At a sale of political works in Phil
adelphia 250 quarto volumes of the
Congressional Record in half Russia
binding were bid in at 2 cents a vol
ume, and the purchaser was extrava
gant.. The attitude of the, democratic na
tional committee in endorsing! fully
the suggestions of Mr. Bryan relative
to campaign contributions is most op-
portupe. The trust is not to dominate
this campaign without being caught.
There are going to be a lot of disap
pointments throughout Illinois after
Aug. 8. A new record will be made in
the number of defeated' candidates.
But every sorrowing one will have
the consolation that there are lots
more in the same boat.
Intellect and conscience are written
all over Kern's face, Kern is re
sptcted in Indiana, where he is well
known,' for his real worth; and so will
he be respected and beloved through
. ( wit the union as the people become
acquainted with him. Mr. Kern is a
fit companion to be on the ticket with
Mr. Bryan. He will make votes for
the ticket not only in Indiana, but in
all the states of the union.

To the democrats of Rock Island
will be accorded the honor of the first
ratification meeting of the presiden
tial campaign of this year. The exer
cises will occur tonight on Market
square, the speakers being the candi
dates for the party gubernatorial nom
ination, ' Hon. John P. McGoorty and
Hon. Douglas Pattison, both leaders
of the lower house of the Illinois leg
islature, and it is hoped Colonel J
Hamilton Lewis, a distinguished mem
ber of tho party in . the state. Hon
E. W. Hurst will preside.
Apart from the fact that every deni
ocrat in Rock Island is expected to
be present, it is more than likely that
hundreds of citizens, not heretofore
affiliated with the democratic party
and doubtless many who may not, be
so included, will improve the oppor
tunity to hear the issues of the cam
paign intelligently discussed.
It is proper that this should be so.
The time for partisan prejudice all
too often engendering political bitter
ness, has happily largely passed away
in this country. What the people
want to hear are the issues and propo
sitions which affect them .most vitally
properly and reasonably put before
them. This is what it is proposed to
'; In candidates and in platform dec
laration, the democratic party in the
nation never occnpled a more com
manding position. Its Issues appeal
to the people. Its candidates are
known by their works, and it is meet
and right that the people, irrespective
of politics," should be present to hear,
if not perhaps in all instances to rati
fy, the party's attitude.
Toilers and a Tariff.
The republican party would appear
o be very solicitous about the wage
earners of the country and especially
declares in the national platform just
adopted, its purpose "to maintain the
high standard of living of the wage
earners of this country Who are the
most direct beneficiaries of the pro
tective system." That eouuds well,
but can hardly deceive the average
workingman, who . from experience
knows that if he is "the most direct
beneficiary of the protective system.'
tho sooner that system Is . reformed
the belter It wilU.be, for him. There
is no doubt that the tariff protects
the ' manufacturers and that it has
fostered trusts and created monop
olies. We-also have evidence that
the tariff has had a hand in creating
the panic, and the resulting business
depression. " ,i .
'Senator Foraker has just declared
in a speech to "the members of the
Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce that
"there , is still a cloud, hanging over
the business of the country, that can
not be removed by the resolutions of
a" sunshine -club," and that the fear
of -tariff reform makes business gen
erally uneasy. There are also a good
mnuy uneasy workIngmenv for Sena
tor Foraker Bid that on July 31, 1907,
there was work for 20,000 more men
Jin Cincinnati than there were work-
men do to it, but the mercantile
(agencies of Cincinnati now informed
him "that there are today in Cincin
nati 20,000 to 22,000 Idle artisans
men who work at trades, skilled labor,
and the highest classes of labor, so to
speak." , .
This acknowledgment by uch an
eminent republican leader that the
wage earners are hunting a job in
stead of the job hunting them, hard
ly shows that they "are the most di
rect beneficiaries of the protective
system." If they are it shows that
the protective system is a delusion as
far as wage earners are concerned.
We hear from , Pittsburg,, the head
center of the protective system, that
the employes of the steel trust are
compelled to sell their small holdings
in that corporations, which does not
add to the truth of the republican
declaration that those vorkingmen
are the direct beneficiaries of the pro
tective system, for the steel trust is
very highly protected by the tariff.
Then tho National Glass Budget of
Pittsburg, of June 27. reports a disas
trous state of affairs for the window
glass workers, which is one of the
highest tariff protected industries, in
which the workers should be the
"most direct beneficiaries of the pro
tective system." But it appears they
are not, for the Budget reports that

Republicans and Bryan. '
One could hardly expect a fair opin
ion of Bryan from unfair republican
newspapers, any more than republi
cans would expect a fair opinion of
Tafl from an unfair democratic 'news
paper. But in this campaign conserv
ative and fair-minded editors will not
hesitate to make concessions where
they are deserving. - Democratic pa
pers find much to approve, for in
stance, in the position of William H.
Taft on some issues, but believe that
tne democratic party with W. J. Bryan
as leader not only has a much
stronger candidate individually, but
that Bryan is presented on a far more
positive, supportable, affirmative nlat
form , than is Taft, because the Chi
cago platform is a "straddle" on sev
eral vital issues, an evasion on others,
and ignores a number of matters that
fire of vital interest to the people.
In trying to offset the obvious weak
ness of Taft and the Chicago platform,
most of the G. O. P. press is plungng
into unjustified criticism of Bryan and
the Denver platform.
Xot all republican papers are dis
posed to be so rabid and dishonest,
As an illustration note the manner
in which the New York Commercial
(republican), representative of corpor
ate interests, refers to Bryan. It avers
that some portions' of the Denver plat
form do not harmonize exactly with
the vlews of Bryan, and then adds:
"But most careful and Impartial
readers of this very remarkable docu
ment will, we believe, agree that it is
more radical than the man who goes
before the people on it for their sup
port, their sympathy, and their votes;
this may or may not bo- indicated in
what Mr. Bryan may take occasion to
say when the notification committee
calls on him at Lincoln or in his for
mal letter of acceptance of the nom-
nation; but it is safe to predict that
whatever utterances may come from
hiir. during the next four months of
fervid campaigning will reflect his
own individual opinions and beliefs re
gardless of the platform; to assume
otherwise would be to discredit that
independence and that fearlessness
which are among the Nebraskan's
most striking ' characteristics."
This is an honest recognition of the
independence and fearlessness of the

to 1S9G and 1900, the New York Com
"The worst enemy of William Jen
nings Bryan must admit that he goes
before the people in 1908 measureably
stronger than in 1896 and 1904. He
has clearly broadened and grown more
conservative, while the people mean
time hav, on the whole, grown per
ceptibly more radical a circumstance
that brings them more closely to
gether. How near together they real
ly are only election day can tell." -
The Denver convention was a strik
ing illustration of the closeness of
Bryan to the people and the people to
Bryan. His victorious nomination was
an unprecedented unanimity. It was
because the people are close to Bryan
that, nearly every state in the union
sent delegates to Denver instructed
unequivocally for the people's cham
pion. The Argus believes that Bryan
and all the people are' close enough
to insure the election ' of the demo
cratic ticket in November. . .

Tommy's Discovery. By Martha Cobb Sanford.
Copyrighted, 1908, by Associated Literary Press.
For a small periodicHl the Literary
Leaflet had a remarkably well equip
ped force. It employed an editor in
chief, an assistant editor, a fiction ed
itor, a household editor, a receiving
editor, a stenographer and a general
Frederick Maliory Mason. A. B.,
was the editor in chief, and Tommy

Margaret Van Amburgh. B. M. (bache-
lor maid), held all the other positions.
This able trio kept things moving
amicably a state of affairs due to the
editor's never failing good nature, to
Tommy's love of the ludicrous and to

this afternoon. She came near it,
though. Say, but she's a winner'."
Miss Van Amburgh glanced nt the
name, dropped her work and, ignoring
Tommy's gratuitous observations, went
out to meet Miss Elizabeth, Greene
To Tommy's amazement he soon
found himself ushering the "winner'
into the editor's sanctum.
"H'm." he soliloquized w ithin cal
