SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. fo hi The Chicago Inter-Ocean saye, "The he presidential straws begin to show a vio- 1 lent agitation Harrisonward as Nov. 6 ha approaches. to The Brooklyn Eagle says, "We must it bury free trade by a vote so big that it will take the Cobden club a quarter of a on century to dig it out again." am The Cleveland Leader thinks that any It nation on earth having a tariff for rev- ca enue only would be very hapliy to see cl something like our surplus in its treas- ca ary. c The New York Sun says, "With every ci mugwump and traitor opposed to him, as was the case in 1885, Gov. Ben Hill is a again leading the democracy to triumph 01 in that battle." fc The Philadelphia Niorth American n, commenting on Mr. Mills' designation of the Indiana democrats as "unsurrendered battalions," says he probably meant that p when the Confederate army capitulated it did not include the White Caps .or the B Knights of the Golden Circle. The Courier Journal (Louisville, Ky.) o says some of the Kentucky girls are so intensely sensational that a certain Nich olas county girl recently refused to marry b a well-to-do suitor from Missouri because d he is a Republican. The heat of the campaign has a very peculiar effect upon these damsels of Old Kentuck. b The Newark (N. J.) Journal, democrat ic, confesses that something must be done, or the democratic jig is up. It de clares that there is a dangerous amount ! of apathy among the democrats; that no two of them are working in harmony and that unless a radical change is made, the state will be lost. The Cleveland Leader predicts that|( congress will go with the presidency this year; that the election of Harrison will carry with it enough close districts to 4 give the republicans control of the house of representatives for the first time since the congress which was elected with Gar field and Arthur, eight years ago. The sentiment of the republican politi cal press of the entire North, as also that of many of the leading journals of the South, is that the Chicago convention se lected the right man to succeed Grover Cleveland. The more they see of him the more they feel, as Dr. Storrs says, that "precisely such a man should be at the head of the American nation." The Cincinnati Commercial Gazette thinks that protection works better than free trade in setting a nation out of debt. Tree trade Great Britian, in 1878, had a public debt.of $8,875,000,000. It is now $8,600,000, a decrease in ten years of 1095,000,000. The United States in 1878 had a debt of $2,256,000,000. It is now $1,154,000.000,a decrease of $1,102,000,000. The Chicago Inter-Ocean relates that a straw vote was taken on a late St. Paul west-bound excursion train, the passen gers representing almost every northern state, with the following result: Harrison, 122; Cleveland, 41; Fisk, 10. The cor respondent adds that the exercise of woman suffrage on the same train would have increased the Harrison total by 150 more votes. U The Madison (Ky.) Courier is informed th that a reliable gentleman residing at Lo. cust, Ky., was wearing a Harrison badge. w The gentleman stated that Blaine, in tr 1884, received but three votes in that pre cinct, while now there is a Harrison club p of eighty members out of a voting popu- p lation of 180. This gentleman in 1884 , voted for Cleveland; but, as his badge ki indicated, will vote for Harrison in November. h The Springfield (Mass.) Union charges a that in 1888 Grover Cleveland "flipped j( out" of office a U. S. district attorney in el Western Pennsylvania because he made republican speeches. This year Secre- tl tary Vilas and Assistant Post Master e General Stevenson are making speeches l1 for Cleveland, but there is no flipping out. This shows the progress of civil b service reform in two years. a The Minneapolis Tribune says a battle t for principle is in progress, but the act- e ual necessities of the hour cannot be overlooked without inviting evil conse- I quences. The tariff needs revision, and C the republican party is the only party B competent to undertake the difficult task. c It is now on record as pledged to execute I a well defined and wise tariff policy, if again placed in change of the govern- I ment. The New York Sun calls a halt upon the western stump speaking carnival by cabinet officers. Its latest orders are: "Call in Don Dilkinson too, Brother Cleveland! He is as bad with his tongue as Vilas when he gets away from reason able restraint and off into the frank and boundless West. We are glad to see the cabinet on the stump. It is a manly as sertion of an inalienable right of every American citizen, even if he be an office holder. But when the cabinet gets on the stump at the West, it ought not to talk in such a way to hurt the ticket at the East. Better stay in Washington!' The Philadelphia Times is of the opin ion that it may now be accepted as set tled that congress will guggle along in one way or the other to present any re sponsible action on the tariff issues until after election; that then, if Cleveland shall be elected the Mills bill or some bill closely akin to it, will be passed, and if Harrison shall be elected, "our present high war taxes on the necessaries of life and of business will be reduced by n proAigate appropriations and by high a premiums to bond holders." But hold! ti Mr. Times. Under the "present high war taxes" you prate about, the Ameri- d can workman ca can buy his suit of woolen tl clothes as cheap in this country as in b Canada or Great Britain; and ceutainly tl his "bull beef" and plum. pudding don't tl cost him any more here than across the b water. The intelligent workman asks p nothing better than this. As to the "pro- t. flegate appropriations" the Times alludes a to, it must have reference to the improve- s ment of the rivers, harbors and water. a ways of our country, one of the cardinal doctrines of the republican party from its foundation up to the present time. The high premiums to bond holders might ° have been unheard of, had Mr. Cleveland used the surplus in the treasury, which Shas so disturbed his virtuous slumbers, to reduce the public debt, as he was by St law fully authorized to do. t The New York Sun is deeply exercised a over the widening gulf between the Hill and Cleveland wings of the democracy. y It says that Mr. Cleveland,, being the r- candidate of the party nominated by ac e clamation at St. Louis, and Mr. Hill the e- candidate of the party nominated by ac clamatlon at Bufllalo, there can be no dis y crimination by democrats between them, u which does not break the bonds of party Is and defeat all the purposes of the party h organization. Mr. Dana says, "it is time for Mr. Cleveland to say the word that is a necessary to avert the destruction which his pretended friends in this state are d planning for the party which made him t president, and is now supporting him for a second election." It is questionable whether the wise counsels of the distin guished journalist will be heeded by the desperate land-lubbers now at the helm of the ship of state; and it is yet more m questionable whether any tactics they - might adoit will save the party in Novem ber from the over-whelming defeat they a deserve. 1e The New York Tribune states that by far the greater part of the voters of Irish birth are wage-earners, and have a di rect personal interest in the question be pending before the country. It is not le- strange if, with the history of their own at land to enlighten them, they are more no zealous than many Americans in resent nd ing British assaults upon American in he dustrial independence. Indeed, the voter of Irish nativity who can support the rat Cleveland-Bayard movement against the is American protective tariff ought to be ll able to plead entire ignorance of the to country from which he has come, as well 'ee as ignorance of the history or the coun ice try which has offered him a welcome. col TWENTY REASONS WHY. he - of Here are twenty reasons why the Unit- Ai ed States should continue the protective an system: to 1. Because the most patriotic Ameri- C4 cans have favored it. Washington, Jef- a ferson, Hamilton, Jackson, Madison,Mon- th roe, the two Adams and Lincoln were ns protectionists. D: 2. Because free trade and secession all are alike the products of sectional jeal- th ousy. The first serious attempt to de- W stroy the Union was promoted by free a5 traders, and in 1861 every secessionist ar was a free trader. cr 8. Because the policy of free trade is TI of English origin, and was confessedly proposed to benefit the people of Great Ci Britain. 4. Because there is a necessary com mercial antagonism between the United 3 States and Great Britain. It has always B existed, and will probably continue until 3 Great Britain surrenders her supremacy. n Under the circumstances we, being her a chief antagonist, would be fools to ac cept her suggestions. b 5. Because under her system the United States has reached the position of C the wealthiest nation on the globe. o 6. Because by the aid of protection we have created a manufacturing indus n try which has no rival in magnitude. 7. Because by greatly stimulating b production and mechanical ingenuity, A protection has put within the reach of wage-earners comforts undreamed of by - e kings a couple of centuries ago. n 8. Because it has created an enormous home market for the farmer, without %a which we would always have been sub d jected to the vicissitudes of a varying for s eign demand. ie 9. Because by bringing the shop and - the farm close together, it has greatly ,r enhanced the value of all agricultural 8 lands in the United States. ig 10. Because it has enabled us in a 'l brief period to pay off the major part of an immense national debt, incurred in le the suppression of a war waged for slav t- ery and free trade. be 11. Because it has always kept the e- United States treasury in a solvent con- I ad dition; while free trade has always re ty sulted in the destruction of the national k. credit--and a resort to loans in times of its profound peace. if 12. Because it helps the workingman g. to secure a fair compensation for his ser vices, by shielding him from the fierce competition of the pauper labor of on Europe. by 13. Because it is a fair system of taxa. e: tion, which compel the foreigner to pay ier for the privilege of entering our markets, ;ue thus relieving the home producer of a on- portion of his burden. md 14. Because it is a rational system, in the culcating the idea that it is wise for a na as- tion to be self-sustaining. ry 15. Because it has stimulated national Ice- pride by developing our resources on a on grand scale. t 16, Because the material prosperity it at has brought about has compelled the for eigner to recognize this country as a pin- great one. set- 17. Because it elevates to the first in place the producer, considering his in re- terests as of more importance than those ntll of the mere consumer, who is too often and of the class that toils not nor spins,. )me 18. Because it promotes good work and manship, the live-and-let-live principle sent back of it making it unnecessary to re of sort to what Carlyle called the cheap and y nasty method of produotion, which al. Sways characterizes the work of free t traders. h 19. Because it unhesitatingly con t- demns as an economic error the theory n that it is wise to put men on the level of n beasts in order to secure cheapness for y the consumer. Excessive competition, I the invariable outcome of free trade, is Le bound to produce a result by calling into ce play the stern maxim of the survival of . the fittest-which usually means in econ ,s omics the worker who will permit him e- self to be crowded nearest the limit of r. subsistence. al 20.
