DON'T LIKE FREE TRADE.
Tho Canadian Manufacturer has
the following scathing language in the
denunciation of the free trade policy
of tho mother country :
"Uuder Its wretched system of free
trade the working classes of Groat
Britain aro constantly going from bad
to worse in the social scale. All of the
great Industries of that country by
which tho working classes nro sup
posed to live are belug destroyed, and
the unfortunate peoplenre sinking Into
despondency, poverty, crime and
wretchedness, from which it Is Impos
sible under the present fiscal system to
And yet this is just the condition
that free traders would bring tho work
lug classes of this country to if they
had their own sweet will, and the
strongest part of it is, that so large a
portion of tho working peoplo nro bo
partlsanly hidebound, that they vote
regularly with tho free trado party
that brings this state of nOairs about.
Why do not working people get tin ir

publican. September 3d is the last .day for
the registration of voters.
That was a pretty drastic way of
meeting an emergency that was
adopted by Captain Bakker of the
steamship Obdam, but then it was so
ell'ective that tho man who had the
courage to adopt It will probably find
himself fully sustained by publio sen
timent. The shooting at sea of a man
who was at the head of a crowd of
mutineers is an adventure about as
exciting as even Cooper or Scott or
Clark Rueaell could imagine or write.
Yet this promptness and courage of
the captain In taking a course no
doubt saved the lives of many per
sons. Tho course of Captain Bakker
has already been passed upon, it
seems, and tho conclusion readied that
he was Justified in what he did, and
certainly, if all the facts aro as stated,
he deserves credit for his action.
Tim attention of our reuders is
called to the, fact that Thursday, Sep

be registered or assessed on or before

THOUGHTS ON THIS AND THAT
HEMES TERSELY TABULATED.
ho Tattle- of tho Tattlers Timely
Taken and Told Typograplcally
in a Tasteful and Tompting
Tbo feoling of Post 140. G. A It., of
town, towards tho Pottsvillo G A. B, mem
bers is not of a character that warrants tho
belief thht tho boys In blue will bo well
ropreanted as a body in Poitsvillu on
October 1st, when tho monument is to bo
imveilod. There must bu a change of feel
ing soon, elso tho Post will only ba repre
sented by individuals, if at nil.
The causu of this feeling took its root
threoj oirs ago, whon tho Pottsvillo G. A.
It. men behaved in a most discourteous
mannor towards Post 146. At that time
Shenandoah was the placo lor celebrating
Grand Army Day and, although tho Potts-
illo Post had a year's nolico, it mado an
engagement lo go to Beading and gave
Shenandoah the go bye. An attempt was
made to cover the act of discourtesy by nn
xplanalion that tbe i'otUvulo 1 ost was
not satisfied with tho hotel arrangements,
but niombors of tbe Post subsequently ad
milted that tho trip to Bending was thu real
causo for thoir non-appearance horo.
No secret of 140's Post room is betrayed
when it is said that tho members are in
clined to pay tho Pottsvllle peopla in their
own coin. It is argued, on tho streets and
ither places, that not only the G. A. B.
men, but tho Pottsvdla people as a whole,
at o most selfish, discourteous and ungrate
ful. They clamor for overything and it is
like pulling teeth to got them to potronizo
anything oulsido of tho county seat.
But there aro so mo who tako a more
conservative view of the situation, and it is
hopod their arguments will provuil. The
unvolling of the foldior's monument inter
ests all the old soldiers of tbe county.
Shonandcah is interested in it by virtue of
tho aesistanco some of its veterans rendered
in accomplishing tho doeds of valor tho
monumoits is intended to perpetuato, and
she should ba properly represented at the
unveiling. Now, lot Post 140 return good
for ovll. Let them kill the Pottsvillo
mrguls with kindness. It may tiavo tbo
ctfect of bringing them down from the
roost and impressing upon their minds that
it is far mora graceful to bo courteous than
Speaking of killing ono with kindness
reminds mo of a story told of a man who
was formerly a resident of this vicinity.
Ha had always believed his wifo temperate,
but it gradually leaked out that tho was a
heavy drinkor. Tho husband persuaded,
but the habit hal secured too strong a hold,
so ho nt last, to use hia wuids, concluded lu
kill her with'Jdndnoee, Ho . purchased c
barrel of liquor and told bcr to imbibe as
often and frooly as sho mlghf wish, Tho
wifo accepted tho generous odor with pro
fuse thanks fur what appeared to be so
much kindness. In a few months tho man
was a wl lower.
Tho arton of the School Boird in np
pointing a committee to atoertaln if thre
has been any ducrimWtion against Shen
andoah in tho appropriati ns for publio
schools by iba ftato dupir.ment is com-
mendable. As tbo matter stands now the
peopla of our town have every reason to
complain. Perhaps an investigation will
show that tho figures publishod are correct,
but tho poople should have an Inside view
of tho situation at all ovents.
Tho official census shows that Shenan
doah has a population qf 15,014, Pottsvillo,
14,117, Mahanoy City, 11,480. Shonan-
doah's population exoeeds that of Pottsvillo
by 1,827 and that of Mahanoy City by
l.OsS Tho appropriations for public
schools gives Shenandoah $5 207 ; Mahanoy
City, $5,240 19 j Pottsvillo, ?5,789.21.
