The otlier day we saw a Democrat
wearing a Jefferson button. Jefferson
was a believer in the doctrine of protec
tion and a home market, but the Demo
cratic platform denounces this principle
as a fraud. Now will some one point
out the consistency between the button
and the wearer of to-day.
Postmaster Schmidt has never failed to
call our attention to the Review's errors
in mailing supplements and demand a
correction. The News man is entitled to
the same privileges and if it hurts his
partisan feelings to be reminded of the
law, he should learn to curb his ignorance
Sand not lead it into dangerous places.
fllie Germania of Milwaukee, which
two years ago was such a staunch oppo
nent of the Republican candidate for
governor in Wisconsin on account of the
Bennett law, comes out now in full fa
vor of Spooner and denouncing Peck.
The school issue, it says, is dead and the
welfare of the §tate demands the election
of the Republican nominees.
If the News man's position regarding
the mailing of those supplements was
correct, why did he accede to the post
master's order? It seems to strike every
fair-minded man that the editor knew he
was wrong when he was wrote his insult
ing article, but with Globe like meanness
he had to extract dirty campaign mater
ial out of an honest performance of duty.
The nearer you bring the market to
the American farmer, the greater his ad
vantage over fluctuating prices and the
less his loss from transportation rates.
That's one reason why Republicans be
lieve in making everything right in our
own midst in preference to buying any
thing from across the seas and shipping
our produce or gold over there to pay
The Democrats evidently didn't like
Dan Lawler's eloquence after it got cold.
At any rate the Review published a ver
batim shorthand report of the greater
portion of his address and now comes
that Globe niimic, the News, and asks
the people not to believe it. It's incor
rect, it says, and yet it was taken down
word for word by the same gentleman
whose reports are accepted by the courts
of this judicial district.
Is the invention of the McCormick
binder due to a protective tariff asks
Hon. Cy. Wellington, the Democratic
orator. Why certainly. In the language
of Tom Reed you can't have inventions
without factories to encourage inventive
genius, and you can't have factories
springing up i». this country in every, di
rection if the goods that we need are to
be bought Europe und#r a tariff for
revenue only. Why is it that we have
patent laws, if it isn't necessary to pro
tect and encourage the genius and thrift
of our citizens?
According to the last census there are
in the Democratic State ofMississippi 257,
105 males over twenty-one years of age,
but the registration of voters in the State
under the new constitution shows only
76,742 voters. Where are all the rest?
The result of course has been reached
by the exclusion of the negro voters.
According to its voting population the
State would be entitled to but two mem
bers of congress. It is represented, how
ever, by seven members and claims nine
electoral votes. If Mississippi persists in
denying her local voters the exercise of
the right of suffrage, it is difficult to see
why, in common justice her representa
tion in congress should not be so re
duced as to conform to the actual voting
Things may be too cheap.—I am one
of those uninstructed political econom
ists that have an impression that some

find myself in full sympathy with this de

it me necessarily to involve a cheaper man

Every .manufacture encouraged in our

saves so much mondy to the country that
must otherwise be exported. It seems
therefore, to the interest of all of our

tant countries.—Benjamin Franklin.
It is my opinion that* eareful and ju
dicious tariff is much wanted to pay our
national debt and-afford us the means of
that defense within ourselves on which

proper distribution to our labor which

If wares or fabrics can be produced on
one side of apiece of water byJlfhor cost
ing but 5 cents per hour, and no barrier
is interposed to the importation and 5ale
of those fabrics on the other side of that
water it is just morally impossible they
shall continue to be made on this side
while labor no more efficient costs here
10 cents or over per hour. And if by
cheap labor in Europe and low (or no)
duties on our coast, our clothes, metals,
wares, silks, watches etc., are mainly im
ported, it is just impossible to keep up
the prices of labor here, even in the pur
suits still left to us. For under such cir
cumstances our manufactures and arts
must die out, our imports overbalance
our exports and our prices of land, labor
and products decline to a point at which
large quantities of the staples we are
still enabled to produce may be profit
ably exported. He who tells you he is
in favor of high wages and low duties is
either a knave or a dunce. He might as
rationally pretend to be in favor of hav
ing the farmers get a dollar a bushel for
their corn and the artisan at the same
be amply supplied with corn meal
at half a dollar a bushel. -Horace Gree-
The financial report of the Treasury
Department with reference to the growth
of the tin-plate industry very effectual
ly refutes all the Democratic representa
tions to the effect that not only have no
such plates been produced but that the
manufacture of them in this country in
competition with Wales is impracticable
The report shows that in the first year
after the new McKinley law took effect
there were produced in the United States
13,546,819 pounds of tin and terne plates
and more than 4,800,000 pounds of
American sheet-iron or steel were made
into articles or wares,tin or terne coated.
The-growth, of the'industry is shown by
the fact that while during the first quar
ter of the fiscal year only five firms were
engaged in the manufacture of these
plates, twenty-six were so engaged dur
ing the fourth quarter. At least eight
new establishments will be added to the
list of manufactories before the close of
the present quarter. Very emphatic con
firmatory testimony as to American com
petition under the McKinley act is found
in the fact that several Welsch tin-plate
manufacturers closed their works during
the last week in August 'The London
dispatch says that "ten" thousand hands
are idle." It added, '-Many of the work
men have sailed to find work in Ameri
ca." Facts like these may embarrass
our Democratic friends but they will
persist in their lying all the same,
