the opposing party has lent for this

"The triangle is now complete, unless

ever course Colonel Roosevelt may pur
sue under the circumstances the Balti
more convention has named the most
dangerous Democratic competitor the
Republican ticket could confront and
has put him on a platform broad
enough to warrant an extremely radical
construction. By so doing It has thrust
on Honorable William Howard Taft the
undivided honor of representing in the

progress under the constitution and in

From the Kansas City Post: TThe
nomination Of Mr. Wllsoh on the plat
form prepared by W.. J. Bryan ought
to satisfy the progressives throughout
the country and dismiss the fear of a
third party headed by Roosevelt It is
a pity that with the abundance of pres

bitter struggle and while Mr. Clark's
friends are no doubt sorry to see him
lose the nomination, there is little doubt
but Mr. Wilson will have the loyal sup

YVatterson Is Bitter.
(Special to Th Journal.)
Louisville, Ky., July 3.--Henry Wat;
terson writing In the Courier-Journal,
Is bitter. He remembers his quarrel
with Wilson when the New Jersey gov
ernor refused to accept a campaign con
tribution from Thomas F. Ryan, the
New York financier. Wat terson says:
- 'It would be idle fr the' Courier
Journal ' to deny It Is disappointed by
the result obtained at Baltimore, and
hypocrisy to affect anything other than
regret and distrust.
"Perhaps here, as in other dilemmas,
the least said the soonest mended.
Touching the nominee, we have nothing
to add to or subtra'ct from what has
already appeared in- thase- columns. If
the Issue were purely personal, the
matter were easily disposed of. But
there are considerations far beyond
either like or dislike1" of Individual can
didates. In a contest between three
tickets headed respectively by Taft
Roosevelt, and the devil, yie Courier

Philadelphia Record comments:
"No party ever nominated a candi
date for president more free to enter
the presidency as the impartial rep
resentative of the wjiole people. Wood
row Wilson would have been nominated
on the first ballot at Baltimore had he
been willing to deal in the usual po

Cleveland, Ohio, July S. Says the
Cleveland Plain Dealer:
"Democracy puts forward its strong
est candidate for the presidency in
Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey.
"By his nomination Democracy ap

Bryan been the nominee, but owing to

expialp its desirability.
Senator Chamberlain is very highly
pleased with the selection of Wilson as
the Democratic standard bearer. lie be
lieves the success of the party is prac
tically assured. ,
Wilson probably was the best choice.
His nomination makes it impossible for
tne supporters of a new. party to give
a logical reason for existence. I ex
pect Wilson to be elected, and rredlct
he will carry Oregon, Roosevelt or no
H. B. VanDuzer, chairman of Demo
cratic County committee That the
Democratic party stands for progress
ive principles cannot be denied. The
line is clear and well defined between
the Democratic and" Republican parties
and the vote next fall will, I am cer
tain, result In the election of "Wilson
and Marshall. Oregon" and New Jersey.
Democracy Is one and the same, and the
progressive ideas that have swept both
states will sweep the entire country.
Locally the nomination of Wilson and
Marshall is received enthusiastically,
Judging from the comment I hear. Irre
spective of party. With WUson and
Marshall we are golg to carry Ore
gon this fall.
James T. Barbee, chairman of Champ
Clark Primary Campaign committee I
am heartily In favor of Wilson and
Marshall, and hope they will be elected.
Mr. Wilson won his nomination fairly,
and I accept the result of the -conven
tion without debate. Mr. Wilson Is en
titled to the support of all good Demo
crats, and in view of the unfortunate
conditions arising at Baltimore hiB
choice was perhaps the wisest that
could have been made.
H M. Esterly. I hope that Oregon
will cat its vote for Wilson for presi
dent, Lane for senator, and that this
district will elect Judge Munly to con
gress. They are all men who stand for
equality of opportunity, for a square
deal for every man.
Paul S. Seeley, secretary of Wilson
primary campaign committee. The
Democratic party is now unequivocally
committed to the principles of popular
government and progresslveness. Tfiere
is a clear cut issue between Wilson and
Taft, and- no exousa left for a new
party. I think there Is no question of
the election of Wilson and Marshall?
Richard W. Montague The nomina
tion of Woodrow Wilson is the most
Inspiring political event of a generation.
Won -as it was in defiance of the reac
tionary and corrupt elements In the par
ty, it restores the Democratic party to
its historic place as the fearless and
unfaltering champion of the real democ
racy of equal Justice and common right
At a time when the consciousness and
intelligence of the masses are awakened
as never before, the response will be
as sure as the challenge was bold, and
Governor Wilson will be President-elect
Wilson as soon as the voters can say
the word.
MarsHfleld Celebrates.
(Special to The Journal.)
Marshf teld, OrM July 3. The hews of
the nomination of Woodrow Wilson was
received here with much enthusiasm.
Some of the leading Democrats of tfie
city, headed by Hugh McLain. the Dem
ocratic candidate for state senator, gave
an automobile parade with a big banner
on which was Wilson's picture. Twenty
automobiles filled with prominent Dem
ocrats of this county paraded the
streets while the carnival was In prog
Support From Umatilla.
Pendleton, Or., July 3. "Umatilla
county went for Wilson at the primaries
and it will give him a big majority in
November," was the comment made by
Will M. Peterson, chairman ' of the
umatnia county Democratic central
committee, when he heard the news of
the nomination of the New Jersey gov
emor. "I am delighted with the out
uume, iir n win give me people a
chance -to declare their choice between
Mr. Taft - tried, studied and stubborn
reactionary, and Mr. Wilson, a safe
and sane, progressive and a ichampion
of the rights of the people. The Issue
is plain and perfectly simple, so that
jnere win be no need for hesitation
about which road to travel."
Chairman Peterson, but reflects the
sentiments of his party here, for, al
though Clark had a strong following,
their allegiance to the speaker was not
so blind that they cannot accept the
choice Of the convention and work for
it willingly.
Though Umatilla county has long
been regarded as the stronghold of
standpat and reactionary. Republicans,
the majority vote in April proved that
the progressive wave has struck here
with telling eifect Both Wilson and
Rooseveir carried the field, while La
FolleUe was given a -strong -Indorsement
Barring the formation ot a third party,
it is quite generally believed that Wil
son will secure three out of every four
progressive Republican votes In this
county. -

Appel's clash with the court, which '
