Trescoti, Publisher. Random Shots. The invitation which the labor unions of Chicago gave to Gov. McKinley to address them, is one of the straws that shows which way the wind blows. The work iugmen are beginning to awaken to the fact that a protective policy is not all for the benefit of the "rob ber baron." They have ascertained the truth that it is not the rich alone who are benefitted by pro tection. The "bloated" monopo list bloats all the more when we have low wages and his champagne comes in free of duty. His money goes farther uuder free trade than under a protective tariff because he pays lower wages. In time of industrial depression he is com*, fortable. The man who works for his daily bread is the one who suffers. When wages go down it is still the wage earner who is hurt. • » * We are often cited to the opera tion of free trade In England and told about its beneficent results. The fact is that the ouly good that policy has done in that country is confined to the wealthy classes. The chasm between the rich and poor has been constantly widened. The laboring man only receives for his toil a bare subsistence. Wages are very low. Workmen are in poor demand. It is a fact that labor yields such a small income that with them tobe once a laborer is always to be one. He who works for a daily wage can never better his condition. While free trade has proved its capability of adding to fortunes which are already co lossal, it has also demonstrated its capacity to grind down the poor. * * There seems to be some sort of fatality which pursues the laboring man from the dawn of life to its close. He is easily deluded. The crafty free trader seems to under stand his disposition and deceives him with a readiness and complete ness that is surprising. He tri umphs to the extent that the wage earner walks up to the p^lls and deliberately votes to cut his own throat; to lower his wages; to take the food from his family and the shoes from the feet of his innocent babe. The most prolific cause of our present hard times, if not the only one, is the short advance which wc have made in the direction of free trade. That advance has cut short our production, sent our gold to foreign countries, flooded our markets with the products of pau per labor, lowered our wages and along with it our standard of living and sowed misery broadcast in the land. * * And yet the workingman delib erately voted to bring these things about. Of course he did not be lieve that his vote would produce the result that it did. He can see it now. But it serves to show how he can be deluded. Will he do better next time ? It is quite a fall for sheepherders to tumble from forty to thirty dollars per month. It is a long step downward for the sheep shearer to come down to five cents a head, as they have in some parts of Montana. Free wool is directly responsible for this. Our democratic friends are breaking their necks in their wild endeavors to fix the blame upon something else. But the fact remains that when our woolgrowers are brought into direct and unpro tected competition with cheap foreign wool, which is produced by cheap labor and brought here by cheap ocean freights, he must cut wages or be engulfed beneath the wave of financial disaster. * * The democrats have relied upon their powers of deception in the past. They will do so in the future. The man who drives the quill does not underrate those pow ers. He has an admiration for that subliu e genius which seems to be able to go to the laborer, on any issue, which may come up, and not only tell him that white is black but make him believe it. There are sheep men in this country who did not believe that placing wool upon the free list would lower the price of their clip. They believe it now. There is a perfect unanimity of opinion on that subject. But it is a poor time to lock the stable after the horse is stolen. The enemy is on I he alert and if we are not watchful they will make another raid upon us and we will tind it out after it is too late and another horse is gone. # * Do not forget that the democrat s have told us that they intend to go on uutil we have free trade, pure and simple. They will never cease their efforts until our labor is brought down to the level of the lowest and most ill paid savage. It is a favorite axium of theirs that water will seek its level. So it will, unies? there be an obstruc tion. Wages will also seek a level unless there be an obstruction. That obstruction is a protective tariff. "We believe in a tarifTwhkh will protect the homes and firesides of! America against ail the world." Ouill Driver. | j Commissioners' Proceedings, ^Choteau, June 3, 1895.
