Kingfisher (O. T.) noformor: Talk

like a mother strangling her own
Winona (Minn.) Leader: It is given
out now that Grover Cleveland would
not refuso tho democratic nomina

Frankfort (Ind.) Standard: Tho
monoy question, in some shape, has
'been tho thing that has most affected
'tho interests of tho people in tho past
and must continuo to bo one of tho
leading questions until eithor the gold
powor is in undisputod control or
until the people compel the govern
ment to exercise absolute control. Tho
money question is not settled; nor is
tho question settled which shall rule
the man or the dollar.
Chardon (O.) Record: What the
hermaphrodite is to physiology the
reorganlssers are politically; complex
agglomerates, ringed, streaked speck
led, spotted, neither ono thing nor
. tho other, as Uncle Eben remarked:
"Doy's nuthor pig nor pup!" They
protend to bo lemocratg even as Judas
protended loyalty to the Master when
Imparting tho hypocritical kiss. They
go to Wall street for orders and to
the trust presses for plaudi's, and
whilo ranting of harmony they cease
not raising the other thing at every
opportunity. Juuas haiiged himself,

notwithstanding tho great hullabaloo

, not a war of conquest on the part of
tho United States, it was waged In
bohalf of tho cause of humanity to
free Cubans from intolerab.e condi
tions. And that done we hauled down
the flag and got out. This country has
kept faith with Cuba, but wo have

Albert Lea (Minn.) Standard: Ev
ery plank'of the Kansas City platform
is as sound today as it was in 1000.
"Will it pay" to stand by it? Shame,
Oh, shamo on such truckling.
Cameron (Mo.) Sun: ; Tho Grant

democratic narty?"That's easy: it's to

Maryville (Mo.) Forum': Tho para
mount issue of democracy is tho re
storation of the rights of the many;
to make this a nation not. where com
merce rules and Mammon reigns, but
where ovory industry, either the fac
tory or tho farm, has a fair and equal
chance and thrives not because It is a
pampered industry at tho expense of
tho people, but stands .on the firm
basis of rich resources and intelligent
Steuben villo (O.) Gazette: Big
headed schemers may scheme to their
hearts' content, but they can neither
manage nor boss the democratic par
ty. The 6,000,000 men who have been
gladly supporting Jeffer?omanJsm the
past seven years are not'going to turn
their party over to the republicauizers.
A fev purchaseaLle metropolitan pa
pers and a handful of easy-virtue poli
ticians are no more to the democratic
party than one swallow Is to a sum
mer. Gallatin (Tenn.) Tonnesseean: The
Tennosseoan is no prophet, but it here
makes the prediction that, if the next
national democratic convention un
der the leadership of certain men and
the lashings of certain newspapers
sees proper to turn its back upon the
underlying and fundamental ideas and
the spirit of tho two last platforms of
the party, and to slap In the face the
millions who enthusiastically sup
ported them, the party will go down
in the most disastrous defeat known
to its history, and one it will not
recovor from in a decade.
Portsmouth (N. H.) Times: Some
or the papers are reviving -.hat old
charge that Bryan bolted the demo
cratic ticket in 1892 and cast his vote
for Weaver. The simple fact is that
the democrats of Nebraska generally
voted for the populist electoral ticket

Bridgeport (Conn.) Star: If by "get
together" is meant that he democracy
that votes for democrats shall throw
up the sponge of the democracy that
votes for republicans, then there won't
bo no getting together. Put that in
your cob-pipe and smoke it!
Malone (N. Y.) Forum: The "any
thing to win" democrats would turn
the party backward on tho road to
progress and substitute the promise
of participation in party spoils for a
surrender of principles. Expediency
is a mockery, delusion and a snare.
That which was right in 1896 was still
light in 1900 and will be right when
the campaign of 1904 is in progress.
Reactionary policies never yet won a
battle for right and justice and can't
win this year. The sturdy democracy
of the land will not be duped into
making an alliance with monopoly for
the sake of winning a so-called victory
that would really be a defeat.
Bound Brook (N. J.) Record: The
year just closed gave the peoplo a lib
eral education on the trust question.
The coal trust has taught them what
a law-defying monopoly can do in the
way of oppression, and the shipbuild
ing trust's downfall has opened their
ej es to the methods by which practi
tioners of "high finance" pocket mil
lions without returning an equiva
lent. The people have learned, also,
that there need be no expectation
that the trusts will be molested by
the hand of the law while the party of
the trusts remains in power. .This
3 ear, 1904, the people will havo an op
portunity to make use of their educa
tion at tho polls.
Pontiac (111.) Observer: The recent
meeting of the democratic state cen
tral committee demonstrated the fact
that the few so-called democrats who
left the party in 1896 are attempting
to get control of the party under the
specious plea of harmony. The put
ting forward of Eckles to address the
democrats was an insult to all who
voted the ticket since 1892. He was
not only a bolter, but an out and out
republican supporter, and should not
be considered or honwi t ,ji..
SL?r5 alono ?iciatS and
r , T& uo 4"cy or tne party.
Relegate such men as Eckles to the
rear and let men who have supported
Sn pay hrouS thick and ihm do
the dictating. No self-respecting
democrat will for a moment listen
with patience to such harmony
speeches. Better let republicans con-
f.fd?nt0f!'ule tuan t0 nave such men
guiding the party.
