Judgo Parker. In his speech to the
editors at Esopus struck tho Ropubil-

riotous expenditure of public monoy
nnd rank corruption incldont there-
unto. It was the declaration In tho Ropub
llcan platform that the party lias dis-
played "a high capacity ror rule and
government vhlch has been made
even nioro conspicuous by tho Inca
pacity and infli alty of purpose shown
by Its opponents" which formed the
text of J:deo Parker's arraignment.

burdensome and given tho county tho
reputation ot being a "nigger" county.
