Mr. Bryan's Platform.
Mr. Bryan's latest declaration of prin
ciples need surprise nobody. He has al
ways been more populist than democrat.
There lias not been a day in the past
twelve years when he could not have ac
cepted a straight-out populist nomination
for President. His vote for Weaver in 181*2.
though cast, as tie claims, by the advice of
the national democratic leaders, was easy
for him. He is simply Improving an op
portunity to free his mind on subjects
which for some time have been dear to
him. And we understand now why men
like Watson and Allen and Jerry Simpson
have trusted him so implicitly and support
ed him so cordially. As they could see. he
was their leader.
" All of this entered into the campaigns of
lMMi and 1000. Those who opposed Mr.
Bryan in his contests for the presidency
took accurate account of what his success
at the polls would mean. Silver was in
the forefront, but stalking close behind
were public ownership of railroads and
telegraphs, an income tax. a reorganization
of the federal Judiciary, and all the rest
of the populist propaganda. Mr. Bryan In
the White House would be a powerful
agent for pushing along a revolution in na
tional afTairs. Hence the readiness and
openness with which life-long democrats
parted company with him. and gave their
support to the republicans. They were
voting not only against the debasement of
the currency, but against the inauguration
of state socialism.
It is not easy to follow Mr. Bryan in his
reasons for supporting Judge Parker if he
really desires him to win. The influences
that would surround Judge Parker rn the
White House would be as much opposed to
Mr. Bryan's state socialism as against dis
turbing the gold standard. That is to say.
the influences that suggested the sending of
the gold telegram to the St. Louis conven
tion would war with all vigor against pub
lic- control of railroads and telegraph lines
and :ui income tax.. Why, then, should Mr.
Bryan lie counseling his friends east or
west to help put in power a man who would
use power to obstruct the very ends to
which Mr. Bryan has freshly committed
himself? Why strengthen the fortress
against which Mr. Bryan announces a pur
pose immediately to move?
If the peerless leader's support of the St.
Louis ticket is not "loaded" it at least sug
gests such a thing: and a support that re
quires a minute explanation and an expla
nation that doesn't explain, are not very
desirable articles in a stirring campaign.
Francis M. Coclcrell.
In Instructing for Mr Cockrell yesterday
for another term In the Senate, the Missouri
democrats t?^ok action 'iilite as praise
worthy as in nominating Mr. Folk for gov
ernor. A democr atic majority in the legis
lature is altogether probable, and so. if lie
lives. Mr. Cockrell will receive his sixth
consecutive commission as senator from
that state. The honor Is great, but it has
been well deserved. The recipient is sev
enty years old. but is not an old man in
either appearance or action, and his serv- i
ices are as valuable'to hi* constituents and
to his party as they have at any time I
been. He holds a prominent place in the
Senate, and h's Influence there is as great
as that of any member of his party tn
that body.
Mr. Cockrell's service as senator goes
back to the time when tlie democracy first
began to show recovery from the disasters
of the war. He succeeded Carl Schurz. an
independent republican, and took his seat
March 1, lS7r>. The year before his party
had elected a majority in the House of
Representatives, and wis now preparing
for the presidential contest of the year to
follow. In that contest it polled a heavy
"ote. and although losing the race it re
tired In-goou comnilon. and was now reeog
n zed as a party of vigorous opposition. The
new senator from Missouri soon impress, d
himself on the country as a man of force,
and lias since steadily grown in the public
respect. His qualities are substantial rather
than showy, and are very valuable in the
arena where they have so long been em
ployed.
The mention of Mr. Cockrell's name in
connection with the St. Louis nomination
for President w is only a personal compli
ment, but it w;cs generally conceded that
he was of presidential size, and we may
Well believe that except that lie was out of
line geographically and had been promi
nent in the confederacy he would have
tlgurad seriously rn the contest. Such a
man living in Indiana. Illinois, or New
York would h.rve had a very strong claim
on the attention of his party in connection
with Its highest prize. But. as it is. to be
assured practically of a life tenure In the
Senate-for that is the meaning of his sixth
nomination the seventh and eighth will fol
low in season- is in honor which probably
fully satisfies Mr. Cockrell's ambition.
The portraits of the democratic presiden
tial candidate have become so numerous
that it is feared the photographers hive
been trespassing on time which might liave
been applied to the letter of acceptance.
Southern Appointments.
The New York Sun. In reviewing an arti
cle by an Knglish visitor on the political
situation ui this country, says:
"Our KnglUh visitor also learned during
his sojourn in this country another ind s
putabl - fact -namely, that one of McKin
ley's great -a achievements was his loosen
ing of the bonds that had ti-d tie southern
states In whir hail b-en accounted an In
dissoluble ali ance to the democratic party.
In what v\ is once slave territory. McKin
ley carried l>-law ire, Maryland. We-t Vir
ginia and Kentucky, be.-, d s lowering the
democratic m iJorit\ to 1 ? than In
each of southern st ites On the
other hand Mr K.ios'velt. as 'Anglo-Amer
ican nas been correctly told, his, by some
acts of a I aiost gratuitous clumsiness, re
store ! that al lain e to Its old rigidity, and
in doing so lias arousal a bitterness of
racial pis-ion in the south unequaled since
the li .rrors of the reconstruction period.
"Noi -thill we nu iirr-l w.th the comment
that the mischief has been caused not
more bv tin- thing done than by the Irri
tating w?y of doing it It is true that Mc
Kinley appointed more negroes to office
than his Mr. Roosevelt. But. even in such
appointments, the former evinced personal
and political tact."
As a matter of fact the democratic na
tional convention.of l*r.HS. and not Mr. Mc
Klnley. "loosened the bonds that had tied
the southern states In what had been ac
counted an Indissoluble alii tnce to the
democratic party." It w s the free s:lvor.
free riot deliverance of that year that gave
Kentu ky, Maryland. West Virginia and
Delaware to the republicans, and that cat
down the democratic vote tn the c ties ot
other southern states. Business and pro
fessional men who had always 8.ttlliated
with the democracy refused by the thou
sands to support their party's candidates
on such a platform. AnJ it m.y be said
with entire safety that had the St. Louis
convention reaffirmed the money plank ot
the Kansas* City platform the same rote
that gave the four states named to the
republicans In 1SK5 would easily have
turned the scale in republican favor next
November. Even as matters stand, with
Judge Parker declaring for the gold
standard, enough gold democrats, noting
Mr. Bryan's power at St. Louis, are an
nouncing for Roosevelt to give the repub
licans In Maryland. West Virginia and
Delaware hopes of success.
A number of Mr. McKinley's southern
appointments were Indefensible, and sev
eral were so bad they would have ruined
a man less firmly grounded In the respect
of the country. They were denounced by
the southern press and people in the se
verest terms. Neither personal rlt>r polit
ical tact, although Mr. McKinley was a
master of tact, played the slightest part in
the premises. The President was paying
campaign debts contracted by others, and
however repulsive they may have been to
him he made no sign at the time, and no
apologies when the storms broke.
Mr. Roosevelt's southern appointments
have, in the main, been good, and many of
them represent the advice of southern dem
ocrats with whom the President had con
sulted. They are, as a whole, greatly su
perior to those of his predecessor.
Bad Faith in Chicago.
Tlie sudden resumption of the beef strike
f.o quickly after Its settlement, with ^ery
prospect of continued peace comes as a
shock to the public, not wholly, however,
on the score of the possibility of continued
high prices for meat. This showing of bad
faith shakes the people's confidence in the
honest purpose of the strikers to return
to work. As the case is reported today
from Chicago the worklngmen have as
sumed the full responsibility of precipitat
ing the troubles anew, although they assert
that the resumption of the strike is due to
the violation by the packers of the agree
ment entered Into day before yesterday.
That agreement contained the following
clauses:
"The packing companies signing this
agreement to retain all employes now at
work who wish to remain, and will re
employ all employes now out as fast as
possible without discrimination, employes
to return to work at the wages received
when going on strike, pending the decision
of the arbitrators. Any former employe
not re-employed within forty-live days from
the date work is resumed to have the
privilege of submitting his or her case to
arbitration on question of discrimination,
decision of arbitrators to govern."
When the men reported this morning
they were confronted by a notice to the
effect that the companies could not re
employ more than half of the old force.
The non-union men who had been engaged
during the strike were taken in. and the
union men indignantly refused to go to
work unless all were taken. That would
mean the dismissal of every non-union man
in the establishments. The strikers deliv
ered an ultimatum couched in these terms,
and soon afterward the strike was declared
once more on the ground that the packers
had violated the agreement.
The impartial public, in the face of these
facts, is likely to lose confidence In the
cause of unionism. The packers agreed to
re-employ all the old men for whom they
could find places, and the strikers on tiieir
part agreed that the packers should for
the present retain their non-union employes.
The very provision of a time limit of forty
five days indicated the expectation that
some of the union men would he forced to
wait awhile for employment. And in
the very face of that bargain the workers
insist upon the dismissal of every non
unionist at once and the re-engagement of
the entire striking force. There would
seem to l>e absolutely no ground whatever
for the renewed strike save in the ruthless
selfishness and bad faith of the men.
Missouri.
Mr. Folk's nomination for governor, Iods
forecast, is highly creditable to the demo
crats of Missouri, and the platform upon
which he stands, in its bearings upon local
conditions, is a brave deliverance.
The candidate is a young man of genuine
force, and. not unlikely, will come in time
to national station and influence. It must
be said, however, that the placing of such a
man as S. B. Cook is described as being on
the same ticket for the important office of
secretary of state looks a little like double
dealing. If we may believe public gossip
and even open charges, Mr. Cook is not of
the Folk type by any means, and his ap
pearance as a candidate will lend a sharp
point to th? republican campaign.
Judge Parker and ex-Senator Davis are
said to be highly pleased with each other
after their first meeting at Esopus. So
long as Bryan, Hill. Gorman. Cleveland
and other prominent democrats manage to
be temporarily reconciled, there is no ex
cuse for the two principals In the cam
paign to start a quarrel.
President Roosevelt's opinion as to the
fitness of Mr. Root for the governorship of
New York ought to be worth something.
He has had experience with both the man
and the office.
Mr Bill Devery came out with enthusiasm
in behalf of the striking teamsters in New
York. But he has not been very eff -ctive as
a mascot for some years.
By the time he has considered all the
questions of safety that arise, the excur
sionist is liable to find some of his holiday
enthusiasm d:ssipated.
Mr. Cleveland eulogizes Judge Parker
with perslstfnt enthusiasm, and Mr. Bryan
has placed himself In a position where he
cannot talk hark.
Mrs. Maybrick's enjoyment of her free
dom ought not to be marred by any efforts
to drag tier into the turmoil of publicity.
The real epicures of mosquitodom are
now taking up their residences near Oyster
Bay or Esopus.
Waterboy raced as if he understood the
threat to retire him from the turf unless he
won.
The Punishment ot Wife-Beaters.
A man was found guilty the other day
In the local Police Court of maltreating his
wife and was sentenced to pay a fine of
$?>."> or spend three months in jail. The
presiding judge remarked in disposing of
the case that "If every wlfe-beater was
horse-whipped good and hard there would
be more happy hoir.es." There is an eco
nomic side to this question apart from the
matter of punishment or morals or domes
tic happiness. This man is. perhaps, the
main reliance of the household. It may be
that his wife supports him. which is fre
quently the case in his social range. But
giving him the benefit of the doubt, his
payment of or. falling that, his sojourn
of three months in jail must have a satl
effect upon the finances of that home. It
may mean domestic bankruptcy. It cer
tainly means harder labor for the wife for
a time, unless sne is the wage-earner and
her husband elects to take his punishment
In Jail. If he chooses to pay the fine and
she is the money-getter of the family she
will probably furnish the funds. That Is
a by no means uncommon spectacle in this
city.
Had that wlfe-beater been taken to. the
jail or workhouse and trussed to a post and
whipped "good and hard," as Judge Klm
liall said, he would have received Just dues
i and without passing the punishment down
the line to his wife and children. It is true,
he might try to "take it out" on her later,
but she would, at least, have her chance
to enter a second complaint, with the pros
pect of his receiving u harder punishment,
lie would run his own risk. These Police
Court tines often seriously disarrange the
finances of the humbler homes In the Dis
trict. There are certain offensfs that seem
especially to call for corporeal punishment.
Cruelty to humans and to animals, ma
licious mischief, persistent drunkenness and
the like might properly be visited with such
reprisals by the community that the of
fenders are less likely to repeat their per
formances. It is certainly hard on the
wife of a brute like the fellow Just in court
to have to endure both his blows and the
lass of either his wages for three months
or the amount of his fine.
Mr. Wm. K. Vanderbilt is expending
large sums of money In the purchase of
property near his New York house In order
to keep hotels from being built too near
him. But business Is hard to stop, and the
best he can hope for is a little oasis of ex
clusiveness in a desert of traffic.
Some of the copper magnates whom
Thomas Lawson Is attacking are doubtless
feeling sorry that Sir Thomas Lipton has
not come forward with any yachting prop
ositions to divert his attention.
Perhaps Russia's pride would be less in
jured if some bigger nation than Japan
were to step in and administer the defeat
which appears to threaten.
SHOOTING STABS.
True Admiration.
"Hasn't Mr. Doray a beautiful voice?"
said Maud.
"Yes," answered Mamie. "It must be
lovely to sit next to him at a base ball
game."
Scenery.
"You say he whs a famous mountain
climber?"
"Yes. That's why lie liked to be in New
York and watch them dig the subway."
Illumination.
The moon shines blandly through the
night.
It gives the soul a joyous thrill
To think of getting all that light
With no one sending in a bill.
Proficient Charles.
"Does your husband take as much inter
est In horse racing as he used to?"
"Yes." answered young Mrs. Torkins.
"Charley can always tell the day before
a race which horse ought to win and the
day after why he didn't."
A Biased View.
"Do you now appreciate the beauties of
civilization?"
"Yes," answered the barbarian. "Civil
ization is a great institution. Hut as in
the case of other large enterprises, it's
usually best to be one of the promoters
and get in 011 the ground floor."
Misplaced Energy.
There's lots o' slights that we've got to
bear.
An' lots of injustice, too.
Hut quarrels, they takes a heap o' care
Before you have seen 'em through.
An' there's honest work if you'll look
about
At home and in every clime.
It's a great temptation to tight things out.
But, fellers, we ain't got time.
There's comfort slight in the word of
spite
That's hurled from an angry tongue?
An' perhaps there's joy in a tyrant's
might
?>ur brethren weak among.
But the whole world sometimes has to
wait
Because of some selfish crime.
An' tightin's bad among small and great
'Cause, fellers, we ain't got time.
Opportunists.
From the Seattle l'ost-^uteiUgtincer.
The democratic party has demonstrated
anew that it is opportunist; that it has 110
principles, no convictions which it is not
willing to sacrifice at any moment for any
prospect of success; that it is willing to
seize any opportunity- which may be of
fered to command a few votes or gain some
element of strength; all without the slight
est regard either to its past record or to
the ultimate consequences of its actions.
This is demonstrated not merely by the de
liberate abandonment of every Issue which
it tendered in the two preceding campaigns,
but also by its present efforts to secure the
support of those industrial and' financial
combinations which it lias been attacking
heretofore, in the spirit of destruction. In
this campaign, the democratic leaders have
deliberately sought the assistance of the
great trusts and have catered to them in
the choice of their nominees. Posing here
tofore as "trust buster," they have now
realized that there is 110 political capital
to be made for them in that attitude. With
out an instant's hesitation the democratic
party has turned its back on its record
and "with the true instinct of the oppor
tunist has sought immediately the friend
ship and the assistance of those trust
leaders, many of them democrats always,
who have been antagonized by the actions
of President Roosevelt in putting the laws
In force against them.
Overcharging- for Meat.
From the Brooklyn Kagle.
If the American people had a little of
their old spirit they would rebel at the in
crease in prices of meat on the bills of fare
in some of our hotels and dining rooms.
Most of the increase has been made by
proprietors of the more pretentious places,
where large prices were already charged,
and not by the landlords whose margin
of profit was already small. An increase
of 2 or 3 cents a pound in the cost of
beef does not justify a caterer in charging
10 cents more for a half pound of It. It
is better to stay one's appetite with eggs
and lobsters than pay the overcharge. And
it Is not to be thought upon tviat a further
increase will be made for vegetables, be
cause, while an extravagant price for meat
will make vegetable food more popular,
there is no trust in potatoes and corn, and
there Is abundance of tliem. The situa
tion is not so grave that famine impends,
and It does not justify the additions that
are threatened to an already profitable scale
of prices.
Frenzy of the British Press.
From the New Vork World.
Voltaire whimsically ascribed certain surly
and disagreeable manifestations of the
English temperament to the east wind. If
his theory was correct the wind must have
been blowing a gale from the east when
the news reached London of the seizure of
the steamer Malacca by the Russian volun
teer cruiser St. Petersburg. Such a fren
zied, almost Insane outburst of popular re
sentment has not been witnessed in Eng
land since the 'confederate commissioners
were forcibly removed from the Trent. In
the Trent affair, however, there was ex
cuse for indignation, as was shown when
the American government released the com
missioners and apologized for the action of
Capt. Wilkes. In this case there is none.
The Malacca either carried contraband of
war or did not. If she did, the Russian
captain acted well within his rights. If
she did not, the British government can
obtain ample reparation by peaceful, diplo
matic processes.
Fresh Food.
From the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Can food be preserved without using adul
terants? If yes. why not do so? If no,
why not go back to the customs of our
fathers and live on fresh food?
In the Simplest Terms.
From the New York Mall.
Parker to the democratic convention:
"Please take notice that the republicans
have fixed the g61d standard for good." The
democratic convention to Parker: "Oh.
you think so, do you? Well, we'll take
that up later. Meanwhile let's get elected
to something-"
