Abraham Lincoln was America's

"'" teii Ul-trlct Attorney, there
I no reason to doubt that a acnncy
in that Important position has been
and Is now anticipated.
The man to fill this position should
ham the same general strong Amer
ican eharntter that is looked for In
the man to properly 1111 the post of
Lulled Btates District Judge. He
should know American law, of course
I In should be able to appreciate the
dignity of his position. He should
be n. thorough Aemrlc.in n republi
can, a believer In republican Institu
tions ns opposed to tho luounrchlst.

The most striking part of the con

declaration: "Ah icpicEeiitntlvcs o(

censes of all retail liquor dealeis who
vIolatH tho law he looked.
It is (onceded by all that the pow
