Two years ago, only two, the Democratic papers and the Democratic orators were full of statement and prediction about the McKinley bill. Democrats know that not one of those statements were true and that not one of those predictions have come true. They know that either the leaders of their party willfully misrepresented or else that the leaders of their party knew so little that they couldn't tell what the result of any given legislation would be. In either case those leaders showed themselves entirely unworthy of support and yet we find them before the people to-day making similar statements and predictions. Is it possible that intelligent Democrats will again follow them? The Journal has too high an opinion of Cass county Democrats to believe that they will. For President, BENJAMIN HARBISON OF INDIANA. For Vice President, WHITEUW REID For Congrs-ss WILLIAM JOHNSTON. THE Journal has been handed a copy of an illustrated pamphlet issued by the Democratic committee which is filled with the grossest rnisstate- ments. On one page is given the picture of a Catholic bible which it is stated is tariff taxed at 25 per cent. Below it is given a cut of a pack of playing cards with the statement that the gambler's cards come in free. The manufacture of books is protected and bibles probably come under that class but the duty on playing cards was 100 per cent, under the tariff of 1SSS and is SO cents per pack under the McKinley bill. What do intelligent Democrats think of a party that must resort to such schemes to exist? THE STATJE^TICKET. for Govereor— 1EA J.

Democratic f ismay at Commissioner f- -..Peck's Report. It is not surprising that the democratic newspapers have been filled •with consternation by the recent report of the labor commissioner of New York. Ihese newspapers have insisted that tho HeKinley tariff act, has not contributed to the promotion of the public prosperity; that it has not in•creased the wages of workingmen, and that it has not enlarged and enriched the markets of the country. They have maintained, on the contrary, that it is responsible for the depression of industry, leading' to lockouts and strikes, and that its whole influence has been prejudicial to the best interests of our 'people. The report of Commissioner Peck utterly and absolutely disproves all of these statements. Mr; Peck,':who is a democrat, entered upon his inquiry into the operations of the present tariff in the belief that the result would vindicate the democratic tariff position. He expected to be able to furnish his party a campaign document of infinite value. The result has shown-.to him, however, that he was totally in error as to the effects of the McKinley legislation. His statistics conclusively establish the accuracy of the republican insistment, and demonstrate that the protective policy is in all its operations salutary and beneficent. The period covered by the commissioner's investigation included the year immediately prior to the enactment of the McKinley Taw a,nd the year immediately following its going' into opera- ,tion. The statistics upon which his conclusions are based were supplied by over six thousand representative and leading business firms of the state. The facts show that there was ,a net increase 'in wages of 80,377,925 in the year ISO! as compared with 1S90. and a net increase of production of 331,815,130 in the same period. An analysis of this table further demonstrates that of the sixty-seven industries covered, 75 per cent. show an increase cither of wages or product, or both, "and there were no less than 89,717 instances of individual increase of wages during the same year" (1891). Speaking of another table the commissioner says:. "Of the sixty-eighty industries included, 75 per cent, of them show an increased average yearly earnings in the year 1S91, while the total average increase of yearly earnings of the 235.- reporc ol tne superintencehir '01 me state banking department, which was given to the public,,cotemporaneouslv with that of the'labor "bureau, shows that the increase of deposits in the saving's banks of the state during the last six months amounted to 310,417,849, while the gain since January l, 1SS9, amounted to SSC,SS2,51G. That is to say, the workingmen of Ivew York have been able during- six months of the operation of the McKinley tariff act to increase their savings in the enormous sum of over ten millions of dollars. It is significant that this prosperity is especially exhibited in the savings banks of the manufacturing' cities of the state. If it were true,- as is claimed by the democracy, that the protective policy has tended to the depression of industry, it is certainly amazing that such an enormous gain in savings should be exhibited. The figures go to show conclusively that the McKinley act has given profitable occupation to the operatives employed in our manufacturing- industries. It is to be expected, of course, that our democratic friends will persist in their declarations that free trade is the only wise policy, and that the interests of our working people are bound up in the overthrow of the existing protective system. They have committed themselves by their candidate and platform to a definite economic theory, and they mean to insist upon it, no matter how absolutely the" facts of the case may be against them. But they will not be able to deceive the American people by their juggiing 'with figures and their loud-mouthed assertion of an ; indefensible theory.—Frank Leslie's i Wefikly. ,.

THE McKinley bill left unchanged 249 articles, decreased the dirty on 190 articles and increased the duty on 115 articles, without an increase of cost of the necessities, but on the other hand a great reduction. THE tariff is imposed against foreign nations. There is no reason why Americans should object 10 the burdens America places on its competitors in the world of commerce. No AMERICAN can . patriotically oppose a policy which has for its object the protection of Americans from the avrrice of foreign nations. THE enlightened sentiment of the age favors legislation which shall preserve the laborer from the grinding heel o'f unrestrained competition. Tariff Pictures.

The Indianapolis News, independent •with strong Democratic proclivities, lias declared for Harrison. Theifews says: • In 1SSS The News supported Mr. Harrison and gave good reasons why independent voters should vote for him. 'Since then the paper had changed hands, to be sure, but it had •not changed principles or purposes. Mr. Harrison has made a far abler President than even his friends, who promised much, predicted. He has in many ways uorapelled approval and admiration on the part of his political enemies. He is better equipped every way now than he was four years ago; less hampered, too, by political obligations. The Quty-Platt element was defeated and humila- ted at Minneapolis: it is not conspicuous in the campaign. Mr. Harrison has been a credit and .an 'honor to oar State. He is qno of us. our fellow citizen, our neighbor. The State has honored him and he has proved worthy of the honor. The Nation honored him, and he rosa level to the high opportunity.

Cleveland and His Party. It is thus apparent that Mr. Cleveland is not in accord with the declaration of his party on the. f undatnen- talissue of the campaign. The country at large has much more confidence in Mr. Cleveland than it has in his party. Would his wiser counsels • prevail .if the party were placed in power? That is the Question to be gravely pondered. Democratic majorities in Congress of recent years have not been distinguished for wisdom or for willingness to take advice. The leaders have "been in opposition so long that they do not know how- to act well when they .are in the majority and must.initiate legislation. Loot at the present Congress with its overwhelming Democratic majority. What did it do at its first session-but commit blunder after blunder? How much, influence would Mr. Cleveland's ideas and advice have with such a body?

The significance of these facts cannot be overrated. They rest upon evidence which is indisputable. They constitute a knock-down blow for the democratic free traders. They cannot be answered. They show that the Kinley tariff has given new impulse to the manufacturing interests of the country, and has been of practical advantage to both business men and wage earners. It is true that these facts relate alone to the state of Xetv York, but they are in the largest sense representative. - For, as Mr. Peck remarked in his report: "No state in the union offers a field so varied or extensive within -which the statistican can carry on his work with greater assurance of intelligent success than is presented by the state of New York. " Within, its borders are - to be found by far the greatest number of manufacturing establishments, the most varied industries, and the largest number of in' dividual employers and wage earners ' of any of the forty-four commonwealths embraced in. the United . States.' So : that whatever the statistical data collected and tabulated may prove, relative to the effects of 'protection' on labor and wages in New York, may justly be taken as fairly representative of the conditions throughout the whole country." Some of the democratic newspapers are endeavoring to break the force of this .report by the silly pretense that it •was conceived in hostility to Mr. Cleveland, and was instigated, by Senator Hill in his desire to injure his sucosss- ful rival It is a sufficient answer to this pretense that in the first place .there is no evidence that' Senator Hill does not propose to support Mr. Cleveland's candidacy, while in the second _place the conclusions arrived at are based upon official data and are therefore'unimpeachable. Besides, the accuracy of the report is conSrated from another official source, also-democratic, and equally trustworthy. The "dinner" to Tweed's successor and his strikers. . , • The dinner was to "Dick" Croker, "Billy" Sheehau and "Ed" Murphy. These are rulers of Tammany. The presidential candidate put his legs imder the same table with them; the rest of the world was kept away from the banquet room, and, when the candidate finally emerged, his face was beaming and, supposedly, mutual pledges had been given and an understanding- reached. That was the scene. What do the self-satisfied gentlemen who have posed for some years as mug- wumps xvho despise Tammany, and who, announcing themselves as better than other men, have made Cleveland their idol, think of the occurrence of Thursday night? Tammany has not merely defied their joss, but has made him crawl at'Tammany's feet. What are they going to do about it? tne rree traae plank of the Chicago platform when he writes his letter.— Minneapolis Journal. EI?~The democrats are afraid to discuss the tariff issue fairly and on its merits, so they are all the tima trying to becloud the issue by crying monopoly. They know that "monopolies" are as Abundant in free trade England as in protected America.—Iowa; State Register. ESPThis reporfr(PecK's) is enough of itself to overthrow all the theories of the free traders. If a democrat cannot twist ths McKinley bill to his own ideas, there is no possibility of doing it. Again we remark that David E. Hill was right when he said the democratic platform had turned every vrork- shop'in the country into a republican headquarters.—Philadelphia inquirer. - i2I r "*Free traders profess to .see a contradiction in the statement that the average cost of the necessaries of life rm_ i JT j, I I ""^-^"-KV- \*\JOV VA bUC; Llc^UOOtlJ £C3 UA iLLC The event was adisgrace to the Amer- has decreased . while tlle price of farm IT^ *^ar\»^Ta , r>n««»«>tf*A i+- frti-r-rt»*rtJ *-V..» ,?•?_ f ican people, because it lowered the dignity of a high place, a dignity which has, in the past, appertained even from a nomination.
