partiea agree in saying that it was
the iinest apecch of his life, and that
the ovation tendered him wasbouud
Icssinenihnsiasm. tnnch of it coming
from thooe who had ntliliated with

The ipeee&iM reporled throega Um

fully the isaues of this cainpaign,
but what particularly struek ua waa
hia threat to the go.nfcf.lg. EU was.

bank, but if those eorporations con
tinued to do as they were nnw doing,
in 8ubacnbing to cainpaign funds
for the pwrpoaa of aebeaeaiog voters.
he would work to wipe out every
institntion of this kind. His allu
aion, no doubt, waa elicited througb
the recent action of some Baltimore
banka. As we understand it the
Kepublican Cainpaign Committce
assesaed the banka of Haltimore
$80,000 contribution towards their
fund; the amount had secretly been
aubseribed by a rneeting of the Ke?
publican directora when 3ome Demo
cratic directora got wind of it and
put a 8top to it. This exposure of
the action of Hanna's committee DOJ
disgusted the people of Marvland
and elaewhere, and it ia to be hopeJ
that the same may bc made public
in theotherlarge cities of ihe Union,
for there ia little doubt that the
banka in all large citiea have been
proportionatcly assessed for liepub
lican campaign purposea.
In a recent iasue of a new maga
zine a chronicler of political eventa
says that it took leas than sevt-n
hundred dollars as a campaign fund
to elect Abraham Lincoln the lirst
timeand a hundred thouaand dollars
to re-elect him. Also, that the
campaign fund that will be lueded
to elect apresidential candidate this
year will be about tive millions. We
believe that amount of money would
elect Mr. Bryan, but if the writer
haa reference to tbe Kepublican
treasury he is wide of the mark. It
took $30,000,000 to elect .Mr. M,
Kinley four yeara ago and the most
sanguine hopes of his party do not

The Kepublicans have two men on
the stump who eould be retired with
positive protit to the Kepublican
cauae. They are Governor Koosevelt,
of New York, Kepublican candidate
for Vice-Preaident, and Senator
lianna, of Ohio.
The receptiona given to Koosevelt
and Hauna at aeveral of their recent
meetings, and the ill temper and un
wise expressiens of both under pro
vocation from the audience, clearlv
show that they are not eijuipped to
cope with popular aasemblies. Bryan
baa had just aa much provocation
