"He who hesitates is lost"
Is an adage old.
SFearful lovers, to their coat.
Learn they must be bold;
But, since nothing new can be
Underneath the sur,
'Tim as old as true that she,
Who hpsitates is--won.

A BOURBON has only to tell an old
Southern Whig that if he votes with
the men who sustain the principles of
Henry Clay he will "plunge the
South into the horror of negro rule"
and the Whig subsides.
THE South raised nine million more
bales of cotton from 1865 to 1875 than
she did from 1851 to 1861, which
proves that the free labor system in a
Protection country is ten per cent. bet-
ter than slave labor and Free Trade.
THE American people can stand
a Democratic President about four
years out of each twenty-eight, and
after next March has ended the
career of Cleveland, it will be about
twenty-four years before there is
another of his party in his place.
THE Bourbon tariff proposition, as
formulated, is a "tariff for revenue
only," but in practice it is, "rob my
neighbor but spare me." The Mills
bill is a scheme to increase protection
on Northern industries, but to remove
it altogether from the industries of the
North. The Bourbons are not satis-
fied with helping themselves, they
cannot feel happy except they rob
some one else.
IT is pretty hard work, the New
York papers find, getting up a laugh
at Editor Shepard's daily verse of
Scripture. The good cannot help
but approve it and the wicked must
admit that as a newspaper "dodge"
it is a shrewd one. Keep it up,
Brother Shepard. As a Christian
mission it will do more good than all
the tracts and all the street preachers
in your city.
THE idea of the industries of this
country being radically revolutionized
by a lot of Southern Bourbons who
don't know what the word industry
means! It is like a trio of country
lawyer assuming to remake and im-

About Steamship Lines.
The Mugwumps are opposed to
everything that will help America or,
rather,- embarrass the schemes or
interests of Great Britain and, of
course, all their organs oppose the
granting of subsidies or bounties to
establish lines of steamships to foreign
countries. Why shouldn't we grant
such subsidies to such lines as we
want. We granted land subsidies for
such railways as we needed and we
got the railways. We would not have
got them but for the grants of land.
If private citizens want a line of
steamships badly enough to build and
run the ships, they will do it. It is
nobody's business, but .theirs,
whether they do or don't. If the
American people want such a line
they have got t6 help. establish it or
they won't get it.
There are thousands of loud-
mouthed fools who, when
they discover that some other
country Iras? anr iif~tyl~ trar we
have not, begin immediately to be-
labor the American people because
they don't have it, as if argument and
orations about the shamefulness of
America's being excelled by another
country in a particular industry were
going to move some capitalist to re-
move this reproach upon his country,
by immediately investing several mil-
lions in the industry indicated.
The mugwumps think it disgraceful
to America that she has not great lines
of foreign-going steamships; yet when
it is proposed that the people shall
devote some of the public funds to es-
tablishing such lines, they wildly pro-
test. But in what way do they expect
America to get such steamship lines?
A Hint to the Bourbons.
Says a Florida fruit-grower: "We
say to the Bourbons, we want a dollar
a box tariff on oranges, and we are
going to have it, and if you folks won't
give it to us we will try the other side
at the next election and see what they
can do for us. We are getting tired
of waiting, and. of listening to your
talk about .sticking to your "tradi-
tions." There is too much nigger in
your traditions and we are not fighting
the nigger issue. We are trying to
live and get ahead in the world. The
Sotth ought to get done bushwhack-
ing and go to work in harmony with
its neighbors. and not be turning up
every year with a new row, disturbing
the peace and safety of the nation,
like the one drunken brawler in a
peaceable community. We are sick of
it. The other side offer us Protection,
Progress, Prosperity and Plenty-that
is what we want, and are going after-
And now good bye, dear Bourbon
We bid you all adieu,
We'll try Jim B.,
Or Chancy D.,
And never come back to you.
Our Irish friends, they lead the van,
They're always up to snuff.
You can't fool them
By tongue or pen
With your British Free Trade guff."
THERE is nothing Bourbon, a
or fishy about an Irishman,
may be remarked that people who
think the Irish are going to be led
around by the nose by the Bourbons
in this campaign 'don't know the
Cheap labor is a n tional curse. A
man who does not lar and does not
produce is a parasite; he is the rat that
eats the malt that liet in the House
that Jack Built. But he is in some
sort a public benefit,, for he helps giva
employment to tho0e who produce
what he consumes. There is wealth
enough in the earth for all men to be
millionaires, if all men were wisely
and rightly employed.
An under-paid man is like the
owner of a garden whose crops are
nearly all stolen fro~i him in harvest
time. He might ha re had an abund-
ance, but some othei man had rather
steal than work. And so the owner
of the garden mu# starve himself
that others may live upon his labor.
The well-paid marilike the gardener
who raises abundant crops eats and
drinks, is~fat and merry, exchanges
his surplus product for timber from
the forests, metals from the mine,
meat and wool and 'leather from the
flocks, and still has ,a surplus to give
-away-to thsk n unate.
Every hardworking man "in any
useful trade is entitled to compensa-
tion sufficient to support him, and a
family of half a dozen, and provide
them with all reasonable comforts and
advantages. The laborer who accepts
less than this wrongs himself and all
his fellows. He agrees to half-starve
himself to create useless surpluses for
others. Free Trade is the agency by
which men are forced to take less than
what is due them for their work. The
Protection system of America has done
more to raise. wages than any other
agency ever employed.
THE American people had heard
the Democrats shout "rascals" and
"count the money" so count they
concluded to let them in to count it.
There was not found a single error in
the books, nor a single cent to be mis-
sing .And the people are satisfied and
are going to put the Republicans back
where they belong, in charge of the,
It is rumored around that Col. Wil-
liam L. Brown of the New' York
Daily News will be appointed Post-
master of that city. This would be
genuine civil service reform. Col.
Brown is a sound Democrat.-Atlanta
This is what you mean when you
speak of "genuine civil service re-
form." Don't forget it. Don't kick
up a rumpus and denounce the Re-
publicans next year if they adopt the
A Mugwump on the Irish.
The Bourbons think they own the
Irish vote, and the Mugwumps "stand
in" with the Bourbons because they
control the solid South and the Irish
vote at the North, and are for British
free trade. An Irishman will be as
quick to see through this as any one.
A queer political medley indeed would
be a "combine" between Harper's
Weekly, the Evening Post, the New
York Times, the British Free-traders of
all sorts, all the Irish in America, the
Bourbons of the South, the Mormons
of Utah and the Federal office-holders.
We doubt if the Irish will join that
sort of procession this year. Here is a
suggestion of what the Mugwump
New York Times thinks of Irish
Americans; it says:
Who has a better right than Pat
Ford and Mike Kerwin, bedad, to tell
the Amurricans phat is truly Amurri-
can? Haven't the Amurricans been
electing the likes of thim to all the
offices they fancied for the last twin-
ty-five or thirty years? Is there an
Amurrican Legislature, from Congress
down to the Board of Aldermen, that

the inflooence in ward politics and city
politics and State politics of the Oirish
saloon keepers in the city av New
York. Ask Governor Hill, be jabers,

tion. Wud he veto the High Li-
cense bill for 'em? Wud a duck
Sure, the Amurricans have nothing

than so many Englishmen, at all, at
all. They wear English clothes and
they read English books instead of
the grand old poetry of Oireland,
and they haven't a bit of a brogue

free trade and British gold they're
Look at that old spalpeen Hewitt,
and the outrage he perpetrated upon
every thrue Amurrican whin he

Hall on Patrick's Day. Phat is he

to be a thrue Amurrican, and don't yez

right to call themselves thrue Amurri-

Results of Southern Solidity.
The astonishment which was felt when
Saul appeared among the prophets
only faintly prefigures the amazement
which will be occasioned by the fact
that the Democratic nominations in
South Carolina are so bad as to move
the Bourbon Charleston News and
Courier to huch Mugwumpiap senti-
ments as these:
"Dangerous as it is to refuse to vote
for a nominee of the Democratic party
it is more dangerous still-even in a
political sense-to proclaim to the
State and nation that, in South Caro-
lina, the choice of an unthinking or
ill-informed majority, in convention
or at a primary election, will be sup-
ported and elected, though -he be
crusted all over with public rascality
and official corruption. It is bad
politics, and contrary to good morals,
to inculcate or encourage indifference
to official rectitude by demanding for
a person who has been found to be
dishonest as much consideration and
faith as are given to him whose public
record is clear and without staiii."

As the science of good government
