The blackbirds, in and about Olym pia, are exceeded in number only by the falling leaves. A light shower of rain fell Momlay night. It has cleared the atmosphere and revived vegetation. (.'has. 11. Aver and Tims. J. Miller spoke at Rainier Wednesday night to a large and enthusiastic crowd. Ed. Melton has a cabbage in his show-window that weighs 41 pounds. It was raised by Mr. Laughlin, of this count v. The Westside road leading down the hay should be repaired before it is put in a worse condition by the com ing rains. Mrs. J. J. Gilbert has closed her residence in this city for the purpose of spending some months in San Francisco. W. 11. Abel, of Montcsano, fusion candidate for County Attorney of Chehalis county, was a caller at head quarters Tuesday. The Capital Brewing Company is having its freight car handsomely decorated, the artistic work being done by H. li. Hill. A brace of hardy Olympians have started in to compete with the Ital ians in the fishing industry of the up per Sound districts. Not to be left in the background, a foot ball team has been organized by the young men attending Prof. Mil ler's Business College. THE HONEST DOLLAR passes from hand to hand, from mind to mind, and from soul to soul, and nobody doubts its genuineness. " Leo," the dishwasher at Harbst's restaurant, was severely scalded about the head by the overturning of a coffee boiler, Wednesday night. Rev. G. H. Feese, pastor of the Methodist Church, has recovered from the injuries received in a late fall down the stairway of his dwelling. The Mitchell store building near the corner of Columbia and Third streets, has been opened to lie used as sample rooms for the Carlton House. The schooner Bangor, Capt. G. Asp, cleared from the Westside mill Tues day for Guaymas, Mexico, with a cargo comprising 000,000 feet of lum ber. THE HONEST DOLLAR may not die, " Olv," with the close of the campaign. It may survive to make life a dreary waste for its little " gold-dollar" com petitor. Mrs. O. C. Lacey, aged 39 years, died in this city Saturday night, at the residence of John R. Mitchell. She had been in poor health for several years past. Fisherman Coffin, a well-known old Olympian, lies sick at his float-house at the foot of Main street, and some of his good Samaritan friends are car ing for him. Miss May Randolph, late of Olym pia and well known among its young people, is Principal of the " Model School," an attachment of Vashon College, at Burton. A new meat market has been opened on the Eastside in the Gros venor building. So an even half dozen places ought to be enough to supply Olympia flesh-eaters. The new hose-cart arrived, Wednes day, from Portland, and the old Co lumbia hand-engine will lie shipped in payment to do service in another field. Good bye, Old Reliable! The McKiuley sack is getting in its work, and it is boasted that it is long enough to meet all demands, in cluding " didies" and nursing bottle for its bantling, little Jack Republican. The indignation among business men in Olympia against the notorious O. C. Lacey, is of such a nature that it would not lie a pleasant thing for him to make his appearance in this city. Free silver means the absolute ownership of the white metal, and a silver dollar represents the freedom for which our fathers pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. The lumber industry of Olympia is being well recognized by large dealers abroad, a fact made evident by the constant shipments by sailing craft and rail from the Westside and Olym pia mills. Mr. C. 11. Elliott, a well known Olympian, is the inventor of a valua ble horse-shoe for the protection of cracked hoofs. The contrivance in closes the entire rim of the hoof and is secured in its place without nails. The ministers of the Episcopal churches, east and west, are defending Mr. Bryan against the charges of blasphemy made against him by Re publican demagogues for his allusion to the "crown of thorns and cross of gold." It's in the air. Even the school children breathe the air of political freedom. In Miss Wilcox' room of the puolic school, at Tumwatcr, a ballot was taken Monday which re sulted in 28 for Bryan, and 7 for Boss McKiulev. If the future may he judged by the past, then it may lie conclud'sl that a wiiiking candidate will male a work ing President, and a candidate who only sits in his chair at home will harely sit in the Presidential chair w hen elected. Little " Olv" does not take kindly to our invitation to come on with its " dye-stutl'," and declines to "throw dirt." \\ ho said anything about dirt? " Everybody to his taste," however, as tlie rooster remarked as he resumed his repast of guano. It seems that the use of the name of one of the two ladies who were advertised to speak at Tuniwater Tuesday, on behalf of the Republi can ticket, was entirely without her consent and she knew nothing of it until the posters were out. Those who would linish their col lections of autumn leaves should gather them immediately; they are beautifully tinted now, hut the next frost will make a clean sweep of them. It is also high time to look after the safety of delicate house plants. Hon. M. M. God ma n, of Columbia county, was in the city Sunday and Monday. Mr. Godman will he remem bered as a member of the Constitu tional Convention, and lie is now a candidate for the Superior Judgeship 011 the fusion ticket for Columbia, Garfield and Asotin counties. Frank R. Raker, Chairman of the People's Party State Campaign Com mittee, was in the city Tuesday for a short time, going to Seattle 011 the afternoon boat. Mr. Raker called at the county committee headquarters and reported the situation in the State as " only a question of majority" for the silver forces. A beautiful pen sketch of Mt. Rain ier may he seen in the show-window of Hall's hardware store. It was made by Dr. 11. C. Whiting of Chicago, who has boon occupying a cottage at But ler's Cove for the past three months. The picture is greatly appreciated by Mrs. Hall to whom it was presented by Mr. and Mrs. Whiting. Dr. Mitchell, George Marvin Savage and John K. Mitchell addressed the people of Little Rock Tuesday night. The meeting was an excellent one. A number of Republicans were in the audience and took considerable inter est in the proceedings. Little Rock precinct will give the People's party ticket over fifty majority. Hon. Joseph T. Allen and Hon. W. 11. White will sj>eak to the people of Thurston county county in this city on Wednesday evening, Oct. 28th. Both these gentleman are so well known throughout the county and State that the bare announcement of their appearance is sufficient to crowd our hall to its fullest extent. On Saturday evening the silver forces of Thurston county will bo en tertained at the Bryan-Rogers club rooms by I. J. Lichtenberg and Judge Richard Winsor, of Seattle. Judge Lichtenberg is a veteran of the civil war and an agreeable speaker, and Judge Winsor's reputation as an orator is too well known to need extended mention. An enterprising wight of small stature lias started the business of peddling salmon, trout and smelt, fresh from their native element, through the streets of Olympia in a hand-cart. This is a great conven ience to families besides carrying with it the assurance that they are being supplied with a prime article of pisca torial food. The joint debate at Yelm Tuesday night resulted in a grand victory for the People's Party. The programme arranged by the chairman of each com mittee was carried out to the letter, and H. L. Forrest proved himself to tie altogether to well posted on the financial question for the Republican representative, Mr. T. P. Fisk, to combat in a battle of words. Crowds from the country will un doubtedly take advantage of Prof. O. L. Miller's speech Saturday afternoon, in the Olympia Theater. The hour for the meeting, 1:30 o'clock p. M.,has b?en fixed so that our country friends may hear the speaking and reach their homes liefore dark. Prof. Mil ler's speech will be a treat to those who have heard him, as well as to those who have not. Since the ladies have added their presence and efforts to the Bryan-Rog ers Club, good taste is shown in the decorations of the headquarters. Most men are but bunglers in such work, but when the deft hands of wo men engage in weaving objects of beauty a magic seems to flow from their finger's ends. The decorations consist mainly of Nature's handiwork, "winter berries" amid the delicate tracery of vines. Prof. Gatince, one of the State gold bug speakers, was recently induced to go to Bucoda to help out the individ ual candidacy of Dr. Mead, whose case was realized to be almost desperate. The effect of the " Professor's" speech was rather of the negative order, as the Republican friends of Dr. Mead are not slow in declaring that should the " Professor" make another " stab" at that vicinity, the Doctor wouldn't know he was running at all. A meeting of the silver forees was held at South Bay Wednesday night. Addresses were made by B. W. Brintnall and John R. Mitchell. The oppositiou also had a meeting in the vicinity, but as usual the crowd was with the people's cause. The school house was comfortably filled, mostly by voters who came to listen to the Btrong, forcible chat and vigorous presenta tian of the issues usual to these pop ular campaigners. The campaign committee has defi nitely arranged the details of the meeting in this city at which Prof. O, L. Miller will address the citizens. It was at first thought l>est to have an open-air meeting, Saturday, afternoon next, but owing to the uncertainty of the weather it lias been decided to se cure Olympia Theater. Frof. Miller goes to Shelton at 5:30 o'clock Satur day afternoon to speak, and for this reason the Olympia meeting has been called fori: JO o'clock in the afternoon. This fact will also allow the country people an opportunity of hearing Mr. Miller. It is expected that a large crowd will take advantage of the hour and time. LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. Tlif Italnlir Itallirk. I-OfoCKATIC. <•11 '1 hur.-dav evening, t ii toher 17th, j Me-srs. Dr. Mitchell, J. C. Conine and John R. Mitchell gave the citizens of ' Rainu r and Velm a talk on the cam paign issues of the day. About I'NI were out, tile school benches and what temporary seats could he put in being comfortably tilled, besides a number being compelled to stand. 1 <r. M itehell gave ns a good talk, which wa»ciithu siastieally received. John R. Mitchell was at his best and brightest and made not only the speech of the evening, but of the campaign, lie held the undivided attention of the audience, and was frequently and enthusiastic ally applauded. He was clear, courte ous, logical and concise, and made an most excellent impression 011 nil who heard him. Rainier will always furnish John R. with a crowded house. Messrs. Sullivan and Hillings were in troduced and made a few remarks. The best of order and good feeling pre vailed, and the meeting closed with three rousing cheers for Rryan. KEITW.ICAX. Saturday evening about fifty, a great many of whom were silver men, gath ered to hear the Republican glee club ami Col. Divings and Hon. J. O'lL Scohcv. Our local Mark Hanna re quested that the audience refrain from asking the speakers any questions. Mr. Divings characterized the union forces as demagogues, hot for olliec, who were gathering the forces of repu diation and anarchy for an assault upon civil liberty,and that the Repub lican party kept coining silver as long as they could force it upon the people. He is strong 011 "want of confidence." lie is afraid of demagogues who want ollice, and those who heard him speak thought "big demagogy for a little office." Mr. Seobev gave the Populists the credit of knowing their own plat form, which is more than can can he said of some Republicans. As lie con lined himself principally to the money question he didn't make much of a sensation, as the Republicans want taritr. That is what Hanna has prom ised them and they believe in Hanna. He gave some two hours to the finan cial question, and the tariti', which he called the "grcate- issue," some two minutes. Bigk Eddy. minting* of a Itloisback. Modeled from Republican argument, our children call their pig McKinley Bill. They are going to kill him No vember 3. The ukase has gone forth, and Republican stump speakers are talking tariff. The Republican Com mittee still concede Bryan 110 elec toral votes. Very generous of them, indeed! How nice it would he if the McKinley men could have Me. and the Bryan men Bryan. Corporate frrecd holila place anil power. Labor strives ill vain Tor breail; Since labor casts tlic winning vote The fool-killer must be dea<t.

And corn and wine eulore; Himself be feeds upon a crust. At the plutocrat's back door. The Republican speakers start out by conceding our honesty, hut before they get through we aren't so sure of their opinion, for they call us repudia tors and anarchists. What a pile of capital has come into the State under Republican gov ernment! Are the Republicans tell ing you here they built the State Cap itol? BIGE EDDY. A " Frost" for Doollitle. MR. EDITOR: Congressman Doolittle and J. I). McCutcheon have made two sjieeches each in the logging camps of this county and have encountered a decided " frost." The first evening they spoke on the Blakcly road to the crews of two -of Sol. U. Simpson's logging camps. The foreman of one of the crews afterward said: "We had four gold men* in our camp before those speeches were made; now even they are silver men." They met a similar reception at the camps on the Penin sular road last night. Every men tion of Bryan's name was wildly cheered. These gentlemen speak in Shelton to-night, and oui local silver paper, the Shelton Tribune, asks Doo little if he is " resisting the gold stand ard as he would the invasion of a for eign foe," and challenges him to square himself if he can with the voters of Mason county. Mason county is solid for free silver. SILVER REPUBLICAN. SHELTON, Wash., Oct. 17,18%. Dr. Ulead on (be Wages of Labor. MR. T. J. MILLER: As I am somewhat interested this year in political affairs, I consider it my duty to make known to my logging friends a conversation that took place between Dr. C. A. Mead, of Bucoda, and myself, on the 20th day of Sep tember, 1896, at C. C. Case's drug store. Dr. Mead said: " Loggers have had too much wages in this country, according to other things, especially teamsters, when they got $125 per month. It was more than they should have had." In reply to him I asked: " What do you think about office holders, working eight hours a day? Do they get too much wages?" Dr. Mead: "No; remember they have to give heavy lainds. When farmers got S2O a ton for hay, it was more than any one could afford to pay." R. O. GIBSON. BUCODA, Oct. 8,1896. A Challenge From 11. L. Forrest. MR. EDITOR: The People's' Party, Democrats and Free Silver Republicans, are so well pleased over the result of my joint dis cussion with Mr. Fisk at Yelm on the 20th inst., that I have agreed to say on their la-half that I will arrange for a joint discussion at any suitable point within Thurston county between how and election with any State cam paign speaker of the Republican party. As the Olympian seems confident from its late utterances that they can " do us up," they will certainly not object to this invitation. Respectfully, 11. L. FORREST. A FREE-SILVER parade at Whatcom, a few days ago, was over a mile in length, which indicates that the " craze" is rapidly on the wane. The latter part of the above sentence is to be read with a slight tremor of the left optic. THE effect of Bryan's election is al ready shown in the advanced price of . wheat. 1\ C. SULLIVAN. 111% > o 111 111 :■ 11 an fii%ult 10 a free People by a Corrupt Machine. A correspondent of the Tacoma Morning Union after citing Mr. Sulli van's connection with the Tacoma water steal .-.ays: , Tiie election of Mayor Hu&on, Har ris A. Corell and other councilmen of his ilk. as a condition precedent to the light and water steal, was mere child's play when compared with the i most infamous and gigantic scheme now on foot, by the same corrupt and corrupting forces, to capture the office of governor, the legislative and county ticket. The whole ticket, with but three exceptions, and they unimport ant, was plainly and manifestly dic tated by the corporate machine in this city, organized for the purpose of run ning politics in this city, county and state. The machine has been solidly manipulated in broad daylight, as well as at all hours of the night, by the bankrupt briber Anderson and the at torneys of the Northern Pacific rail road company. The nomination of this man Sulli van for governor of this great com monwealth was the greatest insul ever offered a free people by a corrupt machine, organized for looting and pillage. Why was he nominated? Was it on account of his material wealth? He has not a foot of proper ty in the state, so far as I can find. He has nothing in the state that I know of unless it be a possible equity in the poker chips of a certain gamb ling house. Was he nominated on account of his education, culture and refinement? He never had a common school educa tion, and has ncrmore culture or refine ment than the heelers and hoodlums with which he has associated ever since he has been in Tacoma. Was lie nominated for governor on account of his high social standing? Is there a respectable and self-respect ing man in Tacoma who will take him into liis home and introduce him to his family? If there is one please get liis name and publish it to the world, so that all decent people may shun him. Was he nominated for governor on account of liis high standing among churchmen? Was he ever inside a church in Tacoma? Has he not spent the most of liis time since coming to Tacoiua in saloons, gambling houses and like resorts? Was he nominated on account of his magnificent presence? At all times he looks and acts like the sneak. Was it on account of his great oratorical powers? He can't even write a speech, let alone deliver an address. Was it on account of his great legal lore? Has he ever been anything more in the firm of Crowley, Sullivan it Grosscup than the political partner? Is lie not still their silent partner in all political. Northern Pacific and Ta coma Land company affairs? Strang est of all, I am told he is to get the whole of the corporation, saloon, church and gambling house vote in the state. A nice mixture, isn't it? Why, the truth is he was nominated for the simple reason that lie is now, and for years has been, the pliant tool of corporations—was the attorney of bankrupt briber Anderson during the water deal, engineered the deal and was paid as an attorney for it. l.rwU at Hucodu. Hon. James Hamilton Lewis re ceived an ovation at llucodalast night of which any man might l>e proud. All day yesterday farmers' wagons loaded with human freight poured into town, until at dark the city was crowded to an extent never before known in its history. When the hour for sjieaking had arrived the hall, which has an ordinary seating capac ity of 4f>o, was found wholly inade quate. Fully 050 people crowded and jammed into the building until not an inch of space was left unused. In addition to the crowd in the laxly of the house, 05 persons were seated 011 the stage and the crowd extended far into the street. Col. Lewis' address was directed principally to the Republicans present, and its impress will be discernable in Rucoda precinct when the votes are counted November 3d. Kail; at Khelton. SIIELTON, Wash., Oct. 17,1806. Hons. Fred. T. Merrill and T. O. Abbott, both of Taeoiun, spoke here to a good sized audience at the Court House last night. Owing to the late arrival of the boat bringing the speak ers many persons went home before their arrival. Mr. Abbott was intro duced by Chairman Kneeland, and made a very argumentative and logical speech of three-quarters of an hour, after which Mr. Merrill was introduced, and although his voice was not in good condition owing to a severe cold, he made one of the most eloquent speeches ever heard in Slielton. His witty, sarcastic, logical outbursts of oratory and sound reasoning brought forth frequent and enthusiastic ap plause. The speeches have done much good here. merrlll at Hucodu. MR. EDITOR: F. T. Merrill spoke here last even ing to a full house, totally demolish ing the few weak arguments which were advanced by Prof. Gance, Tues day evening. The Professor was a dis appointment to the people, his speech being mostly a rehash of P.-I. editor ials. He was the first and only sjieaker here who has had the dam phoolishncss to impugn Mr. Rryan's motives. One or two more like Davis and Merrill will knock Sullivan into a cocked hat. Our glee club is now ready. 11. RUCODA, Oct. 16,1896. No "FAT" FOR OUTSIDERS. Our local Mark Hanna had arranged a free excursion to-day to Seattle to hear Ben Butterworth sing peans to Mc- Kinley, but it seems that a hitch has occurred iu the proceedings. He had very naturally thought that the ex penses should be paid out of the cor ruption fund apportioned to King county, instead of the " dab" thrown to Thurston, but Seattle Republicans say they need three or four times the amount contributed from the Canton try-kettle to elect a single man on the goldbug ticket in King, and very nat urally decline to spend what they have iu steamboat charter for the mere purpose of using visitors to count from. The " boys" are of course dis appointed, as many who at home wear the Bryan badge had decided to go, just as they have to Canton the past few months, as a legitimate means of " foraging on the enemy." SECURE A FLAG. —In accordance with the suggestion of our national standard-bearer, all patriotic silver men are requested to decorate their houses and places of business with llags and the national colors from next Saturday, and contiuue the dee orations until the end of the cam paign. Anticipating this, the cam paign committee has secured a large number of Hags, which may be had 011 application at headquarters. Pat riotic citizens should take advantage of this fact and secure flags at once. LAN ACKNOWLEDGED TRIUMPII A I'ninplrfr Victory for the Kululit of the People In the foil lent ut Velm. A joint debate, arranged by the re spective committees of the two parties, and which was intended to some degree to he decisive, took place Tuesday evening at Yelm, between 11. L. For rest on behalf of the people, and J. I'. Fisk representing the goldbugs. The question presented was " The Finan cial Issue," which of course opened up the whole subject of political conten tion. The building where the debato oc curred, which will hold probably iIOO people, was crowded, and about as many more people listened to the speakers from the outside. Mr. For rest's remarks were wildly cheered, the enthusiasm becoming eo intense at times that the Chairman was com pelled to ask the audience to refrain from applause for fear of safety of the building. Mr. Fisk, though clever in the pre sentation of his subject, was a disap pointment to the goldbugs in the audience, for they had not counted upon the inefficiency of their syndicate arguments when arrayed in the light of reason. It was soon shown that their champion was 110 match for his antagonist, armed with the weapons of a quarrel just. Mr. Fisk said the hard times were caused by the agitation of the silver men. He finally got rattled, and abandoning the financial question began to abuse the character of John 11. Rogers, candidate for Governor. Mr. Forrest in replying casually in timated that Fisk should he careful in remarks on Rogers, as the latter, when elected Governor, would be in posses sion of the pardoning power. The unequal contest was closed in a fifteen minute speech by Mr. Forrest, and not eveu the presence of the Me- Kinley glee club was able to raise the depressed spirits of the Republicans present. The victor received an ova tion as the Ben Hur of a match that was to set the seal of favor upon the cause advocated by the successful con testant. RERRNUCAN MEETING AT RELMORE. —The Republicans had another "grand rally" at Relmore Tuesday evening, at which three goldbugs and about forty Rryan men were present. Mr. Faulk nor, the candidate for Attorney, kept the babies quiet by drawing funny car toons on the blackboard and trotting thetootsy-wootseys" on his knee, while Mr. Linn, the aspirant for Rep resentative, pounded the air in the vain endeavor to show that he could serve the people as a Republican in a Legislature that will l>e under the domination of the People's party. The speaker failed to perform a like friendly service for Mr. Faulkner, when he " took the stand," for his first words seemed to be the signal for half a dozen curs to begin a prolonged howl, which in its funereal cadence, re sembled the death-knell of an expiring party. After he got under way, how ever, it was fair sailing, for Mr. F.'s speeches are simply oily gammon, which Hows smoothly as molasses from a jug, without any appearance of oratorical costiveness. He, however, ran against a snubbing-post when he thoughtlessly uttered the name of Rryan. Immediately a flag was waved in the center of the hall bear ing the legend " Rryan, the Friend of the People," and at one side the Ex aminer's cartoon of McKinley and Herr Most engaged in a game of see saw 011 a gold plank was prominently displayed. The boys will have their fun, you know, and political senti ment just now is like a tire-cracker with its fuse fizzing and ready to ex plode at any moment. THE MEETING AT TENINO.— A rous ing meeting of the silver forces took place at Tenino last night. Prof. Brintnall and T. J. Miller addressed the meeting at length and short ad dresses were made by Robt. Graham and James Brewer. At least one Mc- Kinley button was removed and the enthusiasm of the meeting was im mense from start to finish, contrasting sharply in this respect with the feel ing manifested at the Mark Hanna meeting addressed the evening before by Mr. Scobey ami others. Over 300 were in attendarce. The Bryan peo ple in this precinct are still receiving accessions and will give a gocxl ac count of themselves 011 the 3d of No vember. CASTORIA For Infants and Children. ru fw- . /j What It la. A wonderful thing is that little sil ver disk we call a dollar. It only lacks a tongue to declare its identity and say, " I am a dollar, and of the value of one hundred cents in the money schedule of a great nation." Virtually, if not literally, this declara tion is stamped in the solid substance of the metal, witnessed by the Goddess of Liberty and the eagle and attested by the signature of our Republic in the words " United States of America." As if this were not enough, our line age is declared in an unknown tongue, K Jiuribus Unum; Jesus Christ is ac knowledged in tliedate of coinage and finally, to crown the whole with the grandest pcroratiou ever uttered by human lips, a hundred millions of freemen at home and abroad, take upon themselves that solemn obliga tion, " In God We Trust!" Such, then, is the true personnel of that coin which demagogues would have the people believe can be made to Ixdie its own words and become a miserable misnomer. THE Olympian is using its lying machine in accord with the Republi can party glee club, to boom the effort of the filled-cheese Democrats. It says the audience at the Burke shak ing Saturday was "immense." Yes, immense, for the tail end of a party without pedigree or hope of posterity. BURKE said people are not capable of settling financial questions be cause they are economic questions; a committee of bankers would suit him better. Shoes! Shoes I DURING THE COMING WEEK BARGAIN SEEKERS WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO BUY SHOES At Exceptionally Low Prices. A SPECIAL WILL BE OUR EXTENSIVE LINE OF LADIES' DONGOLA PATENT TIP, SQUARE AND ROUND TOE, AT $1,15, AND OUR MEN'S SATIN, CALF, LxYCE AND CONGRESS AT $1.40, WHICH SHOULD COM MAND TIIE ATTENTION OF EVERYONE. GL ROSENTHAL F« S.—Don t buy your Underwear and Hosiery before vou see my new Fall Stock. Impeaches its Own Witness. It is surprising how circumstances alter cases: how a man may be a saint when lie agrees with you and an arrant sinner when his judgment runs coun ter to yours. An instance in point is the P-.l.'s attempt to belittle the work of Abe Spring in unearthing the cor ruption of the McGraw administra tion. Having disclosed the alarming fact that through incompetence and extravagance the State has been pay ing $1,500 per day for the privilege of living ever since the boss assumed the Executive chair, he is now engaged in digging up the facts in the Coblentz Penitentiary defalcation, with a view of showing who is responsible for ap propriation of the State's money and the failure, after two years of waiting, to secure some recompense from the suicide's sureties. This is, of course, creating a feeling of alarm among Mc- Graw's henchmen, and they have let loose the dogs of war upon Mr. Spring. Time was, however, when the P.-I. was glad to quote Mr. Spring 011 most any subject and to accord him full credit for probity and sound judg ment. That was before the gentle man had left the Republican party, with many others, in consequence of its degeneracy and utter unwortlii ness. Facts that may be easily proven by the record, and figures that worry and annoy, are not easily downed by mere denial and abuse of those who use them, in prosecution of a righteous cause. The Profundity of Jealousy. Because Bryan's versatile mind con ceived that elegant classico-scriptural similes, the "Crown of Thorns" and " Cross of Gold," a great hue and cry has been raised by the Republican press, and he is denounced as having perpetrated a palpable blasphemy. Had McKinley stumbled upon the happy metaphor while orating from his veranda in Canton, too much praise could not have been heaped upon him by the brave men and fair women who would kiss the grass in his front lawn; and the wonderful excerpt would have been trumpeted from the Atlantic to the Pacific as just too sweet for any thing. But it makes a great deal of difference in this little world of ours who it is that says all the pretty things. Now in regard to this matter there are two notable considerations and one of two things must be true, namely: If Bryan's calumniators are sincere in their criticisms, then are they consummate asses in rhetorical lore and know not how to construe the English aright; if they are not sincere, they are simply dishonest journalists, and they would not hesi tate to steal an adversary's thunder bolts if given but the shadow of an opportunity. A WHITE CHINAMAN. —The Olym pian says that there is hut one China man in the United States who will vote, and it of course claims his vote for the tin-joss at Canton. Our con temporary is slightly in error. We have a Chinaman in this eitv, who is as white and intelligent asanybody, who wiil vote. His parents were, how ever, full-blooded American citizens, and it was not his fault they were away from home when the important event of his nativity occurred. We are afraid that he too will vote for the tin-god. Ah Sam! WHY is the report of the State Hoard of Equalization not available to the public? They completed their lal>ors last month, and there is no reason why the State Printer should ■ot have turned out the work in two ar three days. Is the hornet's nest that Robert Bridges is stirring up in culcating a policy of suppression, di gression and silence? Is there any thing to cover up in perpetuation of that infamous policy by which corpor ate wealth was enabled to escajie its just share of taxation? " Ol.n NICK" is said to have cliarac ized Bryan, in his speech at Rainier, as "An enemy to his country and a traitor to himself and his God."
