Thm Combine TL.ket.
After hunting the woods for up
wards of two weeks the PopRtepubll
can combine succeeded in landing
in their trap a State ticket. The
tkket contains the names of several
very excellent gentlemen who would
capably 11ll their respective efclces, if
they had the remotest chance of

other ground than that which const.

and his State -nd whose only sin in
the eyes of these gentlemen is that
he has failed to meet their peculiar
and inordinate ambittons.
Out of their foveted imaginations
these gentlemen have shaped a mon
ster and called it Foster, a monstrosi
ty and termed it Foeterism, and this,
by their own eosfession, is the sole
ti that binds them togethes, the sos.
impulse that instigates their action.
The head of the ticket is a "golibug'
of the most pronounced coinage, while
the Populist end of the combine are I
raving for free silver at 16 to 1. He
is a free trader, while the Republican
contingent of his support are high
