Wilson, the tariff man, is sick. So are the American labor-
Cleveland's Wilson tariff bill and soup kitchens are on top
at the present writing.
The English. French and German manufacturers are happy.
The Wilson bill has passed Grover Cleveland's, Congress.

Silver is the poor man's money, and the gold barons do not
want us to have any of it. We must use double eagles.

Gold-Bug Cleveland, has gotten wheat down to the lowest
point ever known-—and the cattle market, the bottom has

Coal miners should make a little idol of Cleveland. Isn't his
right bower Atkinson telling us how we can live on 14 cents' a
day? As Ananias, Jr.¿ says, "won't we get fatter by starving to
death." - 1 ■■
We heard a nice little story the other day of a congressman
, who bought'a team of horses for three hundred dollars, and gave
his.note for them, and the next day sold them for two hundred
cash. The-question is, how much did he make? ..

Our tariff'reform President has a wide experience in the im-
portation of merchandise, and consequently knows all about the,
workings of a tariff. It is said he went from Buffalo to Canada
.at least three:times and imported "wet goods."
Grover C-, tell us—honest Quaker—how much you love
Dave Hill. You really didn't want Hornblower and Peckhatn
confirmed, did you, now? And also tell usf ''please, if there
isn't offices enough in your gift to bring Vest and Cockerell
: around into the fold?
When you pay 10 cents a pound for sugar instead of 5, as
now, remember Cleveland's pocket-Congress. We know that
passage of Scripture which feads "when a man smites you on
the right cheek, turn to him the other also." That's Scripture -
but it isn't our style. iT ,, . 7 . •,,, •

The London British Trade Journal ¡says: "The obnoxious
•McKinley tariff will be changed, and a less dog-in-the-maSiger
policy adopted; this will benefit our home manufactures." Yes,
.if changed, .it will, give your laborer^york at pauper wages, but,
"mine friendt," how is that going to benefit our labor? If that
McKinley tariff is "obnoxious" to. you, it strikes us that this coun-
try wants it continued.. We are not looking after your interest

just now—"charity begins at home." 'See?
Why should we not be happy? To be sure,'cotton is low,
cattle going down, wheat worth almost nothing', money scarce,
thousands upon thousands of our people out of work, many liv-
ing on charity, no money to buy food or clothing, those that
have work are being cut down in wages—but yet we have
Cleveland's gold-bug friends say we do not know anything
about finance. Let's give 'em some pointers next election.
Let's ask every man up for congress this single question: "Are
you in favor of free coinage of silver at a ration of 16 to, 1?"
and make him answer it, too, or send him to the demnition bow
wows—with our votes.

A Pittsburg man has gone to Japan to open up coal mines,
and.says he can get good labor at 10 cents a day., f Grover
Cleveland's Congress has taken the duty of 75 cents a ton off
coal—is it to raise the price of labor for the Japan coolie, or to
bring our coal miners down to their level? Let our Tammany
Democrat answer this. • r ■ .i'f'

Wilson, the author of the "free trade, cutting the price of
labor bill," is sick and has gone down to'Mexico. If he is halt"
as sick as the American laborers are ofliim arid his free trade,
the chances are he will not come back. A backwoods shoe-
maker can't make a good watch, neither can a one-horse coun-
try lawyer make a good tariff bill for 70 000 000 people. , .
STRAIGHT TO THE POINT.
C. C. Shayne once a fiery Democrat," talks sound sense in
pithy words. He says:
"I believe in Republican principles. 1 believe they, are
the correct i deas. ...for., the. government...-of._a self-supporting
and self-governing people, and history records that this
country has always been most prosperous when under the
control of the Republican party. I believe in protection—the
future hope of the Republic. 1 believe it to be the duty of
every American to sustain his own'country in preference to any
other. Every native-born American with the birthright of
liberty as an inheritance should be proud of his manhood,
proud of his birthright—a title which is grander and nobler than
that of king or duke, for every American is a king, and every
woman, God bless her, is a queen. He should be proud that
he lives in the grandest country in the world and is protected by
the best government on the' face of the earth. He of all men,
should sustain the principles which redound to the benefit of the
land of his birth.
The Afherican by adoption should lay aside all allegiance to
foreign monarchs and foreign powers and stand up manfully for
the country of his adoption. He should sustain the principles
of protection to American industries, which have been the means,
of giving employment to thousands. He should become imbued
with the American idea and"do all in his'power for the benefit
of his adopted country in preference to the country from whence
An American citizen should appreciate the great power con-
ferred upon him as a lawmaker. Every voter is a soverign. He
is master of tlr; situitibn. By his will servants are placed in
power or removed. By his will he raises the bars of protectibn
which foster and encourage the industries of his country, where-
by3 thie AfaeHcatt-"workman receives American wages; or by his
will he removes the bars of protection which bring about a con-
dition that compels the American workman to work for the same
wages as paid to the unfortunate poor workman on the other
side of the Atlantic."
Right, you are, "C C," and down in this ••Lone Star state"
there are many men who think as you do—"such men as Cel. R.
D. Hunter. Winfield Scott. Martin Casey, and hosts of others,
men of the same stripe are putting on their thinking caps, are
