Rock IsUnd is hooored today with the prt-aence of Gen. John M. Palmer, the sturdy old soldier who is so grandly "earing the banner of democracy in the greatest corniest ever waged in the Prairie Wm since the days of Douglass. He iB accompanied by Hon. Andrew Welch, of YorkTille, candidate for auditor of state, and other gentlemen . The canvass that Gen. Palmer is making is attracting the widespread attention of the country. Confronted by a large and seemingly un conquerable majority, he started forth to scale the republican battlements with an intrepidity and courage which only a sol dier could possess. John M. Palmer was always a fighter, and the spirit and vim which he hits thrown into the campaign has awakened the democratic lesion of this great state into an activity never be' fore felt. It isn't the democracy of for mer years with a faint heart and antici pated defeat written on its countenance, but aiouyantr" sypressive and enthus- - JflC V-cracy, convinced ot the nijot eousness of its principles and confident that the people will endorse them at the polls. Gen. Palmer stands the wear and tear of the campaign well. He looks as sturdy as the fore, I oak and as serene as a sum mer morn. His eye is bright and his step firm. With only four weeks left be fore tbe people pass judgment at the polls, be looks as fresh and spirited as though the preliminary skirmish had just commenced. In striking contrast is he to "Private Joe," who looked the picture of ill-health and despair during his recent visit here. The boasted majority back of him when the campaign opened, has dwindled and dwindled nntil the whole republican machine in the state is strains ing every nerve to get a beggarly plural ity for their ticket. Even now, Palmer baa tbe best of it, but not until the 6th of next month will the republicans fully realiie that an era of reform has swept the state as it did New York in 1883. Palmer and lower taxes is what the peo ple want. A LOAD OF BANANAS. Trouble Just Been.

A BTAET OH THE NORTH SIDE LINES Farts ts. Falsehood. In Bome quarters we are charged, I be lieve, with being emissaries of England and missionaries of some kind of "Cobden club." About the nearest club recogni tion men like me may expect to get in Ureat tin tain is from the club of a police man. Free trade is an impossibility In this countv, even if it were desirable. To support the government conts nearly $:tuO,'M0,0tiO a year, and the people must pay it somehow. We raise from the In ternal revenue about $ US, 000.000. and from custom duties (the tariff) the re mainder must continue to be raised In definitely But at present we raise the requisite amount and more, hence the surplus. To prevent that surplus in the future, this dreadful Mills bill that we have passed proposes to put lumber, salt, tin plate and wool on the free list to pay no dutit-s at ail and to reduce duties on foreign manufactured goods from an avenurt of $47 10 on each $1110 worth to a little over $41 to curb. $100 worth, or less than 7 per rent, in other words, the purpose is to give the manufactures of tho I'nited States free raw material as far as possible, and "protection" for capi tal aui labor by a tariff on all manu factured goods over 41 per cent. This is more than twice as hitrh as the tariff of lo0, mar!y fts high as the tariff before the dishonest revision of lss, and much higher than any previous tariff revision since the war, and, with the free list pro posed, it is far morn favorable to Ameri can manufacturers and labor than any tariff that has ever been in iWe in this country. This bill has been framwl in tbe interest of the whole body of manufacturers and wage workers, not in the interest of a favored class. It will enable us not only to hold our own market against the world, but compete fibroad with other producers, thus givinir more work and better wages to our work i ug people lender the present system one-third of our people are out of employment one third of the time. It has bred mitli'.uaires aiid beggars monopo lists and paupers. It gives one employer fcl.fiuo Od'ia year profit and his men sixty cents r day.

Tbe eino trust, by a tax of $2.50 per 100 Shortly after dark the banana loadine bo- gan. and nothing connected with the fruit trade is more picturesque and romantic than the loading of a banana ship, particularly when th work is done at night There was the long wooden building in which the ba nanas were stored, with an uncovered board platform about twenty feet wide between it and the wharf at which the ship lay. A hundred darkies, perhaps more, were loung ing about waiting for the work to begin and there is nothing in which the West India darky comes out so strong as in waiting for tne work to begin. A bie torch was lighted, and the flame ot it made the platform as light almost as dav. Lanterns were hong about inside the building, and through the open doors could be seen great piles of ba nanas stacked up like hay; and all green, for they are cut in the nnripe state, and should not, if they are properly managed, be more than just beginning to show a few yellow streaks by the time they are landed in New York. A dozen men went to work and lashed a ide plank to the side of the ship in such position that it made a platform large enough for two men to stand on, about four feet above the w barf and the same distance below the deck. The cover was taken off the for ward hatch and several men were sent below to stow away the bunches as thev were passed down. Other men were stationed between the rail and the hatch to pass the bunches along. Men and women carried the bunches from the shed to the ship and handed them to the men on the banging platform. An in spector was constantly on the wharf keeping a sharp eye on every bunch and rejecting all tnat bad any blemish or were under size. colored man with a sharp cutlass stood about midway between the shed and the ship, and wttn a dexterous blow cut the lone and less stem from each bunch as it was carried past. Thus each bunch went through five hands in its short journey from the storage ebed to the hold of the ship: First a girl or man picked up a bunch from the great heap in the shed, put it on her or his head, and carried it to the men on the hamriue plat form ; they passed it to the man on deck, who In turn handed it to the men in the hatch way, and they gave it to men still deeper in the hold, who stowed it away where it was to remain till it reached New York. Tbe order to begin work instantly turned the quiet wharf into one of the liveliest places imaginable. Twenty men and girls made a rush for the shed and came out, one after another, with bunches of bananas on their heads, hurrying as if their lives de pended upon making quick time. The two men on toe platform, as they received the bunches, called off the number for the tally keeper, who made a mark for every bunch received. Then began a musical but monot onous chorus that lasted till the last banana was on board. The men on the platform re ceived the bunches alternately, first one and then the other, each one as he handed his bunch up to the deck calling out a number that never went beyond four. First the right hand man cried "Wan," in a voice that might have been heard on the other side of the island. Then the left hand man "Two. And the other one again, "Three," and the left hand man again, "Four," and then the first one, "Tal-iee," the "tally" coming out every time five times louder than any of the others. Then it began again, with tbe "one," "two," "three," and so on, till in a short time the tally keeper had rows of marks reaching across tho broad pages of his book. Occasionally some of the workers started up a song and the others loined in. The whole scene was typical of life in the tropics, with the awning stretched over the passengers' deck to keep off the nieht dews, the darkies at work by the light of the big torcn, tne pleasant smell of the bananas. tne soft warm air and the negro songs. was a tropical cargo that we had through out, witn ow uogsuettds ot sugar in the bold. a great weight of mahogany logs and some hides and tobacco. In a short time the whole wharf was covered with the cut off ends of banana stems, and these had frequently to be swept away. Two or three times somebody's grip failed or his foot slipped and a bunch of bananas came down on the wharf with a thud and broke to pieces, only to be thrown overboard without ceremony. It seemed im possible for the man to keep swinging his cutlass in the midst of that hurrying crowd without nicking somebody's head, or at least lopping off an ear or two; but he evidently understood his business, for no such accident happened, and the cutlass never descended without bringing with it one of the cut off items. It would have been impossible, of course, for such a crowd of West Indian col ored people to work together without soma wrangling and quarreling, and in such cases they are not Bparing of their lungs, and scold away at such a rate that a pitched battle seems imminent. They take it out in scold ing, however, and rarely or never come to blowover their work. This went on from 7 o'clock to 11, with a racket that made sleep impossible. In those four hours 4,000 bunches of bananas were put in tbe hold, and more would have been taken if more had been ready; but another tteamer nad neen loaded tbe day before, and had nearly emptied the storehouse. The stowing away in tbe hold Is work that requires ex perienced hands. Careless work there would result in a spoiled cargo before tbe ship reached her destination. They have to be as carefully j-acked as a lady's trunk, and so ar ranged that the air will reach them as much as possible. A fruit steamer is a marvel in the way of pipes and ventilators and all sorts of contrivances for keeping bananas in good condition. The deck of the Alvo, as soon as we had bananas on board, became a wilder ness of great iron ventilating funnels, each as high as a man's head, and each re-enforced with canvas arms, spread out to catch the breeze. On the other hand, when the ship reaches higher latitudes on her northward voyage, the ventilators have to be taken away and the hold heated with steam pipes. Tbe Atlas Steamship company has a system of protect ing it fruit that seems to be nearly perfect. Tbe hold must be kept at just such a temper ature as nearly as possible throughout the voyage a few degrees higher would ripen the fruit too rapidly and a few degrees lower would chill it. Above all things, no salt water must be allowed to touch the fruit, not even spray, for nothing ruins the banana quicker. The rocord of the homeward voy age of a banana ship is a wonder for its com pleteness. At certain hours every day ther mometers are lowered into the bold through openings provided for the purpose, and a cord is made of each test on blanks provided for tbe purpose. Even the opening or closing of a ventilator has to be recorded; so that when tbe strictly first class passenger, the banana, reaches his destination his owner knows just what treatment he has received throughout the trip.

Precipitates a Strike on Those of the West Aide A Midnight Conference With Mr. Yerkes Produces No Peace, Neither Side Being Inclined to Make Conces sions New Men Kan a Few Cars, Foil of Police, Through the Streets. Chicago, Oct. 9. Tmt Latest. The west side men decided at 4 o'clock this morning to inaugurate a strike on all the lines in their division of the city. This action was brought about by the report of the committee that called on Mr. Yerkes at 3 o'clock this morning asking for further demanls for the North side men. Mr. Verkes asked for more time. say ing be would let them know later in the day. Tbe committee said he must decide then and there. This he refused to do.and it was so reported to the men in waiting at Sea men's hall. Upon receiving this news it was unanimously decided to strike, and as soon as the last all-night car was run in about 6 o'clock this morning all the lines on the west side were to be tied up. Chicaoo, Oct 9 The first cars on the north side street railways since the strike was inaugurated Satur day morning, were run under police pro tection y e s t e r day morning. At all the barns there were large crowds of strikers, ftvmnnthiz- 'IJ ers and onlookers of various kinds, and the new men were jeered as "scabs" etc., whenever they appeared, but re ceived with open arms and loud cheers when they deserted the company, which they did to the ex tent of probably a moonky abolandmax score, being tnere- nnto incited by the belligerent outlook. In side the barns the special patrolmen of the Hooney & Boland detective agency kept watch and ward, while outside about all the available police of the city and of the town of Lake View were on guard, and it took their utmost endeavors to keep the strikers from charging the cars as they came out manned by their new crews. The chief point of interest was at the Limits barn, and here tbe greatest and most aggressive crowd of strikers was assembled. At 7 a. m. the doors of the barn opened and three cars came out, manned, so it is said, principally by men brought from Philadel phia, some of whom, after making one trip and seeing the situation as to chances of get ting broken heads, weakened and joined the strikers. When these places had been filled, tbe strikers having observed tbe effect of one trip through the hostile crowds, made no demonstration against these latter, trusting to their experience ou -n trip to bring them to a proper condition mind from a strik er's poii.t of view. A 'one point along the line a large number of women joined in the jeers that the men were flinging at tbe new men. Each car that started down town was guarded by ten policemen, and this fact suf- tee from the strikers; stipulating only that the committee must be composed of actual I street car men. At 1 o'clock this rooming the conference between President Yerkes, Mayor Roche and a committee of the striking west side car men, which commenced at 9 o'clock, had cot been concluded. Tbe best information obtainable was that the conference had not resulted in any agreement and that it was not likely one would be reached. The west side men were still in session awaiting tbe result of the negotiations. BAYARD TALKS TARIFF REFORM. The State Secretary on the Stamp at Wilmington, Delaware. Wilmington, DeL, Oct 9. Secretary Bayard spoke here last night, fully 8,000 per sons crowding themselves into the Opera house. He spoke for three hours, and almost the entire speech was devoted to a defense of the Mills bill and a criticism of the propo sition of the Republican senate. The tana had nothing to do with wages, said the speaker; they depended upon tbe productive ness of tabor. High wages in America pro duced cheaper goods than low wages in India It was folly to believe that laws were necessary to enable manu f aeturers to enable somebody else to make a living. The benefit of the law never got any further than the manufacturer. He despised the idea that the chance of any American to work should depend upon any body. Tbe only protection the American citizen needed was of just and equal laws. He treated tne tariff as a tax during his en tire argument, and in conclusion he cited le gal decisions to prove the illegality and un constitutionality of a tax that took a cent more than was needed for public purposes. The speaker wished to see a happy blending of the interests of the manufacturers and the laborers. The speech closed at 11:20 with three cheers for Bayard, and three more for Cleveland and Tburman.

Ar- kansaw Traveler. FIRST CAR LEAVING TH BARN. ficientty accentuated the apprehension of the authorities to make the general public shy of traveling by tnat route, and but few fares were collected, most of tbe citizens prefer ring to take no risk of broken beads by patroaizinj; the ten-cent a-trip expregr wagons, etc., that continued to ply between the outskirts and business center of tbe city. A dosen or socars were run at tolerably regu lar intervals on two or three lines during the day, and withdrawn at night During tbe day there were no positively riotous demon stratioru no cars overturned, or tracks ob structed, and the new men were frequently assailed by urgent appeals to desert the com pany, such as: "We'll stand by you. Vt e'll see that you get a job if you want to stay here. We'll give you your fare back to wherever you want to go. Be men with men. Don't let it be said of your little ones that their fathers "scabbed. Drop the lines, iear off your register. But as there never has been a street car strike here, or elsewhere, where violence did not appear sooner or later, there was a de cided under-current of apprehension for what might occur before the trouble was over. Tbe fact that the male citizens of the north side declined to take tbe risk of riding on the ears while matters were so unsettled did not deter the fair sex, and by the time the cars reached the terminus at tbe court house on Washington and Clark streets there were a number of lady passengers. An immense crowd stood on the court bouse steps and lined both sides of Clark street for a block and a half. As each car arrived it was greeted with cheers and groans, according as the empty or crowded condition of the vehicles called for the one or the other. When the women dismounted from tbe cars they were made the butt of considerable ridicule, and boots of displeasure met them on all sides. One of the striking conductors said nearly every strike was embarrassed by the women. Baid he: " 1 bey can't be kept out of tbe cars They won't walk If they can help it, and they bate to ride in buses or in express wagons, even when the weather is warm. While the north side cars were making their labored trips the west side force of car men were in a ferment over what It might all mean for them. Their executive com' mittee was in session nearly all day, and at 111 m. a cnrnm:ttee beaded by their presi dent, Lnke Coyne, went to the north side offices to tee Mr. Yerkes, and notify him that U he did not accede to tbe demands of the north side hands the west side roads would be tied up.

He Replies to Some Statements Made by Hon. Ion Dlckinaou. Grand Rapids, Mich., Oct. Mr. Blaine arrived here at 1 o'clock p. m. yesterday and was received by a large number of Repub lican clubs and escorted through crowded streets to his hotel. He has fully recovered his voice and was in excellent health. Crowds thronged the stations on the way here, and at Grand Ledge and other points, where short stops were made, Mr. Blaine ac knowledged tbe cheers of tbe crowds by a wave of the hand and conversed briefly with the people. After a rest at the hotel and partaking of refreshments, Mr. Blaine was escorted to Hartman ball, where be addressed an au dience of 5,000 people, devoting a large por tion or his address to a reply to the remarks of Hon. Don M. Dickinson, to the effect that: New England selfishly hangs on to the body politic, absorbing Its wealth and giving nothing in return. We buy of New England at extortion, ate prices, kept up by the tariff, while at the same time we sell her nothing. In answer to this Mr. Blaine produced fig ures to show that New England bought from the western states $310,000,000 worth of products annually, and from the whole country products amounting annually to the sum or more than $400,000,000, while old England, he said, took but $327,003,000. He then proceedr-d to argue in favor of a pro tective tariff. He was enthusiastically cheered as be made bis points. Mr. Blaine reviewed a torchlight proces sion in his honor In the evening, and at tended the Republican meeting. Being called out, he declined to make a speech, but congratulated tbe citizens upon what be had seen since be had entered tbe state of Michi gan. Mr. Blaine goes from here to Ooshen, lnd.. where he speaks on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday at Indianapolis. On Satur day he will be at New Albany; on Monday next at Evansville, and on W ednesday, the 17th, at Lafayette. An Attempt to Limit the Politico-Econo mic Eloquence Falls at the Start Al lison and Vance the First Speakers- Chief Justice Fuller at His Post Oberly Confirmed Exolnnlon Seems to Exclude The Surplus Congressional. Washington Cttt, Oct 9 Another long siege of debate on tbe tariff was begun in the senate yesterday, the opening speech on the senate bill being made by Allison. He first commented on the action of the house, stat ing that its committee had taken a long time to present a bill, and claimed for the senate bill that it would stop the accumulation of surplus reyond sufficient to redeem the bonds falling due m t&H, and criticised the administration for permitting so large a sur plus to accumulate. Coming to the features of the iwo bills be said that the calculation of the reduction to be made by the Mills bill was based on the assumption tbat the importation of article on which the tariff was increased would be correspondingly reduced. This was prob lematic, but there was no question of the re duction to be made by tbe senate bill It was between 6l,t00,000 and $73,000,000. Of tobacco question Allison said tnat tbe com mittee bad yielded to what they had sup posed was a universal sentiment in favor of taking the tax from that article. As to the abolition of the tax on alcohol for use in the arts. Great Britain and Germany had had tbat principle in their taxing systems for many years, and found no difficulty in pre venting frauds in that connection. Coming to the sngar question Allison said that ev i with the proposed reduction of 50 per cent the duty would remain at 41 per cent ad valorem. He believed that sufficient encouragement for tbe production of sugar from sorghum or beets was toft in this pro tection. The effect of the house bill in regard to the sugar schedule, he said, would be to legislate $o,000,000 a year, or 12 per cent of their capital, into the hands of the sugar trust Ihe effect of the proposed advance in duty on imported cigars would not be much felt, as they were a luxury. As to tbe schedule of "provisions" he said the senate bill proposed specific duties as far as possible. 1 be committee was considering a rate on im ported eggs. The committee had substituted specific for ad valorem duties on silk and silk goods, following the recommendation of Secretary Manning. This he thought would increase somewhat the duty on silks. In conclusion Allison said that the senate bill was a distinct measure of protection to American industries, while the house bill was a long step in the direction of w hat was known as free trade. Vance, a member of the minoritv of the finance committee, said that tbe government of the United States had entered into a part nership with the manufacturers of the United States at the close of the war to establish an unholy and iniquitous system of taxation upon the many for the benefit of the few. The house bill made a total reduction of 7b,u00,00;. How did the senate substitute divide its reduction of duties It took $9 from the government for every dollar it took from the manufacturer. anee con tinued at some length to argue that tne ate bill was framed in the interest of the favored classes. He said tbat if Henry Clay were alive he would denounce the senate bil most bitterly. It was nonsensical, he said. to hold tbat high tariff meant higher wages. If it did wages would not differ in every state of tbe unioa He denied tbat tbe manufacturers furnished a home market for tbe farmer, and Baid that the decay of agri culture was most noticeable in manufacturing districts. He accused tbe Republican party of thwarting the efforts of the Democratic party to reduce taxes. Tbev would have the president pay a premium of 30 per cent to their friends, the bondholders, to reduce the surplus, but the president did not choose to do it Nobody would be deceived by the charge that the Democratic house was re sponsible for the delay in sending a measure to the senate, for it is well known that tbe Republicans of the hous? had resisted every step in that dirertion, and tbe Democrats who had halped them to defeat the efforts of the Democratic party had been lauded to the skies.
