Senator Vance, and will not join

Now, this Simmons matter will

it may result, the Democratic pir

It is no unusual tuing to hear

say '-Go Siow.''
They mean that a youug man
should not be precipitate, but
should deli berately consider lefore

l!ut it will not do to st r.ke a slow
gut and keep it. These are hus
tling tunes, aud the fellow who
oes slow will never get there.
We take it that Mr. Cleveland
was brought up under religious in
fluences, aud very often heard
those words oi caution, "Go slow,
my boy." He was at one time con
sidered ra'her last, but ihe fatherly
injunction "go slow"' seems to te
impressing him as a voice from
the grave that he LMunot disre

Somehow or other somebody is
making a mistake. The paople are
of opitnoo that the time to go slow
was prior fo and during the
Chicago Convention. The con

deliberation. 1: was then right to
go slow bu: the moment the demo

Gov. Vance has at last spoken for him

column of the average newspaper. He
declares himself opposed to Simmons and
gives his reasons He alleges that Mr.
Simmons went to Washington and inter-
fered in his appointments, and by this in-
terference defeated Gudger whom
Vance recommended for collector in his
own district and secured the appoint
ment of Kope Elias, over Gudger. He
gives as a further reason that Simmons
opposed his recommendation of Hale
for a Foreign appointment widt h was
virtually secured and which was higher.

Vance says that Simmons in this oppo

i The Senator savs lurthcr that for him

no charges against Mr. Simmons but
aside from charges that may have, been
filed by others his position is hostility on
account of the reasons given ubovc.
Vance's concluding paragraphs are.
