A DEMOCRATIC DISCOVERT.
A strfldng example of what one of Cap
tain Marryatt's nautical characters tsrms
"flapdoodle the stuff they feed fools
with" Is sfforded by the New York
Morning Journal, 1b its comments on the
heinous offense of Watson, the People's
party Congressman of Georgia, calling
for Federal supervisors at the polls in bis
district. The onjan jointly of Democracy
and Xcw York disreputability asserts that:
"He hoped that this would result In in
timidating Democratic voters and giv
ing somo advantage to the Populists."
The spectacle of a few Federal super
visors intimidatiDR the poor Democrats of
Georgia so that they dare not come to the
polls and vote is one of the choicest prod
ucts of a cheap imagination. Intimida
tion is something to which Southern
Democrats have been especially prone. It
may bo a merely popular superstition that
they have borne the active rather than
the passive relation to the intimidation;
but the news that the Georgia Democrats
are intimidated by a few Federal super
visors, with no other power than to make
the demand on behalf of the United
States for a fair vote and honest count,
was something that was reserved for the
Journal to disclose.
The People's party is serving the Demo
cratic cause. That Is the only possible re
sult that can come from any success that
it can win. But the fact that the Demo
crats will not give it a chance to poll Us
honest vote in the South ought to show
them their fatuity in serving such a party.
A" ORGAN'S EVASION.
There is a striking confession in the fol
lowing excuse of the 2few York Evening
Pott for refusing to publish as an adver
tisement the biography of GUroy.the Tam
many candidate for Mayor, which it had
previously given in its columns when
We would gladly reprint Mr. Gllroy's biog
raphy, or any other of the series, as an ad
vertisement. If the legal iesponslbillty font
could be transterred to somebody else. We
should rather enjoy, in fact, seeing 'some
body else arrested and indicted for showing
up the horrors of Tammany rule, hut, if the
Evening Pal were now to print a biography
as an advertisement, the editor could not go
before the grand Jury and say It was pub
lished on public grounds and for justifiable
ends, and with a reasonable expectation of
good results; the fnct being that it was
printed for simple lucre, at so much a line.
If the excuse of the Post is to be taken
fts sincere, it is a confession that the
charges which It has constantly made
against the Tammany politicians were
false and libelous. Unless the allegations
which, it must be borne in mind, have al
ready been made in its columns were un
true, it could not be held guilty of libel
for publishing them, whether as an adver
tisement or for its own purposes.
Everyone knowing the circumstances
knows that this excuse is not sincere. It
is not that the charges are untrue, but
that the Post has abandoned its old inde
pendence in order to serve its new polit
ical deities. The evasion is shown in the
pitiful distinction it sets up that it might
justify before a jary the printing of the
Gilroy record, if it did so on its own ac
count But it has already declined to do
so, for the simple reason that it has cast
aside all its former antagonism to political
jobbery, because the needs of its favorite
candidate require that it swallow Tam
many and all its jobbers. The New York
Evening Post bowing to the knee of Tam
many hi order to advance the cause of
free trade is one of the most powerful
moral examples presented by this cam
paign. A PERTINENT EXAMFLE.
The Midland puddlers have just sub
mitted to a reduction of wages which
makes the price of puddling Si" 81 per ton.
"When the Pittsburg puddlers were asked
to take a reduction to 55 00 per ton the
free trade press resounded with the claim
that this was an illustration of the Mc
Kinley tariff policy.
It is, when compared with English
wages. We have in this case an example
of the fact that under protection the wages
of these iron workers are 175 per cent
greater than those of the competing iron
workers in the English Midlands. The
difference in price of product and the per
centage of tariff protection is not so great;
but when we imagine all the labor cost
entering into a Ion of finished iron rated
at that proportion we can gain an idea of
the purposs of protection.
Those who wish to (see American wage3
cut down to the extent represented by the
proportion of SI 81 to $5, will do well to
vote for the Calhoun Democracy.
DIFFERENCE IN LABOR COST.
The New York Times lias been attack
ing Senator Sherman for defining In a
recent speech the purpose of protection to
be to cover the difference in wages be
tween the industries of this country and
those of Europe. The Times heads its
editorial article' making the attack "No
Truth in It," evidently with the purpose
of applying that assertion to Senator
Sherman's speech, but really character
izing by those words its own assertions.
The specific case which the Timet cites
to impeach Senator Sherman's veracity is:
'Tor example, the duty on steel rails is
about CO per cent at current prices, and
the .Republican Commissioner of Labor
has shown conclusively that it is three and
one-half times the difference in labor cost,
or in wages paid per ton." This is an
assertion which might Te considered a
pardonable mistake if made once or twice;
but when made after repeated correction
It simply amounts to persistent mis
representation. The "waices paid per ton
for converting iron into steel rails" is
not much store justly the labor cost of the
product than the sewing of the buttons on
a coat represents its entire labor cost
The compilation of all labor necessary to
produce a ton of steel rails has never been
completely made, because it cannot De.
But the "Republican Commissioner of
Labor," to whom the Timet refers, had 1
made an approach to it, stating the total
labor cost at 524 67 per ton. The differ
ence in wages in the iron and steel Indus
tries between our country and Europe is
fully fifty per cent of our standard,
which makes the duty of $13 44 per ton
on steel rails very near the labor cost.
This is, therefore, simply misrepresen
tation by resorting to the old trick of bal
ancing the wages in a final process of
manufacture against tha; entire duty.
A specimen of free trade logic,
however, is presented by the
Times' assertion "that a duty which
exceeds the entire value or selling
price of an imported product must exceed
the labor cost of that product" Most as
suredly; but it need not exceed the labor
cost of the similar domestic product
Thus let us Imagine an article manufact
ured, say in Italy,at a labor cost of $5 and
Invoiced at $7 for importation. The labor
cost here may bo ?12, and a duty of 100
percent on the valuation will no more
than cover the difference in wages. "Wilt
the Times commit itself to the assertion
that there are no such cases?
A VOICE FROM WAXES.
"We have received a copy of the Llanelly
and County Guardian, of October 20,
with an intimation accompanying it that
the editor would be pleased to have an ar
ticle on the tinplate question noticed in
The Dispatch. "We hasten to comply
with the request, solely on account of the
unique character of the logic and facts
Our Welsh cotemporary with a long
name starts out with the point that its
town Is the pioneer and center of the En
glish tinplate industry, and "is knowmas
the Tinopolis of the "World." This of
course renders It very reprehensible, in
the opinion of the editor, to encourage
the development of tinplate manufacture
anywhere else. Nevertheless, the "Welsh
journal finds that "a Senator named Mc
Kinley on the other side of the Atlantic"
has been guilty of that fatuity, which the
Llanelly publication regards as flat burg
lary. The article then discursively pro
ceeds to haul Mr. J. H. Rogers over the
coals for the offense of removing
his industry from Wales to the United
States and to perceive in it the fell hand
of that standing bugbear to the English
aristocracy and the American Democracy,
our own Andrew Carnegie. Such a step
as locating tin works anywhere but at
Llanelly the organ of that town regards
as peculiarly fatuous as the election of
Cleveland will be sure to repeal the Mc
Kinley act Nevertheless there is a doubt
on this point, for our foreign critic goes
on to state that the increased cost of tin
in canned goods will transfer the English
canned goods trade to "our own colonies
who will be able to compete and under
sell the Americans in the markets of the
world by reason of there being no tariff
on their tin plates."
The intimate acquaintance with Ameri
can politics shown by the reference to "a
Senator named McKinley," and the pre
diction that the election of Cleveland will
repeal the tariff, is not more delicious
than the industrial acumen displayed in
the prediction that the tariff, which is to
be alone repealed, will transfer the canned
goods trade to the.Britfsh colonies. The'in
creased cost of tin in canned goods hav
ing been figured out at an imperceptible
fraction of a cent per can, the United
States will await the catastrophe pre
dicted with calmness if not with confi
dence. There is, however, a doubt on the
tin plate question strongly suggested by
this article. If the development of
tin plate manufacture in this country
should imply the transfer here of the in
dustrial journalism exemplified by the
Llanelly and County Guardian, the pub-,
lie may think further of it-before taking
an industrial growth so handicapped.
THE CONTRIBUTION ROORBACK.
The favorite Democratic pastime this
year is to credit certain millionaires with
pouring immense sums of money into the
coffers of the Republican campaign com
mittee. The New York World has been
busy at this sort of thing with an energy
that is more prominent than its veracity.
First it quoted The Dispatch as stating
that an immense sum had been sent out
from Pittsburg to the Republican Na
tional Committee. The Dispatch hav
ing remarked that it has said nothing of
the sort,Mr.Frick's recent trip to Ne wYork
was made the basis for an invention to the
effect that he dumped some hundreds of
thousands into the political receptacle.
This story being denied the World
promptly produces the Manufacturers'
Club, of Philadelphia, in the light of turn
ing in the neat sum of S2,000,000, which
was in turn promptly exploded.
The characteristic of the World's roor
backs is the energy with which when one
story is proven to be false it inserts an
other with an Increased amount If it
keeps on wo may yet hope to hear from It
that those eminent plutocrats Payne,
Camden, Havemeyer, Brice and Benedict
have turned in 510,000.000 or 515,000,000 to
purchase victory for the Republicans.
Judge Guesham's letter to Mr. Bluford
Wilson, ns published elsewhere, may be re
garded as definitely settling the "way in
which the former intends to vote. Judge
Gresham has in the past heon rightly re
garded as a man of marked ability and
integrity. The charge that his political
action is due to disappointment in seeking
office under a Republican administration is
denied. These facts make it surprising that
the Judge explains his intention to vote for
Mr. Cleveland by saying he objocts to the
MoKInley bill. There is no attempt to pro
duce arguments or evidenco against Protec
tion, but simply a few general statements of
personal opinions. What shall be substi
tuted for the McKinley bill is not suggested.
In view of the strong evidence of the ad
vantages which the country has already de
rived from the most recent Protective
measure, and the utter uncerialntyof Domo-
tiunc intentions nnu me consequent threat
to commerce, the vote of Judge Gresham

CAMPAierNEWS AND COMMENT.
It is .now practically conceded that the
Republican majority in, Philadelphia will oe
JO.OOu'. or possibly 20.000 larger than in 18S8.
Harrily has paid noattention to the canvass
In his own eity, and tho Democratic loss
there will go far toward assuring a big lead
for tho party of protection in the Stato as a
whole. This being the case Interest in Penn
sylvania centers on the Congressional and
legislative contests, particularly the former.
There are five districts which the Republic
ans are endeavoring to rcolalm from the
Democracy. These districts are the
se venth, composed of Bucks and Montgom
ery counties: tho Eleventh, Lackawanna
county; the Thirteenth, Sckuylklll county;
the Twenty-ronrth, Washington, Fayette,
Greene and part of Allegheny, and the
Twenty-sixth, Butler, Beaver, Lawrenco
and 'Mercer. The last named may be dis
missed Jrom anyconccrn. It was lost two
years ago through a bribery scandal and tho
candidacy or two Republicans. This year
there is but ono Republican candidate who
has 7,000 majority to fall back upon. With
tho complications in the Twenty-fourth dis
trict all Western Pennsylvania Is familiar,
and the -uncertainty ns to whether the
Greene county kickers will defeat the regu
lar Republican nominee will not be dis
pelled until next week. The strongest
rights, will he made in the Seventh,
Eleventh and Thirteenth districts. In
tho former, two the chances nro in favor
of the Republicans, while tho Democrats
opparently hnvo the best or the latter con
test. The Republicans have nominated
Charles X. Branim, who in tho days when
there was something of a Greenback party
in Sclinvllcill wns nblo to tret elected. Ho
was beaten in'18S8 by James B. Reilley by a
majority or CS8. Reilloy was ngaln eloctod
two years ago by the increased majority or
L80, and is now the Democratic cuudidato
for re-olectlon. The Twelfth is another close
district, although now represented by a Re
publican. It is composed of Luzerne
county, which turns up variously, some
times one way and sometimes the other.
There is one more hot contest in the State,
that in the Erie-Crawford district, usually
strongly Republican. Thero Rev. Dr. Flood
and Sibley, of kite-shaped truck fame, are
indulging in a battle royal viith about even
chances of sneccss.
Democrats complain that sample ballots
bearing the name or Congressman Hallowell
as a Prohibition candidate are being circu
lated among tho saloon keepers of the
Seventh district by some of the opposition.
Joseph H. Manley, who is as thor
oughly acquainted with the details oftlie Re
publican canvassas Chairman Carter, speaks
most Highly ot the prospects for the
National ticket. He rays: "For tho first
time for many years, New England will ba
found sdlfdly iu the Hepubllcan column.
Connecticut is conceded by the shrewdest
Democrats to bo hopelessly Republican.
This State has so prospered under the ef
fects of the McKinley bill that Its electoral
vote will be given in ravor or that policy
which has increased its material wealth and
added to its gcnetnl prospeiity. In the
Northwest, when the campaign started, it
was feared that several of tho hitherto
strong Republican states might bo swung
into the Democratic column, either directly
or indirectly, by choosing electors favor
able to the People's party. These States
are now safely back and no danger is to be
apprehended' from any of the North western
or Pacific Slop e States, save alone Nevada.
In West Virginia, it must be remembered
that the steady trend for the last 20 years
has been toward the Eepubllcsn ptr(yand
away irom the Democratic party, and to
day the Ilopublicans have much the better
chance of carrying that State. Xew Jersey
is not claimed to be in the Republican
column, hut all careful observers know that
a terrifio contestis being made in that State.
In Indiana there aie conditions which are
more favorable to the Republic in party than
tnev n ere in 1033. in mo great .mpire state
of .New York it would be folly to say that
the Republicans are absolutely sure of carry
ing it. lr the Republican vote is polled and
every effort will be made to poll it. New
York will smelygive its vote to Mr. Harri
son. It does not seem possible that tlio
American people with their "rent instruct
to do right would consent to such a national
calamity as would result from tho election
or Mr. Cleveland."
The New York World figures -that the
next House will consist of 143 Republicans,
106 D emocrats and 15 independents.
CHAir.MAN Hareitv ha? written a brief
letter giving his views.upon the registration
in the Empire State antlfjparfiotilarly in the
metropolis. Among other things He cays:
"I regard the .registration in New York
City as very large, and am not disappointed
because the legislation on the last day did
not reach the extravagant Azures some peo
ple claimed it would reach. That the regis
tration wns light the last day is due largely
to what I call the reserve Republican vote,
which Jailed to register, and which will not
be cast lor General Harrison. The feeling or
confidence among tho Democrats and inde
pendents that tbo Democratic electoral
ticket will have a large majority has had a
depressing effect upon the Republican vot
ers of the city. This has intensified the
apathy and indifference nmong tho Repub
licans and explains why the registration on
Saturday .was not up to expectations of
many w.ho take an interest in such matters.
From what 1 have learned thero
nre extremely few Democrats in the city of
New York who have not registered. From
the best Information I can obtain and an
analysis of the icgistry lists the claim is
justified that is so confidently made by the
Now York -managers that New York City
will give a handsome majority for Cleveland
nnd Stevenson. The registration in Brook
lyn indicalos that the Democratic organiza
tion thero has been doing most effective
work. Thero are many reasons for beliov
ing that the vote or Kings county will show
very large gains. I see nothing to shake
our confidence that New Tork is Democratic.
Furthermore, this w ill bo a Democratic year
in several other close and doubtful States as
well as in Now York."
According to the St. Louis Globe Demo
crat "tho real people's party is the Hepub
llcan party. Most.pr the Western Populists
will be found in this party on election day."
It is now claimed that the Democrats of
Michigan were not smart enough to draft
the Miner law which will give them a por
tion of Michigan's electoral voto. It nas
presented to tho Legislature by Representa
tive John Miner, but it was suggested and
draftod by ex-Senator Jone3, orFlorida, who
for some years has been an inmate of tho
Dearborn Ilelreat, near Detroit. He is pos
sessed with tho Idea that he is being perse
cuted by tho British Government, but.in
other respects his mind is clear, nnd ho' is
otton consulted by loading Michigan Demo
crats, on mutters of policy. Estimates are
being made on tho probablo division of the
electoral vote. An impartial investigation
shows that the Republicans will probably
chooso eight electors In Michigan, viz., in the
Western district and in the Second, Third,
Fourth, Fifth, Ninth. Eleventh and Twelfth.
The Democrats will probably secure six
electors in the Eastern district and in tho
First; Sixth, Seventh, Eighth and Tenth
Congressional districts. Fusion complicates
the situation in one or tno ot the districts,
and the Republicans may got ono moro or
one less than tho eight figured on, hut that
is the range of probabilities except in the
event of an unexpected candidate.
Indiana -Republicans have a new plnn
for political rallies. Nightly meetings are
being held in rural districts, and ten
speakers each talk ten minutes.
In Alabama the Kolbites have made a
deliberate practice of withholding them
selves front tbo public discussions or their
adversaries to such an extentas to causa tho
Democratic 'managers considerable annoy
ance and to practically frustrate the main
object for the accomplishment of which
publlo meetings are held. Those who have
strayed from the Democratic fold cannot be
recovered, since thoy will not come wlthla
the sound of the voice of their former
shepherds, but persist in wandering In new
pasturages. General, Shelley, tho Chair
man of the Democratic State Committee,
realizes the significance of this 'manifesta
tion, and, ' with an apprehension for
the results that may follow, has Issued n
circular letter to the ministers of the gospel,
soliciting their assistance in reaching the
recalcitrant wanderers. "Many 01 our
good people' says 'General Shelley, "have
broken away from the great bodv of con
servative citizens, llnd gone off after teach
ers of strange doctrines and dangerous
polities. Politicians cannot reach them
they, will nothoar the-truth .from such
sources, and ' other means must be em
ployed." He can think of nothing so of
lectlye. to accomplish the purpose desired .as
tho counsel and advice of the miulstors of
the gospel, and the Chairman of the Demo
cratic Committee, thorerore, appeals .to
them. 60 it stems that Mr. liagee will have
to contend against not only the Democratla
politicians but the Democratic preachers as

worth a cent. At least that was the purport
of the decision reached at a meeting of all
tho largo wholesale grocers in this city. Tbo
meeting was held on the request of Mr. W.
F. Osborn, the NewYoik representative of
tho American Sugar Trust. The "plan pro
nosed by Mr. Osborn was the ono known as
the 'equality nnd rebate plan, and after a
half-hour's deliberation it was unanimously
rejected. The plain English or the attitude
or Chicago's wholesale grocers is that they
do not Intend to be dictated to by the Sugar
Trust ns to how and when they shall sell
their sugar. If they want to buy sugar lor
Scents and sell for I cents it is their busi
ness and not any concern of the Sugar
"The rebate plon was pioposed at tho
national meeting or tho wholesale grocers in
New York last June, anil would have been
adopted bad it not boon ror the native oppo
sition of Chicago supplemented by nearly
all the leading houses in Milwaukee, De
troit, Indianapolis, Kansas City nnd St.
Joseph. St. Louis and a few other Southern
points were In favor of it, but it was tem
porarily shelved. The meeting had no'
sooner adjourned than sly work was begun
by tho Trust and its friends to work the op
position over to the scheme, nnd a few
weeks ago u very ingenious circular was
sent out confidentially to tho wholesale
grocers. It is Ingenious because it seeks to
evade the trust law of Missouri by claiming
it would promote competition, and at tho
same time it contains the outline of a plan
thatnould totally destiny all competition
and put the sugar trade entirely in the
bauds of the Trust with power to dictate
price and limit the output."

The 'Debut of a Bad Society Gossip.
The pretty Pittsburg Club Theater was
fnll last night at the opening of'the one
hundred and cl'htv-secon&rpceptlon of tho
Art Society. These receptionsiareiahtais
enjoyable, and it -is seldom-that anjnvita
tion is not used. There was arj exhibition
os attractive photographs and. autotypes,
part of th'e large 'and varied assortment of
art objects gathered in the course"of his
travels by Mr. Charles S. 'Graham, who
kindly loaned thorn to the' Art Socjety for
its reception. Besides this therp'was nn in
teresting musical progra'mme,uhdor'the-dt-)

wliohas recently' returned from 'Dresden,
where she has been pursuing her-muslcal
siuuics. uer voloe Is verv cloar an,u sweer,
nnd her selections were wftnrily anplaiftcd
by her listeners. Mr. John T. Irwin played
several numbers on, his violin in bis own
inimitable manner, nnd Mr. Carl Better pre
sided at the piano. With these 'artists, and
n programme that included the names of
most or the (treat masters, it is almost su
perfluons to say that a rare mmlcal treat
was enjoyed. The Art Society Is a popular
organization, and is becoming better known
and liked evory day.
A delightful entertainment was given
Inst evening by thn Epworth League of tho
North Avenue M. E. Church, Allegheny, be
fore a very large -audience. Miss Sue E.
Lytle was in charge, and'she did her work
well, for her selection of contributors to the
pleasure o( the evening could hardly have
been excelled. Tableaux, illustrating scenes
from different books, ' wero prosontod,
the audle.ico guessing tho names of the
works represented. Some of the guesses
wero a long. way from the right answer, but
eventually all were named by some one in
the room. Miss Stella B'luher.road 11 paper

Miallenberger. There was an oration by Mr.
Edward Young, a flute solo by Mr. Jackson,
n pianoforte selection by Miss Lillian
Smith, and singing by the Epwortn Octette.
Tho entertainment was brought to a close
by a well-considered address on-"The Book

W. S. Lockward,
Tuesdat is regarded as one of the fash
ionublo nights of Pittsburg. As a rule, there
aro a number of receptions and other social
affairs in progress on that evening, and
society generally "tnkes up its , mind to bo
puzzled to attend all the entertainments to
which it receives invitaiions. Last night
was rather an exception to the rule. It.
offered very few society events for consid
eration, tho principal one being the Art So
ciety reception, which was certainly enjoy
able enough to make up for the scarcity of
private parties and the utter Inck of fash
ionable weddings. It U postble that All
Halloween, which this year Ins'stod upon
coming on the plebeian Monday; took the
place of the uual Tuesday gatherings.
Whntever the cause, it is a fact, that a
quieter Tuesday in the' society world of
Pittsburg has not been seen tills ie'nson.
