THE BUSINESS DECLINE.
The Clearing-house returns for the last
week are far less satisfactory than they
have been for a year past. It is becoming
apparent that the business "boom "has
been ridden too hard, and that the future
has been discounted too freely. When the
rise in commercial and manufacturing ac
tivity set in, the Record-Uniov pointed
out the danger which now appears to have
actually been realized. It was then evi
dent to the careful observer that the
"boom" was being pushed too rashly,
and that the situation did not justify the
extravagant expectations which were in
dulged. The manufacturers, who had been
losing money for years, were, however,
quite unable to restrain their impatience
to recover their losses. They plunged into
the work of production, and they at the
same time ran up the prices of everything.
This wa3 testing the genuineness of the
business revival too severely. It was not
linn enough on its feet to stand an era of
high prices right on the top of a long de
pression, and the result was that the mar
ket began to weaken under the discipline,
and in a short time the demand
declined. At first the greedy manu
facturers paid no attention to these
signs of distress, but as no further recovery
took place, and a3 the tendency to stagna
tion increased and spread, they at length
took the alarm, at^xl just now some of them
are exhibiting apprehensions which are
■probably no more just were their pre
vious great expectations. What is wanted
now, is moderation and patience, and revision
■of the tariff. If the political parties could
be prevailed upon to forego their quadren
ial duel over the Presidency long enough
to inquire into and attend to the material
interests of the country, politics would
suffer nothing from the breathing-spell, and
business would be the gainer. It is proba
ble, however, that our business men will
have to learn, through a still sharper ex
perience than they have yet had, how nec
essary it is for them to force their interests
upon Congress, and how little that body
can be depended upon to act intelligently
on anything that is not a " live issue."

GERMAN GOVERNMENTAL POLICY.
Bismarck is consolidating the German
Empire by destroying the liberties of the
ancient free cities of Germany. Hamburg,
Lubeck, Bremen, and others of the old free
ports, are being attacked in turn, and it is
evident that the Chancellor intends to
push the work of centralization witli unre
lenting energy. At the same time the ex
pansion of the military policy which con
verts the empire into a camp, and which
subjects every citizen to the harassment
and injury of protracted army service, is
steadily driving out the most enersretic and
independent dements. Emigration from
Germany has never been to extensive as
now, and from year to year the tide swells
higher. Between the fatuous protective
policy which is fettering German consum
ers, and the iron military system which
compels every man to sacrifice many of the
best years of life to an unprotitable em
ploymect, the German people are being
dealt with very hardly, and it is no won
der that they should seek in other coun
tries the freedom and the scope of enter
prise which are denied them at home.
Imperial and national grandeur are no
doubt very five things ; but they may be
purchased at too heavy a cost, and evi
dently this is the conclusion to which num
bers of the German people are coming at
SHERIDAN ON MARCHING TIME.
General Sheridan ha 3 solemnly asserted
that on one occasion, on the Oregon fron
tier, he marched troops at the rate of rive
miles an hour, for twelve hours in succes
sion. No doubt General Sheridan believes
his troops marched at this rate, and for
that length of time, but in the absence of
any scientific demonstration we must be
permitted to doubt the accuracy of his sta
tistic?. Five miles an hour is exceedingly
fast walking. There are very few veteran
pedestrians who could keep up such a rate
for half the time mentioned by the General.
And it is highly improbable, not to say im
possible, that a whole company or regi
ment should be found capable of so re
markable a feat. We suppect the truth to
be that General Sheridan has no very dis
tinct realization of what walking at the
rate of five niles an hour means.

THE EIGHTS OF DELEGATES TO IG
The San Francisco Alia is dissatisfied
with the action of the late Republican
State Convention in instructing the dele
gates to Chicago to vote for Blame, and
attempts to set up the position that this
action was not justified by any tangible
evidence that the mass of the party de
sired such a policy. As there is at present
much probability that many delegates from
other State Conventions will refuse to be
bound by their instructions, and as it
might appear at first sight that the right
to bolt was unconditional, and applied
equally in all cases, it is in order to exam
ine this question with some care. In the
first place it must be admitted that the
primary purpose of the appointment of
delegates to the National Convention
should be to represent the will of the ma
jority of the party as faithfully as possible.
To whatever extent this purpose is de
parted from, the true intent of all tucli
political action is defeated. If, for exam
ple, a State Convention is packed with the
friends of one candidate, and if that can
didate is not the choice of the majority of
the party in the State, the passage of
resolutions of instruction ought not to be
considered binding upon the delegates,
because it is obvious that these instructions
do not represent the real will of the party,
and because if the delegates adhere to them
they must go counter to the party choice.
But when the State Convention is con
trolled by the friends of one candidate,
and it is well understood that that candi
date is the first choice of the majority of
the party in the State, instructions to vote
for him must be regarded as binding, be
cause they unqestionably represent the will
of the party. In the present canvass we
have examples of both kinds. In New
York and Pennsylvania the State Conven
tions were packed in the interest of a
candidate who is evidently not the first
choice of the majority of the party in
either of those States. The delegates were
instructed to vote for that candidate, and
their instructions, if adhered to, can only
result in a defeat of the will of the party.
In California, on the other hand, the
State Convention faithfully represented the
will of the majority of the party. There
is no room for controversy on the statement
that James G. Blame is the favorite can
didate of three-fourths of the Republicans
in this State, and for any journal to pre
tend not to be aware of this fact is ridicu
lous. In instructing the delegates to Chi
cago, therefore, our Convention merely
carried out the popular will, and the proof
of this lies ia the universal acquiescence of
the party in the action of the Convention.
Had it sent the delegates uninstructed it
certainly would not have satisfied the
party, and had it instructed them for any
other candidate than Blame it would have
incurred general and earnest condemnation.
Under the circumstances, and knowing
what the rank-and-file wanted, it could
not have done anything else than what it
Where, however, the Conventions have
notoriously been put up by the "machine"
managers, as in New York and Pennsyl
vania, the case is altogether different.
There the delegates are called upon to
choose between representation of the " ma
chine," and representation of the party,
and if they decide for the latter they can
not be blamed. The "machine " managers
cannot set up the claim of bad faith aeainst
them, seeing that they themselves have
acted throughout in utter contempt of the
real opinions and wishes of the party.
They are usurpers, who have deliberately
undertaken to force the nomination of a
candidate not wanted by the party, and
their instructions are fraudulent in
es3encc, since they require the delegates
to ignore the will of the party, and to
pay allegiance to those who are iv open
opposition to that will. Should those
delegates refuse to be bound by their
instructions, therefore, they would ODly be
asserting the pre-eminence of their duty to
the party, and denying their allegiance to
the usurping "machine" managers; and
such a course would very evidently be in
the interests of good government. In this
State, however, there is no such ground ef
difference between the Convention and the
party. They are in complete harmony,
and the delegates to Chicago could conse
quently disobey their instructions only by
ignoring the will of the party. In other
words, while the Eastern delegates mu3t
outrage public opinion if they adhere to
their instructions, the California delegates
would do the same thing if they did not
adhere to their instructions, and herein
consists the fundamental distinction be
tween the cases. There has been no com
plaint among Republicans of the so
called " irouclad resolutions," and the
Alfa is entirely alone in its strange fault
finding. What the Convention could have
done other than what it did, our contem
porary does not appear to have made clear
to itself, but if it holds that the delegates
should have been scut to Chicago without
instructions, we must say that to have
taken that course would have necessitated
a very direct and inexcusable defiance
of the party will in the premises. No
bolting in the California delegation would,
in fact, be honorable or admissible, and
those who attempt to show that they could
fairly disregard their instructions have un
dertaken an impracticable task.
THE RAILROAD COMMISSION.
The resolution introduced by General
Stoneman at the meeting of the Railroad
Commission the other day was a very ex
traordinary one. He proposed that the
Commission should commit itself to an
opinion as to the proper maximum rate for
fares and freicht on the railroads of the
State, without possessing any knowledge of
the facts upon which to base a judgment.
The resolution was very properly rejected
by General Stoneman's colleagues, but it is
not an auspicious introduction to the labors
of the Commission that its oldest member
should attempt to take snap-judgment
upon a most vital qu«3tion iv this way.
The Commission was instituted for the
j purpose of investigating the whole railroad
j question, and in order to the attainment of
such knowledge on the subject as would
, f jrm the basis for an equitable and
! rational tariff readjustment, if that be
found possible. Such a proposition as Gen
eral Stoneman advanced could only be
brought forward with any justice after
the Commission had completed itj work
of inquiry and research, and had in its
possession all the data necessary to an mi
i telligent opinion. To ask the Commission
to give its opinion as to a fair maximum
rate of fare and freight charges in advance
of investigation, is to betray a total misap
prehension of the whole purpose of its or
ganization. Such an opinion could be
fiirniu'.ated by anybody as ■well as by a
Commission. Denis Kearney and the Sand
Lots could formulate it quite as intelli
gently as the three gentlemen who now
stand upon the threshold of their work.
When they received their commissions
from the Governor they did not at the
same time absorb any divine afflatus ca
pable of enabling them to reach just con
clusions without inquiry. Until they have
studied the whole railroad question they
are incompetent to express an opinion on
the rates of freights and fares, and this
fact Messrs. Cone and Beerstecher evident
ly appreciate. General Stoneman's reso
lution was a most irrational and unjustifia
ble one, and it is difficult to realize his
motive in introducing it. If he whhes to
manifest his regard for the public welfare
he would do well to begin by helping the
Board to get at the facts which can alone
furnish a rational basis for aiiy action.
The expression of "opinions" which rest
upon no demonstration, and in support of
which no data whatever are adduced, can
certainly not tend to further the settle
ment of the important problem with which
the Commissioners have to grapple, while
such exhibitions of fiightiness and eccen
tricity may easily create distrust of the in
telligence responsible for them.
There has occurred a great explosion in
Indian finances. The Liberal victory
having removed all motive and capacity
for concealment from the Indian Govern
ment, the fact is brought to light that the
Afghan war has cost about twice as much
as Lord Beaconstield declared it had, and
that consequently there is a deficiency of
four or five millions sterling in the Indian
Treasury. Of course an ingenious attempt
is made to explain the facts plausibly.
First the responsibility 13 thrust upon the
army. Then a number of unforeseen con
tingencies are called in to account for the
enarmous excess of expenditure over
estimates. It is obvious, however, that
this last explanation only makes matters
worse, for of course it was the business of
the Government to ascertain precisely
what drafts on the treasury were likely to
arise, and of course a well-administered
Government would not have been deceived
so grossly as to the extent of the demands
for money. The suggestion is in fact un
avoidable that the Tories knew that the
Afghan war was costing a great deal
more than they had declared it
would cost, and that they were
afraid to let the country know the truth.
Had they been successful in the late elec
tion they would no doubt have patched up
the Indian finances in some way, and have
managed to hide the ugly deficit for a time,
or until Lord Beaconsfield could have tried
some new speculation. Their crushing
defeat, however, has made it impossible to
keep up the pretense of economy any
longer, aud as the English people were only
reconciled to the Afghan war by the as
surances of the Government that it would
be carried on entirely at the expense of
India, and would entail no increase of tax
ation at home, the disgust and indignation
at this exposure will no doubt be very
great. The deficit is so large, and the
finances of India are in so very bad a con
dition, that England will almost certainly
have to bear the surplus expense, and this
will have a strong tendency to reconcile
everybody to the Liberal victory, aud to
render a near reaction in favor of the Con
servatives extremely improbable.

A gentleman who recently arrived at

that ten days are required to make the
trip from Seattle to the mines— one day by
steamboat, five by canoe and four over the
trail — ami that the total cost is about §15.
The only way to get tools or supplies into
the camp from tbe head of canoe naviga
tion is by packing them on one's back over
mountains all but impassible. A man, by
the greatest exertion and hardship, can
carry about sixty pounds, and four days
are required to make the trip. Flour,
beans and other act»al necessities can be
bought in the mines but at an advance of
2"> cents per pound above the price? at the
head of canoe navigation. He also says
that at this season it is literally impossible
to do anything in the mines, excepting on
one or two claims, and that all the men
who have gone in come out just as soon as
their supplies are exhausted. He thinks
the mines so situated that it will never be
possible to work them except by methods
impracticable except to men of capital.

New York, May Gth. — The Times says :
At the corner of Mott and Park streets stands
the Church of the Transfiguration, a sort of
Roman Catholic shrine, amid the filth aud
festering humanity of an exceedingly nonde
script neighborhood. It is in the very heart
of the Chinese quarter. Across the street
from it is a block of six or eight old buildings,
which, it is estimated, contained a week ago
a population of from 300 to 510 Chinamen,
with a restful sensation of having escaped the
wrath of Kearney and San Francisco hood
lums. The next Mock from Park street to
the lower end of Mott [sheltered 500 more,
and had its hotel and general travelers'
agency, where not less than 50 or CO swarthy
Asiatics weie usually quartered. The whole
Mongolian population of these two blocks
on Mott street has been calculated at some
what more than 1,000, living a life by iheni
sel yea, having their own institutions and form
ing a sort of city within a city. They ere
fully a3 orderly as and paid higher rents than
the population they superseded, and Mott
street landlords were not at ail averse to lis
teniDtr to their overtures. But in the mean
time they had completely isolated the Church
of the Transfiguration from its usual congre
gation. There were many complaints from
those who attended its services that they had
to cut their way through an army of " hay
thens" on Sunday to obtain access to the con
fessional, and something had to be done to
prevent the old church from being converted
into a grocery, with posters in strange lan
guages disfiguring the stone pillar-. In this
emergency action was taken with decision,
and the moon-eyed denizens of Mott street
woke up a few days ago. to find, that their
domiciles had passed into new hand*, and
they must vacate on May Ist, or at the expi
ration of their monthly holdings. The cor
poration had leased the whole series of tene
ment* from Pell street to Park, and refused
to let to Chinamen on any terms. Oilier laud
lords in the vicinity took the cue, although
they liked their tenants, and for the last week
a wholesale eviction has been goirg on. For
the most part the expelled tenants have suc
ceeded in finding apartments in the neighbor
hood. A tumble-down old rookery in Park
street that formerly paid the landlord 539 per
month with a miscellaneous tenantry, is now
rented for §80 per month to a colony of Chi
nese. In reveral other instances rents have
been doubled by shrewd landlords by taking
advantage of the demand thus created ; but
the general result has been only to scatter the
colony over a wider area, without extinguish
i.._ it. ;In front of one old rookery yesterday
afternoon a re|>orter counted two drays loaded
with indescribable household goods and three
carriages waiting to remove the inmates. ;' A
crowd, each costumed to his own fancy, num
bering from 150 to 200, was quartered at the
door, and the jargon and gesticulations were
bewildering. ;. At length each carriage took
vp > its freight of one or two families, and was
driven " away. - They were . determined to
