make speeches for the Repub lican ticket he is wasting a vast amount of energy and the committee burning some money He is rambling and Incoherent and often obscures his meaning by the use of the wrong word The Fresno Republican recently reproduced paragraphs from speeches made by George Knight and Tom Ttozler with the evident Intention of showing how what sometimes passes as oratory looks in cold type Some of Dr Gierings mixed metaphors would he quite an addition to that collection In one of MB pictures of the prosperity that has prevailed under Republican rule he paid n glowing tribute to the sweet singing echo of tbe music of the He admitted that Mr Bryan ia an honest man but charged him with hynotiilng the American people He said he is a fascinating orator but can make more trouble in ten minutesthan all the prize fighters and bulldogs in America As he furnished no dia gram we dont pretend to grasp the full meaning or the aptness ot the il lustration warned the audience of the In sidious effects of a woman and some capitalists in England to influence the election by the contribution of money to the Bryan campaign fund He called to mind the fact that dur ing the Cleveland administration fif teen banks failed and hard times pre vailed but in referring to the fact that all the banks were closed for weeks during the Roosevelt adminis tration he designated it as a very pe culiar condition and not as a holi day which Governor Gillett called it He declaredthat unless Mr Taft is elected therewill be a revolution in this country and In deploring the pos sibility of the

established camp on the hills south of the old camp ground in a surprisingly short time every thing was in fairly good order The trip down was uneventful ex cept that Corporal Eddie Smith be came so interested perhaps fascinated would be the better word with what he saw in Oakland that he suffered a lapse of memory and it was necessary to form a detail to restore him to the company However he was rescued from his fair admirers without any serious results We have read about the slow trains in Arkansas but I am sure they woulc pale into insignificance if comparei wSth a S 1J special or excursion train A mud turtle or a cricket could make one of them look like an on team Altogether we were on the road twenty hours The experience was so out of the or dinary and the soldier boys were BO exhilarated with aheac that most of them were wide awake a the way down and the few who wantec to sleep were denied the privilege There was no abatement of the enthu siasm on the arrival the tents were quickly pitched and a model camp es tablished It may seem out of place for me to throw any bouquets but I think it Is to make a Ipt of noise and do they due l hone to tnat on tin can to cneev
