"The New York goldbug papers tire practically impotent. Their efforts to injure silver in New York made votes for silver in the doubt ful states. "If New York goldbug democrats can abandon party lines to injure silver, then certainly western sil ver republicans can leave the par ty to help siher. "It so happens that we need votes in some western states, and their loss in New York will do us no harm. "Let the heathen rage." sidering the platform, it may be as well that a revolutionist like Bryan stands upon it. We want them with red fi.igs, so that thtre will be provocation for shoot ing them down." Apparently Mr. Anderson thirsts for blood. The New York newspapers should equip their fighter with a gatling gnu and send him west. A WKSTKRX VIEW. The Omaha World Herald, of which William J. Bryan has been editor for some time past, looks on the bolt of democratic papers in the east with little concern. It is willing to allow the eastern demo crats to commit political suicide if they choose. A recent issue of the World Herald says editorially: "With the exception of the New York Journal, the New York Mer cury and the New York News, the democratic press of New York Inilts the democratic ticket. "It is followed by various large and small papers in other towns of New York and New England. "Possibly the eastern newspapers may imagine that their action is of large political significance ami importance. They are in error. A president of the United States can be elected this year without the aid or consent of the eastern states, which have in the past dic tated nominations and swayed elections. "Every time a goldbug demo crat goes to McKinley in New York he paves the way for two silver re publicans to come to Bryan in the west. Every time a gold demo cratic paper in New York repudi ates the democatic platform it renders more certain the reputlia- The sound money bolt in the east has not assumed such fori lia ble proportions as the gold men ex pected. After having taken the sober second thought there will not be many democrats who will swal low Hanna, McKinley and the principles of republicanism as enunciated in the republican plat form. Democrats who have been fighting these principles for years will not hasten to vote for McKin ley next November and, besides, there is plenty of time before election for these gold standard democrats to look into the eilver The populists and silver organi zations will meet in St. Louis to day for the purpose of placing in nomination a candidate for presi dent. Of course it is impossible to foretell what the action of any de liberative body will be, but it is ..... x . i . . i . quae -a.e to aume mat tne nom- uetlton a little. Honest investí- ineesof the democratic party at ! gftUon will ,mke ,onVerts npidly. .iihu(;i ni uc mum cu muí iiitii the democratic platform will also be endorsed. It is believed that a great majority of the delegates elected to the St. Louis conventions think that the only chance for the success of the silver cause is for the supporters of silver to unite their forces and light under the same banner. It is plain that if the supporters of the free and un- ! limited coinage of silver divide ineir votes, ine election oi ..icmii ley will be assured, but with ail the silver foivs fighting together the republican candidate will be beaten with hundreds of thousand of votes to spare. Tiik New York papers have a great deal to say about the revolu tionists, socialists and anarchists of the west, but they would better pay a little attention to some ot the Wall street anarchists. E. Ellery Anderson should not be over looked by them. Concerning the democratic platform, the dem ocratic candidate for president and his supporters, he said: "Con- Tiie Western Liberal has taken the first stop to get down oft' the fence. Last Friday it printed at the head of its editorial columns this ticket: For President The Clean Shaved Max. For Vice President The Max With a Mustache. Bryan is a clean, shaved man and Sewatl is a man with a mus tache. McKinley is a shaved man and Hobart rejoices in the possition of a mustache. Next Friday we expect that the Lilicral will come out squarely in support of Bryun, the clean, shaved man. Ok the delegates elected here last Wednesday to go to the St. Louis convention, four have Wen identi fied with the republican party and four with the democratic party. All are earnest advocates of the silver cause and they will repre sent New Mexico creditably at St. Louis.
