said to the Irish: "Who, if not Irish
American, voied in tho sad story of
the commercial ruin of tho island tl un

Well, now, let us poo what woro the
viows of Daniel O'Connell upon this
question. Was he not an Irishman
and a friend of Ireland? Did ho not
have tho interests of tho "Green Islo"
at heart? lie advocated tho repeal of
tho corn laws which woro a part of a
nipst obnoxious system of protection.
O'Connell said: "I'roteetion nivalin
an additional bIxikuico for each loaf;
that is tho Irish of it. If it woro not
for tho protection tho loaf would sell
for a bhilling, hut tis it is protected it

A DISGRACEFUL AFFjVIU.
Spending of the late M K. Confcr-
' dice Iicld in IJoifc city, the Statesman
says: "It is fortiilialc for some that
(his is the nineteenth and not the
thirteenth century, that the land wo
inhabit is America, not Spain, that,
the rack nnd fagot have been abol -
ished. For nine days Uoise Citv has
reveled in the scandal, rot and filthy
j dctiiila of church trials, l'mity has
been ?taincd, the young defiled, los

Inilli murdered. Nine
drys of scandal, nine days of wrang
ling, nine days of backbiting, brow
bcainig, (iiiarrcling, and this, too-,
ninong thoye wlioso vows and public
teachings arc all contrary to such a
course. There is no hate so bitter as
that between those who have vowed
not to hate, no tongues so acrid as
those who have before God's altar
been consecrated (o proclaim only the
tidings of great jov." Days have
been wasted iirworking to smirch 9,
character of paciicliers, iuMond of im
proving the precious moments in con
sultation concerning the advancement
of tho cause of the Aunoiiitnd ftie of
Israel, dcalousy. cgoiim, arro
gance, spile, devilislincss, broken
loose, have driven tlio worldlings to
the conclusion that the IJev. IJenja
miu Anderson's philosophic observa
tion (hat "We all have our litle
tngilifes" is true in church as well
as civil affaiis.
Perhaps it is a comfort to preachers
cK tho gospel to go back to
their homes conscious that mud has
been slung by $io ion at brethren,
that a church has been wrecked, that
fljoble omen have been held up to
th world as unchaste nnd liars, that
frifely lovcand truth and devotion
1jvS received tho judgment of con
demnation, that upon the venerable
IffiSd of a father in Israel has been
heaped a load of unholy wrath, and
return which his long years of un-
tjjlfish toil and fcrvcufe zeal has re
cei'SSd at their hands consists in their
demand that his ltishop reprimand
hit, hut Sm doubt it. Tho world
siraS. always at the cloth, nnd yet the
yorld pays reverence to faithful lives.
Thtf verdict of tho world is that if the
charily displayed at their recent trials
is a fair sample of that exercised the
other days in tho year,
own charitvis better."
WA7ArG MISTA KKS.
A mistake often committed in the
formation of mining companies is tho
oOor-capitalizntion of (heir properties,
a practieo greatly to no deprecated as
Ijjiing neither honest nor expedient.
Such nidation of values is lacking in
honesty localise it tends (o mislead
tlQ) more inexperienced and ignorant
iSnCion of tho investing public, and
impolitic because tho bettor informed
of this class will not be likely to buy
liP sliQres of a company whoso prop
erty has boon so over-capitalized (hat
their is li'lle likelihood of (heir over
l)ing ahlo to pay any considerable
dividend on their stock. A mining
coffirjQiiy starting out with a nominal
c$pi&l so out of all proportion to the
Caluo of thoir property iapt to create
(he impression (hat it has been gotten
up for tho purpose of soiling shares
rather than mn&iiig a largo and profit
able production of buFHon. Such
cours is calculated to excite distrust
iGlldr thau0!roato confidence in tho
scheme, and where pursued may oven
bringi faiy good property iKfio dis
credit. A crying evil in connection with
milling transactions is tho exorbitant
commission that promoters anil mid
dlemen havo seen fit lo exact for (heir
services, and which generally ranged
fSOni 10 (o (10 pur cent, of I ho price
niino-owners have realized for their
properties j)t his tax coining oflouer,
however, out of (ho purchaser than
tho vendor. Hero, again (ho reason
for submitting to these extravagant
charges in mining moro than other
affairs is not clearly apparent.

Tho Chinese on thi coast are in an

SOME REASOXS WHY
"Why arc wages so much higher
in protected America than in free
trade England?" ask the men who
attrihntc even blessing of this favored
J land to high taxes
These arc some of the reasons why,
1 given by the 2vcw York World:
iJccauso the United btatcs have an
area of .'3.000,000 square miles of ter
ritory, while Great Britain has 121,
Isecamo the Lnitcd .States have n
population of only It to ' the square
mile, while Great Britain has 'JSC pco
plo crowded upon the same space.
Because the United States contain
over 1,000,000 farms that produced in
18S7, a value of over $-','21:5,000,000,
while Great Britain is subject to the
curse of entailed estates and vast tin
Because the United States have
ir0,000 miles of railway, while Great
Britain has but 10,000.
Because the United Mates arc richer
in mines, quarries, forests and other
natural productions, and afford a
greater diversity of climate, soil and
employment to their inhabitants than
any other country in the world.
BecauQr, in adition to this greater
Held and demand &reIabor, the intel
ligence, energy and productive skill
of our working people surpass those
of any other nation.
These arc some of the reasons why
wages are higl cr here than in Eng
land, have alwavs. been so under low?
tariffs and high tariffs alike, and
would be so if there were no tariff.
AKD THE IRISH.
Tho following taken from tlje Sun
day Union and Catholic Times, a wide
awake journal , enjoying an extensive
circulation among our Irish-Ainori-
cifti citizen's, moro clearly presents the
attitude of President Cleveland to
ward Irishmen than anything we have
"In private life G rover Cleveland
enjoyed very pleasing relations with
Irish-Aniericnns, soigc of whom were
within his'circle of intimate friends
and social companions. Irishmen
who havo conio into close personal
contact with him in public life like the
man. There is that about him,
whether personal good fellowship,
bonhomie or what notp that feels gen
ial, perhaps wo may say congenial,
to an Irishman. In tho stress and
passion of close lighting personal
warmth toward a chief is a good thing
among Irish soldiers. We wish to
see it impelled mpro generally than it
now is among our compatriots toward
G rover Cleveland. We are glad to bo
able to point to such an event as the
issuance of the retaliation proclama
tion in corroboration of the claim wo
make for our parly's leader. Wc do
claim that G rover Cleveland is a
plucky fellow, a bluff, big-hearted
man, and an out-and-out American p
unfitted by instinct and by every ole-'
....... .rl i - l. i 1 r
mem oi ins nature in uc. an jvuiuiim
niac or a toady to any power, or to
anything on this earth. Wo claim
that an Irish Nationalist can fairly
support this AmericSh statesman
without violence to his race feelings oj
Nationalist principles. Wo claim
that Grover Cleveland has done
friendly acts of potent infiiionce to
advance tho Irish causo. And beforo
long wo may feel it wiso and right to
prothis to tho satisfaction of all.
The Knglish aro cursing Grovor
Cleveland to-day. The Irish are
blowing him. He is a great Ameri
can, a great Democrat?!!, great Presi
dent. Long lifo to him!
'IILDEX OX 77;
' These tariff taxes carry with them
other incidents, which greatly in
crease their burden. They fall most
heavily upon men of sm$ll incomes,
tho proceeds of whoso labor and in
dustry aro consumed to support them
selves and their families. Every man
w?S has obtained a situation of coin
fort and prosperity can in somo way
stand them. Hut take the poor man
take tho man not poor, whoso an- 1

al support and ho pays u most is-
proportionate amount from his earn

The Clarksvillc, Ga., Advertiser
hits the nail squarely on the head in
an editorial on the above subject.
That a preacher may possibly dabble
in politics ami maintain his Christian
purity and inlluciicc for good wc will
not dcny,but it would be almost
miracle if lie did. Therefore, wc
heartily agree with the Advertiser,
and so will every right thinking man
wc believe, when it says:
"Mr. Thaddeus Pickett, the inde
pendent candidate for congress in this
district, is a regularly ordained min
ister of the gospel and no doubt, a very
clever gentleman. While wc recog
nize and contend for the inherent
right of every man, as a general thing,
to run for any ollice he may desire,
wc think preachers arc an exception
to the rule, and wc do not believe
that any man who is actively engaged
in the work of the Christian ministry
has any right to enter into politics
and resort to tho very questionable
methods which are necessary to nnd
inseparable fiom success in (hat field.
If a man is called to preach (he gospel
to a dying world and ondoaOr to lead
men to "the Lamb of God which talc
eth away the sin of the world," he
certainly is, or should bo. entirely
consecrated anil whollv and uncondi
tionally set apart to that great and
glorious work, and is not called to
lead (he people in the crooked and
never overly pure labyrinths of poli
tics, foonie might claim, however,
that wo should elect preachers to
ol$ce for the purpose of purifying and
elevating (he political standard of
morality. That idea won't do. You
had just as well claim that Mr. Pick
ett should accept the position of clown
in some circus for the purpose of rais
ing the st.'Qidard of arcnic morals,
ft would be just as effectual. No.
Whenever a minister deserts his ex
alted post as "herald of the Cross,"
and descends into (so poljjkal arena,
instead of elevating politics to his high
standard he iuvariablv lowers himself
to the depths of political trickery and
corruption. It is utterly impossible
for a minister to go actively into poli
tics without des&'oying his influence
for good and forever obliterating his
possibilities for usefulness in the

Th FiFst Sign
Of failing health, whether in tho form of
Kight SweaQnd Nervousness, or in a
sense, of Oonoral Wearine and. Los3 of
Apatite, should suggest tho uso of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is most effectivo for giving pno ami
strength to thiPenfcoblcd system, pro
moting tho digoatlon and assimilation of
food,.ro9toriug tho norvous forces to
thoir normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, and vitalizing tho blood.
Ten years ago my health began to fall.
I was troubled with a distressing Cough,
NightiSwcMs, "Weakness, nnd Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pro
scribed by different physicians, but
became so weak that I could not go up
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friondu recommended uio to try Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, which I did, and 1 am now
as healthy nnd stroug ns over. Mrs.
15. L. Williams, Alexandria, Miun.
I havo used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, nnd know, if It is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I havo
also prescribed It ns a tonic, ns well ns nn
nltonitive, and must say that I honestly
beliovo It to bo tho best blood medicinq-)

It would bo impossible for mo to do
Bcribo what Icsimered from Indigestion
nnd Ilendacho up to tho titno I began
taking Ayer's Snrsnpnrllln. I was under
tho enro of various physicians, and triod
n great many kinds of medicines, but
novor obtained moro than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for a short time, my hendncho disap
peared, and my stomneh performed Its
duties moro perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
Karluy, Springliold, Mass.
I havo been groatly benefited by tho
prompt use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
tones nnd invigorates tho system, regu
lates tho action of tho digestive nnd
iisHlmllatlvo organs, nnd vitalizes tho
Hood. It is, without doubt, tho most
reliable blood purlflor yet discovered.
