sembled in Hint city and at the
closo of tlio meeting sixty-five
now names woro added to tho
Bryan club. Tho gold bugs
should send Mr. Cady back to
Crawford to "counteract" tho,
work of tho "anarchist."
Mr. Cady will speak at Alliance
to-morrow ovening and it is safe
to say that the "sound money
club" will not have a mooting in
order to keep the railway men
from hearing Cady. It is singular
that when a silver man speaks in

or "R. R. men's sound money
club" must have a meeting and
request all members, especially
tho Bryan men to bo present.

McKiuloy was elected they would
invest more in Edgomont and thus
improve tho city," to which Mayor
Sharrock replied "Edgomont will
go right along just tho baiuo if Mc
Kinley was dead; I have always
been a republican but I cannot
stay with tho part' this year."
The Guide says that "Mr.
Smytho stated in his speech that

100 cents and that freo silver
would bring prosperity, but ho
failed to show how" and that "the
audience was made up of a large
number who take no stock what
ever in tho lGto 1 heresy." Bro.
Paradis if you had "stnid it out"
you would have been "shown
how" and judging from the
amount of laughter and clapping
of hands when you left the hall,
tho audience was composed en
tirely of those who believe in
tho "16 to 1 heresy."
L. B. Fenner received a letter
this week from Rev. J. M. Crocker,
his uuc le, who is Chaplain of the
Anamosa Iowa Penitentiary. Mr.
Fenner never thought of Mr.

ual for a republican state official to
to do so) but tho following extract
from his letter shows whore he

"The CHICAGO RECORD is a model
newspaper in every sense of the word,"
Harrlsburg (Pa.) Call.
"There is no paper published in America
that so nearly approaches the true-journalistic
Ideal as The CHICAGO RECORD."
From "Newspaperdom" New York).
"I have come to the firm conclusion, after
a long test and after a wide comparison
with the journals of many cities and coun
tries, that The CHICAGO RECORD comes
as near being the ideal daily journal as we
are for some time likely to find on these
mortal shores." Prof. J. T. Hatfield in
the Evanston III.) Index.
