worst load the party lias had to carry
has been Clevelandism. "Do you want
any more of Cleveland?" Is the cry of
tho g. o. p. spell-binders In every cam
paign. We do not. If Cleveland was
Uio nominee of both parties ho could
not bo elected.
Nebraska City (Neb.) News: A Chi
cago paper that has been active in
booming Cleveland for president a few
days ago received a setback that it
was not counting upon. This paper
sent out requests to all tho national
committeemen asking them to give
their opinion in regard to nominating
Cleveland in 1904, and the result was
that some half dozen favored his nom
ination, one or two were non-committal,
while the remainder said that
it would be suicidal to name him as
the standard-bearer. That is a fair
estimate of the case. Only a few want
Cleveland and those who favor him
admit that ho could not bo elected
should he receive the nomination. So
far as Cleveland is concerned the soon
er his name 13 dropped the better it
will be for the party,
Clifton (Intf.) Argus: The next
democratic platform will not mince
matters. It will not make two bites
of a cherry. It will point out the
source of plutocracy's power to rob
the people and demand its removal
from the statutes of the country and
will challenge the plutocracy to mor
tal combat And then it will place its
banner in the hands of a man who
knows the secrets of plutocracy who
knows his men and who will lead a
mighty host into a battle such as this
old world has never seen and it will
win and establish justice in this coun
try so that honest toil may enjoy the
product of its skill and legitimate cap
ital may be secure in investment and
enjoy its fruits free from the danger
of exploitation. The Cleveland propo
sition contains, no attraction for dem
ocrats. It is for the veterans of hu
manity'd war to go forward.
Chilton (Wis.) Times: The Times
regrets to see such an esteemed jour
nal as the Madison Democrat trying
tomake out a case for one G. Cleve
li.nd. Mr. Cleveland deserted democ
racy in the interest of Wall street It
is true that he stood 'squarely on tho
democratic platform of 1892, which
read4. "We denounce tho republican
legislation known as the Sherman act
of 3890 as a cowardly makeshift,
fraught with possibilities of danger in
the future, which should make all of
its supporters, as well as its author,
anyious for its speedy repeal." But
he forgot the teaching of not onlv
the democratic platform of 1892 and
"previous democratic platforms that
tcod out boldly for "hard money"
without discrimination. There wad
never a democratic platform promul
gated, since the birth of tho party up
to the present day, that has stood for
the "honest money" that the Wall
street syndicate is sponsor for. Give
the dear people a rest on Grover.
In Praise of Prosperity.
They raised his salary two years ago
The said increase amounting to thirty
cents a day;
Of carrots and of beets,
Of flour and of meats,
Of corn and coal and fruits,
"Of babies' little boots,
Of potatoes, milk and cheese,
, Of the product of the bees,
Ofhats and socks and coats,
Of all that sinks and floats.
He's paying out tho money that te
saved before his raise.
But prosperity's upon us, and hi3
heart is full of praise.
