amusing l.armony of subdued discord
as is heard in New York, now that
Judge D. Cady Herrick has been nom
inated by the Democrats for governor.
Judge Parker wanted Edward M.
Bhepard, or District Attorney Jerome
nominated for governor in order to
galvanize his campaign into the sem
blance of life.
David B. Hill wanted John B.
Stanchfield, because Stauchlield best

Herrick, who, as Democratic boss of
Albany cotinty, has been a thorn in
his side for years. But, it is said, he
accepted Herrick and put hira in nom
ination on the principle of the sales
man who soid a coat marked S15 for
$10, on doubtful credit, because he
would lose less If the bill was never
paid. Ilill will lose less in 1-Ierrick's
defeat than if he had succeeded in
nominating his friend Stanchfield.
Senator Patrick II. McCarren, the
Brooklyn boss, to whom Judge Parker
owes his nomination, wanted Comp
troller Grout nominated, and for a
time he had Mr. Hill's ostensible sup
port for Grout. Judge l'arker and
Hill went back on McCarren the

Democratic Financial Management.
On the 1st of July, 1892, the last
year of the Harrlsoil administration,
the total bonded debt of the United
States was, in round numbers. $585,000,
000. On the 1st of July, 1897, the last
year of the second Cleveland adminis
tration, the total bonded debt was
$843,000,000, an Increase of $258,000,
000 during four years of perfect peace.
July 1, 1892, the annual interest
charge on the public debt was $22*
893,000. July 1, 1897, it was $34,887,
000, an increase of $11,494,000 during
four years of Democratic administra
A party that cannot administer tl»e
government during a short period of
four years without largely Increasing

Protection has done more for the
American workingnian and farmer
than any other policy carried out by
Republicans. If "protection -is rob
bery," as the Democratic pJatfoiWina».
serts, the only persons "robbed" are
the manufacturers and toilers of Eu
rope. American Avorkingmeni certainly
do not. suffer from protection. They
are the chief beraeflcmrles of the great
est of Republican policies. Without a
protective tariff wages would soon
drop to the European level, which is
from 00 to 100 per cent below the
fate now paid in the United States.
Where now wouki be our finances, our
revenues, our domestic industries and
our foreign trade if the Democratic
party had succeeded in 1890 or in
1900? Where will they all be four

Democrats S««m Determined to Force

Signs increase that the Democratic
leaders are determined to force the
tai'lfl. isRue to tlje front In the presi
dential campaign. While Republicans
swill welcome the discussion of this
question, well knowing that it .is sure
to add many tlnwisands of votes to
their majorities, they oaxinot but re
'gret the selection of the tariff as the
main issue, becaaise of the unfortunate

So far this year the presidential
campaign has not blocked business and
-financial activity. Affairs proceed as
usual. In all lines of business there
is a hopefulness and confidence wliieh
'Is most encouraging. But If the coun
try is to be confro^ifted with another
visitation of tariff revision agitation,
with even a remote chance of suc
cess in the election, there is bound to
be a great slump in fthe industrial
world and a corresponding depression
In all business Interests.

causes which in that year and for

it» Jc*rotectlon "Robbery."
The Democratic assertion that "pro
tection is robbery" that the tariff is
a tax on the American consumer, is
best refuted by examining the effect of
protection on the tin-plate industry.
When the McKinley bill was passed
nine-tenths of all the tin used in this
country was manufactured abroad. To
day the manufacture of tin is one
•.of the most important of our home in
dustries, contributing millions of dol-
lars annually to our national weal*'
But this is the least part of the story,.'
In so far as the tariff Is concerned—

proportion ,as the United States began
to produce "it, and the American con

paid when tin was £n the free list.
