Wool Hubb Ying on dispatches from Boston say that steam tugs have been sent Down the Bay to help get some vessels into port before the new Law begins. These ships being loaded with South american Wool. The largest importations of tobacco Ever known have also been hurrying in for weeks past. Getting in out of the cold. The vast increase of foreign goods that have been maned into this country before the bars were put up to protect Farmers and others is showed the figures of customs duties turned into the Treasury of Uncle Sam. The Washington evening paper of to Day october 6tb shows that the government receipts from duties to Day were $2,692,579, and it has been running into big figures Ever since it became certain a new Tariff Bill was to passed. The above figures Are four or five times the daily average for a year past a Boston item says a the duties on merchandise up in Bond dining september 1889. Were $210,145.33. Against $821,-993.99, the same month this year. Under the new Law a Large amount of these foreign products will to made in our own factories and grow an or own farms. Not injure them. Una Ess the Farmer the manufacturer or the d y labor r Sells More than he buys he is on the Road to Bank a pacy. Every Farmer and every Labouring Man knows that he never Pospese i so Well As immediately after the War when High prices prevailed for everything. All producers of wealth Are mired High prices. Those who live off of Money like Bankers and High salaried officials Are interested in Low prices. So under this Tariff Bill that gives Farmers a a Protection along with other folks even if he does pay a Little More Tor irs suit of clothes or other supplies he feels Well Able to do it because he has to pen s More a a Protection on his potatoes 25 c its a Bushel on his apples 30 cents on Ralty 5 cents on eggs better Price for h e Wool and so on through the Long list of Agricula ural products now a protected.

And that includes foreign farm products Aswell As the others. Our imports of farm products from other counties last year was 267 millions of dollars. All that should produced on our farms. To e Bible says that a the who does not provide for his fam is worse than an and so Uncle Sam has now arranged to a a protect Quot and provide for All his family the Farmer included thinks to the Good work of Farmers i Hemsell s in asking for several years that the farm protected As Well As the m my factory. Higher prices. But we hear some Bay and we note some papers Are saying it also.

Read the truth As follows for Over two weeks the democratic congressional committee working through the Bee has been engaged in working up a sensational and malicious Roorback against col. H. Brigham with the intention of defeating him if possible for Congress. The article appeared in last saturday evenings paper and is a tissue of falsehoods from beginning to end As is proven the statements made in affidavits following. Thousands of copies of the Bee have been circulated through the Defiance Post office and carriers sent out from the City in the shape of Campaign speakers in buggy and rail. The Story As was written the emissary of the Bee was headed a a Black Barley Racket Brigham in a new role the master of the state Grange sold seed Barley to a swindling Bohemian Oats company in his town. Hog Barley imported from Canada and raised on Brigham a farm sold at a Price and Farmers swindled. The same Brigham is a candidate for following these sensational Heads was the Roorback. The tool of the ring which conducts the candidacy of or. Donovan Calls particular attention to the fact that cob Brigham is a candidate for Congress and then says the Bee has been on the Wing the past week and has obtained facts that present or. Brigham As haying sold at in extravagant Price a worthless Quality of Black Barley to a notorious seed company that the entire crop of seed was r led on Brigham a farm that even the tailings w Ere screened and Slid and hat no further crop w s raised after the one swindling crop was disposed of. The name of j. H. Brigham was used in the printed circulars of tie swindling company and agents verbally used Bis Nan a coupled with the office of Trust which he occupies As master of the Ohio slate Grange to dispose of their worthless Barley. The Barley at the Oug de was not Worth 60 cents a Bushel. Or. Rerigh in sold it for More than $2. That extravagant Price would convince a practical Farmer that there a was a Nigger in the woodpile Quot Sora where and As m to r of the or nge he should have exposed the whole swindle. The Mich Gan and great Western Bend company to whom he sold the Barley disposed of the crop at $15 a Bushel. It was a repetition of the Bohemian oits Racket. The history of the Michigan Aud great Western seed company at Delta follows an a an affidavit purporting to one Jesse Morningstar and used the seed company to sell 1 he Grain. This in an Morningstar Ursa Nanton a farm owned col. Brigham. This affidavit was sworn to Bim in 1885, on the 28th of december. Out of h s own Mouth he is condemned As a liar. This affidavit rays i Jesse Morningstar who resides pm the farm of j. H. Brigham in said township do make the following statement in the Spring of the yer a d. 1882. I sowed about two quarts of this re that had been prop gated from some Heads that my son Hart found growing Amon some common Barley and obtained the first Harvest three bushels which lag in sowed in 1883 upon the same farm finding it a great yielded and thinking the looks of this Grain teat it would make Good flour i took some of the Grain to the Wauseon Mill and had it ground. It made a Good flour. Side Side with this in the same article is an interview the be3 reporter m which mor Pingyar himself. He Santa a while in Canada in the yer 1884, and while i was visiting my brother in Law near Seaforth ont., i noticed a variety of Barley that was being raised there the Farmers which was different to any i he Ever seen in this country. It was a Black and bullets variety and i bought 30 j bushels of it and brought it Back to Fulton county with me it twice id alien fid food for bogs Ana was used principally for this purpose in Ontario not being recognised As suitable for malting purposes. Further evidence is not needed. Or. Morningstar says inf fits 1885 affidavit that got the Barley out of his Beld. In his 1890 statement that he raised it in Canada. But he does no to Stop there. In his statement made last Weic he says col. Frigham fun a it for 0 a Busher toe to. Do w. Company. On october of 1890. Or. Morningstar made an affidavit that the crop was sold for $2.25. Samuel Morningstar makes a sworn statement that the Barley was obtained in Canada. The father swears in 1885 that this son found it in a Field. Who is the liar which of these is True ? Ether Morningstar lied it h1�on did. A Jehef the to work s item it in 1885, used tie seed comp Turiy was a or the statement of father and Bong in 1�90, did not or. Morningstar make this affidavit to the said company because he was interested in it if the character of a wine son the stand must taken into consideration a Man convicted of perjury cannot a very Good witness. Or. Morningstar says in his off Divit that he sent some of the l to the m so g. W. Seed company cob Brigham a and after they Siw it they wished to buy it Ned j have sold All of five entire crop and All \ bad to said company.1 he says in h s statement that cob Bra go Ftp sold it the first affidavit was made in 1885, the last in 1890, when col. Brigham is a candidate for Congress and or mornings or a tool of the Donovan campaigners cob Brigham has made so Active and Earnest a Canvas in Bis District that the Donovan managers have taken thir desperate and despicable measure to counteract Thorning Toije. The lie is crushed in the affidavits which is Bess publishes to Day. Cob Brigham says of the miserable Story a my attention has been called to an article in the Toledo Bee of ooh 25, 1890, under the caption a Black Barley Racket Brigham in a new role c. I have carefully read the entire article in which it is sought to implicate me in some of the of fictions of the feed company mention is. De in the article in question and in reference thereto have to s to s in i never bad any business relations of any kind with the so called Michigan so great Western company. When that Barley was sold i did not know there was such a company. I never sold and never offered to sell to that company or to any company any Barley Black or otherwise. I never exhibited any Sample of any Gra n of any kind to said company. Jessie Morningstar mentioned in the Bee and whose affix a t is in the article was a tenant on my farm in Clinton township Fulton county. A the raised and marketed the Gram produced on that farm and always accounted to me for my shale of the proceeds. He rai8 d some Barley on that farm and sold the8ametoone Charles Worden a perhaps w. H. Gaultt. I bad nothing in any Way to do with the transaction except to receive Ray rare of the Price and consideration of the Barley. I never knew anything about the Michigan Aud great Western seed company. To far As the Price of the Barley is concerned i am informed that the Bame kind of Grain was quoted in the Market about the same time for As much if not More per Bushel that what or. Morningstar got for the Barley sold to Worden and Gavitt. I never had any knowledge of what the Barley was bought for or what it would used it is a mistake that any note was Given to Morningstar or any one for the Barley or any part of it and i expressly deny the statement imputed to Morningstar that i advised him to hold on to the Barley for a few Days or that i notified him that i had sold the entire crop to the Michigan and great Western seed Kcf Litany mid directed the delivery of the Barley at Delta. I expressly deny and denounce As utter y false the statement attributed to Morningstar that i directed or requested that the notes to made payable to Morningstar or stated that the said seed company or any other company was to have the exclusive right to raise it or that lever said anything whatever to Morningstar a bout the company a being a swindling concern and that he should say nothing about the matter and keep Stilb a utne entire article so far As it seeks to implicate me in any of the transactions mentioned in it is maliciously false from the commencement to the close of it that the Barley was never sold to the Misc g.
