As to rurUlcation.
We venture the assertion that
nine tenths of those Democrats
who have been suddenly seized
with a desire to "purify" the party
ore men who rarely, if ever, go
near a convention. The proper
place for them to begin the work
of purification is in the precinct
meetings or county con cations.
State Conventions will brail right
when you purify the county con

tlio latter is for the best people to

BOOMS MILES F0H l'KKSIDKNT.
Gen. Nelson A. Miles is prom
Ised a nomination for President of
the United States. Levi F. Cook,
of Sotnerville, Mass., seems to be
the mainspring of the movement
up to date. Just who he is and
"how much Ice ho cuts" remains a
matter of surmise.
Mr. Gook has been sending circulars
to Congressmen and others
well acquainted in Washington.
Hih communication sets forth that
a meeting will be held soon time
and place not mentioned for the
purpose of putting Gen. Miles
forward as a candidate for Presi
dent. It is proposed that the
Miles movement shall be made
one of "patriotism."
FUTU1CK OF CUBA.
Looking at it from this point ol
view, every Cuban patriot who do
sires the best interests of his country
to be paramount wishes for
annexation to the United States
if it will take us as a State; if not,
to let ue be a territory for the
next twenty years or so while our
young men are being educated to
all the forms of a free and enlightened
government. We do not believe
that the United States for
one moment would desire to make
the Island of Cuba a State in the
Union until she has gone through
a period of enlightening prnba
tlon, bat we feel that sooner or
later annexation, in one shape,
form or kind, must he tho ultimate
destiny of this fair island. La
