The Springtield (Mass.) Republican,
one of the ablest Independent republi
can papers in the east, and which gave
McKinley Its hearty support in the
two last campaigns, has the follow
ing to say in regard to the present ad
ministration: "There can no longer be any quest Ii ,n
that the government has been strong
ly committed to the side of revenue
deficiency through incautious and ex
travagant management by the very
ones who in the presidential canvass
now progressing are claiming to lie the
only aggregation of persons iu the
country capable of conducting the
national alTalrs In a sane, conservative,
competent and economical manner.
What makes the matter worse for
them, In the light of this assumption
of superior gifts for administration, is
that the revenue deliciency arises from
no unforseen and radical shiinkagu in
tax receipts. It conies about from en
larged schemes of public expenditure,
cliieilyofa military character, which
were pursued in t lie very faie of fall
ing revenues, and with the complacent
regardlessness of undesirable possi
bilities which is common to men im
pressed with their own superior and
infallible genius. Nor is this the liist
time the republicans have blundered
In such a manner. They have been
repeating of late Just that course of
heedless extravagances in national ad-1
ministration which distinguished the
period around 1 !, and which pre
pared the way for the sorry linaneial
experiences that followed. And the
cause is the same in both cases -an
over-weening party self-conceit. It is
really to be questioned whether a
party distinguished for its disorgani
zation may not better be intrusted
with the administration of the gov
ernment at such a time as the present
than a party suffering from a swelled
1 1 A v k you seen one of the republican
campaign books for 1004? Well, it's a
dandy! It contains the greatest col
lection of polit ical lies ever placed le
fore the American people. It consists
of .ViO pages and produces more fables,
fairy tales, ghost stories and exagger
ations than are contained in Arabian
Nights, Aesops Fablesand Ha run Mun
chausen. Were the tales told in an
interesting way and had their various
authors (mainly government em
ployes) a better sense of humor, this
collection of republican falsehoods
might soon become one of the most
popular story books extant.
Nor many years since a certain

Sim k the nomination of W. E. Eos -

republican ring was heard to remark:
"Oh, he don't amount to much -he's

crans is highly respected by all classes
of people in his hoinetownof Elm wood
and surrounding country, where he has
lived for IS vears, ami where he has
accumulated as much pioperty as any
honest man could possibly accumulate
by hard work and good management,
in that length or time. That
he has managed his own business
so successfully is a sufficient guarantee
that Mr. Kusencrans is remarkably
well qualitled to look after the Inter
ests of people of Casscounty. Miscall
ing Is as honorable as that of any other
business, and perhaps much more so
than that of some previous to their
elevation to positions of trust and hon

that a pledge of independence to the

the Secretary to explain.
His An idkncy. in his letter of ac

are to continue the "government by

the last three years. Hut It will be
individualism enhanced, unchecked by
any obligation to consider either the
past or the future. In his references to
