"Fifty years ago," says an exchange,
"the democratic party was tho party of
nullification, twenty-Gve years ago the
party of human slavery, and to day the
party of free trade. It has never im
proved only as it has been forced to do
so. it has Dcen conipeJled to advance in
order to be within objecting distance of
the republican party, but has never taken
the lend in advocacy of a single great
measure now on our statute books."
Hon. John B. Haskins of New York, a
prominent democrat who repudiates the
party of free trade, says: "Our homes,
our industries and our flag must be pro
tected from every harm. This is my
platform, and this year I can best carry it
out by voting for Harrison 'and Morton.
I don't think that even the old Roman can
expect enough influence to prevent the
protection ticket from sweeping every

prised to see Virginia and West Virginia
follow very close behind." Mr. Haskins

can successfully fight her way back

returns safely with his cargo of Siberian

that traffic by water between the ports of

Dr. Gamaleia, a Russian, has recently
discovered a method of innoculation for
cholera, which, if it is what he claims for
it, is certainly a great thing for the hu
man race. The discovery is highly en
dorsed by M. Pasteur, who says, if neces
sary, that he will himself submit to have
an experiment tried upon his own person.
The' New York World has come out
strongly for "boodle." It says: "It is
announced that President Cleveland has
sent his check for $10,000 to the national
democratic committee. If this be true he
has proclaimed himself a perniciously ac
tive partisan. Why should not every
federal office holder contribute to the
campaign fund as well as the president?
Let us have no hyppcrisj'."
The republican national committee re
ports a big demand for campaign docu
ments relating to the tariff. Four years
ago there was but little demand for docu
ments, and the committee sent them out
haphazzard, seeking a market. The
chance shows that the voters want to rend
up on the subject, and the more they read
and think the stronger will be their faith
in protection and the republican party.
The democrats of Nebraska solemnly
adopted a resolution declaring: "We are
opposed to letting our convict labor so as
to bring it into direct competition with
the industrial classes of our state." And
then the democrats went out and witness
ed a parade of the Lincoln democratic
flambeau club, every member of which
was dressed in a uniform made by convict
labor at the Nebraska penitentiary.
During President Arthur's term the
debt was reduced $278,000,000 and?$400,
000,000 was saved to offset it. During
President Cleveland's term the debt has
been reduced $115,000,000 and less than
$13,000,000 saved to offset it, though the
income has been constantly increasing in
volume. In other words the democrats
have spent at least $563,000,000 more
than the republicans who preceded them.
Deducting cash on hand June 30, 1884
from the debt, left it about $1,450,000,000.
Deducting cash now leaves it $1,715,000,-
A few years ago Gen. Alger, at that
time governor of Michigan, gave to Gen.
Sheridan $10,000 in money, upon condi
tion that it should be invested in a life
insurance policy, and that the policy
should be kept up for the benefit of his
widow. The money was invested in a
policy for $25,000, and inquiry since the
death of Gen. Sheridan at the office of the
Connecticut company was answered by a
statement that there had been no default
in the payment upon it. The original in
tention of Gen. Alger was, therefore, car
ried out, and the policy remains to the
benefit of the widow.
Who Are for Protection?
It is significant that the advocates of
protection are business and working men,
bread winners and wage earners, Inen
who earn a living by effort of brain and
muscle, while the leading advocates of
ree trade are the wealthy, mostly south
erners, who have inherited large fortunes
built up by slave labor, and northerners
whose independent property tends to re
move them from sympathy with the

The hope of the country for perpetual-

one of the trusts in America that derives
its being, owes its organization or came
up under the patronage of the. national
government. Every one derives what
ever sanction of law it possesses from a
state government, generally one state, but
sometimes several . The president, there-
ore, certainly should hav known, when
he arraigned trusts in his message to con
gress that congress could not dissolve
them when their charters were from state
egislatures or their organizations . under
state law. It had been confessed by the
democratic house ways and means com
mittee, by Chairman Mills, and every man
bat stood as an advocate of free trade,
that trusts had no possible legal connec
tion with the tariff. The president's
charge that trusts had their origin in the
protective tariff had not a'foot of ground
to stand on, and. was contradicted In every
ine of free tfade experience which the
speaker-had quoted from England. Now
whenrall Wiance Jo ikvertirat the alleged
bribery by which a certain United States
senator, connected with one of the largest
trusts, was charged to- have obtained his
seat' is- past and gone, the democratic
papers can make a loud howl about trusts.
There was a democratic ooDortunity to
get the true inwardness of trusts, but they
shrank from the investigation of bribery,
and both outside and inside the adminis
tration they were determined to have no
restigation. Trusts have no place -in
the national campaign. They are state
issues and the republicans of Maine, at
east, can be depended upon to look after
those in their own state.

of last -week. Mr. Waldon was the pos
sessor of a half section of land in this
county, 12 miles south of Curtis, to where
he had come from his Red Willow county
home for the purpose of putting up hay.
when the accident occured. On the
morning of the above day, he started from
the house with a mowing machine, taking
with him a shot gun in the hope of shoot
ing prarie chickens. After proceeding a
short distance, the jolting of the machine
while crossing a foot-path caused the gun
to fall to the ground, both barrels being
discharged, and their contents entering
the neck of the unfortunate man, killing
him instantly. This accident robs a wife
and eight children of a husband's devotion
and a father's care, and is another-power-:

firearms. Gurtis Record.

She was the merriest before she

thousand trivial accidents and neglected
"small things" take the merriment out of
the lives of young girls and maidens.

peculiar to their sex which take so muck
