Congressman Gay Enunciates.
Sound on the Blair Bill
A Supporter of La' or and Protection.
The following was clipped from the
What is Mr. Gay's position on the as
tionel aid question to education labor
and the protective tariff--the Democratic
Convention is silent on these points.
An Item reporter was dispatched to
O,btain the information sought by the
above journal and accetted the honorable
gentleman in the rotunda of the St.
Mr. Gay read the above inquiry and
said that he believed the convention had
in view the principlesenunciated at the
lemoeratie National Convention which
nominated Mr. Cleveland but if these
planks were taken out of the platform by
the convention of the Third District he
was pleased to be given an opportunity
to state his views on the points sugges
tid by the Times.
I am and have been, said Mr. Gay, a
strong advocate of the Blair bill and
there is no possibility of my changing
my mind thereon even If the convention
did lose sight of this highly important
What about labor? asked the Item.
Well, replied Mr. Gay. "I am whole
heart and soul a protection man and as
the labor and protection questions are
so closely allied to each other, I naturally
am in favor of sustaining the interests
of the working classe. 1 believe I have
stated briefly my views and feel esatisfied
that my people will be contented with
the policy I propose to pursue in Con

A Sleeping Car Decision.
The decision of the Masachusetts
courts that sleeping car companies are
relsposible for the property of their pa
trons will lighten very materialy the
woes of those who are compellsd to tra

have been spent by leeping ear passen

footfall is expected.
