Twenty years ago William J. Bryan attended a demo
cratic national convention as a reporter, thrilled the vast
assemblage with his oratory and left the hall with the
presidential nomination. Since that time he has borne
As long as this government holds true to the prin
ciples upon which it was founded there will be no need
for special "flag days," because an hundred million free,
loyal people will always be ready to defend the national
emblem at the cost of life if need be. If the purposes of
the government are perverted all the "flag days" that
authorities may proclaim will not be sufficient to keep
alive the dying fires of patriotism. It is not. the flag we
reverence but the things the flag stands for and some
persons seem not to understand this. .
Dallas Defeats Indians;
Mr. Hughes notifies the hyphenate portion of the
American citizens that in voting for him they sve voting
for Americanism. President Wilson does the same thing
only in a little more emphatic manner. It is quite natural
for foreign born citizens to sympathize with their native
country in its troubles, but when it comes to saying this
country shall favor some other it is a different ''hing. The
only way they should look at the matter is from the
American standpoint, not from that of the country from
which they came.

perhaps the strongest personal following of any political
leader the country has ever produced unless it was Roose
velt; but that following was not strong enough to elect
him. The difference in the character of the two however
is strongly shown in their actions with regard to their
nominees. Roosevelt forced the republican party to ac
cept Taft as its nominee, and he was elected. Bryan was
responsible for the nomination of Wilson. Roosevelt
after selecting Taft, got sore because the latter did not
step out of his way and allow him to have a third term,
and deliberately. not only defeated Taft, but threw down
the party that had given him the highest honors at its
command; and but recently threatened to repeat his ac
tion of four years ago. Defied and beaten he then
strangled his own bantling and left it to die for want of
Bryan on the other hand, finding himself at outs with
the policies and course of the man he had made president,
resigned from the cabinet, took up again his old vocation
as a private citizen, and kept his mouth shut like a.gen
tleman. He is still following this course and probably
will until the end.
Roosevelt butcherknifed the party that made him and
strangled the party he created later.
Bryan, honored three distinct times by the nomina
tion for the presidency by his party, when he discovered
the party held beliefs contrary to his, submitted grace
fully, and remained an honorable, clean gentleman. He
has had to stand all kinds of ridicule of himself and his
ideas; he has been maligned by the republicans, and made
a target for their wit. lie has been called a dreamer,
and a fool; but no one has likened him to or called him
a political highwayman, or a party assassin. No one can
Fay of him as can be said ol another personage who says
he is out of politics that he betrayed like Judas Iscariot,
and this with no symptom of that arch traitor's remorse.
There is an old saying that "a man who has
himself for a lawyer generally has a fool for a client."
The outcome in November may demonstrate that the
principle also applies to campaign management.
Colonel Roosevelt has a pain in his side which he says
is caused by being thrown by his horse a year or two' ago.
There are quite a number of gentlemen who backed him
at Chicago who have a pain in their sides from being
thrown, but not from or by a horse. They are not saying
much about it yet.
For a party that really has no excuse for holding a
convention this year the democrats a putting up a pretty
fair show at St. Louis this week.
The candidates for office are all especially patriotic
about this time of the year.

The farmer drives his team afield, and whistles as he
goes. 'Twas thus some bygone poet spieled, of things no
poet knows. Few poets ever pushed a mule across a
rocky farm, or, laboring with rusty tool,
disabled back and arm. Burns was the
only farmer bard I can remember now;
and he believed the life too hard, and glad
ly soaked his plow. I've never heard a
farmer lift his voice in ardent song, except
when, at the noonday shift, he heard the
dinner gong. I used to drag my weary
bones the furrowed field along, nnd I put
up a thousand groans, where I turned
loose one song. The farmer has so much
to do, before the day takes wing, so many
to sing. He only

As a result of the Russian drive against the Austrians
there is a steady stream of prisoners pouring back from
the front ami being safely placed in Russia. It is claimed
that since the war started. General BrussilolV has taken
more than 450,000 prisoners, about one third of them in
bis last drive. The end is not in sight either, for his ad
vance remains unchecked, and his army presses steadily
forward, brushing aside all resistance. What the end
will be is hard to imagine for unless the Germans go to
the aid of their hard pressed ally, she will fare badly.
