Treacherous Wnrl : of Kevolntlonlsts.
LONDON , August 21. Authentic dispatches
from Solia show that the disposition of I'rlneo
Alexander of Bulgaiia , was accomplished
diirinu' the night. According to these adVices -
Vices a thoroughly Uusslani/.ed remnant of
cavalry was detained In the city at'tor night
fall when the other troops retired to their
barracks. This regiment , perfectly under
control of the icvolutlonlsts , surrounded the
palace about two hoim past midnldit. The
prince was In bed and thu palace was closed.
The revolutionary leader , with assistance oC
the .soldiers , forced their way Into the build-
lug , went to the prince's ante chamber , and
had nlm amused. They bluntly made known
to him tlio purpose of their intrusion , lie
was stunned , having been taken completely
unawaies. When ho recovered his .self-con
trol and realized the utter helplessness of his
situation he bitterly reproached his captors
for their tioachery.
What followed is still rather obscure the
revolutionists declare Alexander signed a
formal abdication of the throne. Others ,
however , assert lie firmly declined to sign the
abdication and in consequence of his icfusil
he was made a prisoner and confined In a re
mote prison , being told ho would b1 kept
tlierc until he complied with the demand of
the revolutionists. It Is said tlie prince was
lemovod from Solia under a strong cavalry
escort long before day break. The people did
not become acquainted with the tact of the
coup d'etat ' until seveial hours alter the
priuco had been removed from tlio palace.
Telegrams from Widilcn said advices re
ceived there from Uulgarla state there Is
much discontent umong Uulgarian troops
over the change in the government and that
lurgo proportion ot the troops are disposed to
restoie Alexander.

A letter from Prince Alexander , written at
Solia a lew days befoie his deposition , has
been received in this city. In it
Alexander says : "My position is becoming -
coming exceedingly dllHcult. The people
are alarmed nt the Servian armament
and the prcM'iicoot the Turkish commission
ers. In order to reassitiu the people , who
have been worked upon by Hussian op
position , 1 iciniestcd Count Kalnoky three
weeks ago to Induce Servia to
aiireo to resume diplomatic re-
hul ons with Bulgaria. Count
Kalnoky consented , but Servia has not ic-
plied and she has continued so fortify her
frontier , leaving ns to expect n resumption
of hostilities. The ministry have asked to
older an advance of troops , which I have re
fused to do , knowing the serious-
no s of the step in such a case.
Oa the other hand , tlie press attacks mo on
account of thu appointment of delegates to
the Turkish commission. I therefore am
anxious to bo absolutely fieo with regard to
Servia In order that 1 may devote myself
entlicly to the Turkish question. The ex
citement Is so great against the commission
that an attack upon the delegates is protu-
blc. You see how I am beset with troubles.
Nobody heio wishes war. On the contrary ,
we would thank Heaven for n icbtoratlon of
the relations with Servla so that a conflict
might be avoided. "

I'arncll mill GlailNtono Make Strong
Speeches on the AdilroN.s.
LONDON , August at. In the commons to-
light Parnell resumed the debate on the nd-
.Iress in icply to the queen's speech , lie said
the Irish party had every reason to bo satis-
led with the present position. The majority
of the liberal parly had declared In favor of
Irish niilomony. The lories had only prof-
led from temporary liberal hesitation.
After tlio present government had ex hibited
hemselve.s for a year or so , a spectacle for
Hod and man , in the attempt to govern Ire
land , liberal hesitation would vanish. He
said he had only agreed to the adoption of
the land purchase act of lbS. > because he then
believed a settlement of the national ques
tion would come-concurrently , and because
the conservative government hail sent
o 'Ireland Lord Carnanan , who was an
avowed homo ruler. .Now the conditions
wereentlrely changed. Gladstone's puichase
scheme would have safely settled the land
inestlon. If the government thought of
bolvlng the Irish question without settling
the land questions it would liud It had got
hold of tlio wrong end of a very thorny stick.
Pariioll read his amendment to the address
and proceeded. Ho said judicial rents weie
too high , lie accused the government of en
couraging landlords to evict by wholesale ,
knowing agrarian crime always followed
evictions. The Irish would bo patient , but
tlie incitements held out by the landlords ,
who tried to exact impossible rents , would
bear fruit and might produce exasperation.
The landlords would clamor for coercion and
force the government to adopt coercive
measures. He believed coercion would come ,
and very severe coercion , too. In conclusion
he said : "The Irish will never submit to a
government not their own. The question ot
autonomous government will always be fixed
in the heart of the Irish people. " [ Prolonged
cheers ] ,
Gladstone upon rising was loudly cheered.
He began by accusing the government ot
having taken an unusual In going so
far outside of the speech from the throne.
Ho thought the government should have re
served the main line for their measures until
tlie measures themselves could be presented.
He intimated tint ho would take no part In
the division on Parnell's amendment , because
he deprecated any attempt to force a definite
premature expression of opinion on the
policy which tlio government foreshadowed
for their future guidance. Their policy ,
however , was open to remarks. It bore-upon
five different points , namely ; An issue of n
royal commission , the question of miblk
works , land purchase , inquiry Into land
grants , and Iho suDjeet ot local iroveminent.
lie believed tliejgovernmenl's policy was nol
n sober one. but was eminently complex ami
dinicult. Ho described the policy ot tlio gov
ernment ns an absolute Inversion of Hit
liolicy of the late . government. In
stead of giving Ireland self govern
ment , the piesont government proposed thai
Kngland snoiild govern lieland to agrentei
extent that It did at the present time. The
mivcrnmcnt , he continued , evidently in
tended to adopt a lai go scheme of land pur
chase. Was tlio tenant , he asked , to bt
treated upon a basis of real rentable value ol
pioporty and the landlord upon a basis ol
judicial rentV Gladstone maintained thai
there was no ] > ewer within parliament oven
to carry Into effect such a fatal proposition ,
( Cheers.I Ho had been taunted with havlnu
become tlie leader of Irish nationalists , as II
that was a charge against him. But lie wu >
delighted at having any share 01
any part whatever In becoming a leader 01
follower ho did not care which in nnj
movement tending to make smooth the deoj
path of the people ot Ireland , and encourage
them to hope for a realization of their jnsi
rights. ( Cheers. ) Ho feared that tlie policy
now anpounced would Increase the dllllcul
ties which the late government had striven ft
diminish , beausu that policy meant the ad
journment of Ireland's hopes , because li
otVrrod Ireland what she did not want , anil
postponed as long as possible the confirma
tion , wlilch alone would give rest and reposi
to Ireland. ( Cheers. )
It Is understood that Parnell will not pros :
his amendment to a division.

GAI.VHSION , August 'it. The city council
it a meeting last evening appropriated
Sl,000 for tlie benellt of the storm sufferers
of this city. Citizens have subscribed 85,000
'or the same purpose. This will nlford only
iompomry relief , ns over one hunched and
ifty families are rendered homeless and
destitute by the storm.
The storm proved very destructive to small
vessels elf the Texas coast. It will doubtless
bo months before the lull list ot casualties Is
secured. One sloop went to pieces off Pelican - '
can .Island , while another sloop near
ler Is bottom up. The crew of
: wo men is supposed lo liavo
jeon drowned. An unknown vessel and
Ihree schooners are reported ashore or over
turned at different points on the coast. Two
of the crew of one schooner wcro lost and
the crow of another is supposed also to liavo
iieen loit All small craft In the bav from
Shoal to J-Mwnrd's point are reported lost.
A lumber schooner went to nieces in the bay
nnd her captain and cook weie drowned.
It is roimhly estimated that the damage done
to shipping in this vicinity during the storm
will approximate S100.0UO. The village of
Oninlana at the mouth of tlie Brazes river
was entirely swept away and two schooners
driven ashore. No lives were lost so far ns
known. Indlanola is a complete wreck.
Not more than three or four houses escaped
destruction by the heavy storm. A neuro
woman and two children won ) drowned.
Nearly all the cattle and sheep on the island
were drowned.
A special to the News from Victoria says :

that of kidnapping Aresures when ho was

National Innues Discussed.
LAKI : Sr.n.uio , Me. , August 34. James (5 ,
Blaliic arrived hero from Bar Harbor this
morning to deliver the opening address of
tlie campaign at the republican mass meeting
held hero. His speech In substance was ns
follows :
fellow Citizens : A new administration of
the national government Is usually unvexcd
In Its lir.-t year except by the Importunities
and the disappointments of Its own support
ers. The people nl large irlvo .small heed lor
the time to public allulrs nnd the discussion
of political 'SMIBS ' Is left as a somewhat per
functory late ! opposing partisans In con-
tress. This period of popular Inaction Is
thus not only advantageous for rest , but It
prepares those who nro the ultimate arbiters
In all matters of pliblleconcorn togivo patient
hearing to fair argument when tlio time
arrives for popular discussion.
Have the old differences between tlio re
publican and democratic organisations been
adjusted , or have they grown moio palpable
and moro pronounced'.1 Ale the questions
over which the republicans and Ihu demo
crats have waged a long contest to be now
abandoned ? Is llrigatlon In the court of pub
lic opinion lobe discontinued ami a settle
ment effected by entering "neither party" on
the people's docket ? Or , on the oilier hand ,
do the American people just now begin to
see with clearer vision the alms and inten
tions , the method * nnd the measures of each
party , and arcthev waking to a new ami
more earnest struggle over politics that are
irreconcilable , over measures tnat are in
herently nnd inevitably in eonlllct ? " Let us
inquire of those things In a spirit of candor !
It Is In the lirst place especially worthv of !
observation that in the history of Industrial
questions no party In time of peace has ever
been more united In support of a policy than
Is life republican in support of a protective
tariff to-day. At the late session of coneress
n measure known as the Morrison tarilf bill ,
designed to lirst weaken and ultimately de
stroy the protective policy , was resisted oy so
compact an organization ot the republican
members that a single vote from New York
and two or three votes from Minnesota were
all that broke the absolute unanimity of the
On the other hand , the vast majority of the
democratic members supported the free trade
side ol'tlio question ; but a small minority ,
uniting with the republicans , found them
selves able to defeat the measure.
These leading tacts indicate that the
policy of protection versus free trade Is an
issue shaped and determined no longer by
sectional preference but lias become general
and national affording a distinct , well
markedliueotdlvision between tlio repub
lican and democratic paities.
The hostility of tlie democratic party to
piotectiou has entailed upon the country a
vast loss and has In many ways obstructed
the progress and development of certain sec
tions. Since the financial panic of 173 and
the contemporaneous solidiiicatlon of the
southern vote , thu democratic party lias , witli
the exception of n single congiess ,
held control of tht ) house of representatives.
The power to originate revenue bills lias
been exclusively iiy.thgir'liandsaud they have
used it to tlio confusion , the detriment , In
many instances to ; ih&destruction of new en
terprises throughout the union. " 'Confidence '
once shaken"la { lard to restore , and tlio
schemes of Improvement which have been
abaudoiied-withln the past ten years on ac
count of the uncertainty of our revenue laws
constantly menaced by the democratic party
In congress would have caused prosperity and
happiness In many communities which'hare ,
felt tlio discouraging influence of dull tithes.
The democratic party is constantly using
the. comparative dullness in business , which
their own course In congress for twelve
years has largely developed , as an argument
against the policy of protection. But it is
worth while to compare the condition of the
country in this year of grace with Its condi
tion the year before the republicans suc
ceeded in enacting their first protective tarilf.
In the nine states which still do the larger
amount ot manufacturing for tlie country ,
and which did it nearly all n quarter ot o
century ago , It is Interesting and Instruntlvn
to compare their financial conditions ut'the
beglnningof ISGlaudut the beginning of 1803.
The states referred to are the six of New Eng
land with New York- . Now Jersey nnd Penn
sylvania. In 1801 the country pre
sented a condition brought about by nearly
auenlire generation of free trade , and the
aggregate amount which the people had ac
cumulated in their savings banks during
that long penou was less than one hundred
and sixty millions of dollars. In the same
states on the lirst day of Januafy , isec , the
aggregate amount in tlio savings banks was
over one thousand and twenty millions of
dollars. The difference in the amount of
savings in Maine for tlie two periods show
that in January , 1BG1 , tlio people had less
than a million and a half in bank , while In
January , 1BSU , the people had over thirty-six
millions in bank. \
During this perloiHt must be remembered
that the increase of population In the nlno
states has been about 45 per cent. , while .tho
Increase of deposits In savings banks has
been at the rate of bOO per cunt.
it must bo remembered that 75 per cent , of
this vast sum belongs to the wage-workers.
The vast number of depositors may bo In
ferred from the fact that In Maine , whore the
aggregate population is less than 700,000 , the
SJo.OOO.OOOofdeposltsarodivIded between 110-
1)00 ) persons , showing that about one In six of
the total population Is u depositor , and that
the average to each Is about three hundred
and twenty dollars.
The figures with wtilch wo arc dealing have
been coniliicd to the nine states named be
cause in 1801 the manufacturing done in this
country was mainly confined to those states ,
liut the thousand millions of savings by the
workers within their borders become still
more significant , as an ecoiiomie fact , when
wo remember that since IWH the great body
of northwestern states under the Inspiring
influences of a protective tariff have in turn
developed an eiiqrmousaggregation of manu
facturing Industries. Ohio , Indiana , Michi
gan , Illinois , Wisconsin , are nd longer de
voted to agriculture solely , but have a mass
of manufacturing lijdnstrles larger In negro-
cato value than sd ( ttuo manufactures In nil
the states of tlie ujtlon on the day Mr. Lin
coln was tirst Inniurprated.
And yet another comparison may bo made
Btlll more embarrus < i | > K to the free trade doe-
triiiarieannd-MorotUlncult for them to an
swer. While the American workmen InK

number of working men In Knglnud , Ire

Kingdom , nil , work i\fi \ under free trade have
less than four bund tjil millions of dollars in

are the most persuasive of arguments and the
conclusion tjiey tc.yh Is so plain that the

The lending fuatijro in the industrial field
Of 1SS.1 and ISSQ In thu discontent among the
men who earn theirbread by skilled and un
skilled labor. Uneasiness and uncertainty
are found on all aides ; there are wise alms
among many-ami with not a lew there Isuiin-
lessness witli its Inevitable result ot ills-
appointment and discouragement , The man
who could by any prescription remove this
discontent and at once restore harmony and
happiness , would bo philosopher , patriot and
statesman. Thoiuan who professes to bo
able to do it will generally prove to be a
compound of empiricism and Ignorance. liut
in the end , perhaps by .toilsome paths , with
many blunders and some wrongs , noone need
doubt that bound nnd just arid righteous con
clusions wll | be reached , 1'erfect fieedom
to test the virtues andseyyre the advantage
of organisation , to ewt strong power
throush combination , are certainly among
the common rights o ( all men under a repub
lican government. Labor asioelattons have
tliuhaniu sanction nnd the same rights that
uy form of incorporation may assuiue-sub-
jcct , as all mint be , tn the condition that the
persons and properly of other * shall bo re
spected. It Is well lor every citizen of a free
go\crnment to keep before bis eyes nnd In
his thoughts the honored nmlm that "the
liberty of one man IIIIIMI always end where
the rights of another man begin. "
In what may bo termed the imlittiMl creed
of the various lalmr organizations I have ob
served some singular omlmlous of poillnont
and 1 think fact1--fuels which
, ns , coutiolling * - -
In n spirit of friendship and candor 1 beg to
point out , 1 read , it lew ilays slneo. In a
creed put forth by an association of Knights
of Labor , In another st".t" , a lecital of eigh
teen distinct ends which they
desired to have secured or
maintained by national legislation. Among
these theio was not the slightest mention of
n protective tariff. That might have been ac
cidental torolt might have Implied a per
fect sense of safety In regard to tlie continu
ance of the taiIff ; or It might have meant
that those who proclaimed the creed are In
different to the tatc of protection.
In any event It would bo well for the labor
organizations to diligently Impute and 'cer
tain how the wages of labor In the United
Stales can be kept above the rate of wages In
England , Germany and Franco on the same
articles of manufacture will.out the Interven
tion of protective duties. With the present
cheap modes of Interchange and transporta
tion of all commodities , 1 Inquiio of these
gentlemen how , under the rule of free trade ,
can wages In the United States be kept above
the general standard of European wages V I
do not stop for the detail of argument , 1 only
desire to lodge the question In the minds of
the millions ot Amei lean laborers who have
it in their power to maintain protection or to
Inaugurate free trade ; who have it in their
power to uphold the party of protection or the
party of fiee trade.
Another portontious fact has been omitted
so far ns I have observed- from the consid
eration and judgment of labor organizations.
They seem to have taken little or no heed of
the existence of more than a million and a
half of able bodied laborers in thcsoiith , with
dark skins , but with expanding Intellect , in
creasing Intelligence and growing ambition.
While these men were slaves , working in the
corn and cotton Holds. In the rice swamps
nnd on the sugar plantations In the south , the
skilled labor of the northern states felt no
competition from them , liut since they be
came freemen there has been a great chaiigo
in the variety and skill of the labor performed
by colored men In the south. The great mass
nro , of course , still encaged In agricultural
work , but thousands and tens of thousands ,
and in fact hundreds of thousands , have en
tered and nro entering the mechanical and
semi-mechanical Hold.
Of course they are underpaid. They re
ceive far less than has bean paid in years nast
to northern mechanics for&lmilar work. They
are able to take no part in making laws for
their own protection , and they are consequently
quently and inevitably unable to maintain a
lair standard of wages or to receive a fair
proportion ot their proper earnings.
1 do not dwell on tills subject at length ,
though it could easily be presented in aggra
vating detail. 1 mention it only to place it
before the labor organizations of the noith ,
with tills question addressed to them : Do
you suppose that you can permanently main
tain in the noithern states one scaloof prices
when just beyond an imaginary line on
the south of us a far ditfeicnt scale ot prices
is paid for labor'.1 The colored mechanic of
the south is not so skillful a workman nor so
Intelligent a man as you are , but If he will
lay brick in a new cotton factory in South
Carolina at half the price you are paid , if he
will paint and plaster It at the same low rate ,
he is inevitably eriicting an industry which.
11 the same rate of wages bo maintained
throughout , will brlve you out f business or
lead you to the irates of his own poverty.
The situation is , therefore , plainly dfscern-
able and demonstrable , viz : First If tlie
democratic party shall succeed , as they have
been annually attempting for twelve years
past , in destroying the protective tariff , the
urtlsaus ot the United States will be thrown
into direct competition with tlie highly
skilled and miserably paid labor of Europe.
Second If the democratic party shall bu
ublo to hold control of the national govern
ment , , the qolored laborer in the southern
states will'remain when ; the southern demo
crats have placed him politically , subject to
the will of the white man , and unable to fix
the price or command the value of his labor.
The colored man will , theiefore , under these
conditions and influences , remain a constant
quantity In the labor market , receiving in-
adtmiatu compensation for his own toll , and
steadily crowding down the compensation of
white labor , if not to his own level yet far be
low its just and adequate standard.
At every turn , therefore , whether it bo in
exposing the white American laborer to the
danger of European competition by destroy
ing the protective tariff , or whether it bo in
reducing the wages of the white man by un
fairly making the colored laborer his fatal
competitor , In all the fields of toll the demo
cratic party north and south appears as the
chmny of every interest of the American
workmen. With that party placed In full
pbVor and with all Its measures achieved , the
wages of tjie American laborer will fall as
certainly as effect follows cause.
The fishen-dlsnutu between the United
States nnd ( Britain has passed through
many singuhir phases In ttio last seventy
years , but never before , I think , was It sur
rounded with such extraordinary circum
stances as we find existing at tills moment.
On.tlio 31st day of January , 15 ( , several
months before the fishing season of that year
began. President Arthur Issued a proclama
tion giving notice to the people that the fish
ery articles of the treaty of Washington
(1671) ( ) had , according to the conditions of the
treaty , been formally terminated. This
termination of the treaty had been decreed
by an overwhelming vote ot both branches
of congress and was now nrndo final and
effective by tlie president's proclamation.
This course had been earnestly desired by
the American fishermen , was fully under
stood by them and was completed without
protest from n single citi/.cn of the United
i'lve weeks after President Arthur's pro
clamation was issued his term closed , and
with the new administration Mr. Uayard be
came secretary ot state. In three or four
days after ho had been installed In nfllco the
British minister. Hon. Sackvillo West , sub
mitted a proposition to continue the recipro
cal lUliing arrangements until January 1 ,
Ibbfl. After a brief correspondence Mr ,
liayard accepted the offer. In other words ,
Mr. West and Mr. Bayard made a treaty of
their own by which American fishermen were
to bo allowed to fish in British waters six
months longer , and Hrltish fishermen should
freely lisli In American waters for the same
It would certainly be apart from my desire
to pass any personal criticism upon the piesi-
dent , of wnom I wish at all times to speak in
terms of respect , but , viewing this as n pub
lic question and speaking only with the free
dom of a private citizen , I must express my
be ttiat this transaction throughout
most extraordinary nnd unprecedented. It
was extraordinary and unprecedented nnd
altogether beyond his proper power for a
secretary of state In the recess of congress to
revive any part of a treaty which congiess
had expressly terminated ; It was oxtraoidi-
nary for a secretary of state to begin nego
tiations for the renewal of a treaty which
every department of government had just
united in annulling ; U was extraordinary
for n secretary of state to enter into
n trade with a foreign minister tor n pies-
cut benefit to be paid for by the fiituioaction
of thu government , and most of all was
It extraoidlnury that a pledge should be given
to a foreign government that the president
of the United States should in the tutnre
more than a halt year distant make a specific
recommendation , on a specific subject , In
specific words to the congress of the United
States. That pledge was given and was held
in the British toreign otlico in London , and
It took Irom the president all the power of
rccoiihidcrntlon which the lapse of time and
thu change of circumstances might suggest
nnd impose. It robbud the president pro hue
vice of his liberty ns an executive. Jle was
no longer free to Interest In his annual mes
sage ot December what mluht then seem ex
pedient on the question of the fisheries , but
was under honorable obligations to Insert
word lor word , letter tor letter , the exact
recommendation which the hecietary of Mate
in the preceding mouth of June had promised
ami pledged to the British ministry ,
Congress could not be Induced to concur In
the president's recommendation for an Inter
national commission on the fisheries , and KO
the sctiemo for which Mr , Hayard and Mr.
West had made bucli extraordinary prepara
tions came to naught.
As soon its U became evident that congress
would not accept the proposal for a new com
mission , the government of tlie Dominion of
Canada , with the presumed approval ot the
Imperial government , began aterles of out
rages upon American fishing vessels and
IHiing crews seeking In evcrv wav to de
stroy their business and to deprive them ot
their fishing rights. Their course continues
to this day and Is adopted by the Canadian
government with the deliberate Intention
ami obvious expectation of forcing conces
sions from this government ,
The humiliation of our situation has been
cratintouslv Incioased by the voln of a
nujoilt ) of thu democratic paity In thr house
of u prcsontatlvo to throw open the markets
of the I'nlted States to British and Canadian
fishermen , without duty or charge and with
out securing to American iiuermon the right
to lisli In British and Canadian waters. Tills
Is an act ot such unaccountable , rancorous
hostility to the fishing Interests of New
England that It Isdillh'ult even to compre
hend Its motive. John Itaudolph so hated
the wool tin UT that he felt like walking a
mile to kick n sheep. Do the noithern dem
ocrats fool such determined hostility to the
fishermen of New England that they would
sacriilce n great national interest In order to
Inflict a blow upon them' . '

Another International trouble has increased
our sense of chagrin and humiliation. In
contrast with our patient endurance of Cana
dian outrage towards American lishctmcn ,
we have made nti unnecessary and undigni
fied display of insolence nnd bravado towards
Mexico. There Is no adequate cause for the
demonstration. I do not stop at this point
to narrate the precise facts attending the ir.i-
prlsonmont of Mr. Cutting. I know that \\o
cannot without loss of character for honor
and chivalry tu-gin our negotiations with
threats of war. 1 maintain that when thu
United States agreed to accept nibltintlon
as the means of adjusting our grave dif
ficulties with Knglaiuf we came under bonds
to the public opinion of the world to
offer nibitratlon to any weaker power as
the moans ot settling difficulties in all cases
whore wo cannot adjiHt thorn by direct ne
gotiation. If wo are not willing to accent
that conclusion we place ourselves In the dis
reputable attitude of accepting arbitration
with a strong power anil resorting to force
with a weak jowcr. ) I am MHO no Ameilcan
citizen of self-respect desires to see Ills coun
try subjected to that destiadation. Kor thu
United States to attack Mexico without giv
ing her an opportunity to be heard bcfoie an
Impartial tribunal of arbitration would be
for a great nation of unlimited power to put
herself to open shame befoie the world.
There could not , fellow-citizens , in my
judgment , be n moro deplorable event than a
war between the United States and any
other republic of America. The United
States must bo regarded as the elder sister In
that family of commonwealths. Even in the
day of our weakness wo gave aid and com
fort to them in their struggle tor Independ
ence , and let us not fall now to cultivate
friendly and Intimate relations with them.
Kofrainlng from war ourselves wo shall gain
the Inllueiice that will enable us to prevent
war among them , so that peace shall bo as
sured and perpetual on this continent , War
In any direction would piove a great calam
ity to tlie United States , but war forced on
Mexico would be n crime , marked In an es
pecial degiec by cruelty.

Referring to the third partv movement In
Maine , Mr. Blalne concluded as follows :
The supporters of the third party adopt ns
their shibboleth that "the republican party
must bo killed , " and they have secured the
co-operation of- the democrat , of the free
trader. of the saloon proprietor , of all men
who wish to keep six millions of colored peo-
in the south disfranchised and oppressed.
t is an insincere coalition , an unnallowcd
paitnerslilp. an unholy alliance. Against It
tlie republican party of Maine presents its
uniform support of prohibition , Its splendid
lecord ol devotion to tlie protection of Ame
rican labor , its long and patient elfoit In
behalf of those who are down-trodden and
deprived of natural rights. Tlie republican
party lias always fought its battles single-
handed , against great odds , and now with
principle untarnished ami courage undaunted
it will again triiAnptj over the combined force
of all Its , foes. . .
To. .Remove the Apaches .
WASHINGTON , August 24. There is no
longer any reasonable doubt but that the gov
ernment has fully decided to permanently
remove from the territory of Arizona those
members of the Clilrlcaliuaand Warm Spring
bands of Apaches now on San Carlos reser
vation. The only important question now
Is said to bo where they shall bo located. It
Is stated that the detention at Fort Leaven-
worth. Kan. , of Chief Chatto and his dozen
companions , who were returning to their res
ervation from a visit to Washington , and
who , as well ns Gerominoandliisband ot icn-
egades. belong to the Chiricahmis , was
ordered , as a precaution against their
anticipated bitter opposition to the scheme
of removal. It is also stated that the presi
dent lias glvon his willing consent to the
change , and has placed the details in thu
hands of Secretary Lamar nnd ( iencral
Sheridan , and that ho warmly approves of
the vigorous policy of ( ieneral Mffes. The
peace of the southwest demands that the
hostilcs should be pursued until captured or
exterminated , and Gcronlmo , when cap
tured should bo punished as other perpo-
tiators of high crimes nre punished.

of the Day's Work.
Dr.s MOINI : * , la. , August -Special [
Telegram to the llii : : . ] The Indications ot
to-morrow's meeting now point to one of the
largest and most enthusiastic conventions
over held In the state. The anlvaN to-night
Included Senator Allison. Congressmen Hen
derson , of Dnbuquc , and Htrublc , of l.e.Mars ;
Ex-iovcrnor ( ! ear and many ot the old
leadeis of the p.uty. One of the lu-st signs
about this year's convention Is tlie laigo
number uf old wliecl-luirscs oftho | p.iity who
nre to take part tn It. It seems like one ot
the old-time Iowa conventions and It will In
clude many of the mm , who for the last few
years have not been very enthusiastic
over the icpubllcan party , but two yeais
of a democratic administration have warmed
up the old fires and turned them toward their
first love. There will be no dllletanfl tone to
Iowa republicanism as It shall bo set forth
to-morrow. Every republican hern has his
lighting clothes on , .so to speak , nnd repub
lican enthusiasm runs high. As one of the
lirst republican states to hold n convention
this year , the Iowa republicans propose to
sound a key-note that will not bu mistaken ,
so the utterances ot the platform tire likely
to have a very slnlwait llavor ,
Talk witli various delegates shows that
they generally favor striking straight out
from the shoulder , and they intend that the
administration , even In the recesses of the
Adlroudacks , shall know what Iowa repub
licans think of Its work. On the subject
of pension vetoe the platform will probably
speak very plainly , lor Iowa republicans
have very warm feelings for Union soldiers ,
80,000 of whom went fiom this state to put
down the rebellion. On the temperance
question no advance ground will bo taken.
It Is generally thought the republican party
has given the prohibitionists all the Itgisla-
tlon that leason could a k , and if piohibition
is over to be enloiced it must be with thu
laws that hive already been clvon. Thiro
will bu no lichton tills subject and no nt-
lompt will be made to aggravate or ulicnato
Iho anti-prohibition republicans , who hava
borne a great deal In the past anil
yet stayed true to the paity. There may bo a
resolution on the subject of senatorial back
pay , referring to the Impeachment tiial , but
if there is it will condemn back-pay and
double-pay , and excuse no one who toolc
more than what a strict and high minded
construction of the constitution would allow.
Iowa republicans are getting on thtir mettle
nnd propose to have no moie strife or dlssen-
tlous , but bury differences In a light against , a'
common foe , so the convention jiioiiiises to
bo unusually harmonious. Theonly possible )
bone of contention is the question of admit
ting the Anderson delegates from Kiemont
county. Indications point to the nomina
tion or Beardsley as auditor , though Lyons
and Peck crowd on his heels. All the
other state officers will probably bo rcnoml-
nated. _
