Wta The Times please arise amd teil wlnat riilits have baen. taken away from tilie oommoo people ? Then wiill it plelase arise and state whio took t.hose nighte away ? Then again, wffll The Tknes please teil who it was that onacted the Wüeon bi'il, that liais run this sountry into debt over $200,000,000 in fooir years ? And oinoe again, luow can President McKAnJey restore in a few weeks or m'Ontibs whiat a democratie president and popurj,st sena.te have been iour years in destroying ? After The Times amswers these qnestioTiB, the re are a few more, quite as pertinent, we stoirld like to ask. N'O'W that the riah of the Lamd have poiwed ovit their weiaith in, display amd pomp and parade at Washington, let us with ome occord turn our ntd.ou to the '100,000 famKies iu out land who are homeless, headless, ciothelesfc a:nd in din-e distress.- Daily Times. Is it p'ossible that these families have been neglected all thds time '? If so who is to blame ? Beoaoisc some are poor must everybody deny themseftves all pleasure ? Becanse some aTe starving must those witli plenty staoTe aleo ? Beca.use one family is in mourning because oj the death of a friend, must aLi' the families of the world mourn also, out of sympathy ? But if tJüs is simply intended as a fling at the inooming adininistration, we have but to refer tlie Tïimes toi lts owa Siles of faur yeons ago, to learn of the wiicked extravagance of that toamguratiion of "Jeffersonian simplicïty," when there were three tianes ns many visiifors in Washington as this time, and when the displ-ay, extravagance and splendior of the ball room eclipeed anytihing ever known beiore or ever seein siince in America ! Is lt piossïble thiat tbe memory of The Tixaes is so detective ? Or is it juist talkiog ? Or w-hart ?
