SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. fo
The Chicago Inter-Ocean saye, "The he

The Brooklyn Eagle says, "We must it
bury free trade by a vote so big that it
will take the Cobden club a quarter of a on
century to dig it out again." am
The Cleveland Leader thinks that any It
nation on earth having a tariff for rev- ca
enue only would be very hapliy to see cl
something like our surplus in its treas- ca
The New York Sun says, "With every ci
mugwump and traitor opposed to him, as
was the case in 1885, Gov. Ben Hill is a
again leading the democracy to triumph 01
in that battle." fc
The Philadelphia Niorth American n,
commenting on Mr. Mills' designation of
the Indiana democrats as "unsurrendered
battalions," says he probably meant that p
when the Confederate army capitulated
it did not include the White Caps .or the B
Knights of the Golden Circle.
The Courier Journal (Louisville, Ky.) o
says some of the Kentucky girls are so
intensely sensational that a certain Nich
olas county girl recently refused to marry b
a well-to-do suitor from Missouri because d
he is a Republican. The heat of the
campaign has a very peculiar effect upon
these damsels of Old Kentuck. b
The Newark (N. J.) Journal, democrat
ic, confesses that something must be
done, or the democratic jig is up. It de
clares that there is a dangerous amount !
of apathy among the democrats; that no
two of them are working in harmony and
that unless a radical change is made, the
state will be lost.
The Cleveland Leader predicts that|(
congress will go with the presidency this
year; that the election of Harrison will
carry with it enough close districts to 4
give the republicans control of the house
of representatives for the first time since
the congress which was elected with Gar
field and Arthur, eight years ago.
The sentiment of the republican politi
cal press of the entire North, as also that
of many of the leading journals of the
South, is that the Chicago convention se
lected the right man to succeed Grover
Cleveland. The more they see of him
the more they feel, as Dr. Storrs says,
that "precisely such a man should be at
the head of the American nation."
The Cincinnati Commercial Gazette
thinks that protection works better than
free trade in setting a nation out of debt.
Tree trade Great Britian, in 1878, had a
public debt.of $8,875,000,000. It is now
$8,600,000, a decrease in ten years of
1095,000,000. The United States in 1878
had a debt of $2,256,000,000. It is now
$1,154,000.000,a decrease of $1,102,000,000.
The Chicago Inter-Ocean relates that a
straw vote was taken on a late St. Paul
west-bound excursion train, the passen
gers representing almost every northern
state, with the following result: Harrison,
122; Cleveland, 41; Fisk, 10. The cor
respondent adds that the exercise of
woman suffrage on the same train would
have increased the Harrison total by 150
more votes. U
The Madison (Ky.) Courier is informed th
that a reliable gentleman residing at Lo.
cust, Ky., was wearing a Harrison badge. w
The gentleman stated that Blaine, in tr
1884, received but three votes in that pre
cinct, while now there is a Harrison club p
of eighty members out of a voting popu- p
lation of 180. This gentleman in 1884 ,
voted for Cleveland; but, as his badge ki
indicated, will vote for Harrison in
The Springfield (Mass.) Union charges a
that in 1888 Grover Cleveland "flipped j(
out" of office a U. S. district attorney in el
Western Pennsylvania because he made
republican speeches. This year Secre- tl
tary Vilas and Assistant Post Master e
General Stevenson are making speeches l1
for Cleveland, but there is no flipping
out. This shows the progress of civil b
service reform in two years. a
The Minneapolis Tribune says a battle t
for principle is in progress, but the act- e
ual necessities of the hour cannot be
overlooked without inviting evil conse- I
quences. The tariff needs revision, and C
the republican party is the only party B
competent to undertake the difficult task. c
It is now on record as pledged to execute I
a well defined and wise tariff policy, if
again placed in change of the govern- I
The New York Sun calls a halt upon
the western stump speaking carnival by
cabinet officers. Its latest orders are:
"Call in Don Dilkinson too, Brother
Cleveland! He is as bad with his tongue
as Vilas when he gets away from reason
able restraint and off into the frank and
boundless West. We are glad to see the
cabinet on the stump. It is a manly as
sertion of an inalienable right of every
American citizen, even if he be an office
holder. But when the cabinet gets on
the stump at the West, it ought not to
talk in such a way to hurt the ticket at
the East. Better stay in Washington!'
The Philadelphia Times is of the opin
ion that it may now be accepted as set
tled that congress will guggle along in
one way or the other to present any re
sponsible action on the tariff issues until
after election; that then, if Cleveland
shall be elected the Mills bill or some
bill closely akin to it, will be passed, and
if Harrison shall be elected, "our present
high war taxes on the necessaries of
life and of business will be reduced by n
proAigate appropriations and by high a
premiums to bond holders." But hold! ti
Mr. Times. Under the "present high
war taxes" you prate about, the Ameri- d
can workman ca can buy his suit of woolen tl
clothes as cheap in this country as in b
Canada or Great Britain; and ceutainly tl
his "bull beef" and plum. pudding don't tl
cost him any more here than across the b
water. The intelligent workman asks p
nothing better than this. As to the "pro- t.
flegate appropriations" the Times alludes a
to, it must have reference to the improve- s
ment of the rivers, harbors and water. a
ways of our country, one of the cardinal
doctrines of the republican party from its
foundation up to the present time. The
high premiums to bond holders might
° have been unheard of, had Mr. Cleveland
used the surplus in the treasury, which
Shas so disturbed his virtuous slumbers,
to reduce the public debt, as he was by
St law fully authorized to do.
t The New York Sun is deeply exercised
a over the widening gulf between the Hill
and Cleveland wings of the democracy.
y It says that Mr. Cleveland,, being the
r- candidate of the party nominated by ac
e clamation at St. Louis, and Mr. Hill the
e- candidate of the party nominated by ac
clamatlon at Bufllalo, there can be no dis
y crimination by democrats between them,
u which does not break the bonds of party
Is and defeat all the purposes of the party
h organization. Mr. Dana says, "it is time
for Mr. Cleveland to say the word that is
a necessary to avert the destruction which
his pretended friends in this state are
d planning for the party which made him
t president, and is now supporting him for
a second election." It is questionable
whether the wise counsels of the distin
guished journalist will be heeded by the
desperate land-lubbers now at the helm
of the ship of state; and it is yet more
m questionable whether any tactics they
- might adoit will save the party in Novem
ber from the over-whelming defeat they
1e The New York Tribune states that by
far the greater part of the voters of Irish
birth are wage-earners, and have a di
rect personal interest in the question

le- strange if, with the history of their own
at land to enlighten them, they are more
no zealous than many Americans in resent

'ee as ignorance of the history or the coun

TWENTY REASONS WHY. he
Here are twenty reasons why the Unit- Ai
ed States should continue the protective an
1. Because the most patriotic Ameri- C4
cans have favored it. Washington, Jef- a
ferson, Hamilton, Jackson, Madison,Mon- th
roe, the two Adams and Lincoln were ns
2. Because free trade and secession all
are alike the products of sectional jeal- th
ousy. The first serious attempt to de- W
stroy the Union was promoted by free a5
traders, and in 1861 every secessionist ar
was a free trader. cr
8. Because the policy of free trade is TI
of English origin, and was confessedly
proposed to benefit the people of Great Ci
4. Because there is a necessary com
mercial antagonism between the United 3
States and Great Britain. It has always B
existed, and will probably continue until 3
Great Britain surrenders her supremacy. n
Under the circumstances we, being her a
chief antagonist, would be fools to ac
cept her suggestions. b
5. Because under her system the
United States has reached the position of C
the wealthiest nation on the globe. o
6. Because by the aid of protection
we have created a manufacturing indus
n try which has no rival in magnitude.
7. Because by greatly stimulating
b production and mechanical ingenuity, A
protection has put within the reach of
wage-earners comforts undreamed of by -
e kings a couple of centuries ago.
n 8. Because it has created an enormous
home market for the farmer, without
%a which we would always have been sub
d jected to the vicissitudes of a varying for
s eign demand.
ie 9. Because by bringing the shop and
- the farm close together, it has greatly
,r enhanced the value of all agricultural
8 lands in the United States.
ig 10. Because it has enabled us in a
'l brief period to pay off the major part of
an immense national debt, incurred in
le the suppression of a war waged for slav
t- ery and free trade.
be 11. Because it has always kept the
e- United States treasury in a solvent con- I
ad dition; while free trade has always re
ty sulted in the destruction of the national
k. credit--and a resort to loans in times of
its profound peace.
if 12. Because it helps the workingman
g. to secure a fair compensation for his ser
vices, by shielding him from the fierce
competition of the pauper labor of
by 13. Because it is a fair system of taxa.
e: tion, which compel the foreigner to pay
ier for the privilege of entering our markets,
;ue thus relieving the home producer of a
on- portion of his burden.
md 14. Because it is a rational system, in
the culcating the idea that it is wise for a na
as- tion to be self-sustaining.
ry 15. Because it has stimulated national
Ice- pride by developing our resources on a
on grand scale.
t 16, Because the material prosperity it
at has brought about has compelled the for
eigner to recognize this country as a
pin- great one.
set- 17. Because it elevates to the first
in place the producer, considering his in
re- terests as of more importance than those
ntll of the mere consumer, who is too often
and of the class that toils not nor spins,.
)me 18. Because it promotes good work
and manship, the live-and-let-live principle
sent back of it making it unnecessary to re

y nasty method of produotion, which al.
Sways characterizes the work of free

t- demns as an economic error the theory
n that it is wise to put men on the level of
n beasts in order to secure cheapness for
y the consumer. Excessive competition,
I the invariable outcome of free trade, is
Le bound to produce a result by calling into
ce play the stern maxim of the survival of

,s omics the worker who will permit him
