He ran the gamut of public olliceand'evcry where met the expectations of those who gave him their support. He served in the Union army for three years during the civil war, beginning as a second lieutenant and finally winning the brevet of brigadier general. He was a lawyer of great learning and expe rience, one of the ablest of those who have oc cupied the White House. As an orator, he deserves a place among the b?st of his generation.

EEZE2 6 Mr. Carnegie's Gift. The sotting aside of $5,000,000, the income of which is to bo used for the benefit of old or unfortunate omploycs and their dependents, is so unusual as to attract widespread attention. Nothing that Mr. Carnegie has done will win more commendation from the people generally. This recognition of his obligation to his em ployes' is creditable to him and un example to others. While the amount invested for the ben efit of his former workmen constitutes but a small proportion of his accumulations, oven a small per cent is more than most large employ ers of labor are disposed to return to the wage earners. If such benefactions were more com mon tho relations between labor and capital would bo more harmonious.

But he gets even nearer to the republican lino, if possible, when ho says, "The people want a safo and conservative administration of public affairs." That is just exactly what the republi cans always promise. "Safo and conservative" everybody wants a safe administration and con servatism is an almost universal trait. But the republicans prate so much about "safety" and "conservatism" that a democrat- ought not to use the terms without explaining what ho means by them. An administration that would bo "safe" for the monopolies would not bo satisfac tory to those who are the victims of every private monopoly, and an administration so conservative that it would not undo anything that the repub lican party has done would bo no better than a republican administration.

The populists, v hile holding to their belief in the government ownership of railroads, have given their influence to all legislation which tended toward the regulation of railroads or the securing of reasonable rates. On the money question the populist party has done a great deal of educational work. It has steadfastly defended the greenback against the attacks of the national banking interests and has insisted that the right to issue money is a sover eign function of government which cannot safely bo delegated to private individuals or corpora tions. The democratic party has in two conven tions supported this doctrine, although differing from the populists on the subject of redeemabil ity. The democrats advocate a legal tender green...
