that Hancock's nomination and his

Northern votes, that no amount of
forced enthusiasm can cover up.
Hancock does not represent the
solid Southern Democracy, any

To be sure this party of the
South has a respectable following
at the North. 'I'llere is, however
this obvious defference between
tho southern and northern democ-

the South primarily that they may
have political power, tl e North
that they may have political place.

have help from the North to be
successful. To secure this help the
spoils of the victoiy are promised

arrangement, but sooner or later
the good and patriotic men of the

they have sold an invaluable birth-
