AN INFAMOUS COMBINATION.
The most i in famous "combine" of the
day is the democratic press, which is
seeking to nable unscrupulous traders
to raise the price of all neccessaries of
life, and which is working disaster to the
trade of those honest merchants who are
not raising prices under the false pre
tense of "increased tariff duties."
If the falsehoods of the democratic
press obtained general credence there
would be a falling off of one-half in the
retail trade of our great stores in less
than one week. Every person of moder
ate means would be curtailing his expen
ses in antic'pation of tha "dreadful rise
in the price of all necessaries of life"
which the democratic press, almost uni
versally, falsely is predicting to influence
the November elections.
The Omaha World-Herald is figuring
some more om the "robber tariff bill.''
It relates that a dealer in Omaha was
compelled to raise the price of lamp
chimneys "such as the poor man uses''
from three f or a quarter to twenty cents
apiece, by the high tariff imposed by the
"McKinley bill." After he has run in a
lot of stuff about the oppression of the
poor man, he casually states that the
dealers have been buying their chimneys
at eight cents a dozen and that now the
taiiff is ten cents a dozen.
If that is the case, of course in selling
a chimney for 8 cents, or an advance of
1,200 per cent on the old price, he could
only have made 7J cents on a chimney
that cost him a cent and a half, or about
650 per cent profit. A tariff of 10 cents
a dozen would have added, had chim
neys been on the free list before, ten
twelfths of a cent to the cost of a chim
ney. Iiut the tariff isn't 10 cents a dozen
now. The senate Jinocked out that
clause and made it 00 per cent ad valo
rem. The late tariff was 45 percent ad
valorem. How much is tbrincreas? If
the 45 per cent ad valo em was added
to the cost price to make the 8 cents per
dozen that the retailer paid the cost was
ri cents per dozen. Add 00 per cent to
f A-cents for the present tariff and v.e

MR. RICHARDS' CAMPAIGN.
Mr. Richards carries on his canvass
for the governorship with a modesty and
dignity characteristic of the man. Re
ports from the various parts of the Ftute
which he has visited show that he has
everywhere popular respect and im
pressed the people s a man who could
be trusted to administer the affairs of
the state honestly, wisely and in accord
ance with the platform promises of his
His speeches are plain, straightfor
ward statements of the record and prin
ciples of the republican party ia the;r re
lation to the issues of the present ca.n
paiga. They are admirably adapted to
the situation. They refer, with a pride
which every western republican should
share, to what the party has done for the
west in the way of homestead laws, the
admiaistratiou of the land office, the in
crease of silver coinage, the admission of
new states, and the application of pro
tection to tho products of the farm.
They describe the developement of the
state for thirty years under an unbroken
succession of republican governors.
They emphasize the promises of the pre
sent platform with regard to the regula
tion of the railroads and provision for
In one respect Mr. Richards' speeches
are of more than partisan importance.
He renders a good seryice to men of all
parties in branding aB false the stories
of widespread depretsiou and impending
disaster which the leaders of other par
ties have scattered broadcast in the hope
of geting into office thereby. In com
batting these false but damaging asser
tions he does a service for which eyery
business man and farmer thould be
grateful, whoever their candidate for
goyeriior. The facts and figures which
he employs fully sustain his position and
the reputation of the state.
Mr. Richards represents in his life and
character the best citizenship of Nebras
ka. His campaign is a good index of
the sound and honorable administration
which might be expected of him as gov
Mr. Bryan had several pretended let
ters from eastern wholesale houses which
he read to prove that as a result of the
McKinley bill plush 6acques were going
to advance in price together with a few
other luxuries. 1 he deceit and hypocrisy
of the whele affair was plainly discerni
ble when he refused to give the name of
a single house from whom he pretended
to read. The facts doubtless are, that if
the letter? are genuine they are from the
importers and agents of foreign factories
whom republicans claim are the sufferers
from an American tariff. Another very
log letter was read showing clearly that
it had been written for campaign pur
poses by a professional hand, and yet in
the opening lines it was boldly asserted
that the "firm" had always been zealous
republicans, of the protective order until
this infamous McKinley bill had been
passed; but the horns and cloven hoofs
of democracy was shown before the let
ter had been finished when .this writer
who had always been a leading active re
publican remarked ;"that if Pennsylvania
went republican this year she willbebouglt
as she was two years ago." A likely remark-
indeed for a life long republican
to make especially when he was working
for the success of the ticket two years
ago, and knows that a state whose ma
jority almost reaches one hundred thou -sand
does net require Jmoney. Xo, no,
Mr. Bryan you can't catch the people
that way. Democratic deception is as
old as the party, and the people do not
take your statemerts without a thought;
and on investigation they will not bear
the light. Be square and meet the issues
fairly and honorably, and though you
will not be sent to congress, you are
yery prom'sing three-year-old fully in
line with your party, and in the course of
time may be elevated to an office in a
new democratic district.
The Niobrara Democrat speaks of
Boyd as the grand old Mormon saiDt.
Continuing the Democrat says: "If Jim
Boyd of Omaha with his 'barrel' and his
unblushing salacious record, is the best
the demoratic party has to offer the peo
ple, then the party should be buried out
of sight at the ballot box." And this
is all from a democratic paper.

little leather belting is imported in this
country, and this amount is not likely to
be increased much. The truth of the
matter ia that we defy foreign competi
tion. We have better machinery than
manufacturers in other countries have,
an-1 they cannot compete with us here.
"I, however look for a marked increase
in our business on account of the gener.tl
pro-perity which will be caused by the
McKinley law. It will stimulate iiiam:
factuiing here and lead to the erection
of new factories, and this will make n
greater demand for jur goods. For
instmice, I know of a steel manufacturer
in Scotland who has exported a consid
erable amount of his produce to the
Utited States. Under the new tariff, he
will be unable to do this, end he now
int nds to put up a mill lure. He
complain bitterley that some of his
Scotch workmen will loose their employ
mnf. This s true and it is sad, but as
for I, as an American, um concerned, it is
ovei balanced by my pleasure that a
number of my fellow countryman will
find work in his new mill here.
"A friend has argued with me that the
manufacturers will be benfited by the
new duties, but that the workingmen
will receive no addition to their wages.
I do not agree with this point of view.
An increased demand for goods means
an increased demand for men to make
them, and an increase in the demand
for labor is sure to bring about an in
crease in its remuneration."

A REMARKABLE FREE LIST.
New York Tribune.
The republican party has enacted the
McKinley bill after ten months of pro
found investigation and elaborate debate.
It undertakes to say that a wiser, braycr,
fairer revenue bill has never been pro
vided in all the history of the republic!
It undertakes to say that under the oper
ation of the naw tariff the American peo
ple will pav a smaller proportion of the
expenses of the government than ever
before. This conclusion will be forced
upon any air-minded man who takes the
trouble to examine it proyisions.
In the first place, a large portion of
the internal revenue taxation on tobacco
has been remitted, and all those annoy
ing special licenses for the sale of tobac
co have been abolished. The American
farmer and retailer are as free today to
sell their tobacco as their wheat.
In the next place, practically all direct
taxation, except the internal revenue
taxes on whisky and tobacco, have been
remitted to thel people. This has been
done by means of a remarkable enlarge
ment of the free list. It is practically
true to say that everything the like of
which is not or cannot be largely pro
duced.in this country has been placed
on the free list. A duty on this class of
articles is a revenue duty and is paid by
the consumer. In 'l is respect it
differs entirely from a protective duty,
which is often wholly and always large
ly paid by the importer. By its addition
to the free list, then, the republican party
has left in the people's pockets a sum
which last year amounted to more than
$05,000,000. and has opened our ports to
merchandise upon which the American
consumer has heretofore been paying a
tax which was last year imported to
the value of $365,400,000. This is
nearly 50 percent of the total importa
tions, and is 10 per cent greater than the
face importation provided in the iiills
bill. When it is considered that among
the foreign products transferred by the
republican party frcm the dutiable list
to the free list are such universally used
articles as sugar, molasses, needles, dried
currants, round or eolit strnw-matting,
sisal grass and manila tor m- in the
manufacture of binding twine, briids,
seeds, hemp, turpentine and jute, the im
portance of this legislation may b appreciated.
