. Seub of our Frco-trade brethem are
exalting unduly ever the fact that
wages are being increased in certain
branches of the Rhede Island cotton
spinning industry. These zealous indi
viduals forget that the increase was
planned before the election and is being
made nnder the operation of the McKin
leyIaw. With the prospect before it of a
Treasury deficiency brought about by
the unprecedented appropriations of the
Democratic Fifty-second Heuse, the
Democratic party feels about as happy
as a man who cracks a safe thinking It
filled, with geld, and who finds upon fin
ishing the job that the money isn't
there. It is partisan disappointment
' and net solicitude for public affairs that
fills the heart of the Democracy as it
surreys the Treasury.
The history of the United States for
i the past thirty-two years is the history
' of the Republican party. When the Re
publicans took charge of the National
Government a third of a century age
the country had been brought te the
verge of ruin, by the practical appllca
' tien of the Democratic dogmas of Freo Free
trade, cheap labor and cheap money.
The Federal Government had no credit
abroad and no strength at home. The
Treasury was bankrupt, the finances
disorganized, the flag dishonored, by
slavery and menaced by treason. The
country, abounding in all the resources
of wealth, was- impoverished and depen
dent upon European capitalists for its
, Besides the tremendous task of sup
pressing the mightiest rebellion of his
tory, the Republican party found itself
confronted with the necessity of recon
structing the financial and industrial
interests of the Natien. All the world
.knows hew successfully the work was
, accomplished. A material advancement
that is -without precedent In human nn
- rials, a nationality se compact that noth
ing cdn shatter it, financial credit that
.the proudest monarchy of the Old World
cannot surpass, a prestige abroad that
eetaruaads the profound respect of for
eign governments, industrial indepen
dence, a superb Navy, a sound currency,
a new system of commercial alliance
with the richest Nations of Latin Amer-
i,a tjiese are some of the results pf Ro Re
lblican rnle. Never before have the
Masses of the people been se prosperous,
Bver have the wages been se high or
th necessities of life se low In price as
tfeey are te-day.
Cleveland's administration, be it re-
?2 awwbwed, was powerless te reverse Re-
yitfettcan legislation, or te check the tide

The Congress, of the Salvation Army
new assembled In New Yerk City is, in
many respects, a unique gatherlng. It
is like none of the represontatlve relig
ious assemblages with which the metro
polis is familiar. There is a directness
of method, an intensity of purpose nnd
a fervor about the work of the Salva
tion Army which inspires profound re
spect among intelligent and unpreju
diced people. All the peculiarities of
this organization, new of world wlde
extent, are faithfully reflected in the
congress holding its session there.
Much may be said in criticism of the
military paraphernalia, the cymbals,!
Bhewy banners and street parades of the
Army. But when all is taken into con
sideration, the great fact remains that
these methods, objectionable as they may
seem te many persons, have been se ap
plied and se inspired with the sincerity
and ceurage of their advocates that a
wonderful work ier the beneflt of hu
manity has been accomplished.
In England the Army has gene into
the slums and made men and women
out of wretched outcasts that the
churches failed utterly te reach. It has
become a vast reformative agency that
has dene mere te selve the problem of
Darkest Londen than all ether agencies
combined. On the Ceutinent and in
many far off and semi-savage lands its
intrepid soldiers have unflinchingly
borne their standards in the face of per
secution and danger. Jn the United
States the work of reformation and re
generation of these wlte were social euN
laws has been pursued with the same
singleness of purpose.

they are doing and what they propose

Was it worth the price? Has it made

cause of organized labor stronger? If
net somebody has blundered.
The Quickest tray te Cure a Celd.
De you wish te knew the quickest way
te euro a cold? Wc will tell you. Te
euro a cold quickly, it must be treated
before the cold has become settled in the
system. The first symptoms of a cold is
a dry, loud coughing and sneezing. The
cough is seen followed by watery ex
pectoration and the sneezing by a profuse
watery discharge from ' the nose. In
sovere cases there Is a thin white coating
en the tongue. What te de? It is only
necessary te take Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in double doses every hour.
That will greatly lessen the severity of
the cold and in many cases will effectually
counteract it and cure what would have
been n severe cold" within one or two days
time. Try it and be convinced. Fifty

Lima, 0., Nev. 23. A gang of desper
adoes created a scene of terror in Lima,
early Wednesday morning, by playing
highwayman en a number of people and
having a hooting encounter with a
pesse who followed them. G. B. An
spach was en his way te work when he
was Held up near the Chicago and Erie
railroad track, A man was directly in
front of him and shoved two revolvers
into his face, while ene behind him
rubbed the cold steel against hla neck
te assure him that he was equally as
well covered behind.
Anspach thought it was a party ei
fellows out for some fun and shoved the
men away, when they all grabbed him
and' said: "Loek out or we'll sheet
yen." At this he knocked the revolvers
near his face away and at the same ttme
brought his lantern down upon ene of
their heads with all his Btrength. The
blew was a fierce one and knocked his
man te the ground and Anspach started
Several shots were fired at him, but
nene of thorn took effect They all
were wigs and false whiskers and had
the appearance of boys net ever 18
years of age. As they went east along
the track they met an old man by the
name of Remcr, also a resident of
Reece avenue, about 75 years age. They
frightened the old fellow almost te
death, and at the point of their revolv
ers demanded bis personal possessions.
He refused te yleld te their demands,
when they overpowered him and, after
choking him severely, rifled his pock
ets. He Is in a serious condition from
the shock. They held up anether
young man Frank llerred. They
took off the valuable overcoat which he
While one was looking after the over
coat the ethers were plucking a geld
wateh, also taking his pocketbook and
contents. They flourished their revol
vers as freely as in the ether cases, and
threatened his life should he resist
The police had by this time learned of
the gang. The police had gene but a
short distance -when they noticed three
men entering a house net a great dis
tance from the railroad.
After an intermission of a few min
utes four of the officers, with their
weapons ready for use, followed in
their wake, and were In the act of sur
rounding the house when six men
rushed from the heuse and started for
the railroad, closely pursued by the offi
cers. The desperadoes were losing
ground, and two turned and fired 13
shots at the officers.
The officers pulled their weapons, re
turned the fire, and emptied their re
volvers at the desperadoes, who escaped
in the weeds. In the encounter one of
the police was injured, and having used
all their ammunition, they came back.
Getting reinforcements and mere am
munition, they started out again In
