Croto, Fairmont and Hastings, and
hero wo passed through a narrow
trip of country whioh appeared to
he less favored than any sootion wo
had traveled over, and tho corn crop
will hardly bo up to tho averago in
tho vicinity of Creto and Fairmont.

Ono Ycnr'ft Trial.
It was n year ngo last Wednesday j
that tho now tariff went into operation
as to most of its features. Tho most
important of all its provisions, tho
radioal chango in duties on woolen
goods, did not tako effcot until eight
months ago. But most Atnoricans
havo had timo enough to dotcrmino
from personal oxperionoo how far tho
ohango has holped them. It is a
question they cannot answer, as by
this time thoy havo learned without
looking about to boo how it baa affect
ed their neighbors, for it is tho cor
norstono of tho protcotivo policy
that a gonuino and lasting prosperity
cannot be realized by any class or
body of people, if thereby tho rest aro
impoverished or degraded. Tho frco
trado policy, essentially selfish in itp
blind individualism, puts out of mind
tho question whether industries will
be destroyed or depressed, whether
works will bo closed and American
workers driven from employment, and
socks only tho satisfaction of personal
wants nt tho lowest cost.
Wo havo not had experience of that
policy, nor ot any consistent approach
to it. But enough of ohango as to
many important industries has bcon
made to give tho pcoplo practical ex
perience of its effects. So great has
been tho depression of industries that
defenders of tho new tariff would one
and all angrily protest if tho volumo
of business during tho past year, or
tho production of industries, or tho
earnings of labor for tlio year, should
bo compared with thoso of any pre
vious year of prosperity. They would
dcclaro it utterly unfair to tako tho
past year ns a whole, when thcro has
been improvement toward tho close.
It is equally unfair to tako for com
parison only tho past few months of
recuperation, since it was settled that
no further chango of .tariff would bo
made by Democrats, and that tho Re
publicans would hcrcaftor control tho
work. But yet. taking the bc.t re
sults attained sinco Democratic de
feat brought this recovery as a mens
uro of tho improvement made possiblo
by that defeat, nnd assuming that
thoso best results will bo maintained
in tho futuro, What do tho pcoplo
think about It?
They have scon a great many idlo
works started again sinco n Democratic
Congress adjourned. But they also
soo in overy oounty and almost every
town many othors whioh aro still idle.
It is not a matter about whioh com
plcto statistical accounts arc possiblo
but it is kriown to every voter and
every business man what tho facts
arc within his own personal observa
tion. Not only aro many establish
ments idlo, their former hands having
been forced to scok a livelihood in
other occupations, but of thoso in
operation comparatively few aro yet

working full timo with full forco. It
is acauBO of glad rejoicing, and tho
good news is quickly soot by wiro all
over the land, when this or that estab
lishment finds its business sufficient
to warrant working as many hours
nnd with as many hands as in pros
porous years. How far reoovery has
advanced, taking nil kinds of business
togother, may perhaps bo inferred by
the paj mollis through ulenring houses
which in August, with unusually
largo deferred settlements from pre
vious months becauso of tho great de
lay last spring, and with extraordinary
speculation in progress here and at
tho West, woro uovartliulcsi !i per
cent smaller that in 1892.
Another faot of which pcoplo will
judgo from their personal knowlcdgo
is that tho wages of labor and tho
profits of business aro not what thoy
wero in days of prosperity. That
something like half a million of work
ers havo received emo advanco in
wages sinco tho timo of greatest de
pression is most ohocring, and yot
cvorybody known that within his per
sonal acquaintance most wage-earners
aro still receiving less than they usod
to receive. Tho great striko in wool
en and oarpot mills whioh havo failed,
tho strikes of iron miners and of cloth
ing workers, and the threatened striko
of ootton workors, with many others
of less importanoo, all boar witness to
tho samo faot, that labor is not yet ro
ooiving muoh leas than in 1802, beforo
the countrv chose to havo a "ohango. '
If tho twonty million wago-carncrs
oannot earn as much money as thoy
used to cam, neither oan thoy epond
as muoh, and thus iomo shrinkage in
tho volumo of busincps is unavoidably
folt oven by thoso whoso conditions
aro most fortunato. Nor will mer
chants or manufacturers hesitato to
admit that thoir profits in almost cycry
branch of business havo been out
TIicbo aro tho faots which will gov
orn the action of intelligent voters in
great number. Then wero promised
better times if thoy would givo tho
Democratic party a trial and sco the
practical results. Thoy havo tried it
a year, and it may bo seriously doubt
ed whether ono man in n hundred, in
any part of tho country, imagines
ttiat ho has been benefited by it in tho
least. But thcro aro millions who
know that they have been iujurcd.
