TVKKDA T. AVii. .10 WHERE HE WAS. A Democratic exchange, with a trifle of Barcasm in its make-up, rises to inquise, •'Where was John H. McGraw during the war?" He was in the loyal state of Maine doing what a boy could do to assist in the support of a widowed and poverty-stricken mother. He was 11 years of age when the war began and 15 years of age when it ended. He was a loyal boy, his home was in a loyal state and the ideas which he imbibed while the great struggle for the Union was in progress were those of loyalty and patriotism. ENGLISH TIN PLATS. In preparing his tariff speech delivered Just before congress adjourned, Senator Carlisle procured from England a statement as to the cost and selling price of tin plates. According to this statement tin plates have been selling in England for exactly what it costs to produce them, without allowing anything for interest on capital employed and other such expenses. But when the tariff act went into effect the Britishers were exacting a profit of 72 cents a box. According to Mr. Carlisle's statement tin plates sold in England for $4.11 a box in the first quarter of 1801, while in the third quarter they sold for $3.08, a reduction of $1.03 a box in nine months. That Is almost equal to the increased duty. The McKinley tariff, by the enormous sacrifices it forced the British tin plate union to make in their effort to keep control of our market, reveals the great profits they have been making out of as in the past. WAGES AND PROTECTION. Congressman Springer in his speech at Detroit charged the Homestead riot to the protective tariff. The statements of the men themselves made to the congressional Democratic committee brought out the fact clearly thst it was not about starvation wages, actual or threatened, that the controversy arose, but regarding recognition of the organisation of workers. The wages received for the lowest unskilled labor were $1.40 per day for ten hours' work, while the skilled workers received from $2 to $lO per day, or even more. At least thirty-eight classes of workers are enumerated in the atatements from the men themselves, embracing about 650 persons, who received over $i per day each in June, a month of small production. The multitude of comfortable homee reared and maintained by tho workers, and their large deposits with the steel company, bear witness to the sufficiency of wages, and with the increase in wages through the nse of improved machinery establish a condition of things which illustrates the results of protection. The Buffalo strike disclosed the fact that the switchmen at Buffalo on Eastern roads were receiving 12.30 per day for ten liours, and struck because they demanded the wages paid on roads running west irom Buffalo—l2.7o for ten hours. In England, France, Germany or Austria jnen at such labor get st> per week or less, while at Buffalo they received fls, not including Sundays or extra time, and demanded $1(120. And yet "General" Stevenson last Saturday told his audience at Bloomington, 111., that "protection robs labor," and Grover Cleveland declares that "protection does nothing for labor." THE VOICE OF A Kit I END OF LABOR. Henry George is the recognized champion of labor; he was the candidate of the Labor party for mayor of New York and for governor a few years ago, polling some 80,000 votes. The v ews of Mr. George, as «• xpresst-d in the Standard, his organ, cannot certainly be Impeached as colored by any undue reverence f »r the ruhts of capital. Mr. George, iu a recent issue of his paper, savs: „ The fact !*, and It mi«ht a* well t>e rf-ojrtiised fcy l>oth si!* - * a-id all c.*#-«», that ths lahnr fflrke cannot tie at the »a?ne time fea<-»ab!e and •;i ceaa I ul. In I lie ci'utvat of eudunutoe t:.e oriahor « v!e muni to the wali, tor capitalists who contra! rsst natural opportunities, a* all great capitalist* do, can w*u for pro St* ■while laborers starve for want of food. I* tile** the orgar.itvd laborer* manage employers hy threatening «>r «v*n assaulting them and the;r p-opt-ttv, and Ibltti'.Maw un unon workmen hjr violence and threat* of violence, every tare* II: Le iau»t t » loftt. There is much truth in this conclusion of Mr. George «. So lonij a* ihe strikers can maintain a retgr. of anarchy and terrorism around the plant they have abandoned they prevail, bat the moment that law and order re sanies its sway tue employer repia.-es ih<» strikers with ether nvn and the strike is lost, This was the caae in the Nt w York Central strike, the Missouri Pacit.c, the Burlington A Quin y, the Reading ttrise of IW, and the recent strike at Buffalo. Mr. C.eorga points o i that "the tuo< eut organized la:»'r a lop:.* the or ye< j-j» that can poasiSly bring •uccass to such a strike, it inv .tes tho h"»s---t. ity of organised society, t» w lich Co riott po«erfu4 labor organ scrum . and not only their subjag v r, m sinkers but their punishment as lanbteak. rs will follow." I ntii organised socie:y is uf«ct V - nun t<e the solution of all strikes that sees secure ;heir t n by v.oleL, e. M - Owifi »«* ua' t Uiicer UtH cixtu.^ stances the strike is no longer an effective weapon to bring employers to terms. It costs labor, even when successful, more than it brings. By the Reading strike in 1988, according to Uradstreet's, the money losses were: To the employes In wages, 13.820.000; to the Reading company, 1L.000,- 000; to consumers in increased price of coal. $700,000, making a total of $3,320,000, exclusive of losses to private collieries and other concerns. When the act providing for arbitration was under discussion before Congress it was shown by statistics that up to that time $13,500,000 was lost in wages by strikes. The loss to general business interests must have been as much more. Of the total number of strikes only 28 per cent, were successful, while 10 per cent, were compromised. The remainder failed. Mr. George considers that labor unions are valuable as educational forces, and when well organized and intelligent!}'led help to resist the downward pressure upon wages without resort to coercive or forcible measures, but he holds that the strike is a weapon that is weak today to effect its purpose and is destined in the natural drift of public opinion to grow weaker every year, because it cannot succeed without violence and with violence it will not be tolerated by the law and the public opinion that law represents. Mr. George therefore sees no help for labor longer in the Btrike, and he concludes that "the only hope for organized labor Is in digging down to the radical causes of industrial disease and uprooting them by means of the ballot." THE FABMEK AND TUB TARIFF. "General" Btevenson in his speech at Bloomington, 111., on the 27th inst., over and over again affirmed that the McKinley tariff robbed the farmer. Let us examine the truth of this assertion. Schedule Q provides duties on live animals, breadstuffs, farinaceous substances, dairy products, farm and field products, seeds, fish, fruits and nuts, meat products, salt and miscellaneons products. Other schedules provide duties on wool, lumber, tobacco, flax and hemp. The table given below, prepared from the report of the secretary of agriculture for 1390, shows some of the mora important changes: Cattle—Old tariff, 20 per cent ad valorem; new tariff, over one year, #10; under one year, I'i Horses—Old tariff, 20 per cent. a<t valorem; new tariff. 130, or if value exceeds (150, 39 per cent. a<l valorem. Sheep—Old tariff, 20 per cent nd valorem; new tariff, over one year, 9L50; under oue year, 75 cents. Cheese, per pound—Old tariff, 6 cents; new tariff, 6 cents. Ktfgs, per down—Old tariff, free; new tariff, 5 cents. Wool, classes 1 and 2, per pound—Old tariff, value above 3) cents, 12 cents; new tariff, 12 cents; old tariff, other, 10 cento; new tariff, 11 cent*. Wool, class 8, per pound—Old tariff, value above 12 cents, 5 cents; new tariff, value above 11 cents, 50 per oent ad valorem; old tariff, other, 2V$ cents; new tariff, other, 32 per oent ad valorem. Barley, par bushel—Old tariff, 10- cents; new tariff, 30 cento. Hay, per ton—Old tariff, 12; new tariff, $4. 11 ops, per pound—Old tariff, 8 cento; new tariff, 15 cents. Leaf tobacco for wrappers, per pound—Old tariff, stemmed, 91; new tariff, $2.75; old tariff, UDStemnied, 75 cento; new tariff, |L Leaf tobacco, other, per pound—Old tariff, 35 eento; new tariff, aleiameU, 50 cents; unite mine J, 35 cents. Potatoes, per bushel—Old tariff, 15 cento; new tariff, 25 cents. Under the McKinley tariff the farmer gets his sugar free and under the Republican tariff policy of the past his and coffee have been made free. On thf fr#e list are jute, raanila, Sisal grass, the substances used for manure agd animals imported for breeding purposes, provided that they be pure blooded, of a recognized breed, and are duly registered in the book of record established for that breed. Under the reciprocity clause of the Mc- Kinley tariff the market for the farmer's products has been greatly enlarged. Brazil now admits the following article*. products of the United S:ates. free of all duties, national, state or municipal: Wheat; wheatflour; maize and its manufactures; rye, rye-dour, buckwheat, buckwh eat-ilour, and barley; potatoes, beans and peas; hay and oats; salted pork. In addition, the following articles are admitted at a reduction of 23 per cent, from the duties provided in the tariff now in force or from any which may be adopted hereafter: Lard and its substitutes; bams; butter and cheese. Under the pressure of the McKinley tariff and its capacity to enforce retaliation, Germany, Austria, France and Donmark have all been obliged to lift thoir embargo against American pork and other food products. Our exports to Germany alone have increased $2,025,074 in the last ten months. Under the agreement with Germany proclaimed February 1,1892. the duty on corn imported from the United States was reduced 30 per cent.; on wheat, rye, etc., 30 per cent.; on flour, meal, etc.. Si per cent.; on butter and oleomargarine, 15(>ercent.; on pork, fresh or prepared, other than bacon, 23 per cent. During the five months ended June 30, 1&»2, the exports of these articles from the United States to Germany, as compared with the corresponding period of 1891, were as follows: C0rn—1891,11,152,647; 1*92, *5.751,010. Wheat—lß9l. $295,9.V>; 1892, $3,433,675. Wheat flour—lß9l, f Pork, fresh and pickled—l©l, $58,427; WJ, 11&V257. Butter—lß9l, $7,199; 1*92, s>B,3»'L Oleomargarine—lß9l, $421,936; 1*92, $886,921 The total value of the cxjxjrts of these six articles from the United States to Germany in live months ended June 30, 1892, was $10,423,330, against $1,958,171 in the corresponding period of ISiil, being a gam of more than 600 per cent. The total exports of the same articles from the United States to Germany in the twelve months ended June 30, 1891, amounted to $4.0"5.3<58. In other words, the exports during lire months ended June 1892, amounted to more than t.vo and oue-half times as much as the exports during the entire year which tided June 30, 189 L S; am has been obi .* 1 to onen Cat a and Porto Rico to our brea is tuffs. To Cuba our exports have incre.v *4 V> per cent, in ten months. In the previous fiscal year the experts to Cut a fe'.l oJ over $1,000,0X1; but uruler reciprocity they have increased nearly f<- in ten months. To Porto Kico t'ie Increase in exports in ten months was wiii'e in the previous year tl.rre *.\s a decline of f 150,000. There is nothing that the farmer sells t -day that he does not get a higher price for than he did thirty-three years anier the Pern vrat c tariff; there .s nothing t' m the farmer in; s that he ih -s not tnv c -'spcr than he did t* ir:y years ajo exc : t labor.

These facto and figures conclusively answer the absurd charge of "General" Stevenson that •'Protection robs the farmer." CSIUSPBCTKD ISBANITT. Andrew J. Borden, a rich man of Fall River, and hi* wife, were found murdered in their bouae on the morning of Friday, August 5. Both had been killed by a hatchet, with which the murderer had split their heads open, inflicting numerous wounds. Mr. Borden had been killed while asleep on a sofa in the sitting room on the first floor, while Mrs. Borden waa found lying face downward on the floor in a spare bedroom in the second story, having been struck from behind by the assaasin. Mr. Borden was killed about 11 o'clock, while the condition of Mrs. Borden's bodv showed that she had been killed at least an hour, and probably one and a half hours, before her husband. Lizzie Borden, the daughter of the murdered man, has been arrested for the crime, and is now in a felon's cell in Taunton. The district attorney expects to show that the girl's story concerning her actions during the time that her father and mother must have been murdered Is untrue; the servant girl will testify that the accused daughter was in the house and not at the barn when her father was killed. The state will show that the daughter hated her ftepmother most cordially and had been on bad terms with her parents for a long time, and will plausibly argue that a stranger, having murdered Mrs. Borden, would not delay escaping a fall hour and a half in order to murder Mr. Borden without knowing when he could arrive home; no robbery was committed. By her own testimony the daughter was in the house when the mother was killed, and yet she did not hear her fall, and the murderer was able to enter and leave the house without being seen by either the daughter or the servant girl, or by persons who were outside the bouse when Mr. Borden was murdered. Every possible clue to the murder has been followed up, and has left the state satisfied tbat the daughter committed the crime, and probably under an insane im» pulse, produced by long brooding over her miserable life with her father and her hated stepmother. Against this view her friends point to her previous good char* acter and to her apparent sanity both before and since the murder. However, this answer is by no meaes conclusive. Norcross, who tried to blow up Russell Sage, had maintained a spotless reputation from youth up; was regarded as a capable and upright man of business, and his sanity had never been seriously suspected. And yet Norcross tried to murder a man he had never seen, who had neyer injured him. The crime of Norcross had no sane motive behind it; it was the insane work, however, of a man whose sanity never was impeached until his dead body was found in the ruins of Sage's office. If Norcross could do business for years without having his sanity suspected until he exploded his bomb in New York city, why may not Lizzie Borden belong to the class of unsuspected homicidal lunatics? Norcross had brooded all his life over his failure to get rich, and finally, his brain giving way, his lunacy took the form of killing a man notorious for succeeding splendidly on the field where Norcross had failed. Why may not Lizzie Borden, brooding for years over the cheerless life she led with a stingy, nonsympathetic father and an equally hard nnd avaricious stepmother, whom she hated, have lost her mental balance, and, hearing that her father was about to make a will disinheriting her, or leaving the stepmother the bulk of his property, killed both her parents. Of course this provocv tion would be too slight to prompt a sane person to commit so awful a crime, but a»l Burning, as the state does, that the girl had become insane, only a spark was needed to set her brain in a flame of frenzy. Whoever killed the murdered pair was evidently insane; the head of Mr. Borden was hacked repeatedly, showing twelve wounds. The object of the crime was not robbery; the hour and a half which elapsed between the re orders was ample to secure plunder, but none was taken. There was nobody who bad any hostility to Mrs. Borden outside the house, and yet the murderer kills her, makes no attempt to escape, and then kills her husband when it was not necessary to kill Lim to escape, for he was asleep. Add to this the fact that no person, sane or insane, was seen by anybody to enter the bouse; that Lizzie Borden's story of her actions is known to be false; that her story that her mother left the house on receipt of a note from a friend is false, and it is entirely probable that the right party has been arrested, an hysterical, moody woman, who was then in a bodily state favorable to insano action. General Weaver is a chronic sorehead. In 1575 he was a candidate before the Republican convention of lowa for the governorship of that state. He thought he was "entitled to the nomination," but he didn't get it; so he left the Republican party, and in 1878 induced the Greenbackers and Democrat* to "fuse" in his district, with him as their candidate for congress, lie was elected. In 1880, before his term in eoncress expired, Weaver was the Greenback-Labor candidate for president. In 1882 he again became the Greenback candidate for congress in his old district, the Sixth lowa. He was deflated. In 1881 and in 1886 as a fusion candidate he was elected. In 18S3 he was tisain the fusion candidate for congress, but wa3 defeated. Lucius N. I.ittauer, a glove-maker in Glovers Title, N. Y., has abandoned Cleveland lor Harrison, says the New York Ue- I übllean state committee. Mr. Littauer is classed as a "life-long Democrat." The committee say he said: "lam thoroughly conversant with every phase of our glove industry, and I can vouch for the fact, as can every glove manufacturer who will give his honest opinion, that never during the past twelve years has there been such prosperity in our trade in any two years as during the two just past." The Jonmni of Comvierc4 furnishes abundant evidence of McKunley prosperity in its announcement of new business enterprises. In two issues the Paterson /Vf« ha? noted such instances as the-e; A new lace mill at Wilkesbarre, Pa.; a new linefactory nt Albany, Wis.; enlarged velvet plant at Stonington, Conn.; the completion of a large woo'en mill at Camden. N\ J.; new cotton factories in FayetteTiile, X. C.; C\iiuiub.a, a.

That Ditch Will Down the "t(df«r." Hamilton HenUi. The Tnccma Ledger is floundering a?onnd in (hat "Seattle ditch'' in a way that seems to c > :rt drowning. The latest congressional reports dtdn't s»-em to indicate that tj.ere was water eaiwigh In the ditch to drown a flea, but the Lttlfff will wait Its foolish action that Tscoiua will fall overboard when the ; . ••Seattle ditch" is dug seems to hare created in-the miud of iu editor a hallucination that bc-rderp on idiuey.

We cannot believe that in its rantings the Ledger voices the sentiments of its rustling constituency. As a rule there ia nothing dyspeptic about the business men of Tacoma We did not believe the adoption of the resolution that was made a part of the platform at the solicitation of King county to be politic, but cannot share in the view of the Ledger that the Improvements contemplated thereunder will be other than beneficial to the best Interests of our state. Mo Brainier Man. Everett Herald. There Is no brainier man in any party in the state of Washington than John McGraw. He has come to the front in business and politics solely by his own efforts, and today stands the peer of any man. Mr. McGraw has the benefit of a successful eareer, with the admitted fact that his word is as good as his bond, either in business or politics. Another qualification that has endeared him to thousands of people all over the state ia that he always stands by his friends, and keeps his promises through thick or thin. The governor's chair of this great state has not and Is not likely to have an occupant who would bring to the position more ability and dignity than would Mr. McGraw. Pleree County Should Be Satisfied. Tokoa Globe. Pierce county Is Just now engaged in kicking like a bey steer because at Olympla the nomination for governor and three or four other office* did not fall into the net that was spread by ner wily manipulatora. The trouble was that at the time a atrong political wind was blowing down Sound, and when the eloquence of Hon. Patrick Henry Winston and the Hon. Mr. Burleigh ahook the convention tree, some of the fruit blew over te King. With one of the ocngressmen and secretary of state, it would seem that Pieroe shouid be satisfied, especially when every other county in the state, except Spokane, that waa recognised at all, had to be content with one candidate each. Spokane County Indorsee Allan. Davenport Times. The Spokane Review refuses to accept the work ol the state Republican convention in the matter of the Indorsement of the Lake Union canal. It has persuaded itself Into believing that Allen is really opposed to the opening of the Columbia river and ie the obedient servant of Seattle and King county, and has actually forced the people to vindicate the senator of the imputation bx Indorsing the work that was held up aa a proof of his faithlessness to the people of Eastern Washington. Spokane county itself indorsed the work of the senator by a good majority, and most of the other counties aaat of the Casoadea did likewise McGraw'a Popularity at Horns. Port Angeles Tribune. The people of Seattle, regardless of politics, turned out to the big ratification of John Mc- Graw'a nomination, at the Armory, Saturday night The big building was packed to suffocation.
