The comparison made by our
morning contemporary of the scenes
of last Thursday at:d Friday with
the Republican rallied before the
election of last fall is so "far
fetched" as to be ridiculous. The
criticisms of the Sun were ou the use
of money and the degradation exhibited
by the bum clement in loafing
about the corners to prey upon
the candidates. The scenes which
stirred the soul of our contemporary
were simply rejoicing and enthusiasm.
Money and corruption were as
conspicuous for their absence on
those occasions as for their presence
on this. But then the "blarsted

Tiik importers are endeavoring to
c.cate a scare by creating the impression
that there is a prospect of
Kugland's levying a retaliatory tariff
on account of the Dingley bill. No
well informed man would be imposed
ou for an instant by such a sil'y
story. England absolutely, must
have free trade in order to dispose of
her wares. She must have free trade
in order to supply food products
needed by her dense population.
The talk about ictaliatory tariff is
generally mere buncombe promulgated
for the purpose of iuflueiiciug
elections or legislation. They seldom
materialize. England's wage
scale is already at the bottom. She
has no desire to raise it. Her laboring
man is usually devoid of
ons to better his condition. Born
n laborer he expects to die a laborer,
uulike tho American laborer, who is
moved by u laudiblc ambition to
butler bis condition and that of his
family. So there is uo disposition to

on account f thu density of the
population and their environment.
A Kansas man believes the great
trouble with the farmer is that "loo

There is not a particle of doubt that
he has struck the key note to the situation.
That farmer who pursues

devote to any other business in which
ho should bo successful, finds no

Capt. Caiii. J. II. Fi.inkt is a

captain, who is constructing a small
vessel which he c'aims will make
fifiy miles an hour and cross the

improvements are iu the form of the
vessel and iu the screw. The form
of the vessel is something like the
whaleback and it is designed to run
practically under the water. The
trial trip is expected to be made next
week and if successful the captain

tinouut of revenue, an I it is a very
largo amount too, is necessary to"

are just three ways in which this can

occupations and products of the
American people, called internal rev
ctmc taxes to distinguish tliem, ami
customs or tariff taxes. The policy
ot the cover n men t from its founda
tion has been to avoid taxation b
direct method as burdensome and
offensive to the people, and only in
one or two instances have such taxes
been levied, when the government
was in great straits for money.
Internal taxes of the character
now levied are but a degree
icinoved from direct taxes in this regard,
and the bulk of our national
tax has always and very properly
been collected from imports which
.seek the privilege of our markets .

a tax on foreign ina.K' goods

to levy those duties as to favor
imports which do not compete with
the products or the possible pro-
duets, of this country, and thus iu a
meaiure deprive our own labor of its
opportunity for employment, nml to
tax more heavily those aiticles which
are produced by our labor. It is
manifest that every dollar's worth of
such furcigu products sold in this
country displaces a dollar's worth of
that produced by our own labor. If
then the tariffs levied be so adjusted
as to produce the required revenue
and at the same time reduce the for

ducts, then we have the protection
ist's idea of a protective tariff. Only
this and nothing more.

The Democratic ticket chosen Saturday
coutaius the names of some
good men. As a whole, however, is
weak ami will be soft pickinjr for the
Republicans iu November. Saturday's
primary demonstrated that the
day of the ward bummer and s'rect
corner politician is past. He has
lost bis vocation in Paducah. The
time has passed when a Democratic
nomination means election, whether
in the state of Kentucky, city of Paducah
or even iu McCracken county,
which was at one time considered be
yond redemption. Watcli the elec
tion aud see this statement verified.
(From Our tlcittilar Corrrgpoiuleut.)
Washington, April 2. Chairmau
Dingley is receiving numerous well-
deserved congratulations on his
successfully carried out the tariff
program to the letter, and the only
regret is that there isn't u Republican
majority in the Senate to hurry
through the good work so well begun
iu the House. There isn't the slightest
doubt about the Senate passing
the bill, but there is about the nature
of the amendments it may be necessary
to adopt to get it through that
body. Even admitting that the amendment
adopted by the House, making
the duties prescribed iu the Dingley
bill go into effect April 1, is of
doubtful constitu tonality, it is still a
g od thing, and will go far towards
accomplishing its object preventing
our markets being overloaded with
foreign goods while the bill is being
considered in the Senate. The doubt
will be sulllcient to scaic off the speculatively
inclined importers. Theie
are reasons to believe that the Seu-ate
may surprise the couutry by disposing
of the tariff bill in a much
shorter time than has been predicted.
A leading Democratic Senator told a
personal friend that he saw uo reason
why thu bill could not lie disposed of
within sixty days, and would not be
surprised lo see it done iu much less

Senator Pritchard, who Is chairman
of the Civil Service Committee,
which has been directed by the Senate
lo investigate the administration
of the civil service law, says on the
subje't: "I shall insist upon an

who opposes the Introduction of nefarious

interested, and if the men who
act as agents or middlemen between
the inventors and the government
the patent attorneys anil solicitors
are not honornble euiiough to conduct
their business on a plane above
that of a gtiinbl ng lottery, they
should be compelled by law to do so.

Republicans, including Gen.

assignments will be made by a committee
