MR. HILL'S PHRASE.
4;ovenor H 1111 of New York, man
aes to get himself freely talked about
whenever he goes on his travels. Near
ly three years ago, when Mr. Cleveland
was pnsidelt,. the governor of Ne*w
York gained a good deai of notoriety
out of a spxech in wh'ch. while refer
ring to unatioanal politics, he took occa
slol to say, "I am a densuerat," with
strong emphasis onl tine personal pro
noun. Ilia address of 1n7 in rI:oklysn
was construed as as effort to array his
followers against the national demo
cratic admlnistrtilon. 4hrn another

The other dany in hls Atlanta speech
the t ovennar remarked that he would
not make any Comment on the re

he had not brought lain encyclopedia
with him; and this was very promptly
construed as a thrust at Mr. C'leveland
and the speeches hIe made on the occa
lion of his swing tlmroug. the circle of
the We't and Mouth. Thereupon some
of the newspapers inslasted that Mr.
111i's remark was altogether thought
less. that tno gractle, rElkection on Mr.

occasion was altogether informal. Ihat

tained the encyclopedie reerence. This
leaves Mr. Hill's defelnders to frame
excuses for his motives and to ilsist
that the remark he made is simply a
bit of good-natured sarcannm to which
