are the men
who administer it held in less c.-teem. The Amer
ican people are profoundly distrustful of politi
cians This popular distrust extends to politicians
of both parties but 1 think for different reasons.
Republicans are very generally regarded as cor
rupt out somehow or other they have succeeded
in persuading the people that the Democratic poli
ticians are crasy. and the electors, believing them
selves redured to a choice between crazy men and
corrupt men. have preferred to trust the. corrupt,
probably on the ground that rogues can be dealt
with according to their roguery, while lunatics
cannot be dealt with at all. I think the whole
trend of results ought to leave little doubt that the
opinion Is widely held. Now. the Republican does
not deny that his hand Is in the national till and
that it will remain there, but some way or other
lie appears to have succeeded In persuading the
people that the Democrats who denounce his rob
ben- would paralyai all commerce and wreck all
property if they were allowed to drive him away.
And to the people have preferred submitting to
peculation, which, however grievous and demoral
izing, leaves them something of what their labor
produces, rather than risk what they think might
be the total destruction of their Industrial system

To restore confidence In the Democratic party
the first essential step Is to establish not that its
leaders are honest, for that. I think, is generally
conceded, but that they are sane.
The really effective Republican arguments are
all In whisper*." the whispered conditions upon
which corruption funds are supplied. But the Dem
ocratic party cannot deal In whispers, if It b«

For my part I never could -understand why any
one should hesltnte about candor In expressing
opinions. If nny man Is ashamed of his opinion he

SILVER CLUB'S STORMY SESSION.
Parker's Gold Standard Resented — His Let
ter of Acceptance Awaited.
IFIT TELronAPii to the TBint-VE.I
Indianapolis. Oct. 3.— An attempt to pledsro the
Indians Silver Club to Judge Parker has resulted
in failure, and after a stormy passion It was agreod
that every man should vote as he pleased. Tin.
club, before taking any action, decided to wait un
til Judge Park'-r's letter of acceptance was pub
lished. Many of them resented his statement re
garding the gold standard, and will not support
him. It was determined to leave every member
free to do as he please-*
According to Dr. 1... N. Howard, who Is president
of the club, and who had talked with the thirty
five or forty members of the club and heard from
as many more. It will be a close race between
Parker, Watson and Roosevelt to determine who
will get the most votes out of the club. Dr.
Howard thinks Parker will rot pet more than one
third of the ISO members in this city.

H. G. DAVIS' S BLUNDERS.
Cleveland Not President in Fiscal
Year of 1892.
| FROM THE TMBCN* Bl'REAf.]
Washington. Oct. 3.— Amazement Is expressed
here at the blunders made by Hen*. G. Davfe in
his letter accepting the Democratic nomination for
Vice-President. The most striking Is his selection
of the fiscal year 1832 as one of the years of '.he
Cleveland administration and his quotation of the
total and per capita expenditures of that yetr
for purposes of contrast with those of the fiscal
year 1304. President Cleveland was not elected
until November. 1892. four months after the close
of the fiscal year which Mr. Davis selects as a
sample of his administration, and was not inaug
urated until March 4. 1833. almost the close of the
fiscal year of 1893, so that the first fiscal year of
his term, properly speaking, was that of MM. It
is pointed out that by selecting the third year of
the Harrison admlnlstartion he secured an ad
vantage of $22,000,000 difference In - the total ex
penditures of the government and a difference of
13 cents in the per capita expense. Mr. Davis
also utterly falls to show the increase of ex
penditures of the Cleveland administration over
those of the preceding Republican administration,
and leaves it to be Inferred by the inattentive
reader that increases in the expenditures are co
incident with Republican rule.
Mr. Davis reiterates the usual campaign fulmina
tlons against trusts, but doe" not suggest a rem
edy. He was probably restrained from prescrib
ing the Republican remedy of federal prosecution
of contracts in restraint of trade by the Albany
Democratic platform, and the assurances of Par
ker's managers that the Presidential candidate will
hold that federal prosecution of corporations char
tered by the State is a violation of the Constitu
tion. In fact, -t Is remarked. Mr. Davis follows
his arraignment of the trusts with a paragraph on
violations of the Constitution, apparently intended
to reassure any timorous contributor* to the Dem
ocratic campaign fund.
Mr. David's charges of extravagance against Re
publican administrations have not even the merit
of originality, having ail been uttered by Judge
Parker in more amplified form, and effectually dis
proved by the sound thinkers and experienced
economists whose attention was called to them by
Parker's letter of acceptance.

St Louis. Oct. $-— la a written coaftsalon to-day
Charles F. Kelly. Speaker of the House of Dele
gates during a period ii. the life of th* fcoodle com- ,
bine, relates the story of that combine. E«s declares
that a prominent local politician protaisei blmseir ♦
and others Implicated that the next Circuit Attor- j
ney would be "all right." and premised if they |
would remain firm he would secure for tiera either .
continuances until the new Circuit Attorney too* ,

JKelly is under conviction fot perjury m cotoec- .
tk>n with the boodle cases, and his trial on the
charge of bribing in connection with the suburb
franchise deal with be called on Monday. He a
now out on bond. He declared that the polltlciai . ;
he spoke of paid him $15,000 of the $»,000 promised,
on condition that he would keep away from the .
! grand Jury, before -which he had been subposnaea j

ada. taking the name of James Hogan. It was the |
j intention of the man that paid the »5.«». Kelly
\ said, to have him remain away until after the
I sUtute of limitations had run out on the lighting I
\ deal. By a miscalculation. Kelly said, he came i
j back too soon and was arrested.
• Kelly declares the politician said that the new j
j Circuit Attorney, for which ©face nominations are )
to be made by the Democrats to-day, would be j
"bis man." Kelly asserts that he refused this offer. j
! and that he makes this confession to satisfy the ,
pangs of an accusing conscience, to obey the re- -,
Quests of his wife and to do what he can to make .
atonement to the public and prevent other young ,
men from following the path which h-» decUres has |
! led him to ruin. •
In his confession Kelly details the story of the ,
city lighting deal, for which he says a boodle fund
, of $47 COO was divided between the nineteen mem
; bers of the combine at Julius L*hmann\«» birthday
' party. He declares that the politician mentioned 1
gave him the boodle fund, and that ***** » tv ;

Of the combine Kelly had this to say.
We never thought of passing a bill out of which i
any money could be obtained unless we were _ p.ta •
I for our votes. We went about it in a 1 !■!■ ■.■.■■■ j
way. and had combine tins-, at »<»«»fi^«
and fixed the bribe prices which we were so recet\» |
for our votes by a majority vote of the conMn*. ■

honesty we had confidence to go out and get me
■ money." agents would rarely ever betray us. In 1
Theee age.its would rarely ever betray js In
i one or two Instances they confiscated parr or trie
i money, but as a general rule they were honest wltn .
1 us. Among ourselves, understand, we had a nig.i
code if morals, and It was considered extern-. >
, dishonest for a number of the combine to o-p.
I bribe money without dividing it among his fellows.
We had a fixed schedule of prices for various bill?.
according to the value of the franchises or privi
i leges given. We hardly ever received leas than ,
i $1,000 for the combined vote. We considered It be- |
neath our dignity to take la** than that. On one
or two occasions, though, we got aa low as **> each
for our vote*, and some of the boy« took IB each.
' but were ashamed of it because the price was so
I Our combine was not alone: party Itre.v Both
! Democrat* and Republicans belonged to It. My ex
perienc* has been that boodlers line up according
to their own Interests and not under party Btaas>
nnls. Democrat* and R*p':t>ll.-an» in St Louis
, usually nominate men Is go to the House of £♦•*-
gate* for the m>n*v they can tn^ke out or n Ba-n
party m*n votes for his own fellow, and eMber one 1
I tlutt gets in serve* those who rob the city of fran
chises. I believe this h~* be»-n tolerated in W.
Louis because mn many of the large corporations or j
1 the city are mixed up in boodlln* one way r>r an
other. The head* of these ccrporation* used to
think It le?s trouble to buy what they wanted than
to elect honest men to the House of legatee. J
There are many otli-r things I can and will tel!. \
later m. but this vrtll d.-» now. This, in brief Is ;
i ray story and the confession of my tnfamv. I w- 1
1 l!ev^ though, th.it If the people of St Louis allow
I this man »a prominent politician In named* to go 1
■ f»n and control both political parties and put Mi
! men In office, the public will be his' as guilty as ,
S 1 urn to-«lnv Such la hit" hod on the community ,
• though. It i«eeo>» helpless. If I knew anything! ,
, could d-> that 1 have not done to nrouse the people i
of this city, or any of the people of this Stnte. to ,
i the necessity of putting a stop to corruption. I
would gladly do It.
I am now suffering the renalty for my crimes. ,
lam degraded an.l disgraced I don't want to
