A. B. HUMPHREY. Secretary.
A bilance of trade iu our favor
means a bnlauct of profit- in tlie pock
ets of our people.
It means that we
are creditors instead
B vlance of debtors, that for-
of Tr ide. eign Nations e e us
money or goods in
stead of our country
being in debt te foreign XatieiH.
Free-trade "prqfessers" pretend te
sneer at a balance of trade and say it
represents no wealth.
Yet these very Free-trade "professors"
would far rather sell their text-books te
English students and get back geed
British geld in return than ine up their
salaries in buying English books with
out selling anything of their own.
A balance of trade is an index of a
country's business, of its purchases and
sales, of its profits or losses.
If it be profitable for an individual te
sell mere than he buys and thus have a
balance of money virtually a private
balance of trade iu his favor, why is it
net just as profitable for a Natien?
A balance of trade may be paid in
money, or in goods and services. Either
mode of payment inures te the profit of
the country in whose favor the balance
If the payment be in goods or servi
ces, then the debtor Natien must bestir
itself te send these geed", whether of its
own or of foreign production, or per
form these services. As a consequence,
' we get mere goods for less money than
we would get were there no favorable
The beneficial effect of a payment in
cash need net be explained. .Meney, it
is true, is net consumable, it cannot be
eaten or worn, but it has a far mere
important function. Meney is the life
of trade. Where money Is plenty busi
ness is active and enterprise awake.
Where money is "tight" industry stag
nates. Se our country should welceme a
favorable balance of trade, and it should
welcome the American policy of Pro
tection, the only policy that has given
us a favorable balance In the past or will
give it in the future.
The tendency of the Democrats te go
se the people with false premises is
thewn in the decisions te delay the
passage of the free lumber and free iron
ere bill until after election, because of
the danger their passage would cause
the party iu North Carolina, Alabama
and Tennessee. The same disposition is
shown en the subject of free silver.
Their plank is u straddle, their candidate
a "geld bug," who would veto even a
moderate measure for the use of silver
as curreucy, and yet their party in
Congress Is only waiting "until after
election" te pa.s u wide-open free coinage
nre. They hope by this course, te
ilently grain the confidence of
mm of all beliefs. Instead of that they
W kM the eoeMeoee of all.
An instructive commentary en the
constantly reiterated assertion of the
Free-trader that the Tariff is a tax, the
whele amount of
which is paid by
Who Pays the consumer, is
the Duty? furnished by a
letter written te
The Londen Pall
Mall Gazette by DWID Evans, agent for
the great English manufacturing concern
known as the Norwich Crape Company.
Speaking of the increase in the duty en
their product made by the new French
Tariff, .Mr. Evans says:
We sell crapes for the Norwich Crape
Company. Te maiutnin the returns of
the business in France the directors of
that company instruct us te sell ut or
nearly at the pi ices at which the goods
were sold before the duty of about 0 per
per cent was put upon tliein. luey
wisely de this, as they (the Norwich
Company ditecters) say if wc once lese
our position it will cost us 10 per cent, te
displace our opponents, as Lyens manu
facturers of Norwich crapes are within a
little of English tnakcis. The Norwich
makers simply j:lve 4 per cent, or se et
their profits te the French Government,
and se pay 1 per cent, en about jCUO.OOO
toward the taes in France. Yeu may
say why de it? Tiy te keep the
machinery geini; without doing it'
English consumption is insufficient
This statement of the case is exactly
true. English factories and machinery
cannot afford te remain idle, and if
foreign Nations cheese te raise their
Tariffs, British manufacturers simply
relinquish part of their profits in order
te continue production and retain con
trol of the market.
The Democratic cry of "retrenchment
and reform" is disclosed te the people as
a humbug. It was known te be a
humbug when the Democratic leaders
took it up. They knew that the only
place where retrenchment was possible
was in the pension appropriation, nnd
they also knew that no reduction there
was possible while there was a Re
publican President and Senate. The
measure for reducing pensions has net
been framed and will net be until all
departments of the Government are
uuder Democratic control. Then it will
come along with free silver coinage

Glebe Iemecrat.Tlw Republican cam
paign managers are getting things in
geed shape for an active and successful
canvas. Their work in this direction
will be lightened by the blunders of the
Democratic Heuse of Representatives,
the absurdity and iniquity of the Deme
cratic platform and the geneial hostility
of the masses of the people te Cleveland
and the policy he represents
Xethiuy Te Arbitrate.
Jfetc Yerk Sun The Homestead stri
kers demand net only that they shall be
paid wages te be lived by themselves,
but that no ether men willing te work
for the wages they refuse shall be al
lowed te work at all, and were it net for
the presence of the military they would
beat, wound and even kill every man net
belonging te tbeii gang who attempted te
enter the mill. We should like te have
the feels e.plaln what it is, under these
circumstances, that they propose shall be
arbitrated, and hew they propose te en
force the award of the arbitrators when
it is made.
Thikty of the gills employed in the
Covington Cotten Factory struck for
higher wages. The girls went out In a
body, necessitating the temporary sus
pension of the works They have been
receiving '& 7!i n week, and asked for
ten per cent, increase. This the com
pany refused te grant, holding that they
can get all the girls they want at the pre
sent rate of wages.
TitK Democratic Kentucky Senate rose
high above partisan predjudice and re
fused, by h very decided vote, te gerry
mander the First Appellate Judicial Dis
trict, new represented en the bench by
Judge William H. Helt, a Republican,
and make it purely Democratic by a
transfer of live Republican counties,
Seme of the Senators were outspoken in
praise of Helt, said be was a geed Judge,
was elected from a Democratic District,
and they did net believe In disturbing
him by a jugglery of counties.
Tiik great lock-out at Homestead is
just one mouth old and has already cost
ever $1,000,000, besides the sacrifice of a
half score of human lives and serious in
juries te many times that number. Of
the iess in cash the military bus cost in
round figures $3'i0,000. the workmen
have lest in wages $180,000 and Carno Carne
glcs have lest and spent as much mere in
getting new workmen. The workmen at
Beaver Falls, Duqucsne and the Union
Mills in Pittsburgh have lest about 100,
000 In wageH by their sympathy strike,
and the firm is out 100,000 by the Idle
ness of these plants. Added te this will
be the county expenses for Deputy Sher
iffs and murder trials, the expense te the
city for hunting Anarchists, and te the
Natien for CongrMfllenal investigations.

Alice sat In her chair paying little nt

He left it te the jury te contemplate
Miss Mitchell's present condition. After

Ltn.VNON, O., Aug. 1. A very im
portant archaeological discovery has
been made iu Hamilton township. It
has been known for a long time that
there were evidences of Mound Build
ers' monuments en the old Stubbs
farm, but from the peculiar lo
cation and varied characters of
the fields they were net identified
until Dr. S. S. Seevllle discovered that
they weie part of u single earthwork, u
serpent mound. Prof. Putnam, of the
Peabody museum, has verified the dis dis
eevery and pronounces It one of the
greatest of American antiquities. I)r
Met, of the Penbedy Museum and
World's exposition, has surveyed It, and
with Prof. Putnam is making explora
tions in it. The snake is nineteen hun
dred feet long and ubeut ten feet
through. The famous Adams county
serpent is much smaller, and was sup
posed te be the only one in existence.
