Which leads the New Nork World to add: "Cleveland's two L's, therefore, have, contrary to the laws of poker, beaten Blaine's three B's." The proper course for the self-indulgent saints is to turn in at once and aid in enforcing present enactments against polygamy. Let them abolish it in their own households, to begin with. They can fight polygamy now, and b beginning at once they may implant in the gentile breast some faith in their sincerity. There is no cause for apprehension in the outlook either for Democrats who follow the wishes of the president and the speaker or those who incline to the more circumscribed notion of .Sir. Randall.
