POPULAR OPINION ON SHORT CAM
PAIGNS. The Boston Herald 1 ono of the latest
of the prominent newspapers of the land
to Join the ranks of those who favor a
short presidential campaign next year.
The Hat Is extending far and wide, and
leading papers In almost every state have
spoken in no uncertain tones upon this
Important question. By the time the no
tional committees assemble this coming
winter to appoint the time for hoWIng the
conventions they wl'.l have fully learned
the popular sentiment. Already It Is not
uncertain, and we can now count from
thirty-flve to forty loading newspapers
favoring a short campaign as against
less than half a dozen favoring a long
and exhaustive campaign.
From these Indications the people have
a right to expect that their time will not
be diverted from business next summer,
and that the whole presidential discus
sion will be narrowed to a few weeks in
the autumn. It wH be short and sharp
and confined to the real Issues before
the people. There will bo no time ifor
mud-sllnglng, slander and abuse. It will
bo a campaign of cleanliness, decency
and order, and this will prove to be the
greatest gain In political methods that
the American people h'ave yet enjoyed.
The Seattle 'Post-Intelligencer says ed
itorially: "John Flnerty may, as he
claims, be as goud an American citizen as
any other man, but ail his high-pressure
talk about violating neutrality laws and
welcoming the sight of 500,000 Americans
fighting In behalf of Ireland Is the veriest
- bombast. He may be a good citizen, but
. certainly his Qualities as such do not
shine out conspicuously when he indirect
ly advocates a return to the Fenian meth
ods which at one time came so near
embroiling this country in dinicultles with
Great Britain. Tho people of the United
States have, as a rule, sympathized with
Ireland In all her distress, and the aid
sent from tills country during the past
fifty years shows pretty conclusively how
Americans generally feel on the question
of Irleli liberty. What has been done In
the past will probably be done in the
future, provided the Irish pep!o show
they are deserving of It. If Mr. Flnerty
thinks, however, that the American gov
ernment or the Amerlcun people general
ly are going to wink at tho efforts of
himself and friends to make the United
States the headquarters for anything like
and aggressive revolt or rebellion, he Is
very much mistaken. Mr. Flnerty thinks
neutrality laws amount to nothing; a
great many people differ with him. So
long as the home rule movement or any
other movement for bettering Ireland's
condition Is a legitimate one. It will re
ceive very warm support from a great
many people In this country, but any
reckless, misguided attempt on the part
of American citizens to covertly n.isuli
the Integrity of a power with which we
are at peace, will be summarily squelched,
as comawn sense and the law of nations
demand It should be."
Protection sentiment continues strong
and active in this Western country. In
the South It Is alt developing more and
more. Why? Because the value and ben
elH of manufacturers are better known
and understood among places that have
few or no factories, than In the indus
trial centers of the East. The resolute,
energetic pioneers who are building up
states such as Montana, the 'Dakota and
our own Oregon, regard the establish
ment of new Industries aathe only sound
basis of prosperity. Such men study
practically the growth of commonwealths
and become, as the result, atclve, zeal
An Interesting comparative study of
prison system a In the United States and
aSrrood .was presented In a paper read j
at the convention of the National Prison
Association at icnver, recently, vy uen
erai Brlnkerhoff. the president of the as
sociation. General Brlnkerhoff, who has
lately made an examination of prison
systems abroad, sail that his observation
of European prisons brought hltt to the
conclusion that whatever superiority they
ihave over those In the United States
Is due to a superior administration rath

to hire docks abroad than to build them

the use of her docks at Halifax, South

LABOR AND WAGES.
New York Tribune.
The American Protective Tariff League
has been Investigating the wages actu
ally paid In a largo number of sUb
Ilahments during the first half of this
year and of the four previous years.
Its returns embrace both the number of
hands employed at different periods and
the percentage of wages paid. As re
spects the number of hands, the returns
from nearly trt) establishments in 18S2,
January 1 to June 90, there were em
ployed 92. til. and that number waa re-du-d
In the same months of ISM to SS,
S.W. but that In 1 It tiaa Increased to
&),Q4. The decrease In 14 was S4 per
cent, and In 1SSS, notwithstanding recent
Improvement, the number of hands ap
pears to be U.S t?r cent leu than in
lrtft the last year of full prosperity under
the Republican tariff.
Aealn as to the percentage of wages
raid, returns are given from 4C5 different
establi-Smente. embracing practically the
mm In luf tries as are report d In re-
!" to the number of hands vnp'.o-e.l.
The facts .ior tht the average of
was 5 per cent higher In ISirJ than
It 1SJ. so that the remarkatole gain under
the protective tariff which the census re-
turns of demonstrated continued dur- j
ing the two following years under the
tariff of 1830. But In 1SW tho average
of wagos paid In the same establishments
was 21 per cent lefs than ltl 1803, and
the Improvement during the last six
months, although considerable, and to
wage-earners most gratifying, still leaves
the average of wages 17 per cent less
than In 1892. 'The American Economist"'
adds that "while there reported advances
In wages have been diligently announced,
nothing has been heard of the far more
numerous Instances wherein the wage
earners have not been so fortunate."
It will not be assumed by anybody that
these returns, covering only about 600
out of many thousand establishments,
necessarily represent with great accuracy
the aggregate change In the number of
hands employed or in wages of labor.
Indeed, some of the Items are apparently
open to question, either because possibly
based upon an Insufficient number of
returns, or because apparently contrary
to other Information. Printers' errors,
not carried into the tabulation of the
league, are -ssfbly responlable In some
Instances. But with all reasonable allow
ance for defects la such a statement,
the fact remains that a report covering
a greater number of hando in a greater
number of establishments and employ
ments, than have ever been Included In
previous reports of a similar character,
shows that the advance thus far effected
In wages of labor since the beginning
of thl year has been comparatively small
es respects the entire body, and stt'
leaves the average paid to labor 17 per
cent tower than In 1892 the last year of
fu'l prosperity under the Republican tar
iff. It further appears that In the large
number of establishments reporting the
material Increase In the number of hands.
which revival of business this year has
permitted, there are nevertheless1 left
without employment about 13 per cent of
the perosns employed three years ago,
It Is only fair to inter mat a correspond
ing percentage of decrease has not ap-
Deared in all occupations, although In
most manufacturing works It Is probable
that the figures given are falr.y repre
One other fact, which the league does
not bring out in Its statement as clearly
as it deserves to be brought out, Is that
the decrease has been very great in many
Important Industries, although in a few,
owing to exceptional conditions, the num
ber of hands employed Is as large as
or larger than It was three years ago.
Theso marked (inferences' in me condi
tion of Importnat Industries may readily
be traced to the blundering defects of
the tariff adopted last year. Intended to
hieak un tho protective system, although
that Intention was so far defeated that
It has been Justly called a tariff of

rrlnk beer! Don't drink' beer!
This seems like very contradictory ad
vice, but, nevertheless. It is the con
densed opinion of two great classes of
people. There are some who believe that
a glass of beer Is a healthful, invigorat
ing "beverage. There are others -who re
gard beer as a sort of disguised poison,
And the strangest thing about It Is that
both opinions may be right under certain
The fact of the matter Is that a glass
of beer may be either a benefit or a
curse, according to the health of the
person who drinks it. If a man or woman
is In sound health It may do good. If,
on the other hand, there Is a weak soot
in the liver or kidneys, Injury will result
irom the drinking. One of the greatest
proofs that liver complaint Is mo.-e com
mon than we suspect Is the oft-repeated
remark cf beer drln'kers: "I wish
hadn't taken that glass."

Gentlemen.- I had occasion to use
several boxes or Krause's Headache
Capsules while traveling to Chicago to
attend the National Democratic Con
vention. They acted like a charm In
preventing headaches and dizziness.
Have had very little headache since
my return, which Is remarkable.
