The Farmer’s Prosperity. For the American farmer to con tinue his prosperity by continuing the market at home, where he must sell his products if they are to be sold at his advantage, the American factories, which take 80 per cent of their raw material from the Ameri can farm, must be kept open and tl.e 0,000,000 operatives in those factor ies whom the American farmer feeds mast be kept employed So for all the American people to con tinue their prosperity the American home market must be maintained. It can be maintained, and always will be, when we keep our own wage earners at work, giving them tbe money with which to buy American articles of commerce in the home market. It cannot be maintained if this country takes tbe product of foreign wage earners, the tariff bar rier being leveled, in place of that of oar own wage earners, who mast quit their employment when the cheaper made output of tbe foreign ers may come here to undersell tbe American made output of our own mills and factories and shops. The American people will deter mine this choice for themselves when they vote as between tbe iepul lican party of Protection, with Mr. Roose velt its candidate for the president, and the democratic party, with Judge Parker or any other man it may nominate. —New York “Presa.” Facts ass* Coal For the past six months it has been absolutely impossi ble to get Canon City coal, owing to the strike situation.
