Meetings Will be Held is Every City and Hamlet on July Fourth. New York. May 22. in response to numerous inquiries Wm. II. Hearst, who was recently chosen president of the national association of demo cratic clubs, has made the following statement: "The national association of dem ocratic clubs will transfer its head quarters from Washington to New York, but branch offices will be main tained in Washington and Chicago, so that the machinery of the organi zation will be in close and constant touch with the democratic national committee and with the congressional campaign committee. Every democratic club, society or association in the I'nited State is expected to unite in the political bat tle this year. And the democratic organization in every city, town or village will le asked to assemble on the night of Fourth of. July to cele brate the declaration of independence and to receive news from the demo cratic national convention. This ought to be made a memorable dis play of old-fashioned American pat riotism. In some cities and towns there will be banquets, in others there will be mass meetings. The clubs of each locality will de termine for themselves the form of theirctlebmtiou. Thenational asso ciation desires to recall to thecountry the fact that this year the people of the United State must defend the declaration of independence or aban don it. No man who has a drop of demo cratic blood in his veins can fail to assist in this great national protest against the establishment of subject colonies under the American flag. The great question to be decided at the polls thi year is whether this country is to continue to be a repub lic controlled by the people or an empire controlled by the trusts. All minor questions disappear in the presence of this giant issu. The national association of demo cratic clubs enters on the work of assisting the national committee and the regular party organization in the various states with a determined heart and full of confidence. The next president must tie a democrat, and reports from all parts of the country indicate that, the principal work of tke democratic clubs next spring will be the inauguration of Mr. Bryan at Washington.'
