LONDON , August 27. fNow York Herald
Cable Special to Tun BCD. ] I send you
extracts of Iho editorials made from the Lon
don papers on the president's message. You
can see that there would ho small likelihood
of his being presented with the freedom of
the city of London were ho to visit England ,
nor would ho bo lecoived with the same so
ciability now that was accorded to Mr.
Blalno. The Standard says :
"Tho rejection of the fisheries treaty by
the republican senators Is n tame and feeble
mode of attacking Canada compared with the
vigorous scheme propounded by the
democratic president. It is a docu
ment that can hardly fall to
Imbittcr the relations between Canada
mid the Utlltcd States , and embarrass still
further the untiring efforts of this country to
secure an adjustment of their trade differ
ences. In any case it is to bo observed that
Mr. Cleveland's ' treatment of the subject ,
hnrsh and unconcilintlng as It appears on
the surface , is in reality both moro statis
tical and more statesmanlike than that of
divers of his advisers. Though ostensibly
his policy is animated by the most aggressive
nationalism , It is in fact much less danger
ous to International concord. By shifting
the con II let from sea to land he
removes it from the arena where passion
runs highest , where violence is less easily
restrained , and where nn accident or a single
net of Indiscretion might most easily pre
cipitate a catastrophe. Looking about him
for the likeliest weapons to piomote this re
sult , ho finds that there exists a privilege of
transit in. bonds , iiuty free , acioss United
States territory of Canadian exports
nnd imports , and it Is calculated
that within six years $370,000,000
worth of goods liable to duty under
tno United States tariff have been thus car
ried Into and out of Canada. It is hardly
nccessrnry to point out that tills measure , 11
it is really to bu put in operation , must be
very injurious to the commercial interest of
The London Times says : "By a sudden
change of front the president holds hlnlsell
out ns an advocate of something hugely
udmlrcd by American voters , n spirited
foreign policy. But whllo Mr. Cleveland
dexterously annexes nil the honor and glor.v
which ffi America aio associated will
twisllng the lion's tall , ho has niunagcc
so that his opponents can be saddled 'with ul
the odium of the proposed reprisals. Tin
president , it turns out , had something bettei
than Idle lamentation in store. Accepting
unreservedly the vote of the senate , ho hat
completely dished the republican party bj
pronouncing for a retaliation far more tlior
ough and severe than the partisans of Blalm
nnd Harrison ever ventured or thought It nee
cssary tosuggcst.Tho mother country has sup
ported the colony throughout the controversy
nnd will assuredly not discontinue that sup
port now. Hitherto retaliation , ns proposed
by the republicans , has been limited to tin
exclusion of Canadian fishlug vessels fron
Maine ports , but these . .reprisals nro no
enough for Mr. Cleveland , who asks powei
to put nn end to the privilege now enjoyed b ;
Canadians of transporting goods In bom
across the American territory. "
The London Telegraph says : "Mr. Clove
land's entire communication Is conceived Ii
what would appear to bo a spirit o
most uncompromising hostility. The com
petition between the chief magistrate and hi
political opponent * may be ono of a pure ) ,
chauvinistic order. The object may bo t
impress on the American public that ho ca :
bo oven more patriotic than the republicans
nnd that if it comes to a contest of spread

PAIIIS , August 27. [ Now York Hera
Cable Special to TUB BEE. ! The Brill
press returns this morning to utlackli
President Cleveland. For , iustanco t'
Morning Post editorially says : "In his an
lety to dish the republicans President Clcv
laud has somewhat overshot the mark 1
proposing retaliatory measures which coi
only bo accomplished through a violation
treaty obligations. "
The Dally News thus begins aa editorli
headed "American Retaliations" "T
president's extraordinary message is still ,
Well it may be the principal topic of politic
discussion , both lu Canada and the Unit
States. It Is difficult to understand how ai
ono can seriously believe the first man in t
United States is sacrificing the interests
his country co a fit of temper or dlsorgautzli
the trade of the continent as a mere move
the party game. " Later on in the editor
it observes : "Perhaps the presldi
thinks that a threat will bo enough. If
ho will bo undeceived by the tone of the Cc
ndlan press ; but a policy of menace is n
dignified"End it never succeeds twice , " A
Rgnln ! "It la Interesting to observe that t
Toronto Mail takes the opportunity to <
mand absolute free trade , by which It c
dently means a customs union betwc
Canada and the United States. When A
Chamberlain was In Canada ho very tmpi
flcntly and improperly attacked this schoi
with which as a diplomatist ho had noth
to do , and declared dogmatically that
would lend to the separation of Canada from
the British empire. It would be n strange
nnd Ironical stroke of fortune If Mr. Cham
berlain , who passes as nn ardent imperialist ,
should have Indirectly contributed by his
recklessness and rancor to detach the Do
minion from the soverolgulty of the queen. "
ANGHY AT CRISPI.
The Frcnoh 1'reHS llnHn Small Opinion
of Italy' * Premier.
lOimirtulit Iffirtbi ; Jitinr i Gordon /frmirtt. ]
PAIHS , August 27. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the BKE. ] The anger
aroused by Crlspi's trip to Germany has
been succeeded by a general feeling of rather
Ravage contempt. It finds free utterance in
countless articles which have appeared in
both Purls nnd London. Among others is
ono in the Figaro , signed "Whlsl , " giving
anything but a nattering recount of the
Italian premier and quoting Lord Holland's
familiar saying about the fatuous arrogance
of self-made men. The writer raps Crispl
sharply over the knuckles for his disregard
of ordinary diplomatic civility shown in his
Mussuwuu notes to the French government.
"Crispl , " ho says , "confounds diplomacy
with law. In fact , whllo liu-imaglncs himself
a Talleyrand ho remains u Uuzfuz. Crispl
owes his rise to Iho prodigious luck
of having been minister of the
Interior Just when his colleague
nnd old foe , Doprotes , was compelled by
deatli to vacate the consulln. On the death
of the foxy statesman , ho became not only
premier , but ad Interim minister of foreign
affairs , and though ho professed regard and
dandles It us temporary , ho has stuck to his
dignity like Lord Salisbury in England ever
since to sustain his crushing role. However ,
Crispi had to find u friendly backer. He
found him in Bismarck.
"Strong in the strength of his pretended
intimacy with Prince Bismarck , " aavs
"Whist , " "ho turned to Franco in an airy way
and remarked , 'Shall we have to talk now
about that treaty of commorcol' "
Then the treaty fizzles out nnd the Masso-
wah incident crops up later. Ho tries to get
England to guarantee Iho balance of power
in the Mediterranean by causing the cry that
Franco was threatening Italy. When the
trick was discovered , ho discovered
Franco meditated resorting to the
temporal power of the pope. Incoherence
and tactlessness have marked out the recent
policy of Crispi. As "Whist" remarks , "He
makes diplomacy a sport and lives on it.
May ho die of it. "
A writer in the Republican of Paris im
proves on this by likening Crispl to a yelping
doif. "If Bismarck thinks the time has come
to fight us , " sava he , "lot him com o and saj
so , but don't let him hound on his Tiszas and
CnspU. Wo don't understand then
Another writer , signing "X" in Matin.
adds his words to the disdainful chorus ;
"Crispt says ho has received his muster's
verbal instructions and has left Frlederlchs-
ruho. We shall despise his impertinence ns
we have despised his direct provocation , and
wo shall continue to prepare for war , which
Bismarck will bo forced to declare or have
declared ugainst us , for only i
lucky war can enable German-
lo perpetuate tl.e state of things created bj
the French defeat of 1871. Gorman unity li
a monstrosity which enfeebled Europe has
endured too long. I , , the end she wouli
break It. Germany knows that well , hcne <
war is inevitable. Can any ono believe lhat
Europe , which refused to submit 19 the san-
guinnry , but splendid glory of the first Na
poleon , will bow forever beneath the weight
of the German ferule and goon ruining it
self m armaments , because two mea , Wil
liam I. and BistnircK , have thought fit to
buildP up the Gorman empire for the bcneil
of the Prussian monarchy I But , wo repeat
Franco will not declare war. Public opinioi
is unanimous on that point.
A visit to Frlodcricksruho nnd Egcr was
perhaps , only another proof of the fovorish-
notto say fussy disposition of Iho Itnliai
premier. It is perfectly clear nothing ha
been done nt Friodoricksruho to destroy tin
compact existing between Germany , Aus
tria , Hungary nnd Italv. The czar may havi
exhibited revived Inclination to cultivat
friendly and intimate relations with Germany
many , which would cause Prince Blsmarcl
to fool that his hands were less tied thai
heretofore. The tone of the official press utterances
torancos In Vienna nro happily reassurinf
Urispi has lost his thunder. Even if
meant mischief it could do llttlo harm t
. Franco. Ills bark , most Frenchmen think

A Powerful Organization Said to hn
Fighting the Catholic Church.
MiNNr.Aroi.ig , Minn. , August 27. [ Special
to Tun Br.r. . ] It Is said that for some time
past the representatives of n new anti-Roman
Catholic political organi/atton have been
quietly nt work about Minneapolis , but owing
to the extreme secrecy of the order but llttlo
can bo ascertained regarding It except that its
avowed object is to prevent the Catholics
from exlcnding Ihclr political power In this
country. It is claimed by those who nro
working up Iho membership hero Hint the or
ganization is national and has a tremendous
total membership , that In Minneapolis alone
there nro 8,000 names on the rolls , and that
the order Is so powerful In Chicago that it
practically controlled the lust election there.
In St. Paul , according to this report , less
rapid progress has been made , that town
having n larger percentage of Catholic popu
lation. In Minneapolis u great many leading
politicians nro claimed to bo pushing Iho or-
gunlzulion , but the majority of the members
arc not prominent. When approaching pros
pective members the agents of the orgmilza-
lion first sound them as to their religious be
lief nnd convictions , nnd if found satisfac
tory present a card bearing eight questions ,
submitted "in view of the intolerant , persist
ent , aggressive efforts of the Uomaniststhcir
evident determination to control the govern
ment of the United States and to destroy our
civil religious liberty. "

Join the society , ho Is sworn to support prin
ciples even moro radical in their nature. It
having been rumored that Mayor Ames was
connected with this organization ho was approached
preached to-day and questioned on the sub
ject. He said : "I aid not go to Chicago and
receive any appointment in connection with
this orgunlFatlon. I am willing to take nn
oalh that I am in no way connected with such
nn orgnni/ation , either as an officer or mem
ber. The object in starting this rumor is ap
parent. It is an effort to unite the Irish and
Catholics for political purposes. "
TheCongressional Committee Com
mences Work in Boston.
BOSTON , August 27. The congressional
immigration investigation committee com
menced its work hero to-day. Mr. Wright-
ington , superintendent of the poor , testified
that the increase in lunacy in the state was
du ) to immigration. Fully 250 paupers , as-
sislod hero by the Luke society , have been
sent baclc. Much trouble bus been caused by
the Russian Jews , who were the worst class
of immigrants. The present law is not suffi
cient. There should bo Inspectors across tno
water. Ono way of preventing the immig ra
tion of convicts would bo to compel every alien
to uiukd oath that for six months or n year
ho had not been confined in any instllutiou.
Out of 47,000 emigrants who came to this
port last year 1,000 were under contract , nnd
the witness favored a tax of $10 per head.
This might stop immigiution to some extent.
The time has como when immigration has
ceased to bo of any benefit to this country.
E. A. Colcord , commissioner of immigra
tion , said Ihut the Germans and Scandina
vians went west , while the Irish remained in

WASHINOTOX , D. C. , August 27. )
President Cleveland sent to the scnnto this
nftoinoon n veto of the bill making appropri
ation for the construction of a public building
ut Sioux City. The president says : "On
the 19th day of June , 18 0,1 was constrained
to disapprove ) n bill embracing the same sub
ject covered by the bill herewith returned.
Further Investigation on this second presen
tation of the matter falls to convince mo that
$150,000 should bo expended at present tor
the erection of a public building at Sioux
City. From all the representatives that are
made In an effort to show the necessity for
this building , I gather that the only two pur
poses for which the government should fur
nish quarters at this place nro n term of the
United States court not specially cron'drd
with business , and the postollico , which ,
though perhaps crowded , I am sure can get
on very well for a time without n largo pub
lic building. As far as the court house is con
cerned , it was agreed when n terra was
located there m 1SS2 that it might bo held In
the county building , which , from the de
scription furnished mo , seems to bo entirely
adequate for the purpose and very well ar
ranged. The term hold.in October 1887 , was
in session for nine days. I nm decidedly of
the opinion that If a pub'lic building is to bo
located at Sioux City It had bpttor bo de
layed until a bettor Judgment can bo formed
of Its future necessity and proper size.
"I sco some of the parties Interested have
such confidence in the growth and coming
needs of the plnco that in their opinion the
work ought not to bo entered upon with a
loss approuriation than $500,000. "

letler to Mr. Burns on the subject of timber

THE i'KIiSIOENT'S POLICY.
It In Made the Subject of _ Hliort
Hppocli bjr Blnlno.
JVATKKVILLT : , Mo. , August 27. Mr. Blnlno
nddrcs.icd an audience- about two thousand
bore this afternoon In the open air , but made
only n short speech , owing to hoarseness. Ho
addressed himself to the workingmcn especi
ally , dwelling upon the Injury which would
bo done them should the president's tariff
policy bo curried Into effect. Mr. Blnlno then
referred to President Cleveland's message
uion the treaty as a mere scheme to divert
the attention of the American people from the
question of protection , and to stop popular
discussion of that subject , which ho feared
would only strengthen the republican posl-
lion. In his present spirit , ho said , the pres
ident will bo satisfied with nothing that docs
not put courage in his ndininisiration and Iho
protective tariff out of the minds of the pee
ple. The speaker believed that congress
would not gratify Iho president , and would
put the whole question over to next year , by
which time a republican administration
would bo In power , when the question could
bo equitably settled. Concluding Mr. Blalno
"The president's machine Is contrived to
run about seventy days , but It will surely
work without harm to the men In front of it ,
nnd may 1 add that It Is admirably arranged
to kick and kill the men behind It. "

ono of absolute free trade. "

ify the nomination of Grover Cleveland nnd
Allen G. Thurmun as president and vice pres
ident of the United Slules. ( A voice , "What's
the mntlor with the labor candiclalcsl" )
Grover Cleveland is the true labor candidalo
of to-day. I am a free trader , and the man
who is afraid to bo branded ns a free trader
