Here i- an exact reproduction of the
way the Bath County World puts it:
Tilit? is a Democratic year.
If you can't "see it" you ought te be
able te smell it after analyzing the
TUE editor of The Xcw Era at Hop Hep
kins', ille gets a salary of $3,420 a year,
the foreman 31,S0O a year and the lowest
paid chap in the efllce is the Devil who gets
:-lS0. And yet this bleated crossroads
editor is unhappy and claims that these
are "starvation wages" for the eight
hours work that is required out of
The attention of our scrupulously
conscientious and lamblike contem
porary down the street is called te the
fact that Gbever Cleveland's personal
organ, The New Yerk Evening Pest, is
a " rat" concern that will have nothing
te de with organized labor. The officers
of the paper recently gave a committee
of printers a chilly reception and dis
missed them with the injunction te
mind their own business. The fact is
. there are far mero " rat" newspapers of
the Democratic persuasion than there are
among the Republicans. It is about
time te step the silly twaddle alwut
"hat" and "rat."
Representative Oatks of Alabama
is a typical Free-trade Southern Demo
crat, but gentlemen of his impulsive
times tell truths
Homestead and that their mere
Its Homesteads, politic fellow parti
sans would conceal
for fear of helping
the enemy. Congressman Oates freely
admits that he never saw such high
wages paid anywhere for physical labor
as are paid at the Homestead mills.
Here is his testimeny:
The lenders of the workmen are men
of intelligence and capacity, and take the
workmen as a body, they are the best set
of workingmen I have ever come across.
The contention is net one between ignor
ance and power. It is a conflict of strong
men, the workmen being keen, intelligent
and always wide awake. The man who
gees te Homestead with an Idea that he
Is going te llnd a let of ragged half starved
and ignorant strikers will have a great
surprise before him. It is a revelation in
the way of a community of werkingmen.
They are men of thought and action nnd
of intlependcncc. They have their homes,
and the skilled workmen earn from f 05 te
275 per month. The laborers cot from
1 te $1 50 per day. It is net a poverty
stricken community by any mcaus.
Hew did Mr. Oates come te this con
clusion? By personal inspection of
Homestead and its homesteads. If ether
' Democratic politicians were te investi
gate American industrial communities
.mere, and cultivate honesty enough net
te make sweeping assertions about them
till they had Btudied at first hand, mere
set Hum would open their eyes and fewer
et item wehW efH their mouths.
Anether two days have elapsed with
out the Editor receiving attention from
any of Mnysvllle's annrchlstic curs.
Have they exhausted their venom?
Since the Democratic Congressional
Cenunitteee found out, from personal
investigation, what princely wages were
being paid the workmen at Homestead,
there has been a great fnlling off in the
cry of "starvation wages." Only liars
nnd feels keep it tip.
Mh. Vice-Censul Waruurten, re
porting te his Government ou agricultu
ral machinery in France, has this te
say: "Six reaping and binding ma
chines were sold, all of American make.
These are equal te English, but cost less,
nnd it seems odd that the United States,
where the Protective duties are higher
than in any ether manufacturing country
(a state of tilings which we are told
should hiake the cost of production
greater,) is able te turn out these ma
chines as geed as English, send them
3,000 miles and sell them cheaper than
we can." There is nothing odd about
it except te a fossilized Cebdenite who
always expects industrial conditions te
square with certain fast anil hard
abstract theories, new regarded as
stupidly absurdity every civilized Natien
under the sun except England, nnd even
she is rapidly coming te her senses
A REI'ORT from Stahl und Eisen
gives the following estimates of the
iron and steel production of the world
in recent years:
The proportion of each country's pro
duction in the total for lS'JO is brought
out in the following table:
United States ... . 0,318.000
Great Britnin 9,030,000
Austria Hungary 910,000
Belgium (1839) S32.000
Sweden (1SS9) 421.000
Norway. Japan, Switz
erland and Australia
Here is an index of our momentous
importance as an industrial land.
With only one twenty-second part of the
population of the world, we make and
consume one-third of its iron and teel.
Is any one silly enough te suppose we
should be occupying that proud position
if we had had Free-trade for the last

AVtc Yerk lltcerder In his speech of
acceptance at the Madisen Square Gar
den, Mr. Cleveland undertook te rewiitc
the modern history of the United State0.
"Ours is net," said he, "a distinctive
Then will you be geed enough te tell
us who undertook te destroy the Union a
generation age? Was it net the South
ern wing of the Democracy, aided by
their copperhead allies in the North and
the Knights of the Gelden, Circle in the
West, te which your associate en the
ticket is said te have belonged? Who
strove te break down the credit of the
Government when it was straining every
nerve te support the armies in the Held?
Who strove te obtain the lecogniiien of
the belligerency of the Seuth by Eng
land and Fiance? Who destroyed Amer
ican commerce en the erean? Who
sought te burn the cities of the Neith?
And was it net Mayer Fernande Weed
who advocated the secession of New
Yerk from the state nnd the establish
ment of a fiee city like Hamburg? Net
a party of destruction! Ask any Ameri
can schoolboy 1 1 years old about it.
It was the party of destruction in the
peht, and it is the party of destruction to
day. Its point of attack new is the over over
theow of the splendid economic and In
dustrial system which has put the United
States in the van of the world's progress.
Yeu were its leader four years age en
that platform of ruin, and you were
beaten. Te day you nre again Its leader,
with the same banner of destruction in
your hand History will repeat itself

the hedsc, nnd the day that Mr. Cobb
made his speech en the Noycs Neycs Noycs
Reckwell contested election. he
(Patterhen) had listened te him
throughout his urgument, which
was a very long nnd exhaustive
one. He had seen Cobb drink from a
cup; but as te Its containing whisky, he
could net stnte. As te Cobb's being
drunk, he wished the public te knew
tfiat it was net true. V itness sat with

house the day that Judge Cobb spoke.
Beatijcr asked hjm if he had tjver seen
any" member of the house drunk en the
fleer of the house. Witness replied that
he had never seen such a thing and was
of the opinion that such a thing had
never taken place upon the fleer.
Mr. Simpsen objected te the ques
tion. Mr. Boatner told him that he could
appeal te the cemmitter.
Mr. Simpsen I de net wish te appeal
te the committee.
Mr. Watsen made a statement te the
effect that he was satisfied with the in
vestigation, ns It had proved that his
chargvs were true, and that he did net
intend te make any charges against the
house, but only ngairlst Individuals.
Simpsen moved that the questions
put te Mr. Bynum, respecting the gen

Ottawa, Oat, Aug. 2. There is con cen

Catholics ever the judgement en the

these at Santes 3,099,415 bags. The
Rie and Santes crops then amounted te

The crops this year are estimated at

prebable that the coffee will net all be
