!-, - SEPTEMBER 111903.' TKe Commoner, 15 Cleveland's Democracy Tho speech made by Mr. Bryan at the picnic of the Cook county (Illi nois) democracy on Saturday was, without any particular mention of Mr. Cleveland's name, a severe ar raignment of that wrecker of his par ty. The subject of Mr. Bryan's ad dress was "The Democratic Ideal." He argued that in the party, as in the individual, the ideal chosen and per manently pursued gives life and color and purpose and character; but when the pursuit is vacillating and incon stantwhere the party or the individ ual follows one ideal for a time and abandons it to pursue another at vari once with the first the inevitable re sult must be the loss of public confidence.- "A party with such an ideal is more closely, scrutinized and more quickly criticised than a party which makes no such pretensions, because the world is inclined to measure a party by the standard which it sets up for itself." We suspect that, measures by such standard, Mr. Clev...

Tho gold papers have pushed to tlio con clusion 'that Mr. Bryan ought to advocate the nomination of a Cleveland democrat for the pres idency merely because he has urged Ohio demo crats to support Mr. Clarke for the senate. That the conclusion was unwarranted is apparent to any one who will examine the situation. First Mr. Clarke is running on the Kansas City platform, while the Cleveland democrats pro. pose to repudiate that platform. Second Mr. Clarke heartily indorses all of that platform except one plank, wnile the Clove land democrats do not heartily indorse any con siderable part of it. Third Mr. Clark showed himself willing .to risk the enforcement of all the platform by giv ing active support to the ticket in 1900, while most of the Cleveland democrats preferred agold standard empire to a bimetallic republic...
