4 Misrepresenting Mr Bryan
In Washington last Saturday
Mr Bryan complained that there
seemed to be a deliberate deferm jn
ation on the part of some of the i
newspapers unfriendly to him to
misrepresent his position in respect
to the Philippines In order that
f there might be no ground for such
misrepresentation he stated his po
sition on that subject in writing
Notwithstanding thia effort to set
himself right some of the corres
pondents of leading Republican
f papers stated in their dispatches
the substance of what he wrote in a
way Chat was calculated to create a
wrong impression
For instance the correspondent
of the TimesHerald of Chicago
who has the reputation of being
one of the ablest newspaper men in
Vashington stated in a dispatch
to his paper that Mr Bryan was
for expansion but was against
imperialism and that he explain
ed what he meant by saying that
4he favored giving the Filipinos in
dependence and protecting them
against outside interference He
alsp made the statement that Mr
Bryan did not explain how Fili
ti pino independence could be recon
piled with an mericall protec
As a matter of fact Mr Bryan
did make such an explanation
He said that the kind of protector
1 ate the American government
V should exercise over the Philip
pig us was the same as that which
tit exercises over the republics of
Central and South America sim
ply to prevent European nations
from interfering in the affairs of
those republics or endeavoring to
dominate them
For this country to exercise such
authority might not be a good
i thing for the Filipinos and it might
I be more costly than profitable for
this country Still Mr Bryan fa
vors such a protectorate for the isl
ands and it is but fair that his po
sition be correctly stated in both
Republican and Democratic papers
The Financial 4 Pull
The iensacola News strikes it

politician with a pull gets there I
The criminal with plenty of in I
fluential friends has good chances
of getting oileasy If his friends
or his family have plenty of cash
he is almost sure of exemption
from the consequences of his crime
Former Captain Oherlin Car

his brother oilicers of high crimes
against the people of the United
States is able or his friends are for
him to pay large sums to the most
skillful and renowned lawyers to
fight his cal even after his convic
a tion and sentence have been ap
k1 proved by the president The bold
announcement is made by his coun

Dissatisfaction With Mr Bryan
A Washington despatch in the
Baltimore Sun says information
has been received in that city that
Mr Bryan has received letters from
at least a dozen Democratic leaders
in the south asking him to retire
as a candidate for the Democratic
nomination for president In many
papers statements are appearing
that among Democrats in Vashing
ton there is considerable dissatis
faction with Mr Bryan Demo
cratic senators are represented as
being satisfied that he cannot come
as near being elected as he did in
the last presidential contest and
that his views on several impor
tant questions are not acceptable
to very large numbers of Demo
cratic voters There is talk also
that when he reaches New York a
determined effort is to be made to
induce him to abandon the 16 to 11
All of this sort of political gossip
is interesting but it does not prove
anything No weight is to be at
tached to it as long as no one of
the Democratic leaders is willing to
come out into the open and state
that he is opposed to Mr Bryan
and will use his influence to pre
vent him from being nominated
It would be very remarkable if Mr
Bryan did not have some opposi
tion He does not expect that he
will be nominated by acclamation
All the indications are however
that he will have such an over
whelming majority in the nomi
nating convention that the opposi
tion will hardly he worth consi er
in gI
It is probable that those who are
doing the most of the talking
against him were against him in
lSUG That explains probably why
they will not permit their names
to be given in the interviews in
which they express antiBryan
Mr Bryan is not going to change
his views on the money question
the expansion question or allY
other question lie could not very
well fiord to change them If he
were to do so he would cease to he
popular with those who are now
his staunchest friends

Only One Republican Signed the Report of
the Majority
The reports of the committee on privi
leges and elections in the case of Senator
Quay who claims a seat in the senate on
the strength of the appointment from the
governor Pennsylvania were presented
Tuesday The majority report opposing
seating him was signed by Senators Caff
ery Pettus Turley Harris and Burrows
the last named the only Republican sign
ing it The minority report bears the
signatures of Senators Hoar Chandler
Pritchard and McCpmas all Republicans
and advocates giving the seat to Mr
The majority report says the senate has
never recognized the right of a state ex
executive to make a temporar appoint
ment where the vacancy occurred during
a legislative session and that the para
mount intent to have the legislature
choose the senators is to prevail The
constitution framers never intended to
give the executive of a state the power to
fill an entire term by original appoint
ment unless possibly in a case where
the legislature had chosen and the per
son elected had refused to accept or died
before qualification
Every contingency is provided for by
the constitution except the sole one that
the legislature fails to perform its sworn
duty and against that the constitution
framers did not intend to provide
The fundamental principle thus es
tablished it that if the legislature either
before or after the happening of a vacan
cy has had an opportunity to fill it then
there is no power in the state executive
to appoint The result is fatal to the
claims of Mr Quay and the senate for
its own honor and dignity should stand
by its previous solemn and deliberate de
The minority report says the governors
failure to call the legislature together to
elect a senator does not act to deprive the
governor of the power of appointment
uWe think says the report that the
intent of the constitution was to provide
as far as possible that every state should
have two senators We think that a de
cision which must inevitably deprive
states in the Union for long periods of time
of their rightful representation under the
constitution will not be permitted long
to stand and that no settlement of the
question in derogation of the rights of
the states and as we conceive in viola
tion of the intent of the framers of the
constitution should be acquiesced in
Republican Convention
The Republican state convention met
in the opera house at St Augustine last
Friday at noon after an all night caucus
held to settle the deleuitioii to the Phila
delphia convention The fight was be
tween United States Marshal Horr mill
II S Chubb who finally gave way for
position as alternate
Collector MstcFarlanc of Tampn made
a strong light against K U Gunny his
grievance being that he was omitted
from the Tampa delegation
Judtlolul i Long was in full control

man by acclamation
Messrs < i L mg J K Lee II S
Chubb and Mark White were nominated
delegates to the national convention
MeKinleys administration received
hearty indorsement but the delegates
were rot instructed for any candidate
The leaders in the convention all agreed
that the vice presidential candidate
would come from New York Lieutenant
Jovernor Woodruff being the favorite
though Secretary Ihs had many sup

The Passenger Fare Case
In the circuit court at Jacksonville
Monday Judge Call listened to the argu
ments of attorneys in the case of the state
of Florida against the Savannah Florida
and Western and the Florida Central and
Peninsular railroads for refusing to com
ply with the order of the railroad com
mission of July 18 1898 directing them
to reduce the passenger fare from 4 to 3
cents Attorney General Lamar was di
rected by the commissioners on June 29
1809 to bring suit against the above
mentioned companies and he recom
mended that Judge U S Liddon and J
M Barrs be chosen to assist him in liti
gation A continuance of the case was
taken until today
There is more catarrh in this section of the
country than all other diseases put together
and until the last few years was supposed to
ho incurable For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease and prescribed
local remedies and by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment pronounced it in
curable Science has proven catarrh to he a
constitutional disease and therefore requires
constitutional treatment Hulls Cutarrrh
