Farmer Stanley Wants Some of

Of all the novel lawsuits that are an
nually begun in the rural districts of
Iloosierdom none ontranks in oddity the
claim for damages that Farmer William
Bartholomew Stanley, of Madison county,
Indiana, has lironglit against Congress
man Hynnm, of bis district.
Farmer Stanley puts his damages at
tl.tm, which he will ask the courts to
help him collect from Mr. Bynum on the
grounds that IJynum caused him to lose
that amount by saying in a i-psech deliv
ered at Pendleton in the last campaign
that wheat would sell at $1.25 a bushel if
Cleveland were eleced. Havina implicit
faith in the Grasshiiriier," as Bynum is
jokingly dublied nt his home, the farmer
says, in Uis complaint, that he went ahead
and planted in wheat all the ground he
could spare on his farm.
The lirst year he refused to sell at So
cents, n:id raised iik re wheat, so as to
have his bins vrrflr. iv.it when the price
should reach the vr'-niised ?t.i. Hut

to the luxurious s.i notch. Stanley says,
he held Lack niore th::n 1.11.1 bushels,
which he has now been forctd to dispose
of at the bankrupt price of 4."i cents.
Farmer Stanley does not hold that Con
gressman liyutim could put the price of
wheat nt $l.'M it he chose, but hesays that
Bynum's false representation in hold
ing out the allurement ot in case
of Cleveland's election was the direct
cause of farmers all through Madison
county raising wheat at the expense of
other and more remunerative crops. II

Nonconformist, a Populist newspaper, a
few days ago. His feet were on the editor's
desk and several printers were listening
to bis recital of his wrongs.
TO EMI CAMI'AICX LVISO.
"If Gd lets me live, and I ain't got no
notice to the contrary,'' he said, chewing
the socgy eud of a Madison county stoga,
"I'll have the law on Ry num. I have made
op my mind to make him stand good i !
the difference in my wheat crop, and if
there he any justice in courts I'll win the
suit. This thing of politicians coming out
in the country districts and hoodwinkin'
the farnier3 with lies and promises jist to
git votes was all right ttack in war times,
when we didn't know nothing 'cept what
was t.ild us.
"A farmer 'at dont know euough to get
In the house when it rains, a body nat
ur'ly expects to buy gold bricks, or bet on
three card moute. But we lieen learniu'
since them days, and. d'yew know, I con
aider a man who will stand up and lie to
the farmer to get his vote no Iietter'u a
horse tiiief. 1 can't see why Bynum ain't
es guilty, er guiltier, for that matter, as a
man who conies to my house and sells me
a broken wind and spavined horse for a
sound critter. The conrt'll purtect me if
1'ui swindled iu buyin' a lad horse, and
it's no moreu right 'at I he purtected if a
congressman gets me to plant nil my farm
in wheat, 'siiectiu' to get a big price, and
then the price goes down to that point
where it's cheaper to feed it to hogs than
to haul it to market.
"I never hud enough schoolin' when I
was a boy to hurt me, and I never read
law none, but my lawyer, who is ez sharp
ez three-year-old vinegar, tolls me law is
just common sense, and if it ain't com
mon sense that 1 ought to have damages
for losin' on my wheat crop then they
ain't no such thing as common sense in
the books. Now, there's my nearest neigh
bor. Jim Holliiisworth. He says, says he:
'Bill, you go in and give Bynum a taste
of law. I'll stand in vith you, and nfier
you've done with him I'll take a whack at
FooI.KK WORKMEN", TOO.
" 'Twixt us two I think we'll make Bill
Bynum have more care about what he
says to the farmers the next time.' Anil
we ain't the only ones that has it in for
him either. He was mighty scarced the
last time be run for congress, and he was
ub.ut ready to promise anything. He
gave tis the i.'St wheat story, but when
he got up to Klwood anil Alexandria and
Anderson and Summitville, where they
got ail them glass factories and rolling
mills with natural gas, he told the men it
Cleveland was elected they would have
work the year 'round, and wages would
go up, and they would all be owuin' their
own houses in less than no time.
"Well, they got it harder than we did.
Six months after Cleveland was elected
the glass factories and iron works all
closed down, and they have been that way
for a year. The men ain't had no work,
and in some places they have been takiu'
up victuals and old clothes to give 'em.
"When thr.t Wilson bill was before con
gress they sent petitions long enough to
reach across a ten acre Held askin' Bynum
not to vote for free glass and iron, but all
the satisfaction they got was the answer
that he had to stand by the party plat
form. Well, they ain't notbin' in the plat
form as 1 could see that said a man
shouldn't have work, nor anything agin
wheat sellin' nt fl.'-Tia bushel, but Bynum
and the rest of the Democrats went right
ahead makin' the times harder every day,
until now we're worse off than since
the war. It's mighty funny if he shouldu't
have to pay for it."
"But do you expect to get a verdict on
that sort of a case?" was asked.
AFTEl: HVXI M'S SCALP.
"Well, I don't know so much about
that. If I was on the jury I'd sock it to
him good aud strong. I don't know any
jury he could get iu Madison county that
wouldn't make him pay. Howsomever, I
don't much expect to beat him. I only
want to get the thing noised about so as
to kinder stir up the fellers 'at's been let
tin1 such blowhards as Bynum do thei;
thinkin' for 'em. It'll give mesompin'to
talk about nil fall, and as I'm thinkin' of
luakiu' some political speeches myself
duri:: :Iie campaign, it'll sorter advertise
the meet iu's beforehand.
"Ju-t btfi.re Bynum conies around to
campaign the district 1 11 be there a
couple o' days ahead of him and fill up
the boys wit h a bagful of qnestions to fire
at him. I think its more' a likely you'll
see some purty lively meetiu's up our wav
'fore 'lection, and they'll be livelier fer a
man named Bill Bynum than fer any one
I can disrememter at this writ in .
"I'm out fer Bynum's scalp, my neigh
bor's is all after his scalp, and I'll bet a
Jersey calf right here and now that we
get it. We nominated a farmer, and
while we mayn't be strong enough to
'lect him this time, we'll take enough
good Democratic votes from Bynum that
the Republicans can elect Charles Henry
over in Anderson without tnruin' a hair."
FOE GENERAL HASTINGS.
Why m Kawspapar That Supported Gov
ernor Pattlsoa Is for tha Republican
Candidate for Govarnor This Tear.
The Bituminous Record, an indepen
dent newspaper published at Phillips
burg, which supported Governor Pattison
in the campaign of 1890, and which is par
ticularly devoted to the interests of the
hard working miner, has concluded to
support General Hastings for governor
this year, in arriving at this conclusion
the oaDcr avs in nartt
I IT IMKVr STOP WOBEntO.
Following the defeat of his candidate,
Mr. McAleer, for renominatlon aa tha
Democratic candidate for congress in the
Third district last week, Mr. Singerly.the
Democratic candidate for governor, issued
an address to the state Democrats as fol- :
"The action of the Democrats who con
trolled th convention in tha Third dis
trict yesterday, it may aa well be con
fessed now as sixty days hence, will thor
oughly demoralize, dishearten and defeat
Democratic effort to poll fnll vote in
this city in November. This district was
the key to the situation in Philadelphia,
and Democrats throughout the state are
entitled to a candid admission of the fail
nre of the organization here to bring
about harmonious action, and the neces
sary consequences of failnre.
"From this time fort h the canvas should
be waged throughout the state with a
view to the election of as many congress
men, senators, representatives and county
officials as possible, without special effort
for the state ticket. Effort should be con
centrated at these points where it may
prove effectual. The state ticket has been
doomed by the practical abandonment of
organized action in Philadelphia, where
100.000 Democrats have allowed them
selves to be handcuffed and delivered into
the control of a few contemptible ring
sters, roosters and ruffians."
This practically means that Mr. Sin
gerly has withdrawn from the head of
the Democratic ticket and that he means
to have nothing more to do with the cam
paign. Kepublicnns, however, shonld not take
too much for granted and ran the risk of
suffering thereby. The general effort
started all over the state several weeks
ago to conduct this campaign from a lie
publican standpoint, as though there
were dangers of defeat, shonld be contin
ued to the end. There shonld be no ces
sation of the efforts to poll every vote of
the Republican party, and every vote of
that great army of dissatisfied former
Democrats for the Republican candidates
who are upholding in this contest the
cause of protection to American work
men. The greater the Republican major
ity in Pennsylvania this year the surer
will it be that no more efforts will be made
to pauperize the labor of the country.
Let the opposition act as it will, but
there should be no let up to Republican
effort; and while it caunot be doubted
that the indications for a remarkably large
Republican majority are increasing all of
the time, that is all the greater reason
why Republican effort should continue
until the last vote is polled. Much is ex
pected of Pennsylvania. Let her continue
her record for warranting the expecta
tions of those who always depend upon
her to lead in any cause that is a good one.
It is not a question of Mr. Singerly now
anymore than it was in the beginning, bat
of the policy of the party he represents,
and that fart should be borne in mind to
the end, no matter what disturbances oc
cur within the ranks of the supporters of
President Cleveland and the poverty pro
ducing policy of bis administration.
CLEVELAND ADMITS IT.
A favorite argument of the few Penn
sylvanians who continue to advocate the
policy of the Democratic party is to claim
that the bard times that have existed dur
ing the time that the present Democratic
administration has been in power were a
legacy from President Harrison's admin
istration. There are numerous good argu
ments well known toevery observnnt man
against this foolish claim, but one of the
best was presented by Congressman Bab
cock, of Wisconsin, iu a speech in con
gress, in which he quoted from the mes
sage of President Cleveland to congress
on Aug. T, ls'.'-l. to prove that the Repub
lican party left no such legacy when it
went out of power for a brief season. Mr.
"President Cleveland's message conven
ing congress in extra session Ang. 7, 1893,
states that financial distrust and fear
have sprnug up on every side suddenly.
We admit the fact. The opening sentence
of his message is as follows:
"With plenteouscrops.wlth abundant prom
ise of remunerative production and manu
facture, with unusual invitation to safe in
vestment, and with satisfactory assurance to
business enterprise, sudden hnancial distrust
and fear have sprung up on every side.
"The Republicans lielieve just what the
president has said in his message. Busi
ness assurance, safe investment, abundant
promise, but it was all chauged suddenly
when the people discovered the power they
had placed iu the handsof the Democrats.
"Hradstrect and Dun report a loss ot
tJ,(M,iKi,(KX to trade since the inaugura
tion of President Cleveland. To this must
be added about fifty millions of a deficit
in the national finances and fifty millions
of bonds issued to carry on the govern
ment. If the results of the new tariff bill
should prove to be all that its friends
have claimed for it it will have to earn
one thousand millions each year of the re
mainder of President Cleveland's term iu
order to place the government and the
people in as good condition financially as
they were on the 8th day of November.
181J, when Grover Cleveland was elected.
This is more than auy Democratic admin
istration has accomplished.
"The Democrats were in power fifty-six
years previous to the present term of Mr.
Cleveland. For that whole period the
balance of trade was against as to the
amount of 1,12O,0(ni.OiO. Two thousand
years of Democratic rule would not bring
bu-k to us the loss sustained during this
"From 1S74 to ISM there never was a de
ficit iu the treasury, but on June 30, ISM,
under the management of the present ad
ministration, a real delicit did occur."
WllKUbVEU General Hastings and his
associates have visited thus far in the
campaign they have beeu warmly wel
comed, aud the crowds that have turned
out to hear a discussion of the issue of the
campaign have been remarkably large.
A feature of all the meetings thus far has
been the attendance of many working
men who have heretofore voted the Dem
ocratic ticket. Close observers who have
been present at the meetings give soma
indication of what may be expected by
the statement that whenever the policy of (
protection has been praised and the policy :
of free trade denounced none have been ,
more free in applauding the one and cry- ;
ing down the other than the workingmen !
who have been present at the meetings. :
The Republican party never was afraid
to trust the settlement of any issue to the
t.-orkingmen, and it has no fear this year.
tsr a:; Investigation, so tuorongn as m
leave no room to doubt its correctness, it
is shown that wheu the country was pros
perous under protect ion in p!ri the con
sultation of n heat was 5.!1 bushels f. r
every one of o.ir population. A yearluier,
daring the Democratic hard times, the
consumption of wheat fell off it7 4.ST
bushels for each person, a decrease of 1. lit;
bushels per capita, or a total decrease of
71, 550,000 bushels. This falling off in the
demand for wheat shows the farmers why
wheat was cheaper, the people not being '
able even to buy as much bread when the 1
fear of free trade was hanging over them I
as w-hen they were at work and prosper
ous under protection.
HON. Tom JoilNSox.t he celebrated Demo
cratic congressman from Ohio, said of the
Gorman tariff bill: "Voo will find as soon
as the bill is signed by the president t hat
you have made a present of fW.OOO.OOO in
cash to the sugar trust, besides enabling
it to tax the people millions more every
year; aud you will find every bag of sugar
sold for a dollar decreased iu size oiic
third, and every woman who buys it a
missionary to preach against the Demo
cratic party and its doctrines." The presi
dent did nut sign the bill, but permitted
" - law without bis siguature.
EVEUT intelligent Pemi.-yivaniau wul
do his part in voting this year to r -mote
a renewcl of the prosperity that ix
Isted before the free traders came imo
power. The way to do it is to vote them
"Our choice has not been made unad
visedly or without thorough investiga
tion, and in recommending General D. II.
Hastings to the wage earners of this state
as the candidate for governor for whom
they shonld cast their ballots we have
pursued the same line we have in former
campaigns we are giving our support to
the man whom we believe will prove tha
best friend, and will do the most, for the
grand body of workingmen in this grand
old commonwealth, and to no class of
workingmen more so than to the miners."
A history of General Hastings' life fol
lows, after which The Record concludes
"Summing it all np, then, what are tha
special features in connection with the
career of the Republican candidate for
governor as an employer of labor, and as
a man, that should commend his candi
dacy to the favorable consideration of the
wage earners of this state, and especially
the miners, and more particularly the
members of labor organizations?
We take them to be as follows:
First That he was not reared in the
lap of luxury, being born of parents oc
enpying the most humble position in life.
Second That his boyhood and early
manhood flays were spent in a heroic
struggle with circumstances and condi
tions less favorable than is that of thou
sands of miners today.
Third That in overcoming adverse cir
cumstances and conditions he exhibited
the spirit that shonld possess every Ameri
can boy his success furnishing a com
mendable example to thousands who will
vote for him because of the fact that he
has made himself what he is.
Fourth Because of his pronounced and
well known sympathy for those who are
struggling to better their condition in
life, and his disposition to aid them when
Fifth Because of his approachableness
his readiness to grasp the hand of the
toiler just as cordially as thatof the most
wealthy a habit not affected, but natural,
and which has made him so popular with
Sixth Because of his position as to tha
semi-monthly payment of wages, always
having paid promptly and in cash, and in
accordance with a law the adoption of
which he favored.
Seventh Because of his opposition to
the pluck-me store system of paying
wages, at present as well as at a time
when there was no law in the state to
prohibit corporations from running pluck
me stores, and not only his oppostion to
paying in store truck, but objecting as
well to countenancing the giving of store
orders ou otherSstores neitiier owning a
store or making a profit out of orders given
on other stores.
Ninth His recognition of check weigh
man law, of check weighmenand the col
lection through the office of check weigh
niau's pay, as well as other monies the
miuers expressed a desire to have col
lected, and without charging the men a
Tenth Because of his refusal to recog
nize any blacklist, giving employment to
every miner applying for work provided
there was n vacant place in the mine re
gardless of the applicant's reputation as
nzi upholder of labor organizations.
Kleveulb Because of his position as to
immigration until the country has ah
sorbe1 its surplus labor, to the cud that
labor should not only be lietter paid, but
in order, nl-o, that American labor
should nut have to comp.de with pauper
lubor either nt home orabrond.
Twclit 1: Because of bis known opposi
tion to unnecessary reductions iu wages
and bis equally well known practice of
always pay ing as high, and in some in
stances higher, wages than was paid by
many of hiscumpetttors in tho coal busi
ness. Can ada is joyous over the effect of the
new tariff law in the I'nited States. With
free lumber It has liecn possible for as
much as 1,700,(IO feet of lumber from
Canada to be landed at the single port of
Oswego, N. Y., within thirty-six hours.
As much more is expected to arrive daily.
Democratic newspapers may be expected
to tell their readers in the Pennsylvania
lumber regions that this will, have no
effect upon them, but the intelligent lum
ber workers will hardly believe it. They
know that the Canadian lumber that
comes in fills a waut that would other
wise be supplied by the Pennsylvania pro
duct, and that the coming of the Cana
dian product is sure to sooner or later
make it necessary to cut the price of the
Pennsylvania product to compete with
the Canadian lumbermen, and that the
cut that will come is sure to result in a
reduction of the wages paid the Pennsyl
I".. 11. m ini; the splendid Republican vic
tory iu Vermont, the result of the elec
tion iu Maine last week is well calculated
to produce a renewal of that confidence
for the future always felt wheu the Ke
puhli;an party, which makes a busiuess
of rumiinirtue government in the interests
of the people of the I'nited Slates, is in
power. The result, of the special election
In Pennsylvania last February, with the
result of the several other state elections
held after that, and the verdict of the peo
ple i:i Vermont and Maine, may well be
regarded as a renewed indication of the
wisdom of Abraham Lincoln, when hi
said: "You can fool some of the people ali
of the time, and all of the people some of
the time, but you cannot fool all of the
people all of the time."
A good number of lha people were
fooled in l!fcJ, it is true, but they don't
appear backward abnut ackuowlcdiintf it
as far as henrd from, and as soou as tliey
cau be heard from. And this indication
of the general desire to list back to the old
conditions aud put back the party that
was iu power before lP'.i- is ltouarf to pro
duce that confidence in tho future thnt is
so much needed to improve demoralized
trade and give employment at decent,
wages to the great army of American
workmea who have known such want iu
the past sixteen or eighteen months as
was not known in this country before.
Unquestionably such a verdict of the
people as comes from Vermont and
Maine will be repnrded by the manufac
turer as an indicatiou that there is to be
a return all around to the party of pro
tection to the home interests, and with
confidence in such a result we may well
expect a revival of prosperity such as
even a reasonable expectation of Itepuh
lican rule is bound to produce.
There is no danger or reason to fear that
Pennsylvania will be found a laggard in
the work of confidence producing when
her vote is counted at the end of this cam
paign, unless it be from the danger of
over confidence and the belief that no
work is ucdrd to make Pennsylvania's
verdict indicate the great desire her peo
ple have to get the government of the
country back into the bands of its friends.
Maine has furnished an additional rea
son for the work that is always necessary
to get out the full vote, from which Re
publicans bave nothing to fear. Pennsyl
vania ought to give at this time a greater
majority in proportion to her vote
than was given by the voters of Maine.
This is a big job to undertake, but Penn
sylvania is equal to it. aud there ought to
be a general effort in every part of the
state to help the work along and place
the Keystone state where she belongs,
