Colorado Senator Tells Why lie Supports . the 'Republican Ticket, Denver, Col., Aug. 1.—Senator Wolcott, whose friends succeeded recent)} in. carrying the republican state committee' tit opposition to Senator Teller and the strong pro-silver element in Colorado, has issued a statement to ton »ot«rs of this cornmonwt;al-ti!,"iii which he says' that during his seven yeirn' service in the senate his-vote had been identical with ''Ihat of what is knswn as tho silver senators.' The financial plank of the republican platform, he confesses, is far '-from satisfactory to him, but it contains, however, a pledge to the furtherance of bimetallism by international agreement. On nil other issues except that of finance he gives the republican party his hearty approval. .The democratic party, the senator -says, nominated Mr. JJryon upon n 'platform the financial portion- o. J which was .cver3'thiiig'that could be desired, and the rest of it everything that is, in his'opinion, undesirable ace 1 hostile to the.interes'ts of our. country. He declines to stand upon this platform and vote for this candidate, even wfth the alluring free coinage plank. The senator Says he cannot abandon his belief in the policy of projection: that the supreme cour.fc is n purs and able tribnnnl, and he will ...not help smirch it; that the "recent republican congresses'' have been neither wasteful nor extravagant,-and he mustclecline to certify to a statement whielv he knows (o be untrue, and that he cannot condemn the 1 president of the United States for the steps he took to put down the grent railway strike'in Chicago, when the sheriff was powerless and the governor failed to perform his dirty. Tie concludes ns follows: Because. therefore, T believe that free coinage will come through the. etTorts ol the republican party, and because the democratic and populistlc platforms, except on the .money question, are odious and hostile to tho welfare of the country, I shall not cast my voto for Mr. B^yan."
