CARLTON HOTEL, Montreal Now being erected. To open Autumn 1912 IMMlllllllllllllllllllllllllM Colonel Watterson Wants Ne? braska Leader to Abandon His Tariff Activities. ^ Louisville, Ky? June 2.?Under th? caption, "Coma Off, Mr. Bryan." Mr. "Watterson suys in the Courier-Journal: "liven Theodoru Hooscvelt contrived to weather the tariff and Jcave it t?* Iiis successor. It was quite certain that when the Democrats took the initiative they would require among themselves a compromising spirit, ask? ing and reasonably expecting of tho public patience and forbearance. AVlth this in mind. It seems to us that Mr. Underwood lias thus far displayed good qualities of constructive statesmanship and legislative leading. "?The Democrats have acquired in Congress merely tho right to propose. They simply 'have the door' In thf! lower house. First, and above all else, 1 they needs must show the capacity to , Mo' and outlive und refute tho accusa? tion of 'excess.' The country has swal? lowed enough of dogma. What the peo? ple want is deed:'. Warning to Peerless One. "William Jennings Bryan owes it to his own fame, aswoll as to his fellow Democrats, to proceed warily and go slow In Hie matter of censorship, lie should be- very mire both of his footing and his Judgment before attempting to stir the depths and muddy the stream Jlis three defeats for the presidency not only bring him In lifelong debt to his political associates, but .they ad? monish him not to be too self-conti dent, It seems the part of wisdom for a hi Hi i now occupying his exceptional position to rest awhile from agita? tions, even from counsels, and to let well enough have a chance In the race after perfection. "We are beginning to hear talk about 'the doctrine of freo raw mate? rials.' it is as thee haiter of children. There can no more be a 'doctrine' on i such a subject than a 'doctrine' touch-' lng 'the free coinage of silver at tho ratio of sixteen to one.' Having gone to destruction upon the rocks raised up by the latter, shall the shallows ol the other be allowed to impede our onward course, to perplex and undo us? Fing Still Aloft. "The Courier-Journal can hardly be accused and cannot be suspected of a disposition to lower its flag In the matter of the tariff. it is the last survivor of the old guard of revenue reform. Heart-broken, It saw its party fatally shipwrecked by most incom? petent navigation, literally wrecked in port. It hud ahandonod hope. Yet it has lived to seo the question come again. "Taking counsel of the past?even of some of Its own mistakes which Mr. Bryan now would copy?it will seek in the coming battle for tho right to achieve rather than to theortve und j declaim. "The Democratic party has for the llrst time In sixteen years enjoyed a little spell of sunshine. We have a living chance to win. But we are not yet musters of the situation. "So come nway, Mr. Bryan. Avast there, and leave the boys a chance to start the old carryall of Democracy In their own way, not In your way. The Courier-Journal Is your friend, not your'enemy. Come off, before your enemies have the right to say that with you It is rule or ruin." I $100,000 LEFT TO ARTISTS I _ j .Urs. Botlaii Brown Provided for Young Men Sbe F.dueated. Los Angeles, Cal..

The progress of this church /under thfl leadership of the Rev. J, T.
