it would have been in better taate

The Hgwes Talk.
Salisbury. N. C. Oct *3
Speakiag of Republican claims
that the Dingley tariff baa helped
the working people of thia State,
Senator Simmons aaid:
"The Republicans daim that the
Dingley tariff baa benefitted labor
in this Stale. The report at Mr.
Varner, our Commissioner of Labor
for the year 1901 does not sustain
this contention. This report shows
that in fifty-three of the ninety
seven counties of this State the fi
nanrial comHtion of our working
people in poor and that ia forty of
them months their condition la not
only poor, but ia not improving.
An auulyab of this report shows
that labor m the agricultural coun
tiea is in In Hi 11 inuliliim than in
the manufacturing counties. In
the grent manufacturing county of
Rutherford the financial oondhiou
of our working people is reported
poor and not iaqaoviug; in Rock
ingham pom and not improving; in
Montgomery poor and not improv
ing; in Cumberland poor *wYnot
improving; in Forsyth poor and not
improving; in Cleveland poor and
not improving; in Lincoln poor and
not improving; in Cabarrus poor
and not improving; in Mecklcn
burg poor and not improving; in
Durham bad and not improving; in
Mitchell, the borne of mica, poor
and not improving.
"The improved financial condi
tion of farm labor ia this State is
not due to the tariff, because the
staple products of the farm are not
protected. But the un prosperous
condition of the operatives in the
cotton mills of this State is due in
a very large measure directly to
the high and oftiaaes prohibitory
schedules of the Dingley tariff.
These prohibitory schedules have
brought disaster alike upon the
mill owner and mill operatives in
this State. By fostering monopo
liatic trusts, they have raised the
cost of living to these operatives,
and by excluding foreign importa
tions they are closing, and in many
instances have already closed the
doors to foreign markets to the sur
plus products of these mills, and
have thereby brought about a con
dition of congestion and stagnation
in this industry which has made an
inert am in wagea impossible ■
"If the country is aa prosperous
as Republicans tells us it is. if im
periHsm or cnhmiaHsm, or whatever
name you may give to our new for
eign policy, is snch a great blessing
to our cotton ndb and their em
playeea: M the Dingier tariff meana
prosperity to our manufacturing
industries and their operatives, will

cotton mills of North Carolina are

—So few aa tuay be judged from
what they are saying about it, the
masses of the negroes here do not
carc a fig about registering. Only
a few have registered, and perhaps
most of them do not even try.
Your correspondent interrogated
au ex-postmaster, a colored man
wlio held office under McKinley.
and he said he found no trouble in
registering, and that the registrar
treated liitn pleasantly, and did not
seem to have any disposition to
stickle on technicalities. Being
asked if he thought it a hard law.
be said he did not, but believed
that if such a law had been |>assed
twenty-flve years ago it would have
been much ljetter for the negroes.
Got. Boles Silences T&em
Whenever the Democrats advo
cate a repeal of the tariff duties on
articles controlled by trusts which
are sold cheaper abroad than in
America, the Republicans declare
that there is no connection between
the tariff and trusts. To prove
their statement they declare:
"There are trusts in free trade
England" and act as if that stale-
I tnent proved their assertion.
Ex-Governor Horace Boies, the
Democratic candidate for Congress
in the district now represented by
Speaker Henderson, has mad? an
effectual .eply to Republicans in
Ohio who are making such asser
tions as the one stated above. Gov.
Boies makes this offer to bis oppo
"If yon can establish by compe
tent testimony that there k one
trust or combination of any kind in
any free trade country that manu
factures articles of necessity and
makes a business of exporting
them to other countries and selling
thetn to mrkcu foreign to their
own at prices substantially below
tjese for which they sell the same
articles in their home markets; as
our trusts are doing every day, I
.will pay every dollar of the expense
of obtaining such evidence and
withdraw from the field."
It is needless to say that this
challenge has not been accepted.
In making it Governor Boies has
given in a few sentences the strong
est argument for tariff reduction of
this year of able tariff speeches.—
