The Hen. Carl Schcrz has written a
nine column letter giving his reasons
for supporting Cleveland as against
Harrison. That is rather mere space
than Mr. Schurz occupied in his letter
te Abraham Lincoln telling the latter
that his conduct of the war was a fail

have begun te roll Inte the National
Democratic headquarters, we may ex

amount from Hen. Grever Clevkland.
That was the size of his little token of

Democratic Laber Commissioner
Peele of Indiana is reported te have
conducted an investigation into the
wages question, and, like Commissioner
Peck of New Yerk, finds that wages
'have advanced under the new Tariff.

rabid Free-traders te " expose" Commis

a liar also by these clever investigators.
. The Democratic platform declares a
Protective Tariff unconstitutional, and
pledges the party te Inaugurate a Tariff
for revenue only.
A Tariff for revenue only Is what
England has. Let us examine It and
see hew it compares with our own Mc
Kinley law, and if possible discover
wherein It Is preferable te our present
arrangement. Then we can Intelligi
bly decide whether we want te change,
England levies a duty en cocoa, that
delicious, wholesome breakfast beverage,
of 2 cents a pound. Being a revenue
duty, it is, of course, added te the price.

or ground, 4 cents n pound. We get
Tea pays 8 cents a pound into the
Imperial Treasury. It comes te the
American tea tables free.
Here are three articles of uuiversal
consumption. A tax en them is paid
mainly by the peer.
An unskilled laborer who can earn
no tnore than $1 50, and is obliged te
support his family out of that, drinks
ns much tea or coffee, perhaps, as nuy
ene of the Vanderbilts.
He, therefore, pays as much or mere
of the revenue Tariff tax.
Under our Protective system the
wealthy pay the Impert duties.
As a matter of fact, the laborer, the
mechanic and the farmer can get along,
and de get along for the most part,
without a single imported artlcle which
pays duty. These they must have are
They buy home-made beets and shoes,
heme-made clothing, home-made uten
sils. Products of the labor of their own
fellew-dtlzens are geed enough for
them, and by buying them they escape
paying a cent of Tariff tax.
But the wealthy, the fashionable, the
Auglemaniacs, who turn up their noses
at American products and dote en
French silks, German underwear and
English worsted these are the ones,
and net the peer, who mainly pay the
expenses of Government.
The question between a Tariff for
revenue only and a Tariff for Protection
is, therefore, a question as te whether
the rich or the peer should pay the
Tariff. Which shall it be, American

IIemkstkai), Pa,, Sept. 23. Chairman
II. C Frlck, accompanied by a colored
messenger, paid an unexpected visit te
the Homestead mills Thursday. They
left the train nt Minhall station and at
once went te the mill office.. After a
brief Interview with Superintendent
Petter the party started en a tour of
inspection of the works. This is Mr.
Prick's second visit since the lockout

His presence is occasioned by the seri
ous break-down In the 110-Inch mill de
partment. At neon the party was still
in the mill, and engaged in u careful ex
amination of the disabled machinery.
Mr. Prick's appcarance en the strcet

strikers, who paid him but little atten

fitter, who came te the works among
the first arrivals of non-union men from
Philadelphia, died in the Mill hospital
Wednesday night with typhoid fever.
There are new about 30 cases of this
disease in the mill and borough, occa
sioned, it Is thought, from defective
sewerage and bed drinking water.
News of the wholesale finding of in
dictments by the grand jury caused con
siderable consternation among the
strikers who had hoped that ranny of
the charges would be ignored. Deser
tions from the works continue until
new it Is stated en very geed authority,

Action Will He Taken at Uuce

New Oiiluanb, Sept U3. The biggest
fight ever made here against the gam
blers began Thursday. The state law
prohibits gambling, but it has net been
unforced for years, and in the face of
the law Mayers Shakespeare and Gull
lotto licensed the gambling saloons, the
latter paying money te the city authori
ties for support of the alms-house;
During the lest few weeks there have
been several scandals connected with
the gambling houses, several ugly
rows occurring in them, and a case
of sharpers beating the gamblers out
of some 810,000 with leaded dice. The
gamblers foolishly squealed ever their
less, thus calling attention te the pub
licity with which they were carrying
en their business in defiance of the
law. Thursday Judge Fergusen, of the
criminal district court ordered the
graud jury te make special investiga
tion of the gambling houses. He call
ed attention te the law, and pointed
out where a number of fare and ether
houses were carried en in defiance of
it, naming the streets and buildings in
which the business is conducted. He or
dered the grand jury te at enee take ac
tion in the matter, net only against
the gamblers, but ngajnst the mem
bers of the police force" who, knowing
this violation of the law te be going en
in their precincts, failed te report it
Judge Fergusen found tle grand jury
in full sympathy with him In this raid
en the gamblers. It summoned the
necessary witnesses at once and called
upon Chief of Police Caster te close all
gambling institutions iu the city, arrest
all persons found therein, seize all
gambling paraphernalia and bring it te
the police station, and te report from day
te day what progress he had made in
the matter of closing the gambling
houses. The move is beun in earnest
for Judge Fergusen is strongly pledged
te break up gambling, and has begun a
crusade which Imj and the grand jury
will keep up te the end, and if the po
lice de net act they are likely te get
into troble. The gambling saloons
have always been open In New Orleans,
except for a week once, and have been
cither licensed by the state or the city,
or tolerated bj the city.
