Et Louis Globe Democrat (Rep ): The
nomination of Whitelaw Reid for vice
president is a blunder of a peculiarly se-
aious -mi senseless kind. It is a conces
sion to the Blaine faction of the party
which ought not to have been made un
der any circumstances. The antagonism
of the labor tlement of Mr. Reid is pro
nounced and bitter, and ought to have
been taken into consideration by the del
egates. There are many Blaine men who
would have been unobjectionable from
any point of view. Some of them would
bave strengthened the ticket very materi
ally. Mr. Reid decidedly and emphatic
ally weakens the ticke.
The Union takes it upon itself to score
the Tri-City Labor congress for repudia
ting the Rock Islander as its party organ,
just at that moment when it has declared
its allegiance to republican doctrines.
The Union is probably the first to put a
political construction on this, not alto
gether insignificant move of our laboring
peopIe; whom The Aroub was not dis
posed to charge with acting otherwise
than in good faith. However, if the
Union discerns the handwriting on the
wall in the step taken by labor which re
nounces republicanism in order to ad -ance
its own interets, the anxiety and fury
of the morning paper is in a measure excusable.
I an EatBy i f Labor.
The nomination of Mr Whitelaw Reid
for the vice presidency will, as an ex
change aptly puts it, give respectability
but not strength to tbe republican ticket
A forlut ale maniage made him a multi
milliona re, while his tastes made him an
aristocrat. Of lordly mien and imperious
manners, he looks over tbe heads of the
plain peipleand cultivates only the ac
quaintacce of a rich and favored few.
During the whole of bis jaurnalistic
career ht has been an enemy of labor,
and coull he have his way, the laboring
man wot d be a mere hewer of wood and
dra wtr o ' water. He has done his utmost to
destroy tae printers' union and all other
trtdes ui ions. He believes that wealth
makes right and that the men who toil
for a livn g should le dependents of the
rich. Expecting the nomination for the
vi ;e pres dency, and in order to conciliate
the men 'vhom he fought these many
years, he recently admitted unton men
into his e nploy. But this step will avail
him naught, as his insincerity is too ap
parent. Mr. Reid was not nominated to catch
votes, but to raise money with which to
debauch voters. His nomination will
suit Wall Ureet and tbe Anilicians of the
east, but i will not prove popular among
the toiling masses. Tte enemy of labor
cintot ex ect the votes of those who la
bor for a living.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FAST BE
COMING A NATION OF "SHAKERS."
Since the MoKinley Itill Went Into Ef
fect the Shoddy ltusincs. lias lleen
Unusually Prospermia Our Tariff a
Godsend to Shoddy Manufacturers.
There can be little doubt that the
American people wear more shoddy
than do the people of any other country
on the face of the globe. Here are a
few eif the proofs of this statement:
First According to the census statis
tics of 1880 the total amount of raw ma
terial consumed in the manufacture of
woolen goods was 40-1,000,000 pounds.
After reducing wool to a secured basis
we find that only 418,000,000 pounds of
pure wool were consumed. This slttiws
that the comppaitfcw of woolen goods
made in 1SS0 was 108 parts of adulter
ants and 118 jvtrts of pure wool. The
census of 1S!0 shows that the number of
pounds of pure wool used had increased
to 194,000,000, and of shoddy, cotton and
other adulterants from 106,000,000
pounds in 1S.S0 to 154,000,000 pounds in
1890 thus giving a, ratio of 45 parts of
pure wool to 55 parts of adulterants.
Second Since the McKinley bill went
into effect the shoddy business baa en
joyed an era of unusual prosperity. As
an indication of this we quote the fol
lowing under the heading, "Rags, shod
dier, Waste-s and Extracts," from The
American Wool and Cotton Reporter of
May 19, lHO:
"New Clips There has been steady
current of business during the past
week and results lmve been altogether
Merchant tailors' clips, darks and
Mack, are picked up as fast as made.
The pronounced demand for dark and
black worsted, noted last week con
tinues. TJiere is more or less inquiry
for all the various grades of new woolen
"Woolen Rags Some dealers aver
that they have sold in the two weeks of
May, 1818, within a few hundred dollars
of all last Mays (1891 1 sales. In the sale
daring the past week of red. blue, gray
knit there has be-en no li-t up. White
tinseya have moved wi ll, so has hood
stock generally. Dark and light merinos
are1 selling fast.
"Shoddies Business for the first half
of May (Monday, 10) has favorably com
pared with last year's record in the
same perioel. There is unmistakably an
inereased demand for finer steiek.
"Extracts Manufacturers in general
are having nil they can do to fill orders.
"Wool Waste There has been no
falling off this month in this trade.
During the past week a good deal of
Ugb grade waste has been sold.
"FK'cks Business in this line for the
month thus far has been quite satis
factory."' The same indications of the healthy
growth of this unhealthful industry are

Third Xo other country has a duty On
wools that will average 80 or 70 percent.,
thus depriving us of the purer wool and
compelling us to use all kinds of adulter
antsrags, hair, cotton, etc. That our
tariff is a godsend to the shoddy manu
facturers is testified to by the Cad that
in ISSS, when the Mills bill proposed to
give us free wool, seventeen rag and
shoddy dealers signed a circular (used by
the Republican national committee) in
which they denounced the Mills bill as a
free trade measure and said that free
wool would ruin thei t business. Further
testimony comes from the petition vf tho
Kensington Reform club, of Philadel
phia (which contains about 2.10 wool
workers), presented to congress April 6,
1892. After asking for free woo to help
the woolen business anil incidentally to
provide steadier employment for more
labor and to give cheajier clothing to the
consumer, they say that the materials of
manufacture are deteriorating, and the
manufacturers "dare? not put their work
ingmen on the stand to testify under
oath, for then there would lie a full cor
roboration of the statement made to your
honorable committee of ways and means
by the committee of the Wool Consum
ers' association that the McKinley law
has largely promoted the adulteration of
Set Him Right.
Oeo. Augustus Sala, tbe well known
English writer, on his last Australian trip
wrote as follows to The London Daily
"I isp ciallyhave a pleasant remember
ance of the ship's doctor a very ex
perienced maritime medico indeed, who
tended me most kiudiy during a horrible
spell of bronchitis and spssmcdic asthma
provoked by the sea fcg which had
scooped down on us just after we left
San Francisco. But the docor's pres
criptions and the increasing warmth of
the temperature as we neared the Tropics
and, in particular, a coupl 3 of Allcock's
Porous Piasters clapped on one on the
chest and another between the shoulder
blades soon set me right "
In a series of papers I have shown np
the hardships that the present villainous
tariff imposes on you a tariff system
conceived and enacted during four years
of civil war, and which during twenty
two years of peace was always altered
and amended in the interest of monopoly
and restriction. For more than twenty
years the great tariff swindle has been
like an incubus upon this fair land. To
the economist it passes all comprehension
how the American farmers, whose industry-,
sobriety, intelligence, and I may
say religious habits, are the pride, and
mainstay of this great country, now
counting more than 60,000,000, could
have for so many years acquiesced and
borne the hardship of Euch a villainous,
excessive taxation as our present tariff
impes es on them.
Well may the economist stand aghast
when he considers how anxious the farm
er is to get two or three cents a bushel
more for, say, 100 bushels of wheat he
has for sale, which at the utmost only
amounts to three dollars difference; and
yet when he has to expend only one
quarter of the sum he receives for 100
bushels of wheat in Iowa or Kansas
say, for Instance, eighteen dollars all
told in winter dresses for his wife and
daughters, he actually pays over eight
dollars in taxes on account of the tariff,
besides the profit that the several mer
chants mai;e on the goods. Of course
this is only a single item in the tax list,
as I have already shown more in detail
how this tax system presses all the farm
ing population in every article they have
to buy and consume, while the surplus
agricultural products they raise they
have to sell at home at the lowest price
prevalent in London and Liverpool. J.
