He Diseusses Protectiotij Pensions and the Financial Question and Talks of Democratic Foreign Policies— An Opinion of Dolliver. A State Register special of the 5th« from Glidden, tells of Congressman Dolliver's speech at that place, as fol» lows: A stranger visiting this place yesterday afternoon . and evening would wonder where the crowds of people were coming from and for what purpose they were coming together. From north and south, from east and west, they came; in every kind of ye- hide they came. Road carts, carriages, express wagons and farm wagons, all full, crowded with people. Was it that the day of judgement had come? No and yes. The people were not gathering for the solemn and final account, but they, were coming for the purpose of attending the opening session of the judgment <if condemnation which shall beV pronounced ugoa the Democratic party by the voterr of this Tenth congressional 'district, as well as of the whole country in 1896. In- other words, the immense crowd was coming to hear Hon. J. P. Dolliyer show cause why the people of this' country should say to the democratic party, "Mene, mene, tekel; upharsiri." The meeting was held in Armstrong's opera house,' which usually seats about 800 people, but; last night we acted on the street car principle of "room for one more," until at least 1,000 intelligent and well' conducted people were crowded, into the hall, while many gathered on the stair and in the street to catch it might be an occasional word of the famous speaker. . ': ,'' ... ..•.;•<}•. •,--. ••• "You have heard Dolliver," , said a friend to your ^respondent; ''how did he : impress youj?" I shall have to give several answers ta that' question. He impressed me as being a very strong man physically, with 'an immense capacity for work and an astonishing amount of vitality; a magnificent physique; a voice as deep- toned and clear as a bell. Intellectually he is Saul-like, head and shoulders above his fellows, with a clear head and a faculty for arranging his thoughts in such a way as to make every point tell. HIS ABDBESS. He commenced by saying that he had fixed political views, and swore by the republican party because it was the only party which ever furnished this country with a satisfactory method of government. He then showed the prosperous condition of things in this country on the advent of the Democratic party in 1892, and the pitiable condition to which the maladministra- tion of this party had reduced all the important interests of the country. In accounting for the failure of the democratic party he showed that a principal reason was its failure to apprehend the spirit of the age, and especially the growth of national sentiment, citing in support of his position the course of the party in Hawaiian affairs and during English aggression in Central America. He made it clear to the whole audience that the principles and practices of the democratic party were like the bonnets of our grandmothers, possibly covering good people, but very old*fashioned and out of date, Other causes assigned by the speaker for the failure of the present administration were its tinkerjngs with the tariff, He showed, by many telling illustrations that the course in this particular was destructive of alj the manufacturing interests of the country, Its action op the pension question shows that in the method wbiph the government has dealt with, this quest' ion is shown a lack of sympathy with the survivors of the "great struggle" as well as of the feelings and wishes of the Nation in relation A1 • Another topic <rf touched upon was Qn this point Mi 1 , , knows the facts and . questions a great 4eaJ he roafle tjie puzzles Qf interest question. evidently iven tbese though^ for "flat mogey," of .rilY«r,». "agow bwV' Plain Wmf a , wayfaring fool* m$d. m wr ,so clew man; ogic, is certain to gain many victories over the Philistines, who seek to destroy our industrial life bv the policies Of free trade. Mr. Dolliver took a unique method n dealing with those who think that ;he laboring class in this country is worse off now than ever before* He isked men of various occupations to rise in the audience and testify as to the sca\ s |bf wages received before the war and since, especially at the present ;ime. A good tnany testified, and .hey agreed in their testimony that wage earners are in a better condition -hese late years, especially under re- ?Ublican regime, than ever before. Our congressman gave us a great ipeech in a gentlemanly manner, and le has brought light to many who were in political darkness and shadow of death. With sudh leaders as Dolliver, there can be no doubt of the ultimate issue n the coming conflict. The close will find the G. O. P. again leading the Nation in the ways of prosperity and peace. SUICIDE AT RUTHVEN. Irnest Rogers Grows Tired of Living and Takes His Life by Hanging. Emmetsburg Reporter: Ernest Rogers, a sixteen-year-old boy, committed suicide at Ruthven by hanging last ?riday night at about 9:30 o'clock. For some years he has been subject to despondent moods and has been heard to (my that he would kill himself. Friday he was with his father in the country attending to some -work and when he had eaten his supper he put on his hat and went out. His father supposed that he had gone to a near neighbor's and would be back in a shore time, but wheu it grew so late he jecame alarmed and went in search of him. He went to a feed mill that was near, and going in, he was met by the sad spectacle of the dead form suspended by a cord from a rafter above. The building was low and the beam from which he had hung himself was not so high but what his feet could have touched the ground had he not drawn them up in the struggle. Help was called and the body cut down but ife was extinct and it is thought that 36 had been dead two hours. Coroner Henry was called and held an inquest and a; verdict in accordance with the above was rendered. The boy's mother was absent in Boone county visiting and the body was kept until Monday fpiytyiriar in order;; that she might fe^pn h6me,iri time for the funeral: 5-*.- i- — ..•'• • "' ' " - , Don't Tobacco Spit or Smoke Your . , Life Away.
