Daily delegations from surrounding
states and localities wait on Gen. Harrison
who receives all and who has already
become famous for the brilliant and ver
satile qualities of the muny short, iia
jtrointu, addresses he has already made.
That made to a delegation of miners on

Gained Edward Wilson, said:
The miners have come here to take a
hand in procuring the bread and butter
mentioned by our chairman. Free trade
will bring us low wages and a very strong
smell in the butter. We did not leave
the shores of the old country to be bossed
in this land by foreigners. We believe
iii America for Americans. Those who
want a foreign policy ought to go abroad
to live. The highest wages for miners in
Southern England is (52 12 cents, and
the highest wages in England for mining
is $1 a day, aud half of this goes for
bread. We can make as much in Ameri
ca in one day as in two ia the old coun
try. Let us vote to make a demand for
our commodity labor. We intend to
vote this time for our wives and children.
We are going to take a hand in this

of Knightsville, also made remarks ex
pressive of the esteem in which General
Harrison is held in Clay county. Gener
al Harrison said in reply:
Gentlemen, and friends from Clay
county: I thank you for this enthusiastic
demonstration of your interest. I am
glad to be assured by those who have
spoken for you today that you have
brought here and desire to evidence some
personal respect for me. This demonstra
tion has relation, I am sure, rather to
principles than to men. You come here
as representatives of the diversified inter
ests of your country. You are fortunate
in already possessing diversified indus
tries. You have not only agriculture,
but the mine and factory, which provide
home markets for the products of your
farms. You come, as I understand, from
all these pursuits to declare that in your
opinion your interests as farmers, as min
ers. a3 mechanics, as tradesmen, are iden
tified with the maintenance of the doc
trine, of protection to American indusries,
and the preservation of the American
market for American products. (Cheers.)
Some resort to statistics to show that the
condition of the American workman is
lctter than that of workmen of any other
-uuntry. I do not care to deal now with
statistics. One fact is enough for me.
The tide of immigration from all Euro
jean countries has been and is toward
iur shores. The gates of Castle Garden
rwirj-j inward. They do not swing out
ward to any American laborer seeking a
lietter country than this. (Cries of
My countrymen, these men, who have
toiled at arages in other lands that barely
sustained life, and opened no ayenue 01
promise to them or their children, know
the good land of hope as well as the
swallow knows the laud of summer.
(Applause.) They testify that here then
Are better conditions, wider and more
liopoful prospects for workmen than in
Any other land.
The next suggestion I have to make is
this: That the more work there is to do
in this country, the higher the wagis that
will be paid for doing it. (Applause.)
I peak to men who know that when the
product of their toil is in demand in the
market, when buyers are seeking it,
wages advance with the demand, but
when the market for your product is de
pressed and the manufacturer is begging
for buyers, then the wages go down. I
it not clear then that that policy which
secures the largest amount of work to be
dose it home is the policy which will
secure to our laboring men steady em
ployment and the best wages. (Cheer?
and cries of "that s right.") A policy
which will transfer work from mines and
our factories to foreign mines fc.nd foreign
factories inevitably tends to the ciepres
ion of wages here. (Applause.)
These are truths that do not need pro
found study. Having here a land that
throws about the working man social
and political conditions more favorable
than are found elsewhere, if we eu pre
serve also more fayorable industrial con
ditions we shall secure the highest inter
ests of our working classes. (Great r.heer
ing.) What, after all, is the besttyidence
ofa national prosperity and best guaran
tee of social order if It is not an intelli
gent, thrifty, contented workijg class?
Can we look for contentment if the work
man is onfy able to supply his daily nec
essities by his daily toil, lut is not able
in the vigor of his youth t lay up a store
ngiinst old age? A condition of thlng9
that compels the laborer to contemplate
jyant as an incident of sickness or disa
bility is one that tends to social disorder.
(Applause aud cries of "That's so.") You I
are called upon now to consider these
problems. I will not debate them in de
tail. Others will. I can only commend
them to your thoughtful consideration.
Think upon them; conclude for yourseves
what policy as to our tariff legislation
will best subserve your interests, the in
terests of your families, and the greatness
and glory of the nation of which you are
citizens. (Cheers.)
My colored friends who are here today,
the emancipation of the slaye removed
from our country that which tended to
degrade labor. Men are now all free.
You are thrown upon your own resources.
The avenues of intelligence and of busi
ness success are open to all. I notice
that the party to which we belong has
been recently reproached by the sugges
tion that we have not thoroughly pro
tected the colored man in the south.
This has been urged as a reason why the
colored people should join the democrat
ic party. I beg the gentlemen who urge
that plea to answer this question: Against
whom is it that the republican party has
been unable, as you say, to protect your
rneei (Applause and cries of "Good,"
"Good.") Thanking you again for this
demonstration and your friendly expres
sions, I will, if it be your pleasure, drop
this formal method of communication,
and take my Clay county friends by the
hands. (Great cheering.)
This short, terse, trenchant, view of
the situation by Mr. Harrison should be
placed in the hands of every working
man in America. How well it reads
along side of one of Grover Cleveland's
The newst industrial "craze" is "smock
ing." Now "smocking" is a revival.
Years ago our grandmothers "smocked"
or "honey-combed" their best bedspreads
and towels. Now it is being used con
siderably for tri.iiBiii)2 dresses. It is
very ornamental; the pattern is usually a
diamond-shaped design, and it is said the
knack once acquired, the work is easy
and rapid. Curious it is how fashions
reassert themselves in all branches. Take
a errouo of ladies, chatting over their
morninsr fancv-work. The needle of one
speeds over a band of smocking-work;
another clicks a bewildering number of
long, steel needles, roundiq the toe of a
silk stocking, and another crochcia s

.To racing for Iler Cats.
The spectacle of a handsome woman in au

even loss curious person than myself. The
fact that I was well acquainted with tba
charming wearer of the gown and had never
known her ti bo adieted to excesses of
lunacy added to the Interest her act inspired
in me. Her explanation was simple enough,
however. She was foraging for her cats.
Pussy, it seems, has a gastronomic fondness
for grass second only to that which she th:
ishes for catnip. She devours grass, my fair

Khe goes to the trouble of carrying a hand
ful of grass home every day to her pets to
nibble on, and they do it justice, she says, as
a properly constituted Frenchman would
render its due to the most succulent salad.
They get the grass as a regulaF diet, and cat
nip as an occasional reviver at this season, but
in winter time have to worry along on catnip
alone. An additional and curious item, cc
cording to my enlighteuer, is that a fairly
well bred cat infinitely prefers the dried cat
nip one buys at the druggist's to the leaves
fresh from the field. lussy will roll herself
on the fresh leaves, and perhaps nibble them
just a little. She will roll on the dried cat
nip, too, and then devour it to the last crumb
and then stagger away to sleep oit her ,da

Press Censorship in Russia.
The drastic censorship of the press in Rus
sia is a curious study for Americans. We
have most of us seeu Jbissiaii newspapers
with whole columns blurred oui by fbe cen
sor. Carlisle's histories of "Frederick thw
Great" and the "French Revolution" have
only just been admitted to circulation. The
queerest thing is to take the French and
Russian editions of Rambaud's "History of
Russia" (London, 1879), and compare them,
No one would recognize them as tho sarno
work. But, then, as tho celebrated Olga
NovikofI once said to the present writer:
"You know our peasants are not allowed to
know that Peter III was murdered by the
Empress Catharine." The whole thing was
contained in that sentence. Belford's Maga
zine. Italy's New Criminal Code.
The new criminal code of Italy, just pro
mulgated, abolishes the death penalty for
murder or any serious crime. It' substitute
therefor imprisonment for life. Tho first
ten years is to be in solitary confinement at
hard labor. At the end of that period, if the
convict has conducted himself well, he can
thereafter 'work among his associate con
victs, but is still condemned to remain silent.
For continued good behavior he is to bo re
warded by permission to 6)eak .occasionally.
In case of dueling the court has first to
mine whether all laws of honor have been
complied with, and then the penalty is six
months' imprisonment for mere fighting. For
death, vo years' imprisonment; seconds in
the first case to have three months, in the
second case two months and a half. New

The conduct of foreign affairs by the ptesent
administration has been distinguished by inef
ficiency and cowardice. Having withdrawn
from the senate nil pending tieaiies effected
by republican administrations for the removal
of foreign burdens and restrictions upon our
commeice and for its extension into a better
market, it has neither affected nor proposed
any others In their stead. Professing adher
ence to the Monroe doctrir e. It has seen with
idle complacency the extension of foreign in -ttuence

everywhere amouj; our neighbors. It has re
fused to charter, sanction or encourage any
American organizytion for constructing the
Nicaragua canal, a work of vtal importance to
the maintenance of the Monroe doctrine and
of our national influence in Central and S uth
America, and nccessaiy fo- the development
of trade with our Haciiic territory, with South
America, and with the further coasts of the
Pacific Ocean.
We arraign the present democratic adminis
tration for its weak and unpatriotic trealment
of the fisheries question, and its pusillanimous
surrender of all privileges to which our fishery
vessels are entitled in Canadian ports under
the treaty of lss, the reciprocate marin
tine legislation of ltco and comity of nations,
and which Canadian fishing vessels receive in
the ports of the I'nitcd States. We con Jenin
the policy or the present administration ami
the democratic majority in congress towards
our linheries us unfriendly and eonspieiously
unpatriotic and as tending to destroy a valuable
national iudustry and an ludispensible resource
of defense against f. reign enemy.
The name of A merican applies alike to sill
cilizens of the rep:ibll and imposes upon men
alike the same obligation of obedience to the
laws. At the same time citizenship is and must
be the panoply and safeguard of him w ho weais
it, should shield aud protect him whether high
or low, rich or poor, in all his civil rights. It
should and must afford htm protection at home
and follow and protect him abroad in whatever
land he may be on a lawful errand.
The men who abandoned the republican par
ty in lssi and continue to adhere to the demo
cratic party have deserted not only the cause
of honest government, but of sound finance, of
freedom , and purity of the ballot, but espec
ially have deserted lie cau?e of reform in the
civil service. We will not tall to keep our
pledges because tt ey have broken theirs, or
because their candidate has broken his. We
therefore repeat our declaration of 1SS4, towit :
The reforni of civil service auspiciously begun
under republican administration should be
completed oy afurther extension of th reform
system already established by law to all grades
of the service to which it is applied. The spir
it aud purpose of reform should be observed iu
all executive appointments, and all laws at
varietice with the object of existing reforni leg
islation should be repealed, and that the dan
gers to free institutions which lurk in the pow
er "f official palrpuase may be wisely and ef
fectively avoided.
The gratitude of the nation to the defenders
of the union cannot be 'assured except bv laws.
The legislation of congress should conform to
the pledges made by a loyal people, and be so
enlaigi'd'and exteuded as to prov'de against
tli? possibility that any man who honorably
wore tiie federal uniform shatl become an in
mate of an almshouse or dependent on i rivate
charity. In the presence of an overflowing
treasury it would b a public scandal to do less
for those whose valorous service preserved the
government. We denounce the hostile spirit
shown by President Cleveland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and the
:i"tion of the democratic house of representa
tives In reiusidtf evt it consideration of general
pension legislation. '
In support of the principles herewith enun
ciated, we invite the co-operation of patriotic
men of all parties, f specially of all working
mpn whose prosperity is seriously threatened
by the tree fradp policy of the present administration.

A Warning.
The modes of death's approach are va
rious, ana statistics snow conclusively
that more persons die from disease of the
hroat and lungs than any other. It is
probable that everyone, without excep
tion, receives vast numbers of lubcrcle
Germs into the system and where these
eerms fall upon suitable sou they start
into life and develop, at first slowly and
is shown by a slight tickling sensation in'
the throat and if allowed to continue their
ravages they extend to the lungs produc
ing Consumption and to the head, caus
ing Catarrh. Jiow all this is dangerous 1
and if allowed to continue will in time
cause death. At the onset you must act
with promptness; allowing a cold to go
without attention is dangerous and may
looee you your life. As soon as you feel
that something is wrong with your throat,
lungs or nostrils," obtain a bottle of B03-
shee's German Syrup. It will give you
immediate relief.
