Hut what are the prospects for
the parties in Kansas? The friends
of the Omaha ticket believe that
they are stronger in that state than
they are anywhere else in the conn

In the canvass for governor in lN'.Hi
the republican candidate had 11.",(HKI
votes, the alliance nearly 107,000,

Minor organizations never loom ii
very effectively in presidential can
vasses. Their greatest strength is
always shown in the intermediate
years. The democratic protest
against the combination may re
sult in the placing of a straight
democratic set of electors in the

movement of the bolters over to the
republican camp. In either case it
may be assumed with entire safety
that Kantian will in 1W2 retain lice

FREE TRADE IN ENGLAND.
Kmployers and capitalists can
shift their headquarter to the
L'nited States ami other countries,
and there at once o'ltain the benefits
of the protectionist system. They
can send back their manufactures
to Knyland freeof duty, and compete
on ecpial terms in the l'nited States
with nativecapitalists. Hut work
inymeii cannot trausplate them
selves (uite so eaisly. They must
remain where they are and see the
tiylit out. They know pel teeth well
that if foreign markets are closed to
their productions their industries
iiiuM languish and the means of
existence will gradually be taken
