- * General Harrison's letter.
The letter of General Harrison , for-
nally nccoptlng the nomination of the
opubllcan party , followed hard upon
hat of the democratic candidate , as if
o glvo the people of the 001)11 ) try an op-
) ortunityto immediately compare the
wo documents. If this idea moved the
republican candidate tomako public hif
otter , which evidently was ready some
imo ago , within forty-eight hours aftoi
ho appearance of Mr. Cleveland's for-
mil accoplanco , It was aslirowd thought
vhloh General Harrison will not fall tc
jroflt by. No candid and fair-minded
nan who will compare- these loiters can
all to bo impressed In favor of that ol
ho republican candidate.
The distinctive merit of General liar-
Ison's letter in that it explains cloarlj
nnd suniciontly the position of its nil-
, her with respect to nil matters whlcli
mmodiately concern the interests and
volfaro of the American pooplo. It islet
lot conllnod to a single issue and made
to do service for ono question. Evor.i
) roblcm that engages llio attention o
, ho country in the present campaign ro
colvos attention , nnd not in a morel ;
lorfuilctory way , but with a can
and fullness that loaves no room for c
doubt or question respecting the attl
, udo of the republican candidate. Ho-
gardlng the loading issue of the cam
iiilgn , the tarilt question. General liar
risoa's letter is entirely reassuring tc
the advocates of n just and oquitabli
lollcy of tarill revision. Ho points ou
nest forcibly nnd convincingly that tin
contest of the two great p.irtios is no
between schedules , but between wldi
ipart principles. On the part of tin
lomoeraey the purpose and inovitabl
drift is toward free trade , while th
republicans insist upon presorviiij
the principle of ] ) rotoction. "Tlv
republican party holds , " says Genera
Harrison , "that n protective tariff is
constitutional , wholesome and nocos
sary. Wo do not offer a fixed schedule
but a principlo. Wo will revise tin
schedule and modify rates , but alway
with a provision as to the ottco t upoi
domestic production and the wages u
our working pooplo. " No ono who ha :
believed the republican candi
date to bo In favor of maintaining the
war tariff can fail to bo convinced o
his vnistako after reading th
letter of acceptance , nnd thos <
who have gratuitously charge
that General Harrison was oppose
to it revision of the tariff will bo compelled
polled to acknowledge that they luivi
done him an injustice. If ho shall b
elected to the presidency ho can lx
safely depended on to recommend ti
congress such changes and reduction
of the tarill as will give the peopl
needed relief without imperiling an ;
established industry or enterprise
This is the plain promise and assur
ancc of the letter , and the character o
General Harrison warrants confidonc
that the promise will bo kept.
With regard to the importa
tion of foreign laborers an
the immigration of Chinese
General Harrison's plain and unmi !
takably honest language is all that an
fair-minded American citizen coul
ask. Ho does not believe that wo shoul
exclude the worthy people of otho
lands who seek homos in this country
but that wo should rigidly enforce th
laws for keeping out all the objection
nblo classes , as paupers , criminals , an
these aliens who cannot assitnilato will
us. His position regarding Chinese in
migration is so clearly stated that none
ono will hereafter venture to quostio
it. General Harrison recognize
the objections to this immigratio
as conclusive , and assures the counli
that if elected ho would faithfully 01
force the laws relating to this subjoci

least intelligent reader to undorstan
the views and position of the author. 1
is a concise , straightforward nnd man
festly sincere letter that General Harr
6on has addressed to his party and I
the country , and wo believe it will ha\
the effect of greatly strengthening tli
republican cause.
The Sioux
The opinion is that in duo time tl
bill providing for the opening of tl
Sioux reservation will receive tl
requisite number of signatures , no
withstanding the hostility to the mea
uro thus far manifested. It is foun
that there is much loss opposition i
the lower agencies than at Standin
Hock , and It is loss unreasoning. As
mutter of fact a great deal of the oppi
sition shown is not serious. To a coi
sidprablo extent it is simply in coi
formlty with the Indian habit of fanl
finding and obstruction , which has i
motive in a desire to bo bought. The It
dlau nature is not so different from tin
of the white man that it will not tali
advantage of an unusual opportunit ;
such as the Sioux believe is prosontc
to thorn in the pending negotiations.
Still there has boon and isyot a mea
uro of genuine opposition , and sou
tlmo and a good deal of further ofToi
will bo required to overcome it. Tli
squaw men , whoso interest it , is tlinttl :
Indians should remain as they are , hav
boon hard at work , and they have hoc
actively seconded by certain solf-sull
clout philanthropists , who , it is just
said , have been the curse i
the Indians for more than
generation. This combination , ' a
cording to trustworthy reports , In
been most aggressively busy in polsoi
ing the minda of the Indians again
the proposed arrangement , and wil
what degree of success the situation
this time amply attests. But there ai
indications that these marplots nro no
losing ground , and once the Indiai
begin to manifest distrust of them :
considerable numbers it will not bo di
Hcult to bring over the whole bed ,
The statement is that the moro intoll
gent Indians are doing their best ft
the treaty , and it is believed to bo
practical certainty that when thotrlb , <
have discussed It to thulr an
isfaction , and this they hai
an unquestionable right to do , ni :
when they find they have received n
the concessions they can hope for , the
will sign the treaty almost unanimous !
The pity is that the falsa friends of the
iidiuna , whoso motives tire wholly self-
sh , should have so great an inlluuuco
\\lth them.

Mr. George William Curtis Is consist-
out in condemning tlio action of the
lomocrutlo stnto committees of Ohio ,
tlassaohusollH , and other states in sond-
ng out circulars to federal officeholders
calling for assessments , but what fusti-
Ication can ho offer for supporting an
idmlnislratlon that allows this to bo
done ?
It Is true thcso circulars do not do-
naud contriouUons. They ars slmplj
suggestive. But who doe1 } not under'
Bland thut they are practically as coercive
is if tholr language was mandatory'
They bear upon tholr faces the argumeni
, lmt , being stipendiaries of the
administration , thoao who get them arc
expected to support the administration
Inancially as well as otherwise. If the
administration is sincere In Us civil ser
vice reform professions Us manifest
duty is to publicly and distinctly dis
countenance this method of blooding
Llio federal officeholders for campaign
Out the administration will do noth
ing of tlio kind. The sentiment that
controls It was fully expressed In Dai
Lament's explanation of Cleveland' )
contribution , and the oxnmplo thus
sot by the president hlmsoll
every stipendiary of the ad
ministration is expected to emu
lato. The average pollticiai
will porhnp * find no fault with tills , but
it is not easy to see how the virtuous
mugwump reformer can conscientiou.-tlj
vote for a man and a party that thu
violates a cardinal principle of elvi
service reform.
Tim recent inquiry made by congress
with respect to the amount of money be
longing to the government in the hand :
of the banks brought out some valuable
facts. Two hundred and nlnoty-foui
national banks during the year 183' '
wore made depositories for govornmon
funds , the amount of which , as roportoi
to congress , exceeded sixty millions , i ;
lieu for which the United Slates troaa
uror hold as security fifty-six millions o
government bonds. Formerly no banl
was permitted to hold at ono time mor
than 3500,000 of those deposits but under
dor the now rules of October , 1887" , tin
limit was extended. The cause of thi
leniency regarding deposits was duo t
the money strlngonesy in the market las
autumn. To relieve this pressure Secretary
rotary Fairchilel was led to put thcs
sixty millions into circulation throng !
the banks , taking their govornmon
bonds as security. Tlio holding of treas
ury deposits by national banks is by n
means a now feature in our govern
mont's financial dealings. Since 183
national banks have had in their lcooi )
ing at ono time or other govornmen
deposits varying from six to sixty mil
lions. During the refunding operation
of 1878-9 under Secretary Sherman
however , tlio banks hold funds belong
ing to the government to an amount ay
grcgating throe hundred anel thirl
millions. How far the govornmen
shall go in making national banks it
depository is a elobatablo question an
ono upon which congress will bo calle
sooner or later to pass careful
COUNT MITKIKWIC/ , who is thoi
oughly informed as to China , is reporto
to scout the idea that China has re
jootod the now treaty with Americf
In his opinion China favors the treat
restricting the emigration of Chinos
to the United States because China doe
not favor emigration. For that reaso
China would accept the treaty , sine
it would affect English interests i
Hong Kong aiid Canton ami not its owi
The attitude of confrroB'iOn the Chines
question has boon taken advantage (
by the English to further their ow
ends. It is evidently an English trie
to spread abroad the rumor that Chin
rejected the treaty with the view thn
hostile legislation would shako tli
friendly relations holwcon China an
the Unitdd States. This would allo
the British to take away the Chines
trade from this country , and to kill th
project of buileiing American railroad
in that empire. Should it turn out 1
bo true that China has not rejected th
treaty , the suspicions of British intoi
foronco in our relations with Chin
would bo strongly confirmed.
Ai/ntouou there is diHappnlntmor
over the wheat crop on which grot
hopes wore built earlier in the season
there need bo no such apprehension re
garding the yield of corn. During th
past two weeks the corn crop of th
country has passed out of the danger e
being nipped by frost. It may bo safol
assorted that fully two thirds of th
yield is now out of peril. The rest e
the crop is rapidly passing into thi
stage where frost or insects ca
affect but little the drying husks
The returns from Nebraska , Kansas
Iowa nnd Illinois are highly oncourag
ing. The average condition of corn , a
reported by the national department e
agriculture , for September 1 , througl
out the country , is 01.2 , and in seven c
the great corn producing states th
average condition is 95 as compared wit
04 at the corresponding time last yoai
Such another autumn as the prcson
season has not boon experienced fo
years. It can bo aptly described n
"corn-woathor , " being cool , wit
bright , warm days. And the farmer
may well rojolco at the plontoon
bounty which ho is promised.

The death of Charles Crocker of tin

an incident thathappenoil when Chniie
1. Lammon was United States mar-jha
for Nevada , about the year 187-1 , say :
the Virginia Enterprise. Lammon , it
his oillcial capacity , had served four 01
five subpcurfas on as many persons In i
suit of tlio Central Pacific versus Mars

of water rights. The persons horvee

and a car was furnished the aforesaid
marshal while making the services
talcing but portion of t\vo ; days te

after quite a wrangle was paid. The
joke of this article came in when Lam
mon soon after presented himself In the
private ottlco of Mr. Crocker , asking
that his wlfo bo added to his
yearly pass , in compensation of his
faithful services to llio company and hi :
endeavors In its behalf. After ho had
taken his scat and stated his case , Mr ,
Crocker looked him square In the face
and said : "Lammon. are you the mar
shal who has just boon paid $ S15 for t\yi
days' work quadruple the amount you
had a right to charge undo ? the law-

between Mexico aud the country nortli

Paso del Norte. On our trip througl :
Now Mexico wo have made the acquain
tance of the primitive adobe houses and
their swarthy occupants ; yet , after we
have missed the Ulo Grande , wo too
that wo are in alien country ; alien , mil
only because wo have loft the stars nnd
stripes behind us and hoe the Moxicai :
tricolor waving over public buildings
but bee'iuise the language , manners
customs , all nro distinctly foreign. The
depot of the Moxie-an Central railroad ,
though built of adobe , and the cars are
the only objects reminding us that we
are still in the nineteenth century bul
take a look around at obioe-tsanimate 01
inanimate , mm they will remind you ol
bygone centuries. Look at that primi
tive oxcart ; its rude two wheels would
seem to fall apart at the llrt motion :
the yoke , too , is such as wo have road ol
in the middle ages. The driver standing
lintlcBHly by his sleepy teams , geeini
satisfied to wait for work , oven thougl
it should never como. Tlio emblem o
stupidity , which should bo rather the
omulein of patience and frugality , the
donkey , is well represented , lloro car
rying a load of wood , tlioro some bun
dies of charcoal and occasionally munch

Not much Is needed , It seems , to make
a living. There is a stalwart fellow , in
the prime of life , squatting down be
hind a diminutive table on which is hi :
stock in trade , live buns , representing t
value of perhaps ton con Us. Instead ol
employing his time ho is satisfied if he
can make his daily tortillas , without OX'
exerting himself. The hood of the
women , the wrapper with which tl
hide their features , it is all foreign , all
alien to us.
It cannot bo the airfor that is bracing
enough , it must bo something in the

It cannot bo called laxinoss for that ii
moro an acquired habit ; it seems almosl
as if the whole Mexican race had boot
fed on the lotus plant. Order home

Mamma { from mah-nyah-nah ) to-mor
row. The old saying seems to road in
Mexican , never do to-day what you can
dei to-morrow. Throughout Mexico wei
will ilnd ample evidence that our south
ern neighbors fully believe that.
Wo are the same that our fathers
have boon. Mexico is a rich country
Its natural resources , agricultural ai
well as mineral , cannot bo surpassoel ,
Notwithstanding the immense amount
of precious metals taken from its miiiet
for hundreds of years , the states o
Sinnlon , Chihuahua nnd Durango yield
still vast quantities. With all this the
people are poor , or what wo would con
sider wretchedly poor. Their houses
of the simplest material , are almost entirely
tiroly without furniture ; their food is
of the simplest , beans or the flour ol
beans forming the staple : but in the
simplicity of their wants they know nc
bettor and ask no moro.
There is a great influx of American !
into Mexico , and the government ol
President Diaz seems to encourage
American enterprise. But now , the
question arlhos , if the extreme liberal
ity with which our capitalists arc
treated will not give rise to political
complications of which it is dilllcult to
forohoo the end. Wo refer especially le
theSmmonsooonccBsionsof land granted
to Americans. Take , for instance , the
International company , of Hartford
Conn. This corporation obtained r
grant , of 18,000,000 acres in Lower Cali
fornia and another largo grant in Las
Palomns , in the northern part of MexIco -
Ice , boutli of Doming. Aa thcso im
mense territories nro obtained without
any or nt the merest nominal considura
tion , the now owners offer great induce
ments to settlers , but this immigration
upon which the native looks now witli
apathy , is likely to drive him to the
wall and produce feelings of aversion ,
which may lind their expression in
deeds rasher than words.
