this season, nor yet all that

we do expect tosella very big

before. We have prepared
far it on that basis ; and we
do know that what we sell,
from the highest to the lowest

than will be sold anywhere
else in this market.
As to Fall Ha ts.
The Puritans who settled
in this country were noted for
their steeple crown hats. The
Ehrase, "shoot the hat," per
aps, originated among the
Indians, who, after they
scalped the heads that wore
those hats, used them for tar
gets. Hats run rather to
mall brims than steeple
crowns this fall, but, brims or
crowns, we have every style
in the market, all grades and
different prices, with the whole
scale lower than you can buy
the same article for elsewhere.

in l&s Since by the billot Is the country
maintained In all its relations, how import
ant it is that this sacred trust should be
kept pure, and guirded against all corrupt

billot and the uprightness of the people,
depend the welfare of the country. Poli

fashion has, however, grown up to pursue
politics as a game, but the time may come
when it will be pursued too fer, as a game,

Now, my joune friends, do not make the
mistake ot thinking tint modern demo
cracy Is the same as clemocracj' was two
generations ago. Modern democracy is co
extensive with the republican pirty.
Whether It should be returned to power de
pends on the utness of its representations,
on its line of policy and on its pit work,
which must be taken as a measure of its
future action. With democrats as individ
uals I have no controversy, because I recog
nize that our interests as individual citizens
are practictlly the snue that we desire to
attain the same end in citizenship. With
the modern democratic party, however, I
have a vehement and never-ending contro
versy. No organization has ever done leas
for mankind, nor more to degrade and to
debase the government to vvlurh it Is allied,
than modern democrat y. If I am wrong in

What is the liMon of modern democra
cy? As early as y,o the tariff had ceased
to lie a bone of contention on the battle
fields of this'country. Slavery stalked to
the front ami ! minded a political party
for Its champion It had realized
that It must $ dominate the country
or tie driven troin beneath the flig under
which It then flourished The whig and
and democratic parties were the two great
political organizations at that time. The
whig party declined to champion slavery or
to take any decided stand agiinst it, and
the party, therefore, soon pised into "In
nocuous desuetude."' A demand arose for
an organization that should lesist the en
croachments of slavery, and all along the
line sprang up live and energetic, country
loving. God-fearing men who enrolled them
selves from the ranks of both the old par
ties into the republican pirty. After
loyalty and freedom had culled the
flower of the two old parties, the
residuum was formed into the modern dem
ocratic party. This rtslduiiia did the bul
ling of the oligarchy, and championed, ad
vocated aud defended the only blot on
Major Butterworth then drew a vivid and
oloquent word picture of the banners under
which republicans and modern democrats
stand arrayed, drawing the Inscriptions on
the banners from the works of the two
"Did not ininy democrats fight for the
cause of the I'nion aud against slavery?"
I hear somebody ask. Yes they did, and
all honor be to them for so doing; but when
they opposed slavery they stepped from
beneath that b inner of modern democracy
and enrolled themselves, for the tijie, at
least, in republicin ranks.
Addressing himself more especially to
the young men among his auditors. Major
Butterworth gave twenty-six reasons why
they ought not to identify themselves with
the modern democratic partj He read
these reasons from manuscript, and thej
were bright, epigramatic and effective. He
was frequently interrupted by prolonged
applause. Among the reasons he gave were
the follow ing:
Because It glorifies the ptire billot while
it atuffs the ballot-box, and cries out for
purity at our elections while it switches
tickets at the polls.
Because it resolves in favor of civil serv
ice reform and then spends its time damn
ing the president, because he affects to be
lieve in it
Because it resolves in favor of everything
to catch v otes, and then does nothing for
fear of losing them.
Because as an orginization it resolves In
favor of ways that are virtuous and then is
afraid to practice what it preaches last it
disband the party.
Because it refuses deserved pensions to
the widows and orp'iai.s of union soldiers
and then turns to these widows ami orphans
and remarks, patronizingly: "We are
y our champions." As a critic it stands be
fore a beautful cottige winch it has had no
part in constructing, criticises the architect
who designed it, the carpenter who built it
and the painter who adorned it aud then
skips around to the baekdoorand threatens
the house-wife with violence unless she
gives it all the cold victuals in the house.
Concerniug the bloody shirt cry, which
is continually being rais.si by the modern
democracy. Major Butterworth sa.d: Igno
rance and prejudice arc strong, aud wher
ev er they abound there ynu will be sure to
hear the cry of "bloody shirt" at any refer
ence that may be made to the late war.
Show me a mm who hasn't bithed this
summer, who spends his time kilting, who
will go home drunk tonight, and who will
lie in bed tomorrow morning w hile his pior
wife goes to a neignbor's to do the washing
to get food for him and the children, and
I'll show you a inuivvho shouts "bloody
shin' louger, louder and more vehemently
thin any other man In your city.
In what way. young man, can modern
democracy sen e yoj better than the party
whicli saved jour country.' What good can
there be In a party that proposes to put our
workingmen on the same plane with the
under-paid labor of Europe.' In Cincin
nati we have cigar nnkers who earn from
St to S3 per day, while the coolie cigar
makers of Cubiwork for twenty -five cents
per day. Bring tho- Cuban cigars in di
rect competition with the Cincinnati product
and our workmen would be thrown out of
employment The republican party, how
ever, adds enough tariff to the Cuban goods
to put them on the sane plane with the
American product and thus insures our la
borer living wages.
Democrats claim that a tariff should
be assessed for revenue only. You would
be the sufferers thereby, and w hy, there
fore, should jou ally yourselves with a
party that gives you no protection?
The democratic party is in favor of free
trade, because the bulk of that party lies
south of the Ohio river, aud since the foun
dation of the country they hav e been In
favor of slave labor.
Here In Spnnghel 1, a man at the polls is
really but one-fourth of a man. because In
the south a pure ballot and a fair count are
lost arts, lour distinguished fellow-citizen,
Geueral Keifer, showed this forci
bly on the floor of the house,
and his scathing uttTiu"es cau-td
the soi'thern members to hang their heads
in shame. Need 1 call your attantlon to
the honest Miry land democrats who have
walked out of the rinks of the political
tricksters and billot b ix stuffers iu the
modern democriey and allied themselves
with the republicans ' Is It worth while
for me to tell you of ex-Governor Hoidly's
expressed hope tint no other democrat
wo.ildeverbe compelled to admit as he
was that votes were counted for him that
rightfully belonged to his opponent.'
The democratic party resolved In a hun
dred conventions that the tariff ought to
be revised, and then, when the bill
was In conjresj to revise It, its
representatives fought the bill with all
their might There were only thirteen of
them who were willing to join with us to
protect manufacturing industries, while all
the time the wheels of m my factories were
silent awaiting the issue. N man in this
audience, be he lawyer, innrttir, preacher,
blacksmith, hod-carrier or clo-k mikercm
make head or tail out of the tariff resolu
tion of their Chicago platform. It reads
equally well both ways, isam Rvidall told
me that he was very well satlshe.1 with the
pirty position as expressed by the platform,
while Morrison claimed to be equally well
satisned wltn ins en 1 ot tne resolution.
Major Butterworth touched incidentally
up n the labor question and prohibitionists,
although concerning the latter.he said Gen
eral Bushuell had told him it would do no
good to talk. He thought that tetu-
p-rance ought to begin at tne hearthstone
aud not on the statute books and that when
the legal harness tigheued the moral Inr-
uess loosened. 1 say to my prohibition
friend that the republican party Is growing
as any party- ought to grow in the direction
of reforms, of which tempt ranee Is only
one. Do you honestly think you can ad

The republican party throws open wide
the door of opportunity, and It does not
hamper anybody's conscience. The mis
sion of the party Is to make all our homes
pure and v irtuous, h ippy and prosperous.
