DEATH OF HON.

The Ex-Governor Made a
Brave Fignt for Life
—Laid to Rest
Itobcrt E. Pattison, twice Gover
niir of Pennsylvania, and the only
Pennsylvania!! of recent years seri

possibility, died Monday morning at
li. 2~> o'clock.
The end came after a prolonged
struggle, in which the distinguished
patient's firm will and reserve vital
ity prevailed against death long after
the attending physicians had aban
doned hope. Early on Sunday Mr.
Pattison's illness, pneumonia, ag
gravated by a heart affection, took
a sudden turn for the wors<, but,
with characteristic cuergy, he rallied
from a scries of relapses until his
strength was completely spent.
The funeral took place yesterday
(Thursday) at 11 o'clock. Services
were conducted at the family resid
ence, Ovcrbrook, by Bishop Neely
and Kev. <i. \V. Izer, pastor of the
Methodist Episcopal Church of the
Covenant, Eighteenth and Spruce
streets, in which Mr. Pattison at
tended. The funeral was private ami
of a simple character.
News of ex-Governor Pattison's
death came as a great shock. Only
his most intimate friends hail known
of his illness, and even they had no
knowledge of its seriousness. Tele
grams of condolence poured in from
all parts of the State, ami the family
received others from distant points.
Among the first received was one from
Judge Alton 15. Parker, Democratic
candidate for President, He express
ed profound regret and extended a
message of condolence to the widow
and family. Another was received
from George W. Guthrie, who was
Mr. Pattison's mate on the Demo

Special Correspondence to the Intelligence
by Charles A. Edwards.
It is the consensus of opinion in :lu
national capital that in the linc-u(
for battle between the two parties,
the Democracy has the best of tin
situation. It is believed here by the
leaders of the party who have visited
Washington since the convention in
St. Louis that the outcome of the
convention has practically solidified
the Democratic party in this country.
It looked for a time in St. Louis that
no power on earth could ever bring
the two warring factions together.
Hut conciliation ami compromise on
both sides and the splendid attitude
of Mr. Bryan and his lenders have
performed a political miracle and the
old Democratic party is once more a
solid phalanx and will move in serri
ed ranks on the cohorts of corruption
and extravagance in the Republican
party. There are divergent opinions
here concerning the telegram sent by
•lodge Parker to the convention, but
the majority of Democratic leaders be
lieve that it has had more of a bene-
I licinl effect than otherwise. While,
of course, Judge Parker did not mean
literally that the gold standard was
"irrevocably established," yet it prac
ticaly is so until gold becomes so cheap
I that men who are now gold men will
seek to demonetize it. So long as
I present conditions obtain the gold
standard will remain fixed and noth
ing can disturb it. When, however,
the per capita of real or basic curren
cy becomes less than it is now, there
will be more clamor for the double
standard and the money question will
become once more a paramount issue
in our politics. There are some peo
ple who criticize Mr. Bryan for his
action in criticizing Judge Parke."
and portions of the platform since the
convention adjourned. But the truth
ol the matter is that Mr. liryan has
done more, to help the ticket and hold
his forces together for it than any one
man in the country. If lie had" laid
down immediately after the conven
tion and accepted fully and entirely
everything that was done, hundreds
of thousands of his followers in the
past two campaigns would have be
come angered at him, would have de
clared him insincere and dishonest,
and would have bolted the ticket.
When he was honest enough, how
ever, to criticize the things in Judge
Parker that he did not like and things
distasteful to him in the platform,
while at the same time he proclaimed
that there was enough Democracy in
the platform to warrant his entire
support, his friends knew him to be
honest and agreed that if their old
leader could thus support the ticket,
they, too, could make the same criti
cisms and give it their undivided sup
port. The friends of Judge Parker
who know him best say that he will
appreciate this fact as thoroughly as
any man, and that it is his intention
and the intention of the leaders to
give to Mr. Bryan some of the heavi
est tasks of the campaign. One of
those tasks will be to carry the State
of Nebraska, and, if succeeds in doing
this, in which they will render him
valuable assistance, lie can not only
goto the Senate of the United States,
but will be one of the biggest men in
the Parker administration. It augurs
well for our ticket that instead of all
the enthusiasm for it being exhausted
at the time of its naming, it has
grown day by day since the adjourn
ment of the convention. It is pro
gressive in public favor instead of re
trogressive. The only possible discord
in sight at this timc|within the Demo
cratic ranks is tile fight in New York
City bctweeu MeOarren and Tam
many Hall. It is believed, however,
that Judge Parker is a good enough
politician to send for Mr. Murphy
and placate him by giving him all ho
asks, thus guaranteeing the biggest
Democratic majority ever cast for any
Presidential candidate in Greater New
York. With that fight off our hands,
it gives us every chance of carrying
the State of New York and with it
will go Connecticut, New Jersey, and
Delaware. The nomination of Davis
gives us West Virginia, beyond all
doubt. The negro question assures
us Maryland, and with either Illinois,
Wisconsin, or Indiana, we will win
the fight. It looks as though Wis
consin were absolutely assured to us
on account of the factional fight in "
that State between the Republicans,
and with Tom Taggart of Indiana
for National Chairman, we are assur
ed of that State.
* * *
There arc many words of praise
here from leaders ot the party for the
Hon. William Randolph Hearst.
His action in wiring the convention
of his loyalty to the ticket and his
congratulations to Judge Parker have
caused many men who hitherto were
his bitterest enemies to speak words
of praise in his behalf. There is no
doubt that his eight great newspapers
will do great and effective work in
this campaign. The Democratic party
needs Mr. llearst more than he needs 1
it, and he has grown much in politi
cal stature by proving that he does ■
not have to be bribed with the nomi- i
nation, in order to remain a Demo- i
* * *
The leaders of the Democratic party
are looking forward, not with appre
hension, but with pleasurable antici
pation, to Judge I'arker's letter of
acceptance. A ringing letter of ac
ceptance, able and conservative, would
strike a popular chord and give his
campaign a futhcr impetus. More
may hinge on what that letter says
and how it is said than ou any amount
of the thousands of documents thut
may appear in the campaign. That
lettlcr will decide many men now
wavering between the two candidates
and the chauces are that it will bring
them to the support of Judge Parker,
and the Democracy. The South is
entusiastic for Judge Parker and
would lie so if there were but one
issue in the campaign. To them, the
all-absorbing and over-powering issue
is the negro question and they are
anxious l'or the defeat of Roosevelt ou
account of that issue, if for no other
reason. A recent communication to
the Washington Post by a. negro
named Henry 8. Baker serves to ac
centuate the negro issue more than
| anything tiiat luis lately appeared. In
> that conimunicatinu, he culls at tril
lion to the difference between the Ke
■ publican ami the Democratic National
Convention?. He says that at the
! Republican Convention the colored
' luun was treated as a companion,
friend, and brother; that there he was
made to feel as though he were not
ouly a political, but social e<junl; that
the delegates followed the advice and
example of President Roosevelt, who
teaches that the colored mail deserves
to be treated as a social equal. He
says that to emphasize this fact, he
had the cournge to have at his table.
Prof. Booker T. Washington, and
that, if Roosevelt is elected, it will so
encourage the negro men that they
will demand that Booker Washington
shall be the Republican candidate for
Vice-Presideut in 1908. He calls at
tention to the scene in the Republican
Convention, when a beautiful white
girl was placed upon the stage and by
her side a negro boy, and that they
led the cheering, thus making an ex
ample of the equality of the races.
He then points out that the Demo
cratic Convention was a white mau's
convention, of a white man's party,
and that in it, there was not a single
negro man. Talk like that will do
more to make the race question oneot
the leading issues of this campaign
than anythiug else that could be sug
gested. There are many doubtful
States in the North that will give to
the Democrats sufficient Republican
votes upon the negro question alone
to send them into the Democratic
column. The chances are therefore
that the Democrats will force this
issue whenever they can.
* * *
Of course, it goes without saying
that if the Democrats win the Presi
dency, they will also win the House,
lwcnuse no President was ever elected
who did not carry the House with
him. Specifically, the Democrats are
counting upon gains in the next House
iu Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, lu
diana, Ohio, West Virginia, Vingin
ia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, and possibly Connecticut and
Rhode Island. Iu the A Vest, they
will probably elect their Congressmen
or a majority of them in Colorado—
also their Representatives in Montana
and Idaho—possibly Wyoming and
possibly make gains in California,
There is a possibility of the House
going Democratic with a Republican
victory for President. Hut it is not
probable, inasmuch as all precedent is
against it. The Republicans admit
this quietly. They also admit that
the chances of Judge Parker's elec
tion are growing greater every day.
There is really 110 doubt of Judge
Parker's election, if the Democrats of
this country, who lielieve iu Demo
cratic principles instead of trust dom
ination nml the reign of an aristo
cracy, will stand shoulder to shoulder
for the Democratic ticket. Tlub, the
leaders of the party believe will hap
pen and they are far more encouraged
than I have seen them since 1892.
* * *
Of course, every man who attended
the great Democrat Convention in St.
Louis took in the latest and greatest
of all the world's expositions ever
held. The great St. Louis Exposi
tion in its entirety can not he describ
ed. It has to lie seen to lie appreciated.
It is iiot only larger and greater iu
area, hut the buildings are more
beautiful iu design and finish, and
the exhibits more comprehensive than
any exposition ever held. The Philip
pine Village iu itself will take two
days to fully explore the interesting
things there to behold, and the won
derful "Pike," especially at night,
wheu it is one glittering, glaring mass
of electric lights, is worth goiug many
hundreds of miles to see. The at
tractions there can be seen for a little
money and there seems to be no at
tempt to gouge visitors on the part of
the exhibitors. I talked to many
people there who have seen all the
world's expositions since the centen
nial ill 1870, and they say that noth
ing has ever compared favorably with
the St. Louis Exposition. It is a
liberal education in itself and the op
portunity of a lifetime, and any one
who possibly can spare a few dollars
is doing himself a grave injustice not
to visit and witness this great aggre
gation of the world's progress aud
is a common complaint, very annoying
and often serious if the proper remedy
be not administered. The secretive
organs must be putin a thorough
working condition. If you would like

The Speed of Birds.
William W. Murphy, a locomotive
engineer ou the Burlington's fast ex.
press between Hannibal and St.
Joseph, has been making observations
on the speed of various birds and in
sects. Many birds, ho says, make a
practice of flying beside or in front of
his engine, and when the weather is
clear and there is no wind ho opens
the throttle and races with them.
Ho finds that a chicken hawk and a
crow can make twenty-five miles an
hour. A turkey buzzard flies at the
rate of twent-one miles an hour. The
pigeon is one of the fastest birds in
the United States. It makes a speed
of forty-six miles an hour with ease.
When chased by an oagle it can beat
the Burlington's St. Louis express.
The wild duck Is travelling at the
rate of forty-four miles an hour while
the huntei is pumping the contents
of a repeating gun at it. The black
bird, robin, dove and other small
birds travol at n speed of thirty-eight
miles an hour. The humming-bird
can aud does excel a speed of a mile
per minute. Murphy says that a
honey bee the other day tlew in and
out of MB c«b window while he was
going at the rate of sixty-three miles
an hour. The performance lasted
while the engine traveled half a
