Tinct is its jimmies will not let it die Trio enemies of the government forced into life and their acts Ever since a Uve furnished the food on Wihib it has lived and on which it now thrives. Their acts have lion tile need of he party hence its rapid and vigor Ous growth. Thigh it Arld to Oil company is one \ t Bornost insolent monopolies that \ a i cursed tile United states. They a have monopolized whole counties t f be people s land and by special privileges control the outlet of one of our i latest industries. When Litsy undertake anything they generally accomplish it by fair Means or foul. Their latest Victory Over the people Bas been to have their monopoly exempted from payment of nearly 3,000,000 of taxes in Pennsylvania. The state treasurer and auditor general of Pennsylvania assessed them to this anon it but the Oil men appealed from one court to another and now the opinion of the supreme court favors the in a sort it to Oki As if the Standard Oil company need not go to Law at All. It carries everything with a High hand and its own word is Law. Titis unbridled Power of corporations is one of the greatest dangers menacing the welfare of the people. 1 it the monopolists than be stripped erf All or i least a Good part of their privileges by United 8cti6n at tie polls. Until this a Tom has been taken the Cor-pc��io6� will Rule. They cannot Beffi Stubl a baffled in any Otbo a Way. A correspondent to to Chicago in Tirol in spanking of he demo its says in my judgment i they follow the Lead of their Ous predecessors Jefferson Jackson and Lincoln. Hoy May have it Goon Nso of life. If Jackson the a by the eternal tha National Lii inks must go if with Jellerson the restore to the nation the Power of issuing All Money and with Liuch elevate labor to the control Oil in. It ducts they May survive and in Reivo the Coati device of tue people but if they ape their predecessors under to the monopolists the rope is i u existence that will strangle their Cut and thai Pelt Vron t pay Foi skin Tung Javi ii snip of Mcgregor no the railroads seem to realize the their Only Hope of maintaining their almost coir photo Mono Ioly of the Ner Chandise and produce business of the West lion in Kil lug off the Mississippi River compete lion. They have been for Man years in driving All the lumber into posts Buck into the i u j Ien so us to have lumber Huu Iii. Completely at their mercy. In Man. Ner towns notably at Mcgregor the railroads have sided All River pro i be shipping and but Little Werchau list finds its Way to the Mississippi. Sur they Are aiming to drive the larger cities of the River into ext ii Sive rail shipments. The latest in stances of this kind occurred at dual be the Illinois Central a recently advanced the rates on Grai three Coats a Bushel from All Point West of Dubuque to Chicago and absolute refusal to Lay Grutlin Over or unload. The reason Given for the outrage upon the Grain buyers of the Lvov City is that shippers in Cuba que Bavo been in the habit of taking advantage of the former rates to be Grain into Dubuque and then ship it to the Diamond to or other lines. L View of the of tit that the 1. A .c Cany the Grain to Chicago the com Pauy concluded that they would take Steps to prevent being discriminate against. This is ostensible Reaboi. But the real cause lies deeper. It r Well known to All who study tin transportation question that tin cheapness of delivery depends upon the Jimo unt of return freight so thu. If Diamond to cannot get Grain to carry on his line of River steamers from Dubuque he must Neches Sarij charge Mure for All other freight carried to Dubuque b Boreing the steam boat to travel empty on the return trip compels them to charge i Milch higher rate for All merchandise carried by them. The Railroad company compels Trio producer to pay u higher Rato of freight by 6 on Bushel and prevents its being shipped to in Iowa Market in order a compel the merchant and consumer to pay a higher Rato of freight on Ali merchandise received. Every Mer chant i Dubuque must pay the pen Alty for this move of Trio Railroad to kill River shipping. Every 1 receive i of merchandise must pay a much higher rate for All freight received by the River transportation com Panitt because they Aro debarred from haul ing Bur produce to Market by tin Railroad monopoly. Mcgregor which does not ship a Bushel of produce by the vast Wittor Way running at her feet bus hardly any Benefit from the Wator Competition. For Many years the railroads have been engaged killing off the River shipping. In part they Bavo succeeded by fairly competing for the traffic. But generally they Bavo destroyed the business of the River Jit fes by destroying legitimate Competition suet As is to basis of All other com orc this new Schetne which robs both ways making both producer and consumer pay u High Tariff is of Wei Chi the of Cople will resist Anc which tto Ftfe people a Ftp Tolo Raio. Complimented or the moderation the 1 have exhibited in to Day of their Success. The Wisest of them candidly admit that the result of to lab election is attributable Rathor to tin votes of republicans who Tiro Dis gushed with the domineering of their loaders than to the ballots of democrats and notwithstanding its present apparent Success All know thai the democratic fairly is and has Long been hopelessly divided on Many very important issues. The returns from thu Jolls testify with unerring accuracy that the Republican party is also now in a similar broken and disordered condition. It in not Likely that this disintegration of the two great parties will to arrested. The fact is both of them Are pulverized. They Aro internally broken up As thu whig Anil demo ratio parties were j Rev Iotis to in ise of the Republican party and tin election of president Lincoln. A Uio material for Trio erection of a now formation must be obtained Iron parties previously existing such Des Sica Tion is a necessary preliminary its Success.
