? ' NOT A SHAM BATTLE.
| DEMOCRACY'S VJTAL CONTEST ST WITH THE PLUTOCRATIC FORCES OF THIS COUNTRY. J. Importance of Choosing the Right Man For President. - :'r >. r ? PARKER IS STILL AN ENIGMA. tO . " , . . : The Commoner says: A;. ? There'is no doubt that the corporate interests have an .understanding with Judge Parker, for without such an understanding they would not think of - supporting him. The decision in the merger case shows how important it is that the president should be in symV pathy with the people rather than in V sympathy with the corporations. The ' ' ; three Judges appointed by Mr. Cleveland dissented from the opinion of the tuurt, ana as juage noimes siuou with them, it would only require one mope Judge to change the decision, even if Judge .Brewer's separate opinion does not already indicate the probability of ail adverse decision in another case. If Judge Parker were nominated by the influence of the corporations and elected with the aid of their contributions, is there any doubt that his appointees would be corporation men? Can the Democratic party afford to lend itself to a movement to so make k^up the Supremo Court as to nullify |i|lthe efforts of the people at reform? Bu secure remedial legislation the BHBppple must not only have the House, JB Senate, the President., hut the Km Supreme Court also, and as the HRimbers of the Supreme Court hold IjKffio..- for life, that department of'the . Mr ."Overnmcut is the hardest to change. As President Judge Parker might apW point one, two, or even three Supreme Juslices, and his appointments might bar the way to relief for ten or fifteen years. Can the party afford to take such a chance? Judge Parker has been "before the country as a can- < did ate for a year, and in all that time ' he has never expressed himself upon a single public question or indicated his views on a single issue. Can we afford to nominate a question mark? If so, we need not be surprised if the voters indulge in exclamations. Democracy's contest with plutocracy is not a sham battle or a makebelieve fight. It is a terribly earnest struggle, and the decision in the merger case has pointed out with great V distinctness the possible result of a mistake in the selection of a candidate. Th^re are hundreds of Democrats whose sympathies are with the masses of the people and whose opinions are known?men who have had .more experience in political life than Judge Parker, and who would poll more votes on election day. Some of these men have been mentioned; oth<ers have not. Surely among those who have been proposed or might be proposed it is possible to find some one wbo will give voice to the Democratic conscience, and lead a charge .against the cohorts of organised and predatory wealth. The Republican party is controlled by the corporations: it is dominated by the trust magnates and financiers. The President has signally failed to enforce the criminal section of the anti-trust law, and his attorney general hastens to allay any fears t.liat the merger decision might have ex Cited. The President, will have the Democratic party nominate a man A nearer to the corporations than lie is. Could the Democratic party afford to set between the Republican party and the trusts, even if it were possible to do so? If Mr. Parker were a man with a record, if his convictions were known and his position on public issues clearly defined. Mr. Mill's cha.mpionship of his cause might not be sufficient to entirely destroy his availability, but with his opinions unknown and his aspirations in the hands of Mr. I-Jill. it. is mot unfair to regard Mr. Hill as the keeper of his conscience, and who is so poorly qualified i to keep anyone's conscience. The fact that Mr. Parker is an 1 enigma ought to remove him from j consideration and the situation Is | made still worse by the blight of Mr. | Hill's support. When 'to this is ad- j clod the overshadowing danger which the merger decision has pointed out. j as it not time thai the honest, earn- j est, loyal Democrats awake from | their lethargy, lay aside the ihough? i of fnmnrrimispi nnU hi-inp t.ti ni ........... .
