The Country Gentleman is one of
the numerous so-called agricultural
papers which the moneyed interests
took under their wing and held up by
bank advertisements and in other ways
so well known. It now says: "Even
though millions of acres could be
made to produce bountiful crops by
irrigation, there is no necessity for
them at this time. In fact, to open
them up to cultivation would be a na
tional calamity, and our farmers
should strenuously oppose every at
tempt." There is plutocracy for you.
To make happy homes for millions of
hard working people would be a na
tional calamity! It would relieve the
congestion of the great cities and have
a tendency to raise the price of labor.
That, the capitalists don't want. It
would tend to feed the starving of Eu
rope and make the wretches who toil
there more independent, so it must
not be done.

day of cross examniation of John
Mitchell by the eminent railroad at
torneys before the strike commission.
Although Mitchell showed signs of
fatigue, not once did the railroad at
torneys succeed in weakening his tes
timony. Finally Wayne MacVeagh
said in a petulant tone, "You make the
best witness for yourself that I ever
confronted." Anyone knowing the
least about the science of evidence
knows why John Mitchell had firmly
kept to the truth in all his testimony.

Beyond a doubt the tendency of an
indirect tax, especially a tariff on im
ports, levied with a view to "protec
tion." is to create consolidation and
combination. But The Independent
cannot agree that this is the only fac

the most potent. Given, two manufac

The Independent does not believe so.
In this it is supported by such econ

power to ruin and absorb the other?
Chiefly an advantage in facilities for
distributing its products. In othei

the long run ruins everybody else.
The "lily whites" of the south got a
body blow when the president re
moved from office Julian H. Bingham,
collector of Internal revenue for the
district of Alabama, for expelling fully
qualified and registered negroes from
the state convention of the republican
party of Alabama. There are a few
hundred colored men in Alabama who,
notwithstanding the provisions of the
new const. ution which was designed
to exclude most of the negro vote, are
entitled to the franchise. It was men
such as these that the southern re
publicans drove out of the convention
and arbitrarily erased their names
from the list of delegates. This action
shows that these southern republicans
are true sons of the old gang of carpet
baggers who went down there just af
ter the war and proceeded to add sev
eral degrees to General Sherman's
definition of war.
