Northern tribune.
lie Thinks II M Plurality Will Be 40,000.
From Detroit Evening Journal.
"Alger will carry the State by a plu
rality of 40,0CD," remarked Judge J. B.
Tattle, of East Tawas, in the Russell
House yesterday. "There Is perhaps no
employer in the country who has treat
ed his subordinate with more considera
tion than has Gen. Algtr. It is quite
amusing to observe the regularity with
which he Is called upon by the brawney,
red-shirted, heavy-booted backwoodsmen
who happen to visit Detroit. At times
four or five of them will sally up into his
office, oftentimes" quite hilarious from
too frequent ''treat4 during their trips.
The General lavariably meets them with
the greatest courtesy proffers them his
arm chair, passes the cigars around, and
soon the party are as much at home dis
cussing backwoods life as if they were
in their log cabins drying their wet
stock in 2s by a blazing log fire. The
same courtesy is extended br Mrs Alsrer.
Should the wives of any of the foremen
happen to visit Detroit she lnvaribly
finds them out and insists upon enter
tainine them at her home.
"And this is mo new thing. Gen, Alger
has maintained this same policy for 15
years past. A skillfull physican is em
loved by the and attends any employe
r their families free of charge. An em
filoye sick or disabled receives his pay as
f on duty. Should a man be so in hired
as to unfit him for his ujuat work, some
light employment is always found for
him. You see such a record can't fail to
to count among the laboring men sf the
State. The Northern Peninsula Is solid
forAlgxr, aad the true merits of the
man will have their weight among the
masses in every corner of the state.
Protection v.s. Free Tiade.
In a great meeting at Nashville a few
days ago the Hon. Leonidas C. Houirk, Ke
publican nominee for Congress was deliv
ring an an address en Protection versus
Free Trade. He appealed to the expert
ence of the old men present and asked
them if they did not remember the hard
times the repeal of the tariff in 1842
brought upon the country. He told
them that Free Trade would flood the
country with goods until they broke
down the American manufacturer, and
then the prices would go p. He point
ed oat that evervtime we have had Pro
tection manufactured articles have de
creased in price. Then, suddenly turn
lag to the audience, he said:
"Under this Free-trade tariff for rev
nue only policy that prevailed in 1860
Jack H all how much did you get for
your corn?"
Jack Hall "About thirty-six cents.'
"How much is it worth this year?"
"Sixty cents. '
"Wt 11, that is nearly 100 ier cent dif
ference between a tana for revenue on
lv and a tariff for Protection."
"Howmueh per pound for your hog
in law?"
"About VA cants' (A voice in the
audience, about 1M cents.) "1H cents
That would make about of a cent on
foot. Well suppose It was three cents
and suppose bacon was then worth four
cents, how mnch is it now?
Mr. Hall "We get 10 to V cents."
"Three hunired per cent difference be
tween the two policies for the product of
the hog."
"Hew much for your eggs in I860?
How much a dozen, Jack?"
"Three or four cents."
"How much now. Jack."
"Fifteen or twenty cenjs."
"How much did you get for flour then,
per 100 pounds?"
"About $1.50."
"And how much do you get now?"
"We get $3.50 now.'11
"How about mutton. I suppose a
good sheep was worth about fifty cents."
Jack Hall "That was about the
"Fifty cents for a sheep In 1SC0! and
now you get $2.50."
A voice, "A good sheep is worth $3.CD."
"How much did you get for your cow
In those days?"
"Ten dollars for the best one."
"Ten dollars for the best cow
in the country, and now you
would not drive a cow home that you
could buy for $10.
"Oh, how the farmers are oppressed by
this rascally Republican tariff."
If all be trno which is charged, that
which remains is the least discreditable
act laid against him. But it is not true.
It is a vile falsehood, and its real object
is Mrs. not Mr. Blaine. Mrs. Blaine is a
noble, high minded woman, has made her
husband a good wife through more than
thirty years, has presided over a happy
home, and the sole effect of this slander,
as far as it ean have any effect, is to
mortify her and wound a household of
innocent children. In this respect it is
the basest and foulest Job of scoundrel
lsm that ever found its way into an
American canvass, and hence we have
stigmatized it, and all honest Democrats
have disowned it. Louisville Courier'
Convincing Figure.
From the Toledo Blade.
One of the claims of the Free Trade
theorists is that the wages of working
men would be higher under Free Trade
than under a protective tariff. Tneir
course of reasoniug is this; that Free
trade would increase our manufacturers
and call for the employment of more
people and that this demand for Jabor
would increase ive rate ox wages, ui
course the first statement is false. But
grant it true for the sake of argument;
then, as England has been for many
years a Free Trade country, the rate of
wages there should bo higher than in
America, under a protective tariff. The
reverse, nowever, is me case, lie re-
Eort of the Massachusetts Bureau of
labor Statistics gives comparative ta
bles of the wages paid in that state and
iu England. From this document we
give the following extract, the occupa
tions selected being all pursued in Ohio
and hence the figures have an interest
to our own people:

Printing 11 87 6 6:
Stonecutters 14 89 S 68
Wooden goods Zi 19 5 67
The above contains an argument mat
no Free Trader can successfully answer
The whole matter is embraced in a nut
shell. If Free Trade prevailed in Amer-
ca, either our manufactures would have
to shut ud shoo, or wages would have to
come down to the English standard.
The reduction of wagei of all men em
ployed in manufactures would cause a
reduction in the pay of wageworkers of
all kinds. Experience teaches that this
is the inevitable result of a wholesale
reduction. Wrages come down all along
the line.
Now will some of the experts who
have been figuring on the Free Trade
side have the kindness to figure out
what compensating advantage Free
Trade would cive the working classes to
atone for so great a reduction in wagqs?
Hend rick's Kecord.
From the Toledo Blade.
He has been a life long office-seeker.
He was appointed Commissioner of
the General Land Office by Pierce, and
it is significant that he left the office
richer than when he took it.
When the war began, he was, and con
tinued to be, one of its most bitter oppo
He organized the Knights of the Gol
den Circle, or "Sous of liberty," a treas
onable secret order, pledged to aid the
South in the struggle.
In 1802, through the influence of this
Order. Indiana wa earied bv the Demo
crats, and Hendricks was elected to the
United States Senate as a reward.
As Senator he voted against every bill
to raise money to prosecute tho war
acrainst armed treason,
Because thev would aid in obtaining
money to pay the soldiers, he was one of
the five Senators who voted against the
tariff act of 1804 and one of the three
who voted against the Internal revenue
bill of the same vear.
He voted against tho draft act of 1804
He voted acainst the passage of the
supplementary enrollment act of July
ne opposed the employment of colored
lie voted acraiust and opposed in every
way tha Constitutional amenumentaior
ever abolishing slavery.
He opposed the Fonrteentn Amend
In short he opposed any and every
measure devised for putting down the
rebellion, and advocated every one mat
eould embarass the Government in Its
struggle for the perpetuity of the Union.
When tne states aegan to secede, in
1800. Hendricks stood by Buchanan in
denvlncrthat the government had the
right to "coerce a sovereign State."
When the war began, he left the First
Presbyterian church of Indianapolis be
cause its pastor urged his people to sup
port the government.
He arraigned all war measures as in
tollerant and tyrannical, and declared
in a sneech on January 8th, 1802 that
if the war meant the abolition of slavery
he should advise the Northwest to -'look
out for itself."
In his Shelbyville speech in 18C3 he
said: , '. '
At any moment I am ready for compromise
and adjustment upon the basis of a restored
Union to give the South all rights under the
same constitution, and such guarantees as may
make their rights secure.
As the Governor of Indiana he pardon
ed Democratic contractors who had
swindled the Government, Collectors of
Customs who had committed frauds,
persons who had violated the internal
revenue laws, ad Rebel guerrillas who
came over into Indiana from Kentucky
and killed an office of the Union army.
He is a selfish, eorrupt and unprinci
pled demagogue, who will betray any
personal friend for his own advance
ment, as he did McDonald in 1880 and
in the present year at Chicago.

Mrs. II. M. Tracev Cutler, of Cobden.
111., in a letter to the Independents, pub-
nsneu in the women's journal, thus
covers one weakness of the course being
pursued by the Independents:
The want of moral insight which has
been shown is among the most unac
countable freaks of this present defec
tion. Had the Democrats brought for
ward Thurman, whose correct life Gar
field so touchlngly praised, one might
Dave seen some reason for your conduct.
But to follow the lead of such a man as
Cleveland, and to gloss over his crimes
as some of you have done, is among the
monstrosities of sophistry. You have
not in this instance the excuse of re
markable administrative ability to set
off against a corrupt private life, ac
cording to the showing of several of our
leading men. You admit his moral and
social delinquencies. You show him to
De me boon companion of men who were
the betrayers of their families, and make
his sins, most loathsome, almost count
to his honor.
This candidate for tho ebiefest Dlace
in the Nation is, by your own admission,
a man frem whom delicate sensibilities
should shrink. You offer to the ladies
of the land the indignity of filling the
White House with a dishonored charac
ter, whose vileness, or whose weakness,
should set him apart from social emi
You offer to the nations of the world
the affront of putting a disreputable
man in the high position of bead of our
national household, a man whom the
wives and daughters of foreign embas
sadors should shun rather than houor.
iou commit to tne lianas or mis man,
who, by your showing after his charac
ter had had time to mature, was either
so weak or so yile as to be overcome by
the seductions of a woman said to be
vile already, the great interests of the
Nation, knowing that half the betrayal
or me interests of nations has come
tnrougn tne enticement oi women.
Could such a man withstand the allure
ments of the fair courtesan, employed
by designing men t betray great inter
ests? He is, according to your own ad
missions, unfit to bo trusted with a Na
tlon's welfare.
ureal names have been mentioned as
sanctioning your theory that a man may
ne Dad in ms private life and yet serve
the publie with fidelty. But in this you
have vainly uncovered the nakedness of
lives that might have been sublime but
have gone out in diminished splendor.
1 hey never attained to the moral emi
nence they should have done, because of
the taint they took from the grandeur of
clean, nooie lives.
How will your chosen candidate,
Cleveland, stand up before George Q.
taanon, me Mormon delegate In Con
gress, and argue the question of the
monogamic family? The advocate of
plurality will say "I do not dishonor the
woman who consents to bear my off

not the Nation sanctioned us by indors

Of the woman'herself I have said noth
ing. She is said by some to have been a
reputable person working for her chil
dren and conducting herself in a credit
able, womanly way. liy others she is
reported dissolute and unworthy. If he
chose such an associate as the latter,
what must we say of his Mortal chaiac
ter, and how must we value ourselves as
