INDIFFERENT TO THE

Wasiiucoton, Oct. 10. Tho working
1MB of the country nro flndlnR in tho ro
ent labor troublo in tho sonth n beauti
ful opportunity to judgo of tho ronl nni
Bins of the two political parties toward
tabor and laboring people. That the
Democratic party has boon tho t oo of f reo
labor is a recognised feature of tho earlier
history of this country, and that it is etlll
Indifferent to the interests of tho labor
ing element must bo apparent to any
body if ho stops to study tho situation as
brought sharply into notice by tho pros
snt condition of affairs in tho south.
Word comes fromTenncssco that in epito
f the promises of tho governor tho con
lltions in regard to the uo of convict
tabor in competition with f reo labor havo
act at all improved.
Absolut Control Shows Iteat Sentiment.
It is only in tho states or localities in
which a party has absolute and undis
puted control for a long period that its
real attitude toward any clemont of so
siety is clearly shown. Whoro tho ma
jority is slender it is often necessary for
party leaders to hide thoir real sonti
ments in order to continuo their control.
But in tho southern states, whoro they
nave had enormous majorities and held
them constantly by their own peculiar
methods, they havo shown their cntlro
iUregard of tho interests of frco labor
and to the laboring element generally.
Convict Labor leased In tho "Sato linn
Tako the "safe" Democratic Mntcs of
the country nt largo ns an examplo.
There are perhaps a dozon which havo
been considered absolutely unto to tho
Democracy under all circumstances,
located of courso in tho south.
In ten of theso twclvo statos thoy havo
put convict labor into direct competition
with the workingmen of tho state. In
Duly two of the safe Democratic ntntca
baa tho party omitted to hiiow us Hos
tility to labor by failing to put convicts

Hon with the laboring men of tlioso
itates, and if tho laboring peoplo tluro
protest, that favorito argument of the
louthern Democracy, tho rifle, is turned
Brutal Treatment of 1'rlsniiers.
The tales of horror which como from
these convict camps nro shocking, not
only in the matter of their cruelty to tho
convicts themselves, but to tho working
people at large whoso interests nro over
ridden by a party which thus shows its
absolute contempt for their interest and
appeals. Prisoners are beaten, starved,
threatened with death in order toforco
them to perform heavy tasks and thus
Increase the competition which their la
bor produces against tho f reo labor with
which thoy are brought into competi
tion. Theso questions havo been brought
to tho attention of tho authorities tirao
after time, but with no avail. Labor
leased for forty cents por day, and driven
to its utmost tension with Hoggings and
threats of death, is calmly put into com
petition with tho working people at
largo, and thoy nro held in subjection
by the usoof rifles nndGatling guns,
while Democratic governors and legisla
tors refuse thorn rollrf.
Compare Tula -with J opiibllcan Method.
This could not luippon in any but n
solidly Democratic community. At least
It does not happen in any other. Thoro
are twico as many "safo Republican"
states at tho north ns thoro uro "safo
Democratic" states at tho south. Yet
there is scarcely a singlo ono of tho cer
tainly Republican states which permits

prevail in states whero tho Democracy

Df an enormous and Absolutely safo ma

jority the moro absoluto in this regard
of the rights of tho laboring man. In
ten-twelfths of tho solidly Democratic
itates leased convict labor is put into
competition with tho work ingroeu of tho
communities. Ten-twelfths of tho states
of the Union which lease their convict
labor are solidly Democratic Btates, for
there are but two states outsldo of tho
solidly Democratic south that have oven
a modified form of convict leaso system,
8an In National An'ulra.
Not only has tho Democratic party
shown its indlff erenco to tho rights of
labor under slavery And under tho con
vict lease system, but also by tho words
and votes of its officials at Washington.
When the Mills bill was beforo congress
a Republican amendment proposing to
exclude from tho United States goods
manufactured by convict .labor was do
feated by Democratic votes. A Mmilar
section in tho McKlnloy bill was almost
solidly opposed in tho voto by the Demo
cratic members of tho house. Mr. Cleve
land while governor of Now York vetoed
tho bill abolishing convict labor in pris
ons, and while president vetoed thoanti
convict labor bill in lt&U and again in
188$, and in his mctsago to congress in
It&W recommended the employment of
government prisoners in tho manufac
ture of such urticles us uro needed for
two by tho government, thus proiwsing
to put them in competition witli tho
workingmen of tho country. ,

Tho Democrats aro evidently Afraid of
tho tin plato argument. Thoy know that
under tho McKlnloy law tlio inuntifnc
turo of tin plato in this country has not
only becomo practicable, but ninny mil
lions of dollars havo boon invested in it,
forty or fifty establishments for its
manufacturo opened, and thousands of
workmen given employment nt good
prices. So thoy nco that tho fouturu
of tho McKlnloy law, which thoy most
strongly denounced, is already proved
a blessing. But thoy want to conceal
that fact and prevent peoplo talking
or thinking about it, or about tho benefit
which protection brings. And they havo
decided to uso tho official machinery of
Tammany in Now York city to prevent it.
This was tho way it camo nbout : Tho

over it. Every ono wanted ono of tho
pretty, shining toys for himself or her

hundreds of thousands of tho bright,

Nnw Yoiiic, Oct. 10. According
Hl0 Democratic lmtlonnl eomiuittco
Great Britain has grown tired of her
frro trade and Is about to put ti tariff on
certain American products upon thu
Aiwricnn protective theory. Tho liter
ary bureau of tho Democratic ln-ndquar-teia
announces that tho Enullsh jiirlla
luent will as mhu as it jiieetti iuhh an
act placing n tariff on American wheat,
for tho doublo purposo of getting even
with tho United States for our high tariff
duties and nt tho samo timo protecting
British colonists nnd British interests in
wheat growing Australia, Canada nnd
India. Thus it bcuius that tho British aro
nctively co-operating with tho Democrats
of this country to try to scare tho fann
ers of tho United States into voting
against Republican doctrines of protec
tion, while nt tho samo timo thoy aro
admitting their value by proposing to
adopt them for tho benefit of British col
onists whom they proposo to protect
against United States fanners. It is not
believed that this joint nttempt of tho
British nnd tho Democratic party to
bluff tho farmers Into voting tho Demo
cratic tickot will bo a success.
Democrat llndly Aliirmnl.
Tho fact is tho Democrats havo lw
como very much alarmed nbout tho
Munition. They havo rccolved reports
from tho west which convince them
that tho storica of pro.spcc.ivo Demo
cratic huccesa in tho western states nro
tho merest moonshine. They havo lost
hopo of carrying Illinois, Wisconsin
ni.d others of tho western states which
a month ago they wero claiming with
great persistency. Their only hopo lies
now in tho "assistant Democratic
party," as tho Pcoplo'.s party lias re
cently been denominated. If thoy can
get enough Republicans to vote with
that party in Kansas, Nebraska and tho
Dakotns to carry tho electoral votes
against tho Republicans they will thus
accomplish all that they now expect.
15ut thoro is littlo prospect of that. Tho
.'rpublicans of thoso states nro seeing
dearly thnt they aro being mado game
of and thnt tho Democrats nro attempt
ing to uso them nn n cnt's paw to pull
their chestnuts out of tho lire. They
nee that n voto for Weaver and Field is
indirectly n voto for Cloveland nnd

While upon this subject of tho ntti
tudo of houtliom Democrats toward
Union soldiers, it may bo interesting to
qnoto somothing from tho Lynchburg
(Vu.) News ns an evidenco of tho real
feeling of tho bouthoni Democrats to
ward tho old soldiers. Spoakiug of tho
possibility that tho outbreak of cholera
might interforo with tho Grnnd Army
encampment nt Washington that paper
said: "If that is all tho hann tho chol
era might do, wo think tho nntion will
bo benefited by its appearance, for wo
think it is high timo that theso camp
mcotiugs of tho G. A. R. woro broken
up and discontinued. Thoy originated
and aro designed to keep alive tho sec
tional divisions nnd animosity growing
out of tho war nnd to proinoto tho in
terests of tho Republican party. Tho
gathering in Washington is simply to
help Harrison to tho presidency. Who
cares if tho approaching cholera does
disconcert and break up its plans?"
Clint'liunl I'luilK ThlngH Mlxnl In ct
Rx-Frcsidcnt Clovclnnd, who has como
to Now York for a permanent stay, finds
that ho camo nono too soon. Tho loaders
aro in n panicky condition. Not only
nro thoy depressed over tho discovery
that thoy cannot carry any of tho rain
bow states for which thoy had vainly
hoped, but they seo tho ground slipping
from beneath their feet in Now York.
Almost every day somo prominent

3Ir. Clovelunl's letter of acceptance
Is conceded to bo tho wiukutt document
that liAan given tho public. It was
generally ciltitl-d as a pitiful at'jipt
to BtriiddUi all the doubtful issues of tho
campaign and make enemies of nobody.
Hero is what Chairman Carter of tho
Republican committee said of it:
It is rather difficult to figure out from
Mr. Cleveland's letter of accoptaneo pre
cisely what ho belloves about an v Ji.ng.
Ho starts out by saying that ho is mora
than ever confirmed in tho belief that
all tho thing!) which ho lias heretofore
lwlloved aro true and excellent. I sup
pose that nobody will doubt Mr. Clove
laud's regard for his opinions. Still in
tho present flltuntlon, tho Republican
party having declared plainly nnd ex
plicitly in a tariff so dovisod as to protect
American industries whllo rnlsing tho
rovenucs necessary to support tho gov
ernment, and tho Democratic pirty
having explicitly dcclnred that such an
arrangement of tho tariff is unconstitu
tional, it would havo bcon interesting to
know whothcr Mr. Cloveland agreed
with tho Republican or Democratic the
ory. It will bo remembered that in 18&t Mr.
Cleveland ran for tho presidency and
was elected on n platfonn which stated
that tho Democratic party simply de
sired to reform tho tariff, and that in re
forming it thoy did not intend to disturb
existing industries. Thoy said that they
wero nwAro of tho fact that many in
dustries depended on tho protcctivo tariff,
nnd thnt nil changes of existing law
must tako noto of tho interests of tho
labor nnd capital invested. This was"
ono of thoso characteristic Democrat
dodging planks which was intended
mean, nnd did mean, anything to nny
body. Mr. Randall stumped Now York
Baying that it meant protection; Mr.
Hurd stumped Ohio saying thatltmeant
frcotrado; Mr. Mills stumped Texns say
ing that it incnnt nn incomo tax; Mr.
Wntterson stumped Kentucky saying
that it was exactly in lino with tho views
of tho star eyed goddess of reform.
But tho Democratic convention of
1802, when this identical plank was pre
sented to it by its plntform committee,
ovcrwholmingly throw it out, nnd by a
voto of CIO to C13 tho convention de
clared itself for frco trado puro nnd sim
ple To havo regard for nny other pur
poso, it said, in devising n tariff, than
tho ono purposo of raising revenue, wan
unconstitutional. In dealing with this
plank Mr. Clovclnnd lins twisted in evi
dent distress. Ho means what tho plank
means, but docs not daro to say so. In
stead ho says ho believes what ho nhvays
ljcliovcd, and thnt everybody knows whnt
ho lias nlways believed, and that that
ought to bo enough. Finally ho Bays
tho peoplo cannot bo frightened by tho,
Bpccter or impo.ssiulo frco trade, which
means, if it means nnything, that tho
peoplo must havo confidence in him nnd
his party, becauso they do not really
mean what they say, nnd havo not tho
courngo of their convictions.
This is certainly a curious ground on
which to nppeal to intelligent people for
their suffrages. Tho Democratic con
vention dcclnred nt Chidngo in favor of
tho repeal of tho 10 per cent, tax on
Btnto bank issues. This has excited tho
profound nlnrm of every believer in a
stablo currency tho country over. Tlioso
of our peoplo who lived beforo tho war
will remember tho condition of congress
nnd affairs when everybody was per
mitted to start a bank nnd print Blip3 of
paper called m ".oy to tho extent of his
inclination. Millions on millions of moro
or lebs worthless inonoy floated nround
tho country, nobody knowing precisely
what tho bills ho had in his pocket would
bo received for nt tho bank, nor indeed
whether they wero genuiuo or counter
feit. Tho Republican party is fighting in
this cnmpaigu for protection to Ameri
can industries nnd American lalor. Tho
Democratic party is fighting for free
trade. Mr. Cloveland dodges the issue.
Tho Republican party is fighting in this
campaign for honest money dollars of
equal value, nnd that valuo 100 cents on
tho dollar. Thu Democratic party is
ilghtiug for wildcat money an unlimit
ed issno of meaningless paper. On this
issue Mr. Cleveland is sikne.

Lease, who wns with tlio party, thus tells
"No, I did not speak at Macon," she
said, "Although I went there with the
intention of ko doing. After supper ut
tho Lanier IIouso General Wcavor went

General Weaver attempted to speak
