again become a free agent and do
not think I should support him

is a very queer position for a
person who professes to be a

who assumes such a position
should never be allowed lo go as

vention, or even be allowed to

man who goes as a delegate and
votes for the man that is nom

at the general election far more

in the primary, and we hold that
the man who is an honest demo
crat will not bolt the nominee un
der such circumstances.
JAPAN AND MAGDALENA EAY.
It seems entirely possible that
Japan might like a coaling sta
tion in Magdalena Bay in Lower
California, just as there was long
a demand in our navy for a coal
ing station in Oriental waters
It is also probable that such an
acquirement would not be favor
ably regarded in this country. The
more of a lodgment foreign
powers get on this continent, tin:
more money we must spend for
armament to meet possibilities of
But even if the representations
as to Japan's intentions at
.Magdalena are correct, and prob
ably they are greatly exaggerated
to create u war scare out of them
will be preposterous for many
reasons. In the first place, the
only existing difference between
the two peoples lies in matters of
trade. Just as n business man
never commits assault and bat
tery to persuade a customer to
buy his goods, so the modern na
tion does not spend a billion on
a war in order to secure a few
millions of commercial profit.
Furthermore, the war scare
crowd overlooks Ihe staggering
burden of debt under which Japan
labors. Her people are taxed the
THE DEMOCRATIC SITUATION.
Speaker Clark, in the Illinois
primaries, countered heavily on
Governor Wilson for the victory
Wilson won over him in Wiscon
sin. While Illinois, like Wis
consin, is a republican state, and
likely to remain so even in this
year's election, the outcome of the
fight there between Wilson and
Clark is not without interest to
The fight was disgracefully bit
ter and personal, resembling
more a warfare of extermination
than a friendly contest between
members of the same party. Wil
son, on paper, appeared to have
the upper hand, since he was sup
ported by the major portion of Mr.
Bryan's friends, and at the same
time was given' the support of
Roger Sullivan, the big parly boss,
and of his well-organized ma
chine. In addition, he had the
support of nearly all the repub
lican' and so-called "independ
ent" newspapers. . He made a
spectacular speaking tour of the
slate on a special train and was
j greeted with large crowds and
Crowds and enthusiasm do not
always measure votes, however,
even when backed by such a ma
chine as that of Roger Sullivan.
Clark won, hands down, by the
landslide figures of about 220,000
to 80,000. In Chicago, Clark won
almost i to 1. The magnitude of
his victory came as a surprise to
both his supporters and oppon
ents. It can only be construed as
evidence that, in Illinois, Wilson
is unexpectedly weak.
Wilson, however, may be ex
pected soon to even up matters by
bagging the big Pennsylvania
delegation, since he is said to be
supported in that state by both
the "GufTeyites" and the "Bryan
ites." But Pennsylvania, like Il
linois, is an overwhelming re
publican slate which, while it may
help nominate a democratic can
didate, can by no stretch of the
imagination bo expected to help
elect him in November.
Clark and Wilson have carried
on their contest very largely, thus
far, either in sure republican
states like Illinois, Wisconsin,
Kansas and Pcnnslvania. or in
sure democratic states like Mis-
souri and Oklahoma. There re
main to be beard from the great
doubt fu land pivotal slates, most
of which Ihe democratic nominee
must carry to win Inidana, Ohio,
New York, New Jersey and Con
necticut, states which have demo
cratic governors now and which,
with a wise nomination, may be
landed in the democratic column
in November. As between Wilson
and Clark, none of these states
has expressed a preference,
though Wilson may be expected
to have the support of his own
state of New Jersey. Indiana is
for Marshall, Ohio will be for
Harmon, New York may be for
Gaynor, and Connecticut for Bald
win. The candidate finally show
ing a predominant strength among
the delegations from these states
can be elected if nominated, pro
vided he stands squarely on an
undiluted and progressive demo
cratic platform. World-Herald.
