I .crved ft faithfully until am! aficr" the
Civil War, and the logical results weiv
IK-rfcctly -afc after the War. It then
Mt'iucd to me that the time had come lor
taking other great problem in hand for
solution. It was nece--ary to secure for
the new order of things that favorable
public opinion which Is Itidl-pen-abli! by
a wl-e policy of conciliation. It was nc-ee-'ary
to 'strike down the spirit of ra
pacity" which aro-e during the War and
ihrea'tened to letrov the grand old in
stitutions of our (loverniiicnt. It wu-
necc arv to re-lore once more lo the
country a sound currency, apd to lighten
and regulate the burdens hanging over
the people from revenue and taxation.
That thee evils existed no one denied,
and no one denlei to-day. I fondly
hoiM-d that the nart v to which I belonired
would take then! problems in hand ami
deal with them. Hut you as well as I
know that thc.-o problems arc Mill un
solved, and Indeed retrograde niove
in.'tit.s have been made in some respects.'
An attempt, said the Sicakcr, wa
in ule hi W2 to take a middle course, but
it tailed. TUN si o i 1 not e tl-e ill-cuiir-

was like a man coming lo two roads and
a-KIng which he .-hall take, and a per-on
s.iylug to him : "Stranger, you may take
c'tlier, hut If you tin you w ill wl-h you
had t'lken the other." The Independent
votets werfiinlho main good cltlens
who wished to serve their parties by tho
best method-, nnd would not servo bar
gainer's. He was convinced that the mass
ot Independent voters were fining
enough lo give victory to either desiring
it. Tho Independent party wa
loo great to fritter Its power awav,
bill It was the duty of men who composed
it to use his power for thecommon good:
It was too early to advise If with regard
to the next Presidential election, hut in
itiatory ttcps should bo taken by the
iiien compo-lng It to bring its power lo -i
locus. Let it le by organization of com
mittees or otherwise, so that, when the
tlmo arrived, they could sav to tlm
parties "what the independent men
wanted. He believed that 5rv.1t good
could bo brought in this way, and what a
great blessing It would bo to have a full
grown statesman in tho Presidential
chair! Next year wo would celebrate,
tho oni'-hundredth anniversary of our In
dependence. Might It not only be known
as a year ol proud memories, but of strong
and independent action.
In conclusion, the speaker returned

Cortina and hi- banditti attacked the "la

but he, Pancho Uainl.cr, recovered, and
was hung subsequently as a desperado by
a vigilance committee 011 the American
side of the river. Defeated on that day,
Cortina continued to renew the attack,
until he drove Senor Tober away.
