Blaine Finds His Progr Toward
Reciprocity Hamperod.
FEPDBLICAH CONFERENCE NEXT WEEK.
Tbe FerM Bill DfradRepublian S-ea-
aters to Inlrudow Bills to Amend
the MeKinley Law.
Members of Congress are coming In
pretty rapidly, and by the middle of
next week It is expected that most of
them, nt loast of tho Hcpubltcans, will
be bore. The short session Is near nt
band, and It will have plenty of busi
ness cut out for It. Tho regular annual
appropriation bills will occupy tho at
tention of Congrees largely to the ex
clusion of cvetythlng else. Whatever
other business Is accomplished can only
be dono by consent of the Committee on
Utiles that I, If tho system In force
during the last session Is to prevail In
this, which will probably bo tho case.
Tho Ilepubllcan members will hold n
meeting the last of next week to discuss
and decide, If possible, the policy to bo
pursued by tho majority In the waning
hours of Its power.
It Is the general opinion of Republi
cans tbat the Force bill Is dead beyond
tho power of resurrection. It Is not
thought thcro will bo any serious at
tempt to revive It. Neither will thcro
be, In nil probability, any pattlcular
effort tnado to chnngo tho rules of tho
St note on tho lines of the present llnuie
rules These projects nre believed to
be under scvcrnl hundred tons of tlebri
dislngod by tbe ricent political ava
lanche. It Is also claimed that n numbr of
Ilepubllcan Senators will Introduce
hills to amend and modify the Tariff
law. The Senators from the Western
States, such as l'lumb, I'nddcck and
I'ctilgrew. who openly voted ogalnst
the MeKinley bill, will undoubtedly
endeavor to secure the placing of certain
articles, blndlnir twine, for Instance, on
tbe free list, and to reduce the dulv on
certain other Importations. They
will probably be joined In
these measures by other Ile
publlcan Senators and llepresenta
lives from the West In their efforts to
bring about a considerable inodlflcrtlon
of the tariff. It Is well known that
teveral Western Senators voted for the
JicKInley bill under tho stress of parly
discipline, as did also a large minority
of Itppubllcan Representatives. Their
misgivings as to the effect the measure
would have on their constituents have
been more tbsn fulfilled by the outcome
of the elections. They hold that If
their party Is to recover its
lost ground in tbe West and Northwest
It must bow to the will of the people
and Ion er the tartlf In certain directions.
It It safe to say that all the Republican
Senators and Representatives west of
tbe Mississippi, and some of them east
of ii, take this view of the matter and
will join hands In tbe effort to make It
effective.
Kven Sir. Blaine rinds himself serl
outly handicapped in working out his
plan for reciprocity by the MeKinley
law. Tbe duties he intended to use to
accomplish his purpose havo been re
moved by tbat measure. He waste 1
them, particularly the duty on sugar,
to remain Intact. He could trade on
tbe sugar duty with Spain to obtain
reciprocity with Cuba. So, too, with
the products of the countries of South
America. Rut be was opposed by Reed
and MeKinley and tbey had their way.
lie U therefore compelled to operate
oh a p llllcal, rather than on aa eco
nou leal basis. He is placed la tbe at
titude of a beggar going, hat la kaad,
to ask a favor. The South American
siattsmen aie astute, and, seeing their
advantage, Hill drive bard bargalas
The wore especially, as they can't help
but see that the drift of public
sentiutent In this country is
loweid lower tailif duties
and ia favor of reciprocal trade rela
tions with them. Tbe power glvea to
lbe President to restore duties after a
tine oa tbe products of a gives country
unless it grant reciprocity Is vague aau
unsatisfactory at beat, aau oae aot to be
lightly esercUed. asul ia fact aot likely
to be exercised at all. Mr. Blalae is
proeeedisuc as rapidly toward reci
procity as he cast, but ke Sails his pro

It will Ire recollll that once tiptn

dev'w ways ami means of clrctirti
renting their enemy, the cit.
It was proposed to hang abmt
tl e neck of the cat a bell, which
would, by Its ringing, warn the rats of
tl e approach of their enemy. This
proposition was hailed with delight and
adopted amidst tumultuous rodentlfer
ottt enthusiasm. When It had In a
measure subsided, volunteers to fasten
tbe bell about the neck of the cat were
called for. Not a rat volunteered.
On the contrary, they all remembered
pressing engagements elsewhere and
silently slunk away. So to this day the
cat has not been belled.
Twoyeaisago tbe Hon. William D.
Ovu n was elected to Congrew for the
third time from the Tenth Indiana dls
tilct. Ills plurality was 1,130 and his
majority 018. He was one of those
overtaken by the landslide. He was
one of the three Republicans olected to
Congrew from Indiana In 1888. The
other two were General Thomas M.
llrowne of the Sixth district and Joseph
R. Clicaillc of the Ninth. General
Hrnwno declined to be n candidate again
and Mr. Chcadle got lett In the nomi
nating convention.
Mr, Owen was renominated only to bo
beaten. One of the minor causes which
led to his defeat was the publication In
the Indianapolis Sentinel, tho Demo
cratic State organ, of some stories to
the iflcct that Mr. Owen was Induced,
through the promise of receiviug the
decoration of tho Crown of Italy, which
carries with It knighthood and makes
tho recipient n "cousin" of tho King
of Italy, to Interfere In tho con

army of President Rogran and he Is lit
full possession of the Capital City with
the exception of one barrack where tbe
nmnantofthe defeated army Is Im

Rogran began his march upon Tegu

forces. At times the skirmishing was
vi ry bloi.dy and was kept up until after
nightfall aud neither side lighted tires
at night.
At daybreak yesterday Rogran, with
perhaps 3,000 soldiers, advanced upon
the capital. Sanchex bad all the ap
proaches guarded with artillery, which
did iflicttve set vice. Three pieces
commanded the mala highway to Ta
mara, with a large reserve of Infantry
la tbe rear. This position was charged
several times by Rogran's forces before
it was carried. Sanchez's troops were
at last, after hard righting, routed, and
took refuge In the capital.
Street after street w as cleared by Rog

last Friday fell Into the handi of
Sanchez, were recaptured oae by one.
The loss so far has been very heavy oa

New York, Nov. 15. Sir. J. .1.
Richardson, n member of the National
Democratic Committee for Iowa, was In
this city Thursday, returning to Ids
homo In Davenport, Iown, after a visit
to his birthplace In Vermont. Mr.
Richardson was one of the most effect
lvo workers In tho Presidential cam
palgn of 1888. Ry reason not only of
Ills political position, but ns editor and
proprietor of tho Demoentt In bis
home, he has gained a commanding In
llucr.ee In the politics not only of bis
ori n State, but of the West. In addi
tion to this lie operates n large farm, so
tbat, through all his various employ
ments, he comes Into direct communi
cation with a largo number of peoplo
of varied employments and Interests.
"While the Democrats of the West
arc surprised at the magnitude of the
victory," said Sir. Richards )n to a
TYniM reporter, "It was only a matter
of degree Tbey were thoroughly c in
vlnccd'ttmt the Democrats would not
only control the House In the Fifty
HTi nd Congress, and tbat by a good
iiibJ rlty, but they were iiiuafly confl
dint tbat they would make large gains,
not only In Representatives, but In -Stutc
olllcirs throughout the Wes'. The
wlio'c West has been restless for a long
time, and when the MeKinley bill ctme
up'n them, nllhougb It was not sprung
suddenly. It fixed the opinion of the
people of the West that something was
wrong, and that something radical was
necessary to cure It.
"So far as Presidential preferences
are concerned. It U safe to say that a
large proportion of the Democrats of
Iowa and adjotnlng States are at
strongly devoted to the fortunes of Sir.
Cleveland as at any time during his
political carter. They tint only Ml eve
In the man personally, but they were
thoroughly prepared for his historic
message of 1487. No steps have thus
far been taken, but In spite of the fact
that it is a good while until the next
National Convention, It Is certain that
If present conditions continue, the West
will be practically n unit for Sir. Cleve
land's renomlnation. It will not make
much difference, perhaps none at all,
what the action of New York may be,
although some timid ones are Inclined
to ask what tbe Democrats of the K n
plre State are likely to do. There Is
with us, as I Had everywhere, a senti
ment tbat Sir. Cleveland has made the
I'tue, tbat he represents It at Its very
best estate, aud tbat, If he lives ami will
consent to be a cindldate. he ought to
be nominated. The victory of the
Democrats la Iowa, as well as la the
West, Is largely due to the decisive
action of the youna men everywhere.
These have recognized la Sir. Cleve
land a worthy leader, aad tbey are es
tbutiasilc la following him. It Is. there
foie. safe to assert that so far as any
one can predict, the West will be almot
a unit In his favor.
''Rut while there is very little feel
ing la the West la favor of sectional
candidates, It Is certain that If Sir.
Cleveland should decliae to be a can
didate or for any other reason should
be out of the natd, ao other Eastern
maa would be thought of for tke aoasl
tielloa. Is our own State ve have a
most excellent Governor la Horace
Roles, elected after au absence from
lower oa Ike part of bis party for
thirty four years. No Governor iu the
West, ia recent tlaies, has so impressed
biatself upoa bU own people aad bU
rtfgbbois as kas Sir Rotes. His ad
mlbittrsiioa of bis odice has beau cleaa
aad vUorou. yet digalned. Ill
speeches during the latecmtptlgii were
able aad progressive aad did aiuck to
help bis party ia his owa State aad
others. lie will be reaosulaated aext
year aad will be re elected. Wbea
this kas kappeaed a good auay people
are likely to hear about him. He, biet
setf, is a taodest, retinae: usaa. who
sever will push huaself iato prosal
aeace. But be has frieads who are
pretty sure to see to it tbat kis aasae Is
prcbeated to tbe Karioaal Coavaatloa
ior a place oa tbe Preaideatial ticket.
If tbe senliiaeat for Sir. Cleveland coa
tiaues, Mr. Boies' same will ao dbt
be Mcaeated for ice PtestdesH, aad
with the cordial support of his owa
State aad of others. There is ao taaa
ia the West ot anywhere else better
qualined for either the nrt or tbe
aecoad place tbaa be.
"If Sir. Clevetaad aad be should he
tbe candidates oa a national ticket. It
would be a curious coiacldesMsc, as
both of these were fortaeriy citkeas of
Buffalo. Wbea Mr Clevlaad raa for

"1 am told that Poatmater-Oeiteral
Warramaktr's annual report wilt take
even more radical grounds In sunpnrt
of a Ooreinment scheme of poilal teleg
raphy tban he has maintained In the
past. This ia partly due to the strong
cxpieMtom of public approval which
came from commercial I unites all over
the country when the hearings were
had before the House Postotftce Com
mlltee during the last session. These
m tiles, by resolution ami otherwise,
setmetf to make plain that Ihe time 1ml
ce me for the Potofllce Department to
take hold. I Infer that the facts
brought out in the suits or the Western
Union against the Government have
also bad something to do with Str.
Wanamaker's real for postal teleg
raphy. "If ha can show Con. Et ess that the
charges heretofore made liave been ex
tortionate' and that a big saving would
be made by a postal system, It will do
much to commend the Idea to the legis
lators. I bear It Is said that Sir. Gould's
nlleec-d raid on the Postmaster Gen
eral s Reading stock was a vicious drive
at Sir. Wanomakcr for not giving up
the notion. After tho arguments made
by Dr. Norvln Green nealnst postal
telegraphy, the Little Wlzird could
not understand why a sensible public
ofllclal should persist in advocating the
system. Re that as It may, the one
thing certain Is that the Postmaster
General has come up smiling, more de
termined thnn ever to keep tho agitation
going, and he will press the subject on
Congress. The system he proposes does
not contemplate tho Government buy
ing existing; lines which may be an
other reason why Sir. Gould Is so bit
terly opposed to It.
"Sir. Wanamaker's Idea Is for the
Government to start In by doing a con
tract business with existing lines or
with new ones that are willing to accept
the terms prooed. Then alter a fair
trial the question of State or private
onnetshlp can bo settled.
"It Is doubtful whether nny positive
recommendation will be made reg trdlnir
teduct-d ccean .postage. The visit of
Str. Hennlcker Ileaton of Ihe Rrltlsh
Parliament gave an Impetus to the
dlicusslon of tbe matter, and the drift
of sentiment has been favorable to It.
Yet the revenues of the Postotllee Da
partmtmt will hardly justify this
country In entering on the experiment
for the present.
"The Louisiana Lottery law has been
In (.iteration only n few months, but
enough Is shown of lis wqrklnics to
more than justify Us passage. Tbe fall
Ine r IT In tbe business of the New
Orleans city postotllce and other centres
of lottery patronage has been enormom,
and all the indications are that the
month r Is staggering; under the
blow given It. The action of the great
express companies In deciding not to
help the lottery company evadu
the law will further strengthen tbe De
psilmcnt In Its warfare agilnst the
fraudulent business, and the necessity
of tedious court proceedings to deter
mine the exact responsibility of the
companies will be avoided.
"Tbe other branches of the Govern
ment nave co operates neartuy wun me
Postotllce Department In carrying out ,
the provisions of the law. while some
nice questions have arisen as to the con
struction of the act. The rule of tbe
common sense Interpretation has been
followed so steadily tbat I understand
the Postmaster Genersl villi not be
under tbe necessity of rerommeadiag
any amendment at tne coming session."

estimated at C 15,000,000. The estate
on a depreciated value shows a surplus

but ptotracted liquidation will follow.'
Another dispatch says that the guar

stated to amount to 110,000.000. The

tbat the crisis Is over and the f.illuru

The reports from London concerning
tbe affairs of Raring Rros. acted as a

here this morning and ctused a renewal
of tbe apprehension which existed la
the early daya of the week when stocks
were tumbling at a ruinous rale.
This morning there was a rush to sell
Immediately upon the opening of the
market and the selling increased as the
morning wore on. Trie dealings were
on an enormous scale and were accom

The announcement that Raring Rros,
would Immediately commence liquida

selling witnout reearu to toss or gam.
After 11 o'clock the advices from
Loudon were more favorable, but this
did not prevent the selling movement,

liTSBorr, Nov. 15 In his spwech to
his constituent at Lewis upon the new
United Stales tariff lefittalioti, the
Right Hon. Sir Lyon Playfalr. after
giving Ihe tariff history of the United
States, said that the promoters of the
JtrKlnley bill sought to prove lhat the
measure was needed In order to cquallM
the difference between the higher
wages of Ihe United Stales and the
lower wages of Kurope, but their argu
ment would not bear examination.
Time was no Intimate connection, he
said, between the tarllT and wages. As
a whole, wages In America hid already
been reduced under a high tat 1 IT, and
there seemed to be no tendency to ratse
them. Wages were highest In the un
protected Industtlts and lowest In the
protected ones.
Sir Ljon cited a host of statistics to
show that the consumer always paid the
extra duties. He entered upon a long
discussion of the elTects of the tarllT,
contending lhat they would lie dlis
trnus to American agriculture. The
farmers would And lhat while their for
cUn markets were dwindling every ne
c sslij was Increasing In price merely
t enrich a few nianufactU'crs
He thought that the fruiters of Un
hid might be inspected of a overt al
tick upon Can in Id. He dic'artil Hir
Caiikda Wi uld be able to supply Orel'
Rtllaln with all Ihe food she now iron
fiom the Unlicd States In lest thi-i
iwintyjcars the United States woul I
bate no surplus food to send, so It wis
to Ktifiluml'i Interest to aid In duvelo,)
Inir Canadian husbandry.
The natural effect of the McKtntey
art, he maintained, would be to dnw
Ktmland and Canada closer together.
If Knelaml bought from Canndi, Can
ada would be i impelled to buy from
Rngland. If Canada would reconstruct
tier tarllT on the principles of revenue.
Rurope and Asia would contribute to
her future commercial prosperity. She
could become one of the greatest and
most prosperous countries In the world
by maintaining her pillttcal Independ
ence If ihe oidv had a profouoder con
viction of the vast beaerlts of courtier
clal freedom.
He argued that the protection of
commerce naturally leel t tbe restric
tion of Immigration, and would Inve
an adverse effect upon an already un
satisfactory population. Then bow. he
asked, were Increasing manufactures
lo be absorbed by decrctdag con
sumers? Referring to the American Meat In
spection bill, Sir Lyon declared that the
empowering of tbe President bv Con
gress to boycott nations was a brutum
j'ulmen unwottby of a great a a! I in.
Tbe boycott had never hitherto been
lecngulzed by Intern ulonal law.
He considered lhat the reciprocity
clause iu tbe MeKinley bill had the
same direction, but a deeper meaning.
It was a safety valve to pi event the high
pressure from blowing up protection.
He believed that Mr. IlUiae intended
It rather as a reciprocity clause than
as a retaliation clause. If the United
States was to continue as a nation of
protection, its evils msy be lessened by
tbe RUmaickian policy of ul dt.
Coruwemtng oa the recent elections
in tbe United Slates. Sir Lyon said
that the protectionists were not des
tioyed, but that tbey would right ia tbe
future with their flags furled- He de
clared tbat already there were signs 1b
Germany, Italy aud elsewhere IB Ku
ioe of flaases of distress ia tbe pro
led ion csuips. 1b conclusion. Sir Lya
said he hoped, though Kuglaad might
he Icjuied for a ye.tr or two by tbe
United States tariff legldttoa. she
Kcu'd aot dream of reprisals.
The 2'iW, In a long editorial, says
tbat Kir Lyon Playfair's speech Is the
MMt complete cpoure yet published

futility aad absurdity of the MeKinley
tarbf . Tbe opponent of high protec

Mr. Parnell was neither preheat nor

Counsel for the respondent, Mm.

call witness on the part of his client,
nor should he participate In tka pro
