grandstand play a regarding he strength of theAdams county ieket Last weeks stfya i The populists of Adams county have a iplendld ticket in the field and are going to win The republicans on the contrary have tittup weak ticket They are split up by liBCordant factions that are the result of the squabble and the late affairs in which Corning Gazette isynixed up ought to convince all honest republicans that the poI HlCttl atmosphere out there ought to be puri fled and the way to do It la by voting the pop ulist ticket Now this is the first intimation we have had that the pops have a ticket in this county But as this is from the chief mogul himself it must be trne Thus we are not to vote the Indepen dent ticket that the leaders here would make us believe but a genuine popu list ticket Surely this is ludicrous WeFwantto ask When did P H become a populist When did George Loonoy adopt the longhaired faith When did Ira PClark intimate that be had become converted to the wild eyed doctrine If it is a populist ticket why did the thirtylive populists in convention as sembled say Resolved by the peoples party of Adams county in convention assem bled1 that for the purpose of elevating county matters above party politics on resolutions rec otnmend the nomination of an indepen dent county ticket and we cordially invite all regardIdssof party to cooper ate with us in this movement E HOMAHY Com S D MERGER So these are popnlista Where then will Independents and those zealots who 6onnty matters above party politics get any Thisticket is notBO invulnerable by any means and

combination They arc of the opinion that Reed will not have nearly gomuch strength as he expects iu factv that he will not be in the race seriously They say the fight will be between MCT Kin ley and Allison and that develop merits in the east indicate that the west ern manwill have strong support and good chances to secure the New York and Pennsylvania delegations In fojr mer years the conditions have been such that the party has been forced to name a representative of one of the two great states York and Indiana This will not be the case next year The west is coming to Allison I know this

reasons maderiiiiii want P H Beyins in the treasury So he put the dembcratic party in his vest pocket and went up to the office of the populist par ty and said now weve been kept down Long enough do
