Why the Bolten are Bolting.
AND WHY MOST OF IT IS BEING
' ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE. m -
In making the canvass of districts
before election, says the Palladium f ..as
Grille those who have voted with the
party in the party are looked npon as
tixed quantity, and counted in. "How
does Jones stand?" said the canvasser.
HeVrwith lis," says the. questioned,
and says it because! Jones 5was "with
nsMast year, 'unless he hxs given out
that he proposes to makti a snif t.
But sometimes, wh n t lere hsis been
a loosening of party liei generally, or
there is a nswor ubso.rbinj issue, great
mistakes tra made in this way. It was
poor Counting, for example, in New
'or in 1S& when Mr. Cleveland's
majority for Govein ir was over 192,
00t. The issue then was as distil c:
between the two factions" of the Re-
nnhlirnn riartv as between the two
parties, although uot .outspoken. 1 1
was a question ofleadershjp, and many
thousands of one factiou rather than
be led by the leaders of the other fac
tion, cast their votes secretly for the
Democratic ticket, or split' their ticket,
or declined to vote. It effected the
obiect sought for at the time, but caused
the defeat of the Republican, candidate.
fop- President in i2?4,'which was not
autica by the bolters. I
"rliis is to be another untisual cami
paign for boltmr', and the most of the
bolting is to be on the Republican side,
but for a different reason from that of
1883. The old tariff issue, which has
been kept in the background since
before the war, now ,comes to the front
again, and overshadows every other.
It is an issue which appeals strongly
to both patriotism-and jself-interest.
The Republican party at last represents
monopoly and oppression before every
thing else, and the Democratic party
represents popular interests and nation
al prosperity. .. . . '
The former would keep the burden
of unnecessary taxation fastened upon
the people, and thereby keep up ex
travagant prices for many Of the essen
tials of life in order to confer supposed
benefits upon a few class interests.
The Democratic party would lessen
that heavy burden bv reducing import
duties down to the level of the revenue
needs of the Government, laud is espe
cially earnest in its effort to cheapen
raw materials by placing the most im
portant of them upon the free list. It
moves cautiously, however, and is sure
that its plan, if carried into effect, would
benefit rather than injure manufactu
rers. The Republicans at once pro
ceed to raise a hue and cry to the effect
that the Democrats are trying to pros
trate industries and reduce wages and
play into the hands of England, and
they parade figures which really prove
nothing foi their claims. It is an ef
fort, to blind. It is dust-throwing. It
does not touch the gist of the matter.
"Tinkering" With the Tariff.
The Republicans have pretended
great anxiety lest the "tinkering with'
the tariff," as they call it, might interj
fere with the business interests of the
country. How comes it that they are
going into this tinkering business on
their own account? The Republican
members of the Senate ' propose to
frame a tariff bill of their own, and it
in tf l.r L..',V ...aV,
i wuW huve expectea it? After blam
ing the Democracy on every stump for
"HiiKermg wun xnc tarin tuey proceed
to do a little tinkering themselves.
What is to be said of such inconsisten
cy?, It is of a piece with u Radical
action within recent years. ; The Re
publican j)arty frames a platform and
its representatives in Congress act in
direct opposition to its declarations.
The party assumes a position for the
sakeofeffect and its members dodge it
whenever the policy , of the moment
seems to depmiid such action. Consis
tency is unknown within its ranks. It
bends all its energies to vote-making,
at whatever cost of consistency or
principle. Today it is with; one minor
party, tomorrow with another. It is
every thing by turns and nothing long.
j usi now it is desperate and pretends
in the Senate o offer thti people a
measure of, tariff reform, seeing that a
measure is imperatively demanded. , It
thus acknowledges, in effectj the iustice
of the Democratic position with respect
o arm revision ami reform: but it also
takes from its stumpers all the thun
der of the latter with reference to tariff
"tinkering." What are these stumpers
now 10 ao witnout the argument ot pre
tended anxiety that thev have been
shrieking Over the country? Who
wouiu nave looked for such treat
ment of them at the hands of those
in their own household? Who but
those who know the Republican-party,
its donbledealiiig, deceitful and reckless
course in the past, its present despera
tion nd disregard of all rules of con
sistency and'self-respect therein? '

bill passed. It wa before the House
several times last 'week, but a vote was
not reached. Mr. Springer is very

Cherokees at $1 ,000 per ann urn Mr.
Springer says the passage of this bill
would be followed by one of the most
remarkable phenomena that coloniza
tion or civilization has ever known.
In less than six months the territory
would be qualified by population to be
a state and, with a sly wink, two
thirds of them would be democrats.
