J. 9. CLAHKSON, President.
A. B. HUMPHREY, Secretary.
In every Presidential campaign, ami
mere especially in every campaign
which, like these of lbSS and 1S92, is
fought out by argu
Whit is the
voters of loose
ment rather than
carried through en
great vaes of en
thusiasm, there is a
large number of
who assert that practically there is no
real difference between tlie two great
parties, says The New Yerk Prcs. The
war Is ever they say; specie payments
have been resumed; the "bloody chasm"
has been Ailed up, and really the only
question at issue is that between the
"ins" and the "outs." In ether words,
te them the only issue that presents it
self is, "Who shall have the offices for
the next four years?"
Fer the beneAt of such persons and
of these te whom their remarks te this
effect may be addressed we beg leave te
submit a few suggestions.
A perusal of the platforms of the
two parties shows some points of differ
ence between them at Arst glance. The
Republican platform declares that the
Protective system has been a blessing
te the country and should be main
tained; the Democratic platform declares
that all Protective Tariff duties are un
constitutional, and pledges the party te
the immediate and unconditional repeal
, of such duties. Here indeed is a radi
cal difference between the two great
parties, and one that affects every work
shop and every home in the country.
Every man who believes that the Tariff
is a curse, that it enhances the price of
living without raising wages, and that,
the country would be mere prosperous
under a Tariff for retenue only, should
yete the Democratic ticket. On the
ether hand, every man who believes
that Protection U a geed thing for
American Industries and American
werklngmen, that it festers home pro
duction, keeps up wages and enables
Americans te live better and te develop
their own industries instead of depend
ing upon foreign supplies should vote
the Republican ticket.
Every workingman who sees that an
abolition of Protective duties would
compel his employers te lower wages te
the British stundard about one-half of
what they new are or else close up his
works entirely; every farmer who Ands
in the factories and workshops his best
, home market, and whom the Tariff en
wool, or barley, or eggs, or potatoes,
protects from the ruinous competition
of his Canadian rival; every salaried
man who does net wish his standard of
waged and of living te be brought down
te that of the British salaried man in a
similar position should vote the Repub

National banklne svstem rest en a sta-
bio foundation, while the Republican
party upholds our system of national
banks. Every ene therefore who faers
a return te the system of banking that
pre ailed In this country n half et a
century age, when money that was geed
in one state was bad in another, when a
different rate of discount had te be
maintained for the bills of every bank,
and no man could tell whether the
money he was offered was worth Its fuee
alue or netevery man, we say, who
faers a return te this state of affairs
should ete the Democratic ticket. On
the contrary eery man who belleves
that that old system of state banks was
wrong, and destructive of cenAdence In
business, should ote the Republican
Still further, the Republican party,
by Its action in the past an?l its declara
tions in the present, insists that the
proisiens of the Constitution of the
United States, including the Fourteenth
and Fifteenth Amendments, shall be en en
'erced, and that every citizen shall have
the privilege at eery election of cast
ing one ballet and of having that ballet
count Hi as cast. The Democratic party,
ou the ether hand, asserts that this Re
publican demand is a monstrous wrong,
which would lead, in certain parts of
the country, te the domination of the
icnerant and depraml classes of the
community, and declares that, se far as
the Seuth is concerned, the fourteenth
and Fifteenth Amendments te the Cen
stitutien are and shall remain Inopera
tive. The two positions are as far apart
as the poles. They are Irreconcilable.
Voters must cheese whether they will
occupy the one or the ether, according
te their iews of right and justice.
Ne man who believes that ballet boxes
should net be stuffed, that voters should
net be counted falsely.that citizens should
net be kept nway from the polls by vio
lence and intimidation, in any part of
the Republic, can consistently and hon
estly ete the Democratic ticket.
Here are three questions, then, net te
mention any ethers, upon which the two
great parties stand in diametrical oppo
sition questions of moral and legal
right, of expediency and policy. Hew
an' ene can sav who examines the mat
ter with any thought or any care that
there is no real difference in principle
and policy between the two parties we
are unable te see.
Still further, aside from these ques
tions, it is te be decided which party,
upon the whole, is the better adminis
trator of the country's affairs. Which
Congress, the Fifty-Arst or the Fifty
second the Republican or the Demo Deme
cratichas proved itself mere eAlcient,
mere patriotic, wiser, mere worthy of
popular indersement? Which adminis
tration, Jlr. Cleveland's or Mr. IIuuu
tON's, has conducted the affairs of the
country better and mere wisely, has up
held mere Armly the dignity and honor
of the Natien abroad, has administered its
internal affairs mere discreetly and pre
All these matters, we submit, are

A Itebbcr In the Carnegie Mill Cnuiei a
Commotion A Deuble-Qulck Charge by
the Sel ill en but no Shots Were Fired.
UeMKSTKAPFn., Aug. 17. A conflict
between the militia and a crowd el
fully 8,000 men, wotnen and children
was narrowly averted In Homestead
Tuesday morning. That there was net
a battle which would certninly have re
sulted In n terrible less of life Is due
solely te the prompt action of the pro
vost marshal, Maj. Crawford, the cool
ness of the men under his command,
the timely nppcarance of several Home Heme
stad policemen and the elllclent werh
of the deputy sheriffs.
At 0 o'clock Constable Cinghcr ar
rested Frank Tracy, a laborer In the
mill, en achat go of larceny preferred
by a fellow non-unionist. Four non
union men were subpamaed as wit
nesses. The alderman declined te held Tracy
and ordered him taken te Pittsburgh
jalL The constable took his prisoner
out the back way.
The four witnesses went out en Eighth
avenue in charge of one or two deputy
sheriiTs, and were at once surrounded by
a howling mob. The non-unionists
walked along, maintaining silence.
Cries of "Lvnch the scabs!" "Kill the
black sheep!" "Take them te the river!"
A hundred yards up the street a dewn
strikers ran te the front, picked up
stones and hastened toward the four de
fenseless men. A big fellow at the
heat! of the latter realized that things
were growing serious, and said: "Yeu
cowards can go te . We are net going
te run. New de your worst."
This display of nerve caused the mob
te fall back a short distance, where
upon the four empleyes of the Carnegie
Ce. started for the mill again. By thi
time about ten women had joined the
ranks of the strikeis, urging the male
portion of the crowd te make short
work of the "scabs."
Maj. Crawford, learning of the situa
tion, seen had SO men with bayonet
fixed going towards the crowd, which
was new armed with stones and clubs,
closing in upon the non-unionists.
The militia drew up in company front
across the street with guns at half cock
"Seme one sheuted: "Don't let it little
handful of pale-faced boys step us
Let's teach these scabs n lessen."
The soldiers steed their ground with
their fingers en the hammers of their
Iaj Crawford and a deputy sheriff
ordered the crew d te disperse, but the
mob disregarded. Then a signal was
given, and a company from the Six
teenth came down the hill en a double
quick, and was also drawn across the
rTS-'Sheritf Oray with an addlticn.il
force of deputies then arrived.
Turning te Mr. Cray, Maj Crawford,
after striking a striker across the back
with his sword, asked: "De you want
us te disperse this crowd?" ,
"I de." was the reply, whereupon
Maj. Crawford turned te his men and
was about te give the command te
charge, when Policeman Gessuer, with
a squad of eflleers, came up and ordered
the street cleared.
The crowd, with sullen faces and pro
fane remarks, began te full back. Ter
half an hour the uneasy feeling pre
vailed Finally the policemen and dep
uty sheriffs succeeded in restoring or
der, nnd the militia returned te camp,
and the non-union workmen were es
corted te the mill.

The Democrats professed great juhi juhi
latien ever the elections of 18U0 and
claimed that it was a condemnation hy
the people of the McKinley law. Yet
they are trying te obscure the Tariff
issue and te bring forward the purely
local Issues in the states in which they
elected the Congress two years age.
This is a confession of weakness. Le
cal issues can cut no fltrure In a Presi
dential year, nnd the people cannot be
blinded en the Tariff issue.
Wrctkcl by u Terrible Storm 1'utlentn

St. Pktkhsih'ke, Aug. 17. The hor
rors of u frightful storm have been
added te the misery and suffering
caused by the cholera ut Nijni Nov Nev Nov
eorod. The storm was one of the most
frightful that ever visited that region.
It came sweeping ever the town with
a force and fury Unit many buildings
were unable te resist, and they
crumbled in ruins. The cholera hospital
was full of patients, many in n dying
condition. As they heard the rear of
the hurricane some died of fright. The
terrible noise was seen followed
by the storm itself, which crushed
in a large part of the cholera
hospital like an egg-shell, hurl
ing the bds and wooden walls
into a mass of ruin and wreckage.
Frem the debris came the shrieks, and
groans of the victims, a number et
whom expired while tlw work , of
..c ...... t..iL ntnrr fn TWlum lulflfl-
inij-s were also crushed, and theJlW-
tents of the trader wlw had re
mained, notwithstanding the cholera,
were scattered with their eon
tents in all directions. The wretched
people of Novgerod are utterly crushed
by this last visitation and many of the
superstitious declared thntthe Almighty
had determined te destroy the city en
account of the wickedness of the people.
Many lied while the people who remain
can be seen in crowds at the shrines
and in the churches, praying for the
mercy of Heaven.
