The morning Republican organ
is growling because at the citizen's
meeting the other night the people
received the nauio of Harrison
coldly while they cheered to the
echo that of Cleveland. How does

During the discussion on the mo

It has long been the custom of
members of congress to have priut
ed In the Ctmgrtiuitmal Ilewrd any
matter that suited their fancy, as a
part or all of their speeches on the
tloor. During the campaign of
1SS4, Mr. Brewer, of New Jersey,
priuted as his speech on the tariff
question, a chapter from Blaine's
"Twenty Years in Congress."
Time and agaiu members have done
likewise, and no objection was
ever made. No objection can 1
made, under the rules and usngt
of the house: and it is right that
the members make use of the V.Ve-
ord iu this way, as it saves time
and disseminates information. But
the objection of two or three Re
publicans, whoso party has from
time Immemorial done toe same
thing, to the printing in the AVwnl
of Henry George's able book,
"Protection or Free Trade?" by
several Democrats and Alliance
men as their speeches during the
recent tariff debate, comes with
poor grace. Their objections were
not sustained, however, were not
even brought to a vote, as it be
came painfully apparent to them
that if these extracts were stricken
from the l!mrd, a vast amount of
matter inserted by the Republicans
would also have to be stricken out.
And so the book was printed en
tire, and is now lieing sent broad
cast over the country. The edition
will reach at least 2,000,000 copies,
and every voter receiving it will
become an alwolute free trader.
We say this advisedly: every man,
no matter what his politics, who
will read "Protection or Free
Trade?" thoroughly, will become an
ardent advocate of trade absolutely
free. It is the only book that com
mences at the ls-glnnlng of the
subject, discusses both Hides of if,
and then carries the argument to
its logical and irresistible conclu
sion. The Wkht Sidk will bo

They have decided that Bcttie
Lewis, the married daughter of
W. L. Thomas, deceased, a white
man who wits the common-law
husband of a colored woman, is his
legal heir. Thomas died intestate
three years ago, leaving a fortune
of $250,000. Cousins claim the
property as heirs-at-law, taking
the ground that Bettio Lewis was
illegitimate, though it was acknowl
edged that her mother was recog
nized us the wife of Thomas and
was called by his name. Here is
an act of justice to a person of
color in a Southern state. Cer
