The bounty of two cents a pound on
sugar is paid onlj to eugi'r planters who
produce 500 pounds and over annually.
The planter who produces less than 500
pounds gets no bounty. In this, as in
every otber feature of tbe McKinley tariff
law, the protection" is all for the rich
robbers. The planter with less than 500
pounds of sugar product a year not only
must sell his cane to the rich sugar
planter and accept whatever price is
doled out to him, but he must also pay
bis share of the two cents a pound
bounty to the rich sugar planter on the
very sugar the latter buys of him.
Buffalo Courier: Once upon a time
and it was not long ago Senator
Frank Hiscock made a tariff speech in
congress wherein he declared : "As to all
fabrics, iron, steel, wool and leather
goods, largely made up by machinery,
and in which manual labor is compara
tively a small element, we need do pro
tection whatever." The fact that in the
face of this explicit declaration Senator
Hiscock trampled under foot his convic
tions shows how far a n.odern republican
leader is willing to go in the dangerous
and vicious perversion of the taxing
power for the benefit of special interests.
TrtE Union's attempted reply this
morning to Judge Altgold's exposure of
the rottenness of state institutiois under
republican rule, is about as flimsy and ir
relevant as might have been expected
from that journal. To confront the
charges presented by Judge Alteeld it
had neither the capacity nor tbe material.
Governor Fifer and- the other state offi
cials having utterly failed to presect a
defer.se in the least degree acceptable to
the intelligent mind. Hence there was
but one course for tbe morning orenn to
pursue, and that to follow tbe lead ot
Gov. Fifer in what Judge Aitgtld so
properly termed mud-s!icging to evade
tbe truth. And that is tbe head and
body of the Union's position.

'Mevcland's message of
The Jewish holiday, Rosh Hoshanab,
v. hich is tbe Jewioh New Year, began at
sunset Wednesday night, from which
time and continuing until sunset last
night ".he holiday continued. As the
months of tbe Jewish calendar are lunar
months, ibis festival is movable, espec
ially in )etp year, and changes every
year according to tbe Julian calendar. It
occurred on Oct. 8 last year, and will oc
cur on Sept. 11 next year. It is a rather
remarkable circumstance that the Jewish
New Year's day does not occur in tbe
first ' Jewish month, Niaan, but in tbe
seventh Jewish month, Tisbri. The Mo
sax law on the subject is as follows:
"And the Lord spake unto Hoses, saying.
Speak unto tbe children of Israel, saving:
In the seventh month, in the first day of
the month, shall je have a Sabbath, a
memorial of blowing of trumpets or holv
convocation. Ye shall do no servile
work therein, but ye shall offer an offer
ing made by fire unto . the Lord. And
the Lord spake unto Moses, saying: Also,
on the tenth day of the seventh month
there shall be a day of atonement; it shall
be s holy convocation unto you; and ye
shall tfflict your soula and offer an offer
ing made by fire un o the Lord."

DUTY OF DEMOCRATS.
The Successor the Party Depends Mainly
Cpon Individual KfTort.
It will not do for Democrats to forget
for a moment that the success of the
party and its glorious principles this
year will depend mainly upon the indi
vidual effort of every one who espouses
the cause. Every man has Republican
friends over whom he has more or less
influence, and by appealing to them
earnestly and intelligently he may win
their support for Cleveland and Steven
son. A single vote thus won may turn
the election, and in no state is this more
likely than in Illinois. It is the duty of
every Democrat to become a politician
and take an active part in this campaign
of education for the next seventy days.
First let every possible vote be won by a
fair and earnest presentation of the is
sues upon which the party lines are
drawn, and on election day let every
Democrat see that all these votes are
properly cast and counted. If this is
done there will be certain and sufficient
reward for every effort made in the re
demption of the state and nation from
the thraldom of Republican rule. Al
Protection that Harts.
The Pacific coast is writhing over the
prospective effect of the action of the
government of Victoria, Australia, in
creasing the import duty on Oregon pine
to $ 9.25 per 1.000 feet and the duty on
canned fruit to six cents per pound, or
about fifteen cents per can. This is in
retaliation against the McKinley bill.
The blow is particularly severe to fruit
growers and camiers who have been for
years engaged in building up a market
in Australia for California cantihd goods.

Stevenson's I"opularit v-
The popularity of the Democratic
nominee for vice-president with those
who know him has rarely Iwn equaled
and never exceeded in this country.
Governor Proctor Knott explains it to
some extent in a letter in which he says:
"The conservatism of Mr. Stevenson is
not only pleasant and innocently cheer
ful, but carries with it a certain inde
scribable charm which renders him the
very soul and center of every social cir
cle in which he may be thrown." Hous

Such well known Republican lenders
as Wolcott. Teller, Washburn, Piatt,

Shadow Instead of tilt Substance.
' It seems to us that, under the circum
stances, the fiction of an American reg
ister is a pretty small matter. What
the people of this country wish for is
something actual and substantial, an
American merchant marine in every
sense of the word; but so far they seem
to lie likely to miss the substance and
have extended to them only the shadow.
"Suspended by the Thumbs."
The supporters of Carnegie and Har
rison toll us here in the west that the
way to be " progressive" is to vote the
ticket of the Pinkerton plutocracy; to
stand by the McKinley and force bills;
to stretch out our thumbs to the rack of
Carnegie "protection." But they have
had the west suspended by the thumbs
long enough. St. Louis Republic.
The Record Proves It.
For twenty years there has been a de
mand for legislation in behalf of men
who work for wages in the state of Illi
nois. Again and again has the Repub
lican party promised this legislation, but
the promise was never fulfilled. In 1890
the Democrats, in control of one house
and with a strong minority in the other,
forced through a number of bills that
are now on our statute books. The Re
publican party is the friend of the cor
porations and the foe of the farmers and
workingmen. Its record proves it.
Violating; the Laws
Is it the intention of our laws that in
sane patients who are possessed of
means or whose families are well off
should be supported for life whether
curable or incurable at the expense of
the state. Well, this is being done. Rich
patients are filling our state institutions,
while the county poor houses are filled
at the expense of the counties with pa
