They All Prayed to One God.
A Republican. a Democrat and a.
l’ronihitionist went up to the temple
to pray. The Republican stood, and
with his face upward; prayed: “0
Lord, we thank Thee that we are not
like other men. “'0 thank Theo first
‘of all for the pure, incorruptible,
holy Republican party. “'0 thank
IThee that all Democrats are liars.
and all prohibitionists are fools, and
that we alone are good. We have no
special favors to ask, knowing that to
be consistent Thou must of necessity
‘be with us”
The Democrat prayed thus: "0
Lord. Thou knowest that we do not
often bother Thee with our prayers.
Yet there be a few things wherein
Thou canst be of great use to us.
Bless Clewland, 0 Lord. but curse
his civil service. Bless the Prohibi—l
tionist in the North, but damn him:
in the South. Bless Minnesota and‘
the little Norwegian. Knute Nelson,l
but curse Pennsylvania and that. trnis
tor, Sam Randall. Bless Brother‘
Browne in Walla, but confound that’
Little Giant Mills, who is deep and‘
designing. The rest, 0 Lord, you
can safely trust to our care-”
"The Prohxbitiomst. fell on his
knees, as usual, and prayed: “O
Lord. we have done alight else but
pray. 10 these many years. Now we
are going to fight, and do Thou, 0
Lord,'be pleased to stand by and see
.fair play, while we show these l’hnr~

They Wouldn‘t if They Could Com
prehend the Situation.
A dispatch from Tacoma says that
politics are at fever heat in Washing
ton Territory; that Voorhees is
stumping and making speeches in
every town and csoss roads in the
country, and that the Democrats are
straining every nerve to carry the
Territory, though with little prospect
of success. _ _ _ _
The only snrpise is that there are
any Democrats in that Territory, in
View of the action of the Democratic
House of Representatives upon the
question of admission. That body
has stood squarely in front of the
undoubted right of Washington Ter
ritoro to become n State, and always
will occupy that position so long as
there is a probability of its being a
Republican State utter its admission
to the Union. No showing which the
people of that section can make is of
any avail against the obstinacy of the
Confederate brigadler element in
Congress, which is determined that
the solid South shall not have its po
litical influence lessened by the nd~
mission of new Northern States.
If there are any two places where
Democrats should be scarce—beside
heaven—~those two are Washington
and Dakota ‘l‘ei‘ritories. Ano man
in either of those two populous nnd
flourishing Territories who supports
the Democratic party votes directly.
for keeping his Territory out of the
Union, and for perpetuating the
period of pupilage under territorial
government. They should know this
without telling, and knowing it,
lDemocratic votes should be very few.

The "Encyclopzedia Britannica,”l
vol. XXIII. published in 1888, con-:
tains a sketch of the United States, i
in which is included a section devot- 3
ed to manufactures. The record is
tame enough until the protective era
is reached, and then the British pub
lication expresses itself thus: "The
decade 1850—’70 was marked by a
stupendous advance in the mechan—
ical enterprises.” This is disinteres
ted testimony, and at variance with
that of free traders who te‘l us that
the development of manufacturing
enterprises is impossible under a
protective system.
The United States is the grandost
and most prosperous nation on the
face of the globe. It is made so by
the policy of protection. which
taught the people that in) section of
the United States could benefit with
out every other sectiun deriving an
advantage. Free trzulvrs. on the
other hand, have invariably appealed
t 0 sectional jealousies. Had they
continued to maintain thvir hold on
affairs the countfi' would have been
in the same slough of industrial (le~
spond out. of which it. was lifted by

'l‘he silk badges with which the
democrats have flooded the country:~
and which bear a picture of Cleves
land, woven in them, are manufac
tured by W. H. Grant, Taleshill,
Coventry, England. They were or
dered by the Cobden Free Trade
Club of England, and sent over for
distribution by the free trade clubs
of this country. It is a most. appro—
priate exemplitication of the demu~
cratic free trade idea that the indus
tries of England should he favored
to the detriment of American indus
tries. The democracy wears a prop
er badge—an English badge.
The republican silk badges. into
which are woven a picture of the
American flag, are manufactured at
Logan Silk Mills, Auburn, New
York. They are made of American}
silk. on American looms, and repre- l

This is an incident only, but it ex~
hibits most plainly and practically,
just as “straws tell which way the
wind blows," the difference between
the two parties as to their politics
concerning the interests of the work
ing people—and all other people—
of this country.
The democrats declare themselves
by lip service. the republicans by
practice. The democratic clubs pro‘
vide their party a badge made of
English material by English work
men; the republican clubs provide a
badge made of American material by
American workmen: _
The proprietor of the Logan Silk
Mills ofi'ers a roward of SIOOO for any
silk badge now in use, made in this
country, with the portrait of Presi~
dent Cleveland woven into it. All
the democratic badges bearing the
picture of'Mr. Cleveland woven into
them are made in England, and on
the return edge is seen the name and
location of the English weaver. The
democrats are remarkably consist~
ent in this matter and are wearing
the foreign made emblem of their
l faith.— Oregonian.
Very Sensible Indeed.
The following telegram by the
Associated press is suggestive and
very sensible. The Genesee confer
ence is one of the oldest and most
influential conferences of the Metho
dist Episcopal church:
Rochester, Oct. 9.—After a heated
debate today the Genesee confer~
ence adopted resolutions disapprov—
ing of high license by a vote of 131
to 58, many being absent and not
voting. Strong resolutions pledging
the conference to abstain from po.
litical action of any kind or influenc
ing members of churches in political
action were adopted unanimously.
It is difficult to imagine the Mary
land widow’s feelings, who. having
set a bear trap at her smoke-house
door, found her first catch to be the
very person who was trying to catch
her. The fellow had been courting
her for some limo. Had doubtless
spent all his snare cash in trying to
make a favorable impression. The
widow was probably like most oth
ers, fickle and frivolous. and had
just rejected his suit. But all this
did not justify him in stealing the
widow’s pork, and both parties must
ihave felt very muab embarrassed
when they met.

No actor was ever cast in a harder
part that was one Harry Fisher at
Jersey City two weeks since. He
left the bedside of his (lying wife
(because, being poor, ho had no
choice.) to lay the principal part in
a bit of bulgoouery in which he was
cast as first bufl'oon. For two mortal
hours he faced a roaring crowd.
stimulating their laughter while his
own heart strin '5 tugged and bled.
He finished at blength and hurried
home, but not until his wife had
died—so there was. cold welcome
for him there. People must be
amused in these exciting days,
though sometimes at. what a cost!

of the organization was for mutual

Do those enthusiasts, who refer
to the poor of our large cities, and
ask why do such conditions exist if
protection is such a boon, expect to
improve matters by removing protec

and much more interesting and
higher question was. “Have the peo—

The latter is a question of the gen-3

upon which an American public is
peculiarly sensitive. but the latter
question arouses a deeper concern
because it is more plainly seen and
felt to involve in a menacing inan

namely: the right of a pen; 0 to

right of a people to a substantial and

fundamental principles in the whole
structure of American free institu~

every liberty~loving heart, and for
which has been waged every strug

liberty in the history of mankind.

Frank Hurd, the Ohio free trader,
wlmm his constituents snowed under
when he attempted to he ru-elected
to Congrvss four years ago, has been
trying to make 9. freo- lrudo urgunwut
from the condition of Ireland—
wborenpon Patrick Ford's New York
Irish World tears him all up into
strip. as witnnss the following from
its columns:
Mr. Hurd appeals to the statistics V l
of Irish trade. Ireland sends outli
more and brings in more than she !
used to do. and therefore she is pres- 1
paring! This increased trade is 1
merely an index of the country’s
deepening poverty. It is the export t
of food and raw materials—chiefly 1
the former—to pay for everything 1
else the Irish people use. He ap
Hulls to wrges as proving his case. =
equotes Mr. O'Connell as saying I
wages ranged from four pence to
eighteen pence aday in 1844 and that
now they ran a from eight to ten
shillings a weeg. From this we are
to infer that the condition of Irish 3
labor has greatly improved. Now .
remember that Mr. Hard is not com- I
paring two periods, one of which was ‘
under protection and the other under ‘
free trade. but two free trade periods. :
In 1814 Ireland had nothing protect
ed but her agriculture. Her mamh
factures had been ruined by free
trade with England. The era of
wholesale emigration had not set in. i
The labor market was overstocked
terribly and employment was not to
be had. With a pulation of at
least nine millions Sgpending on the
. land alone wages were wretched
‘ enough. But in our day some relief
has come by the transfer of more
than half the people to other coun
tries. Unly in this sense can we say
that free trade has raised wages in
Ireland: that it has driven out some
five millions of the people and in
this fine way reduced the competition
of those who are left. This is the
cause that the Irish laborer actually
can earn $2.50 a week!
Mr. Hurd makes a quotation from
a “distinguished observer,” which he
says is borne out by statistical tables
to which he has access. The state
ments of this distinguished observer, l
whoever he is, are a tissue of fic
tion, devised no doubt to justify the
continuance of British rule in Ire--
land. Who is this distinguished ob
server whose distinction is so great
that it is not worth while to mention
his name? It is not either of the
two professors of political economy,
Umrnes and ome Leslie, who
taught in Irish colleges and saw lre~
l land for themselves. They have
limited in the statement that they
found no substantial improvement ini

who viaitc-«l Ireland last year. looked
at her condition through the eyes of

poverty of the country “is unequcs

whose more word is to be taken in
this mutton although he contradicts
the consontaneous testimony of every
inteliigent man. American, English
or French, who has looked at. Ireland
with‘his own eyes.‘ “ -- ‘
All that Ireland needs, Mr. Hurd
says. is a better land system. Will
Mr. Hurd tell us on what free trade
principle he will amend the Irish
land system? Is Irish land an ex«
eeption to the principle that “a man
may do what he will with his own ‘2”
Is .\lr. Ilurd prepared to throw that
principle overboard in this case but
to insist that it applies in every
other? He speaks of the evils of ab~
sentee landlords. “'hat would he
and free trade do with them? Would}
he force them to reside in Ireland if‘
they did not wish to? Does he know
lat what pains free trade economists
;have been to prove that. absenteeism
is rather a benefit than a hurt. being]
driven to that by the necessities of'
the free trade theorof? \t ould he
force them to sell their lands to the
actual cultivator-s? On what princi
ple admitted by free traders would
he‘do any one of these things?
No solution of thel‘tish land ques~
tion would cure Ireland’s poverty.

One Dollar 8. Day-
The Indianapolis Sentinel still ad
deres to its assertion that General
Harrison said a dollar a day was
enough for a working—man. and
every once in a while it announces
that it is ready with its preof;but
somehow the proof is not forthcom
To try and settle this question
Harry S. New, one of the proprietors
of tho Journal. has tendered to
William English, the Democratic
candidate for the Vice—Presidency in
1880. a certified check for S2OOO, with
instructions to pay it over to any
mart y or parties who shall establish
‘in a judiciously conducted examina-‘
tion that General Harrison, during
the railroad strike of 1877, or at any
other time. said that “one dollara
day is enough for the workingmen.”
By the terms of the challenge the
matter shall he submitted to Napo
loan 1). Taylor, Democratic Judge of
Supeiior Cutll‘t of Marion county,
and under his direction, under the
rule-s of and procedure of his conrtfi
evidence shall he submitted to a jury
of tu‘elve Democratic freeholders of
Marion county. Mr. English has de—
clined to act as custodian in the mat
ter. The Journal people state that
the money will be tendered to Jos
eph E. McDonald as custodian on
[ hi§_retu_rn ‘to the-city. .. ‘
Now if the Indianapolis democratsl
can prove their assertion they have 3“
chance. They cannot object to the;
tribunal named. as it is to consiat of %
a democratic J udgo and twelve claim 1
ocrntic 'urora of Marion county, in
which I’ndinnnpolis is situated. It
seems to have come down now to a
question of "put up or shut. up,” and
wolhink it will be “shut up.”
