Tho Pennsylvania republicans de
clared for an "honest ballot and a fair
count." . They did not say whore, but
it is evident they meant to say In tho
southern states. They certainly did
not moan in Philadelphia, or any
other part of Boss Quay's baliwlck.

The Tennessee republicans say:
"Realizing that capital is a creature of
labor wo favor tho equitable adjust
ment of both." Which is to say: "Re
alizing that the tail is but an attach
ment growing onto the dog, wo favor
an equitable adjustment whereby tho
tail and tho dog shall wag each oth
er." Tennessee republicans are very
bright. Memphis (Tenn.) News.
A correspondent asks: "What was
the most potont factor In defeating
Bryan in 1896." This is easy. Tho
most potent factor in Bryants dofoat
was that ho and the democratic party
had to bear tho stigma pf tho Grover
Cleveland administration. Had It not
been for that no amount or money or
intimidation or ballot box stufUng
could have defeated Bryan. -Joplln
There will bo rehabilitation of tho
democracy. As memory of tho period
from 1893 to 1897 fades, tho democ
racy's future becomes clearer and

party organization was at the helm!

"Wo can stand weak-kneed republi
cans in office, writes a Pittsburg dem
ocratic friend to the Democrat, "but
good Lord deliver us from democrats
of the McKinley stripe." Democrats
of tho McKinley stripe are really re
publicans. They have no sympathy
with democratic purposes and dem
ocratic Ideals make no appeal to them.
They aro "conservative." They be
lievo with Mr. Hanna in "letting well
enough alone." They think we can
acquire an honest title to distant Isl
ands by conquest and purchase. They
put the dollar before the man. Com
merce they exalt above conscience.
They tremble when wrong is assailed
