For County Attorney,
independents, who hayo found out in
tho Inst two years that his knowledge f
of law ifl as slim as hair ii on a chick
en. During his incumbenor of
tho office of county attornoy ho
has not won a caso fer the county al
though quite n number of important
ones have been up for trial. If he is
tir-clcctcd ho is liable to got tho coun
ty into costly suits over legal points
of which ho knows nothing. lie has
always boon a farmer and hence can
not bo a successful lawyer. Hopkins
has to hayo help from attorneys when
ho has cases coming up and as a con
sequents tho county has to pay extra
for it. when tho nroicoutlntr attorney
should bo ablo to do tho work for
which ho is paid a good salary. Think
of two years and not ono successful
caso of his own efforts.

In Ills speech when nominated.

D. Hi. HUNTER, Editor.
Tho independent convention at
Cowlcs was anything but harmonious,
and altogether unsatisfactory. With
tho republican ticket wo beliovo wo
can sooop tho whole outGt in Novem
ber. Two years of folly is enough for
ono county to go through with. Let's
hayo gtid, clean, honest and intelli
gent men for office.
Tho West Point cadctship is a
thorne in tho Bido of our windy-pond-cnt
candidato for congress. The
thorno is not likely to bo drawn out
until it has killed tho fellow who run
into it without thinking of the result,
Tho idea of n banker's rclativo being,
picked out from among a wholo lot of
intelligent farmer boys who ought to
havo had tho position, but were kept
out by a big fee charged for that pur
poso by somo ono.
Tho independent crowd oyer tho
stato are having a regular pow-wow in
thoir camp, They all want office and
how in tho mischief to got it is a
question of groat import to them.
Just now their' papers of stato rcputo
aro pounding that wtloy old gcntlo
man 0 known ns Crazyhorac, (Van
Wy'ck) and also many other innocent
looking individuals who failed to got
oflico and then joined tho Windy
pondonts to gain their point. Van
Wyck wants to bo govornor, but what
hurts him is that a wholo lot of his
ilk want tho samo office, and nil of
them nro in tho samo party. How
pleasant, &o., it is to dwoll in unity,
jou know. ,
With 09 good a show ad tho repub
licans havo, this year to elect their
men, it will bo thoir own fault if they
do not do so. Tho independents havo
ratd6 fatal mistakes from Weaver
down to county -attorney, and tho re
publicans tjhould profit by it. The
CniEr is absolutely certain that with
Hon: W. R: Andrews of IlastiugB, re
publican candidate for congress, wo
nan win tho congressional raco over
Mr. McKcighan, simply by stickiog
together. Tho independent candidato
has done nothing in congress that
could recommend him to bis constitu
ency, and has absolutely failed to do
many things that ho promised during
his campaign, if tho pooplo would
eloot him. In Mr. Androws, wo havo
a clean, honorablo nnd intelligent
gentleman who is qualified to dUouss
all of tho important questions of tho
day, and if ho is sent to congrosH ho
will bo ablo to bouimund attention
what tho publio needs in men who
have sonic intelligent ideas uud who
a'ro prepared to nprcad them beforo tliu
people. DctimgogiBm is all well
enough in its place, but it should not
bo displayed in tho halls of congress,
Mr. Andrews' opponent is a man of
just ono idea and that in froo trade,
and tho rest of hia ability is wound
up in demugoguo oratory that in used
to win votes. Of what bonofit lia
Mr. Molveighan been to the district?
Will somo ono answer.?
Wages at Homestead,
Tho Democratic House sent a commit
tee to Homoetond with the hops of mak
ing n showing of distress and poverty
among tho laborors in protected indus
tries. Thoy hoped to enow that work
mon in protected industries set no bene
fit from ft protective tariff. Hut they
will not show that.
What thoy found was workmon Rotting
from $1.10 n day (tho lowest rate, and
Hint only to n few) up to as high as $10
per day. Thero wore men ofTerd 91,000
fcj.COO, $3,000 and oven $5,000 por annum
and working about 270 days in the year
nnd vet thoy had learned to feel and be
liovo, undor the experience of n protec
tive torili, that thoy ought 10 nave more.
No wonder Congressman Dynura. Demo
crat, of Indiana, and a member of the
committee inquired with some show of
onuerness whether thoro was a chance
for him to eocuro n position in the works.
Whon Hugh O'Donnell, tho loader of
the strikers, was on the stand, Mr. Boat
ner, (Democrat, of Loaisana) asked him:
"You nro ono of tho skilled workmen,
nro you not V
"About what wore your wagos ?"
About $144 por month."
.Tnhn MoLukfo. n mombor of tho Am
algamated Association and a burgess of
Homestead, complained to tho commit
too that tho McKinloy law reduced the
tariff on stool billots, nnd that wages,
theroforo, began to go down with the
price ot steel billets otter its puBsnge.
Ho ndvnnced the Bomewhnt extraordin
ary opinion that tho securing of the re
duction of tariff on stool billets was
nnrt of n conspiracy to reduce the wages
ot workingraen. Ho also charged that
the company "shortly converieu me
Duquenco works into a bdlet plant, in
creased the production, iloodod the oonn

thus affect our wages. The Duouesne

This would soom to account better for
the reduction in price ot steel billots
limn Ilia removal of the tariff.
ltepreeentatlvo Oates, of Alabama, the
Domocratio chairman of tho Democratic
committee ot investigation, was inter
viewed after he returned from Homestead
"That tho workmon nt Homestead
were far above tho averngo in intelli
gence and seemed to be fairly prosper

"An Mr. Friok had positively tieoiined
to discloso to tho committee the cost per

llomestend mills. Mr. Oates could not
Bay whether tho contontion of the men

that the allegation of tho men that the
company had purposely produced an

dune tho scale ot wages of the workman
Ulatant domogoguea have spread
many lying report ot the misery, pover
ty nnd degradation of the workmen at
Tha result of tho Cowles convention
of tho independent' party, is having a
desultory cfloct upon tho members of
that 'organization. Austin Riloy,
while ho may bo ull right ay a man, in
not fitted for a lcgislatjvo candidate
and is absolutely valueless as u legis
lator representing a county us impor
tant as Webster, nnd'his own party
does not generally endorso him. His
record in the last legislature is blank,
and bo it will bo again.-
Harry Hopkins, tho -aojninco fdr
county attorney, is a bitter pill to tho
lomoatead, and Democratic politicians
have boon quicn to take up tows reports
and glorv in them as showing tha Mlam
ityof n proteotwe tariff. Bat the day
has gone by when lies of this soit can
befool the people. The country is not
prepared to judge finally on the meriUof
tho striken' quarrel ot HomMtead. But
that the wages they have been getting
And tho wages they ore offered are suoh
a would leavo them in the belploM and
poorly condition ot Inboring men in Eu

bo truo out of tho mouths of the strik
ers and the Deiuoaratd themselves.
