Kactly in regard to Cleveland

re both honest, fearless, sensi

ork together. They could ac

tit they are hard headed, and as
consequence have about pulled

Northern money sharks and
to Western populists are trying
capture Tillman. We don't

Well, we suppose the rest of us
ill just have to sit still, crack

Some towns propose to issue
iquor licenses as they did in old
imes. They favor the liquor traf
ic provided they can got a revenue
rom it. They agree with the Su
>reme Court that itis all wrong for
country mai to soll whiskey. It
s very demoralizing and entirely
inconstitutional for him to do
uch a thing, but the town saloon
s a necessary and reputable insti
ution. It, is an awful thing for
he State-to engave in the liquor
)usiness and :take the money there
s in it to aid.in paying taxes but
t town has an "inherent inalenable,
md God given right" to receive a
profit from harrooms. It is repre
heinsiblo for the honest farmer to
have his taxes lightoned by dispen
sary money but entirely decent for
the towns to receive profits from
grog-shons.

promeCourt has dcclared that thore
