VejchMf HARTFORD; KY WEDlffiEgBAY, JULY 7, BRYAN STRENGTH GOESMILSON For Renomination, Says Senator Kern, WHO IS )WELLPOSTED MAN One Term Plank Will Have Not Feather's Weight in Nomination. THE ESSENCE OF SIX REASONS Washington, July 3. John W. Kern, Democratic leader ot the Sen ate, lays down three propositions which are highly interesting, If not illuminating. Here they are as au thoritatively stated by him: "First There will be no war be tween tho United States and any other country. "Second Wjoodrow Wilson will be the unajtfniQu? jiomlneo f o tbc next National Democratic conven tion to succeed himself as President. "Third That Woodrow Wilson will have no mqre earnest and de voted supporter, both beforehand af ter the convention, than that great American commoner, William Jen nings Bryan. ' Having enunciated these three propositions, Sejmtbr Kern said: "And I might! add that when Woodrow Wlsn shall have been re-elected to the Presidency ih 191(J it will be conceded that no one man has contributed more to that happy event than Mr. Bryan." Speaking ot threes, there are three reasons why Senator Kern's prophecy as to the renomination of President, Wilson by acclamation is highly' Interesting,, as follows: First Senator Kern was chair man, of tho Platform Committee of the Baltimore national convention. which declared to bo in favor of only one Presidential term Second Senator Kern probably is tho closest man on earth to William Jennings Bryan, who wrote the one term plank of tho platform, and was Mr. Bryan's1 running mate on the national ticket In 1908. Third Senator Kern Is the lead er of his party In the nation's high est law-making body, and his words have special weight on that account. Senator Kern's flatfooted and urw equivocal declaration as to the course that Mr, Bryan will pursuo is bound to cause a great deal of talk, as it is natural for Democrats everywhere to assume that he ifei speaking by the card: As far as the one-term plank of the platform is concerned, tho posi tion of Senator Kern, who was chairman of tho Committee on Res olutions, and read the platform, is an affirmation of the general under standing among Democratic leaders that. It Is not 'to, have a feather's weight toward Yftrevontlng the re nomination of President WUson. Norta tilery any likelihood that the pne-term plank will bo repeated In the platform of next year. Prospective candidates for Dem ocratic nominations, from senator ships down to constabulary pfflces, are of one mind in regard to the one-torra plank ot the last national platform. They see no need of pay ing any heed to it, They want President Wilson to run again be cause they think his foreign policy has made him the most popular man in the country, and they need him to help pull them through, Her Woes Arc Many.

NO. 27 STAGGERING ARE THE WAR FIGURES More Than 2,150,000 Have Been Killed IN THE EUROPBUj STRUGGLE A Frightful Slaughter Of Men At the Behest Of Mad Kings. A COMPARISON OF CEMETERIES Under the sod of 300 acres of Calvary Cemetery lie 900,000 dead; 400,000 more slumber In their graves In tho C00 acres of Green wood's shelter. A total ot 1,300,000 in these two Immense resting places of weary mankind, who closed their eyes in isolated caBes of fatal ill ness, in accidents, or of old age. And many decoder rolled u"tfn"flie"sTbpeV of time ere this vast number of mounds was built over the remains of frail humanity. For orderly and slow is the procession from life to death as decreed by the Almighty. But there He to-day in Russia, In Gnllcla, in France, In Belgium nnd In Flanders, the corpses of 2,150, 000 men who died since the begin ning of last August by the hand of other men, ruthlessly slaughtered In the bloom of life. They were mostly strong, nnd happy, and glad of the sunshine, and laboring in the fields of peace. And then a few mad kings lashed them against each other, and so It happens that in the 11 months since the outbreak of tho war nearly twice as many have died than were burled In scores of years In Calvary and In Greenwood. And trails of hot tears lead from mora than 2.000,000 homes in the cities and tho hamlets of the warring countries to the blood-stained graves on the battle fields. , Thfa fa lint ntiR alria1ff1it nti tlin .vnr . ,, ,,, . m n. , flgurcg recenUy raade pubUc T, glve tho totnl ,oss ag s.831(0o0 whlchi , adlUon to the dead al,ud. ed to lncIudc8 3.7S1.000 slightly , wounded; 1,150,000 prisoners.
