at sea on the llnauclal tpiesilon as
the Democrats. In our own Statu they
declare for hard money, and In another,
Indulge In I'uUouie praNo of a paper cur
rency. At Toledo a few days ago, a He
publican convention declared Governor
Hayes the man for President, and at the
same tlino denounced the bulllonists,
protested against contraction and
demanded the repeal of Hut resump

appearance when viewed! u the light
of the fact that Governor Hayes
is a bulliowl.t, a coutractionlst, and a re
