Our amiable democratic contemporary
eeoms to be deeply dliturbod becauso tho recent
republican got-togothor conclave was content
with hearing orators tell why factional differ
ences should bo sunk, and refrained from draw
ing up plans and specifications for an attack
upon tho rocord and policies of tho democratic
Administration. "It Is significant," it exclaims,
"that the record of President Wilson and a dem
ocratic congress was so gingerly criticised. It
Is significant becauso the reason for lack of de
tailed and outspoken criticism has a direct
bearing on tho npproaching campaign."
Our democratic friends should not be so im
patient, for their fondest expectations, or,
rather, their most disquieting fears, will all bo
met In due time. The campaign is young yet,
and congress in still in session, with tho larger
part of the democratic program yet to bo com
pleted. Tho first chapter of the record, tho
democratic tariff, tho republicans will gladly
toko Issuo on, and for tho second and third
chapters, tho currency bill and ropcal of tolls
exomptlon, they will find plenty of ammunition
furnished ready to hand by democratic critics.
It is poselblo that beforo wo are through not
evon tho domocrats, themselves, will defend
"watchful waiting" In Mexico, and tho anti
trust bills aro only beginning to emerge.
So wo say to our prematurely excited dem
ocratic friends, Be moro patient. As soon as
tho issues aro fully drawn, and tho tlckots nom
inated and tho campaign duly openod, thoro
will bo no room to complain of "gingerly" crit
icism of democratic mlsgovemment.

muddled some of his opinions as such methods of

be regretted since the particular branch of the prop

by their suffrage ravings, hod broken up peace In

"General" Jones' bright eyes flashed for an Instant,
and, pounding tha table with her fist, she replied:
"Right here and now I challenge Henry watterson
to a debate on equal suffrage, to be held on the St.

hero and debate with me, he will help us win the
vote for Missouri."
"It Is such a pity. 'Marse Henry' Is wasting all
of that brilliant oratory of his around old New

Noting that tho word "Home" affects some of
our would-be-gentlemen lady friends as water af

In one or two matters of fact. 8he may have

cucpapers. "Old timers," Interposes tho St Louts
Republic "will recall that Henry Watterson, when
acting as chairman of a democratic national con

rules of parliamentary practice and compelled the
delegates to listen to a speech by a woman. He
knew ho was wrong, but, being a southern gentle
man and a Kentucky colonel rolled Into one, he
simply could not refuse the fair orator, and he would
not have refused, as wo verily believe, If he knew
that he was about to wreck the party, bring on a
forcian Invasion, or stop the publication of tho
Courier-Journal. Remembering this Incident and
considering the chivalrous Instincts of tho colonel,

to debate the suffrage question hurled at him by
General Roeallo Jones. It uurely puts him In a
