The South'a Grievance
That the Southern States will soon
be the scene of a sharp reaction
against the destructive Free-Trade
policy of the Democratic party be
comes more and more probable. It is
one of fate's keenest ironies that a
section which almost from time im
memorial has been the mainstay of
the Democratic party should now be
subjected to the injurious consequen
ces of Free-Trade Tariff legislation at
the hands of the Democratic party.
Day by day the grim-reality of this
fact forces itself upon the understand
ing of the'Southeran people. A re
cent editorial in the New Orleans
Picayune dwells upon this situation

have slavishly followed the lead of
Representative Underwood, either
through ignorance of the injury they
are inflicting 'on their constituents, or
administration and dictate its policies,
yet as a matter of fact this section is
receiving but scant consideration.

"THJO DUTCH BILL-POSTER"—|
He was of large proportions and was
official bill-poster and stage manager
for me in a theatre which I was oper
ating in a good sized' town. The
"Dutchman" was a good workman,,
particularly in handling scenery on
the stage for large attractions, and
with the paste brush he was an artist.
He could decorate more barns and bill
boards with flashy posters than any I
man I ever saw. He weighed some
thing over 300 but was as lively on
his feet as a man of less proportions.
The only thing wrong with him was
that he had a habit of "blowing up''
about every so often and if one did
not know how to handle him it was all
off. On these occasions, perhaps once I
every month, he would storm the of
fice and announce that he was for all
time and forthwith done with the "show
business," and then and there wanted
his weeks wages, or whatever he had
coming. On these occasions I would 1
hand him his money and not say a
word to him. He would leave the
building and I would see no more of
him until the next morning, when he
would come in and announce that he I
had been posting bills since daylight,
and "had got all that advertising up,"
and wanted to know if there was anyI
more to do. Matters would go along
nicely until the next time. The last
time I saw "The Dutchman" he was
running a restaurant and when I told
him I was on my way west he said:
I always thought you were crazy and I
now I know it. You'll never be able
to get as good eats out there as we've
