Cleveland should liave burned liig Inaugural advocating aone term poliey bcfore giving it to the public. Krom tlie surly tone of our Thursday contemporary's editorials of late, it looks verymuch as lf it was preparing for a jump. The laboring men of this country will never vote bread and butter out of their own moutiis. Tliey are well enough posted to know the evil results of free trade. It is said - a eumpaign slander no doubt - that Thurmun smokes 10 cigars a day. It would seem difflcult to "smoke out" such a ni a il , but it will bc done, just the same. The National, a democratie paper at Peoria, UI., belleving that the prosperity of the working classes is of greater moment to this nation tlian the red bandanna, has come out for Harrison.

A reunión of 8,000 people wlio voted for Jobn C. Premont in 1856 was held In Danvllle, Ind., last Thursday. Their voting abillty has now more than (jnadrupled and all are for Harrison and Morton. The Detroit Tribune publishea daily a long list of veterans who voted for Vm. Henry Harrison in 1S40 and proposes to vote for hls grandson in 18S8. Thero are niaiiy in this city whose names might be idiled. What are the vast material interests of this natiou compared with just enough reverme to pay the army of offlc!al9 wlio are expected - under civil service rules - to whoop it up for Mr. Cleveland ?

The Irish World which has alwaye been a champion of Mr. BLiine, but of no other republiean, comes out warm in stipÍort of Harrlson and Morton, and beleves that no true Irlshinan can consistently support Mr. Cleveland wlth liis Hritish free tride policy. It beats all how the domocrats are attempting tocraw rish on the free trade business. The Free Press esiecially says that the free trade platform laid down by Mr. Cleveland is not free trade at all, but gool protection doctrine. ISosh ! You can"t hoodwink the people in that way.

" Because," Was tlie reply, "Mr. Morton's picture ooks like Tilden, and I know he must be a good man." And stí II the converts come. Gen. Harrison ia a poor man, and if elected president it must be on liis marlt, not on liis niouey. Hfe is a man of the strlctest integrity. ind has riever been aecused ot a crooked deed in his Ufe, or anything that ever squintod that way. His moral churacter is clean and pure Biso. He will be an honor to the White House. Ilon. Geo. H. Hopkins, of Detroit, has beea chosen ch;iirm;in of the republican state central comuiittee, and Harry C. Tillinan secretaiy.

Michigan will be fuund where she has been ever sitice the republican party was born, true to the principies of freedoin, and financial prosperity.

(Jongressmiui Russell, of Connecticut made the charge in Congress a few days since, and there was not a member of the Ways and Mean committe who could deny It. Pretty state of atl'nirs, is it not, to import a man from Eogland to draft our laws? In 1840 free trade had broken down business and nearly unpoverished the country. The grand leader of the Whig party, Henry Clay, advocated a protective policy and Wm. Henry Harrison was elected on that issue. To-day Mr. Cleveland has almoi-t crushed the llfe out of business by forcing upon the country once again a free trade policy, and the people will again rush to the republican party for deliverance, and elect General Benjamin Harrison president, who believes in the American policy of America for Americans. It is a question, and a serious one, too, wliether Allen Q. Thurman will support Grover Cleveland in this cauipaign.
