THE HOCK ISLAND AUG US, FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, IE39.
THE DAILY AHGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Fridat, Acgcbt 23. 1889.
Tk AfrtfM I'iwiw,
During the hot, sultry season when the
president It resting at Deer rrk, Blaine
sniffing the cool breezes tbst play about
Bar Ilarbor, and tbe Dlsstoos, Dobsons
and others of the tariff-fed monopolists
are enjoying the sally air of tbe watering
places that line the shores of the middle
and lower Atlantic, the "American farm
er" Is busy at work. To him there comes
no week of rest from work and care, for
surcease of labor with him means loss of
crops and inevitable ruin. While be is
sweating beneath the boiling sun of July
and August, the editors in the employ of
salt trusts, sugar trusts, steel trusts and
various other combinations, are busy ar
ranging the figures of the crop report.
One of these tells us that "Trade is un-
usually dull for this season, but the ex
rellent condition of the crops (rives a
comfortable assurance to us that agricul
ture, tbe basis of all our wonderful pross
perity in tbe past, will again lighten the
dark gloom of despondency, -which at
present lowers upon our manufacturing
and mining enterprises.' Exactly so.
It is tbe agriculturist and not the man
ufacturer that furnishes "the basis of all
our wonderful prosperity," And for this.
how is he rewarded? Taxed on his coal.
his saft, sugar aad soap. Taxed on his
nails, fence-posts, harness and wagons
Taxed on his mower and reaper, and on
tbe twine that is used to bind his sheafs
of grain. Taxed on his straw bat and
cotton shirt, his shoe strings and pants
buttons. Taxed on his rain barrel, wash
tubs, tin dippers and butter crocks,
Earthenware, glassware, hardware,
brick stone and lumber, glass jars for
holding fruits, and wax for scaling them
are each and all taxed to the farmer who
must sell bis products in tbe markets of
tbe world, taking Liverpool, England,
prices, because the price in that market
fixes the maximum price in this country.
Some day the farmer will understand the
scheme of tariff robbery that consigns
him to unremitting toil, the workingmen
to strikes and lockouts, and the syndi
cate of manufacturers to the seaside or
in journeying to Europe. In the mean
while, let the farmers of Illinois ask
themselves the question: "How doth it
profit a man to gain tbe whole of noth
ing and lose the results of his labors by

It was S o'cliK-k before be and Secretary

breakfast. After breakfast he received many
friniU, and at 10 o'clock the public came in
to greet him. This reception was in charge
of tbe Cit2n' and 11. A. R committee, and
before it Iwgnn the crowd around the New
Deniaon was dense. For an hour tbe recep

dreds personally known to tbe president.
With th-se he exchanged a word or two.
There were also present many of bis com

A Patriotic Hope Realised.

No American citizen need avoid it or pass it
with unsympathetic eyes; for, my couutry

TAKE YOUR CHOICE, GENTLEMEN.
Judg Cooley Cilvea the Warring Rail
ways Kum Healthy Ma lirine.
Chicaio, Aug. -A Judge ( oolcy yester
day delivered himself of an authoritative
statement in regard to tbe famous propor
tional tariff of the Burlington i nd Northern
road. It was submitted yestsrday after
noon by Chairman Faithorn tr a meeting of
the general freight agents cf the north
western roads and cause.! a pr n' nin I sensa
tion. Following is the memorandum opinion
of Judge Cooley:
1. The tariff tbe Chicago, Burlington and
Northern has put in force is lothing but a
local tariff. It is not a joii t tariff, and
nothing can be a joint tariff in which all
lines do not unite; therefta-e every time the
charge on a local consignmen t is different
from the rates named in said tariff it is a
breach of the law, each consigi nient being a
2. Even if rates were otherwise legal, the
disparity between them and the so-called
local rates would of itself ren ler them ille
gal, and this applies whether t ie fourth sec
tion Is ignored or not.
A Radical Iteineily Sugi.-ested.
& If this is persisted in the rmady will U
for the commission to reduce t le ha?al rate
to the basis which has been est ibhshed. Tin
roads must expect that remedy will Is? ap
plied and that speedily, (NoU If the com
mission announces rate tbosd rates bold
good until changed by them.)
4 The commission prefers t tat the roadt
iWal wHh Uik qisulim Uansslvn, hut can
not toieraie tiie present conilitn.n of thin.
and prompt action must be had. It la
public scandal and disgrace, a id will, if it
ia continued, reflect uon the commission.
As the action taken is invalid no ten days'
notice of change is necessary.
The Roads Take No") ctlon.
The four roads which have leen violating
the law by mnking the proportional rates re
ferred to are the Burlington a id Northern,
tbe Wisconsin Central, the Milwaukee and
Ht I'aul, and tbe St. Paul and Kansas City.
Manager Egan, of the Ht I'aul and Kansas
City, at onc-e announced that, begiuning to
day, he will put into effect locally from Chi
cago to Ht I'aul and to all intermediate
points the 15 cent proportiot al tariff. A
motion was made at this junct ire to with
draw all proportional rates in t te northwest,
and at once return to the tariff in effuct be
fore these rates went into effect. Traffic
Manager Humblin, of the Bi rlingt on and
fiortbern, stated, however, that be was not
ready to vote on this proKition, aud desired
first to consult General Man igcr Harris.
Tbe meeting thereupon adjot rued for tbe
day, without taking a vote on the proposi
tion to restore tbo old rates.

could not go into the mines hero at these
figures and make a living, and said they
would ' prefer to leave Spring Valley and
seek employment in other mines. The part
of the proposition which referred to the em

machinery, but now that a proposition had
been male to the third-vein men, the most of
them bsving formerly worked in the third,
