An official position under the

anything but a public trust. In
fact the more uses it can be put to
the better are its functions fulfilled,

The St Louis Globe-Democrat
says that " the contract providence
awarded to the Republicans to run
this country for another cpiarter of
a century has only just begun."
It is true that the execution of the
contract has begun, but it does not
follow that it will continue twenty-
five years or five years. A higher
and more potential providence has
already awarded a more valid con
tract to the Democrats to annul the
first contract and to exterminate
the contractors. And that the Dem
ocrats will do without regard to
providential or other contracts,
They will do it of their own voli
tion and by their own power.
