growing since the close of the It has en abled us to perform the magnificent feat of rapidly reducing the public a policy which has excited the admiration of the greatest statesman of But why is not this surplus applied to the payment or purchase of the public debt Whose fault is it that it accumu lates in the Treasury Plainly the fault of whose Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to apply this surplus at any time to the reduction of the public It he had followed the example of his he would weekly or without proclama tion or have purchased and re tired the public debt under the plain provisions of existing The Senator concluded his speech by remarking that he was in favor oi tariff reform with protection of native indus He thought the tariff should be revised in order to reduce

seen her met by strong But now the President ol the United States declares that these defen ces were to be The British press had at once proceeded to self congratula tions and to strip off mercilessly the Presidents The plain truth is that England has never liked our protective simply because it prevents her from obtaining complete control over the markets of this She wants the opportunity to undersell in these markets the products of American as she would have if the Free Trade theory were put into This is the reason why the British press was so happy over the Presi dents The message was ac cepted as good news to The in the course of his speech said that he was in favor of repealing the tobbaco the tax upon all spirits used in the mechanical arts and manufactures of this and also duties upon ar ticles the importation of which will not interfere with the successful production of like articles at He did not think it expedient to repeal the tax on since this would involve too large a reduction of As to the surplus the Senator said that he was not at all He thoroughly believed in reducing this but did not propose to abandon the protective system for that in this he was not prepared to follow the Presidents recommenda If there was an honest purpose on the part of the Democratic Party to get rid of this he said that it could be done without Some of it might be expended

opportunity to vote directly for the At the primary each man votes for the men whom he wishes and not tor delegates who may vote for the candi dates of his or may After his vote has been cast at the pri mary it cannot be Just as he cast it must be counted and cast in It gives all the voters a chance in the nomination of Under our present after a plurality of those present at the primaries have elected the others have noth ing further to but the new system gives all a for should the candi date who received the highest vote at the primary be where more than one is to be as in the case of Commissioners or Audi or his name be then the candidate receiving the next highest vote takes his and so on so long as there is a man before the Convention who received one vote at the This gives the minority a chance as well as the It does away with all trucking and trading in The candidate cant control the or manip ulate the The people settle the whole matter at and the Conven tion is held only to count and cast the It is better than the Crawford county enacted and why were men allowed to pass bottles around freely to be emptied by willing lips and why were boys al lowed to have and drink the stuff pub licly and why was the solicitor for the druggist allowed to give his wares to whoever wished to sample them To the benighted female comprehension it would seem as though it was the duty of the officers of the law to see that the law is In the words of a learned It is the duty of the local officers to examine the find the make and arrest the system in that no candidate can be nominated by simpiy receiving a plur ality of the votes cast at the He must be second or third choice in enough districts to represent a ma jority of the whole vote cast for Presi dent at the
