FRIDAY, JUNE 27, 1890.
Faemebs and laborers in this
country of all classes, regardless of
politics, if they understood their
interests, ought always to oppose
all taxes on the necessaries of life
as well as taxes upon the wages of
It is a fact that to-day there are
thousands of men in this country
employed as wage-workers, who.
with the industrial conditions that
prevailed fifty years ago, woult
have been engaged in business on
their own account and gratifying
the love of independence which is
the favorite theme of the Fourth
of July orator, and which is in fact
a matter of great consequence to
an American citizen.
The reckless legislation of the
present administration, and the
prodigal use of money for campaign
purposes, has financially foundered
the Government and the Eepubli
can party. There is a deficit of
8100,000,000 for Government ex.
penses, and the party campaign
fund is exhausted. Now since the
money has given out, the only way
the Republican party can retain
power is to pass an election law

invited Tanner down and out be
cause Tanner boldly opened the
vaults of the Treasury for the ben
efit of the soldier as was pledge
the soldiers during the Presidentia
campaign. But now when Pension
Commissioner Ratjm is making his
office a personal speculation, he is
allowed to keep his place. The
truth of the matter is, Harrison
was one thing before the election
and another thing since ho has
been elected our chief executive
The Eastern and Western State
have been ruled over by a long line
of Republican State officials an
thoroughly subjugated to Repub
lican principles, which pandere
to monopolists and created deprcs
sion and discouragement in the ag
ricultural communities. The farm
ers have been literally starved ou
of their acres and forced into other
pursuits. Their only resource was
to seek employment in the mining
districts and manufacturing towns,
where they receive scanty wages.
and when they strike against a re
duction of wages, in many instan
ces, they are kicked out to make
room for imported labor that is com
posed of the very scum of Europe,
This is "protection" to American
labor with a vengeance.
The War on the Farmer.
We propose to show in this arti-
le how tho farmers of this country
are being duped and swindled by
ho nefarious "protective" tariff
aws, and we will give facts and fig
ures which defy successful contra
diction. Tho facts are incontro-
Tho suspicion has existed for
some time that the "protected"
(Vmerican manufacturers were sell
ing their goods for less money in
foreign markets than in the home
market, but it was an extremely
difficult matter to prove that such
was tho case. But thanks to the
courage and indomitable persever
ance of our Democratic statesmen,
ho matter has been thoroughly in
vestigated and exposed. Copies of
the foreign edition of American
advertisements, circulated by the
American Mail and Export Journal
which publishes several editions
one is for circulation in this coun
try; the others are for circulation
abroad) havo been secured which
give the prices American "pro-
ected' manufacturers are offering
their goods in foreign markets. Wo
lave on file a copy of the New York
World, which has reproduced pho
tographs of advertisements circula
ted in South America, and of adver-
tiscments of the same goods circu
lated in the United States, that can
be seen at any time at The CliRON
icle office. These advertisements
are printed in foreign languages,
and aro closely guarded from tho
eyes of the American people, ex
cept tho manufacturers who have
them printed. They represent ev
ery class of "protected" manufac
tured goods. For the benefit of
the farmers we give below a list of
farming implements and the prices
the manufacturers sell them to the
American farmer and the prices the
same manufacturers sell the same
goods in foreign markets. It will
open the eyes of the farmers to the
great injustice being done them by
' ' protective ' ' tariff plundered
by tho mill-owners and manufac
turers, while the foreigner is pro
tected, the American farmer is com
pelled by law to pay double prices
for agricultural implements. Read
the following list and ponder it well

Tho protection the tariff gives
tho manufacturers of these goods
prevents their import, which lim
its tho competition for the Amer
ican trade to a few firms in the
United States, who form "trusts'
to prevent inside competition (else
their "protection" is worthless)
and agree upon a schedule of prices
atwhich they will sell to their coun
trynien. But outside the United
States, in competition with the man
ufacturers of all nations for the for
eign trade, tho prices are reduced
to meet foreign competition, am
yet the American manufacturer re
alizes a handsome profit on his for
eign sales, else he would not sell
Tho effect of our "protective
tariff system is, to make million
aires of tho manufacturers at tho
expense of the laboring classes, yet
the Republican party proposes to
increase the tariff for tho benefit o
