The pestiferous Knlee of Tenne-se,

gentleman against the administration
of the pension office by General
Green B. Raum. Yet the Democratic
Heuse, for very shame, declined te take
any action winterer en Enloe's report
of his bulldozing investigation, knowing
that the persons most compromised by
that report were Democratic Congress
men. IN 1890 our imports of barley were
ll,332,elu bushels. In 1S91 imports fell
te 5,078,733 bushels, and they would hare
been less but for the great rush of bar
ley from Canada in September before the
new Tariff passed. But the fiscal year
ending June 30th, 1802, was wholly un
der the McKluley law, and what was the
result? Simply that we imported only
3,140,337 bushels, a decrease of 8,180,208
bushels, which represents the increased
market of home-grown barley. Is this
a benefit or an injury te American farm
ers? Here's a dainty morsel for the gentle
stimulation of the Grever Cleveland
Party Pilets: " Of course, Mr. Cleve
land might be elected President, for al
though the age of miracle seems te have
passed, anything is possible with Ged.
But according te the standards by which
reasonable men usually try such ques
tions, it will require little less than a
miracle te elect him." It is hardly
necessary te remind that these words
appeared from the fearless, ante-convention
Watterson; new se radiantly
astride his Free-trade hobby.
The Republican party is the party of
human progress. It beasts of no
traditions. It has no followers, for all
are leaders. It has given the world
the best Government ever administered
among men. It has exalted Maber,
dignified the home and made the waste
places te produce plenty. In the track
of its marches are seen a million
factories, surrounded by happy and
prosperous agricultural cemmuaities.
It Is the party of honest money and fair
equivalents. It permits its citizens te
Jbe free and contends for equal advan
tages before the law of all men. It
declares te jhe children of the rich and
t!ie children of thefpoer that the child

"Mr. Si'EAKhii, where was I atV" Is a
question that the entire Democratic
majority in the recent Congress might
ask. Neither the Speaker nor any ene
else could answer the question.

Southern paper forget itself se far as te
say that the Carnegie strike was the
"greatest been that could have been

however, we have heard of no Pro

account of the falsehoods and mis
representations of the demagogue "re

refreshing, are this convert's reasons for
becoming a Free-trader that it is worth

stated in an interview:

Protection. He claimed that it cost him
$2,500 te obtain his college education,
and that there was net one-half of his
graduating class that could earn the half
of f3 rfer day. His argument was that,
as it wus diillcult for any college bred
man te earn ever ?1 per (fay, uny system
that enabled an uneducated In borer te
earn double that was vicious, und, there

We mistake much If the Free-traders,
while of course, secretly agreeing with
every word here spoken, will raise a
great shout of triumph ever this lonely
individual whom the Homestead strike
has made full fledged Cebdenite. In
fact, we think they will rather try te
prevent his saying anything at all, for
fear that the result will only be in
creased majorities for the Protection
cause. As the Homestead strike was
going te be a clincher ngalnst the
Tariff, however, it la significant that
the only man attracted te the Free
trade camp is ene who revolts at the
high wages paid protected workers, and
thinks that a safe remedy for this
