TO AMERICAN PARENTS.
In the trust problem lurk troubles '
.or the American people which aro '

tnect of the question will appeal with
peculiar force to the commercial trael

prepared, but every American parent

pendence of manhood in the United
States. Mr. Gryan might well ask
fathers and mothers whether they are

It Is plainly evident that there has of
late been a marked strengthening of
Democratic fccntlmout lu the East and
that this trend toward Democrat- is In
creasing day by day. U is due to the
prevailing conviction that the issue o
Imperialism must be settled once Tor all
in November of VJW by the prompt re
moval from power of tbe parly which
has surrendered to the temptation of
Empire. This duty is accepted as the
paramount American duty of the hour.
Its performance must take precedence

that the callcry wis ulilslllng It before tha

Mr. Timothy Murphy has done the very

pUIon, when it waa announced that "A

On the other hand, he is presenting' un en

told the printers to make his last nam?

change tha opening of his ilnt name to
