Justify such a claim.

Would have atood aghast at their wild scheme
of creating by law a false value and would

Immoral Plea.
They have been teachi.ig the people that
because t'ao prie s cf wheat and other things
have fallen about one-half since the no called
dernonoti7Htion year, 157o I have shown w hy
thoepri x have fallen it it not equitable
that debt ,rs should bo held to pa irrore than
I half the amount of their debts in gold, that
they should be released in correspondence
with the decline of prices, and that it would
therefore bo riht to reduce by fren silver
coinage the value of tho debt paying money
by one-half.
Subject the principle to a simple tent. When
I contract a debt, I owe whut it is mutually
undersfcxxl that I am to pay. Our whole busi
ness life and social fubrie. all human inter
course, rent upon the binding force of such
understandings. Unless it be expressly under
stood, bus the debtor the slightest right or
reason to denm; '. that the creditor shull be
Bnfi.-iie.l a 1 -s amount l i payment if
wheat or cotton ( r soim f.i'.ng else ha 1 mean

one sweep of ull t',i bis by a iu ouseiin n. of tue

And yet he who has watched the Ircc coin
age agitation know. that just this appeal to
di l.tors is one of its main allurement. Listen
to their spcecj i s, read their literature, and you
meet ev r recurring now in soft spoken cir
cumlocution, now in sly Mugvetiou, now in
the language of brazen cynicism the promise
that free coinage will enable the debtor to ret
rid of hi obligations by paying enly a pari of
them. It is a scheme of wanton repudiation
of private as .veil a public debt, not as if we
cov Id not pay in lull, but because we would
prefi r not to pay in full the practice ntor'el
to by the fraudulent bankrupt and this sa .e
tioued by law, s a part of our national policy.

Fellow citizens, think this out. It i a grave
matter a matter of vitul import to the exist

such moral principle to his children educAUa
them for fraud, dishonor and the penit ntiary.
TLe public men w ho teach such moral princi

contempt ar.d abhorrence of mankind. The
nation that adepts such moral principles can
not live. It will rot to death in too hmtbHome

cepting wich moral principle be tbia republic,
it ill deal a blow to the credit of democrutio
Institution from which the cauv of fre gov

Hut, thank God, the American people will
rever accept such moral principle. The
American people wiil, h fore election day ar

means. They will indignantly repeal the un
apeakahle insult offend to them by the poli

of honest men upon tha oCrr of such a bait.
Tby will know how to resent the deep di
grace inflicted upon the nation in the eyes of

Tlie dttvot I'ifirt of tarifT ri'ductiou
upon certain fariniiiLf industries hus
alivmly la'eti citnsiilcri'il at smni Knejth
in these columns. The indirect losses
of the same class oT producers, through
suspended industries of other kinds,
are iilmost as (,-ivat, though not finite
so apparent.
N'cxt in value to the farm products
of the state, and following close upon
them, arc the products of the pine anil
hardwood forests, the pine lumber,
lath and .shinylo cut alone, having, iu
its Lest years, reached a value of over
S i'i.oto.Hoo. When these two industries
are I o min,tf the pine and hardwooil
forests and mills furnish the best mar
ket then' is for the products of Mich
igan farms. The lumber camps, in
winter, create a demand for immense
quant ities of hay. oats and bran, to-o-ethcr
with market for draft horses.
They are also heavy consumers of
every staple article of food for man, es
pecially for those pnslucts in which
Michigan excels, whent Hour, beans,
potatoes, apples, beef cattle and pork.
Following the brcakiny up of the lum
ber camps in the spring comes the
starting of tiie sawmilU. which con
tinue the demand throuc.h the .summer
and fall. In the most prosperous years
for lumbering the farmers north of the
I)., it. H. A: M. railway have had a mar
ket for their pnslucts almost at their
own doors and at their own prlcvs.
Chancres in the tariff have had an
immediate elTcet upon thi industry by
t ransfiTrinir a er)M.l deal of the sawmill
work to Canada, while the ireneral de
pression of business has oreatly re
duced the demand for lumber. Not
since ls.-)7, when it was in its infancy,
has tln lumber business of Michigan
been so paralyzed as dunncr the present
war. Operations in the camps hist
winter were smaller than for many
year before, and the mills are runnincf
lio ht this summer. Slocks on hand are
heavy and their owners titnl it ditlicult
to realize on them. As a result the
farmers haw lost the excellent market
which they formerly had in the woods
and the sawmill towns, and haw to
pay freight charges and commission
before they can "ret Detroit prices,
while they become competitors with
their brethren from other parts of the
Hate in the Detroit and eastern mar
kets. The depression in this one in
dustry has made a difference of many
hundred thousand dollars in their re
ceipts since the Wilson bill passed.
Next to the lumber camps and saw
mills, the mines of the upcr peninsula
employ more men and pay out more
In wacs than any other sincrle indus
try in the state. In 1 '.).', before the
election turned the country over to the
Democracy, many of the iron mines of
northern ichifan were runniny nitfht
and day shifts, with as larire a force of
men as they could work to advantage.
Wages were goisl and the men and
their families were liberal purchasers
of clothing and of all fosl pnslucts.
With the threat of tariff changes came
reduced prices for iron ore. and the
threat was followed by the enactment
of the Wilson tariff, which dealt to
iron manufacture a heavier blow than
to any other branch of manufacture
except that of woolen goods. Within
one year after its enactment that law
'doublet', the importation of bar iron,
destroyed the cotton industry in this
country and closed up the factories,
almost doubled the imports of steel in
crots and bosuns, and increased the im
ports of tin plate." The direct result
of these increased imports is a lessened
demand for American iron ore and the
evil is aggravated by the general de
pression of business caused, in part, by
the same tariff. The result is disas
trous to the Michigan mining district.
During the past six weeks, when ope
rations ought to have been more active
than at any other time in the year,
mine after mine lias ceased work, and
in some case the pumps even have
b en stopped, allowing the mines to
)ill with water. Many of the miners,
instead of being the most liberal of
p.irchascrs. are likely, during the eom
) ig winter, to require aid from public
hppropriations or private charily.
The purchasing and consuming power
f thousand. of families has tiers been
seriously impaired. Not only that, but
many of them have become producers
of farm and garden products When
the miners were earning from S"'.!0 to
r t . r t a day. with plenty of work, they
had neither time nor inclination to
work farm or garden under the disad-
a utages of soil and climate that exist in
lhat region. Iut. under the stress of
enforced idleness and reduced pay, they
have undertaken both. Last winter
witnessed the novel spectacle of farm
ers' institute in a region which before
lhat had possessed little of the quality
of an agricultural district, and another
M-rics of institutes has been arranged
for this winter.
The Wilson tarifT ha t litis helped
fo ileatroy n cjooil market nml to
raise a competitor. Do lite farmers
of lower Michigan want four yearn
more of ll?
All the prosperity enjoyed by the
American people, from the founding of
the 1'niteil States down to the present
time, has been under the reign of pro
tective principles; and all the hard
'imcs suffered by the American people
have been preceded either by a heavy
reduction of the duties on imports, or
by a threat of such reduction, or by
insuflicient protection, thin refuting
all free trade theories on the subject.

Tbe Halberd.

It is curioua to note how tho Teutouio

and finally the Swiss made play with
their halberds, an improvement on the
The halberds had a point for thrust

tho Kiddle and above all a broad, heavy
blade, "most terrific, weapons (valde

of Wintertliur, "cleaving men asunder
like a wedge and cutting them into

A Cnrion Divorce.
The charming old Duchess Wilhelmine
of yieswick-Hol.-tein, grandaunt of the
present empress of Germany, was the
divorced wife of King Frederick VII of
Denmark. The duchess, who subsequent
ly married the younger brother of the
present king, had no alternative left her
than to demand and obtain a dissolution
of her union with Frederick, for her
place in his affections and at the head of
the household had been usurped by her
French modiste, who was Mibsequeutly
invested by the lato king with the title
of Countess Danner. Many years later
ho yielded to her importunities and le
galized his relations with her after a
fashion by a morganatic marriage.
Notwithstanding her antecedents fchfl

Can Temper Copper.

ered the lost art cf tempering copper fo
that the metal may bo utilized in place
of steel tor many purposes whero corro

has made both flat and coiled springs of
great elasticity, has made good knifo
blades, and, best of all, is able to weld
tho metal itself and weld it to iron or

I would iievrr have the use .f my limbs

that can be better imagined than tieseijbed.
