IT IS THE CAUSE, NOT THE MAN.
All editorial in Tk Nkws Bating
forth tho necessity of removing tho
thrco spoilsmen, Hill. Gorman ami
Brice, from the head and leadership
of tho Democratic party, provokes this
criticism from tho San Antonio Ex
press: "About u year ago this same pa
per had tho warmest words of praiso
for Senator Gorman's masterly fight
upon tho foroo bill. It think that
in saving the Mew York legislature
to tho Demooraoy, Governor Hill has
done most valuablo 6orvioe. When
Colonol Brice, a resident of Now York,
was olectcd senator from Ohio, The
Mews could see nothing wrong in it.
Tho present outburst is caused by
two facts. One is that aftor repeat
ed ballots in the Demooratic cauous
Mr. Mills was defeated for speaker
Tho other is that Mr. Mills wa not
offered the chairmanship of tbs coni
mitteo on ways and means Tint is
tho whole story "
That is not tho wholo story. When
Mills was dofeated The News was ono
of tho first papers in tho stato to at
tribulo the res alt to tho superior skill
of thcCriEp men in what it believed
at that time to have been purely a
personal contest. The News was
heartily for Mills and was sorry its
candidato was defoatcd, but refused
to believe that his defeat had any
political significance until tho Now
York Sun, the Atlanta Constitution
tho Express and other protection pa
pers came to us filled with editoral
rejoicing over tho triumph o tho pro
tection element in tho Dernooratio
party followed by The assignment of
the committees by Speaker Crisp.
Then The News was oonvincod that
tho ohargej that Hill, '.Brice and
Gorman, each of whom are protection
ists and neither a member of tho houso
of rcpreser tatives, were tho real man
agers of tho Crisp campaign was true.
It was a deliberate Bohomo to cbook
tho growth of tho tariff reform senti
ment in the Domooratio party and
thwart tho will of tho pnoplo. It ij
not that Mills tbo man was rofused an
office. Texas can and will givo him
a bettor ono. no wont down as
tho acknowledged representative of a
prinoiplo dear to the hearts of nine
tenths of tho Dernooratio voters of this
country and when ho wont down the
great principle for which he stood j
went down with him for the time bo
ing. "Tho do f oat of ono man is noth
ing, but the defeat of a ijroat oauso is
everything." As to tho fight Mr.
Gorman made against tho force bill,
TnE News is happy to accord to him
its hearty thanks and approval, but
that fight, gallant as it was, and of
suoh valuo to tho South, did not
licenso Mr. Gorman to cntor into a
triangular intrigue to defeat tho
will of the Dernooratio party which
was almost umtod against the protec
tive idoa. An overwhelming major
ity of the Domocrutio party is oppos
ed to protection but notwithstanding
that fact Hill, Gorman and Bnco by
their adroit scheming made it impos
sible for the party in tho present oon
gross to fight it. That's what Tin:
News is kicking about, and that is
just tho condition of things tho Ex
press as a protection paper desired to
see. We will meet you at the con
vention. Has Lieutenant Governor Pondle
ton tho time to attend an extra session?
Senator Tyler and Hilling P. Robin
son aro depriving him of a great deal
of his time.
