ioto harder lighting has more than once
been successfully put through in politics,
and Mr. Hanra may le trying it again.
The silver people are not giving figures,
but they say Republican defection wil
give them most of the middle Western
states, unless there is a change of senti
ment between now and election day. On
the other hand, Republicans just from
those states say there is already a change
ot sentiment and that the defection is not
greater in one party than in the other, and
that McKinley will carry them all.
There are ominous mutteiings concern
ing the management, or rather the alleg
ed lack oi' management of the Bryan cam
pain, which may break into an open
storm in the mar future if there isn't a
change. It is charged that the campaign

too much inclined to b a rainbow chaser
to be allowed to control things. They say
that it was Bryan'3 disposition to chase
rainbow instead of sawing wood that dis

promised to help manage the campa'gn,

It is said now that the Republicans will
not endorse A C. Shuford, Populist nom

roused Renublican wrath.
The feeling between the Russell and
Doekery faction of the Republicans has by

Russell finds a Doekery man he gives the
latter's name to his "Man Friday," unci
says ''put tiim on the blacti list; we want
to remember his nam?.'
Democratic Slate Chairman Manly say
he thinks electoral fusion with the Popu
lists will be arranged in 10 days. Popu
lists do n -t say so. The fact is there is a
revolt against fusion and it is in the tanks
of both parties. There is plenty of plain
talking being done.
