THE KOCK ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1M86.
The Daily Argus. JOHN W POTTER. Thursday, November 18. 1886. The Tariff quratioa in the Klertion. The defeat of Mr. Morrisoo and Mr. Hurd and the "close call" for Mr. Carlisle in the recent election are balanced by the election of two tariff reformers in Massachusetts and by the plurality cast for one in Rhode Island, the fight having been made in all these districts on the tariff issue. Mr. Molrison has succumb ed to the vote of ignorant workinu'inen bt fooled by the talk about "pauper labor of Europe." Mr. Hurd has again lost his election by the sime means, but as he is not a member of Die present Cow yress, the election in his district does not count as a loss to tariff reformers. The dose run in Mr. Carlisle's district is Ike greatest surprise of all. It is not jet clear whether bis well-known views on the tariff question were the principal cause of his loss of votes, in the cities and larfre tow ns of his district, or whether the uprising in behalf of an obscure fur niture-mtker was similar in character to that which gave so Unrrf a vote to Mr. George in New York. Whatever mny h;:vs been the influences in Mr. Carlisle's cuse. it is not to be de nied that the d feal of Morrison and Hurd his giv,n a ci K-k to the tariff-reform movement. It in (ipiillv true that the success gained in Msichusel!s has, to S'Oiih extern, siiifie 1 the centre of gravity of the movement. The success gained in Massachusetts and Khodc Island potnt9 t a stMli' it: uaetsinss amonw rnaou fitriiin-rs nod to a Mi-picion among the more intelligent of their workingmcn ttuit the tariff is no longer helpful to them, that it is, in fact, what Mr. Henry George, in a '.elter written to a Connect icut friend just before the election said it was, "a f mud on workingmen. " Now that the Blaine liihtantf organs are Sut uring Mr. George and "sofUsJaping" his followers, we thiuk that lliey ought to pay some attention to this letter, written in the very thick of the fray. New Yoi:k. Otobcr 12, 1886. I am a free trailer, pure and absolute, and regard protection as a fraud on workingmen. If I were a citizen of Con-, neeticut 1 woul.l siv'n your circular or do anything I culd to show the workers bow they are humbugged by a tariff which, while protecting; tavored capital' isis and land owners, leaves them free to grind the faces ot their employes. Yours truly. llKNKV GtOKliE. We shall nut esteem it a misfortune if the movement for tariff reform is taken out of congress for a time. It must be admitted that the country has not yet been educated on the question. It is clear also that education must have its beginning in those places where the UritI pinches the people so that they feel it. It is in New England that the pocket nerve has been most severely touched by the iusvnate duties on tools and raw materials. The tariff question is a question of dollars and cents. It appeals to sentiment. It does not touch the henrt. It moves no religious feeling. It is un economic question, almost as cold as the problems of astronomy. It can make its way to public notice oniy a-i it is demons strated to the perceptions and experience of individuals by the actual workings of the tariff that the existing system causes losses which might be avoided. It is in the manufacturing states that this fact will be soonest learned, because here the tariff has exhausted itself. Tne benefits to particular classes hiivc been annulled by the course of time, and the effect of all taxci to lake a shaving iff both wages and profits has begun to show itself. No more striking illustration of this fact can be found than the acces sion of Abraham Hewitt to the ranks of the tariff reformers. All of Mr. Hewitt's business interests arj manufacturing interests. He is not moved by ideality or considerations of universal brother hood to be a tariff reformer, but strictly by the knowledge, acquired in business, that the tariff is a losing operation. It is this knowledge that has given Hie tariff reformers so strong a foothold in Massachusetts. It is this which bus stirred up the wollen operatives in Rhode Tsland and Pennsylvania. We expect to see this knowledge spread and increase in the East, and we expect to see proteo tionism of the Chines': wall type dwin dle and decay in its stronghold sooner than in any other part of the country where it is reallv strong. At preseDt it is a political stalking-horse without any animating principle. I-.iifliilo Hill's Title. r "I earned the title of UnlT.ilo Dill by killing buffaloes on the plains.

Not Chagrined at the Result of the Klec- tlon in HIb Iltrlrt About Twenty Contested Seats In the Next Indiana Leglftlatnre Fraud Charged In Missis sippi Contract Labor Amendment. Chicago, Not. 18 Speaker Carlisle, ac oornpanied by his wife. Is in Chicago and spoke' at the Iroquois banquet Wednesday niht. To a reporter Mr. Carlisle said: "While it is true that at first I wasin dlined to regard tha result of the recent elec tion as unfavorable to tbe cause of revenue reform, I can say now, for the first time, that after lookiug over tho ield and consid ering the advices which I have received from 1 liferent parts of the country, I am con vineed that the cause bas gained s-treiigth, toih in the bouse and m the country cener ally since the last elections. Of the 1M Democaats in the present h.rtise lliirty-ftve voted against tbe . Morrison JOHN O. CARLISLE. bill. In the new house the Democrats will Dumber V.2 or ITS, and tbe supporters of rev enue reform will lie just as stronjr as they are at tlie pn-sent lima Tbft loss therefore fulls on ihe Deinocnils who are oppd tt reform rather than on those favoring it, and tlie result is therefore a distinct victory for the reform element Certain papers have pointed with glee to the fact that certain supporters of revenue reform in the present house failed of renom ination, but they studiously omit to add that their successors are with us on that issue, end that the change was si in ply tixat ot men ana not of princi ples. 1 here is another point upon w h ich I have not pre v lousl v spoken. The protectionists papers throughout the country are loudly claiming that the new labor vote which has been developed in cer tain parts of the country is another crushing blow at Morrison's views, or as I prefer to call it, at revenue relorm. JNothing can be further from the facts as they exist. In very few of the elections did this issue enter at all, and if the workingmen of the part of the country voted indirectly against our princi ples, they did just the opposite at the other end. 'For instance in New York. Henry George, an avowed free trader, gets over ttUw workmmen s votes, while hero in Chicago, in one of the strongest pro tectionist districts m Illinois, Con gressman Lanier who was a thick and thin opHnent of Morrison's bill, gets through Ifarely by the skin of his teeth. iSutUng these facts against the defeat of Morrison, Hnnl and other reformers it will be seen that if the protectionists are going to use the labor vote as an argument they must admit that the account is about equally balanced even if it is not to our aduantoge and they must also admit that where the labor vote has been most fully developer 1 the preponderance, as in New York and Chicago has been in favor of our views. "These are facts, and stubborn ones, and tend to justify my opinion that the result of the ele. tions has not only been favorable to the cause of revenue reform, but that that cause is stronger in and out of the house than ever." In response to a personal question, the seaker said: ' The reports that I have been chagrined by the result of the elections in my i own district are purely sensational. Had my opponent gained on the vote against me in tiie prior elections there would have been good ground for the allegation that there was a condemnation of my course and principals, lint as a matter of fact my competitor did not poll one-half of the opposition vote w hich ws deposited at tbe previous electmn, while the natural opinion of ray own supporters that my seat was not in anv danger accrunts for the lack of activity which resulted in the Democratic decrease in the Democratic vote. Had the differenc between my supporters in ISM and 'M6 gone over to my opponent nobody would deny the significance of ths result, but as he polled only about half of the vote given to Mr. Sandrum in 14, tliere is no need to waste words in explanation. As to a contest of my seat I have no advices, but 1 can only say that tliere is not the slightest grounds whatever for such a course." INDIANA LEGISLATURE. From the Present Outlook There W ill He About Twenty Contested Heats. Indianapolis. Nov. IS. Iii the next legis lature acceding to the present outlook, there 1 will he about twenty contested seats, and. many of the counties in which papers are tiled are Imiling with excitement, which in due tim will be transferred to the legisla ture. Chairman Henderson says that the Re publicans will begin tho matinee by throwing out Meagher, Democrat, of Vigo county, and added: "Then the meeting will be open and preaching will begin.' He refused to un fold the Democratic policy, but it is an oiien secret that for every Democrat of the lower : house unseated by tlie Republicans, who con- j trol that branch, a Republican will be fired j outof the senate chamber. This policy seems ! to be indorsed by the Democrats throughout ! the stale. As the Democrats have contested I more seats than the other side, they will have souiewhnt the advantage. The outlook for a ! rumpus of large dimensions continues favor- able from every standpoint. The ontrtMt-ruor Amendment. SruiNfiFTET.n. Ills., Nov. IS.

Also, there was no uniformity in the wording of the ballots which were voted. Fraud Charged in Mississippi. New Orleans, Not. 18. Maj. Andrew Hero, the Republican candidate for congress in the Second congressional district in thk state, filed a suit in the civil district court Tuesday asking for a mandamus on the reg ister of voters, asking for the right to in spect all the papers in the office.

Taylor, editor of The Boston Globe, bas sent to a number of gentlemen, prominent in tbe Democra tic party, letters in which he aaks the following questions: v hat should President Cleveland do during the next two years in order that. Democratic success may be assured in I? Mr. Joseph Pulitzer replies in an editorial in The orld as follows: JOBEFH PULITZER. The shortest answer wuuld be that tbe president Simula alwwdon his negative, per sonal policy and adopt a positive naitv pol icy: that ne should institute and carry out the reforms to which he was elected to en force; that he should, in a won!, pay more attention to uieas and less to otlice take m the whole w rk of reform instead of confin ing his attention to the mere fragment of it w rucn is contained m the civil service law. but the president can and should do more man this, ite should bv his appointments, recommendations, and by a persistent war fare upon corporations, railroad kings and the moncv power, show to the workimrmen that the DeiuiH-ratic party is in actual per formance what it has always len by virtue of its memhershipand its principles the f nend of the poor. The greatest danger for lies in rue needless detection ot the labor vote. What is the president dom to pre vent it; THE PROPHETIC CONFERENCE. A Vaper on the Objections to Christ's Vre-Millenniui Advent. Chicauo, Nov. IN The Bible an I Proph etic conterenee reenmed its work w ednesday forenoon at Fai well hall, the attendance be ing large. The meeting was led by Rev. (5. C Needhmn, and prayer was said by Rev. Dr. RaM.-ker. of Russia. Letters of greeting from D. L. M.hkIv, Rev. Archibald Brown. of London, aud Rev. Dr. A. Bonar, of Glas gow, were read. Rev. J. M. Urrock. of liton, presented a paper on the "Objections to Christ s Pre- millennial Advent." Ho expressed the thought that, while there are many passages or fHTfipture Thatspoakof tru Kingdom of Christ and Ills saints, there is but one in which the tmlleiiiuui is distinctly named and foretold, and that is the twentieth chapter of neveiations. there tun nutteuium is bounded by four jiotable events, two at the beginning and two at the end. At the be ginning we have the resurrection of the blessed and holy and the bind ing, and the binding and im prisonment of the rtrvil. At the end are the resurrection of th rest of the dead and the loosening of Satan for a little season. "W hi le there was a d i fferenfe of opinion as to tho nature of the things in the millennium, all agree that it will be a golden age when reached, but whether its blessed ness is to lie enjoyed und'T the moonlight of Christianity or the sunlight of the glorious appearing and personal reign of Christ is tho question at issue. All pre-millonnialists have the latter view, but to it many objec tions are made. The paper was discussed very generally, and the conference ad journed for dinner. The Cattle C.rowom. Chicauo, Nov.

Delegates representing seventeen fraternal societies witb a membership of .wt0U0 met in the city Tuesday and organised the national congress of fraternal beneficiary societies. Perman ent organization was effected by the election of the following officers: President, Leroy Andrus, of New York; vice premdentB, W. H. Barnes, ol California, president of the Pacific Coast Press association; J. H. ftiitler, of Massachusetts; recording secretary, R C. HiH, of Buffalo; corresponding secretary, O. M. rjhedd, of New York;' treasurer, Halvor Nelson, ot Washington. A constitution was adopted, of which the princi)al provision is that none but legiti mate fraternal beneficiary societies working under a ritual and lodge system, shall be eli gibte to membership in the national congress. The main object of the congress is to organ ize among the various beneficiary orders a system of mutual information, benefit, and protection. It is Raid that a number of busi ness and speculative companies are organ ized under titles which lead many persons to believe them fraternal beneficial societies. Protection is desired against these com panies. THE DECISION REVERSED. A Theory of Sparks Concerning Land Claims ISadlr Crippled. Washington City, Nov. 18. The theory held by Mr. Sparks that absence from a claim in pursuit of a livelihood was an absence that seriously impugned, if not entirely invalidat ing the good faith of tho residence required on the laud, has been badly crippled by a de cision of the secretary of the interior Tues day in the case cf Josephine A.

She built a substantial house, spent nearly $3t in im provements and broke and put in a crop of about fifteen acres. That same year she went to Devil's Lake and worked three months in the land ofHoe, alter which she re turned to her claim and made further im provements on it. The commissioner of the general land office held hr claim for cancel lation on the ground of this same a tisen.ee in Devil's Lake. In reversing Sparks' decision tbe secretary says that good faith in main taining a residence being shown in other things absence from the land for the purpose of gaining a livlihood can not invalidate or affect such residence.
