The Chicajro Inter-Ocean of yesterday contains a long interview with Mrs. Lease on the political situation, part of which is given below. Mrs. Lease admits that there is no such thing as fair elections in the South and that for any Northern States to so vote as to throw the election into the House and elect Cleveland is for the People's party to indorse the fraud in the South by which they are defrauded. "What, in your opinion." was asked "would ba the effect of Cleveland's election?" "Conf routed, as we are, by a condi- -tton of affairs so appalling in the south that it appeals to the patriotism of every American citizen, the election of Cleveland would, all these facts oemg known, be a matter of astonishment! as it would be a practical in- dorsement of these things, and as such would be at once the shame and danger of the republic." •There has not been an honest election in the South for years," continued Mrs. Lease. After the negro had been enfranchised the Democracy started out with the proposition that it was right to count out his vote, and they have followed that up with the idea that it is right to count out any political opponent. Democracy holds power in the South by fraudulent voting. They openly boast of their ability to have a full account, and while crying out against a force bill they have fastened a force bill of the most dangerous description upon the people." Is it not possible that the Western Democrats will object to your candid expose of the methods of their brethren in the South*" 'Possibly they may, but I feel that it is my duty, however disagreeable and difficult; my privilege, however exacting, to expose, and by exposure defeat, if possible, the men and methods which have overthrown throughout the South the most sacred franchises of the Constitution. This is not my cause alone—not the cause of any political party—it is the cause of every law-abiding American citizen; the cause of the whole country —for there can be no reform brought about on the economic questions, and no permanent prosperity for the South and Nation; no inseparable union; no stability for society, no order, law or justice—nothing worth having in government without honest and pure elections. And I for one will never cease my efforts on the rostrum and through the press until it is just as safe for General Weaver or any Union soldier to talk in the South, as it was for Colonel Livingston to talk in Kansas. In this question of a free vote and a fair count, the people of a common country should engage in a common cause; and, laying aside all local and personal considerations, reconsecrate themselves anew to the preservation of common justice and the maintenance of liberty." THE Pharos reassures its readers that Cleveland will not allow either the free trade or the wildcat money- plank of the Democratic platform to become a law. This is the old Democratic game, a platform to please the fools and a candidate to keep the sensible men from bolting. THE evening hoodwinker publishes a cartoon illustrating Harrison disposing of the surplus. President Harrison disposed of the surplus by paying it on the national debt but it is rather amusing to see a party which elected Cleveland to dispose of a surplus admitting that he left a surplus on hand. Tariff Picture*. Oar exports of Iron and steel wire continue to grow. During August, 1891, we exported 1,958,438 pounds of Iron and steel wire. Daring August, 1892, we exported pounds. —Xew York Press. TVases Balsed by Protection. A free trade New York newspaper, with characteristic unfairness, attempts to make capital out of the fact that "wages are from 50 to nearly 100 per cent, more in free trade Great Britain than in the protectionists countries of Europe." The "protectionist countries of Europe" mentioned in the table p ublished by the Tariff League, from which it quotes, are France and Germany. It is easy to call them protectionist countries DOW, but the truth is that protection has been in operation in Germany only a few years, and that it has only begun to operate in France. In Germany, however, the average weekly wages of locksmiths tinners, molders and pattern makers have increased from §3.99 in 1882 to §5.15 in 1SS9, and the average wages in thirteen classes of labor rose in that time from $3.49 to $4.60 per week. Evidently protection does raise wages. General Walker admits it, in his "Political Economy" (advanced course); Labor Commissioner Peck of New York State has shown it to be true in this State; the Labor Bureau of Indiana has shown it to be true, and the United States census has shown it to be true of this city, Chicago, Buffalo, Rochester, Denver, Lynn and Nashville. The facts are fighting for protection.—New York Press. Tia Metal and Tin Plate. Even had the Temescal tin mines failed, though they have not failed; even though the prospect of obtaining tin metal in the Black Hills of Dakota were illusive, and wo do not believe it to be illusive; even though not a pound of tin metal were obtainable from American mines, the tin plate industry of the United Statts, if assured of continuance of that protection which the McKinley bill affords, would go on and prosper. If our manufacturers had to import all the tin used in the making of tin plates tiey -would be little worse off than Great Britain, which produces but 9,000 out of the 54,000 tons yearly used. We can import as plentifully as''they .can. At present tin metal comes to the United States free of duty, just as it comes to England.— Inter Ocean.

Why is it that the claim of William F. Gansberg for Sl,fiO-1.50 should bo provided for twice? Why .should it cost $41,000.00 per annum to cure for the State House? Why should 811,000.00 be appropriated and paid assistant custodian, janitors. s\veepers and watchmen at die State House? iu the foregoing list The Bciiclibi nt Reciprocity- For a lonpr time it has been apparent that in some way trade and commerce between tho South American States and the United Stains should be increased. Europe had a monopoly of this trade,and the question arose, how could the United States set all or a fair share of it? As usual, tho Republican party not only saw the difficulty but found the remedy in the laws passed by a Republican Congress, authorizing treaties providing for reciprocal trade relations with South American States. Under these laws treaties have been made and entered into with Brazil, Cuba, Porto Rico, Santo Dominso, British West Indies, Salvador, British Guiana, and Guatemala, and although a- beaming has just been made, the results show an increase after only one year, or a little more, of about 810,000,000. Tho Democratic party, true to its traditions and practice of opposing all great mea!s- ures, opposed Reciprocity, declared it was a sham, and that no good would come from it, usine tho same arguments that ;i- used against levying.atax on steel rails, tin-plate, and other products manufactured in this country, and against all the great measures which have resulted in increased manufactures, and an increase in trade and commerce. What Do They Mo&ii Anyfcow. Consider briefly what the tariff plank of the National .Democratic party is and means. It says: "We declare it to bo a fundamental principle of ibo Democratic party that tlio Fedoral.Qov- orntnont hau no constitutional power to impose and collect tariff duties, except for purpose's of revenue only. No other use is made of the money collected on imports "except for reje- nue only.' 1 The late Democratic Congress appropriated for public use all that was collected on imports, and more too, so whether there is "constitutional power" or not to collect .these duties, a Democratic Congress found them very handy to pay themselves with, and to appropriate for every other public use. Every dollar was needed that had been so collected, besides large drafts on' internal revenue. Then what do they mean by the .party declaration? There can bo but one meaning. Indeed many of their speaker.; and papers make that plain. They oppose putting tariff duties on the articles we can tnalco iu this country, and for which we have the raw material. They don't want Great JBritain to have any competition in the manufacture of these articles. 'They want to build up a British monopoly by cutting off American competition. They know that by admitting these goods free, the cheap labor then would shut up our factories. Then indeed without competition they would put up prices on us like it was done in 1850-60,, whoa wo paid IS and 20 cents a yard for calico and muslins, and throe times the price we now pay for blankets and >,ther woolen good;, and donble the present price for all the goods made of iron and steel. That would be a savage tax on American consumers then. Free trade would iui ^ed bo a tax, for it would destroy American competition and Great Britian would have our markets all to themselves. But how, then, would this government get its revenue? Why, of course they say they would put the tariff duty on sucar, and coffee, and tea and spices and other things which v?e do not and cannot produce in any considerable Quantity and raise '-revenue only' : that way. Then, that would be another tax on American consumers, because we do not and cannot 2row or produce these, or give foreign producers of the:n any competition in them. Then what would we have? 1. .-I heavy tax by free trade in articles we could make, because without competition British greed would put up the price as they did beiore under like ^PRICE'S Baking 'owder Csed in MilEons of Homes—40 Years the Standard. conditions. 2. A heavy tax by tariff duties on articles we can't produce. That is just what a tariff for "rcvenuo only" means. Good Results to All Classes. Our import duties are laid with [a view tocovcrinR tho difference in cost of production hero and abroad. Labor cost, or wages, constitute, fully 9o per cent, of this cost of production. Consequently ..our workmen receive nearly all the benefit derived from protection. It is coaoe'dod by all that American waces arc from 60 to 150 per cent, hlcher than in England, and from 100 to 1,000 percent greater than in other countries. The American farm laborer gets on an average S'-O a mouth and found, while tho English farm lal-orer cots but S3. Ttif American iron-workers get S5.50 per ton for puddling, while the Englishman gets but S2. The American potter sets three times as mu-jh for the sauic work as the English wurkmen. Our textile workers earn from two to- three times as much as the textile workers in England. It is the good wages in this country to millions of men in the shops aud ractor- ies that makes good markets for, farm products, and this Is the reason why wo consume 00 per coat, of what we produce. > il'? ^,'twtO In Ii Nutslur... Kiipiii/k-iin platform: Protection to American industries. Democratic platform: TaritT for revenue only. j Tho first means goods used in America, and the second means they aro to be mads In Europe. Goods made here means wages earned here. Goods 1m* ported means wages earned in Europe. Which shall it be? AYeat Makes an every-day convenience of an' old-time luxury. Pure and wholesome.
