LONDON. Sept. 10. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to TUB Hne.1 All the mornIng -
Ing papers yield great space to the presi
dent's letter. Two , especially , comment ,
The Dally News observes : "The letter of
President Cleveland which wo publish to-day
Is primarily a defense of the democratic
party against the imputation of f reo trade.
The most , damaging thing to bo said against
the party is that It favors throwing open
the national posts to foreigners , and thus
reducing the rewards of American labor
rnd the condition of the American laborer to
what is currently believed to bo below ths
level of laborers In Europe. It Is needless to
say that the democratic party Is open to no
such reproach or rather deserves no such
complaint , if wo are to Judge the American
contest from an American point of view.
The democrats have undoubtedly urged a re
vision of the tariff but they have taken care
to urge not only the Interest of Americans at
largo but that of tlio great American indus
tries which at present look to protection
as their only hope. In n certain sense
democrats claim to bo the only true pro
tectionists. While they rejoice In true do
mestic prosperity which Is n direct result of
unrestricted free trade between state and
state within the borders of the union , they
deplore the difficulties that beset the Ameri
can manufacturer in his struggle with the
foreigner. They believe that nothing but a
judicious reduction of the duties on raw ma
terials is wanting to enable the American
workmen and his employer to command the
markets of the world. "
The Morning Post devotes the most atten
tion to the debate on the retaliation bill and
says : "It is not without pained surprise
that Englishmen will notice the treatment
dealt out to this country in the ncbato
in the house of representatives on
the retaliation bill. Even the description
of the head of the state as an ass
and a shivering coward , which expressed
the convictions of the republican minority ,
seems to have been inspired more by n sense
of being out-maneuvered than by any consid
eration in the case ns It may affect others.
After this , wo cannot , perhaps , make any
very strong complaint. In an assembly
where language which will strike most people
ple ns u gross outrage on public decency Is
directed against the president himself , it
is scarcely likely that Britishers would
meet with more conciliatory treatment.
So far thuro has been no public intimation ol
the course which tlio British cabinet have
decided on , a fact which should have servet
to make the premature nature of these at
tacks on England more apparent than it has
done. To speak of this country as a cold
clammy devilllsh is totally inconsistcn
with the common civility due between state ;
living at pcaco with each other. II
would bo idle to disguise from our
selves that there Is nothing tc
expect in the -vay of friendly ncgotiatior
until the doti'cstlc matter has been settled
Meanwhile we tire not without hopes thai
the legitimate feelings of American commerce
merco will have made themselves heard
above tills unseemly hubbub before it is ab
solutely necessary to make fresh attempts u
a solution of the fisheries question. "

to many million marks. Saturday's closini

for the dilemma in which the bears wor

of ability to deliver. This gambling lu coffe

WASIIISOTON , D. C. , Sopt. 10. ;
Congressman McSliano expects to leave
on Tuesday or Wednesday for Omaha and to
reach there by the end of the week. Mean
time ho Is in Now York where ho is said to
bo in close consultation witli the national
democratic committee. It is generally be
lieved that while Mr. McSliano will not ex
pend as largely from his own funds as ho is
said to have done In previous campaigns ,
that ho will give to others who will provide
the ways and means the benefit of Ills per
sonal experience and lend them the advan
tage of his name. It it quietly understood
that while the democratic national commit
tee have few hopes of carrying the. state in
view of its largo republican majority that
there are hopes expressed that the effect
upon the legislature of a lively democratic
canvass may bo such as to warrant either a
democratic candidate or ono who
would nlllliate with the democracy. At
least this is the view taken by n prominent
democratic politician in the city who said to
me to-day ttiat next to the presidency an
upper house in accord with the lower house
of congress was most desired. Should
Cleveland and Tnunnan bo elected the sen
ate will bo n tie , unless Now Jersey tills
McPherson's seat with a democrat or West
Virginia selects a republican. An additional
United States senator , or ono who will go
with the democracy upon questions like tar
iff reduction , is therefore greatly to be de
sired , and the democrats are making their
combinations in several states with that end
in view.
IS TIlfllMAN WEARING OUT.
William C. MacBrido , the well known cor
respondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer , ar
rived hero to-day from New York. Ho has
'or some time been in close contact with
ludgc Thurman , and says ho does not believe
Thurman will live till the Novombjr elec-
ion , that if ho docs live that long ho cannot
, n all probability last till inauguration day ,
Mr. MacBrido adds that Thurman is crowing
very feeble and that the way ho is hauled
out for exhibition by the democratic mali
ngers is shameful.
TIIC 1'itr.sinnNT A POLITICIAN.
President Cleveland , it is learned , held
back his letter of acceptance for two month ?
and moro nnd issued it to-tiny to inlluencc
the election in Maine. It is learned furthoi
tliat the president ordered tlio democrats in
the house and senate to discuss tlio retalia
tory and Chinese bills during tlio past wceli
to the exclusion of appropriation bills anO
other important legislation to influence the
election to-day. How well ho succeeded tlie

TUT. SITI'ATION- PENNSYLVANIA.
"The enormous majority which the repub
llcan ticket always secure ? in the state ol
Pennsylvania , " said a gentleman from Me
Kean county , in that state , to-day , "makes i' '
seem ridiculous to talk of political change.1
in the state ; but there is ono section it
which the flopping is as remarkable ns it i ;
nny where In the country. I refer to the lum
ber regions in tlio counties of McKean , Pot
ter and Cameron. In those three counties
there are employed several thousand met
cutting and peeling hemlock , and in sawiiu
the logs into lumber. The township in whlcl
I live is known as Portage Creek. Thh
township has usually given n democratic ma
Jority of about ono hundred and fifty , nnt
last week there wore registered sixty-foul
new voters by the commissioners , and evorj
ono of tlio sixty-four expressed his deter
initiation to vote the republican ticket. The
day before yesterday sixteen moro wore
added.
" 1 took some pains to nsecrtain the feeltnf
nmong thn men in the lumber regions n dni
or too ngo nnd I found that out of the lit-
who voted for Mr. Cleveland in 18SI , 123 nn
in favor of tlio republican ticket and the re
publican platform. This remarkable chansi
is owing to the fact that the president's mea
'
sago na'lntcrprcted by the Mills bill place
lumber on the free list. Lumber at presen
pays S3 per 1,000 feet imnort duty whei
brought from Canada , nnd as our lumber i
almost nil sold nlong the northern frontier
principally in Buffalo and Rochester , the re
movnl of the duty of $3 on each 1,000 fee
would bo a serious blow to tlio industry , es
pccially when it is considered that hemlocl
lumber sells at from -JO to § 10 per 1,000 feet.
"Among the men most Interested in th
lumber interest are Moses , Charles tun
Frank Goodyear , The former has recentl ;
gone into partnership with his brother. *
few years ago ho was a member of the lawye
firm In which Grovcr Cleveland was
partner. Mr. Charles Goodyear vote
in Buffalo and . has always been
democrat. Ho has also been n member o
the democratic clubs , and no longer ttia :
four years ago an earnest supporter of Ore
vor Cleveland. While the Messrs. Gooi
year have not told mo distinctly that the
will vote for the republican ticket this fal
they have said very plainly that they eoul
not consistently support any man who ndv (
cates the theories in regaid to the taril
enunciated by Grovcr Cleveland , and I knoi
that their employes nro ulmost all Harriso
men to a num. The Pennsylvania lumbu
regions lop over into New York state , an
there are hundreds of men residing in f"
tar.iugus county who tire directly IntercX w
in the lumber tnrilV , because of their en
ployment in these lumber woods. Whil
many of these men have been democrat
they sco that tlio difference between tlio tu
parties to-day lies primarily in the positio
assumed by each on the tariff question , an
ns n consequence , seeing that their own ti
terests lie with the republicans , they will ui
doubtedly vote for Harrison and Morton an
the platform upon which they stand , ratlu
than for Cleveland nnd Thurmnn nnd frc
Canadian lumber. "
A IIISOIII.IOINO ADMINISTIUTION.
Bv degrees the avenues of public inform !
ion in the depaitment have been closing du
lug the past two years , until at present it
almost Impossible for an outsider , an ord
nary patriotic citizen , to procure any inforn
atiou whatever relating to public business.
Under previous administrations there lit
been no difliculty whatever for anybody I
procure nny character of information , excel
that procured by detectives nnd held iuvi <
lute on account of its very secret nature , nn
the books und the archives have been open \
every ono. There were no discrimination !
n democrat , a negro , a Jew , or nn Irlshimi
could procure information as correctly and t
quickly as u republican politician , Tlio so
vices of all clerics were nt tlio disposal t
American citizens , and everybody was trea
ed with uniform courtesy , without questio
Shortly after the present admluistrutic
caino into power an order was Issued nt tl
postonlco iicpartmcnt to permit no one <
have this information or that Infonmuio
and gradually the avenues which had bee
for so many years open to the miblic relutii
to the appointments of postmasters , the bom
of postmasters , changes In locations of pos
ofllces , removals , appointments , and so fort
were closed and were Hermetically scale
Then there was an order probably verbal
issued at tlio treasury department , which w ;
of a Ulmlivil character. It was only ttieotlu
day that your correspondent went to the o
ilco of the assistant treasurer of the Unite
States and asked for one of the last mouth
statements Issued under the Arthur udmlni
tratian. The assistant treasurer is n vei
courteous gentleman , but ho was perfon
compelled to decline the request , saying th
no one was permitted-to give outside inform
tier except the secretary of the treasury. < T1
assistant ireasurer.was thcarcmindcd that tl
information- requested 'Was simplyin tl
form .of public statements which are given '
thn press nnd to the 'icoplo wltlmnj , nnv he
tntion whatever , as they were required by
law and the oldest rules of the departments ;
and yet the assistant treasurer repeated that
ho was sorry to bo disobliging , but ho did not
feel at liberty under thc-rules of the depart
inent , at present , to grant the request. Tlio
same Is true In ttio office of the supervising
architect. That officer will not oven say
that n contract has been lut or that n special
agent has been sent on a public mission with
out a special direction from the secretary of
the treasury. In the office of the commis
sioner of customs the name condition of
atlairs exist. In the Interior and other de
partments ono encounters a similar condition
of affairs.
A. new order has been issued by Assistant
Postmaster General Knott. who has been
uniformly obsequious to his superiors and
disobliging to his inferiors and the public ,
whereby clerks in the dcpartmegt are not
permitted to give out any Information re
garding contracts , or movements of agents ,
or any information , in fact , which has here
tofore been public property.
It has come to pass that it is quite ns diff
icult for any one in Washington who is not
in official authority to procure information of
tlio most ordinary character as it is to secure
official favor. It is even n difficult thing for
a member of congress to procure information
which only four or llvo years ago a coal
heaver or hod carrier could get by simply
asking. There are two reasons for this
strange condition of business. In the first
place , the administration is determined that
nobody shall procure any infornntion which
can bo turned to the political advantage of
thi5 opposite party. In the second place , tlio
employes , whether they bo democrats or re
publicans , are suspected of being dishonest.
The superior officers are afraid to trust their
assistants.
Till : IMMHIIIATION QUESTION.
It is generally conceded by the leading
thinkers on both sides of congress that ono of
the most important pieces of legislation for
next winter will bo that of restricting immi
gration of all classes into the United States.
The recent investigation by the special com
mittee of the house hela at New York and
Boston has created u profound impression
upon the minds of men in congress , and of
the people throughout the country. Hun-
dreas of letters nro being received hero every
day , calling attention to the necessity of
decided legislation to prohibit tlio immigra
tion of undesirable foreigners. There is no
danger that the American idea will prevail ,
except in a limited degree , for the present at
least. But there seems to bo unanimity
among at least the native-born citizens upon
the conclusion that every character of for
eigners not specially desired as n part of the
American republic should bo excluded
from our shores. There is to bo no
specillc discrimination for or against any
nationality. Tills legislation is to apply to all
counties alike , and there are to bo
requirements imposed through the consular
and diplomatic and other agents of the gov
ernment abroad , which will require good
character and patriotic intentions upon the
part of all foreigners who embark to tills
country with u view to becoming citizens.
Undoubtedly this question will bring about
n great deal of discussion when congress re
convenes in December. The subject is a very
important ono and is n very delicate one.
Tlio politics in moro than one-half of the
congressional districts are controlled by for
eign-born citizens , and it will bo the aim of
every man in speaking and voting upon this
subject to avoid insulting those who may
have kin or friends in their mother country.
It Is not Intended that there shall be any re
striction placed upon these of good character
and good Intentions who dcsiro to come to
tlio United States and make this their
homo. The solo object Is to keep out pau
pers , criminals and the classes who will not
assimilate with native Americans , or if they
do assimilate will injure society or tlio gen
eral good of the country. It will require fur
ther investigation by this special committee
of the house and cxtrciro.caro to draft a bill
which will meet with finaiupprov.il ; but that
such a measure will finally bo adopted there
is no reasonable question.
The department ot state Is collecting In
formation on the subject of immigration from
the various countries bf the world , and
enougli has been ascertained already to show
that tlio United States is almost the only
country , if not indeed the only country , In
the world which places little or no restric
tion upon Immigration. Even China , Japan ,
Italy and the countries which have attracted
the attention of the United States on nc-
count of the largo percentage of people whom
it is intended shall DO excluded from citizen
ship in the United States , have laws restrict
ing the immigration of undesirable pcrsdus ,
One of the first reports received at the de
partment of state on this subject relates tc
Switzerland. The federal council of Switzer
land requires all persons who wisli to engage
in professional transportation of emigrants
or sale of passage tickets , to.procuro a H
cense for that purix > so issued by tlio fedora'
council , and the latter make regular reports
to the canton , winch makes tlio laws of the
republic. Agents are required to "prove r
good reputation und their civil and political
rights ; that they are acquainted with the

CHAIRMAN' DCIiMONT.
While Chairman Boiiuont , of the forclgi
affairs committee , has made a speech on tin
retaliation bill , the part which" ho tooic ii
tlio measure was so insignificant as to hnvi
excited some comment. Mr. Bclmoiit has bcei
absent from Washington during nearly tin
entire summer. Ho lias had very little to di
with legislation for two years , and as ho Inn
announced his intention to retire from eon
gross at tlio close of his present term , hi
will probably bo heard from very infro
qucntly during the remainder of his cou
gressional llfo.
Mr. Belmont gained some notoriot ;
through his attack on Mr. Blame some year
ago and for a while it was predicted that in
would prove to bo ono of the rising youni
statesmen. But In the Forty-ninth emigres
ho had charge of a bill for the reorganlzatioi
of the consular service upon a busines :
basis which was universally endorse !
by the administration and by members of th
house and sonata who had any know
ledge on the subject. Mr. Belmont's man
ngemcnt of the debate on the floor , howovci
was so far from being successful that ho an
tagonlzcd moro than half the house , and los
the bill through bad generalship. Slue
that time the "young statesman from B ib.v
Ion" has kept himself In the baekground.ani
to-day ho is seldom heard or seen on th
floor. Tills accounts for the minor part h
has played in the farce that has been cr
acted in the house during the past wccli
Kvon if Mr. Belmont should bo returned t
the Fifty-ilrst congress ami there should b

PAHIH , Sept. 10. [ New York Herald
Cable Snccial to Tin : Bii.1 : : Edwards
Picrrcpont , formerly In the cabinet of Pres
ident Grant , and Inter American minister to ji
England , Is spending a few weeks in Paris. ; |
Speaking yesterday to a Herald correspond
ent on the president's message to congress ,
he said :
"I think It n masterly stroke of policy in
the president to send his retaliation message
to congress after the rejection of tlio fishery
treaty , and it will redound to his credit with
the American people far moro than the
unanimous confirmation of the treaty would
have done. Positive views upon publlu af
fairs , expressed with honest courage , have
always captivated Americans. In the fore
cast of the few American statesmen worthy
of the name Canada lias appeared as a future
danger to the peace of the United StateswhIlo
politicians have scoffed thu Idea that the
population In the Icebound region could over
disturb the quiet of the grcnt republic. So
long ngo ns when Webster was secretary of il
state , considerable bluster was made about J\ \
the fishery business , nud in 1840 , while Polk
was president and Buchanan secretary ot
btnto , these who wore then bid enough to
read will remember that we insisted that our
northern boundary on the Pacific coast ex
tended to the Russian possessions in north
latitude , 54 degrees , 40 minutes. During the
public discussion about tins boundary the
ilcbatcs in congress nnd the columns of the
eaaing journals dcliantly proclaimed nnd
ileclnrcd that wo would go to war if that
, ) oundnry was not conceded. 'Fifty-four
Forty or fight' rang throughout the country.
Tills cry came from out of the hearts of the
icople , who had been instructed by the most
ntelllgcnt statesmen of the north that
: ho claims were well founded. But
[ ho south was In the ascendant. The
slavery question was already ngitntcd , nnd , - , .
the dominant .south did not wisli to extend > ? |
our free territory. The president was a
slave-holder , und the secretary of state n
northern man with southern principles , so
the popular cry was hushed. The secretary
of state nnd the British minister concluded n
treaty nt Washington on Juno 15 , 18-10 , by
which we surrendered to Great Britain every
ortion of the Pacific ocean between latitude
41 ! degrees north and the Russian possessions ,
and to make our humiliation moro abject , wo
bent our northern line of111 degrees down
through the channel and out through
the Straits of Fuca in order to
give England the whole of Van-
couvers island , which nlono hns an area
larger than the combined states of Massa
chusetts , Rhode Island , Connecticut nnd Del- M
nwnro. The summer climate is charmlngnnd .9
winter is not cold , 84 ° Fahrenheit being the f ' _ * |
maximum and 22 ° Fahrenheit the minimum -
for the year. By this treaty wo throw away
nn empire nnd imperilled the trade of the
Orient , nnd much of our own transconti
nental trade nlso , ns wo are now beginning
to find out. The time required for ships to
sail from China and Japan to Victoria is sev
eral days less than is required to sail from
these countries to San Francisco. The peace
of America will bo yearly endangered until
Canada is divided into states and made a
part of the great union. Tlio Canadian and
American statesmen who shall combine nnd
accomplish such n result will nchiovo Imper
ishable renown. The absorption of Canada
by the great republic is manifest destiny ,
and tlio history of nil vast empires teaches
that Inevitable result. "
THIS SUNDAY SALOON QUESTION.
Conclusions Arrived at I5y the Motlio-
dtst Clergymen of Chicago.
CHICAGO , Sept. 10. [ Special Telegram to
Tnr. Bii.l : The Methodist Episcopal min
isters of this city , at their regular weekly
meeting to-day , had the Sunday saloon clos
ing question up again and had n very heated
session. At first it was charged that the
foreigners were responsible for the day of
rest being turned into ono of debauchery and
pleasure. Finally they very generously con
cluded that tlio real cause was within the
folds of the church itself. When the meet
ing was called to order the committee on
municipal legislation on the saloon question
submitted a report in which it was stated
that Chicago was practically a foreign city
that not over one-fifth of the population
were Americans ; thai the municipal olllcors
were mostly foreigners nnd the city council
had n majority of foreigners as members.
Consequently the Americans were unnblo to
enforce American laws and felt some modesty -
esty about asking the foreigners to enforce
thorn. Tim report held nut that in conso-
qucnco of this state of things nnd in the in
fluence of foreign politicians , the mayor was
terrorized and could not enforce the lawi ,
The committee recommended that mass
meetings be held in Central Musio hall for
tlio purpose of arousing the people to a
realization of tlio fact that the laws were
continually being broken ; that if ihu mayor
did not do something ho bo impeached for
nun-performaneo of duty ; that If the mayor
was unable to enforce the laws ho could call
on the city council for aid. This caused
quite a sensation , but after n vigorous dis
cussion the report was rejected nnd the mat-
t'jr went over once moro.
