Mr. mine, in disc-using the Mills tariff
bill. and. the president's foreign policy, re
cently stated that he would be ashaicted
of any ilaine hJrse jockej who eoold not
do better for his country in -a trade with
other nations. Any jockey could have
made a better bargain for his country,
than the president did. bnt there are
jockeys' who .sometimes "throw a race,'
and allow, their competitors to come in
ahead, -and that is just what Grover Cleve
land has done in his negotiations with
Great' Britain. His administration has
always given to 'England and Canada all
they -wanted. 'President Cleveland had
not been in office' three months when he
reversed fhe action of congress, and put
in operation the obnoxious clauses in the
fisheries treaty which President Arthur's
administration had abrogated. He thus
nullified' an act of congress; and the late
Richard -L. Spofford,-a prominent lifelong
Democrat, declared that the president
merited impeachment forthat one act
Later when the Canadian. Pacific rail
road asked for valuable privileges which
conflicted with American interests' the
president hastened to grant them. That
road had acquired control of a steamship
line on the Pacific coast and wanted to
'ship freight from San Francisco in bond
to.our eastern ports without the payment
of duty. Secretary Dan Manning, who was
considerable of an American.promptly re
jected this request and declared that con
gress.by tho abrogation of article SO of the
treaty of Washington, had expressed its
determination to protect American com
merce from foreign companies. Bat after
Mr. Manning's death this ruling was re
verscd The administration gave to the
Canadian subsidized company full liberty
to compete with and to ruin tho business
of American roads, the latter being at
great disadvantage owing to tho restric
tions of tho interstate commerce law,
which did not apply to the foreign mon
opoly. In this case any jockey could have
done better for his country than Mr.
Cleveland did. .but our president did not
want to do wclL He wanted Canada to
Win, and ho "throw the race." If he is
not an English president, what is he?
Again, when the fisheries troubles arose
and outrages were being committed upon
hundreds of American vessels, prompt,
decisive and courageous action was neces
sary. But British interests were involved
and the president did not want to act.
He favored a vacillating policy which
would aid Great Britain. He proposed
the appointment of a commission to settle
the ' matter, but congress rejected this
proposition and passed an act, giving the
president full power to retaliate.. Presi
dent Cleveland in his recent remarkable
message to congress quotes this act as
"The congress has already passed a
law, which received executive assent on
the 3d day of March, 1887, providing that
in case .American fishing vessels being or
visiting in the waters or at any of the
1 ports of the British dominions of North
America, should ho, or lately had been,
deprived of the rights to which they were
entitled .by treaty or law,, or if they were
denied certain other privileges, therein
specified, or vexed and harassed in the en
joyment of the same, tho president might
deny to vessels and their masters and
crews of the British Dominions of North
America any. entrance into the waters,
ports, or harbors of the United States,
and also deny entry into any port or place
of the United States of any product of
said dominions, or other goods coming
from said dominions to the United

cited by the president in his message, ana
it proves that he had ample authority to
retaliate. This act refers not only to fish
ing vessels and fish, but to all sorts of
produce and merchandise .carried in ves
sels belonging to the people of the British
dominions of North America. It em
powers the president to "deny entry into
any port or place of the United Stales"
to any railroad depot or warehouse "of
any product of said dominions or other
goods coming from said, dominions."
What more authority could be asked
than is given in the above? Why did not
the president enforce it? Solely, we be
lieve,' .because .he did. not want to act
against the interests of Great Britain.
During the past eighteen months he has
had authority to resent the outrages per-
Ee totted against our fishermen, and now
e comes forward and asks for additional.

' Cleveland and tto free traders seem to
'have .'found an unexpected, airy in tto
person of- Jay .Gould, tto eminent New
York, financier. Mr. Gould announces
-as his opinion that free wool will
benefit rather than 'injure' our man
ufacturers engaged in that' branch, of
industry. -Now if tto 'eminent finan
cier had stopped there hU mere assertion
might tows earried some weight with it,
.but not content to let well' enough alone,
he undertakes to give reasons.
He says: "It will. give, them free of
duty raw material from England and
Australia, where the quality Is very fine,
to mix with the common grades grown
here. If the. wool imported was of equal
grade with ours the effect might to differ
ent, but it is' much superior.
Mr. Gould's reasoning Is. lust about as.
sensible as that of the philosopher who.
cut two holes In his gate for his two cats,
a big hole for the big cat and a little hole
for the kitten. It is true that the wool
now Imported Is of a fine grade, but if we
admit wool' duty free Is it "not obvious
that wool of low grade will rush in upon
us to the destruction of our own wool in
dustry?' Not even Mr. Gould could open
a flood gate to a rushing river and expect
only pure, clear water to como In. It is
the low grade wool that we want to keep
out until we can improve our own clip
and raise our own high grade wools.
.But Mr. Gould.does not know his sub
ject. We raise a great ' deal of high
grade wool, and the domestic product Is
certainly Increasing, being stimulated by
a protective tariff. There are, too, some
low grade, wools imported, of a special
kind, bnt'hot In great quantities.
The manufacturers of wool do not agree
with Mr: Gould New England Is al
most a unit against free, wool, and the
manufacturers may be supposed to know
as much about their own needs as Mr.

It is very singular that the white voters
of the south are in such a state of abject
terror at the designs of tho riegrocs, while
at.tho same time if an actual conflict oc
curs it is always the whites who are tho
attacking party and the negroes who suf
fer. A dispatch; from a town in Louisiana,
for example, says that on armed body of
forty white men left a certain locality and
went to another place to moot some, more
armed whlto men, their purpose being to
proceed to a place known as Long Blues, l
where it Is reported that the negroes have '
armed and mado threats against the wbito J
residents of that neighborhood.
If the colored voters of tho' south are
such a fierce and desperate lot of people, i
It is very strange how suddenly they be
come peaceable about election time, or at
any rate; how little their votes seem to
count in an election. In nineteen con
gressional districts in five southern states
there were, in 1886. about 320,000 colored
votc3, and yet in those nineteen districts
thero was not a singlo Republican vote
registered as havimr been cast. Probablv
tihe negroes mado threats before the elec
tion; that is, threats of voting the Re

they were waited upon by armed white
men and induced to withdraw their
threats, and to be amenable' to the logio
of rifles and shot guns with white men
No wonder the south is solid for Cleve
land, when more than 1,000,000 voters
are as much deprived of the right of suf
frage as if the fifteenth amendment had
never passed; and yet southern Demo
crats keep up the cry of sectionalism, and

rVrk te the Pension OsTtoe.
The present administration has been
guilty of a good many disgusting and out
rageous performances in connection with
an effort to justify its actions before the
people,- hut it has done nothing more
brazenly partisan than to employ the
clerks of the pension department in com
posing a campaign document indorsing
the president's vetoed of pension -bills.
While these clerks haro been at work
compiling figures and making extracts
from certain records of the pension office,
the ordinary business has been permitted
to suffer, and .the work of the office, al
ready far behind, has been suffered to lag
still more. Wo would like to know
whether the United States pay salaries
for the compilation of political documents,
and if so, why the Republicans, the. Pro
hibitionists, or the Labor parties are not
entitled to similar privileges.
The fact that the president or his cam
paign managers feel that a defense is
necessary confirms the Republican asser
tion that the vetoes were unjust. Cleve
land knows that he has never treated tto
soldier with the great regard that he
should. He has no sympathy with him or
his cause. As election day approaches he
hypocritically whimpers for his vote and
converts the pensionoffice into a political
machine, hampering and delaying the
work for which it was established.

most enthusiastic admirers, but here is
the way he talked to a reporter of The
Cincinnati Enquirer, John R. McLean's
able Democratic newspaper:
"I work 700 hands. At tho last election
I set in for Grover Cleveland and used my
best .influences with my men' to accom
plish his election; Now I don't think he
will get a vote out. of the establishment.
Business is hard enough, sir, for these,
.politicians to keep their hands' off it
Give them an inch and they will bo taking.'
an elL Whenever politicians put-their
hands into our business uffairs they do
'nobody, any good, confuse tho times and
render us ..liable to close up and turn' out
our men. Mr. Cleveland has taken the
-'gratuitous pains' to trouble such estab-"
Bailments as mine', and I tliiok we will
remind him' at the election that we"appre
eiato his attention." .

This policy of protecting our industries
never became a party- question until John
C. Calhoun made it such after tho elec
tion of Jackson, in 1828. It was then
that the present Democratic party, under
the leadership of. Calhoun, was reorgan
ized and .based. 00 three distinguishing
ideas or principles.
They were slavery, free trade and se
cession, or nullification, as it was then
called. -Slavery and secession are dead,
and it would be well for us if free trade
were dead also. But it Is not. It has
been revived and' brought forth to be
again battled for in the canvass now cur
rent. While it is a matter of regret that
any considerable number of our fellow
citizens should believe in this doctrine,'
yet on tho other hand. It is to Republi
cans a matter of congratulation that
their Democratic friends havo-at last
openly espoused their own cause, and
that as a consequence tto lines have been
definitely drawn, and tto opportunity
fairly given to win a victory that will
have somo significance. In considering
this question, it should be remembered
that the primary Ides of a protective
tariff Is today just what it was when the
government commenced. Governor For

Free trade .would not open foreign
markets to us.' That is a fallacy, .hatched
in tto colleges and circulated by free
trade fanatics. Foreign countries would
not buy any more of us "under free trade
than they uo now. We have free trade
with Brazil in coffee, yet last vear we im
ported $fi0,000,000worth of coffee, free of
duty, and Brazil only took about $8,000.
OOO worth of 'goods from us. We im
ported $16,700,000 worth of tea, free of
duty, yet China only took about $6,000,
000 worth of goods from us. If
we had free tirade with Great .Bri
tain she would flood this country
with her manufactures sad -not take a
dollar's worth more of our bresdstuffs
than she does now. She only takes any'
of our produce because she has to and she
would not take any more under free trade
than she does under protection. Great
Britain engages in commerce to make
money for herself, not for. other -people.
"The foreign market rot is one of tto worst
fallacies in the .whole 'business. What
we' want to do Is to take care of tto home
market and let foreign markets take ears
of themselves. Minneapolis JoornaL
