As the woathor grows cool the Con
gressional campaign crows warm. When
n black frost crowns tho stumps the
slump speakers will become white-hot.
Such is the political law of conlrattes,
or contrary law of politics.
As was to bo expected, both parties
will make tho best, or worst, of tho new
Tariff law. Tho Democrats will attack
lis absurdities, puncture Its anomalies
and expose its evils. This task will bo
case Itself compared to that cut out for
tho Ilcpubllcans, who will be compelled
to defend tho monstrosity and asseverate
that It Is a thing of beauty and a joy
And so It will prove to Its bcncflct
nrlos, the Carncglos nnd other Iron
uarons nnu trust monopolists.
The Democratic campaign commit
tee Is already at work preparing a cam
paign document relating to the disas
trous effect the new tariff Is bound to
havo upon the general welfare and
prosperity of tho country. Tho llepub
llcans are foiccd to wnlt a short time to
tee If something won't happen which
they can contort Into alleged evidence
of tho benefits of their muddled and
muddling Taillt law.
The Ilepubllcan committee Is very
anxious, weli-ulgh despondent, over the
outlook, while tho Democrats are con
fldetit and eager for tho fray with never
a doubt as to the result, ltight here It
Is will to warn tho Democratic man
agers against the mistake of over-confidence,
nnd to call their nttontlon to the
fact that their opponents, having carried
out the corrupt bargain with the
monopolists made In 1888, are again In
a position to "fry tho fat" out of the
tariff tax eaters.

Herein is the clanger of the Democrats.
