THE TARTY THAT DOES THINGS
In n recent speech at Charles City,
lawn, Mr. Bryan gave three reasons for
predicting that the next president would
not bo a Republican: "First, the evi
dent growth in popularity of Demo
cratic ideas; second, becauso of the dis
sension among Republicans; third, tho
utterances of Republicans, who admit
that thoy havo no ehanco for success
unless tho proper man is chosen; and
tho different factions of the party dis
agree on tho propor man."
Whnt makes an ideal Domooraticf A
party cannot prevent a competing party
from taking up any proposition in tho
platform of its competitor. Mr. Bryan
and his millions of admirers should bo
glad to havo tho Republicans pay so
high a compliment, so conspicuous a
tribute, to tho Democratic party as
tho present administration has done.
Instead of crying "Stop thiofl Don't
run off with our issues," tho eloquent
Nebraskan should rojoico that what ho
'claims as his issues arc adopted by a
party that does things. However great
and good a policy might be, of what
benefit could it bo to tho American pco
plo while it remained in tho platform,
mid in no other platform than that of
a party which gets control of legisla
tion for only two years out of more
than fifty years f
Of course tho Democrats may win in
1008. That is always a possibility of a
presidential campaign. But they can
not possibly control tho houses of con
gress. Therefore, a Democratic victory
would amount to indefinite postpone
ment of all partisan measures. But tho
"dissension nmong Republicans" is no
assurance of Democratic gain. Tho Re
publican party is a thoroughly organ
ized party, whose members aro amen
able to discipline. In 1900, on the eve
of the campaign, thero was .war, seem
ingly bitter and vindictive, among the
Republicans in congress, but tho party
got together and achieved an easy and
great victory over tho demoralized
Democracy, whom Colonel Bryan had
boldly bossed into a reaffirmation of
1G to 1, although tho Democrats, in
complianeo with Mr. Bryan's wish,
"paramounted" anti-imperialism, and
this gave them no apparent incrcaso of
iDoos Mr. Bryan remember tho cam
paign of 1880, when, in tho Chicago
Republican national convention thero
was a phenomenal disagreement as to
"tho proper man," and a factional
fight of cxtrcmo bitterness? In that
year tho Democrats should havo won
hands down, for it was the next elec
tion year after tho counting out of
Mr. Tilden. But the Republican fac
tions got together. Grant took Conk
ling to Mentor and tho war was over.
Don't count on n Republican disaffec
tion or disgruntlemcnt as yet. Such
conditions may prevail a year hence,
but the precedents aro not now point
ing that way. Whereas in tho Demo
cratic party at this time thero is no
nppearanco of enthusiasm, nor has thero
been since tho Democratic leader throw
an ico water bath on tho bright hopes
and splendid prospects of both factions
of his party who had assembled to
wolcomo him homo from tho Old World.
"Tho tender grnco of a day that is
dead" is not likely to return. Wash
of tho illiterate whites as a class. To
accomplish this, it is provided that
only those citizons shall bo allowed to
vote who como under some ono of tho
Honorable service in nny war of tho
United States with a foreign power or
Honorable servico on tho confedorato
side in tho Civil war.
Lawful descent from tlioso embraced
in tho above-named classes.
Ownership of forty a'cres of lnnd in
tho state or of pioporty of any kind
assessed for taxation at $500.
Tho possession of u good charactor
and comprehension of tho obligations
of republican citizenship.
Ability correctly to read and write
nny paragraph of tho federal constitu
tion, or, in caso of porbons physically
disabled, ability reasonably to intorprot
any paragraph of tho same instrument.
Obviously, thoro is no apparent dis
crimination against blacks as hucIi. But
it is tho registrars who will determine
tho existence of ability to "under
stand" or "interpret" tho constitu
tion, tho possession of "good charac
tor" and of sufficient intelligence to
comprehend tho duties of citizenship.
All ngrco that if tho registrars shall
bo equal to thoir task tho great major
ity of tho negroes will bo disfranchised
by tho nmendii)cnt. As to tho white
illiterates, tho "good citizenship"
clause is expected to covor a multitude
of other shortcomings.
Hague Conference Decides to
Follow Lead Set by the
DISFRANCHISEMENT IN GEORGIA
Tho so-called "disfranchisement bill"
which has now passed both branches of
the Georgia legislature, embodies tho
suggestion of Governor Hoko Smith
as presented by him in messages and
in speeches, and as approved by the
peoplo in tho last gubernatorial cam
paign, when tho question of "negro dis
franchisement" was tho leading issue
It contains no strikingly original pro
visions, following substantially tho suf
frage schemes of other southern states.
It is claimed, howover, that it is framed
with such caro that no successful at
tack upon it, on constitutional grounds,
will be possiblo in tho federal courts.
What tho bill does is to provido for
tho submission to tho peoplo of nn
amendment to tho suffrage articlo of tho
state constitution, such amendment pro
scribing certain qualifications for tho
oxerciso of tho voting privilege. Tho
"grandfather clauso" nnd tho "undor-Htanding-the-constitution"
been incorporated into tho amendment.
Tho avowed object of tho amendment
is- to disfranchise tho illiterato blacks
without endangering tho suffrngo right

THE HAGUE, August 17. Tho peace
conference hero unanimously adopted
tho resolutions of Sir Edward Vry, the
Bri.ish delegate, confirming tho reso
lution of the first peace conference re
garding tho limitation of military bur
dens and declaring that as military bur
dens since then had been considerably
augmented, it is highly desirable that
"governments earnestly resumo tho
study of tho question." Tho confer
ence listened closoly to Sir Edward's
speech, where in ho recalled that the
convoking of tho pea'.'o conference had
primarily in view tho stopping of aug
mentation of armaments. Ho announced
that Britain is ready to communicate
its plans o' warships to all powers in
clined to do likewise.
Tho Russian, French, Spanish and
United States Dolegatcs formally in
dorsed tho British resolutions.
M. NelidolT, head of the Russian del
egation and president of the conference,
said that tho disarmament suggestion
is immature now, as a discussion of it
would be not only sterile, but injuri
ous to tho oauso cf peace, becauso it
would show a divergence of opinions,
although in Teality a" unity of inten
tions exists which may ono day lead
Neljdoff therefore proposed a unani
mous adoption of the resolutions, which
was voted accordingly.

Arizona Cattleman Thought Ho Was an
Actor in Disguise
With every newspaper in tho entire
town making a different guess as to
his purpose in attending tho cattlemen's

FORMER GLOBE MINING
MAN TRIMMED IN K. O.
William Beard, well known hero and
at Globo as a successful mining man,
has inllon into tho hands of Kansas
real cstato sharps and got pinched for
about $10,000. Thoy sold him a vast
acreage of rock land in Missouri which
thoy induced him to buy without in
specting it. William had bottor return
to Arizona to invest in land where real
estato sharps aro not tolerated. Fior

"Tho investor, great and small, locks
up bin money and refuses to venture
"I do not need your stock market ro
port, your editorials, your predictions
and forebodings to prove to mj-solf tho
truth of my words. I havo a way of
knowing absolutely a way which has
never fnilod mo in tho long years of
my business career. That is the way 1
am judging tho financial situation, from
tho attitude of tho financial world to
ward myself. Lot mo illustrate:
"Thero was a time, not long ago, be
fore tho present runaway, hit or miss,
impulsive agitation began that 1 would
bo culled up on tho tolephono, say, by
Kuhn, Loeb & Co., say by Mr. Morgan's
office, and in tonus asked if I wanted to
como in a syndicate and a certain al
lotment of shares. The chance was
given me, but I wns also told that I
would havo to make immediate answer.
If my reply wns that I needed several
days for consideration, the telephone
receiver would bo hung up, in all like
lihood. When I called several days
after and snid I would go into tho syn
dicate 1 would bo curtly informed that
I had lost my opportunity, that the
syndicate had been completed.
Says Monoy Is Needed
"What is tho situation now! 1 am
called and asked to participate in many
syndicates, but in nono of them is the
time decision fixed on tho instant. In
stead of the former attitude, I know
they are content to await my decision
and 1 know thero is no danger that I
will bo too Jate.
"I can judge in a day. Requests are
coming to mo today for money from
quarters it was least expected would be
asking for money some time ago. To
day I was offered an unprecedented in
terest of 7 per cent for ono million or
two million or thrco million. Tho secur
ity was boyond all criticism. That
would be impossible in this country if
thero was confidence enough in tho out
look to unlock tho monoy vaults of the

United States today aro unablo to bor
row money for any length of time. For
merly they could obtain it for eight or
ten years in great amounts. Thoy aro
very well satisfied to take anything
thoy can get now for a short term.
Recently I was offered car trusts, ono
of the safest possible investments, at
tho rate of 6 to 7 per cent, and they
wore very glad to givo that rate, al
though there is a margin on the safety
sido of these loans.
"I judgo of tho condition of the
country by theso things I have told and
by others which como directly under
my notice, under tho notice of my per
sonal representative, my son, and oth
ers. "It is really of no great moment to
me. I am through with business. Loss
or gain no longer affects me. I am
content as I am today. I am in better
health than I hnvo been for many years.
I am happier than I havo been for
twelvo years or more.
Lauds Hughes and Taft
"Why aro men making theso offers
to me now? It is becauso of a lack of
confidence of tho resources of the coun

of foreign entanglements, not becauso
of crop failures nor of tho monetnry

Secretary Taft and Charles E. Hughes,
go.vcrnor of New York.
-"Both of them," lip said, "aro do
Hberato men, safe men."
Secretary Taft, Mr. Rockefeller said,
ho believed to bo a man who would do
as his conscience dictated, and that he
would not bo guided by tho beliefs and
policies of a predecessor.
"How has tho Standard Oil company
prosporcdf What has been tho secret
of tho marvelous cohesive -force of tho
company?" continued Mr. Rockefeller.
"Nothing but absolute confidence in
each other. Nothing but confidence in
tho company. It could not havo lasted
had there been nny of this browbeating
