of making tho Columbian a great success but there is an idea in Washington that too much of the public money is being expended by the Commissioners in merely laying but things If they are spending too rauoh money now what will the expenditure be a couple of yearVhence It is certain that Congress will view with considerable distrust the application1 for a Government appropriation for tho Worlds Fair

suited to frugal and econom ical people aud I believe it is safest in the hands of those who have been made strong and selfreliant in thoir citizenship by such denial and by the surroundings of

Demo cratic party true to Its creed will unalter ably remain attached to our plain and fru gal people when the question is raised whether our people shall have tbe necessities of life at a cheaper rate we are not ashamed to confess ourselves in full sympathy with the demand for cheaper coats and we are not disturbed by the hint j that this seouis necessarily to involve a cheaper manor woman under the coat When the promoter of a party measure which invades every homo in the land with higher prices declares that cheapness and nastiuess go together and tbe whole system ofcheap things is1 a badge of poverty for cheap merchandise moans cheap men and cheap men mean a cheap country we Indig nantly repudiate such an1 interpretation of American sentiment and when another one high in in his party councils who has be cpme notorious as an advocate of a contriv 1 anco1 to perpetuate partisan supremacy by outrageous interference with the suffrage announces that thocry for cheapness is we scornfully reply thattils speech does not indicate thp slightest cou ception oftrue Americanism I will not refer to other utterances of like import from i content myself with re calling tlio o of most
