The Kansas City platform Is sound In
every plank and the first act of thn next
ilt'Tioc ratio convention should be to re
affirm it In its entirety, and Its next act
should be the addition of new plonks In
harmony with It and covering such new

Then the convention should select candi
dates Who lell"ve In the platform candi
date whose democracy will not be an la.iue
in thecampiiiKn and whose fidelity to uein-
' ooratle prlncnlos will not b doubted at
the election. And then the committee should
announce that It wll' neither ask nor re
ceive campaign contributions from those
who are entrenched behind the bulwarks
which W are attacking. And then let us
defend our position, not upon the low
ground of dollars slut cents, but by showing
how republican policies Violate moral prin
ciples and Invite the punishment that
sooner or later overtakes tbo wrongdoer.

form and no surrender. lie held It the
duty of every citizen to make It his pri

wanted dishonest officials of whatever

dated that with a'pJatfurm patterned after
the Kansas City platform and a candidate
who could stand upon it, democratic suo
ress. W. D. Oldham talked of "Principles, and
Not Men." He too was a no surrender demo

One Lone Populist.
O. W. Berger, the lone populist on the
program, spoke In part as follows:
In our discussion and endeavo;' to solve
present-day problems 1 think sonieti r.es we
could make better headway it wo could
better catch the inspiration that prompted
the fathers of our country. If we do not do
this, we are unworthy, the name of an
American citizen. No man serves his
country well who does not place the public
good above everything else.

Recently' we were told thut In lflsi "a
wave of fusion swept over this nation, and
especially. Nebraska, which caused the
democratic party to tremble for tho ulti
mate result?' If true, was this good or
bud fusion Let us see.
In lbM the Uemocratlo party elected Mr.
Cleveland president by a majority over
Mr. lilalu of 23.000 votes. Ills administra
tion was thoroughly democrat lo and won
the rvapect spri admiration of his party. He
was chosen agula as democracy's leuour In
1IM. This tliii. although beaten iu the
electoral college, his popular majority over
ids opponent was tneroaxed from 113,000 to
Llghteen nlne(y-lwo saw hi in again the
standard-beaier of our party. -The Issue
In that campaign was tariff reform. His
plurality at the polls was notable. He
Iiad a mntTlty there over Mr. Harrison
of about SoU.000.
How Mr. Cleveland divided the party Into
factions and 'set one against another by
his efforts to Ignore the people and serve
special Interests, how he sought to lead our
party Into strange paths, away from the
old eh lines and Into temples where false
gods were Worshiped. Is a matter of detail
with which you are tamlllar and with Which

t Cleveland; in 10 we elected a democratic
governor, he receiving 71.UUV votes; lit lxt'2
we polled 44,000 votes for Morton; in IhM
but 37,000 for Judge Irvine. If we con
tinued under the same leadership, how
long would it take to work out our ex
tinction? I-et the mathematicians answer.
in InW the fusion now under considera
tion struck this state. But there were two
waves, not one. The railroads, emboldened
by years of success, determined to fasten
more firmly their .hold upon the neck of
tho people, and in pursuance ol this pur
pose nominated a ticket which was labeled
republican, but was. in fact, thoroughly
I rullroad. The old leaders, flndina- they
, could not bring our party to support the
railroad ticket, left us and fused with the
! republicans. This was one fusion wave,
and was bad, but the party itself proved
! true to its. traditions and lined up on the
side of the people by fusing with the pop
ulists this was the other wave, and was
good. As a result the republican party,
steeped to Its eyes In corruption, was
l driven from power for the first time in the
. history of the state.
J In 1W fusion elected the first democrat
to the supreme bench, it insisted upon
having control. ' and consequently placed
Governor Holcomb beside Judge Sullivan
I in 1M9. Look out through the state and
1 answer ma tiavj. nnl mr.ra Hnmnrrnll flllnft
offices In town, city and county since the
wave or fusion struck us than ever before?
Who, then, says that this kind of fusion
has Injured our party, ha not been good?
That hlih a.ievaa Ihn tmnn'A a I urn vm ttrves
I democracy. But look at Nebraska's domoc-
racy from a broader standpoint.
i .Prior to HOC where did it stand In the
: ranks of the whole party, near the head?
Not at all. but very near the bottom, If
I not quite there. Its leaders were respect
' nbl gentlemen, but were, with few excep-
Hons, more Interested la the welfare of
' lh rnllrrwiria than nf thn Teon1e .In the
councils of the psrty In the nation whst
' were they? Mere followers, content to
walk in the footmarks of some person
I who completely overshadowed them
Behold the party In 1S9 after It ad
thrown oil tne corporation element., n nnu
risen frm Insignificance to great power,
and had taken on the stature of a man,
noble and commanding.
The fusion which brought this about wns
good. It may be that It is af an end be
cause Impracticable, but no man who con
tributed to its creation and assisted In its
maintenance can feel aught but a sense
of pride that he was permitted to do so.
When in after times some worthy person
comes to write the history of the demo
cratic partv of the nation, one of its
hrlehtost n'as-es will be that devoted to
Lthe part taken by the democracy of Ne

Chicago Physicians Start Movement

, CHICAGO! Jan. It A municipal latjora-'
tory for. the manufacture jof antl-'toxlne
under the supervision of public chemists
may be ths outcome of the campaign which
has been instituted by the Chicago Medical
society against the high prloe exacted by
the manufacturers' combine or so-called
"death trust." s
At a conference 6f the officers of the or
ganisation, Including President ' Robert
Preble and Secretary Franlt X. Walls, ths
feasibility of the scheme was discussed In
detail. Tho result Is a decision to refer
the matter for final action to a meeting on
Wednesday evening with the recommends
tlon that the plan be adopted as the perma
nent solution of the problem. -'If the ap
proval bf the 'society Is obtained some al
derman will be asked to Introduce an ordi

The arbitrary 100 per cent advance in
price of one of the essentials of modern
treatment of diphtheria Is held by' the
physicians to show thir. provlsioa for the
constant supply of the article devolves upon
the municipality as a measuee for the
preservation of the public health. Tho high
price now placed on ths serum by the
"death trust," it la declared, means that
thousands of children may perish In the
first diphtheria epidemic which appears in
the city.
It was. estimated by the medical society
officials that a municipal laboratory could
be established with an appropriation of
$20,000 and $6,000 for the operating expenses
the first year.
Secretary Walls of the Chicago Medical
society today said: The sentiment of
physicians throughout the country- Is now
arrayed against the men who have ad
vanced the price of anti-toxin. The effect
wll! - be a natural discrimination against
these firms In othrr articles which they sell
to the profession."

Matter and Criticises Sen
ator epooner.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 18. The rostofTice
Inquiry resolution and the I 'una ma canal
question divided the attention of the sennte
todsy. The first half of the session Vns
given up to the Inquiry, Messrs. Hale and
Gorman being the speakers. Mr. Hale made
a plea for the reference of all postal In
vestigation resolutions to the committee on
postofflces, and Mr. Gorman repeated his
assurances that he would be satisfied with
that disposal of the question. He denied
any Intention to appear as a prosecutor of
the republican party, bf which Mr. Halo
accused him. Mr. Hale expressed the opin
ion that the departmental Inquiry had been
more thorough than would be a congres
sional Investigation.
"So far as I am able to observe, v there
never has been ahy disposition -to prevent
6r stifle further Investigation." said Mr.
Hale. "I say the investigation has been
thorough end severe nn' example such its
has not been shown In the history of this
government" ,
He said a number of democratic senators
had been disturbed Mr. Bacon of Georgia
"by the apparition of Perry Heath In the
scandals." "And Mr. Gorman naturally
looks upon himself In the role ot prosecutor
of the republican party for tho delinquen
cies in the investigation."
Mr. Gorman said he was surprised that
such a conclusion had been reached in re
gard to his position In asking Tor ari in
vestigation, that It had been far from his
purpose to become a prosecutor. What ho
had uttered, he said, was to bring: out the
fact that the Investigation was" incom
plete sand ought - to go further, and that
It cou'.d do fib harm to have the' work
dons by persons not connected with tho
administration. ' . '
"If there are further frauds In the de
partment we ought to have light on them,"
he said. i
"What I have complained of Is that the
senator has stated and restated agali and
again that the Investigation has been sti
fled,'' said Mr. Hale. " '
Mr. Gorman answered that he had made
ths statement that for two half months
the statement that 'for two and a. half
months the senator from Pennsylvania and
the senator from Tennessee, .and himself,
had been trying to secure the passage of a
resolution asking for further investigation,
"And.f said he, "the senator from Massa
chusetts (Mr. Lodge) -Informed' us bluntly
and frankly that the republican party was
In the majority and . would not permit us
to obtain Information except by permis
sion of that party. I was shocked by that
expression.' It was new to me, and natur
ally we have resented It. Such a condition
ought not to be tolerated in the senate."
Mr. Hale Interposed that that was a per
sonal controversy between the two sen
ators and added that all were now agreed
that "these resolutions should all jgo to the
postofflce committee to determine to what
extent congress should follow up, search
out, And, expose and, punish crimes In the
Postofflce department." Mr. Hale said that
a the preat campaign between the parties.
If one is ordered, would dwindle into a con
test between the two parties to see whion
couhJ gam tbeTadvantageiaf the-ttthw : He
said that- already (the democratsswere, fry
ing to make .the republican party responsi
ble for all the shortcomings In- the Post
offlce department. "As" a republican." raid
Mr. Hale, "I am willing to risk that eon-
Mr. Gorman said that he could agree with
Mr. Hale In most things, but th&t con
cerning congressional Investigations he bo
Heved that much ' good' com Id 'lie' accom
plished If only by detecting the flaws pt
laws rhlch permit such frauds' as those
disclosed In the Postofflce department. At
the conclusion of Mr." .Gorman's remnrk
Orsresolution went over until tomorrow.
The Carmack resolution calling on' the
secretary of the treasury for information
concerning a report of an Investigation al
leged to have been made Into the conduct
of A. R, Cruxen, former collector of cus
toms for Porto Rco. was adopted after
being amended so as to call on- the presi
dent for the information, If not Incompati
ble with public Interests.
Mr. Gormen's Panama resolution being
placed before the senate, Mr. Teller gave
his Interpretation of the provisions of In
ternational law cltil by Mr. Lodge, and
he!d that his (Teller's)" contention was
sustained. Mr. Teller said he oould not
agree with Mr. Bpooners statement that
there had been recognition but not Inter-?
vontlon. It Is not necessary to go with an
army to Intervene, he said. Anything
which hinders the parent state from taking
steps which It Is . entitled to take is In
tervention, and the United States has pre
vented the Colombian government from
suppressing the rebellion. - -
Mr. Teller contended, that Colombia hnd
acted under Its constitutional right In
refusing to ratify the canal treaty, and
took Issue with Assistant Secretary Loomls
In the declaration that this rejection was
an unfriendly act.
. Mr. Teller said that If we were to have
any canal. It should be -a tidewater canaL
While ho did not favor a canal, 'he did not
Intend to obstruct the enterprise because
he thought the people of the country
wanted It. If, however, we were, to enter
on the project, he said, we should do so
with clean hands and a proper txuiss ot
the rights of others. We should not se
cure a right-of-way by the robber plea of
the demands of civilisation a demand

was discussed by the hqpse, Mr. Bdrt
lett of Georgia introducing a letter front
M. W. Louis, who felt aggrieved at certain
ststements In (he Brlstow reports Mr.
Cowherd of Missouri pointed out that Mr.
Louis wss Irregularly appointed just In
time to let a contract that cost the govern
ment $10,000 more than was necessary. He
called up. a privileged resolution declaring
that John A. Keliher mi elected as a
member of the house from the Ninth con
griaslonel district af Massachusetts and
n.s entitled to a sest and that Juseph A.
Coney was not elected a member from that
district. Ths resolution was adoptrd with
out division snd without a dissenting vote.
Mr, Barllett, dem.' (Oa.). railed attention
to a Utter be had received (rest U. w.
IxHils, which" was sent to the clerk's desk
and read. Mr. Jtartlett, previous to Its
replug, salU that he ' had advised Mr.
brlstow of the nature of the letter and
that Mr. Brlsiow had said to Mm that his
father and son' hnd been regularly ap
pointed. The letter Wns written by Mr.
Louis and protests against statements In
the Brlstow 1 postofflce report and among
other things says:
Mr. Brlstow himself Injected Into the
clnsslflrd service without examination more
then thirty persons, some of them postofflce
inspectors employed In this very Investiga
tion and among them his own father, who
wns appointed as a t'Vio laborer on March 6,

district of Kentucky, and who now draws

the Denver. Colo., postofflce and his own
son, who during his school vacation drew
a salary at tho rate of $7'.'0 a year In the
postofflce at Washington. D. C.
It Is not amiss to state thnt even now
Mr. Brlstow's father is not performing
Inspectors' duties and that the son per
formed no work at all to warrant the pay
ment of a salary.
Following the reading of the letter Mr.
Cowherd, dem (Mo.), snld:
It seems to me ttiat the point In the ap
pointment of Louis was not the violation of
the! civil service law. although that was un
questionably violated. Louis was appointed

the point- In the Case is that Louis was
appointed on.Jhls particular, and precise

Reyes Papers In Senate.
President Roosevelt transmitted to the
senate today additional correspondence
touching the relations of the United States
with Colombia and Panama covering the
period from December 36, 1903, to January
6 last.
A statement of - grievances on the part
of Colombia was presented to the State
department by General Reyes on December
23. General Reyes says the course of the
United States had worked deep injury to
Colombia and he cited the treaty of 1846
as showing that the Independence and sov
ereignty of Colombia was to be maintained
Intact between the two governments.
General Reyes said with reference to the
Hay-Herran treaty that the same course
was followed In Bogota as Was pursued In
Washington. If the treaty,, he said, hod
been rejected in Washington the disap
proval would have Involved no grievance
for Colombia and that the Colombian con
gress in its disapproval of the treaty simply
exerted a vested right. This action, he
maintained did not disqualify the Colom
bian government -for the conclusion of an
other treaty.
As to the recognition of the Republic of
Panama General Reyes says that It Is
matter of publio knowledge that the mother
country commands sufficient force to sub
due a revolution. The attitude of the
United States, he said, constitutes, accord
ing to the most ancient and modern author
ity on international law, "not only a great
offense but also a formal attack upon her
"I have received Information to the ef
fect that a bank in I New York opened a
considerable credit in their favor, with a
knowledge of the general; use. for which It
Was Intended, even though unaware that
it was to be applied. In part, to ths brib
ery -of a large part of the garrison at
Panama."' . . .
Before the news was divulged that a
revolution was about to break out qn the
Isthmus, General Reyes says that Ameri
can cruisers which reached their -destination
precisely on the eve of ths move
ment wre plowing the waters of ths At
lantic and Pacific oceans. A United States
military, officer.' he say a, stopped the. rail
way from' -carrying-to Panama asjt wns
under obligation to de a battalion of troops
from Bogota, which had Just arrived at
Colon at the very time when Its arrival In
that city would have Impeded or sup
pressed any revolutionary attempt. ..
General Reyes said that In leading the
Colombian army to restore order on the
Isthmus he. Reyes had the honor to ad
dress a note on the subject to Rear Ad
miral Coghlan, to which he received a re
ply without delay as follows: "His (Cogh
lan's) . present orders are to prevent the
landing of soldiers with hostile Intent
within the boundary of the state of Pan
ama." He adds': i
In this crisis of the life of my country,
ns unlooked for as It Is terrible, Colombia
rests Its most comforting hopes tn the
sentiments of Justice which animate the
government of your excellency, and con
fidently trusts that thnt government, which
has so many times surnrlsed the world by
Its wisdom, will on this occasion astonish
It by Its example.
Macbrn Trial Resnraed.
In the trial of A. W. Machen, the Groff
brothers and Dr. and Mm, Lorens, charged
with conspiracy to defraud the govern
ment, the prosecution introduced a number
of witnesses to prove the relations of
Machen with the Lorens's and Jhe Groff
brothers. One of those, Ina Llebhardt,
Machen'h former stenographer and chief
clerk, testified to visits of Dr. and Mrs.
Lorens to Machen at his office, but de
clared on cross examination that on the
several conversations she was present and
heard nbthlng said about letterbox fasten
ers. James E. Bell, superintendent of delivery
of the Washington -postofflce, testified that
the Groff fastener had been adopted with'
out any report on It having been submitted
by him, although It would have been his
duty to make such report as the fastener
wss tried first In this city. John F. Clark,
a letter carrier, described tho failure ot
'the fastener to work at a test made In
1894 In this city, at which Machen and
Samuel A. Groff were present, which caused
Machen to remsrk to Groff at that time
that unless the fastener would work with
out sticking he would not recommend Its
adoption. During the day Justice Pritch
ard showed a disposition In arguments on
admissibility of evidence not to tolerate
unnecessary delay In the prqgress of the
case. ,

of the controversy between Its general offi
cers and expelled members from St. Louts.
A. J. Lawrence made a supplemental state
ment for those whose charters at St. Louis

C, Plnta answered questions, while Edward
C. Mottan assisted as counsel. . Lawrence
sold there were about TOO members of the
shoe workers' union in St. Louis that are
affiliated now . with the American Labor
Union and he Insisted that this was due
to the opposition to the action of general

workers' union.

the contract with H. M. Eaton for the
Hamilton Brown factory at Bt. Louis

the convention, the ' former favoring high

thorlty. F. A. Sleberman. another general

dsmnlng the course bf the St. Louis union

the contract so at to justify the St. Louts
unions In brcaklngMb He was equally
severs with Plnta and Lawrence for re
fusing to arbitrate. , V
Ha charged Pinta, Lawrenc and Mottati
with unblushingly uttering falsehoods be
fore the convention regarding the St. Louis
controversy .and slandering the . general

unparliamentary language and the lie was
frequently passed on the floor of the convention.-
