When in neeed of anything in the above line, give us a call.
For GO years; from 1801 to 18G1, the
United States was governed by the
slave oligarchy, aided by their servile
minions , the Democrats of the North.
From 18C1 until now the country has
been governed by the progressive,
pushing Republican party. In those 23
years the United Stales hasmio5ed its
greatest period of prosperity and has
made its most marked advances, des
pite four years of terrific war .
In those '2o years the railroad system:
of the country has been dev eloped till i
the land is covered with a network of j
iron. Our manufactures have quad-f
rupled, our cities haye grown miracu- !
lously, values have cuaadrupied, agri
culture has Income a remunerative em- ;
ployment, and ihe country has become
rich and powerful. We have afforded
indu.-ements for emigation whick have :
had the effect of drawing population
from Europe so rapidly as to cause
alarm in many of the European states, j
And under the fostering care of the !
Republican party the process is still '
going on.
Are we ready to hand the destinies
of the Nation over into the hands of the
same old party, whic has forgotten
nothing and learned nothing, to change
the assurance of prosperity and pro
gress for the uncertainty of party with
out one progressive idea, Without one
well defined line of action, and without
even an agreed-upon, well-defined line
of policy?
The Republican party is pledged to
crush out the crime of polygamy among
the Mormons of Utah, by all the resour
ces of the civ.l power, and by military
force if that proves inadequate. The
Democratic Congressmen, as a rule, de
fend the Mormon iniquity on the spe
cious plea that the effort to crush po
lygamy is a blow at freedom of religion.
To elect a D.emocratic President is to
give the conirol of the Territories to
the friends of the Mormons; and that
means that this monstrous form of
wholesale prostitution under the cloak
of religion shall go on unchecked, and
spread, a moral pestilence, into the ad
joining Territories .
--The veterans of the late war are held
in ffrateful recollection by the Republi
can party, which stands pledged to
complete the great work of -pensioning
the disabled, and the widows and or
phans of those, who died to saye the
Union, To hand the reins of power
over to the Democracy is to put the con
trol of this great work in the hands of
southern leaders, men whose sympa
thies and deeds were on the side of the
rebellion. AY hat can the soldiers ex
pect from them? Certainly no more
than is already accomplished: witla the
certainty that the effort will be contin
ued to pension rebel soldiers. The
Mexican pension bill was a cunningly
devised scheme in this direction, but it
was frustrated by the Republican ma
jority of the Setate.

trade, and finding a wider market for
our productions and manufactures, es
pecially in the other countries of the
American continent. Our influence
will be extended by the acts 3f peace
by that spread of education and en
larged ideas which must follow a close
commercial intercourse of those coun
tries with our own. This policy is the
secret of the bitter enmity shown by the
English press toward Mr. Blaine,
Great Britain fears the competition of
America with her commerce, and-sees
in the adoption of a liberal and enlight
ened foreign policy by us, in the foster
ing of American shipping, a rivalry in
commerce that can but result in her
loss and our gain.
The business interests of the country
demard the election of Mr. Blaine, and
the continuation of the well-defined
policy of protection to American indus
try by means of the tariff to which the
Republican party is committed. The
Democracy, so far as it ha- any policy
at all, leans toward free trade. Each
time that the Democrats have had a
majority in the House of Representa
tives , there has been a partial paralysis
of the manufactures and importing bus
iness of thecDuntry, from fear of ignor
ant and dangerous meddling with the
tariff. To place the Government in the
hands of the Democracy would pros
trate business, from this reason. No
manufacturer will keep his machinery
going to produce goods that he can sell
only at a loss when he has to compete
with the same article produced at starv
ation wages by the pauper labor of
The financial statement of the Treas
ury for the past fiscalyear, which closed
on June SO, shows that the revenues
were decreased $oO,120,S48, as com
pared with the previous year . Of this
amount, the customs decrease was
$19,079,205; from internal revenue
$22,715,870, from miscellaneous sour
ces, $8 ,693,772 . These reductions are
due to the Legislation of a Republican
Congress, in revising the Tariff and re
ducing the internal revenue tax. This
is a large and very substantial reduct
ion , and shows that the - Republicans
mean what they say when they promise
to reduce the burdens of taxation. This
is a strong contrast to the conduct of
the present Democratic House. . The
party made loud promises of such re
duction and denounced the Republican
party without stint for still "keeping up
war taxation yet since they came in
to power in the House last December,
they have not made the slightest reduc
tion. Bear in mind that all such bills
must originate in the House of Repre
sentatives, Shall power be placed in
the hands of & party that neglects the
promises so profusely mada when it
asked for the suffrages of the people?
The Republican party is pledged to a
reduction of the revenue ; it h.is shown
by the figures given above, that it will
keep its promise . It will secure still
further relief for the taxpayer without
injury to American industries or any
destructive disturbance of business re
lations. The reduction in customs dut
ies wooud have made & much larger re
duction, but that the volume of imports
was so much greater than was antici
pated at the time the Tariff revision was
made by the last Congress. Caption
must be the rule. There must be
enough moi.ey raised to pay the expen
ses of the Government, the interest of
the public debt, and to provide for the
redemption of the bonds that will ma
ture. If the volume 'of: imports had
been less, the reduction would have
jeen much greater than was estimated.
The importations exceeded the average,
and the reduction was not so great as
liad been 'expectedT '"There must be
care exercised ; rash and inconsiderate
action will result in embarassment.
The Democratic party has in its
ranks a band of free trade fanatics,
whose wild mouthings are of incalcula
ble danger to the business "of tne coun
try. The Democracy is without fixed
principles in the matter of the tariff.
Its members profess every shade of doc
trine, from t4a tariff for revenue," to
free trade. Hurd, Morrison, Carlisle,
Hewitt, and others, are men high in the
councils of the party. If the Democ
racy is placed in power, these men will
be in a position to carry out their wild
vagaries. Their utterances in Congress
have been a constant menace to every
industry and enterprise in the couutry.
It has added enormously to the feenng
of uncertainty in business circles, and
has cramped every avenue or activity.
As uual the workingmeu have had to
bear their full share of this burden.
Manufacturers took in sail, and kept xm
tinuously :n sate waters. Their em
p'.oyees were kept down in uurubers,
and the amount of work was curtailed,
to keen within the limits of the decreased
production. The cost to the couutry
from the feeling pf insecurity, the results
of the mouthings of-these agitators, is
estimated by Henry Carey Baird to be
uotless than one thousand million of dol
lars for the period since the election of
1883. This seeniH an enormous esti
mate, but it mus-t be remembered that a
paralysis which operates upon 55,000,
000 of people soon runs up to a surpris
ing total. We have this para'ysis in
xhaL. i'ouu known as -overproductions.'
This is a verv useful word, but it is
somewhat of a misnomer. . At the pres
ent time, our manufactures in certaiu
tines aie depressed from "overproduct
ion." This means that the demand has
decreased below the average. Confi
dence has be-n lessened, no one buys
things he 'can possibly do without, aud
the demand in certain lines is curtailed.
Hence the market is overcrowded, and
overproduction" is assigned as the cause.
The moment there, is a lessening of the
hours of labor, with a decline in wages,
it: auv industry, there is a curtailment of
the dttnand for food, -clothing, houses
for the countless commodities which peo
ple will bay and use if they are jible.
This reacts upen the industries which
supply these things, the demand lessens,
and ''overproduction" sets in in that par
ticular line.
Hurd aud his confreres have been
threatening this country since the begin
ning of the session of Congress with a
long stride in the direction of free trade
Nothing has been don by the House in
that direction, it is true; but these threats
have had a powerful influence upon busi
ness. The possibility that this country
was to have poured upon it the unmar
ketable productions of Great Britain,
which has had not over three years of
real prosperity since 18GG, has ltd every
one to prepare for the threatened storm,
if possible. Nobody buys on a de61in
ing market anything unless he absolute
ly needs it, The n-Milt has beeu to bring
American manufactures to a standstill iu
almost every department. Toledo
Some time back the . Legislature of
Ohio, in response to the demand of the
people of that State, passed a high li
cense enactment, which was known
as the Scott law from the name of its
proposer. The liquor dealers to get
rid of it applied to the courts, but the
latter have just returned an evasive
decision which practically keeps the
law in force. This decision will be
worth millions of dollars to the tax
payers of that State. It must be con
teased that our State courts have too
often played into the hands of the
liquor dealers. They have iu effect
partially nullified the prohibition ea
actmeuts of the States of Kansas and
Iowa. The time has come when the
moral sentiment of the community
must array itself against the judges
who interpose legal quibbles to protect
the infamous traffic in intoxicating
drink. This is the giant evil of our
age. Over $300,000,000 per annum is
spent in this country in the purchase
of ardent spirits. The Use of liquor
must cost a vastly ".'greater eum indi
rectly, in the criminals aud paupers it
creates, while there are no figures that
an idea of the misery and the heart
break which result from the liquor
traffic. The prohibition sentimeut is
growing in every part of the country,
and every man and woman who think
of the future of their children should
unite to discountenance in every way,
moral and legal, the sale and use of
every kind of intoxicating drink.

neither the President nor the Congress
has any power to set them aside.

Kansas is a slice from the Juiciest side
of the earth, A few years ago it. was a
wilderness. Today it is the garden of
the world, Tedolent with the fragrance
of the orchard and the vintage, teeming
with the homes of thrifty people pulsing
with the vim and vigor of progress, and
mellow with the bloom of an almost per
ennial harvest, last 3 ear Kansas sent
to the east from her overflowing store
houses a golden stream of grain, filled
hundieds of their tmyty trains with the
choicest herds and flock, and, standing
on the threshold cf this year's bounty,
she sends greeting and welcome to hall
a million of her sons who would try their
fortunes on her unbroken prairies.

The Norton Courier in speaking of
the country remarks :
The present year is a prosperous one
for this country and henceforth our de
velopment will be more rapid and more
substantial than ever before. Those
who have remained' here 3 ear after year
are reaping their lewaid. Iheie is a
feeling of confidence in the country.
L?nd3 are rapidly increasing in value.
Government lands are growing scarce.
Land hunters aie exploiiiig every nook
and corner of the cou.iuy . Transfers
are being made daily. School lauds are
coming into maiket with a rush. Every
branch of business is prosperous. The
towns have a trade never before equalled
and the country is' keeping pace in pro
gress with the towns. Our population is
increasing at a rapid rate and what is
true of this county is also true of our
neighboring counties. The cry for aid
is a thing of the distant past and one
whose repetition we believe will never
occur. Our bread prairies and cheap
lands offer special advantages to those
scekimr homes, aud we gladly welcome
all who are coming to make their homes
in our beautiful counti v .
Hundreds of agriculturists are buy
ing farm machinery this" summer,
which if properly cared for ought to last
at least ten years, Most of it will be
worthless in half that time simply
because the owner failed to realize the
full meaning of the adage that "a p?n
ny saved is as good as a penny earned.'
It is not the amount a man obtains
that makes him rich, it is the amount
he saves. A machine' that is taken
apart and properly cared for when not
in use will do good work year3 and
years after its counterpart has been
thrown away by the man who had the
habit of leaving it unprotected. Then
the delays-caused by broken machine
ry, loose bolts, rotten or twisted flams', J
discovered just at the time when the t
loss of time means danger to the crop,
more than counterbalance any time,
trouble or expense incured in properly
putting away the machine. The prov
ident farmer will always clean and
house his implements as soon as the
harvest is ended. Whenever the paint
on an impl etneit shows siirns
of wearing off it ought to ho renewed,

And when tools and implements are
housed they should be placed just
where they can readily be found when
again sought for,
If a farmer exercises more thought
fullness and prudence in the care of
their .machinery, they will become
convinced that it practically represents
a'good round interest on the money
invested. Capital,
The Irish World, a very influential
paper, gives notkse to the Chicago con
vention that if either Cleveland or Bay
ard is the nominee there will be such a
stampede to Blaine as has never been
witnessed in a political campaign. The
World prefers Cen. Butler, because it
believes he would give the .country a
vigorous foreign policy. If it cannrt

support Blaine, and it will influence" a

James G- Blaine is the architect of
his own fortunes.- He began life as a
country school-teacher in Kentucky, and
was afterwards editor of a weekly news
paper in Maine, He belongs to the peo
ple, the workingeople, and has always
sympathized with their ideas nnd aspir
ation?. This is, perhaps, the, reason
why the dude newipapers and politi
cians, the blue-blooded patricians, the
persons who sport go'd-rinvnied eye
glasses nd effect, the manners and
speech of English snobs, don't like him.
Blaine and Logan are Americans
through ard through. They glory in
their own country. "Tfcey believe this
I'epublie is the greatest Nation on the
earth. They are proud of its history
and progress,' and have an unfailing
faith in its destiny. They spring from
the common people, and belong to them.
They sympathize with and have always
served the common people. And the
people are going to elect them. Atch

John Eoyle O'Reilly, the well-known
Irish poet and patriot, sent the follow
ing dispatt h to Chicago, in the 8th inst.:
"Boston, Mass., July 8. Col. A. A.
Haggar: Dislike cf Cleveland is in

be Democratic suicide. It will merely
change a million votes for Blaine. But
ler can take as many votes from Blaine
as Blaine from Cleveland.

Among other dispatches, the follow
ing were also received : -
Boaiid of Trade Office, Nf.w
York, July 8. John Kelly: A meet
ing of over COO Democrats of the Nine-
teenth Ward of Brooklyn was held last
night ard denounced Gov. Lleveiano
and the action of thu Kings county del
egates tor supporting him. and declared
that they would under no circumstances
support Cleveland at the ballot-box, and
that the delegation were not the representative-
of the people, and had gone
to Chicago through false devices and
connivance to stultify the voices of the
people. T. I. Madge."
New York, June 8. To Francis D.
Moulion, care of the Hon. B . F. Butler:
Kelly is right. Neither he nor any one
else can .carry New York labor vote for
Cleveland. Democrats lose if the State
fails them. They lose State unless city
gives them large vole. Only Butler can
give them that. Cleveland's five-cent
fare, laborer's lien, and twelve-hour ve
toes, and his Commissioner-of-Labor-Statistics
appointment, will slaughter
him here. He polled 15,t00 less than
Garfield. His only additional strength
would be man-milliner Republicans, and
they are scarce here. The Irish World
interest will be for Blaine unless it can
be for Butler , so will labor unions.
