If Hie campaign of 1S9G is not to be an
apathetic one, the republicans must
arouse themselves to the contest and
posh with all riiror to the front of the
protective policy to American iuduslries,
and American wcrkingmen. A division
of opinion may exist upon the currency
question, but it was never indispcufcible
that republicans should think exactly
a!it-i upon questions of minor consUer
a! ton. I lie only thing necessary lu a
lart's existence Is that when once,
started upon the general linu of belief or
policy, the members thereof shall refer
minor dillerecccs to majority decisions
and aci uith determined and concerted
earnestness in bthall ol the nominess

principals of tho party. The republican

repnbiican party ttands first iu regard
nith the people, united it has strength
to withstand the attacks of democracy
Let this strength be acted upon with or
dinary jcod tense, and the republican
party in the next campaign will sweep
everything before it, and gain a victory
most beneficial in its resnttd to the peo

The envious rant of the lloaitiuf
Windbag whom the Kiddle Enterprise
recently referred to as "a wart on the
tail end of nothing," in Thursday's issue
while raging with jealousy at the moder
ate prosperity of this paper, vomited out
a fool mess of villain or traductions,
and closes with the statement tliat "the
Ilcview gives the news, the Plaixdealeb
does not." This envious runt who fills
his paper with boastings of its own
greatness ami increasing prosperity,
may think that such stuff is news, and
perhaps it would be if it were true.
But there seems to be grave doubts in
the minds of it3 readers that its circula
uon is increasing so last ana that it is
in such a very prosperous condition,
hence the necessity Jo? so much lying
and boasting, ami such agonizing efforts
to make people believe that it is the
only paper that gives the news.

One ci the arguments for a ship canal
from the Mississippi to the lakes is that
it would enable the United States to

But it is not likely that tho lakes will be

Approaching a Crisis.
London, Novvomber 9. Tho political
outlook in tho east became mora critical
and complicated during tho latter part of
tho week. Tho sultan seems to bo defy
ing tho powers in bestowing decorations
for "good sorvicos" upon the Turkish of
ficials held responsible for the recentout
rages in Armenia. Tho British Mediter
ranean fleet, uear Iho Dardanelles, is be
ing strongly reinforced. Italian warships
are said to bo ready to assist thoso of
Great Britain iu an emergency, and tho
division of tho French fleet, which
cruises in tho Levant in winter, will start
for thoso waters immediately, a month
earlier than usual.
Tho latest alarming reports from the
far east aro that tho rebellion of tho
Dungans, in tho northwest ol utitna, is
assuming alarming proportions, ine
rebels are said to bo armed with rifles of
Russian manufacturo and their leader is
reported to have sout an ultimatum to
tho imperial government at Peking,
threatening to march on that capital if a
favorable answer is not received, Tho
imperial troops aro stated to be pillaging
tows and villages, aru littering the Gelds
with the 'todies of men, women and
chilil ren.
It is not astonishing, under these cir
cumstances, that the London stock mar
ket closed very flat today; that the con
tinental bourses were m a mnicKy con
dition and tliat there was a 'general de
clinu in foreign funds.
Everv indication points to the fact
that the affairs of Turkey are approach
ing a crisis and it is significant tliat only
two solutions 'of the difficulty are dis
cussed by the European press the en
tire dismemberment of Turkey or the
deposition of the sultan. The powers
aro now showing that thev will no
longer be hoodwinked bv the sultan's
promises, which are never intended to
be kept.
The final stage of the diplomatic pres
sure was reached when Germany, Aus
tria and Italy, which had hitherto stood
aloof, joined the other powers iu a men
acing note which lias just K-cn pre
sented to the sultan. The next step
will undoubted!? bo a conference of the
representatives of the great powers.
which will discuss not merely the ad
ministration of Armenia, but the fate of
tho Turkish empire. The powers are
in complete unison, and this fact is ac
knowledged everywhere, except at the

Progress of the War.
Havana. Nov. 9. It is now admitted,
even in official circles, that the insur
gents have recently made such progress
in the different provinces they are operat
ing in and they have received such
quantity of arms, ammunition and dyna
mite, Uiat affairs may be said to bo reach
ing a crisis. There is no doubt that the
headquarters of Captain-General Campos
in th? city of Santa Clara, capital of tho
province of that name, is being slowly
but surely invested by the insurgent
forces. They are advancing from all
sides, but mainly from the province of
Puerto Principe.
.Vs cabled a few days ago, General
3Iaximo Gomez, tho insurgent comman
der in chief, has crossed tho border with
a large body ol men, and is camped near
Sigueana, south of Sanctus Esperitu
which is occupied by a considerable body
of Spanish troops and which is one of tho
points where the Captain-general re
cently established a heliograph station
to try to keep up communication between
tho cities of Santa Clara and Puerto
Principe, but tho route is held by the in
surgents and tho roads traversed by the
captain-general, when he so narrowly
escaped death or capture, a bullet going
through his saddlebag and eight bullets
going through his long military cloak
aro now in possession of the insurgents,
and it will be very difficult, if not irrpoH
Bible, for tho Spanish commander to
maintain communication with Puerto
Principe. In addition, tho Roloff and
Uespcdes expeditions, well armed and
equipped, have joined tho forces, and
aro preparing to enter into active co-op-eperation
with Maximo Gomez in Santa
Then, again, the insurgent commander,
SeriOno Sanchez, is in strong force, en
camped at Abrcus, near Uicnluegos, tho
north town of tho province of Santa
Clara, and one of tho Important cities of
Cuba. Ho is openly recruiting his fob
lowers, and has just burned all the
houses of Laraninto, Estados, Unidos
and Heras, their valuable- farms and th
property of tho Marquis do Aspcstigua
Ro'uff and Ccspedes are making things
very lively for tho captain-general in tho
province of Santa Clara, whero moat of
tho ir- ".rgents' activity is being dis
play' They ore driving the farmers
nwny Irom the towns under penalty of
being idiot, and tho lattor cannot be in
duced to return, even on promise of
lauds uud protection held out to them by
Camp os.
In tho direction of Rumodiosand Sagua
la Grande tho insurgents aro also active,
and it will thus bo Been that they are
making for different points in Santa
Clara, which is garrisoned by some of
tho best troops of Spain, and the most
reliable volunteers.
All insurgent leaders, including Max
imo Gomez, aro sending messengors and
circulars to the big farmers aud planters.
ordering them to contribute to tho treas
ury of tho Cuban republic, undor penalty
of having their properly destroyed by
flro. Tho result is, tho insurgents are
cally better supplied with funds than
tho Spanish government officials
hore. Tho money thus obtained from
tho government's friends, tho planters
and big farmers, is in time forwarded to
New Yoik or other American ports,
where it is used for the purchase of arms
and ammunition, and tho equipping of
additional expeditions. Tho Spanish
government is well aware of this, and
has done all possible to provent the in
surgents from raising funds, as well as
trying to capturo tho messengers which
they sent to tho United Statss and else
where In spite of the Spanish blockade
tho insurgents' expeditions found little
difficulty in landing, and they havo also
succeeded in maintaining an uninterrup
ted lino ol communication with their
friends in the United States.

'Returning Prosperity."
R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of
trade savs:
"Many woolen mills are closing to
wait for orders, though the demand is
fairly satisfactory for some dressing
goods aud wastes, but tho prices of most
qualities of wools are still uncertain, for
the manufacturers do not know yet
what they have to meet.
"Wheat falls lack with great reluct
ance from its summer riso of 20 cents,
but lias declined 1 li cents for a week.
The rapid marketing of supplies of
wheat from Russia and Argentine and
larger exports of corn from this country,
both tend to lessen the future demand
for American wheat."
Failures for the week are 90 in the
United States against 61 last year, and
-19 in Canada against 4 last vear.
