for free raw wool and accepted the bill prepared by the Ways and Means

Of course, the vote on the wool question, though Important, Is, never

the party and that tho fight which will now ensue between the Demo

carried even into tho Democratic National convention.
Probably It will also result in a split between Champ Clark and W.

In the meanwhile let us rejoice that Mr. Bryan has been shown to a
