A great progressive people of a pro

TARIFF, AND WAGE EARNERS.
The republican party would appear
to bo very soliclloiiB about tho wago
earners of tho country ami especially
declares lu tho national platform J.ist
adopted. Its purpose "to maintain the
high standard of living of wngo o.iru
era of this country who nro tho most
direct benuflclnrles of tho protective
system." That sounds well, but can
hardly deceive tho average wo"k!ng
man, who from experience knows
that If he Is "tho most direct bene
ficiary of the protective system" the
sooner that system Is refonnd the
better It will he for him. 1'htvo la
no doubt that the tariff .irot rts tho
manufacturers and that It has foster
ed trusts and created monopolies.

Wo nUo hnvo evldenco that tho tariff
has hsil a Imml In creating tho pan

pression. Senator Fortiker 1ms Just declared
In a speech to tho members of the
Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce
that "there- Ib still a cloud hanging
over the business of tho country, that
cannot bo removed by tho resolutions
of a Sunshine Club" and that fear of
I tariff reform makes business generally
linens-. There are also a good ninny
uneasy worklnginen, for Henntor For
aker said that on July 31, 1007,
there was work for 20.000 more men
. In Cincinnati than there wero work-
'men to do It, but tho mercantile- agen
cies of Cincinnati now Informed him
"that there are today In Cincinnati
J from 20.000 to 22.0(10 Idlo artisans
men wlui work lit Initios, sklllod la
bor, nnd tho highest classes of labor,
so to speak."
I This acknowledgment by such nn
eminent republican leader that tho
wane enrners are hunting 11 Job In
tttoml of thu Job hunting thoin, hardly
nhows that they "tiro thu most di
rect beneficiaries of tho protective
system." If they aro It sIiowh that

ns fur n wage enrnerH nro concern
ed. I Wo hear from Pittsburg, the head
center of tho protective aystom, that
tho employes of tho steel tniRt aro
compelled to sell their small holdings
In that corioratlon which does not
add to tho truth of tho republican
declaration that those worklngmon
are tho direct beneficiaries of the
I protective system, for tho steel trust
Is very highly protected by the tariff.
Then the National Glass Hudget, of
Pittsburg, of Juno 27, reporta a dis
astrous state of affairs for tho win
dow glass workers, which la onu of
tho highest tariff protected Indus
tries, In which tho workers should
be tho most '"direct bcneflclarlea of
tho protective system." Hut It appaors
they nr0 not, for tho Budget roiiorta
that when wnges nro figured strictly
on tho sliding scale, undor which
iigreemont'tho factories nnd tho work
men have been working, that It
"won't not them nn average of $1 .1

'j Tho republican boast that tho pro
tective systom produces prosperity to
the worklngmnu Is thus shown to bo
but bait to catch suckers.
