St. PAUL, Sept. 5.—The Dally Nows says: The St. Paul and Duluth is now, virtually, part and parcel of the .Stickney system, This is not generally known, lmt it is known ljy some, holieved by others, and lias been surmised by many who have demonstrated the truth of the surmise by the putting of two and two together and supporting the result by well founded reasoning. The Kansas City lines have been sadly in need of a northern outlet, in order to compete with the Omaha, for Northern business, while the Duluth road has been equally in need of a Southwestern line. Each of these corporations some time ago surveyed lines into the territory covered by the other, both of which were subse quently dropped. Somo time since inter nal dissentions became manifest in the management of the Duluth road, and re sulted in the common stockholders elect ing the officers. Mr. Stickney saw his chance and secured sufficient stock to put him in control of the road. He has placed Capt. Hayes, of Now York, in the president's chair, which was followed by the resignation of Vice President Fisher, and the appointment of E. L. Dudley,an other Kansas City employe, in his place. The St. Paul and Duluth, therefore, while running under its own colors, is under Mr. Stickney's control, and will figure hereafter as the Northwestern out let of the Stickney system, while the Kansas City route will altord a elianuel for the St. Paul and Duluth's south and west bound traffic. MINNEAPOLIS MASONIC TEMPLE. For a North Dakota Delegate.

Stearns, [Coudease from Lesson Helper Quarterly, bv pubUshcr'] °f Moses and Joshua and Gideon, to Jeremiah anil tho prophets, and tho last word of Jesus to the apostles was simply "I am with you." 10. "Stono them with stones." So they would havo dono to Moses (Ex. xvii, 4) so they were ready to do. to Christ (John viii, 09 x, 31) so they did to Stephen and Paul (Acts vii. 59 xiv, 19). Truth is never pop ular: "I hato him," said Ahab of Micaiah, tho prophet "put him in prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction" (II Chron. xviii, 7, 26). So thoso who stand for the truth will find hatred even in our day from thoso who ajro of the world. The Free Traders' Transparent Scheme. "Why not tell tho real truth and de clare that wo not only favor tarifi re vision, but that wo consider it only a step toward tho abolition of tho entiro tariff system?" is tho question asked by The Democrat, a new campaign paper pub lished in this city. This inquiry would bo moro pertinent if tho Mills bill had not already given away the schema by removing tho protection from 100 Ameri can industries and making up the average to 40 per cent, by unholy rates levied on zzr^r, rice and other articles of nscsswy food.— Now York Tribune. LABOR TO THE FRONT. THE ARMY OF WORKINGMEN MUST STRIKE AT DEMOCRACY. The Battlo Is for a Fair Count of Each Alan's Vote, and Protection at tho Polls of Every Rightful Voter—^Tho Solid South, S" IIoCEman' Philadelphia, This is tho continuation of our last lessou, find shows tho sad results of unbelief. Jeho "v ah had delivered them from tho power and bondage of Pharaoh had mado a way. for them through tho Red sea had fed them with food from heaven day by day had brought, Ibem water out of tho rock had j-rhen Uiom flesh to eat in abundance bad fou .',t for them against Amalek and con quered hud spoken to them from tho burn ing mountain had shown them his great lovo and power in so many ways and had conio to dwell visibly among thom in the tab ernacle erected for Him in their midst tho pillar of cloud aud of toe, symbol of His presence, was visible to all the millions of Israel, and yet theso ten unbolieving rulers in Israel speak of tho strength of tho sons of Anak as an obstacle too formidable to bo overcome. Was there ever such unbelief and such utter forgetfulness of a present almighty Rod? Let us see. Some one who reads this has been told of a (Saviour who will givo victory over every besetting sin aud cause tho weakest aud most unworthy to livo even here a lifo of rest and peace and joy and not only so, but you havo seen it proved in somo measure in tho lives of some who are known to you. It is a good land they havo found, and you know it. But to your eyes there are great difficulties in the way of your gotting there, and you say: "I am not able, it is not for me." Now, what is that but just tho language of theso ton faithless rulers? 1. "All tho congregation cried," but it was neither a cry of victory nor a cry for help it was a cry of despair, because they saw no helper, had no faith in God. Contrast tho cry of Abi jab, and Asa, and Jehoshaphat. and tho speedy answers granted to them (II Chon. xiii, 14 xiv, 11 xviii, SI), and be of good courage. ". "And all murmured." In cli. xii, it was Miriam and Aaron speaking against Moses now it is all Israol murmuring against Moses and Aaron. "They despised the pleit sant land they believed not His word but murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto tho voice of tho Lord." (Ps. cvi, 24-25.) They had murmured at Mazah and' in tho wilderness of sin (Ex. xv, 24 xvi, 1-10), and all these murmurings were against the Lord (Ex., xvi, 8), for all that is dons to or for a servant of t)io Lord Ho counts as done to himself. (Luke x, 10.) Tho lovo of God which brought them out of Egypt was bring ing them, in the best and kindest way, toa glorious inheritance, but they despised it and Him, and murmured and complained. 3, 4. "Itoturn into Egypt." The wish for death was twico repeated in v. 2 tho return toE-ypt is twico suggested in these vorses. At iloreb they made a calf and worshiped it instead of God now they want a human captain instead of "God Himself, who was with them as their captain." (II Chron. xiii, 12.) Nehomiah says that "in their rebellion they appointed a captain to return to their bondage." (Neh. ix, 17.) Oh, what sin and rebellion on tho part of man, what long suf fering and lovo and patience on the part of God. This God is Our God we are liko Israol, and all theso things aro written for our learning. Paul says: "I count all things but loss for tho excellency of tho knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord forgotting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which aro before, I press toward the mark for the prizo of tho l'i£h calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Phil, iii, S, 13,14). How few there are like Paul, how many like Lot's wife, who though es caped from Sodom left her hoart there, and looked back. "Jesus said no man, having put his hand to tho plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God (Isa. ix, 62) so tliese murmurers could mot enter in because of uilbelief. but .their carcases foil' in the wilderness." (Hcb. iii, 19 Num. xiv, 27-29). 6. "Moses and Aaron fell on their faces." See also xvi, 4, 22, 45 xx, 0. This was tho only thing to do in such a case cry unto God and leave them to Him. How wonder ful" that God will let us plead with Him and be moved by our pleading. See Abraham pleading for Sodom and tho Lord promising to spare the city if1 ten righteous persons could be foui}d'i& it. (Gen. xviii, 23-32.) See Moses on this occasion, hear his prayer in vs. 13-19, and noto the answer in v. 20. Moses pleads not for himself, nor for his glory, but ho is jealous for tho Lord and for tho glory of His name. Tho Lord heard and pardoned, yet in after days there came a timo when neither tho prayers of a Moses nor a Samuel could have prevailed for them (Jer. xv, 1), nor tho righteousness of Noah, Daniel and Job havo saved them(Ezck. xiv, 14-20). "Ho that being often reproved, hard eneth his n?ck, shall suddenly be destroyed, aud that without remedy" (Prov. xix, 1). 0. "Joshua and Caleb rent their clothes." Caleb had spoken before (xiii, iiO), but now Joshua joins him in faithful taitimony, and theso aro tho only two of all the thou sands in Israel who were over twenty years «f age when they left Egypt who entered the good land (vs. 30, 38). God does always honor thoso who havo faith in him. 7,8. "An exceeding good laud.'1 Even tho unbelievers had to confess that (xiii, 27) but hear further theso two faithful ones: "If tho Lord delight in us, Ho will bring us into this land and'givo it us." They do not boast of auy power or wisdom abovo tho other ten, but testify to tho power of tho Lord, i'l labored more abundantly than* they all," says Paul, "yet not I, but tho grace of God which was with me." "He that glorieth, let him.glory in tho Lord." (I Cor. xv, 10 i, 81.) If any ask, How can tho Lord tako de light in such as wo are? tho answer is, "The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear Him, in thoso that hope in His morcy." (Ps. cslvii, 11.) "The Lord taketh pleasure in His people He will beautify tho meek with salvation." (Ps cxlix, 4.) Aud as to victory lover all enemies, "This is tho victory that overcomcth tho world,'even our faith," (I John v, 4.) "Tho battlo is not ours, but •God's." (II Chron. xs, 15.) 9., "Rebel not against the Lord." "Fear not the people," "tho Lord is with us." Con fidence in and obedienco to God, seeing no one but Jesus only this would give perfect rest and peace and constant victory. To Tho working-men of America, said Mr. Blaine, cannot be placed upon the Euro pean level without their own consent. They have the richt of suffrage, and can vote to lessen tneir own opportunities and reduce their own wages. Capital takes good caro of itself. The ocean is less than a week's journey wide nowadays, and laws of protection of yearly increasing importance. The manufacturers care for themselves always. They have inside news and are apt at smart turns, and must find a market according to their surroundings. Will the American workingmen, informed, enlightened, armed and equipped with equal rights, do less for themselves and consent to tho overthrow of the protec tive laws? This, in Mr. Blaine's judgment, is the precise question that the Cleveland ad ministration places before the people, and anything that tends to obscure it weakens the case of those who protect the country by tho restoration of tho friends of the United States to power. Mr. Blaine's programme is, in a word, to ,put labor—votes of the labor army themselves for themselves—to tho front, and carry tho -whole field by striking the I Democratic lino at its weakest point with massed columns of the men of labor whose instinct, as well as education, warns them that the day has come when, for their own salte, they must be practi cal politicians. This is according to thd I military maxim that the way to win a battle is to find the right spot to make the fight, and get there first with more men than tho enemy has: Tho point is well taken, and consent ing to it, we contend that it is not thrown into obscurity—not overshadowed but illuminated—by impressing upon the people the facts that we array and enu merate in this order:, 1. That if all tho workingmen in this country had freely voted and their votes had been fairly counted according to the constitution of the United States four years ago, James G. Blaine would have had a popular majority for president of tho United States of at least half a mil lion, and ho would have been chosen officially by a majority of more than fifty electoral votes. 2. If all the workingmen of this coun try could freely vote and have their votes fairly counted in November next, there would not be a film of doubt of the elec tion of Harrison arid Morton or of tho pos session by the Republican party of both houses of congress after the 4th of March next. It is the disfranchisement of black Republicans in national affairs after their emancipation and enumeration—the es tablishment of casto rule from Pennsylva nia to Mexico, with the exception of a few congressional districts—that makes the Mills bill possible, and provides tho possi bility of the continued defeat of the will of tho peoplo at large. 8. The menacing meddling with the de fensive system—that protects our indus tries through a tariff that discriminates in our own favor—originates in that sec tion and those states where class govern ment is established where labor is sub ordinated and degraded where the latest and most important provisions of the Constitution are nullified where public opinion i.s not formed by freedom of speech where manhood suffrage is not sustained, aud where it is the popular teaching that raising raw products for exportation is the only reputable employ ment of "the lords of creation." In other terms, tho Mills bill is representative of communities that aro not advanced in the arts of prosperity and comfort aud the mechauteal appliances that distinguish tho latest development of our civilization. 4. The Democratic majority in tho house is made up from the southern dis tricts, in which there are enumerated, for tho purposes of representation and dis franchised, the Republican majorities. In nineteen of tho districts no Republican candidates aro permitted to run. The representatives of every one of these districts, where the Republican ma jorities aro intimidated, and counted as cattle to increaso the voting power of their masters—or, if you prefer the term, herdsmen—were present and voted for the Mills bill. That measure, therefore, be comes tho business expression of the polit ical power gained in tlio south by the nul lification, which amounts to tho abolish ment of tho war amendments to tho con stitution. It is tho solid south holding tho house unconstitutionally that threatens the pro tective system with revision by hostile hands, and the message of President Cleveland, made part of tho Democratic platform, is in precise accord with the Confederate constitution and the Confed erates had in tho days when they were trying their memorable experiment of Democratic government, tho sympathy and support of the British in their efforts to return substantially to the old colonial system—and the Democratic party now enjoys the same significant and sympa thetic alliance. The solid south has British countenance in assailing tho man ufacturing industries of the more highly developed parts of tho south, as the Southern Confederacy had it when war ring to destroy the Uniou of the states. There would bo no sectional politics in this country if manhood suffrage were fully established. Tho southern trouble is government by a class. Wo have the old slave power in a new shape, but it is not less offensive than of old. Will it offend any if we ask: Why are there twice as many votes cast for con gressmen in Hamilton county as in the whole state of Georgia? Georgia has ten members of tlio house, and we have two from this county. Here is the penalty of the inequality of citi zens. If it were not for the existence of a ruling class stronger than the constitu tion in the south, the tariff would not be threatened, the higher would not bo at tacked by tho lower civilization on this continent in that form we should not be looking at tho spectacle of the exclusion of Dakota—because thero area hundred thousand Republican votes there—to pro vent tho narrowing of the margin by which southern fraud grasps national power, aud the attemptod dictatorship of representatives of Texas and Arkansas in legislation hostile to tho industries in Pennsylvania, Now Jersey, New York and New England. We cannot escape from the solid south by ignoring it. We must end it by breaking it.—Cincinnati Com mercial Gazette.

In illustration of tho advances made in this country under a protective tariff we said on Saturday that the gross value of manufactures increased, from 1850 to 1880, 800 per cent, while population in creased only 110 per cent, and the farm acreage 78 per cent. The figures were too small the net value of the products of manufacture increased over 800 per cent., the gross value showing again of 437 per cent. But as the value increased—al though the prices of products have low ered—the wages of the workers have gone up. Although tho prices of manufactured articles are lower, so that you can buy a handsaw or a set of dishes much cheaper than yon could thirty years ago, wages havo gone up in.tho meantime, because the tariff has enabled us to luako so many articles, having command of a large home market, that tho returns havo been large. In the thirty year? between 1850 and 1880 wo find that' the amount of wages paid has gone up over 800 per cent., while tho number of hands employed has in creased only 185 per cent. "This means that the average wages are nearly 60 per cent, higher now than they woi-o thirty years ago. This increase, remember, has been right in tho face of some of the most discouraging conditions possible. During those years wo havo had the greatest immigration knov.-u ia the world's history. Such an influx of labor, by it self, would undoubtedly tend to lower wages. The amount of "work to be done remaining tho samo, and, the prices ob tained for tlio product of the work not rising, an increase in the number of workers is bound to bring down tno share of each. But a protec tive tariff has mado it possible that the amount of work should bo increased more rapidly than the number of work ers, even while the prices obtained for the product wore falling and so the share of each worker has been decidedly increased. Instead of being diminished, as it must havo been under any tariff that did not en courage the storting of new industries and the continuance of thoso already started. In !*.850 about one million factory laborers earned nearly $237,. 000,000—about §240 apieco. In 1880 there wcro not quite two and three-quar ter millions of laborers in manufactures, and they were paid in wages nearly $950, 000,000, or about $850 a piece. This re markable fact of the wages .and the out put increasing together, while the prices of the products of the factories were de creasing, it is worth thinking about. Without a tariff, and a pretty high tariff, new industries certainly could not havo started and without the securing of tho home market by a continuance of that ta riff, certainly our manufacturers could not have afforded to raiso the wages of thoir employes instead of lowering them to the European standard.—New York Mail and Express. An Object JLesfion* Tho Pall Mall Gazette of July 25 con tains tlio following: "A Rise in tiie Phice op COMPOUND EXTHACT Tin.—The passing by the United States house of representatives of the Mills tariff bill, which places tin plate3 on the free list, has led to a sharp rise in the price of tin. Yesterday Strait3 touched £89 7s. 6d. cash, and £89 15s. three months. This i3 an advance of from £14 to £15 on the figures quoted recently. If the senate passes tho bill in its present form, tin will command higher prices than have ruled of late, and a great impetus will be given to an important branch of. manu facture in this country." This is plain business. There is no ob scurity. The passage of the Mills bill by one house puts up the price of tin in Eng land. We are to lose the revenue on tin —but do not get plates cheaper. This is a sample iact—an object lesson. Study t-—Cincinnati Commercial Gazette. Republicanism In jfow England. If present appearances are not deceptive thero is a genuine revival of Republican spirit and enthusiasm this year in New England. In the campaign of 1884 the Republican majority was cut down heav ily in Massachusetts, and, as everybody knows, the mugwumps succeeded in help ing the Democrats carry Connecticut for Cleveland. Now, however, the old fash ioned strength and spirit of the Republi can organization manifest themselves on all sides. Everything betokens victory in Connecticut and splendid majorities in the other New England states.—Cfcyfe land Leader. Cleveland's Friends Bolting His Ticket. One of the remarkable features of the bolting this year is that the bolters are not only Democrats, but in many casts formerly personal friends of President Cleveland. E. C. Robbins, a prominent lawyer and Democrat of Buffalo, is one of the latter. He says: "It is the duty of protectionist Democrats to administer such a rebuke to Cleveland and his pres ent advisers that no one will ever again try to identify the Democracy with the doctrine of free trade."—Ohio State Jour nal. Camilla Sympathizes with Cleveland. Tho residents of British America are waiuing uuxiously for a time when the Democratic policy shall go into effect. A Winnipeg paper says: "It is a matter of the greatest importance that the Manitoba aud northwest farmer should have free trade with the United States in wheat." It must bo a matter of great regret to Mr. Cleveland that the vote of Canada and the S'f Manufacture of Cliineso Cosh. A largo number aro engaged in molding, casting and finishing the "cash" used as coin all over China—Mexican dollars and Syceo silver being used in largo trans actions. Tho cash aro made from an alloy of copper and zinc, nearly the same as the jvell known Muntz metal and it takes about 1,000 of them to answer as chango for a dollar, so minuto and low do prices run in this country, of which I will only fho ive one instance. Tho faro for crossing ferry on the Peiho was only two cash, or one-fifth of a cent.—Scientific American. rovinces cannot be counted in November, his popularity in those regions there is uo question.—Indianapolis Journal. The Dutv Is Not Added to Tho Cost. Onr present Democratic administration has proven that the amount of duty levied upon foreign merchandise is not added to the cost of the articlo in this country. If the duty on tho 2,000 woolen blankets had been added to the price of those recently offered to our government by the home producer they would have cost $7 520. But our manufacturers' offered thff for $0,130, or $2,400 less than they/ ould havo cost if the full duty had be/ dded to tho soiling price.—Cleveland/ er.
