The situation gives emphasis to two leading thoughts. One is that the democratic party professing to be the champion of the masses, has fallen under the control of the most dangerous class known iu American politics. The so-called “conserva tism” which has been the watchword of the present campaign has not meant that the democratic party was returning to a fair and statesman like consideration of the legitmate business interests of the country. It has meant simply that the controll ing power has passed from the rank and tile into the hands of. the Wall street gamblers and trust formers, whose business it is to bleed the leg itimate business interests. The second thought is that Mr. Roosevelt has succeeded in convinc ing the Wall street gamblers and wreckers that be is wholly sincere in his efforts to euforce the Sherman law.

Arguments for Western Democrats A student of current politics can not fail to be profoundly impressed by the arguments which democratic leaders and democratic newspapers in western states are addressing to western democrats and the reasons that are being represented by the same sources of information for be lieving that Parker and Davis have any chance of winning the election. Among these arguments aud rea sons are the following, which may be * fonnd repeated from day to day iu the columns of various democratic newspapers from Chicago to San Francisco, aud which will doubtless form the bulk of the democratic campaign ammunition in the coming months. Silver is a dead issue. The democracy has repudiated Bryan ism. Everybody knows that Parker is a “gold bug.” Cleveland is well pleased with Parker’s nomination. Wall street and the trusts will con tribute generously to the democratic campaign funds, while the republi cans will find it difficult to secure money. Henry G. Davis, the democratic trust candidate for vice president, is a twenty-times-millionaire. The paramount issue is the re duction of the United States army and tbe immediate independence of the Philippines. These, be it remembered, are detn ocratic arguments, addressed to democrats in the western states, and intended to influence western voters favorably to the democratic candi dates. Politios in tbe past has presented many strange situations, but never the equal of this one.— Pueblo Chief tain. Judge Babbitt and Colorado De mocracy. The announcement by Judge K. R. Babbitt that he will no longer be affiliated with the democratic party in Colorado is of great significance, not only because of his influential position at the bar, in politics aud in private life, but because of the reas ons that have impelled him to fol : low this course. Questions of na tional policy have not been consider ed by Judge Babbitt in this matter; his renunciation of the democratic party is due solely to the respective attitudes of the two leading parties in this state toward tbe labor troub lea. Ever since Governor Peabody be gan to employ stringent measures to preserve order in tbe disturbed min ing districts tbe democratic party of Colorado has given sympathy to the Western Federation of Miners and has tacitly encouraged its leaders iu their lawless course. Even before this, when the state was under dem ocratic control, Governor Orman re fused to grant protection to the owners and the non anion men of the Smuggler Union mine who had been driven out by tbe striking mem hers of the Federation. That, as Judge Babbitt points, oat, was and is the latest expression of democrat ic policy on the question. Consid ering it as snch, and considering also the attitude which that party has consistently maintained toward the policy of Governor Peabody, it is only reasonable to suppose that the restoration of democratic rule next fall would be followed by another era of toleration of assassination, dynamiting and terrorism in the mining districts. In view of these things, it is not at all surprising that high minded conservative men who place princi pie above party are refusing to sane tion the demagogic course of the democratic leaders. The defection of Judge Babbitt will undoubtedly influence many others who are now undecided between loyalty to the party organization and loyalty to the right and to the best interests of the state.—Colorado Springs Tele graph.
