Ik a recent decision Judge Gresham,

William Wade Dudley of ■'Blocks-of

Harrison. He "elected" the one aud
cheated the other, yet both have pre

A LaBok and active "home mark*«" is
better for the farmer and producer than
all the markets of the world, by a very

What the condition of the farmer re
quires now is a larger and more active

a failure. More of the same dose will
kill agriculture altogether.

Erastl'8 Winan asys that reciprocity
between Canada and this country is
important than reciprocity with South
America. Canada has only about

South Americas States have and about
one-eighth the bulk of trade. It seems
that Mr. Wlman esteems his hobby
bigger animal than Mr. Blaine's.

The increase In the value of silver,
wblch Representative McKinley boasts,
is a fictitious or paid-for increase. If
government were to offer to pay one
dollar a bushel for the surplus output
wheat, the price of wheat would advance,
but the people would pay for the ad vance.

Minister Whitelaw Rkiii cuts
curiums figure in Paris requesting
French legislators not to pass laws pro
JiibiUog the imporla'.iou of American
pork on the ground of "friendship, duty
and policy." Why would not the same
plea prevent the Republicans of this
country from the enactment of laws pro
hibitory of French commerce especially
when a majority of the people of this
country are opposed to such laws, and
the country is undergoing a serious de
pression of trade because of those al

So far as the census reports have gone
they show a greater relative increase in
population, in wealth and in Industries
for the Southern states than for the
Northern stales,
states have retrograded in population
and industries during the last decade.
In the iron industries, a comparison
made by the eminent statistician Carroll
D. Wright, who is assisting Superintend
ent Porter, shows that wages are higher
in the South than in the North, and that
what was formerly regarded as highly
paid labor in the North is in reality cheap
The profound silence of the Republi
can papers on the patriotic platform
adopted, and admirable candidates chosen
by the Democrats,is made more emphatic
by a sporadic and noncoutagious editorial
now and then from one of the distressed
organa feebly condemning them. The
platform is ably and truthfully written;
the candidates are conspicuous for their
personal worth, influence, integrity and
their abilty to perform the duties of the
respective offices to which they will cer
tainly be elected. The organs cannot
dispute either proposition successfully
hence they wisely keep silent.
If It were true, as the Morning News
pretends to contend, that the protective
duty doss not increase the prices of
goods, then the manufacturer must pay
less for labor or make less profit than
the English manufacturer. The tariff
writer on the News is certainly not
obtuse as ho would wish to appear. He
cannot preteud to m«fn(jtia that our
mUlMuittnH can sell their goods the
same prices as the English manufacturée*
and at the same time pay better wages and
make greater profits, for that is the low
tariff, free-trade Democratic contention.
He does contend that our manufacturers
pay higher wages and eatu better divi
dends than the English manufacturers,
so that how he can figure out the simple
arithmetical problem that the product of
those two increased items will be the
same in price as the product of cheaper
labor and less dividends is a mystery
which only the tariff-befuddled editor cf
a paper trying to write protectionism
articles in the face of common-sense and
a liberal educatiou can understand,
In connection with McKinley's apology
for the Inefficiency of the Fifty-first
Congress aud his apostrophe to the Mc
Kinley bill, recommended so appealingly
by the distressed Republican papers, the
people should read Secretary Blaine's
criticism that there is not a line or a
section of the bill calculated to promote
the sale of a bushel of wheat or a barrel
of pork, aud Senator Allison's criticism
that the legislative business has been
delayed till the appropriations for the
last fiscal year were exhausted before the
appropriations for the
fiscal year, which
July 1st, could be considered,
plies to the McKinley key note to the
campaign can be found in the speeches
of his Republican calleagnes.Butterworth,
Anderson, Biggs and McKenna, and of
the Republican Senators, Plumb and
Ingalls. These Republicans may be used
as witnessess against each other. But
terworth is a fair offset to McKinley and
Plumb is a fair offset to Aldrich, while
that masterly Republican leader, to
whom the party kuees have
heretofore been bent in
ject homage, James O. Blaine,
be used to upset both factious with
his reciprocity battering ram. The Re
publicans can derive little comfort from
the McKinley key note, because it sounds
a discord even in his own party. Many
men. even greater than he, will not
dance to that tune.

The necessity of re-eleoling Speaker
Reed to Congress has become an admin

The assistance of the Navy Department
has been invoked aud every means possi
ble is being employed to seduce Demo

licans with promises of work at the pub

Monongahela and Lancaster are now ly
ing at the yard waiting to be repaired,
but work or. them h*S not begun yet.
These two vessels were sent to Kittery,
apparently, for no other purpose in the
world than to help Reed out, aud on the
strength of their presence at Kittery
mechanics of every kind are being prom
ised good paying jobs if they will only
turn in for Tom Reed. In addition to this
plan of segregating votes aud creating
sentiment tor the "mighty man from
Maine," a technicality of the Federal
law has been used to disfranchise 514
naturalized voters at Biddefordou a com
plaint filed before a Republican judge.
Some of these men have been voting for
eighteen years and the real objection to
them is that they are Democrats, but the
nominal complaint is that they filed
their papers before a "recorder" who
performs the duties of a "clerk" in
Biddeford and the Federal law says the
record of the naturalization of a voter
shall be made by "a court of reeords
having common law jurisdiction, a seal
and a clerk."

The Annual Excursion of the Wilming

The Wilmington Crabbing Club went
on its fifth annual crabbing excursion
yesterday. The yacht Brandywine left
her moorings at 9 o'clock iu the morning
with the club on board aud sailed to the
mouth of the Christiana river. The day
was spent in that vicinity.
Clarence W. Pyle was commandant of
the yacht and he explained to his com
panions the delicate art of catching
crabs. Warren Bullen, the champion
crab cooker of Delaware, was
on board and his reputation bad
gone so far before him, that the crabs
recognized him at sight. Clarence W.

party had a corner on crabs, as they say
in New York,

New Castle, August 29 —The Elkton
and New Castle Base Ball Clubs gave a
beautiful exhibition of ball playing at
Battery Park yesterday afternoon before
a crowd of 700 spectators. Both clubs
presented strong teams and the fielding
work on both sides was great. The
visitors arrived here in carriages, and
after au hour's sharp practice, the game
was called at 4 o'clock by Umpire Parker
of Elkton. Canipfield/eof the celebrated
Houston club of Chester, was in the box
for the visitors and held the home club
down to four hits, but they were timely
ones, aud these, assisted by three costly
errors of the visitors, brought in six
runs. Elkton played a splendid game in
the field, the work of Gibson and E.
Morgan being especially good.
Langston did good work for the home
club iu the early part of the game, but
his arm giving away, Skelley of the
Dauntless, relieved him and pitched a
very effective game. Madden's work
behind the bat was superb, he catching
both twirlers with perfect ease. The
playing of Carlin and Shearer was very
strong, the former making two of the
four hits.
In the sixth inning, Shearer, assisted
by Skelley, played a neat trick on Per
kins, who had just reached second base
that caused roars of laughter. Shearer
tried to touch the runner before he
reached his base, but failing to do this,
he stood over the bag, rubbing bis hands
together, with the ball under his
Skelley faced the batter aud made some
awful efforts to curve the imaginary ball
in his hand. Perkins walked ten feet
away from his base, and Shearer quickly
put him out
The umpiring of Parker was very good,
although he made one bad decision
against Vallette, who made a two base
hit, but Parker called it "foul,
