Believing in the doctrine ot "equal rights i all, aud special priv ileges to none," we demand that Isi atious, national or stale, shall not be used to build up one interest or class ai tbe expense of another. 6ih. We belie m that this tnouey ol the coun'ry should bo kepi as much a. pos.ihlu in the hands ol the people, aud hence we demand that all revenue natioual, stale or county, shall be liiu led to the necessary expenses ol the government economically aud honestly administered. 7tb.

An article, in the last number of the Kcouoinisl, tut) organ of ihe protective tariff Ip)hu.iii:, iH so astonishing on lu iKMinl ot iu iinquHliHed abaiidonmeul of IIih slock aiguinpiits for prohibitive pi-oteeiion, tlmi it well deserves a lull pi'pKPiitHlinn In' lore western readers. Itpfoi'p quoting from Ihe article it will be useful to alate a few facts rela ting to the present tarifl on iron and Steele. That larifl is about 80 per cent, on Steele ruils, 4A per cent, on boiler iron, 1)5 to 40 per cent, on hoop iron,J2.r per cent, ou saws. 40 per cent. (ii nails, CO per rent, on bolts, 60 per cent, on flies, 100 per cent, ou iron or sieel beaiiiH anl from 2A lo 100 per cent ou wire. All who read or heard toe slump speeches on the republican side last year remember clearlv that the burden of tho appeal to voters was that the American woi kitigman could not com pute with KuglUh and that a reduction ol the tariff would inevitably reduce waes in this country. Harrowing pictures ot pauperized labor were drawn lo eccite the'patriotlc American, and General Harrison said that low prices were to be avoided sluoe they meant low wages. The tariff reloriuer replied that low prices and low wages did not by any means go together, but that on tbe contrary the more efficient aud produc nvo tbe labor the lower the cost of commodities and the higher tbe wages. The protectionist ridiculed Ibe position and called the reformer a theorist and a British hireling. Sow let us look at the latest argu ment ol the protective tariff league. The economist article has a text ud the text Is an interview with Colonel A.M. Shook, ol Tennessee, who has been iuveetigating Ihe irou nod steel tnauufacl tires in Europe. Colonel Shook is au officer of tbe protective tariff league aud is identified with tbe iron and steel association. Here are some of his views: I saw uo place in England or Wales where iron was being made as cheaply as at Birmingham, Ala. At uo place either io England or Wales were they putting coal ou the cars as cheaply as is now being done in Tennessee aud Alabama. The price of labor iu England has advanced iu some instances as bigb as S34 per cent, above one ear ago, and It is further stated that another advance f Id per cent. will be made io January. Wanes advancing from Id to 82 1-2 per cent, in free trade. England I How is it possible? It rather beats ns, and very much beats protected Fiance, pain aud Germany. These pauper cousins across the water have learned trick the lately striking laborers in Mr. Carnegie's mills would like to imitate. Ana American labor putting iron ou the cars more cheaply than the pauper labor iu Euglaud and Wales. If Ibe authority were not a member of the irou and steel association aud ol the league ho would certainly be British hireling and an impracticable visionary. But tbe Ecouomiat appl tuds the colonel's report aud carries it to conclusions. Its owu words are best Wages all over Europe are steadily rising. To-dav we are exporting to all parts of the globe the products of our facto ries. At the same time we have suc cessfully maintained the high level of American wages, intelligence, com biued wiib active home competition, has enabled ns to rival tbe products ol low wages in their own markets, and the day is now fast approaching wbeu the Und of the highest wages, the land in which workiiiguieu enjoy the high est privileges of citizenship the great est degree ot tne comlorls of lite will also be the land of cheapest production As a matter ot fact we are not ex porting iron articles very largely. Most of our exports are of tools, implements and locomotives, which, by reason ol American inventions, are more suitable lor tbo purposes ot several countries than European articles of the same class. Moreover, it is currently staled that these exports are sold abroad much cheaper I ban at borne, au ar rangement which looks like discriraina lion against our own consumers. Al that, however, may pass. The kernel of the Economist's article is tbe deser lion, without a regret, explanation or leave-taking, ot Ihe protectionist theory ot wages. When the Times last year took ex tracts from Mr. Schoeuhof s data to prove ibat the more intelligent and efficient labor ot America was more than able lo compete with any pauper labor, and really cost less than paaper labor, estimated or its proportion ol selling prices, fifty republican organs iu Kausus and Missouri declared the assertion ridiculous aud ou Its face im possible What will tbey say of the Economist? The laud ol highest wages uud greatest general romlort also the land of cheapest production. We have never been sanguine euough lo export that doctrine from an organ supported by the protective tariU league. There is nothing tuoro left for the larifl re former to say. The Economist does not, for al) its now labor theory, consent that the iron larifl shuM be removed or reduced. It has a new reason for the same old tariff: 'While the maintenance of our system will coutiuue to be expedient to pro lect us against industrial disasters abroad, it will be less and less needed to protect us agaiust their cheaper production." To protect u. To protect whom? Not labor because it cannot need pro tection when it can put iron on the cars with less cost than cau English and Welsh labor. It must be the mine, furnace) and mill owners. And to avoid the influence of industrial disas ters in countries where wages are rising we must keep tbe 46 per cent aud upward tariff. That is, our own people must pay fur their irou and steel whatever the associatiou can by shutting dowu furnaces and limiting production compel us to pay. The Economist in another editorial says: "With a senate in lull sympathy witb such measures and a prpsideut who will gladly sign a bill prepared and passed by such legislators, the outlook is most favorable lor speedy . tariff legislation thai will bu .'uncompro misingly protective.' " rucoinpi'oiiiisiiigly protective tor the iron ami steel association of which Chairman McKinlev ol the ways and means committee is Ibe most obedient servant. Hero is enough to keep western (aimers and business men digesiiug until the next congieasiou.d elections, for the chance of injury from European disasters our people arc lo keep right ou paying several hundred millions ot dollars annually in bounties which coulessedly do not help labor.

The Central West l'resbyteriau. r HEIGHTS AND FARMERS- I Frcui ll.e Chisago Times. a book recently published, Profs. In Jeuks aud Ely preseut very elaborate and careful estimates or tbe cost ol bauliug freight iu wagons on country roads. The geueral results of these estimates is presented Iu tbe brief but pregnant statement that al present the average cost of bauliug 100 bushels ol grain one mile is 60 ceuts. I u other words, sixty cents is tbe cost oi bauliug three ions one mile, it there Is no mistake iu the estimate, it Is something for the farmer to think about. The average cost ot hauling 100 bushels of wheat one mile by rail la said to be one-third of a cent. From these statements taken together it appears lhat it costs 180 times as much to haul a given quantity ot wbeat from tbe farm to the railway station as it does lo haul it ihe same distance by rail. To state it another way, it oosts as much to haul a crop of wbeat a dig tauce of ten miles from the farm lo the station as It does to haul tbe same crop 1,800 miles from the station to tbe market. '1 be average distance from the farm lo the statiou may not be teu miles, suppose it to be half lhat dis tauce, or live miles It is tbeu lo be said that tbe average haul by rail to market is not 1,800 miles, but less thau bulf lhat distauce. Tbe conclusion re mains that it coals fullv as much to haul the crop to tbe statiou as it does to haul it iioui tho station to the market. The lesson which tbe farmer bas to learu from all this is obvious. His worst enemy, so far as transportation is concerned, is not Ihe railroad, but tbe wagou road. Aud what be most needs lo do is to tei abont the business of cheapening transportation from tbe tarui to the railway. 11 Is right aud proper, ol course, to resist extortion where It is practiced by railway aud elevator companies, but the farmor should not permit himself lo become so much absorbed in that business as to neglect the other business, where there is an lucomparauiy more pruuuaiug field for economy. A bushel of wheat la hauled by rail 1,6(1"' miles lor 6 cents. That is pretty cheap, and the farmer cannot expect mu h cheaper railway service very soon, it costs him five cents to haul the bushel about eiht miles by wagou. it the cosi ol Ibe wagou haul were re duced lo one cent per bushel it would still be lliirty-six limes the cost oi tbe haul by rail for the same distance, and the farmer would be ahead lour ceuts a bushel.
