Tbc locial Democracy and the supporters of Bryan have been greatly encouraged through the forced abandonment of first one position and then another by the organ of the opposing party, but no one defeat in the discussion has \\'e say the party is handicapped. It is worse. It is tied to the starting post. It launched a campaign that was to he fought nut on reform lines, and Mr. Taft wns selected as the particular Moses best fitted to lead the party out of the wilderness of trust government. But the reactionaries were, after all, in control, at Chicago. They conceded the nomination of Taf't as a sop to the Roosevelt senti- 'ijnent, but at that they stubbornly I halted. Every reform that had jbee.n demanded, or which the present executive claimed he espoused wns turned down by the party and to add emphasis convention, to the fact that the interests were i-n tint the t-iriff ex j I w<> weeks iii;o. and ever si the , (',,11111 v Land Company and leaves | a'desire 'to talk I'""" 1 "''-"',' ll{l . s '',"''" l ' ll ""' il V 1 ^ the rest of the mads in a dan-er- ,,,;,. u . i,. ...r.i,.,.

Only a week ago the morning paper averred that Democrats would not discuss the tariff, because it was a home issue, and its bone-tits came directly home to the wool grower and the orchardist. The Cali- forninn was <piiek to point out that the prices of some protected products are away below the rat UN fixed by the Dingley bill/ that raisins, prunes and wool are a drug in the market, and it was shown that the theory that the tariff fixes prices on Ihe products of the farmer is exploded by the present unfortunate condition of the market. The arguments of this paper were ably seconded by intelligent fruit growers who demonstrated that the price ,,|' dried fruit today is below ihe actual of curing.

The demand fur a revision of the tarill' has he- come so widespread ill the I'nited States, that cvev Mr. •WaS forced to trlVe !leed clamor.

There will be no revision sn !-'ing as the friends of the, tariff, which means tho friends of the trusts, are on in the saddle, James Schoolernft Sherman. Joe Cannon's handy man at Washington, corporation fat fryer for the party in past campaigns, head of a big trust himself, was placed on the ticket as Tuft's running mate. Should flie party win at the polls, and even conceding that Taft means well, if he should be called hence, this same Sherman would be President of the I'nited States. Sherman for President; Cannon dictator of the house, Aldrich boss of the senate. Shall the people rule'.' Why, if the management of the. party means fairly by the people, were the so culled Uoosevelt reforms turned down'.' The California n, in all seriousness, asked Samuel Shortridnc that question [He could nol answer, though like jiiie loyal party man he is. he made i the ell'orl. That has been some each voter has already reached a' verdict, and the result, in thisi count \. compared with four years' a»'o. may be applied with perfect fairness to the many communities iu the nation. Pour years since the independent voters believed that the interests of the people would be best served by the election of That feeling was prevalent in Kern as elsewhere, and it gave the Republican nominee 630 plurality. This year, the blindest man knows that the same independent element of the voting population is convinced that the interests of the people will be safest in the hands of Bryan, and that peerless champion of popular rights will reverse the vote of four years ago. He will receive fully as large a plurality as did Roosevelt, with a bright i prospect of carrying the county by at least 750. And Kern is no isolated community. It is a part of the great body politic of the nation. The same arguments that have carried conviction here, have onvinced the independent voters elsewhere. What is to happen liere will happen elsewhere. The people, the thinking people, the people who decide elections, are going to vote for Mr. Bryan and the Nebrnsknn will be elected 'resident. THE PEOPLE WILL JUDGE. Does the morning paper defend statements that are not true, simply because they are voiced by some partisan in the interest of a party candidate? It would appear so, since it iiives much prominence to ibe assertion of the chairman of the central committee of its party to the effect that II.
