The Senate should have passed the
Wilson bill just as it came from the
House within twenty-four hours, or a
few days at the most. The house was
prompt in its efforts to give the peo
ple relief from the evil effects of the
McKinley law, but the same cannot
be said of the Senate. In fact the ac
tions of the Senate are not satisfac
tory to the Democrats of Ohio, so
much so that the central committees
in many counties are being called to
gether to take action, urging the Sen
ate to pass a tariff law upon the lines
laid down in the Wilson bill. If the
Democratic party of Ohio had its way
the Wilson bill would be a law in
short order, and the pledges of the
party to the people redeemed.
The Democratic platform of 1893
was mostly" built of one prominent
plank "Tariff Reform." In the cam
paign that was made on that plat
form David B. Hill, the U. S. Senator
from New York, was induced to make
a number of speeches. In nearly
every one of them he found occasion to
say, "I am a Democrat 1" Last week
in the Senate this same David Hill
opposed its most Democratic features
and tried to enlist opposition to it.
The Wilson bill is the embodiment of
that platform. of '93. Is David B.
Hill a Democrat? If he is he must get
in with the Democratic procession
and march to the time of tariff re
form. : '

county, which has a much greater

ed more money for county purposes
than we did; and still its county or
ders are going to protest ana are not

ton county has scarcely a fund with
money in it.
But why is it the Signal ha never
a (rood word for its own county, or
ever gives its officials credit for what
they do for the best interests of the
naobleT Because it is blinded by
political prejudice, expecting to be
benefltted-thereby at the expense or
the county. Look out for the fel

Pleabanton, Kansas, hag elected
a woman as its mayor. More than
that, she is disorlbed by an admiring
local journal of undoubted veracity as
weighing 240 pounds, with not a
single ounce of superflous flesh. She
announoes that she is going to clean
out the dives and blind pigs of Pleas
anton, and make it the most im
maculately moral town in Kansas.
When the jointists and dlvists size up
her 240 pounds of muscles, bone and
sinew they will olean out without un
necessary delay. The town will need
no police force with 240 pounds of de
termined woman engaged in muni
cipal house-cleaning. .
The condition .of Coxey's arniy as
it prepared to march across the Alle
ghenies from Uniontown to Cumber
land is described as of the most dis
tressing character. Of the 200 there
was hardly an overcoat or blanket
among them. In the most unseason
able attire they were to cross the
mountain ranges in the midst of
storms of rain, sleet and snow, over
muddy mountain roads and with only
barns and out-buildings for the night's
rest. Of course under such conditions
manv will lose their lives or become
disabled for life. While this is going
on with the men, Uoxey ana tus lieu
tenants travel in buggy or on horse
back, sleep in warm rooms and Jive
on the fat of the land, the men having
the scant fare of dry bread .and oc
casionally bits of meat or imitations
of coffee. This business has passed
the bounds of the ridiculous burlesque
it first assumed, and is likely to end
in a tragedy. The amiable Coxey in
leading his dupes on such a fool's er
rand as they are engaged in, with the
possible disasterous results in suffer
ing and death, seems to have a hom
icidal vent. He is responsible for all
that may occur. If any way can be
round to punisn mm under tne law
there should be no delay in applying
it. The most woe-begone tramp that
is crawling across the country has a
happy lot compared to Uoxey's dupes.
The motive of the whole business is
notoriety to advertise himself and
feed a ridiculous vanity. Jf lttsburgh

How Abont Wool?
We heard of a Democrat lately that left
the party beonusethe Democrats were' coins
to rnin the wml industry by putting wool on
the free list. For his benefit and for all those
who are troubled on this subject, and want to
study it. wo here give the figures on wool
from 18152 to 1833. They are taken from the
statistical abstract of 1898, published by the
United States government, and of coarse
must be taken aa eorreot.
It covers the prioe in the eastern markets
of theae grades of wool and all from Ohio,
as follows, fine, medium, and course, for the
month of January. April. July and Ootober
of each year.
It is wo-th the time of all who think tariff
increases the prioe of wool, to oarefally con
sider thi table, for it covers all the tariffs of
the Republican party as well as the free trade
Walker tariff, so called, of the Democratic
paty. We hope a earef nl comparison of the
free trade wool from 1862 will be made with
the tariff wool after the wan
The reason we eall attention to those ne-
riods is beoanse they were times of profound
peaoe, ce when wool was on the free list,

met on this matter, toat we would suggest
that this table be preserved. It is the report
of the government and no man oan dispute

OPPOSITE PARTY INTERESTS.
Defeat oi tte Wilson Bill as Itoantagt
. .. to Uto Republicans. 1. 7. s r '
Passage of the Bill Carrie On the
Pledge of the Democratic Party.
The two parties that are engaged
in the contention about the tariff may
be credited with having a clear under
standing of their positions and of the
effect which the determination of the
question will have upon them.
The Republicans know that if they
should be able to defeat the Wilson
tariff bill it will be a political advan
tage of vital importance to iiioiii. Or
should they be able to force such
changes in it as would diminish the
extent of the refonn intended by it
authors, it would be a result measura
or if they could postpone its passage
they would profit politically by such
It is for these reasons that they are
employing every means of opposition
that lays in their power, for they
Know, on tne otner nana, tnat it tne
bill should be passed with all its pro
visions for tariff reform, their party
will receive a blow from which it will
take a long time for it to recover. It
would dispell the impression that has
so long prevailed in tne minds of a
large number of people that a high
tariff is necessary for the prosperity
ui mo cuuutry; it wuuiu urmg aooui
industrial conditions that would con
vince the people that high tariffs have
done more harm than good, and it
would clearlv Drove the falsitv of the
present Republican contention that
the proposed Democrat tariff chano-ea
produced the present industrial col-,
lapse and business stagnation.
These are certainly sufficient politi
cal reasons for the Republicans to
make every possible exertion for the
defeat, emasculation or delay of the
On the other hand the. Democrats
see the political interests of their par
ty that is involved in this contention.'
The effect of the successful passage
of the Wilson bill which would be so
disastrous to their political opponents,
would be proportionately advantage-,
ous to them. ,
But its failure would bring discredit
and disgrace upon the party. It
would impress , the people with the
conviction thai the Democracy are
unable to carry out their pledges. It
would make the party an object of de
rision and contempt by displaying its
inability to pass a reform tariff bill
after having for years asked the peo
ple to intrust it with that duty, and
failed when full power was given it
by a great majority of the popular
vote. It would be a weak and foolish
loss of the opportunity of proving to
the full conviction of the people that
the Republican tariff policy has beet
injurious and oppressive, and that
the industrial interests are best pro
moted and the country made more
generally prosperous by the lower
duties and free raw materials of a
Democratic tariff. i .
The two parties are undoubtedlv
conscious of the party interests oppo
sitely involved in this question. Can
there be any wonder that the Repub
licans are flgnting the Wilson bill
with tooth and nail? Would it not be
wonderful disastrously and disgrace
fully wonderful if a Democratic Sen
ate should not pass that bill in every
essential particular? And to the full
limit of the tariff reform promised by
the Democratic party and demanded
by the people.

In this wedding, which took place
at the home of the bride in Flatrock
township, everything was had that
adds so much to the joy of such oc
casions.'' Fathers and mothers were
present to give their children their
blessing; affectionate brothers and
sisters and many friends of the bride
andgroom were there to wish the hap
py couple success. The presents were
many, while the dinner was gotten
up and served by those who knew
how to please people on such occa
sions. We verily believe that every
heart was made glad. The occasion
was concluded with music and appro
priate songs by the bride. May the
future deportment of the couple be
as becoming as in their wedding hour
and their days of life as pleasant as
their marriage day.
