Tbcro have been only two instances
In oar history, says tho Atlanta Jour
rial, in which Presidents of tho United
States wero elected by tho IIouso of
Representatives, and in both cases tho
contests in tho Uou3o wero protracted
and exciting, and tho results greatly
aggravated tho animosity between tho
opposing political parties. Tho first
inbtanco was tho election of Thomas
JeHer-on for his first term. According
to tho Constitution then in force, the
Presidential Electors voted for two
persons, and tho person receiving the
highest vote was to bo President, and
tho next highest to bo Vice-President
Tho candidates wero Tho, am Jefferson
and Auron Burr, Republicans, on one
ticket, and John Adaras and Thomas
Pinekney, Fedora' ists, oa the other.
It was well understood by tho voters
that Jefferson and Acirtms were tho
opposing candidates for tho rreil- '
eney, an' Eurr and Tinchey for
tho Vice-Presidency, and the expscta
tion was that to carry out this nndcr
Btanding tho electors would cast at
least ono more vote for the Presiden
tial candidate of thoir party than for
the Vioe-Presidential candidate. Tho
Federal electors did this, giving Ad
ams sixty-five nnd Tinciney sixty
four. Eut the Republican electors
cast seventy-throe rotes for both Jef
ferson and Eurr, thus making a tie
betweon thorn and throwing tho elco
tion into the IIouso. It is probable
that this tie in tho Eepublioan elec
toral vote was brought about by an
intrigue of Eurr, who hoped that by
throwing the election into the House
be might himself bo ohoson President,
the Federalists prefcring him to Joff
ferson. Hie subsequent career ex
posed bis intriguing, unscrupulous
and desperate character. Eut the Eo
publican representatives in the Honso
6tood firm throughout tho long strug
gle, and eventually elected Jefferson,
be receiving tho votes of ten States,
and Eurr tbo votes of four. The ex
citement attending this eleotion ro
vealed a fault in tho praotical opera
tion of tho mode of electing tho Presi
dent and Vice-President, and was fol
lowed by tho constitutional amend
ment providing that the electors
should designate the person voted for
for President, and the person for Vioe
President the pian now, in, foroe.
The second instance of an election of
a President by tho House was that of
John Quinoy Adams, in 1823. There
vere four candidates for tbo Presi
dencyAdams, Henry Clay, William
H. Crawford, and Andrew Jackson.
There was no election by the peoplo
or electors, and after a stubborn and
acgrycontef t in the House, tho friends
of Adams and Clay united, electing
tho former. This result.0, caused
great excitement throughout. the conn
try, and many charges otJ?ttrgaia! and
jforruption. ,J

Steel TaiMTnidis.
When the Congressional Comraitteo
investigate! tho causes leading to. the
great Homestead ttriko they found
that tho aclual labor cost paid by tbo
Carnegie company for making a ton
of bteel billets or blooms (ingots)
ranged from SI .05 to $1.95, and
its actual protection on those in ques
tion under the McKinley law was
Tbo lowest protection under tho
Wilson law on steel ingots is three
mills per pound, or 0.72 per ton,
and the bighest $00.48 per ton, ac
cordiug to -alue.
In 18(30 the, Bessemer and open
henrth men reported products of 98'3,
03'J tons, valued at $53,805,210, at a
total labor cost of $1,930,349, or 3
per ton. The report for 1890 has not
yet been published, and probably
never will be Mr. Porto'r made pretty
ture of that but wa know that tho
labor cost per ton has been "enor
mously" reduced, because wages have
been roduced, but tho reduction in
wages cannot bo attributed to free
trade or even a low tariff on steel in
gots so long as tho Jubor cost in pro
ducing a ton of them is less thaa tho
$1.03 and $1.95 quoted to tho Con
gressional Committee, and the protec
tive tariff under the present law is not
lees than SU.72 nnd as high as $C0.48
lne tariii duty on bteel Ingots is
much higher than tho entire amount
paid American labor for produciug a
ton. It will thus be seen that even if
foreign labor was paid nothing for
making tt'jel ingots tho tariff tax un
der tho present law would not permit
tue.in to undersell toe ingots made ia
this country. Tbo people caunot bo
fooled by Bitch balderdash in this cam
paign. The new steel pool formed
two weeks ago to control the price of
open-hearth steel will do more dam
ago to steel consumers and American
labor than would, absolute freo trade

TIis American peoplo, IrrcapectiTo
of pnrty, bc!i?9 that if thy ro poor
inmidxtof plenty it is berauo thoy
aro robbfllof the pro lucts of tbiir
labor. Chief among the agenciea wbioh
rob them ara tbo great trusts and
monopolioa ulieh control tho mauu
farttiro of nearly all tho commodities
ronsumod tr tha maiscs. Tho ques
tion of breaking down thesj combines
which oppress the pooplo aro of the
foremost issues of tho day. Ibdiuf
from trnt exoctiona, and tho abolition
of tho power of monopolies to make
fortunes out of tho poor, is earnestly
demanded by practically every Ameri
can ritizen.
Vet tho platform of tho Eepublioan
National Convention is absolutely
lileut on tha subject of traflts. Nut
ono word of condemnation for tho-o
conspiracies against tho people was in
serted in tho declaration of principles
given to tho country, nor did ono of
tho many peskors who addrosseJ tho
convention refer to tho dangerous
combinations which aro aappins tho
Nation's prosperity. Thoro wero
plenty of wild charts against tho
Democratic party, and plenty of bun
combo promif.es of high-taxation pros
perity, but no ono darol tj deno inco
thn robber monopolies.
Why this htrango eilone.a? Why
did tho organization of tho ollca
seekers which calls itself tho party of
tho people say nothing against tho
trusts, those enemies of tho people?
Tho answer is easy. It was because
tho trust livo and thrive by roisou of
high protection. Eesanso tho dele
gates at St. Louis wero tha agents of
the trusts and monopolists anl did
not daro to lift their voices against
their masters. Nearly evory trust in
the United States has its origin ia
protection. Tho trusts contribute to
Eepublican campaign funds for tho
pake of buying more favors from Con
gress. Tho party of McKinley ia tho
party of monopolists, anl nothing
more. Every man who is tired of
being robbed by trusts should this
year voto against their candidate.
Homo Jlarket Argument.
In one of his platitudinous speeches,
Major McKinley declared that "what
we want is to protect the splendid
homo market to our own American
Tho Eepublican party has been pro
tecting tho "splendid homo market"
now for thirty years, and tho position
of tho farmer to-day is worse than it
has been in all that time.
Nor has tho depression in tho indus
try conio without warning. It has
pinched harder year by year for
twenty years, till now, with corn at
about 18 cent? a bushel, tho climax
lias been reached.
One need not fro farther than Mis
souri to ascertain tho exact condition
of the farmer. When parents of tho
farming class are forced to deprive
their children of tho education which
had been planned, because of the de
pression of the times, what folly is it
to talk of preserving . tho "splecdia
home market."
Mr. McKinley speaks again of "a
most damaging foreign competition in
our homo market. In what agricul
tural products has this damaging
foreign competition been noted? Is
it in cotton? Is it in cattle, in wheat?
Are not all these exported?
The truth of tho matter is that tha
policy of protection has evoked re
taliatory measures on tuo part ol
countries like Germany and France,
which, by their prohibitory tarifls,
have provented our sales of agricul
tural products and thus caused a glut
in the home market. McKinleyism
means the final destruction of tho
agricultural industry. St. Louis Ee

railroad freights eat up all tho proiits

have to pay tho trust's pneo of $2'J

Tho Italian statistician Lnigi P.odio,
in a letter to tho Cobden Club, makes
a striking exposition of tho lolly o
tho protectionist aud paternalistio
policy 6f Continental Euro;o during
tho past twenty years. Great sums
have been spent by the Slate on rail
roads and other means of international
commerce, and yet tariff laws Iv.ive
been framed ingeniously to make in
ternational commerce impossible or
unprofitable. Tuo real advantage of
the European manufacturer aud agri
culturist over his competitors in
America and in the Orient 13 in tho
abundance of capital at rt low rate of
interest. But this advautaqo tho Gov
ernments of Italy aud Franco have de
liberately thrown away. l',y tiiair
system oi vat and increasing Siate ex-
penditnres, they have so increased
taxation as to more than make up for
tho loW'ir rates of interest tliey navo
to pay. What doe-t it profit the
French farmer to 09 aolo to borrow
money at per cent, as compared
with the ' f! or 7 which his American
competitor has to pay, if his taxes aro
made three or four times what they
used to bp, and what they should be.
by lavish public outlay? This, as
tiignor Lodio atlirm-?, is one of the
worst forms of socialism, und prevents
