DECRIES SPOILS SYSTEM
Attorney General Ellis Says People
Wont Stand for it.
Attornoy General Wado H. Ellis,
responded to a toast at the McKInloy
banquet at Norwalk, O., Monday nlgbt
and in bis speech promulgated some
strong truths, which should bo con
sidered by every clUzcn of the state.
Ho responded to tbo toast "The
Republican Party." Expressing re
gret that the subject had not been
assigned to another, Ellis declared:
"Thero never wa3 a timo when the
Republican party of Ohio so much
needed, as It does today, some great,
strong man to speak for it."
Tho balance of Mr. Ellis' address
was In part as follows:
"All over Ohio tonight thero are
men ready to rcnounco party alle

their heads and deny that they were

tho candidates on our stato ticket

"The real trouble is that wo havo
not had caucuses enough. We havo
had too many orders from head

must rule Itself. Tho danger has
been from somebody else ruling tho
Republican party. As to tho conven

sentiment of a majority of tho party.
Loss of Governorship.

Roosevelt and all that ho stood for.

frankly said so. This equivocation

Startling But True.
People tho world over wero horri
