Of rrBTBITT v.

Two tricks of the Kepubliean
mauagers have become very patetit,
and those who read their cunningly
edited campaign book should look
with much allowance BfMMa it*
claims and statements.
One 8tatement that they have
8hrewdlvlaunched,and which has not
the slightest foundation of truth m it,
is the cxpression cf fears that if Brvan
carriea the country the Oemocrats
will wiu tiu- Haaahi by a bbbbII
majority. The conclusion is drawn,
notwith8tanding the load claims of a
few weeka ago, nowsuddenly BaoOBBC
eilent, that there is dhBfff that
the money ^uestion will be re-opened
and, in the event of Bryan's eleetion,
free silver will dominate the Senate
as well as the UouseanJ the Kxecu
tive. Nothing butan unprect dcnted
record of deaths among Sonatorsand
a complete turn-around among
legislatures in 6everal hopelesalv Be
publican states could achieve this
end, and the Kepubliean managers
know it well. But they have, nrver
thelesa.chauged their tuneof boasting
over hopelesaly fastening BJBOa this
country the gold standard, and in
iueincerity are seeking to frighten
the business intereats with a bugaboo
or display of free silver spectrea.
It JBhaliaaad and there ara good
reasona for giving it eredence?that
in aome localities, where umler exist
mg couditions it is not much l
fice to do ao, mills have been, and
are almoat daily closing down, with
a view to opening up just previous
to the November eleetion. Th ia ia a
beautiful campaigndodge,and will be
aa potent as milliuns of dollars of a
campaign fnnd. The owners tell
their employees that there ia aome
danger of Bryan's triumph, la whieh
event the mills would be cloaed for
good; that just now they would prefer
8uapending until there is some cer
taintythat it will be otherwise. Just
before eleetion they will resume,
upon the "contidence" thenie of cer
tain Hepublican succe8a; the half
starved operativea will be reinstated,
and, through gratitude to their bene
factor (the operator) and the fears
of threatened pennanent cloaing out
if McKinley doea not win, they will
march to the polls by hundreds aud
thouaanda, under the unconscious
lash of the money power and uiill
Our frieuds, the enemy, will poo
hoo the 8tatement, butwe have been
in the midst of it in yeara paat, and
aeen the miners of Petiiisylvania
impre8t in the same nianner and for
the 8ame purposes. What our eyes
have 8een that we believe, and what
has once happened BBB) happen
Theue seems to be much iutereat
throughout the State as to whether
the special session of the Legislature,
to be called for the purpose of pausing
upon the Conetitutional Convention
question, will take up any matters
of general legialation. We ussume
that if it will first atteud to the
Couveution matter, and do it iu
good shape, tbe people will have
little to say if it dabbles into other
legislation, though there is a pretty
general helief that enough harm is
done the State by biennial sessions.
Should anything transpire to raise a
howl? for iii8tance,like the Commis
sioners of Yaluation act?legialators
who favored taking np general legis
lation would have hot shot poured
into them by their constituents. lt
would 8eem, then, that tlu* ui.s,.-,;
course for the memhers to pnrsue
would be to have nothing else to
engage their minds or time but the
matter they weie called to act upon
?providing for a Constitutional
The planka in the Democratic

Kepublicans to repose upon.

at length the main iaaues, the princi

to be the leading issue.
lle aaid he was as strong for Free
Bilver at lfj to 1 as he ever waa, that
he believed in time it would again
come to the front, but now it was
dOffBBBBt and no legislation could af
fect it for the next four years. He
did not wish to deceive the Demo
crata by aayiug that if Bryan waa
elected we would enact free ailver
legislation, for it cannot be done, as
the Kepubliean Senate bars the way
during the coming term. The most,
ol his BpeaOB was devoted to impe?
rialism and trusts, which he aaid are
paramount to all other questions in
this campaign.
