Lima, O., Aug. M. The Ohio Repub
lican campaign was opened here Saturday
with a meeting at which it is estimated
that 30,000 persons were present. Major
J McKinley was the speaker and it looked
as mougn everybody went to hear what
he had to say. The town was gayly deco
rated, especially the little house in which
the major was born. At the intersection
of Mill and Furnace streets a handsome
arch was erected constructed entirely of
American tin produced by American
manufacturers and mechanics. Among
the decorations was a life-sized tin soldier,
a tin cannon, stars and shields, all con
structed of tin, and a handsome portrait
of McKiuley inclosed in a frame of Amer
ican tin. The beautiful arch with its
adornments attracted marked attention,
and was surrounded froui early morn
with crowds admiring its construction
and the striking object lesson it conveyed.
A Military and Industrial Parade.
The speaker was escorted to the place of
speaking by a parade of military and civil
organizations and an industrial procession
which McKinley reviewed from the llene
dict residence. Among the banners cur
ried was one bearing the motto "The Tin
Soldier Will Defeat the Butler Mascot."
Upon beginning his address Major Mc
Kinley first reviewed the platforms of the
two parties and declared that the Demo
crats were for a revenue tariff and the Re
publicans for a protective tariff; the Dem
ocrats for free silver and a debased dollar
and the Republicans for an honest doller
worth the same, of whatever it is com
posed. Of the tariff he said: "As a means
of raising revenue a revenue tariff is nut
as certain and reliable as a protective tar
iff. The latter has never failed in time of
peace, no matter how great the expendi
tures, to supply the revenue required, aud
has never failed bux three times, and then
in war to, pi-ovide the enormous revenue
required for the public service.
Is Protection a Burden?
'"N"'. w, if protection is a burden upon the
people, we should find some manifestation
of it somewhere. We have been living
under it for thirty years. Where does the
burden rest? The great mass of the peo
ple of our country were never so well off
as they are today. They are better off than
the rest of mankind. There never were so
many men in this country who owued
their own homes as there are today. Thera
never were so many workmen who had ac
cumulations in the savings banks of tLe
country as th:re are today. There never
were so many comforts, refinements, and
educated homes as there are in this coun
try today. No nation of the world can
present such a picture of progress, pros
perity, and ilenty. Measured by its user
fulness in the development of the country,
the protective tariff is again unfailing.
No nation in the world has reached such a
degree of development as we have attained
in the last thirty years."
Effect of the New Law.
Turning to the effect of the new law, he
said it had been in operation for ni e
months. Statistics show that during that
time the total value of imports of merchan
dise was f630,2u0,000. During the corre
fcponding pariod of 1S90 the total value of
imports of merchandise was ?o9S.7Gy,305.
There were therefore imported during the
nine months of 1891, under the new tariff
law, $31,438,100 more than in the corre
sponding period of 190, under the opera
tion of the old law. During the nine
months ended June 30, ,891, the foreign
goods admitted free of duty were valued
at $295,993.obo. During the nine months
ended June 30, IKK), the value of free im
ports was an3,933.73 an increase of free
Importations, In favor of the new law, of
$86,979,75)2 Referring to reciprocity lie
said that it'd'd not antagonize protection,
as it was based npon those imports which
were on the free list.
Something About Mortgages.
Continuing he sajd: "It is also said that
protective tariffs have increased the mort
gages of the country. This is an idle and
absurd statement. Let me remind you
that mortgages are not always an evi
dence of poverty. They are much oftentr
the best evidences of prosperity. I admit
that mortgages given for living expenses,
fpr grocery bills, for taxes, etc, do give
evidence of the poverty of the mortgageor.
But if a workman in this city.having accu
mulated $1,000, concludes he wants to by
a borne, and finding one which will cost
him $3,000, $1,000 in cash and gives a mort
gage for the remainder of the purchase
money, that mortgage is not an evidence
of poverty. It is the strongest evidence
of the thrift and prosperity of the niort
gageor. Take the iarmer having 160 acres
of land who wants to add 100 more acres
to his farm. He has sufficient accumula
lations to enable him to mike the first
payment and purchases the adjoining
land, giving a mortgage for the remaining
payments. That does not mean that he is
distressed and in poverty. It means that
he is getting on that he' has faith in him
self and the future."

THE CAMPAIGN IN IOWA.
Governor Boies Begins Work at Chero
kee Protection Bis Theme.
Cherokee, la., Aug. at The Demo
oatic state campaign was opened here
Saturday Governor Boies in a two hours'
speech to a great audience composed of
thousands of people from the country, as
well as thf citizens of the town. He de
voted a great deal of his speech to the pro
hibition law, which he declared to be a
failure in over half the state. Coming to
the tariff question, he said it was "a serious
mistake for any elector to reach the con
clusion that this subject of taxation is oue
he cannot understand. All can do so if
they will take the pains to inform them
selves. Concisely stated, a tariff is a tax
which our government levies on merchan
dise produced iu other countries and
brought here for sale. -
Mast Be Paid by the Consamer.
"Before it can be disposed of the party
who import it mast pay into the treasury
of the United States the tariff which the
lawJmpoaes, and then ia order to save him
selflrom loss he must sell it for enough tc
get back the original cost In the forelijn
country and the talis paid oa ft here, if
the system bad been confined to its legiti-
mate purpose of raising necessary reve
nue, to be economically expended, I doubt
if any considerable apposition to it conld
have been aroused. But the hope of gain
has led interested parties to insist that
the system shall be extended beyond Hie
purpose for which alone it may properly
be used and si ado to embrace the distinct
purpose of building up special lines of in
dustry independent of the necessities of
the government. ,
Divider IU People into Classes.
"Inasmuch as this ean only be accom
plished by taking front one class that
which is given to another, it is plain that
by such a system our people are instantly
drvided into classes occupying directly
opposite relatious to the government, one
of which is the recipient of bounties be
stowed by law, the other the bearer of
burdens imposed through the same
agency. The evils of such a policy ought
to be apparent to all. Of necessity it must
produce one of two results: the collection
of revenue we do not need, and the conse
quent extra vacant expenditure of the peo
ple'streasure (for the money collected must
be as promptly expended); or if the tariff
is made sufficiently large to preveut im
portations the masses are instantly placed
at the mercy of combines and trusts.
Legislation for Certain Interests.
"Is it the opinion of the gentlemen who
framed the Republican platform that dis
cussion of this subject, vital to the wel
fare of their state, should be suppressed?
Is it not true that every time the subject
of tariff legislation is being discussed in
congress, representatives of our manu
facturing industries are on hand to demon
strate by statistics that the business they
represent is in a depressed condition. If
such is the fact, and because of this is it
not also true that legislation favorable to
these interests is sought for and obtained?
lefone of His Uothaiu Speech. t!3fj
"Did any one ever hear it claimed that
these gentlemen by making known the
condition of the industries thv-y represent
were siauderin( the states in which they
are located? Xo, gentlemen, you have un
dertaken a task greater tuau you can per
form. You canuot by the use of har h
words alone, shut the mouthsof those who
believe the best interests of their state de
mand that, the truth shall be known, nor
the eyes o; t Uose whose material welfare
those truths most vitally concern." This
last was in rjply to Republican criticism
of the govenor's speech at a banquet in
Xew York, in which he declared that
farming did not pay in Iowa.
