HOW THE1' ARE STARTING UP The starling up of Iho stone, quar ries In this county waa hailed by sov oral demoeratic papors aa positive evi deooo that good times were coming once more. The Illinois Stool Com pany gets its Hmo stone from these quarries and that thla company could operate at all was heraldtd as a posl live proof that It was not the tariff scare which caused the business do presslon. But no one has ever assert od that tho factories could not exist if the employes would work for nothing and when a factory starts up it Is wel to examine the facts and see whether or not wages aro starting t ack to tho nothing point. The Hammond Tribune says of these steel works that, "after months of idleness the works are again in opora tlon with 8,000 men employed where 6,000 wore given work heretofore. Bui this reduced force is not tho hardest feature of the "Democratic victory,' The cut in wages ranges from 20 to 25 per cent. Unskilled labor which received $1.50 per day In. 1892, Is starved into accepting f 1.00 per day now. Workmen who received $8 when Harrison was President now receive |2. Skilled workmen (heaters) who pay was $6,67 when Ihore was no threatof free trade tariff, are reduced to $3.34 under tho proposed Demo cralio legislation. That such a condi tlon should be characterized ai a "return of prosperity" is a burlesque. 'And an investigation will show lhat this is true of nearly every factory that has "started up." Free trade moans pauper wages or death to the Industry. , THE light in Alabama promises to be a bitter one. It la the Jefferson- Ian democracy against Cleveland. Chairman Sltaag of the Jeffersonlans say;: Many supporters of Mr. Cleveland in Alabama neither engage in nor indorse elocilon frauds. But it Is safe to say that every ballot box stufler ia a Cleveland man. Thla condition in Alabama has reduced the flght on tho part of the people, as I have said, for civil liberty and redemption from Cleveland; financial ruin, disappointed hopes, want and wretchedness have been the attending results of the election of Mr. Cleveland. In this fight party lines will bo cast aside. Democrats, Republicans and Populists will join in a common fight. It la not a fight fo,r the election of Kolb or any other man. Kolb is no more than an incident to a popular uprising. Many ol his supporters would prefer another man. He may be opposed by an abler or better man, but the people will never surrender their right to choose their own leaders and elect their own officers. Popular will has been suppressed by a limited class, who have :OmothlBg to gain in proportion to tho public loss. So long as the vital IB. lue of honest elections Is unsettled. ;horo Is no room for division of par;lea on economic or political questions. Public sentiment in Alabama Is as sincere and aggrcaalvo in demanding honest elections aa it is in New York or any other State. But unfortunately the press of our State refuses to ex- nose election frauds, and thus tho Me- £aneR have escaped punishment up to ,he present tlm°. CHARGES have been made against Postmaster Haoawalt and he will bo .nveatlgated. A Washington special o the Indianapolis Journal says: Official Investigations will soon be made of various charges of violation of the civil service law recently filed at the Civil-service Commissioner. Examiner George W. Laidley, of tho ommisaion left today for SRveral western and southern cities, where he will examine into charges of partisan- ihlp and other other alleged irregu- aritlea of tbe postoffice.

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOR'S VOTE CAN IONTROL THE BODY.-Pharos, May 6th, 1892.

He Comm to \VnnhlnKton mid StaM Until Ho JH llnadj for the roDrtiouto—A I'ooullur'I'haiM "f Our Political I.lf«. [Special Wiusltlnctim I.cltur.1 No matter what political party may bo in power llio ini)ii who sock office tviul fail to [irooim! official roeojrnition rftnrn tollioir homes with liourts full <i£ cnniitv towards thrir conffrussunen, thuir .senators and towards all the political world. They 0011 over in their druiims us well as in thi;ir waking hours the withered hopes, bitter. burning 1 wrongs they have within their hearts' hot cells shutup, until their entire natures become misanthropic. They who return to their homes are unhappy iudced, until thoy resume the daily avocations of li£e. Unl the other side of the officcseuker's existence is seen upon the streets of this city daily in tho persons of those who have come to Washington to procure office, have failed in their object and are ashamed to return to their homes for fear that somo of their compimions may jibe at them. There are more discontented people within the limits of thi* city than in any other community of its size in the world. The people' who come here on hopes outnumber the people who £0 to Europe on boats. Llurinp tho first year of every administration there must be not less 10,000 people who come to tliis city in the expectation of re- oeivin;; some sort of position on the (government pay roll; and from 500 to 1,000 out Of that number usually remain in the city ever afterwards. The majority of those who remain hero are composed mainly of the aspiring; politicians who came to Washington originally for the purpose of receiving important appointments in tho department of state, such as minister plenipotentiary, consul gcnural or consular agent to .some foreign country. The men who aspire to the most prominent positions are the men who are ashamed to return to their homes, and hciiee remain here until they become almost, if not quite, objects of charity; although they become objects of pity early in every season. When they como, *ich of them is somewhat like Mr. Wilkins Micawber; and, while paying hotel bills and other incidental expenditures, they are "waiting for something to turn up." These people do not come here in droves. They come trickling into Washington by day and by night, and the pity is that the}' do not trickle out again. The postmaster general is tho man mosk besieged by these people as long- iis they have any hopes. This is because seven-eighths of all the offices are under that control of that cabinet officer. The late Postmaster General Wnna- maker had an experience which was unique. In a littl^town not far from Washington city, there were three lady candidates for tho post office, and all three of them came in to see the postmaster general. One was about S'j, unmarried, and somewhat masculine in appearance. Another was fair, fat and forty, and the third a pretty brunette not more than twenty-five years of age. Now, instead of each one coming and presenting her letters and recommendations and then going home to await the outcome, they would como [n all together every day, wait for a office-hunters. These peculiar people" attend the public receptions of the wives of congressmen, make acquaintances them, exchange visitimr cards, enter the social swim, and soon secure enough indorsements to got into office. It often happens that, by means of acquaintances thus loosely formed, the wives of prominent men gel themselves talked about; for they sometimes meet people and talk with them on the streets when they should not know such persons at all. All of the olliceseekers, however, do not come from the states and territories. The District of Columbia has more than her quota in government offices. Nearly nil of the oflice holders who are appointed from this city lire women, and they number not loss than ;i,<>00. Very many of these ladies are anxious to have their sons or daughters also employed by the government. With this end in view they besiege congressmen and senators until they succeed. Many of tho residents of Washington have enough to live on and want a government job to enable them to live more comfortably. Congressman Mill ikon, of Maine; Jlailey, of Texas; Traccy, of New York, and I-Iarter, of Ohio, lire the favorite targets for applications on account of their readiness to listen to Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE ALT. TnilKK CALLKD ON JIK- tVANAMAKKR. chance to see the postmaster general, and then all talk at onco. Koss, the colored messenger who stands at tho door, is authority for tho statement that the candidates would appear one jy one, each evidently not wanting either of the others to get a word with VIr. Wanaraaker alone. • When all ;hree arrived they would descend on ;he postmaster general in a bunch. 7inally tho fat one gave out and went .lome. Then the remaining two worked things for awhile, but tho tands of the elder were running low, and the young ono alone remained. A 'ew weeks later she went home disap- lointed to all appearances, for a young nan was finally appointed, whereupon the last one to leave promptly married tho young man, and they all three sent sards to Mr. \Vanamaker. These Indies were wise enough to cave the national capital before their money gave out. Jf they had been men, at least one of them would have remained until his last penny was pent. The ehiefi'of police'here says that he has many applications for ransportation homo from mon who claim to have been promised positions under this administration, but who come here only to find that they must go home at their own expense. The wives of the members of congress have the hardest kind of times with offlce- icckers, and now and then are brought nto exceedingly mortifying positions •hroinrh the machinations of female Mr. SIcAdoo demanding- places in tne navy department. He has been oblige' of course, to (jive them negative a swers, and many of tliem have gone hence bitterly denouncing him. As matter of fact, Mr. McAdoo has no power to make appointments .to office in the navy department, as that authority is vested solely in tho secretary of the. navy. The man who gets a federal oftee is a proud fellow. He never Raves any money: but he holds hits head hig-li and thinks himself a little above ordinary mortals. The roan who comes here "scukinfr an office usually becomes, of ail men. tlie most miserable. The wise man will go about lii; business, letting well enough alone The fanatics and fools of our uommun itics will still go on seeking of.iee and will (five no heed to these word of wisdom. SMITH 1). Ki'.Y. OFKICK8EEKEB AND KKSATOK. the various tales of woe. On an average these gentlemen have from six to ten callers a day, who ai'o anxious to draw salary from the government. Tho local offieeseekers care nothing for geography, and do not bother themselves as to whether or not they are constituents of the congressmen or senators to whom they apply- The unfortunate men who have come hero and spent their substance and who do not want to po home again do not frequent our churches, Sunday schools, prayer meetings nor our Younsr Men's Christian association rooms. They hang around the hotel lobbies and barrooms, tryiiig to make themselves agreeable to statesmen and politicians, until their clothes become shiny, their trousers and coats become fringed, and their shoes are run down at the heel. During the win,ter months, the night sessions of the lioiisc are picnics for these shabby- genteel ' fellows, for the galleries are open -to all, and the warmth of, the place is proverbial for the tired and sleepy classes of homeless wanderers in the political labyrinth. Some of these of men have wives and children at homo. They were prosperous, once; but now, while the husband and father wanders about the national capital, hungry and ill-clad, his condition is reflected in the shabby appearance of the deserted wife and children. The former cannot go to church and the latter cannot go to school, because of the lack of shoes or clothlnpr or both. While the unfortunate office-seeker learns the meaning of the pangs of hunger, his family in a once happy homo might starve but for the little acts of kindness which are done so tenderly by neighbors, who want to be helpful without humiliating the mother and children with the feeling that they are objects of charity. With this picture before you, do not let any man you love or respect come to Washington in quest of an oflice. If your senator or representative cannot secure and send a commission of appointment, it woulcTbe folly to come to the national capital. Secretary Grosham has had a hard time of it with the oflieeseekers. Very many of them como from Indiana, and not a few of thorn are republicans who think they should have office as a reward for services rendered when Gen. Gresham was a leader in that party. While thousands, of old soldiers have written to him for offices, not less than five hundred of his army comrades have called at the department of state to urge their claims in person. A score or more of them are wandering our streets to-day, without visible means of support, and with no money for the purpose of paying their transportation home. Tho assistant secretary of the navy, Mr. McAdoo, used to be n A DEMOCRATIC INDUSTRY. How tins Fro* Trader* I.eelslut« Again*! During the month of January sugar trust stock varied from seventy-five to eighty-four, closing at seventy-six. During—February, thanks to the yeoman efforts of the democratic statsemen in behalf of protection for sugar, the price of the trust's stock crept up from seventy-six to eighty-five. But within the past few days sugar has taken one of the most phenomenal leaps within the history eveij of that eccentric stock. In other words, sugar trfist stock, under the balmy influence of democratic tariff reform assurances in congress, has risen in five weeks upwards of twenty points, or about twenty-five per cent. What other industry in the United States has been "boomed" twenty-five per cent by democratic legislative assurances? What farmer has seen the value of his farm or of his products raise twenty-five per cent or even one per cent by the past five weeks, or iifty-cwo weeks, of democratic legislation? What workingmau has experienced a twenty-five per cent raise in liis wages or a twenty-five per cent, pain in chances for employment, or a twenty-five per cent improvement in his hours as a result of the past five or fifty-two weeks of democratic tariff tinkering- and tariff pledges? This is the trust which lastyear real- lied a profit of $30,000,000 on a capital of $73,000,000, during a period when all legitimate industries suffered heavily. This is tho "infant industry" of the democratic administration. An increase of protection from >£ a cent to IJs on the sugar trust is to be the "culminating atrocity" of this hybrid-protection, minus-revenue, democratic "tariff reform." It appears from the way sugar trust stock is booming und cavorting and skyscraping, leaping a dozen points in forty-eight hours, that democratic congressmen can work the stock market, even if they cannot legislate. Every week for a month tho democratic statesmen on the senate tariff committee have announced that on the "following Monday" they would be ready to report the revised Wilson tariff bill. And when Monday comes they as regularly report that they will be ready next Monday. Meantime they keep tho stock market wires humming, and away jumps sugar tip and down and up and down again, but always gaining-in the ultimate, until a mouth of tliis democratic "tariff reform campaign of education" gives tho swjrav combine stockholders a rise of twenty points on $',r>,~ 000,000 of stock, or a net profit of $lo,000,000 in thirty days. This may appear u strange way to raise the wages of labor, lift the farm mortgages, and remove the "robber taxes" from the necessaries of life., all of which the democratic party was going- to do for us with its magic reform policy; but then the ways of democracy arc peculiar.—Minneapolis Trib une, Dissension In tho Democracy. Tho democrats, while striving to carry out their party policy as eacii faction understands it, are fighting even more fiercely between themselves ^ as to the exact scope of that policy than j < • they are to force it past the republic- j JJ an opposition. The radicals, while defeated on tho silver question and held in check in their opposition to the administration by fear of the responsibility of an open rupture in the party, aro the controlling element in tho tariff fight. It ia expected that this will bo demonstrated even more clearly in the senate than it was in tho house, and member of *he house of reprose tivcs, from New Jersey. It is only six or seven hours' ride by rail from his old congressional district to the national capital, and his former constituents have swooned down upon •r.ta- i that in conference tho extremists will ' again control. While striving to place themselves in a position to bo able to go before the country at the next congressional election with some hope of success the two factions of the party are at the same liine contriving to defeat the purposes of each other. Tho object of the extremists, who, for tho- must part, represent that element In. the party which is least satisfied with,. Mr. Cleveland, is to secure the adoption of a revenue law which will bring to tbe support of the party tho urea*, mass of discontented people of the lower middle class, and will attract so much attention as to obscure everything in Mr. Cleveland's administration and of the general conduct of a- majority in congress, which they fear may not receive public approval. Especially do they want u. obscure the division en the inoncy ("ir.L'htion and the extraordinary fori-ijjn policy of Mr. Cleveland.—Washington Letter, in Chicago Tribune. C£r\Vhen the biographer of Grover Cleveland comes to .sum up UK; character of that eminent statesman he can get his data from a very few leading cases. For Mr. Cleveland's devotion to civil service reform sec the Van Alen, Horn blower and Poukhaio incidents. For devotion to the constitution study the appointment o£ lilouot and the issuing of Carlisle's bofrus bonds. For mental caliber consider the snub administered to the Uawaiia* charge, d'affaires. For general integrity investigate the connection with Benedict of Wall Street and the resultant profit.
