San Francisco Star: Tho only way
'So do anything with tho democratic
arty Is to make It thoroughly demo
cratic. Rapid City (S. D.) Union: Tho re
organlzors should havo long ago heen
given their true name tho "dlsor
ganlzers." Ponnsboro (W. Va.) Nowb: If ro
publicans comblno with trust benefic
iaries, domocrats must unite with
Orlando (Fla.) Star: SpoaKor Hen
derson adjourned tho $2,000,000,000
congress "with tears in his oyes."
Surely it is enough to make us all
Iowa City (la.) Domocrat: There
seems to bo great dissatisfaction con
corning tho anti-trust record of tho
late congress but it is not among tha
Tiifin (O.) Advertiser: The war in
tho Philippines is ho id to bo over, but
there is a large army of "ladroncs"
'that aro making things look like war
In our colonics.
Fremont (Nob.) Leader: The more
sin Amoricau ambassador wants to ap
pear at court in short pants tho less
Americanism he has and tho shorter
he is on brains.
David City (Nob.) Press: What
better evidence can you havo of the
corrupted hoart of republican leader
ship, than tho class of democrats they
honor and fawn over.
Sholbyvillo (Ind.) Democrat: Shel
by county will bo found iti line for
any man who has constantly and con
sistently supported the democratic
ticket and no other.
Farmington (Mo.) Times: If plu
tocracy Is to govorn, it might as well
contlnuo to govern through tho re
publican party and not in tho name
of democracy, with which it has noth
ing in common.
Emmottsburg (la.) Democrat: A
thoroughly democratic exchange
thinks it would not be the part of
prudence for the democratic party to
adopt a republican platform In order
to lose the populist voto.
Torrell (Tex.) Transcript: "With
Roosevelt on ono hand offering fed
eral appointments, and Hanna pn tho
other offoririg federal pensions, tho
negro voter is in an embarrassing po
sition. It's like requiring, him to
choose between chicken and 'possum.
Tyler (Tex.) Democrat-Reporter:
Cleveland and his clique had as well
make up their minds to stay out of
tho party, tqr they will not be per
mitted to lead it It is better that
tho party should be annihilated than
uiut lueso renogaues should control it.
Youngstown (O.) Vindicator: Presi
dent Roosevelt is malting arrange
ments to leave Washington on his
western trip March 27. It Is not ex
pected that tho president will mako
any speeches on tha trust question or
promises1 of legislation or toll why tho
Llttloneld bill was lost in the shuffle.
Columbus (Neb.) Telegram: A fed
eral judge has issued an order of in
junction, specifically enjoining the
union workmen on the Wabash rail
road from quitting tho employ of the
company. Suppose the union men
should ask that same judge to issue
an order which would take from that
company the right to discharge those
same men. Would the judge issue such
an injunction? And if not, why not?
is it an old adage which declares it
a poor rule which will not work both

Two Rivers (Wis.) Chronicle: Dem
ocrats aro not looking for new posi
tions or now leaders. They will,
when the timo comes, select a leader
whoso sympathies, at least, have been
with them in thoir last two campaigns
and their lino of battle will not b9
materially altered from what it was
during those campaigns. Democrats
aro not repudlators nor time-servers.
Monticello (la.) Times: A largo
number of democrats who are now so
zealous in their efforts to reorganize
the democratic party are the ones who
were equally as energetic in disorgan
izing in 1896. Those who were loyal
to the party in 18U0 and 1900 do not
think reorganization is necessary.
Monticello (la.) Times: The plank
in tho next national republican plat
form which declares for the early ad
mission of Arizona, New Mexico, and
Oklahoma into the union as states
will not be regarded very seriously
by the people of tho territories. Until
they give assurance thoy will send a
republican delegation to congress their
claims for statehood will receive no
Eureka (111.) Democrat-Journal:
Mlrabllo dlctu! Just think, the legis
lature of Pennsylvania passing a res
olution against Reed Smoot entering
tho senate of the United States! It is
hard to understand how tho legisla
ture which elected Quay to the sen
ate could object to anybody. But it
may be thoy think Smoot is too nice
a man to, be associated with Quay.
That must be it.
Phlllipsburg (Kas.) Post: Attor
ney General Knox now has the new
anti-trust law with which to operate
against the trusts. The president has
appointed two high-priced assistants
to help him in his work. W. R. Hearst.
probably the most prominent newspa
per man in the United States, has fur
nished Mr. Knox with absolute proof
of tho existence of a coal trust and
that this trust is breaking the law of
the United States. What moro doe
the worthy attorney general need?
Well, a real, heartfelt desire to do
something with the trusts might help
some. We can see nothing else that is
Kenton (O.) Press: In spite of the
fact that Senator Hanna and other re
publicans assured the American peo
ple that "there are no trusts," repub
lican papers are now boasting of the
"anti-trust" legislation that has been
passed by the republican congress.
Potosi (Mo.) Independent: Regular
democrats have always contended that
when the so-called gold standard dem
ocrats win line up on the side of mo
nopoly as, thoy did in 1896. if thev nan
control the organization they will
concede almost anything in the way
of platform, provided they are al
lowed to name the candidate, ir
safe to say that any candidate they
will accept could no more be moved
in the direction of effectively oppos
ing the trusts and other monopolies,
than the rock of Gibraltar could bo
pulled from its base with a tow
Sparta (Wis".) Democrat: The time
has come for county democratic clubs
throughout tho country, the purpose
of which shall be to meet and combat
the attempts of tho so-called reorgan
izes to build up a now faith, and ral
ly the hosts to their standard. Tho
grand old principles of tho party aro
endangered and it means a fight to
keep down tho traitors, who would
disrupt tho whole party for the saka
of regaining power. Cleveland, Hill,
Gorman, Olney and some others, who
helped to elect republican tickets in
the last two campaigns, are ttio great
est enemies democracy ever had. The
party has had enough of their hypoc
risy, and has1 borne the burden of
their sins long enough.
Bellaire (O.) Democrat: The con
gress just closed cost the people of
this country over a billion and a half
of dollars, or about $20 for every
white man, woman and Ghild in the
country, and yet there were demands
also made for doubly this amount, and
remember it is only a part of tho tax
bills. If things go on It will be our
boast that we are a two billion dol
lar people instead of one, and some of
the sympathy wasted on the tenant
peasantry of Ireland may find subjects
Youngstown (O.) Vindicator: The
usual eagerness of republican presi
dential aspirants to get" the colored
vote is explained by signs of revolt
among the negroes, in the north, who
are manifesting weariness of voting
the republican ticket and getting so
little in return. Mr. Clarkson headed
otf a threatened negro bolt in Indiana
and other close states last fall, but
northern negroes do not feel suffic
iently repaid for their support of the
republican party by the occasional
appointment of a negro to a federal
office in the. south
Eureka (111.) Democrat-Journal:
The greenback is called "fiat" money
because it rests' on tho credit of the
government But the national bank
note rests on a government bond and
a government bond rests on the credit
of the government What's the dif
ference? Yet tho trust-owned poli
tician will tell you that there is a
great differences and there is this
the profit of the greenback goes to the
people, and the profit of the bank
note goes to tho bankers. That is, al
ways has been, and always will be,
the sole, lonesome, solitary reason
why the bankers are determined to get
rid or the greenback.
Lewiston (111.) News: There are
seventeen reasons why Hill cannot bo
president The first oneis: the peo
ple don't want him, and the other six
teen don't matter. Moreover, we want
no other traitor who travels in his
class, and there are many of them
waiting for their supporters to shake
the official tree while they stand be
neath and catch the presidential plum
as it drops. The democratic party
fell into distinct disfavor through
Cleveland and let the republicans in
for their Babylonian reign. They
have carried the ship of state through
an era that will be known historically
as the reign of prosperity for trust
magnates and millionaires. The demo
crats ought to make a clean sweep in
1904, and will if they have the right
kind of a leader, and they certainly
will not find him in the camp of a
traitor or deserter such as rHili has
proven himself to be. Let that gen
tleman hang onto his penny for.it i3
the last one he wiU'earn huthe capac
ity of a successful politician; but
when he tosses with Parker or any
one elso, to determine who will win
the presidential nomination, it will
be a clear case of "heads you win.
tails I lose."
