An Atrocious Sentiment-
Six years ago, in a conversation with
Hon. Orange Noble, Congressman Will
iam L. Scott, the noted Democratic free
trader, in speaking of the labor troubles
ef that time, said: "We can never con
trol the workingman until he eats up to
day what he earns to morrow." Scott
carries thjs atrocious idea into practical
effect in his coal miue. He pays lower
wages than anybody else, and, so far as
he can do so, keeps them from earning
enough to lay by for a rainy day.
No wander he is a free trader. That
policy will cut wages down, glut the la
bor market with unemployed pien, and
tend to reduce our laboring population
to tne condition or. serfs. Scott is a lead
er in national Democratic politics, and is
devoting himself, heart and soul, to the
endeavor to hoodwink the people into
voting for Cleyeland and his free trade
idea?, in the hope that through the for
cing of a fi-eairade policy upon the
country he will realize his'reiark fif fix
years ago, and be able to 'control the
workingman'' by making it a necessity
for him "to eat up to-day what he earns
