Defiance County Republican Express (Newspaper) - September 19, 1890, Defiance, Ohio Topics of the times. A Choice selection of interesting items. Ceram ones and criticisms it Asch upon Tho happenings of the Day historical and nows notes. German Workman Are the worst paid labourers in Europe. Of this worlds population it is estimated that 250,000,000 go entirely naked. Judge j. I. Smith of fort Worth is Worth $1,000,000. Once he walked from Kentucky to Texas because he did not have Money enough to pay his fare. The use of India rubber for erasing Pencil Marks was first suggested in or just prior to 1752 by an academician named Magellan a descendent of the great navigator. The Vatican Library at Home contains 50,000 printed books and 25,000 manuscripts. The manuscript form one of the most valuable collections in the world being mostly greek latin and orienta1. The san Francisco examiner says that the fashion of wearing wooden shoes is growing into favor in this country As Well us in England. By the Aid of machinery a really neat and comfortable wooden shoe can be made so stylish that no Young woman need be ashamed to Wear it on the Street. The worlds Stock of diamonds has increased enormously in the last fifteen years. In 187g the output of the african mines was about 1,500,000 carats last year it was Over 4,000,000, and the great a a Trust which controls All the principal mines assert that they have 10,000,100 carats a in sight a at the present time. A new York newspaper correspondent is the authority for the statement that Tho erstwhile conspicuous Nellie Bly Bas been retained by a new York publisher to write serials. The alleged salary would give a United states supreme court Justice More pocket Money than any one of them is probably laying by from his present stipend. Creosote has been successfully applied As a remedy for the potato disease in Scotland. Every Eye of the seed potato is touched with creosote by moans of a Small camels hair Bro la. The product of potatoes so treated is almost totally free from disease. Where the creosote is not applied to All the eyes of the seedling tile result is in trial disease. If too much is used the seed will not germinate. Our country has been invaded by a group of sixteen frenchmen members of the Alpine club of Paris who propose to ascend All Tho Mountain ranges of America. They will first tackle Canada. These gentlemen while they May look a Little store made and queer in their typical English tourists garb Are in reality men of science and their society has branches in All the capitals of the meanest Man on record has been discovered again. To lives in Arkansas City Kau. He brought suit against his Wile for Alimony alleging that she is a Strong Aud healthy woman and asked that she be compelled to support Birn. The courts have just decided i to ease Adverse to him. In its decision the supreme court says there is no Case in Tho Law books authorizing such a suit that the Domestic relations would have to be readjusted and an obligation cast upon Tho wife to support the husband before such an action could to maintained. Young women. An enterprising girl from the poorer classes of Appomattox or one of the adjoining counties sends her photograph to the soldiers Home at Hampton va., a Veteran responds and the knot is tied. No less than Twenty such marriages Are reported within a radius of five Miles of Hampton. There would be an element of Romance in this surrender of the old soldiers to the charms of Beauty if it were not for the purely business nature of the transaction. A Soldier with a pension is a Gold mine and his death which must take place soon in the course of nature leaves the Young widow in the enjoyment of his pension for the remaining years of her life. Large numbers of people emigrate from the government of Kovno to Brazil. Circulars Are being promulgated stating that the brazilian government offers great inducements to immigrant labourers whose age is not above 45 years and especially to married men. Hand craftsmen will find there factories to work at their respective trades at very Liberal salaries. Farmers will get land free and the necessary implements and Means to Start work at once upon arriving. Tho numerous emigration from Kovno of labourers who Are allured by these circulars is due to Tho fact that Tho factories of that District have greatly deteriorated of late and farming has become less profitable for want of middlemen to bring produce into Market. A daily paper of Moscow reporting these facts timidly As is a is this wholesale Deser Tion of a populous and prosperous government due to the stringent application of the Laws against the jews a an excellent feature of German mail service is its package delivery. Tho Gorman mail recently brought me ten pounds of cherries from Hanover Ami ten pounds of writing material from berlins All for Twenty four cents twelve cents on each package write a correspondent. And another service which i want to see More generally done by Uncle Sam Iii America is the daily Rural mail service such As Germany has. Though i am seven Miles from a railway a German official brings my mail twice daily English and German daily papers and so on. When our american country people Farmers and so on eau have free mail delivery daily at their own doer they will read the daily papers keep abreast of the prices current and Tho news and the Young people will be More contented because better informed. Then extend the Jack ago Post to the country districts and see How easy it would be to have Reading from circulating libraries and other conveniences from the City for a few Ponce. Nothing is More needed by american Farmers than bettor mail facilities. Alliance Farmers there is a negro living in Seriven county ga., whose Home is a huge log. This a Quot a is Twenty feet Long and five feet in diameter. It is divided into three apartments one of which is occupied by the proprietor s three hogs. The negro occupies another and the third is tilled with Hunting and fishing apparatus. The negro makes his livelihood by Hunting and fishing. His clothes Are of skins of wild beasts and he lives alone by himself. His two dogs Are the fiercest to be found anywhere. He procures his ammunition by bartering game with the employees als lard the us Ali liver boats and the passengers. Their relation with Greenback Cranks. Tho fist Woney people a to swooped blown upon the Al Tuico conventions All Over the country Sud ind Ted on Iii up a min of their old doctrines simply warmed Over. Chicago at the meeting of t he Farmers National Congress at Council Bluffs last week a platform was adopted according to which the following things Are. To lie a demanded of Congress they demand the unlimited coinage of Silver the Athol Loloa of the National banking Laws tile refusal of our National government to extend the Charters of National Banks now in existence and the issuance of full Legal tender Treasury notes in lieu of National Bank notes in sufficient volume to meet the business demands of the country and the constantly increasing demand of Trade. These a a demands Are to be found in the platform of every Farmers Alliance which has held a state or county convention. They prove that Tho longhaired wild voiced Greenback Flat Cranks Odio were disturbing the peace of the country some years ago but who for a while Back had no Chance to air their views have swooped Down on Tho Farmers have taken advantage of their ignorance of political Economy and have become their financial guides Blind leaders of the Blind bound to fall in the ditch together. So the National Banks must go. Why because they Issue notes. Tho amount of their circulation is diminishing steadily and it will soon disappear if they Are left alone and other forms of currency will take its place. A Bill is before Congress authorizing tile National Banks to reduce their circulation to a Small sum leaving Only enough to retain their characters. Very few of the Banks desire to have circulating notes As there is no longer any profit in them. Why then do the alliances want to destroy those solvent and useful institutions is it because the Farmers have lost by these Banks not by their notes certainly for nobody has Ever lost a Dollar in that Way. Is it because they have lost Money deposited in them Tho percentage of failures of such Banks a been Small and the loss of depositors smaller still. No other Bank system was Ever so Safe and secure. Nor do Farmers As a class put t heir Money Iii such institutions. They Are More Apt to place it in the Little local concerns which an smashing and sticking their Farmer depositors All the time. Is it because the business relations Between the National Banks and tile Farmers have been unpleasant not at All. They have had no quarrel. Yet the Alliance people want Tiu so Banks abolished. Can there be any other reason for it than a wish to Hurt those merchants and manufacturers whom these institutions accommodate and who do not comp Latu of them if the alliances have their Way and damage Ca uselessly their City neighbors by knocking out the National Banks what will they put Iii their place will they allow tile commercial my business classes to be consulted or will the Alliance Farmers regulate the bus Ness of those classes to suit themselves Why they restore the bad old state Bank systems with their Rotten Ticie Tun tin currency and their Lack of Security for depositors or note holders or must every Man be ids own banker and keep his Money in a Crock buried in tile Garden or in a stocking shoved up Tho Chimney then All tile Alliance resolutions de i coinage of Silver and More of greenbacks order to inflate the currency to a big degree. Here again is where the Crank have got in their work on the Valliant people. What would happen actually if this prayer of the agriculturist Wert granted anti tile currency were to by swelled up with Silver anti paper till i equalled the notions of the business needs of the country a Tho prices of All manufactured articles where there was no great surplus made would Rise. Tile clothing leather Wear household furniture the farm implements plows reapers mowers wagons Iron utensils glassware etc., bought by the Man on the farm would Cost him much More. The inflation of tile currency would inflate the Price of ail City made goods and wares. Lint with the products of the soil it would be otherwise. The foreign prices would still Rule their Selling value. Wheat Corn Oats floor pork beef butter lard. Cheese a in Short All surpluses for which this country could not furnish a Home Market would continue Low in Price no higher than the foreign Market some of the democratic senators have been getting a Little Tariff information at enormous Public expense. Or. Mcpherson has Learned a Little for example. On Friday last he made an Able argument on tile Wool question based on the fact that in 18 57 there Ware 42,goo,Ogo sheep in the United states and Only 42,599,079 in 1889. It was with considerable difficulty that lie could be convinced that lie was 18,000,000 out of Tho Way in ids figures but he was finally obliged to admit Bis error though it did destroy his argument. This kind of education has been going on in the Senate every Day. But it is expensive business for the Public. Otherwise Hie democrats have gone Over exactly the same ground they covered at the last session. Or. Vest and or. Mcpherson made the same arguments and largely word for word on the Salt question last week that they made at the last session and or. Carlisle went Over tile name ground on the Wool question.

King kalakaua., the King of the hand with islands has made an immense amount of Money by borrowing from other people. This is an easy Way to make Money but the business is Apt to run Down on a Many a hands As he grows old. Kalakaua finds it harder to borrow than he formerly did for he Bas never been known to pay a Bill a be says he does no to have the Money to j be sure he borrows of one Man to pay j another but he unfortunately spends j the Money before he gets to the other mum Kalakaua has had All his Leal authority taken away from him and is now Only nominally King mid possesses no real Sovereign Power.

The next Day the bad mail came into Bis friends office and throwing a Little half worn out Book on the desk said a there she is old Man but i was a Little wrong about its a i should say so a a Aid the other. A How does it happen that this Little Book is so badly worn when you because the Farmer can dispose of those surpluses abroad Only and the prices he gets for them regulated As they Are by in petition with the world determine the Prii i of All tile crop lie Sells at Home. Thus Hie inflation of tile currency will not Benefit ids products whose Price is lived beyond Tho Ocean and outside the sphere of inflation but will Render the Cost of the goods lie buys much higher tint before. Thus currency inflation would damage every Western Farmer. Lie Nee it is seen that if tin inflation of Silver and greenbacks were made the Granger would not Benefit thereby. He would get no More for his products while lie would have to pay dearer on account of Hie inflation for All tie things lie got in Exchange for ids Tuff. The measure which lie thin. Would be the making of him would Cut by Throat while the City people would not suffer from it for they would get More farm articles in Exchange for their wares. The manufacturer would be shelter ii from evil effects for As a general tiling lie has not used Tim full measure of ids Tariff Protection Lins sold goods below Tariff Price but with an inflation of tile currency he would take advantage it every Inch of that Tariff Wall and charge up to the top of it. What is tile matter of the Alliance people that they cannot use their own common sense and their own reasoning Powers wily do they pick out As their guides demagogue Jack lawyers on tile one hand Aud Long haired Fiat Cranks on the other who Are leading them straight to tin deepest Depths of Folly if they Brush away these bats and screech owls that Are in Ink about them and do their own thinking they May make blunders All men do but they will not be guilty of this supreme and howling Folly of demanding that Congress do something tile necessary effect of which would be to make their condition far worse than it is now Republican Farmers advice. Alexandria s. Do a Herald Farmers i wish to give you a Little Square talk about tile Republican party. If you Are an Independent done to shrug your shoulders and go through this at a ate which would kick dust into the eyes of a Comet. Now i wish to state what you have before been told Many times i that banners have taken a hand in polities. Not Hie Fine italian hand of the banker or contractor but the Strong steady hand of right. Tile Alliance is instituted in Twenty five states and thirty states have Granges of patrons of husbandry. In the Southern states the Alliance is very Strong and is striving to control state and congressional offices. In Western states there Are also indications that they desirous of political control and dictation. Why is this so they have in very Many respects a just cause for complaint. In the political makeup of tickets they have been neglected or fooled their interests have not been so keenly looked after As have the interests of Oulu r classes. Consequently you seek redress in strictly class politics. The Rock on which Farmers movements have always split is tin Strong partisan element. In their frenzy for Justice they allow men to Lead them who seek Only for self aggrandize ment or Are but the tools of monopolies an organized gang of robbers whose deeds would bring the Blush of shame to the Cheek of a Missouri train wrecker. A Man broken and discouraged by hard work continual crop failures the extortionate demands of the usurer when forced by dire necessity to apply to him for Money is no equal match for tin Subtile mind of tile villian Avaio socks leadership or control of the Farmers movements. Beware of the partisan feeling beware of the partisan leaders. They can nearly always be bought and sold. The hand of Tho Farmer is hardened by toil and his brow furrowed by wrong and sorrow. It is no wonder they seek redress by Means of an Independent party. How Many years did the Republican party serve faithfully and Well it Lias Brck Slid Iii the past few years did you always do right but the Noble spirit which caused its birth has again awakened and no Man be he Rich or poor shall say my party Lias forsaken me and i suffer. It is a Well known fact that All legislation is a Compromise. In the history of our country you an count on your fingers the Bills Winch have been passed just As they were introduced. Thus the Farmer nor any Oiler member of this great National family eau or should expect strict cuss legislation. Class legislation Conte ins a deadly Poison in that Laws which entirely favor one certain class Are an Clement detrimental to some other. All of these branches or classes Havo their representatives in Congress. These representatives As is natural and right strive for tile better Mentor their constituents and they Are expected to doctor a Bill until its objectionable features arc eliminated. However tile Farmers have of late been getting the worst of it. They have had no representatives or worse still those they did have wore bought by Wall Street or had no Backbone. Therefore these banners a movements Are no Surprise. Knowing that tile Farmer needs legislation favourable to them yet i differ from the independents in thinking a third party is necessary. Look at the record made by a Republican Congress this year and then say whether or not the grand old party is endeavouring to fulfil its pledges. The admit ratio customs Hill has been passed by both branches and has become ? a Law. Trust and Wyoming have been added to tile sisterhood of states. The passage of the dependent pension Bill fulfils the Promise made to tin veterans. The Silver Bill Bas been passed and is Tho solution of one of Lim most difficult problems the party has had to Deal with. The More that measure is scrutinized tin clearer it is that it was the Wisest possible solution under All circumstance s. The Senate Lias passed the tonnage Bounty Bill am the postal subsidy Bill. The House the Federal election Bill. Is this not a record for seven Mouths and does it iu�1 loom up giant like in comparison to the record of other congresses is it not an indication that the Republican party is striving to do right and better the condition of All classes of Mankind we you desert it now when it most need your assistance to keep Iii tile straight and narrow Way never. $39 or Jon which makes the duty on manufactured linens less than on Silks. Ririe Mckinley Bill proposes to rectify this unjust discrimination in favor of one article of textile manufacture against the other. Under the proposed duty adjustment on liners we have the Assurance from practical Irish manufacturers that they will no longer be Able to Supply our wants unless they transplant their business to this Side of the water and it is no secret that some of them have in Here for some time with the View of negotiating for Good Sites on which to erect Linen Mills tin moment the Mckinley Bill is passed it is important for them to secure sights convenient to where the flax grows and no doubt Minneapolis minn., a 111 be chosen As the favored spot for the first Linen Mill that will be erected under the new regime. But if ave Are to import flax to push business at once on a Large scale it is not unlikely that Mills will be erected within ten or fifteen Miles of new York on the Jersey coast or wherever Good soft Avator can be obtained adapted to Retting the flax. This Retting process and cutting system Haa e been two great stumbling blocks hitherto toward Tho establishment of the Linen Industry Here and if we Are rightly informed modern science has discovered a Way of Retting flax More expeditiously without Iii any Way injuring the fib Erand with greater Economy than is re required by the old process and if it is found to work Well in practice then to shall have made a Long stride Forward. Objections have often been raised against our hot Summers and cold a inters As impediments to the successful growth of flax and of gathering it at an opportune season but Russia is a Groat flax growing country and there Iii Tho same late tilde heat and cold prevail As intensely As in the United states. It takes 20,000 looms to produce the linens that Are at present consumed Iii the United states and yet there Are Only 400, or at Best 500, looms actually Avo King or making goods of this class in Ireland now. If this Trade could be kept at Homo it Avold employ Between 30,000 and 40,000 people and be a source of great wealth to our country. The efforts a of Tho Freo Trade missionaries has a lately been especially directed among the Farmers of the Northwest and it is confidently claimed that tie people of the Avest Tiro against a Tariff which they regard As almost wholly for the Benefit of the East. But by this showing it May be seen that the West will be Tho great beneficiary of an increased duty on linens. This is Tho flax groaning country and it is Here that tile great Linen Mills of America will to built. Tue state of Ohio. Events / id incidents thai have Lai Ely occurred. An interesting summary of the More important doings of our neighbors wed dings and deaths crimes casualties and general nows notes. Not a fair shake. Salt Lake Tribune the pm i vier Jon Mal prints the Fol leaving if Mexico were to suddenly Annex itself to the United states. Senator tellers 50,000 miners would starve it is Plain that Avo must never let Mexico become a part of Tho United states. Oil. No we do not want any part of Mexico annexed but if it worn to be to could manage it. There would be some More land to cultivate some More mines to open some great cities to be built. A contingent of our own miners would go there establish minors unions compel mexicans to work avi111 pantaloons on and to Send their children to school. There would not any of the Money come Here. It would All be needed there for improvements. The thrill of a now life would pass through that country and what was done in California by the argonauts would be repeated Tipiere.

Middletown canal . In accordance with Tho request of the state canal commission attorney general Watson has Given an opinion As to the Validity of the states title to disputed land in the Village of Middletown Butler county. Tho tract to which the Stato lays claim contains eleven lots valued at $1,500 each and on most of the lots dwellings have been erected which Range in value from $1,500 to $4,000 each. On december 3, 1s40, j. S. And n. B. Inglehart deeded tile land to Tho state. In june of that year the Ingle arts mortgaged Tho premises but this mortgage was not left for record until july 8, 1841. Tho state had no knowledge of the existence of the mortgage. Nine years afterwards the Ingle Harts failed Tho mortgage was foreclosed without the state being made a party to the snit and the property was sold by a master commissioner. On this the attorney general holds Tho state avas an innocent purchaser and that its title remains Good. Most of Tho lots Are Iii the heart of Tho \ Village and the attorney general a opinion Avill doubtless be of considerable interest to those who have improved tile property.

J the claims of the free traders of America Are generally so astounding in their Assurance and effrontery us to have a paralysing effect ii Kin detailed assertion of the truth it is Tho Airn and design of Cobden club disciples in America to take an obvious fact and by Cool and bold statement to the contrary attempt to Blind Tho Public. Tho design of the protective system of America is to protect the people in their endeavours to build up manufactures and to maintain the handsome wages which Are paid american workmen. The protein be a Stem honestly and judiciously applied is the greatest Boon to workingmen found Iii the volumes of economic history. The aim of the Cobden club free Trade democrats is to make the opposite appear. In the bitter discussion of various items in the Mckinley Tariff Bill for instance the matter of duties on linens has been taken up by democrats with the Cool assertion that an increase of such duty is merely for the Benefit of monopolist manufacturers and of us Rich who Are a clothed in purple and Fine Linen. The Brazen arid designing falsity of Liis position May be shown in a Hundred different ways but in none better than by u review of a communication to a recent number of the or ii go this chronicle signed a Fla Xian a in which it is shown that the Cost of labor in Tho Linen Trade of Ireland is about one third of the whole Cost of production. Hence it needs from 25 to 35 per cent above the present protective duty on raw material Herr to enable us to equalize the wages Between factory operatives in Ireland and Iii this country. A duty of $30 per ton on flax is equal to about 25 per cent duty on linens but As proposed Iii Tho Bill before Congress of per cent and 05 per cent is placed on manufactured linens Iii which Case we would be Able to compete successfully with imported linens. At present raw silk is admitted free of duty with 50 per cent. On manufactured Silks while tax pays a duty of is no sentiment about this mexican business. It is one of pure business. Tho men of Kansas and Texas affect to feel very badly that the Laws of the United states prevent them from supplying 50,000 miners in Mexico. Only there Are two fatal defects in their program. In the first place they could not Supply them if there was no Tariff on Lead. In Tho second place for every Dollar they sent there they would lose $10 from the West. Tho Man who would turn out his own son from work in order to hire a chinaman who Avold work for one third the son s wages would be called a Brut. The same principle governs a this mexican Ore business. A nation ought to be like a family it ought to discriminate Iii favor of its own people. When it does not it will get left. It will lose caste and it will lose Money. The men of the West have built up a Gratin tie Mon who Logrande can get i Lead and pay Tho Tariff As cheaply As the f men who have smelters in Tho great j Basin. There is no particular reason i Why the government should give those few smelters the sum of $30 per ton on All Ore they can obtain from Mexico. It is not a fair shake to tile rest of the United states. It is not at All fair to Tho men of the West. Tho our scr Jour Uil thinks it is honest in its advocacy of free mexican ores. Its Only trouble is t hut it is ignorant Aud docs not understand the question it essays to discuss. _ the proprietor of a Large Canning factory in new York when questioned As to the increased Cost which the new duty on tin plate would put upon cans explained As follows a you see the Tariff amounts to but Little. On Small cans it would make a difference of one Aud one fourth cents per dozen. On very Large cans running from ten to Twenty pounds tin difference would be live cents a dozen so it seems that Hie consumer could not fairly be charged on canned goods More than from a Little less than one Mill to one third of a cent per can by a retailer to cover the entire can Cost of this a robber tax on tin. A taking the average size of All cans a continued Titis Packer a the increased Cost under Hie Mckinley Bill will be about two and one fourth cents per one of the letter carriers in Franklin. Ba., says that the idea of having their mail delivered is such a Novelty to some of tile people along his route that although they probably do not get a letter in a Mouth in actual correspondence they answer newspaper advertisements Aud devise various other plans for the purpose of receiving something at every sen i of their inconsistency and variance on other Points Haven to you observed that the democratic platforms this year Are particularly vehement arid altogether unanimous in their abuse of the Republican party my. Blaise s reciprocity plans arc no new discovery neither has Ttye Secretary of state been converted to a new theory. Reciprocity is the result of natural evolution. It is in direct line with tin True Protection plan. Under the Republican management of Secretary Xvi Dom the government Dot posits in National Banks have been reduced from $40,, to less than $20,000,000, and Bonds bought with Tho Money. _ when hard times come.
