The splendid results of the roclprocily arrangement.* that WIT,: made under authority of the tariff law o'f'lt'l.iO are striking and suggestive. The brief period they were in force, in ,most cases only three years, was not long enough to thoroughly test their irreat value, but sufficient was shown by the trial to conclusively demonstrate the Importance and the wisdom of their adoption. In 1S02 the export u-ade of the United States attained the highest point In our history. The aggregate ot" our exports that year .reached the immense sum of !?1.0oO,- ,278,148. a sum greater by i?] 00.000,000 than the exports of any previous year, Ju 1S03, owing to the threat of uu- Vrioudly tariff legislation, the total dropped to i?WT,G05,10-J-. Our exports of domestic merchandise ' decreased Jj-lSO.OOO.OOO. but reciprocity still secured us a large, trade in Central and South America and a larger trade with the West Indies than we haa ever before enjoyed. The increase .of trade. with the countries with which we had reciprocity agreements was ?3,DGO,i313 over our trade in-.lSOi", and $10,440,721 over our trade in 1802, The only countries with which the United States traded that showed Increased exports in 3S03 were practically those with which we had reciprocity agreements. The reciprocity treaty between this country and Spain, touching the markets of Cuba and Porto Rico was announced Sept, 1, 1S01. -The growth of pur trade with Cuba was phenomenal. In ] SOI we sold that country but 114,4-11 barrels of hour; iu 1802, 300,175; in 1803', C1G,40G and in 1S04 022,248 barrels. Here was a growth of nearly 500 per cent., while otir expectations of flour to Cuba for the year ending June 30, 1S9D— the year following the repeal of the reciprocity treaty— fell to 379,890 barrels, a loss of nearly half our trade with that country. The value of out- total exports of merchandise from the United States to Cuba in ISOl-the year prior to the negotiation o£ the reciprocity treaty-was ?12,224,SSS; in 1802, $17,953,570; in 1803, $24,157,008; in 1S04 $20,125,321, but in 1805,. after the annulment of the reciprocity agreement. it fell to only $12,887,001. "Many similar examples might be given of our increased trade under reciprocity with other countries, but enough has been shown of the efficiency o£ the legislation of 1S90 to Justify the speedy restoration of its rccl- .proclty provisions. In my Judgment Congress should immediately restore the reciprocity section of the old law, with such amendments, it any, as time 'and experience sanction as wise and proper. The underlying principle of tills- .legislation must, however, bo strictly observed. It is to afford new markets for our surplus agricultural and the manufactured products, without loss to the American laborer of a single day's work that he might otherwise produce."— Wm.

MORE RECENT "CRIMES." Inter Ocean: Mr. Bryan in his speech at "Albany took up his old complaint against "the crime of 1873" and called to his aid that grim and terrible prophecy made by Secretary Carlisle nearly. twenty year* ago. It may suit the cheap political trickery of the Democratic candidate to harp on this string and gather all the woes of the country in,, a procession with the domoiietlza- t%i j of silver as the cause, but intelligent, men will 'naturally ask, "Why, ..then did the. golden age of industrial 'prosperity in this country follow "the crime of 1873?" They will naturally flx a more recent crime- or blunder, which will -be more closely associated- in their minds with the beginning of (lad a buyer. The A:iii>rican blundered in that year a:id the-l.'eui- ocratic parly can:c into power, and came as near criminal legislation'as was eve: - written hi the statute ,buuks by enacting n bill which struck down many of our itiMusU'ies mid turned thousands uf laborers upon tl; .• si reel without- iiie.'ins of support. Senator Frye of Maine 1ms been giving some attention to Mr. Bryan's speeches, and he re minds the Democratic candidates (hat thoiv must have been sonic cause for our troubles since ]$?.'',. for the most manvlous decade iu our history was tfTat from 1SSO to ISDfi. followed.by the hamier yca.t: of prosperity in 181)2. Mulliall. die English statistician, refers"10 that decade as the most inarveloos in tlie history of any nation. Senator Frye says that Bryan must have forgotten that in 1802 these United States had one-lil'th of all the wealth of tlie world, and 'that more than half of it. was made after 1ST.": Great Britain, Germany, and France laid up from 1873 to 1S02 !?HO,000,000,000, w,hilo the United States accumulated $38,000,000.000 or ?S,COO,000,000 more than the three wealthiest nations of Europe combined. In 1SJ3 our agricultural- product was worth $2,000,000,000, and in 1S02 It was worth ,$5,500,000,000, or more, than- double that of the year from which Mr, Bryan dates our downfall. Between 1S73 nluil 1S92 we paid 91,232,000,000 of our iuir tional debt and saved $IB,000,000,'In interest. In 1SOO our- manufactured product was half that, of Great Britain, and in 1S02 it was-twice greater. The cause for the hard times is-easily found nearer tlie beginning "of thu hard times. Senntor Frye found .-that cause-in the Democratic victory,- the throat of free trade, and tho loss.ot confidence iu American enterprise. He found the cause aggravated by. the ;repeal of the McKinley law and, the enactment of the Wilson law. In.the.ljist year of tho McKiuley law we imported $10,000,000 worth of woolens,, and! iri the first.year of the Wilson law we jn^ ported $00,000,000 worth. I u 189.2 W paid $80,000,000 to workingmeu iu fhc: woolen industries, and In 1895 we phl'd only $40,000,000 to those • employes. That gave the employes in the woolen mills just $40,000,000 less to-spend for- food and clothes in one year, and the. farmers lost'a'good share of It. What is true of the woolen mills is true; oi> other industries, and, as every Intelligent voter knows that the hard times began in 1S93, they will naturally jas? sociate the cause with tho political: events that preceded it. Tlie. voters ot this country committed a great political blunder In 1S02, and they, know!'it: They are not going into ancient history; to find the .cause and allow Mr. to bring up "the crime of 1873,'.' a'ny more than they are going to allow some: cracked-brained astrologist to find the' cause for the hard times in tho great comet of 18G3 or the transit of Venus- in 1SS4. The cause-and effect are too, closely associated to forget, the blun-: dor of 1892. , . • ! Since 1878 there have been nine, epidemics of dysentery In different parts of the country in which. Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy- was used with perfect success. Dyson- tery, when epidemic, is almost as severe and dangerous as Asiatic cholera. Heretofore tlie best efforts of the most.elillled; physicians have failed to check Its-ravr ages, this remedy, however, Las cured i the most malignant cases, both of children, and adults, and under the nJost. trying.conditions, which proves It,to; be the best medicine In the world for bowel complaints.

' a realization of the fact that a. preaclmr knows sotm-tliing about the questions of the day, and is able to-discuss these Kjucstions in a forcible manner.

His talk was mainly on the point of Major McKinley's personality and his sentiments regarding Americanism and American institutions. • He spoke briefly but to the point, and was he.'irtly applauded. The glo.o club, which had not before been present, came iu at this time and sung a-song which was heartly cheered, and another selection was demanded and given. S. B. Boycr was • then called on and made a forcible •live-minute talk.

Nowadays, the people .wear a fringe, but it is not ot purple; It is tho fringe of their worn garments.' and it serves to remind them of what a Democratic administration has done for them.

Georgetown 1 was visited by George Funk and George Gamble, At this place also there was no room in .the school building for all who wanted to hear the speakers. There-was a well known Populist who sat at the front aud badgered the. speakers with questions. ' He was answered to the satisfaction of the. crowd in every cnse. . Mr. Funk was explaining the fall of the price of oats. He said that oats were now 13 cents a .bushel: The Populist said, "I .only got C cents-for mine."

Every Topocratic organ in.the country- has been publishing an alleged article from the London Financial News, in which it was declared that the free coinage of silver by this country would "put Great Britain out of the markets of-'the world." The London Financial News, iu an editorial published in its issue of August 13, makes the following explicit denial: "No such article was'ever-printed by us, and its whole tenor is'directly opposed to the view we have taken of tlie effect of free silver in the United States.- So- far from advocating free silver coinage, we have persistently pointed out that it spells repudiation, and the withdrawing of all European capital."
