Hon. Qrover Cleveland continues
to be the bugaboo of the republican
party, which never tires of circula

are now ruled by a woman, the sister
of the late King Kalakua.
Impeachment might have been a
good way to have gotten rid of Speak

quicker way, besides it was an abso

Mr. Blaine has undertaken the
largest contract of his life, if the gen

Mr. Harrison is credited with hav-
ng taken Secretary Foster into the
cabinet for the express purpose of
checking the Blaine boom. It may
be true, but we fail to see the neces
sity for all this wire pulling on the
part of the republicans. They
haven't one chance in a million to

Notwithstanding the protection
given by the McKinley law, An
drew Carnegie,the iron king, recently
made a heavy cut in his workmen's
wages. Now he has made a cut into
the United States Treasury by being
awarded a contract for $3,500,000

Labor that the cost of producing a
ton of steel rails is ' less in America
than in England and other Europe
an countries be true, and we have no
reason for believing it otherwise, the
only object attained by putting a
high tariff upon steel rails is to in
crease the profits of the American
manufacturer of them. If we can
produce them as cheap or cheaper
than any other country why shouldn't
we compete with the rest of the
world by striking them from the list
of so called protected articles?
