Letter of the Republican Vlcc-PresIdcntlal
Xomlnce Strong Indorsement of 1'ro

Hon. Levi P. Uorton's letter of accept

BiiiNixxiyr, N. Y., Oct. 2, 18S8. Gentleracn:
tn making formal acceptance of my nomination
as the Republican car.uidate for the Vire-Presl
Scncy, I desire to express my grateful apprecia
tion of the confidence reposed In me by ths
convention. The duties devolving upon the
Vice-President as Presiding Ofilcer of the Sen
ate and in certain contingencies a participant
m the legislation of Congress, makes it proper
that the people'shonld know distinctly and un
reservedly the political views of the candidate
who may be presented for their suflrase.
It fortcnatcly happens that this duty for my
self is easily discharged by referring to the
principles embodied in the resolutions unan:
mously adopted by the National convention
These resolutions, unequivocal and comprehen
sive in character, reflect my personal convic
tions and have my hearty approval.
It is difficult, hovrever, in a political campak-r.
to fix popular attention on more than one issu-,
and in the pending election every voter in js
United Suites clearly sees that the controlling
quest on is whether the protective tariff UuM. s
now in force shall be so reduced as to 1 ttroy
their efficiency, or whether these duties Mini
be retalued with such modillcations and adjust
ments as shall better adapt thsm to the prtvit
end of protection of the vast and important in
dustries of the whole country.
The Republican platform, while recognizing
the necctsity of reducing the revenue, declares
that thi reduction must not be made at the ex
pense of these industries and of American la
dot. The American people have now enjoyed
the protective system for a longer continuous
period than ever before in the history of tho
National Government. The result is that for
more than a quarter of a century they lave
realized a degree of industrial and financial
prosperity unprecedented in this country and
never equaled in any other.
The preying reason given for once again try
ing the old experiment of a revenue ta 'ff v-tih-out
protection is that the present turiS ha
uroduced and is producing a surplus in the
treasury. Butts It not easily within the is
dom of Congress to adjust the National income
to the National expenditure without sacrificing
or even imperilling an industrial system which
has lirocgut untold advantages to t e entir
country Admitting that the present tariff, n
lapse of time and the large expansion of trad'
which it has stimulated, needs revision, is I
not w(er and more patriotic to revise it w.ti
acnrcful regard to the interest of proteMion
than with th- purpose of lessening its protect
These are some of the questions whfch mast
be answered at the National polls in November
For myself, as a citizen and as a candidate, I
do not hesitate to declare that from l"ag ob
servation I am an unwavering friend or the pro
tective system. In a business life, now ex
tending over forty years, I have witnessed nnd
comjiareei the effects on the couniryof a rev
enue tariff tending to free trade with a pro'oct
ive tariff encouraging home industries. U.irtcr
the former tnc development of the country Ji:i
always been arrested, while under the latter it
has unrormly been promoted.
To the men who earn their bread by thi
sweat of their brows the differercc between the
two system is that of narrowing c lancrs on
thconehund and expanding opportunities o:
the other. Free trade would open America to
competition with the whole world Protection
preserves America for Americans, nr.tivc or
The industrial system of a country is as ten

dence, the only basis of sucoessful tr.idi;. be

the bud, capital grows timid, the foott of luior
is contracted and pressure for employment
abridgos the wages of all workingmen.
With the views of the convention, fr nkly ex
pressed in its resolutions, upon all oilier ques
tions of public interest I Hod myself in hearty
accord. In relation to silver and its important
bearing upon the National currency, as we'd as
its connection with and influence on the pros

lie Does Not Sen the Awful Importance of
Writing u Letter About It.
Columbus, O., Oct. 3. It seems probable
that Judge Thurmau will issue no letter ol
acceptance, owing- to his speech of accept
ance to the notification committee ami the
extended expression of his views in his
speeches during the campaign. He
has for a long time had in mind
what he would sny in case he
should write a letter, but his time lias
has been so fully occupied it hns been im
possible for him to put it on paper. lie
has had considerable business to attend tn
and all other time has been taken by hs
callers, who keep coming steadily at all
hours. This week the Judge has to so::t
extent shut the door on hi caller-, tc
give time to complete his pronarsit o:i
of the argument in the telephone case.
While he has not stated that he woul i nt
write a letter of acceptance. Judge Thur
mau has frequently remaike.l that he dot-,
not see the necessity. Tho statement of
the earl public publication of such a let
ter has baen made several tiui-s, but in ni
case has he stated positively wli:t it
would be, and the most of such tite;ae:its
have been made by others. He will leave
for Washington Friday.

THE 'MINORITY REPORT.
Bport of the Minority of thp Senate Fi
nance Committee on the Neir Tariff
Washington. Oct. 5. The rejort of the mi
nority of the Senate Finance Committee on tne
substitute. Tariff bill makes a document of
twelve printed pages. It bejrtns with the state
ment that in the preparation of the substitute
for the House bill no member of the minority
of the oomraittee was consulted or informed as
to Its provisions until it was reported to the
full committee Septemb-r 2j. It recites the
work of the sub-committee In hearing "the
statements, arguments and appeals of manu
facturers and others who demand that the pres
ent high rate of tariff taxation shall be main
tained, and in roc it instances prompted not by
any revenue neee ssities but alone for th" pur
pose of increasing th eir own profits at the ex
pense of Crj,(K),toO tax payers."
Continalng, It sjys: "It is safe to cay that
all the Interests tenefited by a higher protect
ive tariff have been fully heard and, have had
much influence in shaping this substitute.
while the great tody or the people the tax
payers and the victims of this policy have
not appeared ana have not been heard." It is
said that ihe snort time that the substitute
has been in the hand3 of the majority they
have found it difficult to ascertain its ef
fect, but the difference between the
House bill and the Senate substitute is appar
ent and radical at the outset in the matter of
revenue. The one is framed in the interests of
the public treasury: the other in the intorest of
private pockets. The one is framed in the in
terest of the whole people; the other in the in
terest of 300,0.! manufacturers. The one is
designed to reduce both Government revenue
and taxation the taxation especially which
bears heaviest on the necessaries of life: tho
other is intended to raise public revenue, in
deed, but to maintain private revenues, increas
ing and retaining taxation on all th ; necessa
ries of life.
The minority say the substitute bill is framed
at the expense mainly of the farming class, and
the bill is full of tricks by which this is ac
complished, though not apparently so. In
stances are recited and the report says: Can
Ingenuity go further That taggers iron should
be raised from 30 per cent, to fr per cent. : that
table cutlery for the poor should be raised by
specific rates added to ad valorem: thst Univcs
should be heavier taxed and made cheaper for
the f--Ki0 grade and dearer for the 515 grade by
making each pay S10 and 4 23 per cent, ad valor
cmall these and more are no longer startling
and prepare the mind for a thousand other In
:onsistcncies and discriminations hidden by
neat and obscure classifications that only time
and patient investigation will reveal."
The minority criticise the lumber, salt and
provisions schedules, and ihen discuss the sub
jects of "trusts." as follows: "The present
tarifT is the nursing mother of trustc. It is the
wall behind which these combinations are
formed, by which the people arc plundered.
The tariff keeps out the foreign competition
and the combination suppresses the domestio
and the whole people arc at tht-ir mercy and
pay whatever is demanded. Language is inad
equate to describe the iniquity of these combi
nations against the rights of the people, or to de
pict their disastrous effects upon the general
welfare. As the tariffs, which render trusts
possible, arc established and maintained at the
special instance of those who form them, it
would seem but simple justice as well us good
policy to tear down as much as possible of their
cover and refuse to longer aid them In wrong
"They are not private affairs as has been as
serted, but public evils of the gravest character,
affecting the price of every article which con
tributes to the comfort and support of tho peo
ple. The provisions of the substitute favor
them creatly and will serve to encourage their
formation in still other branches of manufac
ture. Many of those belonging to trusts ap
peared before the Finance. Committee, clamor
ous for such legislation as would promote their
interests. They are all opposed to the House
bill, which should commend it to those who
condemn their methods. It Is bad enough to
permit those who are most interested (manu
facturers) to appear before our committees and
suggest the legislation they wish, but surely
wc should not listen to the trusts and aid them
to rob with both hands."
The minority deny that the House Tariff bill
is u free trade measure and say that no one can
propose the reduction or taxation without be
ing subjected to the charge of being a free
trader by the opposition.
The minority deny that tariff revision will
reduce wages, and conclude their report with
tho foKowing remarks concerning free wool:
"The minority are firmly convinced that be
sides the incalculable advantage to then hole
country vwhich would result from the placing
of wool upon the free list, it is easily demon
strated that no i lass will suffer, but that each
will reap his shore of the benefit. With a
consumption of G00,(X.00J pounds of raw wool
in 1SS7 and a population of &),fXkt.0uQ, the
average per capita con-umption is easily reck
oned at eighteen pounds, or fifty pounds to the
average family cf five persons, and tho North
ern farmer, constantly exposed to tho rigors of
our winters, consumes something more than
the average. It requires from three to four
pounds to make a pound of cloths, so that
twelve to sixteen pounds of w. ol in clothing
for the family will be seen to be a low average.
This is now t-ixed from 5 to nearly
tu per cent. The manufacturer is not benefited,
because his finished product comes into com
petition with the foreign product made not only
from untaxed wool but cheaper wooL If the tax
be taken off wool we will import more wool, of
course, and in no other way can our great
factories prosper, because their capacity is bo
yond our own wool production. When tho
factories arc turning out more product the
employes have steadier work and better wages
and indirectly, of course, the whole conntry is
benefited. Under the House bill tho
manufacturers with free wool secure
even a higher competitive advantage
over the foreign than under the
present law of the substitute. The manufac
turers will export woolen goods ns we now ex
aort cotton and leather, and the demand for tho
vool will better the wool market and encourage
an increased production, while the average
wool grower himself will reap from cheapened
clothing more benefits than he ever did from a
tax of his nroduct, which he must pay himself.
The minority, therefore, dissenting from tho
reporter the mv-jority, commend to the Senate
and the country the bill of the House or Repre
sentatives No. f.ioi, as a message for the re
duction of taxes based alike upon justi.e and

day gladdened the hearts of the veterans
at Camp McCook when they turned out
when the reveille sounded yesterday
morning. The posts that arrived Monday
afternoon had become comfortably at
home in their quarters and order reigned
where confusion had held sway the day
The artillery drill was the first interest
ing event of the day. It took place in the
field enclosed by the race course, and was
witnessed by thousands. Fifty-seven
men, fifty-nine horses, four three-inch
guns, four caissons and ammunition and
transportation wagons made up the detach
ment under the command of Colonel C. A.
Woodruff and Firat Lieutenant A. C. Tay

Mrs. John A. Logan expressing her re
grets at being unable to attend.
Nothing of especial interest occurred
after tho artillery drill until nearly three
o'clock when the reunion was formally
opened by an address of welcome by
Judge Guthria. He read his address from
manuscript, reviewing the causes
which led to tte war, sketching
its history and result and paying
an eloquent tribute of praise to
those who wont forth to save the Union.
He closed with a warm welcome to the
veterans in the naiie of tho committee of
thirty-eight and of the citizens oE Topeku.

Suicide In Jail.
SAT.retr. Mass., Oct 4. John J. Connolly,
of Boston, in jail awaiting action of the
grand jury for highway robbery at Glou
cester, asked for tobacco yesterday
morning and twenty minutes later
was found hanging dead in his cell,
having used a twisted towel. He had
been very nervous for several days
and his mind was evidently unbalanced.
Papers had been made out to commit him
for insanity. He was believed to have
been implicated in the recent Lomasney
murder and robbery case, and had told the
prison officials that Smith, who was serv
ing a life sentence for nmrder, never
pushed Lomasney off the wharf as alleged
QUEEN OF HOLLAND.
Her Aged Husband Adores Her, and Her
Will Is His law.
Quite another style of a woman is
Queen Emma, to whom the Dutch are
reconciled only because she is a good
nurse for their King; popular sbe
could never be, because the Dutch de
test even the most talented Germans,
and Emma is a Princess of Waldeck
Pyrmont. However, the King adores
her and is only contented in her socie
ty and she seems to think there is no
difference between thirty years and
three score and ten. When William
went to Potsdam to attend the mar
riage of his brother he little dreamed
of marrying, but he met Helen of Wal-deck-Pyrmont,
now Duchess of Albany,
and felt that at sixty-one life might
recommence were she to become the
Queen of Holland. Helen looked upon
her aged admirer with scorn and re
fused his flowers and jewels. One day
William overheard Emma say to her
sister: "I should never refuse to be
come a Queen." "Ah," he exclaimed,
'as you find your sister is wrong will
you marry mo?" Immediately she ac
cepted, and in 1879 became Queen of
Holland. Those who were at tho
Dutch court when Emma made her
entree say she was simple as a child;
that she looked upon her palace as a
marvel, danced and laughed as though
she were not conscious that the
courtiers were criticising her every
gesture. The aged husband was
shocked, but very kindly led
her to tho portrait of his mother,
the proud Marie Paulowna, and said:
"She never danced; a Queen should
never laugh in public" Emma, like a
"country grotchen," accepted the re
buke with good grace, and "since
then," say tho Dutch, "we have noth
ing serious to criticise in her deport
ment, but the manner in which she
murders our language we can hardly
forgive." Already has Emma begun
to teach the Princess Wilhelmina tho
duties of a sovereign. When, in 1886,
tho King was ill and tho socialists
very daring, Queen Emma, without a
word to her husband, calmed the dis
turbance in three days. Of her
daughter she wishes to make a King,
not a Queen. Not long ago her horses
ran away. The coachman was thrown
out, and she, with Wilhelmina, just
escaped. Orders were given to bring
out fresh horses, for, "if we do not
start again my daughter will learn the
meaning of the word fear."
Queen Emma is a brunette, rather
pretty, according to the Germans
beautiful, but a peculiar habit of wink
ing detracts much from her appear
ance. Over the King she has control,
and if he objects to any decision made
by her she threatens to leave the pal
ace to him a dream of unhappiness.
Every day the royal family dines at
seven o'clock; afterward there is music
and reading by the Queen, whose
audience consists usually of her hus
band, daughter and the Jonkheer

cares to see. Hague Cor. Philadelphia

Proof Better Than Assertion.
With such proof as tho following letter
from W. H. Dean, of No. 27S Seventh street,
New York, it is not necessary to mako tho
bare assertion that Allcock's Ponocs
Plasters cure lumbago. Mr. Dean says:
Some ten days ago I was taken with a
very violent pain in the small of my back.
It was so severe that I could hardly
breathe; every movement caused great
agony. I finally found out it was lumbago.
Being entirely helpless, a friend sent to a
druggist and got two Allcock's Porou3
Plasters; these were well warmed and
applied to my back, one above the other.
In half an hour, to my great delight and
surprise, I found tho pain began to abate.
In two hours I was able to walk out and
attend to my business, the pain being al
most gone. Next day I was all right but
continued wearing tho plasters for a week.
Quite a paradox that in a land of tho
free so many Americans should covet
bonds. Nantucket Inquirer.

think I am; yet the fact is I only get time
to read my magazine; but when I have fin

A CIaim to Human Gratitude.
Charlotte Corday, the sad-faced, tender
hearted peasant girl of Normany, made
great history by one desperate act!
Sickened by the saturnalia of the French
revolution, and moved to desperation as
Robespierre and Marat were leading the
flower of France to the guillotine, she de
termined that she would put an end to
Marat's bloody reign.
Marat had demanded two hundred thou
sand victims for the guillotine !
He proposed to kill off the enemies of the
Revolution to mako it perpetual!
No wonder it fired the blood of this patri
otic peasant maid !
Gaining access to his closely-guarded
quarters by a subterfuge, she found him m
his bath, even then inexorable and giving
written directions for further slaughter!
He asked her the names of the inimical
deputies who had taken refuge in Caen.
She told him, and he wrote them down.
"That is well! Before a weeVJs over
they shall all bo brought to the guihotine."
At these words, Charlotte drew from her
bosom the knife, and plunged it with su
pernatural force up to the hilt in tho heart of
" Come to me, my dear friend, come to
me," cried Marat, and expired under the
In the Corcoran gallery at Washington is
a famous painting of Charlotte, represented
as behind the prison bars tho day before
It is a thrilling, sad picture, full of sorrow
for her suffering country.and of unconquer
able hate for her country's enemies.
Whata lesson in this tragic story! Two
hundred, nay, five hundred thousand peo
ple would Marat have sacrificed to his un
holy passion of power !
Methods are quite as murderous and in
exorable as men, and they number their
victims by tho millions.
The page of history is full of murders by
authority and by mistaken ideas! In the
practice of medicine alone how many hun
dreds of millions have been allowed to die
and as many more killed by unjustifiable
bigotry and by bungling !
But the ago is bettering. Men and meth
ods are improving. A few years ago it was
worth one's professional bfo to advise or
permit the use of a proprietary medicine.
To-day there are not two physicians in any
town in this country who do not regular
ly prescribe somo form of proprietary rem
edy! H. H. Warner, famed all over tho world
as tho discoverer of Warner's safe cure,
began hunting up the old remedies of the
Log Cabin days; after long and patient re
search ho succeeded in securing some of the
most valuable, among family records, and
called them Warner's Log Cabin remedies
tho simple preparations of roots, leaves,
balsams and herbs which were tho suc
cessful standbys of our grandmoth
ers. These simple, old-fashioned sar
saparilla, hops and buchu, cough
and consumption and other remedies have
struck a popular chord and are in extra
ordinary demand all over tho land. Thej
are not tho untried and imaginary remedies
of somo dabster chemist intent on makinr.
money, but the long-sought principles of the
healing art which for generations kept our
ancestors in perfect health, put forth for the
good of humanity by one who is known all
over tho world as a philanthropist a lover
of hi3 fellow man, whose name is a guaran
tee of the highest standard of excellence.
The preparations are of decided and
known influence over disease, and as in the
hands of our grandmothers they raised up
the sick, cured the lame, and bound up the
wounds of death, so in their new form but
olden power as Log Cabin remedies, they
are sure to prove the "healing of tho na
tions." Corday did the world an incalculable serv
ice in ridding Franco of the bigoted and
murderous Marat, just as this man is doing
humanity a service by re-introducing to the
world the simpler and better methods of

A great mistake perhaps was made when
Dr. Sherman named his great remedy
Prickly Ash Bitters; but it is presumed
that at that time all remedies for the blood,
etc, wore called Bitters. Had he called it
Prickly Ash "Regulator," "Curative," or
almost anything but Bitters, it undoubtedly
would have superseded all other prepara
tions of similar character. The name Bit
ters is misleading; it is purely a medicine,
and can not be used as a beverage.
