lhnritt ea Cleveland' Britiali Sympathies.
President Cleveland's pro-English
sympathies are well known and under
stood in Ireland. Michael Davitt, in a
speech the other day in Wexford, spoke
of "the readiness with which even a man
so favorable to England as Mr. Cleve
land is willing to throw over his pro
English sympathies in order to obtain
an equivalent Irish support for his ad
ministration." The "throwing over" re
ferred to was the recent message, in
which a pretence of an intention to re
taliate upon England was made. That
it was only a pretence and that Cleve
land is not the man to "throw over" his
pro-English sympathies every one who
knows the man and his record knows
sufficiently well. The fact that Cleve
land is recognized in Ireland as "a man
favorable to England" is one which may
well cause Irish-American democrats to
pause and reflect To send "a man fa
vorable to England" to the White House
for another four years is a policy that
would hardly be considered honorable
or safe by the men who founded the Re
publio a hundred years ago, or by the
men who fought twenty-five years ago
for its preservation from an enemy that
received every possible aid and encour
agement from England. Irish World.
The Avenge Reduction Trirk.
There are various ways of playing the
average reduction trick. This is one of
"My bill is not a free trade bill," said
Roger Quixote Mills, prancing around
in a recent speech; "it provides for an
average reduction of only 7 per cent."
"Will the gentleman allow me to ask
him a question?" said a quiet man in
"Your salary as congressman, I believe
is $5,000 a year," stated the quiet man.
"It is," replied the great orator.
"And the president's is $50,000?"
"Making, together, $55,000?"
"Of course" said the great orator, im
patiently. "Now," continued the quiet man, "if
we put you on the free list without dis
turbing the president's pay just as you.
have done with wool without disturbing
rice that would be an average reduc
tion of only a trifle over 9 per cent.
How would you stand that kind of av
"Oh, you go home and soak yo' head,"
felicitously replied the great orator.
Sayiag That Stand.
The democrats are now very busy de
nying the authenticity of certain ex
tracts from London newspapers. One of
these is from the London Times: "The
only time England can use an Irishman
is when he emigrates to -America and
votes for free trade." The denial is now
shut off by Congressman Butterworth of
Cincinnati, who affirms that he -read the
quotation in the London Times a few
years ago." The other is from the Lon
don Spectator: "Grover Cleveland has
done more to advance the cause of free
trade than any prime minister of Eng
land 'has ever done." This having been
given to the public on the authority of
the Hartford Courant, the New York
Evening Post called upon it for a Te-
traction, -remarking in its top-lofty way,
'Nobody pretends that he ever saw the
passage which purports to come from
the London Spectator." To this the Cour
ant replies: '"Why, bless your ignorant
eyes, the Courant copied that from the
Spectator itself as soon as it appeared,
and set it going, and we've got the copy
of the Spectator stQl in the "office.?
The house of representatives is amus
ing its leisure by a consideration of a
trust bill, in which the enormities of
the 'Brooklyn sugar combination are not
forgotten. This is good, but it is to be
hoped that due attention will be also
paid to the workings of various ex
changes, particularly in New York. It
is notorious that the coffee exchange of
that city' forced the price of Bio and
Santos up from eight and nine cents to'
seventeen and eighteen cents, .and held
it there for a year. A 'mere consumer
of-coffee and sugar, fails to see the'
difference between this action and that'
of the Brooklyn sugar trust. 'But .then
J. J.' O'boooghue ex-president of the
coffee exchange, is a devoted adherent
of Qrover Cleveland, and presented ev
ery one of his fellow members with a
Cleveland button early in the campaign.'

GEN. HARRISON TO IRISH -AMERICANS.
. There is no republican campaign liter
ature equal to .that furnished by the
presidential' candidate himself. Mr.
Harrison's great ability and his evident
honesty of purpose are being felt
throughout the country. The Irish
American Club of Cook county, Illinois,
recently visited him, and, in reply to
their address, he said:
Mb. Bbqgs and my Friends of the
xrish-Auerican Republican Club of
Cook Countx: You were Irishmen, you
are Americans cheers, Irish-Americans
continued cheering, and though yon
have given the consecrated loyalty of
your honest hearts to the starry flag and
your adopted country yon have not and
you ought not to forget to love and ven
erate the land of your nativity. Great
applause. If you could forget Ireland,
if you could be unmoved by her min
strelsy, untouched by the appeals of her
splendid oratory, unsympathetic with
her heroes and martyrs, I should fear
that the bonds of your new citizenship
would have no power over hearts so cold
and consciences so dead. Cheers.
What if a green sprig was found upon
the bloody jacket of a Union soldier who
lay dead on Missionary Ridge? The
flag he died for was his flag and the
green was only a memory and an inspira
tion. We, native or Irish born, join with
the Republican Convention in the hope
that the cause of Irish Home Rule, pro
gressing under the leadership of Glad
stone and Parnell cheers upon peaceful
and lawfnl lines, may yet secure for
Ireland that which as Americans we so
much value local Home Rule. Con
tinued cheering. I am sure that you
who have in your own persons or in your
worthy representatives given such con
vincing evidence of your devotion to the
American Constitution and flag and to
American institutions will not falter in
this great civil contest which your
spokesman has so fittingly described.
Who if not Irish-Americans, versed in
the sad story of commercial ruin of the
island they love, should be instructed in
the beneficent influence of a Protective
Tariff? Loud and continued cheering.
Who if not Irish-Americans should be
able to appreciate the friendly influences
of the Protective system upon the indi
vidual and upon the home? Applause.
Which of you has not realized that not
the lot of man only but the lot of woman
has been made softer and easier under
its influence? Applause and "Hear!"
"Hear!" and "That's what's the matter!"
Contrast the American mother and wife,
burdened only with the cares of mother
hood and of the household, with the
condition of women in many of the
countries of the Old World, where she is
also loaded with the drudgery of toil in
the field. Applause. I know that none
more than Irishmen, who are so charac
terized by their deference for women
and whose women have so fitly illustra
ted that which is pure in female charac
ter, will value this illustration of the
good effects of our American system

his early education at the Royal gram

at Magill college in 1849 at the age of 22,

From our regular correspondent.
Senator Allison, in reply to a question
said that the caucus of republican sena
tors which was held on Saturday dis
cussed everything bearing on the "order
of business" of the senate, but that no
thing definite was done in fact, no vote
was taken upon anything. The caucus
was called for the purpose of getting a
general expression of the opin
ions on certain subjects. While no vote
was taken, it was virtually decided that
the tariff bill should be reported after
the hearings of the sugar trust are over;
also, that Senator Sherman's bill against

likewise, the bill to admit Washington
territory as a state.
Senator Plumb today called up his
bill forfeiting certain lands granted to
to the Northern Pacific railroad.
The Chinese government has, by its
rejection of the treaty, recently ratified
by the senate, helped Cleveland out of a
very embarrassing position in regard to
the Chinese exclusion bill just passed
by congress. This bill was prepared by
Representative Scott Cleveland's chum
and was passed by the house in about
thirty minutes, without debate or ob
jection, the day after news of reported
rejection of the treaty reached this
country. Several days later a cable
gram was received from the United
States Minister to China, saying that the
treaty had not been rejected, but its
consideration had been postponed. Mr.
Cleveland and Secretary Bayard then
both took the trouble to repudiate the
action of Mr. Scott in railroading the
bill through the house, both of them
being of the opinion that no legislation
should be taken until the Chinese gov
ernment had taken some official action
on the treaty. The anti-Chinese fever
was too much for the senate, and the bill
was passed by it, though not without
protests. It was placed in Cleveland's
hands Friday, and bets were offered
here that he would veto it, bnt on Sat
urday the official news of the rejection
of the treaty by the emperor of China
was received at the state department
Now, of course, it will be signed. The
treaty having been rejected, some such
law is a necessity, and everybody is in
favor of it, and I only mentioned the
matter to show Cleveland's good luck in
getting out of an embarrassing position.
Senator Chandler will tomorrow ask
the senate to pass his resolution provid

No pension for Mrs. Sheridan will go
through the house at this session. Two
men have made themselves conspicuous
in opposing this measure. They are
'Eilgore, the house bully, an ex-rebel
from Texas, and Cheadle, a copper
head democrat from Indiana, both of
whom have-objected 'in every conceiva
ble manner to the consideration of the
bill giving a pension to the widow of
a Little Phil."
Mr. Eilgore has become & chronic
nuisance. Representative Dougherty,
of Florida, asked unanimous consent of
the house for the passage of a joint res
olution, which had 'already passed the
senate, appropriating $100,000 for the re-'
lief of the yellow fever sufferers. Eil
gore objected, thus preventing the pass
