Washington, D. C, July 1, 1907.
Last week has teen prolific of
semi-official statements. Beveridge
has been to Oyster Bay. and presum
ably with authority, announces
that "We" are not standing so aw
fully pat as some folks suppose.
The statement l'eveiidge writes
for the "World" is not aa specific
as the curious deoip-, but it announ
ces that "natural causes" should
be reasonable and avoid producing
panic, just because it is found neces
Siry to revis- -rome scandalously op
pressive schedules, '."he whole sig
nificance of thin H'Tdi-oflicial state
ment is tint' ;t-v;;,nn is accepted at
ar. Alack that ai-. ,'ltarst and Mr.
Bryan will, for the party good,
make up their differences, has
brought out the first explicit state
ment concerning the basis of the
feud between these two gentlemen
None of Hearst's friends whom
the New York newspapers sought,
would speak for publication, but it
was learned that there is still a very
pronounced ill-feeling on the part
of tbe Hearst people against Mr.
Bryan, and the reason is given
Mr. Hearst, in 1896 and 1900,
personally through bis newspapers,
supported Mr. Bryan for the Pres
idency. In 1904 Mr. Bryan was
not a candidate for the Piesidoncy,
while Mr. Hearst was, aud Mr.
Hearst felt that he should have Mr.
Bryan's support. Instead of re
quiring the political loyalty of Mr
Hearst, Mr. Bryan went on the
platform and seconded the nomina
tion of former United States Sen
ator Cockrell, of Missouri, who had
no chance of being nominated.
Some of the Hearst people who
were seen declared that Mr. Hearst's
friends would do everything possi
ble to defeat Mr. Bryau for the
nomination next year, aud that if
they accomplished their purpose,
Mr. Hearst would not run for Pres
ident as the candidate of the Nation
al It dependence League.
The latest candidate for pres
idential honors from the South is
Governor Beckham of Kentucky,
who, his friends declare, is one of
D m c a'.ic leaders.
He is now by the votes of the peo
pie nominated for United States Sen-
atoi, but the Watterson "dark
hor.-e" muy be an obstacle in his
path to higher honors.
