Cuspadores ! enameled at that! for a democratie administration! The Jeflersonlan simplicity of Cleveland should cause all of his employés to use a common pine box ülled with saw dust; in no event should they rise above spittoons. The new Labor party continúes to grow notwithsbinding the frantic efforts of our democratie friends especially, to pi event. Some republican papers very foolishly deprécate the formation of such a party. The masses, the laboring people are terribly In earnest, and they wilj never stop until they accomplish something.

An article In a recent iesue of the Adrián Times, purportlng to be the words of one of the offleers of the Southeastern Ann Arbor delegation coming home and giving "garbled reports" of the meeting which decided to lócate the last encampment at Adrián after Ann Arbor iiad made a bid for it, and ends up by predicting that tüere will be a big fight for the next encampment between Ann Arbor and Jackson, and says that between the two places Jackson ought to come out ahead. All right, my dear. Ann Arbor is wllling. She will enter into no contest for the encampment. While the people of Ann Arbor would be very glad to entertain the asaociation, and would give the old boys in blue a right royal welcome should they decide to come ■ here, yet they will not urge them to come if they don't want to, so just keep your shirt on.
