FITZCIBBONS, Editor and Business Manager MlKt U I I 3 son i o n saaa la be Senator Fairbanks was always a friend, of the laboring man. In a speech at' Kansas City some two years ajro the senator said:" We want do slave labor. Two million men, with their blood, wiped away slavery forever. We want no labor, either white or black, in a virtual state of serfdom. Labor must be free, with nil the prerogatives which pertain to freedom." . . o On the 13th of last July, William Vawin-s liryan, who is to speak at OambrMge City soon, published his views on the Democratic platform in 'The Commoner." This is the wa? he put it: I shall not misrepresent the sit luition, or appeal for votes for the ticket upon false grounds. A Demo era tic victory will mean very little, if an v. prosrress on economic ques lions so long as the party is under the control of the Wall street element The labor plank as prepar ed bv J mitre Parker's friends on the subcommittee was a straddling, mean in. .h. idnnk. The nomi nation of Judge Parker virtually mil lifies the anti-trust plank." The war between Japan and Rus-.-nis merrilv on. Skirmish after skirmish is had, the results published all over the world and still the war cues on. Day after day hundreds of human lives are sacrificed and still the war goes on. The great powers of the earth stand back as if awed lu the awful conflict and. still the ' war goes on. Sunday after Sunday .millions of people assemble in the churches scattered all over the world and prav for peace between nations and still the war goes on. There are no signs of a break in the present inactivity. Port Arthur is the piv otal battle ground. The two armies lie between Liao Yang and Mukden, watching each other and reinforcing. The Japanese are preparing for a turn in affairs, and are fixing up strong positions. .The most impor tant war news of the week, though not vouched for, has come from To kio. It is to the effect that the Rus sian fleet in the harbor has been sev erely damaged by the Japanese land batteries. A possible confirmation of the story may be found in Kamimu ra's blockade of Yladevostok. o JUDGE PARKER'S RECIPROCITY Judge Parker, in his letter of ac ceptance, tries to keep in harmony with his platform, and at the same time cite Republican authority for his position. It is a sort of two horse bare-back riding at which David B. Hill is an adept, and it must be sur mised that the Democratic candidate for president is trying to follow the teachings of his preceptor, but he makes but a sad figure in the effort. Judge Parker is complex in his dis cussion of the tariff, but his utter ances on reciprocity " are confusion worse confounded, especially' when he $lrags in the names of McKinley, 'Blaine aha"' Dingley as authority for -Jiis alleged views on that) subject. , t Does Judge Parker know that the Democrats repealed" the 'McKinley .lariff act and at the same time de nounced all the reciprocity treaties negotiated under it by President Har rison? Does he know that the Demo crats in congress opposed and ridi culed the reciprocity section in the Dingley tariff law? Does he konw that Nelson Dingley was regarded by Democrats as the, high priest of pro tection bnljeven-yearaf flgoandthat livedo ? Does he know what his par ty really means by reciprocity? If Judge Parker will turn back on ly two years and read the Democratic textbook for 1902, edited by Senator Carmack, lie will find the Democratic definition of reciprocity. That Dem ocratic textbook declared that "reci procity looks like free trade, but tastes like protection," that "in practice reciprocity is worse than protection," that "reciprocity is based upon the same, false theories as is protection, and like protection, is a sham and a humbug." lie will also find there the Democratic tariff position in one short sentence, where the textbook declares that "Free trade would open our markets to ben efit our own country." Instead of garbling McKinley 's last public speech and using the garbled extract as an illustration of his own position regarding reciprocity Judge Parker should have gone direct to the foun tain of Democratic tariff inspiration and learned just why his party de sires reciprocity with China. His party wants to open our markets to competitors from other countries, just as they have ever desired from the beginning of this government. Their doctrine is free trade now as it was when the Sputh rebelled and set up the Confederacy, placing in their constitution a prohibition against their congress ever enacting a protective tariff law. It is the same as in 1892 when the party declared protection .-unconstitutional, but with the memory of the disasters which followed the Democratic tariff legis lation then they are trying to bring in free trade in the form of reciproc ity in competing products.. It may be "a harmless form of dis cussion for Judge Parker to tell' the people that he favors reciprocity just as did Blaine, McKinley and Dingley, but the people who believe in protec tion to American labor and American enterprises should see to it that there is a Republican congress to legislate in favor of reciprocity sue has was favored by Blaine, McKinley and Dingley, for a Democratic congress will surely follow the old Democratic doctrine and legislate in favor of free trade or whatever name they may give to their legislation. - : Logic of Recent Cure M..H in-l-M-I-H-M-H-I- I I 1 1 I ! I V 1.1 M H H-I- The World's Greatest Newspaper Last Sunday week the Palladium published exclusively the account of the miraculous restoration to health of Sister Clementine (Nellie Luken). Since that time the article has been copied all over the state. The Trib une Gazette of Saturday had the following editorial upon the subject: The case of Miss Nellie Luken pre sents an interesting study. She is the young woman of Richmond Ind.,who claims to have been a confirmed in valid, pronounced incuruable by emi nent physicians, and cured by ans wer to prayer. The inexorable logic of the event may be postulated thus: Her statements are true, or they are not true. They cannot be both. If her premises are right, and her rea soning correct, her conclusion is right That is to say, if she was an incura ble, and if she used only prayer as the means, and was restored to health in one hour, a genuine miracle was performed. It was as much a mira cle as the rising of Jairus' daughter. Indeed, one newspaper pronounced the occurrence as "miraculous as any rf the occurrences recorded in the New Testament." If her premises are not right, and her reasoning is correct, her conclu sion is bound to be false. That is to say, if her allegation that a diagno sis showed every organ impaired is not true, then no miracle was per formed. The controversy resolves itself into a question of a priori facts. Was ev ery organ impaired? Did she have, as alleged, tuberculosis of the spine? Was she incurable by the regular process of nature? Who shall pre sume to be so knowledeous as to say yes to this last question? We leave the discussion to the ma terialistic physicians and the spiritu al religionists. Doubtless some of the former will be quick to admit that the diagnosis was incorrect, while some" of the latter Avill assert the diagnosis was correct and the miracle occurred. Both cannot be true. The father of the once afflicted sister is a physician and has exam ined the condition of his daughter time and again, and no one knew it better than he. The fact that the cure took place, and in a short space of time, through the efficacy of pray er is no more strange than Avas the raisins of Jairus' daughter. TilBG hicago mm.
