From that date to" the present,"
said Mr. Hill, "Chairman Cortelyou
has been di'igently soliciting cam-
paign funds from the very corpora
Hons whose business operations and
secret affairs he has recently been
investigating. The motive lor this
extraordinary action is pcarjely dis
guised. The purpose is evident.
It partakes somewhat of the nature
of blackmail. It is a scheme to
utilize official information secured
through official power to compel po
It is a 'stand and deliver' policy
addressed to corporate interests
which cannot well resist the appeal
for fear of retaliation upon them
selves either directly or by favorite
ism to their rivals in business. The
situation constitutes a grave scan
dal, which cannot be ignored nor
condoned. It has no parallel in the
history of the country."
Senator Hill declared that the St.
Louis platform "covered the living
issues now before the country."
He discussed the tariff question
ia much detail, defending the dem
ocratic attitude to be taxation "for
revenue, and that of the republicans
taxation for protection.
"Protection, so-called," he main
tained, "i a species of paternalism
of the most objectionable character.
It invokes the aid of the govern
ment to help one man's business at
the expense of another man's; it de
mands that you shall pay higher
prices for the imported anicles
which you purchase in order that
your neighbor may receive greater
comoensation for his services: it is
a selhsh and not an enlightened and
public-spirited policy; it interferes
with and sets aside the natural law
of supply and demand, which ought
as a general rule always regulate
wages and prices.

that there is no defense for force

After criticising the President's
Panama policy, Mr. Hill closed
with a tribute to the democratic
presidential candidate, saying that
"the country needs a level-headed
and conservative statesman for its

sensational and spectacular perform

Senator Daniel, of Virginia, was

"The outlook for Democratic suc
cess is highly promising and
constantly improving. I have re.
cently been in correspondence with
Democrats in many sections of the
country with whom i nave had po.
litical relations iu the past. The
object ot the correspondence was. to
determine the truth of the state
ment, so often repeated, that there
is disaffection among Democrats
with the national ticket.
"Answers to mv letters have been
coming in and I am prepared to say
that there are no evidences what
ever of disaffection among Dem

Liniment saved my life. I was under

told me one of ray lungs was en
tirely gone and the other badly af
fected. I also had a lump in my
side. I don't think that I could
have lived over two months longer.
I was induced by a friend to try
Ballard's Snow liniment. The first
