We have been fuming and fuss

here about politics fur u right

about it entirely mid what mnk = s
us so gol darned mad about it is
tho very little attention paid to
what wo say by them big follows
up at Washington like Cleveland
Mills Voorheese and sich liko It
is rather unconragiug to an inspir
ed aspiring lad We are going to
keep on though because wo be
lieve they feel it n hoap morn

if ihoy dont nn y up all right pur

tion and send it in one of their
government penalty unvelopos so
that we wont be out 2 more cents
In this government the people
have got a right to be heard and
wovo got something to say and
we aro going to say it too
Farming isone of the prime or
chief industries of our nation yet
from some cause the industry is
not an encouraging position in life
and from some other cause it is
not a paying industry It is indeed
a seldom thing that we ever hear
of a rich mnu who has mado his
money by farming but it is ipiito
common to hear of mortgaged
farms and mortgaged crops Not
only is it au unprofitable business
but in tho oyos of many it is not
even legnrded as an elevated or
refined or intelligent position The
good old steady farmers who aro
the back bono and sinews of a
country are called ignoramuses
cranks and hayseeds and if they
ask for legislation favorable to
their business thoy are called so
cialists comunists tc This is all
wrong and the wholo system needs
renovating Tho farmers have a
right to ask for legislation favor
able to their calling as much so
as manufacturers bankers miners
bondholders or nny other class of
men Tho farming industry is in
deed the basis of national pros
perity It should therefore be
duly encouraged and raised to a
reasonably paying basis Some
how the idea creeps into our mind
that for these innny years there
has boon a constant trend of legis
lation unfavorable to the farming
industry It seems that a nation
like ours should protect and en
courage the farming industry as
any other There should be such
safeguards of legislation thrown
around the industry as will make
it an acceptable and profitable bus
iness

Which is of more importance to
our nntion the producing of raw
material or tho manufacturing in
dustry In other nords in which
industry are more peopio engaged
or upon which industry do the
more peopio depend There is
but ouo answer Then if it bo
necessary that either industry is
to bo maintained at tho cost of tho
other in thonameof commousense
which one should it bo But in
our opinion they can both be main
tained on reasonable terms If
they cannot in tuo name of jus
tice why should the great and
bouudloss production of all raw
materials be cramped and fettered
and injured in order that a fow
pot manufacturers may flourish

Congressman Paschal Bays that
the wool pioducers will bo bene
fitted by putting wool on the free
list as it will increase the price of

raw material is necessary in order
that American manufactures can
buy their raw material as CHEAP
as foreign competitors What
logic is applicable in order to
effect a lecouciliation

THE MESSAGE
I The late message iudeed falls
shortof public expectation The
I three vital issues at present viz
Finance Hawaii and Tariff reform
re dismissed in a very unsatisfac
tory manner However the main
end of the message is good and
ears no stamp of assumed dicta
torial power The Pi evident holds
p his idea of sound curreucv
d says
fIn pursuit of this object we
gould resolutely turn away from
qUurlng and temporary expedition
determined to be content with
nothing less than a lasting and
csmprehensivo financial plan
Inch evidently means a single
gold utandnrd This is not in ic
cordanfte with the financial idea or
the democratic platform On this
issue however we are willing to
concede tbepossiblity of his be
ing right though it does not cou
form to our idea of the money of
our constitution nor of the money
spoken of in our platform But
his idea of tariff rofoi m we can
not endorse nor do we balive it
democratic nor do we believe it
Just He says
Not less closely lelatod to oni
peoples prosperity aid well being
is the removal of restrictions upon
the importation of the raw mate
rials necessary to our manufactur
ers The world should be open to
onr National ingenuity and enter
prise This cannot be while Fed
oral legislation through the impo
sition of high tariffs forbids to
American manufactDiers as cheap
materials as those used by thier
competitors
Why this discrimination in fa
vor of manufacturers ns against
our producers The manufactur
ers must be allowed to buy their
raw material at free list prices
but must aso kao the benefit of
from 30 to 70 per cent ad valo
rem protection This is an uu
just discrimination closely border
ing on class legislation which is
wholly foreign to our idea of de
mocracy The great producing
portions of our country tho great
West and the solid South the pro
decors of all raw material must
meet foreign competition but our
pet manufacturers must flourish if
the rest of the country goes to the
devil Wo had foudled a cherish
ed hope that President Cleveland
in his message to the regular ses
sion of tho 53rd Congress would
make recommendations on the
financial and taritf issues that
would remove all doubts ns to the
intention of the democratic admin
istration to carry out the promi
ses and pledges of the democratic
platform Were we entitled to
hopo thus We say yes The
plan outlined in the Chicago plat
form is plain and is what the dem
ocratic party declared for That
plan was clearly formulated and
layed before Cleveland The nom
ination was tendered him on that
platform He accepted the plat
form and the nomination We
say therefore that as an honest
democrat he is bound by the de
clared principles contained in that
platform Ho has evidently set
asidothe financial decree and now
attempts to discard or overthrow
tho tariff idea not only that but
he has acted so unfair towards tho
senate with reference to Hawaii
that that body must pass a resolu
tion inquesting him to eomo to
measure All this is so unbecom
ing in the president of this great
and gloriously free goeminent
that it cannot fail to excite miug
leddisappointment contempt and
derision in any but a Cleveland
vorsustheworld man That he in
every instance favors tho money
element northern capitalists and
northern industries ns against all
the rest of the United States there
can be no doutit Our hopes how
eer lie in th wImIoiu of the Sen
ate But iu case Congress follows
the dictates of Cieernd rather
than the declined plan ot Chicago
