Republicans had a good meeting last night. They had more they had a remarkable meeting, one of the largest ever held in this city. There was an unusual outpouring of the voters of the city. By their presence, and by the attention which they gave to the speak ers, they demonstrated the fact that they are very much in earnest this year over the result of the election. Many of them is ho sat in Gardiner Hall for over two hours last night have tasted of Democratic times to their sorrow. They have had an opportunity and a costly one to compare the Republican times with those given to them by the Demo cratic administration. They have had enough of the Democratic era of pros perity, and they are anxious to return to the days when they ha? work and wages under the McKinley act. They are far better calculated to know whether or not they have been benefited by the election of a Democratic Presi dent and a Democratic Congress than the Democratic writers, who have dis covered such a phenomenal improve ment in business that they are contin ually telling the people how prosperous the country now is. "The good times which have come" are largely psycho logical. They da not exist, although we are willing to confess that anything is better than what the Democrats have given us for eighteen months. As an illustration of the "good times" we quote the following notice to em ployes recently posted by the American Cordage Manufacturing Company of Brooklyn, N. Y., which employs seven hundred hands: The government of the United 8tate3 having removed the duty on bagg ng, it can now be imported free. Bagging is manufactured in India, Germany and Scotland. Wages in these countries are as follows: For weavers, spin ners and men laborers, ten cents per day in India; thirty cents per day in Germany; forty- 3 6 TO 1. five cents per day In Scotland, and other classes in proportion. In spite of these very lowwagcs paid in other countries, the company hopes that it maj be found posbible to continue the business here. Inquiry is now being made as to the cost of landing bagging here from other countries arid on the information obtained the management will determine what course to pursue. It is with much sorrow that the employes are noti fied that under the best conditions that are hoped for it will not be possible to cpminue to pay the present scale of wages. By about November 1 it will be dicided whether the mill can be run at all and if so at what rate to pay for eaca class of empl jves. Meantime the present rate of wages will con tinue to be paid. The managers of the com pany appreciate the good work lately given by all the employes, and while thankinp each one, now wish to remind them that it is only by extra effort and increasing production that the mill can possibly be kept going. With a very few exceptions every one of the mills and factories which has resumed operations has done so with a reduced wage schedule. Of course the men who are again given work are delighted at the idea of being able once more to earn a few dollars, but they have the misfortune to know that their weekly envelopes will not contain the same amount of money which they had been receiving prior to the Democratic victory of 1892. Half a loaf is better than no loaf, but no man who had been getting a whole loaf is impressed with the existence of "good times" when be is only able to earn half a loaf for the same amount of labor which formerly brought him a whole loaf. Our Democratic friends may argue as they please about the reduction in the price of bread and all that sort of thing ; but the men whose wages have been cut after weeks and months of idleness are not to be fooled by any specious advice which tells them that they are better off because they , can save 83)3 cents a year on blankets, regardless of the fact that they are receiving one hundred or more dollars lss a year than they received m the days when protection to American industries was the policy of the administration. JAPAN PUSHING THINGS. Japan is making war on China in the spirit of Grant's famous telegram to Sheridan after Five Forks, which read, "Push things." Japan has captured Port Arthur, an important naval sta tion on the Gulf of Pee-Chee-Lee. It is very plain that Japan will not ask permission of any of the powers of Europe in the matter of how she shall pursue her victory until she is compell ed to do so under the stress of over powering force. Russia will never ask Japan to make peace wi,th China except upon her own terms, and Rassia's rival in the Pacific, Great Britian, is not likely to interfere with Japan, as ehe wants no quarrel with Russia. Great Britain has hitherto been very intimate with China, because she be lieved that China was the strongest of Asiatic powers and therefore the most capable of resisting Russian aggression. But the ability with which Japan has made war, both by sea and land, has doubtless changed English opinion, and it is Eafe to say that Japan is quite likely to have Great Britain for an ally if she should ever need assistance to stand off Russian encroachment upon Korea. Russia is in no condition today to bulldoze Japan. Her fleet in the north Pacific is not a match for that of Japan and she can do nothing by land until the Siberian railway is finished, which will not be for many months. As a matter of common sense the great power ought to let Japan alone; if Japan can break up China and thus leaven the dull lump of her benighted civilization why not let her do it? The independence of Korea, the dis' integration and partition of China among the powers of Europe would be a long Etride forward for modern civili zation in Asia. It is clear that Japan hopes to cap ture Peking and dictate a peace on her own terms before China can slowlv assemble, organize, arm and equip her vast population. A BAD SHOWING. The deficit of the treasury last month was $7,700,000, and it is probable the deficit for this month will reach $9,000, 000. Under the present administration the gold balance has been reduced one half, while the gold obligations have been increased by a $59,000,000 bond issue. The income tax cannot make up the deficiency ; it cannot be relied upon to produce more than $15,000,000, and un less congress in December enacts needed legislation the machinery for its collec tion cannot be put in force. In any event the proceeds of the income tax will not be available for several months to come. The shrinkage in business, as shown by trade statistics, amounted during the first year of Democratic ascendancy to over $12,000,000,000 or about one twelfth th9 wealth of the country. From 1874 to 1894 there was no deficit in the treasury until the close of the first lull fiscal year of Democratic con trol, when the deficit was G9,803,260. And the present fiscal year makes even a worse showing. The shrinkage in bank clearing? for the two months preceding the repeal of the purchasing clause of the Sherman act was $2,634,590,247, while the falling off for the two months immediatelv following the repeal was $3,339,684,035, or greater than, the shrinkage of the two months immediately preceding the repeal by $705,684,788. There was no improvement after the repeal of the silver purchase clause, and the deficit continues to grow after the temporary settlement of the tariff question. How does the doleful record of Cleveland's administration compare with the wonderful prosperity of the fiscal year of 1892, of which Du n's com mercial agency said : "A fiscal year never matched in the whole history of the country in volume of industrial production, in magnitude of domestic exchanges or in foreign trade has just closed." Hon. Tuos. E. Baker of Pinal county, was in the city yesterday and The Re publican acknowledges a pleasant call. He is a candidate on the Republican ticket for the assembly, and if Pinal county is alive to her interests he will be elected. Mr. Baker is a young man of energy and will be a very valuable member of the legislature. The people were disappointed last night at the failure of Judge Webster Street to speak at the Republican rally. The Judge was prevented on account of a sore throat, but will address the voters later in the campaign. He is a forceful speaker and Till be greeted by a large audience. Henky George confesses with humil iation that he voted for Cleveland in 94. If George takes the matter to heart so, what, must be the feelings of reputable people who committed that foilv? All that good citizens have to do now is to clean out the court house ring ; or if that isn't all they have to do it Is, at least, their most important present duty.
