Every day the financial sky grows brighter, demonstrating the wisdom of Deuooratio statesmanship. The Herald says that Gov. MoKinley is the counterpart of Napoleon—DO doubt then bat what be belongs to the A. P. A. Local politioa is beginning to warm up and every day greater dissatisfaction is manifested tward the Republican nominees. They will not be in it on tbe sixth of November. Have you Been MpKinley'e iupeeohes published in any of the papere? They are too thin to stand inspection and for that reason the governor refuses to allow them to be published. The Democrats of this oontity say of all years this is no time for them to •laughter the Democratic ticket. Tbe Republicans have done nothing but heap abiiee upoji the tjemoerajy for the past year in order to shift the responsibility from their shoulders for tbe bard times for when they along were responsible. No Democrat wlH take this abute and then eu enemy.

That means that every farmer who bought 'an overcoat bad to give, fourteen bushels of corn for nothing last year to the manufacturer. That is one reason why the west did pot prosper like the east under high tariff, , .Our contemporary on Main street tejls yon thatyon get four pounds less sugar for a dollar now than yon did under high tariff. It this is true the grocer jnst simply "holds out" that amount on,yon and not the trust as he SBTB, for it is quoting sugar as low now as it was ever sold in this country. And besides the government is saving tbe two cents per pound,that the McKinley- bill gave ;o the American producers which amounted to about 817,000,000 annnal- y. A tax which the producers of wheat, corn, cotton, etc., were compelled to pay to the sugar growers. Think it Over. One-fourth uf all the money you paid nst year for clothing was a free donation to tbe manufacturers of the east. .t it cost you $100 to clothe your family >25 WHS taken from your pocket by an unjuet law, called the McKinley bill, and riven to the mauufaulurers for nothing. So wonder nine eastern states increased their wealth more than twice as much ae iwenty-one of the largest and most irosperoua western states during the met ten years. No wonder that these western states increased their mortgages .46 per cent during this period when one fourth of all the money paid by base stales for clothing was a free gift o the manufacturers of the east forced rom ns by high tariff. Clothing is not be only thing on which we westerners lave been robbed, for a like tribute bus ieen levied on UH by every manufacturer we were compelled to support. Think of t, one fourth,and in many instances' more, of all the vast sums of money be- ng eipended by tbe west for manufao- nred products being a free gift to the manufacturers of the east and yon will cease to wonder why U is that our mortgaged indebtedness increased Ii6 per cent and wonder bow it is tlmf we have managed to survive. It ie true we have [one so,bnt at a fearful lose. For every man who baa been enabled to gain a lome jn tne west during the pa'at ten reareitweotr, men bave lost their homes. Do .you wonder then why we denounce tbe MoKmley bill as a robber tariff? Think these things over and if yon love rour home 'and want to aea yonr neigb- K>rs prosper and secure hom'ee for themselves or be able to keep .the ones they bave, from tbi» day on denounce high' ariff. . .... . .. Congressman Hepburn,.in opening hie campaign the other day, made nae of tba following: "In tbe BepqbJioan days we led 8175,00,000 by taxing foreign _ ^ofte lb'«[t pome bare aekinjg a market, i'bij oouutry Is by far the richest market in the world. The wealth increased from 16 billion dollare in I860 to 70 billion now. Tbe foreigners eagerly seek tola mark'et to sell their products. We taxed them for tbe privilege. It is the only tax they pay to our government." Borne idea ot tbe wealth of this oonntry and how the "plain people" have become rich by taxing tberneelvea can be learned from the last census report for which we again acknowledge our iudebtefaefw to Congressman Dolliver. The statistics abow that 0 per oeut of tb,e people of this country own 91 per oeut ot all our wealth. Tfeus leaving 91 per oent of our people Iu only own 9 per oeut of tbe wealth and tbiv, too, at tbe rate iu which it bee gone into (lie bands of the few daring the peat ten yet>r«, will noon have disappeared. They alao show hat daring tbeee year* nine of tbe eastern atatee bave iuoreaeed tbeir wealth 8 billion, in th« IUM period 21 of the largest western .states including Illinois and Iowa only increased one half of tlmt omonnt. During this time theee 21 western sWtefl' increased tWeir populHtion H5 ; per oent, their wealth 46 per cent, end tbeir mortgages were increased 165 par cent The' private indebtedness of this oonntry, the amount the 91 per oeut of our population owe to the 9 per. o<>ut, aggregates the alarming total of one thousand millions of dollare— three times tbe amount of all of our public indebted- uejsa, incladlrng natiotlBl, e'ate^ county and mnnipipal. The amount of internet they are .compelled tu pny will .neHrly pay Jtbe entire running expenses of tbe government or would in a few years pay off the entire public indebtedness of tbie oonntry. This is the. way the plain people of tbie country became rich and prosperous during the Republican days which congressman Hepburn eaye that "we taxed the foreigner for the privilege of trading with pur people." If the foreigner WHS taxed some one else paia the bill and it looks very much as if the west bad been robbed to pay not only the foreigner but to increase tbe wealth of theee nine eastern stales to a fabulous amount. A few years more of this "taxing the foreigner" will reduce the west to a condition worse than the slaves were in when it took millions of dollars and thousands of lives to give them their liberty. Eugene V. Debs, in his great speech at Chicago last Saturday evening, said that "the west is a new land and ought to be one of homes • but what must be the outcome at such a condition as the mortgage record for these. states shows. The statistics show that while the owners of land in tbe west increased 2| per oent renters increased 40J per bent. In other words twenty men lost their homes for every man who gained a home." This is the way the Republicans raised 175 millions by taxing tbe producers of tbis country on what was lr ought here from foreign countries. This, too, being only a mere pittance to tbe amount tbut these producers were compelled to pay to the trusts and monopolies of jtbia country who by reason of the tariff ware enabled to compel the consumers of tbeir wares 'to ' pay a much higher rate for their gooda than they otherwise could, ha'd it riot been for this tariff wall which tbe fepubluwne bad placed about par oonntry. Who has been benefited by this wall ? Surely not the laborer,ror 76 per cent of our people live in rented houiNHi. 'Not the maaeaa of tbe people, for 91 per oent of them only own 9 .par oe'oV of the wealth of our country. Sdirety ,uot the farmer* of |na west, for during the past ten yeara they huvein- oreaaed their mortgaged indebteduew 106 par cent.or in other worda,where the farmers owed one dollar tea yeaifs ago bow be owas 166 dollare. Aud for every man who baa bought a farm to live on twenty farmere bave bad tbpirs taken away from them for debt.

Would you. not think that we were fools and a disgrace to the great principles of Democracy T Still the intelligent cult in the Herald office ie doing tbe very, same thing about Democratic nominees.

The Revival of Trade. "The dark clouds is not tbe setting sun of protection, but tbe shadow of Democracy rapidly passing away. A mighty' Republican -victory aLvarious points of Hie United States is rapidly clearing away the ominoUB clouds, aiid throwing a flood of \\K\\t on the darkened honm of the American laboring man. 1 ho deserted mine, the idle looms and spindles, will ere long resound from tbe touch of industry, as a result of the courage emanating from the ballot box."—Prom the speech of Governor Jackson at the McKinley mooting at Des Moinos. O( all tbe farcical, nonsensical deliver- slices by a Republican spell-binder tbis is tbe woret. Governor Jackson eclipses even MoKinley in tb'e absurdity of hie claims. The latter merely says what will follew Republican victory, but Jackson says tb'at tbe present revival of business is caused by the fact that peo pie think tbe Republicans are going to be victorious in the future. , Only tne boundless egotism of a set of speakers and writers who bave been believed by tbeir deluded followers .iu tbeir every statement of economic falsehood, would be equal to such an emergency as tbis. tiere ie the condition of things told in a few words: After four years of Harrison and MoKinley, Cleveland and Democracy are placed in power to find the treasury empty and the country uo the verge of a panie. Before a law bus been passed by tbe Democratic party the bard times created by Republican laws is attributed) to tbe party that bad bad no power to control legislation for over thirty yeiire, Within eighteen months, however, (be Democracy does accomplish some needed reforms in the way of legislation and lo! tba clouda immediately pas* away and "tbe deserted mine, tbe idle looms and spindles" now "resound from tbe touch of industry," not as a reiult of any faith, in tbe triumph of Republioaniuna, but baoauae, tba ibaoklea whioh bave beau placed upon trade by high tariffs have been thrown off, and because tbe people know lloKinleyiem ie dead, nevei to be revived. Tbe revival of business U having tbis affeof, that McKinley is tbe only Republican oamp'aigoar left who oUima that wa are still in tba midst of tba pauio.

Facto About Sugar. Every time you buy a dollar's worth of ingar you tjivo four pounds of sugar to he trust. Still wo are told tbat tbej-bill liat procures 17 pounds to the dollar is tetter than tbat which gave 21 pounds to lie dollar,—Carroll Herald. Tbis ie the way the Republican papers leceive their readers or they are ignor- >nt of the facts about which tbfey are diking. On tbe 28th day ot August, when the new tariff bill want into effect, ngar was quoted at 4.72 cents flash. )otober 6 the quotation for the same rode of sugar was 4 41 cents cash. On .ugust 1 of tbis year it was 4 50 and ticket actually ottered to pay the at' penee ot one of his rival aspirants for th uomiimtioa in tbe event that his rivft was defeated and that be was euooesefo iu securing M « DomiDfitiou.

This is a position in politics wbiob should be encouraged rather than to heap shame upon those who are willing to do'by others in politics as they would tie done by. Then tbe lot of rot Herald goee on with about its columns being lie WBB iu advance ot the passage of onrred. the bill. But previous to this dale* When tbe passage of the bill *AS »»ot iin> tioipated and before auy adviinco had been tnnde from reason of tariff legiglft- tloo eagw WAS quoted at 4 45 cents mian, From tbie it is evident that sugar bae not indrnaifld in prloe by the pwenoge ot the ^ilfldn bill. It the grocer is charging mor • for sugar now than he WBB previous to the passage ot tbe bill he is do- Ins? wrong, for there^ie no advance in the markets that warrants him in so doing. Bngnr is gradually growing cheaper. The immense yields of this year's ero'pe render it impossible to dispose of it and maintain a high rate. Shipments of sugar are now being offered to be made/ for the first eix months in'96 at 4.17 cent* landed in New York against the present quotations oil 4 41. It there ia any indication in tbis that sugar will be higher by reason of the tariff at any reasonable date the Herald will do well to lay in a supply to be delivered next June at a rate of 24 cents per hundred pounds lesa than it is now and 28 cents less than it was bfefore th'e passage of the Wilson rill was eVen anticipated. Mow and Four Years Ago. A lending Indiana newspaper has- oftuvaBaed the businessmen in tbe Important cities ot that state. Four years ego these business men told tbe reporter .bat manufactured goods we're' advancing n p.- ice, tbon'gh they could hot hear of idvanoe in wages of faototy bands. This year they find prices of goods going down; and without auy reduction n wages since the tariff bill wee passed. • bey say tbat they can reduce prices materially to their customers without iminiebing their margin of profit. These merchants all observe a decided' tendency to improvement in the quality f goods. Them is lesa ot shoddy in 'oolena and less of the spurious in most(her lines. This paper is on the right truck. The 'omen who bay for the household will B the ardent tariff reformers as they earn the truth about prices and quality f goods. . Stray Oalf.
