It seems that a second terra in Con
cross is not to bo accorded to Mr,
Storm without a contest. All tho coun
tics in this congressional district havo
candidates, and each ono will do all in
his power to sccuro tho prize. If tho
other counties disregard tho two term
rule, there is none that has so strong a
claim udoii the olhco as Uolumbia. m
1882 the democratic majority in Mon
tour was 612 : in (Jarbou it was 414
in Monroe. 2228 ; in Piko 709 : in the
Lnzorno portion, 917 ; and in Lacka
wanna, 775. Columbia county gave
Storm 2300 maiority. Wo havo not
only the largest majority, but tho lar-
crest democratic vote of any county in
tho district, and yet for ten years tho
nomination haa gone elsewhere tinder
the present apportionment Under
former apportionments wo have had
no representative in Congress for forty
years or more, while all the other coun
ties havo been represented within that
time. If tho two term rule prevails,
we believe it will bo satisfactory to
this county, but if it is to be set aside,
it would be an aot of great injustice to
givo the nomination to any other than
Columbia county's choice.

lyn Young Men's republican club have
held a private meeting, and havo de
cided to send out to 2,000 members
tho report of the committee which in
vestigated the record of James G.
Blaine. Tho members say tho conclu
sion has been readied after full and
careful consideration that tho best
course for tho club to pursue as an
organization is to take no action look
ing to tho endorsement of presidential
candidates, leaving each member to
vote those questions as ho may sec fit,
and that the club devote its energies to
tho local and congressional tickets in
the approaching election, llieso re
commendations aro arrived at by tho
unanimous conclusion of both tho
Blaino and anti-Blaino men, as the
best course to bo pursued under all tho
Cheap Foreign Labor.
A bill to prevent the importation of
foreign labor to this country under
contract passed the House during tho
recent session, and the alleged lovo of
tho republican party for tho laboring
man was exhibited iu the Senato by
tho failure of the bill. I ho Washing

Thero exists, consequently, nothing
to prevont tho continuanco of such im
portation, and a firm in this city has
prepared to cinbark in tho business,
with a viow of supplanting American
labor with workmen from Europe. The
Bohemo is to import Welsh and Italian
laborers to work under coutract at low
wages. W. H. Main, a real estate
agent, is at tho head of tho concern
nnd his agents aro in Europo arrang
ing for tho shipment of laborers and
domestics of all kinds, to meet all do-
mands, and to replenish tho stook by
fresh shipments as thoy nro needed.
The managers will issue circulars to
contractors all over tho country, offer

Air. Main says, confiuo themselves to
common laborers, but will get skilled
workmen who will bo willing to work
for low wages to get a foothold In this
country. Mr. Main's chiot associate in
the entorpriso is said to bo a German
named hrott, formerly an itinerant
preacher, no has now gono ta Europo,
whoro ho will preach to tho laborers of
tho advantages to bo aeriveu irom
ooming to this country. To skilled
labor they will offer special induce
ments, promising them permanent em
nlovmont nt wages much better than
they can get iu their nativo land. He
says also that hundreds of farmers hero
want to eoll their farms for want of
help. Mr. Main says ho. can afford to
pay. skilled European laborers much
higher wages than they got at homo
and still put them to work hero for
less than regular American wages.
Iu connection with this thoy propose
to run a colonization concern to bring
over foreigners, chiefly Uermaiis, who
havo a small capital, to take up West
ern timber lands. Air. Maui says thoy
havo as imioh as a hundred thousand
acres in a single region which will bo
applicable for this purpose.

The Iron Aae of Now York it do

cratic party, and compares it with that
of tho republicans, ifio article is wor
thy of careful perusal, especially by
thoso who claim that the democrats la-
vor freo trade, and we reproduce it bo-
low. It says :
The platform adopted by the con
vention is chiefly remarkablo for its ar
raignment of tho Republican party, its
principal dissimilarity with tno licpuu

Tho Democratic party Is pledged to revise tho
tariff in a spirit ot fairness to all Interests.
But In making reduction In taxes It la not propos
ed to Injure any domestic Industries, but ratlicr to
promote their healthy growth. From tho founda
tion of this Government taxes collected at tho
custom house have been tho chief source of Feder
al revenue, such they must continue to bo. More
over, many Industries havo come to rely upon leg
islation for succcssul continuance, so that any
hango ot law must bo at every step regard! ul ot
tho labor and capital thus Involved. The process
of reform must bo subject In tbo execution to this
plain dlctato of Justice all taxation shall bo limi
ted to tho requirements of economical government.
Tho necessary reduction in taxation can and must
bo effected without depriving American labor of
theabUlty to compote succcsfully with foreign
labor, and without Imposing lower rates of duty
than will bo amplo to cover any tnenraed cost of
production which may exist In conscqucnco of the
higher rate ot wages prevailing In this country
Federal Government, economically administered,
including pensions, interest and principal ot tho
public debt, can bo got under our present system
of taxation from custom-homo taxes on fewer Im
ported articles, bearing heaviest on articles ot lux
ury and bearing Ughtest on articles ot necessity,
We therefore denounce the abuso ot the existing
tariff, and, subject to tho preceding limitations,
wo demand thai Federal taxation shall bo exclu
sively for public purposes, and shall not exceed
the needs of tbo Government economically admin-

proved by implication, since no refer -
en co is mado to tho eltort in behalf of
such "tariff reform," which occupied
the mno ot tho nouso ot ueprcsenta -
lives so long last winter. Tho advo-
cates of "freo raw materials" havo mot

the Republicans, tho subject being
only slightly alluded to in a part of tho
platform disconnected with tho tariff
plank, liable to be overlooked. Essen
tial differences between thu tariff lit-
icrauces oi inu iwo panics are lucre -
foro wanting. The Republicans do- blow at tho interests of tho working
mand that "duties shall be bo levied men. On tho contrary, it is to tho ben
"as to afford security to our diveiBificd efit of the thousands of surfaeo railroad
"industries, and protection to tho

"than will be nmplo to cover any in -
"creased cost of production which may
"exist in consoquenco of tho higher
"rate of wages prevailing iu this coun -

leaders havo shown their sagacity in
avoiding a tariff policy based on tho
destruction ot the protective system,
which would undoubtedly havo allcnn-
ted innny voters from tho support of
tho ticket who nre naturally counted
iu tho Democratic ranks. As many
workiugineii aro embraced among them,
it was natural that tho convention, in

other things :
Desplto twenty years of peace, Republican nilo

Britain, along with our commerce, tho control ot
the markets of the world. Instead of tho Repub
lican party's British policy, wo demand In behalf ot

It is very truo that, no matter what
the causo of American commercial de
cadence may hvo been, vigorous ef
forts should havo been put forth long
before this by our Government to re
store tho merchant inarino of this coun
try to its old condition of commanding
importance. Tho Republicans deserve
reproach for their apathy in this mat

Both of tho great political parlies

been mado by ingenious plattorm
builders to please tho conservative bus

manufacturing interest of the country.
The platforms aro so constructed that
differences of meaning will bo difficult
to demonstrate, and an effort will bo
made to havo their opponents judged
by tho speeches of their Congressional
Representatives mado last winter in
tho heat of animated debate, rather
than by the deliberate statement of
principles mado by a carefully selected

summation devoutly to bo wished, as a
business man or a manufacturer could

without a thought ot possible mterriip

not two distant movements, but ono

been voting tho greenback or rcpubli

hold another meeting and send to tho
republican papois a report that 100
