The crowding doivn of the cost of the product crowds down the workingman who makes the product. Briefly the Republican party advocates the increase of wages while the Democratic party advocates the buying- of cheap products no matter how much the workingman who makes them may suffer. It was the party of slave labor in this country and it is now the advocate of maintaining the slavery of labor abroad by the purchase of cheap labor products.

The higher the wages the less powerful the capitalist, the lower the wages the greater purchasing power' of the millionaire and the less the prosperity of everybody else. That is why money loaners become Democrats. Wages cannot be higher in this country than in Europe without a protective tariff to prevent the competition of products made by half paid | labor. That is why Republicans favor a protective tariff. If you want high wages and prosperity for the masses vote the Hepub- lican ticket. But here comes in two of the striking results of these two policies. The Republican policy has invariably cheapened the product whil-j increasing wages by encouraging American ingenuity and enterprise while the Democratic policy has increased tho price of the product while decreasing wages by giving the manufacture into the hands of foreign monopolists. Thcy Make Unreasonable Demands for the Purpose of Discrediting It—Democratic Truths Are Unpleasant to TStem. Peck Undismayed. The manner in which the report of Commissioner Peck, of the New York state bureau of labor statistics, has been received by the managers of Mr. Cleveland's 1 campaign strikingly proves the familiar charge against the Democracy that it ^essentially a calamity party. Mr. PecE is a Democrat; he has always been a Democrat. He vras appointed to be commissioner of the labor bureau of New York on the date of its creation siate:;--JaT.'Jti-anner- ; gays/inai; no had a talk with" Senator, Hill, bni declined to divulge the natnre^of it.

Gov't Report •*• — -w\s wi j.i/o x^icttLiyil ^April 4,1883, by Grover Cleveland, who was then -governor of New York. He has performed the duties of his office so admirably, as-that each successive Democratic governor "has successively reappointed him. In 18S6 he received his second commission from David B. Hill; in 1880 Governor Hill renewed the commission, and last May Governor Flower appointed Mm for the fourth time. Mr. Peckls distinguished character as a statistician and the successful and important work he has done were recognized last May by his election to the office O f president of the American Association of Labor Commissioners at the association's convention in Denver. Mr. Pick succeeded in that office the well known statistician, Carroll D. Wright. It thus appeal's that the same high opinion of Mr. Peck's character, ability and | record was entertained by his fellow commissioners of labor throughout the Union as has been expressed by Mr Cleveland, Mr. Hill and Mr. Flower successively during the last ten years. TThat Peck Really Did Tell. Three weeks ago Mr. Peck issued his ninth annual report. Necessarily it dealt with the conditions of labor in the stato of New York since the McKinley bill went into effect. It is Mr. Peck's duty 'to ascertain from year to year Low American workingmen have faired in wages and production. He corresponded -»-^XL O AAA r- i ... * CARLISLE ANSWERED, Cost of I.ivin~ Kednced ijy the McKinley Law. ' Senator Carlisle's ingenious but not entirely ingenuous argument, in which he^attempted to show that the cost of living had been increased by the McKinley tariff, has been ably answered by Senator Hiscock. That gentleman, in a speech in the senate. on Ang. l, completely swept away Senator. Carlisle's arguments. He showed' that the ooly increase in the cost of living in the twenty-seven months covered by the sea- ate finance committee investigation was in prices of such articles of food, as are produced by the farmers of this country. On the other hand, in articles whichper- tain to daily life, such as-clothing,'fuel, tools, lumber and building' materials) house f urnishinggooas, drags and everything of this character, there had been a decided reduction in cost. The advance in prices of agricultural products are of course largely due to the 'increased demand abroad, and the increased l amount that the people' of this country [ must pay for food cannot properly be charged to the tariff. ' On the' other hand, Senator Hiscock shows from Senator Carlisle's own figures that there has been such a marked reduction in prices of other articles of daily : use, and affected by the tariff, as to warrant the conclusion that the cost of living was re-' duced through the action of the McKinley law in the sum of over §47,000,000 in the period between October, 1889, and September, 1891. Senator . Hiscock's speech on this subject has been printed in full by the Republican national committee. . ..-..-• Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE ENGLAND'S NEW CABINET. A .Body of Solera Which Was Xever Created by Law. American readers are once more invited to the difficult task of learning! what elections mean over in Great! Britain, and how it is that they take place at odd times, so to speak, instead 1 of at stated intervals, as with us. It has been said that any intelligent American can readily understand anv part of the British government except the cabinet and the established church. The former only requires of him loa<* and thorough study, but to really unde£ stand the latter one must be born and reared in the kingdom. The cabinet was created not by law— it grew up by practice.

SODA ASH before the passage of the McKicley sold for $5 per hundred pounds in this country/and this was the imported article which was made so much cheaper abroad than we could make it. American enterprise was called into play and American ingenuity sot to \vork under aproteclive tariff, and to-day American soda ash of better quality is made at Syracuse, N. Y., and sold for $1.75 per 100 pounds. But for a protective tariff we would still be paying §5 per 100 pounds. This is the history of every protected article, and yet there are Americans who would encourage English monopoly at a terrific cost to Americans rather than stimulate American industry by a protective tariff securing to Americans . every time a better, article at less cost. . one with 6,000 manufacturers in the stato of New York and received from them statements of what had been going on Farmers' Alliance Opposing a Ke turn to Tlicir Ugo.

Of the sixty-seven industries covered by these statistics 77 per cent, of them show an increase either of the wages or. production, or both. There were no less than 89,717 instances of individual increases of wages during the same year." Mr. Peck reported elsewhere in his summary statement these further facts: J 'Of the sixty-eight industries included,' 73 per cent, of them show an increase? average yearly earning in the year 1891)' while tho total average increase of year- 1 Iy earnings of the 285,000 employees was §23.'ll. The average increase of yearly earnings of the employees of the fifty- ' one trades showing an increase was $43.96 in 1891 as compared with 18510. The total number of strikes reported for the year 1891 was 4,519 as against 6,258 occurring in the year 1890, a decrease of 1,740. Of the total number—4,513-r 2,375, or 53 per cent, of them, were in the building trades.-" It Hurt Their Feelings. Notwithstanding that Mr. Peck is a Democrat, a Democratic official, and was an appointee of Mr. Cleveland himself, these facts haye dreadfully hurt the feelings of the. Democratic party, and more: particularly of Mr. Cleveland's managers.' They frankly ccnfes that they do not"'Want wages and pro daction to increase in the United State 'under a Republican administration— they won't listen to Mr. Peck's figures They say the figures are false—they utterly decline to believe them—they sim ply won't have the facts as Mr. Peck re ports them. One would suppose that every American party ought to be patriotic enough to welcome the fact of increasing prosperity among the people, but the Democracy thrives and grows fat on calamities. It is happiest when the people are overburdened with debts •-when the statistics of labor are statistics of mortgages and mercantile failures. This is a Democratic heyday, a condition that calls forth its fullest rejoicings. Mr. Cleveland's managers in New York have challenged Mr. Peck to a war of proofs. They propose that h* shall submit his statistics to the exam-, ination of a committee of expert free traders, gentlemen who are always competent .to make figures mean anything that suits their purpose. The announced intention, of this committee is to take Mr. Peck's statements of increased wages and increased production and prove therefrom that American labor is -worse .off in Ne-w York than ever before, and that the saddest calamity which can befall, an American workingman is to have more goods to sell than he used to have .and -to get more money for them. ance, as representative of that organiza- <» on j has issued a circular to the farmers ai.or laborers under the caption "The •"Peril of the Nation." ' The section of the Democratic national platform recommending that the prohibitory 10 per cent, tax on state bank issues be repealed stands, the circular says, as a danger signal for the sons of toil to warn them that such repeal comprises a scheme to re-establish the wildcat fluctuating currency of a generation ago, when the state bank notes were of varying and uncertain value, and to the lossofths fanner, the planter and •• the laborer. The notes then were subject to a discount of 10 per cent. The circular continues: "Older men must look -with dread upon this midnight madness move- Has been multiplied more tnan six times, and the wealth per capita more than trebled, a gain in prosperity that has never been equaled by the people of any other leading nation during less than a third of a century.— Iowa State Register.

A Double Paced Ticket. How can you vote for a double action presidential combination like Cleveland and Stevenson? The team does not pull together. One is plowing in' the political furrow of tariff reform, civil service and gold, while the other is pulling the old Democratic cart in the direction of free silver and spoils. ^Between them you do not know where you will fetch up.

And yet how strong men waved their arms at the Chicago Right. Hon.

On these two will fall the principal labor of arranging the details 'for the tome rule for Ireland bill, which is to be the leading measure of the Gladstone administration. Much vexation is expressed by the so-caUed radicals, or democrats, that no one of their wing of the liberals was invited to a place in the cabinet. The home secretary, Mr. Herbert H.
