Will Gal" a Beaater.
The Chicago Herald, in a resume of
the legislative situation in Illinois, has
the following to say of the Twenty
fourth district, composed
of Hancock, Henderson and Mercer
counties, is fighting ground, ice a:s
trict used to go republican by six or
sercn hundred, but two years ago the
democrats on a f ull vote.carried it by over
400, and as the movement of population
has been such that many republicans
have moved west and many Germans
come in, the democrats are confident.
The growth of the tariff sentiment, too,
has been marked. The con
fidence of the democrats has also
increased by the renomina
tion of Senator Orville W. Berry,
in whose defeat lies a probability of an
increased democratic eain in the senate.
Senator Berry was an unfortunate adher
ent of the deadly cow law which the last
assembly passed. Hancock. Henderson
and Mercer counties all lie along the
Mississippi river, and when the muddy
waters recede, they leave lich bottom
lands on which the people have always
grazed their cattle in common. The
cow law deprives them of this free pas
turage by confining ail the cattle, and
Senator Berry has strangely enough
been made tha object of
a good deal of opposition on
this account. The cow law was an inno
cent title law when it was passed, but it
has damaged many a statesman and
blighted many an ambition in Its simple,
unassuming little way. Edmunds an;
Myers, the democratic candidates for
he bouse, happened to vote against the
cow law and unconsciously endeared
themselves to the bearta of their people.
Edward Wolff, of Mercer county, has
been nominated for the senate by the
democrats. He can make a German ora
tion, and as Senator Berry's record on
the Edwards law is also displeasing to
the Germans, everything seems to be
coming the way of the democrats in the
Won't man the L.lct.
Commissioner Peck s remarkable labor
statistics which pretended to show that
the workingmen of New York were get
ting $200 a year more than the toilers
over the line in the states of Connecticut
and Massachussets are now being as
heartily abused by the republican press
as they w-ere at first by the democrats.
Here is what is said by the Philadelphia
Telegraph, one of tne great republican
journals of the east:
If Commissioner Peck's report came
from a different source it would be en
titled to general public respect. Unfor
tunately, however, it is a matter of his
tory that this particular bureau of labor,
so cal'ed. baa more than once attracted
attention by its sensational perform,
knees, putting forth documents that
would not bear the light of honest ex
amination. In this caas Mr. Peck has
Riven to the American people a paper
tfcp reception of which fully illustrates
its character. As the matter stands this
report has already become a powerful
boomerang. At the first fire of criticism
it goes to pieces like a house of cards.
An hour's study of this paper by any
citizen of ordinary mental capacity will
result in its beinz thrown aside as abso
The fact is no pretended investigation
upon the subject of tariff and wages has
been presented from eny source for many
years past of less mtrit in any possible
way than this paper of Labor Comrris
aioner Peck. The political party against
which it is manifestly directed can riddle
it until there is absolutely nothing left of
it. Not only that, but the document is
eure to prove a destructive boomerang in
tbe discussion of the wisdom or unwis
dom of the present tariff law, its advan
tages or disadvantages to the working
people. For instance, tbe aver
age increase in earnings for all
classes in the 136 branches of
trade so absurdly included under the
head of "Clothing," is shown to be about
SO cents a week, or 4 per cent over that
earned in 1890; while, as is well known,
lome of the schedules of the tariff rela--fng
to clothing show an increase of 30 to
00 per cent. . Again, what sense is there
la putting out a document of this sort to
' try and convince tbe working people of
Hew York tkat their wage have been
raised, their financial condition bettered?

Newspapers of tlie Western Metropolis.
The Chicago Dailies are pretty well
divided this year politically. On the
Republican side the Tribune has dropped
its free trade policy until after the elec
tion and is now advocating protection as
vigorously as McKinlev himself. It is
somewhat cold on certain Republican.
candidates, but manages to hold its place
in the party line.
The Inter-Ocean is of course a thick
and thin Republican paper. It stops at
nothing to further the interests of that
party, and is striving hard to displace
The Tribune as the party organ. The

is much the best paper of the two.

On the Democratic side .the Times,
with Carter H. Harrison at its head, is
doing good work lor the party. It is in
full sympathy with the candidates and
the platform, and promises during the
coming campaign to not only do good
work for the party, but to gain an in
fluence with the people greater even
than it enjoyed in its palmiest days of
The Herald does not claim to be a
Democratic paper, but it is now doing
good work for the Democratic ticket
from top to bottom. Its fight against
certain candidates ended with the con
vention, and with its immense circula
tion and clean editorial work, it prom
ises to accomplish positive results dur
ing the campaign.
The Globe, the youngest of the Chi
cago dailies, is a straightout Democratic
paper with no foolishness about it. It
is bright, breezy and enterprising, and
has a large and growing circulation in
the city, where it exerts a powerful in
fluence. The News Record formerly the morn
ing edition of the News, and the Even
ing News, both under the same manage
ment, appear to be trying to be inde
pendent. Such attempts usually fail and
and a iwiper has to drop on one side or
the other before election day. It claims
to be for tariff reform, but is not as yet
advocating that policy very strongly. It
evidently does not care to be a party
organ and may yet come out for the Pro

paper with a leaning toward the Repub

The Tagblatt is a new German daily

Made to Order.
The Republicans are getting a bushel
of comfort out of Peck's report, but
somehow it has fallen flat and has not
produced expected results. It was so
evidently made to order that people be
gan early to doubt its truth, and when
its character and that of the man who
made it were investigated it served only
to show the desperate expedients to
which the Republican party has been
compelled to resort.
