In selecting a party, principles, prac
ticability and previous political affilia
tions are factors to be taken into con
sideration, and the last of these is, in
my opinion, the least.
For the purpose of political advance
ment, party fealty is indispensable. Once
in a lifetime, perhaps, the successful
politician may ses his way clear to bolt;

Bryan compared the position of Presi-
4ent McKinloy with that of George III. L off though the man with the
legiance and a capacity for the assimila

But for the non-ofllce seeking masses,
parlies are a means, not art end, and one
who has the good of his conntry at heart
finds it necessary to have his party col
lar a "biggish" fit so he can easily slip
towards the American colonies in 1776.
He cited the president's statement that
the United States would hold the archl
polfcgo, and further quoted him as say,
Ug- "I confidently believe that congress
ill provide for these people a govern'
at-nt that will bring them blessings and
advanoe their material interests.'
