THE EARS WILL SHOW.
The ass in the lion's skiii was
readily recoarnissed by his ears. The
noble beast's skin could not hide
them. So it is with Mr. Bryan of
this district. His distressing effort
at cheap notoriety as a revenue re
former needs only the passing
scrutin3' of the citizen to detect the
assanine ears. The following pas
sage from the remarks of Congress
man John Dalzell, of Pennsylvania,
during the tariff debate at the pres
ent session of congress full' illus
trates Mr. Bryan's cheap bid for the
farmers' support by the introduc
tion of his binding twine measure.
Mr. Dalzel' said:
"But the wounds of the farmer
are to be healed bv giving him free
binding twine. A more glaring at-
tempt than this to impose on the
uhty of the farmer could not
be conceived. The present law
calls for a duty of seven-tenths of a j
cent per pound on binding twine.
This twine is made from foreign
products, manilla, sisal grass and
jute, and from an American prod
uct, hemp. The raw materials of its
manufacture are free.
"Under the protection afforded
by the act of 1833, '21-j cents per
ponnd, an American industry was
built up, and we now have thirt--five
cordage and binding twine
factories that payout iu wages to
American workmen the - sum of
?2,0C0.000 annually. With what re
8iiK to the farmer? With this re
sult, that whereas, before protection
he paid 17 cents a pouud for his
binding twine, he. now pays. 72
ront?. and his entire "supply is fur
nt -'' :l by American manufacture,
y, even the Mills bill placed a
.ction equivalent at present
to 2 cents a pound on bitid-:-..ine,
but the new apostles of
glish doctrine for American
conditions would make it free.
Why? Because if there are no im
norlations there is no need for a
tariff. A brill'ant idea, truly! To
repeat my answer to the genteman
from Tennessee Mr. McMillin, be
cause your neighbor's hogs do not
come into your clover patch when
the fence is up, you should take
down the fence.
"Binding twine is made in India
at a cost of $5 per month for labor;
it is made in Belfast and Dundee at
half the cost for labor that it is with
us. The present bill is not even
good democratic doctrine. The
democratic platform of ISSi says:
"'The necessary reduction in taxation
can and must le effected without depriv
ing American labor of the ability to com
pete (successfully with foreijjn labor, and
without imposinelower rates of duty tnan
wi'l be ample to cover any increased cost
of production which may exist in conse
quence of the higher rate of wages pre
vailing in this country.'
"And the democratic platform of
1SS8 reaffirms the same doctrine.
"No man asserts that this seven
tenlhs cent duty increases the price
of the farmers' twine. Let me read
you what the gentleman from
Nebraska (Mr. Bryanl, who is the
champion of this bill, said on the
'We atrree there were consumed in this
country hist yearalout one hundred mil
lion pounds ot l)i nil. u ic t.vme. We agree
that if a tariff of seven-tenths of 1 per cent
i added to the price of the binding twine
that it costs the peoo!e of this country
$7K),IX0 because of that tariff. We agree.
ulso, that no binding twine was imported
and that no revenue was received bv the
rovernment from this source. Therefore,
if this was a tax upon the consumer, it
was a tax of $7 ).0uu taken ' u1 of the peo
ple's iocket, not one cent cfv hich reached
the treasury. According '.o trie repub
lican idea that is an ideal tariR ; it em
braces the maximum of burden with the
minimum of revenue.'
"And the house answered this
brilliant syllogism founded upon
an "ii" with the only replj- that it
deserves with "laughter." The
gentleman's logic recalls the old
fallacy of the school books: If no
cat has two tails, and if every cat
has one more tail than no cat. then
every cat has three tails."
Mr. Bryan may depend on it the
republican farmer, the democratic
farmer and the independent farmer
are all able to detect the sham and
fraud surrounding this type of
tariff reform statesmanship. THE
HEKALD was reliably informed yes
terday that some of the alliances of
Cass county were already negoti
ating with the Fremont twine fac
tory for their binding twine for
1892. Yet Mr. Bryan and eery
snide reformer of his ilk would be
only too happy to drive this little
Fremont industry from Nebraska
territory. The day and the hour

And Yet Be Gave Him Six Month.
A fine, stalwart man, with a frank,
open expression, was arraigned for steal
ing s pair of shoes from a dealer. "Did
you steal the shoes?" asked the judge.
"He caught me, judge, with the shoes
and the box in my hand. Ill tell you
how it was," began the complainant,
but he was cut short and reminded that
the prisoner had pleaded guilty. "How
did you come to steal the shoes? You
look like a hard working man," re
marked the court. "Well, I stole them,
judge, and he caught me," was the re
ply, lie was committed for six months.
The judge remarked later: "I was rather
taken with that man. He came up to
the bar like a Marc Antony, not with
the sleek expression, 'Your honor,' or a
whine of any kind. Had he given me
any good excuse I would have been very
lenient with him, for if I am not very
much mistaken in my judgment he is no
thief, but an unfortunate fellow who
was pinched by poverty." Brooklyn
Carlyle's View of Aprons.
Carlyle in his "Sartor Resartns" was
able to find a deep philosophy in aprons.
"Aprons are Defenses; against injury to
cleanliness, to safety, to modesty, some
times to roguery. From the thin slip of
notched silk (as it were, the emblem and
beatified Ghost of an Apron), which
some highest bred housewife has grace
fully fastened on; to the thick tanned
hide girt around him with thongs,
wherein the builder builds and at even
ing sticks his trowel; or to those jingling
sheet iron aprons, wherein your otner
wise half naked Vulcans hammer and
smelt in their smelt furnace is there
not range enough in the fashion and
uses of this vestment?
