A simple calculation from these figures shows that be average annual wages paid have ncreased from $-127 in 1SSO to §653 ia 1«90, or 52.93 per cent. The significance of this increase is not impaired, but rather gains, when .t is explained that more men were employed in 1S90 and less children: that the percentage of increase in the number of women employed has been less in many industries than in the number of adult males, and also that in ten years very maoy branches of industry have improved the grades of their products, and for this reason require more skilled and higher paid employes. For everyone of these things is a proof of a higher standard of intelligence and civilization, present or to come. Making due allowance for them all, there is still a handsome increase in the average wages of the adult male wage worker in , New York city's industries. This increase in the annual wages represents so much additional comfort and culture and happiness in that unit of the well ordered state, the home. We again call the attention of the readers to the fact that the tendency of protective duties to "create and maintain high wages in tho factory industries' 1 is now attested by two successive Superintendents of the United States Census under widely different circumstances. General Francis A. Walker, who was Superintendent of the Census of 1SSO and whose work on "Political Economy" (advanced course) contains the above admission, is a free trader; the present Superintendent of Census. Robert P. Porter, is a firm believer in protection. So we have free trade testimony and protectionist testimony to the fact that the tariff raises wages Wo havo from General Walker the testimony of general principles and from Mr. Porter the testimony of specific facts in proof of this truth. And we have the testimony of a Democratic statistician, Commissioner Pock, as well as that of a Eepublican statistician, Superintendent Porter, to the* specific facts. What more could be wanted than these thre.e coincidences of testimony from different sources? "THE late Justice Miller, a Republican" voted the Republican ticket and was a truly good man as the Pharos says, and he must have been. If his decision, quoted by the Pharos, had the least possible reference to the tariff, being- a good man, as the Pharos says, he would not have voted the Republican ticket. Nauseating indeed is this silly chatter about tax ing the one to enrich another am applying the great truth which no one denies to something that it has no connection with. Tariff legislation is for the benefit of all Americans and against foreign rivals. If there were no foreign nations a tariff law would be :is dead and inoperative as an Egyptian mummy. It is for all Amer icans and against foreign nations. THE COrNTY TICKET. Joint Representative..Marvin S. X.nuo Kevresfumtive Wcldon Webster Froseriuor Churleu E. Halo SJicrlO'. Sylvester S.

To vote a straight ticket stamp anywhere in the square surrounding the eagle at tho head of each ticket. To vote a mixed ticket stamp the square at the left of each candidate you wish to vote for and do not stamp in tto soucire at tho head of the ticket. If you are a democrat but want the republican county ticket elected, stamp your rooster on the National State ticket and the eagle on the county ticket. PECK SUSTAINED BY THE CES SUS. Labor Commissioner Charles F. Peck's report that, wages had been increasing in this State .under protection is corroborated says the jSTew York Press by the bulletin of the United States Census Bureau relating to the industries of New Tork city in 1S90 as, compared with 1880- The bulletin is a preliminary report of Frank K- Williams, the special agent of the Census Bureau in charge of the statistics of manufactures. It. shows that, the number of hands employed ia JM'ew York city's industries las increased from 227,552 to Sol, 757, or 48.90 per cent., aud the amount ,of " ~~~ •-- LAST Monday cash wheat sold in Chicago at 74i cents per bushel. On the same day four years ago cash wheat sold for $1.16 per bushel.— Pharos. And during Cleveland's administration wheat reached the lowest point since the war, selling in the neighborhood of 50 cents. This is a great argument to catch fools. If there is anything that will benefit the farmer it is the encouraging of every step taken to bring the manufacturing establishment close to the farm. OUK excitable contemporary, the evening hoodwinker, asserts that Judge Baldwin was the object of the attacks of Senator Hiscock and that the Republicans -would gladly kill the Judg-e if they could do it legally. All this is very funny. Senator Hiscock never heard of the three B.'s and Cass county Republicans are simply am used at their antics. THE evening hoodwinker has not yet come to the scratch on county issues but still evades. As a starter to once more encourage it to a fair discussion of the issues the Journal asks it how much more will be paid into the state t-easury by Cass county this vear than last? HAS the extinguished luminary called the Pharos, which is Greek; for lighthouse, determined to keep up its mysterious Greek in its discussion of countv affairs? It seems so. Tariff Pictures!

TIMELY DISCUSSION OF TOPICS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE AND INTEREST. he V,'or:t of Use Administration Ee- vieweil—Many Facts Vi'hich "Will Interest livorv Spealif-, Writer and Voter. Contrasting Two Administrations. [Special Correspondence.] NEW YOKE, Oct. 3.—One of the most nterestin g publications of the campaign ms made its appearance in the form of the "EepubUcan Campaign Test Book." It ia the result of much careful labor en the part of people thoroughly familiar Trith the political history of the country arid of the two great parties, and as'it is prepared for the use of campaign speakers and writers great care ias been taken to make its statements absolutely accurate and reliable. Therefore the information which it gives is the more interesting. Sir. T. H. McKee, of 32 "West Thirteenth street, has charge of its distribution, and, although it is a book of nearly 300 pages, maiis it at sis- teen cents per copy. Here are some of the things -which it shows: It shows that the manufacture of woolen goods has prospered under the new and higher tariff as it never prospered before, and that the wool growers have been so greatly encouraged that they increased the number of their sheep 1,500,000 in the first year under the McKinley tariff. It shows that the prices of woolen goods were lower under the McKinley tariff than before, and that no loss has resulted to consumers from .the. new duty. It shows that forty-two tin-plate manufactories have been established since the passage of the McKinley law, making tin of a quality superior to that made abroad, at higher rates of wages and a reduced price, the selling price being actually lower now than under the old tariff. It shows that the aggregate of domestic exports in the 101 years under the constitution have been $21,692,739,814. of which sum $15,639,813,791 occurred during the thirty years of protection, the total exports during the seventy-one years being but $6,052,921,052. It shows that under twenty-two years of protection 41,302,000,000 pounds of cotton were sent abroad against 30,108,000,000 pounds in the preceding sixty years. Both these statements show the fallacy of the Democratic claim that protective tariff closes the markets of other parts of the world to America, It shows that the product of the farms of the country has been greatly increased under protection. In twenty years under protection '\ve have exported "§3,147,000,000 worth of bread stuffs against §1,260,000 in the preceding fifty years. The exports of meat products under twenty-two years of protection have been 0,391,000,000 pounds against 1,490,000,000 pounds in eighty- one years of low tariff preceding. It shows that under reciprocity there has been an increase of many millions of dollars ia our exports to Central and South American countries, and that in many articles the increase has amounted to from 50 to 150 per cent. It shows that the Eepublican party has been the author and finisher of ail tho pension legislation enacted in behalf of the old soldiers. Nearly every pension bill before congress was voted against by more than half of the Democrats in congress. A tabulation of the votes cast on the important pension bills enacted since the war shows 501 Democratic votes for the bills, 902 Democratic votes against them, 1,2S1 Eepublican votes for the bills and two Eepublican votes against them. It shows that the so called force bill is nothing more than an extension to all parts of the country of the eminently just federal election laws now in force in all the great cities, and which Mr. Cleveland and his subordidates made use of while he was president in their efforts to re-elect him. It shows Mr. Cleveland's veto record as a startling evidence of his hostility to the working people and the masses. His vetoes while governor included the mechanics' lein law, the bill making employers responsible for accidents from imperfect machinery, of inferior construction of buildings, the bill forbidding the manufacture of cigars in tenement houses, the- bill making ten hours a day's work for street railroad companies," the bill prohibiting elevated railroads from, charging more than five cents fare, the bill requiring all state printing to be done by union workmen, the bill abolishing convict labor in prisons, the child labor bill, and while president he vetoed the anticonvict labor bill in 1SS6 and again in ISSS. It shows f"at Cleveland recommended in his message on Dec. 6,1SS6, tho employment of federal convicts in manufacturing pursuits and the use by the government of the products of their labor. It shows that the average rate of •wages in the United States is fully double that in Great Britain. Taking a list of nineteen occupations, such as manufacture of boots and shoes, cotton, goods, carpet weavers, printers, mill hands, etc., the average rate of wages in tne United States is §2.56 per day and -in 'Great Britain §1.23. It shows that in Democratic states the average rate' of wages for farm hands is eighty-three cents a day, and in Eepub- lican states, it is $1.35. It shows the volume of business done through the banks in Democratic states to be §2,7S3,-7lS,924, and in Republican states to be §9,892,374.152. It shows that the amount of circulating-medium per capita is almost double now what it was when the Democrats had had. constant control of -the government for many yeais—the per capita amount of- money in circiQstioB ia I860 being $13.85 -a 11 ^ the amount per capita ia lS92:-,baing. $24.32,; a , pea: Jcajsa i»*e rivilized vrorlil. | Also thousands of other interesting DEMOCRATS AND THE G. A. R. "her TVoald >"ot Give a Penny for TJlclr f J So much has been said about the refusal of the Democrats to give any recognition to the G- A. E. at Washington that it may be interesting to know just what the cold facts are. An investigation shows that the house appropriation committee made no appropriation for or recognition of the event in framing the District of Columbia appropriation bill Nor did the house itself do so. Alter the bill had been passed in the house President Harrison, seeing that no action had been taken on that sub j ect, sent a message to congress calling attention to the subject aud suggesting the desirability and propriety of reasonable aid for a proper entertainment of the men who saved the nation. The senate appropriations committee, acting upon the president's suggestion, reported an amendment giving §100.000 for this purpose. Senator Cockrell immediately moved that the amount be paid exclusively from the revenues of the District of Columbia. This was voted down, the motion, however, receiving 17 votes, of which 10 were cast by Democrats and Farmers' Alliance members—nearly all of them from the south. When the bill went into conference, however, tho house conferees insisted upon placing the Cockrell amendment upon the bill and on also cutting down the appropriation to §75.000. This was combated by the senate conferees, and the bill was hung up in conference for weeks. The house conferees, with the weight of the three-quarters Democratic house behind them, were able to carry through their proposition, and the senate conferees were obliged to yield and permit the entire burden to be placed on the Highest of all in Lsaveaiag Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report. © BOBOTKTS PBESENT. A REALLY "REAL" AMERICAN GIFT TO AN AMERICAN BRiDE. A. Frosty Story -ft'Iiicli Will Interest All Brluas, Past, Present anil Prospective.

I knew it, for I was to be her bridesmaid, and we had spent weeks and months in planning it all, from the most insignificant ruffle to the very veil itself. But here was documentary evidence of it—a formal invitation. Then it occurred to me that my wedding offering was still vraselected. I must have been waiting for a special dispensation, I think, for I longed to give her something real—really real. Something bright and pure and sparkling and dainty and useful, like herself. And my income, compared with my aspirations, was ridiculously small, as it so often happens. But no one would think of Dorothy and "imitation" in the same breath. My gift must It ma UHL-U.O U ^^~ ^ ~v ^^~ ™ — be "dainty." Small then. It must be district. The Eepublicans in both houses j "sparkling."' Glass or china then, spoke and voted almost solidly against ! "Pure." White of course, the proposition to place the entire bur- " den on the district, saying frankly that the people of the nation would not only willingly bear a share of tho expenses, but esteem it a favor to bo permitted to do so. The only result of their efforts, however, was to get the total appropriation finally fixed at $00,000 instead of 575,000, as urged by the house conferees. I believe it vrlll bo possible to cousti- 'tute a commission nosjjartisan in its membership, and composed o£ patriotic, Trise aud impartial men, to whom a consideration of tlio questions of tlao evils connected with our election systems and methods might bo committed.—Harrison's letter of Acceptance.

TSIcKinley's Democratic Rival Converted. One more tariff triumph. A dispatch from Alliance, 0., announces tbat 'Wallace H. Phelps, editor of the Alliance Daily Heview, a prominent Democrat in times past, and candidate for congress against Governor McKinley on the Democratic ticket in 18S6, has renounced the Democracy and comes out for Harrison and Reid. He gives as his reasons that he has become thoroughly convinced of the great benefits accruing to the American people by reason of the protective tariff system tempered with reciprocity, and advises those who do not believe that American manufacturers' workingmeri should be brought into competition with the poorer paid laborers from Europe to vote the Eepublican ticket. „ Democratic Pet Names for the Soldiers. Are the Democratic soldiers going to vote for Cleveland because the, chief spokesman of the Democratic convention and platform, the Louisville Courier- Journal, denounces them and thr'r •wounded, sick, helpless, aged and infirm comrades as— Looters, Perjurers, Coffee coolers, Robbers, Camp followers, Agrarians, Ked cosed patriots, Thieves, Loafers? —IMadisoa Courier, Cups and saucers. Exactly! And they ought to be Belleek, but that costs so much. Dorothy and I had asked tlio price of a beautiful imported cup at a pretentious shop on Fifth avenue, near Thirtieth street, and we felt like thieves for even touching it when the attendant said the price was §6.25 for one. No, the outlf-k was not encouraging, but there's "noi:-~ig like trying again," as my grandmother used to say, aud I started for town at once. "I would like to see some white Belleek cups," I said to an attendant in a fashionable store not far from Broadway. "Certainly," and he took from a glass case the dearest little, pure white, scintillating bit of a cup with a gold brim and as light as a feather. It was my dream materialized, and I almost screamed with delight when he let ino hold it. "This," he explained, "is American china." "Oh, dear, hovr provoking," said J, almost letting the bijou tumble; "I want it real—not any Arner- ic;|n stuff." I think his eyes twinkled, but he replied very gravely and politely: "This is real. You doubtless know (clever man!) that 'Belleek' is the same of a town in Ireland where this ware was first produced. The proper clays are found in this country in abundance, and ten years ago ex-Congressman J. H. Brewer, of New Jersey, paid a man three times as much as he was receiving in Ireland to come here and work for him. Other potters, who pay their workmen as good wages, have found out the secret since, and there is no more deli- cats china made in the world than some we cet from Trenton, and none so cheaply sold in the United States as the American." "Well, I should think that American potters must be very good men to ] -ay their workers three times as much as they could get in Europe, bat how can they afford it?" "The protective tariff" "You" are going to tell me about that McKinleybill." "Do you object to itV "Oh, I don't know anything about it, really; but it must be a very good or a very bad thing, people talk about it so much." "Here are the facts; you shall judge of its 'goodness' or 'badness' yourself; The McKinley bill forces the foreign Better to pay sixty cents for the privilege of selling 100 cents' worth of decorated china in this country—that is, there is a tariff of 60 per cent, on that class of goods. This is so that the workman here may be paid sisty cents more for a dollars worth of work than are the same class of people in Europe. That enables our working potters to live tetter and happier lives than do those in Europe, and brings a class of men among us who are encouraged to produce the most artistic results. There is so much competition among the native potters that the price to customers is low. The price is eighty cents each." "Eighty cents and real, and I saw an imported one for $6.25! Well, I think the McKinley bin is a very good ; thing indeed. Give me half a. dozen of ! them right away, please." It seemed so wonderful 'hat by buying this cnp, which was the very thing I wanted, for eighty cents, instead of paving $6.25 for an imported one, I was helping one of my own countrymen and bis family to live three rimes as well as they could, do inEsrone. It hr.d never before occurred to ms that that tariff had anything to do -with us girls. I thought it was all about tin pans—plate, I mean—and it seemed to me then and now that if we begun our encouragement at home "charity beginnings'' would take care of themselves. Why, it is so simple I feel as if I must take a hand at voting happiness and comfort to working people. I went home with a light heart I had found what I was looking for and much jnore. With a yard of wliito satin and another of roso colored I covered a case for the precious cups. My present cost §0.50, cups and all. This note came from Dorothy: HESTEB, YocDEAK GIKL—It's tho prettiest and (liuntiobt thing I have had. Bat you shouldn't have spent so much money on me. Ned says it .makes him think ot mo, being pink aud while and bright, luid—but he $ays u. yood maay perfectly absurd thiugs anyway. I am so happy about cverylbincr, alid so pleased with your eta. It's jusc what I wanted, most. You must show mo how you mako that! delicious tea, aud we will christen nsy beau-. tiful china together. Always your DOIIOTHY. There: I say, and so will Dorothy, when I tell her my experience, "Long- may the protective tariff wave." We! girls are not ungrateful to our Uncle Samuel if we but understand what he is. doing for our happiness. Dorothy and I heard too much about abstract "pa-- triotism," and too little about "American china" and other homemade, things, I presume, during that "finishing" process. GRACE ESTHER DREW.
