Thk negro voters of the state, through
their organization, the Cclored People's

L. Eer'z, candidate for state treasurer on

against him . They say that if the demo

will defeat him at the polls alone in Nov

Notwithstanding that assaults, rob
beries and murder have been frequently
committed in the apartment passenger
cars in use on English railways, the com
panies are making no move to equip their
lines with open coaches of the Atnerictn
type. This is not because the companies
are nnprogretsive, but because the
English spirit is insular. The average
Englishman wonld rather travel in an

The Herald some time ago suggested his
value in a position of this kind and is
gratified to learn he ia being generally

to over-look him at this time.

in the debating school line, until 9, when
the chairman's gavel descends and the
gathering disperses. It is a plain demo

ALTGELD ON HOPKINS.
Be Shows What the Latter Should Bsts
Told the Convent low.
Job a P. Altgeld, Democratic candidate
for gt rernor, was asked by a reporter for
the Chicago Mail for h is views on the speech
of Coi igressman Hopkins, temporary chair
man of the Republican state convention.
The judge smiled and incidentally re
marked, that the speech was most remark
able far what it didn't contain. It was
held Vy the Republicans that the address
of Mr. Hopkins was one of the ablest pre
sentations of the Republican side of the
campVgn issues that has yet been made in
this state. This is probably true, but evi
dently Judge Altgeld does not hold the
views t herein expressed to be sound. He
talked freely on Mr. Hopkins ntterances,
and an ong other things he said:
"The speech of Mr. Hopkins, the tempo
rary ch tirman of the Republican conven
tion at Springfield, was an illustration of
the sub line confidence the leaders of the
Repnbl can party have in the gullibility
of the A merican public During the last
fifty yet rs great strides have been made in
the indt s tries of the world, owing to in
vention, to a quickening ingenuity, to
division of labor, to improved machinery,
and in proved methods. Consequently
many of the useful articles of life can be
made for less than one-quarter what they
formerly cost. This progress has been
made in spite of the American prohibitory
tariff. Mr. Hopkins had the assurance to
tell the tssembled Republicans that the
tariff hat! been a bteasing to the working
man aud to the farmer of this country,
ana he pointed to the fact that some things
were ma ie cheaper now than they were
twenty yv.ars ago, but he took good care
not to tell them what those things could
be bopgtt for now if the tariff were re
moved. "He tol 1 a story to illustrate the differ
ence betv-een theory and practice. Now
the troub e with the tariff is that it is only
in theory that it confers any benefits.
Practically it has injured both the work-
ingman and the farmer because it compels
them to I ay a higher price for everything
they have t tmy, and it does not in the
least protect the workingman's wages,
while it deprives the farmer of the mar
kets of the world. If Hopkins had
anted to tell the Republicans at Spring
field the whole truth, he should have told
them that we have had the most absolute
free trade n labor since 1860; that the par-
pose of the tariff was to enable the manu
facturer to sell his goods at a higher price.
and that in the effect of it. It this were
not so thei-e would be no need of a tariff.
Mannfactu rers w-nld not give from $10,000
to $50,000 toward fiising a corruption fund
with which to carry an election in order to
elect a man like Mr. Hopkins to maintain
the tariff laws. They expect to get their
money back, through these tariff laws.
fot only so, but they expect to get large
fortunes in iiddition back through the tariff.
Now, these fortunes are made out of the
increased pi-ice at which they can sell their
goods over what they would get if there
was no tariff and they had to sell their
goods at tlir same price that the English
man and the Izerman and the frenchman
'But whi'.e they are thus protected in
their prices they import the labor they
want from the pauper labor fields of Eu
rope, so that every hour during which the
protective b.riff has been in existence the
laboring mi.n has had to compete with
the pauper labor of Europe; not only the
labor that enme here in the way of honest
immigratioc, but the very men who con
tributed mi lions of dollars to maintain
the tariff viclated the laws and imported
shiploads alter shiploads of European
pauper laboi-ers under contract, so that
according to so high an authority as T. V.
Powderly, bt th the American born and the
naturalized American laborer have been
driven out of the great state of Pennsyl
vania and their places filled by Huns,
Poles, Italiai s, and others, brought nnder
contract, in v iolation of law. If Hopkins
bad wanted to tell the whole truth he
would have told the Republicans at
Springfield tl at the billion dollar congress
which enactel the McKinley law, increas
ing the tariff from 40 to 60 per cent., had
scarcely adjourned when upward of 300
manufacturicg establishments, who were
to be benefitted by this tariff, reduced the
wages of their workingmen, so that while
the McKinley law increased the price of
everything th j workingman bad to buy, it
permitted hit wages to be cat down.
Hopkins should further have told his aud
ience that there are nearly forty of the
leading establishments which were built
np nnder the tariff, chief among them
being Mr. Carnegie's, employing upward
of 50,000 men, that have banished organ
ised labor fro n their shons and filled its
place with lal or imported from Europe.
Hopkins Bhould further have told his aud
ience that wh Ie the tariff keeps np the
price of every thing which the farmer has
to buy it has tended to rob us of the mar
kets of the world, and that for ten years
arms aud farm products nave been de
clining in valu i.
"Hopkins sh mid have told his audience
that while upward of 50,000,000 of people
were being tax h! by a tariff law to enable
Mr. Carnegie to accumulate upward of
$50,000,000, and while Carnegie was spend'
ing his time preaching to the American
people what a Christian gentleman should
do with his millions, the farmers of Amer
ica, from whose sweat these millions were
made, found th ; mortgages on their farms
growing larger, and the laboring men of
America found that they were harder and
harder driven l y imported pauper labor.
The Republican party has given the
American laborer and the American
farmer the kind of protection which the
elephant gave to the partridges. When
walking throng l the woods he ran across
some partridgi-s that had lost their
mother, and w re in deep distress. His
heart was move! with compassion; tears
rolled down his proboscis, and he said to
them: Come, get yourselves together
now, and I wtl be a mother to you.'
They got them Ives together, and he sat
down upon them and covered them."
Birds oat Women's Bonnets.
It has been e imputed that for every
bird of the rarer npecies such as the hum
tning bird, the orange and scarlet cock of
the rock, the oriole, and the kingfisher
that is worn in a woman's headgear, at
least ten have suffered the death pang;
counting in the young who die of starva
tion, the wounded which fly away to drop
down and die ii the woods or among
the reeds, and those which are mutilated
and destroyed by the pellets so much as to
be unavailable for purposes of decoration.

As the train stopped at a small station
in Kentucky it was discovered that a
switch engine had run off the track just
beyond and a wrecking crew was at
work getting her off. The conductor
said we wonld be detained half an hour,
and many of us went np to see the
wreckers at work. : There was a crowd
of fifty around the spot when a fat,
good natured looking man, ho had a
month big enough to take in half a
pumpkin pie, came sauntering np and
bowed and smiled to everybody. He
was jnst getting ready to say something
when a little skinny man with a piping
voice cried out at him.
"Don't yo" do it, Sile Davis don't yo'
do itt If yo' do I'll give yo' dead away."
The good natured man fell back at
this, and I saw him wink and motion to
the skinny man to draw aside for a con
fab. "I don't want no track with yo', Sile

The language aroused our curiosity,
as a matter of course, and wo were anx

The fat man walked around for a minute
or two, and when he thought the other
was not looking he slipped np to one of

he didn't bold bis nerve over a minute,
