he said: 'Wo hi we not only the record

The Democratic president ot the United
States, and the Democratic chairman of

that the war against the protected indus

end. On behalf of the . wage earner, the

cepts this challenge and pledges its faith
to defend against all assault the rights of
tbe workingman and his employer, both
wantonly invaded by reckless demagogues.
We invite the people to-compare the
pledges ot the Democratic party with the
performances of a Democratic administra
tion. Tbe fitness and capacity of the
Democrats to govern must be judged by
its record. Its most important achieve
ment tbns far has been fitly characterized
by the chiet executive of its choice as one
of "perfidy and dishonor." Denouncing
political corruption, it nas rewarded the

RS WILLIAM K. VANDER
B1LT has finally deeided to
bring nn action for a divorce
against her husband, and,
witu her children, may arrive in JNew
York at any time. Their homecoming
will not be unexpected, for several
members'of the Vaudorbilt family have
been notified and a private letter re
ceived from Paris on Saturday by a
friend confirmed the fact. The letter al
so said tbat Mrs. Vanderbllt.who wns in
Paris at the time tho letter was written,
had finally determined to oom to
America and go directly to Newport,
where she will take up her residence in
the great marble palnoe, given to her
bv her hUBband two years ago. She
will live thore for one year, and then,
under the law of the state, will begin
the suit. '
The story was corroborated today,
both at Newport and in this city, and
there cau be no doubt of its autbeu
ticitv. At Newport the cottagers,
many of whom are about to take tbeir
departure, have been watching tbe
movements of a retinue of servants,
who arrived at tbe Vanderbtlt palace
on Saturday and began at once to put
things iu readiness for the return of its
Mtts. vanderbiltTs plans.
A well known member of society has
spent much time in Newport recently
and who is familiar witu every move
ment of any consqaeric made by Mr,
nnd Mrs. W. K Vunderbilt said today,
in sneaking ot the return of Mrs. Van
der hilt: "It is true tbat Mrs. Vunder
bilt is to return and immodiatelv. It
is quite possible that she is now on her
way to this country, out I
do not know tbe steamship
upon wbicb she intended to sail,
Her return nas been contemplated
for several woeks pist, or since she de
termined to secoro a divorse from Mr.
Vandeibtlt. She intends to go to New
port and live there gnietely until she
obtains ber divorce. The cause of her
wishing for one is well known. I do
not know, and I don't think anybody
else knows, whether the suit will be
contested or not. but there are reasons
for supposing that Mr. vender
bilt will not oppose an action
He is at present in Scot
land with several friends, shooting, and
will return to New York probably in
side of the next six weeks. As I nn
derstnnd it, be does not intend to come
baok on his'steam yacht, the Valiant,
but will leave her on the other side,
which would indicate that he did not
n tend remaining here very lone. The
news that Mrs. Vaudorbilt would seek
a divorce first reached here on Sat
urdav. and before that it was
generally supposed by friends of
botb parties that there wonia
simply be a formal separation.
This step was, 1 believe, determined
npou at one time nn aecount of the
children, but Mrs. Vnnderbilt prob
ably dotermined to make a more radi
cal action against her husband when
she learned that their differences bad
become known in America and that
tbe story bad been told more or less
uocurately in the newspapers."
