The Democratic party lowered the

Hadley and bis record.
AS there ever such I
bra SCO fallacy its the
claim of Republican pro
tectionists that the tariff is a shield
and protection to American labor
against the pauper labor of Europef
The very fact that this alleged for
eign pauper labor is admitted to
the United States without restric
tion if it is not brought here under
contract to compete in our mines
and mills with American labor, dis
proves at once such a claim. The
American laborer has to compete
with it right at his own door.
Again, the tact that tbe tariff is
not bated on the difference in the I
cost of labor in Ftirope and the!
co.-t of labor in America, but is'
raised away up and beyond any
such difference, and that the Amer
ican laborer receives bo appreciable!
roportion ol the tribute thus
forced from the Amerioan oonsum
er for the benefit, of the favored
few, while it perceptibly increases
the laborer's coat of living, in an
other clear refutation that the tariff
is a benefit to labor. Also, the
fact that labor has to organize it
self Into unions and federations in I
order to maintain any sort ol dc-'
cent stardard of wages, is the most
crushing proof that the tariff is no I
protection to the American laborer.
and the man who tells him it is
presumes upon his ignorance and
insults his intelligence. If it were
not tor the labor orgaohattions in
this country, labor would be worse
enslaved than it is and its condi- j
tion more deplorabh and certain - I
ly it is deplorable enough now in 1

ohief campaign stock in trade, to
keep alive the sectional prejudice

the bugaboo of business depression
and threats of financial panic if a
Democratic President and Congress
were elected has been its main
shibboleth. Republican stiiutlpat
spellbinders are exploiting this
SCUe-SOrOW again in the present
campaign. Aud yet all the panics
that have occurred in this country
in the Inst fifty years have been uu-
der or had their incipieucy under
Republican administrations and
Republican high protective tariff
laws. The panic of 1H7.'I wan uu
der a Republican administration
and a high protective tariff law.
The panic of W07 was under a Re
publican administration aud tbe
Dingley tariff law, which was so
oppressive and unjust that public
opinion forced the Republican par
ty to put a tariff revision plank in
its platform, with which it fouled
the people as usual by violating its
campaign pledges and revising the
tariff up instead of down, as some
people were foolish enough to think
it meant to do. The panic of 1898
began the latter part of a Republi
can administration and reached its
climax in 1898, just after a Demo
cratic President and Congress had
been elected, and under the Mc
Kinley protective tariff law, u year
before the Democrats had an op
portunity to pass a tariff law. Af
ter the Wilson tariff law was en
acted business began to revive.
So it is clearly to be seen that those
who attribute the pauic of 1893, as
the staudpat spellbiuders are do
iug, to the change of administra
tion from Republican to Democratic
or to the Wilson tariff bill, which
was not passed until a year after
the panic had reached its worst
stage, are either ignorant or dis-honest.

olir attention to a line of attack on
liubllonni and which I urge you to
i in your district. They are raising
the falsi- mid wholly unfounded charge that Democratic sucaoac
will mean business depression. To show you one way In which
they an- attempting this line of fooling the voters, l quote a few
sentences from a letter recently gotten OUt from their Chicago
Headquarters which they are now sending the business firms:
"T he campaign now In progress bas a direct personal
interest for you. Cpon Us result depends tin- maluten
utiec of the present business prosperity which the conn
try Is enjoying. Why sacrifice present prosperity for
uncertainty and depressnm, which a tariff for revenue
Only WOOld certainly bring."
That theae suggestions are wholly false and -in- wickedly made
to fool tin- people is evidenced by the fact that, with tbe election a
very shnrt time off, and with al si i very reader ami thinker and
political observer believing thai Wilson and Marshall will he elect-
I, yet practically ever line of business is showing extremely
marked activity. The rullroiel- are placing heavy orders for new

year by many millions ol dollars monthly) wholesale houses are
having tremendous d -mauds for goods; tin- steel mills and factor
ies are foil of orders, bank clearings show heavy gains till over
the country. This Intense Business activity is due to the fact the)
the bualneaa world know s Uevernor Wilson will do just what lie
says he will do. His record Is one Of complete fulfilment of his
promises. All well posted bu-iness men know that Oovernor Wil
son's election will help rather than disturb business, because they
have absolute confidence that lie means every word of it when he
"We don't want to disturb the industry of
the country. The changes I in the
tariff i which we mnke should be made only
at such a rate and in such a way as will least
interfere with the normal and healthful
course of commerce and manufacture."
I call your special attention to tin- fact of these evident condi
tions of heavy business in tin- lace of the very apparent election of
Wilson and Marshall. What does this mean" Simply that the
legitimate buaiuces world knows thai the election of the Demo.
oratle ticket means continual ami unpn denied prosperity; yet iii
