The Passlng of Popullsm. New Yurk Trlbune. News comes from Denver that two warrlng factlons of the I'npullst party, weary of bickerings and dissenslons, havo declded to mergo in a slngle natlonhl organization. Lonellness rather than zeal for brotherhood seems to have forcvd this unlon. Dlsaster and deser tlon have thinned the rnnks In both the Middle of the Road " and. " Fuslon " partles. Dlsaffectlun nnd apathy have left no zest In leadershlp or strlfo for loaucrshlp In elther organization. A blg gcr stago Is coveti d by the manlpulators in both factlons, and a politlcal merser has no doubt npptalcd to both sldes as tho surost menns of forclng political recognltlon of some sort iu next year's presldential canvas. llowever that may be, ccrtalu frag ments of the two Pojiullst organlzatlcins have cutnu togotlnr at Denver and votod to pool thelr hopes and lnterests. They have also lssueil a lirtef summary of up to date Popullstic ductrlne, to whlch Pop ullsts of all shades .if oplnlon Are Invitod to subscribe. So far, so good. Dender bellefs than Popullsm have been revlved by prunlng nnd rcstatement. Posslbly deader paities than the I'npullst have Ix-en ot on thelr feet agaln by shrewdly conclllntory leadershlp. But we havo looked in vain among tho slgners of tho Denver progrnmme for that master splrlt who ls to infuse new life into the dead body of Popullsm. We mlss among the subscrlliers to the new declaratlon of princlples naint-s whlch havo ever tlashed in the forefront of Popullstic statesman ship. Willinm V. Allen the world knows as nn lntlnmmable and nieteorlc party leador and holder of the record for unsuspendeil oratory in the Unlted Stntes senato. But who are hls assoclates in thls lntest effort to revitallze a shrlvolled and shrunken party? Who are " J. S. Felter, J. Mullott. Dr. U. 11. Reemelln. A. Poyn ter and Frank W. Owens?" Why, when the loll was called at Denver, dld we mlss from lt the hcroes of. tiie strenuous days of Popullsm the men who stormed the West and South, who rent the Dem ocratlc party asunder and drovo It hend long Into tho embraees of Bryanlsm? Wliat has become ot Marlon Butler. of "Tom" Watson, of Wllllam A. Peffor? Where are Ignatlus Donnolly, Charles A. Towne, James B. Woaver. ' Cyclone " Davls and " Socklcss Jerry " Slmpson? hy. as in tho old days at Sloux Falls or St. Louls or Omaha, was Wllllam J. Bryan not lurklng somowhero In the background, ready to advlse and dlrect, to dlctate nominatlons and edlt plat forms? Evldently wlth Popullsm the golden cord is loosed and the pltcher Is broken nt the fountnln. Though reunited and harmonlzed, the Populist party of 19o can hope to Ihi only the emptlest shell of tho Populist organization of lKii or It iooks to us as if at Denver the llon. Wllllam V. Allen was treadlng a hanquct hall deserted as if the consoll dation which he and hls assoclates havo been cffectinB Is merely tho unlon of two phantom armles the merger In one bat tle llno of two exhausted skeleton ranks. The Descent of Anarchy. From the Chlcago Inter-Ocean. Wllllam Thacker. a white man, was taken from jall at Flemingsburg, Ky., oa Thursday mornlng, beaten senseless, nnd hatiged untll dead. Tho only excuso glven by tho mob for thls murder was its fear that Thacker would ultlmately escape punlshment. Two years ago Thacker killed John Gordon In a quar rel. He was arrested, trled twlce. and sentenced to life Imprlsonment. IIo np pealed to tho supreme court, whlch granted hlm tho thlrd trlal. For thls he was waltlng when murdercd. He was lynchcd for slandlng upon hls constltn tional rlght to a trlal which tho highest court of Kentucky would Regard as fair and lmpartlal.
