In the absence of an issue, logic or
mental activity of any kind, the
democratic party can always fall
back on abuse of Hanna.
Senator Wolcott said in his speech
at the Philadelphia convention that
“A democratic president could para
lyze the operation of the new cur
rency law as effectually as if it were
wiped from our statute books.”
Democratic success would reopen
the whole currency question and end
in a battle for irredeemable paper
money. No intelligent sound money
man can have a doubt on that point.
Judge Owen N. Denny, a Yamhill
county farmer, died suddenly last Satur

had an encounter with a savage bull
about two years ago, which affected his
nerves in a serious manner, and he never
fully recovered from the shock. A ytar

has since been gradually failing in health.
