After the history and experiences of the past four years we take it that there are not many Republicans who will not continue that support. Four years ago the country was en joying an unprecedented degree of business and Industrial prosperity. More men were at work in factories and at better wages than in any pre vious year. Our exports of agricul tural, as well as of other products, were the largest in the history of the country, and good prices were obtain able for almost every product of the farm and of the factory. The delusive promise was made of till lietter times if we would abandon the old Republican policy of protec tion and adopt the Democratic policy of free trade. We made the :peri raent to our sorrow and ha to bad a long period of business depression as a result. The same men who were then advo atin free trade and prosperity are qow promising prosperity If we will Adopt their free silver notions. They were all wrong four years ago. They are no nearer right now. Notwithstanding the confused and uncertain conditions that prevailed sarly in the campaign there is every indication now of a sweeping Ue pub lican victory. All that is necessary to make sure of this is to get out the full Republican vote. At the polls on election day stamp or mark an (X) uuder the Republican vignette, and then pass your ticket to the election inspector. If you want to vote the straight Republican ticket this is all you need to do, so far as your own vote is concerned. Having ione this early in the day see that your Republican neighbors vote and thus have your share of the triumph of McKinley, Protection, Re Prosperity. IN ARKANSAS. rh Lasoo of Her Election the Nam aa that la Malue. Previous to the Vermont and Maine elections the free silver forces predicted a reduction of the Republican majori ties below those of former years and some of the more sanguine of them ex pected a fusion majority in the latter state. It was generally said that if the Republican plurality went above 25, D00 in Vermont or above 18,000 in Maine it would furnish a pretty strong indication of Republican success in the ;ountry ut large in November. The Republican plurality actually exceeded 10,000 In Vermont and approached 50, 300 In Maine, Iwing in both cases the largest ever obtained since the organ ization of the party. Then the silver men said that they tiad expected nothing from New En gland, which was tied to the gold standard, but that the south and west would offset that by tremendous Dem ocratic and fusion majorities. The election in Arkansas was pointed to as nstration of this. . the retut-.. u the September election in that st.ttv; are now in and they show the following comparative results: l9i 1X94 1896 Democrat 15 7I,89 71,045 Republican :i:i.(i44 1W.0H5 84,410 Populist :tl.l 17 24.641 11.280 Prohibition 1.310 I, Ml 1,043 Total r.0.1W IM.m 110.978 Democratic plurality 50.471 48,821 46,234 It apiK-ars from these figures that more than half of the Populist vote of 1894 either stayed at home or else was absorbed by the Democrats, and even then the plurality of the latter was l,58y less than it was two years ago, and that was a year of sweeping Re publican success. So far as these figures mean anything they convey the same lesson as the Vermont nnd Maine elections did. The Democrats are staying at home and the Republicans are coming out and voting. If the same thing holds true in Mhhi gan there will be no limit to her plu rality for McKinley. With me protection is a conviction, oota theory. 1 believe it and I warmly advocate it, because enveloped in it are my country's highest development and Ijreatest prosperity; out of it come the greatest gains to the people, the great ;st comfort to the masses, the widest encouragement for manly aspirations, the best and largest reward for honest ifforts, and a dignifying and elevating Mtizen.ship, upon which the safety and purity and permanency of our political system depend.

Bad for tha Maanfaetarora aa It la tot tba Flockmaatera Paaaod la Eaflaad'a Interest Largely Increased Import of Woolen Goods. This paper has' already published statistics shoeing thedis. trout effect of the Wilson tarifi on the wool rais ing industry in this country. The effect upon the manufactory of woolen and worsted goods has been almost equally destructive, so that there is no compensating benefit. The farmer loses the sale of his wool, and is also losing the sale of his farm products that would come from the employment of hands in the woolen mills. The imports of woolen cloth for the year 18U4, the last year under the Mc Kinley tariff, were 7,809,907 pounds, valued at 87,010,291. In 1895, the first year under the Wilson tariff, they were 40,070,148 pounds, valued at 825,281,068. In woolen dress goods the value of im portations in 1894 was 88,647,233, and in 1895 it was 822,549,485. The value of imports of woolen manufactures of all classes for the calendar years named was as follows, the first four years being under the McKinley tariff, and the last under the Wilson tariff: Year. Value. 1HV1 f:4.oio.45 IWi 37.MV445 IM3.... 3u.rn.soo IHVM 14.853.215 1895 60,254,341 The large importations have had the effect of paralyzing the manufacture of woolen goods in the f 'tories, both east and west, in this country. The following' from the Keene, N. II., Sen tinel, is a fair statement of the condi tions that exist in all the woolen goods districts of the country. It is part of an editorial under the caption of "Si lent Looms." "No important business has been so disastrously affected by the Wilson Gorman tariff law as the manufacture of woolens. All over the country the experience seems to be the same in ability to cope with English competi tion and the consequent closing of the mills in whole or in part, or, if the mills keep up their production, the profits are miserably small. Our mills in Cheshire county have suffered with the rest. Mill owners have lost profits, laborers have lost work and storekeep ers have lost trade. Hinsdale and Ashuelot have been struck the hardest blow. They were lively places a year ago. Now their principal industrial establishments are closed and the towns are quiet beyond precedent. Everybody in the two villages feels the hard times and almost everybody curses the Wilson law. The loss in labor and wages owing to the depres sion in the woolen business is astonish ingly large. In good times, say in the fall of 1892, the woolen mills of the of the county were employing 1,200 hands and paying out In wages about 830.0(H) a month. At present the same mills are employing not quite 400 hands and are paying in wages be tween 811,000 and 812,000 a month. In other words, the number of labor ers employed and the aggregate amount of wages have been reduced two-thirds." Meantime, the tariff measure, which has paralyzed the American woolen in dustry, has had a revivifying effect on the Dradford manufacturing district in England. Here is what the London correspondent of the New York Trib une has to say on the subject: "The Ameriean tariff was changed in 18.R, and the I trad ford trade with the United States in men's coatings, which had amounted to 80,500,000 in 18S9, dropped to $2,500,000 in 1891, and after a temporary revival during the next two years fell again to 81,300,000 In 1894. In like manner the exports of stuff goods, which had averaged 86,000, 000, in 1890, sank to the low level of 82,200,000 in 1894. The old and the new industries of Itradford suffered alike from the McKinley tariff, which largely increased the duties on stuff goods and coatings. It was a period of profound gloom for the entire district. The reaction came when the duties on goods for the American market were reduced about one-half in the Wilson tariff. A well-informed specialist, whose figures I take from an exhaust ive review of the Itradford trade pub lished in the London Times, states that the exports of coating? to the United States rose from 31,275,620 for the year ended Sept. 30, J'94, to 86,575, 052 in 1895 at a corresponding date. This increase of nearly r00 per cent re veals the full effect of the Wilson tariff during the first year when it was in oper ation. The export of stuff goods during the same period ran up from 82,200,000 to 83,375,000. On the basis of the con sular statistics for the year ended Dec. 30, 1893, the results of the repeal of the McKinley tariff may be enlarged con siderably. The export of worsted coatings to the United States was 88,501,228; that of stuff goods, 89,748, 527. The entire Itradford trade with the United States during 1895 ran up from 88,215,234 to 827,745,090." An exultant English correspondent, referring to some of the figures, says: "Under the Republican tariff Itrad ford exported worsteds worth 82,200, 000 to the United States. Under the Wilson tariff last year Itradford exported 88,375,000 of worsteds to the United States. Itradford has 80,175,000 in pocket that she would not have had if Prof. Wilson were not a statesman. Hurrah for Itradford! Hurrah for I'rofessor Wilson! And damn the United States!" Do the farmers and manufacturers of Michigan want four years more of the Wilson tariff? The revolutions which may take place in the comparative value of gold and silver will be changes in the state of the latter, rather than in that of the former. Hamilton.

OUR STANDARD DEAflEflS. t TO For President and Vice-President. M'KINLEY AND HOBART. For Governor. HAZEN S. PINGREE. The present mayor of Detroit and Republican candidate for governor, Hazon S. Pingree, was bom at Den mark, Me., August 30, 1840, the fourth child of Jasper and Adeline Pingree. His first American forefather was Moses Pingree. who emigrated from England in IGto, and settled in Ips wich, Mass., where his descendants continued to reside for more than 140 years. Many of the family have been distinguished in colonial and national history; prominent among the in Sam uel Everett Pingree, governor of Ver mont, 18S4-80. Jasper Piugree was a farmer ami resided at Denmark. Me , from the time of his birth in 1800 until 1871, going then to Detroit, Mich., where he died in 1882. The son resided with his parents until 14 years of age, when he went to Saco, Me,, and secured employment in a cotton factory. In 1800 lie went to Hopkinton, Mass., and secured employ ment in a shoe factory. Here he learned the trade of cutter at which he worked until August 1, 1802, when he enlisted as a private in Company I', First Massachusetts regiment of Heavy Artillery, for the unexpired three years' term of the regiment. When the regi ment whs mustered out at the end of the term, he re-enlisted on the battle field for three years more, or during the war. With the regiment he partic ipated in the second battle of Bull Ruu, the battles of Fredericksburg Road, Harris Farm aud Spottsylvania Court Hoii.se. Colli Harbor. North Anne and South Anne. At the battle of Spott sylvania Court House his regiment Opened the engagement aud killed 122 men anil wounded 308. On May 2. 1801, Mr. Pingree, with a number of his comrades, while reeon noitering, were captured by a squad of Mosby's men. As prisoners of war they were brought before that olliccr, who exchanged his entire suit of clothes with Pingree, but afterward ?ave back the coat, remarking that his men might shoot him for a "Yank." After his capture he was confined for dearly live months at Andersonville stockade, Salisbury, N. C, and Milieu, Ua. At the latter place, in November. ISO!, he was exchanged, rejoined his regiment in front of Petersburg and soon after took part in the expedition to the Weldon railroad, and in the bat tles of Itoydton Road, Petersburg, Sailor's Creek, Farnsville ami Appo .natox Court House. Mr. Pingree was mustered out of ser vice in August, 180,". and shortly after ivent to Detroit. Mich Here for a time he was employed in the boot and ihoe factory of H. P. Itahlwin Jk. Co Deciding to embark in business for aimsclf, in December, is 86, wilh C. II smith, he purchased a small bout and shoe factory, the entire capital repre sented by the firm of Pingree Xr Smith, ,vhen established, being but 81,300. The first year they employed but eight xtsoiis and the value of their produc .ion reached only 820,000. Increasing justness compelled their removal to arger quarters, and in time they se rtircd and maintained their position as .he most extensive boot and sluo man ifaeturers in the west, and their factory excelled by but one or two in the Jnited States. Over 7(M) persons are jniploj'ed and the value of their annual roducts amounts to about 81 .000,000. From the beginning of this enter prise Mr. Pingree has had the general niMrvlsion of the entire establishment. His' success has been the result of hard .vork and good management. In social .jfe he. is large-hearted aud generous, i faithful friend and good citizen. He las confined his energies almost solely jo the advancement of his business, jut has ever evinced a commendable jublic spirit and a willingness to do his lull share to promote all public pro jects. Mayor Pingree has in his possession it his Detroit residence three old mus tets. one of which was carried by his freat grandfather in the Revolutionary ,var. another by his grandfather in the nar of 1812. and the third by himself li the war of the Rebellion Mr. Pingree was elected mayor of Oetrolt In 1889 and is now serving his fourth term in that office .
