The active struggle now on for the democratic
presidential nomination affords a uniquelstudy in
politics. Even the most sanguine of the deuiocrats
confess that their chance this year is merely a
fighting one, "but the canvass for the nomination on
7 -
the part of the various aspirants could not pos
sibly be more acute. The candidates are fighting
not so much for the honor attached to the nomina
tion or the possibility of success in the election as
for the principal involved. On the one hand are
lined up the conservatives, men of the Cleveland
6tripe, while pitted against them are the men who
have been regular in their political habits. The
last-named class is vastly in the majority, though
" the former once defeated Mr. Bryan in 1S.
when 50,0(X) votes, properly placed, would have
elected him over the lamented McKinley.
It is now almost certain that Judge Parker will
not be named by the democrats. Judge Parker
was brought into sudden prominence by those who
fought their party's candidate in the Jast two
campaigns. He is known as the candidate of Mr.
Cleveland. Several months have elapsed since
Judge Parker's name was sprung, yet the, judge
has never once delivered himself of a political
utterance. He is noncommittal as to matters of
polities, and refrains from expressing any opin
ions, evidently fearful a statement made before
the convention assembles would be construed to
be antagonistic to one of the two contending fac
tions within the party.
In point of strength at the present time Mr.
nearst has a decided lead. He is getting strength
which his opponents never expected he would get.
Illinois and Indiana have gone for liim. All over
the country it is Hearst vs. someone else. In
Massachusetts it was Hearst vs. Gluey; in Illinois,
Hearst vs. Harrison; in New York, Hearst vs. Par
ker. Everywhere his campaigners aro active among
the democrats, and it is.becoming evident he will go
into the convention with a greater apparent follow
ing than any other candidate. "When his name was
first mentioned he was laughed at. But a man of
Mr. Hearst's energy is not to be laughed at: He has
Become the greatest publisher in'tlie world, and when
he tries for an honor he can be depended upon to get
it if such a thing is possible. Eliminating" the yotf
of the south in" the national convention,' he' would
receive tne nomination which ne is rams.
f Mr. Bryan is still the factor in democratic politics,
The great mass of democratic voters stand behind
him. He was nominated twice and on both occasions
thrown down. Had the sound money democrats sup
ported him he would have won in 1890, when, as has
been previously stated, 50,000 votes would have given
him the victory although not the majority of the
popular vote. The man who tries for the presidency
of the United States on the democratic ticket and
fails because of the refusal of democrats to support
him enjoys the sympathy of the voters. For this
and other reasons Mr. Bryan represents the bulk of
the democratic Vote of the union.
Mr. Bryan is opposed to the schemes of the re
organizers. He says these reorganizes defeated him
and thereby sacrificed the party. He demands the
nomination of a man who has always supported the
nominee, and his demand in this respect is eminently
eorrect. Doubtless when he finally declares himself
he will be found supporting Mr. Hearst, who has al
ways been regular in his support of the ticket.
; But the nomination will be made by the south.
This section of the union furnishes the democratic
strength, and is, therefore, entitled to say who shall
be the nominee. The democrats of the south are anx
ious for success and will vote in convention for the
nominee who appears to be strongest in those north
ern states which are considered doubtful, or possible
of being carried. The south does not seem favorably
inclined toward the candidacy of Mr. Hearst, but at
the convention may support him. The south wants
the party to return to the old-time principles, but
probably will not countenance the nomination of an
irregular democrat. If Mr. Hearst is not successful,
then, it is likely a dark horse will be named and the

Socrates, observing his eldest son, Ijaniproch's, in
a ragoVith his mother, the sharp-tongued Xantippc
rebuked him in a discourse duly reported by the ad
miring Xenophon. "Can there be any stricter obli
gation than children are laid under to their pa
rents!" asked the philosopher. "For it is they who
gave them a being, and who have put them in a con
dition to behold all the wonders of nature, and to
partake of the many good things exhibited befort
them by the bounty of providence, and which hiv so
delightful, that there is not anything that men more
dread than to leave them." The philosopher then
describes the anxieties and the pangs endured, the
labors, undergone, the solicitude exhibited by the
mother for her child; and he presents all these con
siderations to Lamprocles as good reasons why he

The duty of children to their parents is ji'mpha
ized by all preachers, Christian, Hebrew ami pagan,
4k '
and the argument of Socrates is repeated front many
pulpits, "Honor thy at her and thy mother," saith
the commandment But this obligation between pa-
ent and child is not unilateral but mutual, although
the duty of parents to honor their children and show
them gratitude is not often touched upon by the
homilists. After all, we must remember, children ar
not consulted about being brought into the world,
and the action of the parents in bringing them hither
is not inspired by any parental love fur the children.
f we ought to bless our parents for all the good that
we enjoy in life ougth we not also curse them for nil
the evil that happens to us between birth and death?

The term "anthracite coal," which so many writ
ers persist in usin, should be laid on the shelf aloiiK
with that other old favorite of the careless, "funeral
obsequies," .or ; its equally slovenly expression
"yearly anniversary." As well speak of a "dead
corpse." "Anthracite" means simply "hard coal."
It is not an adjective, hut a noun in its own ritfht,
and should he respected accordingly.

Fully 900 Astorians who ought to vote this year
have thus far neglected to register. County Clerk
Clinton and his deputies can take care of about 113

vote will be polled at the coming elections.

to swipe it for him.
