that If. tho. Democrats were given tho'

than C2 years old pensions and would havo
tho order mado a law, ratified by a Demo

. It was at this moment that Col. Witcher,
a retired United States army paymaster,
Interpolated his dramatic interruption.
The crowd gasped, and then several raised

waved his hand for sllpnoo and asked Mr.

Said n, Democrat a former member of
tho National Democratic committee: "I
believe it-will bo better for the country
that Roosevelt be elected. Somehow I
feel that If Parke Is elected he will give
an administration practically tho same
as Cleveland's, and I do not want any
more of that Iklnd, do you?"

A few bets have been made ut one to
three that John C. Cutler will bo de
feated. , Attorney Largent mentioned three well
known citizen's as leaders qf tho Amcrj

tempt. When It will bo remembered that At

as Fus3y Jimmy, Ed Callis.tcr and Bill

regard for tneetcrhnl fitness of things.
A. J. Scare, whom tho Democrats nomi
nated for County Clerk, has resigned his,
position at Dinwoodey's and will give his

Nevr. Yorker Speaks in. Denver,, but

DENVER, Oct. 2L-W. Bourke Cockran
of 2?ew York, addressed an audience that
taxed tho capacity pf Coliseum. .hall hero
tonight. Ho devoted considerable llmo
to a discussion of local Issuos. resulting
from the strlko of metalliferous minora
Ho declared that In Colorado republican
Institutions had porlshcd and that those
of the Nation were Imperiled. Ho wati
ready to admit that, jerhaps, an attempt
hud. been made to, maintain order In this
State, but' uy subversion of the' law in
stead of by Its enforcement.
Mr. .. Cockran also - dlsousscd protection
and. trusts. . He- said the Republicans
claimed nil tho crudlt for the prosperity
of the country. If this claim was well
founded, he said, he ahpuld bo wining
to continue them in -poWe'r. But the peo
ple were not enjoying a remnant of tho
prosperity they wcro entitled to, because
thoy wero being plundered and robbed b
a vicious tariff system which enriched a
few and Improvcrlshed tho masses. Ho
denied that wages wcro kept at a high
standard through protecflon. Tho con
trary was true, for tho reason that pro
duction was limited. Twenty-five per cent
Of the wnge.8 of labor, he declared, went
as a tribute to protection. Trusts were
the outcome of tho tariff of 1600. he said.
The purpose of trusts was to enable a
few to sccuro all the.prpflts of indus
try. ' ,
Mr, Cockran's coming to Denver' was
