Friday, Jnnr* 20, ISSO,
The vote of congressman La Toll
ettc against the consideration of the
Morrison thrill' reform bill was a vote
against the interest of every man,
woman and child in the third Wiscon
sin district. While nobody in the dis
trict is benefited by the present iniqui
tous tariff laws everyone is injured
thereby. There is a strong and grow
ing under current of public sentiment,
even among republican voters, against
the robber tariff: and the democrat
believes that Mr. fjl I'ollette will he
made to feel the effect of 11 1 is enlight
ened sentiment if fie comes up for re
election next fall. In 18X4 the issue
between Mr. La Toilette and his dem
ocratic opponent, lion. Burr W. Jones,
was the maintenance of high tariff tax
ation against tariff reform. The result
was the election of Mr. I.a Toilette by
a plurality of less than live hundred in
a district which had usually been good
for from twenty live hundred to three
thousand majority, in spite of closely
drawn party lines in the most hotly
contested presidential campaign on
record the growing sentiment of which
we speak was plainly manifested by
hundreds of republicans scratching
their protect ion candidate La Toilette
for the revenue reform candidate of
t lie democrats, Jones.
There are many reasons to warrant
the belief that the revenue reform
sentiment of the district has grown
stronger during the past two years;
and The Democrat would like to see
lion. Burr W. Jones again renomina
te I and the light renewed on the old
line of tarifl reduction. We believe
that he could carry the district on
that Issue. The conditions would tie
fiir more favorable for the friends of
commercial freedom I hau t hey were two
tears ago. As each year rolls round
the absurdity of attempting to bene
fit a people or enrich a country by high
taxation whether tariff or otherwise
h-roinrs more and more apparent. As
the question provokes discussion the
position of the tarifl reformers is ir
relatively st rengl bend; because the
doctrine of commercial freedom is
based upon enlightened reason and
sound principles, and the more their
position is assailed the more plainly
visible does its strength become.
Not so with protection. Founded
only tin fallacious ideas of the laws
of trade, a general discussion of the
tariffquestion would result in its foil
deinnation by an enlightened public
sentinifiit Although there an* main
iilistaflfs in tin- way, if the democrats
of the country will only have faith
and courage to continue the light
against protection robbery they will
achieve a glorious victory in the end.
\\ e behave that the democrats of the
third Wisconsin district possess the
neccessary faith and courage and that
they will manifest it in the coining
fall campaign.
t’Kot'ii rite oit its.
In a speech delivered in congress on
April •_*!'. lss|, (hat eloquent jidvocate
of tariff reform, Hon. Frank Hurd,
said:
1 say to tlio farmer of America that the pros
for him is ly no means encouraging. With
elevatois graitarli's ami waieliouses till IllltM in
overttoM ing, with the oUI crov still uusoM, with
the vast tie his of the groat west greening to the
coining harvests, w ith crops unexcelled in India,
almost ready lor the market, with splendid
promise among all the wheat growing nations of
the earth, and with the price of wheal loss than
SO cents at Chicago. 1 predict that before Janu
ary next that wheat will he ho low that it will
not pay the cost of production, and the Corn
raised on Western prairies will be burned again
for fuel, as was the case years a;o. When that
time arrives the fanners will be beggars in the
midst o! their own plenty, and paupers by the
side of their own golden gathered sheaves.
There is absolutely no relief to the American
tanner except tn the making of foreign markets
tor him.”
The farmers "i America du not need
he told that Mr. Hunt's gloomy pre
diction has been almost literally ful
filled. 1 f there are any who entertain
doubts upon this point. The Democrat
would advise them to glance at the
daily reports, of the Chicago market,
and (hey will find that wheat is quoted
at about ~1 cents; corn, At cents; oats,
d7 cents; barley . 50 cents: j*ork.
per barrel; creamery butter, PUr 1(1
rents per. pound; and cheese. (> cents
per pound. If any further evidence
is needed to show that the condition
of the American farmer under high
protection is not altogether lovely , we
might refer to the recently reported
shipment of corn from Nebraska and
the sale of the same at Chicago at a
price which nettial the Nebraska farm
er the princely sum of live cents per.
bushel.
The republicans have o|euedthe fall
campaign by sending out vast num
bers of protection documents to voters.
There is only one thing for democrats
to do. and that is to meet the tight
squarely upon the tariff issue. And why
should they hesitate to do so? Their
position is soundness itself, while the
doctrine of spoliation is simply absurd
to the intelligent student of |K>litieal
economy.
We can understand why congress
men Stephenson and Price should vote
against tariff reform, because those
gentlemen have grown rich in the
struggling infant lumber industry.
Hut I.a Follette of Dane county, and
and Thomas, of Crawford county,
Duenther of Winnebago county—w hat
sort of an excuse have they for voting
to tax their farmer constituents to fur
ther enrich the Stephensons and Prices
and all other various gold-grabbers of
the country. As to Van Sehaiek, of
Milwaukee county, he probably was
ferninst the bill because somebody told
him.—Milwaukee Journal.

Julv The hoys treated our citizens
with some choice music on Saturday
evening. They had their new suits on,
and presented a very attractive appear
ance.
On Tuesday about 11 o'clock, about
a dozen young men from Mont fort,
drove up at the Linden Hotel, ordered
dinner, and announced their intention
of placing our base hall club a match
game. ()ne of Linden’s nine was soon
found, when a search was started.
< )ue reporter said four horses were run
down getting the club together. Some
came up out of the mines, some from
the farms and workshops, and by -'i
o'clock the game started, both clubs
agreeing to play live innings. The
two first innings Moutfort led the
game, the next Linden led, and the
fourth Linden white washed Moutfort.
The game now stood Moutfort P-k
Linden 11, with one inning each to
play; hut the tide was running against
the Moutfort boys at the last of ttie
game, and all of a sudden they remem
bered that there was milking to he
done at home and they must go. The
Linden elult suggested that a commit
tee he appointed anti sent out to milk
the blank cows, so that they could
finish the game, but to no avail, and
tin* game ended. If the boys had not
got in such a hurry they stood a good
chance of winning the game. You
can imagine how excited some were,
when quite a number didn’t take time
to figure with the landlord on the
amount of milk consumed for dinner.

Two Wisconsin Old-Timers.
We clip the following from The
•date Democrat. published at Lincoln.
Nebraska:
Col. 1. K. Messmore, of (.rami Rap
pids. Michigan, is in the city, and is.
u-<> believe, a guest of Judge Amasa
Cobb. The writer hereof remembers
when away back in the dim distance
of over thirty years ago the style of a
leading law firm of the pioneer mining
town of Mineral Point, Wisconsin, was
Cobb and Messmore. The individuals
of the lirm were the gentlemen named,
and now Col. Messmore is making up
his mind, we understand, on the better
late than never maxim to come west
and settle in Nebraska. As Judge
Cobb dryly says it will be a case of
come west without the young man.
Col. Messmore is. we take it. the same
age as his old time partner and appar
ently as well preserved. We mention
this last matter because away back in
the sixties Col. Messmore became a
democrat and has remained so ever
since and consequently has not en
joyed such ]olitico-crcaturc comforts
as have fallen to his more steadfast
former associate. This case we con
sider shows up fairly how a first class
conscience will sometimes offset first
class political honors and emoluments
in bracing up fellow travelers through
this •.a!e of tears.
Additional Names of Veterans.
