"This Is not Democ racy! The Democratic theory is not that the- government should support the people, .but that the people should support the government. The platform agreed upon by the committee declares for a single gold standard with such subsidiary coinage as is necessary without disturbing the parity. It does not -mention an inter national agreement and makes no ref erence to an income tax. The tariff plank is substantially the same as the main plank in the Maine sound money platform.

Now Mrs. Campbell happens to have a -brother-in-law. His name is James Campbell, and it further happens that James (has a wooden, leg. To be ab-': solutely truthful, he has two wooden legs, and this tact contributed in no small degree to the 'brilliant success of -his sister-in-law's device.

Senor Frederico Krrszariz has been a mem ber of several Chilian cabinets and he is regarded as one of the moet brilliant of the political leaders of South America. The candidate of the opposition was Senor -Reyes. It was reported that Senor Errazuriz expended more than $400,000 in hiscarapaign. Senor Reyee, on the other hand, announced that he would not spend one cent. Before the election Reyes issued an address to the electors, in which he said that what he had amassed he should save for his children. He said that he was unal terably opposed to spending money to satisfy the personal vanity involved in a desire to become president. He an nounced that he objected to the use of large snms of money in the political campaign because if the practice con tinued only wealth v men couii hone to attain the higher offices. The election was very close acd the results will probably depend npon the returns re ceived ard the members elected from some of the most remote provinces of Chili. The Chilian congress decided definitely to determine who was elected Dresidcnt at a meeting to be held Sun day, August 30. On account of the closeness of the vote it is feared tbat a revolution may be attempted no matter wmcn candidate is triumphant. There is little talk of a third or compromise candidate. COWBOY RICES.
