Motive of the Belmont Clique.
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. There may be people in the
country who look upon the endeav
ors of the administration to enforce
orrxczjiL 2TEizrspji.PEa or peoutees ccvwtt
this law as merely a play to the po
litical galleries, but among them will
not be fonnd tbe men whose special
interests he has put in jeopardy
When Belmont and his clique, who
have been voting the republican
ticket ever since the first nomination
of Bryan, pile their money into the
democratic campaign and tight des
perately to control the affairs of the
democratic party, it may be accept
ed as a foregone conclusion that they
have no donbt of Roosevelt’s sincer
ity or that the pledges of the repub
licau party against unlawful combin
ations will be faithfully carried out.

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
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
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
Politios in tbe past has presented
many strange situations, but never
the equal of this one.— Pueblo Chief
Judge Babbitt and Colorado De
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
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
