Good Times In the South.
No part of this great country is
"catching up" faster than the south. A
correspondent of the St. Louis Globe
Douioerat, who has been making inqui
ries in the various sections, gets a uni
versally cheerful report. Tho hard times
of tho past two years have actully been
beneficial to tho south in tho lessons they
have taught. The farmers on their part
have been forood by the need of cash in
to raising more diversified crops, par
ticularly fruit and vegetables.
Planters also largely increased the
production of pigs and poultry, thus
raising their own meat to a great ex
tent. In Georgia tho early fruit crop
brings into tho state fl, 500,000 of
spending money just when the agricul
turist needs it most to tide him over tho
lirst half of summer.
The country merchants of the south
have also learned a most valuable les
son. Taught by the losses of tho past
two years, thoy havo become more par
ticular in giving credit and much more
esiictiug in demanding cash payments.
They had to do it or go under. The re
sult is that the cash payment system,
the only one that will wear, has be
come more common in tho south than it
ever was before. If it should become
general throughout tho United States,
u will be millions in our pockets.
Bank deposits in Atlanta for the first
six months of this year aro $SOO,000

amount of money is making ready for

of which Atlanta is tho center an in
crease in volume of trade of from 12 to
.'0 per cent. Prices are everywhere low,
however, but this very fact will increase
the volume of trade. Many will take

If the new submarine boat built in
Franco for the Brazilian government
does what is claimed for it, then even

is small in size, but can remain under

depend on tho outer air for ventilation,
for reservoir tubes of oxygen insido the
vessel itself will supply this. As tho

the vessel down into tho sea. An elec

Minnesota has made provision for

whethor farmers' wives and daughtors

their special lines of work. The result
was most encouraging. There wore
many students, in age ranging from 16

There are hundreds of millions of
dollars in Europe awaiting investment.
Just so soon as the United States can
convince tho owners of this money that
her railroads are getting out of the

business men strictly honest, capable,
and men of their word, then the gold of
Europe will begin to flow to this coun
try so fast that we shall not know what
to do with it.

Results of the Wise Policy of the Demo

"The conviction is gaining ground
throughout the iron trade," says The
Iron Age of New York, tho official or-
?an of the American Iron and Steel as
jociat ion, "that the presont high level
, it prices is not only going to hold its
jwn, but that even better flnros are
bound to rule." This is a ccmpJato and
romprehensive answer to tb calamity
j bowlers who aro trying to cast doubt
on the permanency of tho business im
provement. An interesting feature in tho indus-
trial situation is the faot that tho rail
roads have become active buyers. The
Iron Ago adds, "It is clear that rolling
stock is being contracted fox more ffeo
j ly, and it may bo noted that some pretty
i fair orders for locomotives for South
! Amorica havo been given out. " So far
I as tho domestic orders for rolling stock

Tho fact is that a moro satisfactory
business situation could hardly be im
agined thau that which now exists. The
revenues aro increasing, tho treasury
; condition improving and public confi
dence is returning. These facts can havo
! ao other result than an enduring btisi
; aoss activity, and hopes of prosperity
hold out in early summer will bo moro
than fulfilled before tho snow flies. Th'.a
i is the result of tho wise policy of tho
Democratic party, and by the time tho

What the Public Han Gained by the Change
) In Ecouoniic Policy.
Since tho first of January the value of
. 'en railroad properties have advanced
; (11,970,000, says the Kansas City
Times. That is, the difference between
the current prico of tho stocks in those
roads now, as compared with six mouths
igo, shows that vast difference. In all
tho corporation property in tho country
the advance during the time would bo
beyond calculation. Other property is
equally improved.
, This is the gain to tho public because
nf the change in economic policy. Tho
i MeKinley law taxed tho people without
yielding revenue and prostrated indus
try in the name of protection. Its evil
inlluenco became apparent almost as
loou as it went into operation. Tho
repeal of that law was practically tho
aiieellaliou of a mortgage on the indus
tries of the country. Tho iucreaso in
values is the result.
In the l.tee of these facts it. is surpris
ing that them aro idiots who advocate
rc.-t or:;, u of tho ruinous policy. Iu
;.t her wo-.ds, there are men who pre
tend to think that the country would he
benefited by there enactment of the Me
Kinley law, or something like it. H -.r
they are insincere in this. They might
be individually benefited iu one way ov
mother, but it is certain that no com
munity is enriched by being robbi d.
The Tartv of Lincoln Han Hccor.ie
Tool of Trusts ami Corporations.
Governor Altgeld has plainly shown
to the people of Illinois that the Repub
lican party of that state is disqualified
from legislating properly in the inter
est of the general welfare, says tho St.
Louis Post -Dispatch. If more evidence
were needed, tho party itself litis sup-
: plied it in the results of the last regular
.md extra sessions of the legislature.
' The governor has said that from first
to last the Republican majority in both
houses was dominated by corporate and
other selfish influences, and it is a matter
.if public notoriety that corruption
stalked through the deliberations of that
body. The Republican party, in the
langnagc of the governor, is no longer
the party of Lincoln, but is an organi-
! zation devoted to tho interests of trusts
! and corporations and definitely neglect
ful of the welfare of the common people.
Awkwnrd Facts For Protectionists.
The voluntary wage advances now
pmbraee (iS3 firms and companies and
514,000 employees. This estimate does
1 not include an unquestionably large
! number of smaller concerns which have
increased the pay of their employees
without public mention. "This demon
stration of better times is quite unprec
edented," says a contemporary with
Republican leanings, "and is proving a
most awkward fact for tho politicians
whose fortunes are embarked on a sea
of calamity. " Philadelphia Record.

There is good method in the madness
With which tho Republican press attacks
the wool schedule of the senate tariff
act. It is excellent tactics. It is mass
ing tho troops on tho broken center. It
is tho "6titch in time" that may "save
nino. " It is a vain attempt to retrieve
an irretrievable blunder by the srotoc
tionists that dominated tho senate So
we have tho assault all along tho line.
We aro gravely told that tho more appre
hension of untaxed imports of wool sent
millions of domestic sheep to the sham
bles, ouo reckless paper stating their
number at over 60,000,000. Others,
more cautions, estimate that the slaugh
ter has diminshed the home olip over
60,000,000 pounds. Doloful, . pathetio
pictures are drawn by these word artists
of tho miserable condition to whioh the
merely impending freedom of the fleeces
reduced the poor American farmer.
Then the farmers have been given
comparative figures showing the impor
tations of foreign wool "before and aft
er" tho blow foil on tho flocks. Only
55,000,000 pounds of wool came from
pauper sheep in 1S!)4, as compared with
some 200,000,000 pounds in 1895. Tljat
imports fell off in anticipation of there
moval of tho tax ; that the imports of
1893 were 173,000,000 pounds; of 1892,
148,000,000 thesoaro immaterial mat
ters, not pertinent to tho discussion, and
therefore omitted by them. That also is
excellent tactics. Leave to your oppo
nent tho discovery of your weak points.
Then we have had stout denials of any
advance in tho prico of domestic wool
Prices today aro put alongside those of
two or three years ago to establish this.
Tho omission to mako the prices of
last year, while wool was still under
tho wing of its guardian angel, the ba
sis of comparison, is another bit of
adroit fencing. Interviews with woolen
manufacturers aro given in which thoy
assert that free wool is not helpful to
them. And so, ono way or another, tho
assault is fiercely inado and persistently
kept. up.
This, we repeat, is good tactics. Free
wool breaks tho center of the whole pro
tective policy. It strikes out tho key
stone of tho arch. If tho long struggle
since ISnT had resulted in nothing moro
than this, tho end justified tho effort. It
opens a broach in tho wall through
which tho hosts of commercial freedom
will press. It is to t'- repairing of tho
breach that the enemy aro bending their
efforts. The protectionists have hereto

ger that tho tanner will havo tho wool

Then will conio the turn of tho manu
facturer of woolens. Tho farmer whose
wool meets, liko all his other commodi

Hero is where tho manufacturer scents
danger to himself. Ho is satisfied with
present arrangements that give him
from 40 to 50 per cent of protection
from competition, but ho sees that if
tho farmers turn against him, now that
the partnership is dissolved, it is all
over with him. When woolens aro as
free as wool, tho manufacturers, too,
will join tho growing hosts of commer
cial freedom to get their necessaries of
life and manufacture untaxed. And thus
tho movement will spread from class to
class. It is this that our opponents see,
and it is to prevent this that they are
