Statements made Iy I)emocratic
stump1) orators and editors relative to
the existing Iries of commodities
must be taken with some allowance:
Two years a:o tllese smlne teachers
were telling the wage worker how
shamefully they were being robbed
by their employers-hiow the tariff
was maki.g them poorer while it was
adding to the wealth of their oppress
ors, and all that sort of thing.. Now
they are taking most rosy and enucmr
aging views of the situation. They
flatter themselves that the McKinley
law has been repealed and that as a
consequence "everything is lovely and
the goose hangs high." One of these
free-trade editors affirms that now,
under the Wilson tariff, the cost of
living has been reduced from 10 to 25
per cent as compared with the Mc
Kinley prices of a year ago. "One
dollar now," says this authority,
"will buy of the necessaries of life
abl:out as much as $1 10 or $1 25 would
buy a year ago," and it is added:
"These are the result of tariff re
It may be conceded that the cost of
living has been reduced since the
work of tinkering the tariff commenc
ed. Everything else has gone down
with such 'fearful velocity that it
would be strange if food and clothing
would not also decline. But the
cheapening process went on quite ac
tively under a protective tariff. Tlhe
same quantity of fourteen articles of
daily household consumlption which
cost (;2 in 18~i can now he purchas
ed fr 830. Deuring the last quarter
of a ceitury, under ghlli protection,
the cost of staple food products has
been reduced so that $1 now is worth
in purchasing power $2 as compared
with 1i86i. It is not claimed that
tihe cheapening process has been
wholly due t.o protection, but it was
an important factor in producing tihe
There is one point which the dem
ocratic vote seeker carefully shlns in
cennection with timhe prices of com
miodities-thait is. the great reduc
tion in wages and the scarcity of
work. No democratic editor hasI
ever yet attempted to figure out how
much better off the wage worker is
now than he was in 1892, when work
was abundant and wages were at
their highest. They have been hold
ing up for the inspection of the toil
ing, masses the most superb bargains
ever offered in clothing, blankets,
etc., but they say nothing about the
workman's pocketbook. What dothm
It profit the wage. worker that he can
buly household supplies at from 10 to
25 per cent less than a year ago, when
his wages have fallen 25, 30 or 40 per
cent and lihe cannot find constant em
ploymeut at even starvation wages?
The pledge of the democratic party
in 1892 was to better the condition of
the working classes. Has this prom
ise been redeemed? Let the working
men answer at the ballot box.
The indications are that the cele
bration of Thanksgiving this year is I
going to be a piece of tRepublcan S

I hope and trust that in the coming
election they will send us such true
and tried friends of silver as Charley
ilartman of Montana.-Lafe Pence C
(l'op.) of Colorado.
It seems pertinent to say that at
present any definition of dlemocracy
is, like the iouse tariff bill con- 0
structed on the democratic national d
Ilat form, subject to about (i00 amend- t
ments. .
The Colorado miners are begi nnin,

Those who know Lew William:
and J.1i I'arris know there is no
comparison in the capacity of thi

county treasurer for the next two

Henry L. Mleyers, the democratic
nominee for county attorney, is like

to give hiill an office before he has

With the closing of mills and fac

Why theorize when the air resounds
with facts;? A McKinler bill clouds

A vote for (Grant, Pope and Blond
is a vote for two United States sena
sors who may possibly vote for the
free coinage of silver, but who will
vote forl such an unlimited issue of1'
irredeemable paper monev as will ul
timately retire all gold and silver as
curreincy alnd close up every mine in
the west.
A vote for Johnllllson, Faulds and
Chambers is a vote for two United
States senators who lmay possibly
vote for the free coinage of silver,
but who will yet endorse Cleveland's
financial and tariff policy, and who
will vote for free wool, free lead, free
lumber and a protective tariff on sugar
and peanuts.
Reciprocity versus free trade. Re
ciprocity means more products and
manufactures at home and more sales
abroad. Free trade means less pro
ducts and manufactures at home and
more i)urchases abroad. One wayr
lies thrift and prosperity ; the other
way hard times and distress.-Senu
tor Eugene Iale of Maine.
A vote for Cooper, Baggs and Con
ner is a vote for two United States
senators who will positively vote for
tihe free coinage of silver, and who
also will vote to protect the wool and
lead interests of Montana and the
general business interests of the
county, which have )een badly hurt.
by the enactment of the democratic
tariff bill.
We hereby call attention to the
fact that from th.e day of the passage
iof the McKinley act to the day of its
repeal, the price of wool continually
decreased; and that from the day of
that repeal to the present the price
Ilas continually advanced.--Montana
Democratic Platform.
With materials CHEAPENED by
their freedom from tariff charges, the;
cost of their products must be cor
'rspond i ugly cheapened.-Cleveland's
letter to Catchings
Ilob Smith says the populist mem
bers of the state legislature will vote
with the democrats in electing United
States senators. Therefore, all good
citizens who do not want free wool,
free lumber, free lead and taxed
sugar; wvho do not "cordially en
dorse" the administration of Grover
Cleveland will vote for Cooper, B3aggs
and Conner, and help send lprotection
senators to Washington.
Two years ago Judge Dixon and
Bob Smith were stumllping the state
for democracy and tellimng the work
ingoien that the M3cKinley bill raised
the price of their dinner pails about
3 cents. The workingimen of the
United States voted for Cleveland
and the free trade party, and now
they have saved the entire cost of the
dinner pail, because they have no
work to carry their dinner to and
nothing to put in the pail.

is better known tllan . W. Lancas

of ravalli county, on the 6th day of

it emphatically-- No And MIr. Lan

Since the populist nominee has
withldrawn, of course the populist
papers rush to the support of the
democratic candidate for treasurer.
The Valley Advertiser, in booming
Mr. Landram, says he has run his
oflice without a deputy, and would do
s- again. if the treasurer has not
had a deputy it is not because he has
not asked for one. In fact he asked
the commissioners for a deputy for
three months last year and they al
lowed him one for one month. Arm
strong, of the Advertiser, is as good
a democratic as ever at heart, and
desires the success of democracy.
Is it possible that the people of
this country can again be deceived
by bokl defiant lying? Evidently the
democrats think so. Senator lill, in
a speech on Wednesday night, said:
"Since the passage of the present bill,
in n hich wool has been placed on the
free list, wool has not declined in
price, but has maintained an upward
ten e.ency." That is a lie out of whole
cloth. Ohio XX, the standard grade,
has sold 18 per cent less this month
than it brought at the time the bill
became a law, and other grades have
gone down in proportion. In Eng
land wool llas gone up 2_. per cent on
some grades. The bill helps the for
eign wool grower and hurts those of
the United States. lill is the same
dishonest political trickster that he
was two years ago when lie planned
the theft of the state senate for
which Maynard was punished last
