protection and the gold
The great -political campaign, of
1892 was fought out on the its tie
jf a "high protective tariff' and
the lines of battle were clearly and
listinctly drawn. The gauge of
jattle was thrown upon the country
y the extreme advocates of protec-
ion, as represented by what was
lown as the McKinley law. The
mtest was clear cut, and the result
aparently decisive. But it would
sem from the present outlook, that
lis beast of prey was only tempo
rarily crippled, but not destroyed.

It will not require very much
lment to convince a reasonable
ian that if the people were pro
ibited by law from using any other
tind of meat but beef, or any other
tind of grain hut wheat, the two
irivileged articles would enjoy the
highest type of protection, and their
value would be enhanced far above
all other meats and grains. This
state of affairs would force out all
competition, and render the other
food products valueless.
The establishment of the yellow
metal as the only standard of value,
has had the same effect on other
kinds of money that the example of
radical protection would have on
beef or wheat, viz.: to depreciate
the value of everything else but
gold. In other words, gold has
gone up in value, since the adoption
of the single standard, and is reap
ing the benefits of protection. 'All
the products of the farm, the fac
tory, or the mine, except gold, have
steadily declined. The purpose of
monometalism is to enhance the
value of credits by limiting the vol
ume of the circulating medium. It
imposes upon the debtor the burden
of taking more of his products and
labor to liquidate his- debt than was
necessary when the debt was con
tracted. It gives full control of
the financial affairs of "the country
to a single class, whereby they not
only demand their "pound of flesh,"
but they are enabled by reason of
their special privilege to dictate to
and rule the government itself.
The gold standard is the capsheaf
of protection, its choicest flower
and its rarest fruit. -Misguided
men may think they can consists
ently favor "free coinage of silver,"
and an increase in the volume of
money, and at the same time favor
protection; but they will find out in
the end that they cannot serve two
masters. The two theories are in
conflict and can never be made to
work together. The country is
rapidly growing and struggling for
enlarged means, and will at last
break the fetters of gold, and throw'
off the weight of protection, and
not until then will we have univer
sal prosperity among themases of

WAR WITH SPAIN.
Judging from the telegraphic re
ports, and the tone of Congress
this week, there is a possibility of
a war breaking out at once between
the United States and Spain, over
the Cuban question. The Senate
and the House have both expressed
a aecidcd determination to recog
nize the Cuban patriots as a bellig
erent nation, which is in effect the
recognition of their government.
How the President and his cabinet
view the matter, is not yet publicly
made known; but it is believed, by
many that the executive part of the
government is in full sympathy
with this noble band of struggling
freemen in their efforts to give lib
erty and independence to the peo
ple of the most fertile and prosper
ous island in the world. It is true,
war is a horrible remedy for any
evil, but it is sometimes the only
cure for desperate cases. "We do
not fear the result, even though
Spain should get aid and sympathy
from other European powers; as we
would have the advantage of posi
tion, as well as having right and
justice on our side. We believe
the result would be, that the United
States would own Cuba and the
other islands in the group now un
der Spanish dominion, which would
be of untold advantage to this
country. Then we also believe
that such a war would at once
necessitate the opening of our mints
for the free and unlimited coinage
of silvery and when once restored,
would never again be demonetized
as it once was, by false pretences.
This -we honestly believe would
bring permanent prosp;rity- to the
people of this country, something
we shall never again see so long as
the single gold standard is main
tained. Let the war come; we shall
be able to kill two birds with one
stone, viz., to assist in crushing a
tyrant in Spain, and deposing a
worse tyrant in the United States,
the gold king of Wall street.
After the Scalp of a Candidate
Who is Against the Negro
East St. Louis, 111 , 'Feb. 29.
Special The thirty thousand col
ored voters of this State are against
ex-Coroner Henry L. Hertz, for
the nomination for State treasurer
on the Republican vote, and today
a convention of the colored voters
of the southern part of the State
is being held for no other purpose
than to take action for his defeat.
Rev. J. S. Woods, of 'Peoria, who
is president of the State Afro
American Protective League, as
serts that Hertz is against the col
ored people as a race, and that
while he was coroner of Cook
county he made an attempt to
prejudice the people against them.
Another meeting of the same na
ture as. today's conference is to be
held at Galesburg, between March
4th and 10th. Jrrovo Enquirer.
The colored voters of the State
of Illinois, are about as aright and
progressive a class of citizens as
can be found in any State, and,
perhaps are as free from the old
tine prejudice as any colored men
in the nation, taken as a whole.
Not less than fifteen thousand of
then voted for Governor Altgeld,
ia 1862, and, in, fact, a large nusa-
Ter of them voted the entire Demo
cratic ticket nt that election. They
know who their real friends are;

of the colored men of that State

The following colloquy comes
from Heber, Utah, and we surmise
it refers to Alfred Bond, a first
class gentleman, and a reader and
warm supporter of the Bboxd Ax:
"To Editor Broad Ax: What is
the difference between a bond and
a greenback? I don't know, as I've
never seen one of my own."

THE BROAD AX,

During the past week .the editor
of the Broad Ax made a flying
visit to the above-mentioned cities,
where we found a number of new
subscribers of the Broad Ax. The
following are a few of our new
Y. H. G. Parks, superintendent
of the Co-op.; George C. Witmore,
president of the First National
Bank; A. F. McCanne; Dr. E. E.
Wilcox. Mrs. Wilcox is a daugh
ter of Bishop and Mrs. Burton, of
this city. She is a charming con
versationalist and a very amiable
lady to meet. We shall always re--meraber
our pleasant visit to the
elegant home of Dr. and Mrs Wil
cox. We regret to say that Nephi
is the hotbed of Republicanism in
Utah, The members of the g o.
p. have had control of Nephi for,
the last four years, and they have
so mismanaged, the city affairs dur
ing that period, that they have suc
ceeded in plunging the city into
debt to the extent of $43,000. They
have erected immemse school build
ings, asd they have no money in the
treasury to pay the teachers with,
and unless these g. o. p. leaders are
successful in selling a few more
bonds they will be compelled to
close all the schools in. the .district
'for the simple reason that they have
ho funds on hand tepaytherua
aing expenses. These g. o. p. lead
ers, of Nephi, are- ol the opinion
that they are the best business men
