Opinions smong the Democrats as to
what should bedone by the Baltimore
convention, both In regard to the nomi
nee for President and the platform, dif
fer widely. Many Democrats acknowl
edge frankly that much will depend on
the results of the Republican convention
The 'Washington Herald has sought to
obtain the -views of many Influential
Democrats In the National Capital as
to what should be done by the Baltimore
convention and as to the party's pros
pects In the coming campaign. This
views will be published from time to
time In The Herald.
(Senator Isldor Baynor of Maryland
prepared the following statement of his
views as to the probable Issues: t
"First I am satisfied that wo will
again make the tariff the leading lssue-of '
the campaign, and will again stand upon
cur historic ground of a tariff for revenue
as against a atrirr for protection.
"Second The Democratic party Trill, al
most to a certainty. In its platform re
solve in favor or the election of United
States Senators by the people.
"Third It may be taken for granted
that we will take our stand, as- wb have
always done, upon the constitutional
ground that the. reserved right of the
States must be kept Intel and protected
against the usurpation of Federal en
croachment. Same Old Flanks.
Fourth In view of what has taken
place under pervious administrations, we
ought, and I believe ire Trill, proclaim
that this Is not an executive government.
that the President Is limited to bis con
stitutional functions, the Cabinet officers
wtU not be premltted to Institute a bu
reaucracy above the law, but that, they
can be held strictly accountable to Con
gress as weyy as they can to the Presi
dent, for the faithful performance of their
"Fifth When 'we come to the system
known as the Initiative and referendum.
if this sysUm could never come In vogue
under the Federal Constitution, It Is
doubtful whether the convention wfll en
ter upon Its discussion, except perhaps to
say that each State should have the un
questioned right to adopt the system If It
comports with Its environment and metts
with the approval of its people.
"Sixth The recall of judges. I appre
hend, will not meet with Democratic
support To recall judges whenever
their opinions are not In accord with
popular fancy or popular passion, would
be a dangerous innovation.
"Seventh Of course, no heed will be
given by either party to 'the chaotic
conception of the recall of decisions, as
we may reasonably Infer that the con
ventions of both parties will be swayed
by the rule of reason.
"Eighth The Democratic convention
will undoubtedly declare that the law
against monopoly and unlawful combina
tions must be impartially enforced, so
that no 'President of the United States
shall at any time hereafter have the
power to select enterprises that are car
ried on In violation of law and grant
them Immunity from Its penalties be
cause their policies are In accord with
the policy of his administration.
For Direct Primaries.
"Ninth Above all and everything, how
ever, I believe will come the declaration.
in unmistakable terms, that the people
have the right to nominate their candi
dates for public oHce: that the day
over when political leaders shall have the
right to select their candidates for them

ALL-DAY TEST OF
Boston, Mass., May IX Clarence V. T.
Rlcheson, former Baptist minister, under
sentence of death, spent several hours to
day In an Insanity test conducted by Gov.
Foss' board ot experts. The prisoner was
taken from his cell to the muslo room in

not return until late in the day. He ate
two hearty meals during the test, and at

TWO STEAMEBS STILL ASHORE.
Leyland Liner Floated In Harbor of
Panama. May li Reports received here
from Cartagena, Colombia, say that the
Ley land Line steam ship Worklngman,
which went ashore In trying to aid the
steamship Arcadian, which also was
stranded, has been floated.
The Royal Mall steam packet Arcadian
and the United Fruit Company's steam
ship Uetapan, both of which went ashore
while attempting to aid the Arcadian,
are still aground on the Balms dena
Bank. The wrecking ship Premier has left
Kingston. Jamaica, to render assistance.
It Is feared that It will be' some days
before the Arcadian gets off, owing to
her heavy tonnage. The Arcadian Is in
almost the same position as the steam
ship Trent, also a Royal Mall boat, which
went aground three years ago. It re
quired several weeks to get the Trent off.
