It la said that Cleveland in giving an
order for some new books for his library
ordered two of the latest cyclopedias.
Getting ready for the fall speeches
Emperor William is a firm believer

The White house displayed no
mourning last Saturday when Sheridan
was buried, but it did at the death of
Jake Thompson who plotted treason to
this Nation. It is easy to see with
which side are our President's sympa
thies. The harrowing accounts of the sink
ing of the Thingvalla with the long list
of the lost recalls the many terrible ac
cidents by colisions that have occurred
off the Atlantic coast. Indeed there is
need to pray for those who "go down
to the sea in ships."
Last December, when the President
issued his famous free-trade message,
Democracy called it a keynote, and
gleefully called themselves free-traders.
Now their noses are red with wrath,
and they blush mad clear behind the
ears at a hint that they are for free-trade.
The Republican papers of Kansas
should be patient. When John Martin
declard that he intended to make a de
cent party of the Democracy, he did
not mean that he intended to do it in a
day, a week, or even a month. He rec
ognizes that it takes longer to perform
muacles now than it did in the days of
the apostles. Atchison Globe, Ind.
'A tariff for revenue with incidental
protection" is the cry of the Demo
cratic party. "Protection for labor,
American industries and American
markets with incidental revenue" is
the watchword of the Republican party.
II. B. Kelly ef McPherson county,
will go to the State Senate this winter
loaded with a bill to stop the foreclos
ure of chattel mortgages for a period
of five years, in order to give the farm
era a chance to catch up. He will also
take along a supply of capital removal
In every city in agricultural Kansas
there should be located manufacturing
establishments that would give employ
ment to operators. The wants of these
working people create a demand for
food, clothing and shelter, and the pro
ducts of the farm will be ever in de
mand. Nothing will be wasted in
transportation and the farmer and
the laborer will reap the entire harvest
"When salt was. on the free list in
1860, it sold for $3 per barrel and the
coopers who made the barrels earned
75 cents per day. The tariff is now 25
cents per barrel yet salt is furnished at
the wells in Michigan for 60 cents per
barrel and the coopers earn 52.50 per
day. The Mills bill wants it back on
the free list again. Have the advocates
of that iniquitous measure lost all their
The agricultural products of the
United States, outside of tobacco and
cotton, amount to $3,000,000,000 per
year. Of this quanttiy about 92 per cent
is consumed at home and only about 8
per cent is exported, that is to say the
home market takes 92 per cent and the
foreign market takes only 8 per cent.
Thus can be seen the importance of the
home market and the comparative in
significance of a foreign market to our
farmers in'the consumption of their
Has it ever occurred to our friends,
the enemy, that Indiana has never gone
Democratic, since the war, except when
Thomas A. Hendricks was on the
ticket? Grant carried Indiana in 1868
and 1872. In 1876, Hendricks being
the Vice Presidential nominee, the
State went Democratic. In 1880 Hen
dricks was not a candidate and Indiana
cast her vote for Garfield. In 1884 the
Democrats again carried the State,
Hendricks again being the nominee for
Vice' President. And now the Hen
dricks family are heart and band against
Cleveland, so the prospects for a Dem
ocratic victory is very slim.
Another Prominent Convert.
It is out of the question for any
single newspaper to keep a record of
the companies, the regiments, the bat
talions of leading citizens, of thinking
men, who are deserting the party of
Cobden-Club free trade for that organ
ization which believes in protection to
the American people and to American
industries. Grover Cleveland is per
sonally obnoxious to a large following
of his party that is certain. But his
open indorsement of Britain's policy
and the evident satisfaction with which
his words and actions have been re
ceived on the other side of the Atlantic
have disgusted thousands more who
will either not vote or will support
Harrison. This movement is wide
spread. In single sections of New
York State enough men have publicly
announced their change of heart to
overthrow Cleveland's majority of 1047
Even here in Kansas Democrats are
turning every day to Harrison and
Morton. The Bourbon journals are
fond of saying that the converts to Re
publicanism are men of no standing.
Perhaps here is an example that will
have some weight with them.
Hon. J. J. Barkep, chairman of the
Democratic Central Committee of Don
iphan county, made public on Wednes
day a letter in which he withdraws all
allegiance to the party of his former
faith and promises fidelity to Republi
canism. As an indication of the drift
of public opinion the letter is interest
ing. Its full text is:
Troy, Kan., July 31. 1888 To the
Democratic Central Committee of Don
iphan county: I hereby tender my
resignation as chairman of your honor
able body, to take place at once. My
reasons for so doing are that I believe
the position upon the financial ques
tions of the day. dictated to the Demo
cratic convention at St. Louis by Pres
ident Cleveland and embraced in the
Mills tariff bill, is detrimental to the
best interests of our country; and be
lieving this with sincerity, I find it Im
possible to any longer affiliate with the
Democratic party, and have cast my lot
with the party which I believe repre
sents a policy which is most conducive
to the welfare of the producers, manu
facturers and laborers of this country.
I believe in protecting American labor,
and am opposed to building up British
institutions at the expense of wage
workers of America. 1 shall be found
hereafter working in the ranks of the
Republican party. J. J. Barkep.
Our e. c. quotes approvingly the fol
lowing: "Three months after the pass
age of the Mills bill there would 'not be
an idle person in the country willing to
work." Of course not, the thousands
of workmen then idle would realize
that they might much better starve to
death at once than die by slow torture
under the pittance wages that would
then be given. We are glad to see that
the Gazette recognizes the dangers in
volved in the passage of the bill.
The Democrats of this district ar
making consummate fools of themselve?
in talking of electing the congressman
from the Fifth District. Some of the
best Democrats in t'uis town know that
Tobey's nomination was started simply
as a joke. The Union Labor fellows
are also showing their long ears in talk
ing of taking Anderson off the ticket.
They cut a great stvell and were the
lauehiug stock of everybody when they
nominated Anderson in the first place.
Hoffman, the little Enterprise monop
olist, slopped over dreadfully in a
speecli before the convention, and it
would be a dead give-away to go back
on all that was said. Anderson can go
to Indiana if he likes, the people will
take care of him here. Salina Republican.
"Regrets the Mistake."
The Western School Journal for
August copies our editorial on 'The
The influx of a large population of
farmers into Kansas may raise the price
of land, but it will not raise the price
of farm products. Farmers do not sell
their surplus products to their fellow
farmers. The influx of a large manu
facturing population would directly
and materially raise the price of every
thing produced upon the farm, because
all men are consumers of farm products,
and if a man is engaged in some other
calling than farming he' is compelled to
buy farm products, while he produces
nothing which will compete with the
farmer in the price he is to obtain for
his products Encourage the manufacturer,
Examination Farce" as indicative of
the feeling throughout the State re
garding the last set of examination
questions. In an editorial comment it
is stated that Supt. Lawhead "informs
us that in the proof part of question
four was omitted, and that tbeoue3tion
should not be considered by examiners
in issuing certificates," and that he
"regrets the mistake."
A pretty time to "regret mistakes"
when the certificates have all been
issued! What do we pay a State Su
perintendent for if it is not to see that
there are no "mistakes" in giviag our
teachers a fair and just examination?
The Union Labor party has all the
vices in an exaggerated form of the
Democratic party, and it is very for
tunate for the country that it is not as
strong. The Democratic party aims,
for present purposes, to set one section
of the country against another, but the
Union Labor party aims to set man
against man; neighbor against neigh
bor; labor against capital; employed
against employer. It is based on the
meanest passion of the human soul,
envy, and ought naturally to draw all
the meanest men in the country to its
standard. The Union Labor idea is to
borrow money of a man. and-then call
him a "robber" for letting you have it;
to hate a rich man because he is rich;
to abuse an employer because he is an
employer, to curse the prosperous fort
their prtfcpenty, J2foble PrehtiB.
Why He is for Harrison.
T. A. Reynolds, an ex-soldier, a
Democrat, and a traveling man with
Henry W. King & Co., clothing, says
the Chicago Tribune, has become con
vinced of the error of his ways and has
joined the Republican forces. He will
be found this fall in the Harrison
camp, "voting as he shot."
It is not improbable that a conversa
tion that recently occurred between
Mr. Reynolds and an Englishman had
something to do with his change of
heart. It took place on a train in Kan
sas. The Englishman announced him
self the agent of a powerful English
syndicate. The Chicago man inquired
his errand in that part of the country.
"O," replied the Englishman, "we
hold mortgages on pretty nearly every
thing in sight, don't you know."
Here he gave a comprehensive sweep
of bis arm in the direction of the sur
rounding horizon, and continued with
the air of the landed proprietor:
"We're watching things closely just
at present, for if the Democrats carry
the election all of these mortgaged
lands will come into our hands. With
Cleveland and free trade,"sald the En
glishman with the air of a man stating
an ordinary business proposition,
"these farmers can't keep up the pay
ment of their interest, don't you know,
and we shall foreclose on their farms.
And it will be a jolly good thing for
the country, too. The trouble with
you Americans is that you've no class
distinctions. One man's as good as
another, and a common navy, by Jove,
working with his hands today may be
a landed proprietor or a member of
Congress tomorrow. That's ail because
the common people get too much wages.
Three shillings (75 cents) a day is (juite
enough for any of them, and low wages
will keep them in their place, don't
you know. I'm a Democrat myself,
you see. The English people are heart
ily in sympathy with you Democrats."
By this time Reynolds was hot and
announced that he wouldn't vote for
any party that had that sort of friends.
Thenceforth he was for Harrison and
protection. During the awkward pause
that followed a dark-eyed, languid bru
nette on the other side of the car re
marked with a flash in her eye that she
was a Southerner by birth and educa
tion and a Democrat born and bred,
but that if that was the program she
guessed shed see what she could do in
the way of getting somebody to follow
the Chicagoan's example. If she keeps
her word Harrison is sure of one vote
at least in the "Solid South."
Mr, Patrick Ford, the editor of the
Irish World and leader of the Irish
Americans in this country, cannot say
enough in praise of Mr. Blainb and pro
tection. His paper supports the Re
publican ticket most enthusiastically.
In the last issue, speaking of the grand
reception accorded Mr. Blaine in New
York, it says:
This courteous recognition was due
to the working people who constitute
tho wealth-producers of the country
and whose interests are more directly
affected than any other by the free
trade conspiracy represented by Cleve
land and his labor-haling allies of the
South, assisted, as in 1864, by England
and her Tory-worshipers in America.
With the wage-workers the issue
whether the Protective system shall be
permitted to be undermined and de
stroyed is of Immediate and most press
ing importance, and they come to welj
come Mr. Blaine, not as a Republican,
but as the foremost champion of pro
tection and encouragement to diversi
fied industry in America.
The reason that wheat is worth $1.25
a bushel in Liverpool when it is worth
only 70 cents In Abilene, is because it
costs just 55 cents per bushel to ship
wheat from Abilene to the mouth that
eats it in Liverpool. If by the encour
agement of home industries the mouths
that eat the farmers' surplus wheat
could be brought to Kansas or Missouri,
the consumer could pay just as much
for his wheat and the price would go
into the farmers' pocket instead of into
the middlemen's and the coffers of
The New York Herald (Dem.) reads
Chairman Brice this little lecture:
Mr. Calvin S. Brice, who is at the
head of the Democratic campaign, may
accept it as a kindness if we inform
him that the Democratic party is not
to be carried to victory by any political
nickel-plate railway arrangement. It
will be more useful forhim to hear this
in a friendly spirit now than to wait
until November, when he may be com
pelled to hear it in a tone far from
friendly. This advice is prompted by
Mr. Brice's publicly quoted comment
that the Republicans have an advan
tage over the Democrats in this, that
they have "a candidate who helps himself."
