Business Under Democratic
It is contended in s ime Quarters that if
Mr. Cleveland is declared president various
industries will prepare to restrict their
sphere of operations, and that in some in
stances there will be a complete susnen-
Bion of work. This will be believed when
it is seen. Business men who Uaro not the
time nor the inclination to familiarize
themselves with economic questions are apt
to depend upon their party newsoaners for
information. If these papers told them
bluntly that one-half of the people were
plotting to destroy the whole country, the
sensible business man would say that the
fools had taken possession of the editorial
room. But when the same newsnanfip hot.

That is to say: they believe it before

have heard of are so dangerous after all.
at all events it may be depended upon that
they will not begin to put up their shutters

We have not the least fear that tho dem
