in Lincoln the torepart of the week.
The roads loading t our County
Seat are yillianously bad. The word
" villiaii'ius," is the only appropri.
ate one we can think ot, und a ride
over them causes the rider to tetd
that, at the coming election all oth
er olik-ers to bu elected sink into
insigiiilicaiice compared with that
of County Commissioners and as he
contemplates his chances of getting
his neck broken he feels as thuugit
the operation ought to be antici
pated by the breaking of the necks
ot the Commissioners. During
court season all roads lead to Lin
colu and the perils there ought to
besurlicient without aggravating
them enroute.
The political cauldron wo found
bubbling and seething hot. Demo
crats were all by the ears. Sligh
was there seeking a combination
through which in payment for votes
cast lor his son Georgo he was to
deliver the Alliance voto over to
the Democracy. The Alliance men
heard of the proposed deal and were
wroth in declaring that Sligh was
buying short and would tind it im
possible to deliver the goods in
November. We anticipate lots of
fun, commencing to day, when all
parties will bo stripped for tho

l'resident Cleveland tias precipi
tated the conflict between the wage
earners of this country aud the
wage-earners of Europe In all
fairness and candor, 1 ask you, Can
there be but one result, if the theory
of free trade is carried out; and
that is reduction of wages? Our
markets in the present age of 6team
arc only ten days' distance in time
irom tho European markets.
Freights are so low that in all man
ufactured goods this item can hard
ly be taken into account in the
cost of the merchandise. A differ
enco ot 5 per. cent in tho cost of
manufacturing in this conntry over
the cost in Europe, sends tho or
dersby cable to any European
market that is lower in prico than
our own; consequently tno onlv
protection labor has in this country
over the labor in any European
country is the action of a protective
tariff. Then cotr.es the question,
Does the ave-age wage-earner in
this country receive higher wages
and better net results than the
wage earner doeB in Europe? that
is, can you live better, can you
gain a home easier, can you edu
cate your children better, oan you
ay up a surplus in case of sicknoss
or old age, easier in this country
than they can in the most crowded
portions ot Europe?
There can be but one answer to
this question, that is yes. Wo see
it everywhere; wesoe in the health
ier condition of our wage-earners;
we soo it in the way their wives and
children are dresssed; we see it in
their homes, (cf which they very
otton own the title deeds); we see
it in the deposits in the saving
banks (which are wholly the net
results to waeo earners). In the
United States there is duo to 3,418,
013 depositors $1, 235.247,371, an
average of $361.30 to each deposi
tor. We see it in the fact that
thoso who are able to getaway from
labor-oppressed Europe are emi
grating to this country. All these
are hard facts that the free trader
cannot get away from. Free trade
is a very pretty theory, but it is
mainly professional men who ad
vócate it, and it is gratifying to
some to preach "that all ths world
are brother" and that consequent
ly wo should not protect the labor
of our neighbors, our own citizens,
who build our towns into villages,
our villages into cities, who con-
sumo our own raw products. Free
trade may be charity to foreign op
eratives, but I for one believe that
charity begins at home first; that
my own country is entitled to my
firet regard; that tho interest ot the
wage-earner of this country is my
interest; that his success is my suc
cess. I also bel evo that what Euro
pean manufacturers want us to do
is not for our interest todo. When
every European paper hailed Presi
dent Cleveland's massage with de
light as tending toward freo trade,
it convinced me that it was not the
best interest of this country that be
should1 bo ro-elucted.
When the London Times thinks
tho best use thev can make of Ir
ishtnen is to help them to cmmi
errata to this country and join the
Democratic party, and thus help
break down our protective tariff,
that mnlii.a mn think that olir tar-
I .. írmwty lor rhmniallun, ilviiprpi'i,
ill is a irreal uencui mis country, i con.uiMuion, nvt-r cmpiaiui, u
m.tf Ir'tiiltl.... AMfl All ill.. llUUI
and of course, I range tuytolf on rn uf tUawtkm u eiiUmW
the nido of a protective tariff. The
''Mills tariff bul" that 1 indorsed
by the St. Louis Democratic Con
vention and President Cleveland,
keeps about 80 per cent, duty on
sugar (about 150,000,000 to collect
annually), about 100 per cent, on
rice, the very articles that you pay
a large percentage oi, and reduces
the duty on articles where your
waeos enter largely in the cost ot
production. I cannot think that
the Mills bill is tor the best inter
est of our wage-earners, and con
sequuntlyl opposoit, and thePresi
dont who favors it. although I vot
ed tor him in 1834.
The United States ia tho largest
consuming naiion per capita of any
on the globe, and the roason ot it
is that our wage earners are better
paid than any other, and it is clear
to my mind that tho operation of a
protective tariff is the reason ot it.
It we should reduce the tariff on
articles into which labor enters
largely in tho cost; tho forces of
steam and electricity which have
so reduced the time and cost of im
porting goods into this country,
would without any doubt bring tho
cheap labor ot Europe in direct aud
immediate competition with our
own labor. Europe has tho carry
ing trade on the ocean in hef own
hands; I do not want to have them
convey our raw products to Enfopo
in their vessels at the expense of our
producers, und there convert them
into a manufactured product with
her chonp labor, and return them to
us, when it will surely have the ef
fect of reducing the prico of labor
that produces tho same articles in
tho United States. All these are
potent reasons to my mind why wo
ehonld opposo tho re-eloction ot
Presidont Cleveland in 1888. I
append a letter written bv a Demo
cratic merchant ot this city that is
very snggestivo on this subject.
To my friends and readers I will
say I have "no axes to grind," am
no politician, want no oflice; am
an American, selfish enough to
wish for my own country's best in
terests "first, last,and all the timo"
in preference to that ot any other,
and therefore am in favor of a pro
tective tariff. 11. K. Tiiukukk.

The Tribune's announcement
yesterday that the Whito Oaks road
has been reduced to a certainty,
created a degree of pleasure in El
l'aso that wo have never knownex
ceeded. Hopes were deferred long
and weary months. The street
talk had well igh become exhaust

excited, and in turn, demoralized
manv of our people to an extent
that approached positive alarm.
