found many growlers, not one whom I
have met las svld that ho will not vote

N. B. Martin of Vernon County: "I am
a farmer mself, and 1 think I know what

telegram warrled some of us; but on
thinking it over, we've come to the con

. Edwards, Secretary of the Democratic
Congressional Campaign Committee, is in
dignant about a dispatch sent out from
Indianapolis last Friday purporting to
give an expression of his views on the ac
tion of the Democratic party in turning
from free silver.
The dispat-h in question stated that
Representative- Cowherd Of Missouri,
chairman -of the committee, and Secretar
Edwards both "were gnevounlv disap
pointed over the action of the nominee for
President In Injecting the gold .standard
in the platform " r
It went-on to say that Mr. Cowherd had
refrained from publicly expressing his
views, but Secretary Edwards declared
emphatically the night the party turned
from free silver to the gold standard that
it would be Impossible for the Democrats
to win the House of Representatives on
such a platform. Th" dispitch made ref
erence to Se-cretary Edwards. saIng tint
the latter was read to prvdict that sev
