doubted if any of them staud on it or
will support tho Kausas City ticket
Governor Roosevelt is safo iu judging
the party by its platform aud not by the
acts or convictions of a fow who call
themselves democrats It would be just
as appropriate for tho republicans to
dodge tho oxpansiou issue by referring
thoir critics to Hoar Pettigrow and
others to provo that they are not expan

to evade their policy by pointing to thoi

Tho Times Tribune published yester

that while there were seveuteen now
j busiuess enterprises established there
were but niuo closed out and but oue or

failures tho large portion of them hav
iug removed to new locatious There
were 18 business ohanges proper where
all or part of the business was sold to

tho Times Tribune present a ratio nearly

conditions That it is not satisfied will
be proven by its editorial columns which

Perhaps Mr Bryan might win addi

names They were nice fellows as long

There is now no question but that
sentiment iu favor of the republicau
ticket aud republican policies is in the
lead and care should bo taken that it is
kept so Strong and vigorous clubs
should be organized nnd prepared to
meet the fusiouists at every turn Dis
cretion should also be used in method of
campaign so that those who have come
over to the right side may have no ex
cuse for changing their opinion Tact
is of great importance to campaigners
and should bo abundautly used There
is no question but that if election was
to be held tomorrow thoro would be
republican victory all along the line
Members of that party should not allow
a change of this condition

With America imperialism is im
possible Wo have been acquiring terri
tory ever since tho government was
founded yet this is not nu empire To
say that new territory added from time
to timo will bo followed by tho acclama
tion of an emperor to rule over us is ab
surd Bryau may deceive somo of tho
people by his far fetched cry of imper
ialism but tho scare will not of long
Tho greatest mistake Bryau over
mado was to require tho Kansas City
couvoution to roitorato tho 10 to 1 silver
freo coinage plauk He emphasized it
beyond nil others thus doing what the
republicans would have him do It will
cause Bryans defeat under heavier ma
jorities than were given four years ago
It was sheer idiocy Money was never

Prosperity everywhere in evidence can
not be talked down It may not be due
to McKinley but it is possible under the
policy for which McKinley stands
Imperialism in 18U8
The Decorah Iowa Republican has
discovered a striking similitude between
the utterances of the Kansas City con
vention and the one held by tho same
party iu 1803 just after the closo of tho
civil war History repeats itself aud
unfortunately for the democratic party
it has the failing attributed to history
That it is a bad habit espeilly for
parties is not to be denied as it has
frequently led to disastrous blunders
The following is the Republicans review
of the situation in 1SG3
Pendleton of Ohio had converted a
large body of democracys followers
into a craze for cheap money in the
form of an unlimited issue of green
backs It mattered not that when the
greenbacks were first issued as a war
necessity the copperhead end of tho
democratic party roso up en masse and
cried unconstitutional The green
back cry was a catchy one and Pendle
ton rode it aa Bryan has since ridden
freo silver because it appeared to be
popular and a winner
The national nominating conven
tiou of that year barely escaped making
Pendleton and his fallacy the sole issue
of tho campaign by nominating Horatio
Seymour ngaiust his very prononuced
refusal to accept Theu it was that
while placing the greenback fallacy
into the platform the effort was to make
another paramount issueby settiug
up tho bogy man of military despotism
More than half of the platform was
devoted to a cry of alarm amouutiug to
a wail at the unparalleled tyranny a id
oppression that had marked the career
of the radical party It was charged
that it had
subjected ten states in time of pro
found peace to military despotism and
negro supremacy
It has converted tho American capitol
into abastile
Under its repeated assaults the pillars
of tho government are rocking in their
base and should it succeed lu Novem
ber next and inaugurate its president
we will meet as a subject and conquered
people amid the ruins of liberty aud
the scatterod fragments of the constitu
It was also declared as tho solemn
opinion of tho democratic party that the
act of tho radicalparty
if sanctioued by tho people will sub
vert our form of government and can
only end iu a single centralized aud
consolidated government in which tho
separate existence of the states will bo
entirely absorbed and an unqualified
military despotism be established iu
place of federal uniou of co equal states
Iu spite of all this tremeudous dan
ger Graut was elected Jthe country
went on its way in reconstructing the
rebelliou states the peril of cheap mouoy
was avoided the fear of a military
despotism faded oilt in the face of
krauts declaration Let ns havo peace
aud the country began the career which
has siuco made us the greatest republio
of the world The pessiuiistio nonsense
about militarism aud imperialism has
just the reality aud no more that these
fears of au unqualified military despot
ism possessed iu 1803
univn nil rHTnroiirf nml mnM nil nnnnl lUU Allli
terms Mr Clark proposes ns oue of
tho Issues of debate That William J
Bryan Instead of being the greatest
American christian statesman ns you
said in a speech made iu Bohauaus hall
four years ago is what I then said ho
was ontyif tho greatest political frauds
that over figured in this country or any
other and to which I uow add that
ho Is politically or as a statesman an
ignoramus aud a snob Mr Clark puts
tho question lu pretty strong languago
which would not bo tolerated for a
moment from a republicaubut as ho is n
fellow citizen and of tho samo political
faith tojwhich Mr Bryan professes his
views will probably bo mot with somo
degree of tolerance by tho fusiouists
It is certain that Mr Bryans severest
