(tlCKUTIXGS TO ALL
With this issue of The Cnnox
ICLE we greet you tlio last time for
the year 1800. As the desire to par
ticipate in the festivities and pleas
ures of the holiday season, which
approaches and is universally rec
ognized and observed as n season
for enjoyment and merry-making,
has invaded our sanctum, we ask
the kind indulgence of our patrons
and friends for the omission of one
issue (which omission will not be
your loss), and, returning our sin
cere thanks for the support of the
poople of Benton County and else
where,, we wish you, one and all,
many,, many returns of a merry
Christmas and a happy New Tear.
Kentucky is the fifteenth State
which has adopted thj secret bal
lot law, and hereafter the people
of that State can exercise their suf
frage without the interference of
Republican bosses and officials of
factories and mills.
The third party movement has
assumed- definite shape and a call
for a convention has been issued
It would seem that this movement
is almost confined to the South as
tan of the thirteen States repre
sented in this movement are South
ern States.
Sitting Bull,, the famous Sioux
Indian chieftain, ..who inspired the
hostile demonstrations of the In
dians in the Northwest, resisted
arrest last Monday and was shot
down by Indian police; His death
will in all probability put an end
to the hostile purposes of - the su
perstitious aborigines.
"We acknowledge an invitation to
attend the celebration of the fiftieth
anniversary of the Memphis Appeal
and the dedication of the new seven-
story buildi ng now occupied by the
consolidated papers the Appeal
Avalanche. An illustrated souvenir
edition, commemorating the scenes
through which the Appeal has ad
vanced to its present magnitude and
usefulness, has been received, and
it is a credit to the enterprise aru
progress of the leading newspaper
of the Mississippi Valley,
The country will hail with joy
the elevation of that glorious old
Democrat, Gen. John M. Palmek
of Illinois, to the United States
Senate. General Palmer was en
dorsed by the Democratic State
convention last summer as the
choice .of tlio Democracy of tha
State for United States Senator,
and he mada a brilliant canvass o
the State, rallying recruits to the
Democratic standard, and succeed
ed so well that the majority of the
assemblymen elected are Demo
cratic for the first time in a quarter
of a century. Every Democratic
assemblymen elected is pledged
to support him when the assembly
meets to choose successor to
Chakles B. Fakwell, whoso term
p Senior expires in 1801.
Admitting the claim that the
protective tariff policy of the He
publican party has increased the
earnings of a few skilled laborers
in the course of a quarter, of a cen
tury, it has developed a system,
of which, while it secures the ad
vantages of the aggregation of cap
ital, it 1ms the attendant disadvant
ages of destroying the independ
ence of the individual. Let us see
how the Republicans "protect" the
men who are employed by them in
maim factories where protection is
claimed for the American working
man. Thtaction of Russell it Co.,
manufacurers, at Massillon, Ohio,
well illustrates the relation existing
between the manufacturer and the
workingmeii in their employ. The
members of the above firm are Re
publicans, and immediately after
the defeat of Mr. McKlXLEY for
Congress in the November election
between 30 and 40 workingmen who
had voted against him were notified
that their waeswere to be cut down
one-third, this notice of reduction
being intended as a request to quit
at once. Marly of the men thus
punished were among the oldest
employes, having worked from 10
to 2G years, and they were perfectly
respectable citizens. A member of
the firm stated to a townsman on
the day following the reduction of
wages that they "had reduced the
wages of free-traders," and give Ko
other reason at that time for the
extraordinary action, and the only
defense made by the firm was the
complaint that these Democratic
workingmen thus , punished had
een" offensive in the expression of
heir political views, but this state
ment was made before an investi
gating committee composed of in
fluential citizens in that district,
and before the firm- realized how
unpopular such action would prove.
The firm failed to coerce these men
into voting the Republican ticket,
and this extraordinary charge was
made of the spirit of revenge upon
he men who asserted the intelli
gent exercise of the right of suf-
rage, the highest privilege of the
American citizen, but beyond the
privilege of thousands of laborers
and workingmen in' the mines and
factories of the North and East,
who are given the alternative of
voting, the Republican ticket or
losing their position.
A. gain, manufacturers frankly ac-
knowledge that they "regret" to
advance prices on their articles, but
are compelled to do so by the enor
mous increase in duty imposed by
the McKiniey bill. It is impossi
ble and useless to conceal the ef
fect of the new tariff,- and the Dry
Goods Economist points out just
how much the actual cost of cer
tain well-known imported articles
has been increased by the new du
ties, which only illustrates the gen
eral tendency of the tariff to cause
the heavest increase on the lowest
grade of goods, and this increase
in prices comes out of the pocket
of the consumer. All the Repub
lican Congressmen voted for the
McKiniey bill. They were relied
upon by their constituency to look
out for the interests of the people
and protect them from being plun
dered. The passage of the Mc
Kiniey bill shows, clearly' and be
yond the question of a doubt, that
the confidence in the Repnblican
party of the Workingmen of the
North and Northwest has been
misplaced. Hie revolution in No
vember illustrates to what extent
the people resented the measure
which imposes an added tribute
upon G5,000,000 people for the ben
efit of a few hundred, and proves
that the people are studying the
effect of Republican legislation.
As more light is thrown on the
workings of the protective tariif
the more clearly it dawns upon the
mind of the American workingman
that its boasted protection for them
is a. delusion and a suniv.
TfiK fate ot the force bill seems
to hang in the balance. So far
the discussion of this m ensure in
the Senate has been forcible and
able, but it has been one-sided, as
the Republicans are not able to de
fend it and are dodging discussion.
Several years ago it was the boast
of the Republicans that they had a
majority of the intellect on their
side of tho Senate chamber. But
this has all been changed. The
debate on the tariff bill and the
Lodge measure has clearly demon
strated that tho Democrats have
nearly a score of men who are the
equals of any in intellect and abil
ity that ever sat in a legislative
hall, while there are not more than
three or four men on the Republi
can side above the average in in
telligence and ability.
The defeat of Wade Hampton
in the general assembly of South
Carolina retires one of the best men
in the country from the United
States Senate. Should the general
assembly of Kansas fail to retire
InOalls, the Alliance movement
will thus be sectionalized, and the
combined efforts of its leaders to
restore confidence would never be
realized, thus depriving them of
any influence in national politics,
