To The NEWb: Tho peouliar cir
cumstances, and still moro peculiar
combinations burrounding tho speak
ership contest, by which JR. Q. Mills,
the great Demooratio leader of the
last Democratic house ot representa
tives was relegated to the rear, de
mands of all true Demoorats tbo most
earnest and profound consideration.
That a mau who was justly entitlod
to the high Lonor to which he aspired
by virtue of his long service, Ins emi
nent abilities, his matchless leader
ship and bis untiring zeal in behalf
of true Democraoy, and also by vir
tue oi his being nearest tho embodi
ment ot the real issues dividing tho
two great partien, should bo thrust
abide to make way for men whose
iealty to those issues does not go un
questioned, demands tho inot rigid
investigation at the hands' of the
Democratic party of this country.
True, tho house oi representatives
had an undoubted right to elect as
their speaker whom they would ilcot;
true, there mpy have been a hundred
Democrats in that body ennroly capa
ble of pcriorrning tber duties ot the
otlico ot speaker and tho chairman
ship of the committee ot wujs auu
means; but when wo examin'Utbe true
animus of this great contest, when the
light is turned upou the oombina
tious and political wiie works
used by the patties thereto, wo
easily discover that certain principles,
fully recognized by the partisans oi
eaoh contestant, cut a much moro im
portant figure iu determining the final
result, than did tho ability or popular
ity of either oi the candidates.
Upon tho two groat is-uos, TarifT
Reform and Free Silver Coinage, Mr.
Mills, more than any other man in or
out of congress, represented tho Dem
ocratio idea. Fearless in his scathing
denunciations ot the robbor tarifl'
bold, clear and outspoken in behalf ut
freo coinage, and with untiring zeal
and relentless energy continually
pushing 10 the front both thoso issues
because ho knew the people would
have it so, represented indeed tho
embodiment ot truo Democracy, as
sot forth in the last natioual platform
of tho party and its position upon
those ibbues during tho session of tho
List congress. Strango as it mus
appear, humiliating as must be the
confession, it whs because of those
very facts that Roger Q Mills, the
great Commoner, was thrust rudely
aside, and tbo leadership of the Demo
craoy in congress turned over to thoso
who represent nothing positive, noth
ing aggrcssne, nothing In fact but
unmeaning political platitudinism.
Mr. Crisp informs an astonished Dem
ocracy ibat tho cause of tariff reform
shall "tako no step backward." Does
he ell a halt? Whut doos ho mean?
Tho word ''backward" is not found
in tho vocabulary oi a Demo
oratio people. Fonoard, is tho
inspiring werd of true Democraoy.
And yot Mr. Grisp sht ul 1 be informed
that in setting aside the greatest
representative of reform in tariff and
in financo, and placing Mr. Springer

reason must distrust, opposed Mr.
Lobbyists, subsidiBts and every cor

Mr. Mills. Tho final vote
oi Mr. Springer, resulting in tho elec
tion of Crisp, and Springer's appoint
ment to tho chairmanship of the com-
mittco of ways and means, points
unorriucly to a bargain and sale.
Tho construction of tbo committees
by tho speaker shows conclusively
that tho same influences which elect
ed him were the coutrolling influences
in their formation.
Nor must it bo forgotten that Hill
was -'in it." Hill, whoso disloyalty
to tho Demooratio party in 1888, was
notorious, and who could bo mauipu
lato tho corrupt elements of his par
tisans then as to oauso himself to be
elected govornor while Cleveland was
defeated, used all his influence and
polilioal craft in favor of Crisp und
agaius. Mr. Mills. Just previous to
the eleotion of tpcakcr. Hill delivered
a speeoh at Elmira, New York, mani
festly to influenco the election of
Cnep, in which he managed to make
these three points most prominently
1. The Demooratio party of New
York (Tammanj) has sounded the
key nolo of the campaign for 1892.
2. Tho National Democraoy must
oarry New York in order ty win, and
must theroforo accept tho New York
(Tammany) key note in 1892.
3 D. B Hill i9 tho only mau who
can carry Now York, and must ol
necessity bo tho Democratic nominee
for president in 1892.
Now, following up tho political
strings and wires attached to oaoh and
every influenco used to elect Mr. CriBp,
it will bo found that eaoh and every
one of them leads direotly to New
York, Tammany Hall and D. 13. Hill
Tho oloven hoof, forked-tail and
horned-heud of this infernal combina
tion is now upparont, and is nothing
lass than the fialo and delivery of tho
National Demooratio party into the
hands of tho northeastern Democratic
leaders, represented by Hill and Tam
many, sevonty fivo in every hundred of
whom do not differ a hairs breaJth
with tho Republican party upon the
questions of tariff and 6ilvor ooinaco
They havo made tho salo and the
question for tho Democraoy is, can
they deliver tho proporty.
In tho spoech alluded to, Senator
Hill poses magnificently as a tariff re
former and freo silvor advocato, and
rings tho ohaugert on each in a man
ner to almost iorco one to believo that
ho really means what ho says; but
juit as vj aro beginning to bo con
vinced, against our bettor judgmont,
that after all bo my be somewhat of
a statesman, he suddenly chungCB

wily political domagoguo, and tolls
tho great national party of the people
that it must not "writo one lino upon
tho Federal statuto books," not one
lino for froo coinage, nor for tariff ro
form, nor for tho overburdened peo
ple's benefit, but with Hill as tho
Icador, (always Hill), fight and win tho
battlo of 18o2, and thou it is all plain
sailing. To oall this statesmanship,

tho countenance of tho first man w.i

watched him greedily. Then tho two
others fought for tho bottle. Tho

Then tho third took his tuin. Then
