U. A. Enloe,, better known as

mgrossman from the Jackson
district, is in the city to-day en

has a walk-over for re-nomination

le : " I am confident that the Dem

The only menace to that happy'
achievement lies in the fact that the
Republican Congressional Execu-
ive Committee has at its disposal
a colossal fund to be expended in

"Reed is just now the popular

autocrat and partisan to catch their
fancy. He is tho greatest tyrant
in office the country ever; saw.
However, Blaine is regarded as a
sure and dangerous rival for the
nomination. His reciprocity farce
was made, it is thought, to boom
his aspirations for a seat in the
Whito House. As for Mr. Harri
son, he is completely overshadowed
by these men. I seldom hear any-
thing about tho President ; . not
much attention is paid to him by
anybody in a serious way. We
hear that he has been hunting and
fishing at Cresson Springs,, and
bulletins have been sent out about
them, but that is all the people
have heard from him in some time.
Tho only chance that he has to se
cure a re-nomination would be to
come in as a -compromise man; his
own strength could not secure the
distinction-for him. The Demo
crats are not talking much about

Concerning the Raum investiga
