OREGONIAN NEWS' BUREAU, Wash
ington. July 18. Word comes from Den
ver that Mr. Bryan "feels confident of
carrying the Pacific Coast states on the
Oriental exclusion plank In the Denver
platform, strengthened, as he thinks, by
the enlarged-navy plank." If this dis
patch properly reflects the views of the
Democratic nominee, it will be evident to
any man who reasons that Mr. Bryan is
building hopes on very unsound founda
tions. For It is a recognized fact that
throughout the next administration, the
United States Senate will be Republican,
and no Republican Senate is going to as
sist in carrying out the pledges contained
in a platform dictated by the Democratic
candidate and ratified by the Democratic
A Republican Senate during a Repub
lican administration has refused to leg
islate along the lines laid down in the
Denver platform; it has refused to bar
the Japanese from our shores, and has
refused to enter upon any such naval pro
gramme as is favored by Mr. Bryan and
Capt. Hobson. How much more readily
would a Republican Senate turn down
these . propositions, if advocated by a
Democratic administration, especially if
those two issues had proven instrumental
in swinging the Pacific Coast Btates Into
the Democratic column.
Could Not Fulfil Pledge. .
The plain fact of the matter is that
Mr. Bryan, if elected, could not force
Congress to put up the bars against all
Orientals, nor could he force Congress to
adopt a more liberal naval programme
than has been agreed to by the present
Republican Congress, which refused to
respect the wishes and recommendations
of President Roosevelt. No more could
Mr. Bryan, if elected, put through the
other numerous reforms to wnich he and
his party are pledged in the Denver plat
form. A Republican Senate would block
This situation renders absurd the 'an
nouncement Mr. Bryan made immediately
after his nomination, that he would not
be a candidate for re-election if elected
next November. This declaration, un
questionably made In good faith, has
placed Mr. Bryan in a peculiar position.
If elected, he would either be compelled
to fulfill his promise and retire at the
end of his term, having accomplished
none of the legislative reforms to which
he and the party stand pledged, or put
aside his declaration and run again,
' The Bryan declaration is neither aa
forceful nor as convincing as the an
nouncement made by Mr. Roosevelt Im
mediately after his election, and in all
probability it is not made for the same
purpose. , Mr. Roosevelt had served near
ly one full term when he came out with
his1 famous declaration; he knew the
powers and the possibilities of his office,
and the demands of his party and the
country. Mr. Bryan, on the other hand,
speaks as one who has never occupied
the White House; one who has not felt
the power and responsibilities of the of
fice of President, and moreover, he puts
aside a second and not a third term.
Could Only Get Compromise.
Should Mr. Bryan be elected next No
vember his administration would be
marked by compromise legislation, such
legislation as would meet the sanction
and the approval of a Republican Senate.
That Senate would not revise the tariff
according to the Bryan idea; It would
not consent to the Democratic pro
gramme of labor legislation, or railroad
legislation, or the trusts, or insular ques
tions, or anything else. It would legis
late, of course, but along very different
lines from those laid down in the Denver
platform. Such legislation would be most
unsatisfactory to Mr. Bryan, for it would
fall far short of what he is striving to
bring about. (
Yet Mr. Bryan, in his advocacy of the
so-called reforms outlined at Denver,
was absolutely sincere, and It Is his
hope. If elected, to see those reforms ac
complished. He cannot attain that end
if he serves but one term. Conceding,
for the sake of argument, that Mr. Bryan
shall be elected, he will be a sorely dis
appointed man at the end of four years,
and he will understnnd fully the cause
of his disappointment. He will then
reallie that only by accepting another
nomination can he hope to fulfill the
pledges made Recently at Denver, and he
will put aside his emotional promise to
the party' and "consent to accept" an
other nomination, even though he may
not be a "candidate for" renomlnatlon.
Looking at the phraseology of the Lin
coln declaration. It will be seen that Mr.
Bryan could accept a renomlnatlon thrust
upon him (provided he did not seek it)
and still not break his word.
Cleveland Forgot I.Ike Pledge. .
In this connection it is recalled that
Grover Cleveland in 18S4 madn a pledge
similar to that given by Mr. Bryan, but
he was a candidate again in 1SS8 and
again in ls92. But Cleveland was
actuated by a desire to reunite his party
and placate others who had been more
prominent than he. and who themselves
had Presidential aspirations. His an
nouncement that he would not seek re
nomlnatlon hrought to his support men
who had opposed him In the convention.
There may have been some similar
thought in Mr. Bryan's mind the day he
was last nominated. His party needs re
uniting now. Jun as it did in 1884, and
there are doubtless many Democrats who
would support Mr. Bryan for one term,
but would hesitate about supporting him
It would be very extraordinary for an
agKrersive man of Mr. Bryan's type,
after four years of unsuccessful effort,
to step out of the Presidency when he
had reason to believe that, if re-elected
with prospects of a friendly Senate as
well as House of Representatives, he
could bring about legislation which he
has long advocated and hoped for. and
to which he is flatly pledged.
Men who know Mr. Bryan intimately do
not believe he would relinquish a renoml
natlon under such circumstances; hence
the broadcast belief that Mr. Bryan, once
elected, will be a candidate for re-election.
Accepting the popular opinion as
correct, the Issue this Fall is not whether
there shall be four years of Bryan, but
whether there shall be eight. Mr.
Bryan, running for one term only, meafts
little 'more than four years of Demo
cratic control of Federal patronage, be
cause the Republican Senate stands in
the-way; Mr. Bryan, possible candidate
lor two terms, may mean fulfillment of
the pledge of the Denver platform In
his second term (provided he la elected
for a first).
CROWD AT TAFT MEETING
(Continued from Flr,t Pe.)
fifth Precinct Republican Club, and Ben
Reisland, its representative, presided.
However, it was under the patronage of
both the state and county committees
and enjoyed the co-operation of ail other
Republican clubs. Its purpose waa to
ratify the nomination of . the National
convention, and to organize Taft and
Sherman clubs. Similar meetings will be
held in all parts of the state from this
time until the close of the campaign.
Only Three Speakers.
There were only three speakers. Senator
Fulton, W. D. Wheelwright and Judge H.
H. Northup. But they came forward with
the real brand of political talk that sent
the audience - into frequent rounds of
Mr. Reisland first introduced Mr. Wheel
wright, after stating the purposes and
objects of the meeting. Mr. Wheelwright
started the precedent of referring to the
Presidential nominee as "Bill" Taft, and
the other- speakers followed it. He spoke
briefly, but to the point', ana then the
presiding officer Introduced the Taft
Quartet which received many encores.
Judge Northup made a great hit with
the audience by declaring that the cam
paign is a "fight between Bill Taft and
Jim Sherman' against Bill Bryan and
Jack Kern." He related, a number of
anecdotes descriptive of Bryan's position
after the election which caused tumults
Fulton Talks at Length.
Senator Fulton was the last speaker.
He spoke quite at length, though it was
too warm, he said, and too early in the
campaign to go deeply into the issues in
volved in the coming election.
An interested listener to the various
speeches upon the stage was George H.
Williams. who applauded vigorously

when something Iras said that especially
pleased him. Among the visitors from
other towns who occupied positions upon
the platform were Senator J. N. Hart, of
Baker City: S. L. Cline. of Corvallis,
and many others who are prominent in
various parts of the state. . . .
Fulton Wants Taft Clubs.
Senator Fulton, in the closing address,
expressed confidence that Taft and Sher
man would be the choice not only of Ore
gon electors, but of the enttre country, and.
heartily favored the formation of Taft
clubs in every precinct of the state. He
compared Taft with Bryan, said the lat
ter was known among the Democrats as
a "commoner" because he ran for office
so often, and made reference to Bryan's
statement that If elected this time he
would not be a candidate In 1912. Mr.
Fulton said he was glad of that, as the
Republican party could now rest secure
in that if Bryan is not elected this year
he will run again four years hence, and
bring defeat upon the Democratic party,
"as he is in the habit of doing."
Mr. Fulton said that Bryan had crit
icised the Republican administration
for the expenditures of the last Con
gress, amounting to 11.800,000,000. But
Mr. Fulton said that Bryan would not
dare to specialize and name a single
appropriation made which, if he had
been in a position to do so, he would
not have assisted in setting aside. The
Army appropriation of $95,000,000, the
Navy appropriation of $22,000,000. the
$160,000,000 for the Postoffice Depart-.
ment, making rural free deliveries pos
sible all these, the Senator said, were
Money for Rivers and Harbors.
Fulton said that he advocated an ap
propriation of 15.000,000 for rivers and
harbors, and that this would be made
at the next session. The Republican
party, he said, did not wish to shirk
the responsibility for framing the law
when it was in power, but it also wants
the credit which is due for the great
good these laws accomplish.
The financial flurry, of last Fall, said
Mr. Fulton, was -but a Summer zephyr
compared with .the tornado which blasted
the country during a Democratic Ad
ministration. He said there -is a growing
feeling that there should be a more elas
tic currency, and that this will be brought
about at the next session of the Con
gress. The' Aldrich bill, said the speaker,
is but a temporary expedient. He then
asked those assembled if they would in
trust such vital issues to a Democrat who
had stood upon three different platforms,
and who would bring the value of the
American dollar down by thefree coinage
of silver. Bryan, he said, first came out
on the free-silver platform, then landed
on another pinnacle with the cry of im
perialism, and has finally come forward
with the anti-injunction platform.
The speaker said that the insular pos
sessions must be retained until the peo
ple become self-govrning. He said that
after he read over the anti-injunction
plank, "that injunctions should not issue
in any case where injunctions would not
Issue were no labor dispute involved,"
three times, he was obliged to ask a
Democratic neighbor what it meant. He
received the reply that Bryan would ex
plain. Mr. Fulton then went on to say
that the plank was worthless, for in
junctions are never Issued because of the
labor dispute involved, but on the charge
that one person Is about to Injure the
property of another.
The speaker said that the antl-lnjunc-tion
plank waa hailed by Gompers with
Joy because he is a Democrat, pure and
simple, belonging to that class known aa
He said that the reason for the panic,
in his belief, was that certain Wall street
financiers wished to punish the Repub
lican administration for bringing them to
Must Revise the Tariff.
The speaker then said that the time
has come to revise the tariff, and that
this will doubtless be done at the next
session of Congress. He believed Taft and
Sherman, not Democrats, should be put at
the head of the Nation during such a
strenuous and critical time aa the next
four years will be.

INDIANA liJ DOUBT
One of Principal Battlegrounds
in Present Campaign.
DEMOCRATS HAVE HOPES
Its Previous Spurning of Bryan 'Bal
anced by Changed Conditions.
Fairbanks and Beveridge
MuBt Save the Bay.
OREGONIAN SEWS BUREAU,
Washington, July 18. Indiana is ac
knowledged to be the most doubtful
state now In the Republican column;
that is, the most doubtful of the large
states. Montana, Nebraska, Colorado
and Nevada are all doubtful, but their
loss would not mean so much to the
Republican party as the state furnish
ing the present Vice-President and the
Democratic nominee for that office.
Fifteen electoral votes are to be had
In Indiana, enough to swing the elec
tion, perhaps, and for that reason In
diana will be one of the principal bat
tlegrounds of the Fall campaign.
Bryan has never carried Indiana; in
fact, that state has been strongly Re
publican in every Presidential contest
since Bryan became a National figure,
but conditions have changed since 1898,
and there are peculiar reasons which
encourage the Democrats to believe
they can capture those 15 votes next
November. When silver was an issue,
Indiana went strongly Republican, but
the silver question does not enter into
the campaign this year. On the other
hand, Indiana is represented on the
Bryan ticket, and local pride will be
of some assistance to the Democrats in
their, fight for the Indiana electoral
Kern Will Help Bryan.
While Kern is not a man to draw
many Republican votes to his support
in Indiana, yet he will aid largely In
getting out the full Democratic vote
for. the Democratic ticket, and when
all the Democrats get together, In
diana Is a decidedly doubtful state. It
went strongly Republican in the last
three- campaigns because gold Demo
crats and conservative Democrats
either voted the Republican ticket or
remained away from the polls. The
Democratic leaders, with the hope of
the Vice-Presidential nominee, hope to
get out the full Democratic vote in
The Republicans are, to some extent,
handicapped in Indiana this year be
cause of the liquor question. Governor
Hanley, who is . a . Prohibitionist, has
taken steps which -have entirely elim
inated the liquor and saloon element.
These forces, quite powerful in them
selves, .will be certain to Join .the
Democratic procession. Kern's law
partner is one of the attorneys repre
senting the brewers and distillers be
fore the Legislature. However, if sen
timent in favor of local option - is as
strong In Indiana as it has proved to
be In some of the Southern states, this
question may be a benefit, rather than
a hindrance to the Republicans.
Black Sheep- in Party.
In Indiana, as in Oregon and Penn-'
aylvania, considerable corruption has been
disclosed among Republican officials..
During the administration of Governor
Hanley the Republican State Auditor has
been removed and sent to the peniten
tiary; the Secretary of State was forced
to resign and leave the state and two
other state officials were let out for
maladministration. The Republicans have
undertaken to claim credit for having
rid the state of unworthy public servants,
but the Democrats will make the asser
tion that the Republican party was re
sponsible for installing crooks in office,
and in the popular mind, this usually
proves to be the winning contention.
It will require the very shrewdest man
agement on the part of Vice-President
Fairbanks and Senators Hemenway and
Beveridge to keep Indiana in the Repub
lican column this Fall, but they will all
be unusually active when the time comes.
Fairbanks Big Factor.
Fairbanks still has hopes of landing a
Presidential nomination, and it will be to
his credit if he can point to a Republican
victory in Indiana this year, for he would
be entitled to a large share of the credit
for such a victory. Senator Hemenway,
who is to have charge of Western Re
publican headquarters, can hardly afford
to neglect his own state, in view of its
vast importance to the party.
Nor can Senator Beveridge, who regards
himself as the annolnted leader of the
Republican party in Indiana, afford to
let the state slide into the Democratic
column. Beveridge believes he is chosen
by Providence to keep Indiana in line,
and his pride would be sorely hurt should
Indiana give her vote to Bryan. Bev
eridge, like Fairbanks, has Presidential
hopes, and he does not want his record
to show inability to hold Indiana in line
against a candidate like Bryan.
RECALL FOR JUDGE HANNA
Prohls, It Is Said, Don't Like His
Decisions on Medford Charter.
MEDFORD, Or., July 20. (Special.)
Reports are current to the effect that
Judge H. K. H,anna, of the First Judi
cial District of Oregon, is to be the
subject of a recall petition, to be cir
culated by Prohibitionists, on account
of his decision sustaining the Medford
city charter, which came up for action
a short time ago.
Leaders of the Prohibition movement
here say that they know nothing about
this move, and It is credited now to
that party in Josephine County. .
Some time ago it was reported that
Judge Hanna was about to resign, that
he might assist his son, H. K., Jr., in
his law practice; but his friends are
now urging him to retain the office,
for the present at least.

RATHER THAN BE HAUNTED,
IiADY SAYS YES.
Sequel Is a Divorce Case in Which
Wife Tells How She Was Won ,
to Become Alley's Wife.
ST. LOUIS, July 19. (SpeciaI.)-After
two unhappy matrimonial ventures, Mrs.
Marie Sezer, 78 years old and well-to-do,
wan induced to undertake a third when
William Axley. aged 66 and a widower,
threatened to drown himself and return
to haunt her if she refused him.
Her divorce suit against Axley. nearly
three years after their marriage, is now
under advisement in the Circuit Court.
As Mrs. Sezer spoke little English, and
Axley less German, their courtship nat
urally lacked fluency. She lived alone in
her home at 1610 Carr street, and Axley
lived three doors west, doing his own
cooking, washing and mending. For sev
eral years their conversation was con
fined to the following: ,
"The tip-top of the mornln to you, Mrs.
"Guten morgen. mein herr."
In the Fall of 1905. according to testi
mony at the hearing, Axley varied the
salutation a bit.
"The tip-top of the mornln" to you,"
he said. "Will you lend me JIT'
"Guten morgen, mein herr, ja wohl,"
she answered, producing the dollar.
For five mornings this scene was re

The same day they sought the office of
the marriage license clerk. When he de
manded $1.50 the bridegroom found him
self deeply interested in the scene on
view through the window. The bride re
lieved his embarrassment by producing
the fee, she testified In her divorce suit.
They went to a priest. He performed
the ceremony, and asked $10. As the
bridegroom assumed an abstracted air,
the bride once more came to his pecuniary
At her home she ejected a tenant, re
papered and refurnished the room he had
vacated, and placed it at the disposal of
her new husband. She bestirred herself,
she says, to cook, mend and care for him
according to the best which her long ex
perience had taught her.
But the bride's rheumatism proved to be
the little rift in the lute of their happi
ness. Axley found that one of his honey
moon duties was lifting his portly bride
to a sitting position in bed each morning,
as she was unable to assume that posture
' He acted as a human derrick for a week
and then said: "I'm not very strong. I
guess I'll sleep upstairs after this."
The bride had to hire a carpenter to
rig a pulley and cord over her bed, by the
help of which she was able to lift herself.
After that, she says, she saw her hus
band only at meal times.. He was work
ing as a watchman, was away all day
and retired to his room right after supper,

He admitted in the suit that during the
eight months he lived at Mrs. Axley's
home he gave her only $8.
She denied that he ever gave her a
nickel and declared that, on the contrary,
she settled nearly $100 of his debts.
In July, 1906, he left the house on being
asked to fry his own potatoes for supper
and took bachelor quarters at 1513 Frank
lin avenue, where he has lived since.
Mrs. Axley charges him in her suit with
desertion and general fndlgnities.
She was born in France, and at the age
of 23 married Nicholas Loriette, so that
she might cease working, for her. father,
a plasterer, who made her climb on the
scaffold and handle the trowel as if she
had been a man. She and Loriette came
to St. Louis 55 years ago, and she has
lived in the same block ever since.
After 43 years of married life Loriette
died. A year later she married Conrad
Sezer, the only one of her husbands she
lo-ed, she says. He drank himself to
death, she declares, in three years. For
ten years Bhe lived alone, and then came
