"It is eminently proper that this convention should define the demo cratic attitude toward the regulation of transportation companies, and call the attention of the country to the indisputable fact that it was only after years of democratic effort that an amendment was made to the in terstate commerce law authorizing the commission to establish reasona ble rates whenever it appeared that an existing schedule was unjust or unreasonable. "The .national platforms of the re publican party remained silent upon this great question for years, and the fact that the necessary change was advocated by a republican presi dent, who succeeded only through he aid. of the democrat In both branch es of congress in placing the amend ment upon our statute books, does not affect the credit to which our party Is entitled for having worked persistenty for such an enactment. Further amendment to our laws giv ing the federal government super vision over the Issuance of railroad stocks and bonds is demanded. "The ffxlng of transportation charges and the control of issuances of railroad securities are- Insepara bly connected with the actual valu ation of railroads. The democratic party believes the first thing to do is to secure a physical valuation of the roads, that is, a valuation of the solid, rather than the liquid, assets of railroad companies. "While, on the other hand, the re publican party, on a roll-call in the convention, by an overwhelming vote. tookv an unequivocal stand In favor of a system of water rates without giving the people the benefit of a I meter. . ' Retrenchment and Reform. I "We search in vain for one syllable I In the Chicago platform pledging the I republican party to retrenchment and rerorm; ana it is no mere coinci dence that has , given us a billion dollar session of congress on the eve i of a national election and the pos sible revision of the tariff, j "So long as we maintain the pres !ent method oft selecting United , States senators we cannot hope that the upper chamber of congress will reflect the popular will. On five 'different occasions the house of rep resentatives has passed a constitu tional amendment providing for the election of United States senators by the direct vote of the people, but these measures have been sandbag ged in the senate by those who are determined that the senate shall not become an integral pure of our free, representative Institutions. "The democratic party will con tinue to labor for the direct election of United States senators, and it ap peals to the voters of America to elect members of -the different state legislatures who will pledge them selves to vote for no candidate for the United States senate that is not In favor of this reform. ' "The affirmative position of the questions will be made clear during the Impending campaign, and dis daining all subterfuges, it 'will speak in a language that cannot be mis understood. Its voice will ring with a genuine love for humanity and the charge of Insincerity will never be democratic party upon these great brought to its doors. Sentiment of Platform.

The change will, however, oceur in the inverse order. The very narrow, silvery, crescent will continually widen, its form becoming exactly that of a half circle on Sep tember 14th. . THE PLANET URANUS. For a few months, therefore, there will be. no bright planet visible in the early evening. Our next visitor will be the beautiful Saturn, but this will not euter the evening sky until Sep tember. On its return its riugs will be seen to lie much more opened out than when it disappeared in February, so that in the' telescope it will be a most interesting object. In the absence of brighter planets the iiossessor of a small telescope may search for the faint Uranus, which is in the constellation Sagittarius not far from the bright star K. Figs 1 and All of the stars of this region are shown in the small map of Fig. 3, so that with the help of this and Fig. '1 the observer should be able to find this little-known world without diffi culty. . Uranus shines out with a dull green ish light as a star of about the sixth magnitude. It is said to be visible to the uaked eye, hut it is probable that iu its present position, surrounded, by the multitude of stars in the Milky Way, it cannot be detected without a telescope. We know that it is a great world, thirty thousand miles in diam eter, and that as with Jupiter and Sat urn there is probably nothing solid about it. It is still very hot and prob ably in a vaporized condition; it is so expanded by its beat that it is only slightly heavier than water. It is cross-1 ed by In in t bauds jnttt as Jupiter is, and Li attended by four little moons, each but a few hundred miles in diam eter, and the innermost of which re volves about the planet in only two and a half days, but all of these details ire only visible in the very largest telescope. THE STAUS OF THE MILKY WAY. After finding Uranus, the observer will be well repaid if be examines this whole region of the sky from Sagittari us to Aquila. Even without a teles cope the peculiar brightness of this part of the Milky Way and its wonderfully intricate, knotted, or cloud-like struct ure is most striking, but with a small glass almost every part of it reveals interesting and beautiful details. Throughout this part of the sky beau tiful star . dinners are very numerous. Of these the ones at A. B, C and D, Figs. 1 and 2, are visible to the naked eye as bright spots in the Milky Way, while in the telescope they each appear as a great swarm of suns packed close ly together, the whole background ap pearing as if covered with star dust. The arrsrngement-of this multitude of sans into great streams in some places, their massing into clouds snd compact clusters in others, and the separation of the Milky Way into two parts sug gests that acting upon his whole uni verse of stars there is some evolving force, unconsciously vast, whose cause and nature are as yet wholly unknown to ua. : This region is also very rich in faint nebulas and ia double stars. At E is the Horseshoe nebula and Antares it serf is surrounded by a great nebulous cloud of such inconceivable extent Chat light must require hundreds of years to pass through it. The stars at I G and II are interesting naked eye doubles; the J.ist shows a striking con trast in color, the larger stnr of the pair being golden and the smaller blue. . Above Sagittarius, is the Kagle, whoe brightest star Altair is the standard first" magnitude star of the heareus, and above this is Cygiius, the beauti ful Northern Cross, whose earliest des ignation was probably the fabled Koc of ancient mythology. The region of the sky beitween Aquila, Lyra and Cyg nus contains so many red stars that it is sometimes culled the lied Ilegion of Cygnus. ' The' star at L is probably the most lieautiful double star in the heavens. Abrtte Cygnus stnnds C'epheus with one foot on the Pole and the other on the Solstitial colore, while between these groups the faint Lizard stretches across the Milky Way. In this region the star N is an interesting variable. and perhaps the reddest star, visible to ike Our Prices Always the Lowest The Store That Al ways Gives Bargains II SA for TOOAY Unbleached Muslin UNBLEACHED MUSLIX, yard wide, good quality, suitable kind for house lining and other purposes; excellent value at 7Vic a yard.

Lies in the Fight Between Bryan and Guffey. It is conceded that If Guffey should be defeated, which would be the re sult of the seating of an anti-Guffey delegation from Philadelphia, that will end the opposition to Bryan and all the fighting spirit will be taken out of the anti-Bryan men.

The star at R is a pretty double in a small telescope. As we follow along the Milky Way we are strongly remiudrd of the poeti cal view which the Indians held of it. that it was the ashen path crowded with the souls of their heroes who are journeying to the hereafter, the bright er stars along the Road marking their camp-fires. Oddly enough, to the an cient Hindus, it was also a road lead ing to the throne in, Elysium. . The Patagonians, however, to-day describe it merely as the road on which their tad friends are hunting ostrich s. o THE PROBABILITY OF RAIN It may or may not rain today. The rec ords show that the chances are against it but the records also show that the chances are stronger for rain this day than any other day in the year. For the last twelve years it has rained three times on July 8. No oth er day it is said has such a showing to its credit. But at the best accord ing to form, it is a four to one shot that it will not rain today. Denver, July 7. The possibility of , road to tne adoption of whatever char-. actor of platform they favor and no showing whatever should be made against him for the nomination for tho. first place on the ticket. ' . Should the Bryan men be so dis posed, they could dictate also the nomination for the vice presidency Gossip over candidates for vice pres-- ident has been completely overshad- a revolt by delegates not in sympathy with the Bryan control of the demo cratic national convention, against the parliamentary practices employed by the officers of the convention today in sending the Pennsylvania contro versey to the committee on credentials, is the only hope left the allied opposi tion to Bryan's nomination. This op position Is proceeding with the belief I owp(1 by the events of the day. and that the committee on credentials will report against the contested delegates from Philadelphia who favor the elec tion of Col. James M. Guffey for na- low races of the east. Some protection jtional committeeman, in which event a has been offorded by the exclusion of i minority report will be made.

To Exclude Asiastics. "Not only the white toilers in Amer ica, but all our people, without respect to class or residence, are vitally Inter ested in this menace to our social and industrial life from Asiatic quar ters, and if this is to remain a white man's country immmliate steps should be taken to prevent Asiatic immigra tion of whatsoever character. "This convention is meeting at a time when the agnel of iieace is hov ering over the entire world, and the nations of the earth, each day are strengthening those ties of friendship and common interest that will render war less frequent and permit mankind jto turn their hands to the peaceable pursuits of lite, ratner tnan to tne ue struction of one another. "The democratic party realizes the part that America must play in the affairs of the world, and that we can not escape participation in the settle ment of every world problem that arises, but America's weight and in fluence must ever be on the side of peace, on the side of just i to. on the side of the oppressed, aud if the will of the people shall, commit to our bands the sceptre of power, it will be useil for the realization of the high American ideals that raise our own people to loftier and better things and through our precepts and examples Every woman covets shapely figure, and many of them de plore the loss of their girlish forms after mar riage.

' adoption of the report of the creden tials committee, and it promises to be the bitterest in the convention. Should it be decided against the Bryan men, some of whom have announced their purpose to "railroad" the Pennsylvania leader out of the party in accordance with the expressed wish of the Xe- I braska candidate, unquestionably it j will encourage the opposition to Bryan to renewed efforts to defeat him for the presidential nomination. Xo sooner had the convention ad- journed today than the anti-Bryan men began to gather and discuss the situation. At several of these Infor mal conferences the consensus of opin ion was that the Guffey-Bryan fight furnished the issue on which the anti Bryan men could take a stand and sup plied the rallying ground that had been needed in order to concentrate their forces. It is asserted by the anti Bryan men tonight that the refusal to day of Temporary Chairman Bell to recognize the demand of the Guffey men for a roll call on the question of sending the Pennsylvania case to the credentials committee brought them many recruits, and these added to the force that has been against Bryan on other points, promises a victory' for Guffey tomorrow. On the other hand the Bryan men claim to have Guffey's scalp already hanging from the belt of their leader, and declare that they are not worried in the least. Much is being made by the Guf fey men of differences which Bryan has had with such men as Roger Sullivan of Illinois; John T McGraw of West Virginia, and certain democratic lead ers in Texas. Tennessee, Wisconsin. Michigan and other states. They pro fess to believe that the delegations from these states are anxious to ad minister a rebuke to Bryan for his al leged, interference with state degelates in selecting representatives to the con vention after the states themselves had declared in favor of the. nomination of the Xehraskan. Should the anti-Bryan men prove to be correct' In the estimates of "the sil-i uation. Bryan without doubt will be defeated In his attempt to overturr Guffev of Pennsylvania. It is not un likely that' the contest over the issues will- engender the bitterest feeling and will have an important bearing on the 'vote of the convention a'fter the candidates have been placed in nomination for the presidency. . there is little change in the situa tion. There are' nearly a hundred-men- in the field. Such leaders as have found time to give attention to. the vice presidential situation to night, however, seemed to think that the Bryan-Guffey contest, having be come a national convention issue, there is little hope left of the nomi nation of a conservative eastern democrat on the ticket with Bryan. The feeling is there is such grave danger of the alienation of the con servative wing of the party that n man representing that wing would consent to being named.

State Senator Grady of Xew York, who was in the chair, temporarily yleided the gavel in , order to de nounce the resolution as wholly un- democratic.
