Ihsph-ed by eh editorial in the World-Herald
yesterday. W. J. Bryan gave out the
following statement indicative of democratic
harmony: ' "I have ' no quarrel with , Mr.
Hitchcock and am not willing to turn this
controversy from, issues to persons. Mr,
Hitchcock haa a right to his opinion and
I honor him for expressing It, but I think
the democrats who differ from him have a
right to expect accent treatment at the
hands of the World-Herald, our leading
democratic paper. I have complained of
the World-Herald's unfairness and shall do
so as long as It continues to grossly mis
represent the democrats who favor county
option. I eonsulted Mi. Hitchcock about
che special aession and was anxious for him
to secure the advantage wTiich he would
have derived from taking the moral side of
a great issue, but in this - case, as In the
case of the 8 o'clock closing law, he has
felt it his duty to take tne aide or the
