Colonel William F. Vilas, Secretary ot the Interior, opened the Democratic campaign in Wisconsin the other night with a speech in Milwankete lefore large assemb!age. Here is s summary of his speech: "1 invite yoa to contrast the condi tiona, the princip'es and professions of the opposing parties in this contest, and the lrutnise of the futurb atrorded by them respectively. What is the Repub. lican party of to-day, and wherein ta it better or more worthy of confidence than it was In 18441 It was in the beginning more al opular uprising than a political party. It found origln and quickening power in the high appeal of justice and tenderness for human brethren in op presion, and in the honest zeal of deep conv iction its following was well nigh fanatical. It was a crusade against a great national sin, sad fell upon the time appointed of heaven for the purilication of the Republic by are. Be it rose to rapid power like the whirlwinds, and, like the shirlwind, it swept its Course of destructive though wholesome vio hnt "Within a decade the e;i% which had engendered its being was moth than de stroyed; it was rootd out as by dyna mite aad t e ad was strewn with the mighty wret. That was the logical paeld of the party's existence. It stood upon or possessed no docta ines of gov ernment, nso principles for the guidance of thei instittions of freedom in the re pes of peace. It was not national, but sectional; a party for civil war, not for natlosal fraternity. But the heart of a vretorious people was in Its grasp, and the rage of war was long unspenat The party retained unslackeaed control of all legislation and taxation, with all their possibilities of frantulent gain. It ws, the opportunity of opportunities for political- freebooters And never fot one moment d!d they suspend their effotts nor even spare the exhausted people.

In both these d'partments, the cost of collection," he said, "hid largely decreased under the a bresent Administration." The Fecretary then compared the ns- I ral administration under the two parties; the resto ation of lands to the public do main, and the removal of the cattlemen I from I klahoma. He maintained that I the Administration had treated the pen sion question liberally. "!tsIch hils Wet sa!d of the private I -pension bills, and there has been much t Tort to nia'nta'n t theory of ill will 1 to soldiers on the !President's part be cause of his vetoes. Yet already more } such bills have passed into enacted law under him than under the Administra tions of both Arthur and Hayes, and by the end of his first term the number will be larger than during the Adminis tration of Giant, Hayes and Arthur al. together. ".\nother thing to the credit of the Administration was the "second emase cipalion" of the colored man-his eman cipation from fear of the Iemnoetatid party, and the restored dominiba of peace and feater-ity iii the land." The speaker then took up the tariff question and dwelt ulon it at great length to show the dangers and ipjustice of a high protective tariff, and the ad vantages which wou'd accrue from a re duction in import charges in the way of talarged trade and the decreased cost of living. He said in part: "What would all the money in the world do for us if we had the whole of it ? It is good for nothing, except for what it will buy. What re need in ex change for our goods is what foreign nations have to furnish us. Can we not all agree at once that it is a desirable thing to gather wealth from other bations in trade' Blat what is It to gather wealth from other nations 1 Siliply this, that we Obtain from thee the prodiets of other climes and their industry in exchange for outs. Thus We secure ot onl the utmost that utr country can alord for the hppiness of man, but the utmost that other countries of the World can yie d also. We gather the Wealth of the world, then, not by what we make ourselves, but by what we receive from others, and this is principle of political economy hich ad party exigency br lass interest can ever wipe Away. But how shall we receive from other countries when we forb:d the tntrance to our ports of the articles they would send ust How shall wq trade when we receive nothing ia retural Does any one suppose We shodld sell for money f There is in a few of the coru tries whose trade se specially desire as tsuch gold and silver altogether as equals the values we ought to sell them in a single year. All the gold sad silver coin of the Lnited States Lardly exceeds what we now buy of foregn nations i any year. Trade is exchange of goods, and money is but a facilitating ounvealeace to such exchange. "Pitt away those boary legacies of teudalism, the laws which maintain the rich upon t the tory that the rich will maintain the Government. Make laws and goverament benbacial to all, and trust the people to preserve theml This is liberty. This is Democracy. Tbheseu tariffs which give mosopolles of trade and bounties to the few do'tbot beap up riches on them which others make."

Vilas conc'uded with the follow irg eloquent peroration: 'In the raws which govern this uni verse there are those which guide human action, however sometimes undiscerued, and I should be false to my undying faith in God's government of this world and the nobility of man; false in fidelity '1 to the Constitution and to belief in the I'epublic, if a doubt overc.ast confdence e that the great steps in our forward " progress during the pa-t four year. were but the beginning of a long course of national advancement and prosperity.

Twenty Reasons Why Proteetion Does ii Not Beret High Wges. n The Young Men's Democratic Club, h of Rloston, has issued a little slip con- tl taining "Twenty reasons why it is not true that a high tariff makes h'gh p wages." Below are the twenty reasons: a (I.) Because to say that wage earners i as a body can nlcrease their wages by paying high-ttriff ties, which fall mnainly upon them, is to a:y that a man ban increase his wealth by picking his I bown pocket. c 12.) Bicause the value of wages con- r sists not in money, but in the articles n which money buys, and the exprews object of a high tariaf is to make these a artiles dear, thus decreasing the real q reward of labor. t" (:4.) Because the high tariff policy. o while taxing the wage-earner upon nearly fA everything he has to buy, gives him no o protection upon the only thing he has to c selL We have free trade in human labor. (I.) Because wages represent the wage- C earner's share of what he himself pro duces, and are high or low according as his prOedcttin is large or smail. (.) L'bcause the wages of breen the a one wage-earner out of ten claimed td p be "protectel" are determined by gen eral causes rather than by the tariff. (I.) Becaue if a high tarilf raises a lrages it all, its first and grestett elect must be in the "protected' indusn tries, whereas the rate of wages is con iderably lower in these industries thad ' in the unprotected ones. (7.) Becau a the hgh rate of wageslla the United Sttes is due to othbr causes than a high tariff, such as the extent of I unsettled terr;tory, the large returns of p agriculture, the natural resources of the a country, the extensive use of improved machinery, the intelligence and energy of the working population and thei greater eliceaecy of their labor. (N-) Because at least nine wage-ear. ers out of every ten in this country are engaged in occupations not subject to I the competition of foreign importations, 1 so that the rate of wage which the re ceive enmnot be l ny degrede dependet on s hih tarifl. (n) agari s high tariff upon rai s taterist raises te cost of manutactut ing, restricts the market for goods, and prevents the manufacturer from paleng as high wages as he would have to if hiis materials were free. (10.) Becausetherats of wages in creased faster in this country in the low tariff period between 1810 bad 184o than it ever has since under a high tariff. (1it.) Beeause wages were high in the t raited States < ompared with those pid t in other countries before it ever had r high tariff or ay iariff. C (I.) Becase China ha enjoyed for I thounads of years the full bearelts of highL tariff "protection," while berwages for skilled hlor are 20 cents a day, ad Chinee imalgratin In search of highet wages has become a menace to Ate~rlcan wage-earners.

Reports from all set t'ons of the State continue to be of the gloomiest kind as regards the crops. One of the strangest and most serious causes of the damage to the cotton is thb sprouting in the bolls, a feature which has heretofore been com paratively unknown in the annals of cot ton planting. It seems that a ooud deal of cotton was open when the fauns began about September frat. The continuous rain prevented picking. and the open bolls had to be left in the fields. The seeds in the bolls are how beginning to sprout, tendering the cotton useless for market or any other purposes. Sprout ing is repotted from alms:st every section of the state, and what promised in Au gust to be the largest crop of cotton ever p:oduced in this state looks now to be in a very bad condition. neesh uarotmt. At Charlotte, Sundlay, a daring incen diary set fire to tLe ice factory, and but for quick work the building and ma chinery would have been de.troyed. The factory had been idle since August Ist.

Fire broke out at Beaufort Sunday and spread rapidly, burning the sheriffs of fice and three other buildings on Turner street; Handlers and Hon e, on Dicken son street, and a two-story house occu pied by colored people.

Years ago, when his excel lency was an official of less importance, he became eaquainted with a person of she rank of perfect, who had a son who seemed worthy of being engaged to his daughter. Since then the perfoect died, while Chang You advanced from one position to another, natil by rare fortune, he has became the gosernor of Shantung. The one family becam po renr and poorer, whtle the other gained a relish for pomp and wealth, ease and hilnor. The intend ed son-in.law being urged by personal friends appeared at last at the governor's yamen. Being dreseel in unseemingly costume, he was ignored by some, but at last got his letter in to the governor. The governor seemed to forget the plan of the pest, but in due time he eame to the conclasion that it was better to follow out the engagement than bring himself into dsrepute. A house was secured in a few days-now a we ek ago-th marriage ooclrcel. All the inferior oAl eera appeared neady with presents, and now the young man is higher up in the world.
