The "Gee Hing" is a Chinese society which exists for the sole purpose of overthrowing the present emperor and dynasty and is being recruited in Chicago. Gee Whizz ! Dr. Nichols, the populist candidate for governor, is for a two-cent fare on all railroads within the state. He says that time was when a bushei of wheat would carry a passenger 117 miles but that now it will only carry him the 17 without the hundied. Let all democrats bear in mind the date of the county convention, Sept. 6th. It should be the occasion of an outpouring of the democracy of old Washtenaw. It will be a very appropriate day for democrats to make a pilgrimage to the county hub, whether they are delegates to the convention or not. The cause of the early American patriots was not adjudged by the treacherous course of Benedict Ar nold. No more should the cause o the later patriots, the advocates o commercial and industrial freedom be decried on account of the traitor ism of a few Democratie senators Since time began every reform ha had its Arnolds. - Hudson Gazette The democratie congressiona nominee of the second distric should be a supporter of the na tional administration. No candi date should receive the favor of th congressional convention whos claim has for its basis his hostility to those measures of the govern ment which all right minded 1 sens concede to have been wise and prudent. Hon. Spencer O. Fisher, demoratic candidate for governor, speakng at a farmers' political picnic at Grand Ledge, a few days since, delared that he had been offered two ents a pound increase on his 125,00 lbs. of wool since the passage f the tariff bilí. He will hold his wool for a farther advance. He is ure it will come. Free wool has no terrors for him. Notwithstandng the fact that he is an extensive wool grower, he has long been an ut and out advocate of the removal of all wool duties. The following brave words of President Cleveland should be the watchword of democratie voters in he approaching campaign: "The trusts and combinations- the ommunism of pelf,- whose machinaions have preven ted us f rom reachng the success we deserved, should ot be forgotten or forgiven. We hall recover from our astonishment t their exhibition of power, and if hen the question is foiced upon us whether they shall submit to the i'ree egislative will of the people's repreentatives, or shall dictate the laws which the people must obey, we will accept and settle that issue as one involving the integrity and safety of Americau institutions. The tariff bilí became a law last night at midnight without the president's signature. It is not áll the eople wanted but as an alternative to McKinleyism it is a great improvement. It is the entering wedge which in time will destroy the iniquitous system which for thirty years has taken from one man his earnings to give to another. McKinleyism has been repudiated and the progress of the reform will continue until the fetters which have bound the industry and commerce of the country are struck off forever. The battle for tariff reform will be fought to a finish. The following from Edgmont, South Dakota, one of the greatest wool growing districts of the United States, ought to be of interest to farmers generally, and especially to those who fear the result of the removal of the wool duty: Work is being pushed faster, if possible, on the new woolen mili now in course of erection here, since we are assured of f ree wool. Situated as we are in the great wool growing country of the northwest, with 10,000,000 sneep within a few hundred miles, together with the immense irrigating canal with ampie power f or a dozen like industries we can compete with the world, in quantity, quality and cost of woolen goods. If our 'calamity howlers" would acquaint themselves with "conditions, not theories," regarding the wool industry here they would learn that we can and do defy the competition of the world, and to a man rejoice in f ree wool.
