Both Friends of Bryan.
The two leading men mentioned in
connection with the Democratic Pres
idential nomination at this time are
Speaker Clark and Gov. Wilson. For
the last sixteen years Mr. Clark has
been a close political friend and sup
porter of William Jennings Bryan.
Before that he supported Mr. Cleve
land, bait was bitterly disappointed
in the leadership the latter displayed
in the White 'House. He thought it
anything but sound. In his judg
ment the victory of 1892 was turned
by Mr. Cleveland into a calamity for
both the Democratic party and the
country. We.may all be sure that he
does not want to "go back" to any
thing like that if nominated for Pres
dent next year and elected he will
go forward in a path of his own.
On the other hand Governor Wil
son, until quite recently, was a loyal
follower of Grover Cleveland, stand
ing by and endorsing all the impor
tant measures that Cleveland and his
wing of the. Democratic party advo
cated and attempted to carry out. But
he has seen theTlght, and now he is
a full-fledged Bryanite, endorsing all
the ? important measures that the
Bryan wing the Democracy ad
vocates and hopes to see enacted into
laws should they capture the govern
ment in all its branches. Governor
Wilson is not looking 'backward, but,
/like Speaker Clark, he is facing for
ward, and is making an aggressive
fight for measures that Mr. Cleveland
would reject with scorn if he was
The strength of Speaker Clark and
Governor Wilson in the Democratic
party is a most significant sign of the
times. Under the long and progres
sive leadership of Mr. Bryan, the
Democratic party has moved a long
way from the views held and advo
cated by Mr. Cleveland and his fol
lowers. It has absorbed and pledgr
ed itself to carry out should it be
trusted with power many Ideas that
was branded as revolutionary and so-,
cialistic when first advocated by Mr. \
Bryan It has become so radical that
three years ago it nominated Bryan
the third time for President in the
face of a public declaration that un
less a change took place in the man
agement of the raliroads that the
government would have to take them
over and operate them.
Mr. Cleveland's leadership ended
In complete failure. At the e id of
his leadership of twelve years, eight
of which he spent In the Presidential
office, he left the Democratic party a
disastrous and hopeless wreck. It
suffered its greatest defeat midway
of his second term and affon ten
years of his leadership. He and his
measures were repudiated by the peo
ple, who sent the largest number of
Republicans that year to the House
that was ever known in thai. body.
The Republicans did not only .apture
the House, but they captured the
Senate and elected Governor? In ev
ery Northern State. That Is what
Cleveland did for the party.
This was the condition of the party
when Bryan assumed leadership. He
had to build up a new organization,
and had it not been for the treachery
of many of Mr. Cleveland's followers
and the immense corruptiuu fund
I raised by Mark Hanna, Bryan would
! have won a great victory for the
[people. In the face of all this he
polled six and a half-millions votes,
and is today the most influential pri
vate citizen in the world. In the
face of all this it is not strange that
thoughtful men like Speaker Clark
and Governor Wilson should follow
In the track blazed out by Mr. Bryan.
They know that he is right, r.nd that
the great reforms he. advocates are
Bryan a Private Citizen.
Congressman Underwood's verbal
assault on William Jennings Bryan
as a dictator has set the pen 3 again
of those editors who are in the habit
of misrepresenting the great Demo
cratic leader. It reminds us of the
days when Bryan was first the can
didate of his party, for this kind of
warfare originated with thn pluto
cratic element of the Democratic
party about that time. Charges of
political dictatorship againsr. Bryan
have a suspicious significance, and
comes as a general thing from those
in the Democratic party who secret
ly want to see Republicanism pre
vail if they can't get a republicaniz
ed Democrat for a candidate.
As Bryan is merely a private cit
izen, the accusation that he is a
political dictator cannot be made
against him by any one of good
sense in good faith. How can Bryan,
or any other man, be a political dic
tator when he holds no public office
of any kind, not even a chairman
ship in any organization of his party,
who belong to no inside political
clique, who has no big business affili
at'oii?, who can not pull a single
secret wire in politics, whose only
political power is the confidence that
a vast majority of the masses of his
party repose in his fidelity? B.ryan's
political power has no oth-r source
nor support than that weil-earned
confidence which the Democrats of
the country have in him.
The abuse heaped on Tlryan is
only an effort on the part Of galvan
ized Democrats to descry bis influ
ence so as they can republicanize the
Democratic party/ Bryan has rto
longer even the dubious power of a
oossible candidate for the presidency
for he has distinctly declared that
he is not a candidate for the nomi
nation. That the power of such a
man as Bryan has is to be dreaded
by some kind of political managers
is true enough; but not by any of
the kind with whom we st!'l wish to
identify the future of the great Dem
ocratic party. There is a vast dif
ference in the wholesome power of
a trusted leader like Bryan and the
danperous dictatorship of a politi

Democrats Gain a Senator.
The death of Senator William P.
Frye, of Maine, means the addition
to the Democratic roll of United
States senators another Senator from
Maine, giving that State two Demo
cratic senators for the first time in
many years. Incidentally it reduces |
the Republican majority in the Unit
ed States Senate to almost a min
The Greenville Daily Piedmont
says "when the new senator from
Maine qualifies the total Democratic
vote will be 41 and the total Repub
lican vote 49, a majority of only
eight. As quite a number of those
who are included in the Republi
can list are really insurgents, no
more Republicans than Democrats if
as much, it might be said that the
Republicans no longer have control
of the body.
"It has been clearly demonstrated
in the extra session of congress that
the insurgent senators will not vote
with the Republicans any, oftener
than they will with the Democrats.
And the balance of power lies with
these insurgents. It is doubtful if
the senate of the United States has
ever been so split as at- present.
There are virtually three parties in
The Democrats have gained three

Senators in States that went Dem
ocratic last fall. Unless there is a
very great change in the sentiment
of the people from the last election
in the next election we expect to see
the Democrats capture enough addi
tional seats in the senate to give
them a clear majority in that body.
So, if they succeed in electing the
President next year, the Democrats
will have the entire government in
their hands. That is the way it
