Why Irish-Americans Should Unanimous
ly Vote for Them.
The real question (i the present
campaign) turns upon the struggle of
protection to American industry, as
against the principles of free trade as
advocated by the Cobd en Club, of En
gland. I has fallen to the lot of
America to adopt a tariff for the pro
tection of American manufacturers
against ruinous competition of foreign
labor, and the working of the ex
periment is the best argument in
favor of the continuance. Since
the war America has witnessed al
most unexampled prosperity. There
could be no better illustration of the
advantages of the tariff system than a
comparison of the wages paid in Eu
rope and America. A a Nation we
have had a broad and ample experi
ence of a tariff system on our indus
trial prosperity, and we are now sum
moned by Grover Cleveland to listen
to the siren voice of the manufacturers
of Great Britain. With the exception
of a certain class of humanitarian
who conceive it their duty to wage
war in favor of the working-men across
the Atlantic, we know of no class of
men, except Grover Cleveland and hi 8
Cabinet, who wish* to see America
adopt a free-trade policy.
W have dwelt upon the convention
and its candidates so long that we
have left ourselves little space for
urging upon our Irish-American
friends their duty in the coming cam
paign. W will say to them as Amer
icans, as freeme n, that the time has
arrived when all divisions and ani
mosities should cease, in order to res
cue this glorious land from a hateful
Anglo-maniac domination. W hope
that Irish-Americans will discard all
past alliances, put aside all present
fea rs and dread no future coalitions,
in the single hope of carrying to
speedy victory a banner inscribed with
these devices: "Harrison and Mor-
ton," Protection to American Labor
and Industry." "Protection of the
American Citizen at Home and
Abroad."St. Louis American Celt.

THE FREE-TRADE BILL..,
rue Entering Wedge Driven in at tne
Foot of the Grand Protection Oak
The Democratic party has officially
registered its adoption of the Presw
dent's free-trade policy. The Mills bill
has passed the House with a margin of
thirteen votes. The character of thisj
measure is determined by its essential
featurethe free wool clause. that
sign it is known of all men as a free
trade measure. Even if this charac
terist ic feature were lacking, the files
of the Congressional Record bear wit
ness on every Democratic page to the
purposes of the party leaders who have
forced this measure through the House.
Every Southern member of the major
ity party in the House who has spoken
in the tariff debates has declared his
hostili ty to protection and his sy m
pathy with free trade. Tne Nortnern
Democrats have followed the Southern
leaders with servility, the majority of
them being as extreme in their tirades
against protection as the brigadiers
who made a free-trade constitution for
the Southern Confederacy. Only four
voices on that side have been raised
against the bill during the prolonged
debate. A measure advocated as th is
has been can not mean any thing but
free trade. I is the entering wedge
driven in by the President's command
at the foot of the noble protection oak
whose branches overspread the land.
Let the President and his party tri
umph in November and the tree will
be felled and the ground cleared for
r. Mills, in closing the debate, an
grily disclaim ed the essential character
of his work. "I that is free trade,
will some one tell me what is protec-
tion?" was the formula which he used
in his review of the bill, schedule by
schedule. even sought by clumsy
evasions and palpable misrepresenta
tions to convey the impression to the
country that his handiwork was a gen
uine protection measure, inspired by
honest regard for the industrial sys
tem of the country. So it came to
pass that the party which has declared
open warfare upon protection in a
most aggressive campaign against the
tariff found itself on the last day oJ
the debate compelled to act upon the
defensive and to beat the air and falsi
fy the issue. The country should no
b* deceived by these dishonest tactics.
If the Republican party do their work
thoroughly in educating voters during
the next three months the issues in
volved in Democratic tariff legislation
wi ll be understood far and wide and
acted upon by an undivided North,
united once more in order to save Amer
ican industrial institutions. N. Y.
KILLING AN INDUSTRY.
The Effect of the Mills Bill on the Wool
Interests of the Countr y.
The effect of the passage of the Mills
bill even through one House of Con
gress is felt at once. Its blasting in
fluence upon one branch of busine ss is
shown suddenly and disastrously. The
big wool house of Hall Brothers in this
city failed a few days ago. I was not
in go od condition and the outlook was
not such as to justify further effort.
A assignment was made.
I a court of justice, the force of the
blow at an American industry was
made apparent. Part of the wool of
Hall Brothers is stored, and rival
creditors present claims. There is in
a warehouse a stock of this wool val
ued at $130,000. The various claim
ants desire to inspect this stock, but it
is not wise to allow them time. Why?
Simply because, as the representative
of the assignee stated as a matter oi
business to the court, the Mills bill
having pass ed the House wool is de
clining in value, and the commodity
should be sold immediately if credito rs
are to get what is due them.
Here was no political buncomb
Here was a business fact given from a
business necessity. Already the Mills
bill has crippled the wool industry of
the United States. There is not a
dealer with wool in his possession,
there is not a farmer from the At
lantic to the Pacific who owns a single
sheep, who is not a poorer man than
he was before the bill reached its pres
ent stage. Were it a certainty that
the measure would pass the Senate he
would be poorer still.
The farmers of the country are sacri
ficed by the Democratic party for the
benefit of the wool-growers of England
and Australia. That is the situation
in a sentence. There is no chance for
quibble or evasion in the matter. The
cheaply-grown wool of other countries
is allowed to come in and ruin the
market for wool of home production.
I is something a school-boy may com
The destruction of the wool industry
is but one incident in the destruction
of industries which would follow the
adoption of the Democratic pro
gramme. I is but an illustration
made particularly forcible" by the fact
that we have already before our eyes
striking proof of the evil that may be
wrought by the free-trade scheme.
Farmers and Protection.
The wage-earners on farms in this
country exceed 10,000,000 while there
are upwards of 25,000,000 persons di
rectly dependent on farming for their
livelihood. These 10,000,000 farm
hands, their employers, and the capi
tal invested, produce annually over
$3,000,000,000, exclusi ve of cotton and
tobacco. Of this, 8 per cent, only is
sold in foreign markets, 92 per cent,
being consumed at home. Which
market, then, shou ld the farmer uphold
and encourage? What tariff princi
ples should he maintain and support?
What should become of this great
home demand and remunerative
market shou ld the Mills bill be
come a law? Why, it would shrivel
and shrink amazingly, while millions
of idle mill operatives would be driven
to the farms. Imagine the number of
farmers doubled and the home anarket
shrunk to one-half or one-fourth its
present size! N wonder the owners
and workers of farms are becoming
anxious and taking a deep interest in
this, to them more than any one else,
vital question. The busy season is
hand, but a doub le harvest will accrue,
if every man will &6 his duty.=-Sft*r#
Chinese Paper-Makers Compete With tn
Manufacturers of Muslin.
Paper fabric will actually take the
place of genuine cloth to some extent.
I a modification of what used to b?
called the Fedora front, to be worn by
a fashionable girl, the chemisette, or al
least a portion of it disclosed between
the front edges of the jacket, is com
posed of paper, stamped and cut in imi
tation of lace and embroidery. Thit
innovation was premeditated to the ex
tent that an order was sent to Chins
more than a year ago for the manufao
turo of the stuff in the fibrous sort o'
paper produced only in that country
Thus it is that the masculine exampk
of paper collars and cuffs has been fol
lowed, in an idealized manner, by
feminine acceptance of paper chem
isettes. The paper looks exactly lite
soft, unlaundried linen, and is quit*
tough enough, it is well to say, to pre
vent easy accidents in the way of rents
Patterns are ingenious imitations, not
only of plain, fine muslin, but of lace.
That is timely, because there is a tend
ency to use laco more generously, with
demi-toilets for the afternoon. Som
ladies are returning to the handso mt
real laces so long laid aside, while th
merchants still find their best profit ir
the fine hand-woven imitation laces sc
long popular. Gauzes, net blonde anc
silk muslins, together with ribbons, are
combined with frills and jabots of lace
in plastrons, vests and fichus of varioui
kinds. Even for full dress toilets th
senorita jackets are worn with a full
blouse of cream-white China ci*ape.
