This years convention of the Ohio
democrats was the smallest for the past
quarter of a century. Yet, Chairman
Jones predicts democratic success in

Why Bryan should buy a farm, after
preaching disaster to all farmers, is a
conundrum. But he did so as soon as
he amassed enough money from the
workings of his jaw.

A Missouri farmer lost a $500 dia

The democratic platform, dictated by
Bryan, the populist, says much about
couscription in the army of the United
States. The fact is. as everybody knows,
that only a small portion of the volun
teers were accepted and given guns.
The republican national platform
alopted at Philadelphia did well in
pointing out the danger and loss of
American dependence upon the shipping
o! foreign nations for the carriage of
nine-tenths of our foreign commerce
Democracy, in solemn platform, says
it favors direct legislation "wherever
possible." "Wherever possible" are
good words. The convention probably
heard from the direct legislationists of
Whitman county and Washington state.
Vice President Goodyear of the Direct
Legislation League must have sent in a
report by I. Ham Lewis.
No political party has ever met under
such favorable circumstances as did the
republican national convention in Phila
delphia. The unanimous nomination of
both the candidates for the offices of
president and vice president was unpre
cedented. Mr. McKinley has earned,acd
well deserves the compliment. The pros
perity of the country under his adminis
tration alone merits it, without taking
into consideration his able conduct of
our<jaffairs of state during the war with
Kpaiu. There was a notable difference
between the harmony of the republican
party at St. Louis, iv the convention of
1896, and at Philadelphia. Last month
every republican was working for the
strongest ticket, and there was a unani
mous verdict for McKinley and Koone
velt. The latter has endeared himself to
the people by his clean and honest ad
ministration of such public offices as he
has held, as well as by his bravery in
Cuba. They are both strong candidates,
politically and personally, and will gain
in strength as the campaign progresses.
Mr. Bryan, who ia the democracy, per
sonifies free silver, the surrender of the
Philippines to the Tagals, assault upon
the paramountcy of the law and courts,
attack on invested rights, opposition to
an army while advocating interference
in the affairs of Great Britain that must
of necessity involve us in war, while ob
jecting to such action as will protect
our own citizens in China, says the Ta
coma Ledger. Mr. Bryan is opposed to
honest money, to prosperity, to expan
sion of our territory and commerce, and
favors revolution that will overturn all
the present prosperous conditions. This
in brief is Bryanism, and therefore the
democratic policy, and no platform, be
yond this, is needed. Adlai Stevenson,
Mr. Bryan's running mate , is a chame
leon who weakly reflects the color of his
environment, and is not a factor in the
contest except to keep from the ticket
the strength that might have been add
ed by the endorsement of the bifuricated
populist candidate, Mr. Towne.
The platform of the republican party
this year is strong as w as the demand of
the people for the unanimous nomina
tion of McKinley and Roosevelt. Of the
president it said: "Walking untried
paths and facing unforeseen responsi
bilities, President McKinley has been in
every situation the true American
patriot and the upright statesman, clear
in vision, strong in judgment, firm in
action, always inspiring and deserving
the confidence of his countrymen." In
asking the people to endorse the repub
lican party for its record of business
prosperity, stable currency and patriotic
Americanism, it should be remembered
that the threat to prosperity has always
existed in the ranks of the democratic
party as well as in its incapacity to
properly manage our public affairs.
Mr. Bryan is reported to have said
during his visit to Chicago: "We'll be
willing to take the votes of all the peo
ple who have not had their share of
prosperity and leave the republicans the
votes of the people who have had their
share." Any republican will be willing
to carry on the campaign and abide the
result on this single issue. On it Mr.
Bryan would have to vote for McKinley
and Roosevelt. In 1896 his return to
the assessor showed the possession of
$270 worth of personal property, while
in 1900 he returns personal property to
the amount of $4560 and he has also
bought a farm, of which he is extremely
A democrat can only thrive in a politi
cal sense when he finds fault with all the
balance of the world. A democrat is
physically unable to cock an eye toward
the promising side of life. Democratic
predictions for generations have been
filled with gloom. That the progno3ti
catidns of the party never have proven
true does not discourage the members.
They bob up just as serenely and as ig
noringly of their false prophecies of dire
disaster as tbe day before they made
their harangues in the past.
The democratic party, ia tbe platform
upon which it stands in this campaign,
democratically and dernogogically
prates about volunteer soldiers. There
ie not a soldier in the regular army or a
sailor in the navy who is not a volun
teer. This day there are fewer soldiers
to the 1000 of population than were
ever under orders in the earlier days of
good old democracy. Democracy is un
trustworthy as to fact when a platform
The democratic platform, of populist
inspiration, says this country has de
parted from its path in the matter of
militarism. It talks conscription. The
illustrious Bryan who dictated every
word of that platform, knows in his
democratic and demagogic heart that
every man in the United States military
or naval uniform is a volunteer. Mr.
B-yan would make a Bret-chiss fire
From time immemorial thedemocratic
party has done nothiDg but denounce
whenever it has met in county, state or
national convention. The democratic
party in these days is nothing more or
less than a common eeold. Its platform
is rife with jangling fire alarms and the
party is made up from dismal prophecies
of dire disaster which aie as untrue as
thpy are un-American and demagogic.

SENDING FIGHTING MEN.*
United States Cabinet Is Aliye to
Events in China.
Washington, July 9. —Developments
in the Chinese situation were considered
by members of the cabinet at a consul
tation held today. The participants ex
plained the conference by saying that it
was the first opportunity that had oc
curred to gather as many as four of the
cabinet members for consultation. Re
sults followed in the shape of renewed
activity in the dispatch of reinforce
ments to China. Admiral KempfPe
cablegram giving his estimate of the
amount of force that he regards neces
sary to represent the United States
properly in the movement upon Pekin,
was carefully considered. An agreement
was reached to say nothing about the
admiral's figures, on the ground that it
would be impolitic to make our needs
known to the Chinese, in the first in
stance, and also of a desire on the part
of this government to avoid being put
in the position of appearing to set up a
standard for the other powers in this
It is understood, however, that the
pith of Admiral Kempff's communica
tion is the necessity of speedy reinforce
ments, if quick action is desired, and on
the latter point there is not a dissenting
voice among the cabinet officers. IE
reinforcements are to be gotten to China
speedily, they cannot come from the
United States. According to the schedule
already in execution, only one steamer,
with; two battalions of one regiment,
has started from San Francisco, and the
next steamer is not to start before the
fifteenth of the present month. This is
about the best time that can be made
with the present facilities, and at that
rate many weeks and even months must
elapse before the 6000 additional troops
ordered east Saturday can be landed
This state of affairs caused a revival
today ot the report that General Mac-
Arthur is to be again called upon to re
lieve the situation by dispatching from
the Philippines at least two regiments
in addition to the Ninth infantry already
sent to Taku. It was said that the cab
inet officers considered this subject and
decided to give the necessary orders
looking to a replacement of the troops
withdrawn from General Mac Arthur's
command from the force going out from
the United States. None of the cabinet
officers would admit or deny this, so it
gained some measure of credence.
Unless Japan is left to do all the fight
ing in the immediate future, General
Mac Arthur must respond to this de
mand. By drawing upon the Philip
pine force, at least a month could be
saverl in landing troops in China.
Sending Marines to China
Secretary Long this afternoon showed
ho*.v the navy was responding to the
call for reinforcements by ordering 500
marines to be assembled from the sev
eral navy yards and ordered to China.
It is significant that these are the first
military forces to be sent directly from
the United States to China, without in
structions to stop at Nagasaki for or
ders. The marines will make up a force
of 750 men, as the department has al
ready given orders for the equipment of
250 marines for similar service. They
will be sent out on the first army trans
port available for the service.

Doctors still prescribe mercury and potash as the only cure for Blood Poison. These poisonous mi n- mIIII ftJI I t **
erals never yet made a complete and permanent cure of Contagious Blood Poison. They drive the disease w*ll w
back into the system, cover it up for a while, but it breaks out again In worse form. These powerful minerals produce mercurial
rheumatism and the most offensive sores and ulcers, causing the joints to stiffen and finger nails to drop oil. Mercury and
potash make wrecks, not cures, and those who have been dosed with these drugs are never after free from aches and pain
S. S. S. acts in an entirely different manner, being a purely vegetable remedy ; it forces the poison out of the system, and
instead of tearing down, builds up and invigorates the general health. S. S. S. is the only antidote for this specific virus, and
therefore the only cure for Contagious Blood Poison. No matter in what stage or how hopeless the case may appear, even
though pronounced incurable by the doctors, S. S. S. can be relied upon to make a rapid, permanent cure. S. S. S. is not a
new, untried remedy ;an experience of nearly fifty years has proven it a sure and unfailing cure fur this disease. It is the
only purely vegetable blood medicine known.
