TUB WOOL 1ITTEKESTS.
It seems inevitable that wool it to on-
gngo as mtfbh of the attention ot the
ioxt congress as it did that of the last.
The special mooting ot the executive
committee of the national association of
wool manufacturers , hold at Boston this
Week , was expected to formulate Bomo
sort of proposition to bo presented to
congress na representing the demands
of the manufacturers , but it failed to
do so. About all that was developed -
volopod regarding the desires
of the manufacturers was ob-
Lalnod from interviews after the con
ference had completed its fruitless de
liberations. From thcso it is learned
that the manufacturers regard the
present time as n critical ono for their
business. They have not for oomo tlmo
boon enjoying a wholly satisfactory
measure of prosperity , and the outlook
Is not favorable. The president of the
national association is quoted as saying
that , while there is no wlshtonUncK the
wool-growers , something must bo done
for the m'anufncttirers. The growth of
the woolen industry hus not kept
pace with that of other industries , no-
cording to this authority , and the man
ufacturers hnvo not only had no induce
ment to expand , but have been obliged
to contract. This condition of things
has gone on until their business a Hairs
have become critical , and the two
courses suggested in orderio resuscitate
the business is cither to cheapen the
raw material or give greater protection
to the manufactured product. A change
which , it is the opinion of some ,
will give the manufacturers the
relief they seek , is to make
the duty on wool ad valorem instead of
specific. If this wore done the duty
would bo graduated to the rise and fall
of the foreign market , and it is con
tended that if this wore done the for
eign manufacturer would not enjoy the
advantage ho now docs over the Amer
ican manufacturer. A great many wool
manufacturers favor this proposition.
The wool growers have no doubt
ss to their nttitudo. So " far as
hoard from thuy are unanimous
in demanding not only that there
shall bo no reduction of the
duties on wool , but that there
shall bo a restoration of thy higher
duties of 1807 , us provided for in the
Bonalo tariff bill. The protest ot the
Ohio branch of the wool growers' asso
ciation against any und all propositions
looking to a reduction of the wool duties
is unequivocal , and there can bo no
doubt that this had a very important
influence in determining the action , or
more properly the inaction , of tlio Bos
ton conference of woolen manufactur
ers. There is to bo another conference
hold on the 2d of October , which
it is possible will give moro doll-
nito expression to the requirements and
wishes of tbo manufacturers , but from
the present aspect of the situation it
would seem that the wool growers are
likely to have their wishes regarded.
In that case the question before the
next congress in 'relation to the wool in
terests will bo thatof increasing the du-
tics on the products of wool. It is plain
that the manufacturorsiof woolen goods
can not continue to do business under
the present conditions. Fifty nota
ble failures have occurred in
this industry during the present
year , and it is not in a
very much better condition than the
iron industry of Now England , which is
almost unanimous in demanding a , re
vision of the tariff that will civo it free
raw materials. The promise is for a
very nctivo and interesting contest
over the question of wool duties
in the next congress , with a
strong probability that the weight of
public sentiment will bo against any in
crease of the duties on wool , and possi
bly in favor of reducing them.
FUTURE.
Mr. Dunnoll , the correspondent of the
Now York Times , who is supplying the
readers of that journal with , a great
deal of interesting information regard
ing the great went , predicts a great fu
ture for "Wyoming. Ho says that the
past of this territory , glorious as it
seems , will bo but a palo anl ; indistinct
promise of future greatness fifty years
honco. While its svbcortalnod rosouruas
nro such as to excite the admiration of
every ono who takes the trouble to ex
amine the reports about thorn , it does
not take long to discover that they
are hut imperfectly known. A few
coal mines have boon opened and are
paying richly. The rocks have boon
tapped hero and there , revealing iron ,
silver , and other oros. Oil indications
have boon habtily examined at differ
ent points , with results so gratifying
as to insure the belief that in the
Rocky mountains are to bo sunktho
walls that will exceed those of Pennsyl
vania as a source of the now world's
supply of petroleum. It is the guess of
the geologists that there nro thirty
thousand square miles of coal underly
ing Wyoming. Its sod deposits in
sight are estimated .at millions of
tons. Petroleum is escaping from ono
or two \volls aiul from named nnd name
less springs in live or six counties , all
still beyond the roach of the rail
roads.
There is an empire in this territory ,
says the Times correspondent , lying
half way between the Mississippi nnd
the Pacific coast , that is us spacious in
area as Now York , Ohio , Now Jersey
and Delaware combined. It is as broad
as all the Now England Htutos and In
diana together. It is larger in
urea by throe thousand squuro
miles than the great states of
Iowa and Ohio. It contains
nearly sixty-three million acres , a largo
part of which can bo made splendidly
productive by irrigation. Of its vast
resources "all await development , and
the greatest of them , coal , has been
scarcely touched.
A grout deal of capital will , bo re
quired to develop the resources of Wy
oming. A vast expenditure for irriga
tion will bo necessary to render her
now almost worthies ! ) lands productive.
But it is only beginning to bo known
what splendid opportunities this terri
tory offers , and when thatknowledgo be
comes moro widely disseminated there
will bo no lade of capital to bring her
various ro&ourc'us into service and to
provide the moans for her agricultural
prosperity. There can bp no doubt that
there is n pront future for Wyoming ,
and not only is it probable , that within
the next ton years the present territory
will have become ono of the populous
states of tlio west , bub will nlso bo ono
of the foremost in contributing to the
national wealth. It la the contempla
tion of all this , says the Times corre
spondent , the security for future great
ness thai it holds out , that inspires
Wyoming people with the desire to bo
accorded nil the advantages that can bo
derived from statehood , nnd the pre
sentation of such facts can hardly fail
to maico an impression upon congress
and the country favorably to thnt de
sire.
OF RAILWAY MEN.
The federation of the different labor
organizations on the Union Pacific sys
tem is the rosultof negotiations pending
for nearly a year. The movement be
gan bcforo the final collapse of the
Burlington strike , and was duo to the
failure of that struggln. If this union is
ratified at the coming convention of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers ,
it will result in ono of the moat power
ful labor organizations over formed in
this country , not excepting the Knights
of Labor.
The Burlington strike cost the or
ganizations participating a largo
sum of money , but was not with
out its benefits and lessons. It demon
strated that the onglnoors could not
carry on a strike for twenty-four hours
without the hearty co-operation of the
firemen. It bridged the chasm that for
merly existed between them and
brought them into close , harmonious
relations for mutual benefit. Realizing
the good to flow from the union of two
strong organizations , with interests in
common , the movement spread to all
societies of railroad employes , and now
the union comprises the brakemen ,
switchman , and Knights of Labor , and
will eventually take in the train dis
patchers.
The growth of this organization will
bo watched with great interest by all
friends of labor as well as railroad man
agers. Many difUcultics besot its nath ,
not the least of which are the jealousies
heretofore existing between them.
This will not seriously interfere with
the harmonious progress of the organ
ization in the west , but in the cast an
in ten so hatred exists between the
Knights of Labor and the engine men ,
which will require the earnest nnd
united action of conservative leaders to
successfully overcome.
The action of the engineers' conven
tion in Denver next month will deter
mine the lifo or death of the fedorn-
tion. If that body sustains the policy
of Chief Arthur to hold aloof from all
kindred organizations , the result is
likely to bo a split between the eastern
nnd western factions , which will seri
ously cripple tho.brothorhood. The re
tirement ( if Arthur is demanded by the
western men , and if they are successful
the success of the federation west of the
lanes is assured.
FOUEST FIRES.
The destructive forest fires raging in
sections of the northwestern states and
territories have caused incalculable
damage to the country. Thousands of
acres of timbojr land have boon swept
by the flames and millions of feet of
cut lumber and cordwood destroyed in
Montana , Idaho. Washington and Ore
gon. For the last two months the coun
try has boon enveloped in a pall of suf
focating smoke , and day almost turned
to night by clouds carried hundreds of
miles from the vicinity of the disaster.
The fires started early in July and
have raged with moro or less fury to
the present time. It is impossible to
compute the damage inflicted. The
loss of life , so far , is comparatively
small , but the loss of stock , homos , mills
and like property will roach into the
millions. In Montana alone two hun
dred thousand dollars worth of cordwood -
wood was destroyed on the mountain
sides.
The immediate cause of this disastrous
bosom of flame was the drought. The
unusual mildness of last winter through
out that section nnd the trifling'snow
full loft the mountains and valleys bare.
Spring rains iiid not materially relieve
the lack of moisture. Aii a result the
country became a ready prey to the
flumes in raid-summer.
The immense influx of settlers to
Washington territory is primarily re
sponsible for tlfo appalling destruction
wrought in that section. The unsettled
portion of the territory is heavily tim
bered. In their haste to ofToct a clear
ing , land hunters piled the undergrowth
around the trees nnd attempted to burn
thorn out. Their folly brought about
their own dostruction. The flames wore
carried beyond their control and
brought ruin to hundreds of homos.
The effect of the calamity will bo felt
for years. It is especially crushing to
thousands of newcomorn , whoso homos
and crops und stock fell a prey to the
devouring olemont. Coupled with the
partial destruction of StSattlo , Ellotis-
burg tvnd Spokane Falls , Washington
has passed through a terrible baptism
of flro on the threshold of statehood.

industry. Ho will visit six or eight of

study of the ontorprlso to gain a kno.wl-

would become a success. Tlio sugar
works at Fort Scott made throe
hundred thousand pounds at a
profit last year. Greater results
nro looked for the present season , many
improvements having been made in the
processes employed. No further proof

IK 18 16 the consumption ot American
cotton by Great Britain amounted to
ono million two hundred and thirty-
nine thousand bales , whllo the United
States used only throe hundred nnd
ninety thousand bales of the product.
In 1883 the English consumption had

forty-eight thousand seven hundred
nnd twonty-ono dollars. Every time a

Cleveland's with Harrison's methods of

the exact figures.
IT ArrEAns that Kansas City has a

the business of half a. dozen small
suburban towns is taken in so that the

Kansas City is very enterprising , but her

TUB death penalty was abolished in
Rhode Islund nearly forty years ago ,

No minor event of the year has

OTHER LANDS THAN OURS ,
The ROnornl election * in Franco tor mom-
bars 6t tbo now clmmbor of deputies will
take place to-morrow , nnd there Is universal
interest In the result , This will dotormlno
whether or not UoulntiRor 1 still nn import *
ant factor In French politics. The sonata
has convicted him ot treason , and also for
misappropriation , while minister ot war , ot
the secret service fund , In almost any other
country than Franco such grave ctiarctoa ,
sustained by so eminent nbody ns the highest
branch of the legislature , xvould destroy for
ever the political power of any man against
whom they were brought. Hut in that coun
try even the sonata does not enjoy the abso
lute confidence of the people , nnd its most
carefully considered nets may bo sot down
by partisans as partial , unjust nnd malicious
if directed ( iRntust a political Idol. The son *
ate having found Houlnngor guilty of trea
son nnd misappropriation of government
funds , it would naturally bo eupnosod that
ho would bo done for as a loailor
of n causa or party. But such has
not boon the case , These newspa
pers which supported him before the ver
dict was rendered have as loyally supported
him since , nnd his followers of Hollovlllo and
Monttnnrtro , two of the most papulous voting
ing districts of Paris , have boon rather moro
than less devoted to his political fortunes
slnco than before the vordtct of the sonata
was proclaimed ; they hnvo hold tnootlngs of
vast numerical proportions nnd made publto
demonstrations in his fuvor which clonrly
Indicate thnt their confidcnao In him has not
been nt nil shaken by the notion of the sen-
nto. The late elections In the several dis
tricts for counclllors-gonor.il went against
Uoulnnpor , but the Issue between the princi
ples of the government nnd these of lioutnn-
gor were not so sharply drawn In that contest -
test as they will bo In the approaching ono.
The councillors-general have nothing to do
with the revising of the constitution , with
abolishing tbo sonata nnd restricting or
maintaining the rights of the olorgy , nnd tlio
doputlos hnvo practically all to do with de
termining these things. The previous elec
tion cannot therefore bo accepted ns even a
satisfactory Indication of the results of the
coming ono , and whether Houlangor shall
appear re-established ns n political force or

lloth parties nssumo to bo confident of suc

The loyalty of Jonn Burns , the labor agita

and might onnblo thorn to win a seat. In the

runner of the pzar's visit to Potsdam it may
put nn end to the rather ungracious grumb
lings of some of the German newspapers
over what they have chosen to consider the
czar's tardy return of courtesy. It is true
that moro than a year has gone by since Emperor -
poror William's visit to Russia , nnd also that
it was his first journey after coming to the
til rune. But there must always bo sucn a
casting of pollco horoscopes and preliminary
tracking of nihilists before the czar can
tnovo out of his domains that a postponement
of intended trips can never bo safely Judged
from a political standpoint. On the other
hand , the inference from tbo unusual honors
accorded to the czarowitch that bo is moro
favorably inclined toward Germany than
his father seems hasty , and certainly is not
in accord with what lias boon understood
htthorto. What , the fervor nnd brilliancy of
his reception may fairly bo inferred to indi
cate is that the Gorman government wishes
to show to nil the world its desire for cordial
rotations with Russia , and there never has
boon any roil ground to doubt the sincerity
of that dcslro.

Samoa's three kings , relieved of foreign
Influence , nro conducting thamsulvcs in a
commcndably pacific nnd amiable fashion ,
such as could hardly bo expected from a trio
of rival candidates for the throne With a
courtesy that has a royal flavor , oven if it
comes from the south seas , Malioton , on
bolng brought back by the Germans from
his unjust banishment , insisted oit not imme
diately displacing Matuafa , urging ill health ,
nnd that Mataafa had really boon made the
depository of regal power by the patriot pop
ulation. Uut Mataafa was no Joss earnest to
have it understood that ho had boon tlio rop-
rosontntivo of Mullotoa till the latter should
roturn. Now it appears that Malioton was
at length , quietly restored to power , und that
thereupon these friends both withdraw to
Manono to await the action of our country on
the Berlin conference. Manono is a little
island of nbout three square miles nrua'in ,
closed within the sea roof of the largo island
of Upolu , on which Apia , ttio capital , Is situ
ated. They are accordingly Intently bout on
not coming into conflict with iCing T.una-
scso , who is presumably still at Apia , and is
certainly qnlot und tractable. With such
cooduct on the part of the throu icings , tho-
three treaty powers ought to find little

Prlnco Albert , of Monaco , if ho really
breaks up the palatial Casino nt Monte
Carlo , will oo entltloil to the credit of a rare
sacrifice of personal interest. For the Casino
ut Monte Carlo Is , In u very material sense ,
his principality. It is from the renting of
this that the rovunuo of Monaco has been derived -
rived for the last twenty years , und during
all that period the subjects of the prince
huvo boon exempted from taxation. To
abolish gambling in the Casino now means
to iniposo taxes again upon a people who
have learned to enjoy u government without
paying tor it , and it requires a bravo man to
tuko such a radical step as this iu the treat
ment of his subjects. It Is sincerely to be
hoped that Prlnco Albert possesses the
requisite moral courage to begin his rolgn
over his small Mediterranean territory by
putting into execution the scheino with
which the Berlin dispatch credits him.
Monte Carlo has boon a disgrace to the con
tinent of Europe slnoo 1853 , when the ( Jasluo
11 rut uroso on Its beautiful alopua. It has
been the scene of innumerable sulcitlns , tno
thuuter of blasted hope * , nnd tbo grave nf
lost honor. Its blighting influences have not
boon confined to Franco or Italy , the conti
nent , or l5aropo. They have stretched across
oceans and tulnod the prospaaU of families
nil orer the olvllliod world. And all this
oTll hat boon ntlowod to flourish simply that
n little family might bo allowed to reign in
Monaco without laying Its own subjects
under contribution.

Wo have distrusted Mr. Blalno for years ,
and have said many bitter things against
him in times gone by ; but it is difficult to
reconcile his recent , career with the theory
that ho was ever n rascal in the full sense
of the word , though ho no doubt made many
mistaken and did nome muan and possibly
some wrong things In the course ot his lifo.
When ho refused to become a presidential
candidate in 1888 , nf tor the nomination had
been virtually put nt his Disposal , ho touched
a moral height that no other man of our
time has reached ; and compared with Cleve
land , who lied , intrigued , nud stultified him
self to get a nomination , Blalno must bo
pronounced model of consistency , self-denial
and patriotism. It is Hyperion to a Satyr.

peculiar Interests are on the floors of con
gress. The growth ana development of

and it is not a question of whom we
