THE FEAR OF SOCIALISM

By Walter Edward Harris.
(Speclal From a Staff Corrospondent.)
NEW YORK, Novembcr 0.?Thoso Dem
ocrnts, who conductod , tho campalgn
agalnst Roosovelt, are moro dceply im
presscd now wlth tho need of conser
vatlsm ln tho Democratlc party than
they wero when they fought for and se
cttred the nomlnatlon of Payker. Two
facts havo beon most deoply Impresscd
upon mo to-day In the courso of con
versatfona wlth Democrata of varlous
shadc3 'of bolief, one is that tho conser
vatlvo dlomcnt of tho party must strug
glo oa never beforo to provent tho pen
dultim swlnging furthor backward than
lt dld elght or four years ago. Tho other
fact was tho froquently exprcssed be
linf that a Southcrn man should be put
ttp b3r tho Democrats to make the flght
in 1908. Thore wlll be made a tremond
ous effort on the part of tho most radl?
cal elemont of "tho Domocrntlo party to
gnln control of tho organizatlon and nom
inato tho caridldato In 1908.
Thirsting for Control.
Mr. Bryan has sald openly a num
bor of tlmcs ln the post throo months
thnt lt was hoped that ho aud hls frlends
would havo control of tho organizatlon
after tho elcction. Ho has a tremendous
foilowlng In.lhe party, exclualvo of.those
(loyal Democrats who wlll support the
?tlcket nomlnated whether tno plotfonn
roprcsents thelr oxnet optnlons or not.
Whon to thls class are addod the Popu
lists and Soclallsts, dt wlll bo readlly
seen that he wlll have a most formlda
blo foilowlng, It ls casy to soo rlght
now that tho flrst groat polltical strug
glo or tho next four years wlll be be?
tween itho conservatlvo andradicail Dom
ocrncy for the control of the party or?
ganizatlon.. A most slgnlflcant fact In
connecUon with thls subject Is that men
who dld not vote thc Democratic ticket
thls year are belng put forward as falr
representaUves of tho class, which should
control the party.
Bryan's Friends Active.
I was struck wlth thls t'act to-day when
a radlcal Democrat, who hopes nnd Is
predlctlng that Bryan wlll .be nomlnated
four years hence, spoke of Tom Watson,
tho late Popullst presldentlnl candidatc,
ln tho samo breath with Bryan as a
man thoroughly representatlye of thc
hopes and thc aims of true Democracy.
There enn bo no question that the tre?
mendous majorities rccelved, by Mr.
Roosevelt iln many of the Stntes, wero
in part due to tho refusal of. many sup
portcrs of Mr. Bryan four yeai* ago
'to voto for tho Democratlc jiominee thls
year. Complete returns will show thls
even more, clcarfy than lsapparent now.
An analysls of the offlcial returns of
the electlon ls confldontly expected to
sliow that the Sociallst voto was much
larger thls year than over before. Thls
wll] bo accounted for ln pant by tho
fact that. many men who four years ago
supportcd Mr. Bryan, who has dcclared
for government ownorship pi ratlroads,
went over to the Soclallsts thls year,
tho increased Sociallst voto expected to
bo shown will also bo due largeiy to the
natural growth ln Soclallstic sentdment,
which has hecn most rcmarkable ln tho
past twonty years.
The Lines of Battle.
The growth of Soclalism ls looked upon
by conservaUvo Democrats aa probnbly
tho most portentous omen of tho great
strugglo for control of the party organ?
izatlon which must be fought out with
in. tho next four years. The long con
tlnued supremacy of tho Republlcan par?
ty and Its policy of goyernmental fa
vorltlsm of helping one ctass through
the opornitlon of tarlff laws to becomo
wealthy at tho cxpenso of the niasses
of the poople, representing consumers of
products, has had tho effect of fosterlng
tho growtn of Soclalism unlcss Mr. Rooso?
velt, ln the.courso of the next four years
should recode from hls sUmd pot attt
tudo and pennlt a revlsion of tarlff
schcdulcs, tho effects of tarlff opprcs
alon In closing our markcts abroad and
bulldlng and strengthenlng dospotic mo
nopollea at home, wlll mako radicals of
many thousands, who votod to "stand
Will Make Socialists.
I voico tho scntlmont of two of. tho
cloarest headod men ln tho Democratlc
party. wtion I say that four years more
of opprcsslon by tarlff nnd trusts wlll
mako about as many Soclallsts as Dem
ocratS'. It ls certuln that lt will mako
the radlcal eloment of tho Democratlo
party many thousawls stronger than it
ls to-day.' lt Is probablo that never he?
foro ln tho hlstory of tho polltical par
tlos of thls- country has lt beon so casy
to foresco evohta aa lt is to forecast
tho strugglo, which wlll bo fought out
wlthlti tho Democratic party boforo an?
other Presldent shall havo boen chosen.
To tho mcro studont, the gltuatlon is
Interestlng; to thc partlsan merely lt ls
ono promislng cxcltomcnt, but to tho seri
