THE TWO COL iS
AND THEIR PLANS
HOW BRYAN AND ROOSEVELT
WILL INFLUENCE INDIANA.
Some Say That Commoner Will Split
Party on Liquor-What Teddy
Will Do is Mystery.
(Zach McGhee in Columbia State.)
Evansville, Ind., Aug. 2.-It is not
meet to leave In diana without telling
about two men, both colonels, who.
do not live here in body, but whose
spirits are here-Col. Roosevelt and
Col. Bryan. Both of those gentlemen'
have had a following in this State,
Bryan's very much under-estimated,
and Roosevelt's just as much over-es
titmated. Both of them are to come
into the State to help. or hurt, in the
campaign, and there are two very de
cided opinions about the side each is
going to help. Some say Roosevelt
will help Beveridge's c*use; some say
he will hurt it. Some say Bryan will
help the Democratic cause; some say.,
he will hurt it. Now all these I refer
to are radicals and extremists of one
sort or another. Th interesting and
significant thing is that the impart al
and seemingly e- inft;rmcd wise
acres, political students and "pulse
feelers" say that i;ither o.e o' them
is going to have any considerabi? ef
feet one way or the other. It is still
more significant that this is the view
taken by the party leaders and man
agers in both parties.
Split on Liquor?
As to the Democratic party, there
are no factions in the party, and about
the only ones who are counting heav
ily on Mr. Bryan or who pretend that
they are counting on him are the Re
publicans, that is the Beveridge fac
tion, who say that Mr. Bryan will split
the party, not on any Bryanisras )r
any of the old issues, you understand,
but on the liquor question. Some of
the Democratic campaign managers
were at first opposed to inviting Mr.
Bryan to come at all on this account.
The situation is just this: the Demo-:'
cratic platform in Indiana declares for
local option with the township and
the city as the units, while in Nebras
ka Mr. Bryan has been the champion,
the defeated champion, by the way, of
the county unit. Some feared that
since the Republican legislature pass
ed the present county option law Mr.
Bryan, should he say anything on that(
subject, would help the Republicans.1
But the Democratic leaders now say
that they do not believe that Mr. Bry-1
an will come into this State and ad-I
vocate anything which woeuld embar- 1
rass them, especially when the real,
vital issue is the tariff, about whicht
Mr. Bryan used to love so much to 1
discourse. And more than this theyt
are so well satisnu th. their party
is now solidified that they really do*
not care if Mr. Bryan does say he be
lieves the county option plan is bet- *
ter. He certainly will not advocate'
any one voting the Republican titcket tI
and run the risk of sending another
Republican senator to congress be-'i
cause of this difference as to the unit
for local option.
The Only Question.
There isn't the slightest fear of Mr. '
Bryan on any other proposition, be-'
cause all the old "Gold Democrats"
who left the 'party in 1896 have come:i
back, and neither Mr. Bryan nor any-,c
body else could turn them from the
enthusiastic support of John W. Kern.
for the senate m.d the whole Demo
cratic platform. As for the old Bryar.t
Methusiasts they ar? go.i to 'ote e
the Democratic ticket anyway. And'g
yet nobody must forget that Bryane
has now and always has had the mostc
enthusiastic admiration of the great I
mass of the people in this State, and c
this admiration is not confined to thei
Democrats either. Nobody so far as f
I have heard has any idea of nom- t
inating him again for the presidency, 1
but they believe in him, and they be I
lieve in most of the things he ad-. l
vocates. So the rank and file want a
him here, want him to come as ofteni
as he will and speak as long as he
will, and on any subject. c
Now as to the coming of the other
colonel, late of African glory, it is.
a little different. It is never what he
says that interest anybody, because
be is generally dull so far as his
speeches are concerned, but it is that
he speaks at all. So widely advertised:
a gentleman speaking in favor of a 1
cause fs believed to help it. And In->
diana Republicans are used to being1
bossed, used to voting for a man or a
ticket not because they believe in it:1
but because somebody else says vote
that way. But the curious thing and
that which is interesting everybody
out this way is, what is Col Roosevelt
going to tell them to do?
All Balled Up.
The thing is all balled up. The Re
publicans are split into two irrecon
ciable factions. Is the colonel going
to tell them to reconcile themselves?
Then if they do, the object of this re
conciliation is to elect Beveridge

are, the tariff bill, which Beveridge 1cre

the platform and the party flag, of
d that sort of thing. But to support ide

Not alone in Indiana but throughout De:
e whole country, Mr. Roosevelt's WiI

rong the most radical of the insur- the

mas made up his mind to come out onth
