It was a very natural act on the part of the Democratic Congress therefore to put agricultural Implements or. the free list, to put fence wire also on the free list and the baggaglng arid ties which the southern farmer needs and uses for his cotton. It added lumber and laths and Bhlngles and leather and shoes, and salts and meats, funking not of the farmer alone, hut Of all of us who are struggling to live and pay our h?ls. But such changes did not comport with the ideas and plans of the thustees and the President vetoed the free list. 1 dar" Bay lie was right from his point of view, for he represented the trustees, and not the people.

Republican administration, no Repub? lican Congress, has attempted to serve tlie farmer as he ought to be served lu tho matter of credit. It is practt ctiily Impossible for the farmer to bor? row the money on the ttliid of securities ordinarily demanded at the banks, it does not serve his purpose to borrow it tor the short periods insisted upon by most bankers. Ho needs, rather, long credits, and he needs them on his own kind of security. He can't be mortgaging his farm every time he needs a llttlo money. Other countries have discovered how to assist' him An admirable system Of agricultural so? cieties has been developed in Ireland; and an excellent one In G-ermany, and tlie present Democratic Congress has done nothing netter than to provide for a careful investigation of this sub? ject with a view to early action, so that the law may be titled to the crea tton of these new Instruments of bus? iness which the farmer so much needs and ought to have."
