PITTSFIELD, MASS. THE BERKSHIRE EVENING EAGLE SATURDAY, MAY G, 102a Parties Do Not Look for Treason in Either One of the Keynote Speeches , Next Month Both Orators Will Point with Pride and View with. Alarm the Trend of Times Republicans Will Indicate in Democrats All the Evils to Which Our So-called Democracy Has Given Birth and Democrats Will Find as to Wickedness in the Republicans .Nothing Else but Fess and Bowers in Contrast Preparing for Conventions. . - T By EnvET S. GEimX WASHINGTON. D. C-May 5 Jus,' & raonih and a week from today the r'p-b Lean performance wifi , com-r cnee.1 Chairman Butler of the ra-t cnal committee vail call the conven-t.on to order. Senator Fess of Ohio. 1 a vi rg been frately elected temporary will ascend the rostrum . a hi atcault the delegates with the Select speech. And what a point-l-g-wiTh-pride" will be there, my brethren, what shouLng eulogies of tie Coo .Idee administration and what em and robust view lng-with- lam of the major delinquencies of t e democrats. What storming sp-p'auee front the perspiring delegates and general d.ssatisfaction all around. Resolutions There will be a resolutions committee which will hold hearings perhaps t r.i squabble over sundry proposed planks which will mean very little In tie conung The permanent chairman will be instaled and git a t o.ce to another rousing party speech la the process. There will be nomina-t.ors -accord .rg to the formula used by Noah; which means that solemn end red-faced gentlemen wall talk and talk, citing point after point which a successful candidate must hate and prefacing each point with the mysterious declaration that "the r-an whom I am about to nominate" possesses this priceless qualification; and concluding, when eery one is and asleep, with the name of the candidate. It is the formula of clunax, which Is today very anti-cli-rract.c since the very cats In the basement know the candidate to be nominated by etery speaker. But it is Noahs formula and therefore likely to be followed by most nominators in both contentions. Whenever a candidate Is nominated Ns supporters seek to stage a cem-c ns trat.on"and parade around and raise the rocf and generally disrupt order and reason. If the "demonstra-t.on can be kept going an hour Its authors are considerable and worth-w hue. When A1 Smith, for instance, is rimed at Houston his realots will perhaps try for a record and keep the com er.Uon hall In a riot for an tme-r ua.ed length cf time; large-lunged arid carefree gentlemen judiciously p anted in the gallery can furnish p-od g ous aid on such occasions, and they have been uul.zed at times by the best cf our statesmen. , Conventions Alike Both comentions will be about the m broad aspect, except that the irpb'.caa one is generally more ed and respectable on the sur Activity Hri Building Trades Is Believing ' Siutation BOSTON. May 5 Unemployment In Massachusetts showed much im-I -o-.crrrr.t during March. Report of t ,e department of labor and Industry s shows that among organized I uJimg tradesmen on April 2 there were 14.165 r.ot at work as compared w.i 16 '2 on March 1.

There will be the usual scheming? In warm and quiet rooms at night, planning lor the next days battle , and Messrs. Mellon. Butler, Roraback and Hilles may ask the Hoover managers. "What have you?"; while at Houston the 100 per cent southerners will seek combinations for beating Smith. It will be observed that the democrats have chosen Claude G. Bowers as their keynoter. Mr, Bowers Is the man who would, have Invented those famous phrases pointing-with-jSride and "vlewlng-with-alarm." if they had not been too mild for him; too mild and unpio-turesque and plain. Mr. Bowers, as those who heard him at the Jackson day dinner here this year will testify, has pride and alarm all right, but he possesses so much of these emotions that his diction is backed up against a red fire background, with ruaty long-tailed coats and muskets hovering on the horizon. From which it can be deduced that the democrats are In for a rattling old-style keynote oration. This little guy, as Will Rogers calls Bowers.does not look like a keynoter; rather, pale and slight and thin, with eyeglasses and hollow chest, and an aspect that is a bulls-eye for a small town school teacher, he looks like most anything but. But "this little guy" can put words together and intelligence and originality were not left out of his make-up, any one at that Jackson day dinner will tell you. His style is what the books call "flowery. with a new flower, or at least a new color to the flower, every second. , Bowers' Houston Appearance It will be Interesting to see how he gets away with his Houston effort. As he turned his machine-gun charges, denunciations, and epigrams, on those diners at the Jackson day ban quet the decision hovered for a long while between good-natured amusement and cheering enthusiasm, with the latter on top at the end. He will probably make a hit at Houston. For. although the statement Is a strong one, a democratic national convention is calculated to be less judicious than a Jackson day dinner. The democrats are promised a better keynoter than the republicans. For Senator Fess looks little more like an orator than Bowers, gets just as excited, and cant write as good a speech as the latter. Mr. Fess is a little man Who used to teach, who has a rather mincing articulation, grows red In the face w hen excited, and sees Just as much iniquity in the democrats as Bower does in the republicans. There will be no treason in either keynote. April 2; 65.5 per cent on March X, and 35.4 per cent on February 1. Returns of the 13 cities considered as of April 2 all showed improvement with the exception of Holyoke, where unemployment continued excessive. A decided Improvement was shown In Springfield, Brockton and Lawrence. NO SCANDAL WIgg: Sorry to keep you waiting, old man; but Ive Just been jset ting a trap for my wife. Wagg: Heavens!

TO POT EIID TO HYPOCRISY Washington Paper to Tell Truth About Salons Using Liquor WASHINGTON. May 5. The Washington Daily News announced editorially yesterday that it proposes henceforth to publish I as news the appearance on duty of any so-called dry member of the house or senate in an obviously intoxicated condition.' "The decision was made to "put an end to such hypocrisy the News said. "The spectacle of a senator or rep resentative. under the . influence of liquor, undertaking publicly to discuss affairs of state. Is always disgusting, the editorial said, "When Such a sen a tor or representative Is one who con slstently votes for prohibition, the hypocrisy and rank abuse of special privilege make the spectacle intolerable. ' The newspaper admits that, congressmen have as much right to the "synthetic pleasure" of drinking as anyone else. It says the "great majority ofi members of both houses are "gentlemen, capable of controlling their appetites. And It adds that "on the whole, probably, there are as many or more teetotalers among the dry voting members as among the wet voting members, though "this is I question that has never been de cided. t j The News says it does no Intend to "snoop and explains: "But when a fire-eating prohibition 1st wanders aimlessly about the sen ate chamber during the discussing of important business and finally Inter' rupts to ask the , presiding officer.
