THE GREAT ISSUE.
Pith and Point of the Po litical Battle. THE PRESS AND PLATFORM. Democratic Doctrine on Tariff Re form as Taught by the Great Leaders East aud West. The Pilot, a paper published at Evans ville, Ind., says 4000 colored men in In diana will vote for Cleveland and Thur man. If the tax imposed on the people of the United States, on the pretext that it is necessary to maintain the rate of wages, should be paid directly to tbe workers, it would mako them all rich men.— [St. Paul Globe, Dem. When have times been better ? When have our merchants been more prosper ous, our manafacturers more pushed with business than under Grover Cleve land's administration? Why change a safe man for an untried man?—[Cleve land Plain Dealer, (Dem.) The Newark charter election, showing a Democratic majority of 700 and a Democratic gain of 2,000, would seem to prove pretty conclusively that the "tariff scare" isn't working this year. A buga boo which has been found out is a very harmless campaign spook.—[New York World, (Dem.) Mr. Carnegie adds that all this fuss about trusts is nonsense. He never knew any capitalists to make money by trusts. On the contrary, quite the reverse; and, in fact, if we may believe Mr. Carnegie, the outcry against trusts is mere fiddle faddle. Mr. Blame thinks trusts are private matters and nobody's business, and his friend Mr. Carnegie says ditto to Mr. Blame.—[New York Herald, (.Ind). Mr. Blame's third speech on trusts es tablishes a third distinctive idea which he entertains on the subject. First he considered them "largely private af fairs;" next "largely State affairs;." and now they are peculiarly Democratis affairs. Those successive steps in the evolution of an opinion photograph the exigencies of the campaign.—[Spring field Republican, (Ind.) The Boston Advertiser discovered that a tidal wave of Republicanism was sweeping through the old rag and junk in dustry in Massachusetts somo two months ago on account of the Mills bill. It might start an investigation to deter mine the velocity and temperature of the wave now that the Senate proposes to put rags on the free list. Will the rag men have to vote the Prohibitiou ticket as the only one at all likely to help the rag industry?—[Providence Journal, (Ind.) The franking privilege is abominably abused by members of Congress and by rascals who forge the names of members of Congress, in order to distribute cam paign literature broadcast in the country at the public expense. Tho wav to .cut this corrupt practice up by the root would be to abolish the franking privil ege. Long experience has shown that ie is a privilege that cannot be intrusted to the average Congressman with any guar antee of its honorable use.—[Philadel phia Record, (Ind). If they sometimes seem deficient in quality, they have the compensating merit of unlimited quantity. It is cred itable to the Kepablican candidate's con stitution that he is able to stand the strain. We have read, as a matter of duty, his whole series of talk up to date, and' take pleasure in certifying that there is nothing in them which could excite the mind of youth or delay the after dinner nap of age. His rhetoric is no wild steer or bucking bronco, but a good, safe old brindle cow, at which even chil dren needn't be frightened.—[New York Sun. The following table will show what this high tariff has done for the manu facture of wool in the decade between 1870 and 1880: 1870 1880 Establishment* 2,891 1,990 Capital invested. $98,834,531 $90,005,564 Hands 80,053 80,504 Spindles ...... 1,845,490 1,756,740 Wages $26,777,675 $115,836,392 Material 96,432,601 100,845,611 Product $165,405,358 $100,606,721 During the decade the population in creased 25 per cent., while the number of hands employed in tbe industry in creased only 8 per cent., and the wages of each employee decreased $38 per annum. —[Exchange.] There has never been in Democratic Legislature any opposition whatever to liberal provisions for the colored educa tional and charitable State institutions. These institutions are voluntarily estab lished and supported by Democrats. The party is in the ascendant by over whelming majorities, and does not have to make these liberal provisions through any consideration of party needs or party policy. The party has no thought of presently reclaiming the colored people from Republican control. The sole object has been to enlighten the race and fit the colored people for the duties and responsibilities of their position.— [Galveston News, (Dem.) A special to the Age from Flint, Mor gan county, Ala, says that Republican agents from Indiaua have been in that section for several days, employing Negroes to go to Evansville and other points in the Hoosier States. The special gives names of about twenty Negroes who were sent to Evansville to-day. and says their names and descriptions have also been forwarded to prominent Dem ocrats in Evansville. Several men from Indiana are now in North Alabama en gaging Negro voters, and a large num ber of them will be shipped North. It is said that Negroes are given transpor tation to and from Indiana and paid $1 a day. They are also promised work and good wages if they prefer to remain North. It is understood that the major ity of them will be sent to Evansville and Indianapolis.—[N. Y. World. The Kansas City Times prints a letter written by Henry Booth, Chairman of the Republican State Committee of Kan sas, to a leading Republican of that State, in which be says: The labor union vote, Martin's popu larity and the heavy men the Democrats have nominated for Congress are playing havoc with us. Everything seems to be at sea, and heaven only knows where the revolt will end. We can't talk high protection to the farmers, for they not only give us the laugh, but won't attend our meetings. We have worn the bloody shirt threadbare. There is absolutely nothing left for us to do but to pitch into our adversaries. I advise you, then, in the present emergency to give the labor union men , aud speak on local issues only. At all events we must not allow the labor union to carry Pawnee, as you say they will. Rather than consent to that I would withdraw and have my friends elect the Democratic nominee, as I have no sympathy for these beggars. Reverses like that in Newark and that in Mains, losses from a column already THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 24, 1888. too week to win, and a gain for a Demo crat ie force already large enough to make victory sure, are doubly significent. They shown not only a defeat inevitable, but that it will be overwhelming. To add to the discomfiture of the protection ists there is the tremendous increase in the registered vote of New York and Brooklyn. In the first day of four in New York and the first two or three in Brooklyn 15,000 more voters have en rolled their names than came out in 1884, and this means a corresponding in crease in the Cleveland majoritjun these two cities and in the State. Plainly, the powder of the alarmists is burned. The only resource they had—"tariff scare" — has been used up' It is now only a ques tion of the extent of the victory for honest tariff reform—[New York Times, (Ind.) A delegate Convention of railroad men, representing, it was said, between forty and fifty thousand voters in the State, met here six weeks ago and appointed a committee to interview the Republican and Democratic candidates for Governor. The points to be ascertained were how the candidates stood as regards labor in terests, what they thought of the em ployment of private detectives during strikes, how they regarded organized labor, and what they would do, if elected, to ease the burden of State taxation. The Convention met again yesterday to hear the committee'w report The com mittee said that Republican candidate Fifer had given an unsatisfactory answer to each one of the questions, but Demo cratic candidate Palmer had satisfactor ily answered each question. The Con vention then voted unanimously to sup port General Palmer, and issued an ad dress to all the railroad men in the State urging them to do the same. The Con vention represented the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, Brotherhood of Firemen, Switchmen's Union, Conduct ors' Association and Brakeinen's Asso ciation.—fN. Y. World. The Peculiar Senatorial Fight He Ins; Silently Waged In Minnesota. The liveliest political contest of the present campaign is now being fought on the quiet in Minnesota, says a St. Paul dispatch to the New York Times. At the present time thore are three men en gaged in the contest, and the prize is D. M. Sabin's seat in the United States Sen ate. Senator Sabin is a candidate to succeed himself, of course, and his ag gress-ive Republican opponent is General W. D. Washburn. Ignatius Donnelly— he of the unique political and literary record —is actively training to get in con dition to head both Sabin and Washburn in the decisive heat to be run in the State legislative halls next winter. The Senatorial campaign seems to be con ducted strictly on the still-hunt plan. The laying of the proper political wires and the building of candidates' fences began more than two years ago. Less than a year ago there were no less than six men figuring on filling the Stillwater man's shoes. Among them were C. A. Pillsbury, ex Governor John S. Pillsbuiy, R. B. Langdon, H. B. Strait and ex-Gov ernor Hubbard. But the contest has narrowed down between Washburn and Subin. Of the candidates for the legis lature already nominated by the Repub licans the Washburn men claim to have a majority, but they are not wild enough to claim that Washburn has a sure thing. Tho Sabin men are doing their work under the surface. But a leading Sabin man let drop a remark in St. Paul the other day which has set the opposition guessing. The remark was this: "If General Washburn succeeds in securing the majority of the Republican legisla tors elected this fall it will not beat Sa bin—not by a jugful." That is an inno cent little statement, seemingly; but, nevertheless, it has set the opposition hustling for facts. They claim to have found a very fleshy Senegambian in Sa bin's political fences, but they are keep ing very Bhady with the information. There are vague rumors of a deal be tween Sabin on one side and Hill, Kelly, Doran and President Cleveland on the other. This, it is given out, is a com pact by which enough Democratic legis lative votes are to be delivered to Sabin to secure his election. Sabin has no pro nounced views on the tariff, and is any thing but a partisan in politics. Mr. Cleveland has always advised with Sabin regarding appointments in Minnesota. This has strengthened Sabin with tbe Democrats, but caused the Republican leaders to lose confidence in him. The unique factor in the race is Igna tius Donnelly. His position and chances have already been outlined. The sage bases his hopes of election upon a dead lock between Sabin and Washburn and the election of a sufficient number favor able to his candidacy to give him the balance of power. WHAT THE MONEY GAUGE SAYS. If el lor* Delncllned to Risk. rUoneylon Harrison or Hewitt. Colonel Swords, the walking betting delegate and Sergeant-at-Anns at the National Republican Committee, was at the Hoffman House last evening. He was seated at a cafe with ex-Senator Al bert W. Daggett, tbe wicked circular part ner of "Fry-the-Fat Foster." Colonel Swords said he had no $10,000 engagement to keep last night. He was, however, loquacious, and he blurted out, "I made a $3,000 bet on Harrison about an hour ago." "Where?" asked the reportef. "At the Union League Club," he re plied. "Did a member of the Union Club bet you $3,000 that Cleveland would be elected?" * "He did." "Who was he?" "I do not care to mention his name. He is a prominent member of the Pro duce Exchange." "That's pretty good." put in Al Dag gett—"a member of the Union League Club to bet on Cleveland. I thought they had hustled all the Mugwumps out of the club. If a member of the Dag gett Harrison and Morton Club were to bet on Cleveland I should be tried for treason." A few bets of small amounts on the result of the Presidential election were made about the hotels. The rumor that John 1,. Hill, of Philadelphia, was to be at the St. James and Hoffman House with $10,000 more to bet on Harrison and Morton brought half a dozen men around ready to accept the wager. "Johnnie" Allen, "Dave" Gideon and one of the Dwyers were on hand, but Mr. Hill did not appear. In the betting on local candidates Mayor Hewitt seemed to be without a friend among the men who were laying wagers on tho result of the Mayorality contest. Only one man was bold enough to back him and he covered his identity by placing his wager through another man. It was for $500 and was instantly accepted by W. F. Croft, the Harlem contractor. The unknown said he was willing to bet $1,000 additional but he left no forfeit. Matthew Baird, John B. Devlin and several other well-known contractors were in the Hoffman House early in the evening ready to put up from $10,000 to $20,000 on Grant. They made a search for Mr. Hewitt's solitary supporter but failed to find him. Theodore H. Hamilton made two dis-' tioct efforts to bet either $1,000 or $2,500 on Sheriff Grant, but the Hewitt adher ents refused to talk business. H. D. Sarsfield, of the Thirteenth Assembly District, went so far as to offer $100 even that Coogan would poll a larger vote than Hewitt, and even this remarkable offer found no takers. Ex-Register John Reilly offered to l>et $5000 that Grant would receive more votes than Hewitt and Coogan combined. This offer was made publicly and there was no takers. Ben Wood has offered to wager $10,000 that Colonel William L. Brown will win his bet of $20,000 against $12,000 on Cleveland. Mr. Wood is still waiting for some one to accept. The market last night was as follows: On the general result of the National election, even money; on New York State, 10 to 9 in favor of Cleveland; on the doubtful States, provided all were taken, even money. Un the local elec tion, 10 to 7 on Grant as against Hewitt, 3 to 1 on Grant against Erhardt. Later in the evening Dr. W. C. McFar land, of No. 54 West Twenty-sixth street, bet $75 against $100 with Mr. Jere Pang born that Hill would poll more votes in tho State of New York than Cleveland. Some bantering followed the making of the wager and Dr. McKarland offered $1000 to $600 on Hill's election. Mr. Pangborn did not accept.—[New York World. THE PULLMAN COMPANY. Its Annual Report—ln Flourishing Condition. The following annual report of the Pullman Car Company, was received at District Superintendent Klwood's office, in this city, yesterday : "We have built and placed in service during the year 147 sleeping, parlor and dining cars, costing $10,382.43 each, or an aggregate of $2,408, --217.21. There are now under con struction ninety cars, the estimated cost being about $17,000 each, or an ag gregate of $1,530,000.00. These cars, with the 85 purchased of the Baltimore and Ohio, and the 147 built during the year, will make a total of 322, an addi tion of about 25 per cent, to the total equipment in service July 31, 1887. Thero has beon expended for new dwellings and additions to shops and plant at Pullman during the fiscal year, $253,866.63. The value of the manufactured product of all the car works of the company for the year was $8,704,040.08; other in dustries at Pullman belonging to the company, including rentals, $2,118, --276.10: making a grand total of $10,823, --225.18. The average number of names on the pay-rolls at Pullman for the year was 4,593; the wages paid $2,778,428.56; making an average for each person em ployed of JOO4. This is believed to be a much higher average per person than exists in 'any other community where similar work is performed. The total number of persons in the employ of the company in its manufactur ing and operating departments is 10,000; wages paid during the year $5,516,201.55. The number of cars employed in the service is 1,420; the number of passen gers carried during the year, 3,482,906; the mileage of cars, 120,801,807. The total mileage of railway covered by contracts for the operation of the cars of this company is 106,131.

All diseases of the respiratory organs treated by trie most approved medical inhalations, combined with proper constitutional remedies for the liver, stomach, blood, etc. We are also now using the Compound Oxygen treatment which has such a world-wide reputation in lung and nervous affections. Probably no system of practice ever adopted has been so universally successful as that introduced hy Dr. Williams tor tbo cure of catarrh, throat diseases, bronchitis, asthma and consumption. CATARRH. ihe term catarrh is applied to a peculiar dis order of the nostrils and adjacent parts, which prevails to an alarming extent aud is produc tive of very serious consequences. The most prominent ana characteristic fea tures is a morbid discharge from tho head, varying m its nature at different times. In some there is an almost constant flow of clear, acrid fluid, but oftener an offensive, purulent or muco purulent, greenish yellow matter is secreted, which accumulates in the nostrils or drops into the throat, necessitat ing its frcquont removal by blowing the nose or expectoration, and ofteu by both processes Sometimes patients feel as though their whole head was in a state of rottenness, so great Is the amount of matter discharged aud so fetid is its odor. The patient is greatly annoyed by the constant dropping into the throat of the morbid matter from the head, and es a recum bent position naturally favors the flow down ward, his rest is frequently disturbed from this cause. Many, sufferers arc obliged to lie with '.he head very much elevated in order to sleep with some degree of comfort. In others a tough, viscid and offensive phlegm collects behiud and abovo the soft pal ate.in the passage between the thtoat aud head, adhering to the parts with giuish tenacity. Its lodgment embarrasses respiration and creates a sensation of irritation and uneasiness in tho effected locality, which gives rise to a constant aud almost irresistible desire to relieve tho dis comfort by drawiug the mucous into the throat to as to eject it by the month. This practice popularly known as "hawking," is character istic of catarrh, and proves as embarrassing to the one affected as it is disagreeable to those around him. Again, the offensive matter hardens and de posits itself on the membrane in the shape of dry, hard concretions, which aro discharged by way of the nostrils or throat in lumps or fragments of a deep green tint. In some cases these incrustations accumulate to such an ex tcntas to form a regular plug in the noße,which obstructs breathing and producos Berious dis comfort. So firmly do these incrustations ad here to the point of attachment that their re moval usually requires the most violent efforts; not unfrequently they have to be torn from the membrane, Occasionally a sqlid cast of nota ble size is expelled, on which there are gener ally traces of blood, but In some coses the cast presents a tubular appearance, being of exact shape of the nasal cavity. This condition Is indicative of ulceration, which, in time, may destroy the bony structure of the nose and pro duce a subsequent flattening of that organ. Cases aie occa-ionally met with in which a thick, viscid, slimy secretion coots the mem brane of tho nasal cavities and then putrifles, giving rise to a stench which is really over powering, and sufficiently fetid to poison the atmosphere of a whole room; and there are others in which all the secretions of the mem brane are suspended, causing an unpleasant feeling of dryness, heat and fevcrishness in the head and nose—a condition popularly known as "Dry Catarrh." Tho disease speedily extends to the air cav ities of the bones of the forehead and faco, giv ing rise to a distressing sensation of heavy weight or compression over the forehead, es pecially in the region above aud between the cyes.aud to a feeling of fullness, heat, irritation, soreness or pain In the nostrils near the root of the nose, as well as In the upper part of the throat, abovo and behind the soft palate. Sometimes there Is pain obstinately fixed in some particular part, as in the temple, on the top of the head, at the back of tbe neck, or be hind the orbits, and, occasionally, pain mani fests itself in the face of so severe a character that it is frequently mistaken for neuralgia. The breath is always tainted and at times assumes an exceedingly fetid and sickening odor. In some cases It becomes so revolting ly offensive as to render tbe sufferer an ob ject of disgust to himself as well as to others. The nasal membrane is thickened and con gested, causing the nose to be stopped up, sometimes on one side, sometimes on the other, and often on both, giving rise to a disa greeable, stuffy sensition in the head, and oc casionly violent and prolonged paroxysms of sneezing. Tho veice is weak, indistinct and husky, or ol a nasal character, displaying a sort of suit ing quality. Oftentimes there is a continuous hoarseness and discordance. There is also a sense of irritation in the throat, and frequent attempts to clear the parts of phlegm, produc ing the sound "hem' 1 more or less forcibly. In some cases patients complain of an uncom fortable feeling of fullness, or a choky sensa tion In the throat, and in others ol a distress ing and almost constant dryness, for the tem porary relief of which they have to swallow frequently. Others, again, speak of a constant bad or nauseous taste in the mouth or throat. The stomach generally suffers more or less and beromes weak and irritable; the appetite is capricious and nearly always bad in the morning. The patient is languid, nnable to perform mental or physical libor with the usual facility, is nervous, dfpreFsed in spirits, at times fearful, timid, agitated and inclined to drowsiness aud sleep, the memory weakened and permanent impairment seriously threat ened, The mucous inembraue soon bccoires mor bidly sensitive to unfavorshle influences, aud In spite of the utmost care becomes affected from the sliehlest causes, so that a breath of wiad upon the 'inings of the nose or throat be comes productive of a cold, and gives rise to serious disturbances of the respiratory organs. Thus the patient is subject to frequent and re peated colds, each attack aggravating tbe disease by giving it a new impulse aud involv ing a larger extent of surface than its prede cessor. Iv this manner the difficulty spreads from organ to oigou, invading the throat larynx, trachea and bronchial tubes, until, encroaching further and further, it reaches the finer ramifications of the bronchi, when but a Blight Impulse is required to send it to the luugs. Catarrh may, and often does, affect other organs in tho body, especially those con taining a mucous mombraue, 6ttch as the stom ach, bowels, kidneys, etc. Dy tbo employment of proper inhalation in the form of medicated vapor (not steam or spray) we are able to produce immediate and direct action upon the diseased surfaces In the larynx and nasal passages, for air will find its way into the most remote and intricate cavities, where it is utterly impossible to make fluid applications. By these means every case can be cured. Persons desiring treatment by this system of practice cau use the remedies at home as well as at our oflive, and which will cause no inconvcnlcnco or hindrance of business what ever. I have seen so many of these cases cured that I do not consider any case hopeless, un less both lungs are seriously involved. The inhalations aid us in dissolving the mucous and In contracting and healing the cavities, which nothing else can do with the same suc cess. The very best references from those al ready cured.
