Wilson, of tariff bill fame, is
being wined, dined and congrat
ulated by the aristocracy of
England for service rendered
that country by the provisions of
the bill passed by the last con
gress. At a banquet held in
London on Thursday last Sir Al
bert Day Rollitt, who presided,
said that "Mr. Wilson's name
should become honored and fa
miliar in England, and that Lon
don, in honoring him, honored
itself. That the new tariff law,
while it might not have realized
the expectations of its promoters,
had already benefitted England.
Furnaces were reopened in
Wales, in Yorkshire and an im
petus has been given to the tex
tile industries-" In a speech at
Gallipolis, Ohio, on Friday eve
ning, Gov. McKinley properly
scores Wilson and his colleagues.
He says: "This is cheeriug
news to the people of the United
States and will bring comfort
to the idle men who for more
than a year have waited for the
American mills to reopen^. You
have not heard of any commer
cial body in the United States
through its spokesman,, declare
that any industries ,in America
have been stimulated by,this law
whatever benefits have gone to
other countries. While the. ban
quet in London was proceeding
the board of trade of Edinburgh
sent its congratulations. There
was a singular absence of any
American dispatches. Here is a
word of encouragement which
Mr. Wilson himself gave to the
gentlemen of London: He said:
"Our protectionists .have been
building defences to keep you
and other nations from compet
ing with us in our home market.
The tariff reformers are break
down these defences." "That."
continued Gov. McKinley, "is
what we object to. If we do not
defend our home market against
the products of cheaper labor of
other countries, who will -do it?
Is it any wonder that the gentle
men of the chamber of commerce
of London applauded Mr. Wil
son when he uttered such a senti
ment. Mr. Wilson even despises
a free government, for he says:
"We are being rapidly sobered
though unappalled by the 4ruth
forced upon us that of all of hu
man governments a free govern
ment is the most complex and
difficult, and judging from the
world's experience the most un
certain and shortlived." "I beg
to assure Mr. Wilson of West
the government of
the United States resting as it
does upon the will of a free peo
ple is safe and secure, quite as
secure as the government con
ducted by the titled rtilers, and
that free people like us are cap
able of governing themselves
and have so demonstrated for
more than 100 years, and will be
alert enough to see to it that no
industrial policy shall long con
tinue in this country .that will
lower the conditions of its peo
ple to the level of their Euro
pean rivals and rob them of their
dignity and independence."
Leave No Stone Unturned.

J. F. jfoley returned from
Cape Breton, Halifax, Saturday
night, and reports his trip as
one of the most interesting of
his experience a» Well as one of
the most enjoyable. He says
the Canadian Press and the peo
ple of the Dominion generally,
are jubilant over the passage of
the Wilson bill in this country
and as a result are expecting an
era of prosperity. Farmers in
terested in wool growing are
fairly exultant, and why should
they not be?—Negaunee Herald.

Already the effects of the re
duction of tariff is being seen in
the lowering of wages. It is
simply impossible that tariff
should make any considerable
reduction in manufactured goods
without causing some reduction
in the wages of labor employed
in their manufacture. All man
ufactured articles have a large
labor valuation in them and it is
unreasonable to suppose you can
reduce the selling price of the
product of labor without ulti
mately reducing the pay of that
labor, no more than you can re
duce the selling price of iron ore
without reducing the profits of
mining, and necessarily reducing
the wages of the miner.
Ignatius Donnelly has been
studying synthetic chemistry of
late and says that the composi
tion required for making a Re
publican editor is about as fol
lows: "22 gallons lye, 10 lbs.
calf's tongue, 5 gallons more lye,
20 lbs. brass, 10 gallons more
lye, 3 quarts dust of gold bugs,
ouncc brains fill up with lye."
Mi». Donnelly's make-up differs
from the average editor. It
does not take a student of syn
thetic chemistry to discover that
a fat piece of pork, a quart of
gall and a balloon full of wind
will make an equal of the Hon.
Ignatius with his §1 character.
A good audience listened to
the address of Rev. I. Bergstrom
at Crockett's Opera House on
Wednesday evening, and heard
one of the best talkers in the
State of Minnesota. Mr. Berg
strom is a republican from the
ground up, an eloquent speak
er, and his fund of facts and fig
ures, politically, Is complete.
He poured hot shot into the
camps of the enemies, and made
many warm friends in the au
dience during his address.
Yes, we have read of the re
publican landslide in Connectt
cut. Connect'cut is a manufact
juringsta and her industries
are directly benefitted by a pro
tective tariff, and the landslide
here is but another evidence of
the revulsion of thought through
out industrial districts.
Judge Harlan, of the U. S.
Supreme court, hold that strikes
are legal and that men have a
right to quit work, either singly
or in a body, irrespective of the
discomfort which may arise. He
further holds, however, that
they have no right to conspire
to do damage or to embarrass.
LOCAL NOTES AND COMMENT.
tfrank Notton, the mouthy agi
tator, who now languishes in the
Bessemer jail awaititig trial at
the November term of court, has
been practically deserted by his
alleged friends. Up to a few
days ago, one or two of his
friends called frequently on him,
but these haye now dropped out
and left him entirely to his own
reflections. It is an evidence of
the stern logic of events that
the man who, a few weeks ago,
marched proudly at the head of
hundreds of misguided stiikers
and blatantly announced he had
hosts of friends, lies today in a
prison cell, deserted by every
person but the turnkey who
hands him his rations. So may
it be with all such, agitators.
Gov. McKinley is not espec
ially given to making turns upon
words, but when he. does so he
always makes a center shot In
his Maine speech he said that
during the eighteen months that
the democratic president and
democratic congress have been
running the government nothing
else has beea running. This is
literally true with the exception
that soup houses haye been in
full blast and idle workmen in
hobo armies have been running
about the country.
