It may seem to some extent like a matter of commercialized public spirit, but we are, indeed, genuinely glad to welcome the home-comers to Union City. We are glad from a disinterested point of view. Of course the- idea of inducing the wanderers home was first prompted by n effort to stimulate the fair. But far more deeply interested are we in the old associations after all, and this we believe is the true spirit of the occasion. Welcome, home-comers, o Union City; welcome in the name of home, hallowed with memories: wel come to the scenes of childhood, schooldays, manhood and woman hood; welcome home again for a grand reunion, and may this be one of the de lightful periods in the oases of a life time. Welcome! (By Mrs. Geo. A. Gibbs in the Woman's Edition of the News-Banner.) You wanderers, who forth have fared Upon your various quests, By memories of by-gone days Now lured to be our guests, How joyfully we press your hands! How gaze into your eyes While hopefully we search their depths Where recognition lies. A welcome waits in every home, All latch-strings hang without; We hope to make you feel with us That time has faced about. Again, as in our childhood days, We'll fish in Woodland creek, We'll rob the orchard, as of yore; The cider mill we'll seek. We'll visit all the neighbors 'round, Take dinner, stay all night, Look up the girls we used to court, The boys we used to fight; A Government By Conscience. There is a bit of moral history bound up with the progress of the present Tariff Bill through Congress which patriotic Americans cannot afford to overlook. The movement in favor of tariff re form is no new thing. One of the great est tariff debates in history was that of 1S87, in which Roger Q. Mills led, and Benton McMillin, Sunset" Cox and William McKinley took part Nothing has been added to tariff reform argu ments since that day, except that the discussion of wages has been shifted by the Democrats from the question of wages per day to that of the labor-cost of products obviously the only rele vant consideration. This accepted, the question rests now where it was in 1887. It is the people that have changed The national conscience has gained in sensitiveness. The tremendous impera tive of the word ought" in modern And tired, at night, we'll dream of her politics was undreamed of by the men We regret exceedingly that Senators Shields and Lea and Congressman Gar rett could not be with us at the fair and home-coming. Each one of these gen tlemen mailed personal letters, saying that it was altogether impossible for them to be here for the reason that im perative duties held them at the Cap ital. Every vote is nooded to pass Dem ocratic measures, eHpecially the tariff and the banking bills, and while we had built up high hopes of their pres ence in Union City, the fair is a very small matter compared to the work that devolves upon the Democratic Congress. A few weeks ago when the invitations to be here were accepted, there was no thought of the present length of the session of Congress, and should ad journment have taken place these gen tlemen would most assuredly have been with us. Home-comers send greetings 4o them with the kindost regards. The Woman's Home-coming edition of the News-Banner contained some very fine historical and editorial mat ter. It was altogether an interesting paper, embracing topics by the ladies cf the staff discussed and related in an attractive way. We are reproducing the lines by Mrs. Gibbs to home-comers. This is an exceptionally fine con tribution to the occasion, and one of the best efforts from the pen of local talent we have seen. The paper has been read largely and it deserves the highest encomiums. Col. Ii. T. Whitesell had a persona letter this week from Congressman Finis J. Garrett expressing regrets that he could not be with us at the home coming. Mr. Garrett, as well as the Senators, fully expected to be here after the adjournment of Congress, but that body is yet in session and they were compelled to remain. It is to be re gretted, but the duties of these gentle men are at present in Washington. of 1887. Here and there was one who saw clearly the moral issue bound up in extricably with a policy which involved taxing one man for the pecuniary profit of another. In some instances Sun set" Cox is the most conspicuous ex ample he drove his message home with brilliancy and power. But for the most part the moral side of politics was considered "bad form." Grover Cleve land seemed to the politicians as one crying in the wilderness. The question was discussed on the grounds of eco nomic expediency. Unimaginative gen tlemen, genial, statistical and essentially superficial from the standpoint of scien tific economics like William McKinley, were the favorites. To-day, the tariff appeals of McKin ley would fail upon deaf ears, it is but just to his memory to add that the change began in his day, and that he himself had part in it. The last three years of his life shook him out of his smug and narrow philosophy. On the business side, McKinley had begun to Should we forget, should we forget Jsee that the tariff policy of high pro- The staunch, true friends of long ago? tection was too narrow for the markets Who, in the. dear old days, Lulled all -our night-born fears to rest By knowing mother-ways. Already country hams are on, Fat fowls in "durance vile," While pies and cakes, those crispy sweets, We're baking all "old style." You see you're mighty welcome here At home in this old town; We're glad when you succeed in life And sorry when you're down. Now in the many coming years We hope are yours to live, To you, your wife, and all your folks, A welcome we would give. As all in ancient times well knew That "all roads lead to Rome," We hope for you at autumn time All roads will lead back home. Friends of Other Days.

" dvt ical to the interests of the many, the degrading effect on our political life of the interference of big business in gov ernment these things have revolted the American people. A govern raent by popular intelligence is an old ideal, and a high one. But a people may be brilliant in mind and quick of perception, yet selfish and eold, perpetuating injustices, deaf to tho voice of the weak and oppressed. The highest ideal is government by popular conscience. Democracy must come closer and closer to the ideal of the new earth, wherein dwelleth right eousness.
