mocrac) cares so little for the party in
the Distiict that it is believed the man
agers at Kansas City would not care a rap
whether delegates were sent from Wash
ington at all. But certain it is that the
delegates who get Into the National Con
ven tion from this cit) will be those who
go there in the same spirit that dominates
all other delegations As the anti-Norris
Democrats seem inclined to keep step with
the procession it is considered more than
probable that the) will be admitted to
seats at Kansas City if the rule-or-ruin
Norrlsites should insist upon canning the
content to the National Convention Ap
parently there is no cause for uneasiness

Mr Brian's friends are arra)ed agaiust

indication of what will happen at Kansas
Cit) in Jul) if the Br.van opposition pur
sue their vendetta to the dcois of the Na

litical bosses die hard, and as Norris haa
been the self-constituted boss of the Dis.
trict Democrac) for some time It is not
doubted that he is blind enough to .believe
he can rule the Credentials Committee at
Kansas Cit) as he- has been ruling the
committees formed b) himself in Washing
ton. Last night's enthusiastic meeting,
however, which dcciaied for the renomina
tion of Br)an, can be relied upon to have a
proper effect at Kansas Citv in Jul) It is
confldentl) believed that Mr. James L

Aot After IIiiuhca vlt Both Senator
Piatt and State Chairman Odell have felt
unnecessarilv called upon to enter vig
orous and positive denials to a story in
a sensatioual New York newspaper to the
effect that the) were plotting with Hanna
and the Administration to defeat the re
nomination of Governor Roosevelt be
cause of the Rough Ruler's recently ex
pressed opposition to the Ha)-Pauncefote
Treat) and two or three other pet
schemes of the Administration. The story
has rever gained any credence in Wash
ington Men of sound sense here under
stand perfect!) well that Governor Roose
velt's attitude toward the Administration
is at present exactl) to the liking of Sen
ator Piatt. It enables him to bring the
haught) Hanna to terms on the patronage
question in the next Admlnlsti.it ion If
ever) thing in New York were as the Ad
ministration could wish it, neither Mr.
Hanna nor Mr. McKinle) would have any
further use for Mr. Plutt But as long
as there is danger of trouble, such as
that threatened bv the impetuous Roose
velt's latest breaks, the crafty Piatt can
hold tbo whip hand over the bosses at
Washington With his State machine
Piatt can bring Roosevelt to terms at an)
time demanded b) the exigencies of the
situation Mhr. therefore, should he
want to do the Administration's bidding
at this juncture bv quieting the Rough
j Rider with the threat of defeating him
for rcnomination" Of course, Messrs
' Hanna and McKinle) are ver) eager to
1 have a nadiock nut upon Roosevelt's ttre-
I less lips, but to do so Piatt can got from
them most anv price he ma) think the
job worth Itoosevelt max- be expected
to continue to talk until the Administra
tion is frightened even considerably more
than it is at present. Then Mr
Hanna will realize the necessitv of seek

business with him fter that is done

cular letter is being widel) distributed
from the Baltimore headquarters of tho
Maryland Democratic Association in the
interest of the Br) an Democrac) in the

The letter indicates that a determined
fight is to 'be made throughout the State
for instructed delegations for the silver

tainties In the-couise of the circular the
association savs
There would not be a particle of doubt
of seeming a Br) an delegation from M to

fair and manlj wav We challenge them to
put up delegates in the primaries openl)

"Isn't that a fair proposition'
"But if the) refuse to do this it can onl)
be for the purpose of deceiving persons in
to voting for delegates supposed to be for
Brvan but who would turn out in the con
vention to be against him Therefore we is
sue this warning, which we expect to re
peat, and ask )ou to repeat to others Be
ware of unpledged delegates An) delegate
who refuses to be instructed to vote for
Br) an does not intend to vote for him, an)
delegate who is not pledged for Boan. vcu
may be sure, is secretl) pledged against

themselves to speak, and the onl) wa) they
can do so is b) instructing tlie delegates.
This is our onl) safe course, and the

"An) talk of sending a contesting dele

)OU, b) the National Committee and b)
Mr. Brvan himself, and. besides, it Is folly,
because, if we are a minontv, we have no
right to send a delegation, but if we are
a majority, then, in the absence of fraud,
which is not to be anticipated, we can send
the tegular delegation.
"We biip that a large majorit) of the

that we will cair) the primaries for him.
'The primaries will be called b) the
Democatic State Central Committee in con
junction with the committee of seven in

vote in the primaries, and no others, and
we urge ever) friend of Boan to be sure

MONTREAL, March 21. Sensational evi
dence was given )esterday in the case
against James Baxter and Ferdi
nand Lcmleux, who are on trial
before tho Court cf Queen's
Bench on a charge of conspiracy to defraud
the defunct Ville Marie Bank out of a
large sum of mone). Their operations, it
Is alleged, caused the bank's suspension
Herbert, the bank s teller, has already
pleaded guilt) to the charge of conspiracy,
and is the chief witness against the ac
cused. . Herbert swore that while he was
pa)ing teller he cashed Baxter's checks
for large amounts, though Baxter had no
funds in the bank. Lemieux, who was
manager, had Instructed him to cash the
checks, nnd not to let the directors know
an) thing about it. A few weeks before
the bank suspended, Lemieux had come
to him and taken possession of the
checkb, telling Herbert that he would
keep them until the trouble was ovor
when the amount represented by the
checks, about $45,000, would be divided
between them. Lemieux had subsequent
ly tried to get 115,00 from Baxter but
did not succeed.
The day aft' r the bank failed Herbert
went into hiding, on LeiniHx's advice, and
remained concealed for over five months,
his expenses being paid b) Baxter. While
in hiding he saw Lemieux several times and
was told to lie low and everything would
be all right. After lie was arrested he
got the checks from Mrs. Lemieux and
gave them to tne police.

cause of degeneracy of nations because it
killed off the bravest and strongest men
pnd left the cowards and weaklings to
carry on the government He said that
war had thus been the ruin of the great
empires or the East, of Rome, of Spain
of France, and intimated that he looked
for England's decline. If war vvas a good i
thing, he said, then tlvil vvar was best. J
because it kept the good thing all in the
Of the States of the Union which had
suffered mot for the lack of war. he said
New York and Illinois were tlie most con
spicuous examples New York had grown
tnordinatelv wealthy and Illinois hod
grown Inordinateiv proud He suggested
that these two States go down to the
