THE laboring people of Ohio, having been promised higher wages before tariff rates were Increased, are now demanding of Banna the fulfillment of these promises. The tax on hides have increased the price of boots and shoes and the tax on cloth- Ing has materially added to the expense of maintaining families. As the price of tariff taxed articles go up wages should also be advanced. Otherwise the tariff is an injury rather than a benefit to the laboring classes. "We have had a high tariff for many years and yet the wage trend has been steadily downward. Last fall the claim was made that the purchasing power of money was so great, that the laboring classes could buy more commodities for a day's work than ever before. Now, If the tariff has increased the price of commodities which laboring people »re compelled to buy, why should there not be a corresponding increase in their wages? »m«* ..~ , n?th and vi^or! shaH < take"thO place of weakness, prostration and despair amon? the people, and they publish the marvelous facts of their own cures, over their own signatures, that the common people _ .

I am going to tell you 1 a few things to say to your Republican friends when they say that they are bringing about Republican prosperity, by a Republican administra tion. Tell them that we advocated arbitration last year, and advocate It more strongly now than last year. Tell them that wa opposed government by injunction last year and oppose It more strongly now.
