Harrison: He Wears Well. | From not one section of this broad l does there come ihe slightest dissatisfaction with the national Rc ; publican ticket, or with tho princi ples upon which it stands. Just ! think of this condition a moment, i I'erhaps, though, if you aren’t busy, you better thiok of it mors than a | moment, for it is rare that such a | condition obtains to be thoughtabout. I It is an omen of success not to be | lightly considered. Not since Lin coln ran the second time has there been such unanimity among Repub licans. You remember the result then? One of the strongest reasons why things are now as they are is the pe | collar availihility of General Ilarri ; son as the head of the ticket. The •New Yolk delegation at Chicago discovered this fact when it came | unanimously to his support. Indiana knew it all the time. The Pacific coast learned it within a day after the Chicago Convention adjourned. The entire country has been fully convinced, of it ever since it got ac quainted with the republican candi date. No man ever came suddenly into overwhelming prominence and wore so well. What did the country discover in General Harrison? It discovered: 1. A man whose trainiug had won derfully well htted him for Execu live work. 2. A man who is himself the best possible representative of the pro gressive American. 3. A man whose public and private life consistently bear out bis firm, but always modest Christian pro fession. 4. A man who believes in consti tulionsl protection, not simply for the sake of protection, but for the vike of American workingmen. 5. A man who is not a demagogue in his healthful interest in the labor ing classes, for ho has always been a poor man, is a. poor man to-day, and has always worked hard for a mod est living. 0. A man who has the backboue to be his own boss. 7. A man who will be a real Civil Service reformer, not a sham one, be cause lie says he will be—and Ber ja min Ilarrisou’s word is where the republican party has put United States bonds—above suspicion. It is uo wonder the republicans | are united on such a man. Nor is it any wonder that they have drawn to their side thousands who have not hitherto acted with them. Harrison: he wears well. ! # Indiana is a doubtful state in only one respect and that is the size of the majority it will give for Harrison and Morton. The same is true of | New York. —Las Vegas Optic. Tom Patterson says that the pro tective tariff is the direct cause of all trusts and is responsible for tnein. Tom is a free trader, but he does not explain how free trade would affect the coal trust of which be is a mem ber and which he raised the price of I coal quite recently, nor does he tell ; how tree trade would stop the Dou | ver syndicate from putting up the ' price of flour.—Carbondale Advance. How is this for democratic testi mony? On June 20th, five days be fore he was nominated, the Newark, Ohio, Advocate, Democratic organ, and now reviler of everything Re publican, said: “General Benjamin Harrison is in the prime of life, and in full vigor of both body and mind. He is a Christian man of the best type; a citizen of noble integrity of I character; a man of clean life and reputatiou; a model husband and father, indeed, an American without fear and without reproach.” Even the most hide-bound Bourhou organ in the land daren’t say as much for Mr. Clevelaud. It would be laughed out of town if it did. No man was ever in fiercer rays of less charitable light thau General Harrison has been in for nearly four months. During that time thou sands of experts, urged on by hatred, by self-interest and by democratic money, have mercilessly scrutinized every act and almost every thought of the man. And what did they j find? They found: 1. That General Harrison favored cheap Chinese labor. The charge would not stand. It had a weak back. Colonel Brice fed it liberally and Senator Gorman gave it electric baths. But it was no use. The poor thing died many weeks ago. 2. That he said one dollarisenough pay for a laboring man. Millionaire Scott tried his own Moroy-letter treat ment on this lie, but Joe McDonald don’t hold any of that $2,000. 3. That lit- once spoke slightingly of the Irish Americans. This died a born-in and it wasn’t thought worth while to hold a funeral over it. 4. That he is a figure-head for Blame. This was killed by tho Har rison addresses. The people didn’t go to see Cleveland, because they have encyclopedias at home. 5. That he is the grandson of his grandfather. That charge sticks. While democrats have been search ing with loaded microscopes and poisoned probes, the great mass of I American voters have been gazing into the Indiauapolis glare. And what have they seeu? 1. They have seen a man of high Christian character in the midst of a typical American home. 2. They have seen this man grow steadily in the hearts, in the minds, and in the estimation ef the people. 3. They have seen him visited and honored by business men, by trades men, by professional men, by labor ing men, by neighbors, by strangers, as no other candidate was ever lion, ored before. 4. They have seen by his bearing, iby his actions, and by his speeches, ! that he is worthy to lead, that he is leading, and that he is his own man. 5. They have seen that the grand son of an honored grandsire is a grand man, fitted in every way to be the head of the grandest nation on the globe. Mr. Patterson’s coal mine is still a member of the coal trust and Mr. Patterson’s organ has never said one word against that infamous conspi racy against the people of Denver. The coal trust and its candidate will be remembered on election day.— Denver Republican. Those who are revenue reformers have no excuse for suporting Clcve j land and the Mills pill. The Senate Tariff bill reduces the revenue to j a greater extent than the demo cratic measure. Prick a revenue reformer who favors Cleveland and you expose a free trader. Louis Suizbacher has received a letter from a friend in New York state, who is a democrat in politics and a large manufacturer, which states that all the signs at present point to the election of Harrison by a large ma jority. The free trade proclivities of Cleveland has estranged from the democratic party all who are in any way connected with manufacturing interests, whother as employers or 1 employed.—Las Vegas Optic. We paid Reven dollars taxes last winter on property we never owned, with the understanding the county commissioners would give us a rebate of that amount, which they have ever since refused to do, not that they deny our rights in the matter or that we are not entitled to the rebate, but Luke Cjihill says if the commission ers would allow our rebate others would make the same demand, Luke says it takes ability to be a commis sioners and we believe him so will vote for J. D. Martin, a9 every other man in the county should. The President’s abuse of the veto power was never more forcibly set forth than it was by Blaine in his speech at Detroit on the third insL He said that inasmuch as it required a two-thirds vote of both houses of congress to pass a bill over the Pres ident’s veto it virtually gave him the legislative power of 13 senators and 54 representatives. This power so extraordinary was naturally used with great caution by our earlier presidents. In the first forty years of national government, measuring from Washington to Jackson, the veto power had been used six times. In the next forty years the veto was used 60 times, and of this 60 over 50 of them were by democratic presi dents. So that party which professes to be so intensely democratic has been uniformly one which resorted to one man power to thwart the pop ular will. Up to March 4, 1885, when the present president of the United States was inaugurated, the veto power of the government had been used in all about 95 times. That was from 1789 to 1885, one hundred years lacking four, and now Cleveland in three and a half years has used the veto over three hundred times or had when I left Xew York day before yesterday. How many times he has used it since I do not know. This speech was vociferously cheered showing plainly that the vast audience was with the speaker and against the president and bis veto policy. The democracy judg ing by these manifestations can have but little hope of carrying Michigan.

For particulars address this office. The wisest thing all wage-earners can do at the coming national and state elections is to vote the republi can ticket. The best labor party in this country is the one that fosters and protects labor’s means of sure and profitable employment, and that party is the party of the protective tariff—the republican party.—Toledo Blade. One of the most significant fea tures of the campaign is the general enthusiasm among the ladies for the republican ticket. Women have al ways been on the right 6ide of all questions, and their moral aid in this campaign is most encouraging to re publicans. The democratic free trade policy is a threat to supersede the American home by the European peasant’s hovel. The home is wom an’s empire, and no wonder that she is doing all in her power to repel invasion. Mr. Patterson has dropped the brass-tag issue like a hot potato. His magazine was exploded when the public was informed that in his own mine m Boulder county, the Fox & Patterson, the same kind of tags is used as in all other coal mines of the state. As a matter of fact, as we have frequently shown, workingmen are not known, by number in any mine in Colorado, and Mr. Patterson was entrapped in his own disposition to play the demagogue in the matter, —Denver Republican. We arc glad to seo that Senator Quay is giving so much attention to the preveutation of democratic frauds in this city. Here is the key to the situation. It was the solid south and the saloons of New York City that put Mr. Cleveland in the White House. There has not been an hon est olcctiou here for 20 years, if there ever was ouo. The democrats rely on the frauds in lowor wards of Mun hanttan island to turn the scale against the intelligent republican voters of the interior.—New York Tribune, NUMBER 21. A Nightmare. In the bwaling swirl of the sough fal wind, as the gnat goes gloonng by, I sit by the bole of a bourn fill birch, with a moan and a soulful sigh; tbe mellowing mists of the eve are low, and the frog in the darkfol marsh chirps chirpingly sad in the ghoulsome gloom, in a swivering voice and harsh: O, where i<* the swing of the iwoonful swish. And the voice of the film flam fowl? Methlnks It moans from the murky mold. Prom the home of the hootful owl. Now swivel me swift from the surging spring, I’m weary of wold and wind; the grewsome graik of the jabbcrwock comes jimmering to my mind; the feeble song of the spot some frog comes solemnwise, sough* ing slow, and again I hear by the bonruful birch tbe wail of his wim pled woe: O, where swing of the (iwoonful swash, From the land of the springfnl sprole? Must the blue mist blur on tbe tinker's drale. And freight with their fraught my soul ? I dreamed, I dreamed of Amelie Rives, in the dim of tbe darksome dark, and methought I rode on a moonful main, in the prow of a pail ful bark; I wrought a rhyme as t roamed along, in the stream of the starful gloat; I awoke at dawn in the dimpled day, and above is the rhyme I wrote.—Lincoln Journal. The Colorado Springs Gazette hits Mr. Cleveland and his administration a hard blow in the following para graph: “David 3. McGill, who fought at Fort Fisher and left a leg ou the field, had a salary at New York Mills of six hundred dollars. It gave him a reasonable support. He has been removed and an able bodied democrat, who never smelled powder, was appointed in his place. At a parade at that place en Monday night, on one of the banners was in scribed, “Fort Fisher. Remember Major McGill.” There was proba bly no reason for his removal under civil service reform rules. It was dictated simply by partisan feeling. If there were democratic maimed soldiers needing places and there were not enongli to go around, it would not seem so bad to give the democratic soldiers a chance as well as the republican. But when wound ed republicans are turned out* of of fice to give the office to able-bodied men who uever fought, it shows that the pledges of the administration are not very well kept. There are two sides to this pension legislation that was shown when the matter was un der discussion. No one party was unanimous. But when it comes (9 the question ot giving employment to a soldier who is maimed and a citizen who is not, other things being equal, there should be no hesitation.” Mr. Cleveland has been endorsed by the great British West, who rep resents the Court of St. James at Washington, but he will be repudi ated by the Great American West, of which Colorado is a glorious part. —Denver Times, No party cau impose a duty on lead and wool that would be high enough to invite a protest from Colo rado. No party oan legislate in fa vor of silver that will not receive the sympathy of every citizen of Colorado. We do not believe in and advocate protection on these pro ducts because we are democrats or republicans, but becase we are citi zens of Colorado, and because our dollar interests are involved in this question Governor Adams in a speech at Leadville. The only market we can certainly oonlrol is our own, and this, from the fact of being the best in the world, should be most jealously guarded against encroachments iu the iuterest of foreign rivals. If out side markets really offered tho rich reward that free trade advocates bold op before the eyes of American voters, it is quite safe to conclude that those foreigners in whose inter est free trade is urged would be less persistent in their efforts to get a hold upon the trade of this country.
