Bryan could not be present in person
to conduct the fight, but there were
others who won it for him.
Those were mild mannered resolu
tions offered by Mr. Bryan. One was
intended to promote the cause of in
ternational arbitration; the other was
against great trusts in the United
States. Members of the congress were
thought to be civilized and awake, so
the resolutions should have been re
ceived with favor.
In the committee the resolutions
were turned down. This was done be

The administration is satisfied that

In an article recently published con

the effect that the delegation from Keo

a niEh order to St. Louis for a substi

of the article is not known, but the
statement is considered improbable. It
is a very interesting and valuable ar

Elect Officers and Discuss Railroad
Peoria. 111.. Nov. 2S. Newspaper
publishers of Illinois met yesterday and
organized the Illinois Daily Newspaper
association with the following officers:
President Edgar E. Bartlett, Rock-
Vice President H. M. Pindell, Pe
Secretary A. C. Lindstrum, Gales-
Treasurer W. W. Miller, Quincy.
Directors John H. Harrison. Dan
ville: H. E. Baldwin. Joliet: II. F. Dor-
The principal topic under discussion
was on railroad transportation, and it
was the sense of the meeting that the;
publishers stand together and work for
a general contract favoring striking a
balance with the railroads at the close
of the year.
ARE DECLARED ELECTED
Ex-Senator David B. Hill is being
talked of for the leadership of the New
York state democratic party. It is said
that he has no desire to reenter poli
tics, but his friends believe that no
other man can undo the damage in
flicted on the party in the inter-Murphy
combine. It is known that Mr. Hill
withstood the most urgent pressure to
take charge of the anti-Hearst forces
at the Buffalo convention, of which h3
foretold the result. Now he is so much
put out by the situation that it is be
lieved he can be induced to resume
The Socialist Vote in Illinois.
In 1904 there was much concern in
Illinois at the result of the vast in
crease in the socialist vote in this
state. This was one of the most as
tonishing factors in the election, and
was followed by many extravagant
socialist claims. Figures shown as a
result of the recent state election, rath
er prove a setback to these socialist
claims, however, and a comparison
may be interesting.
Of course there i3 a falling off in
the vote generally except in the Case
of the prohibitionist candidate for
state treasurer, but that was not so
much of party significance as it was

crats as well as- republicans because of

In 1904 marvelous strength was
shown by the socialists. The vote for
governor of Illinois in 1904 was:
Deneen. republican 634.029
Stringer, democrat 324,880
Collins, socialist 59,062
, This showed an increase in the so
cialist vote in two years from 20,167
to 59,062, more than double, or an in
crease of 28,893. Eugene Debs, social
ist candidate for president, received in
that year a total vote in Illinois of G9,-
225, or over three time as many votes
as cast for the socialist candidate for
state treasurer two years previous.
Socialist exultation was manifest all
over the state. The official canvass of

shotgun at me. If the muzzle of the
gun looked cold, the girl's eyes looked
