According to Joe Jobnaon, Ilolcomb
ia responsible for all the republican
stealing for the last ton years. He did
not make Joe Hartley set better bonda
than be did hi first term. We are not
told who approved Joe a first bonds.
All the stealing may have been done the
first term. Neither are we told wno ap
proved Cap Hill s bond or who approved
Moaner's bond. Tbey got away with
half aa much money a Hartley did.
Though I suppose it all happened be
cause ilolcomb was going too gov
ernor. If Johnson keep on and grow
it won't be six weeka before be will
ewear that it was Ilolcomb who killed
Lincoln and OurHeld.
We read every morning that the eoul

and factory men are going into a uulou

will bave to do as muub for them as they
have for corporations, and millionaires

"Every intelligent voter knows that if
the first mayor of tbe Greater New York
is the candilute of this convention a
mighty impulse will be given in support
of every sound principle of government.
"Every intelligent voter knows, on the

Greater New York is a Tammany demo

the hopes and promote the schemes tbat
are grouped in the public mind under tbe
name of Bryanism, and at tbe same
time to deliver this magnificent metrop

"We indorse the St. Louis platform.
We bulieve that it neede the support of
the Intelligent and patriotic people of
New York as much today as it did one
year ago. It is not only the cause of
sound money. It is pre-eminently tbe
cause of social order. Every vote cast

A TRANSPARENT SCHEME.
Ths Opposition of th Sugar Trust to
Hawaiian Annexation Is Msrs
The claim that the sugar trust I op
posed to tbe annexation ol Hawaii will
provoke a smile. Tbe allegod opposi
tion of the tugar trust to Hawaiian an
nexation I about tbe moat transparent
scheme tbat ha been planned during re
cent year. What the sugar trust I
most Interested in I free raw augar and
a heavy duty on the refined article, and
it ha just those thing under the Ding
ley law, or a near a it want. A our
relation with Hawaii now exist the
sugar trust ha by far the bost of it, and
it has no reason to take any hand in the
annexation scheme unless it ia to favor
annexation. Tbat would give it a
slightly better chance to gouge American
consumer of sugar.
But the scheme of the annexationist
i to make the people believe that the
sugar trust oppose annexation and
thus play tbe prejudice of tboae who
are opposed to trusts. If the sugar
trust oppose annexation, argue th
annexationists, the people will at onoe
conclude that tbe present arrangement
is good for the augar trust and annexa
tion bad, therefore thoy will take ad
vantage ol an opportunity to give the
trust a blow and demand annexation.
But tbe sugar trust I not opposed to
annexation. It rather favors it, but to
reward those who nave tbe sugar trust
everything it asked for in the way ol leg
islation it will do anything tney demand,
and lust now there is a jrlirantlo political
deal on foot to annex Hawaii. There is
no more reason lor annexing Hawaii
than there I for annexing Samoa or
Haytl. It is foreiarn to American polioy
and baa been opposed by tbe wisest
statesmen of tbe nation, mat were is
a corrupt deal on foot I evidenced by
the fact tbat the augar trust naa been
called upon to take a band in tbe game.
