H QTFTR PATPTIHg 'TRTHTOTC9 THURSDAY MORNING- JULY 7, 1901.
IperJty under, that law. which was a Dcm
ocratic .tariff law. being a tariff for reve
nue only. 1 As eminent a Ttopubllcaa as
James G. Blalno had recorded this his
torical fact in black nnd whlto.
From 1S01 down to tho outbreak 05, the
Civil war tho country was nlnetcnths of
the time under Democratic ascendancy,
with Democratic tariff legislation, and
nine-tenths of that time our peoplo wcro
prosperous beyond all precedent aa com
pared with other peoples on tho surface
of tho earth contemporaneous with them
or prior to their time. "Wliat tho Repub
lican platform calls "a Democratic tariff
law based on free-trade principles," re
ferring to tho tariff of 1S)4. tho so-called
Wilson-Gorman bill, was tho farthest re
moved from ireo trade or any tariff law
that has ever exlsfed In this country ex
cept tho ono which bore tho name of Mc
KInley and the one which afterward boro
the ilnmo of DInj;loy. But oven this was
a tariff law which followed adversity In
stead of preceding It. Besldss all that,
statistics show that our Imports were not
Increased under that act, henco Its opora
tlon did no't hurt us by Inducing, unduo
Mr. Williams rend an editorial from
tho Now York Times of Juno 21, entitled
"A Question of Fact," giving statistics
to dlsprovo the Republican platform's
statement that a Democratic tariff has
always been followed by business ad
versity, a Republican by prosperity.
Author of Platform.
Mr. Williams continued: Rcmembr
that tho author of tho Republican plat
form Is, or pretends to bo, a historian.
This la true, no matter which of two
suspected parlies be guilty of It, the res
ident or Senator Lodge. Tho voice was
undoubtedly the voice o the Massachu
setts Jacob, but the hand may have been
tha hand of the Presidential Ksnu. But
both knew tho facts. Wo arc called upon
In the Republican platform "not to falter"
In our alleglenc3 to protectionism, when
tho only free-trade country In the worlo
Js agitating a return to protection. Thla
has refcrenco to Chambcrlnlnlsm In Groat
Britain. Tho author forgot to say that
what Is really being agitated In Great
Britain Is retaliation against protectionist
countries by a proposed system of legis
lation to contain as Uttlo protectionism as
is possible. He also neglected to stato
that tho movement has signally fallpd.
and that It would not have had a leg to
aland on but for tho enmity created In
tho minds of many British subjects by
our trade legislation, lie also neglected to
say that the supreme ovll of protection
ism Is the excitation of this spirit of en-
Imity anu commercial war. Perhaps the
richest piece of humor In tho Republican
platform Is whero It Is said, "We have
extended widely our foreign market," and
In another place. "We conquered new
markets and created n volume of exports
which far surpass imagination." The
"we" in each sentence Is the corner-stone
of tho humor of It. They might Just ns
well say that a mou had a -glit to boast
that ho had Increased the current of a
river by putting a dam In It. becauso
the current had not fltopnd. but gone on
over the dam the man who would at
tribute the current to the fact that the
dam was In the river, or to the fact that
he had placed any other obstruction there,
would not be a greater fool than he who
would attribute an Increase of Interna
tional commerce to the operation of a
policy attempting vitally to oostruct It.
"Ideal Protective Policy."
A perfectly Ideal protective policy would
be ono which did not admit a single pos
sible competing product of another coun
try to the "protected" market. In so for
ns protectionism falls short of that re
sult It Is a failure from a protectionist
standpoint. Tho non-admls3lon of the
producls of other countries Into your own
markets and tho refusal to purchase from
others does not tend to make them purchase-
from you. whatever else It docs.
Ar Mr. McKlnley snld: "We a-innot al
ways continue to sell without buvlng."
Plainly, our foreign commerce has grown
not because of. but In spUe of. the ob
structions which have been nlaccd in the
current of trade. How ridiculous a boaBt
it is. too.' In connection with the llat
foolcd refusal of tho Republican party
In the Senate to approve the reolpro:lty
treaties instituted and completed bv Mr.
McKlnley and sent to that body bv him
for approval, especially the Highly "bene
ficial reciprocity treaty with France, nnd
in thi teeth of the refusal of the Re
publican Administration to take any Ini
tiatory step looking toward the recon
vening of tho Joint high commission for
reciprocal relations between Canada and
ourselves! Could complacent and rccklejs
effrontory have gone further than it has
gone In making this statement? There is
a succeeding statement, however, which
will vie with It. It Is where the platform
favors "commercial reciprocity wherever
reciprocal arrangements cun bo effected
without Injury to American agriculture,
American labor or any American Indus
try." Quotes His Own Speech,
The word "any" Is good In that connec
tion What a stop cog that Is to tho turn
ing of the wheel of American reciprocity.
Think of ItB full Import.
"Injury 1 Is good In that connection, too.
It nil depends upon what Is meant by tho
word. If the nudioncc will excuse mo for
eiuoilng myself I. will read what an lner
view contained on that subject:
"If the phrase means anything, It means
this, that the Republican party Is not wlll-
K V ..-...v.j ""bii unit .-ir
for the produco of our farms, mines, for
C5ts or oven manufactures abroad, If in
return for them it .shall bo construed to
nrtmlt competition with even the least of
our Industries 'any' artlcleK of foreign
growth or production Judging by Senator
Lodge's record. In opposition to tho French
Tfclproclty treaty, which was Initiated,
completed and sent to Senate by President.
McKlnley, It would mean that tho Repub
llcan party would refuse, If they were of
fered, greatly extended markets for West
crn and Southern and Mlddlo States' prod
uets if thereby it were threatened to cut
clown fi por cent of the possible chnrges of
a Massachuseijs cotton knitting mill "
This construction of (ho plank Is In
keeping, too, with the utterances of Mr.
Dalzell of Pennsylvania, perhaps tho most
highly accredited floor leader of the Re
publican pnrty, who, amid an outburst of
Republican applause, said on the floor of
B tho House that tho Republican party
H would not have reciprocity excopt "In non-
competing articles." He and his col
leagues upon the Republican rldo wcro
B then challenged to name a single articles
B produced anywhero In tho world that either
was not produced or could not be produced
somewhere in some of the States or Tcrrl-
H torles. or "appertinent appendages" under
tho Stars and Stripes. Of course this, If It
means anything, means that thcro is to be
no sort of reciprocity at. all. I venture my
head that Mr. Dalzell lo delighted with
Then there Is cunningly concealed In the
B Republican platform the hydra head of
yet a worso form of special legislation,
H namely, by direct subsidy tdklng money
H out of tho treasury and handing it over
H bodtly to a special class in this case the
H class of ship-builders and ship-owners.
H It will be noted also that the Republican
H party was not quite brave enough to say
H "out loud" what It wanted and Intended
B to do. This ship oubsldy plank Is bol-
Btered by tho usual false statement, this
time In innuendo, that the English mer-
chant marine tho most prosperous of all
H Is dependent upon subsidies. Every dollar
1 paid by the English Governmont to own-
H ers for private ships Is for earring tho
B mails and Is paid to the lowest bidder, and
foreign ships aro permitted to bid. "How
H a plain tale doth put them down."
H I sny Ik Is tho worst form of special legls-
H latlon, because It Is naked and wjthout
H hypocrisy, and hypocrisy Is the reverence
H which vice pays to virtue. An indirect sub-
H sidy Ukb protectionism is at least veiled
H with the pretense of being necccsary taxa-
H tlon and that hides Hh enormity from tha
H public view. Things have almost reached
B the old decadent days of tho Roman rc-
public, whon government consisted chiefly
In distributing broad and giving circuses,
H Tho worst of all this is that it Is sought
H to -be justified, like protectionism, upon
H the pretext that It is dono for the benefit
H of "American labor."
H If you want to give labor by legislation
B pancm ct clrcensea, why not give it d(-
rcctly? If you are going to tako jnoney
V out of tho treasury In order to Increase tho
remuneration, why not do It frankly and
H .honestly? If your object In a ship sub-
B sidy 1b to Increase tho wages of tho sall-
J ore. why not decide upon tho percentage
of Increase advlsablo, make the appropria-
H tlon nnd pay it over to tho sailors thom-
H selves. It would bo moro Juutlflable to
B pass a law to give every sailor and man
and woman In tho United Slates earning
les3 than ono dollar a day an Increase ot
BO per cent than It would be by protection
ism or ship subsidy to prtend to have that
end In view, while the money raised from
consumers by laxallon, lnslcady of being
paid directly ovor to the laborer, who con
stitutes tho pretext to whose fingers most
of It and sometimes all of It sticks. Ro
publicans say that the law Will mnko the
corporations "ublo to pay hlghor wages."
Who Is going to Intercede effectively with
the Almighty to mako them willing to do
As to Chineso Exclusion.
Then our friends and enemies speak of
the Republican policy of Chinese exclusion,
and boast of recent legislation upon that
subject ns a reason for longer slaying In
office. Again no mention of salient facts,
to wit: That proviso presontcd by Mr. Hill
to continue oy legislation tho exclusion
policy of tho Chineso treaty about to ex
pire, nor of the Democratic lender on the
floor to speak In Its advocacy Tho dlr
ference between the two parties when they
vote for the Chinese exclusion Is tills.
Democrats vote In accordance with tho
tradition and principles of tho party. Dem
ocrats, as a rule, make no dlsgulso of tho
fact that they want to retain this coun
try, as far as possible, as a homo for the '
white mnn and a nursery for his civiliza
tion, and that they desire, as far as pos
sible, to have a homogenous population
so when thoy vouj to exclude the Chineso
they cast a Democratic vote. Republicans
voting tho same way antagonize the pro
fessions which thoy thomsolvcs made in
connection with other radical questions.
Thy ulso profeEs, as a party, to bcllovo
that men are equal and ought to resolve
equal governmental and Bdclal recogni
tion, regardless of race. Whon tho Repub
licans have votctl for Chinese oxcluslon
they have cast a good vote, a wlso one,
but undoubtedly an un-Republlcnn one.
Certainly If It be wrong to discriminate at
nil becauso of race. If tho professions of
adherence to the doctrine that all men of
nil races riro equal, be sincere then tho
men making that profession cannot voto
to prevent a yellow man from earning a
living by tho sweat of his brow In Ameri
ca; the right to ea.rn a living being a much
more sacred and Inallenablo and God-glvon
thing than the statutory prlvllego of vot
ing or tho eoclal provision of touching
Equal Treatment for All
"Wo pledge ourselves to insist on just
and equal treatment of our citizens
abroad," says the Republican platform,
and In another place. "Jt Is a duty to pro
cure for all our citizens, without distinc
tions, the rights of travol and sojourn In
friendly countries." True. true. I say 'a
Daniel come to Judgment, but our fellow
citizens of Russian birth and Jewish ex
traction who cannot procure from the
Stato department a passport to revisit
Russia without being cautioned that they
will not be protected there, will read this
part of the Republican platform, consider
ing Its source, with singular astonishment.
It seems rather strango for a party In full
possession of all branches of tho Govern
ment, just upon the verge of a Presidential
election, to profess an Intention of doing
for tho first tlrno that which has not been
dono and which is not now being dono. If
the Democracy goes Into power It will ho
In accordance with grand ante-bellum rec
ord of that party to declaro "all over tho
world that a duly authenticated passport
Issued by the Government of the United
States to an American citizen shall bo
proof of the fact that ho is an American
citizen and shall entitle him to tho treat
ment due him ns such." It would be sin
cere coming from us.
The Republican platform, to sum It all
up, obeys tho precept to "stand pat" In
every respect except one, and that Is one
which well enough might have been left
alone. Tho plank Is this language Is used:
Wo favor such congressional action as
shall determined whether by special dis
crimination the elective franchise !n any
Slate has been constitutionally limited,
followed by the promlso made, In that
evont, to reduce Southern representation
In the House of Representatives and In
the electoral college. Tho pledge is to
reduce representation If It Is found that
tho suffrage has been "constitutionally
limited." The only "unconstitutional lim
itation" would be In violation of the fif
teenth amendment, "becauso of race, color
or previous condition of servitude." "Un
constitutionally limited." The adverb "un
constitutionally" is useless nnd fools no
body, and especially when one remembers
that the author of the phrase, or at least
tho voice that read It, was tho author of
1 the old "force bill."
Whether or not tho suffrago has boon
"unconstitutionally limited" Is a matter
for tho courts to determine, and a repre
sentative of a Republican committee on
elections In the last Congress so con
fessed It. If a man bo "unconstitutional
ly" denied the suffrage, then, If a deter
mination to that effect he can vote, that
Je his romedy and the right romcdy. Hav
ing votes, of course, thero could bo no
reduction of representation on this ac
count. But tho adverb deceives nobody,
as I Bay. The real object of tho Repub
lican party. In so far as that plank Is
concerned, however specious the phrase
ology In which It is clothed. Is to reduce
Southern representation without reducing
that of Massachusetts and other States,
wherever In the South negroes are dis
franchised, not as such but becauso of
Ignorance, by an educational qualification
or because of any other right reason, in
any other constitutional way. Disfran
chisement of a negro In Mississippi for Ig-
ment of a whlto man for Ignorance In
MnsnachUBotts or Connecticut is a part
of New England higher education.
When Eoosovelt Is Elected.
Let not tho business interest of the coun
try deceive Itself; let thoso controlling It
prepare If Roosevelt Is elected on this
platform, for another period of uncertain
ty, unrest, business disturbance and race
war In the Southern States, Instead of
that peace and prosperity which both
races now enjoy and which has been ron
dered possible only by homo rulo and by
whlto supremacy. Let tho South not de
ceive Itself, either. If tho Republican
party Is sincere in its proposition to re
duco Southern representative on tho
grounds of disfranchisement or pretend
ed "unconstitutional limitation," Itself. It
would accompany tho proposition with
another, to wit, the proposition to repeal
tho liftcenth amendment,
Duplicity Is Charged.
Their duplicity Is shown In this: They
wish to maintain tho fifteenth amendment,
which forbids tho negro for racial rea
sons from being disfranchised, and, acting
on the pretense that he Is for racial rea
sons disfranchised, thoy would have the
negro not counted as a basis of represen
tation In tho Southern States, where ho
chlolly resides. It Is not tho white man,
as a white man, who la injured by a recur
rence ot tho pendency of force bill days
he can and will always maintain hlmsolf.
It is business, commerce, manufacturing,
agriculture and tho negro himself Com
mercially and industrially, tho white man
of tho South will not be much more In
jured by thl3 sort of agitation than North
ern people will be. The mercantile class
would be the first to suffer, but as they
owe debts to tho North and buy In the
North, and as nearly everything thoy sell
is manufactured In thcv North, they would
ont bo nlone in their sufferings,
This Is but tho entering wedgo to a now
period of "Southern reconstruction." It
is the beginning over of the old scheme,
revived for political advantage, to retain
as a Republican asset tho solid negro
voto of Indiana, Illinois, New Jersey and
Ilka conditioned States this time without
price In money paid by disturbing all
over the Southland peace and order, and
unsettling business, and as a remoto of
fect, if successful, hybridizing tho race
thero and Africanizing Its civilization.
That Is the ultlmato significance of it all,
If.Mndccd, it be not merely "a voice in
tho wilderness," crying out empty prom
ises to tho nogro voters in tho doubtful
States. 'I wish I could believe It was only
that. I would believe it but for tho opin
ionated and supcrstrcnuous oharacter of
"tho man in tho White house," How email
In comparison would tho Immedlato and
ultlmato slgnlflcanco of a more partisan
victory cither way compared with the nec
essary and natural results of this revived
"What Was the Lesson.
In keeping with all this, consider the
negro Santo Bambino scene In the Repub
lican National convention, the wild adora
tion of "my little Alabama coon." or was
It Georgia coon? Why was it all thus all
prearranged nnd "by whom? Why wcro the
two little white girls placed on tho samo
platform with tho Uttlo negro boy to
inarch around carrying flags? Who pre
tends that it was accidental? What was
the pretended lesson to be taught? What
is tho subtle symbolical meaning of It all?
Is It a meaning which only whlto Ro pub
licans dnro to put In words? Or Is It a
meaning to bo guessed at, and to bo left
to negro oratorB, speaking to negro audi
ences, to put In words Buch as nro adapt
ed to negro races, traltB, tendencies and
longslngs? But enough of the other par
ty; some things about ourselves.
Eulbgl7.es Unnamed Candidate.
One thing tho country can rely upon:
The Democracy will nominate for Pres
ident a mnn trained in tho ways of tho
constitution, who will not UBurp legisla
tive or Judicial functions; who will ntrt
lecklcsslv violate International usages,
even with the weakest Nation, no matter
how tempting tho profits to be reaped by
It; who will not keep peoplo guessing
about what ho Is golDg to do or say next;
It will nominate him upon a platform Ig
noring dead Issues and dealing with crv
orv present live lssuo In tones certain and
unmlstnkeable; favoring economy of ad
ministration, enforcement of honesty In
the public Hervlce, a wise nnd business
like revision and reduction of tho tariff
by tho friends of the masses and of the
Commonwealth, and not by tariff bene
ficiaries and their representatives alone,
a reduction of which shall aim at quality
of burdens and equality of opportunities
nnd whoso ultimate object shall bo to
raise a revenue by taxation to support tho
Federal Government In virility, In sim
plicityan object to bo reached In a busl-ncss-llke,
dlscusslvo and common-senso
way, with duo regard to existing condl
rlons, and by steps constituting In them
selves an object lesson for their own Justi
fication nnd for the Justification of fur
What Platform Will Say.
It will not falter when It comes to de
claring for a reduction o tariff, reduction
on trust-produced articles to tho point
where foreign competition may enter tho
American market, when combines raise
tho price to the American consumer to
Ihe point of extortion, nor will it falter in
declaring for reduction whero American
concerns habitually chargo American con
sumers higher prices than thoso charged
foreigners for Identical ai'tlcles. It will
come out flnt-footed for amicable rather
than retaliatory trade relations with tho
other Nations of tho world, and especially
for genorous reciprocity with Cannela.
Bcckless Utterances Denounced.
It will denounce tho needless and reck
less utterances of the candidate of the
Republican partv for President In hla let
ter to ex-Secretary Root upon tho sec
ond nnnlvcrsnry of Cuban Independence.
It will nnnounce In no unmistakable way
tUn wn hnvn nn flllf' rtt flllV MlTl tO "ill -
tervene in" In the National affairs of
other countries, "because they do not
conduct themselves well." or becauso
"they do not know how to net with de
cency In Industrial and political matters,"
or becauso they "do not keep order," or
because they "do not pay their obliga
tions." We will announce unmistakably
to the world and to the Nations of Eu
rope that we will not mako of the army
and navv of tho United States a constab
ulary for the collection of debts In tho
Govcrnmen8 of peoples of South and Cen
tral America. Whero Is the "brutal
wrong-doing or lmpotcncy which arises In
a general loosening of tho tics of civilized
socletv?" Tho American people will re
gret It nnd will extend every aid In the
way of enlightenment nnd example to
the peoplo thus living In darkness, but
they docllno to administer the affairs of
ouch peoples or to take upon the United
States treasury tho burden of their In
Treatment of Cuba.
A Democratic Administration will Ilnd
In our treatment of Cuba an example of
American courage, justlco and magna
nimity, an example to bo Imitated as soon
ns It can be wisely and safely done In
the Philippines, ultimately promise now
thus to leave them, free and Independ
ent to work out their own destiny In ac
cordance with their own race traits, ten
dencies nnd capabilities. Tho Democracy.
In my opinion, believes that the white
man will have trouble enough to main
tain his full Integrity and tho white man's
clvlllatlon in all parts of his own coun
try, and It Is neither his duty nor his
right to superimpose hi civilization by
force upon tho brown man In tho brown
man's country. A Democratic President
he whom wo Bhall nomlnntc shall de
voto himself to the faithful execution of
tho laws of tho United States as they aro
written, without executive interpretation
or usurpation, whether uiul?r the pre
text of necessity or tho pretext of su
perior wisdom, and will leave to tho leg
islative branch of the Government the
duty of making and unmaking and
More Brash Promises. v
A Democratic Administration once in
power will put an end, ns far as It can
be done, and as quickly as possible, to all
existing Iniquitous partnership arrange
ments between tho Federal Government
and favored special Interests. It will re
duce the revenues of the General Gov
ernment to a sum adequate to the needs
exf economical and Constitutional admin
istration, plus a safe working margin for
contingencies which cannot be foreseen.
It will speak out unmistakably against
the Republican policy of starving home
development In order to leed the school
boy npnetlto of National prestige and
mere display of strength. It will bring
about the upbuilding of A. merchant ma
rine, and bring It about without new or
additional taxation upon tho nconlc and
without bounties from tho public treas
ury, simply by a recurrence to thoso las
which wero In force when we had a
merchant marine of which every Ameri
can citizen was proud.
Under a Democratic Administration tho
rights of labor will bo recognized as no
less "vested," no le?s "sacred," no less
"Inalienable" than the rights of capital,
and both will be dealt with Justly and
Impartially according to their right. Tho
Democratic party will not hypocritically
pretend to sympathize with thoso who de
sire or with those who would not by all
lawful and Constitutional means prevent
the Africanization or Mongollzatlon of
any Stato or community within tho
bounds of tho American Republic
Under the treaty with tho Ropubllc of
Panama, which was rendered possible
only by Democratic votes In tho Senate
of tho United States, votes very difficult
for Democrats to cast because of the man
ner In which tho mushroom Republic was
ushered Into the world, the Democracy,
"when entrusted with power, will construct
tho Panama canal speedily, honcstlv and
economically, thereby giving to our peo
plo what Democrats have always con
tended for, a great Intcroccanlc canal,
furnishing shorter and cheaper lines of
transportation and better and less tram
meled traffic relations with the peoples
of tho world.
However ahnmefully tho Panama, Re
public was born, and howevor shameful
our connection with It, it was born and
Is now recognized by us and by the other
civilized Nations of the world as an ex
isting international entity, an Independ
ent Government on the surface of tho
earth. In other words. It too Is an ac
complished fact. With it. as the only
power having sovereignty ind ownership,
wo wero compollcd to negotiate a treaty
for the acquisition of a strip of land to
be used for the construction of tho Pan
ama canal. If wo were to acquire It at
alL Entering Into a treaty with the Re-
Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After Ten
Years of Suffering.
"I wish to say a few words In
praiso of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy," says Mrs.
Mattle Burge. of Martinsville, Va. "I
suffered from chronic diarrhoea for ten
years and during that time tried vari
ous medicines without obtaining any
permanent relief. Last summer one
of my children was taken with cholera
morbus, and I procure a bottle of this
remedy. Only two doses were required
to givo her entire relief. I then decided
to try the medicine myself, and did not
use all of one bottle before I was well
and I have never since been troubled
with that complaint. One cannot say
too much in favor of that wondorful
medicine." This remedy is for sale by
all loading druggists.

untold benefits of a Irnnslsthmlan canal,
no more smirches us with tho shame of
the manner of Its Dotting up as a mush

tradltlon treaty with Rnssia, Austria or
Prussia would besmirch us with tho
shame of tho partition of Poland.
But Can It Be GoodP
Above all and in conclusion, a good
Democratic Administration will ponelor
and prnctlco tho slmpio precejJta of Jef
ferson's first Inaugural address. It Is tho
political "Sermon on tho Mount" for
Gontlemcn, Ic la In tho power of no man
or party to assure success. It Is .in tho

character of our candidate, de.HOrvo It.
Let un erect a stajidnrd to which all good

mittee then unanimously elected
Charles Walsh of Iowa, secretary of the
National commlttco, as permanent sec
rotary of the convention. All other of
ficers of tho temporary organization
were mode permanent, and the commit

When Senator Bailey was Informed
of his election" he announced at once
that lie could not accept, as he desired
to bo on the floor when tho platform
Is under discussion. He Is expected to
combat any attempt from the Bryan
forces to inject Into the plutform
planks whioh do not meet the approval
of t he committee. Therefore, his
declination of the chairmanship was
Senator Bailey argued that the chair
manship should be given to Mr. Clark,
and a committee, consisting of William
F. Sheelum and P. H. McCarrcn of the
New York delegation called upon him
nt the Southern hotel and made the
tender. Mr. Clark answered that he
was engaged to put the name of Sena
tor Cockrell In nomination for the
Presidency and, therefore, would have
to be on the floor during the conven
tion. He was urged to reconsider, and
finally agreed to send a telegram to
Senator Cockrell to the effect that the
place had been offered him. If Sena
tor Cockrell makes no objection, Mr.
Clark will accept.
In view of the certainty that Parker
will he nominated, it is believed that
Senator Cockrell will ask that his name
withdrawn. In the event Senator
Cockrell's friends insist on presenting
his name to the convention, It is
thought the nominating speech will bo
made by some other member of the Mis
souri delegation. Mr. Clark would then
be free to accept the chairmanship.
WHO FOR VICE-PRESIDENT?
Several Names Aro Suggested, In
cluding Thrco From tho
ST. 'lOUIS, Mo., July C The Vlcc
Presldentinl situation was tersely
sketched by MaJ. Monzles of Indiana,
himself a Vice-Presidential possibility,
when he said tonight: "We will finish
tho nomination of a Presidential candi
date before we go to warring about the
second placo on the ticket. Like the
lamented father of Immortal "Huckle
berry Finn," our motto is "Meat first,
and spoon vltales afterward."
There was enough of gossip to satis
fy, but aside from the movement In be
half of George Turner of Washington,
there was no well-defined Vlcc-Prcsl-dentlal
boom. A flurry resulted from
tho report, early In the ovenlng, that
James II. Eckles of Illinois, had begun
a active fight for Judge Johnson Har
mon, but the Harmon people declaro
the story absurd and asserted that
Harmon had already positively and fi
nally declined to accept anything but
first place on the ticket.
Thero was a good deal of talk during
the afternoon and evening favorable to
Representative Williams of Illinois, and
throughout the day ho was, next to
Turner, perhaps, the most frequent
mentioned of the long list of Vice-Presidential
possibilities. The Washington
delegation wa confident of the nomin
ation of its favorite, but many of the
Middle West delegates declared them
selves opposed to the selection of a man
from tho far West
A. E. Stevenson of Illinois, Mr. Bry
an's la9t running mate, was talked of
for a time but It was declared that he
would not accept the nomination. The
Indiana delegation was divided In senti
