Led by the New York Post and New York Times, Democratic papers all over the Country, have been making much ado over the fact that "no commercial tin plate is manufactured in the United States." What of it liretheren? The Eepublican press is willing to concede the point that commercial tin is not manufactured at present to any ex ten i in this country, for such is in fact the case. Republican papers have called attention to the fact that tin plate of a superior quality, has already been manufactured in the United States, since the passage of the McKinley bill, and such is the fact. It has been manufactured in a small way, chiefly as a matter of experiment, and that is all. It will be remembered how the Democratic papers declared that no tin plate could be made in this country, etc. Certain of the free- trade press, even went so far as to aver that we had no tin in this country from which to make tin plate. The fact that a superior article of tin plate, made of American tin by American work-men, has already been produced since the passage of the McKinley bill has been deemed worthy of note by the Republican papers. The way in which the "organs" are calling attention to the fact that no .commercial tin plate has yet been manufactured, is only a Democratic subterfuge and does not prove that it never will be. Will the Democratic party give us time to build a few tin plate mills, and put them in operation? Don't they know that it requires time to do that, and don't they know that the new duty on tin plate does not.go into effect until July 1st? The tin plate industry in this country, is already fulfilling the expectations of its friends. The following named works—11 in numder—for the manufacture of tin plate are already erected or in process of erection: 1. United States Iron and Tin Plate Company, limited, Demmeler, Pa. 2. P. H.

CALKINS. The Democratic papers are rejoicing over the fact that no commercial tin plate to speak of, has yet been made in America. .They all seem to be glad of it: if consistent they ace glad of it. The Farm and Home says that "This attempt to cram the sub-treasury scheme down the throats of the farmers won't work." The Western Rural which is a strong alliance paper says; If legislation has been oppressive, if tbe old parties have passed unjust laws and legislated in favor of classes, and neglected the interests of the toiling ^millions, the remedy is not retaliation, and the new national movement which "all sbape the policy of the government i broader, aaa higher lines of action, «J11 not be assisted toto creation by the Keelar&tion of principles, as a whole, ad- y'jpted at •Cincinnati. The farm/presjf iu pot committed to /to tbe CiooiBii^l movement. Nearly every farm paper i» the Country that does not condemn it ignores it. The farmers are not "in it." A YEAM OF PROSPERITY The REPUWOAF is BOW a ten page paper. An increasing patronage, has made the two extra pages advisable, and fc a lack of space, has made tbem a necessity. Our subscription lift bw beep steadily growing, during the p&et twelve months, and at tbe same time, our advertising patronage has had a steady increase.

A meeting of manufacturers who have already entered or purpose to enter upon the manufacture of tin plate was held in Pittsburg May 20 and an organization effected under the name "Tinned Plate Manufac turers Association of the United States." Twentd six firms and companies were represented in the meeting. If the next congress can be prevented from disturbing the tariff, there is no doubt but that within the next few years we will not only be making commercial tin plate but making enough and more than enough to supply the American market. This will be of incalculable benefit to the entire country, from the tin mines of California to the tin factories of New York. Meanwhile, what of the tax on the tin dinner pail in which the poor laboring man carries his dinner? A tin plate importer down in cently gave in his testimony to the Boston Post to the effect that whereas he is now paying the Welsh tin trust 17 shillings and 6 pence per box for ordinary coke tin he has offers as low as 18 shillings 3 pence for July delivery after the "infamous" tax takes effect. This is pointed to by the Post as corroborating the statement made recently by a Welchman, that the foreign manufacturers would pay the increased duty rather than surrender the American market. If there is any satisfaction to the Democratic papers now in talking about tin plate they should improve the opportunity for the hour of their satisfaction will soon be gone- Mrs. Herbert Bailey has been yery low with measles and a complication of diseases, asthma being tlie principal. At this writing she is considered a trifle better. Myron Clapsaddle spent a few days at LuVerne visiting relatives. Mr. Hare sports a fine new cart and single harness.

SWEA Special Correspondence SWBA June 9.—A party of the young folks had a picnic at the lakes a week or so ago. There was also a large delegation from Bancroft up there at tbe same time.

The biographies of Handel and Goethe were read, and the lives of Page and Hogarth were recited by Mr. C. Buker and Miss Emma Smith. The Choir furnished some excellent music, as it always does. The members of the Baptist church recently presented Capt. Jeanson with a beautiful silver tray and cake basket as a token of their esteem for him. The singing class, under the instruction of Rev. Chas. Anderson, is progressing nicely. Rev. Anderson is a student of Morgan Park school in Chicago and is out here in the service of the Baptist church for the summer. He is doing a good work for tbe young people in the line of music as well as in a moral way. Miss Emma Smith has charge of the class during his two weeks absence.
