ARIZONA, JULY 10, 1908. A PARTY'S PREDICAMENT. While there was never a doubt of the nomination of Mr. Bryan his followers could not feel perfectly at ease until it had been ascertained to what extent the vote on the creden tials committee report was a test vote. That a very large majority of those who supported the minority re port were moved more by antagon ism to Mr. Bryan than by any other consideration is certain, btit It seemed hardly poossible that the same forces should be held intact in opposition to his nomination. It is quite evident that Bryan could have been defeated in the primaries and the county " and state conven tions if there had been an organized effort to do so. The organization . would have been easy if all who were opposed to his nomination had believed it wise to defeat him. Some of his enemies preferred a chance of democratic success to a certain re publican victory and they believed rightly that the democracy had no other candidate who could reasonably be expected to bring about demo cratic success. v . There was no other who could hold the .radical element of the dem ocratic party together and the radical element is by far the largest part of it. Bryan is its idol. overthrown by the conservative wing, his followers would undoubtedly ex press their resentment at the polls. The conservatives had not forgot ten the fate of Parker, with whose nomination Bryan professed satisfac tion. His followers however knew that he was not satisfied and by their apathy if not by their active partic ipation, Parker was overwhelmed. But if Bryan as a candidate for the nomination were defeated the conservative wing realized that the Bryan element would lead even the republicans in the slaughter of the democratic candidate. This was the view taken by the conservatives early In the campaign for the nomination. Occurrences at Denver within the last four days have strengthened that view. The election of Bryan may be regarded as hope less but no more so than that of any other, democratic candidate. His en emies - seeing slaughter inevitable preferred that Bryan should be the slaughtered. ministration could not force state hood. But there is now no more controversy between the national par ties on this subject than there is among the citizens of Arizona. All are for statehood. We know of noth ing that can obstruct our admission now unless it would be the folly of making statehood a party issue in Arizona again . to the end that the democrats might be elected to the county oTflces and that a democrat might be elected as delegate to con gress. It would be proper for the people of Arizona to keep the statehood question alive and see that congress does not forget it amid the multi plicity of its duties, but that is the business of united Arizona, and not of the democratic or the republican party. In view of this plain situa tion, we think the voters will un derstand in the approaching territo rial and county campaigns, .that the fervid orators who introduce this subject as a party Issue are talking for offices and not 'for statehood. "Wags" ought to know that a yelp is a manifestation of pain, produced by a kick or some other act of violence. Though, sometimes, even a threat of violence is sufficient to evoke a yelp. People do not like either the knocker" or the "hollerer," but it is human to hold the latter in less re spect. This is merely the observa tion of a fact and not a defense of "knockers." The man who would "knock" "Wags" would be capable of cruelty toward the innocent lamb, yes, to ward the unborn babe. VENEZUELA CUTS LOOM: (Continued from Page One) legation at Washington. Therefore he would leave the capital at the ear liest moment he could arrange his domestic affairs to do so, which would be done tomorrow. He will proceed directly to New York and there take passage for Venezuela on Saturday. The minister leaves be hind him in Washington his family and household effects but these will probably follow in the near future. Just what took place between Mr. Bacon and the charge cannot be learned beyond the fact that the lat ter presented his letters of recall.

Senor Veloz did communicate with Mr. Bacon the fact that the files of very much alike. The feeling of re sentment bred by the rupture gradual ly becomes less acute and at the proper moment a friendly third party steps in and brings about a restora tion of amicable relations. Possibly in our own case the process may be more rapid than usual. Veloz's withdrawal follows that of Minister Russell, the last diplomatic representative of the United States to Venesuela about two months ago and that of Sleeper, secretary of legation, and. Lieutenant Ruggles, military at tache about two weeks ago. The rea son for the withdrawal of the Ameri can legation from Caracas arose from the persistent refusal of Venezuela to give redress for governmental action by which all American interests In Venezuela were either destroyed or confiscated or. to submit the claims of American citizens to arbitration. There are five of these claims. Those of A. J. Jaurett, the Orinoco Corporation, the Orinoco Steamship company, the New York and Bermudez Asphalt com pany and the Critchfield concession. Various attempts have been made by preceding administrations to settle the claims. Secretary Hay having gone so far one time as to lay down what was regarded almost as an ultimatum. Sec retary Root In 1907 In a letter to Min ister Russell instructed him to demand immediate redress. Russell however was unable to obtain satisfaction from Castro's government which adhered to the position that there was no reason why Venezuela should arbitrate the chtims. President Roosevelt sent the whole correspondence bearing upon the claims of congress long before the recent ses sion closed, but It was evident that the senate would not initiate any ac tion, although Mr. Root aupeared be fore the committee on foreign relations repeatedly to discuss the situation. Public opinion it was declared had not crystallized sufficiently to warrant the senate In taking action while the per sons and firms having commercial in terests in Venezuela which might be affected by punitive measures were urging that action be delayed. An incident which caused consider able comment because of the strained relations was the opening of the mail of men on the cruiser Tacoma by offi cials of the La Oualra postoffice. Cas tro's reply was that it was done in advertently. o -t WE ARE OFFERING A SEVEN ROOM Brick House Modern bath and toilet, large cel lar, big screen porch, large barn, lighted by electri city, fine shade J and lawn; Lot 87 by 248 feet and enclosed with page wire fence i for $37503 on easy terms, t Green & Griffin Real Estate oV Invest- 127 North Center St, Mill H M"M"HM"M"fi I I VI- M..;.

Just about this time of year, every biennial year, the statehood question is made a political issue by our democratic friends. We have reason to believe that but for that thing the territory would have had a bet ter chance of admission.. The Tucson Citizen is now endeav oring to revive the old trick at a time when there is nothing to be gained by it, beyond fooling the vot ers by making them believe that the sole hope of admission lies in dem ocratic success, incidentally local democratic success. "The statehood plank in the Den ver convention," says the Citizen, "will be an unequivocal guarantee of immediate admission." Passing over the fact that platform planks are guarantees of nothing and are only recommendations of party policies, we may say mat the plank (.dopred by the republicans at Chicago i3 as unequivocal as a recommendation can be and thai, moreover. It r;p-csents a change of view, based upon new information concerning Arizona, by powerful republican senators and rep resentatives who have hitherto op posed admission. That plank is there fore a guaranty that those who have i been against us are now for us. Without the aid of those republi cans, especially those in the senate, there can ' be no statehood immedi ately or' within the .next two years for that long at least there Is no possibility of "overturning the republi can majority. Thus it Is patent that the Denver convention can "guarantee" nothing; that even a democratic national ad- H i 1 I I I I I I I f I I 1 I 1 1 I I I 11 1' The Great Reduction Sale T Is still remaining all through T I the week at the White House X the Venezuelan legation will be plac- c,othInK Co.

This statement is regarded as an indication that the Venezuelan government has followed the precedent established - by the United States in refraining from I X closing the consulates, notwithstand ing a breach in diplomatic relations. No arrangement has been made for the transaction of any diplomatic business which Venezuela might find absolutely necessary to transact through some unforeseen contingency. Taking leave of Mr. Bacon and ac- j cepting the suggestion that he com- municate in writing to Secretary 1 Root, Senor Veloz paid hasty calls upon Assistant Secretaries Aide, ' Huntington and Willson and other j officials of the state department i whom he has long and intimately i known. Of course, officially there was nothing for these gentlemen to I say beyond the mere formalities j when they were acquainted with the fact that the Venezuelan charge had I been withdranw. But possibly they did not hesitate to express sincere j regret, for Veloz had . come to be very highly regarded In diplomatic circles. Indeed it may be stated pos itively from actual knowledge that what he has done In the years he has passed in Washington as the rep resentative of Venezuela has gone far toward deferring the rupture which came today. Speaking- of the matter, Mr. Bacon said that the personality of Veloz had nothing to do with the severance of diplomatic relations between the two countries. He . was .very sorry to see eloz go, as their relations had been very friendly. Veloz sub mitted no written memorandum on the subject, but made his communi cation with the department verbally. Now, as to the future, it is pointed out by officials who have followed closely the developments of the Ven ezuelan situation that there is not the slightest danger of war in the imme diate future or indeed at all. Rather the situation will resemble that fol lowing the rupture of diplomatic-relations between France and Venezuela. In that instance the legations were closed on both sides and all official relations were terminated while the trade between the two countries con tinued. Frenchmen came to Vene zuela and rich Venezuelans made an nual pilgrimages to Paris as If nothing had occurred.
