Republican commends the followingwordsdelivored by Rev. Richard Carroll (colored) to his flock: "I see no good for you in politics, but I eee plenty of barm. Tin- colored pop? ulation g.t excited every four yeans find many leave the farm to sit around and wait for an office. Some have not ?wwked sine.- McKinley wasunado Pres? ident, and their fain lies are approach 'mg starvation. Politics have ruined us and put us back many years." This is excellent advice, not only for the colored people but for.a 'number of ncs, too. There are many white McKinley was elected becauBe they have been expecting to he made ??min? isters to Dahomey," or to secure sonve i?ther position under the administration. "Politics has ruined" a number of col? ored men, but a imuch larger host of while (men have wrecked their for? tunes and lives upon the sunken rocks of (political ambition. The man who ac? cepts a position In the public service because his natural gifts lit him for it. and 'because lie hears tin- dii-ti'net call of duty to country and fellow-man, is n patriot and deserves all honor and praise. The'man who goes into politics for a. living or as t'he result of an ex? aggerated craniafl development is usual? ly a knave or a fool. 'England and Russia seem dispose.! to work up a little couiiter-a.tiracti'on. AMERICVN LA I a >R. In reiferring to the opportumlity pre? sented for a profitable investment in t'he shipbuilding industry in New York state, Mr. Andrew Carnegie, win. has had experience enough to justify the presumption that he knows what he is talking about, says: ?The price paid for steel by British andiGrman shipyards are so much h.sli? er than shipbuilders in New y.irk would be required p. pay tin- difference would make in' itself an excellent profit. Plates are worth about $22 or $23 in New York. The quoted price ut Glasgow is nearly $30. other prices are in porportlion, tend all the woodwork of ships is also tmuiah cheaper with us. "If a yard were built today with the newest atopl'lonees the total cost of la? bor, even at much higher wages, would be less than in any shipyard 1 know .if. either in Great Britain or Germany." 'Aside from the (Important announce ment that the United States .-an pro? duce steel so much cheaper than its chief competitor, tills statement con? tains a just and w.-ll deserved tribute to the American' workman, who, while receiving the highest -wages of any of the sons of toil, furn'tehies th.- cheapest lab.r in the world. The American workmen are the best in the w..r!.l because they are stimu? lated to put forth their best efforts through a desire to rise t.. a higher pos? ition in the world. The doors of caste, and royalty are not Closed ngain-t them and ambition becomes the iadd ;r which they reach the highest perfect! in their chosen trades. Cheap labor, aft.-r all, is usually t most expensive in -the end. According to statistics, the Am.-ri. people si.end $00,000,000 annually dust, sand, soap grease and sund other food sidult.-rants. This fact w adduced at the recent session of t pure f<A.d congress.
