Two years ago inthe primary elec

England's Great North Road Is Two
Thousands Years Old.
Before we reached Hatfield, a few
miles out of LondoK, we had already
been impressed wRIi the magnificence
of this Great North Road, which is
said to have beeri built by Mr. Caesar,
whose headquarters, were in Rome at
the time. It is tlki&irect route from
London to Edinburgh, and has been
traveled for so many centuries that
the earliest histories of England con
tain accounts of the movements of
tfroops upon it. It is a great thorough
fare for vehicles of all sorts, motorists
and cyclists, and in these modern
days there are well-known footpaths
alone either side for pedestrains. We
passed scores of motors, and I was told
while in England that the popularity
of motoring had noticeably diminished
the number of first-class travelers by
rail. We found the road for its entire
length-of 400 miles in perfect condi
tion. In many portions the macadam
is said to be nine feet thick. Long
sections of the road are oiled.andon no
part of it wasi there any appreciable
dust. There are few sharp cur ves.and
the grades are so slight that it had be
come a great thoroughfare for speeders
with the result that there are many
police traps for which one has to
watch. We found that we could stop
in almost any little village, and get
information as to just where the traps
were located as, for instance, they
told us at Biglewade, which is a bet
ter looking place than its name, to
look put for traps just the other side

Picks Platform Which He Thinks
Should Be Crafted.
Louisville, Ky., May 2. Declar
ing that Secretary of War William
II. Taft is to be the Republican
can nominee for President, and W.
J. Bryan the Democratic standard
bearer, Henry Watterson in his
paper to-day outlines what he be
lieves should be some of the planks
in the Democratic platform.
"State rights under the consti
tution, equality of law for the or
ganized few no less than the organ
ized many, the lid off the franchise
corporation and all combines,
whether political or capitalistic;
publicity, the sure safeguard
against conspiracy; no sumptuary
laws; the complete separation of
church and State; and a tariff for
revenue only," are the chief issues
which th'e editor says Democrats
should urge.
He says, in effect, if he can sup
port Bryan no Democrat should
be able to find an excuse for fail
ing to do so, and tells of his former
opposition to the Nebraskan. He
says the newspaper forces which
are trying to defeat Bryan are com
mitted to Taft anyway.
Watterson's message in full to
the National Democracy is as fol
"Well-advised observers know
already that the lines of the ap
proaching campaign are laid and
the leaders as good as named. The
nominating conventions will meet
only to record the ascertained will
of the constituencies. Mr. Taft is
as sure of the Republican nomi
nation as Mr. Bryan of the Dem
ocratic nomination. Those who
quibble in either camp are either
politicians playing for their own
advantage, or else enemies in dis
guise. "If we cannot elect Bryan, we(
can elect nobody. The time for
alternatives went long ago. There
is but one course open for sensible
men and good Democrats to pur
sue, and that is to quit nair-split
ting, to close ranks and rally round
the donkejT and the flag, on which
still appears the Democratic le
gend, 'Equality for all men; exclu
sive privileges for none.'
"If we can get to Bryan, surely
the most disaffected ought to be
able to reach him without much
trouble in case they be Democrats
and not Republicans. We fought
a good .fight against him, and we
fought it to a finish. We fought
it sincerely, openly, frankly, un
sparingly. Not until money, mys:
terious and unexpected, took the
field after we had plead in vain
for some intelligent, disinterested,
popular response did the news

to open their eyes to sit up and
take notice. It is too late.

committed to Taft. Not one of
them is a Democrat by principle,
by predilection, or by habit.
"We hope that our words do not
lack either for plainness or specifi
cation. We mean them. On the
eve of a national battle which is to
determine for an era the destina
tion of oi party politics which
is to decide, itjtnay be, for all time,
between federalism and statehood,
between home rule and centraliza
tion it behooves the Democrats
of the United States in case there
are any, and we believe there are
yet a plbnty to gird their loins,
to study the horn-books of their
history and their faith; if they can,
to read the very starff

Democratic gospel, sufficient, if
put into practical effect, to scotch,
if not to kill, the plutocracy;
enough, if boldty proclaimed by a
Democracy stripped to the girth
for the death struggle, to sweep
opportunism of the Taft-Roose-velt
variety ringed, streaked, and

"In short, and in fine, Demo

and out of the anti-Bryan habit.

Report of Express Robbery Near
Pittsburg Not Made Public.
Pittsburg, Pa., May 3. More
gold coin and more gold leaf, part
of the plunder stoler from the
Adams Express car on Thursday
night, was picked up to-day by
boys in the vicinit' of Walker's
Mills, on the Panhandle railroad,
where the robbery occurred. This
afternoon hundreds of boys, and
some men as well, searched all
over the neighborhood looking for
gold and money which might have
been "cached" by the robbers.
Scores of Pinkertons are scat
tered all over the neighborhood.
That they are completely at sea
was admitted this afternoon at the
office of the Pinkerton agency.
They have a number of clews
which they are working on, they
say. The officials of the Adams
Express Company to-day practi
cally admitted that the sum of
money stolen was large, but they
refuse to give the amount. It is
reported, however, that instead of
being $80,000, as has been rumored,
the sum may reach 500,000. Noah
Roshon, the express messenger, in
whose car the robbery happened,
left to-day for Columbus. He will
resume his duties with the com
pany. :: :::::;:
