Shall ire Say DoUarless One Year
of Cleveland and the Wilson Bill.
To the Editor of the Joubhal AMD Couaua:
Permit me to make an enquiry and per
haps some democratic brother can give the
needed light! Yesterday marked one year
of Cleveland with the Wilson bill annexed,
It was the first anniversary of complete
democratic rule. In Cleveland's first term
the democrats had not tha power; a re
publican congress stood as s bulwark for
the protection of American Industries.
This time It was out and out democratic
rule with a free trade and tariff for reve
nue only party, in power. All appeals for
protection for American industries and
the Amerloan worklngmen fall unheeded
noon the dominant party In power. It
looks dismal for American industries.
Now, my good demooratio brother, what
shall we do now that the first anniversary
of Cleveland with a demooratio congress
and free trade polloy has oome.
Shall we fltns the blessed old flag over
our factories at mast head, or shall we put
it at half-mast, or shall it be hoisted as a
flag of distress! I, as a manufacturer, ask
this simDie Question. ,
I have been caret nlly scanning the dem
ocratic papers to see what they propose to
do by way of a celebration and recognition
of Cleveland and free trade and coining a
Here we are, brethern, with industries
all flattened ont all over the country,
Here we are with shops almost everywhere
working on reduced time and with wages
lessened in order to pnt the Amerloan
worklngmen on a level in wages with his
foreign competitors for the Amerloan mar
ket In order that home Industries msy
struggle along end exist.
Here we are, men and brethren, with
greatly rednced earnings on all our great
railways, and small ones too, with organ
ized charities all over the country taxed
to their utmost to feed the starving and
cloth the naked and all on account of this
dreadful policy of striking down horns in
dustries. How shall we celebrate this anniversary!

What Police Officers Say.
The action of the Law and Order league
in reference to the police force gives much
satisfaction to many of the old and well
known sterling polioe officers. They ex
press their gratification in words of hearty
satisfaction, saying the stirring up In pro-
gross can but be benefioial to the force and
strikes a blow in behalf of old and tried
officers who are relegated to "frog beats"
while new men who happen to "have a
pull" with new commissioners through
ward politics or otherwise are given some
of the bast beats in the city without the
requisite qualification therefor. It grates
on tue old ana tried officers to see new,
green men exalted over them, and such fa
voritism acts as a damper. The officers
farther say, thanks to Dr. Smyth for his
aotion, a wholesome influence is being ex
erted that must tell In behalf of faithful
men who ask for nothing and get nothing,
but who neverthaless are noted for doing

by any other actor. Critics agree that his
expressions of joy, sorrow, surprise and
anger are most delioately and distinctly

lightfully natural. The supporting com

mon in itsalf. Every detail is a postulate;
every word a lesson. The moral of the
story is the uplifting of a human life. Two
elements, the human and the dlvjne, are
prominent in the work." After giving an
interesting description of Jericho, the "gar
den oity," where the event narrated in the
verses transpired, and a description of the
inhabitants of the place, the speaker drew
a graphio picture of the Nazarene, whose
great work was then nearing its comple
tion, and of the desire of the multitudes to
see him. and lnoluded in the throng was

memory Jesus is passing by. Will yon not
oome to Him and abide with Him."

the rioh treat in store for that evening the
largest hall in the olty would be filled.
