A ,1 7 i 'v t f V: THE DEMOCRAT -Trill J'EOPLE'S APER Otol Orsai attHe Tai-Payers. OAPE GIRAKDEAU. ....MO. 1891. SATURDAY, MAY 23, Springfield Journal: Horses bring good prices just now, and the coun try la scoured by buyers. The Mc Kiuley bill put a tariff on horse, and thereby shut out Canadian compctiou. There is no uc in talking, this tariff business is ruining the farmers over in Canada. Among tbe novel laws demanded by the granger politics of the IVnn aylvania Legislature is that "horses ahall not be liable to tax until they are four years old." Horses out here in Missouri would be coltish for a long pell under sncb a law. bh The State of Alabama wants a good aized chunk of the State of Florida Iving immediately south ot her. The country wanted contains about 6.9-0 aqnare miles, with a population of 6.', 000. But how is Alabama to get what she wants? The people who laughed at the Xew York ladies who proposed to take part in the street-cleaning business as a good joke" find that the ladies are iu earnest and that they propose to attend to business. Tammany might as well begin to clean up or to get out Exercise, to be beneficial, murt be enjoyable. The mora enjoyable it is, tbe more good it will do. Even laugh ing does one good. Thus, light cheer liil talk, with merriment and laughter. bas always been known, from time immemorial, to be the best thing after a hearty meal. The friends of the eniment states man Bynum, iu Indiana, complain that "the Washington politicians speak vf Mills and Crisp aud Springer and never mention Bynum once for S)?ak cr." The Bynum f Hows have aright to kick. If there is a greater states man in Congress than Bynum, then Bynum doesn't know it. Colonel Jobn A. Cockerill, says a Xew York letter, retires crmaneiitly from all connection with tbe Xew York World. He came to Xew York with Mr. Pulitzer and began with a comparatively small salary: but his services were recognized by Mr. Pul ltzer, so tbat in retiring lie carries away not only a most enviable reputa tion as a journalist, but a comfortable little property the result of his sav ings out ot the $1S.0o0 a year w hich lie received for some years. He is ex ceedingly popular among newspaper men. and be bas no idea of retiring or resting on his laurels. He isto be the editor, it is understood, of a new penny morning newspaper and will probably use the best of the World" methods. This habit is quite common, aud it is shared by men of the highest pow era. Compassion must be felt lor a man who would like to perform some immortal feat in the way of abstract thought, but is prevented by a mind that plays truant on slight provoca tion. The poor victim may console himself bv thinking that the cross which he liears in life has been sor rowfully carried by many men of pos itive genius, and he may solace his harmless vanity by fancying that bis mental excursions into the land of dreams arc akin to the freaks of genius. One very delicate question comes up in this connection, aud it is, what is the essential difference between the abstraction of the man of science or science or the poet aud the wool gathering of the average muddled citizen? They took the President and party to a smelter in Denver. In the bullion room were piles ol silver bricks and a huge gold brick weighing 1.71 1 ounces and worth about $25,000. It caused a great deal ot comment and John Wauaiuaker essayed the task of lift ing it. He was told that if he carried it a quarter of a mile he could keep it. He didn't lielievc be cared that much for gold and, after lilting it, be replaced it on top of the pile. Tbe President asked him if it was heavy. Try it," said John. With a mighty effort the President lifted it a few inches and. in setting it hack, down came the brick on the floor, missing Wanamaker's toes by a mere trifle. Everybody laughed, and the Post master General said: -I knew there was a tall in silver, but this is the first time I have seen a fall in gold." The Democrats of Charleston. S. C seem to be getting together, and look ing at the general scramble from this distance we would say that the reg ulars have surrendered to the reform ers. The Charleston Xeirs and Cour- irr says that the constitution under J which the reunited Democracy will henceforth act is fair to both factions ot the party, but it adds: "The re formers deserve a great deal of praise for the Arm but thoughtful conserva tive spirit which has hitherto con trolled their eonouet Thev have taughl this community a very whole some lesson, that Ihe people them selves make their own political lead ers." Are we to nndcrstand that the old moss-backed Bourbons take their medicine like little men, and in so do ing admit that tbe people themselves have tbe right to choose their own political leaders? If so, good deal j bas been gained. But this reunion is in the nature of a lesson to the Re publicans. Everywhere it will be tbe policy of the Democrats to adjust lo cal or State differences and get in line for th wp ; I Jolin A.

How many other officials in this country can show a conductor's receipt check' Each tin-plate manufactory estab lished in the United States calls out fresh groans of anguish for free-trade Democrats. If they can not hold up "the poor man's little tin pail" to make the Nation shudder and weep half of their effective oratory is squelched. "A man," relates the Boston Herald. "walked into a Lowell bar-room last week, bought 25 cents worth ol cigars and offered a $1000 bill in jiirnieiit. He was somewhat taken aback when the !-aloou-kecKr pocketed the bill and counted out tor chanire 999 5 in silver." A Democratic contemporary out at Seattle, mourning over "the big ien sion list." exclaims, "What did we fight that war for?"

A dispatch says: -Governor Taylor will join the M. E. Church South, at to-morrow's sen-ices; Chan cellor Dewitt tbe First lresbvterian: M. M. Hope, Chairman oi the Demo cratic County Committee: 'Jack' Springfield, a well-known Republican leader in politics. and others will unite with various other churches." In these times demagogues will be careful not to frighten farmers by mentioning the prices of wheat aud corn aud beef and potatoes, ami lay it all to "the robber McKinley bill." The Atlanta Constitution, however, is bold enough to say: "McKinley w ill not cut much of a figure among the Ohio fanners when thev learn all the dis tressing tacts about his tariff law.' The Constitution doesn't seem to know that Ohio farmers can read. There is imminent danger that the project to make a X'atioual Park ol the Chattanooga battle-ground will end in a failure. The only reason is the rapacity of land-owners. Fair property that was held at the nominal value of $5 to $20 an acre is now thought to be worth $100, $200 and over $300. The commission will not favor a condemns! ion process, aud as they are disgusted with the spirit they will, unless equitable prices are made. report adversely upon the plan. It yon have a little farm or business. or steadv work and out of debt, do not fret snd work yourscll aud wile into the grave for the sake of making money. You have but one life to live and that is very brief at least. Take a little comfort and pleasure as you go on day by day, aud try to do a litlle good to others. A morbid insatiate desire to possess the earth and to grab everything iu sight, is at the founda tion of more misery than almost any one thing. Wealth alone will never keep your grave green alter you arc gone. Richmond (Va.) 7yics(Democratii-): Should anything serious happen to Secretary Blame, or even should he be required to withdraw for any length of time from public, life, it will be a source of genuine regret to every man who has the honor and welfare of the country at heart He rati illy lie spared Irom his post of duly, for without bis brain and experience to guide the ship of State she will be apt to drift about most helplessly.

Modern inventions have brought so great an increase of luxuries to all classes that now the difficulty is notso much to secure what is usclul aud nec essary as to avoid an intemperate ex cess. Tbe opportunity lor gratifying desires of every kind was probably never as general nor as ready since the world began as it is to-day. What pleases the eye, the car, the palate or tbe intelligence is comparatively eaev ol access. Things tbat were formerly the exclusiblc possession of kings and emperors arc an every-day matter in ordinary houschohls, aud many a lux- ury not dreamed of in the past is now considered almost a necessity.

Republicans generally were gladly anticipating the prospects of giviug free trade an everlasting smashing in Irt92. But if our Demo cratic friends will kindly couple free trade and free silver in their platform. so that the Republican sledge-hammer can smash both ol these lunacies with one might v whack, we really don't sec what the Republican parly and the country cau reasonably ask. A Philadelphia doctor, who must have been a bit callow in his youth, was a student at Berlin University- iu 1HM.',. While talking with a lellow student one day iu a park he saw Von Molike pass, smoking. The doctor proposed they follow Ihe great soldier. pick up his cigar stump, and keep it for a souvenir. They did so. Von Mollkc in-tired the act aud beckoned the young doctor to liim. The fol lowing ensued: "Who are you. my sou?" I soon took courage and re- spouded: -I am a student, your Ex- celleucv." - .student where?" he in quired. "At the University," said I. What! a student at the University and engaged in picking up cigar stumps on the streets? What a shame! But what made you pick up my cigar siiiimiwhcn von might just as well have asked me for one, which I would have gladly given you. if you must smoke?" Blushingly, 1 told him the object I had ill following him and iu picking tip his stump, and he soon understood me. and taking out his cigar case gave it to inc. saying: "Take the whole business. I wish I could have von take away mr appetite lor smoking altogether, for it is a habit I very much dislike, but which, to my shame, I must say, controls inc." Handing me the case, in which were four cigars left, he turned and, alter most cordially saluting me, passed on A Iemrrtle View. Whatever may be thought of Mr. Harrison as a political leader, he has certainly shown a keen desire to keep iu touch with the Republican parly, in striking contrast to the last Repub lican President who undertook the delicate task ot "swinging rouud the circle." This was Andrew Johusou. whose "intemperate, inflammatory. aud scandalous harangues," as they were termed iu one of the articles of impeachment, must, indeed, have been little like the well-chosen and diplo matic phrases of Mr. Harrison, that by their kindliness and freedom from all spirit of aggression have disarmed even the criticism of party opponents. II ran not lie doubted that the President bas by this lour materially strengthened the hold ol the Kepubli cans on the people, ami, incidentally, his own hold upon the party as a can didate tor rrnominatioii. He has smoothed down many internal factional differences, and has giveu proof of much political sagacity in avoiding in his trip those debatable States ol Ihe East that were carried by Ihe Repub licans in ISMionlv bv reason of Ihe unpopularity of bis opponent Benjamin Harrison is not a popular man. but he bas succeeded in great measure in reuniting bis party, and that is no small achievement for a President, even if he hns to travel 10.IHNI miles to do it. There have been Democratic standard bearers, it is worth remembering, who were unable lo do as much iu journeys of almost as great a mileage, nud others who, according lo llicir ardent ad mirers, are unwilling to move a step tor the advantage of the parly, if at the expense of their own personal comfort.

THE FREE TRADER. The Xew York Press reviews the Free Traders as follows: "Among the names of fearless, out spoken, unbridled advocates of free trade iu the United Sta'ts during the past quarter of a century uouo out ranks that of Henry Watterson, the brilliant and erratic editor of Ihe Iouisville Courier-ournal. With Carlisle, Mills, Morrison. Hurd aud a few other Democrats holding similar outspoken free trade views, he has succeeded in so impressing that prin ciple upon bis party tbat its last na tional platform was unmistakable in committing the Democracy to the En glish policy. Mr. Watterson bimsclt has iu large part written Ihe platforms of his party's national conventions in three successive Presidential cam paigns. The tariff planks have been his special hobby, and his pen drew those of 1880, 1881 and 1888. They show progressive stages of boldness iu advocating the main principle which is at issue between the two parties. In 1880 there was nothing iu the word ing of the plank to alarm any protec tionist who was a Democrat, yet free traders could rally under the same plank by a liberal construction of its phrasing. In 1884 Samual J. Randall, the ablest protectionist Democrat of bis time, declared in a speech iu Xew Jersey, that the party platform aud the party candidate were not antago nistic to protection. The platform was intended to be ambiguous, aud was capable of constniclions friendly to free trade or protection. Watter son drew it, not as a free trader but as a politician trying lo catch votes. The Democratic defeat of 18HS-ame lo the Democratic party on a plank boldly framed in the flush of victory, which unmistakably portended the free trade proclivities and tendencies of Ihe parly. We have licen thus particular in re calling the history and character of Democratic planks on the tarifl' in re cent years because Henry Watterson. platform writer iu chief for the Dem ocracy, has within a few days giveu utterance to an expression of hisopiu ion that the Dcinocialic party must return to the platform of l.s81 as the model lor 1892. llcwauts lo -straddle" the tariff and every other issue ami secure power by "fooling" the people. That may be a possible policy but Lincoln was wont to sav that the plaiu people may be deceived once. but not a second time. The Demo cratic party pretended in 1884 that they were not for free trade, and pro ceeded to demonstrate in Ihe Demo cratic administration that followed that the party is for free trade first, last and all the time. Regardless of that phisc of Walter son's proposition, it will strike every one as the beginning of a backing down of the Democratic party on the tariff question. The McKinley bill is law ami must remain law for years to come. When leading Democrats like Watterson admit the nrcessity of hedging on their tariff plank, it is pretty fair evidence that protection is here to stav, and it is an even more hopeful sign that the Republican party will win the Presidential election, whichever course the Democracy shall pursue. If Ihey "straddle" the tariff issue as Watterson proposes, the peo ple will know they are insincere and not to be trusted. If Ihey make the direct tight they will be dcteated, as they always have been defeated when protection was the issue." oi R i ni aiH porn.Ario. There are about C3.000.000 people in the United States.
