MEMBERS; OF THE GENTLER SEX
WHO ARE REPUBLICANS. "
Th Story of
able Career Mrs. J. Ellen Fatter, the '
Cualnuaav-ef the Women's Xatloeal.Be.
. publican Coeninlttee, and Others.
Among- tbe names of those who have
dobe much for their country and who are,
deserving of honor daring' life and loving'
remembrance after death are certainly
those of many' women. Near the top of
-this list should be placed that of Anna
.Dickinson. Her work in the cause of
emancipation required as much -moral
courage and determination as that of any
man. who helped decide the question on
the battle field, and probably did as much
r perhaps more toward the freeing of
tho slaves as that of any soldier who
fought and died in the great cause of
liberty and unity: Certainly it speaks
well for the Republican party to" have
such a. woman as this working in its in
tcrcsts. The war is over, slav
ery is abolished and all men have been
declared free and equal;' but who shall
say the present fight, although it has not
been accompanied by the clash of arms.
Is not as all important to the interests
and well being of the country as that
which was fought a quarter of a century
ago? That meant protection of American
homes and .people against despotism and
lawlessness. This means protection of
American homes and people against pau
per labor, the offspring of European des
potism aud English, free trade. Against
these monsters Anna Dickinson is exert
ing every energy.
Anna 'Dickinson was born in Philadel
phia in 1843. Her parents were Quakers
of strong anti-slavery convictions. Her
father, however, was overtaken by finan
cial disaster, and died, when.. Anna was
only 10 years old, and left his family in
poverty. She developed into a cross and
willful child, who could not be taught to
obey. She was educated at various
Quaker schools, and was considered a
most unruly pupil. At the.age of 14, sho
wrote for Garrison's The Liberator, and
at about the same time some verses for
minor magazines which she has never ac
knowledged. When she reached the age
of 17, it became necessary for her to leave
school and begin to earn money. Sho
taught, she copied legal documents and
she worked in the mint. It is said that
once when Wendell. Phillips lectured : in
Philadelphia, she scrubbed a sidewalk for
a quartet with which to buy a ticket to
tho lecture. Afterward the manager who
had charge of Phillips gave Anna $ 400 a
night for her fee, twice as much as the
silver tongued Yankee had ever received.
MKS. FOSTER. EMILY CHACE.
The first publicexhibitlon of her wonder
ful 'gift was at a meeting 'of progressive,
friends, interested in. women's rights.
One of the speakers one night made a
violent and brutal attack on the abilities'
of her sex. His words had a terrible ef
fect on her. As soon as he sat down, she
rose, and advancing toward him with
pointed finger, poured out such a torrent
of invective that he slunk from the hall
like a whipped cur. The eloquence of tho
fiery girl iu short skirts astounded tho
audience no more than it did -the girl hcr-
.6clf. Her reputation was made from. that
time, although her family bitterly op
posed her course in going on the public
lecture platform. Her speeches in favor
of the .freeing of the slaves will bo remem
bered by many as long as they live. She
has earned a great deal of money, but she
has supported oil her relatives who were
needy, and has ever cheerfully given
when she has been able.. She has little
left. This, in brief, is the wonderful
story of the woman, whom the Demo
cratic press allude to as a "petticoated
ranter." and who is now laboring-for Har
rison. Morton aud protection.
Mrs: J. Ellen Foster is another woman
worker in the present campaign. She
was one of thoso who were instrumental
in the formation of tho "Woman's Na
tional Republican committee" in New
York. Mrs. Foster went to England re
cently, and was so impressed by tha
downtrodden condition of European work?
Ingmen, and the consequent sufferings of
their families, and at the same time so
firmly convinced that the bringing
about of the same or nearly the same
state of affairs in this country would be
only a matter of time should Democracy
and British free trade prevail, that sn
conceived the .idea of utilizing the unap
plied force of Republican women in the
interests of the Republican party. She is
also an ardent Prohibitionist and believer
lu woman suffrage, but the organization
of women which she originated champions
these reforms only so far as they are ad
vocated bv the Republican party "and set
forth in the Republican platform.
Mrs. Emily Chace, of Rhode Island, also
believes that woman has her place in pol
itics. She is the secretary of Mrs. Fos
ter's committee, and is the wife of Gen.
Thomas Chace, a. well known and ardent
Republican. Mrs. Chace is a social leader,
is gentle and refined and is oiot in 'the
ordinary sense a public worker, but 6ho
willingly gives her time and energy to
her country at a time when so much is at
Mrs: Henry S. Lane, of Indiana, is the
widow of one of the country's noblest
workers, Henry S. Lane, the congressman,
senator, governor, orator and honest man.
She, too, is devoting herself to the success
of the arty for which her husband did
so much. She is tho sister of Gen. Lew
Wallace's wife, end is loved for her gen
tla character, as well as respected Tor her
work in tho cauce, which wins, the ap
proval asdsau-iiioapf all patriotic people.
Laeycnd tho influence of current politics,
she desires ealyto servo her country by

Gen. Batter on the Political Imbcs.
Gen. Benjamin F. Butler recently ad
dressed a large audience in Tremont tern-,
pie, Boston, upon tho. tariff and fisheries
-questions. Theoretically, -lie -.said, free
trade between all nations, as between all
cien, is correct in principle. That is, if
all nations in all things were exactly on
the same footing. But such conditions
f equality cannot exist among nations,
aud therefore, all theories upon tho ques
tion of free trade become useless". Said
Gen. Butler: "I cite the president .on my
side as against free trade: but I must con
.'ess at the sanio tune that tho president
.seems to try to get as near being a free
trader as he can.' I belie vu if he had-observed
and known, as 1 know, how much
a protective tariff has done for American,
workingmen, his tariff message would
never have been penned.. It is not his.

that he did not know the facts." Ex

The total appropriations for 1889 amount
to $308,392.21X5. In 1885, the last year of

was $195,710,583. but this did not include
a river and harbor bill, and later the pen

A PLAIN TARIFF LESSON.
The Ttlfiereace Between the Condition el
Worklngnen Here and Abroad
One day, a year ago, I saw an intelligent
mechanic planing a. piece of. iron in a Bel-,
gian machine shop. He was a very skilled
workman, and received' eight' eents per
day, a high price for a mechanic on the"
continent. When I told. him. that bur'
mechanics, received from two to three dol
lars per day for the same work, he seemed
susprised and said:
"And pro visions are .cheaper in America
and I could live cheaper there than here?"
"How do you know that?" Tasked
" VBecause,?" ;said he. "I- buy American'
bacon aud American flour- here, in Brus
sels. American bacon is a penny a pound
cheaper, hero than .our bacon, and then
your provisions have, to-be brought" here.
Fresh pork is. sold for-18 cents per pound
at the market .here, while' I can buy your
'American bacon for 11 cents. I could live"
on less -money, in America, than I can
here. T know I could make a dollar go
farther there where pork aud flour is.
cheap than here in' Belgium, provided. I
ate no more there than here.'.'
"Yes," I said, "you could live -there
cheaper than here if you ate the same
things, but. you would not do it. Now
what do.you eat here?" . .- ".
"Well, sir," ho said, as he. placed his
left hand on his brow thoughtfully,- "I
have five children seven mouths to feed.
Now I buy seven pounds of American
bacon a week, besides American flour.
My wife cuts this bacon into seven pieces..
She hashes it lip, puts in potatoes,
mangel wurzels, turnips and -s4fta in
some. flour, and.it makes a nice stew; -We
eat this.stcw three tiinesaday."
"Do you have coffee?"
"6h;jio- we can't afford that."
- "Pies and eakes?" "
"You' are joking!'
"Do you have, butter?"
"Oh,no; we have plain bread. That's
I told this nierchaut that iu slave times
in America seven slaves would have re
ceived three and one-half pounds of bacon,
each, or twenty-four and one-half pounds
for the sevcu.
''And my family of seven freemen only
oafseven pounds!"' he exclaimed: ,
"That is it," I said.
"And seven soldiers--' in' the. American
army draw twenty-eight' pounds of pork
aTweek to our seven, --.'"'
"'But," I continued, ' "our American
mechanics who get two and. three' dollars
a. .day because of our protective tariff
often say "that, a dollar will go farther in
Europe than in America;''
. "We 'do make it go' farther' said the'
mechanic, as his eyes moistened, "but we"
starve ourselves to do it.- Tho -question
, with us is not how to make or save money.
Dutsnauwc always navpeuougn tocati.
Shall we i never starve?"
1 ' "It is coId,.-I'see," I continued, "aud. do
i you wear no woolen coat?"
"Woolen coatl" ue exclaimed. -You.
are joking. again; woolen c6att"-.'heTO
peated half musingly. "Woolen coat?
Why gentlemen wear them -in Belgium.
I and. France, not workingmen. Working. '
! men -wear cotton - blouses. If I should
' wear a woolen coat, the other, workmen.
! would laugh at me. We do make a dollar
go farther In burope than in America,
surely., and we do it- by -scrimping in
clothing and food."
When I got home to America I went into
a mechanics' boarding house. in Fort Plain.
The men were dressed in woolen coats, like
gentlemen in Brussels. Their wages were
$2.50 per day. instead of eighty cents. Tho
table groaned with roast beef, boiled
chicken; white bread, coffee, butter- and
cake. It was' a dinner for a prince hi
Belgium. No one asked, ' 'Shall we always
have food or shall, wo never actually'
starve?" They talked about buying
houses. "I shall put $200 in tho bank
this year," said one' Another wore a
diamond in his scarf. All had watches,
and many lighted cigars after the meal
that cost more, than the poor --Belgian's
whole meal, and then remarked:
"They say a. dollar goes further iu
Eurcpe.whcro they have free trade and
low wages than it does here . where we
have, protective tariff and high' wages."'
I noticed one handsome mechanic didn't
eat at all. He looked at tho chicken,
clawed over the pie and finally sipped his
coffee and said:
"I've got dyspepsia, boys. Too many .
fried oysters last night, I'm off my feed.
I guess I'll take some.ApolIuiaris water
and then smoke'
"Yes," I thought, "a dollar does go. .
farther in Europe than in" America, for
the price, of that ApoUinaris. water. and
cigar would have gone a- whole day in
Belgium with the big family of a poor
mechanic whose labor is unprotected. The
status of the Belgium .mechanic results
from 200 years of free trade." . The status
of the American mechanic results from
forty years of protection."

If any labor interest or organization in
tnis country has declared in favor of free
trade or the Mills bill the'fact has escaped
our attention.- Certainly no prominent
labor interest pr organization has done so.
On the contrary, a number of very prom
inent' ones have protested against free
trade ..and the Muls bill. Among these
may be mentioned the Stooe' and Granite

Glass Blowers and Window Glass
workers, the American Fl:. it Glass Work

If there is any prominent representative
of the labor interest making speeches for
' Cleveland, we are not. aware of the fact.
But. Mr, Charles Litchnjan. late general
secretary of the Knights of Labor; Mr.
John Jarrett, an active worker In the
cause of labor, and Mr. Robinson, national
master- workman cf the brass workers, are
all making speeches for Harrison. The

name is Roger Q.. Mill's. Watterson was

at East St. Louis, he pledged, the
Democratic party,' If it got. the presidency
and.both branches of congress, to put raw
materials all on. tho -free list, ana. then,
.said, he, "We-willputourown intelligent '
and skillful and productive labor in this
country upon a plane of equality with the
laborers of all other countries." ,
"There is truth in.wine,'"' says an old
proverb, and there is truth in other kinds
of intoxication. Mr. Mills, who is tem
perate in -his habits, was not intoxicated
witli liquors, but he was intoxicated, by
the presence "of William R. Morrison and
ten thousand other' enthusiastic Demo
c'ra'ts. Missouri is safely Democratic "and
Illinois as safely Republican, and perhaps
Mr! Mills, thought it did not matter so
much what.he said at East St. Louis' as .it
would if "ho had said it in New. York,' .
New. Jersey, or Connecticut. And. the St: :

clapped 'and stamped and howled and -.roared
with delight at the words of the
man from Corsicuna, Texas.
'How does- the intelligent, skillful and

prospect of being' 'put on a plane of ,
equality, with the laborers of - other coun
tries? What do our naturalized citizens,
who came over, here, to escape from the -condition
of the, laborers of other coun

that he and his party thought the labor
ing, men. of other countries were better off
than those of this; but nothing is plainer
than that lie knows . nothing about it.
But he knows what he wants to do and he
Mills' threat should insure Cleveland's
defeat. Every naturalized citizen should

What n TBrKlah Wericingasan Says r Free
Trade and lta Keanlta.
The following letter has been received
by the Home Market club Of Boston:
DearSib Thanks for the papers youi
have sent me.: 1 was in America for about
two months" last summer, sent over by our
association, to see for myself whether the
working classes of your country were bet
ter off under protection than we are under .
free trade, and the conclusion I came to
That any person who has to earn a Uv
ing in America as a producer .must first
become crazy before he becomes a free
trader, and tbefanaers must be the crazi
est of the whole lot to think of such, a
thing.- Before any of your workingmen,
cither. engaged, in manufacturing or agri
culture, talk about free trade. let them,
send one of their number over here, to see.
what it is doing for this country. . Let
him w&Jk about for.six. months looking
for .a job until his coat gets ragged ana
his shoes get thin, and he gets the thin
nest of all, and everywhere tie' asks for.
work' be will be told that- the Germans
and Belgians are doing the work cheaper
than be can do it; then let them .send for
him home again, and hear what he says
about free trade. ".'.-.
If it is. surplus revenue that is causing
the trouble, send it to some free trade
country. You never knew them to have
a surplus; or.. if you don't like to do that,;
take it out to sea. and sink it, or bury it;'
or burn it; or do anything in fact rather
than adopt free rade. that is tossy if
you do not want foreign competition to.
ruin your manufacturing -industries, and
by so doing ruin your farmers by robbing
themjof their home market
