Tbe consumer py ibe tax, and all the
aophiatry ot tbe McKinley. and Reeda,
and Oglesbja, sod Masons, and the high
uxers in general will not alter tbia
crushing fact. Those in favor of the
robber bill have two aaie of argumenU,or
rather the; have a different argument for
every new form of question. On tbe one
hand they tay the bigb tariff ia paid by
the foreigner; the next moment they con
cede that it ia paid by the consumer, and
that be muat submit in order that tbe in
dustriea of tbe country shall be en
couraged. Mr, Fred Lloyd, of the Arm of Lloyd A
Stewart, extensive dealers in genllemen'a
furnishing good, was asked by an An
ous man If tbe new tariff would bave any
effect upon tbeir trade.
"Yea," he answered, "it will. All tbe
goods we Import, such as Balbriggan ho
aery, silk handkerchiefs, silk umbrellas,
silk bose everything that we import will
have to be advanced tbe amount of
the tariff upon the article."
"You will, of course, put tbia extra
charge upon tbe goo.li?"
"Then everyone who buys these gooda
wi'l bave to pay so much more for them? '
"Undoubtedly. We will have to charge
that much more. We Cinnot avoid it."
Geo. Bennett, dealer and manufacturer
of gloves, was asked the same question
at was Mr. Lloyd, and he answered
in effect the same way.
'On ladies' fine kid gloves," be said,
"there will he an advance of $1.50 a doz
en. These are tbe imported (roods."

That would kill its hoped for effect. It was intended to b i handed around amongst the peo

heads in shame. They have asked the world to take them at their word and believe them to

BEN CABLE AND HIS CAMPAIGN-
Ben Cable is a young millionare whose wealth came to him by inheritance. His father
made the money in the railroad and mining business.
Democratic papers have been saying that Mr. Cable ha no railroad interests. If he has
not his stock has simply been transferred for election purposes. I le was born, bred and bap
tized a railroad monopolist, and he is a railroad man from the crown of his head to the soles
of his feet. Our halls of Congress contain now too many millionaires. Our railroads now
have too many champions there. The people want protection against the power of these
grinding corporations. Shall we vote the yoke upon our necks? What are all our labor or
ganizations for? What are our farmers' organizations for? For mutual protection. The
power of capital is so great that the ordinary individual would be crushed to atoms under its
heels. The only safety is in organization and the union of numbers.
What does the candidacy of Mr. Cable mean? What is his object in making this ter
rific scramble for a $5,000 office when he can make $40,000 year in a few minutes by clip
ping coupons? He has three objects in view:
1. His election would be a nassnort into the societv of the crowned hrad of Kurone
2. He would vote for Free Trade, which would double the value or purchasing pow er of
his bondi ana mortgages; and Dy destroying our home market would increase his railroad
business and lower the price of labor.
3. ne wouia De in a position 10 kiu ine nennepin anai. ana ne would do it as sure as
God let him live, as it conflicts with all that is his, and you never knew a Cable to be in favor
ot a thing that hurts him.
If all these things are true, how can he stand a ghost of a chance for election? All these
things are true, still he is a dangerous candidate. We w ill tell you why. Party spirit is fre
quently blind; three-fourths of the people vote their party ticket; the district is close; thi
is an off-year. Cable knows that he has nothing to recommend him but his money. He
sought the nomination expecting to buy his seat in Congress. He knew there would be some
Republican toadies vote for him because he is rich. He knew some disappointed applicants
tor omce were scattered nere and mere an over tne district, and tie would gain some votes
from that source, and he concluded that he could buy enough others to elect him. He now
has more men on his pay roll than he ever had before in his 1 fe. This district is full of hard
workers, with instructions to get votes for him any way to win. The district is divided into
what they call "blocks of five. He has one man in charge who has subordinates under him
Each crew is to secure every vote possible by any method whatever. Open, bare-faced brib
ery is common, the prices ranging Irom iM 5 to $200. Cable bt er and whisky are free in al
most all the saloons in Rock Island and Mohne and perhaps ail over the district. Enough

Rock Island about the same time. Over $Soo were left in the saloons of Rock Island and
Moline in two days last week. This will be repeated every few days until after election.
Are there enough decent people in this district to overcome this influence. These state
mentsare absolutely true and it any voter in the district doubts it let him come and investi

money to organize the district in "blocks of five," even if he were willing to, and he is not.
He must rely upon volunteers in each precinct to do legitimate campaign work for him
Every precinct should organize and see to it that the vote is cast. On a full vote we are safe.
for our decent and anti-monopolist Democratic vote will more than balance our losses. Mr
Gest would not, if he had the means, resort to bribery and debauchery for his election.

Tbe new tariff bill, known aa H. B,

and for other purpoaea."
I think tbere was never an act passed
for which tbe name "and for other pur

in its entiretv, from tbe first to tbe last
line, is a bill discriminating solely against
the poor man. It la an "act" tbat will,
probably be known before long as the
"trust act," for trusts and combinations
are really the only onea protected or ben
efited by it. In speaking of the discrim
ination by this act againat tbe working

Voorbeea made when I appeared before
tbe finance committee with other im

"Long" Jones, chairman of tbe repub
lican state central committee, has been
caught in one of hit dirty schemes. He
sent the following letter to tbe Moline
Republican, which was published in that
Chicago. Oct. 14. 1890.
Dear Sir: Democratic orators and
newspapers are seeking to create the im
pression tbat there la, or is to be, a sharp
rise in prices of merchandise on account
of the passage of ibe new tariff law.
Interview one or more of your leading
merchants at once and see if they will not
say for publicati n in your reading col
uruos, or as a heading for an advertise
ment tbat tbere is no rise in prices on ac
count of tbe new law.
We believe tbat tbe facts justify such
ai assertion, and know that leading
eastern merchants are advertising in this
wy. Tours truly, A. M. Jokes,
Go, Mr. Jones says, and wheedle some
of yonr merchants into telling a down
right lie. Have the lie printed. Make it
say that so and so believes there will be
no rise is prices This will help ti blind
the eyes of tbe people until after election
at least. It must be done or we are lost.
We cannot stand tbe bard facts staring as
in tbe face. Our fale arguments are
beaten whichever way we turn. Every
body is thinking and talking about this
tariff. We must lie about it. Get some
of your merchants to perjure themselves
and it may do something to help us out.
What if we have to take it all bark after
election? It don't matter. It will
be too late tben for anybody
to expose us. It is tbe present terrible
slate of affairs we must tide over. Farm
ers are asking us questions about taxing
tbeir binding twine, their farming imple
ments, tbeir household goods, their
clothing- how can we answer tbemT
Everybody is asking the same questions
as the farmer, except our own people. and
tbey must keep quiet for the good of tbe
party. It is the worst crisis we were ever
in. As the winter sets in and tbe price
of everything goes up, what can we say
or do? You must go to your merchants
those of our political faith and ex
plain matters to them. Explain tbat we
are simply doing it to help ourselves out.
Yes, we know, it is rather a desperate
thing to do to ask a man to lend his
name to such a falsehood, but be can
explain afterwards that he was deceived,
and did not exactly understand tbe con
dilion of affairs. Anyway it must be done
or our prospects are forever lost.
Surh is the appeal that "Long" Jones
is making throughout the state. Is there
an hooet man anywhere that will sub
mil to such infamous work?
