A decision between the policies of
Protection and Free-trade should in no
wise be Influenced by considerations of
sentiment or theory.
The question pre-
Protection sented must be de-
and Business Sense, termined in the
light of experience,
facts, and the ap
plication of these in accordance with
the dictates of plain business sense.
This fact explains in great measure the
attitude of men en farms, in factories
and counting rooms en the one side, and
men of the cloisters, colleges and dream
ing galleries en the ether. It was of
the latter that an eminent French states
men said, " they have no experience,
and hence they cannot fail te take the
wrong reads" when arguing ecenimical
prepositions with respect te Govern
Theorists insist upon taking every
economic preposition into that cleudland
where they delight te dwell, and there
trimming it in conformity with such
notions as they have imbibed; when all
the while there Is neither magic nor
mystery In its make up only the plain
facts of cost and conditions, such as
every geed business man takes into his
calculations of every-day affairs.
Gauged by this standard, nnd applied
te a Natien se marvelously endowed with
natural resources as is the United States,
what is the outlook te the practical man
et affairs? He finds there is timber
in the forests, mineral in the mountains,
plenty of fuel both above and below the
surface. He sees millions of strong
arms crossed ever breasts swelling with
, energy te carve out personal competency
whlle adding te National wealth and
power. Shall nature's gifts remain un
touched, and stalwart men be held back
from channels in which their unham
pered ambition would place them, and
'' they be compelled te remain dependents

is the beginning anil the end of his
I philosophy. But the practical man of
affairs knows that foreign product will
net be imported unless buyers are ready
te take them off his hands and pay
something mere than mere cost charges.
Kxperlence has also taught him that
the only way in which a large majority
of people can become purchasers is te
first be suppled with work, and given
wage9 something beyond what Is re
(mired for buying feed. He also recalls
I the fact that when in times past certain
men have undertaken te utilize domestic

foreigners theretofore supplying the de
sired products at once dropped down
prices and kept them down until all ef

During 1886, under the spleudid
Americanism (?) of Cleveland and the
exertions of Vilas, ship-building in the
United States fell te 92,453 39 tens-less
than for any whole year since 1832. In
the last fiscal year 294,122 76 tens were
built. And this calendar year, accord
ing te an article in The Xew Yerk Sun,
53,995 18 tens have been built and
launched from Maine shipyards. The
list of vessels composes ships, barken

When your oppeuent, echoing Reger
Q. Mill's nonsense, asserts that our
prosperity was greater In the low Tariff
period before the war than it has ever
been since, de net forget te quote for
his benefit the testimony of Mulhall,
the anions English statistician, who
said: " It would be impossible te find
in history a parallel te the progress of
the United States in the last ten years.
Every day that the sun rises upon the
American people it sees an addition of
two and a half million dollars te the
accumulation of wealth in the Republic,
which is one-third of the daily accumu
lation of all mankind outside of the
United States." It is no new experience,
this futatlen of Free-trade prophesies
which we are new witnessing en every
hand, under the practical operation of
the new Tariff. The early English
Free-trade prophets shot just as wide of
the mark in their predictions. In an
swer t his opponents, who urged that
Free-trade would ruin the British farmer,
Mr. Codden confidently replied that un
der his system England would produce
25,000,000 (quarters of wheat. At the
time it was producing about 15,000,000
quarters. Free-trade came, and new
England produces, instead of Codden's
25,000,000 quarters, only 7,E00,000 quar

Arcudy never arose out of sheer glad
ness of heart and lustlhoed of fancy.
Te the poetic Imagination, says a writer
in Scribner, the dlfllcultles, depravities
and insufficiency of actual life have al
ways been especially manifest ehd op
pressive. Hut the poetic Imagination
nt its best never rests in discontent in
the mere apprehension and recital of
woes. It is creative and seeks a remo reme
dy, or at least a refuge. Prem the first
it has found some approach te that
peace and sincerity which it cannot de
without but which actual life seems te
deny, everywhere In nature. Thus the
poet's favorite haunt lias always been
the vales and the groves, the flowery
banks and the green fields. Hut nature
wholly unpeepled still failed te satisfy,
and se the poets in their inspirations
after earthly perfection fell te coloniz
ing their placid retreuts with the chil
dren of their fancy. Thus came Arcady
the land of fantastic shepherds and
shepherdesses, where everybody was
honest and simple, where the tending
of sheep was but a pastime, and the
chanting of madrigals the chief pursuit

One of the most famous and fatal poi
sons used in Japan and Java is ob
tained from the bamboo. The young
sheets of the cane when they first push
through the ground are covered with
fine, brownish hairs, which, under the
microscope, appear te be boyenet-llko
spikes of crystals of silcx, infinitely
sharp and hollow. Small quantities of
these hairs administered dally In the
feed bring en ulceration of the whole
alimentary canal, stimulating malig
nant dysentery. The action must be of
n meclianical rather than chemical na
ture, just as the spores of the common
puff ball act upon the eyes. The bam
boo crystal is greatly dreaded by all
European residents of Java. A Dutch
efilcial report says that scores of deaths
among European planters are due te the
bamboo hairs and te the jealousy of
native women, who whenever they
take a fancy te a white man will cither
have him or poison him en bamboo
hairs if it takes months te accomplish
the job. The Infinitesimal hollow
through these hairy crystals Is the most
rcmarlcable thing in connection with
them, they being the only known hol
