YARD CHEEKY. U. S. Hall is quoted in a late interview as saying that "if the Democratic national convention declared for silver, he would not accept a re-nomination for con- cress if it were tendered him unani mously." This is the most complete case of sour grapes" that we have ever known in olitics. For a con gressman, w ho has betrayed his con stitucnts like Riley Hall has, to talk that way, after having been repudiated at every voting precinct, including the one in which he lives, by his people is cheeky, and is no doubt intended to Jc the true state of his feelings. We have no doubt if the cross-ravs were ermittcd to permeate Riley's inward ness, they would show a willingness or the humblest Democrat in his dis trict to kick him vigorously if it would only mako him a silver man once more in full confidence of hi.? con stituents. If the national convention were to declare for a gold-standard. xiley would be no better off.
