THE WOKIUXCi MAN'S TARIFF.
What tho workiugman of this country
needs is a tariff which will cause more
goods to bo mado here, and not a meas
ure which begins by making over $70,
--00(1,(100, or one sixth of all our dutiable
The workingman of this country needs
a tariff framed by statesmen who will
say to him, "Yon havo labored faithfully
to perfect yourself in the manipulation
of worsted goods, and that industry, em
ploying 20,000 operatives, shall not be
entirely wiped out in this country on
account of an inequality of the tariif."
The workingman of this country needs
a tariff framed by statesmen who have
the courage to revise the. tariff, not by
men who merely cut and slash the rates
of duty and placo one-sixth of the duti
able imports upon the free list. He
needs a tariff that will protect labor and
reduce rather than increase the influx of
foreign goods made by foreign labor.
Ho needs a tariff framed by statesmen
who recognize the fact that tho tariff is
not a tax on tho consumer of domestic
goods. l)iit a tax paid by foreigners for
tho privilege of selling their goods in
the best and most profitable market in
And this is tho kind of tariff we shall
have. Harrison and Morton are elected
and tho House is made republican.
WHEN THE WOULD WILL END.
If this world is to close its career in
the very near future, as the Adventists
arc now claiming, tlio Herald cannot
lielj) thinking of the vast deal of refor
matory measures that must bo inaugu
rated in the short time intervening, if
Ihe prophecy of Daniel about the lion
and the lamb lying down together is to
be fulfilled. We do not think the mil
lenium is quite so near at hand. In our
opinion, that period will not bo ushered
in for a long time. Important changes
must take place first. For example:
The cord-wood man must first placo all
the imperfect, gnarled and rotten sticks
on tho outside of his load; the agricul
turist must put tho poorest apples and
potatoes nt tho top of tho bag; and a
reform must bo effected in the manu
facture of strawberry boxes. The mil
lenium cannot be ushered in until street
corners and dry-goods boxes are aban
doned by loafers, and fast young men
cease to swear in the presence of ladies;
until young ladies ee;ise to bang their
hair, and hop beer no longer intoxicates;
until ministers ceaso to pray 30 minutes
on Sunday and begin to preach what
they actually believe; until tho goose
roosteth elsewhere thau on tho sidewalk,
an 1 Senatorial " courtesy " shall make
way for Senatorial decency; until Indi
an agents shall become as respectable as
the Indians, and the Star routes aro no
longer a burden; until milkmen furnish
unsuspicious milk, and butter is no lon-
gor strong enough to raise side-whis
kers ami BTtpport a family; until the
"chin" of the book agent shall become,
a pleasant memory, ami the odoriferous
tramp refuses to accept a cold bite-with
out paying for it in work; until the am
ateur musician seeks the deep solitude
of the forest to practice, and tho dry
goods clerk raises not his own salary,
uiitil commercial travelers become satis
fied with having one wife and pay more
attention to business than to giddy
young girls; until opposing editors ex
change boquets of June rosebuds, and
sehoolma'ms cease, to say "ither" and
"nither" and "brethnng" and "eer
fcUJgly"; until the lucifer match shall
lose its cussednoss, and the unloaded
gun stops shooting people; until busi
ness shall be more pressing than the la
test corset, and the corset is banished to
some barren waist; until the good dea
con ceases to build his hog-pen under
his neighbor's nose, and female lectur
ers are broken in two and sold for three
fourths of a cent a pound; until people
offer to pay cash for personal "puffs"
in the newspaper, and all politicians be
come thoroughly honest -when all those
things, and many more, come to pass,
the lion and the lamb scene will lie in or
der. But all this legislation cannot be
crowded through before the 19th of next
June, and coußcH|uently no one need
worry about tho perihelion of the plan
ets or a general 6mash-up of things tor
restial, but keep right on with their fall
A brute was hanged at Charleston,
Mo., one day last week, and just before
ho was jerked to paradise made the fol
lowing speech to tho spectators, two or
three thousand in number:
"My brothers and sinters, black and
■white, I am standing on the brink of
eternity. lam happy to say I am at
rest with Jesus. I am going to wear
the golden slippers and the long white
robe, and walk np and down the streets
of glory. lam in Jesus and he is in me.
I want to tell you all to love each other,
be honest, live right."
The prisoner then joined in singing
" Precious Name," showing no fear or
trembling of the voice. At the close of
the song ho stepped upon tho trap, was
pinioned, the nooso was put on, and at
one o'clock the trap was sprung and
Howard Underwood had paid the penal
ty of tho law. This Underwood, who
was a colored preacher, killed his para
mour, Belle Lucas, a colored girl, in the
woods. He first shot Ikt, and then beat
her brains out with the butt of his gun.
It was an atrocious murder, without one
palliating circumstance. Cut down sud
denly in a life of sin, this girl's soul, ac
cording to the orthodox teaching, is now
suffering tho torments of the damned in
Hades. Tho red-handed murderer, ac
cording to the same teaching and his
own statement, is now " walking up and
dowu tho streets of glory," because ho
had a chance for gallows-repentance!
Tho injustice of this —well, religion and
the law are very kind to murderers, or
Underwood lied like a pirate. Which?
In a recent address tho Rev. Dr. How
ard Crosby remarked that tho newspa
pers " didn't know tho difference between
v college and a circus." If appearances
count for anything it is by no means
certain that the press should bo blamed
for falling into this error, occasionally.
Some of our colleges should be thank
ful that they aro not advertised as howl-
Wi: ABB glad to learn that this coun
try is rapidly recovering from tho de
pressing effect of the defeat of an Amer
ican riile team and a boat club by the
blasted British. Vv'e actually believe that
if an American base-ball club was to bo
defeated at the hands of an English
nine, tho industries of this country
would not be sensibly affected for more
than a week or two!
His excellency, Hadji Hassein Ghooly
—ahem! Once more: His excellency.
Hadji Hassein Ghooly Khan—onco and
again; altogether now. (This is a news
item, and not only is it important but
it's true). His excellency Hadji Has
sein Ghooly Khan Motamedel-Var, the
newly appointed envoy extraordinary
and minister plenipotentiary from Persia
to the United States, has arrived at
Washington and assumed his position.
The difficulty which confronts Con
gress in framing a law relating to immi
grants is how to exclude tho inferior,
while admitting the superior class. Tho
poorest immigrant that arrives may be
one of tho most desirable —one out of
whom the most useful citizen may be
made. It is tho moral as well as the
physical worth of the immigrant which
is to be considered, and that is not read
ily ascertainable. Yet it is evident that
the question of immigration must soon
bo considered and determined for good
The following story has been going

Richard Hoffman, of Somerset town
ship. Pa., has been a cripple for years,
being paralyzed in his lower limbs so
that ho was compelled to use a wheel
chair. On last Thursday week he
crawled behind a barn, and while en
gaged in prayer heard a voice say:
"Arise and walk." He obeyed the com
mand, and has been walking ever since.
This is good—very good. But we
should think that in tho courso of a
week or more Mr. Hoffman would be
ready to sit down again.
The recent copious showers havo pen
