The political campaign in Ohio has
not, so far this year, shown many
spectacular signs of life. That is not
a conclusive sign, however, that there
will not be an interesting fight. Nat
urally there will be n warming up on
the leading questions after it has
been definitely determmed what the
leading questions arc to be as tho
time for the election approaches.
The republican managers set out in
their Btate convention with a regula
tion platform of a rather doctrinal
character, and not recognizing tho
local contentions which, unless a good
many thousands of people are mis
taken, are to be topmost in considera
tion. They indicate that they are go
ing to exploit their party as the party
of patriotism, progress and success;
as the party of the protective tariff,
guaranteeing employment at good
wages to the working people; as the
party of "sound finance," and as the
party of advancement, development
and expansion. They especially hope
to divert their voters in the mining
and other working districts from con
sideration of the alleged sins of the
governor and general assembly by
sounding the annual alarm about the
democrats trying to get power so
that they may knock down the tariff
which protects the poor man's home
and keeps his wife and children from
nakedness and starvation. Of course,
any person of "gumption" can see
that democratic success in a cam
paign on purely state Issues can not
affect the tariff situation. Congress
has the tariff subject in hand. The
Ohio legislature to De chosen this
year does not even choose a senator
of the United tates, except under very
The whole democratic trend in the
earlier part of the year, the action of
the state convention and the plain dis
position since has shown a steady pur
pose to hold the state administration
and legislature to a severe account
ability. In this there has been a
degree of sincerity and earnestness
that will deeply interest, if not mag
netically attract, a tremendous con
tingent of the regular republican vote.
The most intelligent voters in the re
publican party understand this ques
tion very well. Thero is no reason
able doubt that the hoarts of Chair
man Dick and his accomplished lieu-
tenants beat more rapidly than would
be guoRscd from their breezy and deb
onair proclamations of promise. As
astute men who have acquiicJ much
In the school of experience, they are
bound to look for a falling off and
transfer of republican votes proba
bly a largo one. How largo? There
is where the tale hangs.
It can not bo candidly denied, what
ever may be tho hope or bias or the
person carefully examining the situa
tion as it is now presented, that tho
democrats have taken tho best ad
vantage of tho disadvantages under
which their opponents labor. No
stronger man than John M, Pattison
could have been nominated to com
mand partisan and independent votes.
Tho matter of party reunion and har
mony was not neglected. Indeed,
they came as real harmony only can
come, with a largo degree of spon
taneity. Mr. Pattison was nominated
by a convention which went stark
mad with enthusiasm at every men
tion of the name of William J. Bryan,
and which embraced In Its delega
tions many active workers who were
against Bryan in 189C and 1900. It
was so with as distinguished a demo
crat as Melville B. Ingalls, whose
game but losing fight for the mayor
alty of Cincinnati did not unsteady
him in a fight for democracy as the
only instrumentality through which re
form can bo accomplished In this
community and state. Such men as
John C. Welty, Lawrence T. Neal and
Judge Peck came out of the scrim
mage without a pout or a scar, and
with their teeth gritted for a fight
for the winner.
Tho democratic convention might
have done its work so poorly -that the
campaign would have been idle and
perfuqetory; but it didn't. On tho
contrary it has "put up a fight" which,
if pursued Intelligently to the end
as it is to be presumed, it will be

"A GREAT MAN"
A document entitled "Ten Million
Dollar Gift An Endorsement," and
addressed 'To 'the Great American
People" has been issued according
to the Washington Star by Hon.
Isaac H. Smith, of Newborn, N. C.
Mr. Smith was at one time a member
of the North Carolina legislature. His
"First When God caused by divine
providence John D. Rockefeller to be
bora -Into this world of misery and
sin, it was then He blessed you and I.
"Second To have a common inter
est in that portion of the world, in
common with such a peerless charac
ter as Mr. Rockefeller Is, such a peo
ple are blessed by the very omnipo
tent hand pf Almighty God.
"Third So far as Mr. Rockefeller
is concerned, from now on, he will be
upheld, protected and shielded from
every harm and danger by the power
ful and merciful hand of God, and his
body will be preserved even on earth
as his soul -will be In heaven in one
solidified heavenly bliss, in an endless
"Fourth The recent gift of $10,000,
000 for higher education, to be used
wherever and in a manner to do the
most good, puts Mr. Rockefeller at
the head of the class or philanthro
pists and stamps him in his sphere
the greatest living American.
"Fifth Mr. Rockefeller deserves
that the American people should rise
up and call him blessed.
"Sixth Let my meaning be under
stood. Among other things I mean
to say that, on the other hand, had
Mr. Rockefeller given this same $10,
000,000, or twice that amount to some
college or school already rich or a
millionaire, we would have considered
him far from par excellence and a
"Seventh If I understand the pre
cise way and manner the income from
this gift is to be distributed and used,
the human family will receive more
good and benefit from it than any
other gift from the first day tho sun
shone from his beautiful orb in rad
iant beauty, bathing mankind in his
beautiful ray of silvery sunlight, in
special obedience to God's command,
being a great dazzling light created
by Him out of nothing.
"Eighth When at eve we retire
as Americans in sweet repose, we
lenow, among other things, two things
undisputed: That our president,
Theodore Roosevelt, and J. D. Rocke
feller constitute (each in his sphere)
the two greatest living Americans, or,
if you please, the two greatest men
alive in the world today."
"THE THREAT OF BRYANISM"
The Providence (Rhode Island)
Journal, a republican paper, recently
printed an editorial entitled "The
Threat of Bryanism." The Commoner
reproduces the editorial in full be

reader who directs attention to it, it

Bryan, but in order to give the edi
torial in full, such a course is unavoid

as used by the Journal, refers to de
