AS TO POLITICS.
The Springfield (Mass.) Republican
commends the followingwordsdelivored
by Rev. Richard Carroll (colored) to
"I see no good for you in politics, but
I eee plenty of barm. Tin- colored pop?
ulation g.t excited every four yeans
find many leave the farm to sit around
and wait for an office. Some have not
?wwked sine.- McKinley wasunado Pres?
ident, and their fain lies are approach
'mg starvation. Politics have ruined us
and put us back many years."
This is excellent advice, not only for
the colored people but for.a 'number of
ncs, too. There are many white
McKinley was elected becauBe they
have been expecting to he made ??min?
isters to Dahomey," or to secure sonve
i?ther position under the administration.
"Politics has ruined" a number of col?
ored men, but a imuch larger host of
while (men have wrecked their for?
tunes and lives upon the sunken rocks
of (political ambition. The man who ac?
cepts a position In the public service
because his natural gifts lit him for it.
and 'because lie hears tin- dii-ti'net call
of duty to country and fellow-man, is
n patriot and deserves all honor and
praise. The'man who goes into politics
for a. living or as t'he result of an ex?
aggerated craniafl development is usual?
ly a knave or a fool.
'England and Russia seem dispose.! to
work up a little couiiter-a.tiracti'on.
AMERICVN LA I a >R.
In reiferring to the opportumlity pre?
sented for a profitable investment in
t'he shipbuilding industry in New York
state, Mr. Andrew Carnegie, win. has
had experience enough to justify the
presumption that he knows what he is
talking about, says:
?The price paid for steel by British
andiGrman shipyards are so much h.sli?
er than shipbuilders in New y.irk
would be required p. pay tin- difference
would make in' itself an excellent
profit. Plates are worth about $22
or $23 in New York. The quoted price
ut Glasgow is nearly $30. other prices
are in porportlion, tend all the woodwork
of ships is also tmuiah cheaper with us.
"If a yard were built today with the
newest atopl'lonees the total cost of la?
bor, even at much higher wages, would
be less than in any shipyard 1 know .if.
either in Great Britain or Germany."
'Aside from the (Important announce
ment that the United States .-an pro?
duce steel so much cheaper than its
chief competitor, tills statement con?
tains a just and w.-ll deserved tribute
to the American' workman, who, while
receiving the highest -wages of any of
the sons of toil, furn'tehies th.- cheapest
lab.r in the world.
The American workmen are the best
in the w..r!.l because they are stimu?
lated to put forth their best efforts
through a desire to rise t.. a higher pos?
ition in the world. The doors of caste,
and royalty are not Closed ngain-t them
and ambition becomes the iadd ;r
which they reach the highest perfect!
in their chosen trades.
Cheap labor, aft.-r all, is usually t
most expensive in -the end.
According to statistics, the Am.-ri.
people si.end $00,000,000 annually
dust, sand, soap grease and sund
other food sidult.-rants. This fact w
adduced at the recent session of t
pure f<A.d congress. While th- fi
ures are alarm,rig in their magnitu.
it irf quite safe to assume that the ov.
age Aimerie-an wTM go ahe-ad with t
consumption of foreign subs/tan.
