The Eepublican club of Abilene has
arranged for a grand county rally Oct.
20th. Let every Republican in Dick
inson county prepare to be in attend
ance on this the greatest meeting that
will be held in the county this year.
The fact that many commodities are
sold in this country for less than the
amount of the duty upon them does
not in the least disturb the average
free-trader iwho declares that prices
are increased exactly by the amount of
the duty imposed.
Congressman Hawley made the re
mark the other day that "President
Cleveland could and should be im
peached for his flagrant violation of
and total disregard of the civil service
laws, but it wouldn't pay." Let him

The wonderful extempore speeches
made by Lincoln on his way from
Springfield to .Washington in 1861 and
Blaine's famous speeches in 1884 are
being surpassed by the wonderful
efforts of Gen. Ben. Harrison at his
home in Indianapolis. He is virtually
stumping the country by telegraph.
The fictitious letter being circulated
by the State Democratic committee as
written by Chairman Booth of the
Republican committee is about the
most despicable act that has been
stooped to in Kansas this year. The
letter was never seen by Mr. Booth uu-
I til after its publication in a Democratic
Mayor Hewitt has accepted a renom
ination as Mayor of the city of New
York. He will no doubt be re-elected.
That he is an open enemy of President
Cleveland augurs ill for the Great Ve

The St. John speech was exactlj
what was expected of the gentleman
a free-trade, anti-Republican harangue,
exhibiting throughout a strong sympa

and advocating hostility to the onlj
party that has ever taken one practical
step in the direction of prohibition.
Why does not Mr. St. John proclaim
himself an assistant Democrat at oncer
Mr. Henry Watterson, the great
Democratic leader, admits this much:
Southern furnace men should beat
in mind that a high duty on import :
will keep up an active competition ii
Noithern furnaces, while a vary moder
te duty would protect a fair compett
tion, while greatly enlarging their fiel
by closing many Northern furnaces on
account of the cost of production.
This is the real animus of the free
trade cry. It is a policy designed t
ruin Northern industries for the benefit
of the South.

All Hope Abandoned.
The Democracy of Dickinson county
has given the most striking evidence
of its weakness that could be asked for.
During the past few weeks the Demo
cratic leaders have boasted of their
strength and have claimed to be able to
"sweep everything" at the coming
election. So loud and long have been
their cries that a few deluded individ
uals actually thought that there was
something in it. What has been the
The Democratic Senatorial conven
tion met in solemn conclave to put up
the invincible man who was to do the
grand sweeping act. The might
chiefs of the Bourbon camp spent an
hour and a half in what? In one bj
one deploring tLe excessive weakness
of the Democratic party in Dickinson
and Clay counties, and in resolving
that "the Democrats of this district
deem it inexpedient aud unwise U
nominate a candidate."
They were the weakest and inos!
pusillanimous lot of chiefs that evei
met in council and their whimpering
withdrawal of their former boasts was
enough to make the face of a graven
image wrinkle with laughter. It was
one grand, unanimous and enthusiastic
crawfish act and a full aud free ad
mission of their weakness.
But that is not all. There was a
purpose behind the action. For weeks
the Union Labor leaders and the Dem
ocratic bosses have been holding inter
views in this city. Day after day the
have walked up and down the streets,
arm in arm, consulting as to the best
means of "downing" the Eepublican
party. And the action of the conven
tion is the outcome of those consulta
tions. It means that the Democratic
votes of this county are for sale to tht
Union Laborites, Prohibitionists oi
any other party that will pay for them.
The only question that remains it
whether the bosses can deliver their ar
ticle. "We do not think that the great mas
of Democratic voters of this county are
such fools that even after their leaders
have admitted their weakness by fail
ing to put up a candidate for Senator,
their votes can be delivered to the
highest bidder as if they were cattle.
We give them credit for having moie
sense than that.
Father McGlynn says that "for three
months before Henry George came out
for Cleveland, he could see the change
working in him." The good father is
slightly deceived. Henry George is
uow where he was fifteen years ago;
che change was merely throwing off th
disguise and appearing in his real robes.
He was always a free-trade Democrat.
He never believed in taxing anything
except the credulity of the people, and
that was for the purpose of gathering
shekels for George. His heart is opet
to the distress of the world, but below
and above all that, his idea of charitj
begins invariably at home. In othei
words, he always looks out sharply for
George. If he is advocating free trade
and Mr. Cleveland's election this year
instead of the cause of the poor, as he
was last year, it is because he believes
it will pay better.
We do not wish to be mistaken as to
our position in opposing Mr. Malottfor
Representative. The fact that he is a
bankerin no way detracts from his high
Standing in society and business circles,
aor ti it in any way incompatible with
the holding f an executive or judicial
office. In some cspcts a banker is
the fittest man for roaByjBxecutjye and
clerical positions. His nomination for
the Legislature, however, by the Dem-'
ocrahc party jyhich is going before the
people upon a jaiqrm having lower
interest laws lor its .chief plank, in
claim if not intact, is an .inconsistency,
I a hica voters will not be slow to recod-;
A good story of the recent reunion of
veterans in Columbus, Cv, is the fol
lowing: During the secret session of
the grand encampment, a message was
received from Grover Cleveland ex
pressing regrets at his inability to be
present- Immediately an old soldier
arose and asked if the President had
been invited. "No," was the quick
answer of the commauder. Thereupon
the veteran arose again and moved
that the matter be "referred to the
committee on pensions." This little
bit of sarcasm was hailed with the
wildest applause, and the mover was
the Lero of tha hour.
