ksit any wonder that having accom
hshed this Czar-like purpose, Speaker
Redexclaimed: "Thank God, the
House of Representatives is no longei
a deliberative body ?"
After discussing the tariff, so far as
it relages to the mnterests of farmers,
the Governor continued as follows:
But not only has the Republican
Congress stooped to the sharper's tricks
to hoodwink the American farmer im
the matter of tariffs on his products,
but it has made his living even more
expensive than it has hitherto been. It
has heavily taxed nearly every article
of wear, many of his agricultural im
plemnents, his hulling materials and his
household furniture. Protection of the
Mcnley sort zoeans the taxation on
thegreat body of the consumers to en
rich a few manufacturers. Its burdens
will fall particularly upon the poor.
The people are to- be taxed' 560,000,000
for three years in order that a few
manufacturers may experiment in this
country with the tin-plate industry. If
you think this is a partisan statement
read what a member of Harrison's Cabi
net says albout it in a recent advertise
Tinware is advancing in cost, and
ery soon manufacturers will have
their way, and you and I will have t~o
pay very much more. In view of this
state of things, we made some time
since a large purchase of kitchen tin
ware at. what was a low price then and
would be far lower now in the face of
two advances in makers' price list.
Signed: "John Wanamaker."
'All over the country the effect of
seh legislation has already been to
increase the prices of dry goods and
other hd'usel->ld necessities. The Mc
Kiniey bill has defined sharply the
issue upon which the two parties are
divided. The economic dotrine. which
the party in power now supports, is
one which it would have repudiated
ten years ago, and which some of its
great men-like Blaine-are evidently
desiring to repudiate now. The time
has come when the demands of the
manufacturers and producers are for
wider markets. Our foreign trade last
year was valued at fifteen hundred mi-..
lion d-dllars. Can we afford to jeopar
dize that immense sourse of national
wealth by erecting legislative barriers
to commerce ? I want to see the Ameri
can people busy supplying the markets
of the world withi food and clothing;
American ships carrying our produce
over every sea; the wealth of Europe
and Asia and Canada and South Ameri
can pouring into this country to in
crese the wages of every laborer and
to enrich every citizen. We have the
cmmnani.gnnoition in the contest
for international trade. Shall we strive
for an unhealthy and an unprolitable
expansion of home markets, or shall
we seek an outlet for our surplus pro
ducts in foreign matkets?
The Democratic party recommends
the free admission of raw materials
used in manufaeture. It will not im
pose higher duties than are necessary
to meet foreign competition on articles
which we produce. It will encourage
that international trade which will
keep our farmers and mills busy to
sr.pply foreign wants, thereby iving
steady employment to to labor, increas
ing wages because of the increased de
mand for labor, bringing hundreds of
millions of wealth into the country and
promoting that general happiness and
prosperity to which the nature of our
population and our resources entitle
But what if Europe should retaliate
by checking her imlorts of breadstuffs
ind of cotton and oil and provisions
from the United States? What would
become of us? We sent abroad last
year $742,000,000 worth of goods and
three-fourths of them were agricul
tural products. Suppose, as the result
of this Republican policy of prohibi
tion, E urope should be forced to draw
largely on Canad i and Russia and India
and Asia for their products, what
would become of the American far
mers? What could recompense the
country for loss of this vast market?
What could alleviate the distress
among all classes of our people ?
A distinguished statesman has truly
said that our exports preserve us from
bankruptcy. I tell you, fellow-citizens,
we are playing with fire when we re
sort to such mischievous legislation.
Talk about reciprocity ! This is retali
ation, embargo, prohibition. Well
might Blaine complain that the Mc
Kinley bill will not open a new market
for a single bushel of wheat or barrel of
pork. We ought to feel very greatful
if it does not deprive us of what mar
kets we have.
Then, in conclusion, referring to the
contest in this (the 16th) district, urg
ing every Democrat to vote for John
G. Warwick, the Democratic candidate
For McKinley personally I have the
highest respect. He is a gentlemAn of
integrity, capacity and many other ex
cellent qualities as a citizen and neigh
bor. I have no doubt yon all -think
well of him. He will not deny that he
is a most bitter partisan, and was never
known to support a Democrat for pub
lic position. His friends are now ask
ing complimentary votes in his behalf.
- I want you to refuse them. because he
E represents principles in which you do
not believe. He has no just claims
upon your sufrages as Democrats.
There has never been a partisan outrage
attempted against your party which
McKinley has not supported. He voted
to deprive nine honestly elected Demo
cratic Representatives of their seats ih
Congress. He sustained every arbitra
ry ruling of the despotic Speaker. He
voted for the infamous force bill, by
which he seeks to deprive your party
of every fair opportunity to regain con
trol of this Government. He has been
instrumental in foisting upon the
country an unjust tariff measure,
which can properly Le designated as
the sum of all villanies. He gives you
no assurance that he will pursue any
different course from, that which he
has pursued in the past. He,is not en
titled to the vote of a single true and
upright Democrat who resides in this
distiict. His friends complain that his
district has been "gerrymandered."
But McKinley's voice is silent when
his party friends in other States have
"gerrymandered" other districts against
the Democratic party.
Fellotw-Democrats, the eyes of the
whole country are upon this district,
watching the great contest in which
you are engaged with breathless inter
est. Republican corruption money.
obtained from those who have received
Government favor, will be poured into
this district to debauch its electors
The integrity of the citizens of the dis
trict are at stake. McKinley cannot
shut his eyes to the fact that the funds
for this campaign are being raised in
every factory whose interests his bill
has favored at the expense of the con
sumers of the country. I ask you to
measure out to him the same consider
ation which he extended to those Dem
ocratic Representatives who were oust
ed from theil-seats by his-vote.
The applause during the Governor's
remarks was long and hearty.

HaMrroN, S. C. Oct. 21.-Colonel M.
B. McSweeney, W. J. Causey, J. 0. H.
Sanders and Rev. W. H. Dowling were
arrested yesterday by United States
Constable 'Iilliams of Allendale, on a
warrant issued by Commissioner Mor
gan upon the affidavit of one Riley,
chairman of the Radical party for this
County, charjig them with refusing to
discharge their duty as officers under the
State laws.' The whole affair is trumped
up in the interest of one S. E. Smith,
candidate for a seat in Congress. The
gntlemen above named were carried to
Yamassee this morning to have a hear
ing before Commissioner Eflott.
It seems that Riley brought one hun
dred and ftyor two hundred affidavits
in a 'rpsckto Colonel McSweeney,
and deanded registration certificates
in exchange. The affidavits were sworn
to before a Charleston darkey, knownto
no one in this County, and as they were
not presented by the parties who made
them Colonel McSweeney declined to is
sue certificates.. The other gentlemen
are charged with refusing to administer
oaths to negroes desiring to make affida
vits that they had lost their certificates.
As registration days fell on salesdays it
would have been very inconvenient for
these officers to neglect the duties of
their offices, and they consequently de
clined to do so. Hence this persecu

CricAGo. Oct. 23.-Everybody r.ho
has visited that living tomb, the Joliet
Penitentiary, cannot but feel sorry tc
learn that Robert Gick, the "trusty" o1
Warden Beregren, has fallen from
grace. The solitary figure in convict
garb standing on the narrow platfornw
at the penitentiary depot was the last
recollection that visitors carried away
of the horrors of that dismal place. A
link between the wretchedness withir
the walls and the glad freedom out
doors, the hearty good-by from the
trainmen to the convict as the trait
moved off lingered in the memory oJ
those who heard it like a deathbed part.
ing between friends. Even the train
men themselves, who have long growr
accustomed to see the half-free convict
swinging his lamp at the stopping
place at all hours of the night, have
never been able to overcome the feel.
ing of sadness and sympathy as they
have watched him trudge back to his
wretched prison home, faithful as a
dog returning to its collar and chain.
They all knew his story. Years ago
when first the new "trusty" appeared
at the depot, a single glance into his
clear blue eyes was sufficient to make
the trainmen his friends. That Ward
den McClaughrey had made a good se
lection in the new "trusty" was admit
ted even before they heard his story
That he was a life convict, and that his
crime was willful murder, made no dif
ferenQe. Any one could see that he
was hDnest as day-light. and the sym.
pathies of his new associates went oul
to him even before they had learned
the details of his one offense against
his country's laws. Visitors to the
prison who have left the building with
feellings strangely alternating between
repugnance and pity fer the miserable
occupants of the white-washed cells
have seldom failed to question the con
vict guide who escorted them to the
train how it happened that he was it
such a place. And, Indeed, it did ap
pear more than strange that a man oj
his unquestioned honesty should be
among the condemned. Without at
tempting either to minimize his offense
or to appeal for sympathy, Gick would
answer that he had killed a man and
had been sentenced for life. Sever
years ago the crime had been com mit
ted, and seven years ago he had wor
his first suit of stripes. Seven years
hence he would in all probability be
wearing still another suit of stripes
and so on from year to year until
"maybe when I'm an old man I'll ge
out of here."
To hear a young man full of vigor
thus talking hopefully of the time
when he should be an old man and free
once again to earn his daily bread was
painfully sad. Curiosity and sympa
thy demanded a fuller explanation
and the convict would not hesitate t<
give it. It was a very ordinary quar
rel that had resulted in the loss of life
to Gick's victim and the loss of liberti
to Gick himself. Gick was a hostler in
the employ of a horse trader in South
ern Illinois. Between his employe1
'and a neighboring dealer a bitter feud
had long existed, and whenever neces
sity arose for business negotiations
between the two Gick always acted as
representative of his employer. Or
one of these occasions high words aros
between Gick and-the rival horse deal
er. A fight seemed imminent. Ac
cording to Gick's story his opponeni
was on the point of drawing a knifE
when a friend thrust a revolver intc
Gick's hand. A second later the horsE
dealer was dead, shot through the heart
by a bullet from Gick's gun. Ther
followed" a long imprisonment and
trial. Popular opinion ran high thai
the deed had been instigated by Gick's
employer. Every inducement was of
fered to Gick to confess that his em
ployer had actuated the crime. But tc
every appeal tick replied that the kill.
ing had been done in self-defense, andi
that if he were placed in the same po
sition again-an angry opponent about
to draw a knife, and a revolver thrust
into-his own hand at the instant wher
his lite seemed in most imminent peri)
-he would act just as he had done.
Sentenced to the penitentiary fox
life, Gick accepted his fate as stoically
as he had undergone the ordeal of trial
and jail imprisonment. His new life
began in the harness shop, where his
conduct was so exemplary that War
den McClaughrey singled him out as
his "trusty" or confidential servant. In
this capacity almost unlimited confi
dence was reposed in the convict. The
journey to and from the station, which
is within a stone's throw of the prison
gates, was the least of the chances
thrown' in Gick's way to escape had he
so desired. As confidential servant to
the warden Gick was often sent, dress.
ed in civilian's clothes, intb the city of
Joliet. The fast horses in the warden's
stable were at the convict's disposal
whenever, as often happened, his duties
took him to any considerable distance
from the prison. Thus it happened
that on the streets offJoliet the convict
became one of the lest known figures.
People would stop to exchange good.
day with the honest-looking fellow.
Acquaintances began .to multiply, and
within a radius of a dozen miles there
were few who had not a good word to
say on behalf of Robert Gick, the war
"VWouldn't you like to get out of
prison ?" was a question put to Gick a
dozen times a day, to which his invari
able reply was, "I would give my right
arm for libez ty, but not my honor. In
the eye's of the law I am a murderer,
butl1 can stand that rather than feel
that I am not honest. I never deceived
a man who trusted me, and I don't pro
pose to begin now.".
But alas for the poor fellow's sense of
honor. In a moment of madness, in
fatuated by a woman's glances and
morally blinded by the fumes of liquor,
he decided to throw away his moral
obligation and to elope with a woman
of ,Joliet. Still the old feeling ot friend
liness, born of honesty and trust, saved
Gick at least from the actual breach of
trust which he had contemplated.
Among his friends in the prison were
many who, though wearing convicts'
garb, were yet, in Gick's opinion, trust
worthy. To leave them without a word
was something he had not contem
plated, and in the moment when his
plans for freedom seemed on the verge
of completion, he turned to say good-by
to those whom he had trusted. Then
came the catastrophe.
Milton's "Paradise Lost" contains no
sadder picture than that presented by
the unfortunate young fellow, torn
from the semi-freedom whicb a convict
alone could appreciate; torn from the
society of sympathizing friends in the
city; torn from the company of the
woman for whom he was prepared to
sacrifice even honor, and banished from
the connidence of the warden, who from
a friend now becomes a harsh taskmas
ter. Chained to the door of the solitary
dungeon in the prison, Guick bitterly
amented his folly throughout Friday
night, and on Saturday morning he
found himself condemn~d over again
to the routine of prison life, lockstep
cell, workshop and prison fare. His
hopes of pardon blasted, well may Gick
repent in bitterness his momentary
forgetfuliness of duty, while visitors
and trainmen who miss the pleasant
face and cheery greeting of their old
acquaintance will sigh a word of regret
for the poor fellow.
