Populist in the State would have to
co-operate with and vote for men
who were trying to elect a goldbug
for President, or vote for electors
who would vote for a goldbug for
President. This we cannot con
sistently do. In our opinion, if such
a line of fight were attempted, our
party not only would not grow, but
our present party ranks would be
demoralized to some extent, while
on the other hand it would have the
effect of solidifying the Democratic
party as nothing else could.
i our Mate -committee held a
meeting recently to discuss the ques
tion. It was the unanimous opinion
of the committee that the only way
to obviate the difficulties mentioned
above, in the way of co-operation,
would be to have a non-partisan
electoral ticket, like our Snpreme
court ticket in our last campaign,
and that each man on the electoral
ticket should be pledged not to vote
for a gold man for President.
This would not only be consistent,
bnt would put us in the position of
co-operating for a great and funda
mental principle, and avoid being

Since that time the Democratic

with each other in lidding for 'he tvp-

do so. I note your silence as to
