Mr. Bryan has tbe hearts of tbe people. He knows them. He has lived among them He understands them. With Brvan in tbe White House the people know that "Welcome" will be printed on tbe door mat and no playing favorites in tbe lorma tion of the line will be allowed. That's the kind ot a man the people are going to elect next November In discussing Mr Bryan as a presidential candidate his op ponents are disposed to doubt his sympathy with' Democratic tariff idea He has made his position on the tariff question as clear as words can make it. He is opposed to the Ripubt can policy which robs the many tor the b-n. tit of the few. Hr is no new convert to the Dhthi cratic idea of tariff relorin. ei-11 er He has preached it t"t years The views of TiinVn, Seymour, Hiii, C eveiand ami other distinguished lea-ters of the Democratic party in the past were no stronger in ihi question thin those exon-s-ei by Mr Bryan. Any alteiupv in sidetracu Mr. B van oy tit claim that iir i-. not a u. d eiu un tar IT rtformtr i .;o. m ed to failure, li is a w.ste good tun. Mr Brvan recognizes that t h ; a riff i ue vil 1 he an imp r an 1 one in tne coming Piesidt-ntiai campaign, and he b is aid so. He el oes not, however, believe that it is the only issue thai should he considered He re trards the reu'aiion of rail roads and trusts as very impor tant questions, and they are. They will undoubtedly figure conspicuously in the campaign If anyone thinks that the Dem ocratic party is going into the tight with a single issue they will find themselves greatly mistaken when the contest opens. Political parties, like every. thing else, have to struggle to perpetuate existence. Every day and year a political party remains on top of earth it has to battle for breath. Interior forces as well as external ele ments are operating constantly against tbe life of human organ izilious, political as well us so cial and eclesiastical. The patri i ic oid l)-mcr.tic party is immor al It has al ready survived enough in time and hardsiiio to justify that ob servation. The Democratic par ty was born of the Revolution. It was and is of the spirit of Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, Thom as Paine and Thomas Jefferson. Tbe Democratic spirit first pol arized itself into a visible or ganization during Washington's second term. All of the fathers before named opposed Federal, ism and stood by Jefferson in bis great struggle against Al exander Hamilton. For a century and over tbe party of Jefferson bas floated the flag of liberty and progress in America. And that, fno, in face of times and seasons severe -enough to send nearly all the other political parties to Umbo. Tbe forces that separate and divide are natural to Democrat ic philosophy. A Democrat U READ THIS. The Democrat bas some thing like (2,000 due it. It may be that you owe us only one dollar but we hope you will come in and pay that as we need the money. We have just bought a new job press and oth er material and we want to pay (or it and all else that we owe. In order that we may do so we must collect what is due us. It is not necessary to ask those whom we owe to call as they will do that without tbe asking and we want to pay all we owe and can easily do so if tb peo ple whou we have favored will do the tight thing and settle promptly. D.m't wait for anoth er iuvi'atiou. philosophically ooe who thinks and acts , for himself He is a siogle acd complete unit. H-i is nis own man No other man owns him. Nj man cm bully him No man can sileuce him. No man can puu him around by the nose ar utnerwie boss or dominate him A Democrat is not a sheep he ha bo-h indi viduality. ;md independence. He will flock with u! hers on his own te-ms but if the pasturage doesn't suit him or the shep herd or the other sheep displease him he will caper to other re gions. . The P,-e-i.lenlial battle of 190S will soon begin Already the voters of the party, the newspapers and tbe leaders have apeed on Bryan It is Bryan and only BVctn. down deeu in tne Democratic heart. In a united spirit the Demo cratic hosts t.-e preparing to follow the spirit aud letter of the wise course of Col. Watter son who recotly said.
