[WELCOME TO SILVER RASKS. 2 President Clark, of the Silver League, Talks Plainly to Democrats. Allen W. Clark, president of the State Silver League, within the Democratic party, has Issued an address to the Democrats of the state in which he says: "It Is high time for the Democracy of Indiana to cesse condemning the gold Democrats or silver Republicans or independent Populists. It Is high (time, unless recriminations which are not being made—are desired, that one element cease Its unjust, ungenerous, Ill-timed and altogether unbecoming criminations of. the other in regard to events of the past. , "If the Indiana Democracy is to reap the victory next year she must set her eyes deliberately and firmly to the front, adopt the old-time Democratic platform modeled after the Chicago platform,nominate a straight Democratic ticket, Invite the support of all citizens who approve the platform and that ticket and make It as easy fcr a patriotic and self- respecting man In any one element now outside the party ranks to vote that ticket as for any other patriotic and self-respecting man in anyother element outside the party ranks to vote It. Proscription and Intolerance of all sorts must cease if Indiana Democrats are to live UD to their present duties and opportunities. To burn the bridge, the avenues of approach to the party, or to place a brand of any kind upon any honest and sincere man wbo flees Into our city of refuge • is undemocratic and un-American, unmanly and suicidal."
