Thi ia, without question, the most
remarkable presidential campaign the
country has seen In sixty years. For
the first time since the civil war party
lines seem to have disappeared com completely.

candidate is not, "Does he belong to

AHniiri and Theodora Roosevelt, are
not so readily classified. Each' stands 1
more or less in a class by himself.
Champ Clark has been the surprise
of the primaries. No one supposed that
he could so easily carry so many states,
or win so many delegates. It is true
that he has been a long time In public
life a member of the House of Rep Representatives

twenty-five years, he has always voted

agile In supporting both Bryan and

believed, if he bore the name democrat,
Clark was behind him. He has no Ideas
that are not sanctioned by ancient
democratic precedent. Indeed, he is a
fine example of the old-fashioned par partisan

speeches are old-fashioned illuminat illuminated
ed illuminated by quotations from old poems and
songs, old adages, and '"catch phrases
from the Bible and Thomas Jefferson,
and enlivened with old-fashioned jibes
at the republican party."
A pamphlet widely circulated by the
Clark campaign committee gives six
reasons why Clark should be president.
The first two of these represent the
strongest arguments that have been
advanced for Clark. I quote:
"1. .-He is a dependable democrat
who has never wavered in support of
his party. He voted for Bryan in 1898;
for Bryan in 1900; for Parker in 1904,
and for Bryan in 1908, and for. every
other democratic candidate since he
became of age. He not only voted but
he supported the ticket with pen and
2. His record cannot be assailed
from any quarter, for it is straightfor straightforward
ward straightforward and democratic. His supporters
invite the closest scrutiny of his long
and active public service. We submit
it to the democracy of the nation as an
open book, and challenge attention."
Thus Clark is the sort of a candidate
who can be voted for without thinking!
And in these perplexing times It Is hard
work to think and decide.
In whatever particulars the old old-fashioned
fashioned old-fashioned democratic creed Is still pro progressivefor
gressivefor progressivefor example, in the matter
of tariff reduction Clark Is truly a
progressive,, but I have nowhere found,
after a somewhat extensive reading of
his speeches, that he shows any vig vigorous

There is also another influence work working

Randolph Hearst. Clark acknowledges
the potency or the Hearst support in a
letter to the Chicago American after
the Illinois primaries. He says:
"I am profoundly grateful to all who
aided in carrying Illinois for me.
Among them was the powerful inflence
of the Hearst newspapers, who have
stood by me loyally, manfully and unselfishly-
from the beginning, from
Massachusetts to California."
That Mr. Hearst is supporting Clark,
as usual, with idea that he may him himself,

campaign, is shown in this ingenuous
letter to Mr. Hearst to the editor of

crying in the wilderness twenty years

would treat the symptoms. But the

say that the difficulty is not merely the
tariff and the trusts, but the control of

"Thank you . ." On the point

His eyes blazed, shifting from the al alcove

"Monsieur?" he demanded harshly,

Maddened beyond prudence, Des
