It is said that when Cleveland

Indiana has gone Republican twenty
out of twenty-eight years. Guess it is
safe enough to count on it this year.
It is said that Mrs. Cleveland has dis
carded the bustle. "What deep, dark

with a microscope of extra strong

Swedenborg said, "Some men's ideas

entific men account for it on the theory
that there are a great many of them on
the Democratic ticket."
The Democrats have scarcely recov
ered yet from the declaration made by
Samuel J. Randall in his last tariff
speech, that "the theories that went
down in 1861 will never dominate this
government." Mr. Randall is too un
compromising a protectionist for his
party. It is a wonder that they do not
read him out of it as it is becoming so
rapidly a straight-out free trade organ
ization. While the tariff bill has been in
progress people have almost lost sight
of the investigation into the corruption
of the government printing office at
Washington. The work has been pro
gressing, however, and the revelations
of rottenness are daily growing worse
and worse. This promises to make a
nice mess for civil service reform to
If the Democrats keep on deserting
their party, and declaring for Harrison,
Morton and Protection for the next
three months at the rate they have
been for the past two weeks, it is a
question whether all the shovels man

cade will be sufficient to dig out Cleve
land from under the snow which will
bury him next November.
Prof; Ganfield is getting a thorough
scorching at the hands of some Kansas
'papers, the Lawrence Tribune and
Hutchinson News particularly, on ac
count of his free-trade views . As his
political economy class turned out one
of the prize-winning essays on "Pro
tection's benefits" we judge that his
presence in the University is rather
after the "terrible example" order a
picture of what men should not believe.

Levi P. Morton fitted out a ship at

&s far as the Democratic party is
concerned the wool-growers of this
country are to be left to compete with
the cheap wool of Australia and other
equally cheap wool growing countries.
That much is now settled by the pas

which provides for just that sort of
Those who said this was going to be
a clean campaign, says the Inter Ocean,
free from mud-slinging methods and
personalities, miscalculated the re
sources of the Democratic campaigners.
The "dollar-a-day" invention and the
Chinese rubbish show that Morey is
still on the pay-roll of the Democratic
committee. There will be more mud
projected from the batteries on that
side than Barnum's seven mules can
draw on a down grade.
And now "Bleeding Kansas" moves
in her loyalty, and shows signs of com
ing over to the Democratic side. Bir
mingham (Ala.) Age.
Kansas, in this year of grace, 1888,
will "move in her loyalty" just as she
moved when Democratic Missouri
undertook to make a slave State of her
fertile leagues. She will move along
the line as she did when later traitors
to the Union undertook to trail the old
flag in the dust. The Democratic par
ty will have to be "born again" and be
baptized and held under until the bub
bles cease, before loyal Kansas can be
induced to vote that ticket.
The nomination of Melville W.
Fuller for chief justice of the United
States has, as we predicted it would be,
been confirmed by the Senate, and he
is now assured of that high office.
Whatever may have been the objec
tions urged against him, and some of
them were valid ones, he is now the
highest judicial officer of the nation,
and criticism should not be visited
upon him unless his official acts justify
it. As to Mr. Cleveland's wisdom in
making the choice he did, opinion will
be divided and much condemnation
will be expressed that he did not choose
a better-fitted man.
Hard on the Union Labor Party.
The immense crop of small grains
already harvested, the vast amount of
excellent hay now going up, the splen
did pasture, the sleek, fat stock, the
scarcity of chinch bugs, the almost
daily soaking rains and the excellent
prospect of a mammoth corn crop are
terribly severe and disheartening for
the Union Laborites. Their chief, in
fact,' their only source of comfort is
failure of crops and hard times. When
these are the order of the day the
Union Laborite is happy. Then he
can grumble, grumble, grumble all day
long. He can arrange the words
"mortgage," "monopoly," "two per
cent," "Jay Gould" and "railroad" in
all their possible orders, and each new
order gives him added delight. A fore
closure is a richer morsel for him than
a wedding or a picnic. It opens a new
field for his grumbling tongue. He
grumbles at his neighbor who is indus
trious and frugal and saves something;
he grumbles at his wife; he grumbles
at his Maker, but he never grumbles at
himself he is too supremely selfish for
that. The present excellent crops will
place thousands of Kansans squarely
on their feet and in consequence the
Union Laborite is sad beyond measure
and refuses to be comforted poor fel

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castor
All Kind of Produce.
That Whisky Howl.
It is tlieoolicvof a few sDrimr-balt
Democratic journals like our e. c. to at
tempt to convey the impression that
there is an inconsistency between the
known attitude of the Republicans in
favor of the restriction of the liquor
traffic and the declaration of the Chi
cago platform in favorof abolishing the
United States tax on malt and spiritu
ous liquors rather than break down the
protective feature of the tariff and
lessen the production in this country of
those articles that give employment to
On account of this very reasonable
declaration some Democrats who have
not much respect for the intelligence of
the average voter are growing red in
the face yelling "free whisky" at the
Republicans. We should not be sur
prised to learn that the loudest of these
free whisky shriekers are some of the
very men who, as the result of Repub
lican legislation, have been deprived of
the right to sell whisky. The Repub
licans are not in favor of free whisky.
They want it taxed, and taxed heavily.
They believe, however, that for pur
poses of regulation it can be taxed more
effectively by the States at the point of
consumption than by the United States
at the point of production. The fed
eral tax has not prevented the indefi
nite multiplication of liquor saloons.
The State tax on the other hand, in the
form of a high license charge, has re
duced the saloons of Philadelphia from
6,000 to 1,300, and has brought about
scarcely less improvment in everyplace
wherein high license is in force. Tax
ing the sale of intoxicants rather than
their production operates beneficially
in relieving from taxation the alcohol
used in the arts, for mechanical pur
poses and for medicines. In this way
the medicine for the sick child is made
cheaper, but the whisky which destroys
the peace of homes is made dearer and
more difficult to get. Should the fed
eral taxes on whisky and beer be re
pealed as a last resort to avoid injuring
any industries and throwing men out
of employment, the license charge in
Republican States will undoubtedly be
increased and the revenue which now
goes to Washington to overburden the
national treasury, already full to burstr
ing, will find its way through license
taxes to State and local treasuries,
lighten the taxes on real estate, and
make the saloons pay for some of the
mischief they cause in the very place
where their pernicious influence is felt.
Because the Republicans in most of
the Northern States have adopted the
principle of taxing the saloons all that
the traffic will bear, the saloon interest
has arrayed itself solidly against that
party. They will accomplish its defeat
if they can, and if they can delude any
foolith people into voting against the
Republican ticket by persuading them,
through the columns of such sheets as
the Gazette, that the party favors free
whisky, nothing would give them
greater pleasure. Their winking and
chuckling over the free whisky racket
are, however, too obvious. It deceives
as little as did the arraignment in the
Democratic State platform a few years
ago, charging the Republican party
with being false to the principles of
protection. The burglar who turns
and yells "Stop, thief!" at his pursuers
may confuse a stupid policeman, but
the Democratic cry of "free whisky"is
too glaring a fraud to gain credit with
anyone not already bent on the defeat
of the Republican party.
The Vote on the Kills Sill.
The vote on the Mills bill wa3 taken
Saturday at the hour announced in ad
vance by the Ways and Means Com
mittee, after which an adjournment
was taken until evening. The vote
stood yeas, 162; nays, 149. Only two
Republicans voted for it Fitch, of
New York, and Nelson of Minnesota

amendment which was separately voted
on, cotton ties, Gear, of Iowa, voted
with the Democrats, but when it came
to the bill as a whole he returned to
The substantial unanimity of the
two parties was foreshadowed by the
debate and numerous votes on amend
ments, but at the opening of the ses
sion it did not seem probable. It is
especially remarkable that the Repub
licans should be so harmonious. On
the Democratic side was the club of
patronage, wielded unblushingly for
the bill. The administration cham
pioned it from the beginning and re
sorted to all available means to bring
pressure to bear in its favor. No
Democratic Congressman could hope
to get favors from any of the depart
ments who was not in line. Notwith
standing all that Cleveland and his
Cabinet could do four of their own
party refused to vote for the measure.
The Republicans, on the other hand,
had no club which they could use if
they would, yet the "kickers" in the
two parties stood 4 to 2. Evidently
the free-trade sentiment in the Repub
lican party has almost reached the

Special correspondence of the Reflector:
Manchester, Kas., July 19. This
little city, just one year old last Fourth
of July, is the gem of the northwest
Dickinson. Located as it is at the
junction of the Minneapolis and Con
cordia branches of the C.K. & W., it
bids fair to continue its past rapid
growth through the future.
It is fortunate in having a body of
business men who are for Manchester
first, last and all the time. No petty
jealousies or disagreements are allowed
to interfere with hard, united work for
the advancement of the town.
While here, we have had the
pleasure of meeting Mr. Clark, of the
bank of Manchester, and found him to
be a very pleasant and affable gentle
man. We believe the people of Man
chester and vicinity will find the new
bank worthy of their confidence and

old Abilene boy,has almost completed a
magnificent store building on one of
the best corners in town. He will oc

stock of general merchandise. We
bespeak for William a liberal patronage.
The bank of Manchester has erected
a neat and commodious bank building
in which they opened up their bank
yesterday. It will be in charge of Mr.
