Democratic National Committee Plans to Break
Precedent and Assume Initiative.
Opinions Expressed That More Can Be Gained
by Inaugurating Issues Before the Re
publican National Convention.
A sM't-iaI from r rench Lick, Indiana, i
where the democratic national commit-)
tee met, under late of November 2.r,
says: After several members of the j
Democratic National Committee had
left for their homes, anl Thomas Tag- j
gart. national chairman, was congratu- I
latino himself that he had got the best j
of the newspaper correspondents, the
secret surrounding the reasons for call-
ing the committee together at French J
Lick at this time, leaked out. j
The real reason, it now develops, was .
to secure the sanction of the National j
Committee to a plan to hold the Demo- I
era tic National Convention at least two, j
and perhaps three weeks in advance of
the Republican Convention, and to put j
the Democratic party strongly on the
offensive on all national issues, instead
f on the defensive; in a word, to have
the Democratic party take the lead in
the campaign and force the Republicans ;
to follow. I
The sixteen members of the commit- i
tee who were well in favor that this .
should de done. Enough of them car- i
ried letters from absent members to
clinc h the plan. If the Republican Con
vention is set for along about June JU, j
nthe Democrtic National Convention:
will probably be held not later than :
June 10.
Information to this effect came from j
a member of the National Committee. !
This member said: i
Is Vital to Party.
"It is vital to the Democratic party j
whether we lead or follow in the next
campaign. For years and years it has
been customary for us to wait until the
.Republicans have named their ticket
and then for us to follow and name ours.
The same was true of our platforms.
The result was that we have suffered
by being put on the defensive with the
voters of the country put in the atti
tude of being afraid to act until our op
ponents had acted.
"The question of breaking that pre
cedent has been agitating the National
Committee for a long time. The drift
of public sentiment is our way now, and
is getting stronger all the time. We
reasoned that now or never is our great
opportunity. We must take the initia
tive and drive the Republicans, instead
of striving, as in past years, to keep
the Republicans from driving us. So
we came to French Lick at Chairman
Taggart's invitation, to talk it over.
Reason for Meeting.
"We knew that the Republican Na
tional committee would meet in Wash
The Stork Visits Two Monies.
Yesterday morning at the home of
John Kreager, southwest of the city,
the family was made happy by a visit
from the stork, who made them a pre
sent of a fine little girl. There is great
rejoicing on the farm these days. At
the home of John Claus, in this city,
another visit was made, and a little boy
was left, who called John "pana" and
wakes him up in the night - and says,
"let's take a walk." While John does
not approve of that he will not argue
long, but takes the walk, you bet.

ington on December l and 7, and at
that time would set the time and place
for holding the next Republican National
Convention, so in order that they could
not set their convention earlier than
ours, we decided to meetithere on De
cember 12, after they had acted. That
is the reason for our meeting on the
12th. instead of the 1st or 2nd."
This explanation, coming from a
member of the committee, will make
many things clear to Democrats who
have been puzzling their brains for a
reason for the French Lick conference.
Most of the onlooking Democrats
here, while they have no explanations
to offer, laughed at the idea that Chair
man Taggart would call some of the
committeemen more than 2,000 miles
merely to help him decide when he
should call them together.
Bryan Favors Plan.
Washington, Nov. 24. Talking on
the subject here recently, William J.
liryan expressed preference that the
Democratic National Convention next
year be held a week in advance of the
Republican Convention. The Bryan
following, very generally is said to be
in favor of this move. They agree that
the Democratic party should propose
or initiate instead of guiding its course
with reference to what the Republicans
do at their convention. Much more is
reported by what are known as the
Roosevelt policies, and, therefore, are
responsible for the great popularity of
Roosevelt, consist of policies long advo
cated by Mr. Bryan and incorporated
in the last three Democratic platforms.
It is argued that if the Republicans
be allowed to hold their convention first
in 1908, the Democrats, when they meet
and adopt a very similar platform in
connection with trust matters, will have
difficulty in evading the charge of copy
ing the Republicrn's; whereas, they
have, in fact, the prior claim to the
policies In question.
The general opinion here is that too
much importance has been attached to
the meeting of a few Democratic Na
tional Committeemen at French Lick
Springs. It is pointed out that the
meeting is in no sense a formal gather
ing, and only fifteen of the forty-five
members of the committee being pres
ent, could not represent the whole com
mittee. Many Democratic Congressmen think
the Democratic convention should be
held first. Champ Clark, of Missouri,
is very strongly of the opinion.
Do You Earn Enough.
What is your earning power? It
certainly depends upon the condition of
your mind. With the decline of your
health will decline your earning power,
because you are not able to do as much
work as usually. You should know
that by using Triner's American Elixir
of Bitter Wine you can stop this de
clining of your health and bring it back
to the normal condition. This remedy
makes the digestive system to perform
its duty, to accept and digest all food,
to absorb and to convert it into new,
rich and fresh blood and into new
strength. Whenever you will notice
that you do not eat as much and with
such a delight as usually and that even
your favorite dishes do not agree with
you; that you do feel tired without any
cause, use Triner's American Elixir of
Bitter Wine. It is a very good remedy
for the stomach and the intestines. At
drug stores. Jos. Triner, 799 S. Ash

No home is so pleasant, regardless of
he comforts that money will buy, as
when the entire family is in perfect

i his daughter, Mrs. W. F. Wilson, re

j December 3 he whould have been ninety

j "He was born in 1812 in Bedford coun
j ty in the southwest part of Pennsylvania.
"James Madison was president and

j was two years before the battle of New
! Orleans had been fought,
j "The deceased had lived under 22dif

May Become Too Popular
The Omaha Examiner points out two
cases where it believes too much popu
larity resulted in political defeat. ; It
refers to Judge Paul Jessen and Hon.
Jesse L. Root, as follows: "That men
may become too popular seems to have
been manifested in the case of Judge
Paul Jessen of Nebraska City. His
political success has been so marked
that he presumes. That's what beat
Jesse Root of Plattsmouth for district
judge in Cass and Otoe. Root is a state
senator and also popular, but the fact
that Judge Paul Jessen was his ardent
backer - was his undoing. People re
sented Jessen's activity to control other
destinies than his own.
Depart for Florida.
Frank Johnson and wife, who have
been visiting in the city for some time
with relatives and friends, will depart
Friday for their home in St. Augustine,

John V. Outright Leaves to
Take Up newspaper Work
at Peoria. Illinois
In speaking of the departure of J.
W. Cutrignt from Lincoln, the Evening
News of Monday says: "John W. Cut
right, one of the best known and most
capable newspaper men in the west left
Saturday to assume the reins as city
editor of the Evening Journal at Peoria,
111. Peoria is Mr. Cutright's old home,
where most of his relatives live, and
when the offer of a more lucrative
position, with no repertorial work came
to him, he accepted, although very loth
to leave his friends in Lincoln. He did
his early newspaper work on thePIatts
mouth Journal, under C. W. Sherman,
and first came'to Lincoln in 18X9 to take
a job on the city side of the Call, when
Bushnell, Fairbrother and Cox were its
owners. Later he was city editor of the
Journal. In 1892 he first became con
nected with the News, resigning to go
south to Texas. He later represented
the Associated Press during Bryan's
first canvass for the presidency, travel
ing with the democratic candidate,
whose private secretary he was when
Mr. Bryan was a member of congress.
Later he served on the Omaha Bee, and
returned five years ago to take his old
place as city editor of the News.
"Mr. Cutright has a host of friends
a11 over the state. His capability as a
newspaper man, his fealty as a friend.
his general all round good qualities at
tached and retained them, and they all
are sorry to see him go. Mrs. Cutright
and their son will remain until spring
until the latter finishes his sc hool year
at Wesleyan. "
Prefers Donkey So Elephant.
Mr. Bryan in his speech at Washing
ton, Tuesday night, in reference to the
emblem of the two parties, said: "This
was impressed upon my mind when I
visited other countries, I found that
the donkey is a resident of every coun
try, and that everywhere he is serving
the people, and that, too, the common
people. He is not an aristocrat. Wheth
er you visit the mountains of the west,
the densely populated regions -of the
orient, the fertile valleys of the Nile,
or the sacred soil of the Holy Land, you
will find the donkey patient, persistent,
aud always at work. The elephant, on
the contrary, is only to be found in cer
tain latitudes, and is seldom seen ex
cept on dress parade. If greatness is
to be measured by service, instead of
by size or appearance, the position of
honor must be given to the faithful
donkey. As the democratic party is
becoming a universal party, and is
everywhere justifying its claims to the
confidence of the people by the service
it is rendering them, it is entirely ap
propriate that they should prefer the
donkey to the elephant for an emblem."
Celebrate Birthday Anniversary.
Day before yesterday being the anni
versary of the birth of Mrs. Chas..
Freese, a large number of their friends
gathered at the Freese home to appro
priately celebrate the event, and it goes
without saying they did so. Through
an oversight we neglected to make men
tion of the pleasant affair in yesterdays
paper. Among the interesting features
of the evening were a number of piano
selections by the Misses Alvina and Hat
tie Hoffman, and also some beautiful
solos by D. C. York. Many presents,
tokens of the friendship of those gath
ered on this occasion, for the lady whose
birthday they were celebrating were
given. One feature which was produc
tive of a good deal of merriment was
the riding of the "goat" by L. V.
Copenhaver, which produced one con
tinuous roar of laughter. A delicious
lunch was served by Mrs. L. V. Copen
haver and Miss Mable Freese, of which
all partook and greatly enjoyed. Those
present and to add to the occasion were
Messrs and Mesdames W. H. Freese,
W. H. Lair, Aaron Anderson, L. V.

Alvina and Hattie Hoffman, Mable and

Portion of the "Mary McCee"
Discovered at the Head
of Speck's Island
Last Sunday John McDanial discov
ered an object near the head of Speck "h
island which attracted his attention as
looking very peculiar, and with hi
brother investigated it. He has lived
here for over forty years and is well
acquainted with the river. At that
point the "Mary McGee, " a transfer
boat, used by the Burlington before the
big bridge was built, struck a snag and
went down, on the Cth of April, 1877.
Upon examination of the object in the
river which is not far from shore, it
proved to be the hull of the transfer
boat which had sunk over thirty years
ago. Mr. McDaniel made a close in
spection of it, a portion of which pro
trudes from the water, showing parts
well preserved for the time it has been
in the water.

Mrs. Peter Halmes departed thi.s
afternoon for Lincoln, where she will
visit her son, George Halmes, who went
to the hospital at that point a few days
since and underwent an operation for
the cure of an affectation of bones of
both his legs. It was thought for a
long time" that he had rheumatism, but
as the disease did not succumb to the
treatment, a more thorough investiga
tion was made and the operation was
found necessary. The affection seems
to be located in the marrow of his bones.
Since the operation the patient seems
to be somewhat improved, but it will
require some time to determine as t
what extent the improvement will make.
A portion of the bones of each leg were
removed near the ankle.
