'We oppose both parties on the Tnrift',"
snid Col. Itoosevolt in Minnesota recently
"Tho llopublioans want a Tariff for privilege,
aucl the Democrats a' Tariff for destruction.
AVe favor a Tariff commission; not a little
dinky board. Our proposal' is a Tariff for
Ihbor." The present prospect is that the
"Tariff for destruction," has the inside track.
SENATOR FORAKER'S WISE WORDS
"It is the duty of evory loyal, self-respect--
ing colored man' in the nation to rally to the
. apppprt of tho Republican party and vote its
ticket, from President Tafu at the head of it,
'r down to the last man on the county ticket."
Former Senator Foraker in Letter to Col
ored Baptist Ministeiial Association.
The colored ministers of the Baptist denomi
' nation adopted resolutions to ask Senator Fora
ker for advice as to what the attitude of the
negro Voter should be at this time and in this
campaigu, and Mr. Foraker has promptly an
swered. The above quotation is the closiug
sentence of his letter, sent to the ministers,
and is typical of the whole. One of the ques
tions was as to Theodore Koosevelt's purpose
.in his declaration at the time of his nomina
tion by tho Progressive convention regarding
a "white man's party" in the South. Mr.
Foraker says of that: "lu my opinion it
means to make of tue Progressive party in
the South a white man's party for the purpose
of popularizing the party with white people,
A especially tho white Democrats of the South
and thus make it possible to break up the
solid support of the Democratic party by the
"While the Republican party may have fal
len short of what it slunild have done in this
or that or the other instance, it remains that
it is the only political organization to which
the negro can look with hope for tho future.
In othor words, it is as true now as when first
Btated, that for the negro 'the Republican
party is tho ship; all olso is tho Bea.'
A good deal has been said recently about
ho battle of Armageddon. In view of this
proposition, if I were a colored man, I would
foant to hear less about Armageddon and, more
ab, out Apomattox.
Mr. Foraker says alBO that ho regards tho
coming election as one of tho most important
over held in this country. lie cites the thteat
to destroy the protective policy, tho attacks on
the Federal constitution and our form of gov
ornmont, tho attempts to tako from the courts
the power that safeguards personal liberty, and
other similiar issues. For many ycais former
Senator Foraker has boon regarded by many
of the leading colored men of tbo county as a
Bjeadfftst friend of their race. r
"Hello, CoIodcII How did you lrnvo things at Wash
ington?" "Bully in good shape; left Toft sitting on the lid."
Tho people believed that then; and three year's service
has confirmed that belief.
Ollio James in his speech at the Ratification
Meeting in Lexington, predicted that Ken
tucky would roll up a plurality of lf0,000 for
Woodrow Wilson tho coming November.

Wage earners have begun the building of
homes since Freo-Tiadc was banished in 1897.
They havo paid for them in most instances
and arc paying ou them now in others through
tho medium of building loan?, all made pos
sible by the excess compensation insured by a
rigid adherence to our national policy of Protection.
A pair of shoos cost tho wearer from $2 to
$.'5.f0 when there was a "Tariff for revenue
only," but tho wage earnei had not the price
unless he deprived himselfjof other necessarios.
Shoes cost between $.'i and $5 now, but the
wage earner has the money because under our
schemo"of Protection he can earn from $5 to
$10 more a week than in 1S92.

THE SILENT MILLIONS.
The silent millions havo taken no part in
the piimaries of either party. A larger per
centage of Republicans have participated in
primaries this year than in the Democratic
ranks. Roughly speaking, at least two-thirds
of the voters havo abstained from expressing
a primary choice.
Those active in party management and in
the struggle for party control may imagine
that they are the party, but the millions silent
will decide the issue in november. Not in the
crowds before tho talented speakers; not in tho
deliberations of the party leaders, are the roal
issues threshed out. The real issues aie threshed
out in farm-houses, in city homes, when the
man of the house and tho good wife talk over

What wouldn't yon give to be able to have the world's greatest singers
and musicians to sing and piny for you whenever you wanted to hear them!
You can hear them whenever and as often as you wish with a Victrola in your
home; and you can get one of these wonderful instruments from
$15 to $200.

Being conservative in politics never keops a
man from being screamingly insurgent in the
matter of ties and socks.
A really clever wotnau never makes tho
mistake of assuming that only a man can com
prehend her cleverues8s
You may cure the vices of a bad woman,
conquer the shortcomings of tho 'indifferent
woman, but nothing will avail in tho faco of a
good woman's prejudices.
Tho woman who "dares to bo different" is
talked about, tho man who plays the game is
merely tolerantly laughed at but at best tho
woman wouldn't change places with him.
