TO BE LEKOER Popular Ncbraskan Trainihg to Put Democracy on New Lincs. THE FEAR OF SOCIALISM Battle Lincs May bc Drawn Bc tween thc Radicals and Conscrvativc3. By Walter Edward Harris. (Speclal From a Staff Corrospondent.) NEW YORK, Novembcr 0.?Thoso Dem ocrnts, who conductod , tho campalgn agalnst Roosovelt, are moro dceply im presscd now wlth tho need of conser vatlsm ln tho Democratlc party than they wero when they fought for and se cttred the nomlnatlon of Payker. Two facts havo beon most deoply Impresscd upon mo to-day In the courso of con versatfona wlth Democrata of varlous shadc3 'of bolief, one is that tho conser vatlvo dlomcnt of tho party must strug glo oa never beforo to provent tho pen dultim swlnging furthor backward than lt dld elght or four years ago. Tho other fact was tho froquently exprcssed be linf that a Southcrn man should be put ttp b3r tho Democrats to make the flght in 1908. Thore wlll be made a tremond ous effort on the part of tho most radl? cal elemont of "tho Domocrntlo party to gnln control of tho organizatlon and nom inato tho caridldato In 1908. Thirsting for Control. Mr. Bryan has sald openly a num bor of tlmcs ln the post throo months thnt lt was hoped that ho aud hls frlends would havo control of tho organizatlon after tho elcction. Ho has a tremendous foilowlng In.lhe party, exclualvo of.those (loyal Democrats who wlll support the ?tlcket nomlnated whether tno plotfonn roprcsents thelr oxnet optnlons or not. Whon to thls class are addod the Popu lists and Soclallsts, dt wlll bo readlly seen that he wlll have a most formlda blo foilowlng, It ls casy to soo rlght now that tho flrst groat polltical strug glo or tho next four years wlll be be? tween itho conservatlvo andradicail Dom ocrncy for the control of the party or? ganizatlon.. A most slgnlflcant fact In connecUon with thls subject Is that men who dld not vote thc Democratic ticket thls year are belng put forward as falr representaUves of tho class, which should control the party. Bryan's Friends Active. I was struck wlth thls t'act to-day when a radlcal Democrat, who hopes nnd Is predlctlng that Bryan wlll .be nomlnated four years hence, spoke of Tom Watson, tho late Popullst presldentlnl candidatc, ln tho samo breath with Bryan as a man thoroughly representatlye of thc hopes and thc aims of true Democracy. There enn bo no question that the tre? mendous majorities rccelved, by Mr. Roosevelt iln many of the Stntes, wero in part due to tho refusal of. many sup portcrs of Mr. Bryan four yeai* ago 'to voto for tho Democratlc jiominee thls year. Complete returns will show thls even more, clcarfy than lsapparent now. An analysls of the offlcial returns of the electlon ls confldontly expected to sliow that the Sociallst voto was much larger thls year than over before. Thls wll] bo accounted for ln pant by tho fact that. many men who four years ago supportcd Mr. Bryan, who has dcclared for government ownorship pi ratlroads, went over to the Soclallsts thls year, tho increased Sociallst voto expected to bo shown will also bo due largeiy to the natural growth ln Soclallstic sentdment, which has hecn most rcmarkable ln tho past twonty years. The Lines of Battle. The growth of Soclalism ls looked upon by conservaUvo Democrats aa probnbly tho most portentous omen of tho great strugglo for control of the party organ? izatlon which must be fought out with in. tho next four years. The long con tlnued supremacy of tho Republlcan par? ty and Its policy of goyernmental fa vorltlsm of helping one ctass through the opornitlon of tarlff laws to becomo wealthy at tho cxpenso of the niasses of the poople, representing consumers of products, has had tho effect of fosterlng tho growtn of Soclalism unlcss Mr. Rooso? velt, ln the.courso of the next four years should recode from hls sUmd pot attt tudo and pennlt a revlsion of tarlff schcdulcs, tho effects of tarlff opprcs alon In closing our markcts abroad and bulldlng and strengthenlng dospotic mo nopollea at home, wlll mako radicals of many thousands, who votod to "stand pat" yesterday. Will Make Socialists. I voico tho scntlmont of two of. tho cloarest headod men ln tho Democratlc party. wtion I say that four years more of opprcsslon by tarlff nnd trusts wlll mako about as many Soclallsts as Dem ocratS'. It ls certuln that lt will mako the radlcal eloment of tho Democratlo party many thousawls stronger than it ls to-day.' lt Is probablo that never he? foro ln tho hlstory of tho polltical par tlos of thls- country has lt beon so casy to foresco evohta aa lt is to forecast tho strugglo, which wlll bo fought out wlthlti tho Democratic party boforo an? other Presldent shall havo boen chosen.
