Be or fit of a Rut u red Tariff.
The folloninK intrenius argument is ad-
Tam-el by an eastern democrat to support
l.is contention that the tariff should be :
lowered. It is almost brutal in its frank-
uess. It strips away any glamour of slick
theory and lets strong light upon a point
that the democrats generally have been try
ing to keep concealed :
Why not heed the rclce id circumstances and
the voice ol Datura? Keduce the tariff, admit
f .reliia food, and what will be the result?

How does this sound in the ears of the wily
democrats who have been fondly coddling j
the farmer,? To be sure this was not de-
signed for circulation among the farmers of j
the West, but on that account it has all the
more value as showing the true object of .
the democratic scheme.
The farmers are already laboring under a
disadvantage which many are pleased to j
call -over production- It is not really
over production but rather under consuni)-1
tion that is the trouble. The republican
policy is to stimulate consumption of farm w" " ' BJ l"r"
products by building up vast manufacturing 1 Wallowa county. Mr. Miller went at

mumbling " whereare we at?
The first scheme was to withdraw two !
people's party electors and two democrats,
thus making a fusion on equal terms. Hut
that was found impracticable and the dem
ocratic chairman was instructed to get all
the democrats off the ticket so as to give the
state to Weaver, it being conceded that it i
waisurely republican in a fair fight. This
the democratic nominees, with the exception
of Miller, declined to do. It is a pretty
mess they have made of it and the republi
cans are not likely to sutler from it.

I.ynian lleecher once litteretl In a
prayer these words; " Oh Lord, grant thai
we may not hate the slaveholder; and grant
l-onl, that he may not act so that we cannot
help huting him." In like manner we may
prav that we may not apply derisive epi
thets to the populist, and that he may not
act so that we cannot help applying lo him
the epithets he richly deserves.
Put seriously, we have anarchists and
anarchists, and it is idle to blink the fact.
Before me is a copy of " The American Non
conformist" of August Z an organ of the
people's party published in Indianapolis. It
is the paper from which I minted the epi
thets in the oning paragraph alaive. On
the first page is a large cartoon in which a
" plutocrat," so labeled, in represented
with a torch in his right hand setting lire to
his own proierty. In his left hand he
w ields a large sledge hammer with which he
seems to have been smashing things gene
rally. The cartoon is entitled "A THIN
GAXIE," and beneath it are the words: " 1
destroy my own prorty the state foots
the hill. My hireling press lays it to the
strikers and f) million driveling fools be
lieve it !"
The design is to show thai the owners of
the railroad, embodied as a plutocrat, set
lire to the cars at the time of the lliilf'uln
strike in August, hired the public press
lo attribute it to the strikers, ami then calls
the people fools for believing it. Not much
anarchy in thai? Well, no-hut it is a
huge lie more expressive than if told in
words, and I would count the man who de
signed and engraved the coarse wood cut,
the firm that published it, and the pimple's
party bummer who fastened it lo my gate
where 1 should find it, as capahlo of com-j.Hy,
mining any fiendish act known In thecals
logue of crimes. Why not? Shall we con
aider men better than the principles they
teach? The Nonconformist teaches the
righteousness of doing nearly everything
heretofore called criminal, and men who
imbibe such teachings, and peddle them
through the country for the conversion of
others to a like faith, would not hesitate to
take the torch and dagger in their own
hands were they not too cowardly to run j
the risk. The law stands In their way, and
hence they teach the abrogation of all law
designed for the punishment of those who
would commit murder and arson. They
boast, as did a poor weakling nt a populist
rub-a-dub held in this neighborhood some
two months since, that the bloody enact-j
menu at Homestead were "only a begin-1

boasters refrain from putting their teachings
into practice only because the law luys on
them its restraining bund.
As I open the Nonconformist to get an
idea of its "inside matte'" the first thing
to attract attention is a large and pretty
good engraved likeness labeled " (Jen, J. 11.

A Young Men'. Party.
As Whitchiw Kcid said In tils address
to the league, the Republican party has
always been a young men's party. It
wus organized by young men, the Union
was preserved by young mini and the
party's greatest heriM-s have been young
men. Ah those young men who began
with the party are growing old the young
men are taking their places, and they are
showing themselves capable us leaders
as well us followers. The league has
the correct principle governing its work.
