Itcpubllcnii "Free Traders."
There Is no uncertain sound in
tho resolutions of tlio Republican
State Convention of Minnesota.
Tho resolutions declare not for a
"revlilon,1' but for "a reduction of
tho tarlir, so that tho taxes; on tl)o
necessaries of living may bo mod
crated." It may bo said that tho
phraso "necessaries, of living" s
quite clastic, but tho Republicans
of Minnesota have given it a very
definito and distinct meaning.
In the Forty-eighth Congress four
of the members from Minnesota
voted to consider tho Morrison
horizontal Tariff bill, which was
such a scarecrow to tho protection
ists, and all four of them were re
turned with largely increased maj
orities by their approving Republi
can constituents. In tho present
Congress three of these members
have voted to consider tho Tariff
bill of the Ways and Means Com
mittee to reduce tho duties on raw
materials of manufactures and on
the necessities of living, and their
course has just boon indorsed by
tho Republican State Convention
Hard Up for Cnmimlgu Mntcrlal.
Tho Republican party is in sore
Their first idea was to make n
largo amount of capital out of tho
Payne investigation, and falling
in tliis they next tried to smirch the
name of John McBrido, the Demo
cratic candidato for Secretary of
State, this for awhile promised
well, but the promptness with
which Mr. McBrido came forward
with his answer, and waiving all
rights and legal delays demanded
to be tried at onco convinced them
that no reliance could be placed in
the smirching of McBrido, and
therefore when tho case was called
in court tho plaintiff had tho case
The party was now without
anything with which the people
could bo hoodwinked and mndo
blind to tho revolutionary course of
the g. o. p. in the last Legislature
as led and directed by Foraker,
Kennedy & Co.
In this emergency, came Gov.
Foraker armed with the pardoning
power, and with the aid of a thrice
convicted horse thief and with pre
viously announced plans, and great
blowing of trumpets gavo to the
public the story of tho leather cane.
The Governor dwelt with great
unction and pathos on the tale of
horror hatched for tho occasion.
But here the fates wcro against him
also. Tho professor of anatomy
at tho college, under whoso super
vision the body of tlio negro said to
be skinned and tho skin used in
making canes, says tho body was
received at the college with his
epidermis intact, and ample testi
mony can bo produced to show
that McCoy's body was also sent to
the college without mutilation.
Governor Foraker says ho has
one of tho canes in his posession,
which when divested of its coat of
varnish has such a horrible stench
about it that it makes him sick.
We have no doubt that he feels
sick, 'and the story will sicken to
death tho effete party to which ho
belongs before tho campaign is
Wo reproduce tho following unique
pieco written by an inmato of
tho Ohio Penitentiary and publish
ed in tho "Columbus Capitol" two
or threo years ago. If ho hasen't
escaped, judging from his frco and
easy manner of lying ho would be
ablo to give Gov. Foraker somo val
uable points. Lot Joseph consult
him at once.
Tho prisoners in tho Penitentiary
have to kill tho superabundance of
time on their hands in somo wny;
hence, tho poetically inclined indito
doggerel verses of amatory or an
autobiographical nature. Tho fol
lowing sample is from Mr. Macaran,
who appears to wear a vory un
Gcrman name, although claiming
to hail from the Rhino:

Tlilh is it roenrd that any first

of, nnd tho reader no doubt will bo
struck at tho Jnato modesty of Mr.
Macaran, who tints condenses such
a life of stirring events into nbout

That Walking Stick.
Any one in need of n walking
stick should at onco send an appli
cation to J. B, Forakor, by the grnco
of tho Republican Party, Governor
of Ohio. Forakor is now In tho
cane business, and by tlto help of
his horsc-thlcf ally is apparently
trying to bent out his political
brains and is succeeding to tho en
tiro satisfaction of Hon. John Sher
man and his friends.
We had given tho Governor credit
with tho ordinary amount of sense,
and wo acknowledge our surprlso
to see him so easily duped by his
his political enemies. Sherman Is
