The Banner is not exulting
over the fact that the Republi
cans are rapidly falling into dis
favor because of their failure to
bring prosperity and redeem
their oft repeated promises.
We could afford to endure for
awhile Republicanism if we
could see any change for the
better in the business conditions
of the country. But, as the
promised prosperity has not yet
arrived, and there is no im
mediate prospects of its coming;
with none of their promises re
deemed, it is the heighth of folly
to expect sensible men to again
be deceived by such silly and
demagogical promises. Nothing
but individual economy and the
readjustment of credits can bring
prosperity again, and jthat will
require time and patience. It is
the history of panics that they
come lightly once in about 10
years and severely about 20 years
apart, and the latter last about 5
years before a material and not
able improvement sets in.v Why
this is, the most learned and
careful students are unable to
fully explain, but it is pretty well
known that all things in nature
move in cycles, and the time will
probably come when these ap
parently inexorable laws of
nature will be better understood
than they now are. At present
the only men who claim to fully
understand them are those who
are notoriously ignorant on all
other things. But panics come
and go without regard to theories
or assertions. The one of 1873
lasted for about 5 years and then
the return to prosperity slowly
began and slowly progressed, al
though there was a high protec
tive tariff all the time and for
several years before and after,
These facts are fresh in the
memory of all old and middle
aged men. It was probably the
result of national sickness
brought on by an overstrain of
credit and other excesses, ex
actly analogous to illness brought
on the individual by over exer
tion and a violation of the laws
of health. The day to stop
and settle came again in 1893,
and in the natural order of things
the time for recuperation to com
mence is near at hand. That it
will come slowly no thoughtful
man doubts, but that it will"come
surely is just as certain. There
probably will be no boom but
rather a gradual betterment of
conditions until fairly prosperous
tures prevail. Many of the old
conditions have so changed that
it can hardly be expected that
any great boom wiQ be felt
The day for the surplus popula
tion to go west and grow up with
the country and thus relieve the-j
competition among the laboring
classes has largely passed, and
the world's competition in the
production of breadstuffs and
manufactured goods is daily and
hourly growing sharper. These
and a thousand other conditions
have materially changed, and if
the same conditions never repeat
themselves the same xesiilt can
not follow. But approximate
