How the Poor Man Pays a Heavy
Taxt3 the Government.
It is a law of principle in all de
partments of commerce and trade,
that the cost of production gov
erns the price of the artisles pro
duced, unless it is in some cases
where capital has been transferred
from one branch of industry to
another under the protection of
Government, as for illustration un
der the operation' of the present,
odious tariff S3-stem, which trans
fers capital from the agricutural to
manufacture interests, which latter
the Government protects by im
posing a heavy duty upon foreign
manufactured v goods, at the ex
pense of agrieiilturc. YVhatever is
the rate imposed it is added to
the home manufactured article,
and its price is by so much in
creased. But capital having been
largely withdrawn from agri
culture and receiving no protec
tion from the Government, nor
foreign demand for its products,
because a high tariff has driven
commerce from our shores, and
prohibits exchange of products be
tween tills and other. countries, the
cost of production to the farmers
is not realized in the price they
received for their wheat, barley
and other articles. This excep
tion to the rule, however, that the
price of the article is governed by
the cost of production, is the re
sult, solely of the unjust and inqui
tious workings of a tariff system,
that robs the many of the pro
ceeds of their toil and transfers
them to to the pockets of the rich.
The poor man pays the tax the
same as the rich ; and as the num
ber of poor men are largely in the
ascendency, averaging nine to one
in the population of the country,
they of course aud of necessity
pay more tax than the rich. As
incontestable evidence that the
poor man does pay tax, and a
larger tax than the rich man, we
call attention to the articles of daily
consumption. o matter, now,
what may have been the original
cost of the article, the manufac
turer or producer has his profit
which is added to the original cost ;
the profits of the commission mer
chant, the wholesale dealer, and
all the cost for transportation, are
idded to the price of the cjoods.
X'ow the poor man the laborer
and the mechanic purchases oi
the retailer, and pays ail the tax
and other costs noon the article
from the manufacturer to the re
tail dealer. Thus, the poor man
who is the largest consumer pay:
the larirest share ot taxes. i et
there are many politicians so silly
or dishonest as to contend that the
poor man pays no tax that it is
the rich man on whom the burden
of taxation falls. Out upon sucl
stupid nonsense, or low, knavish
deception and cunning hypocrisy
iut iei us enquire lurtner : 1 lie
poor man pays the same on all his
groceries as the ncn man ; he pay
the same on the clothing for his
family as the rich man; he pays
the same tariff 011 iron, steel, tools,
farming implements, and other av
tides with which he works. There
is no article of daily consumption
upon which there is a tax, that the
poor man does not pay as much a
the rich. But more, and what is
more shameful, outrageous, and un
just, the poor man is taxed upon
his axe, his grubbing hoc his kit o
tools or his plow, and the proceeds
of his labor earned with these very
instruments are niched from him
in the form of other taxes, to pav
the interest to bond-holders who
have invested their thousands in
Government bonds, and who cut
off their c 11 pons upon which they
ire not taxed ' a cent. It is the
poor man, then, who pays the
argest amount of taxes, and
sweats and toils from sun to sun,
only to be robbed of a lare pro
portion of his earnings, pays in ad
dition to his taxes, the bloated de
bauched idlers and leeches, the in
terest in gold on their bonds.
Poor men should study the facts,
and remember the party which has
so oppressed and burdened them to
maintain villainous monopolies and
There is still another way in
which poor men pay tax. We
will suppose a capitalist to have
invested his money in dwelling
houses upon which he pays State,
county, municipal and income
tax. He rents these tenements to
poor men who are unable to buy a
home of their own, and all these
taxes are added to the price of the
rent, which comes out of the poor
man's pocket. And further in ad
dition to the high rent with taxes
added, the owner must have his
interest on the original investment,
which in the present state of Gov-
eminent, under the control of
scoundrels, outlaws, thieves, nig
gers and conspirators, is at least
ten per cent, and which the poor
renter has to pay.
Under the Mongrel Government
the poor man is completely owned
by the capitalist. He is as much
a slave as ever was the nigger on
a southern plantation, and the very
men the puritanical winners,
psalm-singers, bible-bangers, hyp
ocrites and nigger-worshippers of
the God ami-morality party, whose
sympathy for the nigger slave
found vent in putting bayonets to
the hearts of white freemen, are
the ones who raised the hue and
cry that the slave was robbed of
his earnings by his master, which
were his own by right, are now
robbing w.hite men and oppress
ing them a hundred times greater
than was ever the southern slave
under the most cruel master.
Said a dear friend to us the oth
"Better the good-will even of a
dog, than his ill-will."
Excuse us for not accepting ev
ery bone of an idea thrown at us.
Because a man says it is only four
hundred miles from New York to
Chicago, we are not bound to be

is all right, but we have seen more

we ever saw torn by bad dogs.

that paw their dirty feet over your

suiL Have seen ill-willed dogs go
by with their heads and tails down
but never biting at a man who
knows where to place them.
And what matters it whether a
dog cares for you at nil? We can
live without dogs be they two or
four footed ones. Dogs eat up all
our earnings, bring us fleas, hair,
.and dirt. They are not necessary
to our salvation or success. If you
want their good will, all right.
But we do not care to spend an
hour or a moment of a valuable
life tickling dogs or fitting them to
paw us over and mark our clothes.
The best way is to do as you please

Some people like dogs. Some
women think more of a dog than
of a baby. Some women pet, fon
dle, caress dogs till their clothes
be full of lleas, or till their mouth
be all dog-spittle and say it is so
sweet. But every one to their
taste. If women like or love dogs
it is none of our busines, no more
than it is of theirs what we think
of such people. When you see a
man playing with doll-babies, and
women in love with dogs, you "will
see "spoons." Yon will see per

The Mormon Currency.
The September number of the
Overland contains the following:
The Mormons reached Salt Lake
Yalley in an utterly impoverished
condition. The cash capital of the
entire community would not proba
bly have exceeded 81,000. The
California migration furnished
them a market for their surplus
products; but, as they had but
small use for money, they preferred
taking of the miners instead some
thing which they could either eat,
drink, or wear, and not procurable
at home. As they increased in
numbers and means merchants es
tablished themselves among them,
thus enabling them to use their
small stores of money in the pur
chase of needed supplies." Their,

Avhich would bear transportation,
have, however, at all times made
money extremely scarce, and have
led to the perpetration of a com
plicated and often amusing system
of barter. Hundreds of farmers,
living in comfortable circumstances
and having large families to clothe
and educate, will not see a dollar
in money for years. Such a far
mer wishes to purchase a pair of
shoes for his wife. He consults
the shoemaker, who avers his wil

in sorghum molasses. Two loads

The Cheap Chinese.
The American mechanic and
skilled laborer is not afraid of com
petition. He welcomes to this
country 'the -oppressed people of
Europe, and is perfectly able to
take care of himself.
But he does not wih to be un-
lerbid, and the work taken out of
lis hands, and the-bread from his
mouth, by cheap importations of
inferior and ignorant men from
Asia. The wholesale engagement
of Chinese who receive utterly in
significant wages in their own
country, are ready to be swindled

of American free labor. We are
willing to have the individual
Chinaman come and make all the
money be can, but it will not do
to have Chinese colonies drive
American mechanics out of their
workshops aird factories.
The solution of the problem is
difficult, but whatever is decided,
one thing is certain, the American
eople trill not consent to have
imerlcan labor pauperized. Cheap
labor is good for the capitalist, but
pauper rates of payment will not
be permitted by the intelligent
workingman. PL Vadelph ia Dost.

the sweetest companionship by
seeking other friends, and bestow

stead of cementing the sisterly af
fection by all those most potent
Thus is much trouble and anx
iety caused. Friends prove false
and betray confidences, while a
good sistei is true and silent as the
grave over all things which could
injure a beloved sister or brother.
As a rule strangers never pos
sess the uninterrupted interest for
you that your own family feel.
X"o one else will always defend
you, always protect, and hide your
faults from censure. No one else
will always rejoice at your success
and mourn over your failure, as
will your parents, brothers and sis
ters. What a pity then that families
do become so alienated from each
other, their interests separated and
paths divided. It is such a bless
ing for a young mar. if he has a
kind sister who can influence him
to stay at home, finding pleasures
in the unbroken fireside circle
which is filled with precious jewels
of confidence, love, and harmony.
Boys have gone to ruin who might
have been saved through the in

It he stays long enough inu
rope he may be able too welcome
one more celebrity to the ranks.of
"monarchs retired from business,"
in the person either of Count Bis
marck or the Emperor. Napoleon.
We do not know that it is ne
cessary for the Hon. Jefferson Da
vis to go -abroad to extend the
hand of welcome to retiring mon
archs, for the months are not so
many now before an eminent busi
ness man named Grant, with whom
the Standard appears to be on fa
miliar terms, will have leave given
him by the American people to re
tire from business. To be sure, his
business' differs a little from that
in which Jefferson Davis was en
gaged, or 'that to which Bismarck
and Napoleon are nowr giving their
attentions, the great object of all
except Grant, being the conquest
of nations or sovereignties: while
Grant is content simply with sove
reigns, or such articles of value as
may bring them. The only differ
ence, therefore, between Bismarck,
Napoleon, and Grant being the
style of "sovereigns each would
bring to his feet.

The St. Louis Depmbllcan hurls
back the insinuation that the pas
sive resistence idea is intended as
a scheme. It says:
The Democracy, as we believe,
intended no trick in abstaining
from the nomination of the State
ticket. They- simply mean to pro
test against the cowardly despot
ism which. decides be f o reh and that
no such ticket shall be elected.
There never was a time when the
Democracy felt more confident of
carrying a fair and square election
in Missouri, than now. They
could beat their opponents, with
12,000 white men disfranchised un
der the constitution ; they could
beat them with 15,000 new col
ored votes added to their oppo
nent's strength ; they couldo beat
either B. Gatz Brown, or Gov.
McClurg on an aggregate vole, by
a decisive majority, and carry0
three-fifths of the counties in de
tail. But no such fair election was
held in I860, nor in 1868, and none
will be allowed in 1870; and
the Democracy have no desire to
put on harness for a light which
thirty-three registry superintend
ents have decided against them.
