Willson has been the second .choice of a good many of our Democrats and the first choice of the balance. He is a clean man and one that will command the respect of all parties and aught to receive the support of of every Democrat and many Republicans who are disgusted with the brazen frauds by which the nominations were stolen at Chicago. The seclection of Gov. Maeshall of Indiana for vice president is one that all can ap plaud. Let us all forget any harsh words that have been uttered during the contest and unite in electing the Democratic ticket next fall. With a united Democ racy in the county, state and nation a great victory is assured in November. But the enemy is not going to give up without a struggle—we have to meet and overcome a foe that is entrenched in power and drunk with spoils. ARENA NEWS. K. W.
