Wherein Lies the Prospects for Democratic Sue
cess and the Election of William J.
Bryan Next Fall.
The Taft victory in the preliminaries
to the Ohio delegate convention and the
simultaneous preparations for a Hughes
organization in New York present a
pretty fair forecast of the fight that is
to be waged by the two factions of the
republican party between now and the
nomination of a presidential candidate
Though some of the Illinois backers
of Speaker Cannon the other day
solemnly resolved that the fight is be
tween "Taft and the field" it is much
more 'likelb-that the -fight will' settle
down before the convention meets into
a fight between Taft and Hughes, with
the other state favorites holding out
their delegations until the time comes
to throw them to the latter that is,
unless Taft should have a majority on
the first ballot. The chances of the
field to beat the favorite would be bet
ter if the two-thirds rule prevailed in
republican national conventions as it
has prevailed in democratic national
conventions since it was effectually used
against Martin VanBuren in the con
vention of 1844 and earlier.
That neither faction, except that both

A. B. Taylor is reported very sick
though a slight improvement is noticed

advanced in years and has been con
fined to his bed for some months. His
many friends would be pleased to know
of some substantial improvement in his
profess to be protectionists, adheres to
old republican policies is a striking il
lustration of the political changes that
have come to pass since McKinley's first
election. It is evidence that the Ameri
can people are at heart strongly imbued
with democratic principles inherited
from Thomas Jefferson.
It will be observed that, though Taft
pledges himself to go on with the
Roosevelt policies, he does not commit
himself to the Rooseveltian vagaries
with respect to the relations between
the state and federal governments. The
revivar of state 'rights -sentimenti which
the president's attacks upon the states
have caused among republicans would
make such a course fatal to Taft or any
other candidate. t
The greatest danger to the demo
cratic party in the present situation is
that the republican party has become
too democratic. The best hope of suc
cess for the democratic party this year
lies in the popular knowledge that while
the republican party has in the past
sought power upon popular issues it has
almost invariably betrayed popular in
terest and made itself the willing in
strument of special interests.
