DEMOCRATS NOT INFALLIBLE,
Tho foremost democrat of tho

statement. This Is one proposition
that Dockorycan got 'doad-oodloa'

Nov. Oth. Every Republican In
tho Stato can bo convinced that
tho democratic party can mnko
mistakes and there aro somo dem-
nprnts -who can bellovo in tho
mistakes of the old gang, too.
Still, to tho most of tho democrats,

Inflexiblo and Infinite, on resources
to patch up their old record,

Dockery says tho democratic
mBjority was delivered over to tho
lobby and tho devil, so to speak,
by that horolo little republican
minority. This Is another evidence
that tho party to which ho belongs

Walbrldgo, spoko to largo and lu-
telllgent ainlieuce at tho court house
lu this city Mouday nflerunou. Mr.
Walbrlge Is not a political orator or
stump speaker. lie Is a plain, honest
business man of St. Louts, who haa
been succcaslul In life aud who now
enjoys the high esteem of his busi
ness associates, republicans and domo
crals alike. There wero no flashes of
nratory, uo scintillating metaphors,
no flaslilug similes, but solid, hanl
business-like propositions, based on
sound Judgment aud loug, practical
experience. In fact, It was an ex
perience meeting, told with the pro
found eloquence of deep couviction of
right, Justice aud truth.
The audience was with the speaker
from start to finish and wheu he au.
uouueed that he was through, uearlr
everybody wauted him to go on.
luopeulug his address the speaker
made a short and concise statement
of the St. IjjuIs World's Fair. Aa

chowed that the country had enjoyed
unprecedented prosperity and that
even Mr. Ilryau admitted it uow. Ho
slateil that Mr. Ilryau .aid prosperity
was due to the big crops am! not to
Mclflnley ami the gold standard, bul
lhat Ilryau forgot about the crops
when he prophesied such dlro calami
ties in 1896. He said lhat n mau who
would forget about our crops waa
not Ihe kind ol man In bo president.
lie then told about tho fair aud Just
election law tho republicans passed

for ouo democrat am one, 'republican
