WORKINp AT "THE LOWtST
WAGES AND PROFITS."
The jjrent error with inoet Anuri
can 8tuilent8 in considering the ta
riff from the Htaiidnnitit f history
in that they do nut n haik far
enough. For the last thirty year
the ijuestion ha.-t nut Imvii dcUiteil
by the free traders in the hold mid
outspoken fashion of 1 1 1 - earlier
days when they stood in little fear
of the votes of workingmt-n, and
were free to declare openly their
determination to cheapen lahor
nnd reduce wages ly lowering;
the tariff, lly going bark to Wl and
"PI,'j'i11g 'he methuds of historic
ftudy to the great tariff dehate of
that year, the author of "The Tariff
Kiddle" has sueecded in clearing up
a threat f mount of confusion, and
making the issue between free trade
and protection no riddle at all.
The a nt i protectionist storm which
broke in 112 had been gathering
head for many years, just as the
southern free traders grew more
nnd more delern.inerf not to pay the
cost of a hign wage, free-labor sys
tem nt the north. Thus in the "Kx-
position" adopted by the legislature
of South Carolina in K.N ns its
Kolemn remonstrance and jrotest
ngaiiiHt protection, no secret was
made of the fact that the south
wanted the tariff lowered for the ex
press purpose of reducing northern
wngeH.and profits. On the contrary,
in Htating the effect of a low tariff
on the north and south, respectfully,
the legislature of South Carolina
"It would compel them northern
producers) to contend witii the rest
of the world in our market in free
nnd opeti competition, the effects of
which would have been a reduction
of prices to the lowest point, there
by enabling us to exchange the
product of our labor most ndvan-tngeously-giving
little and receiv
injf much, while on the other hand,
in order to meet Kuropcan competi
tion they northern capitalists and
workmen would have been com
pelled to work at the lowest wages
Ah is thown in "The Tariff
Riddle," this seductive idea of the
cot'ori planter, "giving little nnd
receiving much," while northern
workingmen were to be "compelled
to work at the lowest wagea and
profits," has been at the bottom of
southern opposition to the tariff for
more than threescore years. At
one time it was openly and frankly
admitted that such was the object
of "tariff reform." It would be
ruinous in these days of universal
suffrage and a preponderance of
drength in the north to disclost
the whole truth and declare that
the purpose of a low tariff is to cut
down northern wages and profits.
The real purpose has to be kept
veiled nowadays, but there has
been no real change in the policies
of the cotton south. Now, as ever,
it demands a revenue tariff, and for
the same purpose as in IfCS, viz., to
effect a reduction of northern
wagon, ('fenerations come and go,
Imt the doctrine of the southern
free traders remains the same. If
the democratic convention which
meets in Chicago could have the
full courage of its convictions it
would frankly and fearlessly adopt
the citation made above as its tarilf

TlIK resignation of Secretary
Maine was received with general
surprise and more or less regret,
nnd it changes the aspect of things
entirely, for there can be no ques
tion about the fact that he was the
first choice of the party for the
presidential nomination in the be
ginning-. He could have secured it
by simply saying that he would ac
eept it. No other name than his
would have been presented to 1he
convention under any circuin
stances. Hut he gaveofVicial notice
that he was not a candidate, and
emphasized his declination nt
later date by saying that he could
not accept the oflic if he should be
nominated and elected. It is dilli-
cult to believe that he was insincere
when he thus practically took him
telf out of the contest and left the
way free for other aspirants, partic
ularly the present admirable incum
bent of the position; and the con
elusion billows that he has been in
duced to cluuge his mind ht this
late day by a pressure which he did
not expect and which he does not
think he can afford to disregard, for
party as well as personal reasons,
This may cause a fight in the con
vention which may result in the
defeat of both Harrison nnd Maine
but it makes no difference who is
nominated, whether it be Harrison,
Maine, Sherman, Allison or McKin
ley, nil are good men and can beat

THE COST OF A DEMOCRATIC
A whole day of last week was con-
sinned by the house trying to cor
rect a democratic speech; a speech
never made on the floor of the house,
but lugged into the record under
the permission "to print." liven then
it did not eucceed in accomplishing
tha feat. The cost of tinieconsuined
in this abortive proceeding was
something more than $.",KiO. Ine

PROTECTION AND AGRICULTURE.
Our American policy of protection
was inaugurated by fanners for the
special benefit of fanners.
The first congress, which framed
the first tariff, was composed for the
most part of winners, and it was
signed by n farmer president
These men felt the need of protec
tion in order to create a home mar
ket for their product.
They had all the fanners they
wanted, but were suffering for
non-agricultural population to
buy what they raised.
They could not sell their wheat
and vegetables to one another.
From the first our tariff system
has depended for its maintenance
in every election on farmer' votes.
They remembered how wretched
they were when all were agricultur
ists and how protection brought
them relief exactly as the frainers
of the first tarilf had predicted.
So nothing has ever been able to
wean the American fanner from his
love for Washington's and Ilatnil
ton's, nnd Jefferson's and Madison's
protective policy. And the free
trade "reformer" is unablt xo do so
Farmers see the land of Virginia,
which has few factories, selling on
an average nt about if 11 an acre,
while the poorer land of Pennsyl
vania, with many factories, brings
flit an acre.
In Mississippi, devoted exclusive
ly to agriculture, land sells for less
than $)i nil acre, but brings $12 in
sterile, but manufacturing, Massa
chusetts. The arerage in Georgia, where
mills are almost unknown, is be
tween $4 nnd $5 per acre; but in New
Jersey, with all its swamps and clay
inns, nie average vanie or land is
So the fanners continue, and will
continue, to vote for protection and
against free trade, because they do
not want to vote away one-half the
value of their farms.
And who can blani them for it?

A Pop with the "Kvll Fj."
In tho curly years of his papacy, when
he was adored by the Unman people.
Pins IX was driving throiiKh the street
of Rome and chanced to look up to an
open window, where a nurse was stand
ing with a child. A few minutes after
ward the nurse let the child drop to tin
pavement below nnd it was killed. In
stead of laying tho blame to the care
lessness of the nurse it was laid to th
malevolent influence of tho evil eyi
nnd the fancy became universal amoa
the lower classes in Italy that the pop.
had tho evil eye, and it lasted until hi
death, Travelers who knew of tho Ih
lief were often amused to see peopl
kneeling to receive the pope's blessing
and at the same time holding the finger
forked to break the maleficent power o.
his glance. When Pius IX gave up hi
liberal theories and fell back to the oh'
accustomed methods of government
there were an abundance of liberals who
took it as proof positive that he wu
possessed of an evil spiritChicago
A Lawyrr'a Little Joke.
Tho humor of the leiral mind is some
times a triflo subtle. There is just now
to lie seen in the window of a famou:
secondhand book shop in the Strand i.
complete set of "Voltaire" in fifty vol
nines. The set is bound in what is tech
nically known as "law calf." It lia.
evidently belonged to a lawyer who het-i
tated to let his clients perceive that In
was given to reading anything so mi'
chiuvously frivolous as the philosoph.
of Forney, or who could uot resist hi
own little joke. Instead, therefore, of
lettering the volume "Voltaire," which
everylHsly would have understood. In
had them inscribed "Aronet's Report.-."'
The joke would of course bo lost up;,
thoso who happened to have forgone,
that tho great philosopher's proper n;.!i:v
was Arouet do Voltaire. London Cor

William Toomey, familiarly known an
old Bill Toomey, died at WM o'clock Fri
day night. Tliis is a case where death had
all the alleviating circumstances pos
sible. For forty years old Dill Toomey
laid out the dead of this town, man,
woman and child, without exception.
He never would accept any remunera
tion for these kindly services, always
rejecting money and saying, "It's a real
pleasure to me and no trouble nt all."
His wife's millinery shop supported
him and her comfortably, and it soon
became known that old Bill Toomey was
ready and anxious to come at all hours
of the day and night, rain or shino, win
ter nnd slimmer. To inako snre that no
one would be laid out without him he
fell into the habit of keeping careful ac
count of all tho sick, and made his
rounds of inquiry each evening. Sev
eral times, when sick persons were not
exjiected to live through the night, Mr.
Toomey spent tho night watching the
house of sickness, without regard to his
health or the weather. Aristotle (Ind.)

Probalily the oldest timlier in the
world which has been subjected to the
use of man is that found in the ancient
temples of Egypt in connection with the
stonework, which is known to be at
least 4.000 years old. This, the only
wood used in the construction of th"
temples, is in the form of ties holding
the eud of one stone to another. When
two blocks were laid in place, an ex
cavation about an inch deep was made
in each block, in which a tie shaped like
an hour glass is driven. It is therefore
very diflicult to force any stone from its
position. The ties appear to have been
of the Tir arish or Shittim wood.
