Mr. Bryan now terms the people "Democrats and Aristocrats" instead of "common people and plutocrats." ltoth classes seem to have moved up a peg. We think we would prefer being a "common people" to a "Democrat." Senator Vest's remark to the effect that a financial panic would return the Democrats to jtower has been widely quoted. The statement does not lack in pioUibility, providing the panic is severe, widespread and long continued enough, ltut it would 1 ju.t like Democratic luck to have the country go right on and prosper. The County ticket put up by the Kupublicaiis Tuesday was a clean cut one and so distributed throughout the county that there can be no possible kick coming' from any quarter on geo graphical lines. The qualifications of every nominee can not be question ed and a letter set of men to 1111 posi tions of trust couU not have been named. It is an excellent combina tion of prospective county officers and they will be elected by good round majorities at the election in Novcin ler. There was borne disappoint ments but no sore spots. The people of the I'hilippine Inlands are beginning to understand the great advantages of a settled government under the supervision of the United States and to realize how they have lieen mislead as to the purposes of the United States in seeking the pacitica tion of the islands Returns from the custom revenue of the archipelago show that for the last four months of the present year of receipts reached nearly 1,00(1,000 in gold; more than twice as much as they were for thc corresponding months of 1891), and a considerable increase over 1901. The editor of the Coldwatcr Courier states the political situation pat as follows: "The people of the state of Michigan were never more prosperous than at the present time, and before taking any step that will bring demo cratic times those who cast the ballot will think long and think wisely. Smokeless factories and empty dinner pails are not a pleasant contempla tion. Street corners crowded with idle men are in sad contrast to the busy throng who are exchanging the contents of well-lilled purses for arti cles that po to make a home happy, comfortable and contented. The sophistry contained in those same old promises cannot mislead . an intelli gent people twice in so short a time. In the view of the fact that thc trusts of free-trade England are more comprehensive, more extensive, and much older, and more general than those of the United States, the asser tions of Democrats that the reduc tion or addition of the tariff will kill trusts, is hardly to be considered good reasoning. The average Democrat is more or less insane over the tariff question. In spite of the plain teach ings of history which, in every in stance, show depression and disaster t the country whenever low-tariff schedules have been in force, and In spite of the very vivid picture of only six years ago under the Wilson low tariff law, thc Democracy is ready and anxious as ever to foist a free trade law upon the country. The free-trade malady Is a singular one. It is fortunate for the country that those believing In It are In a decided minority. Thc the f''"" f manufacturert' tiit-r nls and the In- manufacturert' materials and the In creasing bhare which such material form in the total imports, is the most remarkable feature of the foreign commerce of the United States in the fiscal year just ended. Manufactuers' ( materials form, in li02, nearly one-'. half of the total Importations and . show a remarkable Increase over pre- ceding years, while other classes of j imports show but a very slight in crease. Thc lUireau of Statistics distributes the imports into five great groups, namely: (1) Articles of food, and animals. (2) Articles in a crude condition which enter into t he var ious processes if domestic industry. (3) Articles wholly or partially manufactured for use as materials in the manufactures and mechanic arts. (4 ) Articles manufactured ready for consumption, and (") Articles of vol untary use, luxuries, etc. Combining the two classes of arti cles for use in manufacturing, those "in a crude condition" and those wholly or partially manufactured for use as materials In the manufactures and mechanic arts,'' It is found that the total value of importrtions lor use in manufacturing, which amounted in 1SH1 to JI7,,",71,.V1 were, in I'.MrJ, 41N,17t,(iI orpractically double those of They formed, in 11, .Y, 1 1 per cent of the total imports and, in 1(.M)2, 40 .'$ per cent of the total im ports. 'I his phenomenal growth be comes even inure striking when it is compared with the growth in imior- tation of all other articles than those for use in manufacturing. The table in the report of the chief of the bu reau of statistics which sets forth thc imports by years, ot the great groups above referred to, shows that the to tal value of "iuiportsother than man ufacturers' materials,"' amounted, in 1881, to $i:i:i.W7,44S and in l!'02 to 4S4,5.V),:!K) and formed, in 1881, m.',( per cent of the total imports and in UHX'i but f..4 per cent of the total im ports. Thus, while importations of manufacturers' materials have prac tically doubled from iss to lOirj, im portations of articles other than man ufacturers' materials have increased but about 12 per cent, Even these figures, however, do not indicate, in all cases" at least, the actual growth in manufacturers' ma terials localise of the fact that they are figures of values only and, in many cases, prices have so much fallen that the value figures of l!''2, when com pared with those of earlier periods, do not fully indicate the growth in quan tity imported. The report of the chief of the bureau of statistics gives in conjunction wit h t he table above referred to, another table showing the quantity of principal articles im jiortcd. It shows, for example, that while the value of raw silk imported iu 11MI2 is only '.lx times as much as in 18S0, the quantity is more than live times as much, The total importa tions of unmanufactured silk in isso amounted to 2.'2,2h pounds valued at I2.024, ;'.)'. while that of l!K2 was 14,2:14, S2ti pounds valued at l2.ti."l.",:i."il. The peace-loving 1) e m oc r a c y, which strenuously urged the country into war with Spain, continues its at tacks upon the army in one form or another. This time it is through the medium of its leader, Mr. Hryan, who says in his Commoner that I 'resident Roosevelt threw aside all restraint in his West l'oint speech, and said "in a fit of animal enthusiasm that a good soldier must not only Ikj willing to light; he must be anxious to fight '" In this statement, Mr. Hryan says the President revealed a "moral deform ity which must shock such of his friends as are not wholly carried away with the bloody and brutal gos pel of imperialism " War is war. It means fighting, and soldiers are en listed and trained to light. That the best way to promote peace is to be prepared for war does not signify that when war comes soldiers should not be anxious to yet into the thick of the fight A soldier who would go in to a battle the same as a machine, with no personal enthusiasm or quick ening ofthe heart-beat, would not le a typical American soldier: he would not le the kind of a soldier to carry the Hag to the front and plant it on the enemy's entrenchments; he would not lie the kind of a soldier Mr Hryan would doubtless have proved himself to be had he gotten into action. Thc President's remarks were addressed to soldiers and they were appropri ate. i.onk rifitHiiiii, n !. I'hotoerapher C C.

BASE BALL. nll i;upida t oon Are IouiIhk Attain Saturday. The local base ball managers were considerably worried last Saturday morning lecause the Greenville and Lansing clubs which were to play here failed to show upon the morning train as agreed. After considerable telephoning they were finally located and it was learned that they would be here on a later train in time for the game. They did come and after thc game was over thc managers were al most sorry they did come. It was a poor game, and was an casly one for Greenville with :hc assistance f the umpire Tibials. The score: Ii o o a 8 2 0 0 0 0-s Greenville ..0 4 Lansing .. ..0 0 Next Saturday the Dig Rapids col ored team is to jday Greenville again, and as there is always strife between these two club, and furthermore as they played a very close game a few weeks ago. it m anticipated this will be another eoniest worth witnessing.

Local theatre goers are to lie favor ed with an entirely new production of Jule Walters' famous comedy, "Side Tracked," at the Opera House Friday night. The only thing that will be recognized is the tramp, Horatio Xer xes Hooth, and like good wine, this character improves with age. Ihe best recommendation any tiiav can have is imitation and It is safe to say that "Side Tracked" is more widely imitated than any play in America'.
