Harrison, the best American we have: and when you see the votes counted in heavy Irish districts on Nov. S, you will be surprised to see what a change has come over our Irish-American citizens. They see now which party is their friend, and they will support the present administration. The Republican party is, by its very nature, the Irishman's party. I cannot see how a patriotic Irish-American could support the Democratic national ticket. "Yes; I shall go to my home at Lincoln, Neb., and vote- I wouldn't miss my vots this year for anything. This is an occasion when all men who have the best interests of their own country at heart should come out and vote the Republican ticket.

Patrick Egan, minister to Chili whom the Democratic papers abused so ferociously in the Chillian matter has arrived in this coun try and in. an interview says: "If it bad not been for the misrepresentations of the Democratic press of this country, which cares more for political advantage than the interest of the country itself, there would not have been the assault on tne American sailors on our war ship Baltimore, and we should never have had any •trouble with Chili." "The Democratic press of this country, aided bv the press of England, led •the Chilians to believe that the people of this country did sot uphold the position Of the administration, and w&en the Chilians assaulted our sailors in the streets of Valparaiso, toev believe their violence would be applauded by not only the American press, but the American people.

And this was paid in. cash with a 20 cent levy on $19,000,000 bringing in $38,000. Who says there wasn't a big surplus? NOTWITHSTANDING the most careful efforts to prevent, political truths sometimes find their way into the columns of tho Pharos. On the evening of Oct. 5th the following appeared in its telegraph columns. I'LAIXT FROM A BRITISH I'AFER. LONDON, Oct. 5—The Morning News says: "The export trade of Great Brit ain is on the decline. The last returns show a decrease of 12 per cent Since the McKinley bill was passed, fourteen firms have transferred their operations to the United States. Foui are manufacturers of plush, four of lacs curtains, one of linen, one oi cotten. one of machinery and three oi woolen goods." THE Pharos still dodges the question of the increase ot taxes by thi new tax law. First it says the tax la« does not increase taxes justifying itse 1 by the statement that the tax law anc tae tax levy though acted upon by tht legislature at the same time wen separate acts. Cornered on that ii inserts the word "local" before th< word "taxes" and denies that the tax legislation increases "local" taxes Will the Pharos mset the issue squarely? THE new tax law does not increase local taxes. So says the Journal after many long months of misrepresentation.—Pharos. Dodging again behind the word "local." The Journal has made nr misrepresentation and the Pharo.- knows that it has not. The new tax increases taxes and the Journal has said so repeatedly but the Pharos i= afraid to meet tne issue. THE Indianapolis Sentinel calls Patrick Ford, editor of the Irish World, a .deserter from the Union army. This is like its abuse of Patrick Egan. When an Irishman uses his judgment and votes as he pleases he becomes an object of abuse. The Irishman must vote the democratic ticket and ask no questions in this country. THE County Treasurer when he settled vrith the Treasurer of State in May 1S91 paid in $23,436.48 on semiannual settlement. When he settled in May 1S92 he paid in $39,267.56 or $15,831.08 more. And yet th Pharos says that the new tax law does not increase taxes. Tariff Pictures.

GEOVER DID IT. HE OFFICIALLY USED FORCE BILL TACTICS TO RE-ELECT HIMSELF. A Discovery Which Takes Away the T^ast Issue Of tTio Democracy—An Official Order hy Cleveland for tie Use of Force Bill Methods to Ke-elect Himself. (.Special Correspondence.] WASHINGTON, Oct. 3.—Another Democratic idol has fallen. Another Democratic "campaign issue" has been destroyed. And this, too, by Mr. Cleve- .and himself. The Democratic party has certainly been unfortunate in its issues in this campaign. Its tariff issne was destroyed oy a member of its own party—Labor Commissioner Peck, Its wildcat currency issue was destroyed by members of its own party innumerable, who denounce it unsparingly. And now its last and only remaining issue, the force bill, has been destroyed by Mr. Cleveland himself. It came about in this way. Some Wretched person with a good memory, who had listened with amusement and amazement to the plantive wails of the Democracy about the force bill, suddenly remembered that Mr. Cleveland, while president and a candidate for re-election, not only authorized, but absolutely ordered for his own benefit, the enforcement of the very force bill features of the then existing law, about which Democrats are now so much agitated. This discovery has been the political event of the week. It was as much of a bombshell in the Democratic camp .is was the Peck report a few weeks ago. It takes away the last leg the Democrats had to stand on. The three issues upon which they were making or attempting to make their fight in this campaign were free trade, free banks, free frauds it the polls. Curiously every one nf them has been knocked out, and that, too, by Democrats. But the most distressing thing is that the distraction of the last one of these issues left to the party should have come about through an official act of the party's own candidate while he occupied the White House. And this he did with the purpose of reelecting himself president of the United States. The facts are these, and they are very interesting: The so called forco. bill simply proposed to extend to small towns ought to be. You need vigilant men, who aro conscientious workers, and no others. It is thus shown from official .records that MX. Cleveland, while president, ordered his subordinates to use, in the election in which he was himself a candidate, the very laws to which his party is now so strenuously objecting. The so called force .bill, abont which Democrats are howling, was the very essence of the act which Mr. Cleveland ordered his subordinates to enforce for his won re-election. This is all there is to the force bill bugaboo. It was simply a proposed law providing for an extension to country districts, on the petition of citizens, of the law already in force in the cities of 20,000 inhabitants or more. What did the force bill really propose to do? It proposed to extend to the country districts, where fraud is now a matter of common occurrence, practically the same law which Mr. Cleveland ordered enforced. It proposed to make false registration or interference with registration a crime; it mads keeping false poll lists a crime; it made election bribes and ballot box stuffing a crime: it required ballot boxes to bo placed in plain sight of voters, and the •willful placing in those boxes of illegal ballots a crime; it made improper manipulation of ballot boxes or ballots a crime. And that is all. That is the law which President Cleveland ordered his subordinates to enforce to aid in his own re-election, and it is the proposed law so extended as to be available for all of tho people about which Mr. Cleve- Highest of an in Leavening Power.—Latest U.

Addressing his old comrades of the gallant Third corps in Washington he defended the pension system, which recognizes in :v practical way the services which the soldiers of the" Union armies had rendered their :ountry in its hour of peril. But he said more, aud these are some of his words: '•You are'going home now, and there is something I want you to take home with you. "Ponder it; tench it to yonr children; tell it to your neighbors. It is this truth: That the people of the United States will see that no man is ever , elected to an office of profit and trust in howSii^cmttl | this country who opposes the payment they found 1 " that one "of the lasiTofficial of pensions to the soldiers of the Union/ •••-•- ----•---•> -" ~r I That was a saber thrust at Mr. Cleve- I land, who was never so merry as when veto acts of their candidate sustained all of its principles. 0. P. ATSTIS. ONE MORE. Another Prominent Democrat Deserts Cleveland. ; PROVIDENCE, Oct. 3.—General John' M. Erenaan., an astute Democratic poli-j tician, in discussing the political affairs, of the state and nation, said: The Democrats cannot win in Rhode-: Island, for they have nothing whatever; to win on. The national party very; foolishly went to the country with a defeated candidate, and they cannot recover the presidency. Cleveland was defeated with the federal government behind him and more than 100,000 officeholders, all of whom ought to have been with Cleveland, but they were in the majority against him, and when the election came around again in 1883 they largely voted for'-Harrison. There is but one logical conclusion to this Dart hunting for half a reason to veto a widow's pension. The report continues: "The general leaned on his crutches as he spoke these words, and the sharp, idiomatic, merciless sentence, clean cut as a paragraph of constitutional law, cut through the air like the slash of a cavalry saber. He rammed the words home hard, as Captain Bigelow did tho last charge of the Massachusetts battery of the Third corps, and the effect was as instantaneous as when Captain Bigelow pulled the lockstring. In a moment what was left of the old Third corps spoke with its old charging ring its opinion of the man whose only joke was cut at the expense of disabled veterans. 'Three cheers for the man who made that speech,' cried Comrade General Car: 1 ,: Bringing to his feet, and again the charging cry of the old Third corps rang out into the night of Grand Arrnv V- BY THEIR RECORDS JUDGE : YE THEM.

A. K. Reunion Sept. 21. Harrison on tho Battlefield. It was almost the middle of May, 1864, before Colonel Harrison had an opportunity to participate in one of those great battles which, have become historic. Resaca was tho field upon which he made for himself a reputation for coolness and personal valor which none can assail. He led on foot the charge of his brigade upon a formidable redoubt. Away in advance of the- five regiments he ran across the valley which to so many was the valley of death, and still in the lead he climbed the hill on which scores fell to rise no more. Colonel Harrison was among the first to cross the parapet. It has been said he was the very first. A band to band combat ensued, the gunners defending themselves with their rammers a,nd tho assailants attacking with their clubbed muskets; officers exchanged pistol shots. It was in fact one of the rare instances of a genuine bayonet charge without a shot fired except by the'defenders of the redoubt. The air rang with victorious cheers, and for awhile the inclosure was asce:i<50i: frantic joy. The colors bad: all been borne inside, and to both friend and enemy in tho distance they announced that the height was gained.— Washington Star. aistncts or tne United States the law which has been in. force for years through which United States marshals and supervisors of elections, enforce order and prevent fraud in any city of 20,000 inhabitants or more in elections for congressmen or other United States officials. The recent discovery, which has created such a panic in Democratic circles and taken away the last vestige of an "issue," was the fact that President Grover Cleveland, on the approach of the election of 18SS, when he was a candidate for re-election for .the presidency, issued to Attorney General "Pan Electric" Garland, under date of Oct. 5, 1S8S, the following order: DEAR SLR—Yon are hereby requested to take generai charge and direction of the execution of tie statutes of the L'nited States touching the appointments of supervisors of elections and special deputy marshals, and the perform- once of their duties and their compensation, BO far as these subjects are by the constitution and laws under the supervision and control of the executive branch of the government, yours truly, GKOVEH CLEVELAND. Immediately afterward this letter was sent by Attorney General Garland to United States marshals: SIR—In pursuance of a letter of the 5th inst. from the president, directing the attorney general to rake charge of ths "appointment of special deputy marshals, the performance of their duties and their compensation, together with the compensation of supervisors," at the congressional election in November next, your attention is directed to the provisions of titles 2i and 26, chapter 7, title 70 of the Revised Statutes. Under sections 2,022 and 2,021 Revised Statutes you have power to keep the peace, protect supervisors, preserve order, prevent frauds and enforce thcla^v ia toTvns of 20,000 inhabitants and upward- You should make yourself familiar irith the statutes referred to and see that they- are understood by your deputies, vho should be discreet men, impressed with the importance of an honest franchise. The manner of discharging these duties by VourseK and your deputies is largely left to your diniretios. In matters involving questions of law you are directed to consult the attorney of the United States for yoTir district for needed information and advice. It is assumed that the duties can be performed without infringing upon the rights* of any citizen in a manner that shall be firm, andat the same time free from any nnnecessaiy dis- plajCof authority." It is not'expected that supervisors .and deputy-marshals will receive CompeQ!|ation for more than five days' service, and thej should be so informed. Within or tne political outlook, and that is,' What can Cleveland do without the federal patronage in 1803 when he could not win with it in 1SSS? Cleveland, who became so jocular and grotesque in his thousands of pension vetoes to the poor Union soldiers' claims, will never be forgiven. He drove many nails in his political coffin when he made those vetoes. No one in all this country ever heard before of a candidate going to the people as a nominee for a great office against the -expressed wishes and desires of the state delegation, whence he came. In the November elections in Rhode Island the Democrats will be sure to see to it that the Cleveland following choose two Mugwump candidates as the nominees for congress, and they can go down with, the ill starred coterie of managers who expended so much money to secure the Cleveland delegates to the Chicago convention. These same Mugwumps in Rhode Island caused the defeat of the Democratic party in this state in the last April election. Grover Cleveland, while president, ordered f 1 ^ subordinates to use forco bill methods for his own re-election. This is sh<-ivn by copies of his official orders to Attorney General Garland, published in correspondence from jjmce anu roiieu uptotne w flite.n.OtlSe." General Sickles was evidently right when he waved his crutch, in the Chicago convention and declared that Grover Cleveland would never receive the votes of the men who fought to preserve the Union. PERTINENT QUERIES. Some Knotty Questions for Democrats to Answer. If foreigners do. not pay the duties, why should they remove their factories to the United States? If the United States is not producing tin plate in. commercial quantities, why are sixty Welsh tin plate works idle? If the McKinley wool duties did not protect American wool prices, why has the price of wool fallen in the London market over 21 per cent, since Jann?.ry, 1890, while in the same time the fall in the price of American wool has been only 7 per cent? Why should Democratic Labor Commissioner Peck's report, shovring how the McKinley law has increased wages and given life to industry, cause such great sorrow in the free trade camp? If the tariff has caused strikes, why were there 1,740 fewer strikes in ^Tew York state in 1891 than there were in 1890?
