When the industries of the coun
tty prosper coal is in demand and
miners get their lull share of the
general prosperity. When the
mills and factories close or work on
short time for lack of orders, rail
way traffic falls oil and the mining
industry suffers. Miners are as much
interested in maintaining the Re
publican policy of protection as any
other clan of workingmen.
Tom Watson acknowledges that
the condition of American working
men is now vastly improved, and
that in their liomes they enjoy con
veuience of life which a king could
not command some bundled years
ago. If the Democracy had its

Organization does much to
inaintaiu the wages of labor, tut
organization of wage-earners does
not provide consumers. Con
sumption of coal is always great
est when mills and factories are
running full time. It is the policy
of the Republican party to protect
all industiies by wise and tenth
cient laws, while it lias been the
policy of the democratic party, us
evidenced by the last Cleveland
administration, to provide as much
work as possible for the artisans
of c;tkr countries by removing the

In relation to pensions, Judge

Mr. Hunt favored Rich Hill with

clearly, Mr. Hunt has gotten
splendid certificate of chatacter in
open court, if the newspaper ie

can safely go before the Democracy
