Public sentiment will begic to grow against him and his party from tbe day that he steps into Cleveland's sbtes. WILD REPORTS ALREADY nZGlTX. The mouthy and muddling Demmy papers have already begun to dissem inate wild and inexpressibly foolish and false reports. A late sample is a In nearly every ejeecli in iue iam an.paign Senator Pritcttard gave the j.uhlii: to understand t hat he had hanged hi views. He is reported not only hy the newspaper-, but by thoxewho heard him upeak, to have ied expression li" the following: I have rhanged my mind about the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of l- to 1. I now think that it would he disastrous I favor it if we can get it by international agreement. I stand liat-footed tin ev ery plank in the St. Louis platform, the financial planW and all." Again h is reported in a speech in Metro politan hall to have used the follow ing language. 'The free silver people want free whiskey, free trade and free diver and everything free but free negroes." In short when be did not keep silent, he ridiculed and belit tled free silver, which is only one of the lirst steps to unanHal reform, more money and relief. (.'an any Populist support a man for the highest and most important legis lative ollice in the country, who ex presses such views? ISesides the leading Republican paper in the State, editorially set forth the fact that Sen ator I'ritchard had changed and would in the future stand squarely by the "sound money" platform of the na tional Republican party, but that be vould vote for free silver till tbe ith of next March. The editor stated hat lie had a letter from Senator I'rifchard on tbia question and that he was stating his position. The above was understood to be his misitiori lv the State committees of s " both the Populist and Republican parties last summer. And this is why there was no co-operation on the Sen ator and liovernor. The Peoples I'art was very anxious to make such - . w ., il . e us the (Jovernor, i 'i it.- ; mittee by :i unani r "' to support Senator , man holding such : L'irn for the Gover nor. So the two committees co-oper ated as far as the.r ctuld and left each party to put up iti own candidate for the Senate. It is now reported that Senator I'ritchard is ready to change his posi tion again. Col. Skinner has a letter from him, vhich he is showing around to some of the members of the Legis lature. We are informed by those who have seen it that Senator Prichard Is now ready to pledge himself to vote for free silver if it is not offered as a rider to tariff and "other matters." This means that Ssnator I'ritchard puts tariff and other matters over and above the financial question. When a rider is put on any bill a man votes for or against the rider according to whether he thinks it of more or less importance than the other question In the first place no Populist could afford to vote for Senator I'ritchard occuping this position, even if he bad not changed last summer. In the sec ond place, no Populist can afford to vote for a man for Senator who has Jlopped around as he has, no matter what he pledges now The Peoples Party has vigorously and justly condemned the Democratic party for its inconsistent and Hopping course on the financial question. There are dozens of prominent men whose course and changing positions have been what his has; every Populist in the State has condemned their course as unreliable and unsafe. No Populist can maintain himself or Ins party unless he takes the same r, J toward Senator I'ritchard. Anv Populist who i Satisfied with bis course need never to have joined the Peoples Party, because he would have been at home in either of the old par ties. We warn each Populist who believes in his principles and loves his party to consider these matters be fore he makes a fatal blunder a blun der that will be'fatal to his party if his party is held responsible for his acts. for abetter and longer, and hence a more expensive system of public school. Then there is a demand for a Reformatory for youthful criminals which cannot.be begun for less than twenty-live thousand dollars. It is already stated that the ... . , penitentiary will require a larger appropriation than usual on account of the loss of crops from freshets and floods on the farms during the past There is-an imperative need the Senate. Col. Harry Skinner is re; ported as authority for this list. We do not believe the list correct, in fact we know t is not correct. The purported list is as follows : SENATE. J.
