ocratio exchamr's. we have yet to
ece ii c 1 1 1 l i in t-iitnry notice of
I'ref i'.ient Harrison nicsHage.
Every question with which he
deals, it m.illers not how ably, is
held up to ridicule The following
able i:ii; n '.i.il a : Tionest comment
of the New York Hun would be inte
resting reading for these contracted
KpcciiMciis oi journalism:
The capital failure in the report
of the ((; et u-v of Mate is the nc
count of the ( to wlii'-h the re
ciprocity claim- of the M'Kinley
act have nl ready been put, and of
the larger re-ult to be expected.
We have heretofore referred in
these column- to the substantial
advanta ges whim will occur to
our produeer.-f of lood staples and
to our manufacturers when the
agreement with .spam respecting
the conditions of our trade with
her West Indian dependences shall
go completely into elicit, which
will not be until Inly 1, 1HX'.
Material benefits have been secured
by similar arrangement for partial
reciprocity between the United
States and Ura'.il: and the fact that
San Dominirn has made corres-
nondiiur concessions may cans
the development of a considerable

understood that neeotiations have
been undertaken for the purpose of
obtaining like facilities for trade
with several other South American
iind Central American slates, and
we infer from the president's ines-
sairc that more than one new field
fif commerce will presently be
opened. There are certain coun
tries on this'coutiuent, as, lor in
stance, Mexico, Venezuela and
I'erw, with which a free interchange
of many products may reasonably
be.looked for. 1 f the prospect seems
less bright in the directions of
Chili, the Argentine Confederation
and the United States of Columbia,
it is because the latter com nan v is
still in some degree tied to France
by the lingering hope of seeing the
Panama Canal completed while the
two former republics are too de
pendent upon Kngland, commer
cially and financially, to accept the
overtures oi the United Mates.
It should interest those Amer
icuns who have been swift to credit
the calumnious charges brought
nirainst Minister Kiran by tin anonv
moiis correspondent of the London
Times, to learn from the president's
message that up to the present hour
no omcial complaint ol tlie conduct
of our envoy in Santiago or of any
of our naval officers during the
Chilian civil war has been pre
sented to our federal government
Noteworthy also is the information
that the new Chilian government
lias not ventured lo deny the right
of asylum asserted for the Amer
ican legation by Minister r,gaii on
behalf of ISalmncedist refugees
lo the outiajres perpetrated in
Valparaiso on sailors wearing the
uniform of the United States the
president's message refers with in
dignatiou, and expresses a dignified
regret that the Chilian government
should have replied in an offensive
tone to the protest of the state
department. Significant is the
further statement that, unless a
more seemly and satisfactory
answer to our remonstrance is soon
received, the matter will be pressed
on the immediate attention of con
gress by a special message. It is,
indeed, high time that the insolence
of the Chilians should bo fittingly
rebuked, and (hat they should be
taught their true position with re
spect to this republic. Nothing
could be more groundless thau the
notion that we must put up with
the insult and injury from a petty
state lest we should expose our sea
ports to bombardment from Chilian
ironclads. There are plenty of
armored vessels of a high class to
be bought in Europe, and, if con
gress should authorize their
purchase, they could be brought
across the Atlantic long before a
Chilian vessel could reach our
On the whole, we believe thut no
one can read the report of the slate

conviction that our foreign rela
tions are in firm, capable and patri
otic hands. New York Sun.

t. t-oniinittffH Wednesday.
IT is announced from Washing
ton that the supreme court decision
in the Hoyd-Thayer contest will be
handed down to-day.
It has been stated that President
Harrison contemplates restoring

The beet sugar industry has
been stimulated by the M'Kinley
law but if the democratic papers
were laboring for the good of the
people this should note deter them
from supporting the move.
The declarations of the silver
miners' conventions in favor of tht
free coinage of silver will not dis
turb the republicans. Their fidelity
lo the KlOcent dollar has never
been questioned in the past and it
will not be in the future.
It is not surprising to see demo
cratic papers oppose the further
extension of the beet sugar indus
try. It would not be true to its
past record if it did not oppose
every movement caculated to en
courage America industries
The opinion is prevailing in dem
will be chosen
that Gen. Palmer
standard bearer in 'UU. Senator
Palmer has a strong constitution
and there is little doubt that he
would bear well the inglorious
defeat the nominee will sustain.
The members of the republican
party are practically united upon
every great question of public con
cern. As to preferences for a presi
dential candidate, there .can be said
to be but little litTerence. Blaine
and Harrison represent the true
blue republican sentiment and the
republicans will be perfectly satis-
nea witn either.
It is expected that Congress
Hryan will get a place upon the
ways and means committee. The
free trade congressman will find it
necessary to modify his views on
the tariff question if he meets the
expectations of the sneaker. Mr.
Crisp is opposed to the repeal of the
N Kinley law and the substitution
ot a tarilf for revenue measure
It has become generally settled
mat Win. Snrinirer will hi un.
pointed chairman of the way and
means committee and R. P. Bland.
chairman of committee on coinage.
If this program be carried out the
legitiniite results of the election of
Speaker Crisp will be realized. It
is plainly evident thatjthe majority
in the democratic party in con
gress, expects tuin to adopt no
radical tariff policy. The seclection
of Bland to shape a coinage bill is
a strong indication that Mr. Crisp
noes not regret his vote in the last
congress in favor ofjfree coinage
and that he desires to put such a
bill though the house and succeed
in corporating it in the democratic
platform in (J2.
