The Union says that became tbe A rods
endeavors to show the fraud imposed
upon dealers and consumers of tobacco
by the MeKiuley bill that it is trying ''to
excite the hostility of cigar makers to
Mr. Gest." Why the hostili y of cigar
makers, particularly? Why not take the
case of sugar, for instance, vbicb is used
by almost everybody in one form or
another, or almost any other article?
Cigarmakers and tobacco cor sumers com
pose one class only. All oi her clauses are
equally as badly off.
The Virion, stili trying t throw dust
iu the eyes of iu readers, avjids the main
question and tries to smother the truth by
talking about domestic tobacco, knowing
that domestic tobacco cuts a very small
figure in the trade, as an hole. Let us
make the matter as concise ts possible.
L nder the old tariff a cigar costing in
Havana f 40 a thousand pai 1 a duty of
25 per cent ad valorem and 4 2.50 a pound
when imported into this country. Cigars
vary in weight from twelve to eighteen
pounds per thousand. Ttking fifteen
pounds as a fair average ' he cigars will
then cost :

AN jK?r cent Mil valnre-n 10 U
Fiflfen puuiiit at f-i 50 87 Ml
Init-roal rL-rviiue lax 3(0
The new scale is 25perceit. ad valorem
and $ 4.50 per pound. The same cigars
will then cost:

H-rcenl ad valorem
Ktfli-eii pound al $l.nO
lim-nial rcvvmie tax
. 40 00
. 10 00
. ti" 50
Total J ) 50
The difference is '!0 on a thousand or
three cents on each cigar. Owing to close
competition cigars costing about $90 a
thousand under the old rati; were retailed
at ten cents. Now, the pr ce going up to
$10, the dealers will sell tbese cigars at
retail for fifteen cents apie e.
But even then the strry in not all
told. Under the old law Fey West, New
York and other manufacturers in the
United States paid a duly of 35 cents per
pound on imported Havai a leaf tobacco
uns'emmned. It takes i.bout twenty
four pounds to make a thousand cigars.
Under tbe old tariff the duty was: Twen
ty-four pounds at 35 cents. $3.40. plus
$3 internal revenue tax, or ft 1.40 per
thousand cigars. The McKinley bill fixes
the duty on unstemmed imported tobacco
at $2 a pound, which makes the follow
ing showing: Twenty-foi r pounds at f2
a pound, equals $48, plus $3 internal
revenue tax, or $51 in a)-. The conse
queuce of ibis is that it will be to the in
terests of tbe dealers to push the impor
ted cig-ir because they ran make more
money by so doing. S.i that the McKin
ley hill makes the com inner pay five
cents more on each HavAni cigar, whether
imported or domestic, but there is an ad
vance of one cent a cigar made in a do
mestic factory over a cigar made in Cu
ba and imported into this country.
This is an enormous ai d an unreason
able burden Itced upon Ihe hundreds of
thousands ot men to whom cigars are a
necessity rather than a luxury, so that the
aturbl effect of the bill must be to close
p. sooner or liter, all tie leading cigar
manufacturers not only iti Key West, but
in this country as well, throwing many
thousands of American workmen, who
e so wisely protected by this humane
government, out of employment. But
the Union talks about t Lie creat benefit
that will accrue to tbe dealers on tbe do
mestic asticle. But the domestic article
is confined to the product of a few farm
ers in tbe Connecticut river valley, and a
few more in Kentucky. Virginia and
'ennaylvania. The kind of mateiial
these people raise for th manufacture of
cigars is sometimes riign fiid by the name
of tobacco, but is more u sef ul for destroy
ing insects on plants and flowers than for
any other purpose. It was never intend
ed to be smoked in cigars bv anvbodv
who has any taste for tonacco or any
knowledge of what the article is.
Only a little while ago the Vnin was
telling with much gusto that the country
had been blessed by free sugar, knowing
it was not true; now it takes up domestic
tobacco to show how much the interests
of the American people are cared for.

was taken from him after twenty years of
faithful service politics. Congressman
Gest has bis finger in that pie. It was in
deference to bis idea that Brennan was
removed, and now it i.-i in pursuance with
little piece of strategy planned by him
that the vacancy is rot filled by forma'
appointment. There are quite a number
of applicants for the position and each
baa been promised ti e place on certun
conditions, but all will likely be held off
nntil after election. The most sensible
solution that the may r can make of the
question as regards tje best interests of
the public is to appoint Mr. Louis Ohl-
weiler, whom be is ni w using to bold the
others in suspense, a ad be done with It.

Holy Horror at Those W'trkrd Urn.
The Union and its friends are now
working through the agonies of a virs
tuous spasm. They are all so truly good
that the ways of others aeem to affect
them. They walk bo straight that they
are beginning to lean over backwards. It
is a dangerous position, but periodical
use has made them tolerably expert. They
see a mote in the eye of another, but the
beam in their own is never discernible.
Spies are on the scent to find out
whether tbe democrats are using any
money or giving any aid or encourage
ment to the voters. Tbe shadow of a
fact is as good as a mountain of evi
dence. And when these keen scented
hounds have their noses to the ground
for prey, their owners and bosses are
walking the devil walk around the stump
a lively manner. Money is poured
out where il will do the most good. No
man who is in favor ot high taxes
need want for ,a dollar as lone
as the republican fund holds out, and that
it will hold out as 1 ng as the fat can lie
fried, goes without sayiug. Uncle Sam s
letter carriers, too, are pressed into the
service in various way?. A wink of the
boss is as good as a formal document.
There is work to be none. Every little
helps. If a carrier cannot get time to go
into the campaign regulaily, there are
other tbinss he can attend to. Even
those serve who only stand and wait.
Thirsty workmen crave for beet. The
'growlei" is empty and must be fi led.
Who so ready, so willing and all the time
so immaculate as tbe agents of Uncle
Sam? It may be questionable conduct,
but it is a veritable fact. The duties of
letter carrier may not be so onerous as
to wear him out. Why not muzzle the
'growlei" to htlp the boys along? And
yet their right hand knows not what the
left hand does.
What virtuous fellows those bosses are,
to be sure.
CAX'T liAMILK THE TRUTH.
The Pitiable I'oadiltoa of the Organ
oa Mailer Poliilral.
Once more it is necessary to say that
the Union cannot tell the truth. In the
near future this assertion may need repe
tition. Here is an instance which ap
peared in Sunday's issue:
Tedy Kelly, of savory reputation, has
been around several nights boasting of
aving struck the democrats for !r'50 more
money than he ever before bad at one
ime in his life.
The amount of truth there is in that
statement may be found after the follows
ing facts are considered:
Whatever transgressions Ktl'y may
have b.'.n guilty of in the past, he is now
and hr been for some time, a quiet, in
tensive young man. He has not been
around several nights boasting that be
had struck the democrats for $50. lie
had not been around one ni-lit even mak-
ng that statement. He did not strike
he democrats for $50 nor any other
amount. He did not receive $50 from
the democrats, nor never said that be
did. As to that sum beins more than he
ever had at one time before in his life it
matters not. He had until recently been
receiving $55 a month foremjl yuient at
the bridge, until he became injured and
was obliged to relinquish it.
The case of Kiily amounts to nothing.
Kelly can tell any tales that bis fancy may
dictate or that will be received with open
mouth by gaping news gatherers for the
Union. He is mentioned here to show
how destitute of truth the Union is in al!
matters, great and small. The trail of the
erpent is over everything it touches.

The ladies of tbe Industrial Relief s

week, some good work for the por and

been for several mnnths caring for Mora

with blindness. F.nally it was deter

Miss Lita Wil. ox accompanied her to
Chicago, wherj shj was ljft, with good
prospects of coming home wLh restored

was roused in bjhalf of Minnie Junk, a
yoang girl of fifteen years, who had been
arrested and sent to the A-mory on
charge of petty thefts at Mr. J. H. Wil
son's; they f-.lt that something
ought t be done to save ber t3 a better
life, so Mrs. Sudlow and Mr. C. W
Wilcox went Friday afternoon to see her
at the Armory; she aeem d heart broken
and repentant; the ladies' sympathy went
out to the po-ir untaught child. Feeling
assured that if christian women would
not extend a hanl to Bave tcr, she would
indeed be hist, Mrs. Wilcox consented
to take her to her home to help her to
become agood won. an. Certainly this end
is worth an effort, an J great cred.t is due

When the amusement loving public of
Rock Island and Moline and those of
Davenport -who always patronize our
popular place of amusemnt on notable
occasions, see Harper's- theatre on the
event of its reopening next Thursday
night at tbe time of tbe visit to Rock
Island of tbe famous California Comic
Opera company in "Said Pasha." changes
in the appearance of our play house will
be found which the regular patrons of the
theatre would hardly have thought possi
ble. The theatre always was attractive
in its interior, yet it has been improved
and beautified in tbe changes that have
recently been rnsde that the old appear
ance is no longer recognizable. Times
change and we change with them, is tbe
only explanation that can be given for the
To begin with, six loges have been
put in in front in conform ty with the de
signs furnished by Architect Scbureman.
Tbe lower loges on either side are double
while there is a single one on each side
above. This work was done by Collins
Bros. Throughout tbe houte many re
pairs have been made, the seats all put in
order, an entirely new beating apparatus
provided, and on the stage new flies and
paraphernalia for operating tbe scenes.
Then too, Davis & Co. have wired the
house for illumination by electricity en
tirely. So much in brief for what has
been done in the interests of public com
fort. What changes have been male
with a view to delighting the
eyes of the theatre patrons are mo e
noticeable, . and will if anything
be more heartily appreciated. For sev-
era weeks Mr. J. U. Buss, of the Colum
bus and Haymarket theatres in Chicago,
with his assistant, S. T. Lewis, has been
conducting the decorative work. The
entire body of the house, with the ex
ception of the balconv, has been finished
in lovely terra c otta, of different shades,
enriched with bronze, crimson, copper
and fire. Over tbe procenium arch ap
pears a beautiful fancy decorative pan
el, a harvest scene witb fliwerj on either
side. A gorgeous new curtain, on
which is painted a Swiss scene,
surrounded with rich bowers and satins
has been provided, while all the scenes
have been repainted. The French fancy
interior is finished with satin and gold
terracotta: the chamber, garden, land
scape ar,d horizon scenes are all new.
The loires have been hung with rich
Irapery by Clemann & Silzwinn. the
same hrm having recarpeted the bouse
throughout. The ha'U have oeen re
pspered by the Adams company, and, in
act, nothing has been neglected to add
to the comfort and eDl iment of the pa-
rons of our cozy theatre.
