The President is preparing to push his
policies the same as if he had not been defeat

message to Congress and will, as heretofore,
follow it with several supplementary ones.

certain tariff schedules, but will firmly oppose
reductions that would tend to cripplo any in

The draining of this country of niouey,
which is tho case under low tarifl laws, is what
makes it poor and weak. Tho gold and silver
of a nation is its lifeblood. Tako it away by
the million to pay for goods- manufactured
abroad and you sap our nation's strength, just
as you sap an individual's strougth if you tap
an artery. Under a low Democratic tariff we
send away our money our blood. Under a
a Republican protective tariff we are getting
new blood all the time, because, as a rule, the
balance of trade is in our favor. Read the
messages ol our Presidents back in tho fifties
aud you will see that they tellJhow, under tho
low Walker tarifl, the millions of gold miued
in California went into one ceaseless current
abroad to pay for manufactured goods. We
are now keeping that gold, tho nation's life
blood, at home where it bolongs.

TODAYS BEST POLITICAL JOKE.
The Times desires to present, as America's
representative to tho Court of St. James, tho
name of that representative American, Wil
liam Jennings Bryan. He is in many ways our
foremost citizen, so regarded abroad and so es
teemed at home. He possesses in singular
conjunction all tho qualities, aud we can think
of not a single drawback. His urbanity, his
suavity, his charm of manner, of temper and
ot speech arc alike unapproached and unap
proachable; his knowledge of mon, of his own
land and his own people is surely ontensivo
and peculiar; a scholar who is not bookish, a
lawyer who does not talk cases, a statesman
who does not hold himself aloof, here is a big
man of big caliber, filling by his own work a
big place in the world. Louisville Times.
