Away With It.
Unit Lie, 80 Lie Low.
Protectionists invite and enconrrge
discussion of the tariff and of our indus
trial interests in general. The more the
subject is examined fairly and dispas
sionately, the greater is the gain for the
cause of home industry. On the other
hand, free traders, tariff reformers and
the like are engaged in a conspiracy of
silence. The word seems to have been
passed along to the free trade press to
lie low to discourage discussion of the
tariff and to divert attention from it
to the currency question or any other
subjoct except that one which is the
most important of all to (lie American
But the free trade tactics will not
avail. The great dominant question
which has occupied the attention of Al
exander Hamilton, Clny, Greeley, Ca
rey, Blaine and other great minds will
continue to engross public attention,
aud it will be studied by the plain peo
ple, as Lincoln called them, as well
as by every person who aspires to be a
statesman or a politician, or who has
the good of his country at heart.
A False lialanca Sheet.
The treasury department presented a
statement for September showing re
ceipts somewhat over f:),000,000 in ex
cess of expenditures. This statement is
a cheat The snRar producers of the
United States have not yet been paid
the 5, 000,000 duo to them, the author
ity to pay which was given by the last
congress. It is a jnst debt owing by the
government, aud so long as 1 of it re
mains unpaid the administration cannot
claim that its revenue exceeds the needs
of the government. The September
statement is false. While Uncle Sam
owes money to the sugar producers or
to any one else a surplus of revenue
cannot be claimed. False balance sheets
represent nothing but Democratic chi
canery. New Market For Farmer.
The "perfidy and dishonor" taiiff ha

The markets of the world are open to

their chief product is in their own

Right, mm r.Dal,
The free traders prophesied that free
trade in wool would advance the priot

The Mean Ham.
The citizen who wants labor and ev
erything else cheap, his own goods ex

his ancestors came over on the May

The tariff question should be studied
in every household. Women can readily
master its details.
