There is no one se peer ns te de the
Democratic Heuse of Representatives
reverence any mere. Even their own
fellow-partisans heap condemnation and
contumely en them. Here is what the
Democratic New Orleans Times-Democrat
bays of them:
3Ir. Helmyn is incapable of npprecia
ting the difference between true and false
economy. There is no true economy in
a man's se cutting down Ids household
expense as te starve his family. Simi
larly, the Congressional economy that
proposed te step work en the Navy we
had begun te build and which we need,
which cut down the most trifling ap
proprjatien for West Point and deemed
the students there te near-sightedness and
weak eyes, because it would net provide
sufficient light for them, that would mar
the success of the Chicago Exposition
after the United States had boasted of it
te the world is false and antagonistic te
the popular desire
The Democratic platform saya: "We
denounce Republican Protection a a
fraud." There is no way in which that
can be misconstrued or distorted. It is
a threat te the whole existing economic
condition of the Natien. Such being
the case Gbever Cleveland kuews that
no man who stands en it can hope te be
elected President of the United States.
Se he seeks te " modify" it. The reason
is exactly the same that led the Demo
cratic Heuse of Representatives from
passing the free silver bill, and a free
lumber bill, and a free iron ere bill,
namely, a truckling cowardice about
declaring a policy te the people. It is
accompanied by exactly the same reser
vation as that made by the Heuse
"Wait until after election." If the
Democrats are successful they propose te
play smash "after the election."
Abe you a carpenter? In England a
cartfenter earns en an average $1 02 per
day. A carpenter 1u the United States
averages $2 per day, "The Tariff
tfees net protect yetti and you have no
interest In It" Are you se sure about
that? Hew many months were you
employed In helping te build that big
factory? It would never have gene up
were It net for Protection, and you would
have been he many months out of a
" job." Perhaps you are new at work
en the houses around it in which the
empleyes will live. These houses would
net be built if there were no Tariff.
When the Free-tradQ crank tells you
that you are net Protected and have no
Interest in the Tariff tell him he does
net knew what he is talking about.
Vete this fall for a " steady job" during
the next four years.
Abraham Lincoln delivered his first
political speech in 1832 when a candl
. date for the Legislature of Illinois. It
wm as follews: "Gentlemen, Fellow
citizens: I presume you knew who I
aM I am humble Abraham Lincoln.
I have been solicited by many friends
te boeMBO a eandldate for the Legtsla-
ture. My politics can be briefly stated.
I am in favor of the internal improve
ment system and a high Protectlve
Tariff. These are my sentiments and
political principles. If .elected, I shall
be thankful; if net it will be all the
same." The same issue confronts the
American people te-day which con
fronted Lincoln in 18H2. Is net the
example of "humble Abraham Lincoln,"
patriot and martyr, a better one te
fellow than that of Calhoun, the slave
driver, or Jeffersen Dwis, the
One of the first problems says The
Xew Yerk Pi ess that the Democratic
Campaign Committee will have te
wrestle with Is the
papers which sup
Democratic Organs pert the Free-trade
candidate. A com
mittee of Typo
graphical Union Xe. 0 has been ap
pointed te bring the attention of the
National Democratic Cemmittee te the
fact that the non-Union newspapers in
New Yerk City are Democratic. They
Include the powerful Stoats Sieitung,
Evening Pest and Brooklyn Eagle.
The leading Democratic newspaper of
Pennsylvania, The Philadelphia Recerd,
in which Governer Pattison Is a small
stockholder, and whose proprietor is also
an intimate political associate and
personal friend of Mr. Harrity, the
new Democratic Natieual Chairman, is
also opposed" te organized labor. The
Buffalo Courier and The, Louisville
Courier-Jeunnal, owned by Mr. Watter
son, the Free-trade leader and the
famous writer of Democratic platforms
are among the newspapers which
organized labor will endeavor te bring
into the Union by political pressure.
The following extract from President
Cleveland's net Tariff for revenue only
message of 1887 reads like very primitive
political economy in this day:
Thee TaritTJ-ltuvs in
their logical and plain
Tauik effect laise the price te
and Piuce consumers of all articles
imported and subject te
duty by precisely the
sum paid for such duties. Thus the
amount of the duty mea&utes the tax
paid by these who purchase for use these
imported articles Many of these things,
however, are raised or manufactured in
our own ceuntrv. and the duties new
levied upon foreign goods and predcuts
are called Protection te these home
manufactures, because they render it
possible for these of our people who are
manufacturers te make these taxed ar
ticles and sell them ler a price equal te
that demanded for the imported goods
that have paid customs duty Se it
happens that while comparatively few
use the imported articles, millions of our
people who never used and never saw
any of the foreign products, purchase
and ue things of the same kind made in
this country, and nay therefore nearly or
quite the same enhanced price which the
duty adds te the imported articles
After all the threshiug ever and
discussion of the Tariff question before
the people since that message was sent
in the public understand thoroughly
two principles of political economy
which are wholly ignored by President
Cleveland or, mere properly speaking,
are contradicted. The first is that
where there is home competition in an
article the foreign produces' of that
article pays a whole or a part of the
Tariff in order te enter the market.
The second is that home competition in
the manufacture of nearly all Protected
articles has brought the price down
in many cases te a price lower than the
duty upon it alone, and in some cae te
as low u peiut as the foreign manu
factured article. There U an endless
series of examples in tills in nearly
every manufactured article en which a
Tariff is levied. Every newspaper
reader can recall examples from his
President Cleveland never reiterated
ami never defended this remarkable
btatement which appeared in his Tariff
message. Presumably lie grew ashamed

The very latest invention in the way
of mogazlne small arms, and one net

In test by the Italian authorities. The
rifle is four feet long and of the smallest
caliber yet attempted, .250-inch. The
speed of the bullet is 2,800 foet-ecoonds,
