This mrans that tue Republican ticket is going to get there, solid and sure Those who are tired of prosperity and do not want to see Montana admitted as a State in the next ten tears should vote the Democratic ticket Mike -OWNERS and mine-workers who want to see onr silver mints closed up or wages reduced one half, should by all means vote the Democratic ticket. Those who have no higher ambition for their country than to make it a tributary province of England can gratify mat am bition by supporting Cleveland and his policy. _ Lt'MBEK men who want to see their business crippled and transferred to the IXiminion provinces where labor is 25 per cent, cheaper, should certainly vote the Democratic ticket. I ! That was a magnificent meeting that greeted Carter and colleagues at Marys ville last night. The demonstration for numbers and enthusiasm has not been equalled by anything in the Democratic line anywhere in the territory. I Lost, strayed or stolen: A letter, bearing the autograph of W. A.

There is no threat of the organ opposite that can cans? tbe HERALD to quail in its defence of the good name of private citizens wnen wantonly assailed, as they have been by the Independent. The pres ent is not the first time the Herald has offered itself as a target to draw the fire of the organ blnnderbuss.and it will not be 1 the last. Two notable letter- are lor some time missing—supposed to have been loît or missent in the mails. These are, first, a lette: from Grover Cleveland endorsing David B.

" I ndei this title the editor o. the Lorth American Levine for October. gives ^ readero an admiral^ and pertinent article irom a text furnished by Gen Harrison j \ when he characterized the free traders a? "students of maxims, rather than mar kets." It is a text on which much coaid he said in addition to all that has been said. Among the majority of the Hoose commitee that concocted the Mills bill there was • not a single business man. except Scott, of Pennsylvania, and so long as his particular interests were spared he would sacrince all the rest of the country to his ambition. Not only d'd the iramers o the House bill know nothing themselves about the prin ciples on which business prosperity de pends. bat with sublime indifference to consequences, they mused to hear evi dence. except as some member of their own party told them that he would oppose the bill unless some caange were made to suit the special interests of his constituents. But even the maxims that are inconsist ently followed are false. "To buy where I yon can buy cheapest, and sell wnere you can sell dearest," is not a maxim to follow in building up the prosperity of a country or a community. It is the cut-throat policy of short-sighted selfishness. The highest and liest prosperity is attained when one seeks the prosperity of his neighbor as well as his own We quott from the article mentioned the following "The men of maxims say we can buy foreign goods cheaper thaL we can make them. Possibly we can do so in some cases, judging by the price list: but these lists do not reckon the cost of providing for the millions now profitably employed in established industries, whom tbe heart less policy of supplanting American by European products would render idle, homeless and hungry. "It is by omitting such expenses that the price of foreign goods seems cheaper to us. For all the glittering sophistries of the men of maxims cannot blot ont the sell evi dent fact that for ail the foreign labor woven and spun into imported fabrics, an equal amount of American labor must inevitably be displaced, and that in one way or another this displaced labor must be sup ported by us.' ! i ! j a is explained. Much ado was made by certain Demo cratic papers over what purported to be a portion of Mr. Blaine's speech at Adrian, as published in the Pioneer I'ress of Octo ber 5th. It was out of keeping with the rest cl thi speech and utterly inconsistent with the well-known views of Mr. Biair.c. We compared the speech as given by tue Pioneer Press with copies published in sev eral other papers, and uund nothing like it elsewhere. For further assurance we telegraphed the Pioneer Press for an ex pla in* ion. and here is the reply: " St. Paul. Oct. 11.1888. Helena Herald: You are right. That portion of Blaine s speech at Adrian, com mencing. 'Free wool is discussed,' etc., and ending with, 'because their capacity is beyond our own wool production.' is irom the minority repoit of tne Senate commit tee. and was a printer's error. Pioneer Press." In the same issue of the Pioneer I'ress the minority report of the committee on the Senate substitute lariff bill was published, and in handling the copy of the two, by the careiessnes? of the primers, the error occurred. This knocks the wind out of two suc cessive leaders of the Independent, and if that paper carer anything for truth and justice it will make the correction. But the friends and admirers of Mr. Blaine in Montana will a: lea.-* be advised by us that he has made no change from his con sistent. uniform and masterly champion ship of the great wool-growing industry of the country, in which Mont ma has sach a promurent vested interest.

Hershfield Bros, or the Merchants National Bank in connection with the Weir estate. Their names were incidentally mentioned in association with Mr. Carter as administrator. We cheer fully withdraw bdv reierence that may be possibly construed as asnersions on their standing — Independent.

But the published apology is accompanied by disclaimers irom the owners and manager? of the organ, who are said to have repudiated the scandalous article io terms as emphatic as they could be stated, iacking the one es sential particula: of publicity. It is. of course, generally understood that the hire ling in charge of the Independent columns has himself nothing to lose by infam ous campaign he is waging against Mr. Carter and his friends and supporters, that he is wholly irresponsible, and tuat his al most daily debauchery unfits him for the conduct of decent and nonorable journal ism. His habitua, excesses are notorious. and within the past twenty-four nours the directory of the Independent has felt obliged to plead in extennauoa of com mitted ofienses his chronic inebriation.

It is one of the silly little pretexts for ^ ^ ^ tfae aivocatea of that d< * triEt have tought their American fol ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ faw malBri . • als our manufacturers may hope to enter ! on an equality the markets of the world. Those who have told their American dupes this pretty Btory rbow it to be an împossi i bility. With the same machinery, cheaper ! labor, capital, fuel and transportation, they knew that the American manufacture :s have no chance in the markets of the world. Any cue, *- an unmitigated fool who thinks so. The facts prove it in the case of cot.on manuiactarers. Our cotton manuiACtnrers nave tree raw mate rial, grown on our own soil, delivered cheap and quick, with several advantage? over the English manufacturer, and yet, though this is one of the oldest manuxac turing industries in the country, their pro duct? have not to any greit extent pene trated the marseis of the world. While we ship abroad 815.000.000 worth o; the cheapest class of goods the English export j Ji3o0.000.00u worth. In such a snowing in cotton, raised with in sight of our Southern cotton mills, what can we hope to do in woolen manu factures, when we have destroyed the home product and are dependent on the wool growers of Australia, Afnca and South America, whose products, carried in British ships, caa be laid down as cheap in Liverpool as in New York or Boston, to say the least ? The dificrencc in wages alone would give the English an easv monopoly of the market, and they know it well enough, and so may we, il we are not consumate fools eager to be deceived. British manuiaeturers laugh among themselves at the siliy people on this side of the ocean who seem ready to swallow anything they may prescribe. They are using tne democratic party as a cat s paw ta pall their chestnuts out of the fire. Without a commercial marine and only a snadow of a navy, what would we do among the markets of the world, with both our supplies and products liable to seizure and confiscation whenever England should see fit to close down upon us'.- We might as well invite British troops to gar rison our forts ! The mirket of tue United States alone is worth as much as taat of all the rest of the world, outside of Great Bntains and for us to relinqu sh this in order to get what is beyond oar reach, would be as foolish as ( is beyond oar reach, would be as foolish as that of the dog in dropping his meat to clutch the snadow. Can it be wondered at that the English despise us, when we allow ourselves to be dragged about by the nose wheresoever tney like.' It serves usrigbt, if with our eyes wide open, we walk like a silly iamb right into the iions den With power and means enough to rule not only our own destinies but those of the wuole world, the Democratic leaders by their policy would make our whole people tne drudges, underiings and tributaries cf Great Britain. And here are thousands of Irishmen in this land, driven into exile by British oppression, tramping and shouting tor Cleveland and iree trade, while they could not be doing England greater service if they were carrying muskets as British geoES. In arms and open warfare we have no fear of England, bat in diplomacy and sophistry she can wrap tne simple people of this country around her ÜDger like a wet rag Say'S the London Times : "It is to the New World that the Cobden Club is chiefly looking as the most likely spnere for its vigorous foreign policy. It has done what it can in Europe, and is now turning its eyes westward and bracmg itself for the struggle which is to come. It cannot rest while the United States are unsubdued .*' How do the people of the United Mates l.ke the idea of being subdued to the in terest? of tbe British Cobden club? The use of this term is more truthful than politic. It expresses exactly what is proposed to be done, not by arms, not by toreign invasion, but by tbe ignorant simplicity, if not the open and intended treachery, of leaders to whom the people htve entrusted power. Tnose who control the destinies of Euro pean countries are too shrewd to be de ceived by the fret trade prattle of the Eng lish manufacturers, eo they turn as a last desperate resort to America. The British cannot even get their own colonists to give them free trade, but they can lead Cleve land and hi? cabinet and party by the noee and get them to recommend to the people of thi? country to wear the British yoke. Tne recommendation coming irom the Londoa Tunes would not command the a single Ameri thing contained in Cleveland s message or em bodied in the Mills bill seems to command the ready support of the maiority of those who call themseives Democrats. We say to them, von are betrayed. You are being subdued to British interests by yonr own trusted leaders. A government tha; will strike down the established industries of its own country, to build up those of a for eign country, should be repudiated and nothing but besotted ignorance can pre vent a general repudiation of the present administration and its foreign policy. soidier? or clanking chains in British dun ! : : j , Lawyer Connolly' had a brat rate ex case for not making a speech last night, i respect or obedience of native or i ireign born can. but the same me crowd. saving to the Democratic brethren clus tered about the stand "I went to Marys ville a week ago and some one gave me a dnnk of whisky and I havn t got over it yet." Mr. Connolly was not delicate in staring the case, bnt he didn t go into par ticular?. He didn't unbosom himself and say that the bar ! was wide open, and that the candidate jumped upon the saloon counter and bid all hands to dnnk their fill and take a jugful home to their families. He was pardoned under the cir cumstances irom going into the merits of the story, and the next orator on the list. Judge Culien. took hi? place and was made responsible for a premature scattenng of j gospel. DEMOCRATIC Our citizens had rather of a wintry time last evening, listening to the Democratic gospel according to Bro. smith, and we do him the credit oi saying that he did a? well as any of the more celebrated expounders of that gospel, in Congre* er out. It is the same old story a thousand times re futed: an airy castle, builtoat iff imaginary facts. We only propose to notice briefly some of the more »Krem points. In the first plate the Republican partv offers in evi I ! • I I | deuce a prosperous country as the proo. o. its policy of protection, which still stands* though we have had a Democratic admin istration for neatly four years. The bur den of proof ie upon those who would change this policy, to show that we could prosper more under the policy that they propose. The first fault found with the Republi can policy is that it produces a surplus of revenue. We are told that unnecessary taxation is unjust taxation, and that we are maintaining war taxes in times of ! peace It would be sufficient answer to ! this to say we still have a war debt of ( 81.200 000,000 to pay, and we know of no other way but taxation of some kind to raise the means to pay it. Will any one pretend to say that it ie unnecessary to pay our national debt? There is no pressing need of paying it at once, and hence the senate bill that pro poses a greater reduction of taxation than the Mills bill. Mr ports have been increased and the war de mands have ceased. We suppose he and every eensible man knows that if you want to reduce revenue from a duty on imports it i? necessary either to remove the tax altogether or increase it so that importions will be discouraged. But. say the Democrats, an increase of dnty increases the price of goods to the consumer. Anomalous as it may stem, the test of trial shows that, in every instance, when home manufacturers have been made secure again?! foreign competition they have invested more extensively, im proved their method, and through home competition given the people better goods for less money than ever beiore. Mr. Smith testifies to the truth of this proportion in saving tuat wool was higher wher. our tariff was lowest on that article. It is quite natural. There was little or none grown. And so it will be again if the sheep industry is destroyed. If the duty on wool has made it cheaper and the removal of that duty would make it dear er. as has Ireen the case in past years when the duty was the lowest, will Mr. Smith or anyone else inform the dear people how they are to be benefit ted by the proposed changt'r Mr. Smith thinks a hundred years of protection is long enough; that our infant industries should be able now to take care Smith says the duties on some im ; now to take care of ttremselve-s. Well, England protected her industrie» a thousand year? beiore she tried free trade. Other countries have pro tected them still longer and are protecting them still. The time to let go of protec tion is when it is no longer needed. The way the case stand? to-day, the chief necessity for protection is in the fact that wages are so much higher in this countrv. i -r,- _____.__. , , * j >\ e art protecting the day wages of the laborer rather than the wealth of the cap italist. There ate more rich manufacturer? in England to-day than in this country. Very few of our millionaires have made their money in manufacturing. They have made it in speculation, railroads, inven tions and a variety of other ways. We say that if any manufacturers are to have a profit on the goods we use and consume, it is better that American rather ^than British manufacturers should have thi? proht, for here it gives employment to la bor. pays taxes and adds to the wealth and resources of the country. In any and every way the Republican policy can be presented, it will command the approval of every intelligent patriotic citizen. It is founded on the rock of ex perience. For all tnat is claimed for the Demo cratic party in extending the area of the country, the Republicans are just as much entitled to the credit as those who stil citng to the name alter having abandoned the early principles of that party. There was no Republican party prior to 1856 and all the glory of the Democratic patty was achieved before that date. If that party had succeeded iu its schemes since that date we should have had no country to ! day. Mr. Smit.t speaks of the vast land grants to laiiroads mat tne Republican party has made If he will take pains to hunt up the beginning of tbi3 policy he will find it was of Democratic origin. But we are not among those who should complain of this policy, but for which there would be no Montana to-day. Y'ou may call it ruinous waste if yon choo:-e. History will record the fact that it has added hundreds : of millions to the wealth of this : country. In speaking of the vast grants j of the public domain, for which tne Re publican party is responsible, why not mention the homestead act. which Buchan an vetoed and Abraham Lincoln signed, under which millions of acres have been , given away to settlers that they might be cultivated and become tbe sites oi happy and prosperous homes. There are no statistics that can prove i that only one out ot eighteen are benefitted by protection. Everybody is benefitted, no matter in what corner of the country he may live. And though we have more millionaires than all the countries of the world, we have also a greater and more general distribution of wealth. A most unfortunate reference was it for Mr. Smith to point to the effects of free trade upon the farmers of England. It is an exact illustration of Goldsmith's de scription of at ill-fated iand to threaten ing ills and prey. All over the British islands there is decay and ruin among the larmers. Not one-third of the wool is pro duced that there was w nen the blight of I j ire* tnde fell upon thi: 0Dce h. PPJ | prosperons country. The farmers have I emigrated to all quarters o! ! the globe; lands bave gum: • out of cultivation and are being inclosed I into parks for the rich. Though England I ha? increased greatly in wealth and popu lation through her commerce and manu factures, she is ha teuiBg to ultimate ruin as no other nation in the world. When she loses control ot the seas, as she is cer tain to do, when our people take the mat | ter in hand in earnest, what will be her est and most Becure that develops most iu own înuernrî resources and depends least np0D eupp ite from ahroad - pitiable condition That nation is strong Mr. Carter - aggressive tariff campaign has been making dangerous inroads on tbe Democratic strongholds of Montana, and the opposition, sbrewd enough to see lt.has sought to divert Mr. Carter s attack and put him on the delensive. We trust Mr. Carter will not be deceived and diverted by these tactics. It is too old a ruse. Go for the enemy, Mr. Carter. All that is sought by them is to divert your attention and occupy your time.— Net r Northwest. Correct you are, Capt. It is idle for M*. Carter to think he can silence the hyenas howling at his heels. The Republican standard bearer is unquesi ionably the vic tor in the battle of issues before the people and there mus* come no reverse through the trail and cunning oi an unscrupulous enemy. The dastardly maligners, though answered again and again, will not down, but will repeat over and over their villainouT inventions by way of diversion from the issues on which Cieveiand-Clark crowd have liven routed in every part of the Territory. With the consent and connivance of the candidate, as it appears, other 0 clamera of Mr. Carter will proceed, as they have be gun. to slander and lie, and there will be no end of this despicable mode of cam paigning as long as creatures of Clark can be kept upon the stump, and bums and scallawags have full swing at the columns of Democratic organs. In the language of the Deer Lodge paper. "Go for the enemy, Mr. Carter." You have got the Democracy on the run, and now make the rout com plete in every quarter. I I Gen. W. T. Sherman is not a bloody shirt shrieker, but he talks to the South plainly ia his article on 'Old Shady, With ; a Moral," in the October North American. He says: "The Northern people will not long permit the negro vote to be sup pressed, and yet be counted in the political game against them. Butler met the ques tion honestly. Ask the abrogation of Arti cle XIV of the amendments of the Consti tution of the United States, or allow the negro to vote and count his vote. Other wise, as sure as there is a God in Heaven, you will have another war, more cruel than the last, whtn the torch and daggers will take the place of muskets of well ordered battalions. The negro is gaining in experience and intelligence every day. and he has read Byron: j Herebtarv bondsmen, know ye not. ! Who would be free, themselves must st ike tlie blows.' "Should the negro strike that blow, in seeming justice, there will lit- millions to assist them " We say to the Republican? of Montana, Do not allow vonreeives to be diverted fiom the strong, single issue of this cam paign by ie3orting to personal scurility. In so doing voa descend from impregna ble ground to the dirty level of your op ponents, where they are at home and have natural advantages. Appeal to the decency, manhood and intelligence of the voters of Montana and tbe appeal will be heard and answered. There is not a sensible man among our opponents who can sobeily de fend the Cleveland aDd Mills bill policy before the people of Montana, and their whole game of desperation is to divert at tention from the real issue. Don't accom mocate them. If the Mills bill were to become a law there is not a .State in the Union that would suffer bo much or bo directly. It was planned to injure the North and benefit England, and Northern men who will aid such a scheme to injure themselves are either grossly ignorant or are something much worse. In his Goshen speech Mr. Blaine pays his respects to trusts in a way to open the eyes of the Amencan people. Every great trust that is grinding the face of the peo ple in this country is in Democratic hands and suppli8 campaign funds for the Demo cratic party. There is the sugar trust of which Havemeyer is at the head: the coal oil trust at the head of which is Senator Payne; the salt trust with Burt, of Detroit, at its head, and besides these and greater than all others the whisky trust and the cotton seed oil trust, each of which is a nurseling of the Democratic party. While pretending to war npoa trusts, they are maintaining and are maintained by tlft greatest and worst of all the trusts, and if they succeed at all in any part of the country, it will be by the lavish use of money furnished by these trusts to corrupt the elections^_ If trusts are such unholy and oppressive things, as we do believe, and asjoemocrats mereiy pretend to believe, why does not the Democratic msjority io the house and the admiuEstration try to perfect some bill to break them up or curb their ravages? Instead, nothing is attempted by Demo crats in congress but empty vaporing?, while it is transparent to the whole nation that the Democratic party is lending itself as a tool to the e trusts and drawing the balk of its campaign fund from the sub siaie? of the whiskey, sugar, coal-oil and other trusts. The Herald has twice pointed out tb e diahouesty of the Independent in quoting as part of Blaine'» utterance at Adrian, Mich., the free wool paragraph contained in the Democratic minority report of the Senate committee. And yet, the Independ ent, instead of making any correction of it? falsifying article? and fraudulent quota, tions, persists this morning in repeating its ofieDse. The organ seems to glory in its infamy. The Democracy have still in their service herelings who aspire to equal the Morey forgery crime. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. , SPIKED THEIR CENS.

It was the night for the Carter meeting and the whole populace of the Drum Lummon cam]) turned out to do honor to our next delegate. At 8:15 o'clock the special tiain Irom Helena pulled into the depot amid cheers of tbe Marysville Republican?, who had assembled there with banners, torches and a brass band to meet the Helena delegs .ion. ON BOARD WERE Hon. T H. Carter, Hon. W. H. Hunt, Dr. C. K. Colt, Hon. T. H. Kleinschmidt, R. P. Barden, George W alker, S. A. Balliet, E. T . Carter, Frank S. Lang, Joseph Davis, Wm. Sims and a round hundred more of good Republicans Irom the Queen City. As soon as tfae visitors had de barged a procès? ion was formed and marched through the principal streets of the town faliy 50Ü strong. The enthusiasm was contagious and cheer alter cheer went up for Carter along the line of march. Mr. Carter and the other speakers rode near the head of the column in a car riage escorted by the Helena flambeau club, and everywhere along the route were greeted with cheers. THE GREAT MEETING which surpassed anything ever beiore seen in Marysville, was held in a large hall that had been beautifully decorated by the lair ladie3 of the town. It was packed from ; j ladie3 of the town. It was packed from platform to door. Mr. F. J. Donahue was elected chairman of the meeting and made a few timely remarks on the ques tions at issue. Dr. C. K. Cole, candidate for the legislative council, was then intro duced and made one of his usual excellent speeches. He gave way in a short Line to Hon. T. H. Car.er, wno was received with an outburst of applause and cheering that fairly shook the hall. Wneu the enthus iasm over his introduction had subsided, Mr. Carter stepped to the front of the plat form and delivered one of the best speeches of his life. CHrter's Speech. Mr. Carter said in substance: Ladies and Gentlemen :—Marysville is associated in my mind with the earliest impressions male upon me by any com munity iu the Territory of Montana. It did not require a prophet to define the fact, eight years ago, that the immense treasures sleeping silently in the moun tains surrounding thi9 beaatiful town were destined, in tbe courœ of evente, to sup jKirt the contented, happy and thriliy pop ulation assembled here to-aigbt Th< community which has grown up in the miast of this mineral deposit, within the last ten years, is but a miniature view,—is hut a diminutive exhibition cf tbe magnificent growth that has caiamed in each and every locality throughout the length and breadth of these great United State? and territories within the last twenty-eight years. It does appear from the history of that period of time that tne American people, by virtue of their un questionable prosperity, by virtue of their achievement? in literature, in science, in art. and the development of the natural re sources of the country, have } >ecome ai one and the same time the wonder, ADMIRATION AND ENVY of all other nations and people of the civil ized eartn. It is a fact tnat daring this period of time persons irom every nation and every clime have flocked to these shores to share in the prosperity of the people ot tbe United States, a prosperity which has become known to.the remotest corners of the earth; a prosperity and coal eminent allied to political freedom whicn ha? attracted the attention of thrifty and liberty-loving people from all over the globe—and thus it is that, in addition to tne natural increase ot population, we have attracted to ourseives the best, the thrifti est and the most virtuous elements of foreign people from every nation in Europe. Well, now, it is proper and right that a people who are beset with luise theories, who are confronted wah propo sitions to change the existing order of things, should laboriously seek for the causes which have led to the prosperity which we now enjoy, to tbe end that m making a change in the system of law which now pervades this land, we do not make a mistake and clip the wings of the American eagle and the progrès? ol Amer ican enterprise. [Loud applause]. About four years ago the Democratic party by a slight majority was, through its representative, Mr. Cleveland, given the authority to control the Executive Depart ment and the lower branch oi the Ameri can Congress. It is unnecessary at this time to enquire into the causes which led to that change in the political complexion of'tne administration. It is sufficient to say that a change did occur, and that too at a time when no man could point to any particular thir j in the action of the Re publican party which justified the etiange, but the change did come, and we find tnat among the first acts of Rresident Cleveland " ^ mediam of exchange, silver dropped —yea, even beiore he was inaugurated, he eaid through tue public prints to the peo pic ot tae L nited States, and to the ob^erv St"""* 01 UW *«" b * bel "" d I j i !

In other words, that tne coinage ot silver bv the Govern ment ot tne United States should be dis continued. At the time these words were utteied by tne newly elected president, the silver product of Marysville, the silver product oi all Montana, the silver product of Colorado, and all the silver producing communities of the West, brought in the market, 8110 to 81.12]. This adverse ex pression iron the incoming Rresident of tue L nited ."states had the effect of reduc ing the product of your Marysville mines anti mills trom $1.10 and 1.12] to 90 cents on the dollar. The effect of that was this: Montana Territory produces about $11,000 - 000 in silver annually—by virtue of the ad verse position of the Democratic administration on the silver ques tion. by virtue of tbe fact that it became known that the administra tion would be inimical or adverse to silver to 90 cents, and thus every dollar s worth of silver produced here wa9 thrown upon the markets of the world at 22 to 22 : cents ritten a letter such as Benjamin Harrison^ 0 , the silver question. (Long ami co mued applause.) Well, now. how does con cern us? Montana has a populate 0 j about 150,000 to 175,000 bonis, and 150,000 to 175 000 people are, by virtu 0 f this certain act of the president ofthe United States, prevented from receiv^ two and a half million dollar? lor their silver product which they would be now receiving a. nually if he had not vriiten that letter < all. Take two and a half million dollai annually from 175,000 people and I gran you it is not much to each I one. You do not take a great deal fiom each individual, but why not, if you can leave them $2, 500,000, let them'get that much more for their product if it is in the market to get it. [Voice: "That's what.'—loud ap plause. J The orator, in tarnest and sincere lan guage, then interested and enraptured the audience is a pass. ouate outburst of oratory with a full history of the ' >lrlh of free trade; how the English en deavored to thrust it upon the straggling colonies in their early days; how Washing ton, Thoms- Jefferson ami others of the grand old patriots had bared their breast to British lead and steel to accomplish our independence and buried back the baud that would then have destroyed our op portunities to build up aad develop ; the country by manufactures: how the result of their acts laid the foundation j fr] r . the «real power and riche? of the L nited States to-day. How Cobbitt was sent over by the English government to this country in 1792 as a lobbyist to work up a ftee trade leeling in our congres?: that he stayed withat proposition fui eight long years, at the end of which time he re turned to England, having failed to im press upon the minds of the people any respect for his free trade ideas. William Cobbitt, however, having failed to convert Washington, Madison and Jefferson to his free theories, did say in his report to the party that had sent him here that he be lieved that he had "scattered the GOOD SEEDS OF FREE TRADE in this country, and tba* in time these seeds would bear fruit." He was not mistaken. After the old crop of revolu tionary patriots had passed away, after Wasüington had been laid in ins grave and Madison was no more, and Thomas Jefierson was no longer to he eon salted, there sprang up from the slut» bolding aristocracy of the South the men who picked up tne seed which Mr. Cobbit • had sown, and, upon the basis that slave y c û, an American blanket ought tobe gixid enough for any American. [Loud and con tinued applause ] If you do not want to had sown, and, upon the basis that slave labor needed no protf çtic n. tney espouse the cause of free trade with Great Britain and became promulgators of the doctrine? of free trade in tbe United Slates in 183:, and that same aristocracy is the power bt hind the the throne to-day that England is using to establish free trade in this country. [Voice—"They'll get left. Applause.] in 1 b 40 after the people of the United ; States had sampled free trade, after they had gone through a period of free trade for seven years, or theieabouts, they had an election AND OLD TIPPECANOE at that election defeated Martin Van Buren of New York at the polls with that overwhelming majority which will char acterize the defeat of Grover Cleveland by the grandson of Old Tippecanoe in No vember next. [Wild and enthusiastic ap j plaute.] Now the first act of Harrison b administration, or about that, was the passing of a protective tariff'law. Under the influence of this protective tariff law the industries of the country fiegan to re vive again, times got better, farmers were getting pay for their produce, everybody was prosperous and contented in the country, emigration began to fiow in, men were better paid I for their day's labor in the lactories and in tbe mil s, and manufactur ing became a comrnou avocation among our people once more. Tne ?j)eaker then touched on the hi.-tory of the country from 1840 to the present time, and concluded that part of his speech by saying " George Washington and his co-patnots repudiated tùe doctrine of free trade from ..792 to 1810; they repudiated it during their entire supremacy of their control of the United States, and it is the solemn duty of the people of this countrv to follow in the foot steps of the patriots of the revolution. [Loud applause ] What was good enough lor Washington ought to be good enough for ns. [Voice, " It is."] We want to go back to those days to gather a little in spiration. When we cast our votes in the ballot box, we should cast tfiem in such a manner as to determine the policy of the United States on this question. Now, just a few word in regard to • IMPORTED ENGLISH GOODS. Blankets, five pounds iu weight, were im ported from England, the blankets with the tariff' added cosi nine doliats and some odd cents,—a man would be com pelled to pay for a five pound English blanket, I think, the sum of 83 35,—-4.35 being the original cost in England ol the blanket at wholesale. Now, at tbe time these blankets were imported into the United States, blankets of Amencan man ufacture, equally good in every respect,— were being sold iu the market at $ 5 . 20 , — just half the cost of the English article with tbe tariff added, and that state of af faiis was brought about by the competition between American manufacturers. Now, if yon want to import a blanket irom England and pay 89.35 for it in preiereno to paying 85 20, why pay it aad God speed wrap yourself iu a biaaket ot American manufacture, bnt insist on buying au English imported blanket, tuen may it not lie better for you to wrap yourself in an English blanket on English soil t ' Loud applause , Upon this propsition my dear friends, we want to go back to the time w hen George Washington, that maguificen pat not and statesman, felt that it was not beneath his dignity to appeal, on inaugur ation day, in a suit of homespun cloth. We want to go back further still, seeking Home inspiration under which we may be more devoted to tlie I IKIEE B» OF OI R OWN COI NTRV. We want to go back to the time when our forefathers east the tea into Boston harbor and drank buttermilk instead [Loud applause ] Let us have America for Americans, native born and natural ized. [Hear, hear!] The speaker then referred to the Mills bill and its efiect, on wool, gave a history of the benefits derived Irom the protection of wool, and said that the question? to be presented to the people at the coming election are briefly these Do you favo: placing the Montana wool grower in com petition with the South American, tbe Australian, the Italian and the iehow on the south coast of Africa? We say, "No. We are doing very well as we are. thank you, aad we are periectly satisfied with the condition cf things that exist. [Loud applause.] They now say that the wage j will be reduced, but it is a theoretical i proposition as to whether the value of the ! article we are compelled to purchase to clothe our bodies and feed ourselves will necessarily be reduced. We will not float I out on any sea of problematical or expen ; mental government; we have got a good tiiin. and we are willing to abide by it. We du not need to experiment. It is not in our ! line to drift off into the expérimenta. We ; have a good thing and we are perfectly
