London. MOT. ."?The Englls'i press In still
mainly cciupied wlth the congenial taak of
nolntlng oul the morol of the American electlon.
Every j.nirnal has a leader on the aubjoet, and
many have interviewa with business men on
the probable effects on Engllsh trade. From
Glasg.w, Hradford. Manchester and Llverpool
aaeorta are already recelved that manufactur
?rs have aeenred large orders from Amerlca
?ince Tuesday. There la no reason to doubt
that Btmllar orders had already been received
bv mail throughout Fngland, with the stlpula
tlon that the gooda should not be ahlpped unless
MoKinlev were elected. In Hradford, where the
exports to the Cnited States have been declln
Ing sinc> January. and where the deereaae of
last rronsh over the correspondlng month of
IJtJl.'i aag 9ljBli,WK a great ircrease of trade
j,now eonfrdentry expected, and orders are al?
ready comlng in.
The followrog paragraph appears ln "The
Llverpool Post: "It la believed ln Llverpool
that afcKlaley will put on a new tarlff on cer

ample tlme for ahipments of goods to escape

LlverroM Ideas of the celerlty wlth whlch
tariff leaislatlon can be effected may need cor
rectlon. but the expectation is genera! in Eng?
land that American trade wlll bo-ome brisk at
once. and that English manufacturers may as

It fails to polnt out r.anv the recent deflclts of
revenuea undor the Wttaon act can be over
come and conwrted into surplus wlthout taking
up the tariff question. No Kngllsh Chancellor
of the Exi hequer could remaln long ln offlce

to belleve that. wlth a rise of flve or seven points

Mr. Mable; "we have all been ln the llttle school
