OUR COAL IN SOUTH AMERCA.
Few things have probably oc
curred ho injurious to the indus
tries and commerce of the south,
particularly that part of it fronting
on the Gulf, as the failure to pass
the shipping bounty bill as it was
reported by Congressman Farqu
har. That bill would have covered
not only the Gulf coast with ehip
building yards, but the bounty
paid to American-built vessels
would have covered the seas to the
southward with schooners and
steamers carrying at first coal and
Possibly the editors of some
southern newspapers which will
again support congressmen who
voted against this bill, will say to
their readers whether or not they
think these vessels would not soon,
in many cases, build up regular
lines, carrying the products of the
Gtdf states and bringing back the
products of the countries visited?
They say they want foreign trade,
but they act as if the only foreign
trade they wanted was the poverty
breeding trade of selling raw mate
rials to Western Kurope.
How many cargoes has Mobile,

ably continue to get her Rio coffee
through New York. Hut if the Far-
qubar bill had passed she might
have used Alabama iron, lumber
and cotton to build and equip ves

for her trade with countries to the

This coal trade gives great
strength to British commerce in
the countries lying south of us.
As all of their coal is imported, an3'
portion of a cargo can be made up
w:th coal, which is certain of a sale
in default of competition from the
United States. There is no other
item in which the Farquhar bill
would have so injured the trade
and commerce of Great Britain,
and have done so much for the
Gidf coast as this one item of coal.
Our exports to Brazil during
May 1891 show an increase of 80 per
cent over the exports to the same
country during the same month
one year ago. This republican ad
ministration is ruining the foreign
commerce of the ' country at an
alarming rate. It is "stifling" and
"smothering" trade whenever it
has a chance.

Lamont an unfavorable candidate
for the or- Mdencv on account
the growing sentiment against a
second term. He was president
during the four v-ears in which he
"acted as pilot lish to the whale,"
according to Brother Dana, and
that rules him out, although he is a
"rattling good fellow and not ineli

particular that the clock shall be
kept wound, and if he goes into the

it is not running he will not stay

REPUBLICAN STATE CONVENTION.
Gf I The republican electors of the
! state ot Nebraska are requested to
send delegates from their several
counties, to meet in convention in
the city of Lincoln, Thursday, Sep
tember J4. 1MU, at 10 o'clock a. in.,
for the purpose of placing in nomi
nation candidates for one associate
justice of the supreme court, and
two meniuers oi tne ioaru ot re
gents of the state university, and to
transact such other business as
maybe presented to the convention.
THE A f I o K T I K M E N T
The several counties are entitled
to representation as follows, being
based upon the vote cast for Hon
Geo. II. Hastings, for attorney-general

As Hamilton county goes so
goes Ohio has long been recog
nized as a truism in that state.
That Hamilton county will not
support Governor Campbell is very
clear, hence we may infer that W. J.
McKinley will be the next governor
of the Buckeye state.
THE Ohio democrats, in casting
about for something to want that
the present administration was not
after, declared in favor of recipo

ASTRONOMERS nave discovered
two more spots on the inn. The
Inter-Ocean says they are free
trade spots and should not alarm
the people, as they are easy to
knock off. And the Inter-Ocean
knows, for it has been signally sue
cessful knocking free trade spots
from the body politic.
THE usual convention speech al-
way abounds largely in buncombe.
The tirade against extravagant
legislation at the recent Ohio dem
ocratic state convention, however,
takes the breath of the average man,
who recognizes the Campbell ad

THE Illinois trust law seems to be
the best one so far framed out of
several that have been placed upon
the statute books of several states
within the last three or four years.
The Illinois law has already
smashed several trusts without the
people having to invoke the aid of
the courts. The life of the Amer-j
lean trusts is uncertain at best,
while under our free and liberal i
rrovernment they became in
trenched, yet the strong arm of the
;aw can and will reach them.
THE PROVIDENCE "JOURNAL" ON
That the literal efforts of the
"Reform" Club in this citjr are of
great value to editors of vacant or
laz3' minds goes wit Iiout sa 'ng but
there are drawbacks to the careless
use of editorials sent out by even
uch well-trained literati as those
employed on the corner of Fifth
avenue and 27th street. A sad ins
tance of this is found in the Provi
dence Journal of a late date, where
an editorial, evideutly intended for
a bucolic section of the country, is
misplaced in the succeeding
column to one intended for manu
