PHASES OF POLITICAL

THE HERETOFORE STRONG SUPPORTER
OF PARKER IS PLAINLY

GIVES UP FIGHT.
SAYS IT IS NOT SUPPORTING
THE JUDGE. AND LEAVES
IT TO THE PEOPLE TO
DECIDE.
In its issue of Monday, the great
metropolitan journal says:

because with free silver
diniinated there is no disquieting irate
between the parties; while the
hi i can s.say it is duo t o uuj busiie:.s
community's belief that there is
o be: no change of administration.
Only The ballots will tell which explanation
is the true one. The people,
md t.he people alone, are the decisive
'actor. Obvious as is this fact, it is
iverlooked by some of our con temporaries,
ag we took occasion to renin
d them last. .July in deprecating
he too flattering importance they atached
to what they termed the Herild's
"support" of Judge Parker. As
.ve explained in a leading editorial at
liar, time:
"The Herald neither 'supports'
fudge Parker nor 'opposes' Mr. Roo.se*elt!
As an independent newspaper
t endeavors to put before the people
rankly, fully and impartially the
acts regarding the Presidential cam>aign
as it develops day by day. In
he carrying out of such a program
here is room neither for support nor
or opposition. The duty of snpportng
or opposing the Presidential nornilees
may be, in fact should be, left
o the people.
"The people will have to decide."
The varying phases of the campaign
are been presented in our columns;
lie issue has been clearly defined and
is for the people to declare whether

Judge Parker has alsa been at a

BRYAN'S VIEW OF NOMINATION.,.
"I have nothing to take back, I have
nothing to withdraw of the things
that I have said against the methods
pursued to advance his candidacy. It
was a plain and deliberate attempt to
deceive the party. The New York
platform was vague and purposely
so, because the advocates of Judge
Parker were trying to secure votes
from among the people who would
have opposed his views had they
known them. * * * The nomination
was secured, therefore, by crooked
and indefensible methods."?William
Jennings Bryan, in "The Commoner,"
July 13, 1904.
