publican states an increase of 13 electoral
votes aad democratic states an increase
of but five. This fraud, in connection
with that other fraud, the admission of
republican territories to statehood, which

advantage at the start of 30 votes oyer the

a republican administration never to neg

A timely feature of the May Reviews
of Revuws. and ODe which illustrates
that periodical's habitual journalistic
foresight, is a readable (ketch of a large
number of the most important conven
tions and sumtxer gatherings which are
to be held in the present year, beginning
with the great political conventions, and
taking up successively the educational,
scientific and philanthropic meetings, the
religious gatherings of the season, a num
ber of miscellaneous conventions and
meetings oi natiorai scope, ten or a
dozen prominent summer schools, and
seven or eight important foreign occa
siocs of the year, including the Colum
bian celebration at Genoa and the exhi
bition at Madrid, the summer schoots at
Oxford, the Vienna exposition of music
and the drama, ard the religious confer
ences at Unndelwald. The article is in
terspersed with illustrations.
rBESiDEXT garrison is Having some
bad days no w . The signs from Colorado,
Ohio and other 6tates are not rigbt. Tney
are depressing. Senator Wolcott boldly
states tbat Harrison will be beaten at
Minneapolis. In spite of the federal of
flee holders of New York that state i
against him. The rank and file of the
republican party are becoming weary of
having their politics run by Harrison's
place holders, and as Walcott says, tbey
are very apt to repudiate their work at
Minneapolis. Piatt is opposed to Hani
son. Q lay will have none of him. Clark
son is after him with a big club. What
will be the result? There will be sprung
upon the convention a ticket composed
of Lincoln and Reed or McKinley and
somebody else. It is said that when the
big men of the party get together in quiet
places, they exchange peppery opinions
concerning the president. But, as toe
Keokuk Constitution-Democrat says
should he v in at Minneapolis, it is be
coming more and more of a dead certain'

What UarGeld Thought.
It is very refreshing sometimes to
pause awhile in the fight against tariff
extortion, and while taking breath to
bait the protection bull with some rag
like this from one of (jarfield s speeches
"We have seen that one extreme school
of economists would place the price of
&U manufactured articles in the hands
of foreign producers by rendering it im
possible for our manufacturers to com
pete with them, while the other extreme
school, by making it impossible for the
foreigner to sell his competing wares in
our market, would give the people no
immediate check upon the prices which
our manufacturers might fix ' for their
products. I disagree with both these
extremes. 1 hold that a properly ad
justed competition between home and
foreign products is the best gauge by
Which to regulate in ernational trade.
"Duties should be so high that our
manufacturers can fairly compete with
the foreign product, but not bo high as
to enable them to drive out the foreign
article, enjoy the monopoly of the trade
and regulate the prices as they please.
This is my doctrine of protection. If
congress pursues this line of protection
steadily we shall year by year approach
more nearly to the basis of free trade,
because we shall be more nearly able to
compete with other nations on equal
terms. I am for a protection which
leads to ultimate free trade. I am for
that free trade which cau only be,
achieved through a reasonable protec
tion." Had Garfield been a member of the
Fifty-first congress he could not have
been whipped into line by McKinley.;
He would not merely have talked
against the McKinley bill, as Butter
worth did, but he would also have voted
against it, which Butterworth did not 1

Tl at it manufactured more than ever
before is a fair inference from two facts;
Fi.-st, that the grain crops last year,
were the largest in the history of the' I
CO intry, and, second, that the importa
tion of binding twine during the last
fi;al year, covering all the importation
for the crop year, or nearly all, was only
82:3 pounds, valued at thirty-three dol

According to the Republican doctrine,
therefore, these bills would not give the
farmers cheaper twiue and bagging.
Therefore, they are not class measures.
JThe Republican claim tbat reallv pro-
te live duties do not raise prices is false,
as tbe beneficiaries of the tariff are per-
fettly well aware. Their whole system
is :i system of class legislation. It is a
syf tem under which iudustries that are
self sustaining are forced to contribute
to the support of other industries that
clcim to lie and are assumed to be inca
pable of self support. The protection
ists admit that this is the original pur
pce e and effect of their system, and seek
to comfort tbe victims with the assur
ance that while they must bleed for a
tinie they will ultimately, and in some
way not clearly defined, recover their
own with interest.

What the Democrats propose in these
tW' bills and in the bill putting cotton
tien on the free list is not to grant spe
cial favors to farmers as a class, but
only to relieve them from a small part
of i he burden which has been laid upon
them as a class. They propose not to
legislate for a class, but to relieve a
cla& in some measure from legislation
which for years has discriminated
against that class.
Against these Democratic measures of
rehef from class legislation we find the
Republicans in the house arrayed in un
broken ranks, and we will find the Re
publicans in the senate arrayed on the
same side in solid phalanx. And as the
