an accomplishment the more notewor
thv In the lleht of Mr. Bryan's relter
ated criticisms of contributions to Re-
nubllcan campaign funds. In the State
of New York a Republican Legislature
In 1900 passed a statute prohibiting
corporations from making any political
contributions directly or indirectly, and
providing that officers, directors or
tockholders participating in or con
sentlng to the rlolatlon of the law
should be guilty of a criminal offense
And I know of no more drastic statute
in this country with regard to the pub
HeltT of campaign contributions and
for the prevention of corrupt practices
than that passed in New lorK unaer
Republican auspices. These were not
promises of an opposition party seek
ing power, but enactments ty a party
in nower securing genuine reforms.
Proper recognition must, of course, he
given to the patriotic Democrats wno
supported these reforms, but they were
pnaeted bv a Republican admmistra
tlon. Congress has also legislated
against political contributions by cor
porations. Purity of elections and free
opportunity for the uncorrupted expres
sion of the nooular win ne at we iouu
rtntion of every reform and cannot be
tnn csppfnllv safeguarded. And there
should be federal legislation securing
proper publicity of and accounting for
campaign contributions in connection
with federal elections. But it must
fairly be recognized that the skirts of
r,atthr nartv hare been clean. If we
search Mr. Bryan's following we shall
find not a few who have sinned, and
also those who, if we may judge from
hoir local activities, are still unrepent
ant. The Democratic party cannot
claim unsullied virtue either with re
gard to the source of its revenues or
its readiness to receive tnem.

LABOE IN DEMOCRATIC STATES
Coal Miner In Alabama Subjugated
Into Cringing Dependencies.
That there's a "rift within the lute"
of the Gompera proposition to deliver
the labor vote of the country to Dem
ocracy is becoming more apparent.
While Mr. Bryan and Mr. Gompers are
making special appeals to labor, neither
refers to the deplorable condition of
laber in the Democratic South. Mr.
John P. White, for six years president
nt the Iowa United Mine workers, ana
now one of the national officers of the
TTnlred Mine Workers Asociation, who
investigated mining labor conditions in
the South, is not so reticent. In a re
cent address to Local Union No. 97 of
Alhia. Iowa, he told of persecutions of
labor in Alabama where a coal miners'
strike was in progress. He is reported
as saying: "The miners of Alabama
have been subjugated until a majority
bave become cringing dependencies. Al
most daily some of the laboring men of
that State were mercilessly shot down
for daring to assart their rights as
American citizens. Ninety-one members
of the Mine Workers' Association were
thrown into jail without baying com
mitted any crime other than becoming
members of the organisation." Ala
bama is a State absolutely under eoa-
trol of Bryan Democracy. !
