WELLS OX POVERTY.
He Clearly; rsecBihe Mote ! ta. Bye
fBUBrtllirr H.t C"t ee the
Bran Tfcat Hrntm tu HI. Owi.
P. stmaftler WI!s has a.ldressed a
lengthy communication t the Fto-.
wherein be wishes to prove that because
EdkIsdiI followed tie principles of free
trade there were, as consequence, msjiy
poor la that country. When Mr. Wells
dealt wilb this question before, be ob
jected to the A ro oi using figures to prore
the fallacy of bis position. Perbaps it
was not neceawy. Everybody giving
tUe question a little attention can procure
the figures for himself.
Because Booth, of the salvation array,
baa a scheme on band by which the suf
ferings of the poor in the slums of Lon
don and elsewhere may be lessened, that
of itself has no bearing upon the ques
tion of free trade or protection or upon
any other economic question. The poor
there need relief as tbey do everywhere,
and if Mr. Booth can accomplish goo J it
Is well. But in what manner do the ac
tions of this tnan point to the theory of
free tradeT Will Mr. Wells crplaint
There are many poor in England. That
is granted. Nor is it necessary to repeat
it. But why sing this doleful soijg with
out pointing out the cause? Mr. Wells
is a very estimable gentleman and would
not, it is presumed, state a thing be did
not think to be true. But bis thoughts
cannot be accepted as evidence in this
maUsr. Tbey would not be admitted in
a court of law, except as an export, and
it la not known that Mr. Wells baa any
peculiar knowledge of economic ques
tiona not possessed by the world generally.
If he has, the people stand ready for
enlightment Reiteration on bis part will
not stand for a fact. Since Mr. Welle
baa entered the lists as an exponent of
high taxes let bim present to the world
the figures of his faith not the sympathy
of bia heart There are too many sugar
coated morsels doing service as facta al
But why loves Mr. Wells to go to
England to have a peep at poverty? Was
there nothing here to enlist his sympa
thetic nature? Up and down tbia broad
land could he find nothing to redress?
Sees he do pallid cheek from hunger, n
shrunken form wrapped in rags? Are
there no wails for bread from children
clinging to a motbet's tattered gown; no
idle thousands thronging the streets of our
Urge cities; no desperate deeds done
that bread may be secured? Can be aee
no poverty in its multitudinous forms dai
ly atalking through this broad, bright
land which be ao justly extols? And yet
thiaia protected America! Thia ia the
land of which its inhabitanta are com
pelled by law to aell their goods in the
cbeapeat market and buy in the dearest
J-iplaln tbia, Mr. Wells. And do
not say that we have only to wait and
matters will adjust themselves. We have
waited for thirty years and more, and
still ia hope our only comfort, added to
our trust in the Almighty that he will
not ate a people wronged for eternity
Thia may border on the pathetic, but it
also strike) at the truth.
The wagea of working men in tbia
country are higher because of superior in
telligence, the ute of machinery and to
our natural conditions. And In a greater
degree than all the others our workmen
protect themselves by intelligent organi
sation. To thia is due ninety five per
cent of the increased rate of wagea. In
what inatance has the McKiuley bill in
creased wagea? Has there been any sign
that It will do ao? On the contrary, ia
the teatimony not daily coming in to the
contrary? How ia It that in the highly
protected atate of Pennsylvania the
workmen are paid less than in any other
state in the union? The miners there can
acarctly live. But the protected bosses
In that atate can aend hundreds of thous
ands of dollars into different parta of the
country for campaign purposes.
True, we have reformers in this coun
try doing what they can. They may
work in a different groove from Mr.
Booth, but their tendency is the same
to relieve the poor. We have Bellamy
nd Henry George and others with
theories which startle tbs worlV. We
must wait to aee their promised effect.
In the meantime, though, we have people
yourself among the number with still
more startling theoriea that tell ua the
more we are taxed the richer we become,
and while trusting in providence we are
hampered with facU that convince ua to
Tou may be honest, Mr. Wells, and
your discoveries In England are very
touching, but what we want la facta
hard, Oradgrlnd facta, before the doubt
ing Thomas in ua can be made to be
lieve. The Theatre.
It was an audience while failing to
manifest ila appreciation ot the high or
der of merit of the presentation, was no
teas richly entertained bv Miss Abbie Cur
ringion and her company at Harper'a
ineaire last evening. Tbe charming and
gifted prima donna appeared in a double
and extremely varied grand opera bill,
giving first two acta in costume, of Flo
tow a "Martha" and the garden scene
from the famous "Faust." Either as
"Lady Henrietta" in the first part or as
"Margberita" later, the lady gave an al
moat perfect interpretation of the noble
spheres of deacriptive muaic, ber voice
being not only one of natural charm but
evincing much careful culture.
Miss Carrington is surrounded
by an array of vocal artists, includ

nd N. Basil Ptetaon, basio: with Mr.
Edwin M. Sbonert, piano soloist and

audience with a number of difficult selec

It is to be regretted that Manager Mont

The Oeat people cannot keep down the

glass trust went into operation today in
every city having window glass bouse
west oi the Alleghanies. and tbe price of
the product waa at once advanced S Der

Klass is higher today than it has been for
years, and aa all the factories are now in
the combine except one small concern at
Oelina. Ohio, there la no prospect of any
reduction, as an competition baa been
destroyed. The seven glass factories in
tbia city have all become a part of the
giant combination, and beginning today
the entire product will be sold through
tbe central agency in Chicago. Once a

of sales, and all the factories will share

Cable far the Writ
Tbe Keokuk Conttiiution says: The
people of the Eleventh Illinois congres
sional district are fortunate in that Ben
T. Cable is a candidate for congress. He
is man who possesses those qualities of
statesmanship which will place him in
tbe front rank at Washington. Gest is a
light weight, and is no more fitted to re
present one of tbe most important con
gressional districts of Illinois, thsn an
infant would be. The time has come
when tbe west must send its strong men
to Washington. Calle ia one of them.
He will represent the west and fight for
our interests, instead of serving aa a
fawning tool for the mill bosses of tbe
east. Mr. Cable talks to the point. He
speaks bia sentiments freely, and demon
stratea that be gives close attention to
problems of the hour.
It quotes several sections of Mr. Ca
ble a letter, and continues:
Tbe man who cannot endoise tbeae
sentiments, does not deserve to enjoy tbe
privilege of American citsenship, and
me iioeriy wLicn waa secured to us ny
the patriotism ot the men of tbe revolu
Kt Try Moaaethtag Kluc.
The charge that Mr. Cable ia a dude
and devoid of brains having been proven
groundless, republican papers are now
onatng uuit because be is too plain look
lug, claiming (bat "no one would ever
pick him out for a cotgressman," etc.
These fellows are ind.ed bard to t lease.
We suppose tbey see in Mr- Gest all that
ia rt quired to make a congressman, but
wltn two terms in that body he has ut
terly failed to prove that he baa a single
requisite for tbe place. Aa a lawyer be
got along first rate by collecting fees for
work he never performed and in congress
he continues to do the same thing. If be
sqouIiI be given a third term for bis good
iooks, a ciomiei a dummy would do just
as well. Vole for Ben T. Cable and
elect a man who will represent Illinois
and not England. Hancock Pilot.
The man who goes to the tailor to buy
a sun oi domes, or to the dry goods
store to buy a carpet, or to tbe hardware
store to buy a atove or anvthing else, will
wish from tbe bottom of his heart and
from tbe depths of bis pocket-book that
tbe foreigner really did pay tbe tax. He
will find that the price of these articles
has been enormously advanced by tbe
auues or tbe McKmley tariff bill, which,
though paid originally by the importer,
are added by bim to tbe price at which be
sells tbe goods, and ultimately collected
from conaumers like himself. Remember
when you come to cast vour ballot thia
fail, that Congressman Gest voted to
place this burden upon you. If yon ap
prove of such robbery, vote to return
bim; if not. vote for Ben Cab'e wbo op
poses such laws. Monmouth Journal.

Ab Opponent's Remarks on Cable's
A Credit te the Caaaaaaaltr la Wl.lek
he Llvesi aaj Well mate the (State aaa
The Chicago Journal is not only the
oldest newspaper In that city, but it it al
ways the most staunch and unswerving
republican. From that position it has
never deviated. When Mr. Cable was
nominated for congress the Journal on
Tuesday. August 13, editorially said:
It is said that Mr. Benjamin T. Cable.
of Rock Island, a younger member of tbe
railroad Cable family, has magnificent
library, ia an enthusiastic collector of the
beat literature, including rare be oka, that
he haa all the British claeaics, and that bis
Shakspearean collection especially is very
ample and very floe. He has a copy of
tne nrst American edition or Burns, con
taining tho autograph of George Wash
ington. His library is "peculiarly rich in
the best American authors." He haa
"Life of Christ" ia French, done witb a
pen on vellum and richly illustrated a
work some 600 years old.
A msn with such intelligence and tai tea
ia a credit to the community in which he
lives, to the state and to the west, which
ia aupposed at the east to be without cul
ture. Mere wealth doea not induce a nian
to make such purchases as those dass
cribed. Tbe man must have had origin
ally a bias toward intellectual pursu la,
and he muBt have furnished his mind with
improvements and embellishments tliat
made it a choicer tenant of tbe corporeal
frame that it inhabits.
This gentleman, so well nurtured m n
tally, so gifted with a rare taste and Ad
miration for the qest things In literals re,
a lover of Sbakspeare and things Sbuk
spcarean, haa been nominated by the
democrats for congress in the district
where be lives! It is a thing for wonderl
Democrats do not nominate such men for
office except under peculiar circumstt n
cea. There is probably a greater propor
tion of intelligent democrats in such a
district as that ii which Mr. Cable ia tbe
democratic candidate for congresa than
in a Chicago district Here the avenge
democrat would call Mr. Cable a "liter
ary dood." meaning "dude." and would
scorn such a candidate. But it ia doubt
less different in the districts outside of
Chicago. Tbe only thing about tbe
wb le matter of importance is thai air.
Cable, wilb hia intelligence, tastes and
culture, should be a republican. He t as
none of tbe aymptoo.8 of a democrat.
