Judge Hancroft, In a speech In
Cleveland, agBlnst universal suffrage,
concluded with thU peroration : "Mall,

age. Bless our stars, and may they
ever continue shining In their

his dictatorial qualities, simply laugh
at hia audacity.
Every democrat elected to the In
coming legislature has, or will have,
eyea opn to the scheming of Poul

before everything ebe, and why? Be
cause If he can get the democrats di
vided, and a bad feeling to eiist be
tween the county option and anti-op-
tlonlsts, the republicans will be able
to organize the house. The first duty
of democrats Is to organize the bouse,
select committees, etc., before any
thing elite Is done.

did not so consider It, then what ter
rible rumpus there would be. But
seriously, because Mr. Bryan Is re
cognized as the leader of the demo
cratic party of the state Is no reason
why "Brother Charley" should at
tempt to tell the democrats what "I
think," and attempt to dictate to
them. Had It not been for "Brother
Charley," Mr. Bryan would have
fared better and had more friends In
the state than he has now.
But since Charley has gone, no
doubt, the democrats will attempt to
worry along and perhaps organize
the legislature according to the plat"
form adopted at Grand Island, even
