In the words of David Bennett Hill, all that is necessary for a rousing Democratic victory in Oarroll county this year, is a thorough organization. "Organize, organize, organize." The Republican orators and newspapers still keep up the "calamity" howl, bnt the sound of turning wbeelo and whirring epindlea is making it doubtful if they can maintain tbe pace until after election. • ' • ~ • 'A 'thorough organization and a full vote mean* an old-time Demooralio victory. Township chairmen and others who have tbe interest of oar party at 1 bear} should .see (bat tbe organization is complete and effectual.' . .1 Oar esteemed contemporary is still very quiet in ite opposition to tbe Democratic policy ot tbe income tai. It it possible that tbe campaign it going to past without ite vigorous denunciation of tbis "ontrBgeons"( ?) law? The Herald aud Die Germaniu are training together and both have their batteries leveled on Bobroeder, the Democratic candidate for clerk. Sobroedor must be a horrid man when Hangerford •nd hie friend Florenoonrt both reject bin. • • With eqfor gpiog down and wool going up oar Repnblioan frieudfl are at a low which way to two for on argument, «bd are forced to,retnrp *P tbe "calamity" bowl. Old "OalMnity" Weller in his palmiest day* could not bold a caudle to the average Republican esborter of these tlmea, ^ • Beuotor John Sherman, in hie "key note" speech at Akron, Ohio, aald he "is oot and never wot an extreme protection lit," «ud Upl "Bodatiw should be kvi*d for protection that we no) needed for nfeji'ue," What U the difference be. | weeV thl* jK^iWou aod tbe Demoor«tio "t«rUT\ for ravMM only »" We oongr«t«v Jut* Mito f i*** KtpobUottn leader on bi* INFLATING THRItt BALOONS. return, to; Democratic, principles of i taxation, where he and Allison- and other Republicans stood for years, before? the monopolists .of, the.east came, into fujl possession,of their party. , Bat where, oh where, will MoKin'ey be in bis presidential tight it the Nestor of Ohio Republicans declares against him ?. Kempkeris making B winning campaign.. , The,only ..^question ..regarding him is as to what; tbe mfljnrity.'-,will be. Wherever he goes he is met with favor, for all .him a man worthy of their .fullest,, confidence. Kempker .will make, a model official and bis election ie conceded by all. > laborers to do work that should be done bv Americans, and will resent Mr. Morfon's actions at the polls. The sugar question proved B sort>,of boomerang for our neighbor on Main street. Sugar has kept going down since tbe Wilson bill passed until now it is almost as low as it ever sold fin- this country. In some places where there is a fight on the article it is selling at twenty-one pounds for a dollar^ 0. B. Fleuker, the Democratic candidate, ia one of the solid and substantial farmers of Washington township and ie. tbe soul of-'honor and is the Kind of a man the people want on the board of supervisors. He will be elected by the largest majority of any candidate on the ticket. ' County Auditor Hombaoh is before the people ugain this year asking for their support for a second term. He hue Sited tbe office for two years and has made one of tbe best auditors Oarroll county, ferns ever bad. He is deservedly popular: with tbe voters and will be elected by a large mujority; if competency and fuitb- falness in office is taken into consideration tbe voters will be umimimous in his support Oeo. W. Korte is making ti clean cut nvfles for B second election to tbe office of ermuf-y attorney. The record be bus made during bis first term is all that tbe people ask for in order to give him the second. Hw has been alert to tbe interests of tbe people and by bis success in prosecuting violators of the law has won the confidence of all law-abiding citizens who will see that his conduct of public affaire will be indorsed at tbe polls. • The MoKinley itee »bo are denouncing Congressman Wilson for what be did not say in London have probably forgotten that when General Grant was on bis grand tear around the world be also made speeches in England in recognition of precisely each civilities as were extended to Chairman Wilton. Probably they have forgotten that in an address in Birmingham, October 17, 1877 (ae recorded by John Raseell Young),General Grant made tbe following remarks in tbe nature of prophecy: 1 think we are. rapidly progressing Ju the way of establishing manufactories ourselves, anoM believe we shall become one of the Kro»teBt free • trade nations on the face of the earth, aud when wo botfi come to be freetraders 1 think that probably the balance of nations hod better stand atilde and not contend with us at all In the markets of the .world. The Republican idea of protection to American labor ie exemplified in their candidate' for governor of New York, who violated the contract labor'law in order to eeeure on uiialant coachman who bad served tbe aristocracy of England. Mr. Morton in a typical anglo- mitniao who thinks the American laborer ie uot good enough for him, but must toady to the Englieb aristocracy, and if a man bus beer near royalty be BO much more valuable. Mr. Morton is a kindly old gentleman, bat be is like many other Republican statesmen who howl "pro teotiuu toj tbe American laboring map" with their mouth, while they import foreign labor to do tUir work for then. His iuauy charitable aoU reflect credit upon him, bat tbe average American oitieeu prater* working for bit living to dependence apon charity. Hence they cannot feel very friendly toward thoee vbo oouuteuauoe tit* iiuporUliou of "Whose Breafl I Eat His Sing.'' ., ',,,, • J. H. Sohroeder is,making a fair, mnnly Qgiit, , uot withstanding the fact tlit.t bis opponent and bis'hemiltmei) are resorting to (be-same old tactics they hnve cverv time he b^as tried to, get ioto tbe court bouse, but the people have got tired of Billy'e mud > slinging. Tbp voters of Oarroll county take no stock in a man who bBS no higher conception than to tbiuk that the only way to rice in this world,is by, putting BOOM one alee down. Tbe man who attempts to assassinate a naaii'e character or allows it to be done in bis interests, as Win. Mohr's henchmen hnve done has bc«>n in the fight for the county clerk's office, deserves, no consideration at tbe hands of the voter?. Read the'attacks.they buve made upon Funk; and two years later upon TCeune- beck, and then again two years later upon Sobroeder, and you will not wonder why it is that people are disgusted with this style of campaigning. Their great cry is boodle and bribery, as if be were the only honest man iu Oarroll county. The Farm Journal says this week that it will publish an affidavit next week setting forth the feet that Billy has been guilty of the very charge he makes against bis opponent. For us, we deplore this style of campaign work, but tbe history of Billy'B campaigns all go to prove that we can not look for anything different so long as he dictates the policy of the Herald and Die Germania during elections. Floreucourt aaid in the Democratic county convention, when his Democracy was questioned, "that be whose bread I eat bis song I sing." AH be came cot in an editorial tins week for Molir for clerk, it might be fair to draw a logical conclusion, bnt we will give him tbe benefit ot tbe doubt and ajlow our readers to decide why be boiled tbe Democratic ticket and supports \V H, Mobr, who is LOW wading through the mire of tbe third campaign be has ui'ide for the same office. Prophetic. Abraham 'Lincoln wrote to Stephen Elkins in 1861 nnd clearly foretold the future'of this country with the exception, t'hat the republic would be destroyed,'for', blessed be our native land, \>y aot'ing upon the timely warning given, the thinking voters decided that the evils which Lincoln forsuw should be placed under control before it is toJ> lute. Lincoln's words of wisdom were as follows:. ' ; •As a result of (be war corporations have <beeu enthroned and an era of cor rupUonin lilgb places .will follow, and tlm money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of Mm people; until nil wealth ,!»• aKgreatfldln a few l^ndif, Inud tbe republic Is destroyed. 1 feel at Mils moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than uvur before, even In, Hit) midst of war. God Krant that my suspicions may urove groundless. ' Thirty yeure have passed by since 'these words were spoken and how prophetic they sound. Today ninety per' cent of nil the wealth is owned bv nine per cent of our people. Soventy-eu per cent is dependent upon tbe majesty of the landlord for the means of subsist- an'ce; nnd thirty-seven billion of dollars' of public and private indebtedness has been accumulated, with tho mortgaged record during the past ten years showing an iuoru:m«3 of 16$ per cent, it looks as if ihe"woney power had prolonged iu reign by working upon the prejudioua ot the people" until tho prophetic words of, honest old Abo arc literally fulfilled, BO far as tho centralization of the wealth of the country is concerned' But the poo- pie of this country who love our form ot government; who love their homos and desire to prosper uud sec their neigh, bora do the siiaio, declared by their vote in 1800 imd uguin in *02 that "the money power Imd prolonged IU» roigu by working upon tho prejudices of tho people", loug enough, Aud now, unless those hired ouluuiity howlere who arc raiding this country froui coutor to uiruuuifor ence in the' interest of the money power, can pursuade you and me that we were fools when we voted that their, reign should close, 1 the 'evils which 'Lincoln so graphically forsaw have hnppily been averted. .But a surrender on our part, at this-time, of,: the great victory we I have won will only intensity the evils J arising from our social 'inequalities nnd more firmly fasten their hold upon "the prejudices of the people" than ever'be- fore. Those whp have been engaged in this great struggle for: the liberty and righte.of : the masses against the wealth of the country should not grow despon- i dent. It 1 is a life or death struggle with i the party who brought these evils upon us by "thirty years of> tariff legislation which culminated in those monstrosities called.the McKinley bill and the Sher-, i man silver law, both of which ore now | repealed.i The party: which wae the author of all these evils is again asking to be'returned to power "to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudice of the people," just when the country is beginning to recover from the "drunken debauch in which they left it." The dnrk cloud of industrial depression is rapidly passing away and in another year we will be prosperous ns a nation. Stnnd by the principles of Democracy for they are right and hove safely brought the proud old ship of state out of the whirlpool in which the tariff tinkers and the money power had placed it and where it was rapidly being driven to destruction. Tho prayer ot Abraham Lincoln when he said, "May God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless," will be answered if those who voted that "the reign of tbe money power should not be prolonged by working upon the prejudices of the people," stand firm and turn ii dent ear to tho piteous wailings of the hired calamity howlers. They have always been against the people and are the same today. "Unprecedented Prosperity." Our esteemed oouterapornrv is vary gliul nt times to quote from the news columns of THE SENTINEL, items thai apparently serve its purpose in argument. Amsug othur rbOdiit news notee we notiaed the following which as yet, hae oot appared iu its oolnms: rrO»|>«'rlly In Fonnaylvnnl*. ' isuuuG, Oct. 15,—Iron and steel mills in this locality are enjoying an cru of unprecedented prosperity. At the Pennsylvania Bleed works the production of raik and btssuLuor sfcul hist week wtfci the heaviest for years. The three furnaces .in bloat averaged .nearly lid0 tons daily, The company has contracts for 1(Ki.OtK) tone or more of uirder rails. While we would uot expect an orguo of its hide-bound protectionist proclivities to give the Democratic party tljn credit for this "nupreoedented prosper- iiy," still it might publish this item for tbe sake of keeping its readors informed M to tbe immense revival in business tbat ie going forward «ll over tbe country. Readers who consult nothing but its columns must be in dense ignorance as to the real state of business in Ibis country. After election, however, we presume it will resume ite place us a purveyor ot news instead ot au organ ot a party which, just at the present time, U pinning its hopes of success upon ite ability to keep the voters of tbe country in ignorance of (be "unprecedented prosperity" which is resulting as HU effect of wise Democratic legislation.

Tbe effect of deorenset duties has been diametriCRlly opposite ti the effect produced by tbe increase it t. riff rates in 1890. Then there woe general advance.

Prosperity, it is 9onceded;on all hands, is rapidly return- ng. BilgineBs is reviving, but as com- >ored with one year ago, when tbe wheels ot trade were nearly motionless, be cost of living is very much less, al- hough, prices, : were somewhat lower- a veer ago than in 1891 or 1892, probably leonnee of the hard times. It is impossible to give iu this paper 11 the quotations, but we shall aim to ive below enough to show tbe trend- of tie market. Tbe prices buve been com- )iled from trade papers by a writer for tie New York World and while it is too nrly yet for tbe full benefit which the ieople will secure by reason of reduced uea to be manifested, it- is very clear mt it already costs less now to furnish table, less for shoes and clothing, less o build a boose; end while tbe new wool ohedule will uot go into effect until urinary 1, yet carpets are cheaper nl- eady and ohenper dress goods will soon e within reach of all the women of the sud. Further changes will be iuevit- ble and still business with all the man- fnctnrers in booming, tbe advantage of roe raw materials giving au impulse to branch of the nation's euterpiis e uah as hns not been known for years.

These specific nties ranged from 14 cents per square ard for ingrain to 60 cents per square nrd for Wilton and velvet floor coverage. The new tariff knocks off tbe specific nties altogether, and in many oneon miikas reductions in tbe ad vidorem ates. The comparisons are: Wuo'eaale Wholesale prices prices Oct. 18M.
