farther assurance bv declaring that he
will not ba a candidate for reelection
so ns to endanger the future by con
tinning a democratic administration
after a republican senate may have
bcn removed as a "brake on free trade.
Ia fact Judge Parker takes ao defi

of assuring his party that he ia a
democrat now as he was ia 1896 aad
1'JOO, notwithstanding his offense ia
sending n telegram to the coaveatioa
stating that be believed the gold stan
dard law irrevocable, after that con
vention had deliberately refused to
adopt that position.
Judge Parker straddled every ques
tion at tbe iEsue which he discussed
and did not even mention that most
recent democratic if sue regarding the
Panama Canal which Gorraaa raised
in the United States Senate last win
ter by holding up the treaty with
Panama and accasin g tbe administra
