The most serious complaint of the
captured the markets of tlie world. No
paying market in England, France or
Germany, and Secretary Morton says
"It is unlikely that we shall be able (
to 'dispose of any of our surplus in
Europe." We thought the markets of
the world were waiting for our surplus
products. Can it be that the markets
of India, China and Japan alone are
open to us? Must we grow tubers to
supplant the rice crops of the Orient?
We cannot but admire Mr. Free
Trade Secretary Morton's candor in de-
scribing these free trade conditions,
varying so greatly, as they do, from the
free trade promises of 1892. Secretary
Morton says that "these conditions are
worth nothing.'' They are, Mr. Sec-
retary. The farmers will note them-

"The demand for American products in

that "hundreds of acres will not be
dug," and that "much of the acreage
will go to feed stock."
Here is another startling announce-
ment on the official authority of the
secretary of agriculture in one of his
crop reports. Can Mr. Morton recon-
cile the above with the Democratic
promises made to farmers in 1892, that
the value of all farm crops would be
enhanced if'the protectionists were
turned out of office and the free trad-
ers installed in their places? Potatoes
"do not pay for digging." says the free
trade secretary's report. Hundreds
of acres will not be dug" even when so
much labor is idle and wages are so
much cheaper than they were in 1802.
"Much of the acreage will go to feed
stock" feeding potatoes to stock as
well as dollar wheat, and corn to be
burned, too. Is there no hope for the
farmer? Let us see if the markets of
the world won't save him. Here are
our exports of potatoes for the last
five years: •

Some of the railroads report large

This is easily explained. In 1892 the
railroads got more double hauls- first
in carrying raw materials to manufact-
urer, second in carrying the finished
products to market. Now they are
hauling less raw material to our larger
imports of finished foreign products,
on which they make especial freight
rates to dis< rimiriatc against the Am« i
an producer. Straight protection
gradually increased during the Mc-
Kinley tariff period and how we capt-
ured half million more bushels of
the potato markets of the world in
1893 than we did in 1891. Note again
that, directly the free traders got their
fingers on the farmers' potato crops,
our exports fell off and we shipped
abroad 270,000 bushels less in 1895 than
Perhaps, though, there will be a
chance for the farmers to capture the

The wheat crop of 1895, as given by
Dornbusch's list, was 305.795,000 .piar-

! ers larger than the world's wheat crop
of 1892. On July 1, 189i\ the price of

Ex-Congressman Bartine in National
Bimetallism The bankers are In ecsta-
cies*over a new-found champion In the
person of one Aldredgr. who trtade a
funny speech at Atlanta.
Whether this Aldredgo Is a very
young man and gave the bankers the
benefit of his maiden effort, or is one
of ripe, years who has been hiding his
incandescent light under a canopy of
extreme modesty, we know not. But
we do know that he has emerged from
obscurity and electrified a few simple-
minded bankers with his. wit.
It is unfortunate, though, that he has
so much of natural humor in his mind,
that unconsciously he allowed it to per-
vade his eutire speech. Some of his
most serious propositions were, in fact,
the funniest parts of his discourse.
Among other things, he brought out
the very remarkable fart, that the farm-
er is better off with wheat at 50 cents
per bushel than he would be with wheat
at $1. Then he made it clear to those
grave and wise bankers that diminished
production is tin* true road to national
prosperity, illustrating it by very co-
gent references to the recent rise in the
price of cqtton as rf result of a reduced
These discoveries are of such import-
ance to mankind that Judge Aldredge
should have indulged in more ampli-
fication. and carried them to their loci
cal conclusion. If the farmer is better
off with 50-cent wheat than with dollar
wheat, then 25-cent wheat will make
him sti.'l more prosperous. and when it
gets down to nothing per bushel, the
cup of his happiness will be full The
failure of the great humorist to eluci-
date this point leaves his magical ef-
fort a little incomplete.
Then with regard to the blessings
which have come from the partial
failure of the cotton crop. From 9.900,
000 bales last year it has fallen to 6.500 -
000 or 7.000,000 this year. Now if a loss
of 3,000,000 bales of cotton has so great-
ly improved business conditions in the
! south, what a flood tide of prosperity
would have rolled over that region if
the loss had been 6,000.000 bales! And
if it had pleased Divine Providence to
destroy it all. the cotton planter would
lie happier even than the farmer who
sells his wheat for nothing. The in-
completeness of the judge's remarks
' upon these points was unfortunate. It
, oaves the impression that his humor
is rather mechanical, and that his logic,
while very good as far as it goes, breaks
off rather too soon, as it were.
He might ha'e very materially add-
ed to the force of bis argument (?) if
he had made a little reference to his
own salary. If he is still a judge we
i presume he draws a salary. He might
have told those assembled philanthro-
pists how exceedingly prosperous he
was on the small stipend he was re-
tching. how mpch more prosperous he
would be if he were reduced one-half,
and that if he could only be permitted
j lo serve the dear people for nothing,
he would then occupy a position of un-
J speakable bliss. Doubtless he would
1 have used this illustration if lie had
!bought of it. But. we must not be too
To accept Judge* Mdredgi s statement ,
requires too high a flight into the j
realms of fancy. We might possibly
imagiue McKinley as the only true |
friend ©f free trade, or Henry lienrg*-
as an earnest consistent champion of :
protection: we can conceive of Baron
Rothschilds as a thoroughly unselfish (
humanitarian, a highway robber as u
conservative of the law, or Annanias
as a "God of Truth," but we are not i
quite able to so completely reverse the
ordinary modes of thought as to appre-
ciate Judge Aldredge's rhetorical figure
in which the advocates of the gold
standard are pictured as the "true
friends of silver."
It is really no wonder that the bank-
ers went wild with enthusiasm over
their new prophet. It most certainly
wrought some miracles. And yet it
must be confessed that he has not quito
settled the silver question. Perhaps
he will later on.

Mexico seems to be well satisfied with
h r monetary system. There Is no rea-
son why she should not be. Although
not yet iu the front rank of nations,
she is improving her condition with
marvelous rapidity. So long as she is
moving forward with greater relative
speed than gold standard nations, it is
but natural that she should regard her
monetary system as a good one.
When half-civilized nations upon the
silver basis are enjoying greater rela-
tive prosperity than the highly civilized
gold standard countries. It furnishes
conclusive evidence that gold Is not the
only "honest and sound money." If
ihe believers in the gold standard
w ould open their eyes, the palpable his-
toric truth that nations have lived and
prospered for many years at a time
without, either metal in circulation, it
might dawn upon them that all the
iiopes ol humanity do not depend upon
the gold dollar.

Washington. Nov. .'10 Secretary cf
War Lamont has submitted his annual
report to President Cleveland. The
feat lire of it is a showing of the tardi-
ness with which the plans for coast
defenses and armaments are being car-
ried out "The original plan," says
Secretary Lamont, "contemplated an
expenditure of $07,782,800 by the end
of the present year The actual ex-
penditures ami appropriations for
armament and emplacements have,
however, been but $lo,«P 1,000. The
average annual appropriation for these
two objects has been less than SI. >1)0,-
OOi The work litis therefore been
conducted ai about a seventh of
the rate proposed. if future ap-
propriations for the manufacture
of guns. mortars and carriages
be no larger than the average
authorized for the purpose since
1888. it will require twenty-two years
more to supply 1!>«• armament "t th®
eighteen important ports for which
complete projects are approved. If
the appropriations for the engineer
work are to continue at the rate of the
annual appropriations since Is'.iU. it
will require seventy years to complete
the emplacements and platforms for
tliis armament for the ports referred
to It rests with Congress lo deter-
mine by its appropriations the period
which shall elapse before our coasts
shall be put in a satisfactory condition
of defense. The amount required for
the eighteen porta is about 918,000/000,
and th«> entire work can be completed
within ten years
