The advocates of the McKinley bill lose
all shame in its discussion. It is not al
ways through ignorance but often
through interest not their own interest
but the interest of the few. There are
undoubtedly men who are blinded by
plausible theories and statements and
columns of figures so arranged as to mis
lead unless carefully analyzed. Take
for instance, this sample of ignorance or
audacity, clipped from the Union:
Does any farmer think that the repub
lican house acted in a spirit unfriendly to
his material interests in protecting the
produce of his field and barnyard from
like products raised abroad, and in build
ing up a borne demand for what he has to
sell from skilled and prosperous mechan
ics? Yes, every farmer who has thought
anything about it has thought that the
republican house, and the republican
senate, too, have acted in an unfriendly
spirit towards him. A home demand
from skilled and prosperous mechanics!
Does not an unskilled mechanic consume
as much food as a skillful one? The
laudatory phrase is slippod in to mttke it
appear that the republican scheme of tax
ation is one that will make the American
mechanic both skilled and prosperous.
It means that or it means absolutely noth
ing. And whatever it means it is non
sense. The exports of the rhcal year of 1889
were CO,(M0,(iX) bushels of corn. 244.0M.
000 pounds of beef, 7?.'.000,(XtO
pounds of poik, Imcon and 1iuhp,
81.0OO.0OO pounds of cheese, and
15.5HO.0iK pounds of butter. Add to
this some 16.000,000 worth of live
stoek. canned meats and other food
products of a similar nature. The reat
quantity of poultry exported i not in
cluded. These shipme nts represent some
200.IXKl.000 bushels ,f corn and the
amount of corn that goes into whisky is
The year which ended with June last
showed the exports of flour to be 21J per
cent of the whole wheat crop of 1889.
A quarter of all the tohiicv. we
raise is exported as well as two
thirds of all the cotton. The
farmer himself consumes perhaps one
third of the crop he raises, but this does
not include the vast amount be uses fi.r
feeding the product which is exported
In the shape of different kinds of meat.
Now if this matter of w-t-j, " ' . '
. - ' ""eat and flour be
-buuKu io the other exportations and the
sum taken from the w.hole amount raised !
it will he found that the exports of urti
cles for food will reach fully one third of
the whole. Of cotton two thirds are re
ported. That is the eituation. The farmer 19
continually casting about bis eyes for a j
market, because he has too much of a
surplus product. And new fields should
be opened up wherever we can find them.
as it is found that European countries are
making an endeavor to get along without
American products on account of our
discrimination against those nations
For rome time past France and Germany
have been refusing our pork; Great Brit
ain is doing what she c n to get her wheat
from India, and is looking with more fa
vor upon Australia and Russia than upon
T . - ..
in view oi all this exportation the
Lnion would have the farmer believe that
the skilled and prosperous mechanic,
through the help of congress, would be
able to consume all the surplus of Amer
lean products. The matter is too silly to
Whenever the farmer waBts to know
wuat the government is doing for bim he
should turn bis attention to his own sit
uation and study that. He will then
learn me truth, and the truth is that he is
being robbed systematically robbed un
der the form of law.
Under a low tariff from 1850 to 1860,
the increase of agricultural wealth in the
United States was over 100 per cent
Under the high tariff of 1800 to 1870, the
increase was only 8!) per cent. By that
time would the farmer not have begun to
think that he was not receiving the prom
ised blessings? But under the high tariff
of 1870 to 1880 the increase was only 9
per cent. In the year 1880 all the agri
cultural wealth in the country was $12,
104.081,441. Supposing it had Increased
from I860 to 1880 in the same ratio that
it had increased in the ten years from
1850 to 1860, the agricultural wealth of
the country would have been 32,241,
087,000 in 1880 instead of the sum
named. So that the farmers in twenty
years, under protection, lost $20,137,
005,559. Supposing again that there
were 500,000 000 farmers in the country i n
1880, tho system of protection must have
coat each one of them in the twenty years
on an average over $4,000. That was a
much greater sum than the average
wealth of each farmer in that year, the
average being only $2,421. Then be
tween 1870 and 188), when protection
was high, the farmer's wealth increased
but 9 per cent.; when a revenue tariff ex
isted between 1850 and I860, his increase
in wealth was 100 per cent. And what
of the years since 1880 to the present
time? In all probability the census will
show that the increase has been little or
nothing. And yet the mortgages have
increased more than 25 per cent
Is this not a pitiable condition of af
fairs? Farms in the west covered with
mortgages farms that are among the
fairest and most productive in the world?
Take a rich agricultural state like Ohio,
for example. For the year ending June
80th, last, the mortgaged debts of the
different counties increased over $20,-.
000,000, making an average of $227,000
to each of the eighty eight counties in
A little while longer and every farmer
will understand how he is robbed.

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put to
getber, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years the doctors pronounced it a
local disease, and prescribed local reme
dies, and by constantly fail i ni? to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it incur
able. Science has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore re
quires constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only
constitutional cure on the market. It is
taken internally in doses from ten drops
to a teaspoonful. It acts directly upon

any case it fails to cure. Semi for circu

To the Arods:
Seneca, Faulk county, South Dakota,
oepf. 11. through the kindness of an
old friend in Rock Islar d county I re
ceived a copy of your valuable paper
containing a graphic account of the re
publican senatorial convention. As i
former resident of your county, I take i
deep interest in your affairs, and my in
terest in this direction even goes so far
as to concern me deeply in your political
auairs. in poliucs, as in everything else
I treasure the interests of the "dear peo
ple" above everything else, and I despise
a man wnom l near preaching and prat
ing aooui nis loveMor n s constituents,
when it is plain to be seen that his love
is only "skin deep." It makes my blood
boil in righteous indigntiion, I say, to
see such a man soliciting the support of
his neighbors on the ground ol "willing
ness to serve the best interests of his con
stitaency, and yet at the same time if
asked in what manner he would proceed
to such a task, he would not have the
manhood, if he were able, to tell in plain
words his actual ideas. In this I refer
to none other than the Hon. (?) Bill
Crawford, of Edgington township, the re
publican nominee for state senator As
I have before stated, the innn who has
not the moral courage to define his real
position is not tit to be a candidate upon
any ticket, much less upon the republican
ticket, whose resolutions anil platforms
declare it to he heyond sin or moral cor
ruption. Such a man is Mr. Crawford as
his record in the legislature will show. And
now as to his love for the producer, and
rtesire to help him in bis distress, shout
which he so manfully blasts. "Your
beautiful valleys and fields stretching up
ti your very door, makes inv heart too
full for utterance." There is noihing in
this miguty (t) speech to indicate the
massive brain which formed it, or the
faultless tongue that uttered it, but in
ha attempts to say that his pride is in the
vrv yield of grain which The citizens of
Koek Island county d!;p ;nd upon for
subsistence. However, if we g, a lime

reason for such interest in jour crops lies

suffering fellow-creatures, nd I cn re
member equally well how liberally most
ol tDem responded, l could nee that poor
crops had snortened the yield materially,
and yet, with the open-hehrtednes for
which my old friends are noted, they
readily contributed to the store for the
poor until I had the extreme pleasure of
niling an entire car with oats and grain
for the destitute of South Drkota; and il
our readers could have seen the tears of
gratitude showered on me, and the mani
fold blessings extended to ny friends in
Illinois, 1 am sure they ould have
thought within themselves, " It is well
wnh my soul." And, understanding as
I do, the true inwardness which impelled
this kind act of charity, they would also
literally despise the man who not only re
fused to contribute to such a fund, but
actually tried to speculate upon what whs

Thinking something wrong, I bastenei to

and refused to put in a kernel of grain or
cent of money. .Now comes the main
part of the story, and I want tvery voter
to read and understand it. In raising my
contributions, some who could not give
grain, gave money, the ?ame to he turned
into grain at Taylor Ridge. When Mr.
Crawford refused to contribute to the car
I did not seriously regard it. but I sup
posed he would be at leant willing
to let me have as many oats as
my money would buy (some 200
bushels) at a reasonable flzure. but
judge of my astonishment when he
informed me that he could let me have
the required number of bushels, but be
would be compelled to charge me twenty
cents per bushel for them. Oats were
bringing at this time sixteen cents a
bushel, and those be bad stored in his
warehouse cost him still less as ihey were
purchased early, and yet he win ted to
make a speculation of four cents per
bushel on money which your nadcrs. as
his constituents, had contributed to Da
kota's needy? Docs not this show the
true inwardness of the man, ai d does il
not show that such a man would be a
dangerous element to turn loose in the
legislature of your fair state? Pie! For
shame! Such a man would hardly hcsii

should he become impressed with the idea
that in dying they had not piren bim

put your own necks into tie rope?
Would you yourselves forge tie chains
with which to bind you into eternal lion

sharpen the dagger and hand it to your
deadliest enemy, and yet feel t Hat you

I say, beware! Do not put yo lr necks
into the rope, nor forge the chuins for
your own bondage, nor yet allow your
enemy to gain possession of the dagger
with which to let out your life's blood.
but instead, consider and think veil he

1 am trying to persuade you to open

devilish heart of the man in whom you
are about to impose the confidence of a

plenty of honorable men who a ould be
