when they are dominating and over

So it was with regard to this
doctrine of property lieing robbery.
Proudhon taught this as a principle;
bis discipie, Bakunin, carried maiteis
a step further, and sought to apply
the principle logically. If property
is robbery, be said to himself, then
all who own property are robbers
and enemies of society all such
must be killed. So be began to

Our democratic contemporaries
are shedding rivers of bnuy tears
over , the announcement that the
National-Salt Co. has put up the price
of "common table salt of a fair

told, "controls directly 1)5 per cent
of the salt output of the country and
is able to dominate the remaining

our democratic contemporaries essay
to answer these questions they will
please remember tbe rule to not all
speak at once.
Just bow much likelihood there is
of getting together the discordant
elements that masquerade under the
common name of democratic party
may be inferred from the following
remark of the Eugene Guard, a
thoroughly Bryanite paper, and one
that undoubtedly represents the
views of a lurgc majorit' of so
called democrats: "When the last

Den M. Dickinson, Cleveland's postmaster-general,
and a few more of
his standard of democracy, may re

However, the vote cast for Bryan is
sufficiently large to convince sny

reorganization as the party would

Bryan's electoral vote is 135, or four
less than the total of what was formerly
called the solid South. The capital of
the democratic party is considerably im
paired by the boy orator experiment.
The Chicago News says: "Scientists
say that falling over a precipice is the
pleaeanteat kind of a death. Politicians,
however, who have fallen over an elec
toral precipice do not agree with the

Knocked Out I'ettigrew.
John P. JVltgcld say 8 that tbe
election of President McKinley
"means a triumph of bribery and
corruption." Most of tbe other
Bryanite leaders are manly enough
to take their defeat for what it is
the verdict of tbe people but in
Altgcld's nature there is a vein of
malice, bitterness and vituperation
that never fails to make a character
istic display of itself at a time like
this. Probably if the vote for Mc
Kinley had been unanimous Altgeld
would have said the same thing. To
his jaundiced imagination every man
who votes for the opposite ticket is
"bribed" or "corrupted" or "co
erced" or otherwise dishonest.
The Hon. John Jacob Lentz of
Columbus and Cceur d'Alene was
the fiercest spirit in tbe Bryan com
pany. Among many good squeakers
and gibberers he was tbe best. He
outcapcred all the other anti- imper
ialists. He outjabbcred all tbe other
anti-militarists. He was the loudest
roarer in tbe mcnagetics. That the
constituents of so remarkable a
statesman should be ungrateful
enough to refuse to re-elect him to
congress will be remembered with
horror by all students of ingiulitude.
New York Sun.
A merry and rhythmical echo of the
notes of the campaign victory has
struck this city, says tbe Chicago Chron
icle. 'On last Wednesday Chairman
Hanua, of the Republican national com
mittee, remained quietly at his home
on the outskirts of Cleveland. When
he arrived at his office in Cleveland
on Thursday morning Senator Hanna
found awaiting him a dispatch from
William Barbour, of New York, reading:
"Tell me, Mark, oh tell me true.
Hat thou knocked out Pettigrew ?"
As Mr. Hanna had included South Da
kota in his western tour df speech-making,
and as the defeat of Petti-grew was
to him, as to thousands of other repub
licans, one of the most agreeable inci
dents of a sweeping victory, Mr. Hanna
quoted this dispatch to a correspondent
of a New York newspaper, and it was
published in the Thursday edition. It
now appears that Mr. Hanna was
tempted into sending a metrical reply
by wire. Mr. Barbour writes to the edit
or as follows :
"I did not expect to see my telegram
to Senator Hanna in the next edition of
your paper. If the leader of the Repub
lican party gave you my maiden verselet
to print, I feel justified in giving ton
his reply, which reads:

to enter into competition like the mer

warp the truth for living like others; he
doesn't have to depend upon donations

short, he can be tbe most independent
man on God s green earth if he manages
his affairs on a business like manner.
He has more time and oppoitnnitles for
improving ids mind ; he has less allure
