PROTECTION IN ENGLAND.
There can be no question on this side
of the ocean as to the Impression that
Jlr. Joseph Chamberlain's "campaign
of education" against the British free
trade policy baa already made on the
masses over there. They are beginning
to think, to reason and that is half the
battle when the traditional conservat
ism, the prejudices and the stubborn
ness of the average Britton are consid
ered. That is all that the former secre
taries for the colonies bad hoped for, an
earlier result than he expected. It Is
significant of the steady progress of
his political crusade that on Tuesday of
last week, at Liverpool, over Ave thous
and workingmen applauded him to the
echo and passed stirring resolutions In
indorsement of his protective proposals,
although the British Tradesmen's Con
gress at a recent session had vigorously
condemned the entire Chamberlain pro
gramme. Hundreds of earnest men had
stood in line outside of the hall for five
heirs in a drenching rain storm In or
der to be sure of places inside, and nun
. flreds more stood outside during the en
tire meeting hoping to gain admittance
some time before its close, is the way
the New Tork Commercial sums up the
I appeal against the unions and tor
the officials to the men who appointed
them and thus gave them votes In the
congress. It 1s absolutely Impossible
to reconcile free trade and trade union
ism. You can have one or the other,
but you can not have both. That con
gress made cheapness its god. But to
buy in the cheapest market is not to the
best interests of the workingmen. The
producer is of greater importance than
the consumer , Of what use is it to pro
hibit 'sweating" in Great Britain if
sweatsd goods from foreign countries
are admitted? If the cheapest goods are
bought that is, those produced where
labor Is cheaper than it is in Great
Britain why not import cheap labor
Tbe Commercial then concludes that
this doctrine of fostering and protect
ing the home market, of keeping the
home population always at work on
good wages, of ignoring the cheapness
of foreign goods if only we can keep
our, own factories running and the op'?r
atives' dinner-pails full Is not a new
one here in the states. It has been rank
Industrial and political heresy to
preach it in the United Kingdom. But

The summary of the election results
of yesterday are not at all surprising,
though straw votes and predictions of
a week ago were shattered in some
cases. For Instance, the Herald pre.
dieted the re-election of Low, when in
fact he was beaten by McClellan by a
plurality of 01,414 votes. Instead of
Franklin K. Lane leading in the grand
finale, Schmitz was re-elected mayor
