DUtreNnlns Condition*. Account** reach here of very serious distress among some of the farmers in the state, nnd in some districts they are reported to l>e in something like despair, A geutleinau who has just come in from a trip through the Oeuessee valley reports a condition of things in that once flourishing rural region which is surprising and distressing. He says that to cap the climax the apple crop, upon which the Ueiu'Ksee farmers have depended to put] them through, is this year un absolute failure, so that the prospect for the winter is dreary ivnd desperate enough. Borne of the farmers have been selling their farms for ub little as f�B an acre, when a few years ago they would have Tefuanjl >150. ' ---- A CONGRESSMAN'* VIEWS, were heavily mortgaged, ami that where farms were sold under mortgage they did not bring one-third, and in smiu* instances not one-fourth, of their value fl few years ego.  In many other instances the farm was actually not worth the mortgage; the mortgagee had to take the farm for the money he had advanced on it. "This condition of the fanner.*1 said Mr. Springer, "has naturally aroused him to the serious contemplation vf his desperate situation. He is looking for relief, and he welcomes any discussion of the situation which may enlighten him as to tho cause of au effect which ia ruining him. In my debate* with Mr. tlorr 1 endeavored to elucidate this cause, and 1 think that 1 Ruccecdcd. The cause of agricultural depression in the Uuitcd States is that the farmers produce more than can be used at home. This surplus must be sold abroad. The price nt which the surplus is sold abroad fixes the price of the home product. The fanner sells at the price hxed in New York, less tho cast of carrying the product to New York and leas the commissions, "Tho Now York market is fixed by the Liverpool market, which is the cheapest free trade market in the world. There the products of the American farmer come into competition with the products of all the world, including the products of the panper labor of Europe. But when the farmer buys he has to buy here in the dearest market of the? world If the Farmer should take hin products abroad and sell them, and should buy in foreign markets the goods he needs, in bringing Ins purchases home he would have to pa}* on an average sf-IO tariff on every hundred dollars' worth of goods Ue bought abroad. This reduces the purchasing power of tho products of hitf Farm one-half. "If the farmer Uikea the other course open to him. that of approaching the American manufacturer, who is protected, he findfi this manufacturer charging the foreign price with the tariff added. Thus it will be seen that either civae the purchasing power of American farm products is reduced nne-half by the tariff. This condition gradually wearing out the farmer. After twenty-live years of protective tariff, sustained chiefly by the suffrage of American farmers, the fanner finds his situation move desperate than ever It is no comfort to him to know that a few favored individuals have accumulated fortunes of from $00,000,000 to $50,000.-000 under n protective tariff. 'None of this vast wealth has come to him, and lie finds himself growing poorer and poorer every year. The farmers should be permitted to purchase in the same market in which they are compelled to sell. Otherwise the farms of this country will soon pass into the bunds of capitalists, nnd be consolidated into baronial estates, private parks or other vast tracts controlled by individuals. Then the farmers will be compel led to emigrate to the uncultivated lands of the far went or seek employment in the factories of the great cities, or to wander homeless in the streets." - Washington Special in St. Louis liupnblic. 19 and 21 East Sherman Street, DOES A GENERAL TO B PRINTING Book Making -A�D- Book iusmess. specialties m ii book muftii.
