is trusted and relied upon to a greater
, extent probably than any other presiden
tial candidate has been in the political hls
-1 torv of the country. The people, without
I regard to political affiliations, believe In
his honesty and his sincerity, and admire
his fidelity to his convictions. He is the
one man who Is able to unite into an
aggressive political army all of the various
elements that are hostile to the Republi
can party. Voter® who do not agree with
his view® on the silver question, but who
believe he is right in opposing the colo
nial policy of the Republican party, and
voters who believe in holding on to the
Philippine Islands as permanent posses
sion, but who approve his 16 to 1 idea,
will le found marching under his leader
ship in the campaign. His influence is
so great that Democrats, Populists, Sil-
ver Republicans, and even some straight
out-Republicans, are willing to put aside
their differences, for the time being, end
assist him in the effort to drive the Re
publican party from power.
That tliis is true was conspicuously
shown in the Kansas- City Convention.
Had it not for the dominating per
sonality of Mr. Bryan, the convention
would not have accepted 4he report of
the Platform Committee. In fai t, the, re
port would have been different. More than
three-quarters of the convention regarded
the silver declaration as a mistake. Tho
delegates who entertained this view were
from states where votes must be gained
if the Democratic party is to be victorious.
The small minority of the convention that
favored the silver declaration was com
posed of delegates from states which are
overwhelmingly Democratic, or in which
the Democrats have no chance whatever
of gaining an electoral vote, or from ter
ritories which have no electoral vote. The
great majority' of the convention, how
e\er, yielded to what %vas known to bo
Mr. Bryan’s wish. The action of the
Platform Committee, In shaping which the
vote, of the member from- Hawaii, which
has no electoral vote, w’as permitted to
offset the vote of the member from New
York, which state will likely determine
the presidential contest, was allowed by
the convention to stand, simply because it
was the Judgment of Mr. Bryan that it
would s-trengthen the party. Such reli
ance upon any one man was never before
seen in any national political convention.
And Mr. Bryan will manage the cam
paign. Senator Jones has been re-elected
chairman of the Democratic National
Committee, but Mr. Bryan will dominate
the committee a® completely as he did the
convention. He will be consulted before
any Important action la taken in any di
rection, and his advice will be accepted.
There is no doubt that he will perform
wonders dirring the campaign. What he
did in the campaign of 1896, astonished
the country'. He Is ae strong physically

his public utterances.
WOMEN NOT MADE TO WORK.
A Chicago jury has recently, very gal
lantly, reached the conclusion that w °-
mnn was not made to work; that her
proper sphere in life is that of an orna
ment, and by inference that it is the place
of the man to work and keep her in
luxury. Since woman was not Intended
by nature to labor, the jury held that
she was not amenable to the law against
vagrancy and could not he held under it.
The American Lawyer reports the case,
and remarks that it is unique and inter
The woman in the cause, it seems, had
been arrested for begging and taken be
fore a magistrate. Mrs. Kate Rossi, a
lawyer, appeared to defend her. Mrs.
Rossi argued to the magistrate that the
law did not apply to her client. She
failed to convince him. Mrs. Rossi then
demanded a jury trial. Twelve men were
selected, and to them the woman lawyer
repeated her argument, enlarging upon
the point that woman was not made to
work and, therefore, could not be a va
grant. History, custom and tradition,
she said, would all support her conten
tion. All of the best literature—especial
ly the poetry—tended to show that wo
man was made for a life of ease and lux
ury. Anatomy disclosed that her struc
ture was not fashioned for the hewing
of wood and drawing of water. Every true
poet had Indited apostrophes to "Woman,
lovely woman,” and how could a woman
be loaely if she handled mortar or shov
eled coal? There could not be produced
from any authoritative source, declared
Mrs. Rossi, one solitary argument going
to show that It was a part of the divine
plan that woman should work to earn her
living. It W’as true, she said, that for
the past 200 years many of them had been
compelled to work for food and raiment,
but that was because of the Inability of
the men to support them. That proved
nothing beyond man's shortcoming. Na
ture and common sense, the attorney ar
gued, were above statute law, therefore
her client, being a woman, should not
be held under the law against vagrancy.
It has been said that anything one can
make a Jury believe is law. This wo
man attorney made the twelve men in
the jury box believe that she was pre
cisely right in her contention that wo
man was rot made to work, and they
found her client not guilty. The Ameri
can Lawyer, by the way, fails to give
the approximate ages and a description
of tile personal appearance of the woman
lawyer and her client, and the ages of
the men in the jury box. It may be that
these matters would have gone a long
way toward accounting for the verdict.
It is possibly as well to wait a month
or two before expressing regret for the
untoward fate of Kwang Bu, the unfortu
nate young Emperor of China. It may be
true that he has committed suicide, os

THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY; JULY 8. 1900.
CAI SR FOR HAVING TROUBLE-
The New York Herald, commenting on
the sending of troops to China, says:
“The United States has trouble enough
of its own. Mr. M Kinley must not go
looking for more in China.
“In spite of the traditional policy of
the American republic, to ‘avoid entang
- ling foreign alliances,* in spite of. the fact
! that the United States Is not at war with
China, American soldiers will possibly go
with the allied expeditionary force to
Pekin, will tight shoulder to shoulder with
the troops of France, England, Austria,
Italy', Russia and Japan, and will help
carry destruction and bloodshed into the
of a country with which the United
States is professedly' at peace."
It is nearly always difficult to under
stand the meaning and- purpose of the
editorial articles in the New York Her
ald. It is certain that the people of this
country do not want to have trouble W’ith
China if it can possibly be avoided, but
would the Herald have this government
make no effort to rescue its minister at
Pekin and the members of its legation
there? W l ould it have it Like no steps to
save the lives of Americans in China?
According to the consular reports, there
were in the Chinese empire last year 2,335
American residents. The inference from
the latest dispatches Is that It is the pol
icy of Prince Tuan, the dictator at Pekin,
to kill all foreigners, Americans as well
as others. If we understand the position
of the Herald, it is that our government
should not lift a hand to save the lives
of these Americans. Other foreign gov
ernments are sending troops to China
with the hope of saving their citizens.
If our government should stand aloof
and refuse to lend a helping hand In this
effort to prevent what promises to be the
most frightful crime of the nineteenth
century, it is probable that the Herald
would be one of the first papers to con
demn it. It is certain that the American
people would condemn it in tfie strongest
terms, if it should be guilty of such in

STILL QUARRELING OVER THEIR
The Republicans are still quarreling
over their platform. As it was written by
the President and his friends it contained
a plank to the effedt that the constitution
did not extend to newly acquired territory
until extended by Congress—that Congress
had the right to rule suoh territory out
side of the constitution. This was in ac
cordance with the Porto Rican policy of
the Republican party.
The Platform Committee of the Repub
lican convention exercised the right of
suppressing this declaration. The fact
that it was suppressed was not discovered
until after the convention adjourned, and
then there was a great outcry made about
it. One Quigg, of New York, explained
that the declaration had been suppressed
because the question involved in it was
before the Supreme Court, and that if the
court should decide that the constitution
followed the flag the Republican party
would be placed in a very embarrassing
The explanation was not satisfactory to

a declaration in the Democratic platform
in these words: “We hold that the con
stitution follows the flag, and denounce
the doctrine that an executive or Congress,
deriving their existence and their powers
from the constitution, can exercise law
ful authority beyond it, in violation of it.”
This bold assertion of Democratic doc
trine serves to make clearer the omission
in the Republican platform of any refer
ence to the Republican position on this
question—a question, according to Gen.
Grosvenor, that is the most important
that has been before the country in years.
It Is, in fact, a- part of the question of
imperialism about which the country is to
hear so much in the presidential cam
THE HILL DEMONSTRATION.
There is a good deal of comment in the
newspapers as to the real meaning of the
extraordinary demonstration in favor of
former Senator Hill In the Kansas City
convention. Two explanations are offer
ed. One is that the convention wished
to show that it did not approve bringing
forward’the silver question as one of the
leading issues of the campaign, and the
other is that ft wished to express
its disapproval of the brutal conduct
of Mr. Croker in humiliating Mr. Hill by
refusing him New’ Y'ork's place on the
Platform Committee, a place which Mr.
Hill had a right to expect and which he
wanted. Had he been a member of that
committee, it is probable that the platform
would have been different in one import
ant particular. There would undoubtedly
have been a minority report and a tight
in the convention on the silver plank. A
fight would, in oil probability, have re
sulted in a victory for the conservative
It was doubtless Mr. Croker’s desire to
humiliate Mt. Hill that caused him to use
his influence to keep Mr. Hill off the
Platform Commiltee. The quarrel between
Mr. Croker and Mr. Hill will, it is thought,
be carried Into New York state politica,
and unless some sort of peace la patched
up betw&n them it will be a hard matter
to get up sufficient enthusiasm among
Democrats to elect the Democratic state
ticket. It is asserted that the friends of
the two leaders are already making
threats against each other.
It is the understanding that it would re
quire the hardest kind of work on the
part of the Democrats to elect their state
ticket even if there were the utmost har
mony among them. With n fight going on
beween the leader of the country Demo
crats and the leader of the olty Demo
crats the outlook for the success of the

Ex-Senator Hill of New York seems to
feel keenly his treatment b> Mr. Croker
at Kansas City. The New Y'ork Times
quotes Mr. Hill as saying; “Croker and
Tammany Hall are not loyal to Bryan or
to anybody else. They simply seek to
get In with a winner at every opportunity.
They have no principle. It has simply
been a case here (Kansas City) of Croker
and those he could ctomrol or purchase
against the decent Democrats of tlie* state
ol New Y’ork.” Meanwhile, Mr. Hill says
that he will do what he ran for the buc
ice* of Bryan and the party,
When the naval station investigators get
to Charleston they will find water, water
1 everywhere, but none to drink or to bathe
in available for a naval station. Possibly
rt is the inrention that the naval officers
at the prospective stat on shall patronize
the dispensary or the blind tigers and
bathe in the harbor. The haste with which
this removal fcheme Is being pushed, by
the way, is strongly suggestive of a de
sire to get the scheme nailed down before
the next session of Congress.
The South African war has now dropped

White House for another term, it will fas

be Mr. Bryan's fate, the Democratic party

Naming the Apnatlea.
After a dinner in one of (he msot hos

<he Chicago Record, a party of very' dis
tinguished men—cabinet ministers, sena
tors, diplomats, scientists and soldiers—
-1 sat in the smoking-room, and the conver
sation naturally' drifted from politics to
the proposed revision of the creed of the
Presbyterian Church. Much to the sur
prise of each other, and to themselves per
i hap®, no one of the party was able to

which the theological system of so large
a community is based. Several under

what Caivanism meant, and a justice of

points of Calvinism to his own satisfac
tion, although his accuracy woe question

Hill’s Quick Wit.
After Col. Bryan made his unfortunate
speech In Madison Square Garden in New
Y'ork in 1596, you will remember he made
a tour of the state in charge of Elliott
Danforth, the banker, and John Brisbin
Walker, says W. E, Curtis in the Chicago
Record. Among other places the Itin
erary was Albany, where the cordiality
of his reception was doubtful, and scouts
were sent ahead to learn public sentiment
and arrange for his entertainment. After
much argument and persuasion, Senator
Hill consented to invite Mr. and Mrs.
Bryan and their party to dine with him
at his beautiful country place, Wolforts
Roost, but it was distinctly understood
and made a condition precedent that poli
tics should not be alluded to during the
evening. It took a great deal of tele
graphing back and forth before this was
settled, but Mr. Hill, whose attitude to
ward the nominee of his party was un
certain, Issued the invitations, and Mr.
Bryan acepted them for his party with
that stipulation. Mrs. Bryan Is supposed
to have been aware of the understand
ing. At that time she was her husband’s
most trusted confidant and adviser, and
through her Influence he insisted that
Senator Gorman should retire from the
National Executive Committee. However,
that may have been, as soon as the soup

he avoids the society of the feminine gen

reputation of a woman hater, but he is

a painful silence at the table. Every
guest knew that Mrs. Bryan had violat
ed the understanding upon which the din
ner was given and had introduced the
one topic which Senator Hill had desired
to avoid, but the host was equal to the
emergency. Ha smiled pleasantly, lifted
a glass of wine and gallantly, in a ban

your health and happiness.”

"Bill, I am told that you are about to
put up a stillhouse. It Is no business of
mine, but you know I am your friend
and would like to see you do well, and I
hope you will change your purpose. You
will never regret it, If you will Just stop
and put your house to some other use.

if you were to see me doing wrong and
did not tell me of it, I should lose confi

money at other things, and you should
remember that money made in a wrong
way never does a man any good.
"Give my best regards to your old lady
and ask her what she thinks about that
stillhouse. I never knew a man to suffer
from taking his wife's advice. Yours
truly, John T. Morgan."
He Remembered Them.

—The acreage of sugar beets in Europe
is 6hown by Consul Diederich's report to
bi greater this year than in 1899. Ger
many has 1,090,521 acres in sugar beets,
Austria-Hungary 839,151 acres, Fiance,
685,:91 acres, Russia 1,353,975 acres, Bel
gium 170,028 acres, Holland 112,878 acres.
Sweden 71.271 acres and Denmark 31,534
acre®. Each power, with the exception of
Denmark, shows an increased acreage. It
will be noted that Russia has the largest
area In beets. This circumstance is an
unfortunate one for those who wish the
bounty on beet sugar abolished. At the
recent conference of the producing pow

ths bounty, which no longer serves a use

and her increased acreage will make her

—Utilizing the wind as a stump roller
is an Oregon invention, says the Farm
er’s Advocate. I was the Idea of The
farmer at the state penitentiary, whose
task w’as to clear six acres, and with the
aid of the wind he cleared the whole
trcct in six weeks, although the timber
was a dense growth, the first measur
ing from one to four feet in diameter. The
winds in the quarter blew strong from
the south at this season. The farmer put
his men to work on the north side of the
fir giove. They cut a log and dragged it
close lo the north side of the bases of
the fir trees that were to be felled. The
preparations were made during the first
day*, and then the men went home and
slept while the wind did the rest. Dur
ing the night a strong south wind blew
the trees dow’n, and they, in falling across
the logs, pulled up the taproots. The
next day the saw sawed up the fallen
trees, burned the brush, and laid their
log for another lot of trees. They pro
ceeded in this way until the W’hole grove
—According to Messrs. T. M. Aldrich and
L. A. Turley, two well-known European
zoologists, man is not the only living be
ing who delights to go skyward in a bal
loon. There are certain flies, they say,
which invariably go through the air, in
balloons, whenever they* get tired of fly
ing in the ordinary way. These airships
are composed of small bubbles, which are
exuded from the bodies of flies, and the
air iq which suffices to support the in
sects whenever their wings become weary,
and the fancy takes them to ride through
the air on their tiny gossamer bladders.
They* can go, it is said, in any desired di
rection by simply swaying their bodies to
ward the goal which they expect to reach.
In one of these curious airships the zoolo
gists found the body of a very small in
sect, and they are now* wondering whether
the proprietor of the balloon thoughtfully
placed it there with the object of feeding
on it during its aerial journey. As an
argument in favor of the latter hypothesis
they point out that flies w’hile traveling
in balloons dannot satisfy their hunger un
less they return to the earth.
—According to Prof. Hans Gross of Ber
lin, valuable clues toward the detection
of criminals may be obtained through an
examination of cigar tips. Of course, this
applies to those who smoke cigars, the
tips of which they carelessly throw away
in the street or elsewhere, “if y’ou.pick
up any tip,” he says, “and examine it
closely, the chances are that you will be
able to learn something as to the person
ality and social position of the man who
threw it away*. In the case of criminals
the first point to be considered is the man
ner in which it was cut off from the cigar.
If a knife or any other instrument was
used for this purpose, then this instrument
will doubtless be found on the criminal.
If, on the other hand, it was bit off with
the teeth, a thorough examination of the
tip will show' what kind of teeth were used
for this purpose. A man with a row of
even teeth will bite off the end of his ci
gar squarely’ and evenly’, whereas one with
jagged, uneven teeth will bite it clumsily
and in such a manner as to leave clearlv
visible the marks of his incisors. By com
paring the mark* on cigar tips with the
teeth of supposed criminals, prosecuting
officers and detectives will be able to ob
tain much information which they could
not possibly obtain any other way " The
police do not thank Prof. Gross for this
suggestion, since they* are afraid that a
new duty may be imposed on thern-that
of looking out carefully for cigar tips
which may* be throwrn into the streets.
