Hah I for Toinreediam. liipl bipl why in thunder don't you repub licans "boiler?' Editor We. Ii. Robertson, of the Gallatin Democrat, tiutlilul!) observes: "Heed's rule is insolent and (ran nical, but bad as lie is, be is influiiel) more entl'lcd to reepec.t anil conaidera- lion than are those republican of the house who pi'valnly denounce liitu. yet publicly iiiilioid anil iiiaiulniu Ids decisions.'' a Editors Sturgis A Welseil, of tlie Noosbo Times, note ilia: : "Misiiouri has the largest Reboot loud of ativ atalei in the union except Tcias. and glvea one-tlilrd of Iter revenue for school purposes, a larger proportioii than any other stale." Kditor It. V. McMullrMi.ol the Hills boro Democrat, talk to tbe point: "The boy, while walking through the graveyard, whistled to keep hi I'.oiirago up; so the republican party, a it b evidences ol decay all around and sure Indications ot its own early disso lution Is trying to keep Its courage up by claiming lo silll possess great vi tality and professing to believe (hat ii will triumph iu the stale of Missouri ai the next election. When it sees the tar mors and other laboring classes organ izing all nrouud and reads their declar ation of aims and objects, every one ol which 1. a urclnraiion at war against republican parly principles and poll cics.it must eli her feel that its fate is sealed and its doom pronounced, 01 else it looks upon tho farmers and la borers as a set of ignoramtisou, who do not know their own minds." Editor G II. M.x.oy , ot tho L'nieirl fled Democrat, makes thus: a strong point "A table prepared by Mr.T. Wilson, comparing farm exports with Import of arlic.les for farm UKe on which larifl taxes are levied, says the St. Louis Re public, show "an average yearly tax on each laruier, farm hand aud dairy maid of S2 60." There can be no leasooabie doubt that Ihe tariff works as a lax on agricultural production. It puts tbe whole burden and expense of foreign trade on the farm and glvi'i the farmer nono ol the profits, ainci tbe tariff on his imports robs him of all be would otherwise cie&r on his ex ports." Editor Cor. Roach, of the Carthage Democrat: "Wherever the Australian system Ol voting baa been adopted, the republi cans have invariably bucu dcleated. In many places they ate so discouraged over its good effect that they will lake measure to havo the system abol ished.'' Editor Charles J. Walden think that: "There havo been more failure in business during the one year of Presi dent HiuiiHoii'K administration than during niiv previous year for a quarter ol a century." Editor CM. Mrijrae, ol the Rolls Herald, calls attention to a lacl : "Missouri is tho only stato in the union tbat has passed a law to break up trusts, and yet MUsoiiri is h demo cratic state." Editor Jas. C. Holmes rails attention to a tact, which, like placing quinine on tbe free list, riiswcrs a great many republican sophistries: "New Jersey is a inantilact tiring state. The manufacture of silk is one ol the leading limiiKliicH. In spite ol l ho hitler oppoHiiion of protei:iioiii"tr raw silk was placed oh Hid free lisi some years ago, and since that lime i lies mi I k industry Iihm iiicretiaed from alinoat nothing to 10,ont),o(H) a your. This is one reason !iut N.' .v Jersey Is a di niorratlc state " Kdltress H. McK .

Mi. Wilson writes: "Witb which party should a young iiihii, who takes his pontics not dj iheritaiice or by dictation Irorn others, it by his own intelligent and Indepen- lent judgment, identity himself?

The great sectional issues, slowly ipeuing from the foundation of out government, were fought out by tbt men of a quarter ot a century ago.

There, too, he finds reaction. these policies may be Hummed up in one word, cenlralUa lion. Centralization of political power in Hie federal government. Ceutrali cation of wealth iu favored classes. If is difficult lo say which porleuds more evil lo free institutions, which is the surest corrosive of individual manhood and individual freedom. Tbe history ot Ibe growth of free imtitutioiiB is a history of tho develop ineut of local sell government. That Is their vitalizing principle. Under no other theory practice do we reach the goal of government by tbe people, that government that belongs to the people, not toe government u which Hie people beloug. That govern uieut that deals with a citizen at long ange becomes his master, no matter what its name he, or how its inachiuery may work. That government wbicb he can hold immediately under his eye, on wtiicii no can constantly Keep in hand, that ia his servant. "Our constitution, growing out of tho voluntary union ol independent stales, uadc it possible lo combine tbe two sovereignties stato sovereignty or local affairs a combination that has been weightily pronounced the highest reach ol constructive statesman ship. Tho party tbat Overrides .tbe autonomy of Ibe stales, that aeeks to have the general government interfere with and assume to control matters which the state should and ought ex clusively to deal with, wars against the fundamental principle of our institu tions, the law ot their life and of their healthy expansion. Yet such la Ihe steady, nnrelaxing gravitatlou of the republicau party, aud to-day we find it not only, as ever, striving to gather all political power to the lederal gov ernment, but even to bestow upon it that 'worldly omnipotence that u au- tiexed to Ihe power of dealing out wealth and poverty.' 'It chiel existence, as avowed by ilscit, is to maintain a system of taxa tion that hampers natloual progress, represses production, clogs trade, aud makes war ou commerce, aud tbat, having lu all these ways diminished the earnings of labor, interposes with cruel lavoritlsm to divert a part ot those earnings into Ibe pocket of obosen beneficiaries. And worst ol all pretences, it im poses on ignorance and plavs with patriotism, by calling this policy tbe 'American system,' when in tiulu it is but tbe cast-off garment of British statesmanship. "More than forty years ago, when England sought to widen 'he bounds ot freedom, she decreed Ihe extinction of ber system of class taxation. In lifting Hie burden of unequal faxes from die backs of her laborers aba lilted a political and social pressure which was equally as heavy and to a freeuiau tar in ne galling. "This so-called 'American system' iiiukiM Ihe American laborer more ot serf than his English brother.

"The democratic party appeals lo the youth ol Ihe count ty to rally lo li dHiidtii J and fight against these aenti meuN aud politics of Ihe republican p:irty. Over against tho banner of the bloody shirt it plants tho flag of restor ed union and a reconciled people; i ll'ig that represents uo primacy ol sec ttou, uo grades or geographical dis tinctions of citizenship, but equality ot states and equality of poople. "Against political centralization, by the massing ot powers in the federal government, it tights lor vigorous and healthy local government aa Iho safe guard ot personal freedom. Against Iho centralization of wealth bv unjust taxation, it tights for equality ol bur dens as the condition of i ijual manhood. In all its history, and never more zeal ously than now, it has championvd the cause ot tho individual. Il has uoi sought to add to the power ol govern ment, but lo Iho stature of the men; not to circumscribe Hie citizen with Increasing interference, but to widen the bounds of his tree, untrammelled actions. Trusting to the capacity and j virtue ol the whole people i govern themselves, it bas never peiuiimd i ' lew to soar lu tbe powers ot taxat.ou as a reward lor their administration of government or as a bribe for their support of party. Knowing that under any wise aud frugal government, pros perity and wealth would come by natu ral laws lo our people, its concern bas been not how it might increase trade or wealth, hut how it might preserve and secure liberty. It recognizes that to lostsr capital is to make labor more dependent. i rue democracy means a r.hance in life tor every man.

Yet this Iruit is now threat ened with deadly bliifht. the corpora- lions, steam and electricity, tho ?rea forces of modern Industry, are terribly centralizing in ibeir etlecls.

But when Hie law step's not to curb or chasten, but to aid md lucrease their effects, to add to the power of wealth, lo cherish and pro tect monopoly aud to stimulate tbat latest and most dangerous form ol ouimercial cjuibiuation, the central! zatiou of corporations into trusts, a hadow is flung across the path ot the Ymerkaii youth; barriers that cannot 06 surmounted are rising before bim; us ueriiage is passiug from mm into the possession ol others. Classes differentiate, and society, as elsewhere hardens iuto it unyleldiug stratifica tions. This is the great contest of the future the struggle between tbe people and plutocracy.

"No young mail ought to hesitate as to his duty in soon a struggle. He dis credits bis maubood when he enlists under the banner of the bloody shirt. He wars against posterity when he consents to accept service or coininauu iu tbe subsidized battalions of monopo ly. The tight for lower taxes is a fight tor higher manhood. The fight tor local sovereignty Is a tight for broader freedom. "There are, aa Mr. Cleveland well says, no .weak, weary or dependent members ot tbe true democracy to-day.

Advertising iu the best periodicals has a permanent Influence which re mains always at work, because it is mainly addressed to an intelligent audience, who are ol biisiiioss habits and appreciate a business statement.
