The clipping herewith inclosed was re
ferred to me for identification as being
produced by me:
Down at Lamonl when the news of MoKln
ley's election was received, a gang of republi
can hoodlumB carried things on In an outrage
ous manner, even going so' far as to enter I
private premises owned by democrats and
carry outbuildings into the street and burn
them. This is all wrong. No one has a right
to destroy another's property simply beoause
he differs with you in politics, and the Lamonl
gang' not only violated all laws of decency, but
also the laws of the state and laid themselves
liable to proseoutton by their disgraceful acts,
No one at all familiar with the circum
stances to which that clipping refers,
should for a moment entertain the sus
icion of its emanating from my- pen.
because the details do not do I
justice in detailing the facts of their
recklesB behavior Becond, because my
critical quidnuncs knew, or ought to
know, that certain red taped satraps,
possessed of some ambiguous authority
manufactured an imaginary muzzle with
the intent that I should wear it on the
entrance and the exit of my thought
and word factory, and fearing this
should fail, they fabricated a four line

If I had written that item, sharp I
drawn as the rebuke is, I should have
Bbown that the influence which actuated
the reckless proceedings of that scene
was born of the imperialistic influence
which permeates the administration in
rumifications and finds lodgment in the
elements which compose and support
church and state policies. If it were not
so, the actuating spirit of that scene,
which assumed that "might is light,"
influenced by the tyranical domination
majorities, that conglomerate mass of I
saint and worldling, would not have
gone on with their work of destruction
in defiance of the inhibition, and plead
ings of the mayor, marshal and con
stable of the town.
One of the curious things in this case I
is that the local leaders of the dominant
party made no effort to second the ef
forts of the officers who were doing all
they could to establish and maintain
order and protect property.
The indiflerence of majority exubera
tion to the enforcement of good order,
the reckless indifference ana disrespect
for djscipline and personal rights, with
the riotous conduct, and the wanton I
destruction of property, are long and
rapid strides toward the development
of that bloodcurdling condition that
nerves men for the brutality of the
prize-ring and to coolly chain their
victim to the stake and light the faggot
of execrable torture to invade the
homes of the citizens for pelf and
plunder and carry unprovoked warfare
to foreign shores.

How to Cure Croup.
Mr. R. Gray, who lives near Amenia, I
Duchess county, N. Y., says: "Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy is the best
medicine I have ever used. It is a fine
children's remedy for croup and never
fails to cure." When given as soon as
the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough has developed, it will
prevent the attack. This should be
lorne in mind and a bottle of the Cough
Remedy kept at hand ready for instant
use as soon as these symptons appear.

much cheaper than, poor qualities sold elsewhere at a
