A VANISHING PARTY.
rZE TRADE DEMOCRATS GROWING BEAUTIFULLY LESS. Oaaga of Views Shown by Southern News paper Dmmnd For Protection Lltera- tmro Btltpu of the FopocraU Still 0tlck to Silver. The Louisville Courier-Journal an axmnces with considerable satisfaction ttat the Popocrata by which it means the Bryan Democrats are-' rapidly go fag oyer to protection. It instances the accent protection votes of six Popocratio United States senators; and adds that fibe drift toward the advocacy of high tariff is not exclusively in the senate. 2fc is seen in Kentucky, where the Popo enrats are seeking subsidies on hemp and ther articles. "But a more remarkable and pronounced demonstration," the Courier-Journal adds, ' 'is to be found fa the silverite press of the south and west." It . then quotes the reports of the American Protective Tariff league, "which show a large increase in the aumber of newspapers which now take the league's literature. Five years ago, when the national democratic conven 1 tion adopted a tariff for revenue only plank, its advocacy was a matter of course, and offers of tariff literature by the league "were replied to in thou ands of instances by bitter denuncia- , tion and epithets, but recently somo 3,000 favorable answers to the league's circulars have been received, a very large proportion of them from newspa pers that were formerly orthodox in their democracy. The change noted was greatest in the south. In Alabama 16 Democratic and 5 independents request d the league's publications; in Arkan sas 12 Democratic and 4 independents; . to Florida, 7 and 4; in Kentucky, 17 Democratic; in Maryland, 5; in Mis sissippi, 17 Democratio and 5 independ ents;: in - Missouri, 89 and 9; in North Carolina, 0 and 6; in South Carolina, J Popocrat and 8 neutrals ; in Tennes see, 12 Popocrats and 6 independents; in Texas, 83 and 13; in Virginia, 10 and 2. Secretary Wakeman of the league .says that the vast majority of these pa pers openly proclaim that they are for free silver and protection. " The satisfaction of Mr. Watterson's wti-noi" fttroi" tha rnlnnce rt ln TVinnrrnf a m Mr - - - - ---j - - w to what he calls the heresy of protection is the fact that, from his standpoint, it i&kns them farther away from the Dem ocratio party and leaves the faithful i&m. who train with him end Grover Cleveland with an undisputed claim to lie the-, genuine Democracy. "The Na tional Democracy," says The Courier Journal,' "alone represents the nreat is sue of frectrade, to which nil countries aoust inevitably come. " The claim of the National Democracy to represent tree trade may be allowed, but it must So admitted that the representation is Jlfcumg to. m very 6man. tho party, excluding what The Courier-Journal calls the Popocrats, is becoming small Eiy degrees and beautifully less. At the rate it is dwindling there won't be much left of it in the next presidential campaign but a vanishing point. It may be true that all countries will ultimately como to free trade in the millennium but nt present tho progress 'nv-tj&at. direction. is Jiko that of the frog . Jinc or Ilia well Jt gets up two steps and tumbles down three. Within the jast few years all the leading nations 'jxcept Great Britain have increased and strengthened their protective sys tems, and in England thero is a strong garty which is demanding protection lor agricultural products in order that the - British isles may becoino self sup porting in the matter of food. Tho growth of the protection senti ment in tho southern states cf this union ! Is veatifjiiig. Although it is largc iamong those who are tinctured with the iace silver heresy It is none the less welcome, for protective legislation just aX this present moment is a possibility, urbile free silver legislation is not. Tho Jbrnier is a practical issue, in the cf iectuation of which tho Popocrats can greatly aid, wbilo the latter is merely a theory. Minneapolis Tribune. Will'M.

PROTECT OUR LABOR. AMERICAN WAGES TAKEN ACROS3 THE CANADIAN BORDER. Hon. John D. Cor 11m Suggests m Remedy, Fifty Thousand Canadian Compete With Oar Artisan Add Nothing; to Oar Pros perity. It is claimed that the protective tariff aids the wage earner in our country. It certainly protects the capitalist, manu facturer and producer. The laborer without capital needs equal, if not greater, protection. The following amendment to the Dincley tariff has been submitted by lion. John B. Corliss of Michigan. lie claims that it will prevent upward of 50,000 ablebodied artisans from annual ly entering the United States and en gaging in competition with American workmen in all the avenues of labor, who now annually come with no inten tion of adopting this country as their home and who take the fruits of from three to six months' labor to their homes in foreign lands. Should we not extend this protection to the laboring people now in idleness? Amend II. R. 879 by adding thereto tho fol lowlns sections: Section 28. It shall hereafter be unlawful for any malo alien over 10 years of age, who re sides or retains his' home in a foreign country, to come into the United States for the purpose of engaging in any mechanical trade or man ual labor for wages or salary, unless such alien hns in good faith made declaration be fore the proper Inspection of the bureau of Immigration of his intention to become a per manent resident or citizen of the United States. Provided, That the provisions of this act shall not apply to aliens residing contigu ous to and within a distance of two miles from the border line, nor to the employment of sail ors, deckhands or other employees of vessels or railroad trainbands, whose duties require them to pass over the frontier to reach the termini of their runs. Section 29. That any violation of tho pre ceding section by any alien shall be doomed a misdemeanor and any persons convicted of a violation thereof shall be deported to the country whence they came. In a speech made in the house of rep resentatives on May 19, 1896, Congress man Corliss said, the house then con sidering the immigration laws of the United States: "This measure is intended as a pro tection to American labor. "It seeks to preserve the fruits of our labor for those who carry the burdens of American institutions and stand ready to defend the honor of the nation. "It does not affect any man, woman or child who now lives in this country, nor does it prevent any person from seeking and securing a home on Amer ican soil and enjoying the blessings and advantages of the labor markets of this country. "It is estimated that from 60,000 to 100,000 human beings every year leave their homes and families in foreign countries and come to tho United States with no intention of making this coun try their permanent 'home, and engage in competition with our laboring men during the most active business periods and building seasons in all the avenues of labor, and at tho cud of tho season or prosperous period return to their for eign homes, and thero spend with their families tho fruits of American labor." This class of competition with Amer ican labor is not confined to the sub jects of Canada. They come from Italy, Austria, Hungary and other foreign countries. They bring with them noth ing but physical force, capable of per forming work upon the low standard of other countries, and prey upon the la bor markets until they havo accumu lated a goodly earn for a laboring man I in a foreign country, r.ud return to their homes and families abroad. While here tbey add nothing to tho value, prosper ity, progress or genius of the people of tbi3 nation. In advocating this mcasuro we desire to iijcst emphatically disclaim any in tention to prevent any capable, honest, industrious, law nLiding person from seeking a homo o:s American soil and obtaining tho blpssinss nd advantages of this country for himself und Li3 fam ily, but wo do object to the competition of transient labor that enriches itself at the expense of our labor, which it cheapens and degrades, while taking away from the prosperity of our coun try. . .

Preceded by a biography of the great ex plorer, and copious extracts from Naneen'a l "First Trip Across Greenland," also an ac count, by lTlnd Astrup, of 'A Journey Across Northern Greenland" with Lieut It, E. Peary, U. S. N., followed by a brief bis tory of the principal "Earlier Tolar Explor ations," etc Profusely Illustrated. Na tional Publishing Co., Chicago, 111. As indicated on the title page, the volume opens with an appreciative and Intensely Interesting biography of Dr. Nansen, who, though less than thirty-six years of age, Is universally recognized as by far the most successful Arctic explorer the world has ever seen. Li la ancestry for almost three hundred years Is traced. The boyhood of the now famous man is described In the most fascinating manner. , Then we see him as a young man, foremost In all the sports requiring great physical exertion. But the centre of interest Is In the great Fram" expedition. Here the reader i3 told how this wonderful ship was built; of Its voyage to the North; how It was frozen into the ice. Then came the great 6ledge ex pedition of Nansen and Johansen, which occupied fifteen months, and in which they reached a latitude of 88 deg. 14 mln.-a point much further north than had ever been reached by man. The return voyage of the "Fram" Is also fully described. In all parts of the civilized world Dr. Nansen Is the hero of the hour. Ills won derful success has brought him the fame It deserves. This volume not only tells what the masses of the people want to know about him, and what be has accomplished, but It also traces the history of the work in which he was so successful, from the earliest peri od of which there is either record or tradi tion down to the present hour, thus really forming a cyclopedia of Arctic exploration. This work contains over 100 pages, In one volume, and has more than 100 fine illustra tions, Is printed from clear and opto type upon excellent paper, and is bound In dur able and attractive styles.
