General Cox's epcech on the legis.
lative bill late on-yesterday was the
ablest effort he. has made here.; It
was not only well prepared, but was
admirably delivered. It was so much
the better too because the speeches
of several Democrats including Mr

to the declared policy of the party.

ly complimented by discreet judges.

cation bill will endeavor to: get that
measure included . in ' any order of
