TUESDAY, JULY 5, 1904.
;/ As the date of assembly. of the Dem
ocratic national convention grows
nearer, all the signs point to the nom
. ination of Judge Parker on an early
ballot. The wisdom of the policy that
he has pursued is now more than ever
apparent. The racket raised about his
refusal to declare himself on/. ques
tions of political . moment - has not
prejudiced a voter. It was started by
the Republican .press and echoed;. by
the opponents of Parker in his own'
-parly,:.but; it is-understood-• as purely
personal and factitious, f The old adage
that silence is golden has doubly proved
itself in Judge Parker's case. -7 '"7
He has maintained the dignity of
Judicial office. He has saved himself
from the instant misrepresentation that
waited upon the first syllable that he
let fall from his lips. Most of all, he
has pleased the country by an exhibi
tion of moral strength. The man 7 who
could calmly adhere to his declared
policy in the•face of such persistent
clamor, such entreaties for a word,
made by friends and enemies alike, Is
a man who knows his mind and can be
true to his.own conclusions. In many
different ways Judge Parker is a thou
sand times stronger man before the
people today than he was when his
candidacy was first announced.
The logic of facts points altogether
in his direction. The position of a can
didate "against the field" is a danger
ous one only when there Is a field. By
this we' mean that there must be; in
opposition several other men with more
or less loyal followings, all of whose
forces are likely to combine when the
danger point is reached. Judge Par
ker's great advantage is the/actual'ab
sence of any other formidable candi
date. If Mr. Cleveland were actually in.
the running, he could probably be
nominated, as he would■- certainly fbe
elected.; But he has repeatedly re
fused to permit the use -of i his - name
and has expressed his hope that Judge
Parker will be named. All the* other
men mentioned are merely possibili
ties. Gray and Gorman and McClellan
and Folk are names to conjure with,
and any one of them would make fan
unexceptionable candidate..' The im
portant political fact fis that not \ one
of them; is making a campaign. Not
one ,of them goes into/the. convention
with any compact following. Not one
of them is actively exerting himself to
obtain the nomination: .7. 7
There is, therefore, no large body of
;men and no skilled leadership; opposed
to Judge Parker. He is the one cen
tral and important figure. 7He r/has
■ grown ' in 7 reputation and in popular
strength day by day from the moment
that his name .was put forward. In the
:absence of counter attractions,; the un
instructed and unattached 77 delegates •
will ; gravitate 7 steadily toward him.
Unless the unexpected should happen,
and the convention will : assemble to
morrow, Judge Parker will be the Dem
ocratic f nominee at St. Louis. We pre
dict right f here that ;/ the growing
strength with - his own / party, " which
-has followed ; every day's canvass 7;of
his qualifications,, will be more f than
matched by the growth of his strength
. with • the masses of the voters from the
day of his nomination until-/election.
He .would, be . a magnificent leader, and
all the probabilities now : point tf to > him
as the - coming man. .-'-■ \ ;-.

of five thousand little ones in: the fore

heart and less of artificiality went, into
the celebration of the Fourth. And the
day, V. with its • joyously noisy : concomi-:
tants, spent in sylvan surroundings
furnishing -'all that goes 7to make fa
child r happy, will 7 leave memories that
should.and will survive.
The undertaking of the.club was an
innovation, but it should 'be made an
institution. Its cost was trifling and
the expenditure of energy on the part
of the committees 'who made it a sue
.cess had its compensations, and those
of a most tangible character. The
municipal .celebration of the Fourth
has rather gone out' of fashion, but
the experience of yesterday, goes 'to
show that' it is -quite possible to in
dulge in a public celebration of the
right ■ sort which will at once fur
nish a holiday and honor the best tra
ditions of Independence.day.
Notice is served on the heads of the
effete monarchies of Europe that the

friend Roosevelt is for the present Oys

It would be interesting to know who
-is -responsible for the apocryphal story
that former Mayor Van Wyck, of New
York city,' has been post haste to Wan
tage, f England, to get the consent of
Mr. Croker for Tammany's support of
Cleveland for the presidency; and al
most as interesting to know -'by.'.what
means it was foisted on the great news
gathering association of the country.
Saturday, the newspapers of the coun
try had the story that Van Wyck
would discharge mission on Sun
day. y Monday," morning ' they heard that
he had • done so. • And. the whole : thing
is such palpable rot that the search
for a motive stimulates curiosity./ 1
The stupid invention. repels credulity
at every point. Mr. Cleveland does
not desire the support" of Tammany,
nor does any friend of his. >He was
nominated and elected over its oppo
sition. He does not want the nomina
tion now; but if it were the one re
maining desire fof his life, he would
go to the grave without it rather than
ask a favor of Croker. Further, the
control of Tammany is now in the
hands of Mr. Murphy, . and Murphy
would cast its vote solid for Mr. Cleve
land if he could. This -is not because
he loves the former ■ president, but 7 be
cause he hates Hill. .;•' To wrest control
of the ; . state organization from his
enemy .he would vote for almost any
candidate that being r the sole -. reason
for his opposition to Judge Parker.
Croker is absolutely .without influ
ence in Tammany : as at; present con
stituted. A few years ago, just after
his exile - began, he was - still the boss,
and 'f his orders were sent . across : by
cable. It is so no ' longer. - There is a
new Tammany and a new leader. The
organization is led by Murphy, led'
with 7 a sagacity . that it has seldom
known before, and Richard Croker has
no weight with it even in ;an advisory
capacity/ Thus, from whatever ' point
we view it, the tale • *?'• supremely, in
credibly silly.' :-"'/:7f-.
7 That it has - been ; set afloat during
these last days before the national con
vention for a purpose is obvious. That
purpose' would seem to be, first,". to-
create the impression -. that those who
desire the nomination of f Mr. 7 eve-"
land want Croker's help. That is a
lie - too; palpable for" anybody to swal
low, : even : if Crokerff had -'any. help ; to
give. Second, and more probable, the
idea -to countermine the efforts of
Mr. Murphy at St. Louis, by putting
him :in the attitude *of a puppet which
cannot be moved unless the strings are
pulled " from- Wantage. And that also,
in the - light of recent 7 events, is ; sim
ply preposterous. The yarn ought not
to deceive anyone, but / its Invention
and * circulation are none the \ less. dis
' creditable. ..*£ ZyXXXZ' 7- f.7/;'

The esteemed Minneapolis "Journal
takes to the woods. • In -f this connection
It is worth while remarking that Bob
Dunn is more at home in the woods
than in the open. 7 ' 77/7 7
One of the , most gratifying conclu
sions to be drawn from the nomination
of R. C. Dunn as Republican candidate
for governor is that the people of f the
state of Minnesota are ho longer: to be
led around by the nose by any charla
tan 7 who raises the /anti-corporation
cry. f We have .believed; for a long: time
that the common people, the men who
do not make , platforms 7or speeches^
and are seldom seen in conventions,
realized how greatly their material in
terests /had been advanced by ' the
great railroad companies operating in'
this : state. Their quiet thought. found
little expression, and their ' sane utter
ances were drowned in the noisy howl
of the demagogue. Nevertheless, their
opinions are as.we have stated them.
. The : great reliance of the staiehou'se
ring ; was fon the anti-merger , issue.:
•We; do not ; wonder that they credited it
with some wizard power, f for they, be
lieved " that /it elected Van Sant last
time; : and ■'; anything which could ac
complish r that has to be studied as a
mystery/wholly ; outside 7 the / ken -of
ordinary minds. , The f anti-merger cry
has-been continued by this fgang, and
worked for all that it was worth. They
relied upon it confidently to : give them
a majority. in the state convention.
- Now fof ; all the. candidates for gov
ernor, R. C. Dunn r was the only one
who on this issue took a rational and
creditable -stand. He f had declared
himself long ago for the faithful exe
cution of . all the laws of this state,
without favor on one side or persecu
tion on the other. He did not run when
this position was assailed fby those who
hate fairness and disbelieve/in" it fin
politics, but in the midst of , a cam
paign reiterated his views with f em
phasis. He would not stand as a mer
ger - buster any more than as a merger
lover. , He - simply and sensibly placed
the execution of the laws above favor
or prejudice, and determined to stand
or .: fall f thereby.. ■ ZyXyZy-ZZ
Observe the result. Not only did the
demagogues who sought once more to
inflame the passions of the people on
this issue fail to carry their point, but
they failed most egregiously and disas-«
trously exactly where they expected to
develop most strength. It is the resi
dent of the country, the farmer, the
citizen of the small town, the little
shipper, to whom the appeal against
railroads, just because they are rail
roads, was made. It was the remnant
of the old granger movement and of
the old People's party that was expect
ing to keep the capitol gang in power,
because they identified themselves so
conspicuously with the declaration that
this issue must remain the leading one.
It was they who turned down the can
didate of the ring hard.
In the large cities this - was fto be ex
pected. : But it - was - the *. other sections
of the . state, it 7 was the/,; country
districts, it was • exactly -f the -class of
men supposed ;to be ;: sensitive kto
an « anti-railroad issue/ who voted , for
Dunn first, last f and - all : the time, . and
would ' have nominated -' him even * had:
both Paul and Minneapolis opposed 1
him./ The issue •is a happy ff one.; 7 The
astute/ politician will not fail *to take
note of 7it. The anti-railroad?clamor
has had its day in this state.

Effort Will Be Made to Have
7 Congressman Enter Race
for Governor
- A determined and concerted effort
will be made by Minnesotans at the na
tional Democratic 7 "convention, * which
meets this week -at, St. ! Louis, to secure
the : consent ,of John Lind fto 7 become a
candidate. for governor. Mr. Lind, who
is; a delegate-at-large; from f Minnesota
to the convention, in now in Louis,
and -.with • him forty . of the promi
nent leaders of the party in this state.
While there.is a : difference of opinion
between Lind and some of I these f men
as to their choice of- a candidate for
president, the leaders of -. the North
Star Democracy are united in the de
sire that he listen to their call and be
come a candidate for. governor.
7 It is said ; that : some" weeks before
the Duluth / convention : Li nd told a
group of his closest political friends of
his : intention to retire from national
politics and to give up his seat in con
gress with : the expiration of his pres
ent term. He told his reasons which
were largely financial ones, but made
no mention of an Intention to leave
state politics. /Later at Duluth he an
nounced his purpose to retire from pub
lic life, and this of course included any
ambition that he. might have to be
governor of Minnesota again.

, The former governor's "friends, how
ever, who are gathering at St. Louis,

and they will present a strong case to

the conferences that the Minnesota del

In St. Paul: yesterday on his way to
St. Louis, said last: night that he be
lieved that Lind might .be induced to
consent to become a candidate for gov
ernor. Zins comes . from Judge Col
lins' home town, .where naturally the
feeling against the Republican machine
.that-succeeded in nominating R. C.
Dunn for governor last week is only
second in intensity to the resentment in
Hennepin- county, which, if anything?
was as much interested in Collins* suc
cess as Collins' home.
"We are going to make a statement
of the situation to Lind at St. L*uis,"
said: Zins last night, "and I think that

O'Brien Not Hopeful
,; C. D. O'Brien,- while a strong personal
friend of Congressman Lind, * does not
have much hope of inducing him to
forego the pleasures of private life and
to take up the strenuous fight which
•would be necessary to land him in the

"I believe that Lind's declaration is
final," Mr. ' O'Brien - said, "but I look on
this man, John A. Johnson, of St. Peter,
as a likely candidate. Johnson is a fine

a clean record and is a Scandinavian. I

Thus said f the urbane Celestial as he
stood with stolid face at the entrance
to Quong Gin, Lung & Co.'s store last
night- and watched -between almond
shaped but keen eyes that no "Meli
can" man with a lighted cigar gained
entrance to a place that looked as
though it had been swept by a Kansas
cyclone.;— r-i^j —
The Chinaman late last night ex
plained in pigeon English that while
the sales were of smaller amounts and
smaller explosives, the total receipts of
the day would not fall short of last
year, and: that on the whole the day
had been fairly profitable. It is. esti
mated that citizens and" small boys of
St. Paul spent not less than $150,000
for, fireworks in celebration of the na
tional holiday. • .
Wholesale dealers/ in the pyrotech
nics that go to make up a genuine
Fourth of July celebration were well
satisfied with the trade, and one of
them said, in answer to an inquiry,
that not in many years had the sales
been for such small: articles/ though
the aggregate .was fully up to the rec
ord of previous years.
No Giant Crackers
The order from the police depart
ment curtailing the weight of the
armament to be used by patriots In
celebrating the day.prevented the sale
of the giant crackers, but the small
boy kept coming, and before night
overtook the town the wholesaler had
shut up shop and the retailers' sup
plies had been nearly exhausted.
Another dealer said that Young
America's standby, the ordinary fire
cracker of his elders' blessed memory,
was sold by the hundred thousand,
and that its potency to please was as
evident as when he himself was a
boy, judging from the demand for this
species of Fourth of July goods. Fire
crackers, "canes" loaded with a mix
ture of potash and powder, "lizard"
pieces and a score or more animal fig
ures which do funny stunts when fire
is applied to their loaded anteriors
constituted the bulk of the youngsters'
investments, while the wealthier peo
ple made purchases of more preten
tious set pieces, and on their lawns
pleased the little people and many of
their elders with displays that were
truly marvels of pyrotechnic skill.
Fireworks on the Hill
From the homes on the Hill, -from
darkness until long after midnight,
there was a constant display of fire
works. The "rocket's red glare" and
"bombs bursting in air" lit up the sky,
and while the well-to-do paid the cost,
the citizens of the lower town wards
§hared in visions of the illumination.
More people were on the streets of
the . downtown. district Jast, night than
on any night of the Fourth in the his
tory of. St.. Paul. Following a. light
shower in the afternoon, the sky
cleared, the "stars came out and the
night was neither too warm nor too
cool for out-of-door enjoyment. Thou
sands thronged the streets, and the
exploding fireworks, the Roman candles
and hundreds of bursting skyrockets
combined to produce a scene suggestive
of mardi gras in a Southern city.
The bombardment continued until
long after midnight, but the city finally
capitulated to sleep, and when the
guardians of the peace were making
their 3 > o'clock; rounds St. Paul had
yielded to continued attacks and was
again a normal American city.
Alleged Ticket Thief Held for
Preliminary Hearing
Joseph E. Coyne, accused of having
stolen a number of tickets to the la
crosse game while employed at the
Pioneer. Press job : printing; rooms, was
arraigned in police court yesterday and
held' for : a preliminary hearing. Be
ing unable to furnish the $500 ball de
manded by*the. county attorney I Coyne
was committed to the county jaif.
Robert Brody, John Williams, Charles

and Mrs. John Gorman, accused of -hav
ing received f the tickets \ from . Coyne,
were also in court. They will; be rwit
nesses against - Coyne. . According to
the information that has been gathered
by : the : police > Coyne gave the '- other
persons the tickets,: and they attempted
to-use them believing that he was en
titled to their possession.
When seen at the county jail Coyne
declined to discuss the case, but was to
all appeacances • much cast down be
cause :of his arrest and incarceration.
It is stated by the management of the
Pioneer Press 7 job department • that
Coyne severed his connection with .that
institution Saturday evening after nine
years, of employment,' and was given a
letter of recommendation.
7 Although; extra : tickets of various
kinds printed at the. institution have of

the entertainments, Coyne was not sus

claimed that he has admitted that he
