worse condition there is qnq thing that is beyond controversy tend that is an increasing evil that will be admitted by everybody growth of selfishness It is apparent to an observing man who keeps up with current news that in their efforts to obtain lleg- islative favors many interests are los ing sight of the good of time country For instance the money lenders want to shape the legislation of the country on money and the finances to suit themselves without propsr consideration of all other classes Secondly the manufacturers want to shape legislation on the tariff question for their benefit with out considering the welfare of all other classes The railroads want to shape legislation for their good on some line This spirit is widening and driftingall the time until it applies to the farmer the mechanic the merchant and all 1 classes of business mcn They seem toiII be directing their efforts to secure such legislation alone as will benefit their class All this makes trusts and combinations inevitable Statesmanship that takes into consid eration the greatest good to the greatest number is dwindling into insignificance in state titta national legislation f Tito l fr result is

Without a single exception there is beyond doubt no greater or more popular newspaper in the United States than the Cincinnati Enquirer or a more successful publisher than its proprietor Mr John R McLean The oldtime prices for the Daily Enquirer have been maintained and its circulation largely increased each year hard times and cheaper jour nals failing to arrest its onward march and high appreciation of the public for its true worth and merit The Weekly Enquirer at beginning of the campaign year was offered at 50 cents a year and its circulation increased by the addition of over 200000 new subscribers the most substantial and coveted testimonial a publisher could desire When asked for the secret of such success Mr McLean frankly answers The Enquirer has no opinions to force upon its patrons it simply prints the facts and tells the truth that the reader may form his own opinions By maintaining the price of the paper more news and greater variety can be furnished and every class of business cheaperjournal The very liberal support given the Enquirer by the public at large makes- it incumbent upon the management to serve it faithfully with zeal and en terprise in minor matters as well as those of greater magnitude PlringStop Get our Great Catalogue and Buy ers Guide Well send it for 13 cents in stamps to pay part hostage or expressage The Books free
