greater fraud; one that Mr. Wallaee ha
fostered and allowed to tako root in hl:

says "It is not now knmcn wliere he (Iiis

tion tliat he got her in Vermont ; aiul as
she probably eanie froin the region where
the Freeinan Messenger had been stand
ing for a nuinbcr of years, the theory
that she was by that horsc took its rise
from that suppoed clmiiiistance" ! You
scc at once that nothing whatever is
here stated. The sentenee Is suggestive
of nothing so niiicli as of Thad. Stevens'
reply to the member who asked hini eon
ccrning one who was inakhig a very long
prosy spceeh. 'What docs he wantV"
"He wantsbrains." Yet thls "theory" that
arose from the "supjioscd uireunistanee,"
that there was a "tradition" thatthls niare
"probably eame" from a "region" (a
whole.State) in whleh the Freeinan liorse
onee sioou, is ine oniy grouiKt upon
whlch rests the absolute aiul uiiqualilled

Mr. Allen AV. Thomson of Woodstock

Thc Foot Horsc was a dapple hor.-e wlth

Mr. l'aine said tliat ho showed better than
