' t 1. There is no doubt that a very'
I Irge majority of the people of the
riit U. i. wre opposed to a protective
and tariff, whlich ;s the leading issue in
ow- the coming presicde~t:l &lection. I
hier If every man were to cast his 'oO
raw without prejudice or previous po
our Iitical bias and with a thorough
our understsnding of the question,
nei protection would ' be dclfeatcd by
nal- an overwhelmning vote. But the
Sto right has for its enemies, many of
to the rich and powerful, who have
'rm- grown so by the effect of protec
ch"l tion. These men will use a vast
we amount of money. They will de
ake ceive the ignorant, by the corrupt
orf and frighten the timid. For the
.lic first time in 25 years this question
the has come squarely before the peo
ing plie for settlement at the ballot
box as nearly discntanglel from
lis any other issue as it probably cv
;ed er will he. A tariff to support in
Lro- dividuals, or a tariffl to run the
ial government is the question. T'Ihe
case has been argued for more than
an flifty years, and in the history of
ion the human race there has never
re- been a question upon whiich more
lic learning and talent htie been ex
pended. It will however be a hard
s. fought battle. The late war and
Ls. the years immediately succeeding
it gave an impetus and force to the
protective system hitherto un
kIown. With the minds of the
tes people divertedl to other and more
?ds exciting issues and the financial
ics necessities ('ftlhat great revolution
blc enabled it to acquire sufficientc
tat strength to in a great meas'ure
3n- control the governnment. We be
red leive it will be overthrown in the
be coining election. This would be c
e* a certainty but for the fact that a
- the protectionists have grown i
on powerf4jl by the too long neglect t
. of the opposition and further that t
l thousands of laboring men will be c
>r compel hold to vote for a protective a

in . The Bagging Conspiracy.
and --
rn One of the most tearfully threat
ras ening ldangers besetting t is coun
pleI try, at this time, are trhe-so-called
;ate "trusts" organized by unscrupu
eat ious men of large capital or un
gtl limited credit, in order to ferce
l. any special necessary of life or
bt- other commodity, to a lhkighe
eCa price. Those engaged in them
of can be regarded only as highway-!
men-commercial assassins-fo r
their methods are governed by the
same secret plannings, anld nae
the practically those of the highway
ieand railway train roblbers, except
in ing that they are more mean,
a cowardly and dastardly, in that
o their persons are not endangered,
Sani thLcir ncefarious practices are
gli thus ati, esfd of the courage of the
bandit; and 1vo.c 3han all, they .
rob the pool, while t'; o:""s rob
the rich.
of Quite recently the country hast
LVC been cursed withI, and robh'd Iby
sugar "trusts,"tlotur ~trusts," oil
LC "trusts," and coffe "trusts." The
.tst effect of the last named was, that.
le- coffee advannced five cents a pou;ind
Ipt in one day, nearly all of which,'
he while it Inasted, was wrenchedti
t ·from the laboring class; and now
on conies the baggin' "trusts,"
"o which has advanced bagging six -
lot cents (or more) a yard, and
nn cries out to the f:armer "hands
up)," while the i"tru.sts" goes
Sthrough 'his pockets, to rob him
n- of threc million, or imore, dlilars.
hie Why, the Italian bandit; ('apt I
hie liidd, the pirate; Murrell, the
an hIorse thief and general plunderer;
and the bold and intrepid train
of robbers, excite admiration, when
Cr viewedl in contrast with these un
are seen, cowardly. sueak-Iti:ef rob
hx hers-merciless mercenary, mo
rdl nopolistic imostrosities that they

But the farmers and planters
n' all over the country ie aaroused
he particularly the Allianee-and are
I taking action. If they remain
he firm, and firmly united, and can
ire arrange to hold their eropt; until
la substitute for jute is found and
a bagging manufactured, they will
an break the "trust," annd, it is hop
nt ed, financiallhS break the origina
ire tors. aicders and abettors of the
e robber-conspiracy.
ie Many years ago cotton used to
be be manufactured into bagging tot
cover cotton with. It can he done
Rt again. The waste cotton, the fly
n irgs, and stained and frosted cot
et ton can be manufactured into cot'
a ton bagging. This consiumption
will redue the supply for the us
e uwi manufacturers and result in
re advancing the priceof the retrain
f der. But whether it does or not,
d It will demonstrate the indepen.
i <frnce of the producer, and his
shility to thwart the designs of
d the consupiracy. _
Ising cotton for bagging will
c not affect the price of cotton uu
e less to advance it. It will not en
hance insurance, not obstruct ~
s shipments by rail or ship. Tests
made in New Orleans triumphant
f ly demonstrated, ,not alone Its
!- equal fitness with jute, but its kn
IJperiority to it. Beipg of smooth
er exterior, sparks are less liable
to iodge in it in transportation.
So'it is safer.
It is probable that more iron
