The McKinley tariff bill which the Republicans have framed to increase the price of all things that the larmers of the country have to bny, except sugar, will probably pass the House of Representatives, as there is hardly a Republican who when the time comes will fail to vote for it. Its flagrant and outrageous discriminations against the agricultural classes, especially those in the South, have been pointed out and denounced by the Democrats in tbe House, but the Republicans are deaf to the voice of reason and the demands of jus? tice, especially when thpy come fiom the South. The Republicans promised iu their platform to take the tax off tobacco and abolish the internal leveuue system, but they now vote to keep up this odious system and to take the tariff off sugar simply because tobacco and sugar are Southern producta.

Two hundred and tiftv thousand laborers in Hyde Park, London,' and the streets of American and European cities filled with processions of workmen carrying banners, brings the subject of Labor and Capital .to the front.
