Tbe St. Louii Republic asks Mr. Har
rison to please observe that Chicago
noainees generally get there. In tbe last
32 yean eight preaideoiial candidates
bare been nominated in Chicago by the
two great parlies, and of these only two
have been beaten. Of the two losers one
had also a Chicago nominee to oppose.
Lincoln was nominated there in 1869;
McCleilan in 1864: Grant in 1868; Gar
field in 1880; Cleveland in 1894; Blaine
in 1884; Harrison in 1888: end now
Cleveland in 1S92. Of these McCleilan
ia the oniy one beaten by a candidate
nominated elsewhere. It is an interest
ing coincidence that Cleveland should be
nominated ther-, cow that bis turn ha'
come to be re-elected.

It is being demonstrated every day that
the young men of this couutry are allying
themselves with the democratic party.
There ia nothing in the old hulk of re
publicanism to inspire young men into
action. If they stay In the old party of
excuses they simply stay as leeches, be
cause their fossil, zed fathers can give
them a place. Young men of intelligence
ask only an equal chance and a fair field,
and are tired of fighting over tne battles
SO years ago. They are tired of the
eternal bate preached by modern republi
canism. Tbey have no interest in keep
ing up such strife . They want an op
portunity to do batt.e for equal rights
ard achieve tucceaa by their own God
given intelligence. They don't ask to
be fed at the public erib simply because
tbe north whipped the south. They aen
recognition - n gro undsof individual merit
and tbe "son of bis father" racket is
obnoxious to any seif respecting young
man. There ia a ring of independence
in tha democratic platform that young men
admire. It is right, they know it and
tbey are falling into line
To Wiaihe W est
Hew York World
Tbe wen is fighting ground for democ
racy this year, and tbe national committee
abould recognize the fact at the outset.
The west should be fought for by men of
tbe west. There should be a western
branch of tbe national committee, com
posed of western men, with head
quarters at Chicago.
Wisconsin is more than hopeful With
reasonable effort Wisconsin is democratic
Illinois is so doubtful that eyery vote
won there will count towards tbe wintir.g
of 24 electors. The sen'iment of the
state is unquestionably democratic on
tbe iial is-ue of tariff reform. An
intelligently directed and vigorous cam
paign should make it democratic in its
electr a vote also.
Iowa is a debatable state. Every inch
of it should be contested. In Minne
sota, where the unff reform sentiment is
so strong that it cannot be repressed even
in republican convention, a fusion offers
a chance worth working for. Michigan,
under ber district system, is sure to give
some electoral votes to the democracy
bow many will depend upon the vigor
and tbe discretion of tbe western can vass
In Indian tbe contest will be a very
determined one. democracy will need its
strongest management there. Tbe pros
pact that the republicans may lose the
alliance states of tbe northwest, with in
cidental but verv great advantage to tbe
democrats, is one that must be encour
aged in every possible way.
Id brief, tbe northwest U tbe region in
which skilled direction and earnest work
promise to mike additions to democratic
strength. Skilled direction and earnest
work will be best secured bv the organi
sation of a western branch of tbe national
committee composed of western men,
with western headquarters and charged
with the duty of winning to demccracy
tbe wes'ern elect- rnl votes now doubtful
The World earnestly urges the national
committee to create such a branch at the
beginning of tbe campaign, and to bold
up its hands to the en ! . Tbe northwes'

election for tbe flr-d lime since the war.

demonstrated the deep tense of tbe tens

reply to one received by Mrs. Cleveland,
and which read as folic ws:

Madame: It gives me as great pleasure
as representative of tl at great body of
women of democrrtic -ympathies to in
form you that a Franc- s Cleveland Influ

mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of
New York democrats. We nave taken
tbe liberty of using yoir name for tbe
first of tbe many infl lence clubs, which
we trust will spring up throughout the
country, and which after November 8,
will confirm the judgment of that repub
lican leader regarding 1390. that "the
women did it " We f el that this cam
paign is to lift tbe bt.rden of taxation
from the homes or tbe land, and we, as
borne defenders, desire apart ia tbe strug
gle. Yours resrxtfullv,
I art Frost Ormsby.
Pres Frances Cieve and Club, Xo. 1.
In hi? well put rep y Mr. Cleveland
said: "It is. however, for us to ap
prove of tte use of Mrs. Cleveland's
name in the designat on of c ubs de
signed to do political work. We trus"
you will not undervai le our objection,
because it rests upon he sentiment '.hat
the name now sacred n toe home circle
as wife and mother mt.y well be spared in
the organization and operation of clurs
created to exert political influence " As
a matter, of course thi wishes of Mr. and
Mrs. Cleveland wilt be respected in active
political organization', but tbe Eleventh
congressional district Das had a Frances
Cleveland organization for four years.
There has existed at Monmouth a France;
Cleveland club sine; the year 18S7
Regular meetings have been kept up and
the influence of the c ub has been well
attested in many wats. The club has a
large membership am is composed of the
brightest and most excelled ladies in
Monmouth. The Monmouth Review
says: "While giving credit to rivals we
demand recognition for the Frances
Cleveland club of thi c:ty as the charter
cub of the Unitec Sta'es. Our New
York friends must tske second place."
'DIFFERENCE IN WAGES" FARCE.
Our Farmers Now Compete with the
Lowest Paid 4 lmr aw llartli.
Here is food for reflection for the
fanner who still tl links he is voting
money in his pocket when he votes for
"protection." If he will ponder this fact
snflSciently he will y. .lve the whole tariff
problem. It is qu )ted from "Recent
Economic Changes.' by David A. Wells:
"Indian corn can Ite successfully and
has leen extensive y raised in Italv.
Bnt Indian com grown in the valley of
the Mississippi, a thousand miles from
the sealoard, has be.-n transported in re
cent years to Italy and sold ia her mar
kets at a lower cst than the corn of
Lomliardy and Ven tia. wln-re the wages
of the agriculturist are not one-third of
the wages paid in tl e United States for
corresponding labor And one not sur
prising sequel of tl is is that 77,000 Ital
ian laborers ::. J: ited to the United
States in l-.V
In otht-r grains at d food pninets fit:
in cotton it is the sime. The 1 anu fS
and a day labor .f the United States
Competes with the cheap lalor of Eu
rope and Asia and jften undersells it in
its own markets. Thus wheat can be
produced in Dako' a. where wages are
$2 a day. at 40 cent - per bushel, though
it cannot le produced in Rhenish Prus
sia for less than 90 cents: but wages
there are only $C per month. As to
England, her whea - growers have been
driven out of existence by our dear
labor and India and Russia's cheap
Such facts as t lese must settle the
rjnestion forever with rational minds as
to whether or not wages determine cost
of production. Tbey did not do so fifty
years ago, when hi .ch wage Europe was
supplying low w ge Asia with many
manufactured art.cle. Still less do
they do so now, when, with modern
machinery and mt thods, one man or a
boy will produce is much as ten men
fifty years ago. Vhat folly, then, to
say that "on all imports coming in com
petition with the J rodnots of American
labor there should be levied duties equal
to the difference bt tween wages at home
and abroad.'' And yet this is the serious
dec laration of the Republican party in
its Minneapolis p.atform, and it poses
as the party of Nineteenth century civi
lization. These Republicans persist in shutting
their eyes to fac .s. If McKiuley had
consulted tables c f labor cost in differ
ent articles in d fferent countries and
had made tariff rates only high enough
to put American and foreign goods on a
par in our mark ts as to labor cost, his
rates would not h;ve been one-tenth as
high as now. Bu instead of consulting
figures he asked the manufacturers bow
much duty they wished, and, as Con
gressman Wilson aas shown, practically
left blanks for manufacturers to till our:
and they often mi de duties higher than
the total cost of p"oduction in any coun
try all for the be nefit of the poor wage
earner, of course.
Some day the oting consumers will
have intelligence and spun't enough to
suggest to the manufacturer that it is
time for him to remove his band from

"Local Color" in Fiction.
Among the most pleasing occupations of
our literary times has been tbe hunt for
'iocal color." It has been a matter of
faith. Everybody has believed 'n it ns
something you could buy. like paint, in
quantities needed for your palette. It has
been frankly admitted that local color ia a
thing indispensable, especially in a novel,
and to some extent in an essay in biogra
phy. Indeed, there is scarcely any mix
ture that is not improved by it- This is so
well understood that when a writer is
about to put his fiction into limits of time
and space he finds it to his advantage to get,
either by letter or persona! visit and inspec
tion, some local color to make vivid, if not
real, the scenery and personages of his rep
resentation. Very often all he nteN i certain words
or phrases, or at most a dialect. There is
probably more marketable local color in a
dialect than in any other thing that can be
acquired. Giving a knowledge of the pre
vailing wind, tbe shape of the hills, the at
titude of nature in th; t locality toward
the residents, and the dialect, a story can
be made so saturated with local color that
it would deceive almost anybody except,
perhaps, such a person as Hawthorne was.
Charles Dudley Warner in Harper's.
His Kelurtanre Explained.
A well known artist, who hitherto has
been a j:reat enthusiast for the propagation
of "art among the masses," sends us tbe
following story, which leads him to take a
rather gloomy view of the situation. For
the purpose of a picture on which he was
engaged he required a well kept donkey as
a model and commissioned a friend to hire
such an animal. A costermonger was
found possessed of one in erery way suit
able, and was told that an artist would be
glad to paint the "moke."
The owner looked annoyed, even angry,
at the request. Ijuer he called at the gen
tleman's bouse and said. "I understand
you want to paiiit my donkey?" "Yes."
replied the artist, "I shall be very pleased
if yon will allow me." "Why." continued
the coster, "ain't he a good enough color
alrealy?" From a painter's point of view
tbe question was unanswerable, and set
the artist pondering on the great work
that still remains to be done in the art ed
ucation of the people. Ixmdon Telegraph.
Miss Tope and Her Pockets.
While women are bewailing their re
striction to one of the most inconvenient of
pockets there conies from Vienna the story
of Miss Pope and her pockets. She taught
school at too great a distance from her
home to take her meals there, accordingly
she built around the hem of her dress a
series of pockets. In one she carried her
lunch, in another her dinner; the remaining
pockets held ber knife, fork, spoon, salt
cellar, pepper mill, a small plate, a nap
kin, a towel and some bottles of medicine.
Thus equipped Miss Pope made her daily
rounds for many years, mistress of her
self, dependent on nobody. Philadelphia
