Dy WILLIS J. ABDOT.
Tho story hnB been usslduously circu
lated that ns tl 0 result of the recent
primaries In Pennsylvania the delega
tion to Denver from that Btnto would
bo hostilo to W. J. Bryan. Colonel J.
M. Guffey, tho national committeeman
from tho state, who has long been
recognized ns the leading power there,
made that statement explicitly. The
newspapers quoto Governor Johnson
ns reiterating It, though the form in
which tho alleged Interview with Gov
ernor Johnson comes leads mo to
gravely doubt Its authenticity.
Tho fact of the Pennsylvania situa
tion, however, ns stated to me by Dem
ocratic leaders In that Htntc, are that
at least two-thirds of tho delegates
chosen to tho state convention, which
will meet on the 20th of May, aro
cither directly or Indirectly committed
to Mr. Bryan. A swinging mnjorlty of
those delegates are under absolute In
structloiw for him. Fifty-one out of
sixty-four of tho district dolegates who
will mnke up tho delegation to tho na
tional convention nro Bryan men. Hon.
Wnrrcn Worth Bailey of Johnstown,
Pa., secretary of the Bryau Democrat
ic league, writes me that the Btnto del
egates by a largo majority aro Bryan
men nnd that the convention will send
to Denver n delegation Instructed for
the nomination of the Nebrnskan and
tho Indorsement of his policies. ,
The Republican Lineup.
Tho Republicans have progressed
much further In the selection of dele
gates to their national convention than
have the Democrats, n fact only to bo
expected, becauso the Republican con
vention will be held threo weeks ahead
of tho Democratic one.
Obviously it Is still Taft against the
field. But tho field Is strong enough
to mnke tho situation very Interesting
for tho secretary of war. The bitter
ness of political opposition to him
could not bo overstated In hardly one
Instanco Is he the second choice of
any of tho other possible candidates
mentioned In tho foregoing tablo. All
might combine on some other man, but
novcr upon the Roosevelt legatoe.
Moreover, this table, which on Its
surface is wholly fnvprable , to Mr.
Taft and which is accurate up to the
moment of writing, is nevertheless to a
certain extent misleading. So far ev
ery southern delegation Instructed -for
Taft and so counted above Is accom
panied by n contesting delegation and
may, if the nnti-Taft men control the
organization of tho convention, be re
fused seats or have Its voto cut down
one-half. Wo have heard much In the
Inst week of tho wicked things per
formed by those eminent statesmen W.
J, Conuers nnd Charles F. Murphy in
a Democratic stute convention in New
York, and It. must bo ndmlttcd that
they ruled with n heavy hand. But in
tho oxlgencies of politics Republican
party managers have not always con
fined themselves to the good, the true
nnd tho bcnutlful. The gentleman in
the White DTouso Is not tho only cus
todian of tho big stick. When It Is
necessary for the insiders in n Repub
lican natlonnl convention to make their
rule supreme by recognizing contesting
allegations and creating for them
selves a majority which they may not
have won they have never failed to do
it. Secretary Taft has one supreme
politician, aud one great power back of
hlm-nnmely, Mr. Roosevelt. He hns
agnlnst him practically all tho old line
manipulators of caucuses, and conven
tions. Tho outcome of the struggle is
yet to be determined, though at the
present moment every chanco seems
to favor Mr. Taft's uomlnaUon.
Battleships and Politics.
It Is nearly time for the collection of
campaign funds, an art in which the
Republican party is a past jnastor.
Observers of politics point out thnt tho
president's device for a tnrirf commls
8lon to sit through the summer of n
campaign year will help a good deal
In carrying out tho famous programme
of frying the fni out of the protected
manufacturers. A liko suspicion ns to
his purpose in making so bitter a fight
for tho construction of four battleships
nt a cost exceeding $30,000,000 was
current In the house of representatives
and led to the repudiation of his policy
and the authorization of only two bat
tleships. The greatest beneficiary of
enormous expenditures for ships of
this class Is the steel trust. In forging
armor plate It stands alone In this
country. Its monopoly Is complete.
Of the raw material, or, for that mat
ter, tho finished material going Into
jiavnl construction, four-fifths has to bo
bought from the colossal monopoly en
gineered by Mr. J. P. Morgan and Mr.
Andrew Carnegie, To toss n mntter of
twenty or twenty-five million dollars'
worth of government contracts Into tho
cavernous pockets of these gentlemen
would certainly Justify some recogni
tion from them which might help a
struggling party in a pending cam
paign. This is the talk about the halls
of congress, and It furnished one of tho
reasons 'why in the hardest tight that
he has yet led in the house of repre
sentatives the president was 60 em
phatically turned down.
In tko.debnto on the battleship prop-.
odltloa Representative Ralney of Illi
nois by a happy feat of memory enter
tained the houso nnd very much em
barrassed Bourke Cockran. Mr. Cock
rnh had spoken with characteristic ve
hemence for the four battleships pro
posed nnd announced ns unpatriotic
nnd perilous the suggestion that the
number should be reduced. Mr. Ralney,
however, wns able to read from tho
Congressional Record of only two years
ngo nu equally vehement and eloquent
speech by tho gentleman from New
York in which he bitterly opposed tho
building of even one battleship and de
clared thnt the country did not need to
Join In the International mania for na
val extension. John Sharp Williams
closed the debate with the explanation,
"I am tired of this eternal nonsense of
seeking peace by prcpnrlng for war."
' It Is well to continually reiterate the
fact proved bj government statistics
nnd already ofllclally Inserted In the
Congressional Record that 70 per cent
of the expenditures of the national
government, money taken from the
pockets of our citizens, Is used either
in paying the expenses of past wars or
in preparing for future and Improbable
The Election and the Senate.
Thero Is no likelihood thnt even with
a Democratic landslide In tho nation
next November the overwhelming ma
jority of the Republicans In the senate
can be overturned. But some great
chnnges can Ihj mnde In thnt body.
Thirty-ono United Stntes senators will
go out of olllco unless re-elected. The
legislatures which will either re-elect
or set them aside will be chosen during
the coming presidential campaign. In
these stntes there Is a chance for Dem
ocratic legislatures and therefore for
North Dakota, Idaho, Illinois, South
Dakota, Ohio, Connecticut, Washing
ton, Iowa, Kansas, California, New
York nnd Utah.
There are differing degrees of prob
ability as to success In these states,
but there Is a good fighting chance In
every one. That the senile nnd useless
Piatt should be retired In Now York
would seem to be au end that would
load the voters of that state to forget
partisan or factional differences nnd
elect n legislature which should accom
plish It. The fight In Ohio inny lend
to the retirement of Fornker, whose
ability no one doubts, but whose bitter
partisanship would mnko Democrats
rejoice at his removal. Both of 1he
Dnkotns would profit greatly by a now
representation In the national upper
The Inevitable Deficit.
A good many years ngo, when some
politicians nnd economists were point
ing out tho dangers to the country of
a great surplus In tho trensury as au
lncentivo to public extravagance, Gen
eral Frederick Grant, then colonel, re
marked that It wns easier to handle
a surplus thnn a deficit. Everybody
laughed at him nt the time, bub3 the
party in which be was then politically
active is going to give tho counjrjj. a
chanco to test the virtue of his' theory.
The experts estimate the end of this
fiscal year, which comes June 1, will
show a treasury deficit of about $00,
000,000. If one-half of the appropria
tions which President Roosevelt has
urged upou congress had been mudo,
tho deficit would bo much nenrer ?100,
000,000. This is the culmination of twelvo
years of absolutely unhampered Re
publican domination of the United
States government. It comes after sev
en yenrs of Roosoveltlsm, during tho
greater part of which he has had con
gress absolutely under his command.
During tho entire twelve years thero
has been no reduction in tho burden of
taxation save In taking off tho extraor
dlunry war taxes levied during the
progress of the Spanish war. The tar
iff lias not boon touched since the days
of Dlngley, and we are told that It will
not bo touched during the present con
gress. The public expenditures have
grown to such nn extent ns to make
that famous "billion dollar congress"
over which Thomas B. Reed presided
admirable for Its moderation. If the
Sixtieth congress Is not a two billion
dollar congress, the pace so far set will
have to be greatly lessened.
And more. In the face of these In
creasing burdens of taxntlon, In the
presence of this trensury deficit, tho
country encounters a Roosevelt panic
nnd Republican hard times thnt make
the dark days of 1S93 look bright and
cheerful. From every city In the Unit
ed States the reports come dally of In
creasing scarcity of employment and
extending destitution. Chicago alone
reports more than 200,000 people out of
employment. When n condition such
as this existed twelvo years ngo It was
charged up to the Democratic party,
though thnt party had been In power
only two or three vears. and ivrn thn
.Its power wns not complete. Now aft
er twelve years or Republicanism wo

glibly that It is due to natural causes.
The bankers and the lending flnnu
clors In the United Stntes have been
preaching thnt tho situation In the fall
would be worse than It Is today unless
the Aldrlch currency bill were pnssed.
The president has praised that meas
ure as the Inst and best word for tho
relief of the monetary situation. But
tho Republican house of representa
tives has cheerfully turned It down,
and there is not the slightest likeli
hood today that any currency legisla
tion of any sort whatsoever will go.

SENATE FOR 2 SHIPS
PRESIDENT'S PLEA FOR RAPID IN
CREASE IN NAVY REJECTED.
Membero Practically Pledge Them
selves for Two New Battleships
Every Year Senator Beverldge
Hints it War With Japan.
Washington, April 28. Two battle
ships a year is what President Roose
velt says ho has accomplished through
bis fight for his naval program. Had
be been victorious in having four such,
ships authorized at this session, tho
United States could have dictated
terms of disarmament to tho nations
of tho world. This statement, mado
following tho passago by the senate
of tho naval bill calling for two now
battleships, is understood to reveal
tho president's sourco of strength In
tho naval fight which has been waged
bo strenuously. Furthermore, two
ships this year, with the promise of
two ships each year to follow, which
tho prosldent has accepted as a bona
lido stipulation on tho part of tho sen
ate, means simply a program whicii
will placo tho United States In tho
front rank of naval progression, bui
which falls to placo It In tho position
of dictating a cessation of naval ag
gression. That the president, on tho whole, is
pleased with the result of his efforts
with congress on this subject was
mado manifest; that he firmly believes
in tho ability of tho United States to
dictate tho naval policy of tho world
In tho future, through demonstration
of ability to overwhelmingly outstrip
rival construction, is equally manifest.
President Roosevelt wanted four
battleships this year. Ho got two.
With tho two ho obtained tho promise
that two more would be forthcoming
each year. This means, considering'
the dimensions of the battleships
which modern construction dictates,
that tho United States shall keep fully
abreast of tho naval armament of any
Tho friends of the president are
flushed' with what they regard as a
signal victory for his international
policy and the details of this victory
are freely given, and declared to re
flect tho exubernnco of tho prosldent.
Senate for Two Ships Only.
By an overwhelming vote President
Roosevelt's four battleship program
failed In the senate, Just as It did in
the houBe. The amendment for four
battleships was Introduced by Senator
Files, nnd tho fight for its adoption
was led by Senator Boverldge. Twenty-three
votes wero cast for tho In
creased program, tho number largely
being made up of recently elected sen
ators. Fifty senators voted' to support
the house, and the recommendation of
the senate naval committee In favor of
building only two battleships. x
The debate on the battleship amendment-lasted
three days, to the .exclu
sion of all othor matters. It was be
gun by Senator Beverldge with an elo
quent appeal for the support of the
president, and a suggestion that the
larger navy might be needed for war.
Members of tholcpmmlttee upbraided
the Indiana sohator for this veiled
hint of war with another country and
sought to mako him admit that he
meant Japan. , At times the discussion
came near becoming acrimonious, es
pecially sharp exchanges occurring be
tween Senators Aldrlch and' Beverldge.
Tho formeris reference to Beverldge
incited Senator Smith (Mich.) to pro
test against the senate chamber being
"mnde a slaughter house for the young
senator from Indiana."
It was developed by Senator Allison
during the debate that there is a well
defined understanding among the sen
ate leaders for the authorization of
two battleships each year until the
American navy Is regarded as suffi
cient to meet any demands that may
be made upon it.
As finally passed, the bill carries ap
propriations aggregating $123,115,659,
and' provides for the construction of
two battleships and two colliers and
the purchase of three additional col
liers, the construction of submarines
and other necessary craft, and In
creases the pay of officers and enlist
ed men, as well as increasing both the
ray and strength of the marine corps.
Proceedings In the House.
A resolution was passed by the house
authorizing the news print Investiga
tion, but not until the expediency of
that investigation had been discussed.
Williams characterized it as a method
of delay. Tho sundry civil bill was
debated for threo hours. In this time
Tawnoy showed that tho house had'
cut appropriations $110,000,000; Ro
denberg (111.) held the Democratic rec
ord of the past few years up to ridi
cule; Marshall (N. D.) criticised the
Aldrlch currency bill; Splght (Miss.)
urged congress to refund to southern
states the $00,000,000 collected In cot
ton taxes during the civil war, and
Shackelford (Mo.) took Republicans
generally to task and specifically crit
icised the shortage in the St. Louis
The conditions In both the senate
and the house wero such that the spe
cial messago of tho president, further
outlining his views as to legislation,
received but scant attention.

but he had disappeared. Fifteen rods
up the hill was a wretched polo cabin,
with the roof sinking in. It had no

tho windows. Thero was no floor, and
the cooking was done nt a rude fire
place. A girl who could not have been
over eighteen and who wns poorly

swarming up tho hill, but did not

The bazaar given by tho ladies of the
First Presbyterian church in the Phclan
opera house Tuesday and Wednesday,
closed last evening, a success socially
and financially, the net proceeds
amounting to 175. There were several
booths artistically arranged and con
tained many beautiful and useful
articles which sold readily at good
prices. The most interesting
feature of the entertainment yes
terday was the baby show. There were
dozens of pretty youngsters entered
and the judges really bad a difficult
time to decide who were the handsomest
but after much consideration the prizes,
engraved silver spoons, were awarded,
in the one-year-old class, to the daugh
ter of Mr. and' Mrs. A. V. Gavin, and
in the two-year-old, to tho son of Mr.
and Mrs. Geo. J. Deitlcin.
The judges were J,. W. Schatzell, O.
A. Brown and G. G. Parks, all of Den
ver. The auction of bachelors took placo
last night. It was expected that about
two dozen of these creatures would be
placed under the hammer but at the
last minute several of thewi lost their
nerve and played the "piker" act. It
is admitted, however, that it required
considerable persuasion on the part of
the ladies having the affair iu charge,
to get any of them on the stage and it
was only after assurances that "the
audience could not tell whose shadows
would be reflected" that the men con
sented to allow themselves to be auc
tioned off, at prices ranging from fifteen
to sixty cents. When auctioneer Jack
Miller announced the first article to be
sold, not a bachelor could be prevailed
upon to put himself in the limelight
until an editor they are always easy
aud at all times willing to make a sacri
fice for christian purposes was induced
to lead the lambs to slaughter. After
his sterling qualities were announced
by the auctioneer, some lady ventured
the offer of two cents and bidding con
tinued lively until the hoodo number of
"23" was reached. That was the limit
and Auctioneer Miller cried "skiddoo."
When the purchaser found out fqr sure
who she had bought, she thought she
paid too much and wanted her money
back, but thanks to the auctioneer, it
didn't go. There was one girl deter
mined to have Charlie Hill at all haz
ards and she got him. Bidding was
lively ior Attorney Boyd, Hugh Beal,
Ora Pliillips and the Peirsons. The
lady who would not have let F. A.
Hively go to any other party, at any
price, was out of the city, but she had
arranged with a friend to look after her
interests, consequently Floyd bad the
pleasure of eating ice cream with a pop
ular married lady. Dr. Copsey went
at a bargain for cash, Bernard Phelan
displayed a sign that inspired high bid
ding, but Richard Burke brought the
top price, sixty cents. Ho had it pre
arranged with the auctioneer to tell
about his fine tenor voice and if
"Dude" had only been allowed to sing,
the ladies would be bidding on him yet,
in fact they are anyhow. George
Burke, Dr. Knight, Ward McA. Rear
don, Harry Thiele and Frank Brenuan
were among those whom the ladies
had expected to appear, and were
saving their money to bid on, but these
prominent gentlemen were conspicuous
for their absence. After the last bache
lor was sold, a half dozen of the "Mer
ry Jane" girls were auctioned off in a
lump. This did not seem to meet the
approval of the young gentlemen, and
they would doubtless have contributed
more revenue had they been sold singly,
however, they brought a pretty fair
price, considering these stringent times.
Two prominent stockmen Charlie
Tully aud Herman Peters- bought the
whole bunch for 82.50, or 41 cents
per, aud declared that they received
more for their money than at any sale
they ever attended. It is conceded
that both Tully and Peters have artis
tic tastes and know good things when
they see 'em. The ladies having the
