THE BOCK IST.AXP ARGUS, MONDAY, APEIL 1, 1889.
A QUEER LABOR CANDIDATE.
TkeStaa Whom the Hepablleaa Klac
la Raaala aa Bait for Working
' Vote aa How Far Me la a
The "masheen" had 3 two fold purpose
in making McConochie its choice for the
Domination for mayor. One was to get a
man that could be used, having failed to
extort pledges from Ex-mayor Carse, and
the other was to make the nominee one
who, if antagonistic to the great body
of republicans, as tho "masheen" bad
every reason to believe such a man might,
be would answer as a good bait for fish
ing in the labor vote. McConocbie. the
"masheen" supposed, would accomplibb
both these ends. He was put through
the ordeal of the "masheen" catechism
and found to be in every way suitable to
the first requisite. lie would be the only
too willing tool of the "masheen;" he
pledged himself to abide by the "ma
sheen" slate of appointments.
This much being settled, McConocbie
was the man, but in its eagerness to "fix
up" a candidate that would satisfy the
first requirement, the "masheen" neglect
ei entirely bis qualities as a "bait" to
catch the labor vote. It is a truth that
Mr. McConochie is not the most popular
man in the world with the laboring
classes, organized or not. He was at one
time a member of the Rock Island Stone
Cutters union, but in order to hold his
position on the island, be did the bidding
of Col. D. W. Flagler, an avowed enemy
of all labor organizations and one of the
most severe task masters that ever domi
neered over the honest toiler, and
deserted the union. At that time when
Flagler sought to break up the stone cut
ters' unions, many Rock Island working
men left the island rather than that their
personal rights should by trampled upon
and did not return until Flagler was re
moved some of them never returned.
But waa this so with McConochie? If
so, why the title of a "scab," so generous
ly applied by faithful members of labor
unions, not intimidated by Flagler's
dictations? The differences of feeling
and principle between the republican
nominee and the labor organizutions is
perhaps no public concern, and would
not be so regarded were it not that he is
being put forward in tho interests of the
masheen" as a Knight of Labor candi
date In hopes of getting the support of
workingmen in putting into power a roan
who can be used by skillful politicians.
Workingmen, whether belonging to
unions or not, are not so easily hoodwinked.
"Where the Mrrtlonal frVrling Origin
ated and E&iftt.
Tha Argus is accused by the "mas
sheen" organ of using secret efforts to
atir up sectional feeling on the mayoralty
contest. This is because the Anoca pub
licly not secretly denounced McCono
chie foj declaring that property below
Twentieth street is not worth twenty-five
cents on the dollar. Is there any "secret"
attempt to stir up sectional feeling in
this? What the Anocs says is public.
What the Union gats, might, we are
frank to express, be said in secret. That
is where the difference between the two
papers lies, and it is hardly complimen
tary for the morning concern to judge of
the effect of what the Arous says by the
affect of what is contained within the In-
genius folds of its minature sheet. There
is no attempt, so far as the A rocs
knowa.to array the upper and lower po
tions of the city against each other, and
no one has thought of such a thing but
the "masheen." No one has cast reflection
on any part of the city but McConochie
himself, and for his denunciation and
attempted depreciation of property in the
very business heart of the city, we have
heard him condemned in as emphatic
terms in his own ward and in every up
town ward, as anywhere in the city.
Certainly there is no one.no matter where
he resides, whether up town or down
town, but that has sufficient pride in the
business section of the city to have it
wounded by disparaging remarks con
cerning it by a member of the common
council, no matter where he hails from.
Why don't the "masheen" organ in its
efforts to follow the dictation of the "ma
h?en" in "denying everything," deny
McConochie's assertion in this regard.
Is it waiting until the last issue before
election? If there is any sectional feel
ing it originated wholly with McCono
cbie, and with him it solely exists. The
feeling against his depreciation of busi
ness property exists all over the city in
tvery ward, in every home,.

The Blading Twine Extortion.
It waa the farming element that re
turned the republican party to power and
perpetuated the policy of enriching the
manufacturer with a bounty taken from
the pocketa of the consumer. In the
cities, among the workingmen, the tariff
reform idea made great progress, and it
was in the rural districts that it met with
the greatest opposition. Some of the ag
riculturist8, at least, who voted to con
tinue this trust-producing system are now
realizing their folly. A trust, which is
made possible only by the custom house
wall, which shuts off all foreign compe
tition, has doubled the price of binding
twine, which every farmer uses in bis
harvest field. The ordinary twine em
ployed in binding sheaves has heretofore
cost about nine cents a pound at whole
sale and from eleven to thirteen at retail;
the price has now been raised to about
twenty-five cents. This is an unpre
cedented increase in the price of a staple
article like twine. It is not only a staple
article itself, but employed in the prepar
ation for market of another staple arti
cle, namely wheat. Twnc is almost a
necessity to farmers, and binding ma
chines are generally constructed to use
it. Therefore, there would seem to be no
present relief from this grinding mo
The twine trust is nourished by the
present tariff. There is a heavy duty
both upon twine and upon manilla
paper and sisal glass, the raw material of
which it is composed. Domestic manu
facturers are thereby enabled to fix the
price of their product at whatever figure
will satisfy their avarice. Were it not
for the Chinese wall of a protective tariff
American manufacturers of binding
twine would be subjected to the compe
tition of the world and would be unable
to increase prices beyond a reasonable
limit. The democratic policy was to re
duce the tariff sufficiently to prevent the
formation of trusts, while still affording
reasonable protection to home industries,
but the farmers, blind to their own inter
ests, reetored the republicans to power.
The doubling in the price of binding
twine is one instance of the manner in
which they are paying for their short
sightedness, but there are many other,
although they may, perhaps, not be so
, Merritt, the Man.
The Bloomington Pantograph, after
mentioning the several democratic candi
dates for congress in the Nineteenth dis
trict, lately represented by the lamented
And as to who is the best democrat.
and the ablest man, among the demo
cratic aspirants of the Nineteenth dis
trict, so far as heard from, there is not
the least room for doubt. Unquestiona
bly that man is Tom Merrilt, who bas
represented a southern Illinois constitu
ency in either the senate or house contin
uously for more than twenty years, and
whose figure has become familiar to every
Illinoisan who mingles at all with public
men. He bas been the veritable wheel
horse of the Illinois democracy for a
quarter of a century. Always a dauntless
champion, ever manly, resolute and able.
be has lought the battles of his party
without flinching and was always in the
line of battle when others were hunting
the commissary stores. Republicans
have respected him for his honesty, and
because they knew just where to find
him. He never fell out of line to hide in
a greenback thicket or to set up a social
Always right there in front, bourbon
to the backbone, and covered with more
than the regulation quantity of real
Jacksonian mould, he is nevertheless a
generous foe, exhibiting a degree of fair
ness and common sense which has some
times made it seem strange that he could
remain ao loyal to the democratic party.
There is no other democrat in the Nine
teentb district of one half the prelimi
nary experience that Merritthas, nor is
there one there wbo knows so well the
needs of that constituency, or who could
so well secure their wants through legis
lation. In private be is a trusty, loyal
friend, with a heart as tender as a
woman, and a humor that has often "set
the table in a roar." For theclemocrats
to desert Tom Merritt now would be
base ingratitude. His greatest fault is
hia democracy; and while the Pantograph
hopes to see the democratic nominee de
feated by a nineteenth century republi
can, yet, if we must have a democrat we
prefer him in the unquestionable shape
of genial Thomas Merritt.

These, if existent in a natural quantity,
and nn vitiated by bile, play their part in
the functions of digestion and assimila
tion. But the . artificial acid resulting
from the in ibility of the stomach to con
vert food received by it into sustenance,
is the producer of flatulence and heart
burn. whit b are the most harrassing
symptoms of' dyspepsia. The best
carminative is Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters. Far inore effective is it than car
bonate of soda, magnesia or other alka
line salts. These invariably weaken the
stomach wi bout producing permanent
benefit. No man or woman chronically
dyspeptic, and consequently nervous, can
be in possession of the full measure of
vigor allowt d by nature. Therefore, in
vigorate and regulate the system, and by
so doing protect it from malaria, rheu
matism and other serious maladies.
