Thk Union compares Mr. Gest to a

When the Union says that Mr. Cable

It Is said that Joe Cannon is beaten
already. Should this prove true there
will be a scented month for sale cheap.
As an instance of the unfairness of the
Union it will be noticed that it cannot
even attempt to quote Shakespeare with
out distorting it.
People who use tobacco will throw up
their hats with joy after the first of Octo
ber. Instead of buying "two for a quar

fifty." as it will be seen that "prices has
"Jason" writes to the Union that he
knows a great deal all those fellows who
write for the Union know a great deal
but if he were to wiite out what he don't
know and compare it with what he does
know, the contrast would be astonishing.
Practically speaking the managers of
the people's wealth for the benefit of the
trusts say to those who come down with
the blood money, "put up and shut up.
We're running this thing and you may as
well understand right now that you are
not in it."
The platform of the Mercer county re
publicans endorses Blaine's reciprocity
and Gest's vote on the McK.nley bill at
one and the same time. There's a sam
ple of consistency for you. Blaine Las
said that the McKinley bill would not add
one dollar's worth to the wealth of the
farmer. But what has Gest got to do
with the farmer? He is in Washington
to obey the party lash, and every time
Reed cracks his whip our representative
wakes up and joins the procession.

what he has to say. but to pay no atten
tiootowhat Mr. Cable sass. "Jason"
hides bis identity, and makes a cowardly
attack under cover, and trusts the people
to believe him. Mr. Cable appears
in public and says the oppo
site. Of course, it doesn't make
any difference what "Jason" says,
txcept in so far as it shows his fangs,
and the motive of those who publish his
writings. There is a probability, how
ever, that "Jason" is a former kitchen
girl of the Cable family and has a griev

Boston-, Sept 27. Notwithstanding the
inclemency of the weather members of
tbe Massachusetts Reform club-turned
out in large numbers last night to greet
Henry Watterson, of The Louisville
Courier Journal, who waa the guest of
the club at a banquet at tbe Hotel Bruns
wick. Tbe address of the evening was
delivered by Mr. Watterson, who elo
quently defended the south against the
charge ot hostility to the north. He paid
his respects to Republicanism as exem
plified by the preseut leaders ot the party,
and Baid that ever since the termination
of the war there has existed at the north
a body of public men who persist in as
cribing to the white people of the south
purposes and a character wholly foreign
A Plea In Justification.
According to them the average south
erner is a cross hetweeu a feudal lord and
a modern tough, while tbe poor black
man is pictured as a patient martyr,
abused and menaced in his person, cheat
ed of tbe fruits of his labor and deprived
of his legal right to vote. He was here,
be aaid, to put hia foot upon the false
hood that tbe people of the south are do
ing anything, or have done anything, that
the people of the north would not have
done bad their places been exchanged.
Sosae Odious Com partsous.
In truth, as he saw it, tbe Republican
leaders of i&H) baveexebanged places with
the secession leaders of l&M. "Behold,"
he said, "in Mr. Doctrinaire McKinley,
Mr. Doctrinaire Yancey; in Mr. Agitator
Reed, Mr. Agitator Toombs; in tbe grim
egotism of the president, the disdainful
isolation of Mr. Jefferson Davis. Behold
in the unyielding assertion ot the consti
tutional right of tbe negro to vote and to
have his vote counted, tbe unyielding as
sertion of tbe constitutional right of the
master to call the roll of bis slaves be
neath the shadow of Bunker Hill monu
ment Behold in the restrictive dogma of
protection, the short-sighted aims aud
narrow spirit of tbe doctrine of secession.
"Nigger Will Be Nigger,' F.rc
"It is just as impossible to make a south
ern negro a white man as it is to make a
northern white man a negro, though that
is the miracle the Republican leaders are
trying to work. In many parts of the
south the negro has no conception of the
meaning of a vote. If he cannot sell it,
it possesses no value to him. Left to him
self he ceases to take any interest in poli -tics."
Watterson denounced the "un
reasoning sectionalism of demagogues
who seek . to in fin me oue kindred people
agttlnst another," and culled attention to
tbe fact that many of the most promi
nent men ot the south, before and since
the war, were of northern birth, most of
them from New England, while numbers
of northern leaders were of southern
Remarks on the Tariff.
In the course of his speech behan some
thing to say on the tariff question. "You
in New England cannot bring bides here
from Illinois, make them into leather, and
send the leather back to Chicago to be
sold at a profit You will not he able to
bring cotton here from Georgia, Ala
bama Mississippi, and work it for
a profit against tbe mill that sits
on the edge of tbe cotton patch when
the far-aeeing and the skilled youcg fel
lows you haveseut down there have made
ready for the contest The doctrine of
protection dooms your manufactures Just
as surely aa the doctrine ot secession
doomed slavery. You are olwtructed
by the west You are menaced by the
south. You have tariff walled yourselves
out of Canada and the rest of the world.
Reciprocity may help you a little in de
tail, but it will not save you.
The Remedy Proposed. -"Nothing
can save you short of untaxed
fibers and untaxed food, untaxed ores and
untaxed fuel, untaxed everything that
enters into living and manufacture, that
enters into the development of your pa
culiar aptitudes and genius, that enters
into the liberation of your industries from
a system which is slowly but . urely de
pleting them and your people from the
rigors of a geographical territory no long
er able to furnish the raw materials and
the markets necessary to their com mer-
cial and bodily sustenance."
A Welcome Blaine Will Repudiate.
He depicted the evils of protection from
his point ot view and welcomed Blaine
into the ranks of tbe free traders, though
the secretary of state waa more advauced
than he (Wateraori) in that direction. In
conclusion, he outlined what he said was
the ultimate danger to New England
from protection aud appealed from "such
politicians as Reed, Blaine, Quay, Hoar,
Sherman and Chandler to tbe good women
and good men ot the Republican party
who have been honestly misled by their
ghastly and lurid misrepresentations of
their fellow-citizens of the south. If what
tbey say be true, the south ought to be
blotted out in blood and flame. It is not
true, nor any part of it, in tbe spirit in
which tbey urge it How could it be,
unless the same be true of you? For, as
1 said before, it is 111 to 1 whn you
scratch a re Del that yon will fin a Yan
kee," Watterson delivered bisspeechwith great
vigor and was loudly applauded. He was
followed by Sherman Hoar, Democratic
candidate for congress iu Gen. Banks' dis
trict ud Dr. William Everett.
