A cable dispatch of n few days ngo
stated that the fooling IB growing In
Wales that the tin pinto traJo with
America is doomed to virtual extinc
tion. Tin plate works In Wales are
closing every week , said this report , and
the best men that have boon employed
in thom nro going to the United States.
Those who hnvo taken an optimistic
view of the situation predict that the
trade will bo saved from destruction by
the capture of now markets to take the
place of the American. On the other
hand , those who take a pessimistic view
of the situation and prospects , and these
nppoar to bo the more numerous , point
to the fact that sixty factories in Eng
land nnd Wales , formerly engaged In
the manufacture of tin pinto , have
stopped , and that n dozen mnro nro preparing -
paring to cToso. This situation neces
sarily menaces the iron industry of
Wales , which Is loss active than for
merly. Corroborative evidence of the
depressed condition of the Welsh tin
plate Industry is supplied by the Man
chester Gitimlian , which stated in Us
issue of August 29 that oil the preceding
Saturday llftoon additional Welsh tin
plate works wore closed "In consequence
of the operations of the McKinley tariff
act. mid it is now estimated that about
10,000 Welsh operatives are thrown out
of employment"largo numbers of whom
wore preparing to emigrate to this
In the meantime the tin plalo indus
try in the United States is making
steady progress. On last Tuesday there
was dedicated at Klwood , Ind. , a now
tin pinto factory , one of the largest , nnd
mo.U complete plant's in the country of
the kind , which Is giving employment
to several hundred men. Reference bus
heretofore been made to the last report
of the special ngont of the Treasury de
partment on statistics relating to the
manulacturo of tin pinto in the United
States , f i om which it appears that this
industry has grown from nothing less
than Uvo years ago to a production nt
tlio rate of 20,000,000 pounds u year , and
the next report , to Uo expected shortly ,
will undoubtedly increase this amount.
Thus while the works in Wains are
shutting down now ones nro springing
into existence in this country , and ex
port workmen nro coming here to enable
us to make tin plate that will success
fully compete in the markets of the
world , whenever wo shall produce moro
than the homo demand , with the tinplate
plato of Wales. It is quite enough for
the present , however , to consider this
industry in connection with the homo
market , for when wo nro able to produce
sulllt'iont to supply that wo shall have
attained one of the greatest industrial
achievements in our history. Kvory
now development goes to show that this
It hns boon said of the democratic
party that it is the party ot prediction ,
and if results didn't ovnrtako the prediction -
diction it would bo the greatest party In
the world. The democratic party pro-
dieted that tin plate could not bo made
in the United States , and that any effort
to establish the industry hero must in
evitably prove n failure. Tlio result has
demonstrated the worthloisness of that
prediction , us has been the case with
many others made from time to time by
the same political party for the purpose
of discouraging tlio industrial develop
ment of tlio United States , keeping
down the wages of labor , mid rendering
the Amarican people dependent upon
the manufacturers of Great Britain.
Kvofy great industry that has grown up
in this country under the fostering c.iro
of protection has at the outset met with
the same objection und opposition from
tlio democratic party which that party
1ms made to the promotion hero of the
tin plate industry.

Chairman Htyrity of the democratic
national committee und the irrepressi
ble Don M. Dickinson , chairman of the
campaign committee , who by reason of
his rainbow-chasing tendencies is said
to bo n source of constant anxiety to
Mr. William C. Whitney , the chief
manager of the Cleveland campaign ,
hivvo issued nn address congratulating
the country on the resul ! of the recent
state elections. Tlio fact that the re
publican vote of Vermont and Maine
foil below that of four years ago , with
which comparison is made , is regarded
by Mosai'3. Hurrity und Dickinson as
evidence that "the btrong tendency of
public sentiment is with tno domoc-
rac ) ' , " and they remark that "our
frienclH everywhere are entitled to take
fresh courage from these results. "
It is astonishing from what small
things ttio average politician and
these gentleman are not above the average -
ago will gather hope , Ono would suppose -
pose that a republican plurality in Ver
mont of over 10,000 and in Maine of
about 12,000 , oven though not bo largo
as four years ago , would bo regarded by
the opposition as sulllclontly formidable )
nt this juncture , but the democratic
chairmen see in it n , ' 'toiidoncy" and
they make haute to notify their pvtv : of
the discovery. Well , lot us inquire as
to what substantial ground there is for
the assumption that the republican vote
in Vermont nnd Maine menus a ten
dency of public sentiment toward the
As to Vermont the full vote is at
hand , and It shows that while the re-
publicuiib cast uoino ! ) ,00f ) votesloss , than
in 18SS the democrats mada no gain ,
simply holiilirg their vote of four years
ago. The prohinitionlats made a gain
of u few hundred. What became of the
republican voos that wore apparently
lost ? Why they merely utnyod away
from tlio . It
polls. was evidently n case
of Inattention to political duty. Many
'persons , in the rural districts" particu
larly , dlu not t'llco the trouble to vote ,
fooling , as is too often and tou generally
the case , that their votes wore' nut
needed. Undoubtedly these voters will
return to a sense of their duty In No
vember .and glvo the candidates of the
republican party an old-time plurality.
Inasmuch as the democr-Hio vote was
not incrcabod tlio "tendency of public
sentiment" discerned by Messrs. llar-
rlty and Dlckhidon will hardly bo soon
by anybody else.
The full ngtiroi for Maine are not yet
reported , but there U reason to expect
that like those of Vermont they wilt
bhow that the democrats did no' moro
than hold their own. The decline In
the republican vote ns compared with'
1888 Is fairly explained by the fact that
the Australian ballot law first wont , into
effect at the late election , and not only
did many republicans stay away from
the polls but the mistakes made in
marking ballots , which necessitated
their exclusion from the count , told
most heavily against the republicans.
Furthermore , there was too much apathy
growing out of ovbrconildonco , and this
may do good In arousing republicans to
action in November. It will bo remem
bered that In the gubernatorial election
of 18SO the republicans lost the state ,
being defeated by an "alliance of demo
crats and groonbackors on governor , a
result which made the democrats nil
over the country jubilant. But Maine
gave her electoral vote to Garllold , and
undoubtedly she will give Harrison a
plurality this year as largo as that of
four years ago.
The democratic managers arc whist
ling to keep their courage up.
Tno societies of Old Time and Mili

comprise a body of men who wore of in-
ostlmuulo service to the government in
the period of its greatest peril. The re
bellion gave a tremendous impetus to
the development of telegraphy in the
United , States. A demand was made
upon tlio inventive ) ingenuity of tlio
country for methods that would broaden
the scope and usefulness of the telegraph -
graph , and the men in the sorvlco con
tributed largely to the improvements
and advances that resulted from this de
There wore no moro patriotic men
than these who engaged in the military
tolcgrapli service of the government. It
involved danger , hardship mid almost
incessant work. The operators in the
field learned some of the severest les
sons of military life , and as a rule their
lines were not cast in pleasant places.
They wore nn absolutely loyal body of
men. Knowing the very innermost
secrets of military operations , there is
no record of one of them having ever
botraynd the conlidenco reposed in him.
They wore men of courage who n3vor
hesitated to accept any duty to which
they were assigned and never faltered
in Its performance.
Such were the intelligent , patriotic ,

entertained , nnd novbr has she had

It is the habit of the mugwump
friends of Grover Cleveland to profess
to love him for the onernics ho has
made , meaning the mon in his own
party who have opposed nnd assailed
him. This implies that they conceive
themselves to bo superior beings , nnd
that as Mr. Cleveland has courted their
favor and thereby lost the respect o'f
many democrats ho is therefore a man
of their own kind and worthy to bo the
object of their most affectionate regard.
But a great change has lately token
plno in the attitude of these immacu
late special champions of tlio ox-pres
ident. They have seen the handwriting
on the wall in the state of Now York ,
mid in hhecr desperation they turn to
the enemies that Cleveland hns made
and appeal for help. Murphy and
C'rokcr and Shcohnn and Hill have
been pursunucd , it is said , to withhold
their liiiiids from the work no longer.

There tire many the isands of Grand
Army veterans in the wobt who will bo
very glad to see the distinguished Now
York orator who so eloquently and
truthfully represented their attiludo
and expressed their sentiments in re-
.sh.ot | to the candidacy of Grover Cleve
land. Mr. Cocicran is one of the en
emies that Cleveland has made , and as
they belong to the same hostile camp
they will naturally have a fellow-feeling
for the orator who is about to move
upon our works. Wo welcome Bourke
Cockran as a democrat who has a cor
rect conception of what thu old voter/ins
want or who at loust knows what they
do not want. The season of veterans'
reunions is now at an end , but if the
eloquent Now Yorker will keep right
on toiling the country what the battle-
scarred defenders of the union do not
w.mt they will give him more ovations
than he ever experienced before in his
life. There is a splendid field for him
in thu woat. for tills country is full of
vetcr.ins of the war.
The enemies that Mr. Cleveland has
made uro legion. Not , alone the power
ful politicians of Tammany , but thou
sands of union veterans scattered all
over the land , with other thousands of
their sympathizers , will have to be
counted in that company.

Tin : blttorquarrol that has boon going
on for some months between the demo
cratic factions In NJW Jersey came
near culminating In the breaking up of
the state convention at Trenton , It is
many years since the Now Jersey democ
racy has been so hopelessly divided and
so poorly prepared to make a successful
campaign. Exclusive of Hudson county ,
which embraces Jersey City mid sevornl
suburban villages , the state hns given
republican pluralities in the last four
presidential elections. Several causes
iMW work together to demoralize ) and
divide the Now-Jersey democrats , and
it Is believed by good judges of the
situation in both parties that the chance
of carrying the state for Cleveland this
year 1s very slender. Now Jor.soy Is a
manufacturing state and is therefore op
posed to free trade. Thousands of tier
cltt/ons of both parties are Interested in
manufacturing enterprises , while thou
sands of others are wage earners nnd
therefore favor protection. Add to this
the fact that the legislature of the state ,
strongly domocratlo in both branches , is
on record in favor of the anthracite coal
combine , nnd ills notdlfllcult to see that
the republican outlook there is brighter
than It has boon before in many years.
