TUB INTERESTS OF I.ABOB.
A true American sentiment recognizes tho d!
nltv of labor, and tho fact that honor lies in hon
est, contented labor Is an clement ot national
Drosncrity. Ability to work constitutes tno capi
tal and tho wage of labor tho Income ot a vast
number ot our population, and this interest snouid
bo Jealously protected. Our worklngmen are not
asking unreasonable Indulgence ; but as intelli
gent and manly citizens, they seek tho samo con
sideration which thoso demand who havo other
interests nt stake, mey should recelvo their full
share of the care and attention ot thoso.-who mako
and execute the laws, to the end that tho wants
and needs ot the employers and employed Shan
alike bo subserved.and tho prosperity ot the
country, the common heritage of both bo advanc
ed. As related to this Bubject, while we should
not dlscourago tho Immigration of thoso who
come to acknowledge nllcglanco to our govern.
mentondnddto our citizen population, yet as a
means of protection to our worklngmen a different
rule should prevail concerning thoso who, It they
come or are brought to our laud, do not Intend lo
becomo American citizens, but will Injuriously
competo with thoso Justly entitled to our Held ot
PROTECTION FOU LABOR.
In a letter nccoptlng tho nomination to tlio onico
ot Governor, nearly two years ago, I maao tno
following statement, to which I havo steadily ad
hered: "Tho laboring classes constltuto uio
main part of our population, mey should be pro
tected In their efforts peacably to assert their
rights when endangered by aggregated capital,
and all statutes on this subject should recognize
the care ot tho Stato for honest toll and bo framed
with a view ot Improving tho condition ot the
worklngman. A proper regard for tho wolfaro ot
tho worklngman being Inseparably connected with
tho integrity of our institutions, uono of our citi
zens are more Interested than they in guarding
against any corrupting lnnueneos which seek to

cheap, much cheaper than in many

FOSTER, MILBURN II CO, Prop'., Buffate, N.Y.
It is a hard time for mer
chants, especially for manu
facturers; and by a hard
time we mean a time when
they are losing money rather
than makincr. This is the
general fact. A merchant who
bought lus goods six months
ago is sure to be losing now;
a manufacturer who is at
work on stuff that is already
too plenty ts worse on than
the merchant, buch is the
condition of most merchants
and manufacturers now for
a few month's.
Wholesale merchants and
manufacturers, both, are
holding great quantities of
almost everything in trade;
holding not for better prices
for buyers. Buyers are
scarce, because merchants
have got already more than
they can sell. There is gen
But this very condition of
things affords a signal oppor
tunity for a merchant who is
not burdened with goods
and has the requisite outlet.
He can buy any quantity of
the most desirable merchan
dise, undersell the retail
market, and still make a
profit. This is our condition
We sell in a year more
than four times the quantity
of goods we now have in
stock; and our sales are
going to be more, not less;
because we adapt our buying
and selling to the times we
are in. We spoke of mak
ing a profit on these low
prices. Not always. We
are not smart enough to
judge correctly beforehand
always. When we miss the
best thing, we try the next
best. When we find we
have bought on a falling
market, we hasten to sell at
a loss, instead of waiting
after the ancient fashion ; but
the outgoing tide of trade
here carries the wrecks off
so quickly that we do not
stop to grieve over losses.
Time is emphatically money
where events develop so fast
What is the result, that we
ask you to read of our.prob
lems and tactics ? Why, the
result is that here is a differ
ent condition of things from
what you expect of the gene
ral dulness. It is said to be
dull; no trade. It isn't dull
here, not even in August of
a very hard summer. Every
body is holding his or her
money a little more firmly ;
everybody is a little more
cautious in paying it out.
That is all in our favor. The
harder the time and the more
cautious people become, the
more readily they go to a
place where advantage tum
bles to their side of the bar
gain with the solidest guar
antee (money back if they
want) on the top of it.
We are not old enough yet
to be cittite sure of the fact;
but it looks as if hard times
were actually good for us
here, as if people might need
the stimulus of fear to bring
out the fullness of their esti
mate of what we are steadily
doing in good times and bad.
The store is full of mer
chandise; and the pricts are
what our view of the oppor
tunitv makes them. It is not
a time for the quickest things
of fashion. It is a time for
trettinir almost all the sub
stantial staple things to wear
and keep house with. It is
a time to make money by
spending it. It is a time for
caution ; but the caution is to
be shown in choosing what
you buy, and the bargain
vou make. And surely when
the bottom appears to be
reached in goods, and the
top of the purchasing power
in money, and people are
trvitiQ- to be watchful and
wise that is our time to
advertise, to tell as nearly as
we, can what is going on here
