Mr. Harrison chose a bad time to
spring his letter of acceptance upon the
public. The people were so much in
terested in the doings of Messrs. Corbett,
Sullivan, Myers and other gentlemen of
that ilk that they had no time to read the
utterances of a mere president.
Indianapolis Sentinel: As Harrison's
letter Is a model in pettifogging, so is
Blaine's letter a model of perfuncton
nets. He does not mention Harrison's
name and the task of writing at all was
so distasteful that he found it impossible
to occupy more than a column and a half
of brevier type.
More than 10,000 men are now at
work getting the World's Fair buildings
and grounds ready for the great exposi
tion of 1893. On a number of the struc
tures work proceeds day and night. "Won
derful progress is being made, and it is
assured that all will be completed in time
for the opening.
The Union is fearful that the state of
Illinois may be carried by the democracy
this fall, as this district was in 1S9Q.
through the efforts of Congressman Ca
ble. The only surprising thing about it
is tfcat the Union discovered the proba
ble outcome of the election so early in
Adair Pleasants said in his 6peech
last night that he did'nt understand "how
democrats could raise a flag without
blushing." If the gentleman bad heard
the comments of his republican auditors
upon the delivery of this "smart" sally,
the gentleman would probably have
blushed to the roots of bis hair.
At the Henry County Teachers' Insti
tute lately held in Geneaeo, the question
of township organization was brought
up by the county superintendent. This
local organization scheme proposes to
have the teachers employed in each town-,
ship form themselves into a teachers'
club. It further suggests that the club
meet at certain places, thereby giving the
members an excellent opportunity to be
come acquainted. The motion to organ
ize such a club in each and every town
hip in the county wai made and carried.
It. E. Christy editor of the Indian
apolis World, one of the most prominent
colored men of the state, announces that
he has left the republican party and will
support the entire democratic ticket at
the coming election, as his eyes have at
last been opened. He says: "I have
been a slave of the republican party
since the day when I cast my first vote,
but I have made up my mind to think
and vote as I please hereafter. I have
long since ascertained that the glorious
promises which are held out to the peo
ple of my color by republican office seek
ers on the eve of an election invariably
fail to materialize, and it seems to me
that it is high time we were calling a halt
on such dupery."
The fundamental falsity of McKinley
ism is shown by its innumerable self-contradictions,
says the Ottawa Free Trader.
In bis late campaign speeches he is con
stantly repeating that "substantially
everything that protection directly af
fects baa been reduced in price, except
labor." It is admitted that the only ra
tional object of protection is to enable
the manufacturer to get better prices for
bis goods. If that object Is defeated,
and the effect has been to reduce his
prices, bow can he raise his workmen's
wages f Again, if the effect of a protec
tive tariff is to reduce the price of the
commodity upon which the tariff is laid,
why should a iariil be levied on the
farmer's commodities, the prices of the
farmer's products being thereby reduced?
I'erk Verona Perk.
President Harrison, in bis letter of ac
ceptance, quotes the letter of Charles F.
Peck, labor commissioner of the state of
New York, as proving that the McKinky
bill was followed by a large increase in
the ageregate sum paid in wages in that
state, and said that it "corroborates the
facts found by the senate committee."
So far from corroborating the report of
the senate "committee. Commissioner
Peck's report distinctly antagonizes it in
-very important point, as shown by Sen
ator Carlisle's masterly review of the
work of the senate committee.
As to Mr. Peck's report, it is clearly
the work of malice, and is wholly with
out value as a contribution to labor eta
tiitics. When Mr. Peck imagined that
Senator Hill would be the candidate for
president, as all of Mr. Hills friends in
New York believed in the month of May.
he wrote a letter to W. H. Greenhow, of
the Hornersville Tribune, his former
partner, which we quote in full.
Albany. May 10. 1892 I was glad to
se- you take up the Times' assertion that
my reports proved that workingmen had
received increased wages, and reply to it
as vou did. I notice, however, that
tne same naDer of yesterday again re
fers to my report of 1891. It claims that
I show that there were i.4i instances
of advanced wages for 1891 and
2,085 cases in which the hours of labor
were shortened, while it recoras oniy 44 1
cases of reduction. Whether the Times
has Durooselv attempted to deceive its
readers I don't pretend to say, taken from
this bureau report of 1890 and 1891, tt e
year before the McKinley bill wtnt into
effect and not the year alter, as it wouiu
have the public believe.
However, it makes no special differ
ence for the reason, as you clearly set
forth, that in every instance or either the
increase of wages or shortening of hours
it was the direct result of the demands
of organized labor, and for no other con
ceivable causs. When my report for
1891 does come out the Times and a'l the
protection papers of the whole country
will have to stand from under. I am
tabulating the data and statistics of the
industrial census I have taken for the
year before and the year after the Mc
Kinley bill went into effect, and enough
has been demonstrated to warrant me in
claiming that it will furnish the most
complete refutation of the theories of the
protectionists in regard to wages that has
ever been published.
I shall also continue the results of all
labor disturbances occurring in the state
during the past year, and show that out
of the thousands of euccessrui siriB.es
for increase of wages, not oce was or is
attributed to protection. And I shall
show from the manufacturers themselves
that in no single instance where there
was an increase of wages was it volun-
tarv on their part. Except in individual
cases every increase was the result of the
demand on the part or employes en
forced through their organizations.
Charles j 1'eck.
At the time this letter was written, as
Mr. Peck says, he had carefally exam
ined all the data before him and gave
his conclusion. The defeat of Mr. Hill
at Chicago seems to have changed his
views, and the president eagerly seizes
upon a report plainly prompted by malice
agtinst his opponent, and adopts it as
the chief authority on which he relies in
his letter of acceptance. Peck and Har
rison seem to be about the same size.

Catarrh Cant be Cared
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of tbe disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of the two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

PROTECTION IN PRACTICE.
An Incontrovertible Statement Made fcy
The Engineering and Mining Journal
gives an exceedingly valuable illustra
tion of the manner in which a protec
tive tariff raists its beneficiaries above
the operations of the national law of
The illustration concerns 6teel rails,
which are now $4 a ton higher than they
were in 1885, although the cost of pro
duction and the tariff tax are less and
(he demand is light. The command of
the market by reason of the tariff on
rails and the ownership of the Besse
mer patents has enabled the rail makers
to fix arbitrarily the price of their pro
ducts. The American manufacturers make
much of the fact that improved ma
chinery has greatly increased their out
put, and The Journal est incites that the
cost of producing steel rails, when the
manufacturer makes his own pig, can
not exceed $20 a ton. In 1885 steel rails
sold at $26 a ton, and the cost of Besse
mer pig alone was $16. At $30 a ton
the profits on the annual output of steel
rails is necessarify between $10,000,000
That the protective tariff gives this
enormous dividend to the makers, who,
instead of increasing wages are trying to
cut them down, is shown by an exami
nation of English priees. In May, 1892,
English rails sold for $19.44. The duty
on this $13.44 would make the price
$32.88, not counting freight and insur
ance. It is clear therefore that $30 is
the price at which the English rails can
be kept out. While the English price
has fallen since 1885 from $23.17 a ton to
$19.44, the price of English pig has risen
from $10.69 a ton to $12.15.
In other words, the English maker
pays $1.43 more for his" pig and gets
$3.73 less for his rails. At the same
time, while the price of American rails
advanced from $26 to $30 a ton, the
price of American pig fell from $17 to
$14 a ton, so that the American maker
paid $3 less for his pig and got $4 more
for his product.
This gain he keeps for himself. New
A Startling Record.
It is to be remembered that manufac
tures in this country have not been pros
perous during the past year, and that
the decrease in imports has not been off
set by home production. The enormous
taxes levied have simply compelled
thou-ands of the people of the United
States to do without these necessaries,
while other thousands have bought them
at the cost of a heavy tribute either to
an extravagant government or to pam
pered trusts. It is a record which should
make sensible men pause and think.
Sioux Falls (S. D.) Arjjjus-Leader.
Jnst I'lnlii, lowiirilit Kobbery.
The worst feature of tariff protection
is that the schemers who are to le bene
fited are called in by the ways and means
committee and consulted as to the
amount and kind of taxes they want on
foreign goods that might compete with
theirs, and the people who do not get
any benefit have to pay the tax in ignor
ance. It is robbery. The roblery will
continue just so long as the sufferers al
low it. The beneficiaries would never
move its repeal.' Des Moines Leader.
Corrupters of Youth.
Cicero in the Roman senate branded
Catiline as the corrupter of youth. The
Dudleys and Quays of the Republican
party are the Catilines, the corrupters
of youth; the exponents of the party
which inaugurated the corrupt use of
money in elections, and which founds its
hope of success on the amount of money
it can raise from favored and protected
classes. Do they recall the fate of
Catiline and his followers? Cleveland
