I The Plucky Ishpeming Editor Thinks He Was Not Fairly Defeated and He WUl Contest. SpMInl to tlio Chicago News Record. ISHPEMING, Mich., Uoc. 4.—Mi-i J. Maurice Finn, democratic candidate for congress in this district at the. late election, arrived homo from Detroit yesterday. The matter of his entering a contest from this district was fully discucscd by the leading democrats of Moth. 310 to Brown, will wvost- and wit- will the laurels of for falls. ropub-. deride republicans are Ptf- are on the state in a conference hold Thursday in that city, and while Mr Finn refused to say exactly what • would bo done, enough was learned to satisfy your correspondent that a contest' would bo made. It is alleged to be a notorious fact that tickets wore used outside of the booths; that •inspectors marked tho ballots with their nails in the square under the republican vignette, handing tile tickets to.votera who could not road or write, with the place marked where they were to put the mark, which in. sureda straight republican vote. Mr. Finn is strongly in favor of an early session of congress and expressed the opinion that one would bo called. He said: "Tho democrats cannot wail until next December before they act. If they do they will iind no money in the treasury to pay the September pensions of 1898. One of the greatest problems 'the democrats have to solve is to provide for tho profligacy ot the Harrison administration. If tho soldiers do not get their usual allowance next September tho democrats will be blamed for it. Tho McKinley law, while increasing tho rate-of tariff taxation, has at the same time reduced the revenue, as is well-nigh prohibitive in many cases, and the only revenue goes into the pockets of fat-frying manufacturers. Yes, the democrats must act, and at once, or the people will act again, .Not been republican in tho and If strain, would in all rn- doesn't him board mis- tomorrow The for in to be only must the democracy act on the question of tariff taxation but on the money question as well." ^•Mrs-Finn maintained;'editovally and: from the stump in his canvass, that the international monetary conference, now in session in Brcssels, would not agree, and "when that condition becomes a fact," said Mr. Finn, "and not a belief, then tho people of tho United States must act. Tho Sherman sliver-purchase act of July 14, 1800, must bo repealed. Tho democracy demanded it in its national platform, the business interests of the country demand it.and with all those questions staring us in the face I cannot soo where tho question comes in on the duty of President-elect Cleveland as to calling congress together. The busi ness men,of tho country elected him, they havo confidence in .him, knowing that no measure can become a law whi,lo. h.o is. president, and an extra session, will i.n no. way aiVeet business and should bo called." Mr. Finn opposes the removal of the duty on iron ore on tho ground that we cannot lose tho revenue that foreign ores bring tho government, and because they land at points on thoAtlantic coast where none of our ore goes or can ever go because of the cost of rail transportation. While it would slightly lesson the cost of raw material at these point*, yet wo are abJU> to. compete with the world in tho. yrodiuetioa, of iron anil steel from aw own oves v aud»ho duty on f.ojr<fign ores 'becomes, only a sonruo of revenue to. th.e government. . so the of in bo one of feet the
