What baa become of the Hon. Valasca
Chandler and his congressional boom?

for 16 jeart baa been elected. Harrison,
Cleyeland and Garfield were nominated
at Chicago. The next democratic con

It would save Morris Rosenfield sev
eral days' time and the inconvenience of
Bleeping on a cot, if he would send his
Tote as a national delegate to the Minne

label it "B. H." and it would undoubted
ly reach its destination all right.
CCokgkessman Cable gave a dinner at
his Washington residence the other eve
ning to Secretaries Blaine, Foster, Elk
ins and the Russian and French minis
ters. It was an event in the Washington
social season, and will be cracked up by
the fault-finding pigmies of republicanism
in the Eleventh district no doubt, as am
pie reason why Mr. Cable is not properly
serving his constituents.
A fabhbb ia. Manchester, Me., is re
fleeting sorrowfully upon the maxim that
"Honesty is the best policy." Several
years ago. in order to avoid paying some
debts, he conveyed his farm, worth 4,
000, to his wife. The wife died recently,
and according to law the property goes
to ber children, the widower's right of
dower excepted. The children refuse to
reconvey the farm to their father.
The Keokuk Constitution-Democrat
observes that this is the greatest vating
nation on the earth. There are more
Americans who vote than the voters of
any other country; they vote more fre
quently, and elect by popular suffrage a
larger proportion of their public offices.
In 1888 nearly 11,400,000 citizens voted
for president. This yeartho total will
not be less than 13.000.000. Whence
comes this increase of more than 1,500,
OOOvotest From the people of six new
states; from the newly naturalized im
migrants; from 1,000,000 young men who
will for the first time record their prefer
ences in a national election.
Judge Altgkld, the democratic nomi
nee for governor, was given a grand and
enthusiastic reception at Freeport Tues
day. The Bulletin in writing up the event
of the next governor's visit says, Judge
Altgeld's appearance is prepossessing
He is small in stature, his nose quite
prominent and his face shews that be is
a man of great will power and that when
be undertakes to accomplish a mission or
fulfill a promise he will use every effort
to do so. . He is a gentleman that it is a
pleasure to meet. He is quick at repar
tee, brilliant in speech, in other words he
ia a man of the people, one that is well
posted on all subject, and a gentleman
that every democrat as well as the inde
pendent voter and many republicans can
vote for with pleasure for governor next
November, feeling satisfied that he will
discharge the duties of the office to the
satisfaction of his constituents.
Tex St. Lous Republic says of the
late Senator Mathews: "In the death of
Senator Mathews, of Champaign, politics
in Illinois has lost one of its best expon
ents. Although a partisan of the most
intense type on all lines of party division
he was nevertheless a liberal and charita
ble man in all the conflicts and contro
versies into which his partisanship carried
bim. It was a part of his character to
ascribe to his opponents motives equally
honorable and disinterested as his own.
He never sought to defame men for the
purpose either of exalting one principle or
defeating another. He will be missed in
the public life of the state, and the want
of his masculine and vigorous participa
tion in campaigns will be felt by the e
publicans of the central-eastern sections
of the state. Democracy in a party sense
will be a gainer by his absence, but in the
broadest political and public sense his
death is a loss which will be felt by men
i an parties wno realize the need of men

late Dr. Holland when he wrote of them
Men whom the spoilt of office cannot bar

THE SUUAli TKUST.
IT h AS DISGUSTED EVEN THE M'KIN-
LEYITES BY ITS GREED.
Tk. Combination lias Forced Down the
Frle of Baw Sug-ar and Raised the
Price of Refined, Thns Adding About
1(1,000,000 to Its Yearly Fro fits.
Tin Philadelphia Press, the high tariff
orgaii of the Manufacturers' club, thus
scores the sugar trust:
0 ingress has provided that many
millicnsof revenue heretofore obtained
from sugar duties shall be diverted from
the public treasury and be given to the
peopK The trust, under the shelter
given to it by congress for a wise and
fair J urpose, proposes in turn to divert
a portion of this money from the pockets
of the people to the pockets of the mem
bers of the trust.
"Brethren, we say to yon that if the
protective system is to be employed for
such purposes as this, the game is up.
No chiimpion of that system can suc
ceed, tven if he were willing to try, in
commt nding to the people at one and
the sane time the protective system and
the su;;ar trust. It is quite impossible
to exptct the nation to regard with en
thusiasm, because it proposed to reduce
the prioe of sugar, a law which enables
the suj.-ar trust to defeat that intention.
What the purpose of the act is consum
ers do liot so much care.
"The thing that appeals most strongly
to them is the actual fact that sugar
prices have fallen. Now, if sugar
prices t&all again advance under the
manipulation of a protected conspiracy
against the people, it will be useless to
commei.d consumers to the purpose of
Mr. MeKinley. They will conclude,
and ngl.tly conclude, that if the whole
benefit cf the lower duties is not to come
to them, it should go once again into
the treas ury of the United States. The
opponents of the protective system will
have plased in their hands, at the. most
critical moment in the history of Ameri
can protection, a potent weapon with
which t) assail the protective theory,
and we venture to say that there is
small reason to doubt that the result
will be overwhelming defeat for the pro
"Openly, in view of every man in the
nation, There will be unanswerable
demonstration that the free traders do
not lack justification for their often re
peated allegation that the protective
tariff is used by manufacturers for the
purpose of enriching themselves at the
cost of tleir fellow citizens. The for
mation of the trust is indeed a challenge
issued to 1 he people. The latter, through
their representatives in congress, have
decreed tljtt sugar shall be cheapened.
The trust, on the contrary, declares that
it shall not be cheapened. There can be
no doubt cf the conclusion of this con
flict of interests if the people shall be
thoroughly roused, but there is some
reason for fearing that the consequences
may involve other than the offending
parties. The sugar trust places the en
tire manuf acturing interest of the coun
try in jeop irdy by its action, and in be
half of that interest we enter protest
against the- course that it is pursuing.
"Protest ng, however, is likely to be
cf small service in averting the peril in
which protected industry has been
placed by this combination. There can
be no safety but in action, and it may be
conjectured that there would be few ex
pressions of grief from protectionists if
a Republican senate should join with a
Democratic house in sending to a Re
publican pr esident, just as soon as the
sugar trust has made its monopoly com
plete, a bill placing all grades of refined
sugar upon the free list. The protec
tionists who defend protection upon
grounds of public interest have no con
cern to apologize for it when it is per
verted to tho interest of a few private
individuals. In truth, such abuse of
the system ought to encounter prompt
resistance from the sincere friends of
home indust-y, for the man who mis
uses the tariff in such a manner is a
more dangerous enemy of the system
than the moft active of the apostles of
free trade. The question for considera
tion would appear to be, Shall the sugar
trust be peimitted to use protection
for the overtlirow of protection?"
Protected by the tariff on refined
sugar, the stgar trust is now making
profits at the rate of 73.08 per cent on
the actual value of its properties. The
work required of the men employed in
the Bugar house is the hardest kind of
work possible, and a considerable num
ber of the me a are forced to work in in
tense heat. The low rate of wages,
$1.50 per day of ten hours, which the
trust is willing to pay is so low that no
American workman will work in the
sugar houses even Italians prefer to
work on the streets, pick rags and sell
fruit. The grisater part of the men em
ployed are Pcles and Hungarians, who
have been brought over under contract.
This is a true picture of a tariff protect
ed industry; vhere are the benefits to
The Fre Tin Plate Bill.
The tin plate bill, which has been re
ported to the bx nse by the committee on
ways and means, proposes to go back
from the MeKinley rate of 2 1-5 cents
per pound to tie old rate of one cent
per pound for two years and to keep tin
plate on the free list after that time. In
the report accompanying the bill the
committee sayi: "The distinction in
principle between the two" (the MeKin
ley bill and this "is the distinction be
tween a demand by one citizen that he
be licensed to take that which is not his
own and the petition of another citizen
that he be permitted to keep that which
is iiis own." This is true and well put.
Another Factory Beard From.
Shortly after the passage of the Me
Kinley act, N. & G. Taylor, of Philadel
phia, started a tin plate factory, which,
in a recent issue c f The American Econo
mist, was mentio led as turning out 900
boxes of tin plate per week. The other
day this great establishment was totally
destroyed by fire, and a press dispatch
announced the lot s at $3,500.
A Story Without Words.
Some of the Greatest Bargains.
They were talking of great bargains,
and giving personal recollections of some.
Each one tried to eclipse the previous
one's story either by recounting an ex
perience of bis own or of 6ome one of
whom he knew, generally of some one
of whom he knew. The records were
raked over for stories of men who grew
rich from small investments purchases
of real estate, stock, etc., that might be
Lessons were drawn from the 6tories
also in showing how the money made
from one bargain had been "turned
over" and augmented.
It was when the conversation flagged
that the tall, solemn man spoke up.
"Gentlemen," he said, "111 tell you
of some bargains that eclipsed thein
"Some!" they exclaimed in surprise.
"Several," returned the solemn man.
"I can't say offhand just how many."
There was an incredulous exclama
tion from all present, and some oue
"What are theyr
"The bargains that we just failed ti
make, gentlemen," he replied. "Tho
bargains we just failed to close, and
some other fellow got in first."
There was gloomy silence as they re
called some that they had missed, but
no one disputed the solemn man's state
ment. Chicago Tribune.
