Skei.f.y, Chairman. Secretary. "CHEAP." 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 ever grow. 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 York Tribune. 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. An Explanation. 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. You who are suffeiing can well appreci ate a cure.

(Name this paper in joux order.) THE KIIYBER PASS. EX-MAYOR CARTER HARRISON AMONG THE AFGHANS. Caution of the tlre In reriulttliig: the Approach of Stranger CoiuIchI Inter view with the Chief of a Tribe The Historic Gorge. 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 morning. 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 men. 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 cago Mail, Advantages of Paper Doors.
