The great question of tarifft
"which agitates the country 'in
connection with McKinley's name,
has elicited comments from every
- nook and corner of the land. That
or. it is a measure in direct antago
nism to the enunciated principles
= of Demoracy; that it does not
meet the approval of the toiling
masses; that its ultimate inten
n tionsrare the perpetuity of the
power that has brought it into
existence; that it is a compensa
tion in return for election
S"boodle;" that it is to be made
to the future lever to boast its
1e authors again into place and
's authority, if it can be utilized,
°f have been clearly portrayed,
ýr Notwithstanding the broad and
untenable assertions that it is for
o revenue, and its protective plati
d tudes are in the interests of home
ý productions Lnd the fostering of
sAnimrican industries, no one who
a carefully scans its provisions, will
f, for a single instant concede. Its
whole tendency is in the interest
of the manufacturing corporations
in order to increase their revenue's
Sand profits fQr the express purpose
to secure means to purchase the
neat election at the polls.
r The Maine Democracy, Indis
mayed by long years ot defeat,
planting themselves with heroic
':fortitude on the principles of their
.party; still hopeful of theeventual
r triumph of enunciated doctrines
Sthat are rapidly attaining national
ascendancy, boldly anneounce that
, the triumph of Harrison and his
s party was due to corrupt methods,
r aad the open purchase of floaters1
in New York and Indiana. 1
r They further announce in their
hrecent platform: "Since his
accession to power, he (Harrison)
t has-shielded the bribers, reward
e the 'men who furnished the
corruption funds, and muzzled the
press, by subsidizing its editors
withilarge omcee, and the Re
publican leaders in Congress pro
I' . poseto enact a tariff act not for
ire'eoue, not even for protection,
