?S|S> has remained for Frederick L.
9' Davenport, who eras Progreailve .
Pt i* candidate tor governor of New York
f &. 1P14, to tell a convincing atory of
Hf' Impression made by Gov. Hughes
(g- MB-the stomp. This be does In the
t' .OhOook. Mr. Davenport says that alKgwough
not himself exactly a friendly
KJmdian at first, he was completely won
Kgwver. He declares that the myth, so
gtideveriy created and circulated by the
BHreJPemocTata. that Mr. Hnghes Is a cold,
f ' unapproachable citizen, was complete?"
lyl dispelled, and cites various InIK
' ttances to prove his assertion. He
? . quotes the old fellow at San Diego
?K yWio, after studying Mr. and Mrs.
y nugnes iot a time, remarked "They
!$& Bt common, ain't they, jnst like the
fir ritat of us." He tells of the Incident
lifethe Detroit baseball grounds where
liVy Mr. Hughes not only showed himself
3k!_ to be somewhat of a fan but where he
Hyp ', leaped OTer the rai]|?g t0 let the piay.
IM era shake bands with him, and where
Jot ' Mr. Davenport heard a man remark,
Sk': "By golly there's nothing cold about
him! He's a modest man. but he's
Lf>- all right" Davenport tells of Mr.
K/;, Hughes going down Into a mine at
Wf.; 'Butte, shaking hands with the miners;
> . handling a drill, ]ust to find out bow
r ' It Is done, etc., and of the Impression
Bp he made, always that of a modest man
jfc',- but of a real man with red blood In his
l'.? veins along with a reasonable proper|
tlon of the milk for humun kindness.
]i" Mr. Hughes has. according to Mr. Davjr
enport, "a winning smile and "an exi:;
huberance of human Interest In the
K presence of the people. He looks like
flfe.a President, that is. like a born leader
Sjai: Of democracy." Thus another Demo3'
cratlc myth goes glimmering.
tlT Democrats Desperate.
W&r Formal announcement that William
H Jennings Bryan will take the stump
I- for Woodrow Wilson Is generally re
' garded in the cast as Indicating that,
HBBTiSlnce the Maine election. Mr. Wilson's
managers ? and Mr. Wilson is very
largely his own manager?have be- -p,
comb desperate. It seems to be an- f0
p ' other case of Mr. Wilson's having ]0
changed his mind. Ever since Mr. se
I Bryan retired from the cabinet it has sa
been the policy of Mr. Wilson and Ills wl
supporters to lay at Mr. Bryan's door, of
In so far as they could, responsibility ge
for the numerous breaks and blunders
In Mr. Wilson's foreign policy. Mr. cii
bi jou, it wan asnurifu, was ruspuiim- j p
l ble for the policy of stripping the dip W
Ilomatlc service of competent men to PI
make place (or "deserving Democrats." v
It Is true Mr. Bryan wrote the "deserving
Democrats" lotter. although It rz
has been shown that Mr. Vlck. one o(
the chief beneficiaries of that policy,
was Mr. Wilson's own political henchman
and supporter. Mr. Bryan, it was
charged, was responsible for tipping loff
the Austrian Ambassador that the
"strict accountability" note to Germany
was "not to bp taken too serl- co
ously." It Is true, of course, that Mr. 80
Bryan denied this on the lecture plat- at
form and asserted that he acted cl,
strictly under Mr. Wilson's orders. f0
that he reported immediately to Mr. cu
Wilson what he hud sr.id to Baron te
Duma and that Mr. Wilson approved.
Mr. Bryan, it has been explained, was
Responsible for the folly whereby this
administration closed to Americans ?
"the open door in China." Most of the y'
efforts to unload responsibility on Mr.
Bryan have proved unwarranted; nev- .
ertheless, it has been the Wilson poll- .j.
cy to make Mr. Bryan the goat, and
the decision to utilize Mr. Bryan's ser- ctl
vices on the stump now is regarded j,,,
by some of Mr. Wilson's managers as ttl
fraught with peril. Mr. Bryan may aL
tell the truth. IS
Changed His Mind Again. th
. Mr. Wilson has changed his mind
again. "Mr. Wilson today began detailed
plans for his campaign for reslectlon,
particularly with reference to ar
his own part in the next two months m
of speechmaking," Is the announce- j th
I mem wnicn comes irom Mr. Wilson's | til
rammer home, at Long Branch. The i la
President has decided "to avoid per- j te
sonallties as far as possible," the an- j
i nouncement continues. Mr. Wilson
\ probably does appreciate the truth ot
the old adage. "People who live In vt
glass houses, etc." Tho dispatch fur- ,
ther discloses the fact that Mr. Wil- )n
ton contemplates malting a number of pl
speeches in various parts of the coun- so
try. It will be remembered that only a a
short time ago, Chairman McCormlck, at
after a conference with President' Wil- gi
Bon, announced that Mr. Wilson did a
not think it "compatible with the dig- ja
hlty ot the Presidency" for a President m
to go about making campaign Bpeech- tb
es. In addition to his speeches, Mr. to
Wilson has decided to write a scries ot he
letters to Democratic leaders in doubt- lh
?_ ful states, with a view to further set- of
,T . ting forth his political views and de- pr
tsf\ ' tending his administrative record. M
R Lett We Forget, te
Mr. Hughes has charged President ds
It Wilson with betraying the cause of ar- m
Br; bltratlon in the railway controversy. al
fc" . There is one phase of that affair to
which your correspondent's attention ?"
I' has been called and which seems to
Sphave been overlooked by a large sec- "J
' tlon of the press. It Ib that the rail- 811
!C roads not only offered to submft their nl

arbitration, but that they further of- 0

Mrs. W. M. Michaels, of Mannington.
la the author ot the following
poem which she read at the O. A. R.
Re-unlon last week:
"The Heroee of Gettysburg"
Go back with me to Gettysburg,
In eighteen sixty-three.
We'll hear the sonnd of tramping feet.
Well bear the bugles blow.
Well see the line of Rebel Gray
March boldly forth In battle 'ray.
Go back with me In memory.
To the days that tried men'a aools,
When the fathers of famlUea,
Were forced to leave their folds.
And break asnnder every tie
That lies closest to the heart;
Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers.
And sweethearts had to part.
A thrill of admiration runs
Along tbo Union line,
As that great army, keeping time.
Marched boldly np the hill.
Mi, joon the scene Is changed for tbem
The air grows thick with flyTng shells
and screams of shot, and cannon's
And dying moans, and din of war.
And those proud ranks of Rebel Gray
Are torn and thinned by the battle's
For thousands gave their lives that day
When the boys in blue met the
boys In gray.
From Seminary ridge we see
A charge made by the grav.
And the blue on Little Round Top
Trepara to meet the fray.
And riekett's men come dashing on
Across the battle plain.
Till the blues from Little Round Top
The shells of death do rain.
Ah. bravely fought the boys In gray;
As onward fast they sped.
Straight up the slope toward Round
Top's crest,
O'er thousands of their dead.
Until they reached the old stone wall.
Where many brave blue anil gray
With saber stroke and bayonet thrust.
Cropped down to lifeless clay.
And hotly waged that awful charge
Across the old stone wall,
The lilues and grays with giant strokes
And death surrounding all;
But finally after fierce attack
The Johnnies fled, and then
The straggling band with harty step
Ran down to Devil's Den.
Then, lottnd about these clefts of rock
The boys in blue did swarm
Until the veary Southerners
Were exhausted, spent and worn;
And General Lee. with Bteggcring .
Retreated South again.
Completely whipped at Gettysburg,
His loss one hundred thousand men.
Ah. 'twfld n hnr/1 w/mi
For the boys in blue.
But their hearts never tailed *hera
The long days through.
For their cause It was right
And God gave them might,
To carry it through.
Then three rousing cheers tor the old
boys in blue.
The deeds they have done will live
after you?
Aye. will live on forever.
In tile freedom they gave
When they lifted the yoke from the
poor bonded slave;
When they gave us a country
So grand and so free
A union forever, for you and 'it me.'
Then take oft your hats as the old
soldiers go by
With faltering step, and fast fading
For the battles they , fought, for the
victories they won.
Shall keep us forever In union one.
