1896 and 1900.
The True American (Trenton, N.
J.) The Tr,uo American will sup
port' William J. Bryan. The day
when party platforms mean anything
has passed. The Denver platform
suits Mr. Bryan and he's the one
whom ft is most necessary to please.
The True American opposed Mr.
Bryan in 1896, but supported him in
The Post (Pittsburg) We will
support William J. Bryan. The plat
form meets with our approval. We
supported Bryan in 1896 and 1900.
The Patriot (Jackson, Mich.) As
an independent newspaper which
supported the democratic platform
and. candidates in 1896 and 1900,
the Patriot believes the Denver plat
form more nearly represents its po
litical, opinions than the Chicago de
claration.. Accordingly, it, will sup
port Mr. Bryan's nomination.
The Morning News (Canton Ohio)
' The News supported William Jen
nings Bryan and the democratic plat-form-in
1896 and in 1900. The Den
ver platform is no doubt the best that
the democratic party has ever adopt
ed. We will give 'Mr. Bryan and
his running mate, Mr; Kern, our
most'siiicere and hearty support.
The' Times-Democrat (Now Or

.Evening Sim, (New , York) The
democratic party is now suffering
from another attack of its old mal
ady, Bryanitig. The paroxysms of
last night were severe and have left
the patient in an exhausted confli
tidn from , which recovery is bound
to be exceedingly tedious. The turn
ing back of the clock so that the
nomination might not be made on a
Friday, the making of the declara
tion of principles of the convention
a secondary matter to the candidate,
the rowdyism, the confusion, the
cheerful acceptance of ross dictation
on the part of the committee on cre
dentials, showed to what extent the
party has been rendered incapable of
winning the confidence of the people
of the country.

In 1,908, Nwe hayo the apostlo pf free
silver, . binWallfsm, imperialism. ,and
populism adding to his paraphernalia
an organized threat' against the
courts, with other Issues wh,lch the
campaign will develop. There has
been no spontaneous demand for his
nomination. For four years he has
been working for it, planning for it,
asking for it and he gets it because
of his skill as a politician and not
because the members of the party
really want him.
Constitution (Atlanta, Ga.) The
party has spoken through its highest
tribunal and now the hosts of democ
racy, regardless of difference of the
past and unprejudiced by failure of
personal preferences, bowing with
grace and good will to the primary
principles of all democracy the
voice of the majority are called to
the united and earnest support of
platform and ticket.
Leader (Cleveland) The Bryan
of 1908 is not the Bryan of 189G.
In 1896 ho was radical enough to
believe that he could sweep the
country without yielding anything to
men of different ideas. Now he is
conservative enough to compromise
many points of doctrine. Twelve
years ago Bryan felt that if he wait
ed he might hope to retrieve a first
defeat in later campaigns. Now both
he and his lieutenants know that it is
a last chance, a final effort.
Republic (St. Louis) If the win
ning ticket has not been named at
Denver, it is certain that a ticket has
been named there which will at least
keep Taft and Sherman guessing un
til after the- returns are counted on
the night of the presidential elec
tion. William Jennings Bryan of Ne
braska 'and John Worth Kern of In
diana make up as strong a team as
the democratic party could have en
tered for the presidential race.
World (New York) Whatever ob
jections may be urged against the)
questionably a great improvement
over the Chicago platform of 1896
and the Kansas City platform of 1900
particularly in respect to the tone
and temper in which the issues are
Journal (Kansas City, Mo.)
Once more the democratic party has
demonstrated its one supreme, invar
iable faculty for blundering. This
year, for the first time since '88-'92,
there are conditions existing in the
affairs of the nation which might
truly be said to have offered a chance
for a democratic victory in a presi
dential campaign. That the demo
crats have thrown away their oppor
tunity by the nomination of Bryan
no disinterested thinker can doubt.
Mail (New York) Voters who
twice preferred McKlnley to Bryan
are not gohag to prefer Bryan to Taft
without having a clearly defined rea
son for so doing. We have yet to
see any eviden-e that the people re
gret their rejection of Mr. Bryan
at either of these two elections or
that they desire to see him or his
policy supplant the candidate and
the policies opposed to him.
Globe (New York) Murphy and
Bryan, having made a dicker to their
mutual selfish advantage, now sus
tain the relations that were sustained
by Murphy and Hearst during the
gubernatorial campaign of two years
ago. Hearst is not regarded as a
person over nice as to aolitical de
cency, yet even his stomach was not
entirely quiet when he found Murphy
in it. The pseudo-moralist of Lin
coln is touched by no such qualms.
Murphy is recognized as the boss not
only of New York City but of New
York state and no impediment is to
be thrown in his way as he grows
richer and richer.
Post (New York) It is necessary
for all who regard, as we do the
election of Mr. Bryan as highly un
desirable to look all the facts in the
fact and act upon the situation as it
exists, not as we might like to have
it. The camnaicrn will. "b iHfnnulf
It is absurd, to. talk, .ok a walk-over
for Taft, Itfe himself makes no secret
of his belief; .that Bryan's chances of
election are better than they have
over been before.
Eaglo (Brooklyn, N. Y.) The na
tion is confined to a choice between
two men. The Eaglo prefers Mr.
Taft and will oppose Mr. Bryan. Taft
is by nature, culture and action a
conservative, with an exporienco of
vindicated value in jurisprudence and
in administrative work. Bryan's
skin holds tho coro of a radical, the
temperament of an actor, the instinct
of a Bohemian, and tho gay resili
ence of an adventurer on every sea
of expediency. Taft steers by tho
light of conscience.
Express (Buffalo) Bryan, tho op
portunist, the old man of tho sea
of the democratic party, has that
unhappy organization more firmly in
his grip than ever. Ho has nominat
ed himself, ho has named his assor!,
elate, ho has written tho platform
on which they will stand, or, more;0
clearly, fall. Ho has expelled fronU
tho convention regularly elected dol,fi
egates who disagreed with him. Ho
Is tho most absolute and unscrupu
lous boss known In modern politics,
but, fortunately, only his own follow
ers take him seriously.
New Haven Union (Connecticut),
Is thero a parallel In all our his
tory to the career of this remarkable
man? Bravely has ho fought his
battle unaided save by tho virtuo of
his cause and tho appeal an honost
fight must always make to honest
hearts. In splto of his defeats Bryan
has stayed to tho fore because ho
stands for principles that can not die.
Ho got the nomination net hacauso
tho powers that be wanted him but
because the people wanted hlrn. In
November they will elect him to tho
