Makes Sensational Answer to
Vance MeCormick at Big Ryan
Dinner Last Night
Judge Eugene C. Bonniwell, of
Philadelphia, whose specialty appears
to be putting sprags into the wheels
of the Democratic machine, gave the
orators and organs of the bosses op
portunity for fresh outbreaks of pain
last night at the Ryan dinner in Phila
delphia. The dinner was ostensibly in
honor of Thomas Jefferson's birthday,
hut in reality a boost for Ryan. Them
were 2,284 diners. Henry Budd, vet
eran reformer, presided and Demo
crats from all over the State gathered.
The speakers included Henry C. Niles,
of York, who was a leader in the Ber
ry campaign; Thomas H. Greevy. can
didate for Lieutenant-Governor in
1910: City Solicitor Ryan, who talked
broad Democracy and never men
tioned his opponents, and Judge Bon
The Philadelphia Inquirer gays the
dinner was "The largest Democratic
dinner ever given in this city." The
Record says that it was a notable
demonstration nnd the Philadelphia
l-eflfrer, an independent newspaper,
A mifihly host dined last night in
honor of the Father of Democracy,
Thomas .lefferson. nnd at the same
time honored Michael .1. Ryan, who
Rspires to the Democratic nomination
for Governor. It wat an unusual din
ner. It coat only one dollar a plate,
but leaders of the Democratic party
from nearly every county In the State
particapted. Tons of food were served;
few ate. They talked Democracy,
sang of Democracy, cheered Ryan and
pledged to Ills candidacy their unre
served, unqualified support."
Urge Harmon?, Tdo
The Record says: "Generally
speaking, the addresses were sharply
aivldad into two kinds—those which
threw down the gauntlet to the Pal
mer- McCormick-Morris combination
In the party, and those which offered
the olive branch to the reorganizes.
Thomas H. Greevy, of Altoona, and
Judge Eugene C. Bonniwell, of this
city, were bold and outspoken in their
denunciation of the use of Federal
patronage by Congressman Palmer to
advance his own senatorial candidacy
and the gubernatorial aspirations of
Vance McCormlck. Henry C. Niles,
of York, more mildly ridiculed the
patronage scandal, but Henry Budd,
who w-is toastmaster, and Congress
man Michael P. Conry, of New York,
strongly advised party harmony. Mr.
Hudd placed it most forcibly when
he said: 'We are not basing our
claims upon the weakness of any other
Democrat, but on the strength of our
own candidate, Mr. Ryan.' Mr. Ryan
liimsolf avoided all mention of fac
tional fights. He spoke on the prin
ciples of Thomas Jefferson and told of
the great mission of Democracy."
A Terrific Attack
Municipal Court Judge Eugene C.
Bonniwell made the most sensational
speech. In replying to a speech by
Vance McCormlck, at Danville, In
which he said McCormlck assailed
Ryan as "a bipartisan candidate," the
Judge renewed his charge that "the
Democratic party is obsessed by a
leadership, both new and incompe
tent" and. IK* added, "and I now
charge corrupt as well."
'"ontinuing he said:
"The vain and incompetent leadcr
ship' of Vance MeCormick, Palmer
and Morris reduced the Democratic
vote in Pennsylvania front 448,000 in
1903 to 395,000 in 1912. This leader
ship has brought Pennsylvania to the
brink of a nauseattng scandal. The
corruption of the little post offices in
York and Adams counties are only
boils compared to the cancer under
the surface.
"When in the history of the Demo
cratic party was a man authorised bv
Its leadership to go over the State as
their official bagman and collect the
contributions of the petty officeholders
as this Wilson Bailey has done. State
Chairman Morris deliberately mis
stated facts when he charged the of
fenses in York and Adams counties
to the Congressman.
"The contract for the $75 was made
with Mr. Morris' collector, and as
Morris says he Is thoroughly honor
able, and has his entire confidence, it
must be assumed that he did those
things with his knowledge and ap
proval. Does not their own course
make this true? Mitchell Palmer
himself violated the Federal statutes
when he permitted circular letters to
go out containing his name, soliciting
contributions from officeholders. No
gang organization, Democratic or Re
publican, ever filched the assessment
of contributions to support In a pri
mary light in behalf of their own can
didate as these three worthy gentle
men are now doing.
"Instead of this being a contest of
reorganization against a bipartisan
campaign, U is a contest of selfish, dis
honest marplots in control of the State
machinery against the honest Dem
ocracy of Pennsylvania. Were it pos
sible that this lame, lamentable, lu
dicrous leadership were to be contin
ued, it would only serve as a warrant
to blackmail the petty officeholders
and furnish a. subscription list of the
Harrlsburg Patriot, perchance pa>

Talks of Woe Are Heard From
Various Portions of Pennsyl
vania These Days
Here are a few newspaper extracts
about the war among the Democrats
in this State. There are many others
which might have been used.
The Pittsburgh Gazette-Times,
speaking about the retirement of
Henry H. Wilson as United States
marshal and the selection of Joe How
ley for the place says:
"The effect of the flare-up over the
resignation of Marshal Wilson is fear
ed by Vance C. McCormick, adminis
tration candidate for the Democratic
gubernatorial nomination in Pennsyl
vania. There has been so much dis
satisfaction over Federal appointments
that many disappointed party workers
have left McCormick for Michael J.
Ryan, who is fighting the Palmer-Mo
Cormick leadership in the State. The
reorganization element in the party
fears that Wilson, in his campaign
for Congress In the Twenty-fourth
district, will attack Joseph F. Gitffey
and thereby spread further dissatis
faction in the already depleted ranks
of reorganization Democrats."
A dispatch from Bradford to Pitts
burgh says: "The Democratic party
of McKean county is split badly. Re
cently County Chairman James G.
Paul and others gave a reception for
Vance C. McCormick and others. Dis
gruntled members of the party have
passed resolutions, one section of
which read: 'Whereas, the chairman
of the Democratic county committee
and a few committeemen have assum
ed the name of the Democratic party
of McKean county to discriminate
against Michael J. Ryan, Democratic
candidate for governor, by their in
dorsement of Vance C. McCormick for
that office, such unauthorized action
Is in utter disregard of the spirit of
the uniform primaries law of Pennsyl
vania and in violation of the Demo
cratic principles of justice and equal
ity and destructive of the unity and
harmony of the party.' *A meeting of
Democrats is called for Friday even
ing to give equal favor to Michael J.
Ryan's candidacy.
The Philadelphia Ledger says edi
torially: "Wilson Bailey, accredited
collector of funds for the Democratic
State committee, is grievously in er
ror if he assume that his present atti
tude of contempt for the public opin
ion will be tolerated by the people.
We have long ago departed from the
beaten political path pursued success
fully by men of the Bailey type. The
people have a right to know who is
solicited for funds in the interests of
a party, and they have a right to know
the amount of each contribution. In
most States laws bearing upon this
very subject have been passed and
they have proved of wholesome ef
