The Democrats nearly m2de a

Predicts Democratic Victory in
Norember and Two Years Hence.
The Wsahington correspondent of
The News and Courier says when I
Congressman Edward Y. Webb. of
the 9th North Carolina district. was
in Washington a day or two ago, he b
said: "Broken promises with reter- i
ence to revising the tariff, bossism.
Cannonism and standpatism are the
chief causes of the nation-wide re

Analyzed closely the statement of
Mr. Webb will be found to be the -
keynote of the causes that are fast t
leading to a Democratic victory In
the next Congress and to a national
victory in 15*'?.
Continuing. Mr. Webb said: 'Think
of it. the last Democratic Senator in
Maine was elected in 1847. Just sixty
three years ago. He was James W.
Bradbury. Maine has not elected a
Democratic Representative since 18I

Viewed from a Washington stand

elephant which has marched trium-l
phantly to the White House for many|
years is grievously sick and even Dr.
Roosevelt and other well-known pa"
ty speciahzsts are unable to effect a
cure. None of them are willing to|
diagnose the case, though most stren-|
uous efforts are being made to rem-|
edy the situation.
The truth of the matter is the Re

years of greed and selfishness is
choking itself to death. It has be

is about to pay the penalty and for-|
