Had congress adjourned without passing any

not felt constrained to call nn extra session.
If the president shall permit this bill to be
come a law no party would dare to propose
tearing It to pieces again at onco. Mr.
Cleveland's term will not expire until March ,
1897. His veto cannot be overridden by the
next congress and the congress to bo elected
In 1S9G will not meet for more than a year
afterwards. Even these who are most dis
appointed In the bill will soon come to con
sider three years of peace preferable to fur

of the republican party are not changed by
yesterday's event. Loyal to protection as
the compass to the polar star , the republican
party will never rest until genuine protec

ceived a blow , treasonable but also transi
tory. Republican principles are Immutable ;
the prosperity of the American people Is as
sacred as any object that ever Invited the
support of loyal citizens. The dignity of
American labor Is an Issue too precious to be
disregarded by the , party which effaced from
labor the stigma of slavery.
The Advertiser says : The truth of the
matter Is It makes little difference now -nhat
democracy does or what It may do. It has
been tried by the country and found want-
Ing. The people now realise the truth nnd
force of Mr. Dlalne's remark that , by reason
of their long absence from power , the demo
crats have lost the capacity to govern. There
are two democrats who can extract excep
tional pleasure from this transaction that
seals the doom of the Cleveland and free
trade democracy. One of them Is Arthur P.
Gorman of Maryland and the other Is David
13 Hill of New York. They have the satis
faction of knowing that they have made their
enemy In the white house their bondsman
and forced him to do their bidding.
The Evening Post says : We abate noth
ing from our abhorrence of the surrender of
both houses of congress for the time being to
an odious monopoly when we say that the
tariff bill at the present time was necessary
to the prosperity of the country. People
must earn their bread and butter In sunshine
and In rain , In storm and calm. We might
have dragged on another twelve months In
the same mire that we wallowed In for
eighteen months and yet have been no nearer
victory. We should have preferred to fight
on till the people couldp renounce their ver
dict upon Gorman , Drlco , Smith and Camden
Dtit we acknowledge the force of Chairman
Wilson's speech In which he said that he
had done everything In hla power and that
he could do no more ho could not oven hold
his own suppoiters together any longer.

PITTSDURG , Aug. 14. The passage of
the tariff bill has already made Itself felt
In this district by marked revival In busi
ness. Stocks In all lines of manufactures
had been reduced to a minimum , especially
In Iron , etcol and glass. Today several
largo orders wore received by local manu
facturers and many more are expected. In
some lines of business the demand began
yesterday as soon as the passage of the
tariff bill was assured , and the telegraph
wires were kept busy last night with orders
for goods. It Is assorted thnt a slight re
duction In wages will bo necessary In the
case of glass workers , tin plate men and the
workmen In some branches of the Iron and
steel trade , but this has been conceded , the
scales generally allowing for reductions to
flt the tariff changes.

Letters received from Mary W. Nlles , M ,
U. , of Cantcn , China , state that while tin
plague Is on the decrease In Hong Koug tin
situation In Canton Is worse than ever anc
that nearly all parts of the city are Infected
Cholera has also broken out und Is adding tc
the distress of the people. The authorities
seem to bo powerless to check the progress
of the black death or to suppress the out
breaks of fury ngalnst the foreigners.
It Is hard to understand the fanntlc.il ex
citement Into which the natives ore worked
by the progress of the disease , nnd the real
cause Is dlfllcult to ascertain. At present the
"holing pan" cry Is raised by the natives
They say that fragrant baths , fragrant words
on paper or tablets are nt the bottom of the
disease. The Chinese always have somctliliif
to smell about them , and when there Is nn
epidemic nround they are holding these
things to their noses all the time they are
111 the street. They ward oil the mnell of the
foreigner when they scent him from afar.
Deads made of camphor and carbolic balls
are favorite ornaments during any epidemic ,
and occasionally ono sees women going
around with zinc Inhalers filled with euca
lyptus oil. This fad Is taken advantage of
by the foreign traders , who sell all kinds of
"smelling things" to the natives.
From this fact came the suspicion that at
tempts were being made to poison the Chinese.
Posters sprang up all over the city In n
night warning the people ngalnst buying nny
of these poison bags. Then , to prove that the
bags or tablets were poison , some of the
Chinese made poison bags and distributed
them around and said they came 'rom the
foreigners They also poisoned the well In
front of the senate house In Macao , and for
this act several Chinamen are now under ar
rest. One of these posters put up In the city
of Macao Is signed by the Ming Sln-Tong
( Good Knowing society ) and the newspaper
\\ali Tsz Yat Po says It reads as follows
"For some time the black plague has been
raging In Hong Kong and Canton , and this
calamity has filled every heart with con
"Now , another misfortune has befallen us.
There are persons who have been distribu
ting little sacks containing aromatic sub
stances. the smell of which causes Imme
diate death. Moreover , there are some per
sons who have been throwing poison In the
wells , so that all those who dilnk of them
"All this Is done with an homicidal In
tent , which Is most detestable.
"Tho epidemic might bo attributed to fate ;
but the spreading of aromatic substances
and the throwing of poisons Into the wells
are the work of men who are endeavoring
to Increase th evil because poison can be
"We , who are friends of the people , could
not refrain from inquiring as to the cause
of all this , so ns to eradicate the evil.
"Wo have ascertained that all this comes
from the French missionaries , who by means
of cunning design ( their hearts bolng like
those of wolves ) are desirous ot spreading
the panic amongst the Chinese.
"It Is they who surreptitiously spread the
n ilson so as to do harm to the people.
"They have conspired with the lawyer ,
Jose da Sllva , who lives In Rua Central , ( ed
itor of a Spanish paper in Macoa , the Inde
pendent ) . and It Is he who has been engaging
agents to distribute these aromatic sub
stances to spread poison.
"In truth the French missionaries' hearts
are like those of wolves , and Sllva Is their
"Ho Is therefore the more worthy of hatred
"The following has been resolved amongst
men of letters and the people : Those who
really desire to get rid of the traitor are
Invited to avail themselves of dynamite , tor
pedoes and subterraneous mined. In the
Ilrst place , his home ought to bo burnt down ,
ind then they should discharge a pistol
limed at his heart.
"It Is necessary to kill him ; and it Is only
then that the people will live in peace , It Is
3tily then that they will not have any more
"Try hard , bo steadfast , and have courage.
"It Is for this and that the above Is made
As a result of the posting ot this In
cendiary document a plan was formed to
lestroy all the foreigners and their houses ,
liut the premature assaults on two lady
lectors gave warning of the plot and It was
frustrated. When Miss Dr. Halvorson was
rescued from the mob of Chinese In Canton
: ho natives had secured a barrel of Kerosene
ind were about to put her in it and burn her

Among the queer Ideas of the Chinese
ibout the plague is ono that. In order to
ircserve themselves , the English are spread-
ng death among the Chinese , and that for
jvory Chinaman who dies ono Englishman

'amous general , the pilnco of the black fiagjf
< Illed so many French in the French war
t-Imt now the French are taking revenge ,
ind for every man they lost a Chinaman
It Is believed that unless the plague ceases
