THURSDAY , NOV. Ill , 1809.
The best kind of campaigning is
faithfulness in oflico. Witness the
result in the rc-clootiou of Judge
Armour and J. J. Tooloy ,
Tom Whitchead has the diatic-
tion of being elected constable on
the republican ticket in Algernon
township. It is said that ho ia the
first republican that has ovorootne
the pop majority in that ] township
since the organization of the pop
Olmirman Royse , of the republi.
can county contra ! committed has
again demonstrated h'R abililtty as
a political organizer. This year he
was limited in funds and had to
depend very largely upon the loyal
ty of his county workers for results.
The county | in 1800 showed a
majority for populist governor
of over 1,100 votes. Last year with
a thousand less votes east , Poyntor
had a majority of 300. This
year ho had to meet not only the
largo majority of the poj ulist party
but they had at their command
unlimited moans to conduct their
campaign. They had not only
assessed all the ofllco holders of the
county and state , but tho- lady em
ployoe. who arc working on'a salary
ol $20.00 a month had to contribute
$3 00 of that to the committee or
lose their job. Besides this Coin.
Harvey canvassed the stale and
collected funds for campaign pur
poses in notes and cash , whiuh was
apportioned to the several oommities
for election purposes. With all
thosoioddd against chairman , Royso
got out the largest republican vote
that has bocn polled for years , and
cut the pop majority , down so low
that the pops are even afraid to
orow. With all their money and a
united front , Judge Armour pulled
through \vitha. _ handsome majority
of 2-10 , while Talbot only * liked 82
of winning out. ' George , VanAnt-
worp and Davies were defeated by a
little moro tban 100 each. Lot the

- With this issue the REPUULIOAN
gives a tabulated statement of the
vote or Ouster county as < shown by
the official canvass. Considering
the large vote cast , wo regard the
showing very favorable for the re
publican ticket The vole east woe
over a thousand more than was
east in the county lust year. With
the aamo vote in previous years the
populist majorities ranged from
500 to 1,300. The vote this year
proves that the republican candi
dates were not only strong in the
estimation of the people , but that
the populist p.arty in the county is
not as strong by 700 votes an it was
when S A. llolcomb was elootod
governor five and three years ago.
The big vote received by Armour ,
Talbot , George , Kennedy , VanAut
worp , Ohittiok and Dr. Davies is
an evidence that the republican
convention made no mistakn in
their selection. Wo have boon
personally acquainted with the sue
oossful candidates Armstrong ,
Sohnonnger , Orr , Tooloy and Os-
born , for a number of years and in
all that time have known nothing
detrimental to their character or
qualifications and believe they were
generally regarded by all as good
citizens and competent to Gil the
aeveral offices for which they have
boon chosen. This being the situation -
tion , it proves that their small ma
jorities was not the result of per-
Bonal objeotione to thorn , but rather
to the principles of the party with
which they affiliate. The republi

Lnlior'n Liberal Slutro in the Prosperity
of the Country.
The American Protective Tariff
League has just published the result
of its canvass of 1,057 establish
ments to ascertain how far tie
general prosperity of the country
liad reached American wage-
earners. These establishments re
ported a gain of 75,7f > 4 in the
number of hands employed last
March ever there employed in the
establishments in March , 1805 ,
seven months after the enactment
of the Wilson Tariff. The follow
ing table shows in a most con
densed form the Btory of how wage
earners are sharing in ' .ha revival
of industrial activity :
Number of Imtidi employed ;
Much. 1895 101.732

Avon go vrngon per capita :

March , 1890 ; w 80

It is dtffcult to say whiuh feature
in this table ought to bo tbo subject
for the widest national felicitation
the number employed or the higher
wages * paid. For our part of the
facts that nearly 40 per cant , more
persons have employment in 1,057
establishments now than in March ,
1805 , seems of far greater benefit to
the country than the faot that the
increased number is rcueving 10
per oont. moro wages per capita
than the reduced foroos received
four years ago. It moans rial

And yet Senator Jones thinks
there is no prosperity iu sight , and
W. J. Bryun still sticks to free
silver as the panacea for evils that
affictod labor before the campaign
of 1800. Chicago "Times-Herald. "
The rcflult of the "off year" ' that
is always BO much dreaded by the
party in power , that is , the last off
yeai before the national electionis [ ,
a triumphant odorsomaut of the
MoKinloy adminstration. As the
states now staud , there is ouo IOBK
to the republican column * Mary
land with eight olootoral votes.
From the democratic and fusion
column of 1890 , are now cussing ,
Kansas with twelve electoral votes ,
South Dakota with lou\ electoral
votes and Wyoming with three elec
toral votes.
In 1800 the olootoral vote stood
MoKinley , 271 , Bryan , 170. By
flukes in Kentucky and California ,
Bryan got two moro olootoral voteb
than ho was entitled to. Elimina
ting those , the vote should have
stood , MoKinley 237 and Bryan 174
Had this been a presidential year
tbo vote would stand according to
the changes made in the off years ,
hoth partya having practically re-
nominated tin candidates of ' 80 ,
MoKinloy 284 , Bryun 103.

Sum Jones on Prosperity.
Sam Jones , the pio'uroiquo ex-
hortcr , occasionally stops his talks
on religion long enough to spsak a
liltlo on worrtly affairs. A few
days ago ho was proaoh'uig in a
town in Goorgio and , dipping into
politics , cot off the folbwing :
The biggest fool in the world is
the ono who stands up and argucn
against facts. I was talking to one
of these old free silver loons a few
days ago and called his attention
to the great prosperity whiuh has
oomo upon our country , mills and
shops and mines running on full
time , and I said turly prosperity
has como to our land again. lie

said , "Its mighty hard to hit noth

More Work for llio
The large orders placed for steel
rails will keep the furnaces and
mills busy the greater part of next
yea' . Not that 1,500,000 tons of
rails represent a very largo proportion
tion of the capacity , but when
added to other business already in
sight it moons that furnace capac
ity will bo taxed to the utmost , as
it has been this year. The heavy
traffic of this year and last has won
upon the railroads , rendering new
rails necessary , and , at the same
time , yielding revenue to pay for
them. Now the railroads must
contribute their quota towards
keeping the mills busy. Thus does
prosperity act and reaot through an
endless series , constantly augment
ing the tide , unless something hap
pens to destroy confidence , which
is the corner atone ot all business
and commerce. Pittsburg "Dis

Value of u Homo Dcumml.
There was a certain farmer who
in the days of Olovolandism voted
for Tariff Reform. His fancy had
boon caught by the glowing pic
lures of marvelous prosperity which
the Free-Traders and the Tariff
Koformnrs had painted to 'describe '
the glorious days when under Free.
Trade wo should have possession of
the markets of the world- Some
little time after the triumph of the
advocates of Tariff Reform in 1892 ,
when the country , instead of enjoying -
joying the overflowing pr.-sperity
predicted , was suffering from the
hard times brought on by the down
fall of the Protective system , this
sauio farmer took a wagon loud of
garden truck to the nearest town
for sale. The ouoo thrifty town ,
which hid formerly been such a
prood market , was a scone of idoluuss
The mills in the town were shut
down , and many of the houses were
vaoont and no body wanted the
farmers products. Ho was obliged
to drive homo again , taking his
garden truck with him. As ho
jogged along in disgust , one of the
townsmen shouted out to him : " What
did you bring your stuff here for ?
Why dent you hall your load to
the nearest port , hire a boat and
ship it acoross the ocean ? You
know you have boon howling for a
foroigu market. "
What the farmer said in reply
is not on record , but it IB not un
likely that the lesson struck home ,
and that ho oauio to realize that it
was money iu bis pocket and in
that of every other farmer to have
a market for farm products almotl
at their own doors , and that the
propperlty of the wage oaruor in
the town moans the mlo of the
farmer's products and the pros
perity of the farmer himself.

The following extracts , from a
letter we publish by request of N.
M. Morgin of Callaway , gives a
view of the Filipino and the situa
tion in the Philippine islands by
ono who has spent some time in the
East and should know whereof he
speaks. The writer of the letter is
not a republican , but his vicars and
observations scorn to juitify the
position taken by true Americans.
He says :
Yon have doubtless hoard of At
kinson who claims to represent the
sentiment of the American people
and who advocates the disgraceful
policy of completely abandoning
American sovereignty in the Phl ;
ippino islands , wrested from Spain
by the prowess of our soldiers.
You will ask why the triumph of
our army and navy should have
such a miserable result. First , this
man with both rugged talents and
Y'lnkeo shrewdness appeals to Am
erican honor. Ho claims that ibo
representatives of uur government.
assured the rebels that the presi
dent of the United States would
allow them to establish their inde
pendence not merely of the Spin-
ish , but of all governments , such as
are recognized among the enlight
ened nations. Ho skilfully touches
the chord of sentiment , especially
among his friends , by quoting from
the Declaration of Independence
that governments "dorivu their just
powers from the consent of the
governed. " What madness to pre
tend to govern savages vuth ab
stract ideas , rhetorical Generalities
and incomplete notions of equality ?
* * * But this persou reaches
the climax of impudence in assort
ing that the naked and half starved
guerrillas under Aguinnl'io , armed
with bows and arrows and spears ,
except a small nucleus equipped by
our liberality , aio competent to re-
gut for a long limu the disciplined
forces of tho'United States. * *
* And in addition , the interests of
humanity require that wo take pos
session and guarantee to the ignor
ant and disorderly population so
long in a chaotic state of rebellion
the blessings of stable government.
The Filipinos are a widely separat
ed and disoordant community , and
an independent nation composed of
such elements is an Utopian dream.
If loft to themselves they would
doubtless fall a prey to some nation

notions of honoi which seems to in
