The-joke of the campaign par excel lence is undoubtedly Mark Hanna's challenge to jointly debate the issue of imperialism with William Jennings Bry an. .' No funnier things has happened in the political campaigns of the last half century. The sideB of democrats, repub licans and populists all over the country are sore from laughing over it. liunna discussing issues on the same platform with the ablest debater and greatest orator of his time would pre sent a spectacle for gods and men to marvel and make merry over. A dung hill rooster contending with nn eagle could not present a more ludicrous sight, than would a forensic controversy be tween the coarse, fat, vulgar boss of the republican party and the peerless leader of the democracy, the patriot and states men without fear and without reproach, William Jennings Bryan. Yet, although Mark Hanna has per petrated humor of the most excruciating degree of funniness, he has done it un conscioucly. Although he was blufling, he had no intention to juke. His motives are accurately interpreted in Mr. Bryan's ironical reply when ask ed if he intended to accept the challenge to a joint debate with the man who says "there is no trusts." "I know nothing of the matter," he says, "except what appears in the pa pers. No challenge has been received and I would not accept it if it was. While I would be glad to debate the question with the republican oandidale for the presidency, I would not be will ing to debate with one whose responsi bility is less than my own. If I am elected, I shall be president. If the re publican committee is willing to certify that Mr. Hanna is to 'be president in case of republican success,) shall will* ingly meet him in joint debate," The real incentiye behind Hurina'a challenge to debate the question of im perialism with the democratic candidate for president is to indicate to the coun try that he is 'not oflly the supreme boss of tiie republican party, but that: be is the virtual president of the United States. McKinley is but a figurehead in the government, 5 COUNTY TICKET. For Auditor -feA'-JZ-'GEO. UARTW RIGHT of High Point. $ £5 For Clerk of District Court, ft ARTHUR E. MOORE, t-h wS of Deoatur.

A good many are taking the ground that the proposition will carry. There are doubts about the matter however. The oaly arguments in favor, of the amend ment is that it will lesson expenses. But the small amount saved in this way will pot equal the expense tljat will be in curred through new complications that will arise. Besides the people enjoy the yearly campaigns and they are educat ors. The amendment should not carry. —Mystic Letter. Ttte'comi.ng eleotions in this state will have one feature that has been but little talked aboutV* The peopfe will be called upon to vote upon an amendment to the constitution of the state, providing for general elections eyery two years in stead of every year. If the proposition carries, our whole, system of official terms will have to be changed All offi cers now elected for two years will have ~to be elected together, or the terms ex tended to lour years, and county super visors to six years. Another objection ,r„ to the plan, and a serious one, is that "j: theelecti^M^^ateofflcers andi legltda taresjsM^^^HMMsd from presi itions, a tWTiitt^sT^A*4 allowed his selfisdrflc^eticysto- get the better of his discretion in his Delphi stump speech, and let it lie known that be look's upon the contest for the presi dency as a struggle between himself and Mr. Bryan, and considers Mckinley is a mere dummy in the game.—Kansas City Times -Ki. The Chicago American reports that a searching poll which it has had made of Chicago shows that Bryan will carry that city by a plurality of 74,720. That would look as though Illinois would be carried for Bryan, as well as Indiana. Bryan prospects are much better than they were in 189C. Tlie best and most succinct comment on McKinley's letter of acceptance is from the St. touia Republic, as follows "Europe's empires will doubtless feel greatly strengthened and encouraged by the elaborate defense of empire now published to the world over the signa ture of the president of the world's greatest republic." Since the Dingley taritt was passed under its protecting wings 650 trusts have been organized, with a capital ization of 15,000,000,000 and these trusts have so increasrd the cost of the necessaries of life that thousands of workmen have gone on strikes because they are no longer able to support their famlies on the wages they receive. —Pittsburg Post. isiii There is plenty of work for every man who desires work, is. one of the sayings of republican newspapers and platform speakers. At any rate there are 142,000 jobs open for men at 70 cents a day down in the coal region of Pennsylvan ia.

MARK HANNA IS DESPERATE. Mark Hanna has grown desperate. The Washington Post, a republican paper, protests against Hanna's eflorts to work up a panic, and warns him that the tactics of 1896 will not do for the campaign of 1900. And now we are told that Hanna has a "big wheat deal on the tapis" and that in the neighborhood of election day wheat will be pushed "up to a high notch in the hope that McKinley's cbancee may be improved. Following is a con fidential letter from a broker to one of bis Chicago customers Banking House of Ira N. Godfrey, Commercial Cable Building, New York, Broker in Stocks, Bonds, Grain and Cot ton: A confidential letter received from one of my friends yesterday says: "I am advised confidentially that there is a big wheat deal on the tapis, and I feel so sure of the situation that I thought-best to communicate with you, in the hope that it might be of service to you, as' well as myself. "The advance will be gradual at first, but the foundation is being laid for a moyement of material consequence— probably 20 to 30 cents a bushel, and it may be more. The basis of this deal is a political one and will be under the auspices of the strongest financial com bine in the country. The powerful back ers of this administration must do every thing in their power to insure a continu ance of the republican party in power and the gold basis. "Watch your other connections close ly and I will reach you from time to time with additional information. Don't be afraid to take hold of this, as my ad vices are POSITIVE." This letter comes from one ol the best known wheat experts in this country, who is a personal friend. If you are in shape to take on a few thousand bushels of this cereal, I feel confident you will realize a handsome profit before election. What you de cide upon must be done at onco, as the movement is likely to start any day, and I desire you to take full advantage of the advance. Very truly yours, IRA N. GODFREY. Hanna is without argument, and it is necessary for him to resort to arti ficial measures in the hope of saving his candidate. 0 r.

The "dinner pail" is not overflowing in the anthracite coal regions of Penn sylvania, according to recent advices from that section. In order to reduce production the trust, it is stated, has cut down the number oft workdays, re gardless of the "full dinner paiP' prom ises of the tiust party. Miners who are given only three days'wo^k in a week are not likely to become too tat or be spoiled by prosperity. Up in Massa chusetts, where there is an immense re publican majority, the "dinner pails" in many homes are not running over.

Hon V. R. McGllnk, our next con gressman, spoke at several places in Fremont and Page' counties last week. The Sidney Herald speaks thus nf the meeting at that place: "Mr. McGinnis divided the issue un der discussion with Mr. Genung, giving to the latter "imperialism," speaking himself on "the trusts." "Space prevents more than a brief synopsis of the eloquent address deliv ered. "The speaker said he believed two po litical parties as necessary to this na -tibn as a- president fujid congress.

We, democrats, believe in a strict construction of the constitution and that it contains with in itself the declaration of all the power which is necessary to use in carrying out its provisions. The speaker devoted nearly the whole of his time in discussing the trusts along the following lines: 1. The manner in which a trust 'is organized. 2. Some of the evil effects of the trusts in this country. 3. The question as to whether or not the administration in power is favorable to these trufets. 4. The remedy which the democratic party will apply, if elected to power. "Mr. McGinnis spoke rapidly, logical ly, convincingly, for more than an hour, frequently being interrupted by cheers and apolause.- It was plainly evident that his one purpose was to en lighten the minds of ^voters who had not made as close a study of this prob lem as he had. In all his discourse, his language was chaste, his diction pure and clean, his grammar perfect. Not a word of slang, not a sentence that could be construed into abuse or vitu peration was uttered. "In closing he said 'I am not here to ask for any office. I have a business of my own. I love it, it~. is good enough for me. If the people say by electing me that they want me to -represent them in congress, I will represent them, the eighth district of Iowa and not trusts. I live in the district, not in Washington, D. O., where my opponent resides and who never enters the dis trict except in campaign times. 'Had I been chairman of the inter state commerce committee as my Op ponent has been, I Would at least have tried with all my power to change some things here in Iowa from which we have suffered, and I believe I could have sue ceeded as I know he could, if be had so desired.'" Hanna and his assistants are just now busy in giving to the press interviews on the political situation. The drift of the talk is to the effect that over confidence has taken possession of the republican party and has led to general apathy on the part of the rank and file. Of course these deliverances are intended to spur the boys on to more active work, because it is a fact that republicans are confident of carrying the' election. On the other hand there is a feeling among the cooler and more conservative republican work ere, that confidence in winning is lack ing. Hanna will hardly be able to stir thfit class up. to more active effort by crying out that oyer-confldence is en danitering thsr euccesM! the party, be eause thoae persons tbe cryls intends •to inftuejiee don't bA»ve anything Baking Powder SAD NEWS FOR TRUSTS. mark Hanna is .' alarmed over the growing indications of republican de feat this fall. Fear has seized the camp of the republican national com mittee, and the party boss has begun to use the whip on the party workers. The big republican loss Bhown in the Maine election, following on the heels, of the decreased mojority secured by the g. o. p. in Vermont, has served as the cause for peremptory orders having been issued for every henchman of the party to get out and hustle. Hanna has quietly begun the squeez ing of campaign funds from western monopolists and trust directors. Word has been passed along the line that contributions or pledges must be forth coming during the ten days the head of the party is in Chicago. Sx SIGNS OF VICTORY. Four years years ago forty-eight more electorial votes would have elected Bryan. To be elected now he must get that many votes in addition to those he had in 189(5, and if he loses any of his former votes he must get enough in ad dition to make up for the loss. In 1896 several states on each side were eyidently divided. A slight drift would have sent them over the line. Everything depends now, therefore, on the direction of the drift. A small ma jority in a state is safe if the drift is in the direction of making it secure.^- The Vermont election indicates "that the drift theie is toward Bryan. The democrats are indisputably stronger in Vermont now than they were,four years ago. What light does thafe throw on the. possibilities in other states? f??* The republican vote in Verm opt has fallen ofi about 10 per cent, as compared •with the corresponding election in 1896, increased wh^e tt»e jlemqcraOc vote. hW inc*e Indiana bas 15 electonal' vote Indiana has 15 electorial' Votes. 1896 the republican vote there,WW 754, and the democraticJSQS,573.

A similar process would give the dem ocrats Delaware by 447, West Virginia by 13,822, Kentucky by 56,398, Ohio by 80,501, and North Dakota by 282 PENNSYLVANIA'S ANSWER M'KINLEY. TO 'The last three years have been more satisfactory to American workingmen than any preceeding yeors," shouts the advance agent of prosperity in his letter of acceptance and 150,000 Pennsylvania coal diggers go on a strike to prove the fact. Could anything better illustrate the utter emptiness of the president's claims? Pennsylvania is the home of protection. There, if anywhere in the United States, its alleged beneficence should work itself out in contentmen.t and happfness and universal plenty. But what are the facts? In no state in the union is labor more degraded. Nowhere else is it so utterly at the mercy of corporate monopoly. No where else has it been reduced to hard er conditions. Nowhere else is it liv ing so close to the border land of star vation. The list of grievances of the coal diggers is a frightful indictment of the republican party and its hideous pol icy of class favoritism. The miners complain 'of intolerable conditions.' They charge the operators with opeh or constructive robbery, They cry aloud in anguish because of injustices which should make the angels weep. But the coal barons who contribute muni ficently to the Hanna campaign fund turn a deaf ear to all protests and all demands and say "there is nothing to arbitrate," when their hard-pressed workmen ask that their case be sub mitted to an impartial tribunal.N For days republican politicians have been busy at Scranton and Wilkesbarre aud Hazelton, seeking to avert this great rebellion against monopoly op' pression. They have labored with might and main, exhausting effort and artifice in the struggle to delay the outbreak until after the election. But they have failed. And now 150,000 men are in open revolt against their cruel task-masters^. The latter can afford to be cotnpl* cent. The coal in the ground will not rot nor will that in stock depreciate in value. On the contrary. it will become dearer and out of the misery of these hapless miners the coal barons will reap unearned fortunes out of the ne cessities of the people It Is a pity that Mr. Hanna is so poor this year. He was foolish to spend all his trust millions on one little campaign in behalf .0^ the national honor. •d for later REPORTER SERIES VOL. XXVI. NQ. 5 REPUBLICANS ARE SCARED. While the democratic national cpm mittee have declined to waste any of their ammunition on solid democratic or solid.republican states like Iowa, and will not send any of their speakers of national reputation into Iowa, even in to the close congressional districts where there is a fighting chance to elect a dem ocratic congressman, by tbe extra ex ertions being put forth in this state and in this district ly the republicans, it is evident they are badly scared and fear the result. Lieutenant) Governor Milli man and Senator Dolliver, acknowledg ed to be some of the strongest speakers the republicans possess, have been stumping this district for several weeks. Milliman passed through the city en route to Hamburg, yesterday, and Dol liver speaks at Corning this afternoon and in Creston to-night. He spoke at Mt. Ayr last week, and will speak at other points in the district. One would suppose, to hear the con fident manner in which republican pa pers refer to Congressman Hepburn's sure thing in this district, that the re publicans would not waste much am munition on this district. But tbe facts are, they are badly scared over the prospect and like the boy in tbe woods, who whistled to keep up his courage, they are only talking to keep up the courage of their faithful follow ers, when they make any such state ments. The facts are there is a very large element of republicans in the district who haye become heartily Bick and tired of Hepburn, and also of the man ner in.which the offices have been par celled out to the corporation attorneys of the party. The treatment of Judge Towner in the federal court appointment and his turning down for McPherson's appointment does not set well with them, either. Judge Towner is very popular in this district and he was very strongly talked of for the nomination for congress. After Judge Woolson's death, Judge Towner was encouraged to be an applicant for the federal judge ship appointment and everybody sup posed he would get it. But the corpor ation influences, after they had got the judge out o&the way for the nomination for congresq, turned him down foi fed eral judge and gave that plum to Mc Phereon. who was then a congressman.. mt piece of treachery resort ed to by the corporation bosses of tbe republican party in Iowa, to save Mr. Hepburn's place for him. Hepburn has sat in congress for twelve years, as the especial representative of the corporations. He has served them and the interests Of the money power so well that no other republican in tbe Eighth District need aspire to congress, off once, it would be tbe end of him in this district and there area large num ber of republicans in each county.in the so long as Mr. Hepburn is in the field. If Hepburn could be killed district ready to put tbe knife into him if they see a chance to defeat him and shelve him for all the time. That time has arrived the chances for McGinnis' election are bright and the republican leaders kno^ it, hence they are sending their best speakers into tbe district to cure the disaffections if possible and whip or coax the boys into line. The time is ripe for the democrats of the Eighth District to be up and doing. There never was a better chance to elect an honest representative of the people to congress and defeat an avow ed representative and supporter of the corporations, syndicates, trusts and combines, since the defeat administered to Hepburn by Anderson in 1886. Hepburn standu for all that is detri mental to the best interests of agricul turalists in congress. He voted to put a high tariff on lumber, thus causing every farmer extra expense on every building or fence he ert.cts. He voted for the tariff on wire which adds to the farmer's expenses. He: voted for tbe tariff on Porto Rican products, permit ting the sugar trust to increase the price of sugar. He has never raised his voice in congress against the trusts against the new policy of imperialism and be stands for a big standing army. For years-he has guarded the interests of tbe railroads of the country as chair man of the Interstate Commerce Com mittee, yet he has never offered a bill enlarging the powers of the Interstate Commission, so it might fulfill, the sphere it was created for. Mr. Hepburn has never done a single act, or attempted to, during his long service in congress, to advance the in terests of the agriculturalists and labor ing people of his district. On the con trary he has supported a policy which allowed trusts and protected institu tions to reach into their pockets and take out dollarB they need for them selves and their families for articles they are compelled to buy. Mr. Hepburn Bhould be retired. The republican leaders' know this, hence their fears for bis success, and their ef forts in this district.—Creston Adver tiser,-- u" Lew Wallace jr. son qf the famous Indiana soldier, statesman and poet, annoonoeB that he will vote for Bryan, "In notable instances," says Mr. Wal lace, "McKinley has_ violated his oath ,of office and no trust can be placed in bifn. On the contraryj/Mr. Brya: an tr 12 Pages Phone 22i COAL MINERS' DINNER PAILSP Yet here we have "v Tbe strike of the anthracite coal min-^ era comes at a time to emphasize facts which play sad havoc with the "full dinner pail" argument of the republican rainmakers. It is asserted by the strike leaders that on an average the miners earn ne more than $250 a year. It is also as serted that they are victimized by. "pluck-me" stores owned by the mine operators and forced to pay excessive prices for the materials they use in their work and tor all articles of personal use for themselves and their families. So far we hear no denial of the truth of these assertions. If they are. literally true no one who has himself how the miners live will doubt that they are substantially true. The general public will be inclined to accept the testimony of such men as Father] Phillips, who are thoroughly informed] as to the true condition of these people/ and who have no motive or inclination to practice deception. The testimony of such witnejssesl leaves no room for doubt that the con dition of tbe miners is deplorable. It is conclusive as to the fuct that these people have to live and support fami lies on less than 70 cglits a day, or cease to liye. If the republican party, with its pol icy of tariff protection, is giving full dinner pails to working people—if itj giving them at this very time such proti perity as they never before enjoyed, as the head of magicians of the party claim, how happens it that these coal miners are compelled to live—or starve—on lees than 70 cents a day? The coal mining industry lies at the very foundation of all the protected manufactoring industries. It is itself tariff-protected, as The Chronicle has shown. But if it were not so protect^ directly it ought to be prosperous there is any truth in the protectionist thoery. The protected industries -«rel the great consumers ^rf^'fcoal. They create the greatest-'demand for coal. The labor to supply this demand ought to have a full dinner pail if protection inaken high wages. The. great expounders of protection* ism.
