WHAT WILL THEY HO WITH IT ?
Now the republicans have won their
victory the question arises, "What will
They Do with It ?" They already have
the Senate and after March 4th will have
the chief executive and the House of Itcp.
resentatlves. Full power for legislative
action, with all its responsibilities, will be
theirs. What will they do to reduce the
growing surplus piling up In the treasury
and threatening business interests by a
rapidly contracting currency ? Will they
follow" the dogma of the Chicago platform
and repeal the internal revenue taxes
"rather than give up any part of our pro
tective 6) sem .'" Will they, following the
ant'-platform lines of the Senate bill.reduce
the duty on sugar by half, increase duty on
wool and woolens, give the country free
alcohol for the arts, free tobacco and free
chemicals ? Will they, taking a lesson from
Dlsrae , face about and pass a genuine
tariff reform bill in the direction of gn.-r.ter
freedom cf trade ? Or will they attempt to
relieve the congested treasury by extrava
gant appropriations ? Whichever course
they shall attempt they will find lion in
the way republican lions threatening to
rend their party in twain. The wisest re
publican leaders well know the tariff taxes
must be materially reduceJ or the hold of
their party on power will be short. Doubt
less some of these leaders will attempt a
reduction of the onerous duties. But can
they hope to succeed ? Have they not so
educated a large part of the rank and file
of their party into economic Ignorance and
blcroted belief in salvation by high tariff
taxation that any attempt on their part to
follow the oath of wisdom will result only
in their own political destruction ? It would
seem that, committed as it is to the high
nrotection heresv, the coming republican
maiority in Congress will be forced in the
very nature of things to go on and on in
its high taxing career until the party is
swept from power by the rising wrath of a
plundered people and with it the whole
system of protection robbery and waste.
The democratic press w ill cast no reflec-1
tion on Grover Cleveland. He Is an honest
courageous man, who did his duty with
conscientious sinccrity.without speculating
upon the partisan consequences. Not since
Lincoln has there been as brave and honest
a president as Grover Cleveland. That he
failed of the reward that he ought to have
had was because he was a statesman and a
patriot, rather than a scheming, tricky
nliilcnn. Not less in defeat than in vic
tory do the democrats honor Grover Cleve
lmul and this will be the sentiment of the
democratic patty everywhere.
"The tariff is ill the hands of its friends,"
says a republican paper. This means that
it is in the hands of millionaires who have

The shut down contemplated by the coal
operator in the Monongahela district,
whereby 6ooo miners will be thrown ont of
employment at the very beginning ot win
ter, is but the renetition of an old story.
It Is not because coal Is too plentiful that
the mines are closed. An artificial scarci
ty is regularly created by the Coal Ring
in order to "maintain prices." All the coal !
mined could he sold at a fair profit if all
who need fuel could afford to buy what
thev want. But the operators could not
then "make large fortunes each year" by
an arbitrary increase ot tne price.
This is the way of trusts and other com
binations. Thev first secure control of the
market, then "restrict production"and then
advance the price. Meanwhile the "pro
tected" workingmen are remorselessly
thrown Into enforced Idleness because the
monopoly decides to "put the screws" on
How do the good people relish the pros
pect of "four years more" of this sort of

Growing Demands of Linn County,
Amongst what may be called the queer
results of the election is the declaration by
William Walter Phelps that unless the re
publican party gives the country some
drastic tariff reform it will be beaten and
permanently destroyed In 1892. While it
msv be said that Mr. Phelps' views are
toned bv the result in his own state, New
Jersey, in which the manufacturing era
ployers and laborers vied with each other
in earnestness for the principles of the
President's message, It must in candor be
confessed that they have a broader base.
Accepting the theory of protection as
taught by Clay and all Us great apostles,
our "Infant manufactures" begin to feel
the restraint of their childish garments and
are quickened by the purposes of complet.

and accept Senator Evarts chance endorse
ment of commercial truth when he aid,"If
we wish to sell we must consent to buy."
