It now appears to be all right for
a Democrat to repudiate the party
platform or any part of it that he did
not prepare and vote for. If he wrote
a plank submitted it made a speech
for it and voted for it it would prob-

otherwise he is at perfect liberty to
do as he pleases and still claim to be
a party Democrat.

is for wagons loaded with the top sur

a hint that should be valuable to our
