There is no reason why any demo
crat should fail to support Clark, for
his loyalty to the party and its nom
inees has never faltered. No repub
lican has ever gotten any comfort out
of anything Clark has said of any fel
low democrat. Clark would not be op
posed either by the Bryan or Parker
factions of the party.
No one questions Champ Clark's hon
esty, ability, democracy or patriotism.

The story of the Warren case has
attracted national interest. Warren is
a native of Illinois and is 38 years of
age. He is a son of a Methodist min
ister, and a direct descendant of the
Warren who died at Bunker Hill.
When he was IS years of age he be
came the editor of a paper at Rich
Hill. Mo. He was a republican in pol
itics and the superintendent of a Sun
day school. When not fighting for his
i party he was warring against the sa-
loons. Warren became a socialist at
about the same time that Bryan first
j ran for president. Ten years ago he
i took editorial charge of the Appeal to
Reason, and since he has been at the
helm on that paper and has incrtjased
its circulation from 25,000 to more
than a half million.
SCESTED A CONSPIRACY.
Warren felt that there was a con-
! spiracy against the Colorado miners
! and plunged into the thick of the fight
J to save those who were accused. It
; happened that Steunenberg was not
j the only governor who had been assas
! sinated. Jan. 30, 100, William Goebel,
! governor-elect, was killed at Frank-
fort, liy., by shots said to have been
i fired from the state house windows.

j Warren was not arrested for this ut
terance. He conceived the idea of i
j printing the offer of the reward on I
j the ouyide of his office envelopes. He
took the precaution to submit his plan
to the postmaster of Girard, Kan., who
! prompth assured Warren that such j
: matter was not in violation of law. j
j Several thousand of these envelopes '
were mailed from tbe Apieal office, in j
! consequence of which Warren was in- '
i dieted in May. lftOT, by a federal grand j
'jury. The indictment asserted that the
printing on the envelopes was "of aj
