In Congressman Dingley's own town is the great Androscoggln mill corpora? tion, whose operatives arc now strik? ing against a cut of wages. Too sit? uation is no worse in Lewiston than in a good many other places; it is not so bad as some others. But how is Mr. Ding-ley to explain to ,his constituents the failure of his tariff to bring them prosperity and increase their earnings'.' Is he willing to accept a ten per cent, cut-down as the measure of "Dingley wages?"?Bos-ton Post. It seems a little unfair to hold Mr. Dingl-y's measure responsible for some? thing with which it has absolutely nothing to do. The Republicans have been parading that old .theory to the effect that a high tariff increases weges, and a number of worfclngmen, especial? ly through tlie Now England States, have manifested their enthusiastic de? votion to 'the principle. The strike in the 'New England mills against the pro? posed reduction or 10 per cent, in wag s s.hould: furnish conclusive proof, even to those who live in a stronghold of protection, yf the fallacy of the princi? ples which they have espouse,i in the ?ast. The question of wages is deter ' mined by the law of supply and de? mand, or by other considerations en- I tirely distinct from .the tariff or other legislation. The cotton manufacturers of New England have been forced to reduce'the wages of their -employees be? cause business conditions over which they have absolutely mo control nave made it impossible for them to compete ?with manufacturers at more favored points. This is the whole matter in a nutshell, and'the sooner the working-men of the country stop paying attention to the blatant demagogue who cries "protec? tion and high wages," the better it will be for them and the coun try. Of course the demagogue 'may be sincere and may believe that he is espousing a wise theory, but sincerity is not al? ways a proof wisdom. /Whether the people would choose bet "''ter Senators than do the Legislature.* may be determined by asking if -the people choose better Governors; than the Legislatures choose Senators. We think not.?Louisville Post. Another way of arriving at the same conclusion might be by arguing that it the people cannot be trusted to elect ?legislators who Will elect good Senators neither can they be expected to be more fotunate in their selection -in the case of the higher office. This, however, by nu means disposes of the question. It is the "deadlocks" and charges of bri? bery and eoruption which seem to be Inseparable from almost every senato? rial contest which has a tendency to make the people weary of tiie present system. We presume that Chicago Po-puKst paiper which 'is to have one hundred ed? itors Is trying Co compete with the *a uemed Congressional Record: A feud1 in Kentucky ?ilwnys displays many of the fcaturee of an c-pWemic.?
