The friend of Hon. George W. Vin
ton, our present representative in the
legislature, not only in Bock Island but
in Henry county, are very anxious that
he should again tecome a candidate for
his seat in the lower house at Spring
field. That Mr. Vinton msde a record
that is very highly creditable to him
none who have watchsd his course as
one of our law makers will question.
Not only was he the father of a number
of very important bills, some of which
became laws, but be particularly distin
guished himself in hia unswerving devo
tion to Gen. Palmer and was one of the
foremost, and moat fcie dst among
those who stool by Senator Palmer until
he was finally elected to his seal in the
United States Senate.

vertisement in the Tribune:
Wanted Stonemasons who can cut
and set; first class mechanics only need
apply; wages $3 per day. Call on
masons' foreman. Ophir Farm, near
White Plains, N. Y.
At the time this advertisement ap
peared the regular wages of stonemasons
were $4.50 a day. Mr. Reid is not in
the habit of paying regular wages, how
ever, when he can get his work doce for
loss. So be followed out the same plan
that he does in his newspaper business,
and tried to employ men at "rat" rates.
It is all very well for the vice presiden
tial candidate to declare his friendship
for the laboring classes at this inu rat
ing stage of the game, but history is
gainst him and shows that be is an ac
tive defender of the principle that he
rich man shall increase his property by
educing as far as possible tbe wages of
hia employees. Such a man is not fitted
to be vice president of the United Sia'es.

The McKinley bill places the highest
tax on those articles of clothing worn by
tbe great masses of the people. For in -stance
on woolens and worsteds valued
at not more than 30 cents a pound, tbe
McKinley tariff is 134 31 per cent The
old tariff on these good a was 69.87. Tne
free wool bill which passed the demo
cratic house te laced tbe tariff on this
clasa of goods to 35 per cent. Tne Mc
Kinley tariff on woolens above 40 cents a
pound was 96.75. which tbe demo
cratic bouse reduced to 35 per
ctnt. although the bill failed in the re
publican senate. It is tbe same with
blankets, shtwls. carpets and so on. The
highest tax is placed by tbe McKinley
bill on the things used by the great
'masses of socie'y, and the lowest tax is
placed on the tbioes used by tbe rich.
Blanket that the plain people use are
taxed 91 90 l r cent, while blankets used
by too r.ch are taxed 83 24 per cent.
Tue logriin carpet on tbe mechnnic's

II:rt, Cnlfl Farts Showing That Reed's
Cnngrre-s Com Appropriations by
tbe I'Kiest One Public Debt Redme
tion by Cleveland and Harrison.
Vhen the first session of the Fifty-first
fongresa.'eni?l The World predicted a
deficiency- in the treasury. The secre
taries of the treasury under the present
administration have concealed the defi
ciency by counting anions their avail
able assets uncurrent funds, the bank
note redemption fund and the gold re
serve and by holding up appropriations.
This fact and its true meaning hare been
exposed and explained by The World
from time to time, and now representa
tives Savers. Dockery and Holman.after
an examination cf the government's ac
count for the past two years, verify
The World's predictions by showing
that there is a real deficiency of more
Last year, because of the extrava
gance of the billion dollar congress, the
secretary was unable to meet the require
ments of the sinking fund, and this year
he will fail again to pay the amount re
quired by law to be set aside toward the
satisfaction of the public debt.
Messrs. Holann. Dockery and Sayers
estimate that the deficiency will be 50,
000,000 besides the sinking fund. If to
this sum there be added the amount of
the sinking fund due for the current fis
cal year, fl!,632,000, the $30,000,000 or
more represented by uncurrent moneys
and moneys owing to reserves and re
quired for appropriations, the deficiency
on June 30 next will really be much
more than $130,000,000.
The result has leen accomplished by
extravagance. During Mr. Harrison's
administration f 63f000,XH) less of the
government's bonds have been retired
than were paid during Mr. Cleveland's
administration. Besides this the actual
lack of present funds compelled the ad
ministration to extend $2..3d4,500 of the
4 1-2 per cent bonds, so that more than
$90,000,000 must be added to the defi
ciency, together with sh4.000,000 repre
senting the surplus in the treasury at the
end of Cleveland's term, in order to
reach a conclusion indicative of the re
lative cost of Mr. Harrison's and Mr.
In fact, the appropriations for the four
years of Mr. Harrison's administration
have exceeded those for the four years
of Mr. Cleveland's term by $441,944,204.
Ex-Sieaker Reed excuses this profli
gacy by asserting that the Democrats
are as much resionsible as the Repub
licans. Mr. Sayers and Judge Holman
puncture this claim. The apparent ex
cess of appropriations for the first ses
sion of the Fifty-second congress over
those of the first session of the Fifty
first is $13.24 5.131,92. But of the sums
appropriated by this congress there was
made absolutely necessary by the legis
lation of the Fifty-first congress the
enormous am unt of $79,527,602, and of
these $60.0."2,S43 may be charged prop
erly to Republican legislation.
Among them are the ocean subsidy
bounty, amounting to $390.210; cost of
collecting sugar bounty, $230,890; the
sugar bounty itself, $10.6u0,000, and pen
sion increase, $4S,000,000.
The Republican party cannot escape
responsibility for either the extrava
gance of the billion dollar congress, the
extravagance which it entailed upon
succeeding congresses by its pernament
legislation, or for the deficiency which
it has created. New York World.

Importance of Acliierins; Victory.
The importance of achieving victory
is so urgent and the disastrous conse
quences of defeat are so manifest that
no chances which may aid in winning
the battle must be neglected. The de
pressing effect upon the country and the
party which would inevitably follow a
Democratic repulse in November, was
truthfully portrayed by Mr. Cleveland
in his sieeoh. and he emphasized the
necessity for "systematic" and intelli
gent effort on the part of all who are
enlisted in our cause. Vigorous fight
ing and brilliant campaigning alone will
not win the election. That army fights
most successfully whose forces are
most compactly organized, and whos
movements are directed by an intrepid
skillful and confident commander. The
valiant soldiers of Democracy can safely
trust the wisdom and the courage of
their leader in this campaign. Chicago
The Wornont Free Trade Howl
The Republican tendency in tariff leg
islation has unmistakably been toward
excessive protection. It is a tendency
that the democracy desires to check. It
will be checked without proceeding tow
ard the opiiosite extreme. The issue is
moderation against excess. The Repub
lican platform is embodied in the Mc
Kinley bill. Our opponents must suc
cessfully defend that measure or be
beaten. The false and outworn free
trade howl has nothing to do with the
case. Tariff reform is not free trade.

An Anspicioua Outlook.
The outlook for the triumph of the
Democratic candidates and Democratic
principles is indeed auspicious. In all
sections of the country nothing but good
reportj are beard, and in all sections
Democrats are confident that Cleveland
will be tbe next president. ' The inde
pendent vote of the country is rallying
arcund our standard bearer to a greater
extent t-vcu than was anticipated. In
every city, village and haralet acquisi
tions to the ?).'tiiocratic cause are almost
daily reported. Syracuse (N. Y.) Cou

Within a few more years the Republi
cans will have succeeded in weakening
the people until they are unable to ofTer
any resistance to the tariff robbers. The
average pauper voter will turn both
pockets inside out and take off his hat in
meek humility when he is permitted to

Medical Knowledge Applied.
Disease is a weakness or loss of vital
force in some part of tbe body.

the fact that tbe physician applies his
