Charles Sumner Bird, progressive
candidate for governor, was present
and delivered an inspiring address.
j-He was introduced as the "exponent
'of true humanitarianism," and the
audience expressed its approval by
prolonged cheering. Bandana hand

Mr. Bird is one of the largest in

'place of the old 12-hour shift. This

are credited to him.
Mr. Bird is a hard hitter politically
and he minced no words in his cen

"Wo denounce the republican party
because of fraud committed at Chi

support any beneficiary of that con

its support to the initiative, referen

The men who have Wilson's candi
dacy in charge will offer strenuous
resistance,-it is said, to Bryan's tak
ing part in the campaign or making
any appearance on the stump in cer
tain eastern states. They are not
wholly content with hist voluntary and
officially unauthorized appearance in
stajtes where progressive sentiment
presumably is strong. They fear him
greatly and dislike him intensely, but
happily Bryan occupies a positon that
quite removes him from their control
and comes or goes as he lists. He

who are managing Wilson's candi

need of having Wilson's countenance.
It is', possible, of course, that some
message of gratitude may have been

recognition of the great services ren

TO GIVE A SINGLE REASON WHY
been unselfishly solicitous of proving
that Wilson had extended suehrecog-"
nition. It may be that in these con
siderations, if they stood fully reveal
ed, would be found the explanation of
the fact that while Mr. Bryan talked
for more than two hours yesterday
afternoon to many thousands of men
and women, he devoted less, than ten
minutes to the. candidate in, whose be
half ostensibly he appeared.
The most remarkable fact as to
Bryan's address was one of omfeaion.
He did not present, a single reason'
why any- progressive, republican.: or
democratic, should vote for Wilson:
He was disingenious in dealing with
Jloosevelt's candidacy, presenting
therein a melancholy instance of the
injurious requirements partisanship
makes, and In his case; successfully,
upon men of high character. The. Ex
press conceives itself tQ, be at liberty
to comment thus on Bryan's speech,
inasmuch as it entertains for hint an
admiration, liking and respect that are
not to be dissipated because he has-,
unhappily yielded to the temptation to
be more partisan than patriotic. ' -
Prophecies are ever hazardous.-' It
it not given to mortals to foretell the.
future. Yet, should Wilson beelected,
we do not doubt that Bryan would
within a few months thereafter find ;
his place in the progressive party that
he now unmistakenly opposes. The
inevitable surrender that would fol
low of the cause of progress to the.
cause of reaction would sunder the '
last ties that still unite Bryan to dem
ocracy. Even as the situation now
exists it is amazing that Bryan should"
stand, though perfunctorily, for a can
didate who himself refuses to' stand
on his own platform.
