In the Union of last week we notice
our non-partisan friend signing himself
X, elaborating yery exteustveiy on re
publicanism. The consistency of bis
communication is at variance with fact).
Why a non-partisan, simply occupying
the position of on onlooker should be
come so radical, occupying two-thirds f
bis column communication ic praising
and strenuously advocating republican
ism mystifies us. We are inclined to
draw the inference he is laboring under a
delusion of mastodonic proportions. He
certainly deceives himself or bis thoughts
and actions are not governed by reason
and intellectuality. Anything appealing
to a fair minded reasoner must of cec
essity be consistent. Inconsistency anl
sound legitimate reasoning are diametri
cally opposed. He says that if numbers
and enthusiasm indicate success, tbe re
publican rally was a great success. Let
us correct this onlooker. Noise, small
boys and indecency do not indicate suc
cess. Morality, sound reasoning and in
telligent voters insure sooner or later
success. He asks who ever
heard of a democrat being
pleased with heariog a republican
speech. We ask this non-partisan the
same question reversed , and further ask
him which acted tbe most gentlemanly,
R or D. When Guy Scott addressed our
citizen's the meeting was continuously
disturbed. Facts are gratifying to the
ears of some, and tbe re
publican element of meeting
aimed to do their utmost to dis
turb the meeting by getting
upon leaving tbe meeting, and among
this class was none, other than our
onlooker ' X". But we realize facts, and
B' und doctrine does not answer as food
for all. "There are none so deaf as those
who refuse o bear, and none so blind as
those wbo will not see." He flatters
himself of having called forth an editor
ial in the republican organ Perhaps
such is flittering, (but we, not I forber )
We thouroughly understand be is an out
and out republican. His declaration is
superfluous, and he clearly sees if de
mocracy triumphs tbe country is in great
peril, and he will stenuously work for
the republican party. He does not tbink
four years of democrat rule, would en
tirely Tuin us. Some folks are ruined
through lack of business tactics and dis
cretion and no: due to party rule. He
is is a believer in ultimate tru b his is a
recent addition to his storehouse of that.
He cites in his article, a young man.
August Lindqnist by name, wbo some 20
years ago movtd west, and is now worth
$15,000 or $25,000. notwithstanding bigo
tariff. Why does be not mention Carne
gie? and why not mention the innumera
ble that have gone west and returned
penniless. He need not even go west
to find farms well stocked and paid for,
who are today in straitened circumstances
If this protection is such a glorious thing,
why does it not protect all and not only
the few? We tbink "X's" argr.ment is
fallacious in tbe extreme. What is good
for the goose should not be injurious to
tbe gander. We must admit many west
ern farmers have become well-to-do, but
emphatically deny it is due to the pro
tective system. We would like to have
tbe Union correspondent show us how
and wherein the farmer is protected.
Give us a few facts and not fallacies.
We respect this gentleman, and accord
him due respect, out we earnestly hope
his articles in the future will be more
consistent. Flavor tbem with good
sound facts and argument, and not be too
partisan and radical, for he will find good
citizens even among democrats.

Miss Luella J. to Frederick 'W. Rinck.
Tbe interior of the home had been taste
fully adorned with the season's autumnal
foliage, smilax and roses predominating
in tbe decorations. Promptly at 8
o'clock Mendelssohn's grand wedding
march was struck up by Miss May Brady
at tbe piano, to th3 sweet strains of
which the bridal pirty entered the parlor.
It was preceded by Mister Freddy Shneit

The True Faith Expounded.
Never lias a jrreat party, .ntent upon
the promotion of rijjht and justice, had
better incentive for ciTort than is now
presented to ns. Tnrninjr our eyes to
the plain lieoj-le of the land we see them
burdened jus consumers with a tariff sys
tem that unjustly and relentlessly de
mands from thoni in the purchase of tb
necessaries and comforts of iife an
amount scarcely met by the waires of
hard and steady toil, while the exactions
thus wrung from them build np and in
crease the fortunes of those for whose
benefit the injustice is perpetuated.
We see the fanner listening to a de
lusive story that fills his mind with ad
vantage, while his pocket is robbed by
the stealthy hand of high protection.
Our workingmen are still told the tale,
oft repeated in spite of its demonstrated
falsity, that the existing protective tariff
is a boon to them, and that under its
beneficent operation their wages must
increase while as they listen scenes are
enacted in the very abiding place of
high protection that mock the hopes of
toil and attest the tender mercy the
workingman receives from those made
seltisli and sordid by unjust govern
We oppose earnestly and stubbornly
the theory upon which our opponents
seek to justify and uphold tariff laws.

It seems to us that, under the circmn

the people of . this country wish for is
something actual and substantial, an
