THE result of Monday'n election in Arkansas is not only an indorsement of a capable and decent State government, but it i-lso an indication of the growing strength ot those principles and policies which the Democratic party supported in the last Presidential campaign The opposition to tbe Democratic State ticket at Mondays election was centered in the candidacy of Mr. FIZER, nominated by the so-called Farmers' and Laborers' Union party, and endorsed by the Republicans. The sole hope acd reliance of the opposition was in the possibility of drawing from tne support of the Democratic ticket enough of the votes of farmers and workingmen to defeat it. The result is entirely satisfactory to Democrats, not only because it saves the State from repudiating honest men and methods of government, but because it is an assurance that the efforts of the Republican leaders to obscure the leal issues of the hour and turn away from the Democratic party, on false lines, the elements most interested in its success, have failed. The people understand themselves. Tbe example of Arkansas will be felt throughout the country.-Republic. DEMOCRATIC COUNTY TICKET. For Representative-J. F. O'KILEY. For Sneriff-- E. L. TAYLOR.

HENDERSON. THE infamous HcKmley tariff bill has been passed by the Senate, and the poor deluded farmer will be called upon shortly to ratify it; but he won't. THE St. Joseph News, one of the brightest of evening papers in Missouri, stands by the old state royally Ihd says: "After all that s said and done, however, Missouri is tbe best agricultural state in the union. The farmers are more prosperous than in any other western state. Her farm loans command a higher premium among eastern money loaners than in any other state in the Union, as we were recently informed by one of the largest money lenders in Connecticut, and aa long as she keeps clear from prohibition she will continue to be the Eden of the west." It should also be remembered that Missouri is democratic to the core. THESE never was a time in the history of this country when politics required such serious, practical and honest study. Beset on one side with isms and visionary theories and ideas of governmental functions and on the other with disbonesty,deniagog ury and political corruption, the conservative elements are powerless to elevate and purify the political forces of the nation. The practical idea of reform and redress to day is the formation of new parties, presenting for issues, generalities, or "isms" and intolerant of contradiction or opposition. "Isms" lead to fanatics ism or revolution, and generalities to inertia disappointment and disgust. Thus, new parties by dividing the honest, intelligent and patriotic ele* ments become stumbling blocks to reform and fiar more securely the grasp of monopoly and capital on tbe liberties and privileges of the people. --Ex. Paying for One's Own- How the present tariff works to the disadvantage of the farmer in making him pay for foreign goods bought with his own products is pretty well illustrated in the following extract from Grissom's "Tariff Primer.:" Question. What foreign country buys most of our farm produce? Answer. Great Britian. CJ. Does it levy important duties on it? A. It does not. It admits our breadstuffs and meats and provisions free of duty, and buys very largely of them. Q. Yon say our protective tariff forces us to pay $1,50 for what we can buy abroad for $1. A. Yes. Q. Then a man might buy abroad for f 500 articles that would at home cost him 9750 ? A. Yes. Q. Now, suppose a Missouri farmer takes his crop of wheat--500 bushels--to Liverpool, sells it for (500, and lays out the money in articles of necessity which are cheaper there than here, and brings them to thia country--would he be allowed to bring them in free of duty? A. No. Q. What! Not if he brought them on the same vessel with himself? A. No. He would have to pay the duty. Q. But they are his own goods, bought with the proceeds of his own Missouri wheat, raised by the sweat of his own brow; indeed, they are his own wheat value in a different form? A. That makes no difference; our tariff law will compel him to pay the 50 per cent, duties to them. Q. But a 50 per cent, duty on them would be $250, and that would make his $500 worth of English goods, bought with his Missouri, wheat cost him $750 in the end ? A. It would indeed. Q Well, suppose the farmers of St. Charles county should poo! their wheat crop--1,000,000 bushel send it to Liverpool in charge of one of their number, with instructions to sell it and lay out the proceeds in certain necessaries; he sells tbe grain for 8100,000, and invests the money in goods as directed would tbe goods in this case be required to pay import duty ? A. They would. Q. But the duty on them would be 9500,000, and this would increase the cost to 81,500,000? A Yea. Q. And, besides, it looks like a tax of 850,000 on the St. Charles county wheat crop ? A. It is a tax of half a million dollars on the St. Charles county wheat crop. SPEAKINGS. Col. C. H.

Farmers furnished the majorities that elected Mr. Harrison anc gave the Republicans a majority in both Houses, and they may well be proud of ihe result Let every farm er see to it that his vote ia so out as not to pnt an end to agricultural pros perity, by putting it in the power oi the solid South by tbe control of one Honse to stop the good work tbe Re. publicans are doing.--Tina Herald.

T. F. Hutsixotov, Agent. SLAVERY. Congo end Angola Blacks Who Lire FÂ»r From Their Old Borne. Scattered along the coast.,of West Africa in Sierra Leone and Liberia are a number of settlements known M Angola town and Congo town. The ancestors of the people who lire In. these little hamlets, were born hundred* of miles south of the places where their children are found to-day. They were mitres of Angola and' the Congo region. Many of them belong to the great Bantee family, and they know rery different languages from those of the negro tribes among whom they now live. These handfuls of Southern African people scattered among the inhabitants of Liberia and Sierra Leone are more fortunate than many thousands of their friends who toiled away their lives as slavea on the plantations of the West Indies and Brazil. For these settlements were made by rescued slaves, who were taken by tbe cruisers of the civilized nations from the holds of slaw vessels. They were bound for the West Indies or Brazil, for very few of the Congo or Angola blacks were brought to this country Probably ninety-nine in a hundred of the black residents of this country came originally from the west coast, between Senegambia and Came- roons, while Brazil received most ot her hundreds of thousands ot slaves from Congoland and Angola. So these more fortunate captives, who were rescued before they had been teken far from their native land, were settled far north of the Congo at points where they could be pfotected against slavers. There they have lived over since, and not a few of tbe children born In their new homes still talk the lan- ffuag*9 of the southern tribes. Many of them have been Christianized, are tolerably industrious, and their lot has been quite fortunate, considering the terrible fate they so narrowly escaped. Awhile ago Mr. H. Chatelain visited the Angola settlement at Sierra Leone. He says in the African News that the Style oi the houses, the methods of the field cultivation, and the features of the people carried him at once back to Angola, where he had long resided. In Ma* bouse he found an old man, to whom be spoke in Kimbunder, one of the Ian- yuages of Angola. The old man was surprised and overjoyed, and, opening Us shatters, called out to his neighbor to come and see the man who had been in Angola and spoke Kimbunder. They crowded around, and were greatly snr- priied to see a white man who could talk with them in a language they had not heard from others since the; were shipped from Loanda as slaves. Chatelain found that tbSy bad entirely discarded their old belief in charms and fetiches, and have espoused tbe faith the missionaries taught them Some of these people wished to return with their white friend to the old home of their fathers, but he could not take them. There are thousands of these jeople in tbe West Indies and Brazil who have vivid recollections of Angola and Congoland, but never expect to see their native shores again The people of Paynesville, Liberia, are nearly all released slaves of Congo origin. About two years ago many of them were aeiced with a craze to return to the Congo. The Congo State was glad to encourage this immigration, for the Siberian Congoese are industronq, and have made considerable progress Abont fifty of them went back and settled near the mouth of tbe river. The Congo Government gave them ten acres of land each and rations for a year They are not pleased, however, with the change they have made, and have written discouraging letters to Liberia that have stopped further immigration Bishop Taylor reports the Paynesville Congoese as saying, after they had heard from their friends "We no go to Congo no more Liberia is the home dat God give us, and we atop here till He calls us "--N Y Sun.
