for miaaionary work out thoro, and tho
apeechea of Shorman, Butterworth and
othors cannot fail to bo effectivc iu

Tnu Boafon Heraldmya: " Wo doubt
if thcro ia a compotont political ob

nmong thcm know this is coming as
woll aa do tho rcst of ua. If wo judgo
tho prcsont by tho past, it ia not unrca
eonablo to anlicipato thatit will tako on
very heavy proportiona."
Tnis Boaton Advertiser truly aays:
" Every day tho country haa frcah proofs
of tho contraat botween tho knowiedgo
and state8manship of tho sound-monoy
candidale on the one hand and tho
frothy declamatiouaof the choap-moncy
candidato on tho othor. McKinley ia
ablo to tnake spoeches evory day, and
often many timea a day, without com
mitting one blunder, without uttering a
aingle platituue, and without rcpeating
himaolf in the ca8ence of what ho has
to say; becauso ho is, in tho lirst
placo, a man of imtnenso intcllcctual
capacity, aud in the second placo, has
bcon, during all his maturo life, a closo
and cager aludcut of all departtnents of
tho great scionco of civil legielatiou and
Tlic Trliiiiipli of n Cnusc.
The verdict of Maino is even more
emphatic than that of Vermont, aud
more aigniiicant, for iu Maino thero
haa been for yeara a populiat elcment
worth counting that ccrnes down trom
the days when tho grcenbackera hcld
the balanco of power and in a fuaion
with the democrats wero ablo to olect a
goveruor. In Vermont, on tho con
trary, the populista havo been bo fow
and far between that they have not
boen worth considoring iu forecastiug
rosulta. In Vermont the linca aro ol
waya clearly drawn, and a Vermonter
ia aeldom in " tho iniddle of tho road."
Tho democrats of Maine have been
buoyed up by tho hopo that nover
comcs to tho Vermont democrat ovon
iu drcama. It was natural to expect
that this year the "regulnr" demo
crats would mako tho great light of
thelr lives. In Maino alono among
tno JNOW iiugianu states ia tuero a tree
eilvcr aentiment viaiblo to tho naked
With thia to build on, with tho dem
ocratic candidato for vicc-president a
cuizen oi Maino, it was a reaaonablo
concluslon that tho Maiue froo-ailvor-
itca would preaeut a front that would
bo at lcaat impreaaivc. As it is, they
nppear to havo thrown only a fow
thousand votes more than Mr. Johnaou
received inl894, whon tho bulk of tho
dcmourats look to tho wooda. Asautn
ing that tho renublican plurality is in
round numbora ilfty thousand, it breaka
all Maino records, for tho createst
heretoforo was that of Govoruor
Cleaves iu 1801, 38,078. Thtiugh many

Tho Nntionnl Guard of Colorado has
bcon callcd out. Thero is riotiug at
Lcadvillo. Tho railroads runnlng
toward that clty had to bo patrollcd to
keop tho trains carrying troopa from
being wrccked. Ilouaes wero burnod,
flromon who tricd to subduo thu llamcs
woro shot down, mluers imprlsonod by
strikera on attempting to fleo from
burning buildinga wero flred upon,
and explosiona of dynamito killed or
wounded many poraons. Altogothor
Leadvillo has been having a llvely ox
hibition of tho uprising of tho maascs
ngainst tho classes which Mr. Bryan
hns bcon talklng so much about for
eonio weoka.
At this distanco from tho scono of
trouble it ia difllcult to get at tho ab
stract juetico of tho controversy be
tweon tho mine-owners and their em
ployes. But that quostion is not preae
ing at present. The importaut thing
is that tho minors and the owners can
not agreo, and, after a period of s traiued
rolations, the former havo undertaken
to dofend their opiuions with gunpow
dcr and to forco them on others with
dynamito. It is said ou behalf of thc
owners that the sheriff , the governor,
tho courts aud tho novvspapers nro iu
league with the atrikers, aud that thoro
ia no usounder those conilitions of their
making any concesaionB, for they would
only bo oponing the way to greator do-
manus backed by llie samo lntlucnces.
Accordingly they have rofused to treat,
arsou and murder havo followed, and
the governor, whatever his sympathies,
has been compelled to call out tho
troop?, and tho stato of Colorado will
have to pay tho cosl ot it all.
sucn au outbreaK ia creatiy to be uc-
plorod. No part of our common coun
try can bo civon over to violenco aud
disordcr without affcctiug tho honor
onu good name of tho wholo nation.
Our glory has been that wo wero a aelf
governing and law-abiding peoplo, not
a collection of barbarians who uettlcd
thoir difforences by forco and burued
down a neighbor's property iu tho ou
deavor to collect a debt or obtain a
gratuity. Troubles guch aa have dis
turbcd Leadvillo are at onco a blot ou
the country's famo aud a cause of dis
trust. Tho question ariaea lf thia new
millenuium which Mr. Bryan proachea
ia the bucccsb it is cracked up to ue.
Colorado ia full of adherenta of hia
creed, who look to tho time whon overy
poor peraon ahall have all tho monoy ho
wanta and all men shall dwell in plenty,
happineas and brothorly love. Out in
Colorado they have been puttinc that
creed in prnctice. It is truo thoy havo
not had Iree suver, but the suventcs
havo controlled tho stato "overnment,
nnd tho principles of tho Chicago plat
form havo beon applied through sov
oral years to domestic affairs. And yet
wo see a riot thero, aud, morcover, seo
tho nuthorities calling out troops to re-
strict tho right of thc peoplo to enforce
tneir wui againet corporations and piu
tocrats in a way that rocalls tho Chi
cao doings of 1894.
Then, it will bo remembored, work
mon had troublo with their employers,
aud riota rcsultcd. In that cnao the
riotors happoned to do moro thau dc
etroy property which, in fnct, tho
stato authoritiea, in contraat to thoso of
Colorado, pcrmitted them to do quito
freely. They stoppod tho mails aud
lnteriorea with luterstato commorco.
Then, when the law olllcors of tho
Uniled States tried to prevcnt thia ob
struction of Federal law, they rebelled
ana compelled tho prcaident to boiiu
troops againat them. That action of
the govornmont in enforcing Federal
law was condemned by tho convention
which nomlnatcd lirvan for nrcaideut
Tho plank denouncing that "arbitrary
interf eronco by Federal authoritiea " is
one of tho moat conspicuou? in tho
democratic froo-Bilver platform. That
platform ia eaid to havo tho cordial sun
port of the majority of tho votors of
Colorado. In that caao thoy ought to
rebuko thoir govoruor for calling out
troopa. Tho Leadvillo riotors nro doing
no moro itiau tuo uiucol'o noters dld
Thoy aro only broaking stato law whoro
tho others broko Federal law, and " ar
bitrary iutorferonco" by stato troopa
to enforco stato laws is as much to bo
dennunced as "nrbitrarv intcrforenco '
bv United States troopa to enforco
Uniled States laws. If tho pooplo of
Colorado liko that sort of thing and tho
candidalos who prench it, thoy ought to

Thoro waa a nurac in tho room with tho
