'Who -v 11 tie Democratic iVondnri
tial candidate be? Distit.LJ - less cor
tail. Is U-,e nt,.Hwer gi>'>n t*» "> a:
que; 'on than to the question of Ui
Rei'i Mican candidate. It is generally
coii • led that Mr. McAdoo may go in
to th? convention with forty-live or
fift; per cent of the delegates in
struct eth for him; But it is likewise
con . .led that Mr. McAdoo has faded
to capture the imagination either of
his party or the country. Indeed. •»'>
iou defection has occurred in quar
ters where McAdoo support might
have been reasonably expected. I h«'
Democratic field is still an open one.
The casual mention of Josephus
Daniels, as a" possible candidate, lias
sparked more public'ami partisan in
terest than the political press re
flect. Mr. Daniels, it is true, promptly
announced that he was not a -candi
date, and his state, North Carolina,
did not name an;, delegtes fur him.
Nevertheless hi name etHne-with the
effect of light and hope to thousand
of Democrat;', lie represents qualiti*'
which are too in present
politics. He stands for . oni" ot tin 1
best achievements in public life. In
fact the naming of Dunul.. a i.
possibility threw on element into the
situatioti v.hich i uiv yet have i?s*i» T "-
, tant results.
Every Presidential convention | oes
through three stages. First .there i.-
the complimentary introduction of
various candidates, "fuvorite sons,
"available timber," "receptive party
wheel-horses," and all- the rest. I hat j
over, the convention settles down into I
its second stage, the fig 111 between
candidates who really count. Ihe im
politic thing about stlong convention
candidates i. tin:', they evoke a.-
strong opposition. When a convent ion
readies' a deadlock tliroui li the do
termination and strength of two can
didates, it h-giia to slip into ii
third Stage, the search for compi..
mise cund.da'e-. f>■ r "the d.nk ho.
v. hose modesty h:'.- c;.atid n> on: ...
lilul whose pa record render-
acceptable to all lact. of: .
It may be that ii the third stag,
of the Deniociattc national come.,
the name of a nii'i like Josepiiu.-
Ilaniels wjjl ionic with unifying po>\
er and carry off the nomination fa n
the stronger conUnders. Spoal.' .
generally, the Democrats could co:
ceivably do much worse than nai •
Mr. Daniels."
Dehorn lmlependent.
It is gratifying to sec the great
leaders of our country getting to
gether,. looking for some way to sup the manufacture, selling and
carrying of pistols.
It is a great menace to the safety
and peace of the people \yhen e\e>ry
coward in the land has his pociiets
stuffed with pistols.
VFhere is much sign of someswetion
The America* Bar Association recent
ly gave the matter consideration
Numerous bills are before Congress,
dealing with the nuisance.
American cowards murder more
people with pistols every year than
all of Kurope. The chief cause is, wc
leave them so handy and in such abun
dance. Cut out pistols and stop many
murder*. /

What ia a Diplomat? Many defini
tions of a diplomat have been given.
Some have said a diplomat was one
who could settle trouble now ajid
fcaep it settled a long time. Others
1 liave said a diplomat is one who can
j stand before, your face, take for his
own use the thing.; that rightly be
long to you, smile himself and keep
you smilinp all the time.
The most recent definition is given
in parable, thus, "If a gypsy horse
trailer should get into high diploma
tic circles, he would look buck upon
( his former life as one of honest toil."
. It really looks as if mast of io«-
. diplomats of today arc seeking to
cheat ami rob each other.
The diplomat who carries the larjr
est stick and has the largest puise
occupys the seat at the head of the
table while the small fellow is found
perched here and there on footstools
and found in lowly places.
Diplomacy i> good in principle but
is, doubtless, pretty raw in practice.
Hilly Sunday is more than a wonder
For a man to travel and preach and
plead with sinners the nation over and
not lie absent from the pulpit in .'l2
i'eaJC. is rather remarkable. And then
he d:d not give up. he was forced to
stop on account of sickness.
