RICH BY TAXATION,
Mr. Oglesby Tells the People What
He Knows About That Scheme.

It might have been thought from the
talk beforehand and from the prepara
Hons mane that Uncle Dick Oglesby
would have had a very warm reception
here yesterday and that for hours before
his appearance the streets would have
oeen unea with anxious people and the
farmers' wagons would have blocked the
way. Instead there was not a ripple of
comment or excitement. The streets
were as usual, and the expected hurrying
to and fro did not materialize. It was
not because the speaker was an indifferent
one, for Uncle Dick is a wheel horse and
a war horse, but yesterday he was ham tin
eombat. He was in his element though
abusing the democrats and from a re
publican standpoint his speech was a very
able one. He has told the same story so
often th8t there is a probability he has
begun to believe it, intelligent as Uncle
uicK is. liut the people knew what to
expect. They knew they woald be told
thai they were blessed by having at
Washington a set of men who knew how
to tax them; and they knew that when
Oglesby told thi m that the greater the
taxes the greater the prosperity that they
were expected to believe it. They could
believe it or leave it alone as they
pleased, and so they remained away and
thought the matter over.
From the narper house to the court
house square, Bleuer's band marched
down the street. The usual number of
small boys followed. There was
not a grown man accompanying
it. Some lime afterward came Mr.
Oglesby leaning on the arm of Mr. J.
L. Haas. These were followed by a cor
poral's guard there might have been fif
teen in the "procession." They walked
slowly rtown the sidewalk. Their tones
wore inaudible. There was no enthusi
asm. Not a cheer, nor a banner, nor a
tramping of feet, nor a hurrying along of
the usual crowds upon such occasions,
nothing. Like at the burial of Sir John
More, "not a drum was heard nor a
funeral note," and in this melancholy
state the square was reached.
The speaker was introduced by Mr. J.
L. Haas. He stepped to the front of the
platform, a ljghted cigar in hand, and to
a man leas timid it would have been a
trying moment. Instead of a "sea of up
turned faces," there met his gaze the u
dience sturdy yeomen, the bone and
sioew, the stalwart forms, the bronzed
faces, the horny hands, the sturdy me
chanics, the thrifty housewife, the pro
fessions, the schools, the leaders of men,
the "glass of fashion and the mold of
iormr hardly. There were some 150
persons, counting mn, women and
children. A little later there may have
been more, perhaps a few hundred, and
many of them were democrats, curious to
know what new twist would be given to
the tariff and how the explanation would
Mr. Oglesby in his pleasant, entertain
ing way, told his hearers that he bad no
personal ambition to serve in appearing
before them. He wanted to encourage
the young men to do as their elders did
and stick by the republican party. He ad
verted to the formation of this govern
merit How the old world thought the
people were good enough, but not wise
enough to govern themselves, snd that
America hnd proven the contrary. lie
had nothing against any government in
the world, but he thought none of them
could compare with our own in progress
and splendor. While our government is
the strongest yet no one can tell who will
be our next president two years hence.
This nation belongs to nobody. It is in
the hands of the people as a whole.
He congratulated Rock Island county
and its people generally. He spoke
of Its prosperity, the value and beauty
of the Mississippi river, the advantages to
be gained by the Hennepin canal some
thing that had beeu fought for fifty years.
It was a thing that nobody ever thought
of doing and never would again. It would
cLeapen our iron and coal and other pro
ducts of that nature. He congratus
lated Murphy upon its success and men-
tioned the name of Gest in a half hearted
way. He launched out upon the beau
ties of the government under the republis
can party and asked was there any one
before him who could say there was any
thing wrong anywhere. And if not, why
should there be any change and why
should Gest be changed for a democrat?
For thirty years the republicans had been
running the government and are running
Glancing over the little gathering be
fore taking up the tariff, the speaker
must have felt either amused or mortified.
However, he made the best of the situa
tion, lie said when he was here once
before, he thought he would be obliged to
come again as the turnout at that time
was so small, but today it was the same.
The good republicans, he thought,. must
have all staid at home, and the few on
the ground were convinced of the truth
of the remark. It seems that good and
bad, with a few exceptions, hart all been
amusing themselves elsewhere.
Money, he said, did not grow in the
treasury, but had to be provided some
where for Uncle Sam to pay promptly alj
his employes, as he had been doing these
many years. ' It was no easy task to
manage all this, but somebody had to do
it and the republicans had always found
men who could undertake it and carry it
through. . The speaker here went into the
history of taxes in this country, the early
days of direct taxation during and after
'the war, the huuing of bonds and green
backs and other .matters already familiar
to the people. ' In fact, Mr. Oglesby said,
be came not to tell them what they dida't
know, but what be himself did know.
Two-thirds of the war debt bad been paid
and the rest was gradually diminishing.
At this point the audience must have been
somewhat surprised when told that the
war taxes were being lessened, and for
internal revenue the only things now
taxed were whisky and tobacco. But the
speaker was there to make an effort and
a little thin? like that was not to disturb
him. Mountains he could have swept
aside by a mere wave of the hand
The democrats are objecting to the
tariff, be said, when the fact is the con
sumer does not have to pay it. The for
eigner who sent his goods to this country
shouldered all the burden and conse
quently the higher the tax the more the
foreigner had to pay and the happier the
American consumer became. This dec
laration everybody must have expected.
That left out would have been like leav
ing the character of Hamlet out of the
play. It was the principal mission of Mr.
Oglesby. The people must have somes
thing to think about and if they have not
studied it here is something for them to
con over that although the money comes
out of their pockets and makes them
poorer that in the eyes of the republican
party they are just so much richer. It is
fs a beautiful theory and when dwelling
upon it the orator of the day grew fierce
and plausible by turns, as if some one
would have the temerity to dispute it. In
fact, Mr. Oglesby strained himself in get
ting this idea before the people. He grew
impetuous and almost shrieked out the
words, but he was brief very brief. It
wouldn't bear analysis.
The democrats favor a revenue tariff,
they say, and would put only a tix of 20
or 25 per cent on things in use, but that
is not enough. We can't afford that; we
must have more. Foreign countries at
that rate would swamp our people with
cheaper goods and we would be driven
out. The taxes on iron ore and metals
were dwelt upon and the young men were
loM to study ud this business and they
would get a $ 1 50 a day instead of 15
cents a day as in Europe, where they
would have to live on black bread and
green cucumbers and things. The idea
of having things cheaper was hooted at,
but, after all, European goods were
not cheaper and they never were cheap
er, be said. Mr. Oglesby must have
thought to himself this was inconsistent,
but he was not there to reconcile differences
of statements and so he plunged onward.
Protection, protection, became the bur
den of the story. Columns of figures
were kepf dancing before the eyes of bis
audience and these were wrought in
where it was thought they would do the
most good and ever and anon rose the
shrieking cry of protection higher taxes
and more of them taxes on anything
and everything- taxes, taxes, to make
the people rich. Half the people in this
country are farmers and the other half eat
up all farmers raise. We have the rich
est country in the world in mines and
minerals and gold and silver and
natural products and all is accounted for
because of protection. At the rate in
which the eloquent orator was galloping
on it was not thought safe to stop and
explain how free trade would steal all
these things from the bowels of the earth.
Then Mr. Oglesby explained to a doubt
ing audience that he himself was only a
iubu ouiy numan ana mat ne bad a
family and he knew what was what when
it comes to have them taken care of.
It was absurd he thought to
call the tariff a tsx when our
iupic tsu i raise or manufacture a
certain thing, that article is let in free
n ueu we can i raise enougn 01 any par
ticular thing, that thing we let in from
other countries upon the payment of a
small duly. And when anything is made
nere mat something dutiable enters into
its composition, the amount of that duty
is refunded to the manufacturer when the
article is sold abroad. Under such a
scheme as this, the consumer and not the
eastern manufacturer was supposed to get
the benefit! But anyway the speaker
contended that we didn't care anything
for foreign trade. It was the home mar
ket we were after. He said that last year
the farmers raised 490,000,000 bushels of
wheat and sent 90.000,000 of the quan
my aoroa t. This year there will be
390,000.000 bushtls and we will have
nothing to export.
The great domain of public lands being
all gone was referred to, the democratic
party being led on the tariff by southern
members was spoken of, and a some wt at
lengthy speech was closed with a politi
There is more Catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years doc'ors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies,
and by constantly failing to cure with
local treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a con
stitutional dif ,se, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney &
Co.. Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitu
tional cure on the market. It is taken

Coa-parUoita Made Bflweta Then
aad the rli-to-do of this Country
. The Union devotes considerable space
in an attempt to prove that because the
crowded cities of England and Scotland
contain many miserably poor people the
the cause is to be attributed to the free
trade principles of Great Britain. It
would attempt to strengthen this conclu
sion by quoting remarks of John Ruskin
and John I right. The large hearted,
philanthrophic men bewailed the poverty
to be found in all large cities and their
desire was to draw the attention of the
peopie 10 11. cut neuner itusKin nor
John Bright intimated in the slightest
degree that their poverty was the result
of free trade. Bad as the poor may be
in England now they were infinitely
worse under protection .
But in protected America is there no
poverty? Look at the misery and degra
dation caused by it in every large eity in
the United States. Is there not enough
room for pitiful tales of suffering. New
York has as much to contend against
with its poveity -stricken population, con
sidering its age and size, as London or
Paris. Blind legislation may have large
ly to do with - he poor of all nations, but
these human wails are not the result of
free trade priiiciples.
Fall River is a manufacturing town in
Massachusetts. It U singled out to show
how cheaply the people live and what
comfortable l.omes they can rent for a
small sum of money. It is so with ihc
manufacturing towns of the east general
ly. They are peopled chiefly by the fac
tory hands. Everything is cheap because
labor is cheap. The Union itself quotes
the remark that the mill hands live
there in good ntyle on less than an aver
age of fl a day. They will consume as
much food as if they lived anywhere else.
In what way can the farmers product
command a high price when factory
hands can live at such a rate? The state
ment was made that there was room
enough to give each inhabitant ten acres
of land. Certainly, or more if necessary.
Land in the east is worth comparatively
little. The people have deserted the
farms because they could not resi ze
enough to male both ends meet. They
moved farther west, first to one state and
tben to another, always getting nearer the
setting sun. They never seem to get a
chance to prosper. The government
seems to think them easy prey, and gen
erally they are. Tbeir consent is not
asked about taxation. Their remon
si ranee mat mey are overtaxed is of no
avail. Whiche ver way they turn they
confront the faces of the assessor and the
tax-gatherer. They mortgage their (arms
to help them over what they think a tern-
porary depression. Next year it is the
same and the yeats that follow are no
better, if not worse. Their remaining
possessions they dispose of and remove
with their family to a newer home. There
they are bettered for a time but the
paternal government thinks tbey are not
sufficiently "protected" and so where they
buy a hat or a coat, or shirts or shoes r.r
mittens they wonder why they can be so
dear. It is the same with the imple
ments they use on the farm all taxed so
high that they p-oan in misery. And the
products of the r land and their labor
tbey sell in the east so low that a man can
live there in good style on less than a
dollar a day.
Whatever comfort and happiness and
prosperity the people in this country en
joy they do so not through protection,
but in spite of it .
