means tho destruction of tho protective tariff
systom and tho placing of American manu

of tho whole world, irrespective of the cost of
production or standard of living.
Tho only way that tho American business
man, tho American farmer and the American
wage-earner can piotect his income is to not
split tho Republican party, which has main
tained tho .protective tariff, for tho only way
to defeat Wilson and tho Democracy is to
maintain tho Republican party in power.
At no time since twenty years ago, when
tho nation elected a Democratic president and
passed tho Wilson tariff bill, which closed the
factories and opened the souphouscs, has tho
national prosperity been in so great a danger.

WILSON FOOLING THE FARMER.
The farmer cannot lie fooled. Ho knows
what a very small fraction of oui agricultural
protjricts sells abroad. He knows that the
brilk of out agricultural products is sold at
home. lie knows that if American
earners are prosperous there are good
foi farm pioducts; that if American
earners arc not piosperous there are poor prices
for farm products. lie knows that American
wage-cai tiers can be prospetous only by-our
continuing to maintain American industries
employing them against tho competition of
cheap foreign industries.
Mr. Wilson on the stump tells tho farmer
ho could get $30 a year oil' the cost of his im
plements. Mr. Wilson naturally docs not
liko to tell the farmer that the price of his
butter is too high, the pi ice of his poultry too
high , the pi ice of his eggs too high, tho price
of his grain too high, the price of his mutton
too high, the price of hid vegetables too high,
and so on. So he goes in for tho piice of the
farmer's implements $30 a year. Tho
farmer will toll Mr. Wilson at tho polls that
he doesn't care to save $.'!() a year on imple
ments at the cost of fifty cents a bushel, say,
on a thousand bushels of wheat a year.

WANAMAKER'S EPIGRAM'S ON THE TARIFF.
At Philadelphia Hon. John Wanamaker in
an interview with a Union Associated Press
"The tearing down of tho constitution and
tho tariff is like allowing a horde of enemies
under tho spell of a reckless leader to rip oil"
tho armor plato on our paval vessels.
"Nothing under heaven can stop the havoc
of desperate fighters but a continent wide rally
of the Republican party.
'Taft and tho top wave of prosperity, or
destruction to industries," or "the whitligig
administration of an unbalanced President.
"No now government ought to be permitted
to check existing prosperity.
"Tho pleading of millions of American citi
zens from all over tho land for work failed to
stay tho destroying hand of Clevolatul and his
free trade Congress.
"An act (tho Vtls)u tariff) that closed
American workshops, that reduced American
wages and degraded American manhood to
want, misery and starvation.
"Do American farmers, American working
men, American manufacturers, American mer
chants, desire a return to tho Cleveland condi
tion? If so, the way is opoti by the election
of a free trade President and a free trade Con
gress. "I boliovo the Republican party can and
will rightly revise tho'tariff,"
