The material, moral and intellectual progress of the people of Porto Rico and tho Philippines under American administration is more rapid and substantial than that ever accomplished by any people under similar circumstances. The work of American school teachers, of whom Indiana has furnished more than its quota, is already bearing fruii, and those peoples are also learning modern methods of industry, and for the first time in their history, living under an orderly government of equal laws impartially enforced, while their foreign coinmerce has increased many fold.

Kansas.-We condemn the desecration of the sacredness of Memorial Day set aside by law and sentimentally dedicated to memorial exercises commemorative of the lives, services and sacrifices of our patriotic and heroic dead and pledge our party to the enactment of a law punishing offenders for any desecration of that sacred occasion.

We earnestly indorse the policy of the national Government in the reclamation of the arid and semi-arid land areas of the country by means of irrigation, and request our representatives in Congress to labor diligently for the extension of this beneficent work as rapidly as possible to the end that new homes may be provided for millions of people and the wealth of the nation vastly increased.

Maine-We are in favor of the initiative and referendum as applied to statutes and recommend a constitutional amendment to so provide.

Massachusetts.-We place upon record our sincerest sympathy with the suffering and outraged Jews in Poland and Russia, although with a sense of profound humiliation that our own garments are not free from the innocent blood of Americans of African descent.

The Democratic State Conventions of Alabama, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New YorkOhio and Wisconsin; and the Republican State Conventions of Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota passed resolutions favoring the election of United States Senators by the direct vote of the people,

The California Republican State Convention favored woman suffrage.

William J. Bryan was indorsed for the next presidency by the Democratic State Conventions of the following States: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin. The Massachusetts and New York resolutions were as follows:

Massachusetts.--The democracy of Massachusetts is proud to swell the note of praise for the distinguished Nebraskan Democrat, America's great commoner. whose moral leadership has been of world-wide influence and whose voice has been raised for the uplifting of hunanity in every land, whose nomination by our party for the highest office in the nation's gift was proof of our party's wisdom, and whose defeats only endeared him the more to the democracy which admired him for all that it cost him to be right. While William Jennings Bryan lives we shall not want for an exemplar of all that is best and truest in democracy.

New York.-In common with the Democrats of all the States and expressing the sentiment of the highminded citizenship of the republic without reference to party, we view with pride and satisfaction the hospitality and acclaim which have been accorded

home and abroad to that great Democratic leader and typical American, William Jennings Bryan, to whom the Democrats of New York extend most cordial and sincere felicitations,

The Presidential Election of 1908.


THE next Presidential election will take place on Tuesday, November 3, 1908.

The President and Vice-President of the United States are chosen by officials termed "Electors' in each State, who are, under existing State laws, chosen by the qualified voters thereof by ballot, on the first Tuesday after the tirst Monday of November in every fourth year preceding

the year in which the Presidential term expires.

The Constitution of the United States prescribes that each State shall "appoint,"' in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a number of electors equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in Congress; but no Senator or Representative or person holding an office of trust or profit under the United States shall be an elector. The Constitution requires that the day when electors are chosen shall be the same throughout the United States. At the beginning of our Government most of the electors were chosen by the Legislatures of their respective States, the people having no direct participation in their choice; and one State, South Carolina, continued that practice down to the breaking out of the Civil War. But in all the States now the electors are, under the direction of State laws, chosen by the people on a general State ticket.

The manner in which the chosen electors meet and ballot for a President and Vice-President of the United States is provided for in Article XII. of the Constitution, and is as follows:

The electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same State with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President; and they shall make distinct sists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit, sealed, to the seat of government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate.

The same article then prescribes the mode in which the Congress shall count the ballots of the electors, and announce the result thereof, which is as follows:

The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates, and the votes shall then be counted; the person having the greatest number of votes for President shall be President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers, pot exceeding three, on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President the votes shall be taken by States, the representation from each State having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the States, and majority of all the States shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President, whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President. The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed ; and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice.

The procedure of the two houses, in case the returns of the election of electors from any State are disputed, is provided in the "Electoral Count'' act, passed by the Forty-ninth Congress. The act directs that the Presidential electors shall meet and give their votes on the second Monday in January next following their election. It fixes the time when Congress shall be in session to count the ballots as the second Wednesday in February succeeding the meeting of the electors.

The Constitution also defines who is eligible for President of the United States, as follows:

No person except a natural-born citizen or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this Constitution shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years. The qualifications for Vice-President are the same.

Were Arizona and New Mexico to be admitted as the State of Arizona before 1908, the new State would have four electoral votes. In that case the total number of electoral votes at the Presidential election of 1908 would be 487, and the number necessary to a choice 244. Arizona having at the election in 1906 rejected the joint statehood act of Congress, the admission of the new State will probably be delayed beyond 1908 and possibly for many years,

Presidential Elections


DENT AND VICE-PRESIDENT AT EACH ELECTION. Note. There is, properly speaking, no popular vote for President and Vice-President; the people vote for electors, and those chosen in eich State ineet therein and vote for the candidates for President and Vice-President. The record of any popular vote for electors prior to 1824 is so meagre and imperfect that a compilation would be useless. In most of the States, for more than a quarter century following the establishment of the Government, the State Legislatures "appointed "the Presidential electors, and the people therefore voted only indirectly for them, their choice being expressed by their votes for members of the Legislature. In this tabulation only the aggregate electoral votes for candidates for President and Vice-President in the first nine quadrennial elections appear.

43 Rep... * Jackson called himself a South Carolinian and his biographer, Kendall, recorded his birthplace in Lancaster County, S. C., but Parton has published documentary evidence to show that Jackson was born in Union County, N. C., less than a quarter mile from the South Carolina line. † The Democratic party of to-day claims lineal descent from the first Republican party and President Jefferson as its founder. Political parties were disorganized at the time of the election of John Quincy Adams. He claimed to be a Republican, but his doctrines were decidedly Federalistic. The opposition to his Administration took the name of Democrats and elected Jackson President. More details of the lives of the Presidents were given in THE WORLD Almanac for 1902, pages 118 and 119.

The Presidential Succession. THE Presidential succession is fixed by chapter 4 of the acts of the Forty-ninth Congress, first session. In case of the removal, death, resignation, or inability of both the President and Vice-President, then the Secretary of State shall act as President until the disability of the President or Vice-President is removed or a President is elected. If there be no Secretary of State, then the Secretary of the Treasury will act; and the remainder of the order of succession is as follows: The Secretary of War, Attorney-General, Postmaster-General, Secretary of the Navy, and Secretary of the Interior. The Secretary of Agriculture and Secretary of Commerce and Labor were added by subsequent enactment. The acting President must, upon taking office, convene Congress, if not at the time in session, in extraordinary session, giving twenty days' notice. This act applies only to such Cabinet officers as shall have been confirmed by the Senate, and are eligible under the Constitution to the Presidency. Justices of the United States Supreme Court.
