"Walt. M. Skei.f.y, Chairman.
Cheap things, the tariff reformers ant.
Well, if a fuan can make his pair of
shoe? for himself, better than any he
could buy, and in spare time that would
otherwise be unemployed, can he possil ly
bay cheaper shoes at any price? Why,
Its would be just so much out of pocket,
if his neighbor should sell him a tine pair
of shoes for sixpence.
Why should the country throw away
its money, buying things which its own
unemployed labor could produce? The
whole Nation, like one man, has so many
hours for work each year, with which it
must pay for all its purchases. Pait of
them are not employed. Some men are
unemployed all the year, some have work
part of tits year only, soma are on strike
bee. use their wages do not suit, some are
idle because people do not earn enough
to buy all that certain factories could
produce, working full time. Altogether,
let it be supposed that the unemployed
labor is equal to the full time of one
man in an hundred, say 000,000 men,
each 300 working days. Then ISO mil
lion working d iy g t.i waste in a year.
If part can bj put into the making of tin
plate?, w hich c st the Nation $17,000,000
1 it year, would not the Nation save just
that sum, less the trlile it would have to
pay for the tun used in coating.' That
would occupy not a tenth of the wasted
cl.ys" labor, ll.it if ths foreigners should
o.Ter us tin plates at a quarter of the
prescut price, which would be the cheap
er, the imported plates costing only 4,
29,000, or the domestic tin plates cosi
ing days' labor now wasted ? The Na
tion has to support soinliov all these
unemployed me.i, as it stands: it gets
nothing for th?ir ka, a:ul lt could get
tia plates. Winch i the cheaper, to use
labor now idle, or to keep the idle labor
alive and sen 1 $17,000,000 to England
for tin plates?
Then there arc left more than 170 million
working days going to waste. La&t year
we bought from abroad S1G,OOO,OO0
worth of wool, because it was "cheap,"
and 41,OJO,000 worth of woolen goods
for the same reason. That is why a good
many of the men are not employed.
Which would be cheaper, to pay 60,
000,003 for "ch?ap" wool and woollens,
or to produce them with labor now wast-edf-
"Bat it would eot too much to
grow wool here or make woollens." .Just
the other way; it costs lo much to keep
iii indleness a people who ought to be
making wool and woollens, but who arj
deprived of work by large imports. Lt t '
it hi supposed that C0.000.000 days' ,
work, the year's labor of 200,000 men 1
and women, would produce what we im-
port. Somehow, they now eat up and
otherwise consume what costs $125 year
ly for each person, "or $2o,000,000, and
we now pay $00,000,000 for what they
deu't produce, but gladly would. Thaw
is not cheap wool, nor cheap clothing.
If Europe would send us the goods, and
Australia the wool, at a cost of $20,000,
000 instead of $00,000,000, the entire
cost to the Nation would still be $20,
000,000 for things bought and $25,000,-
000 for the keep of idle workers. Made
here, the same things would cost the
keep of the 200,000 workers now idle,
and enough besides to make them self-
1 expecting American citizens. That would
bu cheaper wool than any Australia can
The dearest goods the Nation can pos
sibly buy are those for which it pays the
ke;p of idle men and women who would
gladly work. The foreigner who wants
to send goods here to take the indepen
dent manhood from an American ought
to be required at least to contribute what
it costs to feed and clothe him. But
when President Cleveland proposes to
increase the army of idle men and women
in order to get cheaper wool and wool
lens from abroad, he does not know the
meaning of the word "cheap." New
TtiK tariff between France and Italy is
expected to extend the sales of American
cuttle in the former country and American
textiles in Italy. As is usual in most of
the conflicts of this ( lass waged between
European l'oweis, the principal injury
which the present war will intliet will
com? upon the p.irtics engaged in the
contest. Globe Democrat.
What is this "nervous trouble'' with
which so many seem now to be ulll'icted? If
you will remember a few years ago the
word Malaria was comparatively un
known, today it is as common as any
word in the English language, yet this
word covets only the meaning of another
word used by oar forefathers in times
past. So it is used with nervous diseases,
as they and Malaria are intended to cover
what our grandfathers called Biliousness,
and all are caused by troubles that arise
fro . a diseased condition of the Liver
which in performing it functions finding
it cannot dispose of the bile through the
ordinary channel is compelled to pass it
olf through the system causing nervous
troubles, Malaria, Bilious Fever, etc.

gust Flower. Its cures are marvelous.

THE KIIYBER PASS.
EX-MAYOR CARTER HARRISON AMONG
Caution of the tlre In reriulttliig: the
Approach of Stranger CoiuIchI Inter
view with the Chief of a Tribe The
I started out in this letter to tell you of the
land of the moguls and their glorious monu
ments, and Intended doing so Lore; but the
"Dak Bungalow" we are in is not comforta
ble for writing in at night. I shall, there
fore, leave them now, and write up that
portion of my travels in Delhi on our way
back southward. I shall end this by telling;
you of a glorious ride I have had into Af ghanistan
today. I have a letter from Lord
Duffer in bespeaking for mo the good office
of all officials throughout his crnjre. Armed
with this, upon my arrival bore I called upon
the deputy commandor, and asked a permit
to go into the Kbyber pass, leading into the
land of the axneer as far as possible. The re
sult was that this morning, accompanied by
one of his native officials, we drove eleven
miles to the fort at the foot of the hills. Here
we found our liveryman had sent a relay of
horses to carry us purt of the way up tho
pass, where we expected to find saddle
horses, also sent from the city early in the
WITH AW ESCORT.
Accompanied by an escort of eight
mounted cavalrymen, splendidly mountenl
and carrying lances, wo dashed toward and
into the foothills. On every high point for
a mile or two a couple of soldiers would step
from a little stone hut and present arms as
we passed by at full speed. Sometimes those
sentries were 100 or 200 feet above us. As
wo had come from the town wo had seen
several regiments practicing field exercises.
This, together with these frequent sentry
posts, made us realize that wo were In a
neighborhood where dread war might at any
hour break into wild whoops. Hut our es
cort were splendid looking fellows and were
fully armed, and I had a two-barreled littlo
Derringer. We were able to copo with an
army in a narrow gorge. We passed a cara
van of camels, mules, and cows all packed
and accompanied by wild looking armed
We had not gone two miles upward before
our carriage horses balked. We got out and
walked. One of the soldiers dismounted mid
offered me his horse, a beautiful stallion, full
of mettla and horse sense. I mounted and
rode ahead with two soldiers, the others com
ing slowly up with the boys till they should
reach the next relay. The pass is through a
wild, desolate, and grand gorge, bold, rocky,
and bleak mountains lifting far above the
road, which is a fine but steep military o:it.
My two "sikhs" were splendid looking fel
lows. Thoy seemed to appreciate my horse
manship you know my great modesty never
makes me deny that I can ride and talked
to each other and to me in good Pungahie. I
pretended to understand enough to keep them
in good humor, while on we dashed. In
about an hour one of them said something to
the "sahib" (gentleman) which I understood
to be that I must ride 6lowly. He dashed
forward at f uil speed wo were now on a
down grade. The two of us rodo on slowly.
We met men in couples, armed and wild
looking. I was given to understand they were
friends, but I could not help feeling a sort of
exhilaration. A wilder gorge does not exist
anywhere. Several rocky points had small
Afghan round houses, with loop holes for
muskets or riiles. Wilder looking fellows
than those we met would be hard to find aay
where. Di CLOSS QUARTERS.
I guessed rightly that my departing escort
had gone forward to see if I would be per
mitted to proceed, for I felt pretty sure from
what the commissioner had told mo that my
permit only took me to the top of tho pass.
The corporal knew this, but the men with me
did not, and 1 did not intend to tell them. I
was going as far into Afghanistan as they
would accompany me, for I knew England
was at my back. Presently we saw our ad
vanced guard beckoning us from a far off
point. On wo dashed. We reached a little
stone hut against a steep precipice. My men
dismounted, motioning me to do the same.
They brought out of the hut a chair-, and
planting it against the cliff told me to take
my seat. Hardly had I done so when I saw
coming down a steep hill from a sort of
fortress high above a fine looking fellow with
a dozen wild looking armed men behind. It
was the chief of the tribe, the head of "Ali
Musjod." When ho approached I grasied
the situation. Ho was an independent chief,
in whose charge and keeping was this part of
the pass. J thought J recognized him, too,
as one of the chiefs I bad seen at Lady Duf-
i ferin's garden party, he being one of eight
whom the viceroy told me had at their com
mand over 25,000 first class fighting men.
I received him with a dignity worthy of
the 50,000 Democratic voters of Chicago.
He was very polite, but could not speak a
word of English, nor could any one of them
nil. Yet we talked. I showed him Lord
Dufferin's passport, and also that with Mr.
Bayard's name attached, with the seal of my
owa glorious land. I picked up a largo,
round stone, made a mark upon it, and
said "Peshawer"; another, and said "Cal
cutta." He understood. I then mado an
other and said "England," "London." This,
too, ho eromprehended. I turned the stone
over and drew a big country and said,
"America." He looked at me in a way that
plainly told me he thought I was lying. I
then drew a pretty big chart and pointed to
it, and touching it told him that was where
we were, and that ho was "rajah" of it. He
grinned. I turned the stone around and
with my pencil made a mark the sizo of a
pea, and told hiaa that was Chicago, and I
was its "rajah." He seemed pleased that hii
territory was bigger than mine, but mo
tioned to me to be seated. I wanted him to
sit, trying to explain that his "rajahship" on
the stone was bigger than mine. But he was
my host, and I must Lave the scat. I ex
plained that I had seen him eating ice cream
in Calcutta. He smiled audibly. He invited
me to his stronghold on the hill to partake
of food. I showed him my watch, intimat
ing that I was sorry not to have the time,
and that my companions would bo awaiting
me. Ve shook hands, ho touching his
heart, face, and forehead. This is the token
of highest respect. I suppose my escort had
convinced him I was a mighty man. Thus
parting with the lord of the territory of
"Ali Musjed," we rode forward, passing the
spot where Gen. Roberts won his victory
when marching to CabuL This is deeply
into th great Khyber pass and well into
Afghanistan. Carter LL Harrison in Chi
