Xl.WCAsl I.i:, in Filmland, is a yreat coal town, and free trade has worked irretrievable injury to the liritish industries that buy New castle's coal. That is why New castle has elected Mr. llamond, a tory democrat, to parliament. 'r. Ilaimnul has been advocating pro teetive duties, and when his elect ion was announced in the National Liberal club they said "McKinley did it." New York Tress. Tin: K'ichiuotKl (Va.) Times says 'there are but two parties which Virginia and the south can know, and whoever is not for the demo cratic party in this liyht is ayainst it." This is to be the style of cam paign in the south and it will lie ef fective. The republicans of the north, who are talking about peo ple's party, need expect no help Irom the south, The people's party will have no electoral voters in the south. A CHANCE FOR COMPOSERS.

THE SITUATION IN KANSAS. The action of thedemocraticstab convention in Kansas indorsing the presidential electors of the pen pie's party yoes tt show that it is anythiny to beat the republican party. 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 try. They virtually concede that with the help promised them by the democracy, it thev can not win there they can not win anywhere In the canvass for governor in lN'.Hi the republican candidate had 11.",(HKI votes, the alliance nearly 107,000, and the democracy 71,000. The re publicans, who elected Jlumphrey had a plurality of al unit S.000 over the alliance, but their vote fell about ;!,( X H t short of the combined alliance and democratic strength On this exhibit the people's parly the successor ol the alliance, Pases its hope of success this ear. lint in making this estimate two im iiort.int considerations are los - sight of, vi.. : Hirst, the 111 it d party ites. as shown bv the vote for loci ollicers in lvd, reached their hi est strength ia Ivhi; and, secondly 1he democratic convention s action in indorsing the people's party ticket is being repudiated by rcprc seiitative democrats in all parts o the state and will be resented at th noils. The elements of opposition to the leiiublica.fs. Ihefefoie, will I not beat all danecrolis. There i not the slightest probability th the thir I party can poll as many vote a it did two years a 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 field, or it may manifest itself in a 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 old place in the republican column. 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 from th in. They see in every shop foreign yood-i ol -ome ili-seripl mil or other. I hey know that in the nitric where the yoods collie t'om Ivnyli'll yooils ale liable to lea VV out ics.

WACES IN AMERICAN AND ENG LISH MILLS. While all the democratic and free trade papers are howliny ayainst Mr. I'arnceie and Mr. h'rick lor their reduction of 11! per cent, which may be unjust and should be resented, it would be well for them to see what these men are uettilur and omparc it with what is paid in tlicr countries. The Iron Aye of June lit), ivj'J, yives the following liyurcs as the wayc list of "a well equipped mill in Western I'enn.sylvaiiia, workiny under the Amaly .minted scale, which is the scale deterinininy the rate of wayes at C'arneyie's works." We place Kiiylish rates for like work in separate paragraphs: The American waye list stand thus for the year ls'.'l: 1 Yr t urn. Hits in 7 inrli mill.

Hut if reduction be necessary, theXjumen nfTected by it still will be in receipt of incomes far in excess of those of most preachers, doctors, lawyers, teach ers, authors, clerks or fanmus. For Sale.
