Since the United States government

sum must be added the civil expendi

the Indians, which, between 1770 and
1890, amounted to $259,944,082, making
a total of $1,067,017,740 for civil and

MINERS ARE PROSPEROUS.
An Esnmplr of the Ileneflta of a Pro
tective Tariff to Work
No better illustration of the benefi
cial effects of the Dingley tariff could
be desired than may be had by a com
parison of the financial and industrial
condition of the southeast Missouri
lead district now and two years ago.
As is generally known, lend is the lead
ing product of this section, and the
price of this staple is a sort of barome
ter governing the price of all other
products. As the price of lead goes up
or down, the price of labor, farm prod
ucts, etc., advance or decline.
Under the operation of the Wilson
tariff law the price of lead was steadily
hammered down until at the time of
the presidential election of IS9O it was
only worth about cents per pound.
At this price it was only the largest
and best equipped plants that, by rea
son of great output, were able to con
tinue operations without actual loss.
And even this was only made possible
by a system of economizing that, while
cutting expenses in every other direc
tion also, necessarily reduced the price
of labor to the lowest living rate, while
the amount of labor that could find em
ployment even at these reduced rates
was greatly restricted.
Lead being the basis on which every
other industry rested, and from which,
directly or indirectly, all others ob
tained the means of continuing their
existence, it naturally followed that,
owing to the small amount of money
disbursed by the lead interest, the de
mand for all other products was greatly
reduced, enterprise of every kind was
completely paralyzed, and a condition
of business stagnation that amounted
to absolute financial distress existed
in the lead district of southeast Mis
souri less than two years ago.
To realize the change that has been
wrought under a republican adminis
tration in the short time it has beeti at
the helm, one has only to open his eyes
and look about him. An advance of
about 30 per cent, in the price of lead
has restored wages, inspired new min
ing enterprises, giving employment to
additional labor, while the old plants
are all operating to their full capacities.
Large accessions have been made both
to the population and permanent
wealth of the district, while a feeling of
security and confidence in the sound
ness and permanence of our present
financial system pervades the whole
During the past eight months there
have been more substantial improve
ments made in this place (among which
I may mention a $25,000 public school
house) than during any previous five
years in its history. Jlepublicans do
not now have to offer arguments in
vindication of their policy, it being
only necessary to refer to their record
and point to facts already accom
In the meantime those who two years
ago were near going into convulsions in
contemplation of the dire calamities

A TARIFF FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Dinuley !.au lliin Put Money in
Ihe i'ocketa of Our
A census of leading industries in 47
«tates and territories shows that under
the Dingley law there is a great in
crease in wages paid to labor. The
amount of wages for 1898 is 44 J er cent.,
or $1,004,015,272 gieater than in 1805.
This comes home to all who were out
of employment or were employed at
low wages in 1895 and 1890. There was
improvement as soon as it was known
that Mr. McKinley was elected, and
there was still greater improvement as
soon as the Dingley bill became a law.
\ billion dollars mo'f went into the
pockets of workingmen in the last
year than in 1895. If the amount paid
to agricultural laborers, miners and
miscellaneous workers is added, the la
borers of the United States will be
found to have received $2,000,000,000
more in 189S than in 1895.
The value of the home market in the
United States is 20 times the aggregate
value of all our foreign markets. The
Dingley law gave the Americans the
advantage in the home market, yet at
the same time it enabled our manufac
turers to enter foreign markets 'o a
li.rger extent than ever before. The
exports of merchandise from the Unit
ed States increased from $793,392,299
under the Wilson tariff in 1895 to sl,-
210,291,91.'i under the Dingley tariff in
When President Harrison sent his
last message to congress in December,
1592. the country was at the high-water
mark of prosperity. The national debt
had been decreased, there was a surnlus
in the treusury and there was activity
in every branch of industry. Under
Cleveland ard the Wilson tariff the na
tional debt was increased, the treasury
was depleted and industries were pros
trated. Under the Dingley tariff law
the surplus in the treasury increased,
and when war came upon the country
the money for war expenses was ready.
In spite of war we continued to send
American goods abroad and to receive
gold in return. The Dingley law has
increased our producing capacity, has
put more money in the pockets of our
laborers and has built up great enter
prises that have given employment to
'housands who, under the Wilson law,
were idle. What more can the Amer
ican people «»k? —Chicago Inter Otvwin.

LIES OF SILVERITES.
The- I'nnir Makcm Arc Apn I u at Their
Old Trick*—Tlielr Flop on
I lie \\ hr.
A local democratic silverite paper
prints some cartoons representing the
republican party as disclaiming the
war at its approach and claiming it
after it was over. The falsity of such
assertions will be apparent to every
thinking man. When the proposition
of war with Spain first began to be
broached the great majority of the
"peace at any price" men were sixteen
to one bad money democrats, headed by
Bryan and flanked by mugwumps. And
now a sixteen to one organ has the un
utterable effrontery to label its own
party's unpatriotic bellowings as re
The value-destroying, panic-making
free silver democrats at the head of the
party never wanted to see Cuba freed,
lirst, last or at any time, lintthe young
men among the democrats, in spite of
their unpatriotic leaders, joined the
young republicans in insisting that
Spain should be punished for its horri
ble perfidy in destroying the Maine,
and that the Cubans should be rescued
from its tyrannical, robber grasp. The
whole republican party, with the presi
dent at its head, came marching rapid
ly up to this patriotic position, not only
remaining there but progressing 418
What have the democratic leaders
done in the meantime? At first they
pretended to support the president in
his war measures, because they were
afraid of the resentment of the young
democrats. But they soon saw that the
war was going to table or kill their
darling sixteen to one, panic-making
scheme, so they ceased to support the
war. Since then they have been fight
ing it and its supporters and howling
for nothing but the bad money plank of
l.r,van's Chicago platform. That was
the cause of their backward flop. That
is where they stand.
This prating about a "republican
war" is all in the talk of the partisan
sixteen to one democrats. Why are
they all anti-expansionists, "Col." Bry
an at their head? Why are they mak
ing war on the president ? Why are the
bad money schemers sheering at and
deriding "republican statesmanship"
and offering nothing themselves but
hostility mid abuse? They hated the
war from the word go, and tlicy hate it
now, with all its glorious results, be
cause these things only show up the
vontemptible littleness of their pirati
cal designs upon the credits and the
prosperity of the nation. That is the
real animus of all the democratic jeal
ousy of the recent war.—Chicago Trib

The refutation of the plea of the sil
verites that there is not enough gold to
answer the demands of the gold stand
ard for money is found in the reports
of the production of gold throughout
The director of the mint has just pub
lished his report of the gold production
of the United States and of the world
for last year. It shows a vast increase
over J Mill, just as 1890 showed an in
crease over preceding years.

The I'nited States comes next with over
$57,000,000, and Australia next with
over if ■.1,000,000. Kussia leads European
countries with $23,000,000. Altogether
the world's output of gold for lh'JT was
nearly $2.'i8,000.000, which is an increase
of Olio,ooo over the output of IS9O,
and more than twice as much as was
produced in IS9O.
The indications for the present year
are that these figures will be surpassed
and that not less than $270,000,000 will
be the production for IS9B.
The statistics for the United States
show that Colorado has at least sur
passed California as a pold state, her
output being $19,000,000, as against
$14,000,000 for California. South Da
kota —the Black Ilills region—comes
next with $5,000,000, and Montana with
$4,000,000. With such a production of
gold the world over—one that is a
permanent addition to the world's
wealth —how futile it is to say that
there is not gold enough to answer the
demands of a monetary system founded
Tt may seem paradoxical to say so,
but the more gold we have the less we
will need it as money. The world's
business is done upon paper, and all
that is needed is a uniform standard
for the paper. That standard is gold,
and we have it in abundance. —Chicago

Democratic .Majority in lln' House,
Washington, Nov. 11.—Chairman
Kabcock, of the republican congres
sional committee, believes that the
republican majority in tlie next house
will reaeh la. He is convinced that
the manifest drift in the west when
the returns are all 111 will show that
enough districts, now doubtful, have
been carried to swell the majority to
13. Mr. Babcoek says that the gains
in the west are due to the desire of the
people to indorse the administration
and to express their satisfaction over
the return of prosperity. The repub
licans carried five districts west of the
Missouri which they hardly hoped for,
but they were offset by the loss of
four districts in New York and one in
Masssohusetts, so that Mr. Babcock's
original calculations as to the result
proved approximately correct.
Mr. Itabcock says the public hardly
realizes the full extent of the republic
an victory. Even more important, he
says, than the fact that the next house
will be republican is the sweeping
change in the senate, where the fruits
of Tuesday's election will give the re
publicans IS majority. "That majori
ty cannot possibly be overcome for
eight years," said Mr. Uabcock, "and
for at least that period the business in
terests of the country are safe. Repub
lican policies must prevail for that
length of time. Even if the next house
and the next president should be for
free silver, a republican senate would
block their path. Besides the majority
in the senate will give us a clean
working majority there for the enact
ment of our policies without the em
barrassment that comes from narrow
majorities. There need be 110 deals
with the kickers. We will have a re
publican majority sufficient to work
freely and what we do can be done
with the knowledge that our legisla
tion will have ample time to vindicate
itself before a hostile senate can be
lected to upset it."
Late in the afternoon Chairman
Uabcock completed a list of the repre
sentatives elected to the Fifty-sixth
eongress. The latest authentic advices
received by tlie republican committee
indicate that two districts are in doubt
yet, viz.. the Second California and the
Twefth Texas, in both, however, Mr.
IJabcoek concedes that the chances are
favorable to the democrats. Mr. Uab
cock \s figures show the election of 185
straight republicans, 103 democrats,
six populists and one silver republican.
These figures do not include tlie two
doubtful districts mentioned. Con
ceding these two districts to the demo
crats, as a means of reaching delftiite
results, Mr. Babcock claims a certain
majority of 13 over all opposition.
Little information of a definite
nature was received by the democratic
congressional committee last night.
Secretary Kerr maintained that the
opposition to the republicans would
organize and control the next house.
His figures indicated that the opposi
tion would have at least ISO votes and

Philadelphia, Nov. 11.—Senator Quay
last night announced his candidacy
for re-election to his present office. He
"All of my friends have been aware
of my personal apathy to another term
in the senate, but those prominent in
the late crusade against the republican
state and legislative candidate,* chose
to force the issue. They have made it
imperative that 1 shall be a candidate
for re-election. The gauge of battle
is accepted. The result is in the hands
of the republican members of the in
coming legislature, a very large pro
portion of whom are my political and
personal friends. Throughout the
campaign just closed enormous sums
of money were used to defeat repub

doubt efforts will be made to tamper
with some of the members-elect, but
they will not be successful. The at

CLUMSYBY'S LACK OF TACT.
He Hail n I'll i lonopli I<■ Method ufTiiru.
liiK 'litis Lack to ill* Own
"One of the things that have been most
helpful to me in the course of my life," said
Mr. Clumsyby, "has been my luck of tact.
This may seem like a contradiction, but it is
really very simple.
"I have always fancied that I could attend
to business for other people all right, but I
never had any taet about my own; that is,
about my personal relations with people; I
always bungle them whenever I attempt to
do anything. Thus, if 1 have a m'sunder
standing or difference with anybody about
anything and 1 set about straightening it
out, I can't possibly do it except in one way;
I have togo at it nat-footed; I haven't any
more diplomacy than a stone image. And,
moreover, besides being clumsy about it, J
am pretty sure to say too much; to say
things that it isn't necessary to say. Ia
other words, I haven't any tact at all.
"And at first this was a great drawback to
me. But after awhile I made a discovery;
that if 1 didn't exercise my tact I shouldn't
make any mistakes by it, and, following that
course for a time, I came to a realization of
the fact that there's a great lot of things
that we run up against in life which may
be irritating at the time, that are, however,
not worth squabbling over at all, whether a
man's got tact or not, and I was sure to
make a mess of these things if I tried to do
anything about them, why, I don't try; I
simply let 'em go!
"And that's what I've been doing now for
years, not bothering about every little trifle,
but letting the little things go, and not both
ering about 'em at all; paying no attention
to them whatsoever. And so I have been
enabled to preserve my equanimity and
avoid all useless wear and tear; and thus my
lack of tact has finally proved most helpful
"But I have to keep a watch all the time."
