That election is to be the Sun- Juun of a great political and national movement. It is to determine whether we are to sain and hold the summit which will command political pcace and pubHe security, or whether we are to fall in the charge, and enter upon a long course of doubt, uncertainty and djaturhance. American courage and heroI lam did not fall as they followed the Hag amid shot and shell to the crest of the heights which commanded Santiago and tmiatcrcd Spain, and American courage will not fail in the political San Juan to preserve the fruits of the triumph and to crown the splendid victory of arms with a no less Important victory of the ballot-box. "The army and navy have magnificently done their part. The President baa wisely and courageously done his. and prepared the way for what is yet to be done. It now remains to be determined whether the people will do theirs with e?ual Intelligence, loyalty and devotion. "Who shall cast a shadow on the achievements of the soldiers and Bailors? WHO shall say augnt against the statesmanship and sagacity with which the President has directed the war and Inaugurated peace? And with this splendid exhibition of American ra&nhoou and valor in the ranks* and of American leadership In command, shall there be any room after next Tuesday for saying that, la the crucial and culminating hour of the struggle the American people proved unworthy of the army and navy, and of their /alihful commander-lrv-chlef, and stumbled and faltered and fell just when the rich fruits ot success were to be garnered? (Prolonged cheers.) "The past six months have been crowded with history and with glory.

Our flag floats over new peas and lands; we have gained the most Important acquisitions the country has made sinco the accession of California; our unparalleled trimphs have brought a new revelation to the world of American, resources and capabilities. and we have stepped forward as a great world power with a moral influence beyond anything we have ever before possessed. We are af hnmp and Btmncpr abroad. IWe have had a magnificent baptism of patriotic fervor.

It would >f be much worse than the results that fol? " lowed the election of 1892. Now these J things are facts, and if our people can be [a caused to see them and to properly real* g izo them, they will vote for a continuad tion of that policy that has lighted the furnace fires all over the land, thus giv;o ing to every man work to do.

Jr Still there Is such a fhlngr as allowlns it this apathy to do very much to our hurt u In 1892 times were prosperous and w< neved dreamed that such a thing shoull .(1 happen as did happen. it Why any one should wish a change just now is past the comprehension of on* who tries to view matters in a commor sense way. Every man who wishes tc work, can get plenty to do at paying c wages; all kinds of 'business is boOtftlng then why desire a change In the manr, agcment of the affairs of our governto ment. To make a change now cannol f(i better matters; then why wish it. II [J things cannot be bettered they wll ;) surely be made worse.

MONTPEUBR, Vt., Nov. 3.?United States Senator Redfleld Proctor, who arrived here yesterday, after a trip abroad, addressed the Joint assembly of (he house and senate, which last month re-elected him. Senator Proctor's address was brief, and was confined to an outlfnfe of the foreign situation which now confronts the government of the United States. The senator said: "The future policy of this country Is the greatest question before our people. "Hawaii and Porto Rico have been added to the nation's dominion, and we have become sponsors for the good government of Cuba. We raiftt assume noma ruinnnilMltv In- fhf? Par Rait. *- whether It he greater or Jesau. In roy 1 opinion, the responsibilities In the Par ? East are bound to be greattr. Many > wise and patrlotio men In the country believe we should retain no territory or control any part of the Philippine 1 Islands, beyond a coaling station or ' possibly a single Island. I recognize ' the cogency of their argument, but have J failed to see clearly any practlcsl way ; of carrying out their views. If any ' jurisdiction is assumed in the East, there Is no logical stopping place short 1 of the whole of the Philippines. To establish a divided sovereignty would cause trouble. Since that May morning when rtie Spanish fleet was destroyed. It has seemed to me practically settled that Spain must surrender her entire ' control of the Philippines. Tou will pardon me If I have spoken too plainly, - but It seemed to me that a frank statement of what I believe would be the Inevitable outcome was not Improper at this time." A Soldier Suicide*.
