It is being remarked that the only
three certainties this year are death,
taxes and Democratic defeat.
Pig iron, under a free-trade tariff,
cost $34.85; now it sells for $18 and the
duty is $6.70. Oh yes, the duty is
added to the price.
The Plumed Knight seems to be
about as able to demolish the enemy as

industries in Kansas benefits every far
mer by putting down the price of man
ufactured goods, by putting up the
price of everything the farmer pro
duces, by increasing the value of the
farm land, by lessening the taxes on
farms and placing it upon manufactur

The writer of heavy editorials for the
poor little potato-bug addendum, dis
couraged by the cold reception his
sheet is receiving, sends forth a mourn
ful wail, abusing Abilene's dailies
from which he re-writes all his news
that is not furnished him in plates.
As he has, in the past few years, de
monstrated to the public's entire sat
isfaction his utter inability to conduct
adauVpaper himself (except to con
duct it to its grave) no wonder he is
bitterly envious of the prosperity and
success of others.
"The tax on iron makes all manufac
tured articles that much dearer,"
says our e. c Let us see about that.
The ' present protective tariff on iron
went into effect in 1861. In one dozen
years from that date the steel manu
facture of Pittsburg alone amounted
to more than the entire importation of
steel. This product was furnished to
consumers at from 2 to 3 cents per
pound less than it was ever furnished
for prior to the protective tariff of 1S61.
even though the duty was three tiling
greater than under a Democratic Uriff.
When the Bessemer .steel works were
undertaken in America the price ol
steel rails manufactured for American
railioads and delivered at English
ports when the present duty was im
posed, was $155 a ton in gold. Now
American mills furnish them at $31.50
to $33.50 per ton, giving the English
manufacturer not over $15.50 per ton
after paying the duty, to pay freight,
out of raw material and labor. Does
this look mbch as if the tariff raised the.
price of steel in America? VeriJy the

In National politics the great parties
are concentrating their forces upon the
doubtful States. Indiana and !New
York are Oiled with speakers and auch
a canvass is being waged as was never
before seen io those commonwealths.
Mr. Hhiine has during the past week
made three of his wonderful speeches
inthefoimer Sate and has been r-
ceiveu wiin an entnusiasm almost un
precedented. The general itnpressioi
is that the Republicans will earn
Hoosierdom by a handsome majority.
In Xew York the open split between
the Cleveland and Hill forces makes the
success of the Republican ticket altnosi
a surety When it is remembered that
a change of one vote in 1,100 will riv
the State to Harrison and that the
mugwump element has come back into
the true fold, the condition of affairs is
Kansas has nothing to worry about

ing St. Peter's seat in heaven. Ihe
chief campaign material of the Denuc-
r.icy is forged letters and whisky buttles,
ai'd the poople are disgusted with both.
In both State and National politics
the idea of protection to American
industries is uppermost In the people's
minds and the free-trade crusade has
received its !eath warrant.

The trade of the Union Laborite3 and

The inteiest in the county ticket
centers upon three offices: Probate
judge, district clerk and Representa
tive for the south district. The Dem
crats are making desperate efforts to
c irry these offices. They concede the
election of Bittinz. Ford, Burton and
B.iker and are trading everything for
these three places. Republicans are
keeping cool and are realizing that in
Messrs. Peck, Anderson and Gibson
they have first-class timber men who
are capable, honest and worthy of con
fidence; and they are, we think, too
wise to trade awuy their clear majority.
The third parties are cutting little
figure anywhere. There is, of course,
a great deal of loud-mouthed blow, but
the result will be that just about the

What Anderson Has Bone.
Some friend of Mr. Anderson has
been compiling his record in the present

Xo one would have supposed from
hearing oor beloved e. c, howl from
morpng till n'ght "reduce the taxes,"
but that the Democratic free trade Mills
bill reduces duties all along the line.
One never would have suspected, had
he listened to the great "whisky
bottle' John Martin, that this same
pet Mills bill really increased the tariff
on an article that is used extensively
by every farmer in Kansas. Here is a
sinule item, steel billets. The present
duty on steel billets is 45 per cent, ad
valorem. In the Mills bill it is in
creased to $11 per ton, which is an
equivalent to 6S.33 per cent. an ad
vance of 45 per cent. Now lee us see
what is made out of these steel billets.
Wire fencing, wh'ch encloses more or
less of every farm in the West, and the
raw material is increased 45 per cent
by this bill; aud if theprinciple of those
who advocate the bill he true, that the
duty is added to the cost, every pound
of wire fencing that comes west will be
increased from one-fourth to one-half
a cent a pound. All this under aDem
ocra'ic bill. But what else is made out
of steel billets? Xails, which every
body uses, which enter into every day
iss of the people. The duty on nails
is i educed 25 per cent, and the raw
material is increased 45 per cent. As
one end goes up the other goes down.
Veril"the tariff is a tax." And this is
flu way the Democratic party is taking
caie of the American farmer.
The Democrats have just as much
c' ranee to elect a State Senator as they
h tve to electany other candidate. You
