these men refets to the other In pub

language; yet each professes to hold
the otiipr in such contempt as to scorn
to speak to him at all. A more Inter
esting example of the inconsistency of
blind pcrkona' anger would be hard to
find, and the followers of Altgeld and
of Harrison rage with their chieftains.
The Illinois Democracy despite Har

to the Chicago platform, "In whole and
In all paits,' Ip letter and In spirit."
