Gkctnnati Enquirer: The democratic
party baa nothing to do with free trae,
imt it is bitterly opposed to the continu
mtioa end tbe persistent increase of a war
tariff 27 years after tbe war is over.
Ibmjkvk," says Mr. T. V. Powlerly,
that if it is right to place a duty on the
mamnfactured article in order to protect
tbe workmen ou this side of the Atlantic,
it cannot be richt for the foreign work
mb to come bere in droves to take tbe
places, at reduced wages, of the Ameri-
Altreld a Strong- Candidate.
Tbere is abundant and gratifying evi
aieace of the fact that tbe democratic
convention was dominated by political
-wisdom when it n mod Judge Al:geld
for governor. Some democrats (itd
tbe Herald confesses it was one of the
number) weie permeated with the im
pression that the nomination of AUgild
was fraught with nameless perils for tbe
party. Tbese impressions were given
Tree expression in a eeties of anti-con
-vention editorials in tLis paper which
J oat at tbe present time corny rise tbe
principal basis of republican attack on
tee judge. Tbe Chicago Tribune is con
spicuous in tbe effort to discredit Judge
Altgeld by republishing our editorial
protests agains: bis candidacy.
Tbe course of tbe Tribune suggests
comparisons that no other paper in
America can so ill afford to meet. For
inconsistency in its published opinions
of men and measures that paper bas long
stood without a possible rival . Tbe edi
torial columns of the Tribune contain tl e
aaoet comprehensible and irrefutable in
dictment of the integrity of a popular
leader that bas ever been written cf a
pablic man in America. That man, in
dicted and provan guilty by the Tribune,
is James Q. Blaine, later arid for years
the god of that paper's supreme ido'a'ry
Tbe Herald never assumed to be jr.
possession of evidence implicating tbe ;n
tegrity of Judge Altgeld. It merely
printed unfavorable impressions derived
largely from Cbicigo papers of both par
ties bostile to tbe judge. It did not fan
cy a candidate wbo, rightly or wrongly,
-was made to appear in tbe preliminary
canvass a political protege of Mike Mc
Donald. It was afraid of a candidacy
against which there were dark hints i t
republican papers of destructive revela
tions to follow the Domination.
Tbe Chicago Tribune swung over to
tbe support of Blaine, though its im
peachment of bis integrity has never
been answered. The Llera'd supports
Judge Altgtld with a cheering conviction
that its unfavorable premonitions regard
ins; bis record and personal relations
with a disreputable Chicago democrat,
were without foundation in fact.
Tbe "relations" that were to confuse
and demoralize tbe democracy ft Illinois
io tbe event of AUgel-J's nomination
naye not appeared, and tbe presumption
that be was "McDonald's man" bas long
ceased to retain any of the elements of
plauaibilitv. Tbe "defensive democratic
campaign" that was to follow with Alt
geld' name beading tbe tickot bas not
been teen, but instead, the judge has
pushed tbe fighting, and it is Joe Fifer's
sdoaini tration, and not Judge AUgeld's
career, that is now tbe defendant before
tbe voters of II inois.

The measure is not the outcome of

WHY THE WORKINGMAN IS POOR.
CREDIT DUE HIM FOR CHAMPIONING
THE WEEKLY PAY BILL.
The li (Forte and Sarcemi of the Demo
cratic Candidate for Lieutenant Gov
ernor In Behalf of the Worklngmtn of
Illlnoia While a Member of the General
Aasembly Republican Teltlmony In
11 la Favor.
Republican papers have been in the
habit lately of charging that Joe Gill
did not do anything for the miners and
and'laboring men in the last legislature.
This has been done with full knowledge
of the facts and with intent to deceive.
When the weekly pay bill went into the
house from the senate it went to the
committee on mines and mining, Joe
Gill chairman, which was then consid
ering a semi-monthly pay bill. At the
request of the representatives of the
workingmen the committee took up the
weekly pay bill and pushed it to its
final passage, through the earnest per
s jnal efforts of Joe Gill. The Chicago
Tribune of April 17, 1S91, said:
"The were two happy legislators in
Springfield last night (the 16th) Repre
sentatives Gill of Jackson and Senator
O'Conor of Lit Salle. As the leaders in
the fight for the weekly pay bill they
succeeded in forcing that measure
through both branches of the general
assembly, and it now only awaits the
signature of the governor to become a
law. This measure passed the senate
some time ago, and -early this week,
after a vigorous fight in the house, was
ordered to third reading. It would not
have been reached in its regular order
on third reading for some weeks yet,
bat Mr. Gill and his friends rallied the
supporters of the bill yesterday and suc
ceeded in having it taken up on third
reading. "Without any debate the roll
was called and the bill passed by a vote
of 116 yeas to 1 nay, Mr. Will of Cook
voting in tbe negative."
It must be understood that corpora
tions do not fight the measures in the
interest of the workingmen openly, and
when any of the bills are pushed to a
final passage and it is evident that they
will be pasned the fellows who have
been covertly fighting them, all crawl
into the band wagon. The attack uKn
the weekly pay bill was by amendments
which were intended to destroy the effect
of the bill or defeat its passage by post
ponement. Anyone who is acquainted
with the methods of the legislature
knows that the final vote on a bill is no
indication of the opposition. Joe Gill
personally fought all amendments of
fered tc defeat the weekly pay bill and
succeeded as The Tribuue says in secur
ing its passage.
Mr. Gill had introduced a gross weight
bill in the house, but withdrew it in
favor of tbe senate bill which was
further advanced and had bo.ter pros
pects for passage. Of this bill the Chi
cago Inter-Ocean, which is a Republican
paper not iiuthe habit of giving Demo
crats undeserved credit, said :
"The gross weight mining bill has ex
cellent prospects of becoming a law. In
the bouse this morning Mr. O'Laughlin
moved to suspend the rules and read
the senate bill a Becond time and send
ing it to a third reading. There were
objections, but Mr. Gill of Jackson
made a stirring speech in favor of tak
ing up the bill. 'Until tbe gross weight
bill is passed, he said, 'the scale of
wages between employes and operators
can not be fixed for the ensuing year.
It is a duty we owe every miner in this
state to hasten the passage of this bilL'
"Mr. Gill being chairman of the com
mittee on mines and mining, his speech
carried the day, and a motion to suspend
the rules prevailed. The bill was then
ordered to a third reading, where it will
certainly be reached before adjourn
. Upon this evidence can the Republi
can papers still insist that Joe Gill was
not & valuable friend to laboring men?
The Streator Tribune, an independent
labor paper, had this to say after the
passage of the bill in the house:
"Yesterday the house by a vote of 138
yeas and no nays passed the gross
weight bilL The coal miners under the
law will now be entitled to their chips,
and hereafter if the coal operators at
tempt to destroy the finished work of the
coal miners it will be at his own ex
pense. Great credit is due Representa
tive O'Laughlin for bringing it up and
having it passed out of the regular
order. Representative Gill, chairman
of the committee on mines and mining,
made a neat speech in its behalf. He
said that 30,000 coal miners in the state
awaited the passage of the bill before
making contracts to resume work. Mr.
Gill is a dandy, and deserves the thanks
of every honest man."
The bill providing for and regulating
mine managers was originated and
pushed by Joe Gill's committee. Also
the bill providing for check kweighmen.
These bills were forced ro passage
against the most strenuous efforts of tiie
strongest and wealthiest lobby ever in
Springfield, and if they had not a firm,
vigorous and persistent friend in Joe
Gill, none of them today would be laws.
Once more we propound this conun
drum to Republican editors and orators:
If the removal of all tariff duties from
st'ijar reduced the price of that article,
why will not the removal of the tariff
from other articles of necessity lessen
their cost to the consumer? Mt. Carmel
We cannot sympathize with those
hypocritical journals which object to
the $3."50 tariff which Major McKinley
exacts from his speeches. If there is a
single industry in this country that
needs protection it is Major McKinley's
stereotyped siieeches. Carmi Oourier.
The Canton Republican, which is pub
lished at Canton in this state, can no
longer stand the McKinley idea of tax
ing the workingman for the benefit of the
capitalist, and has come out squarely for
tariff reform and advocates the election
of Cleveland. Fulton Journal.
The Peoria Herald truthfully says
that if the books of the state institutions
of Illinois could be exposed to the tax
payers for just one day the majority of
Altgeld next fall would be 270,000 in
stead of 50,000.
In his speech Governor r'lf er reiterates
the statement made by him two years
ago that the high tax rate of 1888 was
made necessary by the failure of the
preceding legislature to make a sufficient
levy to meet the appropriations. He
knows this statement is false, as anyone
can see who will peruse the session laws
Tbere is only one organization in this
state working for the pardon of the an
archists. That organization has been
incorporated by the secretary of state,
and its president is William Penn
Nixon, editor of Governor Fifer's per
sonal organ in Chicago The Inter
Ocean. The newspapers report that young
Dick Yates only spoke three hours at
Monticello. He must have omitted a
good deal of the speech, as it was origin
ally intended by its author to be good
for at least five hours.
There was a whole volume in one of
the mottoes carried by the iron workers
in the parade a. c -ii-tgo on Labor Day.
The motto read: "Oiistles in Scotland
Bayonets at Homestead."
George S. Willitts, like WM'.elaw
Reid, received his nomination for office
not on account of bis fitness, but because
he has a rich father-in-law.
There has never been an examination
of the books of the state officers or the
state institutions since the Republican
party, has been in power. . Is there a
business man in Illinois who will con
duct his private affairs in that manner?
