As was to be expected, the sounc money democrats are to be recognizec by the officials they assisted in electing More than that, their opinions ano ideas are to be remembered in legislation, and an effort is to be made to so shape matters as to hold them permanently within the party. Wm. Shaw Bowen, in the New York World, give the following interview with Mark Hanna, as outlining this policy: " I have had but comparatively brief conversations with Maj. McKinley since his election. Next week I expeet to meet him at Cleveland, and, as he has had time to think over matters, I presume he will have more details than I am at present aware of.

"Legislation will be required to secure the desired revenue, and Mr. McKinley will do everything in his power to secure it, as well as the legal estab lishment of a policy which will tend to put everybody at work. In all this he hopes and expects that he will be backed by patriotic men, regardless of party lines. " As for myself, I am not after any office, and will endeavor to attend to private business afl'airs which need my personal supervisión." I asked Mr. Hanna what democrats of note he had talked with on the subject of the future. "I do not wish to name them all," he said, "but I may inention Messrs. "W. C. Whitney and Abram S.
