Why JTJTQfe the Term* Democrat and
Trader Are Synonymous.
general consent .the Republican
party applies the term, free trade to
the Democratic partyfe. and, when
spoken of in connection with the tariff,
it is called the "free, "trade party."
The Democrats object to this name,
and the greater portion of the Demo
cratic press protest against the appli
cation of the term. Le us see how
this is. I the first place no small fac
tion of the Democratic party are free
traders, according to their own state
ments, and, when speaking for the
party, claim that the platform is much
more of a free trade platform than a
protection one. A analysis of the
tariff plank of 1884, which was re
affirmed at St. Louis, must be accepted
as the sentiment of therparty regarding
the subject. There is but one material
point in that platform, for, regardless
of all that is said concerning labor and
wages, the essence of the whole resolu
tion is found in the words: "We de
mand that Federal taxation shall be ex
clusively for public purposes." This
is simply another way of saying: a
tariff for revenue only," which was the
language of the platform of 1880, or,
'we demand that all custom-house tax
ation shall be only for revenue," which
was the language of 1876. A tariff
for revenue only," or ''exclusively for
public purposes," can not mean a
tariff for any thing else. It means a
"tariff for revenue only" regardless of
every other consideration, for wre
other objects considered it could not be
a tariff for revenue only or for public
purposes exclusively. "Only" or "ex-
clusively" can not mean more, and
revenue simply is all that is embraced
in the term. A tariff that does not
protect the interests for which it was
designed from foreign influences, is in
very material sense free trade. A
tariff for revenue only can not mean a
protective tariff. Protection does not
enter into the idea of a revenue tariff
at all. It is no part oj. it, and if such a
tariff would prove protective it would
be only accidental. Incidental pro
tection "is no protection. An thi ng
that may or may not be, is not, and
the only protection that can be is di
rect. The difference between the two
parties is, the Republicans demand pro
tection as the prime factor of a tariff,
while the Democrats demand revenue
as the only purpose of duties on im
gprts. A revenue tariff can not be a
protective tariff, for the stimulus which
a reduction of duties will give impor
tation will make necessary so great a
reduction that the protective element
will entirely disappear, and j.ts effect
be lost. When this is gone what have
we better than free trade? According
to the declarations of the party we do
not see why objections should be urged
to the term of free traders.Chicago

What President Cleveland Would Do Were
He an Honest Alan.
It was a grim piece of satire which
commissioned the spoils Congressman,
Hon. Pa Collins, of Boston, to notify
Grover Cleveland of his renomination,
but he performed the task creditably,
and the President at the close of his
remarks accepted the prize and inti
mated that in due time he would sig
nify such acceptance in the usual formal
When that "due time" arrives, if
Grover Cleveland we re not an arrant
hypocrite, he would recall his formal
letter accepting his first nomination
and would say to the Democracy, as he
said then, that "the full realization of
a government by the people will be at
hand" when office is a public trust,"
when the holders of the ballot will
avenge truth betrayed," and when "the
suffrages shall be altogether free and
uncorrupted," and a&a means to this
end he would say in the words of his
As a means to this end nfit one would, in my
judgment, be more effective than an amend
ment to the constitution disqualifying the Pres
ident from re-election. When we consider the
patronage of this great office, the allurement
of power, the temptation "to restrain public
place once gained, and, more than all, the avail
ability a party finds in an incumbent whom a
furZe of ojfice-holder* tmth. absent born. o_f benefits
received and fostered ly the^KOpe of favors yet to
come stand ready to aid with money and trained
political service, we recognize in the eligibility
of the President for re-eleotion a most serious
danger to that calm, deliberate and intelligent
action which must characterize a government
by Ahe people.
And having ma de this statement he
then would say "For these reasons
publicly stated and to avoid the dan
gers to the country and good govern
ment I have already set forth over my
own signature, I can not, with honor,
gentlemen, accept the nomination yon
have tendered me Thanking you for
that honor, and solicitous for my own
sincerity and honesty^ I respectfully
decline the nominationpand refer you
to the old bandana which waves at the

Toledo Blade: The platform upon which the
Republicans will do battle from now until the

of the great banking firms of the
world. Elected to the House of Rep
resentatives, he there added to his
fame and justified the high expecta
tions of his friends by speeches on
financial questions, which showed that
he was not merely a practical banker,
but understood the theory and philos
ophy of finance in its largest sense
and in its National aspects. His name
was prominently mentioned in connec
tion with the Vice-Presidency on the
ticket with Garfield in 1880 and he
was strongly urged for Secretary of
the Treasury in 1881. declined the
Naval portfolio and accepted the posi

rhe Work of Compositor* Who Had
Keen-Sense of Humor, l^^fl^
Compositors are not immaculate, and
some blunders which ha ve found their
way into print may bear repeating. A
parson who preached a fairly good ser
mon, but wrote a villainous hand, was
shocked to find a sentence that should
ha ve read: "But sorrow not, nor grieve
take the final steps now, and sin no
more,'" appear in print as: "Take the
final stiffs now, etc. The shipping
community were amazed to learn some
time ago that "the schooner Jessie Lee
left last night with a cargo of cats."
When the marine editor, who had writ
ten oats, saw this he felt grieved. A
literary woman who writes about philos
ophy and Buddhist poetry and things of
that sort, is very choice in her lan
guage. A short time ago she wrote a
couple of paragraphs about Emerson,
in which he said that gentleman was
the indefatigable "keeper of a diary,"
The compositor, who, doubtless, was an
old and trusted friend of the philosoph
ical gentleman, knew better, and the
readers were gravely informed that
Emerson was the indefatigable 'heifer
of a dairy." A poet whose writing is
like nothing in the heaven above nor
anywhere else, once wrote:
"Statesmen, princes, rulers all,"
And was doubtless surprised when he
found the line printed?
"Steamboats, schooners, tugs aad all."
A dramatic critic in a handsome
notice of a charming young actress,
whose treatment of Portia afforded him
much pleasure said: "Her love for Por
tia made acting easy." That was all
right, but what the types made him say
was: "He love for porter." A art^
critic, in writing favorably of a picture
by Bizzaro, as shocked to find that by
some means known only to the com
positor and proof-reader the following
sentence had got into the criticism.
"13,133,070 shows one of the finest in
the collection." A revivalist preacher
said: "Y were born to suffer as ye
were born to be rewarded, for well hath
it been written: 'No cross, no crown,"
The latter part of the sentence appearec
in print: "No cows, no cream," which,
although as truthful as the assertion oi
the minister, was not apropos. Errors
are quite frequent in headlines. Th
sentences are usually so short and there
is so little context to read by that a very

one on the spleen or ague cake, and one on

about thirty days, changing them every

It can not truthfully be denied that the
Burlington Route, & Q. R. R., i 3 do
ing an extensive business, both passenger
and freight. Of the first named branch of
its service the Chicago Herald recently said,
in speaking of the occasion of the National
RepubUcan Convention: "TheBurlington
Road probably brought in moro people than
any other. Altogether it is estimated that
from June 16 to 39, the period of the excur
sion rates, over 12,000 strangers came to
Chicago over the Burlington." This was
exclusive of suburban passengers and
mostly addition to its heavy regular pass
enger traffic In receipts of live stock, the
Union Stock Yards' Reports show the Bur
lington to be far in the lead. The average
number of ears brought in bv it during the
fctsMonths of the years 1886,1887 and
1888 is 26,140 and the number for the first
half of the year 1888, notwithstanding the
temporary depression caused by the recent
great strike on its hnes, was 24,425, or but
little below the average. The latter figure
also represents about 24 per cent, of the
total number of cars, 102.413, brought to the
Yards for the last half year, being more
than six per cent, in excess of the receipts
by any other road.

An unhealthy woman is rarely, if ever,
beautiful. The peculiar diseases to which
so many of the sex are subject, are prohiic
causes of pale, sallow faces, blotched with
unsightly pimples, dull, lustreless eves and

be permanently cured by using Dr. Pierce's

combined with good qualities of head and
