JUDGE SPENCER ELECTRIFIES MIS AUDIENCE
A Comprehensive Argument, Based on Sound Judg
ment, that Touches the Heart of the People.
Again, on Wednesday evening of lust
week, did the Kepnhlicans of I-akeview
have a routine iin't't in jj and interesting
entertainment a meeting attended by
groat enthusiasm and a wonderfully at

Susanviile was the speaker, and that he
touched the heart of his listeners was
evidenced by the spontaneous outburst-

upon any important question.
He reminded the voter that a certain
grave responsibility rctcd in him when
he went to the polls on election day to
cast his little ballot ; that he should for
get party and party principles and vote
for what he thought was right and just,
and for the best interests of his wife and
children, himself and his country ; that
he should look to ti e future welfare ot
his i'amilv ; study the issues clo.-i ly and

illustrations that were wonderfully plain
ami comprehensive. Never han the
money question heen more i.learly ex

it. He demonstrated the wisdom of the
sound money or gold standard policy
and showed the fallacy of the free coin

metal in every nation on the face of the

pledged to redeem that silver with gold
