The Day Is At Hand.
It is cowing, surely coming,
Even now I feel the breath
Of the breeze of early morning,
And I know the night of Death.
That has brooded o'er the nations
With its bondage and its blight,
As a blotted scroll is rolling
' Hack before the day or Right.

on business last Thursday.

Yes, the day is swiftly coming
When the slaves shall know
Oh, restore their birthright brothers.
Lest their arms be raised to smite.
Lest like some strong mountain tor-
Held by bars of straw and sand .
They shall rise and sweep the forgers
Of their chains from off the land.
Come and see the crust ye fed them,
While they made for you the day,
See their bed, a cheerless bivouac
By a cold, Unsheltered way.
Hut theif night is not eternal:
Sin and shame, and death and tears,
Shall not be the toilers portion
All the cycles of the years.
They have sown and they shall gather;
They have wept, but they shall
In the day adawning brothers.
There's the wheat and not the chaff.
Shout the glad, unselfish gospel
O'er the land from sea to sea.
That the day is even dawning
When the bond-slaves shall be free.
Free to labor, free from hunger,
Free from pestilence and crime,
Free to soar fro* mental dungeons,
Thro' the realms of thought subli me
Free to hear their gracious father
Speak from forest, tide and Clen ,
Free to tread where love will lead
Free to live the lives of men.
None can stay the cleansing torrej
That shall sweep from earth its hell.
None can quench the golden sunlight.
That shall soon the clouds dispel.
For 'tis coining, surely coming,
Swiftly coming all to bless;
O'er the earth shall reign triumphant,
Love and Truth and Righteousness.

was no Democratic reunion. On the
contrary, there was open and palpa-
ble democratic disorganization, panic
and route. ,
There are other conspicuous- facts
which may as well be recognized. In
the presence of the almost unexampl-
ed disaster which has fallen upon-the)
democratic organization at a time
when success ought to have been sure
U is plain that, of all the men who
mi^ht have been nominated at Kan-
sas city Mr. Bryan was the weakest
before the people.
It is plain that any one of a
dred sound money democrats stand-
ing upon a gold standard platform
and voicing other unmistakably demo-
cratic ideas would have received
more votes than Mr. Bryan received
It is plain that whatever policies
populistic republicans and so«alists
y alter ■•"-] propose as remedies for the
the superintend republicanism democrats can-
not be led to their support.
It is plain that no man involved

favorable circumstances, could bung
about a true fusion between element*
fundamentally antagonistic. Mf.
Bryan is defeated by democratic
votes, because democrats could not
be made to believe that his candidacy
represented anything better than it
did four years ago. All else has been
ignored. All other issues have been
postponed. Populism alone has gone
down never to rise again, let us hope,
with the assistance of anybody who
calls himself a democrat."
The Chronicle would never have
iupported Bryan except for the hope
of spoils. Now that there is nothing
to be got, it turns and rends him. lhe
paper agrees withM. Sterling Morton
that the party must be reorganized.
Well, go ahead with your reorganiza-
tion. The sooner the better. I lit
populists did not supuort the demo-
cratic party. They supported Mr.
Bryan, while they held his party
utter contempt. They will never sup-
port Mr. Bryan again so long as he
affiliates with the Democratic party.
But why does the Chronicle blame
Mr. Bryan for the defeat? I hey Pl
up democratic goldbugs for congress
in the most of the eastern states and
they were bowled over like nine-pins.
In Indiana, they put up the meanest
gold bug in the state for govenor on a
cowardly compromise platform and
the state was lost by the bigge* m.
iority in fifty years.

1 longer fraternize with a party whose
