Democratic Tretonifs tutioci in Terms
of Patriotic Kl(.qir:ija.
When aroused to mttilpctual indig
nationhis emotions an singularly
well under control at nil timesSen
ator Ingalls is the most energetic,
brilliant, aggressive, peitinont, and if
need be, withering of poliiic.il orators.
His masteily comma nd of language,
the accumulative force of his faultless
rhetoric, the \igor and originality of
his ideas in logical expression, the au
dacity of his antitheses, and the dom
inant fact that he is never without the
courage of his convictions, make him
a man to be feared as ell as admired.
He is to the American what Cicero was
'to the Roman Senate, and his philip
pics, as his speech on the Pension bill
attests, are as punitive of the culprit
Democracy ns ever were the invectives
of the patriotic judge of conspirators
against the peace, dignity and honor
of the State of Rome.
I coming to the defense of the
soldier interests it is the business of
the Democracy to assail whenever it is
expedient, Mr. Ingalls was as much in
spired by enthusiasm as impelled by
indignation, and the ringing sentences
hurled defiantly, but with a nice regard
to parliamentary courtesy, at the op
position had in them the ardor of a
sincere sympathizer with the advo
cated cause. Whatever may be the
differences of individual opinion as to
the attitude of the fiery Senator rela-.
tive to certain points in his seemingly
impulsive speech, there can be but one
view of the soundness and irresistible
right of Jus deductions. His stand as
siues lum of the gratitude of the
-.oldiers, whose lights he insists must
be regarded and allowed, and the at
tempt of Senator Blackburn to have it
'appear that he maligned the dead,
memoiy of whom is*precloils to the ex
soldien of the Union army, will not
detiact from the respect and admira
tion wo by his emphatic support of
i he measure the Democrats are deter
mined shall figure as a partisan issue.
Vigor of language is necessary when
-a body of men ostensibly loyal to the
principles of the Union, sit menacing
in. judgment against the just appeals
of the defenders of that Union, threat
ening the legislative body with the
displeasure of an Executive who sits in
authority as the representative, not of
the uhole people against party, but of
a party against tho idea of National
(unity, harmony and justice. Senator
(Ingalls exposed the misiepresentations
a nd ponctrated the sophistry of the
Democratic politicians wh have tried
on the one hand to make it appear that
the petition of the G. A. R. was an in
solent demand, and on the other hand
to insinuate against the champions of
the Union soldieisand sailors that they
are seeking only to foster political sen
timent for selfish purposes.
Senator Blackburn could make no
"more effective reply to the Kansas Sen
ator's scathing arraignment of the
Democrats than the reiteration of the
feeble jest of one of his colleagues,
that Ingalls was stirring up for himself
a Presidential "boom." A more paltry
evasion of the imperative issue present
ed by the speech of Senator Ingalls
could not well be attempted, and comes
contemptibly from a man of Senator
Blackburn's professsed intelligence,
whose only other reply was deliberate
misrepiesentatiouof Ingalls' clear and
unmistakable declaration. Th Dem
ocrats have persistently falsified the
attitude of the Union soldier, as they
have continuously falsified the facts
and figures relating to the pensioners
and would-be pensioners of the gov
ernment established by the Union sol
diers. Tho declaration that there were
but eight thousand Southern sol
diers arms at Appomattox at
the time of Lee suriender is not
wider of the truth than the assertion
that half the men who weie in the
Union armies are now on the pension
rolls and neither is more delibeiately
untrue than the repeated malign at
tempts to define the motives of the
'soldier and the friend of the soldier.
Senator Ingalls smote with irresistible
thrust the pretenses and affections of
the Democrats so apparently zealous
to conserve the right of the many, and
placed before them an issue so plain
that no subteifuge or artifice will
enable the Democrats of the Senate
and House to escape putting them
selves squarely on record for or against
the dependent Union soldier as a
Union soldier. If the Democrats in
sist, as they seem determined to in
sist, on making the soldier question a
political issue, they will find that there
yet exists in the United States enough
loyalty to the Union and to the soldiers
of the Union to sweep the Democracy
out of existence on that issue alone.

THE INEVITABLE RESULT.
Why Tariff-Tinkering Is Bound to injure
tlio Working Classes.
With tho tariff on steel rails at the
present figure foreign manufacturers
are able to enter the American market
and lay down their products, after
adding ocean transportation and cus
toms charges, at a price which leavgs
only a nairow margin of profit to the
home manufacturer who meets i I
other words, the rail-makers of Amer
'ica, with all the advantages of im
proved processes and plants, an inex
haustible supply of iron ores almost
at theii mill doors, and a market close
at hand, find it no easy matter, even
with the aid of a duty of seventeen
dollars per ton, to compete with mills
whose product must be freighted a
distance of three thousand miles, and
then pay an import tax. Take away
any part of this import tax, and you
leave the American manufacturer but
one alternativeeither to close down
his works and leave his costly plant to
rust in idleness and his workmen and
their families to starve, or else reduce
the cost of production by reducing
wages. That is what it comes to at
last. Th American working-man must
stand the brunt of the Democratic
policy of wholesale cutting-down of
customs taxation.Chicago Mail.
'It is as un-American as mon
archy and as treasonable as secession.

BENEFITS O PROTECTION.
A Tariff Properly Adjusted
Blessings Over All.
The scale of protective duties should
be so adapted as to secure the right of
every owner of land to provide for his
present wants and the future of his
family and to add to the wealth and
power of his country by developing
and bringing into profitable use all the
resources of his estate, whether they
be the products of the farm or those
of the forest, the mine or the quarry*
The land-owners of a nation, however,
are not that portion of its citizens
who are mo st dependent upon the
maintenance of a system of duties which
should, under all the vicissitudes of
trade and changes, in the course of
international commerce, defend their
rights for though commercial depres
sion may prevent them from maki ng
profits to be hoarded or expended in the
improvement of their estates, they may
prooure sustenance from them. But it is
not so with the landless millions. Their
estates consist of their thawm. and
sinews of the training of tl
and hands to quick co-operat
of their taste for and aptne
production of the attractive
texture and color of invent:
which enables them, by
nations of mechanical prin
applications of scien ce to
increase the productive power of a
tions. These and the like aptitudes
constitute the estate of millions of
people who are known as artists,
artisans, laborers, or by other terms of
designation and who have the right
to demand that their estate also shall
be defended by the nation, though
their defense shall require other
agencies than the power of a navy and
army. Th daily wag es of these toil
ing millions are the units of measure
ment by which their estates are told,
and their means of comfort and health
ascertained. And, I repeat it is the
duty of government so to adjust the
regulation of its trade and com
merce as to secure its own people
whatever benefits are to be derived
from the development of the material
resourc es of the country and the con
version of its native raw material into
A tariff adjusted to these aims
would protect every branch of indus
try, yet would not call into existence
a single monopoly. I would, like a
beneficieut Providence, shed its bless
ings over all, and prevent the recur
rence of such seasons of suffering, de
pression and want as occurred be
tween the close of the war and the
going into effect of the tariff of 1824
between the overthrow of protection
by the Compromise act of 1833 and
the adoption of the tariff of 1842 or
again, such as followed the free-trade
tariff of 1846, in spite of the fact that
our gold fields had, in a single decade,
yielded $1,100,000,000. Here was a
direct and unexpected gift from Provi
dence, bestowed for the purpose of
proving, even to the willfully blind,
the truth that a protective tariff is the
only defensive instrumentality known
to modern industrial warfare and
that, by securing the prosperity of all against*
classes of the people, and thus avert
ing long seasons of idleness and dis
tress, it is, while apparently a law for
the benefit of producers only, in fact
a boon to those who neither sow nor
reap, but are consumers only.Will

What Poets and Philosophers Have Found
to Say on tho Subject.
Thom as Moore differs from me, for
he .vrites, quite oblivious of Lavater:
In vain we fondly strive to trace,
The soul's reflection in the face,
In vain we dwell on lines and crosses.
Crooked noe and short proboscis,
Boobies have looked as wise and blight
As Plato and the stagyente
And many sage and learned skull
Has peeped through windows dark and dull
Noses have, however, been held in
respect for many reasons by the learned, heads of* cabbage a"da7durhig the p"ii
A an oracle the old writers held that
it was a sure sign of faithful affection.
Writes Rouister: "Did my nose bleed
in your company?" And, poor wretch,
just as she said this, to show her true
heart, her nose fell a bleeding. Bleed
ing of the nose did not always indicate
this, however, as the learned Grose
pleaded, for he held: "If a nose bleed
one drop only, it forebodies sickness if
three drops, the omen is still worse."
While Milton, ho wrote the "Astrolo-
gist," said: "Hainan's nose bleeds
one drop at the left nostril it is a sign
of good luck." Dekker, on the other
hand, held that the principal use of
the nose was to foretell the coming of
We shall ha' guests to day
My nose itcheth.
There are lots of expressions in popu
lar parlance, too, to show how impor
tant the nose is considered. For in
stance, one speaks of a dupe as a per
son who is "led by the nose," and Iao-o
says of Othello:
He was led by the nose as asses are. Tgs*
Paying through the nose," again, is
held to be a condition of too much
trustfulness, and Grimm says that this
saying had its origin in an old practice
of King Odin, who levied a tax of a
penny on every nose or poll. "Tweak
ing" the nose indicates not only a nose
puller, but a nose owner who is weak
enough to let people wring his probos
cis and not only did Papists in the eld
days slit the noses of the Protestants,
and Roundheads slit the noses of cava
liers, but in the war of 1877-78 theMon
tegrins generally cut off the noses of
all the Turkish prisoners that they
ehanced to take.
Still, though suffering the occasional
indignity of a tweak, a good nose only
belongs to the clever mana man who
is able to find out secrets. For, as the
Latin poet says:
Non cuicunque datum est habere natum,
which freely rendered into English
means: It is not given to every body to have a nose
Still, as I have remarked, the nose is
not treated with the respect that it
should be, and this is possibly because
it is often the medium of ridicule. Yo
will remember Barham's lines:
The sasristan expressed no words
To indicate a doubt,
But he put his thumb unto his nose
And spread hisfingersout.
Naturally the hands placed tandem in
front of the nose put the organ itself in
some peril, and hence it gets hit occa
sionally in a fight, as witness Hudibras,
who notes that:
Those who in quarrels interpose
Must often wipe a bloody nose
