Can auy one gucss the reason ? Oh, no! When Mr. Stearns goes to firing statÍSÜC3 at the editor of the Ypsilantian, lic should be pretty we II posted.

J'mtection to domestic industries was forbidden by the Constitiition of the Confederacy whlch Ro-rer Q. Mills swore to support. The Contitution of the United States has no such provisión. Tlie free trader is as uiuch an anachronisui in this age as a coat of m iil on t Confedérate Treasury note. The Ypsilanti Scntinel takes the Deuionrat to task for an item complimenting Mr Clark Cornwell, the repuólican candidato for senator, upon his good qualltie. And the !entinel accuses soine of lts republican contení pora lies ot being mean! If that is not the quinlessencc of liltleness, where do you flnd it '! The laboilng man who votes for free trade or anything that tends to free trade, Of any legislativo orexecutive ofrlcer who favors free trade, votes the bread nnd butter out of his own mouth.

On Feb. 28, 1887, President Cleveland by a pocket veto, refused to sifrn a bilí that prohibited the purchase of convict made (joods by the government. The next diy h sent an order for 400 govemnient wagons to Chcrry, Morrow & Co., of Nashvillc, Teiin., whose hired help are the state convicts for whom thcy pny the state 25 cents a day, while the Suulebaker of South Beml, Ind , pay union hands from f 1 .50 to $3 per day. Laborng men should remember these things. Contract convict labor should be abolished, and li can't be dono too quick. And no man should be elected to office who does not lavor its abolishment.
