Faemebs and laborers in this country of all classes, regardless of politics, if they understood their interests, ought always to oppose all taxes on the necessaries of life as well as taxes upon the wages of labor. It is a fact that to-day there are thousands of men in this country employed as wage-workers, who. with the industrial conditions that prevailed fifty years ago, woult have been engaged in business on their own account and gratifying the love of independence which is the favorite theme of the Fourth of July orator, and which is in fact a matter of great consequence to an American citizen. The reckless legislation of the present administration, and the prodigal use of money for campaign purposes, has financially foundered the Government and the Eepubli can party. There is a deficit of 8100,000,000 for Government ex. penses, and the party campaign fund is exhausted. Now since the money has given out, the only way the Republican party can retain power is to pass an election law ii n it ,i mat will enable them to count themselves in whether elected or not. ' Where ia the proof of Mr. Hak xison's love for the soldier? II invited Tanner down and out be cause Tanner boldly opened the vaults of the Treasury for the ben efit of the soldier as was pledge the soldiers during the Presidentia campaign. But now when Pension Commissioner Ratjm is making his office a personal speculation, he is allowed to keep his place. The truth of the matter is, Harrison was one thing before the election and another thing since ho has been elected our chief executive The Eastern and Western State have been ruled over by a long line of Republican State officials an thoroughly subjugated to Repub lican principles, which pandere to monopolists and created deprcs sion and discouragement in the ag ricultural communities. The farm ers have been literally starved ou of their acres and forced into other pursuits. Their only resource was to seek employment in the mining districts and manufacturing towns, where they receive scanty wages. and when they strike against a re duction of wages, in many instan ces, they are kicked out to make room for imported labor that is com posed of the very scum of Europe, This is "protection" to American labor with a vengeance. The War on the Farmer. We propose to show in this arti- le how tho farmers of this country are being duped and swindled by ho nefarious "protective" tariff aws, and we will give facts and fig ures which defy successful contra diction. Tho facts are incontro- ertible. Tho suspicion has existed for some time that the "protected" (Vmerican manufacturers were sell ing their goods for less money in foreign markets than in the home market, but it was an extremely difficult matter to prove that such was tho case. But thanks to the courage and indomitable persever ance of our Democratic statesmen, ho matter has been thoroughly in vestigated and exposed. Copies of the foreign edition of American advertisements, circulated by the American Mail and Export Journal which publishes several editions one is for circulation in this coun try; the others are for circulation abroad) havo been secured which give the prices American "pro- ected' manufacturers are offering their goods in foreign markets. Wo lave on file a copy of the New York World, which has reproduced pho tographs of advertisements circula ted in South America, and of adver- tiscments of the same goods circu lated in the United States, that can be seen at any time at The CliRON icle office. These advertisements are printed in foreign languages, and aro closely guarded from tho eyes of the American people, ex cept tho manufacturers who have them printed. They represent ev ery class of "protected" manufac tured goods. For the benefit of the farmers we give below a list of farming implements and the prices the manufacturers sell them to the American farmer and the prices the same manufacturers sell the same goods in foreign markets. It will open the eyes of the farmers to the great injustice being done them by ' ' protective ' ' tariff plundered by tho mill-owners and manufac turers, while the foreigner is pro tected, the American farmer is com pelled by law to pay double prices for agricultural implements.

But outside the United States, in competition with the man ufacturers of all nations for the for eign trade, tho prices are reduced to meet foreign competition, am yet the American manufacturer re alizes a handsome profit on his for eign sales, else he would not sell Tho effect of our "protective tariff system is, to make million aires of tho manufacturers at tho expense of the laboring classes, yet the Republican party proposes to increase the tariff for tho benefit o j 1 i 1.1 ine iavoreu lew at the expense o the masses (which aro the poorer classes), to make the rich richer, and the poor poorer.
