Dont lose sight of the fact that
since Grovet Clevelands election
new confidence has been inspired
in investments in the south and
thousands of people and money are
rolling into this favored section
that would not have come under
a republican tdministration whose
very existence has depended on
the abuse of the South and South
ern people Now whether we get
justice in the silver matter wheth
er we get justice under the tariff
revision or in any future legisla
tion of any kind justice is assured
under the laws we now have and
we will fare as well as the other
parts of tho Union
The knowledgo of this fact all
over the country is sufficient to
usher in a period of prosperity in
