A Washington, D. C, difpatch of
March 13, says: "It is a fact that
democratic members of congress
are taking heart again. The gloom
and depression which for several
months has prevailed democratic
circles has lifted perceptibly lately,
and gatherings of democrats are
becomii g more frequent and lively.
"This chango of feeling on the
part of the democrats has been
brought about by tho great popu
larity which envelops tho person
ality of Senator Morgan. The
press all over the United States
seems to have taken a fancy to
Morgan, and ure making favorable
mention of him as a powerful can
debate for tho presidency. -This
boom is entirely spontaneous, not
having been "worked up" by the
senator and his friends, who are as
much surprised at it ns anybody.
"No matter on what ticket he
ran, Mtrgan could carry California,
on account of his merciless raking
of Collis P. Huntington. And it
is believed that he could carry
every Pncifi ; coast state excepting
Oregon on account of his being
among the most brlliant ndvoeales
of free Filver. He is immensely
popular in the South, and it is be
lieved he could carry cvory south
ern state. Tl trefore, while Till
man is looked upon favorably,
Morgan is coming to be considered
tho Moses who will lead the demo
cratic party out of the wilderness.
"Ther9 is now hardly any doubt
that tho national democratic con
vention will pronounce for the Iron
coinage of silver at tho ratio of 16
to 1. Even the "sound money"
democrais now admit the probabil
ity of this action."
