We are charged with flaunting the
bloody shirt we suppose because we charge that this free trade shoot of the Democratic party is dictated by the southern leaders of that party for the purpose of emptying the treasury and preventing the payment of pensions to the soldiers of the war. That is cur firm conviction, and every circum stance tends to confirm us in that opinion. The surplus has all been coddled and worked up for no other purpose. There is no need of having a dollar of surplus. Offers of bonds are refused every day and the debt might thus be paid off and inter est saved by the million if those in charge of the treasury did not prefer to use it for political capital. We know that protection ha* givéïi us booming pros perity at the North and given us the means to reduce our great debt and pay some of the debt we owe our soldiers, and we know that free trade means ruin to manu factures and low wagts, idleness and poverty to our workingmen. If we would not fight such a policy, injurious to every body in this country, South as well as North, we should be unworthy of having such a country. In advocating protection we know that we are not seeking any sec tional advantage. It is a policy that will benefit the South as well as the North, and is the only policy that ever will help to make the South as prospérons as the North. We are not mistaken in our opinion as to the inspiring motive of the Southern leaders in this tree trade crusade. It certainly does not come from Northern Democrats, for nearly all the free trade Democrats at the North, like Frank Hurd and Morrison, have been retired by their own constituents. The time has been when several of the South ern states favored protection, when they needed it less and were in worse shape to profit from it. And we expect to see that condition of things again. We are certain of it. The South stands in a false posi tion. It is without free ballot, and there is no more use denying it than there is good in charging it. It is not a distinction we particularly care to boast abont, bnt the Herald rises to remark that it seems to occupy a first floor and front room prominence in Demo cratic thought and diecussion. Editor Dickerson will pardon us if we as sume that the directorate, (the power behind the throne) intended in the recent change of manage ment something more, or rather less, thnn a total surrender of the Independent space to the evening paper. However, we desire to testify to the discernment of the new editor and to bid him welcome to the Herald columns for texts and topics wherewith to enliven the "organ" banting. As long as the stockholders are willing to furnish the means with which to ran the machine, the "organ" is privileged to draw upon the Herald for material with which to freshen np its pages. The Independent asserts that but 3,000 tons of lead were imported into this coun try in 1887. This, at the rate of 2,000 pounds per ton, would make only 6,000,000 pounds. Now, referring to Spoflord's American Almanac lor 1888, which gives from official sources the amonnt of lead in pigs and bars, imported for the year ending June 30, 1887, we find the (amount given as 11,148,211 pounds, on which, according to the same authority, a duty of 2 cents per'ponnd was paid. And the amonnt of duty at that rate and on that quantity is given at $222,964. We don't know what kind of statistic our neighbors use, bnt we can give our authority for what we have said and can only concede erro rwhen we see some better anthority. The Sunday paper, "in explanation," gives all the reasons except the right one why its projected issues through the week have not materialized. Neither the.HER ald nor Mr. Harrison has ,in keeping the "little concern 'round the corner." The question boiled down, simply amounts to this: Is a dickering Democrat worth the price he puts upon himself ? Is there enough loose Republican money ready and reachable to guarantee the debts and provide for the expenses of a sheet which no party in existence would think of buying unless persistent begging and importuning had cost men their reason. That's just about thesizeof it—compressed in a nutshelL__ The South furnishes most of the Demo cratic Congressmen and electoral votes and has a perfect right to control the policy of the Democratic party, as it always has done and always will do. If the North wants a policy to suit its own interests and ideas it must shake off the Democratic party. ___ Victims of Typhoid Fever. Marietta, O., August 5.—Frank H. Chamlierlain died this evening of typhoid fever. Of those who partook of the college alnmni dinner, June 27th, more than twenty have been seriously ill with ty phoid fever. Chamberlain is the third to die and others are dangerously sick. Bill Approved. Albany, N. Y., August 1.— Governor Hill has approved a bill passed by the legislature at its recent session abolishing hand labor and state manufacturing in all penal institutions of the state. The attorney general decides that the bill applies to all penitentiaries and reformatories as well as state prisons. Cattle Plague. New York, August 7.—The recent sud den changes in the weather had the effect of suddenly developing plenro pneumonia among cattle in and about the city. In Wotchestcr county the Bureau of Animal Industry ordered the distraction of two hundred head Lumber »ill Burned. Ottawa, Angnst 1.—E. B. Eddy's lum ber mill at Birchton burned this afternoon, together with the entire season's cot, valued at $420,000 and a number of the workmen's houses and tool houses were lost. The total loss amounts to $300,000, on which there $100,000 insurance. Welcome Kain. AlClllSON, Ks., Angus'. 5.—A heavy lain occurred this morning in eastern and northern Kansas as far west as the Colo rado line and north in Nebraska to Omaha. The benefit to crops is immense. of of is So far from being in a war-like frame of mind, we are anxious for peace, bnt not that peace that comes from fear or inabil ity to exert our strength. The peace we crave for oar country is peace with honor and self-respect. For years we have advo cated the creation of a strong navy, and we shall continue to do so, no matter what political changes may occur, till we see the thing accomplished which alone can give ns assured peace at home and commanding influence abroad. Only by building a navy can we give meaning and effect to the Monroe doctrine. Only by a navy can we prevent the interference of European nations with the destinies of this continent. Only thus can we secure the peaceful, nnpnrchased al liance of all the Other countries and na tions on this continent. Only thus can we secure to ourselves the commerce of the seas and control of the markets of the world. The United States is the only na tion with the men, means and genius to accomplish this great achievement, and so long as we neglect this duty and destiny, we are disobeying the voice of Providence, speaking plainly through the language of op portunity coupled with abundant means. There is no jingoism about this. We advocate no war of conquest. If we put ourselves in a position to protect our vast sea coast and the exposed wealth of our sea-board cities and our extending com merce, we shall have all the alliances and annexations tendered us that onr utmost ambition can desire. Advantage ous treaties of commerce and trade will then be sought for by every nation that has access to the seas, and we shall enter upon onr higher career of prosperity at home and influence abroad. As we are now, we are like SampsoD, shorn of his locks grinding in the mills of the Philistine The nature of our government precludes the possi bility ot a career of conquest. We have no way to hold or govern conquered coun tries, bnt we can and soon will have snch a preponderating power on land and water that we can, not only command the peace for ourselves, but that of the world. It is an ambition that every American citizen should cultivate. With giant strength and limbs we need a giant head and heart to use this strength tor onr own and the gen eral good. _ The war ended a quarter of a centnry ago, but the debt created by it still remains, and the reasons for retaining some portions of onr war takes are just as strong today as ever. There no nation, ancient or modern that has ever made snch progress as onr own in reducing taxation since the war closed. The real bottom motive of all this southern zeal for low revenue is to deprive the national government of the means to pay the pensions to the soldiers. We do not think many of the North ern Democrats have this feeling, bnt they are nothing but patty in the hands .of their Southern al lies. We charge it without fear of success ful contradiction that the Democratic party for the past fifty years never has had a principle that was not dictated to it by the Southern leaders. It is just as trne to-day as it was before the war. It is an absolute fact that not one third of the Democrats of the North would of their own free will and personal conviction advocate free trade or low revenue tariff, except it were forced npon them by their Southern masters, who bnldoze them abont the Bame as they do their own negroes. It is fairly sickening to see how men can be driven by the party lash to sacrifice their dearest interests and their independence, and swallow every nauseous compound that a little knot of Southern men concoct and label "Democratic.". Cleveland took it as the only condition on which he could receive the renomination ,and all the powers of the administration have been nsed to drive in unwilling members of the party to support a policy that will take bread out of every month in this country for the benefit of foreigners. "There is a strong dark horse candidate (for Delegate) in the person of Mayor Ful ler, well known in Minnesota, formerly col lector of internal revenue in the Montana district. He is beiog industriously groom ed by his friends, who point with pride to the fact that he redeemed Helena from Democratic damnation at the last city election." So writes the Montana correspondent of the Pioneer Press —a correspondent who seems to have a roving commission that enables him to "write np" onr home poli tics from different territorial points for one and the same issne of the St. Panl paper. As a matter of fact, Capt. Fuller is not a candidate, not of the dark horse variety even, or of any other kind, complexion or color. It is a blooming imagination that credits any ambition of the sort to Helena's admirable Mayor, or that pictures any one of his multitude of friends patting him through a grooming process for the contest. It is commonly known that Capt. Faller is in favor of choosing a nominee from some locality west of the range, and in other local expressions nnmhers of Republicans are heard to like effect. If divisions should be manifested in the West Side counties, and out of snch divisions should grow the opinion that it would be better to look for a candidate elsewhere, then Lewis and Clarke would probably not be slow to present the names of several gentlemen, any one of whom would make a fit candidate. Fuller's popularity is such that the people would record for him a booming majority should the electors ever have the opportunity to cast their votes for him for Territorial Delegate or for a fujl fledged Congressman. Thebe is quite a trend of Democratic sentiment in favor of ex-Mayor Sallivgn for Delegate. Should Sullivan get right down to earnest work he could doubtless secure the nomina'ion. In that event the Republicans might eater the contest with ex-Mayor Kleinechmidty with a strong feeling of confidence in success. Refused the >4 rit. Dublin, August 6.—Tbte court here con firmed the conviction of John Dillon and refused the application for a writ of habeas corpus for his release from prison. There is no donbt bnt the price of lead in onr Western country is affected mach and unfavorably by the importation of Mexican ores, in which the value of the silver is the greater, bnt the quantity of the lead is very mach greater. We think this lead should be made to pay duty. There are two sides to this question, and we notice that in Colorado, where these Mexican ores are mostly worked, there is a wide diversity of opinion. It has be come a very large and profitable business to treat these Mexican ores. It employs large capital and many hands, and it is claimed that the United States is, on the whole, deriving a large advantage from the working of the law as it stand This is a sample of what is occurring every day and in all parts of the North : John T. Dunn, ex-speaker of the New Jersey assembly, says : " t es ; I am S°i n 8 to vote for Harrison, because I am disgust ed with my party and have been since it became a free trade organization. If the managers think they can bamboozle work ingmen into calmly accepting a dollar a day instead of three, they will find ont on November 6 th that they have made a great error. Irish-Americans at Elizabethport will vote for the protection ticket almost to a man. I am a Democrat, but I'll have no English in mine." That Mnnchansen story that the lead ores of Spain are first carried to England, Germany and France to be treated and only brought to this country to be manu factured into shot and then transported to South America is too thin to wash. It would not deceive an ordinary idiot. Shot can be made cheaper in any of those coun tries mentioned than in the United States and carried direct to South America. Lead and iron ores are brought to this country in vast quantities at mere nominal cost as ballast by ships that carry back loads of corn, cotton and wheat. A CURRENT report is to the effect that ex-Delegate Maginnis, who will soon re turn from the West, will presently take his departure for the States, accompanied by Mrs. Maginnis, and that, in response to a call from the national Democratic com mittee, the Major will take part in the Presidential canvass in several of the doubtful States. We seriously doubt that Maginnis has enthusiasm enough to speak in behalf of the man who treated him so shabbily and that Cleveland will profit little by any eloquence of the Montana orator expended in his support. Nobody that we are aware of ha* ever said that the present duty on lead was 5 cents, and anybody who knows what he is talking abont knows that it is not If bnt 2 cents per ponnd. Nor has any one to onr knowledge pretended that the Mills bill entirely removed the dnty on lead. Fortunately Missouri is a lead producing State, and wherever tariff redaction in jured Democratic constituents it was made very small. What we did and do com plain of is that any redaction should be made in the duty on an article of which we have snch an abondance and which it is clearly for onr interests to produce. It is equally well known that the price to the consnmer under the present doty is low and that the profits are small and would disappear entirely with any redac tion of dnty. Bnt the worst feature of the change proposed by the Mills bill to which we called special attention, was the greater relative redaction on all the manufactur ers of lead. This would destroy all those industries in which millions of capital are invested and thousands of laboring men and women are employed, and it would further close the home market for much of the lead produced. There is no attempt to answer a single criticism that we made, bnt a great hurrah over the fact that the Mills bill did not pat lead on the free list. Well, we suppose that the poor cra ven northern camp-followers of the great Democratic caravan, ought to be allowed to rejoice that their soathern masters have left them a little something, bnt we know the sober, level-headed, intelligent men of the north, and particularly the indepen dent miners of Montana, will insist that there is no occasion to reduce the lead dnty at all, and will bounce the party that attempts it. _ Yes, the war issues were supposed to have been settled twenty-five years ago, and yet we find the same free trade gang that wanted cheap labor then, and slave labor at that, are after the same things now. The South then, as now, ran the Democratic party, and always preferred that England should do all the manufac turing and that we shonld be content to raise the raw materials. The Sooth is poor and always will be poor so long as it clings blindly to the false economic theories of its dead leaders adapted only to a condition of slavery. The system of protection that we advocate we know has been of advantage to the North, we farther know that the North will stick to it, for it is more of a necessity to the workingman than the capitalist, but advantageongeons to all except the small class of importers in a few sea-board cities. And we farther know that the same policy wonld make the Sonth rich. It has done so already where the same methods have been nsed as at the North. So long as the Sonth keeps her blacks cowed and ignor ant, bo long as free white labor is dis honored and driven away to other portions of the country, it will remain poor, and deserves to remain so. Let the men of the South hng their folly to the death, bnt we insist that they shall not drag down the North to their own wetched level. Alabama Elections Montgomery, August 6.— The election to-day was for governor and state officers, and members of the legislature. The Re publicans had candidates only in a few coun ties, and made bnt little effort in the can vass. Nearly every candidate for the leg islature was a Democrat. Governor Seay's majority will be large. The returns so far received indicate a fair Democratic and a small Republican vote. Montgomery, Ala., August 7.— The legislature is overwhelmingly Democratic in both branches, while Gov. Seay and the Democratic State ticket carry every county by considerable majorities. ENGLISH PARLIAMENT. The Parnell Libel Sait Under Dis cussion. London, AugnBt 7. —In the House of Commons to-night W. H. Smith, govern ment leader, moved that if the Parnellite inquiry bill were not passed by midnight the the rales be suspended. The motion was adopted, and the House proceeded to the consideration of the bill as amended. Matthews, home secretary, moved to in sert the following : "If any person having been served with a summons under this act shall fail to appear the commission shall have power to issne a warrant for the arrest of such person. Adopted. Matthews next moved that anybody who is summoned to attend before the commis sion and who refuses or fails to attend, shall be liable to punishment for contempt of the high court of justice in England. Parnell moved an amendment to the effect that any person refusing to make a full and trne disclosure touching all matters in the respect of what he might be examined, should be liable to punishment by the high court of justice. After some discussion it was rejected—191 to 120. A long discussion ensned on the proposal by Hantes, Liberal, to compel the Times to formulate its charge before the opening of inqury by the commission. It was op posed by the government and finally re jected. Several amendments, consisting of minor instructions to the commission, were re jected. Other new clauses were then de bated and the house adjourned at 2:40 a. m. Investigation of Pauper Labor. New York, August 7.—When a steamer was i boarded at quarantine it was found that .she carried, of steerage pas sengers, all Austrians instead of 400 Ital ians. The committee returned to the city and resumed its session, and the testimony of Col. Cæsar, of the,Philadelphia Record, was resumed. The witness said that in the Pennsylvania coal fields he had found by personal observation that fully two thirds of the men employed in the colleries were Italians, Hungarians and Poles. The common laborers of these localities received only from 50c to $1.50 per day. The Italians live on abont 40c a day and the Hungarians spend abont 50c a day. The witness said that in 15 years the rates of wages had decreased 50 per cent, bnt the price of coal had remained the same. Fatalities of a Fire. New York, August 8.— Early this morn ing a four story tenement house on Ave nue A caught fire. The family of Gustave Beg, consisting of himself, wife, daughter and mother-in-law, living on the top floor were burned to death. The other occu pants escaped. The financial loss is insig nificant. Burned to Death. Denver, August 7.—A Durango special acconnt of the horrible accident near Fort Leads says: For several days past Robert Roberts, son of Wm. Roberts, a prominent ranchman, has been working for Andrew Salive, another ranchman living three miles west of the fort. This morning old man Roberts went over to Salives place to see his boy. Upon his arrival he found the house in ashes. Not a human being was in sight. Searching through the ruins he discovered the charred remains of his boy. Roberts aroused the neighbors, who made a farther search and discovered that Salives also perished in the flames. The fire is a mystery. The coroner will investigate. Steamer Ashore.

Have You Any Idea What It Costs TO MAKE A CHICAGO DAILY NEWS? You haven't? Well, let us give you just a glimpse into the business , perhaps it will interest you. To begin with, the work of the paper is divided into Seventeen Different Departments, each under its own respo?isible Superintendent. Let us take them in order as they stand on the weekly pay-roll :— i. The Editorial Department.—This includes managing editors, city editors, telegraph editors, exchange editors, editorial writers, special writers, and about thirty reporters.

There are a good many of him in The Daily News office—on an average . . 73 4 . '.'he Linotype Room.—But the compositor doesn't do all the type-setting. The " Linotype " machine " sets type " by casting a-line-of-type, on somewhat the same principle as the type-founder jasts a single type. Fourteen of these machines arc in use in The Daily News office, and the number of persons required in this department is ... . 29 5 . The Artists' and Engravers' Department.—But the metropolitan daily now gives its readers not only reading matter, but also illustrations. By the aid of good artists, zinc etchers and photography by electric light The Daily News is now printing the best newspaper illustrations in America. This takes the best service of skilled workers to the number of.................7 6 . The Stereotype Foundry.—The matter—type and pic tures—being now "locked up" in the "forms" the work is next transferred to the foundry. A metro politan daily no longer prints from its type. In order to print a large edition quickly it is neces sary to multiply the printing surfaces, and this is accomplished by casting duplicate stereotyped plates, from which, after they have been fastened to the presses, the printing is done. Of stereo typers The Daily News requires....... 8 7 . The Press Room.— The Daily News uses six double perfecting presses, capable of printing 100,000 com plete papers per hour. To run these there are required men to the number of........26 The foregoing takes no account of the special correspondents at hundreds of places throughout the country ; of European correspondents ; of fifteen hundred news agents throughout the Northwest who distribute The Daily News to its out of town readers; of two hundred city carriers ; of forty-two wholesale city dealers uith their horses and wagons; of one hundred and fifty branch advertisement offices throughout the city, all connect«! with 1 1 >• nain office by telephone, nor of the about three thousand newsboys who make a living, in whole or in part, selling Tin: Daily News in Chicago. This is what it costs the publisher to make a Chicago Daily News. It costs the reader to buy it one cent a day. Measured by the cost of its production, The Daily News is worth its price, isn't it? The Chicago Daily News is sold by all newsdealers, or will be mailed, postage paid, for $3.00 per y. or 25 cents per month. Add r. ss \ I* i()K !•. LAW SO Y ! ' >-it The Daily News, f^iicago.
