MK. IIRYAN ON MUNSEiT
Intorvlowod on tho Munsey propo
rtion of uniting tho republicans and
progressives, Mr. Bryan says: "I
havo not considorod such a sugges
tion." This remark is as striking as
anything in tho brief but highly
analytic comment that follows it. If
Mr. Bryan believed there was much
prospect of a union such as Mr. Mun
sey proposes, ho would have con
sidered it deeply. But Mr. Bryan
knows tho force of tho historical
maxim that "revolutions never run
backward." Ho knows that tho
breuch between tho two wings of
what was onco tho republican party
is too wide to be bridged by tho

"With Governor Wilson's repeated
assertion that his administration
will bo distinctly progressive, the
chances aro that the democratic
party will make large gains from
the Roosevelt wing of the republi

sertions from tho democratic party
they will be from the reactionary ele
ment, which is already small, to the
Taft wing of tho republican party.
This tends to equalize the strength
of the republican party and assure
a continuance of democratic su
premacy." This re shrewd and searching. The
meaning, both of republican and pro
gressive conditions at the present
time, is a continuance of democratic
supremacy. Disunited, the republi

with her dark hair arranged in
waves down either side of her face
and tied low on the back of her
neck, with a large bow of black rib
bon, Miss Helen Keller, tho young
woman who, though blind and deaf
and dumb, has acquired the power
of speech, talked with reporters at
the Hotel Astor.
Miss Keller likes to talk, and she
sent back gay, crisp answers to the
questions, which were repeated to
her by Mrs. Macy, better known as
Miss Annie M. Sullivan, who for
years was Miss Keller's devoted
"There are so many fallacies about
the blind," Miss Keller said at the
outset of the interview. "They say
we can tell colors by the sense of
touch, but we can't. I like to
imagine colors and talk about them,
but my idea of color is difficult to
define. It might not mean much to
you, but It means a great deal to
me. "Red fa mv fa-imti. i i. ...

them to overcome the loss of sight
is tho habit of patience. By prac

either, for I drink beer. When the
laugh which tho thought of the little
woman in pink drinking beer had
aroused subsided, Mrs. Macy said
slyly, talking aloud and with her
fingers in Miss Keller's hand:
"Of course you do; beer and so
cialism go together."
Some one asked ifMiss Keller
would rather be blind and deaf with
the great reputation which she has
acquired or an unknown person with
those senses unimpaired. She re

"The world is full of persons who
can see and hear," said Mrs. Macy,
talking with her fingers in the blind
girl's palm, "but who do not see and
hear and understand as much as you
do with no eyes and ears. Would
you rather be one of those?"
"Never," came the reply Instantly.
"I would rather be blind. One does
not like to give up one's Identity,"
she continued after a second's
thought. "The will to do and tho
power to think is the life of your

and Miss Keller continued:
"That was a very intelligent ques
tion. It made me sit up and think."
Miss Keller forms her first impres
sions of persons by the way they
shake hands, but she said that as
with persons who can see, she some
times had to change her opinion.
Persons she first disliked, .she grew
to like and vice versa. To show her
power of recognition through her
fingers Mrs. Macy told of how Miss
Keller had recognized a bust of
Phillips Brooks, whom sho had
known as a child. Feeling the bust
long after his death, Miss Keller ex
claimed: "This is like my friend,

a question. "Of course, I like them.
