Meetings Will be Held is Every City

New York. May 22. in response to
numerous inquiries Wm. II. Hearst,
who was recently chosen president of
the national association of demo

"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

touch with the democratic national

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
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.'
