A Chicago mail Grover Cleveland untiring vigilance courage and firmness. Senator John James Ingalls who is not Friendly to the president has expressed the opinion that . Cleveland is More phenomenal than Napoleon. The vitriolic senator from Kansas did not mean to be complimentary. But he was so in spite himself. For those qualities the great French Soldier and Law giver in which . Cleveland resembled were Good qualities. Grover Cleveland possesses much the keenness vision the untiring vigilance the courage and firmness and not a Little the audacity in great things that made Napoleon Bonaparte the greatest Soldier in history. As a Power in the world s affairs there was no accounting for Napoleon and there is no accounting for Grover Cleveland. Both will Tako places in history among Phenomena. Both Rose suddenly from obscurity and when so elevated Toth displayed remarkable Powers leadership. It is hard to estimate Public men with accuracy during their lifetime but it is Safe to say that Grover Cleveland will take rank As one the most remarkable men the United states has produced. In 1880 the country had never even heard the name the Man whom four years later it elected to the highest position in the world. Called to Tho head the nation without the slightest experience in National politics never it is said having set foot in the capital country until he went there for inauguration he at once mastered Tho multifarious affairs the government with a thoroughness and detail which perhaps no president before Ever Pinto equated. It was thus that Napoleon mastered the affairs the army and then the affairs France. Not Only this but president Cleveland at once displayed a Large Broad minded comprehensive grasp the great questions the time. saw the Way the country should go and with a cautious yet Resolute hand he turned it in that direction. First assuring himself that he was right he has not failed in Tho Quality courage which Napoleon had and which so few political leaders our times possess a the courage to a go the election 1884, and Tho resulting administration Grover Cleveland have made the issues Tho War Tho country has been moved ahead Twenty years in Tho March Progress and is to Day measurably nearer a settlement the great questions that Are agitating the people than it was even one year ago. And the president in serving Well country has in the Best and highest sense served Well party. The democratic party is a bolder broader and better party for leadership. It is a fortunate thing for the country that this Many a leadership is not Only not seriously questioned but has the unanimous and enthusiastic support party.

The new South is simply the old South with the Heel tyranny removed from her neck. It is the old South recovering from Tho waste and desolation War. It is not the infusion new blood and brains from the North but the expulsion the Northern carpet Bagger and the placing intelligence and honesty at the top instead ignorance and debauchery protected by bayonets. A Nashville Democrat. Reforms Are accompanied in the United states by the movement the masses the people. The leaders and wire pullers care Only for spoils the people the contrary care Only for such policies As make for the general advantage. Tho wire pullers Are afraid to touch Tariff Reform for fear they May Burn their fingers but the voters and tax payers demand it and they will have it. They know the time is Ripe for record. There Are two Republican parties in Virginia one led by Billy a hone and the other by sex Congress Man John s. Wise.

Yet he does not scruple to arraign Reid As a Republican a a suspect for supporting with Mahone himself the democratic candidate for president in 1872. It is a very common thing in politics for the pot and Kettle to scorn each others blackness a St Louis Dost dispatch Toiv tiie War Tarril a a protects the agricultural class. The Farmer is told that the Tariff protects by bringing foreign labourers Over Here to work in our protected mines and factories thus increasing the Home consumption farm produce and creating a better Home Market for it but in spite the vast increase our population by immigration in the last ten years the Farmer i3 painfully conscious the fact that he is getting re less for beef less for pork and less for Grain than he got ten years ago. While unmarketable surplus is increasing every year the Tariff forces to out reduced income More for transportation and More for All the necessaries he has to buy. It forces to buy in a monopoly Market and sell in a free Trade Market in Competition with the pauper labor produce India and Russia. It forces to furnish the great bulk our exports to Bear the whole Burden our foreign Trade to the Cost its transportation both ways to foreign ship owners. It Aims to increase that Cost by shutting out importations so that our exports will have to Tho Cost the ship voyage both ways. In addition to All this whenever foreign governments begin to retaliate by placing protective duties what we sell to them it is the Farmers produce that suffers again because there is nothing else which they can retaliate. Enormous import duties arc paid All the flour meat and live Stock we Send to the West indies. France and Germany Levy import duties to protect their Farmers from ruinous Competition with american bread stuff a pork and Bacon and now our Consul at Stockholm writes that the swedish parliament has decided to impose a duty 5.4 cents per kilogram pork and 6.75 cents Bacon. Thus does the Farmer have to Bear the Brunt our Trade obstruction policy both As to its direct and indirect effects. Free Trade England the Beto noir our protectionist orators is Tho Only foreign government that gives a show. She buys our Cotton Grain and meat carries our produce and finds her profit in a vast foreign Trade which our Tariff and navigation Laws have Given her almost a monopoly. Our War Tariff period has been the period England a greatest Trade expansion and greatest increase in wealth. Facts like these arc so apparent that the Farmers the Northwest will no longer blindly follow the Lead the millionaire monopolists and Trust Barons the East in their support the War Tariff. The demand for revision can no longer be howled Down by the cry that any reduction duties which average forty seven per cent Means a free Trade and Tho prostration All our industries.

Bloody shot John. The ludicrous inconsistency Ohio s favorite Republican son. There ought always to be an Appeal open from the John Sherman engaged in a frantic Pursuit the presidency to the John Sherman a vexed by Tho buzzing the presidential Bee in Bonnet. The a favorite Sony Ohio for whom that state exhibits such ardent and uncontrollable affection every four years has always a Cool and often a Clear head and is at times Happy in showing the Absurdity unmeaning and misleading epithets and Campaign cries. Thus in 1867, when advocating a reduction Tho Tariff congressman Sherman said it was a simply an Absurdity to talk about a free Trade Tariff and to talk about a protective Tariff is unnecessary because the wit Man could not possibly Frame a Tariff that would produce $140,000,000 in Gold without amply protecting our Domestic a year later Tho same Sherman found it necessary again to rebuke the reckless and demagogic howl a a free Trade when nothing was under consideration except a moderate reduction a High Tariff. He said in considering so complicate in a subject As a Tariff nothing can be More deceptive than Tho application such general phrases As a a protective Tariff a a a Revenue Tariff a a a free Trado Tariff a every Law imposing a duty imported goods is necessarily a restraint Trade. It imposes a Burden upon the Purchase and Sale imported goods and tends to prevent every importation. The expression a a free Trade Tariff a involves an Absurdity. Certainly. But if the term a a free Trade Tariff was an Absurdity in 1868 Sherman a recent Sally in which he hurled the epithet a free Trade at Tho authors a scheme to reduce the Tariff front 47 to an average 36 per it nt., should have been greeted with roars laughter if a 36 per cent Tariff is not highly protective what is it it is higher than the Clay Tariff 1842. We have Sherman sword for it that it is 36 per cent above any tiling that can possibly he styled a free moreover lie declared that the wit Man could not Frame a Tariff that a would produce 140 millions Revenue without amply protecting Domestic Industry a and yet the proposed 36 per cent Tariff which will yield 163 millions he pronounces a a a free Trade such a performance As this would seem to support the claim John Sherman a latest biographer to the effect that the senator is a Many sided Man and holds doctrines acceptable to voters every party condition class Ultra protectionists and Revenue reformers.
