of tbe democratic slate central committee.

band tbe bull begun 611 wi,n People
from all over the country. They were
there from Aledo, Pre-emption. Reynolds
and evtrl neighboring towns, but the
most notable part of the attendance was
the number of erey-haired farmers, men
who have been pioneers of the state of
Illinois and men who should know
wlielber their conditions will or will not
be bettered by an addition to the tariff.
and to hear Ibe comments or these same
Be-jtlemen after the meeting, iwas
eaailv seen that Mr. Phelps had struck
the riabl chord. It was Mr Ph-ilps' first

they were for a tariff 'or revenue only
and that tariff to be imposed on the lux
unes and not upon the necessaries of
life, that ail this country needed w

and it was uujnst and unconstitutional to
exact one cent more from the people,
that protection is an injury to everyone
except the ow ner oi the raw rra'enal
that our American industries are do
longer infant industries; that three rail
lions of dol!irs were recently expended
on an iron mine h-fore one pound of ore
was extracted. He then showed that i
was American genius and not the tariff
that had given us cheaper goods, and
that if we were not hampered by this
tariff we would be the leading comroer
cial nation of the world. He showed
that England paid better wages in com
partaon to the number of ueople to
the gqimrc mile, and that it we
had a tmtbel of wheat or other
produce thht we bad to sell
it in the murkets of the world, but if we
wished to bu; we were compelled to buy
at one certain place, and claimed that if
we bad to sell our goods in the markets
of the world and at their prices, we
should have the right t i purchase the
goods we nee 'ed from the markets of the
world. Theu he told how and on wnat

for maoy years editor of the Davenport
Oatelte, and for twenty years postmaster
at Davenport, a man who in tbe time of hi
e Utorial vigor, was one of the most fore
inotl aod most pronounced republicans
in the stateof Iowa, but whobai been con
verted to tbe democratic idea of the tar

enport Saturday night. Judge Nathaniel
French, another republican of tbe old
stock, who could not sustain tbe oppres
sions and iniquities of the so-called pro
tective policy, presided, and introduced
the speaker of the evening. In opening
bis address Mr. Russell reviewed briefly
and concisely his own record as a repub

It came to occupy groun.l to which he
could not conscientiously follow it. He
dwtlt briefly upon his action, and then
passed to the issues of the day, and de
voted himself chiefly to the tariff. The
- Democrat in reporting it said:
Tben he proceeded in a manner strik
ingly lucid and comprehensible, lo state
the case as it stands; the existence of
numerous industries with their various
products, and the existence of a necess
ity of exchange of these products with
other people, manufacturers, growers,
producers of oirer goods. The argui
ments of the republicans to the farmers
to tbe fleet that the tariff will build up
home industries and home markets, were
punctured with the simple statement of
fact thv.t farms have depreciated tj 25
p?T nt of their value 20 years ago un
der the very walls of the factories they
have been taxed to maintain. Henry
Wilson, of Pleaant Valley township. was
quoted to the effect that agricultural land
there, iven in favored Scott county, anils
for a great deal less than 20 years ago.
And ail this depreciation occurred under
a protertlve tariff. During 30 years of
protection, he cited (Utistics to prove,

Reliable statistics show mat less tban 20

tariff. Instead of that this McKinley bill
puts on a tariff averaging 47 per cent.
Tbe talk of need of protection for Amer

An honest, upright and conscientious
citizen, of character unquestioned in his
own borne, and Tor fair dealing a pattern
and an example, Mr. Ben. T. Cable haa
been made the mark for the moat scur
rilous and libelous assaults that could be
conceived In the minds ot a wicked and
desperate enemy. The circular we print
today, which contains the most' wicked
lies that could be invented, was printed
as a republican campaign document, and
has been circulated broadcast over this
county and in every county of this con
gressional district excepting Rock Island
(Mr. Cables home), where it would not
do to give publicity to such vile and stu
pendous falsehoods. Upon getting hold
of this libelous circular it is promptly
published in the Rock Island Demo
cratic newspayers that the voters of that
county may see the low depths tbe
Ueslites bave descended to, and every
villainoua lie is na led. and tbe traducers
held up to the scorn their infamy de
serves. The document, as every one can
see, has no name or mark to show its
propagators, nothing to show who are
responsible for its wicked untruths. If
truthful in any secse, its inventors would
bave been too glad to attach some signas
ture to give it character and waiiibt
among voters. Its anonymous nature
shows that Its statements are falsehoods.

A New York farmer who was always
a believer in free trade had a hen which
would not lay eggs. He tried all tbe
patent medicines which were advertised
in bis paper, bnt to no avail. Tbe hen
would not lay. Matters went on thus
until the morning ot Oct. 6 dawned
bright and clear. Tbe farmer went to
his hen coop, when imagine bis surprise
to find that bis ben bad laid seventeen
eggs. He was puzzled to account for it
until he bethought himself that on thai
day the McKinley law went into force.
The farmer is now a good protectionist.

Mr. Clements, at Hamilton, last
Friday told his hearers thai the women
of this country are selling f 123.000.000
worth of milk every year, aod "were it
not for tbe tariff ibis could not be done,"
and that on butter aod eggs the figures
were equally high. He said that former
ly all ot this was thrown away, bat now
it could all be saved, and added to the
farmer's profits. As long as this could
be done it made no difference to tbe
masses bow high the tariff is. And Mr
Gest, tbe man who never failed to vote
against the interests of Illinois, cor-
roborated every assertion made by
Mr. Clements. Voters, what do you
think of such talk? Are we represented
by a sane man or a manikin? We have
milk, butter and eggs for exporting and
we are anxious for other countries to
come and relieve us of our surplus. How
can a tariff, be it ever so high, increase
tbe price of these products a scintilla? A
wooden Indian would bt an improve
ment over a congressman who talks in
sucb a manner to bis constituents. Give
Ben T. Cable your vote on election dsy.
and if be does not turn out to be an im

be the first lo demand his retirement.

A Macomb dispatch to tbe St. Louis
Republic on the 24th says:
Congressman Gest's speech bere last
night is the butt of ridicule of tbe town
today. After vainly assaying to whip in
many influential republican bolters, the
machine sent for Qest and Attorney-Genera!
Hunt to make speeches. Tbe opera
house was crowded, but Gest so wearied
bis audience by bis lame defence ot Reed
Ism and McKinleyism. that his hearers
riled out by squads and platoons. Alex
McLean, a leading republican, arose and
personally appealed to the audience to
bear Gest ont. but the exodus continued
until but few of tbe faithful were left.
An open revolt against Gest in Macomb
is causing bim some uneasiness. Repub
licans whose fealty bas never before
swerved are openly working for Ben Ca
ble, tbe democratic nominee, and If ap
pearances are not deceiving a democrat
will represent the Eleventh Illinois dis
trict in the next congress.

Has any one beard ot any manufao
turer increasing tbe wages of his men
since the McKirl-y bill passed? Who is

admiring multitudes may gate on bim aa
tbe greatest wonder of the nineteenth
century. We know that tbe price of
goods of a!l kinds bas been in
creased. We know that every one who
uses the products of American mannfac
turers pays more for them. We know
that the manufacturers get tbe money.
We know thai the republican partv de
clared that under these circumstances tbe
manufacturers would pay higher wage .
Wby don't they do it? Tbe reason is that
tbey are not in business for charitable
purposes. If 'he law enables tbe in to
make more money they put it in ibeir
pockets. Wby should tbey divide it with
their men or any one else? It is absurd to
expect tbem to do so. Indianapolis

"Mr. Cable," in the language of Oest's
agonized circular appeal to the voters of
the district, "would vote for free trade,
which would double the value or pur
chasing power of bis bonds and mort
gages." If free trade would double the
value of bonds and mortgages, such re
publican statesmen and millionaires as
Cannon, Sawyer. Sherman. Ingalls. Alli
son and Stanford would tumble over each
other ln their eagerness to Vote for it.

John "Eh" Fleming says that he wc old

treasurer were it offered to him ln rit
ing. and the salary were double what the
board of supervisors would sllow. Be
said nothing about the proposal being
presented on a silver plate, but that f ol
lows aa a matter of course. Tbe legal
allowance should not be a drawback to
Eli's ambition, as- there are ways of re
coupment for services which arc gener
ally known to the experienced.
Fleming says he "must bave left, a
sore spot on tbe democratic body poli ic
which arterwards raised a boil," to ti se
his own clastic phrase. Nut exactly. Eiit
he left once upon a lime a sore spot up n
tbe democratic body politic which afw r-
ards raised a howl. And about it t le
reoublicans were not very bilarioi s.
That was a sad mistake for two naug Y
ty democrats to suppose that Eli's politi
co convictions were for sale, as Fleming
saya they did. Jim Fisk used to say tht.t
every man has a price. It will now be
the worry of this community for some
little time to find out tbe quiet market
quotations ot this much injured man. It
was a vulgar method of approaching hiei

four free trade representatives, and there
