one of those Ameriean iudHlrie wlreh
make the loudest complaint about the
oppression of American labor by lnn
oeratie policy, as emineiated in the
.Mills lull. 1 hi in-liuitinn has a mo
nopoly nf the maniifaetui't; nf so'la :ih
in the l'uit4' Stales. It emplo) a
lare numlK-r of workmen, and pas
ihem the nmnilieeiit remniieraliuii of a
dollar and a half a dny. The men
work alternate weeks day and nihl
in idiifu of twelve hour each, and,
twelve bourn of night work pavn no
more than twelve hours of day work
The company that treat itfi men in tin;
lilreral Hpirit as to compensation und
hourn of labor dee lures dividend ran
ging from 10 per cent, per annum up,
and it pays salaries on tho ftcalu of
i?'JU,WU per year to Us superintendent
This su (Turin K industry that not on
ly protects against being deprived of
tho protection it now h;ts, but would
like to get more if possible, is a cor
poration the stock of which is very
lanrely owned by foreigner. Its ma
chinery Is nearly all imported from
huropu and the whole institution is
an odious to the farmers and workmen
of the vicinity of Syracuse as any con
cern can be.
What a crying shame it would be it
this Nourishing mouupjly were dupri
vud of the protection .ho Kcpubliiaiis
have given it and the people who use
soda tub and other products of tlie
factory were allowed to buy them of
those who would sell them on mole
Considering luu amount of dividends
tamed and the oxtenl of salaries paid
by the present iiiHiituliou, it is ipdu
possible tha;, notwithstanding all its
lamentations, it might survive tarill
reduction. At any rale it would not
get its labor cheaper than it does now,
ami the workingmen, who ate, after
all, to be taken into account in such
matters, would haieuo reason to de
plore the change.
It is perhaps unncee-H-y to add
that this corporation is a tnont enthusi
astically Uepuhhcaii in-liluiioit, and
omits no measure to induce the peo
ple in its employment to Mipporl tlie
monopoly presidential ticket ami hur
rah for Jim lhddcii and Jiiu lUaine.

Ttitimony ot a Harrison.
(i. W. Harrison of New York, a great-
grandson of (jell. W illiam Henry Har
rison, and therefore a near relative ol
the present Kepubliean cundidate for
resident, is in this city. Strange as
it may seem, Mr. Harrison is an indent
upporler of Cleveland and i'huriuan.
He formerly lived in India lapolis,
where his father was a bauker.bui four
years ago removed to New York. Mr.
Harrison says the Republicans in New
York do not talk even of earning thut
State, but placd their hopes elsewhere.
A few week ago when he came West
ever budy was talking Harrison. This
trip it's all Cleveland, and he finds the
Canadian retaliation messages has
caused it. it is the turning point, hu
says, with all the border Stutes Thai
and tarill reform, bethinks, wiil sweep
the deck. Mr. Harrison beloug.- to the
Democratic Club m New York, and he
says they were never, us enthusiastic us
now, iL C Star.
Mr. Peering Talks.
Kev. Ileu Heeriug, a prohibition or
ator of some reputation in this slate,
has favored the public with his View a
rcgardiug what would constitute a
good local option law. flu thin ks
tuut the preseut law is not as substan
tial as il should he. lu many respects
his ideas are original, and wa win ru
ler to his plans bnell) .
Hu says that the tjueslion ol dram
hop license should bo voted for and
agaiust ouly upou the ruipjesl of yariy
lavunug license. The tax should not
be less '.liau jW, all of which should
go directly into the state revenue fund,
and not 1 to counties and cities grant
ing license. Hu would have saloons
ouly in public places ana prohibit the
use of chairs, tables, screens, back
loors, side doors, etc. He wou!d ui-
so re-pure the dramshop keeper to give
bond for hues, costs and the natural
cuuseueuces arising from individuals
drinking too much intoxicants. He
further provides lines and imprison
ment for gaming devices of an) kind,
and a violation uf the Sunday law or
keeping open after lu o'clock at night
or opening before U o'clock in tue
morning is made a heinous oileuau
against the law.
Mr. Ueering argues that if localities
were deprived ol all dramshop revenue
one great reason for licensing saloons
would cease. He suggests several
otln-r r tonus, which he thinks me
original, but as a matter uf fact the)
are embodied iu the liceuse law now
in force iu tins statu. -Jclu rsoit (it)
