any concern of the attorney general
what those abQve him may do, but it
should be his purpose to perform' his
duty, and when that is done his re

should not delight in the prosecutiDn
of any of -the citizens of the State, but
when he is called upon to prosecute
anyone for violation of any State law,
he should do it fairly and impartially
and with a view to see that justice is
done. The prosecuting officer should
not be concerned about what any other
department of the government might
do, but should proceed to discharge

The story sent out from Columbia
to the effect that the graduating class
refused to have Governor Blease pre
senti their diplomas proves to be with
out foundation. However much Gov.
Blease may be disliked newspaper
correspondents should stick to the
truth or else their facts. The Daily
Mail does not believe in that kind of
The fault of several of the news
papers at present is that they permit
the prejudices and personal feelings
of their editors to enter into their
news service. The newspaper rep6rt
er or corespondent has .a large re
sponsibility, and no reputable news
paper should continue to employ a re
porter or correspondent who colors
the facts to give vent to his personal
feelings, nor should they keep in their
employ a correspondent who persist
ently misrepresents facts. The press
will not have influence for the better
ment of the State nor of the people un
til it learns the lesson of carefulness
in the handling of facts.
There could be no possible good

W. J. BRYAN SHOWS STRENGTR[
Will He be a Probability in the Next
National Convention i-Some
Special to The Herald and News.
Washington, D. C., June 10.-Politi
cal students and those forecasting the
nominees for the next presidential
campaign have been disconcerted by
the strength shown by Bryan and
Roosevelt in the recent straw ballot
polled in Nebraska. Bryan's nomina
tion seems more probable today than
at any time since the Denver conven
tien and his third defeat.
These two old rivals. Bryan and
Roosevelt, facing each other in a des
perate political struggle for the presi
dency will not be an unlooked for or
an ungwelcomed future event in round
ing up the nominees for the nexi
Those who thought they had Bryar
shelved have been turown into con
sternation by the strength he has
shown everywhere where straw bal
lots have been used. His friends clain
that his nomination is certain. The3

party, that, now to side-rack hin
when party success seems almost a
certainty is nothing short of political
They point out, too, that Bryan has
always been strong and popular with
the masses. He has staying qualities,
good health, a clear mind, and a clean
public and private life.
Bryan has three opponents to face,
and conquer before carrying off the
1912 nomination. They are Wilson.
Clark and Harmon, and these are
uamed in- the order of their chances.
Wilson is acknowledged to be a great
student, but he has hardly yet gone
through sufficient training for the
presidency. He has a great fight on
his hands in his own State before h
can claim the ability to rebuke, oust,
and defeat political bosses. New Jer
sey is honeycombed with political bos
sism and if Wilson demonstrates his
ability to handle them his chances for
the next Democratic nomination for
president will be grmatly improv3d.
But there is another difficulty in his
way. Wall Staeet can be depended
on to oppose Wilson at every stage of
the game. To the great masses Wil
son is as yet little known, and with
Wall Street solidly against him he has
much difficult ground to cover be
tween now and the next convention.
Clark must yet keep the Democratic
majority in the house united, and put
through such legislation as will please
the masses before he has any chances
at all. It is true he is gaining ground,
but he has recently lost the Bryan
strength by going only half way in the
wool revision. This bill is a compro
mise when a tariff ridden citizenship
has been demanding tariff for revenue
only. Whether this measure will!
strengthen or weaken Clark remains
to be seen. It is a measure that all
Harmon of Owio is growing weaker,
as a possibility for presidential hon
ors, with each new political move. He
has not been allied with the newer
and younger democracy, and Bryan's
following alone is sufficient to defeat
his nomination, and neither Bryan or
his friends will stomach Harmon. He
has always either fought Bryan or
stood aloof when help was needed.
Suppose then, in the next conven
tion, Wilson fails to gather enough
strength to be nominated, and the
convention faces a split over Clark
and ,Harmon ,and at the psycological
moment the cry, "What's the matter
with Bryan" rings out from the loyal
Nebraska delegationa, and a flood of
oratory fills the room recotanting Bry
an's faithful party service, Ifis unsur
passed personality, his fighting abil
ity, and his devotion to the right?
At any rate these are some of the
things that have been disturbing poii
tical Washington, and have made
those that thought they had Bryan
shelved wake up and go to work writh
new tactics. Yet Bryan faces them
honestly and gives them better than
Fthey send. They tried to arrange a
split betwen Clark and Bryan, and
then make Bryan responsible for it.
The time seemed opportune when!
Bryan hastened to Washington to help
in the wool revision. Bryan did not
bolt. He accepted the bill as reported
from the caucus, but said while it was
better than any Republican measure
had ever been it did not go far enough.
The split was averted, and Bryan is
today the leader of the Democratic
party, and his nomination for a fourth
time is not improbable.
