General Francis A. Walker
proposes to put a tax of $100 upon
every man, woman and child
coming into the United States
after the first of July, 1H02, the
jouey to be refunded if it can
be proven after a certain period
that the immigrants have suc
ceeded in bettering their condi
tion. This he thinks will not stop
the coming of bright and ambitious
foreigners, but will effectually
check the tide of "ambitionlesa and
shiftless people who now constitute
such a large percentage of the
throng landed daily at Ellis Island
There is no doubt that the people
of the United States will soon be
ready to give favorable attention to
any plan which will do what Gen
eral Walker promises will be the ef
fect of the adoption of his sug
gestionthe cutting off of nine
tenths of the present immigration
and the reduction ef the dangers
attendant upon the incoming of so
many foreigners to a minimum.
THE LOUISIANA SITUATION.
The political situation in Lou is i
ana is interesting and important be
oauW of the remarkable fact that
fur once in n southern state the
democratic party is divided, and
the opposing factions are fighting
each other with all the energy and
bitterness that they have heretofore
displayed in combating the repub
llcans. This is a mere accident, to
he sure, and does not imply any
vital order of disagreement or anv
probability of a prolonged conflict;
Dut it nas its significant side, never
theless, and the country will not
tail to observe the lesson. The dis
turbing factor in the case is the lot
tery. That iniquitous concern has
been sustained by democratic voles
in return for money liberally contri
oiuea to democratic campaign
lunus, ana a majority of the nartv
appear to be in favor ot granting a
new cnarter lor the perpetuation of
the evil, while a strong minority is
against the shameful proposition.
uuier considerations, general and
personal, enter into the matter to
some extent, but the main source of

tton so well known everywhere. An
attempt has been made to restore
harmony by the withdrawal of the
candidates of both factions, and
the nomination of a new ticket
equally divided between the two;
but it has proved to be a failure,
- and the fight goes on with increas
mg rather than diminishing
warinui and determination.
It is curious to note each faction
is charging the other with the same
onenses that the democratic party
has been committing m the state
ever since the war in order to main
lam us supremacy and prevent
any other party from having a fair
and just chance to gain the victory.
Louisiana is republican to-day on a
full vote and with an honest count.
The suppression of sufferage there
has been as bad as in Mississippi,
All kinds of fraud and violence
have been systematically perpe
trated for the purpose of depriving
republican citizens of their rights
and privileges. The democrats are
now called upon to take some of
their own medicine. They have
profited for many years by dis
honest and disgraceful political
practices, and they need uot expect
any sympathy at the present time
when they are protesting so loudly
against such wrongs because they
are themselves the victims. It ia
an instance of the irony by which
fate sometimes provides striking
and salutary instruction. They are
only reaping what they have been
sowing. .The demoralization of

policy of fraud and violence waB
introduced by their consent and for
the advantage of their party, and it
is too late now for them to assume
virtuous airs and pretend to be
shocked and outraged when that
policy happens to invade their
own rights.-Glolie Democrat.

THE "HAYSEED" AS A MIDWINTER
That the "hayseeds," as Mr. Hill
called the country voters last fall,
are voting as they think, appears
from remarks of voters at the Bath
(Steuben county) town meeting.
Two old friends met on the street.
One said to the other:
"What made you drive twelve
miles such a day as this to vote?"
The other answered:
"I want to record my protest
against David B. Hill."
When Nichols' election was an
nounced by the poll clerks a well
known democrat remarked in the
crowded room: "Hill didn't bull
doze the farmers this time."
Dr. Parkhill of Howard, and Em-
J mitt Ross of Campbell, who were
most active in caring out Senator
Hill's wishes in the Sherwood case
when it was before the county can
vassers, were both candidates for
re-election on Tuesday, and both
were beaten by decisive majorities.
THE BUSINESS SITUATION.
The report for the week from the
clearing houses show very large
gains in the northern half
of the country and a de
cided improvement at the south.
The totals at New York, Philadel
phia and Boston were swelled by
the unprecedented volume of spec
ulation in stocks;, but the increased
business at all the western, north
western and southwestern centers
was evidently due to the commence
ment of spring trade. There has
been a still further decline in silver
and cotton, bringing the quota
tions to the lowest notch yet.
Most cheering reports are made
by eastern jobbers in silk goods
and cotton cloths, so far as western
orders are concerned; but patron
age from the southern centers falls
so far short of the ordinary volume
as to disclose the fact that only one
section of the country feels able to
buy liberally. Western wholesalers
have been discounting their spring
bills and awaiting with confidence
grand revival in trade. The im
proved conditions in the distribu
tion of merchandise have not been
accompanied by an enlargement in
the line of manufacture. The
prices iu iron have crumbled some
what by reason of too liberal pro
duction. It is likely that a slight
decline in the quotations might
cause the closing of weak establish
ments and aid in restoring prices
satisfactory to the mills. The
country ia about to test the question
whether nn overabundance of
money can be counted upon to
stimulate commerce and manu
facture to any great degree.
The event of the past week that
has most thoroughly absorbed the
attention of the country was a com
bination of coal railroads and
mining properties representing
Sf750,(XX),CKK) of capital. In one sense
it foretells an additional burden up
on the public in the cost of fuel.
Hut the projectors of the colossal
scheme have endeavored to make
clear the fact that their enlarged
profits are to come from the intro
ductiou of economies in the man
agement of trade and in the distri
bution of the output. In the
methods and motives of the Vander
biltsand their allies in the scheme
the public has sufficient faith
to disipate any alarm that might
follow upon full knowledge f the
arrangement Inter Ocean.
England is a great ehoemakinir
country. Massachusetts ia a creat

meut of a free coinage bill, the

"Reciprocity is free trade,"

did every calami. yite and free

against the reciprocity section of

' speak so slightingly of the "Blaine

Will the "reformer" explain?
The esscutial dishonesty of the
free silver advocates is demon
strated by the fact that, on the coin
age committee, they voted down
every proposition to increase the
amount of silver in a dollar. II all
they wanted was to bring silver into
more general use, they would not
object to putting something like a
dollars' worth of silver into the
coin. But what they want is to de

SPECIAL MARKET LETTER.
W. G. Press & Co., Banker & Commis
sion Merchants, Noi. 2 and 4 Sherman
Street, Chicago, in their last special mar
ket letter say: Our wheat market during
th past week has been subject to influences
natural and artificial which have kept it ia
a feverish and unsettled condition. The
earlier outside news was ot a decidedly
encouraging nature for holders, and but
for the subsequent demoralizing teuor of
advices from Washington, the long looked
for advance, which has been so patiently
awaited by farmers and owners of large
quantities of stored grain, would doubtlest,
have begun; for foreign markets which have
so long refused to willingly follow ours in its
upward reactions, exhibited signs of inde
pendent strength, those of Continental
countries ruling higher ia consequence of
reported damage by frost to the growing
crop in France, additional injury to the
Russian crop, and the probability that
Russia will soon become a large importui
of grain. So decided was the effect of these
factors that the Paris market became bouy
aot and excited, and ours manifested a dis
position to freely respond, but before the
change in sentiment had become pro
nounced enough to markedly affect values,
the autament trom a trustworthy source,
that the so called Anti-Option bill, now un
der consideration by the house committee
on agrkellert, would doubless receive its
approval and pass the boase, at once
checked the upward movement and started
a decline which at one time threatened to
terminate iu a disastrous panic; for when
the portability of hasty adverse legislation
in a matter which so greatly affects the
welfare of the entire agricultural, commer
cial and financial interests of oar country,
suggested itself to the minds of those famil
iar with the workings of the established
system in all its ramifications, the desire to
avoid its disastrous results outweighed all
other considerations and long wheat was
sold out regardless of the encouraging new.
noted. The desire to unload may be ap
preciated whea it is remembered that there
are at present over 60,000,000 bushels ef
wheat in the country in public and private
elevators, almost all of which is sold foi
future delivery in the leading produce mar
kets, for the purpose of securing storage,
interest and insurance charges, which are
paid in the form of premiums for futures
over the spot property and that the passage
of the bill proposed would render it neces
sary for the speculative holders of this
wheat to sell it out, before the law became
operative, to some one who would buy and
pay for it. As bankers could not be in
duced to advance funds to carry the prop
erty under the changed conditions, prices
must necessarily decline to a point attrac
tive enoogb to induce foreigu merchants to
take the wheat and carry it until needed
for consumption abroad. That sncb a
point would be far below present quotations
is evident, at least to the ao called profes
siooal speculator who generally knows upon
which side his bread is buttered. So
thoroughly identified has the dealing in
futures become with the business of band
ling the staple products of the country, and
so small is the prospective profit of the
middleman in consequence, that nearly
every husbel of grain marketed is protected
by a future sale uutil it reaches the con
sumer, whether at home or abroad. With
its aboliV ion would come greater risks, in
creased targins of profit, and the absolute
dominitiia of our markets in seasons 01
abuudanc by foreign dealers. As the sy
tern would be in vogue in other countries
our compel tors could, by minimizing their
risks, undtt sell us in all the consuming
m.rk.t. r,t s he world. It is by the aid of
this system 'hich ' is so iU-advisedly pro
