After waiting three hours and a quarter Safe and Sane Democracy came and called out: "Well, fellow, what do you want?" "Excuse me. sir," said the Brvan Democrat, timidly, "I know I'm an abandoned and disheveled wretch and filthy and contemptible, . and only fit to be spit upon. But I couldn't help t. I've been with lunatics for eight years 6,500,000 insane people but I've escaped from them, and I've come back. I think I'm cured. At least I'm no longer dangerous. I want to show my repentance.

Bryan' AttltuJn Edltcr Independent: Can yon ac count fur Hon. W. J. Bryan' attitude !iu the democratic nctlonal convention? His political equilibrium must have been disturbed by witnessing two re markable shows or exhibitions while he was there, viz., the democratic con vention and the Igorotes' war dance. Mr. Bryan is excusible, if he got the "goldbug dance" of one and the "im perialistic" dance of the other so in terwoven as to confuse him in his plans of reorganizing his party. He has certainly lost his head, and don't know "where he's at," if he thinks he can reorganize a party that has reorganized itself on "irrevocably established" gold standard and on "Ir revocably established imperial policy. The events of the past four years convinced Wall street and scramblers for office that a reorganization was again necessary, else there would be no chanco for spoils. Tho reorganiza tion has been effected upon a basts reafly in harmony with the policy of the republican party. Let the demo crat who den Ira this proportion show any material difference. Ho may make assertions and a play of words, but show nothing definite that is material to the country. Tho npw. reorganized party's only real object l.s to reorganize tho run ning machinery In a pcrnonal May not In any way material to tho Inter ests of the public. A party that has to bo reorganised every four years ! ft fuur-ycara-party, and only nppltc for a new Uaso under tho old corpo rate name, with a new leader. If Mr. Bryan want to orptnlj-a a ne party under Ms former prsmal views, couplod with lila Jute effusion on "government and municipal owner ship," he can do something. He can, organize a strong and invincible party that can and will antognize tho re publican, party and its policies. Such a party will be a genuine democratic party a progressive party which would annihilate the present retro gressive party. Mr. Bryan evidently believes that the "party will be , In gloriously defeated, hence his early democratic declaration of "government ownership." Mr. Bryan is a reformer, but he has positive evidence that his services are not desired by the Wall Street crowd, and he ought 40 know that all efforts to reform the demo cratic party will be love's labor last. . F. Don't Like Mickey's Speeches The country republican press don't seem to like Mickey's style of oratory. The Cambridge Times has the follow ing account of the speech he delivered there: "It may bo an honor to entertain the governor of Nebraska at a gather ing such as our reunion last week but the kind of a speech the governor made was not enjoyed to any preat extent and won him no honors. Brer pie do not come to reunions on hot days to hear esaays read, and the gov ernor mado a mistake In trying to en tertain the people with a big bunch, of manuscript cumpriidng an exhaus tive review of great historical events." n.ATFOHMS-Of all parties.
