Littlefleld, who studied law with Abraham Lincoln, writes his recollections of his great mentor in the February Success. He tells this attractive bit of anecdote: - All clients knew that with "Old Abe" as their lawer, they would win their case if it was fair; if not, it was a waste of time to take it to him.

The Spanish War Journal 'accuses the Cu bans of ingratitude and its language would in dicate that it is anxious for the .Cubans to give, this nation an excuse for whipping them. It says: It would bo hard to find a peoplo as ungrateful and unworthy of respect as the Cubans. They are a contemptible lot of curs. After all the Americans have done for them, the lives we gave up for them and the suffering we endured for their sake, they want to turn us out of Cuba without any rights whatever, not even a coaling station. Those of us who served in Cuba know thom. I hope that when the time comes for us to "lick" thom for good and all the United States will allow the Spanish War Veterans to go there in a body and finish the task. When we whipped the Spaniards in Cuba, we did the work only half, for we ought to have licked the Cubans "to boot." They should be wiped off the earth. They all want ...

a m 5 ,mr" fiWfl? ijrv r, since the Spanish war, and now endorsed by so great an editor as Mr. Wattcrson,' is not only dangerous, but it is immoral. It is politically dangerous because it encourages the republican party to shirk responsibility for its sins and shield itself behind the pretense that it is work ing out the will of the Almighty; and it is immoral because it obliterates the distinction between right and wrong. The republican argu ment is built upon the theory that wrong done upon a large scale loses its evil character, and becomes an integral part of God's plan. It is in keeping with the tendency to call an embezzler a Napoleon of finance, provided the amount embezzled is large. Mr. Wattcrson has not in the past been in the habit of defending his position with the philosophy which he now employs. In former years ho was known as the special champion of " the star-eyed Goddess of Reform." When the democratic party went down to defeat, as it often did, he did not say: "God...

Senator Hanua has had abuse and calumny heaped upon him not only by the democratic party, but also by members of his own party, and the strictures of the latter are uncalled for and iu excusable. Mr. Hanna is an honest, conscientious Chris tian gentleman. He has stood by McKinley and the republican party through thick and thin, and lie has indicated by his great skill as an organizer, and his adroitness as a leader, that he is without a peer in this great American republic. Senator Hanna has made many sacrifices in order to stand at the holm of his party, and he has on ac count of his position been traduced shamefully. Only recently did the jealous-minded accuse him of selfish and dishonest motives in his atti tude in the Delaware senatorial struggle, but I am here to state that Senator Hanna is an honest man, not only, in business, but also in poli...

Mr. Evarts' argument was on the loftiest grounds, and it was he who succeeded in infusing something of the judicial spirit into what might otherwise have been strictly a political proceeding. A vacancy just then occurred in the office of attorney general, and Mr. Evarts went into President Johnson's cabinet for the remainig year of the term. The period was one of impor tant negotiations with England, Mr. Evarts' friend Seward still remaining at his post as secretary of state.

The Sprinfield, (Massachusetts) Republican, in a recent issue lias this to say: There is some speculation here and there in view of Mr. Bryan's opposition to the regular dem ocratic candidate for mayor of St. Louis, as to what he is up to. Judging from a letter concern ing the St. Louis contest which he wrote, it is a fair presumption that Mr. Bryan has determined to make the stiffest possible warfare against the reorganization of the democratic party by the Cleveland democrats, in the letter referred to he expressly stated that Wells should be defeated be cause his election would encourage every so-called reorganizer in the country. Mr. Bryan's course in this matter, together with his Commoner editor ship and the freedom of his editorial writing, would indicate that another democratic presiden tial nomination is of less moment to him than the defeat of the plans of the conservatives...

The second reason for calling attention to this letter is that it suggests what might hap pen if voters generally were as illiberal and as partisan as some of the so-called business men. There is as much reason why the ordinary citizen should refuse to patronize a store owned by a political opponent, or to purchase an article manufactured by one differing from him in political opinion, as there is for a business man to refuse to advertise in a paper which antag onizes his views on public questions. No prin ciple is sound which is not capable of general application. The principle adopted by the cor poration whoso letter is quoted would inject strife and bitterness into every business com munity. Bankers have sometimes refused loans to, or threatened to withdraw loaus from, persons holding opposite political views, without seem ing to realize that the application of the same principle by depositors ...

SI: ft. .1. :rir v . (fcfl bonds, the selection of county seats, and other important matters are usually decided by pop ular vote. The fact that platforms arc adopted by party conventions is conclusive proof that the voters have a right to know the candidate's views before they vote for him. Accepting this theory to be the correct one, it follows that a representative has no moral right to misrepresent his constituents.. Upon all questions covered by the platform, a repre sentative is bound by the platform. A public official who secures an office without intending to keep the platform pledges obtains office under false pretenses, and certainly to obtain an office by such means is as reprehensible as to obtain money or merchandise in that way. As a rule a representative is elected to office as the candidate of a party, and his platform applies the principles of the party to the questions then before thcpublic. If new questions arise after the election the representative is in duty bo...
