BILLY BRYAN PLEASE GO HOME.
The meddling with the Sena
torial organization by William
Jennings Bryan is not calculated
to do good for the Democratic
party, is our opinion. Bryan op
posed the election of Senator
Martin for minority leader but
he failed to land his man and
Martin won out. Some of the
Senators resent Col. Bryan's in
terference and properly so Now
it is reported that he intends to
go into the Virginia campaign to
make speeches against the re
election of the Senator from
Virginia. Martin does not sub
scribe to Bryan's initiative and
referendum ideas; for that reason
he proposes to drive out of the
party those who will not bow
to his will. The Democratic
party at this time has a fine pros
pect towin the next national con
test but if it listens to men who
have a grouch or some pet they
wish to fondle, instead of bring- 2
ing into line all Democrats im- ]
bued with enthusiasm, it might
as well stop right -now. Some
one has said "the Democrats can
be counted upon to do the foolish
thing," and it really looks so; just
upon the eve of a winning fight.

opening sores which had been
There isno gainsaying it, Bryan
is a great man but he can never
be president. The country is
looking for a Harmon, a Wilson,
a Polk whereupon all factions
of the party can-unite, and with
any of the leaders named we be
lieve, there is hope of a change
of party control, but creating
schims in the ranks by butting
into State contests, or undertak- .
ing to dictate the vote of indi
vidual congressmen, is a cause
for resentment which will be -
brought into action whenever it
is attempted, especially is it to
be resented to have a leader but- 1
ting in after the party in caucus
makes a decision or makes a
THEY SCORN HIM.
Caleb Powers, after having
been three times convicted of
murder, was pardoned by the(
Governor of- his State, and the
people of his-district elected him
to congress. but Powers is notI
having an easy road in that
august body. The Democratict
members of his delegation will
not serve on any committees with
him. Now to be consistent the
Kentucky delegation should ques
tion the right of Powers to a seati
in congress, and as the Demo
crats are strongly in the majorityc
they can be about as fair to him
as was the Kentucky juries whicht
convicted Powers for complicity
in the murder of Governor Goble.
Powers was the victim of a
wrought up political sentiment.
We never did believe from the
evidence that he was properly
convicted, but Goble was killed
during a political revolution, and 1
some one had to be sacrificed; it
fell to Powers' lot to draw the1
unlucky straw. The fact of1

THE GOVERNOR WATCHES THE TREASURY.1
The Stevenson Act providingc
for the distribution of the $300,
000 dispensary fund was held up(
by the governor because in his i
judgment no just distribution of a
this fund could be made under ,
the terms of said Act; however, i
Governor Biease would not take ~
the full responsibility to veto it t
until it was first submitted to the t
State board of education, thee
governor saying if the board ap
proved the Act he would sign it a
and if they did not he would veto a
it. The board heard the objec- t
tions to the Act and by a unani- j
mous vote sustained the gov- t
ernor's position. A substitute E
bill will be introduced at the ~
next session, until then, the e
school money will be hung up in
the treasury. This is an unfor
tunate situation for the schools,
as most of them are short of a
funds, and are sorely in need of
all the money they can get to
run this year. The fact of the
governor being unanimously sus
tained by the board shows that -
he must have been right in his
original objections, and that he
is guarding this fund properly.
California has a law which 1
provides that where a man is t
is sent to rail for not supporting t
his wife, hle shall work on the a

How about having such a law mie
