"The democrats need about 95
votes after conceding to them
the 13 states of the solid south.
The question is whether among
the votes needed they caa count
upon New York for 36.
There in New York, certain
corporate and monied interests
are undoubtedly in favor of Par
ker, the same monied interests
which threw themselves on the
side of Cleveland in 1892. Also
the same newspapers, in Greater
New Yoik—the Herald, Times,
World, Evening Post and the
Brooklyn Eagle, all of them in
fluential dailies—are now favor
able to the election of Parker.
He is also favored by some of the
so-called mugwump element.
On the other hand Mr. Roose
velt has a magnetic personality.
In him are notably the elements
which make the popular hero.
He will receive the popular vote
in New York as elsewhere, if it be
not controlled by the foregoing
monied interests and influences."

It is conceded by democrats
everywhere that Grover Cleve
land reorganizers have taken
full control of the Parker
paign and of the democratic ma
chine once more. The manner iu
which Mr. Parker's managers
conducted the St. Louis conven
tion is so palpably conformable
to the Cleveland regime of 1893
and years following that,
no one who reflects on the past
can help seeing the same element
and the same monied interest
which, during the time, wrecked
and ruined the country and
humiliated even the democratic
party, which turned them down
in 1896, and wiped them out of
position if not out of political
existence as a punishment for
their crime are again in control, j
In the face of all this is it possi
ble that Idaho democrats, or
that any sane person, regardless
of party, can now endorse, ap
prove, sustain or vote for that
same combination ? Oh, no !
Most of them will think better of
The chairman of the demo
cratic national central committee
is one of the proprietors of -a
notorious gambling house. He
is just the man to stack the
cards for the Wall street
biers who named the candidate
for the presidency, but we ven
ture to assert that he never yet
has turned as neat a trick as
Hill played on the Bryan crowd
at the St. Louis convention when
he slipped that gold plank card
into the deck after the nomina
tion was' made.
The Avalanche seems to have
been worried because, under the
"able leadership" of four
named, "and others" the repub
lican county convention was
manipulated so that six of the
seven delegates elected to the
state convention were forniust
somebody and in favor of Coffin
for state treasurer. Did the
writer not foresee that the dem
ocratic convention to be held the
next day after the item was pub
lished, instead of being manipu
lated by four men and others,
would be entirely dominated by
one man — and that man the
writer of the aforesaid item?
It would be difficult, if not im
possible, to conceive of a more
inconsistent position than that
now occupied by Mr. Bryan as
supporter of Judge Parker for
the presidency. If he believes
what he has been incessantly
preaching on the money question
during the past eight years and
what he was asserting in regard
to Judge Parker for weeksimme
diately preceding the democratic
convention, how can he now sup
port a candidate whose nomina
tion was accomplished by the
very influences that Mr. Bryan
says will not only ruin the dem
ocratic party but in a few years
the government itself? What be
comes of all his doctrines whose
establishment was necessary to
the preservation of the republic
if he supports for the presidency
a man thrust upon the party by
August Belmont and other
wealthy men who dislike Presi
dent Roosevelt for the position
he has taken against the trusts?
Can any one seriously think that
Mr. Bryan does not know he is re
pudiating all his pet theories by
supporting Judge Parker?
The most probable explana
tion of his position is this: Mr.
Bryan has been outwitted. He
evidently thought he and his fol
lowers could dictate the nomina
tion of the democratic conven
tion, and before he realized his
mistake he had placed himself in
a position which made it suicidal
anything thatDavid B. Hill and
August Belmont chose to give
fur him to halt. The only thing
he could do was then to take
him. Hence his docility in the
face of Judge Parker's declara
tion that he considers the gold
standard as "irrevocably fixed.
To all intents and purposes that
declaration is written into the
platform of the democratic party
and is receiving the support of
the man who has been for eight
years the ideal of those who wor
shipped a free silver god. —
