There Is going to be au attempt made at the meeting to lire (he Hon. Perry S. Heath, sec retary of thr Republican notional com mittee. The late report of Hon. Joe Brlstow, fourth assistant postmaster general, linn thiown tho hurpoou Into Mr. Iletith wltli nil the onorgy of a man who wanted to set even for some tilings, and that repo. . . stirred up tho president to tho sticking stage nnd he suys that Mr. Hoatli must go. Seiml. - TInnna, tho chnlrman of tho column too. is tho frlond of Henth, anil he Is as Insistent that Mr. Hoatli must not be disturbed. Tills presents nn Issue at once between tho presi dent nnd the senator from Ohio, who Is the real leader of thee Republican party. Tho prosldent apparently for gets that ho did not make up the present national committee of the H publican party, which wields the Iti-ll-.ience and controls things until Its successor is elected at the next na lional Republican convention, but that 1 1 was made up by AlcKlnley and 1' uina, and therefore Is under the con tiul or Hanna. This being the iaw Hi.' committee will accept tho dictum ol Hanna and refuse to "fire" Heath That will discredit Rcosevelt and at t&. rome time place the Republican party In the attitude of working in the interest of a man who practically has been Indicted for boodllng In thr postoffico department. There Is go Ing to bo a warm, lime and Republi can dirty linen will bo wnshed for the delectation of the general public. It will be a straight light between Hanna and Roosevelt and Hanna is going to win. Watch the game. Tim letter of drover Clovoland sl solutoly declining to be considered as candidate for tho prosldontlal nomi nation on the Democratic ticket Is causing much comment here, nnd the attempt of tho peoplo who were tout lng Cleveland to make Judge Parker of Now York tho residuary legatee o Cleveland, has had exactly tho oppo site effect on tho leaders of tho Dem ocratic party 'here, that they expected and hoped It would. It has shown up those people as opposed to the true principles of tho party. As wan stated In this correspondence aomo months ago, tho attempt to tout. Cleveland was simply nn effort on tho part of tho re organizing element of tho party In tho East to feel tho pulso of tho peo ple. They had no idea Unit Mr. Cleve land would stand for ronomlnatlon, but Uioy wonted to seo how far tho people would stand for tho Idea. After thoy L. P. ANDERSON, President. B. F. FRENSLEY.

It seems that Judgo Parker Is the man. The Democratic lenders In emigres are laughing at tho ef fort of thes peoplo to stninpedo the Democratic party to a man who Is the choice of the men who manipulate stocks and Itouds and nil the new fan gled geUrlch-quIck games thnt orlgl note in tho Maelstrom of Money. They say that If that la the game of those people, they will have none of Judge Parker In theira. They see jio differ ence In a Republican and a man who I acceptable to the Wall street gang ' in the Democratic party. They say . " o may as well have a Republican In the white house as a man who has to go to Wall street Intc-.-sts and g" the n-rnoy with which to elect him. and who must make nnte-electlou pioiuiscii In order to get It. in con-, eequenco of this feeling the stock of j the Hon. William Randolph Hearst as : the candidate of tho Democracy In : the next contest, the only man so far mentioned for the nomination who Is not dominated by that gang of com mercial pirates, who hate him cordial 1, has none up several perceptible polnU. , The Panama deal is still a topic or lolltlcnl discussion here, and tho Dem ocrats are as dotermlned as over to make It an Issue In the noxt cam paign. It they do they will show up ;ne of the most stupendous outrages over attempted by this government. From the looks of things this will be supplemented by niiftther attempt on the part of this Republican administra tion to grab San Domingo. The re cent troubles down there have mado things ripe for the deal that a few men in this wintry have been trying lor years to pull off. It Is not gener ally known, but nevertheless it is llu truth, that tho bonds of Ban Domingo, the nrrrro republic to tho extent of hundreds of thousands of dollars, aro owned lu this country and are con trolled by Senator Matt Quay of Pi v. sylvanla and his copartners in tne grafting game. If this government takes over the island of San Domingo thrse bond, which cost the purchas ers about twenty -Ave cents on tho dollar, will be worth par. Thoy, there fore, will make some three hundred per cent profit. The game is woith tho candle. Look out for develop ments In San Domingo. Tho sugar trust Is again In full con trol of congress, nnd is corrupting the legislation now, as frequently In the past. It dictates every move made bv the Republicans In congress, Tho peo plo do not know It, hut behind tho in nocent proposition to tako a voto m tho senate on tho Cuban reciprocity bill, stalks tho sugar trust. Tho voto on this bill will occur in tho senate, under agreement, on December 1C. Tho bill and treaty can not possibly tako effect before tho "6th. day of Decem ber, and probably not until many dayo thereafter. Observe now tho reas-ons why tho senate, taking Its cue from the sugar trust, Is proceeding so leis urely. Tho sugar trust agents aro now In Cuba and have boon for tho past two weeks, engaged In tho pur chauo of all the cano sugar, ground and manufactured, int already owned by tho trxst, wlthi tho vie of bring ing this sugar Into the Unltol States in dor tho reduced tarl'f v 1: . .
