the plans of Bryan. He is throwing
all his personal influence with that
large element of the Democratic party
which remains loyal to him into
the effort to defeat Parker or any
man favored by the Democratic re;

tion next week, and any predictions
as to the result can be no more than
guesses. His alliance with the Carter
Harrison forces in Illinois with
the Hearst. contestants for seats
elsewhere forebodes mischief for the
Parker faction, ami the convention
will he the scene of one of the hottest
battles ever fought out to a finish
in American politics. It is to be
remembered that the purpose to
throw down Parker is equally to the

that fact may operate in forming the

must pass upon the contests, is conjecture.
Tire Hearst following is far
from being a negligible quantity and
if it is united with Tammany under
the leadership of Bryan the fight will
begin with the temporary organization
of the convention. The outcome
of the struggle for control of the credentials
committee will afford the
first reliable indication as to wiio is

power of Bryan the Tammany attack
on Parker and tlie bitterness of
the hostility of the Democratic factions,
and the reflecting citi/.en cannot
avoid wondering if it is possible
for the sections of the party to get
together on any common candidate
or principles. One side or the other
must bolt or totally surrender.?

The fatal craft steamed from its plei. j
On the bosom of the ocean;
The people cheered. waved land j
As the Slocum rolled in motion.
They little thought on hoard that J
Such awful death could hover,
For mothers, fathers and children, j
For young betrothed and lover.
But oh! Alas! within its hold.
By pot of . fat o'or turning,
A thousand souls went up to Cod,
From drowning and from burning, j
t The flames rushed wild about her j
j From every hatchway streaming:5^
i Mothers with babes, rn all children
Wreathed in flames and screaming, j
j Charred human forms foil from her |
Into the briny ocean
Like flaming firebrands thrown o'er- j
But still she kept in motion.
j That, monster, death, looked on and
And heeded nor their wailing;
But cried, "Ho! Ho!" and smiled I
As their forms fell from the railing.
That toiling father at his work,
Was of his loved ones thinking;'
He little thought of the awful death.
His darling ones were drinking.
O, death! why wilt thou lay thy hand
So heavily on one place?
But glean thy flowers from fields
Not homes like this erase?
Says death: "Why shouldst thou
Thou mortal lump of clay?
t It's God's own way of doing things.
Thou shouldst have naught to say.
And don't you know that every one
Belonged to God above?
Who takes them at his own good will !
And does it all in love?"
