Another mugwump has gone to the aid of Cleveland. Ex-attorney General Wayne Macveagh of Pennsylvania has left the Republicans for the reason that a protective tariff makes wages too high in this country thus "bringing to our shores thousands of undesirable immigrants." The position of Mr, Maeveagh is rather a peculiar one. It must be admitted that to make a hell of a paradise will prevent it being- emigrated to but this method does not seem to be a wise one. Common sense would sug-g-est protection in other and additional lines. However this may be Mr. Macveagh has packed up his political trunk aud left and everything now points to a larger majority than ever for Harrison in Pennsylvania. To a great many there is a striking- resemblance between this campaign and the Greeley campaign of 1872 when Grant was so triumphantly elected. Many Republicans Of prominence went to Greeley's support while the rank and file turned to Grant. At that time Democracy turned its back on the past in its national convention and nominated a Republican- This year it has nominated a mugwump at whose hypocritical shrine only the truly g-ood, in their own estimation, may worship.

JUDGE ALLEN, who was the authority for the report that Judge Gresham would vote for Cleveland, in another interview throws more light upon the situation. "Will Judge Gresham vote the whole Democratic ticket" he was asked, "or will he simply vote against Harrison?" "Well," said Judge Allen, "I would not liko to say as regards that. All I am at liberty to speak of now is that Harrison will not get his vote. Judge Gresham remains a Republican. That principle he will not change, but this year he will not vote for the head of the national Republican ticket." According- to this Judge Gresham does not indorse the democratic platform but simply opposes Harrison for reasons that are probably familiar to all. The democratic papers that have been commending- Judge Gresham now find that he can support Cleveland only because Cleveland is not much of a democrat and because he is zealous of Harrison.

Theodore Shockney last evening were entertained by one of the clearest speeches on the dry subject of taxation figures ever delivered in Logansport. Mr. Shockney showed that the new tax law was made to increase taxation; that it did increase taxation anei that any attempt to create any other impression ^as only made by those who were afraid to let the people know what the new tax law was. He also showed that of the increase in the valuation of State taxables •?-'50,000,000 was in real estate, $100,000,000 in railroads and only $50,000000 in mortgages, notes and personal property aud that the railroads had enjoined the payment of their increase. A sunny room with a big bay window from which one looks out over towers and spires; the pink roses on the walls half hidden by gracefully draped flags and silken banners displaying the faces of the. Republican candidates for president and vice president; palms and violets before cabinet photographs of Dudley and Allison; a crucifts twined with the stars and stripes; a worn Bible and a tin plate card receiver on the desk littered with pamphlets, letters and newspaper clippings. Snch .is the extraordinary jumble of religions and political features at the headquarters of the Woman'-s Republican Association of the United States. Ribbons and Hoses in Politics. Ribbons and roses in politics at last! Here we have them. Ribbons tied in the dainty rattan chairs and fluttering j in roseate knots on the soft, white gown of Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, president of the association. Roses on the walls, on the tables and mantel and on the breast of this gentle woman, whose face glows with the zeal of the Puritan and from whose honest gray eyes looks the spirit of Bunker Hill. For Mrs. Poster is both a zealot and a fighter. She is of the stuff of which martyrs are made, combined with a goodly'proportion of the old Adam. "College Boya and Women." It pleases the Democratic newspapers these days to refer contemptuously to the re-enforcements of "college boys and women," which Republicans are welcoming to their ranks. Well, college boys have votes, and women can make ballots if they can't wield them. What is the Woman's Republican association doing? Talking, writing, agitating and pnb- lishingpamphletscontaininggood, sound Republican doctrines; trying to unite the social and educational influence of Republican women and to enlighten "the shopping women on the McKinley bill," for the latter have been repeatedly informed by the Democratic press that Mr. McKinley is not only responsible for the awful devastation of pearl buttons and tin plates, but for the riot, strikes, bloodshed, the battle, rnnrder and sudden death in this country, as well as the price of butter. Mrs. Foster's Literary Bureau, Mrs. Foster, who is an eloquent and convincing speaker, will stump New York for Harrison and Reid. At the present moment she is attending to the publication and dissemination of a series of political pamphlets. The first has already been issued, and is called "Objects and Methods," The next will be "The American Renaissance." Then will follow "The Immigration Question;" "Republican Contentions and Supreme Court Decisions," written by.Mrs. Foster, whose legal training eminently cnose gooa oia Democratic free trade times before the war), Mr. Ouster-; did & day's carpenter work for the late Hon.

If the foregoing transaction had taken place May IS, 1893, under Republican protection, it would have been vastly in Sir. Cnster's favor. He would have received $3 for his day's work instead of gl.50, and his same purchases would have cost him $1.52 instead of $i.lO. Instead of going in debt $3.60 he would have had 54.08 to his credit, equal to two and two- third days' free trade wages.—South Bend (Ind.) Tribune. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S.

Tnis is the result of the admirable Republican system of national banking, and this is the system which the Chicago convention demanded to have overthrown. The crazy declaration of that body in favor of a return to the abominable system of banking in vogue before the war, is an insult to the intelligence of the people and a menace to the finances of the country. Every vote with the Democrats or with the People's party means a return to the wretched system of state bank currency which caused millions of dollars losses to farmers and others before the present splendid system of safe and reliable currency was devised. 2,045,973 11,2£>3,5SS 833,701 715,153 1,790,000 770,793 13,260,035 2,883,227 17,198,115 2,583,213 160,915 •428,284 £14,218 2,750,838 7,450,418 1,572,147 DEMOCRATIC "HARMONY." 55,253,700 10,582,310 2,560,598 1,309,931 7,830,815 3,014,394 441,050 "Hell Grummets" ts the kind of bait Mr. Cleveland Is reported as finding most effective for fishing at Unxzard's Bay, His friends in the west are nsing the People's party as their Hell Grummet, and liope to catch enough Republican votes -n-ltli it to deprive the grand old party of the electoral votes of certain states -which have always been Republican. Hence a vote with the People's party merely means o vote to aid the Democrats. PALMER'S PRAYER. .ANYTHING TO CATCH TOTES. While the Pharos is advocating projection the Evansville (Dem.) talks Iree trade and thus the work of fool- Ing the people goes merrily on. Eead what the Courier says on the subject: The Democratic newspapers have never been consulted by those claim- Ing- leadership in proclaiming party policies, but wholly unworthy of it because of their selfish ambitions. Tor ten years past there has been a i~epresentstive of the Courier on the committee to prepare tbe State platform. He has always been confronted with politicians eag-ajed in other vocations and who have not been in touch with the people. These alleged representatives of .Democracy have invariably battled against the doctrine of free trade in the committee room. They 'have said with emphatic unction, that they were "free-traders out-right" But they IT is rather a noticeable fact that tha men who the Democrats are parading tia converts, Judges Baldwin, Gresham, MacVeagh and Cooley are j lawyers while the Republican gains have been from the ranks of the workingmen. The Republican party ia its policy of the elevation of the masses, probably does not give satisfaction to some lawyers but that is not surprising. fits her to establish the fact that every essential principle contended for by the Republican party has been finally sustained by the supreme judiciary. A Woman on "Finance." " Another interesting pamphlet, "Our Finances," is written by a woman—Mrs. Margaret S. Burke, of Washington, a specialist ia politics and finance. This lady is more ultimately acquainted with financial questions, and especially the practical side of the tariff question, than .. ay other woman in the country,' She is f.:; familiar with the vaults of the treasury department as an employee. Her paper will be a complete refutation of the fallacies of the People's party theories. Mrs. Burke is the author of a book now being published in chapters in the Chicago Inter Ocean entitled "The Story of Hercules," being a history of the financial policy of the Republican party. Scenes at Women's Republican Headquarters. Whereas at the national Republican headquarters there is much confusion and masculine hubbub, at the women's headquarters business is conducted with gentle deliberation and a mild feminine flutter. Mrs, Poster's aids are pretty, refined, educated women. 2\"o one seems unsesed; no one has as yet acqnired the brazen exterior popularly supposed to accompany an interest in politics. Daring the three hours I spent at headquarters I did not see one woman who by the mildest stretch of imagination would answer the description of a feminine "wirepuller" or "ward heeler" or shrieking sister even. The Grand Army's Sympathy v.-ith President Harrison. On learning that President Harrison would be unable to attend the G. A. R. encampment at Washington, owing to the serious illness of Sirs. Harrison, Commander-in-chief Palmer issued the following: The painful circumstance which prevents the president from attending the great reunion of the veterans in Washington is deeply regretted by all his comrades in arms, regardless of party. He was a participant in the grand review of the arms in 1865, and has taken a deep interest in the coming encampment, and it was expected that he would not only participate in the march, which promises to be the great culmination of the great gatherings of the Union veterans, but in all the festivities of the week. The critical illness of his beloved wife las compelled him to remain by her bedside. Speaking out of the depth of my heart, and voicing the feelings of all " . comrades, we pray that He who nileth armies and nations give our president strength and fortitude to bear his jreat affliction, and that the partner of lis life may be restored to health. The Kortbwestern Rainbovr. General Sicltles on the Management of the Democratic Cumpaijrn. General Sickles is still sarcastic and evidently still not "placated." Somebody asked him in New York the other flay if he was going on the stump. He replied sarcastically: "Why should I? I belong to the Hill crowd and the Frill crowd don't amount to anything. That was the theory on which Cleveland was nominated. Why should we Hill men worry about the election? "Cleveland is all right, of course, tvithout New York. He doesn't need New York. Mr. Vilas is going to carry Wisconsin, Mr. Dickinson is going to carry Michigan, Mr. Harrity is going to carrj' Pennsylvania, and Mr. Russell is going to carry Massachusetts. There is no necessity for New York, with all these states going for Cleveland, and, of course, the Hill men are not necessary to his f'.'.'cess. This being so, whyshould I or any of Mr. Eill'sfriends get excited over the election? They said we amounted to nothing at Chicago. Why should we amount to any more now?" "How many of the soldier boys who were in the parade do you think will vote for Cleveland?" the general was asked. "Very few," answered the commander of the old Third corps, with a shake of bis head, "very few." It was the Republican party, under the ngerressive, progressive, ivisu and benignant policy of ft generous tariff upon foreign importations for the protection of homo labor primarily and the raising of revenue necessarily, that abolished slave labor and emancipated the American \vago earner, of whatever color or condition, from the drudgery of pauper wages. rr:p ilcKlnloy Sill Bid Zt. The decision of the company known. as Salt & Sons, the owners of Saltaire.i near Bradford, England, to wind np 1 their affairs is attributed by the corpo-' ration itself to the McKinley law.

JAJIES H. RICE one of the best known of Indiana's Democratic politicians, died at Indianapolis yesterday morning at 5 o'clock. He was genial and witty and by Republicans, was considered one of the best politicians of the State, and one whose counsels the party will miss. a man leaves a political party because he cannot run it is a striking testimonial to the wisdom of the party in not letting- him run it.

Altrayg at Par. When a national bank closes its doors the notes bearing its name are just as valuable as those bearing- the name of Tic ir=r=isrs -ire Butisneil. The McKinley bill increased the tariff on the farm products, oats 15 cents per bushel, barky 30 cents, wheat 25 cents, wool 11 to 18 cents per pound. Everything that the farmer raises is now protected. As a consequence farmers of Manitoba are thrown out of the American market and the prices of those articles in Manitoba are very much reduced; oats selling for 14 cents per bushel, barley 18 cents, wheat 30 and 34 cents, wool 11 cents, and everything correspondingly low and without purchasers. In the meantime the farmers of the United States are doing a mnch .arger business, are getting good prices, paving off the mortgages on their farms and listening to the calamity howlers who say "tariff is a tax" and if you do not buy you cannot sell, and trying to jonvince the "poor farmer" that he is axed to death. They know that the ost of plows and other agricultural machinery is less than ever before. They further know that the price of wheat was not below §1 for many •ears until during Mr. Cleveland's term of office, and that the first year of General HaS-rison's term it again arose to §1. It was and Is and always will oe the policy of the Eepublican party to protect the American ivage earner as against tho foreign manufacturer by a generous tariff on importations.
