The home life of the Stevenson fam

Mrs. Stevenson is president of the Wo
men's club of Bloomington. During
the times when Washington has been
the official residence of Mr. Stevenson
his accomplished 'wife has been prom

capital. They lived unostentatiously
and with democratic simplicity, having
apartments at one of the hotels of the
city, where in a quiet but most enjoy
able way they entertained their
friends.
Mr. and Mrs. Stevenson have a son and
three daughters, one of the-latter be
ing the wife of Rev. Martin D. Hardin,
a son of ex-Governor Watt P. Hardin
of Kentucky. The Stevenson girls
were educated at Wellesley and are
young women of culture and accom

Special Washington Letter. '
A reunited Democracy is what came
out of the Kansas City conventlon. The
lines will be closed up everywhere
from Marthas Vineyard to the Golden
Gate and from the great lakes to' the
gulf of Mexico. Enthusiasm is more
contagious than the measles, the small
pox or the black plague. Enthusiasm
was on tap from the moment that the
Hon. James K. Jones rapped the con
vention to order until the gavel of the
Hon. James D. Richardson, permanent
chairman, fell for the last time,, when
he declared the great .convention ad
journed sine die. Everything that hap
pened was heartily cheered, including
the chaplain's prayer. The first men
tion of Bryan's name set the conven
tion in a turmoil of enthusiasm that
lasted over half an hour. The reading
of the Declaration was interrupted
time and time again with roars of ap
plause.
Greatest Convention Ever Held.
The reading of the platform need not
have consumed more than 20 minutes,
save for the applause, which made the
reading consume an hour. . The great
factional fight so widely advertised by
Republican papers and which originat
ed in their imagination never came off.
It was the greatest convention ever
held on the face of the earth. It was
not composed of a lot of official pap
suckers and tax, eaters, but by a
splendid array of American freemen,
who think with their own brains and
follow the dictates of their own con
sciences, and, the result of their delib
erations was the best possible for the
Democratic party, which is the same
as saying that it is the best possible for
the country. The platform is one upon
which every Democrat indeed, every
lover of human freedom can stand,
and the ticket nominated is the stron
gest presented for the -suffrages of the
American people within a generation.
It would be a work of supererogation
to speak in detail of either William J.
Bryan or Adlal E. Stevenson. The lat
ter served with distinction in the high
position in which he will serve four
years more, and there Is not one man
in America with two ideas above a
Hottentot who doubts the qualifica
tions of William J. Bryan for the high
office of president.
Webster Davis' Oration.
One of the most remarkable oratorical
performances ever witnessed was the
speech of Hon. Webster Davis of Mis
souri and South Africa before the con
vention at Kansas City. It was just aft
er the reading of the platform, the Boer
plank of which reminded some of the
great fight Davis had been making for
the Afrikanders, that delegates and
spectators began to cry for Davis. Chair
man Richardson turned to where Davis
sat just back of the speaker's stand,
urging him to come to the platform. Al
most bodily he was lifted on to the dais
and stood for several moments before
he could make his voice heard above
the myriad voices of approval and en
thusiasm greeting him. Each clear
sentence of his wonderful voice, reach
ing the uttermost corners of the .vast
hall, called forth cheer upon cheer, and
when he reached a particularly thrill
ing line the tumult became uncontrolla
ble. For five minutes the shouting rose
and swelled. Finally he resumed and
concluded, only to be borne to a seat
among the Missouri delegates, clasped
in the arms of a dozen party leaders
and escorted by a banner waving
throng. It was a scene to be remem
bered. Davis, magnificent, honest,
splendid in his manhood and his devo
tion to the principles of liberty, had
been the one clean thing left In the Re
publican party in Missouri. Now he is
gone from the corrupt organization for
ever and has turned his great talents.
backed by the energy of youth and the
fire of conviction, to the work of bring
ing the country back to the principles
of the Declaration of Independence,
Forlorn indeed are the Missouri Re
publicans In his loss, which is not
merely the loss of one vote and one
voice, for there are thousands of young
men in the rank and file of the old par
ty who will follow where Davis leads.
Davis to Stamp For Bryan.
It is already known-that Davis will
stump the republic this fall from ocean
to ocean, as he did in 1808 at McKin-
ley's behest, for the purpose, as stated
to him by the president, of-electing a
icepublican congress. Tne election over,
McKInley congratulated him on the
fact that every congressional district in
which he had spoken had returned a
Republican member to the lower house.
Truly a wonderful and unmatched per
formance! By that deed he balanced
the account with the party of fraud
and corruption and then, like a patriot,
closed it forever. ' When he told the
president that he was going to resign
his high office, four separate times did
McKinley plead with him to' remain
and title his convictions four times
sent lor him and offered him the best
of tfce pie aa hl piece without effect.
Tls I eay from knowledge of the facta.
Weleomo to a Patriot.
For four years he had been regarded
as the orator laureate of the Repub
lican party. Now the vials of their
wrath and the flood of their slander
will be poured upon his head without
stint All that his friends will feave to
do in order to answer their lies about
him Jn this campaign will be to repro
duce in parallel columns all they have
said about him in the past four years.
They affect to sneer at hjm now, but
they will hardly continue to do so after
the election,
Wherever there are patriotic hearts
to stir Davis will stir them to their
depths. In districts inhabited by large
numbers of Boers and Germans he will
be" particularly strong in the cause of
human liberty. For years he has been
my personal friend. I have always re
garded him as too good a man to be in
the Republican party. On my own be
half and in behalf of thousands of oth
er good Democrats I welcome him most
heartily Into the Democratic party. He
is only the advance guard of a great
army of Republicans who love their
country better than they love their
party and will join us this year because
they know that we are fighting to the
end that government of the people, by
the people, for the people, shall not
perish from the earth. ,
Geora- S. Boatvrc-11.
Davis belonged to the young gen
eration of Republicans. He is in the
flower of his years and the prime of
his powers, but the break from the Re
publican party is not confined to the
youngsters. Just before Davis quit
them the Hon. George S. Boutwell of
Massachusetts cut the same caper. He
Is one of the veterans of the party, one
of the men who made it. He was one
of the earliest Republican governors
of Massachusetts and if my memory
serves me correctly the first. He be
longs to that race of New England
giants of which Charles Sumner was
the chief. He was not only governor
of Massachusetts, but a representative
in congress, a senator of the United
States and a secretary of the treasury
He was the friend and confidential ad
viser of U. S. Grant. It will not do for
Republicans to sneer at him any more
than it will do for them to sneer at
Webster Davis. The truth is that the
Republican party of today is held to
gether only by the cohesive power of
public plunder. If Lincoln and his con
temporaries could rise from their
graves, they would utterly refuse to
recognize Hanna and his gang as lead
ers of the party which they once led.
Revolt -Aamiast Republicanism.
In leaving the Republican party Gov
ernor Boutwell says:
"It is a vain hope that the Republic
an party as an organization can re
verse this policy of the president. The
hone is as vain as was the hope in
1861-5 that the Democratic party as an
organization would aid In the abolition
of slavery."
Nor is the reVolt against the Repub
lican party confined to men who may
reasonably be supposed to have politi
cal ambitions. It extends to men of all
classes. For example, in my own coun
ty, in the city of Louisiana, there is
wealthy and influential lumber mer
chant who was born a Republican and
has been a Republican all his life and
whose ancestors on both sides of the
house were Republicans and Maine Re
publicans at that. He is a nephew of
the Hon. Israel Washburn, once
congressman from Maine; of the Hon.
Elihu B. Washburn, for 20 years
leading Republican congressman from
Illinois and both secretary of state and
minister to France under Grant; of the
late General Washburn of Wisconsin,
who was both governor of Wisconsin
and a general in the Union army; also
of ex-United States Senator Washburn
or Minnesota, tjoionei Kununi is one
of the few men living or dead who ever
had three uncles in the United States
congress at the same time. He is a fine
business man, independent financially,
and I doubt very much if he would ac
cept any office whatever. Yet with
these surroundings he feels it to be his
patriotic duty to leave the Republican
party and join the Democrats.
Colored Men Ia Llae. .
Nor is the revolt confined to white
men of low vr high degree, rich or poor.
Recently the colored people of Missouri
held a convention at St. Joseph for the
purpose of discussing the feasibility of
nominating a tacket of their own or of
joining tne uemocracy. ir tnis move
ment should spread it would carry , ter
ror and dismay into the ranks of the
Republicans in six or eight states
which usually give their vote to the
Republican presidential candidate. The
truth is that the colored population
have been hewers of wood and draw
ers of water ever since they were en
franchised. They are bully boys just
before the election in the Republican
estimation, and the next day it usually
snows, so far as they are concerned
They are used as catspaws to pull the
chestnuts out of the fire for the Repub
licans, but they are not allowed to en
joy any of the juicy kernels. They are
beginning to realize that their Interests
are identical with those of the white
men in the same localities, and a clear
realization of this fact will lead them
Straight into the Democratic camp.
To show still further the disintegra
tion going on among the Republicans
I will quote a few lines from a letter
I received from an Iowa Republican
I have never seen him in my life. Inter
alia, he says:
"You are to meet Hon. J. P. Doillver
of Fort Dodge in public debate. I am
glad of it. I am a Republican old sol
dier, but I ' am thoroughly disgusted
with the administration of William
McKinley and hope Colonel Bryan wil
bury him so deep that he will never be
resurrected politically. McKinley tuvn
ed his back on the old soldiers as soon
as they elected him president."
This Republican ex-soldier says much
more in the same strain which I have
not space to copy. ; " .
Roarnes' Fall Oat.
The Globe-Democrat Is exceedingly
displeased with the platform adopted
at Kansas City, which Is the surest
sign that I know of that the platform
s right. I know of no safe? rule of
human conduct than to find out whatj
The Globe-Democrat wants tand theq
go and do the opposite thing.1 It has
the infinite gall to talk about Bryan be
ng a dictator when', as a matter Of
fact, there Isn't a Republican of 'any
respectability in the United States who
doesn't hide his head: In shame every
time he thinks of the. doings of the
Philadelphia convention. Mark Hanna
was the whole thing, and everybody
nows it. The only man in that vast
aggregation of trust pap suckers, who
seems to have got from under Martrs
thumb was the statesman who' stole
two or three planks of the Republican
platform which Mark had dictated. It
s said that one palpitating patriot re
ceived $o,000 for changing the word
Nicaragua into the word isthmian in
that platform. If a Republican can
get $5,000 for changing one word in a
platform, it is only a question of arith
metic as to how much he would get to
change the whole 300 words.'
Now, If this letter falls under the
eagle eye of any Republican sovereign
let him recall that I did not originate
the charge that part of that platform
was stolen and has not seen the light
of day, but it is made on the authority
of the Hon. Charles Henry Grosvenor
of Athens, O., who is taken as McKin-
ley's mouthpiece on the floor of the
house of representatives. That valor
ous warrior asserts openly and above-
board that he has the original rough
draft of the platform as written by
Senator Joseph Benson Foraker and
that somebody on the subcommittee to
whom it was given to be copied cab
baged two or three planks, and they
did not appear in the platform that
was sent out to the country. Now, on
a question of veracity between Gen
eral Grosvenor and the majority of his
Republican confreres I prefer to be
lieve Grosvenor notwithstanding the
fact that sometimes when under high
pressure the general himself Is rather
economical of the truth. So the next
time The Globe-Democrat wants to say
anything about platform it would do
well enough to explain to an astounded
world all about those lost planks in the
Philadelphia platform, which are likely
to create as much discussion as the
sibylline leaves.
Grosvenor closed his remarks about
the platform in this wise: '
"Otherwise the platform, although
badly written and in poor English and
without angularity, conveys in a mild
sort of. a driveling way the best ideas
of the Republican party."
Aa Ideal Doeament.
Individually I take, much pleasure in
reading and pondering the Kansas City
platform, for it represents the ideals
in which I have long believed.
On June 11, 1898, in the house of rep
resentatlves, fighting the annexation of
Hawaii because I believed It would
lead to Infinitely worse . things, inter
alia I said: "Our institutions have in
deed been purchased with a very great
price, and yet we are about to inipen
them by entering upon a vainglorious
policy of imperial aggrandizement, gor
geous in appearance, but surely fatal
in its effect, or all history is a lie."
I also feel good over the specific dec
laration for 16 to 1. At the big anti
trust banquet in St. Louis May 25,
1899, I said: "In 1900 we will express
the unyielding principles of Democracy
in this wise: We will not only reaffirm
but readopt the Chicago platform of
1S96, abating neither jot nor tittle of
that second declaration of independ
ence."
MissonrTs CoBgmiaes.
One pleasant result of the census to
Democrats everywhere will be that
Missouri will gain certainly three con
gressmen anu possibly rour, and as
these will be Democrats it strengthens
the Democratic party greatly. The
light for the first place in the Union is
now between Missouri, Texas, New
York and Illinois, with the chances de
cidedly in favor of the proposition that
within the lifetime of men now living
it will narrow down to Texas and Mis
souri. Any gain in these states is pure
ly a gain for Democracy. At the pres
ent rate of increase Missouri will pass
vnio in iiu and will probably pass
Pennsylvania In 1920. And among the
things upon which the people should
felicitate themselves in the census this
is the one which should bring most joy
to Democrats.
In these letters I have frequently
held Missouri up as an example of ap
plied Democracy, a performance which
I wish to repeat now. When the Dem
ocrats came into power in this state In
1S73, they found a state debt of over
$26,000,000 and hundreds of millions of
county and township lebts, every dol
lar of which was created by Republic
an maladministration, misrule and dis
honesty. During 27 years of Demo
cratic rule we have paid off most of
the county and township debts and
have cut the state debt to $2,000,000,
every cent of which will be paid with
in the next two years. And while we
have been cutting the debt down we
have also been cutting the rate of taxa
tion down by three-fourths. What has
been done in Missouri could be done in
every other state in the Union propor
tionately if they would lect Demo
cratic officials constantly.
With this splendid example of ap
plied Democracy under their noses
there is no excuse for any state ever
going Republican any more. Not only
this, but Missouri has the largest avail
able per capita school fund of any state
in the Union, created by Democrats for
the benefit of all our people.
What Will Hanna Say?
Upon his return to Kansas City from
in'coln, Webster Davis said to a re
porter:
'I had never met Mr. Bryan before
and I was greatly impressed by the man.
should say that his chief attribute that
shows itself in every utterance and
movement is his unflinching American
ism. .Mr, Bryan was most cordial and
kind to me, in fact I was delighted with
the reception accorded me."
'Will you take the stump for the dem
ocratic ticket?" Mr. Davis waa asked.
"I do not. know,' he answered. "I
have not been invited but if I am I shall
certainly dp so. , I never do.any thing by
half "I shall hold myself in readiness.
"I believe beyond any question" con
tinued Mr. Davis "that Mr.T Bryan will
be elected. I thought so two months
before his nomination; ' I gained the be
ef during my traveling throughout the
east. - It is surprising the number af re
publicans who assured me personally
that they will support Mr. Bryan, xney
say they cannot stand Mr. McKinley s
oreign policy and his attitude on tne
:Jritish-Boer war in particular. I be-
ieve this year will prove to be a demo
cratic landslide."
In one of his speeches in Lincoln, Mr.
Davis said that he went to the republi
can national convention and personally
interviewed over three .hundred .of the
delegates. . In talking to them about a
declaration in the republican platform
of sympathy for the Boers, every one of
them wound up by asking: uut wnai
will Mr, Hanna say about ltT , , 4
Rosewater Guiltjf
In the contempt case against Edward
Rosewater, charged with the publication
of articles intended to influence the su-
Ereme court in a case pending, the cpurt
as found Mr. Rosewater guilty but dis
missed him without imposing any fine. .
He will be liable, however, for the costs
amounting to a little over $20.
If vou wish to have the iolliest kind
of a time take a day off and come to
Lincoln Tuesday, July 31. The grand
public parade of the Forepaugh and
Sells Brothers shows that will be here
that day is alone worth the time and ex
