Ross Cavendish Tells of a Few Calamities
That Follow In Its Wake.
Democratic success means more
time for gymnastics and the cultivation
of Christian science.
Democratic success tends to warn
us of the fact that "the mills will
t never grind again with the water that
nas passeu; mm uie ime passing
out, and that we, like the Indian and
' the buffalo, are placidly and peacefully
passing away.
Democratic success means that the
swallows shall nest again in the
smoke stacks of the iron and steel
; factories of the United States.
Democratic success means that
grass will form in the railroad beds,
and rust form on the rails.
Democracy is not particularly
i. Catholic in character. However, it
observes Lent?all the year around.
Democratic success means monuments
for the few and morgues for
"the masses.

Democratic party promise success in

The Republican district conventions
held in this county last Saturday for
the election of delegates to the State,
Senatorial and Judicial conventions,
were well attended. The delegation to
the State convention is about equally
divided between Messrs. Dawson and
Teter. Of course, it is unanimous for
the county's candidate for Secretary
of State?the Hon. Charles W. Swisher.

the Pennsylvania Republicans is the

believed by many that Governor PensprJi

Most of the Democratic State conventions
that have adopted platforms
have placed themselves in a curious
situation as regards the Panama
canal. Xot daring to come out openly
against an undertaking of which
they had approved in former years,
they have accepted the result of the
v. ork of the Roosevelt administration
and denounced the methods by which
that result was obtained. Now that
the canal has been paid for and the
labor of completing it is about to begin,
the Democrats have suddenly discovered
that the manner of acquiring
it was ail wrong, and that the Nation
of which they form a part is
preparing to enjoy the fruits of usurpation
and robbery. How they will
exincaxe Lliemaencs n<;ui lair cnviuica
they have constructed is not made
known by any of the platforms, and
the question is passed up to the St.
I.ouis convention.
The trouble arises from the inveterate
habit of the Democrats of findins
fault with what has been accomplished.
They do not suggest that
the negotiations with the republic of
Panama he revoked and that there
shall be a new beginning with Colombia
substituted for Panama, but that
is the only moral alternative if their
ground holds good. Should the National
convention follow the lead of
the State conventions when it makes
its platform it will be compelled to indorse
an absurdity on the sole plea
that the Republican way of handling
the subject must necessarily be condemned.
Gorman attempted to com
mit the party in the Senate at the
recent session, but was defeated
through the defection of a number of
the Democratic Senators. Those who
revolted from his leadership were
wise enough to percleve the folly of
his attitude and to vote with the Republicans
to push ahead with an en
terprise the importance of which is
recognizer! by the world.
The Republican convention will, of
course, applaud the canal project and
. the method guaranteeing that it shall
be finished, and that declaration will
be confirmed by the people, regardless
of what hair-spun distinctions the
Democrats may draw. It is sufficient
for the country that the administration
cut the knot of complications
and pulled the canal out of the tangle
created by Colombian greed and repudiation
of promises. Under the Democratic
scheme the dickering between
Washington and Bogota would still be
going on.?Pittsburg Times.

: Marshal], one of the men tvho went j
on the Walker filibustering expedi- :
tion to N'icaragun and lived to tell j
of it, died at the home of his sister'. j
Mrs. George Wails worth, in this city |
yesterday afternoon. Mr. .Marshall i
was 74 years old and was born in Os- j
we go.
He met Walker who suggested a !
filibustering expedition to Nicaragua
and Marshall saw a chance for excitement.
The first filibustering
party landed at Reale, Nicaragua, on
June 11, 1S55 and captured Granada.
Walker was appointed Secretary of
War and Commander in Chief of the
.armed force of the Republic.
Walker's rule became arbitrary
and provoked an insurrection which
resulted in his expulsion from Granada.
Walker later organized an expedition
and again started for Nicaragua.
It was on this trip that
most of the party were shot. Marshall
and a man named Boh Gardiner
spept several days in the dome of a
church, in which there was a hell,
which the sharpshooters used for a
When Marshall got out of the
tower he was taken into the home
of a Spanish family, where he remained
for three years. Marshall did
not do any filibustering after that.
Walker did and was shot at Honduras.
editorial jottings below were
clipped from the St. Louis Globe-Democrat:
The party without issues is naturally
attracted by a candidate without
i voice.
The first month of the World's Fair
has passed into history. Nobody has
had to walk bach, go hungry or sleep
in the streets.
If young Hearst will wait until
Christmas, maybe Santa Clans will
be good enough to bring him some
kind of a nomination.
Several more boodle cases have been
reversed by the Missouri Supreme
Court. Nineteen convictions, but nobody
in the penitentiary yet.
Old Probabilities could accomplish
his greatest feat by making a correct
forecast of what will., happen at the
Democratic national convention.
"Judge Parker is the logical candidate,"
says Mr. Cleveland. The question
is how many of the 6.000,000 -who
voted for Bryan are willing to accept
the logic.
Col. Bryan is still knocking on the
New York platform and insisting that
the Democratic nominee should be a
good off-hand talker rather than an
equestrian statue.
Aften ten years of calm communion
with himself, ex-President Cleveland
has placed the stamp of approval upon
his course in the settlement of the
Chicago strike.
Judge Parker's political convictions
are of the most elastic description. He
would just as soon run on Senator
Gorman's platform as on one constructed
by Hill or Bryan.
Running for President may be Mr.
Hearst's idea of having a good time,
at his own expense, and without causing
serious inconvenience to any of
the other candidates.
Hardlv enough Democrats turned
out in the Democratic primary at Sedalia
to start things in the different
wards. A self-indicted party is apt to
develop a tired feeling.
Mr. Bryan intends to call for a
count among the C.000,000 who voted
for him to find out how many of them
are willing to admit that the platforms
of ISOG.and 1000 were wrong.
The reorganizes hope that Bryan
will bolt. Their experience in >'oting
the Republican ticket convinces them
that loiting the Democratic ticket is
sufe. pleasant and profitable.
Mr. Cleveland indorses Parker as a i
satisfactory Democrat, but the compii- i
meat has not been reciprocated. The
sphinx of Esopus r.o*r<:1 not speak of
that, even if he log-ao to talk.
Senator Gorman dominated the Democratic
convention, dictated the delegates
and made the opening and closing
prayers. The boss lias lost none
of his pristine vigor.
